Champions League

The best forwards for UEFA Champions League Fantasy 2023/24

The 2023/24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) begins next Tuesday – and so does the competition’s official Fantasy game.

We’ll have plenty of UCL Fantasy coverage in preparation for next week’s big kick-off, plus articles throughout the season.

If you’re new to the game or need reminding of the rules, check out our ‘how to play’ guide below.

Following a look at top goalkeeping and midfield options, our preview articles continue by picking out the best Champions League Fantasy forwards.

With a squad of 15 players and substitutions possible between the evenings of a Matchday, having forwards from both halves of the group draw is a great way to maximise points. This way, you know that there’ll be options on each day.

Here’s a guide to who’s who.

Best Champions League Fantasy forwards

GROUPS E-H

FPL Gameweek 4: Saturday’s goals, assists, bonus points + stats 14

Erling Haaland (€11.5m) – Manchester City

The name on everyone’s lips when it comes to goalscoring. Haaland is in the form of his life, already scoring seven from five Premier League matches. Last year in UCL Fantasy, the forward netted 12 times to help Man City lift their first-ever Champions League crown.

Another reason that Haaland should be the first name in UCL Fantasy teams is Man City’s very favourable group with Crvena Zvezda, RB Leipzig and Young Boys.

Already owned by 71% of managers, that number will only rise as we inch closer to the start. At home to Crvena Zvezda in Matchday 1, Haaland will also be a great captaincy option.

Furthermore, an honourable mention goes to Julian Alvarez (€7.0m). With Kevin De Bruyne’s (€10.5m) long-term injury, this bargain forward is set to get an extended run in the Man City attack. 

Kylian Mbappe (€11.5m) – PSG

Up next is one of the most consistent performers over the last two years both domestically and on the world’s biggest stage. We all remember his World Cup final heroics and, rightfully, he has been priced as one of the two most expensive forwards of Champions League Fantasy.

Last year’s continental campaign brought seven goals and three assists, also getting four ‘Player of the Match’ awards for an extra 12 points. Now playing as more of a left-winger at PSG, he’s running in from behind rather than being the out-and-out striker.

In four league starts, he has seven goals and a link-up slowly blossoming with French compatriot Ousmane Dembele (€8.0m). Both Neymar and Lionel Messi have left Paris over the summer. 

Matchday 1 pits them against a leaky Dortmund, a team that recently conceded two late strikes to promoted side Heidenheim. It’s a great opportunity for Mbappe to get a big haul. 

Robert Lewandowski (€10.5m) – FC Barcelona 

Another huge name is next. Over many years, Robert Lewandowski has been the lead UCL Fantasy forward. You get exactly what you want for such a price tag and that is goals, goals, and more goals.

Lewandowski and Barcelona will be looking to make amends after last season’s very disappointing Champions League campaign, finishing third in their group behind Bayern Munich and Inter. 

However, being a top seed has helped Barcelona avoid some big match-ups. They’ve been placed in a promising group with Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and Royal Antwerp. 

Lewandowski will be licking his lips at facing the Belgian champions in Matchday 1 and we back him to go big by replicating his exploits from last year’s opening fixture, where he ended with 18 points. 

At the time of writing, he’s in a surprisingly low 14% of UCL Fantasy teams.

Rafael Leao (€9.5m) – AC Milan

Milan talisman Rafael Leao continues to go from strength to strength and his stock keeps rising. He has bagged 26 goals and 16 assists over the last two seasons to become their main threat.

His first match is at home to Newcastle United, about to have their first Champions League match in 20 years. If there are nerves, Leao and his team-mates can take advantage of this. 

On the other hand, a couple of factors that are a deterrent to Leao as a UCL Fantasy pick. Ideally, he would have been classified as a midfielder instead of a forward, whilst he’s also without penalty duties. 

That responsibility is with fellow Milan forward Oliver Giroud (€8.0m). This season’s four Serie A starts have brought six goals involvements, showing once again that you can never completely rule him out.

Lois Openda (€7.5m) – RB Leipzig 

Elsewhere, one of the summer’s low-key exciting transfers took Openda from Lens to RB Leipzig.

Last season in Ligue 1, Openda scored 21 times from 29 starts to help his side secure Champions League football for the first time in a while.

His time in Germany has started well enough, netting thrice in four starts. At only 1% ownership, he could be a great differential pick for Matchday 1 squads as Leipzig host Young Boys.

Santiago Gimenez (€7.5m) – Feyenoord 

A big part of Feyenoord being crowned as Dutch champions over Ajax and PSV Eindhoven was because of Gimenez. 15 goals arrived in just 21 starts, with six more already coming in this season’s five outings.

