Why Jimenez was benched and Cash’s goal threat: FPL notes from Villa v Wolves

We continue our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 8 write-ups with analysis of Aston Villa v Wolverhampton Wanderers.

For a shorter summary of all of Saturday’s action, click here.

ASTON VILLA 2-3 WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

  • Goals: Danny Ings (£7.8m), John McGinn (£5.8m) | Romain Saiss (£5.0m), Conor Coady (£4.5m), Ruben Neves (£5.4m)
  • Assists: McGinn, Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) | Daniel Podence (£5.5m), Leander Dendoncker (£4.8m), Adama Traore (£6.0m)
  • Bonus: McGinn x3, Neves x2, Ings x1

HWANG DISAPPOINTS

Wolves came from two goals down to win at Villa Park on Saturday, in a remarkable finish which saw them score in the 80th, 85th and 95th minutes.

Set-up in a 3-4-2-1 formation, Bruno Lage’s side struggled for large parts, especially in the final third, but got the win thanks to goals from an unlikely trio: Romain Saiss (£5.0m), Conor Coady (£4.5m) and Ruben Neves (£5.4m).

With Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) arriving back late after playing three games during the international break with Mexico, in his absence, budget forward Hwang Hee-Chan (£5.6m) was tasked with leading the line in a false nine role. 

However, he was well below par, struggling to link up with his team-mates and ending the match with just a single effort on goal. He was also partly to blame for John McGinn’s (£5.8m) strike, after a poor pass which was intercepted.

“We used a false nine so not to give their strong defenders an easy man to mark. They continued to press at 2-0 and I tried to put men on them. That’s what we did. In corners or free-kicks, those situations can happen and we scored three goals. Every time I believe.

It’s easy for me to say now I made the right choice. It’s easy to say ‘I was right’ when you win. But you have to take decisions. The other players who start or come on, help the team to win three points.

We did three good performances in the first three games but did not get any points. The confidence came with hard work. The players are seeing what we are doing and with victories.” – Bruno Lage

Discussing his team selection, and specifically Jimenez, Lage also said:

“Raul is very important for us and the way we play. But also, the other players are important. I don’t want to take risks with top players.

Maybe I need to protect Saiss more because he played more time than Raul for his national team, but my concern is about the travel. The flight was too much time, he just arrived, he feels tired, he wants to play.

I put him to warm up and every time he was saying ‘I want to go inside (the team), I want to go inside’, but I preferred to go with Daniel.

I don’t want to take risks with him because we don’t have a big squad and I don’t want injuries because we don’t make the best decisions.”

Elsewhere, Adama Traore (£6.0m) bagged his first attacking return of the season via an assist, but again spurned a good opportunity to score, and remains one of the division’s biggest expected goal (xG) underperformers this term.

After losing their first three league games, Wolves are now eighth in the Premier League table, and are suddenly one of the form teams in the division.

Between Gameweeks 9 and 14, they also sit third on our season ticker for ease of attacking fixture difficulty, which suggests that Hwang can still offer value in the coming weeks. However, Jimenez remains the headline pick, and could be a nice replacement for those looking to move away from the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) and Michail Antonio (£8.1m).

ADVANCED CASH BAGS CLEAN SHEETS POINTS FOLLOWING EARLY WITHDRAWAL

For Aston Villa, it was a disappointing collapse on Saturday afternoon, and questions remain over their new 3-5-2 formation, which has been a bit hit and miss so far.

One glimmer of hope, however, have been the performances of Matty Cash (£5.1m). 

Since switching to a back-three set-up in Gameweek 4, the wing-back ranks top amongst all defenders for penalty area touches and joint-top for goals attempts and shots in the box. 

Having been withdrawn on 79 minutes against Wolves in Gameweek 8, he bagged a clean sheet, and as a result, is now up to 12th in the defender standings for total points.

However, Dean Smith revealed after the game that he picked up a dead leg in the loss.

