Wolves excel in a 3-4-3 again as owners await further Jimenez injury news

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Ruben Neves (£5.3m), Raul Jimenez (£7.3m) | Trezeguet (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Joao Moutinho (£5.3m), Adama Traore (£5.2m) | None
  • Bonus: Jimenez, Neves x3, Trezeguet x1

Nuno Espirito Santo’s return to a 3-4-3 has helped unlock Wolverhampton Wanderers’ attacking potential in the past few months.

Since the Wolves head coach revisited the formation in earnest in Gameweek 6, the West Midlands club have shown steady improvement.

Santo’s troops are indeed unbeaten in the top flight since that 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace, a run that stretches back seven league games.

They have also scored in every match over that period.

It’s not quite as simplistic as basic formation choices, of course: Wolves’ fixture schedule from Gameweeks 1 to 5 was tricky and they faced some of the division’s meanest defences during that run.

Since then, they have encountered rather more obliging backlines in the form of Aston Villa, Arsenal and Watford.

Still, there has been more than just circumstantial evidence to back up the increased goal threat.

Take the fixture against Newcastle in Gameweek 10: three shots on goal in a 3-5-2 in the opening 45 minutes and then ten attempts after the break when a 3-4-3 was deployed.

There were similar second-half improvements in matches against Southampton and Slovan Bratislava in October, with Santo again turning to a 3-4-3 at the interval.

Sunday’s victory over Aston Villa continued the trend, with the hosts racking up 17 shots at Molineux, taking their total to 51 since the second half kicked off at St. James’ Park a fortnight ago.

Yes, Villa were without key figures such as Tom Heaton (£4.5m), Bjorn Engels (£4.5m) and Jack Grealish (£5.9m).

And yes, Dean Smith’s side have made a habit of conceding a lot of chances this season.

But this was one of Wolves’ best offensive performances of 2019/20, with the narrow scoreline not reflecting their total dominance.

It had looked like being a frustrating afternoon for the increasing number of Fantasy managers who own Raul Jimenez (£7.3m), who had sliced wide on four occasions before latching onto Adama Traore‘s (£5.2m) cut-back on 83 minutes to put Wolves 2-0 up and effectively kill the game.

Diogo Jota‘s (£6.1m) owners didn’t experience such late-in-the-day joy.

The Portuguese striker blanked for the ninth time in ten appearances and collected a yellow card to boot but there were a handful of decent openings for the mid-price FPL forward, who nodded straight at Orjan Nyland (£4.3m) from close range and saw the substitute Villa keeper smother another effort from inside the six-yard box.

The man who replaced Jota late on, Pedro Neto (£5.0m), also fired wide when well-placed in stoppage time.

Santo hailed his side’s display but also bemoaned the profligacy in front of goal, saying:

We played very, very good – very, very well. We dominated the game, especially in the first half. We created a lot of problems for Villa, a lot of chances.

When you produce so many things, you must finish the actions. This what we’re going to analyse now as we broke a lot of times and we had chances, but some we didn’t finish.

Part of the reason why a 3-4-3 has been so successful has been the pairing of Traore with Matt Doherty (£6.0m) down the right flank.

The pair again wreaked havoc down the wing against Villa, with Traore crashing a shot against the bar in the second half and Doherty repeatedly getting into promising positions in the opposition area on the ‘underlap’ – much as he did in 2018/19.

Santo said of Traore’s performance:

He’s playing very well. He’s sticking to his tasks and helping the team. He’s unique, he gives you these moments that only he can produce.

One of the by-products of this move to a 3-4-3 has been the slightly more advanced role that Ruben Neves (£5.3m) is now occupying.

Previously the anchoring midfielder of a 3-5-2, Neves is now playing further forward alongside Joao Moutinho (£5.3m) and the two compatriots combined for Wolves’ opening goal – albeit from a free-kick, rather than from open play.

Santo said ahead of Sunday’s game:

This is a competition in which we have to adapt and find solutions and one of those was to start playing a different way. We need solutions in this situation and one of them is Ruben (more advanced) alongside Joao.

Some perspective has to be provided here, however: Neves and Moutinho still only had one penalty box touch between them this weekend.

Neves, like teammate Romain Saiss (£4.4m) is also now just one booking away from a one-match ban.

The international break now gives some Wolves’ assets a welcome breather following their brutal schedule of the past three months.

Traore will be one of the ones staying at home but – apparently – only because of injury.

