Tuchel explains decision to bench Mendy as Chelsea rotation continues

Chelsea face Newcastle United in the second of two Premier League matches to take place on Monday evening.

Kick-off in west London is at 20:00 GMT.

Having rotated frequently since his appointment, Thomas Tuchel has sprung another surprise with his teamsheet tonight.

Edouard Mendy (£5.1m) is the latest high-profile name to face bench duty, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.7m) given another chance to impress his new manager.

Speaking ahead of kick-off, Tuchel explained his decision:

Four of the five most-owned Chelsea players in Fantasy Premier League are among the substitutes this evening, with Timo Werner (£9.2m) the only one to start.

In related news, none of the back five – including goalkeeper Mendy – that Frank Lampard favoured for much of 2020/21 makes Tuchel’s starting XI this evening.

Thiago Silva (£5.6m) is still missing because of injury, with Ben Chilwell (£5.9m), Reece James (£5.0m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) among the replacements.

Tammy Abraham (£7.2m) starts ahead of Olivier Giroud (£6.7m) up front, meanwhile.

Steve Bruce makes four changes to the Newcastle side that beat Southampton in Gameweek 23.

All four are enforced, with Javier Manquillo (£4.2m), Callum Wilson (£6.6m) and Fabian Schar (£4.9m) injured and Jeff Hendrick (£4.5m) suspended.

In come Ciaran Clark (£4.5m), Jamaal Lascelles (£4.2m), Dwight Gayle (£5.9m) and Emil Krafth (£4.2m)into Bruce’s starting XI.


Chelsea XI: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount, Alonso, Abraham, Werner.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis, Hayden, Shelvey, Willock, Almiron, Saint-Maximin, Gayle.

    On a serious note, why isn't anything being done about posts from users such as Fudgy? Or at least not enough?

    I'm all for the occasional ribbing, or the odd gloat here and there but spamming "Gameweek ruined" every week, every page etc. is certainly an example of "provoking negative reactions" (not least when he's done it on 120+ points this week).

    It's every day and it's relentless. Not even asking or suggesting a ban, just a simple case of "tone down a little bit buddy".

      I used to get banned on here for solely RESPONDING to Brosstan. Funny how things are being ran now.

        You lost me at "responding to Brosstan"

      He is the definition of a troll. The only thing more baffling than how bored he must be is why people always react to his obvious bait every single time.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 3 days ago

        It's just disruptive. He knows what he's doing, he knows people will bite & yet we don't ever see people stepping in to do something about it.

        I don't mind if people like him do it every now and then. It's part of the fu of the game, but every single page? C'mon, mods are really sleeping on their own guidelines.

      The mods havent modded by the T's and C's for three years. I doubt they even realise they exist.

        I'll admit unless you know where to look, they aren't too easy to find quickly.

        (Profile Page > T&Cs, or scroll right down to the bottom of the page, which people often don't do).

        They're there, but I'm not too surprised people don't read 'em.

      Need a block feature.

        I agree with that actually. I'd rather just not see the posts, and others can do the same to mine of they so wish.

        Absolutely this - and chuckle at those wriggling against the bait hook

        Brosstan, who I think was banned for similar things.

        You're fresh in the memory because you are by far the worst abuser of this at the moment.

        I said "such as" because you're not the only one obviously. There's just so many examples from you that it's a little but flagrant, no offence mate.

        1. Fudgy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I don't take offence, you are entitled to your opinion, but you also tried to dox me (granted the info is public) and that's just too far because it's obvious with malicious intent. You also mocked my appearance once lol.

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

            Damn, he really tried that?

            Out of order that to be honest... (no sarcasm)

            It's not doxing when there's no malicious intent. At least unless you thought so?

            Your profile with your name is literally linked by you on your own profile.

            1. Fudgy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Yes just gloss over the fact you mocked my appearance too. You are a weirdo mate trying to find actual information about me.

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

                Saying that you look how you'd expect to look - which is what I said, is not mocking your appearance.

                Unless you have a really crappy perspective of yourself.

                Trying to reveal a person's personal life has 'no malicious intent' apparently hahahaha

                  I didn't reveal anything. Literally linked on his profile?

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

                    What profile, ffs profile?

                    It is just his FPL team... if that's what you used, you clearly went out of your way to find him and his personal details using his name?

                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 3 days ago

                      His name which is on his FPL Profile?

                        So you used his name to find his pics?

                        Strange don.

                      He's very strange making it personal. Like I said, I didn't even report him for it yet he continues to abuse me here.

        I actually did not see anything that would offend me in what he claimed above. Surely should not amount to a ban. But as I said, there are snowflakes all over the social media.

      Is it really that bad?

      Seriously, people are dying and losing loved ones to a global pandemic every day, but a guy posting “gameweek ruined” is what gets us all upset?

      I don’t get it, Hazz.

      In the grand scheme of things this kind of stuff doesn’t bother me at all.

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

        If you want an honest response to that, I'd probably say something along the lines of the fact some people get heavily invested in FPL to the point at which it affects their mental health. When you get relentless posts egging on users to respond, it's not good for the site and community as a whole. Even more so since more people are spending their time online now.

        I'd personally just log off, switch off from FPL itself, but some aren't able to do so.

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Ok, but I guess that kind of stuff really doesn’t bother me.

          Some stuffs annoys me, but not to the point I’d want someone banned. Unless they were coming out with outright racist or sexist nonsense, but people moaning about their gameweek, isn’t that what this is all about.

