Mitrović leads Fantasy interest as Fulham host unchanged West Brom

Aleksandar Mitrović (£5.8m) leads the Fantasy Premier League interest in Monday’s clash between Fulham and West Bromwich Albion.

The mid-priced forward currently sits in 8.4% although his backing has been in decline for some time now.

Mitrović is now without an attacking return since Gameweek 2, leaving behind only his most loyal followers for Gameweek 7.

The Fulham striker has registered 18 shots in the box over his last four matches, the joint-most of any player in the top flight over the same period.

Is he due a goal? Perhaps. But will West Bromwich Albion been as obliging as earlier in the campaign? That does seem unlikely.

Since Branislav Ivanovic‘s (£4.5m) debut in Gameweek 5, and the rolling out of a new back-four after Slaven Bilic ditch his five-man defence, the Baggies have conceded just one goal.

That has worked out at an average of 0.5 per match, compared to 3.2 per match between Gameweeks 1 and 4.

The former Chelsea man has also led West Bromwich Albion for shots in the box since his debut so there is sure to be a keen eye on his performance at Craven Cottage tonight.

Fantasy managers looking to captain either Harry Kane (£10.9m) or Son Heung-min (£9.6m) in Gameweek 8 should also keep tabs on the Baggies’ backline on Monday night as the two sides go head-to-head at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.

Fulham XI: Areola; A Robinson, Andersen, Adarabioyo, Aina; Lemina, Anguissa; Lookman, Cairney, De Cordova-Reid; Mitrović

West Bromwich Albion XI: Johnstone; Townsend, Ajayi, Ivanovic, Furlong; Livermore, Gallagher; Diangana, M Pereira, Krovinovic; Grant.

      Ah ha, the sensible Fred, you know there's a much dumber one about these days?

    Either Werner or DCL?

      DCL, with caveat on what's the excess money for?

    Had been looking at a GW9 wildcard since the start of the season, but after planning my WC team I reckon I'll be able to phase my current team into it and pick up some nice fixtures along the way. Only problem is planning 5 GW's worth of transfers is pretty fragile (injuries, price changes etc...)

    Is there enough information about potential B/DGWs yet to consider saving the WC for GW16 instead?

    Mitro hatty in the 2nd half. Us owners deserve it

      I’ll take 1 but agreed, we do. Goals are incoming as his under lying stats are decent, so here’s hoping it all works out

    Any chance Ings playing this weekend? Unclear from the tweet

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

      What I want to know too. Have the cash to upgrade Ings to Kane.

      I'd say it's unlikely that he's playing, but wait a few days for further updates. As it looks like now he won't go down in price yet, so from my point of view (own him as well) no hurry yet

  7. Parsnips
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Saiss and Mitchell > Coufal and Killman for a hit????

      1. htfcbrad
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Saiss --> Coufal yes, wouldn't take a hit for a defender though, especially with those tough fixtures for Wolves

    • Pad Randa
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      This has been a tough season start, no question about it. Need major help, as I'm about to drop into the 4M range.

      Martinez - Ryan
      Robbo - Chilwell - Saiss - Mitchell - Dunne
      Salah - JRod - Zaha - Barnes - Pereira
      Kane - Jimi - Brewster

      WC gone. 1.0 ITB.

      1. Lazaretti
        • 3 Years

        GTG for next week. Or maybe you need to use transfer to one your defs. Dunne, Mitchell and Saiss.

        Why the big surprise?

        On pens and has some great underlying stats.

          Mate he plays for fulham debate over

    • kime67
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      so i guess the captain pick is pretty easy this week

    • Chucky
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Do people still have Mitrovic? I couldn't keep for more than 4GWs... enjoyed his juicy brace in GW2....

    • Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      At least casual mitro owners have to live with the fact they own mitrovic

    • Bennyboy1907
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Bellerin or Cresswell?

        1. wulfranian

          Cresswell

      • El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Justin > Cresswell or Bellerin long term?

        Chilwell - Justin* - Lamptey - Dallas - Mitchell

      • CelticBhoy1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Current WC team

        McCarthy
        Chilwell PVA Coufal
        Salah Grealish Son Zaha
        Wilson Kane DCL

        Subs: Button Lamptey Kilman Bissouma

        Any thoughts on what to do with the extra 1.7?

        1. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC not us…
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Too much template imo. You won't get advantage. I would set up the team to get City and Utd cover and take advantage of the fixtures swing.

          Your team is a good one but a reactive one not progressive one

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            This. Rashford ahead of Son or Kane

        2. JohnnyRev7
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          You can afford a Chelski mid in there instead of Zaha. Havertz or Ziyech. Otherwise it looks as "pin the tail on the donkey" as the rest of our squads/hopes/fears.

      • Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC not us…
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Even Mitrovic delivers against WBA. Back to the drawing board to see how to bring united assets against them

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Son to Rashford

          Everton also one of the worst teams defensively over the past 4 weeks.

      • KUNingas
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Pulisic ->
        A) Ziyech
        B) Zaha
        C) Fornals (!)

            2 months, 19 days ago

            Ziyech

            I had made this decision yesterday when he was 7.9 and was going to do Pulisic/Foden to Ziyech/Grealish which I had the exact funds for.

            Took down a bottle of red and forgot all about it.

            Now 8.0

            Typical.

      • Gudjohnsen

        TAA, Saiss, Podence to Coufal, Zouma, Zieych for -4?

        • 7 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        scared of going without Kane against this lot... Ings to Kane for 8 point hit or cover kane by capping Son?

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Have to get both cuz for every son goal kane will get 3 points

          And hell score himself too

          1. Chucky
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            yeah,8 point hit on the cards.... thanks

        2. 2OLEgend
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Capping Son will not cover Kane. And I wouldnt take a -8 to bring him in for 1 fix. Hide behind the sofa next weekend is my advice

            1. Chucky
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 19 days ago

            Rare to agree a 8 point hit. But Kane is a must vs WBA.

            The way this season goes WBA might aswell keep Spurs at the bay.

                  Jeez thats high

                      No, you only lose rank if he's effective overship is above 100%

                        Yes but captaincy means 41x2 82% ownership

                        Ok not blank but any points will be negligible benefit for me

                            Even Salah this week was lower than 100% EO, so even if you didnt captain his points benefitted you, think about that lol

                        Can't decide:

                        1) Get Kane just before his fixtures start to turn bad.
                        2) Get Bruno when his fixtures start to turn good.

                        1. KAPTAIN KANE

                            I can't get both unfortunately. Have Salah Sterling Son Foen Podence in my midfield with Ings, Bamford and DCL up top.
