Wilson and King reward owners’ patience as Bournemouth beat Villa

Goals: Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) | Harry Wilson (£6.0m) Josh King (£6.5m)

Assists: Jack Grealish (£6.0m) | Callum Wilson (£8.0m)

Bonus Points: El Mohamady x 3 Luiz x 2 H.Wilson/Grealish x 1

Bournemouth battled to a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, leaving their hosts still winless on their return to the Premier League. 

An early penalty was converted by Josh King (£6.5m) after Tom Heaton (£4.5m) had fouled Callum Wilson (£8.0m) in the box to put the Cherries 1-0 up, before Bournemouth debutant Harry Wilson (£6.0m) doubled their lead with an outstanding strike.

The Wilson and King combination is a well-known and lethal duo to Fantasy managers, and the two strikers did not disappoint on Saturday. For Wilson, the assist for King’s converted penalty means the striker has now recorded attacking returns in two consecutive matches.

And for King, his well-taken penalty will inevitably add to his confidence as Bournemouth bid to build on their unbeaten start to the 2019/20 campaign with promising fixtures from Gamweeks 4 to 7, though first, they must face reigning Champions Manchester City at Dean Court in Gameweek 3. 

Harry Wilson scored his first goal for Bournemouth on Saturday

Eddie Howe’s side were buoyant and energetic in attack, yet this enthusiasm was poorly managed by central midfielder Philip Billing (£5.0m) who was lucky to remain on the pitch after a number of poor challenges and was consequently substituted by Howe at half-time. 

For Villa, this was a disappointing result after their promising performance against Spurs last week.

Manager Dean Smith will be understandably frustrated that his side were able to deliver such a strong first-half performance in the capital but fall so short of the required standards in the opening 45 minutes at Villa Park. 

There are a number of assets in Villa’s squad who have the potential to offer value in 2019/20, yet investing in a team who are yet to prove themselves in the top-flight and who remain winless is a difficult decision to justify even if there is a wealth of potential value-for-money options in midfield and defence.

It was a mixed afternoon for Douglas Luiz who was sloppy in possession in the first half but scored a wonder-goal in the second

Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) delivered another commanding performance at the heart of the host’s defence alongside Bjorn Engels (£4.5m), whilst a wonder strike from Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) was the highlight of Villa’s afternoon, a superb effort from outside the box to drag Smith’s side back into contention for a tense final 15 minutes in front of a boisterous home crowd. 

An assist for Jack Grealish (£6.0m) will be pleasing returns for the 6% of managers who backed the Villa captain, and with a crucial run of fixtures on the horizon to ensure relegation does not become an immediate concern for the club, he is likely to feature prominently and could deliver further attacking returns.

John McGinn (£5.6m) was relentless in the middle of the park for Villa, but the Scotsman was unable to deliver successive attacking returns to build on his goal away at Spurs in Gameweek 1.

The abilities of McGinn and Grealish are certainly documented, yet whether either of these players can be considered a viable and reliable asset for Fantasy managers given Villa’s volatility in the opening Gamweeks of 2019/20 is a question that remains unanswered.

Grealish got his first attacking returns of the 2019/20 season

Villa’s club-record signing Wesley (£6.0m) had a difficult afternoon against Bournemouth, failing to fulfil his role as a capable target-man to hold up the ball and unleash Villa’s faster attacking options such as Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) and Trezeguet (£5.5m). 

It is too early to make a firm judgement on Wesley after just two matches, but from the perspective of early impressions, the Brazilian is unlikely to be a player that is featuring prominently for Fantasy managers, especially given the value that could lie in Villa’s defence alongside the early attacking returns from Grealish and McGinn in midfield. 

Villa’s next three games – Everton (home), Crystal Palace (away) and West Ham (home) – are of huge importance in their bid to have a successful season and prevent getting dragged into a relegation dogfight, and these will be games that are closely monitored by Fantasy managers in assessing whether Smith’s side represent a squad worthy of investment for the early stages of 2019/20. 

Meanwhile, Bournemouth and Howe remain unbeaten and will look to build on their early successes and continue the integration of players such as Harry Wilson who could yet become a differential pick in Bournemouth’s already impressive attacking armoury. 

Reflecting on the game for us, The Villa View’s Dan Bardell said:

A game where neither team really impressed defensively, meaning budget defenders from both sides came away with low scores.

