Scout Notes

Grealish back on the FPL radar after eye-catching return from injury

Aston Villa 2-0 Newcastle United


  • Goals: Conor Hourihane (£5.7m), Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Jack Grealish (£5.9m), Hourihane
  • Bonus: Hourihane x3, Frederic Guilbert (£4.4m) x2, Matt Targett (£4.4m) x1

The final match of Gameweek 13 was the story of Conor Hourihane‘s (£5.7m) dead-ball expertise and Newcastle United’s inability to deal with it.

A non-descript game seemed to have all the hallmarks of a goalless draw in the first half an hour, with the Magpies’ trademark backs-to-the-wall approach to away fixtures initially working well.

There hadn’t really been a chance of note until Conor Hourihane (£5.7m) struck a superb free-kick past Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) after 32 minutes, with the Irish midfielder turning provider soon after when assisting Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) from another set-piece situation.

During the international break, we discussed how Villa had struggled at free-kicks and corners with Hourihane out of the side.

For all his limitations as a central midfielder, Hourihane’s dead-ball deliveries do give Villa an extra attacking dimension and they were ultimately the difference between the two sides on Monday.

He could indeed have had another assist late on, had Wesley (£6.0m) not fired at Dubravka from point-blank range.

Dean Smith said of the Ireland international after full-time:

He wasn’t happy when I left him out of the game against Manchester City away and I understand why, but it’s a squad game and I have decisions to make.

I knew we’d spend an awful lot of time defending and today I knew we’d have a lot more of the ball.

He’s answered me back in the best way. He scored against Norwich, he scored against Brighton and he’s scored again today, so I’m really pleased for him.

The Magpies, meanwhile, have conceded from a set play in each of the last three Gameweeks.

No side allowed more headed chances or efforts from set-piece situations in 2018/19 and a change of regime hasn’t improved much, with Steve Bruce’s outfit again joint-bottom for headed opportunities conceded this season and in the bottom seven for attempts from corners and free-kicks conceded.

Indeed, over the last six Gameweeks, no other club has allowed more of either.

This may well be of interest to owners of Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), with Manchester City up next for Newcastle in Gameweek 14.

Aston Villa assets may not be top of many Fantasy managers’ shopping lists at present, with the Villans third-bottom of our Season Ticker over the next four matches.

There are some appetising matches beyond that, though, and Jack Grealish (£5.9m) and John McGinn (£5.9m) may well be key midfield targets come Gameweek 18.

The returning Grealish, back after a month out, was at the centre of most of Villa’s play on Monday, having more touches than any other player on show.

It was a little ironic that, for all of his creativity and goal threat against the Magpies, his sole attacking return was an assist for a lay-off for Hourihane’s free-kick.

That was his fifth FPL contribution in six starts and the move to a narrow left-wing role from Gameweek 7 has only boosted his appeal.


Grealish is also the most fouled player in the Premier League this season, which, as we’ve seen with Wilfried Zaha (£6.6m) at Crystal Palace, can be a source of Fantasy assists.

Unsurprisingly, it was Grealish who won both of Villa’s free-kicks for the goals.

Smith said of his talismanic midfielder after full-time:

He’s a constant threat and he moves around the pitch really well into positions where people don’t want to come and tackle him.

The opposition get frustrated and two free-kicks against him end up with two goals for us.

Knowing Jack, he’ll be disappointed he hasn’t got on the scoresheet himself.

McGinn, the highest-owned player in the Monday night game, blanked for the fifth time in six Gameweeks but he too was a threat, if only in the last quarter of an hour when the game opened up.

The Scotland international fired narrowly wide from inside the box as the match entered stoppage time before striking the woodwork with the final kick of the game.

The fit-again Tom Heaton (£4.5m) and Villa kept their first clean sheet since Gameweek 5, meanwhile, although one look at the short-term fixture list will deter many from reconsidering the Villans’ defensive options for now.

Newcastle themselves have a tricky double-header against City and Sheffield United coming up and will likely not appeal to FPL bosses until Gameweek 16.

The Magpies had scored six goals in the three previous Gameweeks but five of those strikes were by defenders; not a sustainable source of goals, you’d think.


