Mitrovic catches the eye as Wolves’ popular Fantasy assets blank

Gameweek 19 got off to a disappointing start for those Fantasy managers who had high hopes for Fulham and Wolves’ most-owned assets, who all emerged from this Boxing Day encounter in west London with nothing but appearance points.

It was a case of what might have been though, as the two mid-price forwards on show – Aleksandar Mitrovic and Raul Jimenez – peppered the opposition goal with a combined 14 shots without success.

FPL bosses hoping for a rare Wolves clean sheet were also left underwhelmed as Rui Patricio‘s goal was breached for the tenth match in the last 11 Gameweeks, just at the point where Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops had got on top of their hosts.

We’ll round up the key Fantasy talking points and manager quotes from the first of nine Premier League matches held on Wednesday.

Fulham 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) | Romain Saiss (£4.2m)
  • Assists: None

The 17.9% of FPL managers who own Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.7m) will have left been left scratching their heads as to how the Serbian striker posted a blank for the eighth time in ten Gameweeks, especially after his commanding display in the first half of this Boxing Day encounter.

Fulham were unquestionably the better team for the opening 45 minutes of this 1-1 draw and Mitrovic was central to everything the Cottagers did, linking up well with Andre Schurrle (£5.7m) and the impressive Aboubakar Kamara (£4.4m) in a fluid Fulham front three and dominating the trio of centre-backs around him.

Mitrovic had registered eight shots on goal in the last three Gameweeks and he almost matched that total in the first half of this Gameweek 19 curtain-raiser alone, chancing his arm on seven occasions and coming within inches of connecting with a Cyrus Christie (£4.2m) cross-shot on the half-hour mark.

The eclectic nature of Mitrovic’s chances underscores the Serbia international’s appeal when he is on-song; there are few FPL forwards who can score (or miss, as has become the case) from as many areas of the pitch as the ex-Newcastle United target man.

Never afraid to chance his arm from distance (two of his shots came from 25+ yards out), Mitrovic also dominated in the air and had a pair of headed opportunities in his eye-catching performance in the opening period.

The best of the Serb’s opportunities, however, fell at his feet when in the Wolves area. Producing some beautiful footwork on 40 minutes, Mitrovic sold two Wolves defenders with a feint and a shimmy before being denied by a point-blank Rui Patricio (£4.6m) save.

Mitrovic and his side were much quieter after the break but the Serbia international was to come within a whisker of a first Premier League goal since November when his deflected effort was cleared off the line by a backtracking Conor Coady (£4.5m) in the 89th minute.

It is difficult to make any kind of case for an FPL forward with two goals in his last 13 starts but Mitrovic could easily have a hat-trick here, being denied either by profligate finishing of his own, excellent defending or sheer bad luck.

The Serb at least avoided a caution in this match, meaning he can no longer pick up a one-match ban for collecting five yellow cards (the threshold raises to ten bookings after Gameweek 19).

Raul Jimenez (£6.2m) was not quite as prominent as Mitrovic in this fixture but posed Wolves’ only real threat for much of the match, firing a bicycle kick over after some superb control on his chest and connecting beautifully with a volley from a narrow angle that Sergio Rico (£4.4m) had to push away.

The Mexican striker also got on the end of two crosses from the left flank after the break without troubling the Fulham goal, going on to register six shots in total over the 90 minutes.

Wolves were well below-par before the break, with Santo hooking Adama Traore (£5.2m) at the interval in a change that he explained after full-time:

The left side was not working out, so we had to change and look for solutions. The team clearly needed more width to allow them to open the spaces inside.

We had to find solutions and I think we did better with the width on both sides with the wingers, Helder and Cav, and the team played well.

Santo also hinted at changes in Gameweek 20, with Wolves again in action on Saturday:

What we expect every time we choose the team or make a decision is that the team performs well. It doesn’t mean your place in the starting 11 is guaranteed. We have to look, now we have to rest, and prepare for the next game because it’s going to be very tough.

For sure we require another approach, in terms of what we decide, because this schedule is very tight. It’s a tough schedule, it’s very difficult for the players. Three days between games is very hard, especially with this kind of intensity, so we have to rest well.

One player who could be involved against Spurs at the weekend is Diogo Jota (£5.9m), who again missed out with a hamstring injury.

