Scout Notes

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.

    Just checking.
    If I did a hit and then wildcard later on in the week - no cost/minus points right?

      Correct, hits are wiped clean like a dirty bum

      2FT 0.5itb, anything you’d recommend?

      Ederson
      Digne VVD Robertson Zinchenko
      Salah Sterling Perez Moura
      King Jota

      McGovern Dendonker Wickham Rico

      A. King to Pukki (don’t like his fixtures)
      B. Simply do Rico to Lundstram (carry 2FT)
      C. Moura to Martial (Martial coming into good fixtures)
      D. Other

      Yesterday with my 2FT’s I did Salah, King > Sterling Pukki with a view to get Salah back in for Kane GW5 against Newcastle at Anfield. Wise choice or rash decision?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Time will tell.

      2. Snevitz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        I'd be more on board with this plan if Kane had a bad fixture week 5.

        1. Irbox ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Probably WC by then anyway 😎

          1. Snevitz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            There is that, I used mine already...as usual.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Much prefer Sterling + Pukki, good moves especially with wildcard in back pocket...GL!

    6. TeddiPonza
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Would you do Perez and Wilson to Martial and Pukki for free? (Later next week of course)

      1. tyron
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Would prob keep perez for upcoming fixtures at least

      2. AF90
        • 7 Years

        Yes 100%

    7. Dynamic Duos

          Hope Jimmy & Martial will fetch the points for owners to boost up in rank

            King to pukki or roll

            1. ddfc
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              That’s what I was thinking... or Jota to Pukki as King has better run of fixtures??

        • tyron
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          So are we saying Pukki is fixture proof?

          1. Irbox ⚽
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Looks it

            He's not.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Why? His movement, speed and accuracy is second to none and is the linchpin for an attack minded team

              1. lespaul
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 2 days ago

                Second to none ? Messi?

                1. Irbox ⚽

                  Referring to the prem this season. He passes the eye test so well and his stats back it up

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

                  Messi has never scored a hatty vs Newcastle though...

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

            Doesn't even score half as much away from home it seems.

            • 8 Years

            We dont know yet but surely passes the eye test

          5. HakimZyech
              1 month, 2 days ago

              If you want a finisher look no further than the finish man himself. He is fixture proof imo

                I'd go Barnes on current from, plus fixtures open up nicely after next two, could see him nicking a goal or two goals vsWOL and LIV

                    First two I assume. Pukki, really again?

                        honestly think it could backfire the first week, but looks pretty good for the next few right?

                    Similarly to you I want several players in but feel it might be best to give it another GW for a bit more info and just do boring Auba to Kane. The worlds gone mad for sure though if Im becoming a sensible manager haha

                        its horrible seeing players that you might want soon rising but Ive had a solid start so a bit easier to keep the faith for another GW at least

                          yeah think I'll get Lundstram and Kane, keep on my current path/structure which is going quite well - I've got the WC handy if KDB/Son/Mane all go mental

                            Yup, same here not happy holding Fraser v City but Auba to Kane looks the better move with 1FT for me. Loads on here seem to have spunked their wildcard which could give us a nice advantage in the future. GL

                              I obviously think KDB will do well but really do think Martial won't be miles away and I'll need to put more money in my defence soon enough - Yeah hope so, plenty seem to be taking out decent players on WC, GL

                    Not much in it, once Zinchenko plays all 4.

                    No need to overthink it, just pick the one you prefer.

                    Nice team. Fancy Martial over Rashford which allows a better defence. No Salah is a concern but the team looks solid I can’t complain about that.

                    Looks a good GW2 team.

                      Probably. I have a hunch this season might prove to be about finding budget defence gems and having a big front 8. I appreciate that’s not in line with the group think on here.

                      1. MosF94
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        1 month, 2 days ago

                        I'd drop Ceballos to Dendoncker/Cantwell and get in a couple of 4.5s - seriously, Hanley isn't likely to keep his place long-term. Kelly won't. Lunny might, but there'll probably be some rotation at least. Rico's already lost his. The cheap defence strategy is good, potentially, but you've pushed it just a little far I think!

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 2 days ago

                  I've moved Salah to Sterling. Should've gone for Sterling initially, I know, but I wanted KDB. Now I've got both KDB and Sterling, and I'm feeling good about it. I've also got Kane, and Sterling/Kane captaincy rotation over the next 10 GWs is as follows:

                  NEW/bou
                  BRI
                  CPA/nor
                  WAT
                  SOU
                  WOL/bri
                  WAT
                  AVL
                  SOU
                  SHU

                  I think I'd be unlikely to captain Salah - who has tougher fixtures - during this run, and I might be able to swap him in for Sterling after GW12 when City's fixtures get tougher and Liverpool's easier.

                  A bold move - but is it a stupid one? I'm hoping not!

                    1 month, 2 days ago

                    It works for longer than the next 10 weeks as well.
                    I'm also looking at getting Salah week 13.

                    I think it's a good one. Sterling will play a hell of a season this year imo. I don't like the look of Salah and I wouldn't captain him much in the next few GW as well

                      1 month, 2 days ago

                      Salah returned 12 points first game....then blanks after 120mins midweek....

                      Could easily see him returning well against Arsenal

                        1 month, 2 days ago

                        I can too - I just think Sterling will get more returns over the next 10 GWs. Could easily be wrong, and I'm not usually one to go Salah-less; but if I am going to take that gamble, now seems like a decent time to do so!

                            I want Kane more than Salah for the next 10 fixtures, and I don't want to cripple my squad by having all 3

                            1. Prawnsandwich

                              I've got the three, (no KDB)...decent squad..., as many do

                                I'd rather have KDB + 3m for the next 10 GWs than Salah

                        Yes he can and he maybe will score. But I fancy city and sterling over the next few GWs.

                    Exact same mentality here mate. Sterling hurt us tremendously GW1 but KDB has limited the damage. Salah looks a bit off after AFCON and City are just on another level attacking wise than Liverpool

                      And just think how satisfying it'll be watching KDB assist captain Sterling...!

                            But see how United look defensively against Wolves, I think they concede 1-2 goals
