Here’s a brief FPL pre-season 22 July games article where we take a quick look at the relevant points from the friendlies on Sunday which involved Everton, Huddersfield, Liverpool, Man Utd and Wolves
FPL pre-season 22 July games – Everton, Huddersfield, Liverpool, Man Utd and Wolves
Porto 1 Everton 0
Another game with nothing in it of interest from an attacking point of view and nothing that helps us figure which £4.5m CB of Jagielka, Williams or Holgate will start alongside Keane
Darmstatd 1 Huddersfield 1
Having played on the Saturday the teams have been mixed up so nothing again lineup wise. £6.0m fwd Mounie scored and was lively which is a good sign.
Dortmund 3 Liverpool 1
The attacking lineup resembles nothing like the GW1 side so ignore that. The hunt for the £5.0m defender saw £5.0m CB Matip start beside Van Dijk and Robertson with £5.0m Clyne taking the RB spot. TAA is still on leave.
San Jose 0 Man Utd 0
An injury to Valencia after 8 minutes was the unfortunate news from this game although maybe not from an FPL perspective given his price. The extent is unknown but it means £5.0m Darmian if he’s still a Man Utd player or Fosu Mensah will have to play RB if it is serious. The defence continues to look like £6.0m Smalling, £5.5m Bailly and £5.0m Shaw plus an RB.
In attack only Martial Herrera and Sanchez started who look like GW1 contenders. Martial was the CF but faded after a reasonable start. Sanchez was the star with his customary all action performance.
Bochum 0 Wolves 0 & Betis 0 Wolves 0
Two 45 minute games with 2 mixed teams. The good news was that £4.5m GK Patricio started and £5.5m fwd Jimenez also started after their World Cup returns.
