Injury worry for Aguero’s owners as Sterling is frustrated by VAR call

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) | N’Golo Kante (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Rodrigo (£5.4m) | Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Mahrez x3 Kovacic x2 Kante x1

Fantasy and reality declined to intertwine as Manchester City came from behind to defeat Chelsea.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) kept City’s title defence the right side of possible, but the match was close to disastrous for most Fantasy managers.

Of the ten players on show with significant Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership figures, only De Bruyne (39.8%) delivered, although VAR was at its fractional worst when deciding a late Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) goal was offside.

That denied 33.4% of managers a first return from the England winger since Gameweek 10, but the 20% with Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) in their teams had it even worse.

The striker blanked for the fourth time in his last five games and then limped off after 76 minutes.

Coach Pep Guardiola was less than optimistic with his initial assessment of the injury, saying:

It doesn’t look good for Aguero. It’s muscular. The doctor said we will see tomorrow. I’ve no idea how long he will be out.

Rodrigo (£5.4m) and David Silva (£7.6m) also had to be replaced on Saturday, although Guardiola was considerably less worried about the pair and said:

For Rodri and Silva it is more tiredness and cramps. Rodri was out for a month and games like today are so demanding, but with determination and suffering in certain moments, we did it.

Aguero has lost more than half a million managers over the last six Gameweeks and is already the second-most-sold player ahead of next weekend’s trip to Newcastle United.

The injury problem aside, things could – and really should – have been rather different for the Argentinian on Saturday. He was gifted a superb chance when Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) passed the ball straight to him, but he could only hit the bar with the goal at his mercy.

It was the finish of a man way below his best; a man who scored eight goals in the first six Gameweeks of the season and has managed just the one since.

Small wonder that his ownership is on the wane, with Sterling’s similarly affected.

To call the midfielder ineffectual against Chelsea is almost too kind. He created no chances and his only shot of the game was then wiped off by VAR.

Yes, the offside decision was marginal. And yes, although it was technically the correct one, it was another example of VAR sucking the soul out of the game one measly millimetre at a time. But the goal, had it stood, would have been harsh on Chelsea and decidedly flattering for the otherwise anonymous Sterling.

He’s now blanked for three straight matches and with a triple header of Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester City to come from Gameweeks 16 to 18, it’s no surprise that he’s currently the only player suffering more sales than Aguero.

City’s win was down to the industry of De Bruyne and the consistent threat of Mahrez.

The Belgian equalised when his shot deflected in off Kurt Zouma (£4.7m), a stroke of luck that turned a match that had been previously bossed by the visitors.

Mahrez’s winner capped a strong comeback by Guardiola’s men, the Algerian taking Rodrigo‘s (£5.4m) regulation pass out wide and weaving back inside before finding the bottom corner with his trusted left foot.

It was a goal enjoyed by only 3.5% of managers; a figure unlikely to shoot up any time soon unless the midfielder is given an extended run in the side. He’s started only six games this season and Saturday’s was his first since Gameweek 8, a fact almost certainly down to the one-match ban being served by Bernardo Silva (£7.9m).

Frank Lampard’s side allowed City just 46.74% of the ball – the lowest figure experienced by a Guardiola side in his 381 matches as a coach – and it was done thanks to a midfield three of Jorginho (£5.1m), N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) and Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m).

The selections meant a first match on the bench for the 32%-owned Mason Mount (£6.8m), but Lampard’s switch was more than justified when the latter pair combined for the opening goal.

Mount rightly caught the eye with his four goals and two assists from 12 straight starts this season, although his output had slowed to just one assist from the previous four Gameweeks heading into Saturday’s clash.

Kante, however, continues to surprise as an attacking force. He made consistent runs forward against City and was rewarded with a third goal of the campaign.

And before anyone shrugs and points out that Mount has 59 points to Kante’s 28, injuries have meant the Frenchman has only started five matches this season, and yet he’s scored in three of them.

Having played just 467 minutes so far – Mount has managed 1,054 – it seems inconceivable that Kante won’t now be given an extended run in the side if he can stay fit. His defensive attributes are world-renowned, but an attacking flair first unearthed by the much-maligned Maurizio Sarri could make him a bargain with one (or both) of Jorginho and Kovacic to hold the fort when he bursts forward.

Chelsea certainly have the fixtures to justify such a punt, with trips to Spurs and Arsenal the major tests to come over the next ten Gameweeks.

That should mean Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) keeps – or even extends – his game-leading 50.6% ownership in FPL despite a muted display at The Etihad which involved only two shots, neither of which were on target, and a mere two touches in the penalty area.

Similarly, Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) was lively enough to suggest his blank against City could well be the exception rather than the rule.

Of more concern to Fantasy managers will be the defensive shortcomings of both sides.

With Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) still a way off a return from his knee injury, City’s defence continues to be a fragile beast, which is bad news for the 15.7% with Ederson (£6.0m) in their teams.

At least he played on Saturday. The 13% invested in Kyle Walker (£5.8m) saw their man benched, a move which didn’t stop City conceding for the third straight match.

Chelsea’s backline is considerably more generous, keeping just three clean sheets all season, although the 8.4%-owned Fikayo Tomori (£4.9m) was a post’s width away from a second goal of the campaign that would have offset his lack of consistent defensive returns.

Should Lampard decide that his new-look midfield three is the key to both control of possession and increased stability at the back, Mount could be the major casualty. Next weekend’s team sheet for the visit of West Ham United will tell us more.

Explaining his decision to bench Mount ahead of kick-off, Lampard said:

It’s nice problem to have. Mason has been so good for us. There will be areas of rotation.

What seems clear for now is that their display, albeit a losing one, at The Etihad and their fine fixtures to come mean Chelsea’s assets should remain attractive for a long while yet.

The same cannot be said for City’s stars.

The side has a brittle feel to it this season and although their game management against Chelsea was impressive enough, seeing out a match ticks few Fantasy boxes when clean sheet points are no longer at stake.

And the form and fitness of some of their key attacking personnel, when combined with the inevitable downside that is Pep Roulette, could make continued investment a costly affair.

    How's this sound?

    Looking at connolly to Mousset either this or next week. But also have CHO who looks to be dropping in price.

    A) Downgrade CHO to have money itb
    B) upgrade CHO and give myself a benching headache

    So would be lining up for the sea of green fixtures with:

    Hendo
    TAA Perreira Lund
    KDB Mount Mane Martial
    Abraham Vardy Mousset
    (Gaz, Kelly/Williams, Rico, CHO)

    1. Balls in Behind
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Moussets a good option at his price if he’s fit, but the guy looked like he pulled his hamstring tonight, I’d be surprised if he’s playing next weekend - you probably wont have a benching headache at all!

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers, he was just tight and had cramp. Fitness ain't 100% so never plays full 90 but wilder loves him

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Like the Connolly to Mousset move. (I’m doing that next GW)
      Honestly, I would downgrade CHO and upgrade Martial to Son if you can afford?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Yh that did enter my mind, give Martial villa first

    3. nibirislam17
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Cool

    4. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I’m eyeing the same move some
      Point before GW18.

      What’s the update on his injury or was it just cramp?

  2. acidicleo
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Bottomed...

    Current defence:
    TAA Robbo Lund Soy Montoya

    Feels like either one on the pool def or Soy is waste of funds as I always play Lund.
    Hence ready to get rid of either.

    A) Mount + Soy to Pulisic + 4.4 or less eg. rico / williams (utd)
    B) Mount + Robbo/TAA to Son + 4.4 or less

    Planning to use WC around Xmas time (maybe around Pool blank GW)

    Cheers...TIA...

  3. jblakes
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    If I got mount in at 6.1m would you drop him for pulisic?
    Really can't decide on this one.

    1. nibirislam17
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I ll hold 2 more weeks

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I’m keeping Mount for now. He looked good this GW for the short time he was on.

    3. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      same dilemma..undecided..

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      If you are able to have both for the next two, I'd hold Mount. If you can't have both - I'd personally swap Mount for Pulisic.

      (I'm likely having both FYI.)

    5. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I'm going Pulisic and Mount

      1. jblakes
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Already have Abraham, don't want three Chelsea attacking players. Think I'll hold ft and see what happens at weekend

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah, thats fair enough, I've Kane over Abraham...yeah hold til closer to deadline at least, GL

  4. nibirislam17
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Good Evening all. Will you be bench boost this week?

    Pope Gazzinaga
    TAA Soy Lunds Aurier Maguire
    Son Mane Mount Maddison Cantwell
    Tammy Vardy Maupay

    Also, will u do Maupay > Ings for a hit?

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Good ebening,

      No, BBC for dgws

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Sorry, bb, bench boost

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      No, don't use your Bench Boost now.

      Your team leaves a lot of money on the bench.

      Can you downgrade Maguire > [cheapie]? If you've already made a transfer, I'd hold though.

  5. Fernando Torres
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Is Pulisic nailed?

    Worry he may get rested

    1. Podge
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      He’ll probably get a match off over the next few weeks but that goes for just about everyone. Nailed enough for me.

    2. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      i think so...he has been very good..

  6. Bruno Bruno!!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Given there is only a 1 day gap between end of GW14 and start of GW15 is it sensible to target players with 2 home games in a row e.g Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea. Or is the risk off rotation the same no matter how the fixtures fall

  7. Villa Velour
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    On WC, team value isn't the best so this is what I'm working with. Thoughts?