The pacy winger is at the centre of a tussle between Mali and Spain on the international stage and received his maiden call-up by the latter this weekend, only to subsequently pull out.

Traore said yesterday:

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the call of the national team because of an injury in the game we played this Sunday against Aston Villa.

I am sorry I cannot be in this call-up, but I will continue working to be in the best possible way for the next list, God willing.

I want to thank for the confidence that the coach has placed in me. I will have medical tests at my club, Wolverhampton, to know the extent of the injury.

It remains to be seen if Jimenez is also spared international duty after the Mexican striker limped from the pitch on Sunday, with an ice pack swiftly applied to his leg on the home bench.

Santo said after full-time:

We have to assess Raul now, the medical department will assess him.

Villa were also blighted by injury on Sunday, with Heaton (who has now pulled out of the England squad), Engels and Grealish failing to recover ahead of kick-off.

Jed Steer‘s (£4.4m) Premier League debut then lasted all of eight minutes before he was substituted with an Achilles injury, while Matt Targett (£4.4m) suffered a blow to the head and was also replaced after complaining of blurred vision.

Smith said after full-time:

Tom Heaton’s been struggling with a calf so I knew he was going to pull out of the game. Jack was always 50/50. Bjorn (hip) came to see me yesterday morning so I always knew we were struggling with that.

In the game, you get Jed Steer going down after three minutes on his first Premier League start with an Achilles injury.

What the international period will do will enable them to be fit for the Newcastle game. I’m not too sure about Jed Steer, I’ll wait for the prognosis on his Achilles injury.

Smith was critical of his players’ first-half performance especially and refused to blame injuries, saying:

It still doesn’t affect your desire to go and win a header, a tackle, a second ball and just help your teammates out and I didn’t think we did that first half.

That’s as bad a first 45 minutes I’ve had since Wigan away last year. Very poor, didn’t start.

It appeared the game was bigger for them than it was for us, we didn’t win any balls, duels, didn’t pass it well. The best thing I got out of the first half was it was only 1-0 at half-time.

Indeed, Ezri Konsa (£4.3m) performed well enough in Engels’ stead and Nyland didn’t do a lot wrong between the sticks.

Instead, there were off-days from some of Villa’s regulars, with the three central midfielders – including John McGinn (£5.8m) – ineffective and hot-and-cold wide players Trezeguet (£5.2m) and Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) very much towards the chilly end of the scale at Molineux.

It was Trezeguet who snatched Villa’s consolation in stoppage time from a corner-kick situation.

After their excellent display against Liverpool, we can probably forgive Villa’s assets for this one below-par performance – although Fantasy interest may be lukewarm until the fixtures really turn favourable in mid-December.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Rui Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Neves (Bennett 85′) Moutinho, Jonny; Traore, Jimenez (Cutrone 90′), Jota (Pedro Neto 83′).

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Steer (Nyland 8′); Guilbert, Konsa, Mings, Targett (Taylor 45′); McGinn, Nakamba (Lansbury 69′), Douglas Luiz; El Ghazi, Wesley, Trezeguet.

    Auba owners... if there is any here. What's your plan with him?

    Hold for the next four "favourable" games or shift?

    I assume most have Vardy and Tammy already so I guess it means what are the options?

    Rashford
    Jimenez
    Firmino

    1. The Man Pastore
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 hours ago

      Probably Jimenez out of those

      1. B.D.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        +1

    2. LordRougeGrog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have Vardy, Jimenez and Aubameyang. Current plan is to captain Aubameyang in GW13 and then he will become Tammy or Rashford, enabling an upgrade from Mendy to TAA.
      I havent owned TAA or Abraham all season and it has been turning out just fine so far, but i want the cash to also to upgrade my bench ready for GW18.

      1. Squeakybum99
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 1 hour ago

        TAA hasn’t done anything to hurt your rank. Tammy has, and will if he keeps up. Not next gw though.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          29 days, 23 hours ago

          That is my plan. I m very happy with my rank right now but at 50 per cent ownership it feels like not owning Tammy is getting too risky.

    3. St. Joseph

      Captain him vs soton. Ditch when he blanks.

  2. Zim0

    Is traore looking a decent option? Wolves are up against Norwich in blank liverpool gameweek and I need one last playing sub. Will he do? I'm also thinking Grealish against Southampton and Tielemans against City. Which one would be best?

  3. Whats the Huth

    GW 18

    When Liverpool blanks

    How many players do you have in the following fixtures.

