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.

        One look at his team start of season and everyone here would of said it’s garbage. No Liverpool in it or nkthjng

    Does new game week for price changes start after first game or last game as in could Ceballos potentially be 5.9m by next game or already 0.1m of max 0.3m per week?

    1. VanDijksToWatchOutFor

      I believe it’s from passing of deadline.

    A lot of the teams I'm seeing are going light at the back. Do you think the underperformance of some premium defender is just a blip or a long-term trend?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      5 premium defender was always a joke template

      Blip. Liverpool will keep plenty of cs they just haven’t yet. Taa could have hauled gw1, digne double figured today. They’re coming. (God I hope they are coming).

    3. 11 smelly shirts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      That's a great question... Last week we've seen many clean sheets, this week not so much, esp not from top 6. I don't think yet it's a long-term trend, need to continue observing. I have Robbo and Walker, will def not double up and consider downgrade Robbo to bring in another high scoring midfielder

    4. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      It’s because managers don’t believe pool defenders are worth it with their form/Alisson being out. But many ditch their premium defenders after a few weeks because they can’t resist the lure of premium forwards/high priced mids (even though premium defenders offer better value)

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        KDB at his price will make a mockery of a premium defenders price this season

    Any transfers need next GW?

    Ryan
    VVD Digne Boly Walker-Peters
    Mane Perez Sterling Robinson
    Rashford Pukki

    Pope King Gudmundsson Maitland-Niles

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Perez and Robinson gotta go

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Maybe Robinson out?
      Showing as injured now.
      Shame Ceballos has just risen as was a straight swap. Anything ITB?

  7. Boberella
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Hey DZ
    Vardy & Pulisic to KDB + Pukki for -8?
    Not normally a fan of big hits, but form of the latter two seems like a no brainer?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Nah -8 is too much.

      1. Boberella
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks.
        Although Vardy looks off and Pulisic doing nothing.
        Will keep one more week, as can still afford the same moves next week even with a few more price rises.

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Pulisic has looked decent enough. I just bought Mount I think Chelsea could start scoring more goals with the green fixtures ahead. I'd give Pulisic at least Norwich.

          1. Boberella
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Yeah, fair point re: Chelsea. Mount looks the pick of the bunch really.
            My other move I've considered could be Pulisic to Mount and Wesely to Pukki. But that means no KDB.
            (Wesley is a waste of space in my team)

            1. Royal5
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Almost started with Wesley myself. Went Jota in the end. They way Norwich play I think Pukki will continue to get goals his stats are impressive so far. I had to take a hit as feel City looks fantastic atm. Did Fraser/Lucas/Wilson > Kdb/Mount/Pukki. Just felt right. Time will showif it pays off. Was really close to playing my WC. Actually still might if ManU destroys Wolves.

              1. Boberella
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 25 days ago

                They're very good moves for a -4.
                I Ballsed up and went Dunk to Lundstram thinking I could then do Wesley to Pukki, but Pukki had risen, so priced out. Then did Robinson to Ceballos as i wanted him anyway. Now I'm buggered without hits or WC, but really want KDB.

                1. Royal5
                  • 8 Years
                  3 months, 25 days ago

                  Hate to do my transfers early. My plan last week was to go Lucas > Martial but got caught off guard an Martial rose. Thankfully Moura returned points.

    2. Boxwoods
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Don’t have a problem with it.
      Shipped Vardy and brought in pukki and KDB for -4 myself.
      And would def give -4 to be rid of Pulisic.

  8. Drogba Legend
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Best 4th midfielder for 5.3 or under? Kante, Cantwell, Sissoko, idk?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      If you're starting your 4th mid you need to invest more money. At least get aomeone like Mcginn or Ceballos.

      1. Boberella

  9. johndoe090
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    2 FT, 0 ITB

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Digne KWP (Lundstrom) (Rico)
    Sterling Salah Maddison Trossard McNeil
    Kane King (Greenwood)

    Was thinking McNeil -> Mount and save 1 FT?
    Also was thinking Sterling + Maddison -> De Bruyne & Son but would have to wait for Sterling to rise again.

