Watford’s cut-price FPL attacking assets impress as budget defence holds strong

Bournemouth 0-3 Watford

  • Goals: Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m), Troy Deeney (£6.2m), Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m)
  • Assists: Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m), Doucoure, Andre Gray (£5.6m)
  • Bonus: Doucoure x3, Deeney x2, Adam Masina (£4.3m), Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) x1

Two teams that started Gameweek 22 in the relegation zone and one point apart met at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, with Watford running out comfortable 3-0 winners.

There is a stark contrast between the two clubs at present.

The Hornets are revitalised under Nigel Pearson, losing just one of the six matches that he has overseen (away to Liverpool), and several of their players appeal from a Fantasy Premier League perspective.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, are in a real rut and even some favourable fixtures in the next five Gameweeks won’t be enough for many FPL bosses to revisit the Cherries.

Eddie Howe’s side had begun fairly brightly against their visitors this weekend, with Dominic Solanke (£5.2m) almost pouncing on a mishit Adam Smith (£4.3m) shot and Harry Wilson (£5.9m) forcing Ben Foster (£4.9m) into a flying save with one of his trademark free-kicks.

That turned out to be Bournemouth’s only attempt on target in the entire match and, once Watford had broken the deadlock five minutes before the interval, the hosts’ self-belief visibly ebbed away.

Howe acknowledged that confidence was at a low after full-time, saying:

The first goal going in damaged us mentally and we didn’t recover. Confidence is such an important thing to any team and it just felt it was lacking from that goal onwards, it seemed to dent us.

It’s certainly not what we wanted and the performance wasn’t what we wanted either.

We can only regroup, learn from what we’ve delivered, analyse the game properly and improve. We need to rediscover our belief in the team. For me, that’s the only thing missing because we’ve got good players.

Bournemouth’s early pressure was more of a mild breeze than a full-blown storm but once Watford had comfortably seen off the Cherries’ handful of first-half forays into their final third, they began to kick on.

The Hornets are not just well-structured at the back, they are oozing confidence further forward.

The in-form Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) had already fired a warning shot across the Bournemouth bows early on when breaking clear of Nathan Ake (£4.8m) and fizzing the ball wide, and it was the Senegal international who teed up Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m) for Watford’s opening goal in the 41st minute.

While that attacking return owed a debt to Mark Travers‘ (£4.2m) awful pass out, Sarr was a threat all match and could have had added to his assist.

The Senegalese winger had a shot deflected over on 50 minutes and then spurned a glorious chance soon after, miscuing a volleyed effort from six yards after a weak headed clearance.

He was heavily involved in Watford’s second goal, too, with his run and attempted cross for Doucoure falling kindly for Troy Deeney (£6.2m) to hammer home just after the hour-mark.

Sarr now has five attacking returns to his name in as many Gameweeks, a total that only Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) can trump among FPL midfielders.

He’s not the only appealing option in this Watford side.

Deeney has four goals to his name since Pearson took charge, while Doucoure has banked four attacking returns in the last three Gameweeks.

Doucoure has flirted with Fantasy managers since his arrival in the Premier League (at least ten attacking returns in each of the last two seasons) and he is certainly thriving in an advanced number ten role, looking more comfortable than he did when stationed further back under Javi Gracia and Quique Sanchez Flores.

Pearson revealed afterwards that Doucoure has been playing through the pain barrier:

He’s not trained this week, he had a fitness test on Saturday, so he’s been playing with discomfort for a while and it was touch and go whether he played.

But he’s a very resilient lad and his demeanour’s been very positive. He was desperate to play, but he’s only played today because of conversations that we, as coaching staff, had had with the medical staff to make sure we understand what the risks are.

Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) was the only one of Watford’s front four to blank on Sunday but he has been chipping in with goals and assists of late too and could have had further returns this weekend, forcing Travers into a save at his near post early on and slicing wide when the Hornets broke at pace midway through the second half.

Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m) rounded off the scoring in stoppage time, volleying in the rebound after fellow substitute Andre Gray (£5.6m) had been denied.

At the back, Foster collected his fourth clean sheet in seven Gameweeks but was scarcely troubled in the away goal.

Bournemouth have scored a miserable seven goals in 15 league matches and there will seldom be easier shut-outs than this but Pearson deserves credit for his work with the Hornets, with hitherto unconvincing options such as Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) and Adam Masina (£4.3m) solid at full-back on Sunday.

