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.

      Think Vardy good choice.

      Mystic Meg and Russell Grant?

    2. FPL Pillars

      They’re through to next round then

    3. Trophé Mourinho

    4. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      This game is just chaos

    5. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

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

    6. IRBOX ⚽

      6 months, 22 days ago

      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

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

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

          1. Podge
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

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

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

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

        He is on Manes shadow now

          • 3 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

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

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

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

    7. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

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

      He's not, he's dog dirt

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        An upgrade of Can'twells cat soil.

      2. Utd and Dallas Cowboys
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 22 days ago

        I’m a Cantwell owner am not seeing this...

      3. gaurava1216
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        you watching the same game as us? Hernandez is a spark...

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

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

    8. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Norwich look terrible. Can't keep the ball and disorganised defensively.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Watford look equally bad though.

      Using my wildcard tonight. Which option is better?

      Gazzaniga Button
      Robbo Trent Lundy Rico X
      Mane KdB Tony M X Dendo
      Jimmy Vardy Tammy

      A. Pulisic and 4,1m defender (3rd sub)
      B. Mount and Tomori/Soy..

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        A if Pulisic is nailed.

    11. Utd and Dallas Cowboys
      • 1 Year

      Hernandez is such a huge upgrade on Cantwell in real terms. His pacenis frightening

        1. Utd and Dallas Cowboys
          • 1 Year

          Disagree - Hernandez probably Championship standard. Cantwell League 1

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

        Looking dangerous on the left Norwich....

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

          Should be like this imo:

          Pukki
          Cantwell Buendia Hernandez

      • Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

      • Am sorry to say again it�…

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
