Kane and Son set to start as post-FPL deadline injury news begins to emerge

Six Premier League managers held their pre-Gameweek 30+ press conferences on Thursday, with some key quotes and injury updates emerging from the various conference calls.

It’s too late for Fantasy Premier League managers to do anything about this fresh information, of course, but those playing the Sky game can still tinker with their sides ahead of Friday’s action.

We’ll round up the main headlines from today’s virtual media gatherings in the article below.

Tottenham Hotspur

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko will all start against Manchester United on Friday, with that trio and Steven Bergwijn having all recovered from injuries during the lockdown period.

Speaking to the media, Mourinho said:

Kane, Son and Sissoko, they recover and they are ready to play.

I can tell you, no problem, [Kane] is going to start the game. Does Harry have 90 minutes, 80, 70, 60 [in him]? I don’t know. I think only the game will tell us that.

The three players who had surgery – Sissoko, Son and Kane – yes, they are going to start.

The Spurs boss added that he was unsure if Giovani Lo Celso will be able to start tomorrow’s match after some fitness issues but is hopeful that he can feature in some capacity.

Japhet Tanganga (back) and Dele Alli (suspended) miss out.

Manchester United

Rashford plays down injury worries after latest FPL double-digit haul

United will be down two back-up centre-halves in north London on Friday but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer otherwise reported a clean bill of health, saying:

We have two players, Phil Jones and Axel [Tuanzebe] will miss this game and the start. Let’s see how bad they are. Apart from that the rest of the squad is fit and available.

On the fit-again Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, Solskjaer added:

If selected, Marcus and Paul… they’ve been out for a long, long period but they are available. How long they’re going to play for, let’s see.

Norwich City

Why there is still more to come from Lundstram despite latest blank

Norwich City were handed a triple injury blow on Thursday as Daniel Farke revealed that Grant Hanley (hamstring), Sam Byram (hamstring) and Christoph Zimmermann (back) will miss the rest of the season.

Marco Stiepermann has returned to training having self-isolated following a positive coronavirus test but won’t be considered for the visit of Southampton.

Burnley

Ashley Barnes (hernia), Chris Wood (Achilles) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) will all miss the trip to Manchester City on Monday.

That trio may be sidelined for a little while longer, too, with Sean Dyche saying:

They definitely won’t make this early period of these games.

We’re really working hard with them and you’re going into the world of keeping your fingers crossed when you’ve got so many games in such a short space of time.

You only have to miss a couple of weeks and you could miss five or six games.

Watford

Watford have three definite absentees ahead of the visit of Leicester City, with Nigel Pearson telling reporters:

Isaac Success has ruptured his Achilles. Deulofeu won’t be available this season, he’s got a serious knee injury with his cruciate. Janmaat won’t be available this season either. But everybody else more or less is available.

Pearson confirmed that Troy Deeney was available for selection following his belated return to full-contact training.

Leicester City

Ayoze Perez and Ryan Bennett were both passed fit on Thursday, although Brendan Rodgers did reveal that Dennis Praet (calf) was a concern ahead of the trip to Watford.

Rodgers said:

Both those players [Perez and Bennett] have been back in training this week, so they’ll be available. Dennis Praet is a doubt, but we’ll see tomorrow if he’s going to make the squad or not. If he doesn’t then he should be fine for Tuesday.

The rest

We’ll hear from Jurgen Klopp on Friday ahead of the Merseyside derby but the Liverpool boss has already been speaking to the Reds’ own website and sounded fairly positive when asked about his side’s injury situation, saying:

In the moment, nobody really is ruled out for Sunday, but we have to see. A few trained more, a few trained less, most trained all [sessions], so that’s good news and in the end we will have a good team on the pitch, 100%.

Four teams have already been in Gameweek 30+ action, of course, and there were plenty of injury updates to report from the respective managers’ post-match interviews.

John Fleck (knock) and John O’Connell (knee) missed out on Sheffield United’s goalless draw with Aston Villa but the Blades may have one of those players back on Sunday, with Chris Wilder saying:

Fleck, we’ve got great reports that he trained nearly full tilt so he’ll train tomorrow [Thursday] and he’ll be available for Sunday. Fingers crossed he comes through a clearance session.

Jack [O’Connell], we’ve got a decision to make. We’ve got a specialist report on it but we’re hopeful that it’ll be short-term. He isn’t out for the season just yet, we’ll look at it, but if he is, then we’ll adjust and adapt.

