FPL Gameweek 2 team news: Injury updates on Werner, Aguero, Pulisic and more

After a quiet day on Thursday in which only the managers of the three newly promoted clubs and Crystal Palace faced the media, there was a lot more activity on Friday.

A total of 13 Premier League managers held pre-match press conferences today, with the headline news below.

Chelsea

Ben Chilwell (heel), Hakim Ziyech (knee) and Christian Pulisic (hamstring) have all failed to recover ahead of the Liverpool match on Sunday, while Thiago Silva is still not match-fit enough.

Timo Werner has recovered from a dead leg, at least, while Mateo Kovacic returns from suspension in the middle of the park.

Frank Lampard told the media:

Ben Chilwell is not ready for the game, and Christian Pulisic is not ready for the game. We’re hope they’re training and progressing over the next week or so.

Hakim Ziyech is also not ready for the game, same story. Timo Werner is fit.

Thiago has been training with us for the last three or four days. We are just working with him on his fitness at the moment, so Liverpool will come too soon for him.

Manchester City

Manchester City look set to be without Aymeric Laporte (match fitness) and Sergio Aguero (knee) on Monday night, although Riyad Mahrez is in contention for a place in the matchday squad after returning to training in midweek.

Pep Guardiola told reporters:

[Aguero] still hasn’t made one training session with us. Riyad came back three or four days ago, he is training. Today is the first day that Aymeric is coming back to us. I think Riyad will be available to go there, Laporte not yet.

Manchester United

should-we-be-planning-for-manchester-united-fpl-attacking-players 5

Phil Jones (knee) and Axel Tuanzebe (foot) are United’s only confirmed injury-related absentees for Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did remind us that “some players are at different stages of their training programmes” and said of Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba:

Both Luke [Shaw] and Paul [Pogba] are available for selection – for how long we need them.

Asked about Mason Greenwood, Solskjaer added:

He’s part of the group. With the testing and the COVID protocols, he trained by himself for a little while, we had some tests done, and as soon it was possible, with us. He’s a big part of this group.

New signing Donny van de Beek also got a mention, with his manager saying:

He’s settled in really well. He played well [in a friendly] against Aston Villa so you’re likely to see him, but of course, I’m not going to name the team here today, I’ll have to do that to the boys after training.

Of course, [van de Beek, Fernandes and Pogba] can start together. Then again, you’ve got Scott McTominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic in midfield as well. I’m sure we’ll see them together, I’m not going to tell you if it’s tomorrow or not.

Liverpool

It was all quiet on the injury front at Liverpool, who announced the signing of Thiago Alcantara on Friday.

Jurgen Klopp said of the Reds’ fitness situation:

Intense week, a few little things here and there. In the moment, should be OK. Nobody is coming back and the rest, we have to see. Still two days to go, two training sessions, but for the moment, we seem OK.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) remains out.

Arsenal

Arsenal reported this morning that David Luiz (neck spasm) is “making good progress and back in full training”, following his no-show in Gameweek 1

Calum Chambers (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring), Emile Smith Rowe (shoulder) and Sokratis (calf) remain out, however.

In good news for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang owners, Mikel Arteta also confirmed that the forward remains ahead of Willian in the penalty-taking pecking order.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Steve Bruce is still without a cluster of players for Sunday’s match against Brighton but Allan Saint-Maximin has shaken off a minor fitness issue and was declared fit by his manager.

Bruce said:

It’s still a bit too early for (Paul) Dummett, [Matty] Longstaff, (Fabian) Schär and (Martin) Dúbravka. Everybody else seems to be OK. We got a clean bill of health from the other night which was refreshing. Allan Saint-Maximin is fine.

Everton

Budget FPL defender Jarrad Branthwaite (ankle) will be unavailable until after the October international break, joining Mason Holgate (toe) on the sidelines ahead of Saturday’s match against West Brom.

