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.

    Zaha did score and Crystal do have a good fixture run.

    But apart from that goal (which was a big error from Pope rather than a well worked goal)
    im not convinced like many others around here.

    Id rather go defensively than to trust Crystal to score a few each game.

    Thoughts?

      Agree. It's why I'm leaning Grealish over Zaha currently.

      1. Free Hat
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Grealish is looking good indeed. Football wise.

    2. antis0cial

      I've brought him in on a WC as a punt (easy fix if not working out). He's the star man for (albeit a very poor attacking wise) Palace and they have a run of great fixtures, at 6.4 I think he is worth a go

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        This

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

      Agree. I rather keep an eye on him this GW.

    4. internal error
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I agree

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

      Did you watch the full match? I haven't yet so I don't know what his performance was like.
      From what I remember he is the type of player who once he hits form he usually goes on a good run of points

      1. Free Hat
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        No. Its not about him being a bad player or having bad performances.
        But viewing highlights of Crystal, there arent many goal scoring opportunities imo.

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

        Statistically, he didn't do much apart from the fortunate goal

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

      On form he's always an attacking threat and Palace's main attacking threat so with decent fixtures should get decent points plus a nice few baps.

    7. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      yes agree with u. not so convinced by zaha & crystal palace attacking as of now.
      it is worth getting in a defender or even guaita

  2. DENZ
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Suggestions would be appreciated, 2.9 itb, 1ft.
    Pope
    TAA Aurier Tomori
    Mane KDB Son Cantwell Mount
    Abraham Vardy
    (Button, Connoll , Rico, Hanley)

    A) Mount > Alli
    B) Connolly > Mousset

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

      A

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

        I also think it's the right move, the dilemma is if that Abraham is out!

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      mount to pulisic?

      doesnt look abraham will start so tammy to jimenez or ings?

      1. DENZ

        Cheers

  3. Bobby Digital

    So should I do the boring transfer of Salah -> Mané, or do you think the Egyptian will find some form?

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

      Hold for now

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

      I know what you are thinking but that is the worst possible transfer. Hold he will find form, Mane is also not in the best form.

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

        lol. mane not in form. he blanked one time. u should have done salah to mane weeks/ months ago. do it now. salah not looking right.

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

          You stick with Mane I ll stick with Salah and see you at the end of the season. Now it is irrelevant.

    Just watched MOTD2, smashing goal and performance by Grealish but those calf muscles...blimey!

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

      That's why he wears his socks round his ankles.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

      😆 Those calf muscles will get whacked

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        he got taken out around the calves 4 or 5 times at least by MUN defenders lol

  5. SOTHPAW
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Mousset or Ings?

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

      Mousset.

      1. Gooner Kebab
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Against the grain here lol

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

      Chocholate one

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        😆

    3. Fit_to_drop
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Me personally, I prefer the Mousset option. Ings has a great eye for goal but coming into busy season i see Mousset getting more game time

    its incredible how mike riley seems intent on taking the common sense aspect out of VAR that they use in the Champions league/other European leagues. is it just to be different? in europe they encourage linesmen not to put up their flag if they arent sure about an offiside so then it can be checked by VAR and they make the call . that way you dont have a flag affecting defenders or even the attacking players (that could have happened with ihenachos goal and cant say for sure it didnt effect Holgate. Personally I dont think it did but there will be soon be an occasion when it does). on top of that he has also encouraged refs not to use the monitors. why is this man in charge?

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      The PL are opposed to VAR IMO. They brought it in after everyone else and implemented it differently. It is because they want it to go wrong.

      1. boc610
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        certainly appears that way. they ultimately seem to view it as something that could potentially undermine an official and his job even though its really there to catch stuff that the human eye cant in those split seconds. In europe its seen as something to help a ref. thats the difference

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      in other leagues & bundesliga especially VAR is used perfectly i would say.
      PL not using it correctly. they are too stubborn.

    Prob not OK to ask this, buuut - Statwise Pulisic is way ahead of Zaha over the last four matches?

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

      But in last 2?

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

      Don't have the stats but Puli couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo at the weekend.

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        hah, lol. noted -

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

        In fairness did mighty in his run of games and Zaha was poor until two games ago. Different positions too.

        1. Typo
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          This is true. Any fear of a Puli rest?

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

        Without stats, I'd rather have Puli. Zaha not great and a Palace fan (Pingisimus?) was saying an hour or so ago that he has not been anything special of late despite recent returns.

      4. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Hahaha...

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

      No idea on the stats, but Zaha had Leicester, Chelsea, Liverpool and Burnley in last 4. His next four are Bournemouth, Watford, Brighton Newcastle. Pulisic does have decent fixtures too though.

      1. Typo
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Good point this.

        Mount is the one to go. And i can go up to 7.6.

        Both Pulisic and Zaha are diffs in my mini leagues. I trust Chelsea to get more goals over the christmas period, and I dont have Tammy anymore. I could ofcourse go Zaha now, and buy back Tammy when he returns.. hard one this.

