Richarlison back on the wing as Wolves’ budget FPL assets deliver again

We continue our look back at Gameweek 15 with a recap of three matches held on Wednesday evening.

We’ve got all the goals, assists, injury news, Fantasy talking points and relevant manager quotes from the matches at Molineux, Goodison Park and Craven Cottage.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Raul Jimenez (£6.0m), Diogo Jota (£5.9m) | Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m),  Matt Doherty (£5.0m) | Eden Hazard (£11.0m)

Just as Bournemouth’s budget/mid-price assets are making it difficult to look elsewhere despite the downturn in their fixture difficulty, so too Wolves’ cut-price Fantasy options keep delivering in spite of some tricky matches.

Raul Jimenez (£6.0m) was on the scoresheet at Molineux on Wednesday evening and now has two goals and three assists since Wolves’ fixtures took a turn for the worse in Gameweek 11.

Matt Doherty (£5.0m), meanwhile, followed up his goal at Cardiff with an assist for Diogo Jota‘s (£5.9m) winner and registered as many penalty box touches as any other Wolves player last night.

Nuno Espirito Santo tweaked his formation from a 3-4-3 to a 3-4-1-2, with Jota playing alongside Jimenez up front and Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.3m) lining up behind the strike pair on his first ever Premier League start.

The decision looked like a savvy one when Gibbs-White teed up Jimenez for Wolves’ equaliser and it will be interesting to see if Santo sticks with both system and personnel going forward, with the 18-year-old midfielder available at such an attractive price in FPL.

Santo said of the teenage prospect:

He brought energy. He brought focus. He has a lot of things to improve on but together we are going to try and build something.

While Ruben Neves (£5.0m) will potentially return to the starting XI at Newcastle on Sunday after serving a one-match ban, it is unlikely the Portuguese midfielder would be deployed in such an advanced position and it would surely be Romain Saiss (£4.2m) who would make way upon his return.

Saiss had shifted from defence to central midfield last night to accommodate the excellent Ryan Bennett‘s (£4.2m) return at centre-back.

In truth, this was more of a backs-to-the-wall performance from Wolves than a free-flowing attacking display.

Jimenez nodded two half-chances over in the first half but apart from their two goals, the hosts didn’t force Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) into another save.

Chelsea dominated the possession and chances, though their goal came courtesy of a huge slice of luck – Ruben Loftus-Cheek‘s (£5.2m) effort taking a wicked deflection on its way past Rui Patricio (£4.6m).

Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has suffered almost a million FPL sales since Gameweek 11 but the Belgian looked a threat at Molineux, without being at his scintillating best.

Hazard had an excellent chance to open the scoring early on when firing straight at Patricio and hit a couple of rasping efforts over the Wolves’ goalkeeper’s crossbar.

No player on show had more efforts on goal or created more chances than Hazard, who picked up a slightly fortunate assist for Loftus-Cheek’s effort but who should have collected another attacking return when Willian (£7.4m) wasted the Belgian winger’s chipped through ball.

Willian and Alvaro Morata (£8.7m) failed to impress, while Marcos Alonso‘s (£7.1m) owners may be getting a little jittery after another unconvincing display from the Chelsea left-back.

As excellent an FPL option as the attack-minded defender undoubtedly is, the worry from a Fantasy manager’s point of view is that his all-round performances have been well below-par in recent weeks, with his defensive positioning (a long-held criticism of the player) and final ball lacking.

Maurizio Sarri is renowned for his loyalty in his players but a continuation of this woeful form will surely see Emerson (£5.2m) handed a start before too long – something Alonso’s owners can ill-afford given his price tag and the Christmas period looming.

All is not well with Chelsea in general at the moment, with Sarri expressing concern about his players’ response after being pegged back to 1-1:

I think that we played very well for 55 minutes. After the first goal, at 1-1, it was an accident because we were in full control of the match. We were suddenly another team, without the right distances, our football, I don’t know why.

I am really very worried, not for the result but for the fact we didn’t react to the first goal. We didn’t react at all, so I am really very worried for this.

