FPL Gameweek 38+ team news and injury updates

We had a bumper crop of press conferences to wade through on Friday as preparations continue for the final Gameweek of 2019/20.

All but two of the 20 Premier League managers faced the media today, with Mikel Arteta and Graham Potter having held virtual gatherings on Thursday.

We’ll run through the headline injury news and stand-out manager quotes for each fixture, with a more detailed discussion to follow in our Team News tab.

Manchester City v Norwich City

Any concern that Fantasy managers might have had about seeing Raheem Sterling in Saint-Tropez in midweek were assuaged by Pep Guardiola on Friday, with the City boss confirming that he had given his squad Wednesday and Thursday off.

Talking of that decision and the motivation for Sunday’s dead rubber against Norwich City, Guardiola said:

I gave [the players] two days [off] because we had a tough period after lockdown with games every three days. If you play against an opponent playing for something maybe I would not have given two days.

We need to see how the players are ready for Madrid. I know them quite well but this game against Norwich and the way they are going to train this week, we are going to pay attention to how prepared they are for Madrid.

Every game there has to be a target, a focus, a desire to win the game, and maybe, scoring 100 goals is one of the reasons why.

Guardiola wasn’t asked about any injuries but opposite number Daniel Farke had plenty to report, confirming that Emiliano Buendia (suspended), Josip Drmic (suspended), Alex Tettey (knee) and Timm Klose (hamstring) will miss the trip to the Etihad.

Long-term absentees Moritz Leitner (hernia), Grant Hanley (hamstring) and Sam Byram (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Leicester City v Manchester United

Brendan Rodgers will again be without Ben Chilwell (foot), Christian Fuchs (groin), Caglar Soyuncu (suspended) and James Maddison (hip) this weekend but Marc Albrighton (knock) is expected to recover in time.

Rodgers said of Albrighton on Friday:

He will have a final fitness test tomorrow, but he should be okay.

The Foxes don’t have any fresh fitness concerns.

In an interview with MUTV, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of Luke Shaw (ankle) and Eric Bailly (head):

We’re going to give them as much time as possible. I’m not going to rule anything out.

Newcastle United v Liverpool

There was nothing in the way of team news from the broadcast section of Jurgen Klopp’s presser, with the Liverpool manager’s media gathering dominated by talk of the title win, Jordan Henderson‘s player of the year award and a beef with Frank Lampard.

There was plenty to report in the north-east, however, with Isaac Hayden (hamstring) and Sean Longstaff (hamstring) potentially in line for a return but the Magpies still missing five of their six centre-halves.

Emil Krafth (knock) is also a doubt and Steve Bruce said:

We might have Isaac [Hayden] and Sean Longstaff. We’ve got a problem with Emil [Krafth], he took a nasty whack to his ankle, we’ll see how he is in the next 24 hours. If they come through, then Isaac and Sean might be available.

[Fabian Schär] has an operation this afternoon so we’re hoping 6-8 weeks and we’re hoping when the season is about to start that he’ll be there or thereabouts. That goes for Lascelles and all of the ones who are injured, Dummett, Clark.

Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers

N’Golo Kante (hamstring) may return for Chelsea’s clash with Wolves on Sunday, with Frank Lampard saying:

There’s a possibility that he’ll feature. He’s trained for the first time towards a match pace this morning, so that’s a decision I’ll have to make – talking with him and the medical team – to see if he’s ready to start.

Not for the first time this season, Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t report any injury concerns in his pre-match press conference and said that Raul Jimenez was “ready to go” following the birth of his daughter earlier this week.

Burnley v Brighton and Hove Albion

Charlie Taylor (hamstring), Jack Cork (ankle), Ben Mee (thigh), Matthew Lowton (foot) and Ashley Barnes (hernia) remain unavailable for Burnley this weekend, with Sean Dyche confirming that he wouldn’t blood any youngsters in their clash with Brighton:

No, I doubt it. With all due respect, some of the young players here are good players but I still don’t think many of them are quite ready to start. They might get a glimmer from the bench.

