James, Mount and Alonso benched as Lukaku leads the Chelsea line again

Relatively few Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers will have escaped some rotation pain on Saturday and the teamsheet bombshells continue at Brentford this evening.

Chelsea make the short journey across west London to meet their neighbours in the 5.30pm BST kick-off.

Taking inspiration from Pep Guardiola’s starting XI selections earlier in the day, Thomas Tuchel has thrown a few curveballs our way.

Malang Sarr‘s debut wouldn’t have been predicted by many and the effect of his inclusion at centre-half means that Cesar Azpilicueta once again lines up at right wing-back, so the fit-again Reece James has to be content with a seat on the bench.

Marcos Alonso and Mason Mount will be alongside the defender, while Callum Hudson-Odoi drops to the bench, Antonio Rudiger misses out with a back problem and Thiago Silva isn’t involved following his late return from World Cup qualifier duty in South America.

Andreas Christensen and N’Golo Kante return to the starting XI.

It’s a relatively serene picture with regards to the Brentford team news, as Thomas Frank has made only one change to the side that started the win at West Ham. It’s an enforced one, too, with Mathias Jensen coming in for the injured Shandon Baptiste.

Kristoffer Ajer is only among the substitutes.

GAMEWEEK 8 LINE-UPS

    I don't watch Man Utd. Is it Ronaldo that's bad. Or, the team generally? Has he made it worse, trying to accommodate him? Sounded like they were better with Cavani.

      If I had to take a wild stab in the dark, I suspect Ronaldo doesnt think Ole is good enuf, and its probably obvious Ronaldo doesnt have faith in him

        Oh, it was never going to go well for Ole. He isn't good enough. And Ron won't be shy about his attitude towards him.

        But, is it Ronaldo that's bad. Or, the team generally? Has he made it worse, trying to accommodate him? Sounded like they were better with Cavani.

          Ronaldo is such a big character, players are going to respect him more than Ole. As u said, if Ronaldo isnt happy, he isnt going to hide it and we have already seen glimpses of that, like when he went straight down the tunnel vs Everton. That attitude and opinion will rub off on other players
          Ole is just out his depth, Ole was never meant to be permanent, they just decided to stick with him after he showed some potential. But he isnt a proven Manager and its a big ask for him to win the PL or any other major trophy

          I agree with Cavani things seemed betetr, probably because Cavani doesnt have such a big ego.
          Sounds like im totally blaming this on Ronaldo, but the issue is Ole and peoples lack of faith in him.

            You are right though, Man U didnt sign Ronalod because he fits their system, they signed him because he was available. And as such Man U is a bit of a mess, you got VDB scartching his ass on the bench, then musical chairs between Greenwood, Rashford, Sancho, Lingard, Martial, Cavani...

            They have no vision, they are just buying square pegs and trying to fit them into circle holes. They have been doing this for quite a while now, probably going back to Alexis signing for them or even before that. Who ever is in charge of transfers at Man U is basically playing Fifia with an unlimited transfer budget

              There was also the marketing/merchandise/global club branding element behind why they went for him

              Yeah. Seemed like they were on the up, with an exciting future with all the young attacking talent, being brought on with Cavani.

              Then panicked and got Ronaldo in (presumably just to stop the City move).

              1. have you seen cyan

                Sun, yea good point, the board probably had the ultimate say.

                TBH if Ronaldo is available, they yes they should sign him. But offload Martial and Lingard or something

    2. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The team generally is clueless in attack. Slow, sluggish predictable and ronaldo is old too

      1. thegaffer82
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Ronaldo too old. Come off it.
        The guy is a physical specimen in better shape than many 20-odd year olds. He still has a really good burst of pace, and his footballing intelligence is still fantastic.
        It’s the team and tactics (or lack of I should say) that’s crap.

        Imagine Ronaldo playing for City. He’d score a bucketload without a doubt

        1. DARE TO BISCAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Ron would've been a short-term, more whiney Hazza Kane for City. Would've scored loads. Not sure how Pep would get on with him, though.

        2. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          No, he would have been told to work his socks off by Pep and he cant do that anymore. When he plays in a team with wingers that also are bad defenders, and no mobility and tempo in midfield they get easily overturned. Tielemans is Pogba but he also puts his sock in into a dogfight. If you put ndidi and Tielemans in for pogba and matic and replace Ronaldo with Vardy they would be much better as a team. Ronaldo is still good but in todays football you need your striker to be the first defender also, just look at Firmino, Jota, Salah and Mane, all very good in defensive areas too.

          1. DARE TO BISCAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 1 day ago

            I agree with this. Think the game's moved on from having a superstar player that doesn't do their share of off the ball work.

