Scout Notes

Abraham asking tough questions of patient owners

We round up the key Fantasy talking points from Brighton v Chelsea and Aston Villa v Burnley in our first Scout Notes article of Gameweek 21.

Brighton 1-1 Chelsea

Goals: Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.8m) | Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m)

Assists: Lewis Dunk (£4.7m) | Tammy Abraham (£7.8m)

Bonus Points: Azpilicueta x3, Jahanbakhsh x2, Bernardo x2 (£4.3m)

Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) owners may have a tough decision to make over the FA Cup third round break.

The centre-forward continues to tick along with points, registering an assist in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Brighton, but his Amex Stadium performance was another quiet one, just as was the case against Arsenal in Gameweek 20.

Across the 90 minutes, Abraham only touched the ball in Brighton’s penalty box three times and registered just two shots on goal.

Admittedly the first, blocked by Aaron Mooy (£4.8m), led to Cesar Azpilicueta‘s (£5.8m) goal, earning him a Fantasy assist. However, it is this continued drip of points that may make selling Abraham a tricky decision.

Up next for Chelsea is a meeting with Burnley at Stamford Bridge, where the Blues have struggled this season, although the Clarets themselves were exceptionally poor in Gameweek 21.

Abraham was not the only Chelsea asset to struggle at the Amex Stadium as Mason Mount (£6.3m) in particular spent most of the afternoon on the periphery.

Christian Pulisic (£7.0m) was more involved than most but, as has too often been the case of late, his performance largely consisted of snatched shots from the left-hand side that did not trouble the goalkeeper.

The American managed to find space to shoot on five different occasions but regardless of whether he went around the outside of right-back Martín Montoya (£4.4m), or cut inside the defender, Pulisic never really looked like scoring.

“In the first half, the game was there to be won. We weren’t ruthless enough. We got the goal and we had the possession, but we just didn’t kill the game off [The lack of consistency] is a concern. It’s something we absolutely have to look at.” – Frank Lampard

Arguably, the most impressive attacker for Chelsea was right-back Reece James (£5.0m), who surprisingly surfaced in the starting line-up after Frank Lampard had ruled him out for at least a week.

The versatile youngster used his pace to get around Dan Burn (£4.5m) plenty of times in the first half and could have got on the scoresheet with a fierce shot in the first five minutes.

However, James’ forward-thinking helped Brighton maintain a foothold in the game, as Neal Maupay (£5.8m) in particular was able to expose the space behind him.

His runs into that area of the pitch helped set up Steven Alzate (£4.5m) in the fifth minute and Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) just before half-time.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) was called into action for that Trossard effort and was forced into three more important stops in the game too.

Antonio Rüdiger (£6.0m) also had to put his body on the line to keep Chelsea in the game in the second half as Brighton asked plenty of questions.

The Seagulls finally made a deserved breakthrough in the 84th minute when Lewis Dunk (£4.7m) nodded across to Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.8m), who scored with a spectacular bicycle kick.

The Iranian international had to go over a year before scoring his first-ever goal for Brighton against Bournemouth and he now has two in as many outings.

However, it remains unclear whether or not Jahanbakhsh can be turned to as a viable Fantasy asset as he featured only as a substitute against Chelsea, which means he still only has one league start to his name all season.

“Everyone is delighted for Jahanbakhsh. He’s worked so hard and waited so long, and to have his freshness off the bench was the thinking and he popped up with a great strike. He’s had to be patient, but he’s got qualities and he’s getting his reward.” – Graham Potter

Brighton’s goal does tell us a lot about what we need to know on Chelsea’s defence.

It ensured that their only clean sheet since Gameweek 13 was that 2-0 win at Spurs last month and with Fikayo Tomori (£4.8m) missing out on Gameweek 21, not even on the bench, the number of viable assets in Chelsea’s defence is rapidly declining.

“We allowed them to stay in the game. In the end, it was a wonder goal but we were lucky not to lose the game. In the end, the tactics matched up for both teams but they were better than us. We have to take that on the chin.” – Frank Lampard

Finally, there may be a budget option emerging in Brighton’s defence following a serious-looking injury to Burn.

The centre-back has done well on the left of defence this season but was replaced in the 22nd minute after injuring his collar bone and is expected to be out for six to eight weeks.

Coming in for him was Bernardo (£4.3m), now available for upcoming games against Everton (away), Aston Villa (home), Bournemouth (away) and West Ham (away) at a reduced price.

The left-back played 68 minutes of the draw with Chelsea but came on after Azpilicueta scored the opening goal, so he claimed a clean sheet and one bonus for a seven-point score.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-1-2): Ryan; Burn (Bernardo 22′), Dunk, Webster, Montoya; Bissouma (Connolly 46′), Pröpper, Alzate; Mooy (Jahanbakhsh 68′); Maupay, Trossard.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rüdiger, R James; Jorginho, Kanté; Pulisic (Hudson-Odoi 66′), Mount (Kovačić 73′), Willian; Abraham.