Jose Izquierdo (knee) and Steven Alzate (groin) are the only definite absentees we know about for Albion, with Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) and Bernardo (eye infection) thought to be fit.

Arsenal v Watford

Arsenal confirmed in a medical bulletin on Friday that Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) will miss the remaining league and cup matches of this season.

Bernd Leno (knee) is aiming to be back in full training next week, so Emiliano Martinez looks set to continue between the posts.

Calum Chambers (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle) and Gabriel Martinelli (knee) remain out.

Watford will make a late check on Etienne Capoue (knock), with interim boss Hayden Mullins saying:

No more fresh injury worries. Étienne [Capoue] is going to train tomorrow. Étienne’s been having treatment so we’re going to have a look and see if he’s available tomorrow for us to train and have a look at him.

Southampton v Sheffield United

Chris Wilder said that Sheffield United have got “a few issues” heading into Gameweek 38+, with the Blades boss citing fatigue and knocks.

Jan Bednarek (muscle) should be back for the Saints, meanwhile, with Ralph Hasenhuttl saying:

He is back in training, and fit and available for the weekend. Injury wise, we have Sofiane (Boufal) and Moussa (Djenepo) still out, but the rest are fit.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Tanguy Ndombele (unspecified) is his only injury-related absentee on Sunday with Dele Alli (hamstring) now fit.

Eric Dier also returns from a four-match ban.

Mamadou Sakho (muscle) has joined Gary Cahill (hamstring), James Tomkins (thigh), Patrick van Aanholt (shoulder) and Christian Benteke (suspended) on the sidelines for the visit of Spurs but Luka Milivojevic (knee) could make a swift reappearance, with Roy Hodgson saying on Friday:

The only one who may have a chance is Luka. He missed training yesterday and trained today. We’ll wait and see if there’s any reaction to the knee when we get together tomorrow.

Everton v Bournemouth

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed on Friday that Yerry Mina (thigh), Jean-Philippe Gbamin (knee), Fabian Delph (muscle) and Mason Holgate (shin) will miss the visit of Bournemouth, so teenager Jarrad Branthwaite looks poised to continue alongside Michael Keane at centre-half.

Moise Kean was passed fit by the Toffees so he could be line for a start based on Ancelotti’s comments last Monday.

Eddie Howe revealed that Bournemouth will have to “wait and see” on whether Nathan Ake (groin) will be able to feature at Goodison Park but Adam Smith (concussion) should return.

On Ake, Howe said:

He’s got a very minor groin problem, so we’ll wait and see whether he’s available, that’s still undecided.

Whether he’s fit enough to play from the injury side and also from the fact that he hasn’t trained or really done anything between the injury and now, we’ll make a very late call on him.

West Ham United v Aston Villa

Neil Taylor (hamstring) could be back in contention after making a return to training but Ahmed Elmohamady (hamstring) will miss Aston Villa’s all-important match with West Ham United, which will force Dean Smith into at least one change for the trip to east London.

David Moyes didn’t provide any update on Jarrod Bowen (knock) or Aaron Cresswell (knock) in the broadcast section of his presser but the former was spotted in training ground photos and his manager had previously said that he “didn’t think” there was anything to be concerned about.


More detailed information and predicted line-ups can be found in the Team News tab, which will be refreshed before the Gameweek 38+ deadline at 15:00 BST on Sunday.

    KDB or Mahrez?

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      KDB

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

      kdb

      KDB.

    4. syke63

      Really guys? I'm on Mahrez. I must be misreading the signals.

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

        Don't doubt yourself, I prefer Mahrez this week too.

  2. osceola31909

    I'm surprised Sterling is not even higher on the Captain's poll. Is it the fear of rotation that is causing concern?

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

      loads of great options i suppose

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The Saint-Tropez escapade has put me off tbh....

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

        going to st tropez for them is like going down to the local park for people like us, wouldnt read much into it to be honest.

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          You might be right, but I just think its a bit disrespectful towards Norwich. On top of that Pep has just said if they were not playing Norwich he wouldnt have given them time off.... If Farke needed something to motivate his players for the game...

