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.

        Cheers guys.

        My thoughts entirely.

        I should trade up for Son!

    0.4m ITB - 0 FT left as I did Sarr to Gallagher early.

    Any hits required??

  4. THEKID_88
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    What's the consensus on Livra v Rudiger? Already have James

    1. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Livra

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I'm starting Chilwell, TAA and Livra with Rudiger on the bench

      1. THEKID_88
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers

    3. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Livra has better fixture and more attacking threat. id definitely start him due to bigger upside

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Play Livra, no need to double up this gw

  5. Solanke
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Is this bench order correct?

    ESR | Duffy | Broja

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Si

    2. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yep

  6. HurriKane
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Can we really trust Vardy despite the decent fixtures? Especially at the expense of a Kane or Son

    Leciester side looks very unsettled at the moment

    Tielemens their best midfeilder out for 3-4 weeks. Maddison and Barnes out of form all season.

    Ndidi has been injured all season and just returned recently so will take some time to get up to speed

    Their fullbacks has been underwhelming

    Likes of Nacho Daka Lookman has all been in and out of the team

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Sold him for Kane last night. Bought 3gw ago and only blanks, classic case of beeing late to the party

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      It's Vardy though.

      He will punish you when you have him and he'll punish you when you don't.

    3. No Need
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Probably give him next 2 home games to see if things change and he is well rested. Also time to watch Spurs with a move to Kane in gw14 as backup

  7. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Sa’ + Mount > Lloris + Jota/Bernardo for Free

    Then next gameweek, Ronaldo > Kane

    Yes or No?

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Good plan but you'd want ronaldo by gw15-16 anyway

  8. vova
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Play Steele or Ramsdale?

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Ramsdale

      1. Junks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 8 days ago

        This

    2. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Ramsdale

  9. FCSB
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo James Chilwell
    Salah Son Foden Raphinha Mbeumo
    Antonio

    Foster Jimenez Livramento Davis

    Is this lineup good to go please?

    1. HurriKane
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Start Livra over Raphinha

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      West Ham defense is not great and Jimenez on pens, not sure I would bench

    Gtg?

    Im having bench dilemmas!

    Foster
    taa cancelo chilwell james livra
    salah(c) havertz jota
    Antonio ASM

    Ramsdale Tony Raph Benrahma

    Switch any?

    1. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I'd personally play Toney over Livra but it's close.

      Norwich under a new manager and off the back of a win, I think they'll score.

    2. acidicleo
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      BB?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah, that looks like a good bench boost.

        1. Raf
          • 13 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          usually save this for double gameweeks. another dilemma! lol

  14. CONNERS
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Morning

    Who do you think is the "best" of the 4.5 bench fodder mids?

    Normann perhaps?

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Brownhill at 4.4

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'd prefer Normann.

    2. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Thanks Holmes.

      Does Normann not appeal assuming he'll likely keep his 'playmaker' role in the Norwich side?

  15. phoenixfromtheflames
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Play A) Rudiger or B) Edouard?

    1. Junks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 8 days ago

      B.... I go with the forward

    2. acidicleo
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      B

      1. phoenixfromtheflames

        Thanks guys

  16. Arteta

    Question exclusively for my fellow Arsenal fans - will you captain Salah?

    1. RWB_1991
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      No I couldn’t do it

    2. Cojones of Destiny
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      yes

  17. Junks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 8 days ago

    After weeks of pain with Azpi since I brought him in on my WC do I keep him or sell him now?

    1. phoenixfromtheflames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Do you have James or Chillwell? If not I’d switch Azpi to one of them

      1. Junks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 8 days ago

        No I don’t... I was thinking to switch to Cancelo as no city but then that leave a message with no Chelsea

  18. Hiiler
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Any thoughts on my WC team? Is my bench selection good for GW12 or would you change bench players?

    Guaita(Foster)
    Chilwell,Cancelo,TAA(Livramento1B,Johnson 3B)
    Jota,Mbuemo,Salah(V),Gallagher(ESR2B)
    A.Armstrong,Antonio.GR7(C)

    1. The Mentaculus

    2. phoenixfromtheflames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      If you don’t have too much tied up in Antonio, or the funds to compensate, I’d consider Wilson for the next 4 and Antonio back in for gw 16

      1. Hiiler
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Was thinking of holding him, but this idea of yours is doable it seems.:)

  19. Kodap

    Am I Good to go this morning?

    Steele
    TAA - Cancelo - Chilwell - Livra
    Salah (c) - Son - Jota
    Antonio - Toney - Jesus (vc)

    Sanchez - Rudiger - ESR - Sissoko

    1. phoenixfromtheflames

      Gtg!

  20. RWB_1991

    Any leaks on Man U lineup?

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Lingard and Phil Jones up front as Ole looks to ring the changes!

    2. yousunkmybattleship
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yes it won’t be good enough

  21. RWB_1991
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Greenwood starting today?

    1. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      50/50 according to what I've read on here from those in the know. (so to speak).

      1. RWB_1991

    Does having Salah cap make a difference to picking Foster over Ramsdale?

    1. rainy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      No difference. Battle of the save points for those two this week anyway

  24. Footieboot
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Vardy + Marcal --> James + Wilson for free worth it?

    1. Assisting the assister
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yep

    2. phoenixfromtheflames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yes

  25. ididnt
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Mbuemo > Gallagher for free?

    1. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Could hurt you

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Maybe wait a week for that move?

      On paper it's a good matchup for Brentford and Eddie Howe teams aren't known for their defensive prowess, so Bees could score a few today (as could Toon, too).

    3. phoenixfromtheflames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Wait a week

  26. yousunkmybattleship
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Let’s go Vardy!!

  27. Big Weng

    Would you WC this team? 0FT 1.4 ITB

    Foster | Sanchez

    TAA | Chilwell | TAA | Cancelo | Livra

    ESR | Gallagher | Raph | Salah | Benny

    Vardy | Toney | Antonio

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Nah, how many changes would you make?

      1. Big Weng
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Need to get one of Son/Jota/Foden/Kane and get rid of Vardy some how

    2. phoenixfromtheflames
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Nope, only a couple of changes needed

  28. baines is god

    jimenez 50/50 to start?

  29. Mozumbus
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Would Mane start?

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Yes. Klopp said he's fine

        1. Mozumbus
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks

        2. RWB_1991

      2. ctulhu
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'm upgrading Duffy to Cancelo.

        Should I fund him with:

        A) Vardy --> Benteke
        B Vardy --> Wilson

        for -4?

        1. baines is god
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          B

        2. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          7 months, 8 days ago

          B for next 4 GW. I actually like A also though

        3. ctulhu
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Thanks guys. I'm also leaning towards B but kind of like A as well. I guess B it is for the next 5 GWs or so.

          Might do Toney --> Benteke later if the latter begins to show consistent minutes and returns.

        4. phoenixfromtheflames
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
