Cheers. Feels a tough choice though, not much in it! I guess Justin vs Kiko is possibly the tightest call, assuming I start Saiss regardless.

Need two from...

Egan
Robertson
Mendy
Dendoncker
Pukki

alongside...

Pope

Lascelles
Saiss

KDB
Mane
Mahrez
Saka

Auba
Jimenez

But now that Liverpool have wrapped up the title, might plump for Robertson Doherty

Just submitted where I am.....

Soton are playing well, despite being safe (ie Arse match) and Bou are trying... but strangely look better atb than going fwd and Toon are beyond caring\capable of scoring?

Feel like I’ve made life difficult for myself by WC’ing to 3 playing subs but I need to bench 3 from:
AWB
Alonso
DCL
Saka
Greenwood

Currently starting the first two as defences seem to be on top.

Would u play Nketiah or DCL?
I really want to play Nketiah due to the great fixture (Norwich at home) but am also afraid he might not start

I’d go DCL personally but don’t see much in it. Think Leicester are in the cup still (?) so will have shorter break times than Everton.

Tough one to call, I would personally play Robertson and Pukki out of those for their attacking returns. The Doherty transfer is a good one this week (I have him myself) although there is a chance of a benching.

I would definitely be benching the last 2, feel like DCL is due a goal so it would be a coin toss for the last spot. I don’t really rate Man Utd defensively and Alonso always has the chance of being benched.

Looking at benching TAA and VVD so I can have Mount and Saka playing.

Madness?

Ditching Robertson for AWB, so not really madness.

I'm thinking of playing Saka over KDB (others are Pulisic, Martial, Fernandes, Auba, Rashford and Jiminez).

Think pens swing it for KDB though.

Similar here, thinking of playing Nketiah over KDB (as ridiculous as that sounds!). However, part of me thinks Auba will be given a rest in FA cup match while Nketiah might get gametime. So that puts a bit of doubt in him starting against Norwich.

I think Saka will be rested in FA cup and play the Norwich match, but KDB could still edge him. Very tempting to punt though especially if looking to make up ground in rank.

Nketiah (NOR) or AWB (bha). Which to bench?

Damn that's a proper dilemma. It really feels 50-50 to me. AWB is nailed for either a 6 pointer or a 2, with slightly more chance of a 6, while Nketiah has a higher ceiling but lower floor probably. Tough one.

Lascelles
Saiss

Saka
KDB
Mahrez
Mane

Auba (TC)

SUBS (in order)

Henderson
Donck
Egan

Lascelles, all day long. West Ham harmless without Hallier.

And Greenwood, even if he nabs a GC off the bench, it's a better chance than Traore (may not start) and Richarlison (against a possibly stubborn Tottenham).

That's the way I was leaning though Digne is always good for attacking points so it does bother me slightly. Thanks

Worst case scenario with Digne:

Loves a card.

Spurs have a good shutout and a flurry of goals which they are capable of.

Was planning on finishing the season 3-4-3 with ASM on the bench as the first sub in case one of my front seven didn't start, but given his 15pts this week and playing WHU next week I might have to play him instead of one ofmy planned starters, would mean benching one of

Martial
Son
Kdb
Fernandes

Jesus
Jiminez
Kane

any suggestions?
