Well with the hyper building up, players all over the world pretty sure have been ready for the moment since the FPL took a break to fit in the 2022 World Cup.

Those who adore the fantastical realm of the sport would have prepared for this moment and got themselves ready for perhaps a less competitive iteration of fantasy football.
We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from West Ham United v Bournemouth in our Scout Notes summary. Dominic Solanke (£5.8m) hobbled off in Bournemouth’s defeat to West Ham on Monday, lasting only 45 minutes of the Cherries’ 2-0 loss after picking up what appeared to be an ankle injury. To add to the visitor’s woes, they also lost first-choice‘ keeper Neto (£4.5m) at the break, having hurt himself while clearing the ball in the first half. He was replaced by Mark Travers (£4.3m), who started the season as number one but hasn’t played since the 9-0 Liverpool defeat.
Gameweek 12 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) will be a ‘blank’ for both Arsenal and Manchester City, the Premier League confirmed this morning.

A new date has not been announced for the postponed game in north London.
