Jiménez and Jota’s minutes managed in latest Europa League win

Torino 2-3 Wolves

Goals: Diogo Jota (£6.5m), Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m)

Own Goals: Bremer

Assists: Joao Moutinho (£5.5m), Adama Traoré (£5.0m), Romain Saïss (£4.5m)

It was more of the same for Wolves on Thursday night as they won another Europa League tie with goals from Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) and Diogo Jota (£6.5m).

The forwards teased Fantasy owners still waiting on the first FPL attacking returns this season with their quality once again.

Jota, who should have scored in the first half, drove home close-range finish around the hour-mark, while Jiménez netted after running through the heart of the Torino defence.

Wolves’ latest opponents were certainly the highest quality Wolves have faced so far, after Crusaders and Pyunik were swept aside with relative ease.

The Italian side finished seventh in Serie A last season, which made for an even contest between two well-matched sides.

While Wolves played well, largely controlled the game and certainly deserved to win the tie, owners of their Fantasy assets might be slightly more concerned than after previous European wins this season.

Fantasy managers are still waiting on attacking returns from Jiménez and Jota in the Premier League this season

Just three days after a draw with Manchester United, Wolves had to be at the top of their game to get this result, and the compounded effect of those two matches could lead to a subdued performance against Burnley.

Furthermore, the fact that the aggregate score currently stands at 3-2, the tie is far from over and will probably require as much exertion from the fist-choice players next Thursday, just days before the Gameweek 4 trip to Everton.

“It’s far from being over, it’s a close tie. We have to play next week against a very, very tough and a very good team. We played good, we were organised, we stayed in shape, we produced some goals but, as I say, there’s still one game to go and we have to be really, really good to perform again against a very, very good team.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

That said, Nuno Espirito Santo did everything he could to guard against burning out his players in Turin as Wolves’ busy schedule continues.

He made four changes to the side that drew with Manchester United and rested both Jiménez and Jota after their goals, Patrick Cutrone (£5.9m) and Pedro Neto (£5.0m) their replacements.

Jesus Vallejo (£4.9m) came in for Ryan Bennett (£5.0m) at centre-back, Rúben Vinagre (£4.5m) replaced Jonny (£5.5m) at left-back and Romain Saïss (£4.5m) slotted into midfield allowing Rúben Neves (£5.5m) the night off.

Meanwhile, Matt Doherty (£6.0m) travelled with the squad and participated in the warm-down after the match, which means he is probably fit, but played no involvement in the match.

“Everybody’s fine, Matt Doherty is OK. We’ve been preparing since the beginning for the season for this kind of cycle. Two days is difficult, but we are ready to play.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Filling in for Doherty at right wing-back was Adama Traoré (£5.0m) who played 64 minutes before Jonny came on for him.

The wide-man is starting to show increased potential for attacking returns from right wing-back in the event of another Doherty injury.

Traoré was the man who set up Jota’s goal on Thursday night

After adding some much-needed impetus against Manchester United on Monday night, Traoré asked all the questions for Wolves’ second goal in Turin.

He used his pace to get around the back of the Torino defence in the 59th minute and a calmly delivered square ball was driven into the back of the net by Jota.

Traoré’s assist was proof of the player’s increased usefulness to the Wolves team.

Last season, he was largely all about the pace, without much end-product but in recent weeks he has shown much more awareness and quality delivery. That made for an extremely difficult night for Torino left-back Cristian Ansaldi.

“I’m pleased. He helped the team, others did what they had to do. It’s about tasks, it’s about rules, it’s about always being a team. Knowing that, when you know yourselves better and the characteristic is of the player what they can give to the team is important.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

That said, Traoré may still need to make some improvements to the defensive side of his responsibilities at right wing-back.

Almost immediately after Jota had scored Wolves’ second goal, Traoré lost the ball in his area of the pitch trying to play out from the back.

That allowed Ansaldi to get the ball into the box for Lorenzo de Silvestri to score a diving header at the far post after Vinagre had lost the run.

Vinagre had a tough night for Wolves, especially in the second half

The young full-back was also at fault for Torino’s second goal late-on, which ensured the tie is still very much alive going into next week.

His wild swing at Andrea Belotti caught the striker and brought him down in the penalty box. Torino’s number nine coolly dispatched the spot-kick under Rui Patrício (£5.0m), who guessed the direction of the shot but couldn’t keep it out.

Finally, a mention for central midfielder Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) whose involvement in Wolves’ set-pieces led to another assist on Thursday night.

This time, it was his free-kick at the back posted that was headed into his own net by Torino defender Bremer under pressure from Saïss.

The Portuguese international now has four in five Europa League matches this season, having set up Neves’ wonder-strike against Manchester United.

“(Moutinho) respects himself, he rests and he’s a fantastic player and other players play also. It’s a very, very busy schedule – we have to manage that and always try and make good decisions so the team stays compact and organised. Moutinho is just one case among others that play two games in a row and three games in a row, then we have to decide for the next one. The most important thing is that the players understand that they have to really, really work hard and recover well to be able to cope with such a difficult time and such a difficult schedule.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Wolves XI (3-5-2): Patrício; Boly, Coady, Vallejo; Vinagre, Moutinho, Saïss, Dendoncker, Traoré (Jonny 64′); Jota (Neto 69′), Jiménez (Cutrone 76′).

    Mount. 6.1 number 10 chelsea. Good stats. Is it a trap?

    1. Pukki Party

      I got him in

    2. Irbox ⚽

      I think he is a gift from the FPL gods. Lampard raves about his potential and said his best is yet to come. He has played all 180 minutes, passes the eye test and could have scored another against Leicester. I think he is the next big bandwagon

    3. Rust Cohle

      I want him in my side, but having trouble parting with other midfielders who are also in good form.