Carlo Ancelotti said of the £4.0m-rated youngster and of the Toffees’ overall fitness situation:

He had a problem on his ankle, he is out for at least three to five weeks. He doesn’t need surgery but he has to rest at least one month.

Mason Holgate, no news, he is out. The other players are all fit.

Southampton

As well as batting away questions about Danny Ings‘ future, Ralph Hasenhuttl revealed that Nathan Redmond (ankle) will miss Sunday’s match against Spurs.

Stuart Armstrong (thigh) could be back, at least, with his manager saying:

At the moment we have Reddy [Nathan Redmond] from the game against Brentford with a light ankle ligament injury and isn’t available I don’t think for the weekend.

Stu [Armstrong] was for the first time back out on the pitch today, but if that’s enough to start at the weekend I don’t know. Maybe he will be part of the squad this weekend.

Leicester City

James Maddison made his return from injury as a substitute in Gameweek 1 and both he and Wes Morgan (hamstring) have been in full training this week.

Brendan Rodgers said of the pair:

James and Wes have been training with the squad all week. It’s another week further on for them, so that’s great news.”

He was out for a long time, James. It’s going to be a really, really long season for us. We don’t have to rush anyone back. We’ve got a good squad of players, we’re hoping to add to that.

Certainly, the players we have, we can’t afford to be risking any injury, if they’re not ready, so he’s been progressing really, really well and we’ll assess that over the next 24 hours.

If he doesn’t start, we have a midweek game, and as we know, we’ve got a run of games now which sees us through to Christmas, so there will be plenty of football for all the players.

Ricardo Pereira (ACL) is continuing his rehabilitation but unlikely to be available until “the end of October”.

Rodgers also assuaged any fears that Jamie Vardy was suffering any lingering effects from a fall in the match against West Brom, saying:

It looked a sore one at the time, but he’s training this week and looked sharp.

Burnley

Jack Cork (ankle), Ben Mee (thigh) and Ashley Barnes (groin) remain unavailable for Burnley’s first Premier League match of the new season, having not recovered from the injuries that curtailed their 2019/20 campaigns – although Barnes will play for the under-23s next week.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson (knee) will join them on the sidelines, having been stretchered off in the Clarets’ EFL Cup tie against Sheffield United on Thursday.

James Tarkowski (toe) has a chance of featuring, however, with Sean Dyche saying after full-time against the Blades that his sought-after centre-half would “hopefully” recover in time.

Brighton and Hove Albion

best-of-a-bad-bunch-analysing-the-4-5-midfielders

Graham Potter confirmed that Adam Lallana and Ben White will rejoin team training today after limping off with knocks on Monday.

Brighton will make a late decision on their involvement against Newcastle.

Dale Stephens was forced off in midweek, meanwhile, but we’ve had no update on him as yet.

Aston Villa

Differential FPL XI - High Risk, High Reward 1

Dean Smith confirmed on Friday that new signing Emiliano Martinez was “ready to play” and while stopping short of naming the former Arsenal shot-stopper as his new number one, did say that “you don’t get many opportunities to get a goalkeeper of his calibre at this stage of his career”.

Bjorn Engels (thigh), Wesley (knee) and Tom Heaton (knee) are out.

West Ham United

Mark Noble (toe) and Jack Wilshere (ankle) were the only two names mentioned by David Moyes when asked about injuries, with the West Ham boss saying:

Mark Noble has got a bit of a toe injury and we just didn’t risk him today in training because we want to see how he is. He took an injection in it, so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and hopefully, he’ll be OK.

Jack had a scan on his ankle on Wednesday. He’s got a little bit of bone growth on his ankle which is causing him irritation. He rolled his ankle and felt it, so that’s why we got it checked, but he’s OK and he’s back out training.


More detailed information and predicted line-ups can be found in the Team News tab, which will be refreshed before the Gameweek 2 deadline at 11:00 BST on Saturday.

