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.

        This.

    3. pjanns

  3. Vimes (No Arsenal Players)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years

      McGinn has looked good and 3 decent fixtures coming up.. I'm on WC and can't decide if I should hold or sell?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Next 3 are nice for mcginn so why not . But by the look of it your team doesn't have any issue so why no saving one transfer ?

    5. Vimes (No Arsenal Players)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah a bit sideways, but have 2fts and 0.6 ITB

      Aguero and Son unless you already have him

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        have Son and KDB

        1. Hansel

    5. Jam0sh

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Oops, did not see you already had Son.

        Do you have Mount?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah - WC draft further down

  5. Eat my goal!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Haller to Tammy -4?

    1. Hansel
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Debating it myself. Will probably hold though

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 22 days ago

        The ownership is causing me concerns

        1. Hansel
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah me too, but as I could get him next week a -4 means he needs at least 1 goal and Haller to stay quite for it to pay off just this GW

    2. Jam0sh
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Wouldn't take that hit myself

    3. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Did it, but I'm a hit addict anyway

      ExWHUemployee suggested Lanzini's knock would last a month. That's too much patience for me to have while watching West Ham's selfish other playing mids deny Haller the ball X_X

      1. Hansel
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Same here, patience gone but question is if it's there for just this week

    4. Vimes (No Arsenal Players)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Is that you Tommy?

    5. Tshelby
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      I would really can't see Haller scoring anytime soon. That being said he probably will get a brace this weekend

    6. what's my name
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      in similar position but Barnes out thinking it ll be worth it as Tammy may explode in one of those games

        • 1 Year

        The belief that Aguero vs Sterling by GW6 determines Aguero vs Sterling long term showed up last season and made me keep Aguero for too long

        And I mean FAR too long. Consistently hoped Aguero would convert more of his many shots into goals while Sterling went on with his superior FPL points for his "fewer" goals and "fluky fantasy assists", and I felt justified every time Sterling was benched, feeling I was doing better... Until the chasm truly dawned upon me and I got Sterling but found myself chasing

          Also... Sterling doesn't have "form"

    Is Marcos Alonso in line for a run of games - he looked threatening v Liverpool.
    Possible Digne replacement and Chelsea got some great fixtures.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Depends on how long Emerson is out for

      1. CAPA
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Yes, news awaited on that perhaps

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Cs has to be the bread and butter of defenders regardless of the price. So not right now for me.

      1. CAPA
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 22 days ago

        So are you for or against keeping Digne

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          I'd ditch digne definitely

          1. CAPA
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 22 days ago

            Chelsea defender or Leicester defender best option iyo for cs over next few gameweeks?

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              10 months, 22 days ago

              See my question below

    3. Ask Yourself
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Prefer Azpi as a long term solution

      1. CAPA
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 22 days ago

        I could swap Digne or Lascelles for a Chelsea defender. Have 0.9m itb.
        Chelsea have great fixtures and top of defence ticker but still concerned about Chelsea cs though.

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          What's yout back 5 and which formation do you play ?

          1. CAPA
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 22 days ago

            TAA, Otamendi, Digne, Lascelles and Lundstrom
            Sometimes play 442 and sometimes 343
            Transfer candidates are Digne and Lascelles

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam

              10 months, 22 days ago

              Lascelles and Lindstram rotate perfectly I think so that's a spot taken imo. Just need to replace digne imo

              1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 6 Years
                10 months, 22 days ago

                Rudiger is back soon I believe and Kante also back so Chelsea could find some stability at the back but even though I like them I feel azpi and Alonso are overpriced right now

                1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                  • 6 Years
                  10 months, 22 days ago

                  So after all that not sure who to replace digne with haha 🙂

                Thanks so much for your input.
                Agreed re Lascelles and Lundstum rotation other than GW7 and GW9 which are tough for them both.
                Swapping Digne could give me a 3rd decent defender fixture for GW7 though and I can play 343
                Back to Chelsea or Leicester defender for Digne - have £0.9m?

                1. CAPA
                  • 1 Year

                  Lundstram*

                  • 6 Years
                  10 months, 22 days ago

                  Choices are not great aren't they ? What about a boring spurs CB ?

