Scout Notes

Rose impresses for England as Coleman adds to Everton’s injury woes

The week of international football concluded in the early hours of this morning, with a cluster of matches played in The Americas.

A handful of fixtures were also played hours earlier in Europe and Asia, with all of the players involved now heading back to their respective clubs ahead of the Gameweek 5 matches this weekend.

Our penultimate Scout Notes special from the international break looks at some of the headline stories from yesterday’s action, with further analysis on the remaining matches to follow in our concluding instalment later.

England 1-0 Switzerland

  • Kyle Walker (£6.5m) – 90 minutes
  • John Stones (£5.5m) – 29 minutes
  • Danny Rose (£5.9m) – 79 minutes
  • Ben Chilwell (£5.0m) – 11 minutes
  • Kieran Trippier (£6.0m) – 12 minutes
  • Harry Maguire (£5.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (£5.0m) – 78 minutes
  • James Tarkowski (£5.0m) – 61 minutes
  • Jordan Henderson (£5.3m) – 22 minutes
  • Eric Dier (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Jesse Lingard (£6.8m) – 29 minutes
  • Fabian Delph (£5.3m) – 68 minutes
  • Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.3m) – 61 minutes
  • Danny Welbeck (£6.5m) – 61 minutes
  • Harry Kane (£12.5m) – 29 minutes
  • Marcus Rashford (£6.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Stephan Lichtsteiner (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Fabian Schar (£4.8m) – 90 minutes
  • Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.1m) – 80 minutes
  • Granit Xhaka (£5.3m) – 90 minutes

Gareth Southgate gave his reassuring prognoses on Luke Shaw and Dele Alli‘s injuries ahead of the 1-0 win over Switzerland, though reports in the press continue to suggest that the Manchester United left-back will miss Manchester United’s Saturday evening encounter with Watford.

Southgate said:

All being well, he [Shaw] has a mandatory six- or seven-day period [of not playing following the concussion].

But he should be back in [training] as soon as that is done.

[Alli] has had a minor strain, but I think he should be fine for his club this weekend

The rest of England’s squad appeared to come out of the friendly against the Swiss relatively unscathed, while FPL owners of Harry Kane, John Stones (who received a small cut to the head before carrying on playing), Ben Chilwell, Kieran Trippier and Jesse Lingard would have been further heartened to see their assets reduced to cameos off the bench – leaving them fresh for this weekend’s upcoming matches.

Danny Rose delivered a man-of-the-match performance at left wing-back, though will now return to Spurs later than his positional rival, Ben Davies (£5.8m).

No player created more chances (three) or fired over more crosses (eight) than Rose, who also had two attempts on goal from inside the opposition area. No England player registered more penalty box touches, either.

Of course, Rose was deployed as an advanced wing-back/left midfielder at Leicester last night – and Mauricio Pochettino may be loath to experiment with a three-man defence again after his side’s 2-1 defeat to Watford in Gameweek 4.

Trippier’s reintegration with the rest of the Spurs squad will also be delayed, though his challenger at right-back, Serge Aurier (£5.9m), will have had a long-haul flight back from Africa after Ivory Coast’s match against Rwanda on Sunday.

Whether these factors will have any bearing on Pochettino’s choices at full-back remains to be seen, however, and there is a danger of overanalysing international break minutes at this early stage of the season.

Fabian Delph, the likely alternative to Benjamin Mendy at left-back in the Manchester City side, played 68 minutes in central midfield, while team-mate Kyle Walker (whose cross provided the assist for the winning goal) was stationed at centre-half.

Trent Alexander-Arnold lasted most of the match at right wing-back, meanwhile, just three-and-a-half days before Liverpool take on Spurs in the Gameweek 5 curtain-raiser. Club colleague Joe Gomez (£5.0m), whose first-team prospects were enhanced by media reports surrounding Dejan Lovren’s ongoing unavailability, sat out this match on the bench.

Marcus Rashford, playing up front in Southgate’s now customary 3-5-2, scored England’s winner – though will, of course, be suspended for Manchester United’s next two league fixtures after his dismissal at Turf Moor in Gameweek 4.

Xherdan Shaqiri was a prominent figure for the visitors and his performance in a central role just off striker Mario Gavranovic would have caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp – albeit not in a position that is workable in Liverpool’s usual 4-3-3 set-up.

Shaqiri had more penalty box touches and attempts on goal from inside the area than any player on show at the King Power Stadium, striking the woodwork with one of his shots.

Stephan Lichtsteiner, whose absence from the match-day squad in the 6-0 win over Iceland prompted whispers of an injury to the Arsenal right-back, played all 90 minutes of the match in Leicester alongside Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar. Schar, who registered two assists at the weekend, further demonstrated his ability with the ball at this feet by creating a further two unconverted chances for his team-mates. Granit Xhaka also started the match for the Swiss.

