FPL review: Mudryk bright, Mitoma v March, Maddison returns

The Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from two of Saturday’s Premier League fixtures are discussed in our latest Scout Notes article.

Here we focus on Liverpool v Chelsea and Leicester City v Brighton and Hove Albion.

The numbers you see in this article are taken from our Premium Members Area, where you can access Opta player and team data for every single Premier League fixture this season.

FALLEN FPL GIANTS

According to LiveFPL’s ownership statistics, the average Fantasy manager in the top 10,000 owns 0.6 Chelsea players and 0.3 Liverpool assets.

We’re a far cry from the days in which our FPL squads were packed full of picks from each side and there was little on show on Saturday lunchtime to further interest in anyone other than Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.6m).

Kepa walked away with yet another haul after supplementing his clean sheet with save/bonus points, taking his points-per-match average to 5.2 – a number that is unbeaten by any other first-choice goalkeeper.

Liverpool seldom threatened Chelsea’s goal with any real quality. Mohamed Salah (£12.8m) was again quiet, having only one shot for the third match in a row, while not one of Cody Gakpo‘s (£8.0m) seven efforts caused much consternation.

Above: Mohamed Salah’s expected goal involvement (xGI) was just 0.10 in Gameweek 21

The Reds’ shut-out – their first since October – arrived more by luck than judgement. Debutant Mykhailo Mudryk (£7.0m) had a couple of clear sighters, Benoit Badiashile (£5.0m) should have scored from a set piece, Thiago Silva (£5.4m) hit the post from close range and Kai Havertz’s (£7.8m) strike was chalked off for a marginal offside.

“Massive, massive. So, directly after the game you cannot forget the chances they had, where we defended in the last seconds with a block. But tomorrow I don’t remember them anymore, it’s just a clean sheet and it feels really good. So, how I said, there are things we have to build on, that’s what we will do.” – Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s clean sheet

Trent Alexander-Arnold‘s (£7.3m) annus horribilis continued: he didn’t even get to benefit from the clean sheet points, with a midweek injury reducing him to a substitute role. A belated return to training also meant that a fit-again Darwin Nunez (£8.8m) had to make do with a second-half cameo.

A FIRST SIGHT OF MUDRYK

Mudryk’s debut came early in the second half and he immediately looks like one for the FPL watchlist. Pacey and direct with his dribbling, his stats might show only one shot on goal but he was in the thick of things. That registered effort came from six yards after a waltz into the Liverpool area but he was also inches away from connecting with a cross from the right and then should have finished first time, rather than attempted to control the ball, with an almost identical delivery.

“That was really good. He’s only been with us a couple of days. He will only get better the more he is with us, and the more we understand each other, but promising signs. He will get supporters off their seats. His dribbling action is really high. He knows where the goal is.

“We had 45 minutes as his maximum, ideally around 35 minutes. We felt it as the right time to put him in, he is a fit boy and has trained a lot. He’s not played since November so it would have been a risk to play him from the start.

“I am happy for him to get his first minutes and start his career with us.” – Graham Potter

FINE MARGINS FOR MARCH + MITOMA

Kaoru Mitoma (£5.0m) v Solly March (£5.1m) would have been a coin-toss decision for a considerable number of FPL managers ahead of Saturday’s deadline.

The two players had polarising fortunes in Gameweek 21, with Mitoma walking away with a double-digit haul and March blanking.

Talk about fine margins (and ‘variance’), though. Mitoma’s excellent strike came from his only shot of the game, an effort that carried an expected goals (xG) value of just 0.02. March, meanwhile, missed the below chance after kicking the ball, Mitrovic-style, onto his standing foot. Mitoma would have claimed the assist for the below effort, it should be said, but at least the ‘big chance created’ helped him secure maximum bonus points.

The third member of Brighton’s cut-price, in-form trio, Evan Ferguson (£4.6m), lost his place in the starting XI but replaced positional rival Danny Welbeck (£6.5m) midway through the second half and grabbed a late equaliser. Game-time might always be more of a question mark than it is with Mitoma or March but this goal won’t have done his Gameweek 22 prospects any harm, while Ferguson remarkably now sits top of the FPL form table among forwards.

