Dias + Maddison injury news as Nketiah stars for Arsenal: FPL notes

We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from Sunday’s four Double Gameweek 36 fixtures in our Scout Notes summary.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-improving website, and our own Premium Members Area.

GOALS, ASSISTS AND BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

Ruben Dias (£6.2m) limped off with a hamstring injury at half-time on Sunday, with Pep Guardiola revealing he will not play again this season, along with Kyle Walker (£5.4m) and John Stones (£5.2m).

“Ruben (Dias), Kyle (Walker) and John (Stones) are out until the end of the season. Next pre-season maybe they will be ready. (Ruben’s problem is) muscular. Not the same position, but hamstring. He has had a problem in his ankle for a long time.” – Pep Guardiola

And with Nathan Ake (£4.7m) also carrying a knock, they could be down to “three defenders” for their trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.

“It happened in the game against Leeds. Still, he (Ake) has a little niggle and doesn’t feel comfortable. Maybe not (ready) for Wolves, but maybe for the next two.

We have Joao (Cancelo), Oleks (Zinchenko) and Aymeric (Laporte). Otherwise we have to play CJ (Egan-Riley) or Luke Mbete.

If Rodri has to play in that position, it is not a problem, or if we have to play someone from the Academy. We have 13 players available for these games. No more than that, plus Academy. 

When we do that, everyone has to do more to help our absences and the problem we have. It is what it is. We arrive with problems. Today we had three defenders in the second half.

Fernandinho played well against Callum Wilson. That’s what we have to do.” – Pep Guardiola

James Maddison (£6.9m) was missing from the Leicester City matchday squad because of a tight hamstring, although Brendan Rodgers did sound fairly optimistic about his chances for Wednesday.

The Foxes boss also issued updates on full-backs Ricardo Pereira (£5.2m) and James Justin (£4.9m), both of whom missed out.

“Hopefully James (Maddison) will be okay for Wednesday. Ricky (Pereira), it’s questionable if he will play over the next couple of weeks. JJ (Justin), you remember he fell on his shoulder at Roma, there’s a dislocation there. We have to see if he’s going to be able to play in any of the other games.” – Brendan Rodgers

Frank Lampard has revealed Yerry Mina (£4.9m) will have a scan on the calf problem he sustained in Sunday’s 2-1 victory at Leicester City on Monday, and says he is hopeful the issue which forced Vitalii Mykolenko (£4.9m) off midway through the second half was “just cramp”.

“Yerry had a small feeling in his calf. We don’t know (how bad it is yet). Hopefully it isn’t a tear. He felt it in his calf, so he had to come off. We’re hoping it’s not a high-level injury and we can keep him involved in the next two weeks. He will have a scan tomorrow (Monday).

With Myko (Mykolenko), we hope it was just cramp. It would be a result if that is the case.” – Frank Lampard

Three players also took a knock for West Ham United, although David Moyes didn’t seem to think they were too serious in the aftermath.

Mick’s (Antonio) got a bit of a knock on his hip. Dawson took one in the calf, and Said’s (Benrahma) could have been his ankle – I’ve not had the chance to see it yet – so hopefully they’ll all be okay. I don’t think they looked that serious.” – David Moyes

Bukayo Saka (£6.7m) is “fine” according to Mikel Arteta despite his 67th-minute withdrawal, while Ben White (£4.6m) has a chance to feature on Thursday.

“I think so, he’s started to do a little bit of work on the pitch and we want everyone available for that game because it’s so important. – Mikel Arteta on Ben White

Mathias Normann (£4.5m) missed out due to a thigh injury at Norwich City, while Luke Ayling (£4.3m) will miss the rest of Leeds United’s season after picking up a straight red card against Arsenal.

FPL TALKING POINTS

NKETIAH AT THE DOUBLE

The most-bought player for Double Gameweek 36, Eddie Nketiah (£5.5m), started his fifth successive Premier League match for Arsenal on Sunday, and responded to Mikel Arteta’s call by netting another brace.

The cut-price forward has now produced 29 points in his last four outings, posting team-leading totals for goal attempts (17), shots in the box (12), efforts on target (nine), big chances (four) and penalty box touches (26) in that time.

