FPL Gameweek 14 review: what we learned from the weekend’s matches

Almost exactly 48 hours separate the completion of Gameweek 14 with the deadline for Gameweek 15, so the quick turnaround means we are unable to bring you individual Scout Notes on all ten Premier League matches that took place this weekend.

You can read about how Liverpool and Manchester City assets got on in their respective fixtures on Saturday by clicking the links below, however.

MATCH REPORT: Liverpool 2-1 Brighton and Hove Albion
MATCH REPORT: Newcastle United 2-2 Manchester City

For the other eight matches, we have produced this cover-all article that addresses some of the main talking points from the Gameweek just gone and delves into the stand-out stats from our Members Area.

    Thoughts on the below?

    Pope
    TAA Lund Soy
    Mane KDB Son Pulisic Maddison
    Vardy (c) Mousset

    Button Rico Janmaat (!) Tammy (!) (1FT 1.5m itb)

    A) Pope -> Guaita
    B) Janmaat -> Aurier/Willems/Tomori (benching headache)
    C) Tammy -> Jimenez
    D) Save
    E) Other

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B. Aurier? Think Spurs def will settle down eventually or Willems as perma-bench player.

    2. fantasyfog
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      aurier just for attacking returns, if they start keeping cleanies too you're in business

    3. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A, if you do B you're probably not gonna play whoever comes in.

  2. Wild Rover

    It's hard to read anything other than Tammy won't be even near fit for Wednesday from Lampard's comment

    1. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Genuine question, how are you reaching that conclusion? Maybe it's more hopeful from me, but the fact that he'll at least be out training is a very good sign, no?

      1. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        He said they hope to get him out on the grass over the next couple of days. If he's only hoping to get him out on the grass how can he even be near to playing?

        1. james 101
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Maybe he meant the other”on the grass”?

          Just chilling, smoking up, you know?

          Could be he’s fine and just needs to take it easy for a couple before exploding into action again...

      2. theodosios
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Where did u read he will be in training?

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          This is what he actually said. Nothing about training.

          "We will find out more today and tomorrow. He needs to get outside and move a little bit outside over the next two days."

          1. theodosios
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            I asked Le Bluff

            1. Wild Rover
              • 11 Years
              1 year, 9 months ago

              I know

          2. james 101
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            Oh. Ok. Maybe not then. My bad.

        2. Le Bluff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Sorry, maybe I've misinterpreted what Lampard said. But I've taken that as assuming that he WILL be back out and moving, and will be assessed from there.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            'moving a little bit outside' sounds a long way off being fit to play

    2. theodosios
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Thinking the same and now I regret didn't transfer him out last GW...

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Boom
      Getting Ingsy last GW turned out to be really nice call then on my end

      1. Le Bluff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Nice! Brought Ings in too but for Connolly. Had Cantwell off my bench for Tammy and may be the same again if he's ruled out.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Well done

      2. fantasyfog
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        ballsy and it paid off, well played

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Thanks

    4. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Difficult one to call. I kept Tammy Hopi g he’s recover quickly. It worked out ok as I’d have transferred in Ings (9 points) and benched Cantwell (8 points). As it was I played Cantwell.

      1. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I sold him for Ings but benched Mousset

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I read it as maybe ok for Saturday (NB I have kept).

    6. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Held Tammy at the weekend with Cantwell first sub. Will hold again with Kelly first sub. No drama - if I got rid I'd only want to get him back anyway.

  3. Energetics
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Pope
    TAA Robertson Lundy
    Mane KDB Pulisic Martial
    Vardy Jiminez Ings

    Button Soyuncu Cantwell Rico

    A: Martial to Alli
    B: Martial to Grealish
    C: Martial to Zaha
    D: Pope to Henderson

    B: Martial

    1. Energetics
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Could bench Grealish this week but have him for when fixtures turn including that difficult GW18

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Like the look of Grealish. Who would you start this week?

    3. TikiTakki
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I just did Martial to Alli to beat price changes.
      So A.

  4. HD7
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    0.8 M ITB

    Schmeichel
    Robertson | TAA | Lundstram
    Mane | KDB | Maddison | Pulisic
    Vardy | Ings | Jimenez

    Button | Willems | Rico | Hayden

    What should be my next move/s in the next weeks, mates?

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Improve Rico maybe or Hayden?

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Relax and see what happens.

