Improved Villa defence brings goal difference into relegation battle

Aston Villa 1-0 Arsenal

  • Goals: Trézéguet (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Tyrone Mings (£4.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Mings x3, Trézéguet x2, Jack Grealish x1 (£5.9m), Ezri Konsa x1 (£4.3m)

Aston Villa put the club’s Premier League destiny in their own hands with a massive 1-0 win over Arsenal on Tuesday evening.

It was a result that took Dean Smith’s men above Watford, whose goal difference had taken a battering at the hands of Manchester City, setting up a relegation showdown on the final day of the season.

Villa will travel to West Ham knowing that a win will keep them up, as will bettering the results of Watford and Bournemouth.

The Hornets have perhaps drawn the short straw in that they travel to face an Arsenal side that might want to produce a reaction to their Gameweek 37+ defeat at Villa Park, while Bournemouth face an out-of-sorts Everton side.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) is sure to have felt Tuesday’s loss most keenly, especially as it left him three goals short of Jamie Vardy‘s (£9.7m) tally in the Premier League Golden Boot race.

With Watford managerless and conceding a minimum of three goals in four of their last six outings, the Arsenal striker could be a force to be reckoned with on Sunday… We know Aubameyang is capable of man-of-the-match displays, as he showed in the recent FA Cup win over Manchester City.

“We need to transmit this enthusiasm and passion. There’s going to be some ups and downs but it’s good sometimes to see the reality and improve.” – Mikel Arteta

It was their continually improving defence that secured the win for Aston Villa against Arsenal, although they did ride their luck as Eddie Nketiah (£4.3m) struck the inside the post late on. 

Villa have now kept two clean sheets in the last three matches, each one leading to a massive three points for the team. Without the changes Smith made at the back, they would not be in the position they are ahead of the final weekend of the season. 

And now that goal difference is set to play such a key factor in the Premier League relegation battle, the Villans could play conservatively, opting to utilise the pace and guile of Jack Grealish (£5.9m) on the counter-attack as they did on Tuesday evening.

“We have to make sure we win at West Ham. We knew we had to show a lot of courage and work rate. It was a real team performance today. We defended the box very well, I don’t remember Pepe Reina making a save. The players all grew in stature tonight. Jack had his best game since the restart, Ezri has gone onto another level. It was a real team performance and it had to be.” – Dean Smith

If Villa were to execute their Gameweek 37+ gameplan at West Ham on Sunday, it could make life harder for assets such as Michail Antonio (£7.1m) and Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m), who have been in decent form of late.

However, relying on Villa for goals themselves might not be the smartest move for Fantasy managers in Gameweek 38+. After all, they have scored more than one goal just once since the return of Premier League football.

As much as Smith’s men managed the win over Arsenal well, there were few moments of real danger posed by their attackers.

Trézéguet‘s (£5.2m) winning goal was a stunning effort although it might be hard to replicate at the London Stadium.

Outside of that strike, Villa and their Arsenal counterparts were mostly feeding on scraps.

The home side came closest to pressing home their advantage in the 74th minute when Grealish went on a powerful counter-attacking drive. His pass into substitute Keinan Davis (£4.3m) was perfectly weighted to allow the striker to get one-on-one with Emi Martínez (£4.4m), only to pull his effort wide of the far post.

John McGinn (£5.2m) then had a powerful shot saved in the 77th minute, the Arsenal goalkeeper able to stand up to the effort.

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Reina; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Elmohamady (Guilbert 25′); Hourihane (Nakamba 73′), D Luiz, McGinn (Lansbury 90+3′); Grealish, Samatta (Davis 72′), Trézéguet.

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Martínez; Kolasinac, D Luiz (Pépé 60′), Holding; Saka (Tierney 60′), Torreira (Xhaka 46′), Ceballos, Cédric (Willock 79′); Aubameyang, Lacazette, Nketiah.

    Any news on Taylor before weekend?

    1. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’m sure we will hear it on presser...

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        whens the presser?

          2 months, 2 days ago

          I believe on Saturday, right?

    2. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Taylor Swift will be at home due to Covid 😉

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

      We'll get presser news but I'm like 90% sure he's out. Hamstring injuries don't heal quick and Burnley have nothing to play for so why risk him.

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

        Plus Pieters is playing a blinder there.

  2. My heart goes Salalalalah
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Early transfer thoughts. Please assist? Bench order?

