How Spurs and Everton’s new signings fared in their FPL Gameweek 1 debuts

Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Everton

  • Goal: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m)
  • Assist: Lucas Digne (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: Digne x3, Calvert-Lewin x2, Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) x1

Tottenham Hotspur and Everton met on Sunday for the second time in two months.

Only one goal separated the two sides again but, following Spurs’ narrow victory in July, this time it was the Toffees who came away from north London with all three points.

While it may seem like an all-too-convenient narrative to say that Everton’s trio of new signings were the difference between the two matches, there was a lot of truth in it.

Allan (£5.5m) and Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.5m) added bite and energy to a previously uninspired central midfield, while James Rodriguez (£7.5m) oozed class and defied predictions – including our own – that he may take a little time to get up to speed after a lack of first-team football at Real Madrid.

Spurs’ two debutants didn’t quite have such an auspicious afternoon but Matt Doherty (£6.0m) did at least show encouraging glimpses of the goal threat that marked him out as a popular Fantasy Premier League option at Wolves.

RODRIGUEZ TO RICHARLISON

Carlo Ancelotti sent his troops out in a 4-3-3 for Sunday’s match, the formation his side ended pre-season in.

Richarlison (£8.0m) and Rodriguez were given the nod to flank Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m) in a three-man attack and while the Everton number nine grabbed the game’s only goal when nodding in a teasing Lucas Digne (£6.0m) free-kick, it was the two wingers who really caught the eye.

Rodriguez’s touch was excellent and his vision just as good, with the Colombian setting up five Everton chances – all for Richarlison.

He appears to be sharing set-piece duties with Digne, too, with Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.0m) benched.

If there were any quibbles about Rodriguez’s display from a Fantasy perspective, it’s that he was often much deeper than Richarlison on the opposite flank.

The Brazil international, indeed, registered over four times as many penalty box touches as his new teammate.

But Rodriguez still went close with a 25-yard effort that crept just wide and got into an excellent position just after half-time, only to shank Calvert-Lewin’s cut-back from 12 yards.

But for Richarlison’s profligate finishing, he would have had at least one assist to his name, too.

The former Watford man nodded a presentable chance wide from a pinpoint Rodriguez cross just after the interval, later curling two efforts narrowly off-target when being found by the Colombian.

Richarlison’s best chance came from an errant Ben Davies (£5.0m) pass but, after skinning Toby Alderweireld (£5.5m) and Hugo Lloris (£5.5m), the newly reclassified FPL forward could only blaze over from a tight angle – to the annoyance of Calvert-Lewin, who was unmarked and waiting for a tap-in.

An off-day for Richarlison in front of goal, then, but plenty of encouragement for the Gameweek 2 clash with West Brom, who allowed Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) plenty of chances from the Leicester left on Sunday despite operating with a five-man backline.

Doherty’s Debut

Doherty was one of the reasons that Richarlison had a lot of joy in north London.

The Brazilian had the beating of the Ireland international on a few occasions (his 51st-minute header and 71st-minute curler, for starters) and, in more than one instance, Doherty was half-way up the other end of the pitch when Richarlison received the ball.

That last point is not a criticism, however, as the Spurs right-back was encouraged to get forward in the lop-sided 4-2-3-1 that Jose Mourinho employs.

One of the questions from FPL managers over Doherty’s move to north London was whether he would continue to “underlap” into goal-scoring positions or whether he would be more of a cross-merchant like Serge Aurier (£5.5m).

Two darts into the Everton box just before half-time may have answered that, with one of his runs resulting in a glorious chance from six yards out that Jordan Pickford (£5.5m) blocked with his legs.

Doherty was clearly flagging by the end of his debut and it may be a few weeks before we see the best of him, with Mourinho saying:

The players who didn’t have pre-season, we don’t have now the possibility to give them a pre-season but we have a lot of matches now to play consecutively and we have to use these matches, not just to win them and the knockout ones are obviously decisive ones with everything decided in 120 minutes or even penalties, and try to use this to improve the form of some players because some of them were really in trouble.

You can look to Doherty, a player who is normally in incredible condition. He didn’t have pre-season. He went direct from holidays to national team matches. No pre-season at all. Direct and not one single training session, direct from holidays to the national team and he played two consecutive matches and today he was not Matt Doherty like he normally is.

SPURS ATTACK BLANKS

There was no joy for owners of Spurs’ attackers, either.

Harry Kane (£10.5m) followed up his sluggish displays for England with a tired-looking performance, although did tee up Doherty for the right-back’s chance with an excellent chip.