Burnley 1-2 Aston Villa

Goals: Chris Wood (£6.2m) | Wesley (£5.6m), Jack Grealish (£6.4m)

Assists: Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) | Grealish, Douglas Luiz (£4.4m)

Bonus Points: Grealish x3, Luiz x2, Wood x1, Westwood x1

Jack Grealish (£6.4m) absolutely ran the show for Aston Villa in their 2-1 win at Burnley on New Year’s Day.

The midfielder was comfortably the best player on the park as he registered a goal and assist for a 13-point haul.

Grealish arguably should have been on the scoresheet before he banked his two attacking returns as a controversial Video Assistant Referee review chalked off what would have been the opening goal of the game.

Centre-back Ezri Konsa (£4.3m) played an excellent cross into the box early on, which Grealish nodded beyond Nick Pope (£4.7m).

However, it was ruled out by the VAR for offside against Wesley (£5.6m) in the build-up, whose boot heel was not much more than a millimetre or two closer to Burnley’s goal than James Tarkowski‘s (£5.1m).

“Jack Grealish is unfortunate to not have two goals today. I’m still not sure why it was disallowed looking at the still image.” – Dean Smith

With VAR arguably not a huge helper of Villa this season, the decision galvanised them and Grealish in particular.

Soon after having the goal chalked off, the Villa captain teed up Wesley, who forced a save out of Pope at the near post, before Douglas Luiz (£4.4m) drew another stop from the Burnley goalkeeper.

In the 29th minute, Grealish’s slightly deflected cross was chested down by an unmarked Wesley, who swivelled and slotted home under Pope.

It was a goal that was well-deserved, as Burnley offered very little in the opening exchanges.

Grealish then got his own goal in the 41st minute after some good link-up with Luiz. The Brazilian sprayed wide to Grealish on his left-flank of the attack, who fired an effort into the top corner before Pope had a chance to set himself.

However, it must be said that Villa were helped in their domination of this fixture by an uncharacteristically poor performance from Burnley.

While the Clarets have been somewhat shy in front of goal recently, it was strange to see them so loose in possession in the midfield.

Burnley were so sloppy pn the ball that it was a little easier for Villa to start their attacks in dangerous positions, while Tom Heaton (£4.5m) remained nothing more than a spectator for at least the first hour.

Villa were also helped by a change of formation though, which saw Smith line-up in a 3-4-3 system, featuring the returning Tyrone Mings (£4.5m), Kortney Hause (£4.4m) and Konsa in the defence with Neil Taylor (£4.3m) and Frédéric Guilbert (£4.4m) as wing-backs.

“We changed the system and I thought that we wanted to get on the ball and play. The lads looked really accomplished at it. We’ve only had a couple of days to work on it. A lot of them have played it before at previous clubs. We’ve been conceding too many goals and playing the three helped us get an extra head in the box.” – Dean Smith

Either way, such a big haul will almost certainly increase the interest in Grealish, who is currently owned by 16.4%, especially with his fixtures on the horizon.

Manchester City, who have displayed defensive weaknesses on the road this season, come to Villa Park next, while Brighton (away), Watford (home) and Bournemouth (away) are the three subsequent opponents for Dean Smith’s men.

It must be said that, as per usual, Villa did struggle in the second half. The fact that Burnley worked their way back into the game means that they have still conceded more goals after half-time than any other side this season.

Chris Wood (£6.2m) knocked on the door on more than one occasion before he busted the Villa clean sheet in the 80th minute.

However, Villa were not helped by injuries to Wesley and Heaton in the second half, both of them stretchered off with knee problems.

“Both of them felt their knee. We’re not sure what the prognosis is as of yet obviously, we will let them have a scan and see from there. Wesley felt something following the tackle from Ben Mee and Tom’s was when he was trying to claw the ball out the top corner. Too early to know, but our medical staff are with them now.” – Dean Smith

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Brady (Gudmundsson 46′); A Barnes (Rodriguez 46′), Wood.

Aston Villa XI (3-4-3): Heaton (Nyland 85′); Hause, Mings, Konsa; N Taylor, Nakamba, Douglas Luiz, Guilbert; Grealish, Wesley (Kodjia 71′), Trézéguet (Hourihane 78′).

      depends how you attack the double in gw24?

      KDB position yesterday was not good, and his 14 pointer vs sHu came from same position, via a assist that ref stood in the way of fleck and could have been disallowed, then a long burst of a run which he did once in the whole game, that new set up with 3 defenders and KDB/Gundogan in the middle serves them well in terms of the game, but limits him a bit FPL wise. So much quality though so every time he sets his mind to it he scores-)

      Villa next looks incredibly juicy as Villa really can´t defend. Still, not sure of a minus 4, and Martial has Norwich home and that suits United better, i would give Martial that one.

