Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures?

We assess the Premier League clubs with the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks in our regular frisk of the fixture list.

Although our primary focus will be on a six-Gameweek lookahead in this article, we will scrutinise the longer-term prospects where relevant.

We’re still waiting for the top flight of English football to settle down to some extent, with only two of the traditional “big six” clubs currently to be found above 10th place.

Perhaps what we perceive to be normality won’t resume and upstarts like Everton, Leeds United and Aston Villa are here to stay at the top end of the table.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that our Season Ticker, which is the primary source for this piece, has already had a tweak in terms of fixture difficulty rating: the table-topping Toffees, for example, have crossed over to the scarlet end of the colour spectrum.

There have been functionality improvements to the ticker on our home page, too, with ‘drag and drop’ returning and the ability to remove a Gameweek added.

THE STRONG

CRYSTAL PALACE

Next six: wol |LEE | bur | NEW | wba | TOT

Crystal Palace remain top of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks, although their favourable run is bookended by tricky tests against a defensively solid Wolverhampton Wanderers and high-flying Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gameweek 8 visit of Leeds United is no straightforward prospect either, given the ease with which Marcelo Bielsa’s side brushed aside the previously unbeaten Aston Villa last Friday.

It’s the three fixtures that fall immediately after the international break that catch the eye most as Burnley, Newcastle and West Bromwich Albion all currently lie 14th or below in the embryonic Premier League table.

Wolves’ relative struggles in front of goal are also worth considering: four of the Eagles’ five Gameweek 7-11 opponents, including Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, are in the bottom half of the table for goals scored.

The Gameweek 5 and 6 fixtures were frustrating from a defensive perspective, with 90th-minute strikes, both from outside the box, depriving the Eagles of clean sheets.

Roy Hodgson’s troops were only a slice of luck away from shut-outs in both cases and, given their defence-first reputation, par for the next five Gameweeks would surely be at least two clean sheets.

EVERTON

Next six: new | MUN | ful | LEE | bur | CHE

As is the case with Palace, Everton’s schedule take a bit of a nosedive from Gameweek 12 onwards.

Not that our traditional view of what constitutes a tricky fixture seems to hold true at present, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) already delivering the goods against both Spurs and Liverpool.

If we are to consider games that are at least appealing on paper, then the Toffees’ next three away matches are among the best.

Newcastle, Fulham and Burnley have looked like three of the most anaemic attacks in the Premier League this season and rank in the bottom six for big chances created.

That trio of clubs only have two clean sheets between them, although the Clarets have begun to look more like their old mean selves since the international break and made life tough for Spurs on Monday.

ASTON VILLA

Next six: SOU | ars | BHA | whu | NEW | wol

Aston Villa’s 100% record came to a crashing end against Leeds United last Friday, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side delivering a reality check to the Villans.

Villa’s upcoming run of games, particularly at home, presents them with a decent opportunity to regain their momentum, however.

Dean Smith’s side sit top of our Season Ticker from now until Boxing Day, with Southampton, Brighton, Newcastle, Burnley and Crystal Palace up next for the Villans on their own turf and West Brom awaiting in Gameweek 15.

While some of those sides are performing well in the opening weeks of the campaign, that still constitutes a welcoming sequence of games in most people’s eyes.

Arsenal, West Ham and Wolves will be tough nuts to crack for Jack Grealish (£7.3m) and co on the road, however, with that trio of clubs among the more defensively secure sides in the division this season.

Villa’s fixtures rotate fairly well with those of both Newcastle and West Ham up until Christmas, should any FPL manager be considering a way to navigate those trickier tests for Smith’s troops.

WEST HAM UNITED

Next six: liv | FUL | shu| AVL | MUN | lee

Given that Frisking the Fixtures is a fortnightly series, West Ham United’s favourable run will have already commenced by the time we take a look over the schedule again during the international break.

The Hammers sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 8-20, with some particularly juicy games in east London to come against Fulham, Villa, Palace, Brighton, West Brom and Burnley over the next three months.

