UCL FANTASY MATCHDAY 7

GOALKEEPERS

Everton v Arsenal team news: Raya in for Ramsdale, Havertz benched

Real Madrid face RB Leipzig this week, a side who have failed to win any of their last five matches. Because of this, the enabling price tag and the Spanish side’s experience in these latter stages, Andriy Lunin (€4.7m) could be a great option. If he fails to secure a significant return, then David Raya (€5.0m) of Arsenal will step in. The Gunners have maintained one of the best Premier League defences this season and Raya is the most reliable route into it, regarding minutes.

DEFENDERS

Who are the best replacements for injured Estupinan? 1

Meanwhile, doubling up on the Manchester City defence should be a top priority. They face Copenhagen – the lowest-ranked side left in the competition. Thankfully, we’ll get to see their line-up before the deadline so, for now, Manual Akanji (€4.9m) and Rico Lewis (€4.9m) both sit as placeholders.

Joining his goalkeeping team-mate is Arsenal’s William Saliba (€5.5m). Similar to Raya, he has very good clean sheet potential this week against Porto and costs €0.5m cheaper than centre-back partner Gabriel Magalhaes. Both colleagues scored a goal at the weekend.

Time to leave England and head across the channel. Paris Saint-Germain have a lovely home fixture against a Real Sociedad side that has failed to score in any of their last four matches in all competitions. As well as offering clean sheet potential, Achraf Hakimi (€6.1m) brings an attacking threat. In fact, the Moroccan has picked up seven attacking returns from 13 Ligue 1 starts so far.

Completing the back line is Ian Maatsen (€4.5m). Dortmund seem to be gaining momentum having won four of their last five outings. They’ve managed the same number of clean sheets in that period. PSV Eindhoven are next for the German side and one route into their defence is new loanee Maatsen. Not only has he started every match since joining but he’s also registered two assists in five appearances.

MIDFIELDERS

The best UCL Fantasy players for Matchday 1 1

Bayern Munich’s form may have slipped recently but they regularly average more than three goals per game. They also face a Lazio side that is eighth in Serie A. Of course, one of several routes into the Bayern attack is Leroy Sane (€9.1m), in exceptional domestic form with 19 goal contributions in 21 matches.

Inter play on the third day of Matchday 7, one that lacks standout captaincy options. However, it’s still very important that UCL managers have that day covered in regards to the armband and Marcus Thuram (€6.5m) could fit the bill. Categorised as a midfielder in the game, Thuram continues to play as their forward, grabbing 16 attacking returns in this season’s Serie A.

Elsewhere, Man City have won their last 10 matches in all competitions, so investing in their attack could be essential. One player who immediately comes to mind is Phil Foden (€8.1m). The Englishman has been a vital cog for his side not just domestically but in the Champions League too, scoring three goals and creating two in five matches.

Playing on the last night of Matchday 7 is Arsenal, a side with 16 goals in Group B. Therefore, not only should we invest in their attack but they need captaincy consideration. Bukayo Saka (€9.8m) remains a standout option. Not only does Saka take his side’s penalties but he delivered an impressive three double-digit hauls earlier on.

Completing the midfield is PSG’s Warren Zaire-Emery (€5.3m). The 17-year-old collected his own pair of group stage double-digit returns thanks to one goal, two assists and a Player of the Match award. Additionally, his brilliant price tag enables the budget to be used on others.

FORWARDS

France v Poland team news: Mbappe returns, Pavard a sub

Leading the Bayern attack is Harry Kane (€10.0m). A massive 29 goal contributions in the Bundesliga makes him one of Europe’s most prolific attackers this season – scoring four and assisting three in six Champions League matches.

Another forward that’s maintaining a world-class level of output is Kylian Mbappe (€11.5m). PSG have averaged around three goals over their last 10 matches and enter the Leipzig match in scintillating attacking form. So far this season, Mbappe has notched up 23 goals and four assists throughout Ligue 1 and the Champions League.

Completing the trio is Erling Haaland (€11.7m). The Man City penalty taker and focal point stands out as day one’s best captaincy option, having netted 21 goals over this campaign.

