Jimenez points run ends as Wolves extend unbeaten streak with West Ham win

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 West Ham United

Leander Dendoncker celebrates his goal
  • Goals: Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m), Patrick Cutrone (£5.6m)
  • Assists: Joao Moutinho (£5.3m), Pedro Neto (£5.0m)
  • Bonus: Dendoncker x3, Moutinho x2, Conor Coady (£5.0m) x1

Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) was the most-owned Wolves player to deliver a return at Molineux on Wednesday night as Raul Jimenez (£7.7m) failed to make it five consecutive Gameweeks with an attacking return.

The 22.5%-owned Mexican may have blanked against a leaky West Ham outfit but it was not for a lack of trying, with Jimenez topping the shot charts in the Gameweek 15 clash.

Dendoncker – still in 9.4% of squads despite being part of Wolves’ back three in the absence of Willy Boly (£4.8m) – poked home in the 24th minute directly from a Joao Moutinho (£5.3m) corner. The Portuguese midfield maestro has three assists and a goal in the past five Gameweeks.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s troops are now unbeaten in ten Premier League matches – perhaps not the most significant stat in Fantasy terms but it does illustrate Wolves’ excellent form following a ropey start to the season. On the other hand, Wednesday night’s shut-out was the club’s first since Gameweek 8.

Nuno, who gave his players Thursday off following their victory, was pleased with his side’s effort in defence. The Wolves boss said:

It was a good game, a good performance, I think we played very well. We had to be organised and manage the game.

West Ham are a very good team but we got a clean sheet and I’m very happy for that. I’m giving them a day off after 21 days without a day off.

However, Nuno did feel that his side might have made better use of counter-attacking situations, adding:

We had chances, clear breaks and counter-attacks that we should define better, clear chances.

Jimenez was probably the guiltiest party in that regard. The forward’s loose touch after a rapid Adama Traore (£5.2m) break saw the Mexico star shoot straight at David Martin (£4.0m) in the 73rd minute.

Jimenez sees an effort saved by Martin

West Ham’s current no. 1 made five saves against Wolves, putting him joint-third for that particular statistic among goalkeepers across Gameweek 18.

Martin kept the score at 1-0 in the first half with a good stop from Diogo Jota’s (£6.1m) drive, while he also prevented Jonny (£5.4m) scoring from close range on 54 minutes after the defender was put through by Jimenez.

West Ham’s only big chance of the game fell to Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) after he was set free by Pablo Fornals (£6.0m). The Scot’s control let him down, however, as Rui Patricio (£5.2m) claimed the ball in a collision that ended the Hammers man’s involvement in the tie.

On his opportunity, Snodgrass explained:

For my chance I took a good first touch, the second I tried to go on my left and the keeper’s just come out and done well. I’m disappointed because it’s a chance I should have taken, and have done most of my career. 

We’ll just go back to the drawing board and take the positives from the game because I thought there were some good performances and on another day I take that chance to make it 1-1, so I’m gutted.

Wolves ended the contest late on as Jimenez’s 84th-minute replacement Patrick Cutrone (£5.6m) slotted home a pass from fellow substitute Pedro Neto (£5.0m).

West Ham have now conceded 62 chances from set plays this season, fifth-bottom in the league. On that problem and his side’s performance, Manuel Pellegrini said:

I think that, for me, the big mistake we made was conceding from the set piece again. It was a very tight game in the first 45 minutes. We dominated most part of the second half.

We had one option [chance] to draw the game, but we didn’t take that option and finally they counter attacked and found the space for the second goal.

Before this game, we have conceded too many. Newcastle scored three from set pieces, Crystal Palace two, Bournemouth by set pieces, it’s at least eight or ten goals.

Questioned on why the impressive Michail Antonio (£6.9m) was not part of the matchday squad, Pellegrini stated:

It was a risk for him to play this game. He is not able to play and I hope he will be recovered for Monday.

The Irons boss added on Snodgrass:

I think [he will be fit for Gameweek 16]. We will see tomorrow, he had a big kick to his chin but hopefully he will be OK.

Snodgrass leaves the field after his clash with Patricio

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Saiss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Doherty; Jota (Neto 72′), Jimenez (Cutrone 84′), Traore (Bennett 89′).

