Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 5 round-up: Saturday goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) moved to the top of the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points table with a third double-digit haul in five Gameweeks, scoring and assisting in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Ivan Toney (£6.3m) also rewarded his patient remaining owners with two attacking returns in Brentford’s 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Ismaila Sarr‘s (£6.0m) brace saw him record the day’s joint-highest FPL score – a feat that Matthew Cash (£5.0m) matched in Aston Villa’s 3-0 win over Everton.

Ferran Torres (£7.2m) was an unused substitute as Southampton held Manchester City to a goalless draw, while Arsenal registered back-to-back 1-0 wins thanks to budget midfielder Martin Odegaard‘s (£5.5m) free-kick.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 5 fixtures.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

FPL Gameweek 5 round-up: Saturday goals, assists, bonus and injuries 10

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) missed Liverpool’s meeting with Crystal Palace through illness but Jurgen Klopp confirmed that the right-back’s ailment wasn’t Covid-related, adding:

“This morning, after breakfast, Trent didn’t feel right. We actually planned to start him but Millie did an incredible job.”

Thiago Alcantara (£5.4m) also picked up a calf problem in the 3-0 victory over the Eagles that Klopp hopes isn’t serious.

Pontus Jansson (£4.6m) and Rico Henry (£4.5m) limped out of Brentford’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers but Thomas Frank confirmed the former was “fine”:

“[Pontus Jansson] is good, he’s fine, no problem. [Rico Henry] had a minor issue with his ankle plus he was also on a yellow card and he played against Traore.”

Shandon Baptiste (£5.0m), sent off for two bookable offences in the win over Wolves, will serve his one-match ban in the EFL Cup in midweek.

Mikel Arteta said that Kieran Tierney’s (£4.9m) substitution in the victory at Turf Moor was due to cramp:

“He had a problem and he was cramping. The pitch was pretty difficult today. It was long and it was pretty warm to be playing here and some players suffered in the last 10 or 15 minutes.”

Rodrigo (£5.5m) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.3m) both missed out on Manchester City’s clash with Southampton due to previously undeclared injuries, meanwhile.

We knew that Everton were set to be without the sidelined Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£8.1m) for their Gameweek 5 match but Rafael Benitez was hit by a further three injury blows in the run-up to the trip to Villa, with Jordan Pickford (£5.0m), Richarlison (£7.5m) and Seamus Coleman (£5.0m) all absent.

The Everton boss said:

“With the tackle of Tarkowski, Richarlison was complaining about his knee during the week and he couldn’t do it.

“Pickford has a problem with his shoulder, he couldn’t do it.

“Seamus Coleman. At the end of the training session, he was a little bit tight, he felt his hamstring.”

Leon Bailey (£6.4m) had an eventful 20-minute cameo: he scored and assisted before limping off late on, saying of his injury:

“I think it was from the shot, I think I hit it too hard! I started feeling a little bit stiff in my quad – I don’t think it’s anything too serious.”

Dean Smith also was forced to withdraw Cash and John McGinn (£5.9m), who had a concussion.

FPL TAKEAWAYS

FPL Gameweek 5 round-up: Saturday goals, assists, bonus and injuries 11
  • Brentford’s defence again impressed, with a misfiring Wolves not hitting the target once and mustering only four shots from inside the opposition area. To neatly sum the two sides up: the Bees’ rate of expected goals conceded (xGC) can only be bettered by Manchester City, while Bruno Lage’s troops have the division’s worst shot-to-goal conversion rate.
  • Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola had both sounded warning noises in the run-up to Gameweek 5 about rotation and tiredness, and the pair followed those ominous comments up by making six and five changes respectively from their midweek line-ups. Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Ferran Torres (£7.2m) were among the most high-profile benchings, with Klopp pledging more of the same in 2021/22.
  • As was the case in their last top-flight stint, Norwich’s defence looks there for the taking. While the benefit of doubt could be given to the Canaries after a tough Gameweek 1-4 fixture run, they allowed a Watford side who were without a big chance in three matches six such gilt-edged opportunities on Saturday. Four of those openings fell to Sarr alone.
  • After keeping just two clean sheets in 2021 up until the beginning of September, Southampton have recorded back-to-back shut-outs. They didn’t allow Manchester City a single shot on target until the last minute at the Etihad.
  • Two £4.0m goalkeepers made the starting XIs on Saturday: Ben Foster and Asmir Begovic. Pickford’s injury accounted for the latter, while the Athletic reported that Daniel Bachmann (£4.5m) had a knee problem – although he did make the Watford bench.
  • Salah has reached 50 FPL points quicker than in any of his five previous seasons.
  • With Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) again between the posts and the back four unchanged, Arsenal recorded a second successive clean sheet – and, as they did last week, didn’t allow a single big chance en route to their shut-out.

