Scout Notes

Trend starts to emerge for unpredictable Wilson and Fraser

Perhaps inspired by recent events in popular culture, there was an ensemble cast of points-scoring heroes in Southampton’s 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.

A whole host of popular assets got themselves either goals or assists at St. Mary’s Stadium in a game that taught us plenty about the two sides involved.

With just two matches left of the season, we examine whether the Saints or Cherries have anything left to offer.

Southampton 3-3 Bournemouth

Goals: Shane Long (£4.6m), James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m), Matt Targett (£4.2m) | Dan Gosling (£4.7m), Callum Wilson x2 (£6.7m)

Assists: Nathan Redmond (£5.4m), Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.4m), Yan Valery (£4.1m) | Wilson, David Brooks (£5.1m), Ryan Fraser (£6.3m)

Callum Wilson (£6.7m) continues to frustrate his owners with the unpredictability of his attacking returns, although a trend is starting to emerge. After blanking against Fulham in Double Gameweek 35, roughly 40,000 managers opted to move him on for the trip to Southampton but watched on as he scored 16 points from two goals and an assist. That haul was his third of double-figures in his last four away matches with Bournemouth, in a period that featured three successive blanks at home.

It would certainly seem that Wilson has recently preferred playing on his travels than in front of his won supporters. In the last four away matches, no player in the league has a higher expected goals (xG) than the Bournemouth forward, his score in such fixtures roughly double that of his last four at home. Therefore, perhaps we should expect little from Wilson in Gameweek 37 when Spurs come the Vitality Stadium, before predicting big things from him for Bournemouth’s Gameweek 38 trip to Crystal Palace.

It feels strange to expect something from the Cherries on their travels after a season characterised by poor form on the road. However, in recent trips, they have made some improvements, earning seven points from their last four away games (won two, drawn one) after taking none from the previous nine. Central to that has been Bournemouth’s enhanced threat on the counter-attacking, which has had Wilson at its heart. In similar circumstances to the 5-0 win at Brighton, it was the forward’s pass that set-up Dan Gosling (£4.7m) for Bournemouth’s opening goal of the game, which was also their first shot after going 1-0 down. The central midfielder now has two goals in his last three Premier League outings, which is as many as he registered in the previous 67, although he did go off injured in the second half.

Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) has been of similar frustration to his owners in recent weeks, but like Wilson, it looks as if he has finally produced a trend for us to follow. Again, it’s based around the venue, as the Scottish international has blanked in the last seven home matches, but has attacking returns in three of his last four on the road.

However, Fraser’s credentials for the final two games of the season don’t look quite as strong as Wilson’s, given that he was actually named on the bench for the trip to Southampton. Eddie Howe opted to experiment with a 5-3-2 formation with Jack Simpson (£3.9m) and Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) providing the width from the wing-back positions with a three-man midfield of Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m), David Brooks (£5.1m) and Gosling behind Wilson and Josh King (£6.4m).

Fraser did take to the pitch after just 23 minutes though, as Howe opted to make a tactical substitution with Southampton largely dominating the early proceedings. He switched his 5-3-2 into a 4-3-3, to match Southampton’s formation, by bringing Fraser on for Chris Mepham (£4.5m) and deploying him on the right of the front three. Simpson dropped back into the middle to play centre-back alongside Steve Cook (£4.3m) while Nathan Aké (£5.1m) moved out to play left-back.

“Tactically we weren’t where we needed to be. Chris [Mepham, substituted for Ryan Fraser after 23 minutes] unfortunately was sacrificed for the team. We were much better for the change.” – Eddie Howe

“It was difficult as we suffered two injuries in the game, players were playing slightly out of position and it was a little bit of a disjointed shape. We had to dig deep and we made an early tactical switch as we found it difficult to control the ball. The change enabled us to do that and we were excellent until half time, there was a constant ebb and flow with each team taking the momentum. It wasn’t one for the defensive coaches to take too much from, but both teams really went for it. Both managers had to constantly reshuffle their tactics and from that perspective, it was an interesting one to be involved in.” – Eddie Howe

Fantasy managers were treated to the best and worst of Shane Long (£4.6m) as he opened the scoring for a second successive match. Some managers have been put off the Southampton forward because of his uncertainty of starts, but he has featured from the beginning in each of the last two Gameweeks now, and scored in each of them. Part of the concern had been fuelled by the fact that Ralph Hasenhüttl had generally paired midfielder Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) with one more naturally recognised forward in a front two, usually Danny Ings (£5.4m). However, against Bournemouth, he went with a front-three with Redmond on the left, Ings through the middle and Long on the right, helping them look very dangerous in the first half. Long got his second goal in two matches, putting his side into a deserved lead but should have done better when he hit the post of an open goal after an Artur Boruc (£4.1m) save.