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Martin; Cresswell, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Fredericks; Rice, Noble (Holland 71′); Fornals, F. Anderson, Snodgrass (Yarmolenko 62′); Haller (Ajeti 80′).

      Did A last week.

      1. TJ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        hmm 15 points for both last GW.
        I think A has higher ceiling

  4. Double Treble

    Downgrade Robertson to?

    A. Dunk
    B. Targett
    C. Evans
    D. Aurier

    Have TAA, Soy, Lunny, and Rico

    Dont want Kelly

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Aurier

  5. Royal5
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Worth holding Laca for West Ham? Missed last night game. Plan was Martial/Laca out.

    1. AWOL-Ekotto
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I am ditching him even though he has done me good. Didn’t watch last nights game either. But he seems to only deliver at home. And there are too many great strikers to choose from. Also Arsenal seems very bad

      1. Royal5
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Agreed.

    2. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      One word
      Arsenal
      They go and lose at West Ham. Arsenal have lost their balls (not that balls were ever their strong point)

      1. Royal5
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        They do look lost.

  6. Blue&White85
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Best option this week?

    A) Save FT
    B) Tomori to Aurier
    C) Button to Martin
    D) Mount to Tielemans
    E) Other

    Pope
    TAA VVD Lundstram Soyuncu
    Mane Sterling Mount Zaha
    Vardy Abraham

    Subs Tomori, Dendoncker Greenwood

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Greenwood to Ings

      1. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Can’t afford that, meant to say I only have 0.4 ITB though I have a plan to get Greenwood out in 18/19.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      save and use two transfers to remove Greenwood and go 343 or 433 ... no point having Greenwood on your bench when you could have a nailed player for the same price or cheaper

      1. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah, basically planning to do that in 18 or 19. Unless there’s injuries I don’t plan on using a transfer in 17.

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 21 days ago

      What’s your thinking with D? If I didn’t already have Mount, I’d be more tempted by the opposite move! Benching Tielemans this week

      1. Blue&White85
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        It would be just a 2 week punt covering weeks 16/17 then he’d go in week 18. It’s probably my least favoured of the options.

  7. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    What to do here with 1ft and 1.6m itb

    Heaton -- Pope
    Taa Lundy Tomori -- Rico (LIV) Lascelles (injured)
    Mane Kdb Pulisic Mount -- Cantwell
    Rashford Vardy Ings

    Some options...
    A: Lascelles > Kelly..esp if Tomori doesn’t play
    B: Pulisic > Alli / Maddison
    C: Mount >> Maddison
    D: Tomori + Mount >> Kelly + Alli (-4)?
    E: Mount/Rashford >> Alli/Tammy (-4)?

    1. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Lascelles to Aurier would be my move.

    2. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Tomori to Söyüncü and stick

    3. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Or to Aurier

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      your bench is 3 of these 4 - Tomori (dropped) Rico (LIV) Lascelles (injured) & Cantwell ... and TAA & Lund are both one a yellow card away from suspension

      I think Lascalles is your prime issue

  8. Ynwalfc
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    I can’t help but play Mount over Lundstram.Lundstram has blanked for four weeks and Mount could be coming back into form.Anyone thinking similar?

    Morning all, need some help on what to do with this team after a poor GW. Only just brought zaha and jimi so will keep for now

    what about connolly > moussett or dunk/willem > evans?

    I think dunk and willem are ticking along well and good differential and cheap options so leaning towards the mousset transfer.

      Yes pretty much.

      Chelsea not keeping clean sheets and Rudiger should be back in the next game or two.

    2. Usyismail

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I don't start him every week. Tends to do okay when I do though so he's staying for a while at least.

  25. Rash

    Bit of an oversight by me that sheffield united are much better away from home. The double defence did not go well.

    Asked yesterday,asking again today.

    Captaining deadbeat Kane is madness?

      I would sell Kane.

      I really wouldn't. Of course he's a superb player but at the moment he's spending far too much time very deep instead of doing what he does best. It might turn out OK but rather you than me.

      At this point I'm just waiting for Aurier to get sent off. Trust me guys it will happen soon.
