Ramsdale (4.6) [ARS]:

Clean sheet/winning odds for next 5 games ⤵️

Rudiger (5.8) [CHE]:
- The mainstay of the Chelsea defence
- Chelsea have an amazing run of fixtures
- Played every minute in the league
- Excellent Value
- 4 clean sheets and a goal this season

Clean sheet/winning odds for next 5 games ⤵️
Cancelo (6.2) [MCY]:
- Started all the games this season & is attacking
- Plays for the best defence
- The top scoring defender in the league (44)
- Highest xP for a defender in the league (38.0)
- 10 shots including 1 big chance

Clean sheet/winning odds for next 5 games ⤵️

Salah (12.7) [LIV]:
- Essential (yes I said it)
- Best player in the league right now
- 70 points (averaging 10 points a game) - more than any other player
- Over 4 shots and 1 big chance PER GAME!

Scoring/winning and scoring 2 or more goals for next 5 games ⤵️
Raphinha (6.6) [LEE]:

- 19 shots including 2 big chances created

Scoring/winning and scoring 2 or more goals for next 5 games ⤵️
Mbeumo (5.5) [BRE]:

- Xp 31.7 is higher than his actual points (27)
- 17 Shots, including 5 big chances

Scoring/winning and scoring 2 or more goals for next 5 games ⤵️
Wildcard Team 1 - Big in Defence

This team has all the big hitters in defence from Chelsea, Liverpool & Man City in addition to the premium duo - Salah & Lukaku. All players are good value thus creating a strong 14/15 man squad, all could be played & rotated throughout the GWs.
Wildcard Team 2 - 5⭐️ Midfield

This team includes 3 premium midfield assets - Son, KDB & Salah, coupled with a strong defence comprising of TAA, Cancelo & Rudiger. This squad looks strong & formidable throughout. Are we missing a trick in not having KDB in our teams?
Wildcard Team 3 - Striker Dominant

This team has Lukaku, Vardy, and Antonio upfront, which still includes a rotateable defence and midfield that has the key wildcard picks you need. With these 3 form strikers in the team, I expect consistent points coming in every GW.
Wildcard Team 4 - Balanced

This team is arguably the most balanced of the lot with 3 premium defenders and 2 budget defenders that play week in week out. It also comprises of 4 strong midfielders and 3 attackers that can be rotated depending on fixtures.

GW1 and Strategy thread

Current thoughts with regards to my FPL team, I will cover:

- My Wildcard Strategy
- Fixtures to target (fixture ease)
- Players to consider (my shortlist)
- Current draft and formation

Data taken from
Wildcard Strategy

Since I can remember, I have always wildcarded early, I have several reasons for this, to name a few:
- Gives me a few weeks to analyse teams/players
- Have players from teams that have an easier fixture schedule to start with.....
- Allows me to start strong
- Gains momentum
- Can take short term punts where necessary
- Can jump on new signings if they start well namely (Sancho, Kane, Lukaku)

Quarter Final THREAD – Teams to target and players to consider!

•Teams likeliest to win & plan
•Players to target
•My wildcraft draft

Full player ranking
My plan is to keep it simple back the favourites to go through. The teams this round I expect to go through are:

To win%
England - 69%
Spain - 59%
Denmark - 48%
Belgium/Italy -28%/42% - will be backing Belgium in this one 👍
They have the best defence in the tournament – not conceded a goal and have arguably the easiest passage to the final. I would recommend 2 defenders (minimum) and I would use my quota of players from England – biggest favourites this weekend and they are heavily backed.

Thread – Players I would look to bring in for the next round of games if i was using a chip or considering my free transfers. I’ll cover defence&attack & support with Stats, form & fixtures! a full list of player returns can be found here
England –C/S prob 58% - Tripper – on set pieces therefore could pick up Assists/Goals, scored at the last international championships!
France – C/S 55% - one of the best teams in the competition – back 5 all viable options
Ukraine – C/S 45% -underrated team, good fixture
GK/def contin.
Belgium – C/S 40% - excellent in their first game - Meunier looks certain to start after scoring and assisting in the first game - could score big again
Other notable players – Gosens, Dumfries and Spinnazola – Huge Attacking Threats
