Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 7 round-up: Sunday’s goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Kelechi Iheanacho (£7.0m) scored on his return to Leicester City’s starting XI, as Son Heung-min (£10.0m) registered his third double-digit haul of the season in a much-needed victory for Tottenham Hotspur.

Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) inspired Brentford continued their impressive start, while Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) strengthened his perma-captain status with a goal, assist and maximum bonus.

However, it was a day to forget for those who handed Michail Antonio (£8.0m) the armband, as the Jamaican forward returned just two Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Points.

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

  • On his first Premier League start of the season, 2020/21 Fantasy favourite Kelechi Iheanacho bagged a goal, maximum bonus and nine FPL points. The Nigerian international registered 12 Premier League goals and two assists in just 1452 minutes last term. As a result, he ranked top amongst all forwards per 90 minutes for goals and joint-fourth for expected goal involvement (xGI). Should he now nail down a spot in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI, he would instantly become an excellent option for our frontlines, ahead of games against Manchester United (h), Brentford (a) and Arsenal (h) after the international break.
  • As for Jamie Vardy (£10.4m), the veteran forward now tops the Premier League scoring charts having netted his sixth goal of the campaign at Selhurst Park. He has blanked in just two of his seven appearances in 2021/22, but despite that, has suffered a £0.1m price drop since the start of the season. Interestingly, Vardy touched the ball just 10 times against Crystal Palace this afternoon, compared to the more involved Iheanacho (32), who regularly dropped deeper to link play in Brendan Rodgers’ 4-2-3-1 formation.
  • Following today’s 2-2 draw, Patrick Vieira’s Eagles remain unbeaten at home, despite a testing run which has included games against Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton and Hove Albion, and of course, Leicester City. The 8.3% owned Conor Gallagher (£5.7m) failed to return but attempted four shots, while Michail Olise (£5.4m) arrived off the bench and scored his first Premier League goal within nine minutes of coming on. He also took on a share of set-pieces. 
  • Son Heung-min’s third double-digit haul of the season – via two assists and two bonus points – ensured a big win for Nuno Espirito Santo and Tottenham Hotspur against Aston Villa. The South Korean international was the most advanced Spurs’ player on the day, and was a little unfortunate not to score, as he racked up five goal attempts, three shots in the box and 10 penalty box touches.
  • As for their opponents, Aston Villa, Dean Smith lined his troops up in a 3-5-2 / 5-3-2 formation for the fourth-successive Premier League match. Despite a disappointing loss, there were positives, as differential Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) opened his 2021/22 account. The dynamic between the England international and Danny Ings (£7.9m) is one to keep an eye on ahead of Gameweek 11, when Villa take on Southampton (a), Brighton (h) and Crystal Palace (a). Today, Watkins was the more advanced, and led his team-mate for goal attempts and shots in the box.
  • A dramatic late winner by Yoane Wissa (£5.9m) – his second goal in just 20 minutes of pitch time during the last two Gameweeks – at the London Stadium means that Brentford are now up to 7th in the Premier League table. Bryan Mbeumo was also on the scoresheet, but could have had more, having missed a couple of good early chances for the Bees’. Given that he has hit the woodwork a massive four times already this season, owners may still feel a little short-changed. Next up for Brentford is a testing encounter with Chelsea (h), before an appealing run of fixtures between Gameweeks 9 and 16, when their assets will surely be subject to huge interest.
  • Michail Antonio served up just his second blank of the season on Sunday, as Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) scored West Ham’s only goal of the game against Brentford. For Bowen, it was his third attacking return since Gameweek 5, and as a result, he has now outscored his more popular team-mate – Said Benrahma (£6.6m) – by 17 FPL points to 15 during that time.
  • An entertaining clash between Liverpool and Man City at Anfield ended in a 2-2 draw, with Mohamed Salah delivering yet another double-digit haul via a goal,  assist and maximum bonus. The Egyptian is the top-scoring player in FPL with a whopping 70 points, at least 21 more than any other player. Team-mate Sadio Mane (£11.9m) was also on the scoresheet, with his fourth goal in his last six Premier League appearances.
  • For Pep Guardiola’s side, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) both scored and are intriguing differentials ahead of Burnley (h), Brighton (a) and Crystal Palace (h). The Belgian attempted four shots in the box in Gameweek 7, with Foden registering two, while they both shared corner-taking duties with Jack Grealish (£8.0m).

