Fit-again Pulisic waiting to fully deliver on some impressive underlying stats

Christian Pulisic (£6.9m) is our focus as we continue to assess the fit-again players who could make an impact in Fantasy Premier League upon its restart this month.

The American has been sidelined since New Year’s Day but was on the cusp of a return shortly before top-flight football was called to a halt in March.

It’s been a disjointed debut Premier League season for the former Borussia Dortmund winger, who initially failed to establish himself in the Chelsea starting XI before being handed eight successive starts in late autumn.

Pulisic now returns to bolster Frank Lampard’s options across the frontline, with the Blues pushing for a top-four spot.

Costing less than £7.0m and owned by just 3.4% of FPL managers (many of those will be inactive teams, too), the USA international is, at the very least, an attractively priced differential – although one who comes with caveats.

We delve into the numbers in the Members Area to further assess his credentials in the article below.

WHAT IS PULISIC’S FITNESS LATEST?

Pulisic benched as Lampard switches to a 3-4-3 against unchanged Spurs

Pulisic was last seen in Gameweek 21, when he lasted 65 minutes of Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Brighton and Hove Albion.

Missing the FA Cup third-round tie against Nottingham Forest with an issue with his adductor, the American was subsequently ruled out for several weeks with what his manager described as a “nasty injury”.

An early comeback in February was aborted as the problem proved to be more complicated than initially thought and it wasn’t until the beginning of March that Pulisic was ready to feature in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

Speaking ahead of Gameweek 29, just before COVID-19 stopped play, Lampard said:

We just had an in-house game here which Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] and Christian Pulisic took part in.

It’s great to see Christian get some minutes. He’s short of match fitness but it’s the first time the injury has felt at a level to get him on a big pitch in a relatively competitive match. That’s a big step forward, hopefully.

The unforeseen three-month hiatus has given Pulisic even more time to fully recharge, with the player himself saying of his injury in May:

I didn’t take it as seriously as I think I should have. It was one of those you felt you could do a lot of things but you try to push it that one extra step and realise it’s not ready yet.

It was very tough and frustrating going through times like that. I underestimated it and tried to get back as soon as I could because I just wanted to play so bad.

If anything, I’ve given myself a little more time to rest now and make sure that I’m 100 per cent fit. I’d say I’m fully recovered and ready to go as soon as we get back.

The winger has since been sighted in full training at Cobham, as preparations ramp up for the Blues’ fixture against Aston Villa.

WHOSE PLACE WILL HE TAKE?

      Re. the article, with the 5 sub gig, I can see Chelsea's young midfielders being jiggled about a heck of a lot. Your CHOs, RLCs, Mounts, Pullies, Bark et al may see a lot of 1 and 2 pointers.

      1. mad_beer ✅
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 3 hours ago

        I expect a lot of 1 pointers from non premium players over the next 6 GWs. And a lot of crying. It's going to be great!

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          29 days, 3 hours ago

          One dilemma is, I expect more defensive errors and fewer clean sheets; on the other hand centre backs are more likely to play over 60 mins, and premium mids/strikers are more likely to be rested and rotated. There's gonna be MONSTEr hauls of 1 and 2 pointers. Ha ha ha!

      I’m betting on Chelsea playing well again after a long rest. They looked tired at one point and struggled with their system. Tammy should get more opportunities if the team is fresh. If not then a switch to Rashford makes sense.

      Pep, Jose and Klopp are very clever. I expect they will have figured out creative ways to prepare the team plus they have more resources than the small clubs.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 3 hours ago

        That can apply to a host of teams. But Chelsea will want to be hanging onto 4th spot. United and Spuds will want to crash it. Blades and Wolves will fancy their chances too. The "small clubs" at the bottom will fight tooth and nail to avoid relegation. For me, I'm avoiding the beach-party sides, the likes of Burnley ('scept for Pope as back-up), Palace, Everton, Saints, Toon.

