Wasteful Werner shows promising signs for FPL owners in Chelsea win

NEWCASTLE 0-2 CHELSEA

  • Goals: Federico Fernandez (£4.9m) own goal, Tammy Abraham (£7.2m)
  • Assists: Mason Mount (£6.8m), Timo Werner (£9.5m)
  • Bonus: Abraham x3, Reece James (£5.0m) x2, Ben Chilwell (£6.0m) x1

Wern your points

Abraham slots past Karl Darlow from Timo Werner’s pass

Saturday afternoon was a bittersweet watch for Timo Werner (£9.5m) owners. The German forward was heavily involved in Chelsea’s attacking display at Newcastle but only earned an assist in the 2-0 victory.

The striker had a shot on target saved by the busy Karl Darlow (£5.0m) after just three minutes.

In the 15th minute, Werner’s direct running led to him flashing a low cross right through the six-yard box, with Tammy Abraham (£7.2m) unable to reach the ball in time to convert.

Werner was then the player who failed to make contact with a Reece James (£5.0m) cross, after the right-back was set into space by a wonderful Hakim Ziyech (£8.2m) flick.

Just before the half-hour mark Werner squandered a big chance, having been set through by Abraham after Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m) won the ball back near the Newcastle box.

After half time, Werner robbed the ball from substitute Fabian Schar (£4.9m), who had replaced the injured Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m).

The German appeared caught in two minds between shooting and passing on getting into the box, with his weak attempted assist for a Ziyech tap-in cleared by the scrambling Magpies backline.

Another Chelsea break saw Abraham go for goal amid a mass of Newcastle bodies when he could have played Werner in, though the ex-Leipzig attacker did not take it to heart as he set up the England striker for Chelsea’s second.

“I always felt that the real danger moments for us could be on transition and counter-attack. Timo [Werner] showed that two or three times in the first half and he shows that for Tammy [Abraham’s] goal.” – Frank Lampard

A scintallting run from inside his own half saw Werner slip Abraham in on goal, with the £7.2m man beating Darlow with a low shot that hit the right-hand post before going in.

Despite possibly frustrating owners and those who captained him, Werner’s involvement is undoubtedly a positive for the coming Gameweeks.

“He had a couple of chances, to be fair to Timo. He was a real threat for us throughout the game. The pace in which he travelled with the ball was something special.” – Frank Lampard

Werner did put the ball in the back of the net just before being substituted but that goal – assisted by Ziyech – was correctly ruled out for offside.

Hakim down

Ziyech (left) was a constant menace for the Newcastle defence

While Werner eventually got on the ‘FPL scoresheet’, Ziyech owners had to settle for a points tally of three.

The Moroccan magician came close to an assist from a delicious whipped cross in the first half but Abraham headed straight at Darlow from close range.

Ziyech would also have had a simple finish into an open goal had Werner been able to find him in that passage of play early in the second period.

Only Mason Mount (£6.8m) made more successful passes in the final third than the former Ajax man.

It was the England midfielder who assisted Chelsea’s opener, having been slipped the ball by Werner on the right-hand side of the pitch after a short-corner routine.

Mount’s low cross was turned into the by Newcastle defender Federico Fernandez, who could not sort his feet out under pressure from Ben Chilwell (£6.0m).

Defence on the Mend

Rudiger deputised for Thiago Silva at centre-back

It is now four clean sheets in six Gameweeks for G (£5.1m) and the Chelsea defence.

Thiago Silva (£5.5m) was given Gameweek 9 off following his excursions with Brazil. Deputy Antonio Rudiger (£4.5m) could hardly have asked for a better game to start in, with Newcastle offering extremely little going forward.

The form of N’Golo Kante (£4.9m), now sitting deep in Lampard’s 4-3-3, is undoubtedly of great help to Chelsea’s clean sheet potential. On the France midfielder, Lampard said:

“His levels are really high. He’s a top midfield player.”

On missing trio Christian Pulisic (£8.2m), Kai Havertz (£8.3m) and Silva, the Chelsea manager stated on Thursday:

“Christian Pulisic is not fit for Newcastle but he’s stepped up his training slowly. It’s been quite a problematic injury so we will stay cautious. Kai Havertz is back, his isolation is over. He tested negative two days ago, so he’s just started training that’s more on his own to get individually some of his fitness back after two weeks at home. Thiago Silva has just landed. He just messaged me this afternoon so he probably won’t be going to Newcastle because of the length of the journey and timings.” – Frank Lampard

Newcastle, same old story

Lascelles competes with Abraham in the air

Despite Bruce saying after the game that the Magpies “had three good opportunities”, Newcastle’s combined ‘expected goals’ total of 0.35 tells a different story.

