AFCON latest: Which FPL players are called up and when do they leave?

The delayed 2021 edition of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) is only a fortnight or so away but the full ramifications for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are still a bit unclear, even at this late stage.

We know when the tournament proper takes place but how many Gameweeks our FPL assets will miss is still unclear, with clubs battling to delay the departure of their players until the last possible minute.

The tournament squads are still being finalised at the time of writing but with Gameweek 19 fast approaching, we’ll round up what we know so far.

WHEN DOES AFCON 2021 TAKE PLACE?

The tournament proper runs from Sunday 9 January to Sunday 6 February and will be staged in Cameroon.

With 16 nations progressing from the 24-team group stage, the chances of getting some of the big FPL names back early aren’t great; the likes of Egypt, Ghana, Senegal, Ivory Coast and Algeria are among the tournament favourites and will expect to go deep into the knockout rounds.

HOW MANY GAMEWEEKS WILL FPL PLAYERS MISS DUE TO THEIR INVOLEMENT AT AFCON?

On paper, the damage doesn’t look too bad. Thanks to a combination of the FA Cup and a wider January international break, only two Gameweeks are affected while AFCON is on: Gameweeks 22 and 23.

However, with the competing countries requiring and allowed pre-tournament prep time with their players, other Gameweeks could be affected before that.

According to FIFA rules

“Players must be released and start the travel to their representative team no later than Monday morning the week preceding the week when the relevant final competition starts and must be released by the association in the morning of the day after the last match of their team in the tournament.”

With the tournament kicking off on Sunday 9 January, that theoretically would mean that players involved in AFCON will be required to leave their clubs on Monday 27 December.

Gameweeks 20 and 21 could also be affected, then, and possibly even the Newcastle United v Manchester United match in Gameweek 19.

And anyone involved in the final or third-place play-off on Sunday 6 February would surely be doubtful for Gameweek 24, which takes place on Tuesday-Wednesday 8-9 February.

Even at this late stage, there is still some uncertainty over when star names will depart.

Rob Harris reported on Thursday evening that the World Leagues Forum, of which the Premier League is a member, had written to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) saying that their clubs wouldn’t release players for AFCON until January 3.

There had been earlier reports that Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) has been given permission to face Chelsea in Gameweek 21 before leaving for Africa.

For others, a departure after Gameweek 20 seems likely.

Tim Spiers reports that is the case for Romain Saiss (£5.0m) at Wolves, while James Benge suggests that Arsenal are trying to agree on a similar exit date for Thomas Partey (£5.0m).

PREMIER LEAGUE PLAYERS AND TEAMS AFFECTED BY AFCON 2021

Over 30 players from 16 clubs could be representing their respective nations at AFCON in January.

Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Watford look set to be the worst hit, with four or more players on international duty.

Leeds United, Newcastle United, Norwich City and Tottenham Hotspur are the four teams that won’t be affected by the tournament in Cameroon.

There are some big names in the below list, the most notable of which is Mohamed Salah (£13.1m).

The 71%-owned leading points-scorer in FPL is one of three Liverpool players who are set to be missing in January and possibly the beginning of February, with Sadio Mane (£11.9m) and Naby Keita (£5.0m) set to turn out for Senegal and Guinea respectively.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£9.6m), Maxwel Cornet (£5.9m), Edouard Mendy (£6.2m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m), and Said Benrahma (£5.9m) are also stand-out names in the table we’ve put together below:

    If you could only have one player for this GW who would it be? Cost irrelevant.

    A. Bruno
    B. Foden

      Bruno as I think he’ll play.

    5. Super Saints
      • 5 Years

      Salah to Bruno then back to Salah?

  2. Rocket Raccoon
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Who has the best chance of starting v Newcastle - Greenwood or Lingard? Only have 7.3 to spend.

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Green

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Greenwood

    3. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Greenwood but i wouldn't be confident of that.

    4. Rocket Raccoon
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Cheers, guys

    5. The Senate
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      probably neither. if you were desperate for an MU mid under 7.3 then (seriously) Fred is your only option

    6. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Neither will start.

  3. boombaba
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    FH draft

    Ramsdale (Steele)
    James Cancelo Dalot Telles (Reguilon)
    Son Mahrez Martinelli Odegaard (Ramsey)
    Kane Ronny (Broja)

    Thought's?

    1. Flynny
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I'd have bowen rather than ode

      Not sure on mahrez. Would aim for kdb

  4. marpy016
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Feel like this is a FH scenario (1FT, 0.3 ITB):

    DDG
    James - Cancelo - Alonso - Livra
    Foden - Bernardo - ESR
    Watkins - Antonio - Dennis*

    Bachman* - TAA* - Salah* - Jota*

    With doubts over ESR, Antonio & Foden, thoughts?

