Selection

Watchlist Update – Left-backs dominate among defensive options

We are taking the opportunity of the international break to do a more in-depth update of our Watchlist.

Each option is ranked according to different factors to help managers work out their appeal for Fantasy Premier League.

We started off with the goalkeepers earlier this week, and now we’ve moved onto defenders.

Marcos Alonso (£6.8m) currently tops the defensive section of our Watchlist, which is no surprise given his form and fixtures. No player in the whole of FPL has more points than the Chelsea man thus far, who has registered a goal and five assists in the first four Gameweeks. Fantasy Football Scout members who read our analysis of Alonso earlier in the week will know that certain aspects of his form have the potential to be sustainable too. That is encouraging for the Spaniard as he prepares for favourable matches against Cardiff (home) and West Ham (away) up next.

Just behind Alonso is another of the triumvirate of premium left-backs in Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy (£6.4m). The Frenchman also has five assists to his name thus far, as well as returning points in every match of 2018/19. His presence in the final third is what has underpinned his distribution in the early part of the campaign, no defender receiving more passes in that area of the pitch than Mendy so far. Where he falls just below Alonso is potential for clean sheets. While City’s fixtures are a little kinder than Chelsea’s, the champions have conceded the same number of goals from half as many big chances.

Completing the trio of left-side full-backs is Andrew Robertson (£6.1m) who goes into Gameweek 5 also in top form. The Scottish international has collected three clean sheets, two assists and six bonus, the only defender with more additional points is Alonso. Robertson’s key strength is the amount of time he is spending in opposition penalty boxes; no defender has more than his 17 touches. His only detrimental factor is that of Unfavourable Fixtures, given that he faces Tottenham (away), Chelsea (away) and Manchester City (home) in the next four Gameweeks. Those three sides have combined for 30 goals scored since the start of the campaign.

Also carrying the Unfavourable Fixtures tag is Jose Holebas (£4.8m), but that doesn’t stop him from holding onto fourth place in our Watchlist. The Watford man has a goal and four assists in as many Gameweeks and is also the designated indirect free-kick and corner taker. The fact that he sits second for total score among defenders (34) despite keeping one clean sheet shows that he can continue to impress throughout a run of games that sees him face Manchester United (home) and Arsenal (away) between now and Gameweek 7. Crucially, an advantage he has over many of the in-vogue premium options is his price, although it is steadily on the rise.

Currently averaging 7.67 points per game, Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) is also worthy of a high place on our Watchlist. Despite missing out on the opening match of the campaign, only four defenders have scored more FPL points than him so far. Trippier’s appeal in 2018/19 has improved considerably since being handed some of Christian Eriksen’s (£9.4m) set-piece duties, including direct free-kicks. His corners have placed him joint-top of the list for chances created when we filter the numbers to just Gameweeks 2, 3 and 4 – the ones in which he has played. The former Burnley man is also top of the pile for crosses into the box during that time as well. However, we have to warn potential suitors that Trippier does carry the Rotation Risk factor with a busy schedule coming up for Spurs and Mauricio Pochettino’s propensity to swap him in and out of the starting line-up with Serge Aurier (£5.9m).

One of the few promising defensive assets at Manchester United in the first four Gameweeks has been Luke Shaw (£5.1m). He has a goal, an assist and a clean sheet to his name and has been the only member of the Red Devils’ back-four to start every match. Crucially, only Alonso has had more efforts on goal than Shaw at this point, suggesting that if he can hold onto his place in the team (with Ashley Young also available) Shaw can become the best route into the Man United defence. After all, a first clean sheet in Gameweek 4 suggests some promise for upcoming home meetings with Wolves (Gameweek 6) and Newcastle (Gameweek 8). Considering the addition of goal threat to his shutout potential, he could soon provide better value than De Gea, who is currently £0.8m more expensive.

