Contrasting auditions for Southampton and Wolves ahead of Double Gameweek

There were contrasting fortunes for Southampton and Wolves as the two sides auditioned for Double Gameweek 35.

In a 3-1 win, the Saints showcased a number of viable options for fixtures against Newcastle and Watford, while Wolves disappointed hugely.

We’ve run the rule over the assets available at these two clubs to help us fine-tune our squads for the next round of action.

Southampton 3-1 Wolves

Goals: Nathan Redmond x2 (£5.3m), Shane Long (£4.6m)

Assists: Josh Sims (£4.4m), Danny Ings (£5.4m), Maya Yoshida (£4.1m)

Nathan Redmond (£5.3m) looks set to be the Southampton midfielder of choice for Fantasy managers in Double Gameweek 35. After a run of seven games without a Premier League goal, he netted a brace in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Wolves. The former Norwich City midfielder has shown potential over recent weeks, and finally lived up to it in Double Gameweek 34.

Ironically, that came after Ralph Hasenhüttl deployed Redmond in a slightly deeper role than usual. He had been playing as a centre-forward, alongside either Danny Ings (£5.4m) or Shane Long (£4.6m) of late, but against Wolves, he was stationed just behind the former, playing in a central attacking midfield pair with Josh Sims (£4.4m). That setup helped Southampton apply pressure to Wolves from the front, a key element of their style of play under Hasenhüttl.

“We want to be a team who is pressing to win the ball early and immediately switching forward. We did this today in a good way, which was massive against this team.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Redmond finished the game with more goal attempts, more shots in the box and more on target than any other player on the pitch. Crucially, in the last four matches, he is top for all three of those statistics when compared with his Southampton colleagues. He now looks the best option to consider when looking to invest in the Saints’ Double Gameweek.

“I show (Redmond) what we need in his position that he plays and show him that he can be the guy who makes the difference. I’m very happy that (Redmond) scored again. I think he has waited six or seven games. What was very positive for me is that after the 1-0 he didn’t stop working, he was always going for the second goal. He has the quality and the second goal was a fantastic run from him, exactly what we were demanding from him today in the gap and he was very clinical.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Also impressing, and getting involved in the points was Sims, who earned plenty of praise from his manager after assisting Redmond’s opener. However, it is definitely too early to rely on him currently as Double Gameweek 34 brought just his first Premier League start of the season. The 22-year-old came into the side at the expense of Oriol Romeu (£4.2m), who had started every single match from Gameweek 16 onwards before Saturday’s win over Wolves.

“I want to give (Sims) the chance to play and it was really not easy to pick the first XI. I left Oriol (Romeu) out and it was a tough decision for me because he played fantastic games. The younger guys showed they were very focussed in the first half and then to have experience on the bench to bring in is never worse for me as a manager so it was important for me.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

“I am very happy with (Sims) because he deserved to play from the beginning. As a substitute, he showed that he can help us with his speed. He had a good chance to score. Unfortunately, he didn’t, but I think he is another part and a different player which we need in our team. It is always good if you can surprise the opponent a little bit with new players and that’s what I like.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Despite failing to find attacking returns, Pierre Emile Højbjerg (£4.4m) remains the most promising Southampton midfielder in his price bracket. In the last four matches, of those who are fit and available, only Redmond has more goal attempts and shots in the box than Højbjerg.

Meanwhile, James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m) is looking less of an option for Fantasy managers, especially with the form that Redmond has been showing. After scoring three in a row between Gameweeks 28 and 30, Ward-Prowse is now without an attacking return for three consecutive fixtures. He is still the set-piece taker for Southampton, but his number of chances created in the last four matches is matched by the cheaper Højbjerg and bettered by Ings.

Those looking to Yan Valery (£4.1m) for their Bench Boost squads in Double Gameweek 35 must now wait patiently on for an update on his fitness. The right wing-back was taken off in the 83rd minute and is now a doubt for next Saturday’s trip to Newcastle. Some reports claim it was nothing more than cramp but his withdrawal still warrants paying attention to Hasenhüttl’s upcoming press conference.

In contrast to Southampton, Wolves assets are becoming increasingly unreliable away from home and against the so-called lesser sides. They have now failed to win any of their last five matches on the road, six if you include the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. Furthermore, in eight meetings with sides in the bottom five this season, Wolves have won just two, drawn one and lost five. Of further concern was Nuno Espirito Santo’s reaction to being asked about these disappointing statistics. He stormed out of his post-match press conference when asked about them.

