The best budget players to enable the premium FPL triple-up: The Scout Network

Chelsea’s upcoming fixture swing has put many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers in a quandary in terms of how to budget for Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m), especially if they want to keep hold of both Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.6m).

We asked the Scout Network for their best budget enablers to allow FPL managers the funds to own more than two premium players.

The best FPL midfielders for a Gameweek 7 Wildcard 11

If I was Wildcarding right now and moving to 3-4-3, or going with all four of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m), Mohamed Salah (£12.6m), Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) and Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m), Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) would be my cheap enabler. He’s just £4.5m currently, and has bagged two assists in the last two Gameweeks. He also seems fairly nailed in the Aston Villa side, only missing out in Gameweek 1 thanks to his involvement at the Olympic Games. At his price, you’d be happy to see him pick up a return or two in his next seven fixtures, something that looks possible given his recent underlying numbers. There’s even a sneaky potential of a clean sheet point, with three in the bag already, and a Martinez full of confidence in goal.

FPL Nymfria

No-one is essential in FPL, except maybe that £4.5m midfielder spot you will probably always have to select in your squad. During Gameweek 6, Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) took left-sided corner duties at Old Trafford and was also on direct free-kicks. We also know from last year that he can score from outside of the box every now and then and the whole package makes him the best £4.5m midfield pick, in our opinion.

Brentford impress as Arsenal devoid of ideas without attacking stars 1

Arsenal have turned their fortunes around with three straight wins and look to have the momentum to carry on their form. Their next five fixtures (bha, CRY, AVL, lei, WAT) seem okay and they can possibly keep three or even four clean sheets in those games, so Ben White (£4.4m) could be a great option. White is now nailed-on in the Arsenal backline and is an absolute enabler at his price.

Three premiums is a big temptation these days and as many managers are about to activate the Wildcard, we need to look into potential cheap assets to compensate in our teams. The first budget enabler comes from the defence and surprise packages Brighton, who would have been top of the table had they beaten Crystal Palace on Monday. Shane Duffy (£4.3m) is their best FPL defender because of the opportunities he is getting in attack: so far this season he has managed 11 shots. He has adapted his game to fit his role and is the best sub-£4.5m defender you can buy.

Sarr underlines differential potential as Chelsea earn another clean sheet 3

If you are going for three premiums, you must think about your targeted preferred system. Personally, I am always betting for the big hauls so I am very reluctant to give up the 3-4-3. So, taking the assumption that you have Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.7m) and Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) in the first two spots, you need a low-price forward alongside them. The cheapest viable option is Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m). The negatives are that he is not on penalties, Watford rarely score 3-4 goals in a game and he is a possible rotation risk. However, he is a very explosive player, extremely fit, and has a potential to be a real ‘banger’. The uncertainty over his performances is what makes him exciting.

FPL Froggies
Is £4.0m FPL goalkeeper Foster the new Watford number one? 2

Trawling through the budget options this season is like rummaging through the pick ‘n’ mix aisle at Woolworths (ask your parents, kids)! There are loads of good options to be had but to try and tempt you with something a little different, then have a gander at Teemu Pukki (£5.9m). Now I know the Norfolk surroundings might put you off as, let’s face it, Norwich look like a team doomed for the drop but Pukki has already has two goals to his name in the midst of a pretty difficult set of fixtures. He has also had 11 shots in the box so far this season and is set for a lovely run of matches that the Canaries will need to do well in if they have any hope of survival. Prepare yourself for the Pukki Power gif!

Greyhead
Armstrong a differential for Gameweek 6 and beyond as Saints’ fixtures improve

If you are looking for bargain strikers, you could do a lot worse than Adam Armstrong (£6.0m) at Southampton. The striker scored 28 goals in 40 appearances for Blackburn in the Championship last season and even if the step up to the big stage should dampen his output considerably, his 28 penalty area touches and 19 shots so far indicate he is at the very least a threat. With fixtures looking considerably rosier starting in Gameweek 8 and stretching all the way up to Christmas, Armstrong could be a great enabler as long as expectations are managed. 

Meltens

Admittedly, Southampton don’t exactly look like a creative powerhouse
but Adam Armstrong (£6.0m) has had 19 shots in the first six games, with 12 of those inside the box. After Chelsea, they also have a field of green for the former Blackburn man to plunder with home games against Leeds, Burnley and also nice fixtures against Watford and Norwich, who have hardly look secure at the back. A is for Armstrong, B is for Budget enabler and C is my Confidence he will do well!

Greyhead

Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) from Brentford has managed 19 points so far this season and has created four big chances. He is playing out of position and his creation rate and good understanding with Toney makes him a great option at a cheap price.

