Scout Notes – United Defeat Brings Complications

West Brom win at Old Trafford to hand Man City the league title as Double Gameweek 34 continues to surprise and delight precious few Fantasy managers.

Following modest returns from Saturday’s matches, Sunday was meant to be so much better but instead it handed us further disappointment and set up a variety of selection concerns for the run-in.

Man United’s 1-0 loss at home to the Baggies was the dampest of squibs for Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers across the board.

Romelu Lukaku went into the match with 243,000+ new owners. Captained by 45 of the top 100 managers and 16.6% overall, a hefty 92,000+ made him the Double Gameweek’s most popular Triple Captain choice.

The Red Devils’ frontman squared up to the league’s bottom side having recorded a goal or an assist in seven of his last 10 Gameweek starts (five goals, three assists).

Just like armband rival Harry Kane less than 24 hours earlier, he blanked.

Albion keeper Ben Foster was required to make two saves – one a superb stop – to deny the Belgian, but both the forward and the team as a whole were so far removed from the heroics of last weekend at the Etihad Stadium.

Lukaku still has a second match to make amends – up against a Bournemouth defence with one clean sheet in 21 matches – but he’s managed just one goal in his last six away fixtures. While he remains a likely starter at the Vitality Stadium, coach Jose Mourinho is still set to rotate his squad in preparation for the weekend’s FA Cup semi-final with Spurs.

It’s far more doubtful whether Paul Pogba will retain his spot on the teamsheet, though, after an ineffectual display.

The driving force behind United’s second-half comeback at Man City, he was signed by 232,000+ for Double Gameweek 34 and captained by almost 86,000.

Yet despite Mourinho starting the match with the 4-3-3 formation that the Frenchman is said to thrive in, his 14.2% owners were rewarded with an abject performance as a booking and a 57-minute withdrawal produced zero points.

Pogba’s owners must now surely fear the worst when Mourinho unveils his Wednesday night teamsheet, with the manager far from complimentary on his display post-match:

“In the first-half I felt I had to bring one player with more dynamic and a player that runs more and has more touches of the ball. I had to make a decision one midfield player out to bring in Jesse Lingard and then after that I wanted more width, and Paul had a yellow card and before that he had a situation not for a second yellow but you never know in football, so I reacted to that. And Paul’s game was complicated like many others, always one more touch.”

At least the 175,000 who bought Chris Smalling got another 90 minutes out of the defender, but it’s now one clean sheet in seven Gameweeks for the United backline.

Mourinho preferred Victor Lindelof to Eric Bailly, who was rested from the squad altogether, as Smalling’s partner yesterday.

Prior to kick-off, he explained his decision to start with the summer signing:

“Normally, we are going to have more of the ball and, normally, it’s when we need somebody from the back to add extra technical quality in the middle of the back. We have three matches in a week. Bournemouth in a few days [Wednesday night] then Spurs after a few days again. In that semi-final, they are having one day extra to us to recover so I need also to think about that.”

Smalling now has 11 straight starts under his belt and seems to be rotation-proof, but with Phil Jones returning to the bench yesterday, even his pitch-time could be in doubt, leaving perhaps only David De Gea and Antonio Valencia as safe bets for midweek minutes.

Another who should feature at Bournemouth is Jesse Lingard, who was drafted in by 98,000+ for the West Brom match, only to be benched as Juan Mata returned to the starting XI on the right flank.

He did at least come on at half-time yesterday, although to little avail, while the brief renaissance of Alexis Sanchez, who had a goal and three assists from his previous two starts, ended abruptly against the Baggies.

Mourinho, as is his way, has made much of the fact that Spurs will have more time to prepare for Saturday’s semi-final, making changes yesterday and presumably plotting more of the same in midweek to combat the perceived injustice.

What effect that will have on the second act of our Double Gameweek 34 experience remains to be seen, but it will do well to be any worse than what has occurred so far.

Moore the merrier

West Brom’s caretaker manager Darren Moore has now won as many league matches (one) in two fixtures at the helm than his predecessor, Alan Pardew, achieved in 18 mostly miserable attempts.

And while the Baggies’ revival will spark little Fantasy interest –they have no Double Gameweeks to come and the remaining schedule (LIV new TOT cpl) is less than kind – it does have some knock-on effects.

Four points from Moore’s two matches suggest that the team have moved on from their whipping-boy status under Pardew, which could make Liverpool’s Gameweek 35 trip to The Hawthorns less of a Fantasy banker than it appeared a week or so ago.

Those hoping, with or without the Free Hit chip to employ, for a major points haul from Salah and two of his team-mates in next week’s reduced slate might have to rein in their expectations.

There’s even a case to be made for drafting in West Brom’s match-winner at Old Trafford, Jay Rodriguez, who’s now scored in three of the last four Gameweeks, although the Reds defence has kept clean sheets in three of their last five away days.