And on what was already a difficult afternoon, club captain Lascelles was forced to withdraw from the game with injury at the interval. On the issue, Bruce explained:

“It’s a strange one because he hurt his knee just before half time. As he’s run out to try and test his knee, he’s felt his thigh. It was a difficult one. We hope he’s not too bad. We won’t know how bad it is until we see him on Monday.” – Steve Bruce

On Callum Wilson (£6.6m), who missed out with a hamstring injury, Bruce said much the same thing before and after the game:

“I couldn’t risk him today because of the threat of a hamstring injury and being out for the next six weeks. We’ve erred on the side of caution and hope he’s going to be OK for next week.”


Newcastle XI (5-4-1): Darlow; Lewis, Clark, Lascelles (Schar 45′), Fernandez, Manquillo (Almiron 65′); Saint-Maximin (Carroll 73′), S Longstaff, Hayden, J Murphy; Joelinton.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): E Mendy; Chilwell (Emerson 81′), Rudiger, Zouma, R James; Mount, Kanté, Kovacic; Werner (Hudson-Odoi 75′), Abraham, Ziyech (Giroud 86′).

    On a WC and aiming for all regular starters. Is this backline too weak?

    McCarthy - Meslier
    Cancelo - Coufal - Targett - Kilman - Lascelles

    1. Rondon9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Id go with McCarthy + 4.0m

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Ryan burned me with one cheapie so I would really like two playing keepers.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Looks ok, I’d probably have a Chelsea def in there even if it’s Zouma, also lacscelles went off injured at half time yesterday so lee an eye on that

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 25 days ago

        It’s Chilwell or none. Zouma doesn’t offer anything with the tougher fixtures coming up

      2. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Would really like to keep Zouma but my TV is too low to get the attack I want.

        Cheers!

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Foster for Meisler. Lewis for Lascelles.

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Lewis nailed?

        Cheers!

    4. Alan_T
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I think it is fine, if your strategy is to not go too big in defence

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Yep, keeping the cash up front is the plan. Cheers!

    5. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Forster for Meslier
      Webster for Lascelles

      Brighton are much better at the back than their GA.

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Find it hard to trust Brighton but as a rotating fourth Webster might suffice. Cheers!

    6. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Taylor over Lascelles

      1. teneighty
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        The Burnley guy?

  2. Alan_T
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Best combo for a draft league/long term?

    A) Aubameyang & Brewster
    B) Pulisic & Antonio
    C) Jota & Martial

    1. Alan_T
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      ???

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      B

  3. Stoichkov#8
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Would you sell Bruno or Son to get KDB?
    (the other one will be sold soon anyway to get Salah)

    1. Alan_T
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Son

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I would stay far away from kdb. City are awful

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Son

    4. liverpool01
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I've Sold Son to Kdb on wildcard, regretting it now lol.

  4. Catastrophe
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Planning transfers over the next 3 GWs, which do you prefer?

    A) Zouma, Son, Grealish, Justin
    B) Zouma, Son, Rodriguez, Balbuena (-4)
    C) Cancelo, Ziyech, Grealish, Justin (-4)
    D) Cancelo, Ziyech, Rodriguez, Justin (-4)

    Thinking A to keep Son instead of Ziyech as will be losing Kane to get Salah back. But not that keen on Grealish and had also wanted Cancelo in for the good City fixtures.

    Also is Kane (che, ARS) -> Vardy (FUL, shu) worth a -4 for the next two fixtures?

    Cheers

    1. Alan_T
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      A or C for me

      1. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers

  5. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on Kane Bruno to Vardy KDB for free?
    Also, keeping Son.

    1. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Will get Salah but for GW12

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        For who?

        1. Atimis
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Time will tell!

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Considering. Although right now it only looks like swapping one pen taker from A team that is struggeling to score, with another

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Trying to catch the favourable fixtures

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Won't sell Bruno until GW12

  6. IRBOX ⚽
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Are people actually going to go into City against BUR FUL WBA NEW all at the Etihad with 0-1 attackers? KDB Sterling double up is 100% in my team

    1. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Wouldn’t overreact, possibly a def and KDB is enough for now

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      A quarter of your TV on 2 players in a team that has failed to score more than 1 goal for the last 6 weeks? No thanks, one is enough

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Far underperforming their xG. I’m expecting an imminent mauling

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 25 days ago

          They don’t have the same mentality as previous seasons. They will settle for 1-0 or 2-0 wins. I’m on double City defence instead

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Poor teams dictate results.. look at Spurs scoring 6 against an abysmal high line from Hasenhutel and 5 against a 10 man United. Mourinho teams don’t do that. Peps psychology hasn’t changed mate. I’m expecting an 8-0 Watford repeat from last season over the next few GW’s, especially with Kun back

            1. Miggy007
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              You’d want to see more from City, results don’t lie they ain’t scoring the goals so far this season.

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      It's a bit of a waste since you can only C one of them.