CAPTAINCY

FPL notes: Haaland superb, Calvert-Lewin + Ward-Prowse deeper

As mentioned, Matchday 7 provides UCL Fantasy managers with four opportunities to secure a captain they’re happy with. Haaland is recommended against Copenhagen on day one but some could be tempted to instead opt for a Real Madrid attacker against RB Leipzig, a side that failed to keep a clean sheet during the groups.

Now that Jude Bellingham (€7.9m) is injured, forward Vinicius Junior (€11.1m) could be their best option. The Brazilian seems to be in a good run of form, banking three assists and three goals in his last four matches.

The second day’s armband could be a tougher decision between Kane and Mbappe but the latter has the edge due to home advantage. Day three could be tricky too but, for those with Thuram, it shouldn’t be. Some could also try Dortmund striker Niclas Fullkrug (€7.5m) because of his penalties and the five goals and two assists he picked up over his last four matches.

On the final day, it’d be risky to not choose Saka. For those that insist on taking a different route, perhaps centre-backs Gabriel and Saliba could be good options.

    1FT & 2.4 ITB.
    Dubravka
    Estupinan Gabriel Maguire (Udogie) (Mykolenko)
    Saka Bowen KDB Bruno Garnacho
    Haaland Watkins (Archer)

    What 3rd City player do I bring in and who do I lose? If they didn't have a double Id just roll

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I would lose Bowen for Foden.

    2. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Foden or a defender I guess but you have zero liverpool? That's brave.

    3. DandyDon
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      got to be Bowen out for Foden

      1. Eightball
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Bowen plays in 29 though. West Ham admittedly havent been great but they do have some decent fixtures coming up as well. Not really a fan of Bruno right now with city in 27 and a likely blank in 29.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          It doesn't matter. You sell Bowen because you only have 5 mid slots and West Ham look awful.

          1. Eightball
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            It does matter because if you want to avoid freehitting in 29 you have to plan for it and Bruno has been equally crap.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 13 Years
              3 months, 15 days ago

              Sell both for Foden + Jota 😛

        2. Holmes
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          yeah, Bruno out before Bowen

  2. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    I really want Jota in my team but only way to get him is to lose Watkins and Palmer as part of a -4 or saka for free. Not worth it right?

    1. DandyDon
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      not with Salah back soon and Watkins you'll want for the blank as he's potentially a lot of peoples captain 26.

    2. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Losing Saka vs Burnley. What could go wrong there, haha. I wouldn't do that and losing Watkins isn't ideal when you will want him for the blanks coming up.

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Cheers all 🙂

    4. Gazwaz80
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      You can afford to lose Palmer for 2/3 weeks. Bad fixtures and a blank.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Palmer yes but Watkins?

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      There's really no other way? Can you sell a defender and turn Palmer > Jota?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Sadly no

    6. CRAZY TRAIN
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I’m in the same position and am considering either:

      Palmer > Luiz Dias
      Watkins > Nunez

      Favouring the latter as bough Palmer cheap, but owning TAA is uneeded complication.

  3. DandyDon
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    a) Robbo and Morris (-4 and bench Pedro Porro + Palmer)
    b) Darwin and Bell (-4 and bench Palmer, Bell more with a view to 28 and blank 29)

    For Joao Pedro and Baldock both injured

    As i want to go down this route i'll FH now the following week with the injuries, two spurs and chelsea assets as well as Jota it seems sensible even if 29 will now be a nightmare with probably even more blanks!

    c) Alternative would be bring in a 3rd City assest, Ake most likely for Pedro Porro which would leave me with only 6 players who can't play blank 26, would then do a -4 following week and be able to play 10 - is this attacking the double enough though with only one Pool asset?

  4. The Big Fella
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Ahoy mateys! I know TC Haaland is the flavour of the week for this GW but I wonder if saving it for a potentially juicier one later in the season is worth the risk?

    1. Gazwaz80
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      This is what I’m doing. I’ve gone B/B

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I am saving BB for a double I think

        1. Geriatric Unathletic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          This is a double, lol :).
          Yep BB for me this week. Saving TC for potentially Solanke 28.

