Why appealing home fixtures are becoming a problem for Abraham

Chelsea assets continue to frustrate Fantasy Premier League managers as they recorded yet another awful home result in Gameweek 19.

They were undone by basement boys Southampton on an afternoon when many a captain armband was placed on Blues options.

Meanwhile, we got our first chance to see Arsenal under new manager Mikel Arteta.

We’ve got some analysis on both matches in this latest Scout Notes article.

Chelsea 0-2 Southampton

Goals: Michael Obafemi (£4.9m), Nathan Redmond (£6.2m)

Assists: Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.8m)

Bonus Points: Cédric Soares x3 (£4.8m), Jan Bednarek x2 (£4.4m), Obafemi x2

Tammy Abraham‘s (£7.9m) stock continues to fall as he recorded yet another blank in a disappointing result for Chelsea on Boxing Day.

Despite naming a strong line-up, Frank Lampard saw his side lose 2-0 at home to a Southampton outfit that started the match without in-form goalscorer Danny Ings (£6.5m).

It was the third time in four Premier League matches at Stamford Bridge that Chelsea have lost to a relegation-threatened club without scoring – which has gone a long way to causing trust issues when it comes to captaining their players.

Furthermore, with so many so-called smaller clubs coming to Chelsea and registering positive results, it appears that Stamford Bridge is losing fear for the sides that Lampard’s men should be beating. Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl explained his players were motivated by that and it suggests that this sort of problem could potentially create a vicious cycle at home.

“When you see that two teams win here then why shouldn’t you also? This is more of losing the fear, don’t be afraid. Come here, be brave. I spoke before about how we want to win here.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Despite doing so well against Spurs in Gameweek 18, Chelsea barely got any kind of rhythm going against Southampton on Boxing Day, not managing a single shot on target until the stroke of half-time.

Mason Mount (£6.5m), who was named on the bench alongside Christian Pulisic (£7.2m), replaced Kurt Zouma (£4.7m) at half-time, triggering a switch from the 3-4-3 formation to a 4-2-3-1.

There was something of an impact as Abraham soon after had the chance to lash an effort into the side-netting, his only shot of the match, and even after that, Chelsea were still woeful going forward.

“Mason has been feeling rough the last few days. It brightened it a bit [when he came on at half-time] but not enough. We controlled the game but we are not getting anything in the box. It’s a testing period but we have to deal with that.” – Frank Lampard

It means that Abraham has now blanked in six of his last seven Premier League outings. It will be interesting to see how his ownership suffers over the coming days as Chelsea still have relatively favourable fixtures to come, including trips to Arsenal and Brighton.

While there was a second start in a row for Fikayo Tomori (£4.8m) in a back-three, there was no repeat of the impressive defensive display witness at Spurs in Gameweek 18.

Tomori himself and Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) produced important second-half blocks but could not record back-to-back clean sheets.

The fact that Michael Obafemi (£4.9m) and Nathan Redmond (£6.2m), two players with fairly sketchy scoring histories, were able to find the net adds insult to injury in many respects – as the more ruthless Ings featured for only 21 second-half minutes and one-pointed his 14.5% ownership.

With plenty of options at Lampard’s disposal, the Gameweek 20 trip to Arsenal could well see some rotation for Chelsea.

Given recent displays, it must be said that Abraham is at risk of being replaced by Michy Batshuayi (£6.6m).

However, Mount and Pulisic can probably feel more confident of a start at the Emirates Stadium having both featured only as substitutes in Gameweek 19.

Furthermore, Ings’ absence from the majority of this match, while frustrating, should significantly boost his chances of starting Southampton’s hosting of Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.4m) came in for his first start since Gameweek 9 but was panned by the local press. Despite such a poor performance, Lampard lent his backing to the player after the full-time whistle.

“I thought (Hudson-Odoi) put a lot of effort in today, he was trying things, making runs, not quite coming off for him in the first half. He’s come off the back of a big injury and this is certainly a period where we have to stick with him. He’s very young. A lot of talk last year about contract and would he or wouldn’t he and now he has and he’s in a period now where he has to get his head down and work and he knows that – to show what he can be for this club. It’s down to him now. I showed faith in him playing today and I will continue to do that. But we also have to go with him a little bit. And I’ve sat here and I’ve probably been relatively harsh on Callum a couple of times and I don’t think now is the moment to do that because I think today I saw an effort and a desire, I’ve seen it in training these last couple of weeks.” – Frank Lampard

Chelsea XI (3-4-3): Kepa; Tomori, Zouma (Mount 46′), Rüdiger; Emerson, Jorginho, Kanté, Azpilicueta; Willian (Pedro 84′), Abraham, Hudson-Odoi (Pulisic 67′).

Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Cédric; Redmond, Højbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Romeu 86′); Adams (Boufal 80′), Obafemi (Ings 69′).

