Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 5 round-up: Sunday’s goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) scored again for Manchester United as Said Benrahma (£6.4m) rewarded his owners with his first goal since Gameweek 2.

Neal Maupay (£6.5m) and Danny Welbeck (£6.0m) inspired Brighton and Hove Albion moved up to fourth after a 2-1 win over Leicester City, while Chelsea kept another clean sheet at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of today’s games but in the meantime, our long-dormant Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-expanding website, and our own Premium Members Area.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

FPL TAKEAWAYS

  • Since making his second Manchester United debut in Gameweek 4, Cristiano Ronaldo has registered three goals, 13 goal attempts, 12 shots in the box, five big chances and 3.24 expected goals (xG), all league-leading totals. During that time, team-mate Bruno Fernandes (£12.0m) has managed just one attempt in the box, though it did hit the post.
  • Following today’s game, Luke Shaw (£5.5m) ranks 30th amongst all defenders for FPL points with 18. Despite that, his 14 chances created is only bettered by Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), Jack Grealish (£8.0m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.5m), while his average position (no 23) v West Ham United was as advanced as Mason Greenwood (£7.7m) on the opposite flank.

Manchester United’s average position map v West Ham United in Gameweek 5

  • Man Utd delivered 33 crosses into the box against West Ham, their highest total in a single league game so far this season, with Shaw responsible for 16 of them.
  • Benrahma’s deflected effort for West Ham opened the scoring at the London Stadium, his first goal since Gameweek 2. The Algerian now ranks second amongst all midfielders for FPL points, only behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.5m). Next up for the Hammers is a trip to Leeds United.
  • Brighton moved up to fourth in the Premier League table after a 2-1 victory over Leicester City, their fourth win of the season. Budget enabler Shane Duffy (£4.2m) supplied the assist for Maupay’s penalty, and has now provided 27 FPL points across his five starts.
  • It’s now three defeats in five matches for Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes in 2021/22. However, Jamie Vardy (10.4m) continues to produce, with three goals, one assist and five bonus points during that time.
  • It was a quiet afternoon for Spurs duo Harry Kane (£12.2m) and Son Heung-min (£10.0m), as Chelsea restricted them to a combined four shots, with just one arriving in the box.
  • Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) made his fifth consecutive start today, as Ben Chilwell (£5.7m) still waits to play his first minute of Premier League football this season. Today’s assist for the Spaniard – his second attacking return of the campaign – means that he is now the top scoring defender in the game.

INJURIES AND BANS

The best goalkeepers for UEFA Champions League Fantasy

Edouard Mendy (£6.0m) missed out for Chelsea today, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.9m) replacing him in goal.

The Senegalese stopper was involved in a collision towards the end of Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Zenit on Tuesday, which meant he had trouble diving.

“Edou got a huge hit, we tried everything in the last days but he never felt fully comfortable in diving.” – Thomas Tuchel

Yves Bissouma (£4.6m) appeared to pick up a knock at the Amex Stadium. Despite not being taken off initially, he was finally withdrawn after 79 minutes, with Graham Potter providing an update after the match:

“He was desperate to play, the medical department were ok with it. He extended his knee a little bit. As the game starts to go on, the fatigue might be a problem, but he was desperate to go out. It was a decision for the medical department.”

Elsewhere, Son made a surprise return from injury and played the full 90 minutes for Spurs, as did team-mate Eric Dier (£4.6m). 

However, the injuries sustained by Lucas Moura (£6.5m) and Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) in the Europa Conference League kept them out.

After serving one-match bans in Gameweek 5, Japhet Tanganga (£4.6m) and Michail Antonio (£7.9m) will both now be available for their respective teams next weekend.

    Duffy n Livra have saved me n many others during last 2-3 GWs. Feel like owning 5 first teamers in defense and gives us genuine rotation options.

    Thoughts on how long they could feature and would you you ever sell for something like 442, even if they continue to feature ?

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Have my eyes on Livra on my GW8 WC. Could easily end up playing 25+ games this season.

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Yes easily

    2. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years

      Selling Duffy this week now that I have got my rise out of him

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Who are you getting?

        1. George Agdgdgwngo
          • 12 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Rudi and cancelk

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I'm benefitting from both too. Livramento is nailed in a Saints side that is becoming stronger defensively. I'd be happy to start him against most non-elite opponents.
      Duffy is kind of living on borrowed time. He'll fade and be replaced at some point. For me, thanks to Liv, I can park him on my bench forever. If you want to ensure all your defenders start, he'll need to go at some point.

      1. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Cheers mate, heard from someone here that Duffy could be nailed for one of the 3 CB spots?

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          No one here knows for sure. My guess is so long as he keeps playing so well, he stays. But the first choice CBs once Lamptey is back should be Dunk, Webster and Veltman, imo.

