Scout Notes

FPL managers’ hopes for a Wolves clean sheet dashed by Mooy brace

The Sunday tea-time fixture at Molineux is the focus of this latest Scout Notes piece, a match that saw Huddersfield Town gain their first victory on the road in 2018/19 to condemn Wolverhampton Wanderers to their third straight home defeat.

It was a bitterly disappointing afternoon for the many Fantasy managers who were banking on a home win to nil and, for owners of Wolves’ defensive assets, this was a fifth straight match without a clean sheet.

At the other end, talismanic Mexican striker Raul Jimenez was 18mm away from what would have been his ninth goal involvement of the campaign.

Make no mistake, though – Huddersfield were excellent value for their victory and not for the first time this season proved to be stubborner opposition than many anticipated.

We round up the goals, assists, injury news, manager quotes and Fantasy talking points from the Terriers’ deserved win in the West Midlands.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-2 Huddersfield Town

  • Goals: Aaron Mooy (£5.1m) x2
  • Assists: Erik Durm (£4.4m), Steve Mounie (£5.8m)

While Wolves were winless in four Premier League games going into this fixture, the superb performance of Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal a fortnight ago gave owners of their Fantasy assets much hope coming into this Gameweek 13 clash with Huddersfield Town.

The hosts were unrecognisable from the exhilarating, counter-attacking side that merited more than one point in north London in Gameweek 12 and were tactically found out by David Wagner’s team on Sunday, with the visitors exacting an aggressive high press from the off and suffocating the influential Ruben Neves (£5.0m) and Joao Moutinho (£5.4m) in midfield.

This was the second time this season that Wolves have produced a dismal display immediately after an international break (see also: Watford in Gameweek 9), though some perspective is needed – Santo’s side sit 11th in the Premier League having held the Gunners and both Manchester clubs to draws already this season. Mid-table is surely around “par” for where we’d expect last season’s Championship winners to be right now.

Fantasy managers who are anticipating, or at least hoping for, the likes of Matt Doherty (£4.9m) to regularly deliver against lowly opposition were given a reality check on Sunday, with the Irish wing-back and his team-mates emerging from this encounter with nothing but appearance points to their names.

There will be further monster hauls from Doherty and co. again this year (who knows, maybe even as soon as this Friday against Cardiff City), but Fantasy bosses may have to accept that there will be plenty more frustrating days like today for this young, developing side who are ultimately still finding their feet at a higher level.

Having watched the way Huddersfield targeted Wolves’ two central midfielders and pinned back their wing-backs, it may well be that teams are already starting to figure out a way of combating Santo’s outfit too. The accusation that the Wolves manager has no “Plan B”, while unkind to a coach who has achieved much with the West Midlands club, may have some truth in it.

Santo acknowledged how bad his side had been after full-time:

I am very disappointed for everybody, for us, for the fans, they deserved a better performance and a better game than today.

We were very bad, very bad. We played very bad and when you play bad you lose.

Everybody made mistakes. We didn’t have the ball, when we did have it we lost the ball, we rushed ourselves, we were not compact and too far away from each other.

Credit to Huddersfield, they pressed us very well and deserved to win the game.

I was disappointed at the way we conceded, and we didn’t create many. There was only one moment, option for us to score.

We were too far away from each other on the pitch. Defensively and offensively they have to keep close to each other.

Doherty was peripheral in the first half and, while slightly improving after the break and featuring more prominently in the Huddersfield box, never really looked as if he was going to trouble Jonas Lossl (£4.4m) between the sticks.

A Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m) pass that Doherty failed to control in the visitors’ area late on was about as involved as the wing-back got at the business end of the pitch and the Ireland defender was partly culpable for the fifth-minute goal that wiped out a few million clean sheets across the world – Erik Durm (£4.4m) skinning Doherty for pace and then cutting the ball back for Aaron Mooy (£5.1m) to expertly convert on the edge of the box.

Ruben Vinagre (£4.3m) had a mixed afternoon on the opposite flank on his first ever Premier League start, with regular left wing-back Jonny (£4.5m) ruled out for six weeks due to a knee injury.

Vinagre was full of running and trickery going forward on his full debut, though left much to be desired defensively and the consensus from Wolves fans that he is a more attacking, less tactically astute version of Jonny seems to be on the money.

Conor Coady (£4.5m), Ryan Bennett (£4.2m) and Willy Boly (£4.5m) were given a torrid time by the bustling Steve Mounie (£5.8m), meanwhile, with Mooy and Alex Pritchard (£4.8m) buzzing around the Beninese striker and finding pockets of space between Wolves’ back three and their central midfield.

