FPL first-draft team reveals: 4-4-2 with Sancho

With Fantasy Premier League (FPL) live for 2022/23, we’re welcoming back our stellar team of Pro Pundits and Hall of Famers for the new campaign.

We’ll be hearing from a different writer every day in the aftermath of the FPL relaunch, to get their thoughts on the pricing and to see their initial picks.

Our contributors will be providing regular articles and team reveals throughout the new season, with only Premium Members able to access every single one.

Next up is Az, who added to his list of top 10k finishes in 2021/22.


Ah, pre-season hype. Of course, a 4-0 drubbing of Liverpool’s reserve squad and a 4-1 victory over Melbourne Victory has got me excited over Manchester United players, who I vowed to avoid just a week ago.

The thing is, with “big at the back”, Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), Erling Haaland (£11.5m) and Pedro Neto (£5.5m) featuring in almost every draft I see, I am looking for ways in which I can differentiate my squad a little bit.

I always like to have at least 2-3 players who I can get a bit excited about when I watch them play (usually before the crippling disappointment sets in). My first draft video for Fantasy Football Scout over on YouTube for example had me talking up the prospects of Chelsea-bound Raheem Sterling (£10.0m). I’m still very much sold on the new Blues recruit, but of course, when you see what taking out a premium-priced player for the rest of your squad can do, there is temptation.

So, I’ve traded Sterling out for Luis Diaz (£8.0m), who watchers of my “Who is the best £8.0m midfielder” video will know I rated as my top pick in his price bracket. A popular choice on the FFS boards, I’m backing him to have a stellar campaign after his immediate impact when signing for Liverpool in January.

MAN UTD PLAYERS

Using this money, I’ve then been able to upgrade one of my heroes of last season, Bruno Guimarães (£6.0m), who sits in a whopping 20% of all teams at the time of writing. In comes Jadon Sancho (£7.5m). Now I know full well this is off the back of some, quite frankly, meaningless pre-season friendlies. However, when I initially saw his price tag of just £7.5m (a huge £2.0m down from £9.5m last season) my curiosity was piqued. To have any chance of success in the Premier League next season, Erik ten Haag will need to get the absolute best out of Sancho, who managed 38 goals and 51 assists in his time at Borussia Dortmund but struggled in his maiden season in England.

A big factor in my decision as to whether or not to start with Sancho will likely depend on what happens with talismanic figure Cristiano Ronaldo (£10.5m). Rumours continue to swirl that he isn’t happy at the club, but in truth, it is my belief that his presence in the team negatively impacts the assets around him. If we see Ronaldo depart the club, might we see Anthony Martial (£7.0m) or even Marcus Rashford (£6.5m) lead the line for the Red Devils? If this happens, ten Haag’s new “press high, play aggressively” approach would likely see United’s cut-price attackers back on the radar. However, if Ronaldo sticks around and the team remains glued to feeding the 37-year-old, I fear their assets may be dead weights once again.

I want to see a bright, bold and attacking United side. While Ronaldo’s goals were crucial for Manchester United finishing semi-respectably, my sense is that his general presence in the team hindered those around him. A perfect example of this was the 3-0 win against Spurs last season, in which he scored all three goals. However, United’s general play was really poor, and they simply relied on moments of brilliance from the Portuguese superstar. Looking at Ronaldo’s defensive contributions for example, over the season, he made just two interceptions across all matches (equal with Edinson Cavani who played just 162 minutes). In terms of tackles, Ronaldo’s total of 12 paled to the likes of Diogo Jota (£9.0m; 81), Ivan Toney (£7.0m; 59) and even the likes of Neal Maupay (£6.5m; 31). In fairness to Ronaldo, Spurs forward Harry Kane (£11.5m) didn’t show massive difference in his stats, with just three interceptions and 26 tackles. However, Kane created nearly double the number of chances (49) compared to Ronaldo (26), highlighting the impact he has on the players around him. No player had a better mins/shot than Ronaldo last season (22.3), but it’s likely these will be shared more around the team if he was to drop out, with Sancho (hopefully) reaping the rewards.

