Unexpected stalemate at the Vitality frustrates owners of Wilson and Pukki

Bournemouth 0-0 Norwich City

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Steve Cook (£5.0m) x3, Nathan Ake (£4.9m), Diego Rico (£4.2m) x2

A goalless draw played out by two of the Premier League’s most obliging defences meant a frustrating afternoon for many a Fantasy manager.

The blank was especially hard to take for those who owned Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki (£7.0m and 35.9%) or the 14.3%-backed Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson (£8.0m) in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

Goals, after all, had seemed certain at the Vitality Stadium.

Neither side had managed a clean sheet all season and the Canaries were bottom of the league for goals conceded (21).

What transpired was a stale affair devoid of thrills, spills or any attacking cohesion.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe opted to bench Josh King (£6.3m) and hand Ryan Fraser (£7.1m) a first start since Gameweek 4 – a bitter blow for more than 100,000 managers who had bought the Norway international in anticipation of a big haul.

Howe explained his starting XI ahead of kick-off:

Joshua King came back from internationals a bit fatigued, so we’re protecting him. Jefferson Lerma picked up an injury with Colombia but it’s great to have Lewis Cook, Ryan Fraser and Adam Smith back in the team.

Wilson was similarly in-demand, with his ownership up by a net figure of 168,430 as he prepared to face Daniel Farke’s forlorn backline.

But the England striker managed just two shots – and none on target – in 90 barren minutes during which his highlight was setting up strike partner Dominic Solanke (£5.4m) for the game’s one and only big chance.

That opportunity was spurned; one of two (count them) saves that returning keeper Tim Krul (£4.5m) was obliged to make.

His Bournemouth counterpart, Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m), was called into action just the once, although it did at least involve a superb stop to deny Pukki’s well-struck shot from the edge of the area.

The decline of the Finnish finisher is gathering pace rather more dramatically than anything that happened on the pitch at Bournemouth.

More than half a million managers had got rid going into Gameweek 9 and he’s currently the most-sold player ahead of Sunday’s visit by Manchester United.

That has prompted two price drops in quick succession and only an end to his four-match goal drought seems likely to stop the inevitable slide back towards his original £6.5m valuation.

Norwich’s other popular asset, the 23.1%-owned Todd Cantwell (£4.9m), recovered from a knock to start on Saturday.

But he, too, blanked for the fourth successive game and is shipping owners and value as well.

Not only that but positional rival Onel Hernandez (£5.3m) returned from a lengthy lay-off at the Vitality, coming on as a late substitute.

For all their attacking abandon, Norwich have now managed to score just once in five away attempts this season, so Bournemouth’s first shut-out of the campaign was perhaps not such a surprise after all.

The two Cherries defenders with double-digit ownership levels, Nathan Ake (£4.9m) and Diego Rico (£4.2m), also brought in bonus points for their efforts, while the maximum award was enjoyed by the 0.2% of managers with Steve Cook (£5.0m) in their teams.

Unsurprisingly, Howe was happy to praise his defence post-match.

For me, the past two games defensively have been a big improvement. We were relatively okay from the defensive side at Arsenal (a 1-0 loss) and today we were strong again.

Adam Smith (£4.3m) returned to the backline following a lengthy lay-off with a hamstring problem, but Rico’s attacking threat – he has two assists to his name – and cut-price cost mark him out as the best of a still-unreliable bunch heading into an okayish run of fixtures (wat | MUN | new | WOL) before a trickier set kicks in through to Christmas.

As for Norwich, the return of Alexander Tettey (£4.5m) as a midfield shield for that porous defence worked wonders. His inclusion, following two matches out with injury, meant the bench for previous ever-present Marco Stiepermann (£5.3m), who has arguably been the least-effective of Norwich’s hitherto ever-present front four while doing little to shore up things defensively.

Tettey’s inclusion led to a slight change in formation with perhaps more emphasis on defence than before, with the Canaries resembling a 4-1-4-1.

But only the bravest, or strangest, of Fantasy managers will be looking at bringing in Norwich assets with a defensive bent any time soon, regardless of Farke’s comments after the whistle.

The Canaries’ boss said:

It’s a good point with a first clean sheet and solid defending. We have been accused of being a bit too soft, but today we showed real character and steel.

Defending is the base of being successful. It’s difficult at this level when you have so many injured players. I’m looking forward to having all of our centre-backs back, so we are even more competitive. At the moment, we have to find some other solutions.

Instead, it will all be about those still willing to hold their nerve regarding Pukki and, to a lesser extent, Cantwell.

The Canaries actually have a decent enough schedule over the next ten Gameweeks, with the United match and clashes with Arsenal and Leicester City the toughest tests on paper.

That scoring record on the road could be the clincher, however, with Pukki, in particular, looking like a luxury most can now ill-afford where once he was the season’s biggest bargain.

                  25 days, 4 hours ago

                  True, though City have AVL at home, I see a CS for Ota if fit. Maybe just Salah to KDB this week if Ota's fit and the other transfer next week?

                  1. Zlatanzo

                            If both fit for this weekend hold. If 1 or none of them are fit then make the move imo

                        4-3 win for Arsenal with Auba and Lundy hatties will just fine

                        Jimenez and Wilson or Vardy and 4.5?

