Jota continues relentless form as Klopp manages Salah’s minutes

BRIGHTON 1-1 LIVERPOOL

  • Goals: Pascal Groß (£5.8m) | Diogo Jota (£6.8m)
  • Assists: Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) | Mohamed Salah (£12.2m)
  • Bonus points: Gross x3, Jota x2, Lewis Dunk x1 (£4.8m)

JOT THAT DOWN

A Pascal Groß (£5.8m) stoppage-time penalty denied Liverpool a victory and left owners of Andrew Robertson (£7.2m) rueing the late VAR decisions in Gameweek 10.

But Diogo Jota (£6.8m) continued his fantastic scoring record with a 60th minute goal – the ninth since his £40m summer move from Wolves. It came from Liverpool’s left-hand side, as Robertson setting up Mohamed Salah’s (£12.2m) one-touch pass to Jota, who managed to wriggle through the defence to hit a low right-footed shot into the corner.

Such success has seen Jota’s ownership rise to 22% and this strike certainly won’t slow down the race to grab the league’s most in-form player. Initially perceived as a back-up option, Jota is making himself undroppable and faces Fulham in Gameweek 12.

In a match of two penalties and two disallowed goals, both Salah and substitute Sadio Mané (£12.1m) were victims of the latter. The Egyptian star was ditched by 1.4 million FPL managers when his positive coronavirus (COVID-19) tests ruled him out of last Sunday’s 3-0 win over Leicester. 

Owners who risked that Salah would only miss one match were delighted to see him play in midweek and again here, hoping to add to his record of five goals and three assists against Brighton.

“I can explain it one last time: in this period we are now in, five subs is not for tactical changes. And if ever one coach has the luck to use it for tactical changes that would be the exception. If we would have had five subs today then Andy Robertson I would have taken off, 100 per cent; I had Kostas Tsimikas on the bench, so he can play 15/20 minutes.” – Jurgen Klopp

A couple of early opportunities did arrive for Salah. Firstly, Jota was released down the flank in the opening minute and almost provided a tap-in for his team mate, were it not for a defender getting there first. Two minutes later, Fabinho’s (£5.4m) long pass put Salah through on goal but his left-footed shot went wide.

However, when he converted a similar one-on-one, VAR ruled he was offside and that his calm finish past Mat Ryan (£4.5m) would not count. That was it for Salah, as the assist for Jota put him on six points – substituted off for Mané with a clean sheet point secured.

Salah was furious at being replaced but Mané, rested as part of Jurgen Klopp’s decision to carefully manage an injury-ravaged squad, perhaps a sign of an explosive score on the horizon.

Jota’s hot streak has coincided with Mané’s relative drought, scoring just once from his previous eight games in all competitions. He headed home a Robertson free kick in the 84th minute but VAR again deemed it offside.

ROBBO ROBBED?

It looked set to be a comfortable Liverpool victory, as the champions improved since the half-time introduction of captain Jordan Henderson (£5.4m). With a vocal leader on the pitch, they were able to nullify the threat of Brighton better than they had done previously.

Yet a late attack led to Robertson kicking the boot of Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) and the awarding of the Seagulls’ second penalty – this time successfully converted by Gross.

“Football is played by human beings, there’s going to be some mistakes and errors, including from the officials. We will be on the wrong end of them sometimes, but we will also be on the right end of them. We’ve got to accept that VAR is here and try and support it as best we can and not get too carried away with decisions because they’re nothing we can control.” – Graham Potter

This equaliser prevented the patched-up Liverpool defence from keeping their sixth clean sheet in the nine games since Virgil van Dijk’s (£6.3m) ACL injury against Everton. After hosting Wolves in Gameweek 11, encouraging fixtures against Fulham (away), Crystal Palace (away), West Brom (home) and Newcastle (away) will tempt many to return to Klopp’s back line, especially once Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) returns from his calf injury.

NEAL’D IT

Brighton’s upcoming games are mixed – Southampton (home), Leicester (away), Fulham (away), Sheffield United (home) and West Ham (away). Those with Neal Maupay (£6.3m) might be wondering if he’ll ever score again. Without a goal since his spree between Gameweeks 2 and 4, disciplinary problems saw him dropped for the recent visit to Tottenham and the former Brentford man missed Brighton’s first penalty of the day.