                  1. CAPA

                    10 months, 22 days ago

                    Leicester and Chelsea got more longevity to good fixtures and Spurs not been great defensively. MInd you, neither have Chelsea!
                    Spurs still worth considering though.

    • 4 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Is this a well balanced WC or does it lack captaincy options?

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Otamendi Aurier (Soyuncu Lundstram)
    Sterling Son KDB Mount (Hayden)
    Firmino Abraham Pukki

    1. Ask Yourself
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Son and Sterling are your captaincy options looks good to me

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Can I ask what you had before WC? Trying to gauge at what stage to use mine 🙂

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Pope (Woodman)
        TAA Digne Emerson* (Montoya Lundstram)
        Sterling Son Mount James (Dendocker)
        Aguero Abraham Pukki
        1FT 0.2 ITB

        It arguably isn't far enough from the original to justify the WC though

    3. fr3d
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Son, KdB and Abraham are captaincy options every week

    4. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Miguel... Not you too 🙁

      S+S has really gone out of fashion

      It's a well balanced WC and I like the Firmino pick. Tbh, Firmino, Tammy and Pukki are captaincy options based on this season's data so far. Previous seasons, absolutely not. So I like it

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Yep. Really like it. Bobby is a great pick

  10. Warby84
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Pope
    VVD Trent Otamendi Mings /Lundstrum
    Salah Sterling Mount SonC/Cantwell
    Pukki Abraham/Greenwood

    Just done Haller/Digne to Abraham/Otamendi -4

    All Gtg??

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Greenwood doesnt really play does he? Downgrade vvd and upgrade greewood perhaps

      1. Warby84
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Give it a few weeks, 3rd on bench every week so not really bothered...

  11. wulfranian
    • 3 Years

    Rashford->Abraham or Firmino?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Bobby teeth in a heartbeat

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Such a big difference of price though . What are you going to do with extra 2 millions ?

      1. wulfranian
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Actually to get Firmino i must take a hit(Sell Siggy).

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Don't like the hit part ....like the selling siggy one 🙂

          1. wulfranian
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 22 days ago

            And just bench Rashford?

            1. Ajax Hamsterdam
              • 6 Years
              10 months, 22 days ago

              He has arsenal next I'd keep one more week

    3. Hansel

      Abraham

    Wolves have an UEL away game in Turkey 66 hours before they're away to Man City

    Rip in peace

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

      Captain City then 🙂

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Sterling or KDB captain over Salah/Mane home to Leicester?

      1. fr3d
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        100%. Can see Liverpool struggle that game. Salah is a flat track bully

      2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Right now - I'd be picking KDB, but hopefully by then we'll remember that Sterling will be up against gung-ho wingbacks

      3. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Not sure I'd cap anyone against Leicester this season. They're in the big 6. We have to get used to this fact now

        1. Ask Yourself
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          They attack every game tho

          1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
            • 1 Year
            10 months, 22 days ago

            Of course. Liverpool should win the game, but could easily be 1-0 or 2-1. With the way Liverpool attackers have shared goals and stats this season, a haul is unlikely... And even if it does happen, it's hard to predict if Firmino, Mane or Salah would get the 10+ score... Which makes me think of City against the weakened and wounded Wolves instead. After seeing what Lampard did, I've lost my captaincy fear of Wolves and replaced 'em with Leicester

    3. Pukki Party

    Just got Azpi in for Digne - feels great!

  15. Kellz86
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Digne/Haller to Ota/Son for -4? (means I swap Dendoncker to Greenwood as my 3rd bench and go 3-5-2)

  16. Dave Dreamer
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Team A
    Pope
    Söyüncü - Alexander-Arnold - Otamendi (Lundstram - RICO)
    Salah - De Bruyne - MADDISON - Mount (Dendoncker)
    Agüero - Pukki - Abraham

    Team B (with 1.6m ITB)
    Pope
    Söyüncü - Alexander-Arnold - Otamendi - Aurier (Lundstram)
    Salah - De Bruyne - Mount (CANTWELL - Dendoncker)
    Agüero - Pukki - Abraham

    Is Maddison worth losing flexibility and a better bench?