The occasionally brilliant Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) was by some distance the pick of United’s players, registering more than three times as many take-ons as anyone else at Villa Park and testing Heaton with a curling, 46th-minute effort.

With a continued lack of support around him, however, attacking returns may be irregular at best, despite his eye-catching trickery.

A Federico Fernandez (£4.4m) header and an Andy Carroll (£5.4m) volley – both of which were saved – were as close as the Magpies came to ruining Heaton’s clean sheet but in truth, Villa looked more likely to score a third than concede a consolation.

Bruce cited the absence of skipper Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m) as a mitigating factor, saying:

The first half, in particular, we did not do enough with or without the ball. We felt we were harshly done by with two free-kicks, but the way Conor Hourihane has executed them made it a difficult night.

Conor is very good, I have seen it many times and he has the accuracy and power to score. The second one, our defenders have to defend better, too many stood and watched it.

Jamaal Lascelles is our captain and has been playing very well. Last week the defenders were excellent but you are always going to miss your best players.

    Thought on these dilemmas

    1) Son or Kdb? Don’t have any other Spurs/city cover. Bought kdb at 9.5m if that makes a diff

    2A) Mount + Rashford or
    2B) Pulisic + Jimenez

    1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      1) Tough to call without hindsight. Try not to get too attached to how much value you have tied up in a player if you think another will outscore him mid to long term

      2B

    2. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'm leaning towards Son but you've got a few £ tied into KDB so I'd be skeptical in your situation.

      Pulisic + Jimenez.

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      1) If it was a question of who to bring in at this stage then I'd say Son over KDB but if you have KDB already I wouldn't take him out personally if that makes sense.

      2) B

    4. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Hold KDB!
      2B

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Keep KdB
      Pulisic over Mount clearly.
      Rashford nice differential over Jimenez if you can swing it.

    6. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Son. I know it sounds like captain hindsight but I got him 2 weeks ago on a wildcard. Everyone said it was crazy to drop KDB but it’s been a profitable move already and helped me climb the ranks.

      Son was in crazy form last Xmas too

    7. j16
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'm stuck on the same dilemma as you with regards to KDB. if I want to bring him back in its going to cost me 0.4m extra. I think Son has a higher ceiling. Not sure what to do arrrhh

  2. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years

    GTG?

    Gazza
    TAA Robbo Lundy
    Mane(C) Son Martial Pulisic
    Vardy Tammy Jiminez

    Button Rico Dendo Reid

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Great team - what sways you to Mané over Vardy?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thanks mate! It's a tough call and I am still confused between them & Pulisic!

    2. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Great team, wouldn't change a thing.

      1. Pep Roulette

        Thanks mate!

    3. Bubbles1985
      • 2 Years

      Great team, not tempted to captain Vardy or Tammy?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Thanks mate! Confused between Mane, Vardy & Pulisic for captaincy!

  3. Berbinho's Forehead
    • 9 Years

    Advice for the upcoming GW - whatever you do, don't bench Lundstram.

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      This.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Upcoming gameweeks* I must say!

    2. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I am benching him.

      Playing Trent / Periera / Aurier and Jimenez

      1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Playing TAA, Robbo and Soy. Lund statistically has the worst fixture for an attacker or defender in the top 10 EPL teams for this GW, so it's the one last week I feel I can get away with it. He can score or assist, yes. A haul isn't as likely

        He's been a flat-track bully so far, anyway. GWs 15 to 19 are perfect (except his suspension)

        1. fusen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          This is the correct way benching order 😛

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Would you play Lundy over Soy (also have Jimi against SHU)?

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Benching him this week. Wolves away is a tough one

  4. ffakih
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    James Ward Prowse or Moutinho for the next 5 game weeks?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      JWP

  5. Athletic Nasherbo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Very much considering this...

    TAA, Mount, Sterling, Deulofeu > Pereira, Moura, Pulisic, Kane -8

    1. ResultatFar
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      TAA better than Pereira
      Mount better than Moura
      Sterling better than Pulisic

      Not worth getting Kane in and taking -8 to downgrade three players

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        TAA has not been performing better than Pereira who now is in a top 3 side keeping clean sheets.

