Comparing Alexander-Arnold and Robertson’s FPL points potential for 2021/22

Just one point separated Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) last season but the former remains more expensive than the latter in Fantasy Premier League ahead of 2021/22.

Ever since the two Liverpool full-backs emerged as premium defenders, their hefty prices have often forced managers to decide which one is more worthy of investment.

Only Stuart Dallas scored more points among defenders than the pair last season but their latest prices have, once again, made a double-up a challenging prospect for our budgets.

Accordingly, ahead of the new campaign, we have compared Robertson and Alexander-Arnold for creativity and goal threat to see if either has the edge over the other.

    First Attempt

    Sanchez 4.0
    TAA Digne 4.5 4.5 4.0
    KDB Bruno Havertz Jota 4.5
    Watkins Antonio Pukki

      Grealish is a must

      1. Weeb Kakashi

        3 months, 15 hours ago

        No pens no set pieces. Quality player. But Must is an overstatement.

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        He's a must if he goes to City for 80m. Otherwise nah.

          Yeah I reckon this would make him a worse option

      3. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Buendia is cheaper.

    Who's my best captain option today from these lot?

    1. Gnabry

    7.5m for a def scoring 160 pts.
    No thanks.
    I prefer JWP + 1 m

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      With the fixtures he has, VvD coming back and the generous pricing of everyone, I can easily spare the funds.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        cool, enjoy.
        Give 10 or so weeks.
        I will get Pukki I think.

        1. Aston VII iia hahaha
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Pukki without Buendia. Hmmmm. Norwich this seasons Sheffield.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          With those fixtures? Really?!? 😉

      Hope everyone thinks like this

  4. GreennRed

    This has to be non-league clickbait?

    Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw; Philips, Rice, Saka; Grealish, Sterling, Kane.

    https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/probable-england-xi-czech-republic-24372984

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Looks fairly reasonable tbh.

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        Saka can be decent in attack but can also play wingback. Essentially starting 3.5 attack-minded players v the Czech Republic at home. They're not playing the Brazil 1970 team. I have Schick so not happy ye will park the double-decker 🙂

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 15 hours ago

          Saka is an attacking player, he just played wing back because Arsenal had no one else other than Tierney.

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 15 hours ago

            I know that. Just amplifying the pragmaticness (it's a wordish) of Southgate. Fair play, I like the man. If it gets Maguire more match fit and England further in the tournament more power to him. Entertaining football is for television, getting results to progress is what matters.

    2. ivantys
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Sterling starts again rofl England really looking for a draw ro secure 2nd.

      1. Yank Revolution
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Timing.

    3. Sterling Archer
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      All for Saka starting! lots of plastic fans will not like his inclusion, but he's earned it!

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      His persistence with Sterling is so tiresome

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        He won ye 3/4 points so far though. I was surprised he played that well v Croatia though after a poor season. Pretty much all the attack was poor v Scotland. What has Sancho done wrong though?

      2. Tony Moon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 hours ago

        Well he's got us two wins!!

  5. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Sarr or Toney?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      I like Watford's fixtures better so I've gone Sarr. Also like the 7.5-8m strikers too much to find room for Toney. DCL, Antonio, Iheanacho, Watkins, Wilson all look really good.

  6. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear

    Any new rules for FPL?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Cups

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

        1. GreennRed

          A fragrant event.

  7. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
    • 8 Years

    Once upon a time there was hype surrounding FPL launch

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      I know. Way too early and a Euros

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      8m teams, 2m players, no need for hype. 😉

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        I wonder how many players left after Christmas

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 15 hours ago

          1m

  8. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Think I’ll go old school and set my team up for the first 3 weeks only.

    1. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      You will still probably end up wildcarding Gw2

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        I did last season.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      GW7 is the fixture swing so that's when I want to WC.

      1. Sigurdnor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Jimenez on wolves is someone to keep an eye on. One of my fpl plans includes him, so i advise you to keep an eye on him for GW4 an onwards.

  9. Levi's 501
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Auto pick front 3 of Laca, Cavani & Werner. Would be quite good if they were nailed.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Yeah same.

  10. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Raphinha (mun, EVE, bur) or Buendia (wat, NEW, BRE) to start with? Obviously prefer Raph over the season but can easily make the swap after Villa's juicy home games.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      I don't think Raphinha is going anywhere in my team tbh. He's clearly undervalued, tried and tested and if anything, he underdelivered last season.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        +100 Raphinia hopefully set for big things - looked a special player last year

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 15 hours ago

          Agreed with both comments but that doesn't necessarily mean he's better for the first 3 GWs.

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 14 hours ago

            Not for one second will I personally be entertaining the thought of trying to get better than Raphinia for 3x gameweeks and booking a FT

            He could have Bayern/PSG/Atletico in the first 3 weeks and still be good enough to get returns

            He actually has Old Trafford (Leeds scored 2 there last year), managerless Everton at home, and Turf Moor (Leeds scored 4 there last year) which aren’t terrible at all

            Then Anfield (they scored 3 there with VVD playing) in GW4 before the “turn” in GW5

            He’s a player I can be patient with if needs be

    2. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Both

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 hours ago

        Yes, I have both in my first draft 🙂

    3. Top Mark.S
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      I will not start with him though he is great.

      Getting off to a good start is huge.

