The FPL impact of Aït-Nouri’s debut on Saïss, Kilman and Podence

Wolves 2-0 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m), Daniel Podence (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Pedro Neto (£5.5m)
  • Bonus points: Aït-Nouri x3, Nelson Semedo x2 (£5.5m), Neto x1

CRY WOLF

Fantasy Premier League managers finally got a definitive clue to Nuno Espirito Santo’s long-term plans for his defence this season in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

And, much to the dismay of the 22.4% in possession of Romain Saïss (£5.3m), the top-scoring FPL defender in 2020/21, we received confirmation that his role is diminishing.

The return to fitness of Marçal (£4.9m) and the arrival of Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m) had been creeping up on Saïss for the last few weeks as he stood in at left wing-back.

But the emergence of Max Kilman (£4.2m) has caught him between a rock and a hard place considering that his old job has now been taken too. Crucially, against Palace, Saïss stayed on the Wolves bench. Helpful for avoiding one-point cameos but increasing the need for nearly a quarter of managers to draw on their bench. 

Of FPL defenders, only Trent Alexander-Arnold (33.2%) and the injured Tyrick Mitchell (25.7%) came into Gameweek 7 with more owners than Saïss, who actually became the most popular in that position among the top 10,000 managers on Friday night.

The fact that he is no longer guaranteed starts could mean a large number of managers already have one transfer booked in for Gameweek 8, especially those who feel they cannot bench a non-playing asset at £5.3m. Interestingly, 8.2% of all managers own both Saïss and Mitchell, although the latter is easier to keep on the bench for a few weeks.

Accordingly, we could see a flash-sale of the Wolves man in the coming days, especially as his team’s upcoming fixtures now take a turn for the worse from a defensive perspective anyway. Wolves travel to Leicester, Arsenal and Liverpool between now and Gameweek 11.

RAYAN ADVENTURES

Meanwhile, any hope that Saïss might somehow fight his way back to either left wing-back or centre-back were dashed by fantastic performances from both Aït-Nouri and Kilman against Crystal Palace.

Considering he is a natural left wing-back, it should come as no surprise that Aït-Nouri offered a much better balance to the Wolves side than Saïss did. He was also on-hand to blast Cheikhou Kouyaté‘s (£5.0m) first-half clearance into the bottom corner of Vicente Guaita‘s (£5.0m) net to give Wolves a well-deserved lead.

Bombing forward with intent and energy, the 19-year-old matched what Nelson Semedo (£5.5m) offered on the right and, as a result, Crystal Palace struggled to cope with how wide the pitch became.

“(Aït-Nouri) is brilliant. He’s come in and learned the role inside out. He’s really sharp. Turns you inside out with his bag of tricks. Tonight, I thought he was brilliant.” – Conor Coady

“(Aït-Nouri) played good. He has a lot of talent. There is a lot to improve on the defensive aspect and the shape of the team. But to score on your debut is great.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

DEAR PODENCE

Arguably, the chief beneficiaries of the impact Aït-Nouri had on the Wolves team were for Daniel Podence (£5.5m) and Pedro Neto (£5.5m), who each got their third attacking returns of the season in Gameweek 7.

Each wing-back taking up advanced positions, and offering energy and enthusiasm to track back, although, admittedly Aït-Nouri was not as good at that part of the job as Semedo (which Nuno picked up on, based on the above quote). Generally, the extra pace in these areas allowed the two wingers much more freedom to roam forward and cause problems against Palace.

Podence was particularly lively in the early stages, as Wolves finally rediscovered how to start games on the front foot. It is telling that Aït-Nouri’s 18th-minute goal was their first scored in the first half since Gameweek 1.

Then, after teeing up Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) for a seventh-minute headed effort and watching Guaita palm away a 10th-minute curled strike, Podence finally rewarded the patience of his 3.6% ownership with a first attacking return since Gameweek 2. 

Netting his first goal since this same fixture last season, the former Olympiacos man ghosted in at the back post to slot under Guaita after Neto had found space behind Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) for a cross.

ON THE SPOT

The 482,570 Fantasy managers who signed Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) for Gameweek 7 were, naturally, disappointed to see him pick up just one point at Wolves.

The fact that Nuno’s men have kept four clean sheets from a possible seven now arguably makes his rather quiet display feel like more of an anomaly, considering he averaged 10 points per away game before Friday night.

With Leeds (home), Burnley (away), Newcastle (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away) up next, there is still plenty of reasons to be positive about Zaha’s credentials.

Not least because he might be back on penalties again after Luka Milivojevic‘s (£5.7m) short-lived return to the Crystal Palace side.

During the club captain’s absence, Zaha has taken on responsibility for spot-kicks. But, when the Eagles were awarded one in the first half at Molineux, it was, unsurprisingly, Milivojevic who prepared to take it.

