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.

    Fair to say we won't be seeing cantwell for a while after this performance

    1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Awful!

  6. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

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

  7. Sun Jihai

    Digne is going to have a field day vs. Norwich

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Digne in next week then move to Robbo could be a plan!

  8. NED KELLY
    • 8 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    Captain Salah if you have him

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      What if I have sterling too and prefer to cap him?

  9. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

    Hearing the Pukki party has been rescheduled for next week

    1. Rainer

      In Finland?

    2. Twisted Saltergater

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

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        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
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          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.

    3. Nomar

      Given my invite back already.

      All that’s left is peeps picking through ashtrays looking for dog ends that they can make a rolly out of.
      Everybody else has left and is writhing about in vodka and charlie

    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
      6 months, 23 days ago

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

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

      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
      6 months, 23 days ago

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

      1. Nomar

    1. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Arsenal should strike now before it is too late.

      C'mon Foster, drop a BAP.

  21. pjanns

    Diop - Montoya —> robertson - Reid?

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

    Deulofeu 3
    Foster 2
    Janmaat 1

    Close between Foster & Janmaat, could both get 2.

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 23 days 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

  23. fachada
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 23 days 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
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Oh what a night.

      1. fachada
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

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

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wow nice

  24. TaiwanHC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

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

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Sure, why not

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

      Hell no

      1. TaiwanHC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Why not?

  25. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    Just get whoever plays Norwich.

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

      I did but it never works for me

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

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

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Well yes. Digne or Rich could be a juicy punt

  26. Old Bull
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    What are the chances of Mousset starting this week?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Decent chance. Three assists last week.

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

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

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

  27. Regin
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

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

    Is laca or firmino worth a punt?

    1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Jimi

  28. Monkey Hanger
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    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. 🙂

  29. BDA Shadow
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 23 days ago

    So it's too late to make changes for this gameweek, right? hahah.

    1. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 23 days ago

      Casual

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        More casual than a pair of flip flops.

  30. Nomar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 23 days 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

    1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
      • 10 Years

      Save wc
