Vardy’s goal streak continues as FPL’s best defence banks another clean sheet

Leicester City 2-0 Watford

  • Goals: Jamie Vardy (£9.9m), James Maddison (£7.6m)
  • Assists: Jonny Evans (£5.1m), James Justin (£4.8m)
  • Bonus: Evans x3, Maddison x2, Ricardo Pereira (£6.4m)

They can’t all be 9-0s.

The bar was set ludicrously high by Brendan Rodgers’ side in Gameweek 8 and since then the Foxes have recorded more modest victories, scoring exactly two goals in each of their last five league matches.

With in excess of two million Fantasy Premier League managers and over 82% of the top 10k handing the armband to Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) ahead of Leicester City’s home match against managerless, bottom-of-the-table Watford, there were wildly optimistic predictions of another mauling and a deluge of FPL points.

What followed was a game strikingly similar to the Gameweek 14 victory over Everton just three days earlier.

In both cases, a struggling Premier League team had frustrated the Foxes until well into the second half and forced Rodgers to shuffle his pack.

With a busy December ahead, the Leicester boss had hinted at rotation in his pre-match press conference, highlighting the probable need to freshen his starting XI up in order to maintain his side’s “energy and intensity”.

Despite these comments, Rodgers’ only alteration to his starting XI was an enforced one: Christian Fuchs (£4.3m) replacing the injured Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) at left-back.

It was perhaps no surprise, then, that some of Leicester’s players looked leggy against the Hornets on Wednesday, with the exertions of their last-gasp victory over Everton just over 72 hours before this latest match taking its toll.

Youri Tielemans (£6.7m), an ever-present this season and a player who had lasted at least 80 minutes in all 14 previous league fixtures, appeared to be particularly jaded and was substituted midway through the second half.

Ayoze Perez (£6.2m) has been mostly ineffectual in the last two Gameweeks, meanwhile, and, having been hauled off for Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) on Sunday, he failed to make it out after the interval against Watford last night.

It wouldn’t be a huge surprise if Rodgers makes a change or two against Aston Villa this weekend, then, with Tielemans and Perez among the leading candidates for a breather in the Midlands.

The Leicester boss said after the game:

We’ve played better this season. However, the mentality of the team and the ability to keep going… Hayden [Mullins] set the team up very well, Watford were very compact, very tight, deep, tried to frustrate. So that’s always difficult. But we had to keep our perseverance and keep going.

Harvey Barnes (£5.9m) looked anything but fatigued and, despite a fifth blank in a row, was one of the Foxes’ brighter players, especially in the first half.

A one-two with James Maddison (£7.6m) resulted in Barnes firing into the side netting before the left-winger danced his way through the Watford defence, only to be denied by Ben Foster (£4.8m) from close range.

The Watford goalkeeper was at it again after just after the break, thwarting Barnes from inside the six-yard box.

This was the young midfielder’s tenth start in a row for the Foxes; it was also the tenth successive game in which he has been substituted. Therein lies one of the downsides to Barnes, especially with Rodgers blessed with attack-minded options on the bench and threatening rotation over Christmas.

As was the case at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, it was a Vardy goal that set Leicester on their way to victory.

There is now almost a sense of inevitability that he will get on the scoresheet, regardless of how anonymous he looks.

Ever since Rodgers took over earlier this year, Vardy has wrestled FPL hauls from the jaws of a blank.

The late braces against Fulham and Arsenal, plus belated attacking returns against Huddersfield Town, are still fresh in the mind from the back-end of 2018/19.

Ten of his 14 goals this season have come in the second half and, although his latest strike came courtesy of a generous penalty award after a foul from Adam Masina (£4.3m) on Jonny Evans (£5.1m), he had arguably earned a lucky spot-kick decision, having been harshly penalised – and booked – for simulation in the Watford box earlier in the game.

The in-form premium striker, who remains FPL’s leading points-scorer, almost doubled his tally soon after, only to see his dinked effort hacked away from near the goal-line by a retreating Masina.

Maddison added gloss to the scoreline in injury time, bundling his way forward and firing past Foster to seal the win.

The England midfielder was himself not at his best last night but his owners would have felt they were due some luck after the penalty-taking farce of Gameweek 13 that deprived him of a goal against Brighton.

Normal service was resumed at the other end of the pitch, with Leicester keeping their seventh clean sheet of the season and their fifth in six Gameweeks.