Poland 1-1 Republic of Ireland

  • Cyrus Christie (£4.4m) – 54 minutes
  • Kevin Long (£4.3m) – 90 minutes
  • Matt Doherty (£4.4m) – 36 minutes
  • Jeff Hendrick (£5.5m) – 54 minutes
  • Jan Bednarek (£3.9m) – 29 minutes

Seamus Coleman missed the Republic of Ireland’s 1-1 draw in Poland last night and national team boss Martin O’Neill had an update on the Everton defender’s condition:

Seamus went for a scan, he has a little stress fracture, which is a concern.

Seamus could easily have got a flight home, but he stayed with the team.

He is a great captain, a really great captain. He is inspirational and obviously we hope he is back in time for the games coming up.

Reports in the press suggest the right-back may be out for weeks or even possibly a month or two, though there has yet to be confirmation of the injury from the Toffees or the player himself.

Coleman’s issue is yet another blow to Marco Silva, whose Everton squad is ravaged by injury and suspension.

Jonjoe Kenny (£4.4m), owned by just 0.2% of FPL managers, could be the beneficiary in Coleman’s absence given the dearth of options available to Silva at right-back and across the whole of the defence. One of Leighton Baines (£5.4m) or Lucas Digne (£4.8m), of course, could be asked to do a job on their weaker side.

Burnley’s back-up centre-back Kevin Long was the only Premier League-based player to play the full 90 minutes, with Cyrus Christie, Matt Doherty and Jeff Hendrick having their game-time managed. Shane Duffy and Ciaran Clark (both £4.5m) sat out the match in Wroclaw on the bench.

Stephen Ward (£4.9m) picked up a knock in the defeat to Wales at the weekend and returned to Burnley before yesterday’s match. Ward was substituted in three consecutive matches before sitting out the defeat to Manchester United, though there has been no confirmation from the Clarets as to any underlying medical problem that the 33-year-old defender may have.

Lukasz Fabianski remained unused on the Polish bench, though Jan Bednarek came on as a second-half substitute for the hosts. Bednarek is said to be playing through the pain barrier at the moment with tendonitis, though hasn’t featured at all for Southampton in the league this season.

Northern Ireland 3-0 Israel

  • Jonny Evans (£4.9m) – 90 minutes
  • Craig Cathcart (£4.5m) – 90 minutes
  • Steven Davis (£4.8m) – 90 minutes

Jonny Evans lined up alongside Craig Cathcart in the centre of the Northern Ireland defence as Michael O’Neill’s side ran out comfortable winners at Windsor Park.

Cathcart, who scored in Watford’s 2-1 win over Spurs in Gameweek 4, recorded more penalty box touches (three) than any defender in Belfast last night and registered an attempt on goal from inside the Israel area.

Steven Davis, yet to feature for Southampton in the league this season, scored from one of his three attempts on goal as he looks to work his way back into Mark Hughes’ plans.

Davis revealed that he had spoken to the Saints boss about his lack of opportunities:

It’s quite open and we’ve had a chat. I played in a cup game the other night and obviously it was good to get 90 minutes under the belt.

Ultimately it’s frustration, as it is for any player who isn’t playing. That’s the aim every week when you go to training and get yourself ready to play on a Saturday. But things in football can change very quickly as well.

Obviously, I am coming off the back of the second half of last season where I was injured but the main focus during the summer and pre-season was getting myself right and fit. The body is feeling good and I am ready to go. I know what qualities are needed.

Brighton’s Beram Kayal (£4.4m) was not in Israel’s match-day squad, meanwhile.

Other Business

As well as the news about Coleman, Marco Silva was hit with a further injury scare yesterday: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.4m) came off only nine minutes after being introduced as a second-half substitute in England under-21’s victory over Latvia on Tuesday afternoon.

The full extent of Calvert-Lewin’s problem is yet to be confirmed, but Ademola Lookman (£5.2m) – who played in this match along with Jonjoe Kenny – could be the beneficiary on the flank if his team-mate is ruled out.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£4.1m), meanwhile, was not involved in the match-day squad – leading to a frenzy of social media speculation about the reasons for his absence. No word has come from Crystal Palace or the Football Association, however.

    Is it true Salah and Mané is at rotation risk? Sounds silly to me..

    1. Sweetboi
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 8 months ago

      There's a possibility with the CL looming.

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty

      Less likely against their bigger Prem rivals I'd think but Southampton is a concern...

    Bottomed, interested for answers for Rafa’s approach.

    How do we expecting Newcastle to set up against Arsenal? Are the going to go ultra defensive like they did v Chelsea/City or have a go?

    1. Sweetboi
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 8 months ago

      We can't defend, so I expect Newcastle to attack a bit more.