Ivan Cavaleiro‘s (£5.2m) abject afternoon (along with Moutinho’s) was ended at half-time, while Helder Costa (£4.9m) produced precious little of note on the opposite wing.

As usual, it was Jimenez – the most-bought FPL forward of Gameweek 12 – who was Wolves’ main attacking threat, though not for the first time this season the Mexican striker’s radar was awry.

The Wolves number nine wasted a glorious chance on 66 minutes when the prone Terence Kongolo (£4.3m) played him onside when clean through on goal and a short while later Jimenez blazed wide from an acute angle after a through-ball from Costa.

Though Jimenez’s goal conversion rate (6.3%, the worst of any FPL striker who has scored at least one Premier League strike in 2018/19) is a source of frustration for his owners, that he finds himself presented with so many goalscoring opportunities on what seems like a weekly basis still marks him out as perhaps the stand-out budget forward option in the sub-£6.0m price bracket.

Indeed, Jimenez was 18mm away from getting on the scoresheet in this encounter when his goalbound header was hacked off the line by the excellent Philip Billing (£4.5m) in the nick of time.

Billing, a popular bench fodder option this season, was one of a number of excellent performers in the Huddersfield Town side at Molineux.

It will take more than a 2-0 win at Wolves to generate any sort of interest in their attack-minded Fantasy assets, though: no club has scored fewer goals than the Terriers this season.

Mooy’s brace has seen him transferred in by more than 3,000 FPL managers already, but these were his first league goals in almost an entire year and the Australian midfielder managed this feat without setting foot in the Wolves penalty area once.

Mooy’s second goal came courtesy of a free-kick following a foul on Mounie just outside the box.

Mounie is another striking option available to FPL managers in the sub-£6.0m bracket but, as good as he was here, his goal threat is generally very limited and indeed he is yet to be on the scoresheet this season.

A 36th-minute header straight at Rui Patricio (£4.6m) from a Mooy corner was the best chance that Mounie had to open his 2018/19 account, though the Benin international did have another headed effort hacked away from almost on the goal-line by Doherty shortly before the break.

Pritchard is an intriguing budget midfield option at £4.8m given that he is almost playing alongside Mounie in a 3-5-2 and Fantasy managers may be willing to overlook his relative lack of goal threat (one goal and no assists this season) with some juicy home fixtures coming up before Christmas.

Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton visit the John Smith’s Stadium between now and Boxing Day and there may be a modicum of interest in their budget defensive assets given the ease with which they dealt with Wolves on Sunday, not allowing their hosts a single “big chance” all match.

Indeed, in the last half-dozen Gameweeks, no Premier League club has conceded fewer clear-cut opportunities than David Wagner’s side.

Christopher Schindler (£4.3m) is perhaps the biggest draw given his aerial prowess and security of starts, and the Huddersfield stopper indeed came out of Gameweek 13 with two bonus points to go with his clean sheet.

Durm and Tommy Smith (£4.4m), meanwhile, ably filled in for the injured Chris Lowe and the suspended Zanka (both £4.4m) as Wagner was rewarded for keeping faith in his wing-back system.

The Terriers boss said:

The players have shown better performances – or at least comparable performances – this season but they have not got the rewards.

Today they got two goals, a clean sheet and have done fantastically well. I’m so happy for them.

They’ve shown a lot of bravery to press an opponent such as Wolves so high up the pitch. We were able to minimise their opportunities.

Speaking of Mooy, Wagner added:

Aaron Mooy is a top-class player. He has this calmness on the ball. His decision-making was great.

You will rarely find a player with such good technique and vision who is prepared to work so hard for the team.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho (Gibbs-White 46′), Neves, Vinagre; Costa (Jota 75′), Jimenez, Cavaleiro (Traore 46′).

Huddersfield Town XI (3-5-1-1): Lossl; Smith, Kongolo, Schindler; Hadergjonaj, Hogg (Stankovic 90′), Billing (Williams 90′), Mooy, Durm; Pritchard (Mbenza 90′); Mounie.

      Time to ditch Chelsea assets?
      Team looks out of form and fixtures get tougher...

        Are you kidding men? We lost one game this season and have 1 tough match in the next 12. Back to the drawing board fella.

          I think you should get rid of all your Chelsea assets for hits before a home match v Fulham

          One bad game against a good team doesn’t mean Chelsea are no longer a good team.

          Keep Alonso.

          Ditch Hazard if no Sterling but keep if you have Sterling.

          I think Alonso for his price is disposable. Hazard is the one to keep. Fulham at home he could cause damage.

            Stop trying to convince everyone that selling Hazard is a bad idea

            1. La Roja
              • 6 Years
              20 days, 10 hours ago

              Why would he do that if he owns him?