Caglar Soyuncu (£5.1m) and co were seldom troubled, with Kasper Schmeichel (£5.3m) not making a save until injury time.

A Will Hughes (£5.5m) shot that struck Troy Deeney (£6.2m) was as close as the visitors came to breaking the deadlock before that.

Chilwell missed out on the shut-out points, with Rodgers saying of his injured left-back:

Hopefully, will be OK for the weekend. Slight problem with the top of his leg, the hip area. We’ll see how he goes over the next couple of days but hopefully OK.

Watford assets will be low down on many Fantasy managers’ watchlists, certainly until we find out who will succeed Quique Sanchez Flores at Vicarage Road.

Whoever steps into the managerial hotseat has a lot to tackle, with the Hornets seven points adrift at the foot of the Premier League and offering next-to-no attacking threat at the King Power despite their wholehearted performance.

Finding the back of the net has been a real problem in 2019/20 and Watford are the only top-flight team still in single figures for goals, with this latest defeat seeing them muster only four shots in total.

Mullins showed a bit more attacking ambition in deploying a 4-4-1-1, with Deeney in for the injured Jose Holebas (£4.7m), but there was little joy to be had against the Premier League’s meanest backline.

Owners of Crystal Palace and Liverpool defenders will be hoping that Watford remain shot-shy ahead of their encounters in Gameweeks 16 and 17 respectively.

Leicester City XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Fuchs; Ndidi; Perez (Praet 46′), Tielemans (Choudhury 69′), Maddison, Barnes (Justin 80′), Vardy.

Watford XI (4-4-1-1): Foster; Femenia, Mariappa, Cathcart, Masina; Hughes (Quina 83′), Doucoure, Capoue, Sarr; Deulofeu (Success 77′); Deeney (Gray 87′).

    Pulisic likely to start or come off the bench next gw?

    Ii think its highly likely he gets rested

    1. KDB4PREZ
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Only thing that’s making me not pull the trigger on martial>Pulisic is this threat

        Good to see the mountster back in the points and pulisic owners a little worried. We've had a tough time lately!

      • Regin

        he trolled me.
        mount to pulisic was my transfer instead of martial to alli which i did today.

        he did look tired but everton away is a very tough fixture, so its hard to call
        personally think he starts as he is too vital to the team at the moment

      • Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I have this thought also.

        I've been hearing he's due a rest for awhile now...

      Spurs players look nice for a (C) this week huh

      1. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Fixtures looking good for a while now as well. Maybe time for the Son and Alli double up.

        1. Tamagotchi Massacre
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Already done. Question is just how much do I trust picking the right one for a C

      2. Regin
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        did martial to alli.

        cant afford son. think alli playing more advances is worth the 1.2m less than son.

        a double up is only possible if i sacrifice kdb.

      3. GuenDoozy
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Son played 90 every game including the CL last week. That's why cant look past Vardy for safety of start, form and pens

          1. Tamagotchi Massacre
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Food for thought, but mourinho rags his players

            1. GuenDoozy
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Having the double up is differential enough IMO

                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  You might be right on that yeah

            2. Regin
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              yeah aston villa unlikely to keep clean sheet.

        • KDB4PREZ
            1 month, 14 days ago

            14 goals already for Vardy with his peak being at 24 in 15/16 season.
            Will he break it and how many does he score this season?

            I feel like he will and I’m going for 26 goals which means 12 from 22 remaining games.

            1. Gudjohnsen
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              He will break it. I predict 30.

            2. Tamagotchi Massacre
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              He'll clearly break it if fit. Totally different team. That said, u you never know how managers adapt in the second half of seasons. If they lose sight of the top spot it could become all about solidifying their position and their style could be tweaked

              1. Regin
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 14 days ago

                dont think so. leicester will be an attacking team thruout the season. i think the top 4 is decided. spurs, manu, arsenal dropping too many points. leicester keep winning and should finish 2nd or 3rd.

            3. GuenDoozy
                1 month, 14 days ago

                Another 16 goals easily with the way they are playing

              • Brosstan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 13 days ago

                Put in a bet for him to score 20+ before the season at 7.0 odds. Easy money now if he doesn't get injured.

