The latest on the Chelsea injury situation as Hazard gets an extended run-out

Our summary of the weekend’s FA Cup matches continues with a closer look at three ties contested on Saturday afternoon.

As usual we’ll be rounding up the main Fantasy talking points, manager quotes and injury updates concerning the Premier League sides involved.

Chelsea 2-0 Nottingham Forest

Eden Hazard (£11.1m) was handed more minutes than perhaps anticipated in this FA Cup third round victory for Chelsea, with the Belgian introduced as a 42nd-minute substitute after Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m) suffered a recurrence of his back injury.

It was a relatively quiet afternoon for Hazard, who had only one (blocked) attempt on goal but who nevertheless teed up another five chances for his team-mates in the second half.

The Belgium international also played the last 15 minutes of this match as a central striker, though understandably appeared to be conserving his energy for more important matches ahead.

Assistant coach Carlo Cudicini gave an update on Loftus-Cheek, who had been deployed on the right wing for this tie, after full-time:

We are very sorry for the kid to be honest. His impact on the games he played so far has been very good. Even today I feel he was contributing very much so it’s a pity.

It’s something that is affecting him and something we need to look at resolving. Obviously, it’s been going on for a while and now he will probably have to stop for a bit to try to resolve it.

The star of the show in west London was Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m), who has been recently linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Hudson-Odoi began brightly on the left flank before being switched to the opposite wing on Hazard’s introduction, delivering two fantastic crosses for Alvaro Morata (£8.4m) to convert after the interval.

Cudicini said of the youngster:

He did very well, it was a very good performance, as we say in Monaco, a “360 performance”. Two assists and he worked very hard defensively. Even when we had a few problems in midfield with Ampadu, he was running for two.

His commitment was great and you want him to have performances like that so he can put some doubts in Maurizio’s mind and be in contention for a place.

It was another rollercoaster afternoon for Morata, who spurned an excellent headed opportunity in the first half and who missed an absolute sitter when flagged offside just after the break.

The Spanish striker was at least back on the scoresheet for the first time since November with two tidy finishes (one a header) from pinpoint Hudson-Odoi deliveries.

Cudicini said of the much-maligned forward:

I think Alvaro played an important part in today’s performance, he was very good in terms of working for the team, offensively but mainly defensively.

It was very important for him to score two goals, which can only be good for his confidence. We are all pleased with his performance but we were even when he didn’t score in previous games so hopefully, it will be good for his morale that he scored, and hopefully he will be more free in his mind.

Gianfranco Zola mentioned in the press conference before the match that for a striker it’s difficult when you go through a spell when you don’t score many goals, so his body language was a bit down, but in training he’s working very hard and we all knew that sooner or later he would be able to turn the corner and start scoring goals. Thankfully he did it today, it was very important because we really care about this competition and we want to do well.

He’s a great striker, he has great qualities and now his confidence is back I’m sure he will keep on scoring goals for us.

Willian (£7.2m), Olivier Giroud (£7.7m) and Pedro (£6.3m) missed out on this match through injury, with Maurizio Sarri making eight changes to his side following the 0-0 draw with Southampton in midweek: only Morata, Ross Barkley (£5.3m) and David Luiz (£5.9m) keeping their places.

Marcos Alonso (£6.8m) was one of the eight players handed a breather, with Emerson Palmieri (£5.2m) producing an Alonso-esque performance in his stead: decent going forward, suspect at the back.

Cesc Fabregas (£6.2m) missed a first-half penalty in what could have very well been his farewell appearance in a Chelsea shirt, with the former Barcelona midfielder seemingly set for a move to Monaco.

Fabregas was substituted with a knock late on, meanwhile.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Caballero; Zappacosta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson; Ampadu, Fabregas (Kante 85′), Barkley; Loftus-Cheek (Hazard 42′), Morata (Azpilicueta 75′), Hudson-Odoi.

Everton 2-1 Lincoln City

Richarlison (£6.9m) had an eventful ten-minute cameo as Everton edged past Lincoln City: the Brazilian curled a shot just wide, cleared a late Imps effort off the line and caught an elbow to his face after being introduced as an 80th-minute substitute for Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.3m).

It was a fairly unremarkable performance from the Icelandic midfielder, who was one of six Everton players to keep their place in Marco Silva’s starting XI following the New Year’s Day defeat to Leicester City.

Sigurdsson, who lined up in the hole in a 4-2-3-1, stung the hands of visiting goalkeeper Josh Vickers with one half-volley in the second half but didn’t particularly impress against League Two opposition.

Much of Everton’s good work came down the left flank, with Leighton Baines (£5.0m) and Bernard (£5.9m) being the Toffees’ two stand-out players.

Baines crossed for the fit-again Ademola Lookman (£5.1m) to nod the hosts in front before Bernard chipped in Everton’s second following neat build-up play from Sigurdsson and central striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.3m).