As for Arsenal, they will head into Thursday’s north London derby four points clear of Tottenham Hotspur, knowing a win will secure Champions League football for 2022/23.

“We know that and we have earned the right to play that game in that context. We started the season with nine or 10 players out and playing the best two teams in Europe. Winning any match is extremely difficult. We are going to prepare for the game as best as we can.” – Mikel Arteta on Thursday’s north London derby and knowing victory will seal a Champions League spot

However, despite conceding just three shots to Leeds United, they still failed to keep a clean sheet and have now gone seven top-flight matches without a shut-out.

MESLIER AND AYLING’S ERRORS

Leeds United edged closer to relegation on Sunday as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at the Emirates.

And it was a first-half horror show which cost them, with ‘keeper Illan Meslier (£4.8m) gifting Nketiah his opener after he failed to control a backpass, before Luke Ayling was sent off for a reckless challenge after VAR intervention.

Worryingly, the Whites’ goal difference now stands at -35, compared to relegation rivals Burnley and Everton, who are on -17 and -19 respectively.

Their next game is at home to Chelsea on Wednesday, before they round off the season against Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford.

“I think we had a really bad start and dug a hole for ourselves which we didn’t need to. At half-time we talked about keeping our composure and treating the game like it was 0-0. That’s what we did. Obviously, we are in a difficult situation. We have now lost two right-backs for the season in two matches. We have to regroup and figure out what we can do. Our backs are against the wall. We are in the relegation zone but we have to fight for our lives. When I came here two months ago I knew this was not going to be easy. The group has stayed strong. Our second-half performance highlights the character of the people we have here. The fans and the support at this club is unreal. We want to put a performance on the pitch that honours that support.” – Jesse Marsch

In terms of their FPL assets, the two most popular – Raphinha (£6.3m) and Joe Gelhardt (£4.7m) – had days to forget for differing reasons. The Brazilian struggled to get into the game, was booked and then replaced in the second-half, while budget forward Gelhardt – making his first Premier League start since the reverse fixture against Arsenal in December – was sacrificed early in the wake of Ayling’s red card.

IN-FORM EVERTON

Everton will head to Watford in midweek on the back of successive Premier League wins, which has seen them move out of the relegation zone with a one-point safety cushion.

Despite having the worst away record in the top flight in 2021/22 with just one win and three draws from 16 games heading into Double Gameweek 36, the Toffees found a cure for their travel sickness at the King Power Stadium, as they registered a massive 2-1 victory.

Richarlison (£7.5m), who started despite soreness in his ankle, grabbed the assist for Mason Holgate’s (£4.2m) winner – his sixth attacking return in his last seven appearances – but it was undoubtedly Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) who was the star of the show, as he racked up six points despite conceding thanks to six saves and bonus.

“He’s in great form and he’s getting the recognition he rightly deserves. A couple of big saves for us and you need those top-level players to produce. I think we’re building confidence. At Goodison we’ve been great but the away form has held us back.” – Frank Lampard on Jordan Pickford

Mykolenko netted a stunning volley from the edge of the penalty area, his first goal since signing for Everton, and along with Pickford, Richarlison and Anthony Gordon (£4.7m), will be popular targets for Double Gameweek 37, especially for those on a Free Hit.

LEICESTER’S SET-PIECE WOES

Familiar problems were on show for Leicester City at the King Power on Sunday, as they conceded from a corner yet again.

Defending set plays has been a real problem for the Foxes throughout 2021/22: no side has allowed more chances to be created from dead-ball situations, while their expected goals conceded (xGC) tally from set plays is also a league-worst.

“The biggest disappointment was the corner. They had one corner in the game and to concede from that… I changed the system to try to put extra height into the team. We have lacked the profile of player. Today it wasn’t that, it was just sheer determination and the lack of that to defend the ball into the box. That’s on me, I need to keep looking at this year to try to make it right before the summer when we can do something about it.” – Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers’ side have had a difficult time of late and are winless in their seven most recent matches in all competitions.

They also look short of confidence and energy, which is an important factor to consider ahead of their Gameweek 37 double-header against Watford and Chelsea.

