An assist for Hazard scant reward for FPL managers who kept faith

Sunday’s most forgettable local derby was also the first to take place, as a somewhat flat Chelsea side sleepwalked to a 2-0 victory over their west London rivals.

Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham put up a spirited performance and are displaying more backbone than they previously did under Slavisa Jokanovic, but a lack of cutting edge in the final third was telling as the Blues banked their seventh clean sheet in 14 league matches.

Maurizio Sarri’s side never got out of second gear but, as we will discuss, the emphasis was on solidification at Stamford Bridge rather than a gung-ho attacking display that owners of Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso would have yearned for prior to kick-off.

We round up all the goals, assists, Fantasy talking points, manager quotes and injury news from the Sunday lunchtime kick-off.

Chelsea 2-0 Fulham

  • Goals: Pedro (£6.3m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m)
  • Assists: N’Golo Kante (£4.9m), Eden Hazard (£11.0m)

If Eden Hazard‘s (£11.0m) owners had been told before kick-off that the Belgian playmaker would emerge from an encounter with the division’s leakiest defence with six FPL points, the vast majority would have been fairly underwhelmed.

In the end, Hazard’s excellent assist for Ruben Loftus-Cheek‘s (£5.2m) 81st-minute strike came as something of a blessed relief on what was another frustrating afternoon for the Belgian’s Fantasy investors.

Assist or not, a significant percentage of the FPL managers who own Hazard would perhaps have seen enough to jettison the Chelsea talisman with the Fulham game having been seen as a “last-chance saloon”.

Given the number of premium options elsewhere with better form and/or fixtures, pocketing the £11.0m needed for Hazard’s services would go a long way in funding moves for the likes of Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), Harry Kane (£12.3m) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m).

There were flashes of promise, however: Hazard producing several darting runs in from the left flank and a number of cute passes, one of which should have resulted in an assist when Olivier Giroud (£7.7m) spurned a presentable opportunity midway through the first half.

One of Hazard’s four shots should also have culminated in a “Fantasy assist”, too, with substitute Alvaro Morata (£8.8m) blazing over the rebound after the Belgian’s effort was parried by Sergio Rico (£4.4m).

The Belgium international’s only other shot on target was a direct free-kick that was fired straight at Rico.

The portents were promising ahead of kick-off, with Giroud named in the starting XI over Morata – the French striker having been on the pitch for all seven of Hazard’s Premier League goals this season.

A third-minute goal from Pedro (£6.3m) also boded well for a fruitful afternoon of attacking returns ahead, though Fulham didn’t capitulate as they have done on several occasions this season and had opportunities to level the scores themselves before Loftus-Cheek’s late clincher.

The chastening 3-1 defeat to Spurs last weekend played a part in Maurizio Sarri’s thinking this week and was perhaps the chief reason why the Blues didn’t cut loose after Pedro’s opener, as the Chelsea boss explained at full-time:

I think that we were a little tense. We defended a little better than in the last match, of course. We can do better in the offensive phase, but today the result was more important.

We gave more attention to the defensive phase today in order to kill the match and got a very good reaction for the level of application and attention.

Now we have to start to play our football in a better way.

Pedro made only his second start in nine Premier League matches and registered more shots on target than any other Chelsea player, though regular rotation with Willian (£7.4m) surely awaits the former Barcelona winger over a packed December schedule.

The same is true of the hit-and-miss strike duo of Giroud and Morata, as Sarri confirmed after the game:

They need to find continuity. Morata had a good period, Giroud is in a good period so we need more continuity. But I think its very normal to sometimes play Morata and sometimes Giroud, we have to play every three days so it’s normal.

Giroud didn’t do a great deal to further his case for more game-time, wasting that aforementioned chance provided to him by Hazard and then prodding at Rico from a Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.3m) cross.

Security of starts is something we’ve taken for granted in the Chelsea defence this season, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) and the Blues’ entire back four all making the team for the 14th league match in a row.

While Sarri is not renowned for his rotation, there may be rests ahead in December for a number of his backline.

Though he banked a seventh clean sheet in 14 matches and remains the leading points-scorer among FPL defenders, Marcos Alonso (£7.1m) was well below-par against Fulham and was hauled off on 78 minutes.

Sky Sports reported that Alonso had been withdrawn with a minor knock (yet to be confirmed by the club or other media outlets) though to the observer it looked purely tactical due to the left-back’s poor display, with the premium defender having failed to make a single key pass or deliver a successful cross all afternoon. Alonso also looked vulnerable defensively, with much of Fulham’s attacking play coming down Chelsea’s left flank.

While Alonso remains high on our watchlist and still represents relatively good value for money (only Trent Alexander-Arnold is returning more points per million spent among outfielders this season), it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see him rested against Wolves on Wednesday evening – particularly with Manchester City to come on Saturday.

