2pm team news: Richarlison starts, Maddison and White miss out

Double Gameweek 36 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) continues on Sunday with Arsenal v Leeds United, Leicester City v Everton and Norwich City v West Ham United.

All three fixtures kick-off at 14:00 BST, with Manchester City v Newcastle United to follow later on.

The big FPL team news arrives at the King Power Stadium, where James Maddison is absent from the matchday squad.

Brendan Rodgers, meanwhile, freshens up his side following Thursday’s exit to Roma in the Europa Conference League semi-finals, with only five players – Kasper Schmeichel, Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Youri Tielemans and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – retaining their places.

Everton name an unchanged XI following their 1-0 win over Chelsea in Gameweeek 35. That means Richarlison is fit to start despite suffering from some soreness in his ankle.

At the Emirates, Mikel Arteta makes just the one change, with Cedric Soares coming in at left-back in place of Nuno Tavares, who drops to the bench. That means Ben White misses out once again because of a tight hamstring.

For the visitors, Diego Llorente returns at centre-back in place of Pascal Struijk. That’s one of three changes, with Daniel James and Joe Gelhardt also in for the injured Stuart Dallas and Rodrigo.

Norwich’s only alteration sees Jacob Sorensen replace Mathias Normann.

As for West Ham, they have made two changes from their Europa League defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt, with Lukasz Fabianski and Said Benrahma coming in for Alphonse Areola and Tomas Soucek.

      I feel you pain, dude. . . 🙁

        your**

    2. SouthCoastSaint

      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Loads in the same boat.

      Well done to those with Nketiah and Diaz.

      A lot of coin tosses and 50/50 calls being punished

    3. Pad Randa (The OG)
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      And Foden on bench. Well done.

    4. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      I'm on 11 from 8 players.

    5. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Well they all have yet to play again. Lets see what happens.

  3. gooberman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Kasper couldnt even muster a save point!

  4. Finding Timo
    • 1 Year
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Guess martnelli didn’t do much today if not in the bonus points ?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      He was the best player on the pitch.

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Oh according to bonus points system 5th

      2. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Hopefully saved for Thursday too. Shame it wasn’t more points but assist better than nothing

  5. SouthCoastSaint
    • 10 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Don’t think I’ve ever needed a captain to show up more than today.

    Horrific free hit with Maddison no show, jota benched. Richarlison assist the best return.

    COME ON KEVIN

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      (C)ancelo here. Let's hope we both haul (and basically no other players do) 😀

      1. Pad Randa (The OG)
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        0-1, Lascelles unassisted goal incoming.

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      You're not the only one struggling I'm on 35 points on BB with just Cancelo to play today.

  6. Arteta
    • 6 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Don't worry, Ramsdale will make up for it when he saves Kane's pen.

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Son is now on pens though 😉

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Ramsdale save from Son pen and Kane follows up with the rebound... 😉

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Leno to start to annoy BBers

  7. Hairy Potter
    • 7 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Skysports: "Frank Lampard is masterminding an escape from the bottom three..."

    Have just sicked up a bit of vomit into my mouth. I know the media wankfest over the likes of Lampard and Gerrard as managers shouldn't annoy me so much.

    1. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      He has done well of late, it has to be said.

    2. ToffeePot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      A month ago they were saying he wasn't up to it
      Deserves the praise

    3. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Gerrard hasn't had many compliments in recent weeks, tbh. More criticism, if truth be told. He does deserve more praise for constructing a Rangers team that has gotten to a European final, though. They're basically all his players and not much money was spent...

  8. Run DCL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    The Everton away end. Not one single “your support is effing sh11t or “is this a library?” No mentions of poverty or politics. Just boss songs, dead loud, about Everton Football Club.

    1. ToffeePot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Hear hear!
      Amazing stuff start to finish

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Pity they couldn't replicate that at Goodison... 😉 😀

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Only been one quiet game at Goodison since Frank came in (the Wolves game).

        It’s been bouncing.

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          The only noise I've heard was at the tail-end of the game against Newcastle. Same for pretty much all Premiership stadiums, though, sadly...

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Fans are playing their part brilliantly.

      Get in btw!

    4. BeWater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      The Howard's Way documentary about the Everton team of the 80s is well worth watching if you haven't seen it.

      1. Run DCL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Seen it! I was in it 😀

        1. BeWater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          Nice one 🙂

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 7 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Now that was a team.

  9. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Sterling's going to grab a double digit haul isn't he.

    1. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      I will be surprised if he ends up with 2 points

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      KDB*

    3. TKC07
      • 2 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Wait for him to be replaced at 59 minutes.

  10. lilmessipran
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Can't wait this season to get over, mentally exhausted week in week out

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Haha indeed

  11. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    How's Gordon playing? Not sure if I should start him next GW

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Playing like a 4.5mid.