Bendito Fantasy

Goal conversion rate is a tricky stat: a low number could indicate low quality chances/shots, or it could indicate a player being a bit unlucky and about to deliver more goals going forward. Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) has a goal conversion rate of just 7.7% from his 13 goal attempts, with accuracy being the big issue so far. With an xG of 2.41 (having scored just one goal), Mbeumo’s prospects as an ‘out of position’ midfielder playing as a striker for Brentford looks great going forward.

Meltens
Wilson injury latest as Ronaldo and Lukaku score twice 4

There is a lot of hype around Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) and Chelsea defenders but Mateo Kovacic (£5.2m) could be an excellent enabler, especially with N’Golo Kante (£4.9m) out with Covid. He has also improved trememdously on his attacking stats, scoring once and providing three assists to date. That has already equalled his best attacking return in his Chelsea career. The Blues’ next five games are very winnable and Kovacic makes a great enabler if you have not already tripled up on Chelsea players.

    Why is Raphina still flagged?

    Will Shaw play?

  3. GoonerByron
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Mentions of Mbuemo, Kovacic and Dennis but nothing on Smith Rowe (5.3) or Odegaard (5.5) 😀

    1. Shah G
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Have my eye on Armstrong, possibly for Antonio next week even for a hit.. Risky but have to make some brave moves to get a rank boost.. At least at this stage when you have a lot of time to recover..

    2. Ryan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      With the way Brentford are playing there is a lot going for Mbuemo as an out of position prospect. Personally I might leave him out for now due to short term fixtures but he could be my first post WC transfer in a few GW's.

    3. MikeyMitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      No mention of Josh King either, just .2 more than Dennis, further forward and will drastically outscore Dennis imo

      1. Ryan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        The Watford fixtures are pretty bad though and aside from Norwich their attacking numbers aren't that great.

        1. MikeyMitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          I don't necessarily disagree there. But I think at 5.5 King is an easy budget enabler and someone who will net a lot over the course of the season

  4. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    What to do with Jota?

    A- Keep
    B- Sell for a hit to any midfielder up to 10.2

    1. klopptimusprime
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      do you have a decent bench?

      1. Mr Ozil
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Sissoko Williams and Livramento

        1. MikeyMitz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Would not sell for a hit but his starting days are numbered. Firmino better for the team, fit, and looking good

  5. Echoes
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Still not warmed to the idea of going both Lukaku and Ronaldo, when you consider you'll also want Salah, and you can only cap one of the three. Might rotate Lukaku/Ronaldo depending on fixtures and then bring in Son to compensate. How does it sound?

    1. Good Times
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Sounds good, vardy might be interesting as well

      1. Echoes
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, thinking of Vardy as a one week punt this week before the WC. Might just keep him in the WC if he does well.

    2. GoonerByron
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I have just WC’d and done exactly this. Salah/Lukaku/Son as my premiums.

      1. Echoes
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Thinking of exactly those three as well. GL to both of us, I guess 🙂

  6. Good Times
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Who do I prioritize in removing, no wildcard 2 ft

    Shaw
    Bamford
    Taa (keep or sell)
    Jota (question mark on game time)

  7. HollywoodXI
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    I think I’m just going to accept now that I’ll have less than 11 players playing the week.

    1. Good Times
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Sigh, it's looking that way. Liva and Duffy both have difficult fixtures for me on the bench

  8. Eleven Hag
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Help me out with this injury crisis plz.

    TAA James
    Raph
    Bamford

    - Duffy Livra Gilmour

    How would you play this with no FTs or WC left? (1.0itb)

    1. klopptimusprime
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Could realistically start all of them and if they don't play, bench will cover all as Raph should play.

      Otherwise could bring in a Chelsea defender for James (I wouldn't touch Bamford as he will most likely be back post international break)

    2. Good Times
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Raph is a hold.

      Taa might miss two games. You'll probably need a hit for Bamford if he is out for the week

    3. Riverside Red
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I've got three of them and on -4....I'm sitting tight for now

  9. klopptimusprime
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Wildcarding next week so looking to bring in Chelsea DEF for TAA

    a) Trent > Rudiger (-4) (works with WC plan)
    b) Hold (potentially have 2 playing defs including Livra)

    Sanchez
    Livramento | Shaw* | White
    Salah | Sarr | Raph | Benrahma
    Ronaldo | Toney | Antonio

    Gunn | Jota | TAA | Hoever 0FT, 0.2ITB

    1. MikeyMitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I prefer Alonso but admit he's a risk now with Chilwell. I think he'll start against Southampton and he's a much better attacking threat. That said, Rudiger seems to be our most nailed on CB, but, I think he may be rested against Southampton fwiw

      1. klopptimusprime
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Azpi a worthy shout then?

  10. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Pick one:

    A) Cancelo + Azpi
    B) TAA + Christensen

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      B

    2. Ryan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      A) Its the injury to TAA which I don't fancy. It frees up cash too doesn't it?

