International Football

Which FPL assets are on international duty and when do they play?

Germany’s friendly with Argentina on Wednesday evening gets a week of international football underway in earnest.

As ever, there will be plenty of Premier League representation across the world and a nervous seven days awaits Fantasy managers whose assets are in action for their respective countries.

We’ve put together our usual club-by-club guide to which players will be away with their nations, detailing the countries they are representing and when their matches are scheduled for.

There are a few notable omissions from the list below, with several well-owned Fantasy Premier League assets having a welcome fortnight off.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) was poised to miss Egypt’s friendly with Botswana even before he picked up an injury in the win over Leicester City, so the premium midfielder has just over a fortnight to recover from a twisted ankle before Liverpool head to Old Trafford in Gameweek 9.

Sergio Aguero (£12.2m) is not part of the Argentina squad, while Raul Jimenez (£7.1m) has been given a well-earned breather by Mexico and will stay in the West Midlands following a gruelling few months with Wolves.

Alisson (£5.8m) remains absent from the Brazil set-up after only just returning to training, while Willian (£7.0m) and Fernandinho (£5.2m) have also not been included in the Selecao squad for their upcoming fixtures.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.0m), Paul Pogba (£8.4m), Anthony Martial (£7.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.1m) are among the players not representing their countries due to fitness issues, with Tom Heaton (£4.5m), Mason Greenwood (£4.4m) and Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) among the clutch of Fantasy assets who were initially called up but who then had to pull out because of injury – further details on the withdrawals can be found towards the bottom of this article.

After having the September international break off, Sadio Mane (£11.7m) will be representing Senegal – but his country face only one friendly against Brazil this Thursday, so the premium midfielder will have over a week to return to Merseyside.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s (£11.0m) owners wouldn’t have been too pleased to see the Arsenal striker called up for Gabon’s double-header against Burkina Faso and Morocco, with the last of those friendlies taking place on Tuesday evening.

Aubameyang has an extra two days to recover, however, with Arsenal taking on Sheffield United on the Monday evening of Gameweek 9.

The further good news is that there are relatively few matches being contested in the early hours of Wednesday morning in the Americas, with the likes of Argentina and Colombia instead playing friendlies in Europe.

Brazil contest two friendlies in Singapore but the last of those will kick off on Sunday afternoon (UK time), leaving plenty of time for the likes of Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m), Richarlison (£7.9m), Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) and Ederson (£6.1m) to return to their respective clubs ahead of Gameweek 9.

Also over in Asia, Son Heung-min (£9.8m) is part of the South Korea squad that take on Sri Lanka and North Korea in two World Cup qualifiers, with the last of those kicking off on Tuesday morning UK time.

Son had a similar schedule in the September international break but went on to play 90 minutes and record a 16-point haul in his first game back with Spurs.

Christian Pulisic (£7.2m), DeAndre Yedlin (£4.4m) and Lucas Torreira (£4.8m) are among the few players who are in action on Wednesday morning, with Yedlin and Pulisic set for a late return to England ahead of Chelsea’s meeting with Newcastle on Saturday afternoon.

Torreira, like Aubameyang, is not in Premier League action until Monday night in Gameweek 9.

    Vardy or Abraham. No Leicester attack.

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Do you have Mount?

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah

        1. Slitherene
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          Could consider Vardy then.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Tammy this gw.
      I'd definitely try N get both though

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        I have Aguero, Pukki + Haller with 2FTs.. Defo want C.Wilson and can afford Vardy. Just not sure whether I should have Tammy or Vardy

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          Tammy & Wilson.
          Vardy for Wilson after 2 gw's then

        2. DantheManinaPan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          Hmmm

          Personally think I'd put Wilson third behind the other two...

          Then again, those two are the highest XG overachievers for forwards in the game...

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Abe better value. But Vardy is also a good pick.

  2. dshv
    • 2 Years
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Vardy or auba

    Have maddison ??

    1. Slitherene
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Vardy
      I don't

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Vardy

      Would like to but so many good midfield picks its hard to have them all. Would have to go 3-5-2 to get him in.

      1. dshv
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        I have abraham and callum
        Too..

    3. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Easy Auba, at home playing the kind of teams he scored against

      Vardy away games mostly, Arsenal probably his best fixture tbf

  3. NeverLucky
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Without going back few pages, those owning Abraham, Wilson and Aguero who are you captaining?

    I am very tempted (assuming no surprises international break) to Captain Wilson v Norwich...

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Norwich turning into last seasons Huddersfield. Cap anyone playing against them.

    2. twoplustwo
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Captaining Wilson

    3. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Bought Wilson in for the cap, seems like a week it’s worth a punt

      Would be Son but Spurs form is off putting

  4. Gringo Kid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Pukki or Wilson for next 5?

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      willy season keeper

    2. Gregg Wallace
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Wilson's next two are good but then after that are pretty dire, can see a lot of people getting rid like they did in GW3

      1. Rik Waller
        • 2 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Make that his next 3... United at home being the 3rd

        1. Gregg Wallace
          • 4 Years
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          I'm not sure I agree, yeah United are a joke and we all like to make fun of them but they aren't poor defensively. Plus Bournemouth always struggle against them

      2. twoplustwo
        • 5 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        What? I see 5 good fixtures

        1. The Pope
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          This. How are the fixtures dire? What is this guy on

        2. Hint
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          I see 6

    3. JonBoy
      • 6 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      I feel like Norwich are in too much of a pickle to rely on. Wilson.

  5. Starky22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Pope
    Ota TAA Tomori
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount
    Wilson Haller Abraham

    GTG? Or look to get in Maddison and Auba for Mane and Haller??