Bournemouth 1-1 Arsenal

Goals: Dan Gosling (£4.9m) | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m)

Assists: Jack Stacey (£4.3m) | Reiss Nelson (£5.3m)

Bonus Points: Stacey x3, Aubameyang x2, Gosling x1

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m) scored the first goal of Arteta’s reign as Arsenal manager as he continued his recent impressive form away from home.

In the Gunners’ last four matches away from the Emirates Stadium, Aubameyang has now registered a total of five attacking returns.

The centre-forward did not offer a huge amount in the first half but sprung to life in the second period. 

As predicted, he was deployed on the left flank of an attacking midfield trio behind Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m), his wide station helping him remain unmarked by marauding full-back Jack Stacey (£4.3m).

Aubameyang caused plenty of problems when running at the Bournemouth defence and his persistence led to ending up in the right place at the right time to turn in the rebound from Reiss Nelson‘s (£5.3m) shot.

Back in the team for a first start since Gameweek 15, Lacazette showed some threat early on but faded as the game went on and he started missing easy passes.

Of particular note for Arsenal was an impressive performance from Mesut Özil (£7.2m), who earned praise both from the local press and his new manager.

He was deployed in the number 10 role of the 4-2-3-1 formation and was arguably unfortunate not to leave Bournemouth with a couple of assists to his name.

He set up Lacazette for a decent chance but the Frenchman couldn’t get the ball under control while Aubameyang spurned another chance created by Özil.

“Özil’s attitude since I’ve joined has been incredible. We believed he could be the key and he responded and he could have created two or three goals.” – Mikel Arteta

However, there is still not much improvement to Arsenal’s defence as, once again, injuries elsewhere in the squad forced them into starting Bukayo Saka (£4.5m) and Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) at left-back and right-back respectively.

As players who have mostly played in midfield, they offered a little extra going forward but remain assets to be exploited.

Bournemouth’s opening goal came after Aubameyang’s pass to Saka did not find its target, leaving room behind to run in.

The Cherries’ attack has stuttered in recent months but they got some joy down Stacey’s flank as his cross was swept in by Dan Gosling (£4.9m) at the near-post.

Callum Wilson (£7.4m) was back in the starting XI for the Boxing Day clash but has now gone 12 successive Gameweeks without any attacing returns.

A suspension for left-back Diego Rico (£4.3m), as well as long-term injuries to Lloyd Kelly (£4.4m) and Charlie Daniels (£4.3m), did not put Howe off deploying a 4-4-2 formation once again.

Rather than switch to a wing-back system, he brought budget defender Jack Simpson (£3.9m), who usually plays centre-back, into the side to operate as make-shift left-back.

Fantasy managers should probably not expect Simpson to stick around in the first-team for too long as Rico will be available for the Gameweek 20 trip to Brighton, likely starting the game having technically had a rest on Boxing Day.

Finally, Bournemouth’s defensive potential has arguably increased somewhat by a surprise return to fitness of Steve Cook (£5.0m), who came in for the injured Simon Francis (£4.4m) and lasted 90 minutes.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Ramsdale; Simpson, Mepham, S Cook, Stacey; Fraser, Gosling (Billing 70′), Lerma, L Cook; J King (H Wilson 66′), C Wilson.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Saka, D Luiz, Sokratis (Mustafi 77′), Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Torreira; Aubameyang, Özil (Willock 75′), Nelson (Pépé 82′); Lacazette.

      I’d be tempted with BC although expensive. I think bobby may be on one of his streaks, getting so many chances.

    Wow, I got back from work very late today and have only just finished watching the Liverpool game (managed to avoid all spoilers thankfully!). Trent Alexander-Arnold... SUPERB. I told so many people before this gw to not sell him to fund Mo! This is him just catching up to where he should be in the points total! As a Martial, Grealish, Alli, Mane, Digne and TAA owner with a current score of 75 and a huge green up to 85k (I was 1.1Mil in gw11 and was on the verge of quitting) it’s safe to say i’m buzzing. If only I hadn’t gone with Tammy captain this truly could have been a revolutionary Gameweek. As my FPL name says... Klopp to the top 😉

      Did TAAs position improve and did he move forward more after Salah was subbed out?

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Hard to say, I don’t think there was any tactical change with Salah off except Mane went to the right. The game opened up a lot tho and manes a lot better at passing and moving than salah in general which helped Trent. Mane drifted a lot which also opened up space in front of Trent on the right but i’m not sure it was a huge difference. He was very attacking all game.

    DCL nailed do we think? A better pick than Maupay?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Personally I think so. Not many agree with me though.

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        A punt on King the better choice ya reckon?= with those fixtures?

        Have 6.1 to spend on a forward.

