Scout Notes

Two blanks for Jimenez in Gameweek 35 but Wolves return to form

If there was an FA Cup semi-final hangover in recent displays against Southampton and Brighton, Wolverhampton Wanderers were back to something approaching top form on Wednesday evening.

Wolves’ record against the “big six” this season has been impressive (only three defeats in 11 league fixtures, plus wins over Manchester United and Liverpool in the FA Cup) and Arsenal became their latest scalp at Molineux last night.

More importantly for Fantasy managers, Wolves’ assets looked to have rediscovered some of their swagger heading into the season run-in.

Watford are next up for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in Gameweek 36 and we discussed the Hornets’ defensive frailties in our Scout Notes article yesterday.

An appealing home fixture against Fulham then follows although curiously, Wolves have only won one of their five league matches against the sides in the bottom three in 2018/19.

A trip to Liverpool rounds off their season and, while daunting on paper, Wolves’ record against the top half-dozen clubs could be significant at Anfield – especially if nerves are a factor for the Reds on what could be the decisive day in the Premier League title race.

Arsenal’s dismal away form continued, meanwhile, and there will be plenty of Fantasy managers deserting the Gunners’ assets given that they are on the road twice in the remaining three Gameweeks and are in Europa League semi-final action around those fixtures.

We discuss last night’s match further in our Scout Notes article below.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Ruben Neves (£4.9m), Matt Doherty (£5.3m), Diogo Jota (£6.2m) | Sokratis Papastathopoulos (£5.1m)
  • Assists: Jonny (£4.3m) x2 | Granit Xhaka (£5.2m)

Raul Jimenez (£6.9m) emerged from Double Gameweek 35 with nothing but appearance points after a second successive home blank on Wednesday evening.

Jimenez had twice as many shots than anyone else on show at Molineux but it was simply one of those off-days in front of goal for the Mexican striker, who attracted 19.4% of the vote in our Gameweek 35 Captain Poll and who was handed the captaincy by 22.08% of the top 10,000 FPL managers.

Jimenez twice blazed wildly off-target from the left-hand side of the Arsenal box and could only shin over a Willy Boly (£4.7m) flick-on from close range as the former Benfica striker failed to test Bernd Leno (£4.9m) with any of his four efforts.

A frustrating night was compounded when Diogo Jota (£6.2m) was unable to control Jimenez’s fizzed cross with just Leno to beat, depriving the Mexican’s owners of even a consolation assist.

Those who invested in Jota for Gameweek 35 had a happier evening, as the Portuguese attacker registered his 15th attacking return of the season (14 of which have come in his last 17 appearances) by scoring Wolves’ third goal just before the break.

While there was an element of fortune in that the goal came from Jota’s only effort of the evening and that Leno ought to have saved the shot, the Portugal under-21 international deserved any slice of luck that came his way.

Jota was outstanding all evening, registering more than three times as many touches as Jimenez in the final third and attempting more take-ons than any other player on show.

Arsenal’s defence struggled to handle the “out of position” FPL midfielder and Jota’s goal came about when he pounced on a loose pass and left Sokratis Papastathopoulos (£5.1m) for dead before firing low under Leno’s grasp.

The potentially good news for owners of Jota and Jimenez is that both players were substituted in the final quarter of an hour of yesterday’s game, with Santo perhaps preserving their legs for Saturday’s trip to Vicarage Road.

While there was no word from the Wolves boss last night on possible rotation this weekend, it is worth reminding ourselves of comments he made in March about a three-game week:

“When you have a tough cycle of games in a week, the third one is the one we believe requires some attention.”

Nuno Espirito Santo speaking after the Gameweek 29 win over Cardiff City.

Matt Doherty (£5.3m), Jonny (£4.3m), Ruben Neves (£4.9m) and Joao Moutinho (£5.2m) were all rotated against Cardiff in Gameweek 29, so we might expect to see a handful of changes at Vicarage Road on Saturday given that Wolves’ next match takes place less than 72 hours after their game against Arsenal.

There are only three fixtures left of the season, of course, so the counter-argument to that would be: what would Santo be resting his players for?

