Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 7 preview and latest team plans

Friday night finds Mark Sutherns back alongside Andy for another members-only chat to ease us into Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 7. You can find this latest video over on our YouTube channel.

The video is an exclusive for Premium Members – and there’ll be plenty more to come in 2021/22.

Mark is recording – just for subscribers – every week throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see them.

This week’s episode begins with Mark stepping aside to allow Andy to enjoy the glory of a huge green arrow from Gameweek 6, as a 69-point return put him inside the top 200k.

From then on, the pair embark on their preview of Saturday and Sunday’s fare as they discuss the recent rash of defensive injuries, the lure of the Wildcard and – once again – the appeal of the Chelsea and Manchester City rearguards.

As usual, they also review their own line-ups, with Andy enjoying a purple patch and the luxury of rolling two transfers over the break, while Mark is rather pessimistically bracing himself for another red arrow.

    Settled on this WC:

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo Rudiger Azpi
    Salah Raph Saka Gallagher
    Lukaku Antonio Jimi

    Foster Dias D.Louiz Liv

    1.7itb for Trent

    Thoughts?

      Perfect

    2. Mufc202020

      Who will you replace for Trent do you think? One of the city defenders?

      1. Fly Emirates
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah, Dias if Cancelo keeps starting

        1. Mufc202020
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          If you’re benching Dias anyway is it worth just benching TAA and saving the FT? Just a thought

          1. Fly Emirates
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Have thought about that. I think with the chance he's out for multiple GWs plus a few tricky fixtures for Pool with City's fixtures being so good I am swaying towards Dias.

    3. Bobby Digital

      Got Jimi on my freebie. Good luck!

        You too!

    4. Norco
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      I like it!

      Will you be benching Gallagher each week? Is ESR worth it to save some extra coin in potential bench spot moving forward?

      1. Fly Emirates
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks, yeah other than this week. Have thought about it but don't want the Arsenal triple up. Also not sure who I'd want to bring in with the extra cash. Who'd you have in mind?

        1. Norco
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Maybe Mbeumo that way in a couple weeks they have a nice run too which you could utilise if need be.

    5. We Go Again
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 3 days ago

      If you're gonna bench Dias then you may as well keep TAA and save a FT down the line

      1. Fly Emirates
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        Have thought about that. I think with the chance he's out for multiple GWs plus a few tricky fixtures for Pool with City's fixtures being so good I am swaying towards Dias.

        Would be nice to save the FT in the future though. I am still not 100%

    Used my 2FT on Alonso & Saka, but still got problems.

    What would you do?

    Possibly-4 -8?

        According to predicted line ups gilmour dropped?

        Need security of starts so keeping Shaw rather than than Chelsea merry go round.

        Don't want Raph as too much uncertainty over next 2 GWs

        Think I will do Toney to Kaku and Bruno to saka

        It's all about nailedness!!!

        2 months, 3 days ago

        Is it better to play with 2 defenders rather than take a -4 for Liveramento in order to get 3 defenders out?

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I think so

        2. Bobby Digital
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Wouldn't take a -4 on a defender unless it's a DGW.

        3. Brehmeren
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I would take the hit

      • Dannyb

        2 months, 3 days ago

        Matip or Reguilon to Christenson? Don't wanna burn a ft.

        Hi all,

        Probs should have pulled trigger on WC this GW rather than limp through to the int. break, but now I'm sitting on this lot, what's my best one-week 'patch' for a -4?

        A: Bamford > Jimmy
        B: Bamford > Wood
        C: Coufal > Semedo
        D: Something else?

        Bachmann/Foster
        Rudiger, Coufal, Liva
        Raph, Salah, Greenwood, Sarr, Gilmour
        Antonio, Ronaldo
        (Bamford, Tsimikas, TAA)

        1. g40steve
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          C or E Trent > Cancelo

        2. _figu
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          I'd ne very tempted to WC. But understandable you want to hold. I guess Bamford to Jimmy for The upside and hope Coufal plays

          Quick vote:

          1. Ronaldo White D.Luiz(benched) locked 4-3-3
          2. Vardy Alonso Mbeumo(rotate with Cash when fixtures are good) 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 flexibility.

        11. FPL-Albion
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          TAA and Tsmikas to which 2 Chelsea defenders?
          Thinking Azi and Christensen
          Or is Rudiger or Alonso better?

          1. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            1. FPL-Albion
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Can’t afford those two. Has to be Christensen with one of the other 3

                • 4 Years

                Ah, sorry. Wouldnt get Alonso personally. SO out of those options Azpi Christensen

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Somehow I ended up having Trincao? Do we think he plays vs Newcastle r ship him for a hit?

          1. Well you know, Triffic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            Might aswell keep one last week but expect him off the bench

        13. Malinwa
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 3 days ago

          Need some advice here.

          2FT - What would you do?
          Still have WC

          A. Shaw+TAA > Rudiger+Cancelo
          B. Shaw+Greenwood > Rudiger+Jota
          C. Shaw+Ayling > Rudiger+Livramento?
          D. Other?

          Sanchez
          Semedo-shaw*-TAA*
          Salah-Raph-Greenwood-Benrahma
          Ronaldo-Toney-Antonio

          Steele-gilmour-White-ayling*

          1. EffPeeEll
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Shaw probably plays but wait until nearer deadline.

            I'd go a ballsier Alonso at the expense of TAA but with a view of getting Trent back.

          2. _figu
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Trent Ayling to Rudi & Azpi

            1. Malinwa
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Double chelsea defence?

        14. Life_Ban
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Why is everyone so polite, no one spilling beans on what Mark's team is likely to be???

            I am guessing James has been ditched

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

              Mark has jumped from the frying pan into the fire.

            2. EffPeeEll
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Has he followed the other talking heads and persuaded the great unwashed to embrace a premium quadruple consisting of 2 chelski and 2 Citeh backliners?

            3. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              He was going James to Rudiger I thought??

            4. Life_Ban
                2 months, 3 days ago

                Was slightly tempted to go Raphinha but you babe him alrrady. I'm keeping. Might start vs Watford If Mane IS coming from internationals late. 20-30mins should be good vs tired legs.

              Jimenez or ASM instead of Bamford?

              I own Alonso at 5.8, with 0.1itb.
              If he rises 0.1 tonight, and I sell tomorrow, will I have 6.0? Or do I need him to rise 0.2?

                You gain 0.1 for every time a player goes up 0.2 mate so if you got him at 5.8 and he goes up to 6.0 you can sell him for 5.9

                you get 5.9, if he rises

                Depends on what you purchased Alonso at.

              In draft League would you take out Gundo and put in Foden?

                Gundo is injured so seems a good plan.

                  Thinking more long term if losing Gundo is bad shout?

              Would you bench anyone over Jota?

                If you think Jota will start, maybe Cancelo. Otherwise, nope

                Flip of a coin really.

                Jota, Greenwood and Torres all on trial this week.

              Odd question, but is anyone avoiding captaining Ronaldo because of the early kick-off?

                Hs this new top-heavy premium defender template look about it but it could pay off obviously.

                I see Saka. grealish, raphina as potential injury prone players but who knows

                If you're WC in 8 then I wouldn't take a hit, so I prefer A

              Can't decide on whether to do Ronaldo to Lukaku to a hit. Based off the models Lukaku should outscore Ronaldo by a point on average (so 2 given you'll captain him) and it allows me to use a transfer the next week on bringing Cancelo in. Comes down to if I'm going to WC in 8 or not because if I am then the hit isn't worth it, but otherwise I think it is.