Pervis Estupinan (£4.5m) claimed assists for both of the Seagulls’ goals and now sits a fine seventh among FPL defenders for chances created this season.

It was another positive attacking display from Albion, who have scored two or more goals in seven of their last eight league matches. They’ll be without Alexis Mac Allister (£5.4m) in Gameweek 22, however, after he picked up his fifth booking of the season on Saturday.

‘BIG-CHANCE’ BARNES, MADDISON RETURNS

The rate of ‘big chances’ falling to Harvey Barnes (£6.7m) was something we mentioned in last week’s Scout Notes after a defeat to Nottingham Forest and here he was again getting another gilt-edged opportunity against Brighton, this time converting.

Above: Harvey Barnes has had at least one big chance in nine of his last 11 appearances. Here is how he ranks compared to other FPL midfielders in that time.

“He’s always a threat, Harvey. Maybe his final pass wasn’t so good today but he was in there, he read the flick on well and it was nice to get a goal from a corner.” – Brendan Rodgers

Also noteworthy for FPL managers was the return to fitness of James Maddison (£8.0m), who made his first appearance since the World Cup as a second-half substitute. Leicester’s next four fixtures will be a deterrent to most of us but Maddison will soon be back in the Fantasy reckoning, with his average of 5.9 points per start in 2022/23 only beaten by two other midfielders – Mitoma and Martin Odegaard (£6.9m) – who we’d consider regular starters.

      1. Heavy Cream
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I jumped on and will stay put for a while. I’m even considering benching Kane to play him plus a second Man U mid.

      2. Weak Become Heros
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I’ve had plenty of them this year mate.

    4. Cilly Bonnolly

      Might have done if I wasn’t already going to having six missing from gameweek 25.

      1. Men in green tights

        Which games are potentially missing for gw25

    Last few weeks have been good and am currently sitting at 158k, up from a season low of 5.6m.

    I have a habit of doing this, decent GW1 and then I properly mess it up and leave myself a hill to climb for the season.

    Not that it’s not exciting in and of itself but determined as I am every year not to repeat the same pattern, it’s always the same.

    This year I’ve managed to increase my team value with way fewer transfers, which has definitely helped.

    Anyone got any other advice for those first few weeks of the season? Any strategies in team selection that deliver consistent results? Or are the first few weeks bound to deliver severe standings swings due to the bunching of the tables? Thanks in advance…

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Stick with the template to keep pace with a respectable rank (not that I took my own advice).

      Then gradually look to pick away from it.

      1. GlamRock Chauffeurs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks Heros, I am usually pretty templatey. Funnily enough, still pretty templatey so wasn’t quite expecting the big green arrows last couple of weeks. I think I’m too rash sometimes at start of season and not patient to wait and see true form.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Not really! In my much more limited experience, I do exactly the same

      1. GlamRock Chauffeurs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Well at least it’s fun watching the climb up the work league table and gaining the somewhat resentful respect of eye rolling colleagues!

  4. RUUD!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Anyone considering Bruno or Rash triple captain if double is confirmed?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think you're the first one 😉

    2. Men in green tights
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yep , on Bruno if it happens

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Totally would had i not used it on Rash last GW

    4. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Me.

    5. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Sure

    6. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Bruno TC

    7. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Of course

    8. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Considering but I'm still not too sure on it. Will have to watch ManUtd's next few games closely, still feel like I may hang onto it for another week

    9. Arn De Gothia
      • 13 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      o/

  5. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Who the hell do I ditch to get in Bruno(TC)?

    Saka, Odegaard, Mitoma, March, Rashford.

    Guess March? He should have had another 10+ haul yesterday. And BOU next will be carnage.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      March. I'm having similar problem..

      Mahrez Rashford* Rodrigo* Mitoma Odegaard

      Probably Mitoma for me but don't like it

    2. Men in green tights
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Tough one , but one of the Brighton players
      You will probably getting wrong either way as that seems to be the way at the moment for most of us

    3. ZeBestee
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      March. Mitoma is more exciting and he will create more eventually hence the better option imo. I don't study stats but rather eye test.

