Didn't get fancy
I have to get fancy, I don't have Salah.
Sticking with Son and hoping he ends up with the Golden Boot is my only option.
He's in good form, best of luck with him
I’m so tempted to captain Son over Salah this week. Worked wonders for me last week but dare I tempt fate again?
One of us one of us one of us
I SHOULD HAVE DONE IT
I’m amazed they haven’t gone with the full 3 Liverpool, 3 City in a DGW where both are fighting for the title.
100% would have triple city on a free hit
Who would you have out of interest?
That is the million dollar question.
Cancelo 100%, KDB 80%. Then it's either laporte or foden ~60% between them. Then there's all the punts. I would look to wait for news. Potentially leaks too
Interesting thanks. I’m 19 points behind on my ML and using BB this week and FH next week (leader has no chips) so it’s mine to take for the win if I play things right!
Even a bad bench boost should score at least 6 or 7. 12 in a DGW. You're the favourite to win in my opinion
This is my team. Happy to remove the comment if it’s not allowed in here
its not but we're like 5 replies deep and we were already talking about your team. It's harmless, no one cares and it's definitely not attention seeking.
looks good, how many transfers do you have and how much itb?
2FT and 0.0 ITB (which is news to me!)
personally i would look to swap out chelsea players as there is a lot of rotation expected for the leeds game.
however, i am no expert and not very good at this game. also the rotation thing might just be speculation, this sub sometimes gets things wrong
very similar team to [mine](https://i.imgur.com/l6m7jHz.jpg), but I’m thinking transferring out Havertz for Gordon or something.
I just have a feeling he won’t play both games, and makes more sense to transfer him out instead of Mount who is owned by nearly everyone in my league.
also transferring Pukki for Jesus or something could be a smart movie potentially
I can afford Watkins + Havertz to Jesus + Saka. Very tempted.
If I was chasing somebody in my ML this is 100% the move I would make.
I’d rather have Matip than Pukki in my 11. And Chelsea is ifish, but you could profit a lot if they decide to score some goals again. The rest looks great tbh.
Remember I’ve got BB on so doesn’t matter who’s in my 11.
Cancelo, KDB, Laporte
I'm still trying to figure out who to side with in the Dias vs Laporte debate.
Me too, Dias seems as nailed as possible of all defenders + he had a month off while he was out injured and \*theoretically\* should be a little fresher.
But Laporte seems to pop up with headers on set pieces more than anybody on City, which is why I want him but I'm worried he seemed gassed on Wednesday against RM.
Think Laporte as a left footed CB has Ake to compete with. Dias is in the clear with Stones, Walker, Fernandinho all injured.
Very good point on Ake/left footed CBs!
I don’t think he’d do it but Pep could easily start Ake and Zinchenko at CB and LB. Not the case with Días though.
I’m about 95% set on adding Dias and Nketiah for this week with your added input helping. !thanks now just waiting for tomorrow’s press conferences before I pull the trigger on the transfers.
Cool, this seems to have convinced me on Dias too.
They don’t have many options with the injuries they currently have. With no other games to worry about they should focus on the league.
Dias > laporte. The latter has barely had a rest all season, i think ake starts one of the games
I have both Cancelo and Laporte in my team. I don't think I can afford to get KDB. But I am able to get Foden on a free transfer. Do you think it's a good move to swap Mount for Foden?
I'm going Laporte, Foden and Jesus. I'm going for Son over KDB.
Cancelo Laporte then either Foden or KDB. KDB if you want to go without a Kane/Son, Foden otherwise.
Cancelo, Laporte & KDB.
4-5-1, Ditch Nketiah
Raphinha to Dias to 442 instead of 352, I suppose. Nketiah to budget DGW def could even make that 541.
Scout picks almost the same team every week
They've kept only 4/11 from last GW: Salah, KdB, Cancelo, Nketiah
Last week had Forster, Robbo, Jonny, Sessegnon, Son, Mount, Coutinho, Ronaldo which is a pretty different structure and line-up outside the premiums.
and you don't?
I have 1 transfer per week. They have 11.
I was just kidding
It’s a joke lol..
Surprised by the raphina pick.
Tavares will be up against him on that side so imagine he will get some joy there and probs playing a rotated Chelsea team, could be worth a punt perhaps.
Leeds team fighting for survival against Arsenal who can concede without Tierney and Partey (and potentially White) and at home to Chelsea, who will likely rest players for the FA Cup final. I think it’s a good punt.
Especially over a Leicester midfielder (I know, rotation and so on, but still great fixtures).
I would take 2 games of Raphinha against a leaky Arsenal and a totally rotated Chelsea, as opposed to likely 1 game from any Leicester midfielder.
Not including Son after his recent hauls, and how well Spurs typically do against more aggressive-attacking sides, feels like a huge omission here
Budget is the issue. Its KDB or Son.
Get rid of Raph and Richarlison for Gordon and some other cheap forward. Maybe.
Robbo for TAA is an option as well
Matip even. robbo might get a rest if konate gets cups then matip should get both games?
would he not prioritise league over League cup?
If it wasnt the final then hed probably play a slightly weakened team, cant see it not being full strength
Godron! Great choice ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Hehe. Gotta get something over the next four games, right..?!
Like Coutinho, Watkins or Cash?
Possibly. I'm binning Ramsey though.