Out of the FA Cup and with a three-month break approaching, there isn’t a greater goal (other than Santo giving his squad players a chance to impress) that can be aided by wholesale rotation at Watford.

Doherty and Jonny were both substituted against Southampton and Brighton, of course, so the hope for owners of the two marauding wing-backs is that they have had sufficient rest to line up again at Vicarage Road this weekend.

There was more joy for the pair against Arsenal.

Jonny won the free-kick that Neves subsequently converted and then supplied the teasing cross that Doherty nodded in to put Wolves 2-0 up, with both players leaving Gameweek 35 with double-digit hauls.

Perhaps surprisingly, Jonny’s two assists were only his third and fourth attacking returns this season. The wing-back would have completed a hat-trick of assists, too, had Jimenez not wasted his pass in the second half.

This was Doherty’s first league goal since Gameweek 16 and long overdue, given that he has had more shots in the box than any defender bar Shane Duffy (£4.8m) in the subsequent 19 Gameweeks.

This was a curious match, with Arsenal enjoying over 70% of the possession and having started the game the better of the two sides.

Speaking after the match, Santo said:

It was a good performance against a tough team. First half was very good, second half not so good, but very well played. If we look at all the game I think the boys worked very hard.

At the beginning of the game it was difficult to recover the ball, Arsenal have quality players, created some problems and we were able to break and the first moment we broke we were lucky enough to have this moment of talent and quality of Ruben’s.

From there on I think we controlled the game better, it put us on the front foot, so well played and it’s fantastic from the players, credit to them, they made a fantastic performance.

For all their dominance of the ball, Arsenal created little of note.

Sokratis headed in Granit Xhaka‘s (£5.2m) 79th-minute corner to deprive the home side of a clean sheet but that was the Gunners’ only shot on target, with Alexandre Lacazette (£9.4m) barely given a sniff by Wolves’ impressive three centre-halves.

One wild swing at the ball after some good work to get into the home penalty box was Lacazette’s only serious attempt on goal, with the Frenchman starved of help from the disappointing Henrikh Mkhitaryan (£6.7m), Mesut Ozil (£7.9m) and Alex Iwobi (£5.4m) behind him.

Unai Emery said of Arsenal’s lack of goal attempts on target:

They are a good team, with good structure. Defensively they are very strong and they are doing a very good season because they have good players also.

We tried but didn’t take chances to score. I think one reason is because they worked very well defensively. We needed to be more calm and we know here it’s going to be very difficult, but we need to respect them with their moments and to be calm in the 90 minutes, impose our ideas and result against them.

Really, they were better than us and they worked and played more strongly in their gameplan and they beat us.

Lacazette led the line alone in Emery’s 4-2-3-1, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.9m) not part of the match-day squad.

Arsenal explained that the Gabonese forward had undergone a “small sinus procedure” and will now be assessed ahead of Sunday’s match at Leicester.

The dangers associated with owning an Arsenal asset were evident again last night, with Emery not only changing shape but seven members of his starting XI.

Sead Kolasinac (£5.0m) was one of the players to drop out and only emerged as a late substitute, with Arsenal chasing the game.

There was no Shkodran Mustafi (£5.4m) either after the German’s horror show against Crystal Palace but there was no real improvement in Arsenal’s defending, with even Leno having a rare off-day and culpable for two of Wolves’ goals.

Emery was asked about his goalkeeper after the match but said:

I don’t want to speak individually about the players. I think we need to continue together and not look at one player or the defence or attacking players like a group.

We need to think to recover our confidence and to recover our good moments for when we were in the worst moments. We can recover and take possibilities like we have now. Really, the last two matches we lost good options but the last three matches we are going to play in the Premier League we can and we are going to play our possibilities.

Those hanging onto Leicester assets such as Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) would have been further encouraged to see such shambolic Arsenal defending, with the Foxes hosting Arsenal on Sunday lunchtime.

Only five clubs have allowed more “big chances” than the Gunners when filtered by their last six matches, with Emery’s side also sitting in the bottom half of the table for shots in the box and efforts on target conceded during that time.

Arsenal’s shut-out at ten-man Watford in Gameweek 34 remains their only clean sheet away from home in 2018/19.

