FM Premier League – Matchweek 14




Welcome back to the FM Premier League! After another disappointing loss to Southampton last time out, my Fulham side had an even tougher task, beating FMJourneyman’s Chelsea!

Read Matchweek 13!


This week, we made another tactical change in an effort to make something happen. Due to the quality of our opposition, we went with a direct counter-attacking style of play. The 4-3-3 formation made a return with a few role changes, namely Zambo Anguissa switching to an Anchor in the midfield.

There was also 4 lineup changes to the side. In defence, Cyrus Christie and Havard Nordtveit dropped out, with Alfie Mawson and Maxime Le Marchand coming in. In attack, Luciano Vietto and Andre Schurrle came in on either wing, with Ryan Babel and Lazar Markovic dropping out.

Chelsea vs Fulham

The first half for Fulham was very encouraging. We managed to keep Chelsea out, and created a few decent chances at the other end. It was 0-0 at the break.

Chelsea took control in the 2nd half, however. After Andre Schurrle gifted Chelsea a penalty, Eden Hazard tucked away and we were 1-0 down. We created a few more chances after that, but after Calum Chambers and Sergio Rico had a lapse in communication, Eden Hazard scored his and Chelsea’s 2nd, sealing the game for them

Match Reaction

This week’s performance was a lot better than last week’s, but we really are crying out for a win. We were never really expected to win this, but we still made it all too easy for Chelsea. It seems like, no matter what I try, our defence is simply too weak to keep any attack out. As we’ve seen in real life, this Fulham team is just ill-prepared for the Premier League and we seem destined to go down at the moment.

Next Opponent: Leicester City (FMLobster)

Our next opponent is a slightly more winnable game. We will face Leicester City, managed by FMLobser. Leicester find themselves down at the bottom of the table along with us, which makes this a crucial game in our survival attempt. At some point, something I try has to work, and hopefully it will click next week!

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