  6. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    looking forward to bring in the first 3.9 million defender this season

  7. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Thoughts on this?

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Rico
    Mane Pepe Mount Maddison Sterling
    Wilson Tammy

    Button Ota Lundstram Greenwood

    Will probably look to upgrade Greenwood to Vardy at the expense of Pepe next week depending on how well I do.

  8. JonBoy
    • 6 Years
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Maddison or Vardy vs Burnley?

    I have both but I fancy my 5th midfielder at home (Adama) against Southampton's high line.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      That's if Traore starts.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Rebeal your current draft to me I am intriguing

        1. JonBoy
          • 6 Years
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          Pope Patricio
          TAA Pereira Lund Dunk Rico
          Mane KDB Mount Maddison Traore
          Vardy Wilson Tammy

          0.9 itb. Might do Rico to Boly if he rises once more.

          On WC.

          1. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 days, 12 hours ago

            That’s a great side. Rico > Boly a cool idea. Maybe KDB will still need another week if you’re lucky so you can unleash your Traore differential. Think you have nailed the right time to WC lovely fixtures for all your players

            1. JonBoy
              • 6 Years
              9 days, 12 hours ago

              Ta. This was the plan if all went well. Fingers crossed it continues!

    2. reubster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Gosh. Adama played 90mins against City. Good shout!

      1. JonBoy
        • 6 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Started the last 3.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Maddison is the better pick but Traore is a fun punt

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Depends who the striker That Vardy replaces would be

        1. JonBoy
          • 6 Years
          9 days, 12 hours ago

          It's a straight choice between the 3. No transfers.
          Have Wilson and Tammy as well as Vardy.

          1. Ask Yourself
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 days, 12 hours ago

            It’s madd dogg for me so it goes. Better value and more involved. Vardy chances coming very few and far between this season

            1. JonBoy
              • 6 Years
              9 days, 12 hours ago

              Food for thought. Vardy is a newcomer and I'm on WC so it's not set.

  9. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    9 days, 12 hours ago

    Will most likely bring CHO in place of pepe this gw near the deadline. Any hits needed after that? 4.6

    Pope

      Nah, no hits needed after that. Would look to offload Digne at some point after that

        Or better yet, upgrade Haller

    Can we have a real discussion about whether we should keep salah or not? Hindsight has made him an offensively poor value pick with recent form. Sterling a much sexier alternative with the next 3 fixtures but is it worth a hit to do the Hokey Cokey or will salah come good after 2 weeks rest? Fixtures are still good as united and spurs are asking for a spank

    1. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      I’m happy keeping to be honest, we all know what he’s capable of!

    2. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      If I'm completely honest, I don't mind if my strategy of keeping Salah is not quite optimal.

      It's still likely to do better than most people who try to be clever.

      That's not to say someone somewhere will find the right combination of non-Salahs, but I don't trust myself to be that person.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Yeah this is a fair point. Could end up being wasted transfers very easily especially with a lot of other issues to be handled, I somehow currently find myself with the worst midfield I have ever seen

    3. Stormbringer22
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      You have opened a can of worms there mate 😀 Before all the Salah wars begin, I would throw my 2 cents in saying that I think we keep Salah. I reckon he can score against the likes of Man U and Spurs. It doesn't have to be green fixtures for him to rack up the points

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Lol too empty around here r n, just stumbled back along myself for a quick hello. I agree with you they are good fixtures now. Salah should be a perfect FPL pick he’s just in poo form, but that’s how he messes with us, pretends he’s lost it then gets a hat trick

    4. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      Ditched him couple weeks back
      Plan is Sterling > Salah or Mane after city v liv

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Mane seems to be the only reliable premium recently, wouldn’t mind a double up when their time comes

    5. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      I don't have stats for this but seems Salah always gets away from international duty. (This time doens't count though.) Southgate on the other hand, loves to run English assets to the ground. So that's one for Salah.

      1. tucaoneo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        Disclaimer: I ditched Salah two weeks ago. Keeping Sterling.

      2. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 days, 12 hours ago

        This is a really important point. Salah has been dying for a rest aswell and now sterling’s going to come back needing one again

    6. The Pope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 days, 12 hours ago

      I'd keep

    7. Amey

      Don't know about Salah or Raz tbh.
      This gw i swapped Salah for Mane. He looked like involved in bloody everything. Also the savings allowed to bring Vardy.
      Re Sterling, don't fancy him either. Will get Kun in a gw or 2 if Raz continues to underperform. He plays too wide to cause any damage & less explosive as © option now imo. KDB is more potent for fpl points atm with playing style of MC

    Fill this in please...

    Pukki, Haller, Zinchenko -> C.Wilson, Boly, _____ (-4)

    Vardy or Abraham? Have Mount and no Leicester attack if that helps

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years

      Vardy . But why not just zinch and pukki to vardy/wilson and boly ?

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Haller doesnt have the best fixtures imo. Everton away is never easy and Sheff United have 2nd best away defensive record in league. Don't like hits but feel this is worth it

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam

            Dont like Arsenal, and dont trust them

            Would rather double up Mané Salah than get Auba

              cool. preferences/teams aside...I'm playing the numbers and betting against the template(Salah).

              1. Pieterke30

                • 3 Years
                9 days, 11 hours ago

                Obviously not saying Auba is a bad pick, just that he’s not for me

    1. The Pope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I think Mount as he's the better option compared to the other options in their price bracket/position

    If 1, still unsure on if Haller or Pukki comes out/
    If 2, still unsure on Vardy or Abraham (have Mount + no Leicester attack tho)

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated 🙂
