      It could bite you.
      Havertz is a risk, based on hope. There are no stats to base anything on.

      Hmm. I’m at work and we are showing the game. Probably the only game I get to see. Thing is I have both my Arsenal assets benched. Hmm, maybe I should play one.

        I think Villa score, if that helps mate.

        Bailey, Ings and Watkins

        1. Nomar
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I have White on my bench for the same reason. Can see Villa scoring.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          • 1 Year
          1 month, 13 days ago

      Hello friends. Who to bench? Currently on White.

      White
      Jota
      Greenwood

    • Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Cap Salah or Vardy?

    • Cheeto__Bandito
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Whisper it softly...

      Toney has better odds to score than Vardy

    • FCSB
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Ramsdale
      TAA Cancelo James
      Salah(c) Foden Mbeumo Raphinha
      Vardy Antonio Jimenez

      Foster Livramento Brownhill Duffy

      0FT, 1.5 itb

      Is this good to go? Lineup OK?

      Even with the news it’s hard to play a defender over Jimenez…

      Thanks