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

            He does, but it aint that

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

      He's top by a landslide

      1. osceola31909
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        35%. I would expect it to be 60% or so. I don't even own him, though I am likely bringing him. Kane is a good pick. Salah probably is too. But with the way Sterling has been playing, and up against Norwich, it just seems he would have even more votes. Especially after his comments about wanting 20 goals.

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

          I don't think anyone reaches 60% on here, a nailed on Salah week might get him 50+ but it's unlikely for a City player to ever be able to match that. Simply because City as a team have so many routes to points and players like KDB (best player, high ownership), Jesus (main striker), David Silva (last game) will eat into Sterling's votes

    4. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years

      The easiest captain choice of the season unless you’re chasing a rival that will def captain him

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

        I don't agree with this pick a differential if chasing business. If you genuinely believe that Sterling will be the highest scorer, then picking anyone else would only get you less points.

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

          I get your point. But disagree. Captain is the best chance at a big overhaul of points. A lot of teams are similar, even more so with all the free hits so a differential captain could be vital to many

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

    Hi all. Trying to get a top 10k for the first time. Currently 9k and 4pts ahead of 10k, but FH is gone and only have 1FT.

    Team is:
    Patricio
    TAA, Doherty, Pieters
    Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Pulisic, Bruno Vardy, Rashford
    (Greenwood only active sub)

    Options are
    A) Bruno to Dilva for free
    B) Bruno, Vardy to Dilva, Kane for -4 C) Bruno, Vardy, Mahrez to Silva, Nketiah, Sterling -8
    D) Bruno, Mahrez, Doherty to Dilva, Sterling, Branthwaite for -8

    Am I right to go with option B and risk no Sterling?

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

      i think you cab forget 10k with -8. 1 prefer a unless you captain kane. gl

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

      I’m a Vardy owner and reasonably confident he’ll do ok, but I’d go B in your position

  4. Totti
    • 4 Years

    guys what about the credibility of fpl subscribe, scarface, sam martin and fpl pirate in lineup leakage?
    are they trusted?

    1. Vazza
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I’ve heard scarface is good, not sure about the others though

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

        accuracy percentage?

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

          Should have a section of their percentages in Member's Area.

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

            i'm not a member

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

        Thought Scarface only does City players not all teams, could be wrong

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      fpl subscribe is horrible

      1. Totti

            Cheers. Good luck as well!

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

    My rival has Sterling, KDB & Jesus, I need to get different player to him so will be getting DSilva to go along with Sterling.

    Who gets the final spot :

    A. KDB
    B. Jesus

    I'm only 5 points behind, so I think this might the key decision as to who wins

    1. Mr Imp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A out of those two, but if you want to either boom or bust against your rival then Mahrez may be worth thinking about too?

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

        I've owned Mahrez for the past 6 weeks, he has burned be enough. He'll probably haul now, lol

    2. syke63
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Why copy him?

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

        He hasn't got a FH so his moves are limited. I'm banking on Kane, Auba & Salah winning me the league but as a backup I want Silva too.

        1. syke63
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Ok, I get it. He can't get those three without a hit so you could be good there. Early team news could be your best friend but I like the Mahrez call if he starts.

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If he plays...Jesus, a city striker vs Norwich has limitless ceiling

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

        The way City play, their front 3 are very fluid. Jesus doesn't act as a focal point the way Antonio, Giroud or Wood might. Not saying he's a bad option, just saying it's a bit more complicated than all forwards have a field day against Norwich.

        1. FDMS All Starz
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Norwich will sit back and city will flood the box, he will be there for the tap ins

  9. Ray In Bruges.
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    11 Points back of the leader - WC played

    1.2 ITB

    Pope (3.9)
    TAA Pieters Branthwaite (Williams, Tanganga)
    Pulisic Fernandes Martial KDB (Dendoncker)
    Kane Jimenez Jesus

    Thinking DSilva or Mahrez for one of the ManU lads. Any feedback appreciated.