The return of Jan Valery (£4.1m) at right-back was good news both for his owners and those in possession of James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m). The defender got himself an assist for a trademark cross to substitute Matt Targett (£4.2m), but his place in the side freed Ward-Prowse from having to play right wing-back, a role he took on in the previous two matches and failed to impress in against Newcastle particularly. His return to the midfield saw him grab his first attacking return since Gameweek 30. That was his seventh league goal of the season, which means he now has as many to his name in 2018/19 as he did in his previous two campaigns with Southampton.

“It’s a great feeling to score my first goal for the club. It took me long enough but I finally got there! It was a great cross from Yan Valery and I just thought to head it back across goal and get good contact, thankfully I did. I’ve been working on that in training!” – Matt Targett

However, despite some of their defensive assets getting attacking returns, the Saints’ options at the back continue to disappoint when it comes to their primary function. The three goals conceded against Bournemouth means Hasenhüttl’s men still have just one clean sheet since Gameweek 29. In fact, despite the improvements that the Austrian has undoubtedly made at St Mary’s, Southampton have still lost more points from leading positions in the Premier League this season than any other side (27).

“We lost two points which is a pity but today it was more important to be safe. We know we still have a few weaknesses in our game, we have to develop a few things that aren’t perfect at the moment. But that’s the Premier League and today it was a tactical and very intensive game.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Southampton XI (4-3-3): Gunn; Bertrand, J Stephens, Bednarek, Valery; Højbjerg, Romeu (Targett 45′), Ward-Prowse; Redmond, Ings (Armstrong 51′), S Long (Austin 88′).

Bournemouth XI (5-3-2): Boruc; Simpson, Aké, S Cook, Mepham (Fraser 23′), Clyne (Solanke 72′); Gosling (Hyndman 53′), Lerma, Brooks; Wilson, King.

    RP on new article (Cheers Berb)

    Afternoon all

    Depending on Firmino injury news, which move would you prefer to see out the last 2 GWs?

    A) Save this week, 2FT for GW38
    B) Son, Firmino > Sterling, Wilson (-4)
    C) Son, Firmino > Haz, Wilson/ Rash/ Zaha (-4)
    D) Firmino > Wilson/ Rash/ Zaha (FT)
    E) Something else

    1FT 0.4itb
    Lloris
    Robbo, Laporte, Doherty
    Salah, Son*, Jota, Mili
    Kun, Jimi, Firmino*
    (Foster) (JWP, Valery, Yoshida)

    In my cash ML 2 of the 3 above me have Sterling and 2 also have both Son/ Eriksen so I expect them to maybe go for Haz or Pog

    Leaning towards getting in Haz but not having Sterling is scaring me a little now

    Advice appreciated. Thanks

      I think Hazard could be great but rotation or more likely game time management given EL could be an issue. The Pogba move could be interesting but apart from his two penos he has been cack - although may be forced to play more advanced given injuires, couldn't ask for better fixtures and he got two goals and three assists in the reverse fixtures.

      1. donlobatto

        Cheers Ritzy. Yeh I’m basically torn between B and C. Sword vs Shield!!

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      B & C both look good.

  2. fenixri
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    I am really struggling what to do here with 1FT and some cash itb but I think I will just save FT to have 2 in last gw if no injuries.

    Foster
    TAA Kola Doherty
    Sterling(C) Salah Son Eriksen
    Firmino Long Jimenez

    Subs: Ryan, Deulofeu, Valery, Duffy

    My only concern is not having Aguero, do you think he is worth to get for hit?

    1. JoeSoap
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Would be tempted to save. Maybe one of the spurs mids to Pogba, only because of his fixtures.

      1. fenixri
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I burnt one too many times on fixtures->form transfers. Pogba and Manu are awful imo. I would rather have Eriksen and pray he starts after all I have ok bench from bench boost so it's not that big deal if he gets rest.

        Thanks for input

        1. JoeSoap
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Would agree. It depends if you are in a league and whether you are chasing or not.

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Not sure if you need Aguero with Sterling. Do you have enough itb for Firmino & Eriksen to Aguero & Pogba?

  3. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Possible plan. 🙂

    What you think? Crucial last two GWs!

    GW37: Foster+Eriksen >> Guaita+Pogba

    Leaves 1M ITB for next GW to do Gray>>Zaha or Højbjerg>>Redmond or Jimmy>>Rashford

    Ryan
    Laporte. TAA. Doherty
    Sterling. Mané. Eriksen. Son
    Agüero. Jiménez. Gray
    (Foster, Duffy, Højbjerg, Bednarek)

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      That looks reasonable, just some risk with Man Utd assets in my opinion. I assume not enough itb to just upgrade Gray this week?

