Scout Notes

Which FPL assets were involved in latest round of Nations League action?

All Fantasy Premier League assets have completed their last round of international duties ahead of the Gameweek 1 deadline.

With just a few days gap between Nations League action and Premier League responsibilities, there have been a few busy schedules for some players.

We have detailed which players were the most involved for their countries over the last week, to help you prepare for the new season.

ARSENAL

  • Bernd Leno (Germany) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Granit Xhaka (Switzerland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Sead Kolasinac (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – 84 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Kieran Tierney (Scotland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Ainsley Maitland-Niles (England) – Unused substitute | 3 minutes

Kieran Tierney (£5.5m) played on the left-hand side of a back-three for Scotland, where he has been deployed for Arsenal recently. After playing 90 minutes in his country’s first Nations League match, the £5.5m man was given the night off for a win over the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka (£5.5m) got an assist for Switzerland as they were beaten 2-1 by Ukraine and Bernd Leno (£5.0m) got 90 minutes in one of Germany’s outings.

ASTON VILLA

  • Conor Hourihane (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • John McGinn (Scotland) – 79 minutes | 71 minutes
  • Tyrone Mings (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Jack Grealish (England) – Unused substitute | 14 minutes

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

  • Aaron Connolly (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 77 minutes
  • Joël Veltman (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Leandro Trossard (Belgium) – 10 minutes | Unused substitute

BURNLEY

  • Robbie Brady (Republic of Ireland) – 20 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Nick Pope (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute

Robbie Brady (£5.0m) was the only Burnley player of real note during the international break, as his corner was the one converted by Shane Duffy against Bulgaria.

CHELSEA

  • Antonio Rüdiger (Germany) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Timo Werner (Germany) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Kai Havertz (Germany) – Unused substitute | Not involved
  • Jorginho (Italy) – Unused substitute
  • Mason Mount (England) – Unused substitute | 30 minutes
  • Andreas Christensen (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Mateo Kovačić (Croatia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • N’Golo Kanté (France) – 90 minutes | 63 minutes
  • Olivier Giroud (France) – 90 minutes | 27 minutes
  • Michy Batshuayi (Belgium) – Not involved | 90 minutes
  • Tammy Abraham (England) – Not involved | Unused substitute

While Timo Werner (£9.5m) played 180 minutes across Germany’s two Nations League matches, he did add to his appeal by scoring in the first.

Meanwhile, owners of Kai Havertz (£8.5m) will be pleased at his distinct lack of involvement for Germany, an unused substitute in the first game and not involved at all in the second.

Elsewhere, Olivier Giroud (£7.0m) converted a penalty for France, while Mateo Kovačić (£5.5m) provided an assist for Croatia in the same match.

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Wayne Hennessey (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • James McCarthy (Republic of Ireland) – 70 minutes | Unused substitute

There was some potentially concerning news for Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) owners in the Republic of Ireland’s international break.

James McCarthy (£4.5m) got back from injury in their first Nations League match, which should bolster the central midfield options at Crystal Palace for Gameweek 1.

It could mean that Jairo Riedewald (£4.5m), who has played there for most of pre-season, could return to left-back duties and force Mitchell out of his position for the clash with Southampton.

EVERTON

  • Seamus Coleman (Republic of Ireland) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Moise Kean (Italy) – 4 minutes | Not involved
  • Muhamed Bešić (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – 90 minutes | 60 minutes
  • Jordan Pickford (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Michael Keane (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Jonas Lössl (Denmark) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Lucas Digne (France) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson (Iceland) – Not involved | 90 minutes

FULHAM

  • Aleksandar Mitrović (Serbia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Stefan Johansen (Norway) – 90 minutes | 71 minutes
  • Marek Rodák (Slovakia) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes

Aleksandar Mitrović‘s (£6.0m) preparation for the start of the Premier League season was satisfactory as he found the net in Serbia’s 3-1 defeat to Russia.

Elsewhere, Stefan Johansen (£5.0m) provided an assist as Norway ran out 5-1 winners against Northern Ireland.

LEEDS UNITED

  • Robin Koch (Germany) – 4 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Rodrigo Moreno (Spain) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Mateusz Klich (Poland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Stuart Dallas (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Kalvin Phillips (England) – Unused substitute | 76 minutes
  • Ezgjan Alioski (North Macedonia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes

Rodrigo Moreno (£6.0m) missed two big chances to score against Germany but did manage to get the assist for Gayà’s last-minute equaliser.