Manchester City’s average position map v Liverpool in Gameweek 7

INJURY WATCH

Despite receiving lengthy treatment during the second-half at Selhurst Park, Jamie Vardy recovered and saw out the game.

However, Brentford weren’t quite so fortunate. 

The Bees’ lost Kristoffer Ajer (£4.5m) to a hamstring injury during the week, while Vitaly Janelt (£5.0m) took a knock (thigh) during the warm up and missed out despite being named in the starting XI.

Things then got worse as Shandon Baptiste (£5.0m) was forced off with a suspected dislocated shoulder in the first-half.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 7

The 5.1% owned Harry Kane (£12.1m) ended Gameweek 7 with six shots, a total no other player could improve upon. Despite that, the England captain blanked again, those his performance was more encouraging ahead of his team’s trip to Newcastle United after the international break.

Kevin De Bruyne also features highly, as does Said Benrahma, though only one of the latter’s five attempts arrived inside the penalty box.

Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) was this week’s biggest non-pen xG underachiever, with a -0.77 total

Son Heung-min also appears on the list, along with team-mates Kane and Giovani Lo Celso (£5.9m).

    What happened with Spurs today? Has Nuno got bored of playing defensive football? Son's numbers were v impressive, and I imagine most were only put off getting him in because of Spurs' defensive playstyle.

      It was very very obvious that Dele Alli was failing to connect defence with attack. Without him the team was far more coherent.

        Mourinho was right again shocker

  2. Salah’s Sonnet
    • 10 Years
    16 days, 21 hours ago

    Ohhh wasn’t gonna do this so soon but I may as well, good time as any.

    Started off all guns blazing like many, but I’m noticing sooner now rather than later when my team is looking to start being in trouble.
    Not averse to hits as I took a -8 for this latest GW

    Sanchez
    Alonso - Tierney - Rudiger
    Benrahma - Sarr - Salah - Raphinha - Allan
    Ronaldo - Lukaku
    _____________________________________
    Foster: Livramento: Williams: Scarlett

    Already spurned my WC after 1st IB, but do have 1FT and 3 mill in the bank.

    Sarr maybe looking like an issue.
    Ronaldo MAY have to go soon’ish as will Alonso
    Also TAA should make a return, and Antonio!
    Eurgh, I feel it’s a mess all of a sudden and slipped down to 774k! Yikes.

    Still near top of my ML’s, Just anything glaringly obvious to start sorting here?
    No need to panic yet?

    Thanks gents.

      Just wait for the injuries.

        I know yeah! We’ve all got off to a bumpy ride, just glad to not of not been outside of top million for once from the start haha!
        Yeah I’ll wait then, seems the sensible thing to do, cheers TM

      if anything that we learned from the recent gw is to have a very decent bench.
      i got Duffy coming in for TAA but Alonso subbed in by Williams who did not played.

      i will plan to strengthen my bench in upcoming weeks, with Williams to White.
      my current def are TAA-Alonso-Livra-Duffy-Williams

      for your team, i will reassess on Sarr, Allan and Scarlett. Williams of course.

  3. steven8991
    • 5 Years
    16 days, 21 hours ago

    is this WC defender template?

    TAA - Rudiger - Cancelo - Duffy - Livramento

    I want to have Son in my midfield so cannot afford another MCI/CHE def to Duffy/Livra

    1. F4L
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      about as template as you can get. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    2. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      Some will have TAA and 3 from Chelsea/City

    3. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      Some will also have 2 x Chelsea and 2 x City.

