The Rodriguez fitness latest as unavailability issues harm Calvert-Lewin’s FPL output

Southampton 2-0 Everton

  • Goals: James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m), Che Adams (£5.8m)
  • Assists: Danny Ings (£8.5m) x2
  • Red Cards: Lucas Digne (£6.2m)
  • Bonus: Ward-Prowse x3, Ings, Adams x2

Southampton secured a convincing win over a poor Everton side that is perhaps beginning to buckle under the strain of injuries and suspensions.

Goals from James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m) and Che Adams (£5.8m), both set up by the Saints’ most popular Fantasy Premier League (FPL) asset, the 18%-owned Danny Ings (£8.5m), earned the home side a deserved victory.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team comprehensively outplayed the visitors, out-shooting them 12-6 and having three times the number of attempts on target (six to two).

Small wonder, then, that the coach was a happy man post-match:

I think it was overall one of our best performances.

There was nothing positive to be found from an Everton perspective, however.

Toothless Toffees

Much of the pre-match talk, at least in Fantasy circles, revolved around the health of Toffees midfielder James Rodriguez (£8.0m).

In the end, his now-legendary haematoma didn’t keep him from playing, but it might as well have done.

The 38.9%-owned playmaker was a peripheral figure for much of the game. Then again, that was one up on many of the visiting team as Carlo Ancelotti’s side struggled to deal with Southampton’s pressing, organisation and commitment.

The Colombian also seemed to be struggling towards the end of the match, with his manager saying:

I think we have to check in the next few days. He was tired at the end, he felt his muscle a little bit. But I don’t think it’s a big problem.

The most-owned player in FPL, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m and 56.8%), had a terrible day. Starved of service, he managed only two penalty area touches and didn’t have a single attempt.

In fact, he touched the ball just 18 times all game. Only one player, Southampton midfielder Ibrahima Diallo (£4.5m), had fewer, with 14. But he was on the pitch for four minutes.

A booking added to his, and his owners’, woes. A decent enough short-term schedule should mean Calvert-Lewin’s one-pointer doesn’t lead to too many sales, although there are other reasons why investment in Everton assets is looking less appealing all in.

In Squad We Can’t Trust

The Merseyside derby dismissal of Richarlison (£7.8m) had an impact on the strength and balance of Ancelotti’s team on the south coast.

The Toffees have not won a single game without the winger in their squad since his move to the north-west and that unwanted record was extended on Sunday.

Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) filled in for the Brazilian and was hooked after 45 unconvincing minutes, while a second start of the season for Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.9m) lasted 12 minutes longer but wasn’t much better, although the Iceland international did hit the bar with a long-range shot in the first half.

But the real problem came from a hamstring injury that denied the team the experience and expertise of Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) at right-back.

With three other defenders already on the injury list, that meant centre-half Ben Godfrey (£5.0m) shifting across to the flank. The experiment didn’t go well.

Hasenhuttl denied that his team targeted Godfrey:

No, it was a coincidence that we played more on this side. It’s more important that you’re dangerous on every side, flexibility is the key. We lured them a little bit and played through the lines.

But the reality spoke differently, with left-back Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) finding himself much further forward than team-mate Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) and creating three chances to the right-back’s nil.

Coleman’s absence also had an impact on Rodriguez, who was forced that much deeper and less central in a vain bid to provide some kind of help for Godfrey.

As if Ancelotti’s defensive problems weren’t already marked, Lucas Digne (£6.2m) dished out some more pain for his boss when he was shown a straight red card for a challenge, part frustration, part spite, on Walker-Peters in the 71st minute.

Hasenhuttl was not happy:

Yes. It was nasty. It looked like he tried to kick him first and then the stamp. It was a clear red card.

And neither was Ancelotti:

The red card was a joke, it was not intentional, for sure it was not violent. Maybe all this talk all week against Pickford, against Richarlison, affected the decision and if so it’s not right, it’s not fair. We will appeal, for sure.

Intentional or not, it ended in a nasty rake down Walker-Peters’ achilles. And unless that appeal succeeds, the 18.7%-owned Digne will not be in league action again until Gameweek 10 at the end of November.

