How FPL assets fared in Thursday’s international fixtures

We begin our round-up of the Premier League players involved in international action with a look at Wednesday and Thursday’s fixtures.

Subscribers can view data on some of the matches listed below in our Members’ Area, with details available here.

Brazil 1-1 Senegal

  • Ederson (£6.1m) – 90 minutes
  • Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) – 59 minutes
  • Richarlison (£7.9m) – 18 minutes
  • Fabinho (£5.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Sadio Mane (£11.7m) – 90 minutes
  • Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m) – 66 minutes

Roberto Firmino (£9.6m) and Sadio Mane (£11.7m) came up against one another as Brazil and Senegal played out a 1-1 draw in Singapore.

Both players were involved in the only two goals of the game, too.

Firmino, playing as the lone striker in Brazil’s 4-2-3-1, latched onto a Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) pass early in the game to superbly chip Alfred Gomis and give Selecao the lead, although that was to be the Liverpool striker’s only attempt on goal of the match as he roamed deep and wide from his central role.

Firmino teed up Neymar for a big chance just before the break and was withdrawn on the hour-mark, giving him a welcome breather after his exertions with Liverpool in recent weeks.

Mane wasn’t to be handed a rest, however, lasting the full 90 minutes – although unlike Brazil, who are again in action on Sunday in Singapore, this was Senegal’s only fixture of the international break.

The Liverpool winger was lively in his usual role on the left flank, firing a fiercely struck shot at Ederson (£6.1m) on 25 minutes and going close to bagging the winner when striking the Manchester City goalkeeper’s upright late in the game.

Senegal’s equaliser came from the spot just before half-time and, unsurprisingly, it was Mane who was the source of it: the premium FPL midfielder being bundled to the floor after an excellent mazy run into the Brazil box.

Jesus reprised his now customary right-wing role for Brazil and hugged the touchline for much of the game, although cut inside to provide Firmino’s goal and had an excellent chance to restore Brazil’s lead from inside the Senegal box in the second half.

Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m) lasted the full game bar the final seconds of stoppage time, while Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m) was substituted after 66 minutes.

Fabinho (£5.5m) failed to make it onto the field, however.

South Korea 8-0 Sri Lanka

  • Son Heung-min (£9.8m) – 62 minutes

Son Heung-min (£9.8m) didn’t have a particularly wearying evening as South Korea registered the most comfortable of World Cup 2022 qualifying victories over Sri Lanka.

South Korea could even afford to take their talisman off just after the hour-mark, with the hosts 6-0 up in Hwaseong.

The Spurs midfielder found the back of the net on two occasions, first firing in from the edge of the box and then converting a penalty on the stroke of half-time.

Son also provided a superb assist for his nation’s second goal.

South Korea are in action again on Tuesday morning (UK time), taking on North Korea in another World Cup qualifier.

Given the flight time, Son will likely be one of the last Premier League players to return to their clubs, although he played 90 minutes in Gameweek 5 after a similar schedule in the September international break.

Gabon 1-0 Burkina Faso

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) – 90 minutes

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang‘s (£11.1m) blank-less streak may have come to an end in Gameweek 8 but the Arsenal striker was back among the goals for his national team on Thursday.

The premium FPL forward despatched a late penalty to give his country a 1-0 win in France.

Aubameyang and Gabon still have to face Morocco in North Africa on Tuesday evening but any owners worried about a late return needn’t be concerned: Arsenal’s international contingent have an extra two days to recover from their travels, with the Gunners taking on Sheffield United on the Monday evening of Gameweek 9.

Algeria 1-1 DR Congo

  • Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) – 23 minutes
  • Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) – 90 minutes

The 9.6% of FPL managers who own Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) would have been pleased to see the Manchester City winger only making a cameo substitute’s appearance as Algeria drew 1-1 with DR Congo.

Mahrez came off the bench in the 67th minute and had little involvement, firing twice into the wall from a free-kick late on.

Having started three City games in a row before the international break, Mahrez’s owners would have been relieved to see him being handed a breather in North Africa – although the Algerian winger still has to negotiate a meeting with Colombia next Tuesday.

