Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best and worst upcoming FPL fixtures?

Our regular frisk of the fixtures sees us assess the Premier League clubs and players with – in theory – the strongest and weakest runs of league matches over the coming weeks.

The primary focus in this article will be on the next six Gameweeks but we will scrutinise the longer-term prospects where appropriate.

BEST FIXTURES

CHELSEA

Lukaku on target as Chelsea assets prosper at Arsenal 4

Wildcard or not, Gameweek 7 was seemingly the week to go all-in on Chelsea assets ahead of a fantastic run of fixtures. Over 2.8 million of last week’s transfers brought in Thomas Tuchel’s men, two million of which were for Antonio Rudiger (£5.8m), Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) and Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m). Saturday’s 3-1 win over Southampton disappointed many, with no goals or clean sheets for the trio – and Alonso didn’t even play, as the anticipated rotation with Ben Chilwell (£5.6m) begins.

Newly-promoted Brentford are up next but, such has been the Bees’ impressive start, it’s the three games after that which are worth targeting. Gameweeks 9-11 pit the European champions against the three teams currently in the relegation zone – Norwich City (H), Newcastle United (a) and Burnley (H). Lukaku will be the most popular captaincy choice, despite not scoring in his last three league matches.

Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) set up two goals against Southampton for a 10-point return and he isn’t just the safe option: he has scored more points than any defensive teammate since Tuchel’s January arrival. His 118 pips the 112 of Rudiger thanks to one goal, four assists and 12 clean sheets.

SOUTHAMPTON

Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win 7

Next six: LEE | BUR | wat | AVL | nor | LIV

A fortnight after getting a draw away to Manchester City, the Saints were about to snatch another point at Stamford Bridge until James Ward-Prowse’s (£6.4m) 77th-minute red card. Two goals in the final ten minutes brought about a defeat but they will relish home clashes against Leeds United and Burnley.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have struggled to score this season. Only twice have they found the net in open play, with their ‘goals for’ tally supplemented with two penalties and an own-goal. Yet they face a Leeds defence which has conceded the most shots of any team so far, boosting the appeal of cheap striker Adam Armstrong (£6.0m). The former Blackburn man scored 28 Championship goals last season and his 21 shots is beaten only by Michail Antonio (£8.0m) amongst forwards.

At the back, Alex McCarthy could be a solid £4.5m goalkeeping option should he continue to start ahead of Fraser Forster (£4.4m), with popular cheap pick Tino Livramento (£4.2m) getting forward regularly from right-back. He won the penalty at Chelsea and has delivered returns in three of his last four matches.

MANCHESTER CITY

Kane missing for Spurs as Guardiola starts Grealish

Next six: BUR | bha | CRY | mun | EVE | WHU

Pep Guardiola will be pleased to have gained four points from back-to-back away games at Chelsea and Liverpool. Man City have already won two of their three home matches 5-0 and up next is Burnley – an opponent who they have beaten by that same 5-0 margin on four successive home meetings, with an aggregate score of 30-1 over eight matches in all competitions. It’s a remarkable record but one that is hard to interpret from an attacking viewpoint, as 13 Man City players shared the goals and 14 provided assists. That general trend has continued this season, as no player has scored (or assisted) more than two of their 14 goals so far.

Despite Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m) quietly becoming the third highest-scoring forward, only Jack Grealish (£7.9m) compares well to others statistically, with his 51 penalty area touches and 18 chances created ranking highly. He has played most of their minutes but has contributed just one goal and one assist. It’s difficult enough predicting who Guardiola selects, never mind whose turn it is to score.

However, at the back, their defensive brings more reliability. They kept five clean sheets in a row before going to Anfield and have conceded by far the fewest goal attempts (43), shots in the box (26) and tally of expected goals conceded (4.01). Ruben Dias (£6.1m) and Joao Cancelo (£6.2m) will be popular transfers to make – maybe both – ahead of Burnley (H), Brighton and Hove Albion (a) and Crystal Palace (H). But this defence is so dominant, they can shut out any opponent.

ARSENAL

Next six: CRY | AVL | lei | WAT | liv | NEW

Gameweek 4 was a turning point for Arsenal. Bottom of the league after losing all matches without scoring, Mikel Arteta handed debuts to goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) and right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu (£4.6m). The match against Norwich also saw Ben White (£4.4m) and Gabriel (£5.0m) back from injury and so, with a new-look defence in place, it must be satisfying for Arteta to see the Gunners keep three clean sheets from the subsequent four games.

