The FPL Round-Up: Pep on Cancelo, Lampard to rotate and Richarlison update

Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m), Granit Xhaka (£5.2m), Bukayo Saka (£5.1m) | Tammy Abraham (£7.2m)
  • Assists: Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe (£4.4m) | Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.7m)
  • Bonus: Saka x3, Lacazette x2, Bernd Leno (£4.9m), Xhaka x1

A much-changed, and much-improved, Arsenal saw off Chelsea to ease the pressure on manager Mikel Arteta.

The result meant a third straight away loss for the Blues, incurring the wrath of boss Frank Lampard, who branded his players ‘lazy’.

Fantasy managers were ill-served by Lampard in the run-up to the match, with injury doubts over full-backs Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) and Reece James (£5.2m) prompting many to sell them on.

As it happened, both started and promptly handed their remaining owners another day without clean sheet points – Chelsea have managed just one shut-out in their last five games.

The team’s most popular attacking player, the 15.3%-owned Timo Werner (£9.3m), made it seven starts without a goal, although his opportunities were severely limited when Lampard hooked him at half-time:

Timo today wasn’t giving us enough with or without the ball and some of it we have to give him time because it is a different league, but also we have to get there quickly. So we’ll see about his tiredness. I will have a conversation with him, but it was a decision I just felt I had to make.

Werner won’t be the only player nervously checking the teamsheet for Gameweek 16’s visit from Aston Villa on Monday either:

I will have to rotate players, I will have to see after Arsenal where players are in their fitness, every individual is different, we will do our best to get the turnaround right.

Arteta has an extra day to plan for the Gunners’ trip to Brighton, with the immediate future of the benched Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.4m and 7.4%) the main Fantasy concern.

In his absence, Alexandre Lacazette (£8.2m), Granit Xhaka (£5.2m) and Bukayo Saka (£5.1m) got the goals, while Emile Smith-Rowe‘s (£4.4m) energy caught the eye.

Tammy Abraham (£7.2m) managed a late consolation goal – his third in two matches – and Bernd Leno (£4.9m) then saved a Jorginho (£4.8m) penalty, but the hosts deserved their win, with the outstanding Saka bringing in maximum bonus points for his 2.4% ownership.


Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Mari, Holding, Bellerín; Elneny, Xhaka; Martinelli (Pepe 71), Smith Rowe (Willock 65), Saka; Lacazette (Mustafi 90+2). 

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): E Mendy; Chilwell, T Silva, Zouma, R James; Mount, Kanté (Havertz 74), Kovacic (Jorginho 45); Werner (Hudson-Odoi 45), Abraham, Pulisic.

Manchester City 2-0 Newcastle United

.
  • Goals: Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m), Ferran Torres (£6.9m)
  • Assists: Raheem Sterling (£11.4m)
  • Bonus: Gundogan x3, Joao Cancelo (£5.6m) x2, Nathan Ake (£5.4m) x1

A routine win for Manchester City came with another unremarkable score from the team’s most popular Fantasy asset, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m).

More than 189,000 managers sold on the 23.8%-owned Belgian heading into the match after a run of just one assist from three starts.

And a further blank on Boxing Day has prompted another 58,000+ to put him in the top three for Gameweek 16 sales, including (presumably) some of the 561,821 who captained him against Newcastle.

With Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) ill and Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) still being eased back from injury, City manager Pep Guardiola handed the striker’s role to Ferran Torres (£6.9m), who steered home the team’s second goal of a predictably one-sided contest.

But it was Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) who had he most penalty area touches (12) on the day, and from one of those he set up Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m) for the opener.

That was the midfielder’s second goal from his last three starts, and although he later picked up a knock, he played it down post-match.

I got a couple of kicks on my foot, but it shouldn’t be that bad. I should be able to go again on Monday.

Based on Guardiola’s penchant for rotation, that confidence looks ill-advised.

And the manager’s comments on Joao Cancelo (£5.6m), who impressed at both ends of the pitch on the way to a fourth clean sheet in five matches, should send shivers down the collective spine of his 6.1% ownership:

He’s a player with incredible quality, and his regeneration and physicality is incredible. He could play tomorrow!

Newcastle, meanwhile, came to defend, did that well, but not well enough and then left, with their main attacking threat, Callum Wilson (£6.6m) missing out with a knock – and boss Steve Bruce’s desire not to risk him after four matches in 12 days.

