The Mount injury latest as Chelsea’s penalty-taking hierarchy is addressed

Chelsea and Liverpool meet at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 6 and both sides were in UEFA Champions League action on Tuesday evening.

The two clubs started off their European campaigns with defeats but the main Fantasy talking points were less about the disappointing results, as we will discuss below.

Chelsea 0-1 Valencia

Chelsea and Fantasy managers are awaiting further news on an injury to Mason Mount (£6.5m) after the in-demand FPL midfielder limped from the field of play after just a quarter of an hour of the Blues’ opening group match of the 2019/20 Champions League.

Mount was on the receiving end of a robust challenge from the visitors’ Francis Coquelin and had attempted to carry on after sustaining an ankle injury but was replaced by Pedro (£7.0m) soon after.

Manager Frank Lampard said afterwards:

He’s got an ankle injury but we don’t know how bad it is. We’ll have to assess it in the next 48 hours to see the scale of the injury.

It was a shame because he started the game well and it meant we had to make the change early on.

Football London journalist Alan Smith reported that Mount limped through the mixed zone after full-time and added that the player was hopeful of being fit for Sunday’s game, although Emerson Palmieri (£5.5m) had made similar noises after sustaining a hamstring injury in Italy’s win over Finland and has not featured in Chelsea’s last two matches.

Fantasy managers, then, ought to be patient and await an official diagnosis amid the groundless speculation on social media and beyond, particularly as there is FPL value tied up in the most-bought midfielder of 2019/20.

Chelsea sit top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 7-17, so the hope for existing owners would be that recovery is swift (or that any injury update is conclusive enough for us to make a decision on his future).

Tammy Abraham (£7.3m) is the most-bought FPL asset in the run-up to Gameweek 6 and his ever-growing band of owners would have been relieved to see him come through last night’s test unscathed, although the in-form striker couldn’t add to his tally of seven goals in three fixtures.

The young forward made a bright start to proceedings and his movement was impressive, first forcing a save from Jasper Cillessen with a near-post dart and then beating his marker to head a Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) cross wide.

Abraham found life much tougher thereafter, though, with his other three attempts blocked and Valencia’s backline doing well to starve the Chelsea number nine of service and space.

Willian (£7.0m) had a similar tail-off in the second half but was among the Blues’ most eye-catching attacking assets early on, playing just off Abraham with Mount (and then Pedro) in a 3-4-2-1.

The Brazil international was again preferred to Pedro, Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) and Ross Barkley (£5.7m) for the second game running and could, perhaps should, have been on the scoresheet, blazing over when played through by Mateo Kovacic (£5.5m) and then forcing a fine near-post save from Cillessen.

Willian registered more key passes than anyone on show, although it should be said that he will likely not have the benefit of taking corners and indirect free-kicks when Mount is back to fitness.

Although not as deadly as they were at Molineux, Chelsea still had 22 shots to Valencia’s eight and Lampard felt they were deserving of at least a point:

We probably should have got the win, or at least a draw.

We created enough good chances, had a penalty and then conceded from one shot on target. It’s a harsh lesson of Champions League football because we played pretty well but lost.

The good news is we’ve got five more games left in the group but we should have got more tonight.

As Lampard mentioned above, Chelsea were gifted a glorious chance to equalise in the 87th minute when they were awarded a spot-kick after a handball by Daniel Wass.

The penalty-taking running order has been the source of some debate for a while now, with Barkley having taken two in pre-season.

Abraham also stepped up from 12 yards over the summer with Barkley off the pitch and Jorginho (£5.0m) on it, although the Italian midfielder was given the nod over Abraham when the Blues were awarded a penalty in the Super Cup (Barkley was off the field for that one, too).

To complicate matters further, Willian – who wasn’t on the pitch for any of the above – was also thought to feature high up in the spot-kick hierarchy.

All four players were involved in the discussions when referee Cüneyt Çakir pointed to the spot, with Willian looking the most miffed about Barkley’s insistence that he should take the penalty.

The former Everton midfielder almost inevitably missed his subsequent effort from 12 yards, crashing the ball off the bar and into the crowd.

Lampard said there was no issue with Barkley stepping up to take the kick, however, and even confirmed that the England international was first in line:

Ross is the penalty taker. He’s scored a couple in pre-season and he’s been the taker whenever he’s started or come on in games. I don’t know what the conversation was but Willian and Jorginho were the penalty takers from the start and Ross was once he came on.

Based on the comments above, then, Abraham looks to be fourth in the running order behind Barkley, Willian and Jorginho.

Chelsea’s backline had one of their quieter games of the season, with budget FPL defender Fikayo Tomori (£4.5m) perhaps the pick of the centre-halves on his third successive start.

The Blues were again undone by an admittedly well-worked set-piece routine, however, and it is now seven games in all competitions without a clean sheet for Lampard’s troops.