We need to cut out the errors, goalscorer Luiz at £4.5m obviously bagged but I wouldn’t expect him to be scoring too many, he’s a pure a defensive midfielder.

McGinn and Trezeguet looked our liveliest players. McGinn is going to get somewhere between 7-10 goals this season in my opinion. He will play every week and he just suits the Premier League.

For Bournemouth, Harry Wilson looks a shout, especially with Brooks out. Scored from range yesterday and will probably take his share of dead balls. Fraser looked good as well but his price increase puts me off him.

Billing as a budget midfielder doesn’t look advisable, could have easily been sent off yesterday. Good player, but not for Fantasy football.

    Looking for a Barkley replacement (up to 6.4):

    A) McGinn
    B) Mount
    C) Cebellos

    Anyone else I should be considering?

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      Trossard

      1. Jeanz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        I moved him on after gw1 for Buendia, not sure I can swallow my pride and bring him back in already!

    2. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      A short term. B long

      1. Tcheco
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        C long term******

      2. Jeanz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        The only thing that concerns me about Mount is rotation with Barkley... McGinn more nailed but playing in a weaker team. Tough call.

    3. Evans
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      C

      1. Jeanz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Not concerned by fixtures and Ozil’s return?

    4. Kellz86
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      I would wait on Cebellos -> @Liverpool, Spurs in next two. Maybe just see how McGinn or Mount fair in that stretch both should start with McGinn more nailed imo

    5. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      C at 5.5 is a steal. I've got him in now. Reckon he could finish the season a hell of a lot more expensive

    6. Jammydodger2018
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Ndombele

    7. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Yeh C or b for me, villa don’t seem to be quite there yet.

    8. Smudger’s Dirty Dozen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      A now....C after next two

    9. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Mount for me. Impressive performance by him. He scores that free header and this isn't much of a question. Ceballos is a wait and see for me. Two really hard fixtures and still some returning players. He could be rotated/shifted into a different role.

  2. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Thoughts got 1.9 to burn?

    Pope
    Virgil, Digne, KWP, Montoya
    Perez, Salah, Sterling, Trossard,
    Pukki, Kane

    Button, Dendo, Lundstram, Greenwood

    Like the look of Ceballos but that would leave 2.9 itb?

    Any pointers?

    1. Four Hit Wonder
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      2.9 itb is good for next week.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 19 hours ago

        Perez to Ceballos leaves 2.9 itb......

    2. Jeanz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Yeah similar situation to me. Not sure which budget/mid price midfielder to jump on. Cebellos could be a good shout. Only concern is what Ozil’s return does to him.

    3. Evans
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      I’ll have it if going spare

      If you like the look of ceballos then go for it

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Next week there might be another hot target 🙂

    5. noquarternt
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      What’s Lundstram doing on your bench?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        That’s next week

  3. Collie01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Question of the night, hovering over the WC button. Yay or nay? Current team (on -4)

    Ryan
    TAA, VVD, Digne, Stones
    Salah, Sterling, Barkley, Perez, KDB
    Pukki

    (Lunstram, Greenwood, Wickham)

    Concerns are Barkley, Perez, Stones, poor bench. Also thinking of switching Salah to Mane or even Son as I think Sterling will be set and forget captain for next good few GWs

    1. Apollo Sanchez
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      Nah, you're only a couple transfers away from sorting those concerns, and Barkley/Perez still have the jury out

      1. Collie01
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Thanks, already have -4 though and whatever about Perez, I think Barkley needs to go. His no show today and being subbed before 60mins last week doesn't inspire confidence

    2. Jeanz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Barkley out this week. Perez has a couple of nice fixtures. Hold for now

      1. TheBrazilianRonaldo
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Yeah almost has an assist and goal today. Fine margins

    3. noquarternt
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Which moves did you do that didn’t include losing Barkley?

  4. Tcheco
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Who ends the GW on top?

    A. Jota + Dendoncker

    B. AWB + 5 points

    1. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Be close that, I reckon B

      1. Tcheco
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        cheers puntmaster

    2. Jeanz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      B

    3. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      B just, but all depends on that clean sheet and who could break it.

