Scout Notes

Returns for De Bruyne and Sterling owners but doubts remain about City assets

NEWCASTLE 2-2 MANCHESTER CITY

  • Goals: Jetro Willems (£4.6m), Jonjo Shelvey (£5.0m) | Raheem Sterling (£11.9m), Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m)
  • Assists: Miguel Almiron (£5.8m), Christian Atsu (£5.4m) | David Silva (£7.6m)
  • Bonus: de Bruyne x3, Shelvey x2, Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) x1

A late Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m) stunner reminiscent of mid-90s Tony Yeboah almost stole all three points for Manchester City at Newcastle but, thanks to a long-range Jonjo Shelvey (£5.0m) equaliser, the champions have dropped vital points on Tyneside for the second time in 2019.

Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) put the visitors ahead after some scrappy in-box interplay with David Silva (£7.6m) resulted in a calm finish into the far corner past Martin Dubravka (£5.0m). He could easily have scored a second in stoppage time, his low volley bringing a good save from the Slovakian after a glorious pass from de Bruyne.

Amidst the emergence of some fantastic mid-priced midfielders and the Jose Mourinho-inspired rush to get Tottenham Hotspur assets, Sterling has been sold by over 600,000 managers since Gameweek 11.

Whether it’s frustration over his three preceding blank Gameweeks or the need to raise money, a lot of faith had been lost in the 24-year-old. Even this goal was out-performed by de Bruyne, who claimed three more bonus points.

What may still concern owners is that six of his eight league goals have come away from home and only one assist has been registered all season.

Sterling has 15+ goals and assists from both 2018-19 and 2017-18, so to have only set up one goal by Gameweek 14 is alarming. He is also one yellow card away from suspension.


De Bruyne had an unremarkable afternoon before his stunning strike, offering a consistent set-piece threat against a side known for their feebleness in such situations but was unable to create much in open play, apart from the occasional wayward shot.

The Belgian has scored in two successive matches, just as the assists have started to dry up. It would have been difficult to sustain the astonishing rate of ten assists in nine games, considering the seasonal Premier League record is 20, so his 40.4% ownership will be delighted to see him already on four goals. Until this season, he has never scored more than eight for Man City.

Newcastle quickly responded to Sterling’s goal via Jetro Willems (£4.6m) after being teed-up by Miguel Almiron (£5.8m), letting the ball run inside onto his right foot and firing home.

That means a remarkable nine of their 13 goals (69.2%) have come from defenders. The loanee from Eintracht Frankfurt has flown under the radar this season with his two goals and two assists and is owned by just 2% of Fantasy Premier League bosses.

Up next for the Magpies is a trip to Sheffield United, before facing Southampton, Burnley and Crystal Palace, making Willems an interesting differential at a time where not many reliable clean sheets options are emerging.

Pep Guardiola must be frustrated that his defence conceded to the side with the league’s lowest expected goals (xG) total of 10.71. Although their failure to keep clean sheets isn’t as bad as Liverpool’s, it is now four unsuccessful shut-outs in a row for a high-line back four that looks particularly vulnerable.

Hindsight says that failing to replace Vincent Kompany was a mistake, especially once Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) suffered a long-term knee injury against Brighton in Gameweek 4. It has forced Guardiola to fast-track with his plan to convert Fernandinho (£5.2m) into a centre-back, usually alongside the unconvincing John Stones (£5.3m) or Nicolas Otamendi (£5.1m).

Furthermore, his handling of Benjamin Mendy (£5.7m) suggests he is not impressed by the left-back and upcoming games against Burnley, Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester don’t offer much optimism.

Fernandinho was booked for a foul on Joelinton (£5.7m) but it was the pacy Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) who troubled City the most. The unpredictable but exciting Frenchman likes to bamboozle defences and caused occasional trouble for the also-quick Kyle Walker (£5.8m). St James’ Park was cold and quiet today but there was a buzz whenever Saint-Maximin received the ball.

