Scout Notes

Doubts remain over United and Chelsea assets for season run-in

Manchester United and Chelsea both have two “blue” fixtures on our Season Ticker in Gameweeks 37 and 38.

Chelsea’s matches against mid-table Watford and – especially – Leicester City are far from straightforward, of course, but United face two clubs in the bottom three in the form of Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City.

Any Fantasy managers considering players from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Maurizio Sarri’s sides would have had a keen eye on Sunday’s meeting at Old Trafford but, save for a promising early start from the Red Devils, there wasn’t a great deal to get excited about as the two Champions League-chasing clubs played out a 1-1 draw in the final match of Gameweek 36.

United’s two remaining fixtures may be reason enough to invest in their players, while Chelsea – far better at home in recent times – next face a Watford side at Stamford Bridge that has conceded more “big chances” than any other Premier League team in 2019.

It is probably fair to say that the primary reason we as Fantasy managers would consider players from either Chelsea or (particularly) United would be less about their own qualities and more to do with the calibre of their upcoming opponents.

We reflect on the action from the Sunday tea-time game in our Scout Notes below and round up the latest injury news.

Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Juan Mata (£6.1m) | Marcos Alonso (£6.2m)
  • Assists: Luke Shaw (£5.0m) | Antonio Rudiger (£5.9m)

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “inconsistency” and tiredness were factors as his side delivered a mixed display in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea.

United came racing out of the blocks in the first quarter of the game, pressing Chelsea high up the pitch and taking an early lead as they briefly resembled the side that excelled in Solskjaer’s ‘honeymoon period’.

The Red Devils were very clearly leggy in the second half, however, with perhaps the physical exertions of Double Gameweek 35 and the demands of their manager’s high-intensity tactics catching up with them.

The concession of an equaliser to Chelsea just before the interval also seemed to be a hammer blow from a confidence point of view.

Reflecting on the game, Solskjaer said:

Today, I was very happy with the start, maybe it’s been inconsistency because we were flying in the first half, creating chances, on the front foot, play and run, and I think everyone was very pleased with the performance.

Of course, we’re disappointed to come in at half-time with a draw. The mood in the dressing room was very good, backing each other, said the right things.

Second half, it was just a scrappy game. Never got the quality from either team, we certainly didn’t get the intensity and quality in our pressing and the ball suddenly started to go two or three touches rather than one or two in the first half.

We were tired towards the end of the game, that’s for sure. We’ve addressed that issue before, we have just got to take one step at a time.

And there were periods today you feel when Scotty [McTominay] comes on we get those legs again, legs going, and we depend on everyone being fresh and fit.

There was a 40-minute period in the second half where United didn’t register a single shot on goal, before substitute Marcos Rojo (£4.9m) forced Pedro (£6.2m) into a goalline clearance in injury time.

Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) epitomised United’s display: powerful and pacy in the opening exchanges but already flagging after half an hour.

The positives for United is that they will face far less taxing tests in the form of Huddersfield and Cardiff and, following the three-game week they have just endured, now have a seven-day break before they take on the rock-bottom Terriers.

The “Huddersfield Effect” can’t be underestimated, while a deflated Cardiff could very well be relegated by the time they entertain United in Gameweek 38.

Certainly, there were positive signs in the first half of Sunday’s match at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata‘s (£6.1m) goal was beautifully crafted by Paul Pogba (£8.5m), Lukaku and Luke Shaw (£5.0m), while Lukaku had earlier spurned another excellent opportunity when played through by the United left-back and Eric Bailly (£5.0m) nodded an Ashley Young (£5.7m) corner inches wide on 28 minutes.

Shaw is someone we had picked out in a top 10k differentials piece yesterday, with United next up against the two lowest-scoring teams in the top flight.

The full-back has shown he can supplement (or compensate for a lack of) clean sheet points with occasional attacking returns this season and his assist for Mata’s goal was his fifth of 2018/19.

The early “big chance” he created for Lukaku helped him to maximum bonus yesterday, despite United being deprived of a clean sheet for the ninth Premier League match in a row.

