Suspensions

The Suspension Tightrope: Which FPL players are nearing a one-match ban?

Those who keep an eye on the Suspension Tightrope widget on our homepage will be aware that the yellow cards are steadily racking up for several Premier League players.

The respite provided by the final international break of 2020 seems like a good time to take stock of the disciplinary situation around the top flight.

The yellow card amnesty is not until after the completion of a team’s 19 league fixtures (more on that later), after which the threshold moves up from five to ten bookings.

Those Fantasy Premier League assets already sitting on three and especially four cautions still have a long way to go before they are in the clear, then.

ON FOUR YELLOW CARDS

There is only one player who is currently a solitary yellow card away from suspension: Leicester City’s Jonny Evans (£5.5m).

The Northern Ireland international has managed to rack up four cautions in just five league appearances this season, the latest of which came in Gameweek 8.

With Caglar Soyuncu (£5.3m) a longer-term absentee and news awaited on the severity of Wesley Fofana’s (£5.0m) knee injury, the Foxes can’t afford to lose many more bodies at the heart of their defence.

Evans’ four bookings have come from just six fouls conceded, at least, so the experienced stopper is hardly flirting with danger on a regular basis.

ON THREE YELLOW CARDS

While Evans is out in front on his own on four bookings, there is a baker’s dozen of Premier League players who are just a caution behind.

Most are lower-owned FPL assets and/or agricultural midfield types but there are a handful of semi-popular options within the list.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) boasts a double-digit ownership, while Hector Bellerin (£5.1m) was among the top five most-bought defenders of Gameweek 8.

Those two players sit in 19.7% and 16.4% of the top 10,000 squads respectively.

John McGinn (£5.5m) saw his ownership increase sixfold after his early-season heroics, while Mateusz Klich‘s (£5.6m) own purple patch of form and penalty-taking responsibilities have seen him become the fifth most-popular budget midfield option under £6.0m.

Of the 14 players on three or four yellow cards, Klich has committed the most fouls. Indeed, only two top-flight players have fouled the opposition on more occasions than the Pole (19).

There are no surprises to see Oriel Romeu (£4.5m) on the above table: the Southampton midfield spoiler and emergency bench fodder option has racked up over ten times as many yellow cards as he has FPL attacking returns in his Premier League career.

John Lundstram‘s (£5.1m) name appearing on the list would have been headline news in 2019/20 but given his recategorization as an FPL midfielder, uncertain future at Bramall Lane and plummeting ownership, he is but a mere footnote this season.

WHEN ARE THE CUT-OFF POINTS FOR SUSPENSIONS?

As we mentioned in the introduction, the yellow card threshold is raised to ten after 19 league fixtures.

In most seasons, that would ordinarily mean after the completion of Gameweek 19 – but this is no ordinary campaign.

Aston Villa, Burnley, Manchester City and Manchester United are a game behind the other 16 top-flight clubs, with word awaited on the rearrangement of their respective Blank Gameweek 1 fixtures.

We have also yet to see how a complicated-looking January schedule pans out, with the ‘Matchweek 18’ games split into two and sandwiching Gameweek 19.

And any unexpected postponements between now and then would, of course, further affect the ’19th fixture’ cut-off point.

The threshold for ten yellow cards is after 32 league matches, which will be mid-April at the earliest.

Players collecting ten bookings before that point will serve a two-game ban.

Punishments for yellow card accumulation are competition-specific, whereas suspensions for dismissals cover all competitive matches.


Keep your eyes peeled on our Suspension Tightrope widget over the coming weeks and months, as we’ll be updating that after every Gameweek to keep you informed on the latest disciplinary developments.

    Mo Salah or No Salah

    Pros and cons if he is out for the match vs Leicester

    Pros
    1) Savings.
    Money itb, no matter who’s coming in.
    2) 1 or 2 games
    You get a player who will play in 2 games and not in one.
    E.g. You hold on Salah and you have a match with Brighton (away).
    If you replace him with Bruno you have a player for 2 games: West Brom and Southampton.
    3) Captaincy.
    GW 10 and GW 11 you have better captain options with Kdb, Vardy, and Calvert Lewin.

    Cons
    1) Value.
    He is now worth £ 12.4, for those who took him at £ 12.0.
    When you’ll get him back you’ll have to pay more.
    However if you get rid of him now at £ 12.2 and his0 price drops to £ 12.3 or even £ 12.2, little harm.
    2) Form.
    He has his best start in the first 8 games in fpl, even better than the year 17/18 when he broke the absolute record of points with 303.
    3) Fixtures.
    Liverpool may be plagued by many absences but the eases off after GW14
    But is it too far? GW is on Boxing Day.

    Man City with 2 great games at home and Bruno with 2 games away….I am very tempted to get rid of him.