      Honest opinion...Newcastle will be cautious, playing hard ball on certain Arsenal players...depends how they will respond...can’t see any clean sheets there...can be high scoring game too

        • 2 Years

        Hmm, not sure about high scoring but can certainly see both teams nicking a goal.

        Tempted to move Auba onto Lukaku..

            Bournemouth and Leicester have potential to be high scoring game too...

              Check out the last 8 meetings between the two sides, its never been more high scoring that 1-1.

      2. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        2 years, 8 months ago

        Who can forget the 4-4 with 2 x Joey Barton goals, 2 from Arsenal in the first 3 minutes (Theo after 1 min), 2 x RVP, a sending off and a screaming 87th min equaliser from the late Tiote - that would do the neutral!

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 8 months ago

          ,,and Newc were 0-4 down!

            Apsolutely...the thing is here...Arsenal defence is not really good...so, anything can happen...

              I can see Arsenal playing with 2 forwards...just to try to score more then opposition

            2. Jon Walter's Hatty
              • 7 Years
              2 years, 8 months ago

              If Cech and/or his defenders keep thinking he is Cruyff it's gonna happen...

    3. DivocksHighSocks

      Newc fan here. Expecting us to play 4-4-2 in all likelihood, negate as much space as possible, then try and hit on the break.

      Not as negative as against City and Chelsea but I can't imagine us flying at them on the front foot. I can see us snatching a goal, but it depends how many we can keep out the other end.

    Gray or Maddison?

    Stats are for Gray:

    Gray (5.5m) v Maddison (6.6m)

    Mins 336 v 306

    Goals 1 v 1

    Assists 0 v 1

    Shots 8 v 8

    Shots in box 4 v 2

    Pen box touches 16 v 8

    Chances created 2 v 5

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Maddison has better stats and looks like a key player

    Salah sellers.

    Mo’s next four are tot, SOU, che, MCI.

    Last season in the same fixture Salah scores 4 goals. Goals were two against Southampton, one against City and one against Spurs. The Chelsea game was a 1-0 loss.

    So that’s a goal per game average without accounting for any assists or bonus he may have got, which I don’t have the data for.

    Doesn’t look to bad to me.

    1. Silecro
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 8 months ago

      For bonus points you dont need to have data, since he probably got none xD Salah is most fixtureproof player,yes. Managing minutes and lot of games in quick succession is what worries me, with this time stronger bench, which wasnt the case last year

    2. 21Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 8 months ago

      Shhh it’s their stupid move

    3. stat
        2 years, 8 months ago

        I don't think he'll do badly in the next 4, but I do think that Hazard has a good chance of outscoring him vs CAR whu LIV sou

        Hazard is also a bonus points magnet even if he's way less threatening than Salah.

        Also it's not just Hazard vs Salah, but Hazard + 2.3m vs Salah.

        So in my case it's Hazard + Dilva vs Salah + Walcott and I think there's a clear winner between the two combinations there.

        1. Udo
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 8 months ago

          I get you point, but disagree as Dilva is on rotation risk. Replace Wally with another one in that price braked and it becomes a different story in my opinion.

          1. stat
              2 years, 8 months ago

              He's retired from international football and he's possibly City's most creative player. He is a rotation risk, but I think he'll start much more often than not until KdB is back.

        2. Like i said Lacazette
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          What about MANE!?

          1. 21Owen
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            What about him

        3. french holiday
          • 3 Years
          2 years, 8 months ago

          salah will probably miss one of the games and be limited to 60mins.

        4. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 8 months ago

          So? That was last season.

          1. Smurf
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 years, 8 months ago

            Ok.

            1. COK3Y5MURF
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 years, 8 months ago

              Sure, you could look at it just for an idea, but it matters little in the big picture. If you think he'll get similar returns in those games every season, you're just superstitious. Different form, different manager for Chelsea, so much changes in a year.

              And we weren't debating selling for Hazard in a similar way last season, were we? What matters is who scores more now.

        Triple LFC on a WC madness?

        Currently on Alonso, Mendy, Robertson, Salah, Hazard, Mané and Aguero with Callum Wilson, Neves, Patricio and Hughes as the cheap enablers.

        Is Trippier or even one of Pereira/Chilwell better options than Robertson for the next five fixtures?

        1. stat
            2 years, 8 months ago

            I wouldn't go for Trippier since Poch will probably rotate his full-backs as he tends to around UCL games (and other games).

            I think it's possible that Pereira/Chilwell outscore Robertson over the next 5, but as a WCer I know that I'm going to want to bring Robertson back in and he's been creating a lot of chances, plus Liverpool have only conceded 1 goal (albeit against much easier opposition). So personally I'm sticking with Robertson as getting rid of him is just an extra headache for the future.

