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.

      Same dilemma, I am playing Livramento.

      Disclaimer: I had left 38 points on bench over the last 3 weeks.

    The conventional wisdom on transfers during international breaks has absolutely swung from one extreme to the other. Last season you had lots of managers making transfers the first day of IBs. One famous manager did Davis to Brewster to beat a price drop.

    Now people are afraid to act even after all the international fixtures are done. Even if they have a deep bench that would easily cover for a late-breaking injury.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years

      I transferred the moment I could after last GW. But twas a rage trade! The most satisfying trade there is.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        I did the same, on Saturday. Not rage - it was to replace Sanchez as I had no spare change.

      2. FCSB

        who did you rage upon sir

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          Christensen/Cash to TAA/Cancelo

    2. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      One of the rare occasions where I used my 2fts on a Saturday so as not to get priced out..As you said, a deep bench can more than cover for a injury or two

  3. klopptimusprime
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Looking to burn a transfer but don't know who?

    Only single moves I can think of are

    a) Sanchez to Guaita
    b) Toney to 4.5-5m FWD (Mbeumo to Jota or bring in Kane/Son next GW without a hit)

    Foster
    TAA | Dias | Cancelo | James
    Salah | Foden | Mbeumo
    Vardy | Antonio | Toney

    Sanchez | Livra | Raph | Brownhill, 2FT, 0.4 ITB

    Any suggestions?

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Either could be good. Guaita has 8 points more than Sanchez despite much worse fixtures to date, so I think he should solidly outscore Sanchez over the season.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      A for me.

    3. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Sanchez to Guaita or Mbuemo to Gallagher

    4. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      a

  4. BIG TONES
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    I know 100k isn't too bad of a rank, but I'm sort of stagnating in that area and want to try get up closer to the top.

    So I think it's going to be Kane (c). Anyone else?

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      I just got Kane but not captaining.

      1. BIG TONES
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Salah (c)?

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          yes

    2. FCSB
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      be patient Tony

        This is just a game afterall. The entire universe(including myself) will captain Salah, so if Kane haul and Salah somehow blank(touchwood) you'll shoot up the rank like crazy. Have a little fun and go with your gut.

    3. nxh84
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      There’s no need for you to captain Kane, as he is already a differential that will help you gain rank if he hauls. Just stick to Salah(c) to prevent any drastic drops if Salah hauls.

      I am also considering Kane for the differential.

      Comments on his extremely poor underlying stats in the Premier League? 259.6 minutes per xGI, 39 touches in penalty area.

      Well, he scored 7 goals in the international break against Albania and San Marino. Hope that was needed for him to get back the confidence.

      1. nxh84
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Regarding Kane at Tottenham, its not a confidence issue. It’s his sulking and mentality. If he is bent on leaving, his poor form may continue.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          Conte's arrival has put Kane on my radar, but I'll not be rushing. I need to see Conte's Spurs actually scoring again first.
          I wonder if Romero's injury will impact them this GW. Maybe Conte needs more of a defence-first tactic to make up for the shortfall in quality. I personally don't think owning, let alone captaining Kane is a great idea for Gw12.

  5. MountainBeach

    Not expecting much from either but would you play Coady at home to West Ham or Williams at home to Soton lol

      Not much wiggle room there. Wolves are a better team than Norwich.

    2. nxh84
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Between the 2 i will play Williams because Southhampton is more likely to blank than West Ham.

  6. FCSB
    • 6 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    Play two:

    1. Jimenez (WHU)
    2. Raphinha (tot)
    3. Mbeumo (new)
    4. Livramento (nor)

    Thanks.

    Team setup:

    Chilwell James Cancelo
    Mbeumo Salah(c) Son Raphinha
    Toney Jimenez Antonio
    bench: foster, livramento, lowton, brownhill
    1FT, 5.1 ITB.

    Sitting at 8k right now, is it too risky to make the following moves? Really want to add a city mf and trent in but not sure where to prioritize. Double brentford must go sooner or later.

    1. Antonio --> Kane
    2. Toney, Chilwell --> Wilson, TAA
    3. Raphinha, Chilwell --> Foden, TAA
    4. Toney--> Wilson(priced out of Toney--> Kane)

    Thoughts much appreciated!

