Southampton’s ongoing full-back problems bode well for FPL wingers

Southampton 1-2 Everton

Goals: Danny Ings (£6.0m) | Tom Davies (£5.3m), Richarlison (£7.9m)

Assists: Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) | Mason Holgate (£4.4m), Djibril Sidibé (£5.3m)

Bonus Points: Davies x3, Richarlison x3, Holgate x1, Ings x1

Southampton’s problems at full-back continue to boost the attacking potential of their opponents.

This problem appears to be especially causing the Saints problems at home, where they are yet to win a league match since

After six outings at St Mary’s this season, Southampton have drawn once and lost the other five, scoring five goals and conceding 21.

Obviously, that goals conceded column is skewed by the nine they shipped to Leicester but this was yet another encounter where Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men were torn to pieces in wide areas due to questionable tactical decisions.

Hasenhüttl still hasn’t solved his full-back problems this season

The Gameweek 6 hosting of Bournemouth saw Josh King (£6.3m) and Diego Rico (£4.3m) expose left-footed centre-back Kevin Danso (£4.3m) when he was deployed at right-back.

When Chelsea came to Hampshire in Gameweek 8, four different wide players emerged with an assist to their name, specifically Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.8m), Willian (£7.1m), Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) and Christian Pulisic (£7.4m).

Of course, we all remember what Southampton’s defence did for Leicester in Gameweek 10, Ben Chilwell (£5.7m) quadrupling his total of attacking returns for the season in one 90-minute session and Harvey Barnes (£5.9m) spent the whole evening unmarked.

Well, it was exactly the same story on Saturday afternoon as yet another one of Hasenhüttl’s failed experiments at full-back fell flat on its face.

Cédric Soares was deployed out of position before being hauled off at half-time

This time, he played right-footed Cédric Soares (£4.8m) at left wing-back in a 3-4-2-1 system and stationed attacking midfield Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) as the right wing-back.

That allowed Richarlison (£7.9m) and Theo Walcott (£6.2m) complete freedom to terrorise Southampton’s back-three, who were once again horrendously exposed by incapable and out-of-position wing-backs.

While it was Southampton’s right that had the biggest problems in the 9-0 defeat to Leicester, it was their left, staffed by Cédric, that was most susceptible in Gameweek 12.

That saw Walcott get the most joy, getting past the wing-back too easily and further exposing Jannik Vestergaard‘s (£5.0m) distinct lack of pace.

Thankfully for Southampton, Everton have hardly been in the most clinical form in front of goal this season, so in the end, they actually only exploited the home side’s defensive issues once, Tom Davies‘ (£5.3m) opening goal coming from a corner.

Southampton’s chances of a clean sheet in any of their upcoming home matches seem very low

However, Fantasy managers should probably keep an eye on full-backs or wingers who face Southampton in the coming weeks, especially at home where their problems in wide areas are more pronounced.

Over the next six Gameweeks, the Saints host Watford, Norwich and West Ham, which could see Daryl Janmaat (£4.3m), Jose Holebas (£4.7m), Onel Hernández (£5.3m), Emi Buendía (£6.0m), Todd Cantwell (£4.7m), Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) or Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) enjoy their visits to St. Mary’s.

Furthermore, if those assets can provide decent delivery in those matches then the likes of Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m), Teemu Pukki (£6.7m) and Sébastien Haller (£7.3m) should be present with plenty of decent chances.

Watford forward Deulofeu is perhaps the strongest consider from that bunch. After a 12-point haul at Norwich in Gameweek 12, he went some way to reminding Fantasy managers that his speciality appears to be double-figure hauls away to relegation-threatened clubs. After all, a large proportion of his 2018/19 points came in large away wins at Huddersfield and Cardiff.

Sofiane Boufal did make a difference for Southampton after coming on

It must be said that Hasenhüttl did manage to alleviate some pressure on his defence by replacing Cédric with attacking midfielder Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) at half-time.