Wolves XI (3-5-2): Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Jonny; Moutinho (Gibbs-White 90′); Jimenez (Adama 82′), Jota (Cavaleiro 78′).

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Torreira (Guendouzi 59′), Xhaka; Iwobi (Nketiah 71′), Ozil, Mkhitaryan (Kolasinac 59′); Lacazette.

    How’s this looking? Thanks 🙂

    Ryan
    Doherty. TAA. Laporte
    Eriksen. Son. Mané[C/TC]. Sterling
    Gray. Agüero. Jiménez
    (Foster, Duffy, Højbjerg, Bednarek)

    1. TheDragon

      Looking lovely - if only Eriksen could become Salah though

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        He could. But it would need to be a Kun>>Rashford move and a -4. Do you think it’s worth it to put the TC on him?

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          This is the ultimate question which I’m still searching for enlightenment on. Would want aguero back next week too so would be another -4

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I’m thinking it’s not worth it

            1. TheDragon
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 24 days ago

              It all depends what you think Mane will score.

              If mane blanks and TC
              3 x 3 = 9

              Salah hattrick = 21 x 3 = 63 Profit: 54 points.

              Salah goal = 8 x 3 = 24 Profit: 15 points

              Salah assist only = 6 x 3 = 18 Profit 9 points

              Conclusion: if you are using the TC chip, Salah only has to get 1 assist more than Mane to make up the -8 of getting him in this week and getting aguero back next week (assuming Erickson and aguero score similar to Rashford/ agueto replacement and Mane)

              1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                I think the Agüero vs. Rashford is the key to this decision

          2. Would Ed Woodward
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Hat-trick for each of them.

      2. ZICO SENNA
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        He already has Mane which is the better option imo

    2. Jones Bond
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Do you know any news on Schar for the weekend Rafa?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Not yet

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Back in training I hear

  2. dee_top
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Worth it?
    A) Sterling + Duffy to Mane + VVD for -4
    B) Sterling to Mane for free
    C) Vardy to Firmino for free

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      C if any. Don’t like A or B

    2. Ajaxeeding
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I would want to get rid of Sterling.

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I hope that’s a typo... if not, why?!

        1. Ajaxeeding
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          That certainly was a typo! Sorry.

        2. Ajaxeeding
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 24 days ago

          This week I’m doing Eriksen and Duffy to Mané and Yoshida this week (for free) then Vardy to Firmino next week (for free). Mainly because I want Vardy for ARS.

  3. ZeBestee
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Salah is only 22% owned by the top 10k.

    If he does very well, and you TC'ed him, expect bumper OR rise.

    1. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      If he blanks and mane does very well expect to never see the top 10k again this season

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Mane is 53% owned, and will rise quite a lot.

        Salah is the differential. Get it right and you are boosting your rank.

        1. TheDragon
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          I agree my point is the flip side, get it wrong and you won’t have a rank!

    2. DA Minnion
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Got both Salah and Mane. Captaining Mane. Just in case anyone was wondering.

      1. TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        This is a wise approach from an ownership perspective but I wouldn’t be able to resist TC Salah

      2. n14mul
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I got both still undecided. You think mili will play?? If not Salah on pens??

    3. Mo Mané Mo Problems
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Well, that was the top 10k at the start of the last round.

      He will be 40%+ owned imo.
      Mane will be 65%+.

      Most will captain Salah over Mane if they own both.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I think most will captain Mane. They are in the top 10k for a reason.

  4. Bunk Morrisonland
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Who would you start:
    A Jimenez (wat)
    B Lacazette (lei)

    Yes I know, leaving money on the bench and all that but after bb all my attackers are good.

    1. Ajaxeeding
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      A

    2. THE N00ber
      1 month, 24 days ago

      B: Arsenal's season depends on scoring more away from home.

    3. Big Col
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      B

    4. Bunk Morrisonland
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Cheers. I am leaning towards B, although I can see Watford - Wolves being a goalfest. I guess both matches can be.