That aversion to shut-outs is the major downside to Chelsea’s defenders in FPL, with Tomori’s budget status and the sidelined Emerson’s attacking threat otherwise catching the eye.

Lampard stuck with the same 3-4-2-1 that he used at Wolves on Saturday and their two wing-backs certainly caught the eye from an offensive perspective against Valencia, with Azpilicueta (who has had a less-than-stellar start to 2019/20) getting forward to supply three chances for Abraham and Willian.

Alonso, meanwhile, had four attempts on goal, including one effort from a direct free-kick.

Whether Lampard sticks with this system going forward remains to be seen, particularly with N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) nearing a return.

The Chelsea boss had cited Wolves’ use of a 3-5-2 as one of his reasons for the system change on Saturday, although played the formation against Valencia’s 4-4-2 and had also mentioned that three centre-halves gave his team “a bit more security on face value”.

Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Kepa, Christensen, Tomori, Zouma (Giroud 73), Azpilicueta, Kovacic (Barkley 80), Jorginho, Alonso, Willian, Mount (Pedro 15), Abraham.

Napoli 2-0 Liverpool

Andrew Robertson (£6.9m) recovered from a minor knock that he picked up in the win over Newcastle United on Saturday to play the full 90 minutes in Naples on Tuesday.

Robertson was part of an unchanged backline that again failed to keep a clean sheet, with the Reds now having recorded just one shut-out in their seven competitive matches this season.

Adrian (£4.6m) had to be alert in what was an admittedly tough start to Liverpool’s Champions League title defence but let’s not forget that Jurgen Klopp’s side suffered a similar late defeat against Napoli a year ago and at least offered more of an attacking threat in this latest fixture.

Liverpool’s front three all had chances, with Sadio Mane (£11.6m) twice testing Alex Meret from difficult angles and Roberto Firmino (£9.5m) heading only narrowly wide of the Napoli goalkeeper’s upright.

Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) had five attempts on goal, meanwhile, and should have twice been found by Mane and James Milner (£5.4m) when unmarked and in excellent positions.

Salah forced Meret into a flying stop when pouncing on a Napoli error but in truth, this wasn’t a vintage attacking display from Liverpool in what was their sternest test of 2019/20 so far.

All three of the Reds’ premium options completed 90 minutes, although there is now five days of recovery before the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool’s rather limited central midfield did little creatively while the fact that Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.1m) failed to register a shot or key pass between them perhaps illustrated the visitors’ understandably more conservative approach – this was, indeed, a Napoli team who had ripped Klopp’s side to shreds on the counter-attack in pre-season.

Adrian had to make a smart double-stop from Fabian Ruiz in the first half and produced a superb save to deny Dries Mertens after the break but couldn’t keep out the Belgian’s 82nd-minute penalty after Robertson had controversially been adjudged to have brought down José Callejón.

Napoli’s second goal was all of Liverpool’s own making, however, with Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) – who was caught under the ball for that aforementioned Mertens chance – producing a sloppy pass that allowed Fernando Llorente to nip in and score.

All in all, this was a better performance defensively and offensively than Liverpool had served up in Naples 11 months ago and a less-than-watertight Chelsea backline will likely provide the Reds with a lot more attacking freedom than Kalidou Koulibaly and co. did last night.

Reflecting on the game, Klopp said:

It was much more of a game than last year when we played here and lost 1-0. We had a lot of good moments; I think we controlled the game in a lot of moments, we had a lot of interceptions, we won the ball and had counter-attacks. Both teams showed a lot of respect for each other, very compact, defended well and that’s how you play a game against a strong side, to be honest. It was really hard work for both teams.

The second half was a bit [more with] wilder moments – counter-attack, counter-attack and then lose the ball when you are in the box and then have to run back. Then we started to control the game again and then we conceded the 1-0 and that was the game-changer tonight.

We have to accept the result and we do that. We are really critical with ourselves but it was not a really, really bad performance; it was a game which you can win at Napoli, but we didn’t because we didn’t score and that doesn’t work then really.

Divock Origi (£5.4m) wasn’t involved, with Klopp saying on Monday:

The update on Div is that it is not too serious. We expect him [to be out for] between one and two weeks, but it depends a little bit on when he can deal with the pain. It is nothing really; it’s a feeling, but it should be fine.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson (Shaqiri 87′), Fabinho, Milner (Wijnaldum 65′); Salah, Firmino, Mane.

    Then Mount situation makes my move that i planned so much more easy to do 😛 Rashford, Haller, Mount > Tammy, Son, Ayew (-4). Will bench Tammy this week and give Ayew a start, after LIV, Ayew will be warming bench. Would you do it?

    Sterling - Salah - KDB - Cantwell - Son
    Tammy - Pukki (Ayew)

    How does it look long-ish term?

