Scout Notes

Vardy party continues ahead of even kinder fixture run

Leicester City 2-0 Arsenal

Goals: Jamie Vardy (£9.5m), James Maddison (£7.4m)

Assists: Youri Tielemans (£6.6m), Vardy

Bonus Points: Vardy x3, Çaglar Söyüncü x2 (£4.8m), Ricardo Pereira x1 (£6.3m), Maddison x1

Goals from Jamie Vardy (£9.5m) and James Maddison (£7.4m) helped take Leicester City to second in the league and the pair ever further into the hearts and minds of Fantasy Premier League managers worldwide.

Since losing, narrowly and unluckily, at Liverpool in Gameweek 8, the Foxes have become something of an irresistible force, so it felt almost inevitable they would sweep aside an Arsenal team far from being an immovable object at present.

The only surprise was that it took Brendan Rodgers’ men nearly 70 minutes to find a way past Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno (£5.0m).

When they did, it was with a slick team goal to warm many a Fantasy heart, involving four of the side’s most owned players.

Tielamsn provided the assist for Vardy’s goal against Arsenal

Maddison and Ricardo Pereira (£6.3m) exchanged passes on the right, allowing Youri Tielemans (£6.6m) to burst into the box and centre for Vardy to guide the ball home.

Of the quartet, only Tielemans (9.4%) does not have double-digit ownership in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), and that is surely only a matter of time.

The Belgian has two goals and as many assists from the last four Gameweeks and shared top billing with Maddison for both attempts and chances created against Arsenal. His £6.6m price tag makes him slightly better value than his midfield partner, although Maddison edges it for overall points scored, by 62 to 57.

The England man notched his second goal in three Gameweeks to secure the win against the Gunners, rifling home from the edge of the area following Vardy’s lay-off. Only Liverpool and Manchester City players are now ahead of him in FPL’s midfield scoring charts, with all four of them considerably more expensive.

Maddison and Vardy have both offered great value in recent weeks

As for the game’s highest overall scorer, it’s… Jamie Vardy.

He has 11 goals for the season, eight of which have come in the last five Gameweeks, and two of his three assists this campaign have arrived since Gameweek 10.

Much has been made of the striker’s relatively low shot total. He’s had 25 attempts – a figure matched or bettered by 13 other forwards – but delve a little deeper and you’ll find only three have had more big chances than his 12 this season.

Add Vardy’s clinical finishing to Leicester’s dynamism and creativity and 92 FPL points are the result.

Rodgers was understandably happy to praise his striker after the match.

“He is up there with the very, very top strikers in European football with what he brings to a team, his pressing. We’ve allowed him to do essentially what he wants to do – he’s so honest, he’d press the whole back four if he could.” – Brendan Rodgers

Pereira has been unfortunate not to get more attacking returns of late

The Foxes will face Brighton (minus Lewis Dunk (£4.6m)), Everton, Watford, Aston Villa and Norwich after the international break. Little wonder, then, that seven of the top 20 most bought players heading into Gameweek 13 (a full fortnight away) are from Leicester.

And the 21st is Pereira.

The wing-back, at £6.3m, is the most expensive route into a defence that’s kept three consecutive clean sheets and now leads the way for both shut-outs (five) and goals conceded (eight).

Pereira’s offensive threat is the reason for his lofty price tag, although he’s only produced attacking returns (two goals) in two matches this season having proved rather unfortunate.

He did earn a bonus point against Arsenal, but there are cheaper and equally cheerful alternatives to be had.

Söyüncü has been offering Fantasy managers great value in defence

Top of that particular shop is Çaglar Söyüncü (£4.8m), who has been outstanding over the last three Gameweeks, providing three clean sheets, a goal and five bonus points, two of which came on Saturday.

On another day, he could have been on for a second assist of the season when he was blatantly fouled in the box by Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m), only for VAR to turn a blind eye based on an arguable offside call involving Maddison.

As a result, he’s ‘just’ produced the 28 points since Gameweek 10 and it is no shock to see him behind only Vardy and Maddison for transfers-in among Leicester players.

Chilwell has failed to replicate the dizzy heights of his double-figure haul at Southampton

Another defender gaining owners is Ben Chilwell (£5.7m), who brought in a monster 19-point haul in the 9-0 drubbing of Southampton in Gameweek 10 and was half a post away from scoring again last week against Crystal Palace.

He’s more than doubled his ownership, to 11.6%, in a fortnight, but was unusually quiet against the Gunners, creating just the one chance and having no goal attempts whatsoever.

Still, with those fixtures to come, owning Leicester players across the pitch, from the ever-reliable Kasper Schmeichel (£5.2m), whose 52 points has him joint-top of the goalkeeper standings, all the way through to Vardy up top, looks like an absolute no-brainer.