David de Gea (£5.7m) was again culpable for the goal that United conceded, spilling Antonio Rudiger‘s (£5.9m) shot and unable to stop Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) from converting the loose ball.

Asked about his under-fire goalkeeper after the game, Solskjaer said:

He’s been in the spotlight for the right reasons for so long and now he’s going through a period where he probably feels he could have done better.

I don’t have any worries about him because he’s a strong character.

I’ll sit down and speak to David as I’ve done when he’s played well. He’s not the reason why we’re in the sixth position at the moment.

You cannot say there is any complacency, David is not the type to sit down and be complacent. He is a competitor and he wants to be the best.

David knows he could have done better with the goal, there’s no reason hiding that, but there’s no chance any of us will point fingers because he’s saved us so many times.

Marcus Rashford‘s (£7.3m) barren run continued and the England striker has only one attacking return in the last 11 Gameweeks.

Paired alongside Lukaku in a 4-4-2 diamond, Rashford had more penalty box touches than anyone on show but his one shot on goal was an ambitious 30-yard effort from distance.

The England striker had the lowest pass completion rate of any starting outfield player yesterday and the belief that he can, at times, be selfish in possession would only have gained traction yesterday.

Solskjaer revealed that Rashford had been struggling with a shoulder injury before the game and he was indeed withdrawn just after the hour mark, with the Norwegian saying:

Rashy’s struggled with his shoulder and he came through an hour, but couldn’t do more.

Bailly was also helped from the field with a knee injury and Solskjaer said of the Ivorian defender’s condition:

He will need a scan tomorrow but I don’t think it is the worst knee injury you can have. He will be out for the rest of the season, I don’t think we will see him again before next season.

Pogba began the match on the left-hand side of the midfield diamond and was better than he had been in recent weeks but his deeper role continues to be a deterrent from a Fantasy perspective – the Frenchman didn’t register a single shot or key pass and touched the ball just once in the Chelsea box.

Pogba now averages 3.3 FPL points per match in the last ten Gameweeks and that figure would be even worse were it not for the two goals he scored from the penalty spot against West Ham.

Pogba’s penalty-taking responsibility is still worth considering for Gameweeks 37 and 38, however: Huddersfield and Cardiff have conceded 15 spot-kicks between them this season.

This was another Chelsea away performance that won’t live long in the memory, with the Blues having just three shots on target – two of which led to their goal.

Gonzalo Higuain‘s (£9.0m) stoppage-time “big chance” was the only other time that de Gea was called into action.

Higuain, whose only attacking returns have come against sides in the bottom six, disappointed again and frustrated by repeatedly getting caught offside.

The injured Callum Hudson-Odoi (£4.2m) and the benched Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.2m) were arguably missed, with Willian (£7.1m) and Mateo Kovacic (£5.7m) offering little of note in their stead.

Willian was one of two Chelsea players to be substituted with an injury, with Rudiger – just back from a knee problem – also limping off.

Maurizio Sarri said of his injured players:

I think the most serious situation is Rudiger, with his knee. Willian at the moment is in trouble but I think it is only a knock so we can try to recover him. For the next match in the Europa League, probably Antonio will be out.

The stats may show that Chelsea had more than twice as many shots as United but there were few clear-cut opportunities within them and half came from outside the area.

Sarri admitted that his side had struggled in the first half, saying:

If I look at the first 20 minutes I am very happy [with a point], but if I look at the last minute when we had the goal opportunity, the most important in the second half, I am not happy.

But to play here in Manchester against United I think is very difficult for us and every team. They played very well in the first 25 minutes, we were in trouble. We were in trouble as we did not have the right distances between the striker, Higuain, and the midfielders. We were in trouble to cover the ball to the defenders. The ball was always a free ball, and they are really very happy when they are dangerous when they can have space and attack behind the line.

We were better in the last part of the first half and better in the second half and we didn’t risk anything in the second half, except for the corner in the last five minutes.

A draw is not too important for us as we need to win the last two matches, otherwise, we are at risk with the goal difference I think.

