Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 12 preview and latest team plans

Andy North and Mark Sutherns are back after the internationals, with the latter breaking a recent hiatus from Blackbox to chat Fantasy Premier League (FPL) once again.

Mark is recording for our subscribers every Gameweek throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see his regular appearances.

With four new manager appointments, a clamour for Spurs attacking assets and the regular flirtation with an alternative to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) as captain, there’s plenty for Andy and Mark to chew over.

And of course, they dip into their own teams to chat their current thinking ahead of Saturday’s much anticipated deadline.

    Guaita (Sanchez)
    TAA Chilwell Livramento Duffy (Jansson)
    Salah Foden Gray (Benrahma Brownhill)
    Antonio Aubameyang Vardy

    0.2 ITB and 2FT.

    Any ideas what to do?
    Is Auba/Foden gonna play?

    1. The Movement
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Auba way too expensive, drop that dirty gooner

        1. SalahFingers
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          For who? I would like either Kane or Ronaldo, but would need to find another ~2m somewhere

          1. The Movement
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Kane/Ronaldo and Wilson for Auba and Vardy?

        2 months, 4 days ago

        How does this team look for GW13 onwards?
        Is the bench too weak?

        Sanchez
        TAA James Cancelo Regulion
        Salah Jota Foden
        Kane Antonio Toney

        (4.0 Livra Brownhill Sissoko)

        1. SalahFingers
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Sanchez is banned for this week, so you have no goalkeeper.

          Otherwise looks good. I wouldn't worry about bench. Livra and Brownhill are fine bench fodder. They play always.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah I just thought there is no use of using an Ft on gk this week as he's only banned for one game.
            Wanted to target Spurs players with their good fixtures and higher ceiling.

        2. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          With James & Foden, likely the bench will be required every other GW I reckon

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            I doubt it. They always get subbed on.

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

          Yeah, I would say weak considering James/Cancelo/Foden could get benched during festive period (plus other suspension/injury)

          But its probably going to be okay since they will get some points and its unlikely that you will need all of them.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah also most of these players seem to be subbed on anyways when they get benched.

        Play Rudiger (Lei) or Lord Livra (Nor)?

        1. SalahFingers
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Personally, Rudiger.

        2. The Knights Template

          Livermentos

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

          Chelsea def will be high EO and so it’s a bit of a risk going without, however I think Livra will get more points

        4. Little Red Lacazette
          • 5 Years

          Mementos

          1. The Movement
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Livra

        5. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Ramsdale
          Lowton - Livramento - Duffy
          Salah (c) - Havertz - ESR - Gallagher
          Ronaldo (vc) - Vardy - Antonio

          Sanchez* - Gray - Jansson - White

          1 x FT, 0.7 ITB

          Anything worth transfer? Bench right order?

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

            Nope, all good.

            1. Jafooli
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Cheers Sir Template…

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            No, btw that defence looks pretty thin..

            1. Jafooli
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Yeah, I know….I like it 😀

            • 11 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            1st team I've seen this year without a single premium defender! Fine to save this gw but you need to bolster that defence at some point imo

            1. Jafooli
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Maybe winter WC, but they’re doing me fine for now…..

        6. Ha.

          Morning! Who to play?

          1. ESR

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

              Would it change your mind if I said I have Regulion and not TAA?

              1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                  Interesting…

                  Don’t see anything but a 2 pointer really, but I know anything could happen

            • 4 Years

                Let it burn or get ahead of it this week and ditch Toney

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Foden, Havertz or Raphinha to Jota?

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                I'd get Son or Jota in for sure. Possibly even both.

                I’ve already got James

                A) Livra
                B) Chilwell

                      A. Maybe C next week. Sounds like Azpi might get an outing at wing back this GW

                      1. Mozumbus
                          2 months, 4 days ago

                          Thanks. Will be a blessing if Azpi not benched this GW.
                          My OR tanked down in past few GWs from ~20k to ~400k now mainly due to KDB and Azpi moves. No complains though 😀

                      B. James
                      C. Livra

                      Have vardy at the starting 11

                      So it looks like most of you will play at least one of the chel defence today right? I have vardy and rudi.. So I guess it is safe to start Rudiger than esr.

                        Yes but only because I have 2 of them, playing chillwell benching rudi, hardly be a shock of Leicester score

                      Play 2:
                      ESR (Liv)
                      Raph (Tot)
                      Livra (Nor)

                        I'd roll. Kai F9 one more week. Decided against Jota myself since Firmino may be back sooner than rumoured

                      Morning All

                      Is this worth a -4 possibly a -8 with Kane move

                      A. Luiz > Jota
                      B. Jiminez > Kane

                      Concerned I have no bench especially with latest news about Foden and possibly Jiminez.

                      Foster

                      Cancelo | TAA | Chilwell | Livramento

                      Mbeumo | Gallagher | Salah | Foden

                      Jiminez | Antonio

                      Sanchez | White | Luiz | Davis

                        Possibly A but depends on what the other move is

                          2 months, 4 days ago

                          My plan this week was to get Kane in for Jiminez but injury news means I might not get a full starting eleven.

                          Not sure if I risk it or go for the -8

                      Does anyone know what Salah's record is against Arsenal?

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

                        In total, Salah boasts nine goal contributions from nine Premier League games against Arsenal (seven strikes, two assists), and he has come out on the winning side six times in that sequence.

                        Four of Salah's goals and both of his assists have come during encounters at Anfield, where the home crowd will certainly harbour hopes of the wing king repeating his old tricks against Arsenal once more.

                        5 goals and 1assist in the last 10. 2 of this goals came in 1 game so that's 3 goals in 9. Nothing special I'd say.

                        • 11 Years
                        2 months, 4 days ago

                        He has only played one league game against Arteta’s Arsenal

                        But he’s on 11.5 XGi from 11 games, so you’d expect him to get a return of some sort per game on average based on the chances he’s been getting season to date

                        Has a 'knock' that is 'getting better'. Apparently been seen training ok. I'm playing him because a haul left on my bench will annoy me more than a 1 point cameo would

                        This one would help me also - same dilemma.

                        I picked Raphinha and benched Toney & Livra.
