Another start for budget FPL defender Kilman as Darlow is passed fit for Newcastle

The second of three Premier League matches to take place on Sunday sees Wolverhampton Wanderers entertain Newcastle United.

Kick-off at Molineux is at 16:30 BST.

With the exception of Adama Traore (£6.4m), there is good news all round for owners of Wolves’ most-popular Fantasy Premier League assets.

Max Kilman (£4.1m) is handed his third straight start at centre-back, with Romain Saiss (£5.2m) again deployed at left wing-back.

Kilman was the most-bought FPL defender of Gameweek 6, with almost 340,000 Fantasy managers recruiting the budget asset for this fixture.

Traore’s third benching in a row means that Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) is again joined in attack by Daniel Podence (£5.5m) and Pedro Neto (£5.5m), meanwhile.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s only change to the side that beat Leeds United is a like-for-like one, with Ruben Neves (£5.4m) replacing Joao Moutinho (£5.4m) in central midfield.

The team news for the visitors is a bit more complicated, with Steve Bruce making four alterations from his starting XI in Gameweek 6.

There isn’t a change between the posts, however, with Karl Darlow (£5.0m) passed fit to feature.

Emil Krafth (£4.4m) and Joelinton (£5.8m) are both benched, with Isaac Hayden (£4.9m) also among the substitutes as Steve Bruce opts not to risk his half-fit midfielder.

Jonjo Shelvey (£5.4m), who is set for groin surgery, misses out completely.

Fabian Schar (£4.9m), Ryan Fraser (£5.8m), Jacob Murphy (£4.9m) and Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) come into the Magpies’ rather offensive-looking starting XI.


Wolverhampton Wanderers XI: Rui Patricio, Boly, Coady, Kilman, Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Saiss, Neto, Jimenez, Podence.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Lewis, Almiron, Hendrick, Fraser, Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Murphy.

        Personally it would be painful watch City without owning KDB

            Nice moves. Masuaku looks decent if you want to save the half mil

            Wait for Brighton game tomorrow.

            Maupay has scored well this season and stats great. That said, both replacement players are good

            Doherty out is my transfer this week. Not sure who to go for. Looking for someone around 4.5 so probably thinking Dallas, Ayling or Lamptey. Any other options you guys think I should consider?

                    KWP rotates well with Lamptey if required. I play Lamptey most weeks, this week im benching Lamptey for KWP.

                  Is James to Cancelo a good move??

                    Not as bad as the below would have you think. It is his spot to lose and he has decent attacking threat. I'd wait until GW10 though.

                  Im not even angry about Dignes red, I think we all knew it was a possibility owning someone like Digne. Its like owning Aurier, it can be a bad day just as easy a good one
                  Plus its an easy way to get Chilwell who I didnt have room for, altho in hindisght having doen the move already I maybe should have got Reguilon so I could do Guaita>Mendy somewhere down the line :s

                  1. BeWater
                      1 month, 7 days ago

                      I think Chilwell is a good move. If I didn't have a couple of other problems in my team I would try and get him in. I looked at his heatmap and he's playing pretty advanced.

                        I think he is the better option then Reguilion, but yea just Guaita is a potential issue. I made the move already so guess I sit on Guaita for while and see, im sure he will come good. Could go Leno, or Fabi at some point if he keeps trolling though