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      I like the moves but wouldn't bench Abraham

      1. In a Rush
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        This

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Don’t bench TA

  4. goblin140
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    What would you do with this team assuming Mount is out? 1 FT, 0.2m ITB

    Pope
    TAA Zinchenko Lundstram Soyuncu
    Salah Sterling KDB Lanzini
    Pukki Rashford

    non playing Bench (Mount included)

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      easy save FT

      1. goblin140
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        You think so? If he's out for 3-4+ weeks he really needs to go and I'd be tempted to bring Cantwell in this week, he'd be a better option to play than Soyuncu this week.

        1. Salt'N'Pepe
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          depends on how long he is out for of course if its 4-6 weeks then id get rid

    2. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Team looks ok, defence doesnt have great fixtures obviously for this week.

      But might be worth saving a FT, next week can do Rash -> Tammy potentially

      1. goblin140
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        I guess it depends how long he's out for. If it's for a while he needs to go, looking at him, Rash and Lanzini out for Cantwell, Barnes and Son over the next couple of GWs, and that would mean Mount > Cantwell makes sense this GW.

        1. KingOllie
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Mount to cantwell makes sense if hes out for a good few weeks, but you probably want chelsea cover - their fixtures are so nice

    3. SkeletONv01
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      If hes fit or out for 1 game i would save FT, if out for more then 1 game, i would get rid of him.

  5. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Think ill most likely be playing my WC nearer December. What moves would you make going forward with this in mind to this squad.

    Already made my moves for this GW so would need to be from GW7 on wards.

    Ryan
    Coleman Otamendi VanDijk
    Cantwell Salah McGinn KDB Sterling
    Abraham Pukki

    Button Lundstram Greenwood Kelly

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      should point out ive got 3m ITB

    2. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Get Son in for McGinn? Maybe by downgrading Coleman

      1. Salt'N'Pepe
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        That was my exact thoughts 🙂

  6. KingOllie
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Iv had an awful start to the season by my standards (Pukki rekking me mostly)

    But how does this team look? I still have WC intact but worrying about having no liverpool attackers / pukki / tammy now

    Heaton
    Robertson / Coleman / Aurier (Lundstram , Soyboy)
    Sterling / KDB / Son / Mount* / Cantwell
    Auba / Haller (Greeny)

    Got 0.6 itb. Do i just bench Mount and play Lundstram?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Fine for this week. Reassess Mount when we get news

  7. Tshelby
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    If Mount is out this weekend what should I do?

    A) Play Hayden - BHA (H)
    B) Play Lundstram - EVE (A)
    C) Play Soyuncu - TOT (H)
    D) Get rid would lose no value

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      See below. If ONLY out this weekend, I’m just having Lundstram off the bench (however for you maybe Hayden?). If confirmed out for more than 2 weeks I’d sell.

      You bought at 6.5/6.4 then? 6.2 here so I’d lose a bit, hence my wariness to sell unless he misses 2+ weeks

      1. Tshelby
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah if he is confirmed out for more than 2 week I would also get rid so probably if not I will play Hayden, I think.

  8. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Cmon mason - be fit mate.

    Or hopefully Lampard at least says “he’ll be back by Brighton” aka keep and bench, or “it’ll be 4-6 weeks” aka sell

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      im praying he will be back for Brighton - hes v important at that price point.

      Otherwise gonna have to go bargain punting and that never ends well

  9. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Got 0FT, 1.4 ITB, WC still available but was thinking (barring injuries tonight) I’ll save it for now and just have Lundstram off the bench for Mount. Can WC next week if needbe ie if Mount out long term, Sterling/KDB/Digne/Zinchenko all fail again). Thoughts??

    Pope // Button
    TAA Digne Zinchenko // Lundstram Rico
    Sterling Salah KDB Mount* Cantwell
    Pukki Barnes // Greenwood

    Sterling(c) unless he gets a full run out I think.

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      if you save and mount is out a while, next week you can do Mount + Greenwood -> Hayden + Tammy i think?

      No need to wildcard yet

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah something like that perhaps.

    2. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Looks good to Save a FT, you looking to get Son for GW7?

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        HAha, see below. Perhaps, if my premiums fail again

    3. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Man City won't fail again

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Ahah I bloody hope not, got burnt so bad with Sterling(c) last week.

        Barring injury/90 odd mins today I’ll probably captain him again too - 3rd time lucky?

  10. Nigel Knows
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 19 days ago

    This would be my Arsenal team:

    Leno
    Chambers Holding Tierney
    Bellerin Willock Torreira Ceballos Kolasinac
    Pepe Aubameyang Nelson

    3-5-2 for Arsenal

    1. Nigel Knows
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Willock sub

      I cheated and selected 12

    2. Lemongrab
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Are you talking for tonight or best 11?

      1. Lemongrab
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        *tomorrow

      2. Nigel Knows
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Best XI imo

  11. Salt'N'Pepe
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on the following for GW7:

    In brackets is who they face in GW7

    Coleman (MCI) + McGinn (BUR) -> Soyuncu (NEW) + Son (SHU) (-4)

    1. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah I would

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Yeah I’d prob do that. I could do something similar if I ditched Digne I think... though if I did that he’d probably score a FK v city

    3. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Lot of football to be played before gw7, no point to think about it right now.

