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.

    Funny how I was getting mocked for saying I regret Tammy to Jimenez

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Doubt it was to do with the transfer, just mocking you in general.

    2. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Is tammy fit for next gw? I think lamps will manage his minuites

      1. The Dance
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Lamps needs him, wouldn’t be surprised if he threw him straight into the mix

      2. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 12 days ago

        He's 100% playing. Everyone has made a huge error

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Even if I did the same, I'd still mock people regretting it. We all knew the risks.

    4. PepTalk
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      You typically bring players in for 45 mins worth?

    5. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years

      Its half time.

    6. Destroyer of teams

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      • 11 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      mousset

    3. La Roja

      Mousset

    4. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Pukki hasn’t blanked since his new haircut...

      No brainer!

      1. Daniel S.
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        maybe it is the haircut hahah. Too bad I sold Cantwell. He started exploding. maybe it was myself 🙂 ahahaha I broke him hahaha

    5. Gobigorgohome
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      why

  6. Skloppy Kops
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    When is Abraham back?
    Best replacement for 8.5? Or is it better benching him and switch Pope?

  7. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Between these 2, whom will u prioritize to get in first for next midweek game?

    1) Zaha
    2) Alli

    1. Daniel S.
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      In the same dilemma myself too. Really difficult decision. maybe Alli can wait after the City game?

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Zaha midweek and Alli weekend. That's what I'm planning.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Thats the logic thing to do, but form over fixture?

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Zaha has form on his side too.

          I'm still undecided between Alli or Son. Want to see one more game.

  8. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Mcgoldrick misses another good chance

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      That’s the Irishman in him...

    2. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Worst striker after Joelinton

  9. Bouncebackability
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    If it wasn’t for Vardys fixture next gameweek, Lundstram would have the armband.

  10. Gobigorgohome
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Mousset miss another chance

  11. Lindelol
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 12 days ago

    If the first player on your bench didn't play with the autosub takes the points of second on the bench or not?

    1. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      will not with

  12. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Another penalty incoming

  13. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Is the Lord looking dangerous?

    1. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Getting into decent positions

  14. baps sniffer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Is Auba more central during this half?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Laca wider it seems but they’ll be fluid.

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Exchanging positions

  15. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Tempted to move towards a Vardy Mousset Ayew frontline - Vardy obvious, but Mousset and Ayew dead cheap and getting it done with good fixtures.... Laca Jimenez rn. Those moves would give me a massive 8.5m ITB total 😆

    Can upgrade any of Mount Maddison Dendo Rico then

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      I think you'll regret one or two of those cheapie

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Possibly. Jimenez been good til now but apparently Wolves look dead on their feet? & Lacazette brought in this wk for Tammy has gone crap so far lol.

        just feel there could be some real value there

    2. Daniel S.
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Jimmy Tammy Rashford Inggs?

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Currently own Jimenez but hearing Wolves are struggling? Just sold Tammy. Not rly interested in United players while OGS is there. Ings maybe

  16. Trophé Mourinho
    7 months, 12 days ago

    blades so good, the new wolves

    1. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Wolves being ruined by Europa league. Squad not solid enough for 2 big competitions

  17. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Tielemans to Son/Alli an upgrade?

    Will make the move after Utd-Tot game.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Perhaps, but look at Leicester next three.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        I'll sell him after the game against Watford midweek.

    2. Hybrid.power
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Did it this week. Obviously praying for a blank from him this week but I wanted Schmeichel so had to drop him as I have Vardy and soyuncu already

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Unfortunately he’s very good at that.

  20. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Handball. Arsenal should have two pens for that.

  21. Trophé Mourinho
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Lunds about to score a screamer any minute

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      can't wait. that should kick jimenez into scoring gear too

  22. TaiwanHC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    What’s the effective ownership of Vardy in the top 10k vs Everton?

    1. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      150

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      7 months, 12 days ago

      150% lol

    3. Wilshere Knowledge
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      About 140% I believe.

      1. Daniel S.
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        oh my. too much

  23. Lamplighters
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Let’s hope Freddie finds a place for Guendouzi on the bench!

  24. Hybrid.power
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Dunno what I was thinking bringing Patricio in on my wildcard

  25. Collie01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Wolves can't get it past midfield.

  26. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Man U should of binned Dave & used Hendo!

    1. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Will happen soon.

  27. Gobigorgohome
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    if McGoldrick is any better.. Lord would have had two assists and one goal alraleady

  28. Kroos Kontrol
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Can I squeeze a start in for Cantwell? Please note that with 2 FTs, Mount is probably going out for a (likely) starting player.

    Pope
    TAA Lundstram Robbo
    De Bruyne Mount* Tielemans Mane
    Abraham Vardy Rashford

    McGovern, Cantwell, Soyuncu, Kelly

    *going to be transferred out

  29. Ady87
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    2 goals on my bench. Lund first sub coming on for me. Cantwell and Willems 2nd and 3rd.

    Fantastic!

  30. Gobigorgohome
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    that Jimenez pass