But the major fallout from yesterday’s shock win was Man City’s title victory.

It’s mission accomplished for Pep Guardiola’s 2017/18 vintage, with nothing left to play for but pride from here on in.

A coach who has never been afraid to chop and change now has carte blanche to rotate to his heart’s content.

Those of us on a Free Hit strategy for Gameweek 35 will still be bringing in three City players for Sunday’s title celebration match at home to Swansea City.

Which of those assets actually gets pitch-time is the key question now, with Raheem Sterling currently the top transfer pick for the weekend and Gabriel Jesus not so far behind in third place.

And then there’s the matter of the champions’ Double Gameweek 37.

What was once a fill-yer-boots exercise involving plum home fixtures against Huddersfield and Brighton could now be used an excuse for Guardiola to make sure everyone gets a go before they pack for the beach and/or the World Cup.

City were always going to win the league, but West Brom’s victory yesterday has ushered in the resultant complications a little bit sooner than we all would have liked.

    which 3 to transfer out ??

    1. Vertonghen

        Sorry. Morgan Son Willian

    2. Five Season Wonder
      • 5 Years

      Morgan, Sonny are two of the three... tough to pick a third.

      Lukaku to Auba (or Jesus depending on Aguero news) seems a no brainer
      I have Mahrez and will be punting him too. He and Leicester are just too inconsistent and can't be trusted
      Probably Morgan from the rest for the same reasons above.

    Hi, what happens if i make and confirm a transfer and then activate FH with an additional transfer? Is the first transfer part of the FH or is it part of my team after my team is returned to my original team?

    1. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      No and no

    2. Revival

      • 7 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Once you play Free Hit it basically gives you back the same team as you had at the start of GW34, so that first transfer becomes part of the Free Hit team

      1. marcelona
        • 8 Years

        tnx

  3. Five Season Wonder
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    ...........Llorente, Kane
    Lucas....................... Lamela
    ..........Wanyama, Dier
    Rose, D.Sanchez, Toby, Aurier
    ....................Lloris

    1. Ghost Ship
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      don't think Lamela starts two in a week. Son time.

      Might even have to rest Kane for Llorente. Golden boot and all that but its stupid to play him three times in a week when he is just back from injury.

      1. Five Season Wonder
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Toss up between Lamela & Son. whoever starts this one will probably sit out the FA Cup semi.

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years

      Spurs' team B?

    3. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Not a Spurs fan but they really need to replace Lloris. He's cost them so many goals.

      Lamela is awful too.

      1. Ghost Ship
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Harsh on Lloris. The way they play there a few better (Ederson would be one). Lamela is Ok for cup and back up.

        1. Ghost Ship
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 10 months ago

          also worth saying Lamela was out for, what, a whole season? Takes months and months to come back from that.

      2. Fantastisk
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Lamela is bang average but Lloris is pretty decent imo.

    4. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Rose not fit.

      1. Five Season Wonder
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        He should be okay for tomorrow

    5. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      I'd expect vertonghen to start

  4. #FPLBhuna

    • 3 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    Thoughts on this draft for 35 (WC) and 37 (BB) chaps (no fh or tc left) - WC active.

    Dubrava - Lloris
    Masuaku - Robertson - Chambers - Smalling - Chilwell
    Arnie - Salah - Sterling - Sane - Kenedy
    Auba - Jesus - Perez

    12 for bgw 35 (1 sub)
    14 for dgw 37

    Obligatory RMFHT4GW35. Any comments gratefully received.

    Pickford

    Kompany – Robertson – Mustafi

    Sterling – Salah – Zaha – Shaqiri

    Jesus – Firmino – Aubameyang

    Bench: Karnezis; Kenedy; Lowton; Bauer

    1. Ghost Ship
      • 9 Years

      My only comment is I was stupid to blow my chips months ago and have learnt my lesson for next season. Enjoy the points.

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      I don't like Kompany. Why not: Ederson + Coleman/Baines?

      1. Five Season Wonder
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Bad Kompany

  8. barracuda
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    Better combo till the end:

    A- Auba, Jesus
    B- Auba, Kane
    C- Kane, Jesus

    1. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Right now it's B.

      If Aguero is out long term I'd say C is a no brainer.

      1. Five Season Wonder
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        this

      2. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Auba may be surrounded by a weaker team plus Laca in the middle/potentially on penos, makes me think like I should go with Jesus (if Kun out).

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      B

  9. Five Season Wonder
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    Is 50 points a bridge too far to catch up my ML leader?
    (we both have same strategy & chips left).

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      No. I caught up 65 in two weeks in the same situation.

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      If you both have same squads, then it's not possible. 🙂

    3. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      No it's relatively small imo. All it takes is one good gameweek for you to be right there.

