Pépé finally delivers as Martial returns for dour Man United win

Thursday night’s Europa League matches gave Fantasy Premier League managers team news clues ahead of Gameweek 10.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Wolves all won their respective meetings but had to work hard for their results.

We’ve assessed the impact these exploits will have on FPL in this latest Scout Notes article…

Arsenal 3 Vitoria Guimaraes 2

Pépé was the hero for Arsenal despite a poor team performance

Goals: Gabriel Martinelli (£4.5m), Nicolas Pépé (£9.3m) x2

Assists: Kieran Tierney (£5.4m), Lucas Torreira (£4.8m), Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m)

Two superb free-kicks from Nicolas Pépé (£9.3m) rescued what was threatening to become a disastrous night for Arsenal in the Europa League.

The Gunners had twice fallen behind to their unheralded visitors, who arrived in London pointless and goalless, before the Ivory Coast international saved the day in the last ten minutes of a frantic affair.

Pépé was only brought on after 75 minutes, but his pace and direct running had an immediate impact before his dead-ball prowess sealed the deal.

He scored from free-kicks awarded for fouls on Lucas Torreira (£4.8m) and then Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m) to maintain Arsenal’s 100% start to their European campaign; a record last night’s performance barely deserved.

Tierney did not put on a particularly impressive performance defensively

Their Portuguese opponents frequently exposed the defensive shortcomings of Unai Emery’s side, opening the scoring after just eight minutes and retaking the lead almost immediately after young striker Gabriel Martinelli (£4.5m) had headed home an equaliser.

Only Joe Willock (£5.0m) was retained from the team that lost at Sheffield United on Monday, but a first start since September 1 for Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) and a defence bolstered by Hector Bellerin (£5.4m) and summer signing Kieran Tierney (£5.4m) suggested a good night ahead for the Gunners.

Instead, an increasingly restless crowd witnessed only sporadic bursts of attacking flair and a consistent vulnerability to the counterattack which Vitoria exploited time and time again.

Tierney had a particularly torrid start to the game as his positioning was twice revealed to be suspect and eventually led to the opening goal.

The left-back did at least grow into the match and it was his fine cross that produced Martinelli’s equaliser.

Lacazette had a poor night in the Europa League

Far more disappointing was Lacazette. He was understandably rusty after close to two months out with an ankle injury, but he did little to suggest he’ll be replacing Bukayo Saka (£4.5m), who was an unused substitute last night, in the starting line-up for Gameweek 10’s fixture against Crystal Palace.

Pépé, however, might just have turned a corner.

Emery certainly hinted at that in his post-match comments.

“It’s important for Pépé. He can gain confidence from tonight. When he scores it’s good for him and the team. He’s getting better, playing minutes, playing matches and scoring goals like tonight and he helped us tonight to win this match.” – Unai Emery

The club’s record signing has struggled to live up to the hype since arriving in the summer, scoring only once and providing two assists in a run of starts since Gameweek 3.

Pépé’s match-winning performance could be just the confidence booster he needs to kick-start his FPL career

Then again, that’s been enough for him to top the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) midfielder charts for Arsenal, with 29 points, and he can only have gained in confidence after making such a massive impact last night.

The Gunners’ schedule all the way through to Boxing Day is favourable – only a trip to Leicester and a trip to Manchester City look beyond them over those ten matches – and Pépé clearly has the tools to take advantage.

His price, and Arsenal’s continued flakiness, might well count against him, however, leaving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m) as the top Gunner probably worth relying on for the foreseeable future.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Martinez; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney; Torreira, Willock (Ceballos 45); Maitland-Niles (Guendouzi 45), Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette (Pépé 75).

Subs: Leno, Ceballos, Pépé, Chambers, Guendouzi, Kolasinac, Saka.

Partizan Belgrade 0 Manchester United 1

Anthony Martial scored the winning goal for Manchester United

Goals: Anthony Martial (£7.5m)

Assists: Brandon Williams (£4.0m)

An Anthony Martial (£7.5m) penalty was enough to secure Manchester United a workmanlike win in Serbia.

The Frenchman’s first start since August was the key piece of team news in a side that included six other changes from Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

Only stand-in skipper Harry Maguire (£5.4m), Marcos Rojo (£4.8m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) and Scott McTominay (£5.0m) kept their places, although manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer again opted for a formation involving three centre-halves and two wing-backs.