        1. The Mandalorian
          • 7 Years
          29 days, 2 hours ago

          Chelsea started well this season so I'm hoping they can repeat those performances with fresh players.
          The small clubs have been the worst in the German league. IMO Before you can fight tooth and nail you need to be adequately prepared for the season.

      Trying once more...
      Just did a fh draft with fun the only motive. Any suggestions on it more than welcome!
      Hederson (or Reina)
      O connel, Mings, Targett (or Stevens)
      Sterling, KDB, Pepe, Ozil, Grealish
      Aguero, Auba

      1. DannyDrinkVodka

          Perfect, triple up with Lundy in the back and you've got my team

            • 4 Years

            Perfect because he's nearly got the same as you ?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 1 hour ago

          Pepe, Ozil - Neither anywhere near my free hit team (Grealish better option than both)

          Free Hit givens
          Aguero, Aubamayang, KDB, Grealish/McGinn, at least 2 sheff utd at the back

          Single Gameweek players I'd want to keep
          TAA
          Salah
          Fernandes

          I'm thinking Ederson for my triple up on City, might even go triple Sheff utd and lob in a Mousset.

          Not touching Villa's back line, if I did it would be Target

            So you are suggesting not to go full dgw crazy and keep a few sgw players... that was my initial (sensible) approach with taa and Fernandes in and possibly salah. But it seems this is the only dgw available (which sucks as i can't play bb) so why not to go a bit crazy and have fun with it? But yes ozil and pepe can easily change which can lead to no villa defence too.

        Christ why are FPL taking so long to update the site and add the extra gameweeks given that the fixtures were confirmed last week. There is still no 'my team' tab showing on the site.

          The site doesn't need to be open for you to plan. There is literally no rush. It'll be open when it's open

          Ah, Gooberman. If you're not complaining on FISO you're complaining here. Maybe one day you'll try not complaining, just for a bit of variety.

        A lot of people seem to think the new 5 sub rule means there will be a lot of pre 60 minute subs but I don't see why. Managers can still only make subs 3 times so won't want to be using them up early. I don't expect a lot of difference, other than a few more double substitutions after 60 mins. Teams with a lot to play for will still want their best team on the pitch as long as they are fit, although subs might get used more towards the end of the game, to give more players a rest when the result is a foregone conclusion

        1. potatoace'scott talent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 2 hours ago

          I'm not so sure.
          I'm reading a lot of content that Bundesliga have seen a significant increase in half time substitutions.

          Are their rules the same ?

          1. Wild Rover
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            29 days, 2 hours ago

            Depends on how things are going I guess. For example Leverkusen made 3 changes at 46 mins because they were getting thrashed, Bayern didn't make any before 62 mins. I won't have anyone in my team likely to be on the end of a drubbing.

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              29 days, 2 hours ago

              What I can see happening is poorly-coordinated defences getting stretched and breaking late on in games when fitness counts. The premium mids and strikers who would fill their boots have been hauled off, leaving your Nketiah's to clean up.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 2 hours ago

          “... but I don't see why ...”. Because a lot of managers on here watch Bundesliga?

          1. Wild Rover
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            29 days, 2 hours ago

            Only 6 teams made a sub before 60 mins this weekend and as some were very early I guess it was because of injury rather than the new rules.

        3. The Mandalorian
          • 7 Years
          29 days, 2 hours ago

          The 5 sub rule will surely benefit the big squads

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 2 hours ago

          We might see a lot more earlier subs by teams who have little to play for (luckily quote a lot still do). The fixture list is fairly congested.

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            And those involved in cup matches.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 1 hour ago

            is it that congested though?

            for teams out of the fa cup its one game a week.

            1. Paul Psychic Octopus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              28 days, 14 hours ago

              Villa 4 games in 10 days. Burnley 3 games in 7 days. That's just two teams fro example.

              I would call that congested.

        How am I looking? I came back to my team to see Giroud in it. Probably doesn’t make sense any more

        Pope/McCarthy

            If they do, does that mean I could use by BB chip? Aren't you technically allowed to use any chip in the first week of a new season normally?

