Weakness down Spurs’ right flank bodes well for owners of Deulofeu and Cantwell

One of the world’s best FPL managers, Tom Freeman, talks Double Gameweek 24, Southampton, Spurs, Everton and Aston Villa in his latest article.


So, we’re just past the halfway point of the season and I sit 37,727th overall in Fantasy Premier League, having banked 57 points in Gameweek 22.

Having been ranked 36,928th in Gameweek 20, I’ve struggled to progress in recent weeks, but with the first Double Gameweek of the season almost upon us, now feels like an opportunity to push on.

My advice would be to pick three of Liverpool’s four highest-scoring players – Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Andrew Robertson (£7.0m), Sadio Mané (£12.4m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.3) – whichever combination works best within your current structure.

Whilst Roberto Firmino’s (£9.3m) away performances are worth noting (all seven of his league goals have come on the road this season), we need to remember that these players aren’t solely for Gameweek 24.

Fixtures to follow include notable home games with West Ham United and Bournemouth, which suggest goals, and lots of them, which is why I favour the more attacking setup including both Mané and Salah.

With Reds assets in place, a question I’ve asked myself is, should we invest in West Ham?

On Friday’s evidence, it’s hard to get excited. I thought they were abject in possession, with nobody looking to support and run beyond Sébastien Haller (£7.0m). As it stands, I need to see more from them. All eyes on the London Stadium on Saturday.

On a more positive note, Southampton are a team I do like.

The Saints took just eight points from their opening 12 matches but now look at them. Only leaders Liverpool and champions Manchester City stand above them in the form table over the last ten games.

Alex McCarthy (£4.4m) or Jack Stephens (£4.3m) are my favoured routes into their defence.

With some good forthcoming fixtures, working one of them into your plans, alongside Danny Ings (£6.8m), looks like an astute move.

Southampton’s FA Cup fourth round opponents, Tottenham Hotspur, are a team who I thought got a lot right in Saturday’s narrow defeat to Liverpool, and had chances late on to at least draw level.

After the break, they were less direct and offered more threat following the introduction of Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m) on 69 minutes. The Argentine has been so, so good recently and picked up where he left off on Saturday, by scoring Spurs’ opener in their FA Cup replay against Middlesbrough earlier this week. Another positive performance against Watford and he’s going to become an option.

Whilst I think Lo Celso could be the key to unlocking Spurs potential, this quote from Mourinho suggests Ben Davies (£5.3m) could be that player and hints at how he wants to play going forward:

If you want to know what I wanted to do, look to my first game, against West Ham. That’s the way I thought I was going to develop the team. Defend with a back four, attack with a back three. That was the first day of unlucky, goodbye Ben Davies.

What Spurs do need to do is tighten up – they’ve kept only two clean sheets in the league this season, the joint-worst record alongside Norwich City.

Talking of clean sheets, Everton have now kept ten in their last 16 home league games. 

Despite talk of possible rotationMason Holgate (£4.4m) could still be a nice, cheap route into their defence. If you can afford a bit more, I like Djibril Sidibé (£5.4m), who has at times been used further forward, and Lucas Digne (£5.7m). 

Also, Richarlison (£8.1m) has now returned in three of Carlo Ancelotti’s opening four league matches. In fact, no midfielder has taken more shots than him over that period.

A final word on my club, Aston Villa.

Sunday’s performance by Man City was superb but was aided by Villa gifting them goals from unforced errors. Kortney Hause (£4.4m), Danny Drinkwater (£4.4m) – they were all at it.

Regarding Drinkwater, why throw an unfit player into this type of game? It was baffling. I like Dean Smith but he’s been getting more wrong than right recently.

That being said, these types of game won’t shape our season, it’s the next three that will.

I still think there is hope, and the signing of Pepé Reina (£4.5m) will give everyone a lift, but Villa need to find a better balance in midfield and add a forward, quickly.

For Jack Grealish (£6.5m) owners, I’d be tempted to hold onto him a little longer. Against teams currently placed 12th and below this season, Grealish has returned four goals and five assists in ten games. If we’re going to score, he’ll probably be involved.