And such is their form at present, even a nasty Christmas double-header of Manchester City away and Liverpool at home doesn’t look beyond them, particularly as the fixtures that follow are set fair again until Gameweek 25 on the dim and distant date of February 1.

Arsenal increasingly look like a no-fly zone for Fantasy managers

As for Arsenal, they’re currently doing a fine impression of an unsettled team full of players shorn of confidence under a manager with an increasingly tenuous grip on his job. Which is, of course, precisely where they’re at.

None of that makes for rich Fantasy pickings.

Leicester fired in 19 shots, to the Gunners’ eight, on Saturday, with seven on target to Arsenal’s one.

None of that was anything new as only Villa and Norwich have allowed more attempts than the 197 conceded by Unai Emery’s side this season.

If save points are your thing, then Leno is your man. The keeper has made a league-leading 49 stops, which is seven clear of his closest rival, Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m).

Unai Emery switched to a three-man defence for the first time this season

Emery tried to address that by switching to a back three at the King Power Stadium, with Rob Holding (£4.5m) handed a first start of the season alongside David Luiz (£5.8m) and Callum Chambers (£4.4m) at centre-half.

It didn’t work.

Arsenal were overwhelmed by Leicester’s high press, which forced them to cough up the ball in their own half time and again during a relentlessly dismal first period from the visitors.

They were at least more composed and cohesive as a defensive unit after the interval, a vague positive that Emery was keen to stress post-match.

“I know we are receiving criticism, but I have done before and I have recovered. I accept all the criticism. It is normal. Today we did one step ahead being better defensively.” – Unai Emery

Arsenal’s premium forwards have largely let their owners down of late

And things could have been so different, had Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) not missed a golden chance from six yards out.

The striker does have the makings of a real differential punt in the short term as the Gunners’ next four fixtures involve Southampton and Brighton at home and trips to Norwich and West Ham.

But the 1.7%-owned Frenchman is yet to score since returning from injury in Gameweek 9 and it showed when he fluffed his one big line on Saturday.

Fellow forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) has eight goals to his name this season, but only one in the last five Gameweeks, Lacazette having started three of those matches.

The Gabonese international was kept to only one shot at Leicester, while having another one, which found the net, correctly ruled out for offside.

Özil has started getting back into the Arsenal team

Behind them – in every sense of the word – came Mesut Özil (£7.2m).

The midfielder was drafted in by 1,870 managers hoping he might sprinkle his mercurial dust over the fixture. What they got was one chance created and zero shots from 90 minutes of something far removed from the notion of good, honest toil.

Emery allowed the speedier and more direct threat provided by Nicolas Pépé (£9.2m) just 13 minutes against Leicester, but neither he, nor Özil, nor any Arsenal midfielder, in fact, deserves much Fantasy attention at present.

Arsenal usually find a way to score however wretched their form might be. They’ve now blanked twice in four Gameweeks and that’s as damning as the evidence gets for those – and there are now many – who want Emery out as soon as possible.

The manager is well aware of his perilous situation.

“We need to recover our confidence. We need to be patient with some circumstances, and we are going to do that.” Unai Emery

Patience is a commodity valued by Arsenal’s board, but it must be wearing very thin at present. It’s certainly even thinner among Fantasy managers as the side’s most popular asset – the 25.6%-owned Aubameyang – is already experiencing significant sales for Gameweek 13.

Even those tasty fixtures don’t look like saving him as Fantasy heads continue to be turned, quite rightly, by the riches on offer at Leicester.

Leicester City XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Söyüncü, Evans, R Pereira; Ndidi; H Barnes (Praet 74′), Maddison, Tielemans, Pérez (D Gray 60′); Vardy.

Arsenal XI (3-4-1-2): Leno; Holding (Pépé 77′), D Luiz, Chambers; Kolašinac, Guendouzi, Torreira (Willock 80′), Bellerín; Özil; Aubameyang, Lacazette.

        Don't have to see a heatmap of KDB's average position to realize he was almost level with Aguero....if his teammates could finish he could have easily had 3 assists today.

    4. Stoichkov#8

      Lets give him one more game. He looked really good today.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Probably Martial, but it's a coin toss for me, Wolves finding some form at the mo.

    7. Django Unchained
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Martial

      Maddy probably

    2. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Maddison but close.

    3. 404_FC
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Martial

      1. Django Unchained
        1 month, 4 days ago

        I went for martial , not much in it

  5. joelsprylar
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Has anyone seen Palace games recently?

    I am thinking about PVA and Zaha after this GW with very juicy fixtures.

    1. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      They are not exactly prolific. Ayew is possibly a reasonable shout as a bench player.

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yeah have watched a few games recently and as a PVA owner up until last week I wouldnt advise it really. Not potent enough in attack and prone to conceding goals. Apart from Eve in GW1 their only clean sheets have come v Norwich and Villa.