FPL OWNERSHIP AND CAPTAINCY – TOP 10K

Salah was hugely backed with the armband among the leading top 10,000 managers this weekend, with the other four main captaincy contenders either yet to play or uninvolved on Saturday.

Just over 5% of the top 10k played their Wildcard in Gameweek 5, with Wolves pair Marcal (£4.6m) and Nelson Semedo (£4.9m) entering the ‘template’ overhauled team along with Leeds duo Patrick Bamford (£8.0m) and Raphinha (£6.5m) plus Demarai Gray (£5.7m).

      Short term C, Watford next 2 is against poor defensive teams. Double up versus Newcastle & Leeds doesn't look disastrous.

    Sarr was not even close to 100 to rise in price but guess who owns him?

      I'm now concerned that I wasn't supposed to post that, thought price rise sources like FPL statistics that I've seen posted on here a hundred times was acceptable.

        No bother. I know that carefree. Just my standard when Pundit X,Y or Z are referenced like they're FF Elvis. We can pick our teams just as well as some so called pundits. There are many ways to pick a combination of players.

      There was no way Sarr should have risen that quickly

  3. jackruet

    2 months, 14 days ago

    Team for gw6

    Sanchez
    Trent shaw christensen
    Salah sarr jota benrahma
    Ronaldo Antonio bamford

    1. Change christensen
    2. Change benrahma
    3. Save ft

    1. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      3. Save

      Benrahma has Leeds next doesn't he? Defensive issues with numerous CHs out.

      Having 2 free transfers for Chelsea fixture swing GW 7 will be popular. I've planned to save & do Shaw & Ronaldo for Lukaku & either Rudiger or James. Christensen is a rotation risk with Silva but you could have double Chelsea defence plus Lukaku for some tasty fixtures. Others will either wildcard it take a hit to triple up on Chels.

      However it makes sense to have a decent sub to cover Christensen when he doesn't play.

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Nice insight. Are you not afraid to ditch ronaldo?

    2. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yes & no. Fixture wise I'd be more concerned not owning Lukaku. Having 3 premiums & TAA is either feast or famine & little flexibility.
      Ronaldo price & a history of not scoring highly against the stronger teams makes it the percentage play for me.

      Of course Ronaldo can still score against anyone, especially if he's on pens, so could backfire & with CL Lukaku could have his minutes managed or even rested for Southampton, but that applies to Ronaldo to.

      Lesser of two evils for want of a better phrase.

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Ronaldo might score brace against city and he has massive ownership which makes me anxious. And easy fixture means rotation, dont you think? If chelsea has tough CL match ahead, Lukaku might be rested and they have werner, ziyech etc. Surely lukaku wont play every single minutes and werner rareky playing now. So tuchel might use werner against norwich, Newcastle etc

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Man U have Cavani & Greenwood to cover Ronaldo up top that score goals. Werner seems out of favour at present.

      After Man Us first CL result, managing minutes / resting in the PL before / after CL seems a higher probability to me.

      Regarding ownership, Lukaku's will increase significantly with those fixtures from GW 7 & be highly captained. Potentially people will sell Ronaldo to fund it, if thinking is the same as me on 2 premiums not 3. So that's a double swing on ownership so to speak.

      Ronaldo track record is a flat track bully. Lukaku is likely to out score him based on the fixtures.

      City defence top 2 in the league, plus Ole approach to playing the top teams suggests a lower scoring game to me, using your example.