Calvert-Lewin, who missed a decent chance to extend Everton’s lead, was one of two players hooked at half-time, with Silva also sacrificing Tom Davies (£5.1m) for Cenk Tosun (£6.5m) and Andre Gomes (£5.4m).

Silva said:

In that moment, I felt we needed a player like Andre.

We completely controlled the game with the ball and were creating problems for them but when they score we started to have some doubts in our build-up and we needed Andre in that moment.

About the situation with Dominic, it was the moment for us to give Cenk the chance to show his quality.

Baines’ impressive performance at left-back may have slightly ruffled owners of Lucas Digne (£5.2m), who was handed a rest for this encounter, though consideration of course has to be given to the calibre of the Toffees’ opposition on Saturday afternoon.

It was another match without a clean sheet for Everton’s backline, with Lincoln defender Michael Bostwick halving the deficit just before the half-hour following a set-piece situation.

Lookman also caught the eye on the right flank and Silva was asked about the youngster’s prospects of starting in Gameweek 22. The Everton boss said:

You’ll have to wait and see next Sunday. He is important for us and will be more important for the future. I have no doubts about him, now he is ready to play if I take the decision.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Kenny, Mina, Zouma, Baines; Davies (Gomes 45′), Gueye; Lookman, Sigurdsson (Richarlison 80′), Bernard; Calvert-Lewin (Tosun 45′).

Derby County 2-2 Southampton

Southampton will have to contest a third-round replay in between Gameweeks 22 and 23 (games against Leicester City and Everton respectively) after spurning a two-goal lead at Pride Park on Saturday.

Nathan Redmond (£5.2m), who has two goals and as many assists to his name in his last five Premier League appearances, put the Saints 2-0 up with a brace of strikes, his second goal a fantastic, dipping effort from distance that left home goalkeeper Kelle Roos flatfooted.

Ralph Hasenhuttl made six changes to the side that drew 0-0 with Chelsea in Gameweek 21 and deployed a 4-2-2-2 formation – his favoured system during his tenure at RB Leipzig – for the first time.

Redmond and Mohamed Elyounoussi (£6.1m) – who wasted a great chance to win the game – were the two most advanced midfielders in this set-up, with Charlie Austin (£5.5m) and Shane Long (£4.7m) leading the line for the visitors.

Angus Gunn (£4.3m) once again lined up in goal, while Matt Targett (£4.2m) returned at left-back after his rest at Stamford Bridge.

Hasenhuttl was frustrated with the result and the subsequent replay that his new charges will now have to contest:

That’s a result we didn’t want to have. To play another game is not necessary today I think because for 60 minutes we were the better team and I felt the tactics were perfect.

After the break, the opponent tried long balls to get more chances but we didn’t give any away until the 60th minute. At 2-0, I think we were feeling too comfortable which is always dangerous in a cup match because the opponents will never give up. Then at 2-1, I felt we needed to push the tempo high again but we did it too late and you can see what happens.

In the last ten minutes, both teams tried to win the game and it was open with chances for both teams but we made it difficult for ourselves. If you start getting sloppy then it’s difficult to win, also against a Championship team. That’s what we have to learn.

We showed we are prepared with a new shape which is a positive thing to play the 4-2-2-2 for the first time but over 90 minutes we were not concentrated or sharp enough to take the win.

Danny Ings (£5.6m) and Stuart Armstrong (£5.1m) missed out on the draw, with Hasenhuttl providing an update on the injured pair:

We have a few injury problems with our forwards.

Danny Ings is injured for two weeks and that’s the reason he couldn’t play and Stuie Armstrong I gave a rest to and he couldn’t play as he has problem with his ankle also.

Austin and Long look to be Hasenhuttl’s go-to pair in the short-term, with Manolo Gabbiadini (£5.6m) seemingly set for a move away from St. Mary’s.

The Southampton boss said:

A few teams are interested in Manolo and we have a look and if there’s a result we tell you. Sure (there have been offers). We have to decide and he has to decide where he wants to go.

That Austin and Long were toothless in the Southampton attack underscored how disappointing the injury to Ings is, with the south coast club top of our Season Ticker for the next five Gameweeks and not offering too many other stand-out candidates for Fantasy investment.

Redmond and – if fit – Armstrong could perhaps prove to be savvy budget midfield options, however.

Southampton XI (4-2-2-2): Gunn; Cedric, Stephens, Vestergaard, Targett; Ward-Prowse, Slattery; Elyounoussi (Barnes 71′), Redmond; Long, Austin (Johnson 79).

      Ups the admin cost though for not much more money unless they are raising prices. If I were FFS I would put the full year membership cost up £10 and the half year £5.

