The best mid-price FPL midfielders for 2020/21

Having scoured the Fantasy Premier League price list for the pick of the budget midfielders, we now switch our focus to the mid-price bracket.

For the purposes of this piece, we are looking at options with a starting price between £5.5m and £7.0m inclusive.

You can also read our thoughts on budget goalkeepersmid-price/premium goalkeepersbudget defenders and mid-price/premium defenders, with an analysis of FPL forwards to follow.

Big-Six Starters and Back-Ups

This could be a big season for Phil Foden (£6.5m), who has long been touted as a replacement for the now-departed David Silva.

After being sparingly used before the coronavirus outbreak, Foden was more heavily involved after lockdown, starting six of Manchester City’s final 10 league games and appearing as a substitute in another three.

Foden delivered six attacking returns and averaged 5.6 points per match over this period (the same as Son Heung-min‘s (£9.0m) season-long mean), although it should be said that most of his joy was had in a more advanced position to the one Silva occupied during his decade at the Etihad.

Rotation is inevitable even with ‘El Mago’ gone and, at £6.5m rather than £5.5m, his price makes him that bit harder to own as a luxury pick.

But the 20-year-old prospect is definitely one for the watchlist for when Guardiola’s troops begin their campaign in Gameweek 2 and he offers a substantial saving on even the likes of Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m), who doesn’t look much more ‘nailed’ than Foden.

Elsewhere at City, the jury is still out on new arrival Ferran Torres (£7.0m), while the more restrained Rodri (£5.5m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m) will only chip in with the occasional attacking return from the base of the City midfield.

Gomez absent for Liverpool as more injuries revealed after FPL deadline

There’s a gap of £5.5m between Liverpool’s two free-scoring premium assets and any other Reds midfielder, which likely tells you all you need to know about the other options from Jurgen Klopp’s side in the middle of the park.

Other than Harry Wilson (£5.5m), who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, only club captain Jordan Henderson (£5.5m) registered more than five attacking returns among Liverpool’s nine-strong group of mid-price midfielders.

The more attack-minded Naby Keita (£5.5m) is potentially one to monitor after two goals and three assists in just 806 minutes in 2019/20 but it’s in the engine room where Klopp more frequently rotates, while the likes of Takumi Minamino (£6.5m) will be reliant on injuries picked up by the first-choice front three for meaningful game-time.

Game-time could also be a huge problem for Callum Hudson-Odoi, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley (all £6.0m) after Chelsea’s lavish spending in the transfer market this summer, with Kai Havertz also being heavily linked at the time of writing.

Even Mason Mount (£7.0m) may be nervously monitoring the Blues’ in-bound activity, having been a favourite of Frank Lampard’s last season.

Mount – who delivered six of his 13 attacking returns in the first ten Gameweeks of 2019/20 – appeared in all but one of Chelsea’s 38 league fixtures last season, starting 32 of them, but would be a sizeable rotation risk if attacking midfielder Havertz also arrives.

Arsenal’s four mid-price assets are either underwhelming or problematically priced, with Willian‘s (£8.0m) capture potentially eating into the game-time of former budget favourite Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) – who has been handed a £1m starting price rise – and Reiss Nelson (£5.5m).

Who knows what the future holds for Mesut Ozil (£7.0m) after his late-season disappearing act but, even when he was a regular under Mikel Arteta, two attacking returns in ten starts is reflective of his waning powers.

Granit Xhaka (£5.5m) is no longer a set-piece specialist at Arsenal (he took only one corner last season) and is also perhaps half a million too pricey as a result.

Manchester United’s quartet of midfield options in the £5.5m-£6.5m bracket managed just two starts between them after lockdown and, barring any injuries picked up by the first-team regulars, will be expecting to play second fiddle when the Red Devils’ season gets underway in Gameweek 2.

Lucas Moura (£7.0m) and Giovani Lo Celso (£7.0m) are perhaps the pick of Spurs’ five mid-priced midfielders, with the Lilywhites gifted some favourable fixtures at the start of 2020/21.

Lo Celso has enjoyed a share of corners since Christian Eriksen departed and featured in a more advanced role after lockdown, claiming three assists.

