Dugout Discussion

Xhaka and Moura recalled as Ramsdale starts again

In the final Premier League match of the day, there’s a small matter of a north London derby at the Emirates as Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners, who are unbeaten in their past 10 Premier League home games against Spurs, make one change as Granit Xhaka (£4.9m) returns to the starting XI after a three-game ban, with Nicolas Pepe (£7.2m) dropping out.

That means a third consecutive start for Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) in goal.

At Tottenham, Japhet Tanganga (£4.6m) and Davinson Sanchez (£4.5m) replace Emerson Royal (£5.0m) and Cristian Romero (£4.9m) at the back, while Lucas Moura (£6.4m) comes in for Giovani Lo Celso (£5.9m) further forward.

Steven Bergwijn (£6.0m) and Ryan Sessegnon (£4.4m) both miss out through injury.

GAMEWEEK 6 LINE-UPS

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang 

Subs: Leno, Pepe, Martinelli, Lokonga, Cedric, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Tavares, Lacazette

Spurs XI: Lloris, Tanganga, Sanchez, Dier, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Alli, Moura, Son, Kane

Subs: Gollini, Rodon, Gil, Lo Celso, Skipp, Romero, Royal, Scarlett, Davies

        My team has been a mess for 2 weeks now. Think it's defo time for me

      50:50

      I have an ok team for next week but several bad fixtures. But I do think it’s an advantage having wildcard for international break and any injuries

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...

      Think it's time to bite the bullet and WC this week. Too many under performing players in the last two weeks combined with injuries to Shaw and Bamford, my lack of Chelsea players, United poor fixture swing. Lots of things point me in the direction of a big change up!

    Tony Adams is really looking forward to seeing Tommy Yasu today 😆

    1. No Need
      • 8 Years

      Probably thinks its a spirit

  3. Ógie

    Me and my fellow Arsenal triple uppers are going to be unbearable on here today.

    Maybe give us our own room?

    1. No Need
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Thats what the United treblers were saying

    2. Khark
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Which triple are you riding with? Tierney, ESR and Auba?

      1. Ógie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Tierney/Ødegaard/Aubameyang

  4. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    Best FPL option out of these 3 this season?

    A: Traore
    B: Barnes
    C: Thierry Henry

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      C.

      At least you'll get an auto sub who'll get points.

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Plus you get Henry for free

  5. 272MK

    Oh wow Brighton can actually go top of the table after a win

    1. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      That’s pretty cool

      1. Crunchie

        I hope not lol

    Ronaldo or Lukaku?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Lukaku

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Lukaku

  7. Alexis Nonsense
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    I only need Brighton to concede and I'm happy with this shambles of a gameweek

    59 points enough this week?

    1. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      I'm on 60 (-4) and GW rank is around 200k, i.e great!

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        A lot of Sanchez and Veltman owners...so if Brighton get a CS I think we are heading down tomorrow

        1. Harry the Hack
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 7 hours ago

          Duffy too

        2. Von Lipwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 7 hours ago

          I'm more optimistic than you (although I do have Duffy)

  8. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    Luk now

  9. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    Is Ronaldo (C) > Lukaku (C) -4 madness this week?

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Yeah I think it's stupid.

    2. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      its not worth it imo, Ronaldo is a fine cap choice. I dont want it for free, Lukaku is porobably the better captain, but not enough to warrant -4.

    3. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      For -4 yeah. I'm probably going to do it for free depending on events during the week.

    4. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Cheers guys. You’re right. United haven’t been filling me with confidence recently that’s all 🙁

    5. ZeBestee
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Not madness at all if you captaining. With the way Utd are playing, and without a good deputy at the left back (Telles back?), then Everton will be another game they will struggle to break down as I can't separate Villa/Eve much. (Forget about their result). In Doucoure/Alan, Everton have 2 of the best winners of the balls in the league.

    6. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Yup … free following week instead

  10. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    Palace v Brighton usually spicy
    Yep need a CP goal as a non BHA owner
    Sanchez hugely owned

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Palace goal needed tomorrow?

    2. OLEgend
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Need palace to score atleast 4 lol

  11. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 5 Years

    Here we go boys 😉

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Admire your hope at this stage 😀

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Scored midweek lol

  12. Isca Extremadura
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    & Velt / Duffy

  13. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    So Torres & James need to go which mid & defender combo?

    12.7, 2FT

    1. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Sarr and Alonso? Something like that, Raph if you dont have him

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Don’t have either of those three, Raphinha injured?

  14. Moyesinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    Someone just offered me an Alonso>Van Dijk transfer in draft. Normally I would not look at this, but I already have another Liverpool defender but no coverage for the upcoming chelsea schedule so I am tempted. The major worry obviously being Chilwell coming into the team and taking Alonsos spot. What do you guys think?

