Who are the best Man City FPL attackers for their Gameweek 8 fixture swing?

Manchester City have had an encouraging start to their 2021/22 campaign, despite a tough run of fixtures which has seen them visit Liverpool, Chelsea, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

During their opening seven Premier League matches, they have netted 14 goals, and given their forthcoming schedule (see below), it’s easy to see why many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are scouting their assets ahead of Gameweek 8.

With Etihad encounters against Burnley and Crystal Palace in the next three, plus a trip to high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion – a side who they have traditionally done well against under Pep Guardiola – the upside is clearly huge.

However, nailing down a regular starting attacker isn’t straightforward. Looking at City’s two most recent Premier League matches against Liverpool and Chelsea, their ‘strongest’ XI probably looks something like this:

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Bernardo, De Bruyne; Jesus, Grealish, Foden

That will of course change as the season progresses, and we have seen before just how quickly the landscape can change. Only a few weeks ago, Ferran Torres (£6.9m) was of huge Fantasy interest but has now failed to feature since Gameweek 4, while Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) – a popular pre-season pick – hasn’t started a single Premier League match since the opening day.


Manchester City’s 2021/22 Premier League line-ups and minutes

It’s also worth noting that for their forthcoming run of fixtures, Guardiola will probably look to use his full squad, and perhaps be less reliant on that ‘strongest’ XI.

The rotation is further complicated by two important UEFA Champions League clashes against Club Brugge, which have taken on extra significance following defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in Matchday 2. The first fixture, which takes place in Belgium, arrives just three days after Burnley, while the return match is four days after Crystal Palace’s visit in Gameweek 10. 

There is also an EFL Cup trip to West Ham United to navigate after that latter match, but given that fringe players will surely be given a run-out here, if anything, it’s probably a positive for FPL managers.

Regardless of that, the schedule does suggest some rotation, which is why we have some big decisions to make ahead of Gameweek 8. So, before we give a player-by-player assessment of the main contenders, it goes without saying that if you do choose to invest, additional squad depth is definitely advisable.

      B without Torres

    2. BIGREDDOG
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not a fan of Hwang, Townsend or Torres. 1st one for me

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B with Hwang & Foden

    4. PretzleDuckUSA
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      A

  2. BIGREDDOG
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I quite fancy Sarr and Coady to Cancelo and Normann. Dumb?

    1. BIGREDDOG
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      For -4 lol

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Who is Normann?

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Defensive mid for Norwich who likes to shoot from distance and seems to be on direct free kicks.

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Sounds bench fodder i.e. save the extra 0.1 and go Brownhill

        2. Zero
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          A worse Neves playing for a worse team, gotcha

  3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    TAA price protected or just a massive amount of WCs being played? Second most transferred out player during IB and not even close to dropping.

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      he already dropped once

  4. FCSB
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Best option:

    1. Duffy Foden Antonio Jimenez
    2. Walker Son Toney Hwang

    Cheers

    What happens if Lukaku is actually injured...

    Look at this...

    Ramsdale Foster
    Cancelo Chilwell Tierney Duffy Livramento
    Salah KdB Son Raphinha Mbeumo
    Werner Antonio Davis

    It's actually rather nice if Timo Werner actually decides to be good.

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It’s a trap

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        That midfield though... Dream midfield.

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Midfield a delight but close your eyes for 5 secs open them and look at that front three …. So many better options for that cash than Werner and you still keep that midfield.

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Agree. Looks nice. Not so sure about Arsenal defence however..

    2. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He’s shouldn’t even be considered IMO

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Werner > Watkins for me.
      Tierney > TAA
      (if that works)

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        There's also Jesus over Werner...

    4. Ruth_NZ
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not sure it is the dream midfield, Camzy. KDB is going to have to equal his best season to justify 12m (or whatever he is now).

      Also, structurally it is wrong. Forget about Lukaku for a moment, from around GW14 you are almost certainly going to want Ronaldo. So either you will have to re-structure at that time or you could do the simpler thing and have a premium striker now.

      If Lukaku is out (which I doubt), you could still have Werner there, or DCL, or Vardy even but with enough banked to upgrade to Lukaku when he's fit. That would necessarily mean losing KDB but in all honesty I don't think that's a terrible loss.

      To shape the squad with a super-premium striker slot is the thing, irrespective of short-term considerations really.

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I think having KdB actually soft solves the premium forward problem.

        It's two moves or a simple -4 to do KdB + Werner > Lukaku/Ronaldo + mid-priced mid.