      Congrats on your rank!

      How about saving the FT? Then you can do 2/3 next week. Having 2 FT gives flexibility in terms of transfers.

    2. nxh84
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      That’s a nice rank! Save for this gw. Play livramento and bench one of mbeumo or toney.

  8. banskt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I have 2 FT and team looks good. Where can I improve with this team:

    Fernandez
    Alexander-Arnold, Rudiger, Cancelo, Livramento (Duffy)
    Salah, Havertz, Gallagher, Benrahma (Raphinha)
    Vardy, Antonio (Dennis)

    Considering
    1. Fernandez -> Ramsdale (but not liking this as I have probably missed the boat and Arsenal playing Liverpool away not the correct week)
    2. Havertz -> Jota / Bernardo Silva (this looks good on paper, but not really sure whether this is the week to transfer out Havertz)
    3. Havertz + Vardy -> Jota / Bernardo + Kane (the above transfer would also allow me to get in Kane before others, which could be a good differential if it clicks. Especially with those fixtures.)

    Any other suggestions? Am I missing any obvious upgrade opportunities?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      1. I feel Fernandez to Ramsdale/Guaita probably pays off in the long term
      2. Wait for team news given early kickoff. Is Lukaku back?
      3. Silva + Kane good differentials

      1. banskt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks for your reply.
        I think I will stick with Fernandez for sometime more. I will get Ramsdale once their fixture eases a little bit.
        I was thinking of the differentials since I am trailing. But, the underlying stats of Kane are so disappointing that I am having second thoughts.

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          I get it re Kane, but will only take one haul for people to start bringing him in (if it happens)

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      I like 3 to get Jota and Kane in

  9. arkom
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    A) Jimenez
    Or?
    B) Wilson

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Wilson

    2. Pops15
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Both seem like options for 3-4 gws before their fixtures turn. I would side with Wilson as he has an additional good gameweek compared to Jiminez

      Play Jimenez over Rudiger

    Hmmm ... cannot make my mind up. Have got 2 FT, which one?
    A. Vardy Jota (save 1 FT)
    B. Wilson Son
    C. Kane Gallagher

    1. BERGKOP
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      All three are good options. Depends on how much faith you have in Spurs.

      I'd preference B

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Is it though? Think both start for sure this gw and have similar points potential.

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      I can see 2 main routes.

      Havertz to Jota and save 2nd FT.
      Sarr to cheapie and Havertz to Son.

      If looking for some differential. Havertz, Sarr, Antonio to cheapie, Gallagher, Kane for -4

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Already have Gallagher mate. Two options I'm looking at are -

        a. havertz > jota and save ft
        b. vardy havertz > kane jota

        Can do sarr to esr next gw.

        Thoughts?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 4 days ago

          ah sorry, missed that.

          Vardy to Kane just feels sideways based on form (and pretty much same fixtures). can understand the temptation but I would probably hold Vardy for WAT game and move for Kane after that.

          1. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 4 days ago

            Cheers, so just havertz > jota then. Tbh not convinced by that move either for this gw

          2. Disturbed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 4 days ago

            How about just Sarr > esr this gw and reassess with 2 fts next gw? Can easily bench esr this gw

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 4 days ago

              That is also fine if you are willing to hold Havertz

      Not worried about Jimi's minutes? I am contemplating starting Livra over one of Raph/Jimi

      1. FCSB
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        I am concerned yeah… I think I’ll play Raph but Jimenez could make way for Mbeumo or Livra

  16. klopptimusprime
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    Changing mind every 10 mins, just need the deadline to hurry.

    Help me out (can do B and C without by doing over 2 weeks)

    a) Vardy + Mbeumo to Wilson + Jota (means price out of any Spurs premiums)
    b) Vardy + Raph + Toney to Kane + Jota + K.Davis (-4)
    c) Vardy + Raph + Mbeumo to Jota + Son + Broja (-4)
    d) Mbeumo + Raph to Jota + Normann

    Foster
    TAA | Dias | Cancelo | James
    Salah | Foden | Mbeumo
    Vardy | Antonio | Toney

    Sanchez | Livra | Raph | Brownhill, 2FT, 0.4 ITB

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Those are tough options

      D imo

      You can also do Toney to cheapie and Mbeumo to Jota

      1. klopptimusprime
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Could do AArmstrong. Bit annoying that just brought in Toney for him last week, and keen for at least one of them to play Newcastle, long term tho seems like a better move Cheers

    2. Kosan11
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Tricky options. Maybe D? I would avoid Broja and C, if Armstrong keeps good form, maybe his time will be limited. B sounds also good.