    2. Kodap
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      is there a juicier double at any point?

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        34 or 37 may well be juicier

    3. Tinfoil Deathstar
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I think it just overthinking it tbh. Haaland at home for both fixtures and unlikely to be rested for either given the league is so close.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        You may be right

    4. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      The other likely DGW for Haaland is GW37 v either ful & bha, or ful & tot. Salah could double that GW as well v either avl/eve or avl/ful

      1. Tinfoil Deathstar
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        A bird in the hand...

        1. The Big Fella
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Exponentially increases the risk of avian flu?

      2. Geriatric Unathletic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Both could be desperate for a win at that point or have the title sewn up.

    5. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Aside from 28, the 'big' DGWs are forecast to be 34 & 7 right? I'm not totally clear on the protcols for moving GW34 fixtures into the midweek slots (of the same GW) but if City are in the FA Cup SF (also played GW34) then presumably they only double in 37 (which is maybe a bit late to leave TC)?

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Shiver me timbers! Fair point and Haaland may be rested that week too if City already have the league. I think I’ll just play it this week. Everybody else will and so at the very least I’ll be keeping up with the Joneses

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        If you are deadset on TC Haaland, you have two other possible double opportunities (assuming they advance in the FA cup 5th rd)

        DGW34 - bha tot
        DGW37 - ful tot

        I would say neither are better than this week.

        If you want to TC Salah (again, assuming they advance past FA Cup 5th rd) you have:

        DGW34 - eve ful
        DGW37 - avl ful

        I don't like any of those weeks more than Haaland in 25 or Solanke in 28. And I prefer Haaland because of the home fixtures.

        1. The Big Fella
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Good post cheers Camzy. Already activated TC for this week. Would love Salah to get 10-15 in the first game and maybe 40-60 in the second.

          1. The Big Fella
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Should make for a good GW if that happens, to make up for the terrible one just gone because of Arsenal result (sorry I hit post by accident before finishing the post)

        2. bitm2007
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          and if they advance to the 6th round neither can double in GW34.

  5. Tinfoil Deathstar
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Best option here? Narrowed my options down to the following:

    A) Dubravka -> Alisson (assuming he gets the all clear). Would mean a -4 in GW26 to get a full XI.
    B) Roll FT

    Dubravka
    Saliba - Gabriel - Walker*
    Saka - Gordon - Jota* - Foden*
    Haaland (TC)* - Darwin* - Watkins

    Bench: Areola; Palmer, Porro, Konsa.

  6. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Decided on my TC this week, but who does it go on.. obvious choice is Haaland?

    1. Haaland
    2. KDB
    3. Jota

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I bet against Haaland last week and will not being it again. Haaland TC.

    2. The Pep Revolution
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Has to be Haaland. Many are so if you don't then it could be very costly if he hauls.

    3. Wayne Enterprises
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I’ve just brought Haaland in this week for this very reason, not having him last wk killed me

  7. The Mentaculus

    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    FPL Price Manipulators isn't my boss? In any case...

    Anyone finished their UCL draft? Let's see 'em. I'm pretty happy with only 5/15 of the above:

    Remiro Sommer
    Hakimi Acerbi Dimarco Kim Maatsen
    KDB Foden Saka B.Diaz Yamal
    Haaland Vini Füllkrug

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I did a very quick draft whilst struggling to get out of bed this morning:

      Lunin - Sommer
      Ake - Hakimi - Kim - Acerbi - Saliba
      De Bruyne - Thuram - Diaz - Zaire-Emery - Saka
      Kane - Mbappe - Haaland

      Really lost interest in the Champions League this year. Think these RO16 matches are the most boring I can remember - I actually yawned when I saw the fixtures tonight.

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Solid, nice captaincy spread. I'm taking a little gamble on the Bayern game being tight but it could definitely backfire

      2. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Big night last night soft lad?

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          I wish! Was just absolutely freezing this morning!

          1. The Big Fella
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Grim. Doesn’t help when it’s pitch black when you get up for work

    2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Like it, like it.

