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.

      none with upcoming fix after New but Grealish if you have to

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        None would of been suffice 🙂

        1. davies
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          It’s for one week only

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            So how much to spend?

            1. davies
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              5.8, Grealish will fall before deadline so can afford him

              1. Stoichkov#8
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 3 days ago

                not ideal imo..maybe a hit is worth it?

                1. davies
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 3 days ago

                  I have 2FT so can afford Aguero/CHO > Mousset/Salah but I fancy captaining Aguero this week so willing to punt on Grealish

  8. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which of these moves, if any would you make?

    A KDB to Salah
    B Diop to Robertson
    C Mount to Maddison or Pulisic
    D Cantwell to Maddison and Diop to Janmaat ( need to make latter move to fund so -4)
    E Carry transfer

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    Mané KDB Martial Mount
    Vardy Jiménez Abraham

    McGovern Rico Cantwell Diop

    1. Batchain
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Diop to Robertson. I think at this point Robertson is someone you buy now for the rest of the season.

  9. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Unsure what to do with my FT. Does Sterling and Mount to Son and Martial seem sensible?

    Leno
    TAA Lund Soy
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount
    Vardy Jiminez Tammy

    Button Rico Cantwell Kelly

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      make a plan do triple Lei soon but if you dont want than yes, nice moves

  10. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    On second thought, Salah or Mane ?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Always Salah

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        this

    2. YEAH PITCH!

  11. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Thoughts on Mount guys?

    free up cash to get Pulisic or Martial or just hold firm ?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      hold. great value and next games it could be his turn for points

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Yeah he is still a very good option , I only swapped him for Pulisic as a differential.

  12. GloryManUnited
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Pope
    Van Dijk/Soy/Lund/Tomori
    Madd/KDB/Mane/Martial
    Auba/Vardy

    Button/Connolly/CHO/Diop

    Giving Auba the (C) for one last chance this week.

    Thinking Auba/CHO>>Firmino/Pulisic are next. Thoughts?

  13. davies
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Ayew or Mousset as 3rd striker?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Mousset, but not sure how nailed he is.

  14. Jimbo-Jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Worth ditching Sterling to get Vardy? I have 2ft.

    Would need a change in formation as want to keep Abraham and Jimenez, so I’d move to 433/343.

    Would you
    A: spend -4 to downgrade one of Mount/VVD to bench fodder, and give me 9m for a starting mid,
    B: Get a 7.1mid (and bench one of Mount/VVD each week...)
    C: get a cheap benchable mid to have money itb?

    What a weekend! So many ups, so many downs. James could have had so many more points, Citeh were legitimately unlucky as the Wilson Scenario leapt into full effect! I've yet to confirm but I believe I lost my FFS HU by 1 solitary point (I won one by 1 a while back, so...), but I was on top of that until the Mané goal.

    I will not be ditching Sterling or KdB until such time as it's clear Citeh are in actual freefall. Even losing a few bits of value from any earlier sell-off is manageable, and given that they're worth a f**k tonne of wedge I can still go grab the aforementioned Mané, or Salah or Pulišić AND upgrade Maupay to some premium option like Rashford.

    But for now, the Citzens remain!

  16. Gregg Wallace

    For those going with Salah & Mané, who do you think gets the armband for you in the next 5 weeks?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Salah every time , but I'm going Aubameyang 13,15,16 and Salah 14,17.

      1. Gregg Wallace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        You still keeping the faith in Aubameyang? interesting. How do you manage to afford having all three?
        I usually stick the captain on whoever I think will be highest scorer come the end of the season, which I thought would be Sterling but thinking more Mané, he looks up for it this year.

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Sorry I only have Salah and Aubameyang, but I think Salah will outscore Mane. Sterling will start firing again soon then I will ship Aubameyang for the funds to bring him in.

          1. Gregg Wallace
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 3 days ago

            I see, I agree it's only a matter of time before Sterling starts banging them in again and I'll get him back in GW18 but I'm prepared to go without for now.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            1 month, 3 days ago

            I've said so before and will say it again, it doesn't matter how good Arsenal's fixtures are. Their team is a shambles. I can't see them beating Southampton even on current form. They've rebounded decently since the Leicester walloping.

            1. Dynamic Duos
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 3 days ago

              He repaid my faith in gwk 11 as (c) and I confident he will do it again.

    2. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Pick one and stick. Mane for me.

      1. Gregg Wallace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Thanks, Permacap Mané is looking like a solid option on his current form

    3. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Vardy mostly 😉

      1. Gregg Wallace
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Good option and 24 from 1, I should start considering him more

    quick one on the city full backs....

    Right hand side is? :
    Walker / Cancelo

    Left hand side is? :
    Angelino / Mendy

    Im in a draft league and going to bring in angelino as I have Mendy already... this should negate rotation issues while Zinchenko is out correct ?