Dean Smith said of Villa’s absentees, meanwhile:

Bjorn Engels has an Achilles issue. He’s not going to be around for the next week or two at least. Frederic Guilbert’s the same, he’s injured. Danny Drinkwater should be back training at the end of the week. He picked up an injury against Leicester last week.

Pablo Mari (ankle/calf) and Granit Xhaka (ankle) were forced off early in Arsenal’s defeat at Manchester City, with Mikel Arteta saying afterwards:

They are getting assessed at the moment then we will know something more tomorrow morning. Pablo’s one didn’t look very good to be fair.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported bad news on Thursday evening, tweeting:

City announced on Thursday afternoon that Eric Garcia has been released from hospital after suffering an injury during the win over the Gunners.

The defender will be monitored in the coming days, ahead of a return to training and competitive action.

Pep Guardiola hinted at changes against Burnley on Monday in his post-match interview.

    I see there were no price changes so I probably rushed into this FH too quickly But I do like this first draft. Any ideas to improve it please? 0.0 ITB for changes

    Patricio

    TAA Doherty Maguire

    Mane Son Bruno Barnes

    Kane Vardy Jota

    Martin Lascelles JRobinson Guendouzi

      Looks solid but KDB could punish you. How do you think MUN will to against SHU? I'm thinking to swerve them on FH because it will differentiate my team from wildcarders and SHU will likely be hard to break down.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I don’t really trust utd who knows how they will play. Bruno ownership is why I am getting him I definitely won’t be rushing into 2 attackers regardless of fixture.
        KDB is in my normal team so just missing him for the one week - away to Che is no walk in the park so I’ll risk it.

          Against that Chelsea defence?

            Like Swiss cheese mate

              So if wanted say KDB, who goes to make way probably Kane and another midfielder that’s the other thing I don’t like about KDB in FH. Might seem to simplistic but just going for it with 11 that have good home fixtures.

    WC team, BB gw 32, FH left.

    Pope, quita,
    Doherty, azpi/James, aurier, Fernandez, saiss
    Son, Fernandes, martial, sarr, mount
    Auba, Kane, Jimenez

    BB gw 32
    FH whenever
    O itb

    Hope I can run with majority of this team until season ends. Auba and Kane can easily switched on for rashford or vardy if need be.

    Thoughts please?

      downgrade guaita to upgrade aurier to awb/maguire

      1. Soto Ayam
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Quita will be downgraded after BB in gw 33. Kinda like aurier, especially against West ham. He ain't there for his defensive qualities!

    Rumours that price changes have been removed from the game ? Is that true or not? Cheers

        No sir

            This was expected Torres. t is a shame the scout platform encourages such posts. "Trump"ed" up fake news that if turns out to be right encourages more crap. I know FF Scout can do little about it but team line up leaks are the worst of all. Covid-19, Hillary Clinton Russian love affairs, dangerous gossip on facebook shows how human mind works in negative ways sometimes.

      The blind monkey that moves prices is busy playing other games in his Zoo habitat. He will soon wander back to his computer to create chaos in FPL

    4. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I doubt it. Likely everyone is using WC, FH so limited actual transfers to affect prices yet

      1. moment
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        This. The only people making transfers now (as opposed to Sunday/Monday) are on Free Hit or Wildcard.

          You’re missing one crucial person, the most important, causals

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years

      Add the word “unsupported” to the start of the OP & it reads better 🙂

  4. ZTF
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Pope (3.9)
    TAA Gomez Doherty (C.Taylor, Williams)
    Grealish Mane KDB Martial (Foden)
    Jota Jimenez Rashford

    On a wc. 0.2 ITB. Thoughts?

    1. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Brave man going without Bruno

    2. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Very nice 2 wolves up top is brave but could work.
      How long are you going to keep Grealish for I don’t like the fixtures at all. could you downgrade him a bit to go Martial to Bruno?

  5. Disturbed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Better option to complete this wc attack?

    Salah kdb Bruno son xxxx
    Jimmy nketiah xxxx

    A. Rashford cantwell
    B. Tammy Barnes
    C. Vardy cantwell

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Probably A on fixtures. Don’t know if I will be able to trust 2 utd attackers when I come to WC.
      Mainly A cause through to the end Lei only have ok fixtures.

