Best FPL replacements for Digne according to FFS Hall of Fame leader Fábio Borges

Fantasy Premier League has become a difficult game in the last few weeks, with managers at all levels of the overall rankings struggling with the unpredictable nature of the 2020/21 season.

I have also fallen foul of the frustration. After an excellent start to the season, my team massively underperformed in the last two Gameweeks. I fell from a place inside the top 10,000 to an overall rank of 177,000 in the span of just nine days, mostly due to a horrible Gameweek 6, in which I only got 35 points.

Even though I have some big decisions to make before Friday’s deadline, I am still eager and ready to prepare my team for Gameweek 7.

My team in Gameweek 6

Even though I never worry that much about rankings this early in the season, I am slightly concerned that my transfers haven’t been working at all. In fact, out of five transfers in so far, only Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) delivered an attacking return and everyone else either blanked, got injured like Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) or, in the case of Reece James (£5.0m), fell victim to Frank Lampard’s rotation.

Ahead of Gameweek 6, I decided to use some of my money in the bank to upgrade Michail Antonio (£6.3m) to Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) and, even though this decision made perfect sense at the time, it immediately cost me seven points.

Antonio scored an incredible goal with his only shot against Manchester City while Calvert-Lewin looked like a shadow of what we have seen in the first five matches of the season in Everton’s defeat Southampton. And, of course, a yellow card in the last minute was the cherry on top of a poor overall performance.

Injury and suspension dent Everton's FPL appeal and expose squad depth issues 1

I bought Calvert-Lewin in because he was a nice set-and-forget option until Gameweek 11 at the very least, thanks to a combination of great underlying statistics and a decent run of fixtures. 

Unfortunately, without Richarlison (£7.8m) in the side, Lucas Digne (£6.2m) suspended and James Rodríguez (£8.0m) perhaps still managing that injury which messed so many of us about last week, Calvert-Lewin’s appeal has already decreased a bit. However, I am sticking to the plan and hoping he still manages to deliver good value over the next five matches.

WHO IS THE BEST DIGNE REPLACEMENT?

As I was writing this, I caught confirmation that Digne’s three-match suspension has been reduced to one. It means he won’t play against Newcastle and will return in Gameweek 8, when Everton host Manchester United at Goodison Park.

Despite the reduction in his length of absence, I still don’t hold out much hope for Digne’s appeal over the next two Gameweeks. Unless something bad happens with my players in midweek matches, I think it is time to part ways with the French left-back.

Fixtures is the first thing i look into when I am comparing defensive options, focusing mainly on the next five or six matches and using longer term fixtures as a tie-break to separate two similar options. 

So, let’s see which teams have the easiest short term fixtures from a defensive perspective.

Teams with the best defensive schedule in the next five matches

From this list, I am going to exclude Crystal Palace (due to uncertainty about how they will shape up with players returning from injuries), West Bromwich (based on their poor showings in the early Gameweeks) and Southampton, since I already own Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) and Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m).

Here are the best options from each of the five remaining teams.

EVERTON – Michael Keane (£5.1m) – He has already scored twice this season and seems to be a decent value option if I am to keep trusting Everton’s defence. However, Keane is no Digne and his best fixtures are away from home, which I am not thrilled about. Having plenty of money in the bank, I am probably going with someone else.

CHELSEA – Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) – With great fixtures ahead, an impressive attacking threat and some set pieces in his arsenal, Chilwell seems to be the best Chelsea defender to have and, simultaneously, the logical replacement for Digne. I do worry he could be rotated with Marcos Alonso (£5.8m), Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) or even Reece James (£5.0m) once in a while though, especially with a hectic winter schedule ahead. Nevertheless, his upside seems too good to ignore and I think he is a great candidate, even if he might be rested by Lampard here and there.

LEICESTER – Timothy Castagne (£5.8m) – The Belgian full-back has impressed so far with four attacking returns in just six matches but he does seem a bit too expensive for someone who will have to play against Leeds, Wolves and Liverpool next. I think Castagne will be a great option from Gameweek 10 but right now it is a bit too soon to rely on him.

ASTON VILLA – Ezri Konsa (£4.7m) – After watching Villa’s shocking performance against Leeds, and with plenty of money to spend, Konsa is not someone I’m all that interested in right now but I think he could still provide decent value in a rotation with a West Ham defender, for example. Something I would probably consider if i was Wildcarding this week.

MANCHESTER CITY – Ruben Dias (£5.5m) – He seems to have nailed a spot at the heart of City’s defence but they will play against Liverpool and Tottenham in two of the next three fixtures so, just like Castagne, it doesn’t seem to be the right time to get Dias in.

