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.

    5th time Wolves have finished 1-1 after EL action. Bizarre record but also really impressive when you look at previous EL sides.

        If there is no VaR Arsenal would have 10 points less.

      • Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Pereira and Fred again in midfield, my word.

        1. JustPark
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          60m Fred. Expecting him to control that mid.

        2. 1314
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          these two will get murdered by Spurs..need the midfielders to be back asap !

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            They'll get murdered by McGinn and Grealish! It's ok, only got KdB after Spurs too.

      • davies
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Lads...

        Just need Leicester/United wins to win $160 or cash out for $50?

        Other 2 legs were both draws for those games.

        1. BigBillyBass
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 12 days ago

          I’d cash out. Can see Utd dropping points today

          1. davies
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            I’d normally want them too as well

        2. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Cashing out is dumb unless you are playing with money you cant afford to lose

          1. davies
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            $5 stake 😆

        3. sunzip14
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          I'd wait until 60 min mark. Can see them at least take a lead first.

        4. Regin
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Don't cash out.

        5. Zlatanzo
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Rule number 1: never cash out

          • BigBillyBass
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            This was such an obvious cash out

        6. BigBillyBass
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Lacazette is such a tragically bad fpl option

          1. Syd.
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Hardly surprising

          So Mousset out scores Jiminez by 4. Nice 🙂

            7 months, 12 days ago

            Told you 1-1! Decent match, don't understand why Baldock wasn't sent off and given the balance of play in the second half I'd have fancied our chances against 10 men. Blades remind me of us last season, look very defensively solid

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Yh you did call it mate. I only watched til 55 cause stream wasn't working. We looked in control and had chances til then but radio sounded like you dominated. They said same regarding Baldock so happy with that one haha. Both still unbeaten, look forward to the reverse fixture 🙂 gg lad

            Brought in both, benched Mousset. Cant complain much, could have been worse. Mousset starts for me in the midweek games.

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Has to. Has to start next 4 for me unless injured

          3. Zlatanzo
              7 months, 12 days ago

              At least wait till the game's over.

            Cantwell 2nd on my bench. But I don't care. I don't intend to play him ever. If he keeps scoring points then it is good. Maintains or increases his value and I have a higher TV when it comes to the WC for the DGW.

            Zaha/Maddison. If you have extra itb, go for Alli or Son

                Yes, can see Villa scoring for sure. Chelsea were so bad defending set pieces yesterday.

              • 5 Years
              7 months, 12 days ago

              It wasnt, not easy keeping out Wolves but of course Lund has the advantage of playing as a mid.

              Can't really be dropping Lacazette before Brighton at home though I suppose - he is better at home, supposedly.

              Another fail and it's easy to get Mousset I guess.

                Just switch and be dine with it. He'll probbaly be benchrd next game the way its going for him