  6. FPL Virgin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Did I miss the March Vs Mitoma article we were promised?

    Or did it fail to materialize like the world cup article comparing arsenal midfielders in more detail?

    1. Heavy Cream
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes you missed it

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Dang.

  7. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Wanna get Bruno and at the same time I’m fed up with Almiron.
    Thoughts on KDB Almiron to Bruno Odegard -4?
    Meanwhile will reconsider which City mid get for DGW23, rather not keen on going back to KDB tbh.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yay!

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I would definitely go for that

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      That's what i am doing. Maybe mahrez if he is still doing ok?
      I have ferguson upfront atm so could ho back to kdb and make my decision gw23.

      Trouble is I have 1 Brighton 1 Newcastle snd two man utd before Bruno gw25 is s real bummer

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Although the question is as I have two ft. Fo I punt on rodrigo before odegard?

        1. Atimis
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          For sure, I only wouldn’t do it if selling Rodrigo after means a hit but recon it is not the case

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Looks good although obviously wait for a while on it. I'm in a similar position with KDB, I got rid of Foden last week despite the double and it was the right call, KDB is a bit more difficult but I may do the same and avoid bringing him back

    5. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Cheers guys! Obviously taking these price rises on the chin. Mahrez looks nice for DGW23

      Being patient not taking a hit last GW and saving a FT this GW has been rather annoying (yes hindsight post)

      Currently 7 points down (including the hit) in Cancelo vs Botman over last 2GWs. 3 points down on Almiron vs Mitoma this GW when I factor in the value of FT transfer value

      1. Tonyawesome69

        Dems be the breaks mate

  9. Nate(U)dog(ie)
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Mudryk definitely looked good when he came on. I've only really seen him in the UCL but he showed flashes here of what I had seen before, direct running at defenders and towards goal and good footwork and a lot of pace. Chelsea still seem hard to predict so I'm not sure how viable a pick he'll be but I'm certainly tempted by him with some decent fixtures on the horizon

    1. JT11fc
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yup promising cameo, I took the plunge, happy to have him up my sleeve

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Nice, I definitely get an ASM/Hazard feel from him, should be a fun pick to watch regardless of the FPL outcome

        1. JT11fc
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Ye more direct then Chelseas other wingers. I got him early for a bit of entertainment

        2. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I got the Werner impression. But maybe it's just me. Maybe he is too quick for his own good?

    2. ZeBestee
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Will definitely give him a few gameweeks before deciding. New players in the PL almost always results in 2 outcomes: instant form or a longer period until they start showing any form. No short term gaining of form unless its to do with fitness etc

    There's seems to be a lot of bitching towards the contributers and content of the site. More so than I have ever seen in the past 13 years. Is this due to new breeds on here? I find it flabbergasting how people can moan about contributers, the experts and the site in general. If you don't like it then don't visit the site. Keep your negativity to yourself. Bored of coming on here to hear people moaning about the site. Granted this post is moany before some half a*se illustrates the obvious

    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think it's probably more of a general frustrating with content creators in general with the prevalence of them everywhere now on any social-based site.

      I've only been here a short time so can't complain much. I've never subscribed as I don't see a need for it, I can find the info I need for free on other sites and much prefer the more personal eye test anyway. That being said, this site really does need some QOL improvements and it has done so since I joined. Issues have been raised often and I feel like they're rarely listened to or dealt with, ones that are simply to do with the usability of the site and I can't really understand that, especially from people that are paying for it (although really that's a different matter).

      I think it's more of a general tendency on social media. Last two or three years the climate have changed a bit.

    Being patient not taking a hit last GW and saving a FT this GW has been rather annoying (yes hindsight post)

    Currently 7 points down (including the hit) in Cancelo vs Botman over last 2GWs. 3 points down on Almiron vs Mitoma this GW when I factor in the value of FT

      I know. Every year I think I know how to get ahead of the game and every year the game goes running off into the distance leaving me eating the dust of miscalculated decisions and spurned opportunities.