John McGinn, meanwhile, bagged a goal and assist, and was on corner-taking duties for Villa, while Emiliano Martinez (£5.5m) and Douglas Luiz (£4.6m) were both named in the starting XI, despite featuring for Argentina and Brazil respectively in South America in the early hours of Friday morning.

Another Argentinian – Emiliano Buendia (£6.3m) – also put in a good shift. The playmaker was deployed behind Danny Ings (£7.8m) and Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) in an attacking midfield role, and thrived in the half-spaces, creating one big chance and registering a couple of shots on goal.

“I find it difficult to explain because it should have been a victory. We were comfortable and we didn’t see that coming. Three set-pieces have cost us three goals. You have to defend better when balls get put in the box in the last 10 minutes. There were frantic clearances so that was a disappointment today.

In the first half, I thought it was a bit of a chess game. I thought we were better but only had the one big chance and they had one through Adama Traore. In the second half, we spoke about the areas we wanted to play and we did. At 2-0, you can always give them a sniff and we did.

I never felt there was a momentum shift. There were a few second balls that we didn’t pick up. We defended the box quite well in open play but it was the set-pieces.

The actual free-kick for goal I have no complaints. That happens. It’s how they get to that… We had a throw-in which we gave away then Traore comes inside and we give a foul away.

It’s a painful defeat because it’s one we should have had. The performance was better than Tottenham but you have to defend the box better. It hurts because it’s a football match and I’m a football manager.” – Dean Smith


Aston Villa XI: Martinez, Konsa, Tuanzebe, Mings, Cash (Young 79), McGinn, Douglas Luiz (Nakamba 67), Targett, Buendia (Ramsey 74), Ings, Watkins

Wolves XI: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo, Neves, Moutinho (Silva 74), Marcal (Podence 74), Dendoncker, Traore, Hwang (Jimenez 88)

    Who to sell 1st

    Rudgier (Already have Azpilicueta)
    Armstrong

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Maddamotha
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      How long is Rudi out for?

    2. JBG
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Armstrong I would say, specially if you can afford Toney.

    3. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Depends what cover you have and what the replacements will be.

    4. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Surely wait until more info on rudi

  2. Surfeit of Lampteys
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Not fpl related but how come firmino's second goal v Watford wasn't offside then?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Both players were past the last defender and the ball was played backwards

      1. Surfeit of Lampteys
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Think you're thinking of his third goal. To me his second was blatantly offside. The motd commentator said Salah wasn't interfering but I mean clearly he was as cathcart tried to stop the initial ball from getting to him.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Because that rule is awful. The defender deliberately played the ball which made Salah's offside irrelevant because he wasn't interfering with the defender but clearly his run did influence the defender's decision to play the ball. Same thing happened with Mbappe vs Spain in the Nations League. That law needs to be changed.

      1. Surfeit of Lampteys
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Absolutely right it does. Dreadful rule if that's a legitimate goal.

    3. asquishypotato
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Salah did not intervene with play, despite the pass being blatantly for him.

      It’s a nonsense law but it’s the way the game is played. Difficult for the defender to make that split second decision and hope it’s offside.

      1. Surfeit of Lampteys
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah very true. Nonsense indeed. No way any team should get an advantage from offside run imo

  3. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Is it worth doing Ronaldo > Lukaku (c) -4?

    1. Stejson
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      If Lukaku scores one more goal than Ronaldo, then it's probably going to be worth it

    2. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I am thinking about Ronaldo >> Werner

      1. Riders of Yohan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        This is madness imo

  4. Solanke
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Bench order OK?

    Ramsdale
    TAA | chilwell | cancelo | Livra
    Salah | Foden | Raph | Mbuemo
    Antonio | Lukaku

    Foster | Smith Rowe | A Armstrong | Duffy

  5. SHOWSTOPPERRR
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Guys early days, still would like to get suggestions. 1ft

    A) shaw to cancelo free
    B) Ben to raph free
    C) A and B -4

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      A

  6. baines is god
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    any Newcastle fans, how nailed is Manquillo?

