Pro Pundit Teams

Why the stats are becoming hard to ignore in the Pulisic v Mount debate

Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy looks ahead to Gameweek 15 in his latest Pro Pundits piece


I don’t like making late changes to my team – at that point, it all feels a bit rushed. Despite this I still found myself on Saturday morning chopping and changing between Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) and Sadio Mané (£12.2m) for captaincy, only to pick the wrong one.

It turned out to be a fairly average week, scoring 51 and seeing a 4,321 red arrow, down to 510,594.

Looking ahead to Gameweek 15 and I’m in that weird situation where I could transfer out one of three players or just make no transfer at all.

Nick Pope (£4.7m) has a bit of a fixture swing from this Gameweek, and not in a good way. Looking at the Season Ticker in the Members Area right up until Gameweek 30 (which is when I’ll start looking at using the second Wildcard), Burnley are second bottom in terms of fixture difficulty for defence.

I’m still reluctant to use a transfer on a goalkeeper however. The ceiling for points is fairly low and at just £4.7m he’s scored 55 points total, only five points behind current leaders Mathew Ryan (£4.8m) and Kasper Schmeichel (£5.3m). With the fixtures getting more difficult I would hope for an increase in save points to combat the likelihood of less clean sheets as well.

Mason Mount (£6.6m) is another player I’m looking at giving the boot to. He has just one assist to his name in the last six Gameweeks. There is a part of me that wants to give him the Aston Villa game, but that would definitely be the last-chance saloon.

If you compare Mount to Christian Pulisic (£7.5m) over the last six Gameweeks, there really is no competition: Pulisic has created more chances, registered more big chances and recorded more shots inside the box over the same period.

Despite all of this, it’s John Lundstram (£5.0m) that I’m looking to bring in (yes that’s correct, I still don’t own him).

It will be Harry Maguire (£5.3m) leaving my team to accommodate Lundstram. I have thought about keeping him, given that he’s nailed and has good goal threat, and instead transfer out Issa Diop (£4.5m), but that leaves a lot of money spread out over my defence, and would mean I don’t have enough flexibility for future transfers.

It’s been difficult to ignore Lundstram, and that is made even worse by their upcoming fixture run that includes Newcastle United, Norwich, Aston Villa, Brighton and Watford. Couple that with his 45.5% ownership and it’s hard to go any longer without him given the potential for clean sheets and attacking returns: he’s 12th for expected goals (xG) from open play in the last six Gameweeks for example.

As much as the fixtures look good for my team this week, I want to be more aggressive with my transfers in an attempt to get ahead of the curve. Lundstram doesn’t do that but he does provide a comfort blanket. That being said, after writing this article and looking at the stats for Pulisic, it’s difficult to ignore him with Villa up next. Maybe I’ll take my fourth hit in as many Gameweeks and just get it over with…

As for captaincy, that’s easy. I can’t look past Vardy at the moment and even though I bought Mané in under the guise of handing him the armband between Gameweeks 14-17, I think it’ll be the Englishman who becomes permanent captain now, at least for the next three weeks.

    Whom will you bench out of this lot?

    Mane Pulisic KDB Alli Maddison
    Vardy Jiminez Mousset

    1. Jullepuu
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Mousset

          Brought in Mousset just last gameweek and benched! Lost 9 points.

          Any reason for your decision?

          1. Regin

            7 months, 12 days ago

            u cant bench any of the other 7. that's why one of ur front 8 has to be a '2 point' man like hayden. so there is no confusion.

            1. ZeBestee
              • 5 Years

              Yeah, a headache I am happy to have atm. Cheers.

      I feel sad. Think I've already begun the grieving process for the 2020/21 reclassification of The Lord

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

        FPL will list him as a 6.5m mid before Man City sign him and he becomes an even better bargain.

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

          He's actually exactly what City need unironically

          1. No Professionals
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            He really isn't

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

          no way city will sign him. he is a great fpl player. but if he was a 6-6.5 mid this year, very few will have him.

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

        Lol

    3. Jullepuu
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Does Roy Hodgson actually have a history of rotating goal keepers? Is Guaita going to play every game?