The next two will take place over five days and involve visits from Liverpool and Leicester, ensuring interest in Newcastle assets – aside from the 15.7%-owned Wilson – remains the wrong side of meh.


Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Ake; Gundogan (Foden 90+1), Rodrigo (Fernandinho 57); De Bruyne, Bernardo, Sterling; Torres (Aguero 77).

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Darlow; Yedlin, Schar, Fernandez, Clark, Ritchie (Lewis 66); Murphy, Hayden, M Longstaff, Almiron (Gayle 82); Joelinton (Carroll 71).

Sheffield United 0-1 Everton

  • Goals: Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m)
  • Assists: Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Sigurdsson x3, Michael Keane (£5.1m) x2, Yerry Mina (£5.5m), Mason Holgate (£4.8m) x1

Everton made it four wins on the bounce – three involving clean sheets – with a hard-fought victory over an increasingly desperate Sheffield United.

‘Desperate’ also adequately describes those (few) Fantasy managers still hoping for returns from Blades players, so after a quick mention of yet another blank for the 6.6%-owned Rhian Brewster (£4.5m), it’s back to Carlo Ancelotti’s side for the rest of this report.

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£6.8m) scored the winner, his third return in those four victories, from an Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.3m) assist in the 80th minute.

The fact that was the first shot on target in the second half spoke volumes as to the attacking play on offer from both teams.

Then again, with both James Rodriguez (£7.7m) and Richarlison (£7.8m) still out for the visitors, that was no great surprise as the 60.9%-owned Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.0m) blanked for the first time since Gameweek 10.

Ancelotti confirmed that Richarlison would not be ready to return against Man City on Monday:

There is no possibility to prepare the team. We have to think about the players who can recover in two days. After that, we have to rotate some players. Richarlison is following his concussion protocols and has to stay out.

That could prompt plenty of Calvert-Lewin sales – he’s currently sixth for Gameweek 16 transfers out – as the striker struggles for goals without the Brazilian in the team.

And with a clean sheet a tall order against Guardiola’s troops, it’s no surprise to find zero Everton players in the top 30 for purchases either, despite such a fine run of recent form.


Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Basham, Egan, Robinson; Baldock, McGoldrick (Norwood 63) Osborn, Ampadu, Stevens; Brewster (Mousset 76), Burke (McBurnie 45). 

Everton XI (4-5-1): Pickford; Holgate, Keane (Coleman 66), Mina, Godfrey; Doucoure, Davies (Gomes 74), Sigurdsson, Gordon (Bernard 55), Iwobi; Calvert-Lewin.

    KDB to Harvey Barnes to free up some cash for upgrading Bissouma & Watkins? Yes or No? Have 1 FT left so wouldn't have to take a hit

    Martinez, Fabianski
    Coufal, KWP, Dallas, Taylor, James
    KDB, Bruno, Salah, Grealish, Bissouma
    Watkins, DCL, Bamford

    1. yanky

      KDB DCL > Vardy Raphinha?

      1. ClaireT
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Would you say those 2 moves would be worth a -4?

        1. yanky
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          I could see it paying off between now and GW19. Could downgrade KDB and then upgrade DCL in GW17 for free- that's fine too. Other popular options are Kane/Son

          1. ClaireT
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            Thank you 🙂 If I pull the trigger and did both this week, who would you bench from the team as it would then be?

            Martinez, Fabianski
            Coufal, KWP, Dallas, Taylor, James
            Raphinha, Bruno, Salah, Grealish, Bissouma
            Watkins, Vardy, Bamford

            1. yanky
              • 11 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              coufal bissouma and another defender. i think the safer play is just doing one ft this wk with kdb > raphinha or son and reassess in gw17. son better option nut if u want cheaper mid and a dgwk player raphinha is the guy

              1. ClaireT

    WC team below, thoughts? FH18, BB19. What transfers should I make leading up to 19? 0.0 in bank.

    Fabianski Johnstone
    Dias Cancelo TAA Justin Coufal
    Salah Mane Bruno Soucek Raphinha
    Bamford Rodrigo Wood

    a) keep as is and don't make any transfers
    b) Son in for Mane, than Son>Mane in gw19 for double. This would require Dias to Stones or Fabianski to McCarthy (since Mane will rise in price before gw19 and I wouldn't be able to afford).

