International Football

How many minutes did FPL assets play over the international break?

The final international break of 2020 has come to an end, with a number of Premier League clubs counting the cost of their players’ involvement with their respective countries.

Even by usual standards, we’ve seen a higher-than-average number of Fantasy Premier League flags appearing over the last fortnight thanks to a combination of injury and illness.

Our Team News tab and our press conference round-up (in both article and video form) will cover everything on the fitness front but it is fatigue we’re focusing more on in this article as we look at how many minutes each FPL asset clocked up while on international duty.

Some nations crammed in a triple-header of games over the last fortnight, with a handful of top-flight players taking part in all three of their respective country’s matches.

As well as on-field exertions, long-haul flights back from further afield may also be a consideration ahead of Gameweek 9.

MOST MINUTES PLAYED

FURTHEST TRAVELLED AND LATEST RETURNEES

Many of the matches that took place over the international break, including the friendlies involving the USA, Mexico and South Korea, were staged in Europe.

There were a number of World Cup qualifiers held in South America, however, so the likes of James Rodriguez (£7.9m), Richarlison (£7.8m), Roberto Firmino (£9.2m) and Alex Telles (£5.5m) have had to endure long-haul flights back from their respective countries after being in action late on Tuesday or in the early hours of Wednesday morning (UK time).

Thiago Silva (£5.5m), indeed, looks set to miss Gameweek 9 as a result of his late return.

The South American countries weren’t the last ones in action, however, with a host of European teams – including England, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and the Netherlands – contesting UEFA Nations League games as late as Wednesday evening.

Players such as Sadio Mane (£12.1m), Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.2m) have all been in African Cup of Nations qualifying duty in their home continent, meanwhile, although all those games were wrapped up by Tuesday afternoon at the latest.

The dates for all of the international games in November are available here.

CLUB-BY-CLUB ROUND-UP

The team-by-team guide below breaks down the minutes that each player has played per international match over the last week or so, with a total given at the end.

Any players with an asterisk next to their names withdrew from their countries’ squads either midway through the international break or picked up an injury at the back-end of it.

As mentioned earlier, we’ll have further details on any lingering fitness concerns in our pre-Gameweek 9 team news round-up on Friday.

    Transfer suggestions? (2FTs + 0. 5m)

    Martinez Forster
    Robbo Chilwell Reguilion Coufal Dallas
    Salah Son Rodriguez Grealish Soucek
    Kane DCL Bamford

    1. Black Knights
      • 9 Years

      Just use 1FT to tidy a defender? Reguillon to someone as their games aren't great?

      1. corderz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Reguilion to Cancelo?

        1. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah why not. The rest of your defs can handle the odd benching.

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Kane -> Vardy, Reguillon -> Cancelo

    Which -4 do you prefer Salah out for
    A. Bruno (C)
    B. Ziyech (C)

    If I got Ziyech, he can stay in my team. If I got Bruno, he would have to make way in a couple of weeks to get Salah back.

    Thanks!

      Easy A

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

        What makes it so easy? Do you think Bruno scores enough over 2 weeks to justify a -4 and another transfer to take him out?

        1. Phlajo
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 11 days ago

          If you Cap him yes. I like Ziyech, but Bruno is just another level regarding FPL.

          I think he'll do well in the next 2 GWs, so if you bring him in you could be in a dilemma transferring him out again. That's another headache though

      B. But I'm buying KdB over both.

    Who would you prioritise between these two?

    A) Bruno (Best captain this week alternatives are Ziyech/Jack/DCL if I don't own Bruno)

    B) Vardy (Best captain next week alternative is KDB/Bruno if I don't own Vardy)

    If Bruno then Kane stays for a few games.
    If Vardy then Son stays for a few games.

    Appreciate your thoughts! 🙂

    1. Stormbringer22

      Bruno

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I think Bruno's potential over Son is just more than Vardy's over Kane.

        Bruno+Vardy +Kane for the winner

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          No KDB?
          Plus that makes getting Salah back a nightmare.

    Kinda stuck here...

    Is it worth to get a -4? Have 1 free transfer.
    Salah+Klich > Bruno+Ziyech

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Can you get Salah back easily though? If yes, then great transfers, if no, then I would advise against it

  7. Jellyfish

    Bench dilemma. Who to play out of the following:

    A) Kilman
    B) Lamptey
    C) Zouma

    Currently playing Lamptey

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Lamptey

    2. bigwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I have Chills over Zouma and playing all three. Who's your other 2 defs?

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Robbo and Konsa

        1. bigwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I'd play Zouma then

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

      Play Zouma

      1. Jellyfish
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        He’s first on my bench

  8. bigwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Fellow Rashford owners, he's captain material this week, right? I'm not sure.

    I went Salah > Rashford last week which didn't pay off, even though Rashford had some glorious chances.

    However, with Salah out it's been turned into a jammy move. Rashford has missed some really easy chances (should've scored that header last week from Bruno).

    Not convinced at all about captaining though, anyone else thinking the same?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I think Rashford captain is as sensible choice as any this week. Go for it

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

      Nope, he’ a my captain. He’s down as a midfielder and can score a hat trick in a Champions League game off the bench. That’s his quality.