            'Fit-again Pulisic waiting to fully deliver on some impressive underlying stats'

            He's only fit because he hasn't played. He won't last long

              Impressive Stats and Pulisic don't correlate. He let me down big-time this season when I believed the stats. I wouldn't touch him with a barge pole. Don't promote Pulisic in articles, you'll have members contacting you for compensation. 😀

                There's an FPL asset in there waiting to get out (so long as he keeps getting in and around the six-yard box, chances are the attacking returns will follow) - but yeah, not sure I fully trust him yet.

                  Agree!

                  After watching him score that hattrick I bought him immediately. I thought he was incredible. Picked up 2 goals in the next 2 games and was looking impressive on both the eye and stats.

                  There's a good player there, and at 21 he has time on his side. The only worry is the muscular injuries.

              True that, I’m a bit more interested in RLC but CHE midfield will be heavily rotated. It’s a Pep-roulette with much lower ceiling

            Its reached that point where they shd give unlimited transfers for simply not opening the game yet, let alone the 3 month gap

                  3 of each.

                  Granted I haven't drafted a team yet so it might not be feasible, but that's the aim.

              Yes Grealish is probably the only one worth having and he's playing against Sheffield United in one of his games and most FH teams have 2 or 3 of their D.

            That's what I mean, I'm thi king of going without rather than just shoehorning three Villa for the sake of it.

              Three Villa assets?!? Graelish naturally, McGinn perhaps (rather not), but who else and why?

                I'd definitely get Samatta and Targett over McGinn if I was going to get 3 Villa, but probably only Grealish should be enough.

                  I think Chelsea are capable of putting four of five in against Villa, I might just go with two Chelsea, Alonso and a MF, might take a punt on Pulisic, was thinking of Willian until I read he's out of contract and hasn't even signed a short extension.

            Virtual FPL

            Pope
            TAA / Alonso / Laporte
            Salah / Sané / Fernandes / Traore
            Vardy / Jota / Ayew

            Button // Targett / Hayden / Ward

            Pope has some horrific fixtures till season-end. Transfer to:
            A) Henderson - EVE (H), WHA (A), BOU (H), CRY (A), ARS (A), SOU (H), BRI (A)
            B) Guaita - LEI (A), BOU (H), NEW (A), SHU (H), NOR (A), ARS (H), MCI (A)

            Bench who:
            1) Ayew - LEI (A)

              I'm been looking at the same two Pope replacements and am thinking A, Sheff Utd have the forth best D in the game and like me you have no coverage for their good run of fixtures.

              I suppose it makes sense to have 12 DGW players on a FH.........would you rather:

              A) Triple up on SHU defence (Lundy + O'Connell + Egan)
              B) Double up on Villa (Reina + Targett)

                No. See the post above but if the best option involves bringing Lundstram in, who wasn't starting, doesn't seem worth having all your eggs in one basket.

                (Obviously team selections may be completely left-field when it first starts back up, but I'd be more tempted to spread the risk and limit it to two)

                  I have two options I'm considering currently:

                  1) Henderson, Bellerin, Doherty, Fleck, Stevens.
                  2) Leno, Baldock, Egan, Ozil, Stevens.

                  Doherty vs Sheffield triple up basically. Leaning towards 1 as i'm top of my mini league and don't need to be too aggressive. Would prefer Ozil over Fleck though.

              Pretty sure I'm not going to FH. Best use of 2 FTs here?

              Leno
              TAA, Lundstram, Egan
              Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Grealish
              Aubameyang, Jimenez, DCL

              Pope; Maguire, Hayden, Hanley.

              0.0 ITB

              I'm thinking maybe DCL and Pope to Nketiah and Ederson and play BB.

                        Oh sorry read wrong!

                        In thase case, DCL & Salah to Mahrez & Jesus. Shame u can't get Aguero. I think City treble is essential.