“How many games have we had at home? Come on [storms out].” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Once again, Wolves also displayed their struggles to produce positive results and performances when they concede the first goal. After Redmond took the lead in the second minute, Nuno’s side did not look capable of their best. It was not the first time this season that has happened, and it is starting to become a regular occurrence too. Wolves conceded the first goal at Burnley in Double Gameweek 32, at Huddersfield in Gameweek 28, and at home to Newcastle in Gameweek 26.

“In the first minute, that’s where it went wrong. Just like in the Burnley, we had to be coming from behind – we had to follow and come back from 1-0. They got the first goal way too quick and we were behind straight away, so it’s difficult. It’s important to keep them zero, because it gets very difficult to come from behind every time, and we have to see what we can do. In the first half we had three chances against, and two times it goes in, so we have to do something.” – Leander Dendoncker

Such circumstances did not help popular FPL forward Raúl Jiménez (£6.9m) maintain his impressive run of form. After nine attacking returns in as many matches before Double Gameweek 34, he blanked at Southampton from just two efforts on goal, one in the box and one on target. Crucially, his expected goals (xG) score was just 0.17, with the quality of his chances very low. It was a similar story for strike-partner Diogo Jota (£6.2m) who did not register a single shot on goal.

The key problem for Wolves was their defensive organisation, which was not up to its usual standard. That ensured that they still have just one clean sheet in their last nine matches, and will probably discourage investment in options such as Matt Doherty (£5.3m) or Jonny (£4.3m) ahead of Double Gameweek 35.

“Our defensive organisation was very, very bad. We made mistakes since the beginning of the game. We weren’t able to control. Mistakes happen, we have to know why. It’s not about what you miss, it’s about what you concede, this game is what you concede, what you concede in your own box, and we conceded too much. It was not a good performance and it’s something that we have to analyse deeply inside and look at. Since the beginning of the game we didn’t do very well, our defensive organisation was not good.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

However, despite another frustrating result for Wolves on the road, their prospects for Double Gameweek 35 are by no means bleak. It is very clear that they are much better at home, with four wins from the last five Premier League matches at Molineux, featuring 12 goals and two clean sheets. Both of their matches in the next round of fixtures are at home, against Brighton and Arsenal, neither of whom has a decent defensive record on the road.

Southampton XI (3-4-2-1): Gunn; Vestergaard, Yoshida, Bednarek; Bertrand, Højbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Valery (Stephens 84′); Redmond, Sims (Romeu 61′); Ings (Long 61′).

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-5-2): Patrício; Boly, Coady, Saïss; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves (Gibbs-White 69′), Dendoncker, Doherty (Traoré 59′); Jota (Costa 87′), Jiménez.

    If Valery (and everyone else) stays fit, this is me for DGW35, rolling the FT.

    Lloris Gunn
    Robertson Dunk Montoya Mariappa Valery
    Sterling Mane Son(c) Jota WardProwse
    Aguero Vardy Jimenez

    BB active // 0.1m ITB // 1 FT

    Not confident of doubling Saints in defence, was forced due to funds. But I think the 2Fts are required to prepare for the last three games preparations.

        Yep
        Why Son © ahead of Jimenez, Aguero & Raz ??

          Kane-less Spurs is a better Spurs. The guy loves to be the hero in the absence of Harry. With Lamela/Alli/Kane injuries, the options of Spurs are limited. I think the HUD rest confirms he will start vs the next 2 PL and 1 CL games.

              Cool.
              I'm on Jimenez atm.

                Solid plan there. Jimmy is a good option, ofc. Played well vs us, could've gotten 1 or 2 if he was clinical.

                1. Amey
                    3 months, 5 days ago

                    Yeah.
                    He blazed one clear chance 😕
                    Cheers mate.

                  Raz rested in CL is a bit too much to ask though.

                      He has played 90, 3 times in last week ??
                      FA cup SF,CL,PL right ??
                      (I'm hopeful 😉 )

              Morning all !!
              Valery flag is annoying atm (should be fine as i heard that was a cramp).
              So, if no Injuries I'll stick with my plan to Roll the FT. (0.0 itb)

              Lloris Foster
              Robbo Taa Duffy Doherty Valery
              Raz Eriksen Son Jota Deulofeu
              Kun Firmino Jimenez

              Do you think it's a good idea ??

                I think I'd save too. No one in particular I'd take off.

                Valery->Bednarek if Valery is declard unfit.

                    Thank you 🙂
                    Thankfully that's an easy swap if Valery is unfit.

                  ya roll FT.

                  better than me...my plan was to get a watford attacker this week in place of Vardy and then get salah next week with saved money...but with duffy,ryan and valery injury news it looks like i need to take hits

                      Thank you buddy 🙂
                      I personally won't take hits to get Defenders. You can swap one of Duffy/Ryan out & hopefully Valery is declared fit.

                  Who would you rather have for the next 2?

