Scout Notes

No joy for Yarmolenko’s new FPL owners as Kelly continues to deliver

West Ham United 1-2 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Sebastien Haller (£7.4m) | Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m), Jordan Ayew (£5.1m)
  • Assists: Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) | Cheikhou Kouyate (£4.9m), Martin Kelly (£4.1m)
  • Bonus: Ayew x3, Kelly x2, van Aanholt x1

Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) was the third-most-bought Fantasy Premier League asset of Gameweek 8, with just under 310,000 FPL bosses transferring in the Ukraine international after his run of three goals in four matches.

Yarmolenko’s ownership has increased by over 2000% in the last two Gameweeks but, as is sometimes the way with these bandwagons, the West Ham midfielder duly delivered a ‘one-pointer’ just as his popularity had ballooned.

The thrashing at Tottenham Hotspur apart, Crystal Palace have been one of the more reliable defences this season and in truth, they did a decent job of suffocating West Ham: of the ten home teams in Gameweek 8, only Watford had fewer shots than the Hammers.

Yarmolenko himself was contained well by Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) but there were still bright moments as he occupied the space between left-back and centre-half and, on another day, he would have left this game with an assist to his name.

West Ham’s only big chance of the match came from Yarmolenko’s cross from the right flank, with Sebastien Haller (£7.4m) firing straight at Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) from six yards to deny the Ukrainian’s owners an attacking return.

Haller was to later register his fourth goal of the season, converting a Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) pull-back to briefly give the hosts an advantage.

The West Ham striker has a Harry Kane-like (£10.9m) tendency to drop deep to aid his side’s build-up play but, unlike the Spurs forward, compensates for it by getting into some dangerous positions in the opposition area.

The shot that Guaita kept out was his eighth from inside the six-yard box this season: no FPL asset has had more. Kane, by contrast, has registered one such attempt.

The man who teed up Haller for his goal was someone we highlighted in the Big Numbers piece last week, with Fredericks top among FPL defenders for penalty box touches this season.

The West Ham right-back, bombing on in advance of Yarmolenko after collecting the winger’s pass, did well to spot Haller amid a crowded area and was a creative outlet all evening, also crossing for Felipe Anderson (£6.9m) to head wide earlier in the match.

The Hammers have four of the seven worst teams for shots on target to come between now and the November international break, so there ought to be a clean sheet or two for Fredericks and co before their fixtures toughen from Gameweek 13 onwards.

Roberto (£4.4m), deputising for the injured Lukasz Fabianski (£5.1m), made his full Premier League debut and had a fairly quiet night, palming away one James McCarthy (£4.4m) shot from distance and being left no chance for either of Palace’s goals.

Manuel Pellegrini lamented the defeat and Declan Rice‘s (£4.9m) handball for Palace’s equalising penalty, also highlighting how little the visitors had otherwise created:

It’s a disappointing result because we were ahead in the score and we had other clear chances to decide the game and two set-pieces allowed Crystal Palace, who didn’t have any other shots from inside our box, to win the game with a penalty and a free-kick.

I think we had three clear chances to score in the first half and also had a couple in the second, but you must score. You cannot just create chances; you must score.

We didn’t and we conceded an unnecessary penalty – when Declan goes to the ball, he must keep his hand back and his arm down. It was an instant reaction and the ball hit his hand – and then they scored after the VAR and we lost.

The Eagles normally turn to the trusty Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m) when they are awarded a penalty but with their captain suspended, and with the likes of Christian Benteke (£5.7m) and Andros Townsend (£5.7m) among the substitutes (both of these players had taken a spot-kick for Palace last season), it was van Aanholt who stepped up to convert from 12 yards.

Speaking after the game, the Dutch left-back said:

Luka was suspended today and before the game, the gaffer in the meeting said: ‘Who wants to take a penalty?’

He looked at me and said: ‘Will you take it?’ I said: ‘Yeah. I’m confident enough to take one,’ and I took one and it hit the back of the net.

With Manchester City, Arsenal, Leicester City, Chelsea and Liverpool to come in the next five Gameweeks, interest in Palace assets will be minimal despite their excellent form.

Any Palace players that FPL managers do own, be it Martin Kelly (£4.1m) or Jordan Ayew (£5.1m), would seem likely to be emergency substitutes at best during this period but they are names to monitor ahead of Gameweek 14, when the Eagles enjoy a superb run of eight games without facing a ‘big six’ side.

Roy Hodgson’s side are certainly offering us decent value.

Kelly, van Aanholt and Joel Ward (£4.6m) are among the top six FPL defenders for points per million spent, with Ayew fourth among forwards for that statistic.

While Palace were deprived of what would have been their fourth clean sheet of the campaign (no Premier League club has more than their three), Kelly and Ayew combined for the Eagles’ winning goal – which was only confirmed after VAR intervention – and banked a combined five bonus points to keep their manifold owners happy.

Kelly is a budget defender whose race appeared to be run after the September international break.

