Where FPL teams concede the most chances from – Part 2

We have used data from the Fantasy Football Scout Members Area to identify where each Premier League team is most susceptible to conceding goals.

That has allowed us to pick out some players who look set to benefit from several positional match-ups over the next six Gameweeks.

These are options who operate in the areas that their upcoming opponents are susceptible to conceding goals from.

This information is likely to be helpful for anyone mulling over difficult transfer or bench decisions for Gameweek 22 and the short-term future.

    Keep Martial or ditch?

    Have Pogba as well.

      Ditch, but no point wasting a FT on him this GW if you can just bench him.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Can't bench as the bench is too weak. Richarlison worth bringing in?

          Fraser according to this article.

              Fraser faces each team's most vulnerable flank and then goes on to plum fixtures. Seems like a long term plan to me.

        This easy

  4. Jᴀʀᴠish
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    If a team concedes loads of chances down one flank, would they not be aware of this and be looking to do something about it?

    1. diesel001
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      What if the replacement options would only serve to make the problem worse?

      1. Jᴀʀᴠish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        So they just bend over and take it up the tailpipe? Guess it depends if there is anything feasible they can do.

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I'm sure each team deploys their best option for each position.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Pretty good but do you really need the Foster/Femenia double up? Foster to another 4.5 GK

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good team great front line but whole team has rotation risk and not much back up

    3. NIKO.

    Best transfer this week to allow for big moves next week....
    A. Fabs to Guaita
    B. Digne to Bednarek/Cedric
    C. Martial to Fraser
    D. Martial to Richarlison (but means a hit might be necessary for Salah next week)

    1. william prunier
      • 3 Years

      A

  12. Halas it's Salah
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Any changes needed with my team here?

    Fabs
    Robbo AWB Lindelof Pereira
    Salah Pogba Richarlison
    Kane Rashford Aubameyang

    Button/Doherty/Neves/Masuaka

    1. william prunier
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Robbo to TAA

      1. Halas it's Salah
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Sideways move but than again this will free up 1.2m to upgrade Masuaka Cheers for the advise.

    Ramsey would favour a move to Liverpool if he remains in England

    *shock:

    1. Fantastisk
      2 months, 14 days ago

      He probably saw how the Ox's career has really taken off since the move from Arsenal to Liverpool and thought I'd like some of that.

      I'm not a LFC or Arse supporter but I would love to see that move. Ramsey class player....miles better than everything at Arsenal except boomerang

      Ings might be back for the Everton fixture.

  16. dannyboy25
    2 months, 14 days ago

    right I need some opinion... I currently have a well balanced team (probably too well balanced) so I will be freeing up funds from my 5th mid ... I will therefore have a weaker bench moving forwards. My thinking then is now would be a good time to bench boost when I am struggling to choose who to bench? Or am I absolutely barmy and should wait for a DGW?

    Bench

    Lossl (6?) Tripper (3 ?) Awb (6) Jimenez (8)

    optimistic points above maybe but would be more than the 4 for bench fodder in a DGW? --- talk me out of it haha

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      23 is a very good return for a BB in my eyes

      1. dannyboy25
        2 months, 14 days ago

        if they got those points I would be more than comfortable with it... but am I being too optimistic?

    2. Amey
      2 months, 14 days ago

      DGW is long away right ??

      1. dannyboy25
        2 months, 14 days ago

        yes but I have an itchy trigger finger haha

        1. Amey
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I'd not BB that team/bench.
          Lossl will concede IMO as Cardiff go all out attack against weak teams @ home + Tripps will likely concede + Jimmy scoring not sure so not worth the risk to spend a Chip.

          1. dannyboy25
            2 months, 14 days ago

            thanks - can see all of that happening as well tbf

      I'm not against a SGW BB at all, but I'd want all 4 to have really good fixtures

      1. dannyboy25
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I hear you - just have a feeling for this GW with jimi scoring against bigger teams and city being far from great at the back - also thinking I'll have a weaker bench moving forward .. hmmm

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You could start off by not spamming your question.

      Are you setting up a new team? Because if not I'm sure last man standing uses the team you've already got.

      Why dont you come up with a team and ask (once)... Can I make any changes to this instead of letting others do the work for you.

  20. LSP FC

    i'm stumped on what to do with Martial, he's got some serious competition for his place but some great upcoming fixtures, i'm also not comfortable with him playing against my goalie this week but i'd be sick if i benched him and he popped up with a brace like he did against Chelsea

    Lloris
    TAA-Luiz-AWB
    Salah-Shaq-Martial-Anderson-Rich
    Auba-Aguero(c)

    Hamer-Kiko-Kamara-Shaw , 1ft 0.1 itb

  22. Miguel Sanchez

    Rolling the 4-5-1 this week. Having used it twice this season it has brought me an average of 71.5 points (highest average of all the formations played).

    1. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      That's very good....but why have you only done it twice ??

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Thought 3-5-2 was the way to go having played it 11 times at an average score of 60.5

    2. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      What's your point, sir?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I'm not too sure... trying to reassure myself that 4-5-1 is the way to go despite it looking defensive/odd

        1. Corgzzzz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Show the team and let's see if it's a good idea for this week.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            Robertson TAA Digne AWB
            Hazard (c) Son Pogba Anderson Richarlison
            Kane

            Hamer Mitrovic Doherty Ings* 3.1 ITB

            Mitro to Kamara and Son to Salah (-4) next GW

            1. Corgzzzz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Yep can see why you would. It's a toss up between Mitro away to Burnley or AWB home to Watford....close call

            2. Amey
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Play mitro mate.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Formation doesn't cause points. Just forget about it and play the best XI you can.

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Too small a sample. Allerdyce has 100% England record 🙂

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Very true - do we ever reach statistical significance with only 38 GWs to play with?

        1. Deulofail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 13 days ago

          Depends on the question, the type of data and the results.

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            I sense you are talking about making conclusions based on your own team's performance, though, to which the answer is that sample size barely matters. You will never be able to generalise because you are but a single mingle.

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 13 days ago

              Good points - wonder if some of the fpl tools that have access to multiple teams histories would be able to provide a better idea.

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 13 days ago

                Likely to vary season on season too, especially with players like Salah being misclassified this season for example

              2. Deulofail
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years

                I'm not sure it's an interesting question, because as I say, formations don't cause points. You may find out that 3-4-3 was the highest scoring formation this season, then travel back in time, play 3-4-3 all season and get fewer points than your first try, when you were actually looking at more powerful predictors of FPL points - like underying stats and eye test - and more causative variables for team-building, like which player is going to score more points this week, rather than which gap in my team do I have to fill to make 3-4-3.

                Not only will the result, effect size and significance of such tests change between seasons, but it would ignore the nuances within seasons and within and between FPL teams. It's just too broad a variable to care about imo.

    Got no pressing issues in my team this week. Is Anderson > Richarlison too sideways a move? Is everyone overlooking that fixture against Arsenal, when it could actually be a great fixture from an attacking point of view?

    Is David Luiz worth the money or should I be looking to downgrade to Dinge?

    Reading this article and seeing cup match vs Chelsea gives me strong feeling that Trippier will assist and Kane score at least one. And there he is, first in my bench 🙁 Too much squad depth can be annoying.

      True but you might need squad depth when spurs for example have some blanks coming up.

    Want to capt Hazard but has let me down twice and Newcastle with the exception of the Liverpool game don't concede many .....other choice Auba, Son or Sane....what to do ???

      I've gone Auba over Salah and Hazard pal. Not a fan of the early kick off but I think brighter will be tighter than west ham and yeah I cant trust Hazard. Hat trick incoming.
