Scout Notes

Wood’s aerial threat bodes well for Brighton match as Burnley get behind Pope

Norwich 0-2 Burnley

  • Goals: Chris Wood (£6.1m)
  • Own Goals: Ben Godfrey (£4.4m)
  • Assists: Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m), Erik Pieters (£4.2m)
  • Red Cards: Emi Buendía (£6.0m), Josip Drmic (£5.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Pieters x3, Phil Bardsley x2 (£4.3m), Wood x1

Two red cards for Norwich were perhaps the key factors in Burnley’s attacking assets leaving a little to be desired by their respective Fantasy managers in Gameweek 37+.

The favourable meeting with the Canaries sparked interest players such as Chris Wood (£6.1m), Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) and Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) in the lead-up to Saturday’s match but the New Zealand international was the only one from that trio to come away with any attacking returns.

In bizarre circumstances, Norwich found themselves reduced to nine men before half-time, thanks to recklessness shown by Emi Buendía (£6.0m) and Josip Drmic (£5.3m).

Their sendings off made this the first Premier League game to see a side suffer two red cards in the first half since 2015, highlighting how much of an enigma the opening match of Gameweek 37+ proved to be.

As a result of the man disadvantage, Daniel Farke’s men lined themselves up in exceptionally compact formation for the second half, effectively lined-up in two banks of four with no striker, in a 4-4-0 formation. That left Tim Krul (£4.6m) to do what he does best, producing seven saves across the 90 minutes.

“You know it’s going to happen. They just went to two banks of four and defended their box very well.” – Chris Wood

That obviously made it harder for Burnley to capitalise on the red cards, much to the frustration of those who had backed the Clarets hoping for more explosive hauls.

There will be some that say the freak nature of the 90 minutes makes it hard to take too many FPL lessons from, but there were a few nuggets worth analysing.

Firstly, this game highlighted once again that Wood is the clear aerial threat for Burnley and the most likely to get on the end of crosses into the box.

We chose him for the Gameweek 37+ Scout Picks on the basis that Norwich had recently been susceptible to headed attempts on goal. He may not have chosen to attack Johann Berg Gudmundsson‘s (£5.9m) first-half cross with his head, but netting it with a bicycle still demonstrates what Wood is capable of in the air.

“There was a chance he would miss all the games, so he’s done ever so well to get back out there.” – Sean Dyche

That will be encouraging for those who brought the Burnley forward in for Gameweek 37+ as he may also be useful on the final day of the season.

The Clarets face Brighton next Sunday who, between Gameweeks 30+ and 36+ conceded 23 headed attempts, third only to Norwich and Newcastle.

Those who invested in Rodriguez can certainly consider themselves unlucky not to see him come away from Carrow Road with a decent haul as his blank was not for want of trying.

In the 20th minute, the former Southampton man cut through the middle, after good hold-up play from Wood, before slicing wide.

Rodriguez then fired a powerful shot at Krul in the 38th minute, only to see the goalkeeper meet it with another good save. Had it gone in, Wood would have been credited with the assist.

Just after the hour-mark, Rodriguez nipped in at the front post to get on the end of an Ashley Westwood (£5.5m) corner, Krul on hand to make another instinctive stop.

His final opportunity came in the 83rd minute when an intricate piece of passing play set Rodriguez up on the edge of the box. He curled a high effort towards goal that looked destined for the net, but the Krul stretched sufficiently to catch it.

McNeil also had opportunities to get involved in the goals and his owners will also be cursing Krul’s heroic efforts to keep the score respectable at Carrow Road.

The young winger had Burnley’s first real chance of the game as he dropped the shoulder to lose Buendía in the middle, drove forward but fired over the bar.

He went a lot closer in the 41st minute when won a free-kick on the edge of the box. Despite his tender age, McNeil assumed responsibility for it, his direct effort deflecting off the wall and forcing a palmed save from Krul, produced as he fell to the ground from the power.

However, this match highlighted perfectly how difficult it is to pinpoint the assisters for Burnley. Wood looks central to their cross-heavy tactic, while McNeil is one of three players who provide the service. Gudmundsson’s return to the team on the right flank was the reason Wood found the net, while Westwood’s set-piece duties also make him another source of crosses.

Nick Pope (£5.1m) owners could not be displeased with what they saw on Saturday evening, as Burnley helped him achieve a 15th clean sheet of the campaign.

They might have been a little miffed that the Clarets’ shot-stopper was just one save short of an additional point, but against a Norwich side that has not troubled anyone since the restart, nobody was really expecting more than the standard total of six.

