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.

          No, not very. He’s 43 years old and lives in my basement. He’s on here a lot to avoid dealing with the real world. I’m just here looking for him to let him know that dinner is ready.

            He's quick with the goal shouts though, that must give you some pride.

              He practices with his keyboard and mouse every day to be the first to OMG. I guess it’s better to be good at something than nothing.

    4. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      4m on someone who wont play, past perhaps Sunday, instead of 5.3m makes sense.

    5. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      He should start and has a decent chance of a cs.

      Nice pick imo and i can see him becoming a bandwagon if he nails down a place.

    The hope now is that the 1.1% of all players who sold Sterling are ahead of me, and that he unleashes hellfire this Sunday...

    Christ their defending is dismal.

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Not one defender stepped. Crazy.

  24. Ser Davos
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Couple of random points:

    Remember when we all scoffed at Pereira's price of 6m in pre season? FPL were on point tbf. He's second highest scorer despite a 6 point total in the 9-0.

    The Shane-Ferguson-esque-anomaly of John Lundstram as a nailed on attacking 4m defender is almost a reflection of the astonishing transformation of John Lundstram himself from 5 starts in the Championship last season and pretty much the only Sheff Utd player that received any negative assessment last year to the first name on the teamsheet. Aside from himself and the ever changing front two, the rest of the side is what got them promoted over 46 games.

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 22 days ago

      both overperforming

      1. Ser Davos
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Perhaps, but I think they'll still tick over steadily with clean sheets for the forseeable and beyond

  25. Soto Ayam
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Is mount to pulisic a sideways, or uneccessary, move?
      Especially considering I'd only make .2 profit selling him?

      1. Jindaljain
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Deadline gone now concentrate on scores bro

        Mount does seem to be playing in more of a midfield three than the front three. Don't hate it if you have nothing else to do.
