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.

    feel sorry for the one who sold Auba for Laca

      Laca at home next. Patience is needed here imo.

    Patience, not stubbornness, pays off

    Sterling last 10 pl starts = 3 goals 1 assist

      Cantwell looking more dangerous than Auba

        Anyone swapped out Auba for Laca?

        1. Skloppy Kops
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Swapped for Ings

        I hate Auba. He is my personal troll.

        When I got him, I thought to myself: Yeah now he will start blanking. And he did.

        Then I sold him last week and I thought to myself: Now he will start scoring again. 🙁

        Last season was the same thing. I got him for all his blanks and he managed to finish as the top scoring forward.

            I did Tammy to Ings. Wouldn't be surprised if he plays and scores. With my luck

        What is better combo for the festive period?

        Pulisic and Martial or

        Zaha and Alli?

        Please advise.

          Arsenal without Aubameyang and Leno would be in the relegation battle.

          Auba consistently trolls me tbh, this season and last.

          Last season got him at all the wrong times inc over Aguero when it was a 50/50 but Auba had better fixtures - Kun 2 x hattricks, Auba blanks and misses games.

          This season got him after consistency at the start, only for him to blank, sold on WC a few weeks ago and he starts scoring again haha.