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

          He does. Hennessey has started occasionally when Roy wants a keeper with more height.

          Another reason why Guaita is such a bad pick. I really don't understand why people are getting him. He's a 5.0m Crystal Palace goalie. For just 0.3m more you get Schmeichel who's the keeper for the best defense in the league.

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Really? I only remember Hennessey coming in when Guaita has had a knock which he does tend to get fairly often for a keeper iirc.

          2. Jullepuu
              7 months, 12 days ago

              If that is the case I'm probably better of sticking with Pope. Do you agree that if Guaita plays the next 5 he will get around 5 to 10 more points than Pope?

            • FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 12 days ago

              This Schmeichel definetely a better pick.

              Prefer Gazza/Hendo as they are cheaper though

          3. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 12 days ago

            You're overthinking, Guaita is first choice unless injured.

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

              He was benched last season tactically because Roy wanted more height from his keeper. I know because I got burnt by it >.

              1. Would Ed Woodward
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 12 days ago

                Yeah, just read above, interesting, thanks. I think I'm going Hendo instead anyway because I'm incredibly cheap and he could be an advantage over everyone starting Lund.

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

                  lol. more height. what an argument. i googled it.
                  guaita is 1.90m
                  hennessey is 1.98m

                  these 8 centimeters will cause rotation?

                  i think guaita is a good option even at 5.0 & would have got him in but i prioritised mount to pulisic this week

                  1. Jurgen Flopp
                    • 6 Years
                    7 months, 12 days ago

                    People are overthinking this. If you have Lund get Guaita. If not then Hendo. 0.3m more for Guaita is not going to break the bank.

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

                    That was what Roy said last season. Baffled me too. And screwed me out of my keeper cover for a blank GW that I was banking on.

                    1. Jullepuu
                        7 months, 12 days ago

                        It was the only game week though. Any reason why Hennessey was the starter for the first 16 games?

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

                  so in which matches are taller gk required? when the opposition has players who have more accurate shooting so the taller keeper can stretch longer? what a funny comment.

                  1. Jullepuu
                      7 months, 12 days ago

                      I believe that Hodgson played Hennessey over Guaita against Burnley at home

              2. Jullepuu
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  I looked more into this. Last year Hennessey played the first 16 games. Then he got injured and Guaita took the spot. After that Guaita has started all but 1 game if he has been fit.

                  I'm not really sure what to make of this. What do you guys think?

                Who would you bench for GW15 out of these 3 and why?

                A. Rashford vs TOT(H)
                B. Cantwell vs SOU(A)
                C. Djenepo vs NOR (H)

                  I dunno but it probably shouldn't be cantwell

                Horrid decision but 2 of these are going to have to go on the bench... who starts?

                A) Kane
                B) Martial
                C) Tomori

                  Kane has to play if you have him. A penalty and one good cross and he has a brace.

                3. Camzy

                  You must have someone better to bench. Tomori for sure but you can find someone better to bench than Kane or Martial.

                      Just read that, but played Lundy over Mousett twice & he has out scored Lundy.
                      Either way Tammy might not play.....?

                A) play Rico, roll over a free transfer
                B) buy Willems
                C) buy O'Connell (have lundy)

                My actual FPL team:

                Ryan - Pope
                akè - Pereira - Soyuncu - Lundstram - Tomori
                manè - sterling - kdb - hayden - cantwell

                FT:1
                ItB: 0.6

                how to upgrade my team?cut abraham?

                  Team is very inefficient.

                  Ryan-Pope is wasted value, you don't have a fodder defender so it's a headache every week, and you have no mid-price mids which is where the best value is.

                  WC still available? I'd use it now.

                      Start by buying TAA and Tottenham mids.

                      Sterling + Ake > Son + TAA will get you started. A long way to go though.

                  Looks like a longer one for Kun.

                Jose Mourinho believes using Dele Alli in an advanced role is getting the best out of him as he is more “comfortable” operating near the striker.
                Mourinho: 'For me Alli is not a midfield player. We want him associate with attacking players, thats his best position"
                Think that decides me to.bring in Alli for Mount instead of Pulisic

                  • 5 Years
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  Alli in great form, difficult ignoring him in this form.