He was officially stationed in a central location, with Moussa Djenepo (£5.2m) tasked with providing width on the left.

Boufal had an immediate impact on the Saints, his powerful shot from range representing their first effort on goal in the whole match.

It was the Moroccan international who provided the assist for Southampton’s equaliser too.

Following a corner, he took advantage of Morgan Schneiderlin (£4.4m) having to drop into left-back, pushing past him and getting around the back to square the ball for Danny Ings (£6.0m), who netted a simple tap-in.

“The first half was horrible. No-one wanted the ball any more. You could feel the lack of self-confidence. It took us until the second half to get positive body language. The second half was OK. We went very offensive and it gave us a little more quality but you expose the defence and the goal killed us. It is not a nice situation. I can guarantee the players try to fight to win games. At the moment we are not good enough.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Danny Ings scored a much-needed goal for Southampton against Everton

That was Ings’ first goal since the Gameweek 9 trip to Wolves, although his two goals in the last four Gameweeks is the joint-highest of any striker priced at £6.0m or below. That said, while Sheffield United’s Lys Mousset (£5.0m) is also on two goals, he has three assists to Ings’ zero.

Despite getting Everton on the back-foot for the first time, Hasenhüttl’s tactical changes still did not plug the gaps at full-back.

Cédric’s departure at half-time ensured that Southampton spent the entirety of the second period without a recognised full-back on the pitch.

It should be no surprise then that Everton’s winning goal was a direct result of this problem.

Richarlison exposed Southampton’s problems at full-back in Gameweek 12

Right-back Djibril Sidibé (£5.3m), whose four consecutive starts suggest he has now claimed the starting berth from Seamus Coleman (£5.4m), powered up his side of the pitch and his looping cross to the far-post was poked in by an unmarked Richarlison.

Interest in Everton assets had decreased in recent weeks but they probably only have one more week of viability for Fantasy managers.

They host Norwich in Gameweek 13 which could be high-scoring one for options such as Richarlison, although he is probably the only attacking player who is completely nailed-on to start.

Sigurdsson was back in the Everton team at number 10, Alex Iwobi dropping to the bench

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) was back in the team in Gameweek 12 but it was just his third start in the last five Gameweeks. Meanwhile, Alex Iwobi (£5.7m) was benched at Southampton and while Walcott has started each of the last four, in none of those has he completed 90 minutes.

However, once a Goodison Park meeting with the Canaries is out of the way, Everton embark on a truly horrendous fixture schedule.

Between Gameweeks 14 and 18 they face Leicester (away), Liverpool (away), Chelsea (home), Manchester United (away) and Arsenal (home).

Southampton XI (3-4-2-1): McCarthy; Vestergaard, J Stephens, Bednarek; Cédric (Boufal 46′), Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Obafemi 90+1′); Djenepo, Redmond (Adams 81′); Ings.

Everton XI (4-2-3-1): Pickford; Digne, Holgate, Mina, Sidibé; Schneiderlin, T Davies; Richarlison (Keane 89′), Sigurdsson, Walcott (Iwobi 74′); Tosun (Calvert-Lewin 74′).

    Any reason why Salah isn't flagged yet?

    1. PlumaPiedra

      Because it's not that important?

            Well in may ways FPL isn't important in the scheme of things, but wondered if there was a reason why say Robbo was flagged but not Salah.

            1. FOO FIGHTER
                2 months, 11 days ago

                Because Scotland sent Robbo home.

        • FOO FIGHTER
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Maybe because the reports are there for Egypt to send him home.

                Less than average i meant.
                Don't like having 2 dead attackers. If you had Robbo instead of Rico than it was ok to go 442
                So ....

        • FOO FIGHTER

            Trying to figure out what to do with Rico. He is a really boring asset to own.

              My team value sitting at 104.4m. Sale value 102.2m.

              Think I am in good shape but there is only so much you can do with team structure.

              You cannot go with a team full of high owned players unless you are sitting in the top 10.

