Scout Notes

Analysing Fernandes and United’s other FPL assets after narrow West Brom win

Manchester United 1-0 West Bromwich Albion

  • Goals: Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m)
  • Assists: Juan Mata (£5.9m)
  • Bonus: Fernandes x3, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) x2, Victor Lindelof (£4.9m) x1

A twice-taken Bruno Fernandes (£10.7m) penalty was just enough for Manchester United to see off a spirited, if limited, West Brom side.

It was the Red Devils’ first league win at Old Trafford this season, prompting a relief-heavy comment from manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer:

We needed that win at home. It’s never comfortable against players of this quality.

FERNANDES TO THE FORE

Over-hyping the opposition continues to be a Solskjaer trait because the Baggies were organised and committed, but that was generally where their qualities ended.

Then again, there wasn’t much of the good stuff on display from the home side either, with midfielder Fernandes the best of an average lot on the night.

That was the most pleasing Fantasy Premier League (FPL) aspect of the match as the 34.5%-owned midfielder was by far the most popular player on the pitch.

His ownership had been boosted by a Gameweek-leading one million-plus new owners for the West Brom encounter and yet another penalty – seven of his 14 goals for the club have come from the spot – meant he produced a second straight double-digit return for his managers old and new.

He did require a re-take to score it, however, when his first attempt was saved by the excellent Sam Johnstone (£4.5m), albeit from well off his goal-line.

But the goal was just reward for an influential performance from Fernandes.

He created two of the game’s three big chances, which forced fine saves by Johnstone from Anthony Martial (£8.7m) and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) respectively, and scored from the other one.

Fernandes’ form, and United’s fixtures, are tempting more managers into the midfielder’s fold – he’s currently one of the most popular purchases for Gameweek 10.

And a pleasant mix of matches over the next six Gameweeks, with four games away and the two at home against more progressive opposition in Manchester City and Leeds, should better suit United’s counter-attacking strengths.

NOT SO FORWARD THINKING

Penalties have nourished Fernandes owners through thin times. There’s not a lot of sustenance available for the team’s other attacking options.

On another day and against a rather less inspired keeper, both Martial and Rashford might have found the net.

But the former has had a truly terrible season so far, with more red cards than goals, while Rashford’s last four starts – which have included three stints up front – have produced just one assist.

Solskjaer has handed four starts out of the last five to Juan Mata (£5.9m) and it was the veteran’s cross that drew the handball for Saturday’s penalty award.

The Spaniard now has two assists from those starts, but his lack of pace does the side few favours and his freer role seems to compromise Fernandes’ ability to get forward at times.

Many United fans would rather see the more dynamic Donny van de Beek (£6.7m) given a chance in Mata’s place, a move that the conservative Solskjaer is yet to make, and might not even have contemplated.

The manager did provide an update on another midfielder – Paul Pogba (£7.7m):

Paul got a knock in the last game (for France) and he started feeling it yesterday after the session. Well, he felt it before the session, but he couldn’t carry on. Hopefully, he’ll be okay for Tuesday.

But the only attacking game in town at the moment remains Fernandes. United have had 109 attempts so far this season and just over a fifth (24) have come solely from him.

DEFENSIVE DIVIDENDS

At least the team’s backline is starting to produce points, with two clean sheets (and just two goals conceded) over the last four Gameweeks.

The side’s most popular defender, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m and 9.2%), brought in two bonus points, and eight overall, while Alex Telles (£5.5m) marked his league debut with a solid return for his 1.2% ownership.

United’s schedule is attractive enough to suggest more clean sheets can be kept for the foreseeable future.

But the prospect of attacking returns from the flanks remains remote.

United’s full-backs – including the injured Luke Shaw (£4.8m) – have created nine chances between them this season. 

That’s a total bettered by six defenders on their own, while West Ham’s Ryan Fredericks (£4.3m) can match that tally from just three appearances.

Until Solskjaer risks pushing his wide men further forward, Harry Maguire (£5.4m) is probably the better bet as a consistent attacking threat.

The centre-half’s 13 attempts this season is joint-top among defenders.

As for the Baggies, manager Slaven Bilic was understandably bitter about VAR overturning a penalty award when Fernandes tackled Conor Gallagher (£5.5m):

I’m very disappointed with the result and the decisions from the referee.

But from a Fantasy perspective, the less said about a team with just six goals and one clean sheet from nine games, the better.


Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Fred (McTominay 84); Mata (Cavani 62), Fernandes, Rashford (van de Beek 79); Martial.