      1. Disturbed

    1. FALSE PROFIT

      Nice side. I just think the bench, will no doubt be needed is a little wanting

      1. Disturbed
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        You think? Cantwell is a starter and robinson seems to be in till o connell is back. Nketiah is a bit suspect for sure. Thanks.

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I think your bench is perfect really - as long as O’Connell isn’t back soon

          1. Disturbed
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Thanks pillars

    2. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Identical to mine. All 15 players.
      Looks great!

  7. Disturbed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Just realised ddg and Taylor give you 0.6m spare cash over pope and Maguire. No brainer?

    1. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Pretty clever imho. Might steal this one.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah it’s not like Maguire is a massive attacking threat.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Well his forehead is massive so he should be but is not.

    3. I Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      It's a tough one in my opinion. Pope probably has the edge on De Gea in terms of saves and bonus, and Maguire definitely has more attacking threat than Taylor.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I had a look at this in the projections area and the Pope Maguire combo is worth an extra 8 points or so over the next 5 games. Don't know how much to read into that though.

    5. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Two downgrades

  8. Wee Jinky
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    First Draft W/C Team:

    Lloris (Martin)
    van Dijk / Lascelles / Maguire ( Lundstram, Egan)
    Salah / Fernandes / De Bruyne / Son (Guendouzi)
    Jiménez / Rashford / Abraham

    Might change Lloris to Patricio

    Thoughts?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Nice yes I would make the keeper move for sure.

    2. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      2 Sheffield utd Defenders is pushing it evens for the bench With the fixtures they have. Obviously Lundstram can do anything but look at swapping Egan. At that price point I don’t know who else is available.

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        He could swap Lascelles with Fernandez and get a 4.3 maybe.

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Best side I have seen so far.
      Lloris different and could really do well with fixtures.
      Like centre back choices due to gametime.
      Lund for sure but Egan with fixtures and their performance against Villa puts me off a little.
      Guendouzi tells me you have zero ITB.

      1. pricycle
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Saiss at 4.6

  9. FALSE PROFIT

    1 month, 16 days ago

    Guys, give your views on any "very special" players making their mark this season. Someone who could go on to greatness.
    The lad Gilmour catches my eye. Ndidi is probably the main most improved player. Not so many this season as last. I might post this later when more experts are available. (smile)

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A few from our academy show promise. Smallbone looks to have a decent part to play next season, and maybe even for the rest of this season, having just signed his first pro contract last week. Jake Vokins starting to look like a very good left back, maybe even Bertrand's backup next season. Both scored in our FA Cup game vs Huddersfield on their debuts.

      And of course Mikey Obafemi, our little Irish wonderkid. He's gotten in the Golden Boy shortlist this year, and he's currently seen as Shane Long's backup/rotation partner. Quick as a whistle, intelligent runner, just needs to work on his fitness and finishing more.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Mason Greenwood

      He's going to be an awesome CF !

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        A touch of bias I think Amey. But I can agree with you to some point.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Biased yeah 🙂
          But i have seen him play this season many times. He's got goalscoring instincts.

  10. Albrightondknight
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    So any suggestionS for a 4.1 defender for the second bench spot on my FH team currently it’s Jack Robinson. Is there any other options at this price?

    1. Soto Ayam
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Hanley?

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Shame the Spurs defender has an injury. Robinson could be there for the duration but not impressed with his team TBH.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Would have been perfect sounds like a nasty injury.

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Apparently a stress fracture but not so serious as Jose is talking about assessing him before tonight's game

    3. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Thanks - Hanley is showing as red flagged?
      Can’t see an option hopefully someone will emerge during the current GW.

      1. jdp219
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Hanley mentioned as out for the season in the article.

  11. jdp219

    Filling in spots on WC (template elsewhere):

    1) Doherty / Son / Tammy, Greenwood
    2) AWB / Sarr / Rashford, DCL/Pukki
    3) AWB / Sarr / Rash, Tammy

    Thanks in advance!

  12. Brxdleydennis
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 16 days ago

    I had planned on using my wildcard for the next GW. And I have gone a bit OTT with the attack as you can imagine and this has resulted me in being a bit short at the back but I think my defence is capable enough really.

    My first initial first draft was as follows;

    Pope, Button
    Lascelles, Taylor, Doherty, Robinson, Simpson
    KDB, Mane, Son, Fernandes, Cantwell
    Kane, Jota, Rashford

    Looking back at it now I could easily downgrade Cantwell to Guendouzi and spend the extra money on my defence to imrpove Simpson or Robinson if he doesn't play, but any advice will be much appreciated. Also comment on what your drafts are looking like.