The good news is that the meeting with the South American nation takes place in Lille, so the former Leicester man doesn’t have far to travel to return to Manchester.

West Ham’s Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) played the full 90 minutes for DR Congo in Thursday’s friendly, meanwhile.

Germany 2-2 Argentina

  • Bernd Leno (£5.0m) – 0 minutes
  • Ilkay Gundogan (£5.2m) – 0 minutes
  • Juan Foyth (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Nicolas Otamendi (£5.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Roberto Pereyra (£5.7m) – 76 minutes
  • Marcos Rojo (£4.8m) – 45 minutes
  • Erik Lamela (£6.1m) – 0 minutes
  • Emi Martinez (£4.4m) – 0 minutes

The week of international fixtures kicked off on Wednesday, with Germany and Argentina playing out a 2-2 draw in Dortmund.

With Bernd Leno (£5.0m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.2m) not making it off the bench (Gundogan having been a doubt with a muscular problem), Fantasy interested was limited to Argentina’s Premier League-based players.

Juan Foyth (£4.9m) and Nicolas Otamendi (£5.6m) both lasted the full game, with the Spurs defender getting another 90 minutes under his belt after his recent return from injury.

Foyth was deployed at right-back, too, a position he may well be featuring in more frequently at Spurs given the problems Mauricio Pochettino currently has in that department.

Otamendi underscored his aerial prowess with another headed attempt from a corner late in the game.

Marcos Rojo (£4.8m) joined those two defenders at the back in the first half, before being hooked at half-time.

While Roberto Pereyra (£5.7m) started on the right flank and played the first 76 minutes, Erik Lamela‘s (£6.1m) remaining FPL owners will have been pleased to see him remain an unused substitute on the visitors’ bench.

Emi Martinez (£4.4m) was also not called upon by Argentina.

Argentina next take on Ecuador in Spain on Sunday, with Germany in Euro 2020 qualification action in Estonia on the same day.

The Netherlands 3-1 Northern Ireland

  • Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Nathan Ake (£4.9m) – 0 minutes
  • Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) – 0 minutes
  • Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Craig Cathcart (£4.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Jonny Evans (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Michael McGovern (£4.0m) – 90 minutes

Northern Ireland came very close to shocking the Netherlands in Rotterdam, having taken the lead with just 15 minutes of normal time to go in their Euro 2020 qualifying match on Thursday.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell (£4.5m), Craig Cathcart (£4.4m) and Jonny Evans (£5.0m) were part of a heroic rearguard effort for the visitors, who had only two attempts on goal all match and enjoyed just 23% of possession.

With Nathan Ake (£4.9m) and Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) not making it off the bench, Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) and Georginio Wijnaldum (£5.4m) were the only Premier League representatives on show for the hosts.

The Liverpool duo both lasted the full 90 minutes, with van Dijk having little defending to do and seeing his clean sheet ruined when two of his defensive colleagues – one of whom was Matthijs de Ligt – made a complete hash of a Shane Ferguson cross in the build-up to Josh Magennis’s opener.

Wijnaldum is often afforded more license to get forward with the national team than he is with Liverpool and the Dutch midfielder had five attempts on goal of his own, with one of his efforts being hooked away from near the goalline by Evans.

As is the case with all of the national teams involved in Euro 2020 qualifying on Thursday night, the Netherlands and Northern Ireland are next in action on Sunday – giving our various Fantasy assets the best part of a week to recover for Gameweek 9.

Belgium 9-0 San Marino

  • Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Jan Vertonghen (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Christian Benteke (£5.7m) – 14 minutes
  • Michy Batshuayi (£6.6m) – 0 minutes
  • Divock Origi (£5.3m) – 0 minutes
  • Dennis Praet (£5.3m) – 0 minutes
  • Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) – 0 minutes

Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) missed Belgium’s demolition of San Marino with a stomach illness and will reportedly not be part of the national team’s travelling squad for their second European Championship qualifier against Kazakhstan on Sunday.