The fit-again Alonso scored his first goal since Gameweek 2 but owners of Leicester assets will be encouraged by Chelsea’s overall defensive deficiencies ahead of their meeting at the King Power Stadium in Gameweek 38: this was the eighth successive away league game in which they have failed to keep a clean sheet.

With Chelsea in Europa League semi-final action this week and next, it will be also interesting to monitor Sarri’s team selections in Gameweeks 37 and 38.

Whether the Blues’ boss would even consider handing Eden Hazard (£10.9m) a breather against Watford remains to be seen, with a top-four place not yet secure but with the visit of the Hornets falling in between that double-header against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Belgian was not at his scintillating best yesterday but much of Chelsea’s play flowed through Hazard and he had far more touches in the final third (49) than any other player at Old Trafford.

Hazard has no goals and one assist in his last nine Premier League appearances on the road and his remaining Fantasy appeal would be largely for Gameweek 37, given that Chelsea are away at in-form Leicester on the final day.

Speaking of Hazard and his future, Sarri said:

I don’t know anything new at the moment. But in this moment for me, it is not really very important. I am very happy with Eden, he is playing very well and he fights on the pitch, so I am really very happy. As I say in every press conference, I want to respect his decision.

Manchester United XI (4-1-2-1-2): De Gea; Young, Bailly (Rojo 70′), Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera; Pogba, Matic; Mata (McTominay 80′) Lukaku, Rashford (Sanchez 65′)

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Rudiger (Christensen 64′), Luiz, Alonso; Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic (Loftus-Cheek 75′), Hazard, Higuain, Willian (Pedro 83′).

    Afternoon gents,
    Best defender at 4.4 or below?
    To allow Erik+Tripp > Sterling+... -4
    Im thinking Dann but is he expected to play last 2?
    Otherwise i ll have to go in Saints territory...

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Think so

      Sakho and Tomkins won’t play again this season. Souaré and Ward might possibly get a run out at some point on the flanks but it’s hard to see Dann losing out in the middle.

    I became ML leader and am looking to play it safe. Dude who's second has Pogba and Rashy and will 95% retain them. They have good fixtures too and though I'm aware this isn't how it is supposed to be done, this move seem alright? :

    Eriksen + Son + Vardy --- Haz + Pog + Rashy (-4).
    Can also do : Eriksen + Son + Vardy --- Haz + Sterling + Long (-4)

    Which should I do? 🙂

    1. barracuda
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Just play your game

    2. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      depends on how significant your lead is, and number of players you have in common with rival's team

    3. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      The guy above me in my league is doing this to me - copying my players even if they are downgrades from his own, just to maintain the gap. Not "how it should be done", but very smart in my opinion

  6. amplifiedAnt
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Squad's a bit behind as I missed the deadline last GW...

    2FT, 0 ITB. TC to play.

    Lloris (Foster)
    Robertson, Doherty, Valery
    Mané, Eriksen, Son, Jota
    Aguero, Jimenez, Wilson
    (KDB*, Yoshida, Dunk)

    KDB + Eriksen > Sterling + JWP/Redmond look OK?

    1. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Very logical moves

  7. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Which combo with 2 FTs?

    A) Salah and Vardy to Hazard and Aguero
    B) Son and Vardy to Hazard and Wilson/Rashford

    Need to make up 17 points on mini league leader who has Aguero and TC still to play. Perhaps should go A as it would give me Salah and Hazard as differentials to him.

    1. b82rz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B with Hazard and Rashford

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      *perhaps should go B

    3. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B)

      Don't sell Salah

    4. iL PiStOlErO
      11 months, 5 days ago

      B

  8. juho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Would you do:
    (1) Vardy -> Rashford; or
    (2) Play Redmond away to West Ham

    Thanks, mates!