        • Champagne supernova
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          20 days, 10 hours ago

          Hazard is staying in my team unless he gets he get a serious injury, form is temporary class is permanent.

        • Konstaapeli
          • 2 Years
          20 days, 10 hours ago

          Let's just hope Sarri bins Morata and plays Giroud.

      3. Spokey
        • 3 Years
        20 days, 11 hours ago

        Salah and Kamara to Sterling and Arnatovic worth -4?

        Ederson - hamer
        Alonso - Robertson - Doherty - Digne - AWB
        Salah - Mane - Richarlison - Anderson - Fraser
        Aguero - Wilson - Kamara

        1. pundit of punts
          • 5 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          Yes

        2. Demel
          • 7 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          Quite probably. Although Arnie has flattered to deceive for a number of weeks now.

        3. tucaoneo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          Arnautovic is a liability. Has ongoing knee issue. Picks up new injury easily. Manager doesn't protect him well. Keeping him is one of my wrong decisions.

          1. Wirbelwind
            • 1 Year
            20 days, 10 hours ago

            Went Mitro -> Arnie 2 GW ago ...

            His next 8 games are fantastic though, wh0 would you replace him with.

        4. Little Red Lacazette
          • 2 Years

          Yeah

        5. Spokey

          Thanks for the replys

      4. UpAndAway
        • 4 Years
        20 days, 11 hours ago

        Anyone looking at Delph? Mendy out long term surely ensures he plays more times than not?

        1. pundit of punts
          • 5 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          Definitely an option.

          1. UpAndAway
            • 4 Years
            20 days, 11 hours ago

            Laporte down to Delph or even Doherty up to him. I’ve had double Wolves defence in the past 5 GW and they have been dire defensively.

        2. Amey
            20 days, 11 hours ago

            Nah.
            Not enough attacking option + hold up 1 priceless city spot

          • Demel
            • 7 Years
            20 days, 11 hours ago

            A good option but I have no room at the inn with Sane, Aguero & Sterling in my team.

            1. Lignja
              • 1 Year

          • 3 Years
          20 days, 11 hours ago

          My move of Trippier and Mendy to TAA and Walker for a -4 paid off big time this week.

          I think a -4 for a Wolves defender this week might be a good idea.

          1. DAZZ
            • 4 Years
            20 days, 11 hours ago

            How is a -4 for Wolves defence a good idea? Cardiff are a much much better attacking side than Huddersfield particularly at home.

            1. mad_beer ✅
              • 3 Years
              20 days, 11 hours ago

              Cardiff have scored 0.85 goals per match. Wolves have conceded 1.15 goals per match.

                  I expect the colour of Hazard's flag only to get darker as the week progresses landing owners in trouble as they can't captain or ditch him. Don't like this kind of situations at all.

                    Firmino. Is he now potentially coming into form or is it a false dawn?

                    Manchester United. Was their decent pre IB form unfounded or was the Palace game a blip caused by the disharmony around returning from the IB?

                    Big Hitters. Is sitting tight on big hitters longer term or using moves to switch them around the best strategy.

                    Getting Sane at 9.2 and taking the odd rotation pain. Is it wort it? In fact is it worth having both him and Sterling and sacrificing Kun who fails away from home?

                    billing, low price and has been very close to scoring recently.
                    wolves, good start gone from bad to worse losing at home to a bottom club.
                    Your talking point should be spurs, they where so good on saturday, great fixtures from gw 15. Heung min son was on fire!

                    Is it best to just double up on Sterling and Aguero so you never miss out?
                    Is Hazard now the fall guy, because it's now important to keep Salah.
                    How are we fitting Kane and Arsenal in with the fixture swing, when we don't want to drop any of Salah/Aguero/Hazard/Sterling - it's one thing saying they're good options, but we still have to fit them in - maybe better going to Alli/Eriksen to save the cash?

                    Hazard. Someone here posted that he is yet to score when Morata is playing. Is Sarri destroying Hazard by starting Morata ahead of Giroud.

                    Wolves. Is the honeymoon over? Time to ditch their assets? Especially for those doubling and tripling on their defense

                    Is it time to drop the highest owned players Aguero, Salah and Hazard to fit in Sterling, Sane, Kane?

                    Team has to be Spurs. They have been showing relatively poor underlying stats all season and despite picking up the results haven't performed well for some time. So much so that on the eve of the match Statsbomb even wrote an article on this very subject!

                    https://statsbomb.com/2018/11/whats-up-with-tottenham/

                    Then in one match they completely blew all this out the water. Destroyed a previously good chelsea 3-0, with the expected goals up at 3 aswell. 18 shots taken in the match. So which is the real Spurs? was this one good performance a blip, or a sign of a return to form? And if it was a return to form with Son, Alli, Eriksen back, will they be able to play much together anyway with their congested fixture list?

