Scout Notes

Abraham asking tough questions of patient owners

We round up the key Fantasy talking points from Brighton v Chelsea and Aston Villa v Burnley in our first Scout Notes article of Gameweek 21.

Brighton 1-1 Chelsea

Goals: Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.8m) | Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m)

Assists: Lewis Dunk (£4.7m) | Tammy Abraham (£7.8m)

Bonus Points: Azpilicueta x3, Jahanbakhsh x2, Bernardo x2 (£4.3m)

Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) owners may have a tough decision to make over the FA Cup third round break.

The centre-forward continues to tick along with points, registering an assist in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Brighton, but his Amex Stadium performance was another quiet one, just as was the case against Arsenal in Gameweek 20.

Across the 90 minutes, Abraham only touched the ball in Brighton’s penalty box three times and registered just two shots on goal.

Admittedly the first, blocked by Aaron Mooy (£4.8m), led to Cesar Azpilicueta‘s (£5.8m) goal, earning him a Fantasy assist. However, it is this continued drip of points that may make selling Abraham a tricky decision.

Up next for Chelsea is a meeting with Burnley at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues have struggled this season, although the Clarets themselves were exceptionally poor in Gameweek 21.

Abraham was not the only Chelsea asset to struggle at the Amex Stadium as Mason Mount (£6.3m) in particular spent most of the afternoon on the periphery.

Christian Pulisic (£7.0m) was more involved than most but, as has too often been the case of late, his performance largely consisted of snatched shots from the left-hand side that did not trouble the goalkeeper.

The American managed to find space to shoot on five different occasions but regardless of whether he went around the outside of right-back Martín Montoya (£4.4m), or cut inside the defender, Pulisic never really looked like scoring.

“In the first half, the game was there to be won. We weren’t ruthless enough. We got the goal and we had the possession, but we just didn’t kill the game off [The lack of consistency] is a concern. It’s something we absolutely have to look at.” – Frank Lampard

Arguably, the most impressive attacker for Chelsea was right-back Reece James (£5.0m), who surprisingly surfaced in the starting line-up after Frank Lampard had ruled him out for at least a week.

The versatile youngster used his pace to get around Dan Burn (£4.5m) plenty of times in the first half and could have got on the scoresheet with a fierce shot in the first five minutes.

However, James’ forward-thinking helped Brighton maintain a foothold in the game, as Neal Maupay (£5.8m) in particular was able to expose the space behind him.

His runs into that area of the pitch helped set up Steven Alzate (£4.5m) in the fifth minute and Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) just before half-time.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) was called into action for that Trossard effort and was forced into three more important stops in the game too.

Antonio Rüdiger (£6.0m) also had to put his body on the line to keep Chelsea in the game in the second half as Brighton asked plenty of questions.

The Seagulls finally made a deserved breakthrough in the 84th minute when Lewis Dunk (£4.7m) nodded across to Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.8m), who scored with a spectacular bicycle kick.

The Iranian international had to go over a year before scoring his first-ever goal for Brighton against Bournemouth and he now has two in as many outings.

However, it remains unclear whether or not Jahanbakhsh can be turned to as a viable Fantasy asset as he featured only as a substitute against Chelsea, which means he still only has one league start to his name all season.

“Everyone is delighted for Jahanbakhsh. He’s worked so hard and waited so long, and to have his freshness off the bench was the thinking and he popped up with a great strike. He’s had to be patient, but he’s got qualities and he’s getting his reward.” – Graham Potter

Brighton’s goal does tell us a lot about what we need to know on Chelsea’s defence.

It ensured that their only clean sheet since Gameweek 13 was that 2-0 win at Spurs last month and with Fikayo Tomori (£4.8m) missing out on Gameweek 21, not even on the bench, the number of viable assets in Chelsea’s defence is rapidly declining.

“We allowed them to stay in the game. In the end, it was a wonder goal but we were lucky not to lose the game. In the end, the tactics matched up for both teams but they were better than us. We have to take that on the chin.” – Frank Lampard

Finally, there may be a budget option emerging in Brighton’s defence following a serious-looking injury to Burn.

The centre-back has done well on the left of defence this season but was replaced in the 22nd minute after injuring his collar bone and is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.

Coming in for him was Bernardo (£4.3m), now available for upcoming games against Everton (away), Aston Villa (home), Bournemouth (away) and West Ham (away) at a reduced price.

