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.

    Anyone bringing Son in for his first game back?

    1. Vj_04
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      I am

    2. Differential (c)

      Was between KdB and him. Decided to get Kevin this week, for the price rise and better certainty of starting, and the might get him for KdB *maybe* if he starts next GW. Lamela apparently impressed yesterday, so unclear if Son gets his place back.

      1. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        Looking at yesterday’s line up I would think winks would drop to the bench, sissoko would drop back and Son would play in behind Kane.

        1. Differential (c)
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 21 hours ago

          Ah yes, that is certainly a possibility. But yeah, too late now, I've commited toI deBruyne already haha.

    Which one to sell Robertson or TAA
    TAA has looked better but always has competition from Gomez lurking there
    Robertson more guaranteed his pitch time but with the volume of sales looks like he could drop in price in the next week

    1. Bees4Lyf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      I can’t not decide

    2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      TAA also takes corners and FK's from time to time. I feel like he is the far more explosive pick.

    3. T-BOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      TAA, he isn’t nailed and can’t be having a 7.0 rotation risk in your squad

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        you can when hes on free kicks and gets 1000 assists

        1. T-BOX ⚽
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          Did Robbo not get the same amount of assists last season, and does Robbo not have a direct replacement? TAA is going to be benched a lot against top 6-8 teams this season

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 20 hours ago

            robbo been less and less attacking

            trent ppm is mental and playing more and more minutes. started both cl semis and final. before this weekend he had assists in 5 games in a row. hes cheaper than fraser lol

          2. norab
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 20 hours ago

            I'd bet TAA doesn't get benched against any of the top 6-8 for the whole season

            1. T-BOX ⚽
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              That’s just delusional.

                if hes benched away at city or something i wont be too upset

  7. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    Play Lundstram or Ceballos?

    Leaning towards Ceballos.

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Lundy, Leicester attack looked blunt vs CHE yesterday. Both have potential for attacking returns, so I'd go for the one who might get CS pts.

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        We must have watched different games. Leicester looked great in the second half to me.

        1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          They actually did. Or did Chelsea just look bad?

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Ceballos for me. Liverpool defence looks shaky.

      1. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        I think they turn it up a notch vs Arsenal. We have to remember they played 120 min midweek.

        1. EMBOLOFAN

    How good was cebellos from a fantasy perspective?

    1. T-BOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      2 assists, although neither were great assists or big chances created. Prefer Mount in they price bracket

      1. Bolivian Seaman
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        I don't see cebellos as good in fantasy but I'm normally wrong about these things. I can't afford mount

    2. Vj_04
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Ceballos
      1 assist, decent
      Made the right passes, yes
      Playing Liverpool and spurs next 3 games so a risky pick

    1) Auba to Kane & Wison to Pukki for free.
    2) Wilson to Pukki & Fraser to Martial.
    3) Auba to Kane, Wilson to Pukki and Fraser to Martial/pogba for -4.

    KDB or Sterling? Lets get real

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Need both

      1. spotfixers

        3 months, 21 hours ago

        so no Song?

        1. spotfixers

          Son*

    2. MFPL
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      I started with only KDB, but activated WC this week, despite a decent start, to bring in Sterling and Zinchenko. City's upcoming games make both essential in my opinion.

    3. Point-one short
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Both

  18. Infected by ebolasie
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    A lot of people seem to be jumping onto Mount. Didnt watch him play today but was he really that good? Despite Chelsea's fixtures I still think the likes of Trossard would be a better option in that price bracket

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      che have good fixtures and are a much better side tbf

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        both could easily end up template tho imo

  19. Canary_Kid
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    any potential double rises this week?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      yes

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        who...

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Several

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 21 hours ago

        who

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          Fplstatistics work it out but never guaranteed

    3. Point-one short
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      More than one

  20. HellasLEAF
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    AWB or Zinchenko

    this one tough for me.

    1. Infected by ebolasie
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Wait for todays matchs

    2. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      idealy both, but i'd say AWB.....just though.

