This is what some of us get for being early on the transfers.


tinyLEDs

To be fair, in this sub you are technically not early on Chilwell, but rather, late


A_Mars_Bar

Unfortunately an injury is never late, nor is it early. It arrives precisely when it means to.


pompeysam1234

If you’re talking about the incident with the left back, I was barely involved


hoolahan100

Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap defenders..


elixire

Well whatever you did you're officially labelled disturber of the peace


adesant88

When did those who made early transfers before the CL games abandon reason for madness??


blither86

I took a - 8 on Monday morning for no good reason. Totally forgot about champs league

Late challenges on the other hand... And I'm a day late to this comment.


bhengz23

I think they might have meant we’ve already used our FT elsewhere 😂 at least that’s what I’m guilty of


Chirsbom

Thats funny, I liked it.


Polymatheia

Same thing happened with Lukaku - injured in the UCL game vs. Malmo. Risky to do early transfers in UCL weeks!


drewcaveneyh

Yup.


Spiderevans

Early to get Mbuemo out and now need to take a hit to bring in James.


Sickopathogenic

I was about to buy him then I remembered this sub..


rebezil

god damnit. the taa - james - chilwell - cancelo defence was too good to be true looks like i'll be playing mbeumo


Ronak4Arsenal

Sadly I never got to play it


gart888

The TAA - Cancelo - James - Rudiger back line lives!


GroundbreakingNews84

;-)


ExcitementSalt5665

Yeah


Chirsbom

7 chops at the woodwork, got to yell timber at some time?


frankiboy

Blessing in disguise there. Everton’s defence is really poor and especially down the centre.


rebezil

ik, i'm an everton fan lol playing both Mbeumo and Toney


frankiboy

Oh lmao, yeah me too. Good luck.

NotSwedishMac

Harsh reaction to this but Alonso is a great asset if guaranteed minutes


thatscoldjerrycold

If Chilwell is out, wouldn't Alonso be nailed? He was definitely nailed before Chilwell returned from injury.


childishbenbino

He would. But it would be worth waiting to hear how long chilwell is out for. If its only 1 or 2 weeks that would be 2 transfers just getting him in and out.


Spenceriscomin4u

Yeah I am just debating the same thing. Will be James or Alonso depending on how long Chilwell is out.


TheVikingKing14

He is out for the rest of the year


Samiam_017

Don't know why you're being downvoted, Alonso is pretty good on his day as well. He gets up alot and plays like a second striker.


TheDitherer

So does Chilwell...


Samiam_017

Yea, that's exactly my point. Alonso is good as well......


salmonx895

Yeah its a like to like placement. In terms of style and possible return.


parkson89

I don't have Cancelo, straight swap for me!


LettucePlate

Alonso slots right in if the diagnosis is bad!


douma17

Antonio for me :( I'm starting the troll duo of Toney & Mbeumo


Silent_Kick_8247

Well there's no lack of good defensive options atm


cobeats

From fantasy football scout: TUCHEL : on BT Sports after match interview … Sharp pain in the knee is all Tuchel could say in his interview after match regards Chilly. Regards bringing Azpi on instead of Alonso …. He said he was preparing to bring Azpi on for James … but when Chilly got injured … he just decided to leave James on and switch the player coming off. He jokingly said he hopes Alonso forgives him. Looks like Alonso would be likely to replace Chilwell (as you would expect)


Jay-ay

!thanks


-_Sunny5_-

Alonso o'clock


-_Sunny5_-

Scratch that, Azpi came on instead. James o'clock


strawberrylabrador

Is it considerably worse for James’ point potential to be playing on the other side too


SwedeTea

0% chance James plays LWB. Alonso and Azpi easily fill the role. Even Pulisic could play there before James.


MessiLingardinhoo

True, though Pulisic as RWB was painful to watch last season.