The left-back played 68 minutes of the draw with Chelsea but came on after Azpilicueta scored the opening goal, so he claimed a clean sheet and one bonus for a seven-point score.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-1-2): Ryan; Burn (Bernardo 22′), Dunk, Webster, Montoya; Bissouma (Connolly 46′), Pröpper, Alzate; Mooy (Jahanbakhsh 68′); Maupay, Trossard.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rüdiger, R James; Jorginho, Kanté; Pulisic (Hudson-Odoi 66′), Mount (Kovačić 73′), Willian; Abraham.

Burnley 1-2 Aston Villa

Goals: Chris Wood (£6.2m) | Wesley (£5.6m), Jack Grealish (£6.4m)

Assists: Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) | Grealish, Douglas Luiz (£4.4m)

Bonus Points: Grealish x3, Luiz x2, Wood x1, Westwood x1

Jack Grealish (£6.4m) absolutely ran the show for Aston Villa in their 2-1 win at Burnley on New Year’s Day.

The midfielder was comfortably the best player on the park as he registered a goal and assist for a 13-point haul.

Grealish arguably should have been on the scoresheet before he banked his two attacking returns as a controversial Video Assistant Referee review chalked off what would have been the opening goal of the game.

Centre-back Ezri Konsa (£4.3m) played an excellent cross into the box early on, which Grealish nodded beyond Nick Pope (£4.7m).

However, it was ruled out by the VAR for offside against Wesley (£5.6m) in the build-up, whose boot heel was not much more than a millimetre or two closer to Burnley’s goal than James Tarkowski‘s (£5.1m).

“Jack Grealish is unfortunate to not have two goals today. I’m still not sure why it was disallowed looking at the still image.” – Dean Smith

With VAR arguably not a huge helper of Villa this season, the decision galvanised them and Grealish in particular.

Soon after having the goal chalked off, the Villa captain teed up Wesley, who forced a save out of Pope at the near post, before Douglas Luiz (£4.4m) drew another stop from the Burnley goalkeeper.

In the 29th minute, Grealish’s slightly deflected cross was chested down by an unmarked Wesley, who swivelled and slotted home under Pope.

It was a goal that was well-deserved, as Burnley offered very little in the opening exchanges.

Grealish then got his own goal in the 41st minute after some good link-up with Luiz. The Brazilian sprayed wide to Grealish on his left-flank of the attack, who fired an effort into the top corner before Pope had a chance to set himself.

However, it must be said that Villa were helped in their domination of this fixture by an uncharacteristically poor performance from Burnley.

While the Clarets have been somewhat shy in front of goal recently, it was strange to see them so loose in possession in the midfield.

Burnley were so sloppy pn the ball that it was a little easier for Villa to start their attacks in dangerous positions, while Tom Heaton (£4.5m) remained nothing more than a spectator for at least the first hour.

Villa were also helped by a change of formation though, which saw Smith line-up in a 3-4-3 system, featuring the returning Tyrone Mings (£4.5m), Kortney Hause (£4.4m) and Konsa in the defence with Neil Taylor (£4.3m) and Frédéric Guilbert (£4.4m) as wing-backs.

“We changed the system and I thought that we wanted to get on the ball and play. The lads looked really accomplished at it. We’ve only had a couple of days to work on it. A lot of them have played it before at previous clubs. We’ve been conceding too many goals and playing the three helped us get an extra head in the box.” – Dean Smith

Either way, such a big haul will almost certainly increase the interest in Grealish, who is currently owned by 16.4%, especially with his fixtures on the horizon.

Manchester City, who have displayed defensive weaknesses on the road this season, come to Villa Park next, while Brighton (away), Watford (home) and Bournemouth (away) are the three subsequent opponents for Dean Smith’s men.

It must be said that, as per usual, Villa did struggle in the second half. The fact that Burnley worked their way back into the game means that they have still conceded more goals after half-time than any other side this season.

Chris Wood (£6.2m) knocked on the door on more than one occasion before he busted the Villa clean sheet in the 80th minute.

However, Villa were not helped by injuries to Wesley and Heaton in the second half, both of them stretchered off with knee problems.

“Both of them felt their knee. We’re not sure what the prognosis is as of yet obviously, we will let them have a scan and see from there. Wesley felt something following the tackle from Ben Mee and Tom’s was when he was trying to claw the ball out the top corner. Too early to know, but our medical staff are with them now.” – Dean Smith

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Brady (Gudmundsson 46′); A Barnes (Rodriguez 46′), Wood.

