Scout Notes

Wolves defence impresses as popular FPL forwards blank

Owners of attacking assets from Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers were left disappointed as the two clubs played out a goalless draw at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

We’ll assess how Messrs Vardy, Jota and Jimenez performed in our Scout Notes article below, as well as looking at the other Fantasy talking points – including a disallowed goal after VAR intervention – from the Gameweek 1 stalemate.

Leicester City 0-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Defences were on top at the King Power Stadium in a match that featured just three shots on target.

Of the two sides’ backlines, it was arguably Wolves’ that impressed the most.

The now-familiar back three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Ryan Bennett (all £5.0m) were imperious, limiting the hosts’ attacking trio of James Maddison (£7.0m), Ayoze Perez (£6.5m) and Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) to just one shot in the box all game.

Boly deservedly walked away with maximum bonus points as Wolves banked a well-earned clean sheet, with Rui Patricio (£5.0m) barely dirtying his gloves and only having to deal with one effort on target from the Foxes – an ambitious 25-yard effort from substitute Harvey Barnes (£6.0m).

The one glaring chance that Leicester had wasn’t even a shot: Vardy failing to make contact from three yards out when Youri Tielemans (£6.5m) fired over a low cross from the right.

The fact that Vardy had fewer touches than any of the 22 starting players in this match, and indeed one fewer than substitute Marc Albrighton (£5.5m) managed in a 14-minute cameo, was a testament to how expertly Boly and co handled the 32-year-old striker and his teammates.

Last week we wrote how Wolves had arguably underachieved on the clean sheet front in 2018/19 given their otherwise excellent underlying defensive stats, and there is every chance that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will crack double figures for shut-outs this campaign on the further evidence of Sunday.

Santo said of the game and his defence:

I think it was a very good game of football. Leicester are a very good team in possession of the ball.

It requires a lot of effort from us, playing together, in shape. We defended well and didn’t allow too many chances to a very good team, and we had some good chances.

Despite the Foxes having 70% of the possession, it was Wolves that looked the more likely to score.

Caglar Soyuncu (£4.5m) earned praise for his display at the heart of the Leicester defence but as a collective, the Foxes’ high backline was exposed on a handful of occasions by a direct Wolves attack.

Brendan Rodgers’ insistence on his side playing out from the back also led to a dicey moment or two.

Raul Jimenez (£7.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.5m) both broke free of the home side’s defence early in the second half but made a hash of their chances, Jimenez dallying before producing a tame shot that was comfortably saved before Jota screwed an effort horribly wide when racing clear of Jonny Evans (£5.0m).

Jota had earlier dispossessed Ricardo Pereira (£6.0m) on the touchline but could only stumble into the turf when bearing down on Kasper Schmeichel (£5.0m).

The Portuguese striker’s shooting boots may have been misplaced this weekend but he was by far Wolves’ biggest threat on Sunday, his now-familiar driving runs from deep causing problems in the hosts’ backline and leading to another chance for the recently reclassified FPL forward on 40 minutes.

Indeed, no Premier League player registered more successful take-ons than Jota in Gameweek 1.

Jimenez was relatively anonymous by comparison and certainly has much to do to convince Fantasy managers that he is worth one million extra than Jota in FPL, even if he does take the odd spot-kick.

Like Wolves’ strike duo, Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) is owned by more than 10% of managers in FPL.

No Fantasy midfielder priced under £6.5m is owned by more FPL bosses and the budget Belgian almost rewarded those who started him in Gameweek 1 with the perfect gift, only for his 52nd-minute goal to be chalked off after VAR intervention following a Boly ‘handball’.

Boly would have been given an assist for that goal, had it stood, and the French stopper had earlier been in thick of the action when a Wolves set-piece caused havoc in the Leicester box.

FPL managers may baulk at the price rises handed out to Matt Doherty (£6.0m) and Jonny (£5.5m) – neither of whom, for once, was involved in the opposition box on Sunday – but Boly, who scored the same number of goals as the Irish wing-back in 2018/19, is an intriguing cheaper alternative.