      Rico is not much better than a 3.9 non starting defender with those problems Bou are in atm. subbed at halftime which could be coincidental but they are awful and he is yellow card magnet too. Fixtures are good for anyone who gets Bou next games, not the other way round

  2. Whats the Huth

    Alright. Was all set to do Grealish to Traoré. Which would’ve raised much needed funds to allow other transfers. But Grealish performed fantastically - so he stays.
    Any ideas what to do here? 2 FT and 0.0ITB
    I’m 0.1 away from Hendo to Fab

    Henderson. McGovern
    Söyüncü. TAA. Lundstram. Rico. Tomori.
    Maddison. Mane. Salah. KDB. Grealish.
    Maupay. Vardy. Ings.

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      Think I’ve got it.

      Tomori to Kiko and Henderson to Fab?

        Maupay to Mousset and Henderson to Fab?

        1. Whats the Huth

          Great shout. I do need a fodder
          Cheers

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years

      you got two defenders that might cause you trouble down the line, Tomori and Rico. You have a set up which can work but not so many that you can downgrade to upgrade, and the 3 first defenders listed are all good. Everton got some good fixtures coming, Watford as well. Brighton also, in that segment (i guess Tomori is 4.5 or more?) Holgate, Webster and one of the Watford guys could be decent going forward?

      It looks like Rico got nice fixtures and they are nice, but for the opposition to score, not to get CS. Tomori is in and out, Chelsea rarely keeps cs so i rather have someone else.

  3. Slitherene

    Have 2 FT's, 1 ITB

    Ryan (Button)
    Aurier* Soyuncu Kabasele (Rico) (Simpson)
    Grealish* KdB Salah Maddison (Dendoncker)
    Kane* Rashford Vardy

    What to do with this bunch here?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Grealish stays.
      You need to deal with Kane and Aurier

      Get TAA in. Then Kane to whoever finds allows. I’d even consider selling rashford

      1. Slitherene
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        What about Aurier, Grealish, Kane to afford Holgate, Mane, DCL?

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      You should have that * behind Rico as well. Prioritize the ones that cause you problems, not Grealish even if City i would keep and then some good ones after that

      I would prepare for Liv double, boring yes, but even with what looks like difficult games next i would have at least 2 if not 3.

      Kane and Aurier, Rico and perhaps rashford after norwich, so deal with first two or even a hit to remove Rico is what i would do,

  4. maratus

    Morning lads!
    Could use some help.

    Guaita (Button)
    TAA Soy Holgate
    Grealish Maddison KDB Mane
    Ings Vardy Rashford

    Bench: Aurier Rico Cantwell

    2 FT, 1.9 ITB.

    What to do here? Need to get Salah/Robertson in somehow. Im 0.1 short for easy Aurier -> Robertson.

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Cantwell to Dendoncker? Would give you required funds

      1. maratus
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Huh, never.

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Rico to Reid? 5th defender probably wont be required especially when you have double LIV and Soyuncu.

      1. maratus
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thats interesting idea. Sell value of Rico is only 4.2. So it feels kind of bad move.
        Now after some tinkering maybe to downgrade Guaita?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          It is an option but I'm not sure which GK would you go for, pretty much all cheap options are inconsistent.

          Fabianski maybe?

          1. maratus
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Ryan fixtures seems most appealing.

          2. maratus
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I would defo go with Fab because the new manager boost, but those fixtures..

  5. King Kohli
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Thoughts on this move?
    Alli + Rashford + Lowton > Mane + DCL + 3.9 (-4)

    Guaita (Stek)
    TAA Soy Lundy ( Rico Lowton)
    Salah KDB Alli Maddison ( Cantwell)
    Vardy(c) Rashford Ings

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Not bad

      But Rashford will face NOR and BUR in next 3

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        This is a reason to look at double Liverpool defence rather than Salah and Mane. Allows Rashford for Burnley.

        1. King Kohli
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Double pool defence gives me a benching headache for most weeks.

          Can do Alli + Lowton > Sarr + VVD

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Aye.
            Or just Alli > Sarr now and wait until the double if you could afford Söyüncü > Robertson or VVD.

            Imo the double Liverpool defence not essential straight away,can wait until the DGW.
            That would solve your benching headache as well.

          2. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Depends how badly you want double Liverpool attack and the sacrifices you want to make. Liverpool fixtures are great after the double for both attack and Defence.

      2. King Kohli
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        He is very inconsistent though.Feel like DCL can match him over the next 5 fixtures.

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          If you feel this way you make the move.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Replace Rashford with Jimenez then you can go for a double Liverpool attack

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Ignore that you need the funds

  6. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Repost as I’m looking for some comments please guys...

