Cantwell and Deeney on the bench as Norwich host Watford

For the second match in a row, Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) finds himself on the Norwich City bench.

The budget midfielder enjoyed a long run of starts for the Canaries in the first 10 Gameweeks of the campaign while Onel Hernandez (£5.3m) was out injured.

With the Cuban fully recovered, he starts against Watford, making his second start of the 2019/20.

It makes for an unchanged Norwich team from the one that lost 2-0 at Brighton.

Daniel Farke went with a 4-2-3-1 on that occasion but it appears as if he has deployed his troops in a 4-1-4-1 tonight.

Tom Trybull (£4.5m) looks to be operating in the holding role with Marco Stiepermann (£5.3m) and Kenny McLean (£4.9m) in the middle of the midfield four.

As ever, Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) starts up-front after another week of mass sales among Fantasy managers.

Meanwhile, Watford’s matchday squad has Troy Deeney (£6.2m) in it for the first time since Gameweek 2.

The centre-forward has been recovering with a long-term injury and is fit enough only for the bench.

Quique Sanchez Flores has stuck with his favoured three-man defence, which has produced better performances in recent weeks.

Craig Cathcart (£4.4m), Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) and Craig Dawson (£4.8m) make up the trio in Gameweek 12, with Jose Holebas (£4.7m) and Daryl Janmaat (£4.3m) on the flanks of midfield.

There does appear to be a slight tweak to the usual 3-5-2 deployed under Flores of late, with Will Hughes (£5.5m) pushing out of the midfield to sit as a number 10 behind Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m) and Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m).

Norwich City XI (4-1-4-1): Krul; Lewis, Godfrey, Tettey, Aarons; Trybull; Hernandez, Stiepermann, McLean, Buendía; Pukki.

Watford XI (3-4-1-2): Foster; Cathcart, Kabasele, Dawson; Holebas, Doucouré, Capoue, Janmaat; Hughes; Pereyra, Deulofeu.

    I’d be having nightmares every night if I still owned Pukki

    Surprised Arsenal fans are not asking for Benitez to replace Emery. He is their answer.

      The ultimate care taker.

        a very good caretaker who would get Arsenal back into the CL places with the current squad.

      Sam Allardyce - get the defence sorted out and then sack him.

      Insane, you're clean off it fella.

      It's hardly a mega haul but plenty will do worse with greater hopes, me included probably.

    GW's just started and I already have points on my bench. Oh well. As I said, it was inevitable

    Imagine being number 1 in the world and taking a -12 hit.

    1. Blunder fc

      Baller

    2. Devo-McDuff

      27 days, 15 hours ago

      Phew, that's 12 points less I have to claw back.

  8. Regin

    I guess Norwich role this season was to help Liverpool win the title. Those 3 points dropped by city against this rubbish team could be the difference between liv and city at the end.

    1. Longlatini

      Hope so

  9. GARY AND JAMIE

    Will Cantwell lose that one point for being truly shocking?

    1. JammySprat
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 17 hours ago

      Are Cantwell and Pukki still season keepers?

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 17 hours ago

      Wasn't the entire team shocking? Why only cantwell?

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 17 hours ago

        Because was more shocking in fewer minutes

          Well... Was Buendia any better?

          1. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            27 days, 17 hours ago

            Yes he was

      2. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 17 hours ago

    3. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 15 hours ago

    A. Jimenez

    1. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      27 days, 17 hours ago

      Pukki should have gone about 6gw’s ago l 😉

      1. Regin
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 17 hours ago

        I had other priority transfers. Last week i benched him.

    2. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 17 hours ago

      Rage is the only legitimate response

    3. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 17 hours ago

      A. And ofc you should wait. But I wouldn't because I'm a sucker for price changes.

  11. Firminoooo

    Planed to use WC in IB. But have second thoughts, dont think my team needs it. 0.8 itb. Maybe 3 or 4 changes.

    Pope Heaton
    TAA Robertson Soy Lundstram Rico
    Mane KdB Mount Maddison Cantwell
    Vardy Jimenez Abraham

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      27 days, 17 hours ago

      ur teams perfect, just sort out the shambles that is in the goal. Presuming you plan to do that after Man U (Henderson).

      Did the keeper rotation pay off? rarely does

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 17 hours ago

        Not much. Not worth 0.5m. Keepers out is 2 changes.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          27 days, 16 hours ago

          It is, just save two FT's. Im not saying do it this week but do it when FTs saved. Heaton has been terrible and Pope only has like 5 points more so he must have been doing pretty bad as well.

          I have Heaton, normally I would set and forget but wtf..

    2. Sun Jihai

      Team is already fantastic. Just need Cantwell and GK sorting out.

      No sterling scares me

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 16 hours ago

        Good

    This week I transferred out Deulofeu and Wilson for Ayew and Vardy.
    I knew Deulofeu will get something out of this game but I had no choice but to bring Vardy in. I hope captain choice on him works out now
