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.

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

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      It's not a bad option.

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

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

    2. Maddamotha
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Judging from the last few games, its decent.

    3. antis0cial
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months 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
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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)

  2. Maddamotha
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      A but Pope to Guaita

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

        Definitely an option im also considering.

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

          It just avoids the double up with Lund

      2. Maddamotha
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 9 months 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
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 9 months 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
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 9 months 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!

      Pulisic owner? 🙂
      I disagree about bojo...one of my crowning achievements is not being him.

    1. rubberdignerapids

  6. rubberdignerapids

    1 year, 9 months ago

    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

    0.1 itb 0 ft

    1. Tcheco

      Leicester have the best set of 3 fixtures in the league. Stick it on Vardy & enjoy

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years

      I would cpt Party. Watford are just bad. Great team btw.

    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

    0.1 itb, 1ft

    1. rubberdignerapids
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

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

  9. JenkoJunko
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Anyone know if there is pressers today or not?

    1. Christina.

        gotcha

  10. internal error
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

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

      What about other Chelsea assets? They did lose.

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

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

    2. rubberdignerapids
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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

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

    Martial to who?

    Already own: KDB, Mane, Maddi, Son

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

      Mane

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

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

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

      Money ITB?

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

        Only 0.1 unfortunately

    3. rubberdignerapids
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 9 months ago

        You read my thoughts mate, thanks

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Try with Zaha

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

      Alli, Pulisic, Zaha, Grealish.

  12. Dacra
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Certainly different but good

    2. rubberdignerapids
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

  13. Efan Ekoku Pops
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      tammy+Martial->Ings/Alli?

      1. Efan Ekoku Pops
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 9 months 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

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

        I just brought Hendo in lol

  14. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I'd expect a presser tomorrow

    2. OLLY G
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

  15. OLLY G
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    This GW only:

    (A) Guaita and Mount

    (B) Gazzinga and Zaha

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

      B

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

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

  16. teneighty
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      get Ings or Mouse

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

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

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

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

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

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

  17. Fit_to_drop
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 9 months 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

  18. Grounderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 9 months 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. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      Hang in there.. your players have good fixtures.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

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

        On the contrary, am considering moving Martial on.

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 9 months 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.

  19. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Kane -- Anyone?

    Disgusted at myself for bringing him in

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months 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
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

      1. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 9 months 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
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 9 months 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.

  20. I Member

    A) Pulisic

    Good morning lads.

    Is 44 good enough for LMS this week?

    1. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

      I thought 40 was the safety score

      1. Ógie

        Phew, nice one

        I thought I was doomed on Saturday,can't believe I made it this week. 🙂

  22. Klopp it
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    Two free transfer and 0 itb, need to take pope out and put henderson in but that leaves me 0.1 short, and i really dont wana change any other players in my team, any ideas?

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

    Bench, mcgovern, O'Connell
    Cathcart, Abraham

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

      Cathcart to Kelly?

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

      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?

  23. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

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

  24. Harper (No more Penandes)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Mount > Zaha?

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

      I would definitely. Form, fixtures, goal threat the lot

    2. Mahjongking
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 9 months ago

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

  25. HAMMERTIME107
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 9 months ago

    3rd defender to play in this team??

    A | Rico vs. Palace
    B | Kelly vs. Bournemouth
    C | Chambers vs. Brighton

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

    Button | Rico | Chambers | Kelly | Guendouzi

    1. Fit_to_drop

      Kelly

    2. YuvalFPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      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.

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

      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

      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.

      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