    3. Gunneryank
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      A bit of both. Ron has thrown off the bit of chemistry they had right at the start of the season, when they looked more functional with Greenwood up top. Those two specifically don't play well together, they don't look to pass to each other and the team's link up play suffers.

      1. DARE TO BISCAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Was that just Leeds being a mess though?

        1. Gunneryank
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 1 day ago

          No doubt, I just thought they looked better in attack before Ron showed up.

      2. Pep bites Kun
        • 5 Years

        Bounce - then good management?

    4. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      I don’t think Utd are piss poor as a team & their manager is also not good enough

      1. PartyTime
        • 1 Year

        “I think”

        Wait. You do, or you don't think? What?

          Hah. You'd already corrected

            • 1 Year

            I think they are piss poor

              Does seem that a good manager would do a lot better with them. With Ole, its seems like everyone agrees he's a bad manager. But, a nice chap. So, they'll let him off the hook & keep buying players in, until the squad is so stacked, even he can get results.

    Chelsea are so defensive from the start of the season yet pro pundit lateriser choose both lukaku and werner. Chelsea good fixtures are trap. They Will just beat norwich 1-0 with malang sarr screamer

  4. wulfrunian

    Mbeumo or Saka?

    1. DARE TO BISCAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Sak

    2. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Mbeumo. 5.5 OOP midfielder, playing for a team who goes for it in every match with a good upcoming fixture run.

    3. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Had Mbuemo at the start, can’t hit a barn door.

      Saka

    4. wulfrunian
      • 5 Years

      cheers both

  5. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Thinking of replacing Sanchez for next couple of weeks (has City + Liverpool), should I do it or just accept what will come and use the FT elsewhere? His fixtures are fine after that for a bit so I might be going back. I can move to Mendy now (which I'd probably keep for 3 weeks if I was doing it), just I know a lot of people think using transfers on keepers is a waste here and I'm trying to be smarter about using FTs this season. But Mendy could easily outscore Sanchez by 10-12pts over 2 weeks

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

      If you Don't have any other issues why not

    2. Le Bluff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Do you not have any other fires to put out? A goalkeeper transfer is a luxury transfer at the best of times, let alone on Sanchez who is probably the best value GK in the game.

      1. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        luxury transfer completed then ,scmeichel to mendy done,leicester are crap defensively ,tuchel played 8 defenders today vs brentford ,pretty much nailed on 6 points every week...

      2. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 1 day ago

        I'm pretty OK, for now at least. Only other issues I have really are getting rid of Semedo but my other 12 outfield players all are playing currently

        1. Fish up a tree
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 1 day ago

          I think Ederson is better pick than Mendy if you’re going do this
          Chelsea could easily have let 3-4 today & City just don’t even give chances away

    3. have you seen cyan
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      I would just stick with Sanchez, he has served you well. Being too smart rarely pays in fantasy, I think someone like Pope can attest to that

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 23 hours ago

        Hmmm good point. The possibility of carrying over another FT into next week would be nice too in case I need it or want a mini WC of sorts.

  6. Le Bluff
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Best midfield if you were looking to wildcard soon?

    Salah, Raph, Mbeumo and a 4.5 feels like they pick themselves. Struggling on that spot, irregardless of budget.

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

      I got Gallagher and Gilmour. Team below.

    2. BOATIES FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Foden

    3. thegaffer82
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Salah - Foden - Mbuemo - Raph - 4.5

      That would be mine I think

    4. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      everton m/f

    5. Fish up a tree
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Bailey or Saka

  7. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Transfer made. Set for next week.

      What was your transfer?

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

        Had Mendy as my bench fodder. Upgraded to Mbeumo.

        1. DARE TO BISCAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Still happy with Ron7?

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

            No. But have 3 red flags on the bench. And felt that's an immediate concern,

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      You do realise there are midweek CL fixtures?

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

        Yes i do. But two playing bench + Gilmour should be ok to cover injuries. I upgraded a non player to someone who plays.

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Looks super solid. Getting in Mbeumo for Mendy makes sense to do and forget about it. Plenty of bench cover in case of disaster.

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

        Exactly why I went for an early transfer. The bench has two players who should feature.

    4. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Risky as heck!

        That team or the early transfer?

    Livramento has a good fixture so I don't mind him playing. Although I expect Jota benched, which is a shame vs. that United side 😛

      Its even worse that they won in the end, I own Semedo, Marcal and Hwang. All point dodgers 🙁

        Good sigh they’re scoring at least I guess

    2. Rupert The Horse

      But which genuine assets did well?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON

        Saiss and Coady I guess

        Thanks guys if I do twist Raphina currently looks the best option

    Didn't see the chelsea game, should kaku have been given the assist?