Dele Alli (£8.0m) lasted only 45 minutes of the game, meanwhile, with Mourinho citing tactical reasons for his half-time substitution:

Tactical, yeah. They were playing only with one pivot, Allan was in that position there. Gomes and Doucoure were pressing high, lots of space behind this pressure. I needed more dynamic there.

It was some distance from being a positive Spurs display but it wasn’t the worst we’ve ever seen from Mourinho’s side: as well as Doherty’s chance, Alli saw a shot tipped over by Pickford following a swift break, Son Heung-min (£9.0m) had a goalbound shot headed away and Kane was inches from connecting with Son’s teasing delivery.

All of that came in the first half, however, and the Lilywhites ran out of steam after the break, with Mourinho’s change at the interval not having any effect.

The Spurs boss said:

Look. Harry Kane trained with us once. Just once. One day. Moussa Sissoko just a couple. I’m not going player by player but for different reasons our players they didn’t have that proper pre-season.

We had cases of positive COVID-19. Of course we have the right to say which players they were, but we had players with positive COVID. We had other players in quarantine due to proximity with the positive players.

We had a player in quarantine because he was on holiday in a country that England demands quarantine.

We had a national team couple of weeks, many of the players went with their national teams so the pre-season was a difficult one for many of the players.

In the second half after their goal we were poor and in my opinion we were not physically strong, no intensity and the team lacks in this moment many players physical condition.

EVERTON SOLID

Allan’s love of a tackle was something we highlighted in a previous article and no FPL midfielder won more than the Brazilian in Gameweek 1.

He and Doucoure rightly earned a lot of the praise on Sunday but Michael Keane (£5.0m) continued his fine post-restart form at centre-half and, perhaps most crucially of all, Pickford was dependable between the posts.

The England goalkeeper was a bit of a weak link last season and no matter how good Everton’s defenders and covering midfielders are, they’ll need him to vastly improve on his 2019/20 form in order to rack up the clean sheets.

The back four may well be settled for some time, meanwhile, with Mason Holgate (£5.0m) potentially ruled out for up to three months:

    Any thoughts on Havertz?
    I watched the game, and I think I want to get rid of him, atleast until he settles, maybe I'll bring in Werner soon, because he looked very sharp.

    A) keep for now
    B) get rid, but only for a free
    C) get him out, asap, hit or not, doesnt matter.

    1. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Get rid

    2. AdamJ91
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Expected & still expect big things from him but honestly he looked uncomfortable outwide. Centrally he would be a real gem though given the runs Werner was making.

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      At 8.5 I’m tempted to get rid and free up some cash, who knows how long until he settles in

    4. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Loftus cheek had a shocker sadly, so wouldn’t be surprised to see havertz take over that no 10 role going forward, which should do make him a lot of more appealing.

    5. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Im going b or c

    6. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Pulisic and ziyech will make a huge difference. Im giving him more time, considering his next 2 after pool. Even then it will probably be a straight swap to pulisic for me if he still looks off the boil.

    7. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Getting rid. Can’t see him playing on Sunday, he will take a bit of time to get up to pace

    8. Little Red Lacazette

      Get Willian at 8.0 and spend the .5 elsewhere

      1. Invincibles
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Auba this week.

  3. AdamJ91
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    How's this looking atm?

    Johnstone
    TAA, Digne, Doherty, Tierney
    Auba, Salah, JWP
    Werner, DCL, Adams

    Steer, ASM, Bissouma, Ferguson

    I know it looks heavy in defence but I will be using my WC either GW3/4.

  4. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    With Werner flagged would you go ahead with planned Ings to Martial? Could hold back until press conference but likelihood of Lampard being definitive unlikely- Werner to Martial alternative move I guess

    1. JamTart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I think he'll be alright. Sounded like just a dead leg

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Oh what Werner is injured?

      1. The Wise Owl
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        He had a bit of an issue when he was brought down in the box, says he'll be OK for the Liverpool game

      Best Everton coverage?

      1. faux_C
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Richarlison vs DCL debate would be interesting.

      2. Ranger Mann
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 10 hours ago

        I'll stop you at 'coverage'!

        Go for the best attacking, most minutes, least rotation risk, through the middle, valuable asset = DCL

    3. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Too early to wildcard? GW1 broke the template considerably:
      - Liverpool defense suspect
      - Chelsea didn't look convincing
      - Pereira and WBA look a flop
      - Southampton defense poor
      - Everton look the real deal
      - Jump on City/Utd assets

      1. faux_C
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Careful, you're going to jerk your knee clean off your leg.

