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.

    What would you do here?
    Ignore Sanchez, bring in Jota and see how Spurs will do and if they do good I have 2 FT for next GW?
    Or just bring in Jota and Guaita/Ramsdale?

    2 FT 0.1 ITB
    Sanchez Ward
    Rudiger Cancelo TAA Livra Semedo
    Rapinha Salah Saka Havertz Bissouma
    Toney Antonio Vardy

    1. Ze_Austin

      First priority is always the weakness in your squad

      Sanchez to Guaita is a move that can pay off with a 20+ point gain until a switch to McCarthy/Mendy in GW26

      Address Havertz next GW with 2 FTs

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        I agree. Change GK.

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Depends on how you feel about Sanchez going forward?

      and Spurs to hit the floor running. Jota V Arsenal is probably their toughest game over next few GW's

  2. # Young Gun SEAMUS #
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    A) Kane Gallaghar johnson
    Or
    B) Son Wilson White/Dier

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I did Son Wilson over Kane Gallagher but think it could go either way

    2. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Think I prefer B. I prefer Son over Kane and Johnson could drop out completely at any point.

    3. SensibleSoccerChamp
      • 5 Years

      A

    Sarr > Mbeumo for free then put him 1st bench him in case Robbo doesn't play

    Sa
    Robbo Dias Rudiger James Livramento
    Salah Raph Mount
    Kane Antonio (c)
    (Matthews Sarr Gray Davis)

    1. Root
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Robertson to Cancelo, if you can't afford TAA. Why Antonio captain?

      1. Von Lipwig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Meant Kane (c) sorry. Thanks for advice

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Do you want Mbeumo long term? If not stick, unless fund is for Robbo > TAA?

  4. JollyGoodYellows
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Which one to bench?

    A) Livra
    B) Raph
    C) Vardy

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Defender

    2. SensibleSoccerChamp
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      C

    3. ShackledAce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Livra for me, but its agony

    4. Wild Card this!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Has to be A

  5. DeadStar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Rudiger to James for a hit? I know most are against hits but I’m pretty sure I won’t get a free opportunity to do it as there’s always some other priority. Do I just change now and hope to earn the points back over the next few weeks?

    1. Beatle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Yeah may as well

  6. kysersosa

    Play

    A) Christensen (playing James also)
    B) Livermento
    C) transfer (FT) Christensen to (1) Chilwell or (2)Reguilon

    Thoughts on benching Vardy?

    Current team, bench dilemma.
    Who to bench?

    Fernandez
    TAA - Cancelo - James - Chilwell
    Salah (c) - Raphina - Gallagher
    Toney - Antonio - Vardy

    Subs: Ramsdale - Trossard - Livra - ESR

  11. Rushford
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Play two of:

    A) Raphinha (tot)
    B) Toney (new)
    C) jimenez (WHU)
    D) Livra (nor)

    Worth to do Raph-> Jota for -4?

    1. ballsy_b
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 29 days ago

      A & B
      Not with the -4

  12. Von Lipwig
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    A) Play Livra (Bench Sarr)
    B) Sarr > Mbeumo (bench Livra)
    C) Sarr > Gallager (bench Livra)

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      A for me out of those. What do you think of my question below?

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      A

  13. Gentle_Turks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Bench Mbeumo or Raphina (playing Toney)?
    Thanks and good luck this week.

    1. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Tough. Raph capable of being explosive in any game, but Mbeumo fixture is to be relished. GL

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I’d bench Raph, Conte will probably prioritise a solid defence first so could be a low scoring game, and if Brentford score, Mbeumo and Toney have equal chance of being involved

  14. FDMS All Starz
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    How would you use the FT here?

    (2FTs & 0.0itb)

    Foster
    TAA - Chilwell - Cancelo - Livra
    Salah - Mane - Mount* - Foden*
    Antonio - Toney

    (Sanchez* - ESR - Manqillo - Davis)

    A) Mane/Mount—> Son/Jota
    B) Mount/Manquillo—> Gallahger/Reguillon
    C) Other (what?)

    1. Bishopool
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      a with Son and Gall?

      1. FDMS All Starz
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Surely Mane & Mount have more potential than Son & Gall?

    2. Gentle_Turks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Mane to Brownhill and Davis to Kane. What’s your answer to my conundrum, above?

  15. woodles
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Please order these!!
    Toney
    Sarr
    Saka

  16. Bishopool
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    What would u do?

    Foster (Sanchez)
    Cancelo Livra Duffy (Digne Amartey)
    Salah Havertz Foden* Saka (Sarr)
    Vardy Jimi Toney

    a) stay with Havertz and Sarr -> 7,1m midfielder
    b) Havertz, Digne -> Son, Tsimikas (-4pts)
    c) Havertz, Sarr -> Son, Brownhill (-4pts)
    d) Digne -> Reguilon
    b) WC with Son, Kane, TAA, Ronaldo

  17. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Call me crazy but I’m really tempted by this hit…

    Antonio & ESR to Pukki & Jota

    1. Roysgotnoboys
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      You're crazy

    2. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      You'll want ESR next week and Antonio could hurt you yet so wouldn't say it's worth a hit let alone for free

    3. The Train Driver
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Only if you C Pukki

    4. CrouchDown
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Crazy

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Those Norwich fixtures…but yeah maybe a little too crazy.

        Thanks all

    5. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Wouldn’t even do that for free...

      1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
        • 5 Years

        Lol says something

    6. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Ramsdale will stop Jota this week

    7. Old Bull
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      I understand the potential for Pukki but that’s very much one to watch. Remember,
      He who stares, wins

  18. hjc13
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Sell mount for jota or Gallagher ?

    1. LLoris
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Jota

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Why are you selling Mount? Don’t think he will start?

  19. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 29 days ago

    Or should I save?

    Steele
    Trent | Cancelo | James | Livramento
    Salah | Son | Raphinha | ESR
    Kane | Antonio

    Sanchez* | Manquillo | Brownhill | Scarlett

        1. LLoris
          • 3 Years

          Not bad I’d just be patient

    Should I start Vardy?
    Current team, bench dilemma.
    Who to bench?

    Fernandez
    TAA - Cancelo - James - Chilwell
    Salah (c) - Raphina - Gallagher
    Toney - Antonio - Vardy

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Start him but you will want 2 pts from him due to James Chillwell double up

    2. Big Mac 24
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Have to start vardy at home imo, bench James

  21. Crunchie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    B is good with a WC in your back pocket.

    Eddie Howe has Covid-19.

    1. Qaiss

      Will miss the Arsenal game too?

    Ramsdale(Foster)

    Salah(c) Gallagher, Foden, (Saka, Normann)
    Vardy, Toney (Jimenez)

    A. Vardy/Toney to Kane/Broja (-4)
    B. Vardy/Saka to Son Wilson (-4)
    C. Vardy/Foden to Jota/Kane (-4)
    D. Saka to Jota

    A lets me go to 3-5-2 moving forward, but a worse team this week (Broja V Norwich could be a good gamble)?

  27. Gazwaz80

    Cheers peeps, may your gameweek bring you good fortune over this difficult to judge weekend…

    1. Big Mac 24
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 29 days ago

      Jiminez or Dias ahead of Liv. I know he’s doing well but it’s still an away fixture.

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 29 days ago

        Cheers Big Mac, its difficult as I feel very loyal to Livra as he’s got be out of trouble so many times but I see where you’re coming from. I wasn’t hungry until I started to type this message beginning with cheers Big Mac 🙂

          Choosing Liv over Rudiger has cost me likley 10+ points today.

            • 2 Years
            8 months, 29 days ago

            Yep, got rid of Rudi this week 🙁