      I was initially leaning towards this but there's a lot of value in having Duffy and Livra as 4th and 5th defenders. This gameweek has shown their value coming in from the bench

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      That’s my defence too. I don’t like Rudiger being there though as he’s not attacking enough. I actually just brought Son with a knee-jerk too.

    5. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      If you have Ramsdale yes, but perhaps White instead of Duffy with Sanchez in goal ?

    6. kUwe Inc.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      16 days, 17 hours ago

      that is very decent DEF is you can afford.
      i would say Duffy/Livra must stay as cost enabler.
      who is your FWD? i think if you only choose either Luk/Ron, Son is possible to slot in alongside Salah with that DEF lines.

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    16 days, 21 hours ago

    So everyone is capping Salah next GW then?

    1. steven8991
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      G.Jesus for me.

      I hate captaining player who plays early kick off

      1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Would hate captaining a Brazilian after internationals.

    2. F4L
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      of course. New manager bounce might help Watford, but they just don't look PL level right now

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      Against Watford, probably.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 21 hours ago

        With the United defence following that, it's hard to build a case for NOT captaining him every week for quite a run.

    4. Jars458
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      I have captained him every week. Only reason I am up to 150k from 2 million in GW1

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 21 hours ago

        I should have done that

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 20 hours ago

          We all should have! Nice one, Jars

    5. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      I’m contemplating Son just to be different.

  5. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    16 days, 21 hours ago

    How is this looking? Just about can leave the WC I think.

    Sanchez.
    Alonso, Rudiger, Cancelo, TAA.
    Salah, Raphinha, Gray.
    Jimenez, Anto, Lukaku.
    Bachmann, Benrahma, Bissouma, Tsimikas.
    0.2m ITB, -4 taken already.
    WC activated if a few more injuries pop up.

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      Looks good and fingers crossed no major injuries during IB.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 12 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      No WC needed

  6. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    16 days, 21 hours ago

    1ft and 4.1m itb

    Early thoughts?
    Jota => Son

    Sanchez – (Steele)
    TAA – Christensen – White – (Livramento) - (Ayling)
    Salah – Gray – Jota – Sarr – (Gilmour)
    Antonio – Hwang – CR7

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      Bench is looking skinny, I'd probably deal with Ayling first.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 12 Years
      16 days, 21 hours ago

      Christensen/ Ayling to Cancello

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        yep been thinking about that as well. I just got Christensen in last week - one of my better moves.

        1. waldo666
          • 11 Years
          16 days, 20 hours ago

          I got Christensen last week too but in addition to Rudiger as expected the odd benching for the former. Perhaps you could do similar and transfer Ayling to Rudiger for some more assured starts in the Chelsea defence.

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      I’d do the Son move if you want.
      You’ll have 3 starting defenders assuming one of TAA, Christensen or Ayling plays and I think that one would for sure.

      Son is the value move to me.

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        I see the value there as well. CR7 out to Vardy is looking like my next move.

    4. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      I did this last week as I start to redefine the template. Good move.

  7. Masalarc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    Which one should I swap Traore + Reguilon for?
    1) Emily Smith Rowe + Dias
    2) Grealish + Ben White
    3) Gallagher + Dias

    1. RichRover
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      A

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner

      Surprised ESR is more popular than Gallagher.

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        I have ESR in my WC currently. But would you consider Gallagher as a talisman for Palace TM?
        Similar to Sarr or Jimenez?

    6. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      1

  8. La Roja
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    Why the heck Watford sacked their coach?

    Were they expecting to be in top 6 by now or something?

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      Not top 6.
      They want Ranieri to win them the league.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      A good explanation here
      https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/oct/03/watford-sack-head-coach-xisco-munoz-after-negative-trend-of-performances

      But I wouldn't go thinking about the Ranieri at Leicester; more recent was his stint at Fulham where he won 3 in 17 before being sacked - and Fulham relegated.

