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.

      Cancel out the noise and go back to your old team. Ask yourself the basics and take it from there.

          Yeah, Ive had a few of those. Then one day i was staring at a draft with Lindelof in it & had to take a few days off

            That’s when you know it’s time to step away from the transfer button alright

        Now it's time to relax and wait till the deadline. Maybe 1 or 2 changes, but I like my team

        McCarthy | Nyland
        TAA | Doherty | Digne | Egan | Lascelles
        Aubameyang | Son | Havertz | Saka | Romeu
        Werner | Ings | Brewster

        0.5 itb so I won't be priced out after 1 GW. Plan is to bring Rashford or Greenwood in. And GW 3 KDB in for Auba.

        1. doher.ty
            2 months, 26 days ago

            It's a flexible team thats for sure. I've gone little on the bench this year (even though it's probably the wrong year to do that).

            1. Godfrey
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 26 days ago

              I was thinking of Romeu > Soucek but West Ham fixtures are so difficult

              1. doher.ty
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  I would say bank the 0.5 you have 5 playing defenders, no reason to have anything more than a 4.5 mid to come off the bench. Price rises will be crazy the next couple of weeks with Man City and Man Utd assets coming in. You'll be thankful having some $ itb.

            Opinions are more than welcome.

            Ryan
            TAA Egan KWP
            Salah Auba Havertz/Pulisic ASM
            Werner DCL Mitrovic

            Walton; Davies/Dier, Reed, C. Taylor

            1. My heart goes Salalalalah
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              can't decide between McCarthy and Justin/Vinagre or Ryan and KWP. Looks solid

            2. polis
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 26 days ago

              Very solid.

              I'm not sold on Mitro generally. Will wait for them 'he's the talisman', 'on pens', 'everything goes through him' points but can see Fulham really struggling.
              .

              1. doher.ty
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  Fulham really struggled last time they were up and he scored 11 goals and 130 odd points. Likely repeat that.

                  1. polis
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Fair point.

                    I think Adams could score more or find the extra for Wilson/DCL who I can see scoring considerably more.

                    1. doher.ty
                        2 months, 26 days ago

                        I'm not a fan of Adams, I just haven't seen anything from him that really sticks out (I owned Ings almost all of last season so watched them a fair amount). If you can find the 0.5 than yes, DCL and Wilson could score more. I have max 6.0 for that spot so just hoping for more of the same from Mitro.

                  2. My heart goes Salalalalah
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Might start with a few points like before. Not a season keeper anyway

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

                  I like! Not keen on Ryan->Ramsdale with Egan->4.5 with better defensive prospects than BHA?
                  Also Son could be a good placeholder for Havertz/Puli (will both even start) if you find 0.5 (perhaps get a 4.0 def for third sub)

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

                A. Ings+Davies
                B. Antonio+Doherty

                B leaves 1M ITB for Salah+Antonio >> Bruno+Martial for an early hit.

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Can someone tell me that Leno starts against Fulham and Martinez will be on his merry way up to the midlands?

                1. Ask Yourself
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 26 days ago

                  That is the exact scenario I am expecting

                  1. Ask Yourself
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Latest is Martínez rejected a contract so I do expect he’s off. Will be a very good 4.5m at Villa

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

                      Hopefully some progress by the weekend and Arteta mentions he’s nearly off. Need a second GK for my BB and don’t really want to have to go with Ramsdale and hope for a 0-0 vs Wolves

              4. Worsle90
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Need one bit of advice before I lock team in:

                McCarthy (Nyland)
                TAA, Doherty, Justin (Mitchell, Buur)
                Mane, Auba, Son, Barnes, ASM
                Werner, Mitro (Brewster)

                Should I swap Buur and Barnes for Egan and Saka +0.5itb?

                1. doher.ty
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    I would

                  • polis
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    I think Justin and Barnes are transfers waiting to happen.

                    Egan could be a season keeper.

                  Romeu anymore nailed than Stephens / Bissouma?

                    Definitely nailed. Definitely getting 0-3 points each week with the exception of the weeks he gets sent off.

                      I think Bissouma plays a bit further up the pitch compared to the others. Could be wrong though.

                    Would really appreciate any help with this one!
                    Which would you rather have from GW2?

                    A: Bruno Doherty Mitro
                    B: Martial Son Davies

                    A - Son placehoder for Bruno
                    B - Ings placeholder for Martial

                      • 11 Years
                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      Son is a good pick with 7 plum fixtures in the first 8.
                      He isnt a placeholder for anyone in my view.

                        I agree but I have no idea how to navigate getting Utd cover in GW2. option B allows me to keep Son, here are the 2 options in full:

                        A:
                        Mccarthy Nyland
                        TAA Doherty Justin Taylor Mitchell
                        Salah Auba Bruno ASM Soucek
                        Werner Mitro Davis

                        GW2: Son > Bruno

                        B:
                        Mccarthy Nyland
                        TAA Davies Justin Taylor Mitchell
                        Salah Auba Son ASM Bissouma
                        Werner Martial Davis

                        GW2: Ings > Martial

                    I'm not gonna lie I thought villa were gonna get relegated last season until somehow the beat Arsenal 1 nil...