West Bromwich Albion XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; Furlong, Bartley, Ivanovic (Krovinovic 79), Ajayi, Townsend; Gallagher, Sawyers, Diangana (Robson-Kanu 62), Pereira; Grant (Robinson 62).

    % chances of Mitchell starting today?

    1. Mane Mane Mane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Very low I’d say, although I gave him in my 11 just on the off chance he does actually start

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      under 5%. PVA is nailed and they have better RB options. Only hope is if they convert PVA to a left mid.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Just back from injury and training this week. PvA available. I expect he starts on the bench and gets limited mins

  2. Eldon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Shocking first 9 gws, think I'm being too patient, starting 11 now looks like this;

    1.6 ITB

    Martinez
    Chilwell - Coufal - Justin - Mitchell
    Sterling - Salah - Barkley - Fernandes
    Vardy - DCL

    Steer - Brewster - Bissouma - Lamptey

    Would you take a hit (-4) to get rid of one of Brewster/Barkley/Mitchell?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yes. I'd do Barkley > Torres.

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Wait for news but yes Barkley your 4th mid needs upgraded

    3. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Barkley to Grealish

  3. Mane Mane Mane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 6 days ago

    What’s the best move?
    A) Son and Kane for KDB and Vardy for a -4 hit?
    Or
    B) Zaha and Kane for Fernandes and Vardy for a -4 hit. (Leaves me with no city players for upcoming fixtures though)

    1. Flynny
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'm thinking A.

      But its a massive gamble isn't it.....

      1. Mane Mane Mane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Huge gamble given son may do well against the big teams on the counter

    2. Eldon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I've prioritised Vardy over KDB for now, until City really get firing I think you could hold off getting them. I'm sticking with Sterling. Son could still deliver.

      1. Mane Mane Mane
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I don’t have a single Man City attacker so feel I need to get one in soon

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I would give Bruno a miss. GW9 was the correct GW for Bruno cap. Kane to Vardy only. Son capitalising on the counter and Kane dropping deep to pull the strings therefore Son should have the higher ceiling Son goals vs Kane assists. Most of Spurs goals involve those two so I would keep at least one of them.

    4. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      A

  4. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Any news on which Wolves player has COVID?

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

      Rumours are Saiss but nothing substantial.

  5. Neevesy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Think I May stick with DCL as captain again. Can see another high scoring game against Leeds.

    It's him or KDB I guess.

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Both teams look great at attacking. DCL could be a good option to captain but there are a few standouts this week

  6. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 6 days ago

    IMO Jota is still a trap especially when I see people transferring him in with weak bench. Thats maddness

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Not sure the bench matters too much. He will come on in the games that he doesn't start.

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I agree. But anyone who got him a few weeks back has done very well out of him and are probably not in a rush to sell right now.

    3. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'm less worried about him due to his ability to do damage quickly off the bench. I have Foden as well which is a completely different matter that needs sorting

      1. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        What are you thinking of doing with Foden?

    4. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I can't see him being benched with that form atm.

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

    Do you see Vardy scoring against Fulham? How many?

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I do. Maybe 2. Hopefully 4.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      It's Fulham so probably.

    3. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Nah cause Fulham will park it up hard, Vardy was meant to score 5/6 against Norwich last season but did nothing.

    4. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      yeah a brace should be on the cards

  8. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Who do you think score more pts over the next 2 gameweeks :

    A. Kane + Vardy + Hamez
    B. Salah + Kane + Wilson (-4)
    C. Salah + Vardy + Wilson (-4)

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      The one with no Wilson

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Cheers.

  9. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    I'm keeping Bruno for now personally. His away performances (and indeed Utd in general) are just too good to ignore.

    So, that leaves me with a big choice to make now...

    Son > KDB

    or

    Son > Salah

    Definitely leaning towards Salah back in. He's a beast and Pool look like they are going to do well despite all the injuries. City on the other hand...

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah Bruno is an easy hold for me. My plan is Son to KDB and will get Salah back in for Bruno in GW12 v Fulham.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I don't have the funds to do Son to Salah but I want KDB for those fixtures regardless.

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

      Liverpool have been outstanding offensively and Salah is in excellent form. Both will do very well IMO.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I agree Bruno is a keep at the moment. Based on current form, it's got to be Salah to come in. Hopefully he gets some min in the Atalanta game.

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Agree with you, rather have Salah atm

  10. The Mantis
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Any changes on this or save? Concern over still owning Wilson, also not having any City assets and also Vardy fixtures...