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        I does. B gives me that and 0.4 to spare.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Sorry, A gives me 0.4 to spare.

        1. Ryan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Well thats enough to tip the balance I feel. The fixtures for TAA aren't great either.

    3. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Cancelo + Christen

  11. Ryan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Laporte + Brownhill (5th mid with Douglas Luiz as 4th mid)
    or
    White + Mbuemo (4th mid with Douglas Luiz becoming 5th mid)

    I already have Cancelo but keen on Laporte as well.

    1. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I would go Walker over Laporte.

      1. Ryan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        More nailed do you think?

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Less competition for his spot I think. Although, Laporte more likely to score from a set piece, but Walker is always good for the occasional chance assist and whilst Zinchenko is out he’ll be more nailed

          1. Ryan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            It's the left footed aspect of Laporte that surely makes him a reasonably assured starter I would have thought. Or is there another left footed CB?

  12. GE
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    1) Saka
    2) ESR
    3) Ødegaard

  13. GoonerByron
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Just hit the WC, how does this look?

    Mendy
    Cancelo - Rudiger - Tierney
    Salah - Son - Saka - Smith-Rowe
    Lukaku (c) - Antonio - Jimenez

    Foster - Brownhill - Livra - Williams

    1. Ryan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Nice punt on Son, do you reckon Spurs can turn their form around in the short term? I'm on WC myself and put that cash into Ronaldo instead.

      The side looks solid but I don't fancy the GKer combo, I think you'd be better off in the 4.5-5 bracket.

      1. GoonerByron
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        I think Son will get goals/points even if they’re not doing well.. 3 goals in 5 games so far and fixtures look good coming up?

        Would not normally go premium on the GK but just want 2 nailed Chelsea defenders every week + Tierney is nailed and offers a lot

        1. GoonerByron
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Going forward… Preferred Mendy/Tierney to Ramsdale/Azpi or similar even though it cost a bit more?

          1. Ryan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            From a pure GKer position though, it is save points that make the difference and that can be even across all GKer price points. There is also no chance of attacking returns by investing into the GKer position.

  14. jackruet
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 17 days ago

    3 premium looks good on paper, but can they justify their price tag if not captained? Ron+ rom is 24 m in combined. To justify their price tag i would expect returns in every week, which isnt possible.

    1. GE
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      For me it’s max 2 of Salah, Ronaldo and Lukaku

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I have the 3, have had since I used the WC in gw4.

        Firmino isn't going to play with Brazil.

  19. FOO FIGHTER

    Decisions, decisions...

    With almost everyone having issues with players injured in their squads, captaincy will be key to getting right, ain't it?

    I have been switching between Salah, Lukaku and Ronaldo and still not sure who I will be going with.

    Lukaku not getting service, Salah is in sh*t hot form and Ronaldo the player you won't bet against hauling.

    This obviously will go down to the wire but I have cut down to choosing between Salah and Ronaldo.

    With assets dropping like flies, hopefully there are no other flagged surprises awaiting us for GW7.

    I have also kept my FT and will have two for GW8. I have the players in mind which I want to bring in for GW8 but I will not be doing any transfers before pressers for GW8 🙂

    I also have no doubt that after GW7 WC's, hits will be taken. IMO this was not the greatest week to activate it before the IB.

      I have the armband currently on Ronaldo, the win last night will give them a boost as well in confidence.

      1. Harry the Hack
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Confidence has never been an issue with Ronaldo.

        1. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Not Ronaldo, but the team

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Ronaldo is still a better option.

  20. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Just hope Chilwell becomes an option again. Helps me do this for -4. Even two appearances in three should be ok.

    TAA + Marcal + Gilmour to Cancelo + Chilwell + ESR.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I had Chilwell in my GW1 team. Shipped him out straight away though.

      If he is nailed down, I will be getting him in.

    2. g40steve
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      He was pants last night, made Alonso look excellent even with a poor game.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        To be fair, he needs games to get up to speed.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Wow! Didn't watch that game. First game after such a long time maybe?

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 12 Years

      Tough situation to play your first competitive minutes of the season in , but I think we’re about to see an awful lot more of Chilwell now - he’s a much better player than Alonso

      Alonso has been given his chance, but hooking him at half time Tuchel has prob had enough, he was poor vs Man City too

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Agree, Alonso off at half time not looking good for him.

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        He was really bad vs City. Did not track back. Displayed limited positional sense. I think sometimes he forgets that his primary job is defending.