Lucas was also a regular down the right flank when football resumed in June and set up two goals, although he and Lo Celso didn’t score a goal or register a big chance between them.

Lo Celso could also potentially move into a deeper role to accommodate Dele Alli‘s (£8.0m) return, while Lucas faces the permanent threat of rotation with Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m) now an alternative on the wing.

Newly Promoted Assets

The four most advanced Leeds United midfielders in behind their central striker will all set FPL managers back at least £5.5m.

The most expensive of them is Pablo Hernandez (£6.0m), who supplied 18 attacking returns in the Whites’ title-winning year.

Unlike his creative counterpart at West Bromwich Albion (see below), however, 35-year-old Hernandez may be prone to a spot of rotation as the season goes on.

He doesn’t have the monopoly at set-play situations, either, so there are understandable reservations about the undeniably gifted Spaniard.

Wingers Helder Costa and Jack Harrison plus the penalty-taking Mateusz Klich will all set Fantasy bosses back £5.5m, the last two of whom both started all bar one of Leeds’ 46 Championship games.

We’ll point you in the direction of our dedicated piece on Leeds’ attacking assets for more information on that trio, although we’ll also highlight the fact that loanee Harrison will be ineligible to face his parent club in Gameweek 4.

Matheus Pereira (£6.0m) is, arguably, the stand-out midfielder from any of the three promoted clubs and he comes at a cost as a result.

A total of 16 assists (and that’s discounting ‘Fantasy assists’), 116 key passes and 20 big chances created were not only highs in the West Brom squad but bettered by no other player in the entire Championship.

No Albion player could match Pereira’s shot count (111) last season, either.

On a share of corner-taking duties and first in line for direct free-kicks, Pereira may offer multiple routes to Fantasy points in an otherwise limited Albion attack.

The chances of wingers Kamil Grosicki (£5.5m) and Matt Phillips (£5.5m) starting in Gameweek 1 may well hinge on who else West Brom bring in over the summer, as Slaven Bilic is down three loanees – all of them attacking midfielders – who played a big part in 2019/20.

You can read a more detailed appraisal of Albion’s midfielders here.

Given their inconsistency against inferior opposition in 2019/20 and the fact they were in and out of the Fulham side at the end of the season, wingers Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.5m) and Anthony Knockaert (£5.5m) have limited appeal at this early stage.

The deeper-lying Tom Cairney (£5.5m) was a more nailed pick under Scott Parker but, given Fulham’s relative shortage of goals in the second tier and Cairney’s meagre FPL returns two years ago, there’ll be understandable scepticism about the Scotland international.

Top-Half Options

There is a lot to like about a Europa League-less Wolves, not least their fixture run from Gameweeks 3-7.

But while Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) offers reliability in terms of starts, the one or two slots alongside him appear to be up for grabs.

If any of Adama Traore (£6.5m), Daniel Podence (£5.5m), Pedro Neto (£5.5m) and the reclassified Diogo Jota (£6.5m) were considered secure starters, then they’d be featuring in a lot more FPL team drafts than they are at present.

Take the post-lockdown period, for example: while Jimenez was an ever-present in the season run-in, not one of the above quartet started more than six of Wolves’ final nine matches.

Perhaps the fixture congestion played a part in that but in truth the uncertainty went further back in the calendar year, with Nuno Espirito Santo alternating between a 3-5-2 and a 3-4-3 from February onwards.

The hope would be for the stability we saw in the middle third of last season but with the emergence of Podence especially, the situation looks too unpredictable at present.

2019/20 felt like a slightly underwhelming one for James Maddison (£7.0m) from a Fantasy perspective, with the England international being outscored by teammate Harvey Barnes (£7.0m).

The underlying data suggests this was something of a freak occurrence, with Maddison registering half the assists that Barnes managed despite creating over twice as many chances.

Barnes does admittedly pose the greater goal threat of the two, getting into the opposition box and shooting on a more frequent basis, but while Maddison is a shoo-in to feature if fit, his teammate is less secure: in the post-lockdown era, Barnes made more substitute appearances than starts.

Ayoze Perez‘s (£6.5m) ability to play on the right or centrally meant he was slightly less at risk of rotation as Brendan Rodgers switched formation in the run-in but he was still the most-substituted Premier League player of 2019/20, averaging only 61.2 minutes per appearance.