Just as Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) did for Northern Ireland, Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) played 90 minutes in both matches of the international break at left-back. He even went one better, netting a penalty in North Macedonia’s 2-1 win over Armenia.

LIVERPOOL

  • Caoimhin Kelleher (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Harry Wilson (Wales) – 45 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Neco Williams (Wales) – 30 minutes | 25 minutes
  • Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Georginio Wijnaldum (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Andrew Robertson (Scotland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Liam Cooper (Scotland) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Joe Gomez (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (England) – 17 minutes | 87 minutes

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) was eased back from injury during England’s two Nations League matches, with 17 and 87-minute outings against Iceland and Denmark respectively.

Neco Williams (£4.0m) reminded Jurgen Klopp he means business this season, emerging from the substitutes’ bench to score an all-important last-minute winner for Wales against Bulgaria.

LEICESTER CITY

  • Çaglar Söyüncü (Turkey) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Danny Ward (Wales) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Timothy Castagne (Belgium) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Youri Tielemans (Belgium) – 88 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Dennis Praet (Belgium) – 33 minutes | Unused substitute

MANCHESTER CITY

  • Ilkay Gündogan (Germany) – 74 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ferran Torres (Spain) – 90 minutes | 16 minutes
  • Rodri (Spain) – Unused substitute | 69 minutes
  • Oleksandr Zinchenko (Ukraine) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Nathan Aké (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 81 minutes
  • Kyle Walker (England) – 70 minutes | Suspended
  • Phil Foden (England) – 68 minutes | Not involved
  • Raheem Sterling (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • João Cancelo (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Bernardo Silva (Portugal) – 78 minutes | 22 minutes
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium) – Not involved | 80 minutes

Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) was the only Englishman on the score sheet over the international break. He netted a late penalty against Iceland, which he won himself by forcing a handball from Sverrir Ingason.

Manchester City’s new signing Ferran Torres (£7.0m) impressed in both outings for Spain, scoring in the second one, a 4-0 win over Ukraine.

João Cancelo (£5.5m) scored for Portugal against Croatia and Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) provided an assist. In the second of the two matches, a 2-0 win over Sweden, the midfielder was forced off with a muscle-related issue. While that could open up some spots in the Manchester City team, they don’t play their first game of the season until Gameweek 2.

Nathan Aké (£5.5m) also had his international game-time curtailed by a knock sustained 81 minutes into the Netherlands 1-0 defeat to Italy, perhaps of some slight concern, considering Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) is isolating from a positive coronavirus test.

Elsewhere, Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m), who plays in midfield for his country, netted the winner as Ukraine beat Switzerland 2-1. Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m) was also on the scoresheet against the Swiss, as he struck the only goal of Germany’s 1-1 draw.

MANCHESTER UNITED

  • David de Gea (Spain) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Daniel James (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Donny van de Beek (Netherlands) – 16 minutes | 57 minutes
  • Scott McTominay (Scotland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes 
  • Mason Greenwood (England) – 12 minutes | Not involved
  • Dean Henderson (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Bruno Fernandes (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Victor Lindelöf (Sweden) – 90 minutes | Not involved
  • Anthony Martial (France) – 13 minutes | 90 minutes

Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) played 90 minutes in both of Portugal’s Nations League games, and assisted in the win over Croatia.

Daniel James (£6.5m) was a provider in Wales 1-0 win against Finland and Anthony Martial (£9.0m) added an assist in France’s 4-2 defeat of Croatia.

Elsewhere, Scott McTominay (£5.0m) spent both of Scotland’s outings in the back-three alongside Tierney.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

  • Jeff Hendrick (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jamal Lewis (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | Not involved

SHEFFIELD UNITED

  • John Egan (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Enda Stevens (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ethan Ampadu (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Sander Berge (Norway) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Oliver Burke (Scotland) – 16 minutes | Unused substitute
  • John Fleck (Scotland) – Unused substitute | 71 minutes
  • David McGoldrick (Republic of Ireland) – Not involved | 24 minutes

With Billy Sharp (£6.0m) impressing in his absence during pre-season, David McGoldrick (£5.5m) finally made his first appearance of the summer, coming in the final 24 minutes of the Republic of Ireland’s 1-0 home defeat to Finland.