          • Sweetboi
            • 5 Years
            2 years, 8 months ago

            I'd risk Trippier if you've got a good bench. Leicester defender could also be good with those fixtures.

            1. stat
                2 years, 8 months ago

                Keep in mind that Poch has brought on Tripper/Davies with a few mins to play in the past, so having a strong bench might be irrelevant

                1. Sweetboi
                  • 5 Years
                  2 years, 8 months ago

                  He always brings Davies on...Trippier not so much,

                  1. stat
                      2 years, 8 months ago

                      True, I stand corrected

                2 years, 8 months ago

                Huge pool fan but I have dropped Salah, I know people will say his stats are up there but 13 mil goes a long way and he hasn't passed the eye test for me

                • 4 Years

                Difficult one. Probably an unchanged side if I was manager meanining he starts at the weekend but who knows.

              2. Sweetboi
                • 5 Years
                2 years, 8 months ago

                Think he'll generally be nailed...he did play a lot of minutes for Wales but should be okay.

            3. Sweetboi
              • 5 Years
              2 years, 8 months ago

              a) Bennett + Vardy

              b) Trippier + Wilson

                Nah, the game is far enough away.

              A) Mané & Pedro

              B) Milner & Hazard

                • 7 Years
                2 years, 8 months ago

                A out of those

                Someone decent over Milner and I would go for B

                A - but I like Milner as a differential.

                2 years, 8 months ago

                B is better without Milly

              Just watched the Scoutcast, they need to drop the games and quizzes, im not there for entertainment, stick to the FF chat. If i wanted to watch unfunny blokes be unfunny id watch Dave. Also, bring back Mark.

                Agree, appeal is fading...

                This is coming up again and again.
                Its like a kids programme now.
                Dont get me wrong a like Jonty, in previous years, very funny and great one liners, magic beans etc. However as a presenter, he sounds like he is talking to 5 year olds.
                Az and Andy and far and away the best on the shoe.

                Anyone remember one of the very early Scoutcasts where one of the first contributors (can't remember his name, now long since gone) was introduced and he totally froze with stage fright? It was an awkward listen.

              Salah Mane Bilva Walcott Stephens
              Aguero Arnie Kamara
              1ft. 0.3 itb
              Tomkins Walcott and weak bench
              Where to start? Would like Richarlison next week. Not a fan of hits unless deep hole...

                • 3 Years
                2 years, 8 months ago

                This week: Arnie for Zaha/Mitro.

                Next week Walcott/Bsilva to Richarlison

              Helle there guys! What todo? 0.4ITB

              Kepa
              Mendy-Robertson-Wan Bizzi
              Salah, Mane, Bilva, Mhki
              Aguero, King, Zaha

              Subs : Hamar, Bednarek, Peltier, Stephens

              A) Save FT
              B) Mhki, Peltier > Billing, Alonso (4-3-3, Billing benched)
              C) Bilva, Peltier > Billing, Alonso (Then I can afford King > Mitro next week)
              D) Smth else

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 years, 8 months ago

              Current team is:
              Fab* Foster
              Alonso Mendy Robbo Pereira WanB
              Salah Pedro Walcott* Fraser* Hughes*
              Aguero Auba* Kamara*.
              At the end of gw 4 I did Peltier and Bilva to Alonso and Hughes so already on a -4.
              My midfield is shambles, WC needed?
              WC would maybe be:
              Pat* Foster
              Alonso Mendy Pereira WanB Bennet*
              Salah Hazard* Maddison* Pedro Hojbjerg*
              Aguero Mitro* Wilson*.
              Thoughts?

                • 2 Years
                2 years, 8 months ago

                Or I could just stick as is and hope either Walcott or Fraser play this week with WanB off the bench.

              Tosun to Jimenez, I need to do this for some future plans, question is do it now for FTE and avoid price drop or wait till next week.

                2 years, 8 months ago

                Tosun isn't a terrible pick really, just hasn't got a goal yet - hold for a week as he's playing West Ham, and you can reshape with 2FT from there

                1. Slaps
                  • 9 Years
                  2 years, 8 months ago

                  Cheers, I know it's probably the right call but he really is starting to grate on me

                • 10 Years

                Isn't Jimenez a doubt for this weekebd? I've seen somewhere.

              Kun, Laca and King's braces incoming...

            12. Cabellafan
              • 6 Years
              2 years, 8 months ago

              How bout this WC? :

              McCarthy - Hamer
              Alonso - Mendy - Holebas - Bennett - WBissaka
              Salah - Pedro - Maddison - Fraser - Hojberg
              Kane - Aguero - Mitrovic

                • 4 Years
                2 years, 8 months ago

                Your midfield is a bit light for my taste, maybe downgrade Mitro and get Schurrle instead of Hojberg

              May I ask why is it so urgent to get ride of Mkhi, just the week before he was essential sort of?
