Pressure on Wolves assets after Son red card at Bournemouth

A red card for Son Heung-min (£8.8m) in Saturday’s early kick-off has increased the pressure on Wolves assets at 3pm.

The South Korean international was the most-owned midfielder in the top 10k for Gameweek 37 and his score of -2 will have been keenly felt.

For that reason, it will be of encouraging news to managers in the upper echelon of the game that Raúl Jiménez (£7.0m) and Diogo Jota (£6.3m) have both survived rotation fears for Wolves’ latest fixtures.

The two players are in 91.5% and 52.2% of top 10k teams respectively and both start up front against Fulham this afternoon.

In fact, the Wolves team is in decent shape for this match despite some suggestions of changes.

Rui Patricio (£4.5m) keeps his place in goal despite Nuno Espirito Santo’s claims he wanted to give Will Norris (£3.9m) some game-time before the end of the campaign.

Other Fantasy favourites Matt Doherty (£5.4m) and Jonny (£4.3m) are also in the starting line-up.

In the other 3pm match, there is some disappointment for those invested in Southampton players.

Both Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) and James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m) have been named on the bench for the Saints’ trip to West Ham.

However, both Danny Ings (£5.4m) and Gameweek 37 differential Shane Long (£4.7m) both start up front.

There is also a rare start for Fraser Forster (£4.2m), who comes in for his first Premier League appearance since 2017.

Interest in West Ham and Fulham has now reached a relatively low point so their players are unlikely to have much of a say in how Saturday afternoon goes for Fantasy managers.

Michail Antonio (£6.8m) leads the Hammers’ line while Marko Arnautovic (£6.7m), Grady Diangana (£4.5m) and Manuel Lanzini (£6.4m) line-up in attacking midfield.

Fulham are without Denis Odoi (£4.4m) after he suffered a concussion last week, and they continue with their usual front three of Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.3m) flanked by Ryan Sessegnon (£6.0m) and Ryan Babel (£5.6m).

West Ham XI: Fabianski; Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Obiang, Noble; Arnautovic, Lanzini, Diangana; Antonio.

Southampton XI: Forster; Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Bertrand; Armstrong, Lemina, Højbjerg, Elyounoussi; Long, Ings.

Wolves XI: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Bennett; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Doherty; Jota, Jiménez.

Fulham XI: Rico; Bryan, Ream, Le Marchand, Christie; Cairney, Chambers, Anguissa; Sessegnon, Mitrovic, Babel.

                  The whole week I was like keep Eriksen? Trade for Jota, Trade for Pogba. Went reluctantly with Poggers.

                  Poggers (Hud away, Cardiff home)
                  Jota 2 points (Liverpool away)
                  Eriksen 2 points (in form Everton at home with no Son or Kane).

                  Starting to feel a little tingly..

                      That is wolves securing 7th. Nothing to play for now but feel like Nuno will want to show Liverpool what they have got

                                      He'll earn the foul in the penalty area, but it will be Mili who gets the ball in the back of the net.

                                      Really wish I got Zaha in, i think we could really bang some goals in today - Cardiff got to press us and we best counter attacking away from home. Should be a interesting game. Worst case if we lose it means more of a chance Brighton could get relegated. Win-Win 😀

                                        He actually played well once again, no points but played well. Jota was sh*t!

                                      Women’s Cup final on BBC1. Far more interesting than Cardiff v Palace with no players involved 😀

                                      fraser 9 points on bench
                                      Wilson, Son, Jimi, Jota(C)
                                      anyone worse than that ?

                                      Will bet some on New winning tonight. Seriously think Benitez will outsmart Klopp and a depressed pool side..

                                      Guaita starting, Obi-Wan on my bench (not ideal, but no choice). Come on, Camarasa penalty miss!

                                      Now I hope Pogba doesn't start - Doherty first on bench.

                                      Going back to the mental health thing, just all but lost my ML to my rival after it being tight all season to Dedonker, yep Dedonker. I own Jimmy and Jota and he has Dedonker. Nail in the coffin for me

                                      What I am asking is for some alternative hobbies to FPL that have worked for anyone else? Ideally ones that are less frustrating. Obviously there is exercise etc but wasn't sure if anyone here who has had a break has had anything that works for them