His owners would have been likely to start Pope again in Gameweek 38+ anyway but there were some interesting post-match quotes from Wood, who acknowledged that the entire Burnley squad is aware of how close he is to getting a hand on the Premier League’s Golden Glove award.

With that in mind, he made a empassioned commitment to helping Pope get another clean sheet in Gameweek 38+ when Brighton come to Turf Moor. With little left riding on that game other than Pope’s chances of winning that award, could we potentially see an even more defensive-minded performance next Sunday?

“As a team, we’ll be fighting like hell for him. He’s an outstanding goalkeeper. Hopefully, we can get him one more so he can get his hands on the Golden Glove.” – Chris Wood

If that were to be the case, Erik Pieters (£4.2m) could be a budget differential to consider on the final day of the campaign.

He came away from the Norwich game with a double-figure score having kept a clean sheet, providing an assist for Ben Godfrey‘s (£4.4m) own goal and securing all three bonus points.

Despite Gudmundsson reclaiming his station on the right of midfield, Pieters was able to keep his place in the team following Charlie Taylor‘s (£4.4m) hamstring injury and is likely to be in consideration for the left-back berth once again in Gameweek 38+.

Recent outings in midfield had clearly inspired Pieters ahead of this Norwich game, as he ventured forward to provide width, especially in the second half, going close to scoring himself just after the interval.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Lewis, Klose (Zimmermann 46′), Godfrey, Aarons; Tettey (Vrančić 90+3′), McLean; O Hernández (Idah 86′), Buendía, Cantwell (Rupp 76′); Drmic.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters, K Long, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Gudmundsson (Brady 59′); Wood (78′), Rodriguez.

    Have BB available for GW38 and so guess I have to make a boring defender transfer? If Holgate is fit then I'll ship Masina for:

    A Gomez
    B Pieters
    C Tierney

    Martinez
    Boly / Azpi Tark
    KDB / Sterling / Bruno / Sterling / Willian
    Jesus / Greenwood

    Patricio / Nketiah / Holgate / Masina

    1. rdamjan

      Holgate is out.

    Making a FH team for gw 38 is harder than I thought it would be ... So many options...

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Tell me about it mate
      What’s your current draft?

    2. Young Lingard
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I think Carlson who is in the top 10 still played it this week without a city asset
      When I cycled through his team I could see it potentially returning big and thought if I played one I’d try not to get sucked into city and Liverpool too much gw38

    3. GanonTEK
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      At the moment I have 3x City attack, 3x Man U attack, Antonio, 3x burnley def (Pope being one) and Cresswell
      and a bench of people who play.

  3. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Need help in choosing 5 of my front 7 for FH. Salah and Dilva confirmed. Between the rest of them.

    A) Pick 3
    Martial
    Bruno
    Son
    KDB
    Mahrez
    Sterling
    Foden
    Antonio

    B) Pick 2
    Rash
    Greenwood
    Auba
    Kane
    Ings
    Jesus
    Vardy

    Currently leaning on KDB Foden Bruno and Kane Auba

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Why so determined to have salah?

      I’m thinking of taking him out

      1. Goodbye Horses
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Newcastle are knackered at the back.

      2. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I just can't. Had him all season. He's my fav player. He's been top FPL scorer last 2 seasons and is the highest even this season. Always been reliable.

    2. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I wouldn't go Foden, City have the best fixture so max out on their best assets.

      If money no object then
      Sterling, KDB, Bruno

      Auba, Kane

      1. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Absolutely love that. But can't afford even with the cheapest defence. If you could lose one out of those, who would it be?

        1. QuintonFortune25
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Probably Kane

      2. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Yes and no need for a full playing bench? Maybe one will do..

    3. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I’ve got those two plus Willian as it’s his last game, Aruba going for boot, Jesus for city plus Bruno cos he’s bruno

      1. LegendMoon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        And greenwood because he’s cheap

      2. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        I'm not convinced about Chelsea players against Wolves. Looked pretty whack against Norwich too. Just too many other better options.

    4. Young Lingard
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Son Bruno *sterling*

      Auba ings

  4. QuintonFortune25
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Thoughts on this early FH team?

    Martinez
    Robertson - Pieters - Bardsley
    Salah - Sterling - Mahrez - Martial - D.Silva
    Auba - Ings

    Cheap bench

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Haha same as my option B below except I have Son over Mahrez in current draft

      1. QuintonFortune25
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah I'm starting to think most FH teams will have 8/9/10 players the same. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing, I suppose ill see how my rank is looking at the end of 37

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

    Morning all

    Which combo on FH?

    A) Jesus, KDB, Antonio, TAA
    B) Ings, Sterling, Martial, Robbo
    C) Rashford, Sterling, Antonio, Robbo

    A means no Utd players which feels dangerous but has 3 MCI.