    4. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      this seasons AWB, Lundy

  2. Pukki Blinders
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    2 FTs (0.1 itb) and got no clue what to do. Thinking of using 1 FT this week, and go into GW7 with 2 FTs again...

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Livramento
    Salah Greenwood Jota Benrahma
    Ronaldo Jimenez Antonio

    4.0, Ayling, White, Gilmour

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Greenwood to Sarr maybe? Although Villas left flank is weak.

    2. Pops15
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Almost too good of a position to be in. I dont see any immediate transfers that are needed. Hold out for any injury news and maybe move Ayling to a Coady/Marcel for their kind fixtures. Not really sure what else needs to be done.

  3. tbos83
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    What to do? 2ft, 0 itb

    Sanchez
    Shaw Digne TAA
    Gray Salah Jota Benny
    Dennis Ronaldo Antonio

    Steele Torres White Livra

    1. Boz
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Shaw to Rudiger, play Livra this week and roll the other FT

      1. tbos83
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        I def want to do this but prob not until gw7

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Get rid if digne

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 3 days ago

        And torres

        1. tbos83
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Yeah I think subbing out Torres will be the move, but to who?

          1. jackruet
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 months, 3 days ago

            Raph

    3. jimmyharte
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Wildcard.

  4. Boz
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Semedo Ayling Tsimi
    Salah Torres Greenwood Benr Brownhill
    CR7 Antonio Toney

    Toney and Torres to Gray and Bamford (-4)?

    Or hold Toney and just Torres out?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Hold Toney. West Ham won't be easy for Leeds

      1. I'M VARANE GRATEFUL
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        But will Leeds be easy for Westham?

        I'm doing Toney to Antonio.

  5. Jafalad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone see the penalty claims in the WHM/UTD game yesterday? What were your thoughts on them?

    1. WHM penalty claim in second half. Thought they should have had a penalty.

    2. Ronaldo first pen claim. Not for me. Ron was looking for it and was already falling before Coufal made contact.

    3. Ronaldo second pen claim. I thought this was a clear penalty although he had no chance of getting to the ball.

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Thought 3rd one was a pen, don't remember the first one

    2. CapK
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Think exactly the same

      The soucek incident was totally mental - honestly had no idea what happened - was rumours of offside, but the flag stayed down and ref had no right to call it there if he thought so. That aside, the challenge on Soucek in the box was mad and had no idea how it went against him.

      Agreed with the second - ronaldo ran into his leg and was looking for it.

      3rd was a pen 100%

    3. Pasqualinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I would have given Ronaldo’s 2nd one as a pen, but not the first. But upon looking at the evidence for the second one in slo-mo it’s a more obvious dive than the first one. He goes in to the challenge dragging his right foot on the ground to enhance the fall and is virtually horizontal before the contact is made.

  6. Bavarian
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    who to bring for Sa?
    Sanchez-Guaita-Ramsdale-McCarthy?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      don’t waste a transfer on that

      If in wc, guita

      1. Bavarian
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Have 2FT's and need to find a way to fund Rudiger

        1. Bavarian
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          and have Semedo by the way

  7. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Benrahma. Look beyond the deflected goal. He didn’t actually play that well IMO. He got hooked early. I was a grateful owner yesterday BTW.

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I thought he was very lively. Started most of the counterattacks. With Antonio, West Ham probably would've won this

      1. CapK
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        This

  8. Tripleh123
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Which one of these mids for the long term?

    A) Gray
    B) Benhrama
    C) Sarr
    D) Raphinha

    1. marcos11
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      D

      1. Tripleh123
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Sanchez
        Alonso, TAA, Dias
        Benhrama Jota, Salah, Greenwood, Gray
        Bamford, Lukaku

        Steele, Duffy, Williams, Scarlett

        1 ft.

        A) Greenwood to Sarr this week, Williams to Rudiger GW7
        B) Save the trf and do 2 FT in GW7

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

      All good options but
      D > B > C > A

  9. marcos11
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    What to do here? 1ft 0.4itb
    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Digne
    Salah Jota Benrahma Gray
    Ronaldo Jimenez Antonio
    Stele Omoba White Brownhill

    1. tbos83
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Roll ft

  10. Pompel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Who to bring in to partner Christensen for a defensive double-up, basically down to nailedness vs attacking threat it seems :

    A) Alonso
    B) Rüdiger

    cheers

    1. George Agdgdgwngo
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Rudi

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Rudiger. One of christensen and rudiger will play for sure and Have a decent bench

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        txs, that's what I'm thinking as well but maybe the same could be saif for the Christensen+Alonso combo? I think Rüdi has used his season goal quota, but surely more nailed than Alonso. And there is still baps

        1. jackruet
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Chillwell will play at some point for sure

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Rudiger - as suggested above unlikely both would ever miss out at the same time

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      If he plays,James. Not sure why he didn't start yesterday.