      Son(SOU) btw

  12. Sailboats
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 19 days ago

    Play

    1- Rico (away to Soton)
    or
    2- Lundstram (away to Everton)?

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 19 days ago

      Rico

    2. Trophé Mourinho
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Yea Rico

      • Sailboats
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks both. I'll play Rico

    3. Trophé Mourinho
        2 months, 19 days ago

        We need 4 striker spots

        1. Nigel Knows
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          16 man squad

        2. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah I need that. And about 7m extra budget

        3. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Yep

      • Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Owners of both Sterling and KDB - if one or both fail again (bloody hope not though), would you consider ditching one of them to get someone else in?

        Namely, I’m looking at Son...

        1. Sailboats
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Maybe Sterling > Son or Mane. I'm not selling KDB

          1. ChelseaBlues223
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 19 days ago

            This

        2. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Nope
          Will wait till the dream run gets over.
          One game we'll get 10+ from both & will rise like mad in OR.
          I live for gw's like that 😀

        3. Lemongrab
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Have no plans to sell either but another Son haul and Sterling/KDB blank and I know I'll be getting an itchy trigger finger

        4. Concrete
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          KdB to Son for me after this GW

          1. In a Rush
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 19 days ago

            Yes I think another blank from sterling and he’s gone, I never have much luck with him. Had a really crap start something has to give.

        5. Pranav Santhosh
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Don’t think I will the tbh. The potential moves tempting me is sterling out on a wildcard but trying to hold onto the wc or kdb to martial to free up funds but united have arsenal next week so that’s unlikely as well

      • Mackans
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Thoughts on my WC team? (0.0 ib)

        Pope
        VVD Digne Aurier
        Sterling De Bruyne Son Cantwell
        Auba Abraham Pukki
        Bench: Button, Lundstram, Rico, Hayden

        1. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Average-ish

      • YoungPretender
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 19 days ago

        Feels weird that I'm stuck between saving transfer or wildcarding.

        Current team;

        Pope Button
        VVD Digne Zinchenko Montoya Lundstram
        Salah Sterling KDB Mount McGinn
        Pukki Haller Greenwood

        Could WC to this;

        Pope Button
        TAA Otamendi Mings Soyuncu Lundstram
        Mane KDB Son Cantwell Hayden
        Aubameyang Pukki Abraham

          The WC team is looking really good, but no need to with your team. City will bounce back and I think you'll see points from Pool at Chelsea.

          I was going to wc to v similar but saving due to not being keen on Sons and Vardy fixture this week. And want to have Sterling and Salah for this final week. They could go crazy

          Save

        Not sure which team to go with. Any advice?

        Pope - (Button)
        TAA - AMN - Soyuncu - (Rico) - (Lundstram)
        Son - De Bruyne - Mane - Cantwell - Sterling
        Abraham - Pukki - (4.5)

        OR

        Pope - (Button)
        Digne - Soyuncu - 4.5 - (Rico) - (Lundstram)
        Son - Mane - Cantwell - Sterling - (4.5)
        Aubameyang - Abraham - Pukki

        Basically, a toss up between:
        A: TAA, AMN, De Bruyne
        B: Digne, 4.5 Def , Aubameyang

        Thanks!

        Captain Sterling or Pukki?

        1. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Sterling, no contest.

        2. In a Rush
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Pukki

        3. AzzaroMax99
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          It is bald to cap Pukki. But it is start of the season, nothing to loose, so I would try Pukki. Why not?

      • hogree

        Still no clearer on what to do with this lot...

        2 FT 0 ITB

        Pope - Heaton
        VVD* - TAA - Digne - Montoya* - Rico
        Sterling - Salah - McGinn* - Mount - Dendoncker
        Kane* - Pukki - Greenwood

        * marks players I'm feeling unsure on

        Any advice?

        1. In a Rush
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          I guess you need a bit more info about mount as well before deciding what to do.

        2. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Kane has to go. Any of the cheaper forwards will do the trick, whichever one you fancy will grab a few goals.

        3. Graceless Goof
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Kane out

        4. KingOllie
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 19 days ago

          Do Mount -> Cantwell if hes out long term, then next week do Kane + Mcginn -> Tammy + Son 😀

          Almost identical to my team, except I've fit Mane in instead of de bruyne and lost some power in defence.

          I prefer the 25 WC's you posted with Mane it more than the 15 you posted with Son it.