      1. bigwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Cheers guys, this is what I wanted to hear I think

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

    Defence: XX, Chilwell (awesome), Taylor (meh), Justin (Pereira back?), Mitchell (will he regain his spot?)

    A) Cancelo
    B) Cresswell
    C) Dias

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A. If Cancelo benched on the odd week, you still have Taylor slotting in, even if he is meh

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

        Yeah but assuming both Justin and Mitchell turn into backups in their respective teams that means Taylor basically is a starter

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

          Guess I will have to transfer out Justin as soon as he loses his place though and thereby turn Taylor into the meh backup once again. Thanks for input

      2. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Definitely not A, if Chilwell is also benched you're done.
        You need a player who plays every match.

      1. Slitherene

        Taylor might not play this week, but plays for a decent team having a decent December. He'll be useful then.

    Thoughts on Salah Son to Bruno KDB?

    Or Mane over KDB?

    2FTs 1.6ITB

    Martinez
    Robo/Kilman/Chilwell
    Salah/Son/Hamez/Grealish
    Kane/DCL/Bamford

    Martin/Reguilon/Mitchell/Stephens

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Bruno + KDB sounds nice. How are you getting Salah back? Salah back in for Kane down the line or...?

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Probably one of Bruno or KDB out, Kane becomes Vardy

  14. Takedog1

    has anybody noticed Mitchell (Crystal Palace ) has went from unknown return date fo fully fit?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, after Roy's press conference yesterday confirming he is fit

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      big Q is will he play though

      1. Takedog1
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        doubt he will come on for a cameo so id say its worth the chance putting him in the 11 if you have him

  15. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Best replacement for Wilson if he's not fit?

    A) Bamford
    B) Antonio

    1. jb1985
      • 2 Years

      B - If fit

  16. jb1985
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Done Salah > Bruno for a hit, feel i have to justify that hit by captaining Bruno this week but I have so many good options that are tempting me. Mainly Jack as I thought he played well during the internationals and showed what type of threat he can be.

    Captain:

    A) Bruno
    B) Grealish
    C) Ziyech
    D) DCL

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      If you've done Salah > Bruno for a hit, there should be no doubts about captaining Bruno

  17. corderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    1. KDB4PREZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C most exciting imo but geez no idea who scores more

    3. Slitherene

      Not B

  18. Rinseboy
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Best option this week?
    A - Play Foden
    B - Play Lamptey
    C - Foden to Jota for a -4 (bench Lamptey)

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  19. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Soucek > Grealish -4 is worth it, surely right?

    1. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not really

    2. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Grealish is a premium by itself-4for it is a big call though imo,can it wait another week?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It could I suppose.

        Would you bring in KdB this week for Salah or Grealish? I can do KdB in next week instead and float the cash.

        1. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          KDB is a bit to early I guess, rather would do grealish. But because I am a salah mad man I am not going to do anything and hope he starts against the seagulls.....but that is just my opinion

        2. Hot Fuzz
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Anything suppose to be nothing bloody autocorect

    3. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Should be long term

    4. KDB4PREZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’d look at it as a long term xfr and do in a heartbeat tbh

    5. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      YES.

    6. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Wouldn't say surely. Soucek against shu seems like a decent fixture.

      Hey guys, to give you a bit of background on myself. I'm a British 28 YO living in Canada. I've had highest ranks of 18th in FPL, 25th in Sky and 2nd in the Mirror (before it sadly ended). I've also won money in Ultimate FPL when that was a thing and did fairly well (top 100) in the Daily Mail FF before that finished.
      I took a hiatus from FPL content etc but am finding it a lot of fun again especially tuning into guys like FPL Wire, FPL Family, Andy and of course the Scoutcast. My first ever FPL Deadline stream will be tomorrow night and I hope to be as informative and chill as them. Hopefully see a few of you there.
      The time of the stream will be 11 hours from the time of this post (8pm UK, 1pm Canadian Rockies and 3pm USA NY).

      TL:DR - A mint, new FPL livestream is occurring in 11 hours time, be there or be square!

        Its not like they've been doing well anyways. Bruno somehow keeps on scoring

      4. BERGKOP

        Quite possibly and WBA haven't been woeful at times

      RP from first page. Morning all

      This is how I’m looking after playing my FT. G2G or is KDB over Son worth a hit (much better stats recently and will want him anyway)?

      A) G2G
      B) Son > KDB (-4)

      0FT 0.1itb
      Martinez
      Robbo*, Chilwell, Cresswell
      Bruno, Son*, Ziyech, Grealish
      Kane, DCL, Bamford
      (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

      Issue I have is that I know it’s sensible to wait and not do the -4 but I have exact cash to do the move so will be priced out with one more price change. KDB shouldn’t go up should he?

      Thanks!

      I have two transfer options for this GW.

      A) Salah + Son + Brewster -> Fernandes + Ziyech + Bamford (-4, 1.1 ITB)
      C) Salah + Son + Kane -> Fernandes + KDB + Vardy (-4, 0.1 ITB)

      Any thoughts?
