Jota off the mark as Wolves show improvement at Palace

Wolverhampton Wanderers are still without a league win this season but were thankful to come away from Selhurst Park with a point after a last-gasp leveller on Sunday.

We round up the main Fantasy talking points from their 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace in our Scout Notes article below.

Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) own-goal | Diogo Jota (£6.2m)
  • Assists: Joel Ward (£4.5m) | Adama Traore (£5.0m)
  • Bonus: Jota, Traore x3, Ward x1

After an underwhelming start to 2019/20, there were faint glimmers of hope on Sunday that Wolves are beginning to awake from their early-season stupor.

A 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace is hardly Roy of the Rovers stuff and Fantasy managers will likely need a lot more persuading but there were a couple of positives to take from this match at Selhurst Park.

The strength of character needed to fight back from 1-0 down after Romain Saiss‘ (£4.4m) 73rd-minute dismissal was to be applauded, especially after the struggles of recent weeks when succumbing to defeats to Everton, Chelsea and Braga.

Perhaps more significantly, though, Wolves looked more like their usual selves in the opening 45 minutes, creating the better chances and restricting Palace to just one shot on goal.

This was Wolves of old, with Nuno Espirito Santo sending his troops out in a 3-4-3 (the formation favoured in the first three months of 2018/19) and Matt Doherty (£6.0m) evoking memories of last season when popping up in the box to force a superb save from Vicente Guaita (£5.0m).

Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) also had a gilt-edged opportunity to open the scoring but saw his goalbound shot blocked on the line, while Diogo Jota (£6.2m) fired straight at Guaita after an excellent one-touch Wolves move.

The 3-4-3 saw Adama Traore (£5.0m) join Jota and Raul Jimenez (£7.3m) in a front three, with the Mexico international the spearhead of the attack.

The advantages of that system were evident in the first half with the West Midlands club looking more fluent in attack, although Nuno Espirito Santo’s side reverted to a 3-5-2 from around the hour-mark as Palace fought back into the match and Wolves’ central midfield became overrun.

Still, it needed a huge slice of luck for Palace to take the lead – an off-target Joel Ward (£4.5m) effort being deflected in by Dendoncker – and the Eagles didn’t really carve out too many clear-cut chances until Saiss was sent off and Wolves had to chase the game.

Santo said of his side’s display:

The first half was very good. It was very well played and I think this is what we should stick to and build from the way we played in the first half.

We played very good, created chances, managed and controlled the game and this is what we want from the growing of the team to sustain this performance because one of the reasons is if you play so good in the first half and produce so many things you must punish. That allows you to control the game in a better way.

One thing we Fantasy managers will have to get used to at Wolves is rotation, which remains a major downside to their assets.

Depending on their EFL Cup progress and because of their UEFA Europa League involvement, Santo’s outfit may well play twice a week, every week between now and 2020.

This time it was the turn of Ruben Neves (£5.5m) to drop to the bench, while Ryan Bennett (£5.0m) was missing from the matchday squad for the second Gameweek in a row – although his absence is more about tactical preferences and form than rotation.

Neves’ benching means that Jimenez, Conor Coady (£5.0m) and Rui Patricio (£5.1m) are now the only ever-present starters for Wolves in the Premier League this season. At this stage last year, Santo had yet to make a single change to his starting XI.

The Wolves boss said after full-time:

It will be the same. There are always changes depending on what we need from the game.

The players that we want to manage and realise we have a game-plan. It is impossible to do what we did last season, I think we played ten times with the same XI.

You have to realise the situation but we have a squad and we trust in our squad. Every player has to be ready to grab their chance.

While there were promising signs from a defensive perspective from Wolves, it should be said that they were up against one of the limpest attacks in the division.

Palace had only one shot on target in the first hour of Sunday’s game and no club has scored fewer goals or carved out fewer ‘big chances’ than Roy Hodgson’s side in 2019/20.

Indeed, their only real clear opportunities came late in the game when breaking on the counter-attack, with Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m) and Christian Benteke (£5.8m) wasting excellent chances when clean through on goal.

Wilfried Zaha (£6.8m) looked a little more like his old tricky self, at least, and it will be interesting to monitor his form as a mid-price midfielder ahead of Palace’s fixture turn in Gameweek 14.

Zaha is yet to register a goal or assist in 2019/20, with a lack of pre-season and the biannual distraction of a failed move away from south London perhaps affecting his early-season performances.

The Fantasy potential is certainly there given his falling price and reclassified position and he did, after all, bank 21 attacking returns last season.

The Eagles sit bottom of our Season Ticker for defence until Gameweek 13 and few managers will be interested in recruiting any of the Palace backline over the coming two months, despite Hodgson’s side being only seconds away from banking their third straight clean sheet at home.