      I'm more template and on:
      Lunin Sommer
      Ake Maatsen Süle Guerreiro DiMarco
      KDB Rodri Sané Musiala Zaire-Emery
      Kane Mbappé Haaland

      Man City teamsheet of course determines everything.

  8. Calippo
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Who to start with this week?

    A)Porro (WOL)
    B)Estu (SHU)

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Sure you can't start them both? But if forced to choose, Estupinan I think. But it's close.

      1. Calippo
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks, the other two defenders are Gvardiol and Gabriel. Could drop Gordon for Porro?

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Don't drop Gordon for Porro!

    2. La Roja
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Botj

    3. The Pep Revolution
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Yeah two good picks here. Both have attacking threat as well.

    4. Bruno Commando
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Start Estu for me. Both haven't been good recently so...not too fussed about it.

  9. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Thought this was an easy choice but now not so sure. Start one;
    A) Palmer (City)
    B) Watkins (Fulham)

    1. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I'm benching Palmer and hoping they don't get a pen.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      It is easy. Watkins.

      For me, I look to avoid benching a player that could get double digits. I can see Watkins getting double digits. I don't think Palmer can.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Doesn’t he have the most double digit hauls of the season so far? I agree with your recommendation but not the logic

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Yea he's got 6 double digits and scored against city already...doesn't mean he will again. Think I agree on Watkins though...he's capable of a haul and has the easier fixture. Cheers all.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          It's the fact it's City. They rarely concede more than 1. Although it was 4-4 at the Bridge...

  10. DagheMunegu
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    If TAA is out would you do

    TAA Palmer Porro to KDB and 2 def that play 26 and 29. Pau Doughty for exemple. -8 but sets me well for the gws to come

    1. The Pep Revolution
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Doughty doesn't play GW26 does he?

      1. The Pep Revolution
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Other than that yeah it should work out. Pity to get rid of players like Palmer but it has to be done.

      2. DagheMunegu
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        True but twice in 28 which compensates

    2. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I've got Doughty as well. I can see him being one of those DGW trolls honestly but good upside. I don't hate the moves though.

  11. La Roja
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Would you BB this lot?

    Areola Garnacho Branthwaite Mitchell

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Nope.

    2. No Professionals
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      nope

    3. The Pep Revolution
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Do you have any other chips left? For example if you had a WC you could WC in GW33 and then have an ideal team for the BB in GW34.

  12. The Pep Revolution
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Sorry for the repost but need help.

    Areola Dubravka
    Gabriel TAA Lascelles Porro Kabore
    Richarlison Jota Foden KDB Palmer
    Adebayo Watkins Haaland

    How would you navigate DGW25 and BGW26 with this team?
    DGW25
    6 DGW players but I am thinking of Palmer to Diaz to have more Liverpool cover. Will also get in someone playing BGW26.

    For BGW26 I currently have 6 players for this but will have another one after the hit this week and will take another hit going into the week to give me two more. Is this too many hits and is 9 players enough?

    Would appreciate any thoughts as I am behind in my mini leagues.

    1. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I think a lot is going to come down to TAA's fitness. I think you might be able to get away with rolling if he plays.

    Hello guys. Do you see anything worth a hit in here?

    Dubravka
    Estupinan, Porro, Doughty
    KDB, Foden, Gross, Saka, Jota
    Haaland, Watkins

    subs: Areola --- Gusto, Archer, Guehi --- 0 FT, 0.3 ITB

  14. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Areola (nfo), Watkins (ful), Cash (ful), Botman (BOU)

    BB that or Haaland TC?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      That's the sort of BB I can build and I'm leaning no (Burn + Carlos vs your Cash + Botman)

      Assuming your other GK is Dubravka, that's a lot of faith in Newcastle defense which I just don't have.

      The Fulham game as well, I don't see a CS for Villa with Konsa and Kamara out so then you're really putting all your faith in Watkins to haul big.

      It's just not quite good enough imo. If Newcastle defense were in top form and Cash was putting up big scores every week then I could be persuaded, but the form doesn't quite align.

      I'm gonna wait and join the hoards with BB34/37 when I can get more doublers in there.