      1. klopptimusprime
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Yep, Broja is there strickly as 2nd bench option, believe he's better than anything I can get under 5.1m

        Currently on D deciding on who to get rid with Mbeumo Toney or Raph

  17. andre_c
    • 3 Years

    Any ideas here?

    Ramsdale, Foster
    TAA, Cancelo, Chilly, Azpi, Livra
    Salah, Foden, Raph, Mbeumo, Brownhill
    Vardy, Armstrong, Antonio

    2FT, $0.1ITB

    Thanks

    1. Kosan11
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Get rid of Azpi, and maybe Vardy to Wilson

    2. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Always possible you could make the wrong choice moving anyone. You have bench cover so roll maybe. If Vardy scores against Chelsea you might decide on suicide (smile)

    3. CAVEAT KING
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Missed 2 ft's sorry. Azpi to RJames?

      1. andre_c
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah might just do that

  18. Kosan11
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 4 days ago

    What would you do guys, I'm really tired of Mbeumo's constant blanking.

    Current first XI

    Ramsdale
    Chilwell | Cancelo (VC) | TAA | James
    Salah (C) | Foden | Mbeumo
    Jimenez | Wilson | Armstrong

    Bench: Foster Livra ESR Normann

    0 FT 5.5 ITB

    I thought to maybe take a hit, Jimenez - > Kane, have feeling that Jimenez is going to blank this game. But Mbeumo drives me crazy.

    1. Mbeumo -4 - - > Gallagher/Bowen/Cornet
    2. Jimenez -4 - - > Kane
    3. Hold g2g

    My mind says 3, but... Thanks

    1. klopptimusprime
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 4 days ago

      Mbeumo could well fire this week, that said, Jim will probably outperform him over the next weeks, meaning Mbeumo to Son could well be an option

      1. Kosan11
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah I agree. Logical decision should be to keep Mbeumo for Newcastle, and sell Jim before Lpool game. Actually is hard to resist Spurs hype, that's the biggest problem.

  19. mdm

    1. Kosan11
      • 3 Years

      Wow. Game changer, aren't you afraid that Gilmour can pack three goals and 2 assists?

      1. waldo666

        Hahaha, it's a fear I will have to live with 😉

    2. gogs67

      Gilmore was outstanding for Scotland midweek against Denmark, playing quite advanced,
      Real shame he's not getting a sniff at Norwich.

    3. mynameisq

      Why the heck would you make that move now? Dean Smith in charge, give it a week or two

    Mornign dzz, can go for either Son or Kane with 5.5m itb which implications on which players i keep/get rid. best combo here till gw16?

    A: Kane + Mbeumo + Toney...with Toney >> Wilson/Jota in gw13 for free
    B: Son + Jota + Wilson (-4) by gw13

    Marginally prefer Kane over Son but mbeumo has a been a flop for me till now and i will have no funds left over to update mbeumo

    Who do you think can hurt you this weekend?
    Jota is the stand out. most have recently sold him and it looks like he has to come back.
    Son/Kane are obvious picks and there are various reasons why one would pick one or the other.
    Ronaldo is going to score this weekend as is a candidate for Captain.
    Gallagher is showing promise and and obvious swap for Mbeumo (Maybe not this week.
    Wilson is a reliable pick and probably the best mid priced forward atm.
    Tsimikas could come into the equation dependent on Robbo injury.
    Getting a keeper Ramsdale/Guaita is an opportunity to move Sanchez on.
    Cornet could become a popular pick.
    Who have I forgotten.

      Depends on whether you need to catch up and take risk, or play safe. Salah the safe option as most top 100K will captain Salah.

      Certainly 'if' Roberston is injured. Tsmikas are deputised extremely well and is a great offfensive player on corners.
