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.

        A better team would have scored 3 goals on that Watford defwnce by now.

        Salah owned by just 16.3% of the Top 10k! Incredible, just like his stats and performances at Anfield: 12, 15, 9, 2, 7 for an average of 9 points per match at home. Going to be an amazing differential

          9 Ppg for 12M is awful

            • 2 Years

            Yes, very awful. I would hate if a player scored (38 x 9) over the course of the season: 342 points 😆

            1. Podge
              • 8 Years
              6 days, 22 hours ago

              It’s less than 30 points per million, lots of players will get over 30 ppm

                Of course they will but you’re forgetting the most powerful metric - captaincy

            Cream will rise and stats still well in the Egyptian’s favour. Penalties alone is worth an extra million imo.

              There is no doubt that he will haul at some point but I don't see him overscoring Mane this year

        Lot of bragging by non Cantwell owners about how he's 'done' and Hernandez is great.

        He's not, he's dog dirt

          An upgrade of Can'twells cat soil.

              • 5 Years
              6 days, 21 hours ago

              He certainly improved after I had a word. He's still an over bulked turgid winger and Cantwell will prevail

                        I was considering it with ederson out but stuck with vardy as I’d actually like to see city win for the title race

                      HoleBAPs half shooting from a corner, love that!

                      This is some of the worst defending I have ever seen

                      Hernandez is a good player! Cantwell will never get back into the team

                      Looking dangerous on the left Norwich....

                        Should be like this imo:

                        Pukki
                        Cantwell Buendia Hernandez

                      Janmaat will be lucky to stay on for the second half at this rate

                        I dont want him on the pitch past 61 minutes

                      Hernandez could become a nice FPL asset for his price

                      Hernandez getting so many opportunities. Cantwell haul coming in the last ten.

                        Watford are allowing him all the space in the world but he keeps messing up

                          Maybe they know he has no end product :p

                      Remember when Capoue scored with every shot

                        And when Pukki did too.

                          could be worse, its not a Man U home game