    Man City vs Leicester
    Spurs vs Chelsea

    I have 8 players in them two fixtures.

    Oh dear

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 hours ago

      KDB, Vardy, Maddison, Chilwell, Mount, Tammy as things stand

      Leicester beat city last year in equivalent fixture... and city are much worse/Leicester much better one year later

      Spurs Chelsea could be an absolute goal fest too like 3-3 or 4-2 etc

      1. Whats the Huth
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 hours ago

        KDB. Sterling. Maddison. Söyüncü. Vardy. Tomori. Mount. Abraham.
        That’s my 8!

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          Nowt wrong with that

          The great thing about GW18 is that it’s the start of that traditional “4 GW’s in 10 days” madness - lots of opportunities for tidying up squads with so many FT’s, and lots of points on offer in a short time window

          Get Christmas right & your OR will fly

        Leicester defeat was away although City struggled to break them down until Vinnys screamer

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Yep it was palace who beat them at home 3-2 in the previous fixture

    2. leo_messi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      6 but no defender so I'm happy to play all of them

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Leicester def will be lost until then but vardy stays, kdb is there and have double chelsea and son. so 5 then, maybe 6 if Pereira stays. but things happen and who knows what happens, son is on for next two, but can be sold before united. I think when gw18 arrives things will have changed and what i now think is not necessarily the best when we get there, my plan i sto have 12 players that are solid for that gameweek, benching my pool assets, but there could be circumstances that changes this approach, City players could be tempting, Auba and Kane could be decent punts this week if you keep a strategy to get them in, One of Kun or Jesus can be injured which then could be an option, etc. If you look at the gw18 there could be some good diffs in there as well

    It is so crazy that a 4mn defender i bought early on would decide my Mane over Robbo for 3rd Liv pick. Now he will be 5mn in matter of days.Cant imagine benching either Lord Lund or Soy for next 5. 3-4-3 here I come

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 hours ago

      That’s why I’m sticking with Sterling for another week.
      See how him and Salah performs.

      Defensive double up with Liverpool is a no go. Like you said, I have Lundstram, Rico, Söyüncü and Tomori. That’s good enough for me

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 hours ago

      Probably the best option. But I have gone 442 and even picking one to drop from
      TAA Robbo Soy Tomori and Lundstram will be difficult most weeks. At least Tomori bench for the coming week is easy.

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 hours ago

        4-4-2 is good but it feels wrong to miss out on 1 of inform midprice strikers between Jim/Vardy/Tammy. This time again when premium forwards are waste for money, the extra funds help you make a direct competition between Mane and Robbo for third spot. And even the most staunch Robbo fans will agree that Mane will outscore Robbo over next 5..Plus ewsy switch to Sterling in Liv blank

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 hours ago

          Easy switch to Sterling?

          You’d not get Mane back then. You’d lose so much value if you sell Mane.

          1. RECKLESS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 1 hour ago

            I got him now so got at 12mn. Maybe will take out salah then who should be back to 12.5mn soon. Plus I have WC remaining sonafter bkank can double up in wham and triple up on Liv.Gw19 perfect wc time

            1. Whats the Huth
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 1 hour ago

              Fair enough. Easy enough to switch to Sterling then.
              You’ll have to hope Sterling doesn’t haul vs Chelsea, otherwise he’ll rise again

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          Robbo has 40 points to Mane’s 43 in the last 6 GW’s... and that’s with keeping just ONE clean sheet

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            You seem to regularly bend stats to back up your points. Anybody can bend stats or look at stats in a way to make them feel better.

            To randomly choose the last 6 games just because it shows them being even makes no sense.

            Why not the last 5 gameweeks where Mane scores 38 and Robertson scores 26?

            Or the fact that Mane is on 83 points, Robertson’s on 57.

            I don’t think it’s helpful you spouting these type of stats at people trying to make an informed decision as it would be silly for them to base their decision on your bent way of look at the statistics.

              Great point bro! Always good to look at overall picture. Also with 9pt lead you will seem them be little leaky again like they were last season after 7point lead. They look more of 3-1/4-2 winners this year than 1-0 types . They will likely keep cleanie vs hapless cpl but after it, it all depends on their and opponents desire

      Ha ha
      Same here mate 😀
      Decided to double up on Salah Mane instead of Taa Robbo.
      I'm very happy & excited about my team now (took early transfers though so fingers crossed about no Injuries in IB)

        1 month, 1 hour ago

        You love those early transfers!Look at your team value. I only early if both players are looking to change in price else it helps to wait. Waiting actually helped me save wc till gw19 now. Example some gw back I would have knee jerked Wilson in over Jim. But I waited for midweek, checked Jim stats and brought him in when all wanted Bou cover.