Kelly’s injury and Mamadou Sakho‘s (£5.0m) return to fitness saw the former drop out of the side in Gameweeks 5 and 6 but a muscle strain picked up by Sakho has given the £4.1m-rated asset a reprieve in Hodgson’s starting XI.

Sakho is expected to return after the October international break but would Hodgson rush him back into the line-up given what happened at Spurs?

In the six games that Kelly has been in the starting XI, Palace have kept three clean sheets and conceded only three goals.

The fit-again James Tomkins (£5.0m), of course, is also eagerly awaiting his first league minutes of the campaign.

Ayew, meanwhile, has scored three goals in his last six starts and on each occasion he has banked maximum bonus.

It should be said that Fantasy managers shouldn’t expect a deluge of goals from Hodgson’s side: only Newcastle have created fewer big chances than the Eagles this season.

Opportunities were thin on the ground at the London Stadium, too, although Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.5m) perhaps could have done better when picked out by Wilfried Zaha (£6.7m) on 35 minutes, allowing Fredericks to clear his scuffed shot off the line.

Reflecting on the game, Hodgson said:

We subdued them through the bulk of the game really. I think the chances were fairly even on both sides. Certainly we had a lot of possession, as did they for periods of time.

It’s a victory I think the players not only deserve but they certainly worked unbelievably hard for it and got it against a good West Ham team. We didn’t win because West Ham were bad. We were lucky enough to get the decisions we got but good enough to give the quality of performance we gave.

Namechecking a few individuals, Hodgson added:

Joel Ward, Martin Kelly, Patrick van Aanholt, James McArthur, [James] McCarthy, Cheikhou [Kouyate], basically I think they’re all giving the club every single ounce of what they can give.

I think they’re working very, very hard to become a good team and to work together as a very good team. To be honest, I think that it’s too easy to say: ‘you’ve seen nothing yet.’

            Sterling and KDB?

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 21 days ago

              KDB and another TBD

              1. Ian Davis
                • 10 Years
                7 months, 21 days ago

                I’ve currently only got KDB, considering Aguero instead of Aubameyang though.

                1. Magic Zico
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  7 months, 21 days ago

                  Not bad, may do the same ... 1.2M more expensive is the thinkering

                  1. Ian Davis
                    • 10 Years
                    7 months, 21 days ago

                    That’s the issue + not quite a guaranteed to start all games

    4. Grievez
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Possible wc has 1, team has 3. The reason I don't want to wildcard

    5. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I’m guessing 2; no way to know for certain though.

    6. Pro Pundit PUMPKINHEAD - ca…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      KDB Kun Sterling in my current draft. Them fixtures.....

  2. Super Jack Grealish
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    What to do with this mess then?

    Heaton, Button
    VVD, Zinc, Tamori, Lundy, Kelly
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount, James
    Haller, Pukki, Greenwood

    2FT 1.7 ITB

    1. sovietrockettes
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      WC still intact?

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      James and Greenwood out you can't have Championship players

    3. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      You'd have to seriously consider WCíng that.
      Issues are Zinchenko, James, Greenwood and all 3 forwards I'd say. And I'd want TAA instead of VVD and Pope instead of Heaton

    4. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      That's a serious wildcard .

    5. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Take a hit 3 transfer can sort this..

    6. Bragazeti
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Heaton pulled out of the England squad. You can monitor but its probably the typical international injury

    7. BuYaKasha
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      James > Maddison
      Haller > Abraham
      Pukki > Vardy

  3. simong1
    • 1 Year

    How does this WC team look?

    Pope, Button
    TAA, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico, Kelly
    Mane, KDB, Madison, Mount, CHO
    Auba, Vardy, Abraham

    1. simong1
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Sorry, should read Wilson for Vardy

    2. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years

      Like most others.

    3. CRO KLOPP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. DortmundisLove
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        This. Somebody has to turn into into a 4.5/Cantwell and then upgrade someone.

  4. Vardster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Maddison or Wilson?

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Harry or Callum?

      1. Vardster
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Callum

  5. TAT
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Front three tinkering:
    1. Vardy/Aubameyang/Abraham
    2. C. Wilson/ Vardy (or Aubameyang)/Abraham – leaving a bit more itb.

    Which option would you prefer?

    1. Boberella
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I really like 2: Wilson/Vardy/Abraham.
      And the extra cash is gold to upgrade MID

    4. DortmundisLove
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I just can’t understand Vardy over Wilson personally.

      1. King Holebas
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Would you still take Wilson over Vardy if it means a double up with King?

        1. DortmundisLove
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          Nope but I just wouldn’t have King

    Anyone else thinking this may be the time to get Jimenez in? Gut feeling he's due, and can trade for Pukki.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  11. DA Minnion
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Salah and Mane double up or Sterling and De Bruyne double.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Mount and CHO double

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        could do this plus either of the ones they asked about.

    2. Scott Talent
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Sterling , KDB , Mane

      1. Dynamic Duos

      Sterling KDB

    4. F4L

      Mane KDB and Auba

      Odd choice. Why not Salah and KDB?