                    The signing of Ollie Watkins today has restored my faith in the Villa

                      28m for a championship striker with no PL experience though lol. I thought corona was meant to make the league reassess the wild transfer prices that had been flying around for years. Apparently not.

                        Looked him up, he's done alright but we need the help now, not in a year or two. I think I would have preferred a more proven EPL goal scorer like Wilson (for cheaper as well). That being said, it's exciting that they are investing in youth. They seem confident they can stay up again.

                          If Villa get josh King aswell then that would be a very, very nice team

                              If King can regain even half his form from 2/3 years ago I'd be a happy man.

                        Is there a 4.5 defender that rotates semi well with Soucek at West Ham? I know they re different positions.

                          Do you want to rotate Soucek? Have you seen a. fixtures weeks 2-7 b. their pre-season form?

                        Whose cleansheet potential is higher among these two:

                          The lack of Martial in most RMTs is quite surprising.

                          Expect him to hit 20 odd goals this season if he stays fit.

                              Doesn't have a GW1 fixture and many have Ings and Jimmy as GW1 place holders.

                                  The 1m over Rashford is quite difficult to fully justify and would like to see how Donny plays/affects Fernandes.

                                  Great having loads of options this year.

                                Rashford might get the same from midfield

                                        I think there are a few transfers waiting to happen in that backline but at the end of the day, it likely allows you to have a great front 7!

                                          I have Auba/Mane/Salah Midfiedl for GW1 and Werner upfront with Mitro.

                                          When i downgrade Auba and Mane i will re-evaluate where i need to spend the money.

                                    Should i double up with neco and trent? (Don't care about wasting liverpool spot because I'll only be getting one of salah or mane and can't afford robertson). The only reason i ask is should i go Neco or Mitchell?

                                    Pick one:
                                    A. Dier + 2.0m
                                    B. VVD + 0.5m
                                    C. Vinagre + 2.5m

                                    PS. Don't have a Pool defender in my team atm. Don't know if I need one.

                                        Or Saiss instead of Dier if u want Wolves. Don't know if Vinagre is a starter anymore

                                          Vinagre is a young talent and has done well when been on the pitch. Any Wolves fans around who know better?

                                        I started off last season with TAA and VVD. Kept them for the whole season, but feel it'll be different this year.

                                      Yeah, I'll have Rodriguez. Those fixtures, his incredible stats despite limited minutes, Ancelotti effect and his ability to build great offensive teams means he's in for me. He's a punt, I get why players want to wait and see but the package is too appealing for me!

                                        Tell me more about the Ancelotti effect?

                                          Has built brilliant goalscoring teams - Chelsea 2009/10, Real Madrid 2013/14. James had his best season under him, albeit 6 years ago but they clearly have a high regard for each other and I believe that'll bring the best out of both of them. Furthermore, his performances for Columbia show he can do it even playing with inferior teammates.

                                          1. doher.ty

                                              I want to see Ancelotti have a been more influence on the team now that he has some more skilled players. I want to see how they set up and if he can find the form of a few years ago. If so he's a nice price but I'm a wait and see on him.

                                          He might be the bargain of the season at 7.5m.

                                            He's such an incredible player, I was shocked seeing how phenomenal his stats were despite limited minutes. The fact that he's excellent for Columbia too is what really sells me on him.

                                        Only thoughts are bringing Vinagre down to a 4.0m and either keeping 0.5 itb, or updating Egan... Thanks all...

                                          Do not get two 4.0 defs. And would go Ferguson over Douglas as could actually be first choice when fit

                                        I know its not a common strategy on here but if you were wildcarding GW2, how does this team look:

                                        TAA Robbo KWP

                                          Pretty good. Personally, I don't like the 5.5m mid options. I think I may go No-Salah.

                                          Aub/Salah/Bruno is a lot of money tied up for my liking... personally I'd stick to 2 of the premiums and updgrade Dier & either Mitro or Bavis

                                        Villa fans, Nyland or Steer? Reas somewhere earlier that Steer is in pedicted lineups...

                                          Looks like they’ll have Martínez before SHU

                                            Straight in everyone's team? Villa were defensively top 4 - looking at statistics - after the restart. If they keep that up, even with inevitable regression Martinez could be solid captaincy.

                                          Talk of Martinez?

                                        Anyone else having their head turned on captaincy, and leaning towards Salah(c) over Auba(c)?

                                          Just do whatever the poll says GW1. There’s no point having an opinion on captaincy at this stage.

                                          Mine's always been on Salah, he had the highest ppg last season (out of all players with a fixture) and is at home against a promoted team.

                                        Is this too much Toon? Considering going Salah-less. 0.5ITB to get Martial GW2.

                                          am very tempted by Martial must say. 2 toon attackers feels overkill

                                        Hi all....a full 24hrs and no amends to this! I have 0.5mitb.

                                        Plan is salah to bruno gw2. Or salah and dcl to bruno and martial - 4

                                        Will go for ferguson as he is better long term option than mitchell.

                                        Please do tear it to pieces, really struggling to settle on an XI:

                                        Johnstone - Button
                                        TAA - Davies - Lascelles - KWP - C. Taylor
                                        Auba - Bruno - Son - Rodriguez - Pereira
                                        Werner - Mitro - Brewster

                                          I prefer the value in a £6m striker than pereira but that’s me

                                          I like it a lot tbh. Prefer the no Salah team