BRILLIANT BOWEN

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the impact of Jarrod Bowen (£6.8m) in FPL this season.

The winger supplied a trio of assists for the second time this season against Norwich City, having done so against Watford in Gameweek 20.

As a result, only Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) and Son Heung-min (£11.0m) have provided more attacking returns than the West Ham man in 2021/22, with his current Premier League tally standing at 10 goals and 17 assists.

Michail Antonio (£7.4m), meanwhile, netted his first Premier League goal since New Year’s Day, while Said Benrahma’s (£5.9m) brace of goals was a throwback to the start of the season, when he raced out of the blocks with four attacking returns in the opening two weeks.

CITY BOUNCE BACK

Man City shrugged off the disappointment of their Champions League semi-final exit by claiming a comfortable 5-0 win over Newcastle United.

The victory leaves them three points clear of Liverpool, with a now-superior goal difference and just three games remaining.

“We talked about that at half-time – the importance of the win. It could have been 3-1 (with a big Newcastle chance) and after we scored two goals at the end, there’s a big difference.” – Pep Guardiola on goal difference

Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m), Rodri (£5.5m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) scored in between Raheem Sterling (£10.5m) goals, although it was Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) – deployed in the left attacking channel for much of the game – who was undoubtedly the star performer.

Indeed, owners can count themselves a little unfortunate to end the game with six points, as the Belgian playmaker created three big chances for his team-mates, more than any other player in the Gameweek so far.

    3. POTATO
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      He's just received 27 minutes on the weekend. Should last him till summer.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        And a luxury 10 min rest in the champions league game before that too mate

      2. POTATO
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        But I got a hunch he won't start against Villa.

    4. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Southampton away seems a sensible time

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah wary of this. If he doesnt rest v Villa I'll go for VVD on FH instead

        1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I’ve got Robbo and Tsimikas and FH atm if Robbo rests Tsimikas takes his place

          1. No Kane No Gain
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Not if Robbo comes on for 7 minutes

  3. Corkyote FFS CWC Champion 2…
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Reports on Twitter that Alonso had halftime bust up with Tuchel and may have played last game. Don’t know how reliable the source is but post from @Nathan_Gissing said as much

  4. mcsteely
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Morning all, any suggestions on the best move for this lot? Already got a bench dilemma to start with

    Schmeichel
    Trent Robbo Cancelo Cash
    Salah Son Saka Coutinho Dewsbury-Hall
    Watkins

    Bench: Foster Nketiah Alonso Pukki

    1. Brewstercat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Could you get some Everton in there? Robbo to Laporte, Pukki to Richarlison?

  5. FredrikH
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    No FH left bit painful now I'll admit.
    Exact cash to do Pukki+Foden -> Richarlison+Zaha now. Will probably be priced out before the 2nd set of fixtures are over.
    Would you pull the trigger now or let Zaha go and just replace one of James, Laporte or Robbo with Cash/Digne instead? Thanks.

    1. Silecro
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I would do the latter

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Richarlison is not the sort of player I would ever bring in with the game still to play. Always liable to do something stupid

  6. steven8991
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Which one worth -4?
    A. KDB > Son
    B. Pukki/Dennis > Richarlison/Watkins
    C. Keep KDB, Pukki, and Dennis

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      B could be worth it for 37. Pukki looked luckier than Dennis, but it’s a coin I suppose. Would probably go Richarlison over Watkins too, but could go either way. Ings also an option.

      1. Boberella
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        *livelier, not luckier

  7. D.r.a.c.o
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    FPL team for next season - RMT

    4.5
    TAA Cancelo James Doherty 4.0
    Salah Son Saka Bowen 4.5
    Haaland Mitrovic 4.5

    1. Baines on Toast...
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Haaland price prediction? 13?

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        No way 13 - he will be 11.5

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          then 3m over budget, back to drawing board

        2. Baines on Toast...
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I think that is hugely ambitious. Ronaldo was 12 and this is a nailed on striker for City.

