Wolves rotation set to be an issue as defences struggle at Goodison Park

We were treated to a surprisingly entertaining match at Goodison Park on Sunday, with Everton edging out Wolverhampton Wanderers in a five-goal thriller.

Both sides had struggled offensively this season and came into this match having only scored three goals between them in as many Gameweeks.

We analyse the main Fantasy talking points from what was the penultimate Premier League fixture before the international break in our article below.

Everton 3-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Richarlison (£7.9m) x2, Alex Iwobi (£5.9m)| Romain Saiss (£4.4m), Raul Jimenez (£7.4m)
  • Assists: Moise Kean (£6.8m), Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m), Lucas Digne (£6.1m)| Willy Boly (£5.0m)

Wolves were one of the safest bets last season when it came to security of starts for their Fantasy assets.

Nuno Espirito Santo named the same starting XI for the first nine matches of the season and eight of their first-choice team started at least 34 league games – only injury likely preventing Diogo Jota (£6.4m) and Jonny (£5.5m) from doing the same.

That trustworthiness in Santo’s Premier League team selections is on the wane, however, with Wolves’ ongoing involvement in the UEFA Europa League looking like it will have a significant impact on their FPL assets.

Last week was a bit of a warning, with Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) benched after playing the full 90 minutes in Turin less than 72 hours earlier.

There was more widespread rotation this time round, with Jota, Matt Doherty (£6.0m), Jonny and Joao Moutinho (£5.5m) all making way from the starting XI that drew with Burnley last weekend – all bar Doherty (who is set for minor knee surgery) of that quartet had played at least 80 minutes against the Serie A side on Thursday night.

Should Wolves progress to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, they will now play two games a week, every week, from now until 2020 (except during international breaks, of course).

Rotation could be here to stay then, particularly as Santo has shown a keenness to name strong teams in the Europa League.

Speaking after the match, Santo said:

It was a tough cycle, everybody knows what we’ve been through. We played Thursday night, it was a big high on emotions but we recover. Coming to Goodison Park is very difficult, even if you have 15 days of rest it’s going to be hard.

We want to play and challenge ourselves by playing two times a week against fantastic teams. The Premier League is very tough, and we have a new challenge ahead of us, but I’m proud. The cycle was tough but the answer very good.

This match saw Doherty and Jonny replaced by Adama Traore (£5.0m) and Ruben Vinagre (£4.4m) on the flanks, with the pros and cons of those two options at wing-back apparent in Sunday’s match on Merseyside.

Adama has really impressed from an attacking sense in the last fortnight and it was from one of his rampaging runs down the right that Wolves’ first goal came: Lucas Digne (£6.1m), who struggled against the former Middlesbrough man, unable to stop a cross that eventually found its way to goalscorer Romain Saiss (£4.4m).

The defensive side of Adama’s game has always been in question though and Wolves look less secure at the back with him in the side.

Indeed, Alex Iwobi (£5.9m) left Adama for dead for Everton’s second goal, nipping in front of the stand-in wing-back to head the Toffees back in front.

Vinagre is arguably less of a secure option than Jonny on the opposite side, too, and it was noticeable how many crosses Everton managed to fire over in this match: only Crystal Palace attempted more in Gameweek 4.

The pair couldn’t be blamed much for Everton’s other two goals, though: Conor Coady (£5.0m) and Rui Patricio (£5.1m) getting in a mix-up for Richarlison‘s (£7.9m) opener and Willy Boly (£5.0m) caught ball-watching for the Brazilian’s headed winner.

Boly was then sent off for a second bookable offence late on and will miss Gameweek 5.

Speaking after full-time, Santo said of his side’s defending:

Very bad. We made mistakes that usually we don’t, but it’s part of the process, keep on going and work.

I wish I had the answer, but it’s work – lack of communication, it happens, I’ve been there, I know how it is.

Both situations of crossing and players coming from behind attacking the box, we should defend better.

All of a sudden, with Boly suspended, Doherty’s fitness an issue, rotation a possibility and the wing-back understudies not offering that same amount of protection, Wolves’ defence isn’t quite looking the formidable unit it did in Gameweek 1.

Santo gave the following update on Doherty after full-time:

He has to have a small surgery. It’s something that is bothering him. I don’t know [how long he’ll be out]. We have to keep on giving him time to recover, first the pain that he has in the knee, then back to fitness.

Further forward, there was frustration for Jota’s owners as he emerged as a second-half substitute for the dreaded one-pointer – his sixth straight blank in FPL.

Jimenez was fairly quiet all told but popped for his second league goal in as many games, nodding in from close range following a Boly flick-on.

Patrick Cutrone (£5.8m) was arguably the Wolves forward who most impressed, with his movement bright early on – although there understandably wasn’t the same telepathic relationship with Jimenez as the Mexican shares with Jota.

It was the Italian’s near-post run that caused the chaos that led to Saiss’s goal and a promising debut from the summer signing would be a further worry for owners of Jota and Jimenez, given that the pair now have something they didn’t have last season: competition for a place up front.

