How Kane, Son and De Bruyne fared in midst of FPL fixture swing

Spurs 2-0 Man City

  • Goals: Son Heung-min (£9.5m), Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m)
  • Assists: Tanguy Ndombèlé (£5.9m), Harry Kane (£11.0m)
  • Bonus points: Hugo Lloris x3 (£5.5m), Son x2, Eric Dier x1 (£4.9m)

THE TOUGH GETS GOING

Top 10k FPL managers refuse to ditch Kane and Son double-up for Gameweek 9

Tottenham Hotspur’s key attacking assets made significant statements in Gameweek 9 as both Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) registered attacking returns against Manchester City.

Both players saw interest in their services wane over the international break as Fantasy Premier League managers considering their increasingly tough upcoming fixtures.

But with arguably the hardest of those out of the way, owners of Kane and Son are likely to feel a lot more encouraged to be holding onto the dynamic duo.

As predicted by his most loyal fans, Son was able to expose Manchester City’s high defensive line in key moments on Saturday evening.

He found space behind the Citizens’ back-line as early as the fifth minute after Tanguy Ndombèlé (£5.9m) played an insightful ball over the top.

That made for a 10-point haul for Son, his fifth double-figure Gameweek score of the 2020/21 campaign. Hugely impressive when you consider that he has produced exactly six of these in each of the last four Premier League seasons.

Meanwhile, Kane put in a man-of-the-match, impressing mostly off the ball with his contribution to holding the ball up and easing pressure on his team-mates, who spent most of the game defending against Manchester City’s large share of possession (65.6%).

“I knew if I was going to drop deep the centre-backs were going to follow me and with Stevie and Sonny running in behind, it worked. My duties were mainly, holding up the ball, trying to buy time, especially when you’re under the cosh a bit. Win fouls and bring others into play. The most important thing is we have runners in behind.” – Harry Kane

That enabled Kane to fulfil more of a creator’s role, as we have become used to this season, assisting Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m) for a 16th attacking return in nine matches.

WHAT ABOUT THE UNDERLYING DATA?

KDB OR NOT DB

Fantasy managers may be experiencing the opposite problem with Manchester City considering they are about to embark on a positive run of games but appear short of go-to attacking assets.

While they recorded their first blank of the season, it was not for lack of trying, as Pep Guardiola’s men dominated possession and the shot count (22 to four).

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) pounced on a loose ball in the box early in the first half, his shot likely to have ended up in the back of the net were it not for an offside Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) getting in the way.

Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) did actually score after a Jesus knock-down, only to see that ruled out for a handball against City’s number nine.

De Bruyne struck wide from the edge of the box in the 50th minute before Ruben Dias (£5.5m) headed the Belgian’s late free-kick straight at Hugo Lloris (£5.5m) when he really should have scored.

The fact that Burnley, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion are three of Manchester City’s next three opponents is cause to believe that those who came close to attacking returns against Spurs can deliver on their promise in the near future.

The return of Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) to full fitness is also worth considering. An additional option for Guardiola can only improve the credentials of the midfield players on offer, although it also increases the risk of rotation for Jesus.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Reguilón, Dier, Alderweireld (Rodon 81′), Aurier; Højbjerg, Sissoko; Bergwijn (Moura 73′), Ndombèlé (Lo Celso 65′), Son Heung-min; Kane.

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; B Silva (Foden 72′), Rodrigo; Torres, De Bruyne, Mahrez (Sterling 72′); Jesus.

    Which move do you prefer?

    A) Kane + Son -> Vardy (C) + Sterling -4
    B) Son + Ziyech -> Salah (C) + Jota -4

    Option A: Vardy would only be a two week punt as I would want Salah for gw12. I know many will avoid Sterling but he could be a massive differential

    Thoughts?

    1. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      On current form, I see no point of making these moves. Just make a transfer on gw12 and get Salah back.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Agree, just Kane to Vardy if you really have to?

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Planning to get a midfield consisting of Salah, KDB, Sterling, Jota and Grealish (3-5-2). Hits are inevitable as I am currently playing a 3-4-3

      2. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Fixture swing?

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Really depends on how Burnley do.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah I guess you're right. One to monitor

    3. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I understand Spurs attackers aren’t popular captaincy options with their fixtures but they really are set and forget for entire season, barring injury

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Don't feel confident in captaining KDB or DCL this week. I would want Vardy Or Salah.

        1. mixology
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Understandable, but KDB (C) locked for me

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            With KDB it's always been a never Captain, never bench. Prefer more explosive option. With Aguero back, he might not take penalties either.

            1. F_Ivanovic
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              I don't buy into that logic. If a player is capable of scoring 250 points a season it doesn't matter if they're less likely than someone else to score a 20 pointer in one GW. You have less of a high ceiling but on average you get the same returns and overall that's going to be equally as good for your FPL team in the long run.

