Scout Notes

The Stock Check – Gameweek 19 – Friday

The set-piece prowess of Robert Snodgrass comes to the fore but fails to earn Hull City victory as Ross Barkley stoops to head a first goal since Gameweek 10. Here’s the Stock Check following Friday’s fixture.

On the Rise

Robert Snodgrass
Snodgrass produced two stunning free-kicks, one striking the woodwork, the other finding the top corner of Everton’s net.

His sixth goal of the season, a fourth from a dead-ball scenario, elevated him once more in our thinking as a low-to-mid price midfield asset.

The Scot’s record is therefore maintained: he has either scored or assisted 50% of Hull City’s goals this season.

That ensures that Snodgrass must remain on our radar as a fourth midfielder to allow heavy investment up front, or a fifth option in a 3-5-2.

However, Hull City’s fixtures continue to provide a major barrier.

While they next face a trip to West Brom and a vital home clash with Bournemouth, following that, the Tigers are cursed with an evil run that will likely limit Snodgrass’ output.

Mike Phelan’s side must endure visits to Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal, with a home fixture with Liverpool also scheduled for the following four Gameweeks.

Leighton Baines
A beautifully flighted cross served up Ross Barkley’s equaliser and saw Baines record just a third assist of the season.

It represented the left-back’s third attacking return in six Gameweeks and came packaged with the maximum bonus points, taking him to eight over that spell.

Ronald Koeman’s decision to revert from a three-man backline, shifting Baines from wing-back to a traditional full-back role was disappointing. But that tactical tweak may be revisited and, with Everton’s schedule improving markedly, it seems wise to monitor Baines’ underlying numbers in the coming weeks.

The jury is still out on the preferred Toffees full-back option, with Seamus Coleman’s energy arguably offering a greater level of goal threat. However, Baines left-foot supply and spot-kick duties are factors in his favour, with current form suggesting that he is the go-to option.

Ross Barkley
Dare we consider Barkley?

A source of much frustration for his manager and Fantasy managers alike, he has the talent to deliver but has once again disappointed in this campaign.

Perhaps the goal on Humberside, just his third of the season, will provide the catalyst for greater contributions, though we’re unlikely to jump the gun.

Everton’s fixtures promote further attacking returns, but Barkley has never provided that consistent source we crave and expect from a player with such ability.

In Decline

Romelu Lukaku
The Belgian upped his goal threat, mustering four attempts on the night, one of which struck an upright.
But ultimately, Lukaku failed to follow up on his superb Gameweek 18 goal at Leicester City and allowed another plum fixture to drift by without profit.

In truth, this is typical of Lukaku as a Fantasy asset.

He can rarely be relied upon to deliver according to fixture; his points arrive in bouts, with his form remaining devilishly difficult to predict.

Everton are scoring goals, and the schedule remains favourable, but this is not necessarily a signpost for sustained returns from Lukaku.

Mason Holgate
Part of a three-man backline in the 2-0 win at Leicester City, the 4.0 valued defender claimed more than 35,000 new owners ahead of the trip to the KCOM Stadium, also earning a place on our Scout Picks bench.

But Koeman’s decision to depart from a winning formation and revert back to a 4-2-3-1 relegated Holgate to the bench, rendering his future as a Fantasy asset uncertain once more.

Koeman hinted that he will change personnel again for the visit of Southampton to Goodison Park on Monday.; it remains to be seen if that finds Holgate recalled and revived.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

        Actually didn't spot you have Evans. So maybe c. I'd want to keep Erikson though if I could. Chelsea def looks a good buy tho.

                Very tough games next GW for this lot.

                Considering moving for Aguero.. A great fixture at least but does it come at too great a cost?

                Heaton (mci),
                Alonso(tot), Walker (CHE).
                Eriksen(CHE), Lallana(sun), Sanchez(bou), Siggy(cry).
                Ibra(whu), Negredo(LEI), Costa(tot),
                Pickford(out), Holebas(sto), Whelan (WAT), Amat(cry).

                1ft, 0.7m in bank.

                1. Cabaye (or Phillips)- Siggy + Aguero - Costa (-4).
                2. Wally- Eriksen + Aguero- Ibra (-4)
                3. Cabaye/Phillips- Siggy.
                4. Other..?

                    Is it too risky to do this now before games have played:

                    Kane + Mane > Aguero + Lallana

                    to avoid the price rise in Lallana ? only way I can afford it

                        No article yet about Gabriel Jesus. Are we going to be getting one?

                        He's very likely to be the highest profile addition to FPL in January and the one who could have the biggest impact.

                          The transfer window isn't even open. It's the busiest article period of the year.

                              Aguero possibly....and that's why we need some info.

                              We on here might love Aguero but I'm not sure Pep will be quite so enamoured with him right now. Seven weeks sat on the banch in the first half of the season may well not have gone down very well with him. I'm not saying he'll drop him completely but he may well be shining a light for his new shiny toy.

                                  18 days, 5 hours ago

                                  Agree, there's something wrong with Kun & Pep atm, look at the returns, where they happen, 12.8 looks a bit much right now.

                              It's in the pipeline!

                              Can't see him getting to many PL starts initially, but certainly a factor to be considered if you're looking at bringing Aguero in given Sergio's price tag.

                                I can tbh. There seems little doubt that he's destined for big things. I doubt he's signed to be consigned to the reserves or a bit part player.

                                  Football wise he's probably ready, but settling into a different country as a young person might take a bit more time.

                                  Definitely destined for big things though!

                                    Doesn't strike me as being somebody who's gonna want to just go to training every day whilst he settles in.

                                Yep.

                                No doubting Aguero's pedigree as a goalscorer but off the ball he's a bit meh. Compare him to Sanchez or Suarez who never stop hunting the ball down with sheer energy. They're more like a Pep player than Aguero.

                              A) Alli
                              B) Eriksen

                                  A, imo both will get similar points and obviously Alli is cheaper.

                                Mourinho just confirmed that Depay wants to leave in January. It will be interesting to see which clubs who might interested in him and Schneiderlin.

                                    Everton need these types.

                                      Schneiderlin is a good replacement for Barry!

                                          I think both could do well there.

                                      If Depay looks slim, fit and ready to go I might get him. Potential to score goals.

                                        ...well, he'd certainly be a differential!

                                        Not with a very long bargepole for me 🙂

                                        Yeah, he might do well with more minutes in his legs. Too bad it took him two years to understand that football is more important than fashion and shiny cars.

                                      McAuley to Brunt if you don't want to change anything in particular.

                                          ... or Alli ? Yes, that was one idea I had looked at, although Payet has a great run of fixtures

                                          Thanks. Yes, will certainly be waiting - like you say, something will probablystand out as being obvious

                                      Do you need both Costa and Hazard in your team or is one enough especially if you have a Chelsea defender?

                                          I think one is enough especially given the tough fixtures coming up.

                                          People have been arguing this both ways. Pick the ones you think will score the most points, if that includes both Haz and Costa then so be it.

                                            Depends on what you need funds for if you plan on selling hazard or costa and since most likely it'd for aguero there are better mid priced midfielders than strikers so sell hazard... My logic....

                                            I personally think Costa is essential, and don't think Hazard is good value in comparison