    Martinez
    XXXX, Pieters, Bardsley
    Salah, XXXX, Dilva, Son, XXXX
    Auba, XXXX
    (Martin) (Greenwood, Thomas, Simpson)

    I’m torn atm!

    Cheers

    1. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B of course

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        What do you reckon to Son vs a 3rd MCI mid? Son is back in decent form and Spurs should be able to tear CRY a new one

        1. QuintonFortune25
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Yeah i like Son, but surely triple City against Norwich has got to be a priority on a FH?

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            If we can have any degree of certainty that Mahrez starts then yeh but no partic reason why he should massively outscore Son imo

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

              + you get the extra bonus points from elsewhere since the points will be shared in the city game & rotation, early subs etc

              1. pingissimus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 3 days ago

                This

                Only part of problem at City is rotation. I’m still smarting from that KdB C blank in a 5-0 against Brighton. Easy to miss hauls with City

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

          Son has a good record vs palace & palace’s defence is shite

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            This. And would Mahrez necessarily outscore him?

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

              It could happen but I am pretty much settled on Sonny

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Yeh I think I may be also

    2. Martial Matas
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B

      1. Don Kloppeone

      B looks better

      1. Don Kloppeone

        Thanks bro. It’s my favourite atm

    4. Bring back Rafa
      2 months, 3 days ago

      A

  6. King Kohli
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Thoughts here with 2 FTs?

    Pope Hendo
    TAA Doherty Gomez Long Taylor
    Salah Raz Bruno Mahrez Foden
    Rashford DCL Greenwood

    0.1 ITB

    1. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Excellent team, I would get Auba in for Rashford, not exactly sure how you fund it though. Maybe sell Henderson for a bench fodder?

    2. Martial Matas
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Could you afford DCL to Ings by downgrading hendo?

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

      Doherty DCL >> Creswell Ings

    4. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Doherty + Rashford => Anyone + Auba

  7. Jet5605
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Which is safer for GW38

    A Double BUR defence
    B Double ARS defence
    C Spread risk and get Aurier or Stevens

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      How many to spend?

      1. Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        5.8

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Digne also an option

          1. Jet5605
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            I like him but think Bournemouth could beat Everton if they are fighting to stay in the league

    2. Bring back Rafa
      2 months, 3 days ago

      If you're chasing I like the idea of double Burnley
      If you're leading spreading is better

  8. Lucky Z

    AoA chip would be so useful with so many attacking options

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year

      FH is substitute for AOA.
      I take it 100 times out of 100 if offered

      1. Lucky Z

      That strikers force is shambles IMO.
      They're kids. Won't expect anything from them.
      I'd let go one big midfielder & upgrade one of them ay least

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

        Anything more than a goal*

      2. Malcolm Tucker for England …

        i agree. that's the iffy bit, but was thinking that last day of the season is usually "kids" day. not sure who to downgrade either 🙁

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

          Ederson
          Bruno

      3. Vazza

        You can’t win anything with kids!

    2. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years

      Not too keen on double hammers defence

    3. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I would definitely WC that team.

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Wood on the bench ? Id rethink team if I were you 🙂

    5. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Why spend 25 mln on Salah + Mane? Awful team IMO

    6. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Downgrade mane and upgrade strikers

      1. Malcolm Tucker for England …
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        keep Mo over Mane, yes?

        1. LegendMoon
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Definitely he’s going for the boot he won’t pass to anyone

      I wouldn’t go without the best striker in the league at home to a rotten Sheffield United

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

        Martial is playing Leicester. I think you are mixing up fixtures 😛

      Where's the risk ?
      Home game
      Golden boot
      Probably last home game for him too.
      I see him starting if fit

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

          I'm drowning 😀
          On 95k now ...
          Was close to 10k with 7 points. Gap is 89 now .... Facepalm !

          FH will give boost hopefully. GL to you too bro !!

    Assuming no injury this GW, I'm planning to bring DSilva in for Foden for final GW and will probably TC him. Whimsical nostalgia or a cunning plan? (Currently 12 points behind leader in my money mini-league.)

    Triple Burnley defence are the first names on my FH team sheet

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      No space for digne ?

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

    Have had triple united attack until this point, on a fh now, contemplating going without any..madness?

    1. beric
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      In the same boat, im sure its gunna hurt us. Would like to squeeze martial or bruno in

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Not sure I ll get any but risky.

    2. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I would have one just to be safe. Leicester have an awful defence tbf. It will be an open game with a lot of goals.

  14. Mweene
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Tarkowski, VVD or Digne for the final gameweek?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Van dijk

    2. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Newcastle are in the bottom 3 for headers conceded, maybe VVD can nick a goal.