Of course, the summer signing from Nice is still without a goal – just like Almiron – but his constant threat will pass the ‘eye test’ for managers looking for a cheap, rotation-proof differential. He limped off shortly before de Bruyne’s screamer but it looked purely precautionary.

Steve Bruce said of the French winger:

He’s sore. He had a sore one just before half-time but I’m sure he’ll be OK.

The thigh injury of Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) gave Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) a rare start, despite tallying an impressive 26 goals from his 39 previous league starts in England.

In truth, the Brazilian had a quiet game. He linked up quite well with both Sterling and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m), setting up half-chances along the way but, apart from a 68th-minute shot at Dubravka, produced very little threat to the well-drilled Newcastle defence.

David Silva is now the game’s fifth highest-scoring midfielder with 67 points, keeping things ticking over with another assist – his sixth of the season.

Before being replaced by Bernardo Silva (£7.9m), the former Valencia man chipped in an inviting cross to Jesus at the back post which just missed any sort of vital contact.

The Portuguese Silva was only given a place on the bench after his return from a one-match suspension, gained for a controversial tweet sent to teammate Mendy. His cameo began in the 69th minute and, within a few minutes, had already caused the Newcastle defence more problems than Mahrez did.

Reflecting on the game, Guardiola said:

It’s what we’ve lived the last four years. We found a way and today, we found it again but unfortunately, at the end, we conceded a goal.

We could not score all the chances we had; they scored the two chances they had. Sometimes it happens.

It’s the game we expected, solid, with ten players in the box, we played so well. We tried to win the game. Maybe they pushed a little bit, that situation didn’t happen too much. We played well and Dubravka made good saves. We arrived in front of the ball many times, unfortunately, we could not score.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dubravka; Manquillo, Clark, Fernandez, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin (Atsu 81’); Joelinton (Gayle 70’).

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Stones, Mendy; De Bruyne, Gundogan, D Silva (B Silva 69’); Mahrez (Foden 69’), Jesus (Rodri 84’), Sterling.

    The Christmas CLUSTERF**K GW 18-24
    I’ll preface this with acknowledging that fixtures are not the be all and end of FPL; fixture-proof-ness varies team to team and player to player, but fixtures DO matter as part of the equation, especially when the run is prolonged and involves 2/3rds of the average top team. Average ownership of LIV, LEI, CHE and SHU (Included due to the 45% ownership of the FPL phenomenon Lordstram) is now at around 7-8 first X1 players. Poor fixtures or blanks:

    LIV 18-24
    LEI 18-23
    CHE 18-24
    Lordstram 20-24.

    This is going to be old news for some who have already begun preparation or already own players that I’ll suggest (good for you!), so there’s no need to point this out to me. But as I’ve not really seen much discussion about this and since we are just 4 FTs away from GW18 I figured it was worth a mention right now. If you do value fixtures then THIS GW is the moment to begin planning.
    The players I’m looking to ship as we prepare for this period are: One of my two LIV defs, one of my two LEI defs, Mount and Ings (who has a similarly Black Christmas)

    Teams who cover this period well are MUN, MCI, TOT, AVL, NOR. Moves I’m mulling over are

    OUT : Robbo, Pereira, Mane (mulling, really MULLING!), Mount and Ings out
    IN: Alli, Kdb, Sterling, Rasford, PvA, Guilbert
    DON’T SELL: Mginn, Cantwell, Martial, Gazza

    Anyway, I’m sure it’s old news for many, but hopefully food for thought for some. Worth considering that may offer the opportunity to steal a march up the rankings above the modern-day casuals

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      I'm planning on transfering out my LIV LEI CHE assets with a WC in GW18. Could give a massive rankboost..

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      I've already gone from triple chelsea to triple spurs. Thats my prep done.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Already?

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Have you seen those two teams recently. Form swing as well

      2. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Which spurs assets you got mate?