    If you think this season is hard imagine next season where most of players that we own now will be muuch more expensive.
    For example Tammy will be 9.5-10, Pulisic and Mount about 7-8mil, Madders 8.5-9 etc...

      happens every year...

        true...just enjoy all that cheap picks this season and have fun 😉

    Howdy team,

    Considering the following. Think I know what the consensus will be but will ask anyway...

    A) Mount > Pulisic

    B) Cantwell > Tielemans

    Current midfield is Mané, Salah, Mount, Cantwell, Dendonk

    1. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      B.

    Money is no issue - who would you rather have Maddison (9,9,8,2,7,0) or sterling (2,1,11,5,2,7)?

    1. @fpl_phenom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Maddison on current form

    2. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Latter.

    3. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      I just did Sterling to Madders so...

    4. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Sterling if both were the same price.

    5. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Sterling

  21. jblakes
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Would ppl do these changes?
    Montoya and sterling to
    Robbo and son?

    Pope woodman
    Montoya TAA Chilwell Soy lund
    Mane sterling KDB Mcginn mount
    Abraham Vardy greenwood.

  22. Rinseboy
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    is Mount to Martial worth a -4 this week?
    Or could easily play Soy Lund or Rico over him?

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Rico Lunds Robbo
    Mane KDB Maddison Mount Cantwell
    Vardy Tammy Jimi

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      tempting but Mount is so good value...worth keeping him esp with thosefix after City

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

      I would just play Mount- could do well v that City defence and Sheffield United not an easy game for Man United

    3. Rinseboy
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      cheers boys. I think it cause just watched MOTD2 and Man utd looked exciting! but agree Sheffield away for utd doesnt look a great fixture this week.

    4. B.D.

    I see Pulisic hip injury means out of USA team

    1. Stoichkov#8

      international injury?

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      That is a good thing , he will get 2 weeks rest. It isn't a major injury.

  24. @fpl_phenom
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Gazzinga / Button

    TAA Soyuncu Tomori Lundstram Rico

    Mane KDB Mount Maddison Elneny

    Aguero Vardy Abraham

    2 Free transfers ... £0.1M ITB

    Any suggestions managers?

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Nice team. Question is how much you trust Agyero and do you have a plan for triple Pool?
      You can burn FT by making Elneny to Donkey/Hayden

      1. @fpl_phenom
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Cheers mate

        im wary of selling Aguero before Chelsea at home but iv held him for so long and not really been rewarded....

        I can get in Salah and Jiminez for Aguero and KDB if I want to give up on city attack, but it seems very risky...

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          Liv has a bit tricky fix this GW imo so hold City this GW maybe but you never know..
          Selling Aguero is on the cards anyway and Jim standout option. He plays Bou so who you think has better chance to score in your opinion?

  25. Das Boot

    1 month, 3 days ago

    I'm looking for a cheap forward and Danny Ings is shouting out at me, thoughts anyone?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Yeah good fixtures, may be worth a punt

      1. Das Boot
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        Cheers Dynamic. Thinking of going mainly with Vardy and Abraham up front but just need a cheapie to allow me to bring in TAA and Robertson.

    2. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Great punt but I dont trust Sou

      1. Das Boot
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        4 goals in 5and a half games and against some of the better teams in the league, Spurs Chelsea, Leicester, Man City and Everton. The fixtures don't really get much tougher than that.

        1. Stoichkov#8
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 3 days ago

          true but last game he had just 1 shoot if I remember correctly. will those returns stop or is he clinical like Vardy ? 🙂

    3. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Good pick. But leave transfer as late as possible, he can injure himself getting out of the bath. 🙂

      1. Das Boot
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        hahaha

    Opinions here?

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

    A: Sterling >> Mane (exact funds)
    B: Sterling + Cantwell >> Salah + Dendocker (-4)...prefer Salah (c) over Mane and avoid 0.1m cantwell drop
    C: Tomori + Rashford >> Robbo + Ings (-4)
    D: Save FT.

  27. Moves like Dejagah
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Thoughts on whether I should be wildcarding?

    Pope, Button

    Lundstram, Soyuncu, Janmaat, Guilbert, Kelly

    Salah, Mount, KDB, Sterling, Dendoncker

    Wilson, Abraham, Jimenez

    1. Stoichkov#8
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 3 days ago

      Raz, Wilson > Madders/Martial, Vardy (even for -4) possible?

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        * would be nice if that also would give you some cash to get TAA/Robbo next GW

      2. Moves like Dejagah
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 3 days ago

        It is possible for a -4 and that’s maybe what I should do. I’m really tempted by TAA and Robbo though and that would require the wildcard really.

    2. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Just Wilson to Vardy

  28. Nightf0x
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 3 days ago

    Which?

    A) gw13, Lowton wilson -4 to robo ings (or) baldock jimy
    gw14, mount to puli
    Gw15, son to madison

    B) gw13, mount Wilson -4 to richar jimy/ings
    Gw14, richar to puli
    Gw15, son lowton -4 to madison robo

    How’s this as a Liverpool triple up

    Robertson, Mane & Firmino

    (Firmino being my main differential)

    Any ideas would be welcomed