      2. MAXIMIN EFFORT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Plus Spurs looking woeful

    4. Gazpilicueta
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Which player are you most excited about so far? maybe they got a haul or maybe they didnt. watching them made you think "ive got to get him in"

      1. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 18 hours ago

        harvey barnes

    5. AdamJ91
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Which Man Utd players should we be looking at getting and when?

    6. @Bryan
      • 11 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I own Harry Kane and Son. When is it time to knee jerk? They have good fixtures and only played one game where they looked very poor as an outfit.

    7. Boleyn Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Which Man Utd players should we be targeting? Is this solely dependant on where you can fit them in as they each have their merits

    8. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      - Is Werner injured?
      - Greenwood going to start?

    9. Lalrota
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Is there a case for a WC in Gw3?

      You basically can get

      Sterling and KDB both
      Jimenez
      United attacker
      Chelsea mid preferably Pulisic if fit
      Along with Everton attack and defence

    10. Lalrota
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Is it fine taking hits just to safeguard team value and Avoid WC?

    11. Mr. Funny Name
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      A popular transfer this week seems to be Ings -> Martial, however given last nights performance and fixtures after city, is the clever play to hold Ings vs a shaky spurs defence, then transfer to Jiménez for His amazing 5 fixtures after that?

      1. Mr. Funny Name
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        A follow up question, are Manchester United assets necessary or can we manage without them for a week or two?

    12. seanmcging
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      What to do with the likes of Pulisic, Saka & Vinagre?

      1. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 18 hours ago

        keep pulisic
        sell saka
        vinagre 3rd sub ,going to lose value but thats no big deal

    13. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      This early in the season, are you planning on being patient or aggressive with your transfers (I know what your answer will be joe!). And does a poor gw1 change your thinking at all on that?

      Harvertz is a good example, I was planning to be patient this season so wanted to save a transfer and keep him long term but he looked so off the pace last night that I’m now getting rid and even considering a hit as well now!

      1. tisza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 18 hours ago

        can't see Lampard keeping him OOP like last night. Waste of a talent.
        Even Jorginho & James were higher up the pitch than him.
        Giving him this week but otherwise he looks like he's going to have to go

    14. Ayew Holding Mee Cork
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      1. Assuming you guys have Auba+Salah. Are you guys going to bring in KDB/Bruno early with the potential 0.1 price rise this week? 0.1 is pretty substantial at this point of the game.

      2. It's only GW1. But do you think it's still worth having TAA+Robbo with WBs such as Digne, Lamptey, Castagne, Ayling/Dallas, etc available?

      3. Wolves assets during GW3-7? How many are you going to have?

    15. CHRISFF
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      Is Brewster a lock in if he moves?
      which other member of the mods and cons league do you most want to finish above?
      Is triple Everton a good idea? (dcl james digne)
      With Siggy no longer a starter Is James Rodriguez likely to be on pens?

    16. MFPL
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      1. How many clean sheets can we genuinely see Liverpool keeping over the next 4-6 GW's? Liverpool's defenders have great attacking potential, but is it maybe worth bringing in someone like Digne, who has great attacking potential too and favourable fixtures?

      2. Is taking hits this early in the season a strategy that has been successful in the past?

    17. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Can we start again ?

      Martial v Richarlison

      Do we go on the eye test & stats for Richarlison or depend on United's post restart form for Martial, or get both in?!

    19. Buenas ArTetas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      How is Man Utd expected to lineup? can Van de Beek be relied upon to start? could be a brilliant differential to the bigger hitters if he plays.

    20. Sepp Blattered

      Power 3 midfield combo of Salah, Auba/KDB and Fernandes the shield this year?

      All highly owned individually but not as a collective. All on pens..

    21. wayne50
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Best replacement for Dele Alli?

    22. Stats Don\'t Lie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      1) Are we sleeping on Man U or are they being overrated?

      CRY bha next 2 but that's followed by a frankly tough run of TOT new CHE ARS eve. Is there a need to rush or can we afford to wait?

      2) With early season price change volatility and every 0.1 rise being equivalent to a 0.5 is there merit to going early with your moves?

      3) Leeds really exploited Gomez and TAA, could more teams follow suit, will Liverpool continue to play in a nonchalant manner having won the title last year.

      1. Flynny

      • 3 Years
      8 days, 14 hours ago

      I don't doubt that the Liverpool defence are gonna be great for attacking returns... but surely for the price you're paying you want attacking returns AND clean sheets... They really don't look good for the latter

      1. rojojojo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Is there more value at the 5-6m range for defenders?

    24. Ranger Mann
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      How hesitant are you to get a United player in for GW2 considering the following?

      +VE's - DGW incoming / Value / Fixtures (ok...ish)
      -VE's - Unknown form

      1. Ranger Mann
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        SEE ABOVE - replace United with City!

        Q: KdB rising this evening, does this force peoples hand for TV?