    £1.4 ITB

    Martinez (Button)
    Bellerin / Cresswell / Chilwell (Kilman / Mitchell)
    Jrod / Bruno / Grealish / Salah (Bissouma)
    Kane / DCL / Wilson

  11. KneejerkJoe
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Best 4,5m defender for short term?

    Would not have to play him every week, comes in for Saiss to cover for Lamptey this week. Might keep him for a while as backup, but theres a chance he will become Trent/Robertson i GW12 if I downgrade Sterling.

    A) Masuaku/Balbuena - AVL (H)
    B) Dann/Clyne/Mitchell - NEW (H)
    C) Holding - WOL (H)
    D) Townsend/Furlong/Ivanovic - SHU (H)
    E) Lewis - CRY (A)
    F) Other

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      A

  12. tibollom
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    What to do here guys, 1 FT and 2.0 ITB...

    Ryan Button
    Robbo Chillwell Lamptey Dallas Ferguson
    KDB Rash Soucek Grealish Ziyech
    DCL KAne Brewster

  13. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Assuming all are fit, would you (c) Vardy, KDB or Salah ?

    Currently have none of these and preferably would (c) the one I bring in.

    Initial plan was Kane to Vardy (c).

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Vardy I think. Fulham are just so bad.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Easily Vardy if I had him.

    3. Lev Yashin
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1) Vardy because it's FUL next.
      2) Salah because LIV are firing even with injuries.
      3) KdB is KdB but MCI are MCI

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Would get Salah in first

  14. quayle99
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Martinez McCarthy
    Robertson Dallas Lamptey Taylor Mitchell
    Fernandes Son Auba Costa Phillips
    Kane DCL Davis

    A. Auba, Costa > KDB Jota
    B. Kane, Costa > Vardy Jota

    C anything else?

    1. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I'd concentrate on Auba Costa (and Phillips) before Kane, so probably A.

      1. quayle99
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        agree, but vardy against fulham is tempting me

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

    Is Salah actually a differential at 27.7% ownership? Incredible scenes.

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      How many of those are dead teams though, I bet the number for active teams is a lot lower.

  16. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    RMT suggests Grealish if the one to bench from this front 8.

    Salah Son Ziyech Grealish Jota
    Kane DCL Bamford

    But it doesn't feel right

    1. KneejerkJoe
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Wont feel right any week with that team.
      Downgrade one player.

    2. james 101
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Christmas is coming though. Bench is useful.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Ew. Why would you give yourself such a horrific bench problem every week.

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Because of the amount of injuries in the league

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          That's not a good answer. You respond to injuries by using transfers not using your bench and wasting team value.

    4. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      With Salah back I would bench Jota

  17. focaccia
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Thoughts on how to get Salah into this team? And when?

    Martinez
    Cancelo - Chilwell - Justin
    Fernandes - KDB - Ziyech - Grealish
    Vardy - DCL - Watkins
    subs: Forster - Soucek - Coufal - Kilman

    Cheers!

    1. KneejerkJoe
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Depending on how much you got in the bank.

      1. focaccia
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        0.5

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      For Bruno in GW12 is my plan.

      1. focaccia
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah. I'm thinking GW12: DCL >Bamford & Fernandes>Salah

  18. Wild Rover
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Aguero Capt next week. You're welcome 🙂

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Would say it depends if he starts the CL game. Wouldn't be confident about him starting two in quick succession after injury.

      1. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I'm hoping that he comes on as sub or goes off early on Weds. Rare opportunity to get him at home to Burnley with 1.2% ownership.

        1. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Wow 1.2% ownership? Had to have a look myself thats crazy so low. I'm still not sold because he's been out injury wise for so long, he needs game time to get up and running - with no recurrances. But again, Aguero could come and steal the show..

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          3 people have him top 10k

          1. El Presidente
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 6 days ago

            The ultimate differential

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

      50% chance he gets benched, 50% he gets a hat-trick!

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Could do both!

  19. beetlejuice
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Need to downgrade Soucek. Who is the best mid up to 4.7?
    Oriol Romeu? Bissouma? Someone else?

    1. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Why are you needing to downgrade? There's no body anywhere near him at that price

      1. beetlejuice
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Here is my team;
        Martinez
        Cancelo | Chillwell | Mitchell | Dallas | Justin
        Salah | Son | Fernandes | Grealish | Soucek
        DCL | Bamford | Jimenez

        I will do Jimenez to Vardy but I am 0.2 short, where can I find the funds?

        Thanks!!

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Justin > West Ham defender?

          1. beetlejuice
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Leicester ve great fixtures and he is kinda attacking. I am planning to play him next 3

        2. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Martinez to McCarthy

          1. beetlejuice
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Villa has great fixtures and did the opposite several weeks ago 🙂

        3. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Jimenez seems the obvious one to downgrade.

