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′).

          Sterling

              Why hold? I have 2FT and he isn’t near justifying his money recently

            3 months, 23 days ago

            sterling out for hazard.
            alonso for shaw if you feel punty if not just go with some playing cheapies. there a couple now.

          • bench boost for every gamew…
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Sané at 9.6 and with current situation in City i would prefer, and it is also a much easier swap to Hazard from Sterling. Alonso out seems logical but this also must be to upgrade somewhere else, i was too late on the train and decided to go for Luiz in GW4, but Chelsea keeps giving away goals so might look elsewhere for value. I guess you have AWB in the mix too, in that case a cheapo like Bednarek or Diop or Lindeløf could be worth a shout depending on how much you are willing to downgrade.

        5. thedarkhorse
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          which two to play this gameweek?

          c) Ings (man city home)
          d) kamara (huddersfield home)

        6. cigan
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Laporte > Digne done

            got another FT left

            A) Sane > Hazard (no other City cover)
            B) Shaqiri/F. Anderson > Pogba
            C) Ryan > Button
            D) Alonso > Bednarek
            E) Lacazette > Jimenez
            F) Save

            1. cigan
                3 months, 23 days ago

                my other keeper is Patricio so another option is Ryan > Fabianski or Alisson (got enough ITB to do it)

              • fattfattygavgav

                • 2 Years

                B. Shaq to pogba
                Or
                F. Save

                1. cigan
                    3 months, 23 days ago

                    Shaq has been quietly doing really well for me - 5 goals and 1 full rest (= Hojbjerg 4-pointer) in 8 gws since I bought him
                    Leaning towards Ryan > Fabianski as I don't want to play Patricio against Spurs

                    1. fattfattygavgav
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 23 days ago

                      Do that then.

                    2. Blame it on Traore
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 23 days ago

                      Ryan to Fabianski sounds good to me

                      1. cigan
                          3 months, 23 days ago

                      Morning

                      If anyone can clarify, be grateful,but I just Emailed FPL towers about this to, but will probably get quicker response here, so.

                      I just watched MOTD and heard the commentary say "Lindelof flick on. Matic scores" I look uup to watch replay, ball comes off post, then into Matic path.

                      I read rules, now did ball hit a Huddersfield player prior to rebounding off post or after? If it DIDN'T hit a player, then it (according to rules) should be Lindelof assist

                        Good for you. I didn’t see the game but some of my FPL friends are scratching their heads wondering why an assist wasn’t given.

                          Ah so I could be right, thanks. Yes, like I said emailed, but doubt anything will happen. I'm probably only person that owns him lol

                      Taking out Digne for Trippier feels painful this morning. Thought I was up on the deal last gw when they posted scores of 3 and - 1. Just couldn't see any clean sheets with the shear amount of away games for Everton.

                      Did Sterling to Pogba this week, one step at a time I guess.

                          Sold at 4.9. Team value about 105.7 so OK in that regard.

                          Yes that was the strategy, torn between Pogba, Siggy and Pererya in the midfield at the moment. too many inform mids to choose from.

                      On WC - team is nearly set, I just need to decide on defender strategy.

                      A. Robertson AWB Digne Doherty Bednarek (more flexibility with one premium defender)
                      B. TAA Luiz Lindelöf Doherty Bednarek (no Digne, but still quite solid)
                      C. Luiz Lindelöf Digne Doherty Bednarek (short term, get Pool defender after the next couple of GW)

                      1. Ozman
                        • 9 Years
                        3 months, 23 days ago

                        A for me, Chelsea and Man u prone to conceding goals lately. but tough fixtures for wolves and palace this week,

                        I'm on a wildcard at the minute too and looking at something similar to A but with Trent rather than Robbo. Can plough more money into midfield that way

                          my midfield is already packed with Salah Hazard Son Pogba Richarlison
                          weak front line with Kane Ings Kamara though

                      Gone from 42k to 155k in two gameweeks mainly due to City failures. Felt like giving up yesterday but a bit more positive today.

                          I jerked both out now for Salah and hazard in the last two game weeks.

