Henderson returns for the Blades as Wolves hand start to £4.0m FPL defender

There are four Premier League matches taking place today, with the first double-header kicking off at 14:00 GMT.

Fresh from their win over Everton, Norwich City take on an Arsenal side who are under the stewardship of Freddie Ljungberg for the first time.

Meanwhile, at Molineux, sixth hosts seventh as Wolverhampton Wanderers face Sheffield United.

The Blades welcome back Dean Henderson (£4.7m) and John Egan (£4.5m) for this encounter, with the pair returning from ineligibility and injury respectively.

Understudies Simon Moore (£4.4m) and Phil Jagielka (£4.2m) make way, while there is another run-out up front for the in-form Lys Mousset (£5.1m).

Wolves have made only one change and it is an enforced one, at that: budget Fantasy Premier League defender Max Kilman (£4.0m) gets his first start at centre-half as Romain Saiss (£4.4m) is suspended.

Raul Jimenez (£7.7m), the most-bought player of Gameweek 14, starts again in attack.

Interim Arsenal boss Ljungberg has made four changes from Unai Emery’s final Premier League line-up.

Having made his return from exile in the Europa League on Thursday night, Granit Xhaka (£5.2m) is back in a Premier League starting XI for the first time since that ill-fated draw with Crystal Palace in Gameweek 10.

Having impressed against Eintracht Frankfurt, Shkodran Mustafi (£5.2m) makes his first league start of 2019/20.

Joe Willock (£4.9m) and Sead Kolasinac (£5.3m) are also recalled as Kieran Tierney (£5.4m), Lucas Torreira (£4.7m) and Sokratis Papastathopoulos (£5.0m) are named on the bench, along with Nicolas Pepe (£9.1m).

Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) misses out through injury.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) and Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) will again lead the line.

Norwich’s team news is far more straightforward, with Ibrahim Amadou (£4.5m) replacing Alex Tettey (£4.5m) in midfield.

Jamal Lewis (£4.5m) returns from injury but is only among the substitutes, while Todd Cantwell (£4.6m) has shaken off an ankle injury to start.


Norwich City XI: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Zimmermann, Byram, Amadou, Trybull, Hernandez, Cantwell, McLean, Pukki.

Arsenal XI: Leno, Chambers, Mustafi, David Luiz, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Willock, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette.

Wolves XI: Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Kilman, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Adama, Jimenez, Jota.

Sheffield United XI: Henderson, Stevens, O’Connell, Egan, Basham, Baldock, Fleck, Norwood, Lundstram, Mousset, McGoldrick.

    The Arsenal formation - auba and laca could do some real damage

    Right then, for those of us who still have wildcards, I presume GW18 and the huge fixture swing is the time to pull the trigger? What say you all?

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

      Teams solid at moment might just see when to use, wk 20 last week?

      1. Dave Bauer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        I’d need to check but I presume so.

    2. tiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Yep, looking at GW18 at the moment.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      GW19 is my current plan.

      1. Dave Bauer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        Just a personal preference or is there a specific reason for 19 over 18 that I’m missing?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 days, 21 hours ago

          Because 18 isn't a good week to do it. There are no standout games to target, and I'll still be keeping x2 Liverpool even if I wildcard.

      2. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        I have exactly the same overall points as you but you have WC and it seems as if you are 50 points ahead of me 😀

    4. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Certainly a big opportunity (though i used mine). Was thinking about it this morning and seems the last scoutcast delved into it. Today's games will give us more insight

    5. Conik
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      20 is my plan. Liv out for 18 and 19.

    6. jtreble

      Yup. GW19 WC here.

    7. Dave Bauer

      Food for thought there, thanks all.

    Pope
    TAA - Lundy - Soy
    Mane - Pulisic - Tielemans - Mount
    Kane - Vardy - Jimenez

    (4.0 Tomori Cantwell Rico)
    1ft & 3.3m

    A)
    GW15: Mount ➡️ Zaha
    GW16: Tielemans ➡️ Alli/Son

    B)
    GW15: Pope ➡️ Guaita or Save FT

    Up 10K places with 4 to go including Vardy(c) and Jiminez. The -4 looks to have payed off.

    I wonder if Tammy sellers will be successful or not, we’ll know by next weekend i suppose!

    1. drughi
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Will he be back midweek though ?

    2. The Cisco Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Yup. It was a big decision point for this season, and honestly, there’s nothing other than gut feeling to rely on to make it. Those are the kinds of choices we didn’t have to make early in the season, when so many struggled to get to their desired OR.

    3. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 9 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Too early to judge your -4. Autosubs and today's fixture could still sink you

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      I'm confident that if he does play against Villa, that a Villa player will give him a smack where his injury is and it will mean he is out for even longer than if he had just missed a few games now.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Lol

    5. Amey
      • 1 Year
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Sold Tammy for Ings as FT myself.

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        Good move. A goal in his next 2 and it will be a great move. I personally went Sterling, Cantwell, Tammy > Son, Pulisic and Jiminez

        A Jiminez goal and its a success.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 21 hours ago

          Like all3 incoming players mate.

    6. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      10 days, 21 hours ago

      Next weekend? We’ll know before next game

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        Yeah true. But he could be on the bench vs Villa and start and score a brace against Everton. I just meant that after the next 2 games, we will know for sure.

        1. ZICO SENNA
          • 8 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Ahh yeah that makes sense

    7. Zlatanzo
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        Most will pay off short term, but long term is the real question. Using 2 transfers to take him out and then back in again for a more or less essential player this season isn't worth it... we were shown that with KDB earlier this season

      • Conik
        • 3 Years
        10 days, 21 hours ago

        Most likely is that it is not a huge decision one way or the other. Basically going to need to be a big score v VIlla to make much difference.

      • Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        I think those they had a decent player to come in off the bench and didn’t ‘need’ to use a transfer will find out pretty soon if keeping Tammy has paid off this week, but if Tammy is out for just one game (Lund plays for me) it was an easy choice to hold ... different team strategies always at play in these cases

    8. Tsparkes10

      Egan also returns :). Mousset going to rip this 4.0m kid to shreds

      1. iL PiStOlErO

          Wouldn't mind it. Choco bombs incoming

          Cmonnn Sir Lund make my day, also Mousse make it even sweeter.

          When you are looking for a 0-0 at Carrow Road and a 3-3 at Molineux, you know something went wrong with team planning :0(

          Especially when you see Arsenal's back four!

              Anyone thinking of selling Tomori?

              3 CHE might be too much...

                Pukki vs Mustafi. Could be an interesting battle.

                Am I just getting caught up in the hype or is Luiz and Mustafi the worst back two in the league?
