Plenty of managers are bringing in Roberto Firmino for the injured Marcus Rashford. It’s an easy transfer to make, but it’s not necessarily the right one. You’re likely to get what you pay for with Sadio Mane and Mo Salah and you probably won’t want to hold Firmino long-term.
Why I didn't entertain Firmino:
– Has blanked in 61% of games this season
– 2 double figure hauls all season
– Is literally the creator for Salah/Mané
TAA is a better (C) option than Bobby…

FPL Pro is seriously considering giving a Liverpool defender the armband, with Trent Alexander-Arnold in the hot seat. He has the best form of any player in the game, with six consecutive clean sheets, plus five attacking returns in his last six.

Worth TC consideration?

West Ham players have taken a back seat in our thoughts, with the quality of the opposition being a huge contributing factor to this. Andrew Gower considers the best players this season and their recent form. Mark Noble and Robert Snodgrass are both in the conversation from midfield.

Snodgrass 4.8 (5.3)

Fornals 4 (3.8)