In their current state, Everton can ill afford his absence, although it does throw up the intriguing possibility of budget FPL defender Niels Nkounkou (£4.0m) getting a game or three, with Fabian Delph (£4.9m) another candidate for the role.

But, just six games in, Everton’s squad is down to the bare bones in places and the loss of Digne is another potential short-term blow to Calvert-Lewin, given how much service the full-back provides from the left flank.

Saints Alive

Southampton are considerably less troubled in that department, with the one change to the side on Sunday forced by loanee Theo Walcott (£5.8m) not being eligible to play against his parent club.

Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) filled in well enough, but it was the strike partnership of Adams and Ings that really caught the eye.

The former scored for the second straight Gameweek and has hauled in three of his last four starts, while Ings continues to show impressive consistency this season.

His first two assists of the campaign meant he’s produced attacking returns in four of the six matches to date.

In terms of value, the pair are ploughing remarkably similar furrows – the more expensive Ings is producing 4.6 points per million (PPM), the cheaper (but less productive) Adams 4.7 PPM.

They were both outshone, however, by midfielder Ward-Prowse, who scored his first goal of the season and took home the maximum bonus award for a double-digit haul.

The Saints’ next six fixtures are fairly favourable and the team as a whole is in a good place, with three clean sheets from their last four unbeaten matches.

That promotes investment in the side from front to back, whereas the opposite looks true for a threadbare-looking Everton squad.


Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy;  Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Diallo 86′), Redmond; Ings, Adams (N’Lundulu 89′). 

Everton XI (4-3-3): Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane, Digne; Doucoure (Gordon 58′), Allan, Sigurdsson (Delph 58′); Rodriguez, Iwobi (Bernard 45′), Calvert-Lewin.

    So captained Salah this gw.

    A. Keep it on Salah
    B. Captain Kane or Son

    1. puhd
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I did too. Think I will keep it on Salah.

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      so did I... I am on Son.

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      So did I. Want to see what Spurs do. If they score 5 there is no way I give armband to Salah. If they blank, it's another story.

    4. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      i captained salah.

      barring injury I am going Kane for Brighton home.

  2. puhd
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I decided to go with a power 5 midfield.
    This is my team:

    McCarthy
    Justin Taylor Kilman Dallas Mitchel
    Son Sterling Bruno Salah Rodriguez
    Mitro Jimmy Brewster

    Got 1ft. Thinking of Mitro out for Bamford? But might hold becasue Mitro has West Brom home next GW

    1. aborg
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I like it. Mine is similar but a slightly stronger defense and have Jorginho instead of Bruno. I don't own Liverpool defs either but afraid of when they come good again we would need some good tweaking to our team to bring TAA or Robbo back !

    2. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      You simply can't do it this week.

  3. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    - Jimmy > Kane worth it? Will captain salah this gw but Kane (c) in gw8

    - other weak areas in my team is Barnes who has blanked three weeks in a row for me

    1. puhd
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      hold until GW 8

    2. Cech's Magic Hat
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Ship Barnes imo

    3. JIMMY764
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      For free?

      I'm doing that move this week barring any injuries before Kane rises again mid-week.

  4. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Repost:

    Martínez
    Robbo | Chilwell | Saïss | Mitchell
    Salah | Sterling | Son | Zaha
    Ings | Jiménez

    Forster | Dunne | Soucek | Brewster

    58 points currently... 0.0 ITB.

    I would really like to do Dunne to Kilman as currently there's a spot on my field for a sub 5.0 option (Soucek/Mitchell/Brewster/Dunne). My current thinking in order to find 0.1 is to wait and see whether KDB may drop to 11.4 as I would prefer him over Sterling, however, by then Kilman is likely to have risen.
    My other option would be Soucek to a 4.5 mid (if Soucek drops to 4.8, which is likely I will have the 0.3 ITB to upgrade the 4.5 mid back to him, a bit messy I know. I'm pretty set with this team over the next few weeks albeit an unforeseen injury so I'll likely have a spare trade.

    What are your thoughts?