    Pretty important as I have Duffy, TAA and Manquillo but then two Norwich defenders who aren't playing right now!

    1. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      How on earth have you found yourself with 2 Norwich & a Newcastle defender? Genuinely curious.

      1. baines is god
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        god knows lol

        williams was starting at 4.0 so brought him in, then had to fit exactly a 3.9 in, and that Irish defender played for Norwich, got good reviews and everyone said he'd start so I brought him in, now neither are playing!

    2. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      He's not. And it's likely we will have a new manager soon so even less so.

  7. camarozz
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Suddenly my team isn't doing quiet as well as it was. Have 2fts and my WC
    Any help/advice would be appreciated as I'm kinda at a loss wat to do

    Sa

    TAA/Digne/Rudiger

    Salah/Raphina/Sarr/Benny

    Ings/Lukaku/Antonio

    (Foster/Livremenco/White/Gallagher)

    Digne/Sarr/Benny/Ings are ones I'm looking to ship.

    1. Firminoooo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Just Digne to Cancelo/Dias and Sarr to Mbuemo. No Need to WC. I played WC last GW and lost big time.

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I’d be tempted to give Sarr one more week. His stats are the best in the price bracket but depends if Watford remain as bad under ranieri.

      Digne to Cancelo 100% depending on how long rudi is out for

  8. M00N
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Anyone had it worse than Alonso, Barnes, Bissouma, Coufal, Raphina, and Rudiger all out this week?

    1. Firminoooo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Ouch. I had a last minute WC disaster (Son out rumours). Cost my team 27 points.

      1. M00N
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Annoyingly you can't get them points back. I'm guessing you have a plan to get Son back in.
        I did get 56 points so can't grumble too much. Its just those 3 clean sheets that would have been nice.

        1. Firminoooo
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          0.1 short of changing back Foden/Mahrez to Raphinha/Son

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Alonso, James, Raph, Jimmy, Jota & Gilmour. About the same I guess

  9. Scholes Out For Summer
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Obviously will wait until after Europa League, but already pretty settled on Ronaldo + Shaw --> Toney + Chilwell for free. Wanting to take hit to take out Sarr/Traore. With money no object, who would you go for the next while?

    KDB
    Son
    Raphinha

    Can get Mbeumo next week for free as well

  10. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Sanchez
    TAA Cancelo James
    Salah Saka Gray Raphinha
    Ronaldo Antonio Toney

    (4.0 Livramento Semedo Sissoko)
    1 FT & 1.5m

    Thoughts on this team?

    Ronaldo to Lukaku (c) for free?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Good team with cover for James. I would switch to Lukaku as has to start firing and fixtures too good to ignore

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yep, thats the move.

  11. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    For - 4 this could be my lineup this weekend )subject to what happens midweek) -cover in place for Alonso. What are thoughts? Good team or not. Bringing in Lukaku and Azpilicueta. WC still to play

    Sanchez
    TAA Azpilicueta Cancelo Alonso
    Salah Jota Raphinha Mbeumo
    Lukaku Antonio

    Foster Livramento Benrahma Scarlett

  12. GoonerByron
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Jimenez or Antonio out for Toney?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Antonio as Jiménez running into some good fixtures but might leave 1 more week

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Jimenez, if any

    3. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Not sure I'd lose either.

      All the Antonio out moves look like results based thinking to me rather than actually being based on his performances or West Ham's.

    4. Sean
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Not worth a transfer but Antonio of those two

  13. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Traore or Benrahma -> Saka?The logic move is to sell Traore but i think that Leeds away is a better fixture than Spurs at home.Also Benrahma's performance was really poor.Any thoughts?

    1. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Why Saka?

      1. wulfrunian
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Any suggestions up to 7.1?

        1. Bojack Horseman
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          My favourites under that price are the usual suspects: Mbuemo, Raphinha, Gray probably.