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Shane Long (Republic of Ireland) – 13 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jan Bednarek (Poland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Stuart Armstrong (Scotland) – 11 minutes | 80 minutes
  • James Ward-Prowse (England) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Danny Ings (England) – 22 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jannik Vestergaard (Denmark) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute

Danny Ings (£8.5m) should be fresh for the start of the new season given his limited involvement with England.

The Southampton man was handed 22 minutes against Iceland before warming the bench all evening as the Three Lions drew 0-0 with Denmark.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

  • Matt Doherty (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ben Davies (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Steven Bergwijn (Netherlands) – 74 minutes | 33 minutes
  • Eric Dier (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Harry Kane (England) – 78 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 17 minutes
  • Toby Alderweireld (Belgium) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Hugo Lloris (France) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Moussa Sissoko (France) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes 

Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m) was the only Spurs player to find the net in the most recent round of Nations League matches, scoring for the Netherlands in a 1-0 win over Poland.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION

  • Callum Robinson – 16 minutes | 31 minutes
  • Hal Robson-Kanu – Unused substitute | 29 minutes
  • Kamil Grosicki (Poland) – 19 minutes | 80 minutes

WEST HAM UNITED

  • Andriy Yarmolenko (Ukraine) – 90 minutes | 79 minutes
  • Darren Randolph (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Lukasz Fabianski (Poland) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Declan Rice (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes

Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) was not involved for the Czech Republic at all over the international break while Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) scored in a 2-1 win over Switzerland for Ukraine.

WOLVES

  • Conor Coady (England) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Leander Dendoncker (Belgium) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • João Moutinho (Portugal) – 82 minutes | 73 minutes
  • Diogo Jota (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 9 minutes
  • Ruben Neves (Portugal) – 17 minutes
  • Rui Patrício (Portugal) – Not involved | Unused substitute

Most of Wolves’ squad were treated to a break from international duty over the last few days.

Diogo Jota (£6.5m) scored as Portugal ran out 4-1 winners over Croatia.

  2. BoomXhakaLaca1

    Reckon this is my strongest team do far. Opinions?

    McCarthy / Nyland

    TAA/ KWP / Egan / Johnson / Lewis

    Salah / Havertz / James Rod / Auba / Armstrong

    Werner/ Wilson / Davis

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Looks very good- do you have a path to City/ ManU ?

      1. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Basically going to have to see who out if Salah or Auba gets shifted off. Pep roulette isn't the most fun so KDB would be the only one I'm interested in right now and for united km only interested in Greenwood(for James or Havertz) or Bruno

    2. Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Willson into Mitro
      Havertz into Son (coz you have Werner)

      1. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Was definitely looking to get Son but I'm not a fan of Mitro to be honest

    3. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Good team, like it.

      1. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers mate

  3. Galza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 26 days ago

    I’m thinking about this 3-4-3 now...

    Johnstone (Button)
    TAA / Robbo / Dier (KWP / Mitchell)
    Auba / Alli / Ceballos / Pereira (Bruno)
    Wilson / Werner / Mitrovic

    1. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      The midfield isn't strong enough I'm afraid, Bruno on the bench is wasted money for GW1

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Maybe.
        I’m pretty set on having Bruno on my bench though.

        1. BoomXhakaLaca1
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Would you not rather have some big and keep the spare cash like say Havertz for example and then transfer Bruno back in straight away Saturday so you've a stronger mid?

          1. DantheManinaPan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I wouldn't.

            Because I imagine a lot of other transfers will be necessary and I don't think Son outscores Soucek by 4 points on average

            1. BoomXhakaLaca1
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Not sure where Son or soucek came from but fair enough

          2. Galza
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I’m looking at trying to save my FT.

    2. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Similar ideas to mine. I've got Bruno on the bench as well; that transfer will be useful elsewhere. I prefer Adams to Mitro and have ASM and Bissouma in midfield with Son over Alli, but I like it. You prefer Dier over Davies?

      1. Galza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I really like Dier.
        He should be good for a few attacking returns, when going up for corners.
        My only concern really, is his fitness.

        1. Better off with a pin and a…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Thanks. I think my view is coloured by the attacking Davies of a few years ago. Dier probably the more sensible choice.

    Great round up.