Looking ahead to Gameweek 23, I have two free transfers, with £0.3m in the bank.

Here’s how I’m currently set up:

I’m still undecided on transfers but am considering selling Çaglar Söyüncü (£5.1m).

Leicester City have regressed in recent weeks and without Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) screening the back four, I don’t see too many clean sheets over their next run of fixtures.

With Man City starting to pick up again, I’m leaning towards Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) as my captain but will likely make a late call on that one.

Thanks for reading… until next time.

    What is the scoop on Williams? Is he in the side for a while, or is Shaw replacing him shortly.

      Sharing the spot at best.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Surely first choice at best? Sharing the spot at worst?

          Shaw would just get fatter if he's available but benched.

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 8 days ago

            That's true, I really don't want him coming back in, he's been very poor for a long time now.

      Save

    3. HashAttack
      • 2 Years

      I sold - but if he was fully fit I would be planning to get him back too

    4. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      probably go for it this week given you already have triple Liverpool ready to go

    5. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Cheers all.

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

        You leaning towards keeping or selling ? May get news tomorrow I guess.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Not sure, there's 0.1 in selling tonight.

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

            Unless you are desparate for the cash, probably worth investing that .1 in more information.

    6. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      It's a good move because Ings is great although you can do without Rash this week anyway if he's gonna be fit for Burnley which could be a high scoring fixture for him when a lot of players will have moved him out because of injury and/or fitting in Liv players.

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        he could probably afford Sarr -> Martial at that point

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'm much rather have Rash though.

    7. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Could be on for a great score GW24 - how hard is it to to get DCL to Ings?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        0.7 needed after tonight.

    8. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No brainer. 0.3 ITB if u need to reverse

    9. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Save, been excellent points provider.

  8. Lindelol
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Maupay, Jiménez or DCL this week? Have Richarlison already

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Mopey

    2. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Maupay if literally just for this week

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Otherwise DCL right??

        1. markloe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          yes, think he's very good value for the next 4

  9. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How does Alli go from 5 returns in 3 games under Jose to 5 Blanks in 6 games under Jose

    Im tempted by Alli > Rich but don't want the little rascal to go and smack in braces vs villa & Norwich after I've sold

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Long balls from CB's not working anymore.

    2. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Get Son

    3. The Albatross
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      His brother's playing now

    4. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      he had a lot of gametime over Christmas and also as a team they hit some harder fixtures

    5. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Tbf, his initial returns were all Jammy

    6. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Did that last week immediately after the Soton v Spurs match ...+4 points up already after the hit

    7. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Look at the fixtures he returned in then look at his next 4

  10. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Really cant decide between these moves:

    a) Rashford + Kelly -> DCL + Robertson
    b) Rashford + Chilwell -> Tammy + Robertson

    Worth keeping Chilwell?

    1. markloe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I would give him the next two, based on those two options Tammy's fixtures get more difficult soon

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Sheff Utd defence looks like a good place to shift to GW25 for example

    2. fgdu
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      feels like theres better options than tammy. You can always get chilwell back in gw28

  11. anish10
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Anyone considering Deeney instead of Ings?

    1. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yes if your rank is beyond 1.5 million

    2. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not with Sarr in place

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Anyone getting a hammer in then for the double? Noble?

    1. Lord - Blaming it on Rio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yep. Dived right in with Fabianski.

      1. BrutalLogiC
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He's back?

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      considered Noble/Snoddy as they are in the Traore price-range but think I'd rather just have Doucoure for a SGW

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Is Snoddy nailed?

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          nah don't think so

        2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          He'll play fair minutes every game but half will be from the bench. Shame because he's a Moyes type of player - but like Noble, he doesn't have the legs for 90 week in week out. WH desperately need fresh legs in centre-midfield to help Rice but Dildo Daves are of course clueless...

      2. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        unless they look much better vs Everton I'd be kinda surprised if they get more than 1 goal in the double, hard to get the right one

    3. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      even on a free hit, I would still only put him 1st sub

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Whos playing keeper?

