Promising Raphinha can exploit Digne absence as Leeds visit Everton

The Gameweek 10 deadline is now upon us which gives us the opportunity to have a look at some other differential options.

This time, we’ve got routes into Manchester City and Leeds United’s attacks, plus Manchester United’s defence.

As always, to qualify, the player must have an ownership of 5% or less at the time of writing.

Raphinha

  • FPL ownership: 0.1%
  • Price: £5.4m
  • GW10-14 fixtures: eve | che | WHU | NEW | mun

Raphinha (£5.4m) has had to be patient since his deadline day move from Rennes, but finally made his first start against Arsenal last time out.

Operating on the right of Leeds United’s 4-1-4-1 setup, the Brazilian looked lively throughout. 

Though he lacked an end product, he showed his quality in flashes and provided some eye-catching moments, producing four shots, four penalty area touches and the highest expected assist (xA) total of any player on the pitch. It was an impressive full debut for the 23-year-old who saw out the full 90 minutes and almost capped the day with a late winner.

His performances in France certainly suggest he can thrive in England, as he helped Rennes to qualify for the Champions League last season, contributing a combined eight goals and assists in 22 Ligue 1 appearances. 

Whites head coach Marcelo Bielsa will know, of course, that he may be able to target Everton’s left-flank this weekend, knowing that Lucas Digne (£6.2m) will sit out after suffering an ankle ligament injury in training. That could mean the inexperienced Niels Nkounkou (£4.0m) steps into a defence which has now conceded two or more goals in six straight Premier League matches, which further boosts Raphinha’s appeal. 

Leeds could count themselves highly unlucky not to have scored against Arsenal last weekend, but will take encouragement from their performance. The signs are good though, and Raphinha should only get better as he settles into his new surroundings.

Raheem Sterling

  • FPL ownership: 4.7%
  • Price: £11.5m
  • GW10-14 fixtures: BUR | FUL | mun | WBA | sou

England forward Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) has gone from strength-to-strength during his time at Manchester City, netting 31, 25 and 23 goals in his last three seasons.

He is yet to hit those heights this term, but has enjoyed a reasonably productive start, scoring five times in all competitions despite the Citizens’ well documented troubles in front of goal.

Against Olympiakos on Wednesday night, Pep Guardiola made several tactical tweaks in an attempt to rejuvenate his faltering attack. The wingers, who played on their stronger footed sides, were positioned closer to Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) with the full-backs providing the width. It resulted in them looking sharper than they have done in weeks, with Sterling providing the assist for Phil Foden’s (£6.5m) winner. 

We’ve seen the wingers playing on their natural sides in Europe on a couple of occasions now, is the Premier League next?

Saturday’s opponents Burnley were dealt a huge blow earlier this week with the news that influential keeper Nick Pope (£5.4m) looks set to miss out. With home games against Fulham and West Bromwich Albion to follow, either side of the Manchester derby, City now have the opportunity to kick start their season, and if they are to find that rhythm their assets have the potential to rack up huge individual hauls.

Sterling is an intriguing differential ahead of City’s fixture swing, and is perhaps an overlooked pick for the armband in Gameweek 10.

Alex Telles

  • FPL ownership: 1.6%
  • Price: £5.5m
  • GW10-14 fixtures: sou | whu | MCI | shu | LEE

After making his first Premier League start against West Bromwich Albion last weekend, Alex Telles (£5.5m) is at long last ready to make his debut in this column.

The Brazilian completed his move from Porto to Manchester United in the summer, but has had a stop-start beginning to his Old Trafford career after testing positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) last month.

However, the 27-year-old has now started back-to-back matches for his new club and impressed in both, particularly with his delivery from wide areas. Against the Baggies, Telles served up seven crosses in total, which was more than any other player on the pitch. He also had the second highest number of touches in the final third and registered two shots, which are encouraging numbers. 

He then built on that performance against Istanbul Basaksehir in midweek, which is where he really caught the eye. One of the standout performers on the night, Telles created four goalscoring chances and was instrumental in The Red Devils first two goals.

In the absence of Luke Shaw (£4.8m), Telles is expected to get an extended run in the starting XI, and could become a major asset down United’s left-flank. Given how focused they are down that side, he has the potential to be one of the best defensive assets in the game, and could be a huge differential for those willing to invest early.