His spot kick was given in the 19th minute, in a period where Aaron Connolly (£5.3m) was a constant menace to Liverpool’s inexperienced defence. Shortly before, he was put through on goal by Maupay’s defence-splitting pass but put his shot off-target. Then Connolly was fouled by Neco Williams (£3.9m), before Maupay put the eventual penalty wide. The Frenchman compounded his misery by limping off with a hamstring problem minutes later.

Injuries are everywhere right now, with Liverpool’s known troubles almost worsened when versatile James Milner (£5.3m) was in pain. Against his former club, substitute Adam Lallana (£6.2m) only lasted eight minutes for Brighton before he himself was replaced due to injury.

Head coach Graham Potter will be pleased with a point, especially as it was gained without suspended right-back Tariq Lamptey (£4.8m). His sending off against Aston Villa deprived the Seagulls of a huge attacking threat – second to Robertson in penalty box touches of defenders.

He is part of a Brighton defence that only has two clean sheets, despite heading into Gameweek 10 with fewer shots conceded than everyone else bar Man City, who have played one fewer match. Between them, goalkeepers Ryan and Robert Sanchez (£4.4m) had only made 13 saves, with Ryan adding one more here.

So their solid defence isn’t letting many shots through, yet those that do are often goals. Owners of Lamptey will hope that this peculiar rate sorts itself out over their upcoming fixtures, enabling him to bring in returns at both ends of the field.

BRIGHTON XI (3-5-2): Ryan; Dunk, Webster, White; Veltman, Gross, Bissouma, March, Connolly (Lallana 63’ (Jahanbakhsh 71’)); Maupay (Trossard 26’), Welbeck

LIVERPOOL XI (4-2-3-1): Alisson; N Williams (Henderson 46’), Fabinho, Phillips, Robertson; Milner (Jones 74’), Wijnaldum; Minamino, Jota, Salah (Mane 64’); Firmino

    May be old news but, from a Leicester ITK

    "Monday’s game too early for Castagne, hopefully be back for Sheff United."

      Good to hear as a Justin owner

      1. Twisted Saltergater

        1 month, 29 days ago

        He's never going to lose his place

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          So where’s he gunna play when both Pereira & Castagna are back?

          He not knocking either of those or Soy/Evans/Fofana out of the side I’m afraid

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            perhaps I should have put /s on the end. People have been saying his spot is at risk since the start of the season and here we are going into December. He could even play as left or right CB in a back 3. I'd certainly keep until he is dropped.

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I’ll keep him for the time being for sure.

              But he’s on borrowed time definitely. He can’t even get a CB spot as he will be behind Fofana, Soy & Evans

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                in theory, yep

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Is it?

          Justin would have been playing regardless.

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            This week yes, but he’s still living on borrowed time

    Mendy
    Chillwell Justin Konsa
    Salah Rodriguez Ziyech Bruno

    Nyland Mitchell Killman Klich

    Is Salah & Jrod/Klich to Jota and City mid good or bad?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I'm sure you'll want Salah back as captain vs Fulham in GW12

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not keen but it might work. KDB(c) this week, then bring Salah back for Fulham & captain him.

      But I’m not keen because you are booking in a FT for the next week and could be hit with injuries/suspensions elsewhere

  3. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    2 x FT's but at a real loss what to do here. Double up on Everton's attack has been drastically undermined by Digne's injury, so they're probably the priority - even with Burnley up next. I do want to try and squeeze KdB in though.

    Martinez
    Chilwell, Cancelo, James, Lamptey, Mitchell
    Salah, Bruno, Ziyech, Grealish, Bissouma
    Kane, Richarlison, DCL

    Am looking at Antonio and Adams, and will turn to Jesus if things get any worse haha.

    1. bso
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Not Jesus...unless you want 2 points.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        thanks, I saw the light and found another way not involving Jesus

    So funny to see last week on here people saying how selling Kane/Son/Bruno for KDB was ludicrous and the same are now doing it after he gets some pts. Point chasing at its finest

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I think a lot of people we were waiting to see City start firing, which they did today (although Burnley were absolutely awful).
      Plus they have Fulham next, so it does make sense.

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Aren't they chasing next week's points?

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      You think you don't need him against mighty Fulham?

      1. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I already got him and captained against Burnley

    4. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Worked out as well, only 2 assists

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Worked out as in seeing how they got on first before making a move

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Worked out in the sense that you all watched and took notes and rubbed your chins while City ran up massive amounts of points?