        Q: Can Auba outscore KdB this season, considering Pep Roulette and Arsenal only in PL. Can Foden/Mahrez act as the much unliked term 'coverage'!

    25. Ranger Mann
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      On a scale of 0 to 100 - how much are you all enjoying the Bamford Bandwagon?!

    26. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 10 hours ago

      Is Joe doing a Theresa May style epic U turn over the Fernandes to Salah transfer that he backed to the hilt a mere week ago?

  6. JamTart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Ings to Martial then hold Alli for another week and potentially do a -4 for alli and Auba to KdB and whoever looks the best pick if he flops again?

    1. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Don't get rid of Auba.

      1. JamTart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Why? His fixtures turn nasty. I'll see how he looks but it's hard not to want KdB or a city mid soon

        1. Invincibles
          • 6 Years
          8 days, 20 hours ago

          I think he can outscore KDB over the season and he turns up in big games. Certainly wouldn't lose him this week.

          1. JamTart
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 20 hours ago

            Never said I'd get rid this week, next. Are you an arsenal fan by any chance?

      Yep hold Alli although I'd be wary of getting rid of Ings. Martial will rise soonish though.

        It's not ideal but I want Martial more and cant afford both. If Werner is confirmed out I'll move him to martial but seems unlikely

    Thoughts mates?

    Ramsdale
    KWP; Dier; Trent; Robo
    Salah; Auba; ASM; Son
    Mitro; Werner

    Steer; Mitchell; Burke; Davis

    1) Save FT
    2) Son to J. Rodrigue
    3) Son to Greenwood
    4) Werner to Martial

    Cheers all!

    1. Gingerman
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Don't like any of those, but son to rod if I gotta choose

    2. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      3 imo

    Thoughts on either of these for an early WC team...

    (A)
    Pickford, Steer
    Saiss, Digne, Gabriel, Justin, Mitchell,
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, J Rod, ASM
    DCL, Jiminez, Brewster

    (B)
    McCarthy, Steer
    Saiss, Digne, Gabriel, Justin, Mitchell,
    Salah, Mahrez, Bruno, Willian, ASM
    DCL, Jiminez, Wilson

    1. vova

      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I think it's a bit too early for a WC, I really like the midfield for team A though.I'm not sure it's smart playing a WC and having Justin/Mitchell in since they might not be starting in a couple of weeks.

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      No Auba this week seems crazy and I think Steer is about to become 3rd choice at best.

  9. vova
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Hey guys, average first gameweek, that was saved by Salah and Aubameyang. This makes my next move a bit confusing because I was initially planning on bringing in Bruno/KDB but I can't take either Salah or Aubameyang now.

    Ramsdale Nyland
    TAA Davies KWP Taylor Mitchell
    Salah Aubameyang Son ASM Soucek
    Werner Adams Mitrovic

    0.5 ITB

    Son to Rashford seems like the logical move right?

    Thanks!

  10. Igzie08
    • 3 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    A) Son, Doherty -> Bruno, James
    B) Werner, Son -> DCL, Bruno
    C) Save ft

    1. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      A will prove well worth it

  11. JollyGoodYellows
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    What changes would you do here? 1FT and 0.5itb:.

    Mccarthy (Button)
    TAA Davies Justin Holding (Mitchell)
    Salah Alli Auba (Soucek Bissouma)
    Mitro Werner Ings

  12. lfcserg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Lads should I make any changes?

    McCarthy - Nyland
    TAA - Davies - KWP - Vinagre - Mitchell
    Auba - Salah - Alli - Rodriguez - Pereira
    Werner - Wilson - Brewster

    1FT
    Should I do Werner -> Martial?

    Any other suggestions?

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Alli and Rod to Bruno and ASM?

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Removing Rodriguez!? For a hit?

    "Christian was training with us last week, but he had a little bit of discomfort a couple of days ago where he was trying to train with us and being in contention for today, it would've been a big ask for today," Lampard added.

    "But he's had to take a few steps back so we'll have to see so that's one I don't have big news on at the minute. We'll see."

    No ideal what to do with Pulisic!!

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Sounds fragile, probably another 2 weeks out

    2. vova
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I don't think he will start vs Liverpool.

  14. Assist me a river
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    What to do with Alli?

    Sell Ings + Alli for DCL and Rashford?

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Not opposed to losing Alli but I wouldn’t lose Ings personally. Ings still has great fixtures

      1. Assist me a river
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Agree. Ings had deecent stats as well. Might stick with Alli, and just take the priceloss

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 20 hours ago

          Or just get Rodriguez?