    Start Wilson or Watkins?

    1. Mornar Bar
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Wilson

      • Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        why not both? both on penalties

    2. mynameisq

      This Pope news is very reminiscent of the James Rodriguez incident earlier in the season. All the comments I'm seeing are assuming he's definitely out but Dyche's comments literally say he will make the decision not the doctor and that it's touch and go

      Unless I've missed something this looks like a 50/50

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

        Pope to play and have a blinder and walk away with 3 bonus points would be the dream (for me anyway).

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

        It's a strange quote that reads one way and then somewhat backtracks

      3. avfc82

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Very good point mate, it isn't definite.

      4. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        It is a little bit weird having a manager make a call on head injuries in 2020 though...

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

          Weird? It's downright dangerous. We know how little managers can care for players' long term health.

          1. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Oh yeah absolutely, I understated.

        2. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          100% but dyche if any manager strikes me as one that would not ignore medical advice, maybe I'm being harsh but he's a bit more of a man's man type that it Pope seems fine will put him out

      5. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Managers can’t make a call on a concussion.. Dyche has confirmed he is likely to be out

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

          That's what I thought too but he hasn't confirmed anything from the quotes "he's more touch and go I might have to make a call on that instead of the doctor"

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

          he said its "touch and go".

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

        agreed

        1. Fantasy Gold
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          That’s not what Dyche meant.

          I read it as ‘even if the doctor clears him to play, I’ll probably still tell him to rest’.

          Probably thinks it’s a good time for him to sit out as he doesn’t expect anything from this game anyway.

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

            Thanks for clearing up, you've got added context that I've not seen anywhere else

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

              Reading it again though unless the scout tweets are paraphrasing or in a weird order it doesn't sound like you're right

      7. Carefree Crew
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        This is what Dyche said:

        Popey unfortunately won't play at this stage, we are waiting on some clearance so there is a chance, because of the knock he received to his head."

        On Nick Pope's injury

        "We are getting him checked out to safeguard him by the rules.

        "He was very unlucky, he made a brilliant save and got a clunk on the head, and had a couple of stitches so we have to get that checked out.

        "I don't think that is going to affect him too much.

      Well Foden might not play, Torres might not play, already got 2 X Liv so not doing Jota, can anyone suggest a mid for £7.2m or less or else I play 10 (already used my 2 free transfers)

      Hi all, hope you’ve been enjoying these columns so far this season.

      We’ve had a bit of bad luck with injuries (Pulisic, Aguero, Greenwood, Jesus…), a few bad picks (Struijk, Alli!), but hopefully some good ones too.

      Here’s a rundown of who we’ve included to date.

      GW10: Raphinha, Sterling, Telles
      GW9: Cancelo, Targett, van Aanholt
      GW8: Adams, Fornals, Mount
      GW7: Bowen, Meslier, Pulisic
      GW6: Aguero, Lookman, Struijk
      GW5: Greenwood, Guaita, Watkins
      GW4: Mahrez, Reguilon, Trossard
      GW3: Jesus, Pereira, Wood
      GW2: Castagne, Fraser, Sterling
      GW1: Alli, Pulisic, Ward-Prowse

      Feedback welcome as always, and GL in GW10, it’s gonna be a good 'un!

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

        Do you keep a record of how they have performed anywhere easy to access? Would be cool to have their scores maybe in brackets next to them.

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah, the picks are generally based on 5 GW's, so it should be easy enough to tally up. I haven't got time to do that right now mate, but will do it for sure.

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

            Didn't want to create extra work for you and thought they were only one week punts so would be a bit easier to keep a track of performance and even have a weekly total score (a bit like Lawro's predictions on BBC Sport)

            1. avfc82
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Some are one week punts, but they generally tend to be a bit longer, as nobody really has the luxury to bring in these types of player for just one game.

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

            Would be interested in to see this

    7. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Glad this article notes the impact of proper full backs on Sterling. It's absolutely fundamental to his ability to get into the right positions.

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

        Think Mendy needs to start to hold the width for Sterling to really flourish

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

        He looked great against Olympiacos with Mendy stretching play, if Cancelo comes back it certainly doesn't look as ideal.

    8. DagheMunegu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Anyone please ? 🙂

      TAA Ziyech Kane to Coufal KDB Vardy -8 ?
      Yes or no ?