Wolves XI (3-4-1-2): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Saiss, Vinagre; Gibbs-White (Costa 72’); Jimenez (Dendoncker 81’), Jota (Cavaleiro 88’).

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Kante (Kovacic 77’), Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek; Hazard, Morata (Giroud 65’), Willian (Pedro 65’).

Everton 1-1 Newcastle United

  • Goals: Richarlison (£7.1m) | Salomon Rondon (£5.7m)
  • Assists: None | Jacob Murphy (£4.8m)

Back on the left flank and back among the goals.

Richarlison (£7.1m) ended a three-match run without an attacking return at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening and looked more of a goal threat than he has done over the last month, drifting in from the wing and registering more shots against the Magpies than he had done in the previous three Premier League fixtures combined.

The Brazilian midfielder swept home a loose ball following a corner-kick to level the scores up on 37 minutes and could have added to his tally, seeing two close-range efforts excellently blocked by Fabian Schar (£4.6m) early on and then sending an effort wide after the interval.

No FPL midfielder recorded more attempts on goal than Richarlison in Gameweek 15.

The bad news for those Fantasy managers who are hoping that the former Watford player is now afforded an extended run in the team on the left wing is that Cenk Tosun (£6.6m), the striker brought into the side to allow Richarlison to move back to the flank, produced another ineffective display up top, wasting the best of the Toffees’ chances when prodding straight at Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) from point-blank range just before half-time.

Bernard (£5.9m) and Theo Walcott (£6.3m) were handed a rest last night and would perhaps seem poised to reclaim their places in Marco Silva’s starting XI next Monday, given that Tosun and Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) didn’t particularly convince in their stead.

That would, of course, mean a return to the striker’s role for Richarlison for the visit of his former employers.

Silva discussed his team selection after full-time:

Since the first day I was here, Lookman has shown me every time [in training] and when he has come in during games that he deserved the chance to start.

Not because Theo Walcott or Bernard weren’t performing well – but because we had a game just three days ago, a tough, intense match. I made three changes and could have made more, because I thought in the second half some of the players were more tired than normal.

Lookman performed like I expected. He had some good moments – some others not so good, like the team. Cenk was the same and he worked hard for the team.

Owners of Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) and Lucas Digne (£4.9m) endured a frustrating evening.

The Iceland midfielder was quiet for long stages of the game but should have emerged from this encounter with an attacking return, having looked poised to score from ten yards on 35 minutes only for a desperate lunge from the excellent Federico Fernandez (£4.4m) to deflect his goalbound shot wide.

Sigurdsson’s luck was out when a couple of deflections deprived him of an assist for Richarlison’s goal and his evening was summed up when he was hooked with 20 minutes to go, despite Everton chasing a winner.

Three days after Digne was deprived of a nine-point haul by a late Liverpool goal, the French left-back’s luck was again out as he saw Tosun and Sigurdsson waste those aforementioned “big chances” – both of which were created by the former Barcelona defender.

Digne also saw a deflected shot saved by Dubravka, one of only three Everton efforts that hit the target.

Digne’s Fantasy owners should at least be consoled by how dangerous the full-back looked going forward and a first attacking return since Gameweek 4 looks imminent based on his performances in recent weeks.

Andre Gomes (£5.4m) once again impressed in central midfield, though his classy contributions in the “double pivot” are unlikely to attract any Fantasy investment.

Newcastle produced a superb rearguard effort in gaining a point on Merseyside and it could be argued, having witnessed the capitulation against West Ham on Saturday, that they are more at ease playing on the back foot.

Benitez set his side up in a 5-4-1, with Jamaal Lascelles (£4.7m) back in central defence after an injury lay-off.

That Dubravka only had two saves to make said much about the performances of the defence in front of him, but the Slovakian goalkeeper oozed confidence in claiming a succession of crosses into the Magpies’ box.

Newcastle posed a threat on the counter-attack too and could have stolen all three points when Christian Atsu (£5.1m) twice fired straight at Jordan Pickford (£5.0m) when in excellent positions.