Aston Villa XI (3-4-3): Heaton (Nyland 85′); Hause, Mings, Konsa; N Taylor, Nakamba, Douglas Luiz, Guilbert; Grealish, Wesley (Kodjia 71′), Trézéguet (Hourihane 78′).

  2. sunzip14

    Bottomed and would like to hear some opinion on this to decide.

    I do not see any posts about using the 2nd WC despite such a bad gw and first half of season overall. Is the chip so valuable that you have to keep it for the dgw or are people less confident that they can turn their luck around even with WC, the way this season is going?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I guess majority of us have a decent team, its just not performing. But I would play WC if required. What you can earn in next few weeks would be much more than DGW/BGW wildcard.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Thanks for the double reply Holmes! Any suggestion on whether to use WC to this team below?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Yes, I would but make sure you know what team you would go with. Activating WC and not having a clue about your target team is frustrating 😀

          I can see 7 major changes to that team.

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        This^

    2. Dupuytrens

      The WC is the most valuable chip so treat it with care.
      Best played in combination with the other chips in that double GW blank fixture chaos but equally using it to fix a broken squad at this time of the year can give an advantage.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Worth using it for this squad?
        I only see 4 players I wouldn’t change if on WC. 1ft, 1.3 itb.

        Guaita, Button
        Soy, Kelly, Rico, Aurier, Reid
        KDB, Mane, Zaha, Alli, Hayden
        Kane, Vardy, Wilson

        1. st4rty
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Yes.

        2. Dupuytrens
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          No. But maybe restructuring is required.
          Down grade Kane to Jimenez for the cash for Aurier to TAA -4 or over two weeks and look at Alli to Richarlison as possibilities.

          1. sunzip14
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I was thinking Kane+Aurier+zaha> DCL+TAA+Salah (-8). Thoughts?

            1. Dupuytrens
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              That works for me if you take the hit it will work out over three game weeks.

        3. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Noo. Keep it for a bigger DGW.

          1. Don Van Vliet
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Would definitely save the WC.

            Best approach is to take some time out to target upcoming fixtures, make a gameplan to integrate players in over the coming weeks, and then stick to it. You need to consider taking a number of hits to get to where you want to be; question is whether you suck up a -8/-12, or spread the damage out incrementally.

  3. hshepherd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Which team would you choose heading into GW24? Need to choose one to stage my transfers over the next few weeks

    A) 0ITB
    Fabianski
    TAA sidibe robbo soy
    Salah kdb alli
    Vardy Dcl rashford
    (Button traore lundstram Romeu)

    B) -4, 1.6ITB
    Fabianski
    TAA sidibe soy
    Salah kdb mane traore
    Vardy Dcl ings
    (Button rico lundstram dendoncker)

    1. Dupuytrens
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      A . But only because I like the Pool defender double up better than the Captain dilemma of having Mane and Salah.

      1. hshepherd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Thanks for the reply. Yeah I think the double Liverpool defence gives much better balance to the team overall, especially for their fixtures up to GW31.

  4. Holmes (specialist in failu…
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Pukki to Connolly, Aurier to Robertson for free?

  5. bigbudgie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Ryan
    TAA Soy Lundstrum (Rico, Kelly)
    Salah KDB Maddison Mount (Dendonker)
    Vardy Tammy Rashford

    2FT, 0.1 ITB, very few ideas. I like all fixtures on paper.

    A) Move on Mount or Tammy although they have BUR
    B) Upgrade a defender - Lundstrum to Gomez?
    C) Something else (no idea!)

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Mount to Sarr can work

    2. Crazygopher
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I'd go mount to sarr.

  6. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Already got Everton defense? I would consider Sidibe if that can be done in a single move.

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Reply fail to Holmes!

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Dont have any and would like Sidibe but that means no LIV defender for upcoming weeks :/

        1. sunzip14
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Can’t carry over the ft and get TAA/Robertson in a double move? Or is your another ft also already pre-planned?

          1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Not pre planned but wont have any cash for them if I go for Sidibe

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Doing Sidibe myself. Pool defender GW24 is ok.

  7. davies
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Which option, lads?

    A) Maddison DCL Greenwood (352)
    B) Grealish Jimenez Greenwood (352)
    C) Dendoncker Jimenez DCL (343)

    Fabianski Martin
    TAA Lundstram Söyüncü Rico Kelly
    Salah Mane KDB Martial *****
    Vardy ***** *****

    Cheers.