Shkodran Mustafi (£5.4m) has emerged as the primary route into Arsenal’s defence for their favourable run of fixtures. The German international delivered on his brewing goal threat in Gameweek 4 by netting in the Gunners’ 3-2 win at Cardiff. It’s a trip to Newcastle next before Everton and Watford come to the Emirates Stadium in Gameweeks 6 and 7 respectively. However, while we’ve handed a Favourable Fixtures factor to Mustafi, we can’t give him higher than a B for form as Unai Emery’s side are yet to keep a clean sheet in 2018/19.

Next up is Bournemouth’s Steve Cook (£4.6m). The centre-back has already earned one price rise this season after his 14-point haul in Gameweek 2 but has the potential to continue his form. Bournemouth have favourable fixtures from a defensive perspective with Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Southampton all set to visit the Vitality Stadium between now and Gameweek 9. Furthermore, a trip to out-of-form Burnley in Gameweek 6 also looks kind for the Cherries too. Cook also carries some goal threat a well as his Potential Bargain factor.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.1m) has fallen down the Watchlist somewhat in recent weeks but still deserves to remain in the conversation. Firstly, the Crystal Palace defender has held onto his Potential Bargain tag given that he has earned just one price rise in 2018/19. Secondly, the Eagles still have a kind run of fixtures which sees them travel to Huddersfield in Gameweek 5 and host Newcastle in Gameweek 6.

We have changed our chosen Leicester defender from Ricardo Pereira (£5.1m) to Ben Chilwell (£5.0m). While the former is currently ahead on assists (two to zero) and total score (19 to 12), we believe that Chilwell has the potential to outperform his new colleague in the coming weeks. Analysis in the Members Area shows that Chilwell has played more successful passes in the final third than Pereira and his heat map shows he is spending more time in there too. All that despite the fact that right-back Pereira has been deployed in midfield twice this season. In either case, there is potential for clean sheets for Leicester assets with a factor of Favourable Fixtures attached to them.

Completing the list is budget man Ryan Bennett (£4.0m). Fantasy managers may wish to incorporate Wolves cover into their defensive rotation over the next six Gameweeks and he looks the most appropriate. The reigning Championship winners have home matches against Burnley and Southampton coming up as well as trips to Crystal Palace and Brighton. Crucially, they have allowed the same number of big chances as Manchester City so far in 2018/19; only Liverpool and Bournemouth have conceded fewer.

    There is a lot of talk on here about the testing of VAR in PL GW 5.

    As I understand it, this will NOT have any affect on the actual matches being played in GW 5, as they are only trying it out and assessing whether the VAR center can manage the number of games etc.

    Perhaps the refs will be extra alert in these games, but there will be no contact between the VAR team and the actual referees on the pitch.

    It will be very interesting to see the effect on FPL once VAR is implemented for real in the PL, but for now it should not affect our decisions!

    “The 'as-live' match scenario will be replicated in the VAR hub but there will be no contact between the team at Stockley Park and the officials on the pitch.”

      Picking penalty takers will be a lot more important when VAR does come in.

  3. SouthCoastSaint
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Walcott, Zaha, Cairney, Bednarek, Salah (no mane), Bernardo, Tosun

    Would you wildcard with these in your squad? By no means a bad start at 200k

    1. Aftermath
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Would lose Bernardo,cairney and Walcott, wait for news on zaha.. tough one, what replacements you thinking about?

      1. SouthCoastSaint
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Hazard, mane, Ings, lacazette coming in potentially.

        Mane v Salah is tough

        1. Aftermath
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Hazard and lacazette are definite upgrades,I personally went with mane as he seems better value and the extra money could be put to better use for example a premium defender instead of a 4.5.
          Would also look at Dilva as he seems the most nailed on city mid.

    2. Psychobingo
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Yes.

    3. Warby84
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Salah my (C) GW5

  4. Super Saints
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    How's she looking? Captain Haz or Agueroooooo?

    Lossl
    Alonso Mendy Robertson Trippier Shaw
    Hazard Mane Mkhi Maddison
    Aguero
    Hamer Mitro Jimenez Stephens

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Hazard is a troll. Never captain

      1. Psychobingo
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Maybe previously, but he`s Sarris go to guy. So good and trustworthy. Still captain Aguero though.

