Scout Notes

A first look at Leicester’s Fantasy assets under Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers’ reign as Leicester City manager got off to a losing start on Sunday as his new charges fell to a last-gasp 2-1 defeat at Vicarage Road.

Jamie Vardy was on the scoresheet for the second successive match but was later substituted after suffering the ill-effects of a collision with Ben Foster – more on that incident can be found below.

We run the rule over how the Foxes’ players performed under their new head coach from a Fantasy perspective in our latest Scout Notes article.

Watford 2-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Troy Deeney (£5.9m), Andre Gray (£5.9m) | Jamie Vardy (£8.9m)
  • Assists: Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m), Troy Deeney | Youri Tielemans (£6.0m)

Brendan Rodgers wasted no time in putting his own stamp on Leicester City in his first game in charge.

While he made only one change to the starting XI from the team that defeated Brighton in midweek, the ex-Celtic boss ditched the recently-favoured 4-1-4-1/4-2-3-1 set-up of his predecessor in favour of a wing-back system for the trip to Watford on Sunday.

Veteran Wes Morgan (£4.5m) came into a back three alongside Harry Maguire (£5.4m) and Jonny Evans (£4.8m), with Ricardo Pereira (£5.4m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.0m) pushed forward as wing-backs in a 3-4-3.

Harvey Barnes (£5.5m) and James Maddison (£6.7m) were the two attacking midfielders chosen to flank Jamie Vardy (£8.9m), meanwhile, with Demarai Gray (£5.4m) dropping to the bench.

The initial results at Vicarage Road were mixed: the Foxes understandably struggled for any kind of coherence in the opening exchanges of Sunday’s loss to the Hornets and fell behind to their now trademark early goal, though steadily took control of the match in the second half without carving out too many clear-cut opportunities.

The positive news is that the trip to eighth-place Watford was arguably Leicester’s toughest fixture until Gameweek 36 and the Foxes next take on a Fulham side that have shipped two or more goals in all nine of their Premier League matches contested in 2019 – though who were admittedly much-improved in the west London derby today.

Rodgers only had four days of training with his new side ahead of today’s game, so a full week of preparation can only be beneficial in the run-up to a meeting with the Championship-bound Cottagers.

There are plenty of creases to iron out, of course.

Leicester have fallen 1-0 down in 20 of their 29 league matches this season, with their fallibility in the opening ten minutes again in evidence at Vicarage Road.

Moments after Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m) had made an excellent save from Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) and Morgan heroically blocked a follow-up effort, Troy Deeney (£5.9m) nodded Watford in front from a teasing Gerard Deulofeu (£5.6m) free-kick.

All of that happened in the opening five minutes and the frustration for Fantasy owners of Leicester’s defenders was that, much like in the recent games against Liverpool and Manchester United, the Foxes’ backline largely contained their opponents thereafter.

Watford, indeed, only had another three attempts on goal after that point – one of which was the injury-time winner that Andre Gray (£5.9m) converted after a sloppy kick out from Schmeichel.

While Leicester bossed possession and registered more than twice as many shots as their hosts, there weren’t any gilt-edged chances for the Foxes until Vardy raced onto a Youri Tielemans (£6.0m) through ball on 74 minutes to level the scores up.

Vardy recorded only 15 touches at Vicarage Road, fewer than any other outfield player who started in Gameweek 29 – a testimony to how well Mariappa and Craig Cathcart (£4.6m) played for the Hornets at centre-back but also to how little Leicester actually did with the ball for the bulk of this match.

There were glimmers of promise: Maddison flickered into life late on and set up an excellent headed chance for Morgan, while Chilwell and Pereira were prominent in the wide areas and racked up 72 touches in the final third between them.

While Leicester’s wing-backs couldn’t turn their touches into meaningful end product, there were faint signs of encouragement that the new system could improve their chances of registering attacking returns going forward. Chilwell, indeed, found himself in a handful of promising situations late on but couldn’t produce a telling final ball.

Tielemans’ passing from central midfield looks key to Leicester’s attacking prospects, with the Belgian having provided the assist for Vardy’s goal and having found the two wing-backs out wide on a number of occasions.

Rodgers said of Tielemans’ role in this 3-4-3 set-up:

The idea today was to have three centre-backs plus Wilf [Ndidi] just controlling the counter-attack. That would give Youri the license to move forward that bit more. You can see he can make that pass and play it.

Vardy’s strike came from his only shot of the match, with the groggy-looking Leicester forward being substituted late on after an earlier clash with Ben Foster (£4.6m).

Rodgers’ assuaged any fears of a serious injury after full-time, however:

He’s OK. He’s more from the impact from the actual collision so he’s just felt a little bit wary. Other than that, he should be OK. Just didn’t feel quite right, he maybe could have stayed on but there’s no point in risking him.

We are hoping he will be OK in the next couple of days.

The former Liverpool manager also provided some comments on Vardy’s role under his stewardship, which will be encouraging for those Fantasy managers who own the premium forward or who are considering a move for him:

He’s a player I’ve always loved, we’ve seen in the last number of years, he’s a born goalscorer, but he is perfect for us in the intensity in which he presses and his running ability.