It could be argued that the return of Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) has perhaps made the Eagles temporarily weaker at the back, too, with the former Liverpool stopper still getting to grips with competitive football after a lengthy lay-off and looking rusty in the 4-0 defeat at Spurs last week.

Sakho was a little better in Gameweek 6 at least and Gary Cahill (£4.5m) delivered another excellent performance at centre-half, with the spot perhaps his to lose now.

Budget FPL defender Martin Kelly‘s (£4.1m) race may be run, however, as he was back among the substitutes for this match and now faces additional competition at centre-back from the fit-again James Tomkins (£5.0m).

Right-back Ward was culpable for Wolves’ equaliser as he made a complete hash of Traore’s 95th-minute cross to allow Jota to stab in his first league goal of the campaign.

Hodgson said of his side’s display:

I thought that we did more than enough in the second half of the game to win it. It was a very good second-half performance.

Perhaps we should have taken one or two of those very good chances that we created or those situations apart from the obvious chances that we created around the penalty area, then maybe we wouldn’t have been concerned about the last minute of the game and a cross coming into our box. But we didn’t.

We weren’t able unfortunately to manage those last five minutes by preventing them from getting any sniff at our goal or any balls in our penalty area and as a result, they took the chance.

    b) Eriksen+Ayew to Abraham+6.4 mid (don't know who)
    c) others

      How much is mount? I'd probably say B anyways, maybe with Yarmolenko/H.Wilson/McGinn

      1. RIDZ
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 23 days ago

        too bad mount is 6.5. Currently on McGinn which makes me save more money, or maybe Cantwell.

        This I was thinking B with Yarmo as a nice diff punt.

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 23 days ago

      Obviously A

  2. FOO FIGHTER

      Europa curse for Wolves quite clear this season.

      Dont touch Wolves. Europe curse for small team, tiny squad!

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 23 days ago

        Sadly true for now.
        But once they hit form of any kind there will be value to be had - especially Jota.

          Once they get eliminated from Europe

          1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 23 days ago

            Exactly this. Fixtures easing up too

        Happens to nearly every 'mid table' team who manage to get in Europa, squads arnt big enough. Newcastle, everton, burnley all had stinkers the year after getting into Europe.

      Kdb - Mane - Son (vc) - Mount

      Tammy (C) - Pukki - Vardy

      Heaton - Cabellos - Montoya - Lund

      Pukki (2) - Haller - Tammy

      Heaton - Mount - Montoya (6) - Lundy

        Not sure what 2 and 6 represent but team looks great! Love the Vardy pick

        1. wikidwhite

          Thanks, he has some incredible fixtures coming up

        Fail

    • Hansel

      Is Haller -> Abraham worth a -4?

      1. TaiwanHC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 23 days ago

        I already did it, so yes! Long term move really.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
          9 months, 23 days ago

          Do not think so unles you think Tammy will get at least a brace.

        • Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 23 days ago

          Took a pretty shitty -4 to get Haller in, feels so bad removing him 2 GWs later for another -4, but I also just want to look at this decision in isolation and not let past decisions affect too much

          1. Respect My Authoritah
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            9 months, 23 days ago

            Yeah, I think it is. Watching Haller play, he's similar to Wesley in that he helps the attacking midfielders around him, rather than being the main threat himself

        • mookie
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 23 days ago

          Don't think so

        • Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 23 days ago

          I did it last night

        1. skilldave
          • 9 Years

          Downgrade cabellos and upgrade elsewhere. Also not having one of Sterling or Aguero may hurt you over the coming weeks

        2. Jon Snow
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 23 days ago

          No Sterling or Salah is risky but could pay off. Ceballos is the only person I'd change

        3. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 23 days ago

          Very nice indeed

            • 8 Years
            9 months, 23 days ago

            Thanks! I’ve taken a hit this week already but will look to move Cabellos on and free up 1m, next he, giving me 1.6m itb.

        Morning!
        You know when you aren’t really awake anymore, it’s late, you’re tinkering, then suddenly realise you made the transfers? That’s what I did last night. Trouble is it was a -8! Hope it pays off. How am I looking?

        0.2itb -8 taken. WC still intact
        Heaton

        Thanks!

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

                2 moves for -8 not possible

                  Is if you already made one earlier.

              2. FOO FIGHTER
                  9 months, 23 days ago

                  Either going to pay off or hurt I guess.