In the end, the penalty was ruled out for an offside in the build-up but the fact the Serbian collected the ball and stood over it spoke volumes.

However, Zaha owners were handed something of a reprieve as Milivojevic was sent off for violent conduct in the closing stages. At present, his ban lasts three matches, which would, of course, be ideal for anyone wanting Zaha to take some more penalties.

That said, it would be worth keeping an eye on whether or not Palace decide to appeal the decision and try to shorten the suspension.

“I’m disappointed about the red card. I personally thought it was a fair challenge from Luka Milivojević. But the referee, unfortunately, had a different opinion.” – Roy Hodgson

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Kilman, Coady, Boly; Aït-Nouri, Neves, Dendoncker, Semedo; Neto (Moutinho 76′), Jiménez (F Silva 90+1′), Podence (Traoré 76′).

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Schlupp (Eze 65′), Riedewald, Milivojevic, Townsend (Ayew 72′); Zaha, Batshuayi (Benteke 84′).

      I think the only reason Batshuayi is there is due to the order of the alphabet!

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        That or price

          Its price

      Nice!

  2. Das Boot

    is it reasonable to assume that Chelseas penalty duties will be with Werner after Jorghino missed his 2nd pen in as many weeks
    on Wednesday

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Up to Lampard, he said he’d discuss it with them

    2. Flair

      No.

      1. Das Boot

        ok. cheers both,

    3. Amey

      Nope

  3. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 11 days ago

    If Ait Nouri is as skillful as many are saying is he the best switch for Saiss?

    Or do the Wolves fixtures mean a West Ham or PVA pick is better at that price?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Don’t see him as nailed just yet

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      I think he will be more or less nailed, but don't like wolves fixtures

    3. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      PVA is an awful pick. CP have had good fixtures and still only kept one CS

      and they score very few goals so little assist or goal potential

      1. ALI_G
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Semedo or Kilman if you want Wolves

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        CP have been massively unlucky not to have 2 cs

      3. Roysgotnoboys
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        PVA is never an awful pick

    4. The Nuttman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      He's too young, I can see him getting rotated just to look after him.

    Who is the best West Ham defender replacing Saiss?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Coufal for me

    2. ALI_G
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Coufal

      or Cress if you have a bit more money

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Cresswell for me

  5. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year

    I think people should be bracing for a Chilwell rest this week...

    1. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Yep. I brought him in half expecting it so i can't really complain. I feel like a Reece James owner making potentially a bad decision by ignoring reality

    2. The Albatross
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Hope not. I'm already down to 2 defenders

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 11 days ago

        That guy is as unreliable as it gets

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          I'll believe anything 🙂

  6. Flair

    Zaha's next 4 fixtures are excellent...

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Hope yesterday's performance make people stay away from him

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Him back on penalties is even more exciting

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          PVA takes them imo

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            5 months, 11 days ago

            Possible, what's his record like?

          2. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 11 days ago

            This ^^

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Leeds & Burnley will be tough I would imagine.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Leeds are the perfect team for him, his pace and dribbling should exploit their high line. They conceded ~1.5 xG to Villa so it's not like the defense is watertight either.

        1. Baines on Toast...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Everyone said this ahead of Leeds versus city, no?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            5 months, 11 days ago

            Sterling scored?

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Could be possible but the way Leeds play with high intensity I think it'll be tough game for the old & lazy Palace players to cope with that. Wouldn't be suprised if Leeds win to nil.

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            5 months, 11 days ago

            Can see Leeds winning but Zaha will return IMO

    3. RocketMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Leeds and Burnley are being hugely overlooked ..... just because its green people are just saying great... they aint that good

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Leeds are great, Burnley less so.

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Leeds will win for sure but they leave loads of space a d concede tons of chances. Should be a good fixture for Zaha

  7. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 11 days ago

    Wolves finally get their attack going. Seemingly at the expense of Jiménez.

    1. The Nuttman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      I think it will change dependant on the team, still probably time to shift though as can see them doing the same vs similar teams.

      1. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        He was in and around several of their best chances, but his role is starting to look similar to Kane in dropping deep while the runners go ahead. And Wolves don’t score enough for that to be okay

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      It’s definitely time to move him on

    3. Giggs Boson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah, I didn't like how deep he was.

      If Antonio's not fit for next GW, I'm not sure what I'll do with him...

  8. The Nuttman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 11 days ago

    What do people think about doing Saiss to Cresswell?