Mateo Kovacic (£5.8m) was pictured with an ice pack on his leg after being substituted, meanwhile, though Sarri merely said the Croatian was “a bit tired” after the game.

The club did confirm that Ross Barkley (£5.8m) missed out with a knock, however.

Loftus-Cheek could deputise at Molineux if either player is unavailable, with Sarri praising the youngster at full-time:

In the last few weeks, he solved me problems. I was really very happy after the Europa League match because I think that was his best performance from a tactical point of view. Today I felt Kovacic was a bit tired and I put him on without problems.I was sure about his impact on the match.

Sarri also praised another midfielder, N’Golo Kante, someone who he had criticised after the defeat to Spurs:

I think he played very well. He defended very well. He needs to improve a little more tactically but that’s natural. For the national team, he usually plays with two midfielders. Last season sometimes with a two and sometimes with three, but in a central position, so it’s normal that he needs to improve.

Today he was better when the ball was on the other side of the pitch, I remember only one mistake in the first half. With the ball on the other side he has to stay close to Jorginho otherwise for us it’s a big problem. Jorginho is well able to make passes through the opponents but he’s not so good in the defensive phase with open spaces.

Kante supplied the assist for Pedro’s goal after winning the ball in midfield and was noticeably prominent in attacking situations in the first half, racking up more final third touches than Kovacic and Giroud.

Another defensive-minded asset who caught the eye from an attacking perspective was Fulham’s Calum Chambers (£4.2m), who was once again used “out of position” in central midfield.

Chambers had more attempts on goal than any Fulham player and three of his side’s four shots on target, including a header from a corner that was well saved by Kepa.

Ranieri said of the on-loan Arsenal player’s display:

He played very well. He’s a good midfielder because he understands what I want and, also, when he has the ball, he moves it very quickly and in the right way. I’m very very surprised.

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m), the most-bought FPL forward of Gameweek 14, didn’t have any meaningful attempt on goal but easier tests await in the coming weeks.

Mitrovic was paired up front with Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) in the first half, though Ranieri’s diamond formation was abandoned at half-time in favour of his more customary 4-4-1-1.

Ranieri said:

I tried to play with a diamond to close the central midfield for the Chelsea players because Chelsea want to pass the ball to Hazard, Giroud, Pedro and then from there attack the space or make one-two straight away and for this reason, I play with the diamond.

When you concede a goal from the beginning, it’s difficult. I changed the diamond at half-time and played with two wingers to make some problems to them and I think it was a good choice.

Tom Cairney (£4.8m) was a creative spark for Fulham in behind the striker(s) – creating three chances in total – and is perhaps a name to monitor as a budget-freeing, fifth-choice midfielder ahead of the Cottagers’ excellent run of fixtures from Gameweeks 17-20.

Andre Schurrle (£5.9m), meanwhile, missed the game as a precaution after he “felt a twinge” in training on Saturday.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso (Zappacosta 78′); Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic (Loftus-Cheek 67′); Pedro, Giroud (Morata 70′), Hazard.

Fulham XI (4-4-2 diamond): Rico; Christie, Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand; Chambers, Seri, Cairney (Kebano 76′), Johansen (Ayite 45′); Mitrovic, Sessegnon (Kamara 45′).

          Why would fpl veteran spend both transfers already Sunday?
          I guess you were chasing some value changes but still.

  6. mojoindojo
    • 4 Years

    Play one
    Jimenez
    Kante
    AWB

    1. Hurry Can
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Jiminez or AWB. Probably Jiminez

    2. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Awb

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 14 hours ago

      Do you have a CHE defender? If not I'd certainly play Jimenez.

      1. XabiAlonso
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 14 hours ago

        Owning a che defender has no effect on jiminez points

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          13 days, 14 hours ago

          Of course it doesn't, but the bigger upside is if you don't have your CHE clean sheet wiped out with a Jimmy goal. Alternatively, a CHE clean sheet mean no goal for Jimmy.
          The down side is that, for instance, Neves scores in a 1-0 for Wolves - how unlikely that is. Yer pays money and yer takes yer choice.

    4. balint84
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 14 hours ago

      3 cleansheet in a row from Palace? no way. play Jimenez

  7. Hurry Can
    • 1 Year
    13 days, 15 hours ago

    Seriously need help. No one could provide me the answer. 2 FT, 0.0ITB, who would you like to change?

    Fabianski (Hamer)
    AWB, VVD, Alonso (Doherty, Femenia)
    Salah, Sterling, Hazard, Richar, Martial
    Arnie, Wilson (Success)

    1. liverpool01
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Team looks good i would downgrade Salah after Burnley game or Hazard so you could get Aubameyang

      1. Hurry Can
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        I still have wildcard,, hoping to be crazy...but I cant see any transfer right now

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 15 hours ago

          Can you afford Foyth

    2. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Too much money in midfield. You should look to bring hevy hitter fw soon Kane/Auba

      1. Hurry Can
        • 1 Year
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        nah its serve me well so far rank 1,395 atm. I dont think big hitter fwd is the answer

        1. fenixri
          • 2 Years
          13 days, 15 hours ago

          Fair point, you cant have them all.