He showed what he is great at, the pass by Youri, great speed and a wonderful finish, so it is just about getting players in and around him, so he is not on his own and we did that in the second half.

Rodgers said of his side’s efforts overall:

I was really disappointed for the players and supporters today because we got off to a slow start and conceded early on in the game, which was not ideal, especially away from home.

I know it’s a trend that we need to eradicate. Then, I thought we worked our way into the game. We were a little bit slow with our passing in the first half, but we still got into some good positions.

We addressed one or two items at half-time and I thought in the second half, the players were excellent. I thought we looked like the team that would equalise, and we did.

We scored a fantastic goal and it just looked like a matter of time before the second would come. We had all the pressure and really sustained our attacks. You could just sense that they were going to be happy to take a point, Watford.

The more we get used to working together, the better we’ll become.

Watford’s Fantasy assets might be largely unfavoured for the rest of March, given that they face away matches at both Manchester clubs either side of a blank in Gameweek 31 (though the Hornets could have a Double Gameweek 32, depending on what happens in the FA Cup quarter-finals and the subsequent fixture rearrangement).

The hosts were much-improved from a defensive perspective after the 5-0 hammering at Anfield in midweek, with their solid backline helped out by the formidable twosome of Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.9m) and Etienne Capoue (£4.8m) in central midfield.

It was a curious match for Watford’s attacking assets – the bustling Deeney emerging with a double-digit haul from one shot and one key pass, while Deulofeu was mostly anonymous after his assist for his strike partner’s early goal.

Gracia cited uncertainty over Leicester’s tactics as a mitigating factor but added that the rearguard effort in the second half was by design, rather than as a result of any dominance from the visitors:

We always try to prepare for games the same way but in this case, it was different because Leicester had a new coach and we didn’t know the shape and the players they would choose.

When we started playing against three at the back we tried to adapt quickly and I think we played better in the first half, we adapted very quickly we scored and created more chances.

In the second, it was the moment when we tried to defend close to our goalposts, tried to be compact and in this way we were able to win against a very good team as Leicester is.

Jose Holebas (£4.8m) returned at left-back for Adam Masina (£4.3m) in what was Gracia’s only change to his starting XI.

Watford XI (4-4-2): Foster; Janmaat, Mariappa, Cathcart, Holebas; Hughes (Cleverley 90′), Capoue, Doucoure, Pereyra; Deulofeu (Gray 69′), Deeney.

Leicester City XI (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel; Evans, Morgan, Maguire; Ricardo, Ndidi, Tielemans (Mendy 83′), Chilwell; Maddison, Barnes (Gray 66′); Vardy (Iheanacho 83′).

    With the frustrating returns of Pereria and Doherty this weekend: are these mid priced defenders from mid table teams worth it? Or should we be going a mix of cheap, and premium only in defence?

    Though Doherty, Digne and Pereria have all had hauls, they don’t score consistently enough to auto play, and often haul unexpectedly when benched. Making them an expensive frustration.

    1. Only a Hazard of time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Doherty is expendable - two blanks and three tricky fixtures in the next 5.

        16 days, 1 hour ago

        Yea if it wouldn’t cost me a hit around my other two planned gw31 transfers I’d be moving him on tbh. I’ve had him for 16gws and he has only averaged 3.1ppm when he’s played for me. He flatters to deceive because wolves don’t keep many clean sheets.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      Got Doherty for 4.5 but still considering shipping. As you say, way too inconsistent. Pereira is the first I will transfer out on WC GW 34.

        Yea I’m thinking that too atm. I’m still hoping he gets a nice haul between now and then (ideally in gw31 where I’ll have to play him). The new wing back role could be a boost too. But it’s all coulds, and hopefullys atm

      You type FAST 😉

      I'm minded to agree but Doherty is the exception. He would be a good pick as a midfielder, so involved is he in everything good about Wolves' attacking moves.

      A few of the premium defenders are still such excellent picks. Three of them and a couple of bench fillers and you're on your way. It's been the way for a while. We'll gladly spend 3-4m to upgrade a mid range midfielder to premium, but we tend to baulk at a better value upgrade in defence for 1-1.5m.

      1. Alpharius
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 1 hour ago

        Haha I actually read the article first too.

        I agree on the premium defenders (Robertson isn’t far behind the premium mids and he’s £3m less), and AWB and recently Diop are showing value.

        Doherty though is a funny one, I was analysing the points he’s got me when I’ve played him (8 out of the last 16gws), and he has only averaged 3.1ppm. He seems to either get me 1 or 5, and I can never predict when he’ll get either. That’s not really enough for his price now for me.

              Rodgers played down the injury, I think he’ll be straight forward in his presser if Vardy is fit to play next week. If he is could be a good shout as the big fellas are not delivering atm.

                Nice read SR. Good to see so many attacking touches for Pereira. Comments on here were suggesting he was a waste of space. Not that we ever do hyperbole....