        1. SouthCoastSaint
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          There’s nothing trustworthy about hazards points returns in FPL. Amazing footballer to watch though

    2. Ohh1454
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I'd play Jimenez defiantly and both good options for captain toss a coin

      1. Warby84
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Think utd and spurs will concede..

    3. Super Saints
      • 3 Years

      Thanks

    Below is my current team, do I need to WC?
    1 FT , 0.0 in the bank

    The ones marked with * are the players which are of high concern due to injury, form or limited game time.

    Ederson | Foster

    Trippier , Bellerin *, Robertson | Wan B , Peltier*
    Fraser , Salah , Maddison , Hazard | Helder Costa *
    Aguero , Deeney , Zaha *

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I don’t think that team needs a wildcard. Wait on Zaha news and maybe move to Mitro or Ings

      1. P-h-o-e-n-i-x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        What about Bellerin? He has been trolling me since gameweek 1!

        1. SouthCoastSaint
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          maybe Bellerin to shaw and Zaha to ...

          -4 be fine

    2. Psychobingo
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Nah, Zaha might still be ready and even if all of them are out, youre still able to produce a starting 11. With a hit you can get Alonso and Ings for Zaha and Bellerin?

      1. P-h-o-e-n-i-x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        The double swap of Ings and Alonso makes sense! Thanks

    3. Aftermath
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Would shift bellerin first, arsenal defense in shambles, wait on zaha, don't think helder Costa is a priority as he has been getting into good positions and wolves starting to look good.
      I wouldn't wildcard.

      1. P-h-o-e-n-i-x
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Yes, may be Bellerin + Peltier - > Holebas + Cook/Duffy .

        1. Aftermath
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Don't think you'd need a fifth defender at this stage, maybe bellerin to Luiz?

    4. Ohh1454
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Really like that midfield think you need mendy and Alonso wc definitely an option although a decent team

    5. mdm
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      WC for me. Get players like Mendy, Alonso, Auba/Laca, Mitro and lose Peltier, Bellerin, Costa, Fraser, Zaha and maybe Deeney

    6. 12steps
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Go for a -4

  6. wslnpt
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    I really am at a loss as to what to do here.

    Rui (Hamer)

    Mendy - Robertson - Wan Bissaka (Peltier, Bednarek)

    Salah - Mane - Brooks - B.Silva (Hudson)

    Ings - Auba - Aguero.

    2 FT, 0.4 ITB.

    A)Peltier to Bennet
    B) 3 moves for -4?
    C) WC?

    Love you guys.

    1. Warby84
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Your bench is just going to lose more value.. Personally I would refresh the squad..

      1. Warby84
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        So C

      2. wslnpt
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        WC?

    2. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Bernardo to maddison

      Peltier or bednarek to shaw

      1. wslnpt
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Good suggestion. You like Maddison?

    3. JESUS
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I don't think you are looking too bad. Three moves for -4 looks good, Maybe get Lacazette to save funs for elsewhere.

      Save the WC for Kane and gain an advantage on everyone else.

    4. 12steps
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      B

    5. Johnny 8
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Tidy it up with b imo.

  7. Ohh1454
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    I know hazard very popular but personally I never feel like he's a captain option so not worth the outlay ? Have Alonso and Pedro ( for now )

    1. 12steps
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I'm the same. But I fear/think he will be more consistent this season

      1. Ohh1454
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Ya I have same fear atm I prefer Kane although definitely not a popular opinion around here

    2. SC not pearls before swine
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I think he's a pretty great captain candidate when he's got a good fixture. He's such bonus magnet that one goal nearly guarantees you double figures.