                          Tough. Now feel I’m taking hits to chase which is even more damaging. Would you do the following:

                        Feel your pain. I've taken out Salah and Hazard over the last 6 game weeks, missed all the big recent captain hauls and now paying the price. Easily my worst ever season and been doing this for 15 years.

                        Too much tinkering is seriously detrimental in this game.

                          I think you're right about the tinkering ...my wife hardly touches her team and is now only 40 pts behind me in our mini league......we probably overthink it and should have more patience with the big players like Salah and Hazard who we know will eventually be two of the top scorers in the game.

                        Maybe just hold though, looks a decent team.

                        Lost my patience with Alonso, yes I know he came really close few times but in the end its the points I am after and he is simply not delivering.

                        No watch him haul in next few GW's.

                            I know but from most expensive defender in the game I would expect regular clean sheets and some attacking returns once in a while - getting neither from Alonso.

                            No points for hitting woodwork, and with Luiz as CB clean sheets are unlikely.

                              I’m in the same boat, but given I’ve held this long I feel it would be silly to sell now.

                              I’ll keep him for the next 3 and then get rid regardless

                              We had the same defence. 🙂

                              Robbo, Alonso, Doherty, AWB, Balb.

                              I've gone with Balb to Digne as my West Ham friend told me Balb is out for a month (may or may not be true).

                              Didn't fancy playing Robbo, Alonso replacement, Doherty (tot).

                        Martial -> Hazard for a hit? I'm already on -4, so this would be a -8

                          Anybody other than martial that can go?

                            Other mids are:
                            - Torreira (too cheap)
                            - Richa (playing BHA away, but good fixtures ahead and rested for previous GW)
                            - Pogba and Son (just bought them for a -4)

                              Not worth the -8, unless Hazard explodes 2 weeks in a row which looks tough. Son is a good short term punt before he goes out for Asia cup

                        Funny that the classic overthinking about rotation has backfired spectacularly.

                        Or was it the calm before this weekends storm?

                        If so, who is under threat? Surely no Liverpool/Arsenal assets.

                        Maybe City/Spurs/Chelsea?

                        Any better Midfield option to bring in than Deulofeu?

                          Pererya is your man I think. He's been terrific

                            agreed, also can look at Milivojivec, his on pens and free kicks or Snodgrass based on recent form and fixtures

                            Think I prefer Deulofeu over Pererya given he plays further forward and is cheaper

                              Absolutely fair enough. Especially if you can use the money well elsewhere

                            Not so sure about Schurrle and Kenedy. I'd be tempted to look at Delofeou / Pererya and Snodgrass in that price bracket. Maybe Stuart Armstrong too if you fancy a punt

                              both are good options, I think Anderson outscores Pogba in the next 2 GW though

                                Agreed. Could be a bit of a sideways move given that they're both very talented and both have the fixtures

                            Who to Captain?

                            A) Rashford (Currently my Captain, good underlying stats and playing a slightly weak Bournemouth side)
                            B) Vardy (Imo Cardiff are for the taking but worried about his points ceiling)
                            C) Jesus (Imo he'll start given Man City are playing Liverpool after Southampton)
                            D) Sane (Imo it's 50/50 he'll start against Southampton)
                            E) Hazard (Imo crystal Palace won't be an easy fixture)
                            F) Other

                            Current team:

                            GK: Lloris & Hart.
                            Def: Doherty, Jonny, WanB, TAA & Dunk. Mid: Sane, Eriksen, Hazard, Richarlison & Torreira
                            Fwd: Jesus, Vardy & Rashford

                              with no further ado
                              Hazard C
                              all your other options are either not secure of starts or reliable. Rashford and Vardy could be punt captains but Leicester enjoy playing vs team they can counter on and Rashford, as an owner i hope he starts but i´m not totally certain of that, and regardless of that is he really a good captain option?
                              Jesus is currently injured. If Pep say he is fit he is a dark horse in the captains shout but after two defeat and not playing at their peak how should one predict their starting line up? Liverpool up next but also 7 points behind creates a conundrum, Pep can´t afford to lose points but also have to be careful not to exhaust his players.