  10. HD7
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Fernandez to Walker/Laporte -4?
    Newcastle will probably concede a few goals.

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would do the -4, but not to Walker/Laporte. They could start on the bench or get substituted at 58 minutes. I would get Aurier or a Burnley defender.

      1. HD7
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I have Pope. Not sure If I need do double

    2. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Walker only if nailed to start as he’s got potential of assists. Aurier is a great shout too by osce

  11. Muscout
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    KDB
    Sterling
    Silva
    Jesus
    Mahrez

    Pick 3 on FH?

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

      I have 234. Can't afford 245 with money spent elsewhere.

    2. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      2 3 is a must for me

      1vs 5 is hard. Extra money can go elsewhere too

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

      First 3

    4. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      234

  12. BDA Shadow
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Straight pick between KDB and Bruno?

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

      Kdb

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

      KDB

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

      KDB easy

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Well this was overwhelming, cheers fellas.

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

    Any Free Hitters doubting Auba as a wise choice

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

      Bench duties possibly

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

      Think he’ll play - got Vardy, Jesus, Ings

      Thinking Kane and Ings plus either Jesus or Aubam.

      Aubam hit or miss recently but has a good record v Watford.

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      He will play but Watford will frustrate arsenal, and arsenal might take off key players if game is won

  14. DRAFTSNAKE
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Here are some cheap chaser differential punts for y'all on a free hit to consider
    Def: AMN, Reece James, Branthwaite, Ritchie, Lundstram
    Mid: Trossard, Nelson, Stanislas, AOC, Armstrong, Soucek, Trezeguet
    FW: Jota, Gayle, Origi, Adams, Nketiah

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Solanke and Moura are a couple of more.

      Do you think origi or Lund will start?

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

        I think there is a good chance they will. They are both loyal squad players that need to be rewarded to keep them keen. Plus they both have HUGE point ceilings so why not. Moura is a good pick too but I was just listing the cheapies.

    2. syke63
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      You left out Lallana.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Based on IG love he’s gonna start isn’t he

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

        I did a Klopp.

    3. dontyouknowimloko

    Watched the scout cast video and Andy one very useful information. Now wondering should I just make minus 12 currently 12pts ahead I don't own Sterling my rival has him no doubt he will take out Vardy for Kane most likely cheeky cap Kane. Do I block him bring in Sterling and Kane and Pieters for KDB Ings TAA. Worried a year playing going to last game week.

    Thoughts on Liverpool assets on fh? Have nothing to play for and probably a bit hungover from partying. Also have way less time between matches than Newcastle. Do you think there’s any chance there’s some rotation and they give some youth players a chance?

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

      Think Jones and Williams start. Possibly Origi/Lallana as they’re off

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Hadn’t thought about those leaving. Do you think they’ll start because of that

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

          Apparently not lallana then. Most likely is rest is one full back

    2. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Very much doubt they will rotate players for last game. They could have rotated ages ago when they won league but never did. I’m expecting full strength team

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

      Trent

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

      I can't see any rotation except Jones, Lallana is not is even the squad for the game so you can tick that one off

        Source?

  17. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Pulisic or Antonio? First to three!

    1. Father72
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Puli for me...

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Puli

    3. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Puli aswell

  18. ZTF
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Chasing 17 pts on someone with a FH.

    Sell one:
    A) Pulisic
    B) Martial

    Captain one:
    1) Dilva
    2) Sterling
    3) Salah
    4) Bruno

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sell Pulisic
      Cap Sterling/Salah (who ever he doesn’t own)

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A.1 assuming you’re rival captains raheem

  19. Father72
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    So I need some advice / clarity from anyone...

    A) KDB and Rash or B) Kane/Auba and Mahrez? If B, who is the better choice out of Kane and Auba and why?

