Grealish and his FPL owners frustrated as Lampard keeps us guessing with selection

Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea

  • Goals: Kortney Hause (£4.4m) | Christian Pulisic (£6.9m), Olivier Giroud (£6.6m)
  • Assists: None | Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) x2
  • Bonus: Azpilicueta x3, Giroud x2, Pulisic x1

Arsenal and Sheffield United assets mostly disappointed in their second Gameweek 30+ fixtures and there was little joy for Fantasy managers in part two of Aston Villa’s double-header.

Kortney Hause (£4.4m), owned by 0.1% of Fantasy Premier League bosses and just one manager inside the top 10,000, was the only Villan to score more than two points in Sunday’s defeat against Chelsea, whose second-half comeback left Dean Smith’s side rooted in the relegation zone.

The Villa boss had named an unchanged side for the encounter with Frank Lampard’s troops, meaning another start up front for the ‘out of position’ and misclassified FPL midfielder Keinan Davis (£4.4m).

Davis had looked sharp in the goalless draw with Sheffield United but he was starved of service here, failing to register a single shot or penalty box touch before being replaced in the 57th minute.

Jack Grealish (£6.4m) saw slightly more of the ball but plenty of grass, too, being fouled nine times (the most of any player in Gameweek 30+) as Chelsea sought to thwart Villa’s talisman through any means necessary.

Grealish’s on-field frustrations mirrored those of his owners off it, with the most-bought FPL asset of this Double Gameweek compounding a second successive blank by being booked for a petulant foul in injury time.

Hause had given Villa the lead shortly before half-time, following up his own saved shot to break the deadlock.

The centre-half has caught the eye at attacking set plays in Double Gameweek 30+ but his manager praised his defensive contributions ahead of Wednesday’s match at Newcastle United, saying:

It looks like he’s got a really good partnership going with Tyrone Mings. The back four has looked really solid, which has been pleasing because we have been leaking chances and goals previously. With Bjorn Engels being injured as well.

Villa had defended reasonably well until Chelsea’s two-goal salvo on the hour-mark, with the visitors dominating possession but not crafting a real clear-cut opportunity until Christian Pulisic (£6.9m) fired the Blues level from Cesar Azpilicueta‘s (£5.9m) cross.

The Chelsea right-back was at it again two minutes later, assisting what turned out to be the winner in the shape of Olivier Giroud‘s (£6.6m) deflected strike.

Many of us will be looking at Chelsea assets from Gameweek 32+ onwards but settling on the right player or a combination of them will prove troublesome.

Lampard has a huge squad available to him for the run-in, with Jorginho‘s (£4.9m) imminent return from suspension only swelling the ranks.

A prime example is Tammy Abraham (£7.5m), the most-bought Chelsea asset of Gameweek 30+.

Over 200,000 FPL managers took the plunge on the striker ahead of last Wednesday’s deadline but he found himself only named among the substitutes at Villa Park, emerging for the dreaded one-pointer after the break.

Abraham was a regular starter when fit from Gameweeks 3-25 but Giroud’s fine pre-lockdown form earned him another run-out in the Midlands and the veteran Frenchman’s goal will only increase the ongoing uncertainty over when and how often his positional rival will get game-time.

Pulisic is another asset capable of some explosive returns but only did so from the bench on Sunday, with Lampard opting to start a rusty-looking Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.3m) down the left flank instead.

The Chelsea boss said of those two players:

I’m delighted for Ruben to be back in the fold. He’s got in the team on his own merit and for the way that he’s worked for a long time now. In the last few weeks he’s looked good and strong. We have to give him some time to adapt but I felt it was a good game for him to bring his physicality and something different.

He’s going to get much better. It’s been a long time since he last played but he has so much to give us a team and a squad. There were glimpses of it today but there’s much more to come.

The individuals who make the difference should always take all the credit so with Christian and Ross Barkley, who came on at the same time, they’re both players who have trained well and had cases to start this game.

I had some good selection problems and you have to consider the type of game. We knew that fitness would play a part so the idea of bringing on Christian and Ross early in the second half was always something that was in my mind depending on how the game went.

There was at least the familiar sight of Mason Mount (£6.2m) on the pitch, with Lampard’s most-trusted lieutenant keeping up his ever-present record.

