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.’

            It’s funny how Arsenal are perceived to be so bad in defence but they are actually 5th for fewest goals conceded in 2019. Everton are 3rd on 29.

              Holding may be the guy to have going forward at 4.5m.
              Just needs to get a start in the league 1st though.

        Thanks - just concerned about whether Son and Aurier play... Why on earth did I get Spurs assets on wc a few weeks back?

          You've got the bench to cover. Of they're dropped you'll have 2 frees the week after to sort it out. I doubt they'll be benched though.

        2. Bobby Digital

          I'm banking on Aurier to start fwiw.

          hard to tell as price changes tend to slow a little in international breaks by the looks of it.

    Can afford to take a chance or two as still have the WC. Which of these combos look better.
    Auba v Salah really.
    1. Salah + Pukki -> Maddison + Aubameyang (1.4m).
    2. VVD + Smith -> Pereira + Soyuncu/ Tomori (0.2m/0.1m).
    3. Other- WC etc.

      Option D)

      3-4-3, Robertson Soyuncu Tomori Rico Lundstram, and Maddison.
      Then I may or may not have enough money to do Robertson to TAA.

  9. Isaac.m94
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    A) Otamendi and Jiminez
    B) 5m def & Wilson

    1. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I would've thought for another option

    2. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Boly and Wilson.

  10. Alonso The Great Midfielder

    adama traore anyone? seem like to cement his place now right?

    1. Isaac.m94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Is he your 5th or 4th mid?

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        4th midfielder will switch 343 or 433 occasionally

        1. Kay317
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 months, 22 days ago

          I'd say go for it, especially if it's for Dendonkey.

    2. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Problem with him is that he may start right wing. In Doherty's place.

      1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        emm yeah just need some little differential here thought adama might worth a try

  11. Max City

    Do you guys think this team worth a WC?

    Heaton Pope

    3.1m itb 1FT

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Probably not, just do Mahrez or Dilva to KDB when we know for sure he's back for next game

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      Nope

    3. Bring back Rafa
        4 months, 22 days ago

        I'd probably WC there. I'd add Heaton (or Pope if you'd prefer) out as well as don't need 2 GK.

        If not WC, top priority would be KDB & Lundstram in for Silva & Coleman

    4. MarvelouSuccess
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 22 days ago

      I want KDB back soon and I want TAA and Wilson. Not sure how to get them as I have 1 FT. KDB would likely be a hit unless I ship Sterling out. Who should I bring in first?

                Returns have been extremely fortuitous to begin with, bou are just so hot and cold, i’ve just had bad experiences of him that’s all, i’f never touch him again but if you fancy him then go for it 🙂

                  Agree his returns have involved more than a bit of luck and with the observation re BOU generally.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 months, 22 days ago

              Wilson as playing Norwich and Watford next 2 games. If you can't afford mount aswell maybe look at CHO. Good differential aswell as being cheaper.

            I think it's his spot after the internationals. He's been brilliant in the two games he's played in the cups and played a full 90 the other night. He will rack up the assists with those front 3.

              maybe but risky, and also conceed a lot, like city though i suppose lol

                Yes it is a risk but I have a good feeling about him. Just need to make sure bench is ok in the event he doesn't play right after the IB

      Wilson or Abraham on a WC if you already have Mount?

      1. Kay317

        Why not both if on WC?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 22 days ago

          I want Vardy as well and having all three means I have to downgrade one of Mane or Sterling.

      3. Bring back Rafa
          4 months, 22 days ago

          Still Abraham

        • Kung Fu Football

          Yes both!!

      4. MarvelouSuccess
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 22 days ago

        In what order would you prioritise getting in each player?

        1. KDB
        2. TAA
        3. C.Wilson

        1. Bring back Rafa
            4 months, 22 days ago

            1.TAA (the gap between the best and 2nd best is the greatest in defence IMO and TAA is the best)
            2.KDB (could end up number 1 player if stays fit)
            3.Wilson (decent but by no means essential)

            1. MarvelouSuccess
              • 7 Years
              4 months, 22 days ago

              Only way I could get TAA and KDB in is by getting rid of Lowton and Sterling for a hit.

          • Kung Fu Football
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 22 days ago

            With a fully fit KDB..1,2,3.

          • Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 months, 22 days ago

            Wilson has two great fixtures coming up so if you're set on getting him in I'd do it now.
            Then KDB. Then TAA when Liverpool's fixtures swing.

          What to do over IB? 2FT and 0.5 ITB

          Pope (button)
          TAA Otamendi Soy (lowton Lund)
          Sterling KDB Son Mount McGinn
          Haller Abraham (Pukki)

          Thinking just Haller > C Wilson and roll extra free TF. Any other thoughts?

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Yea I'd go Haller to Wilson.

          Would you do this?

          Robertson to Rico (NOR) allowing me to do Dendoncker to Maddison next week.

          VVD and Otamendi remain in the team, and can become TAA & sub 5.0 defender.

          No hits

          Which of these moves look better?
          1. Salah + Pukki -> Maddison + Aubameyang (1.4m).
          2. VVD + Smith -> Pereira + Soyuncu/ Tomori (0.2m/0.1m).
          3. Other- WC etc.

          Pope.

            As of today, B. Though McGinn has some tough fixtures? Maybe Yarmolenko instead?

          With Lloris set to miss the rest of 2019 (might return late december), could this be a smart move: Pukki + Pope -> Jimenez + Gazzaniga -4? Or would you do something else? Saving is not a bad option either.

          Current team:

          Pope
          TAA Soy Tomori
          Sterling KDB Son Mount
          Aguero Abraham Pukki
          __

            I would save don’t think it improves your team. I f I had to get rid of Pukki I would invest in midfield.

            Pukki perhaps, but you never know how he'll fare. Not too urgent, think you can hold one more week at least.

          For all the (minority) Angus Gunn owners (as a Gunn owner myself),

          have a feeling he'll drop to the bench next GW. His performances have been not up to the standard for the majority of the season. Fans are already asking for Gunn to be dropped and McCarthy to be put back into the XI.

          Although Gunn is undoubtedly the better ball-player and sweeper keeper, McCarthy has always been agreed by many fans as the far better shot-stopper. He's young and he'll learn, but the worrying thing is that he keeps making the same mistakes over and over again. He's not learning from them.

          The mistake against Chelsea for the first goal was an indicator of how low his confidence is. I've got no issue with rushing forward to meet a striker and the risk of a deft chip, but a goalie has to COMMIT to it. Gunn looked lost and hesitant there, between two minds of staying back and charging forwards, he did neither confidently and bottled it.

          In my mind, Ralph needs to make the brave and obvious choice of playing McCarthy the next match.We cant put a young promising goalie like Gunn in the XI and making the blunders he's making, destroying his self-confidence even more.

          As a Gunn set-and-forget manager, think I'm going to have to plan a transfer out for him soon. Thinking maybe Pope. How long is Heaton out for? Steer a decent pick?