  5. purple lamborGhini
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    im keeping wilson, ditched Fraser ofc. Aside form city they dont have bad fixtures tbh, and Wilson will deliver returns. Last season he even scored vs City righ afaik.
    I think evryone will be ditching bournemouth attack and thats when Wilson will strike (not the city game, altho he could nab something there)

    1. Evans
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Agree

  6. Lionel Ronaldo
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Cantwell (CHE, whm, MCI) or Dendoncker (BUR, eve, CHE) ?

    I will have to play the one I pick at least for the next 3 GWs.

    1. purple lamborGhini
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      Cantwell with Pukkis form, as long as Pukki keeps firing Cantwell will do well

    2. Jeanz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Cantwell

    3. Jammydodger2018
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Cantwell

  7. chaser123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Is Digne likely to be ok for the next game?

    1. Tactical Focus
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      I haven't heard anything but it didn't look serious

    2. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      I removed him but I feel like I've been a bit premature (Digne, King > AWB, Pukki)

      1. Jammydodger2018
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        He will be fine

        1. Nuno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          Too late now, opted to keep double Pool instead

  9. An Púca
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Wildcard active a few weeks sooner than planned. But had to ditch the deadwood...Guilbert, Rico, 1 of my double Pool defence, Hayden, Vardy.

  10. An Púca
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Any thoughts from Spurs fans on JWP? Is he likely to hold his place for a few more weeks?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 19 hours ago

      It's KWP, seems he might get a few more.

      1. An Púca
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Correct, KWP. He looked light weight yesterday....I'm a bit worried about the returning Spurs defenders

      2. Kellz86
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        agreed, he didn't look out of sorts against City and really has the RB position for the taking. I hope he will produce from a 5.0m standpoint

  11. thepuntmaster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Vardy owners, what are we thinking? :/

    1. An Púca
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      I just ditched him. He'll score plenty no doubt over the season but I expected a lot more based on BR's time there late last season Disappointing 2 weeks

      1. thepuntmaster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Brave, who for may I ask?

        1. An Púca
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          Kane but I'm on a WC. Spurs fixtures are juicy

          1. thepuntmaster
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            27 days, 18 hours ago

            Ah I see, can't blame you there

    2. purple lamborGhini
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      he is trolling but, keep for the next 2. Ditching him for those is mental.
      No matter what he does in those two he is out after that for me and I will jump to a 9.5 mid Son or KDB if im not there already

      1. thepuntmaster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        I can't help but see Sheffield United and Bournemouth and think he could do well. He's just looked so cold tho

        1. purple lamborGhini
          27 days, 18 hours ago

          i done my moves already and not hitting to get vardy out lol, besides the only replacements I want for him are midfielders so its 2 transfer I need. He has to return in those fixtures hopefully, if he doesnt - lol wtf

    3. Trossard or not Trossard
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Keeping him for at least 2 more fixtures. I got more urgent transfers. Might upgrade him to Firmino and free up one of my double defensive Liverpool slots.

      1. Trossard or not Trossard
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        *If he doesn't show up those 2 fixtures

  12. Azzastaan
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 19 hours ago

    Best team in the fpl

    Pope
    Vvd coleman lundstram montoya
    Salah Sterling KDB Martial Cabellos
    Kane or Auba who cares whoever is on fire

    You cannot afford this team if you didnt have sterling and martial from week one

      People are chucking Bournemouth strikers and Moura who are scoring points. Usual early madness

    6. Kellz86
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      WC is pretty common in the first few gameweeks to be honest. Just depends on how badly you need it. No need to knee jerk what can be fixed in 2-3 weeks of planned transfers though

    7. Visionaries

    Tempted by robbo and Perez to lundstram and kdb for free,

    difficulties are
    I want to wait but kdb likely to rise and price me only
    Would mean playing joelinton or King next week before dealing with them

    1. Kellz86
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Robbo/Perez to Lundstram/KDB seems a decent move to me.

      Play King, he's on pks at the very least.

  15. TAT

    Does this look alright after a -4?

    Heaton
    TAA - VvD - Digne - Zinchenko
    KdB - Salah - Trossard - Sterling
    Pukki - Jota
    (Button - Lundstram - Dendoncker - Greenwood)

    Pope Button
    Digne Zinchenko VVD Dunk Lundstram
    Sterling KDB Salah McGinn Ceballos
    Jota Pukki Barnes

    Should I try to fit Rashford in this side?

            Hes not nailed. Correct. Soon as Europe comes he will be rotated

    Pukki and KDB IN
    Vardy and Fraser OUT ???