Some decent opening fixtures for the Foxes are tempered by Europa League involvement and poor form this calendar year (four wins and eight defeats in their last 17 league matches), so a cure for their 2020 hangover is needed before they seriously re-enter the thinking.

Lundstram benched again as Fantasy owners consider selling the 'Lord'

A reclassification and a price hike were inevitable for John Lundstram (£5.5m) after his memorable 2019/20 but he is still cheaper than current teammate John Fleck (£6.0m), who looks a tad expensive.

What Fleck likely has over Lundstram is security of starts, with Sander Berge‘s (£5.0m) arrival and a contract saga potentially leaving the former ‘out of position’ FPL defender on the cusp of a Bramall Lane exit.

It’ll still be worth keeping tabs on Lundstram if he makes a move to another Premier League team, as he registered more big chances last season than any other sub-£6.0m midfielder in this article.

It goes without saying that he’ll be worse off as a Fantasy midfielder: he would have lost out on around 40 points had he been classified properly in 2019/20.

Fleck registered two fewer attacking returns than Lundstram, meanwhile, so doesn’t scream ‘value for money’.

Fantasy managers know they are getting security of starts with their Burnley assets, and Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) and Ashley Westwood (£5.5m) were both nailed picks last season.

The parallels were striking: both scored twice, set up seven goals, started every match they were available for and shared set-piece duties.

Winger McNeil offers that bit extra creativity from open play, of course, and his expected goal involvement (xGI) suggested he should have delivered two more attacking returns than his teammate.

It’s also worth keeping an eye on the fitness of Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.5m), whose glass calves restricted him to just six starts in 2019/20.

On his day he’s capable of an assist or two and the right-wing spot is there for the taking at present, with the Clarets’ squad paper-thin.

Don’t forget, though: Burnley blank in Gameweek 1.

The Best – and Worst – of the Rest

No sub-£7.5m FPL midfielder ‘underachieved’ more than James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) in 2019/20, with his two missed spot-kicks not helping his xGI delta.

It remains to be seen if Ward-Prowse remains on penalty-taking duties following his two misses from 12 yards, with the Golden Boot-chasing Danny Ings (£8.5m) allowed to take two penalties in the run-in.

No player took more corners than Ward-Prowse last season and he is a constant menace from both indirect and direct free-kicks, which is a good job as his threat from open play has taken a downward trajectory since his move to a ‘number six’ role in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s 4-2-2-2.

Someone who thrived in that new system was Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m), who established himself as one of the two ‘number tens’ ahead of Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) and Moussa Djenepo (£5.5m).

Not as nailed as Ward-Prowse or the slightly overpriced Nathan Redmond (£6.5m) due to Hasenhuttl’s management of his minutes, he nevertheless registered more goals and shots than any Saints player bar Ings from Gameweek 13 onwards (the point of the pivotal tactical reshuffle).

No mid-price midfielder in this article has indeed scored or shot on more occasions than Armstrong in 2020 so far, even if most of those efforts came from distance.

Only relegated Norwich City scored fewer goals than Crystal Palace last season and, with Roy Hodgson still at the helm, it’s hard to see Wilfried Zaha (£7.0m) and co being transformed into a gung-ho attacking side in 2020/21.

Zaha did register more penalty box touches and shots in the opposition area in 2019/20 than any other midfielder now priced at £7.0m or under, while he has averaged over 16 FPL returns per season across the last four years; last year’s haul of four goals and six assists lowering that mean.

A lack of penalties killed Luka Milivojevic‘s (£6.0m) appeal after two seasons of spot-kick joy, meanwhile.

It’s perhaps worth keeping an eye on Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m) in pre-season, with the Ghanaian deployed as an out-of-position striker in the 2-1 friendly win over Oxford United.

Down the M23, Adam Lallana has it all to prove at an inflated £6.5m after years of inertia at Anfield.

Graham Potter’s bloated squad and his predilection for rotation will be enough to put most FPL managers off Brighton assets, despite the promising team he is building.

Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) is the obvious standout name from the Seagulls but even the Belgian, who posed the biggest goal threat of Albion’s midfield assets and who enjoyed the odd ‘out of position’ run-out up front, still warmed the benched on 12 occasions in 2019/20.

