Ings scores again as Pukki continues recent revival

Southampton 2-1 Norwich City

Goals: Danny Ings (£6.2m), Ryan Bertrand (£4.8m) | Teemu Pukki (£6.6m)

Assists: James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m), Shane Long (£4.6m) | Alex Tettey (£4.5m)

Bonus Points: Ings x3, Pukki x2, Tetty x1

Danny Ings‘ (£6.2m) incredible scoring run was extended once again on Wednesday night as he found the net in Southampton’s 2-1 win over Norwich.

The former Liverpool and Burnley man simply won’t stop offering value to his ever-increasing ownership, which has practically doubled in the space of the last seven days.

Ings’ current goal-scoring tally for the season now stands at eight with seven of those coming in the last nine league matches.

Since Gameweek 7, Jamie Vardy (£9.9m), with a total of 11, is the only forward to have scored more times than Ings’ seven.

Long and Ings were Southampton’s front-pairing in Gameweek 15

Thankfully for the Southampton man, the appealing fixtures keep on coming with Newcastle (away), West Ham (home) and Aston Villa (away) their next three opponents. Gameweek 16 takes the Saints to St James’ Park, where the Magpies have not kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 8, conceding in each of their last three matches there.

Encouragingly, Ings could have netted himself a brace in Gameweek 15. His latest goal was a quality flicked header from a James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m) free-kick and there were plenty of chances for further returns.

In the second half, he brought a flick-on from Nathan Redmond (£6.2m) down with his shoulder and rifled an effort just past the far post.

Either way, this was another game which confirmed Ings as the main option worth considering from Southampton’s attack ahead of their ongoing appealing schedule.

The Saints have scored 11 times since Gameweek 7, with Ings involved in seven of them, equating to 63.6% of them.

Ward-Prowse has been quietly notching up attacking returns recently

There is every chance that Ward-Prowse may creep into consideration now that he has three goals and one assist in the last five matches, largely thanks to his role in set pieces.

It was these dead-ball situations that were the undoing of Norwich’s defence on Wednesday night.

Since the return of Christoph Zimmermann (£4.4m) in Gameweek 13, the Canaries have looked less vulnerable from open play at least.

But at St Mary’s their marking at set-pieces cost them. Nobody got close enough to Ings for the first goal while both Shane Long (£4.6m) and Ryan Bertrand (£4.8m) were able to make connections on Ward-Prowse’s 43rd minute, which led to the second.

Pukki has two goals and an assist in his last three outings

As for Norwich’s attack, that continues to improve with Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) now on three attacking returns in as many matches.

Admittedly, the Canaries did not start too brightly, Southampton dominating the possession early on, but after Daniel Farke made some alterations midway through the first half and changed personnel at half-time they got more of a foothold in the game.

Midway through the first-half, Norwich went from four at the back to three, with Ibrahim Amadou (£4.5m) dropping out of central midfield into his more natural position of centre-back between Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) and Zimmermann, which did help enhance the Canaries’ passing ability.

“I wanted to change the passing angles to get more control. It was slightly better but we weren’t able to get into dangerous areas. We changed in terms of tactics and personnel at half-time but the most important thing is that we played with more bravery and turned back to our game, not just because we were pressed.” – Daniel Farke

Farke’s tactical changes helped Norwich get back into the game

At half-time, Farke introduced Alex Tettey (£4.5m), and Marco Stiepermann (£5.2m) for Tom Trybull (£4.5m) and Amadou respectively, which had further positive effects.

Tettey screened the back-four very well and played the excellent through-ball for Pukki’s 65th-minute finish while Stiepermann’s presence as a number 10 helped ease any isolation for the centre-forward.

“The second half was a great reaction. We dominated the game and were able to create more chances. We brought more bodies closer to Teemu so we could play the final pass and come closer to the goal. We would have deserved to drive away with a point because we created a lot during the second half. If we stick to our principles, we are competitive at this level. If not, we have problems.” – Daniel Farke

“We just tried to change the formation a little bit at half-time with (Tettey) holding again and (Stiepiermann) a bit higher in the midfield. We were hoping to surprise them a little bit and I think that worked because we played much better in the second-half. Stiepi got in good positions where he could make things happen and Tetts with his experience helped so much on the pitch.” – Christoph Zimmermann

Tettey could be another important part of Norwich’s attempts at crawling their way out of the relegation zone.

After missing the 2-2 draw with Arsenal, Tettey was not quite fit enough to start Gameweek 15 but could be ready to help his side onto better things in a Gameweek 16 home meeting with Sheffield United considering how well he played in the second half at Southampton.