Mount has started in 26 of his 30 league appearances this season and was arguably Chelsea’s brightest player throughout, with the three-month break looking like it had done the energetic midfielder the world of good after an arduous 2019/20 campaign.

Buzzing across the pitch from left to right, Mount drew a smart stop out of Orjen Nyland (£4.3m) and fizzed a low ball across the Villa goalkeeper’s six-yard box that evaded both defence and attack.

The young midfielder was namechecked by his manager after the match but it was Azpilicueta who Lampard reserved the most praise for:

I thought Azpi was really good in the game. Obviously he delivers the ball for Christian’s goal and got really high up in areas. We worked a lot before the game on how we wanted to attack and down the right-hand side was certainly an area for us to try to exploit.

Willian, Mason Mount when he moved to that side and Azpi with his energy to keep joining was a huge point of attack for us and eventually, we got the breakthrough from that. He showed his leadership and his quality.

While Azpilicueta delivered the goods, there was no such joy for Marcos Alonso (£6.2m).

The premium FPL defender was collateral damage of that decision to funnel play down the Villa left and he duly blanked, something he hadn’t previously done when starting a Premier League game this season.

The availability of Reece James (£5.1m), whose Gameweek 30+ benching was perhaps as much fitness-related as it was tactical, will also cause week-to-week jitters among Alonso’s owners going forward and the Spaniard remains a high-risk, high-reward punt.

As for Villa assets, Smith’s side at least have a not-too-awful Gameweek 31+ clash with Newcastle United to come, which acts as a bit of a buffer before the fixtures turn really bad.

The Magpies have been resilient at St James Park this season and demolished ten-man Sheffield United 3-0 on Sunday but Steve Bruce’s side does have an FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City looming large next weekend and this may not be a terrible time to play them, especially as they are well clear of the drop zone and have relatively little to play for in the league.

Smith knows that getting Grealish on the ball and ticking on Tyneside will be key to their chances:

You’ve got to feed him the ball, yesterday we never had enough of the ball to feed him. After two games, I expect him to be right at it against Newcastle.

    Nyland
    TAA-Lascelles-Boly
    KdB-Mahrez-Mount-Grealish-Bruno
    Aguero-Jimenez

    Leno-Baldock-Nketiah-Lundy

    Thinking to take -4 and sell Aguero and Mahrez for Vardy and Salah/Mane and save FH for later.

    Got burned.. On Bench boost with no shows from Salah and Reina. FML ship Salah out

    1. Dele
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I'm thinking of keeping Salah and shipping Mane for Son?!

    2. iL PiStOlErO

      1 month, 13 days ago

      Keep Mo. Dont make irrational decisions.

    3. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Wouldnt be shipping Salah? Can understand why your frustrated, but I used my FH and had 0 LFC players, but revert back to Salah, TAA and VVD this week and am 100% captaining Salah!

  3. FPL Kakarot
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Is Ancelotti or Klopp going to have a presser tomorrow?

  4. Moose™
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Rashford or Vardy on WC? Already have Bruno..

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Vardy

      1. Moose™
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Vardy's fixtures..

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          You can always switch him after Brighton

        2. Niho992
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          good fixtures

        3. Little Red Lacazette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Not bad at all next few. Plus you have Bruno.

        4. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          as in good or bad? look decent to me.

          Fernandes on pens takes the sheen off of Rashford for me. and he played so wide against spurs.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Then Vardy

      1. Moose™
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Rashy looks rusty..

    3. Bossworld
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I struggled with this one and was tempted to keep the money back to swap Rashford up to Vardy, but figured in my ML only one person has Vardy. Have a far more balanced team by virtue of having Rashford instead

    4. Rhodes your boat
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I want vardy over rashy but struggling to fit him in here 🙁

      Pope button
      Taa Doherty lascelles kiko simpson
      Salah kdb son Fernandes guendouzi
      Rashford jimi dcl

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        With 0.0itb can only see pope to Martínez and kiko to 3.9 but leaves me with a mega weak bench

        1. Bossworld
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          For me it means no Doherty and Adama Traore as fifth mid. Fancy Rashford to match Vardy's output

  5. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Thoughts on WC team?