    Thoughts?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Yeah current plan is to move him and return GW12

      1. Top Dog
        • 11 Years

        Who are you replacing with?

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Bruno

    2. Top Dog
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      If one game definitely keeping, two games becomes slightly trickier but still think I will keep. Have Soucek coming in, and he has potential for returns.

        We won't know how many games though is the problem.

      Sold. Own jota anyway. Will buy back for 12.2. With quarantine rules/flights can see him missing 2 league games tbh

      1. pablo discobar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Sold for bruno which allows Son to KDB neck wwek

          Solid plan.
          Similar to mine

            Apart from the risk that Bruno gets injured, or infected, this week.

      2. Peter Ouch

        Let's hope 12.2 cause you never know

    4. drughi

      considering selling him for KDB then son>Sterling next week, going full blast on city ahead of their juicy run

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I think one of kdb or raz with cancelo is better than kdb and raz together.
        You can't find the right captain if you have both and it's gonna be very frustrating.
        Less money spend as well

        1. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          will get cancelo aswell, sterling>salah before fulham

      I dont care, Im moving him out! No way £12m+ asset sits on my bench for at least 2 GWs...

      1. Top Dog
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Why two, even if two weeks would be back for Brighton

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          You’d be pretty optimistic if you think he flies back, starts training and starts the next game in gw10 which is less than 14 days away when he’s just been diagnosed with covid today...

          1. Top Dog
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Was reported yesterday, so if quarantine period is 2 weeks could still make it. If quarantine rules in Egypt same as UK only 10 days

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I dont believe he´s gonna be ready for BHA. My benchmark is CR7, also a mega star, aguably THE mega star. He got diagnosed on a IB as well didnt play France vs Portugal and missed 3 league games + 1CL game for Juventus and he was in Portugal not in Egypt.

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        At least or max? Min is 1 gw

    6. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Hows Mane been since he has covid? Definitely not the same as pre covid form. Think covid will derail Salahs form too

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        I prefer Jota, half price

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Klopp won’t play 4231, he was just experimenting. Don’t think Jota will display either of Pool’s front 3

          no idea.
          I like grealish/ziyech maybe both for -4
          One of those give me Vardy next week for ful(h)

          Sterling Podence Son Grealish
          Kane DCl Vardy

          1. Peter Ouch

            2 months, 9 days ago

            Not interested on Bruno?
            From the moment he joined utd ha hasn't a single blank away.
            Not a single one and he has 2 away games in the next 3 with Brom at home.
            Also would you captain Vardy over Sterling vs Burnley?

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 9 days ago

              You’re looking into home/away too much with Bruno. It’s a biased sample

              1. Peter Ouch
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Maybe mate, but not a single blank from last year's Gw25?
                Isn't impressive?

                  Super impressive! I have mentioned here the other day that I think he´s one of the top 5 players in EPL and almost started a revolution...

                It's related to how United set up.
                Home Bruno & United tend to keep possession and be aggressive in possession.

                Away tgey set up for counter attacking style. He is a energy battery so doesn't get tired hence keep making runs in box.

                1. Peter Ouch
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  I was waiting for you haha!

                  Another interesting fact is that Pogba has played 4 times more than 60 mins.

                  Bruno has all his banks in 3 of these games and the 4th was the penalty vs Brighton after the final whistle

                  1. Amey
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    I don't think Pogba affects Bruno attacking wise too much. He affects United's defensive shape when not in possession (which makes Bruno run more to grab possession but as i said above the lad is extremely fit hence doesn't get tired despite pressing like madman over whole game)

    8. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Keeping

    9. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      When I plan future transfer like this one getting rid of a player and then getting him back, I never do it because something destroys my plan and I end up missing a haul from this player. So in gonna stick to my plan and just play Kilman this gw

  3. Fuddled FC
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Here is a very exciting question

    On wc

    a) Balbuena
    b) Kilman
    c) other 4.4m or under

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Lewis

    2. THE KING CANTONA
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      c) Nathaniel Phillips (LIV) for short term.

      1. Fuddled FC
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        If he was guaranteed to start but unfortunately he's not

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Hes not registered to play UCL so much more likely to start for the PL games

          1. Fuddled FC
            • 9 Years

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years

      🙂 a) Balbuena - fixtures

  4. THE KING CANTONA
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 9 days ago

    With 1 FT 0itb, which transfer(s) would you suggest?

    Martinez | Forster
    Coufal | Konsa | Bellerin | *Mitchell* | Lamptey
    *Salah* | Sterling | Grealish | *Podence* | Bissouma
    Kane | Werner | *Jimenez*

    1. Salah to Jota/Eze/Zaha and next week Podence to Salah (which may include Jimenez too).
    1a. Jota) 1b) Zaha, 1c) Eze
    2. Salah & Podence => Bruno/Rashford & Jota for -4.
    3. Save FT and play Lamptey/Bissouma for Salah.
    4. Any other suggestions?

