FPL’s joint-cheapest player hauls as Hodgson discusses benching of Guaita

CRYSTAL PALACE 3-2 ASTON VILLA

by Colm Hayes

  • Goals: Christian Benteke (£5.5m), Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m), Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) | John McGinn (£5.5m), Anwar El Ghazi (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Mitchell, Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) x2 | Ollie Watkins (£6.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitchell x3, Eze x2, Benteke x1

MITCHELL-IN STAR DISPLAY

Despite this being a low-key game for many reasons, FPL always has the ability to create joy (and pain in equal measure) despite the occasion.

Tyrick Mitchell (£3.8m) owners will have been particularly exuberant on Sunday afternoon.

It was already looking like a decent day at half-time for the budget defender, who will have made many starting XIs due to the Blank Gameweek 36 schedule.

The left-back, on his fourth consecutive league start, gained a first-half assist after Christian Benteke (£5.5m) headed his cross past Emi Martinez (£5.4m).

“It’s been an amazing season. It’s been a dream come true and I’m just buzzing. I didn’t think I would feature this much and I’m just thankful to the manager. I’ve learnt a lot, how hard it is in the Premier League week in, week out but I feel I’ve got a lot more confident.” – Tyrick Mitchell

But the best was yet to come, as Mitchell popped up in the box on 84 minutes to shoulder home Eberechi Eze‘s (£5.8m) shot to give Palace all three points.

“I was just gambling. I tried to go back post for the first cross and then when it went back out I thought I’d stay around. I just tried to be in the right place. I knew it hit my shoulder, for a second I was a bit scared [it would be disallowed].” – Tyrick Mitchell

That winning strike also earned Mitchell three bonus points, much to the further delight of his owners – who only had to endure a quick VAR check for handball before the goal was given.

On the defender, Hodgson said after full time:

Tyrick Mitchell got a round of applause when he walked into the room. That is something more deserving than that. His performance today was outstanding in every respect. To get an assist and the winner against a team of Aston Villa’s quality – happy days for him. Second half he combined extremely well with Eze and (Wilfried) Zaha. Often a part of chances.

He has got in the team before and had to drop out through injury. What he needs now is an injury-free period but he has all the qualities I think needed to be a very good Premier League left-back.

GET THE GUAITA

Vicente Guaita (£4.8m) was among the substitutes for the first time since 2018/19, with Jack Butland (£4.5m) handed a rare run-out:

Ahead of kick-off, Roy Hodgson said of his goalkeeping selection:

Jack Butland, we wanted to make certain he got a game, at least, before the end of the season. So Vicente stepped aside for him.

The operative words from that Hodgson quote are “at least”; one could read into the manager’s comments that may Butland earn another start over the final two Gameweeks of the season.

In his post-match press conference, Hodgson added:

Not a question of rotating the keepers at this moment. Vicente has been the No 1 keeper but it’s nice to know that the faith we have in Jack to play, nice to see that justified. He’s had to wait a long time. (Butland was) good, very good. Made one wonder-save, think it was offside anyway. But I thought he was very good.

SHOTS FIRED

While FPL bosses may not be targeting either of these teams for their assets, there is encouragement for attacking players facing both sides.

Between them, the two defences allowed over 40 efforts on goal during their Blank Gameweek 36 clash.

Crystal Palace face Arsenal (H) and Liverpool (a) in their final two matches of the season, while Aston Villa take on Spurs (a) and Chelsea (H).

The defensive displays from both sides in Gameweek 36 bode particularly well for those planning to captain Spurs and Liverpool players – namely Harry Kane (£11.8m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) – in Gameweeks 37 and 38, respectively.

While investment is unlikely at this stage, Jack Grealish (£7.5m) could make the Villa XI for one of those two matches.

The midfielder was brought on after 63 minutes on Sunday, earning around a half-hour of pitch time.

Asked if Grealish will start in one of Gameweek 37 or Gameweek 38, Dean Smith responded:

I’m hopeful. He’s pushing, he’s had no reaction in his first game (against Everton) or today so he’s building those minutes.

Matt Cash (£5.0m) is out for the remainder of the season, while Tyrone Mings (£5.4m) is expected back for Gameweek 37.

“Cashy will miss the last two games. It is a recurrence of a hamstring injury. Nowhere near as bad as last time but enough to put him out for a couple of weeks. Tyrone should be fit for Wednesday.” – Dean Smith


Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Butland; Mitchell, Cahill, Kouyaté, Ward; Schlupp, McCarthy (Tomkins 73′), Eze; Zaha, Benteke, Townsend.

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett, Hause, Konsa, Elmohamady; McGinn, D Luiz; El Ghazi (Wesley 87′), Ramsey (Davis 85′), B Traoré (Grealish 63′); Watkins.