  5. unitednations
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Cant decide whether to bring in a pool defender or do Eriksen > Mane...or save FT

    Looking ahead, i think i can line-up as follows till end of season
    Gw36: Foster (WOL) • Laporte (bur) • Duffy (NEW) • Doherty (wat).....bench Kola (lei) Valery (BOU)
    Gw37: Patricio (FUL) • Laporte (LEI) • Doherty (FUL) • Kola (BRI).......bench Valery (whm) Duffy (ars)
    Gw38: Foster (WHM) • Laporte (bri) • Kola (bur) • Valery (HUD)...........bench Doherty (liv) Duffy (MCI)

    So my defence looks good for gw36/37 with a decent 1st sub. Gw38 looks sticky as my bench defenders have tough games. SO, in light of this, does it make sense to get a Pool defender? or am i better off in doing Eriksen > Mane or even save FT

  6. Dave Dreamer
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Will Trippier start this weekend with Champions League around the corner?

    1. aapoman
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Most likely not with the rotation he has faced

      1. n14mul
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Agree

        1. Dave Dreamer
          1 month, 24 days ago

          yeah think i will go to VVD

    2. Bunk Morrisonland
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      You never know with Trippier. That's why he is a poor FPL asset compared to other defenders in his price range.

  7. aapoman
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Don't really know what to do. Most likely need a Liverpool player so I'm considering Lacazette to Firmino or downgrade Laca and upgrade Eriksen to either Salah or Mane. Any tips appreciated!

    Ryan Foster
    Robertson Laporte Doherty Masina Bednarek
    Sterling Eriksen Son Jota Deulofeu
    Aguero Lacazette Jimenez

    1. Captain Kakaroto
      • 1 Year

      I would do the first 1 assume that be requires hit points

      1. aapoman
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Yeah Laca to FIrmino would be free but the others require a hit

    c) mane + vardy

    1. Ajaxeeding

  11. CAPTAIN_WALES
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Right a different question for you here guys, as the majority of you won't be in the position of still having a bench boost:

    A) Activate BB this week with Boruc, JWP, Wan-Bis & Chilwell coming in, and save TC for another GW
    B) TC Salah/Mane this GW

    The reason I ask is because I have gone through the rest of the weeks to see where BB can be best used and it seems this week... the other GW's look absolute trash for BB with the players that I have at the moment. Plus say if Salah/Mane get 10-12 points this GW I would say my BB could easily get that or better as well, which will be better than using BB on a GW where they might only get 6 points between them all.

  12. Gunner Boy
    • 4 Years

    Pick one to play:

    A- Duffy (NEW)

    which is better?

    A) Firmino & Eriksen

    B) Rashford & Sterling -4

    1. THE N00ber

      For GW36. A.

    2. aapoman
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Eriksen most likely won't play because of UCL and ManU haven't scored a goal from open play in 6 matches so both options are bad

  14. Stoichkov#8

    1 month, 24 days ago

    Ederson, Ryan
    TAA, xxx, Jonny, Bednarek, Kiko
    Salah, Son, xxx, Jota, Hojb

    Which 3 to bench (must start minimum 2 defenders)?

  16. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Ryan
    Robbo Valery Kolasinac
    Eriksen Son Mane Jota Sterling
    Jimenez Kun
    Gunn Llorente Doherty Cathcart
    1.1itb 1ft
    A) Kola to TAA
    B) Kola to PVA or Laporte
    C) Eriksen and Llorente to Firmino and Babel (-4)
    D) Sterling and Kola to Salah and 4.4 defender (-4)
    E) Kun and Eriksen to Salah and 8.8 forward (-4)
    Just scouting your opinions, I'd more or less wildcarded myself into picking A, but would like some views. Will TC one of Mane/Salah. Have a shocking rank if that helps (outside top 100k).

    1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Ugh. Format didn't come out well. Sorry.

    2. Bunk Morrisonland
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      A is a great move on its own. I do think Salah is the best captaincy option but there isn't much between him and Mane. I don't like options B-E, you will be selling good players in al scenarios.

      I think I'd just get TAA and TC Mane.

      1. The_Fish
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Agreed

        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers Bunk. I've been thinking that for a while myself. I feel like I need to risk something too as I'm poorly ranked. Might take a few punts 37-38.

    Many are considering Salah/Mane to bring in/C/TC.