    3. KINGS
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Just go with guts

  6. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Is Tomori still good value at 4.8?

    I have Willems who has almost identical stats and is cheaper. Chelsea aren't exactly solid at the back, but I think long term I'd rather have a Chelsea defender than a Newcastle one. He would be my first bench player, I probably can't afford him if he goes up again.

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Tomori is excellent value. Top 4 nailed defender who gets bps.

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Despite not being a clean sheet machine, a Chelsea defender who has shown some attacking intent for less than 5m has to be worth holding on to.

    3. Shark
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Chelsea up there for xGA stats. Tomori still a great pick. A clean sheet in Europe last outing too.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Thanks all

  7. Budweiser

    Are people doing transfers now or after the int break?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      If I was certain what I wanted to do I’d do it right now.

      I’m not, so no idea when I’ll do any.

    2. Chelsea Dagger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      just did one to catch price rises ... risky but usually pays off

    3. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years

      Did it earlier.maddis in. Mount out.

    4. Django Unchained

      I'm doing mine now , cant get a price rise

    5. Pinball Wizard
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I did Mount to Martial only fo TV sake. But it’s a risky game.

    6. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Did CHO to Tielemans. Got Rico and Aurier on the bench who I don't mind playing this week if something really bad happens.

  10. The Man Pastore

    Can Firmino be an option from now? He could come good with this run of fixture?

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Think he's the 5th best Pool option after Salah/Mane/TAA/Robbo - just not enough value for me as I wouldn't trust captaining him

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Great player but not for FPL, he's too selfless and better value elsewhere.

    3. Bees4Lyf

      don’t think I would, jimi and Abraham over him

    4. Django Unchained

      Chris wood looks hot at the moment and upgrade 1 of your defenders

  11. dezille
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thoughts on what to do with this? 2FTs, 1.0 ITB

    Pope
    TAA Soy Lund Rico (Tomori)
    Sterling KDB Son Mount (Cantwell)
    Vardy Abraham (Pukki)

    Players in my thoughts: Salah, Mane, Maddison, Martial, Rashford
    Players on the cutting line: Sterling, Son, Pukki, Mount

    I need Mane, but not sure whether to get rid of Sterling or Son. Son would be safer due to ownership, and I'm not particularly enjoying being an owner atm. Minutes worries, spurs form, international duty. Sterling isn't really captainable though in comparison to Liv assets. Also need to finally leave the Pukki party. I need to decide whether to upgrade Pukki to stick with 343, which is my preferred formation, or downgrade to a fodder (which would get rid of benching defenders headache)

    A) Sterling > Mane
    B) Son, Pukki > Mane > Mousset/Ayew/Greenwood, this would allow me to go Sterling > Salah the following week if I was feeling an attacking double up differential.
    C) Do nothing until after the break but be priced out of Mane/Salah double up.

    1. camarozz

      I did A last wk. And thinking something similar B only Auba out to fund Robbo/Martial and a swap to 352...

        What are your thoughts on Mousset/Ayew/Greenwood? Both Sheff Utd & Palace have great upcoming fixtures. Not quite sure of Musset's nailedness based on his minutes altho has had some attacking returns recently.

    3. Django Unchained
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Mane in sterling out

  12. Tsparkes10

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Oh sorry I didn't say anything did I, do you like the idea of a 2nd keeper for Button?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Not permanently. Hendo set and forget is the plan, so idk

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Hmmm just ride it out then maybe, CS are hard to come by anyway so you would probably just be losing 2pts

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years

      Yeah, Pulisic, Martial and Maddison are now the flavour of the month, I have all 3

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Can you get Pulisic for Mount aswell? Tielemans is a very good pick to, he is another one people are getting/got.

    2. Mithrandir, the Grey Pilgri…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I'm keeping Mount. Cannot afford to get P without getting rid of Salah KDB Sterling.

      For his price Mounts doing well.

      Mount and Jimi > Martial and Pulisic + bench striker.
      Will easily cover the points from Vardy at better value. Vardy is the emporer's new clothes (comparatively)

      B all the way

  15. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Who would you rather have (ignoring price):

    A: Salah
    B: Mane

    1. Salt'N'Pepe
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A coin toss for me. Possibly Salah if he stays fit through the IB.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        It's really tough
        Mane seems to edge it on stats, but Salah gets the benefit of some set pieces (penalties and corners)

    3. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I've had Salah for ages and I'd say Mane

    4. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      As a Salah owner, I’d choose Mane

    5. Django Unchained
      1 month, 4 days ago

      B

    6. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I think A

  16. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Thinking of selling Auba to fund the following...

    -4

    Auba➡️Mousset to do..