  5. aleksios
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Next move here? 1 ft 2.9itb.

    --Pope
    --TAA--Lund--Soy--Tomori
    --Mane--KDB--Mount--Madds
    --Jimenez--Vardy

    ---Stekel--Tammy--Rico--Cantwell.

    a) Rico to PVA.
    b) Mount to Alli.
    c) Pope to Henderson.
    d) Something else?

    Thanks guys.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B

    2. TikiTakki
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Mount or Maddinson to Alli I'd say.

  6. TikiTakki
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 9 months ago

    First time posting on here... any changes you would recommend?

    Pope
    TAA Robertson Lundstram Soyuncu (Kelly)
    Alli Maddison Mane (Cantwell) (Chong)
    Aube Vardy Jimenez

    Looks like Aube finally delivering some value... I plan on shipping him out after West Ham away for either Mousset or Rashford.....
    Plan to ship in KDB or sterling for GW 18 onward.

    1. aleksios
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Good team.Save.Or Pope to anyone.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Save. Do something about Chong if you need to do some deckchair shuffling.

    3. fantasyfog
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      you may want to keep auba by then

      1. TikiTakki
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 9 months ago

        yeah maybe. Despite their defensive shortcomings, Arsenal looked very dangerous in attack yesterday (from the first half I watched at least)..

        Aub could prove to be a big differential as most people have lost patience with him by now

  7. Party time
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Van Dijk would win the Balon d'or tonight

    Remember this

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      more like CR7

  8. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    GTG guys, playing 3-5-2? £1.5M ITB

    Ryan
    TAA Lundstram Soyuncu
    Mane KDB Pulisic Maddison Grealish
    Vardy [C] Rashford

    Gazza Ayew Aurier Rico

    1. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Gtg!

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Thx

  9. ResultatFar
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Would you transfer Martial to Pulisic this week or hold?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I've got Rashford and happier than having him but United keep concerning ... may transfer him out next week

  10. Kabayan
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Need your suggestion.
    Still have Mount.
    A. Play Soy and Mount and save FT
    Or
    B. Douglas to Pulisic and bench Soy/Mount

  11. danlynch13
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Who would you prefer to own long term?

    A) Pulisic
    B) Abraham

    1. fantasyfog
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      tough call that

    2. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Hard to say I think B but I got Pulisic in last week and Abraham out so I'm happy to just keep A on the long term

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Stats for both of them are good ... would consider having both. Abraham ownership could kill the rank when he's up to speed. Although Pulisic could follow if he scored points well next few.

    4. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      B

  12. JenkoJunko
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Morning all! Help with the below as not sure what to do:

    Squad:
    Button Pope
    Rico Soy VVD Lund Tomori
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount Dendoc
    Vardy Ings Jiminez
    2FT
    0.2 IB

    Maybe:
    A. Mount to Zaha and roll 1FT
    B. Mount / Tomori / VVD to Zaha / Kelly / TAA - 4
    C Something i've missed?!?!?!?

    1. cigan
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Pope to Henderson?

      1. JenkoJunko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        I did consider a keeper move but its just so booooring!! haha. but yeah fair shout.

        1. cigan
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          boring wins points tho! i'm firmly in the "don't fix if it ain't wrong" camp ha
          would look at moving Mount too but not sold on Zaha

          1. JenkoJunko
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 9 months ago

            totally agree! That approach so far this season has done me well! I've been far less punty as last season haha. Yeah Mount needs to go for me but Zaha is very punty!!! But i just cant really justify get rid of anyone else to help upgrade mount... Tomori maybe....

            1. cigan
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 9 months ago

              might be worth looking at Sterling

  13. theodosios
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    What to do with Abraham now? I made huge mistake for not transferring him out and I'm now without FT and with 1.1m ITB..
    Ings, Ayew, Mousset, maybe Pukki?

    1. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      For a hit? Would keep than and hope he's back at the weekend? How does your bench look?

      1. theodosios
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        For a hit, but I'm not too optimistic about his return...

        1. Tshelby
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          I would keep.

      2. theodosios
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Have Traore for this GW, but for next one I don't know what to do...it may be best to pretend to be dead 🙂

        1. Tshelby
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 9 months ago

          Wait till the next gameweek and if Tammy is still out you can swap him for free?

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Think it's too late to bin him now, everyone seems to have a good bench.