  15. tangtastic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    If you had to drop one against Man City, at home, who would it be:

    A) TAA
    B) Salah

    1. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      A

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Could be 0-0 or 2-2 that.

    3. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Probably Trent

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      A

  16. The Mighty Hippo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 7 hours ago

    I pressed my wildcard button last night, this is how it's currently looking, any obvious issues? Tomiyasu is getting his audition today and Douglas Luiz has been looking great for Villa, so they're taking my bench spots for now.
    0.2M left.

    Ramsdale
    TAA | Dias | Cancelo | Alonso
    Salah | Grealish | Raphinha | Sarr
    Lukaku | Antonio
    ---------------------------
    Guaita | Tomiyasu | Douglas Luiz | Scarlett

    1. sirmorbach
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Not sure about Grealish, but it's a great team surely

      1. Make United Great Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Worth a punt with their fixtures imo.

    2. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Lovely side

    3. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      looks good, but may as well get Foster over Guaita no?

      Not convinvced about Grealish personally, is there a forward thats a better option around the same price? Maybe you could stretch to Vardy if you dump Guaita, or Ings fixtures get good soon, Jimi also scored today

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Perfection

    5. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Decent team. Have an alternative to Raphinha in mind, due to injury and also due to being picked for Brazil for international break after next week - have to hope the powers that be have the post travel isolation issues sorted out.

    6. Pascal
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Would prefer double Chelsea defence instead of double City

    7. sirmorbach
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Friends, sorry to bother again, but I really need your help to see whether this team is WC material

      Meslier / 4.0
      TAA / Shaw / Livramento / Marçal / Omobamidele
      Salah / Jota / Torres / Raphinha / Benrahma
      Antonio / Ronaldo / Obafemi,

      and if it's worth changing for the following:

      Ramsdale (Foster)
      TAA, Dias, Rüdiger (Duffy, Livramento)
      Salah, Raphinha, Benrahma, Sarr (Luiz)
      Lukaku, Antonio, Bamford

      I could hold and sell Shaw/Torres for a hit, but there are other headaches as well e.g. Meslier. What do you reckon?

      1. 1314
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 6 hours ago

        before this I had got no City player, and only Rudiger as Chelsea cover..wanted to get rid of Shaw & Greenwood (and Ronaldo eventually when the fixture turns)..so I activated my WC..

    8. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      2 free transfers and .3 in bank

      A Play WC
      B Greenwood Ayling Shaw to Sarr Alonso Rudiger-4
      C Just Shaw to Alonso/Rudiger and carry
      D Ronaldo to Lukaku and Ayling to Alonso/Rudiger (if Shaw OK) using 2 frees

      * are injury concerns

      Sanchez
      TAA Shaw* Semedo*
      Salah Greenwood Jota Raphinha* Benrahma
      Ronaldo Antonio

      Foster Livramento Ayling* Scarlett

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        D

    9. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      If you could start only TAA or Cancelo in Liv vs City … who you start?

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        TAA @ home, much higher ownership

    10. Isca Extremadura
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Duffy, Veltman, Dunk & Sanchez OG’s lol

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        So long as Sanchez gets a Hattie too I don't mind

    11. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Arsenal def prices make little sense. 3rd fewest goals conceded last season and better defence on paper than last season

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Arsenal got some good fixtures coming up likes of white great value

        1. Nightcrawler
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 hours ago

          I prefer tierney for the attacking threat

          1. Finding Timo
            • 1 Year
            4 months, 6 hours ago

            Yeh guess tierney better for assists

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Yet, probably fairly priced

    12. Heiro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      Hi all,

      Was all set on Jiminez/Greenwood to Lukaku/DLouis

      Jiminez scored but don't think he was particularly great.

      Still do the moves?

      Or take Bruno out (no Ronaldo) and upgrade Obefemi?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Do the moves

        1. Heiro
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          4 months, 7 hours ago

          His fixtures look incredible though haha.

    13. Jullepuu
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 7 hours ago

      I was planning on playing the wildcard gw8 but if I played it now I could play Christensen and Jose Sa insted of Veltman (or Ayling) and Sanchez. Worth it or not?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        I reckon

        1. Jullepuu
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 7 hours ago

          Thanks

      2. Camzy
        • 11 Years

        Play it next week. IB will for sure throw up some weird stuff.

        1. Jullepuu
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 6 hours ago

          True but it's hard to resist

      • Richarlidad
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 7 hours ago

        Van Dijk & Matip > Alonso & Rudiger (-4) ?

        Not a kneejerk btw, I was planning these moves last week. Although I wasn't anticipating a hit... so now I'm not so sure both are worth it. Just one Chelsea defender in?

      • Ginkapo FPL
