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.

        11 days, 21 hours ago

        I think I prefer Hendo, I might just keep Pope though.

        Anyone have some thoughts about Lacazette?

        1. ^Freedom Fighter^
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 21 hours ago

          Yes .. avoid Arsenal

          1. Nightcrawler
              11 days, 21 hours ago

              Poor advice. Auba looks like a top pick

                • 7 Years
                11 days, 21 hours ago

                Whatever ... I like Auba but you know at this price tag I expect more than that ... He's quality no doubt maybe with Emre out he will be better/back to form

          Having brought Lacazette in for Tammy would you keep him at least for at least Brighton and West Ham? Got 2 free transfers

          1. Regin
            • 2 Years
            11 days, 21 hours ago

            Yes. That's what I did. Except i got laca last week for pukki.

          Laca didnt score is greatest thing of the day !

        4. Bavarian
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 21 hours ago

          Which transfer to do first?
          A-Mount to Zaha
          B-Wilson to Tammy
          C-Pope to Hendersson

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            11 days, 21 hours ago

            Wilson to anyone.

        5. Tsparkes10

          Unbeaten away from home at Spurs, West ham, Bourne, Everton, Chelsea, Watford and Wolves. Who'd have thought 🙂

          1. Syd.
            • 10 Years

              Fluke side. Just another reading 06/07 hull 08/09 first season luck..Will go crashing back to championship lile them next in the 2nd season

                Imagine... Its annoying, he's so good at link up but just lacks the final touch. If he did then he'd be our Firmino :(.

                  Mcburnie looks like Kane to be honest he barely runs 😀

                    Hahaha I was hating on him until that goal vs man u. I reckon he'll come good, quite young but with the fixtures coming up he'll do a job hopefully

                  He got forward and put some nice balls in. Good asset to have mate, especially with upcoming fixtures

              Zaha assuming budget around same price. If cash in bank Alli

            Best OOP def for max 6.1, except from Lundstram?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Van Aanholt

            2. It’s gonna Ben Mee

              I’d go for the best defender for that budget and worry less about OOP

                Thanks! Willems at 4.6 a good alternative? Same points as Doherty and van Anholt

              Unfortunately no chance
              He's basically guaranteed to score 1, probably most likely 2

                Salah isn’t worth his price tag this season, means I’d have no player over the 10 m mark other than Kdb,l but wouldn’t have any issues captaining Son and Vardy

            Can anybody explain why arsenal penalty was retaken? Don't understand or agree with this stupid encroachment rule. Every single penalty, one or the other player encroaches ..

                Encroaching player cleared the ball. Retake. Quite simple

                If a “non encroaching” player clears the ball there would be no retake

              Keeping laca for Brighton at home, then transfer him out for Tammy. Got him in last week, was always a short term punt.

                Been a very good gameweek so far. with one exception....I chose the wrong captain. And I could be punished if Vardy scores big.

                  I pretty certainly chose wrong captain. I hope C Vardy does well for ne 😉
