Note on the draft that it’s still obviously subject to change
🧠 What I think we learned on Saturday… 🧠 Grealish & Mahrez are pretty dodgy / very risky picks 🧠 City look under-cooked fitness wise but will clearly come good. 🧠 Robbo over Diaz could be a call for that 3rd Liverpool slot. 🧠 Diaz is a great player (IMO) but his energy, skills and final ball / shot seems not to be converting to FPL points say like a Kulu or Saka’s does at the same price point. 🧠 TAA & Salah are essential (we knew that already) 🧠 Nunez might well start from the bench in a good few games yet (especially those that are prime Firmino territory in Klopp’s mind). Looks to be a very exciting player with good FPL output potential. 🧠 Cancelo offered surprisingly little going forwards in the Community Shield (Salah & Trent had him pinned back) 🧠 Haaland will come good. Clearly a class player. Sticking 100% to Kane over Haaland for GW1 though. Still think Kane will play 80+ more mins than Haaland across GW1-GW6. 🧠 Bernardo was sooooo deep he’s not a FPL option (we knew that already i guess) 🧠 KDB started the game playing very high and as the closest player to Haaland. Faded out. 🧠 Alvarez looked good and will compete with Mahrez on the right hand side. 🧠 Foden looked better than both Grealish and Mahrez when he came on.
Saka may have now emerged as the optimal £8m midfield option
Jesus is a no-brainer at £8m but we already knew that
Saka & Martinelli appear to be sharing pens depending on who wins them
Spurs got Jose’d when Moutinho parked his bus
Doherty and Perisic were playing soooooo high up the pitch
Son, Kane and Kulu remain v good FPL picks.
Bruno G played v deep again for Newcastle in their pre-season match v Atalanta. Still got forward though and made chances.