    Foster
    TAA - Doherty - AWB
    Mane - Son - Kdb - Fernandes - Richarlison
    Jimenez - DCL

    Subs: Martin - Kiko - Robinson - Connolly

    1. Moose™
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Everton double up.. Any reason?

      1. Garth Marenghi
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Norwich

        1. JabariParkersEyelid
          1 month, 13 days ago

          100% and easy pivot to a United mid week after.

          1. Garth Marenghi
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Yes, I was also considering Richie to Pepe the week after since Arsenal play Norwich.

            1. JabariParkersEyelid
              1 month, 13 days ago

              For me don't have the cash for this but I'll probably start Nketiah on the off chance he plays.

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      It's basically mine, I really like it. Bench a concern but hopefully alright.

  6. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Any Man City team news?

  7. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Should I FH this team now or in GW33+

    Leno Ramsdale

    Maguire Egan Fernandez Stevens Boly

    KDB Grealish Bruno Mount Saka

    Aguero Jimenez Aubameyang

    1 FT 0.4 ITB No WC

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      My team similar and I'm FHing to get in Pool Spurs Utd and Leicester players.

  8. JM11
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Currently on FH.

    DDG (3.9)
    TAA Doherty Digne (3.9,3.9)
    Son Mane Richarlison Bruno (4.2)
    Jimenez Rashford DCL

    0.0ITB

    Torn between DCL and Jota. Any other opinions are welcomed. Cheers.

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Looks great.

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Nice. Keep DCL. And think twice about DDG

    3. DV8R
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Your bench is a mess, rotation could be a disaster for you

      1. DV8R
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Scrap that, just saw you're on FH. Good team!

  9. ManUnitedComeBack
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    If not on a WC, would you just play Nyland or take a hit to replace Leno?
    Also similarly, would you just play PvA or take a hit to replace Lundstram?

    I am tempted to stick with Nyland for this week and get Aurier in for Lundy.

    1. Athletic Nasherbo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Play Nyland.

      Get rid of Lundstram. Aurier wouldn’t be my choice but can see the appeal.

      1. ManUnitedComeBack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks!
        Who would you go for instead? I have 5.3m to play with so looking at the likes of Ritchie, Wan-Bissaka, Aurier, Soyuncu, Gomez.

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Ritchie or Soy for me

          1. ManUnitedComeBack
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Thanks! Am seriously considering Ritchie now. Will decide tomorrow

  10. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    An ideal scenario for myself is a KDB benching with Bernardo Aguero and Sterling, but realistically im expecting KDB to play and Mahrez Aguero Bernardo

    1. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I think you might get a hybrid of the two. KdB starting and Sterling Aguero Bernardo, with Mahrez coming on for the last 20-30 minutes and then starting against Chelsea.

  11. onceuponatyne
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Fairly template, but all feedback appreciated folks on this WC team.
    Ritchie isn't a kneejerk, was in my side prior to the other day.

    Martinez (Hendo)
    TAA / Ritchie / Lascelles / Saiss (Lundy)
    KDB / Fernandes / Salah / Son (Guendozi)
    Rash / Jimi (Nketiah)

    Only need Martinez for this one week.

    1. pjanns
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Your bench is really horrible, sorry. Lundy, is not safe. Guendo may get banned, and Nketiah, is he safe at all?

      1. onceuponatyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        No, good feedback.
        I def want Lundy - he'll get minutes every week, and is OOP. Even if he doesn't start, I'm happy with him from SHU.
        The rest... yeah, hard to disagree!

        1. ManUnitedComeBack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          But would it matter? You will probably play TAA, Ritchie and Saiss in a back 3. Why not downgrade Lundy (skip SHU altogether) and upgrade Guendouzi.
          With Lascelles' minutes assured, you can even go for a 3.9m 5th defender and get Armstrong as 7th attacker.

          1. onceuponatyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Cheers.
            Actually currently considering the same above, but with shipping Lund (I was keen, but I've actually just seen the SHU fixtures, and the Toon put 3 past them at the weekend and they've lost one of those defenders with a red)...

            Looking Cathcard (safe backup), Foden (5.1m and will get minutes) and Greenwood (bench waste).

            There's safer minutes than Foden, but not sure many will get more points in those minutes than he will in his.

            Open to ideas! 🙂

            1. ManUnitedComeBack
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 13 days ago

              If you haven't already, have a listen to today's scoutcast. Lateriser12 makes a wonderful fleeting point about how to use Foden well in the run-in.