A trip to Anfield is the last obstacle before the November swing but the Reds are struggling for numbers at the back and this might be a decent time to face the reigning champions, who have conceded a joint-league-worst 14 goals this season.

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) has already bagged goals against Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City in 2020/21, so the calibre of opposition seems to matter little to the in-form forward – although his hamstrings might have a say in his availability.

David Moyes’ side have been excellent since a Gameweek 2 switch to a wing-back system but it remains to be seen how they fare against sides who are more content to let the Hammers play on the front foot, which might be the case in Gameweeks 8 and 9.

CHELSEA

Next six: bur |SHU | new | TOT | LEE | eve

Were we to focus solely on the next three Gameweeks, then Chelsea would top the pile on our Season Ticker.

Two winless clubs in the relegation zone and an unconvincing Newcastle side are to come before things turn sour, with Chelsea facing none of the current bottom five between Gameweeks 10-18.

The Clarets and the Blades are the two worst attacks in the Premier League so far this season, with each scoring just three goals apiece.

Steve Bruce’s side have also looked toothless going forward, with no side having had fewer shots on target.

Four clean sheets in the last five matches in all competitions has hinted at a bit of a sea change for Chelsea, with new recruits Thiago Silva (£5.5m), Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) and Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) having the desired effect on a previously troubled defence.

At the other end, the Blues are now finally at full strength after an injury-interrupted start to 2020/21 and we’ll surely see a return to a more attacking set-up at Turf Moor on Saturday after the safety-first approach at Old Trafford in Gameweek 6.

ALSO CONSIDER

West Bromwich Albion (ful | TOT | mun | SHU | CRY | new), like so many clubs featured in this piece, have a mixed bag of games, with the double-header against Spurs and Manchester United the obvious negative.

Their other four opponents in the next six Gameweeks are all in the bottom half for goals scored, however, with Fulham and Sheffield United the only two top-tier sides yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet this season.

The Baggies have looked a lot more solid (against admittedly limited attacks) in the last two Gameweeks and their fixtures rotate very well with West Ham’s up until Christmas, for those nostalgic managers finding the allure of a romantic Branislav Ivanovic (£4.5m) pick hard to resist.

Top-of-the-table Everton, an improving Southampton and a Chelsea side finally nearing full strength are next up for Newcastle United (EVE | sou | CHE | cry | avl | WBA), an awkward trio of matches that undermines their lofty position in our Season Ticker.

Look beyond that though and there are some more appealing fixtures for the Magpies’ backline, with Palace, West Brom and Fulham (who Steve Bruce’s side face in Gameweek 14) hardly setting the world alight with their attacking play so far in 2020/21.

Those three teams are, as it happens, also in the bottom three for expected goals conceded, too.

Looking ahead to our next piece over the November international break, expect to see Manchester City (shu | LIV | tot | BUR | FUL | mun) feature more prominently as we gear up for their mouth-watering fixture swing in Gameweek 10.

THE WEAK

Fulham 

Sharp rescues blunt Blades as Mitrovic suffers nightmare outing

Next six: WBA | whu | EVE | lei | mci | LIV

A Gameweek 7 clash with fellow Premier League new boys West Bromwich Albion will likely represent the last hurrah for Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.8m) in many Fantasy teams, for those managers who didn’t sell him long ago.

Fulham’s schedule is appalling from next week onwards, with four clubs scoring at a rate of two+ goals per game to come in Gameweeks 8-12 – the one exception being Manchester City, who will surely be back to their destructive best sooner rather than later.

Frankly, little more needs to be written on the matter. Some clubs, like West Ham, have been able to ride out a tough fixture run but the Cottagers, bottom of the table, winless and without a clean sheet despite a relatively favourable opening run of games, have “avoid” written all over them in the medium term at the very least.

BURNLEY

Pieters at right-back as Burnley reveal Bardsley's self-isolation

Next six: CHE | bha | CRY | mci | EVE | ars

While Fulham won’t be giving their upcoming opponents any nightmares, a streetwise Burnley side may be a tougher prospect.

The Clarets’ forthcoming fixture run, which includes meetings with attack-minded sides such as Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton, is enough to deter fresh investment in the likes of Nick Pope (£5.5m), despite a decent-looking double-header either side of the international break.