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Randolph prob (imo)

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        No idea

      3. potatoace'scott talent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Won't be surprised if Martin gets one game and Randloph the second. Then Randolph from then on.

    5. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I've already got Bulbuena.
      Won't be playing him 24 though.

    6. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Noble if I had a spare transfer, but don't and not fussed about it.

  13. Fozzyb34r
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I have one free transfer and already have Salah, Mane and TAA for next week. Would you:

    A) Jimi to Maupay
    B) Jimi to DCL
    C) Save FT

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Save

  14. HashAttack
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Preferred Liverpool trio?

    a) DDM
    b) DDF
    c) DMM
    d) DMF
    e) MMF

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Certainly not E. Torn between A and C.

    3. No Pirlo No Party
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Has to be one of these two:

      Salah - Mane - TAA/Robertson
      Salah/Mane - TAA - Robertson

    4. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      TAA is a must then one of Salah or Mané. Third pick could be Robbo, Firmino or VVD

    5. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A already in place.

      Was trying to work out the initials for a while before the moment of clarity.

    8. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm leaning between b) and d) ... if Rashford is out then I would want to bring in Firmino

      With b) I get Son as my other Mid, with d) I end with a 5.3 defender, probably Evans

    9. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      C if you can afford, A if you can't. D if you are chasing hard.

      1. HashAttack

        I was planning on Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich

  15. No Pirlo No Party

    What to do with the 2FT's this week? Time make the a move for the third Liverpool player?

    Ryan - Button
    TAA - Soyuncu - Lundstram - Rico - Holgate
    Salah - KDB - Martial - Grealish - Dendoncker
    Vardy - Abraham - Ings

    2FT with £1.1 in the bank.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Just lose Rico

      1. No Pirlo No Party
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Who are you thinking for?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Cathcart, Stephens, Williams (not this week, but could be a viable starter and if he doesn't feature you have decent cover).

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

      Rico to Stephens

  16. g40steve

    Captain choice correct, KDB or Vardy?

    Play Rashford after Oles info?

    McCarthy
    Trent, Soy, Robbo,
    Salah, KDB C, Maddison, Martial
    Vardy, Ings, Rashford

    Martin, Lundstram, Traore, Rico,

    .3 bank.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm cKDB vcVardy , think Leicester could start laying turds from now on, no ndidi no bueno

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Vardy, but possibly his last hurrah

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

    Am I right to bench Martial out of these?

    A) Martial
    B) Cantwell
    C) Grealish
    D) Jimenez

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Probably

    2. Worsle90
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yeah I'd sling Cantwell or Grealish in the mix this week

    3. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yes

    4. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'd be tempted to bench C tbh

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

        Brighton 1 clean sheet in 11 though, and Grealish was on fire away to Burnley a couple of weeks ago

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I was more assuming no Wesley is a negative for the attacking mids but no idea really, I don't really like benching OOP mids though

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

            Yeah it's a difficult one.. Captaining Martial one week and benching the next 😀 It is Liverpool at Anfield though..

            1. SADIO SANÉ
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              yeah true, tough one - I'd just go with your instinct and hope for the best

  18. arndff_
    • 8 Years

    A) Jimenez to Maupay
    B) Roll FT

    Ryan
    TAA Soy Lundstram

    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    Button Dendo Williams Kelly

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

  19. unitednations

    Best options from there from dgw24 onwards. Already have TAA and Salah

    A: Robbo + Son + DCL
    B: Aurier + Mane + DCL
    C: Robbo + Martial + Tammy

    1. arndff_

      A

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      A

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

        C?

    3. unitednations

      interesting...didnt expect that.

