What impact will Berge have on Lundstram and Sheff Utd’s defence?

The arrival of Sander Berge (£5.0m) at Sheffield United has led to further fears for John Lundstram (£5.1m) owners.

Chris Wilder threw the Norwegian defensive midfielder straight into the Blades’ first-team in Gameweek 25 in a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Berge played 68 minutes before being replaced by Lundstram, who has already lost his place to Muhamed Bešić (£4.4m) in Gameweek 24.

With competition for midfield places heating up at Bramall Lane, we’ve researched what Berge will bring to the Premier League.

And while this article acts as a Scout Report on the Blades’ latest recruit, we will also be using it to work out the effect his arrival will have on Lundstram.

The History and Statistics

Berge arrives at Sheffield United as something of a major coup for the newly-promoted club.

The Norwegian midfielder was linked with many of the Premier League’s top clubs during the January transfer window, including Manchester United, while Liverpool and Napoli, who faced him in this season’s Champions League group stages, were also rumoured to be interested in his services.

Not surprisingly, Wilder had to smash the club’s transfer record to bring Berge to Bramall Lane.

Still only 21 years of age, the midfielder has risen to the top end of European football very quickly.

Berge graduated from local side Asker’s academy in 2013 and made his senior debut in the third tier of Norwegian football aged just 15.

Eliteserien outfit Vålerenga signed him for the 2015 campaign, where he made 36 first-team appearances before earning a big move to Belgian club Genk in 2017 – still just 18-years-old.

Despite his tender age, Berge soon a reputation for controlling the midfield with his discipline, ability to read the game and his physical attributes.

His primary role at Genk was to drop deep to win the ball and distribute it quickly to the more creative players around him, helping his team-mates construct effective counter-attacks.

During three years in Belgium, Berge featured heavily, making 73 league appearances, helping Genk to the domestic title and Super Cup in 2018/19 as well as competing in three separate European competitions. 

After two Europa League campaigns, Berge and his Genk team-mates took part in this season’s Champions League, alongside Liverpool, Napoli and Red Bull Salzburg.

Furthermore, Berge has also competed at every age group for the Norwegian international team, right from Under-15s to the senior side, who he debuted for in 2017 and now has 20 caps and one goal.

Securing a player with experience of the very top level in European football, as well as winning titles, especially at such a young age, can only improve a club like Sheffield United, who were competing in League One as recently as 2017.

Furthermore, it should push the Blades onto new heights, as they continue to press home on their chances of qualifying for European football for the first time in their history this season.

“Sander is someone we have known about for quite a while now. We have tracked him over a sustained period of time, he was a player we highlighted as someone who could come in and really improve us and we are thrilled he’s agreed to come here. When we sat down with Sander it was clear that he was really excited about coming here and that was great to see. I think this signing just shows how far we have come in a short space of time, that we are now attracting the likes of Sander to the football club. It’s a brilliant signing for us.” – Chris Wilder

“To win and go fifth in my first game is fantastic. But we cannot stop there. We must push forward. The song is all about playing in Europe next season. That is the ambition.” – Sander Berge

While his mental and physical attributes, as well his ability to dictate play from deep, may improve Sheffield United moving forward, as a defensive midfielder, Berge has never been particularly renowned for goals, netting just six times in three years at Genk. Before that, the youngster never once scored a senior league goal in Norwegian football.

    What's everyone doing with Lundy then?

    I'm torn, I partly want to get rid to bring in a player from Southampton/Burnley and start building towards BGW28.

    With that in mind, my current thinking is Stephens/KWP/Taylor.

    The downside is by neglecting another SHU defender (Egan/O'Connell) as the replacement, I'm potentially missing out on 2 cleansheets in the next 2.

    Interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Cheers,

      Holding

      Other fires to put out

      1. SweepaKeepa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Holding not guaranteed starts.

    2. Just Kreuzing

      Went early last week to Stevens

    3. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Same here..
      I Think im gonna do Lund->Stephens. Dont want to stress is Lund playing or not.
      But i have Hendersson in goal what gives me some cover.