Santo said of the Portuguese midfielder:

Diogo is much better. First, he has to train 100 per cent.

Wolves were far from convincing at the back, meanwhile.

The days of a defensive double-up appear long gone and we are largely relying on attacking returns from Matt Doherty (£5.2m) et al at the moment, such has been their aversion to clean sheets in recent times.

Doherty was a considerable distance from his best in this encounter but still popped up with three penalty box touches and a shot on goal, while Jonny (£4.3m) came into the game gradually after the break on the opposite flank without seriously threatening an attacking return.

After 17 Gameweeks without a clean sheet, Fulham came within five minutes of consecutive shut-outs before Romain Saiss’s (£4.2m) scrambled winner.

Claudio Ranieri lined up in a 3-4-3 for the second successive match, only making one change, and this appears to be a formation he is keen on using going forward.

The Fulham boss said:

I think they’ve improved a lot. I think I’ve found a solution for this team with five at the back.

Of course, it’s not dogmatic. The team is much better, more solid, and more comfortable.

Of course, we need something more when we have the ball because when you’re bottom, it’s not so calm, you’re a little more anxious to do something good.

We have to continue this way. It’s the right way. It’s the second time we played in this shape and I’m very happy for this reason.

The fit-again Ryan Sessegnon (£6.2m) came off the bench to lash Fulham in front but Ranieri suggested the youngster still had much to do before he becomes a regular fixture in the first team:

I’m very pleased. He’s a very interesting young player. When he came on, the crowd and his teammates felt something could happen.

[But] he has to improve physically because when the opponents tackle, he has to be a little more powerful.

Fulham XI (3-4-3): Rico; Odoi, Mawson, Ream; Christie, Chambers, Seri (McDonald 82′), Bryan; Kamara (Cairney 73′), Mitrovic, Schurrle (Sessegnon 67′).

Wolves XI (3-4-1-2): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Saiss, Jonny (Vinagre 82′); Gibbs-White (Costa 63′); Jimenez, Adama (Cavaleiro 45′).

    Mitro owners would be dirty...

    2FT's, what to do with this lot? Honestly short on good ideas... been sort of hovering last few gameweeks.

    Fabianski
    AWB, Robbo, David Luiz
    F.Anderson, Sane, Hazard, Rich
    Kane, Auba, Jiminez

    Patricio, Hojberg, Bednarek, Bennett.

      Not much wrong with that. Sane to Pogba could be an option.

    1. daveoafc77
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Would be prioritizing Hazard

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Not keen on him tbf never had him

        1. Subzero (-4)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 14 days ago

          Isn't he 2nd highest scorer in the game? Why David silva? City midfield is a minefield. At least hazard is chelseas main man and now there striker

          1. Ambrosiana Inter
            • 2 Years
            11 months, 14 days ago

            Mmm maybe I ll try to fit him in...is expensive though...feel like d silva will walk straight into city mid and boss games around again,and he d be a massive differential these days

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      I would never get Mitrovic on my WC.

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        I already have him, and not wanting to sell before Huddersfield

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Allison
      Taa
      Siggy
      Snoddy
      Martial/pogba
      Keep Vardy Bin Mitro for Ings.

    4. Subzero (-4)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Loose vardy mate. Plenty of better options at a much better price

      1. Ambrosiana Inter
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Good form and very good fixtures...he ll bring in returns on each game I feel not all the cheapies do

    5. Burger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Didn't Vardy say he isn't able to string a couple of games together atm due to injury?

  4. marzo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    What would u do here?
    Thinking I need Salah before Hazard actually considering next game especially..

    1. Sterling + Sane + Mitro -> Salah + Haz + Kamara (-4, exact cash atm).
    2. Sterling -> Hazard and save the other FT.
    3. Other. (Maybe change Auba or Kane to fit in Salah).

    Fabianski.
    Kola, Doherty, Digne.
    Rich, Sane, Sterling, Felipe.
    Mitro, Kane, Auba.
    Hamer, AWB, Gibbs-White, Bednarek.
    2ft, 1.4m ITB.

      Hmm.. Really risky to go without City attackers in my opinion. You don't think they will bounce back?

      1. arndff_
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        They will but there're some good alternatives as well...

        Probably I'm going City-less too but gotta have a plan to bring back at least one of their assets in the near future.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 14 days ago

          This.
          Kane to Kun when he Start's firing is best option available IMO.