                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 13 days ago

                  Will pull his hammy at 19 with six weeks left of the season. Will return for gw38 but miss a penalty in added time

              Worth ditching Ings to get Tammy back straight away? Or worth sticking with him a bit longer, hasnt really done much to justify being sold honestly

              1. KDB4PREZ
                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  Got this issue myself m8 Ings was placeholder now I don’t wanna sell.
                  Jimmy and Vardy other strikers tho so iv no idea what to do lol

                    1 month, 14 days ago

                    Same here, thinking I might just hold Ings a little longer as he is in excellent form regardless of what Tammy is doing, if it was any other player there would be no way Id consider selling a player who has scored in last 4 games

                    1. KDB4PREZ
                        1 month, 14 days ago

                        Fink I’ll do the same and swap martial to Pulisic then get Tammy back GW19 seems best strategy

                      i would definitely do jimmy to tammy.

                    1 month, 14 days ago

                    if u have the budget, do it. i need to decide whether to ship laca (west ham away) to tammy (EVE away) for a hit as i already did martial to alli.

                      Not for a hit.

                        1 month, 14 days ago

                      Same dilema but may take a hit for it. Anyone know why chillwel didn't play yesterday and if he is likely to be out at the weekend?

                        Plus I also have vardy and jimi. Wouldn't want to take jimi out till after the Norwich game.

                                That's why I feel I need Tammy back in after that shambles of a defence. Every long ball and Liverpool where in so I feel I dare not get Tammy back in

                          Fairly rough week - switched Mount for Zaha and benched Soyuncu (and Dendoncker).

                          Tielemans probably has to go now.
                          I’ve got 2ft... best options?

                          1. Tielemans to Grealish
                          2. Tielemans & Tomori -> Kelly & Maddison / Pulisic
                          3. Sterling & Tielemans -> Alli & Son

                            3 from those. Could also consider Sterling + Pope to Alli/Son and one of Hendo/Guaita/Ryan?

                            I had Soy and Donk on the bench as well - sure we won't be the only ones and I think autosubs will play a part this week. I've still got O'Connell from SHU to play tonight - he'll probably score and take my bench over 20...

                              I'd do 3 out of your choices. Look at the upcoming fixtures for Spurs.

                            Why jump on Grealish already? He has two extremely tough fixtures coming up - LEI and shu.

                          TAA Lund Rico Diop Janmaat
                          KDB Salah Pulisic Maddison Saka
                          Jimenez Ings Vardy

                          1FT 2.3ITB

                          1. Finally accept it and do Salah to Mane. Although he could face Bournemouth on the weekend well rested?
                          2. Salah > Son/Alli
                          3. Sort out one of the misnomers in my squad I.e. Diop, Janmaat, Saka. Can upgrade all with the 2.3.
                          4. Pope > Hendo/Guaita
                          5. Save.

                          Cheers in advance.

                              Tbh good team maybe consider 5. Your team is similar to mine and I am considering ings back to Tammy now he is for again

                            Can’t catch a break this season

                            Bench Pukki Cantwell Mings Gw14

                            No one came in

                            Bench Tomori Cantwell Mings Gw15

                            Mings comes in for Chilwell

                            Guita or Henderson for keeper??

                              guaita especially if u have lundstram.

                              Guaita, better fixtures long term

                            TAA - Lundy - Soy
                            Mane - Alli - Pulisic - Tielemans
                            Kane - Vardy - Jimenez

                            (4.0 Cantwell - Tomori - Rico)
                            1ft & 1.2m

                            A) Tomori to Aurier
                            B) Tielemans to Grealish
                            C) Both A & B for (-4)
                            D) Kane to Tammy
                            E) Kane & Tielemans to Son & Tammy (-4)

                            Maybe I should give Kane one more week against Burnley
                            Thoughts?

                              I'd give Kane another week, Everton away is not an easy fixture for Tammy

                              1. Karan14

                                Yes I agree. Will look at this move next week.
                                Think its between A or B as those two are becoming liabilities.

                                A this week and D next for me. B the following week would be my strategy prob as decent fixtures for players transferring out

                                1. Karan14

                                  That seems like a good plan.

                                  Cheers!

                                    Easy hold. Not sure what the appeal is for Aurier. Spurs are conceding 2 every game

                                    1. Karan14

                                      They have been a bit unlucky.
                                      Only conceded 1 big chance over the past 3 games and xgc of just above 3.
                                      Aurier is very advanced seems like he could get a few attacking returns and very good on bonus too surprisingly.

