Clues to Blank Gameweek 31 Chelsea line-up in Ukraine

Fantasy Premier League managers were given clues to Chelsea’s next starting line-up in their latest Europa League win.

The Blues are in action at Everton on Sunday as the final game of Blank Gameweek 31, just three days after comfortably winning 5-0 against Dynamo Kyiv.

That means we can be fairly confident which players will start at Goodison Park after a brief analysis of the Chelsea side that was utilised in Ukraine.

We are reticent to read too much into the result itself though, as assessing anything more than the line-ups would tell us very little given the result and the manner of it.

Meanwhile, Arsenal continue to show what they are capable of at the Emirates Stadium as they came through another high-pressure match there, and extended their winning run at home to six in all competitions.

Europa League quarter-final draw:

  • Arsenal v Napoli
  • Slavia Prague v Chelsea

Dynamo Kyiv 0-5 Chelsea

Goals: Olivier Giroud x3 (£7.7m), Marcos Alonso (£6.4m), Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m)

Assists: Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m), Alonso, Hudson-Odoi, Willian (£7.1m)

Fantasy managers are now clear to sign Eden Hazard (£10.9m) after he was, as expected, given the night off on Thursday. The Belgian was an unused substitute as Chelsea convincingly swept Dynamo Kyiv aside, dominating the game from early on and scoring in the first five minutes. A popular target for Blank Gameweek 31, for those playing the Free Hit chip or not, confirmation that Hazard is still fresh for the weekend should now trigger more purchases for him.

Olivier Giroud (£7.7m) laid down another statement of intent in the Europa League as he scored a hat-trick and added an assist in a total demolition job against Kyiv. The forward has now scored nine goals in as many continental matches this season and continues to prove what an excellent link-up man he is for exciting wide players. Gonzalo Higuaín‘s (£9.6m) illness this week might have some thinking that Giroud could be involved against Everton but given he played 90 minutes in Ukraine and has not started a Premier League match since Gameweek 20, it seems unlikely that he will be in the first XI. More likely, he could be used as a substitute as it seems probable that Higuaín will be over his illness in time. At the very least, the Frenchman is proving he is capable of stepping in if need be.

“(Giroud was) Very, very good. But, in the last period, every time he has been on the pitch, he was able to play really very well. He’s scored nine goals in this competition. As you know very well, Olivier for us is a very important player. I’m really very happy for him, and am really very happy with him.” – Maurizio Sarri

74 minutes for Willian (£7.1m) against Kyiv, plus a benching in Gameweek 30 mean that the Brazilian is unlikely to start at Goodison Park. That makes him much less of an option for those planning to play the Free Hit and save some money on a Chelsea attacker this week, despite his recent underlying statistics looking quite favourable. Pedro (£6.3m) featured only as a 74th-minute substitute in Ukraine so it looks as if the Spaniard will join Higuaín if fit, and Hazard in the front three on Sunday and could be the alternative to go for.

It is now clear as it can get that Marcos Alonso (£6.4m) has lost his place in the first-team to Emerson Palmieri (£5.2m). The Spaniard played the full 90 minutes against Kyiv having missed the last two Premier League matches, while his Italian counterpart was given the night off. Despite slipping down the pecking order, it was actually a textbook attacking performance from Alonso. He was an exciting outlet down Chelsea’s left flank and his cross into the box for Giroud’s second goal was expertly weighted. Furthermore, he got on the scoresheet himself after showing us he can still take up centre-forward positions at various stages during matches. However, we must remember the quality of opposition as Kyiv were once again far too easy to open up at the back, conceding eight goals in total across both legs.

Elsewhere in defence, rests for David Luiz (£5.9m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.3m) should see them come back into the side for Blank Gameweek 31 as Andreas Christensen (£5.0m) and Davide Zappacosta (£5.0m) took their places. The latter limped off and is now considered a doubt for the trip to Everton. Meanwhile, Antonio Rüdiger (£5.9m) played the whole match in Ukraine but should keep his place as his rest came in the first leg, where he was an unused substitute.

Any hopes of Chelsea’s young midfielders Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m) starting in Blank Gameweek 31 were dashed by their 90-minute outings on Thursday night. However, at least they have made some progress up the Blues’ pecking order in the mind of Maurizio Sarri. Loftus-Cheek’s three appearances outside the Premier League prior to the trip to Kyiv were from the substitutes bench. This was his first start since January and the first time he completed a match since before Christmas. As expected, Loftus-Cheek showed the drive in possession that Chelsea have sorely missed from their midfield this season. Meanwhile, Hudson-Odoi was making his second start from a possible three in the Europa League. Between the two players, they registered a goal and two assists as they look to push on and threaten to break into the first team.