        I went even more budget in attack and managed this:

        Ramsdale Foster
        TAA Rudiger Cancelo Duffy Livramento
        Salah KdB Son Raphinha Mbeumo
        Watkins Toney Davis

        Again, I can switch the big hitter slot from KdB > Bruno or KdB + Watkins > Ronaldo/Lukaku + Mid-priced mid.

        It's not that difficult really. But yeah, with Lukaku's fixtures, you kinda just have to get him I think...

    5. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Werner against Norwich could be gold.

  6. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    If anyone thinking of getting Mbeumo he was + 75 couple of hours ago and now at + 96 on fpl stats so expect a price rise tonight

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      FPL Stats quickly losing all credibility with its wild fluctuations.

    2. DavvaMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      He seems to be at 80.1 now?

  7. Pukkipartyy
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    So i have, TAA, James, Rudi, Lukaku, Jimi, Raphinha. FT already used.

    Maybe FH? Or just go with it?
    Livra, Semedo, Sissoko on the bench.

    Thx.

    1. CR7 is Home
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Is Jimi doubtful too?

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

      Wouldn't FH this week. Likely to be lineup surprises because of the IB.

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I reckon Rudiger, Lukaku TAA will all be fine. Jimi could be ok too. Raphinha prob the only real issue.

      Wait till Friday and get more news … likely you’ll be fine doing nothing as your bench will be enough cover for a week.

  8. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I want to go Mendy but am bit worried about Kepa, will he get prem games if Mendy fit?

    1. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Doubt Kepa will get many PL games. Just have Foster on the bench for backup.

  9. The-Red-1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA Azpilicueta Cancelo Dias Livramento
    Salah Son Raphinha Mbuemo _____
    Antonio Toney _____

    Luiz Jesus (+0.3m)
    Or Foden Hwang?

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Luiz & whoever you want for me.
      Jesus - sure...I prefer Watkins but each to their own.

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B

    3. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B

  10. ZimZalabim
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    WC decision between these 3 options

    A. Son + Hwang
    B. Vardy + ESR
    C. Foden + Jimi

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      these the 7th & 8th attackers?
      you have 3 or 4 at the back?

      I don't like ESR. In any instance other than 9th attacker I think.
      Hwang at 8th attacker max.

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        rest of the team is

        Ramsdale (Foster)
        TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger (Duffy, Livramento)
        Salah, Mbuemo, Raph, xxxx (Brownhill)
        Lukaku, Antonio, xxxx

        So 6&7 attackers you can say, both would be needed most weeks but bench is strong enough to handle some benchings its the cameos that are more of an issue.

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I like C best

      1. ZimZalabim
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        cheers.

        Yeah C does look the best option overall I think but Im really tempted by A.

    3. luk46
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Im on A myself right now

    4. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      C

  11. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Likely to move Jota to Foden for -4 if doubts over Jota fitness. Bench hopefully covers any other doubts- look good enough and save WC ?

    Sanchez
    Alonso Rüdiger Cancelo
    Salah Foden Raphinha Saka Benrahma
    Ronaldo Antonio

    Foster Semedo Livramento Scarlett

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Looks great no need to WC,

  12. Amartey Partey
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Reasons to captain Salah GW8:

    1. It's Salah

    Reasons not to captain Salah GW8:

    1. Early kickoff
    2. Watford have new manager, Ranieri
    3. Liverpool will likely be without key players Fabinho, Becker, Jota, and possibly TAA

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Think 1. and 2. are not reasons to not captain Salah.

      Fabinho has been in and out - Salah has performed with Jota or Firmino.
      Liverpool can concede 5 goals and Salah is still a good option, so Becker doesn't matter.

      So really the only thing that might matter is the TAA thing...and we don't know about that yet and may not know ahead of time.

      No worries from me!

      1. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Good points. I'm going back and forth between Salah and Son.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Salah.

      2. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Salah's probably got all those "United will win the league with CR7" hot takes up on his wall for extra motivation to prove them all wrong.

      3. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Uncertainty at the back can definetely restrain the attack. Otherwise agree!

    2. luk46
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      reason to captain Salah: best player in the league!

    3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah im rarely success when captaining in early games
      a bit hard to choose

  13. ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Who do we think gets more points
    A) Vardy and Foden
    B) Antonio and Son

    1. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I think it's close, but if I had to guess I'd go with B because of the unkown minutes Foden will get over the course of the season.

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        this, I would prefer B myself too. Vardy someone who is always good for 15-20 goals a season tho

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B for me

    3. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      i will try to get vardy and son if possible

  14. luk46
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    what do you prefer on wc?

