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.

    I have the exact money to do;

    Sidibe, Ramsdale & Maddison > Robertson, McCarthy & Sarr.

    Ideally I would do the GK change this week, then the other 2 next GW for free. However any changes in price and I'm priced out. Do I make them all now for -4?

    1. AnyLaporteinastorm
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Risky but could pay off? Shame it involves losing maddy

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

      Go for it

    3. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Just do Ramsdale to McCarthy, Maddison & Sidibe I think will do well this GW

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

      I'd just do the keepers bit. If you have to take a -4 then do it next week ..... you'll be in possession of more info by then anyway.

      1. YoungPretender
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks all

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

    Which should score more this gw
    1) Cantwell vs BOU(-4)
    2) Martial vs liv
    -4 cant be paid off in next few gws as it depends on robbo/mane options

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

      Also Martial will be just on bench, not removing

      1. Big Ping

        1. by about 13 points...

    3. Coys96

      2 as after GW24 Norwich fixtures are terrible

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Anthony.

  3. Coys96
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Which moves in GW24:

    1. Grealish & KdB >> Son & Salah (-4)
    2. Grealish & Soyuncu >> Son & Robertson (-4)
    3. Martial > Salah

    Think I like 1 tbh. From GW24, City face 7 of the top teams in the next 9 and City will probably have a blank in GW28 because of the carabao cup final. KdB could punish me but I expect him to just get 5 pointers during this time, as will also get played deeper.

      Wouldn't worry about City fixtures - they are far too good for anyone else bar Pool.

      KDB is a season keeper imo

    Could really use some help here please guys...
    Was all set to do:

    (A) Jiminez to Firmino (would leave just enough in the bank for Traore to Richarlison)

    but now thinking that I should instead do:

    (B) Rashford to Firmino

    Need to make a decision today before Firmino rises. Any thoughts?

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      A

        Been practicing, huh?

        Nice one, and good spot! I think I'm going with A and will keep 'em crossed on Rashford.

    4. fgdu

      if rashford is properly out then B otherwise A

      Agreed

  6. Longlatini
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Which selection looks better?

    A: Ryan Taa Cantwell Doucoure Aguero

    Or

    B: McCarthy Cathcart Richarlison Salah Ings

    So got 2 frees this week. Need to ditch Alli and rash most likely out. So salah in for Alli but who’s best rash replacement? I have vardy and Ings already. Cheers

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

      Calvert?

    2. AnyLaporteinastorm

      Great minds, just who I was thinking!

    3. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No gurantee rashford even out, and could be worth keeping on bench with Burnley at home in 24

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

      Gd call. I’m gonna wait as long as pos for more news. Cheers

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

    Do we think Mariappa is a risky punt, given that Janmaart is due back soon, or is the full back position his to lose?

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

      Get him in. Came staight back after RC so guessing Nigel likes him.

    2. Jullepuu
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Cathcart is more nailed though

    Watford know nothing here who owns Kiko.

    If he’s fit is he more or less nailed? Is it between him and Holebas?

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

      Didn't he just come in as a stop-gap LB and play ok so kept his place.
      Difficult to know what is going on in Nigel's giant head.

  12. Mr. Wizard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    KDB the obvious captain choice this week then?

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

      Not the obvious pick but certainly a good one. Lots on Vardy.

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

      Kun for those who have him

    3. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not obvious by any means. Of course a good option though. I've got it on Vardy

  13. A Dog Has Its Day
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How long we expecting Mahrez to start for?

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

      Who knows but Sterling and B.Silva will be in contention next GW.

  14. BigBillyBass
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Rashford gonna be riding the pine pony

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

      Hope Ole hasn't broken him.

  15. antoinehude
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    A) Dunk & Martial
    B) Webster & Mahrez

    And

    Calvert-Lewin or Maupay?

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

      B

      DCL

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

    Best Rico replacement?
    A. Stephens
    B. Williams
    C. Holgate
    D. Newcastle def

    1. Next week (free, play Lundy)
    2. This week (-4, drop Lundy or Martial)

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

      B could be a very exciting option from next GW

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

        Exactly - will get 2 and replace Kelly too. You think Williams first perhaps?

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

          Would play Lundy this GW rather than a hit for any of those. If you need two go B then A

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

      B as 4th/5th defender, you'll surely need the extra £0.4 at some point

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

      C

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

    Panicked last night when looked like Rash goosed and Ings rising. Kinda regret now.

    Ok move though?

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

      Good move for this GW but talk of Ings being benched midweek and Rashford then has 3/4 home games coming up.

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

      Rash to Ings for this gw? Yes, imo.

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

        Thanks chaps

    3. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      If the money gained is used to get third liverpool player than probably worth it anyway

    4. Salads
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Did the same to fund for salah next week, I feel good about it!

  18. Pad Randa
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Stuck around the 400K OR mark and might be ready to start taking some chances. On my WC and this is what I've got going so far:

    Button (McCarthy)
    TAA - Lundstram - Stephens (Holgate, Williams)
    KdB (v) - Mane - Doucore - Cantwell (Martial)
    Aguero (c) - Vardy - Ings

    Half-considering benching Vardy and playing Martial instead, but neither one has a promising GW this time 'round. For GW24, going to roll the dice with Vardy >>> Firmino.

    1. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Like it . Good luck.

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

      Just start with Firmino if that is your plan especially if you are thinking of benching Vardy, which I wouldn't recommend. Looks good otherwise and I have a similar WC setup to that this GW.

