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

      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
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days 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

        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 (Chopped…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Me neither.. No balance in that team

        2. TAT

          Who would want to manage Arsenal?

          1. Nightcrawler
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Plenty. Money talks

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 20 days ago

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

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

          Lundstram had a poor game

        8. Niho992
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Imagine paying 80 milions for Pepe.

          1. Wilshere Knowledge
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            He got a knock in training yesterday.

              • 4 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

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

              1. Wilshere Knowledge
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Give him a year.

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

            2. Niho992
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

            Leno is Arsenal's best player. In general.

              Leno very out of place in that defence.

          • TERIYAKI 69
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Lundstram and Pat blank done. Time for phase 2.

                1 month, 20 days ago

                Could have been 3 for arsenal too very easily

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

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

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