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…

      A

    2. Crazygopher

      Have you thought about ings dcl + mid

  8. Manani
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    anyone looking at Pepe? Or is that a bit too knee-jerky?

    Arsenal looked pretty good and thinking of Alli replacement

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      If I was going to risk an Arsenal midfielder, Ozil is where the value is.

      1. Manani
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        how did he look in game?

        1. st4rty
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Like the old Ozil.

      2. st4rty
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        This.

    2. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Best Alli replacement is either grelish / martial

      Remember so far, 4 points difference in a GW relates to 2 million places!
      I hope WE made the right Pool choices. I am starting to doubt myself.
      A good side and I see where you slipped because it is almost identical to mine.
      Grealish, have him or not, is a massive points differential this week.
      Alli For Perez I will do. Never thought I would go near him.
      Gazza OK this week I think.
      If Alli is a TV concern, move him or otherwise save IMO.

      1. olidooley

        Cheers man....Big chance for Salah to save me yet if Mané stays quiet

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Obviously hoping the same. He is my Captain now.

      2. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Perez is a nice price but will he still be a good option when Vardy returns?

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I actually think he won't be affected. He is a punt but a reasonably priced one.

    What to do? 2 FT 1.0 ITB

    Guaita
    TAA Soy Lund
    Salah KDB Maddison Alli
    Vardy Abraham Ings

    Button Cantwell Rico Kelly

    1. Akshatjazz

      Go to Alli > martial & then Abraham to Calvert lewin if possible to take a hit the go for Kelly > Robertson

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Maybe Rico, not Kelly. 50/50 choice. Form/Fixtures is the choice.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      You will probably lose TV but time for Rico to go or change the keeper.
      All sides are so close now. Look at the prior post.

      1. Akshatjazz
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Who will you replace Rico with ??

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I would go Sidibe or a 3.9. (2 opposites)

          1. Wild Card this...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            There is also Holgate as cheap option - as he is in Rico price bracket.

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              True, but expect defensive returns only. That was a toss up for me too.

  11. Akshatjazz
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Dendonker > cantwell with 1ft and 1.3 itb (after making the move) ?? As a 8th attacking option ??

    1. olidooley

      Nah

      1. Akshatjazz
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Can to tell hw my team looks ??

        Pope, Henderson
        TAA , lundstrum, soyunca, Robertson,Rico
        Mane,kbd,martial,dendonker, Maddison

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Potential benching headache though. What about Cantwell as your 4th mid and upgrade elsewhere?

      1. Akshatjazz
        1 month, 24 days ago

          Looks good, Martial and Madisson in form. Maybe swap em to Son and Cantwell.

      I got Cantwell last week as had no idea how to use the tfr. Took out Fleck, put Cant on the 1st bench and Vardy missed out. Got lucky in what I consider was the most boring TFR of the season.

        How has your gameweek been? Had Vardy cap and KDB vice, can´t wait for the pool game to be over so I can sleep once more. Hating not having salah/mane :/

    MINIMINO ... whens he get added?

    1. Pass it to Demba
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Minamino*

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Shortly. His FPL name will probably be Mini ironically.

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Issues with his registration but could play in cup v Everton. Some game to make your debut. Think was same game for Van Dijk.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Tnks for the article. Amazing 3 class players come from a small club and end up at Pool.
        I think ManU got lucky missing out on Haarland.

    I might actually bench Alli next GW and play Lundstram!
    Should have sold him before the drop and cashed out 0.2 on him but prob hold for the NOR fixture now.

    1. Moose™
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Yeah. Holding him atm. Hes playing in dangerous areas

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I sold him last night. Crossing fingers for no injuries.

  15. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    How was the Gw so far guys? I have 38 points with mane and taa to go..all autosub points calculated..Is it good?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Depends on how many players left

      Better than mine atleast

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Trent and Mane to go..whats your point?

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          To answer your question.

          1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I mean your points this gw?

            1. GreennRed
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Oops. I thought you were being tetchy!

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      28 after Rico comes in for Vardy with just Trent to go so you're crushing me 🙂

    3. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      15 🙂

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      28 with Cantwell coming from the bench.
      A very boring GW IMO with nothing to cheer many up.

  16. Moose™
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    94 points to catch top10k. Is it still possible?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Would have said yes in previous season but things are not looking easy this time.

      Have to outscore top 10k average by around 6 per week. Looks easy on paper but not sure.