    4. General_Zod
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Gone in WC.
      He was a minor fire but needed addressing.

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      5th defender. Other moves have priority but ironically there seem better options for Lundstram than for Doucoure and Vardy.

    6. Iggy pop
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Will likely start lund this week as a last chance, then bench him until I WC

    7. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I don’t think their record signing will be benched for Lundy so it’s going to mostly be cameos going forward baring injuries.

    8. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years

      Rotation risk defender? Get rid when you don't have bigger fish to fry.

    9. ppv
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Sold for Stephens and will do Mings to Taylor or Lascelles with other free transfer. Probably Taylor 4.2. Good for 27 and 28

    10. cigan
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      had him from the beginning, just sold for 4.5 and brought in Gomez for the Liv defensive double up

    11. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I need to sell Haller, but considering selling Lundstram to free up funds so I can upgrade to Jimenez

  2. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Is Jack Grealish over as a fantasy option?

    1. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Nope

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Why do you ask?

    3. G Banger

      I'm keeping until WK28

    4. Amey

      Which fantasy ?
      😉

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Just getting started.

    6. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Unlucky not to return last GW. Spurs only kept 4 CS so I am hopeful for something. Villa need points.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Fingers crossed
        I'm actually frustrated for picking him up on WC last GW. Lack of options.......

        1. RLew
          5 months, 5 days ago

          I spent all last week trying to decide between Grealish and Traore as a replacement for Mane and ultimately went for Grealish, even with the blank, because I think he's the best player in that price range. I'm disappointed he blanked at BOU, but I think he'll come good over the next two weeks.

    7. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      No way

    8. ppv
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Grealish talisman, playmaker and main goal treat for Villa. I bought for 5.9 so will keep whole season unless injury. Best value in FPL now Lundy is finished

    9. cigan
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      he should still do very well for his price

    10. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      On the decline

  3. Just Kreuzing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Went early on Kelly to Boly.
    Just had enough cash.

    Who to play Foster or Ryan this week?

    Foster/Ryan
    TAA, Holgate, Stevens (Rico)
    Salah, KDB, Maddison, Fleck (Traoré)
    Ings, Vardy, Firmino

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      ryan

  4. Totti
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    who do u rather guys for the coming 3 weeks?

    A) moura
    B) willian
    C) bergwijn
    D) grealish

    1. Just Kreuzing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Grealish, nailed on

      1. Totti
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        do u think wii outscore willian and moura in the coming 2 matches?

        1. Totti
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          will*

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Martial and maupay? Thoughts? Thinking maybe keep maupay for one more and downgrade Martial to maybe bring in Jimi for Maupay next gw..

    1. Totti
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      for me drop both if you have 2 FT
      if not drop martial only

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Also have Lund and WHU leaky atm

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Watford *

    2. Young Lingard
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I’d fear the bandwagon of Jimenez If he catches fire
      I’ve had him for ages since £7.1 and wanted him to rise quicker at his low ownership at the time. I think planning for him you could get out priced
      I’m waiting for Auba and he rose in price without playing.

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Sell Maupay, keep Martial for now. We don’t know if Maupay will start, while Martial is nailed. Also while his performances haven’t been great recently, Chelsea match should be quite different to Burnley and Wolves who parked the match for most of the game.

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Parker the bus*

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Sorry I’m an idiot, can’t spell 🙁

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Think Martial is worth another whirl - just to see effect of Fernandes - he was going well enough with Rashford after all and Chelsea away could be a better game for attack than Wolves home.

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        but he's been awful without Rashford .. and I think ManU should get to the next round of the cup

        If you have no Spurs players then Stevie B could be a good replacement

    5. RLew
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I'm sticking it out with Martial, Maupay, and Lundstram for one more week and then using one of two FTs next week to upgrade Maupay to Jimenez. I like Maupay's fixture this week, just hoping he plays.

