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.

    Please help, I don't want Kane or Pukki anymore! but Kane has Watford and can't replace Pukki without taking a premium player out for a hit:

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA / Ota / Tomori / Lundstram (Montoya)
    Sterling / Mane / Mount (Dendon/Cantwell)
    Kane / Pukki / Tammy

    Thanks

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Save. Good team this GW.

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      If you don't want Kane anymore then not sure what the problem is?

      1. Ragnar Lothbrok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 11 hours ago

        because he's playing Watford

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          10 days, 11 hours ago

          I'd keep him for Watford, and wouldn't sell the other premiums.
          But either you don't want him anymore, or you do - for Watford.

    3. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Easy hold for this week mate

    4. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 9 hours ago

      Similar set up to me. I did Pukki to Wilson(c).

      Pope
      TAA VVD Otamendi Soyunca
      Mane KDB Mount
      Aguero Wilson Abraham
      Button Lundstram Geundouzi Dendonker

  3. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 3 Years

    Patricio worth it if you have the extra cash?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Prefer Boly for goal threat

    2. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I'm going for him. Already top of the pile and they only just found their defensive shape back. Boly is a bps magnet but when Saïs is back in the XI after injury he is better value anyway

  4. Mayor of Flair
    • 5 Years
    10 days, 11 hours ago

    How's my wc looking please?

    Pope
    Peirera TAA Tomori
    KDB Mane McGinn Mount
    Auba Vardy Tammy

    McGovern Lund Lowton Dendonk

    Thanks!

    1. jmcclory123
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      McGinn’a fixtures maybe not looking the best. He’s one where if I had him I’d keep him but if I’m WC maybe not. But he is a value midfield enabler so may be worth it.

      1. Mayor of Flair
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 11 hours ago

        Cheers, thought as much. Anyone you fancy in that bracket?

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      ok. McGinn has BHA mci LIV if that affects your squad choices

      1. Mayor of Flair
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 11 hours ago

        Ya possibly. Anyone better than him for that price?

    3. Penguin
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Pretty bad team that, have a rethink

  5. jmcclory123
    • 6 Years
    10 days, 11 hours ago

    How’s this for a WC?

    Pope | Button

    TAA | Rico | Soy | Dunk | Lund

    Mane | Mount | Maddison | KDB | Dendonker

    Aguero | Wilson | Abraham

    Some self critique - weak at the back, but I feel like there’s more points in attack than defence.

    No Auba, can only really have either aguero or Auba and I think Aguero’s point ceiling is higher.

    Thoughts?

    1. Mayor of Flair
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      I'd prefer Auba for the security of starts.
      Really good team though.

    2. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Pretty much Terence Trent T'emplate - looks fine.

    3. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Defence is not weak imo, premium ones do not deliver enough to justify price tag. I would prefer KDB + Vardy to Aguero + Maddison if KDB is confirmed fit.

      1. Runaway
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 11 hours ago

        oops sorry he is there already, then that looks great but still Auba over Aguero for the security.

    4. payetisgod
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      got any cash to squeeze Boly in for Dunk? Personal preference but like the look of him and its back to back clean sheets for wolves so far. Might be a tidy differential!

    5. Penguin
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Soy dunk Rico Maddison are bad so I’d say this team is bad, bad, bad, bad.

  6. Internal Error

    Bernardo Silva has been granted an extension until October 21st to respond to the FA misconduct charge over his Twitter post directed towards Benjamin Mendy.

      Ridiculous - and terrible for fpl reasons (holding Mahrez)

        • 6 Years

        I'm waiting to buy Mahrez

    4. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      That would make Sterling minutes unsafe after International Break

    5. The Overthinker - I blame R…

      Money money

    6. Penguin
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      He’s rubbish

  7. Ian Davis
    • 9 Years
    10 days, 11 hours ago

    Aubameyang or Aguero?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      I've gone Auba - security of starts, long run of good fixtures, 1m (or so) cheaper. Both are good options though.

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      Auba if you have KDB and/or Sterling

    3. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I’ve structured both in for a while

    4. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Aguero should outscore over the next 3 so question is can you make up the difference with the extra 1m cash?

    5. TAT
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Auba has little to no service, that's what worries me about him.

  8. gooner_112233445566

    Hows my wc looking? any other suggestions?

    Pope button
    taa, ota, soy, rico, lund
    sterling, kdb, maddison, mount, elneny (wont ever have to play)

    1. gooner_112233445566
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 days, 11 hours ago

      is it worth me spending the money i am on ota, or save them funds? (when i have 4 other defenders who play)

    2. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I think you have found the template.

