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 really wanted to get Deulofeu in today but was forced by a few on here to get Vardy instead.

    Never again!

      Definitely wanted to get him in for next three but already had Tammy and Jimi and didn’t want to risk not getting Vardy in for his run and captainers this weekend. Deu and Son my top tips this week.

    Deulofeu ticking over nicely and quietly with 7 and 5 points in the two games before this and sitting on 1.9% ownership.

    Big schoolboy error, been so busy forgot that there was a game tonight.

    Salah Sterling Kdb Mount
    Jimi Rashford (c) Abraham

    Cantwell Rico Kelly

    Changed cap to Abraham and put Rico ahead of Lund but didn’t save earlier and wanted to transfer out Mount to be safe.

              You have a decent side - I wouldn’t have done it either tbf - just always frustrating when you have such a feeling, dont act on it, and it pans out - nature of the game I guess!

    I slowly start to regret captaining Mane over Abraham... Seriously what I have been thinking hah

    1. Zico Senna

      It's a good captain pick, relax bud

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        That City - Lfc game seems undpredictible, but I have a feeling both teams will play more defensively. If I have to bet I would say something like 1-1 or 1-0. I was thinking that recently City is vulnerable at the back and they can have problems with LFC playing well at home, but not so sure now...

          • 3 Years

          I think City will concede. And I agree it's either a Liverpool win or a draw but.. think it could end 3-2 aswell as 0-0. As you said unpredictable.