      Out of those two, B. Although I thought Alonso played well yesterday.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Was initially thinking of him, but yesterdays benching turned me off

  11. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Any thoughts on Zaha? Last season I bought him in and was rubbish

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Gallagher a better option for cheaper now

  12. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Team from GW7 onwards hopefully, will need to use a mid for Livra away at Chelsea but his fixtures are great afterwards

    Sanchez
    TAA James Rudiger Livramento
    Salah Benrahma Sarr
    Ronaldo Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Sissoko Brownhill Tsimikas

    1. jimmyharte
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Get rid of Tmiskas he will lock up a 3rd liverpool spot just for the off chance he plays

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

      Very nice!

    3. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      James is rotation risk and Benarahma was on the verge of benching I hear before yesterday's goal?

      3 premiums don't look good tbh, too many sacrifices to be made for one extra premium that we may never captain

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        But apart from that it’s good right?

        1. CR7 is Home
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          The choice of players is perfectly fine, but even without the rotation risk, I feel 3 premiums would restrict flexibility in making transfers

          One advantage is you could easily hop on to another premium like Kane when they hit form

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 3 days ago

            I was being a bit insincere… I know its limitations and it is very dependent on 6m mids holding some form. Least there is Gallagher who is emerging as another option but there is a plethora of 7.5 mids it’s locked out from getting.

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

        Agree with the above - nice when everyone starts but rotation risk too high

        1. Zim0
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          That doesn't make sense because people without the 3 premiums have those 2 in abundance as well.

    4. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Well that's basically my first 11. Cancelo and Gallagher over Rudiger and Benrahma the only difference. Got Duffy Sissoko McArthur Begovic as subs tho.

  13. jimmyharte
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    I got 67 points and went down 27k places, solid.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Must be fairly high up the ranks

      1. jimmyharte
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Well 24k places was 40,000 now im 63,490 . Pretty annoying lol

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Great rank at this stage and gets very bunched up and template the higher up you get

    2. Lord Flashheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      why dont you tell us about th eminus points you got from the subs?

      1. Lord Flashheart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        from the transfers that is

        1. jimmyharte
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          I brought in bamford and raph when i was gonna go sarr. And got livramento from bench so nothing spectacular.

  14. Tripleh123
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 3 days ago

    1 free trf.Have Sanchez+ Duffy. Advisable to trf Sanchez to

    a) Guaita
    b) Ramsdale
    c) Stick

    1. Original Sin
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Ramsdale but don't think it's very urgent. Maybe stick for this week and see again later?

  15. germanyozil10
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Next 4 GW, Who is better?
    A) Gray (NOR, mu, WHA, WAT)
    B) Gallagher (BRA, LEI, ars NEW)

    1. marcos11
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      A

      1. Original Sin
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        B

    2. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      A

  16. CroatianHammer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Bus team has been set:

    Sanchez
    Duffy, Livramento, James
    Benny, Jota, Salah, Bissouma
    Antonio, Lukaku, (C)R7

    Guaita, Tsimi, Williams, Rapha

    Might swap out Biss for Rapha if the latter is fit to play, in anticipation of a 10 goal masterpiece.

  17. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Got 74 this week, not gonna sell ronaldo for lukaku at gw7. Will wait few more weeks.
    At gw7,
    Bamford to lukaku
    Or
    Antonio to lukaku

    1. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      looked at this in depth last night. essentially I ended up comparing something like

      A) Ronaldo + Livramento + (Sissoko + williams)
      B) Bamford + Grealish + (Tierney + livramento)

      Without the captaincy A doesnt outscore B imo, and the quality of the bench just leaves you massively exposed.

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Agree with this logic.

      2. CR7 is Home
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Summarised nicely here, would go with B every day of the week

      3. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 3 days ago

        True. But grealish may benched and bamford may blank easily. While christiano can score hattrick against city any day with this huge ownership, thats scary.

        1. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          "May" refers to variance. Outcomes happen, but they are different to expectation.
          We must make decision without the benefit of hindsight which are coloured by Outcomes.

      4. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Was fully convinced initially I'll rotate between Ronaldo and Lukaku depending on fixtures as both are flat track bullies, but having a little doubt lately if I should pick both. Though still leaning towards the former idea. Gonna be my most pressing issue in GW8 WC.

        1. jackruet

          Not to mention their price rises. Casuals gonna keep buying ronaldo. Once you sell him. You will lose money if you want to buy him back

        Ronaldo and rotating Duffy/Livramento scores more though imo.

          thats assuming the rest of your team doesnt have a surprise benching or injury or positive covid test or whatever. in reality you probably end up playing Duffy and Livra every week (Duffy isnt exactly secure either) and probably also Sissoko type player as well.