        1. Le Bluff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Out of Pulisic and Zaha, I'd go Pulisic all day long.

          Looks like he can haul in any match. He's so direct, shoots a lot, and creates chances. Plays for a more attacking team also.

          1. Typo
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            Thank you, leaning towards Pulisic

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

          David Silva. I don't dislike him, he's magic, but sold him for Zaha.

          1. Typo
            • 6 Years

            Understandable. Would only want KDB from City atm.

  8. Sotamendi84

    start kelly (BOU) or tomori (AVL)?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Kelly

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kelly.

    4. antis0cial

      Tomori

    5. Fit_to_drop

      Kelly

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

      Kelly.

  9. HD7
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Best Gk-r for next 3-4 GWs?

    Kasper Hendo Guaita
    other?

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

      Hendo or even Kasper

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

      Hendo. Guiata if till next year.

      1. fr3d
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Don't think anyone plans to have a goalkeeper for 29 days

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

          Yes, not far off if you put it that way.

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I've gone with Henderson but may swap for Ryan in GW20 if all goes to plan (yes I know).

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

      Schmeichel easily.

  10. ONGO GABLOGIAN
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Does anyone know why Guiata didn't play against City and Arsenal in gameweek 9 and 10?

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

      Injured possibly.

    2. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      He's injury prone and Hennessey isn't far behind in the pecking order

  11. antoinehude
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Current team:

    Schmeichel
    Soyuncu / Tomori / Lundstram
    Pulisic / De Bruyne / Mané / Martial
    Vardy / Aubameyang / Abraham

    Button / Willems / Hanley / Cantwell

    For -4 I can do this move: OUT: Martial & Willems IN: Alli & Reid. What do you think?

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

      Rather do it for free before the weekend.

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

      Defence is weaker but thats a great team in attacking way. All major clubs are covered, like that you still have Auba, Tammy also. Hold on Martial for Spurs at least.

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

    Pope Button
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Tomori Rico
    Mane KdB Martial Son Pulisic
    Vardy Abraham Connolly

    0.0m

    I'm a bit stumped this week. I feel like I can just save here or start making some proactive moves that put me at risk of overmanaging (Ze_Austin I'm looking at you)

    1. Save
    2. Martial + Pope (-4) > Schmeichel + Grealish (gives me funds to consider Pulisic > Alli)
    3. Martial + Tomori (-4) > Reid (3.9m) + Alli

    What am I not considering? I don't really want to get rid of Abraham. Was hoping he was either ruled out or confirmed. I have a bad feeling he'll start on the bench and come on for the last few minutes. Ditching him also doesn't give many good options. Jimenez is super boring and uninspired and his good fixtures are running out. Ings is easily crocked and also losing good fixtures.

    1. Gooner Kebab
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Tammy to Rashford?

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

        No money. I have 7.6m. Can buy Jimenez or lower. And I don't like them. Frankly, I just want to keep Tammy.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      3 gameweeks ago I mentioned Zaha as an option & got him. You were one of the few who chose for than rather against this pick. Thank you Camzy 🙂 although I wonder why you aren't on the bus yet. I kept a sit for you already

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

        Considering it. But I'm now on Grealish more than Zaha. Better stats, better team. Zaha scored one lucky goal otherwise he was pretty anonymous. He's a good pick but not a great one.

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

      Ings has:

      NOR/new/WHAM/villa...nothing wrong with that

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

        Worth ditching Tammy for him? Ings is a good striker. Just worried about minutes.

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

          No idea, I bought Jimenez last wk for Tammy. Considering Ings in for Kane in order to finance Son.

    4. Sloopy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I would do 1. And option 3. next gameweek.

    5. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      now too late to sell tammy. if u wanted to sell u should have done it before gw14. i sold for ings & paid off but i am planning to get tammy in for lacazette maybe after gw15.

  13. KINGS
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Which looks like a better punt?

    A) Maddy + Grealish
    B) Zaha + James

      A

      A) and it's not close

    3. Regin

  15. lindeg
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Help please! 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, Aurier or Kelly for TAA and Mane in GW18.

    What do you think?

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

      Just fix one of Mount or James and see what happens. Rather have JWP than Djenepo.

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

        Cheers for the reply, i think they have similar attacking potential, but djenepo being 0.6m cheaper makes me more interested, especially for future funding of a big hitter like kane.

    Best replacement for Pope apart from Henderson.
    Don't want to double up on SHU, Lundy is enough.

    A. Guaita
    B. Gazza
    C. Ryan

      Why are you against the double-up? Sheff U have 3rd best defence in the league on current form.

    Martial to Zaha?

  21. Gunner Boy

    Martial > ?

    A- Pulisic
    B- Alli

    1. puhd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I’m thinking C

    2. Camzy

      Alli

    3. Istanbul 05

      From those options it's B

  22. iL PiStOlErO

    So what do you guys think about Salah? He is not in form but Mane is also not great. Pool has great fixtures on horizon and hockey cockey for Mane doesn’t make sense. Stick with one and pray they start hauling. Double defence is also great option but they are missing cs.

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

      If you're on Salah I'd just keep rather than trying to swap to Mane now. I wouldn't look to be bringing him in if I didn't have him.