  9. EmreCan Hustle

    Good morning DZ.

      1. tokara
        • 7 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Thanks, now i need to hold back my wildcard....wanted Jesus and Ederson in the team zzzzzzzzzzz

  11. Joggers Nipple
    • 12 Years
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    No real issue but killing time. Any longer term thoughts on this-

    Sanchez
    Rudiger Christensen Dias
    Gray Salah Raphina Jota
    Lukaku Jiminez Antonio

    Steele White Livaramento Gilmor 1FT 2.6M ITB

    Plan for next GW is Chrsitensen to TAA if fit or maybe Cancello
    Longer term perhaps Jiminez down to Toney ( maybe the other WOL forward), then upgrade Gray to someone like Saka or change Jota

    See anything better/ more interesting?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      I'd only suggest if you're wildcarding soon, you could freshen up your goalkeeper(s). I got Sanchez from the start due to Brighton's opening fixtures. They've done great but are moving into a tricky patch, and I'm preparing to move Sanchez on.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 12 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        True, thanks. Trying to hold the WC and think I could possibly do it with this team. Cheers for thoughts

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      All sounds reasonable to me, TAA if fit definitely the priority imo.

  12. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    Son(and spurs) looking a lot better without Dele on the pitch. If Dele is gone from the XI for good, Son might be a great option once again.

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      *not that he wasn't already. Really thinking about him on my WC.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      Yes, but it still requires Ndombele to show some consistency, as he's the alternative midfield creator.

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Good point. But think Ndombele on his bad days is still better than Dele right now. The guy seems like a spent force.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 20 hours ago

          Definitely. It amused me to see how hapless Kane remains, but he's not holding Son back so much currently. I do agree that Son is becoming a viable option.

  13. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    Bit off topic but since it's the IB, why not. I've noticed that my team always seems to under perform over the crazy Christmas period so looking for some advice on how to better navigate it.... can't completely put my finger on why this tends to happen to me but I do have quite an aggressive style of play so maybe I'm more likely to be affected by the high levels of rotation than others. Do any of you approach the festive period any differently to the rest of the season?

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      Well done for nabbing the cash out of my grubby hands! 😉

      I don't have any strategy as such, but I'm mindful of the extra rotation in an intense period. Expecting key players to be rested, you need a strong bench.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Mind you, there's the additional factor this time of losing the Africans immediately afterwards, so maybe losing Salah a GW early might be an option. I haven't looked into the dates or games yet.

      2. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Did I win this week? I thought the other dude beat me. Really got away with it with all my injuries and my stupid Alonso transfer

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          16 days, 19 hours ago

          Yeh, in the $5 league, me and Terry took foolish 8-point hits. You wasted fewer transfers than us!

    2. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 20 hours ago

      I'm usually (99% of the time) a late WCer, partly due to the fact that every season my team seems to need a freshen up leading into the craziness of Christmas and the fact we have half a season of information to work with.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 20 hours ago

        Sounds like a decent strategy. I did manage to hold onto my WC a couple of seasons back but foolishly jeopardised my team with a spurs triple up as I recall

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Not really - just play the fixtures. Finding players that will not get lots of rest and rot is key too so you need your bankables.

  14. CR7 is Home
    • 4 Years
    16 days, 20 hours ago

    Anyone else thinking Salah perma captain and going with just one premium?

    Ronaldo + Sarr ➡ Bamford/Watkins + Son ??

    1. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Certainly an option but I still think Lukaku has value with the fixtures and there comes a point where you can't really spend the surplus cash. Value only goes so far.

      Sort of. I'm on Salah and Lukaku, and there are a few fixtures where Lukaku just can't not be capped. But otherwise, Salah covers the captaincy.

        Like Cruyff, I wouldn't chuck Trent. Livra seems a season-keeper to me, so that leaves dropping Duffy for a blue premium.