That contained the Premier League leaders for the most part in Gameweek 9 and it did a similar job on Partizan, who were kept to just two shots on target in a generally dour affair.

In truth, it was another dull attacking performance from Manchester United

United’s own attacking threat was even more subdued. Martial’s penalty, awarded when left wing-back Brandon Williams (£4.0m) was tripped in the area, was their only successful attempt all night.

It was also United’s first Europa League shot on target since the 89th minute of their opening game against Astana, which speaks volumes for the offensive threat of Solskjaer’s side at present.

The manager has been keen to use midfielder Martial as a central striker – out-of-position Fantasy gold dust that brought in 19 points and more than a million managers during the heady first three Gameweeks of the season.

Injury promptly put paid to all that and although he was again employed upfront last night, Martial looked every inch a player with six minutes of action since Gameweek 4 during an utterly underwhelming first-half performance only redeemed by his successful spot-kick.

Martial may have scored but still looked rusty after so long on the sidelines

United’s schedule is seriously tempting. Aside from a nasty doubleheader of Spurs at home and Manchester City away in Gameweeks 15 and 16, they have a great run of fixtures from now until New Year’s Day.

But Martial looks like he’ll need more minutes before he can be seriously considered as an option again, leaving the team’s defenders as the best way to exploit such a favourable run.

Only three teams have conceded fewer than the nine goals United have allowed in the league this season, with Maguire a generally steady influence at the back. Should Solskjaer continue to employ three centre-halves, budget options such as Rojo or the currently injured Axel Tuanzebe (£4.4m) could be worth a look alongside regular starters Maguire and Victor Lindelof (£5.4m).

All that being said, Solskjaer reverted to a back four after 60 minutes last night, resting Wan-Bissaka, moving Phil Jones (£4.8m) across to right-back and giving winger Daniel James (£6.1m) an extended run-out.

Fantasy managers should continue to monitor the budgetpriced Brandon Williams (right)

For those looking for a serious punt, Solskjaer’s post-match praise for the 19-year-old Williams was an eye-opener.

“Brandon was man of the match. He was absolutely excellent. Fantastic attitude, great attitude, great in the air, brave and he gets us a penalty by driving forward with the ball, so we have found a left-back there.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Whether he becomes a regularly starting left-back remains to be seen.

For now, like so many of his team-mates, he is probably worth monitoring rather than purchasing.

Manchester United XI (: Romero, Jones, Maguire, Rojo, Wan-Bissaka (James 60), Garner (Pereira 82), McTominay, Lingard, Williams, Mata. Martial (Rashford 60).

Subs: Grant, Lindelof, Rashford, Pereira, Fred, James, Greenwood.

Slovan Bratislava 1 Wolves 2

Jiménez scored in the Europa League for Wolves once again

Goals: Romain Saiss (£4.4m), Raul Jiménez (£7.1m)

Assists: None

Wolves produced a stirring second-half comeback to make it back-to-back wins in Europe as Raul Jiménez (£7.1m) continued his recent run of good form.

The visitors took a while to adapt to the strange conditions in Slovakia, with a game supposedly being played behind closed doors actually involving 20,000 school children screeching enthusiastically throughout.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo made five changes to the side which drew 1-1 with Southampton, with Max Kilman (£4.0m), Ruben Vinagre (£4.3m), Matt Doherty (£6.0m), Romain Saiss (£4.4m) and Morgan Gibbs-White (£4.8m) all coming in.

But Jiménez again started up front and his match-winning penalty, awarded when he himself was fouled, made it seven goals from Europa League qualifying and group games this season.

More pertinently for Fantasy managers, the Mexican has also started producing domestically, with a goal and two assists from his last two starts.

Jiménez is in great form but is not getting much rest right now

Fatigue might be an issue in the long term, but rotation clearly isn’t at present. Jiménez has been an ever-present in the league and the club’s European exertions don’t seem to have overly hurt them so far – they have lost only one of six league matches following Thursday night action, although four have ended in draws.

A solid seven-match schedule, during which a Gameweek 11 trip to Arsenal will probably be the toughest test, looks like a good time to join the 10.1% of FPL managers with the in-form Jiménez in their squads.

Wolves had to dig deep for the victory in Bratislava. The hosts had much the better of the first half and went in ahead at the interval when a shot deflected off Conor Coady (£5.0m) and past keeper Rui Patricio (£5.2m).