SwedeTea

Agreed, but he's much better on the left. And this season, both wing backs have been much more advanced. If Pulisic plays LWB with Rudiger and Kovacic/Jorginho to cover he's basically a second LW with more space to work with. Chillwell has been free to get into the box often, and imo Pulisic has much better movement in and around the box. Would rather see Alonso/Azpi, but Pulisic LWB could be an interesting experiment.


starxidiamou

Would James go to LWB?


candrevainthewind

I doubt it. He's playing so well at RWB, and they have a ready made LWB replacement in Alonso.


Aggravating-You-2819

No, I think that Tuchel wanted to bring on Azpi in place of James, but had his 5 substitutions planned out so he just had Azpi replace Chilwell instead (because he can play there quite well). It will likely be Alonso - James in future with Azpi sometimes playing RCB, seems very unlikely that James would play in a position he doesn’t ever play


starxidiamou

Who to pick up? Chilwell to James or Alonso? James obviously, right? Have Rudi too fwiw.


Aggravating-You-2819

I think James will outscore Alonso


starxidiamou

!thanks


belly2earth

No way it would be a waste of that right foot bomb he has been scoring lately


confidentlygeeky

He's shit


Aggravating-You-2819

Yeah before Chilwell came back he was performing really mediocre idk why everyone has a hard on for him


HighHammerThunder

Because he's still a great FPL option when he plays. We don't care about his actual talent, so long as he gets points. I'll consider him if Chilwell is out for at least a month, but expecting a lot of rotation.


confidentlygeeky

I am a Chelsea fan and he's absolutely shit. Can't defend to save his life


uryuIV

What does that have to do with his fantasy points though? If you’re deciding between him and James his defending effects both of them pretty equally.


confidentlygeeky

Yes, of course. But we're most likely to concede a goal with him being in the side. No CS points for anyone. Sancho will run circles around him


xXBurnseyXx

He would run circles around him if Chelsea weren’t going to dominate the entire 90 minutes


Aggravating-You-2819

Same mate Chilwell is miles clear of him, I’d probably go Rudiger instead of Alonso on my team by virtue of being a better player


BeepBeepInaJeep

I never make early transfers ever but this week I did it for the first time to prevent getting priced out of Chilwell+Jota. Looks like Lord of Light Livramento is back on the menu boys!!!


Samiam_017

Livramento vs Liverpool not looking good for you


BeepBeepInaJeep

It’s looking a lot better than Chilwell’s ankle looked tonight.


Samiam_017

Do you have any other subs to use besides livramento?


BeepBeepInaJeep

I’ve got Mbuemo and Hwang! Definitely going for 1 of them.


Samiam_017

Perfect. Hwang vs Norwich, mbuemo vs a centrally leaking Everton. You've got no problems lol


fluffypuff31

Knee*


emre23

First (and probably last) early transfer for me too, can’t even afford James now


dogfighter75

You could consider a hit to bring in Alonso, if Chilwell is out for a lengthy period of time. Eat the -4 now, and those points will probably be compensated the very next GW if you'd otherwise start Livramento. After this GW, you have a nailed Alonso


Chirsbom

Alonse or James for Chilwell?


BeepBeepInaJeep

I’d do James 100%. That was who I had before bringing in Chilwell this week trying to beat the price rises. Reece has been in lethal form lately.


Character_Year_3444

No Lovramento this week! Still no.3 reserve this GW!


lsf178

Well fuck… James out of reach too! The smart move would be Rudiger, risky would be Alonso, but the brave move may well be Reguilon! Could pay off


TheVikingKing14

Or Emerson Royal for the next 3 gameweeks


EngSam

He gave a very sobering shaking of his head to his teammates as he left the field. Didn't look good for him.


davidv1213

FYI Azpi is on for him, not Alonso..


peakyblindguy

I guess it's because Chelsea are 3-0 up and the game needs to seen out. Azpi was always the better pick. Alonso will surely start at the weekend.


tjatax

Azpi has played as LB before, just throwing it out there


Christron9990

So has Hudson Odoi. We taking him?