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I like A and the two week punt plan. Let's see how the Olympiacos and Burnley games go though.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah. Plenty of time as no one is rising or dropping atm i

    5. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I would say just Kane to Vardy.
      Ziyech only had 1 blank so should keep BUT if you really want to then Ziyech to Jota as well.

  2. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    No clue why people bring in Chilwell before Spurs, but really don't mind as an owner

    1. ...al
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      He's been rising crazy regardless of fixtures every week, it's impressive

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Similar to people bringing in Cancelo before Spurs. Seems crazy. Would much rather just play a cheapie

    2. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      because it's still over 1m cheaper for a player who is out injured (Trent)

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Would prefer Robertson as the TAA replacement. I brought him in instead of Cancelo for gw9. Would also prefer Cancelo over Chilwell for the upcoming fixtures.

        1. ...al
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Same here, I've had Robertson and Chilwell for week, so welcome rises for sure.

          Cancelo can come in from this week onwards no problem

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Yep. I'm doing Saiss to Cancelo this week as well

        2. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Had Robbo all season
          Have not owned Chilwell yet due to other fires but if selling Trent is makes a lot of sense

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            My point is that I would rather do TAA to Robertson or Cancelo. If you already got those two then yes, Chilwell not a bad option. Just not a good option this week.

            1. F_Ivanovic
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Defenders should be for long term for the most part - who they have next week is irrelevant. If (hypothetically) to show this to the extreme if Chelsea had 1 bad fixture followed by 8 great ones and City had one great one followed by 8 bad ones you'd be foolish to pick Cancelo over Chilwell.

              If you think Chilwell is the best option over the next 8 it makes sense to get him.

    3. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Same as owner but guess good long term move if you have Trent/ Saiss etc

  3. Joggers Nipple
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Salah Grealish Soucek ????/ ????
    Werner DCL Brewster

    A Son KDB (0.5 ish itb)
    B J Rod KDB ( cash for Werner to Vardy and Brewster to 6.4ish later)
    C Son and J Rod ( save FT)

    Thanks for any thoughts

    1. ...al

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Cheers, leaning this way ( means playing one of Soucek/ Dallas/ Brewster every week but hey!) but also overthinking and maybe wait a week. Thanks again

    2. FC Hakkebøf

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Would go A myself
      Soucek and Dallas can rotate most more often than not. Brewster not really an option

  4. Flair

    3 months, 15 days ago

    James Maddison vs. Liverpool

    76% Pass accuracy
    3/3 Accurate long passes
    4 Chances created

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Of course not.

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      And the point you want to make is?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 15 days ago

        He looks interesting, there's a strong FPL asset in there somewhere.

  5. Sarri-ball
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    My plan was

    Werner to vardy
    Next week auba to salah

    Auba been that bad
    Would you sell even with wolves at home this week

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Seems a good plan

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        So give augbam 1 more week? even tho been terribe took him in 2 weeks ago on a wildcard for
        VILLA/leeds/WOLVES

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Ah ok, Auba move first then Vardy move later?

          1. Sarri-ball
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Think if want vardy gota be for fulham at home

    2. ...al
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Auba can go, Werner looks great

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        So forget vardynjust go straight to

        Augbam to salah

        1. ...al
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Vardy could be ok, but Werner looks good too.

          I'd get rid of Aubs yep

  6. Mr. Chimes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 15 days ago

    What’s the more important move?

    A. Get Chilwell
    B. Get any Chelsea cover
    C. Get Bruno

    1. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Depends on rest of squad

      A) for me

    2. ...al
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Probably C

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      C

    4. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      None of these moves are urgent.

      1. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Right now I’m on 67 points with KWP left to play. Kept Salah... I feel like I needed to make these moves a few weeks ago ya know

    5. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      A and B not urgent, C depends on who you are taking out

      1. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Could do straight swap with Salah
        Hit with Son
        -8 for Bruno (which would involve some tough decisions)

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          None of those worth it imo

          1. Mr. Chimes
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 15 days ago

            This is my squad

            Martinez
            Reguilon Robertson KWP
            Salah Son Jack Ziyech
            DCL Kane Bamford

            Fodder McGinn Ayling Mitchell

            Reguilon probably an obvious move but he’s a solid differential back imo. I dunno. Thanks for the input though!

            1. Joggers Nipple
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Nice team, save or Regulion if you must.

    6. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Not C. Hard to believe United will get penalties EVERY week ; I think at some point refs are going to start reacting to the outrage

    7. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Depends on the squad really. If you don't have a premium defender, I'd say Chilwell

      1. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I have Robertson and Reguilon

  7. The Overthinker
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Can't wait to bring in Salah ...
    Team looks incomplete without him

  8. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Kane zaha > kdb Watkins for a hit?