        2. liverpool01
          13 days, 15 hours ago

          With Spurs and Arsenal great run of fixtures coming up, you could be missing out

          1. Hurry Can
            • 1 Year
            13 days, 15 hours ago

            Could do Martial, VVD > TAA, Son. How about that?

        3. liverpool01
          13 days, 15 hours ago

          Nice rank

    3. Pino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Salah to Eriksen and maybe Marital to Siggy/Son.

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Same forward line but i have kane Ings and fraser you have Hazard Wilson Success.
      Prefer mine as I have Ings forward cover

  8. Man Chest Hair United
    • 4 Years

    Do we expect brooks to start most games still?

  9. zon
    • 4 Years
    13 days, 15 hours ago

    Morning lads, care to RMWCT?

    Fabianski 4.0
    Alonso Robbo Laporte Doherty WBA
    Sterling Sane Son Siggy Fraser
    Auba Arnie Success

    Kane just doesn't pass the eyetest, but if need be, there's and easy route for Kane by downgrading Son to Anderson.

    1. Hurry Can
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Looks good to me

    2. fenixri
      • 2 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Pretty good, is Son prone to rotation?

    3. Juhlers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Is it too boring to mention that a 4.0 keeper is unwise long term. What if Fabi is injured? 🙂

      Also, Success is not ideal with Christmas rotation IMHO

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        A 10% chance of a minus 4. Much bigger risks in this game than 4.0 goalie

      2. zon
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 10 hours ago

        Not worried about the keeper really. Success is a valid point and I'm aware of it, but I'll have 2 decent options on the bench ahead of him, so chance of a zero pointer quite small.

  10. Jamb0
    13 days, 15 hours ago

    a) Open heart surgery (-8)
    Hazard, Salah, Arnie, Aguero -> Sterling, Felipe Anderson, Kane, Auba

            Nice team.

            FWIW I've ditched Salah, and he'd be my cash-cow for loading up on the fixture swing players.

    Was all set for for Laca on my WC

    Is Auba's form looking too good to ignore now?

    The extra money for him comes from the Sterling Sane budget, or going rather cheap in defence

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      I was considering to bring Laca but Auba's form actually looks too good to be ignored

      auba clearly not to be ignored but not completely put off by laca just yet.I was 90-10 laca before the weekend matches now its 50-50 so need midweek will be the clincher

  13. Burger

    Thoughts on this WC? Trying to get as much bench coverage as possible.

    Fab
    Robertson, Alonso, TAA
    Sane, Sterling, Richarlison, Son
    Laca, Arnie, Wilson

    Subs: Hamer, Trippier, AWB, Anderson

    1. Hurry Can

    2. fenixri

      Awesome except Laca instead Auba, but you invested that money pretty well in strong defence.

      I'm avoiding Liverpool altogether on my GW16 WC team.

      This is their trickiest spell of the year, and the ticker has them bottom in defence for 6 games from GW16

      Of course, their defence is capabale of shutting anyone but MCY out, but I think there are better options over the xmas period than them.

      1. Juhlers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        +1 on worries about Liverpool defense.

        I am also on WC, and personally I see more value in the attack than Chelsea/Liverpool defense over Christmas.

      2. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        better options like Spurs?

  14. Inazuma X1
    • 1 Year
    13 days, 15 hours ago

    Pedro as a 5th mid & potential Chelsea cover?

    (Have Alonso)

    1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠

      Too much roatation for me

    2. Hurry Can

    Best replacement for Hazard to free up cash for Aguero to Kane this week and future moves?

    A - Siggy

      1. Rinseboy
        • 6 Years

        thanks already got Sane. tempted by Siggy seems best value

  16. Inazuma X1
    • 1 Year

    Do you think it's worth getting Eriksen when Trippier is playing in the starting XI again?

  17. Tosa86

    My actual FPL team is:

    Fabianski - Hennesey
    LaPorte - Virgil - Van Bissaka - Alonso - Doherty
    Manè - salah - richarlison - Fraser - Billing
    Aguero - Arnautovic - Zaha.

    ItB: 0.2

      Bournemouth have some rough fixtures coming up, so i dont know if i would transfer anyone in. But then again i do own both and will not get rid.

      Jimenez is also an option, maybe cpnsider Jimenez+Kane for Aguero+Zaha?

        Interesting point of view...
        so you keep the couple mane-salah...