          It’s just an extension of blokes sitting in a pub on a Saturday night complaining about how bad their real life football team played. Minus the pint of beer and buxom barmaid, of course. 😀

            Yeah that's fine, I mostly turn a blind eye too - but some people over-step it a bit too much.

            I'm not even suggesting a ban. Made that quite clear. Just a "chill out and stop ruining other people's day by being disruptive 24/7" - and citing the sites own guidelines to do so.

        It's fair point but it's one of the main reasons the older posters aren't around anymore, you're one of the few exceptions.

        I've found downvotes on forums such as this aren't a fantastic thing since it encourages continuous digging at users/topics. Something like an ignore feature is fine.

        Kinda the point I'm trying to get away from here - we don't want to see continuous disruptive posts lie this.

    16. Gnu

      Totally agree and while their at it, delete his FPLVirg account while they are doing that.
      Just an out n out troll.

        I took him on once. Throngs flocked to his defence.

        Empowered by his entourage he immediately posted the most shameful garbage blaming Egyptians for covid in England.

        I had given up trying to stop him. Too many 'fans'

      I totally agree FWIW ; all humble brag posts should be put into a box with the "I'm quitting" posts and the users banned. It's a game, one that relies largely on luck. Nobody is a pro, nobody is a casual - some people spend a lot more time pontificating than others.

      Nonsense post. People act like kids here. If someone trolls you why not just ignore than cry for them to get a ban

        Easy to ignore when it's every now and then. When it's every page it becomes disruptive which is the point I am making (and in FFS own guidelines).

        He did actually say “Not even asking or suggesting a ban, just a simple case of "tone down a little bit buddy".

        If I were a mod, that’s what I’d do. I don’t appreciate Fudgy’s comments myself, but he strikes me as someone who might at least consider toning it down if it came from FFS staff

      Come on, do you not find it provides comedic value?
      I can understand how it can get a bit much sometimes, but it’s come a cult parody - he is a very popular poster (even if for the wrong reasons).

      I purport that he’s probably very intelligent person.

    1. Zladan
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      B.

      You could give McCarthy 3 fixtures and he still wouldn’t beat Martinez.

      If McCarthy still has his place.

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

      That's a tough one. I don't really see a CS for Saints in the DGW, but it may be difficult for Martinez too given Villa's last showing.

      Two fixtures may edge it for me, but Martinez has shown the danger of that already this week.

      He’s great to own when LWB. He’ll get another chance tonight, 6 would feel underwhelming.

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      One does not own Alonso. It's an experience like a fast roller coaster that could actually kill you

      For me a bad one. But some cats just know how to time Alonso for great results.

    Man, I need a Wild Card so badly to purge my turds in a single sitting...

        Martinez
        Stones - Cancelo - Struijk
        Son - Salah - Bruno - Raphina
        Bamford - Kane - Ings

        Fabri - Gundo - White - Mitchell

        1.2m in the bank to do the following in GW26:

        Raphina > Barnes
        Ings > Watkins/DCL

        Cheers!

        Still can't believe WHU have more wins (12) than Liverpool (11) after 24 games, crazy. It's always been fun to support the hammers but it's weird now to expect points out of almost every match, where it used to be "hopefully we won't be embarrassed"!

        Thoughts on Grealish to Raphinha this week to raise funds for Kane next week?

        Grealish and Villa's form has dropped off a bit lately - only 3 goals scored in their last 4 games, albeit 2 assists for Grealish. Raphinha has 4 attacking returns in his last 4 and is about 2m cheaper. And there's no way I'm selling Salah, Bruno, Son or Gundogan.

          Dallas price rising tonight, so got to make decision now:
          If getting Dallas for DGW25 , I would need an extra downgrade hit to accommodate both of Kane+Son who I plan to get for DGW26 (no WC ...). So basically:

          A) Dallas + Son -4 pts.
          B) Struijk + Son
          C) Dallas + Maddison/Barnes or the like

              Actually, just realising that -4 point hit could just as well be Coufal to Struijk , hoping he plays both!

                A lot of people miss the fact that we sold Courtois for £35m and bought Kepa for £71m in the same summer.

                Call him the £36m keeper.

              Depends on your country.

              I have been using exodus for three years. Very happy with it

              Bitstamp..or if you don't care about small fees then revolut is by far the easiest and quickest

                What would you recommend looking at? Is Dodgcoin worth it?

                  I only have bitcoin and ether. It gets very loose on the smaller coins imo. I stay away from them. Most are trash

            On a serious note, why isn't anything being done about lineups from managers such as Tuchel? Or at least not enough?

            - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

            FFS T&Cs - 8. TEAM PICKING GUIDELINES:

            7.3. You agree that the following behaviour guidelines and rules in relation to any team lineup selected:

            These three points specifically:

            - Be civil and considerate of other FPL managers teams.

            - Do not be disruptive, offensive or abusive such behaviour is outlawed.

            - Player selections that are adjudged to have the intent of deliberately provoking an extreme or negative reaction may be removed at our discretion. Managers who are adjudged to frequently select players with such intentions may have their posting abilities removed permanently.

            - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

            I'm all for the occasional ribbing, or the odd gloat here and there but dropping both Chillwell and Mendy for Alonzo and KEPA of all people is certainly an example of "provoking negative reactions" (not least when he's done it in consecutive games).