“Alex was great in the second half. Sadly, it was a bit too risky to play him from the start because of a slight problem with his quad. He wasn’t sure if he could fully sprint, but we were 2-0 back at half-time so it was worth the risk. He helped us stabilise our game but the whole team showed great character to show such a reaction as a young side. Each and every game is difficult, but we have to be brave, even away and with one day less to recover.” – Daniel Farke

Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Cédric; Redmond, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Djenepo (Romeu 72′); S Long (Yoshida 85′), Ings (Adams 77′).

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Byram, Godfrey, Zimmermann, Aarons; Trybull (Tettey 46′), Amadou (Stiepermann 46′); O Hernández, McLean, Cantwell (Buendía 83′); Pukki.

    Need some help with what to do with this team. I was thinking connolly > mousset but after a poor GW (48 points with dunk, lundy and ryan left), I should maybe prioritise other transfers.

    No LEI defender and no chelsea mids or fwds (had mount and abraham - out GW14) is a concern.

      It seems fine at first glance, but the problems you mentioned are issues.

      id hold probably and do a mini wildcard next week

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I want to give jimi 1-2 more games and I'll do zaha to grealish in GW17/18. Son is a concern as well if he is hugging the touchline most games and Alli having more goal scoring opportunities

        1. sunnyh
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Son and Alli is probably gonna be one of those things where you get one and stick. Would you be surprised if Son bangs in a double against burnley? Son to Alli would be a luxury transfer if you dont have anything else to do.

          Would appreciate thoughts on my post below too!

    2. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 17 days ago

      i dont like zaha as an asset, plays lm for the most defensive set up team in the league, so him to a cheapie and then connolly to abraham, is that possible?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        it was a short term punt before getting grealish.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I could do zaha to 4.7 or less and have the exact money to get abraham 4.9

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 17 days ago

          abraham 7.9*

          1. lindeg
            • 1 Year

            Do that

            1. lindeg
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Saves a benching headache aswell

    3. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Zaha to Grealish next week and Soy for dunk

  2. sunnyh
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Chelsea seems like they're running out of steam and the fixture congestion doesnt seem like it's helping. Or is it just me?

    Madness to transfer out Mount to JWP for a 2 week punt before getting in Grealish?

    Already have Pulisic and Tammy and preparing for a move to either get Alli or Rashford in the next two weeks. No other transfers jumping out and would just hold otherwise at this point

    1. Yome
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Lampard does not rotate at all hence Mount and Tammy got injuries. It could well happen again.
      I have Pulisic and seriously considering to sell him. He will be frustrating to own, he has done nothing for the last 3 games.
      Tammy as only chelsea cover seems the way to go.

      1. sunnyh
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yeah totally agree. Pulisic was a punt for me 2 weeks ago and hasnt paid off - he just looks so great though.

        Just not sure when is the best time to transition out Pulisic and Mount. They've got eve and BOU coming up.

        1. Yome
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Yes selling before these two games could backfire but the replacement you will pick could do as well.
          I am looking at Zaha as I need fund although many people would say he is also frustrating to have.

          1. sunnyh
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            its either JWP or Grealish atm, and Grealish fixtures for next 2 arent great...

            Id steer clear of Zaha. he could score here and there but no way he threatens every game like Grealish or Pulisic does

      2. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Is Mount injured?

        1. sunnyh
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          he was injured a couple of weeks ago.

          1. Maddamotha
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Thought he was rested...

      3. Daniel Son
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Tammy's injury was a impact injury, cant really blame that on Lampard not rotating.

        1. Yome
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Surely this could have been avoided if he had given more minutes to Michy or Giroud.
          Tammy has been playing every games in succession EPL and UCL.

          1. Daniel Son
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            An impact injury can happen at anytime whether he has played a lot or not

      4. Jullepuu
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Lampard does rotate. Only 4 players have started in all the last 3 games. Maybe Abraham and Mount could have made that 6 players if injuries didn't happen.

    2. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 17 days ago

      im keeping mount, still crazy good value in him

      1. sunnyh
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        question is is there better value out there, especially with Pulisic and Tammy knocking about as well

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Pulisic with 3 blanks now. Is he really better value than Mount being 1mill more expensive as well.

          1. sunnyh
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Mount had 4 blanks before his goal yesterday.... he just seems better value because he just scored the most recently compared to pulisic

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 17 days ago

      for a 2 week punt, I would say no and keep mount. He's had 1-2 game break and should be in the 11 for the next 2 games

    4. Sarri, not Sarri
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I will slowly off load Chelsea assets (Tomori / Mount) - Tammy will be the only one I might keep, but with injuries and harder fixtures, I might not even keep him.

    5. 1314
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      hold and get Grealish when the fixture turns probably

  3. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Who to have with Alli

    A) Son
    B) KDB

    1. sunnyh
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Both

    2. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Kevin

    3. Yome
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      KDB edges it, probably the best assist player of the league who can also score from long range.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I have all three.

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Who are you taking out mate?