    1. Cpt Crunch Scott talent
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Yeah... if we ignore the missing ones

  5. Miguel Sanchez

    Chilling in Cornwall with a cider watching the sun go down over the sea. Happy to help you with any FPL questions you have.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Would you go

      Son, DCL or ASM, Kane

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Son and DCL - have heard Kane hasn’t looked that sharp recently and he usually takes a few games to get going.

    2. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I read Chilling as Chilwell 😀 thought you were spying on the guy

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Haha, too much FPL sometimes

    3. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Who'd be your preference to get out of Bruno(United pens galore) or KDB(on another level)?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Bruno and KDB I think will end up on similar points by the end (250 ish) so Bruno for the 1.0 saving

    4. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Heading down there myself in a couple of weeks for some Rattler

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Enjoyed a pint of that yesterday, lovely stuff. Have a good time.

    5. Jimjam
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Ryan or McCarthy? (have KWP)

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        McCarthy still - Saints defensive stats were much improved after the 9-0 debacle and lockdown and should improve further with Salisu signing

    6. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      A. Kane jwp
      B. Ings Alli

      Slightly leaning towards A.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I actually prefer B - Ings is a joy to own when fits (instant 9 points when he scores) and Alli is a good segway across to the Chelsea mids or Greenwood or James Rodriguez if it goes wrong

        1. Disturbed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Cheers bud

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        On B - but dunno

    7. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Best 1 week mid punt with flexibility of holding him long term in case he explodes or there are more pressing issues?

      Budget: 7.5m

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        If you can hold out til GW2 James Rodriguez has WBA at home. Can see that being a brace and the first major bandwagon of the season.

        For GW1 punts under 7.5 I myself have H.Barnes and Bowen

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I've looked at Barnes and feel he's not nailed

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            He isn’t but should start the season. Has played the most mins in preseason IIRC

    8. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      What formations are best in fpl this year in your opinion?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        3-5-2 with a decent ish 4th def to come in on occasion

        1. Jullepuu

            Yeah - not really a massive fan of the 3 man midfield teams when there are so many great options there this season

      Striker spots are currently what's melting my head. I want all of Werner, Martial, Jimenez, DCL and a Southampton striker for the coming weeks and can't choose....

      1. Dr. Rog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        yep, and when Batsu and/or Brewster become options its going to be really tough

        not to mention Wilson, Wood, Aguero, Vardy, Kane are all knocking about

      2. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        after this week in order:
        Werner
        Martial
        Ings
        Jiminez
        DCL

        1. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          thats the price order - this time next week they will be ordered by their round 1 score (except martial who will be top of the list)

    • Front 442
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      I’m not seeing many RMT’s with Kane involved. Great fixtures and 180 minutes under his belt with England I’m slightly surprised with his lack of involvement in people drafts. Thoughts please

      1. sully29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Too much value elsewhere up front.

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah, only 1.5 million between him and Son and he´s on pens and completely nailed.

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          1.5m is a lot. Will also not (c)

          1. Front 442
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I agree Werner is a fanciable pick I’m going with Havertz, who I think with hit the ground running as my Chelsea pick. If Kane and Tottenham don’t fire early doors he’s easily transferable to any inform striker.

          2. THE KING CANTONA
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 26 days ago

            2.5m for those who consider Alli.

      3. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Track record of starts doesn’t help. It takes around a month for him to be up and running properly

        1. Front 442
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Again I agree with that but with hardly any time off pre season and those fixtures I have a good feeling about him and I’ve got him paired up with Ings

        2. THE KING CANTONA
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Kane has problem only with August 🙂

      4. dekikide
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        I struggle with the same thing. I do have him in my draft. I dont have Salah. But I do have Kane + Son, and Gw2 i plan to go Son-> Bruno (I have 1.5 ITB)..
        I guess Son and Kane should outscore Salah in GW1..
        Other option is to go Salah + Martial and 0 ITB, and then go Salah -> KDB/Bruno

        I don't know.. Kane at 10.5 looks cheap to me.. But not many people seem to think like that..

        1. Front 442
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          It’s a no brainier for me and I’m sticking with it!
          I have a starting midfield 4 of Auba(c) Salah Havertz £5.5m?
          Ings Kane up top

    • TimoTime
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 26 days ago

      Do we expect James Rodriguez to start GW1?

    • Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      McCarthy/Nylan
      TAA, Dier, Egan /KWP, Mitcehll
      Auba, Salah, Son, Barnes, ASM
      Werner, Mitro/ Brewster

      I covered all team, think that team has balanse and have decent bench

      1. THE KING CANTONA
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Egan => James (+.5)
        Son => Alli (+1.0)
        Barnes => Bissouma, (+2.5)
        to upgrade, Brew => Ings/Jimmenez (+4.0)

        1. THE KING CANTONA
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Egan => Taylor/James (+.5)

          You have enough cover for GW1.

    • Holteenderinthesky
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 26 days ago

      With Fernandes missing gw1, Can he get a price rise before the gw2 deadline? I want to bring him in for gw3 but a price rise will screw me.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        just buy him first things saturday after the Ars game starts. Simple.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          This - he will be at least 10.6 by GW2 deadline

        2. Holteenderinthesky
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Problem is, I cant, I'm buying for gw3 not gw2. Son&Auba>Kdb&Fernandes

        Depends how FPL treat blank GW1 players. Would expect more transfers needed for them.

        which combo scores more for the first gameweek

        A) Salah + Antonio - 4points
        B) Ings + KWP

      5. Laporte In A Storm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 26 days ago

        Think I'm done here:

        McCarthy / Ryan
        TAA / VVD / Justin / Lascelles / Taylor
        Salah / Auba / Alli / ASM / Armstrong
        Werner / Antonio / Davis

        Opted for having a bit on the bench. Will rotate GKs and also go for the LEI/BUR rotation.

        1. THE KING CANTONA
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Fancy Antonio, Davies, Armstrong => Mitro, Adams, Bissouma ?

          • Antonio fixtures after GW1 are tough (Noble might take PENs). Mitro has easy fixtures and PEN taker.
          • Adams FWD Vs Armstrong MID
          • Davies not gonna return any points, Bissouma can be sure 2 points on bench.

        1. JURGENAUT

          Antonio

        2. JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Nketiah may not even start whereas Antonio is nailed

        3. The Royal Robin
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Nketiah isn't nailed, but if he plays I fancy him to score against Fulham and I'd avoid West Ham at all costs.

        4. DIMITRIS
          • 2 Years

        It'll be interesting to see what price new Villa signing, Ollie Watkins, comes in at. He did relly well for us in his time at Exeter, but don't know if he's excelled enough at Brentford to be Premier League material ... any Brentford fans on here care to give their opinion?
        Either way, good luck to the lad, he's also made us a packet of money!

        Is Luke Shaw certain to start over Williams if fit?

        Seems an obvious candidate but I never know with him.

        1. AgentRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Yes, he's definitely first choice over Williams when fully fit. May change if United sign another left back though.

          1. Vertigo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

              He's injured a lot so that's a worry with him rather than rotation

      12. Pukki Party

        Thoughts? Nketiah a two weeks punt as i don't have Auba, will become another 6.0 or Wilson/Antonio potentially, can also be benched as Greenwood on bench. Pulisic still a 50/50 will wait for presser.

        2 months, 26 days ago

        I'm still having Doherty in my gw1 team but if Aurier stays there's really no clear evidence that Doherty will be nailed from the start. It's all based on stuff like 'I don't think Mou likes him' (even though he was nailed post lockdown) and rumors of the club wanting to sell him (Milan being interested is not the same as TOT looking to sell, club hasnt said anything). Doherty also overrated on here as a player because of his FPL prowess, much like other attacking full backs like Alonso.

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Ha, see two below. I think it puts me off, don't want to have a 6M defender if he is a rotation risk

        2. Bleh
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah I’m getting rid I think, at least until we know for certain. 6.0 on a def is too much of a gamble at this stage.

        3. Ninjaa
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          I personally don't see him scoring as many points as last year. He'll have a lot more defensive responsibly under Mourinho, he had free reign to get forward for wolves. Not appealing at 6m imo

        4. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Agree, Aurier could very well start.

        5. Hiroku
            2 months, 26 days ago

            I think the only reason he was "nailed" is there was literally no other RB in the squad since KWP left. Gelson has been playing RB in pre-season which tells me Mourinho wants to use him as a backup in that position once Aurier leaves. I would be very surprised if Doherty didn't start GW1.

        6. Bleh
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Who is more nailed, Dier or Davies?

          1. THE KING CANTONA
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 26 days ago

            Pretty much the same.

        7. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Anyone else worried about Doherty as a pick if Aurier stays?