Those two players picked up bonus points to go with their clean sheets, although the likes of Kiko Femenia (£4.2m) and Daryl Janmaat (£4.1m) are still to return from injury and it remains to be seen who Pearson favours when all of his defensive options are available.

Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) is due back from suspension at centre-half in Gameweek 23, meanwhile, with Craig Cathcart (£4.3m) looking about as nailed an option among those playing in front of Foster in the medium-term.

Reflecting on the game, Pearson said:

There have been times when we’ve played some really good football and won games and then today was an example of having to show quite a bit of resilience and game understanding, but also using our quality when we could and I thought our counter-attacking situations were really good.

We created a lot of chances, we defended set plays with an incredible desire to keep the ball out of the net, and we needed to.

It’s a great result for us, but we have to keep our focus from here on in.

As for the Cherries, they sit second-top of our Season Ticker over the next five Gameweeks – but who would back their FPL assets at present?

As well as scoring at a rate of 0.47 goals per match over the last 15 Gameweeks, Howe’s troops have kept one clean sheet in 11 league fixtures.

Their most-owned FPL asset, Diego Rico (£4.4m) was dropped to the bench for this one, while goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) missed out through injury.

Howe at least had the consolation of welcoming Ake and Smith back from recent lay-offs and afterwards said that Ramsdale’s issue wasn’t too serious:

He went to catch a ball yesterday in training and just felt something. I don’t think it’s serious, I think it is very minor but it was enough to see him miss today.

Callum Wilson‘s (£7.4m) own FPL form mirrors his team’s and he is without an attacking return since Gameweek 7, with the mid-price FPL forward having few chances to get on the scoresheet this weekend.

The upcoming fixtures might be better than Watford’s (the Hornets are towards the bottom of our Season Ticker in the medium-term) but Bournemouth’s horrendous form is surely more of a factor at present.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Travers; Smith, Francis, S. Cook, Ake; Gosling (L. Cook 59′), Lerma (Billing 59′); H. Wilson (Surridge 75′), Fraser; Solanke, C. Wilson.

Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Mariappa, Dawson, Cathcart, Masina; Chalobah, Capoue; Sarr (Pereyra 83′), Doucoure (Quina 86′), Deulofeu (Gray 90′); Deeney.

    Which GK under 5.0m is the best option? Will likely be keeping whoever I bring in until my second WC which I usually play around GW33/34.

    A) Ryan - Great fixtures and makes plenty of saves but Brighton are never really reliable for a CS
    B) Foster - Watford in great form
    C) Leno - Arsenal looking tighter under Arteta; fixtures reasonable and nobody has their defence in FPL, a decent differential? Also historically racks up the save points

    Alli > Rich, Fab > Mccarthy for 2 FT to give below? Or just hold off on GK FT & play Hendo away to Gunners keeling 2 FT?

      Thought Alli was due 😛
      See how Spurs do midweek.
      The Pool vs United game is messy for your team.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

        4 days, 22 hours ago

        That's why I'm not sure on selling Alli! But the Jose effect seems to be getting even stronger with each passing game... Watford are so well drilled now too

        I think utd will score, and Rash will be involved so him & Martial might be ok

        The back three have netted 44 points in the last 2 GW's but even if they do concede vs utd attacking returns are always a possibility at every set piece (and from play!)

        1. TorresMagic™

          Alli's haul probably comes vs Norwich so you'd have got rid anyway.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            That would be standard FPL operating procedure for sure in the event of a sale

        I also must day I love your photographic memory for predictions and comments that members have made TM, it's always so optimistic & positive 🙂

        Maybe it will soon start to cover correct predictions as well 😉

    Early thoughts on benching one defender and one attacker?

    Dunk(AVL) Soy(bur) Lund(ars)
    Cantwell(BOU) Sarr(TOT) Rash(liv) DCL(wh)

    Cheers

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      I’d bench Soy and Sarr

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      Lundy & Sarr both may not start - Pearson almost lifted Sarr of the ground coming off the pitch for not acknowledging him & Lundy was poor & hooked for Besic...

      Both very tough to bench too though

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 22 hours ago

        Sarr will start, he created both goals. Might not be 100% fit though after Pearson has set him straight with a quiet word or two.