SUNDAY’S OTHER GAMEWEEK 36 ACTION

by SkontoRigga

We’ll have full Scout Notes on the day’s other three Premier League matches to come on Monday.

For now, though, our whistle-stop tour around the Gameweek 36 fixtures at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Hawthorns and Goodison Park rounds up the major talking points.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1-2 LIVERPOOL

A dramatic, emotional, last-gasp goal from Alisson (£5.9m) kept UEFA Champions League qualification in Liverpool’s grasp at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

The Brazilian nodded in Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s (£7.7m) stoppage-time corner to hand the Reds all three points.

Six points for a goal seems like scant reward for such a rare occurrence but attacking returns and bonus points for Alisson and Alexander-Arnold at least compensated for yet another clean sheet loss: Jurgen Klopp’s side have recorded just four shut-outs in their last 18 matches.

Despite this, Alexander-Arnold has only blanked in one of his last eight appearances.

Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) has delivered a goal or assist in each of his last six starts, meanwhile, and it was his beautifully taken strike from a Sadio Mane (£11.7m) lay-off that restored parity after Hal Robson-Kanu‘s (£5.2m) opener.

Matheus Pereira (£5.4m) continued his fine form, with an assist for Albion’s goal his eighth goal contribution in the last seven Gameweeks.

And for those that missed the news: an injured Diogo Jota (£7.0m) wasn’t involved in the Black Country and will now be sidelined for the rest of 2020/21.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 2-0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
Injured Jota out for the season as Mane returns to Liverpool starting XI

Harry Kane (£11.8m) set a new personal best for Fantasy Premier League points in a single campaign, with his goal in Tottenham Hotspur’s comfortable 2-0 win set to take him to the 230-mark once bonus is added.

Kane’s total of 35 goals and assists combined is just one short of his record set in 2016/17.

A goal was the bare minimum he could have expected: his total of seven shots was the joint-highest of Gameweek 36, with two of those efforts striking the woodwork.

Gareth Bale (£9.2m) made it 10 attacking returns in his last five starts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, meanwhile, claiming the assist for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg‘s (£4.9m) goal when his saved shot fell into the path of the Dane.

In a further indictment of Jose Mourinho’s tenure, Spurs had 24 shots and 13 attempts on target in this match – both figures surpassed any amount they had in a single Premier League fixture under their former boss.

EVERTON 0-1 SHEFFIELD UNITED
FPL's joint-cheapest player hauls as Hodgson discusses Guaita benching

Everton sank to a new low at Goodison Park on Sunday, losing to relegated Sheffield United.

The Toffees’ have kept only two clean sheets on home soil all season and they were unable to add to their meagre total against the relegated Blades, a team that had taken only four points from a possible 51 heading into the game.

Teenage striker Daniel Jebbison (£4.5m) did the damage against the Toffees, tapping home from a Jack Robinson (£4.2m) cross – a goal that directly benefitted precisely 0% of the top 10k but one that would have caused much amusement to FPL managers without an Everton defender in their side.

    1. Tonyawesome69

      Son - up against a leaky Villa team. Cash (RB) is injured so Son will be up against Elmo which looks great for Son

    16 pts up on the old rival. 4 different players so pretty tight

    Lingard + Watkins to Greenwood and a Vydra

    Could just block his players but bad form

    Play it safe and save ft, or take a small risk with greenwood in?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Sweep the leg.

      1. Clintymints
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        He had Mitchell this week so I'm well goosed!

        Could get Mitchell and Greenwood for Konsa and Jesse, but that's taking the p!ss

    2. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Would block

    3. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Greenwood is a good shout in my humble

      I kept him on my bench last week on a WC

  4. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    I’m considering Smith Rowe instead of Harrison or Raphinha. Someone talk me out of it.

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Sounds good

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Nah, go for it.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Na not for me. Prefer Raphinha

  5. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Narrowed down my options. Which one would you go for?
    A. Jota to Raphinha
    B. Jota to Son
    C. Nacho to Antonio

    1FT 2.5ITB
    Mendy
    TAA Shaw Dallas Rudiger
    Jota Salah Bruno Greenwood Lingard
    Kane

    Nightmare season. 4 straight red arrows down to 132k OR. Who can help me finishing top 100k: Lindgard, Bamford or DCL. Start one.

    1. DRIZ ✅
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Bamford

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      3 are not great at the moment. Probably DCL even though Everton are at home at the home form is poor

    3. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Sorry. Bench 1, start 2.

      1. Eastman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        I would bench Bamford

  7. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    need defender 5.6m or less to go with Dallas & Phillips

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      WanB/Shaw?

      Cress/Couf?

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Cresswell or Coufal?

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Ha. Like minds.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Cresswell or Coufal.

  8. james 101
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Do we reckon Wood will score against Pool next week?

    8 goals and 3 assists in his last 9 games.