    I don’t particularly want to downgrade Grealish to Traore in order to free up funds for an upgrade of Greenwood, so I think I’ve got it down to the following options:

    1. Dendoncker >> Traore (Greenwood would then be my 8th attacker)
    2. Kelly Greenwood >> Kiko DCL (-4)

    Henderson
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
    KDB Mane Salah Grealish
    Vardy Jimenez Greenwood

    McGovern Rico Dendoncker Kelly

    1 FT, 1.3 ITB

    Hate taking hits but if going down the Greenwood >> DCL route is better than getting Adama Traore then I will!

    Thanks all

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      2nd is fine but Kiko was subbed off with an injury.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thanks mate, could be someone else 4.2 or less, it’s just to free up funds to do Greenwood >> DCL...

        Do you think worth the hit ?

        Yeah, it's a no-brainer really at this point.

        However if my injuries are nothing serious, I could wait and see what happens with Button and Kelly. Button could soon drop to 3.9 and Kelly is not far from raising to 4.5. I can make 0.1 profit. It will be very useful for my super cheap defense.

        I'm waiting for Janmaat. At 4.1 he is a steal!

          I just got rid of Kelly as going to a cheap def and only having 4 playing.

            You picked Simpson?

    Pope, mcgov
    Taa, aurier, Lund, Rico, soyuncu
    Salah, maddison, moura, kdb, Cantwell
    Rashford, vardy, Abraham

    2ft, 0.2 itb. Thinking of just doing Pope > Ryan.
    Any other suggestions? Not too happy with aurier or moura...likely to go followin weeks

    Pope and Moura to Fabianski and Grealish worth a hit?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Nope for a hit

    Alli to

    A) Maddison
    B) Richarlison

    Rich has a slight edge in the stats, but Madds edges it slightly in the fixtures. They are almost level on points, but Everton have been average most of the season so I feel there’s room for improvement there whereas Leicester are maxed out.

    I think Madds the safer pick though.

    Any idea of top10k Salah/Mane captains or Vardy vice captains percentage?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No, but I suspect that there will be a high % of Pool(c) and Vardy(c)/Pool(vc) tonight.

    2. maratus
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Vardy 47.62%
      Mane 15.86%
      KDB 15.63%
      Salah 6.58%
      Kane 5.67%

      1. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 2 Years

        is that the percentage of captains this week?

        1. maratus
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Yes for top10k

    Morning all

    2 FT
    0.2m

    Shall I do?

    Kane & Lucas Moura to DCL & Mane? Tempted to just go for it now, Mane can score against anyone.

    Salah (c) ....OMG the EO means OR jump.......if he hauls !! Have Mane and TAA too, with Cantwell of the bench. Lets see what happens !!

  24. RAMZES666

    How to fit KDB into this team? As i think he is a season keeper? Or just go double Pool defence?

    Current front 7:
    Salah Mane Maddison Grealish Cantwell
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

  25. Lukakus Unit

      Grealish to Traore killed me this week 🙁

      Dele Alli to Richarlison after FA Cup matches (provided no injuries of course)?

      Long term who is better to have in your team

      1) Ings
      2) Grealish

        A but try to get both.

      Thinking about downgrading Aguero. Was a WC punt/cashcow for transfering Mane or Robertson in for DGW. My plan was Jimenez back in, sold him for Aguero on WC. But DCL looks great and even cheaper. What to do?

      1. mynameisq

        DCL has the fixtures and the city match showed me that ancelotti wants to attack and the whole team is set up to service DCL. Normally would never consider him but part of the reason I'm doing so badly is that I have taken way too long to accept that there are basically 0 good defences in the premier League other than Liverpool, there is no big team to be scared of or a bad fixture so players like DCL will score

          Thank you. Its also more fun to jump on bandwagons like DCL early instead of going back to good old Jimenez.

      Planning to use my WC

      Out: Digne, Tomori, Lundy, Alli, Hayden, Tammy, Rash

      In: Sidibe, Robbo, Hanley, Salah, Cantwell, DCL, Ings

      That would give me this squad and I’ll be ready for dgw24:

      Ramsdale Button
      Robbo, Sidibe, Soyuncu, Kelly, Hanley
      Salah, Mane, Kdb, Grealish, Cantwell
      Vardy, Ings, DCL

      Opinions?

        Rethink Cantwell, he’s got bad fixtures. Otherwise looks good. Can’t afford TAA?
        Also... Maybe Ramsdale not the best goalie?

        1. puhd
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          I would hold on to Digne. I think he’ll do well. Has great fixtures

        2. AzzaroMax99
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 15 days ago

          Which GK would you get?
          Cantwell will be on the bench 90% od the time. If you can suggest me cheaper mid, be my guest. That is the way to get Taa also.

      Any 3,9 playing defender?
      Reid or Simpson maybe?
