International Football

How many minutes did FPL assets play over the March international break?

The final international break of 2020/21 reached its conclusion in midweek and it is not just injury and illness that may impact on player availability in Gameweek 30 – it’s game-time, too.

Our Team News tab and our Friday press conference round-up (in both article and video form) will cover everything on the fitness front but it is fatigue we’re focusing more on in this article as we look at how many minutes each FPL asset clocked up while on international duty.

Some nations crammed in a triple-header of games over the last fortnight, with more than a handful of top-flight players taking part in all three of their respective countries’ matches.

As well as on-field exertions, long-haul flights back from further afield may also be a consideration ahead of Easter weekend – although the cancellation of World Cup qualifiers in South America means that this is less of an issue than usual.

MOST MINUTES PLAYED

There were 16 players who lasted 90 minutes in all three of their respective countries’ qualifiers or friendlies, with some big names among that contingent.

Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m), Ruben Dias (£6.1m), Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) and Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) have significant ownerships in Fantasy Premier League, although all bar Gundogan have been immune to rotation at club-level this season.

Manchester City’s players were made to work the hardest over the last fortnight, with ten of their squad racking up at least 200 minutes of game-time on the continent.

To the best of our knowledge, these were the players – all of whom played at least two-and-a-half matches – who amassed the most minutes over the international break:

FURTHEST TRAVELLED AND LATEST RETURNEES

Many of the matches that took place over the international break, including the friendlies involving the USA, were staged in Europe.

Players such as Sadio Mane (£11.8m), Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m) have all been in African Cup of Nations qualifying duty in their home continent, meanwhile, although all those games were wrapped up by Tuesday afternoon at the latest.

Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) was the sole Premier League representative involved for his country in Asia, meanwhile, although he too had rounded his involvement off by Tuesday.

It was the Europe-based World Cup qualifiers, friendlies and under-21 matches on Wednesday that were the last to take place, with England, Germany, France, Scotland and Spain among the nations in action.

The dates for all of the international games in March are available here.

CLUB-BY-CLUB ROUND-UP

The team-by-team guide below breaks down the minutes that each player has played per international match over the last week or so, with a total given at the end.

Any players with an asterisk next to their names withdrew from their countries’ squads either midway through the international break or picked up an injury at the back-end of it.

As mentioned earlier, we’ll have further details on any lingering fitness concerns in our pre-Gameweek 30 team news round-up on Friday.

    Sterling to son
    Or sterling to kdb( i think kdb is a super differential)

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Son, if he is passed fit. One less transfer next gw, if you do not have WC as well.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Kevin for next 2, then switch

  2. sunzip14

    No idea on how not to waste my FT before I WC31 (1FT, 0.1 itb). Was always the plan to BB30 but not sure about that now as well. Suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    Martinez
    Targett, Struijk, Konsa
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Raphinha
    DCL, (K)ane, Bamford

    Forster, Gundo, Stones, Lowton

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Worth a hit to do any of this and BB?

      A) Stones + Gundo> Lindelof/Coufal/Rudiger? + Lingard (-4)
      B) Stones + Gundo> Alonso+ Soucek (-4)

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Not much to do, save FT just in case you want to delay WC.

      1. sunzip14
        • 4 Years

        Thank you Holmes. Don't think the above transfers for a hit is worth it to get done with the BB chip?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          A can work

  3. Echoes
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Potentially already on a -4 after doing Auba + Dunk -> Bruno + Rudiger tonight. Is it worth doing Bale -> Son for a additional -4 or do I stick with Bale? Also have Kane.

      1. Echoes
          2 months, 14 days ago

          That Son -> Bale move in 29 for a -4 has to be one of the worst transfers I've made this season

        Rate my GW 31 WCT?

        Auba to Bruno or Havertz as a one week punt before WC31?

          Bruno

          Bruno is not a punt.

          A or B.
          Son/Alonso both good options.

          Probably A just about as long as he is declared fit 100%.

            Interesting- thanks

          Which TWO should I bench from these?

          A) Grealish
          B) Bale
          C) Gundogan
          D) Cancelo
          E) Stones

          Currently on A + D with Grealish being first on bench. Alternatively I could WC this week instead of next

          anyone here throwing a dice with playing bale against NEW?

          I'll have Son, Bale and Kane triple up against NEW, seeing Son in training, in hopeful he'll play and NEW is the perfect team to target with an attack triple up.