This continues a similar finish to last season and facing Crystal Palace (H), Watford (H) and Newcastle (H) over the next six games will provide a great chance for more. In midfield, there’s another promising cheap option in Emile Smith Rowe (£5.3m), although some managers may prefer to spend an extra million on Bukayo Saka (£6.3m), given his more frequent shots and chances created.

BRENTFORD

Next six: CHE | LEI | bur | NOR | new | EVE

Just like their Gameweek 8 opponents Chelsea, Brentford face the bottom three in succession – Burnley (a), Norwich (H) and Newcastle (a). Yet Thomas Frank’s bold side will be confident of breaching Chelsea and Leicester City, having scored two against the statistically strong Wolves defence, three against Liverpool and another pair in an impressive away win at West Ham. Ivan Toney (£6.3m) dominated Virgil van Dijk (£6.6m) in the air, is on penalties and has four goal involvements from the last five matches, with out-of-position bargain Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) playing beside him and finally converting shots that hit the woodwork (four so far) into goals.

David Raya (£4.6m) and his defence rank favourably in terms of shots conceded (85) and expected goals conceded (7.99). They have two representatives – Pontus Jansson (£4.6m) and Ethan Pinnock (£4.6m) – within the top five defenders, who have aadded a handful of assists to three clean sheets. The west Londoners have been a wonderful addition to the top flight and look strong at both ends, combined with a fearless mentality and highly-regarded transfer policy.

ALSO CONSIDER

Leeds will also be confident of beating Southampton, followed by Wolves (H) and Norwich (a) afterwards. This pair also has good games, with Wolves four fixtures through an 11-match streak that avoids last season’s top five. Despite being rooted to last place, Norwich have a chance of making this season competitive by soon facing Brighton, Leeds, Southampton and Wolves at home.

WORST FIXTURES

MANCHESTER UNITED

Ronaldo scores again, Shaw blanks, budget defender Duffy impresses: FPL notes

Next six: lei | LIV | tot | MCI | wat | che

If the two blanks of Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m) already had you nervous, look away now. Here are the Red Devils’ next opponents: Leicester, Atalanta (twice), Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Man City, Watford, Villarreal and Chelsea. Lots of fixture congestion, lots of travelling and their only home league matches are against arguably the two strongest teams in the division.

Luke Shaw (£5.4m) lost almost a million owners before Gameweek 7 and there is set to be similar mass sales for Mason Greenwood (£7.6m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.9m) and Paul Pogba (£7.7m). Just one clean sheet has been kept so far and Greenwood hasn’t scored in four matches. It could be added that – after removing Watford – last season’s equivalent meetings with the five sides yielded seven goals and only one defeat.

Fernandes scored, assisted and brought home 12 points at Leicester, eclipsing his 11 points from the previous visit.

WEST HAM UNITED

Vestergaard injury latest as Antonio and Benrahma haul again 2

Next six: eve | TOT | avl | LIV | wol | mci

Michail Antonio is a classic FPL debate of form versus fixtures. He has five goals and four assists from six matches, narrowly coming second to Mohamed Salah for attempts (27) and shots inside the box (23). The third most-owned player in FPL has been outstanding but is about to be tested with some tougher fixtures. Four of West Ham’s next six league matches are away, with Liverpool and Tottenham at home.

Then sprinkle in three Europa League nights and an EFL Cup clash with Man City and it looks demanding, even for Antonio. Selling him would still be difficult to proceed with, despite a promising set of alternative strikers in Toney, Armstrong, Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) and Callum Wilson (£7.3m). The sale of Said Benrahma (£6.6m) may not be as difficult, having only provided one goal in five matches.

WATFORD

Vardy scores at both ends, Tielemans’ advanced role, Sarr and Saint-Maximin return again: FPL notes 9

Next six: LIV | eve | SOU | ars | MUN | lei

It had been a respectable start for Watford back in the Premier League. Points were dropped against Newcastle and Leeds but two wins over Aston Villa and Norwich put the Hornets in 15th position. True to form, the club sacked Xisco Munoz on Sunday and replaced him with Claudio Ranieri. The Italian has been dropped into a terrible run of fixtures, facing Liverpool (H), Everton (a), Arsenal (a), Man United (H) and Leicester (a) during their next six.