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            2 assists worth yes, now I know I can trust him more

  5. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Solskjaer doesn't seem one to rotate his players and they have PSG up midweek. Considering dropping Bruno after the Southampton game tomorrow. Anyone doing the same?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Probably not.

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Too early to say...

      Somebody has to give way for Salah when he plays Fulham. And for me it will have to be Bruno or KDB that makes way

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        yep, I could give up a few mid priced options to have KdB, Salah, Bruno and Kane, but it leaves me bare elsewhere. Think I'd prefer to lose Bruno out of those 4.

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Between him, Rashford and Salah if I want KdB in.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Nope, keeping for sure

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        am guessing you have Kane, KdB and Bruno but no Salah? If so, aren't you likely to sell Bruno for Salah in GW12 vs Fulham?

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          No KdB or Salah atm (Sterling...sigh). Plan is Sterling to Salah in GW12

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            you're doing brilliantly, wow... well done 🙂

            yes, I can see how Sterling has let you down big time this week. That's unfortunate. Must be tricky now knowing whether to do the swap to KdB in case he plays vs Fulham and hauls.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Well...the plan was KdB, the 2nd Jota rise meant I had to go Sterling, to the detriment of me waiting til the last minute to make moves.
              So if I want KdB it’s a hit, which I don’t think I will do.

              Cheers, this week and last week haven’t been good, I need Soucek to do well off the bench now!

                • 11 Years

                Come on, you're getting Dallas too... share some luck around 😉

                  Deliberate benchwankery by starting Lamptey on purpose lol

  6. Szczajuszka

    Brought in Vardy (C)/Jota for Zaha/Kane for a hit this week as needed some proof of life from KDB before giving the armband for a few weeks.
    GW11 Vardy/Forma to KDB(c)/Adams for another hit?

      Hell no, Vardy is a keep for the next 3 or 4 weeks I think, Sheffield United up next....

    son to kdb tonight? unfortunately i will be priced out tomorrow

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      It’s so annoying isn’t it, it used to be that players would be rising/dropping on the final day of the gameweek or early in the week.
      Nowadays it’s after the first day of the current gameweek! I don’t understand it, especially with COVID, the masses must be taking hits aplenty!

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I would

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      In answer to your question, I wouldn’t. Son has Arsenal at home next and can see him doing well

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        yeah, Fulham's defence is far more assured than Arsenal's

        /s

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Arsenal won’t park the bus, Son will have space to run in behind.
          Either way, I wouldn’t be making transfers this early.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            KdB is very unlikely not to play in the CL given City have qualified. As early transfers go, this ones seems less risky than others.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I’m on about the rest of his squad though, travelling or not. Anyone could get the virus.
              Let’s face it’s quite likely. Maybe to the point where he has a forced move which in turn makes it easier to get him in anyway later in the week

            2. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              What do you mean?!?

              1. Baps hunter
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Double negative by mistake?

                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Haha, yes! didn't spot it

              2. Twisted Saltergater

                • 11 Years

                what is the ?!? for?

            3. POTATO
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Your first sentence has two negatives, so you are stating KdB is going to play CL - which I don't think you meant?

    4. Vazza
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I wouldn’t and there are two reasons -

        A. Although Spurs have a challenging fixture run, Son is their main striker and can haul in any given gameweek

        B. Transferring players this early esp. when the current gameweek has not yet ended and given the current climate, is a very high risk strategy.

        So for me it is a definite no.

      • Sotamendi84

        thanks i could go for sterling or mahrez i guess and captain

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes, Sterling’s turn next gameweek 😉

      • Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        If you don't do it is going to cost you .1 and 4 pts.

    5. Wılly

      2FT, 0.3 ITB

      Any initial thoughts?

      Martinez (Forster)
      Chilwell Lamptey Lewis (Dallas Branthwaite)
      Salah Sterling Son KDB Jota
      DCL Bamford (Brewster)

          Your team seems fine. Wait until Friday for press conferences and then decide if you need to tweak anything

          really tough. Just a sugestion watkins/wilson for a one week punt insteaad of bam. specially if chelsea keep a cs v spuds.

          no obvs move

        • KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

          Looks good to me, beautiful midfield

      2. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Would you rather sell Ziyech or Son?.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          so tough. If they were the same price, then Ziyech.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Had Ziyech down as a season keeper. Fancy Spurs to smash Arsenal though

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I'd sell Son if there's 1.5m price difference, unless you consider him a captain option.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

          Ziyech

          Ziyech, think this season Son will just be relentless

        4. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I would say Ziyech...
          To ask a different question would you rather sell Ziyech or Grealish?