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Aurier, Gazzanigga, Kane

          Not the best

          1. Houldsworth Hatter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Could still pay off though

    3. theodosios
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Why would you ship LEI players just because of 2 tough fixtures?

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        it's not 2 tough fixtures, it's two tough fixtures followed by 3/4 away games

        1. theodosios
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Palace put 2 past Burnley so I don't see any tough games(except MCI,LIV). Maybe Newcastle, but Foxes are top 3 team atm

        2. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Poor away, are they?

        3. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Away games are OK for us - breakaways with Vardy as spearhead

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Great post mate.
      Currently on Triple Pool & Leicester.
      Will go to double after this GW though.

      Mane Taa Vardy SOYUNCU will be the permanent fixtures in the team.

      To cover bad fixtures for Defense I'm going to bring Aurier in the team. 5th defender atm is Rico can be anyone (cheapest playing one)

      Re attack, i think those players are fixture proof

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        same here with the double triple up. Obviously I don't want to lose all of them, but i'm thinking it's just too much of a gamble to believe both these teams will sustain great pointscoring form throughout this period, especially when very appealing alternatives are presenting themselves. Would prefer a much more balanced approach where i own 3-4 than 6

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Liverpool’s fixtures from GW20-31 actually look very decent imo

      Leicester from GW20-24 are quite nice looking also

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        but lei from 18-24 is mci, LIV, then three away and one home fixture. In a short space of time. It's not a deep squad, those aren't good fixtures. I'm not saying they CAN'T do it, just do i really want all my eggs in that basket. It's worrying

        1. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          City conceding goals for fun, Pool don't do clean sheets this year. Not selling vardy but thanks for the input

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Of course i'm not selling Vardy, that would be bonkers!

            I'm talking about how many eggs we all have in the same slightly creaky looking basket

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Wouldn’t get too hung up on GW18 & 19 for Leicester.. worse teams than them are scoring for fun against Man City at the minute

          Their fixtures either side of that are still on the right side of the “good-to-bad-o meter” imo

          Certainly those 3 away games will hold absolutely no fear for them whatsoever - They’re all against teams that have smaller squads than them, and opposition will be terrified of their counters in all 3

          Those 3 away fixtures will be good points earners for Leicester imo, and supplemented by two nice enough homies vs WHM & SOU

          Be careful not to do anything hasty!

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            i'm not planning to trash my team, but i think undoing the double up on LIV and LEI defence, ridding Mount and Ings and investing in costlier mids and forwards from MUN and TOT could be the way forward to cover blanks and the worst of the fixtures

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Wouldn’t be a huge Pereira fan anyways as I think he’s regressed under Rodgers compared to under Puel, but unfortunately got the pre season price rise from his OOP privileges that he no longer gets under Rogers so he’s not a terrible sell anyways imo

              Liverpool double defence is a conundrum - at the minute I’m not even entertaining selling either of TAA, Robbo - there’s a double 20 pointer out there somewhere in the next 10 games & I’ll be damned if I’m going to miss it 🙂

              1. Tamagotchi Massacre
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 12 days ago

                Yer, that's what I've been saying for 14 games now

                1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  I actually tried to caution people after his double scoring GW’s that his attacking returns were less than half under Rodgers of what they were under Puel... alas, many still took the plunge 🙁

                  He’s still a decent FPL asset mind you, just better value elsewhere

      Time to improve bench

      Covered in a previous scout cast and a hot topic here as well, but I guess those two can easily be missed 😀

      I'm looking to make the LIV full-back => PVA move soon. No idea when (if before GW18), and no idea who to sell between Robbo and TAA, so I might end up staring GW18 in the face with anything from 0 hits to -8

      Chopping block for me: Madders, TAA, Robbo, Jimenez (GW19)
      Targets: Rashford, PVA, Guilbert, Alli (have Son), Grealish
      Keeping: Mane, Soy, Vardy, KDB, Pulisic (50:50), Lund, Son

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        apparently they can be easily missed. did they cover the convergance of awful fixtures or just liverpool/city contrasting runs?