Yet to keep a clean sheet, the only defensive asset with any appeal is Ben Foster because he’s the only £4.0m playing goalkeeper. Whilst strikers Joshua King (£5.5m) and Emmanuel Dennis (£5.3m) can be cheap enablers, the club’s talisman is Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m). Although he has already scored four times and ranks second for shots on target throughout the league, combining upcoming fixtures with the quality of his teammates may suggest it’s a good time to sell.

However, being on penalty duty does add a slight fixture-proof factor.

ALSO CONSIDER

Leicester have had an underwhelming start to the season and are about to face Man United (H) and Chelsea (H) in upcoming weeks. Newcastle are seemingly devoid of hope, despite scoring in all-but-one match so far. Their games are about to turn, going against Tottenham (H) and Chelsea (H) in their next three.

        I had a dream last night that I brought Lukaku in -4 for CR7 and he blanked during the Brentford game. Very frustrating.

          Bottomed in last article....

          Thoughts on my current WC draft?

          Ramsdale Foster
          Dias Cancelo Azpi Rudiger Livra
          Salah Foden Saka Raph Luiz
          Lukaku Toney Antonio

          Strategy to get TAA back in gw10 for 2 premium defenders or 1 premium defender plus Foden.

          Really want to find a way to get Vardy in my team.....only way I can do this is to replace Toney, Foden, and Dias for Vardy, Mbuemo and Duffy. Plus it makes getting TAA back in a bit more tricky

          1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

              So you think i should do the moves to get Vardy in? Then it comes down to difficulty on fitting 3 premiums plus Trent

            In some ways it might make getting TAA easier, but would mean moving on one of Lukaku or Vardy

          How about this for a cheeky penalty taker set up? Armstrong > Toney GW9/10

          Ramsdale // Foster
          TAA Cancelo Rudiger // Livra Manquillo
          Salah Zaha Sarr Raphinha // Brownhill

            The thing that puts me off Raphinha is all the International business. Could still be the pick over Foden though...

              Yeah same. Last IB there was non stop talk and speculation both in the run up to and during. This time round seems to be polar opposite. Any chance of a write up? Having said that, I was thinking of doing one myself.

            Foden. More explosive and will play more games this season. One of city’s best players

          If TAA is out...

          A) KdB, Chilwell, ESR
          B) Son, Foden, Tierney

          Hmm... maybe KdB isn't out of the equation yet. A looks better to me short-term.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            14 days, 11 hours ago

            Knew you wouldn’t shake KDB off for good, he still looks like a mental good pick especially with the next 3. ESR is struggling to excite me tho

            • 5 Years

            I like B. Alonso big threat to Chilly.

              For some reason, I really want to double on Chelsea defense with Chilwell - Rudiger for this next run of games. I think Chilwell is back. He played well vs Southampton even though he gave the pen away, he should get a run of games now and when he plays he has TAA potential for 2m less.

              He has like 18 pointers in him which makes me willing to risk a benching or two. If he gets 18, 10, 0, 1 he's doing better than 6, 6, 6, 6.

              1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                • 11 Years
                14 days, 11 hours ago

                I would steer well clear of both Chilwell & Alonso - Tuchel will rotate them across league & champions league, and you can bet your bottom dollar there'll be plenty of pre-60th minute subs off/on, and 1 pointers from both the bench and the start, even in games where Chelsea clean

                Absolute FPL fool's gold imo

                1. pingissimus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  14 days, 10 hours ago

                  More or less the same incidence of Chilwell and Cancelo cameos last season - both low risk if history is a guide. Alonso a slightly dodgier prospect but nowhere near James territory.

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • 11 Years
                    14 days, 9 hours ago

                    Last season not a good comparator imo

                    Half of it was Lamps who signed Chilwell, and city had more left backs available than they do this year

                    1. pingissimus
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      14 days, 9 hours ago

                      More or less agree that Cancelo is the one to be on actually if it's a straight choice.

                      He's very much my City defender of choice right now but I'm also eying Laporte slightly curiously. Historically he's a very decent source of those irregular attacking returns - not so long back that he and VVD were essentially level pegging after all. Would need to see consistent evidence of Stones on the backburner though so a that'd be longer term play if at all.

                2. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  14 days, 10 hours ago

                  And what makes Cancelo better exactly?

                  Zinchenko can come in just as easily. In fact, that was the CL final team - Zinchenko, Walker as the FBs and yet I don't see anyone being worried about picking Cancelo.

                  High risk, high reward on both.