    1. puhd
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      team looks good. Hold your ft.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        yes. but if Kilman keeps playing I can't afford him at 4.2 :/

    2. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      hold ft ,commendations on a gloriously disguised brag as well...

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        2 FTs and Kilman 4.1 still as of next GW, would make things very easy.

  5. claretparrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Got Kane but not C so don't want him to score. Worst feeling in FPL

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I'll take his points. Don't care about overall rank.

      All that matters to me is mini-leagues.

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Wow, just saw your overall rank.

      Well done.

    3. Puntillimon

      Wow well done

    4. No Professionals
      • 3 Years

    Morning. Any early ideas what to do with my FT here?

    2FT 0.5itb
    Martinez
    Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
    Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish
    Kane (C), DCL, Maupay
    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Braithwaite)

    Thinking of
    A) Maupay > Bamford/ Antonio (if fit) (roll FT)
    B) Maupay, Braithwaite > Bamford/ Antonio, Kilman (2FT)

    Cheers!

    1. MallettMan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A. Bamford hasn't let me down so far. rest looks good

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Thanks mate. He’s looking consistent!

  8. Cech's Magic Hat
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Is Reece James nailed?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      No

  9. Tony Martial
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    what to do?

    1 FT 1.2 ITB

    Martinez
    Mitchell Targett Saiss
    Son Pulisic Grealish Salah
    Kane Maupay Aguero

    :Forster,Lamptey,Burke,Dunne.

    1. RAMZES666
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I would downgrade Aguero to Ings as he is injured, and upgrade possibly Dunne to Chilwell

  10. RAMZES666
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    My team looks good on paper but my OR is in the gutters.

    Martinez
    Castagne Chilwell Saiss
    Salah Son Pulisic Podence
    Kane DCL Wilson

    Steer Lamptey Taylor Anguissa

    Already did Digne->Chilwell this week. Planning to stick with Podence for 1 more week. Guess i should upgrade Podence to Zaha/Grealish?

    1. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Give Podence 1 more week

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Most of us are in the gutter.

  11. Squires FC
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    16 pts with maupay & lamptey as my only real hope of dodging a horror week is not a nice feeling. Kane and son also but doesnt mean much with EO. 3m OR currently.

    1. Tony Martial
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Exact same here

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Kane and Son scoring points for you is a good thing at that rank isn't it? LiveFPL now shows the EO at your rank as well as Top10k.

      1. Squires FC
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Ah great thanks for the info. I try to avoid checking live rank as quite enjoy the final check at the end of the gameweek.

    3. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      ouch, 16, i feel for you. and i bet your team doesn't even look that bad.

      1. Squires FC
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        How do i link my team again? Forget every year

        1. Squires FC
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Sorted

  12. MallettMan
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Had a good week so far, 68 points with Son(c) to come.
    I have 0.1 ITB and 2FT

    Martinez (ryan)
    TAA Kilman Justin (mitchell, taylor)
    Son(C) Zaha Mane Auba (Diangana)
    Wilson Bamford Ings

    Thinking of getting rid of TAA and Auba which frees up loads of funds, but who on earth should I get in ?
    I've put enough trust in Auba now, classic Arsenal fan

    1. LC1
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Great week mate!
      Auba definitely has to go.

      Grealish / Bruno / Sterling? (Aguero and Jesus both out).

      1. MallettMan
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Thanks mate!

        Yeah tempted by all 3 of those. Grealish such good value and Bruno for certified Pens lol

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Auba and Wilson out.
      Keep Trent for now as Pool defence cover.

      1. MallettMan
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        hm Wilson still racking up points, but he would be the first if I was to try and fit Kane in.
        Is Pool defence needed?

  13. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Who would you rather lose for a City asset after GW9:
    a) Son
    b) Kane

    1. MallettMan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      play it by ear, at the moment neither

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Depends on Aguero's fitness

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Massive TBD.

      None of the City players look good to invest in right now. None of them. But I'm tentatively planning to get KdB.

    4. Earwicker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Some of the teams who don't have European commitments have good runs around then. The main teams will be playing 2 games until Christmas, more rotation/injury concerns. I will be shipping both of them.

    5. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      i'd lose son over kane personally. City aren't really at the front of my thoughts right now. they have to be thrashing teams regularly to make them appealing because of the rotation and spreading of points.

  14. Big Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Is Kilman nailed now or do we not know? Thinking Saiss > Kilman and banking the 1.0 diff

    1. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      it is his spot to lose

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Difficult to give a definitive prediction but Wolves #1 Athletic journalist considers Kilman's spot to be safe for now.

            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            I tried to google it out. No success. Yet even if his spot is secured, I am uncertain whether that means Saiss losing his spot immediately. Marcal hasn't started yet and was that goal conceded his fault?

    3. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      With R James, Saiss and Lamptey I am considering something similar. Yet I'm not certain who drop. Chilwell is the only certain def I want to have since Robbo to Kilman would free almost 3 million which is tempting.

    4. DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Hope so. He's my transfer this week.

    5. Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      would like for him to remain at 4.1 until next GW.

    6. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I don’t think they’re competing against each other for a spot.
      The answer is it’s too early to tell.
      Feels like a knee jerk move whilst Saiss is starting imo

  15. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Hopefully Foden rewards me with a few hauls in the 5-0, 4-0 thrashings to come starting GW10.

    1. ivantys
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I might sell Foden and double up on KDB+Sterling from 10-22. KDB is slowly becoming a differential which I like.

    2. Abra Dubravka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      TAA/Jimi to Chilwell/Kane(c) for -4?
      Already have Robbo.

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

        Can backfire but yes imo

        1. Abra Dubravka
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          I know right. Tough call. Cheers

    3. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Have 2FTs, how would you use them?

      Thinking either Mitchell to Kilman - play him over Maupay, or Maupay to Bamford.

      Martinez
      Robo/Reguilon/Chilwell
      Salah/Son/Grealish/Hamez
      Kane/DCL/Maupay

      Martin/Lamptey/Mitchell/Stephens

      1. MallettMan
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Do Maupay to Bamford imo

    4. Tony Martial
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Who’s the best striker to have now for the long term?

      Have Kane already

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Ings set and forget

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          King Kohli speaks absolute sense.

      2. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Antonio should be a fine player to keep in the team for ages

      3. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The great and the good aren't going well. Seems to me that group think might be an issue, teams very similar.

    6. trinzoo
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Martinez / Caprile
      Chilwell / Semedo / Lamptey / Dallas / KWP
      Salah / Son / James / Grealish / Bissouma
      Kane / DCL / Maupay

      2FT / 1.9 ITB

      Awful GW, 17 pts so far. Any ideas what to do?

    7. cigan

      Lloris
      Trent Robbo Digne*
      Mane Son Grealish Foden
      DCL Wilson Adams
      (Mitchell, Lewis, Bissouma)

      Digne + Wilson > Kane + Kilman (2 FT, exact cash) the obvious move?
      Kinda sorry to see Wilson go, got me decent returns since day 1

      The oher option is just Digne > Chilwell + maybe finally getting a new keeper

      What are people's thoughts on using 2FTs next week and doing Jimi (whose fixtures turn) to Kane and Robbo to Coufal?

      1. Flair

        Feels a little late on the Kane train though everyone will (C) him against West Brom

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          and a good fixture against Brighton. I'm not exactly in the camp of too late. 10.9 is still very affordable for his output.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Next week or this week?

      2. Make America Greta Again

        Kanes fixtures are poor enough, I'd keep Jimi and get Harry another way.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          yes. either this way or no way, see below.
          thanks for the input

        I don't think selling Robertson is a good idea, can feel a 15 pointer coming. And I don't think a fixture turn hurts Jimi - they're better in big games. The whole idea of Jimenez is a fixture-proof keeper for the long-term 😉

        That said...I'm looking to get Kane in too...so if this is your only way...

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Just thoughts...
          but yes, I prefer Ings over Jimi and have midfield assets of Salah, KDB/Sterling, Son & Zaha who I all currently prefer over the 2nd 8.5 fwd.
          It comes down to the simple question of does Kane and Coufal pull in more points than Jimi and Robbo.
          Its a tough one, there's every chance I stick with what I've got. Next week will be a good indication as I am saving trade.

