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.

    Pukki party experiencing some delays

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Pukki is done, so is Farke.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        They won't sack Farke. Norwich haven't spent the money to compete at this level. They're making sure they're not in a precarious situation if they get relegated.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          But they did fantastically well early on, why change the system? Being more defensive means he will loose almost all games. Needs to start attacking like first few gameweeks.

      2. Scott Talent
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Farke was the one that got them promoted - highly unlikely to sack him. It's the lack of spending ability that puts them in this situation.

    2. Pras Scott Talent
      • 8 Years

      It is a party for the sellers

      Did you?

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Of course not, as usual. Captained Martial

    2. Utd and Dallas Cowboys

      6 months, 23 days ago

      Been loads of these posts tonight - doesn’t count for anything if you don’t go on to get him

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, thought he was a bit short term and Deeney back may decrease his involvement.

    Watford switching off for a late Pukki party.

  20. IRBOX ⚽

    8-| could be an own goal? Needs further review to see if Gray got a touch I reckon

  21. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    1.9% nice differential?

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Is that how low Pukki's gonna get to after this game?!

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      The issue is will he keep his form going forward?

      1. g40steve

    If they reviewed the kdb goal then they have to review that

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Kdb goal or Dilva goal?

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Well yes the one given to d Silva

        They went on an extensive review of that goal. How about some consistency even for lesser known/owned players

      2. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Was a clear Sterling goal...

    2. Silecro
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      i think kdb's goal was reviewed mainly because he openly admitted that silva touched it. Doubt it similar thing will happen here

  23. Little Red Lacazette