        5. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Ziyech, he’s my make way for KDB whilst keeping Son, also gonna sell DCL, gotta take risks now

          Ziyech, but Leeds isn't a great fixture to sell him for.

        7. DickFranDyke
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Why sell either? Both keepers, don't be swayed by today's points.

      3. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years

        Think I'm done with DCL in GW12. Ownership too high.

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Who cares how many people own him? Just pick who is scoring the points and you’ll do well. No need to overthink things imo

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Better hope he doesn't continue scoring then.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Considering moving him to Wilson/ Watkins in GW12 to fund Bruno > Salah

        4. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I'd sell with a spare FT. The loss of Digne is massive to Everton.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 29 days ago

        Grealish to Jota and upgrade Mitchell to a 4.5 defender, which will provide better bench fodder.

        1. Ain't No Holebas Girl
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Would rather squeeze both in if possible given Villa fixtures

          1. stevehaigh84
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I currently own Watkins as well.

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Not a fan of selling Grealish. But if Villa look poor again next week without Barkley I might begin to consider it.

          Can see why you want Jota though mind you. Well happy I got him in for Podence this week

      5. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Who knows what this GW will bring but... This looks like it could be a hold for GW11 barring any injuries/ covid. Agree?

        1FT 0.5itb
        Martinez
        Robbo, Chilwell, KWP
        Bruno, KDB, Ziyech, Grealish
        Vardy, DCL, Bamford
        (Forster) (Cresswell, Stephens, Branthwaite)

        Plan would be to bring Salah in for Bruno in GW12, funded by either DCL > Wilson/ Watkins or Ziyech > Jota for free with 2FT.

        Cheers

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years

          Very similar team to me. I’m saving too and doing the Bruno > Salah transfer for Fulham.

          GL!

            Thanks mate!

            Do you also need to fund it? Like the idea of either of my proposed moves?

            Tomorrow could be a sh”tsh@w for my OR (jo Kanebut I don’t think it would change my plan!

              Yep, I need to find some cash too.

              Not keen on losing DCL while he just keeps on scoring (well, ok, not this week). So I’d do the Jota trade.

              I have no idea who I’ll move to make cash to bring in Salah though. I’ve got Jota already

          not sure... you could get Torres instead. No-one knows if both play next gameweek and there's a CL match inbetween.

        Hi Peeps,

        It's been a long time since I have been here... Hence a little less updated regarding the latest news

        Do you guys think Sterling has lost his place in the starting lineup?

        Or now that City have qualified in the champions league can we expect him to start more often in the league?

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I think with Aguero's latest setback, he's been pigeon holed as the backup striker to Jesus. I guess we'll see in the midweek CL fixture. But is absolutely doesn't mean he's lost his place. I think Pep rotates when he evaluates a player as not giving his best.

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          No way he’s just dropped Sterling now.

          Nor do I think Cancelo has lost his place.

          Just got to suck up the odd benching with these City players. Even if it’s frustrating they miss an ‘easy’ fixture

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Pep's got to like the way Mendy provided width though, surely? Cancelo seems to want to cut inside - although that's probably by design.

            It's not looking likely Pep changes too much for Fulham but who knows.

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Mendy did well. But Cancelo has been fantastic this season.

              I’m inclined to believe he has been rested & will come back into the side over Mendy...

              Time will tell though

              1. Twisted Saltergater
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                I thought Mendy was out in the cold, so a complete surprise to see him start today.

                I'd switch to Dias with unlimited free transfers.

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I was surprised too, he was pretty good tbf!

              2. Magic Zico

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                The worry is that Cancelo is the main man and will be used for the hard games ... bench for FUL and play for MUN. Did Mendy play 90 min both in CL and PL this week? If so he is fit and may play FUL? I need to deal with Cancelo in my team btw.

                1. thegaffer82
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I’ve got Lamptey 1st on the bench, so it’s not the end of the world if he’s dropped/rested again v Fulham.