United’s goal indeed came from a breakaway, with Salomon Rondon (£5.7m) converting an excellent Jacob Murphy (£4.8m) cross.

Benitez praised the recalled Murphy and Atsu after the game:

It’s a pity because we have two or three situations with Atsu, one v one, that we didn’t find this final pass to make the difference. But, again, I will say that when you get a point against a good team, away from home, you have to be pleased.

Murphy and Atsu were really good because defending all the time and, after, attacking, you need the legs. The goal was a great counter-attack.

Fabian Schar (£4.6m) will be suspended for the visit of Wolves on Sunday after collecting his fifth yellow card in just six appearances.

Kenedy (£4.9m) missed out on Wednesday through injury, meanwhile.

Benitez said of the on-loan Chelsea midfielder:

He has a problem with his toe. He couldn’t put his boots on and he couldn’t train in the last couple of days.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1) Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Zouma, Digne; Gueye, Gomes; Lookman (Calvert-Lewin 78′), Sigurdsson (Walcott 69′), Richarlison; Tosun (Bernard 69′).

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1) Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Fernandez, Manquillo; Atsu, Diame, Sung-yeung, Murphy (Perez 64′); Rondon (Joselu 74′).

Fulham 1-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Aboubakar Kamara (£4.3m) | James Maddison (£6.8m)
  • Assists: Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) | Shinji Okazaki (£5.2m)

Fantasy interest had largely cooled in James Maddison (£6.8m) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.6m) towards the beginning of November but the pair have showcased their mid-price credentials in recent Gameweeks and both players emerged from this draw at Craven Cottage with attacking returns.

Maddison swept home a Shinji Okazaki (£5.2m) pass to level the scores up at 1-1 on 73 minutes and was Leicester’s main goal threat in the absence of the injured Jamie Vardy (£8.9m), registering more shots on goal and key passes than any of his team-mates.

The former Norwich City midfielder also supplied Leicester’s only “big chance”, which the ineffective Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) spurned when clean through on goal.

While Maddison’s form has picked up, Leicester’s fixtures are about to get much tougher (three meetings with “big six” sides over the next four Gameweeks) and interest in the attacking midfielder would seem likely to remain cool for the time being.

Fulham, however, enjoy a fantastic run from Gameweeks 17 to 20 and Mitrovic surely enters the mid-price forward equation at this point, particularly given how secure his place looks in Claudio Ranieri’s starting XI.

The Serbian striker held the ball up admirably and linked well with the players around him, setting Aboubakar Kamara (£4.3m) on his way for the budget forward’s first Premier League strike.

No player had more efforts on goal than Mitrovic in this match, with one header creeping just wide and a goalbound strike being deflected off-target late in the game.

The Serbia international still sits on four yellow cards, however, and the possibility of him being cautioned again in the coming weeks may deter some investment over the festive period.

One player who again caught the eye from an attacking point of view was Callum Chambers (£4.2m), who was once more deployed “out of position” in central midfield and who regularly got forward to support the Fulham attack.

Chambers had four attempts on goal, including a free header from a Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) corner and a well-hit strike that Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m) did brilliantly to tip away.

A clean sheet still eludes Fulham but there were some positive signs as Ranieri named the same back four for the third game in a row.

The Cottagers’ boss said of his backline:

I think the more times they play together, the movement will be together. I want to see one man, at the moment they are four men but I want to see only one man and slowly, slowly they understand my vision.

Injuries to Vardy and Johnny Evans (£4.8m) forced Claude Puel into making two of four changes to his starting XI, with Caglar Soyuncu (£4.9m) a little shaky on a rare start at centre-half.

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Sergio Rico; Christie (Ream 84′), Odoi, Mawson, Le Marchand (Bryan 77); Chambers, Seri; Kamara, Vietto (Cairney 45), Ryan Sessegnon; Mitrovic.