    1. Dave Dreamer
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Basically
      A = Maddison and Rico
      B = Aurier and Cantwell + 1.6m itb

    2. KDB4PREZ
      10 months, 22 days ago

      A is my team without WC so that’s awesome to c. I feel like he’s worth it tbh he’s only getting better

      1. Dave Dreamer
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Ditching Cantwell would hurt

  17. ando22

    1. jimmy.floyd

      No

  18. Tinmen

    Folks, should I WC or if not how can I use my ft?
    O.2itb I really want Son and Tammy but don’t know how to fit them in
    Possibly vvd and Martial to Söyüncü and Son(C)

    Heaton
    Trent Virgil Rico Digne
    Sterling KDB Martial Mount
    Aguero Pukki
    Button Launstrum Dend Greenwood

    1. Reckoner.
      • 8 Years

      Aguero & Martial > Abraham & Son

    Would like some views on this.
    A) Mane (if fit) & Otamendi
    B) Salah & Diop?

    would you get Tammy over Barnes for a hit Y or N?
    obvs he’ll come good longer term and don’t want to miss out on his current price
    appreciate thoughts

  21. Dribbles

    • 2 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Pressed the WC button mates.

    Feedback please?

    Pope
    TAA, Otamendi, Tomori
    Son, Mount, Sterling, KDB
    Abraham, Pukki, Firmino

    Button, Lundstram, Rico, Cantwell

    Is it too dangerous not owning Salah / Mane for now?

    Seems a strong draft?

    Cheers all!

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Very good team all round. Lack of captaincy options would concern me a bit though

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        Appreciate the feedback mate.

        I think I would be swapping between Sterling, KDB and potentially Abraham if Chelsea starts their great run in good form

    2. Tshelby
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Egyptianking without the realy Egyptain king? This could end in tears.

      Don't think you really need to have Salah/Mane but I wouldn't go without one of them maybe Firmino can cover them.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 22 days ago

        True, ahah.

        The thing is that I think that given their next 4-6 fixtures, neither Salah or Mane would be my main (C) choice (maybe only for next GW in fact).

        Firmino is showing very good consistency (more points than Mane alteady). 1.9M saved over Mane, and 3M saved over Salah, imo, is huge

        1. Tshelby
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 22 days ago

          Yeah the 3M comes really handy! Would maybe also do it on my wc. Think I might just make Salah perm cap for me

  23. M.I.A.
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Thoughts on the below transfers on a WC:

    VVD > Robertson
    Zinchenko > Rico
    Salah > KDB
    D Silva > Son
    Auba > Firmino
    Greenwood > Wood

    Leaves me with the below and 1.7m ITB:

    Button/Pope
    Robertson/Digne/Kelly/Rico/Lundstram
    KDB/Son/Sterling/Mount/Dendoncker
    Firmino/Wood/Pukki

  24. Oooo Matron
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    Any thoughts what to do here? Possibly Digne to Diop which leaves room to upgrade Barnes later on.

    Pope
    TAA Digne Otamendi
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount
    Pukki Barnes Abraham

    Subs: Cantwell, Rico, Lundstrom

  25. FOO FIGHTER

    Most WC's are looking the same again.

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      It's the same after every GW (admittedly I'm guilty)

  26. HarryB29
    • 2 Years
    10 months, 22 days ago

    2FT takes me to this. Look good?

    Pope
    TAA Otamendi Mings
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Abraham Barnes Pukki

    Button Cantwell Lundstram Rico

  27. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Guys 2ft 0.5 itb

    A) Haller and Barnes to Abraham and pukki
    B) Haller to Abraham save one ft
    C) Haller and digne to vardy and aurier/timori
    D) Haller barnes digne to vardy Abraham rico/guilbert.

    Please. Suggest for option. A I need to done before tonight as Tammy and pukki may go up as well as Barnes may go dwn.But league cup injury scare is there.Please suggest guys

      Depends on your strat, but I'd be tempted to take more value out of defence and invest higher up

    3. lmgroves1
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah fair point, thinking maybe Zinchenko our for Tomori and Barnes for Abraham instead now