          I don’t mind Benrahma despite everyone moaning about him. Thought he was fine on Sunday.

          1. wulfrunian
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 15 days ago

            cheers

    2. Salahlulijah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Traore out! No guarantee he’ll even start next game. I feel much happier since I booted him out last week

  14. Malinwa
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Hi Legends, need some advice here:

    WC gtg ?

    Sanchez
    Cancelo - Christensen - TAA
    Salah - Son - Doucoure - Raph
    Toney - Vardy - Antonio

    Steele - White - Livramento - Brownhill

    1. vova
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Foster instead of Steele?

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Personally I’d go Steele as you get guaranteed back up. Foster isn’t nailed

    2. PompeyUpNorth!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Looks decent enough to me

    3. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Don’t like the doucoure pick but otherwise looks decent. Could you afford pinnock over White?

  15. sovietrockettes
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Broja...........could be the stuff of dreams

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Just like Dennis was after gw1

      If it’s to good to be true, it probably is

      Could be worth a gamble if you want to go there though

      1. sovietrockettes
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        I'm thinking Armstrong>Broja, Brownhill>Raphinha for a -4, exact change

    2. beetlejuice
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      You think Armstrong lost his place to Broja?

      1. sovietrockettes
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Hasenhuttl has just won his first match this season……if Broja is fit you can bet your bottom dollar he starts again

    3. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I think he’s looked good when I’ve seen him - would happily have him as 9th attacker - 8th too with solid bench.
      Those Southampton fixtures are sweeeet.

  16. Fpl Richie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    I was a silly sausage and bought Mahrez with a plan for Mount for the next 3. What's your play?

    Ramsdale
    James Dias Cancelo TAA
    Salah Mbuemo Mahrez*
    Toney Antonio Lukaku
    Foster ESR Livramento 'Hill of Brown'
    (1FT 0.2ITB)

    A. Continue with the Chelsea mid punt.
    B. Something else
    C. Save

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B. Zaha

      1. Fpl Richie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Well I didn't expect that

    2. Firminoooo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Mahrez(C) in for Son killed me.

      1. Fpl Richie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        You can probably tell, but it made me jump to Mahrez and upgrade a defender, so I feel you.

    3. Sean
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Would probably save with that team, if not then Mount and Raph are your two options, and i'd go Raph.

      1. Fpl Richie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yes, fair point. Actually Raphi for Norwich after that makes some sense.

        Allows for a hold in GW10 and a Son plan thereafter.

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Raph seems safe

  17. Vertigo
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Is there anyone here without Lukaku planning on NOT bringing him in for the next three?

    1. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      In two minds

      Chelsea attack has look really laboured and he doesn't seem to being used in his effective role. Norwich defence poor perhaps but I very much doubt it's the worst in the league.

      Will likely wait to see how Chelsea perform in CL. Son and Jiminez over Benrahma and Ron/Lukaku? Feels viable anyway.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes, I can only do it for -4 since I already made an early move

      The issue is even if I survive this week I still want him for the next 2

      It’s probably a move I’ll make (from cr7)

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Went Werner instead

    4. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Feel like i've got away with no owning him this last two weeks, so can't risk it any longer and will be making the CR>Rom switch this week.

    5. Bojack Horseman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I can see an argument against. Vardy being over 1.0 cheaper, despite poorer games, could be the final cash you need to get Son over a cheap mid.

      Personally I intend to play the percentages and get him in. Games are probably the best three on paper in the division.

  18. Camzy
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Best combo:

    A) Kane + Mbeumo
    B) Mane + Jimenez
    C) Vardy + Raphinha

    I'm looking to dump Ronaldo this week and the forward I get will decide the mid upgrade I can afford.

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      C for now

    2. vova
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I like C

    3. Salahlulijah
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Assume you have Salah so C for me. Good run of fixtures coming up too

    4. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I have C

    5. TKC07
      • 2 Years

      C popular choice..