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      It looks good and that slight imbalance is obvious as you will never start Cantwell when you have those 7 so yeah making him fodder makes sense to me for a defence upgrade but it’s not critical for this week.

  13. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Rashford was involved in 19 goals in 22 pl games before Bruno arrived. (14g 5a)

    Imagine how good his returns could be with Bruno's creativity behind him.

    Is Rashford (8.8) one of your first names on wildcard given uniteds great run of fixtures?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I think Martial is more likely to reap the benefits from Bruno. I will wait to see the first game tonight and assess.

    2. I Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Although quite a few of those goals were penalties which he may have lost to Fernandes he's still nailed in my team.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Oh this is interesting point. How many of Rashford goals was penalties?

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Interestingly of the 5 penalties Rashford has scored in he league his season he was actually fouled for 4 of them

        Brandon Williams was fouled for the most recent vs Norwich - all of the others (Chelsea, Leicester, Spurs, Man City) he won himself - so were Bruno to have stepped up instead (had he been there), Marcus was still getting assist points for them

        Throw in the fact that he wouldn’t have been deducted the 4 points for the two pens he missed (the other Norwich game Dan James was fouled & Palace after McTominay was fouled) and he’s back effectively level on points vs his penalty-taking self

        Not to mention the fact that he’d be playing in a dramatically improved attacking unit with Bruno on board... the kid should be up to his knees in attacking returns for the next few seasons all being well...

        Bruno & Rashford look a dream FPL combo pretty much “covering” DFK’s & spot kicks for the reds i reckon

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Great info. Cheers MBP

        2. Albrightondknight
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          More of this is what we need here. Subjective opinions like mine don’t count for much gotta it back it up. Good stuff.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      100% this - Rashford, like every other Utd attacker, should be elevated a notch with Brunandes there

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I had a feeling that Rashford must be outscoring Martial by many points this season. But it's not the case.
      Fact that, the pens are now off to Bruno & Martial gets additional CS + Goal point i am going for Martial instead of Rashford.

      Both will do well though with creative genius behind them

  14. Wee Jinky
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Second Draft W/C Team:

    Patricio (Martin)
    van Dijk / Boly / Maguire ( Lascelles, Taylor)
    Salah / Fernandes / De Bruyne / Son (Cantwell)
    Jiménez / Rashford / Abraham

    ITB = 0.0

    Thoughts?

    1. Albrightondknight

      Yeah that’s even better. I meant to suggest Taylor when you posted earlier.
      With Boly there now maybe Loris is an option again? 🙂
      And you also got the upgrade to Cantwell so the tweaks look good.

        Patricio is 5.2 Lloris 5.3

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

      I'd get DCL for Tammy
      & Doherty/Taa for Boly/VVd

    Liking for some more opinions of this first draft FH
    Thanks

    Patricio

    TAA Doherty Maguire

    Mane Son Bruno Barnes

    Kane Vardy Jota

    Martin Lascelles JRobinson Guendouzi

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years

      Dominic and Jimenez might be better than Jota and Vardy.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thanks will look at that. Who would you captain out of that lot?

      2. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Hang on who is Dominic ?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          DCL

          1. Albrightondknight
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            The 100 day break did me no good.
            Thanks I was thinking Solanke and that didn’t work or seem right 🙂

              Lol
              Even solanke himself wouldn't pick himself 😀

    Black Lives Matter, first goal scorer. What odds will I get?

    Seeing a lot of people calling SHU a juicy fixture for MUN. Is it really?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Based on Aston villa performance, yes.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No Henderson is a massive loss to SHU

      No coincidence they conceded 3 at home to Man Utd last time they played this season (they’ve only conceded 10 goals in total in their other 14 home games this season)

      And that was a version of Man Utd far inferior to the current Brunandez revolution led team plus its at old Trafford

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Wow I forgot that. Why is he not flagged in the game? Ok yes I think they wait til he finish games for this week first .

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yep still mid-GW!

    3. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Looked a bit more suspect on corners than would have been expected. Main reason I think I will go Maguire over AWB.

    4. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Definitely. Villa were denied 2 clear cut goals by 2 brilliant saves from Henderson.. He will be a huge miss vs united.