  5. Amey
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 14 days ago

    Hazard Essential 😛

    1. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Once every 2/3 weeks 🙂

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Twice every 3 gw's would be more appropriate 😉

        1. arndff_
          • 7 Years
          11 months, 14 days ago

          🙂

  6. SirT83
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Fabs Hamer
    Alonso Robbo Doherty Shaw WB
    Siggy Son Sane Martial Billing
    Auba Kane Chicarito

    0. 4 itb, 1FT

    I am getting a little worried over Alonso and Kane. Could of course swap both and free up some cash for my midfield next GW. Say Kane and Alonso for Aguero and any other defender worth around 6 or less. Would give me 2. 4 to spend on midfield next GW.
    Or do all the transfers this week and get a - 8, but then I would have Aguero, Hazard and say Holebas. Thoughts on which way to go with my team is needed. Please give ur 2 cents.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Save this gw.
      Then Alonso to Digne & Son to hazard after Cardiff game.

      1. SirT83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Thanks again Amey, I will look into the option presented.

    2. Jamb0
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Interested to hear why you're worried about Kane? Spurs have scored 11 in last two matches... sure Kane hasn't scored as many as expected but surely better than Aguero

      1. SirT83
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 14 days ago

        I'm worried due to eye test of a 12.4mill attacker against not so good opponent. Aguero has not been playing.

    If only I had balls to follow my own hunch week before last with Pogs:

    Final week for the first wildcard, who are the key players to be getting in right now? In my thinking:
    - Spurs, still worth it, or has that ship sailed?
    - Wolves defenders, they looked good early in the season, but haven't been so great recently fpl-wise. Would you go for them?
    - City, just a few weeks ago they looked essential, but defence hasn't kept a clean sheet for a long time, and attack is misfiring, and a minefield anyway. Just a blip?
    - The perennial question of this season, does Salah justify his price tag?
    - Man utd have a few nicely priced options if the Ole bounce continues. Who should be prioritized, or are they still too risky?
    - Hazard, have I just missed his hot streak?

  11. Fernando Torres
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    A) Sterling to Hazard for free?
    B) Robbo + Sterling ---> Salah + TAA (-4)

    1. arndff_
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      I'd say A... But it's a tricky one!

    2. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Robbo is untouchable

  12. MAVER!CK
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    8th straight red arrow in a row, 6 captain blanks along the way and the rest two got me 10 and 12. Anyone else doing worst than me here? you know, misery loves company and all that...

    1. tambourineman
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Currently on my 7th straight red arrow, my worst ever sequence in 4 years playing, finally got a decent captain return this week from Salah after six captain fails (4, 6, 8, 10, 4, 4) but still got another red. Using the second wildcard early is going to be tempting.

      1. MAVER!CK
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Man its hard to get out of this rut, I mean the squad ain't that bad it's the captain picks that swing the balance most of the time

    2. Farke4sure
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      7 red arrows for me - only had a handful of decent captain picks all season!

      Sold Son for Sané two Gameweeks ago - 34/4 points difference.

      Picked wrong keeper Foster/Fabianski three weeks running - 29/4 points difference.

      Never had a run like it - world ranking in top 100 at beginning of season.....

      1. MAVER!CK
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Top 100? Man that's rough, down from 2k to 50k here. I got sucked into City double and the Kane-Auba duo and always managed to pick the wrong captain.

  13. FPLGeezer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 14 days ago

    Lloris best route into Spurs defence as Ryan needs to go? Looking to get TAA in for Kolasinac for a Liverpool double up after City.

  14. pundit of punts
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    How does Aubameyang + Brooks ➡ Vardy + Martial for -4 sound? Gives me -

    Fabianski
    Alonso - Trippier - TAA
    Sterling - Son - Anderson - Martial
    Kane - Vardy - Mitrovic

    Hamer - AWB - Bennett - Schneiderlin

    Plan going forward -

    GW 21 - Sterling ➡ Hazard
    GW 22 - Anderson ➡ Richarliosn
    GW 23 - Vardy + Son ➡ Salah + Ings for -4

    Thoughts please? ☺️

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…

      i'd be cautious about Martial. OGS says Alexis back in contention and the leftside is his position

    I’m pondering a couple of options over the next 2/3 game weeks as I’ve 2 FT:

