Pukki asking serious questions of non-owners as Mount impresses

Norwich City 2-3 Chelsea

Goals: Teemu Pukki (£6.8m), Todd Cantwell (£4.6m) | Tammy Abraham (£7.0m) x 2, Mason Mount (£6.1m). 

Assists: Pukki, Emi Buendía (£6.0m) | Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m), Christian Pulisic (£7.5m), Mateo Kovacic (£5.5m) 

Bonus Points: Abraham x 3 Pukki x 2 Mount x 1

Chelsea secured their first Premier League win of the Frank Lampard era as they overcame a spirited Norwich City to prevail 3-2 winners at Carrow Road. 

Tammy Abraham (£7.0m) struck twice to reward Lampard’s faith in restoring him to the starting line-up, with two fine strikes to record his first league goals for Chelsea. 

However, the top Fantasy story was Teemu Pukki (£6.8m), transferred in by over 1.2 million managers since the start of the season, registering a second double-figure score of 2019/20.

The Norwich forward scored one goal and provided an assist, as well as collecting two bonus points for his battling performance against Chelsea. 

In a game that had all the elements of a classic Premier League encounter, the narrative surrounding Pukki is one that leaves Fantasy managers not owning the £6.8m striker with a serious decision. 

Pukki (right) scored his fifth goal of the season on Saturday lunch-time

Since the Gameweek 3 deadline, he has attracted 120,000+ new owners, and the striker’s performance against Chelsea, coupled with his form in the first two matches, are indicative of a forward with the ability to establish themselves as fixture-proof this season.

It is difficult to look past Pukki as the best value budget forward so far in 2019/20, and with his price set sky-rocket once more this week, those not in possession of him may have to act fast.

Up next for the Canaries is West Ham, whose defence has not particularly impressed this season and, even though it’s Manchester City after that, interest in Pukki will certainly be high in the build-up to Gameweek 4.

There may also be some alternatives in the Norwich ranks for Fantasy managers to consider.

Todd Cantwell celebrates scoring for Norwich against Chelsea

Pukki was supported in his attacking endeavours once again by Todd Cantwell (£4.6m), who opened the scoring for the Canaries after an incisive cut-back from the Finnish forward.

We shouldn’t forget about Emi Buendía (£6.0m) either, who has been an important creative player for Norwich so far this season.

After assisting at Anfield in Gameweek 1, the diminutive midfielder set-up Pukki’s goal against Chelsea and now has two attacking returns in 2019/20.

The potential value in Norwich’s attacking options simply cannot be understated or ignored, Pukki, Cantwell and Buendía particularly impressing in their last two outings.

Todd Cantwell and Emi Buendia celebrate a goal for Norwich

The Finnish international now has five goals and one assist in three matches, while Cantwell, playing on the left flank of the Canaries’ attacking midfield trio, has a goal and two assists.

If the trio can continue their impressive early-season form in some promising fixtures from Gamweek 6 to 8, then Daniel Farke’s side could become the most important source of budget options in the Premier League.

Abraham and Mount got the goals for Chelsea as they recorded their first win of the season

Whilst Abraham’s brace understandably stole the headlines in Chelsea’s victory, Mason Mount (£6.1m) delivered yet another exceptional performance to cement his place in Lampard’s plans for the upcoming Premier League campaign – and on the Fantasy radar.

Mount, whose goal put Chelsea 2-1 up inside 17 minutes, burst through the Norwich defence to unleash a stunning strike past Tim Krul (£4.5m).

It was another goal that highlights his potential value this season, with two strikes in his last three league games, rewarding his 6.7% ownership for Gameweek 3.

Admittedly, Mount did leave the field with a suspected calf injury, Lampard allayed any concern that Mount could be out with a long-term problem. 

“For Mason, it was more of a kick on his calf so better news hopefully than a strain of any sort so hopefully he’ll recover.” Frank Lampard

Mason Mount was taken off with an injury in the second half

With over 440,000 Wildcards having been deployed in the build-up to Gameweek 3, Mount is a name that had already held relative gravitas as a budget pick for attacking coverage from Chelsea, but his impressive performance on Saturday is likely to consolidate his credibility as an attacking asset for Fantasy managers ahead of Gameweek 4. 