    Henderson, Button;
    Chilwell, Lund, TAA, Tomori, Williams;
    Maddison, Mane, Pulisic, Son, Fleck;
    Vardy, Jimenez, Abraham

    1. Podge
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Looks good to me

  8. Bouncebackability
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Why is everyone transferring in players with champions league games yet to play?! I get Leicester players and maybe even United or wolves as don’t see Rash, Martial or Jiminez starting in Europe, but not Liverpool, Chelsea or spurs

    1. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Everyone isn't. People who are doing nothing don't post updates to tell you they are doing nothing

      1. Bouncebackability
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        That’s fair

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I made an early move last night out of sheer panic and I'm not sure why looking back, I've been making late moves recently and sticking to a plan, regret it now.

      1. Bouncebackability
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        I don’t mind an early transfer myself, but wouldn’t be getting a player who has a game yet to play that’s all.

    3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Price rises

    4. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      my reason is that I've no leeway if prices change (Richarlison + James to Pulisic + Tielemans) plus I've a playing bench and its a game so not the end of the world

    5. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Because Ive had it with Raheem Sterling and his fat butt

  9. Basil1977
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Just reading through the last few pages of comments looks like everyone is doing Mount to Pulisic. Looks like Pulisic isn't going to be my differential for much longer, in need of another one. Was thinking Son but he looks like the second most popular transfer in on here.

    Thoughts on Firmino as my new differential as part of a Liverpool double up with Mane? Giving me a front 3 of Vardy, Abraham and Firmino

    1. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Kane

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Still too early to define son as a jon differential.
      He will be owned by 30% in a few gws.
      Jump in him now

    3. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Son is still very low owned?

    4. Basil1977
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      can't afford Kane, basicly with my 2 transfers it's Son with Greenwood in a 3-5-2 or Firmino and Hayden in a 3-4-3

    5. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Moura/Alli if you want a differential mid at around that price point.

      Yep Firmino is good too.

  10. Fernando Torres
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    What's better

    A) Kane + Pulisic
    B) Son + Jimi (-4)

    Most in my ML will have Son

    1. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      A

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I've gone A, Kane in last week, Pulisic in this week so prefer that one for no hit in your case.
      (also own Jimenez though)

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        No Lundstram my friend.

        Not starting him makes him a differential

    2. jia you jia you

    Best replacement of Diop for 4.4 maximum?

    A. Guilbert - Assist potential, Nice GW18 fixture, Worst xG conceded
    B. Fernandez - 1g 2a in last 3 match, GW18 fixture, Nailed?
    C. Kelly - Great run of fixture, How long Ward will be out?
    D. Taylor - 2 CS in last 2 match, Competition for first team place
    E. Any other Newcastle def

    1. Basil1977

  13. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 11 days ago

    I got rid of KdB last night and I'm already regretting it, now I have to decide between no Liv attack or no city attack, which would you choose? Only own TAA from both currently.

    1. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Mane essential

    2. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I’m possibly booting KDB out tonight, i don’t think i’d regret it much? He hasn’t looked the same and City are a bit all over the show at the moment i’d say? Rodri may be struggling as well

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Aye, that's what I was thinking last night, could just be a bit of the fear, I got Son instead.

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Son is much more attacking, i’d feel confident in that move mate, and it’s the move i’ll be making shortly actually.

    3. ...al
      • 11 Years

      Sold KdB last week and sterling this week

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Hes gone for me and I dont regret it. Son looking at least as good. More likely to score goals while KDB gets assists

  14. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    CHO or his replacement likely to stay sat on my bench for this gw. Would you get rid of him now before his drop or just take the 0.1 and weigh up options as not entirely sure who to bring in

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Take the drop mate.

    Official r/FantasyPL Discord
    Discord brings gaming/online communication out of the stone age. It's free, easy to use, and with you even while you are AFK. You can check out an extensive list of advanced features on the Discord landing page The simplicity with Discord that it does not need any phone number or software to be downloaded, you can simply open it as a webpage but also has an option of installing software if you'd like to. It also has a mobile app.

    I started using Discord for online gaming but it's started to spread to wider communities. The built in text window is fun and useful for FantasyPL. It is used for live RMT, live gameweek rants, memes, news, all kinds of things. The voice part could also be used if people want to chat. You can use any web browser to open it which I use in work and have the software on my home PC. It also has a great mobile app.

      Its a cointoss. I went with Pulisic as I might want to double up on Leicester defenders

      1. Danno - Emre Canada

        Cheers guys, good point about double Leicester

    Anyone? Got £1.8 and 2 FTs. This is not a good enough team to burn a FT. Happy to even go for -4...