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        5.5 Eddie should give him a lesson

  12. wulfrunian
    • 5 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Bowen 2 bonus out of nowhere.

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      3 assists helps

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      FPL were reading the comments on here.

    3. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Someone was pissed off on the previous page so they decided to make his day

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Definitely helped cheer me up

  13. Ruinenlust
    • 4 Years
    15 days, 8 hours ago

    Imagine starting Grealish and Sterling in a must win game. Pep has lost his marbles

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      I still can’t believe he benched Mahrez for those ar*%eholes.

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      He started Mahrez in CL and we know how that ended.

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        It also had him scoring a great goal which was City's only goal

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 12 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          GK made 8 saves and they only managed 1 goal.

      2. Casualspotted
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          He didnt playing last 2 minutes

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 12 Years
            15 days, 8 hours ago

            Perfect time to sub him on today then.

      3. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Sterling is decent tbf. Griliesh I'm not so sure.

      4. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Pep likes to rotate. Period

        1. Big_Andy_GAWA
          • 10 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          I suspected Grealish might start. He has a knack of starting players who have recently received a bit of criticism.

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            15 days, 8 hours ago

            Oh didn't know that. Yeah btw it's not really a big surprise. It's still Newcastle anyway

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Don’t know how Fabio Borges does it
      +48% green arrow to go 543 OR as it stands
      Looking like his worst finish in the last 6 seasons will be 1,965 OR - ridiculous!

        He uses an algo

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          Which one lol?

      2. Well you know, Triffic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Goat

    4. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Grealish should leave City. Doesn't fit the style they play.

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Might be true

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Pep signings usually take a season to bed in. Judge him after next season IMO.

      3. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 21 hours ago

        He’s a great player in an average side and an average player in a great one.

    5. pundit of punts
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Thoughts on Werner + Barnes ➡ Watkins + Zaha for -4? Gives me -

      Schmeichel
      TAA - Cancelo - Alonso - Cash
      Salah - Zaha - Mount - Kulusevski
      Richarlison - Watkins

      Pickford - Nketiah - Saka - Dias

    6. KevsHolidayFund
      • 4 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Is Holgate going to get 3 more bonus system for winning goal?

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Nope, added in game already

        3 - Daka (26)
        2 - Pickford (25)
        1 - Keane (23)
        Holgate (22)
        Castagne (22)

        1. KevsHolidayFund
          • 4 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          Wondering because fpl towers changed Watkins bps yesterday at the end of all games?

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            15 days, 8 hours ago

            That was a different recalculation. Sometimes happens when they input something wrong.

            The goal winning bonus is added during the game now. Doesn't depend on OPTA (other than goalscorer & current scoreline) so added automatically in-play and doesn't need to be readjusted.

            1. KevsHolidayFund
              • 4 Years
              15 days, 8 hours ago

              Thanks for the info even after playing 12years you can learn something new!

          2. Third Eye Vision
            • 9 Years
            15 days, 8 hours ago

            They only change it afterwards for certain other stats, not for winning goal, which as others have said, is added in-game.

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          Pickford made 8 saves and only 7 are accounted for. Not right.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 12 Years
            15 days, 8 hours ago

            7 by Opta.

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        It's already included.

    7. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Play Pope or Kasper?

      1. Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        They are of a similar quality

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          How frustrating

      2. Rik Waller
        • 4 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Kasper the friendly Pope

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          15 days, 8 hours ago

          BB you mean?

    8. DF
      • 8 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Sterling (c)...I'll take 60 mins, would love a clean sheet but boy do I need an attacking return today. Go get em!

    9. Not again Shirley
      • 5 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      I was almost certain Mahrez would start. Fortunately went KDB. That’s not to say Mahrez won’t get loads of points over the GW though.

      1. NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Nice way to jinx Mahrez

    10. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Just saw the 1st Nketiah goal, shambles.

      1. Big_Andy_GAWA
        • 10 Years
        15 days, 8 hours ago

        Yeah. Haven't a clue what the 'keeper was at.

    11. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 8 hours ago

      Pep really doesn't like interviews. I'm sure he used to more engaging in them...

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        14 days, 21 hours ago

        He was great on Wednesday night, very magnanimous. What got him today I’ve no idea spouting horse manure after Newcastle laid down for them and the Toon fans basically said they’d rather City won it. Very unlike him.

    12. SouthCoastSaint
      • 10 Years
      15 days, 6 hours ago

      1 bonus for Kevin

    13. MathGeek
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      15 days, 5 hours ago