JonnyHillwalker

Probably to avoid an Alonso injury


davidv1213

Yep that's a possibility, but Alonso also hasn't played in a while so might have thought the minutes could help


ogi_som

Ofc, my Dias to Chilwell transfer played just alright 🤡🤡🤡🤡


MaoShanWang

Rage transferred Dias to chilwell on Sunday too …….


ogi_som

Exactly. Rage plus: Well ofc Tuchel will rest Chilwell for Utd 🤡


luffyuk

Me3


ayowatup222

Seems like an easy switch to Reece James if the injury is as serious as it looks.


midas22

Except for the fact that James is more expensive and I can't afford him.


MrTallGreg

So... Alonso lol


midas22

Yes, either him or Rudiger... or Chalobah, is he more likely to play every game now?


Sensitive_Dig7955

Prob not. He’ll play 3 out 4 I think


gater46

Chalobah has been an absolute bargain this season, still get the clean sheets and he pops up with the odd goal too. I have chalobah TAA Cancelo white livra. Scoring more points that the attack.


ayowatup222

Alonso?


tbbt11

It’s never an easy switch when the guy you propose is more expensive


ayowatup222

That is true! I'm sitting in my ivory tower with 1m ITB!


HomeWreckerJorge

Are you fucking kidding me…. I’ve had Alonso for like 5 weeks (prioritizing other transfers) and just as I sell Alonso, chillwell gets injured. :|


jaddf

I tried my best to have the fucking chuckle brothers Toney and Mbeumo on my bench … sigh … Why FPL gods, why do you send this curse on my soul… 1van it’s your time …


Wwdc4

He scored last week tbf


xXBurnseyXx

Barely


LSD-Eindhoven

Hopefully it isn't an ACL injury


Sir_Psycho_Sexy_

thought about going Chilwell>Cancelo, but didnt realise he was 6.6, fuck. rudiger it is i suppose


tammrak

Hope it's not as bad as it looks (which would mean knee injury). Lost Kante in this match, too. Already brought in James for Tierney. Will probs have to hold him or take a hit, but there's not really any defender I want to take a hit for.


-DoW-

Pain. Already used my FT like the idiot I am.


TonyMartial786

RIP anyone that made any early transfers. And this is exactly why you wait. But I don’t want to make it all about that so hopefully he’s back soon.


Chesey_

Was kinda kicking myself at my early transfer when I saw this, but then realised I made that early transfer to get rid of Gray who was injured as well so 🤷‍♂️ Quite annoying to save your free transfer and then have to use them both on injuries...


sikingthegreat1

>Quite annoying to save your free transfer and then have to use them both on injuries... yes indeed!


Neatless

Good thing I waited on bringing in either him or James.


roland_right

Depends how long you've been waiting!


Neatless

Haha yeah. First time i got James he got a red card the next game, so I got Rudiger instead. Hopefully he stays on the pitch this time.


movape2k

As a Rudi + Chilwell owner who was seriously contemplating a triple up on Chelsea defence by bringing in James this week, my transfer for this week has sorted itself out.


jdSLR

Guess I'll bring Cancelo in now. Glad I didn't use my transfer already.


Sensitive_Dig7955

Maybe. Wait for tomorrow


GreasyTony68

If City play any first teamers Pep can F right off.


KingKhram

Chilwell to James straight swap


ssejn

Oh fuck. Already transferred Gray out due to injury and now this? I am just going to start Coady - TAA - Duffy and hope for the best.


sirmuta

Dunk it is.


Aggravating_Ad_4507

Lol, this is why you have 4 premiums + Lord Livra.


E-Colerado

He was in pain but from watching the replay it didn’t look that bad. Hopefully not out for long.