  6. General_Zod
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Wild card is active. Basic spine is

    McCarthy/Pope
    TAA/Stephens/Egan/Boly/Lascelles
    XXXX KDB Salah Traore XXXX
    Ings Aguero Auba

    Currently on Fleck and Perez/Barnes for the other 2 slots (budget 11.5m)

    Plan is to move around the fwds to target fixtures;
    Firmino (WHU) 27
    Vardy (nor) 28
    Jimmy (WHU) 29

    Bench boost will probably be held to 29 unless the DGW offers up more.

    Anyone else setting up similar?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Don't rate Aubam. Get Jiminez then perez/Barnes to a fun punt or just keep the money itb personally.

      1. General_Zod
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        There's no one really knocking down doors with a fun punt for me.
        Son just out of reach at 10m

        Auba getting NEW/EVE/blank/WHU isn't a bad run.

        Its not as if I can't change him down at a moments notice.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Fair enough, I suppose so. Think Jimi will be huge with the fixtures

    2. Young Lingard
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Your team looks really strong you must have good value there.
      With your team locked
      Do you have any ‘bank’ I’d save .something to see through your rotation plans
      G2G though for sure

      1. General_Zod
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Barnes over Perez gets me 0.5 itb.
        If anything I'm expecting the fwds I hold to increase in price.

        The teams Im selecting from get me to 32 before there a swing and I'll use FH31.

        I could be more conservative and get Firmino (nor) in for Auba (NEW) and keep a transfer in reserve with 1.6m itb

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          I'd take Barnes over Perez but points wise it could go either way

    3. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Wouldn't bother with Auba .... would have Firmino instead as it seems odd to bring him in for a home match against West Ham but not for away to Norwich

      My team is pretty similar with the following differences
      Auba > Bobby
      XXXX > Son
      XXXX > Fleck
      Pope > Hendo
      Egan > Dunk

      I will be losing Dunk and plan to replace McC with Pope

      1. General_Zod
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Hmm, yeah. Could have him ahead of Auba.

        Gives me extra tfr into 28 should I need it. Cheers

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Must have 3 Liverpool with their fixtures.

      Ditch Boly or Stephens for Gomez.

  7. G Banger
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Sorry for repost, but hoping for a couple of responses:

    Have held on to Mane and have 1FT and 0.1ITB with the following:

    Henderson
    TAA Stephens Lundy
    KDB Salah (C) Grealish Mane*
    Vardy DCL Jimenez

    Button Lacelles Cantwell Soyunco

    a) Lundy => SHU defender
    b) Hold for 2FT next week (enabling DCL => Ings for free)
    c) Other

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      B. Lund could start this week tbf.

      1. G Banger
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        That's my thoughts as well, and if I miss one cleany and lose 4 points next week, I'm pretty much even!

      2. #FPLBhuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        you honestly think so pal?

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Yh, I'm waiting on presses but wilder was full of praise and he looked great when he came on. Will also be more attacking at home so may favour Lund over burge. Really not too sure though

    2. Young Lingard
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Keep an eye on mane news
      Play Lascelles and hold transfers
      Unlessss you are wary of Lundys price drops for future plans
      As he will drop.

      I replaced him on team sheet news last weekend as I needed the set money for GWs ahead.
      But your Ings idea for example I would like to have done but now can’t

    3. General_Zod
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      B - I'd hold with that team.

  8. anish10
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    On WC which would you pick:

    A) Taylor
    B) Stephens

    Rest of my defence is :

    TAA James Fernandez Stevens

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      B

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      A and Gomez for James.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      B

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Taylor

  9. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    In a decent position I guess. 2FT 0 itb

    Hendo
    TAA Robo Lund
    KDB Salah Martial Alli
    Vardy Maupay ings
    (Martin, Cantwell, Rico, Williams)

    Something like Martial, Lund to Traore, Stevens sound decent? Or maybe Martial, Maupay to Fleck, Jimenez and hope that Lund plays this gw :/

    1. Relaxing
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Do you think Lund has any chance of a start this week?

  10. rnrd
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Bank the cash and sell Lundstram or keep?