    Any ideas here?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Sellimg Sterling would be madness imo.

      1. johndoe090
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        It's not about Sterling its about total points. Is Son + De Bruyne going to get me more points than Sterling + Maddison on a week to week basis? If the answer is yes, then why would it be madness?

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Most people have Sterling. And he's in great form. Could've had more points against Spurs and will continue to be involved. I'd look to get KDB, bu not on the expence of Raheem.

          1. Royal5
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Too big of a gamble this early in the season.

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      McNeil to Mount would be good IMO.
      Prob wouldn't get rid of Maddison just yet. He looked very good in second half.
      Losing Sterling would be crazy.

      1. johndoe090
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Maddison did look fantastic.

        Any other 6.0 or less middies worth looking into? Mount has certainly looked the best (but maybe not nailed, he did not play midweek).

    3. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Did i read that right? You want to get rid of Sterling?! Yeah don’t do that.

    Robbo - VVD
    Pérez - cantwell

    Would give me

    1. johndoe090
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Cantwell had 2 assists all last year for Norwich, as a Norwich fan, don't get him lol.

      1. Lallana
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        as a backup not bad though

      2. Lukakus talking
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks, Luiz at villa a better shout for a bench 4.5 mid?

        1. Boberella
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          This is a good shout

        2. Canary_Kid
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I'd get Cantwell, he's improved massively from last season and is completely nailed behind Pukki imo.

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

          Highly unlikely. He's scored his one goal of the season. Luiz is a proper DM - at least Cantwell and Donckers play up the right end of the pitch.

      3. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Watching him play, he's definitely improved though, and looks to have center himself in that attacking midfield position. (Norwich fan as well)

    Damn KDB rise has screwed me. Not on the ball this year. Really wanted to make Siggy into KDB but that extra 0.1 means I can only do

    Wilson > 6.4 (Wood?! Ings?)
    Robbo > 5.4
    VVD > 4.9 (would have to play every week in a 4-4-2)

    Gahhhhh

    1. EMBOLOFAN

    Worth a -4 to do:

    Heaton (Button)
    VVD Digne Shaw Zinc (Lunvdstram)

    Market is so volatile.

    That's 0.3m I've lost in a day just by wanting to wait for game week to end before making my transfers...

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      They should just update the prices the day before the premier league plays.

      I'm so busy right now that missing a price rise is annoying.

  15. Lallana
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Really want:

    Kane/Son
    Mane instead of Salah (Mane is on mad form)
    Pukki
    Rashford/Martial
    Emerson
    Trossard
    Wan Bissaka/Maguire
    Lanzini
    De Bruyne

    Want to keep:

    Digne
    Ederson
    Sterling
    Lundstram
    One of VVD or TAA

    Who's on your radar?

    Probably won't WC though because my rank is still good at 117K so it'd be panicking.

    1. Kane Lane
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      My rank 7k I still WC

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        If it works it works. I think could be great strategy with high rank if cement some key players that others will be priced out of

          Get the targets early whilst still trying to keep a decent rank in top 10k then you have better chance of breaking top 1k

    Worth waiting till later in the week to do Perez > Mount?

    a. Yes

    b. No - do it now lol!

    1. Lallana
      • 5 Years

      A

      personally, I think Mount is good (mum is a derby fan) but you think might get a Barkley situation with him...

      I like players who are nailed on myself.

      McGinn at 5.5M is who I got last week. Although he blanked, I'm happy he plays and I don't expect much.

      Perez is one I'm annoyed with but I'd give him 4 gameweeks per return with his price and be patient.

        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks Lallana

        It would be for a -4 at this stage as I already did Auba > Kane.

        1. Lallana
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Definitely wait! A -4 is not worth it.

          Even if Perez blanks imagine 2+4 (that hit you're saving) while waiting on information

    Ok so 2FT and this team, what would you do?

    Ryan Button
    Robbo VVD Maguire Digne Rico
    Salah Sterling Siggy Perez Dendonkey
    Wilson King Greenwood

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      would sort out rico and one of wilson/king

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Hmmm. Really hate wasting a transfer on that 5th defender, it's a bench fodder position

    2. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Siggy Perez Wilson
      >
      KDB Mount Pukki
      -4

      Is that doable?