                    It would be good to get the scoutcast's thoughts on which assets(s) to get, if any. Kane is probabaly the only guarenteed stater every week but he's fairly unreliable as a captain. For 3-4 million less are the midfield options preferable, and capable of matching or bettering Kane? If so, which are the best options, in your opinion?

                      Do you think it is surprising that Spurs played so well when:

                      1) They play 4 at the back, but Trippier wasn't at RB
                      2) Moura and Lamela weren't playing and Poch reverted back to the formation of last season with Kane, Erikson, Son and Alli starting

                      Knowing that Moura and Lamela will be out of the first XI for an extended period of time would make getting in Kane and/or Eriksen attractive

                        Well Trippier gives them a lot going forward, but yeah I expected the defence to tighten up without him.

                        You may well be right there, however to smash an unbeaten Chelsea still surprised me haha! If the key to their improvement is as simple as planing Kane, Alli, Son and Eriksen together, then great. But look at their fixture congestion.

                    kane,salah,mane,eriksen,alli,hazard,sane,sterling,kun,lacazette and how can we slot them in or is it a lottery as all have pretty good fixtures till gw25 or is it better to stick with the talisman like kane and hazard as chelsea and spurs have the best fixtures of the bunch as if fit both will play 90 mins and are on pens and form a team around these 2 during the christmas period

Which are the top picks from each and is it better to go for a set and forget like Dilva or the explosiveness of Sterling/Sane knowing that some games are going to be no shows or cameo appearances. From Spurs Ali, Son or Eriksen? Finally who is the better pick over next 6+ GW Kane or Kun assuming that you are picking one of those up top and 1 or 2 midfielders from those teams which is the best combo.

                        Lacazette, when fit, could be the rank gainer IMO. Cheaper than Aguero, Kane, Salah, Haz and Auba but he has the potential to keep pace with them especially with Arsenal's fixtures easing soon. Emery has somehow managed to improve Arsenal's away form (dropping Ozil?) and that makes them dangerous as they have always been very good at home.

                      Hi Jonty,

                      Lurker here and don't know where to post this correctly, but I think my team performance might be worth discussing in the "Rough and Sweet" section of the ScoutCast. Had a great gameweek with triple City midfield (sweet), but unfortunately had my captain on blanking Richarlison (rough). Tried to hedge my bets with a lot of people captaining him, but in hindsight I should have doubled up on my correct valuation of City mids. Keep up the great work with the site!

                    4m in the bank. Used my FT. Planning ahead -

                    GW 15 - Aguero ➡ Kane
                    GW 16 - Save
                    GW 17 - Richarlison + Jimenez ➡ Schurrle + Lacazette

                    Can also do Richarlison ➡ Mane in GW 16 but the former looks more enticing to me with Arsenal fixtures and Fulham having new manager effect.

                    Thoughts? Any other ideas welcome. Not going to touch that defense though with Alonso, Trippier and TAA scoring set pieces and the other two being excellent backups. 🙂

                        This GW, yes. What's wrong with that when they play a leaky BOU who never park the bus.

                        Kane will be there from next GW.

                        That’s the best option this week.

                        And Kane from next week.

                        Only lacks Hazard !!

                          Not worried about Hazard for now. Looks to have gone off the boil and an injury doubt now. Plenty of other options more explosive than him for a lesser price.

                          Nice team & decent plan. Looking at something similar by getting Sterling, Sane & Kane over the next 2 gameweeks.

                            Looks like that's where the smart money is at for now. I also expect Aguero to get rested in GW 15 before the crunch game vs Chelsea.

                              Yup I think a move for Kane is a no brainer that week. Yes there is some risk involved but that’s with every move we make.

                          They dont play until Sunday so think he'll play. What happened him anyway? I see he's flagged but played the 90mins

                            thats what is confusing ,they didnt flag after the match but after the bs article with a deceiving headline was released they flagged him

                            Near the last ten minutes it was obvious he was hurt. They had used all subs so couldn't get him off. If they had one they would have pulled him for sure. I don't know if that means he won't be ready for Sunday but for sure he was useless to the team on the pitch by this point.

                          I'm considering playing 5 at the back this week

                          Alonso Robbo TAA Doherty AWB

                          would mean benching Richarlison and Gudmundsson.

                          Madness?

                            snap although I've bennett in place of Doherty - so no not madness

                            Playing 4 at the back myself.

                            Not madness.