OTHER PLANS

Werner fails to convince owners as Chilwell impresses for Chelsea

Despite poor performances in the last two Gameweeks, I still think my team looks pretty good and except for Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.8m), and possibly Timo Werner (£9.3m) if it seems he will lose his starting place, I don’t have plans to sell anyone else for now. 

I still have my Wildcard available, which is great but, unless an injury crisis comes up, I don’t think I will need to use it in the next few Gameweeks.

Not having Harry Kane (£10.9m) has been a bit stressful but it is hard to justify using a transfer to sell Werner with such a great schedule ahead of him. I don’t mind having the German international (plus £1.5m and one spare free transfer) over Kane, even if he still doesn’t look like the goal-scoring machine we saw in the Bundesliga.

Thanks for reading and good luck with your transfers for Gameweek 7.

        Thanks brother

      Nothing worth a hit, but for longer term Podence and your defense needs probably some work.

      1. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yeah planning on getting rid of Podence at some stage. I've had bigger issues to deal with but hopefully now I can look at fixing one or all of the following eventually - Podence/Lamptey/Taylor/Saiss

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

    I was just checking my stats... Last year my hit cost was 64 pts and total immediate pts gained from transfers was 284 or more, didn't find that screenshot. This season hit cost is now 20 pts and immediate pts gained -4. I have to admit that perhaps that tells something not too flattering about me as a player, but also that aggressive style hasn't worked during this season, at least so far.

    Last season players I took out didn't even once outscore players I brought in. This season has been a different story so far 🙁

    1. Garth Marenghi
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      There probably was a year where you came out ahead too

    2. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Your 16 hits each brought in 17+ more points per game, on average, than the players you dropped? I'm assuming "immediate" means in the subsequent game.
      I'm calling BS unless I misinterpreted something.

      1. MINUS FOUR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I don't think that's meant to be the calculation. Pretty sure he's saying that across the whole season all transfers in (including non-hits, so 38 free transfers plus 16 hits) gained a total of 284 points in the very next fixture. That sounds about right to me and in my best ever season the 'immediate points gained from transfers' was really high and by far the biggest differentiator between me and my rivals.

        So the suggestion is that despite taking 64 points in hits, overall the gains that season more than made up for it, and in fact probably held the key to his success. But this season it's not working as well, as admitted by the OP.

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

          Yes that's the way it's calculated, so it makes below 5.3 average. My dog woke me up and I couldn't get sleep, so the text written below about C pts can be forgotten 😉

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

        I brought many times my new C in for a hit though. TC Salah for dgw was one move for example and for gw2 the transfer was Pukki in for his hattie for example. If those C pts are calculated those moves alone had big net gain. And injured players don't get any pts.

        My OR was one pt away from top 10k and lowest with same amount of points (because of transfers), that could probably be checked somehow.

    Guys, apart from Chilwell, nor sure with either of my defenders.

    Have 2 FTs and 0.5ITB with no issues other than defence, please help not to burn FT, can bench the player I will transfer in. Only D1 is impossible, please advise on best options below. Thanks.

    A. Reguilon
    B. Lamptey
    C. PVA
    D. Mitchell

    1. Cresswell
    2. Coufal
    3. Targett

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Hmmm Reguilon might be nailed for a while after Davies blunder today.
      I'm not in love with Lamptey as much as others. Palace schedule maybe too good to dump C or D.
      So I guess B.

      I'd bring in Targett this week. Coufal next week.

    2. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'd go for Targett. Difficult on who to drop, ideally you'd want to see if Mitchell might get a crack at rb but it's unlikely, so him.

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

      Lamptey to Coufal looks like the safest option to burn the transfer. Targett not bad option either. PvA I would definitely keep now. Reguillon you probably can afford to even drop in price and monitor.

    4. Esalman
      • 11 Years

      B2

  4. Scratch
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Decisions to make this week.. apart from choosing between the 3 obvious captain options.

    McCarthy or Meslier
    and
    Justin or Kilman

    Leaning towards the former two options.

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I agree. Both are more nailed and teams in good form

  5. Sturridge Wars
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Salah or Rashford ? Starting from next week

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

      I will have both, but choosing Rashford means that you have at least one better player elsewhere. I have no idea which of them will score more tbh.

  6. seewhyaxe
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    hello DZ, pardon me as I still have 0 ideas what to do with my 2 FTs, 5.6m itb.

    Wildcard used.

    Martínez (Steer)
    Robertson, Saïss, Lamptey, (James) (Mitchell)
    Grealish, Salah, Podence, Son (Burke)
    Maupay, Jiménez, Calvert-Lewin

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    1. Dirty Harry
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      upgrade Podence

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Thanks to whom though. I'd want a City/Utd asset but their fixtures are only turning in a couple of weeks.