  5. Pukki Blinders

    Judging from the shambles this week, should we load up our benches on WC with 3 playing bench fodders?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Don’t need to be fodders 😉

        You reckon, could be like this till we get vaccinated?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Next IB is in March 2021, I’d say vaccine would be here by then

    3. Brosstan

      • 6 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      most people have 2 already, investing the > .5 needed to get a 5th guaranteed playing defender Im not sure is worth it. Especially if you dont have WC and have to use a transfer to make that change. Im happy with 2 + Mitchell

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        that should have been < .5

  6. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Mitro -> any striker up to 8m worth a hit?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 9 days ago

      To Watkins or bamford could well pay off Over time but Everton have been bad at the back so might not be the week for it

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      To Literally anyone! Watkins Bamford etc. Many options better than this useless bozo. I’d go cheaper and use the money in midfield.

  7. drughi

    So can I get some input on what to do here ? 0.8 itb but no free transfers left. If salah is out fort 2 gameweeks I'm doing salah>KDB

    Mccarthy

    The general consensus among math people is that "multiplication by juxtaposition" (that is, multiplying by just putting things next to each other, rather than using the "×" sign) indicates that the juxtaposed values must be multiplied together before processing other operations.

    GTG for next GW? Looking to hold Salah.

    Martinez
    Coufal Chilwell Kilman
    Salah* Grealish Son Bruno
    Maupay Kane DCL

    Steer Bissouma Lamptey Dallas

    1. Forever In Our Shadow

      Giving Maupay another go? I’d rather play Bissouma tbh. Not as good as he had the potential to be.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        One more go I think. Already used my FT to get rid of TAA.

      I think you can include Klopp and Mourinho in that. I can see a war of words on the horizon after this IB between clubs and county. Not going well is it?

          Well and truly blowing up in the face of whoever made the decision to just carry on with Internationals. Stupid idea.

          I get it with the PL, The masters, The TDF and such like...it’s how they make their living....so they either do it in a limited way or the sport goes bust. Some of the stuff football is indulging in is completely unnecessary.

          1. Boss Hogg

            Agreed. And with no fans it’s just crap.

            We're slightly hypocrite about international games in general 🙂
            In UCL also United travelled to Turkey.

            But yes, that's money ball. So important for economic structure of club football. But as you said international friendlies can be scrapped completely.

            What can be done is organising qualifiers over summer break. 1 month near by stadiums. Just like UCL last season.

        3. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Don't agree. Someone called a pandemic and to carry on with international friendlies is nonsense (are there any fans at the game? It's a spectator sport after all). To flout the rules and invite Iceland to play at Wembley is just ridiculous, regardless of which camp you're in. Bring in Leeds or a championship side to give em a good run all day 🙂

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years

            I don't think anyone disagree with this here 😀

            Playing in a "safe" country like Albania would be dumber - I expect Denmark has higher Covid figures than Albania due to better testing / diagnosis

            1. Pep bites Kun
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Good point also - I just don't see the point of international friendlies, during a global pandemic. There are FA cup teams and similar in other leagues that give teams a good run for their money. Keep it local, invite fans, let's get on with the game 🙂

    if you have alternative (c) in next 2 weeks to Salah then sell.
    Easy.

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Would you plan to bring him back in GW12 ?

      I’m inclined to sell to KDB for a -4.

        You have to look at it in context. It may just be following the herd, so not as damaging as it might be,

    3. djoker_nole
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Kane vs Palace is a good option

    4. jamesjoseph2770
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Son has tested negative in latest test. But 2 more Korean players have tested positive, bringing the total number to 7.

        Is the match cancelled?

        Always hold your breathe when Son travels for internationals. It’s not that long ago that he was in that Hungers Games style tournament playing for his freedom from a year in the army!

      DCL is surely the best armband option this gw ? Has only blanked once so far, richarlison back in the team and fulham is the worst side in the league after west brom.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Bruno prolly a better option.

    7. JURGENAUT

      I'm thinking of captaining Werner. Anyone else considering the same?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2. Inazuma X1

        Best captain choice this GW imo, wish I had him

        1. JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Aha, true but like most of us, our options have become limited. I do have Grealish too but just leaning toward Werner right now.

          1. Epic ⚽ 墅
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Just captain him. Doesn't matter if other people are. He's a good choice.

            1. JURGENAUT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Yeah, he's coming into form recently and on pens too against a potentially Wilson-less Newcastle?

