      C. Both.

    2. Traction Engine Foot

      Son

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years

      Both

    4. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years

      Both are worth holding onto but if you're absolutely pushed then I'd keep Son.

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

        yeah, this tbf

    Areola (Turner)

    Trippier Tsimi Cash (Gabriel, Taylor)

    Salah Son Bowen Gordon *Neto

    Haaland Watkins (Archer)

    2FT 0.0 ITB

    A) Neto to Hwang (save 1FT)

    B) Neto to Luiz (save 1FT)

    C) Neto & Trippier to Diaby & Andersen (or Guehi)

    D) Neto & Trippier to Mitoma & Andersen (or Guehi)

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Out of those options, probably D.

      I'd prefer Neto and Trips to Saka and Branthwaite over all of those though. Or even Archer and Trippier to Darwin and Branthwaite if you can afford it, and just bench Neto as he may be back after the international break.

        I’m just short on the Darwin/Brathwaite option. I’d need a 3.9 defender, and I already have Taylor.

        The Saka/Brath option is worth considering, though it leaves me a bit short in defense. Thanks!

          If you're willing to take a -4, then you can downgrade Neto to Palmer/Soucek/Adingra (whichever is affordable) and upgrade Brathwaite to Guehi or Mitchell.

          Archer, Neto and Trippier to Darwin, Guehi and Palmer would be worth a -4 in my opinion

          1. FusionFC
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Areola (Turner)
            Tsimi Cash Guehi (Gabriel Taylor)
            Salah Son Bowen Gordon (Adinga/Palmer)
            Darwin Haaland Watkins

            Fun team for this week. Could actually also upgrade Guehi to Andersen or even Stones if I downgrade Adinga/Palmer to true bench fodder.

    2FTs and £1.9m ITB. Current squad:

    Areola / Flekken
    Saliba / Andersen / Cash / Udogie / Botman
    Saka / Maddison / Son / Diaby / Bowen
    Haaland / Alvarez / Turner

    A. Botman to Tsimi and roll 1 FT?
    B. Botman and Turner to Tsimi and Nketiah?
    C. Something else?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      C Bowen and Turner to Nketiah and Doug Luis

    2. brentmeister
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      A.
      Bringing in Nketiah would give you a benching headache.

      Good to see another non Salah team, i was/am having doubts about mine..

      1. stuffantings
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Thought about Nketiah but true - benching headache and Newcastle fixture. Not having Salah worries me but tempted to bring in Darwin as cover maybe.

  4. Alan Watts

    What are the "optimal" 3 defenders for the medium term, 4 or 5 matches ?

    1. Scalper
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Saliba, Tsimikas, and Estupinan (likely back next gw)

      1. Alan Watts
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        No Cash ? xgi etc

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Liverpool defender, Palace defender, Arsenal defender.

      Villa defender is also good for 3 of the next 4

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Cash Tsimi and Trippier ... set and forget

      1. Alan Watts
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Have Trip and Cash...

        Thinking of shifting Porro for Tsim this GW...

        Cash hasn't really delivered though apart from 1 outlier GW...

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Go for it.

          You will get a return on average one game in every 2.5 or 3 from these guys ... any thing more is gravy ... Cash & Trippier have returned in 5 games out of 10 and owners are already pouring the gravy on their chips 🙂

    Hi all, still undecided on what's the best way to go here. All seem like positive moves, don't know which one has most upside:

    A) Bowen —> Diaby
    B) Maddison —> Diaby
    C) Udogie —> Tsimikas
    D) Burn—> Tsimikas

    Cheers and GL in this tricky GW!

    Trying to figure out a way to get haaland back. Not sure it’s worth it.

    Areola, turner
    Cash, porro, trippier, coufal, Taylor
    Saka, salah, maddison, Bowen, Gordon
    Watkins Alvarez Wilson

    Considering:
    A) Trippier, Maddison, Wilson —> branthwaite, adringa & haaland for -8

    B) leave it

    C) any suggestions??