Leicester City XI (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel; Simpson (Okazaki 72′), Morgan, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Mendy (Iborra 72′), Ndidi; Diabate (Gray 55′), Maddison, Albrighton; Iheanacho.

    Thinking of bringing Hazard in after Man City..so the only time he has blanked playing the 90 minutes is against West Ham (0-0), Man Utd (2-2) and Everton (0-0). Remarkable consistency this season

    1. Ha.
      • 4 Years

      ... and Tottenham.

      I'm pretty sure Sane has an attacking return in every game he's started.

        Or another way of looking at it... Hazard's blanked in 3 of his last 5 starts and has 16 points over that time. Better options available in my opinion.

        • 10 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        May just keep Trippier and downgrade Robbo to TAA.

        Doherty is definitely coming into my team, AWB and possibly Digne as well.

        Will allow me to get a decent MF with Sterling in.

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I think so. I went with TAA, Digne, Doherty, Balbuena and AWB on my WC last week.

  5. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    Good enough for next week ??

    Hart
    Robbo/Alonso/Doherty
    Hazard/Sterling/DSilva/FAnderson/Martial*
    Auba(c)/Jimenez

    Ryan/Balbuena/WB/Kamara

    1. yakirh
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      2 City 2 Chelsea is not ideal
      Maybe go Balbuena instead of Alonso

      1. Atimis
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Could be good

  6. pressdpm

      1. pressdpm
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        I like Anderson, it'd mean I'd have triple West Ham though (Fabianski)

        1. Brooksy86
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 days ago

          Not a bad thing...

    2. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      B although I love Fraser as an option

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

    Made a mistake this week and it cost me dearly.

    Also doing nothing last few weeks has cost me dearly.

    Nxt week I plan a - 8 (took no hits yet)

    I have 0.3 to spare between then and now to get who I want. Drastic times need drastic measures I think.

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Iv been patient and its backfired the last few weeks. Id say take the hit one week and get your team in shape.

    2. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      That'll cost you dearly

    3. diesel001
      • 3 Years

    • 6 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    My decision to wild card this week pretty much relies on whether I think Sterling will do well or not against Chelsea.
    Would you wc this week?
    Ederson
    Coleman Robbo Doherty Wan Dunk
    Sane Salah Rich Maddison Ward
    Arnie Kane Wilson

    1. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Probably wait

    2. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      No.

      Arnie > Lacazette
      Salah > Sterling

      Team is good enough.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Really considering that. For a hit though.

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 8 days ago

          A hit isn’t always a bad thing. Sets your team up nicely

    3. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Wait a week. Just do Arnie to a 1 week punt.

      Then u can drop salah on the wildcard and load up on man city. Leicesters fixtures get trash too

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 8 days ago

        So much this. Don’t take hit to get rid of Salah/ get sterling this week

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Thanks bud. It’s all pointing to saving. Just Auba is so tempting.

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      No. Get rid of Arnie and bench Ward, AWB and Dunk.

    5. Typo
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      If it involves losing Salah I would wait one week.

      Use FT to punt one week Arnie to Chicha or Mitro. then WC

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Really solid advice. Thanks.

      2. The UnderFKtaker
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Also Rashford to be considered. Risky but if u after a one week punt....at home to fulham who cant keep clean sheets...looked sharp vs arsenal....sanchez and possibly martial out injured...at 6.7 hes worth considering if u going 1 week punt.

  11. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    May I get some help on 2 questions:
    1) Arnie-> Jimenez , Chicha, Wilson or Mitro? (Have fraser and not keen to double up on Bournemonth now)

    2) play Fraser or Camarasa? With Camarasa-if not playing against Southmapton at home, then when?

    Team is:
    Fab 
    Taa Digne trippier (awb Schindler)
    Sterling sane Felipe fraser/camarasa
    Auba Kane Arnie

    Patricio.
    Robertson, Alonso, Laporte.
    Sane, Sterling, Felipe, Rich.
    Arnie, Mitro, Kane.
    Foster, Doherty, AWB, CHO.
    1ft, 0.0m ITB

    1. Arnie -> Wilson/Jimenez.

    Fab, Hamer.
    TAA, Doherty, Kola, Cedric, AWB.
    Rich, Sane, Sterling, Felipe, Camarasa.
    Auba, Kane, Mitro.
    Not too much time left to WC so maybe now is the right time.