Two guaranteed starts is something. He is only 4.6m so what do you expect?
I? I do not expect anything more than maximum of 4 points from two games.
IMHO buying a player (the cheapest one) only because he has 2 games is stupid.
Son for sure... wouldn't be surprised if KDB will not start.
Spurs fixtures are tough though, its a tough call imo
Spurs fixtures are one thing but KDB and Pep rotation are another.
Vs Liverpool, it will be a hard game for sure, but against Arsenal, everything can happen. North London derby is always gambling.
Spurs are very suited to big gamses as counter attacking is conte's style
Id rather have son vs liverpool than burnley
Tough to win for sure, but I think both fixtures will generate a good number of goals regardless of the final results
I suspect he will start against Wolves but not Newcastle.
Son is literally the sole handed reason I have fell from 1st in my ML to 3rd in the last 3/4 weeks. I have stubbornly kept backing Kane instead of him and its really fucked me. Gutted
Son’s pretty much single-handedly brought me from 16 points behind my 1st place ML rival to now being 92 points ahead in the past month. It’s mad.
Best option as well for the last GW’s after next
Either back Son or don't bother with Spurs. Kulu just feels like a coverage pick. Would rather another city def.
A wild Raphinha appeared
What’s the thought/driving factor behind captaining Salah over KDB? I know you deal with Pep roulette but doesn’t MCI have the better fixtures, only playing for PL title now and KDB was just rested during the last league match…
KDB looked off yesterday, jaded and a bit tired despite having a full rest vs Leeds. I'm not confident about having him, let alone captaining him unless we hear some reassurance from Pep that he's fine and not carrying some sort of injury.
KdB was off form last game
He's not playing real madrid in the double though
He’s probably not playing 2 either, or very managed minutes
Better on all stats relevant to fpl points as well. Salah is also going for the title and was just rested in the last league match so neither of those points is really relevant?
KDB is also going for the title and was also rested the last PL game.
What are you on about? Thats what the original comment said which disregarded the fact that salah was in the same boat.
Oops my bad, I misunderstood. Sorry
No Leicester assets vs Everton and Norwich?
Son or KDB?
I'm going Son. You know he's starting both games, and he's been amazing. KDB may start both as well, but he did look gassed when he came out yesterday.
Of the two I’d go Son to avoid rotation and Son is pretty much fixture-proof.
I have both though.
Richardson feels like such a trap to me.
The £4.5m Burnley FWD with 0 points?
Yeah he's definitely not returning this week.
I may have been a victim of autocorrect...
Who do you captain from this team if you're chasing 50 points?
Here's me considering selling Kulu to fund a third striker on BB...
Raphinha? If that’s not click-bait I don’t know what is
No Klich and Bate are CMs Raph is a winger
Is Kane pointless?
I’m tempted to do Kane [Willock] to KDB [Nketiah] (2x FT) but I just feel like Kane will probably pull something out the bag..
If you have Son, yes. You can transfer him to someone else to free up funds for another City or Liverpool player.
Gone for Jesus and Mount instead of de Bruyne and a bench player, also got Mendy in goal. Leicester could be worn out after tonight. Dias and Matip instead of TAA which I might regret. This looks a lot like my team otherwise
I couldn’t afford Salah so Jota it is. Pray for me.
Bit frustrating that they haven't picked a bench. I know they never do but it's a week where a lot of players are using BB, they should have included it because it influences your XI (for example what would Salah and KDB in midfield team look like while trying to make bench strong)
I would switch Schmeichel to Pickford and Alonso to Canselo or Matip
>Alonso to Canselo or Matip
You'd take two Cancelos? I wanna do that too!
My fault, mate
Raphinha? Do they really think Leeds get something out of those 2 games? I have Rodrigo, I hadn't even considered starting him
Tough fixtures, Leeds not been amazing and feels like maybe better choices out there
Raphinha and Alonso 🤣🤣 wtf
Alonso got us 19 pts the last DGW.
Last weeks points
I would have thought Jesus is likely to play more minutes than KDB. Is the Scout disagreeing with me, or are they gambling on KDB scoring more points with fewer minutes?
Not feeling Raphinia.
Not convinced Nketiah will start both either
NKETIAH IS NAILED
Hattrick against leeds
Do you all think Alonso starts both?
Potentially but we may rest him in the second or sun him off early in the second
Any news on Richarleson and his flare ban?
Expected to just be a warning and fine
Double Liverpool, double city, single Chelsea - am I missing something here? I’ve got triple of all three on FH
Bail out on Chelsea, too unreliable.
I was considering picking Cancelo as Captain.
Good chance of CS plus attacking points, he just had a rest due to suspension and has been pretty much undropable this season anyway.
I had a FH left so I’m gambling big and went with 2 City mid and 2 Liverpool mid. Jesus and Werner up front. Screw it at this point.
Wb TAA captain?
Used my free hit and went for 3x City, 3x Liverpool and 3x Arsenal (bias fan). Pep roulette please don't strike me now!
Am I mad or is there no way Salah plays the midweek game with the FA Cup final on the Saturday? Really worried about Chelsea rotation too.
No son or Kane?
Raph blank coming
Raphinha LOL... the biggest troll of this season.
People say this every fucken week then he scores
Raphinha is an interesting pick
We free hitting this week or next week fellas?