Given that Feyenoord start their UCL quest at home to Celtic, the Mexican is another who can provide great early value.

GROUPS A-D

FPL pre-season: Kane scores four, Pedro on pens

Victor Osimhen (€10.0m) – Napoli 

One of the world’s most prolific forwards right now, Osimhen is showing why Napoli paid almost €90m to buy him a few years ago. His 26 goals helped secure their first Scudetto in 33 years, with superb hold-up play, off-ball running and innate heading talent making him a force to be reckoned with. 

With three goals in four domestic games, the early signs are that Osimhen is in for yet another successful campaign. He should definitely be in your UCL Fantasy thinking.

Nevertheless, the one downside is that he doesn’t have penalties unlike Haaland, Mbappe or Harry Kane (€10.0m). 

Napoli start their UCL campaign away to Braga and it won’t be a surprise if Osimhen comes away from that with a goal or two to his name. 

Mauro Icardi (€9.0m) – Galatasaray 

Being a Milan fan, I remember Icardi always being a thorn by scoring goals for Inter. Now he’s doing the same in Turkey for Galatasaray, with a smart bit of transfer business getting him from PSG. 

Last season’s 22 goals and seven assists took the Turkish club to domestic success and he’s continuing the same form by already notching five times in four starts. When Copenhagen come to visit, 3%-owned Icardi could be a great shout. 

Angel Di Maria (€8.0m) – Benfica 

Another player who has got a new lease of life is Di Maria. After getting a transfer from Juventus to Benfica, he has already amassed four goals and two assists from five matches. He isn’t taking long to re-settle on his return to Lisbon. 

It would’ve been great if he was listed as a midfielder in UCL Fantasy but he’s one of several to be reclassified as a forward. 

By combining good attacking numbers with penalty duties and an opener at home to Salzburg, he could turn out to be a great bargain. 

Lautaro Martinez (€9.0m) – Inter Milan 

Now that Edin Dzeko and Romelu Lukaku have departed, Martinez is firmly established as Inter’s main man. With him, you get a consistent supply of returns – in fact, 51 from the last two Serie A seasons. This bodes well when selecting a Champions League Fantasy forward.

A strong start to 2023/24 means Martinez is in the form of his life heading into Matchday 1 against Real Sociedad.

Harry Kane (€10.0m) – Bayern Munich 

Not only did Kane finally get the transfer that he had been wanting for several seasons but Bayern have eventually found a proper number nine to replace Lewandowski. 

This feels like a great fit for both parties and there aren’t many reasons why Kane won’t be a huge success there.

Last season, Kane had one of his best-ever by scoring 30 times in the league. He’s just getting better with age and, in four Bayern games, he already has four goals and an assist.

Against Manchester United in the opening round of games, he’ll definitely be in the thinking from Matchday 2 onwards.

    Who to get rid of out of Bruno and Rashford???

    1. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Rashford had 9 shots.
      I'd say Bruno.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Bruno. Rashford looked good yesterday.

    3. agueroooooney
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Bruno

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Just watched MOTD, Rashford was trying too hard with his plenty of opportunities.

      One goal and his confident could be back and becomes more clinical.

  2. 2001: A Space Origi
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    I watched a few games yesterday. I have held on to Botman since GW1 and I think last night he proved he is a true asset, not only in FPL, but so valuable to Newcastle, best £4.5M defender??

    1. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Given that other 4.5 defenders have had price rises, he's possibly the best one left. Only issue is whether he suffers from CL rotation.

      1. Derbz87
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I think its very unlikely. They don't have loads of options at CB. You could tell how desperate Howe was to get him back this week.

      2. 2001: A Space Origi
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I think the way he was trained when growing up in the art of total football, he can stomach 2 games a week, but we really have to wait and see how Newcastle handle it, so good point.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Maybe best. But definitely worth having now the fixtures are turning.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Gusto.

      1. 2001: A Space Origi
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I am sorry I really can't buy into Chelsea just yet..I think they need at least 19 games to bed that new team together properly and then I will evaluate further. But he is proving great value for money. After 19 games, I think Newcastle will have more CS than Chelsea...

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          fair but Gusto might out assist the Newcastle defenders.

          1. 2001: A Space Origi
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            While James is out, that is 100% true

            1. 2001: A Space Origi
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 12 days ago

              Not that he is £4.5M, but might replace Gusto, so I actually mean, yes you are right 🙂

          2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            Is Gusto really that great in an attacking sense? Both of his assists came v Luton, one being a 2 yard pass to Sterling who did all the work, the other a cross where he was given the freedom of Stamford Bridge to pick out an unmarked Sterling

    4. Derbz87
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      If Newcastle can get back to the defensive form from the start of last season him and Burn are gold at 4.5m

    5. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Yeah I think he's from here on one of the best with those upcoming fixtures.