      1. Pad Randa
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Looking at past matches, he does tend to pop up with a goal against Burnley, so maybe benching him is a bit rash at this point and Firmino may not be a good long-term solution either way, but he does like an away goal and with two away matches in GW24, it's not THAT big of a risk. I got Vardy at 9.9, so getting him back around 10 should be pretty doable.

        The real risky move would be to drop Doucore down to Hayden and use the $$ to upgrade elsewhere, but that leaves me really weak in the midfield. Cantwell is only worth 4.7 to me, so dropping him doesn't make a terrible amount of sense, plus his fixtures kinda pick up towards March.

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

          Vardy 3 goals in 9 full PL matches vs Burnley - certainly not one of his better records. Maybe their low block has been reasonably successful against him in the past but they look completely out of sorts at the minute.

    3. La Roja
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Please bench Vardy. I need to improve my rank

      1. Pad Randa
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I said "half-considering", not "doing it" 😉

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

      How about sneaking mahrez in for martial somehow? Love the aguero pick for ranks climbing

      1. Pad Randa
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Triple up on City? Hold, please (next page incoming).

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

    Which sets of transfers over the next two weeks?

    Option 1: Double Pool defence

    GW23: Fabianski and Abraham > McCarthy and Ings
    GW24: Soyuncu > Robbo

    Option 2: Double Pool midfield
    GW23: Fabianski and Rashford > McCarthy and Calvert-Lewin
    GW24: Maddison > Salah

    Effectively Robbo, Maddison and Ings v Soyuncu, Salah and Calvert-Lewin. When you put it like that it’s double defence innit.

    1. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Similar position myself. My feeling is that Salah is not worth 5 million more than Robertson, and that extra 5 million can make your other players so much better (Maddison and Ings vs Soyuncu and Calvert Lewin). I think double defence is better

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

        Yeah I think I agree with this. Add to that the fact you have a ready made captain choice in Mane and it seems an obvious decision.

    Trailing by 100 point so probably time to start taking punts on captaincy choices, Suspect my rival will pick KDB

    Mahrez or ings C? Or play safer with kdb?

    Considering TAA captain (maybe Tc) next week

    1. XABI 15
      • 4 Years

      Mahrez

    Give Jiminez one more Gw or move a week early for DCL?

    (A) Hold

    (B) Sell

    1. Wingate
      • 9 Years

      I’m tempted to move him to Ings who has better form and fixtures. Wolves next 3 after this weekend are not the nicest.

    Has anyone ever looked Salah's away stats? I just don't see it changing now. Firmino, on the other hand, has been pretty effective away.

    How am I looking for this week? G2G?

    Gazza
    TAA Gomez Chilwell
    Mane KDB Rich Maddison
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    Button Cantwell Lundstram Kelly

  26. nn11

    Been stuck with this team for a few weeks now. 2 FT and nothing in the bank but not sure how to improve...

    Gazzaniga button
    Lund TAA Rico Simpson Kelly
    Salah Mane KDB Cantwell Hayden
    Vardy rash Jimenez

    Currently thinking Jiminez -> Ings.

    Any others?
    Thanks!

    1. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Rashford to DCL, Hayden to Richarlison/Maddison

      1. The Legend Squad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Or even Rash to Ings and upgrade Hayden or Cantwell

        1. nn11
          • 5 Years

          Hmm thanks. Would prefer to do Jimi as have a lot of money invested in Rash...

    Thoughts on this lot ?

    Have Martial in my team right now and not sure I want to sell him but need to get Greenwood in to raise funds and play 442 from now on, got some nice options at the back so could work out.
    On the other hand I can bring in Sarr and DCL and keep on playing 343..

    Ryan Button
    TAA Soyuncu Stephens Dunk Lundstram
    Salah KDB ** Mane DenDoncker
    Ings Vardy **

    a) Sarr, DCL
    or
    b) Martial, Greenwood ( 442)

    Really want to get rid off Pope. Have 0.9itb and 0ft. Options 2-5 are for a hit

    1. Keep
    2. Ryan
    3. Mccarthy
    4. Pickford
    5. Foster

    1. Yank Revolution
      • 8 Years

      For the record, I went 3.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      3

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

      3. Team doing well, fixtures look very good in the medium to long term. Saves you money. What's not to like? (I've put my money where my mouth is 'cos I've got him)

      1. XABI 15
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yep 3 looks good, only issue is that Liverpool away game..

  29. Wingate

    Jimenez to Ings for free? Better form and fix and cheaper....

    Jime - form: 4.7
    Fixtures: sou LIV mun LEI NOR tot

    Ings - form: 6.5

    1. Old Man

      I would, but keep an eye on Jimi ready when we've reached GW27

    I'm keen to find out more about Brandon Williams as an FPL asset (feel like I have missed the memo here).

    How much can we rely on his gametime? How good is he as an option against other sub 4.5s?

    1. Pad Randa
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      My biggest concern with him are cameos. He's a decent enabler who will pop up with the odd good match, especially as Ole trusts him more, but if you have a plum fixture like Burnley and he plays two minutes at the end coming on for Shaw, you'll have burned a starting spot. That said, I'm still starting him next week 🙂

      5 yellows in his last 10 apps in all comps. Guy's a hothead, which is a worry, but for his price its alright I guess.

      Last 5 games he's made 1 goal, 1 assist, 4 shots, 6 key passes and 4 successful dribbles. Decent numbers that.

      Clean sheet potential, last two apps he's conceded 0 goals.