            2. skilldave
              • 9 Years
              9 months, 23 days ago

              Looking good, decent TV there

              • 2 Years
              9 months, 23 days ago

              Red arrow this week likely unfortunately

              1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
                • 2 Years
                9 months, 23 days ago

                This is basically the GW3 wildcard template, with VVD instead of TAA

              2. FOO FIGHTER
                  9 months, 23 days ago

                  Yeah, the margins in the OR's are so fine. -4 even a risk but all depends who you transfered in and out for the -4.

                  -8 one step to far.

                  1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
                    • 2 Years
                    9 months, 23 days ago

                    Also depends where you end up after that -8. This team is so similar to most teams who havent taken any hits

                      • 2 Years

                      And the C is also topping the captain poll

                        Not decided on Cap yet. My KDB choice last week worked well so want to pick another good’un

                        9 months, 23 days ago

                        My team looks totally different. That is how I aim to climb...

                          9 months, 23 days ago

                          Same. Though I've climbed 600K ranks, into the top 100K this week just by getting my VC and first bench player right hahah

                          1. FOO FIGHTER
                              9 months, 23 days ago

                              Lund not always going to come to the rescue though, that and KDB VC.

                              I am actually happy not to have Raheem in my starting 11 to be honest. Blanks and no shows not a good sign with the Cup game later tonight.

                                No comments mate

                                Lund has come off my bench to give me 14 and 12 this season, I'll take that, dont need him every week but great player to have as backup

                        I agree. Never really planned to do it. Was playing around and fell asleep holding the phone and had confirmed it in my semi-slumber. Not happy but hopefully will work out

                          9 months, 23 days ago

                          There's quite a few active confirmation steps to go through, and the WC and Free Hit buttons are above the final one.

                          1. Don Kloppeone

                            Yeh basically was thinking of doing it and was on final screen but then fell asleep holding phone and had pressed confirm. Sounds unlikely but it did happen

                      Really annoyed with myself tbh. Literally fell asleep while playing around considering the moves and woke up to see I’d actually done it.

                      Fortunately I have WC still so if it’s too Templar and getting me nowhere I’ll have to change it up

                      1. FOO FIGHTER
                          9 months, 23 days ago

                          Does not look like you have to actually WC your team.

                          I took a -8 for GW5, my rank plummeted. Took another -8 for GW6 and my rank jumped nicely again. Hits sometimes bite big time and other times are for the better.

                          For GW7 I have taken a -4 and my moves were Mane and Greenwood to Mount and Firmino.

                          I feel confident. Just need to get captain spot in.

                                Decent overall. -8 could get you a small red but you might have been heading for that red without the moves as well.

                      Don't worry.abraham easily give you back that missing -8. 1 goal and minutes played already cover 6 pts. The captain choice is the most important thing to me.salah is the right captain choice this week.cheers

                    Barnes > Abraham for a bit? I think Barnes still looked sharp at the weekend, but there’s a significant value swing and Tammy is heavily owned.

                      meh, Tammy would need 1 goal just to break even. Tough call

                      Tough call, wait a week if you’re only losing 0.1. If more I would pull the trigger.

                              cheers, I'm worried as it was a knock and a dead leg combo. Hopefully he just gets rested midweek and plays over the wknd

                            Nice rank there. I am only 33 points behind you at 366k.

                            Damn, I hope GW7 is good for me.

                            Right captain is going to be crucial!

                              Cheers and GL mate!!

                              I usually go with a sure thing captain, aka Kun, Wilson or Auba, neither have blanked. But that's my strategy. There are lots of ways to get ahead...

                              1. FOO FIGHTER
                                  9 months, 23 days ago

                                  I am going Salah GW7. He has only let me down once this season. Also have Kun so finger may twitch before deadline.

                              would imagine most top teams will be resting the big players, maybe on the bench if needed

                          • Slitherene

                            9 months, 23 days ago

                            For the team I want to afford in the next few GW's, I have to downgrade both VvD & Zinchenko to 4.5 defenders.

                            VvD Zinchenko* Soyuncu
                            Bench : Diop Digne

                            Zinchenko -> Tomori
                            Or are there better options for 4.5?

                                Have Pope as my keeper, don't want a double up. Was thinking of considering a Villa defender.

                            With bad news for Lanzini injury circling around, I need short time (3-4 weeks punt) replacement. With 1,1 ITB and 6,5 sell value, I am looking to accumulate some cash with :

                            A) McGinn;

                            B) Yarmolenko;

                              No. Why would you sell Lundstram?

                              Zinchenko + Kelly ➡️ Söyüncü + someone. Not sure who. Maybe Tomori is worth a go.

                                Fixtures coming up? Liv, Wat, Ars, Whu. Surely more potential elsewhere

                                  I got him for 4.0. He plays OOP as an attacking box to box mid...too good to let go, we dont deserve him hahah should never have been a DEF

                                    Also did you see that pass? He has the eye and talent to produce attacking returns

                                  Both A & B with good fixtures but Spurs only 1 CS so far, CHE with nil.