      1. Moose™
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Been hovering around 400k for 3 weeks.. Definitely tough tho!

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Plenty of time. Use your chips smartly and choose captain wisely. Don't be afraid of hits and be wary of Double Gameweeks bearing gifts!

      1. Moose™
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        32 points of hits taken.. I dont really care about hits if it is well justified..

    3. rainy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Certainly possible. Captain choice, DGWs, luck, it all adds up

      1. Moose™
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Need to have few differential to climb up the OR I guess?

        1. rainy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          ...and better differentials than everyone else. Truly though, it’s quite possible to bridge a 90-odd point gap. My worst-ever start one season ended in my best-ever finish.

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        In both directions unfortunately.

        1. rainy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Bah, don’t remind me 😉

    4. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      All down to getting lucky on captains picks imo, maybe 30k rise with good chip play

  17. PepSala
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Captain Vardy or Sterling next GW?

  18. Akshatjazz
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Who to play

    Pope / Henderson ??

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Henderson

  19. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    I was annoyed to see kdb yesterday was he defender or what?pep is mad..

    1. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      He was playing CDM

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Any reason why?noticed in the Sheffield game..is he going to continue in that position?if that's the case I guess we need to rethink about kdb..

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I know one must keep an eye on such situations, but this time, better left alone.

        2. Akshatjazz
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Thats not going to happen often cuz pep had the rotation magic again by not playing sterling but frm now on evey gameweek will have enough time for players to take rest so v will knw everything abt the player status

  20. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Trailing by 6 points to cup opponent..he has salahC left and me having Mane..Cup gone right?

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Considering how Salah performed last week, it should be easy for you

      1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Let us see there is only a small hope..

    2. st4rty
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Only takes Mane goal & an assist and Salah to blank, etc.

  21. Pigeon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Feel like I got rid of the wrong Leicester player in Soyuncu... Feel like I can't bench Pereira ever, even though he isn't getting as many attacking returns as I'd like lol

  22. Balance
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Anyone knows why Tomori was not in the squad?

    Thanks!

    1. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Since rudiger is back into the starting xi chance of him playing this week is more since even lampard is rotating his players to keep them fresh

  23. pollz
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Sterling gotta go? Or will my patience bear fruit? Currently on KDB and sterling.... not a great week.

    1. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Sterling is such a headache, haven't owned him all season and there's been quite a few times hiding behind sofa and plotting to get him but overall pleased

    2. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Realx ! This gameweek was not fruitful to many since vardy didn't play , kbd blanked , etc.. give in this week and then think of removing sterling

  24. PepSala
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Captain Vardy or Sterling next GW? Vardy coming off an injury and Sterling due a couple of goals

    1. pollz
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I also feel sterling is due, but having him in my team has been a pain for quite some time...

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Vardy. Will be well rested and firing on all cylinders 😉

    3. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      V shldn't talk about captain (cuz many of the managers will be captaining vardy i.e even I'm one of them ) the problem is who to make the vice Captian , wat if vardy is rested again then the VC comes into play

      Any possible vc options ??

  26. The Neville Wears Prada
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Genuinely don't know what to do with this team -

    Ramsdale
    TAA - Soy - Lund (Aurier, Reid)
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Traore (Dendonk)
    Vardy - Abraham - Jimi

    1. Infected by ebolasie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Ramsdale, Aurier and Abraham look like problems

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Very similar team and it’s bleak. Most probably have 2 pool tomorrow and we have 3 but C gone on KDB. EO wise Salah is the big diff tomorrow.

    3. Akshatjazz
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Try to bring ings , martial

  27. BrutalLogiC
    • 4 Years

  28. JasonG123
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Ramsdale (McGovern)
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram (Rico Kelly)
    Mane KDB Martial Grealish (Cantwell)
    Vardy Rashford Jimenez

    2FT, 1.5m ITB. Ramsdale to:
    (A) Ryan
    (B) Fabianski
    (C) McCarthy
    (D) Fabianski

    1. Akshatjazz

      Ryan or even Henderson

  29. Albrightondknight

    Any takers on a Jimmy C ?

  30. yer old da
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Alli > Martial and Grealish > Traore for free in preparation for an upgrade of Soyuncu to Robbo for DGW24?

    Alli and Grealish have Liverpool and City this week whereas Martial and Traore have Norwich and Newcastle at home.

    1. JasonG123
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I would not trade Grealish now.
