International Football

The minutes played by FPL players over the November international break

The final international break of 2021 reached its conclusion in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Over 200 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) assets were in action for their countries over the last week and there will be inevitable repercussions in Gameweek 12, given the impact on starting XIs immediately after the September and October international breaks.

Our Team News tab and our Friday press conference round-up (in both article and video form) will cover everything on the fitness front but it is fatigue we’re focusing more on in this article as we look at how many minutes each FPL asset clocked up while on international duty.

How much ‘tiredness’ will be a factor in Gameweek 12 is open to debate, as the triple-headers of earlier international breaks are now mostly a thing of the past and juggling two games in a week comes second nature to many Premier League players. With 10 Gameweeks now to come in the space of 40 days, however, any national team game-time going into this period may come into top-flight managers’ medium-term thinking when weighing up whether or not a player needs a breather.

As well as on-field exertions, long-haul flights back from further afield may be a consideration ahead of the weekend – although much less so than in October, when South American nations were in action on the Friday morning before Gameweek 8.

Indeed, Brazil and Argentina were instead facing off late on Tuesday evening this time, given the Premier League representatives in question additional days to make their way back to the UK and recuperate.

Raul Jimenez (£7.7m) was the last notable FPL name in action, representing Mexico in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

MOST MINUTES PLAYED OVER THE NOVEMBER INTERNATIONAL BREAK

A trio of academy products – Carney Chukwuemeka, Dane Scarlett and Aaron Ramsey – were the only ‘active’ FPL assets who logged more than three hours of pitch-time, thanks to England under-19s having three fixtures over the last week.

Onto more significant names and there were 42 players who lasted 180 minutes across their respective nations’ matches, including Shane Duffy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jimenez, Ismaila Sarr, Aymeric Laporte and Andreas Christensen.

Son Heung-min, Kevin De Bruyne and Hwang Hee-chan were only a little further back on 178, 173 and 172 minutes respectively.

Happily, many of the most popular Fantasy picks had a relatively easy ride. Of the 15 highest-owned assets in FPL, only Duffy and Ronaldo started more than one game for their homeland in the November international window.

CLUB-BY-CLUB ROUND-UP

The team-by-team guide below breaks down the minutes that each player has played per international match over the last week or so, with a total given at the end.

The players listed exclude those who withdrew from their national team squads without kicking a ball but include those who played at least one match before picking up an injury or illness or dropped out for personal reasons. The latter group of players are marked with an asterisk.

As mentioned earlier, we’ll have further details on any lingering fitness concerns in our pre-Gameweek 12 team news round-up on Friday.

    A) Havertz to Son (keep Vardy for his good run after Chelsea)
    B) Vardy and Havertz to Kane and Foden -4

    if going to get rid of Vardy, now feels like the time (going to be difficult before his next games).

    1. Bucket Man

      A

    2. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years

      I like B more because you can Jota instead of Foden

      1. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah B has the option of Jota. Foden is such a difficult player to take a hit for because of the fear of rotation. Pep has a habit of making you think a player is nailed...

        1. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 17 hours ago

          Agreed..if I need to bring in one mid in that price range would prefer Jota over Foden right now

            8 days, 17 hours ago

            CL midweek too so risk of rotation probably would put me off a hit for Foden. Considering him myself though

    Morning all, today's pressers for you here (GMT):

    Gerrard - 11am
    Hasenhuttl - 11am
    Ranieri - 1pm
    Dyche - 1.15pm

    Is this a benching headache or am I just overthinking this...bench one-

    A livra
    B Jimi
    C Raph

    1. Hot Toddy
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 17 hours ago

      a

  4. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 17 hours ago

    Which one would you chose for next few GWs?

    1. TAA, Gallagher, Hwang in 442, Mbeumo and Livra on bench
    2. TAA, Gallagher, Toney in 442, Mbeumo and Duffy on bench
    3. Reguilon, Jota, Gallagher in 451, Toney and Livra on bench
    4. Jota, BSilva, Toney in 352, Livra and Duffy on bench

    Should say that 1-3 would involve a hit while 4 would be for free.

    1. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 17 hours ago

      As much as I would like to have Taa, option 3 could work out really well

      1. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah, TAA would be great but trying to take it easy so also 4 is tempting with not hit and both Pool and City mids

        1. lilmessipran
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 17 hours ago

          It is, but as good as Bilva has been I expect even him to get rotated with the fixture congestion..hence leaning towards C slightly

          1. Atimis
            • 5 Years
            8 days, 17 hours ago

            I will be making the moves before GW13 so yet have GW12 to monitor the ones above

    Morning all. GTG or should I start ESR?

      G2G, but if you want to start ESR it would be for Christensen for me

      1. tbos83
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Thanks. I'm thinking he's most likely to be benched so ESR may well come in anyway

  6. Hansel

    1. lilmessipran

    Lots benching mbeumo and even Raph for livramento, what happened to always starting the attacker ?

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 17 hours ago

      Livramento happened.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 17 hours ago

        Guaranteed he concede and get a YC this week with all his hype on here

        Raph or mbeumo will haul as well to put salt into our wounds

        1. No Professionals
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 16 hours ago

          yeah maybe. that's FF.