    3. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Tark, Digne, VVD in that order

  15. ElliotJHP

    FH thoughts
    A) Auba Wood D.Silva
    B) Rash Ings Mahrez

    1. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years

      Without a doubt A

  16. fr3d

    Play one please

    A) Doherty (che)
    B) Pieters (BHA)

      Ooo.

    David Silva getting subbed off in the 21st minute next weekend would be funny! 😀

    1. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I’d be worried about this if crowds were allowed at the stadium

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Funnier if he gets 21 points 🙂

    3. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Didn't get this? why 21st?

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        That's his shirt number

    4. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I reckon he’d rather get a couple of goals on his final appearance

  18. DAZZ

    Would love a Saints clean sheet today. Wont happen, but it would be nice

  19. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Guys. Considering that neither Chelsea nor ManUtd will fall below 6th place, does it mean that 7th place gives Arsenal UEL spot regardless of FA Cup Final result?

  20. dandalf
    2 months, 3 days ago

    How would you rate my earls thoughts of my FH for GW38?

    Martinez,

    TAA, Tark, Pieters

    KDB, Sterling, Dilva, Salah, Bruno,

    Ings, Rashford,

    Martin, Gomez, Kiko, Nketiah,

    Would really apriciate some of your insights?

  21. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Will we get early team news? I'm BBing and have Charlie Taylor.

    1. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Dont even think The Rockstar knows himself yet

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Think Scarface is taking over the mantle

      1. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Has he provided reliable info has he? I dont go on twitter so don’t recognize his name

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Taylor will not be fit. Hamstring injuries take a while. I got rid this week.

  22. fcsaltyballs

    Best 3x Man City players to go with for 38+ ??

    1. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling, Dilva, Jesus

    2. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      De Bruyne, Sterling, Mahrez

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        100%

    3. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      KDB Sterling DSilva

    4. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling, D.Silva and then either Jesus, Mahrez or KDB. Id go Mahrez due to value, lower ownership and his explosiveness

    5. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Sterling KDB and one of Silva Mahrez or Jesus

    6. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Ask my after Watford game 🙂 d Silva for zure

  23. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    If Otamendi starts, I will be very tempted. He has a Watford like haul in him.

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A bit suicidal

  24. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Interested to see Martinez everywhere

    1. Arsenal defence dodgy
    2. Arsenal likely to be out of Europa bar FA cup - full strength just possible - full tilt no way
    3. Watford will need a goal

    1. Kindness
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Arsenal defence is not dodgy at all

    2. QuintonFortune25
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Arsenal defence has looked solid recently, they're on good form and Watford will need a penalty to score

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

      1. They showed clearly yesterday that their defense is not dodgy.
      2. They don't need to rest because they have plenty of time before the next game.
      3. Yeah but Watford are awful. Lots of teams need goals, but typically good teams get them.

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Arsenal are not going to use the same game plan at home to Watford compared to City in a cup semi. For all Watford's flaws, they've shown they can hurt the big teams IF they turn it on. The Villa match will be a good test for Arsenal to see what they can do against a rubbish team fighting for their lives

  25. Old Gregg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    How about a 4-5-1 FH team.

    Martinez
    Pieters-Egan-Gomez-Creswell (3.9)
    Salah-Sterling-KDB-Dilva-Son
    Auba-(Greenwood)-(niketah)

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Would not sacrifice attacking spot

  26. That Posh Bloke
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    To get D. Silva in and Captain:

    A) For Mahrez
    B) For KdB
    C) For Ederson & Pulisic and -4

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Possibly C

  27. Mr.K
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Martinez
    Robertson - TAA - Pieters
    Salah - KDB - Sterling - Fernandes
    Ings - Rashford - Greenwood

    Too risky without a bench?

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      FH? Would have D.Silva rather than Rashford

      1. Mr.K
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        And play 3-5-2? Yes, it's FH

        1. Lucky Z
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Yes

  28. Klopp For The Kopps 😆
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    How does this back 4 look?
    Martinez
    VVD Tark Toby

    1. LegendMoon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      Not keen on Toby ,must be better options

  29. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 3 days ago

    Can you make this team better with two FT?

    Ederson
    Digne, Stevens, Boly,
    Salah, Kdb, Fernandes, C Sterling, Martial,
    Ings, Vardy

    Button, Greenwood, Lamptey. Taylor

    .3

    1FT

  30. FOO FIGHTER

    Patricio
    TAA Robertson Dunk
    Salah Sterling Dilva Martial Dilva
    Jesus Greenwood

    B
    Patricio
    TAA Dunk Doherty Aurier