          1. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

          I think easy thats Justin. Perriera back in training, Castagne back soon, only has a couple of weeks before he's gone for good.

            Thanks. That few weeks will do for me. And I doubt he can't find a place in Leicester defense.

    Martinez
    Digne Cresswell Chillwell Justin Kilman
    Son Bruno Grealish Rodriguez Zaha
    Kane DCL Bamford

    Want to do Bamford + a mid to Vardy plus 5.6 mid. Who do I lose?

    A. Grealish
    B. Zaha
    C. JRod
    D. Don’t do it.

    And if I do, is Soucek the right choice or?

      Why not go all the way down to a bench fodder mid? Benching headache with that front 8.

      I'd lose Zaha.

    3. beetlejuice
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I would not loose Bamford.
      Digne is great but seems like they ll concede every game, maybe you can downgrade him to Cancelo

  21. DannyDrinkVodka

    2 months, 6 days ago

    2.9 ITB, 0 FT, anything worth a hit? Perhaps Cancelo for Saiss?

    Martinez
    Chilwell Dallas Mitchell
    Bruno Son Ziyech Grealish Foden
    (V)ardy DCL

    Watkins Saiss Lamptey Forster

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

      Mitchell -> Cancelo. Should make the points up and more.

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

        Sorry didn't see Saiss - would go for him if he doesn't play tonight.

  22. Catastrophe
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Help greatly appreciated! Which do you prefer?

    A) Ziyech, 4.6D & 4.6D
    B) Grealish, Zouma & 4.6D
    C) Jota, Zouma & Cancelo

    Torn between A and C - would like to keep Ziyech but C is most balanced but need Jota to consistently start given weak bench.

    Rest of Team:

    Martinez
    Chilwell, X, X
    Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Son, X
    DCL, Bamford

    (Steer, Kilman, Brewster, Mitchell)

    Cheers

      Hello,

      Werner + Foden > Vardy + KDB (-4)

      Worth it? or give Foden another chance?.

      thanks in advance

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

        Very worth it. Though I wonder consider keeping Werner

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

          *would

          1. Old Gregg
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            yes, werner move could backfire. DCL and Bam are my other forwards. I have 6.5m ITB

            Want to keep DCL obvs. Bam maybe.

            thanks though

      2. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I would do it if you plan to cap Vardy & KDB.

        1. Old Gregg
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          thanks. Will capt Vardy.

    11. cigan
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      This is an easy save FT with Wilson returning, right?
      Would you captain Bruno, Mane or DCL?

      Martinez
      Robbo Chilwell Digne
      Mane Bruno Son Grealish
      DCL Adams Wilson
      (Coufal, Mitchell, Bissouma)

    12. DeeGee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Please hellp me with this one.
      Which one to prioritise for GW 10 for -4. Already used my FT for Salah -> Bruno?

      i) Bamford -> Vardy
      ii) JamesRodriguez -> KDB
      iii) Bamford -> Jesus/Aguero?
      iv) Kane -> Vardy this week and JamesRod -> KDB next week

      My current front line:

      Bruno, JamesRod, Grealish, Ziyech, Burke
      DCL, Bamford, Kane

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Probably 4 & cap Vardy. 2 if you think City will bounce back instantly but I just don't rate them at the moment

    13. Ginola
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 6 days ago

      2FT, what moves would you do this week?

      A. Kane, Son > Vardy, KDB
      B. Kane, Stephens > Brewster, KDB (keep Son, forget about Vardy and play 3-5-2)
      C. Kane > Vardy
      D. Son > KDB

      1. Il Capitano
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Probably C, gives you a great captain for next week and a chance to assess City against Burnley before investing in them

      2. Please Answer Me
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        How did Vardy play last night? His next three fixtures look like a no brainer to have him in your team but not sure if he's captain material

        1. cigan
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Barely touched the ball but the whole Leicester team was outplayed. 3-0 was flattering

          He should be alright tho

        2. drughi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          had 2-3 really good actions but it was all liverpool

      3. melvinmbabazi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Rashford and Kane to KDB and Vardy for -4?

        Yes or No

      4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        RMT

        What to do here?

        Martinez (Forster)
        Chilwell Cancelo Coufal(Lamptey)(Neco)
        KDB Fernandes Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
        Vardy(C) DCL Watkins

        1 FT and 2.1 ITB

        I'm not sure if I should do Fernandes to Salah this GW or GW12, I really want to keep Bruno though because I'll lose value on him and it will be hard to get him back for almost 11m
