Cancelo stars for City as Sheff Utd’s weak right-side bodes well for Chelsea

Sheff Utd 0-1 Man City

  • Goals: Kyle Walker (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m)
  • Bonus points: Walker x3, João Cancelo x2 (£5.4m), Aymeric Laporte x1 (£6.0m)

CANCELO CULTURE

João Cancelo (£5.4m) is fast-becoming the key Manchester City defender ahead of their fixture swing in Gameweek 10 as he starred in a 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

While Kyle Walker (£6.0m) emerged with a 15-point haul, thanks to his spectacular first-half goal, it was Pep Guardiola’s left-back who suggested more sustainable output.

Since making his first Premier League start at that position in Gameweek 5, Cancelo is yet to blank, averaging seven points per game.

In that time, the Portuguese international has collected two clean sheets and, even though he has only managed to provide one assist, that has not been for lack of trying.

In the first half alone against the Blades, Cancelo created more chances than any Manchester City defender in a Premier League match since February 2012. That impressive tally was a big reason why he was able to secure two bonus points despite registering no attacking returns.

DEFENSIVE CONSISTENCY

However, Fantasy managers may still want to hold off before going all-in on Cancelo or anyone from the Manchester City defence.

They face Liverpool (home) and Spurs (away) in the next two Gameweeks, two sides that are likely to be hard to contain.

Gameweek 10 looks like the time swoop for Cancelo, with home matches against Burnley, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion between then and Gameweek 13.

Waiting until then may also help Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) and Ruben Dias (£5.5m) settle into together as a centre-back duo.

The trip to Sheffield United was only the second time this season that Guardiola has been able to start the two players but there is plenty of promise about having the two of them together.

2019/20 was a sub-standard year for the Citizens in terms of defensive returns, and their manager has already highlighted that consistency at centre-back will make a big difference this season.

“(Laporte + Dias) are both playing really well. They are guys to give us consistency. We struggle a lot last year to have two central defenders (every week). This year, we will need everyone because these amount of games it is impossible to play both every game.” – Pep Guardiola

FRIGHT RIGHT

Cancelo and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) were afforded a considerable amount of freedom on Saturday, as they made the most of Sheffield United’s weak right flank.

Between Gameweeks 1 and 6, the Blades conceded more chances down their side of the pitch than any other team in the Premier League and that trend continued at Bramall Lane.

As you can see from the match data breakdown, there was an uneven spread of opportunities given up by Chris Wilder’s men. They allowed 10 chances, of which 70% were constructed on the right-hand side.

While Sheffield United’s problems here may have helped Cancelo’s numbers, they bare more Fantasy relevance when examining the Gameweek 8 fixtures.

The Blades travel to Chelsea next weekend and, if Wilder has done little to shore up George Baldock‘s (£5.3m) side of the pitch by that point, we could see Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) and Timo Werner (£9.3m) take advantage.

FRONT AND CENTRE

Ferran Torres (£6.9m) can consider himself unfortunate not to have left Bramall Lane without some attacking returns.

Having netted as a centre-forward in the Champions League midweek, Manchester City’s number 21 was given a chance to reprise that role in Gameweek 7.

“It’s a new position for him but he did it well (against Marseilles). We have other people in the middle but the striker position is the most difficult one. He did really well and we try again.” – Pep Guardiola

Torres was the chief beneficiary of Cancelo’s marauding runs and incessant chance creation, as he had three golden chances to score during the game, Aaron Ramsdale (£4.9m) proving equal to him each time.

However, whether the £6.9m midfielder can offer long-term appeal as an out-of-position asset remains to be seen, with Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) closing in on a return to fitness.

That should, hopefully, mean an end to Sterling having to deputise up-front as well. He was tasked with that role in the final 10 minutes of Gameweek 7 as Phil Foden (£6.6m) came on for Torres.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Stevens, Egan, Basham; Lowe (McGoldrick 81′), Osborn (Lundstram 55′), Ampadu (Norwood 65′), Berge, Baldock; Brewster, McBurnie.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; Rodrigo, De Bruyne, B Silva; Sterling, Torres (Foden 81′), Mahrez (Gündogan 85′).

    Zouma has 3 PL goals for Chelsea? Has he been totally lucky or is he genuinely getting into good positions?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I wonder this actually, the new Shane Duffy lol

      1. Babit1967

        11 months, 22 days ago

        Hopefully not, Duffy is rank for my team right now lol

    2. FF Dirtbag

      Good at corners.

