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.

    Buendia ruins pukki assist

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      yeah, Pukki's looking dangerous. Maybe it will actually translate into some points this week.

    This Chilean Hernandez seems decent for Norwich.

    Is their Cuban Hernandez any good?

    Mendy to Robbo done. 0.2 swing tonight

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Robbo red card or injury then?

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years

        Hope not

    2. Rainer

      Better hope Borat doesn’t target him.

      Robbo won't rise according to fplstatistics. But nice move!

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Could easily rise - on 91 with four and a half hours until price changes...

        1. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Unlikely admittedly, as deadline passed, but still possible.

        Triple blue arrow up. Delta of 5045. Probably not tonight...

    Watford never quite regenearated their centre backs, have they?
    Only CB reinforcement they got was Craig Dawson. Option include Kabasele, Cathcart, Prodl, Mariappa etc. Almost all were here the last time Flores reigned, I think.

    Gracia was f***ed by the board.

    What is the best site to use for live leagues?

    I use livefpl and it is great, but it takes so long to load each league

    1. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Once it's loaded in livefpl, you won't have to load it again for the gameweek. Also you can refresh before the ten seconds it shows, and most probably you will find it loaded

      1. Big Troy Deeney
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Oh right I see

        Got a question (don't mean for this to sound arsy, but) how come the sites goes down after games - is it because that time is such a high traffic magnet?

        1. Ragabolly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah a huge spike in traffic that I have been trying my best to accommodate but since the website shows dynamic data (i.e. every user sees their own updated data all the time not just a fixed static webpage), it's very hard to accommodate those 5-minute spikes..

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Hi all - anyone know whether chambers is likely to stay in the arsenal team? Stats look good and given this is fifth defender could be worth a punt

          1. Big Troy Deeney
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Likely

          2. F4L
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Bellerin hasn't looked his old self since coming back, so Chambers could have a good run as long as he keeps playing well.

            1. Mweene
              • 6 Years
              6 months, 22 days ago

              Playing well? You must have pretty low standards

              1. in sane in de bruyne
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                6 months, 22 days ago

                You have to compare to the rest of their defenders. Bellerin is garbage in my eyes

          3. Mweene
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Should be out as soon as Bellerin is fully fit. Not even close to being a full-back.

          4. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Bellerin was a great pick till his hair took over his career

            I feel sorry for the current generation if they are paying for this.

          At the start of a new gameweek FPL Statistics updates the net transfers in/out of each player. Do they know which transfers were made on a wildcard and recalculate accordingly?

            Cheers lads. Hope it's reliable as it means I don't have to make my moves until tomorrow at the earliest.

          Can anyone explain how someone like Pukki can have such a drop in form? Is it that other teams figure out their game plan and can easily stifle their attack? Confidence issues?

              Got a consolation at Anfield which probably put him on top of the world, then ran into a clueless Newcastle back line. Good against weak Chelsea & City defences.

              Norwich started losing so Farke had to sure things up a bit more, less chances for Pukki (he wasn't getting many anyway), teams figuring them out, it all added up.

              He will now score in 10 minutes.

            Just a purple patch, that's all. Some of his goals were lucky

            Norwich are playing with less confidence so are providing less quality chances for him.

            I think for various reasons Norwich over performed in first few games and have regressed to thier norm for how should have performed this season.