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Pulisic finally showing some form, good fixtures and was rested till 70 mins midweek, and I think got Hattie at Burnley last year.

          1. seewhyaxe
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            thanks! good shout

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

      I'd prefer Rashford. Pulisic may not even start this week. And I would start James over Lamptey.

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

        Sorry, Pulisic will likely start, I was thinking about Werner. Time to fall asleep.

    3. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Maupay to Kane?

      If you don’t want Kane, maybe bring in Coufal for James/Lamptey (would much rather start James this week!) ahead of WHU fixture swing and to avoid burning the FT

  7. Tambling5
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Hi everyone in the DZ
    Team is
    McCarthy (4.0)
    Robbo James (KWP, Konsa,Taylor)
    Salah, Son, Zaha,Havertz, (Soucek)
    Kane, DCL, Watkins
    1FT 0.2 itb All Chips still intact Rank. 250K
    A) Shall I save trans or make a change - James nailed this week after rested midweek
    B) If no change which defender should play out of bracketed three
    Not averse to a -4 If constructive change for future - intend to hang on to wildcard. Thanks for any thoughts

    1. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Any views please?

      1. Magpies4ever
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Definitely save the ft, team looks good, I’d play konsa for sure as wouldn’t want a saints double up

        1. Tambling5

  8. The Red Devil

    Best 4.5 def? Was considering ayling, but isn't he playing at CB now? Any other options?

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Dallas

    2. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Coufal if you can wait to start him/bring him in until next week

  9. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Salah or Son for captain? Brighton already conceed 12 goals while West ham only 8 up to GW 6, guess Son edge it , any suggestions?

    1. De Gea is GOAT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Im currently between Son and Kane so i would say Son. (Also have Salah)

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Think salah might get double digit this week. See the pattern below

        Gw 1 20
        Gw 2 3
        Gw 3 5
        Gw 4 13
        Gw 5 7
        Gw 6 2
        Gw 7 time for double digit.

    2. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      When in doubt Salah(C) for me.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I am on Salah

    3. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      It's a real three way toss up. I went wrong with Salah last week, but tempted to stick as would be bad psychologically if switched and he did well. I'd be hokey-cokeying all season!

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        yes he might haul this week.

    4. Magpies4ever
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I’m probably going salah but wouldn’t be surprised if son does better

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I think Salah and Son will haul this week, Salah edge for me because of Penalty.

    5. Nate01
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Ive got for rashford

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        All the best.

    6. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Been on Salah all week but i'm reconsidering. West Ham are a very confident team right now so it shouldn't be an easy game for Liverpool. Leaning towards Kane over Son, he has a good record vs Brighton. Also Brighton have played, what i'd consider 3 "tough" games this season and have shipped 3, 3 and 4 goals vs Chelsea, Man U and Everton

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Antonio loss might be a blow to their confidence

        1. Scratch
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Very important player for them definitely. Might affect their gameplan, Antonio does a lot, not least relieving pressure but I wouldn't say his absence knocks their confidence.

      2. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Cheers

  10. Esalman
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Decision time, some help will be appreciated:
    A. Maitland-Niles to Lamptey for free
    B. Reguilon+Brewster to Lamptey+Wilson (-4)
    C. Maitland-Niles+Brewster to Struijk+Wilson (-4)

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Why Wilson? Go for bamford

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Don't really like his fixtures.

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Monitor West ham i would say , no need to take hit.

    2. Lukaku_time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 1 day ago

      If brewster is a starter in your team than c if not than a

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        He's not.. thanks.

    3. Magpies4ever
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Don’t like Wilson so probably A

  11. Lukaku_time
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 1 day ago

    A)podence>harrison
    B)podence+sterling>rashford+grealish/zaha
    C)keep podence

    Which one would you go for (i would love to keep sterling but option b is just to gain funds for a bigger upgrade if needed

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      C

    2. Magpies4ever
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I’d keep podence tbh, looks very dangerous when hes on, will surely return soon

  12. Magpies4ever
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    This for a -4 hit? Is zouma nailed btw?
    Aguero + Semedo > Kane + zouma (or a better 5.1M or less defender you prefer)

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Ageuro to Kane only?

      1. Magpies4ever
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Don’t have the funds, only person I can realistically downgrade is semedo, any other defenders under 5.1 you’d prefer?

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Coufal?

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

          Creswell also

    2. Tambling5
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Zouma prob nailed this week as they need a big defender against Wood, and Silva rested midweek so will presumably play. Rudiger's conciliation with Lamps means he is a live alternative if any niggly physical problem tho.

      1. Magpies4ever
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Ahh that’s not great, anyone you’d prefer for 5.1 or less

    Play Soucek (liv) or Dallas (LEI)?