    1. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      No

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      No.

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope

    74 (-8) ( so 66)

    With Antonio and Gray to play and up to 34k tonight!

    I'd say Semedo, Sarr and Ronaldo
    To
    Taa Foden and Jimenez probably paid off minus Jimmy!

    A happy weekend to you all!

    1 FT. 0 itb.

    Options are:

    Ronaldo to Vardy (which allows Scarlett to Toney for a hit, or defensive improvements later on).

    Sarr to Mbeumo.

    Upgrading my miserable forward line seem very attractive, even for the hit, as I'd have 3 nailed strikers all actually playing for attacking teams.

    Something to think about.

    Those unfortunate to hold Alonso and James……..do you hold and pray?

    1. Sun Jihai

      Whoever starts midweek should give a clue maybe

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        If Chilwell starts does that mean Alonso get Norwich?

  21. PartyTime

    How can Norwich keep a clean sheet

    1. PartyTime
      • 1 Year

      Back to back cleansheets for that matter

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        They were the fixtures where they’d get them. Great run of fixtures.

        IDK

        I rarely follow the Championship if im honest, but I do wonder how terrible the quality if when Norwich get promoted

        1. PartyTime
          • 1 Year
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah...

      Two on the spin now!

  22. cigan

    How is this for a WC?

    Sanchez
    Trent Rudiger Dias White Livra
    Salah Foden Raphinha Doucoure Mbeumo
    Vardy Antonio ASM

  23. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON

    Why’s everyone getting Mbuemo?
    Had him for the first 3 weeks or so and he did nothing

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      BUR NOR NEW in the next 4.

      5.5 OOP, hits the woodwork - what else do you need for a 5.5 ?

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Didn’t see this game but I’m guessing he looked dangerous tonight? Hit the bar I think

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      A lot of reasons. Hit the wood 6 times this season and honestly, Brentford look amazing, as does he.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Sounds like I should buy him again so he goes back to being anonymous

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          No no, he’ll do well for you as I’m saying so. Go for it.

    4. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Same. I don’t think he’s a bad pick tho but would rather scout for now until he stops playing the crossbar challenge

  24. Kryptonite666
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 1 day ago

    Have exact money for

    Ronaldo + Perica + Sarr to Vardy + Werner + Mbeumo for -4. Will have to be done tonight.

    Yes/ No?

    1. cigan
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      don't get Werner lol

      1. DickFranDyke
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Was better than Lukaku today and last GW. lolz

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Neigh

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 1 day ago

        Whom would you get instead?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 1 day ago

          Well first I’d wait for a few days. Then see if someone like Bamford is fit.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      No
      Leicester and Chelsea play midweek
      Not convinced on Werner, the value is in Chelsea defence not attack

  25. No Kane No Gain

    10 months, 1 day ago

    Tuchel saying lukaku looked tired today. If he’s benched midweek agains Malmo. He’ll be (C) for sure this week. Hopefully eases the pain of the last few gameweek Ed!

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      I’ve earmarked the Norwich game for him as cap for a while, but not any more. Has to be Salah.

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

        Agree with Rupert. Regretting Lukaku to be honest … don’t think he can be trusted and Salah form is superb, so Mo gets the C for me next week.

    2. syke63

      Hope a rest will do. Watched him vs France and thought he was great so I think Tuchel's tactics are the problem.

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

        I think many of us were tricked by his debut and upcoming sexy fixtures. The way Chelsea play, I don’t think their target man is going to splash points all over the shop … but easy mistake to make … but one I do regret …

    Early thoughts here? Cheers

    A. Ronaldo and Williams to Vardy and Chillwell (need to make 0.1 for TAA)
    B. Ronaldo and Williams to DCL and Chilwell/TAA
    C. Something else

    Sanchez
    Cancelo Rudiger Duffy
    Salah Raphina Benrahma Gray
    Ronaldo Lukaku Antonio

    Steele Livramento McArthur Williams

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      A

    2. Gunneryank
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Tough. Hard to pick Chilly over Trent, but A seems fine.

  27. Burger

    Is Rudiger due back next game?

    1. Rupert The Horse

      Nobody can say.

          If it makes you feel better, I will guess: yes

      No

    1. Rupert The Horse

      Not me. Good thing is nothing can be done now anyway.

  30. Lexi2014

    CR7 dropping tonight?

    Swap to Lukaku makes sense right?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Highly likely and yes.

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 1 day ago

      Drop doesn’t matter if you got him in at 12.5m
      Even if you got him him at 12.6m, there’s no rush as Lukaku is cheaper than Ronaldo so no priced out risk
      Information > prices always