    3. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Cantwell
      Soy

        I wouldn’t bench anyone playing Bournemouth atm

      I think Villa and Arsenal will both score mate. Though I personally would be happier benching Lundstram.
      I'd hate to bench any of your attacking players if I'm honest. Removing prices from the equation it would probably be Rashford. Though it just doesn't seem an option despite playing Liverpool. Just can't see Liverpool conceding at the minute despite Rashford's form. Cantwell was Norwich's best attacking outlet at the weekend so has to play

    6. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      I transferred Dunk in to bench Lundstram. He is very unlikely to haul now imo. Expect him to get 0-2pts tbh.

    7. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Lundstram and DCL

  4. sovietrockettes
    • 1 Year
    4 days, 22 hours ago

    Is anybody keeping both Rashford and Martial for Liverpool away? If so, please explain how you can rationalize this decision.

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      I am as will keep for longer term, you never know, both could score in a goal fest.

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        4 days, 22 hours ago

        Doesn’t feel like a goalfest though

        1. Make America Greta Again
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 22 hours ago

          Look at the Everton Derby, I feel the Pool defensive bubble will burst.

          1. Dr. Agabuse
            • 7 Years
            4 days, 21 hours ago

            The cup game that they won 1-0 with the kids?

            1. Squeakybum99
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 days, 21 hours ago

              No the 5-2 or whatever it was in the league.

    2. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      ManU might be an inconsistent side, this season they did quite well in the 'big games', except for arsenal. They have beaten Chelsea, Spurs and City and played 1-1 vs liverpool at home. I can only see liverpool win the match, but Rashford might be in his best form ever and Martial is finally fit and playing OOP.

      Besides that, the biggest reason is you have to think long term. They are both great value and play Burnley at home the next week.

  5. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years
    4 days, 22 hours ago

    Lundy first sub and Sarr second methinks

    1. TorresMagic™

  6. davies
    • 5 Years

    From next week onwards...

    A) Rashford
    B) Martial + 4 points

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      A

    2. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      A, but depends what you can do with extra 1.3m that Martial allows

      1. davies
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        See below

    3. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      This is Rashford's breakout season. He will outscore Martial imo

    4. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      B because 1.3+

      1. davies
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        What would you do with it?

        McCarthy Martin
        TAA Lundstram Soyuncu Rico Kelly
        Salah Mane KDB Martial Grealish
        Vardy Ings Greenwood

        Bare in mind 2FT’s are rare to upgrade bench players...

  7. kuzser
    • 2 Years
    4 days, 22 hours ago

    What couple will score more in gw 24?

    1) Firmino (wh,wolves) and Alli (NOR)
    2) Salah (wh, wolves) and Maupay (bou)
    3) Robbo (wh, wolves) and Martial (BUR)

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      2

    2. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 22 hours ago

      1, I'd say, but I'll take my chances on TC Mo.

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 22 hours ago

        Illusion.

        Thats MO twice

      Can't believe i fell in that trap. Mourinho can't even park a bus with this spurs team. And to top it off i went Gazza > Fabianski last gw 🙁 Good thing i already had martin as bench keeper.

    How to get Mane in this team?
    1ft 0.2 itb

    Pope/McGovern

    Rico Lundy Taa digne balbuena

    Kdb mahrez Salah Mount Cantwell

    Vardy Haller Abraham

    Plan is to save FT this week

    1) Would you sacrifice Vardy and Mahrez - Mane and Maupay

    2) Or take out KDB and Mount - Mane and filler.

    3) Or go without Mane and do Vardy-Firminho

    4) or Digne-Robertson and Mount-Snoddy

    5) something else?

    Afraid of going into DGW without Mane 🙁

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Are you gonna captain Mané in the DGW?

      1. fantasyxprt11
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        That is the plan is yes if I bring him in. He does better in away games than Salah.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 21 hours ago

          Vardy to Ings and then upgrade a mid.

          Personally I think there is more value in the Pool defence double up.

    2. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      If you insist on Mané i think you need to ditch Vardy (or another big hitter, but you won't like to). Maybe Vardy and Mount > Greenwood and Mané. But you'll need some more cash so a -4 with that i think.

      To be honest i wouldn't do that myself. 3) looks better, or if you want to be different even Mount > Fleck, Pope > Alisson as this involves losing your 2 'worst' players

  13. Le Bluff
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 days, 21 hours ago

    Ismaïla Sarr looking like more and more of an option every week.

    His Shots Heatmap is incredible.

    Can't quite fit him into my team (have Grealish) but do people think he and Watford will keep this up? Fixtures are okay short-term but not so good longer-term.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      If only he was more clinical.