        Despite not buying the membership this year, I'd charge more than that over the year. It's actually a heck of a lot of content/tools that membership gives you. Give the option of £3 per month of £20 for a year or something like that IMO

        Hmm could be good to get city cover in next GW - but losing Hazard vs Newcastle and Salah vs Brighton for 2 city players vs Wolves this GW doesn't do it for me

      It is almost Man City's second team though. Only the fact that they don't have a backup for Sane and Fernandinho causes an issue. Zinchenko is probably on borrowed time at the club.

      GK: Ederson, Bravo
      LB: Mendy, Delph
      RB: Walker, Danilo
      LCB: Laporte, Otamendi,
      RCB: Stones, Kompany
      DM: Fernandinho, ?????
      LCM: Silva, Gundogan
      RCM: KDB, Bernardo
      LM: Sane, ?????
      RM: Sterling, Mahrez
      FW: Aguero, Jesus

        Will keep eye on Aguero. He will be my next City target. Hoping Sané can get some of the City points until then. Not keen on losing Kane though

  13. EgyptianKing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Do you consider a Sane / Sterling double-up too risky for next GWs?

    Cheers

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Risky in what way? Game time?

      1. EgyptianKing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Mainly in terms of gametime, yes. I consider Sane should keep a decent gametime at least until Mendy gets back, but owing both Sane and Sterling may cause gametime issues each GW, no? It can be highly rewarding as well.

        What do you think?

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Just like what you said, it can be highly rewarding. It's no riskier than it has been up to this point.

    2. Bookkeeper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Why? because Sterling scored today?

      If Mane and Salah score tomorrow, will you want to double up with them too?

      1. EgyptianKing
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Actually I already own Sterling since October.

        The rationale is that:
        - City fixtures are good both short and medium term
        - Sane and Sterling highly involved in their attacking procedures
        - I can see City scoring many goals and highly motivated after the win over Liverpool

    3. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Many combos could do the bus. go gut. Not for me though

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      That combo served me well before Xmas, nothing risky about it providing City can find their lethal form back.

    Big hitter hokey cokey..advice on best one to do? I’m thinking Kane, as I don’t plan to captain him when Son is gone.
    A) Kane and Snodgrass to Jiménez and Salah (-4)

    B) Auba and Snodgrass to Deeney and Salah (-4)

    C) Hazard to Salah for free

    - TAA has started 16 of liverpools 21 matches and has 13 returns to his name. (9 cs 1 goal 3 assists)
    - In 5 matches he didnt start he stayed on the bench. This means if you got a good 1st sub in most gws you might be fine
    - On set peices
    - Clyne leaving means one less body to worry about

    What are your thoughts? Ofcourse id like Robbo in isolation But im leaning towards TAA as extra cash allows me to get Perreyra over Snoddy

      Yeah TAA good option. I got him on WC the week before he got injured in Dec annoyingly - had to move to Lovren!

      I think TAA is good enough value in comparison to Robbo.

        Yh same thinking. The value is too good to ignore playing for best defence in the league

      double up. TAA is an excellent pick

      1. HurriKane

        Only way is to sell Alonso in this case.

      Without being rude. It’s been a shrewd move since about GW3 😉

      Fair points!

      I own Robertson since the start of the season and still consider him a nice pick.

      Doubling-up with TAA might be a good strategy, I am actually considering it. TAA provides excellent value in fact

    Son has played his last game till after the Asia Cup according to the article below

    https://www.goal.com/en/news/tottenham-son-heung-min-dele-alli/fm47khy6e7n71q1oxilbsp4xw

    “In Son's absence, Tottenham host Chelsea in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi-final tie on Tuesday, with the return fixture to be played on January 22. The 26-year-old will also miss Spurs' crucial clash against Manchester United next Sunday.”

    Sorry if this is old news.

      Pretty sure that is wrong.

      I was under the impression he is staying until after Utd.

        Or there’s been a change of plans

          Whilst plans could have changed, that sentence is not attached to any quotes Poch provided to the media. Be wary of what you read, is all I'm saying.

    Which combo? (Already have Arnold)
    A) Sane and Robbo
    Or
    B) Hazard and Doherty

    Sane is to Mane what Sterling is to Salah.

    I feel Sterling is going to start gaining far more points than Sane from now until season ends. Taking price out of it, that’s how it looks to me especially with a Mendy not far off returning.

    Foster (Gunn)
    Trent Digne Robbo (Bennett, Bednarek)
    Salah Pog Richarlison Sane (Puncheon)
    Arnautovic Kane Rashford

    On a WC, finally nailed it..?

    It is time that tackling was banned

    Good tackles are no longer allowed in the game these days

      Good old days eh. Sterling is with a perfectly clean tackle and gets a yc

    A) Sane and Robbo
    Or

    After next week I’d like to do Hazard & Ings to Sane and Rashford but I have exact cash, and Rashford is going to rise. Would you do it now for -4 or look for an alternative route next week for free?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      I'd wait but that's me.

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        It’s probably for the best. I definitely want Rashford, as he’s less injury prone than Arnie, but I can work something else out.