Youri Tielemans (£6.4m), who lasted the full game against San Marino and scored his side’s sixth goal, will also be excused from the Red Devils’ forthcoming match this weekend as he is about to become a father.

After their struggles with Spurs against Bayern Munich and Brighton, centre-halves Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m) and Jan Vertonghen (£5.3m) enjoyed a much easier evening as Belgium coasted to victory without allowing their opponents a single shot.

Alderweireld was indeed busier at the other end of the pitch, scoring Belgium’s fifth goal when his shot from distance took a wicked deflection off a visiting defender.

Tielemans had earlier teed up Romelu Lukaku for Belgium’s first goal and met an Eden Hazard pass to put the hosts 6-0 up at half-time.

Even Christian Benteke (£5.7m) got in on the act, coming off the bench to curl in a seventh goal for Roberto Martinez’s side.

In picking up three points against the Group I minnows, Belgium became the first team to qualify for next summer’s tournament.

Divock Origi (£5.3m) and Michy Batshuayi (£6.6m) were both unused substitutes, while Dennis Praet (£5.3m) still awaits his first Belgium start and wasn’t part of the matchday squad for this fixture.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.0m) was, of course, not called up by his country for this Euro 2020 double-header after suffering a groin injury.

Russia 4-0 Scotland

  • Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) – 90 minutes
  • John McGinn (£5.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Robert Snodgrass (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • John Fleck (£4.8m) – 82 minutes
  • Ryan Fraser (£7.1m) – 68 minutes
  • Stuart Armstrong (£5.3m) – 8 minutes

Scotland’s dismal Euro 2020 qualification campaign reached another low as they were demolished 4-0 by Russia.

Andrew Robertson‘s (£6.9m) performances for his country have often been below the levels of his displays for Liverpool but there has to be some mitigation for the premium FPL defender: Robertson is obviously part of a sub-standard team on the international stage and it is the understatement of the year to say that Charlie Mulgrew is no Virgil van Dijk.

Robertson lasted the full game and was part of a Scotland defence that held out for the first 56 minutes in Moscow, making an important early block from Aleksey Ionov as the visitors’ high press otherwise kept Russia at bay.

Just as their defence wilted in the second half, Scotland’s attacking assets had little joy.

Ryan Fraser (£7.1m) started the game on the right of midfield and was twice frustratingly not found by Robert Snodgrass (£5.3m) when in good positions, with the Bournemouth winger later withdrawn midway through the second half.

John McGinn (£5.8m) is an in-demand budget midfielder in FPL at present and he was given a chance to showcase his attacking attributes in Moscow, lining up as a number ten behind Oliver Burke.

The hard-working McGinn recovered from a first-half injury to last the full game but a wild attempt that sailed high and wide on 79 minutes was as close as he came to getting on the scoresheet and he failed to touch the ball once in the hosts’ box.

Sheffield United John Fleck (£4.8m) made his international debut in central midfield, being replaced in the final eight minutes by Stuart Armstrong (£5.3m).

Slovakia 1-1 Wales

  • Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) – 90 minutes
  • Wayne Hennessey (£4.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Ben Davies (£5.4m) – 90 minutes
  • Daniel James (£6.1m) – 90 minutes
  • Harry Wilson (£6.1m) – 24 minutes
  • Neil Taylor (£4.5m) – 0 minutes
  • Danny Ward (£4.4m) – 0 minutes

Without an FPL return in four Gameweeks, Daniel James (£6.1m) provided the assist for Wales’ only goal in their 1-1 draw with Slovakia.

Playing on the left of a front three, James crossed for Kieffer Moore to head Ryan Giggs’ side in front on 25 minutes.

The Manchester United winger could have had a further assist later on, when Joe Rodon had a header deflected over from James’ free-kick delivery.

James had four attempts on goal of his own, including a stoppage-time effort that he screwed wide after a swift counter-attack.

Ben Davies (£5.4m) played the full 90 minutes at left-back, with Wayne Hennessey (£4.4m) having little chance with the hosts’ equaliser and later going on to make a smart stop from Albert Rusnák.

Newcastle’s Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) was between the posts for Slovakia, meanwhile.