  20. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

    Ryan
    Soyuncu Lundstram TAA
    Martial KDB Mane Salah
    Maupay Ings Vardy
    Bench: Button Rico Dendo Kelly
    1.0itb 0ft

    A) Stick
    B) Dendo to Cantwell/Noble/Snodders (-4) and play over Martial
    C) Rico to Stephens (-4)
    D) Martial to somebody (-4)

    Captain
    1. Kdb

      Stick, Jamie
      You'll want Tony back the following week

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        True. I assume he's on pens too?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Maybe, but Mata, he's so hot right now so difficult to know.

  21. Worsle90
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I'm taking a punt on Lucas Moura this GW but still have 1FT remaining. What should I do with it, if anything?

    Pope (LEI)
    TAA, Robbo (MUN), Aurier (WAT), Holgate (WHU)
    Mane (MUN), KDB (CRY), Moura (WAT), Traore (SOU)
    Aguero (CRY), Vardy (BUR)

    Button, Lundstram, Greenwood, Dendoncker

    £0.7m ITB

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Either put it somewhere safe or maybe put Pope out of his misery.

  22. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    1 FT, 1.1 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

    Ryan
    TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
    Salah, Mane, KDB, Cantwell
    Vardy, Ings, Rashford*

    (Woodman, Traore, Kelly, Simpson)

    A) Traore -> Sarr
    B) Traore & Rashford -> Martial & DCL
    C) Traore & Rashford -> Son & Ayew
    D) Rashford -> DCL (Kelly & Traore -> Son & Williams next week)
    E) Traore, Kelly & Rashford -> Son, DCL & Williams
    F) Traore, Cantwell & Rashford -> Son, Greenwood & Sarr (leaves 0.0)

    With Rashford (and Traore) presumably a doubt and Holgate potentially rested I dont want to stick and risk not fielding 11. Currently on A although quite like the look of D and then E next week.

    Cheers.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A unless we have terrible news about Marcus. Kelly can always come in and get -1.

  23. Rbyrne95
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Traore > Cantwell (or other under 5.6) or Pope to McCarthy worth a hit?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Nah

  24. bigdip

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Beautiful. Playing Tony over Dom?

    2. Worsle90
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You WCing next week or taking a hit?

  25. Pu-li-sick (sic)
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    You gobble up 4m defenders like Rico and Kelly but as soon as their time is up, you're left looking at an anaemic defence with not a lot of options to improve. Can and will stretch to Webster but wildcard is tempting.

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      they should only really be fodder anyway, Kelly is still fine for that

      1. Pu-li-sick (sic)
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Maybe but ideally you'd have only one.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Wildcarding to fix your bench?

      1. Pu-li-sick (sic)
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I want a playing bench though and maybe soon neither will.

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Sure but maximising the power of the Wildcard is more important than fixing your bench right now.

    3. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Holgate, Williams, Webster?

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I guess that’s what saying goodbye is always like - like jumping off an edge. The worst part is making the choice to do it. Once you’re in the air, there’s nothing you can do but let go.

  26. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Given the choice, who would you say is a bigger priority to drop: Rico or Kelly?

    1. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rico.
      He seemed to have been dropped already. Kelly is still playing.

      And also coz at least Kelly is the more likely to get you at least 2pts.

    2. Wag the Drog
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Think it's worth getting one more game to think about it. Rico has nice fixtures but might be out of favor. Williams could start against Burnley next week too.

    3. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rico

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      +1 for Rico

  27. Wag the Drog
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    This is an absolutely pivotal moment in the season for me. Really can't decide.

    a) GW23 Rashford -> Ings (-4), GW 24 Maddison -> Salah
    b) GW24 Rico -> Robertson

    a) would give me a midfield of Salah, Mane, KDB, Grealish

    I would hate to miss Rashford against Burnley and still have faith in Maddison, but I expect Rashford to get 90 minutes or less in the next two matches.

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A if Rashford is out this weekend, B if he's fit.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Hold Rash till last minute. Ole's lost without him.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Captain of Tanzania of course.

  29. yer old da
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    I’m assuming no-one is going to argue with the below 2FT this week, especially as it frees up the money to do the Soyuncu to Robbo upgrade next week?

    Fabianski and Abraham > McCarthy and Ings

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

      Nope. gtg.