    3. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Wouldn't say that's a huge mistake. Just hindsight.

      Deal with it now. Ings.

    4. lindeg
      • 2 Years

      hoooooooooold

  14. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    I feel like I need Son long-term but I'm not sure how to best make way for him.. Who to bin (for the weekend, not midweek)

    A) Tammy and move to a 3-5-2
    B) Pulisic
    C) Maddison

  15. tc93
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Quick 1 or 2 guys! 2 FTs.

    1) Mount +Abraham —> son+greenwood (I’ll switch to a 442)
    2) Abraham + mount —> mousset + pulisic

    Rest of Team:
    Pope
    Soy / TAA / Robbo (Rico, Lund)
    Maddison / KDB / Mount* / Mane (Cantwell)
    Abraham* / Vardy / Jimi

  16. CR7 is Home

    Do u guys think illeanacho cud get a start next game?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Don't think so

    2. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      No.

  17. Long ago I drew a walrus
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Exact money to do Mount to Zaha. Any thoughts?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I'm looking at Zaha as a set and forget option with that fixure-run.

  18. lindeg
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Someone tell me this plan is good!

    1FT, 1.2ITB

    Gazza, Ryan

    TAA, Tomori, Aurier, Lunds, Kelly

    Mane, KDB, Mount, D. James, Saka

    Jesus, Vardy, Jimenez

    D. James -> Djenepo this GW
    Jesus -> Abraham when fit again, likely GW16
    Jimenez -> Kane in GW19 when Wolves fixtures swing

    Also leaves me decent options in Djenepo and Kelly for TAA and Mane in GW18.

    What do you think?

  19. tc93
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    (Soz repost- missed off 3rd option)

    Need some help... such a hard choice! Which one to go for?? 2 FTs

    1) Mount +Abraham —> son+greenwood (I’ll switch to a 442)
    2) Abraham + mount —> mousset + pulisic
    3) Abraham + Mount —> Mousset + Ali

    Rest of Team:
    Pope
    Soy / TAA / Robbo (Rico, Lund)
    Maddison / KDB / Mount* / Mane (Cantwell)
    Abraham* / Vardy / Jimi

  20. HAMMERTIME107

    How does this look please? Help appreciated!

    Henderson
    Tomori | Soyuncu | Rico
    Mane | Son | De-Bruyne | Pulisic
    Aubameyang | Mousset | Vardy

    Button | Kelly | Chambers | Guendouzi

    1. lindeg
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      would play kelly over rico

      1. lindeg
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        otherwise looks good

  21. Pieterke30
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Ings, Mousset, Zaha, Pulisic, Alli, Maddison, Jimenez, Lundstram, Soyuncu,... with so many good and (very) cheap options, it’s almost impossible to avoid benching headaches, isnt it?

    Im very close to that team, which I feel is very good - but the benching headaches, my oh my!

    Henderson
    TAA Soy Lundstram Robbo (Guilbert)
    Mané Alli Son Pulisic Zaha
    Vardy Jimenez Mousset (or Ings)

    We cant play 4-5-3, can we?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Especially since all of them have good fixtures

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        Yep

    2. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Don't think that bench headaches are a bad thing with christmas around the corner. I'm benching Soyuncu this gw it doesn't feel good but it means I have 10 players with a better fixture which is lovely.

    Thoughts on these moves?

    Martial & Tomori > Alli & Kelly -4 gives team below or;

    Pope > Hendo, keep Pope & Button > Martin?

    Pope
    Lundstram, Trent, Soy
    Mane, KDB, Son, Alli
    Tammy, C Vardy, Mousett

    Button, Maddy, Kelly, Rico

      I'm tempted to side with Guaita to avoid S.Utd defensive double up.

    Not captaining Vardy has cost me rank slips of late...do I move the armband to him or keep the squad as is for tomorrow?

    Henderson
    TAA / Lund / Soy
    Pulisi(c) / Mane / Salah / KDB / Madds
    Vardy / Jimenez

    Subs: Button / Rico / Janmaat / Greenwood

    0.1 itb 0 ft

      I'd cpt Vardy. I'm in same boat though, team doing well, captain blanked last 3 Sterling then Mane so I'm sure Vardy will now blank 🙂

        cheers I'll switch to vardeh given form and fixtures- I suppose Mane/Salah is enough of a differential to set my team aside from my rivals