                                  Tough call. Not sure really. I went BUR as they almost definitely wont be rotated

                            How come Soyuncu is appearing in so many drafts?

                            What am I missing or is he simply there because of his price point?

                            1. Respect My Authoritah
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              9 months, 23 days ago

                              Price and fixtures. Oh and Leicester being one of the best defences stats wise.

                              price point, Leicester fixtures and potential goal threat. Better than more expensive Vestergaard at Southampton in my mind, and yet he's risen in price

                            3. Jon Snow
                              • 4 Years

                              Leicester have a nice run of fixtures and apparently have good stats.

                              Plus it's not like anyone is keeping consistent clean sheets so might as well for 4.5..

                            4. Sgt Frank Drebin

                              9 months, 23 days ago

                              Leicester's defence pretty good. Only 4.5. But most importantly not many good options among the defenders...

                            Plan was going to be McGinn --> Mount for free, but after his 10 points, I'm now doubting that.

                            To get Chelsea cover, I am contemplating Sterling and Greenwood to Mount and Aubameyang for -4.

                            Yes or No?

                              I like it. Can rest Cantwell away, or play 352 at home. Benching headache but thats what you get when you have all the good uns!

                                Done with Signs man. Better mid options like mount for a similar price

                              I remember reading somewhere that Kelly is just injury cover and Hanley won't be played, so risky imo having 3 fodder options. Maybe downgrade Sterling/KdB and upgrade Greenwood/a defender.

                            Sterling and Greenwood to Ageuro and Guendozi?

                              Rashford injured and Greenwood scored in Europa league so he might come good but I like Aguero over Sterling

                              No LIV attackers is a bold choice

                                It's a gamble for sure. Could get firmino but wanted to have Vardy for that tasty New Castle fixture and maybe shift later. Liverpool aren't free scoring at any rate

                              Vardy to Firmino

                                Could do Vardy+Dsilva-> Firmino+Madison. But waiting on maddisons fitness.

                              Yes no pool attack and it is brave. But could work out very nicely over the next 6-7 weeks nice team

                            So this was my Gw 4 wildcard and rather surprisingly my present team. 😆
                            Burning a transfer (I’m pretty sure the first time ever in over a decade) this week certainly paid off. Less so the week before, and good enough the week before that.

                            Dare I burn yet another transfer?

                            I admit to having thoughts on taking Sterling out but I’m not at all sure about it.
                            My rationale. Sterling is a fantastic option, Yes there are caveat’s on his returns/blanks/benching but I still feel he (could)

                            Morning,

                            Not that keen on dropping sterling, but I need to find funds to try and get Son and Vardy in the up coming weeks.

                            Hence I have 2 FT so this week considering Sterling & Greenwood > Son & Barnes
                            Then in by GW9 VVD & Barnes > Soyu & Vardy.

                            Current team :

                            Heaton
                            TAA VVD Montoya Rico Ota
                            Salah Sterling Mount KDB Dendonc
                            Haller Pukki Greenwood

                            Sensible moves or risky getting rid of Sterling?

                              Play Rico and bench Digne perhaps

                                Had considered this.

                                Though burnt after benching Pukki and Cantwell against City (and then McGinn and Lundy this week)

                            I have Digne, Lascelles, Cantwell and Hayden, 0.9m itb and 1 FT

                            1. Could do Digne, Hayden to Soyuncu, Mount
                            2. Could do Lascelles, Cantwell to Chillwell, Mount

                              I like 1 as Cantwell is the best in his bracket. Perhaps Rico instead of Söyüncü or Aurier if you can afford it

                            Haller -> Wilson worth a hit?
                            Other strikers are Pukki and Tammy

                              Probably not no, in a similar boat thinking about Haller to Vardy. Hallers next two are decent fixtures so he could well score meaning the replacement would need a brace to break even.

                                Yeah it's a 50/50 call for me. Tempted to get rid!

                              Both got decent fixtures, Wilson in better form, Bournemouth scoring more.

                                  I'd rather have Wilson myself, the complication is only the -4

                              Leave this week. I am giving haller another chance. They have some decent games ahead

                                Ya lovely fixtures. Will give him another 1r2 games

                              Leave as is. Haller could get on the score sheet against Bournemouth

                                Ya I think I will. Only had him 2 GWs so feel he should get another 1r2 games

                              Haller could do ok next two, but he didn't look very dangerous in last game. If switching to Tammy could well pay off.

                                Sorry meant to say Tammy in my post. I’m thinking one more chance for Haller
