Fantasy Football Tips: Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah, James Madison

The most popular transfer going into Gameweek 2 is for the manager to bring out Harry Kane and Erling Haaland for Manchester City’s game against Bournemouth.

Some may have planned this move from the beginning. He hopes Tottenham will sign Kane against Southampton in the first round and captain Haaland at home against the newly promoted club.

That solid strategy didn’t pay off in Game Week 1, but it was worth a try. If you’re well versed, partly because you made the change before the price change, Harland he’s £100,000 up and Kane he’s £100,000 down. .

If you miss that opportunity, I don’t think it’s worth making two transfers and hitting four just to get Haaland. Especially when you have another Manchester City attacking player in your squad, or Mohammed He Salah. , who will happily stick the captain’s armband at Liverpool’s home game against Crystal Palace.

Harry Kane’s absence from Spurs’ scoresheet against Chelsea also makes no sense – and he’s more likely to play 90 minutes than Haaland.Bournemouth against Aston Villa last weekend. ‘s very impressive start to the season and the determination that Scott Parker’s players are up and counting, we don’t take it for granted.

When you have both Haaland and Salah on your team, the captaincy decision is a tough one.

We discussed this on this week’s Fantasy 606 podcast, and while Statman Dave suggests he might be loyal to Thaler, I go to Harland. The Egyptian certainly has a track record to back up that decision, but I’m dazzled by the new kid on the block and City intend to overwhelm Bournemouth on Saturday.

If you’re happy with how your team is set up in game week 1 and you can send money this week, I think it’s a great play to have the flexibility to do 2 free transfers before game week 3. More information at your fingertips.

I really like the idea of ​​having Tottenham’s wingbacks in the team – Chris Sutton went with a Ryan Sessegnon inspired pick earlier in the season – but I don’t know who will be the regular starter for them I’d like to get a better idea of ​​what the role will be once everyone is at full speed. Ivan Perisic is the most attractive choice at his £5.5million, but it has also been suggested that Dejan Kulusevski could do the job on the right wing, making him his £8million midfielder in the game.

As long as he’s in the starting line-up, Krusevski’s owners won’t mind. If Antonio Conte continues to play like he did against Southampton, it will be hard to leave him out.

Statman Dave highlighted James Maddison as the £8m midfielder nomination based on his Gameweek 1 performance on the Fantasy 606 podcast. An assist despite creating five chances for a teammate. The only thing that puts me off is a trip to Arsenal this weekend and a visit to Chelsea in week 4, Leicester’s fixture on either side of the home game against Southampton.

Darwin Nunez also gave us a lot to think about during his electrifying 39 minutes against Liverpool at Fulham. Should we switch to a three-man front line? Does this mean we take a lot of money out of defense and midfield?

For my team, that means downgrading Liverpool’s Andy Robertson to a £4million defender. I already own Nottingham Forest’s Neco Williams, so probably Everton’s Nathan Patterson. trippy. That means his two of Patterson, Williams, Pedro He Neto, Leon Bailey and Andrea Pereira, will have to start every week. Liverpool’s assets significantly surpass Robertson.

I think we need more evidence to convince.

Likewise, you could switch straight to Gabriel Jesus, but you might end up regretting it given Arsenal’s promising early season fixtures.