    2. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Go delofeu

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Ya reckon? Watford a bit dodge though aren't they?
        then again, no more than Bou i suppose 🙂

    3. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I like DCL as an option. Better than Maupay? Idk yet, I think he might be tho

    4. ...al - Fireteam Zulu

      Ferguson have him a kick up the arse

      Could be good

  4. seewhyaxe
    • 3 Years

    Should I double up Mane + Salah on a wildcard?

    If I don't do that now, it's going to be hard to find resources around to double up in future.

    If I do it now, it means 25m budget gone for 2 pool players in a tougher run of fixtures.

          Which is good for them

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

      I would prefer robbo and TAA

      1. seewhyaxe
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        I'm more interested with an attack double up though.

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Probably not now. But have a plan to make it happen in future. For example, you could switch from 3-4-3 to 4-4-2 when their fixtures improve (downgrade a forward to fodder and upgrade a mid-priced mid).

  5. skilldave
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    If tripling up on Liverpool now, which would you choose?
    A: Salah/Mané/TAA
    B: Salah/Robertson/TAA

    Also, does decision change at the GW25 stage?
    1: Yes
    2: No

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year

      B2

      Milner is a better pen taker

      Sh!t and selfish bottling chances and making wrong decisions

        Plenty of this.

        Also, Klopp needed to pick one or him or Mane to rest for Wolves.

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          + 210 minutes in Qatar, it was so obvious

  7. Tony Martial

    Transfers to be made?

    Pukki ~Ings?

    Anyone else in that price bracket?

        Hmm tempting me!

        But is he a certain scorer against a solid Palace defense?(Guaita owner since game week 14 so slightly biased

          No one's a certain scorer, but he has the form

          Ive had Trent from the beginning, however, it's very easy why he hasn't been an obvious pick for some. He's only shown glimpses of last year's potential and there have been excellent cheaper options that free up cash to dramatically improve any squad.

          1. ...al - Fireteam Zulu
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            For sure. However, these balls he supplied today for crosses or whatever, he has done week in week out just with not as many returns or goals on the end of them.

            He won’t keep up the points but this was a very typical performance and a glimpse of what he can do when it all works out

                    Cantwell to Romeu could help avoid benching headaches, whilst giving exact funds

                        Nice option, just if someone gets rested... Cantwell is a great sub?

                          If one of your attackers gets rested likelihood is they'll get a cameo anyway. But I know what you're saying

              Is Lundstram to Gomez crazy?

              Reason I am thinking of doing it is because in the next 5 game weeks Sheff Utd have liv(a), city(a), ars(a), city(h). So realistically in the next 5 game weeks Lundstram will likely be on my bench for 4 of them. If I switch to Gomez I can get Liverpool defensive coverage, yet not have to ruin the rest of my team trying to get TAA in. And then once Sheff Utds fixtures ease up, hopefully Lundstrams price May have come back down 0.1/0.2 so I can get him back in. Thoughts?

                    Yep should be for now, Lovren and Matip are out. Also I think he’ll take the spot for his own barring injury in the long term, he’s superb.

                  2. boroie

                    At the moment, yes. Matip and Lovren seem to be out for the foreseeable future and they don’t have any other centre backs. When Matip comes back then I can swap Lundstram back in for Gomez.

                  Who would you rather play?

                  A) pulisic away to arsenal
                  B) Jimenez away to Liverpool

                  Leaning quite heavily to pulisic.

                  He should start and the last thing wolves need after Playing man city is a trip to Anfield less than 48 hours after

                    I wouldn’t. Firmino has just as much chance of being rested as Abraham. And Maddison will out score Grealish over the season.

                  Apologies for asking again lads, just a mare trying to decide what forward to choose at 6.1 and under if i do Rico + Tammy > TAA + 6.1 FWD

                  Only other option is to do Aurier + Tammy > TAA + 6.8 FWD (so...Ings)

                  Trying my best to do the former move, and decide between King, Delo, and DCL

                  Another 50/50 call that's gone wrong.

                  Ended with Mané (C), Alli and Aurier (26 pts, decent) instead of Kane (C), Zaha, TAA (42 pts). Another disastrous Gameweek and I'm staying just oustide the top 1m.

                  Team is :

                  Henderson Button
                  Aurier Lundstram Dunk Rico Kelly
                  Mané KDB Alli Maddison Grealish

                  Any ideas ?

                    Captained him today. Probably shifting back to Vardy, though.

                  So, if home fixtures are tough for Tammy, should I keep him for the next two?

                  gw20 at Arsenal - I mean, against that defense, watch Tammy get a brace.

                  I’ve got all this spare cash but Alli fixtures look good. Salah starts next game and Mane get subbed,so might be perfect to get Mo in

                  However, Alli has fixtures

                        Alli fixtures though. Mad to sell an attacking player before Norwich