    Bruno son ziyech grealish zaha
    Kane dcl Brewster

    1. ...al
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Zaha can go

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Seems ok moves
      Only other option is Zaha right down and Brewster up?

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Kane out on a hit? No!

  9. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    After this GW plays out would you do the following for a - 4?

    a. Kane & Podence > Vardy & Jota

    or

    b. Rashford & Podence > Bruno & Jota

    Think Vardy v Fulham could be a goal fest.

    Bruno is the player that keeps on giving and dont think the bandwagon is nowhere near over lol.

    Jota well he is has just settled in quite nicely our Reds.

    Comments welcomed 😉

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I would do just Kane to Vardy.
      I dont know enough about Lpool and Jota with Salah back? In the last 4 games hes basically played 90 mins so maybe yes?

    2. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Bruno and United’s luck has to run out ; they ain’t doing great by any eye test

    3. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Thanks lads,

      Think I'll run with A for now and see how that goes.

      Vardy should run riot V Fulham you would hope lol

    that Robbo haul was unexpected..! I almost took him out for Cancelo but went with a midfielder instead.

    How do I bring KDB in this team?

    Please help

        2nd question: Salah to KDB

    2. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Jrod, Ziyech > KDB, JWP (-4)?

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        As i see it, JWP should get around the same points as James, and KDB is a big upgrade to Ziyech

          • 11 Years

          What score Eve vs Leeds?
          Spurs probably missing Aldy.

          1. GuenDoozy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Leeds has been good defensively.
            I can still see Mourinho managing to keep it tight.
            KDB (c) as well forgot to mention, and JWP is on all set pieces + penalities (pens atleast till Ings is back)

            Strongly considering it, and this is my only way to get in a city attacker

          2. GuenDoozy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Team for reference:
            Martinez

      What do we think are the chances that West Ham switch to a back 4 and Ualu is dropped?

      1. JasonG123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Masuaku is dropped.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Small chance but this is what makes Coufal a better pick

      3. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Low chance since they're doing so well with the back five.

        Cresswell & Masuaku compliment eachother well. Neither is suited to a lone LB role either. Moyes loves Masuaku.

          wouldn’t Cresswell be the left back ?

      Fair enough, Ziyech has Leeds too so up to you.
      I got him last GW for a hit and might sell myself.

      Rashford to Fernandes or Salah? 1FT

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        If Salah is fit, then the answeris pretty obvious. If he is not fit I'd still pick Sterling over Fernandes

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Salah

      3. Areyouthereyet
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Yea will wait on Salah news. Team feels incomplete without him!

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        A good thing he blanked vs Pool. Hopefully people will be hesitant to bring him in, so that he won't rise before we get more information

      2. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I'm not even considering Vardy one bit. Despite being a stat buster his stats are worse than usual. He doesn't necessarily perform significantly better vs bad teams. And it's only 3 great fixtures before the fixtures turn a bit sour and I'll be thinking of getting rid.

        The potential for him to miss a week with his injury problems is just one more reason to avoid. I'm convinced he's a trap that everyone is falling for.

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Vardy loves to play buttom placed teams. Hardly a trap imo.

      Thoughts on this team? 2ft 0.9itb.

      --Martinez
      --Kwp--Robbo--Chilwell
      --Grealish--JRod--Bruno--Salah
      --Kane--Bam--DCL

      --Nyland--Mitchell--Lamptey--Burke.

      a) Lamptey+Salah to Cancelo+KDB
      b) Something better maybe?

      Thanks all.

        Salah playing GW10 would change your mind?

      2. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Salah might be ready for the Brighton game? Can you do Kane + Lamptey/KWP -> Vardy + Cancelo?

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Dump Bruno get KDB

    7. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I can do Lamptey to Cancelo for free, Y or N?

      Martinez
      Chillwell Cresswell Lamptey
      Bruno Son Grealish KDB
      Kane DCL Bamford

    8. Gun gun

      Guys need some help. If salah is fit.

      Will you sell kane for vardy for Ft
      And -4 for son to salah?

      Or jus do kane to vardy?

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Just Kane to Vardy

        Let's see how Salah performs, their could be drop in form like Mane.

    9. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Had Fernandes as a placeholder over Salah on GW9 WC but not sure what to do now..

      Also Bruno is 10.8 so that would be 0.2 lost, can't lose Vardy atm either..

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Fernandes to Salah for sure

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          If fit*

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Skip Salah for couple of weeks

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Why?