          Joe talked about "two half-seasons" and trying to manipulate the current template's drastic change in fixtures on the scout cast, then there was a hot topic on that as well. There's no problem with bringing it up now, of course. Especially since, as you rightly said, this is the time to start targeting the fixture swings 🙂

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years

      Leicester on current form don’t have a bad game?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 12 days ago

        To be fair, they've been flat-track bullies under Rodgers

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Yep - and 8 of their next 10 fixtures are:

          EVE, avl, WAT, NOR, whm, new, SOU, bur, WHM

          I’m not personally having that as a bad fixture list for this Leicester team 🙂

          But I do identify with the spirit of what Tama is trying to do and it’s always good to challenge the herd mentality

          It’s just in this case the herd are (imvho!) going in the right direction 🙂

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            *9 of their next 11 actually 🙂

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Have to agree - they beat City in the league this time last year after all, and that was under Puel!

        Leicester are twice the team this time around & city are a relative shadow of themselves

        Of course, they’ll be huge underdogs & won’t be given much of a chance away to city by the bookies... but they’re such a good side - too many great FPL assets at great prices to let a tough on paper fixture or two act as red herrings...

        More than one way to skin an FPL cat though & some may feel more comfortable than me in divesting from them

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          I own two defenders so will be watching Johnny Evans like a hawk. Wes Morgan bless him is getting a bit long in the tooth

            Totally agree there - an Evans injury would hit them very hard, thankfully that was just cramp last timeout and not anything more sinister!

    Considering Pope + Martial > Schmeichel + Zaha (-4)

    Not liking the hit much but I'm bringing in two players who I'll keep for the rest of the year and a double on Leicester defense to steal a march over the next few weeks.

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Good transfers imo - Schmeichel & Zaha have loads going for them

      when does Ward return?

      1. sandman58

        Out until the New Year

          cheers good to know

          might do Aurier to Kelly, owning Aurier is like smashing your head against granite

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Aurier's been so close to massive scores the past 4 GWs... I'm keeping, he's relatively cheap and packs an assist/goal -threat.

            1. sandman58
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Close....but not close enough
              Kelly is 0.8 cheaper

              1. Bobby Digital
                • 2 Years
                7 months, 12 days ago

                Got both

          2. sandman58
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            I have Gazzaniga already
            Kelly allows more coin for big hitters and hes playin over xmas...important when we will need our benches through injury and rotation

          3. sandman58

            Ur welcome mate
            Good Luck

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years

      Had him since GW1 and he's been on the bench for all their cleanies except one :/

      no Vardy?

      salah out for anyone, get vardy with leftover cash

  15. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    My Willems 7 pointer staring at me from first on the bench.

    Can’t imagine Vardy, Maddison, Soy, Jimi or Lunds not playing so another benching fail 😆

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      not many people would play Willems vs City, not really a fail

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        You’re right. Fail is wrong word. Benching frustration then!

    2. dansmusen
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      I have Dunk on the bench but i will not call it a fail. Most people would bench so no big deal.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Yeh I guess. It’s the fact that I am on a rubbish GW score so every little helps!

        With Vardy not capped also {hides behind sofa}

        1. dansmusen
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Hehe in same dilemma. Mane C was a fail for me so hoping for a Vardy 2 pointer even if i have him.

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Same! Salah capper (had Mané also) 🙁

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Be happy you have him, some idiots in the world went for Lascells 🙁

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        There was sound logic at the time mate. Just unlucky how it’s turned out tbh

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

          Cheers mate 🙂

    4. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      would have been mad to start him, just unlucky

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Too much unlucky for me this season 😆

    5. Here Comes The Son ★
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Cresswell'ls 14 pointer staring at me. Close to 0% chance of him coming in for anybody. Feels schit doesnt it

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Ouch. That’s really annoying mate!

      2. Jurgen Flopp

        Same

  16. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Just thinking out loud:
    Pulisic Maddison Auba to Son Dele Tammy would be too much?