      Also weighing up those 2 for either Mount or Maddison but going to wait a week

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Have KDB and Son and want to lose on for Alli to fund a keeper upgrade.

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Ah got you. I’m considering getting one of them in so kinda opposite but in a way the question is the same!

    6. All about the galacticos
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      B, one spurs mid is enough

  4. 1314
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Robbo > Pereira this week (to catch the price rise), Jim > Rashford next..yay or nay ?

    1. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I wouldn't do those moves

    2. sunnyh
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Do you already have TAA? if so then i think that would be ok

      1. 1314
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        don't have TAA, instead have Soy (getting Pereira would mean Lei's double up)

        1. sunnyh
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          then id keep robbo

          Input above would be so appreciated! 🙂

  5. Benditlike
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Would appreciate some feedback 🙂

    2FT, 1.8 ITB. Current team:

    Pope, Button
    VVD, TAA, Chilwell, Lund, Rico
    Mane, KDB, Son, Mount, Cantwell
    Vardy, Ings, Connolly

    Im considering VVD + Connolly -> Kelly + Rashford
    (Have the exact funds, so will probably be priced out if i dont do it today).

    What do you think? Any other suggestions?

    1. coolmule
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good transfers.
      I am doing Maguire & Jimenez to Kelly & Rashford before price changes. And taking a -4 point hit !

    Hi all....2.7mitb....any views on best move here please?

    A....Pope to guaita

    B.....save ft

      Save FT this week. Pope has Newcastle at home week good chance of CS.

  7. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    How about this guys? Martial+Greenwood >> Zaha+Mousse?

    Might cause a few benching headaches but gives a good squad

    Pope
    TAA • Soyuncu • Lundy
    Son • KDB • Mané • Maddison • Martial
    Vardy. Tammy
    (McGov. Tomori. Rico. Greenwood)

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      For free? Looks good as Martial and Greenwood both need to go. Don't worry about benching headaches - they are first world problems.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Haha, yeah for free mate. Zaha or Grealish? Personally think I prefer Zaha but not watched a lot of palace this season

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          With the transfer window coming up, it wouldn't surprise me if Zaha magically finds his mojo again. But Grealish is on better form.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Thanks!

      2. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        why does greenwood need to go? Seems like he'll probably start again doesn't it? Rashford is looking world class and scoring buckets from the wing. Surely Ole won't move him up top.

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I'd do Grealish (over Zaha) and Mousse and that would look good imo

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yeah, could do that. Think I slightly prefer Zaha but can be convinced 🙂

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

      grealish instead of zaha

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Snap 😉

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Can I ask why? 1 bad game for Zaha when down to 10 men?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Zaha has had 13 bad games... And 2 good ones

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Martial to Pulisic straight swap would be better or Maddison & Martial to Alli & Grealish.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Also looked at both of those. Really am lost now 🙂

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        What about Marital > Pulisic and Tomori > Aurier? Was my initial thinking

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          I want to sell Tomori too but I'm confused if I should wait and see if Spurs start keeping clean sheets.
          Like Targett too but doesn't have a good fixture this week.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Thanks. Which of these would you do then?

            A. Martial >> Pulisic
            B. Martial+Tomori >> Pulisic+Aurier
            C. Martial+Maddison >> Alli+Grealish

            1. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              I think C. Both are nailed to start and in good form.

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

      I think you can do better myself Rafa. Both have great fixtures true - but they will frustrate you.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Any of these better mate?

        A. Martial >> Pulisic
        B. Martial+Tomori >> Pulisic+Aurier
        C. Martial+Maddison >> Alli+Grealish

    A) Sterling > Mane (-4)
    B) Sterling > Salah (-4)
    C) Do nothing.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Mane is a good long term option I feel.

    2. 1314
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      A

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Deffo Mane. Did the switch last week and even though sterling scored immediately it's paid off now with this week's results. Mane simply more focal in his team.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Mane may get a rest next gameweek, blank and sterling haul, that would be a bitter -4 to take

      You have used your transfer already, just sit tight and tie your knee down 🙂

  9. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Pope
    TAA - Lundy - Soy
    Mane - Alli - Pulisic - Tielemans
    Kane - Vardy - Jimenez

    (4.0 Cantwell - Tomori - Rico)
    1ft & 1.2m

    A) Tomori to Aurier
    B) Tielemans to Grealish
    C) Save FT

    Giving Kane one more game but most likely gone for Tammy/Rashford next week.

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I'd be tempted to save. If you're really fed up with Tielemans then I'd still prefer A and benching Tiele for now

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yup I'm also leaning towards saving or Aurier.
        Could start Cantwell (SHU) over Tielemans but if I'm keeping him it's because of the two fixtures and then should probably start him.

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Sounds sensible to me

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Unless you play them right away, don't make the move.