                  Yeah, he was heavily involved in terms of touches. Didn't do a great amount with it, unfortunately. Hopefully he and Leicester will look more of a potent threat against Fulham next weekend but I was actually impressed by them today.

                    It's no surprise really. Neither Barnes nor Maddison are naturally wide players, so they were always going to tuck in, with the wing backs providing the width. One to keep monitoring!

                    I like these review articles, I find these and the captaincy/press conference round ups the most accessible info.

                    I’m hoping the wing back role gets Pereria more attacking returns, but I’m just not sure whether the clean sheets will come. It’s gutting when it’s lost I the first few mins (as Leicester are wont to do)

        I’m considering it for Vardy. It just makes sense. I can bring him back in on my FH 32. The painful bit is that it will cost me 0.5 more to do it. My TV is 108.2 so I can soak it up.

            Don’t bring in Pereira and that’s coming from an owner of Pereira

                Im guessing it’s because he doesn’t get points

            Want to bring in Boruc for GW30 and both blank GWs.
            would you get rid of Guaita or Patricio to get him?

            1. Flapjack ✅
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              16 days, 1 hour ago

              Pat

            2. Only a Hazard of time
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              16 days, 1 hour ago

              Considering Palace have Brighton and Huddersfield at home, Patricio.

            3. Whazza
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Is either first choice anymore? Pat

              Do we expect Guaita to start?

                  16 days, 31 mins ago

                  that's why I'm leaning to get rid of Guaita....and have Patricio for the DGW32

                i have salah mane and hazard so hard to say but I would not lose salah before home game to burnley, really woudlnt....

                I think they are good moves if you have 2fts, and are happy with the rest of your team. Wouldn’t do it for a hit though.

                1. BucketHead
                  • 5 Years
                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  For a hit

                  1. Alpharius
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    16 days, 2 mins ago

                    Then I’d probably roll the ft and see whether you still want to do it the week after Burnley.

              Bench points check:
              16 from 3

              1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 4 Years
                16 days, 1 hour ago

                d'oh hard luck !!

              2. Alpharius
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                16 days, 1 hour ago

                How did the rest of your team do?

                I got 80pts from my XI with 30pts on the bench gw1 and it still haunts me.

                1. Fossit
                  • 2 Years
                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  58 in team. Doherty cost me more points this season than gained. Sick of him!

                  1. Alpharius
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    15 days, 23 hours ago

                    I have come to the exact same conclusion. He is too unpredictable, much like Joe said about hazard I think you either; get him and keep/play him every week, or don’t get him at all

                2. Snevitz
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  Why would it haunt you?
                  I had 90/31 and was really happy. It means you picked good players.

                  1. Alpharius
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    15 days, 23 hours ago

                    Because I fit into the mini max regret mode of risk taking. It was Mendys (15) that annoyed more than AWBs (12). That could be the ML difference at season end.
                    Will be tough to get that on BB.

                2 from 3.

              Who would you have lads??
              A- Vardy
              B- Higuaín
              C- King

                • 3 Years
                16 days, 1 hour ago

                A

              2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
                • 5 Years
                16 days, 1 hour ago

                Got A. Getting C.

                1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  Think I’m leaning toward A and C will do Sterling to Hazard in 31 so that covers all 3 teams nicely already have Fraser too

                • 4 Years
                16 days, 1 hour ago

                Nothing like getting 7 points total from Aguero, Rashford, Son, Salah, and Pogba...

                  Tough mate.

                  Double Liverpool defence and Jiminez have saved me.

                  I have 4 out of them 5

                    • 4 Years
                    16 days, 1 hour ago

                    Yeah. At least I had JWP, Jimenez, Robbo, and Fabianski to shore up the score a little bit.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  At least you didn’t have Auba it Pereria.

                  Just think there’s probably someone who TC Pogba, has Auba, Doherty and Pereria.

              Anderson is useless isn’t he.

              Plays 31 but I might get rid anyway.

              Also what are Son owners doing?

              Brooks and Hazard for Anderson and Son is tempting me

                  What’s your team?
                  It really depends on how many players you can field in gw31

                  16 days, 1 hour ago

                  Depends on if you have enough players to field a decent team in 31 or not. I'll be free hitting in 32, then using wildcard for 34

                    Thanks everyone. I have 9 players for 31. Free hit 32, WC 34 it is then. I will use my triple captain on Vardy next week if he is passed fit. Thanks again.

                  So now after the games, who's going to win the league you reckon?

                  For me it still feels like Liverpool....

                  They don't seem to be operating in top gear but are still there regardless....

                  Nice run in and the motivation of doing it for the first time in a long while sways it imo

                  1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
                    • 5 Years
                    16 days, 1 hour ago

                    Is GW32 definitely going to be a double for lots of teams? If so, does anyone know which teams might have two tasty fixtures?

                        Although teams with slightly harder fixtures might be better since easy fixtures means more rotation

                          Provided fit to play ( taken off quite early and took heavy tackle) I think so- wait for Howes press conference