    Gazza/ McG
    TAA/ Soy/ Tomori/ Rico/ Lund
    KDB/ Martial/ Maddy/ Mount/ Mane
    Kane/ Tammy/ Connelly

    1. Connelly - Ayew
    2. Kane + Martial - Jesus + Son
    3. Must be something better?

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Mount --> Pulisic imo.
      I would also have Son instead of Kane.
      Should have some extra funds to strengthen then backline a little as well.

        thanks, I keep that in mind it's hard when you speak 4 different languages.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      That's the plan for next week

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Why not this week?

        1. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Already -4 to bring son and jim for raz and Connolly

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 11 days ago

            Ahh. Would you recommend me doing the move now then? Could also wait one week. As I might want to shift Tomori instead

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I didn't watch yesterday's match but as a Chilwell owner, I was considering the opposite move to allow Reid to Tomori upgrade.

      Do you think that Chilwell's offensive output justifies the additional price over Soy?

      1. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        i watched the extended highlights. I thought he definitely looked on the front foot. I would like to have both, soy and chil. Not sure he's worth more than soy but could definitely see the odd assist and bonus points over the short term. Both certainly better value picks than pereira imo

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Thanks I appreciate the input. I'll check out the extended highlights in that case. Doubling up on Leicester defenders could also be an option as I don't own Maddison/Tielemans but the concern is GW18 as I'm not sure I want to play 3 Leicester players against City away.

  24. MikeLowrey
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Which move is the best?

    A) Wilson to Jimenez
    B) CHO to McGinn
    C) Wilson & CHO to Laca & Hayden (-4)
    D) Wilson to Moussett

    Will be WC after the Liverpool blank

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years

      A for me

  25. Rondon9
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Who would you cap in GW14?

    A Son
    B Salah
    C Vardy
    D Abraham

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Not D
      Never plays 90

    2. Ashante'Kotoko
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      D

    3. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      B depending on midweek and pressers

    4. ...al
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Mane and Vardy

  26. ...al

    How many takers have we got for Pulisic in for Mount?

    1. Basil1977
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      seems the most common transfer in this week, followed by Sterling/Kdb for Son

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I just got convinced to do it.. Had a spare FT so pulled the tigger early to capalize on priceswings

      Not sure it was the right move tbh. Pulisic could just be flavour of month and dip in form again. But there are plenty of other similar priced I could swap him for later (Martial, Maddisson etc)

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Capatalize*

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Third time's a charm?

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 11 days ago

            Geez.. Capitalize*

    3. Futbol Heritage
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Did it just now, couldn't afford after price changes.

      Held him cos he seemed nailed, that's not true anymore.

      I still think Mount is great just that Tammy, Pulisic, Tomori are the best Chelsea FPL assets currently so Mount has to go.

    4. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      I couldn't afford, so went to KdB > Son. I can also afford Mount to drop .1 now without losing sv.

    5. ...al
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Might just do it myself, but for a hit.

      I've been aggressive with transfers of late andit's paying off, I don't trust Mount's minutes with Kante back and the price swings of course kinda swaying too.

      Pulisic should have that left wing nailed in a 433 and has the left attacking mid nailed in a 433. His stats were trumping Mounts along with the minutes, two home games ahead and might jus tbe worth the punt. I've spare cash floating around with Sterling out and those two fixtures are juicy with Chelsea's decent enough form

      1. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        Speaking of aggresive transfers, about to do KDB + Mount + Tomori > Son + Pulisic + Taylor 🙂

        A fan? 😉

        1. ...al
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 11 days ago

          Son and Pulisic yay, Taylor is a bit shifty

          1. The Dance
            • 9 Years
            10 months, 11 days ago

            yeah true, thinking of leaving it for tonight as i'll lose no value on Mount

  27. Joyce1998
    • 4 Years

    walker or mendy nailed ??

  28. Ashante'Kotoko
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    How about these transfers ?
    Dunk+Guilbert+Martial>>Tomori+Aurier+Madison -8
    0.000 itb

    Looking cool?

    Henderson
    Aurier. Lund. Tomori. /// Kelly. Rico
    Salah. Mane. Madison. Son. ///Traore
    Vardy. Ings(c). Abraham

    Thanks

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years

      Not for a - 8. I'd keep Martial for villa

      1. Ashante'Kotoko
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 11 days ago

        I did it already to avoid price changes 🙁
        plus ManU isn't that convincing against weaker teams so I don't entirely regret it
        Martial(AVL ToT mci EvE)
        Maddison(EvE WaT avl NoR)
        Tomori(WhM AVL eve BoU)
        Aurier(BoU mun BuR wol)

  29. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Who'd have thought I'd be upset with 2 points from Tottenham away and Man U at home. Should be 6 but onwards and upwards. Wolves away is a v interesting one

  30. DNFPL
    10 months, 11 days ago

    Is this madness?

    Hayden, Mount, Sterling, Deulofeu > Moura, Pulisic, Son, Ayew (-8)

    1. Monkey Hanger
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Pretty much yes.

    2. ...al
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 11 days ago

      Yes
