Gameweek 4 Martial replacement?

Post by Payet » 29 Aug 2019, 19:59

It is my first hit of the season, so I would really appreciate if admins let me run this poll. There are several options for GW4. I am really tempted to Sigurdsson and Pulisic. Any opinions who could be the top scorer among those I put in the poll?

Also, all the other suggestions are more than welcome.

Lanzini for me. Good fixture and looks sharp. Haller banging the goals in now, I think they will link up well together.

I'd imagine the most popular answer right now would be Mount. None of the players in the poll appeal that much to me really, but I'm intending to have a look through the options more closely later this evening.

It might be worth looking at some different options, Bernando for example? Or some cheaper guys like Ceballos too.

I put in the poll only the players I can bring in.

Already have 3 city players and Moura...

Mount yes... if he is 100% fit?

What about Zaha... very interesting fixture...

But where is his head at? That's my main worry with Zaha. I think the stats answer will be Mount from what I know of his underlying stats, and I'm sure we will get an indication of his fitness tomorrow.

As a side note, If it's a poll constrained to your team specifically I'll have to move it to the RMT section, if it's more of a general purpose Martial replacement thread (as would be useful for many I'm sure) then it can certainly stay in the main FPL forum. If you'd like me to move it then let me know :)

Gonna wait for OGS's press conference before making any moves. Martial is a season keeper for me, so if he is going to miss just one/two gameweeks, I think I'll hold

Remember that there's no EPL next week due to internationals, so he's got 2 weeks to get himself fit. Unless something more comes out in the presser, i'm assuming it's nothing too serious and you should include the possibility of rolling him as a sub for just the 1 game (unless something else has materially changed that means you no longer consider him a good candidate for your team).

if your team is as per your link, then i would think rico might get a game (daniels injury), greenwood might get the nod in place of martial, and femenia will probably play. You've got more than enough cover for a 1 week bencher.

I don't think you need to take a hit either, you have Greenwood on your bench how could start with Martial out injured + you have no spare cash so probably couldn't afford to buy Martial back after the international break - I would be tempted to hold.

I'm on wildcard and have put Lanzini in for him, for now.

Has anyone given any thought to Dan James? Looks a pretty assured starter and they do have decent fixtures.

I'm thinking of adding David Silva to Sterling and De Bruyne - I'm not sure if I could resist saying "Avengers Assemble" if I put all three of those super heroes together in the same midfield as Salah though...

I'm beginning to firm up a GW6 wildcard so losing Martial and taking the 0.1 team value gain seems reasonable.

Mount is definitely a good numbers choice though, having looked more closely if you only go off the stats he'd have to be right up there.

He has looked like his head is good in his Prem appearances.

I'd toss Iwobi into the mix, but I can ride a few Martial drops unlike Shaw and Kane 😢

Fraser perhaps, BOU have been better than his 0.2 price drop suggests.

Personally I will bench him. In other formats he may well be transferred out but in FPL I have no free transfer left this week having brought in Abraham for Kane, and I have a bench that can cope for a week.

Hopefully more info will emerge over the break as I am a little concerned that Martial is too easily breakable.

No love for Felipe Anderson? I have him in the mix along with Maddison and Mount.

For what it’s worth I have Isaac Hayden on my bench and have brought him in. He’s played 90 mins every game so far and I agree I want martial in long term the way he’s playing.

Yes, but I'm also highly considered if Moura will play in the starting eleven this weekend also.

If Moura is nailed - I would roll without any problem. However, it is obvious that he is the player Pochetino doesn't have much confidence in. And I am sure that if Eriksen is back Moura/Lamela will be benched.

Rico is on my bench and will take Martial's spot. I'm not selling.

I will keep Martial this week, as I have enough players to cover. If his injury is of a longer nature, I feel there might be an interesting alternative after the IB with Hudson-Odoi expected to be fit again.

“They’re doing okay but they won’t be involved in this game,” said Solskjaer.

“After the international break, hopefully Anthony will be ready for the Leicester game and Luke maybe another week or two after that.”

I admittedly don't have Martial in my team, but as a result I'm taking a punt and putting Greenwood in my starting XI.

I am also putting Greenwood in I think, and have decent bench cover if he does not play at all.

My gut feel is Ole will give Greenwood a shot from the start. Wish it was up the middle but it won't be.

Solskjær: "Mason [Greenwood] is not used to playing as little as he is. He is used to playing every week, now he is coming on for half an hour here and there. He won’t be expected to play five games on the bounce, he is cover and an option behind Anthony and Marcus."
