Vardy’s super stats, a new £4.0m defender and injuries: FPL notes on Leicester’s win

Leicester City 2-0 Sheffield United

  • Goals: Ayoze Perez (£6.0m), Demarai Gray (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Luke Thomas (£4.0m), Jamie Vardy (£9.8m)
  • Bonus: Thomas x3, Wes Morgan (£4.1m) x2, Ryan Bennett (£4.8m) x1

Leicester City saw off a strangely limp Sheffield United to set up a final-day showdown that even Sky Sports will struggle to over-hype.

What turned out to be a regulation 2-0 win came with goals from Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) and Demarai Gray (£5.0m) as the Blades’ recent recovery came to an abrupt end.

And it means that the Foxes will now entertain Manchester United in Gameweek 38+ with a Champions League spot going to the winner, unless Chelsea – just a point above both sides in the table, but with an inferior goal difference – slip up.

From a Fantasy perspective, that means three teams’ worth of exceptionally-motivated talent to tap into, and some of that was on display at the King Power Stadium yesterday evening.

The star of the show, however, didn’t even have a value in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) until hours after the match was over.

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers handed a debut to 19-year-old Luke Thomas (£4.0m) at left-back, citing injuries to both Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) and Christian Fuchs (£4.2m).

The youngster promptly played a blinder, setting up Perez’s opener, keeping a clean sheet and earning himself the maximum bonus award as he brought in 12 points for his zero owners.

That figure has now risen to well over 5,000 as FPL managers move for a cheap defender with proven ability to deliver returns at both ends of the pitch. Okay, so the sample size doesn’t get much smaller than one match, but it was a dream debut for Thomas which earned him plenty of praise from Rodgers:

It was probably the hardest game he could have for his debut. I could see he could play for me quickly. He’s got a great temperament. He isn’t fazed. He understands football and you saw his pass for the goal. I thought he was outstanding in his play.

Outstanding he was, although going for Foxes defenders when their final two games involve a trip to Spurs and then that United mega-clash looks risky at best.

Perez had already been handed one chance by Thomas when the midfielder headed over the teenager’s excellent cross. He made no mistake with the second opportunity, collecting Thomas’s low ball and scoring emphatically from just inside the area.

United keeper Dean Henderson (£5.2m) could do nothing about the goal, but he more than earned his keep over the course of the match, denying a number of City players in one-on-ones.

Such was the home side’s early dominance that they’d already had nine attempts before 22 minutes had been played, with Henderson using his legs to keep out a Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) effort and repeating the trick twice more when the veteran striker released Harvey Barnes (£5.9m).

Another excellent chance fell to the influential Youri Tielemans (£6.1m), whose close-range shot was blocked after he was set up by Vardy again, before the forward burst through but watched his left-foot shot graze the outside of the post.

The only worry for Leicester fans still getting over Sunday’s capitulation against Bournemouth was that missing so many decent chances might come back to haunt them.

That scenario certainly came close to playing out when a John Egan (£4.7m) header from a corner deflected off Wes Morgan (£4.1m), forcing Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) into a smart save.

United boss Chris Wilder threw the kitchen sink at the game as it drifted away from his side.

He made three changes at half-time, including the bittersweet Fantasy move of replacing Sander Berge (£4.7m) with the fit-again John Lundstram (£4.6m), and even switched to a back four later on.

But his players never really got going and the Foxes were not in the mood to repeat their south coast meltdown.

They finally secured the win when Vardy broke free yet again and, just for a change, someone decided to grace the striker’s persistent creativity with a goal.

That someone was substitute Demarai Gray (£5.0m), who finished from the angle with a sweet shot back across Henderson.

It was absolutely what the Foxes deserved from a dominant display in which they had seven shots on target to Unted’s one, prompting a pleased post mortem from Rodgers:

It was our first 90-minute performance since we came back. We’ve played well in other spells in games, but we had to play well over the course of 90 minutes.

The match was also the first in which Barnes started since Gameweek 30+. Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) has performed well in his stead, but Leicester look a quicker and more threatening attacking unit when Barnes is providing support for Vardy.