      Dallas

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Probably Soucek although I wouldn't expect anything from either

      Dallas

    Need to get rid of Harvey Barnes and Wood. Will likely wc in a couple of gws.

    A. Barnes to Grealish and Wood to Antonio next week
    B. Wood to Bamford and Barnes to Ziyech next week
    C. Something else. Any good punts for next 2 gws?

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der

      I like B. Ziyech next week if starting could be golden

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Cheers! I'm expecting that he will and he'll be a great differential. Also allows me to get rid of Wood this gw.

        1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Yeah and bamford is getting harder to ignore.

          I might do Barkley to Ziyech next GW, based on their performance this week

          Keep an eye on Ziyech Champs League minutes midweek...Frank has implied he will ease him in slowly as midweek was his first start since March.

    2. Chelsea91

      Antonio injured out for a month

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Hadn't heard about that. Cheers!

      Rashford scored a fast hattie in CL and will cost 9.6 within 24 hours. He is in form and has the fixtures.

      There is "better fpl" and another, it's mentioned here. Should work on Chrome, but nothing happens on my android 🙁 Haven't checked my laptop yet.

    2. Pipermaru

      FPL Tools, it's a Chrome add-on, I'm using it as well, very handy.

        Shout out to them. Back in 15-16 I made a similar tool before the FPL site redesign. Don't need to make one anymore because of FPL tools.

    Do you guys fancy a Liverpool CS with Antonio out?

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yes

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Yep. As TAA owner from the start, I'm really hopeful

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Absolutely

    4. Tambling5

      It's the hope that kills us!?!

    5. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years

      Can expect but little hope. Westham Can easily past a goal from set pieces.

    How do you get the numbers to come up below each player's name?

      Zero

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der

      Nada

  21. Dthinger
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Start one of:
    Brewster
    Atkins
    Lascelles
    Bissouma?

    Or sell Ayling for Targett and start him?

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      *Atkins is Ayling

      1. tallboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        *Atkins is Ayling

        Not well? 🙂

    2. PogBruno

      Al

        Thanks

      2. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Wait-do you mean Brewster because it’s the first option? Or Ayling whose name starts with A?

    Reckon Chilwell or James to start?

    Spurs have not kept a lot of CS.

    Do you think Brighton would score against them, a random Maupay haul might be a huge bonus to anyone starting him.

    1. Pavsboot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I've weirdly got a feeling. Don't really trust Spurs defence + Brighton seeming to play better against the top sides makes me feel alright about their chances.

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

        same here. With this benching headache, I have a choice between Maupay, Dallas and PVA. Leaning towards Maupay as of now. Plus I worry that chilly might not start, but that's just not going to happen lol

        1. Pavsboot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Ouch. Maupay vs PVA seems tough. Both could easily just get you 2 points or 10.

    2. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Brighton always seems to play very good against most of the top sides especially spurs, so there is a chance maupay can nick a goal.

    Best Midfielder for this week - 7.1M to spend
    a) Maddison
    b) Ward-Prowse
    c) Klich
    d) Another

  26. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Start

    A) Trossard(tot)
    B) Dallas(LEI)

    ???
    please help

    1. Denis Tueart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    2. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      A) Trossard may return, Spurs def is poor, they'll concede mostly

      thanks both

    It's not a cert that Haller will play if Antonio is out. Yarmelenko fits the system and has played there before. Moyes really doesn't rate Haller

    1. Urchin
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      That's a brilliant username, ROFLing

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Agree
      Yarma loses ball very cheaply though. Could cause damage vs Pool to WHU

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Do we know how long Antonio is expected to be out for yet?

      1. pablo discobar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        4 - 6 weeks. Talk sport say 4, mail says 6.

    So Castagne injury has got me looking at moves
    How does this sound
    Castagne and Davis
    To 3.9 folder and Bamford
    For -4

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Nothing ITB so .1 short to straight swap to Chilwell

    2. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I will not trade davis out with 4.3 now & have my complete focus on 3-5-2 till the season end.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        I am on a 451 this would get me to 352

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Castagne -> Chilwell/Dias IMO

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        .1 short on Chilwell for straight swap. Diaz I don’t mind but maybe better in a week or 2
        And I would be worried about another brutal week in GW8 like GW6 was if I go into pool V city with 5 players from those 2

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Waiting on Dias makes sense though I'd back City to keep a CS against any team with Laporte back.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Why not bring in Brewster and a decent defender so that you get the chance of minutes from both ?

  29. WE GO FOR IT
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Best Podence replacement?

    A. Zaha
    B. Grealish
    C. Havertz
    D. Pulisic
    E. Anyone else up to 8.5m

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'd go for D

    2. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Grealish atm but Puli is you fancy a punt

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Cheers both!