    Hasn’t generally scored so many against the big 6 or 7 teams this years though

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I don't see why not. I don't trust Liverpool to keep a CS in the last 2. Expect Wood and Benteke to score!

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Cheers. Considering whether to give Lingard or Woods the last spot in my team

        Or swap in somebody else

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      BUR were bad this GW, crazy as they looked attacking few GWs prior to this one ...

      1. james 101
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        They’ve been impressive - but especially against weaker teams

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          LEE got them in the pocket tactically

          1. james 101
            • 9 Years
            4 months, 12 days ago

            Yes. And then Leeds went all murder ball on them.

  9. Jonny HOW SON?
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    On who and in which GW would you use the TC?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Kane GW2

      1. Jonny HOW SON?
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Ah okey. I'll save it for next season then

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          You didn’t say anything about remaining GWs. Almost everyone at the beach now so probably someone outside the usual suspects. Greenwood vs Fulham?

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Last gameweek on kun aguero

    3. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Salah or Kane or Bruno this week could be good

      Or throw it on Bale

    4. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      And it's too late, baby, now it's too late
      Though you really now should have played it

      (How about Chris Wood GW38?)

      1. Jonny HOW SON?
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I think I'll most likely go Mo Salah in 38

        1. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 12 days ago

          With any luck it will be like GW1 all over again.

  10. POTATO

    Martinez Forster
    TAA Digne Dallas AWB Holding
    Salah Son Lingard Sigurdsson Jota*
    Kane Bamford Iheanacho
    1FT £1M

    Obvious transfer would be:
    a) Jota* > up to £7.8M mid - Greenwood, Torres or Harrison

    But I'm not convinced by Bamford and Iheanacho for this week's fixtures and wondering if I should instead go with:

    b) Bamford > Rodrigo, Wood, Adams or another up to £7.1M forward.

    Temped to get Torres as my bench is strong enough to withstand Pep roulette.

    1. Efan Ekoku Pops

      Hopefully less than 60. That's what I'm ahead . I've no Kane though and worried.

      15-20pts max. Captain key.

      10 - they’re top for a reason & they will rely on sensibility over the last 2 weeks while you’ll rely on luck.

  12. Ruinenlust

    Will Guita stert next game?

    1. Pep's Money Laundry

      Its sound like from what Hodgson said

    2. The Suspended One

      4 months, 12 days ago

      Yes

  13. Zlatan F.C

    Play Rudiger or Coufal? Have Mendy in goal

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Coufal

  14. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Surprised Kane was a bit overlooked on Blackbox for captaincy. Got a goal today, going for the golden Boot, Villa just conceded 3 away to Palace.

    He's the strongest option in my opinion.

    Thoughts? Is Salah the obvious pick for a Non Fernandes owner?

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Kane or Salah mate.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I’d be surprised if Greenwood isn’t up there.

    3. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I was going to go for Salah but having second thoughts after watching Match of the Day!! Kane could have had a big score today with a bit more luck!! Definitely tempted to captain him now!!

    4. lifes a pitch
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Ive got a tc to use and im tempted by kane but most likely will wait for Salah Palace. That was a weird performance from Villa, dont think it will be next game.

      1. Viper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        How have you held it that long 😆

        I'd hold off for Salah in 38 if I were you

      2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Conceded 4 goals vs Man Utd before that. Conceded 2 goals vs West Brom before that. They even conceded vs Fulham. It’s not weird.

    5. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Agree

  15. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Current team

    Martinez
    TAA, Maguire*, Holding
    Bruno, Salah, Rashford, Lingard
    Nacho, Kane, Watkins
    Subs: Forster, Struijk, Veltman*, Jota*

    0.0 ITB

    A. Maguire => Dallas/Shaw
    B. Something else?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Shaw

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah a Shaw

        Unless you can do Watkins to Antoino

  16. The Royal Robin
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    If you had to bench one?

    A) Iheanacho
    B) Bamford

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      A

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        You reckon Bamford starts?

    2. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I'm looking to bench both this week, though it will require a midfield transfer (se above)
      I get the feeling Bamford may be benched in favour of Rodrigo

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      B probably

      Nacho can win the match vs chelsea

      A.

      IMO, despite Rodrigo's impressive cameo, Bielsa seems to have a formula he sticks to so I'd expect Bam to start again.

    Is Chris Wood the best striker punt for final day ?

    1. Viper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Still prefer Bamford or Antonio myself

    2. fusen

      It would seem it

      I've been planning on getting him in and their poor performance this week hasn't changed my mind

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      No. Antonio

    Anyone going without Bruno this GW ??

    I currently don't have him and it scares me, all my ML rivals do (I'm in position for a prize), but would need to take -4 to get him in for Son.

    Worth it ?

      No, he was incredibly lucky in the TGW.

      Are you defending a lead or?