    9. tommo1989
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Start 3 out of Zouma, Reece James, Bellerin, Justin?

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Would go with just 1 Chelsea to hedge your bet.

        1. tommo1989
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yeah I’ve currently got Zouma first sub as can see James exploiting the space Reguilon leaves but who knows?

      2. NO SALAH
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        James, Bellerin and Justin. Zouma first sub

    10. nicecat
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      McCarthy . Ryan
      Robertson . Keane . Justin . Kilman . Mitchell
      Sterling . Bruno . Zaha . Jota . Bissouma
      Kane . DCL . Antonio

      Just did Zaha > Ziyech.
      Is Kane > Vardy worth a hit? Any other good options?

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I think you can hold that as you don't have Son.

    11. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Someone talk me out of this; although annoyingly I've been weighing it up in my head and it kind of makes sense.

      Kane & Son > DCL & KDB/Sterling (-8).

      Theory behind KDB/Sterling is the whole Man City fixtures over form argument.

      Theory being with DCL is that I think he's a great pick the next two weeks and he can get on the score-sheet against Chelsea and Leicester the following two.

      I also don't have him and everyone else seems to.

      Hold me.

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

        I guess you can't do Son to Sterling/KDB because of lacks of funds So Instead try Kane to Vardy

        1. NETFLIX & CHILWELL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          £0.1m short for Kane > Vardy and Son > Sterling.

    12. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Any chance Vicente 'Garbage' Guaita gets something tonight?

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

        0-0 incoming

      2. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Absolutely. Newcastle can be pretty toothless at times. Wilson coming back from injury too so not sure how he'll get on.

        Is Guaita really that bad?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          0 cs over a sea of great fixtures from 3-9 so far...

      3. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Surely they keep a clean sheet soon.

      4. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Only if u take him out

      5. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Very high chance as I have got Wilson in my team

      6. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Nope, Wilson is fit.

    13. Aladdin Sané
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A) Kane to Vardy
      B) Kane and Son to Vardy and KDB (-4)
      C) Hold

      1. Flair

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Anything worth a -4? Excited (and petrified) about Sterling captaincy.

      Martinez
      Chilwell-Dias-Dallas
      KDB-Sterling(C)-Bruno-Grealish
      DCL-Bamford-Maupay

      Maupay to go next week for Watkins, Antonio or Adams

    15. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Narrowed it down to these choices for this GW. I can see all working out but equally backfiring so looking to the wisdom of the FFS crowd!

      A) Roll FT - pray that none of Salah, KDB, Vardy haul too majorly
      B) Kane > Vardy (FT) - dullard move but I do get that it is FUL but the thought of taking out a 'form of his life' Kane is scary
      C) Kane, Son > Vardy, KDB (-4) - the "fixtures move" - but the thought of taking out the in-form top scorers in their positions...
      D) Son, Ziyech > KDB, Jota (-4) - yes... Ziyech is a great player but will he get more points (TOT, LEE, eve) than Jota (bha, WOL, ful) over the next few? Not convinced!
      E) Son, Cresswell > KDB, Coufal (-4)

      1FT 2.3itb
      Martinez
      Robbo, Chilwell, Cresswell
      Bruno, Son*, Ziyech*, Grealish
      Kane*, DCL, Bamford
      (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

      Thanks all and GL!

        Similar situation here pondering B or D with either Vardy [C] or KDB [C] respectively. B is likely the one and don’t think this dullard move. Keeping Kane is dullard 😆

        A) play Foden (BUR)

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          A, even though it will likely pain you knowing he may not get minutes. It has the biggest upside.

          1. Pukki Party
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I'm pretty sure he won't start, and isn't even getting regularly good minutes from bench.

      • Shark Team
        • 3 Years

        Kane has a great record Vs Arsenal and he also scored a goal vs CRY(A) and vs LIV(A) last season(which was worse for Spurs and him than this season) and also a brace vs LEI(H).
        So maybe completely ignore Vardy if you have captain options for the next run of fixtures?

          I'd only get in Vardy if I could remove someone other than Kane

              I'm doing this move and am pretty sure JImenez will brace in a 2-0 win at the Emirates

                0-0 guaranteed in that games between the two biggest enemies of football

          what's his record like v chelsea mate? (if you have it)

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I don't clearly remember it but I've noticed that he scored almost the 50% of Spurs goals at the Bridge. So if Spurs score it's likely that Kane will return again.