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

        Thats the thing. I have to keep 12.2m and just pray he is the right one. Always planned to have him as a season keeper but this way is going to be a long season....

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Have both and will stick. Very disappointed neither got returns last gw. Made an arse of my gw. Oh well. Everton are utter dirt so I'd expect both to get something in that game.

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

        Wow thats a big sacrifice but if they both haul in same game you are the king. Can’t blame you but there are too many options and having 25m in pool attack is just too much. GL

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

      Take out both, without transferring them just comparison and see what kind of midfield you can have. Mane doing ok but not for that spend. Salah is woefully overpriced.

    4. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I've had TAA, VVD and Salah whole season... now thinking about Salah -> Mané for free.

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

        Worst transfer. I would stick with Salah or sell him for some other player/s. Lets hope he starts delivering big.

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          Yea Pool fixtures are great in the short-run... will prrobably get rid in GW18.

    5. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      "Mane is also not great"

      Eh?

      I made the switch on WC - not sure it's worth a normal transfer

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

        Meant that he is also not so much better then Mo. He has better season but don’t want to change Mo for him. Shame that Bobby isn’t returning

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

          this season & since start of 2019, mane has been much much better than salah.
          u r still thinking of salah's first season in liverpool when he was unbelievable.

    6. Regin
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      why is mane not great? he is the highest scoring midfielder! he has 4 double digit hauls, is consistent, rarely blanks, no injury issues like salah.

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

        All true. But I just think it is all in the past now. I meant he is not that better that makes me wanna change Mo for him imho. Next 5 gw Mo can have 3 double digits and no one would be surprised by that.

  23. TheDragon

    Will Lampard have a press conference tomorrow?

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

      Tomorrow is a bit too late, today would be great.

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

        He def doesn’t have one today does he?

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year

          Dont know to be honest

        I took the tweets to mean they were from Chelsea TV last night.

        FFS tweeted the manager press conference times for today starting at 9am and Lampard wasn’t one of them

      2. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Think they're post West Ham game.
        If there's any updates should show up below.

          That gives me more hope of him being fit - do you know if there is a press conference tomorrow?

    How the hell did this team get a GW rank of 6.1m?
    I blame VAR!

    Pope
    Taa / Robbo / Lundy
    Mane / Pulisi(C) / Tielemans / Mount
    Kane / Vardy / Jimenez
    (Henderson, McGinn, Rico, Janmaat)

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      No KDB and Pulisic(c) will do that to you.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        hindsight is great though...WHU were a shambles v Spurs!

    2. Hakim Ziyech

      The Maschine. You know this already

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 11 days ago

        + pulisic who isn't a nailed asset after that poor performance against villa

      2. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        I threw it in the Huangpu river this morning!

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 11 days ago

          😆 Lovely. I know you also smashed the sht out of it before ditching 😉

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 11 days ago

            covered in cuts and bruises but well worth it!

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I blame that midfield, especially Chelsea boys

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        Yup and David 'Proud as Punch' Martin giving the Hammers a lift!

    4. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      VVD has high ownership overall...

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 11 days ago

        yeah the VVD haul was huge

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 11 days ago

          I've got him and my team is very alive.. just being patient.

    5. dansmusen
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I had a GW rank of 2 m and still a green flagg. Lots of dead teams with VVD i guess

  25. The Wizard of Ozil
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    A) Pope -> Henderson

    Or

    B) Martial -> Zaha

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      B

  26. Regin
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    so lampard comments about tammy suggests to me he is unlikely to start this gw.
    Glad i sold him for ings.

    gonna now do mount to pulisic.

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

      Not sure when those comments are from (see above)

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      I think he'll play.

      - Lampard says Tammy is expected to get outside and train, good sign
      - Got two days to prove his fitness, I'd guess if he shows enough in half a session he'll be in
      - They got beat at the weekend, need to bounce back and he's their main striker
      - He'll be eager to prove his fitness to play Villa where he spent last season on loan
      - It was only a bruised hip

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

        i think he ll come off the bench

  27. Rains of Castamere
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Which keeper to get for the foreseeable?

    A - Henderson (4.7)
    B - Guaita (5.0)

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

      Would expect them to perform similarly, so Hendo for value

    2. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 11 days ago

      mccarthy also a shout

  28. claretparrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    With 2 FT and no immediate fires to fight (holding Tammy)...

    Pope to Hendo?

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 11 days ago

      Similar situation to me. 2FT and nothing major to do so just gonna upgrade Ryan. I think I'll go Hendo - they seem more defensively sound than Palace but the stats might not back that up.

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

        Yeah seems solid logic. Thanks!

  29. Weerman
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Hi guys, pretty pleased with the team right now, although Mount is becoming a concern. Any obvious moves?

    Ryan
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    Mané KDB Son Mount Traoré
    Vardy Jesus

    Button Rico Willems Connolly
    1FT, 0.5 itb

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

      ryan -> hendo/guaita/mccarthy

  30. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 11 days ago

    Reading that it might be a good idea to get rid of Kane and bring Alli in?

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

      would hold kane through fixtures, only super nailed striker with vardy