Boly and his fellow defenders pretty much nullified all four of Vardy, Maddison, Tielemans and Perez, with Rodgers saying of the latter’s debut:

Just going to take that bit of time. Just that little bit of fitness, he’s a little bit behind because he’s missed a little bit of pre-season. But he’s always a threat, he finds the spaces and he’s always looking to link the game and he wants to get in and score. It’s just time with him.

The Leicester boss was perhaps wary of Wolves’ attacking threat, meanwhile, opting to start defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) over Albrighton and roll out a 4-3-3.

Explaining his formation, Rodgers said:

We played what would be 4-3-3 and that would put our front three up against their central defenders. Then, obviously, we looked to control that midfield area.

The threat that they have is that when they win it, they get two strikers through the middle and they spin out off that

I thought, in all fairness, that the players coped with it well. Cags (Soyuncu), who came in, I was really pleased for him.

    Good high scoring week for many, what are the chances of GW2 being complete mare eh ?

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Well I hope Sterling has one!

        1. Wild Rover
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Went with Salah, Auba and Kane with a view to getting Sterling gw3. Painful viewing this week

          1. el polako
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            You know what they say "Swingers at roundabouts".
            Or something like that...

  5. MITHRRANDIRR
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Thinking of Kane --> Auba for next week and then bring Kane back. I know it could be waste of 2 FTs but Auba's record against Burnley is great. A brace again could mean 13 pts vs Kane's 2.

    What would you guys do? Thanks !

    1. Rik Waller
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Factor in the price of 2 transfers being 8pts and think if it's worth that

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Eh?

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Too risky for me.

    3. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Kane could also score a brace and Auba 2 points

      1. MITHRRANDIRR
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Could happen but low probability. In PL Spurs have been dismal against Pep's City.

    4. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      assuming Kane will only get 2 and auba will play....

      1. MITHRRANDIRR
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Aren't we always assuming a player X would outscore player Y when making transfers?

    5. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I don't like this at all

  6. Hryszko
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Anything worth a FT this week? Or Hold?

    Pope

    VVD - TAA - Zinchenko - Digne

    Salah - KDB - Perez

    Kane - King - Haller

    Subs: Button/Dendonker/Hayden/Kelly

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Hold, keep 2FT for GW3.

      Unless you're wildcarding then.

    2. Taa very much
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Lundstram, Palace have Benteke and Ayew...

    2. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years

      Lundstram OOP, played well last game.

    3. mattyrobinson

      Lundy looked good first game

    4. MANGE TOUT RODNEY

      Lundstram

    5. teneighty
      • 4 Years

      Im considering playing Lundstram instead of Zinc.

  8. BelgiumFTW
    • 1 Year

    What to do with Bernardo Silva??

    Should i do:

    KWP --> 4.5
    Bernardo Silva --> KDB

    and take a hit before B.Silvas prices goes down and this won't be possible anymore??

    1. BoomXhakaLaca1

      He'll surely start the next game

    Can you not see the number of transfers your rivals have made anymore?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Nope

    2. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years

      They giveth, and they taketh.

    3. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      no more finance and transfers from rivals indeed 🙁

    4. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I don't like it.

    5. SPorting
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Not any more.

      Team value is hidden now as well so you can't play the guessing game.

  10. Pukki Party
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    KWP to Montoya or hold?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Did you not see the fixtures when you brought KWP in?

      1. SPorting
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Only really got him for 1 and 3, the rest is rotational with 4.5m defenders.

        1. The Wise Owl
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Understand your reasoning, but if the original poster only brought KWP for one game...

          1. BoomXhakaLaca1
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            I did the same with Moura, you would've assumed an easy fixture for spurs plus you have a FT anyway

            1. The Wise Owl
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Me too. Though Moura I can understand, he's an attacking player. KWP on the other hand.

          2. SPorting
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Pretty sure he wouldn't have been so short-sighted. More like chasing points at a lower price range.