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 17 hours ago

      Livra plays Norwich, and i am at least tempted by that, and since my team is what it is i want to play him over sine og the others, actually my bench headache is jimi or Raph. Livra was always going to play. You play the one you think will get most points

    3. teneighty
      • 6 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm starting all three of them. Perhaps I just have a bad team...

  10. Fabreghastly

    2. basilfawlty

      I'd go for Wilson, good fixtures, critical few games for Newcastle, manager bounce etc

    3. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Either Wilson or Ings, Bis -> Jota, Hwang

          no, he's just my cheap defender who could blank anyway, no pressure.

    Play mbembo and toney or bench one for livra?

    Think the double up could be nice this week with so many losing faith (but they are losing faith for good reason tbf)

    1. golfboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      Lost faith and ditched them. Livra and one of them for me

    1. Champione

      Play Antonio over Gallagher

  16. Shark Team
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 16 hours ago

    How bad can Son(C) go?
    (In comparison to Salah(C))

    1. golfboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm tempted but feels punty doesn't it. Salah the safe pick with the masses

      1. Shark Team
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Don't you think that Arsenal looks good though? I mean I can see them probably conceding no more than 2 goals. Spurs have to win with a convincing performance I think this is why I'm gonna back Son cause I believe a lot in new manager bounce especially when it's Conte

        1. golfboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 16 hours ago

          That's a decent argument for it. Go with your gut!

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      He could get a red card and Salah could get a hat-trick

    3. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      Auba had an assist (and a goal? I don't remember that) ruled out and missed a penalty vs Watford

      Swinging the right way, that could have been 10+ points vs Salah's 5. He got -1

      Another recent example is Havertz (too soon?), who has then outscored Salah in the next two games after his disastrous blank as some people's differential cap

      The variance in this game is brutal. I'm happy to own the 14 other players around Salah C for now

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Yup - it's a 10 player game right now without the wild swings of variance the captaincy provides

      2. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Worst day of the season (so far) for me.

    4. Fabreghastly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      People are writing off Arsenal's chances. Unbeaten in 10, is it?, very good defence. Can't see Salah having a monster day. But, Conte's Spurs are a work in progress. Perhaps not the best punt

    5. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      Would rather see Son's form improve before captaining him over Salah. I have him VC though, just ahead of Wilson.

  18. Van der Faart
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    2FT, considering a hit for a third

    2 decided; Gray and Grealish to Jota and Gallagher

    A) Dias to James
    B) Dias to Chilwell
    C) Keep Dias

    Already have Rudiger and 0.1 short of Dias to Cancelo

    1. golfboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      Wouldn't take a hit for a defender.

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Usually I wouldn't either.

        1. golfboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 days, 16 hours ago

          If Chelsea were playing someone else I might but can see Leicester scoring

      2. Fabreghastly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        James isn't a defender

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ramsdale/Guaita still... Mendy will miss games with AFCON and Ederson takes an outfield City spot

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Livra

    2. Rohirrims

    Did Fantasy Football back in the 90s have captaincy? Remember when you had to post off any transfers you wished to make. I played The Times newspaper fantasy and think you only got 20 transfers each season and each one would cost you a postage stamp (about 25p back then).

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      I mean, it can't have done unless you set it at the start of the season as changes weren't particularly active then.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm not that old 😛

      I was playing FPL though back before history was saved. I was the ultimate casual and quit after like 4 weeks usually.

  24. Echoes

    Start one:

    A: Raphinha
    B: Mbeumo(have Toney)

    Captain:

    1: Son
    2: Foden

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year

      *no Salah cause I don't like to captain a guy playing against Arsenal is all

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Might even bench him. Or not 😛

      2. Rohirrims
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 days, 16 hours ago

        Raphinha and Foden.

        Also buy a big sofa.

    2. premierleaguesgreatestevert…

  25. premierleaguesgreatestevert…

    Which one and with which defender?

    A) TAA/Cancelo/Chilwell/James-Son-Wilson-Toney (-4)
    B)TAA/Cancelo/Chilwell/James-Saka-Kane-Toney
    C)Chilwell/James-Son-Vardy-Hwang

        Interesting thanks. This was my initial plan at start of ib

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 16 hours ago

          I picked the one without Toney!

          1. premierleaguesgreatestevert…
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 16 hours ago

            Ha fair enough. I like A the most, feel Son and Wilson can more than make up the -4 plus I get to get one of the defenders mentioned which I am somehow without any of them right now

  26. fusen
    • 9 Years
    8 days, 16 hours ago

    Those price rises were very annoying as none of the players involved (Son, Wilson) that people wanted to buy actually have a manager press conference today.

    So almost no point in not buying them last night, doh!

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 16 hours ago

      No teams have press conferences today.

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years

          Jesus. Apologies Fusen. Why are they so early?

            There are always pressers on Thursdays nowadays. Most of them are Friday though.

            1. GreennRed
              • 10 Years

              Cheers Camzy. Will keep an eye for them.

    2. Arteta

      I was just thinking that. Already "lost" 0.1 and Son's price will probably rise tonight as well.

      Can you afford Kane & Wilson for Vardy & Jimmy?

    Stupid Members Area Question. Does chances conceded from right flank mean the defending team's right back, ie lots of chances conceded here would benefit a left-side attacker facing that team? Or is it the other way round? Cheers!

    1. Flowsick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Chances conceded is from defensive team's perspective.