Much is expected of Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m) in his first full season on the south coast but his rawness was evident in the run-in and he remains low down on the watchlist for now.

There was some bemusing pricing of Aston Villa assets going on at FPL Towers upon the game’s relaunch, with the listing of Jota at £6.0m the most baffling decision.

Reported Manchester United target Jack Grealish (£7.0m) is fairly priced, though.

While the Villa talisman only delivered two attacking returns in his final 15 appearances, it shouldn’t be forgotten how impressive he was before that point.

Grealish racked up seven goals, six assists and 14 bonus points in the first 23 Gameweeks of the campaign, averaging a very respectable 5.0 points per match over this period.

Despite the barren run in the final third of the campaign, Grealish still finished first for overall score (149) and points per match (4.1) among sub-£7.5m midfielders (discounting the reclassified Matt Ritchie (£5.0m) and Lundstram).

Only De Bruyne created more chances than Grealish in 2019/20.

Trezeguet (£5.5m) was Villa’s form midfielder in the run-in, scoring three goals, but only Grealish, Douglas Luiz (£5.0m) and perhaps John McGinn (£5.5m) look truly secure in Dean Smith’s XI, with rotation commonplace throughout last season.

McGinn looked off the pace after recovering from a long-term lay-off so it will be interesting to see if a pre-season regime has helped him recover his stamina levels after an impressive start to 2019/20.

Pre-season has started well for Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.0m), who scored twice and set up another in the Toffees’ 3-3 draw with Blackpool.

The consensus seems to be that the Icelander needs a number ten role to maximise his potential, something that wasn’t afforded to him until Carlo Ancelotti switched from a 4-4-2 to a 4-2-3-1 in Gameweek 37+.

Everton were back in a 4-4-2 at the weekend, however, with Sigurdsson offering little from open play and reliant on a corner, a free-kick and penalty for his three attacking returns against Blackpool – not that FPL managers care a jot where their goals and assists come from.

The Toffees’ five midfield assets at £5.5m-£6.0m were equally underwhelming in 2019/20, so there’ll be few takers from that quintet despite the decent opening run of games.

FPL managers may be leaving West Ham assets well alone until the fixture swing in Gameweek 9 but Jarrod Bowen (£6.5m) is the stand-out name from the Hammers’ seven-strong group of mid-price midfielders, having made a big impression since his move from Hull City.

The winger was an ever-present starter from Gameweek 28 onwards, setting up four goals in the post-lockdown era alone.

Pablo Fornals (£6.5m) also made the starting XI in every game from this point but was less eye-catching and David Moyes has a wealth of attacking midfield options waiting in the wings, including Manuel Lanzini (£6.5m), Robert Snodgrass (£6.0m), Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) and returning loanee Grady Diangana (£5.5m).

Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) is the highest-owned FPL midfielder under £6.0m at the time of writing, although his eye-catching displays haven’t always been converted into FPL points during his time on Tyneside.

His minutes-per-xGI figure was the best of Newcastle United’s midfielders last season but that average paled in comparison to many other assets in his Fantasy position and the lack of a clinical striker up top for the Magpies sometimes meant his fine work out wide went unrewarded.

The change to a more attacking 4-2-3-1 in March seemed to remove the shackles from Steve Bruce’s side, with five of Saint-Maximin’s eight attacking returns in 2019/20 arriving in the final ten Gameweeks.

Jonjo Shelvey (£5.5m) is an interesting alternative at this price point: the deep-lying playmaker had the best points-per-match average (4.0) of any sub-£6.0m midfielder in this article bar the reclassified Lundstram and Ritchie, with his involvement at free-kicks and corners integral to his returns.

    Just finished reading this article by Adam Bate on Messis' numbers in the previous seasons. Good read and shows how easily he can eclipse all other players stats if he decides to come. The best thing is he hasn't shown any signs of slowing down, the PL will be lit with him.

    ASM looks like best of the 5.5 to start with.
    No point in going for Armstrong just for the sake of a Southampton attacker. Not worth rotation risk maybe ......

      I'm on Armstrong at the moment, Saints a better attacking side than Newcastle and have a good extended fixture run. If he gets dropped then hopefully another budget lad emerges as they always seem to do 🙂

      1. Amey

        Definitely ....
        Can get ASM himself with a simple swap.