    Few are looking at Firmino. These are the type of games he does very well. Anyone considering bringing him in?

    1. Numb

        Yes, end of season, right time to take punts. Either works a treat, or be a complete failure.

      What types of games does he do well in?

      I am considering him

      I thought he was supposed to be less of an option versus 'weak' teams? Someone posted something on this earlier

        Form has been good recently, Hudds aren't going to be attacking quite a lot. I expect him to be the focal point in this game.

    4. Pompel

      Brought him in for Deeney, at expense of KDB instead of Sterling. Kind of regretting it now. Looking at stats, Salah + Mané is the better combo, although more expensive ofc

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Won't regret having him vs Hudds at home.

        1. Pompel

          Here's to hoping - at least he should be a differnetial

      My plan was always Firmino in 36 for Vardy, but Arsenal being rubbish and Vardy's form means I'm keeping him and bringing TAA in.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        TAA is almost a no brainer if you think he starts.

    6. Becks

      Have to get rid of Aguero to get him in for a -4. Don't think it's worth it even though Liverpool have two home games and ManC two away.

    7. teneighty

      Own Firm and will get Mané. VVD is my third Pool-player.

  20. DAZZ

    Am i foolish to TC Firmino for a punt? Only one in my top 5 that owns him, and im seriously chasing :/ nothing to lose

    1. kime67

      No. Time to take risks

    2. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      It would be higher risk/ reward to get Salah in for a -4 in my opinion

    Any obvious changes needed here?

    Lloris
    Duffy, Robbo, Laporte
    Eriksen, Jota, Mane (c), Son
    Jimenez, Vardy, Aguero
    ---
    Foster, Boly, Valery, Doucoure

    Duffy to TAA perhaps?
    Eriksen and Doucoure to Sterling and McNeil (-4)?

  22. dee_top

    The best move:
    A) Vardy to Firmino
    B) Eriksen Jota to Mane Deulofeu for -4
    C) Go without Liverpool attacker

    Current rank is 12,294, DGW34 & DGW35 were very disappointing, used the WC in 34 and BB in 35 and yet lost almost 5k in the rankings. Got most of the 50/50 calls wrong. But I need to look ahead now : 3 Gameweeks left and less than 10 pts separating me from my season target (top 10k). Any help is welcomed.

    Lloris Foster
    Robertson Boly Cathcart Valery Bednarek
    Mané Eriksen Son Jota Doucouré
    Aguero Vardy Jimenez

    1FT, £1.1

    I'm really scared of going into the final games without Sterling. But I'm not sure GW36 is a good time to bring him in, since I'll captain (or triple captain) Mané anyway. Plus I'd have to take a hit ditching Eriksen and Vardy to fit Sterling when both of them have decent fixtures. Will probably wait for GW37 to take that hit. Then the only good move I see for this week is upgrading my defense by tripling up on Liverpool with TAA (Cathcart out). Sounds good ?

    There are only 3 reasons for people to captain Mane over Salah:

    1) non-owner
    2) can’t afford
    3) delusional

      There is a 4th reason

          No, but that as well maybe

    2. Winter_is_coming

      Not so obvious, because Mane outscored Salah a lot of times already this season, particularly at home
      Even if this week Salah outscore Mane it won`t be the case when: "I`m said it 100 times, only idiots captain Mane".

    3. ZeBestee
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Mane the better player out of the 2 this season. Salah is Salah but in all honesty, he is been average this season, and I am a fan.

    4. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ML rival has Mane and not Salah, so Mane captain is a good shield as I'm 18 points in front. Also means I keep Vardy instead of DCL and can get TAA for free.

    Need more comment guys - For the next 3 fixtures would rather have: A. Dilva+Kola+Pog
    B. Mane+Yoshi+Pog
    C. Mane+Yoshi+Dilva

    Ive got no pool attack and have Sterling +Aguero. Think Beside this GW pool attacker is not a must with new and wol

    1. Becks

      B

    2. tafrère

    Opinions?

    A) KDB to Mane
    B) KDB, Trippier to Mane, TAA -4
    C) KDB, Pogba to Salah, Redmond -4
    D) KDB, Aguero to Salah, Zaha -4
