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.

    Is KdB worthy of a spot considering his current deep role? So many better options, with better form and fixtures for way cheaper...

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      with rodri back, he many not be so deep anymore.

    2. Pu-li-sick (sic)
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Could easily have had several assists today if aguero wasn't so off.

    3. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Have you watched the game ?
      He should have had atleast couple assist.
      One of the best players on the pitch today.

        Missed it. Happy to hear that. Just frustrating to have one of your most expensive players constantly blanking.

        1. skilldave
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          Yup was constantly involved in the action today and provided plenty of goalscoring assist chances

    4. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      He wasn’t playing deep today...

    5. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I thought he played quite far forward today with Rhodri back so would definitely keep

    6. Fast Eddie Felson
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      and still on some set pieces too

    7. jason_ni

    8. LSK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Could have had 4 assists today so I’d keep. Might captain him against Chelsea myself

    9. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Deep role? Did you watch him first half, he was basically second striker. Second half he hugged the touch line a bit, I’m holding

  2. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  5. Conik
    • 4 Years

    Great game. As usual Liverpool contrive to succeed. When will the pain of the Liverpool FB double up end?

    Anyway, think I'm in for a green of about 50 places. Woop!

    Feel my season will live or die by getting the city attack right. No obvious route at the moment though.

    1. beric
      • 8 Years

      Whats ypur rank?

      1. Conik

  6. Woy_is_back
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Salah still looks cack. I don´t think I will bring him in.

    1. beric
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Agreed

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Oh really I didn’t watch the second half but he looked class first half

    3. chaser123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Mane didn’t look great today either though I don’t think...

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Looked ok in my opinion.
      Once ankle issues are sorted he will be banging goals in againt weaker teams.

  7. Pu-li-sick (sic)
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Anybody know the timescale of Matip's return? Weeks/months?

    1. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Few more weeks iirc. Could be other side of the IB, maybe a couple weeks after that.

      1. Pu-li-sick (sic)
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah would if I owned. I can get him or Vardy in this week but sterling’s YC count the ONLY thing keeping me away

        1. beric
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          I probably wouldnt be looking to bring him in, am likely to sell when i have 2ft

          1. Ask Yourself

      Sterling no brainer on here it seems.

      1. Ask Yourself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Jealous

    3. LSK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Not confident. Might go with KDB and Captain Salah in the home games

  9. Slitherene
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Can anyone tell me if Baldock is likely to rise tonight?

    1. 1569Tippins

      Depends what his Mrs looks like

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Superb

  10. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Diogo Jota anyone?

    XG of 2.3 over the last 4 gameweeks.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Vardy to Jota would free up a lot of cash for Salah & Mane, might jump on!

      1. AYLD28
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Vardy out LOL

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          Doubt Vardy xG beats Jota by much over the last 4.

          1. Devo-McDuff
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 4 days ago

            The G bit is more important than the x bit.

      2. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Hehehe

    2. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Stop being silly and just get Jimenez

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Don't have the cash.

        1. AYLD28
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          Then take a hit. Don’t get Jota to cover Jimenez

    3. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Like him. Could have done well today, but didn't take his chances. Early subs and yellow cards the minuses.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Could do Connolly to Jota for free or take a hit for KDB/Connolly to Maddison/Jimenez.
        Really not sure if it's the right time to sell KDB.

      2. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        He’s a menace for complaining and getting booked.

        Did look good in parts today.

        1. Rotation's Alter Ego
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 4 days ago

          Thought he was going to get himself sent off at one point. Polar opposite of Vardy's conversion rate so far - lowest in the league out of all forwards that have scored - about time he rectified that!

          Still, bought him last week in the hope that he'll stop underperforming. Got the fixtures to make that improvement for sure.

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      No no no no no not again

    5. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I'd rather have a 5th mid and go 352 for any price less than Jimenez.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        The 5th mids under 6.2m don't look great either tbh.
        Grealish & Trossard the only half decent options but both have question marks around them.

        Have posted my team below.

  11. Rinseboy

    Thoughts on any of these?
    A - Mendy to Robbo

    3. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Jimenez still is imo

  13. RealVirg
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Aside from Plex and Emby...anyone use a good alternative to those 2???

  14. The Wizard of Ozil
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Worth the hit to get Vardy in?

    Pukki, KDB & Cresswell out

    Vardy, Perez(or anybody under 6.2) & TAA inn

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      ahh, no other way to get vardy in?

      1. The Wizard of Ozil
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Not without taking a big hitter out (Kdb, Sterling or Mane)

    2. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Who are your current forwards?

      I dont have vardy, and after today I wouldn't be looking to sell kdb to make the funds.

    Went big this gw, 93 points.

    -4 to get Jim and martial worked.

    1. xtina

      Nice!

    2. VFORVANDETA
      • 3 Years

      Nice one.91 here

    3. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      nice mate! what's your plan this week?
      Get in Robbo?.or salah?

      1. denial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks all. Not sure. One of those two yeah.

    4. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I ended on 90 myself

      Minus 4 of CHO Sterling Boly > Son (c) Martial Chilwell

      Worked out well

  16. Regin
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    manU seem to play great attacking football in alternate matches.
    great against norwich, horrible against bmouth; great against brighton

    they'll be crap vs sheffield, but expect them to score 3 or 4 vs villa.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      We're also bad away from home, Norwich don't count.

