Thursday team news: Ings, Coutinho and Mount benched

Double Gameweek 37 comes to a conclusion this evening with three more Premier League matches.

Everton v Crystal Palace gets underway at 19:45 BST, with Chelsea v Leicester City and Aston Villa v Burnley kicking off 15 minutes later.

The match at Stamford Bridge is a bit of a glorified dead rubber but the other two fixtures are of huge importance at the foot of the English top flight, with Burnley and Everton battling to save themselves from the drop.

There is massive interest from a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) perspective, too. Of the 25 players with the highest ‘effective ownership’ (EO) figures in the top 10k, 16 have a fixture this evening (see below) – and 13 of them start:

Danny Ings, Philippe Coutinho and Mason Mount are the only three players in ‘green’ above who are among the substitutes this evening.

Coutinho and Ings drop out of the Villa XI, along with the similarly benched Marvelous Nakamba and the injured Ezri Konsa.

Emiliano Buendía, Calum Chambers, Carney Chukwuemeka and Jacob Ramsey are recalled.

Villa are tonight up against relegation-threatened Burnley, who make only one change from the narrow loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

James Tarkowski is back from injury, as Matt Lowton drops to the bench. The Clarets are again starting in a wing-back system, as they did in north London.

Over at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea make two changes from the FA Cup final as N’Golo Kante and Hakim Ziyech come into the side.

Mount is joined among the substitutes by the fit-again Kai Havertz but Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner are injured and absent.

Kasper Schmeichel returns to the Leicester side this evening, with Kelechi Iheanacho, Daniel Amartey and Luke Thomas also starting.

Out go Danny Ward and Harvey Barnes, both of whom are on the bench, and the missing Youri Tielemans and James Justin.

Frank Lampard’s only alteration to the Everton line-up sees Michael Keane come in to replace the suspended Jarrad Branthwaite.

Patrick Vieira continues his end-of-season tinkering with Palace, as the midfield trio of Conor Gallagher, Cheikhou Kouyaté and Luka Milivojevic are replaced by Jeffrey Schlupp, Will Hughes and Jordan Ayew.

    Vardy & Cout to Bowen & Kane for a -8?

      FML no- if you’re leading let him/her take the risks.

      Cout -> Maddy and save a hit?

    4. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      That lead will turn into a 5 point deficit if you did that. Vardy could be gold this week?!

    5. Cheeto__Bandito
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Depends if we get news on Vardy starting, I think Daka might start over him

    6. KUN+10
      • 7 Years

      Thank you all. Vardy was taken off early so most likely he’ll start?

      Full team below:

      Pickford
      Digne TAA Robbo Amartey Sessegnon
      Cout KDB Son Buendia Maddy

      Richarlison (ars) and Barnes (SOU)

      or

      Nketiah (EVE) and Havertz (WAT) (-4)

      1. Royal5
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 11 hours ago

            Updated now. Rudiger 1 point for TAA and Kulusevski 0 for Diaz 0, could be worse, Kulu could have been mulinus points somehow.

    6. Totalfootball
      • 5 Years

      Havertz a good option?

          I am also a little unhappy. Therefore I ask. Many would say this is a good result. But in reality I am not so happy.

        I had Maddy Captain all week and was recommending him for captain too. Last minute switched to Sonny.
        Was on a free hit and picked Ings over Vardy.
        86 points - 4th straight green arrow
        Happy / Sad

        You know the answer. Well played on your team (maybe more humility required in the future though). Good luck

      Last Man Standing Final Results

      Congratulations to David Dawson or G00LI0 - https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/profiles/g00li0/ has become the 9th winner of the Last Man Standing competition. He beat Chris Costa, Marc O'Neill and Rajko Gojkovic in the final and had 3 points to spare as he would have lost the tiebreaker.

      There were 3513 entrants this season so a fantastic achievement to win and to also be well inside the top 1K overall.

      Thank you to Ragabolly for running the scoreboard and for his role in removing teams & finding qualifying teams. FPL have now made it harder to remove teams via a script so it is a manual process now. LMS will be a smaller comp at any one time (1000 to 1200 teams total with new qualifiers replacing eliminated teams to keep admin work down).

      David wins free FFS membership for the 2022/2023 season and of course bragging rights.

      Hope to see you all involved next season 🙂

        Thanks Torresmagic for organising. And Raga also. Really appreciate all the work you put in to LMS available to us.

        Was very close in the end. I had my eye on bonus points as I felt they might have been the deciding factor.

        Delighted to have my name on the trophy!

      has been 62p agead in ML and just becouse i ddint capitan Richarlsion now i am 41p ahead...

      My oponent:
      1FT 2.9 mil in bank

      Ramsdale,pickford
      TAA, Cancelo, Cash, Ati Nouri, Tsimikas
      Saka, Gordon, Son, Mount, Countinho
      Kane, Mateta,Richarlison

      My guess is that he will do 2/3 transfer (cash + countinho + ?) for -8 or even more

      My team:
      Schmeichel, pickford
      TAA, Cancelo, Laporte, Alonso, Cash
      Son, KDB, Zaha, Countinho, Gordon
      Watkins. Richarlison, Nketiah

      a) KDB to Mount and Watkins to Kane is a no brainer.
      b) KDB to Mount and Watkins to Kane and since i belive he take hits Cash to James and Coutninho to Kulu for -8

      If he dont take hits that reduces my lead to only 33p

      With is beter? ;x

      3 points behind my rival and already done salah > son. What do you reckon?

      Ramsdale
      Robbo James Matip
      Maddison Son (C) Saka KDB Mount
      Toney Richarlison

      Foster/Fofana/Nketiah

      Reckon he'll captain Son too, and also has Mount/Richarlison/James so worth a -8 for below options of hold?

      A) Robbo + Richarlison > Sessegnon + Kane
      B) KDB + Richarlison/Nketiah > Bowen + Kane

    13. McGurn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years

      Well done to anyone who picked Maddison (especially if you captained). With the rotation risk, very brave and well rewarded. Considered it but bottled it. Fair play.

        Part of a -12, the only part that paid off.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years

          25 (or 50?) is a great outcome though!

            25, Ing(c) was the real bad part 🙁

              Unlucky, still doing good though.

                3 months, 9 hours ago

                FH34 killed the season. If only it was FH37.
                Probably a -8 to finish GW38

                  Yeah. Despite all our planning, luck is probably the most significant part! GW 38 is unpredictable so can often change things so much. Good luck!