                        I would recomend FHing though. Sheff Utd, Villa and City all have bad fixtures after double, meaning treble ups will suffer. Plus I can't see a better opportunity

                          I might WC the week after so not really concerned with having those players in my team.

                          I like the Jesus pick. Will consider but still think Salah could be one of the highest scoring players this GW.

                  Just don't see the value in playing the chip when I already have the key DGW players. The only one I don't have that I might want is Aguero.

              For a FH

              Would you prefer A or B

              (a) (VVD & Baldock) plus (Aubameyang)

                Also, they sometimes play 352 against low block sides (e.g Burnley). They used this strategy against Villa, won 6-1 with Jesus and Aguero getting 30 points between them.

                I want to go a bit different with my team where possible but not sure Jesus is it.

                Feel like KDB is just to good to ignore, despite him being so high owned.

                A big no for me.

                You missed the boat, had to buy them before the update started 😉

              Anybody else feeling a distinct lack of excitement about the re-start from a fantasy perspective?

              We've been robbed of the most exciting part of the season - the BGW's & several DGW's to follow. This is traditionally the part of the season where I can accelerate up the rankings and record some monster scores (I got 137 in one DGW a few seasons ago using BB with 15 DGWers).

              Most of my ML rivals have used up their chips, and some did very well out of TC chip. I was patiently waiting for the moment to unleash mine. That moment will never come now!

              (Not blaming anyone by the way, just having a little moan whilst I'm on my lunch break)

                  Well, not being funny, but you would be wouldn't you.

                    I would be anyway to be honest! Missed it a lot.

                    Think most people who said they didn't care about it coming back have also kind of u-turned on that given how long it's been away.

                    Not saying everyone has to be excited but I'd say many, many will be.

                Kinda, yeah. Always fun to use the chips though, so there's that.

              Website updating so the unlimited transfer debate to be finally end.

              Hope they do the right thing and play their part in giving back to the community

                They owe us nothing, the game is free

                  Time is money. We have invested lots of time and without us they'd not be making money off the game

                    Moreover they know very well people have money riding on this game

                      Whatever they do, we're all still going to play next season

                        Yea doing the 'right thing' in this case as nothing to do with their buisness. Makes no difference to them

                      I'm sure those tight Money League leaders would really appreciate their opponents given free Wildcards

              Predictions?

              Unlimited transfers with a deadline before the actual deadline so u can use chips e.g free hit

              1. Nightcrawler
                • 1 Year
                29 days, 9 mins ago

                Youll be allowed to use that chip even if u get unlimited transfers

                1. Coys96
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  29 days, 8 mins ago

                  How? Surely u then wouldn't be able to use unlimited transfers in preparation for after gw39?

                  1. Nightcrawler
                    • 1 Year
                    29 days, 6 mins ago

                    Ull be reverted back to the team u currently have right now. Its what logic says IF they go with unlimited transfers which is an entirety different debate

                  IN GW1 u can't use FH, i think it will be like that. Unfortunately..

                    • 1 Year
                    29 days, 6 mins ago

                    Gw 1 and this are different. U dint have a team to go back to in gw 1

                    1. Coys96
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                      29 days, 4 mins ago

                      What i dont get is how u can use a free hit and unlimted transfers in the same gameweek. Surely you'd have 2 teams?

                        29 days, 4 mins ago

                        I think you'd forfeit the unlimited transfers essentially.

                          This

                • 9 Years
                29 days, 9 mins ago

                I don't agree with it fully but unlimited transfers or game reversed to state of play before it froze

                1. Coys96
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  29 days, 8 mins ago

                  could be both

                29 days, 8 mins ago

                The latest update on the website kind of suggests that it will just continue as normal, only in that it said unused chips will remain and didn't mention anything about unlimited transfers.

                As you were I'd say.

                it's not updated yet

                I'd assume if they are going to make any changes such as a free chip they'd have communicated it first through social media. But you never know.