      I always play fixtures first then change once firm s established.

      I like your approach

    • 12 Years

    Nailed on PL players folks?

    For me its:

    Fernandes
    Salah
    Watkins
    Fofana
    Sanchez if we know he is Brighton's no.1

    Obviously really like the look of Digne, Toney, Shaw but not sure they are a look.

    Doubt I'll be going near KDB or Kane...

    Maddison (£7.0) and Sarr (£6.0) look good value.

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      It's June - too much will happen over the next 6 weeks. Enjoy July, don't risk tying yourself up in knots now, and come back in August.

      1. Az
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        can't really do that my friend! 😉

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Sanchez
      Digne
      Salah
      Fernandes
      DCL
      Watkins

      Will definitely have a Liverpool defender as well. Most likely Trent.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Sanchez
      TAA
      Bruno
      Salah
      Grealish
      Raphinia
      Watkins
      + Two of (Antonio, Nacho, Wilson, DCL, Bamford)

      A load of rotating 4.5 defenders to complete the squad (A few of Lamptey, Ayling, Taylor, Coady, Fofana, White etc)

      1. Az
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        boom. see you in a few months.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 hours ago

          Until Kane goes to City, Grealish goes somewhere and everything gets ripped up to start again 😆

      2. Aston VII iia hahaha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 hours ago

        Doubling up on Brighton too much. I prefer Lamptey. Do you think Dean H is a waste of 0.5?

  13. antis0cial
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Any love for Rodrigo at 6.5? Not great fixtures to start but Leeds very attacking and he must be in with a chance of becoming a regular starter?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Surely you just get Raphinha at the same price from the same team.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Seemed to be made of a very fine porcelain/glass-type material that would shatter at the very slightest impact

      Not sure that’s the best physical fit for Bielsa’s all action murderball

  14. ★Kuntheman★
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    I made my team with 4.0 to spare and that just doesn’t feel right

    Sanchez (Foster)
    TAA Digne Shaw Lamptey (Williams)
    Salah Fernandes Buendia Raphinha Trossard
    Watkins (4.5 4.5)

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      The 4-5-1 sure saves a lot of cash, doesn't it?

      1. ★Kuntheman★
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        It’s wild! I’ve spent the 4.0 upgrading Williams to Dias and 4.5 FWD to Toney but it just feels weird having that on the bench.

        If only I had the 1.0 more for Kane(MCI) over Watkins

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 14 hours ago

          You're grav just reminded me of the FPL passing of Aguero the Great. We should mark the occasion.

          1. ★Kuntheman★
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 14 hours ago

            Never changing it. What a player he was for FPL lol easy captaincies all the time

    2. Top Mark.S
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      That's cause its crap. Dont worry you will use most of your budget by gw1

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years

        Subtlety

        1. Top Mark.S
          • 4 Years

          I like to cut to the chase

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years

            Fair enufski! Don't waste time on idle chitchat and niceties 😉

      3. ★Kuntheman★

  15. CostaCoffee
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    If Tammy gets a move to a West Ham/Villa type team he could have a great season at 6.5, hope we don't let go of him though, on a permanent at least

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      I think he needs to be playing if he has ambition. A loan could work, but not sure how much Tuchel fancies him long term.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Why do you want to keep him? Definitely not good enough for Chelsea.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      Tammy needs to be mid-table/bottom-half, and playing every week - that’s his level

      He’ll never play enough minutes to develop if he’s at a champions league club

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        I also doubt he’d start every game even at Villa or West Ham - he’d needs injuries to Watkins and Antonio

        Probably needs to go another rung down the table imo

    4. Sleepless in Settle FPL
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 14 hours ago

      back to Palace

      1. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        back?

  16. Sleepless in Settle FPL
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 15 hours ago

    Pretty sure Dallas will have very high ownership at the start of season, casuals will look at his last season points + price

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      And as we mock the casuals he'll inevitably score twice in the first three games.

      1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        and his price will rise rocket to 6M, that's how the game work

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 hours ago

      How many points would he have got if he was classed as a midfielder last season?

      1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 15 hours ago

        13x

        1. Sleepless in Settle FPL
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 hours ago

          13x-15x

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 14 hours ago

        About 130

        He’d have lost 36 on cleansheets and 8 on goals, with probably another 6-7 lost on baps

        Then he’d have gained 13 from goals conceded deductions

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 14 hours ago

          I.e. he’d be about 15-20 points behind Soucek from last season

          And we all know how frustrating big Tommy was, despite his great value

        2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

    I have a higher ID number than last year, which was still in the tens of thousands. My season is already ruined.

      With all the good FPL tools out there, gaining an easy to remember ID was my only priority today!

      Mine was ruined before it started but I'll still enjoy it all the same.