                  But, if I traded him out now and he started v Fulham, I’d probably delete my team in rage

                  1. Magic Zico
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    I was annoyed today but was well aware of the risk, got him since GW7 ... my 1st bench is Coufal (MUN) or Taylor (EVE) which is probably 1 pointers. I guess just leave Cancelo for his farewell points.

      9. zizoo10
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Does Sterling+Klich+Chilwell > KDB+Jota+Coufal sounds like a dumb -8? Have the exact amount

        Potential price change:
        KDB +0.2
        Jota +0.1
        Sterling -0.1

        That’s a 0.4 swing, won’t be possible again

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Dumb is a bit harsh and -8 is too much, especially when other players in your team have games before GW11.

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          It’s too early for a -8. A couple of injuries in the remaining games or in the CL/Europa and you’re probably forced to play your FH chip or take even more hits.

          It’s frustrating, but you are just going to have to let those 3 transfers go...

        3. Ain't No Holebas Girl
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          The 3 transfers out could easily outscore the transfers in next week (assuming Sterling starts against Fulham) so I'd be wary but I can see why you'd be tempted with the price swings.

          Wouldn't really want to lose Chilwell in any case.

      10. Gav
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I decided to wait a week to see if man c and kdb in particular looked better and found some form. Seems like we have the answer already.

        I’m 0.4 short of son to kdb, but have 2 frees.

        Martinez / steer
        Robertson / lamptey / Coufal / chilwell / Mitchell
        Son / zyiech / Fernandes / grealish/ zambo
        Kane / dcl / Wilson

        So to raise the 0.4
        A) lamptey to kilman / Lewis
        B) zyiech to jota
        C) kane to fodder then Zambo to jota got week 12 going 352.
        D) other

        Doing A means I can do B next week

        1. Nunoooooooooo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          A to kilman for me

      11. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I know the famous ‘Jimenez has never blanked 3 league games in a row’ exists and is true.
        So in a similar vein, has Sterling ever been benched 3 league games in a row?
        Maybe I’m being too superstitious...

      12. ForFuchsSake™
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Can’t say I’m not sour about Cancelo not playing. Peps rotation is becoming quite annoying

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I needed him this week with Lamptey out. Down to 10 as a result.

          1. ForFuchsSake™
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            On paper I was on for a killer week but the FPL gods have struck me again

          2. Boberella
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Same here.
            On the bright side, he’s probably more likely to play next week against Fulham, but you never know really.

          3. Top Lad Dakes.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Well, he played full 90 mins in CL and Mendy is fit now. My plan was to get him for -4, but not after seeing that match.

      13. Nunoooooooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Need help! How do I fit KDB in to this lot and not decimate my team?? Don’t want to lose both Kane and Son (one is fine), ideally want to keep Robbo and continue to play 3-5-2...Welcome any ideas please!

        Martinez
        Robbo - Chilwell - Cancelo
        Salah - Son - Ziyech - Grealish - Jota
        Kane - DCL

        Kilman - Mitchell - Brewster

        1. Ain't No Holebas Girl
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Kane / Ziyech > KDB / whoever?

          1. Nunoooooooooo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Have been considering Kane to Richarlison to fund KDB (Ziyech) but double Everton up top worries me?!!

            1. Ain't No Holebas Girl
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Don't hate it but fixtures aren't spectacular. Possibly a week too late but maybe Wilson? I had a 50/50 between him and Bamford and you can imagine which way that one went.

        2. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I never reply to these, but wtf. How much you got to spend, my brother?

          1. Nunoooooooooo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I’ve got 0.5itb so...for example Son ▶️ KDB leaves me -1.9m

        3. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Can you afford Kane to Vardy and Ziyech to KdB

          1. Nunoooooooooo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            No way off unfortunately. 2.4m short of that

            1. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Looks like Kane to Bamford / Wilson then. That price category is serious problem with no decent mids so upgrading Son would mean 4-4-2.

              1. Nunoooooooooo
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                I know, that’s what I keep coming back to as well if I go that way, or Abraham. And tbf I would have chosen Bamford out of those two as well so don’t beat yourself up! Wilson though..... 🙁

        4. Jammy Dodger
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          What about

          Kane > Abraham
          Ziyech > KDB

          That way you still have Chelsea coverage and Tammy is looking in good form!

          1. Nunoooooooooo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Thx JD. This is actually what I have been considering. Still gives me Chelsea coverage and a decent balance but I know he’s a rotation risk with Pulisic coming back...cheers for the suggestion mate!