          1. D.r.a.c.o
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Will be around 12 then. 11.5-12 max

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      2.5 overbudget

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        FPL will give us 105m this year due to soaring inflation worldwide 🙂

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Pointless out of 10. Dont you need prices to start this?
      Why not enjoy your (very believable... 😉 ) 104pt gameweek first..?

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Just trying to establish the template for next season....

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Leave that to the professionals please.

    4. ElliotJHP
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Few mil short

    5. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I would rather pick an extra def than get Mitro in my team.

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Marco Silva though

    6. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'd have Olise in there

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I'd rather pick Zaha over Olise/Eze

      2. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Interesting call

        Think he might be next season's Benrahma - can easily see 150 points or so at 6.0. His ppm is sensational and he's only going to get better. And unlike Zaha he picks up baps.

    7. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Saka & Bowen likely due hefty price rises over the summer too, no?

      Still think its a bit of a futile exercise right now, but a few other players on my shortlist for next season:
      Martinelli, Trippier, Chilwell, Luis Diaz, Olise

    8. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Trippier will be in mine. Olise. Nketiah if he stays under 7m

    9. Ooh Ah Cantona
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I was wondering who would be the first person on here I'd see to do a RMT for next season.
      It was Inazuma.

  8. DavidBW
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Why did nobody tell me Mahrez had an on field argument with Pep during the UCL game.

    Wouldn't have got him in. Now he's not going to play again is he?

    1. D.r.a.c.o
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah he's off to the MLS next season

      1. DavidBW
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Really? that'd be massive waste of a career.

        Not Happening

  9. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Which combo is better for BB GW37?

    A- Butland + Cash
    B- Pickford + Emerson Royal
    C- Martinez + Emerson Royal

    Current Backline:

    Sa' XXXX
    TAA Cancelo Alonso Jonny XXXX

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Not sure on the Guaita/Butland situation tbh. Would prefer Pickford & Sessegnon

    2. Boberella

      Pickford

  10. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Zaha the best sub 7 mil mid to get for 37? Or Maddison?

    1. Boz
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      I'm looking at Zaha

      1. Brewstercat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I’ve had Maddison for a bit and he’s so frustrating to own. I’d go Zaha

        1. Brewstercat

      perfect

    5. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      That’s very close to mine. Not sure on Trent, but will prob go with him and have bench cover.
      Want Vardy, but it’s a gamble and would mean no KDB

  14. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Does this look ok?

    Pickford Krul
    TAA Cancelo Matip White Davies
    Salah Son Saka Zaha Gordon
    Kane Weghorst Gelhardt

    Thanks!

    Ramsey likely to play dgw 37 ? really bad timing on that injury

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yes. I am waiting on that news too. this is what Gerrard said though "A big doubt for Tuesday. Got a small groin problem. He [Ramsey] won't be long. We're hoping to get him involved in the squad at Liverpool but that's looking ambitious right now."

        ok doesnt sound good

          • 6 Years

          Even if he recovers don't think he will feature in the first game.

      Unlikely

    Cristiano Ronaldo, RVP, Vardy & Michu are the four strikers that Wikipedia claims are Haaland's inspirations.

    An FPL legend in the making.

  17. Ëð

    FH37 first draft... Any thoughts? Got quite a bit of £ to spare.

    Pickford
    TAA, Cash, Holgate
    Salah, Son, Zaha, Gallagher, Maddison
    Richarlison(c), Watkins

    1. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Lacking City.

  18. tibollom
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    only 5pts behind my ML rival for the moment, hes got KDB (c) and i've got Salah(c).. he also doesnt have a FH for next week.. what's the template FH team atm?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Not hard to find if you scroll up 😉

      1. tibollom
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        aha thanks, will have a look.. in terms of strategy, bearing in mind he doenst have a FH, should I just focus on myself or look to bring in a few players I know he has (Richa, Mylo, Gordon ect)?

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Suppose it depends on whether you're still ahead by the end of the GW, but if so the safe play is probably to block those Everton assets

  19. Gunnerssss

    The change of triple capt from sterling to kdb hurts

    1. tibollom
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      ouch

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      sterling is the ulitmate troll

      1. Gunnerssss
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        As usual

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 9 Years

      I did say Sterling was a great (c) this gwk, you must not have seen lol

  20. drughi

    Ederson, Coady and raphinha > Pickford, Cash and Zaha -8
    ? yay or nay ?