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Curious to your Sv? Triple Leeds attack could hurt... mane, taa and Salah very nice triple up though

      1. yanky
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        102.7 -- I know I like the pool triple up a lot but feel I need spurs somehow for the next two...just wish I had an extra .1 for Son > Mane since Mane should rise before 19. That plan requires a downgrade somewhere else though.

  3. Tabbara

    Thoughts on this WC draft :

    Johnston McCarthy
    Taylor Cancello Dias Dallas Coufal
    Salah Fernandes Mane Son Soucek
    Rodrigo Adams Bamford

    Thx

    1. yanky

      I like it, template but that's not a bad thing. Mine is similar (above).

      1. Sloane426
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 18 days ago

        City fixtures aren’t great defensively for the next 2 and then no DGW. Why the double up?

        1. yanky
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          best defense in the league and cancelo very attacking, gw20 on they are great picks so u can argue its early but if im gonna double up any def its mancity imo

          1. Sloane426
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 18 days ago

            You’re getting tougher fixtures than Robertson and one less game. I’m waiting for GW20 for city players

      2. Tabbara
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        weird that is not a template

    Need some advise please?

    What would you do to this squad?

    Salah, Son, Grealish, Bruno, Soucek
    Bamford, Vardy

    Forster, DCL, KWP, Mitchell.

    1. djman102
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Bank the transfer.

      Close, but playing DCL just edges it for me. If Vardy gets rested, may not matter.

    okay what do you think of this WC ? Playing FH in 18

    Johnstone/McCarthy
    Robo/KWP/Justin/Dallas/Taylor
    Salah/Bruno/Son/Soucek/Reed
    Kane/Bam/Adams

    Playing BB in 19 (prob will sub out Kane and Son for a DGW)

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Good to have double Spurs for next two. I'd get in either Fabianski or Balbuena over double Saints in gk/def.

  9. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Gtg? Bench and playing keeper correct?

    Ramsdale
    Robbo Cancelo Taylor
    Salah Son C Bruno Soucek
    DCL Bamford Adams

    Martinez Ayling Anguissa Lewis

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      you sure you want to give the armband to Son over Mo?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Currently yes based on fixture. Might change later.

  10. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years

    Mccarthy
    Robbo Taylor Chilwell
    Salah Grealish Bruno Bowen
    Kane Bamford Watkins

    4.0 to Johnstone 16/17/19
    Watkins to Antonio 17/19
    Kane to Vardy (-4) 19

    Any of them worth doing this week?

    1. djman102
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Nope. You have bench cover for Chilwell if needed, so I'd bank it.

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers

  11. C_Manan
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Making way for Grealish here; who to drop
    A) Robbo > 5.0m Def; prob Stones
    B) DCL > Welbeck
    C) DCL > Rodrigo; already have Bamford

    1. C_Manan
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 18 days ago

      *Bruno for Grealish

      1. MOZIL
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Bruno

      2. Sloane426
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Makes no sense

        1. C_Manan
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 18 days ago

          It's Bruno in Grealish Out

  12. Caleb's Kitties
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Is having the following 7 players worth saving FH chip in Gw 18/19? Shall TC salah in 19 with 8 DGWers.

    Dier dias
    Grealish KDB son
    Kane DCL

    Only thing is i'll need to use 2 transfers to hokey cokey salah/bruno and KDB in 18/19.

    Gw18: Salah/bruno to KDB, save 2nd FT
    Gw19: KDB to salah/bruno, kane to vardy

    Gw19 team:
    MCCARTHY (forster)
    DALLAS COUFAL dias (dier mitchell)
    SALAH BRUNO SOUCEK grealish son
    VARDY BAMFORD (dcl)

    1. djman102
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Seems the safe move. You have most of the standard GW18 FH team, so you're only 8 pts down. And any transfer for 18 is basically a lottery ticket costing 2 points.

  13. Timbomars
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Q: If I have two free transfers banked when I play my free hit chip - will they roll over to the following gameweek or will it revert to having just one free transfer available?

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      i asked the same thing, no one seems to know.

    On WC...Dallas or Coufal?

    1. djman102
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      I did Coufal for my WC.

  15. Gabbiadini
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Field Coufal or Stones?

    1. Silent Friend
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Stones easy

    2. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Coufal

  16. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Play DCL or Taylor (SHU)?

