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.

    Would be useful if Grealish does well today and Villa beat united like 1 or 2-0. Perfect Mount replacement enabling a possible Maddison to Son as well

        Something deeper in the matter i think.

          Agree. Probably why he was allowed to go there in the first place.

    Even though I was 99.9% sure I wouldn't get Cresswell's points off the bench... the confirmation is still a punch in the gut. :/

    1. Podge

      It’s the hope that kills

  10. Fudgy

    Not happy at all with only an assist from Jimenez and I frankly won't accept it.

    1. Would Ed Woodward

      Better than nothing!

    3. Regin

      Jimenez consistent but doesn't haul.

  11. Rainer

    18yo Saka before £70m Pepe...

    1. TAT
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      He's coming on for Cahill in my team. Desperate for him to score!

  12. Hernandez Lynam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    At the minute I have Tomori (AVH), Kelly (BOU), Cantwell (sou) & Pope (MCI) on my bench for mid week? Would that lot tempt any of you into using an early BB? been stung by Cantwell and Kelly bench points already this week

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years

      Why not?

      Wierd question... I don't see the connection

  14. My heart goes Salalalalah

    Oh how I need my Leicester triple-up to perform today...

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      Don't we all - too many points elsewhere.

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      Ditto

    3. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      Vardy is key for overall rank - but annoyingly most in my mini leagues have captained him.

      I’d love Tielmans to do well

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

        Who did you captain?

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 13 days ago

          Vardy

          Currently on 36 with Vardy (c) Tielmans and Soy to go - so I still have some hope of a green

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

            Ahhh sorry I thought you meant you capped someone else, I went for Son. I think you'll be fine, I'm 55 atm with Doh, Jimi, Lund playing then Vardy, Soy and Martial to come.

            1. TheDragon
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 13 days ago

              Oh wow - Awesome week for you.

              How’s the overall rank? I’m still languishing at 500k

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

                Still awful, hopefully back in the top 1m this week lol, been a long road back from 4.5m at one point earlier in the season following that month when I seemed to be playing Greenwood every week, 7 greens in a row since then at least, I should've probably WC'd earlier.

                1. TheDragon
                  • 2 Years
                  7 months, 13 days ago

                  Me too (re: wildcard)

                  Should’ve used it much earlier - we live and learn.

                  New goal is top 100k by 2nd of Jan and should still be able
                  to try to scrape top 10k by end of season

                2. Regin
                  • 2 Years
                  7 months, 13 days ago

                  U r the one who questioned my wc in gw2. My rank is currently 156k.

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

                    Well done! I did explain this to you before though, it wasn't your WC I was questioning, I asked if you were ok because you were posting multiple times in a row, it was a joke.

  15. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    Much better this from Arsenal. Guendouzi, Xhaka and Torreira providing a better screen for the defence from which to build from.

    1. Gnu Scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      I would suggest Guendouzi & Torreira would provide a better screen than one that includes Xhaka.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 13 days ago

        He’s actually not been that bad today.

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      I say that. Guendouzi then subbed 😀

    3. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      Yeah never understand how Torreira doesn't get a start every week in that midfield.

  16. Bobby Digital

    Hoping for a monster haul from Leicester

  17. Here Comes The Son ★
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    Jimenez is one of the very few players where you feel like you're guaranteed points. The amount of time this man has delivered... FPL legend.

  18. Tsparkes10

    What happened for wolves goal? Was it rightly given?? Can't find any working streams so fkin typical we concede when I stop watching

        1. Gobigorgohome
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 13 days ago

          he was offiside while build up.. dont know why Var did not check

            • 8 Years
            7 months, 13 days ago

        jota offside in the build up no var shove it

  19. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    This season I’ve got I think every 50:50 decision wrong.

    This weeks debacle - decided to keep Abraham and start Lundstram instead of get Ings and bench Lundstram.

    Looking like a 7+ point swing

    Irrelevant for 1 Week really but I’ve had at least 6 or 7 of these and for every one wrong for - 7 to -15 points.

    Shows the fine margins 🙁

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

      I did the same with Abraham, just hoping he's back for Villa, that could be a big score.

  20. ZAMUNDA
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    Auba hitting a brace right after I sold him, my only consolidation is that I got Ings/Son.. Still a bummer after such a 6-game patience

  21. Bookkeeper

    Can Jota do anything right?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      No

    2. G-Whizz

      Does putting your boots on the right feet count?

  22. GOTHAM City F.C.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 13 days ago

    Cantwell to Pulisic went well.

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      In your defence - it’s not exactly a transfer you can blame yourself for.

      I’ve owned Cantwell for 6 weeks this season - max score for me 2 points. Every week I don’t own him he hauls

      1. GOTHAM City F.C.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah, last week he was third on my bench. Would've been on bench again anyway.

    2. iL PiStOlErO

      Well what can't you do

    3. Freshy

      Go Vikings

  23. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    So the Wolves goal shouldnt even have been given. Another VAR mistake going against me.

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 13 days ago

      Why so?

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Casual VAR officials.

    3. Gobigorgohome
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      yes it was clear offiside.. Var is rediculous

  24. jtreble

    Baldock red miss.

  25. GreennRed

      Why would you sell Auba as a part of a - 8 before playing Norwich!?

    5. Here Comes The Son ★
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 13 days ago

      That is sick... some of you take things like this better than me. FPL can destroy my mood lol, I need to sort my schit out.

    6. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Auba still poor value.