            Bud that can happen to any team. It won't be happening every week. It just seems like you're justifying not doing this strategy because u don't have it or can't afford it.

    Thoughts on the below?

    For GW6: Keep Bruno, keep FT, (c) Salah
    For GW7: Scarlet Bruno Shaw to Kaku (c) 4.5 Rudi -4
    For GW8: Greenwood to Grealish

    1. Weak Become Heros

      Nice

  19. Hiiler

    8 months, 3 days ago

    Not the best GW, got only 56 points( my worst so far this season) and my first red arrow. Over all is good still, but still dropped quite a lot places in overall and my mini leagues as well.

    1. Original Sin
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      58 here, forgot to change captaincy from Kaku ( from previous week), 10 points down the drain.

      1. Hiiler
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 months, 3 days ago

        I didn't trust my initially thoughts, went with more template solution. Good have gotten 9 points more had I not done that.

  20. C_G

    8 months, 3 days ago

    what to do here?

    Sanchez Steele

    TAA White Shaw Williams Marcal

    Raph Allan Salah Jota Benny

    Bamf Antonio Ron

    1 FT, 0.4 ITB

    1. Original Sin
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Nothing to do here, roll.

    So very annoyed I opted for Traore over Sarr. Admit my mistake and transfer Sarr in this week with my FT?

    Plan is to WC in GW8 so fixtures give me:

    Sarr: NEW, lee
    Traore: sou, NEW

    Ideally wanted to roll transfer this week so I had 2 for GW7 to have some punts before the WC but NEW, lee look there for the taking right now.

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Traore hit the woodwork and should of had one assist. Fine margins. Also factor in that Norwich are really bad.

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Newcastle and Leeds both bottom of xGC which is leaning me that way. Southampton just stopped City scoring at the Etihad.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          And Wolves near the top of xG 😉

          Saints will play different against Wolves imo. Your call and could pay off well.

          1. Weak Become Heros
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 3 days ago

            This is true, lets hope he gets something then. Southampton dont seem to play that highline anymore which is a shame..

            Good mate, thanks

    2. Salarrivederci

      I've made wrong calls every week so far, but I would not do that.
      Had Sarr for the first 4 GW's, then I got rid on WC, and look what he did to me 😀
      He is a potent player and should return against NEW and/or leeds on paper, but Watford has not look that great offensively in my opinion.
      It was more the fact, that Sarr played Norwich, than Watford being good offensively. I think he will outscore Traoré by 4 points over the next 2 though, but I would rather own and play Rüdiger/James/Azpi/AC/Alonso/Silva from GW 7 week in and week out than relying on Sarr and Watford.

      1. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah I agree, however if you look at who Sarr has next its another pair of very poor defensive teams. Watford might not be playing great football but when the oppo allows it Sarr looks the man.

        Traore up against Livramento will be a tough battle. But I fancy him to do the business against Newcastle.

    3. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Been between them and finally picked Sarr so pretty happy. Either way, next two looking great also for Sarr, he should get something.

    4. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Keep traore. He is due and sarr scored his goals for next 5-6 week. Nothing but chasing points

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Impossible to know how that will pan out over two gameweeks - it's way too small a sample size with too much variance

      But over the longer term Sarr is the real deal - he is an actual footballer who has almost as much pace & strength as Traore, but has a serious football brain to utilise them & finishing skills that are light years better (he is an incredibly good finisher overall - you can see this on the eye test from the way he times his runs & poaches goals, but also check out his career goals scored vs XG - waaaay above the average).

      Crucially - when Watford eventually get a penalty he should also be stepping up to take it - which will be when the penny really drops with him for a lot of folks from an FPL perspective

      Watch his second half here against Liverpool again here ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwSe1x3uVk0 ) - the signs were there in the first half the way he was shrugging off Fabinho, but the two finishes when they came were just sheer class, and he could have had four

      Lockdown kicked in straight after this & destroyed Watford, but he kept doing this in the championship last year - and probably won’t be at Watford much longer, so enjoy him while he's there

      He's only 5% owned now, but if he stays injury free you can bet he'll be 20/25% + owned by end of the season

      But again, over two gameweeks, Traore has the raw physical attributes to smash, but he'll need good luck to override his poor decision making and lack of composure... whereas Sarr can blank, but will need bad luck to override his incredible timing & finishing ability along with his physical power

      Longer term it isn't even a question between them, Sarr is so much better

        8 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks for such a detailed response mate, very much appreciated.

        I am slightly leaning towards bringing Sarr in for the next two, simply because of the above and the opponents poor defensive quality.

        Frustrating as it goes against my initial plan but I guess we need to stay agile in this game.

    A) Greenwood to Sarr ( really like the look of Sarr and frees up a ton of money to beef up the rest of the team