At this point, Mount’s place in the side looks fairly assured too, not just because of his impressive form.

Chelsea were dealt another injury blow on Saturday as Pedro (£7.0m) was injured in the pre-match warm-up. While Chelsea did well in response to losing the player, it does reduce the competition for Mount in the side.

“I thought we adjusted well to that. Pedro was a last-minute change. I thought Ross came in and did very well, Mason moved to the left and did very well so I was pleased. We talk about a young team who have to deal with things on the pitch and they did it well.” Frank Lampard

Interestingly, it was Ross Barkley (£5.9m) who was turned to when Lampard needed a replacement, not Willian. He deployed Barkley in the central midfield trio and pushed Mount forward onto the left flank of the front three.

Chelsea’s defence has now failed to keep clean-sheets in any of their opening three Premier League fixtures, and the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) do not seem viable options accordingly

It was another concerning performance from the Blues’ backline against Norwich on Saturday, which should sound more alarm bells for those in possession of Chelsea defenders.

This was an important result for Lampard but equally an impressive performance from Farke’s side, with players from both sides affirming their credentials as Fantasy selections, most notably Pukki, Cantwell, Abraham and Mount.

      Looks good to save.

      VVD to TAA or Barnes to Haller are possible moves but not urgent.

  13. Kane-harry Island

    Is it time to make this transfer or wait
    Robertson > Trent.

    1. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      bad transfer that, a waste

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      I think it might be time for Robbo owners to admit the error and swap them. TAA always looks to get the cross in whereas Robertson was constantly checking the ball back into midfield when he should have been attempting the cross.

      1. COK3Y5MURF
        • 3 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        TAA put in more crosses, but they were mostly off-target whereas Robbo's were accurate. TAA is the better option, but based on yesterday's game alone, Robbo was better and had a higher xA than TAA. (own both)

      2. Kane-harry Island
        • 2 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        TAA being on corner kicks is such a huge advantage IMO.

    3. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      I would disagree, was there at the game yesterday and admittedly robbo has not found his last season form but he was putting in good low balls from the off and unfortunately Salah was never at the back post to get them in.

      On the other hand Trent delivery was awful most of the game and the one good ball he found got the opening goal.

      I would still keep with Burnley and Newcastle on the horizon

    A: Vvd + wickham >> Lundstram + Pukki and play 343 with lundstrum on bench

    B: Pérez + King > mcginn/6m mid + Pukki and continue with 442 with wickham on bench

    Hi all

    King and Perez to Haller and Mount for -4?

    Current team, which I plan to WC after next week:

    Ryan
    TAA, Zinchenko, AWB, Digne
    Perez, Sterling, Salah, Martial
    Pukki, King

    Button, Lundstram, Dendo, Wickham

    1. Jafalad
      • 9 Years

      I’d want to see more of Mount and Haller. How about Perez and Wickham to Cantwell and Pukki?

      1. chekrdnickrs
        • 6 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        Mount has great fixtures coming up, thinking of capitalizing on that!

        Already have Pukki!

      2. Jafalad
        • 9 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        Not Pukki. Maybe just the Perez->Cantwell move?

    Likelihood of Kane staying quiet is low unless NEW have gone through a hidden defensive transformation. Fully prepared for him to ruin my GW where the river of arrows will runneth red.

      I have KdB and Raz.

      Genuinely not bothered about what Kane does. If he goes off then he goes off. Nothing I can do about it since I don't own him and decided I couldn't fit him in a team with other players I wanted.

      FPL is about accepting that you can't have everyone, so some weeks you're going to miss hauls.

    Appreciate all your feedback and looking at those upcoming fixtures for City and Liverpool maxing out on those teams on WC likely makes the most sense.
    Thoughts on the revamped squad below?

    Pope
    TAA / Robbo / Laporte / Walker
    Sterling / Salah / Martial / McGinn
    Pukki / Haller
    (4.0, Cantwell, Lundstram, 4.5)

    2. Pras United
      • 7 Years

      Great team! Despite the good fixtures - I’d still prefer Digne + Mount to Laporte and McGinn

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah really want Digne but those fixtures are so juicy looking for City! Not much between McGinn and Mount for me atm but I slightly prefer McGinn. Cheers.