    6. pingissimus
      • 2 Years

      I have C

      Actually I can see why there's a dilemma - Mane is a rude differential, Kane looks ready to do something nasty (not fussed about Jimenez myself). Across two players C looks maybe best but it's hard.

      Even Vardy and Mbuemo with cash left over isn't bad.

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years

        I could go Toney + Mane as well. Vardy + Mbeumo and keep the cash is also an option that I like tbf.

          Either of those suits you imo. Great picks, slightly edgier.

    8. Holmes

      C is probably the sensible pick, A could be a nice explosive differential.

    9. RogDog_jimmy

      Toney + Mané for me.

    Seem to have given myself a benching headache this week! Who to leave out? Or wildcard to bring back Trent or get Son..? Ronaldo>Lukaku booked in as my one FT.

    Sanchez
    Rudiger Dias White
    Salah Greenwod Rapha Benrahma Sarr
    Ronaldo*(c) Antonio Toney

    Shaw

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Shaw looks alright on bench, just make sure to put him on 3rd spot

  20. TKC07
    • 2 Years

    4 starts for Bachmann and 4 starts for Foster.
    Who would be starting next week on goal?

    In Championship last season, both had 23 starts each....!!!

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Halftime for each 😉

  21. Babit1967

    Got Toney and Mbeumo in my team now, great value and great fixtures

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      juts dont panic if they blank in next couple of games

    2. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Held long that could be a great play imo.

      The fixture run lasts around 10 weeks. Avoid transfers and allow them to blank and that looks like a possible winner.

      Yeah I rate these picks, will be tempted to copy you next week

  22. Gazza2000

    Would you bench ESR or Dias?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Toss coin

    2. sovietrockettes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      see how ESR plays today and Dias in CL

  23. beetlejuice

    You reckon Armstrong dropped to bench or was it injury/fatigue related?

    1. Sean
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Seems to have been dropped which is giving me a massive headache as no easy way to ship him out, will probably have to sit with him this week and see anyway.

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        he's an easy swap to Toney next week, seems a good exit route

    2. Ronnies
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      More playing shite related!

    3. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      I think just dropped, which is annoying as I got him on my WC. I think he will still get some minutes going forward but when Che Adams is back there will potentially be 3 (or 4 if you count Redmond) forwards sharing the minutes around.

    4. Firminoooo
      • 5 Years

      Shocked that I dodged the Armstrong bullet on WC…but Hwang, James and Mahrez(C) killed me.

  24. Feanor
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Whenever I get Vardy in my team he does nothing, so his owners can thank for me for sticking with Ronaldo and Lukaku while he bags goals after goal.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Me too. Never remember him doing anything when I have owned.

  25. rnrd

    On a WC
    A- Foden / Hwang
    B- ESR / Jimenez

    1. sovietrockettes
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B of those

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B

    3. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      B. A isn’t worth the stress of rotation

  26. MountainBeach

    Foster away to Everton instead of Sanchez at home to City, right?

    1. Fpl Richie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Yes

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      The way Watford looked… I’m not too sure. May get a few more saves though against rondon

      1. MountainBeach
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Yeah I’m not expecting much from Foster. With Sanchez…it’s City after all

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Too early to say

      1. MountainBeach
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 15 days ago

        Could you elaborate. Feel like City scoring is inevitable.

    4. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Neither, Sanchez to Mendy -4 for me

  27. DavidBadWillie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 15 days ago

    Hwang on a minute why are people selling Hwang??

    1. Fpl Richie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Team name sorted for next season now

    2. Riders of Yohan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 15 days ago

      Personally no idea if you just brought him in. Was always going to play better with jimi

  28. Riders of Yohan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Thoughts on this potential WC?

    Sanchez
    TAA, Chilwell, Cancelo
    Salah, Raphinha, Gallagher, Sarr, mbeumo
    Kane, Vardy

    Steele. Pinnock, Livra, 4.4m

  29. Zilla