        Better managers targeted City with the likes of Cancelo and Sterling and unrewarded yet again. Really is another season for the casuals it seems

        1. KAPTAIN KANE

            (C). Doesn’t make up for it

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Nice, no it doesn’t but hopefully in good stead for Fulham at least.
              May even work out better, if a lot decide to sell Cancelo/Sterling and they haul

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Yes that's the spirit. When something doesn't go your way just say everyone else is getting lucky.

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            That’s not the point I’m making. I was shouted down numerous times for saying City will thump Burnley (think you may have been one of the chief offenders). 100% it was the correct fixture to target and yet still no rewards. Typical of this season

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              The downside to upside chasing I guess, especially with bloody Pep

            2. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Lol bud. U can go check all my comments. I never once said city won't do well. I have kdb and cancelo myself. But its pep and we all know the risk of his players. Saying that its a season of casuals diminishes others good picks which isn't a nice thing to say. City fixture isn't the only good fixture of the week.

              1. IRBOX ⚽
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                Ahh but that’s where you’re incorrect. It it the single BEST fixture and those who correctly identified that were not rewarded (yourself included with Cancelo)

                  It happens. I was kinda already dreading cancelo benching. Sterling was a surprise but its what u get with Pep unfortunately. It is annoying but still i wouldn't say its a season of casuals.

          No, you should know the rotation risks of Sterling and Cancelo.

            Both benchings were unpredictable so don’t give me that hindsight nonsense

              No, casuals might find it unpredictable though.

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                You think Mendy just coming back from a serious and ongoing knee injury mid-week and then backing up again twice in a week is predictable? Having a laugh there sorry

                1. Zim0
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I thought Zinchenko would start over Cancelo personally.

            3. Baps hunter
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I strongly disagree. I was planning to get Cancelo, but watched the CL match and Mendy looked good. He is also left footed. Even Team news here warned about him being rotated:

              "Kyle Walker and Aymeric Laporte were also spared in Athens but the in-form Joao Cancelo has completed 180 minutes over the last seven days and is a possibility to make way, with Oleksandr Zinchenko and the newly available Benjamin Mendy possible understudies."

              1. IRBOX ⚽
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                See above... why would Pep risk him twice in a week coming back from a long term injury. Very strange

              2. Baps hunter

                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                I had planned to get Cancelo in for a hit and mentioned it here imo, but found it too risky after Cancelo played whole match.

          2. Top Lad Dakes.

            1 month, 29 days ago

            Agree with Irbox here, and not just because I brought on Cancelo with my FT.

            Mendy just coming back from injury played only 10 or so less mins than Cancelo (who’s been very good this season and recently) in midweek, yet Pep starts him consecutively? Was of course possiblé but if anything I thought Zinchenko may get a game - but figured he’s dross, so surely Cancelo plays.

        6. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Barring Ederson and perhaps KDB - anybody can fall victim to Pep Roulette.

          I’ve got Cancelo (& KDB) but I wasn’t that surprised (or feeling hard done by) when I saw the team sheet. Classic Pep really.

          If Cancelo misses Fulham too, then I will be more upset

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I wouldn’t have minded if it were just Cancelo, but Sterling as well 🙁 I would have settled for a 30 minute run out..

            1. Bennerman

                I’m always like this, just wear my emotions on my sleeve and stick to my opinions fully which some people don’t like.

                  Honourable stuff, but you're going to get equally acute opposite opinions. If we're all big enough to debate stuff then fine... but this is ffs

              Sterling I agree, it came out of nowhere for me, I expected him to start.

            • 2 Years

            Yeah I'll be doing Cancelo to Reece James if he doesn't start fulham either.

          I’ve wondered for a long time about where I go wrong with this game. I’ve been following your comments for a while and I’m learning all the time. I went with Walker instead of Cancelo because he was rested midweek...I’ve been daft haven’t I. Should I sell him for Cancelo?

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Cancelo was originally bought by City to usurp Walker, who he rotated with last season. He might start on the right so don’t be too smug

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              I do like how you make your own decisions and play the game your own way, I must say.
              But you did cave in on Bruno eventually 🙂

                Yes that is a good way to play. He just needs to not belittle others.