    4. JammySprat
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Chilwell in high tempo games and Alonso against deep def

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        So worth getting if you have this bench:

        Livra, ESR/ Gallagher

        1. JammySprat
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Yeah I owned both last year because the upside is so high for Chelsea fullback

  21. Steevo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Which combo? (Different formations):
    A) White Antonio Jota
    B) Christensen Son Gray
    C) Alonso Rudiger Jota

  22. Gazza2000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Would you WC this lot or get Cancelo in for Webster for -4 and save the WC?
    Torres the obvious other issue but could have the amazing Sissoko off the bench for him so he can wait a week

    Sanchez
    TAA* Rudiger Ayling
    Salah Torres Raphinha Benrahma
    Antonio Ronaldo ASM

    Steele Sissoko Webster Tsimikas

  23. FCSB
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Who would you start out of:

    1. Ayling [if fit] (WAT)
    2. Veltman [have Sanchez] (ARS)

    Thanks.

    1. FOO FIGHTER

    Greenwood owners worried?

    Have a feeling Lingards starts ahead of Greenwood against Everton

    Once again Greenwood disappointed last night and his replacement Lingard came on and grabbed an assist

    In fact Lingard has been involved in 3 goals in his last 4 man utd appearances (3 apps from sub)

    Greenwood has been largely ineffective in the same period

    1. SAKA AND EMILE SMITH ROWE
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Shipped him out, don’t think he’ll start either

    2. Make United Great Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      If anything Sancho won’t start. Pogba has failed to flatter in LW. Still think Greenwood’s spot is safe.

      When Rashford returns it’s time to worry

      1. JammySprat
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah could be lingard left and greenwood right

    3. JammySprat
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Thought greenwood looked alright, better than Ronaldo and Sancho anyway

    4. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      He should be benched after his selfish performance last weekend

  25. The Train Driver

    Any reason to get Tomiyaso over White if getting an Arsenal defender?

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Watch him start assisting soon - Arsenal fan.

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Yes tomiyasu better pick

  26. Make United Great Again
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Anyone keeping TAA? With the INT break coming up, he could actually be fit for the Watford match

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Yes keeping, because if have more pressing issues- bamford, jota

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Yes I’m most likely keeping. Doubt he drops .1 and don’t want to take the chance buying him back at 7.6

    3. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Yes, I'm 50/50 on wildcarding this week but the injury of Trent makes it difficult to go without if he's back after the int break, but don't want to keep him if he is not back after the int break and don't like booking a transfer in, especially during a int break. If I'm not wildcarding this week I will probably pull the trigger next week and can decide on Ronaldo later.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Yes, should be back for GW8 so no point for me taking him out GW7 and then having to get him back for GW8.

      At least so far, I have 11 playing. Just need to decide the last spot whether it goes to Williams or Livra.

    5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I wanted to till last evening. But just realized that downgrading him to someone decently attacking like Cancelo helps me upgrade Marcal and Gilmour in my team to Chilwell/ Walker and ESR.

    6. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      No. I did an adductor once and took forever to come good. He's out for me.

    7. JammySprat
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Too much money to hold, if he's back likely skip the Watford and United games then reconsider

  27. Fpl_Ludwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 17 days ago

    This is my team, I’ve used my FT to go from Shaw to Rudiger. Should i take a hit to get out trent for alonso?

    Sanchez
    TAA / Duffy / Marcal / Rudiger
    Salah / Raph / Gray
    Ron / Rom / Antonio

    Bench: Gilmour / Ayling / Mendy / Foster

  28. FPL_Bharat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Morning all, suggestions with 2ft? Will WC gw8

    Sanchez
    Taa Semedo shaw — veltman tsimi
    Salah raphinha Gwood benny
    Ronaldo Antonio Bamford

    A: Taa + Ronaldo >> Rudi + kaku
    B: Taa + salah + Bamford >> Rudi + Son + Lukaku (-4)

    Not sure if it's worth a hit before WC but Son/Ronaldo (-4) is better then Salah/Bamford I think .

    1. The Knights Template

      Hi UN. Are you preparing a resolution to assist others?

  29. denial
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    I guess quite a few will be playing Livra this week?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Oh yeah!

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I need to decide between Livra or Williams.

  30. tim
    • 13 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Shaw to Alonso or Cancelo/Dias?

    Have Rudiger.

    Cheers!

    1. denial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Dias imo

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Cancelo, not touching Alonso after tonigh

      1. HurriKane
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        What happened to Alonso?. He has been playing well this season and Chilwell hasn't got a look in so far. What's changed?

        1. Gazza2000
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Chilwell is back in the picture, wouldn't surprise me if Tuchel starts Chilwell the weekend

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Rudiger/Dias pretty much like superannuation. Alonso/cancelo like going to the casino drunk.

    4. Londongeezaa
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Why is nobody giving Thiago Silva a look in? Very cheap and just as effective.

      1. tim
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Cheers mates! Welcome back to the team Dias.

      2. BrazilianGooner
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Thiago Silva is on the list for international matches.