The introduction of Adama Traoré (£5.1m) at half-time helped to turn the tide and the visitors were level when Morocco international Saiss scored with a shot which goalkeeper Dominik Greif should have kept out.

Jota’s red card did not help Jiménez’s hopes of a midweek rest anytime soon

Jiménez then sealed the win, although Wolves had to withstand some late pressure to secure the three points.

Their cause wasn’t helped by the 87thminute dismissal of substitute Diogo Jota (£6.1m) for two yellow cards.

That might have made it harder for his team-mates, but the striker’s 3.3% ownership will be delighted to know that their man will now be suspended for the next European match on November 7, meaning he’ll not be subject to rotation issues in the two league games – away at Arsenal and home to Aston Villa – which sandwich that tie.

Of course, the flip-side of that for Jiménez owners means that he will almost certainly have to play in the next continental clash – which should only increase fears of fatigue for the Mexican.

Further Fantasy good news was delivered to the 5.9% of managers who own Ruben Neves (£5.4m) as the midfielder spent the night on the bench, while the 9.6%-owned Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) was only introduced after 76 minutes.

Wolves XI (3-5-2): Patricio; Doherty, Boly, Coady, Kilman, Vinagre; Moutinho, Gibbs-White (Jota 59), Saiss (Dendoncker 76); Jiménez, Cutrone (Traoré 45).

Substitutes: Neves, Jota, Otto, Perry, Dendoncker, Traoré, Ruddy.

      United are not out of sorts defensively. Infact one of the tightest defense in the league by conceding only 9 with sheffeild liverpool and leicester conceding fewer

      1. In Moyes We Thrust #freeshi…

        True. They always find a way to concede though. Norwich have lost their touch in the final third recently it seems tbf

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years

    Bench 2 of:...

    A) Otamendi (AVL) - City defence looking a little shady, and he might not even start
    B) Soy (sou) - The saints scored in every home match under current manager
    C) Tomori (bur) - Burnley have pretty good home record, scoring 6 in 4 aswell..
    D) Lundstram (whu) - Well, it's Lundstram? He's insane 😮
    E) Montoya (EVE) - Everton only scored 1 goal away from home this season

    Overall I'd be quite happy to start all 5 of them, which means it's hard to predict which 2 gonna be on the bench 🙂

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B & E

    2. Will Kane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I have A, D and E in my squad. I'm playing Otamendi and Montoya with Lundstram as first sub (TAA my 3rd def). I think Ota is worth another shot for a decent home fixture but no doubt City will find a way to concede. Tough call between Lund and Montoya, I based it on exactly what you have highlighted, Everton's lack of away goals. I think with your selection I would bench Soy and Lund. Chelsea clean sheet away at Ajax suggests they may be tightening up and Burnley are potentially without Chris Wood...

      1. Phlajo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Thanks for the input. Will start Ota and Tomori I think and bench Soy.

        Still not sure about Lundstram og Montoya though 🙂

    Has anyone seen WAT play since QSF took over? Thinking of getting in Janmaat... any clue how attacking he is / CS chances?

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Watford have looked a lot more defensively sound the past couple games. I've looked at getting him also but decided to hold on Otamendi so not anymore. Good fixtures also.

      1. KGFC
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Thanks, Tempestic. I have a FT to burn so thinking of punting on him.

    2. applebonkers
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      he's always a great attacking threat under any manager. kabasele has made a noticeable difference defensively, dawson and cathcart looked so flat-footed before. this is the good version of kabasele though who definitely makes a difference, the red card and penalty threat is never far away

      1. KGFC
        • 3 Years

        Thanks, Apple!

  5. Tempestic

    Why are people so confident Sterling starts this one? Exact same circumstances as gw6 and he was completely rested that game. Ik it can easily be different this time around but still puts me off the captaincy tbh.

    1. Greenbackbøøg…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      captaining kdb this week anyway

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Same, have been from the start

        1. Tempestic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Probably wont matter when Sterling is rested again and everyone gets KDB captaincy anyways..

          1. FleckyT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Think I am going to follow the trend. So hard because when I don't captain aguero he will monster haul

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Chase the upside. Sterling the best captaincy shout by some margin

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Idk, KDBs stats for home games look better. If I thought Sterling would start I would go for it but I'm just no convinced. Who knows, 50/50 call this one. I'm gonna play it safe I reckon.

    3. lugs
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      i'm not confident just hopeful he starts the weekend, gets rested during the week, then starts again next weekend

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        That does seem logical but last time he was rested in the league and then played the cup so who knows...