Sean Dyche’s side could still have a big say in FPL matters, however, with their defence starting to look more like their old selves since the October international break.

We indeed saw a free-scoring Spurs side struggle to break down their opponents at Turf Moor in Gameweek 6 and, over the course of the season, no Premier League side has allowed fewer big chances than Pope and co.

ALSO CONSIDER

Is a sea of red on the Season Ticker enough to put managers off Leeds United (LEI | cry | ARS | eve | che | WHU)?

All of the Whites’ next six opponents are currently ranked 12th or above, with Leicester, Arsenal and West Ham among the three best sides in the division from a defensive perspective.

But then that was also true of Aston Villa before Patrick Bamford (£5.9m) butchered Dean Smith’s side in the Midlands, with Marcelo Bielsa’s boys having previously gone toe to toe with last season’s top two and taken points off Manchester City.

Sheffield United (MCI | che | WHU | wba | LEI | sou) have neither form nor fixtures on their side over the next five Gameweeks (and possibly beyond), with the exception of the trip to West Brom in November.

So defensively solid in 2019/20, the Blades have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and face tough upcoming tests: Chelsea, West Ham and Leicester have all scored two goals per match or more, while Manchester City are long overdue a big win.

Finally, a cautionary word on two teams who will feature more prominently in this piece for all the wrong reasons when we revisit the fixture list over the international break.

The short-term outlook is positive for Wolverhampton Wanderers (CRY | lei | SOU | ars | liv | AVL) and Tottenham Hotspur (BHA | wba | MCI | che | ARS | cry), with the former enjoying a winnable next two matches at Molineux and the latter having perhaps the best pair of Gameweek 7/8 fixtures.

Beyond that, though, are more daunting schedules, with both sides facing six of last season’s top eight from Gameweeks 9-16 – that truly will be a test of form versus fixtures for the likes of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m).

      thknk werner will score this week so keep. THink DCL will score too but no point using a transfer.

    Holy moly, Rashford looks like he might rise. With exact cash for B, which is the best move? The others I can sleep on

    A) TAA, Mitro -> Coufal, Kane
    B) TAA, Podence -> Chilwell, Rashford
    C) Podence -> Grealish

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 6 Years

      B

    2. baps hunter

      Yes it looks that way. Both A and B look like viable options, but depends on your longer time plan. If you do A, can you get Rashford next week for -4?

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

          Then probably B as longer term option. It may hurt you this week though, but look at the fixtures. You are more likely to want in form Rashford imo.

        2. baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          And Chilwell will probably outscore Coufal this week.

    3. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      B does look like a better option but I feel both chilwell and rash have a possibility of rotation. I would go with A

      That's a tough one as you don't even have any money to wring out of the subs for the future..
      As you have DCL, how about Hames to Zaha? Or Grealish?
      The cash would help fix Branthwaite later.

      n't even have any mon

    2. baps hunter

      You could sell Lamptey for Kilman if that gives you .1?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Really tough one, I'm not a fan of Maupay so I would think about alternatives. I would replace him with Antonio so that the FT isn't wasted and start Dallas of Antonio isn't fit this weekend

      1. HaffNanner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 7 hours ago

        This is a good shout as I was toying with starting Dallas anyway. Just have to monitor it and make sure Antonio isn't out for 6 weeks first. Thanks

    3. jia you jia you

      Maupay is a Championship striker at best!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        I know. He's been very disappointing since I got him in

  10. Tmel

    Hold Podence for one more week vs CRY? Or shift to Barkley?

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Sell him mate. I’d prefer Barkley

    2. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      I'd hold, Villa have a tough game against SOU and Podence was Wolves best player last game IMO. I really can't understand my Nuno chooses Podence as the man to sub off early. I own and am keeping this week.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        It's probably not -just- this, but there is the fact that Neto is left-footed whilst both Podence & Traore are right-footed.

