    Locked in. Let's go!

    Ward
    Trent - Cancelo - Robertson - James - Perisic
    Salah - Saka - Bailey
    Kane (C) - Jesus

    Iverson - Andreas - Dasilva - Archer

    1. Kobayashi

      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Perisic isn't starting, but might make a sub appearance. Guess that's the risk with owning him!

      1. Botman and Robben
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Andreas to the rescue...

        1. Kobayashi
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          I wouldn't put the two of those together in the same sentence, personally.

      2. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        He will start

        1. Kobayashi
          • 3 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          He isn't, though.

          1. Horace Pike
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 2 hours ago

            You don't know for sure mate, likely he doesn't but it's still just a prediction

            1. Kobayashi
              • 3 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              Check out their latest training video below - all players who are likely to start wearing orange bibs, those without are almost definitely substitutes for tomorrow's game.

                Almost

                  • 3 Years
                  12 days, 1 hour ago

                  Only time will tell!

    2. diesel001

      Good team. Lots of template picks so you won't fall far behind early.

    3. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      I've watched the Perisic nonsense gain momentum on here. My siblings work at Enfield, he's fit to play.

      1. Kobayashi
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Their latest training video ('bib theory' if you like) would suggest otherwise.

      2. Hits from the Bong
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        That Spurs ITK O'keefe or someone said otherwise

          Let's see guys.

          Good luck in anycase.

    I' a cat and dislike pooping in my litter tray. does anyone have any advice? Best, Mr Cat.

      Think outside the box

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Nice

    Anyone not have Jesus in their team?

    1. hullcityfan

      I have no Arsenal

      1. Scots Gooner

        I bet you don't have any Hull either.

        1. hullcityfan
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          True

      3. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years

        GG

    2. daftvaper
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Nope. It's a huge opportunity going against him given his ownership

      1. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Opportunity is one word for it…

    3. Chloe Kelly’s Bra
      • 2 Years

      Vardy?

    4. DazF90
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Me!

    5. james 101
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      I have him in my heart.

      Does that count?

  6. DycheDycheBaby
    • 7 Years
    12 days, 2 hours ago

    I kept 1.0 in the bank. Might be really stupid or a smart move long term if the likes of Neto and Perisic become better options than say Bailey and James?

    1. snow pea in repose
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Money in the bank is always good

    2. ZimZalabim

    2. Kobayashi

      As long as its Gabriel, I'll be happy.

  13. Scots Gooner

    Good luck everyone, unless you’re in my mini leagues

  14. D.r.a.c.o

    I am sorry for all the players who did not pay attention to Moyes' presser

    1. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      What did he say?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Probably the bit about West Ham having quite a lot of concerns going into the game.

    2. Hits from the Bong

      Does Scamacca start?

    3. EL TANO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Explain

    4. D.r.a.c.o
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      He said his side has a lot of injuries

    5. Horace Pike
      • 8 Years

      I feel sorry for those who fell for his mind games 😉

  15. PB-THE-VET

    Best of luck everyone!!!! Remember its all a bit of fun!

    1. Ser Davos

      ban 😉

  16. Valar(Keith)
    • 12 Years
    12 days, 2 hours ago

    I think I've spent the least amount on my defense on this site

    4.0 4.0
    TAA Digne Trippier (Cucurella Neco) and 0.5 in the bank for an upgrade to Perisic in 2 to 3 GWs.

    1. Zimo
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      I'm the same
      Ramsdale Ward
      TAA Digne Trippier Neco Patterson with 0.5 itb for Digne to Perisic in GW3

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • 12 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Cheers. Glad I'm not alone. I love the 5 to 5.5(Perisic) defenders this season. Going to be a lot of points in that range.

  17. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years

    Good luck everyone. May this season be good to you and the Gods of fortune shine kindly on your team.

      And you

  18. daftvaper
    • 1 Year
    12 days, 2 hours ago

    So Zinc not playing?

    1. Gubby-Allen
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        I would expect him to. The Arsenal team will be Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Odergaard, Saka, Martinelli, Jesus. Subs are anyone's guess but probably Turner, Tomiyasu, Tierney, Holding, Elneny, Lokonga, Smith-Rowe, Pepe and Nketiah.

    2. tangtastic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      I'm on 0pts so far.

      How is everyone else doing?

        -4

    3. Oscar Slater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I simply cannot wait to activate my wildcard. Hurry up FPL ffs.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

      C'mon the Arsenal!!

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Got 3 arsenal players !!!

    5. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Looking forward to seeing all those FPL content creators' teams where they said one thing and then did another.

      1. Hooky
        • 7 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        I create better content than 99% of them the morning after I've had a vindaloo.

      2. Tomerick
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        They’ve all got the same team anyway as have most of the people watching them.

    6. Stranger Mings
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Benching Neto seems wrong but I played 4 defenders over him (Trent - Walker - trip - Gabriel )!

    7. DeuloRad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Andy has Cucurella 2nd on he bench

      1. Happy Mondays
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Apart from those dumb enough to pay for his advice nobody cares.

        1. Horace Pike
          • 8 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          He was great on Bottom though

        2. DeuloRad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          Chill

          1. Happy Mondays
            • 6 Years

            Totally chilled thanks. Just stating the truth.

            1. DeuloRad
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              12 days, 2 hours ago

              Chill

      2. The Last Rolo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I had cornflakes for breakfast.

      3. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        thought about it but wouldnt really want till GW3

        1. DeuloRad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          Bit too much money to carry on the bench for me

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

      Not bad, only got 4 players that I wouldn't recognise if they didn't wear tops with their names on.

      1. diesel001
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Ward, N.Williams, Bailey, Archer?

        1. Hairy Potter
          • 7 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          Ward, Bailey, Archer and Dervişoğlu

    9. PartyTime
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      Conte will give his wingbacks 45 minutes each imo. 45 minutes of Perišić could be good

      1. Podge
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        He said he needed match sharpness, he's not getting that on the bench

    10. Botman and Robben
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 2 hours ago

      What is a good GW1 OR? Under 1M?

      1. Podge
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        500k hopefully

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          If you can get under 500k more weeks than not you'll do alright...

          Think i posted gw77k last year gw1 but it's tough going.

      2. diesel001
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Top 2.5m.

        You want to be in the Top 40% and then climb.

      3. Happy Mondays
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        GW1 OR is irrelevant

      4. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        These days? 1 million is good and then cut in half every 5 weeks is generally my aim.

        1. Botman and Robben
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          Good plan

    11. Sailboats

      Why do tweets about players always come out just after deadline ?!

      1. D.r.a.c.o
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 2 hours ago

        Which tweet

        1. Horace Pike
          • 8 Years
          12 days, 2 hours ago

          THAT tweet obviously