                  1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
                    • 11 Years
                    14 days, 9 hours ago

                    If Cancelo could only play right back he’d be in the same boat

                    But he actually can play in 2 positions so is in a completely different risk level - then take Mendy out of the equation and it improves even further

                    Laporte & Zinchenko between them will probably get 10-ish starts at LB over the remaining league games, but Cancelo will probably start 5-ish of those at right back

              2. Tonyawesome69
                • 2 Years
                14 days, 11 hours ago

                I probably would've taken a punt on Chilwell if there was a league game this weekend instead of Internationals. Both Alonso and Chilwell called up for their respective country. Not sure I would go there after being burnt with Alonso

                agree with maximus ,surely mendy is a double up option

            14 days, 9 hours ago

            I'm tempted by KDB! Could get there for -4 else Foden for free. Probably A as not sure of Son value from a team and fixtures perspective. Although I have Tierney and he's done well/ hasn't even fulfilled his attacking return potential yet. Also put Chilly in last week as a bit of fun as I have a strong bench feat Livra who I'd be happy to come in.

        9. Hryszko
          • 4 Years
          14 days, 11 hours ago

          Any thoughts on this team for the next week? Already made my move to bring in Cancelo, thinking about Jota > Son or Cr7 > Lukaku, both would be for a -4 but then would be really happy with the side. Can I hold off on either of those moves? Have 2.5m in the bank so have exact funds to do the Son move.

          Sanchez
          Trent - Rudiger - Cancelo
          Salah - Jota - Gray - ESR
          Antonio - Toney - Cr7

          Steele - Sissoko - Williams - Livra

            • 11 Years
            14 days, 11 hours ago

            I think Jota to Son long term works out
            Firmino not playing for Brazil so you'd imagine has a good chance to start vs Watford

              I cant see who else to bench, maybe I dont need to make a choice with TAA and alonso

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 2 Years
                14 days, 11 hours ago

                I'm not sure either. Sarr/Watford v Liverpool who will most likely not have Alisson and Fabinho could have returns. Maybe save FT instead. Bench is fine for any rotation/injuries in TAA and Alonso

            If you already have Salah and will bring in Son and Lukaku at some point, probably Son for GW8 V Newcastle then Lukaku GW9 v Norwich

                  Actually had cash to burn so moved on from Antonio - still enough for 3 premiums at the back. Currently double Chelsea but I expect to switch into Liverpool Chelsea City from Ron to Rom cash in a week possibly two.

                  Could easily be burnt of course but Vardy is a special case for me 😉 Spent most of the second half of last season preaching about how bad he was statistically from open play but he's very dear to my heart and I'm quite willing to go down with him if he goes off the boil.

                Only if Rodgers is insane - he’s not in a position to mess about with his team selection anymore (hopefully)

                  Well he's started by far his best player from the second half of last season only once so he may well be insane.

                It's tough, depends on your kids age, schooling and future location and housing options.

                Best of luck. Try to make it work for your kids but but not at any cost, including theirs as well as you two too.

              Hi

              Looking at replacing Jota and Benrahma what do you think of the below replacements and which two?

              A. Doucouré
              B. Saka
              C. Mbeumo
              D. Anyone else I have Raph

              Much appreciated.

                How is this team looking?

                Raya
                Trent Matip Cancelo
                Son Doucoure (S)alah Gray
                DCL Vardy Antonio

                Foster Duffy Livra Bissouma

                Thank heavens there are two great options with Duffy and Livra for bench this season. We have been spoiled.

                Only slight rotation risks would be Matip and Cancelo. Obviously DCL and TAA still doubts but they would have had enough time to recover by the end of the IB.

                Not being template may be an issue but need to be bold with selections to try climb being at 976k. Other than that, quite happy.

                1. TheBiffas

                    triple everton attack is... bold.

                      Doucoure and Gray are ticking over nicely and wanted to be ahead of the curve with DCL as he will be flavour of the week if he hauls GW8 and vs WHU defence, triple up on EVE not the worst case scenario.

                      Chelsea defence is a lottery. Rudiger an option but going to stick with Matip for now. I may move him to Dias though.

                  • GreennRed
                    • 10 Years
                    14 days, 10 hours ago

                    DCL will be nicely rested but it's a big ask for him to go full bore without match fitness. No doubting his ability or the Toffees Rafalutionary improvement.