Neil Taylor (£4.5m) and Danny Ward (£4.4m) failed to make it off the bench but Harry Wilson (£6.1m) was thrown on as a 66th-minute substitute despite being a minor injury doubt for the game.

Croatia 3-0 Hungary

  • Dejan Lovren (£5.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Mateo Kovacic (£5.4m) – 23 minutes
  • Lovre Kalinic (£4.4m) – 0 minutes

There wasn’t a great deal of Fantasy interest in Split, with three FPL assets currently owned by 1.0% of managers or fewer in action – or not, in unused substitute Lovre Kalinic‘s (£4.4m) case.

After getting his first Premier League start of the season in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Leicester City, Dejan Lovren (£5.3m) completed 90 minutes for his national team and had a fairly comfortable night as Croatia bossed possession and chances in their 3-0 win over ten-man Hungary.

Mateo Kovacic (£5.4m) emerged from the bench midway through the second half and created a big chance for Ante Rebic that the latter flashed just wide of the far post.

Latvia 0-3 Poland

  • Jan Bednarek (£4.5m) – 90 minutes

A Poland side missing the injured Lukasz Fabianski (£5.1m), who is set to remain out until the next calendar year, breezed past Latvia to consolidate their position at the top of Euro 2020 qualification Group G.

Jan Bednarek (£4.5m) played the full 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet as the hosts failed to register a single shot on target.

Serbia 1-0 Paraguay

  • Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m) – 45 minutes
  • Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) – 53 minutes
  • Fabian Balbuena (£4.3m) – 0 minutes

Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) saw red for Paraguay for the second time this year, being dismissed for two bookable offences in his country’s 1-0 friendly loss to Serbia.

Almiron, cautioned for simulation in Gameweek 8, reportedly received his second booking for diving in Paraguay’s defeat on Thursday.

The South American nation are again in action in Europe on Sunday.

Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m), now free of suspension in the Premier League, played the first 45 minutes for Serbia but Fabian Balbuena (£4.3m) didn’t make it off the bench for the visitors.

Australia 5-0 Nepal

  • Mathew Ryan (£4.6m) – 90 minutes
  • Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) – 62 minutes

Brighton duo Mathew Ryan (£4.6m) and Aaron Mooy (£4.8m) were part of an Australia side that comfortably saw off Nepal on Thursday.

Ryan had a comfortable evening between the posts against the Asian minnows, who failed to register a shot on target.

Mooy was withdrawn just after the hour-mark, having been involved in the build-up to his side’s first goal.

Graham Potter will get his two Australian players back relatively late as the Socceroos take on Chinese Taipei on Tuesday.

Republic of Ireland under-21s 0-0 Italy under-21s

  • Caoimhin Kelleher (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Adam Idah (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Troy Parrott (£4.5m) – 64 minutes
  • Patrick Cutrone (£5.7m) – 45 minutes
  • Michael Obafemi (£4.9m) – 22 minutes
  • Moise Kean (£6.6m) – 19 minutes

Moise Kean (£6.6m) was handed a straight red card after clashing with Spurs’ Troy Parrott (£4.5m) in a Euro 2021 qualifier between Ireland and Italy’s under-21 sides.

The Everton striker had been thrown on at half-time alongside Wolves’ Patrick Cutrone (£5.7m) but was dismissed after 64 minutes after a fairly innocuous shove on Parrott, with the Spurs striker also receiving a second yellow card for his part in that incident and given his marching orders.

Caoimhin Kelleher (£4.5m) and Adam Idah (£4.5m) lasted the full game as Michael Obafemi (£4.9m) came off the bench for the hosts.

Round-up

Maya Yoshida (£4.4m) scored for Japan and played the full 90 minutes as his country defeated Mongolia 6-0 in a World Cup qualifier.

Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m), who has started all eight Premier League matches for Arsenal this season, played the first 77 minutes of France under-21s’ Euro 2021 qualifier against Azerbaijan.

The budget FPL midfielder provided the assist for Odsonne Édouard’s second goal.

Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) played around 65 minutes and scored for Brazil under-23s in a 4-1 win over their Venezuelan counterparts.

Angel Gomes (£4.8m) scored a brace as England under-20s drew 2-2 Italy. Lewis Gibson (£4.4m) missed out due to illness.

          I've been ridiculously busy with personal issues, logged back on today after over a week and saw quite a few players with yellow flags...what's the verdict? How should I spend my 1 FT? Dropped from 30k -> 250k OR in a few weeks.

          Ederson - Button
          VVD - Zinch - Tomori - Lund - Kelly
          Salah - KDB - Son - Yarmo - Cantwell
          Pukki - Haller - Tammy

            Kelly might be back but it’s not like this dude is some England international or has ever played in the EPL before. This is young player from the Championship.

            Sure, he might sit Rico just like Foden might sit KDB one day- could happen

              Yeah that was my initial reaction also

              Kelly has about 20 championship games to his name, it’s not as if he’s an established, elite fullback - he has zero premier league experience, albeit seems to have high potential according to some folks

                Not likely to be a first team regular this season. Ricos left foot was called a "wand" by Wilson, and Howe said he is getting better defensively as well. Bargain

          Think I'll give Son and Pukki one last chance each. Son will probably be gone regardless of what does against Watford. Where as Pukki I think could still be worth holding. Anyone else with these 2? What are you doing?

            Both gone this week for me. Would have kept Son but I needed to upgrade Pukki

            Son & Pukki > Vardy & Maddison looking like my next move

            Only question is get it out of the way this week, or give Son Watford & do it next week

            With Spurs form, and an International break, I’m not sure Watford is the same carrot it normally would be for Son

            1. Nabs Kebabs

              Thing is I haven't seen enough from Leicester in attack. They are only ahead of Newcastle in xG. Burnley, Palace and Southampton in the next 3 (of which 2 are away) don't scream goals to me either.

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Wouldn’t deter me in the slightest - partially a function of their opening fixture list (generally considered quite tough)

                With fixtures turning I’d expect them to at least continue scoring FPL points (and premier league points) at around the same rate, if not slightly better, than they have to date - and to date they have been great from a points perspective

                Vardy looks set for a decent run for the next few months, Maddison’s price rises annoying though thought the flags would have kept him at 7.0 but there’s already a clamour growing to get in early

                1. Nabs Kebabs
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 11 days ago

                  Leicester can be quite hard to read though. Last season they seemed to perform better in tougher fixtures.

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    Last season has to be split into pre-Puel and post- post though

                    Vardy post-Puel has been in beast mode (from an FPL points perspective) and Rodgers is still less than a year in thejob yet look at the improvement they’ve already shown

                    1. Nabs Kebabs
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 11 days ago

                      I do agree that Vardy has clearly flourished under Rodgers. But was a lot more impressed towards the end of last season with their attack. The defence has stood out this season. I'm probably going to wait till GW12 when they play Arsenal at home to decide if I want an attacker.

                      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 9 Years
                        1 month, 11 days ago

                        Again possibly driven by that fixture list - he’s had Chelsea, Liverpool, Spurs, Utd (2,2,2,2) in his first 4...

                        Whereas against Wolves, Sheffield, Bournemouth, Newcastle he’s managed ( 2, 8, 16, 12) which is reassuring and I think he’ll continue to turn heads as the weeks wear on...

                        No European distractions, attacking manager, a team challenging for top 4, club talisman, penalties, rapidly improving fixtures starting GW9...

                        Bring it on 🙂

            Son has 4 returns in his last 5, the only game he blanked in during this spell is the last game where every top player apart from Mane blanked.

            He has Watford next who are conceding a lot of goals, Spurs are poor but Son is performing where returns are concerned, recency bias is massive this year, if you're dumping Son after 1 blank in 5, no one is safe.

            1. Nabs Kebabs
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              Did you watch Spurs against Brighton? lol

              1. FPLFreddo

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 11 days ago

                Yes I did and well done for completely ignoring the point.