      I'm on 2 for whatever that's worth. Robbo is one of the best values in the game year in and year out, and given LIV fixtures to start the season it's a no-brainer for me

  2. 15men1cup

    Having a little play around with a Salahless team and I have to say its interesting.

    Raya, 4.0
    TAA, Cancelo, James, Tripper, (Cash)
    Dias, Mount, Foden, Saka (Andreas)
    Haaland, Jesus (Greenwood)

    0.5 ITB

    any 8.0 that suits.....but you get the idea

    Solid bench, relatively strong across the board.
    Defenders are basically Mids and Mids are basically attackers, most on set pieces.

    And I you consider that Haaland is world class striker for the team that scores the most goals in the league most seasons, he could be a set and forget captain. plenty of 3,4,5 plus goals in a game for the team.

    Thoughts

    1. Bring back Rafa
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 4 hours ago

      I’d take Robbo over Cancelo if I only had 2 L’pool players for sure

    2. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Looks as good as anything else I've seen on here. Good luck

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pick Salah over Haaland, and you have a certain starter.

    4. Albrightondknight

      Nice team.
      I think having as many 8.0 mids as possible will become more popular before the season kicks off.
      I have a draft below with Salah and 3 * 8 mids not 4
      And I just don’t have Haaland and you don’t have Salah.

    5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      Very good overall, captaincy is the only issue, but like you said, Haaland could be a perma cap.

    6. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 1 hour ago

      I think a Salah-less team has to have Son in it.
      Otherwise, it is a great looking team on paper.

  3. 15men1cup
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    or down grade Tripper and Cash to Nico and Tomiyasu and upgrade mount for Sterling

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      doesnt sound good to me ears

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 1 hour ago

      I’d keep trippier cash and Mount.

  4. Differential C (Mark)
    • 6 Years

    Rasmus Kristensen, give the hard man a chance lads.

    > 7 goals 3 assists in 29 league games for RB Salzburg in 21/22
    > Averages 1.5(0.61) shots(on target) per 90,
    > Already playing well in pre-season, popping up in advanced positions and tenacious in his tackle as well. A huge upgrade on Ayling.
    >Only face 2 top6 teams in the first 8, and he rotates well with 4m NFO wingback Neco Williams, who helps Kristensen dodge the United and Chelsea games in GW3 and 8. A Neco/Kris rotation cost just as much as a 4.5m defender rotation, and at that price you're probably looking at CBs/non-attacking fullbacks.
    > Defence SHOULD improve with the inclusion of Tyler Adams and Roca in center midfield, keeping in mind Kalvin had a really poor season in 21/22, which contributed a really poor showing in the back. Marsch has also made them more solid since he came anyway.

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      You make a good argument for your diff. But will remain a diff with the other options at a similar price.

    2. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 1 hour ago

      If he was 4.5m he’d be straight in my team. He looked good in the Leeds vs Villa game in Brisbane yesterday. I reckon he’ll pick up a few yellows though! Doesn’t shy away from challenges.

      1. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 21 mins ago

        Agreed with this, was hoping he'd be 4.5 but hard to justify the extra with the options available at both price points

  5. Bring back Rafa
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 4 hours ago

    With the early ‘change entire team’ coming in GW 16 would it be crazy to start with a team with just the first 2 GWs in mind, with a view to an early WC?
    I think we can learn a lot after even just one GW this year, that we don’t know now, like;
    1. Are Chelsea playing wing-backs
    2. Who looks like first-choice for Leister full-backs.
    3. First choice Arsenal attackers
    4. Does Sterling change Chelsea’s system
    5. Zincenko full-back or centre mid

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 4 hours ago

      No it is not crazy to plan for an early WC

    2. Differential C (Mark)
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 4 hours ago

      Im looking at WCing in 8 during IB but yeah, I think we can just WC at any point when our teams go south and we need a quick fix, because of the unlimited transfers in GW16.