      Leicester, Liverpool, City, Chelsea in Man Us fixture run doesn't scream Ronaldo Captain which is another reason for me to make the switch.

      Potentially you're right about weaker opposition for Lukaku gives the opportunity to manage his minutes / rest. But I feel Lukaku is so important to how we play. We struggled to break down teams that parked the bus last season. He may miss the odd game but I expect him to play the majority in the PL & he's arguably the best Captain option in that fixture run.

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Agree with ronaldo and man utd fixture. Utd's tough fixture will most likely be low scoring match, but ronaldo might score. Question is if its worth to keep 12.5 if i dont captain him Against tough opponents While lukaku would be the standout captain option. Also having city, double Chelsea defense with good subs means 3 premium is not possible due to budget. So It's better to spread the cash

  4. jia you (The No BS League -…
    • 5 Years

    Sarr covers Salah, right?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      200%

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yup

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      What do you mean when you say covers?

    4. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Expect him in the next 2.

    5. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Even just by name, he covers about half of him

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He is Salah not Sarah 😀

  5. Mr Ozil

    Morning All,

    1 FT, 0.5 itb

    Sa’
    TAA Shaw White
    Salah Traore’ Jota Raphinha
    Ronaldo Antonio Bamford

    Subs: Steer Sissoko Livramento Williams

    Better save FT for now and use 2 transfers in GW6 to get Lukaku?

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Save, the team looks fine

  6. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    No Stones or Laporte v Chelsea. Lukaku (C)??

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Of course.

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Don't have Lukaku. Not confident on Salah. So Ronaldo it is.

      Although Antonio is tempting. But that would mean losing one of Bamford/Jim

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I would like that as lukaku owner, but i wish them City lads a quick recovery, being a Liverpool fan i Will not wish our rivals the same problem like we had last year.

  7. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    61 with Ron and Reece left to play.

    Need Shaw Greenwood and Sanchez to not haul to get a good green Arrow.

    1. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Only kaku here and on 60 with One pointer from the bench so hopefully West ham shows who the boss is on London today.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not going well, but my gameweek would be transformed if in the last game my captain Lukaku popped up with another brace or a Hattie.

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I took out Cash after the third gw, that is so Fpl! Cashed out to soon, ha ha. With fixtures in mind i would still back that decision though

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      49 with cristensen, Sanchez shaw ronaldo benrahma to play.

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      51 with 5 to play.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Same as me.

        However 2 of my 5 are Veltman and Sanchez. So a brighyonnclean sheet would be dreamland

    4. Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      57 with Ronaldo, Shaw, Greenwood and Sanchez left to play, did Wilson to Jiminez for a -4 tho which didn’t work out

    5. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      60 (-4) with Ronaldo, Lukaku, Sanchez, Greenwood and Shaw to play

  8. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    So getting Jota and TAA with my two free transfers was not a great success this gw...Would you just keep Jota or change him immediately for Raphinha?

    a. Save the free transfer for next gw
    b. Kick out Jota and get Raphinha
    c. other suggestions

    Sánchez
    Shaw, Alonso, TAA
    Jota, Salah, Fernandes, Sarr
    Ings, Antonio, Toney

    Steele, Duffy, Amartey, Gilmour
    1 free transfer, 0.2 million in the bank

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

      Let's see if Raphinha is fit or not

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

        Thanks, yes will wait for news close to the deadline before I do anything.

  9. DavidBadWillie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 14 days ago

    All of my players got points apart from my captain Jota.

    Never ever will I captain again and Brentford will be his last game for me unless he gets a Hat Trick.

    Surviving without Salah is ok, but not sure how long I can hold off.

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

      Should be fine till Man City game

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      He's not going to miss a sitter every week. Still a good option whilst firmino is out IMO, but I wouldn't cap him as he generally gets subbed early

  10. HurriKane
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Anyone else considering Antonio (C) over Ronaldo (AVL) and Salah (bre) next gw?

    I mean Leeds are leaking goals for fun and has only 1 fit CB available in Cooper who is having a nightmare season so far.(even their makeshift CB Ayling is a doubt)

    Infact Leeds has conceded 35 shots on target in 5 games so far.