      Lamptey will play against saints or not?

        yes

    11. Trophé Mourinho

      Arsenal are essentially Burnley at this point, but without the goals

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Do Burnley score goals?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          😀 Arsenal and ManU both are on -1 goal difference nine weeks in. Shocking, and most of ManUs goals came from pens.

          1. TorresMagic™

            Man City on -1 too.

    12. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Early thoughts on this lot?

      Martínez (Forster)
      Coufal, Chilwell, Cancelo (Lamptey) (Mitchell)
      Grealish, Fernandes, Ziyech, Son (Burke)
      Kane, Jiménez, Calvert-Lewin

      Aim to leave the defence alone so moves are just for attack.

      Doubt I'll save with Jimmy and could go up to a -12 😯

      Cheers for any ideas

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Ziyech to Jota and Jimenez to Vardy possible?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Can do Jim to Vardy

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1.9 in bank

        1. ppv
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Jim to Vardy looks good means no Salah or City though

        2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Looks good imo

      3. ppv
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Looks a decent team. How much ITB?

      4. seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        How about:

        Kane + Ziyech -> Werner + KDB?

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Oops I didn't see Jimenez.

      5. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Jiminez to Vardy or downgrade him to afford 'someone' to KDB/ Salah if you feel them needed?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Yeah, the -12 would cover those lol.
          Kane may get the boot ❓

          1. Joggers Nipple
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Kane out has to a be a personal choice I feel, no one has the right answer. A great player whos scored points but just saying no is also short sighted, having 2 Spurs is a consideration plus how you use that cash to better/ change the team

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Yeah, one for Friday.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Cheers all, midweek games might help along with an injury.

      7. Fantasy Gold
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Wait until Friday.

    13. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Who is the midfielder you would get as priority other than Salah, Grealish, Ziyech, Bruno?

      KDB? But City not firing!!
      Son can wait few weeks I guess...
      Anyone else?

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Son

      2. Denver Omelette
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Zaha got some good fixtures

      3. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        City midfielder is the only options

        Or you can take a punt on Jota

    14. Denver Omelette
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Is it mental to keep Maupay? Bamford immidiate fixtures not lookin sweet, can't get watkins cause already triple villa, Wilson and Antonio injured. Adams also an option

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Bamford seems fixture proof, just get him

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Uh. Other than against 10 men of Arsenal

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Is Everton really bad?

        1. Denver Omelette
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          I think so CS-wise...

    15. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I know this sounds a bit crazy but I need to find a little money from somewhere to get Salah without losing Fernandes but would do Chilwell to Dias to do it?(Have Cancelo)

      Allows me to do Ziyech, DCL to Salah, Bamford for GW12 or otherwise later on Vardy, Riedewald to Brewster,Salah

      Otherwise could just do simple Bruno to Salah but after this week I feel I much prefer Bruno to Vardy long term and it will be hard to get him back for 10.8

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Wait a week or 2 and do Bruno to Salah?

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          That was the plan yeah
          Just not sure about losing him and keeping Vardy long term as Bruno is rising like crazy atm and might be touching 11m soon

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Lose Bruno

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Cheers, might be the way to go

    16. Mweene
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I assume those selling Kane are chasing big points in their mini leagues?

      The man is on fire this season and form is trumping fixtures massively this season, especially with the lack of home advantage.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Losing Kane is mental

      2. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I'm just chasing points for next 4 games. If it works, good. If it doesn't work, no issue.

      3. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I dont have both Son and Kane, guess if you own both getting off one might (?) make sense to some

      4. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Who's selling him.

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Some doing Kane to Vardy, purely to cap Vardy vs Fulham I think

    17. Tiki-Taka
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Bruno to KDB? I don't want to lose Son

      Ziyech / Grealish / Zaha / Son / Bruno
      DCL / Kane / Brewster

      2.1m in bank

      1. Tiki-Taka
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        with idea to bank transfer next week and do Zaha/Kane >>> Salah/Bamford for free GW12

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          This seems better

          1. Tiki-Taka
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            those would be the GW11/12 transfers, so I still have this GW transfer to play with and feel like I need KDB for the run/captain this week

      2. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I would. United looked clueless for most of the WBA game

      Has Mitchel lost his place ?
      Thinking Mitchel/ kilman > cancelo
      &
      James Rodriguez > kdb for a -4

        1. Akshatjazz
          • 1 Year

          So If he not included in the playing XI is taking Mitchel is a good option ?

    19. huwwilliams_
      • 6 Years

      Who do we reckon scores more points next 2 GWs Salah BHA (a) WOL (h) or Sterling BUR (h) FUL (h). I wanna get KDB regardless not sure if it'll be a straight swap sterling for KDB this GW or transfer out salah for KDB this gameweek before transferring salah back in for sterling GW12 when liverpool play fulham. Any thoughts appreciated

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Salah