    1. Lionel Ronaldo
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Not Vardy. Sheffield next.

    2. Le Tigre

      That’s the exact moves I just did!

    Lost patience with Robinson (5.5m) in midfield.

    Who will I get 6m or under? Was looking at Ceballos but tough fixtures.

    1. yakirh
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Maybe Mount

  20. Unconstitutional
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 18 hours ago

    A) Vardy and Barkley to Barnes and KDB
    B) Robbo and Barkley to Dunk or Lundstram and KDB

    Ceballos looking to go up tonight.

    Perez has been awful, and I think that the Sheffield isn’t exactly great considering they will sit and absorb.

    Quick members comparison as well and Ceballos looks like the better bet.

    Someone convince me that the arsenal fixtures are actually not that bad? It seems a no brainier to me.

    1. Manani
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      mount stats looked way better apparently (and I am fairly certain he will start)

      1. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Not convinced by Chelsea whatsoever at this stage, will give them a bit longer. With Willian back in the picture as well, attacking options are plenty (and not all great)

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Mount has better fixtures and looks more nailed on in the short term.

      Ozil's return could change Ceballos' position/potential. Pepe also not starting means things could change.

    3. TheBrazilianRonaldo
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Perez almost had assist and goal today. Leicester just played Wolves and Chelski. When you got Perez surely you thought - he probably won’t light it up first two?!

        Thanks...
        Should I risk de Bruyne not rising so i can see how Martial does?

    Hey guys, is anyone else's FPL app showing an extra transfer available? On the website I have 1FT (which is correct), but app saying I have 2FTs? Assuming it'll still cost me a -4 even if the app is saying it's free?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      App is drunk.
      When you go to confirm, the correct hit value should be there.

      1. Wizard of Özil
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        Even after clicking confirm it still says 2FT (0 points). Worth a try?

        1. TorresMagic™

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years

          No. Use the website.

    2. circusmonkey

      Don't believe the app, people saying it is not the best.

  24. Manani
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 18 hours ago

    Fraser, Perez > KDB, Cantwell
    oor
    Fraser, Perez, Wilson > KDB, Mount/Trossard, Pukki (-4)

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      A is fine. Get Pukki the week after.

      1. Manani
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 18 hours ago

        I got Dendocker though, will mean playing Cantwell every week most likely?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          So? They both are great value.

    Can everyone stop buying Cellabos, I want him but not for a hit and he looks like he will be dearer by the time I buy him.

      Ce buy os
      Couldn't help myself

    A) VVD + Moura -> Söyuncu + KDB

    B) Perez + Wilson -> Martial + Pukki

    C) VVD + Perez + Wilson -> Söyuncu + KDB + Pukki (with room to make Moura -> Martial the week after)

    Have King and TAA

    1. Hansel

      C is for -4

    I'm still seeing Sheffield United fans say that Lundstram is one of their worst players and was terrible all last season..
    Chris Wilder definitely has him in his FPL team

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      Fans of a team often the worse place to seek opinion.

      Blind emotion can easily get in the way of logic.

    2. CroatianHammer

      I think he was joint top for most shots/chances in GW1 of all SUFC players, and it's evident he revels in his midfield home. The former Toffee is loving it so far. Wondering now if Fleck's injury opens a spot for Morrison. Lundy saved my GW2 as it happens. 50 going into tomorrow with Wan Bisaka and Jimenez (3rd sub :/ ) to come.

    3. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He only started 5 games in the Championship last season. Must be safe now though after scoring and one of their other midfielders went off injured.

    4. Gregg Wallace
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 18 hours ago

      How you perform in the championship is more important than how you perform in the premier league apparently

  28. Ron Swanson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I'm doing well thanks to Salah, Sterling, Kane, Digne, Dunk & Lundstrom. It'd be great to nail these 2 free transfers.

    Which 2 would you remove out of Sigurdsson (for Martial), Perez (to a 5.5m ish midfielder) and King?

  29. Oggle22
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 18 hours ago

    Heaton
    TAA VVD Zinchenko Ake
    Sterling Salah Moura Bilva
    King Wilson
    Woodman Kelly Dendoncker Greenwood

    2FT
    VVD/Ake/Wilson to Lundstarm/Pieters/Kane

    Cheers

      I could easily do it even though my team isn't bad. I have 4 more transfers to make than are free to do. Does that justify it?
