Defense wasn’t great last year, only 14 clean sheets out of 46, and Fredericks was the only one who got forward a lot. Hard to say what our first choice back 4 will be, too. I’ve got Tim Ream in my team but not sure there’s any real value in any of our defense


#1607

in the league defoe only made 11 starts last year (13 apps as a sub) and got 4 goals so i can’t see many people bothering with him on the basis of him being first choice for pens


#1608

Yeah, that’s fair. King took two of the three penalties Bournemouth were awarded (and scored both).


#1609

Arsenal: Lacazette > Ozil
Liverpool: anyone’s guess. Fabinho took one a couple of days ago (and missed). Mane been taking them in pre-season. Salah was taking them when he was going for the record


#1610

Liverpool are tricky to call. There’s a load who might claim it but equally, I’m not sure Klopp’s that fussed about picking one player - hence multiple takers in pre-season. The boys on LFC TV were bigging up Fabinho’s penalty prowess during the game and then he stepped up and put it low and wide - not by much, mind.


#1611

Athelico Lin Marlow are in, although haven’t really watched football / done a fantasy league in about 5 years I reckon so this could be interesting.


#1612

Last year Cabaye would have been one of the three penalty takers. Now i’d probably say third choice would be James McArthur.


#1613

What do you reckon?

Ederson

Robertson / Shaw / Benalouane / Tomkins

Salah / Sane / Richarlison / Jota

Kane / Fimino

(Fabianski, Wan Bissaka, Stephens, Kamara)

I’m aware Kane might not start, in which case I’ll be bringing in Aguero until Kane is back… thoughts appreciated!


#1614

Might be a bit late for Rondon, but Newcastle won’t score against Spurs so don’t bother.

Can we pre-emptively assume I replaced the words ‘against Spurs’ with ‘ever’?

#1618

Not great to be honest.


#1619

what would you change?

midfield and defence are strong imo, strikers i’m going cheap and i’m ok with that


#1620

r9 don’t h9


#1621

Your defence is very strong. Although Lascelles is dodgy as Newcastle have an awful set of games to begin with. I wouldn’t have Silva. I would say you need one big player such as Salah, Kane, Aguero. The strikers you have are good and will get goals but not on the level of those I mentioned.


#1622

i don’t have Lascelles…

Hazard could score a bucket load


#1623

Sorry. I was looking at the one below yours. Ignore me.


#1624

If you’re talking about mine, I have Kane and don’t have Silva.