          1. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Fair enough. Tough in that case. To be honest, given there's no hit involved, I'd probably still go for it for the next two given Robbo has City away after.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              Leicester and Wolves in the next 3 fixtures after City also aren't the easiest.

        2. ivantys
            1 month, 4 days ago

            If you're getting Jimmy, don't watch the game or read any commentary. He's really poor in the game and scores out of nowhere.

      4. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        No attacking return this gw, and Kane/Son got more than 200% eo so wont help my gw.

        What would you do with the 1FT (0,0 itb)?
        I fear Saiss will get benched now after he got subbed.

        Might save and then get some WHU cover before gw 8.
        Who would you get out of Masuaku and Coufal? And who out of Bowen and Antonio (if fit)?

        Mane looks really fit, and Sterling not much so.... But in a few weeks time Citys fixtures will be really good.
        What about Kevin?

        Time to let one of the Everton boys go soon?

        Martinez
        Saiss Kilman Chillwell
        Salah Sterling Son Hames Barkley
        Kane DCL
        ...Steer Brester Justin Lamptey

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Not sure Everton boys should be let go with Fulham and Newcastle in the next 3

      5. Super Saints

        Deary me Leicester we're lucky

      6. matiakez

        Pulisic and Grealish have been frustrating wild card picks these last 2 weeks but still worth persisting with?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Not sure about Pulisic but keeping Grealish till BHA game is worth a shot. He is getting close

        2. ivantys
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Grealish can hold until GW15, Pulisic feels like a punt and a lottery over which of Havertz, Pulisic and Werner are gonna score.

          • No Professionals

            I didn't understand the clamour for pulisic with so many other players performing (seemed an unnecessary risk).

            I resisted all the advice to put him in, saying that i went with Grealish who has also done nothing.

            Also got both on WC in GW5 and didn’t get Rodriguez. Not gone well so far!

            But doesn’t feel a priority to take either out atm

        3. Mr. Mystic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Grealish or Zaha and why?

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            form says Zaha. Barring that mental 24 pointer, grealish has been fairly quiet.

          2. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Not much in it, I prefer Zaha

          3. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Grealish could have had a couple on Friday. And I prefer his fixtures long term. Also Zaha maybe off pens now

          4. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            both

        4. kime67
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Money seems to be no issue this season with the options we have, am i wrong? grealish is cheap son is cheap kane is cheap zaha is cheap salah is cheap dcl is cheap etc

          1. riot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Money isn't a problem until Trent/Robbo and City start scoring

          2. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            i think youre spot on there but it has been 6 gw already and they have done absolutely nothing and dont think that will change

        5. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Not seen many messages on Digne after that sending off yesterday.

          Out until 28th November with the ban by the looks of it.

          I was thinking Digne > Chilwell but are there any other options?

          1. riot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            I went Kilman because no Mitchell

          2. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            95% of the time the obvious move is the best, also its safe to do the same as everyone else. I could get robbo but not gonna do that

        6. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          33 points with Lamptey, Kane and Son to go, captained Salah.

          Martinez
          Roberston Saiss Lamptey
          Salah Son Grealish Foden
          Kane(c) Jimenez DCL

          Steer Mitchell Taylor Alzate
          0.9m ITB 1FT

          feels like a hold, there's nothing obvious to go at? Grealish to Zaha is tempting, but probably not this week. Jimenez will go to Antonio next week I think.

          1. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            keep grelish he was unlucky

          2. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Def hold

          3. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Thought you stole my team. Exactly the same players except Soucek v Alzate

            I have 2FT and looking to move Taylor to rotate with Lamptey and roll the other

            Foden is movable but can’t find anyone at that price right now
            Nothing urgent for you and wait for champs league

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 4 days ago

              yes it's feeling overly template now

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          What to do with Sterling?
          Could get Salah/Mane for a -4. Or go to KDB? Much prefer Liverpool

          1. kime67
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            sterling looks like a 8m mid atm

          2. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            KDB if you have nothing else to do otherwise hold.
