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

    Is having both son and alli a viable strategy or is it too much spurs

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      It's not a bad option.

      1. rubberdignerapids
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I'd wait after the utd game though- contemplating those moves myself since Spurs attack look hot atm under Jose

    2. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Judging from the last few games, its decent.

    3. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I'm on it, it's a punt but Morinho seems to want to show he can set out attacking teams

    4. Fit_to_drop
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I though about it too but the difficulty is culling players to make way. Lots of prospects in this section including Zaha, Grealish and Cantwell (though lower end of budget)

    5. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      2FTs. 1.1ITB

      A) Pope to Hendo
      B) Greenwood to Mousset (who to bench tho?)
      C) Sterling to Son
      D) Save
      E) Smth else

      Pope
      TAA, Soy, Tomori, Lund
      Sterling, Mane, KDB, Mount
      Vardy, Jimenez

      Button, Dendo, Rico, Greenwood

      1. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        A but Pope to Guaita

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Definitely an option im also considering.

          1. antis0cial
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            It just avoids the double up with Lund

        2. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          But do you expect them to keep a CS against Bournemouth? An attacking team, while Pope might get many saves against City. Its a difficult one. I also dont like to double up, which I would if I got Hendo.

          1. antis0cial
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            It's more long term for me, if you look at the next ten games Guaita vs Pope, it's chalk and cheese. Hendo may do as well I just don't like the idea of a double up.

            1. Maddamotha
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 11 days ago

              Yeah horrible fixtures for Burnley to be fair, so I will probably get Hendo or Guaita. Leaning towards Guaita atm to avoid the double up. Cheers!

      Pope, Button

      TAA, Pereira, Lundstram, Cahill, Rico

      Mane, KdB, Maddison, Pulisic, Nakamba

      Vardy, Jimenez, Ings

      1. rubberdignerapids

      Bottomed on my first post in a while. Sorry for reposting

      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

      Bottomed.

      Had good week and now thinking of saving ft. Gtg?

      Or should I use ft on Pope to someone?

      Pope
      TAA Lund Soy
      Salah KdB Son Pulisic
      Vardy (C) Rash Mousset

      Button Dendo Rico Guilbert

      1. rubberdignerapids

        7 months, 11 days ago

        I'd think about Pope to Henderson- now looks like a good time esp as you have exact funds and Burnley's fixtures turn

        Bottomed also- need some advice 2 posts above cheers

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Thinking about it but still not convinced I should double up with Lundy. Shame that Guaita is too pricey.

    12. JenkoJunko

      Anyone know if there is pressers today or not?

          gotcha

      The Chelsea reporter for Football London gave Mount a 4/10 for his performance against West Ham

      1. BERGKOP
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        What about other Chelsea assets? They did lose.

        1. internal error
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Not great but Kepa and James were rated 7/10 and Pulisic 6/10

      2. rubberdignerapids
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 11 days ago

        he's been a litltle out of form of late- i'd consider shifting him for the miriad of similar priced options- zaha could be a good look with fixtures and form

    14. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Martial to who?

      Already own: KDB, Mane, Maddi, Son

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Mane

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Lol sorry I read that wrong. Pulisic or Alli maybe.

      2. BERGKOP
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Money ITB?

        1. ResultatFar
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Only 0.1 unfortunately

      3. rubberdignerapids
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Alli (if you have extra and stays longterm...although u have son so I;m not sure this is the week to double up)
        Pulisic (For the fixture and striker comments from lamps)
        Zaha (to save some mullah)

        1. ResultatFar
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          You read my thoughts mate, thanks

      4. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Try with Zaha

      5. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Alli, Pulisic, Zaha, Grealish.

    15. Dacra
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Hows this looking?

      Pope (Mcgovern)
      TAA - Tomori - Soy (Lund, Rico)
      Kdb - Salah - Zaha - Tielmans (Dendon)
      Kane - Vardy - Jiminez

      0ft
      0.5itb

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Certainly different but good

      2. rubberdignerapids
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 11 days ago

        decent for this gw although not sure Kane is worth it

        I'd monitor after the next couple of fixtures with him and would consider getting in one of Son/Alli instead and mayve going 3-5-2

      3. OLLY G
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Very good but not a lot to think about with no FT tho.

    16. Efan Ekoku Pops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Have 2 FTs and 0.0 ITB... also having a stinker of a season.

      GW 15: Salah + Pope > Son + Henderson
      GW 16: Martial > Alli

      Good moves?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        tammy+Martial->Ings/Alli?

        1. Efan Ekoku Pops
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Good shout. I've also thought about this one, could be a good use of the extra FT.

      2. OLLY G
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Yeah good. I'm airing on Guaita personally though. After 5 fixtures it kind of feels like Henderson ahould be ditched.

        1. rubberdignerapids
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          7 months, 11 days ago

          I just brought Hendo in lol

    17. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Does that Frank comment mean that there wont be another update from club before gw deadline on Tammy?

      Cant decide whether to:
      A) Play Tammy (tomori 1st sub)
      B) Bench Tammy (play tomori)
      C) Sell Tammy > Ings/Mousset

      Original plan was Pope to Hendo/Guaita

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I'd expect a presser tomorrow

      2. OLLY G
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I'm not sell Tammy personally. Seems very likely he'll be back at the weekend.

        I have same dilemma only with Mount and Tammy.

      3. antis0cial
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        A for now, still have a full day before deadline, might get some more info... maybe!