                  Any changes here folks? Think I'm set on the WC:

                  McCarthy Foster
                  Azpi Rudi Cancelo Dias Livramento
                  Salah Son Raph Mbeumo Luiz
                  Lukaku Vardy Toney

                  Benching headache some weeks, but rotation in the defence / the Brazil thing might help that I guess!

                  City defence double up with Cancelo and Dias/Laporte instead of Cancelo and Rudiger anyone?

                  I keep coming back to this WC team (assuming Trent is out) - whatcha think?

                    Great!

                    But according to Klopp TAA should be fit.
                    I would do Son, Laporte & Hwang to Saka, TAA & Toney if he's fit.

                  Spanner in the works for Ronaldo is Ole benching him GW7 for Cavani.

                  Not going to happen every GW but clearly Cavani will get starts or subbed on 2nd half. Not the ideal situation owning the most expensive player in the game.

                  I am quite comfortable loosing both Ronaldo and Lukaku. Not only are the proving to be not worth their price, their blanks have made my rank stagnate.

                  Having Son and Vardy instead of Lukaku and Ronaldo should cover their absence.

                    You can keep posting trying to convince yourself. But it doesn't change the fact that Chelsea's fixtures are insanely good.

                    I agree on Ronaldo being a poor option and Son being a good one but I'm definitely going Lukaku over Vardy.

                    1. FOO FIGHTER
                      • 2 Years
                      14 days, 10 hours ago

                      Convince myself?

                      I believe I have made the right choice to move away from Lukaku and Ronaldo.

                      If Lukaku was posting the same stats as Werner I may have considered keeping him. I read an article yesterday which was talking about Lukaku not being the right player for Tuchel's system and the more I ponder about it, the more agree that he is not the right fit for CHE. Not many may know but he missed 19 big chances in Serie A last season, damning numbers for what is apparently the 'best striker' in the PL. His current situation has not provided with any reason to keep hold irrespective of his 'easy' fixtures.

                      Yes he could haul vs Norwich but I have made moves getting rid which are more than capable of covering any hauls he may have lined up.

                        Guess who missed 19 big chances last season in PL? Your beloved Vardy and a certain Mo Salah.

                          PL a different ball game compared to Serie A.

                          The fact that Lukaku is struggeling does not make your point look any better for Lukaku 🙂

                          1. Rassi
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            14 days, 9 hours ago

                            A big chance is a big chance in both leagues. Getting to those situations may be more difficult in PL than in Serie A but the odds of scoring from one should be roughly the same.

                          2. Rassi
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            14 days, 9 hours ago

                            My point is: if you use stats, use them honestly and forget your obvious bias.

                            1. FOO FIGHTER
                              • 2 Years
                              14 days, 9 hours ago

                              What bias? I owned Lukaku from GW4. GW7 for a player eating up two spots from other assets who are doing well and sitting with 3 GW's worth of blanks.

                              Some do not even have Lukaku yet so again not sure where you are trying to go with your point.

                              1. Rassi

                                14 days, 9 hours ago

                                I call that bias if you deem Rom's 19 missed big chances damning numbers and yet dismiss the same stat for Vardy.

                                1. FOO FIGHTER
                                  • 2 Years
                                  14 days, 9 hours ago

                                  Well, he has had very little big chances as yet. Where is my bias?

                                  Do you or don't you have Lukaku yet.

                                  Many only getting him in from GW9 but I am biased? If I was biased I would not have owned him already.

                                      Me not having him has zero relevance in this discussion. I don't care who you have in your team or not. I just hate people abusing stats. Something that happens here all the time unfirtunately.

                                      Calling me biased for owning him for 3 GW's and getting rid makes your point ridiculous.

                                      In fact, your point is leading to a dead end if you do not own him already.

                                      Uhm no, you are avoiding the question of why you have not owned Lukaku yet.

                                      I have so please you are making things difficult for yourself.

                                      He said in a post a week or two ago that he hasn't watched football for a few seasons, so it's all stats and discussion based.

                                      Lukaku is obviously leading the line for Chelsea and like Man City it's a crucial role for the team.

                          It's all about points banked in FPL. There're a few sides to any argument though. Better missing chances and taking plenty than having a few attempts, head drops, confidence goes. Salah and Vardy look improved on last season, both thrive in front of a full house.

                        The best thing that could happen Lukaku is a dubious injury oraiing for Belgium and he has to rest for two weeks and be back nice and fresh for GW8. Looks tired to me and he's not the forward for constant high press.