        We will compare Mount to Pulisic then considering you’ve decided to simply compare- Puli far superior.

        Sterling performing like a 7m mid so yeah I’ll take my chances with Moura

        Kane will come good.

  6. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Is Burnley back?

    Seems everything changed when Dyche changed the two full-backs and returned to basics

    Or were they flattered by West Ham and Watford?

    Pope has me confused now

    1. PlayPercentage
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Wood and Barnes are back in the frame as a third striker.

  7. BRKFCTrueRover 42
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Think mount to grealish might be in order next week.

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      With those fixtures?

  8. The_Bucc
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Wish I had enough to do Mount to Pulisic before he dropped last night.

    1. KingOllie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      0.2 swing

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        .1 for me...

  9. Jamb0
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Sterling, Mount, Greenwood -> Maddison, Pulisic, Jiminez

    Worth doing for a hit?

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      As long as only a -4 I think that’s worth it

    2. Igzie08
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Sterling might be playing up front according to Pep. Maybe worth watching cl game first

  10. SouthCoastSaint
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Any nervy Martial owners? Thought he was woeful vs Sheff and looking at taking advantage of Pulisic fixtures if he comes through champs league unscathed

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He gets one more week. And then I might move him for Zaha or Milivojevic.

      1. fantasyfog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        for a differential?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          No because look at their fixtures.

          Martial after AVL has TOT mcy
          Zaha meanwhile gets: BOU wat BHA new WHU sou

          1. fantasyfog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            look at form

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Form follows fixtures. Look at Zaha's last 5 games. MCI ars LEI che LIV.

              He scored 10 points vs Arsenal mind.

              Part of being a really good FPL manager is getting players in BEFORE they haul. Sometimes it won't work out, but when it does, you can really gain ranks. As long as you're not neglecting essential players, this is the way to get a really good score.

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                he scored 5 pts vs Ars.

                13 pts in total vs Villa/Wolves/Nor/wham

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Ah was looking at Milivojevic.

                  But yeah that doesn't bode well I guess. We will see. I'm not set on it. Ideally Martial comes to life and scores big vs Villa and does enough to prove he should stay.

                  But CPL are the differential team to consider. Zaha and Mili are interesting and hey, we need some differentials because by god every single team seems to have the same like 9 players.

                • 4 Years

                yes getting on bandwagon before they happen is the way to go

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Yeah i got in lacazette BEFORE the shampton match and it paid off. But don't know if Zaha and palace can be trusted. With arsenal, they suck defensively but they'll get 1 or 2 goals.

                He scored 5 pts vs Arsenal. Mili scored 10 vs Ars and Nor.

            Pulisic? Madders?

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              I will have Pulisic this week. Ignoring Maddison for the time being. His heat map and shooting outside the box are not appealing. He's easily the worst out of the midfield trio - Martial, Pulisic, Maddison imo.

              1. Twitter: @Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 month, 25 days ago

                I should explain the -12, Camzy

                My entire bench got injured/out-of-favour in one GW, so I needed some spring cleaning without a wildcard. Janmaat, Connolly and Nakamba became Pulisic, Greenwood and Williams... Allowing Soy or Lund (or Madders sometimes) to be the first sub in these hectic winter times, and at least a point or two from the two other subs... While enabling me to afford Pulisic for Nakamba after going Sterling to Son. So this was more of a necessity than those my more luxurious hits 😀

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  I think it's unnecessary. A lot of those transfers you made don't impact your starting XI.

                  Sterling > Son + Nakamba > Willian (-4)

                  Would have done just fine. And stopped you losing 8 points on bench players who don't affect your starting players and will be benched anyway. Also gives you Willian over Pulisic which could be an interesting differential.

            Problem is Zaha plays for a team that has 11 goals in 13 weeks.

    2. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Definitely a dilemma if you don't own both. I'd say keep for Villa at home

  11. Igzie08

    Anyone considering double blades defence?
    Thinking of Pope -> Henderson next week

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I am likely going Guaita

    2. Wolves Ay We

      Yep

    2FT, 3.0 ITB, Thinking the following moves:

    Mings and Mount --> Taylor and Son

    How does that look? Would give me this:

    Pope
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    Mane Maddison KDB Son
    Jimenez Vardy Abraham

    Button Taylor Rico Cantwell

    1. Jamb0
      • 2 Years

      Looks good

    2. fantasyfog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      yeah looks good

    3. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      The problem I have with this, is that 90% of the teams in the top 500K are exactly the same (as is mine).