                Best combo till gw19:

                A: Alli + Pulisic
                B: Alli + Maddison
                C: Alli + Zaha

                Son vs Alli. Why?

                  • 1 Year
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  Son. He just keeps giving. This season their main man.

                2. ZeBestee
                  • 5 Years
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  Alli is a big game player, and Son is their best player. Both on great form but Alli has more confidence.

                  Alli for me since he is cheaper.

                  I've gone Son just because I had the funds but it's 50/50, similar to Mane and Salah

                4. Bat Man
                  • 2 Years
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  Son, but I might go with both

                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  I've gone both, but if I had to choose, Son. He just seems more consistent.

                  Son, better player, more consistent

                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  Alli for me.
                  Think All is gonna keep getting better, whereas Son will regress.

                    Why would Son regres? Can't recall the last time he blanked in CL/PL

                  Son personally. Long run of good form. Haven't seen enough from alli to know it isn't new manager bounce.

                    The 1 million makes the difference at least for my team... And I also have Son. So might be better off not putting all my eggs in one basket

                Alrighty.

                1) Pope, TAA, Alli & Pulisic or
                2) Gazzaniga, Robbo, Son & Mount?

                  A for sure.. But with Hendo/Gazza over Pope

                How come the tweets on this site didnt mention a Guardiola or Lampard presser for today but we got updates on what they said (abt Pulisic, Aguero, etc) ?

                So their presser WAS today?

                1. diesel001
                  • 3 Years

                  Guardiola was mentioned for today (13.30).

                  Lampard's comments were not from a press conference. They were from Chelsea TV.

                  ... because that would mean we wont get any official update on Abraham tomorrow then.

                I will wait for news about Tammy but beside that, would you do Martial to Pulisic for a hit?
                First transfer was Sterling to Son.

                  Might get more rotation talk from that presser. Frank won't name the team though.

                7 months, 12 days ago

                Festive period differentials!

                At a time when a lot of squads are similar - are there any players you own or are considering that you think will shake things up a bit?

                For me, Auba has finally come good. He sits in over 20% of squads, but seems relatively unowned in FFScout circles - so his brace was a welcome points boost that has helped me climb my way up a couple of mini leagues.

                At just 5.1 million, and with great fixtures, Mousset looks a great pick right up until GW 19.

                As mentioned on the Scoutcast, I think Alli is going to continue to excel at no.10, the fixtures are a bit of a mixed bag - but he does look like a great pick to go with your turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day, when Spurs play Brighton at home - followed by Southampton and Norwich.

                I'm also definitely going to be making a move I should have made a long time ago - and switching McGinn for Grealish - who just looks sensational at the moment. McGinn is playing too deep for my liking, and Grealish is involved in everything good Villa do. With Southampton, Norwich, Watford and Burnley to come in GW 18-21, I'm hoping he stays under the 5% owned mark (currently in just 4.3% of squads)

                  7 months, 12 days ago

                  ... then it’s fine to wait for GW18 to bring in Grealish, right?

                  Will go for Zaha for now and prob make the switch for GW18, bitter and disappointed at how poor Zaha proved to be

                    I am debating bringing him in sooner - particularly if he scores this week.

                    Leicester at home and Sheffield United are two tricky games, but still fancy Villa to score at the moment, they are looking great going forward.

                    Such a confidence player and with 2 goals in 2 he should be flying high right now. Neat little price drop down to 6.6 too but equally annoyed he failed to deliver at the start of the season!

                    Too many value options this year = money in abundance ... for now!

                  Good stuff, GW18 will be massive, a lot of WCers that week.

                  I think Grealish will be a very popular GW18 move, I'm planning it.

                  Im personally thinking of Mount to Zaha (After CHE's AVL game), then Zaha to Grealish in GW18. Then using that cash to do Tammy to Rashford.

                  Rashford is also in free flowing form and has some great fixtures coming up after TOT and MCI.