        Thank you.

        The style of Southampton which might suggest he might sit out a game or two when games come fast. But should be fine at the start right ??

        Hmmmm

          Yeah I think rotation won't be as bad to start with as the fixtures are more spread out over Xmas, only worry is if he is in bad form and is dropped. With the cheap lads we aren't expecting a lot anyway. I'll take 1 goal every 4 weeks or so with someone his price.

          1. Amey

            Output is not an issue yeah ...
            Maybe we should buy the talisman theory with ASM ?
            😉

            Unless the sheikh comes in again and buy Messi that is ....

    2. Pukki Blinders

      I have both at the moment although will consider Saka if he's prominent in Commy S. Between the 2 though, I marginally prefer Armstrong, simply because he's got better quality to aim at.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years

        Yeah ....
        Better attacking team for sure

    TAA,Dier,Saiss,KWP
    Salah,Auba,ASM,Armstrong
    Werner,Mitrovic

    Fabri, Ferguson, Davis, Fernandes

    Fernandes can slot in after gw1 blank

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Why not. I'd prefer another 4.5 def over Dier

      1. tomasjj
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Me too.
        I'd go Taylor.

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

      Pretty strong team. Not much to critique here from me.

    3. chilli con kone
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      If you downgrade ASM and Amrstrong to Soucek and Richie and squeeze the defence a little bit you could get Robertson in for Dier

  5. No Professionals

    Finding the son dilemma tricky, if I start with him he’s my route to fernandes, but think at 9.0m he’s a gift with those fixtures. Thinking about starting with Kane instead and benching fernandes which means I keep a spurs attacker.

    McCarthy
    TAA Davies Vinagre Saliba
    Salah Aubameyang ASM Soucek
    Kane Mitrovic

    Button Mitchell Fernandes Brewster*

    Once fernandes is in the team, soucek rotates on a 2 out of 3 with the 4.5m defenders.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Son great value

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

      But isn't the whole argument that Son is the value pick? If he is, don't worry about coverage and just pick him up.

      1. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        It is, but I’m struggling to get son son and fernandes without going cheap up top and I want to keep my team flexible.

        Basically it comes down to Chelsea or spurs in terms of which team I ignore attacking wise.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Struggle until you figure it out haha

          Currently rocking Salah, Fernandes, Ziyech, Son, Werner.

          If I need a premium, I can do like Son + Ziyech out to KdB + 5.5m. It's fairly flexible and yet has a lot of high ceiling explosive picks with good fixtures.

    3. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Starting with Kane is smart because it allows you to get any striker in the game should you need them.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        That's not a good argument. That's like saying getting Mane is smart because you can downgrade him to whoever you want.

        It hurts the team structure to get a 12.0m and floats cash if you downgrade.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Well I've done that too. Kane starts with good fixtures, and if he bombs, I'll have had a look at how Werner starts, Vardy copes ahead of that defence, Martial is doing etc. Could even hop to Aguero if he exploded. Don't see any downside, really.

    Anyone here feels Salah (C) v Bielsa will be a low return?

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      No I think Liverpool will score 3/4.

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

      Yeah - feel the value may be with Mane or Auba

    3. Netley Lucas
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Leeds will go there to play football so Pool will get plenty of chances. Mo is a solid cap but Aubs @ful can beat him, on a good day.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Or Vardy at WBA?

        1. Netley Lucas
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          I think I'd like to see Foxes and how they set-up before investing in Vardy. Rogers does like to muck about.

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            11 months, 4 days ago

            True

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes but I don't see a better option

    5. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      They appear to have a big, White-sized hole in defence. Could be scary.

  7. My heart goes Salalalalah

    Seems like most on here think that Messi will dominate if he should join City, or any PL team for that matter. He no CR7...

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      City are perfect for him, don’t think people think he would dominate if he joined Burnley.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Join Burnley? He'd buy Burnley, as in all of Burnley!

        1. Third Eye Vision
          • 8 Years

          MESSI BUYS ALL OF BURNLEY

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

      Read the article at the top of this page's comments. He's an alien. He'll eclipse anything CR7 achieved at MUN.