    First of all, don't laugh at me, we all make mistakes. Now, who would you get for Pulisic and Jota? I'm quite set on Rashford and that leaves me with 5.5m for replacement. If West Ham's fixtures wouldn't be so bad I would get Soucek without doubt, but not sure now. Podence looks good too, but Soucek leaves me with 0.5m to upgrade Mitro or Adams to Wilson or Wood. Thoughts?

    1. Ayew Holding Mee Cork
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      James and Podence.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rodriguez, Podence

    3. Chris_White
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Harrison

    4. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      both were unlucky

      Rashford & Podence or Hamez & Grealish

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

        This actually

    5. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rashford and Podence

    6. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Thanks all. I think I'll go for Rashford and Podence. Forgot I'm selling Auba for KDB or Sterling next week too so will have another 0.5m. Would want Trossard ideally instead for Podence, but Podence is also good.

    7. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Rashford & Podence

    8. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Pulisic & Jota xD

      I'd go Rashford + Harrison.

      Will likely pay off right away. Harrison is a nifty differential. Great player, plays much more offensively than the more popular Klich.

      1. Sgt Frank Drebin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Well those weren't my best picks in history 😀

    9. Leonard hatred

      Jota is off to Liverpool apparently.

      1. Leonard hatred
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        if you've got one of the pool forwards it might be a decent auto-sub punt.

        it might also be an awful idea. who knows?

        1. Sgt Frank Drebin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I don't think a sub for 6.5m is a good idea...

    10. Clam.
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      That's unfortunate. Had Pulisic myself.

      I reckon either Hamez or Rashford are your best bets. Podence/Barnes could be great differentials given their fixtures.

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

      Rash and Doucouré

    12. JayKay1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Doucouré, there's no other £5.5m out there with his 110+ consistent returns over 3 seasons, and that was with a poor Watford... I'm expecting a larger haul this season in a much improved EVE team... And good fixtures to boot...

  2. JackQualt

    Are Justin starts assured?

    1. F4L

      Yes, till at least GW8 apparently

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes for the short term.

    3. JayKay1

      Yep, Pereira not back before end of Oct...

    So Jota looks like he has thrown his toys out the pram midweek? Podence looking nailed would we say? Thanks.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No, he's just close to joining Barca. Excited for Podencinho

  4. Eriksen Maestro
    • 2 Years

    Going no Liverpool defense on WC - will bring on when Liverpool look better defensively...anyone else having same thoughts?

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Can't leave out TAA 😀

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Thiago says hello. LFPc defence going to rule again.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        *LFC*

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Too early for me in any season. Liv def for whom?

      Could be a waste of a vital chip - strategy for getting TAA/Rob back in?

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yes, same here

    5. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I can't understand the logic. If you're focusing solely on CS potential then OK, I know Liverpool have some tricky fixtures coming up and they conceded in those matches (Chelsea away/Arsenal home) last season but you get Trent/Robbo for their attacking potential plus being part of the best team in the league and when they perform, the best defence too.

      19/20 Stats
      Actual assists:
      KDB - 20, Trent - 13, Robbo - 12

      Big Chances Created:
      KDB 33, Mahrez 18, Trent 18, Robbo 14, Salah 13

      Accurate Final 1/3 Passes:
      KDB 711, Robbo 639, Dilva 593, Grealish 558, Willian 555, Bilva 552, Trent 540

      Key Passes:
      KDB 137, Grealish 91, Trent 87 (Robbo 61).

      Last season FPL Points: Trent 210, Robbo 181. And the season before, they got similar scores too (185, 213).

      Liverpool might concede in some matches this season, yes, but in Trent and Robbo they have two of the best outright players in the league who will always provide almost unrivalled attacking threat in any game they participate in.
      You can spread your money a bit more by leaving them out, but really, if you think of them both as being midfielders, who compares for that price? Plus, they get CS points and will reap the rewards of the BPS by virtue of being a defender not midfielder.