      1. Ian Davis
        • 9 Years

          planning on getting mane in in around 3 gameweeks for either sterling or auba

      Not sure how Soy, Rico and Lund rotate. But I'm sure you have analyzed that 🙂

      If so - good team.

    What do we think of my WC team?

    Ryan Button
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Willems Rico
    Sterling Mané KDB Mount Traoré
    Vardy Abraham Connolly

    1. Super Saints
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Traore to Dendonker, use cash to upgrade elsewhere

      1. Weerman
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Traoré is a starter for me, I'd rather have him than Donker. Also with the .6 I save, can't really upgrade anyone interesting, Boly in for Willems maybe, but that's about it.

    2. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I assume you will rotate Connolly and Traore. Risky but it could pay off

      1. Weerman
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Yeah, would be playing 352 or 343, indeed rotating Traoré with Connolly

    3. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Two questions:

      1. Would have this been your wildcard 7 days ago?
      2. Would you select same wildcard in 14 days?

      If no to both then bin it

      If no to one and yes to the other then ok fair enough : go for it but I wouldn’t.

      1. Weerman
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        It's build around the must haves imo for the coming weeks: KDB, Sterling, Mané, Vardy & TAA. Due to low team value (100.4) this is the best team I can come up with. Traoré & Connolly could be insane value for their prices

    4. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Nice to see you're still onto this. Loving it, good balance between template and some punts (traoré, willems). I really believe in Willems i posted him as the next bandwagon already 2 weeks ago, he was such a skilled player@PSV. Made the Dutch team at 17. Only his mentality (got pretty chunky after injury) was questioned back then, but this wingback role is made for him. He was a winger turned into a back anyway. Hopefully newcastle can keep their cs going and then our ranks will rocket.

      1. Weerman
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Hi man, thanks for the reply, appreciated!
        It's my first year playing FPL, so making some rookie mistakes (not chasing team value) but I think it's going good. 900k rank and only using my WC now, still have all the chips left and it's exciting to fresh the team up a bit.
        Willems looked really good indeed, hope he can bring the points indeed =)

    Top FPL Tips for premature Puntulation

    1) Invest your money on midfielders and strikers. Expensive goalkeepers and defenders are a waste.
    2) Get off to a strong start and use your bonuses early - it means you won't lose interest and gets points on the board.
    3) Keep an eye on big teams with good players underperforming. "I'm looking at Spurs now, they can't get any worse and have Watford coming up."
    4) Steer away from Manchester City whenever you dare. "You never know who the manager is going to pick".
    5) Close your eyes and GO Go GO

    1. Nigel Knows

      Having finished top 802 - I would happily take rank 1 at anytime then finish 10k. Rather than be 300k then finish top 5k

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent

        You are talking in a dimension beyond my comprehension.

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Finishing 5k or 10k is the same to me.

          I’d love to be rank 1 even it were only for gameweek 8

          Tanner will finish 10k and you will finish at 5k but I’d take 10k finish having been rank 1 at some point.

            I would even love a 10k finish every year.

          2. Jarvish Scott Talent
            • 4 Years
            10 days, 10 hours ago

            For sure from an OR perspective - 5,000 people finish in the top 5k, but only a handful will be OR 1 at some point. I'd rather win my cash MLs though.

      Best tip ever

      Make a team. Forget about it.

      See how you end up in top 10k

        10 days, 10 hours ago

        To this day, my best ever finish in FPL was when I lost interest for a bit, didn't log on for a month or two, had my captaincy armband on Suarez and didn't do a single transfer in that time 😀 😀

      Himinez

          To be fair, I can never remember how to spell it, so I call him Jimmy. I will make an effort to learn the proper spelling now though 🙂

            Haha fair enough. It was more of a curiosity tbh, I'm not a native English speaker and don't understand why you guys tend to go with the i instead of e. International break is killing me lol.

    Which of these moves look better?
    1. Salah + Pukki -> Maddison + Aubameyang (1.4m).
    2. VVD + Smith -> Pereira + Soyuncu/ Tomori (0.2m/0.1m).
    3. Other.

    Pope.
    VVD, Otamendi, Robbo.
    Cantwell, Mount, KDB, Sterling, Salah.
    Abraham, Pukki.
    Button, Lundstram, A Smith, Wickham.
    2ft- 0.1m ITB. Still have WC.

