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.

    Bit too safe/boring? Would rather wait on some of the new guys to see who rises to the top

    Mccarthy
    TAA dier saiss
    Auba mane pépé alli soucek
    Ings Adams
    4.0 lascelles Ferguson 4.5

      I'd love Alli to be pulisic if he were to play

    2. Brosstan

      Safe/Boring [ ]
      Pepe [ ]

      Pick one 😀

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Haha, yeah he is my one punt. But no one else I really like in that price bracket, so might as well!

    3. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      First time I’ve seen Pepe. He going to start?

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I think he will. But don't take my word for it!

  2. The Royal Robin
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Reece James, has all the potential to be incredible value but far from nailed...

    Frustrating to say the least. One to keep an eye on, or one to 'punt' on?

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'd say on the watch list, but I like to play it safe

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Azpi the best CHE def to have.

    3. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Chilwell around wk3
      Tough to fit all these transfers in though

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        +1. Chilwell is safest choice.

  3. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Southampton were blistering on attack in preseason

    Adams and Ings double up here we go!

    1. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Ha me too ! Ings will probably become martial gw2 though

    2. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I have it too

  4. AdamJ91
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Thoughts on this?

    McCarthy, Button
    TAA, Tierney, Davies, Bernardo, Ferguson
    Salah, Auba, Havertz, Rodriguez, Soucek
    Werner, C.Robinson, Adams

    Hoping that C.Robinson is just a place holder for Watkins, otherwise will need to have a rethink.

    1. Silent Friend
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      what a lovely placeholder...

  5. n-doggg
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    I’m keeping 1.5 itb for Son to Bruno... but would you spend it on upgrading elsewhere or sensible to keep, which means I can hold on to Salah and auba a bit longer...

    Ryan
    TAA, Dier, kwp, Taylor, Mitchel
    Salah, auba, son, ASM, soucek
    Werner, dcl, davis

    A. Save 1.5 to upgrade son to Bruno
    B. Davis to mitro/Adams
    C. Dier to vvd
    D. Dcl to Ings

    1. TB303
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      V.similar to mine below.
      Is Soucek nailed? I heard not 100%

      1. n-doggg
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Thought he was nailed. Doubts over coronavirus quarantine though

    2. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B.

      Son can easily match Bruno in gw2 and you'll probably cap Auba against west ham.

      Wouldnt have 1.5 itb

  6. TB303
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Please can I have your thoughts?
    2m itb Son -> Bruno upgrade possible

    Button - Ramsdale
    Taylor - Mitchell - Alexander-Arnold - Egan - Dier
    Aubameyang - Salah - Saint-Maximin - Son - Bissouma
    Davis - Werner - Mitrović

    1. n-doggg
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Haha, see above

  7. Whazza
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Any thoughts on Diogo Jota's minutes? Would be a steal as a 6.5M mid if nailed on I feel..

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Podence at 5.5 would be even better

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Indeed. He only played 200 mins though, Jota played quite a lot actually (2200)

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Bowen to jota/podence in gw3/4 here

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Interesting

  8. Apwilkin
    1 month, 11 days ago

    After spending entirely too much time tweaking and adjusting... Here we are with 1.0M ITB
    McCarthy(Nyland)
    TAA-Davies-Egan-KWP (Mitchell)
    Auba-Salah-ASM-Alli (Bissouma)
    Ings-Werner (Davis)

    Not loving my bench options, but hopefully after the first couple weeks a salah or Auba downgrade can help me balance out some alternatives. Ings will most likely be Martial for GW2.

    Good luck all!

  9. FredrikH
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Doherty + Davis or 4.0M def beside Mitchell + Wilson?

    1. Apwilkin
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Doh and Davies

      1. Apwilkin
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Misread that... I would still be inclined to start with Doherty over Wilson. Wilson will have been with the team for 72 hours for only a few days for gw1

        1. FredrikH
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Only problem is that it forces me to play four at the back with current setup. Not very tempting since other defenders can score points too while Davis is kind of there to take up a bench spot.

  10. Jullepuu
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 11 days ago

    5.0 def is better than a 5.5 mid am I right?

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Not necessary. I remember paying 5.5 for Mahrez

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        True but it's nearly impossible to know the right one from the start. Egan/Davies/Coady are much safer options in general

      2. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Me too, rotating him with Sinclair for the odd pen goal 😀

    2. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I would say so (depending who we're actually talking about mind).

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Well I'm talking in general but in my case it would be Davies vs Armstrong and then Bissouma vs Buur/Mutchell for the fodders

  11. TB303
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Buuuur as a wing-back looks a decent option. 100% nailed? Not so sure
    WDYT?

  12. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    A) Tierney, Son, DCL

    B) Dier/Davies, Alli, Ings

    1. AgentRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A

    2. BoomXhakaLaca1

      A

    4. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B

    5. Treadstone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B

  13. Strchld
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Cant decide should I pick Havertz over Alli.
    Its littlebit risky I know, nyt could also save a FT when planned to do Alli > Havertz GW3-4.