      Bruno is great tbh

      1. FCSB
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Well the leader is 30 ahead which could prove hard to catch, I’m 3rd but 2nd is a nice prize and only a handful of points away, then I’m about 20 odd off 4th and 5th which are minor prizes.

        I want to stay in the top 3 at least for sure!!

    Raphinha or Harrison?

    1. james 101
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      R

    2. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      H

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Raph

  20. fusen
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    I really don't get the Harrison love-in.

    He has had no FPL consistency recently but due to a good score this week people want to jump on.

    It isn't that he is bad, but how likely is he to haul two or three weeks in a row?

    Same with Torres. People cashing last week's points on players who don't have multi-week consistent form

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      They scored this week, this is FFS, what further explanation needed?

    2. POTATO
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 12 days ago

      There's only 2 games left. If you've had a mediocre season finish like me then there's nothing to lose taking a short-term punt on Torres or Harrison. My Leeds trio in GW1 was going to be Dallas, Harrison and Bamford up to the point the fixtures were announced...

  21. dmcnam12

    A) Mendy, Jota -> Meslier, Greenwood
    B) Jota, Iheanacho -> Raphinha, Antonio

    ?? both for free

    Siggy to greenwood for free? Will greenwood start vs fulham and will you capt greenwood or just go for kane/salah ?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Yes
      Yes
      No

  24. 420king
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    If Watkins drops in price tonight I won't be able to afford Antonio with my FT. Do I go for it tonight?

    It would give me this team:

    Martinez
    Dallas Shaw Phillips
    Salah Bruno Greenwood Son Lingard
    Kane Antonio
    (3.9, Iheanacho, Holgate, Veltman)

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      That’s a yes from me

  25. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    In 32 games this season Coufal has 8 assists and has been part of 8 clean sheets. Returns at least 4 points in half of his games, but never more than 8.

    Seems very unlikely statistically...

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      He had an assist against wba last time and missed his only game of the season when wham drew 0-0 vs Sou.

      Could these next two matches be the opportunity for an assist and cs in the same game and a double digit haul?

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        He played almost a second striker last game. So attacking

  26. Fantasy man on the top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Whats the best transfer?

    A) Jota to Torres

    B) Jota to Willock

    C) Maddison to Torres

    D) Maddison to Willock?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      None

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Jota + Maddison to two other players which are not Torres or Willock depending on the rest of your team

    3. MidTableFantasy
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Gotta have better options than those

      1. Fantasy man on the top
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        4 months, 12 days ago

        Cant afford Son. But Lingard?

  27. Viper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Maybe irrelevant but..

    Kane has 7 goals & 2 assists vs. Aston Villa in 7 appearances

    Salah has 1 goal & 2 assists vs. Burnley in 6 appearances. The goal came at Anfield

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Burnley are not even bear that defensive stability from the past and Liverpool might end on same pts as Leicester at the end of the season and the goal difference will decide so that means Liverpool will attack to the end.

      Only if WBA did it today 🙁

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        *not even near.

        Also I am on Kane captain but I am reconsidering

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      I don’t think that’s irrelevant, but both teams are a bit different this year.

      The Cash injury has me seriously considering Son. Kane probably safer bet tho.

  28. Daniel Jebbison
    • 12 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Bench DCL and get Greenwood or save a transfer and play DCL?

    1. Viper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Play DCL

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      play DCL

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        But Greenwood plays Fulham and DCL has been poor lately. He blanked against Sheffield no?

        1. Runaway
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          4 months, 12 days ago

          Greenwood confuses me as well but Fulham can make what Sheffield/WBA (almost) did today and benching DCL against WOL does not sound good at all..

    3. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Play DCL so you can sell him for Antonio next week

      1. Daniel Jebbison
        • 12 Years
        4 months, 12 days ago

        I am selling him next week anyway

  29. Runaway
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Kane-Son-Bale owner here and my master plan was ditching one of Son/Kane for Greenwood this GW and the other one for Mane before GW38 but now with the look of Villa and Spurs today, keeping them one more week makes much more sense. What would you do?

    A) Keep the trio and roll the FT
    B) Ditch one for Greenwood

    Team atm:
    Meslier
    TAA Digne Dallas
    Salah Son Bale Lingard
    Kane DCL Bamford
    3.9 ESR Coufal Mitchell

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Keep keep.

      If you must then sell Son

    2. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      it was Son/Bale not Son/Kane, I would never ditch Kane when he is in a golden boot race 🙂

  30. Fantasy man on the top
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    4 months, 12 days ago

    Leading my ML by 30 pts and have 1 ft

    Who should I replace?

    Mendy (Forster)

    TAA, Dallas, Shaw, Godfrey (Struijk)

    Salah, Fernandes, Greenwood (Maddison, Jota)

    Kane, Benteke, Bamford

    Should Maddison or Jota go?

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 12 days ago

      Jota
