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.

    Wolves pushing for a winner. They seem a real 2nd half team.

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

      They weren't last GW vs Bournemouth!

        I've watched them maybe 3 times this season, always been much better in the 2nd half when I've seen them. Hoping for a Jimi winner here!

          Almost brought him in, but didn't. Didn't want to take a hit.

          in fact, any move I considered but didn't go through with, would have paid off this weekend…

    Cantwell and Kelly are great 3rd&4th sub, we think ?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      3rd and 4th? I assume you're including a keeper in that then.

      Rn Kelly is my first sub lol. Then Dendo (could be Cantwell) then Rico

      1. Orion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah, including a keeper 🙂

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not sure Kelly is nailed tbh

      1. Orion
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah I know... But I can’t reach out for a nailed one for up to 4.2... C. Taylor maybe???

      His purple patch has ended but I'm still playing him in "easy" games of which there are aplenty in the near future

    Arsenal need to hire whichever manager that can look at this group of players and see a team and formation.

    I can't

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Me neither.. No balance in that team

    2. TAT
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Who would want to manage Arsenal?

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

        Plenty. Money talks

        1. TAT
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          No manager who would be able to turn things around. Arsenal are a mid-table team now.

  10. Collie01

    Jota miss under pressure

  12. Miniboss

    Arsenal about to crumble

    1. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Mmmm...

      Crumble

  13. tucaoneo

    I'm happy I kept Tammy and started Todd.

    1. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I did exactly the same.

    2. FPLGeezer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Same and also had Cantwells points off th bench to replace Salah last week! Been needing some luck this season!

    3. Liberate HK - antichinazi
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      same

  14. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Lundstram had a poor game

  15. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Imagine paying 80 milions for Pepe.

    1. Wilshere Knowledge
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      He got a knock in training yesterday.

      1. Team Cruel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        So that means Arsenal didn't have to pay 80 millions for him?

        1. Wilshere Knowledge
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Give him a year.

          Pulisic wasn’t starting, Fabinho was being benched initially, And countless other successes.

      2. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah thats reason why is he sh*t

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I can't imagine 80 million.

    3. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Or 60m for Fred.

  16. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

      Ooooher

  21. Deulofail
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Leno is Arsenal's best player. In general.

    1. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Followed by Martinez

      1. Ode
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Emi Martinez?

        1. Deulofail
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Yeah. Martinez from Arsenal.

          1. Ode
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Lol okay

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Leno very out of place in that defence.

  22. Sir Alex Telles.
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Lundstram and Pat blank done. Time for phase 2.

  23. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Happy with the point. Could've easy gone either way :/, still unbeaten away from home

  24. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    2 points dropped by Norwich.

    1. dark91
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      1 point earned by Leno

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

      Could have been 3 for arsenal too very easily

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

    Well I got undeserved luck. Fuming at Tierney not starting, but getting Cantwell off the bench

  26. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Get in the effing bin Lacazette. Trashhh mate.

    Dunno why I paid a premium over Mousset for that rubbish

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I’m not sure playing FPL is healthy for you

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        In general.

  27. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Lundstram haul denied by corrupt VAR officials in the Wolves game.. Big team bias is disgusting.

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      And there’s me thinking it only favoured Liverpool

  28. JustPark
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Man United to bottle 3-0 lead today and somehow a surprise win against Spurs few days later.

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Impossible

  29. drughi