      Contenders are the likes of Udogie, Henry, Cash, Andersen ... feel that he's up there.

      1. 2001: A Space Origi
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Sorry, which one of those defenders is £4.5M?

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Bracket, I get ya

  3. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Just saw that a content creator brought in Sterling GW4 and replace with Son GW5, wondering who's he going to bring in GW6? A bit madness, isn't it?

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Expose him

    2. boc610
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      really don't understand the obsession with content creators on here and what they do to their FPL teams

      1. Derbz87
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I find it curious that they refer to themselves as full time FPL players like the rest of us mere mortals are part timers, really they are full time YouTubers but don't want that title.

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Surely it is better to be a full time youtuber than a ft fpl player.

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        No obsession just wondering, is this typical? I do not follow much apart from Blackbox

      3. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Most talked about topics on here:

        1. Content creators
        2. Betting articles
        3. Salah

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          😆 no score check any longer now?

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            not this week at least!

            a Haaland base 40 points and it would be a different story.

      4. Shultan
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I'd say it's curiosity more than an obsession.
        They make doing money giving out similar advice to what you can get from 'non-professionals' on here
        Human nature to compare yourself to others

    3. yousunkmybattleship
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Who cares tbh

    4. theplayer
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Well I did exactly the same moves. Don't think you can call it madness. It was unlucky that both of them blanked with plum fixtures.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah madness is probably too strong, kneejerk better? 😛

    5. Shultan
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Not just one, quite a few did it this week
      I reckon this week it will be all about getting Salah
      Most of of then have double utd defence & 2 FT so Salah will be flavour of the week

  4. agueroooooney
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Eyeing up Botman, Trippier and Alvarez. Want to replace Gabriel, Baldock and J.Pedro but I'm considering losing Jackson for more funds. Which looks best:

    A) Gabriel/Baldock + J.Pedro -> Botman + Alvarez (bench headache)

    B) Gabriel + Jackson -> Trippier + Alvarez (stuck with JP, enough itb for Baldock -> Botman)

    C) Other

    Pickford
    Estupinan - Chilwell - Gabriel*
    Saka - Rashford - Diaz - Foden - Mitoma
    Haaland - Jackson
    Turner - J.Pedro* - Beyer - Baldock*

    2 FT, 2.1 itb

  5. Count Your Blessings
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Santiago Gimenez is suspended. He is defo not an option for MD1.

  6. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Haaland missed 3 absolute sitters in the first half.

    Okay, 1 decent block but Son captainers got lucky.

    1. Alan The Llama
      • 14 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Were you on Haaland?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        yeah, just watched it back on MoTD and he had at least 5 great chances.

        1. Alan The Llama
          • 14 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          I think anyone who didn't captain Haaland yesterday got away with one.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            defo.

            could have been almost a 40 points difference compared to say 10.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      on another day Haaland could well have scored 5 or 6.

    3. Derbz87
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Sounds like the Sheff Utd game. Half the teams in the league would take a 10 goal a season striker and he should have done it in 5 games. Crazy stuff.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        yeah.

        just seen this from big man Bakar.

        Erling Haaland v West Ham

        Big chances: 6
        Big chances missed: 5
        xG: 2.19
        FPL points: 6

        Got away with murder as a Son captainer. This was 20 point haul staring right at our face

        1. ameisin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Yep. I've learned my lesson, got away with it very lightly, and will never misbehave again!

    4. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      2.59 xG!

      To put into perspective he had 1.58 xG vs Fulham!

      1. Derbz87
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        barring injuries he'll break 40 goals this season and he's still missing sitters. Scary stuff.

        1. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Indeed

        2. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Almost makes one of Foden/Alvarez etc essential as they’re bound to be involved

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            the Alvarez free kick that crashed off the post from about 30 yards could also have landed at his feet with an open goal on another day.

    5. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I was Son (c) and I came away feeling pretty lucky and surprisingly not too disappointed.

      I had Alvarez who made up most my score in my mini league.

      Will probably be too scared to stray from Haaland (c) again for a while now.

      Got burnt a few times last season.

  7. Paulie Walnuts
    • 8 Years

    Greetings... on a wildcard but can't decide on botman or cash...

  8. Alan The Llama
    • 14 Years

    If Saliba-san doesn't get some points today, it's a sayonara from me.