          2. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            4 in 10, 10 in 11 v Arsenal, as far as I can see. The difference this season is obviously that hes chipping in with Assists too.

              cheers mate

        3. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years

          Agree with your last sentence.

          Thing is Kane doesn't typically get big hauls in those games. Against Arsenal he has never got more than 1 goal OR 1 assist in a match according to a stat posted on here yesterday.
          Marginally better record against Palace.

          I think people just see Vardy's ceiling as much higher. Could easily get 2G + 1A against Fulham itself.

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I agree but imo BHA(H) and EVE(H) are not the games that favour Vardy because his team may find it difficult to win those. 3-4-3 makes them more solid defensively so I'm a little bit worried about Leicester. Also Kane has 15 returns without pens(6g-9a) while Vardy has only 6(4g-2a). I believe that Vardy is gonna outscore Kane in the next two by 8-12 pts but still not enough to make me drop Kane if I have other reliable captains

        4. Maddamotha
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          New season, new games.

          So whatever they did previously against the same teams, will happen again?
          Guess I have to start looking at all the previous season's matches on all players.

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I agree Vardy ain't gonna 2G + 1A Vs Fulham again

          2. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            No but historically players who have done well against the same opponents usually continue to do so. Eg Aguero v Spurs, Kane v Arsenal, Salah v Watford

        Tough
        But i need to bench one
        A) Ziyech
        B) Adams
        C) Grealish

        Anyone else scared Cancelo might not start?

          Should be safe this week, can't see Mendy starting again so soon after Wednesday.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Hopefully. I am worried about Zinchenko though

        2. IRBOX ⚽

          Only weak benches. He plays with Mendy playing CL

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

            You do know Cancelo played RB in UCL, right?

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              Ahhhh really? 😆 Mendy back from injur isn’t starting two consecutive, but thanks for the concern

          2. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            I have Kilman coming in if he doesn't play. I guess Arsenal suck so its okay. But i was hoping for a double digit return from cancelo. Cancelo played midweek too so that's why im a little worried

        3. mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Would be if I owned, Zincenko back too

        4. Shark Team
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I believe he won't. It's clear that Pep subbed Mendy to rest him for the weekend. He was also great and grabbed an assist Vs Burnley on FA Cup 2 months ago

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

        Pick one to replace TAA
        1. Cancelo/Dias
        2. Maguire
        3. Robertson (would mean I can't bring back Salah in the mid term)

        1. Gizzachance
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          A i got cancelo, maybe dias is safer pick

      • Wolfman180

        Currently on KDB for captain but im starting to have doubts. We all know city haven't been on form going forward and Burnley are know doubt going to park the bus.. feel like this could easily be a 1-0

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

          Alternatives?

          1. Wolfman180
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Kane/Son/DCL/Jrod/Ziyech and I was half tempted last night to take a punt on Bamford against a potentially leaky Everton side

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

          like the sheff utd game !

            Exactly

      • leonickroberts
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Posted a similar question earlier in the week, but would you do anything with this side before the deadline?

        Martinez
        Chilwell Bellerin Justin Coufal
        Salah Sterling Ziyech Fernandes
        DCL Watkins
        (4.0, Mitchell, Brewster, McGinn)

        Have been considering:
        a) Bellerín > Cancelo
        b) Bellerín & McGinn > Cancelo & Jota (-4)
        c) Bellerín & McGinn > Robbo & Soucek (-4)
        d) McGinn > Raphinha
        e) McGinn & Brewster > Raphinha & Bamford (-4)
        f) Hold

        Leeds fan, so tempted by e in spite of it being wholly unecessary this week.

        Help pls!

        Do you think it is worth taking a -4 to get Zaha out as he is sick and bring in either Jota or Grealish? I'm also worried also that if Foden doesn't play inonlybhave Mendy on the bench who can come in. My team is below. Thanks.

        Martinez
        Zouma Konsa Justin
        Son Foden Bruno Zaha
        Kane Vardy DCL

        Subs: Steer, Mendy, Lamptey Mitchell

        1. ChelseaGuy
          • 4 Years

          Grealish is a good long term pick

            • 8 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Do you think it is worth a -4 this week considering my team?

            Will also swap Foden for Ziyech next week