    Bruno and Vardy to (S)terling and Wood for -4. Gives me:

    Patricio
    TAA Tarko Aurier
    KdB Sterling Martial Willian
    Wood Rashford Ings
    3.9 Foden Azpi Lascelles

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Maybe Foden over Willi but otherwise gtg

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Don't think he'll play last game. Thanks for the response

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

    Since gw30+ restart.

    Mancity total goals = 29 goals

    Goals scored by Jesus = 3

    Most starts by a man city attacker = Jesus (7)

    How the hell does he score so few despite playing upfront for mancity on a regular basis

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Ask Firmino

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        its in brazilian blood i guess

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Norwich a goldmine for strikers though. I am not keen on keeping Jesus but if early team news shows he starts then I will roll with him. Otherwise an easy FT to Kane.

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        id get kane regardless. he's the focal point of spurs attack and has been in great form against a injury ridden palace side

        while all city players will be looking to feed sterling due to golden boot chase

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

      I saw on intresting thing.

      KDB was higher up than jesus yesterday overall. Makes you wonder whether that's what is expected of him ??

    4. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      True...but he didn’t played much more minutes than KDB or Sterling for example.
      By the way, I don’t rate that guy at all...
      Watch carefully during the matches how much he frustrate his team mates with mistimed run or poor pass...they are really fed up with him.

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        yeah i think man city need a world class player to replace Kun

        dont think jesus is the answer .

  4. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who would you rather have vs Norwich.

    Both are not returning well.

    Jesus or KDB?

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

      First, who's nailed to start - Dilva and Sterling. Rest is less certain. Of those 2 options I'd take Kev.

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

      Kdb

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

      KDB all day long

      There's a chance Sterling starts upfront to to win the golden boot race.

      If thats the case i wouldnt be surprised if sterling score 4 or 5 goals given the form he's in and now that he;s on pens

  5. Nabs Kebabs
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    People can we please get one thing straight, KDB is NOT a holding mid 😆

    Has maybe played in that position less than a handful of times.

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

      Dilva on the pitch makes him one tbh

      1. tokara
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        shhhhhhh keep it to urself ;p

      2. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        What a load of absolute garbage. Who has started this rubbish. You guys go pick Jesus and Mahrez 😆 I'll stick with my KDB.

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

          Okay
          GL 🙂
          Eye test bdw. Not taking because anyone told me ...

      3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Amey you've piqued my interest - I'm off to delve into some numbers to see if this holds water!

        I could never sell him though - 9.5 for what he offers is just plain wrong

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

          I'm waiting for results 🙂

        2. Nabs Kebabs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          It's pure rubbish lol

        3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          So even just eyeballing it without go totally into details

          Some examples of games where Dilva & KDB both started: gw4, gw6, gw14, gw22, gw26, gw30

          KDBs scores in those weeks were: 13, 17, 10, 9, 14, 14

          If he scores those types of points as a holding mid, then please Pep, put him there for Norwich 😉

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

            Ha ha
            Fine ... You are making me change my plan 😀

          2. Nabs Kebabs
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            lol

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

        Nah

        Much more serious is Dilva pinching dfks and Sterling cocking up pens.

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

      Don't get points for names in FPL.

  6. Ibra
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    What do you guys think about Richarlison? He is playing against Bournemouth so imo he could be a good punt.

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

      Bournemouth will be defending for their lives. Everton on the beach. Not for me.

      1. Vazza
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I thought Bournemouth is on the beach?

      2. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Bournemouth need the win to stand any chance, that could open them up.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Prefer others. Can't see him goi g large.

    3. Mayor of Flair
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I've had him for a while now, delighted with his score this week but getting rid now for Dilva this weekend.

      All the reports I've read suggest Everton are awful and offer next to nothing going forward.

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

        Rich to Dilva is definitely an astute move.

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

    Ederson has outscored Pope since restart.
    44 to 41 ...

    I was right for a change 😀

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

      Fine, but you want 3 outfield citizens, surely?

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

        No no
        Last GW he's going for sure. Was talking about past GW's mate 🙂

        Actually this GW also I'm looking at Otamendi 😛

      2. Wild Card this...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Why? KDB outscored Ederson since restart by 10 points or so...taking into account price difference...I don’t think it’s necessary to have 3 outfield players.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      You taken into account what that extra 0.9M spent in improving outfield players would have gained you?

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

        I'm doing sh.t generally but have had 1/2 m itb constantly since restart

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

      dont forget the price difference.