                1 month, 29 days ago

                Bruno yes he is actually comfortably out scoring Salah since joining the league. The pens are actually sustainable for United and even though his luck seems to defy logic it is becoming apparent he is, dare I say it, essential. Vardy on the other hand... don’t get me started there 😆

                1. Zim0
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Vardy is my placeholder for my boy Ings. And he has come at just the right time.

                  Vardy captain for me this week! What’s wrong with him? Is it his demeanour?

                  Why do u dislike vardy tho? His finishing abilities are amazing. He's never had great stats but has been consistently scoring for years. And leicester for some reason are getting a scary amount of penalties and its the worst defence in the league next for him

                    Desperately wanted him but injuries and coronavirus led me elsewhere...sadly. He’ll be in this week for certain.

              Smug?...what are you talking about...It’s a genuine question. You said the better players went for Cancelo...

              Oh, I dunno...I’m confused now....

              What did you mean?

              1. IRBOX ⚽
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 29 days ago

                ‘the likes of..’ not Cancelo specifically. I’m saying logically it was the correct decision to target City and yet the rotation was unpredictable and unrewarding. Mahrez had 1 goal on the season and then bang pops up and fills his boots. Could have easily been Sterling

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  I would have loved to see the damage Sterling and a fit Aguero could have done today!

                  Obviously, but why pyss your pants so badly when the same applies to every single one playing this game?

                  1. IRBOX ⚽
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Because not many would have Sterling and Cancelo 0 pointers staring them in the face in their FPL team after a 5-0 route

                3. Polka Wakey O'Dot
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  ...but Pep always rotates...surely the rested ones are the most likely to start.

                  Ooooh...actually....just seen your team is linked (how do folk even do that?)

                  Surprised with your double up of KDB and Sterling. KDB won’t start next weekend, he will play midweek and then it’s his turn for a rest...although Sterling will play both.

                  Are you doing KDB > Mahrez next weekend?

          Does anyone else look at their team before the gw starts, compare it to your league rivals and think "yeah, I'm sure to smash them this week", and then invariably get hugely disappointed, and then after multiple similar weeks, realise that maybe you're not as good a FPL manager as you thought?!

            Triple spurs with Kane C
            Double Chelsea def and played Zouma, benched James.
            No Man City, no Salah, no Vardy.

            He'll prob outscore me easily.

          Best defender to own upto 5.3?

            James... if you can afford the occasional benching.

          Very simple question.
          Sterling to De Bruyne for free.
          Yes or no?

            Yes

              0.4

            How much ITB

            Would wait unless priced out. Sterling vs Fulham could be brutal.

              Sterling has been brutal for weeks.

                Hah fair point

            Wait for CL games to be played and see who plays how many minutes. Then I have a feeling the decision will be easier

          Salah, Fernandes, Son - who makes way for Kdb?

            Son

            Probably Bruno as long as Son keeps performing

            I have same issue with Salah, Bruno and Rashford. I would like to do early move before price rise, but there yoo many chances for someone to get covid or injury. With Salah the issue is that I'll need him back.

          Is Fuchs a regular starter now? Looking for a decent 4.5 (or less) defender. Have Zouma, Lamptey, Cresswell and Cooper. Thanks!

          Sterling to KDB?

          1. DA Minnion
            • 8 Years

            I think so.

            Yes

            Having both next week might be good idea though.

            Could be absolute dynamite

              Was actually a reply fail but could still hold true, would make the call after midweek if you can afford it though!

          Hiya all - off to a pretty terrible start here. Assuming the rest of my lot tick over ok (returns for some hopefully, probably blank for Podence lol), and with only 1FT 2.6 ITB what would you target here? Not averse to some hits at this point...

          Martinez (Steer)
          Robbo Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal Mitchell)
          Bruno Son Ziyech JRodriguez Podence
          Kane DCL (Davis)

          Really hoping Cancelo plays - think I can leave the defence alone a week. But Hamez Podence on the chopping block, potentially also Kane to free funds. Bruno may become Salah again soon.

          Wwyd? 🙂

            I’d get KDB for Fulham. And think Everton aren’t gonna do as well with Digne out.
            So can you do JRod + Kane to KDB + Vardy.

            Pody > Jota & Bruno > KDB(c) perhaps

            Do nothing with Kane until he’s played. If he returns against Chelsea then he’s a keeper. He managed returns even with a parked bus against city...if he does the same against Chelsea then who does he not return against?