            1. The Wise Owl
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              You never know 😀

      2. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        They were playing villa to be fair

        1. SPorting
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Exactly.

        2. The Wise Owl
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          True. You don't buy players for one game though.

          1. Sugar Kane
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 8 days ago

            The audacity to use a free trade, how dare they

            1. The Wise Owl
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              I know right. 😀

    2. Zinedine Kilbane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Probably will do the same. Majority of my team will be ther for next 6 games- I took a short term punt on 2 players. KWP was 1 of them- assumed good chance of return vs villa. Montoya looks ideal

  11. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    When does FFS H2H start? Or have they been swamped and just hope we will all forget about it? 😀 Seems like a big task to manage

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year

      haha yes, was interested in this as well

      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I believe it was planned that it would be organised this week, with last gameweeks points retrospectively added. Would have to be organised after the deadline because the deadline for entry was at the same time as the FPL deadline.

      I'll have a chat to Geoff in a bit and find out, I know a few people (including myself tbf) have been asking about it.

      1. Wild Rover

    Does anyone know what the story with Trossard not playing?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years

      I don't, but I suspect it was tactical.

    2. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      not good enough to play vs watford...brought in for the cup games

    3. SPorting

      Give him one more week then switch to McGinn.

    4. Sugar Kane

      3 months, 8 days ago

      Get rid now

    5. Chungwit
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The Brighton manager was interviewed by Lineker on MOTD. He said it wasn't fair on the old guard to just drop the new players straight into the team - or words along those lines. Giving the long-standing players a chance etc. Looks like Trossard and the new striker (who came on as a sub) will be phased in. Probably won't take long - he should be starting soon surely.

    6. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      March played LWB, think this ruined Trossard's LW role.

    Buendia a better prospect than Mcginn?

    1. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      no

    2. mattyrobinson
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Maybe long-term

    3. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Doubt it

  14. Waylander
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I got Bernardo Silva in as I thought he would start with Sane out. Seems like he is still prone to rotation so is it worth getting rid for Martial?

    1. joeyc_3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Thinking the exact same thing. Man Utd centre forward for 7.5 over B Silva who now seems like a rotation risk is making sense to me.

    2. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      BSilva will play 85% of the games...Guardiola favourite...wasn´t 100% phisycally last game plus Cancelo needed some company to settle in

      That's a lot to decide from one game against a very good Wolves team who were well upto speed.

      1. MITHRRANDIRR

        Wolves team who played away at Armenia on Thursday night.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          That was exactly my point. Wolves have had lots of competitive action meaning their players are well upto speed. That was Leicester's first real game in 2 months.

    Gunn (LIV, bri, MUN) free transfer to:
    A) Ryan (WHU, BRI, mci)
    B) Pope (ars, wol, LIV)
    C) Heaton (BOU, EVE, cry)
    D) Henderson (CRY, LEI, Che)
    E) Keep the keeper

    1. mike09
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Pope

    2. MANGE TOUT RODNEY
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      How about Adrian?

      1. SoccerBoi69
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Own TAA VVD Salah... 🙂

  17. BoomXhakaLaca1
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Salah or Auba captain next week is the big one now

    1. Come on you Kante
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Salah

    2. Gylfi feet got no rhythm
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Indeed, after seeing Westergard play, I'm minded for Salah.... He is surely the worst defender in the league.

      1. BoomXhakaLaca1
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Was he that bad? Didn't see the game

        1. Gylfi feet got no rhythm
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Everytime I see Westergaard he's awful, Yoshida must wonder what he's done...

    3. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah... I am going Salah

  18. Carroll to the rescue
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    How does this team for GW2 look?

    Pope Adrian
    TAA Digne Zinchenko Rico Lundstram
    Sterling Salah Perez Martial Dendoncker
    Jota Kane Greenwood

    Thinking about bringing Pukki in for Jota; any suggestions?

    1. SoccerBoi69
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I've debated the same move. Think another weeks info could be worth waiting for. If Rashford scores big again, Mahrez starts etc etc yada yada yada.