              1. onceuponatyne
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Thanks Man, will check it out.
                I think Foden is probably who I'm going to opt for.

  12. SweepaKeepa

    Captain Doherty. Talk me out of it...

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Go Jimmy

      1. SweepaKeepa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        He’s dependable, but not explosive. Only scored more than once once this season. Doherty is on for defensive and offensive opportunities. Is my logic!

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          My gut tells me Jimmy will mega haul in next game. Would also rather cpt Utd then Doherty. But Doherty is golden I agree.

          1. SweepaKeepa
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Trust your gut. No regrets. Fernandes also in my deliberations.

            1. iL PiStOlErO
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 13 days ago

                You too!

    2. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years

      Could pay of. Probably CS. Maybe a goal or assist. From 6-?points.

    3. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I can just never bring myself to captain a defender (see Duffy, Shane) - but fair play if you have the grapefruits.

      1. Tempestic
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Doherty in a different league to duffy tho

        1. Tempestic
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          theres TAA as well, playing a low scoring palace team

          1. SweepaKeepa
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 13 days ago

            Palace pretty resolute of late though. And, more importantly, I no longer have him!

        2. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Just last season’s DGW trap memories...

      2. SweepaKeepa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Only hesitating as don’t need a differential. But always play for most points!

  13. LIARS POKER
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Which defensive trio?

    A) TAA, Aurier, Saiss
    B) Doherty, Gomez, Maguire

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      B

  14. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Why aren’t there many WCs with Kdb in them? Is it the price & rotation factor? Looked razor sharp vs arsenal though

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Most WC I have seen have KDB.

    2. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Think he is in most teams. KdB on penalties is first man in my team.

    3. BNMC
      1 month, 13 days ago

      It's really just Pranil going without KDB...

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        1 month, 13 days ago

        His team did look like fire though.

      2. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        What just him in the whole world ?

    4. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Some FH teams drop KdB because of fixture.

    5. Bubz
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Almost all of them have him

      Go back a few pages, look at the teams and you'll realise the first part of your question could almost be said to be based on fake news. 😀

    Alli or Pogba? Already got El Ghazi

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      With El Ghazi covered can probably rest easy.

      PP

  16. Fuddled FC
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Which defender?

    a) Alonso
    b) Saiss
    c) Wan-Bissaka

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      B

  17. Niho992

    Jimenez will probably blank vs Bournemouth as usual in easy fixtures

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      yeah i never feel like i can captain him

      1. Niho992
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        same

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      West Ham is an easy fixture and he scored.

      1. Niho992
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        he wasnt C material in that game

        1. JabariParkersEyelid
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I wouldn't captain him, but that's not what I thought you were saying. I'd expect him to return against a frankly awful Bournemouth side.

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I actually trust him more then Utd against weakend sheff def.

      1. Niho992
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Vardy is better C option than Bruno and Jimenez in my opinion

        1. iL PiStOlErO
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Also good choice yes

  18. pjanns
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Roast my WC team. 🙂

    Pope
    Maguire - TAA - Doherty
    KDB - Son - Bruno - Mane
    Rashford - DCL - Jiminez

    (Martinez - Dendo - Lacelles - Holgate)

    All opinions are more than welcome, thanks 😀

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      1 month, 13 days ago

      The rich man's template team. It's very good.

      1. pjanns
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks.

      2. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Yep, I have Salah instead of Mane

    2. Moose™
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Mag over AWB?

      1. pjanns
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Ye, I'm torn. Had AWB in at first. Could go either way.

      2. JabariParkersEyelid
        1 month, 13 days ago

        If you are set and forgetting a United defender I think Maguire is the clear choice as he will play every game.

    3. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Same team, with Aurier instead of Maguire and Salah, not Mane. Think its a solid team and covers the important players from the teams in form.

      1. pjanns
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I don't trust Aurier one bit. But thanks for feedback, you should be pretty well sorted aswell 🙂

        1. Firminoooo
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I know. I hate the guy, but he is so attacking and nailed. Great fixtures.

    4. wantsharptv
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Son is great but spurs now have all their attacking players available...

      1. JabariParkersEyelid
        1 month, 13 days ago

        But Son is there best player? I don't buy him getting rotated.