    Not for midweek, in like 2 weeks time

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

      decent move

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      is tammy fit?

      1. Atimis
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        In like 2 weeks

  17. Totti
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    who do u rather guys?

    A) ings son maddison
    B) ayew son alli
    C) mousset son alli
    D) kane pulisic zaha

    1. lindeg
      • 1 Year

      d

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      C is very tasty

  18. lindeg
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Kane essential in gw 19-21, will play all games.

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      i'm a kane owner but after yesterday performance i have a feeling that alli and son are more important
      he is going deep to midfield to free up space for alli and son
      and I think this was obvious

    2. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      So will Kante, McTominay and Ndidi. All essential

    3. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      don't agree - he is a troll

      yesterday was a classic example

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      No, Son & Alli double up.

  21. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year

    Sheff U Wolves predictions?

    2-1 SHU for me

    1. Liberate HK - antichinazi
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      1-1 Doherty G (Jimmy A) McGoldrick G (Fleck A)

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      hope so 🙂
      with lundstram goal and assit and jimmy goal 🙂
      fingers crossed

    3. Team Cruel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      If your 'predictions' were correct Sheffield would have had 14 wins from 14 and Lundstram would have been sold to the Conference in the summer

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

        Hahaha. Said 2-2 against Man U and a loss to Leicester ;). Others have been more wrong. But the Lundstram one, couldn't be happier to be wrong about something

    4. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Available on TV?

      1. Tsparkes10

  22. Pep Roulette

    Mount or Zaha? And why?

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      I think for form and fixtures has to be Zaha of those two

      I'm moving Mount to Maddison though, or possibly Grealish if he looks good today

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      for me zaha
      i didn't find any revenue from mount since 5 or 6 weeks ago

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Zaha, talisman for Palace.

  23. PascalCygan

    What would you do here?

    A) Connolly to Ings for free
    B) McGovern to keeper to rotate with Pope
    C) Hold FT

    Currently 1FT 1.5ITB

    Pope
    TAA Tomori Soyuncu Lundstram
    Mane KdB Pulisic Martial

    1. dansmusen

  26. fylde2022

    Looking to do this, as it stands.

    What are your thoughts?

    Martial & Abraham -> Son & Ings (FREE)

    Pope
    TAA Lundstram Robertson
    Son KDB Pulisic Mane Maddison
    Vardy Ings

    Button Rico Soyuncu Connolly

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      yes but
      i think leave martial against spurs
      and then get him against burnley

      1. fylde2022
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        I think Man Utd are poor.
        Spurs will wipe the floor, with them.

  27. ‘Tis the Season

    Kane, son or Alli? Who’s best to own for the short term?

    1. Effe
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Alli

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      i'm a kane owner
      but i think this is the order
      1) son
      2) alli
      3) kane

    3. LSK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Alli short term, Son long term would be my guess but any one of them can haul in any given game so depends how short term you mean.

    Double Pool defense owner here. Stick or sell TAA/Robbo?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Stick for now

    2. fylde2022
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Same here.
      Liverpool derby might bring the best out of them, next gw.
      I'm keeping.

    3. Effe
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Stick. One of them always seems to get attacking returns and they’re surely due a clean sheet some time soon.

  29. andres

    Pope

    Kelly, cantwell, Pieters 0.7 ITB 1FT

    1. LSK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good move. Shame he isn't 4.5 though.

  30. LSK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    How to improve this lot?

    Pope
    VVD, Lundstram, Soyuncu
    Salah, KDB, Mount, Martial
    Jesus, Jimenez, Vardy

    Button, Cantwell, Dunk, AWB

    0.2itb, 1 free transfer

    Thinking it's best to hold and then 2 of Jesus, Martial, Mount, AWB out for 2 of Tammy, Alli, Zaha, PVA (depending on midweek performances)

    1. fylde2022
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Salah for Mane, for starters.
      Mane is on better form and frees up cash.