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

      B. Kane. He’s on form against a team on the beach and previous last day form shows what he’s capable of

      1. Father72
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Thanks Saint!

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

          Auba could be benched easily. Good luck

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B, Kane playing for Europa spot against a club with nothing to play for, arsenal have nothing to play for with a club fighting for their lives + they have a cup final in a week so might hook players early if game is won

  20. Mac90
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Predict their scores:

    Mahrez
    Debryune
    Ings
    Greenwood
    Antonio

    This will make my choices easier

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

      Ings, then KDB

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      8
      8
      13
      2
      3

  21. SouthCoastSaint

    Quite happy for people to talk themselves out of Sterling (c) !

    1. Alexis Nonsense
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Quite annoying when people post comments like this to change their minds again 😛

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

        Easiest (c) of the season for me. Only reason to do something else if it would cost -8 plus or a rival with def captain and you’re forced to chase

    2. redsallstars
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yep be madness not to captain him

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

      I'm on Sterling TC!

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

      I own him but Im cap Harry Hattrick Kane

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

        Own him too. Best other option with KDB and dilva imo

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, there are very good options indeed, and you never know it might come out of the blue from somewhere...

      2. Bielsa's Blue Bucket
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Such a bullshyt gw38 with that fixture and £ on pens makes it impossible not to captain him

  22. Alexis Nonsense
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Looks like my differential this gw is sadly going to be DCL 😛

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      LOL. I finally sold him before last Gameweek.

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Hattrick incoming 🙂

    2. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hes been gold ehh

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

      If you’ve held this long I hope you’re treated to a haul

  23. Vazza
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who’s going to get more points this week -

    A. Doherty
    B. Bruno

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

      B, can’t see wolves keeping Chelsea out

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      B easily

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

      B

  24. Cheeto__Bandito
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Kane won’t rise tonight I don’t think, usually when players reach threshold this late it doesn’t happen

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

    Probably a stupid question but if you sell someone on free hit and decide you want them back in can you get them back in at the price you sold them for or do you have to pay the full price?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Full price

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

      Full price

  26. Will J 256

    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who will score more pulisic or ings?

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

      Ings. Will probably be on corners and free kicks too!! COYR!

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Puli looks possessed by a demon right now....

  27. Totti
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    best 3 to have from city?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling silva and their striker Jesus is my guess

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling Mahrez Dilva

    3. Bring back Rafa
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I've gone with Sterling, Dilva & Mahrez. But equally a case could be made for Jesus or KDB.
      Many have opted for a defender which is better than only picking 2 I guess.

      My reasons for the 3 are none of them played 90min on their last game and I like having 3 midfielders as they get an extra point for a clean sheet (almost guaranteed) and extra points for goals/assists in which there should be loads of.

  28. smash
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    -8 can get me this, shipping Greenwood/Bruno/Saiss

    Pope
    Gomez - Pieters - Bardsley
    Salah - Sterling - Martial - DSilver
    Jesus - Kane - Nketiah

    Button, Lampty, Davies, Boly

    Last roll of the dice 12pts in front of mini league, hard to say without seeing rivals team but looks ok on paper right?

    1. FDMS All Starz
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Good team, monitor team leaks...might be worth starting your original defenders instead of selling Saiss for a -4

    2. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Leading and taking hits like that?

      1. smash
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Rival already has Kane/Aubamayang where I have Greenwood/Nkeita so need to cover some of his firepower only way is by taking a minus 4 unfortunately, extra hit again for some security in defence, he'll take a hit also I think? - Such a unique gameweek can see points from all angles, will definitely gonna monitor the team news

        Cheers guys

  29. Marmalade Forest
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    I hate myself for asking...

    A) Bruno + Auba or
    B) Sterling + Rashford

    Had 100 drafts of this and I’m presently on

    Martinez
    TAA/Robbo/Long
    Dilva/Mane/Mahrez/Martial/X
    Gwood/X

  30. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Have two free hit drafts at the moment. Which one do you prefer. I know it’s frustrating, but would really appreciate your thoughts as the gap between me and my rival is tight
    1:
    Pope
    Trent, Aurier, Pieters
    Salah, Sterling, D Silva, Mahrez
    Kane, Ings, Greenwood

    2:
    Pope
    Trent, Aurier, Pieters