The central midfield trio to start at Everton looks likely to feature usual suspects Jorginho (£4.6m), who played just 25 minutes in Ukraine, N’Golo Kanté (£5.0m), who registered 65 minutes and former Toffees man Ross Barkley (£5.1m), who was an unused substitute. Matteo Kovačić (£5.7m) played the full 90 so will likely feature only from the bench at Goodison Park.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Alonso, Christensen, Rüdiger, Zappacosta (Azpilicueta 69′); Loftus-Cheek, Kovačić, Kanté (Jorginho 65′); Willian (Pedro 74′), Giroud, Hudson-Odoi.

Arsenal 3-0 Rennes

Goals: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang x2 (£10.8m), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.4m)

Assists: Aaron Ramsey (£7.1m), Aubameyang, Sead Kolasinac (£5.0m)

Fantasy managers should continue to take note of Arsenal’s increasing confidence in big fixtures at home. For the second time in the space of a week, the Gunners came through a pressure match in front of their own fans largely unscathed and with an impressive result. A 3-0 win over Rennes, after losing the first leg 3-1, put them into the quarter-finals of the Europa League just days after seeing off in-form Manchester United and condemning them to a first league defeat since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived as caretaker manager.

With Alexandre Lacazette‘s (£9.4m) three-match Europa League ban reduced to two shortly before Thursday’s second-leg, that meant that he was able to start alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) for the second match in a row. Now that Unai Emery has been able to pair the two up once again, it has helped transform Arsenal’s fortunes in these big games. Scoring relatively early in each one has been a huge factor to help them emerge from both matches with an aggregate score of 5-0.

“It’s given us big confidence, Sunday against Manchester United and today the same after this comeback. Our reaction is very good and playing under pressure is good. Growing up under pressure, like a team, feeling difficult moments and giving us our best performance in this moment. For us, today and Sunday we were competitive. I think it’s good confidence for us to feel that. After(wards), I am very demanding myself and I want to take better control with the ball and with possession. Against United and today, we lost the ball a bit and control of the match with the ball.” – Unai Emery

Aubameyang is now a suspension tightrope in the Europa League after he was booked for donning a Black Panther mask in celebrating his second goal. One more yellow card in this tournament would see the forward suspended for one match, which would be a huge blow to the Gunners’ chances of going all the way in the Europa League. However, it could be good news for Fantasy managers looking at Arsenal’s fixtures between Gameweek 34 and the end of the season, as having him as more of a confirmed starter for Watford (away), Crystal Palace (home), Leicester (away), Brighton (home) and Burnley (away).

After coming back from suspension earlier than expected, Lacazette received a booking in the 31st minute which could have been red in the eyes of some. Asked if he substituted him in the 70th minute for fear of losing him again, Emery explained he simply wanted to rotate his players.

“We decided one plan for 90 minutes because we knew we needed 90 minutes and maybe more because at 3-0 if they scored we were going to play extra-time. Iwobi and Mkhi deserved to play. When they supported us for the 30 minutes they helped us a lot. The 10 minutes after the changes, their impact was good with the goal and creating two chances. I think we need every player. Today the first XI was important, but also the players who came on during the match.” – Unai Emery

After performing very well against Manchester United, it was another excellent performance for Sead Kolašinac (£5.0m) on Thursday night. His advanced runs helped him register an assist for Aubameyang’s second goal and furthered his case to make the left-back spot his own, amid rumours that Arsenal are looking for a new signing in that position over the summer.

Aaron Ramsey (£7.1m) was a key individual once again, proving that he will be a big loss from next season onwards. In the last three matches in all competitions he now has two assists.

With no fixture in the FA Cup or Premier League this weekend, Arsenal are now not back in action until April 1, when they host Newcastle in Gameweek 32.

Arsenal XI (3-4-1-2): Cech; Monreal, Koscielny, Mustafi; Kolašinac, Xhaka, Ramsey (Torreira 87′), Maitland-Niles; Özil (Mkhitaryan 70′); Lacazette (Iwobi 70′), Aubameyang.

                  Under my regime only the most intelligent, and attractive people will be allowed to breed, and these children will become property of the government, for us to use to develop super technologies, or to join the new super army.
                  So childcare isn't an issue.