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        That is doable yes. Not sure I like a hit with Mason Mount in it, and Pukki...I'm waiting for the regression. Or is he this years Jiminez? He won't get any more premier league hatricks this season imo...

        1. Lallana
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          He was really good against Liverpool BUT Liverpool are defending poor right now.

          Let's see how Pukki does after the next 4.

    3. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Robertson>Lundstram
      Perez>De Bruyne or Son

      1. bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Lundstram to play every week?

        1. Lallana
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          It's only speculative but based off the evidence, I would say so. Good minutes, game winning goal, played a lot of pre-season.

          At 4.0M you can't expect much attacking wise but you may get the occasional cleansheet. Sheffield are quite a defensive team compared to the others promoted.

  18. Canary_Kid
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    WC is active 🙂

    Pope Button
    Robbo AWB Soyuncu Montoya Lundstrum
    Sterling Mane KDB Son Martial
    Pukki Greenwood Wickham

    Thoughts?

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Great mid. The rest a bit meh imo

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      You got KDB before rise but not Ceballos??

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yea screwed up thought the price changes would be later and didn't bother getting in risers yet

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          You get maximum risers hoping they double then sell and bank 0.1m if lucky and don't want. Did you pay 9.6m for KDB on WC???

          1. Canary_Kid
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Yea I know like I said forgot about that cause I thought price changes would be later. No I had KDB at 9.5 already

    3. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Martial to Ceballos.
      Upgrade Greenwood/Wickham/Def

    4. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I like it a lot. Good value for money. ^

    5. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No way I would have that junk forward line for sake of mids

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Who would you downgrade? And to which forwards? The only forwards worth getting imo are Kane Auba Aguero and Pukki (potentially Kean and Haller) and it's not worth downgrading Son and Martial just to fit Kane/Auba/Kun in.

  19. Kane Lane
    • 4 Years

    WC Activated

    Should I change van dijk to laporte?

    Ryan
    WB Van dijk Digne
    Salah Sterling Mount Lucas Martial
    Pukki Rashford

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. Lallana
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Think Lucas will play even with Son back?

      1. Kane Lane
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yep I think Son comes on second half for Lamela I reckon Lucas starts

        1. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 25 days ago

        2. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          eriksen prob starts too

          1. Kane Lane
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Winks will be dropped

    3. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Mount and Lucas on a WC? Hmmmmm

    4. Moose™
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No Kane?

  20. The Man Pastore
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    I did Salah Fraser Perez --> Mane KDB Ceballos for -4pts before the price changes.

    Would you do Auba to Kane(c) for another -4pts ?

    Team is :

    Pope
    VVD Digne Dunk
    Mane Sterling KDB Ceballos Mcginn
    Auba Jota

    Button Guilbert Rico Greenwood

  21. King Huth

    What is with these random price rise timing... gettin very annoying...

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      It was normal time today and previous. Only first 2 rise/falls were hours late I believe

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Isnt it exact now? Its every 8:30am here in Jakarta time. It was 8:15am last season.

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      It's always been 210am BST and changes announced 10-15 mins later. Changes announced around 230am BST today

  22. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    1m rank OR at the moment. Was 1.5m OR after GW1'
    With 0 united and wolves, surely a green arrow likely beckons. How damaging can not owning anyone from that game get?

  23. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Keep or lose pèrez? Replacement would be mount or mcginn. Happy to give him a couple more weeks but I wasn't that impressed with him

    1. Underdog333
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Im holding for now, new team next couple of fixtures look ok to hold for at least another 2 weeks, will prob drop in price before then though

    2. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Mount

    3. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      If no other fires to put out, then yeah, Perez Out.

      I'd get Mount, but perhaps someone like Bernard is worthy of consideration?

      Ceballos a decent shout, but next game is hard.

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Thanks. Pretty happy with the rest of my team so might just do it after tonight's game

  24. Underdog333
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Any chance that he does not fall until next GW? Can't afford another transfer...

      1. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