      Despite Sheffield united getting so many cs they still allow so many big chances often saved by Henderson

    5. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No Hendo, potentially no O'Connell, and most importantly, no Fleck. Midfield looked translucent vs Villa, really struggled against Douglas Luiz, McGinn and Jack. Imagine what would happen vs Bruno and Pogba,

      1. waldo666
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        No Fleck? So I am falsely clinging onto hope that he will get me some points against Newcastle? Thought he was just touch and go for the Villa match?

    6. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I am debating whether to get Tony this GW or next ..
      Will see how United play tonight vs Spurs and then decide. I think SHU will get beaten easily next week though

    Thoughts on these options for next GW.
    WC, BB left.

    Pope (WAT).
    TAA (CRY), Maguire (SHU), Saiss (BOU).
    KDB (che), Fernandes (SHU), Salah (CRY) (c), Barnes (BHA).
    Auba (sou) (vc), Jota (BOU), DCL (nor).
    Stek, Holgate (nor), Dendoncker (BOU), Stephens (ARS).
    1 ft, 3.2m ITB.

    1. Save the FT. BB later possibly the week after or else after the WC.

    2. Stek-> Allison + just Bench Boost next GW.
    Allison, Holgate, Stephens, Dendoncker for BB.
    WC then in 32 or 33 and just focus on 12/13 starters instead of BB.

    Please help me discover my next best option to remedy.

    Henderson Leno
    TAA Boly Doherty Laporte Lundstrum
    Grealish Sterling KDB Cantwell Saka
    Ings Jimenez Rashford

    i preferably want some manutd and spurs coverage. Or should i just be going for liverpool?

    1. Eugeniekwh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Raz to Son this GW

      Then downgrade one defender & upgrade saka/cantwell to Bruno next week

      Just a thought but have you checked on the desktop version? My android app shows as WC unavailable when I go to make transfers but I do have it and it's available if I go on the desktop route

      1. Trophé Mourinho

        Checking gw history will instantly tell when it was used. Shoudla cheked that before hand :/

    Hows this for a WC team? 4 at the back
    Pope
    Saiss - Egan - Basham - TAA
    KDB - Son - Fernandes - Salah
    Kane - Jimi
    (Nketiah, Guendouzi, Lascelles, Button) 0.1 in the bank, bench horrific I know. Any suggestions?

    1. Amey

      Imbalanced team.
      SHU fixtures are awful now. Double up ?? Nahh

    Which combo would you prefer?

    A. DDG + Taylor + Abraham
    B. Pope + Maguire + DCL

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years

      B

  23. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    WC in GW 33

    1 FT | Leno Button | 1.0 ITB
    Boly Saiss Egan Fernandez Taylor
    Sterling* KdB* Bruno Grealish Fodder
    Aubameyang Vardy Jimenez

    A) Sterling -> Mane/Salah
    B) Sterling + KdB -> Mane/Salah + Son (-4)

    Advisable to take a hit for Son?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I like B

  24. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 16 days ago

    What scores is everyone on so far?
    How many you got left, and what do you think you might finish on/be happy with?

    Epic 74 points so far, 16 remaining (if I cant captain as 2).
    Considering im only 26 off a ton, I think I can get 130/140, maybe up to 160/180 if im super lucky and Sterling captain pays off.

    1. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      81points from 12= 6.75. 15 players to go x 6.75= 101.25.
      101.25 +81= 182.25 points. Easy.

      1. Trophé Mourinho

      Very good
      I am 44 with 11 to go.
      Going to get punished for no chips but i knew it beforehand

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Yea a bit, but 44 isnt bad. You can still hit 100 and that will always be decent

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          I can do well if SHU don't keeo a CS second game & my differentials work out.
          Let's see

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I got majorly lucky tbh, triple Blades defence, and double Villa defence (including Nayland lol). Not expecting any more luck points from my Villa, and idk if Blades will get a CS vs Newcastle, maybe.
            Hopefully Pepe starts next, and Arsenal actually do something :/

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Wow
              5CS in one game is stuff of dreams !
              Nice.

              I think Newcastle should score vs SHU. And we always knew City game was not game to expect anything out of Arsenal players so ...

              1. Trophé Mourinho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Yea crazy, im lucky to ever get 5 cs in a normal GW let alone 1 game.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yes
          That SHU CS killed the chance I guess.
          I am already 14 points behind the cutoff ...