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      zinch short term awb med term

  21. Kun still the man!
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    How does this WC team look?

    Heaton/Pope
    VVD, WB, Coleman, Dunk, Lund
    Sterling, KBD, Son, Martial, Ceballos
    Firmino, Pukki, Greenwood

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      If you do WC you get in as many near risers early hoping they double regardless of whether you keep as long as not for players you have that already risen

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        this is good advice

      2. Kun still the man!
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        Yes, keeping all risers in mind. Might switch ceballos to mcginn short term but how do you rate this salah/kane less team?

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          Unless Martial impresses against Wolves don't really rate him even classified as Mid

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 20 hours ago

            how come? good per min stats over good sample. problem has been minutes

  22. Zygaenid - BRAZIL NUTS
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    10 min till price change??

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Normal time 10 minutes ago

    2. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 21 hours ago

      Maybe, impossible to know for sure atm.

    3. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Weird it should be 10 mins ago

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        Usually 10 mins ago. Changes announced around about now

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Was yesterday yes

      1. Zygaenid - BRAZIL NUTS
        • 5 Years

        Random timing has to go

  23. Bolivian Seaman
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 21 hours ago

    Robinson missed out on 2 extra points because of fatigue. He came off at 56 minutes! He needs to get back in the gym!

    1. CloudSky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Injured no?

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Said both hamstrings tight. I transferred him out immediately

  24. Benny01_
    3 months, 20 hours ago

    Montoya or Dunk?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Dunk may rise shortly.

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Montoya is a flog compared to Dunk. Dunk top BPS for Brighton 1 bap even with no CS. Montoya positioning irrelevant as not that flash a player

    3. NED KELLY
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Montoya

    4. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      monty 12th highest number of completed crosses by a defender. not amazing but not bad.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        Elmo 2 more last game than Montoya total from 2 games.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          yes but addressing op question. elmo less nailed? def an option though i prefer soyboy in that bracket

  25. Moise and Men
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 20 hours ago

    have 2fts and not a lot i rlly want to do, worth using one on Rico > Lund as he may be rising shortly or is that a waste?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      A waste is not making a transfer before the deadline.

      1. Moise and Men
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        very true, i’m gonna do it and at least i have 1 ft still to cover injuries :))

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Not a waste

      1. Moise and Men
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        ty for reassurance, still got 1 FT to cover injuries rest of week then i’ll just roll it if nothing goes on :))

    3. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      Do it bc Lund plays.

  26. spotfixers
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 20 hours ago

    RMT please

    Adrian (button)
    VVD Zinchenko WB Lund Kelly
    KDB Sterling Salah Martial Cantwell
    Jota Pukki King

  27. MFPL
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 20 hours ago

    Mane over Salah a good idea?

    Allows me to have KDB, Sterling and Kane, along with relatively strong team, but no Liverpool defenders.

    1. spotfixers
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 20 hours ago

      lets see your team

      1. MFPL
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        Pope (Button)
        Zinchenko AWB Dunk (Montoya Lundstram)
        Sterling Mane KDB McGinn (Cantwell)
        Kane Pukki Barnes

        Will likely change over the week, but structure will remain very similar.

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          cool team but i think no salah is bad news

        2. spotfixers
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          looks good, defence a bit light

        3. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 20 hours ago

          Personally I would downgrade Mane to Martial and spend money elsewhere

          It's a joke to be honest. Price changes should occur once per gameweek and only once the gameweek ends.

          The fact the formula isn't transparent tells you everything.

      The Pepe price decline has began

      Could be a very useful pickup after the IB at around 9.0 if he needs anothe few games to find his feet & start delivering

      As long as Emery doesn’t Laca/Auba him

    15. Pukki Party

      When is Salah dropping?. He's the most transferred out player.

      1. Forza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        Players with huge ownership take a while to drop. He needs another 200,000+ sales.

      Downgrade Robo so you can get Wilson -> Kane