                                    2. KDB4PREZ
                                        1 month, 14 days ago

                                        Aurier better pick than Tomori surely you’d agree?

                                    Not sure where to go next. No Tammy could be a problem, no Alli, Chilwell’s injury. Any thoughts with 1FT? Have my WC aswell. 0ITB

                                      Maybe mount to grealish and montoya/willems to aurier

                                    Got a bit carried away last evening and did Pulisic/Janmaat to Alli/Aurier for -4...

                                    I know, too soon and not worth -4...

                                          If Pulisic benched and Janmaat is still injured

                                        Best replacement for Martial? Currently thinking of, Pulisic and Grealish. Cant afford Alli right now

                                            Pulisic if plays next 3 lol think I’ll do this move myself

                                              I expect Pulisic to be benched at Everton on Saturday

                                            I took Zaha due to fixtures. I have double Chelsea and double Spurs already and didn't want to triple up at this point.

                                          Think I need some radicals moves, pretty fed up with "promising players" like KDB, Jim and Pulisic:

                                          This week, KDB to Dele (c), next week Jim Auba to Tammy Rash ?
                                          Dele playing basically as the second striker...

                                              Jimenez has Norwich in GW18 id keep him till then.
                                              Could be one of the standout captaincy picks.

                                                  When did you get him?

                                                  He's only blanked once in the last 5 games. Doing pretty well.

                                                    Probably two GWs ago and he is bitter because Ings and co are doing better.

                                                    Next 3 are perfect Jimenez-like games imo

                                                  He’s been great this year. Don’t know why people are selling tbh. Got attacking returns in most games recently

                                                    Jimi has been one of the best this season, very consistent. I’m keeping for sure

                                            Salah+Jimenez to Kane+Dilva?

                                                Let’s c rest of team? Pretty sure you could do better than getting Kane in

                                                  why not? he always good in this period of the season

                                                    Why would you want a 11m holding midfielder when you get their attacker for 8.5

                                                People with 3 pool (double of defense for me) what’s plan for Gw18 if no WC?
                                                I’ll have strong bench to cover all 3 but feels awful to bench so much! Prob have to sell Robo at that point but I’d only want the double up again!

                                                  Rico Kelly Cantwell good fixtures

                                                2. Jullepuu
                                                    1 month, 14 days ago

                                                    I think that I will bench all three of them. By game week 18 my bench will be Grealish, Hayden and a cheap defender (probably Rico)

                                                    Problem is not Pool, we shud just bench them. Problem is all the other highly owned players having tough matchups

                                                      This question has probably been asked a hundred times already but who would you rather have after this GW?
                                                      A) Abraham
                                                      B) Rashford

                                                      Rashford's fixtures are great but to bring him in would mean downgrading somewhere else for a hit, and above all I just don't trust Utd, they are still a basket case of a team like Arsenal.

                                                        Tammy or both

                                                        Tammy for me most likely.

                                                        Will get Rashford later for Jimenez if needed.

                                                            He's probably my supersub for that one.

                                                          Even im tempted to make that switch this week but the fixtures over the next 2 means it could backfire.

                                                        Gw18 Might be my captain as well

                                                      What to do with this team?

                                                      Probs need to get a spurs mid in there.

                                                      A) Robertson, Pulisic/Maddison -> Aurier, Son
                                                      B) Other (any suggestions?)

                                                      Trent is also on 4 yellows so may get rid of him instead of Robbo? Fed up of having 2 pool defenders and constantly having points on the bench.

                                                      Team below:

                                                      Massive selling of Jimenez seems like kneejerking to me.

                                                        Yeah, surely there are other issues in the team

                                                        Not selling till after Norwich game in a couple of weeks.

                                                        Agreed. The guy has only blanked one in the past 5 games and has the stats to back it up.
                                                        bha, TOT, nor I can see points in those 3 fixtures.

                                                        Yeah good stats yesterday but tbf those playing two up top i think Vardy Tammy is the way to go

                                                        Seems like Tammy is back to me more like. Was always the plan to switch back.

                                                      How did kane look yesterday? Hasnt looked threatening post jose has he?

                                                        Thinking of going kane to jiminez for those 3 juicy fixtures.

                                                        He looked like a decent central midfielder, honestly.

                                                          Honestly could see him score very well against Burnley because many will have sold (that’s how this effing game works innit?) but defo wouldnt keep long term. He is still playing waaaayyyy too deep
