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.

    Did nobody told Arsenal players about VAR ?
    All this pulling shirts in the box, ridicioulus.

    1. Fugazi➰
      • 1 Year
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Luiz is just a knob. His post match interview showed his stupidity saying it’s cause salah shirt was a large size. Seriously!

      1. Jarvish
        • 4 Years

        Bet Lampard was pissing himself

        Sokratis on VVD when Matip scored was silly too.

        1. Fugazi➰
          • 1 Year
          21 days, 13 hours ago

          Yeah but Liverpool scored otherwise a def pen

      3. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        That interview was amazing

        Trying to claim that VAR does not help the referee appreciate the force with which he was, or wasn't tugging the shirt

    2. Peter Ouch

      Luiz is just.....

    Is a Spurs attacker essential?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      No

      1. fantasyfog

        see you later

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Pukki, City and Pool- essential imo.
      Spurs too often get random goals scores.

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        This

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Helpful but not essential

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        And this.

    4. Tamagotchi Massacre
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Of course not essential but at their pricing this year they could very much be in the conversation

  4. mikess
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    21 days, 13 hours ago

    Would you loose Pérez or Trossard for Mount?

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Either. If pushed Perez out first.

      1. mikess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        Fixtures dive a little for both sides over next few. Pérez has Bournemouth at home so might keep for that

    2. juho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Perez for sure

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Perez

      But would you do that for a hit?

    4. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Would just be my ft

  5. Pete Price The Lizard

    Thoughts on my team for next GW personally think I'll gonna hook Rashford out for Laca or Jesus:

    Foster
    Boly Coleman Robbo
    Dendonker Moura Sterling (©) Salah
    Rashford King Pukki

    Subs:Button,Norwood,Monty & Kelly

    1.4 ITB 1 FT

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      I wouldn't touch laca or jesus. They aren't nailed

      1. Pete Price The Lizard
        • 3 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        Do think Laca will play in the NLD next week now though they looked better when he came on and went 433 against us yesterday tempted by him for at least one game considering using the WC after IB anyway

        1. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          21 days, 13 hours ago

          Just don't trust Emery with his rotation. I wouldn't pay 9.5 for a player that's in doubt

      2. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        Why emery wont play laca, ill never know. Need to send him to chelsea!

        1. Pete Price The Lizard
          • 3 Years
          21 days, 13 hours ago

          Ahaha yeah he's thier best player attacking wise honestly think he will go 433 next week against Spurs Laca scored against them home last season too.

          1. The Suspended One

              • 3 Years
              21 days, 13 hours ago

              Definitely thier defensive is shocking still.

    2. Joggers Nipple

        I will gonna WC during IB

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        Lmfao really?

    5. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Pepe looks a better use of 9.5m than Lacazette.

      Lacazette always seems to be the first on Emery drops, so he's not viable IMO

  6. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Guys any idea how nailed is Mount? Looks good cheap option long term from chelsea

  7. Hairy Potter
    • 4 Years
    21 days, 13 hours ago

    Which would you rather have after this week if you already had Salah?

    A) Kane + Martial
    B) Haller + Mane

    1. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      I'd be tempted by B

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 4 Years
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        Yeah, Mane & Salah double up is tempting and Haller has good fixtures.

    Are Man Utd a trap?

    Very erratic form last season and now again. Avoid at all costs considering wealth of other options....Haller, Mount, Son etc

    1. Fugazi➰
      • 1 Year
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      Yes def

    2. The Suspended One

    3. Pete Price The Lizard
      • 3 Years

      Yes glad I only had Rashford for a GW will probably bite me on the arse against Southampton next weekend knowing the way

    4. Business Cat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      I don't think so. One bad game doesn't mean much.

      If you're worried about erratic form, West Ham assets should not be top of your shopping list!

    5. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      They will win more than they lose so there's that to consider.

      Depends who you go for.

      Ie, is Pogba going to deliver more at £8.6 than Mount at £6.1.

      Is Martial long term going to outscore Cantwell or Buendia to the point that he's worth £3m or £1 7m more?

      AWB may be the best value player of theirs.

      My feeling on Utd players is that they're overpriced based on the name of the team they play for, but that doesn't mean don't have them.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1. Nomar

          Never.

