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.

  11. Niho992

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

  12. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Pereira and Fred again in midfield, my word.

    1. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      60m Fred. Expecting him to control that mid.

    2. 1314
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 1 day ago

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

  13. davies
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 1 day 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
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        I’d normally want them too as well

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        $5 stake 😆

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

    4. Regin
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Don't cash out.

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Rule number 1: never cash out

    6. BigBillyBass
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      This was such an obvious cash out

  14. BigBillyBass
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Lacazette is such a tragically bad fpl option

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Hardly surprising

      He does play for Arsenal

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 1 day ago

        So does auba

        1. Syd.
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          What a legend

  15. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    So Mousset out scores Jiminez by 4. Nice 🙂

    1. Bossworld
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day 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
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 1 day 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

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Mousse is sweeeeeet

    3. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

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

        1. ZeBestee
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Cheers.

  16. Pep Roulette

    Best replacement for Martial?

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years

      Cardboard cut out

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Joining Sheffield.

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      At least wait till the game's over.

  17. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    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.

    1. Regin
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Dumb comment

  18. Miniboss

    • 1 Year

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

  19. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Inter go top in Serie A. Conte doing great job!

  20. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Wasn’t punished but Tomori ahead of Lundstram was very stupid. Lucky!

    1. Niho992
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah me too..

      You re benching Tomori next GW?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

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

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Casuals saved by VAR incompetence again

        Casuals usually play better than you?

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        😛

    4. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      I can top that. Somehow played Dendoncker before Lundstram! Went to a wedding for the weekend with no reception, so couldn't see my team at all.

  21. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Let s go Tony Marshall

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Gud thing for him is Villa don't usually setup to park the bus

    2. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Given he cost £132,000,000 he needs to deliver

  22. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Massive match for the Top 10k coming up now.

    Template top 10k has Soyuncu, Maddison and Vardy(c).

  23. dark91
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Silva back to Watford

      1. dark91
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Looks like Chris Hughton is going to Watford. So Silva better make sure he keeps his job

  24. Tsparkes10

    2. Syd.

      They already hauled once this season - are the hauls are over?

      GW7: Pereira - 13pts
      GW10: Chilwell - 19pts

  25. Oggle22
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Here we are again a week that promised so much needing Vardy(C) Tilimens and Martial to save my game week

  26. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    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.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

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

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      You keep Laca. He gets a brace next and u are back to square 1.

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      again Lacazette? 😛

  27. seewhyaxe
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    martial haul would be a sweet parting gift

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah, but if he does extremely well I am keeping. Spurs defence next.

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year

        This

    2. Ashante'Kotoko
      • 8 Years