Everton were also less than secure at the back.

The Toffees had ridden their luck in keeping a clean sheet against Watford in Gameweek 2, while Silva’s side had shipped two goals in the defeat to Aston Villa the week after and then again against Lincoln City in midweek.

Here their full-backs were given a torrid time by Wolves’ wide players, with Digne partly to blame for both of the visitors’ goals – although the Frenchman delivered at the other end with another assist.

The Toffees didn’t concede too many shots, at least (only Liverpool and Manchester City allowed fewer in Gameweek 4), and some frailties were to be expected given that Silva chose this game to bed in three of his summer signings: Iwobi, Moise Kean (£6.8m) and Fabian Delph (£5.4m).

The hard-working Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.9m) and Bernard (£6.5m) were benched, while defensive midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.5m) was also sacrificed from the centre of the park; Delph was impressive in his stead but is not quite the same sort of midfield spoiler as the Frenchman, the injured Jean-Philippe Gbamin (£4.9m) or, more pertinently, the departed Idrissa Gueye.

We’ll have to give the Toffees more time to see if they can recapture their impressive defensive form of the last six months but going forward, Silva’s side are starting to look more of a threat.

The front four who started today also lined up in midweek, when Everton put four past Lincoln.

Kean battled gamely without looking too much of a threat, nodding over one Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.8m) cross and getting the decisive interception that led to an assist for Richarlison’s first goal.

It was the three players behind him who most caught the eye, however.

Iwobi had a promising full league debut on the left flank, nodding in a Sigurdsson cross to put Everton 2-1 up having almost teed up the Icelandic international with a delivery from out wide early in the game.

For all the talk of Everton’s new signings, it was the tried-and-tested FPL options of Sigurdsson and Richarlison who perhaps impressed the most.

Richarlison registered two attacking returns in the same game for the first time since Gameweek 11 of last season and worked very hard for the cause, while Sigurdsson’s distribution was excellent and he arguably merited more than the five FPL points he collected for his efforts.

Confidence has always looked key to Richarlison’s form, as Silva himself said after full-time:

Richarlison scored two very important goals for us and he will keep improving in our offensive moments. He is a fantastic player and a fantastic boy. How he works not just with the ball, but his work without the ball.

He is a good example to all our players and very good for our spirit inside the dressing room. We will keep working with him and he will keep improving.

He is the type of player who sometimes needs good performances and goals to win more confidence. The way he celebrated the goal against Lincoln shows how he needs those types of moments.

He started the game against Crystal Palace after just 13 days working with the team. He cannot work miracles – footballers are human also. They need time to rest and prepare. He needs time to be in the best physical condition.

Everton’s fixture schedule remains positive but Fantasy managers without representation from Silva’s side may wish to see further evidence of this new-found attacking cohesion before reviving interest in the Toffees’ midfield and forward options, given the goal drought that preceded this week.

For existing owners of Sigurdsson et al, there were at least encoraging signs going into a meeting with a porous Bournemouth side in Gameweek 5.

      No. If pep didn't trust him he would have used different options on left back over the last half year.

      1. Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 8 days ago

        But none of the threats were available to him - Mendy, Cancelo and Angelino.

        I’m a City season ticket holder and he has looked alright, tidy with the ball and good passer but muscles out of getting way in defence too often. Wouldn’t say his place is secure by any means.

    Had a terrible week scored 42 with this lot and dropped massively in rank, Early days and not disaster stations yet but what to do?

    Had taken out Deeney for Pukki and Moura for Lanzini prior for a -4. Main priority at this point is KDB and/or Aguero.

    Pope (Heaton)
    Robbo Digne Zinc Lundy (Rico)
    Salah Sterling Mount Lanzini (Dendo)
    Pukki Kane (Greenwood)

    Any advice moving into GW5 appreciated. I don't think this team is bad enough to WC at this point.

    1. Spark Dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Sorry 0.5 ITB

    2. Klein
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      You just need some kdb love. Maybe downgrade kane to fund dendo upgrade. Having Robbo instead of TAA has been a killer too.

    3. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Decent team. Just a bad week, we all have them. Unlucky that alternative players picked up the points.
      KDB/Aguero > Sterling
      TAA > Robbo
      Auba > Kane

      1. Spark Dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 8 days ago

        Thank you chaps. Yeh, KDB is killing me need him ASAP.

  5. Klein
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 8 days ago

    Is Barnes really as good as the hype? His goals in first game wasnt really convincing to me. How did he look on the other games?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Has great stats but think him and Wood will finish even for goals by the season end as they usually do.

      1. Klein
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 8 days ago

        Woods stats look really bad though. Not getting much shots atm.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 8 days ago

          Barnes stats look overly good. Think they will both regress to mean and finish with 10-15 goals each

    2. Monkey Pits
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      He’s a volume shooter, abit like Salah in that sense. High quantity of shots bound to get goals.