                            I would play Gundmundsson over Doherty but you might not like Gudmundsson vs Wan Bissaka, so not really a madness

                                Ya I hate those games where a DF plays a FW , feels counter productive.
                                Hence the reason I'm benching Rich after his blank v Cardiff and playing double Lpool DF (after benching TAA this week)
                                .....queue a brace each for Rich and Gudm lol

                              My exact back 5 and I'm playing all of them currently.

                              My bench is currently Wilson, Richarlison & Brooks, although I'm on a wildcard currently so things may change.

                              Best of luck!

                                      I did Mane to Sterling before the price rise on Saturday, feeling a bit of buyers remorse as I have no Liverpool attack now.

                                          I have done Salah ➡ Sane inspite of having Sterling and Kun. No Liverpool attack for me now as well. Don't mind it a bit as I'm confident in the City lads bringing home the bacon.

                                            Yea it's the way I've gone, have Robbo and Trent with Sterling and Aguero. Still feel a bit uneasy but got to stick with it now.

                                              it's the Merseyside derby this GW and EVE defence have looked solid in the past couple of games. It could be another low scoring game. I intend to sell Mane myself, though have Firmino. But I would be worried without LIV cover against BUR in GW15 if I were you.

                                          4. DAZZ

                                            Was Hazard baited into making a comment about the ‘injury’? To me it seems odd a player comments on an injury like that if it isnt an issue? I dont like the look of the situation myself.

                                                How's this looking for next GW? 0 ft, 3.2m in the bank:

                                                Alisson
                                                Alonso | Robertson | Laporte | Doherty | Bennett
                                                Sterling | Hazard
                                                Aguero | Arnautovic | Jimenez

                                                Hamer | Richarlison | Diangana | Hojbjerg

                                                Any news on Hazard & Arnautovic injurys? Would be tempted to get Salah back for Hazard if he's out.

                                                  No Salah is a worry, he’ll explode soon.

                                                      Unfortunate thing is I didn't follow through with my Salah > Sterling transfer until this GW.

                                                      Knowing Sterling is also better at Home than Away I decided to stick with Salah for one more week rather than spend the -4 on the transfer!

                                                        Fair enough man i havnt seen that post before. Your team is good in that case im not sure about the Wolves double up. Id maybe look at Dunk/Duffy for Bennett mate.

                                                          Yeah, wish I'd kept AWB rather than Bennet. Doherty came in for Laporte which brought around the double up.

                                                          Need to change it but until I have a free transfer that I don't need to use elsewhere going to be tough.

                                                        Good job I only played one this week then and good job it's a completely different game where previous results have no impact on this coming fixtures result then!

                                                        1. Cruyff's Eleven

                                                          Don't completely agree with you tbh. Jonny out seemed to impact the backline a bit, plus opposition teams seem to have figured out how to play Wolves, and in particular the wing - backs better now... (see article above).

                                                          Unless a team is of Liverpool (Robbo) or Chelsea (Alonso) quality it's not easy to play that type of attacking football. Huddersfield had Wolves playing in their own half, I'm expecting Cardiff (who are a more natural attacking side anyway) to be trying the same....

                                                          Mind you, I'm certainly no expert, just using common sense....

                                                            All valid points, for me it's the situation I'm in. Doherty I'd say is a great pick no matter the fixture, so attacking worth having in especially vs Cardiff.

                                                            The double up with Bennett is obviously the questionable choice. With their defense being more leaky of late I'd be hoping it would be something they are working on to address in training, if it was against a more potent team than Cardiff I certainly wouldn't be doubling up.

                                                            I guess the choice is between him vs Cardiff and Richarlison vs Liverpool, it may still be that I switch the bench around in that regard.

                                                                  One thing that "influences" me is that I'm experiencing a season I've never had before, mainly off the back of the right captaincy choices (GW5 the main proponent) and following the template a little more... This works as a buffer in case one or two players in the template fail and/or a player not hugely owned in the top 10K hauls (both happened this week). The drop in rank isn't that huge as most players around me suffer the same fate....

                                                                  Dropping Salah, Aguero and Hazard is too risky unless half of the top 10K do the same...

                                                                  Sterling is on the cusp of becoming of the template I think, but the jury is still out on who's going to be replaced....

                                                                  Patience is the key here....

                                                    So many midweek games, so hard to keep my knee from jerking and making my first hit of the season

                                                        Go for it !!
                                                        Hit's with good rewards are great and fun 😛

                                                          can't even make a transfer that pays off at the moment, let alone a hit

                                                            Firmino (EVE)
                                                            Kane (ars)

                                                            I do fancy Kane to be able to do OK against that Arsenal defence.