          Mane and Salah should be good for Burnley, Im looking at getting rid of either Hazard or Salah next week. Salah is just not delivering enough for 13 mil. Im looking at Mane as an option actually. Looked dangerous last game. But City mids seems like the way to go, city are so explosive.

          So either getting both sterling and sane, or sterling/sane and mane.

          The reason i got Kane is his fixures and also need sure starters over the christmas period. Aguero is injured and might not be back tomorrow. But maybe we will get some news today 🙂

            it's very difficult to cut salah...but he not delivered for 13mil.
            i can cut:

            salah-mane- kun --> sterling, sane, kane. (-4) 0.7 ItB.

            but with GW in midweek i have a little fear to keep city players.

              Im staying away from City mids the gameweek to see who is rested/ or not. Then make a decision on who get. I dont like the idea of getting rid of Salah either, but there are good cheaper options atm.

              Salah and Mane can outscore Sane and Sterling this week.

              Also take a look at Spurs mids, decent fixtures, and back in action.

    GTG? 1FT 0.1itb

    Fabianski
    Alonso Robertson WB
    Salah Hazard Richarlison Fraser
    Kane Wilson Arnie

    Boruc Obiang Doherty Bennett

    Did Kun->Kane in a straight swap last night. And think im gonna hold Salah/Hazard one more gameweek because i think they have bigger chance of starting compared to the city mids. Also i do fancy their fixtures.

      Gtg, similiar thinking as me.

    2. Hurry Can
      • 1 Year
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Good choice imo

      Thanks!

      No city could be absolute suicide.

    2 ft, wildcarding in a week 0.2 itb

    Fab
    VVD, Alonso, AWB, Dunk
    Haz, Salah, Rich, Fraser
    Aguero, Vardy
    (Speroni, Diagana, Jimenez, Doherty)

    Any suggested changes for 1 week punts? Thinking
    A) Haz to Silva or Mahrez and Aguero to Kane
    B) Jimenez to 4 mil striker and Aguero to Kane

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      why not Haz > Sane and Aguero to Kane?

      1. frenchfries
        • 2 Years
        13 days, 15 hours ago

        Im gonna guess he wants a sure starter

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      13 days, 15 hours ago

      I like A for your punt - Mahrez could be a brilliant idea but at least Silva is almost bound to play.

    Thoughts on this WC team for next GW (could just do it now, but have Salah/Sane for this week)

    Flappy Hamer
    Robbo Laporte* TAA AWB Chambers
    Sterling Son Richarlison* Fraser Cairney*
    Kane Auba Jiminez

    *Laporte could be Trippier
    *Richarlison/Cairney could be FAnderson/4.5

    1. maratus
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 14 hours ago

      I would try to upgrade Son to Eriksen/Alli somehow.

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 14 hours ago

        Could, by rejigging some defenders

        1. bigbudgie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 14 hours ago

          Or just keep Richarlison and go David Silva

  21. edinson

    hennesey
    alonso,TAA,Laporte
    Hazard,Mane,Richarlison,D.Silva,Stering
    Mitrovic, Arnautovic

    Hamer,Success,AWB, Peltier

    Give me some suggestion to transfer please!

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      13 days, 15 hours ago

      Mane is possibly injured
      Mane > Alli/Eriksen/Son

    Hazard is a wonderful player. World class and Supremely gifted.

    As a fantasy option he's so frustrating to own. If Chelsea had a proper striker who could bag 20+ goals he would be essential and offer great value.

    3 seasons of a a row I've been through this!

    1. Tsparkes10
      13 days, 14 hours ago

      Yup... ive kept personally but probs last chance on wed if i put him in my wc team or not. Hes so good to watch but can't carry in the prem.

      Looks better when giroud plays and obvs takes pens but idk... difficult one

  23. Captain Warlock

    Thought on this team should Doherty be last on bench ??
    Fab
    Alonso Taa Wanb
    Sterling Sané Rich Anderson Brooks
    Kane(C) Aubameyang
    Subs Hamer Jiménez Schindler Doherty

    Patricio Fab
    Digne Alonso Robbo Doherty WanB

    Wait for news on Ings but am I too top heavy forwards?

  25. dbeck

    Is she G2g?

    Fab
    Robbo Alonso Digne
    Fanderson sane sterling Richarlison
    Kane Wilson Arnie

    Button Doherty mctominay bennet.1.7itb

    Or does bennet to TAA for a hit sound tempting?

  26. Atimis
    • 2 Years
    13 days, 5 hours ago

    Hazard Kun to:

    1) Auba Eriksen
    2) Kane Mane

    Or just Kun to Auba? Not sure about Kane tbh

  27. Keeneddie79
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    13 days, 3 hours ago

    Chances of an Alonso rest on Wednesday leading into Man City?

    If you think they are high, is moving him for a few weeks sensible to free up cash for the front with someone like Balbuena?

    Modric??