                        I don't think you can conclude so early that Lukaku is not going to be a good FPL option at Chelsea. He's an elite forward who has a proven goal scoring track record in the PL. Styles can be adapted, players can improve. Just because you didn't play well in one game, or even 3 games (which were against Spurs, City and Southampton mind) doesn't mean you will never play well again.

                        And an undisputed fact is that the fixtures are perfect for him to regain his form. Ignoring fixtures is not how I play FPL. Fixtures matter. Historic data says they matter. Players score more points against weaker opposition. And Lukaku has a history of being a big points scorer.

                        But as you say 'I believe I have made the right choice to move away from Lukaku and Ronaldo.'

                        That's your opinion. I don't agree with it and have given my reasons. But if you think you have better reasons or that those other reasons have more weight, than go for it. We're all out here trying to draw our own conclusions from the data we're given and we'll often not come to the same ones.

                          I never mentioned anything about him not being a good option.

                          I have owned him, 3 weeks, 3 blanks.

                          Now I am being called 'biased'because I felt it was a good move getting rid.

                          Many who are having wetvdreams about Lukaku do not even own him yet and waited forv'easy' fixtures.

                          Oh dear.

                            "I never mentioned anything about him not being a good option."

                            Then why are you getting rid when his fixtures are about to be amazing? You're not making sense I'm afraid. 3 blanks doesn't mean he won't score points in the next few games.

                              Because he prefers other options at this time.

                    Two players that most people own haven't made your rank stagnant lol. That's due to your entire team and your FPL management.

                      Oh dear, as if you are the best FPL manager in history.

                      What a fooking stupid comment.

                        Do you see any other Lukaku or Ronaldo owners complain that they have made their rank stagnant? If you're at 1m rank, that's on you.

                          I am not complaing about being 976k so you are being like a child sitting infront of the tv with your team losing with in Fifa 22.

                          Spot on. Some with both might complain but similar to your post up there Ronaldo and/or Lukaku in a team hindering some teams. It's not those one or two, it's insisting they're in your team without looking at alternative 15s without the or with one rather than both. Paying too much heed to 'must have player X for upcoming Gameweeks' articles and not doing a bit of research, picking their own players, learning from their own mistakes and patting themselves on the back/annoying other others here when those picks work out.

                    Lukaku is interesting one

                    Norwich week 9 looks a slam dunk selection. Beyond that I think it's less clear if EO is no worry. He has a very decent record as a striker but his PL record is less stellar than his Italian record - there were few gripes when United sold him on and his great Everton season is his real calling card in PL terms.

                    What we're yet to see is whether Chelsea can successfully make him the focal point of their attack and become a potent attack. There isn't much history of Chelsea being a prolific attack or of maintaining a talismanic striker. He should be on for a 20 goal season but that isn't in and of itself cause for a slam dunk selection - there'll be others in that range.

                    Imminent fixtures surely say yes though. Spurs look an utter mess right now if you're looking Son.

                      Spurs don't look great. Son can still do well. One of the most underrated PL players and FPL picks.

                      If Lukaku relies on Norwich and Malmo to boost his confidence so be it. Prolific is one way to describe but he rarely does it in the big games. A great FPL pick and an overrated striker.

                        By no means writing Son off - he's just a really tricky pick right now given Spurs imo.

                        Amusingly my zombie team is now ahead of my real team on the back of GWR of around 1000 last week and he and Jim are mainstays there as is captain Mo of course.

                  Sticking with TAA in the squad, want to make one of these moves this week and one next week.. which is a better move to do this week?

                  1. Jota > Son
                  2. Cr7 > Lukaku

                  What's the story with Mane's chances. This 10 day quarantine rule isn't clear to me. Is it 10 days isolation whe they arrive back home or are they grand to play if they pass a COVID test?

                  A Tinkerman ambush perhaps?

                    Mane doesn't have to quarantine when travelling back from a red country as long as he is double jabbed. Klopp stated 99% of his squad is double jabbed.

                    10 day isolation if he isn't double jabbed and travelling back from a red listed country

                      Cheers. Alisson and Fabinho also double jabbed will miss Watford game.

                        They're missing the Watford game because the Brazil match is extremely late not because they have to isolate.

                          Yeah, it's mad late. Argentina too. Hopefully Ranieri picks Foster. Not expecting close to a CS but more than a benched Martinez.