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Nothing mate 🙁 but 2FTs to play with. Gray and my keepers are my issues this week

  4. JoeSoap
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Any ideas for use of FT or would you save & have 2 for next week? 0.4 in bank.
    Leading cash ML by 53. Their main differentials are Laporte & Ederson though no City strikers (need a Vardy goal). Foster & Gray the weak links this week.

    Foster
    Vertonghen Doherty Robbo
    Son Mane Salah JWP
    Aguero Jimenez Gray
    Ryan Doucoure Duffy Valery

    1. fenixri
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      You are set with saving transfer. Captain Kun

      1. JoeSoap
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Thanks

    2. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yeah, save

  5. Bojaninho
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Still have triple captian left (don’t ask) messed up last week.

    Anyone you would target?

    Man U player this week or next?

    City this week?

    Also Eriksen > Pogba or Bernardo Silva ?

    1. fenixri
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Aguero last week

    2. Tshelby
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      If you want to go United I would wait one more week and look if they can perform against a weaker team. Wouldn't trust them

      1. Would Ed Woodward
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Nah I wouldn't wait, it'd be either now or never for me, gotta risk that Hudds fixture if doing it.

      2. Bob McMayday
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I’d be tempted by Salah or Mane. Might have missed their best game but they are both in form

      3. Carlton_Goal
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Aguero this week or Salah/Mane in 38. Target the home games

      4. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I think the Leics game will be tight. Maybe save till GW38 and see who needs what. Bilva better form but playing deeper, Pogba could be anything!

    3. The Head-Ake
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Vardy + Son + Eriksen out (-4) for :

      1) Haz + Rash + Pogba
      2) Haz + Sterling + Long

      1. The Head-Ake
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        2 FT and 0.3 ITB? * means bench-warmers. Willing to look at other options too 🙂

        Lloris, Ryan*
        Robertson, Cathcart*, Doherty, Valery*, Laporte
        Deulofeu*, Mane, Son, Eriksen, Jota
        Aguero(c), Jiminez, Vardy

        1. caldracula
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Wouldn't get Rash in either, would look at Zaha.

      2. caldracula
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Wouldn't do Son to Pogba for a hit so just the other two.

      3. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Rumours are Rashford out for last two weeks so wait for presser

    4. pjanns

      Lloris
      Laporte - TAA - Robbo
      Son - Jota - Hazard - Mane
      Jiminez - Vardy - Aguero

      (Ryan - JWP - Valery - Peltier)

      1 ft 0,6 ITB

      Any suggestions?

      I think I will be rolling the FT.

      1. pjanns

        • 5 Years

        Is Tadic available for Hudd game? Think he is on 300 points already....

      3. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        A) Eriksen Vardy to Sterling 7.4
        B) Eriksen Duffy to Hazard 3.9 (perma-bench player)
        C) Other?
        2FT, 0.9 ITB, kinda leaning towards B actually! Just means no sterling/salah.

        Lloris (speroni)
        Robertson Laporte Doherty (duffy bednarek)
        Mane Eriksen* Son Pogba (højbjerg)
        Aguero Vardy Jiménez

            Cheers! Risky to go without sterling but you think Haz a good alternative for last two weeks (WAT lei)?

            1. pjanns

              You have Kun as ‘cover’. Cant have Them all. 🙂

      4. Wheato182

        Stones worth a look for city?

        1. Malkmus
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Nailed? Don't think so.

        2. avfc82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          No, only Laporte or Walker from City's defence.

      5. Malkmus
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 26 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 - Eriksen & Boly to Haz & 3.8 def (non-playing) - play Valeri
        C - Eriksen & Son to Pogba & Siggy/Fraser/Moura
        D - Foster to Alysson
        E - Other

        Thinking B as reluctant to lose Son and not convinced on Pogba.

        Ta!

        1. ritzyd
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 26 days ago

          A or B for me. Would want to keep Son, Haz is tempting but could do nothing and may have minutes managed with EL semis either side of 37 but equally Pogba has been pretty rubbish.

          1. Malkmus
            • 7 Years

        Current team

        Foster
        Valery – Doherty – Robertson*
        Jota – Salah – Mane – Son*
        Llorente – Aguero – Jimenez

        Ryan – Duffy – JWP – Dunk

        Thinking of Son + Robertson > Sterling + 4.4 (Taylor?)

        Any suggestions?

        1. Bagpuss
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Not sure I would sell Son for a hit before BOU, but would you C Sterling?

          I have the same Ryan vs Foster dilemma, what's making you opt for Foster atm, just out of interest?

          1. Wheato182
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Arsenal are a different beast at home, don't think either gets a clean sheet but think Foster racks up the save points against Chelsea.

        2. Wheato182
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Or could just do Son > B.Silva

      7. Superbadhine
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Already done my 2ft and wanting some reassuring words.

        Salah > Haz
        Eriksen > Sterling

        Did I do the right thing?

