4.5 defenders

Post by Mav3rick »

Lots of potential in the 4.5 defender bracket, does anyone think Botman wouldn't start for Newcastle from GW1?

Quite like the idea of rotating Andreas and Botman for a enabling 11th man for the first 5/6 GWs, with the option to jump on any of the 4.5s who look good (Dalot, etc) if their teams start well.

They've just paid a load of cash for their No1 target, so I would think he would start

White is nailed on every week, could end up at RB quite frequently now, and Arsenal should be a bit more secure in defence this season. If you need an enabler, he's a good choice.

Is he nailed on? Tomiyasu doesn't sound like he's too injured and is definitely the first choice RB. If Saliba plays well with Gabriel in the meantime, I don't think White automatically displaces him.

We were discussing this recently that currently the RCB spot is white to lose but with Saliba starting it there once he plays well Arteta wouldn't want to mess with it

I’m thinking Ait-Nouri as he had a good end to the season and hopefully this season will top his 5 G/A contributions.

Toti at 4.0m might not be bad for that third bench spot. Undecided between him and N. Williams who’ll get more minutes (thought I fancy Wolves for more clean sheets than Forest).

Sorry for the multiple posts - it's been doing that a lot for me lately :oops:

I think White's versatility means he will almost always play. Tomiyasu's fitness is questionable and Gabriel may be the one displaced by Saliba as well. Safe bet for me.

Gabriel is the only sure started because he is left footed and his only competition is Mari, hence why white and Saliba competing for RCB

I mostly agree, but Saliba has spent most of his career so far as LCB so I don't think it's that clear cut. Mari should be gone by the end of deadline day, though.

Well it kinda clear cut since that how arteta like his CB playing with a Left footer on left and Right footer on the right so once Gabriel is fit i think he starts unless he needs rest, and saying Saliba played on LCB most of his career isn't quite throw last season if i not mistake he played RCB for Marsille, when he was at bourdex he played LCB when dey were in a back 3 but went to RCB when dey switch to a back 2 formation

Has anyone seen enough of the Chelsea battering?

I'm seeing different reports of who played RB. White or Saliba?

That is what I was reading before (ie Saliba is nailed) but then saw them swapped on the prematch thing... (I only had YouTube highlights)

white played RB
it should also be noted against Olando Saliba was brought on as a second half sub and did play RB until bellerin came on then he went to RCB

also we have Cedric who is our actual back up RB and he played against Everton and came on for white against Chelsea

i think who starts the emirates cup Saturday would probably start GW1

Yes to that, although there is a private Friendly Vs Brentford in the midweek before the Prem starts.

Just a forewarning on Ait-Nouri, Wolves have been playing 4-2-3-1 in pre-season, so don’t expect much in g/a contributions.

I think there is some really good value in the cheap defenders this year, particularly as I am only really looking at the first six game weeks before using one of the three wildcards we have this year - I intend starting with -

White, Art-Nouri, Dunk, Dier and TAA as my only premium defender.

I would probably prefer Kiliman and Lamptey over Art-Nouri and Dunk, but think the former pair are the more secure GW1 starters

I think White is probably the safest bet out of White/Saliba/Tomiyasu for the first 6 weeks or so but will be keeping an eye on the line-up v Sevilla