    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Not keen on early transfers but had to for price rises last night and sold him already. Spurs, City, Chelsea away and Newcastle in the next 6

  9. have you seen cyan

    would u sell bowen?

    1. Paulie Walnuts

        I saw someone here’s say that yesterday, was that you?
        It’s not a suggestions I would have considered, but I see the logic.

    2. yousunkmybattleship

      Keeping for Liverpool game against their shambolic defence

      1. have you seen cyan

        I may as well just keep him then tbh, he has sheffield after that.

    Lamptey 2 assists from an xA of 0.08 yesterday.

    Cash also had 0.68 xG - did he have a good chance?

    1. Derbz87
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      he missed a sitter didn't he? Didn't connect with it properly and sliced it in the box.

      1. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Not seen any highlights of that game, that’s annoying but good to know he’s still getting chances despite playing RB

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Had a good chance to score a header

      Seems to be getting in quite a few good positions this season

  11. Joelinton Travel Tavern
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 12 days ago

    My team is shite lads. Low 2m OR and got many many fires burning (the *s)

    Pick* Turner
    Saliba Udog Estu Chil* Kabore
    Saka Mbeu Foden Rash* Bruno*
    Haal Jackson* Archer

    On the plus side, 2FTs and 1.3itb

    Could WC - BUT how does this look for a medium term plan?

    Gw6: Jackson, Bruno > Alv, Diaby
    7: Chil > Bot
    8: roll
    9: Rash, Pickf > Salah, Areola

    No hits and plenty of cash buffer. I think all those players are good med to long term options.

    1. Joelinton Travel Tavern
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Note all subject to midweek injuries, early news Sat etc

    2. cruzex
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      No morris plan gw7?

    3. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Looks an OK plan. You could keep Chilwell a week longer.

    4. Eze Really?
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      At least wait until GW complete. Botman playing in Europe too. Rash had 6 good chances yesterday

    5. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Interested in your definition of fires, especially considering Rashford and Chiwell

      I'd go Pickford to Flekken/Leno and roll. Maybe Jackson to Alvarez as well. Bruno gets the Burnley game as Kompany refuses to park the bus, and then he can be shown the door after. Rash is doing well, imo. I'd lose Saliba and Kabore before Chilwell here

      1. Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years

        Ah, here's that Chilwell fire now X_X

    Think about this, was there a point in previous seasons where you owned a midfield five and every spot is loaded?

    Usually most of us would have been sitting with a 4.5 fwd as well as a 4.5 mid plus a 4.0 def on the bench in previous seasons.

    Also no love for Trent has changed things drastically because of the midfielders prices.

    Hopefully the pricing is not as screwed up next season. I guess the only positive is that not every team looks the same unless you follow content creators of course but the prices cause a problem when you want a new cheap toy each week.

    Thinking in..

    Saka + son out

    Gordon + salah in

    Yes or no?

    Who to prefer?
    Gordon or enzo?

    Have exact money, would you do for -4?

    Rashford Foden and Jackson
    To
    Salah Diaby Alvarez

    1. FOO FIGHTER

      Good moves!

    2. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      No, Salah is over-priced.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Rashford had 9 attempts yesterday, and Burnley next who Son netted a hattie against.

      100% no questions asked

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      If you get priced out, you are screwed. Everyone is going to run to Salah now.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        As well as Alvarez!

        1. JoeJitzu +42
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks Foo Fighter, yes I’m conscious that it’ll be not possible after this evening!

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            He is trolling a little FYI.

          2. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            I said before GW5 started that I will see how Salah does and whether moving him will be worth it. I almost ditched him for Son so that would have been a disaster.

            Salah will continue to return and get double digits in between so enjoy bringing him in 🙂

    6. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Just Diaby and Alvarez for free, imo

      Wouldn't sell Rashford before Burnley for a hit. I wish I could buy him, even... See how it goes and then it can be an easier decision for free in GW7

      1. JoeJitzu +42
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks Ze_Austin, yes makes total sense. The pinch point is I’ll be priced out.

        So you’re suggesting Foden / Jackson to Diaby / Alvarez?

        Cheers for the reply.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          And keep Rashford lol

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Bring in Salah bro. You know, we all know price does not matter with him.