    Antonio in amazing form and currently leading points scorer for forwards

    All stars are alligned for a big haul. Thoughts? Im seriously tempted

    1. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Go for it. If he cost 10m you wouldn't think twice

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

      Yes, I am tempted. But my captain is Salah right now (i don¨t own Ronaldo but do own Bruno)...

      1. HurriKane
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        i wouldnt bet against salah getting a return but keep in mind brentford defence are rock solid. conceded only 2 goals in 5 games so far

        i dont think ceiling is that high compared to Antonio or Ronaldo

    3. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Thinking of Lukaku (C)

      Ake will be starting

      1. HurriKane
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Dont try to be too clever. City has faced only 5 shots on target in 5 games. Much better options available

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          ?????

          I capped Sarr this week.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 14 days ago

            I decided to cap sarr to. But thought its to early to play risky. So went safe and salah

    4. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Good pick. I just don't like away captain.

    5. Hotdogs for Tea

    6. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      I dont even own Antonio.

    7. Bubbles1985
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      He also has a decent rest this week.

      Being West Ham I'm biased but I've already made him captain for next week!

    8. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      I probably will

    0.1 short off Ings to Ronaldo, yikes!

    1. Jafooli

        Is this some kind of fraud? It still says -0.1 😉

  12. DavidBadWillie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    My plan was to get Bamford in for Ings but I should really get Lukaku (even though he’s still a big donkey) those fixtures are unreal.

        Originally in GW7 using my WC.

        It’s whether I save this week to get him next, or make a short term move for Bamf and WC Kaku in 7

  14. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Sanchez still the one long term? Think Ramsdale will have a higher ceiling when Arsenal keep clean sheets this season.

      Not nailed

      1. Heiro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        It's very odd to rotate keepers in the league isn't it?

        I expect a Cup goalie and a league goalie.

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        True, there was talk Leno could return for NLD

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Despite all the hulabaloo about sa, ramsdale etc I would still go Sanchez on wc or he’d be in my top 2, nailed in a decent defensive side and 4.5 simple as they

    3. Respect My Authoritah

      I like the Ramsdale risk. Considering Newcastle Keeler as backup/cover for tough games.

    With news about Raph, do I do Raph to Sarr? I have 1.4mil itb

    sanchez
    taa shaw ayling
    salah benrah grealish raph
    toney ronaldo ings

    subs, livra, brownhill, 4.0

    1. Heiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Hey,

      I would actually prefer Ings to Antonio and play Livramento at home to a team that can't score

    2. KING KOUNDER
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      What is the news about Raph ?

  16. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Dont understand why arsenal defs are so cheap despite conceding the 3rd fewest goals last season.

    Tierney with his attacking threat looks great value at 4.9 and ramsdale looks like the best 4.5

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Am considering the switch from Sanchez this week but had heard there was talk Leno could return for the Spurs game

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        If i switch to ramsdale it would only be after the next 2 games. Shd give an idea about rotation too

        Problem is arsenal have no europa this season so hard to keep both happy

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Yeah, but Leno hasn’t signed a contract extension so not sure why they should be giving him too many minutes

  17. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Odegaard to Sarr for free?

    1. DavidBadWillie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Why sell Odegaard? He’s just hitting form

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He is playing too deep. Got lucky with his haul yesterday but dont expect much from hin

        1. DavidBadWillie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 14 days ago

          He’s played two games, scored in 1.

          I don’t think you know much about football and just points chasing.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yes

  18. Heiro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Hi all,

    Didn't see the Wolves game.

    I have a transfer I need to burn this week and thinking Jiminez to King.

    Slowly mixing team around to get Lukaku in for GW7.

    Any better options? He seemed lively

  19. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Did I miss something? Two people in my mini leagues wildcarded this week and brought in Odegaard and VVD instead of TAA!?

    1. Heiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Prob saving funds mate. Nothing more

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        How can you get that lucky though?

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Got odegaard on my wc last week. Thought he would play much higher and he is pretty cheap

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        You brought someone in with no goals or assists instead of several other players at that price who are in good form with good fixtures?

