Watchlist

The Watchlist – Christian Benteke

As a result of Alex McLeish’s horrendously negative tactics last season, very few Villa players were taken seriously by Fantasy managers when crafting initial lineups this time round. Prices were subsequently downgraded and with the arrival of a more attack minded manager in Paul Lambert, plus the emergence of several young (and cheap) players, the Villains appeared to offer a rich seam of differential talent waiting to be mined. It’s taken a while for Lambert’s young lions to establish themselves this season, however, and as it stands that talent remains largely untapped; the acrobatic Brad Guzan in goal and the muscular Christian Benteke up front are the only players to accumulate more than a 3% FPL ownership to this point.

Four goals at Carrow Road in the Capital One cup and another three at Anfield has given us plenty of reason to take another look, and summer signing Benteke has been central to Villa’s resurgent run of form. In many ways, the Belgian is a symbol of the changes taking place at Villa Park – young, energetic and strong, the comparison with forlorn and fallen team-mate Darren Bent is striking. Benteke’s performance at Anfield displayed many of the qualities missing in the England international; he won aerial duels all over the pitch, scored a powerful goal from distance, set up another with a cheeky bit of skill and capped it off by barging his way into the box to execute a cool finish. If he was English, the media would have eaten it up.

We’ve already covered Benteke once this season, back in November he made significant strides: enough to promote him in our thoughts. He duly delivered three goals an assist and six bonus points since that article but, with a forthcoming schedule that screams further returns, Benteke warrants renewed attention.

Three home games in the next four against Tottenham, Wigan and Southampton should provide plenty of chances for Benteke to boost his burgeoning reputation further. While Villa’s form could now be fragile having just taken a pounding at Chelsea, Lambert is backing his side to show their spirit and bounce back in the Boxing Day meeting with Spurs. Considering that he has scored or assisted eight of Villa’s 13 league goals so far this term, Benteke will surely be the key figure on show against Andre Villas-Boas’ side and, with a price tag of 6.7 in the FPL and just 7.5 in the Sky Sports game, there are few obstacles to investment.

An ownership of just over 3%, with the ability to free up funds for heavy midfield acquisitions, promotes the appeal and could mean that Poirot isn’t the only Belgian that comforts us over Christmas; it’s not certain that Benteke will be murdering defences but he’s surely a prime suspect.

              At the moment I have A (c), B (vc). But I think I might switch them around before the deadline tomorrow.

                So I thought I was out of the cup by a point after baps. But then I log in today and see I have another opponent in GW 19, a nice little Christmas present from the fpl gods, must have been his 4 point hit that I scraped through on 😀 Result.

                Anyway, Merry Christmas all!

                      Is it possible to see how you did week by week for previous seasons? And also in last years cup?

                      I’m sure it isn’t but thought I’d ask anyway…

                            Merry Chrimbo to you all!!

                            Seeing as I want to do Yaya to Bale with my free, is it worth taking a hit to get rid of Rafael?

                            If so, for who? I’m tempted by the OOP Luiz, or Natasic. Or just for a cheapie and spend the monies elsewhere?

                            Ta very much!

                                Nastasic i a good choice, but i think rafael will play 90% of the games when he is back. His only setback was that he was short, but with Vidic back he'll be nailed on.

                                    But very true, I'm sure he'll play a lot, but when?

                                    Hopefully he's back tomorrow but I doubt it...

                                                  I rate Zabaleta? Richards out long term, and I can't see Maicon getting too much game time, plus he can play left back.

                                                          Honestly think Walcott offers a greater threat in long term

Could be a fail but tempted to go Michu even with RVP at home......

                                                                                                                          I felt I'd probably gotten his best in FPL terms so I was quite happy to sell. Basically, you're reliant on him getting assists because Utd's defence is pants this season.