        3. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Don't let those who need to take more than one hot to bring him in sway your decision making 🙂

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 12 days ago

            *hit

        4. Ze_Austin
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          Or just Jackson to Alvarez and roll with Foden's next 2 games (unless you've got a City defender). You could get JWP later instead of Diaby to afford Salah

  15. afsr
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Rank in shambles, 2nd worst start in 9 years of playing

    Onana
    Chilwell, Estupinan, Gusto
    Son, Saka, Bruno, Rash, Mbeumo
    Haaland, Alvarez

    Turner, Henry, Beyer, Mubama
    1FT, 1.3 ITB

    A - Onana, Henry -> Leno, Botman (-4)
    B - WC to get Salah, Maddison, Udogie, keeper, Sterling
    C - Henry -> Botman/Schar
    D - save
    E - your suggestions

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      team looks good for next week so probably D, then fix whatever problems with 2ft's

  16. lugs
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Haaland, Alvarez, Icard, is my frontline in UCL i recently replaced Kane with Icardi so i could crowbar Sane into my midfield, also Galatasary have bought well and they are dark horses for me to have a good run this year, plus i'm strongly attacking the gw1 fixtures as its hard to make up ground in UCL 🙂

  17. cruzex
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Enzo or gordon?

  18. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Keep Onana for now and sell Henry and Bruno?

    1. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Have Rash as well so reckon Bruno can go

    2. Alan The Llama
      • 14 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Looks sound. I'm going to play Onana against Burnley then reassess.

    3. JBG
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Sell Henry and Bruno yeah

    4. Atimis

    Would you start Cash or Lamptey next week?

    Only real dilemma I’ve got

    1. 2001: A Space Origi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      I don't think Lamptey will play because Estupinan will be back, so Cash. If we new 100% they would both be starting, then Lamptey!

      1. Toon lurk
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        He could always play RB? Surely difficult to drop him after that performance? Lot's of games coming up for Brighton so I imagine he's a risky lpick

      2. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks, got a feeling Lamptey might over Veltman, would be harsh not to play him after 2 assists

        1. 2001: A Space Origi
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          He did play very well, after that long not playing, I was shocked and he looked a little less like a headless chicken, much more defensive minded, he could be a great player this season...However, BHA are in Europe this season, so who knows what DZ will do rotation wise...but I take both points

  21. CostaCoffee

    Chilwell not starting today, Gallagher captains the side

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      no Chilly

      more Botman bench points.

      with Estu missing a bench of 2 is required.

      1. CostaCoffee
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        I would imagine he comes on at some point

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Hope so. As a striker. Against tired Bournemouth legs. Such tenuous expectations

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        oh, he could cameo.

        Alex Matsos, Alfie Gilchrist, Chilwell & Palmer among the bench.

          I put him second on the bench as well but apparently didn’t save

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Oh no, I’m down to two defenders. I thought he was one of Chelsea’s better players?

    4. PogChamp
      • 12 Years

      Salah and Chilwell making me think about WC next GW instead of GWs 8-10

    5. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…

      He will probably come on anywya

      that's Chilwell gone for me so, he was on my chopping block anyway with those early subs and Gusto offering far better value

      What can people see in Gallagher that I don't? Useful bench player, but not really at an elite level.

      Any thoughts?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        apparently he excels at breaking down play and retrieving possession.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          8 months, 12 days ago

          I look forward to reading lots of postive comments on here about his performance just to prove I know nothing.
          I think I must just be pissed off a bit about Chilly.

  23. CostaCoffee
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Seems like Chelsea are lining up like this:
    Sanchez
    Gusto Disasi Silva Colwill
    Enzo Ugochukwu Gallagher
    Sterling Jackson Mudryk

    1. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Bit weird to start Colwill ahead of Chilwell isn’t it.

      Pochetinno been hanging around with De Zerbi too much

      1. have you seen cyan
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Poch so over-rated.

      2. CostaCoffee
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 12 days ago

        Poch has preferred him at left back every game so far this season, I guess he offers a bit more stability which allows Gusto to get forward.. and can play absolute killer passes from that deep left position. I’d preferably have them both playing with Disasi/Silva dropping out

  24. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
    • 14 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    Chilwell fail?

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Probably

    2. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      He definitely makes it onto the pitch at least

    3. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
      • 7 Years

      Probably come on an score lol

    Lose one

    A) Foden

    Pick one

    1) Mbeumo
    2) Diaby

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      B1.

      I don’t think there’s much between Mbeumo and Diaby but have a good history of owning Mbeumo

  26. Alan The Llama
    • 14 Years
    8 months, 12 days ago

    32.8% owned. Pretty significant.

  27. Touré De Force

    Tetes 6 points await if Chilwell no show, he definitely gets a run though

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

      He will feature. How many minutes. No clue

  28. AC/DC AFC

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 12 days ago

      Alvarez is nailed. Even if he had to miss one game, why would you consider the 2nd highest scoring player a trap and under 7 million?

      Need anymore help?
