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.

    Time to swap Pope, who’s favourite?

    Hendo
    Guita
    Another

        Too many hotdogs

    2. Brosstan

      Hendo

    3. dunas_dog

      Henderson

    4. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

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

    5. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Hendo

    6. The Sociologist

      Don’t have a spare transfer after bringing in Son 🙁

  3. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Anyone have some thoughts about Lacazette?

    1. ^Freedom Fighter^
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Yes .. avoid Arsenal

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Poor advice. Auba looks like a top pick

        1. ^Freedom Fighter^
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 16 days 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

    2. Syd.

      Poor value.

  4. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

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

  5. Niho992
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Laca didnt score is greatest thing of the day !

  6. Bavarian
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Wilson to anyone.

  7. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 16 days ago

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

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Very solid team

    2. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Decent team Sheffield. You have been a joy to watch this season, kudos.

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      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

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year

        Lolololol

    4. Rainer
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Imagine if McGoldrick could finish...

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 16 days ago

        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 :(.

        1. ^Freedom Fighter^
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Mcburnie looks like Kane to be honest he barely runs 😀

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 16 days ago

            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

  8. Colonel Shoe 肝池
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    cantwell literally started scoring when i sold him 2 weeks ago......ridiculous

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      You are too slow. Sell faster, buy back even faster 😉

  9. Stoic
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    Whom are you getting for Pope ?

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Should be Hendo

  10. Holmes
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 16 days ago

    E. Stevens not looking exciting anymore... :/

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 16 days ago

      Guessing you didn't watch the game?

      1. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Nope, didnt find any link 😀

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 days ago

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

        2. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Won't be facing traore every week thank f haha

            • 6 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah, from Google commentary, it was all Traore 😀

    Who to replace Mount with?

    1. OneTreeTwoStars
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Mané

      • Bavarian
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Zaha

      • OneTreeTwoStars
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Sterling

        • dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

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

      • RamaJama
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 16 days ago

        Best OOP def for max 6.1, except from Lundstram?

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Van Aanholt

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

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

          1. RamaJama
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

            Agree

        3. syke63
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Doherty good today

        4. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          Not OOP but Aurier and Van Aanholt will do the job

          1. RamaJama
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 16 days ago

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

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              8 months, 16 days ago

      • syke63

        2nd week in a row Rico coming off my bench contributing a fat zero. Cheers, mate.

          You weren’t complaining a few weeks ago when getting all those points off the bench

      • arkom

        Auba essential!

        1. ZeBestee
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 16 days ago

          In all honesty, Arsenal did not play well at all.

        2. Regin
          • 3 Years

          Next week laca will haul.

              1. OneTreeTwoStars
                  8 months, 16 days ago

                  Brave - I have son and I’m considering getting Alli aswell

                    • 4 Years
                    8 months, 16 days ago

                    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

                8 months, 16 days ago

                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 ..

                    8 months, 16 days ago

                    Encroaching player cleared the ball. Retake. Quite simple

                  • OneTreeTwoStars
                      8 months, 16 days ago

                      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.

                      Unfortunately the hit from Abraham to jimi didn't work out.

                      Any transfer suggestions?

                      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 😉