    3. Dyballer
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I think it’s ok to wait. I have the same two Chelsea players. Forget about upcoming ‘easy fixtures’. If Chelsea aim to do well and Sarri is as good as they say, Chelsea’s attacking options should be fixture-proof. If you’re unsure (like me), I’d wait and also see how the Salah / Mane argument is working out before making the switch.

  8. Jacky boy
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Thoughts on WC team?
    Patricio hamer
    Alonso mendy shaw bennett awb
    Hazard sterling maddison fraser
    Aguero vardy wilson
    1.4 itb.

    Plan is to get salah in for sterling gw9
    Anywhere you can find a good upgrade?

    1. Aftermath
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Decent team, no obvious faults. Seeing you picked Shaw, you seem to have good faith in an even changing United backline.

      No Liverpool could hurt even considering their difficult fixtures.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Thanks. There are some doubts for me so
        Play bennett/awb and don't get shaw?
        Mitro or wilson
        Vardy or laca
        Fraser or lingard
        ...
        I don't care about liverpool cause I feel my players will do better. It's about probabilities

        1. Aftermath
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          I know it's not a popular opinion over here but I personally don't see value in a fifth playing defender this early in the season. I would play Awb and ship Shaw to a 3.9 and upgrade one of your mids.

          Maybe Fraser to Moura or maddison to David Silva, etc.

          Nitro seems the popular choice and he has pretty good stats, vardy and lacazette is a toss of a coin really, go with what seems best to you.

          1. Jacky boy
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Moura rotations risk as son is back
            Can't have dilva as already got 3.
            I had mitro since start.
            He's been great but some bad fixtures for him and wilson is there, so why not?
            Thanks for reply

    2. Johnny 8
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      That team is solid.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Thanks
        Any upgrade needed?

        1. Johnny 8
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Nope. Strong in all areas. Let's hope the international break doesn't spoil it for you injury wise as it's gig.

          1. Jacky boy
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Thank you. Injuries may make it easier to think and decide!

    Fabianski/Patricio

    Alonso/Mendy/Robbo/AWB/Tomkins*
    Salah/Mané/Walcott*/BSilva/Cairney*
    Aguero/Arnie/Kamara

    1FT. What would you guys do?

    I'm torn between a complete overhaul and rolling the transfer (assuming walcott is fit) to do a "mini-wc" prior to gw6.

    1. Warby84
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Roll the transfer it’s a good squad

  10. sodom85
    • 3 Years

    Are B.silva and Mkhitaryan are starter for next 4 gw?
    Cheers.

  11. DarkSideOfTheLoon

    Does it look ok:

    Ryan
    Mendy/ Trippier/ Alonso/ AWB
    Mane/ Hazard/ Fraser
    Laca/ Kun/ Vardy

    Button/ Cedric/ Billing/ Ward

    Thanks a lot!

      1. DarkSideOfTheLoon
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Thank You. The issue now is who to bench in the next GW - Trippier vs Liverpool or Cedric vs Brighton

        1. Aftermath
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Obviously, Cedric

          1. DarkSideOfTheLoon
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Have exactly that right now. Just had a very slight doubt.

  12. Indalo
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Injury concerns: Walcott, Zaha, Cairney, Hamer

    Rotation concerns: Bernardo and Mkhi

    Hold off on any transfers until after the international games the best option?

    1. Indalo
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      *Peltier too

      1. sodom85
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Yes .
        I think walcott and zaha can play gw5.

      Like #2 apart from Ings. I'm contemplating WC myself.

      1. PurpleMonster

        Thank you!

      2. PurpleMonster

        Which do you prefer instead of Ings?

    2. noahzark22

      Not a fan of Kane yet, especially if you aren't going to captain him every week

    I'm struggling not to WC.

    Any word on Tomkins return??
    Believe it effects PVA big time??

    1. PurpleMonster

      1. I had Tomkins but I ditched him with my WC so I saved £0.1
      2. I don't know. PVA is expensive imo but CRY has nice fixtures.