      He might try and cancel you out by signing players you have though which makes it difficult.

      1. Five Season Wonder
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        I'm a fairly decent FPL manager, and so is he. He's been floating about the 10K mark majority of the season.

    4. Numb
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Realistically yes

    5. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Doable

  10. Zebrahimović
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    Once Free Hit is activated you can keep tweaking the line up until deadline right?

    1. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      I believe so.

    2. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Right

      1. arndff_
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        It's like a WC. You know the differences. 🙂

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Really need a rules tab.
      Yes.

      1. Numb
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        There's one on FPL

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 10 months ago

          But not on the regular page, its too hard to find, hence all the very basic questions.

          1. Numb
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 10 months ago

            If you can't find the rules under "Help" then you really shouldn't be playing FPL. Or using the internet.

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 10 months ago

              I think it should go:
              Status-Rules-My Team-Points and so forth. Make it so easy for everyone who is new to FPL or finds things like difficult to navigate, regardless of whether you think they should be allowed to use the internet.
              Horse on a horse.

    My 4 sgw players got me 41 points.

    1. Ghost Ship

      think he is out for a couple of weeks.

    "Poch just told me he will rotate players for tomorrow night's game. Lucas Moura is pushing for a start and Llorente is back now in contention after his problem the other day. Poch didn't want to go into it as it was a private matter. Toby Alderweireld will be in the squad he said"

    1. Numb
      • 5 Years

      Son back in, he means.

    2. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Seems like being involved and being in the squad is how he splits those guys. I think Llorente plays tomorrow.

      1. Ghost Ship
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        It would be the logical thing.

    3. Leo10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      I only own Kane and Eriksen. I think Kane will play as he's so desperate for the golden boot but Eriksen could be in real danger.

      1. barracuda
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Not a biggie, he has done his bit 🙂

    4. barracuda
      • 2 Years

      Don't forget Alli. He needs a rest too.

    5. Super Saints
      • 3 Years

      I think alli and eriksen will be rested and i have both

  14. Super Saints
    • 3 Years

    How's she looking fh35?!

    Ederson
    Bellerin Colemam Pva
    Mane Sterling Arnie Zaha
    Auba Jesus Firmino
    Hennessey Long Kiko Carroll

    1. arndff_
      • 8 Years

      Take out Bellerin for sure.

      1. Super Saints
        • 3 Years

        He is fit again isn't he?

  15. #Swish41
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    Terrible WC33 and BB34 looking average. How about the FH35 (25pts off ML leader, who has no FH):

    Cech
    Otamendi Long Tarkowski
    Mane Salah Sterling Zaha (Mili)
    Firmino Jesus Aubameyang

    Hoping for Pool team news as they KO at 12:30.

    Anything missing?

    Perhaps Ota > TAA/Robertson and Mane > Sane/KDB, depending on lineups...

    Cheers all

        what keeper would you go for then, I would be doubling up on some team, Pope?

          Pickford is also an option if u dont have eve def

              Then pope no choice
              Everton def is not reliable

                Pope and 5.7 Def? Monreal or invest money elsewhere and play : VVD - PVA - Tarkowski/Long

      I make it he has played just over 3 hours of football in 5 weeks. Is that justifying a rest? Doubt he is even match sharp yet...

      1. Ghost Ship
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        Coming back from an injury, it will be madness to play him three games in 10 days, total madness. Only reason would be Poch worried Kane will get the hump if he is benched, but the guy has to be a pro and see sense or he is putting himself (and his World Cup) at risk. He was clearly shattered last game.

    Have changed my FH team slightly. Milivojevic in as fifth defender as I think a good sub might come in handy. To be able to afford that I have changed from Hennessey + Baines to Pickford + Tomkins. Not sure that is a downgrade after some consideration. Comments?

    Pickford 3.9
    Kompany Monreal Tomkins Long 3.9
    Salah Mane Sterling Zaha Mili
    Firmino Aubameyang Jesus

      Kompany too much a rotation risk imo

  26. Steve Stiffler

    How sure is everyone that Firmino will be starting this weekend, would be sickening if he wasnt... really want KDB in this week

    1. Steve Stiffler
      • 3 Years

      sure*

      Can't see it with champs league footy all but confirmed

      1. Steve Stiffler
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 10 months ago

        yeah me neither, keeping him out of my side and playing 2 up top

  27. barracuda
    • 2 Years

    Do we think Kane drops once this week?

  28. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 10 months ago

    What do we make of D.Silva as an option now that City have the title in the bag?

    I'd love to get him in (over Sterling) but think he might be afforded more time to spend with his family which will see him miss a couple games.

    1. Ghost Ship
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 10 months ago

      Pep will tell him to go back to Spain for a month to be with his family.

    Play PVA or Kiko this week?
