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.

          Rashford to Firmino. You have Mount. I have TAA, Salah and Firmino triple up and it balances my team perfectly.

        Am I missing something? Why are people bringing in Aurier? He isn't nailed is he? And Spurs are among the poorest defences in league at moment. Its it just run of fixtures and hope that he'll get some attacking points?

        1. De Gea Van Dijk. 10
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 23 days ago

          Would take that Wolves right back myself.

        2. Trophé Mourinho
            9 months, 23 days ago

            Seems more nailed than kwp but a kwp show wouldn’t surprise me much.
            They just seeing the assist, the disallowed goal and in desperate need/hope of a decent cheap defender or any decent defender for that matter. I may well have punted on him but didn’t fit my structure.
            He could be the hero all our defences need, but he probably won’t be. 😀

            1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              9 months, 23 days ago

              I don't understand how he could be. Pick a cheaper defender from a better defence to be your saviour surely.

              I'm honestly interested cause seeing him in lots of teams but don't understand why. Similar to picking an Arsenal defender.

          • Witty Pun: Not good at this…
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 23 days ago

            Don't know. If it's not on wildcard you're essentially wasting 2 FT on him.

            1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              9 months, 23 days ago

              I'm on WC so i'm the market, but don't see attraction. Willing to be swayed, but need to hear a good reason.

              1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
                • 3 Years
                9 months, 23 days ago

                Fwiw, my WC defence right now would be something like
                TAA Ricardo Otamendi Montoya Lundage

                1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  9 months, 23 days ago

                  I'd like Ricardo but probably going Soy due to price.

                  Mine is TAA, Otamendi, Soyuncu, Lundstrom, Tomori/Rico

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                      9 months, 23 days ago

                      Chelsea have a far worse defence than Spurs yet you going with Tomori?

            2. avfc82
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              9 months, 23 days ago

              Spurs are struggling on the road big time, which stretches back to mid Feb. At home, not so bad, only City have a lower xGA and with Southampton and Watford up next, I can see one or two clean sheets. The rotation thing could be an issue, but if you have a strong enough bench, I think 4.9 could be worth it.

              1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                9 months, 23 days ago

                Thanks. Hate picking any player, but especially defenders for short term fixtures. They inevitably stay in team much longer than anticipated.

            3. FOO FIGHTER
                9 months, 23 days ago

                Attacking returns from a 5.0m. That has to be the reason why? He looks better than Digne.

                Clean sheets are few and far between from any defence at the moment.

              • Freddiebell
                • 3 Years
                9 months, 22 days ago

                Aurier is more as long as he keeps playing the way he is.

              Got a feeling there are not a lot of teams left with De Bruyne, Sterling and Salah in them. Goes to show how the template changes every week.

                      Get rid of Digne. Has played 6 weaker teams and hasn't come up with goods and isn't worth his value. Everton are awful

                      Maybe A depends on the mid game week and the popularity of sterling

                      Ota, Soyuncu, Tomori, even maybe Rico has 3 decent fixtures in next 4

                      WHU have a decent run of fixtures up until GW13. Looking at Diop or Ogbonna myself in my WC-team.

                    Who’s everyone capping this week?

                    Salah or Kun for me atm.

                    Have Stirling too.

                      Sterling will haul this time.

                      Salah

                      Zaha(C) Mount(vc)

                        9 months, 23 days ago

                        also considering Son as a more controversial punt

                        1. Tshelby
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                          9 months, 23 days ago

                          Would go for Son if I had him.

                          Did zaha show any form against Wolverhampton?

                            9 months, 23 days ago

                            'Zaha had more touches in the opposition area than any other play on show at Selhurst Park and he now sits third among FPL midfielders for that statistic in 2019/20'

                            from the article but their lack of a finisher is always a worry with Palace...then again it is Norwich!

                      Sterling might be the one to cap for me. Considering Auba too tbh.

                      Best option here with 2fts and 0.4m

                      Heaton — Pope
                      Taa • Zincheko • Vvd— Rico Digne
                      Sterling • Kdb • Cantwell • James — Docker
                      King • Kane (c) • Pukki

                      A: James >> Mount and carry FT
                      B: King >> Tammy and downgrade one of vvd/digne/zincheko to raise 0.7m
                      C: James + Kane (c) >> Son (c) + Tammy....keep King (WHU) this gw and get rid next gw

                        Digne will score 0 or 1 pt again this week. At 6.2 he's a joke and Everton are awful.