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Don't do any transfer for bench.

  11. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone punting on a city or saints mid this week?
    I'm considering them as a Martial replacement. But good options are slim.

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Some are considering Mahrez if Sterling is out.

  12. Your Man With The Hair
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Any appetite for Newcastle defence for Lund replacements?
    Fernandez at 4.4m
    Solid fixtures after Arsenal.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Lascelles. He's club captain and 0.2m cheaper.

      1. Ritchies Magic Hat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Fernandez is the better footballer and seems to have the edge on Lascelles for bps

      2. B.D.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        +1

        1. B.D.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Lascelles would be my pick too, 0,2 itb can be valuable

    2. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Yes solid move

    3. George James
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      If I was going to WC i would consider lacelles and fernandez

      Cheap, nailed and great fixture in the blank 28

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        better still if they are knocked out tonight, then they have a home match against Villa in gw31

    4. NielsvanDelft
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I have Fernandez in my team, earned me 3 Bonus last week, like him for the bonus aspect

  13. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on how to use this FT?
    Save? Replace Soyuncu, Kelly, Maddison or Vardy?
    I'm holding Mané for now, as he will likely be back after the winter break

    Planning on doing Soyuncu/Kelly -> Lascelles next week

    McCarthy McGovern
    TAA Soyuncu Stevens Rico Kelly
    Salah Mané KDB Maddison Dendoncker
    Vardy DCL Ings

    1 FT, 0.2 ITB

    1. JohnRoss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I would hold the transfer. Having two next week gives you much more flexibility

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Thinking the same. Cheers!

    2. B.D.

    Maddison for who to replace...I have 2 FT and can extend the budged to 9mil. but not sure at all?

    1. Fit_to_drop
      5 months, 5 days ago

      There is so little out there at the mo, Fernandes at MU might be worth a punt.

    Would you wildcard this lot? Or can I get away with -4 (2 moves) 2.9itb

    Pope / Button
    Soy / TAA / Kelly / Rico / Lund
    Son / Salah / KDB / Grealish / Cantwell
    Vardy / DCL / Ings.

      No need for WC imo

    2. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Sort out your defense
      Kelly-Lund > Fernandez-Stevens

    3. merin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      WC? no
      Just do Lund -> Stevens

    4. Basil1977
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Kelly or Lund for Gomez

    Is going KWP over Stephens too risky?

    is anyone considering KWP or are you put off by the Valery factor?

    1. danishdynamite
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I went KWP on my WC last week, after having been set for Stephens

      Live a little. It's only til GW31 anyway

    Is there a chance lundstram starts? Surely wilder cant be this cold on him.

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Wilder doesn't pick his team based on FPL unfortunately.

        Sorry Chris, you can only pick three mate.

    2. GreennRed

      5 months, 5 days ago

      They're pushing for a Champions League spot. Better keeping them on their toes and fighting for positions rather than be guaranteed their place.

      • Has Moderation Rights

      There's a chance! I think he's more likely to start at home than away.. but definitely not a sure thing

    1 FT and 5m in the bank
    Any suggestions?
    Upgrade Perez or some of the front 3?

    Ryan Button

    TAA VvD Sidibe Lundstram Stephens

    Salah KDB Traore Perez Grealish

    Vardy Ings DCL

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Upgrade DCL, awful fixtures

      1. Ritchies Magic Hat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Button to Henderson, then play Ryan in 28?

  19. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Lundstram to someone who plays in 28:

    A) Fernandez - cheap
    B) Stephens - cheap but double up with McCarthy
    C) Doherty - expensive but substantial goal threat

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Will your replacement start in your 11 in GW28?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Ideally yeah - shame Doherty has Spurs away that GW

    2. adams_6
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Lascelles? BUR

    3. ppv
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Taylor or Lascelles

  20. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    I'm on WC and i'm 80 points behind leader in cash league.