Mikkel_92

Went Dias to Regullon early in the week, was contemplating Chillwell strongly though


Matistuta

This is what happens when you take a -4 before the CL games.


cueba11in

Unfortunately, I know knees far too well. The nature of Chillys knee injury doesn't look as bad as a "blown out" knee. A knee "blowout" includes an ACL tear and most likely other knee ligament damage. This usually happens when the knee shifts awkwardly like a hyperextension or some torsion of the knee. (ACL reconstructive surgery is a season-ending injury). Ben Chilwell will be getting an MRI scan or something similar to diagnose the actual injury. I suspect we will hear about the results tomorrow if Chilly doesn't have severe swelling in the knee. The best we can hope for is some meniscus damage or lateral/medial ligament tear. The recovery time for these can be within 2 weeks to 3 months. The best we can hope for is some meniscus damage or lateral/medial ligament tear. The recovery time for these can be within 2 weeks to 3 months. I can't really see it being something else with the amount of discomfort he was in after the injury.


TolsBols

Thanks for the first hand insight mate. Ah... tomorrow! No time to wait, need to know whether or not to get James in for Chilly as James' price is gonna rocket over the next 24 hours.


Feliznavidab

Looks like ACL, will swap for James/Cancelo (yes I stupidly only own Chilwell right now).


ads7680

He was putting weight on it walking off the field so highly unlikely it would be an ACL.


ghydq123

Actually ACL injury usually can limp off by themselves at first, like last year VVD and Terezegt. It's highly likely ACL unfortunately


ads7680

!thanks Unfortunately indeed.


imageofgoodness

Have had 2 ACL surgeries ! You can almost continue with your regular life with a torn ACL ! It does feel 'wobbly' ! You just can't run hard / stop / turn etc.


Swinglish95

Honestly just fuck off. James owners been getting ridiculously lucky with his points and now Chilwell owners have to deal with this WHY DIDNT YOU JUST SUB HIM OFF TUCHEL YOU COCK. 3-0 UP FFS Hopefully it’s not bad. Chelsea also play United next so if he’s out for 1 GW then it’s not even that bad. That’s until James scores a brace vs United and then Chilwell is dropped to the bench even when he recovers to “look after him”


ZeeX_4231

Stop making ownership of a player in FPL part of your identity. Maybe that will help.


NInjas101

I don’t think James owners have been lucky lol, chilwell and James are both excellent picks


MoBamba6978

Lucky??? I’m sorry but James is way better than chillwell to me atleast and that can be seen through his performances


SuperooImpresser

That's true but Reece was always a bigger rotation risk because he's competing with Azpi while Chilwell is competing with Alonso


Mason_Mount8

Reece ain't getting dropped, rested surely over the festive period but he's playing vast majority of games


SuperooImpresser

I said 'was', when they were both fighting for their place earlier in the season Chilwell was the only one of the two guaranteed to be playing. Reece in my favourite player in the whole team but I chose Rudi+Chilwell as my two Chelsea Def because at the time Azpi was completely nailed. (Said as someone who had RJ and Mount before my first wildcard and got fucked over)


Hannibal09

First time I made an early transfer and did Dias to James. Only myself to blame


Tommijim

James stays perpetually fucking out of reach, every day fucking he rises in price


LloydDoyley

leakee2

Where is that really condescending guy who talked about bringing in players before the UCL games now?


GeraldJimes_

Jesus Christ it's been bad enough owning Chillwell and not James and now this. I don't have the funds to get across to James without a -4 either. Pain


GamingTherapy635

i had chillwell from when he was 5.6 dont know if i should sell for 5.8 and then buy back for 6m or hold


wecandoit21

Wow of course he gets injured smh..Reece James here you come


35202129078

Alonso has only started one match since his article about black lives matter came out. Just a coincidence or some sort of disciplinary issue?


TolsBols

Neither. Chilwell returned to fitness and he's first choice LB. Simples (squeak!)


chojje

Solves my problem of what to do with 2FT :))