      C and use it to ship Kane next week in a double swap. Interesting how our fortunes have changed. Shipping Tammy for Jimenez this week was particularly tragic on your part.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know what time the Thursday Scoutcast is on this week?

  11. THEKID_88
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    What are peoples thoughts on having Alli & Son?

    Worth doing Mount to Alli for free when I have Son?

    1. KINGS
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Is a 2-seconds decision

    2. Livinginapool - Top 100 Any…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Both good scorers. I've got them both.

      Doubling up is fine.

      Mount to Alli looks a good transfer to me.

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      It's a good move even if you have Son.

        Thanks everyone

    4. Jullepuu

      Too risky to get both at the moment imo. Could pay off though.

    5. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I have both, it's a nice differential set up

    1 free transfer this week but want to ship out both Tomori and Martial.

    Should I :

    A) Tomori to Kelly
    B) Martial to *Grealish/Zaha/Ward-Prowse
    C) Both for -4

    *Please note I already own McGinn and owning 2 Villa midfielders not ideal.

    Trent was also a sub in the corresponding fixture last year, Does this have any bearing on this weekend or no?

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      He got subbed a bit early last game. Suggests Klopp intends to play him again

  18. sunnyh
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Alli in a 352 or Rashford in a 343?

    Connolly vs Cantwell/dendoncker in the different bench fodders

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      343

      1. sunnyh
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        there would be no alli in the 343. still would go for that?

  19. Pep Roulette

    Button Rico Dendo Reid

  20. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    What to do here?

    Gazza
    TAA Aurier Lundstram
    Mane KDB Son Pulisic
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez
    _____
    Button; Soy Tomori Hayden

    2 FT 0.7 ITB

    A) Waste FT and do Jim + Tomori ->Rashford + Williams next week
    B) Tomori -> 3.9 and do Gazza + Pulisic -> Alli + Henderson next week
    C) Pulisic to Maddison
    D) Aurier + Pulisic -> 4.4 def + Alli
    E) Something else

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Get rid of tomori for fodder as you will never play him and even if he does come on as a sub Chelsea don't do clean sheets.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        So A or B

  21. Lets VARdy Party

    • 1 Year

    FS you told me to strengthen my bench in prep for xmas, i have done this and now i am picking the wrong starters

    Who should I be benching this week?

    Schmeichel, Button
    TAA, Pereria, Aurier, Lund, Tomori
    Son, Mane, Perecic, Zaha, McGinn
    Vardy, Jiminez, Ings

    Intially was thinking
    Button, Lund, Tomori, McGinn

    Last time i benched Lunds he scored twice : (

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Weaken your bench.

      I don't think that's likely to happen

    2. TONY123

      Wouldn't mind having some chocolate mousse tonight.

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 5 Years

      With a souffle you need to rest for 10mins after it leaves oven.
      A mousse doesn't need to be rested, it's ready to go

  23. jtreble

    Do we know why Tomori didn't play?

    1. Jullepuu
      1 month, 17 days ago

      He just got rotated. It's tough to play 4 games in two weeks

      1. jtreble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rotated. Sell him imo

    3. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years

      Out of favour

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      He's been dropped as the Valencia game suggested. That was Lampards strongest back line

  24. Daniel Son
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Townsend lost £46k from gambling, in one night. God I love footballers and how well they spend their ludicrous salaries

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      One week's salary for him. Easy peasy.

    2. fgdu

      what a tit

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      He could lose 46 million and I still wouldn't give a hoot

    4. Brosstan

  25. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    What to do here with 1ft and 1.6m itb

    Heaton -- Pope
    Taa Lundy Tomori (bought @4.5 but will he start?) -- Rico (LIV) Lascelles (injured)
    Mane Kdb Pulisic Mount -- Cantwell
    Rashford Vardy Ings

    Some options...
    A: Lascelles > Kelly
    B: Pulisic > Alli / Maddison
    C: Mount >> Maddison
    D: Tomori + Mount >> Kelly + Alli (-4)?
    E: Mount/Rashford >> Alli/Tammy (-4)?
    F: Save FT and reassess. Leaning towards D but Mount vs. Ali (-4) should be closer

    1. Sailboats

    B Kelly and Maddison

    1. Your Man With The Hair

      B

    2. Nuno

      After the derby I believe Pep said.

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I prefer he stay injured or as the designated impact striker coming off the bench at the 75th min.

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Never. Behind jebus in the pecking order now

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        I hope so. Prior to his injury, Aguero had one goal in nine matches! I think it's time that Jesus takes the wheel.

        1. AuFeld
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

  29. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    If Connolly doesn't play, I get Rico's 9 points off the bench. Here's hoping!

    1. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      If Lundstram doesn't play I get Dendoncker's 11 😀

    2. Maddamotha

      Rico? Small points, Im getting Dendo.