    A - Hwang + Luiz bench (343)
    B - Townsend + 4.5 striker bench (352)

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'd go A.

      1. luk46
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Im on that right now, thanks!

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          no worries.

  15. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Not sure why the masses are in a rush to bring in Toney and Mbeumo with Chelsea (and Leicester) up next. Surely wait at least a gameweek before doing so? Both look like they will be rising before deadline :/

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I have a FT and a slot on the bench, hence why for me I am thinking of doing Sarr to Mbeumo to catch the price rise.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        If you do it to catch the price rise then fair play. But otherwise I would just save the FT if you don't expect to play him

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Yes, but if your plan is to trade him in next week then I'd just do it this week, cheaper.

    2. luk46
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It feels like Brentford can score vs any team and Leicester are anything, but a good defence this year.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Right, Leicester are a clean sheet-free zone. Only the Chelsea game is off-putting, then it's a decent run of fixtures.

    3. 1984 TC

      3 months, 11 days ago

      How dare you question decisions made on this site!?!? Especially when 99%of the peeps on here, consistently finish in the top 100 every freakin year since 1999!

  16. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Save FT?

    Ramsdale
    Alonso Cancelo Rudiger Tomiyasu
    Salah (C) Raphina Benrahma
    Lukaku Auba Antonio
    ___
    Foster Sarr Brownhill Fodder

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      As I mentioned above, you could so Sarr to Mbeumo if you plan on getting him next week?

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I do plan on that but Benrahma will be the one leaving the team first. Will keep Sarr untill after the sou game

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Interesting. Personally, I'm not sure who I'd trade first out of those two.

    2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Play sarr over tomi i think with no allison and liverpool defence looks vulnerable

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Sarr debate is an interesting one. In two minds whether to hold or keep as I want to catch Mbeumo's rise.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I could trade Allan to Mbeumo but I'm not sure I'd field Sarr over any of my other 7 attackers over the next two weeks.
          Would also cost me an extra trade down the line.

      2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Plus watford will once again try to beat Liverpool first

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          wdym by this? As in beat them like they did last year?

          1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            last two year when they end Klopps unbeaten streak

            1. Gabbiadini
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 11 days ago

              The other fixture they lost and scored no goals.

              1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 11 days ago

                but still i will play Sarr over the likes of Chelsea defence too

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 11 days ago

                  Personally, I would play a Chelsea defender. They have the greatest upside IMO as all are attacking threats.

    Couple of questions...

    1) is it plain stupid not to captain Salah this week? I can't say I have an obvious alternative given fixtures and doubts post IB. I'm looking to make some ground starting this week but seems this is not the week for differential captain.
    2) If you owned James, would you hold and hope he's back this week or next and go with him as your only Chelsea defender OR move him to City defender? It's either James or Semedo OUT for Dias/Cancelo this week

    TIA

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Not the week, captain Salah.

      I would trade Semedo, personally, if you are looking to "make some ground"

    2. 1984 TC
      • 1 Year

      1. Play safe this week. If Salah goes off you could plummet from the castle turrets.
      2. You've held him a while now. Just hold? But Dias a great option.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        yes, have held James to avoid a hit and had decent backup
        Dias is my preferred option and would prefer to move Semedo obviously
        Will see how news pans out in a day or 2

    bit more activity on here now, good to see

      Never confuse activity with achievement. Tis a general remark.

    The likes of James and Bamford play last games for England right? Why still flagged?

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years

      no.

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder

        owh sorry maybe i watch old highlight
        Thank you

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years

          although Bamford could have missed selection on form rather than injury, not sure.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            although having recently not played I would suggest injury. whether he would have been selected, a different topic.

    Likelihood of Trent and Jota both being out? May have to take a -4 if so, with Jota or Dennis making way.

    Sanchez
    TAA*, Duffy, Livramento, Cancelo
    Salah, Jota*, Gray, Benrahma
    Ronaldo, Antonio

      Liverpool have atletico midweek and then manchester united so I wouldn't be surprised if they take a precautionary stance.
      Wait until further news.

      1. Bleh
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Very true. Can see TAA being rested if I’m honest and Jota making a cameo.

  21. Gabbiadini
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo | Rüdiger | Duffy
    Salah | Raphinha | Sarr | Gray
    Ronaldo | Lukaku | Jiménez

    Steele | Livramento | B Williams | Allan

    Projection trades,

    a)
    B Williams, Sarr & Gray
    to
    TAA, Mbuemo & Brownhill

    b)
    B Williams, Jiménez & Allan
    to
    TAA, Mbeumo & K Davis

    Thoughts?