          Keeping Vardy though, not that brave

    3. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      I just did Alli > Sarr so i can get in my 3rd pool player next week. He'll be my fourth midfielder, and i'll play fleck when sarr has a really tough matchup. It was between him and Grealish but after last gw my mind was made up quite quickly

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Why sell Tammy? Has Newcastle next.

    Need to get rid of Fabianski and Martial. Which is the best replacement duo?

    A) Foster & Doucouré
    B) McCarthy & Sarr

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      B, or maybe even McCarthy & Doucoure
      I did McCarthy & Mahrez

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        Can’t afford Kun if I do the latter. So you prefer McCarthy to Foster? Interesting

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 21 hours ago

          Because of the price!

          1. JabbaWookiee
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 21 hours ago

            I get that. But Watford are a different beast defensively now with Pearson. So it’s not as clear cut for me. Mind you 0.6 is a lot...

      • 2 Years

      B, but why do you need to get rid of Martial?

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        To afford Aguero

  19. Woy_is_back

    Gotta love all the casual bringing in Mahrez 😀

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      *casuals

    2. fantasyxprt11
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      He does have 16 attacking returns in 18 appearances

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        Yeah but Pep

    3. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Risky but he returns whenever he plays(feels like at least).
      Second time I bring him in for the season. Fingers crossed.

      1. Woy_is_back
        • 2 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        A lot of money on the bench when he doesnt play, or Short cameo

        1. in sane in de bruyne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 21 hours ago

          Thought I would give it two weeks at least. Could be regretting it, I know.

    4. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Brought him in twice this season already. 🙂 Not going for the third. That would make me really stupid, or maybe really casual. 🙂

    5. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Held him this season for only 3 games and he didn't play a single minute:( think he has double digit returns in half his 90min games

    Is Tanganga a centre back or right back?

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Either

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        Cheers. Much attacking intent from right back from him?

        1. Coys96
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 21 hours ago

          No, none. Went to game so could analyse pretty well. Played in a 442 with Tanganga playing in RB and Aurier as a wing back. Don't think Tanganga even went into Liverpool's half once!

          1. GreennRed
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 21 hours ago

            Cheers. From what I read he did well. Lovely fodder price if he could be nailed on.

    Snodgrass too much of a punt?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Would wait until after the Everton game to deicide on Wham mid

    2. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Yeah i think so, doesn't start as much as you'd want him to

    3. Monkey Hanger
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Not for me. Only 5.2 with a DGW coming up. Punt away.

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        This

    4. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      If you have a spare transfer and someone else you don't like sure. Otherwise i'd pass.

  25. Coys96
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    Doucoure in 35 games as Attacking mid. 11 goals and 2 assists.

    That's impressive, could be a bargain at 5.6

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      4 games, 3 goals, 1 assist this season.

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      According to Talksport there a while ago is playing as No. 10 under Pearson. Definitely worth a look.

      1. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 21 hours ago

        Kind of playing the Yaya role
        Always liked him as a player

    Any brave souls holding on to Alli for the (relatively) “good fixtures”?

    1. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Keeping for NOR (Probably)

    2. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Needed cash for my third liverpool player. But i respect those who can hold out, despite spurs being awful he still got a big chance last 2 gw's anyway. Looked like he played forward vs pool too, until the endfase when he was dropping a bit deeper to assist rather than score himself.

    3. kuzser
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Here I am! Keen to get Firmino as a 3rd pool and then do Firmino Alli-> Salah Maupay

  28. Ready Player One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any consideration out there for TC TAA for the double GW??

    Historically Defenders have come out on top (Laporte x2 last season)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Plenty will I'm sure.

    2. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      I’m tempted. It’s him or Salah

  29. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 10 Years
    4 days, 21 hours ago

    Any Vardy & Martial owners considering selling Vardy to raise DGW funds over Rashford

    BUR WOL over that and the next gw

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Leicester have good fixtures too. Kinda tempting but at the same time not all that appealing.

  30. stupendous
    • 7 Years
    4 days, 21 hours ago

    Anyone messing with any West Ham for double? Not worth it is it?

    You'd then have Brighton at home before likely removing anyone before City and Pool again both away

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      Fabi.... no.

    2. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      I have Cresswell so May play him

      Other than that, probably not

    3. Jekori
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 21 hours ago

      messing sounds like the right word. I've got Fab (martin) so might as well stick with them now