  11. Yank Revolution
    • 9 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    Zaha or James Rodriguez? (Have DCL)

    1. FPL_WILDCARD

      Zaha

    2. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      James will score more in my opinion

  12. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years

    Downgraded TAA to Chilwell in order to do Rash/Bruno before the hatrick 😉

    United boys coming to shake up the template

    1. Yank Revolution

      Let's hope so Sir Alex

      25 days, 17 hours ago

      tasty! you have both united mids? or pick one of them?

      I am strongly considering taking Hamez out for him, as it feels like Everton have lost a bit of their spark for now with Digne and Richarlison out, plus all these niggles Hamez got.

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        I think it’s a good time to do it. I’ll be selling James for Rashford or Bruno. Just not sure which one yet..

        1. Willmissudimitrypayet
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 16 hours ago

          would have to be rashford, right?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 16 hours ago

            Not necessarily. Bruno is ALWAYS involved. But does cost 1 million more

            1. baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              25 days, 16 hours ago

              With Martial back and linking with Rashford I fear that Bruno's goal involvement may drop. And since I don't know which one will do better, I am getting Rashford next week.

      2. baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Hames out is a bit tricky though. He is a doubt for next fixture, but he should be fine with his injuries after itb and they plum fixture against Ful. Leeds and Burnley after that.

    3. Seanigula
      • 11 Years

      I think they can move into the Top 14 this weekend with a little luck

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Your anti united agenda is hilarious. Always coming with something negative lol

        Hated adored, never ignored

        1. Seanigula
          • 11 Years
          25 days, 16 hours ago

          That was a factual statement...they have shown no form in the league thus far...may drop more points to Arsenal...there has been nothing positive from a FPL standpoint other than Bruno’s penalties. Is anything I said not true?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            25 days, 16 hours ago

      United playing a very defensive strategy in the EPL not the same system as tonight in CL.
      When it turns I'll buy United players. Arsenal will be another tight game.

      1. The Mandalorian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Also Ole was battered by Everton last season so he will be cautious. Lots of reports that his job is under threat.

      2. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Yeah I’m not sure why Ole is doing it. Our best performances have been in the champs when we haven’t played a 4231. Not a coincidence imo, hopefully we go for it

        lol one game is a very defensive strategy? We played overly cautious against Chelsea because we got absolutely smashed by Spurs and should've been hammered by Brighton.

          He played the same system against Newcastle and Chelsea, two CDMs. They only smashed toon after the subs were made.

            I do think the Arsenal game will be tight though but their games against the other big teams usually are.

              Arteta’s bus is a disgrace. I heard they’re calling him the River Island Tony Pulis

                I understand him wanting to tighten things up after the calamitous defending before he arrived but they're now struggling to create anything, I have a strong dislike for them this season anyway after they made all those staff redundant just before signing Willian.

          True.

    Digne and Mahrez -> Chilwell and Rashford for -4?

    1. Willmissudimitrypayet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      hell yeah

    2. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Digne to Chilwell looks good but id hold Mahrez for the SHU game.

  14. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    Martinez 4.0
    Casta saiss lamptey Dallas Mitchell
    Salah son Hamez Grealish Bissouma
    Kane DCL Jimmy

    O itb
    2 FTs

    Mitchell is looking more and more nailed so would just keep him.

    Maybe Casta to someone to setup for later gws? AVL or everton or westham or chelsea defender?

    Thoughts?

  15. tbhogal
    • 11 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    which option is best guys ?

    A) Grealish > Rashford
    B) Brewster > Bamford
    C) Brewster > Adams

    Martinez (steer)
    Saiss, Robbo, Chilwell (lamptey, Mitchell)
    Podence, Foden, Son, Salah, Grealish
    DCL, Kane (Brewster)..

    1. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      A imo

      1. baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Don't like the idea of having 5.5 bench fodder

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

      B

  16. Willmissudimitrypayet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    Is it wort taking out Hamez and Robbo for Creswell and Rashford?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Probably not.

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I like it but can go either way

      1. Willmissudimitrypayet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        it can go either way... it doesn't feel quite right, but west ham are looking great defensively compared to Liverpool and Cresswell are racking up chances created.