    1. boombaba
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I probably would. I can field 10 but mostly junk.

  5. tissae
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Those going for Son + Ronaldo, what is your way back to Salah?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      They'd have to reverse the transfers and take further hits.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      If one sells Salah this week I think that’s it until Feb.

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      FH

  6. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is Rashford (c) madness? No easy way to get Ronaldo in and I fancy a United midfielder against Toon rather than Son.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes, he is rubbish

      1. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        lol cheers. Do you think Son will do well v Palace?

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I think spurs are on the way up right now, I fancy son for a return and he also looks good long term

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Which mid?

    3. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't say it's madness but it's definitely a big risk. Could pay off though if you're lucky.

    4. Shattered Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I don’t think Rashford’s played well for a long time now. He is talented and he could hit form at any time, though!

  7. The Senate
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    How do you pick one of Kane/Son? Just go for the one with pens?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Son has the form, Kane has the stats but no end product at the moment.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think they both have pens. But I’d get Son. I picked the better player.

    3. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Get Son. Kane will let you down

  8. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    If it click on the tweet icon still nothing comes up?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      It sometimes does, sometimes not. Been like that for too long

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeh. Sometimes work but mostly nowt

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Dunno. You tell me.

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Does it work for you ?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Just tried, it doesn’t. But then it hasn’t worked for weeks.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      It puts the lotion on its skin....

  9. Arteta
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Ramsdale (Sanchez)
    Cancelo James Reguilon Livramento (Alexander-Arnold)
    Foden Saka Gallagher (Salah Jota)
    Lacazette Watkins (Dennis)

    2.7 in the bank and one free transfer. Any ideas what to do here?
    I don't think Free Hit is needed if we're done with postponemenets.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Salah Dennis > Bowen Ronaldo

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Worth it still if it stops you from getting Son next week?

  10. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    If you sell salah for son do you really need to captain him over City assets?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Probably as more nailed unless it's Cancelo

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yeh maybe salah to son (c) is the way to go

  11. Cheeto__Bandito
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Are there press conferences on christmas day? Need antonio news from Moyes

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      3 today

      1. Cheeto__Bandito
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        not moyes though

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Conte Smith & Viera I believe

          1. Cheeto__Bandito
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 5 days ago

            yes so irrelevant

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes, really need those 2pts.

  12. BrockLanders
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Would you FH this or just ESR to Bowen?

    DDG/Ramsdale
    Dalot, B.Davies, Alonso, Cancelo
    Gallagher, ESR, Bilva
    Watkins, Wilson, Pukki

    Bench: Salah, Jota, TAA

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Anyone?

    2. Cheeto__Bandito
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      no, seems like it can be much more valuable later with all these postponements

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I wouldn’t free hit. Tempted to save the transfer.

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Not swap ESR for Bowen?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I’m happy with ESR. Keeps on bringing home the bacon.

    4. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No don’t FH - shame losing ESr

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I know, but he a starting risk and those cameo goals will dry up surely

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Yeh guess so - I just have other fires to put out

  13. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Cap Ronaldo or son?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ronaldo based on the opponent defence

    2. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes

    3. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ron

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks

    4. Finding Timo
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ron

  14. Big Mac 24
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    How does this look for an aggressive Free Hit team? I’m missing TAA MO Jota plus Dennis & King, so only 9 players - don’t want to get rid of Salah)

    De Gea
    Reguilón Cancelo Dalot
    Smith Rowe Son Bowen KDB Martinelli
    Ronaldo Kane

    (Gunnarsson Lowton Tsimikas Simms)

    1. boombaba
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Swap ESR for Odegaard. ESR played 90 mins midweek - maybe a doubt

      1. Jam0sh
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        ESR played 80 mins and Odegaard 73.

      2. Big Mac 24
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That’s a good hint, have to check the finances - although I was happy with ESR and his performances from the bench of late, could be wicked against tiring Norwich legs …. 50/50 call.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Looks great but I have a feeling that Kane-Son-Reguilon combo may disappoint this week

    3. DAZZ
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think Son and Reguillon might be enough, perhaps Kane > Wood and use the 5M to upgrade the rest of the team, perhaps ESR > Another city mid

      1. Big Mac 24
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Are my thoughts too, but Kane is streaky and could’ve had 3 v Liverpool and on pens, it’s all about getting that first haul with him and this week could be it!! Hence why I’m willing to risk with FH but not yet transfer him in for 12+ and 2 pts!

        1. DAZZ
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Im currently on Kane this my current 11.

          De Gea
          Reguilon Cancelo Tierney Dalot
          KDB Son Martinelli Bowen
          Ronaldo Kane

          Kane > Wood and upgrading my 5th mid to a 3-5-2 is an alternative

          1. Big Mac 24
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I could upgrade ESR to Mahrez if I go Kane to Wood, plus could upgrade two of bench to playing subs in care of any postponement.