Not that too many managers will be tempted by Foxes assets with the schedule that they have, while Rodgers provided a post-match update on others who will definitely need selling right now:

As mentioned, that elevates the appeal of Thomas, and even the evergreen Morgan, as cut-price defensive options. But the chances of keeping clean sheets against either Spurs or Man United look slim.

As for the Blades, will the real Sheffield United please stand up?

After some impressive recent performances, they were decidedly average against Leicester and Wilder wasn’t about to spare his players’ blushes with his assessment:

We were way off of it. We have taken some enormous steps forward this season, but the goalkeeper kept us in the game, we never deserved anything form the game – off it from the first minute to the 90th, no excuse from us. Technically very poor, physically out-fought.

Matches against Everton and Southampton will round out a phenomenal first season back in the top-flight for Wilder and his men; fixtures that should be productive for those Fantasy managers invested in a backline with 13 clean sheets to their name – only three teams have managed more.

Inconsistency is the worry, though. This is a side that can beat Spurs, Wolves and Chelsea at home, while struggling on the road against the likes of Man United, Newcastle and even Aston Villa.

Based on that recent evidence, Monday’s visit from Everton looks promising, next Sunday’s trip to Southampton troubling.


Leicester City (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel; Bennett, Morgan, Evans; Justin, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Pérez (Choudhury 71), Barnes (Gray 76); Vardy.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham (Sharp 59); Stevens, Osborn (Fleck 45), Norwood, Berge (Lundstram 45), Baldock; McBurnie, McGoldrick (Mousset 45).

Above: Players involved in Leicester City v Sheffield United sorted by chances created

The bonus point allocation from last night’s match produced an interesting sub-plot.

The (small) contingent of managers with Leicester defender James Justin (£4.7m) in their teams looked like they were sitting on two, and maybe even three, extra points as the match wound down.

By the time the bonus awards were added, their man had none.

The reason for that was star debutant Thomas wasn’t even in the FPL system until well after his 12-point match had finished.

Only Vardy created more chances than the youngster, and his assist and clean sheet certainly merited the maximum bonus award.

But it was still hard on Justin’s owners.

Above: Players involved in Leicester City v Sheffield United sorted by big chances

Then again, Vardy’s 29.4% fan club arguably had even more reason to feel aggrieved at the designation of the extra points.

As well as leading the way with five chances created, he was also involved in all six big chances the Foxes had against Sheffield United.

One of them led to Gray’s goal, three others were fluffed by his teammates and Vardy himself had the other two.

It was that profligacy which ruined Vardy’s bonus point chances – scant reward for a truly influential performance that, on another day, could have resulted in a huge haul.

Above: Leicester City’s chances created map in Gameweek 36+ (assists in green)

While nominally playing as the central striker, Vardy did most of his best work on the left flank – as did the team as a whole.

A look at the areas in which they created their chances shows just how threatening they were down United’s right side, with seven of the side’s 12 chances coming from that area – including both of the assists.

Creativity was clearly not an issue on the day – just a lack of a clinical edge in front of goal.

The six big chances the Foxes forged was way above their season average of 2.4 per game, although the total of 88 they’ve managed this campaign is bettered by just three teams, who all happen to be above them in the league table.

    Whondo you think will win the Golden Boot?

    A) Vardy - 23
    B) Ings - 20
    C) Auba - 20
    D) Salah - 19

    I still think Vardy is going to go through with this but I really want Ings to be the one!

      Vardy but Ings to finish on 23 goals

    7. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A even with no more goals scored. Have a feeling it is done, 3 goals is nice difference. Party can begin.

    8. Old Boots
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Vardy, but I'd love to see Ings win it too.

  2. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    My plan is Giroud to Wood and play team below. I have just enough to also do Foden to D Silva. Perhaps meant to be that I do that also for -4. But fear may be priced out before next week so will be going into 38 with Foden, unless take hit elsewhere

    A Keep Foden
    B Foden to DSilva -4

    Pope
    TAA Maguire Doherty
    Sterling Bruno KDB Martial (c) Foden
    Vardy Wood

    Martinez Aurier Nketiah Fernandez

  3. Deulofail
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    How would you line up this team? Bench and captains?