      Cancelo, Dias, KDB is better for me.

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Over the course of a season I would agree but not with this fixture line up. Both could average 10-20 points over that period

    4. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      If only they were cheap

    5. DAZZ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Whilst i agree that a double isn’t a bad idea, i’m looking at it differently, i can see them tightening up and i went Cancelo, Dias + KDB on my wildcard. 0 regrets moving forward. I’ll judge if the WC was a success in 4-5 GW’s.

    6. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Shhhhhhhhhhhhh

      If Kev’s ownership goes over 20 I’m blaming you

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        He’s going to be a HUGE differential

    7. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      No City for me

    8. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Planned KDB Sterling double up for those fixtures & sticking to it. The best attacking team for the last 2 years aren't suddenly toothless. I understand why people want to see them return to high scoring form, but I'd rather get them in now.
      From a financial perspective there are enough cheap value players this year that spending big on those two isn't an issue in terms of weakening the overall team.
      Hopefully they'll deliver, I'll benefit from the points, pre price rises & transfer available to focus on other positions. Fixtures are good for long enough to set & forget for weeks.

    9. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Cancelo GW10, KDB Cancelo from GW11. If clicking further, Jesus or Dias to add into GW12/13.

        Think I’m gonna save money ITB to get salah back but thanks for the suggestion 🙂

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      You just need to upgrade Mitchell or Dunne - you could go for someone like Lewis if you want to keep cash itb, or you could bring Cancelo in. Everything else looks fine to me

  9. Peter Ouch

    I got points from my double Chelsea defence
    I got points from konsa
    I got points from son and kane
    But I didn't have Bruno

    So much effort and planning and only one C option equals my whole team

    C is so so unfair

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years

      Your captain is yet to play I guess?

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        My C was Rashford, had him for weeks now but it's the farewell game

    2. Alan_T
      • 4 Years

      You knew full well the risks of not owning Bruno this week

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        He was good, he created and he could have scored more but only if the var was used right, if only

    3. The Knights Template

      The other C option is to reinsert it into your surname.

    For next week

    Captain Bruno (vs Sou away) or
    KDB (vs Burnley at home)

    KDB better fixture but Bruno better form ...

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      KdB. I expect City to respond after that defeat.

      1. Jolly Good
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Thought the same thing after Leicester 2-5 defeat and they played out a 1-1 draw against Leeds

        1. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Away from home against a Bielsa coached side. City love playing against Burnley. I see 3/4 goals in that game.

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      KDB

      He's due a haul imo and now is the perfecr time to captain him.

    3. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Bruno. Easily. Saints wont play the low block like WBA, should leave space for United. Burnley will play the low block and are very good at it.

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        CIiy have outscored them 23-1 in the last 6 meetings between them, scoring 5 each of the last 3 times they have come to Etihad.

        1. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          That's all well and good but they were very free scoring in those seasons, this season they have only scored more than one goal twice and that was in GW2 and 3 this season. They dont look like scoring many.

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 months, 25 days ago

          If football worked like that City would have destroyed West Ham 5-0 back in GW6.

          I believe they'll do well but I wouldn't use that logic to support it.

    Fellow wildcarders who loaded up with Man City. Don’t worry. They can laugh at our expense all they like, it’s the right decision, the fixtures speak for themselves and at the end of the day, Aguero+Sterling returning will give them a monumental boost.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I'm just confused at the reactions on here, surely nobody expected much against Spurs (A)?

      1. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        I didn’t bring them in for Spurs away. I brought them in for the near future. I didnt play a free hit. I cant sit here and say I expected a clean sheet away to Spurs.

    2. HVT
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      You think Aguero will start?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Yes of course. Sterling Aguero and Mahrez/Torres with KDB behind. These 4 fixtures coming up, im telling you the free scoring will return

        1. HVT
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Love your optimism, I’m not as sure as you tho!

          Aguero looked chunky to me when they showed him on the bench last night.

  13. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Which combo is better

    A. Salah and Vardy (4pt hit req’d)
    B. KDB and Kane

    Assume all players are fit to play.

    1. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      B

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Prefer KFC zinger combo

      1. smix
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Going KDB & Vardy coz of the fixtures. Got Jota for Pool cover

  14. HVT
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Are either of Jesus/Aguero worth considering?

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      No chance

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I wouldn't even bother.

      I think it's KDB and maybe Sterling with a defender.

      1. HVT
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Yea fair enough, just checking is Kun just a nostalgia pick at this stage?

    3. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Depends on desperation levels

      1. HVT
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Started playing the ‘upside chasing’ game from yesterday and this feeds into it somewhat!

    4. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Jesus is actually.

      He will probably play about 70% of the time now and his numbers over the years are amazing for 9.3.