    3. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Exact moves I'm considering. Already done Watkins to Bamford so may wait a wk to do it for free.

  17. TheSteel

    What are Greenwood’s starting prospects? Looking to replace Podence

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Lots of competition and dependant on the formation Ole goes with.

      4231 - the RW spot is his.
      442 diamond/343 - Dont he starts over Martial or Rashford

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      wouldn't bank on him starting

  18. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    Sterling + Hames + Kane to Rashford + Bruno + Martial (-8) done but wish we could have 4 players from the same team!

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Wow that's a brave move!

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        it might be tongue in cheek 😉

        1. Traction Engine Foot
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 16 hours ago

          Aha, it's been a long day...

    2. LSK
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Overkill imo. Take another -4 to swap one back.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        done, cheers

  19. Traction Engine Foot
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    Would you start Justin or Mitchell this week? Mitchell apparently has a 1% better chance of a clean sheet (if he starts of course)...

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      justin purely due to attacking potential

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Mitchell, as Wolves aren't that good in attack at the moment

    3. pitstop1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Justin

    4. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I’d go Justin mate got the same two players

    5. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years

      Cheers all.

  20. Make United Great Again

    Pulisic owners. Goal & assist tonight. Let’s hope he can replicate that in the league!

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      He is gonna start firing i feel.

  21. LSK
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    Need to lose Trossard. Who is the best option?
    A) Rashford
    B) Zaha
    C) Any Chelsea mid

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Pulisic or Rashford over Zaha (he's nailed on to go on a run of blanks)

      1. LSK
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Cheers, yeah don’t fancy Zaha tbh but thought I’d include him as he’s doing well

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      thats a hard one. Think Rash/ Pulisic will have the highest points if you look at the next 5-6 fixtures but then they cost more than Zaha so its about using that money somewhere else and making more points. So a hard call. I was no help lol

      1. LSK
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Cheers, appreciate it. Looks like it’s between Pulisic and Rashford. Both explosive on their day.

    Likely that R. James starts this weekend?

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      i think so

    2. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I wanna bring him in too but who knows which week he will start and which he won't.

    3. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm trying to decide if I can hold off transferring him for another week.

      1. FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        oh in that case I would keep

  23. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    Guys I have 2 FTs and no idea what to do. Should I take out Casta for a chelsea/west ham defender?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I'd probably swap him for Chilwell if nothing else is pressing.

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Yeah, no Kepa apparently makes a huge difference. What took them so long?

    2. Make United Great Again

      He needs to start

  25. Kloppcorn

    Werner Chelsea’s second pen taker, Possibly first after another Jorginho miss tonight

  26. Qaiss
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    It’s always nice to see man united win the odd game to further cement Solsjoker at the helm for a while. If they had Pochettino in charge, I think they would be on the verge of challenging again. With Ole, will never happen.

    1. Willmissudimitrypayet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      and why do you say that?

      1. Qaiss
        • 4 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        They have hardly improved and he’s been there for 2 years, while spending a ton of money as well. Only a few weeks ago all of their fans wanted him out.

  27. Reyson
    • 3 Years

    NEEd help! Capt salah or kane ?

    And start asm or dcl?

    1. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I’m choosing between Kane and salah too

      1. Reyson
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Actually so scared with capt salah...

        1. Kloppcorn
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          25 days, 16 hours ago

          If you get it wrong you get it wrong for me choosing between them two this gw is a flip of a coin

    2. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Being a Liverpool fan I will probs go salah, plus watching Liverpool with salah captain if he does well is great to watch

    3. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I’d start DCL

    4. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Def start DCL

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Kane for me

  28. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    Meslier
    TAA Coady Lamptey
    Salah Fernandes Jorginho Mahrez
    DCL Maupay Kane

    Forster Konsa Stephens Douglas

    2 FT FT, 0.0 itb

    What to do here ?

    Maupay >> Bamford ? Anything else ?

    Thanks all.

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      Sounds good. Start Konsa over Lamptey?

      I have 2ft and looking at Coufal this week for Taylor
      If you have McCarthy in goal then kwp out makes sense