    3. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Hes always been great he is coming into his own now

    4. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I like the look of him. Actually considering doubling up with Chilwell for next few

    5. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      He's genuinely going to score 15 goals this season

    6. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      His header today was no fluke for sure!

  2. Babit1967
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Will leave my decision till Friday but any obvious moves with 2 ft

    Martinez

    James Robbo Saiss Lanptey Mitchell

    Salah Sterling Son JRod Podence

    Jimmy DCL Brewster

    0 itb

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Make sure it is before 4 on Friday! Very early deadline

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Downgrading Saiss or JRod to find Jimenez to Werner I’d be looking at if you fancy a little differential

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        *fund

      2. Babit1967
        • 5 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah decent enough mate, I still like Werner as a pick

    3. Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Saiss to Zouma for free and save the other ft? Captain Sterling vs pool

  3. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    But everyone said Chilwell was worth the extra 0.8 over Zouma

    1. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I have both

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I’m looking at moving to both!

      1. clodhopper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Chillwel had an assist almost

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          What do you reckon to my dilemma below? Considering Puli, Robbo > Bruno, Zouma (2FT)

    3. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Still think he is.

  4. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Going for third time/page lucky! Unsure what to do here. At least I have 2FT but often it makes it harder because you feel more pressure to make moves!

    2FT 1.1itb
    Martinez
    Robbo*, Chilwell, Dallas
    Salah, Son, Pulisic*, Grealish
    Kane, DCL, Bamford
    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

    Puli, Robbo > Bruno, Zouma/ Cresswell (2FT)?

    1. Tingate
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I would probably just do Pulisic > Ziyech then go into the international break with 2FTs.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Ziyech massively overperformed his stats- 1 shot, 1 chance led to his goal and assist. He could obviously become essential but not sure

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Pulisic to Rodriguez if fit, if not then Zaha

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        I’ve gone cold on Everton and Zaha I think!

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Maybe punt on Bowen/Foden then, then leave yourself 2FTs over break.
          No rush to sell Robbo imo, especially as you have Chilwell

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            *have Chilwell already

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              You mean to upgrade Stephens or leave a ton of cash in the bank by downgrading Puli? If the latter, surely it leaves me super light in mid?

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                11 months, 22 days ago

                Not if 3-4-3 (Salah, Son, Grealish, Bowen/Foden).

                Then you have 2FTs after the break to invest the £ITB

                1. Don Kloppeone
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  11 months, 22 days ago

                  Guess you’re right. Worth considering. Need to do something to get some decent green arrows. Need some luck!

    3. The Train Driver
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Pulisic > Bowen

      Full up your bank

      Enjoy Bowen vs FUL and a couple more great fixtures...

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        What makes you think Bowen is going to do much? Last 3 matches he’s been totally flat.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          He looks good on the eye, and Fulham up next.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            I don’t mean I fancy him either...

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              Lol

  5. Gandalf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    4.5 4.0
    TAA* Chilwell Saiss* Justin 4.0
    Salah Son Havertz* Soucek 4.5
    Kane Jiménez* Wilson

    Starred the immediate problems and got 2FT. Think want to double up on Chelsea defence and team value not great so might go now on getting Zouma in.. option A the best right?

    A. Saiss > Zouma (with 2nd transfer probably being Havertz > one of Ziyech/Zaha/Grealish if decide to keep Jiménez for now)

    B. TAA > Zouma (keeping the option of doing Havertz > Rashford open now but starting Justin Vs Wolves rather than TAA)

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      A

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      11 months, 22 days ago

      B

  6. Bruce Lee
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    I don't watch JRE any more, but watching this Alex Jones one... this is the best

  7. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Chilwell or Zouma?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Chilwell I reckon

    2. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Both

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Depends what you can do with the extra 0.8m

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        No plan atm

    4. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Chilwell

  8. Traction Engine Foot
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Got exact money for TAA, Saiss, Bissouma to Zouma, Coufal, Ziyech for -4. Do it now?

    1. Tingate
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Look like good moves to me.

  9. AD2110
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Who scores more points?

    A) Ings, Ziyech, Lamptey (rotate Coufal)
    B) DCL, Rashford, 4.0 (play Robbo, Chilwell, Coufal every week)

    1. Aubaaaaa
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Think B. Like the looks of Rashford

  10. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Is Balbuena nailed?

  11. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Who to get?

    A) Ziyech
    B) Zaha

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      B

    2. Champions League Varane

    3. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      A

  12. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Not heard Mason Mount mentioned much, not a good option? Too prone to rotation?