    Rival has Son, KdB,Firmino,Ings...

    Would you bring Aguero and C him as differential? He wont have him this GW?

    Who else would you recomend as diff?

  21. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Every time I look at my team.
    Matt Ryan. He's there. Laughing at me.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      -4 him out? Blank 31 probably.

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Really? He's my only playing keeper so it'd be for McCarthy probably

    2. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      After 25 weeks I have finally ditched him as I'm on my WC - so he is GUARANTEED clean sheet and max bonus this week!

  22. Oooo Matron
    • 3 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Anything worth a - 4 here? Would ideally like Ings but hopefully it can wait a week.

    McCarthy
    TAA Stephens O'Connell
    Traore Mane Salah KDB
    Vardy DCL Jiminez

    Subs: Lundstrom, Maddison, Lascelles

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Nah

  23. dopellganger
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    1 FT

    Foster Button
    Trent Sidibe Lund Rico Soyuncu
    Kdb Salah Maddison Martial Cantwell
    Firmino Ings Jimenez

    Is it worth it doing Martial and Maddison to Son and Barnes for -4 ?

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Not for me

  24. Fishy
    • 11 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    When are most people using 2nd wildcard?
    Is gw 28 the popular option??

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      GW28 is close to the least popular.

      1. Fishy
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Hmmm free hit it is then

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 5 days ago

          Don't think FH will be popular then for FFS users either.
          All depends on your team.
          Surely you don't have 3 Sheff Utd players + 3 City + Grealish?

          1. Fishy
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 5 days ago

            No but feel team is a mess

    2. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      This GW. Lot of teams has two GWs at home in row and i can navigate blanks in GW 28.

      Also i had awful team

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I think many will play when DGW picture is clear

    4. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Planning to hold mine until after blank 31 at least

    5. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Probably gw29

    6. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      GW 32/33.

  25. Eriksen Maestro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Hey guys! What we thinking for captain?

    Salah probably rested at norwich with Madrid trip 3 days later and Pool surely champion?

    Thinking KDB/Vardy safer choice Thoughts?

    1. BNMC
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I think Aguero is by far the best captain. Me not owning him scares me.

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Salah won't be rested.

    3. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      No chance that Salah wont start that game. 15 days without game is too much and Klopp needs him in shape..

      Also im considering to C Aguero anyway

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Shouldn't need a rest after two weeks off.

  26. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Egan or O'Connell?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Egan marginally better goal threat. O'Connell better assist threat. Goal worth double an assist for a defender so Egan just about.

  27. lindeg
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    is sterling confirmed out?

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Nope but he will be benched anyway if hes fit

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Yes - out for next 2-3 weeks

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 5 days ago

        what is the source for that?

          1. lindeg
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 5 days ago

            cheers!

    3. ppv
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Can't see Aguero being benched if Sterling out

  28. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Traore and Jimenez rest incoming vs Norwich at home right? Game is 3-4 days before trip to Spain (game vs Espanol) and this is best oportunity for resting...

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Possible but rest less necessary with the winter break and no more FA cup fixtures

  29. La Roja
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Is this worth -4?

    Auba Maddison ➡ Aguero Lucas

    1. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Not for me

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      No

    3. ppv
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      If you capt Aguero and he outscores Salah

    4. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      No

  30. davies
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 5 days ago

    Grealish or Traore as fourth mid on wildcard?

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      Freakish.

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 5 days ago

        Predictively texted but fairly apt with the season he's having 🙂

    2. Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 5 days ago

      I'm thinking about selling Grealish for GW28 really. Fixtures are turning and there's that blank GW

    3. melvinmbabazi

      Traore