      I think Chelsea are determined to play wingbacks but like it depends if they get their CB targets.
      People say Justin is the favorite but I really like Pereira/Castagne as the starters. They both were the top choice during Leicester's Europe run last season while Justin Thomas were the league fullback duos.
      Jesus and Saka are the main people there, rest arre a little unpredicatable.
      Not really, Raheen should slot in at LW. Wonder if that means Werner takes up the CF spot again.
      Centre mid, for sure.

    3. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 4 hours ago

      It's not crazy - It's a valid strategy. However, I'd advise against WC GW2 as you'd be better waiting for the transfer window to close.

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

        Curious to see what your team looks like Andy

        1. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Utterly bog standard. Players you see in all the drafts. And Bailey.

    4. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      It’s not a crazy strategy at all. Best case scenario you plan that early but it goes amazing well and you don’t feel you need the very early WC 🙂

    5. jia you
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      That's what I'm likely doing and might even BB GW1 just to add another level of craziness...than again I often boost in GW1

  6. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 3 hours ago

    Ok this might be a bit different and my first draft without 5 at the back it’s 451
    Obvious cons no Haaland or Kane /Son and if Jesus doesn’t play I get 10 out.
    But this is based on 4 strong defenders, Salah perma C + 3 * 8 mids and a nice 6.5 spot for Rashford /Wilson etc
    Basically go after the value in defenders and mid spots.
    With so many choices with these 8.0 mids is it a viable strategy to only transfer these spots? Or would it end up like GK rotation where you always pick the wrong ones.

    Anyway here is the draft. It’s not about the personnel right now just the price points and .5 ITB to allow for Bowen in or price rises.

    Henderson

    Trent Cancelo Laporte James

    Salah Diaz Mahrez Kulu Rashford

    Jesus

    4.0 Neco 4.5 4.5

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      Great team

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 3 hours ago

        Big if but if injuries etc were not an issue do you think using transfers only on the 4 non Salah mid spots - based on fixtures is viable?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          28 days, 3 hours ago

          Absolutely

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      Two non starting 4.5 forwards & Neco as your only starting sub … with rotation risked Laporte Mahrez Kulu Rashford … gonna be a fun ride 😉

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 3 hours ago

        Risk it for a biscuit
        . 5 ITB could be used for a small upgrade on Neco
        But I might actually use the .5 ITB and Rashford to a 6.0 spot to go Laporte Robertson.

    3. DARWIN'S DINOSAURS

      I quite like it mate.

  7. Donny_Rover
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 3 hours ago

    Pretty pleased with the latest draft, any other thoughts here? Keeping an eye on Rashford, think the easiest way to get him in would be Ederson & Neto -> Raya/Meslier & Rash, or possibly James/Chilwell -> Tierney/Cash/Cucu

    Ederson 4.5
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell James Williams
    Salah Diaz Neto Bailey Da Silva
    Haaland Jesus Archer

    1. Donny_Rover
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      *Sub keeper should be 4.0!

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      Ederson is a waste of money and waste of a City slot
      Just my opinion.. other than that, Strong team.

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 3 hours ago

      I would not go Ederson it blocks you from a third City. Believe me I have been there and having to use 2 transfers to get out of it is annoying. Just get a 4.5, loads of great options and spend the money on that midfield.

    4. warchild
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      im not a fan of 2 chelsea def, so yeah RJ/BC ->someone lower price, for rashford.
      i suggest JWP over rashford.
      go for ederson if u like it, 5.5m is not really waste for someone who can deliver 150+ pts over 2 seasons, besides i dont see any other city asset who can be trusted, besides haaland, KDB, cancelo. which is u cant afford them easily.

