    Antonio is at home to Palace

    Ah feck, I knew I'd goof. I can only edit the post not the options, sorry about that

    Probably Antonio at home to Palace if he doesn't injure himself tonight! No Bruno for me and Wolves have done alright defensively, not sure if I'd go with Greenwood. Chelsea have had a really strong start so I'd rule out Salah I think, I don't see a lot of goals in that one for Liverpool. Not sure about Ings if he's not on penos.


    Mahrez tempts me, as Arsenal have had a poor start and Mahrez only played 15 in the last match, but you're running the risk of Pep roulette.

    I have a load of decent (C) picks with no one standing out.

    Mahrez - Pep roulette

    Salah - Home to a good defence

    Ings - Brentford 2 clean sheets so far

    Bruno - Looked toothless at the weekend

    Benrahma - He's no Antonio..

    In short, haven't a breeze yet.

    People very quick to pile on Ings??

    Ings might be a good punt/differential at this stage of the season with no reliable City picks and Liverpool/Chelsea playing each other.

    Antonio my pick against a palace team trying to play it out. Brentford well orgsnised.

    Pain in hole not being able to quote parts of a post, but on the Salah comment and the solid Chelsea defense - playing against Crystal Palace and a depleted Arsenal team doesn't mean that their defense is solid. On paper it looks good, but has it been really tested? Also who knows what players will play on Saturday. At start of season, would you have thought Christensen would be starting both games, or that Chilwell/Silva be dropped or that Chalobah would be starting games.

    Salah could easily have had a monster score last weekend but was very unlucky - unlike say Bruno who was anonymous. So best on his form, playing against his old team, and the nature of the game i think i would fancy Salah to score.



  • Registered Users Posts: 344 ✭✭ KurtBarlow


    Yea I have both Ings and Antonio , tempted to captain either . But I also have Son



  • Registered Users Posts: 344 ✭✭ KurtBarlow


    Lukaku should definitely be an option. I have a feeling Chelsea are going to beat Liverpool

    To be fair Chelsea’s defence since Tuchel took over has been fantastic. It hasn’t just been the last few games we’ve witnessed it.

    Hard not to be pick Antonio after tonight.

    I'd imagine most people will go with Antonio now. He and West Ham are in great form. Palace, on the other hand, look poor.

    I know this sounds stupid (esp with streams), but I think I've always captained a player where the match is on TV, and of course West Ham v Palace isn't.

    Antonio is the firm favourite on the Fantasy Football Scout poll with 31% of the more than 11k votes so far.

    Last time I captained him his dodgy hamstring went after 20 mins.


    But I'm still tempted.

    Calvert-Lewin is my pick



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,195 ✭✭✭ nullObjects

    I've changed to Kane, was waiting for the presser to check there wasn't a niggle or anything

    Decided to make my transfer today instead of tomorrow so Twitter doesn't sway me. Will see how that works out



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,131 ✭✭✭✭ Muahahaha

    Have the armband on him now and dont think I'll change it before deadline. On his hamstrings he came out and said he has totally changed his lifestyle and diet this season and he feels it has helped a lot with fitness. Its still a punt but if not now at the start of the season then when. I wouldnt do it with 3 games to go but GW3 is fine as if it doesnt work out theres still lots of time to catch up. He's in form and its a decent home fixture v Palace.

    Kane is probably the most obvious pick this week v Watford after he scored twice last night but most dont own him yet.

    No Antonio so rolling the dice with Benrahma 



  • Registered Users Posts: 677 ✭✭✭ whatawaster81

    Me either. Between Son and DCL so taking on a punt on DCL. Everton have started well.



  • Registered Users Posts: 597 ✭✭✭ joeyboy11

    I just transferred him in so it would be kind of tempting. You not worried about Brighton having a decent defence?

    Although I think I heard somewhere they are poor on set pieces so DCL could have some joy there.



  • Registered Users Posts: 677 ✭✭✭ whatawaster81

    They've only played Burnley and Watford. Think Everton will be a different test. He's on pens as well.

    It's still a punt because I'm not backing Pool Chelski.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,083 ✭✭✭ Chesty08

    Going with Salah.

    Not convinces with Chelsea’s rotations at the back & feel they’ll be caught out.

    I love the evening games too & with Liverpool at home, I’m taking a chance on him