    1. Concrete

      Popular on here

      I’m waiting to see if Coufal could be a better option for less

      Chilwell too

      1. The Nuttman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Coufal does seem good as well, not sure why I'm not a fan of Chilwell, maybe I still fear a rogue Kepa X-D

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I am doing this unless I really need to save the 0.5 and will go Coufal

      1. Jellyfish
        • 9 Years

        I’m going Coufal for that reason SM as it enables Berkley >Rash GW9

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. Jellyfish

      Coufal, but waiting until after the pool game to press the button

      Done already. Cresswell's stats and fixtures are great

  9. Shark Team

    Expect Salah to get a solid 7-8pointer today but went with Kane cause i expect Spurs to score 2+ on Sunday

    1. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      If Mo doesn’t get a major haul today I honestly think there is a case for selling.

      At his price this should be a no brainer captaincy option. If he doesn’t deliver, then with the Manchester team fixtures coming soon I don’t see how he can offer value.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        A "major haul" is very unlikely.

        His fixtures are excellent after GW10 too.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Very harsh, can’t expect a player to haul every single week no matter what their price is

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

          This

      3. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        But then that's the case for all premium mids. Will you be saying the same for Sterling, Raz or Bruno if they blank one game?

    2. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      If you expect salah to get 7 or 8 and you didn't captain him, that is bad management imo

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Disagree. He expects Kane to score more than 8

        1. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Expecting a player to score more than 1 in the premier league is too high expectation. Id take 8 points with my captaincy every week

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 11 days ago

            Sorry but 8 point per week from captain in a goal fest season is a bit low

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              5 months, 11 days ago

              It's 604 points a season, how many more do you want...

              1. Nightcrawler
                • 1 Year
                5 months, 11 days ago

                Im on 61 points first 6 games from captain and even then i feel likes ive missed big hauls/made wrong calls

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  5 months, 11 days ago

                  By that metric 61 is poor, I'm on 94 (C) points currently, 2 off the required points total if we take 16 points from our captain each week.

                  1. Nightcrawler
                    • 1 Year
                    5 months, 11 days ago

                    61 is over 10 ppg and ive made a few wrong calls. When the goals are flowing with no corwds and more pens its easy to get 10 ppg

            2. Pumpy Pro
              • 11 Years
              5 months, 11 days ago

              Ridiculous. You are going to be very disappointed with that outlook

    Berge a good pick from GW9? A bit out there but thoughts?

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years

      Soucek the man

    2. Pukki Blinders

      Not for me, Soucek or none at that price

      But Berge is on penalties 😮

        • 1 Year

        Realistically how many penalties will SHU get? 2-3 a season I’d say

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year

    I consider the bottom 9 teams to be: Aston Villa, Newcastle, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Sheffield Utd, Burnley, West Bromwich Albion, and Fulham.

    Typically such teams are dependent on one or two players to get results. I reckon they are:

    Villa: Mings, Grealish
    Newcastle: Dubravka, ASM
    West Ham: Fabianski, Antonio
    Palace: Guaita, Zaha
    Brighton: Dunk, Maupay
    Sheffield Utd: Baldock, O'Connell
    Burnley: Mee, Tarkowski
    WBA: Pereira
    Fulham: Mitrovic

      What does that say about Arsenal and Aubameyang?

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Arsenal have a tough run of fixtures (Liverpool, Man City, Leicester, Man Utd). I don't think they are quite a one-man or two-man team. But let's see.

        My concern with Arsenal is that I can get players from Chelsea, Man Utd etc who are similarly priced and are likely to do better than Arsenal over the long run.

      You seem to have finished mid-story. I was looking forward to the ending.

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Ha. Just putting it out there for comment. Agree or disagree?

        Personally think you take one or both of these out the relevant team and there will be a significant drop off in performance that means you can target them in FPL.

      Pope and Martinez?

      1. diesel001
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Not for me. Martinez is good, but Mings is the leader of that defence. Pope is a system GK. He depends on the players in front of him sticking to their tasks. Heaton was just as good as Pope and I expect BPF to do a similar job to Pope.

    4. Third Eye Vision

      Everton and Richarlison.

    It greatly irritates me that City, Liverpool, and United all have a fixture swing around GW10. One at a time people!

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Perfect for us WCers hey

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Must be nice

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      I can make 3 transfers and have midfield of Salah, Raz/KDB, Bruno Son & Foden. But I'm not sure if I want sell Mane for a City/Utd mid while Pool have good fixtures. Kane can become either Bruno in GW9 or Sterling/Raz in GW10.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        5 months, 11 days ago

        If Antonio is fit I'd love to rock a DCL-Antonio front two and invest in midfield. Lots of planning to do after the matches are played, United especially interest me - not sure on their assets. 2 FT flexibility is useful!

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Yup even I'm not sure about United. Need to see more from them next 2 games if I want to sell Kane for Bruno. DCL & cheap forward does look a decent plan.