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I took a hit (Kepa and Cancelo to Ederson and Gabreil) and I'm currently 9 points down thanks to Kepa CS. Could still work out though with the double on the way and MITB to do Almiron to Odegaard.

    Thoughts on this...

    Andreas + Walker --> Eriksen + Estupinan (for free)

    Can't afford Fernandes without making at least 3 or 4 transfers, and my team would be unbalanced as a result

    The moves would leave me with this team:

    Kepa
    Trippier Shaw Botman
    KDB Rashford ERIKSEN Martinelli
    Haaland Kane Mitrovic

    Ward White Almiron ESTUPINAN

    This gives me;
    Shaw, Rashford, Eriksen who double.

    ...and the possibility of a bench boost! (The bench have good fixtures e.g. Bournemouth, Everton, West ham)

    1. All For One
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No Brighton midfielder? I would transfer out Almiron> Mitoma

    Good morning all!! Best option between Botman and Burn?? Both have 4 bonus this season Botman(7,7,7,7) and Burn(7,9) flip a coin????

    Cheers everyone!!!

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Both now at the same price, I would lean towards Burn with slightly higher attacking threat in open play.

    Mudryk is on for winning the Balon Dor if you go buy some of the bedwetting FPL And Chelsea fans.

    He got one point and fluffed his lines yesterday. He’s fast but is basically Ukrainian Theo Walcott

    1. JT11fc
      • 5 Years

      Ever the optimist....
      Chelsea fans been longing for a decent forward

      1. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
        • 3 Years

        You’ve only bought 700 in the last five years.

        1. JT11fc
          • 5 Years

          Yup, very frustrating

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Haven't seen any FPL players bedwetting themselves over him at all, mostly people saying he looked decent but that it's too soon to back him given he just joined, and Chelsea's form

    3. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years

      Looking forward to seeing more of him, not willing to toss him in the Wernhole just yet.

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You obviously know a lot about him.

      1. George Sillett
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        He knows nothing whatsoever about him. When he is in this position he just makes things up . A proven liar , the lowest of the low

    5. George Sillett
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Slackwillie with his very predictable brand of total exaggeration and the poorest attempt at wumming. Stinks of sour grapes too as he clearly snubbed Arsenal.

    How many minutes do we think Weghorst will get for the DGW?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Depends on Martials fitness. If still out, likely to start both games imo but Rashford will probably play last 10-15 mins up top

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Fully depends on Martial's availability

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      70-80

    4. TanN
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      What happened last time weghorst had a dgw in FPL?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Don't think that matters. He played for Burnley

        1. TanN
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          It does matter. He is the same person is he not? Playing for man United does not mean you will suddenly become a world class strikrr

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Plays for a better team and surrounded by better players. Have a look at his stats outside of his Burnley stint. I didn't say he is world class. I just don't think the Burnley stint should be a factor when considering to transfering him

          2. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 7 Years

            It does matter if he plays for Burnley or United. Watkins would have scored 15+ if he played for City.

    Can't afford Fernandes, but could afford Eriksen. Is he worth it? I own rashford and Shaw from man United.

    1. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …

      No

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years

      I don't think so. I would rather bring in an Arsenal mid

    3. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      You going to TC? The assists are coming from all over tbh. Casemiro, Eriksen, Garnacho, Fernandes so it's hard to say. Could work, could fail.

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'll buck the trend and say I was actually looking at Eriksen too. His positioning should realistically mean he'll less likely to return, but he's been superb every time I've seen him lately, he's been everywhere on the pitch and is still carrying the ball up the pitch in central positions at times, for a punt on a double week I don't think it could hurt. Only issue may be getting subbed around 60-70. But 5 returns in his last 6 (which is exactly what Bruno has)

    Anything else helpful?

    Cap/TC Rashford or Bruno?

    Ederson
    Trippier, Botman, White, Shaw
    Bruno, Rashford, Ode,
    Hauland, Kane, Toney

    Ward, Almiron, Andreas, Bueno

      I’m considering it. But will have to get him back next week for the double and then have to take a hit to get in a city def to have 3 city and 3 ars

      1. g40steve
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Exactly what I’m doing 23, Bruno & Almiron > KDB & either Saka/Marty

    2. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      That's exactly my team. I just have Mahrez and Bailey instead of Andreas and Almiron.