      2. micsway
        • 8 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        i have to say, one of each is the risk-averse approach and most sensible, might end up with this if TAA fit, granted I've stuck with White over Duffy cause I've had him since the start and give me 3/4 CS of late.

      I went double City.
      No idea if it’s the better option. But it’s what I did.

      It also depends on your team structure. If you want to play 4 at the back, a double up of Royal or Sky blue makes sense.

      If you prefer 352, or even 343, then it doesn't...

  16. Cruyff's Eleven

    They say a week is a long time in football....

    Last week I was pretty sure I'd go Lukaku & CR7 up top on my WC, but after this weekend I'm seriously considering the option Vardy, Jimenez, Toney (from GW10).

    1. Gabbiadini

    2. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Yep, pretty good point G. Two weeks of tinkering to do, but I've watched a lot of games the last few weeks (still in lockdown in Sydney) and Lukaku / CHE look tired, and Werner is always gonna try and nick in before Kaku.

      Toney looks dangerous and a menace against all teams.

      Vardy is sharp, focused.

      Jimenez looks like he is getting back to form and sharpness too.....

      1. RogDog_jimmy

        Lot of money benching the fourth defender each week.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years

          yes, would it not be a 4-3-3/4-4-2?

        Little to much money in D for my liking. Foden will be in and out. Midfield is a little thin.

        If I was w-cing, I'd have a D of:

        White, Rudiger, TAA, Cancelo and Livramento.

        I am trading him in, in gw10.

            No, B Williams is currently in my team.
            Hence why TAA is listed is my team with an *

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Although one of your weakest players to Mbeumo is a good move i would look at Sarr out instead, gives a little extra cash which is handy if your persisting with the big two up top.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        Yes, I would most likely be trading Sarr out just after this per my current plans.
        Definitely do not want him from gw12 onwards, however, I think Everton, Southampton & Arsenal are favourable enough.

        1. maglia rosa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          16 days, 19 hours ago

          Watford are pretty poor, yes Sarr is the standout option. They play Liverpool this week, Everton away is a really tough game for Watford, then fair enough The Saints at home but then Arsenal away which is a hard fixture for Watford.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            16 days, 19 hours ago

            I guess I see it as slightly less of an importance than the other 3 trades I have listed. Otherwise, I'd need to possibly take a hit.
            New manager bounce, let's see.

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              16 days, 19 hours ago

              I don't have to field him this week either I have, Mbeumo v Chelsea or Livramento v Leeds as other options.

      2. maglia rosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        I'm not sure how many times you would plan 3 weeks worth of transfers and actually carry them out as planned.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 19 hours ago

          Obviously, they can evolve and change and is situation-dependent but I do like to play for the fixtures.
          My last 3 trades of Rudiger, Ramsdale and Cancelo were all planned 3 weeks ago, I just got them a slightly different way. Trent injury made the last move slightly different albeit possibly easier.

  19. Echoes

    On a WC.

    A: Pick one between Gray and Mbuembo
    B: how nailed is Laporte?

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year

      For A: pick two between Gray, Mbeumbo and ESR even

    2. Gabbiadini

      2
      Seems the first choice, definitely.

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        Yeah. Going Laporte instead of other city defenders saves me a bit of cash and he also seems to have a few goals in him. Really thinking of bringing him in.

    Is Gallagher now a transfer out waiting to happen?

    Steele Shaw Livramento Scarlett

    1. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Nooo. That's a good team. I'd put Ron to Lukakau and Shaw to Cancello.

    2. tokara

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      I'm not sure I like the defence, with the four CBs.
      I personally would try and find the $ for Cancelo now having seen your team.

      My question would be, do you need 8 attacking options?
      I would say no. If you want to rest a Gray/ESR/etc. then just play a 4atb with two of White/Duffy/Livramento.