      2. wantsharptv
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        It's essentially son lamela bergwijn dele lucas for 2 positions albeit he has an edge on them

    5. Ajax Hamsterdam

      you must have some nice tv ! well done

    Filling the WC:
    Pope
    TAA, -----, Saiss, Holgate, Lascelles
    Salah, KDB, -----, Saka, Bruno
    -----, Jimenez, -----

    1) Aurier; Sarr; Rashford, Tammy
    2) Doherty; Mount; DCL, Rashford
    3) Doherty; Son; Nketiah, Tammy
    4) AWB/Maguire; Sarr; Rashford, Tammy

    1. iL PiStOlErO

      2

    2. Moose™
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Tammy is nailed?

      1. jdp219
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Haven't the slightest, so maybe not him just yet, then. He certainly has the fixtures after this gameweek, though.

  20. SomeoneKnows
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Would appreciate your thoughts

    Pope (Martinez)
    TAA, Saiss, Lascelles (Aurier, Basham)
    Mane, KDB, Fernandes, Saka (Douglas Luiz)
    Aguero, Jimenez, Rashford

    0.5 itb so upgrade suggestions are welcome

  21. Tshelby
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    A or B?

    A) Egan, Henderson -> Aurier, DDG (-4)
    B) Egan Henderson -> Aurier, Pope (-4)

    Or C and don't take the hit and just use one FT

  22. ALegendJ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Is it crazy going without Salah or Mane for the next two GWs?

    1. Firminoooo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      If you want to attack OR I would go for it. Iam at 1.6k OR and first and second in my moneyleagues (4000£). I think I play it safe with Salah.

  23. Gearoid
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    A. Son, Richarlison, Rashford, + 0.2 or
    B. Mane, Bergwin, Ings, to fit into this WC team?

    McCarthy
    Doherty TAA Lascelles
    KDB Bruno _____ _____
    DCL Jiminez _____

    Button Hayden Holgate Robinson

    Leaning towards A on the couple of comments received so far. With the 0.2 and doing Robinson Hayden to Simpson Ghendouzi I can the upgrade McCarthy to Pope.

    Pope
    Doherty TAA Lascelles
    KDB Bruno Son Richarlison
    DCL Jiminez Rashford

    Button Ghendouzi Holgate Simpson

    Time to stop tinkering?

    Kane captain WHU(H) - thoughts? (I'm on WC)

    1. Tshelby
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Lovely risk

    2. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Might as well captain Sissoko.

  25. Netters2018
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 13 days ago

    On WC better to go Mane or Salah? I want salah but worried about fitness. I cant see him starting against palace.

    1. Kellz86
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      I think the exact opposite, Salah is my captain for 31+

      Liverpool missed him massively against Everton

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      i'm going Salah. just going with gut feeling

  26. wantsharptv
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Would greatly appreciate your thoughts

    De Gea
    TAA Doherty Saiss Ritchie
    Fernandes KDB Mane
    Rashford Jiminez Vardy

    Martinez Lascelles Davies D.Luiz

  27. KUNingas
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    On WC, pick one

    A) Justin
    B) Holgate
    C) Aurier

    1. Kellz86
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      C for me

      1. KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thanks!

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

  28. Kellz86
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Chasing in my ML by about 70pts and hoping to utilize my WC to fill in some differentials:

    This is my current thinking for w31+:

    DDG,
    Aurier, Doherty, TAA
    KDB, Salah (c), Martial, Bruno, Traore
    Jimenez, DCL

    Button, Soyuncu, Lascelles, Nketiah +0.7m ITB

    Any suggestions on improvements?

    Cheers

      Martial to Richie

  29. Checko
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Which two of Lascelles (Villa at home), Laporte (Chelsea Away, Lundstram (Man Utd Away) would you play this GW?

    1. Kellz86
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Lascelles/Laporte

    2. Jon Snow
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      LasLap

  30. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 13 days ago

    Do you think Shaw or Williams will start vs Sheffield folks?

    Shaw was poor but not sure if he done enough to get dropped

    1. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Shaw was actually great. Not sure what game you may have been watching. I assume many would agree with me, non biased.

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Thought he was pretty average. His positioning at times was poor.

      2. Tinmen
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Not good enough for United. Simple as that