      2. Fugazi➰
        • 1 Year
        21 days, 13 hours ago

        United midfield bit worth their prices

        Pogba heads not in the right place and it shows

        Can’t see them getting ANY clean sheets and AWB too deep to supply attacking returns

        I say don’t have ANY of them

        1. Fugazi➰
          • 1 Year
          21 days, 13 hours ago

          Not worth their prices sorry

    6. King Kun Ta
      • 4 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      3 GWs and 3 returns from Martial....a midfielder as a number nine. If you allready own him i would keep him.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Save for now

      There’s a killer move of swapping Robbo for 5.8 Alisson on the horizon. That’ll get you loads of flexibility with a double move sometime

    Liverpool double defence will surely get me a clean sheet at some point..

      Next two look promising, if they dont keep CS in those I will sell VVD for Laporte and keep TAA.

      Yesterday's late goal still hurts.

      1. The Overthinker

        Lanzini looked good in first two matches, and has been crucial whenever he has played. Brought him In for Gw3, and he did give me instant return cancelling the hit

        not for me yet mate...Arsenal looked shocking yesterday, albeit v LIV!

        1. Business Cat
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          21 days, 13 hours ago

          I thought Arsenal played OK (certainly in comparison to previous years in this fixture).

          Pepe looks like he might be great once he's up to speed.

          David Luiz handed Salah both his goals on a silver platter

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            21 days, 13 hours ago

            Really? They gave TAA & Robbo two thirds of the pitch...you'd think that they paid Emery for the free run of grass 🙂

            1. jia you jia you
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              but tbf cant really judge, LIV can destroy any team at Anfield!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              21 days, 13 hours ago

              They were narrow, but that was the gameplan. Let the fullbacks run forward, break with pace on the counter with Pepe and Auba.

              If they were more clinical (Pepe especially when he was through one-on-one), could've turned out differently.

              Wasn't a bad effort to try and expose weakness in Liverpool's play.

    Two tough decisions to take. Team is -

    Pope - (McGovern)
    Digne - AWB - Lundstram - (Dunk - Rico)
    Sterling - KDB - Martial - Hayden - (Demconkers)
    Kane - Auba - Pukki

    1FT and 0.8 ITB. Ideally want to save my FT and get a 4th decent MF next GW. Been playing 4 at the back, but both Lundstram (CHE) and Dunk (MCI) have tough fixtures. Also, my captain strategy has been to put the armband on who is playing at home between Kane or Auba. However it looks pretty sensible to put it on Sterling this week.

    So...(A)save FT or (B) get in a better defender in for Dunk or (C) get in Cantwell?
    And...(i) captain Auba in the NL derby or (ii) stick it on Sterling at home to Brighton?

    1. Dacra
      • 5 Years

      I'm. Keeping double Liverpool defence for now, gotta get a cleanie shortly and I'm sure VVD and TAA will near the top scoring defenders in a few weeks time..

  26. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    21 days, 13 hours ago

    Best option here with 1ft and 0m ITB. Don’t wanna bias anyone with giving suggestions

    Pope — Heaton
    Taa vvd digne Zinchenko — rico
    Sterling martial kdb perez — docker
    Kane king — wickham

    1. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      21 days, 13 hours ago

      I think you'll need to sacrifice one of Sterling Kane or KDB to fit Salah or Mane. Combination of that and a defensive downgrade. VVD perhaps

        not fully convinced on Mount but perhaps I'm missing a trick and wrong to go without on WC...time will tell

          He seems like he's Frank Lampard's golden boy.

          Number 10 role pretty much nailed now I'd say. Decent attack with Pulisic, Abraham, Pedro, Willian, etc. and some nice fixtures to exploit.

          If Martial is injured (and Mount isn't), he's currently my transfer for this week

          think one non-playing forward is enough though and gives you some more flexibility for one of Haller, Kean, Wesley, Jota, Abraham, Maupay, Barnes etc. (lot of options in the 6-7 forward bracket).

    Oh dear, forgot to do my planned Pukki to Jota FT last night. Have 0.4m ITB and am now priced out of it. I blame beer and life

    VAR is pisch.

      It's not VAR, it is the level of the referees. It's so bad that not even technology can improve it.

        How Martial being hauled down in the box yesterday doesn't go under the heading of "clear and obvious error" after the ref didn't give it is beyond me.

        Then there was that bizarre 2min red card check in the Liverpool-Arsenal match that no-one knew what was going on, even the players.

        VAR referees appear to be looking at the wrongs things...isn't working well at the minute