    A) Get Havertz now
    B) Alli and later Havertz

    1. Apwilkin
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Same dilemma. Right now Ive got Werner and planning to transfer alli for havertz gw3

      1. Strchld
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I also have already Werner.
        Definitely would double up but that GW2 against Liverpool turn me off little bit.

        1. zotter
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          This

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B

    3. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B is more sensible, Havertz has played 0 mins for Chelsea so might not start straight away?

      1. Strchld
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I think he will start, but true that he havent played at all yet.

      His wife, maybe. Not sure, though.

    Tierney best option for 5.5-5.0?

    Just a placeholder for Chillwell until gw3

    1. AgentRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'm really keen on him, keep looking for ways I can find the extra 0.5 to upgrade Davies as I'm not convinced by Spurs on CS potential

    2. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Good pick. Would think he no longer fills in as LCB

    Anyone else noticed all games live now?! Lovely

    1. Pukki Party

      I prefer the wait and excitement for a weekend full of games tbh.

      1. Pukki Party

        Or hold on still being played on weekends but every game televised?

    There was a post earlier mentioning Puli was back in training. Anyone have confirmation of this?

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      He's fit, not sure if match fit though

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      likely to feature v brighton

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Tricky

        Imagine Havertz is in much the same boat as "likely to feature". GW2 is hardly a great fixture. Just dunno whether to wait or not and which way to jump when if I do jump

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Yep but hasn't trained before this week. I'm probably still going with him.

  19. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Thoughts?

    McCarthy
    TAA // Robbo // Justin // Mitchell*
    Aubameyang // Havertz // Alli
    Werner // Ings // Jiminez

    Bench: Steer // Soucek* // Johnson // Bissouma

    Soucek for Mitchell if he is eligible to play.

    Or can do soucek to 4.5 & use the 0.5 for Ings/Jimi to Martial.

    Thoughts on Ollie Watkins ?

    1. amit1964
      • 4 Years

      price?

    2. OLDHERMAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Like him a lot, even though he's totally unproved at new level. Only concern, the way his goals galore arrived last term: a very high percentage of which deriving from shoots in the last 10 yards, between the penalty spot and the goal line. I feel it won't be that easy to shoot in Premier League from such a close range.
      Anyhow, my personal eye test tells me he's probably pure Premier League stuff, and he'll be in my fantasyleague.com team.

      1. the vanisher
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Thanks. At which price would you consider him as value for money in terms of fpl?

        1. OLDHERMAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I'm definitely not an expert of this game, better wait others say their word, mate.

    3. Treadstone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      5.5 hopefully like Bamford.

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        He's miles better

      Not Ayew

      He spent most of preseason fairly wide and had limited time up top. Suspect Roy has a narrow formation in mind where he and Schlupp are wide mids with Zaha more central.

      Bats signing doubles down on avoiding him. Bats could be a great 6.0 come GW5

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        For a 1 week ounk would u rather have zaha then? Over ayew

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Defo Zaha over Ayew - not especially keen on either though Zaha does sometimes creep into my fiddling when I try and sort out my final few slots.

  23. JakeTheRed

    RMT.

    McCarthy - (Nyland)
    TAA - Davies - Mitchell - (Taylor) - (Buur)
    Auba - Salah - Son - Barnes - ASM
    Werner - Mitrovic - (Brewster)

    Planning on getting in KDB & Fernandes for Auba & Son by GW3. (I have 1m itb)

  24. THE WERNER DELUSION
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Willian or Pepe are also kinda tempting, although maverick - those two fixtures are pretty much perfect

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Id go James(Eve), especially if you have Auba.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years

      great punts. pepe with loads to prove

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years

      Auba + Nketiah here

  25. Giggs Boson

    Koch only lasted 4 minutes?

    Was there any point in him even going...

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      They usually do last only that much

  26. FPL failure
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Is it worth downgrading Egan or Davies to a 4.5 (probably Taylor) to keep 0.5 ITB for Ings -> Martial?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Yes not a bad strategy

  28. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Which GK to choose:

    A) Leno (ful)
    B) Ramsdale (WOL) - have Saiss and Boly so will be hoping for a 0-0 if so

    1. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B.
      Not sure if Leno or Martinez gets the nod

    2. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Hear me out..

      Is Pickford 5.0? I know he is a poor keeper but he’s Everton’s number 1 and I see clean sheets in the opening fixtures.

      Other two I don’t like..

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        It’s probably only a one week pick with a GW2 WC

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B

  29. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Advice/Thoughts?

    McCarthy
    TAA // Robbo // Justin // Mitchell*
    Aubameyang // Havertz // Alli
    Werner // Ings // Jiminez

    Bench: Steer // Soucek* // Johnson // Bissouma

    Soucek for Mitchell if he is eligible.

    Alternatively, soucek to 4.5 which allows Ings/Jimi to martial in GW2