    2. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      The Bournemouth game was windy as hell, better for defenders, hence only the one goal

  17. xtina
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Thinking CHO -> Maddy

    Anything worth -4?

    Heaton
    Soy - Taa - Lundy
    KDB - Mount - Sterling - CHO
    Vardy - Ings - Tammy

    Henderson: Rico, Cantwell, Aarons
    4.1 ITB. 1 FT

  18. thunder_mike
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Pope Button
    TAA Soy Lundstram Rico Lascelles
    Sterling KDB Maddison Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham Jiménez

    A) KDB + Lascelles > Mane + Robbo (-4)
    B) Sterling + Lascelles > Mane + Robbo (-4)

    Feeling B as extra cash would allow me to bring in Pulisic or Martial

  19. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Pope
    TAA - Lundy - Soyuncu
    Mane - Sterling - KDB - Mount
    Vardy - Abraham - Connolly

    (4.0 Cantwell Rico Tomori)
    1ft & 1.6m

    A) Connolly ➡️ Jota
    B) KDB & Connolly ➡️ Maddison & Jimenez (-4)

    Thoughts? Any other ideas?

    1. thunder_mike
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      B)

      Jota isn’t worth it

    2. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I don’t get the Jota love.

      Is it people trying to be clever and not get Jimenez?

  20. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Hello International Break!

    Pope
    TAA / Pereira / Lundstram / Janmaat
    Mané / KDB / Tielemans / Mount
    Vardy / Abraham

    Button // Rico / Connolly / Cantwell

    Prospective moves. Which looks best?

    A) Rico > Robertson
    B) Janmaat > Robertson
    C) Mount > Pulisic
    D) Cantwell > Pulisic
    E) Cantwell > Richarlison (Pulisic next GW)

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Can also do Mount > Salah, but with 0 ITB. Palace not the best fixture, mind. Leaves me inflexible elsewhere.

  21. Atletico Junior
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Salah, Sterling or Mané for next gw??

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      All 3!

  22. Bookkeeper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Jimi to get 3 bonus?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Already has.

  23. Tamagotchi Massacre
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Took a -12 to get Vardy, TAA and Martial in for coming run and offloaded City mids. Team I'd otherwise have fielded came in at 60, this one came in at 81(-12).

    Really pleased to have made 9 points and set the team up that I wanted for the next 4-5 game-weeks. And ahead of what will likely become a city firesale too. It's been a really tough season and has forced my hand to switch-up strategy to try to make up ground (600k to 400k this week) over all these much improved casual players. Last week I tried benching Tammy/Mount and only broke even. This week deconstructing and rebuilding the team. Tough, tough times

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Well played. Few things feel better than hits coming off

      1. Tamagotchi Massacre
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        I would never normally dream of it but the coming together of Leicester, Liverpool and United fixture runs was hard to ignore and basically I just went on a hunch that City weren't going to score more than one. I thought Liverpool were going to keep a clean sheet though, so with both Robbo and TAA that was the rough with the smooth

  24. royals forever
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Apart from Sterling or KDB who is your Man City MF of choice

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Nobody.
      So many options from other teams and cheaper

    2. Arctic monkeys
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Wouldn't go near anyone other than those

  25. Miniboss

    Hello boys

    On wildcard.
    Rashford & Maddison/Tielemans will go for Vardy and someone later but they’re in now due to coming price rises.

    Any obvious hotshots missing? 0.2itb

    Pope Button
    Robbo TAA Söyuncu Tomori Lundstrom
    Mane Kdb Maddison Tielemans Dendoncer
    Jimenez Abraham Rashford

  26. Lucas8406
    8 months, 4 days ago

    What should I do
    Pope
    Rico Lundstram Robertson Lowton Kelly
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount Cantwell
    Abraham Vardy Jimenez

    A) Cantwell for Dendoncker and Lowton for Soyuncu for a -4 (will be priced out if Soyuncu goes up)

    B) Cantwell for Dendoncker and Salah for Sterling to double up Pool attack

    C) Cantwell and Dendoncker and Mount out?

    D) Something else

    1. AYLD28
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Hard to say, a Leicester defender is a good shield but double pool attack is a good sword so I’d say it depends where you are and how you like to play

      1. Lucas8406
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Yh it’s hard thanks

  27. AYLD28
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    From 1.2m five weeks ago to 170k this week with 90 points, feels good to be fighting back after a poor start.

    How’s the team looking going forward?

    Pope
    TAA Chilwell Tomori Lundstram Rico
    Son Martial KDB Mane Cantwell
    Vardy Abraham Jiminez

    1FT 0 ITB

    I am debating if I should keep Son, despite his form spurs look so bad. It is West Ham up next though who are equally bad

  28. Tombory
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 4 days ago

    A) TAA
    B) Robertson

    Which to get?

    1. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 4 days ago

      I hope having them both will be the way to go. At some point they’ll stop shipping that one annoying goal in every match.

  29. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 4 days ago

    Angelino looks like he can operate like Mendy which is really good for raz

    1. beric
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 4 days ago

      Cant defend though

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 4 days ago

        I am not looking getting him.

        It's a good boost for Sterling

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 4 days ago

        Neither can Mendy

  30. Eat my goal!

    If you could have a bigger budget would you be happy or would you be worrying about a benching headache?