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      not for me. Although think who these guys have on the final day,. Villa and Everton have tough fixtures so it's almost a one week punt

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        ok cheers

    2. Buck The Trent
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yay

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Nay. Ederson & Coady could easily get 12, so a 20pt hole will be a bit of a challenge to dig yourself out of. And then you won't want Cash or Pickford in 38

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        sensible

  21. George James
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Best move here. On BB.

    0.2 ITB 1FT

    Pickford • Sanchez
    James • Alonso • White • Cancelo • Davies
    Salah • Kulu • Ramsey • Havertz • Saka
    Kane • Richarlison • Nketiah

    1. mcsteely
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      If Ramsey is still injured move him to Gordon of Dewsbury. Also Alonso might be out of favour now, so him to Mykolenko

  22. DannyDrinkVodka
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Does this look good in theory?

    James>Cash, Alonso>Digne, Ramsey>Zaha for a -8? Would give me the following:

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Laporte Cash Digne
    Salah KDB Zaha
    Watkins Richarlison

    Foster Saka Nketiah Elanga

  23. Bruno Commando
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Would you FH the current team? Essentially it's choosing between the following:
    A) Schmeichel + Laporte + Matip + Havertz + Saka
    B) Pickford + Cash + Son + Coutinho + Watkins

    Current team:
    Schmeichel
    TAA Cancelo Laporte Matip
    Salah KDB Gordon Havertz Saka
    Richarlison

    Foster James Dennis Pukki
    ______________________

    FH team:

  24. Buck The Trent

    Which one?

    A Pickford Cash Digne
    B Martinez Coleman Digne

    1. Lemongrab

      A for me

  25. Kodap

    Morning guys, if you have one FH left, this week is the week to play it right? If so, who are the must haves on a FH in 37?

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Richarlison, Pickford, Villa Def, Son and Kane

    2. Boz
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah this week. Looks at some of the other RMFHT posts, they are all pretty template.

      1. Kodap
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Is there a way to get to RMFHT posts on here?

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Scrolling?

          1. Kodap
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Well yeah I gathered that much.. it sounded like they might all be in one place haha.

            1. The Mentaculus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Nope just mixed with all comments as usual, but they are dominant atm. Not hard to summarise though, so here you go:
              Pickford
              Cash Digne/Cancelo Robbo/Trent
              Salah Son Zaha Gordon KDB/Kane
              Richarlison Watkins

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 7 days ago

      It is for me, but FH38 is viable if you already have, say, Cash Zaha Pickford.

  26. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    on a FH

    A) Robbo, Ings
    C) Digne, Vardy

  27. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Surprised to see Sky reporting that the Haaland deal is expected to be formally announced this week, I figured this would be left until a few weeks into the break but then again City do seem to like getting deals done early.

    1. Lemongrab
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      No point hanging about, they want to get that release clause paid and the transfer locked in I guess. Absolutely nailed in my fpl team next season.

  28. Catastrophe
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    Advice appreciated - no chips left, 1 FT, 0 ITB.

    Schmeichel
    Cancelo, James, Robertson
    Salah, Son, Coutinho, Kulusevski, Saka
    Watkins, Nketiah

    (Foster, Dias*, Matip, Pukki)

    A) Dias -> Laporte (bench Robertson)
    B) Dias -> Cash (bench Robertson)
    C) Dias & Pukki -> Holgate & Richarlison (-4) (bench Kulu/Nketiah)
    D) Leave Dias to rot / save FT

    Cheers

  29. Atimis

    Must haves on FH?

    I'm thinking:

    Pickford
    Pool def/AV def
    Son/Pool mid/Zaha
    Watkins/Richa

    Not many spots left in it.

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Probably why those who are fairly flush with those players already are thinking FH38

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Agreed mate!! I’m on this atm…

      Pickford
      Robbo Cash Digne
      Salah Son Maddison Zaha
      Kane Watkins Rich
      3.9 Brownhill Clyne Tsimikas

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 9 Years

      Got them all except a villa def, no fh