    Martinez (avl)
    Digne (shu) | Doherty, Saiss (CPL)
    KDB, Mahrez, Foden (wat) | Fernandes (WHU)
    Rashford | Ings (bou) | Wood (nor)

    McCarthy (bou) | TAA (CHE), Pulisic (liv), Aurier (LEI)

    Currently thinking of captaining Ings, Wood or Doherty, since they have no FA cup game before the match.

    0FTs. 2.5 ITB.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Would play TAA over Digne.

      Looks fine otherwise.

    2. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No Foden (Noden)

      The rest is hard! Pulisic could easily, easily score vs Liverpool so I would start him. It's mad that TAA would be on the bench but that's where we are right now.

      Are you chasing or holding? Want to take risks?

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I don't want to influence you by giving you that information, sir. You should know better!

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          You know I don't know better than nobody about nothing.

          I know you like a bold team selection and (c) choice, but do oyu really have 0 FTS, as in, you have made one since the GW ended? Stupid question maybe but I refer you to my opening argument.

          1. Deulofail
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            I just bought Ings and Wood 20 mins ago with my 2 frees 🙂

            1. Deulofail
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              For Giroud and G-Wood. I don't like green. Green is not a creative colour.

              1. Make Arrows Green Again
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                As I've always said, you can't build anything with gr--nwood.

                Your only standout captaincy pick is Fernandes, or Rashford IMO. Too much uncertainty around the City players. Everyone and his dog will be on Fernandes, which makes Marcus FoolhardyAttemptToCrossARiver your interesting captain.

                1. Deulofail
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 13 days ago

                  Ings it is!

                  Thanks as always, as I like to say.

    3. Greek Freak
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      So based on your bench selection - you think Liverpool will concede, but Pulisic won't be involved in the goal(s)?

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Nope, I don't think that. Nor do I think the opposite. It's about the likelihoods of things happening in that match against the likelihood of other things happening in other matches with other players I own.

    4. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Would probably start Puli over Foden

    5. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Doherty could be good left field captain. I would play Pulisic over Foden and would want TAA and play over Digne but tough call

    6. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Interesting. I didn't even consider Puli over Foden. What's up with that? Isn't Foden likely to start and get mega mega haulage/

      1. Greek Freak
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I wouldn't bench Foden. You'd think Pep plays his first choice front 3 in the cup and then Foden comes back in for Watford.

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Problem is we won't know until after the deadline. He might not start in the cup but perhaps he will be rested for 37 also and start in the easier home game.

          1. Greek Freak
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            This unpredictability is why I wouldn't captain a City player this week, but I'd be happy to play anyone, especially Foden.

            1. Deulofail
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              This was my thinking. But I can see why Arrows would lean towards the security of Pulisic. I just don't trust Chelsea right now, they are all bite and no fart.

              1. Greek Freak
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Yeah fair enough. And I get your point about probability above.

            2. Make Arrows Green Again
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              Fair point. I wouldn't captain any until 38 I think.

  4. faux_C
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    I'm currently rank 69 (nice!) in the FFS league. How many of the 68 people above me do we reckon are people who actually comment on the site?

  5. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    A) Jesus -> Kane
    B) Martinez -> Pope
    C) Lascelles -> Tarkowski (first sub)

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      FH 38 so a one week punt

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A

    3. Old Boots
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      C

  6. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Who do you fancy to score more GW 38:

    A) Auba (WAT)
    B) Kane (cpa)

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No idea. Probably down to form going into that last game. Kane has more rest too. If he plays well against Leicester than I can see him being good.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A

    3. Old Boots
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Close call. I'd probably say Auba, particularly if he's still in touching distance of the golden boot.

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Thanks all - if Arsenal get knocked out by City and Auba is within a couple of Vardy for the golden boot I will probably punt on him.