    Rico➡️Robbo

    Cantwell➡️Martial

    352 formation

    Pope

    Robbo/TAA/Lund

    Mane/Kdb/Mount/Tieleman/
    Martial

    Vardy/Tammy

    (Heaton/Mousset/Soy/Ming)

    Maybe??

    1. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yes looks good

    2. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Looks very good

  17. UpTheCherries
    1 month, 4 days ago

    A Jimenez Martial Dendonker 3-4-3

    B Connolly Mount Son 3-5-2

    1. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I prefer A

    2. Hulk Smash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      A

    3. UpTheCherries

      Cheers guys!

  18. skins1979

    2 free transfers, 0.4 itb. what would you do with this lot:

    Gazzaniga, button
    Dunk, pereira, taa, Otamendi, Lund
    Mane, de bruyne, martial, Dendoncker, Mount
    Wilson, Vardy, Abraham

  19. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Do these moves justify a -4?

    Sterling & Greenwood > Maddison & Jiminez

    1. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yes

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      If you do it who will go to bench this GW?

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Mount

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Than probably yes..good moves long term too

  20. JoeJitzu +42
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Is Sterling & Connolly ➡ Maddison & Vardy (-4) a good move?

    1. seewhyaxe
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yes if no benching headache

  21. seewhyaxe
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Who has no city assets after intended transfers?

    I feel like doing these for -4:

    Sterling to Mane
    KDB to cheapie
    Comply to Vardy

    1. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Only one I’d be hesitant to lose would be KDB

    2. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I'd be tempted by just David Silva
      Got 11 points in both the following games after City lost!

  22. Oh Maddison
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Hold the FT during the break or change now?
    Mount -> Pulisic / Maddison / Tielemans

    Current team
    TAA / Robbo / Lund / Rico / Soy
    Mane / KDB / Martial / Mount / Donk
    Abraham / Vardy / Jimenez

    1. Oh Maddison
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 4 days ago

      With Maddison going up I have the exact money, so 0.1 more on to Puli, that's why

      Scraped through by 1pt two GWs in a row...smooth 🙂

        That usually happens sooner or later, next year you may win 🙂

        Gw8 33-4 = 29 here... Safety score was 30 so I guess there is a typo.

      Thanks for this TM.
      At 22 last night I thought my number was up, but alas, I live to fight another day.

      ‘Enjoy’ the IB all.

      Always nice to scrape through after an 8pt hit. This is the competition that always worries me when I take a big hit like that.

        Sorry, out since ages ago! My bad 🙂

  24. PURPLE-RONNIE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    No idea what to do with this team lads, getting vardy ASAP but who should make way?

    Pope
    Soy Lund TAA
    Mount Mane Maddison KDB Sterling
    Jimenez Abraham

    Subs: Rico tomori Connolly
    0.7 in bank

    Could do sterling and Connolly to vardy and martial but I’d have a benching headache?

    Any other suggestions?

    1. KINGS
      1 month, 4 days ago

      KDB to Denc

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Sterling to a cheapie? Upgrade somebody later.

      1. PURPLE-RONNIE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        This would be for a -4 as I only have 1FT, would it be better to bring in martial anyway?

  25. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Villa fans is Heaton injury serious?

  26. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Seems like there is alot of hits this week.

    1. Django Unchained
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I took a hit , was 8,000 now at 30,000 after this gameweek

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        They don't always pay off straight away, but in the long run it should pay, just be confident in your pick.

        1. Django Unchained
          1 month, 4 days ago

          Aguero, donker, 4.0 out Robertson,martial, wood in

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 4 days ago

            And you still dropped? Wow

    2. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Lot of people do transfers without pushing the WC button until later

  27. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    I do get the City assets firesale but think City will put several past Chelsea after the IB on the backlash of that Liverpool defeat!

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Yeah could be so, but much better value in mid priced mids now that everyone is spreading the funds.

    2. KINGS
      1 month, 4 days ago

      I think so. Probably will not hastily sell Raz atm. In fact he’s captain potential

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 4 days ago

        that's my feeling too although armband is currently on Richarlison... Norwich innit!

  28. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Gone midnight and not updated, fpl is taking the mickey.

  29. Daghe Munegu
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 4 days ago

    Sterling + Yarmo + Dendoncker to Maddison + Pulisic + Martial for - 4 ?
    Guendouzi Salah Sterling KDB Yarmolenko
    Abraham vardy Ayew

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 4 days ago

      Solid moves, i have them and Salah.

  30. UpTheCherries
    1 month, 4 days ago

    WC to...

    Pope
    Robbo Pereira Lundstram
    Mane KDB Maddison Martial
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

    Or....

    Pope

    1. Double Treble

      B better.

      Better GK there than Pope, i will upgrade bench with that luxury Salah.

      1. UpTheCherries
        1 month, 4 days ago

        Thinking of switching to Hendo next GW. Not got much budget to play with.
