Tuesday’s FPL team news: Edouard in for Benteke as Rashica and Cantwell miss out

A full midweek schedule of Premier League matches kicks off tonight, with Newcastle United v Norwich City and Leeds United v Crystal Palace getting Gameweek 14 underway.

The games begin at 19:30 and 20:15 BST respectively.

Newcastle, who remain the only Premier League team without a win, make three changes from their Gameweek 13 loss at Arsenal, with Ciaran Clark (£4.4m) and Jamal Lewis (£4.2m) replacing the suspended Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m) and Matt Ritchie (£4.9m), with Javier Manquillo (£4.0m) also getting the nod ahead of Emil Krafth (£4.3m).

Elsewhere, Dwight Gayle (£5.3m) features as a substitute having recovered from a hamstring injury.

As for Norwich, Dean Smith makes two changes, as Lukas Rupp (£4.4m) comes in for Mathias Normann (£4.5m), who is set to see a specialist due to a recurring pelvic issue, while Christos Tzolis (£4.8m) replaces the injured Milot Rashica (£5.2m), who is out with a groin problem.

Todd Cantwell (£5.3m), meanwhile, is also absent with a Covid-related issue.

The Canaries have taken seven points from their last three games, with Fantasy interest mostly centred around Teemu Pukki (£5.8m), who has scored two goals during that time.

Marcelo Bielsa makes three changes from the XI that drew 0-0 at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, with Pascal Struijk (£4.4m), Mateusz Klich (£5.4m) and Tyler Roberts (£4.8m) coming in for Junior Firpo (£4.7m), Rodrigo (£6.3m) and Jack Harrison (£5.6m), all of whom are substitutes.

Patrick Vieira also makes three switches, with Luka Milivojevic (£5.4m), Michael Olise (£5.4m) and Christian Benteke (£6.4m) dropping out for Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.4m), Odsonne Edouard (£6.5m) and Jordan Ayew (£5.8m).

Influential defender Joachim Andersen (£4.5m) misses out again with a hamstring injury.

    Everyone switch to leed game

  2. NateDog

    Are Newcastle just sitting back? Norwich goal might force them to go for it at least

    1. G B
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not really. Defending in a 432. Looking dangerous on the counter.

    2. BIG TONES
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Down to 10 men so playing counter I think

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Counters suit ASM & Wilson.

    4. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Both teams are utter garbage and will end 0-0

  3. Podge
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    I’m bored

  4. Shark Team
    • 4 Years

    Is Ben Johnson the starting RB for West Ham ahead of Coufal?

    1. ClassiX
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Currently appears that way. Expect some rotation, though

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Moyes said he's earned the shirt, so yes, but don't be surprised if Coufal starts the odd game over Xmas.

    3. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      At the moment but expect rotation

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I doubt it will last very long.

  5. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Sargant is one of the worst forwards I have seen

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      competing with Joelinton and that's something

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Don't forget about Werner.

    2. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He has a unique ability to come off worse in every single 50/50

    3. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Tyler Roberts says hi

  6. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Went for a differential of Ryan Fraser this week… typical!!

    1. jason_ni
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Ouch

  7. Crouching Tiger
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Pukki, Mendy, Smith Rowe OUT
    Jota, De Gea, Broja IN (-4)

    Exact money for it, should I go for it?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No

    2. Podge
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Nah

    3. BIG TONES
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Surely better value out there than DDG?

      1. Crouching Tiger
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        United fixtures getting very good, Varane coming back from injury, new manager, can see more clean sheets incoming.
        Who else for 5.0?

        Also Norwich fixtures turning worse now so not sure Pukki will score big in the upcoming games. Broja is a gamble, but Jota would be a nice addition.

        1. Zim0
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Ramsdale?

          1. Crouching Tiger
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Decent shout, almost too template 😉

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No. May as well go 4.4m fwd if getting Broja anyway and hence the exact money part doesn't matter IMO.

      1. Crouching Tiger
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Think Broja just came back from injury and should fit into starting lineup.

  8. EffPeeEll
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    switching this geordie v canaries drivel off,

    Hope the other game is better than this shoite

    1. Don Van Vliet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Explosive opening 10 after the break.

    2. Jacktastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Better game, better picture to

    3. DavidBadWillie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I like your spelling shoite

  9. mad_beer ✅

    Foden saved me from doing Jesus to Wilson. It's the little things.

    1. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Saved you??

  10. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Is benteke the best forward for 6.4 or under (excluding king/Dennis)?

  11. Little Red Lacazette
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Maybe Wilson need to go back to Bournemouth to get his mojo back.

  12. Duke Silver ☑
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Norwich are so boring to watch. Youi'd think they had the man sent off here.

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      settled for a 0-0 it seems

  13. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Imagine ASM and Troare in the same team.

    1. No Professionals
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      The fifa kids would love it

  14. Scholes Out For Summer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Anyone else cant watch the Palace game because they dont have Gallagher and cant bear to watch him in the 10?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Don’t think anyone in my ML has him including me lol

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        No need to worry, I have him!

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Phew!

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years

          I can now relax for the evening, cheers Super Saints

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      he's not that good

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        This

    3. Gunneryank
        1 month, 25 days ago

        He's first on my bench. More interested in watching Raph in this poor Leeds side and if he's still actually worth keeping.

    4. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I placed a series of 25p accumulators on this gw's fixtures.

      I predicted a draw in both games tonight (for most of them).

      So far so good.

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I put 25p on Norwich to win and have most corners and shots on target in each half at 200/1, not looking too bad now (although I'm sure they'll still probably mess it up)

        1. tangtastic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          You got 200-1 for that?

          Holy cow, what site is that

          1. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Paddy Power, naturally it didn't happen but they overprice that option a fair bit. Won on it with Watford earlier in the season in their game against Norwich, for example, at 100/1. I'm not one for big bets much, generally 25p-1 or 2 on something I'd feel is very good value but in the right game those have a good chance to pay off.

    5. JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Need Raph and Gallagher blanks

      1. Salah’s Sonnet
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Raph yes
        Gallagher hat trick

      2. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        G will blank, Raph not so much

    6. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Game is so boring may as well do this.

      Hopefully things will be a bit clearer after the game week but I have no idea what to do with this lot? I guess if Ronaldo is benched again he has to go but for who and if Wilson gets booked he'll have to go? 2FT 0ITB

      I'm keen to improve the bench.

      Sanchez
      TAA Cancelo James Rudiger
      Salah Son Gallagher ESR
      Ronaldo Wilson
      Steele Liv Siss Scarlett

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        maybe Ronalod to Kane and Gallagher to Jota

        1. Super Saints
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Lol thanks for the reply but Ronaldo and Kane are the same price so can nowhere near afford that.

          1. have you seen cyan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Well your team isnt bad in reality, they arent injured.
            Who do you actually want? Who dont you want?

            Wilson>Pukki,King/Dennis
            or
            Ronalod>Vardy

            and get Jota. Either way you might not like Wilson, but those other 3 cheapies are going to be the same kind of situation in reality. Ronaldo, we have no idea whats gonna happen there but he might be good option still. I wouldnt worry about it until the game week is over

    7. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years

      tale of 2 awful teams, 0-0 HT

      1. Crouching Tiger
        • 9 Years

        Dreadful half at both games...

    9. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Gallagher deep.

      1. Super Saints
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Lol what is going on with my players at the moment, is he now reverse OOP

      2. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Always plays deep and gets to run forward