        2. Assist me a river
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 20 hours ago

          Bit unsure about hit. Think he has the potential?

          Really want Rashford, thats the problem I guess

          1. Gregor
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            8 days, 20 hours ago

            You could just do Alli to Rodriguez and not take a hit, though I’d be tempted to do Martial as well. I thought Rodriguez looked great and has really good fixtures to come.

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I think I’d go J-Rod and Martial.

  15. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Anything against doing Ings Son to DCL Bruno?

    McCarthy
    TAA/Davies/Justin/Vinagre
    Auba/Salah/Son/ASM
    Werner/Ings

    Steer/Mitchell/Bissouma/Brewster

  16. gergin
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    So after 1st week, who is our №5 midfielder? I can`t see any tempting....

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Bissouma or Zambo, Soucek if you can afford it.

      1. gergin
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        I have Saka as fifth now, so can afford anyone, but it determinate how many free funds i will have.

  17. Visionaries
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    I done Trent & Antonio > Digne & Martial.
    Feel free to shoot me down.

    Did Werner go off injured? I missed the game

    1. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      TAA a season keeper for me.

  18. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Bamford and Willian gone up in price, Price changes predictions not so accurate this time

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Never mind, I am an idiot.

  19. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    For long term which forward line up do you prefer?
    A. DCL Wilson Werner (current as is)
    B. DCL Wood Martial
    C. DCL Martial Jimenez (take cash from midfield)

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      C. Jimi is great value.

  20. Tinmen

    Folks, any Greenwood owners worried that he will be benched this weekend ?

    1. abzyyyyyy
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Not an owner but as a united supporter I’m pretty sure he’s nailed for now

    2. Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      Yep?

  21. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    My squad is really thin ATM , Vinagre benched, stuck with two 4,5 mids.

    Would you do - Havertz - J Rod (-4) to save 1,0 to upgrade next week?

    Ings-Martial already penned in

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      For sure.

  22. jose1
    • 6 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Mane owners is it as simple as a FT to Bruno tomorrow before price rise?

    1. Kitsune
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      That’s what I did

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Could be

    3. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Sensible but also has a high enough chance of coming back to bite you

      1. jose1
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        I really feel like mane could score against Chelsea. The price rise from Bruno tomorrow makes it hard not too

    4. Kitsune
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Not sure it was the right thing to do mind. A bit knee jerky I was annoyed he didn’t get a share of the spoils. Who’s to say he won’t score against Chelsea?

  23. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Damn I'm to confused right now.. Which of these?(0itb)
    A) Ings, Havertz to Martial,James Rodríguez(4)
    B) Ings, Havertz to DCL, Rashford (-4)
    C) Save and keep Ings and Havertz

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      I am looking at A

    2. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      C

    3. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      C, wouldnt bank on James yet.

  24. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Which GK to play??

    McCarthy (TOT)

    or

    Ryan (new)

    1. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Ryan for me

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Andddd the Gk rotation headaches begin

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        haha yep, was straightforward til that Spurs performance..

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      McCarthy

  25. Jacky boy
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    which one to start ?
    A) bissouma vs new
    B) mitchell vs utd

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Bissouma.

  26. abzyyyyyy
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Using my wildcard.

    Thoughts on Richarlison (vs WBA) outscoring Jimenez (Man City) this week? I’ll then bring in Jimenez after that.

    I have a Rodriguez but do feel Everton will bang in a few goals this week

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Richarlison could have had three or four goals v TOT. He is going to get a lot of chances though so he is sure to make a few hauls.

  27. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    What’s better?
    A) Salah + James
    B) Bruno + Havertz

    1. vova
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      which James?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 20 hours ago

        Well Certainly not daniel James

      2. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 18 hours ago

        should be hames jeez come on guys its one letter,puts a stop to whose that!!!!

    2. abzyyyyyy
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      A

    3. patricio33
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 19 hours ago

      A without a doubt

  28. Babelcopter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Yes keep selling Werner! If he is about to drop price I'm gonna sell him too and get Martial in. Then get Timo back after Liverpool for a jammy 9.4-9.3 price! That's profit!

  29. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Play:

    A) Reece James (LIV)
    B) Saiss (MCI)

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      A better attacking potential

      Chelsea been relatively good defensively at home post lockdown

  30. Gazpilicueta
    • 6 Years
    8 days, 20 hours ago

    Any thoughts on Mahrez?

    could be a steal at 8.5 no?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      Too much rotation, no go for me

    2. diabydoesgallas
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 20 hours ago

      He was a fine pick at the end of last season. Good differential