      Wilson

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Callum

    damn, was hoping for Bilva ban news to make this transfer easier … thinking of going full Pep-roulette and having Mahrez/Bilva, KDB and Dilva - Salah, Cantwell, Haller, Pukki -> Mahrez, CHO, Vardy, Wilson (-8) benching headache front-8 of:

    Son KDB Mahrez Dilva CHO
    Vardy Wilson Tammy

    probably just bench Dilva when it 'looks like' he will be rested, hope for autosubs to kick in the other times … would Bilva or Mahrez be better?

  17. Nigel Knows

    Kevin Oghenetega Tamaraebi Bakumo-Abraham —> Raúl Alonso Jiménez Rodríguez

    Early days but who to captain?? Have plenty of good options with good fixtures......
    A- Mané
    B- Sterling
    C- Cilson
    D- Abraham
    E- Vardy
    Cheers everyone!!

    1. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I'd wait on International minutes. That said all those are capable of having a good gwk. I wouldn't cap Sterling if he starts the last England game as Bilva may get his last start before a possible ban.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Yeah your dead right there mate, I think out of those options I wouldn’t captain Sterling and Mané so it’s out of the 3 strikers probably.

        1. charlie1X
          • 6 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          C or D more predictable returns than E

    Afternoon,

    Used my FTs already.

    News is that Heaton misses Brighton game. Is it worth using WC due to this injury alone?

    thanks

    1. Tierney Henry
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Come to the dark side and burn your WC

    2. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      I thought it was the opposite mate that Villa have said he’s expected to be fit for Brighton match

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Oh ok. I’ll look into this a bit more. Thanks

    3. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Even now I'd consider a WC worth -16 and take hits spread over 2 or 3 weeks with anything less

  21. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    10 days, 10 hours ago

    Haven't watched arsenal properly this season, but love him as a player. Is he lucky to get what he has so far, or is there plenty of hope going forward that he'll get the returns worthy of his price?

    1. Tierney Henry
      • 7 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Who, Auba?

    2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Haha - Auba yes!

    3. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      He's probably the best forward in the Premiership at the moment. That said Arsenal supply line is very average.

  22. payetisgod
    • 3 Years
    10 days, 10 hours ago

    Is not owning Tammy at this stage a rank killer?

    1. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Yes

      1. payetisgod
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Swap out for Pukki for a free?

        Or take a minus 8 taking out Salah, OTA, 4.4 for KDB, Tammy, Boly? Currently own Sterling and Aguero atm!

        Ideal world would be Sterling 4.4 to KDB and Tammy but .1 out!

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Only if he scores well.

  23. Tierney Henry

    Would you bring TAA in on WC ahead of their fixtures?

    1. charlie1X

      10 days, 10 hours ago

      No

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes

    3. Nigel Knows

      I’d prob throw my hat into the Robertson camp

  24. bigdip
    • 7 Years
    10 days, 10 hours ago

    GTG ? No FT, 0.6 ITB

    Ryan (Button)
    Otamendi, TAA, Rico Digne (Lundstram)
    Mount Salah, Sterling Maddison (Dendocker)
    Abraham (c) Pukki (Haller)

    1. charlie1X
      • 6 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Pukki Haller Digne combination looks wrong to me. I'd upgrade attack

      1. bigdip
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Pukki Jimenez or King?

        1. charlie1X
          • 6 Years
          10 days, 10 hours ago

          Digne + Pukki + Haller -> Abraham + Wilson + cheapy (-4) will almost certainly pay off over the next few gwks

    Prior to last Saturday, Heung-Min Son had 2 Goals and 3 assists in 4 matches (78,90,90,63mins) scoring 29 pts.

    It’s Watford next ... who are equally underachieving from expectation in some people’s opinion (not everyone).

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      The worry is he might be rotated but if you own him it's a definite hold.

  26. Nigel Knows
    • 1 Year
    10 days, 10 hours ago

    Last Saturday was first away match where Spurs were bookies favourites. Man City and Arsenal draws was ok. Leicester defeat disappointing after leading but Leicester are pretty good.

    9 pts from 12 at home and they bombarded Newcastle but Toon defended well. Looking for evidence that Watford can defend well.

    Spurs must turn corner eventually if the house ever gets in order.

      Pope

    Hi....can only fit one of these into my wildcard. Already got Kdb...who wins from:

    A....salah

    B ...mane

    C....sterling

    Thanns

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      Salah imo

    2. Benjustjamin
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 10 hours ago

      A or B with KDB already. I'm on Salah and hoping he turns his form around after IB but its personal prefernce, Mane is a beast

      1. Flynny
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 10 hours ago

        Yeah impossible to pick v salah or mane

        As I have the cash I am tempted to go for the more expensive salah ...

    3. charlie1X