  7. Cruz88
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Team for 37:

    DDG
    Trent, Saiss, Laporte
    Sterling KDB Fernandes Pulisic
    Greenwood Ings Vardy

    McCarthy, Willian, Azpi, Stephens

    a) DDG + Willian to Martinez and Martial (-4), and bench Pulisic or Greenwood
    b) Trent > Tarkowski (free). Use money next week for Vardy > Auba
    c) Downgrade Laporte to bring in Mahrez for Willian (-4). Bench Pulisic or Greenwood for Mahrez.
    d) something else...

  8. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Really wondering whether to take a hit to bring Martial (C) in. I'm teetering on the edge of top 1k (901 currently), and feel like he's the only player that could seriously damage my rank next GW. Also my two minileague rivals own him.

    I would have to do Pulisic --> Martial & Rashford --> Ings/Wood -4

    Stick or twist?

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Just about worth doing it if you're going to captain him. He's still a bit of a scarce commodity in my ML so I am vaguely considering the same thing.

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Not an easy answer, I presume that - 4 takes u out of top 1k however I like to look of both incoming transfers

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Probably, unless Kiko goes crazy tonight and gets me 12 points or something lol

        1. The Littlest Robbo
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          You never know, lol

    3. SH@KTIMAAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I am also considering bringing him in:
      Pulisic+Vardy->Martial+Wood

      1. SH@KTIMAAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        For a hit... Forgot to mention that

        1. Bubz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          It's a really tricky one, could go horribly wrong or brilliantly right

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Losing Rashford is blah.

      Who's your 3rd United? It should be Rashford, Fernandes, Martial...

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Greenwood and Bruno my other 2. Basically have to keep greenwood for price reasons

    Who would be a good replacement for Richarlson for the remaining two weeks?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Assuming you have triple Man City, Armstrong/Redmond/Stanislas can work

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        got only KDB mate...do u see any other city midfielder to start both games?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I guess David Silva has decent chance of starting both games.

    Salah KdB Bruno Pulisic
    Rash Vardy Greenwood

    3.9 Fernandez Holgate Guendouzi

    1ft, 0.2itb

    Vardy+Puli to Ings+Dilva for -4? And then next week Rash to Auba? Maybe even Mo to Sterling (depending on situation in my ML and I still have TC left to play)...

    Hi. What would you do here with 1ft and zero cash?

    Rank is 90k so willing to take a hit if anything worthy - but not sure it is.

    Thinking of vardy to wood. And benching pulisic at lpool

    Stuck on what do do here for this week, so any thoughts welcome...

    A) DCL
    B) Nketiah
    C) Wood -4
    D) Rodriquez -4

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Im between B and C. Thinking to gamble so will take -4.

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Take a hit an get rid of the donkey and u should be well off in 2 weeks time

      I would choose C

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      B easily

    4. Old Boots
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Thanks all. Think Wood might just edge it over Nketiah, as it will make tomorrow's game more fun to watch... I hope!

    Have 2FTs and 2.4m in the bank. Planning to FH38 so would like to use both freebies this week.

    Any ideas?

    Pope
    Azpi TAA Saiss
    Salah Bruno(c) Pulisic KDB
    Rash Greenw Jimi

    Martin Saha Robinson CTaylor

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      *Saka

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Pulisic & Greenwood -> Martial & Wood/Maupay

  15. timawflowers

    Will sterling start v watford

    1. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Just Pep knows

    2. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Genuinely no point asking or even thinking about it anymore because pep's rotation follows no logical rationale

  16. TAT
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Have to play my BB this GW, but I have to do some team surgery for it to be worth it. But how many hits is too many at this point? -8/-12?

    Will have to get rid of at least three of these (1 FT):

    Foster
    Fernández
    Hayden
    Aurier (depending if he’s available)
    Stephens

  17. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Which one sounds best from these?

    1) TAA Greenwood to Egan Ings
    2) KDB Greenwood to Ings BSilva/DSilva
    3) Ederson Puli to Ryan Mahrez
    4) Greenwood KDB to Wood Martial
    5) Greenwood TAA to Wood Tarkowski/AWB/Jonny
    .

  18. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Will their be ET in FA cup incase of draw or it will go to penalties directly?

  19. Dybala10
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Need to make a boring transfer with Holgate and Lascelles out for the season and Aurier maybe benched/rubbish.