                  Currently have differentials to most of Rashford, Auba, Schmeichel, Aurier (had for ages), Martial, Cantwell. Happy with this lot. Will get Grealish if he maintains form. Also Boldock one to watch.

                  Alli + Son might be a good differential. Or is it placing too much faith in the Mourinho team? Away games at Utd and Wolves wont be high scoring I suppose...

                  I've had Doherty and Harvey Barnes on board past couple of weeks. Just need a return or 2 from Barnes and I'll be happy. Tempted to captain Auba this week (had all season) but we shall see, Vardy's form makes this a difficult one.

                  I brought in Grealish last night for Perez. Sick of him being ripped off around the hour mark though he did have a couple of decent chances. I too own Aubameyang but worryingly his brace came from 2 shots in the whole game (let's not talk about how lucky we got with the penalty opportunity. That aside I do think the next 2 fixtures look very good on paper.

                  I'm happy Salah's ownership has dropped over the weeks. I'm looking at him for captaincy for the next 3 weeks (EVE, bou, WAT) He's currently down to 6th in the midfielders behind KDB, Mane, Sterling, Mount and Maddison.

                  I own Son but can't get myself to bring in Alli just yet. Though if he scores again United then I'll have to reconsider.

                  I currently have triple Liverpool with TAA and Robbo and even though clean sheets aren't there, I'm happy to hold and bench them in GW18. I may well bring Sterling in for Salah that week too as the Leicester game will be huge especially if they get 6 points from United and Arsenal.

                  Grealish, Zaha, Doherty, Alli are all firmly on my Christmas wish list.

                  Have had Auba and it is a relief that he is finally firing, just last night I brought in Alli and Mousset, hopefully great minds think alike....

                  Lacazette and Cantwell have been my recent diffs. Keeping both for the time being. Looking at Mount > Grealish some time soon

                  Moussa Djenepo.

                  Got him in for the Arsenal game which was a dud, but an assist this week gone and next four games v promising.

                  Sold Mount and Martial last night and brought in Alli and Grealish. They look very important for their respective teams going forward...

                  Rashford, Ings, Zaha, Alli, Aurier, Heaton over Xmas

                  Seems like a reasonable ditch of Auba, Abraham, Mount, Cantwell, Lowton, Button on my WC

                    Not really unbelievable considering his returns have been crap, costs over 12 million, and rival big hitters are producing, is it mate?

                  2 weeks ago I brought in Grealish, last week I brought in Mousset and JWP.

                  Am hoping for lots of rotation over the Xmas period (which normally doesn't happen as much as people expect) to make use of my strong bench, which for this gameweek is: Grealish, Rico, Abraham.

                  Don't talk to me about Auba...chose him over Vardy (when Jamie was 8.9) on WC and stuck by him until last week. Then he gets a brace. Where was this man all these weeks I owned him?!

                  I think Doherty comes back on the radar and also liked the look of Djenepo if he can stay fit/in the team.

                  Hey Az, good to see you post 🙂

                  I have Aubameyang too, and will keep for Brighton then reassess.

                  Richarlison and Martial have just become Alli and Zaha. Alli due to his form and prominent role and Zaha, who seems to be clicking just as Palace are about to go on an amazing fixture run.

                  Oh, and the plan is for Perez to become Grealish in GW18.

                Took a punt on Bats and it failed. Martial and Maddison blanks since coming in 2 weeks ago. Martial probably the bigger concern. Want Son.

                Any ideas?

                Would you do, Richarlison-> Alli for free? Already have Kane.

                  Yes but OT is a tricky game. Kane not sure if he has ever scored there. I'd sooner do Kane to Auba. In fact, I did

                Abraham has lost about 17% of his ownership but only dropped in price once.

                  10% used to be the threshold, so I'm not surprised. 20% drop needed...

                    Hopefully he holds out another day, gonna lose SV if he doesn't and need that presser.

                  the higher the owned, the more sales are required for price to drop.

                  the fewer owned, even few sales can cause price drop.

                Why, at 10.45 on sat morning did I do abraham to kane...

                Why, why, why?!?

                If you've got him now, you may as well give him a couple more weeks right? Could be a gem whilst everyone else is getting rotated?