        1. KingOllie
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          yes

          Moves look good but I'd have waited with the Europa League semis on Thurs.

          1. Superbadhine
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            I know it's a bit risky, had the exact amount ready and have a bit of a soft spot for both. Time will tell!

        Would you move Koscielny to

          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Message fail above
          Would you move Koscielny to a DEF under 4.7m in order to fund Hazard. Would be for a hit
          If not, I would need to downgrade Firmino but there’s serious lack of options (own Jiménez and Wilson already)

          DEF: Robbo Laporte Koscielny awb yoshida

                If fit for Barca, does that mean he’s less likely to play at the weekend (2 games in 4 days)?

          Afternoon all. I'm 14 behind in my ML so looking to maximize points as already have a few differentials (Laporte/Aguero/Zaha/Mane).

          1.3m itb & 1 FT.

          Lloris (foster)
          Laporte-VVD-TAA (duffy-valery)
          Eriksen-son-mane-jwp (fraser)
          Aguero-jiminez-zaha

          Any ideas? Happy with my defence for the last two so really trying to find solutions for the front 8.

          Maybe Eriksen to Pogba or Fraser to Siggy? Something else?

          Thanks in advance

            You much do you think Jimenez will go for next season? 7.0?

              9.0. Same as Vardy I reckon

                8 / 8.5 probably (assuming he is with Wolves again next season)

                I reckon 8.5m.

                  8 - 8.5m.
                  ...and if Wolves are going into an early EL campaign as well I won't be going with Jimenez.

                    Duffy Delefeou Firminho >>> VVD Pogba Quaner
                    Would be a minus 8

                      1 month, 26 days ago

                      Not for me. Would wait on Firmino injury news and if he's fit would just do Duffy to a Palace defender for free

                      Not keen on those moves. Wait on Firmino news.

                    What do you think is the best transfer here?

                    Guaita Foster
                    Robertson Laporte Doherty Yoshida Valery

                      Current defence:

                      Robbo, Laporte, Valery (Yoshi, Duffy)

                      2FTs so need to spunk one of them.

                      Dunk -> Jonny and play ahead of Valery?

                          Dunk or Duffy? 😉

                          Either way it’s a good move, highly unlikely you’ll play them in the last 2 anyway

                              or vs liverpool in gw38

                                He’s got Val for that

                                    bringing in jonny for 1 week is a waste of ft

                                      Arguably a higher points ceiling than Valery in 37 and definitely than Dunk

                                      Rest of his team is in good shape

                              Could be a good move. Or Duffy to a Palace defender and play ahead of Valery

                                Depends on utd formation so expect low score from son as the rest of spurs players will be tired do would have to be last choice

                              C) just captain Aguero

                                As commented before Haz all depends how they do in Europa if he gets rested or brought off early this weekend

                                B with Pogba or C. Wouldn't take out an in-form Mane

                                Okey, had some good weeks behind me. Incredible tight in my ML where I´m leader with a couple of points.

                                What would you do with this bunch?

                                Ryan / Foster

                                Aguero / Jimenez / Llorente

                                Thinking of Foster -> Guita, anything else worth doing?

                                    Yeah, but what goalkeeper should play this gw then? Ryan? Arsenal at home seem to play better then away at least

                                    I think save FT too

                                    Looking to close a 12 point gap to ML with a big prize on the line!

                                    Have put my team and my rival’s below. 1FT for this week with 2.7 ITB. The transfer I was thinking of was Eriksen > Sterling. Is this the best move to make considering our teams or would it be better to go Eriksen > Hazard to match him in that position? Thanks!

                                    Me:

                                    Lloris – Foster
                                    TAA – Laporte – Doherty – Duffy – Valery
                                    Son – Eriksen – Mane – Jota – Redmond
                                    Rashford – Jimenez – Aguero

                                    Him:

                                    Allison – Ryan
                                    Robertson – Azpi – AWB – Duffy – Kolasinac
                                    Salah – Hazard – Son – Westwood – Hayden
                                    Vardy – Wilson – Jimenez

                                        I think Eriksen will be rested for Ajax return, but watch tonight game and decide 🙂

                                      B) kun (c)
                                      C) haz (tc)

                                        I'd go Kun, more likely to return and if your rival doesn't have him it's a good differential.

                                        Of course, he may have plans to block you, but he wont know you've got them as you have only just brought them in.

                                      Simple question, Eriksen to Pogba for free? Or roll transfer?

                                        I am leaning towards doing this transfer

                                        Roll FT or consider someone else. Check out Pogba's xGI over his last four away matches.

                                          I hear you, but Eriksen surely will get a rest this weekend, I'm maxed out on City and Liverpool assets and only have the Eriksen cash to spend on a mid (Can't see any other options that are worthwhile other than Pogba)
