        1. Baps hunter
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          He gets the assist, not Tsimikas

    • Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Given to Matip, no assist on FPL

    • Total Foot 5 - romario 11
      • 8 Years

      Got lucky, will have maddison coming in from bench for l.diaz anyone else..

      1. bloomooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Alt Nouri coming on for Diaz!

    • Reacher
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Matip non owner, very clear kwp heads it first onto Matips head who scores

        Matip goal

        1. Reacher
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Well said and I agree

    • Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Back to back goals from my boy Matip. What a man

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        2 months, 22 days ago

        Even better with his EO!

    • dunas_dog

      One needs to go for Sessignon if I bring Kane in- who would you move out?

      A Cancelo
      B James
      C Robertson

      1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Difficult to answer that right now. I'd just ignore Kane and use the FTs somewhere else if that's your only way to get him.

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Tough one
        A I think most likely to concede
        B could play RCB but lots of upside if not
        C seems likely to start now Tsimikas has played

    • keefyefc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Anyone with 3 of Trent/Robbo/Virgil & Salah ?
      How are your benches looking ?

      1. ᴋiɴɢ
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Vardy Barnes and Maddison

        1. keefyefc
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I don't if I believe you
          Why didn't you start maybe at least 2 v Watford ?

      2. Royal5
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Kulu and Schar coming in >:(

      3. Dthinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I have Trent Robbo - sold Salah for vardy. My bench is…not that great…Odegaard Havertz Laporte.

        1. Not again Shirley
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          You have a very high OR. Well done.

    • Roy Hudd
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Get in!! TC Matip punt! (just going with the narrative on here whenever someone scores)

    • Paul Psychic Octopus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      ****. Just seen that Matip is my 2nd sub behind that useless Nketiah.

      1. Mweene
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Same. Let's just pretend he didn't score and be pleased the title race is still on.

    • My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      8.4itb for a mid (-4). My attack is Son, Saka, Martinelli/Cout on bench. Vardy, Jesus.

      Looking at Mount, Maddison, Barnes, Kulu, Bowen, Diaz, Jota? On Mads atm...

    • Cheeky Onion
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      What a legend Matip - both fellas I'm chasing have TAA and I WD'ed Trent out for Super Joel

    • Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I seriously hope for a Diaz sub appearance. But the way my season is going, won't happen.

    • No Need
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Goals on the bench really annoy

    • Kodap
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      So annoying, my first FH draft had Matip, Maddison & Vardy in..