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah, I don't have much hope outside of Watkins really. But I'm thinking even an 8-12 pt score might not be that bad

        The issue I see going forward is dead-ending to GW29 will leave me wanted to Wildcard in GW30. And then there's 7-8 weeks before BB for things to go wrong

    Hi all,

    I am sure many are in the same boat but I can field the below team in BGW26

    Raya
    Estupinan Taylor
    Fode Garnarcho Richar Saka
    Watkins Solanke Haaland

    Bench: TAA Porro Rich

    Which would you pick:

    A: Palmer to Jota this week (But means I can only field 10 in BGW)
    B: Save and have two transfers free next week
    C: Porro to Ake/Walker this week

    1. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Who is Rich? Have you listed Richarlison twice? I would def want some liverpool for this double though.

      1. Heiro
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Sorry, would be Palmer currently for the BGW. So its an empty spot.

        Ultimately Jota then as I have 3 forwards plying already.

        1. Eightball
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          I would maybe do A. I think 10 is fine for GW26 although Taylor might not be fit? who is your other bench defender?

          I'm in a similar boat where I have three playing defenders this week (inc trent) so if trent is out or likely to not play I will have to deal with that as well. You're going to want at least some pool cover.

          1. Heiro
            • 14 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Hey,

            Raya
            Estupinan Taylor
            Fode Garnarcho Richar Saka
            Watkins Solanke Haaland

            Bench: TAA Porro Trent

            I think Jota needs to play but I actually already have 4 mids and 3 forwrds this week. Could bench Solanke...

  16. The Big Fella
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Any news to suggest Salah is (not) back for the double or is everybody waiting for this too?

    1. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      He'll be back in some capacity but I doubt he starts Brentford really

      Looks like he's still only doing gym work today from that video Liverpool posted

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Cool I’ll start him then - he only needs 10-15 mins to score especially against tired legs and Liverpool need the points

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Wrote him off when Klopp said he hopes to return to "parts of training" this week

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Reckon he gets 10-15 minutes in both games at least or you think he should just walk the plank out of my starting 11?

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Oh it's tricky if you've been holding.... I guess just wait & see what Klopp says but tbh I wouldn't be surprised if he just gets 1-2 cameos

          1. The Big Fella
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            Yeah. My original plan was hold Salah and Son accepting I would lost ground in the OR and then make it up with an amazing team few people can afford without huge wholesale changes as Salah and Son don’t lose money. Injuries to Salah and other players forced my hand and I had to WC though so lost my advantage and lost OR (went from 300k to 1.1m). Team looks good but I need all my big players back and firing.

          Have you gone all Steve the Pirate from Dodgeball on us today?!

          1. The Big Fella
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            What a film! I liked Blue the most

    3. DaisyDaisyDaisyDaisy
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      More worried about Trent

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Don’t have him so understandably more concerned about the very expensive players eating up my budget and not returning

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Probably wrong assumption but it looks like Salah is still doing individual programme based on training gear (same as last week and yes big assumption/leap)

      https://twitter.com/LFC/status/1757372546981228964?t=fwmjYeUlmt4HvToyvlyVug&s=19

      1. The Big Fella
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Don’t follow you here sorry - you reckon he will or won’t play?

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Grade 2 torn hamstring, high risk of re-injury if rushed, appears to still not be in full team training and 4 days to Brentford game...what do you think?

  17. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    A) Konate & Foden
    B) Ake & Jota

    Do you think alvarez will play both the games for gw25?

    1. dubtom
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      i do yeah

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I expect Alvarez to start the Brentford game using same the setup in the reverse fixture. Chelsea game is

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Chelsea game is difficult to call.

    3. I Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Play both? Yes. Start both? Who knows.

    4. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Think his minutes will be alright but most of them will be spent deeper in midfield rather than at 9

  19. hogree
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Trent, Palmer, Solanke --> Ake, Jota, Nunez worth a hit?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Tempting anyway...

  20. Kane Train
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Would you do Porro > Gabriel??

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      In vacuum with no other context, yes.

  21. Rex Lapis
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Play Gusto or Senesi?

  22. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Save ?