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

        Irrelevant atm with so many cheap players doing well mate 🙂

        1. squits
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Not sure that's quite true. I've gone from 200k to 33k since restart. I've not had much in the bank the whole time. Martinez freed up so many funds for the likes of Raheem and Kane. If I had picked Ederson I wouldn't have been able to afford them

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

            That's impressive ...:o

  8. Little Red Lacazette
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Gtg for 38+? Not sure of captain.

    Pope
    TAA AWB Pieters
    Salah KDB Bruno D.Silva(C)
    Auba Greenwood Jimi

    Martinez Saka Saiss Cathcart

    1. Stram Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      So many good (c) options.
      Auba, Dilva, Salah...

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Between Dilva and Salah. Auba is a troll.

    2. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Thinking Dilva ATM

  9. Goat
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who’s better for GW38+?
    A) Mahrez
    B) D. Silva

    1. Stram Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B

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

      If you are confident Mahrez starts then A

    4. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B

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

    1.0 mil ITB on FH, Burnley to Aurier best move?

    Martinez
    Trent Long Pieters
    Mahrez Silva Sterling Salah Martial
    Kane Ings

    3.9 4.2 3.9 3.8

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

      No, don't worry about spare cash. Burnley are good for a cleanie.

    2. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No way. Team looks good imo. Maybe just upgrade bench

    3. Captain Scarlet
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Decent.

      If chasing, I'd be slightly tempted by Martinez > Pope. If not, leave.

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

      Thanks all!

  11. aapoman
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Predictions on City attack for GW38. My wild guess is:

    KDB Fernandinho Dilva
    Mahrez Sterling Foden

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

      That would be my wild guess too.

    2. Stram Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Hoping Dilva and Mahrez both start

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

      I can see Mahrez benched once again. He's useless

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Jesus will not be benched.

      Every week people keep on predicting he'll be benched but he's actually started the last 7-8 games.

      Pep knows they are SH*TE with that false 9 formation. Think they've lost both games they played a false 9 (Chelsea & Soton).

  12. Captain Scarlet
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Good morning all!

    Just about managing to stay top of my ML - 16 points clear this morning & very reliant on a Martial (C) tonight.

    A) Vardy, DCL > Kane (TC), Nketiah (-4)
    B) KDB, DCL > Sterling (TC) Nketiah (-4)
    C) KDB, Vardy, Willian > Kane, Sterling (TC), 4.9 mid (-8)

    V. tempted by C..! Worried by those with Free Hits left (main rival, for example).

    Patricio Martin
    TAA Aurier Pieters AWB Simpson
    Fernandes Martial DSilva KDB Willian
    Vardy Jesus DCL

    1 FT & 0.1 ITB & TC remaining.

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B for me

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

      I don't know if Nketiah starts though. You don't think Laca might take the start? You have enough cover?

  13. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Cheapest ass FH defence I could find:

    Martinez
    Pieters, Long, Diop
    Salah, Sterling, Martial, Dilva
    Kane, Auba, Ings

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Bardsley over Diop is cheaper and worth the extra excitment

      1. The Knights Template
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Agree, go three

        1. Lev Yashin
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Oof...cheeky!

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

          Yup, all in with Burnley defence. Why not?

    2. Stram Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Great mid/fwd!

  14. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    1 FT
    1. Doherty to Robbo
    2. Jesus to Kane

    Patricio
    TAA Dunk Aurier Doherty
    Salah Sterling Dilva Martial Fernandes
    Jesus

    Bench Greenwood » Read

    Will wait for early team news but which FT looks best?

    1. tokara
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      1

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      2 more exciting, but Robbo is a safe move

  15. Sead’s Colossal Snatc…

    Good morning all! Currently set up as below but have so many ideas, a little guidance appreciated!

    KDB --> Sterling probably worth a hit I imagine...

    Greenwood expected to start tonight?

    1. Who are all Lukakus

      • 3 Years

      Have him, but if he aces it, it will discombobulate our decisions to captain Stirling!

    Non RMT question for a change.

    Anyone know if there's anyway to find out the number of active players or just players in general playing FPL right now?

    Following from that, I know being in the top 10k is seen as elite, what ranks are seen as great/good/average etc?

      This might help.

      Hard to say how many players are considered 'active'

      Top 10K is considered elite.I'd say anything below top 200K are all active players with some minor exceptions.

      I read on the subreddit that there’s about 3M actually active accounts. Can’t remember if it was from a decent source, but that would make:
      Top 2M mediocre
      Top 1M decent
      Top 500k good
      Top 100k great
      Top 50k excellent
      Top 10k elite

    How is this looking chaps? On a FH. 0 ITB.