      3. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        If you have he's great choice. I have Pulisic and praying he's fit in time

        1. JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Yeah, I have Werner.
          Options became limited following Salah's news.
          Kane & Son have City so going to steer away from that.
          Zaha, not captain material imo.
          DCL & Grealish are other candidates but I think I'm leaning toward Werner.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Grealish or Timo out of those

        2. JURGENAUT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Oh & I wish Pulisic was fit too. He was someone I wanted early in the season, but his injuries keep ruining the plan.

        Will wait till Friday- but would you take another hit on salah to Bruno (c) - or go with team below?

        Seems reasonable chance salah will miss 2 premier league games.

            Full time. I know internationals are not premier league but could be a kikckstart. Was wanting to see some form from Ricarlison or Jesus - not sure how they played. I’m hoping Jimenez plays well tonight /Tuesday and maybe I can let him have a bit more time.

            1. Would Ed Woodward
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Didn't he score last IB as well? Didn't help then.

              1. The Ilfordian

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Did he? Sometimes players are better in their national squad than their club side. I don’t believe he’s become a bad player but he’s clearly struggling with goal scoring opportunities at Liverpool at the moment. I think the same about Jimenez but in his case he seems lost without that regular supply from the wings without Docherty and Jota and opportunities are coming straight down the middle from the midfield. Maybe Jota is displacing Firmino like Bale seemed to bypass Son last weekend?

        2. Flair

        Robertson Zouma Lamptey (Dunne (Mitchell))
        Salah Bruno Son Bowen (Bissouma)
        Kane DCL Watkins

        Already taken a -4, have no idea what to do with my team, don't really like it and struggling with rank atm.

        Any ideas? Thinking of taking another hit to take Salah out as Bissouma won't do anything, maybe Ziyech which would allow me to upgrade Son to KDB and Bowen to James. Might even play FH if I get another few injuries lol

        1. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Team is fine as it is.

        This Salah thing isn’t that bad. Look at it as a guaranteed time injury during international break. We all no how long he has to isolate for so surely it’s not as bad as say KDB’s injury in the last IB. Is he isn’t he. In this case he is. 10 days from yesterday. Back gw10 probably mid week champions league. It’s only one week in reality. Much better than a hammy or groin injury.

        1. Flynny

          General consensus is that it should be 1 week but there's a slight risk of 2.

        If no symptoms - 1 PL and maybe also midweek Champions League afterwards. Will be well rested for GW10, given, he'll manages somehow potential lack of match fitness issue.

          He will be ready to go. If anything it will give him a good rest between now and gw10.

        All this fuss about Salah. Will he won't he play.He scores the odd penalty . That's about it.
        Easily replaced.

          Just the player most likely to be top scorer in FPL...

          Definitely plenty of alternatives though

        So people really think that a player who will be in quarantine for at least 10 days (in a different country) without a day of training will start a premier league game in 14 days, okay good luck with that

          People who made early transfers and dont want to take a hit to remove Salah grasping at straws

            Pretty sure he played after 15 days or so

          I forgot a player in peak physical fitness witt ttrh no symptoms can’t do any training while isolating. Back gw10 without fail for. He will be chomping at the bit to play again. I tested positive with no symptoms. Was dying to get back to work as there was f all wrong with me. Salah is a very fit guy and I’m a fat middle aged couch potato. For me he plays gw10 no issue.

          Good luck later in the season without one.

          You're going to need your FH chip to manage the split GW18 or FA Cup blanks. There is nothing going on this week that can't be fixed with patience, and maybe a hit or two nearer the deadline.

          -4 is a better option

        Why is skypsports saying he's "a doubt"?

        https://www.skysports.com/football/news/12010/12132489/mohamed-salah-liverpool-forward-a-doubt-for-leicester-clash-after-second-test-confirms-covid-19

        Are there scenarios where Salah can actually play Leiceister?

          None. 10 days isolation. Tested positve Friday means the Leicester game is 8 days into his isolation.

            Agree, they shouldn't say "doubt" then.

        Sell Salah for a hit or play Cancelo?

        Only 0.1 value in him and have Son and Kane playing.. However am on a hot

        1. Flair

          Play Cancelo though it's difficult to give a decent verdict w/o context

            I just did the transfer lmao

        How is this move looking?

        Salah + Son > Mane + Sterling (-4)

        Just enough for this,5th -4 in a row but looks good

        1. Jeremy Corbyn
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Not bad

        2. Flair

          Already have KDB? I'd prefer him but yeah it could definitely pay off with City's fixtures.

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Dont have KDB,will go with Sterling.
            0.1 short of Son > Sterling if Salah is out 1 GW only

        I should had sold Kane before they stole his Range Rover... He will be disappointed now so he will have consecutive blanks

          Won’t mean squat. More likely score more now as he needs to bonus to pay his insurance premium. 😉