    1. Bleh
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      B of those but wait for TAA fitness news.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        "Projection trades",
        I wouldn't be trading TAA in until gw10.

    I am intrigued to see Chilwell in so many drafts, is he really nailed now or more nailed than others ? 🙂

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      not with alonso, no.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years

      Loosely blutacked I'd say.

    3. Tambling5
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      They'll swap about depending on form and fixtures. Who plays in League Cup and Champions League and World Club Champs versus the odd Prem League game, is anyone's guess!

  23. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    Foden + Mount
    Or
    Son + Luiz?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Latter

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      a has the greater upside although b would be considered safer, take your pick.

    What do people think the implications of Ranieri will be on Watford and particularly Sarr,
    Personally, for what we know him as a coach and their upcoming fixtures I would foresee a very pragmatic style, thoughts?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Would expect he will try and make them more direct going forward. They won't survive if they don't score more goals. Whether they have the personnel is a different story

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks for your thoughts.
        My question is in reference to my dilemma of deciding to keep either Sarr/Gray over the next 2-3 weeks.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I'm keeping Sarr for the next two - primarily because I need to focus transfers on the defence. It's an opportunity to sit him on the bench while assessing any changes to his performance under Ranieri.
          The bigger picture, for me, is he's still got a sub-PL level squad to work with and I'm kind of expecting Ranieri's performance to be more akin to his job at Fulham. I don't expect to be keeping Sarr longer than I have to.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Yeh good points.
            To put it simply, I want Mbeumo and preferably before his rise. Who's a better option to keep for 2/3 weeks, Sarr/Gray before the other one (I keep) inevitable goes.

        2. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          I would keep Gray over Sarr depending on your team setup and who you're targeting.
          I'd like to move Sarr to Raphinha but won't be this week so holding this week and potentially vs Saints as well the following week. I'd want to see how Gray goes with DCL back whenever that is.

          1. Gabbiadini
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Yes, I have Raphinha.
            I don't even think given the fixtures I would field Sarr as I have good options with Duffy & Livramento's fixtures so it seems wise to trade to Mbeumo who has the better fixtures, on paper.

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 11 days ago

      in my opinion they will be a counter attacking team. So sarr with his pace is a good option. But the rest of the team is pretty bad, so not sure how the team will perform overall

      Got exactly the same issue. Could be a couple of hits come Friday. Just holding out for the team news later in the week
      You never know could all be ok and play .

    Hello all. Would really appreciate some advice here-
    On -4 atm but still have some dodgy picks for the GW ahead with injuries.
    Leaning towards WC to just make some necessary changes now to my overall squad.

    1. WC and just get the squad sorted out properly with decent back up!
    2. Just leave it as it is and hope for the best this GW.

    Sanchez.
    Alonso, Rudiger, Cancelo, TAA.
    Salah, Raphinha, Gray.
    Jimenez, Anto, Lukaku.
    Bachmann, Benrahma, Bissouma, Tsimikas.
    0.2m ITB, -4 taken already.

    Is Mount a no go? Tuchel has said that Lukaku has missed him. But so many options ( Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic, ) for one spot

    1. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      With the "easier" fixtures I would expect rotation in the PL.

    2. maglia rosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I thought it a little odd that Tuchel would name check Mount as having the best on field understanding with Lukaku within the squad and then still bench him after his return from fitness. Some bias here as i'm a Mount owner but i do see Mount coming back into the Chelsea midfield as it's pretty clear to me that they are missing some creativity to supply Lukaku, If i can see that surely Tuchel can too. Dunno maybe Ruth who i think is a Blue's fan would be able to give a more informed opinion.

      1. Tambling5
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Chelsea have a schedule which is two games a week through till Christmas, with possibility of World Club Champs being shoe-horned in somehow in December as well! Tuchel was responding to press questions about him resting Mount for a couple of games, a rest precipitated by him appearing jaded. His comments were probably aimed at preventing a press non-story about him being ' out- of -favour'. Pulisic allegedly back in training too. Chelsea need to win both their Malmo matches in next fortnight too after a Juve defeat. So he might still miss occasional FPL games imo. Hope this helps!

    Feel like my WC is very template. Any feedback much appreciate. Thanks

    Ramsdale (Foster)
    TAA Dias James (White, Livramento)
    Salah Foden Raphinha Saka (Sissoko)

    1. Gabbiadini

      Hard to comment as there are a few players in this who are doubts for the weekend.
      Depending on team news you could be looking at a different team given a WC has unlimited flexibility.