                FWIW, they had a bad week, looked great for half an hour against Bayern then got blown away, went to Brighton low in confidence, lost their keeper to a bad injury after a few mins and were all over the place, the break came at a good time for them.

                But if you only want to look at the last weeks returns and ignore the previous 4 you have a very strong case to wildcard and lose every player you probably have apart from Mane.

                1. Nabs Kebabs
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Spurs were also trash against Southampton and Leicester. They're players look terrible value. Not sure what you're point is exactly.

                  1. FPLFreddo
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    1 month, 11 days ago

                    My point is the player is scoring points but your justification is a week where Mahrez, Aguero, Salah, Sterling, Vardy, Wilson etc all blanked, will you sell them all? Recency bias is strong here.

                    Son this season

                    GW1 - Did no play
                    GW2 - Did not play
                    GW3 - Blank
                    GW4 - Assist
                    GW5 - 2 goals
                    GW6 - Assist
                    GW7 - Assist
                    GW8 - Everyone blanked

                    Think the point is self explanatory.

                      I am going to captain Wilson despite blanking last week. Your theory about recency bias is out the window. Sorry.

                  The fractured dressing room, and speculation over Poch, combined with upcoming European distractions, son’s international duty etc put huge question marks over Son for me (not just in terms of his minutes starting to be managed, but also the team around him have hit the self destruct button)

                  Combined with leciester’s form put him on thin ice...1 blank in 5 doesn’t really tell the full story either for me

                  Let’s call a spade a spade and say he’s gone 2, 5, 5, 5, 2 from NEW, ars, lei, SOU, bri which as an owner has been hugely frustrating for a 10.0-ish player

                  TLDR: whilst Palace was lovely, his other 5 games have been garbage points output imo

                  Super player mind you, and one who’s Well capable of punishing sellers - hence my open on whether to give him Watford or not

                    That game against Palace was also the only decent performance Spurs have put in all season. They've looked absolutely horrendous.

                      A lot of it was Sakho’s return from injury without being fully fit and Cahill

                      I watched the game & they both looked like they were on ice skates for the entire 90 minutes, never seen worse from a centreback pairing

                      It’s no surprise Martin Kelly has carved out a little niche for himself there at centre back

                      Lucky for them they are home to Watford who are worse, everyone was talking about Son for Captain this week before last week, opinions change fast at the moment.

                        Well that's the only reason why I said I'm going to keep him a week in my OP isn't it...

                        I think in fairness opinion is just reflecting son’s disappointing season to date combined with the (extremely?) worrying goings on at spurs, his price tag and the growing list of alternatives

                        It’s dog eat dog in FPL 🙂

                        Son is great though, no arguments there,i got him in before Newcastle as I’m a massive fan of his & wanted a slice of the action.

                        As of now though, a lot has changed, and I’m just not sure he’s set up for success by factors around him (out of his control obviously) in the short/medium term whereas other players look like they are

            Sold Pukki before his price drop. Brought in King. Don't own Son.

              Don't rate King at all tbh.

                Well, we'll see. He's definitely in form, still on pens and is facing Norwich at home. He's also a good alternative to what seems like the most congested template ever. And he frees up funds. And, and and...

                  I prefer Maupay.

                    Definitely a good differential at a very good price and with good fixtures in the next 3.

                  The “Norwich factor” is leaning me towards Wilson (c) this week

            A few weeks away, but I think Son is the stand-out captain choice in gw12.

            1. Nabs Kebabs

              If Spurs pick up some form I may get him back. But for now I can't get rid fast enough. Sheffield are quite solid defensively though so it's not like he's a brilliant pick there anyway. Salah could be a strong option at home to City without Laporte.

              Careful - Other Fixtures could spoil the party:

              3rd Nov - Everton (GW11)
              6th Nov - red star (CL)
              9th Nov - sheff utd (GW12)

              Will Son get 270 minutes in 6 days?? Not a pup’s chance imo

              THis is why the Tammy’s, Pukki’s, Vardy’s, Wilson’s etc of this world are so attractive from an FPL perspective - none of these European rotation worries

          The top 6 is completely open this season.