                That's a whole different, and very big argument...that will likely be shut down if we get into it on here!

                It might be considered inhumane to make them race in the first place, but probably most would agree it's the most humane thing to do after a leg break.

                Horses with broken legs don't recover well, if at all. Supposedly death is kinder to the horse. But ya know, so long as people have got something to bet on. The already filth rich trainers/owners obviously don't give a toss either. Money money money.

                1. HamezMace
                  • 4 Years
                  10 days, 13 hours ago

                  Oh looks like we are going there, mods must be having a Friday afternoon nap.

                  Yes, a horse will likely not recover from a broken leg, and during potential recovery would be at risk of many complication which would be extremely painful for the animal, such as developing laminitis in its other hooves.

                    Didn't realise it was such a contentious subject here! To me the whole 'sport' seems to exist purely to enable the exchange of cash rather than for athletic achievement or skill. Just my opinion though. If they had to shoot injured jockeys with a bolt gun under a tent on the track then it might not be as popular. Or, depressingly, possibly more popular. We live in weird times.

                    1. HamezMace
                      • 4 Years
                      10 days, 13 hours ago

                      Maybe it's not, I just thought it would be quite a divisive subject, I've seen a few people on here talk about racing/betting over the last week.

                      I mean I do agree with you, it's a very elitist sport, and every year there are animal casuals.

                      I suppose the same could be said about boxing/ufc stuff, essentially you're training a couple of people to get in a ring and smack the hell out of each other for the entertainment of the crowd.

                      I guess the difference is the people have a choice, whereas the horses don't.

                        Yeah, exactly. I'm not a fan of UFC or boxing really, but as you say, at least there is agency on the behalf of the competitors, they know what they're doing and the risks involved.

                        animal casuals = horses who take lots of hits and don't plan for the blank gameweeks? 😉

          I was watching the race - was horrific - he had to be re-shoed delaying the start of the race, hard to know whether that was a factor but it's killed the whole day in Cheltenham for most

            Why just today - it happens every day there is a race. It's a sick pastime on a par with bullfighting....

              Don't think it's quite that often, but I'm pretty sure over 100 horses died racing in 2018 in Britain alone, which is a lot. Imagine 100 of any other type of competitor dying mid-sport in a single year.

              1. TRASH BOAT
                • 5 Years
                10 days, 12 hours ago

                yeah i meant for every National Hunt day in the calendar there is a fatality.

                The problem is that the racing without doubt is a truly great spectacle - take the National - which is massively exciting and I used to watch it. But as I got older I realised the potential to see an innocent animal die for sporting reasons alone was not something I could take part in.

              Very true, it's bad to say but that's the first time I've ever really felt disturbed by a horse injury/fatality (not that I've even seen many horses fall), partly because it was so graphically captured by the cameras, and partly because he was a massive, massive favourite for the race, there was a lot of tension with the race having to be delayed because of the problems with his shoe and it may have been nothing to do with his injury, but it was horrific nonetheless.

                Sorry you had to see it and because you obviously care it will be in your memory for a while...its why I don't watch. The only consolation is these horses at least get well treated till this happens...

          Balbuena last game was on before Christmas. I would transfer Ogbonna in.

                Yes, but I would go save. Do you think that West Ham will get a clean sheet?

                    Get Diop if you don’t already have him take the worry out of waiting for the teamsheet... or Rice for that matter depending how much you have!!

            As good a shout as anyone.

            Don’t like Chelsea at the back for an away clean sheet and as inconsistent as Everton are they have goals in them.

            Reckon both teams will score but Chelsea to win.

            do we know if Puncheon is back on contention or just move him on and get someone nailed for a hit?

            A) Play this weekend with ten players
            B) Doherty -> Rice (West Ham has the best chance to get a clean sheet) for - 4?

            Thank you!

                Lascelles. 6, 6, Benched him, -1: 11

                Schar: 6, 15, would have benched, 0= 21

              With lascelles out I have only taa and robbo so should I get a third defender or 5 mids amd 3 strikers will play to form my 11?

                I'm probably going to make my other transfers, well ones influenced by price changes tonight.

                Then make a decision on Lascelles based on the QF tomorrow. If Watford are smashing it, I'll probably ditch Lascelles for a hit.

                If you don't have 3 defenders, then you'll play with ten men no matter how many players you have elsewhere

                Not at all. That's a great move if you have funds