      Wow not A! That’s brutal.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years

      Salah & Wilson to Haaland and Doug Luiz

  8. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

    Would you roll? Or try to get Tsimikas

    Johnstone
    Trippier Cash Guehi (Gabriel)(Taylor)
    Salah Son Saka Maddison Bowen
    Alvarez Watkins (Archer)

      Depends what moves you have in mind going forward.

      Your current defence carries from now till GW15 fine (if playing three). GW16 tricky but that's the same for most popular picks.

      You won't play Tsimikas over the next three after LUT so not sure it's worth it (you'd be benching Trippier... which can always backfire.)

  9. Shmoke
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Johnstone
    Cash - Trippier - Udogie
    Salah - Maddi - Bowen - Mbeumo - Gordon
    Watkins - Haaland

    SO the above looks good right, my bench is shite though, any ideas?
    Kaminski - Toffolo - Archer - Aurier

    1m in the bank, any ideas how to improve for the change of pace in fixtures?

  10. Barnaby Wilde
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Start Pinnock or Tarkowski?

      1. Cheese Crunch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Go tark. Everton the trendy pick. And I think WHU score, bowen in form.

    • ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      Any chance of a Tsimikas rest or early sub vs Luton?

      1. Casual Player
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Yes, there is a chance

      2. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Early sub? Yes. I thought a rest was possible too due to poor performances - but I'm not sure how it's work out given his minutes/fixtures.

        Luton (Sun) > Toulouse (Thu) > Brentford (Sun)

        Chambers played LB vs. Toulouse in the reverse tie and Liverpool won 5-1. Can see him starting again there perhaps?

        Don't see why the Sun Sun turnaround would be difficult for Tsimikas... unless they give Gomez a chance at LB.

        First time FPL player here, and I've never followed the sport in my life until now.

        I'm struggling to decide who to bench out of Trippier and Estupinan (other options are Pau and Anderson). Estupinan has a good matchup but may not start, and I'd be worried about him only getting a few minutes off the bench to manage his injury. Trippier has a poor matchup. It may not matter if Estupinan gets no minutes anyway.

        Also in my midfield I have to leave one out out of B. Fernandez, Odegaard, Mbeumo, Diaby, Mitoma. Odegaard is the most expensive but also the only one with a poor matchup so seems like the right choice? Three forwards are Watkins, Alvarez and Haaland so they all must start.

        I've been benching the wrong option ALL season so looking for some advice for a change. Thanks!

          Who else in your defense

          1. Cheese Crunch
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            As in who's your 5th defender

            I think it's:

            Tripper Anderson Pau
            Bruno mbuemo diaby mitoma
            (C) Haaland Alvarez Watkins

            1. jamesspray
                3 months, 22 days ago

                Kabore, so I was already excluding him due to matchup, apologies for not mentioning.

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Never bench Trippier ... if you own him you play him

          2 FT and get to use 1 on a budget fwd, to play gw 11

          A) Joao Pedro
          B) Cunha
          C) DCL

          leaning A but concerned about rotation and minutes

          1. rjcv177
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            A or Wissa

              3 months, 22 days ago

              Thanks

              have mbeumo, so feel set on Brentford cover

        3. rjcv177
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Best way to increase City this gw?

          A) Gabriel to Walker (bench gw12+13)
          B) Diaby to Foden (bench gw12)
          C) roll FT and go with only Alvarez

          1. Cheese Crunch
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            have Haaland?

            think C, Foden a rotation risk

        4. DB_FPL
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Any advice? Nothing greatly standing out atm so planning to roll FT (0.3 ITB)

            Flekken (Areola)
            Trips Digne Branthwaite Mitchell (Saliba)
            Salah Maddison Saka Hwang (Soucek)
            Haaland Watkins (Archer)

            Looking at options like Adingra/Palmer but not convinced…