    3. Klaren
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Of course he is no CR7, he is much better, the best football player in history.

    4. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      yeah, hes a better player than Ron

  8. Ronniie
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Son + Tierney or Alli + Doherty. Thoughts please

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      C. Son + AMN (if he signs for wolves)

  9. FOO FIGHTER

    Here is what Pep had to say about Messi back in February.

    "He is a player from Barcelona and he will stay there, that’s my wish for him to stay there,” he said. “I’m not going to talk about players playing for other clubs. I think he will finish his career there, that’s my wish.”

    Why am I picturing Messi staying and Pep back at Barca next sesson lol. Not out of the question...

    1. JustSomeGuy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      He's just being respectful, and it's another way of saying 'As good as he is, we're not paying £700m to sign him'

      1. Ben White saved my life

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

      I think Messi has crossed a line he can't come back from.

      He handed in a transfer request, he's fallen out with the president, he doesn't like the new manager. Even if he gets his wish and Bartolomeu is removed, the team is still a shell of what it once was and Koeman is still manager. Suarez and the old guard are being shooed out.

      I think this is it. End of an era.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Koeman won't be the manager if Barty goes. Messi's man comes in, Xavi is manager, Messi effectively hand-picks the rest of the board, will see out his playing career and get the pick of his post-playing positions at the club.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          They will get rid of Koeman literally days after signing him? I dunno... I don't think Messi is that powerful nor that he wants to dictate everything about Barca.

        2. Party time
            11 months, 4 days ago

            Messi told the board to sign a Jesse Plemons but then board made a mistake & brought in Koeman

      2. Klaren
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        He’ll probably retire at Barca but he might leave for 2 seasons or so and wait for Bartomeu to be pushed out of the club after the club hits rock bottom in the next 2 seasons.

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Bartomeu will be gone by next season. They have election in March, I think. It is only that Messi doesn't have time to waste this season and wait for Xavi to rebuild the team later.

      3. Party time
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Give it a break mate except you are a Barca fan & you want him to stay

      4. Fernandito
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        A Kane & Ziyech
        B Werner & Son

        1. No Professionals
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Had this same question, probably B

        2. teneighty
          • 6 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          I'm on B

      5. Ben White saved my life
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Expect Messi to be put in as a 14m forward. He had 22 MOTM's in 35 league games with 5 shots per game (whoscored).

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Fwd or mid?

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

          He will be a mid for sure if Auba and Rashford are classed as mids.

        3. Klaren
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          If they are consistent, he should be a mid, but they might classify him as a forward to balance things out a bit.

        4. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Any position, any price, he's in my team. (but probably should be a midfielder on current rules).

      6. Amey
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Okay. I'm thinking about splitting the Shaw budget in 2 *4.5m defenders now.

        Thinking about KWP & Taylor.

        Anyone Better ?? Don't want Justin because he's a transfer down the line & Leicester are in trouble defensively anyways.

          Vinagre and Saliba other options down there. Just need to work out if they will play 🙂

            😆
            That's the main worry ... Ha ha

            Vinagre I'm pretty sure won't be first choice. Saliba is intriguing option. No idea about arsenal.

            Maybe someone like leaf/ziro/Greak freak can help in that regards .. haha

              I saw some of arsenal friendly yesterday as it was streaming on youtube and i was really bored. Saliba started with Holding and Tierney in a back 3, but they had a completely different back 3 in second half i think, if he starts Com shield I will probs go for him otherwise I don't know if he will be first choice

          Leeds won't be bad after @liv, Ayling. Clarets have so-so home fixtures to 16 (WC), maybe worth looking at 2nd half.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

          KWP rotating with either Lampty or Targett look good for the first six.

            I assume Nyland and Steer are the two 4.0s.

          Mané @ 11.9% TSB. Now you have got my attention! Mané haul vs Leeds isn’t too much to ask for

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            11 months, 4 days ago

            0 interest in Mane.

            Agree. Great differential.

          3. Klaren
            • 3 Years
            11 months, 4 days ago

            Why do you care about ownership at such an early stage in the season? Just get the players you think that’ll score the highest points, no meaning of chasing differentials at this point.

            I’m not saying you shouldn’t get Mane by the way but just that ownership shouldn’t be a factor in your decision.