          Liverpool are miles ahead of the rest atm. City are slightly better when they have the likes of Laporte and KDB fit.

          Chelsea have been so impressive for the squad they have but will be difficult to keep it up.

          Arsenal and Tottenham are both garbage. Same with United.

          Been saying it for weeks that I think Leicester are top 4 material.

          Also think Palace and Burnley will challenge top 6.

            West Ham will challenge top 6 aswell but defence really is a problem for them.

              Zaha will need to start firing to be fair. But they are doing pretty well so far and big teams often seem to struggle against them

            Arsenal are not "garbage". You are garbage.

              No, I'm a realist. I was once deluded like you though. Can't believe I rated Emery when he came in. He's worse than Wenger.

            2. Murder On Zidanesfloor

              3rd place after facing Pool, United and Spurs, with one of our best players (Laca) injured and 3 of our first choice defenders (Tierney, Bellerin and Holding) yet to start a game. All 4 are back in contention to start after the IB. Guendouzi, Martinelli and Saka are massive prospects for the club as well and all showcasing their talent, great position to be in.

              So go eat your kebab and Jog on.

                1 month, 11 days ago

                Lol let's be honest, the only reason we are 3rd is cos of Auba.

                Agree we do have some amazing talents coming through though. Guendouzi will be world class soon. But there's no point having a potentially world class midfielder if you partner him with Granit Xhaka....

                1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  Take TAA, VVD, Robbo and Bobby out of Liverpool and they would need salah and mane to be talismans as well as well. Xhaka has been decent barring that one rash challenge (agreed he isn't world class but he's still learning). But we are far from "garbage", things are only looking upwards for us, unlike Spurs and United.

                  1. Nabs Kebabs

                    Lmao...TAA, VVD and Robbo are all best in the world in their respective positions. Obviously you take them out it's going to have an effect...but they still have world class players like Salah and Mane.

                    The only player we have near that level is Auba. Laca is close but not quite that level.

                    Yes we are looking better than Spurs and United but we are over performing on the table. Will still be surprised if we finish top 4.

                      Chelsea and Leicester are better than us.

                      You should go on Arsenal Fan TV mate you will be a bit hit. This is why we are trolled, because of fans like you. 8 games in, played Pool, United and Spurs (2/3 games away), still in 3rd and calling the team garbage.

                      You say we are winning because of Auba, but where is Auba going? He is still part of the team and last I saw he is getting assists from the fullbacks, Guendo, Ceballos etc.

                        lol we got 2 points out of those 3 games.

                        And against the poor teams, we have not been convincing even once. They were all struggles.

                          Yeah and we still beat them. Those struggles will turn into convincing wins once we have Laca, Holding, Tierney, and Bellerin playing regularly.

                          Do every Arsenal fan a favor and cut the whinging, you and others like you are the reason we get trolled.

                            Nah the problem is the defence has no protection. Because Emery loves playing Xhaka. If he started Torreira instead, then we are top 4 material.

                            1. Murder On Zidanesfloor

                              Nah mate. We are top 4 material either way, watch the games, Xhaka has been playing well, Torreira is good but I prefer Xhaka + Guendo for their control in possession and height/fight.

                              They were very good defensively vs BOU. Encouraging signs.

                          I agree! I guess its an adopted song choice, just like YNWA doesn't actually have any connection to LFC. But damn, strange choice indeed. Ajax's adopted song is Three little birds, I would have taken that.

                            Do your team and the fans a favor and organize a mass protest or rally of some sort to eradicate that song from the stadium forever. There's got to be plenty of support for that, and they just need some leadership. 🙂

                    comparing a guy who's not played a second of premier league footy to Robbo is absolutely laughable. You fans may want Tierney to start but I think it's just as likely he'll be blooded in Europe then given the Luverpool cup game as a test

              1 month, 10 days ago

              But Leicester lost to ManU (and barely created any chances) and could have quite easily lost to Tottenham before Aurier scored a VAR disallowed goal to make it 2-0.

              I agree Leicester are playing well, but I still think top4 is a stretch. Also, can't see Burnley or Palace top6

              Palace and Burnley 😆 They are the ones who won't keep it up, like you said about a Chelsea.