            1. boombaba
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              I am on

              Ram
              Reguilon Cancelo James Dalot

    4. Milkman Bruno

      Starting XI is great

    5. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Mahrez over KDB?

  15. Kodap
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Any help appreciated.

    What would you do with this lot? Got 1FT and 0.3m in the bank, can currently field 10 if I bench my Liverpool players, who's my best option to shift out for free here to field 11?

    Ramsdale
    Lamptey - James - Rudiger - Cancelo
    Son - ESR - Bilva - Salah
    Broja - Lacazette

    Bachmann - TAA - Jota - Dennis

  16. bigbadbony

    Ramsdale, (foster)
    Cancelo,James,rudiger,liv (taa)
    Foden,esr,salah (jota,raph)
    Antonio,Watkins,Dennis

    Salah,Dennis to Ronaldo,martinelli look like by best option for a -4? Hopefully have 11 starters then.

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Looks good that

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nice move.
      Not planning to get Son?

      1. bigbadbony
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yes but not this week, see how many minutes foden gets and then make that call

  17. evilfish
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Which pair scores highest?

    a) Ronado (c), Gallagher (-4)
    b) Son (c), Manquillo

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      A

    2. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Probably B

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      B

    4. evilfish
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Thanks. If I go B, worth taking a hit to get a better starter than Manquillo?

    Pope (If game on) OR Fabianski
    Cancelo Tierney James (Dalot Tsimi)
    Bowen Mahrez DeBruyne Son Martinelli
    Ronaldo Lacazette (Scarlett)

    FH team 0.0 itb
    Thoughts?

    Would you downgrade Pope to Sanchez to improve 5th defender??

    Would you hold and roll FT with this lot or make changes?

    1FT 0.4ITB
    Ramsdale
    Alonso Cancelo Duffy
    Saka Bilva Foden Gallagher
    Laca Watkins Pukki

    Foster / Salah / TAA / Nouri

      Similar to me above. Probably just roll but postponements could change that

      Thanks both... agreed to hold! Although the deep urge to take hits is building!! Aha

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It's the threat of no bench. But good chance they all start.

        1. Junks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Exactly that! Very tough... saw your squad above and would probably hold as well. I’m a United fan so trying my best to resist Ron! Ha

  20. RamaJama

    Which option?

    A) Salah to Son
    B) Raphina to Bowen
    C) Salah/Dennis to Bowen/Ronaldo

    C would require -4 to get Ronaldo next week

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Like B

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    Worth considering Kane on FH or go with Laca/Wood?

    1. BrockLanders
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I'd def consider Kane on FH

    2. DAZZ
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Consider Kane. But Kane > Wood is an option going with CR7 Wood and using the Kane money to upgrade 5th MF.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Well this game week or next.

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      As I already summarised. You have less than 4 days to use it. So some time then.

        Is GW20 the last chance?

        I always think it’s 19, having never held on to it longer than six or seven weeks.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Depends on how you phrase it. Essentially both are correct, sort of. But basically it has to be used before the second half of the season begins. So if game week 20 has started, it’s too late. 95hrs 30mins remaining until it’s gone.

  25. We Go Again

    I can field 10 this GW assuming no more postponements. Thinking of doing Salah -> Son and saving my free hits. Anyone else ditching Salah till Afcon is over?

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Lots are

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      About half

  26. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    If there are no more postponements, I am looking at Davis to Broja, playing with 10 and not taking any hits.

    DDG
    Cancelo, James, Alonso, Dalot
    Foden, Bernardo, Martinelli
    Lacazette, Broja

    Sanchez, Salah, Jota, Trent, King

    How does this look?

  27. Rohirrims
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Worth a -8?

    1) Watkins > Ronaldo
    2) Salah > Son
    3) Dias > Holgate or Rudiger > Johnson

    or else can go Salah > Maddison for -4 and keep Dias and Rudiger

  28. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Best move here guys?

    A) King -> 5.8m (Broja)
    B) Jota -> 7.8 (Mount)
    C) Salah -> Son
    D) Salah & King -> Son & (8.3) Watkins [bench Brownhill] (-4)
    E) Salah & Brownhill -> Son & 6.9 (Bowen) (-4)
    F) Free Hit

    Ramsdale
    Cancelo, James, Alonso, White
    Saka, Gray, Brownhill
    CR7(c), Antonio

    1. Milkman Bruno

      A or E maybe.

    A) Salah to son, Antonio to ronaldo (-4)
    B) Salah to bowen, dennis to ronaldo (-4) - difficult to get son in before 22
