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.

      Both Pukki and Cantwell look like they’ve never played the game before

        Think I'm the last one out. I'll turn off the lights.

          I held one week more than I should have. Would've been able to get 0.1m more and Jimenez if I had moved quickly. But at least I got out two weeks ago!

          1. Twisted Saltergater

            Just super annoying. I've never ever been this patient before playing FPL, and there's not been any reward whatsoever.

            Think I'm going to get Richarlison just for Norwich game. They seem that bad.

      Meet the Manger interviewees always preach about patience & consistency.

      With how consistent Pukki has been, surely owners are holding for another month?

      1. Tomerick
        • 5 Years

        Meet the manger? It’s a bit early for the nativity show isn’t it?

        Every instinct told me to switch Pukki for Deulofeu before this game. But I've been burnt before selling a striker before a home game.

        This Norwich team are so poor, I just don't think they're competitive at the moment.

      3. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Patience usually means 4 GWs though. Pukey has been blanking for more than 4 GWs.

      Diop - Montoya —> robertson - Reid?

    • Rainer

      • 3 Years
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      Deulofeu 3
      Foster 2
      Janmaat 1

      Close between Foster & Janmaat, could both get 2.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Looks final on the FPL site maybe they just got it over with. Everyone made it clear from the start they don’t own Janmaat so they can score them fairly

    • fachada
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      Deulofeu and Janmaat got me from 101k to 30k.. not expected this punt to go so nicely

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Oh what a night.

          If the weekend goes as smooth as this evening, will be on a good jump

    • TaiwanHC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Mount and Pukki to Richarlison and Deulofeu for a one week punt for free? Will WC after GW13.

      1. HIT ME!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Sure, why not

      2. Longlatini
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Hell no

        1. TaiwanHC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 days, 21 hours ago

          Why not?

    • Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      Just get whoever plays Norwich.

      1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        I did but it never works for me

      2. Regin
        • 2 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Yeah. When playing free hit, triple up on Norwich opponent defenders.

      3. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
        • 4 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Well yes. Digne or Rich could be a juicy punt

    • Old Bull
      • 6 Years
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      What are the chances of Mousset starting this week?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Decent chance. Three assists last week.

        If he doesn't start, he often gets subbed on anyway.

      2. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 days, 21 hours ago

        Will play from start or manager likes to switch fwds during game.

    • Regin
      • 2 Years
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      Pukki out for
      A. Jimenez
      B. Firmino
      C. Lacazette

      Is laca or firmino worth a punt?

      Not a bad night, went up 8k in FPL without a player on the pitch.

      Did Gray to Deulofeu this week in draft.

      And capt. Foster for 24pts in the Sky game. 🙂

    • Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 days, 21 hours ago

      Time to WC this or just get rid of Pukki for Jimenez?

      Pope, Heaton
      Lundstram, Rico, Söyüncü, TAA, Otamendi
      Pulisic, Salah, KDB, Dendoncker, Tielemans
      Vardy, Pukki, Abraham

      If I WC it will likely be

      Henderson, Heaton
      Lundstram. Rico, Chilwell, TAA, Willems
      Mané, KDB, McGinn, Pulisic, James
      Vardy, Jimenez, Abraham