    Only 6.8

    1. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah, rotation

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        That’s a shame

  13. Atletico Junior
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    A. Ziyech + Bamford/Watkins

    B. Jimenez + Podence

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      A with Bam

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        This

  14. Gabbiadini
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Werner or Ziyech?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Werner, more nailed

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Is he though? Dropped today before news of pulisic

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Just a rest I think, played 90 all games in all comps for Chelsea I think? Plus internationals

          1. Hansel
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            Oh, yeah possibly. Figured with all fit he could be dropped of Tammy is preferred as nr 9 and Pulisic over Werner for left slot

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        1.4 difference. let me ask you this...

        Werner and 4.5 mid
        or.
        Ziyech and Bamford

        4.5 mid would have to play in rotation for the final onfield position with Kilman, Brewster & Mitchell.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          In that case Rodriguez and Bamford for me, I foresee lots of rotation in that Chelsea midfield, but I feel Werner will nearly always play LW or upfront.

          Assuming Rodriguez is fit

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            I think Ziyech and Bamford initially. I can also swap them in GW9 (looking at fixtures).

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              Ok, it’s just very difficult for me anyway to form a substantial opinion on a player like Ziyech after one proper game.

        2. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Then Ziyech and Bam

  15. Dirty Harry
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Worth doubling up with Chilwell and Zouma instead of going Chilwell and Cresswell?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      You definitely could. I have just always been one to spread my def assets.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Double C

    3. BERGKOP

      B by some distance

  17. You've got red on you.

    Guessing not but...

    Trossard and Jimenez ----> Ziyech/Pulisic and Bamford

    -8

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      No

      Chasing

      1. You've got red on you.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Yup

    3. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      A minus 8 for that?! No

    4. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I wouldn't recommend that

  18. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Thinking of a move to 3-5-2 (A&B) or keeping 3-4-3 in C. Thoughts?

    A) Zouma, Zaha (3-5-2, Mitro first sub)
    B) Coufal, Ziyech (3-5-2, Mitro first sub)
    C) Chilwell, DCL (3-4-3, Bissouma first sub)

    1. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Could also do D) Coufal, Werner

    2. KAPTAIN KANE

      C

      1. Hansel

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 22 days ago

    What do you make of these moves?
    Robbo, Saiss and Pulisic to Chilwell, Cresswell and Rashford for a -4?

    1. Klip Klopp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah not bad. Could maybe make 2 of them for free

    2. Rashers
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I like it

    3. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Like them moves

  20. Klip Klopp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Saiss to Zouma or Chillwell?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I would go Chilwell but depends what you can do with the $

    2. Rashers
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Chilwell

    3. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Chilwell

  21. Gabbiadini
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    is...

    Saïss to Coufal
    Dunne to Kilman
    Soucek to Ziyech
    Jimenez to Bamford

    worth it for a -8? (Can do just 1 of the first 2 trades to make it a -4)

    Martinez
    Robbo | Chilwell | Coufal
    Salah | Sterling | Son | Ziyech | Zaha
    Ings | Bamford

    Forster | Kilman | Mitchell | Brewster

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Think about it logically, that first move you are taking a hit to bench Kilman

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Buy and bench him that is!

      2. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        the only reason for that is to get Kilman before his price rise. if he gets to 4.3 I can't make the trade.
        also with Coufal as 3rd defender, I want to be rotating a good option, and Wolves defence is that.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Another opportunity will crop up further down the line where you can make that move (or similar) for free. It’s not needed for the other moves to go through as Kilman is more expensive.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            I definitely understand your point. but also with Mitchell injured and potentially replaced by PVA it doesn't leave me with much cover.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              if Kilman doesn't look to rise then I'll definitely not make the trade as I agree with your points.

            2. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              Ok I see, in that case like what Africa United has suggested, just the first one.

    2. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Just A
      Bench dunne
      Soucek play against Fulham
      Not necessary and maybe Jimi to Werner to cover Chelsea supposing you won't do C

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        yes but i also need to look longterm with these trades.
        Bamford and Ziyech get out of my price range with rises.

        1. MagicMessi
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          I understand ok but don't forget that Bamford has cry ARS eve che
          ..

        2. MagicMessi
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          I like to take hits anyways I made like 20 transfers! so go for it if you feel like it GL

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            yes.
            looking at 5.9 options mid/fwd no one I see comes close to Bamford when you factor in the way Leeds are playing, the will continue to score goals despite their opponents, which is perfect as a striker.