    1. Bruce Lee
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      DCL

    2. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Taylor easy

  17. Avo24
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    For DGW 19, KDB + Son > rashford + Mane/ Vardy?
    Already have salah + bruno for the big hitter

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      I'm planning similar transfers

      1. Avo24
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        I think I am going all out in GW 19 with TC Salah or Bruno. Hope my decent team value can give me little advantage

        1. Canadian Football
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          if you have a decent Team value. consider BB instead of TC. Salah's fixtures are tricky

  18. Bruce Lee
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    Had a rethink... KDB had to go

    Such a tough decision because he has made a lot of chances that his teammates aren't converting... ran out of patience

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Same

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years

        Can't wait for his useless teammates to turn good again

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          This, won't captain this week anyway and FH in 18 and then a single gameweek.

        The other Pukki account did the same as me so I'm not asked what you think

          City don’t have a proper number 9 playing. Aguero is back now so we’ll see what happens

            3 months, 18 days ago

            Fair point, I don't think this is their issue though

            Very low on confidence and lack of a killer instinct. An older Aguero that is just coming off a long layoff probably won't hit the ground running

            Let's see

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Yeah could be. Selling him could definitely pay off short term

  19. Purefection

    Start DCL or Podence?

  20. Neo-Viper
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 18 days ago

    RMWCT

    McCarthy Darlow
    Dias Coufal Robbo Dier CTaylor
    Salah Saka Son Bruno Souchek
    Che Bamford Vardy

    Darlow and Saka will become Meslier and Harrison/Raphinha in the DGW.

    Good?? Bad?? Any other better suggestions?

      You only have 5 for GW18. Free hitting, or just riding it out?

    2. Neo-Viper
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Thinking of riding it out! Still havent wrapped my mind around it though!

      Penny for your thoughts?

      1. djman102
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Without using FH, I'd look at 1-2 more in 18 with a decent 19 fixture as well if possible. Guessing you don't have anything ITB for Vardy to Kane? Maybe Taylor to Holding if you think Arsenal have turned a corner.

        1. djman102
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Forgot about Burnley's fixture up to 18. I'd wait on Taylor to Holding until GW 18 to see if they do keep improving. Then you'll have defenders vs. SHU, FUL, CPL, and NEW 16-19

          1. Neo-Viper
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            CTaylor Dias Vardy to Holding Stones and Kane

            Surgery will be needed! What do you think?

      2. djman102
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Looks pretty good otherwise, though rumors are Vardy may be rested this GW.

    Question, if i do not make a transfer in GW 17, then play a free hit in 18. Does my FT carry over to GW19?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      You only have 1 FT for 19 no matter what the situation with transfers was before FH in 18

    2. Avo24
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      You must use your transfer in GW 17 so it will not be wasted. Cannot accumulate FT if FH being used

    Any suggestions for this team?

    1. Albrightondknight

      • 5 Years
      3 months, 18 days ago

      Beauty team I don’t have a suggestion but there is probably something you can do not to burn one but I don’t even know the value of some of those bench defenders.
      You could look at a Grealish replacement with the bad fixtures but if you got value tied up and with good fixtures again from 20 I could understand if you wanted to hold.

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Thanks, gotta sell one of grealish/kdb, but grealish has 0.3 tied & I've got no money ITB
        I was thinking sell kdb for a couple of GWs & then get him back for GW18
        what do you think?

    Stone instead of Dias worth the savings $$$ ???

    Would you take a hit here with 3.2itb?

    Martinez
    Dias Dallas Taylor
    Salah Bruno Son Grealish Soucek
    Kane Wood

    - Coufal Brewster 3.9

    1. Albrightondknight

      So what’s the plan for the next few weeks and what moves were you considering not for that hit?

    • Winners900

      Anyone else who went for Mane instead of Son?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Tempting but about 2.5m more so probs not

      2. Avo24
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        For me, Son for the next 2 fixture and turn to Mane for the DGW onward

      3. yanky
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        I'm debating this exact thing. I can start with Mane and have Fabiasnki & Dias or I can go Son (Mane in 19) but it means downgrading either Fabianski to McCarthy or Dias to Stones (since I have 0.0 in bank and Mane will rise before 19). thoughts?

      4. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 18 days ago

        Will be doing son to Mane after the BGW

        1. Winners900
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Just made more sense for me. Son needs to get more than +4 points on Mane to justify it in my case the next two gmw