  5. The Mastermind

    Son > Rodriguez for a -4?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Horrible decision

      1. The Mastermind
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Gives me 1.5 to invest elsewhere, and I’m not convinced Son will get more points

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I don't know your team so I can't say what the extra 1.5 does. On the face of it, I consider it a poor decision.

          1. The Mastermind

            Mccarthy
            TAA - Justin - Saiss
            Salah - Perez - Son - Auba - Jorhinho

              Pardon my ignorance, but who is Perez?

              1. Clam.
                • 6 Years

                Leicester mid.

              Perez will be gold against bur

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

        Jesus christ its only a -4. Let him live a little. The amount of pessimism around hits on this site is a joke

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Did that exact transfer last night but for free. Would definitely not do it for a hit

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Why not!

    4. Clam.
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Hmm tough one. Consider how Hamez would have to score Vs how Son would have to blank to justify the -4.

      Long term, possibly worth it but Son is a proven asset so hard to justify the -4.

    5. ReindeerHotdog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      It depends how you view that hit.

      Taking hits is fine, but it shouldn't be seen as a viable strategy each and every week. I mean that you should ideally be looking a few GWs ahead whenever you build your team. That way you can avoid point-chasing and focus solely on having a stable, well-structured team.

      If you're looking at that -4pt hit in the context of say, the next 3 GWs, as long as you break even then you've done alright.
      As long as the hit is being made because you think the player you're bringing in will get at least the same amount of points (-4 included) then on the face of it, it's a logical decision.
      If however, you're bringing him in due to what happened last week and last week alone, it's a poor decision.

      Being able to breakdown your season into small chunks of GWs is helpful but having an actual plan in place for the entire season is almost essential if you want to improve on your OR.

  6. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 8 days ago

    How many points should a player score to be good, great, excellent value? Can anyone give me a list of the price points?

    For example, me thinking about Jimenez - scores 210 points at 8.5 FW, decent value? Ings scores 170 as a similar 8.5 FW - you're getting exactly what you paid for?

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'd say any player who is 9.5mil and under would have had a great season if they can break the 200 point barrier.

      If Ings got 170 that'd be poor value though if you kept for the whole season.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Looking at that >9.5M bracket, there are serious contenders for that 200+ point tally. Pulisic, Jimenez, Martial, Werner, LIV defenders

        It's a lot easier said than done, though.

        1. Collie01
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Barring another Lundstram type figure emerges, Liverpool defenders are probably the most underpriced assets in the game.

          Pulisic should score well when he plays but with injuries and being managed carefully, he probably won't get the minutes.

          Marital, Werner, Jimenez all have potential to score 200+ for sure.

        2. Clam.
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I like this approach and I think it's definitely worth considering this season with some generously priced (imo) players.

          It'll be a case of determining the 'purple patches' of these options, so to speak.

          As a Chelsea fan, I'm skeptical of Pulisic achieving 200 by means of consistent returns. I reckon due to squad depth in the attacking mid and wing department, his minutes will be managed due to cup runs / CL. In this case, Puli could hit rich veins of form and then see himself playing 70, 80, 20 mins, etc.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yes, Pulisic is unlikely to get the minutes to achieve that points tally. When on the pitch though, he should be incredible.

  7. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Best option?

    1. Foden + Dallas
    2. Podence + Keane + 0.5m
    3. Soucek + Digne

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      2 could be great this season

    2. PastaConcerto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think Keane is a sneaky way to get nailed Everton def, if you cannot afford Digne

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      2

  8. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Either of these worth a -4? 1.5m ITB.

    A. Ings >> Martial
    B. Davies >> Digne

    McCarthy
    TAA, Justin, Egan, Davies
    Salah, Auba, Rodríguez, Saint-Max
    Werner, Ings
    (Nyland, Mitchell, Bissouma, Davis)

    1. Pep bites Kun

      A. but should have been part of gw1 strategy for free 🙂

      where did your FT go?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        It was but then Pulisic didn’t even make the bench and then misses GW2 all together.
        Pulisic >> Rodríguez. What could I do?