                            depends on which 5th mid or 4th defender starts in Vardy combo

                          Tempted to go into GW10 with the following team:

                          Heaton
                          Tomori - TAA - Otamendi - Lundstram
                          Salah - Mane - Sterling - Mount - Maddison
                          Abraham - Connolly

                          Midfield HEAVY!

                            Nice ... 12 on the pitch

                            Looks fine, Connolly on bench? I’d be tempted to go two mid price strikers if you can Jimi/Tammy/Wilson etc in 352

                          Magnus Carlsen (OR86) has today broken the world record for most chess games without losing (101).

                            Imagine being this lucky in both FPL and chess!!

                              I don't think luck has much to do with the chess side of things....

                          1) A) Auba or B) Vardy
                          2) A) Soy or B) Rico

                          Good plans?

                          Gazza
                          Otamendi* TAA Lundstram Rico
                          Salah* DSilva Yarmolenko
                          Kun Tammy Auba

                          Button Cantwell Guendouzi Aurier

                          GW10- Ota & Salah to Robbo & KDB for -4
                          GW11-Save FT
                          GW12-Kun to Vardy & save FT
                          GW13-Aurier & DSilva to Soyunucu & Mane for free
                          GW14-Yarmolenko to CHO for free

                          I know that's a very long term planning! 😛

                            25 days, 4 hours ago

                            Sounds good although by GW 11 they plans will be out the window

                            1. Pep Roulette
                              • 2 Years
                              25 days, 4 hours ago

                              The main motive is to have TAA & Robbo double up, Mane instead of Salah, KDB for the whole season!

                          25 days, 4 hours ago

                          Pope
                          Alexander-Arnold, Otamendi, Soyuncu
                          Sterling, Son, David Silva, Mount
                          Firmino, Wilson, Abraham

                          1 FT 1.7 ITB

                          Want KDB back but already have 3 City players so can't just do Son -> KDB.

                          A) Son + Otamendi -> De Bruyne + 6.8m defender (-4)
                          B) Son + David Silva -> De Bruyne + Martial (-4)

                          Strongly favour A as I want to keep Dilva for the next two but not sure which defender to go for. 0.1 short of Robbo or it would've been him.

                            B better long term imo

                            I would suggest A with Alonso, then try to do Alonso to Robbo in or before GW13!

                          Really hoping Connolly gets some gametime over the next couple of matches.

                          Seems to fit Potter's high energy/pressing style. Noticed the MOTD highlights showed Maupay dropping deeper first half to link the midfield, and Connolly playing on the shoulder of the last man. Maupay created a great chance for Connolly.

                          Potter's spoken about 'protecting' Connolly, but I think Connolly only playing 45 minutes on Saturday was a blessing in disguise. Should mean he's fresher for a start this week against EVE, and he only got brought off because of Mooy's red card.

                            Nice insight

                            I'm eyeing trossard though

                            Chances of saka starting?

                                Yea hes on silly money for an 18 year old, they wouldnt pay him that and not play him, especially when he performs like he has lately. Pedro and Willian are being phased out, CHO is the future.

                                should be, at least until he is out of form.

                                Nope but might be worth a gamble though.

                              My planned kane to kun (c) transfer is pretty much a no go now isn't it.....

                                2 juicy home games for Kun! You should do the transfer!

                                Having Aguero is killing me as my ML rival does not have him but has a big lead already on me. We know what he is capable of but the rotation looks a killer. Think I'll drop him for Vardy or the like then try and slowly reinvest the cash around my side...

                                  Imagine captaining him in 2 GWs and boom he explodes

                                  ML ranking is nothing yet. Marathon not sprint, remember

                                    My favourite saying that. Just need some cast iron guarantee that he starts the next 2 but Pep I doubt will give us it. Lets see what tomorrow brings I guess...

                                  Aguero's rotation was always going to come into it as Pep wants to phase in Jesus to replace Aguero when he goes.

                                    See what happens but v hard to spend 12m on a player who you'd want to captain if no idea if he will start..

                                  If Aguero's minutes are managed, I would get him. I think he will play in both this week.

                                  Careful, Aguero usually plays the home matches.

                                                I think his contract ran down and they didn't renew it. He's been brought back now because of the long term injury to Lloris. If Vorm was the better option, I think they would have kept him no?

                                          A) Mcginn -> James (Play 3-5-2)
                                          B) Save FT. To sideways, bench Mcginn.
                                          C) Other suggestion.

                                              Save for now and see what's the deal with salah. If he is fit I would still bank the transfer.

                                            Am I the only one who thinks Aguero is a must to have over Auba and Vardy?

                                              Won’t be the only one, but why not have a regular starter instead of him? That’s what we aim for to score the most points isn’t it?

                                                But it's Aguero he could be picked and explode especially over the next 2. I have both Sterling and KDB as backup captains if needed.

                                                  He could do, and i’d bank on him doing that if City weren’t such a sporadic scoring team, but they are. Points are spread out, just KDB for me and happy with that.

                                              Vardy really isn't in the same price range. There is every chance that Auba will beat Aguero again for points this season.

                                            Does anyone know why Connolly was subbed for March at half time? Tactical switch I guess? Would be nice to have a 4.5 striker who can come off my bench or even start occasionally