    Roast My Toast

    Sacnhez

      You know that you need info on a few of the picks during pre season to ensure they are nailed etc, as they have competition for a place, so I won’t comment further except to say they could be great diffs.
      Considering it has 3 big hitters it looks good.
      I have never got points from Sanchez always own him at the wrong time.
      And I think the Liverpool defence has proven itself for enough years now that I would not be going without at least 1 of them.
      Thanks for reply above totally different teams but I like both. Pricing has been criticized this year but I think it’s fun we can have so many good players. Does it make it easier for “casuals” - maybe. But if we can’t beat them with the same budget then we are the “casuals” 🙂

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 3 hours ago

        pretty sure it will change again, mate!
        But I'm now leaning towards three big hitters, and no Liverpool defender is the price for that, at the moment.
        I do rate Trent and Robertson very high as everyone else do... Just cant have them all.

    Do you agree that salah + haaland destroys balance?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      No

    2. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      "Balance" is overrated, like 'value'. It's 'balance' that kept people tied to 343 long after it became obsolete.
      It's like saying temperatures are x degrees higher than normal, when the "normal" hasn't been normal since 1985.
      Just go for maximum points.

      1. Emiliano Sala
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 2 hours ago

        I know. I just mean with salah + haaland you have to pick 2 weaker player in you starting squad imo

    3. DARWIN'S DINOSAURS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      It depends what you mean by balance. Is Kane Son Sterling Jesus Diaz etc likely to outscore them; maybe not; maybe yes, so you can put money in other areas. If it means the balance in terms of positions; I would not worry about it too much. FOMO is playing too larger part IMO this season. Play the game for fun and see what turns out. If Haaland gets a brace and Jesus fails for example; so what; it will be 30 points to make up and not the end of your season.

      1. Emiliano Sala
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 2 hours ago

        thanks for your comment. I think haaland is a must and cheap by 1.0 tbf.
        by balance I mean:

        Salah + Neto + Jonny
        or
        Diaz + Foden + Diaz
        this is meaning of balance in squad.
        by selling salah you can upgrade 2 other players.

        1. Emiliano Sala
          • 6 Years

    Sancho or rashford?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Neither

      Patience I think.

  12. Santi MMT

    No Salah and only 1 premium
    Big at the back

    Ederson
    Trent Robbo Cancelo Chilwell James
    Diaz Mount Mahrez
    Kane Jesus

    Bench fodders

    1. Emiliano Sala

      Strong. Not a fan of mahrez at all

      1. Santi MMT
        • 9 Years

        Should start the season at RW

    2. DARWIN'S DINOSAURS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      I like it. Just remember a lack of big hitter in the midfield might add to transfer woes but not the end of the world. You will be 3 mil plus or in the top 250k depending on results.

      1. Santi MMT
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 1 hour ago

        Yes. Go big or go home.

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 2 hours ago

      Hard to find a weak spot in that but the bench is fodder and probably will be needed. GK is the only one that I will have outside of top 4-6 teams to start. Maybe a downgrade there for bench upgrade ?

      1. Santi MMT
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 1 hour ago

        Maybe i can do one of Chilwell/James to Cash/Trippier or Ederson to Ramsdale/Pope

  13. Emiliano Sala
    • 6 Years
    28 days, 2 hours ago

    not a single draft with DDG

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      wonder why

    2. AndyLet'sNotTalkSocial
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 1 hour ago

      Seriously, United's attacking assets have potential (only if CR7 is out of the picture), but their defence needs more than Martinez to have confidence in.

    3. Santi MMT
      • 9 Years

      Dont think they will keep many CS

      Is he even nailed?

        I considered him but I'd need to see where he plays alongside Bruno. He may sit deep as a playmaker - great for United but not a great FPL asset.

    Broja at 5.5 at WH. Any takers if it goes through?
    Don’t think he would be nailed.
    But maybe at option over fodder for anyone going with 1 up top?

      Sorry I should have gone with “not a single draft…. “

      I think it's a shout when their 1st inevitably gets injured

      He'll get very high ownership, unless Undav hits the ground running. Antonio will quickly get crocked or lose form, so Broja should get enough gametime for a 5.5. Would be ideal 2nd striker to a Kane or Haaland, yeah.
      Newcastle are also going for him, with Wilson also having a risky injury record and Wood being a flop.