        1. Heiro
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I put them down as casuals and expect them to slip up.

          1. Nightcrawler
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Casual is sticking with bruno when ronaldo is around

        2. Nightcrawler
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Who else was there at 5.5 or below? Wasnt going to downgrade somehwre else just to have gray over odegaard

          The 5th/4th mid spot seemed to be worth a punt and ode had good games. Have .7 itb now so will look to switch to sarr though

    3. Eat my goal!

  20. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 14 days ago

    Great interview from Ben Foster yesterday after the game. Seems a really decent chap and has his own FPL podcast that is worth a watch.

  21. kenzo.
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    After wildcarding out Antonio for Jimenez, it just makes sense to eat humble pie and hop back onto Antonio right?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yes

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yes, who are your other strikers?

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

        Ronaldo and Bamford

  22. Heiro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Hi all,

    Looking to make way for Lukaku for GW.

    Would you downgrade Jota or Greenwood? Have Salah and Bruno.

    Liverpool fixtures are better. United have a terrible run.

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Jota is in rotation risk

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Yeah after next gw

  23. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    My only transfer before current GW was Cash ---》Marcal.
    Can I have a moment of silence please.

    1. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      ...

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Damn

  24. Energetics
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    My team for next week is looking ofetty threadbare.

    Sanchez
    Taa Shaw Semedo Livramento
    Salah Jota Raphina Traore
    Cr7 Lukaku

    Steele Sissoko Williams Locadia

    Can I get away with a hold?

    Plan would be to use two FT in 7 to do Jota and Williams to Gallagher and James?

  25. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Unpopular opinion but as a Chelsea fan, I think Mo Salah is the best football player in the world right now. Right now is the keyword.
    Even if you disagree, he has to be Top3 at least.

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Seems to have evolved his game even more to another level this season, which is just insane

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Agree with top 3. Most relentless player around for sure

    3. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Agree

    4. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Top 3 for sure

    5. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Not even the best in the league. KDB >

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I mean right now. At this very moment.
        Otherwise not denying there's a case for KDB

    6. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I heard from some ffs regulars that he is regressing.

    7. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 14 days ago

      yea, i think i can agree

    8. PartyTime
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Lewandowski is the best player in the world right now. Hasn’t failed to score a goal in a single game since February

    9. afsr
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      GW6 team

      Sanchez
      TAA Shaw Tierney
      Salah Traore Jota Raphinia
      Ronaldo Antonio Bamford
      0.3 ITB

      A. Traore -> Gray/Sarr
      B. Your suggesstions
      C. Save

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        C but A is a bit tempting if you're beginning to lose faith in Traore

        1. afsr
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I certainly am, even though i would have liked to keep him for Newcastle. And Gray has Norwich next and an ok fixture schedule too

      2. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        You should probably do C given you got Traore for a reason.

        But I’d do A as I have no faith at all in Traore as as FPL asset. Wolves just won’t score many goals at all and that’s before you factor in that Traore loves to miss chances too

    10. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Southampton's performance against City yesterday should give us pause for thought about the Ronaldo to Lukaku (c) move in GW7.

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yeah. Always planned to do that move after the IB though.

      2. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        They’ve done really well Southampton fair play to them

        However, they are always a red card away from conceding 9.

    11. PB-THE-VET
      • 11 Years

      Just noticed gilmours 1 bap! Thanking you sir!

    12. RUN DCL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Did the TAA being rested news come before the deadline? I noticed some teams had Tsmikas starting. Where did it come from?

      1. Cok3y5murf
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not the TAA news, but Andy LTFPL was told Tsimikas would start

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        No and twitter.

      3. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Nope - he only got ill the morning of the game.

        There were rumours of Robertson being benched though and thus Tsimikas starting

      4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        No he got sick very late in proceedings

        It was massive jam for non owners, in his form he would have smashed again

    13. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Nice to be able to hope that Bruno goes crazy with goals today even though I haven't captained him 🙂 his effective ownership is only 28 % at my rating

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        He’s due a glut of assists

        Reckon he will set up at least 2 or 3 for big CR7