    4.7 best spent on a Burnley defender? I am playing FH in 38.

    Who is the best option?

    A) Bardsley
    B) Long
    C) Pieters

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      C - should whip a few crosses in for Wood

    2. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A) Bardsley

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      C

  20. jimmy91

    BB in 38.
    Thinking of just changing Holgate for my BB in 38 with 1 ft and saving the other for next GW. Is this too conservative?
    Is Vardy worth keeping here we reckon?

    Pope.
    TAA, Saiss, AWB.
    Pulisic, Sterling, KDB, Mahrez, Fernandes.
    Vardy, Greenwood.
    Martinez, Azpi, Holgate, Nketiah.
    2ft's, 2.2m ITB.

  21. Pinky and De Bruyne
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Im leading by 45 points currently on 2178.
    2nd place has Sterling instead of Salah.

    Do i keep Salah or get Sterling to cancel him out ?

    Do i play it safe or go for the jugular ?

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

      Keep Salah, he could trash new and also Sterling may not even play.

  22. Bobby_Baggio
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    1FT but would like to save and have 2FT. Martial may hurt me but cant really see how to get him in. Starting Kiko is my only option. If it was a normal GW next week and not the last i would of done Lascelles > Burnley def. Thoughts?

    Patricio
    Doherty - TAA - Kiko
    Mane - KDB - Mahrez - Bruno
    Vardy - Jimi - Greenwood

    (3.9m) - Saka - Holgate - Lascelles

    1. Kuzser
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I think you can save this week. 2ft will be precious for GW38

  23. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Team is mostly ready here...

    Pope Martinez
    TAA Digne Pieters (Aurier Lamptey)
    Sterling KdB Foden Martial Fernandes
    Rashford Vardy (Nketiah)

    A) Aurier > Bardsley -4 and bench boost.
    B) Just hold, hope Aurier returns for GW38.

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Hold

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      B

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      B

  24. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Vardy to Auba for free?

    1. Pinky and De Bruyne
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ings

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No from me. Was considering but decided against it. I was impressed by Vardy and the stats above (you can see it as a member) are very favorable.

    3. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      nah - golden boot for vardy keep

    4. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Cheers! Could need A defender next to Taa and Doherty as Aurier, Lascelles Holgate probably won’t play. Saiss for best cs chances and not so expensive?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I'd get Pieters personally. Cheap which opens doors for the final game and is up against statistically the worst team attacking wise.

      2. Kuzser
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Burnely def?

    5. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      No

  25. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    GW 37 - Lascelles ➡️ Tark GW 38 - GW 38 - Willian and Vardy ➡️ DSilva and Auba -4?

    Or what would you do? 3.6 ITB
    Allison McCarthy
    Tark Trent Doherty Lascelles Taylor
    KDB (M)artial Bruno Sterling Willian
    Ings Vardy Greenwood

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Who are you planning on benching?

  26. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Gtg? Bench right?
    Henderson
    TAA Doherty awb
    Kdb Bruno martial(c) pulisic
    Vardy ings wood

  27. Dele
    • 4 Years

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Gw

  28. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Would you bench any of these guys for Wood?

    Sterling, KDB, Bruno, Pulisic, D.Silva, Ings, Greenwood.

    1. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Pulisic

  29. Kuzser
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Completely lost on what to do with the team, no obvious changes imo so will appreciate your help guys?

    30 points behind ML leader who has triple Liv def, Jesus and Rash as key differentials.
    1ft, 0itb

    1) gtg and save FT to have 2 for GW38
    2) Vardy -> Ings/ Wood
    3) Taa->Tarkowski
    4) Willian->McNeil

    McCarthy
    TAA - Doherty - Baldock
    KdB - Fernandes - Martial-Mahrez
    Greenwood - Jimenez -Vardy

    Subs: Willian Lascelles Lund. Krul

    1. ZakyJ
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      3 as youre hoping Liverpool don't get a clean sheet anyway

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If you did 4 who would you bench? I'd hold

  30. ZakyJ

    3 months, 13 days ago
