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.

    Decent start Jimenez, keep it going.

    Doherty was rightly pumped up on the Scoutcast. Great differential now when we have a lot of money at disposal.

    Lundstram fail

      Lack of clean sheets is the problem. Will he score enough?

    Own both Jimi and Lundstram. Wolves goal didn't change my live score but my rank improved by 27K.

    1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC not us…
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      because Lundstram is highly owned compared to Jimmy.

      Now Jimmy goal is upcoming.

    1. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I mean he is too expensive

        1. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Oh thought you meant he was cheap.

          He must have been a difficult one to price after last year.