      Still don't know who I will cap between Rash and Bruno. More information post today's match I think.

      1. g40steve
        • 6 Years

        Nice, capped Rashford last three games & KDB this week

  21. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Did the well behaved thing this week and held off on the obvious transfer, despite how hard it was. But of course Mitoma scores.

    1. Fitzy.

      • 7 Years

      That's sort of happening when you are a striker that relies upon your team mates ability to pass.
      Pep wondering why he didn't go for Kane. A much better fit. Wait, he was but Levy put his feet on the table and said "smell these",

  23. Gizzachance
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Gw22 salah to Bruno if doubles
    One of Almiron Andrea’s Kulu to odegaard for free
    Then gw 23 bring in saka, for any of above,already have white
    Not bothering with pep roulette, just stick with haaland for now

  24. Our Tiny Windows

    Currently on Ward/3.9.

    A -4 to bring in Ederson should make my points back and more?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Nah. I would rather look at GKs that have a DD ceiling

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Not worth it. City haven't been great defensively and there are better keeper options than Ederson

    3. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Eddie was robbed of an Assist, City defender without the worries of Pep roulette

  25. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    What are we looking for in todays games to pull the trigger on some transfers?

    - Gnonto to continue form and starts/mins
    - Clarity on Rodrigo vs Bamford

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Gnonto & Rodrigo should be safe starters in the short-term; I wouldn't worry about that. For my own part, I think I need to see how Forest have been playing at home as I haven't seen much of them lately & I'm not too sure how good these fixtures are. If anything happens to Bruno in the meantime I'll almost certainly get Rodrigo. Bit undecided on Mitrovic - Gnonto at the moment since it would be for a hit.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Nothing but blanks.

  26. House Frey Wedding Planner
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Good moves ahead of gw22?

    If DGW - Mount and Mitro ➡ Fernandes & Gnonto

    If no DGW - Mount & Mitro ➡ Mitoma & Toney

    Kepa Ward
    Trips Shaw White Lewis Bueno
    KDB Odegaard Martinelli Rashford Mount
    Haaland Mitro Kane

    1FT, 0.5itb

    Got priced out of doing Mitro to Toney yesterday so prepared to take a -4

    1. Fitzy.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yeah mate. What's your plan for BGW25? Think I'll have around the same number of blankers as you...

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Shaw and Rashford seem like season keepers and Utd have a good run of fixtures ahead.

        Hoping to only have Shaw Rashford and Trippier blanking in my team ahead of bgw25 (assuming it is a Man Utd v Newcastle final)

  27. Tonyawesome69
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Issues I have with Trippier (c)

    - generally high floor but low ceiling
    - going against high EO in Haaland
    - Haaland has a higher ceiling
    - rinse repeat

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      The only thing keeping him firmly in my VC spot is that the attacking returns have dried up, with Newcastle struggling to finish at the moment

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Newcastle look they prefer a more defensive approach than attacking at the moment. Certainly from open play, we can't rely on Trippier. Returns from set pieces are too inconsistent

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Hmm I'm not sure its a preference tbh, I think its just the effect of Wilson struggling, Almiron regressing a bit & some smart defensive tactics employed against them - especially shutting down the space for Trip-Miggy-Bruno triangles. Still creating chances & putting up decent xG figures

    2. g40steve
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Hauland only has 11 points more than Trippier?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        We are trying to predict future returns

  28. PartyTime
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Need the Arsenal - Utd game to be a very dirty match, just like old times… wanna see cards flying around, goals, Arteta slapping Ten Haag’s skull etc.

    Come on Arsenal! Come on Utd!

  29. ZeBestee
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    So Mitoma went to Uninversity to do a thesis on how to dribble. The guy is determined to be the one of the best in that category, and not shying away from other qualities (scoring, assists etc). He is an enticing prospect.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Hence the thick bib I suppose.

        Lol, you can't beat a determined man.