            Hard to see Bale starting, might not even get minutes off the bench. He’s really peed off Jose

              Agree with this

                I was just waiting to get the all-clear to sell Bale for son. The photo's out this morning showing Son's fine, but too late to miss Bale's price-drop! For me, Kane and Son will be sufficient for the upcoming games.

          Aerola Dias Azpi Tross

          This worth a BB? Or save BB for after my WC next week?

          1. Thomas Magnum
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Save for after WC imo, can't see Areola or Tross get enough points for it to be worth it

          Best 1 week punt on BB?
          A) Alonso (triple up with Mendy & Azpi
          B) Robertson
          C) Digne
          D) United defender

            Thanks all, need a Stones replacement for the BB for a -4. Just not sure which option to go with

              Quit mucking about with FPL and get out there and solve those crimes 😆

          Do all of these start? Playing Bench boost.

          Auba
          Mount
          Toby
          Cancelo
          Forster

          Have 1 FT to replace any of the players above and BB.

          Thoughts?

            Wouldn't be surprised if one or 2 are rotated but hard to say which ones

          Morning all.

          Shaw or Azpi for this weekend?

          Currently no Man U or Chelsea defenders.

          I plan to wildcard next week as it stands and will have both next week regardless?

            Current 11 and bench order if that helps ...

            Martinez
            Coufal Dallas Digne
            Bruno Raphinha Mount Gundo
            Kane DCL Watkins

            Yes 31 or 32 ... when else will you use ... especially if you still have your BB/FH as well ... well done for still having those to play with.

          Bit of help lads?

          Martinez
          Reguilon / Dallas / Rudiger
          Raphinha / Bale / Fernandez / Lingard
          Kane / Bamford / DCL

          Bench: Stones / Grealish / Dunk

          I’m WCing next week so have a one week punt. Do I:

          1) Dunk to Alonso and bench Lingard
          2) Bale to Son
          3) something else

          1. Eh, just one more thing ...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            B) I think wait for team news and do Son in Bale out

            1. Merlinho
              • 12 Years
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Yeah seems like the sensible move right - I have decent bench coverage too.

          Planning to WC next week. What transfer(s) would you suggest for this week? I am thinking about Che defence atm.

          Pope Sanchez
          Cancelo Dias Targett Dallas Coufal
          Salah Bruno Soucek Gundo Raphinha
          Kane Bamford Watkins

            I would go Shaw or Azpi in for Cancelo.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          (Pope) (Lingard - Stones - Dunk) 1 FT - 2.4 ITB

          A) Dunk -> Azpi
          B) Pope -> Mendy
          C) Bale -> KDB
          D) Any other suggestions?

            Just realized I'm 0.1 short of KDB. C will have to be Bale -> Sterling or Auba.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year

              Jota is a better option than both Sterling and Auba. Just because they are expensive doesn’t make them good options

          How important is a City defender? Could bring in Shaw for Stones on WC.

          Current team is:

          Leno Button
          Stones Dallas Coady Rudiger N.Williams
          KDB Bruno Jota Lingard Burke
          Kane Vardy DCL

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 14 days ago

            If Stones and Rudiger are rotated and miss out you’ll be fielding 2 defenders. Make Williams a playing defender at least

          Auba to Bruno (BRI) or Havertz (WBA) with my ft before I WC next week?

            • 6 Years

            Havertz a nice punt. Brighton are solid and Utd haven't been too free scoring lately

        24. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          On WC .
          Just working out whether I should start off with DCL or Iheanacho in my squad.
          A). With DCL. Plan on holding for 30,31 then moving to Iheanacho.
          This means playing DCL for CPY, bri but benching Jota v ars, Shaw v tot.

          B) with Iheanacho. He would benched for 30. Then play one of Iheanacho v WHM or Shaw v tot in 31.

          DCL has the better fixtures over the 2 games but option B saves a TRANSFER.
          I’m torn.
          A or B?

          1. zon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            B and save that transfer. You'll get to see how Lei line up with Maddison (and later Barnes) back

          2. FALSE PROFIT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Same thoughts. I think I will be going Iheanacho in 32. I still have to calculate if I have enough tfrs (with injury transfer spares) to remove GW33 non players. My greatest concern is if they move end of season fixtures to accomodate all teams getting a home game with crowds.