      Scored a hatty in the Championship and Lamps loves him.

      Trossard's fixtures turn after this GW so considering Mount myself. Him or McGinn to replace Trossard with.

    Which option? Cannot decide at all to complete the WC team...

    A) Mina + Salah
    B) Digne + Mane

    1. BigPointDipper
        2 months, 1 day ago

        B - think Mane is on a bit of a run atm and will score more than salah in the short term.

        1. Warby84

                All I want this weekend is a TAA haul. Sick and tired of reading comments about him.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Do you think TAA starts ahead of Gomez this week?

                  1. Berbinho's Forehead
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Yes. It won't make sense to play Gomez, who isn't even a good RB. He's a fantastic CB and that's it, imo.

                    I'd love to find the threat on twitter but in short Liverpool score more and concede less when it's TAA at RB over Gomez.

                    1. Berbinho's Forehead

                        2 months, 1 day ago

                        You could argue Gomez is a better Right Back over Trent because he can defend

                    2. Goonsquad245

                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      What was the average fixture difficulty when Gomez played at RB vs TAA?

                  Evenif he doesn't , we all know its worth keeping him for season despite the odd non-start

                  I'll tell you what will help. Get Salah off corners - he is rubbish at them, and let Trent get back into the rhythm.

                  Of course you do if you are an owner.. it’s an unconscious bias which hinders you from seeing other possibilities. There is undoubtedly a possibility he is benched, just accept it

                  1. Berbinho's Forehead
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    I said this the whole of last season too, when I didn't own him.

                    Of course he's going to be benched at some point. For the same reason Walker, Doherty, Trippier and any other attacking fullback get benched - they're humans not machines.

                  2 successful crosses from a league high 22
                  not getting forward anywhere near as much as Robertson

                  He needs to improve

                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Agreed absolutely. Same goes for Robbo too.

                      That stat you referenced is pretty pointless though - it's logical they concede more and score less in the games Gomez plays RB as it tends to happen in the tougher games.
                      (I agree with your point in general - just not that stat)

                  He's well due - my hope is that he stays relatively quiet points wise until becker returns then I shall welcome him back with open arms, possibly with Robbo too

                    That is the key fact. Becker is the deal breaker. If he was fit no one would be considering or transferring out TAA or Robbo.

                  Nice team. Defence is good, even without pool defence.

                      Really tough one for me here.
                      Play Murray at home to Brighton.
                      Murray to Pukki for a hit.

                        Murray to score an own goal?

                        Play Murray (although this is on the assumption he is certain to start)

                            Depends how much faith you have in the Pukki-wagon.

                        Expecting a gritty 0 - 0 draw this GW, I'm afraid. I think I will ship an, and possibly bring back later

                        GTG?

                        Pope
                        Zinchenko, AWB, Lundstram, Montoya
                        Mane, Sterling, KDB, Martial
                        Kane (c), Pukki

                        (Button, Cantwell, Soyuncu, Greenwood)

                        Bench order good? Lundstram/Montoya/Cantwell/Soyuncu rotation looks decent for the next 4 weeks.

                        Cheers!

                                More worried about Digne then pool defence

                                  Good spot!

                                  Zinchenko -> Digne is a no brainer when you can

                                  Really wanted to get Digne in but made the bench too weak. Also fancy Zinchenko for good city fixtures next 3 or 4 weeks, assuming he will be playing.

                                    Btw...we could downgrade soyuncu and upgrade zinchenko to Digne. Just a thought.

                                      Yeah had considered that but not keen on any 4.0 defenders (apart from Lundstram). I think with two playing 4.0/4.5 defenders we need Soyuncu for rotation.

                                  Want to change team structure to go Kane + Pukki up top. Kane might become Auba (or even Kun) later on. Is it worth a -8 to do it this GW, in order to save WC for later?
                                  Will also mean downgrading VVD to Lundstram (keeping TAA). Thinking it needs to be done now due to Kane(c) this GW.

                                    Don't know. It is odd. Toby went out of the frame for ages before.

                                    Toby & Jan clearly the best pairing.

                                  WC team - saved 0.6 so quite happy about that. Anyone done anything similar? Siggy sold for 8.0 and bought back for 7.9.

                                  Adrian (Button)
                                  Laporte Maguire Digne Lundstram (Söyüncü)
                                  Sterling Salah KDB Siggy Martial
                                  Pukki (Greenwood, Wickham)

                                  Big decision is:
                                  Laporte & Wickham (sub)
                                  or
                                  Jota & Diop (sub)

                                  Bit reliant on Pukki starting with no substitute forwards but I can’t see him not.

                                  No TAA or Robbo but while Allison is injures I think CSS will be limited.

                                  Any feedback/ideas?

                                    I see what you’re doing with having Adrian, but what’s your plan for when Alisson comes back and you have to transfer in a keeper and have to figure out how to get Pool defense. Too many transfers for me. If you don’t think Pool will get CSs while he’s out, then surely there are better 4.5 keepers to select.

                                      Yeah fair point, it does worry me that the Liverpool defenders could fire. Sideways move for Adrian, Heaton will make a lot of saves, Henderson too, but I read this morning that it’s looking to be quite a while til Allison is back. So for now, if they do keep clean sheets, I have cover. I think when/if the time comes, I’ll be willing to shift Martial/Siggy and Maguire to the most suitable 6 (Ceballos perhaps) and TAA/Robbo.

                                  Is it worth Salah to Sterling for free?
                                  Already have Kane

                                  Slightly concerned as a TAA owner that Gomez starts vs Auba this weekend

                                    You are hardly going to sell TAA because of that so no need to worry

                                    I still think he starts anyway

                                      Just sold Robbo so fully expect it.

                                    Think he'll start over the camel, Matip.

                                    why Gomez?