            1. MagicMessi
              • 9 Years
              11 months, 22 days ago

              Yea I guess he is the best cheap and also can be benched with minimal regret if you think it's a tough game ... I personally regret selling him two weeks before his hatrick

  22. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 22 days ago

    How did cresswell look tonight?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Was OK. Liverpool didn't give him much to work with but took a couple of set pieces. Other than that quiet

  23. MagicMessi
    • 9 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Sorry for repost Lads thoughts on this for exactly 0.0 itb for -8

    Mings >>> Chilwell
    Lamptey>>> Balbuena
    Barkley>>>Bowen

    Yay or Nay ?

    Will give me this :
    Meslier
    Semedo. Balbuena. Chill (IVA/mtchl)
    Salah. Son. Bowen. Grealesh (Lookman)
    Kane. Ings. Werner
    Happy Halloween! God bless

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Just Mings to Chilwell for me

      1. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Yup thanks im on this and /or Barkley to Bowen /can't do both having 1 million itb

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Any of them would be for a hit right? So you’d need them to haul to make it worthwhile

          1. MagicMessi
            • 9 Years
            11 months, 22 days ago

            Yea you're right it's just looking at westham previous weeks they score lot of goals and just finished a nightmarish run of fixtures like draw with spurs and city then Liverpool then suddenly FUL the worst defence so expecting big result

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Any reason to trade Mings with Villa's fixtures?

      1. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Just to get Chillwel for Sheffield and that Zero last week hurted me personally 😀
        May bring back Target fixtures are tasty but 5+ is too expensive for villa defence

      2. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Also this rate of price changes this season make one have to make certain transfers early or you'd be priced out .. Miings didn't even play !

  24. Rashers
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    TAA & Bissouma to Coufal & Ziyech for a -4?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I want to do the same so yes

      1. Rashers
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Thanks.

        Other option is TAA to Chilwell but this seems more fun 🙂

    2. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Maybe .. I'm now afraid to give advice because of irrational results! I mean imagine TAA scored and westham lose CS

      1. Rashers
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah its definitely risky getting rid of TAA but I feel his only source of points will be attacking as Liverpool look poor defensively. Plus not firing going forward either.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Either keep TAA or TAA to Chilwell depending on your patience

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        (in other words, I wouldn’t lose TAA for the hit prescribed)

        1. Rashers
          • 8 Years
          11 months, 22 days ago

          Cheers mate. I think my patience with TAA is gone. Not convinced by Liverpool at all. I think the likes of Chilwell will match TAA with an extra 1.5m to improve elsewhere.

  25. Phil's Stamps
    • 10 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Better long-term pick?

    A) Cancello
    B) Zouma

    (Have Chillwell and decent bench cover).

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      A

    2. The Hunt
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Zouma bang on target for 16+ goals & 16+ clean sheets fwiw.

      1. The Hunt
        • 12 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        ...Lots of margin for error there.

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I just can't convince myself that Pep is going to play the same LB every week, no matter how good Cancelo has been. I could be wrong, but it seems like there's got to be rotation.

    4. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      No idea but avoid rotation risk
      But Zouma because he's cheaper

  26. Will J 256

    Just a quick one guys, do you happen to know if cresswell will rise tonight?

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      He won't since he's at 93 but there's like a 5% chance he does.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      He won’t as seems he played through groin issue today so not rising so quickly according to fpl stats

      1. Will J 256
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Cool. Cheers guys!

  27. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Saiss -> Vestergaard or Coufal?

    1. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Logic says Coufal
      But don't be sad if vestegard grabbed a goal anything is possible

    2. Rashers
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      Coufal

  28. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Is Jota becoming a serious threat to Firmino’s starting place? Great value if so

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I was thinking about this, I’m thinking he’s more tempting than Foden, possibility of similar minutes/nailedness and arguably greater goal threat.

    2. Seanigula
      • 12 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I could see them splitting games...Jota against more defensive teams, or something like that

  29. Niho992
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    Trent to Coufal for free? Can afford Chelsea defender but also i want to upgrade Barnes with Hamez and Mitrovic with Richa with 2 FTs after IB. Thoughts?

    1. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      I think it's ok just the defence move then whatever you going to do with the money
      (On your own risk because if Trent scores you'll be sad)

  30. Ray In Bruges.
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 22 days ago

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    TAA Kilman Justin (Mitchell, KWP)
    Fernandes JRod Grealish Son (ASM)
    Jimenez Ings DCL

    2FT, 2.3ITB

    Any obvious moves here? Thinking TAA + Jimenez > Chilwell + Werner?

    1. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 22 days ago

      That's obvious moves why asking

      1. MagicMessi
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 22 days ago

        Good moves I mean