    Which Chelsea player should I downgrade?
    A. Haz to FilipeA
    B. Alonso to Balbuena
    Felipe looks a great option but Alonso looks on the verge of being dropped.
    Help!!

      B for sure

    So: Kamara - did he get the start due to Schurrle being unfit, or is he forcing his way into the team ??

    1. Anathallo
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Who knows? He's looking a decent option but I don't think we can say he's nailed yet.

  21. yakirh

    Who to captain this GW?
    A. Lacazette
    B. Richarlison
    C. Sterling
    D. Kane

    1. blauriecon
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Kane

      1. yakirh
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Away to Leicester that kept 2 clean sheets in their last 2 home games, when Spurs have big game 3 days away

        Not sure about that..

    2. SpagBol
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I'm with Laca

      1. yakirh
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Tell me more

        1. SpagBol
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 8 days ago

          I feel like after a few matches off the bench, it's his time for him to start and against a struggling Huddersfield, I reckon he can cause lots of troubles for them. Plus he's on penalties.

    3. Pierce34
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      I have all those and going with Lacazette, albeit with a few concerns about his minutes (I was sure he was just being eased back after his groin strain, but after being benched vs. United I'm not so sure any more).

    4. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      of that list id pick A 100%

  22. Lord Flashheart

    2. yakirh
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Sounds good
      I did Robbo and Arnie to Bellerin and Laca myself

  23. Poison Apple

    Alonso robbo balb (schindler wanB)
    Sterling son snodgrass paterson (hogg)
    Kane auba laca

    A. Downgrade alonso
    B. Downgrade roboo
    C. Downgrade sterling to sane
    D. Downgrade son

    Not considering laca or auba downgrade unless they r injured in the face of the upcoming 3 games.

    Been offered Lingard for RLC in a draft league guys. Would you keep RLC or trade?

    1. Typo
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Keep. Wasnt Lingards last goal in february?

      1. FortunesAlwaysHiding
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 8 days ago

        Yesterday! I see your point though

    2. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Think Lingard will play more than RLC

  25. Wag the Drog
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    a) hazard, wilson -> fraser, auba (-4)
    b) hazard,masuaku->felipe, son (no hit)

    if i go with a i'll have masuaku during the busy period.

  26. vuleeeee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who to bench?

    Patricio / Stek
    Laporte / Robertson / Digne / Doherty / Kolasinac
    Salah / Sterling / Sane / Rich / Kenedy
    Auba / Wilson / Kamara

    Kenedy, Kamara and? Laporte?

    1. SpagBol
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Kamara, Kenedy and Wilson

  27. SpagBol
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 8 days ago

    I have the exact funds to do:

    Arnie >> Chicharito and Gudmundsson >> Sterling (for a -8 point hit)

    Do I go ahead with this? I'm afraid price rises and drops will happen and I won't be able to do this next week...

      -8 is a bit steep but you should cover that and more by the end of the month.

        Cheers TM 🙂

        Just a quick one, you're from Australia right?

    2. Jamb0
      • 1 Year

      You will cover it quickly, I would probably bite the bullet and just do it

    Hennessey
    AWB Alonso Doherty
    Martial* Salah Sane Richarlison

    C) Arnie Martial ➡ Sterling Kamara -4
    D) Arnie Martial ➡ Auba 4.4m -4

    What are you guys thinking about Rashford as a potential punt?

    1. ShaymenTID
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Would consider some assets for GW's 19 & 20. Probably Rashford or Lingard.

    Who do you think will do better short term, Fanderson or Martial?

    1. Pierce34
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 8 days ago

      Short term has to be Anderson, if we take Martial's niggle into account. Apparently he's fine but that doesn't fill me with confidence with such a short turnaround.
