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.

    Play Coady at home to West Ham or Williams at home to Southampton?

    Thinking Williams because Southampton are more likely to blank than West Ham...thoughts?

      Williams as he’s FB, not much in it

    I've gone similar on a WC this week with the first team, just Wilson/Foden instead of Antonio/ESR

    You not tempted by Ronaldo for this week, then swap to Kane next with a FT?

  3. Ginola
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Bench Vardy or Livramento? Thinking B, always play the attacker? Norwich such a good fixture though.

    1. Kloppen Schloppen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      No one else you could bench?

  4. Pep Roulette
    • 4 Years

    A. Save FT & play Foster

    B. Raya to Ederson/Lloris

  5. The-Red-1

    • 4 Years

    Bench one or Livramento, Foden or Toney.

    In currently on Toney...

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Livramento

    2. acidicleo

      probably liv and hope for a new manager bounce for the canaries and pukki!!

    3. TLF

      Livra

  6. FCSB
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Final dilemma… play one:

    1. Jimenez (WHU)
    2. Mbeumo (new)
    3. Livramento (nor) [would be 5 at the back]

    Thanks

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        yes, i just worry Jiminez will be on bench (i have him) and Livra against Norwich is better than Mbeumo

        1. FCSB
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I’m just reluctant to go 5 at the back mate… I know what you’re saying re Jimi though

  7. Wolfman180
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    On WC with Foden currently in the team (was already in team so got like 0.2 tied up in him).

    Worth transferring out for Bowen, which allows me to upgrade Edouard to Wilson. Or keep Foden and play Eduoard this week?

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      No way

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      look for another way to get funds IMO.

  8. Hart-ake
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    which one to bench:

    a) Christensen
    b) Raphina

    1. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      a

    2. Il Capitano

      A

  9. Hunting for points
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Play 2:

    Vardy, Greenwood, Livramento

  10. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Start Mbuemo or Jimenez?

    1. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      M

    2. Hart-ake
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      M for sure.

    3. FCSB
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Similar dilemma been on Jimenez all week but tempted by Mbeumo now

  11. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    would you rather have...

    A - Raphina
    B - James
    C - Gallagher

    put them in order

    1. acidicleo
      • 5 Years

  12. steven8991

    Which 1 to lose for Son
    A. Mount
    B. Foden
    C. Raph

      A

  13. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Wison or Jesus? The amount Jesus has played surprised me

    1. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      jesus if u can afford

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        this

    2. Wolfman180
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I'm currently on Jesus and did debate Wilson but I'm sticking with him. I think he'll be good differential

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        agree, seems obvious when you think city dont even have another striker

        1. Footieboot
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Jesus is playing on the right not striker.

    3. shortbanana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Wilson for me.

    4. RedRo
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Huge difference in price and depends what you do with it. Jesus is playing right wing but listed as a striker which isn’t ideal but could maybe get away with it at the moment given how poor the other strikers in the game have been.

    5. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Given the risk that Foden might not be fit and Gray coming off the bench:

      A. Gray > Gallagher (even if 1st sub with Liv and Raph starting)

      B. Roll the FT

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        a

      2. Kloppen Schloppen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        B

    6. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Best of luck to everyone this GW!

      Green arrows - get another green.

      Fellow reds - let's get back at it after the break!

    7. steven8991
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Which pair?

      A. Son & Wilson
      B. ESR/Gallagher & Kane

      1. OleBall
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Probably A But B allows for easy route to Ronaldo for fixture swing

    8. Kloppen Schloppen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Starting 11 and bench look G2G?

      Guita
      TAA Cancelo Rudiger Livra
      Salah Gallagher Mbuemo
      Kane Vardy Antonio

      Benrhama Duffy Allan

      1. Crunchie

        Yep GTG

      2. acidicleo

        good..consider benny over rudi maybe.

    9. OleBall

      Best 4.5max defender?

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        lamptey.
        is livra 4.6 now?

    10. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ramsdale(Foster)
      TAA, Chilwell, Cancelo, Dias, Livramento
      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 (Borja V Norwich could be a good gamble)?

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Then swap Saka to Jota in 2 weeks if Firminho is still out if i chose A

      2. Kloppen Schloppen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Saka to Jota and see how spurs do with another week under Conte. Not sure if they’re worth a hit just yet

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          i just hate Vardy lol

          1. Kloppen Schloppen
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Haha yeah he’s sucked since I got him in. Can’t deny the fixtures coming up tho. Only issue is Youri being out. Really gonna watch Vardy closely this weekend

            1. Crunchie
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Yes Youri being out "(the assister) unless vardy assists nacho, killed it for me, but i am getting rid, so he will start scoring, happens every year 🙂

              1. Crunchie
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Plus Jota against Arsenal who will pay for a low-scoring draw is not the best GW IMO..

    11. shortbanana
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Pick two to start?

      A) Livramento
      B) Raphinha
      C) Benrahma
      D) Veltman

      Have 1FT with 1.9m in bank. Also sitting on wildcard so could use FT as a 1/2 GW punt. Antonio > Wilson, and Benrahma > Cornet/Havertz/Jota spring to mind

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years

        AB

    12. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Repost with narrowed-down options..

      Bench one:

      A) Livra (nor) ------------> cs very likely...potential for attacking return too..
      B) Raphinha (tot) -------> likely to score or assist.. but play vs conte's team.
      C) Toney (new) --------> very good fixture.. but has burnt me a lot already..

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I am benching Jiminez i think

        2. shortbanana
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          True, but he's had an extra day's training. If he's match fit he will play, he's the focal point for Wolves and has passed eye test since GW4 for me. His returns won't dry up, and I definitely see him getting another double digit return before the fixtures swing.

        I wouldn't use a transfer on your defence right now. You have 4 defenders who should score well over next 4 weeks at least.

        1. Begbie.
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Yeah I probably do agree with that tbf. It's classic fear of missing out re Cancelo.

            Exactly same as me mate, I’m reluctant to go 5 at the back…

            I’m hanging onto the hope that Norwich have the new manager bounce and score v Southampton

    16. OleBall

      Thoughts on this WC, I know it will have potential benching headaches but I feel I can afford a decent bench as the players I want are cheap enough.

      McCarthy
      TAA Cancelo Chilwell James
      Salah(C) Foden Trossard Zaha
      Jesus Antonio

      Foster, Edouard, ESR, Livramento

        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Nah not a fan of Zaha and trossard. Zaha NEVER gets bonus and trossard is patchy. I’d probably downgrade Eduard to a 4.5 and see what I could do with the cash for those 2 spots

        1. Wolfman180
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I could downgrade Zaha to Gallagher and upgrade Edouard to Wilson

    19. FPL Doctor
