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.

    2. Murder On Zidanesfloor

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

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

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

  13. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 6 days 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.

    1. jonnybhoy
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      B better long term imo

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      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.

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Nice insight

      I'm eyeing trossard though

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 days ago

      With Trosard back Collonny may not see tha many minutes.

  15. NABIL - 1 season 1der
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

    Chances of saka starting?

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Vry high. Will be essential midfield fodder after tonight.

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        You cheer me up for a while

        1. Tempestic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 6 days ago

          Think he'll start with Laca on the bench one more week

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 6 days ago

            Here's hoping thanks man

  16. Stimps

    Is CHO actually nailed?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 days ago

      nope just in good form

      1. Aston VII lalalala
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        Has he not played any matches he's been available for?

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      No one knows but could be

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      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.

    4. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

    5. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Nope but might be worth a gamble though.

  17. Flynny
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

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

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      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...

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        Imagine captaining him in 2 GWs and boom he explodes

        ML ranking is nothing yet. Marathon not sprint, remember

        1. Jon Walter's Hatty
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 6 days ago

          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...

          1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 6 days ago

            No one can guarantee you that

            Just stick to your guns imo

    3. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        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..

    4. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

    5. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Careful, Aguero usually plays the home matches.

    6. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Yeah, looks to be 2nd in the pecking order at best

  18. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

    Need help with the following moves. Which one looks good?

    A) Son+Kane> Mane+Rashford (-4)
    B) Son+Kane> Martial+Auba (-4)
    C) Kane>Auba
    D) Son>Martial

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      E) Son+Kane> Martial+Kun (-4) but have KDB and Sterling as well.

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Martial is wait and see imo

      C looks best

    Kinda lost and would love some help/advice please and thanks.

    Pope/McGovern
    TAA/Tierney/Tomori/Lundy/Rico
    Salah/KDB/Maddison/Mount/Hayden
    Kun/Pukki/Tammy

    Obv pukki party is over and I need to leave it so what’s my best options?

    A) Pukki/TAA-Vardy/Boly
    B)Pukki/Maddison-Vardy/5.6 mid
    C)Pukki/Salah-Auba/Marez
    D)Pukki/Hayden-Martial/Connely (3-5-2) connely benched
    E)Pukki-Jimmy

    A&b&c would be for a hit, will WC in few weeks and get pool back in. TIA

    1. KDB4PREZ

      D for hit also 🙁

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der

      Hold and reassess next week

  20. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

    Gazzaniga
    TAA Otamendi Lundstram Rico
    Salah DSilva Yarmolenko
    Kun Auba Tammy

    Button Cantwell Guendouzi Aurier

    A. Ota & Salah to Robbo & KDB
    B. Ota & Guendouzi to 4.4 def & CHO

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      A!

    2. Cube
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      Is Gazzaniga that nailed?.. Isn't Vorm second choice?

      1. Aston VII lalalala
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        Vorm was let go, Gazza wasn't

        1. Cube
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 6 days ago

          Let go how?

          1. Aston VII lalalala
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 6 days ago

            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?

            1. Cube
              • 3 Years
              1 year, 6 days ago

              Yh, makes sense

              1. Aston VII lalalala
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 year, 6 days ago

                He's still in my team, but I'm seriously considering swapping him out for Pope. He's my only regret on my WC.

  21. Maddamotha

    Bench one of these :

    A) Tomori (BUR A)
    B) Soyuncu (SOU A)

    4. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years

      A

      C at least got some decent attacking threat

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        A got some decent CS potential too!

    Guys, best move here?

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

    Ryan
    Robbo Ota Tomori Lundstram
    Salah Sterling(c) Kdb Mount
    Wilson Abraham

    Mcginn Soy Greenwood

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

      1. DMP
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Ty mate.

  24. Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

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

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

      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?

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 6 days ago

        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.

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 6 days ago

          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.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            This

    2. Aston VII lalalala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 6 days ago

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

  25. FPLShaqiri
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 6 days ago

    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

  26. Nomar

    Pukki to come back with a goal against United on Sunday?