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        16 days, 19 hours ago

        May be downgrade Jimmy to Toney and Laporte to Cancelo. How does it look now? Also leaves 0.8 itb

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 18 hours ago

          I'd go ESR to 4.5 probably.
          I think Jimi's fixtures are too superior.

    3. GreennRed

      1. Echoes

        -28 in hits

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          16 days, 19 hours ago

          Hit that button! But depends on what kinda team you can start GW8 with just a hit or two if it's possible to hold off on WC until just before deadline?

    4. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Sa is a fair option but i'd still prefer either Sanchez, The Bee's keeper or Ramsdale. 0.5 can go a long way.

    5. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      I'd say ARS will keep more cs than WOL so I would have Ramsdale at 4.6 so you save some money.
      Is Laporte and Christenen nailed on? I'd rather have Cancello and Rudiger.
      Rest of the team is good.

  23. Disturbed

    c. gallagher

    1. GreennRed

      Prob Gallagher.

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 19 hours ago

      Probably Gallagher. Wolves still have good fixtures and Semedo is a little OOPy. Sarr may still give you returns even though Watford are kak.

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        16 days, 19 hours ago

      1. Gabbiadini

        opinions, but I think B will bring in more points.

          RMT tool suggests not: Son 31 points v Cancello 26.

          Big call to state an attacking OOP like Son will be outscored by a defender no matter who he plays for.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            16 days, 17 hours ago

            it's relative. son will need to score more to make up the difference for who is being traded out.

        16 days, 18 hours ago

        How sold are you on Hwang in general? I'm in two minds, part of me reminds me of the linkup Jota and Jimenez had, but its such a limited sample size

        1. Arctic monkeys
          • 8 Years
          16 days, 18 hours ago

          So limited, eventhough can't see him losing his place in the next few after scoring twice last game with Adama and Podence baing a bit meh. Apparently, he was good in the Bundes as well. His connection with Jim reminds me of Kane and son, hopefully we will get something like it.

          1. zøphar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            16 days, 18 hours ago

            Well jiminez is nailed af so the other options for the 2 wing positions really are Adama, Trincao, Podence and Hwang. None of them are 'goal scorers' as such, they are more creators. Hwang is the only one there with a proper eye for goal so I think he is pretty secure minutes wise now.

            1. Arctic monkeys
              • 8 Years
              16 days, 18 hours ago

              Yeah looks fine for now especially because they've been struggling to score goals. Trincao looks to be a very good player technically speaking but as you mentionned he is not that good of a finisher, and Adama might get the nod when they're playing against teams they would counter. Might be something like Hwayng Jim in most games and then one of Trincao/Adama, but what does it mean for Podence

          I liked what I saw on MoTD, reminds me a bit of Son & Kane.

          Hwang is very quick and Jimenez is quite a clever player and dropping a bit deeper, I think defences will struggle to pick them both up

      Morning

      Do you think this team is in need of wildcarding?

      Bachmann

      Rudiger | TAA | White | Veltman

      Raph | Salah | Jota | Benrahma

      Jiminez | Lukaku | Antonio

      Foster - Livramento - Luiz

      Thanks

        I’d contemplate WC to that team. All seems fine to me

        Thanks. Is it worth taking a few hits then?

        I wanted to bring in Cancelo and Doucoure

      Hey guys, was wondering which Chelsea wing back plays against Brentford (A) and which one gets the champions League midweek game...?!

        What did you come up with?

        1. Totalfootball

          16 days, 17 hours ago

          One will get 4 PL games
          And 1 gets 2 champions League + 1 carabao cup...
          Think Alonso might get the premier League ones..

        Tough to predict, pick someone and hope for best every week.

        I think it will be James/Azpi and Alonso vs Brentford. Hudson and Chilwell vs Malmo.

          Makes more sense to start Chilwell v Brentford and Alonso in the CL. Chilwell is going to be well retsed because of no International duties while alonso while alonso is playing for spain

      3. bench boost for every gamew…

        If Chilwell is up to speed both physically and mentally there not really a competition.