              (4.0 Cantwell Rico Tomori)
              1ft & 1.6m

              A) KDB & Connolly ➡️ Maddison & Jimenez
              B) KDB & Rico ➡️ Maddison & Robbo
              C) KDB & Tomori ➡️ Martial & Robbo
              B) KDB & Connolly ➡️ Martial & Jimenez
              C) KDB & Cantwell ➡️ Maddison & Martial

              A, B & C leave me with enough money to do Mount to Pulisic in GW14 which is a move I'm very keen on making.

              Could also sell Sterling over KDB and then money won't be a problem but I do like his explosiveness and it's easy to move between him, Salah or any other premium player.

              Thoughts?

              How many more times do y'all think Otamendi will fall?

              Already lost 0.2m on him and I'm forced to hold him for atleast 2 more weeks with other transfers in plan.

              I know points over Pounds, but would you sell him for a -4 because I think he has the potential to fall to 4.8m.

              Thoughts?

                  Get rid for free. You are doomed if owning any City hell hole rotation defence 🙂

                  Unless you are bringing in TAA or Robbo for Ota -4 then it ain't worth it.

                        Hmm, riski not keeping KDB? So much value in him, had him since GW1. Maybe Sterling -> Mane?

                    How this looks?

                    A) Sterling and Wickham out
                    Denconker and Auba on for free
                    (So basically switching Sterling to Auba)
                    That also allow me to do Mount to Maddison.

                        Mount to Maddison would be a hit.

                    I think maybe all the managers that are transferring out Sterling for Salah didn't watch the game... or not closely? If they replay that game, Sterling comes out with a goal and an assist... against any other team Sterling is still the most likely to score on a team that is likely to score a lot. I feel the instinct to sell him right now, to bring in LEI and LIV assets... but I think it could seriously burn me.

                      Look at sterling's form, it stinks

                        It doesn't really, his FPL returns aren't great lately however.

                          this is exactly my point, everyone here is just looking at trailing metrics. missing that his on field form actually looks pretty exciting...

                            I got his early hauls then got rid at the right time when I saw (I go to City) he was too isolated on the left and not getting in the threatening positions as much. When Mendy plays it definitely helps as that provides natural width but I think Pep has told him to come in more now regardless anyway as he is wasted out there, crossing isn't his game. So short version, he is an asset worth having again despite recent blanks. I haven't got him, but he isn't a bad choice at all for me.

                      Sterling will score but will he score more than Salah/Mane over the next 5?

                        he could easily outscore them...

                    How are you going to deal with GW18 blank for Liverpool?

                    Is it a bit short termist to have 3 Liverpool players in our teams when we will need to transfer them out again by GW18?

                          No one is going to transfer all 3 out. People who have 3 for the gws before will score more points over the piece including an 8 player gw if needs be.

                                Yes because shifting them out and bringing them back following week makes no sense unless you want to take hits.

                                  Free hit due to other fixtures?

                                      Depends who you going to bring in for a free hit?

                                      I already have triple LEI, double CHE after Mount has moved on and double double SHU. Form teams.

                                      I am just going to roll with benching triple Pool. All of my bench will be starters.

                              Could be potential for a free hit that week considering the fixtures for the top 6?

                              MCI vs LEI
                              EVE vs ARS

                                There is no easy fixtures. No teams I would like to load up on. Take the probable low average, and move on.

                                Already have 2, getting 3rd depends on whether cash is available by next week or not.

                              Should I take a hit to bring in Laca for Rashford ? Already own Martial.Dont feel too confident fielding two United attackers vs Sheffield ?

                                Daft idea just to play against one team. I would dump laca however.

                              Not sure why people are dumping Sterling. Looked good against Liverpool but very few do well at Anfield. Rested during IB. City have a point to prove now. Baffles me.

                                Budget thing to accommodate other form players especially if going for the Pool full back double up.

                                  I've got Salah, Sterling, Vardy and both FBs for Liverpool. I hope they keep selling him though, when he hauls my OR will benefit