              It will still be 6 between Liverpool, City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Spurs (hate them but Its a slump but they are still a quality side), Leicester and United (Only with a new manager).

                Palace are looking like a good shout at the moment to finish 6th. Stil early doors but the have been solid.

                Spurs may just find some form, they have a very good squad.

                Arsenal always implode but the can challenge for 4th.

                Leicester will be a surprise package.

                Title between LFC and City. Liverpool are looking unstopable at the moment. City have catching up to do. Lead of 8 points this early is quite frightning.

                  Not really a surprise hahah they won the league a few seasons ago and are currently sitting at 4th. Would be crazy if palace finish 6th, can't see it happening, see the fixtures they have had while reaching 6th, and their coming fixtures in the next 7.

                  Agree with the rest, except I think 3rd and 4th can go either way between Arsenal and Chelsea.

                    They face City, Arsenal, Lei, Chelsea and Pool in the next 5. If they remain 6th after that, I will be more convinced that they can sustain it.

              Is a defence of Soy Dunk Kelly Rico and Lundstram too weak?

                    You’ve the same attack as me after my upcoming (Son/Pukki > Maddison/Vardy) move 🙂

                    FWIW, I’ve got maddison instead of Sterling then TAA, Robbo, Ota instead of your Soy, Dunk, Kelly so I would say you’re going very light in defence to afford Sterling...

                    May work out, may not, who knows!

                        Yeah on a WC so still tinkering but yeah seems a weak defence really.

                    Hate international football from a fantasy perspective

                    Utterly unreliable as an indicator/predictor of premier league performance, and does nothing but physically fatigue a player and disrupt the management of premier league teams

                    Would love to see it deleted from domestic calendars

                    The quality has also dropped so far behind club football in recent years it’s ridiculous

                      the world doesn't revolve around the premier league, summer tournaments are great so these are a necessary evil

                        The world doesn’t, but FPL does 🙂

                        Put qualifying into the summers between tournaments - would solve multiple problems (no boring summers every other year without football, less interruptions to the football that really matters)

                        The clubs (who pay these players’ wages and suffer if they are fatigued/injured from international duty) would surely be in favour - they would get huge benefits from not losing highly paid multimillion pound assets for four, five, six 2 week international breaks every season

                  Anyone think Son will be a viable option to KDB? Spurs are in bit of a limbo but can see them improving their situation.

                  Son is such a damn good player.

                    1 month, 10 days ago

                    If KDB is fit, and it was in fact an IB injury, keep! He will outscore Son even if he starts 3 out of 5 games.

                    1. FOO FIGHTER
                        1 month, 10 days ago

                        If Son starts for Spurs after the IB I am swithcing KDB back to Son. No City and a very differential team.

                        Nothing wrong with going totally different.

                          City players = Points though. But yeah, if you play it smart, no reason it can't work for you, just see Ben Crabtree.

                      Nah, KDB is a superior option imo. Own both and will probably captain Son this week.
                      35 points in 6 games where Spurs lost 3 is a very good return from him.

                          1 month, 10 days ago

                          Probably but I am going to be roll the dice and go no City.

                          Either going to work or blow up.

                      Any original thoughts?
                      My team is so template it is scary. Only Firmino who is owned by 12% of the top 1k is close to original. Rose who I want to move does not count. KDB will be coming back next week and maybe a spot for Martial.

                      I need something different!

                        To be different you could go TAA, Robbo, VVD with Allison back

                        Pair with KDB, Sterling, Mahrez

                        Then pad it out with some of Mount, CHO, Tammy, Vardy, Maddison, Wilson etc

                        Different, but still good 🙂

                          Yep. its the combination that makes the diff. I should look at groups rather than individuals.

                        very few will have your combos, thats a differential in itself. There's only so many options so it's easy to think your team is template when in fact a good score will see a nice green which is all you can ask for

                          See above post. You are right. I have recorded the RMT's and have been averaging 11 to 12 same players, which is disheartening.