          Fingers crossed .. 🙂

            You at least can be proud you got this far. I went out in GW 2 😀

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 16 days ago

              It's all about luck man 🙂

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      43pts with 16 to go, I guess anything around 80-100 would be a decent finish.

      You never know, might even struggle to cross 60pts 😆

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Why only one SHu defender Holmes ??
        I suffered because of that only ! Bit you had chance to triple up man

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Due to the rule, had no plans to get even one but due to lack of options in defence, sacrificed Mount for Lundstram.

          If there wasn't any restrictions, I would have gone with triple SHU as well 😀

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Sh.t
            M so sorry buddy.
            I forgot about it. From next season throw away that rule & show the world shackles free Holmes 😀

            1. Holmes
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Will probably take a break, not feeling the fun and excitement anymore.

                Wow
                I hope not 😀
                If you're not feeling fun though, it's right. Comeback with vengeance !

                GL with whatever you decide man

    4. Warby84

    5. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      55 with aguero (c) so 50 more points for aguero's 5 goal haul and then whatever the other 14 can get as a bonus 😉

    6. Disturbed
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      66 with 15 to play. Just need a sterling hatty and kun and kdb red cards.

    7. Phil's Stamps
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Snap. 74 with 16 to play (inc captain), dreamland for a chancer like myself.

  25. Saro0808

    Leno
    Williams Lund Baldock
    Sterling Kdb Martial Grealish
    Auba Kun Jimi
    Bench : Reina Basham Rico D.luiz
    1ft Bank:0.0m
    1) Auba/Kun (most proly Kun due to fixtures and rotation) to rashford.
    2) Basham to saiss
    3) Hold
    4) any other suggestions.

    Any predictions for utd spurs?

    Man Utd definitely did go through that dark period with the walloping by Arsenal, followed by the Anfield embarassment & the Burnely debacle - but coming into the game utd now seem to be stringing together a seriously impressive run - particularly defensively:

    - 30.2 XGc for the season (only bettered by Liverpool, City, Chelsea - all on 28-ish)
    - 5 cleansheets in their last 8 games (that sample actually includes playing Liverpool, City & Chelsea! i.e. three of the top 4 attacks in the league... They've also already kept a cleansheet vs Lecicester this season who complete the top four attacks in the league)
    - 4 cleansheets, and only one goal conceded in their last 5 games - that's seriously elite level defensive output & doesn't happen by accident - obviously lots of hard work on the training ground with Mike Phelan finally starting to pay dividends
    - Martial has actually now started 19 of the last 20 league games - that's more than your Mane's, your Salah's, your De Bruyne's, and your Vardy's - never let it be said that the lad doesn't move heaven & earth to get himself onto the pitch - no matter how questionable his body language can be whilst out there
    - Injuries are also easing - who would have thought that Scott McTominay's return would be more important to the team than Paul Pogba, Tommers is fast developing into a super midfield hatchet man, Rashford back, Pogba back, although whether he goes straight into the team is still up in the air

    Be interesting to see what Jose has up his sleeve for his old club

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Hmm, I dont have players form either team and I support Spurs so my opinion probably skewed.
      But I think its Man U's game to lose, my gut says a Spurs CS somehow. Maybe 1-0 or 0-1

    2. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      2-1 Utd

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Easy victory for us mate.
      Is it even a question ? 😉

      I have Son Bruno & need points from both of them. Especially from Sonny boy. So i hope a 2-3 win for United 😀

    4. De Gea is GOAT

      0-0

    5. Van der Faart

      5-4 to Spurs. Son with 5 goals, Bruno with 4.

    How many points do you think a successful BB is worth between now and the end of the season?

    I can either do it next GW with this lot or wait until after a WC but the WC would need to fit 15 starters including a 2nd playing keeper which I am not keen on.

    I an thinking this coming week would be enough with these options-
    Allison (CRY), Holgate (nor), Stephens (ARS), Dendoncker (BOU).
    Think these could get 10-15 points and maybe that's enough.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Anything above 16 should be considered as success

      1. marzo
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        16 points- I think I will just go for it.

  28. S.Kuqi
    • 7 Years

    Dcl better option than Barnes for gw31 only? My current fh team:

    Pope
    Taa-Boly-Lascelles (Robinson)
    Salah-Mane-Son-Martial
    Vardy-Jimenez-Dcl

        Looks good as is? Maybe Lascelles > Aurier?

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Not sure when you will play Aurier with that defense. Lascellas is fine imo.