    5. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Not with Vardy/Kane/DCL right now. Once Aguero is fit there will be a clamour to get him in but need to see what hes got

      1. HVT
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Kane would be the makeweight if I thought 1 was nailed.

  15. Maddamotha
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    For people with Kane. Are you getting rid for the likes of Vardy, or still holding?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Probably getting rid unless some other problem occurs.

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Let us see Vardy against Pool

    3. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Wanna get Vardy now

    4. tokara
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I am holding, for steady stream of points

    5. Van der Faart
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Keeping. 18 goals in just over 30 games v the next 3 opponents. Captaining v Arsenal

    6. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Probably keeping. He's in brilliant form, loves London derbies and I have too much value attached to him.

      1. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        He was bad yesterday tbh

        1. InterUranus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          From an FPL perspective. As a footballer his performance was class.

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Maybe as a number 8, surely not as a striker, his touches inside the box were awful

          2. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            This.

        2. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          In what respect was he bad? FPL or did you actually think he had a bad game?

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            If we consider him as a striker, he had a bad game yesterday in my opinion

            1. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              You don’t know footballer. This is a terrible take

            2. JIMMY764
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              He was unplayable.

        3. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          He looked good to me, in the highlights. He's central to how they play on the counter, on pens and has just 1 blank in 9 games

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            I can agree, and I would pay 8.0 for him being a mid, just couldn’t really treat him as a striker yesterday, especially over 10.0 one

            1. WE GO FOR IT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              You have to be kidding. Yesterday was one game. And he still got an assist!

    7. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I'm thinking of Kane to Vardy for his next few, just think with the comparison in fixtures Vardy will out score him.
      Also frees up a bit of funds that I need to get KDB in.

      Kane & Foden to Vardy & KDB (-4)

  16. tokara
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Next gw, robertson + jim to vardy + 4.5m fot -4, is it worth it?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Not for me

    2. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      No

  17. smix
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Son & Kane to KDB(c) & Vardy for a hit ?

    1. HVT
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Thinking same, it’s the Son move that worries me most

      1. smix
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Hmmm. Could go Fernandes instead of Son too

  18. abhirup780
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Grealish-KDB-Sterling-Son-DCL-Bamford-Vardy for next 2 GW? Have 1.1 in bank so can do Sterling to Salah.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Yessireee

  19. Red Red Robins
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Morning all, how was Ziyech yesterday? Was he getting crosses in from deep or was he in the box alot?
    With James crossing im hoping Ziyech is further forward

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      What are you talking about, it's night time!

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      He will get a lot of assists if Tammy and Timo can convert those.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      He looked great.

      Unlucky to not get assists.

      Deep crosses and free kicks etc.

    4. Red Red Robins

      Thanks for your replies

  20. Vazza

    Which combo is better

    A. Salah and Vardy (4pt hit req’d)
    B. KDB and Kane

    Assume all players are fit to play..

    1. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Too hard to choose 🙁

      1. Vazza
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 25 days ago

        That’s probably the correct answer

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I'd go KDB and Vardy with money invested elsewhere

  21. Arcaddde
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Starting to think I should save myself £2m and bring Abrahams in for Werner?!? (As ridiculous as that sounds)

    1. Vazza
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I was also thinking the same

  22. Hutchiniho
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Drop one of these for Vardy.
    (Money in the bank)
    Grealish, Ziyech or DCL?

    Was going to be DCL but thinking one of the others

  23. farmerfat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Is Werner to Vardy a decent move?
    Not in a rush to get Salah back because I have Mane, can hold off for a week or two.

  24. Darragh82
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 24 days ago

    Yes or no, Kane to KDB (have son)
    Why is KDB at 11.6 when he has only returned in 2 game weeks??
    Still a differential too.
    I thought he would have dropped in value.
    Anyway, those fixtures are too tasty to not have one city attacker

  25. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Martinez - Forster
    Robbo - Zouma - Targett - Kilman - Lamptey
    Son - Bruno - Jrod - Barkley - Soucek
    Kane - DCL - Adams

    1FT, 3.3ITB - hadn't really considered Vardy before but have just seen Leicester's upcoming fixtures! Will probably deal with defence next week.

    A) Son > KDB
    B) Kane & Jrod > Vardy & KDB (-4)
    C) Kane & Barkley > Watkins & KDB (-4)

  26. Hi Ho Silver
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 months, 22 days ago

    0.9 ITB
    NGW
    A) Zouma > Cancelo (-0.3m)
    B) Jorginho + Brewster > Che Adams + fodder (-4pts)
    C) Mane > Salah (-0.2m)

    Option B leaves 0.2m to upgrade Mane to Salah the following GW.

    Martinez - Forster
    Zouma - Chillwell - Justin - Mitchell - Burr
    Fernandes - KDB - Mane - Grealish - Jorginho
    DCL - Vardy - Brewster