      2. Clam.
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Hindsight is a blessing.

      3. Whiskerz

        My moneys on Jamez

    2. zizoo10

      A

    3. Clam.
      • 6 Years

      A if you must. I'd consider saving your 4 points and get Jimi next week instead.

      Podence over Klich

    2. Peteex

      Looks great but would myself consider Harrison or Podence instead of Klich

      Maybe, but lately price changes have been a bit illogical

    Benching Saiss feels so wrong this week given that he was my highest scorer last week...

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He was also the best player on the pitch. Or one of them.

  12. HurriKane

    Is Podence nailed if Jota moves to Liverpool?

    Or Is Neto a threat to Podence ? If Adama plays in front 3

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Fairly.

      Yes, but I think he favours Pod on the left.

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Any source or previous occurrences to back it up?

        Or just pure guess work?

        1. Original Pirate Material
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Restart positioning on terms of favouring on the left.

          In terms of nailedness, im taking a view he is fairly nailed.

          Im playing WC in GW3, if he starts in GW he is in my team alongside Jimi.

      2. Pep bites Kun

    2. RECKLESS

      Podence played gw1 and benched in EFL along with Jiminez. Looks 1st choice. Can advice me below mate?

        With Fabrizio reporting it it most definitely is happening

        1. HurriKane

          Tim Spiers wolves tier 1 also reporting it

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I hope not

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        You guys are selling Brewster for 25m and Hoever for 10m.. Maybe more people will leave - Shaqiri etc

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

          Wouldn’t pay 50 for Werner and only 30 for Thiago but it’s still taken ages, seems like they’re not open to throwing money around

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Not saying that that's a bad move but it baffles me why they couldn't pay the extra for Werner

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Werner wanted to join Chelsea

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          No, he wanted to join Liverpool

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

            No, he wanted to join Chelsea

      2. ReindeerHotdog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        The Liverpool ethos seems to revolve around chemistry and squad togetherness.
        It would be harsh to bring in Werner, expect him to slot in and gel instantly while having to drop Firmino.
        Firmino is highly rated in the Liverpool camp and I'd expect we have at least another one or two seasons where he's the main centre-forward at the club.

        I get the feeling that if Werner was ready to come to Liverpool in a couple of seasons, it would be a done deal. Just too soon.

      3. Hy liverpool
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Leipzig wanted the 50m cash and atm most of our transfers fees are on stages... Like Thiago 5m every years etc..

    1. Bucket Man

  17. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Looking for gw 2 punts before WC gw3
    Please help me select an option
    1) James to Coleman(wba) (less upside but with CB Thiago still out I am looking at no CS vs liv and hopefully CS for Coleman)
    2) Son to Willian (But Soton defence looked shoddy in EFL cup so dont know if it will haunt me)
    3) Werner to Martial/Richarlison (Werner looked great in GW 1 but Mart/Rich has easy fixtures)

    1. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      1 probably the most boring but Son could score well, and Liverpool Chelsea could be an open match.

      1. RECKLESS
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        If not Coleman I save FT just in case I dont WC and play Soucek vs Ars. But not confident after I saw Arsenals good defence stats

    2. Thia6o
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think i would do a punt on Son > James Rodríguez and use those leftover funds elsewhere...

  18. Bucket Man
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Don’t like hits but made two mistakes. Starting with Pulisic and bringing Martial in early in the week which I planned pre GW1. Pulisic to Rodriguez worth a -4 though or stick and hope he is back next GW. Leaves me with no Chelsea though. Please help as overthinking!

    McCarthy
    TAA, Egan, Ayling, Taylor
    Salah, Aubameyang, ASM
    Martial, Ings, Mitrovic

    1. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I think I would WC that and just keep Auba Salah TAA Mccarthy Martial Bruno...next week do Auba to KDB

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks but I’m not wildcarding to as late as pos, much better advantage later on.