    18. OLLY G
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      This GW only:

      (A) Guaita and Mount

      (B) Gazzinga and Zaha

      1. theodosios
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        B

      2. Fit_to_drop
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Guaita is coming into great fixtures so i see him as a long term for 6-8 weeks

      3. teneighty
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        So, further news on Tammy seems unlikely before the games start.

        Would you sit tight, save FT and reassess for the weekend with this squad:

        Pope
        TAA - Soy - Lund
        KDB - Mané - Mount - Tielemans
        Kane - Vardy - Tammy*

        Subs: Cahill* - Hayden - Diop

        Or would you do Tammy to Mousset to get a starting XI without fodder and leave some money ITB to upgrade Mount next GW?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          get Ings or Mouse

          1. teneighty
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Cheers. He makes the team structure better and would solve the headache over Tammy's fitness.

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Keep Tammy. Diop out for Baldock. Double up on SHU this week?

          1. teneighty
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Baldock on 4 yellows though. I risk transferring in a future headache.

      4. Fit_to_drop
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Current team - In good shape but have a WC and held it until the Xmas period so ready to use it

          Pope Ryan
          TAA, Robbo, Lund, Smith, Kelly
          Mane, KDB, Cantwell, Perez, Pulisic
          Vardy, Jimmy, Tammy

          Don't plan on wholesale change but mulling over: Guaita/Schmichael, Son, Alli, Zaha, Grealish

        • Grounderz
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          All... extremely gutted about last Gameweek. Scored a measly 36 points only with this team, which I thought was a good team.

          Pope/ Button
          Chilwell/ Aurier/ Lundstram/ Diop*/ Rico*
          Salah/ Mane/ Martial*/ Mount*/ Cantwell
          Vardy/ Abraham/ Jimenez

            • 1 Year
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Lose Tammy or Mount, Pope can also go. Would leave Martial for Spurs.

            1. Grounderz
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 11 days ago

              On the contrary, am considering moving Martial on.

              1. iL PiStOlErO
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 11 days ago

                I have Rash and happy I chose him from Utd but still don’t know for how long he will stay. Spurs defence has problems, it can be goals in that game.

        • Grievez
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Kane -- Anyone?

          Disgusted at myself for bringing him in

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Actually you would expect it is a good move but this season he is just not same old dirty Harry.

          2. OLLY G
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            I would hold at this point tbh. Unless you don't have Vardy or Jiminez.

            1. Grievez
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 11 days ago

              Team is

              Pope McGovern
              TAA Lund Soy Aurier Montoya
              Mane KDB Maddison Pulisic Donk
              Vardy Greenwood Kane

              The transfers last week were sterling and Tammy to Pulisic and Kane -4. Had considered the straight swap to Ings, Mousset, Jiminez but stupidly stupidly stupidly I went with Kane and am regretting the decision big time now

          3. GreennRed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            He'll be grand. Sell him if he doesn't improve. Quite a good goalscorer when form hits.

          4. Fit_to_drop
              7 months, 11 days ago

              From the highlights i saw it looked like Son and Alli were tearing up the pitch and leaving Kane behind. Wouldn't buy him right now from what I have seen.

            Good morning lads.

            Is 44 good enough for LMS this week?

              I thought 40 was the safety score

            Pope
            Taa, lundstram, Pereira
            Kdb, maddison, mane, Pulisic, cantwell
            Ings, vardy

            Bench, mcgovern, O'Connell

              Cathcart to Kelly?

              If you want to do keeper move then O'Connell out for Kelly? (SHU triple up seems a bit extreme). Or same move with Cathcart?

            Anyone know has analysis been done in terms of clean sheets when there are multiple game weeks in one calendar week?

                Thinking about it but it will mean i wont have any chelsea players if abraham wont start

                  think your fixtures are the wrong way round.

                  I chose to play Lund over Kelly this week purely out of fear of a haul, despite feeling Kelly will get a CS.

                  Go with your gut.

                  Do you think abraham starts or not?

                    No

                    if available I think he might start, Chelsea could do with him after the Wham performance

                  has a date been given or forecast for the liverpool west ham rearrangement ? I have the first wildcard still available

                    Won't be this year. Maybe get a couple of Pool players and bench them for their missed game.

                  Who needs to go first, Boly or Pope?

                  Pope, Button
                  TAA, Chilwell, Lund, Kelly, Boly*
                  Mane, Son, KDB, Maddison, Mount
                  Vardy, Jimi, Greenwood

                  1. Fit_to_drop
                      7 months, 11 days ago

                      Assuming Boly is on the bench, Pope. Tough run ahead.

                        Agreed, I've been trying to get rid of Boly for weeks but its hard when he wouldn't be playing anyway. Lost me £0.2m keeping.

                    Did a Christmas clean up last night and brought Guaita in for Pope for Palaces lush fixture.

                    Guaita
                    TAA Lundstram Soyuncu Tomori
                    Salah KDB Maddison Mount
                    Vardy (c) Jimenez
                    (Pope / Cantwell Rico Abraham*)

                    G2G?
                    Should I captain someone else see as i'm 920k OR after a shocking start?

                      I lost 200k places this week with 35pt but will stick with Vardy otherwise will fall further behind

                        Ya good point. He's on fire too. I gambled on Salah captain so only lost 3 points but won't lie I was dreading it yesterday

                        I said yes to another Poster up above on Mount to Zaha. A green lighter.