    Hi everybody:
    A) robbo+moura+vardy
    B) shaw+maddison+lacazette

    WC activated

    1. PurpleMonster
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      A is more balanced. I don't know if Lacazette is nailed.

      1. Doctor Zhivago
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Dont like moura honestly... And i think laca not 100% nailed

      A

    Hi guys need some advice if good to leave or change
    Salah to hazard and piltier to trippier (minus4)

    Foster
    Wanbas alonso mendy robertson
    Salah mane pedro
    King zaha aguero

    Patricio neves frasier peltier

    1. PurpleMonster
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      imo the defense will be too expensive with Alonso Mendy Robertson and Trippier
      another way to bring Hazard in your team? maybe WC?

      1. Musas XI
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        To expansive? I can afford if i swap salah with hazard

    2. Warby84
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Wait and see on zaha, personally hate the Salah to hazard transfer.. You could downgrade zaha to ings/deeney and lose mane for hazard

      1. Musas XI
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        I think mane will do better than salah this season as he is proving so far also 3mil cheaper!

        1. Warby84
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          At your peril

          1. Musas XI
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            Lmao yes i am bricking it hence y i need reassurance from others to do it

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      If it were me I would replace one of your LIV mids with Hazard.

      1. Musas XI
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        At the moment mane playing little better, if i take salah out i can also get trippier on top of hazard. If i take mane out just straight swap for hazard. I will get salah back after 4 hard games. This way if hazard does poor at least i got hope trippier might do something.. thats my thoughts anyway lol thanks guys

    thoughts about playing Holebas over Robertson and Gündogan this GW?Knees are shaking

    1. Musas XI
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Always play robertson! Gundogan can b swapped imo

      1. aarrgghh
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Yeah,but I need to play Hole after benching him in last two matches.other options are Fraser Wilson or Mitro

    Would you wildcard for these moves?

      See below 😐

  23. Business Cat
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Bednarek, Eriksen, Walcott, Bilva, Zaha and potentially Costa need sorting.

    I'd WC this personally.

    Getting Alonso should be a priority for you.

      Can you afford
      Salah > hazard
      Bilva > sterling

  25. RECKLESS
    • 7 Years

    Already cant wait for the captaincy article. Just cant decide between Hazard and Aguero

    1. Jules Rimet

      KUN

  26. Grassmonkeys
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Robertson and Vardy or Shaw and Laca??

    1. Feb Vertonghen
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Shaw and Vardy?

      1. Grassmonkeys
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        Have Maddison as well but yeah guess could be an option

        1. Feb Vertonghen
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          First option better. Both nailed.

    2. Goat
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      I’ve gone shaw and vardy

    3. Alexis Nonsense
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Rob so much better than Shaw

      Vardy or Laca is a coin toss atm

    4. Slam
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Vardy’s an awful pick

      1. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        So is maddison imo

        1. Grassmonkeys
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 11 months ago

          Who for Maddison then

          1. Freddiebell
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 11 months ago

            I'm guessing you have Alonso but if you don't have hazard pedro is a good pick apparently when he came on in gw4 he not only scored he played really, really well so I expect him to start in gw5

            1. Grassmonkeys
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 11 months ago

              Have hazard and Alonso

      2. Grassmonkeys
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 11 months ago

        So what's a better one then

  27. TopdeBotton

    It's beyond tedious having to log in to the site and the members' section every day.

    Surely there must be some way to allow the option of staying logged in?

    1. Slam
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 11 months ago

      Its also tedious using the RMT tool and the ticker.

      Wonder why I paid the 12.50 in the first place

  28. KP - FPL
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 11 months ago

    Is Walcott likely to be fit next game?

    1. Legomané

  29. Whattheheck!
    • 6 Years

    I have just enough money in the bank to do Bilva - > Dilva. Should I pull the trigger tonight?

  30. FootyFan

    Has anyone worked out the points for the scout picks each week or the average? I just wandered how useful it actually is. It would be interesting to compare it to the fpl game week average.