    1) Anderson and Lacazette to Hazard and Jiménez- this move would need to be done imminently as any price change would scupper it

    2) Lacazette to Ings this week (vs Newcastle) and then Sane to Hazard next week, alongside potential to upgrade Success to Jimenez for a hit or on 2 weeks time - decent headroom for this that would allow funds invested elsewhere at a later date

    3) Lacazette to Rashford this week, and then Sane to Hazard and Success to Ings in 2 weeks time - bit nervous about Rashford being a flash in the pan and Lukaku coming back in, but then again, he’s playing Bournemouth...also only 0.2m headroom on this so price changes may destroy it.

    Any thoughts at all?

      2 looks better.

    Any chance FAnderson or Ings being rested today?

    I have Digne as first sub 🙁

    1. andre_c
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      They should play. Feels bad you have Digne on bench

    2. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)

      Warm up injury for Ings is not out of the question 🙂

    Any transfer suggestions?

    Fabianski Hamer
    Schindler, David Luiz, AWB, Kolasinac, Doherty
    Sane, Hazard, Son, Snoddy, Richarlison
    Kane, Lacazette, Wilson

      Free up some cash - Laca > Ings/Jimenez

      Kola > Digne. Arsenal are poor defensively.

        ok thanks

    Martial likely to recover for the next game?
    Worried we might not get news - but I'll keep back some pogba upgrade cash just in case.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      I am keeping him & C him if any news comes about him in press.
      I can't shift him out though.
      If you have a FT you can but after press IMO.
      He'll start IMO.

      1. Whats the Huth

        Thought you had hazard captain

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

          It's about next gw.
          Hazard was for this gw

    Is taking out Sterling before Southampton really a good idea? He has a brilliant record against them , did get his 21 point haul against them in the reverse fixture. I feel like I really want Hazard but is this really the week to do it ?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      It really the week to do it

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Should’ve done it two weeks ago. I wish I did

        1. farmerfat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 14 days ago

          In b4 Sterling 20 point haul vs Southampton

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years
            11 months, 14 days ago

            He probably starts on bench again.

            In b4 Sterling 20 min cameo from the bench

  26. Tosa86
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    In my FPL league i am in 2nd place after this GW i have 9 points from 1st and 4 over the 3rd.

    my actual team is:

    My FPL team:

    Fabianski
    VVD - Alonso - WanBissaka
    Salah - fraser - richarlison - sanè
    wings - auba - rashford

    Hennessy - laporte - doherty - billing.

    FT:1
    ItB: 1.9

    Make sense to do a massive changes for -12/-16?
    or is it better that a conservative strategy until WC with only change? (maybe sane for pogba or hazard?)

  27. juho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Fellow Sane + Sterling owners (without Salah and Haz), what's your plan?

    I'm tempted to play the 2nd wildcard soon at the expense of its "optimal" use prior to the DGWs.

    I suppose it really depends on whether we think this Man City slump is merely temporary.

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Contemplating doing Sterling to Haz but I'm nervous Sterling hauls again Southampton

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        I have a feeling Haz will be rested pretty soon

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      I dunno. City not used to losing. Two games in a row is a shock. Not sure if they’ll come toting back. Saints are on the up now

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        Indeed, Soton has shown signs of improvement under the new manager

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Keep WC. Bin them gw by gw IMO.

    4. MAVER!CK
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Fernandinho's absence affecting them I guess. I did Sane>>Pogba, should have been sterling as he's much more of a rotation risk that Sane atm. Sticking with Sterling this week and will swap him for Haz next gw.

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 14 days ago

        I kneejerked Sterling out for Pogba, with a view of bringing in Salah in GW22

  28. Tsssst
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 14 days ago

    Any Auba owners looking to shift him out yet?

    If so, who for? Could be the only way to get Salah in myself

    1. MAVER!CK
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Personally not looking to get rid as he's consistently returning. But if you are, you can go Ings or Rashford

    2. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Not just yet, but Arsenal's attacking play has been rather disappointing of late

    3. Howlitzer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 14 days ago

      Looking to stay with him and potential use Son for spurs cover until he heads off to the Asia Cup. Then, depending on form, replace with Kane or Aguero and downgrade Son.

  29. Stimps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Sterling, Ryan -> Hazard, Fab (-4)?