    1. Chucky
      • 6 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      am doing 1

  9. Chucky
    • 6 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    had an awful GW 36 so need to bounce back with a huge score... TC GW 37 team to get 100 points hopefully... any good? 😀

    Ryan
    Laporte Kolasinac Vertonghen
    Sterling Son Hazard Jota
    Aguero(TC) Jimmy Zaha/Rashford

    Foster Matip Redmond Valery

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      2 + 6 + 6 + 6 +6 +10 + 10 + 10 + 21 + 6 + 2 =93 points in my estimation

      1. Chucky
        • 6 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        just 7 pointer for kun 😮 shifts TC to hazzo...

        1. Salt'N'Pepe
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          just think if hazard scores hes guaranteed 3 bonus, if aguero scores theres no guarantee of any bonus

          1. Chucky
            • 6 Years
            11 months, 5 days ago

            yes makes sense... hazzo locked...

  10. OneDennisBergkamp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    I could swear Hazard and Lacazette are always rested after Europa League games or am I wrong?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Hazard is sometimes rested in the europa games and plays PL. Prob play both now.

      1. OneDennisBergkamp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        ah ok thanks

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Hasn't Hazard only played once or twice in the EL? You're definitely wrong about him.

  11. Bambi
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Which is more preferable:

    1) Bring in Jota and Jonny for FUL fixture only to bench them against pool last day
    2) Bring in Mane for the last two fixtures

    1. OneDennisBergkamp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      2

      1. Malkmus
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        This

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I would say 1 because its Fulham

  12. Bavarian
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Have 2 FT's:
    Lloris
    Robbo-Doh-Laporte
    Son-Eriksen-Salah-Jota-JWP
    Aguero-Jim

    Foster-Gray-Duffy-Valery

    1-Eriksen-Gray 》 Pogba-Wilson
    2-Eriksen-Duffy 》 Pogba-Shaw
    3-Other

  13. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Before the game yesterday, the suggestions were Son > Pogba.
    That still the case?

    Ryan, Foster
    Robbo, TAA, Laporte, Duffy, Valery
    Sterling, Mane, Son, JWP, Jota
    Aguero, Jimenez, Wilson

  14. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Which one:

    A) Rashford (hud, CAR)
    B) Wilson (TOT, cpa)

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      A

    2. Crazygopher
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      A if fit

  15. Crazygopher
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 5 days ago

    A Trip to shaw free funds for gw38
    B Cath to shaw

  16. Rains of Castamere
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Who's more important to own for the final two fixtures... Salah or Aguero?

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      depends on if you think wolves can beat pool

    2. Malkmus
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Salah imo

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I don't think you're gonna get an unbiased answer to this.

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Do you prefer Newcastle away or Leicester at home?

      Wolves at home or Brighton away?

      Which team do you see piling on the goals?

  17. HollywoodXI
    • 5 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Assuming no injuries during CL games, I plan on a taking 4 point hit this week to do Foster and Duffy our for Shaw and Guita. I think Shaw passed the eye test this weekend and has two good fixtures left to play. Guita / Palace have pretty good fixtures (better than Brighton / Watford) and so I think they’ll get one clean sheet over the next two. Good move?

    1. Gooner Kebab
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I've lined up the same transfers

  18. Drogba Legend
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    What to do with 1FT:

    Lloris
    TAA - Laporte - Valery
    Son - Eriksen - Jota - Mane
    Kun (C) - Jimenez - Firmino**

    Foster - Camarasa - Duffy - Dunk

    A) Firmino > Laca/Vardy/Rashford/Higuain?
    B) Duffy/Dunk > Doherty/Shaw/someone else?

    Will BB this week too as I'm in the semis for my H2H playoffs.

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      more or less the same Starting XI as mine except ive got Ryan + Vertonghen to your Lloris + Valery

  19. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Was 80 points ahead in ML, scored 84 points this week as I forgot to save Mane TC, 2nd place got 122 points and its now just 40 behind.

    Do I try to "shield" and slightly match his squad or just go for it. My team looks like this..

    Foster
    Robbo VVD Doherty
    Son Pogba Bilva Mane
    Vardy Aguero(TC) Jimi
    Ryan Brooks Valery Duffy
    2.4m itb 1ft.

    Rival has Ederson, Laporte, Salah, Jota.

    Otherwise quite similar, any suggestions?