    3. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      personally I would downgrade robbo and walker to upgrade martial to KDB, or us that madness?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I like the fact that Martial is playing no 9 and hasn't done anything wrong yet (looked very sharp yesterday) buy yeah KDB is so tempting!

      Bad idea to double up Liv and city Def. Need two city attack. Kdb and sterling are essential season keepers.

          Pope
          Laporte / VVD / TAA / Mings
          Sterling / KDB / Salah / McGinn
          Pukki / Haller

            This looks good as well. Gives you the option to play Cantwell or Lundstrum.

    1. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      I had salah but still need a Kane haul

  21. HurriKane
    • 7 Years

    Which optiion is better long term?

    A) KDB Coleman/Emerson AWB

    B) Martial TAA Digne

    (btw already got AWB)

    1. Dannyb
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      I would say A

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      Close one. I’m on B but aware that KDB could punish.

    3. RichRover
      • 7 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      A

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      B looks better beacasueof TAA and Digne but I'm still not sold on Martial.

    5. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      See above.

      If Kane hauls then so be it.

      I had Salah's points yesterday and KdB and Raz (c) to come today.

      Since the pricing structure means its unlikely Kane owners have all 3 of those other players they will potentially miss out on points I'll get or already have gotten this GW.

      Not having Kane means accepting that some weeks he'll haul and you won't have him. That's FPL for you.

    Did not press the button yet but what's your thoughts on this hypothetical WC team :

    Pope Button
    VVD Laporte Mina Lund Kelly
    Mane Sterling KDB Son Cantwell
    Haller Barnes Greenwood

    1. Regin

      Pukki Essential!

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      • 3 Years

      Not going with Pukki?

      1. The Man Pastore
        • 5 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        I think I missed the train already... I see barnes and Haller delivering as well and maybe it is time to go with something different

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years

      I would say yes. Chelsea very attacking, good fixtures...

  29. SUPER MOKH
    • 3 Years
    24 days, 17 hours ago

    How's Haller? Didn't watch the game. I'm considering him as Wilson's replacement. Already have Pukki of course.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      Two very well taken goals but apparently Watford have been atrocious. Haller certainly has the fixtures but I never feel confident knowing what West Ham will do from one week to the next.

  30. HollywoodXI
    • 5 Years
    24 days, 17 hours ago

    Underwhelming WC so far. 26 points with KDB, Sterling and Kane (c) to play. My old team would’ve also currently been on 26 points with four to play so not much different. That Dunk disallowed goal and Rashford penalty miss really hurt as I would’ve been at least 10 points ahead of my old team (not including probable bonus points). Small margins.

    1. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      24 points here with the same as well as Pope here

      Still reeling from removing Salah on WC

      1. juho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        24 days, 17 hours ago

        *...as well as Pope left to play"

        1. HollywoodXI
          • 5 Years
          24 days, 17 hours ago

          If you roll with a Salahless team you have to expect weeks like this. I’ve gone Mane because I believe he can score as well as Salah and I have used the extra £1m to upgrade my fourth midfielder from a 5m player to Mount so that’s positive.

          1. juho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            24 days, 17 hours ago

            Are you concerned with Mane's underlying stats against Arsenal?

            Pales significantly in comparison to Salah's

            1. HollywoodXI
              • 5 Years
              24 days, 16 hours ago

              Not particularly. The week before Mane smashed Salah on stats and points against Saints. I attended that game live and Mane was by far the better player.

              1. juho
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                24 days, 16 hours ago

                Thanks for the insights!

                I've been considering knee-jerk moves of Kane + Mane -> Haller + Salah.
                I definitely need to check myself.

                1. HollywoodXI
                  • 5 Years
                  24 days, 16 hours ago

                  Be patient. It hurt that Salah scored well with Mane getting nothing but I had Pukki and Mount in my WC team and they made up for it. If Kane scores we’ll as captain today then the damage is undone to a degree with many experienced ignoring him this season (I understand their logic btw).

    2. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      24 days, 17 hours ago

      Yeah, it's been pretty poor so far. I've benched a load of points in Cantwell and Soyuncu.

      The wildcard isn't for one gameweek, and shouldn't be judged after half a gameweek

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        24 days, 16 hours ago

        Thats the problem with cantwell and lundy for that matter, always an option for the bench