        1. Amey

          Ha ha
          Yes. I'm kind of emotional guy 😀
          If i see a player doing well love you get on early.
          Took a hit to get Vardy in gw 9, Jimenez in gw 11 & this gw now to get Salah.

          I'm satisfied with the team now so will take a safe approach now. Saving FT this gw is the key now.

              4mn to 5mn ridiculous rise in price for Lundstram by the time break ends. How far did Bissaka rise last season?. I am sure very few have risen 1mn in seasons past like him and Abraham...Doherty/Alonso/Robbo/Kane?

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 55 mins ago

                AWb i think got to 4.7 or so, plenty of players done the same, Jimenez last year, from 5.5 to 7 or so, Vardy and Mahrez that season, Vardy started at 6 and i think ended somewhere around 7.5 Alli, and the list goes on.

                as he is oop and plays for a team that is defensively sound 4.9 is still considerably cheap, if they priced him as defender now it would been 5.5 and as midfielder perhaps around 6, 6.5

              Need to bench one next gameweek,

              Mount Lundstram or Soyuncu

              Cheers

                Mount I guess. Cant bench Lund after how he almost scored 6pointer goal vs Tot. Plus Shef at home. I would personally see Lei vs Bha and Mancity vs Che past record and big chance conceded data over last 3 before deciding

                I was tempted to bench mount. But after watching Liverpool vs City. Have to play all your Chelsea’s attackers

                I’m playing them three. Wouldn’t bench any if I’m honest.

                  Ye ideally I wouldn’t bench any either but in this case I have no choice

                    I’m benching mount but I have robbo in for digne and Maddison in for martial

                I don’t think it’s worth benching Lundstram unless it’s against City/Pool

              Pleased with this Sterling news. He could use a rest. Only shame was that he didn't get dropped completely and go back to Man City. At least this way he will only have one match at most.

                      Sterling dropped from Eng game, altercation with Gomez in training.

                        He was on the verge of striking TAA at the weekend too

                        Showing all the signs of a man on the edge

                          No doubt he throws the monopoly board in the air if he loses

                            He obviously has himself in his FPL team & has gotten totally sick of paying 12.0 for 47 points in the last 11 GW’s which included fixtures such as:

                            BHA, WAT, WOL, AVL, SOU, nor & BOU

                            I’d say he might sell himself for Salah or Mané soon at this rate

                              He’d be a fool not too with those fixtures but he’s probably blinded by his stats and CL performances

                                If only he got to play Atalanta's defence every week in FPL he'd be top of the pops 🙂

                            Gomez politely advised him that he is not actually the 3rd best player in the world despite recent press comments....(allegedly)

                          2 week rest, then angry Raz with a point to prove against team he has a grudge against from last season.

                          He either explodes, or gets the booking/suspension that allows me to bin him.

                          14 points in 5 GW’s has been pretty annoying from KDB

                          Not even honking about a sale though, he was just too cheap at 9.5 & acts as a good hedge for if/when city do click back into gear

                          I think they need a centreback (or two) in January though to save their season

                            Not sure if KDB is worth the extra 2.5m over Pulisic/Maddison/Martial.

                          Morning dzzz, was very tempted to WC but decided to hold off. Have 0m itb

                          Pope Heaton
                          Taa Lundy Rico — Lascelles Tomori
                          Sterling Kdb Martial Mount — Cantwell
                          Tammy Rashford Vardy

                          A: Sterling + Cantwell (price dropping) > Salah + Dendocker (-4)

                          B: Tomori + Rashford >> Robbo + Ings (-4)...and then I can bench Mount as I don’t want to play double attack vs city

                          C: Rashford + Mount >> Maddison + Jimenez (-4)

                          D: Save FT and reassess next gw

                          I still have my wildcard intact and sitting at just under 160k OR. Team is in good shape and I can't see any glaring transfers to make....

                          When is a good time to use the WC??

                            You've done well to retain your WC so far. Don't be in a rush to use it yet - if your team is in good shape then I'd wait until next month. You'll instinctively know when your team needs a full refresh.

                              Thank you, old man! I appreciate your thoughts.

                              Why specifically GW18?

                                Fixture swings. Time to reduce Liverpool, Chelsea, Shef Utd players.