      The result? 15 points above average and a drop in OR of 600 spots (am 250K OR).....

  13. The_Bucc
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Pope
    TAA, Soy, Tomori
    Sterling, Mane, Maddison, Mount
    Vardy, Jimenez, Tammy

    (Lund, Montoya, Dendocker)

    Save FT?

    1. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah, nothing urgent there

    Can Pulisic play three games in a week if he has a niggling hip injury?
    Best to wait and see how Chelsea line up for their CL fixture.

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      I did it before previous IB. Who knows, but should be rotation incoming at Chelsea now the majority of their mids are fit.

    2FT, thinking the classic Sterling -> Son and bank the cash?

      Tempted to WC even though i have 2ft's and 0m itb. In hindsight, wish i had pulled the trigger on Sat to save some funds

      Current team:
      Pope -- HEATON
      Taa Lundy Tomori -- Rico LASCELLES
      Kdb STERLING MARTIAL MOUNT -- Cantwell
      Vardy Tammy RASHFORD

      Potential WC team:
      Pope -- BUTTON
      Taa Lundy Tomori -- Rico MONTOYA
      Kdb MANE SON PULISIC -- Cantwell
      Vardy Tammy INGS

      1. ElliotJHP

        I reckon Perez might have turned the corner looking at his stats the last 4 weeks.

        Maybe he will now be the bandwagon he was pre season?

        Penalty touches=2nd
        Goals=2nd
        Big C=1st
        SoT=3rd
        Min/chance better than Martial, Mane, pulisic,Sterling and KdB

          You just need lots of patience with him.

          It's good to see he's now becoming an option, so many of us tipped him pre-season.

          I don't like how Rodgers treats his wingers

          High chance of anything from 1 point to 24 points from Perez, and it's quite difficult to know what you'll get and/or when, so he really tests the patience when 90-minute assets are firing

        How risky in a scale of 0 to 10 is a move from abraham to Rashford in gw 15?

        3. Paneorder

              Long term maybe yes but if his price rises around 9 then it's too much

            Against Spurs and City?

            And at a higher price?

            What's happening? I'm genuinely confused

              My bad, after those games.
              But I guess it's too risky and have value on tammy as well

          On a -4 after doing Aguero, Hayden, Mount -> Mousset, Son, Pulisic. How’s the team looking?

          Pope
          TAA Lund Soy
          Mane KDB Son Pulisic Maddison
          Vardy (c) Abraham

          Button Mousset Janmaat Rico (0ft 1.5m itb)

          Can’t see many ways to use the money itb for future moves - mid-priced/low premium options performing too well. Will probably just look at getting in Henderson and Tomori

              Wildcard burning a hole in my pocket. Don't like the idea of WC in 19 purely as it's bloody Xmas and don't want to be stuck on my phone tinkering.

              Go for it or not worth it for 5 players?

                Zaha apart you are moving to a very template team. How's your rank? Personally I would wait a week or two.

                  Fair point on template. I'm hovering around 200k and feel I need a freshen up.

                  Maybe a hit this week will do the trick - or just a Sterling > Son/Salah and reassess

                    going template will be my strategy over xmass. save 2-3 puns ofcourse.

                    but dont be afraid of template, if they're generating, THEY'RE GENERATING.

                    People will be so pissed over December and will force moves, or have inadequate benches, hence they'll drop.

                    Dont think of rises in December, just think of not dropping, because that's when people drop points most.

                    Just had a look at your team - bad luck with Tarko.
                    I'd probably change Sterling to Son or Pulisic and reassess. The following week we have 2 full programmes in one week. After that there might be some clarity.

                      Mount coming on to block those points, plus Sterling(c) VAR.... City v Chelsea one of my least favourite games in recent memory!

                  Think if I get son it’ll be for kdb, sterling tends to score higher playing with Jesus