      1. Dthinger

            Not much to see, I'm still undecided on a few things, I'll show you when it's closer to being done though. I've been uncharastically busy the last few days so haven't been able to tinker much.

    Took a -4 to piece together this team. Having dreadful luck with captaincy so far:

    Pope
    Otamendi // TAA // Mings
    Maddison // KDB // Mane // Mount
    Aubameyang // Wilson (c) // Abraham

    4.0 // Yarmolenko // Rico // Lundstram

    Sterling, Pukki > Maddison, Auba for free?

  15. Vardster

    7 months, 21 days ago

    Maddison or C.Wilson?

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Wilson I'd say

    2. EMBOLOFAN

    What should I sort here? Can it be done with 2FT? Or should I Wildcard?

    Pope
    Robertson VVD Rico Digne
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Pukki Abraham

    Button Lundstram Greenwood Dendoncker

    2 FT, 0.3 ITB

    Thanks

    1. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I wouldnt WC. Maybe Pukki, Digne > Wilson/Vardy, Soyuncu/Tomori.

    2. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      You can do it in two transfers. Lots of options involving downgrading a defender and upgrading a forward

  17. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Any suggestions here? Thinking at least Pukki > Wilson.

    2FTs 1.3 ITB

    Pope
    TAA/Ota/Soy/Tomori
    Salah/Sterling/KDB/Mount
    Pukki/Tammy

    Bench: Button, Lundstram,Cantwell, Greenwood

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      identical starting 11 to me

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 20 days ago

        That means its great I reckon 😉

  18. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Gazzaniga could be useful in a bench--boost kind of situation.

  19. Thunder Warrior
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Kun and Pepe to Wilson and Mane for a hit?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I just got Pepe last week and you're selling... I like Arsenals fixtures and Pepe has some skills, just yet to be seen in the PL.

    2. Magic Zico

      Keep both?

    3. EMBOLOFAN

      no

  20. Pigeon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 21 days ago

    Which 5 defenders does everyone have who's on wildcard? Atm mine is:
    TAA - Pereira - Lundstram - Willems - Rico

    1. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      With City’s next 3 fixtures Id def get one in. But one bad game have put people off.

      1. Pigeon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        No, as a unit City look terrible in defence bar Watford, not going near them yet

        1. Maddamotha
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 21 days ago

          They will get some CS next 3 matches. And Ota has good attacking stats, but suit yourself 😉

          1. Pigeon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 21 days ago

            He's also a terrible footballer, I know what I'm in for

            1. Maddamotha
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 21 days ago

              Lol yeah really terrible. And why Willems? Plays for Newcastle last I checked.

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      TAA Soy Lund Rico Prodl or TAA Robbo Soy Lund Rico

    3. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Same as you but Fredericks over Willems.

    4. I hate Moreno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      TAA, Boly, Soyuncu, Lundstram, Rico

  21. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Mane or Auba?

  22. Stejson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    So the second international break is here. Many wheels are falling of the early season bandwagons so for the patient ones, now may be a good time for a wildcard.
    I've had a think and played mine and, just like before the season started, appear to be ending up with a very similar team to everyone else who is struggling to make up ground in their leagues.
    Other than the fixture shifts for Leicester and the rise of Mount/ Abraham, are there really many more options than those that were considered good from the seasons start?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      man utd xgc being overlooked. people selling pukki could be making a mistake. wolves might get going now

    2. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Perfect time to WC. Mount/Abraham and Maddison/Vardy are the key duos moving forward.

      1. Reiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Along with Auba, of course.

  23. Littlefish92
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Not sure how to improve this team ? 1 FT at the moment could hold till it's back on
    Depending on Salah and kdb of course

    Pope
    Tomori - Ota - Rico
    Salah-Kdb-mane-cantwell
    Tammy-kun-Pukki

      Yea hold I think. Any money in the bank?

  24. FortunesAlwaysHiding

    Is Jonny nailed on for Wolves guys? Thank you.

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Not quite. Europa League means he'll get the occasional rest I reckon

  25. FortunesAlwaysHiding
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Is it safe to assume that Emerson will slot back into Chelsea's back line after the IB?

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Reckon so, Alonso hasn't really done enough to keep him out

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      think they’ll be more careful with his reintroduction this time

  26. OBAMA
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    would you rather go without

    A) Mane

    B) Sterling

    (already have KDB)

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Tough one. Probably sterling as you have KDB.

    2. EMBOLOFAN

      a

  27. Alli

    A) Digne, Pukki > Rico, Vardy
    B) Digne, Pukki > Söyüncü/Tomori, C.Wilson

    2 FT - 0.2 ITB

    Ryan - Heaton
    VVD - Otamendi - Diop - Digne - Dunk
    Salah - Sterling - KDB - Cantwell - Mount
    Pukki - Tammy - Greenwood

    1. EMBOLOFAN

      b easily

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Keep Pukki

    3. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 21 days ago

      B. But I'd be more concerned with upgrading greenwood

      1. Alli
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Not a lot of options there

  28. OBAMA

    Would you rather go without

    A) Kun