            1. Party time
                11 months, 4 days ago

                Mané has been in my team even before I checked the ownership status. The 11.9% just made me slap the armband on him... Ownership isn’t really a factor tbh but yeah it could still be, ya know

                  Bench is total crap

                    Greenwood doesnt play in GW1 so your total crap bench is going to have to flex!

                    Downgrade a forward or Doherty to Vinagre

                    Well you’ll need at leat 2 subs to cover Taylor and Greenwood blanks

                    Don't like your bench at all.

                    How crap can your bench really be? You should have funds left over for at least one presentable option.

                    Either brace yourself for a potentially low scoring GW1 or downgrade one of Doherty or Davies to a 4.5 defender and see if that raises enough funds to bring in a half-decent midfielder to cover Greenwood in GW1.

                  Hi guys, is Dier nailed?

                    Yes IMO some risk from Toby and Sanchez but he was excellent post lockdown so I cant see a genuine risk here

                    I'd downgrade Kieta and upgrade a defender

                    Not sold on Keita with Wij and Hendo pretty much fit but he is a great price. I'd sooner go double liverpool defence though

                    Plan to get united cover?

                  Which would you rather start the season with?

                  A. Dier
                  B. Richie +0.5m

                  The extra 0.5 gained would be due to 4.0 bench fodder in defence vs 4.5 bench fodder in midfield

                      Interesting team. Downgrade Dier upgrade W-P? Don't know what you'd get though.

                      Digne > Doherty
                      Tierney > Gomez

                      It's an interesting draft. I don't hate it actually.

                        I think Everton have nice fixtures after Spurs.

                        1. JustSomeGuy

                          Yes, I've thought of bringing Digne in a few times, but the lack of cs worry me.

                          11 months, 4 days ago

                          Wolves have even better fixtures, better defensive stats and Doherty put up better offensive numbers.

                          He's just straight up better...

                      I'd go Armstrong over JWP. He plays further forward and is cheaper. Plus JWP seems to have lost penalties to Danny Ings.

                    A) Ings & Maddison
                    Or
                    B) Vardy & Armstrong

                      Extra big hitter in the back line would be nice.

                    Right - attempt 2. Shaping up alright? Would prefer Rash over Greenwood but funds won't allow. Maybe Vardy > Ings might make it possible, but think Vardy is being massively overlooked.

                    McArthy - Nyland
                    TAA - James - Justin - Saliba/Vin - 4
                    Salah - Auba - Greenwood - Armstrong - Soucek
                    Werner - Vardy - 4.5

                        Ben Davies an option @ 5? Don't see Sessegnon starting at left back.

                          Yeah unless they sign a new LB he should be first choice over sessegnon imo. I'm on Dier atm but could end up with Davies. 5m a good price for their assets.

                          More than an option. He's a great pick.

                            He isn't as attacking as in the gone years though, is he?

                              He played as a defensive full back to allow Aurier to play as a full WB. Hes shown he can getting attacking returns in the past though so it will be interesting if Aurier goes and a right back steps in who can defend

                          I think Spurs will only keep one clean sheet in the first 4 games.

                            Nah, mourinho let's one fullback attack last season it was aurier and I see no reason why it won't be again unless he's sold, even then the incoming RB is probably the attacker not Davies. Dier a better option

                              Yeah Davies will basically be playing LCB. Hoping Foyth becomes nailed at 4.5m then I’ll be all over him

                            Spurs fan here. Can confirm that Davies was played as a third centre back more often than not as Mourinho only let Aurier join the attack.

                          First RMT of the season.. I've done a bit of tinkering but feel settled. It is fairly template team and a bit flexible.

                          0.5 ITB for Son -> Rashford

                            Comes down to how many transfers you want to spend and who to take out to get City and United players but a decent team

                          Everton have a terrible defence, people are making a big mistake avoiding Kane in GW1. It won't be easy to make room for him later, especially when everyone has planned future transfers.

                            Cant have them all unfortunately! If its Werner and 1m I'd still rather have Werner. Agree ynough Kane could be great but equally might bit get many monster hauls in that team

                            Happier with Son

                            Maybe they can use that money to bid for Messi now

                            Should add that Martial is on the bench