    Thoughts on current balanced draft

    4.5
    TAA - Robbo - Cancelo - James
    Salah - Saka - Neto - Bailey
    Kane - Jesus

    4 - Neco - Andreas - Archer

      Looks good. Same as mine except I have kovacic and mount over saka and bailey.

        great minds

      Really like the 4-4-2 set up. Looks like the way to go rather than 5 atb. Gives you much needed balance with 2 guaranteed starters in bench.

      The only change I would make here is to have more city presence than arsenal. So I would be getting Mahrez/grealish instead of Saka

      1. klopptimusprime

        27 days, 23 hours ago

        Think it's where I'm going to go, and is very flexible if anyone gets injured/becomes a worse option before the start of the season

        Also Saka is a great pick, but just a placeholder before city's pre-season. Hopefully have more insight by August!

    And headlining with Jota injury !!

      If it's prompting you to pick Diaz, Jota needs to be out for more than one gameweek!

    This is my current draft I have been tinkering with.

    Would you go Robertson instead of TAA in order to upgrade Ait Nourri to a 5M defender (Cash, Trippier)

    Sanchez

    TAA / Chilwell / Laporte / Ait Nourri

    Salah / Diaz / Mount / Martinelli

    Kane / Jesus

    Caballero | Andreas | Williams | Archer

    Thanks

      Like it a lot, just will be a worry GW2 not captaining a City player. Personally doing something similar but Cancelo over Laporte so he can realistically be captained

        Cheers, plan was to bring in Haaland in GW2, also mount can also become Foden.

        Still unsure if going Laporte over Cancelo is the right move? If I go Cancelo it means I cannot have 2 x 8M midfielders.

          I think Laporte is great cover for Cancelo and think you can get away with him if you have another City player (or are planning on bringing in GW2)

            Reports I have seen on here say he might be injured though?

              Laporte has been in individual training due to a "minor niggle" and he didn't travel for the tour in the US.

              Haaland traveled and is back in training as of today.

    New draft. Is it viable to just pick all the 8m midfielders lol

    Henderson
    Trent, Robertson, Cancelo, James, Chilwell
    Diaz, Saka, Mount, Foden
    Haaland

    4.0, Undav, Andreas, Greenwood

    1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…

      It's definitely interesting. I had an almost identical one with Maddison over Chilwell.

  23. Chan Chan

    Current draft

    Mendy
    TAA, Cancelo, Justin, N.Williams

    b) Kane, Havertz

  24. DortmundisLove

    RMT
    Lloris, 4.0
    Cancelo, Laporte, TAA, Dier, Dunk
    Salah, Sancho, Odegaard, Diaz (Andreas)
    Kane (Greenwood, Taylor)

  25. Y26 Royal

    Been settled on this for the longest than my other drafts so far!

    Ramsdale (4.0)
    TAA, Cancelo, Trippier, Alt-Nouri, (Neco)
    Son, Diaz, Mount, Rashford (Andreas)
    Haaland, Jesus (Greenwood)

    Considering TAA to Robertson so i can upgrade Alt-Nouri to a 5m defender.
    Rashford is a gamble but it's a gut feeling i've had from the start so sticking to it!
    No Salah! I think his points can be matched by Son.
    If Haaland doesn't start strong then quick swap to Kane.

    1. Y26 Royal
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 20 hours ago

      Gotta add that if Ronaldo stays i'll drop Rashford!

  26. Cube
    • 5 Years
    27 days, 18 hours ago

    Which is better?

    A. Haaland + Mount
    B. Son + Calum Wilson

  27. silentdiscodan
    • 2 Years

    Allisson
    Tomiyasu / Walker / Chilwell
    Neto / Maddison / KdB / Diaz
    Darwin / Haarland / Jesus

    Maddison for Bowen in GW2.

  28. bso

    I Tomiyasu seriously injured? Likely to start the season?