  14. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    5 months, 11 days ago

    JRod > Zaha?
    Or keep Rodriguez?
    Have DCL and double everton is feeling a bit much

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Same conundrum. Need to lose one to upgrade to Rash or Fernandes.

    2. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Might keep Zaha for a bit and then swap to James if Everton pick up again.

  15. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years

    What to do with Saïss?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      He’s a sell

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        to Kilman?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Probably not, look at fixtures

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 11 days ago

            what side would you suggest?

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 11 days ago

              Whu and Avl the obvious 2

              1. Gabbiadini
                • 3 Years

      Resented fit one week?

    3. Black Knights
      • 9 Years

      Sell him.

  16. Inazuma X1

    Wilfred is not on pens

    Mili is on pens

    1. diesel001

      Mili is banned.

    2. Pukki Blinders

      Mili is suspended

      Zaha is not suspended

      1. Inazuma X1

        Bats on pens then 😀

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year

          U havent been focusing then

        2. Joey Tribbiani
            5 months, 11 days ago

            Do you even fantasy football?

      2. Roysgotnoboys
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Suspended after his red

      3. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        PVA could likely take them

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Who to get rid of first?

      A) Saiss
      B) Mitchell

      And for who?

      0.3 in the bank

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Saiss for sure, to a WHU def

      2. Roysgotnoboys
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Saiss not going to start going forwards?

      3. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        A - I think Mitchell could return to the starting line up

      4. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Saiss -> PVA/Coufal

        If Cahill's back for Palace I think PVA will do well in the next 4 games. I really want him, but I think it might hinder me in a few weeks when I need a little bit of cash...

        1. Sloopy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          I have PVA. 1 point in the last 3 games. But not selling.

      5. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Cheers!

    4. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Have been thinking to upgrade Barnes mostly so far but Barnes/Saiss to Bowen/Chilwell looks quite good

    5. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Anyone rage transferring our Guaita?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Would be silly look at their next 4

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        I'm too cool headed this season.. can't with fixtures. Hate his guts though

    6. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Would u give up 30 points for an extra 1m itb?

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        No, I'd just be 0.1 short of my new ideal move

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

        Nope, can always get a good team out and would take points over team value any day

    7. Jellyfish
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Looking ahead to GW9 I am seriously considering benching Robbo (City A) for Lamptey (Burnley H).

      Sensible move or nuts?

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Nuts. Burnley will win 3-0 and Lamptey YC. Brighton don't keep cleans

      2. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        See the logic but i will play him

      3. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Robbo v Walker I know who wins...

      4. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        That’s the right decision

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

        Nuts. Lamptey's got me bugger all points in the weeks I've had him including games against wba and cpl.

    8. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      In GW10 who would you get rid for KDB and who would you sell to raise 2.0m?

      Sell - a) Son, b) Rashford
      Fund - 1) Robbo, 2) Ings

      1. Sean
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Doing 1a

    9. Werner Bremen
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Have two ft's for next gameweek. Should I get Bowen for a one GW punt or bank on the transfer?

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Bowen if not using the transfer

    10. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Villa to get a penalty tomorrow and finally put to rest who’s on them

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        If it's not Grealish then McCarthy better save it

    11. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Rodriguez to Zaha. Yey or ney (sorry for asking again)

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        No unless Rodriguez is out again

      2. LC1
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        JRod has 3 great fixtures in 9, 10 and 11 so not too sure on that one.

      3. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

      Missed the deadline, so relying on Lamptey & Bissouma to perform a miracle this week

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Very possible, he got an assist against Chelsea and United. Seems to like the big games. More space for him.

        1. Giggs Boson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 11 days ago

          Lamptey that is, Bissouma's getting 1-2pts 😉

    13. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      5 months, 11 days ago

      37 minutes left, Foden and Sterling have a very good chance of starting I hope

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        1 hour 37 minutes 😛

        I wish it was 37 though..

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    14. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Any ideas here? Thinking of a mini WC along the lines of:

      Trent/Foden/Jimenez -> Coufal/Bruno/Werner (-4)

      McCarthy
      Trent, Bellerin, Lamptey
      Salah, Son, Foden, Barkley
      Kane, Jiménez, Antonio

      Steer, Holding, Mitchell, Bissouma
      Bank 2.0m, 2FTs

      1. Giggs Boson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Not sure Werner is worth it personally...

        Jimenez/Bissouma -> Brewster/Bruno?

      2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 11 days ago

        Maybe just do the first 2 and Jimenez to Werner/Ings the week after?
        No need to take the hit I guess

      Looks like Chilwell and Reece James will start

    16. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      5 months, 11 days ago

      Saiss replacement for Max 5.4?

      A) Cancelo
      B) Cresswell
      C) Pva
      D) Kilman
      E) Other