    1. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Brooks & Ryan > Jota and Ederson

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        You should be fine with TC and 40 point lead. No major need to block this GW.

  20. Malkmus
    • 8 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    A'noon all. Any thoughts on this? 2FT, 0.8 ITB

    Gunn (Foster)
    Trent - Laporte - Boly
    Sterling - Son - Eriksen - Jota - Mane
    Kun - Jimi

    Subs - Llorente, Valery, Dunk

    A - Eriksen to Pogba
    B - Upgrade GK
    C - Other

    Ta!

  21. thunder_mike
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    For me Man Utd are maybe the worse team to be playing Huddersfield next week.
    Can’t afford a striker without a either a hit or losing Aguero and not sure I want to do that.
    Which makes Eriksen to Pogba the obvious choice but he looks disinterested.
    And Martial probably isn’t an option anymore, seeing a Sanchez came on for Rashford.

    1. HollywoodXI
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Luke Shaw

      1. thunder_mike
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        Yeah I can afford Duffy > Shaw. That seems sensible.

  22. Crazygopher
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Robo erik son to haz pog shaw
    Yes or no

    1. Drogba Legend
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      For me, probably not. Maybe just one spurs mid to someone.

    2. Crazygopher
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Also thinking erik to pog and either cath/trip to shaw

      Did robo erik son to pog shaw haz for -8. If i had not would of got 1 point from 3 players. I needed 9 points to break even. Got 15. With captain on pog got 17. I wish I had of captained haz instead of pog. Haz was Vc

  23. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 5 days ago

    What would you do with this team in terms of transfers?

    Also who would you TC?

    Ryan
    Doherty Laporte TAA
    Eriksen Son Mane Jota
    Firmino Aguero Jiminez

    Foster Vertonghen Babel Valery

    I dont get it why people are wasting trsfrs on keepers with 2 GW's remaining.

    1. Sotamendi84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Nothing to play for?

    2. HamezMace
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      I guess people who WC'ed late should be pretty well set up for the next two GWs anyway.

        this time of the season results become unpredictable plus only 180 mins to get returns. Makes no sense.

      We have Foster and Ryan with the rest of the team looking ok for the upcoming gameweek.

        exactly...that's the skeletons of the Wc remaining...leave them...there surely has to be a more attacking trsfr to be made?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          My attack looks alright i think:

          Eriksen
          Son
          Mane
          Pogba
          JWP

          Jimi
          Kun

          Wouldnt want to get rid of any of them, unless there are some Champs League injurys.

    I have a 29 point gap with league leader. Both of us have mane salah son and i feel i need to take out one for a diff

    A) salah to haz
    B) salah to sterling
    C) son/mane to bilva or pogba?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      11 months, 5 days ago

      Try A if you think Hazard has one last haul in him

  28. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 5 days ago

    Who do you think scores more this week?

    A) Valery, Pogba
    B) VVD, Wilson
    C) Valery, Hazard

    I have Mane, TAA, Aguero, Laporte. Which looks best; Eriksen to:

    A) Salah
    B) Sterling
    C) keep

    slim pickings in turd striker dept....

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 months, 5 days ago

      yes. Mitro has great stats and may be worth a budget punt

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        I have Babel

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 5 days ago

      To replace who?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        11 months, 5 days ago

        bobby f

        1. TONY123
          • 4 Years
          11 months, 5 days ago

          Is he definitely out?

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            11 months, 5 days ago

            no idea, guess we will see in midweek vs Barca. I can see him missing Barca and then still being a doubt come the w/end.

            1. TONY123
              • 4 Years
              11 months, 5 days ago

              Yeah I hope he'll be involved vs Barca. I'm tempted to keep due to the lack of other options. Rashford the only candidate imo.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 5 days ago

          1 FT? Otherwise downgrade and upgrade in mid maybe? Not many enticing fixtures for strikers in 37 apart from City, Utd and Arsenal, not sure I'd wanna touch any of the options from the latter two.

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            depends on Rashford. I might get one of Pogba/Lukaku.