                      Digne to Otamendi feels worth it for a hit to me. Thoughts?

                      Have other fires to put out in my team in the coming weeks so I anyways wont get a chance to do it for free.
                      5.5m for a defender with goal threat playing for the title contenders is just too good to ignore.
                      eve, WOL, cry, AVL, SOU next 5 games the hit could massively pay off and Ota could be 6m by the end of that run.
                      Also I dont see many reasons to keep Digne.

                        How long Laporte will out? Also considering it for a hit.

                      The question is if to keep the city trio like in A or sell one of Kun/Sterling

                      Thinking of going Salahless till 13,am I crazy?

                          Damn I thought I need to raise funds for the other 2! Turns out I have enough without the hit cheers, altho I'm not sure if Digne is a keeper anymore.

                      Woodman Guilbert Lundstram Nakamba

                      0.0m // 1 FT

                      Would you play Guilbert over Cantwell? Norwich dont seem to do well away.

                        That's a nice team, but it's missing what is imo the only essential player in the game.

                          KdB? Yeah, if Sterling played but blank the other day, wouldve done Sterling->KdB and Guilbert->Ota, but ah well. think I'll hold on to Raz this week. I'll swallow them kdb price rises for now.

                          I’m on a currently and considering B for WC (likely a few weeks time) so it all depends on form. Can’t help but tinker!

                        I'm on Salah and Abraham, but there is something very enticing about the latter.

                        No, Salah and Abraham.

                      Every week since the start of the season I have wanted to bring Lundstram in, but have had some more important transfers to do... Now I missed his latest price rise so I'm starting to question isn't it better to buy some 4.5 defender instead of him for 4.4?

                      My team currently, planning to WC during next international break, 1 FT and 0.4 ITB:

                      Ryan - Button
                      TAA - VVD - Otamendi - Digne - Rico
                      Salah - Sterling - KDB - Cantwell - Hayden
                      Pukki - Haller - Greenwood

                      What would you do here?

                      A) Digne -> Diop, Hayden -> Mount (-4)
                      B) Digne -> Soyuncu and save money
                      C) Digne -> Tomori, Hayden -> Mount (-4)
                      D) Digne -> Lundstram and save money
                      E) Save transfer

                        I did Digne to Aurier

                      How has Son only risen 0.1 after like quadrupling his ownership post ban

                        Martial now has fewer owners than when the season started but is still 0.1 up on his original price.

                            He started to cheap, they think he is under-priced so won’t allow drops -_-

                          because it's rigged to suit the needs of FPL towers!

                              control the game such as not letting Martial drop too much as he was under-priced at the start of the game

                          B) no hit, play Cantwell 3-5-2

                            A is the move. None playing player to a player that's on firs is a no brainer.

                          Time to WC? £0.8m itb. Rank 343k overall.

                          Current team:
                          Pope
                          Digne | TAA | Zinchenko | Lunds
                          Cantwell | Sterling | Salah | KDB
                          Tammy | Pukki

                          Heaton | Greenwood | James | Kelly

                          Proposed team:
                          Pope (Heaton)
                          Aurier | Soyuncu | TAA | Otamendi | Lunds
                          Salah | Mount | KDB | H Wilson | ?
                          Auba | Pukki | Abraham

                          Seems like it's time to ditch Digne, Sterling and Zinc. Or perhaps I'm being too trigger happy...

                              You first team is good, is that James from Man U on ur bench? Play him.
                              Digne and zinch ur issues. At least digne will start u know so he isn’t urgent other than the fact he won’t get nothing vs city most likely. Would just do zinchenko to someone, ota the obvious move and play James instead of digne.

                                Yep, James (Man U).

                                Perhaps a -4 for Zinc > Ota, Digne > Aurier?

                                Then think about Sterling move next GW. Keen to catch the Auba run of games.

                                    Just so the ota move and play James, he could be a great option this week.
                                    Oh I see, maybe u don’t want to play lunds vs pool and that’s why ur thinking about the digne move as well.
                                    You could just play Lunds and pray for an assist or goal, it could happen he got an assist last game and he is at home.

                                        Guess if ur praying for assist or goal then u could play digne anyway.

                                  Pity Djenepo is injured. 5.4m, when he is fit again, I might bring him in for Cantwell depending on how much the Norwich man has risen in price by then.