    Dubravka
    Trippier Gabriel estu(Porro bell)
    Kdb Foden saka Palmer (nakamba)
    Haaland (TC) Watkins Darwin

    1ft 0.5 itb

    Cheers

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Anybody home ? 🙂

    2. Eightball
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Yes. I can't see any obvious moves to make and 2FT will be nice for the blank.

    3. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I'm considering getting rid of Palmer. He has a blank in 26 and some tough fixtures.

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Cheers all

  23. CRAZY TRAIN
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Palmer & Solanke > Jota and Nunez for -4?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      How does these transfers affect 26?

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        I can put out a reasonable team, may be a defender down if Charlie Taylor is still out

        1. FFS ManU
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 15 days ago

          In that case it is a good option to consider, especially since lots of people will have those 2 Liverpool players for the DGW.

    2. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Just the Palmer move I think. Could also consider Toney instead of Nunez to cover more games.

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Yes a good alternative thanks

  24. Kane Train
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Are people confident Triple Captaining Haaland ?

    1. In Like Flynn.
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      If not now then when?

    2. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Think it's the best opportunity. Don't know what will happen to Solanke next few weeks.

    3. The Big Fella
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I posted above and a lot of good replies there. TL;DR, I am doing it.

    4. Josh.E
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      am not but fomo

  25. Ëð
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Best Palmer replacement for next 3-4 weeks? Garnacho? 1FT, £2.5m ITB

    Dubruvka, Turner
    TAA, Porro, Gabriel, Turner, Baldock
    Saka, Foden, Jota, Palmer, Anderson
    Haaland, Watkins, Toney

  26. No Professionals
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Porro and Watkins to Ake and Toney for a hit?

    Would be getting Watkins back in for Darwin in 26 FWIW.

    1. Ëð
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      I think just Watkins to Toney

      1. No Professionals
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Porro or Watkins could realistically outscore Ake or Toney, but guess you have to roll the dice with the doubles.

        1. Ëð
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Would give you 2FT for the blank too.

          1. No Professionals
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 15 days ago

            doing neither would, yes.

            have doubts over both. Ake could easily get rotated, Toney could easily blank twice.

  27. Babit1967
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Has Gvardiol lost his place and does the bench look good, suppose Porro might come in for TAA regardless.

    Dubravka
    TAA Gvardiol Gabriel
    Saka Foden Jota Gordon
    Haaland (TC) Darwin Watkins

    Areola Porro Palmer Taylor

    Hoping to save ft so have 2 for the blank gw

  28. Bob B
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    This week:

    A. Son + Van Hecke
    B. Maddison + Doughty
    C. L. Diaz + Doughty (-4)

  29. HurriKane
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Is it safe to say England has the strongest team in the world? Surely the favorites in euro's and world cup.

    --------- Kane -------
    Foden Maddison Saka
    ----- Bellingham Rice -----
    Shaw Stones Colwill Walker
    --------- Pope -------

    Subs: Palmer Eze Toney Watkins Mainoo Reece James Trent Trippier

    Strength and depth is insane. Its coming home.!!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      It's a bit like in August and pre -season optimism when most football fans think that promotion is on!

    2. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Looks decent on paper, but I'm sure they will find a way of blowing it

      1. HurriKane
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Problem is Southgate will use dinosaur tactics and play Henderson or Kalvin Phillips over Maddison and shoe hone in Maguire in a back 3 over a Foden

        1. Now I'm Panicking
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          We'll have to wait and see I guess. March's friendlies could be interesting (well they won't be, but you know what I mean)

  30. Gudjohnsen
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 15 days ago

    Give me one good reason why I shouldn't use TC chip this weekend on Haaland?

    2 home fixtures against bad defences.

    1. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Use it then

    2. Bob B
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 15 days ago

      Team-dependent, if you have good subs then BB is possible. Otherwise TC.

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 15 days ago

        Not really.

        I got TAA, Cunha, Palmer, Branthwaite and Areola.

        Not really exciting.

        1. Bob B
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 15 days ago

          Would stick to TC then, but wait on TAA news
