    Should be a good point deliverer that defence. Taking the risk on improving the midfield instead, but I fear it might backfire.

    Should be back in the starting eleven for the Brighton game, possibly?

    I'm on 3-4-3 too, but I've tried to pick a team so I can switch easily to 3-5-2 if needed. Really taking a punt on my forwards, but have to take the chance.

    That was my issue with him as well, but then I thought about how important he is to that team, and changed my mind. Considered Mitrović too!

    No point keeping that a secret as everyone can watch each others teams after the round. Currently have: Salah, Mané, Mahrez (despite rotation risk), Jota and Stephens (bench option).

    How does yours look?

    Exactly...it will cost to change players now !
    Nice midfield Torg,relying on the Liverpool players no doubt.

    I have Walcott (Everton looking strong so maybe lots of chances for him), De Bruyne,Milovejevic (Palace's penalty taker he he ) and Sessegnon.

    Oh and Henderson as a substitute.

    De Bruyne will be a good pick for the season, such a good player. Will be really interesting to see how Sessegnon performs in the PL - and Fulham for that matter. One to watch, for sure!

    Good pick getting Pogba from game week 1! Did you have any thoughts about whether he could be benched for this game?

    3 good teams....going to be an interesting time....points on the board for @Fire_and_Ice_Returns through Pogba but maybe dropped through De Gea.

    Considered De Gea as a set and forget goalkeeper choice, but couldn't find a way to do it. Always 1.0m or 0.5m away from making it work.

    I had a feeling with Herera injured Pogba would start as did Man United fan sites.

    Missed out on a clean sheet with De Gea... Though I must read the rules tomorrow I may bring Pickford on as sub may game extra points

    You are allowed one transfer per week,or you can let them build up...But subs only come on if a player in your team is not playing (automatic by the system) or you can swap players after all games are played for each week, which is after this weekend (Monday),you cant just bring them on .

    I definitely need to read the rules, I think De Gea got me one point so it's something. Been awake 27 hours and work tomorrow so signing off, looking forward to seeing the first round points tallies.

    Interesting. Fan sites can be a good source for information, it looks like!

    You only get points from your starting eleven, I'm afraid - you can't sub players on in the same way as the World Cup game. If one of your players in the starting eleven doesn't play, then your first sub's points will be added.

    You must play three defenders though, so if one of your defenders doesn't play (and you play a three man defence), the first defender on your bench will come on.