        1. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Then its best to not take hit.

          1. Bucket Man
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Thanks

    2. Thia6o
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I really do not think a -4 even as much as a -8 this early in the season is such a bad thing if you only want to change 1,2 or 3 players to balance your team. Any more than that its WC time.

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. I’d keep him if I knew he was back next week. Would be no Chelsea for the foreseeable future either.

    3. Clam.
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Puli won't get any minutes this week.

      1. Bucket Man
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. If he was back next week I’d keep but not sure that’s likely.

  19. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    So is Alli - > James (-4) worth a hit or hold?

    1. super zlatan
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I’d take that hit

    2. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Im doing it. Annoying lost out on the price drop though.

    3. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Went for it.

      That 0.5 will be crucial for me incoming weeks

    4. Mo Mané No Problems
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Good move. I already did it for a hit. James should pay off the -4 over the upcoming juicy fixtures.

  20. bashtag
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Gutted, Pulisic out means i either:
    A. bench and bring on Dallas
    B. Take a hit for rashford
    Opinions much appreciated

    1. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dallas is decent

      1. super zlatan
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        A

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Dallas faces Fulham, so you won’t have a better GW to use him anytime soon.

      1. bashtag
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Avoid the hit it is!

    3. Bucket Man
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Same dilemma but with Charlie Taylor. Think il stick

  21. arndff_
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Better pair long term:
    a) Bruno, DCL
    b) JamRod, Martial

    1. super zlatan
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A for me

        your team set?

    2. RECKLESS
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A long term as Jrod loves assist which give 3pts whereas DCL loves goals and get 4pts. Plus bruno on penos and midfielder. Can advice me above bro?

    Would you take a -4 hit to move ASM to either Podence or Harrison/Klich?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      no why? makes no sense

    2. Twisted Saltergater

    Potential Wc team for this gw?
    Ryan .
    Digne. Saiss . Struijk .
    Auba . Bruno . Salah . Bissouma .
    Werner . Martial . Wilson
    Bench - Button, Mitchel, Ferguson, Elneny.
    0ITB
    Will replace Auba Gw 3 to KDB and will use the 0.5 to upgrade to a 4.5 def then will look to oust Elneny once more funds become available.
    Thoughts?

  25. andrinho
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Transfer out for Bruno:
    a) Havertz
    Or
    b) Son

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      A

  26. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    A) Havertz to James Rodríguez with FT
    B) Save FT and do Davies to Saiss next week

    Any improvements to this WC Team please chaps?

    Martinez
    TAA, Digne, James, Justin
    Salah, Auba, Fernandes, Podence
    Martial, Wilson

    (Steer, Bissouma, Mitchell, Brewster)

    GW3 = Auba -> KDB
    GW4 = Upgrade Bench (0.5 ITB)

    ..unsure on James vs. Saiss and Podence vs. other 5.5 MIDs (would prefer *some* Chelsea coverage for the upcoming fixtures).

    Cheers

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years

      Looks good!
      Think I'd like to have Saiss with wolves run of fixtures..

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Yeah I'm torn between them but Saiss & Podence seems a little too much Wolves for me.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Isn't there a possibility that KDB rises in price tonight? Can't to your GW3 transfer of that's the case

      I do like your team, mine is similar.
      I've found that for now my team looks better without Trent. Not a popular move and I can see why.. but just try it!

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Cheers. Hopefully he won't rise - I'd be able to get him in but yeah I'd only have 0.4 ITB to upgrade which would be a massive pain!

        Yeah - even TAA to VVD really helps, but I just can't bear to go without him 😀

        Good luck!

  29. fabregasismagic

    Any thoughts on what to do with this lot?

    Vinagre - > Holding / Lewis and play instead of Saka?
    Son -> Rodríguez?

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin Egan
    Auba Havertz Son Saka