  19. Come on you Kante
    • 1 Year

    Who would be the best replacement for Allison set and forget?

    1. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      ederson

    2. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Pope. 150 point season on the cards, again.

      1. mike09
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        This

    3. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Adrian until Allison is back

  20. rdpx
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    A. Vardy > Rashford
    B. Abraham > Pukki
    C. Hold

    1. Farke Sake!
      3 months, 8 days ago

      B

  21. Big Ronnie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Had Martial in most of my drafts but changed to Fraser. Swap them or save and reassess after GW2?

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Save

    2. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Save...For some reason/logic you got Fraser....give it a chance

  22. Pinball Wizard
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I am thinking to get my first hit of the season:

    Robbo > 4.5 (also have TAA)
    KDB > Sterling

    I know it looks like a desperate move but double Pool defense does not seem as good to me like before and not owning Sterling is killing me.

    1. Invincibles
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      4.5 should be Dunk

    2. Shaw must go on
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      why Robbo and not TAA?? not so rotation and better on defense

      1. Pinball Wizard
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        It’s a good point. Actually I started with both because I cannot choose between one of them.

    3. mike09
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I would transfer out TAA instead of Robbo.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        On what basis? Stats show that after Salah, TAA is Liverpool's best creator (iirc). This whole notion of him being defensively suspect has been blown out of proportion. Robertson has the same lapses from time to time too, but I guess it's perception of being caught of position. Although I do understand the threat of Gomez playing RB is a potential factor too.

    4. MikeBravo
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      You got Salah?

      1. Pinball Wizard
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yes

        1. MikeBravo
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          You've got three top players from Liverpool then - taking a hit to transfer out a top Liverpool player seems like unnecessary panic after one game. Stay calm. At the end of the season, you'll wonder what you were thinking! Get Sterling without taking a hit.

  23. tjostolv

    what sort of price movements can we exp this week?
    Rash, Martial both +0,1? everyone already owns raheem and mo so wont change much?

    1. Pinball Wizard
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Ederson should go up and Alisson down

  24. Invincibles
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What to do here, if anything?

    Heaton
    TAA VVD Digne Zinch
    Salah Sterling Siggy Perez
    Wilson Jota
    Subs: DD Greenwood Lundstram Button

    1. HAMMERTIME107
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Heaton to Adrian

  25. Lebowski85
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Fraser to Martial fo a hit? It's a week earlier than planned but I'm concerned about price rises

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Fraser has Villa next.

      1. Lebowski85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        This is true. Villa looked decent for 75 mins though....

        1. The Wise Owl
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I say give Fraser one last game.

    2. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Why a hit, they are the same price?

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Tu parles français?

        1. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Español

      2. slove
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I imagine he has already used his free transfer on some other move

        1. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Hah. The kneejerk is real!

    3. Fire Chief Moe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Patience.

  26. clempro
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Ederson rising tonight?
    Worth doing Lloris -> Ederson for a FT?
    Only other City defensive coverage is Zinchenko, how likely is he to keep playing?

  27. rdpx
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Vardy & Sharp -> Pukki & Rashford

    -4

    ?

    1. The Wise Owl
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I say just do Vardy to Rashford.

      1. rdpx
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I'm leaning to that!

  28. MikeBravo
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Sterling, perma-captain. No Salah, no stress.

    1. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I'm doing it from GW3, great run of fixtures for City

  29. EgyptianKing
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Mates, considering doing Moura to Martial this GW. Team would become:

    Ryan
    TAA, Robertson, Digne, Chenko
    Salah, Sterling, Martial, Perez
    Wilson, King

    Button, Lundstram, Greenwood, Dendoncker

    Seems good?

    1. LangerznMash
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I fancy Lucas to get the better of Zinchenko and register an attack return.

  30. Burger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Need to get Sterling in, would you do these for -8?

    Robbo, Bilva, Vardy -> AWB/Zinchenko, Sterling, Puki

    ?

    1. LangerznMash
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I certainly would not do that.

    2. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Absolutely not