    3. COK3Y5MURF - UJFC
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      It's the whole year, not just these games. Aguero and Mane are the only players with more league goals than Barnes in 2019.

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 8 days ago

        Really? Surely Vardy is ahead?

        1. COK3Y5MURF - UJFC
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 8 days ago

          He might've overtaken him after this weekend's brace, I'm not sure. But it was Barnes before this weekend.

      2. lilmessipran
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 8 days ago

        Vardy?

    4. Bob Vrabkab
      • 8 Years

      In short, no

  7. MysticMac17
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 8 days ago

    Current side. 1FT and nothing in the bank. Who to replace Laporte with?

    Ederson
    Laporte Digne TAA VVD Robbo
    Sterling Pepe Anderson Ceballos
    Haller

    Subs: Pukki, Cantwell, Surridge

    1. Klein
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Otamendi i guess.

    2. JohnBlack
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Too heavy defence

    3. antis0cial
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Downgrade and upgrade elsewhere.

  8. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 8 days ago

    Do we think Son is worth 3.2 more than Mount? Would mean downgrading, Robbo to a 5.1 defender.

    1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Not yet

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Depends on CL.

  9. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
    • 3 Years

    Vardy is the top PL scorer since Rodgers has started managing in the PL. They really work for each other

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      I remember he really got the best out of Suarez and Sturridge at Liverpool.

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Vardy is going to be awesome this year.
      Jump on while he’s still cheap

  10. CFC1990
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 8 days ago

    a) Jota to Barnes

    b) Jota and Mount to Haller and Robinson

    2FTs.

    Haller has the state but is it worth losing Mount to get him?

    Thanks!

  11. Markus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    Who do we feel is more nailed going forward, Abraham or mount? Obviously both performance dependant but feels like with CHO returning, and Loftus cheek later more competition for places for mount?

    1. Monkey Pits
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Mount more nailed for sure.

    2. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Hm. Assuming Mount can start to be a bit more creative and keeps up his current pwrformance levels, I'd assume he has a monopoly on the 8 until RLC comes back.

    3. Monkey Pits
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Mount can do LW AM CM, while Abraham would only play in the single number 9 role.

    4. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Mount

    5. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Mount

  12. cylus11 ( Manager) - Russia…
    • 9 Years

    Aguero or KDB. Already have Sterling.
    Will KDB keep continuing the form he is in.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1FT 0.7m itb

    Three things in mind - downgrade one of the premiums and upgrade defence, Mina -> Digne or AWB, Mina -> TAA, Ward/Mings (-4)

      I think holding as many premiums as possible is a smart move at the mo. I think you could roll your FT

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Aguero to Vardy. And upgrade defenders

    I plummeted this week from top 3k to approx 100k. Looking at teams who overtook me in my mini leagues; they all have Aguero and KDB and I don’t. Wondering whether I need to wildcard - I can’t keep sitting behind the sofa for city’s upcoming run of fixtures:

    Pope (McGovern)
    Digne, TAA, otamendi (Montoya, Kelly)
    Salah, Sterling, mount, martial (Cantwell)
    Wilson, Barnes, Pukki

    No free transfers

      Downgrade Wilson and upgrade Martial to KDB. Wait to see what injuries come back after IB though for now.

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      You only need KDB
      Aguero isn’t nailed after IB

    Rival has Kun and will be captaining him for next few weeks. I think my team is quite solid, but only player I feel missing out is Aguero. For as long as I’ve played this game, he’s been the most trusted captaincy option and first name on my team sheet, however this season i left him out.

    Do you think it’s time to smash this team with wildcard, to bring in Aguero? Or stick and trust my boys? 1ft, 0.2itb

    Thanks!

      Can’t have them all, I’m in a similar boar and sticking. Only way to bring him in without getting rid of a big hitter is losing pool def and going cheap at back.

    Anyone else tempted to ditch Greenwood and revert to three up top? Pukki, Barnes, Tammy ... suddenly a choice of high value budget forwards.

      • 3 Years

      I have already

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 8 days ago

      Nah. More value in mids and attacking defenders

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 8 days ago

        Total points score so far says differently. Only van Aanholt, TAA and Digne delivering of the defenders at this point. Mids similar value as forwards, more or less.

    3. Sloopy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Yep. I did it last week. Pukki, Barnes and Haller. Only downside was that I sold Vardy to make this happen.......

    After a transfer ban and losing their best player, Chelsea still have a level squad with United somehow.

      While Vardy is decent long-term, maybe you could without for the next few weeks. I'd shoehorn Aguero. My own WC has Jun, Sterling and Kdb with 3 liv at present, threadbare elsewhere!

  22. zkinflint

    Which would u pick A) Mount B) James

    Thank you!

    10.1 to spend on a striker. Doing my head in!

    A. Barnes
    B. Haller
    C. Vardy
    D. Firmino

    1. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year

      B depending on what you do with the extra cash, otherwise C. I have Haller and Pukki and considering formation switch to get Tammy in too.

  25. De Gea is GOAT