    Martinez
    Robertson Long Bardsley
    Salah Sterling Dilva Bruno Martial
    Kane (c) Auba (vc)

    3.9 Williams Nketiah 3.9

    1. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'd squeeze in one more City.

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      But where and who?

      1. aapoman
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Can you Robbo, Martial and Auba -> Tarkowski, Mane and Jesus. That could be gold

        1. Forever In Our Shadow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Good for thought. Thanks.

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

      Williams isnt the best 4.0 Johnson or thomas is better and starts

      1. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Williams is 3.8. Cheapest in the game. Don’t care if he starts or not.

  21. aapoman
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Pope
    TAA AWB Boly
    Salah KDB Mahrez Fernandes Foden
    Kane Greenwood

    3.9; Nketiah, Egan, Lamptey

    1ft and 2.3itb. Boly to Robertson as my final transfer?

  22. eamonhegg
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    FH team. Winning all my leagues. GTG?

    Is there a better front 7?? (dont look at the defence it will hurt your eyes)

    Martinez
    Pieter / Lampety / Branthwaite
    Stirling / Mane / D Silva / Son / Fernandez
    Kane / Auba

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      It’s up there but is there a worse defence?

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

        To be fair, GW38s tend to have a lot of goals.

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I agree but there is cheap and then there are a absolute garbage. Doherty TAA Robertson Tarkowski (& the Rest of the Burnley defence) could give you better value. I k is it means sacrifice but it will pay you back. Plus is Dilva enough City? they do play Norwich.

    What is that website where u can see your capitain stats vs the best possible captain choice ? Thanks
    I think this year I got my captain wrong pretty much all season

  24. Mackans
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    What option do you prefer?

    A. Martial, Robertson & Branthwaith
    B. Antonio, Trent & Aurier

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

      A

      1. Captain Scarlet
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A

  25. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Playing 3 at the back and currently have 2x BUR (Pieters + Long)

    Who would you go for to complete the set?

    1) Diop (AVL) Villa fighting for survival
    2) Branthwaite (BOU) Not guaranteed to start
    3) Bardsley (BHA) Triple Burnley defence

    1. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Bardsley

    2. Captain Scarlet
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      3

  26. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    I just know what is going to happen if I shift Jesus.

    What a troll he has been since bringing him in for Ings for GW36.

    But then again, Ings has only scored 1 point more.

    1. Captain Scarlet
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'm keeping - even if he doesn't start, I can see him coming off the bench and nicking one.

      jesus haul incoming, always happens, you lose faith and then bam, he hits you in the face with karma

  27. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Mane and Pulisic to Sterling cap and David Silva easy moves this week.

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would say so yes, but as a sterling owner, please stay away!

  28. jason_ni
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who would you prefer, I may go either 442 with auba or 451 with kdb

    A) Kdb ( have sterling & dilva)
    B) Auba

    Rest will be.
    Pope
    Bardsley - Pieters - TAA - Bavies
    Salah - Sterling - Dilva - Martial
    Kane

    Trip burnley def bit of a gamble, but I like the rest of the team!

    1. CFC1990
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Possibly A but its 50/50 that call.

    2. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Don't like Auba pick so A

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        its just all the eggs in 1 basket is kinda putting me off.. could be golden eggs tho!

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

    Which option:

    A) Pulisic (WOL) and Tarkowski (BHA)
    B) Vardy (MAN) and Brainthwaite (BOU) – or Maguire (lei)
    C) Mahrez (NOR) and Pieters (BHA) -4

    1. CFC1990
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

    2. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A

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

      A for me

  30. CFC1990
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    How about this FH team:

    Martinez
    Bardsley, Long, E Garcia
    D. Silva, Salah, Antonio, Fernandes, Sterling
    Aubameyang, Kane

    Button, Pieters, Nketiah, Williams

    0.4m itb

    Idea is to wait on Pep Press Conference and leaked Team News. Would rather Ederson as scared a defender will get subbed off before 60 mins.

    Pieters is there for if Garcia doesn't play.

      Very good side. We all have to gamble with Citeh choices.
      You have gone big up top.
      I prefer more investment for defenders.
      What is your TV?

    2. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Looks solid, I was set on martinez, but after last night, watford will need to fight for their lives, so have moved it about to keep pope as #1.

      Also personally prefer martial over bruno but that's a toss up!