        1. lugs
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          don't remind me, that was the 8-0 game and my 2 City players Sterling and Zinc didn't play 🙁

          1. Tempestic
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Ouch, I wildcarded that week due to the doubts over Sterling and Zinc starts plus other fixes in my team. Did keep Sterling but brought in Auba on WC to be my captaincy option vs Villa instead due to the uncertainty around city. When i saw the lineup and Sterling was benched i was over the moon, I had made the correct call for once! Not.. Ended up getting my 5 points from Auba and then sterling doenst come on at all while my vc KDB gets 17. Cry

        U reckon? Well hes obv not going to be dropped this time around!

          only pep knows but there were physical and performance warning signs back then. not sure either is a factor here

      waiting to read 'but man city need to win to catch liverpool' as if wanting to win titles isn't the exact reason why people get rested

      I like Vardy+Pepe tbh 🙂

      Vardy way better than Maddo, and Pepe has more confidence now after 2 goals yesterday in only 15 minutes. And surely Pepe will start as he got subbed in at 75th

    Posted on an older article but may be interesting to those with skin in the game...

    Potentially interesting stat. Looking back over last few seasons in PL and Aguero has never been subbed in off the bench at Home except when he is just back from injury. He either starts or doesn’t play.

    Take from that what you will but for me it makes it clear what my C and VC decisions should be 😉

    1. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      If they need goals and he’s on the bench he’s coming on.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Just saying what the stats show...

        Another one:

        In all the PL matches he has come on from the bench since 2014, he has only scored 2 goals (1 in each of 2 games)

        That stat I don’t like!!

  16. Maddamotha
    • 3 Years

    What would you do here? 2FTs and dont know what to do.

    2 FT and 0.3 ITB

    Pope
    TAA Otamendi Lundstram Tomori
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Tammy Wilson

    (Button Soy Cantwell Greenwood)

    A) Greenwood > Conolly
    B) Cantwell > Dendocker (get 0.5 cash bought Cantwell for 4.9)
    C) Smth else

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Otamendi + Cantwell > someone + someone

      1. Maddamotha
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Cant drop Ota with those fixtures. Hopefully he starts.

    2. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I think B of those - the cash will be useful

  18. ninja

    Currently have
    Kane Pukki and King up top.
    Thinking of getting rid of Kane and king with my 2 fts this week. Gives me 17.7m. Best 2 strikers to bring in to replace them ??
    Mids are
    Sterling Salah Mount McNeil Dendonker....

    1. antis0cial
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I'd be looking to get KDB in

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Probably Vardy + Abraham

    3. iL PiStOlErO
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Auba, Vardy, Jimenez, Wilson, Tammy mix from those two. Or if you want to go brave take Kun.

  19. FF Dirtbag
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    How does it look for the weekend? (fingers crossed for some point for once)

    Pope
    TAA Dunk Lundstram
    Mane KDB(c) Maddison Mount
    Aubameyang Vardy Abraham

    Button; Tomori, Soyuncu, Dendoncker

    1. FleckyT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Strong, I have a similar benching problem

    2. antis0cial
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Looks good, I'd play Tomori over Dunk but could go either way

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yeah thats my only toss up

    3. Geriatric Unathletic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Just a point? I would be hoping for a little more than that :).

      A, B

    4. FF Dirtbag
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Lund due to sheffield united's defensive stats and west ham aren't the best at the mo.
      Tomori as the second one for me.

    5. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      That's the order basically

      1. FleckyT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Yeah, I think so

  21. The Brown Casanova
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Play Cantwell (MUN) or Rico (wat)?

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Rico

    2. Peteski29

  22. andre_c
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 11 days ago

    A) Salah, Ota > KDB, Tomori (GW12 may bring Mane in)
    B) Mahrez, Ota > KDB, Janmaat

    1. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      B. But would think about someone other than Janmaat.
      Loads of better options in that price range than him imo...

      1. andre_c
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 11 days ago

        like who? I only have 4.3m

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Sorry, scratch that.
          Thought Janmaat was more than 4.3... 😆

  25. markloe

    1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A. Not a Maddison fan and Sterling is the long term pick for city despite my own team including Kun

      1. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        yes, me neither tbh, I tried to be clever by leaving the cash in the bank then choose the City option most likely to start but it obviously is pretty unclear

    2. The Brown Casanova
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago
