Fantasy Football Chat: Gameweek 1 Saturday Live

A last minute crash to the FL site only caused 22 swear words but we won't worry as, Premier League Fantasy Football is back. Whoooo hoooo.

Your fantasy football squads are complete and we start our first live chat of the 2016/17 season with the Champions.

Hull City v Leicester City

Champions Leicester may have hoped for a home tie to start the defence of their Premier League title (how great does that sound) but while this didn't happen they haven't ended up with too bad a replacement.

Hull City are down to the bones in players with a number of 1st team regulars out.  Promotion winning manager Steve Bruce has gone and Mike Phelan will be taking charge.  The owners also  want to sell the club and combining all these factors we have a home side with every excuse they need to lose.

The Foxes meanwhile have lost one of the star trio from 2015/16 in N'golo Kante but pleasingly but perhaps a little surprisingly they have held onto Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

The game looks plumb for Vardy and Mahrez to profit but if you did select them in your sides you will have paid a pretty penny.  Those who took an opening day gamble on Musa must be licking their lips.

Elsewhere the Saturday lineup is as follows

Burnley v Swansea City

Crystal Palace v West Bromwich Albion

Everton v Tottenham Hotspur

Middlesbrough v Stoke City

Southampton v Watford

Manchester City v Sunderland

In FPL nearly all of us will have the gameweek 1 armband on Kun but it will be interesting to see who play in support of him attack.

Elsewhere Burnleys Andre Gray will be of big interest to many fantasy fans.