                  A. Vardy (whu, ARS)
                  B. Wilson (FUL, sot)

                  The one I don't take out this week goes out for Rashford/Lukaku after 2 weeks.

                      Who's coming IN also important part.
                      In isolation i think Vardy will score more compared to Wilson

                        Deeney's coming in and will also be the captain in GW 35.

                              I know. Dead teams winning again. Says something that I beat the overall avg. by three pts and still got a green arrow. Dead teams killing it this week, active teams crashing.

                                        Anything worth a hit??

                                          Nah, all good. Although maybe Romeu->Redmond?

                                            worth a hit though?

                                            Ive probably missed the boat with redo

                                              Yeah, probably not for a hit. Fair assessment.

                                        Undecided, whether Jimenze or Deeny for DGW

                                        Who is better, strictly speaking?

                                          I think Jimenez.

                                            i think so too but feeling ballsy since i got a 80pts lead

                                        Would you ditch either Aguero or Vardy to Deeney (assuming he makes it through tmr)?

                                        If yes, would you then potentially also bring in Sterling for Eriksen/Pogba for a -4?

                                        Laca for GW 35 only then 36 firmino

                                        Or

                                        Straight firmino and taa for GW 35 until the end of the season

                                              Gomez is fit. Will he play in central or threat for TAA?

                                              1. Amey
                                                  3 months, 5 days ago

                                                  Taa is so creative i can't see him being dropped
                                                  Gomez can come in for Matip. (That's what i think though)

                                                    3 months, 5 days ago

                                                    Lovren is fit and already replaced him against Porto
                                                    If Klopp wants to use Milner in midfield then Gomez will fill in at RB- can see TAA getting a rest vs Porto but likely to keep playing in the league

                                                  Dont think kloop will use gomez this late in the season. He has been out for a while.

                                            Which one?

                                            A) Lacazette and Moura
                                            or
                                            B) Agüero and Redmond

                                            Ryan (wol and tot) -> Foster (hud and SOU) worth the hit (- 4)?

                                            If Sane doesn't play in CL would you rather have Sane (TOT, mun) or Mane (car) for next gw?

                                              Mane

                                              Probably Sane because he has two games. But a week later Mane has a home game against Huddersfield.

                                                Mane more nailed imo too

                                              Still Mane for me

                                              Mane. Even if sane dosnt play ucl he will probably only get 1 game.

                                                    Thanks Amey, you think the big man will play both DGW games?

                                                          Vardy let me down big time this GW 🙁

                                                              He should have scored one 😮
                                                              One v one after Tielemans through ball.
                                                              Blazed it over the crossbar uncharacteristically though.

                                                        Which DGW player should I bring in for my team below?

                                                        Ryan (Button)

                                                        Robertson / Kolasinac / Duffy (Pereira / AWB)

                                                        Mane / Salah / Haz / Pogba / Jota

                                                        Vardy / Jimi (Barnes)

                                                        I'm looking to take out Vardy and or Haz to fund a City asset

                                                        1. Amey

                                                            I won't sell Hazard.
                                                            He should have scored two yesterday
                                                            Vardy to Kun can be good imo

                                                            Keep Haz surely and Vardy arguably. Really not sure this is the week for City premiums - they feel like SGW returns to me.

                                                            Haz has a great fixture and Vardy against that WH defence is also handy.

                                                              Yeah that makes sense actually. I might save then. My competition in mini leagues have city / spurs players so maybe Haz and Vardy can be differentials

                                                            on paper, yes. lets see how much gametime Moura gets

                                                          Dunk Vardy to Deeney Boly?
                                                          Would probably also C Deeney

                                                            someone else over Boly? like Cathcart or SOU defender?

                                                          Going without Man City assets, is it risky?

                                                          On paper, fixtures looks iffy for hauls but they are Man City after all.

                                                            If they got knocked out of CL I think even a triple up is viable.

                                                              Sterling is the only one I like, other feels like just hit and miss and there is not much time left for recovery... I feel someone like Son or Hazard can outscore him

                                                              Mids: Sterling Son Eriksen and Jota

                                                              A: Sterling to Salah or Mane (if so which one?)
                                                              B: Sterling and either Son/Eriksen for Mane and Salah -4...worth the punt even with one less game?
                                                              C: Vardy for Deeney

                                                              What’s the consensus ... is a hit for a mid or forward still effectively free in a double game week because you will get your 2 x 2 points assuming no cards ? 🙂

                                                                If you're replacing someone who doesn't play at all, probably yes - the upsides outweigh the downsides by far.

                                                              Would you get rid of either Sterling or Agüero (for JWP/Ings) in order to fund the upgrades of Hayden, Diop and AWB to Son, Kolasinac and TAA (-8)?
