Scout Notes

Everton’s budget FPL assets underline appeal but tricky fixtures lie in wait

West Ham United 1-1 Everton

  • Goals: Issa Diop (£4.4m) | Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.9m)
  • Assists: Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) | Mason Holgate (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Holgate x3, Calvert-Lewin x2, Mark Noble (£5.0m) x1

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£5.9m) rewarded his growing army of Fantasy fans with another goal in an evenly-matched encounter at the London Stadium.

The Everton striker has seen his ownership rise from 62,000 to over half a million since Gameweek 16, and he responded with his sixth strike of that run.

Chances to cash in on his form and budget price are receding, however.

The Toffees’ short-term schedule is solid enough (NEW, wat, CRY) but turns ugly after that, with Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Leicester and Spurs to play over seven brutal Gameweeks.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side fell behind when Issa Diop (£4.4m) glanced home a Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) free-kick. It was only the defender’s second-ever league goal for the Hammers, while the Scot’s delivery confirmed he is a man in form, with a goal and two assists from his last three starts.

The lead lasted just four minutes, Calvert-Lewin athletically heading in from Mason Holgate’s (£4.5m) flick-on, and chances then came and went for both sides.

Hammers striker Sebastien Haller (£7.0m) had the best opportunity for the home side, only to shoot straight at Jordan Pickford (£5.3m) from close range, while Theo Walcott (£6.2m), Calvert-Lewin and Tom Davies (£5.3m) threatened, but couldn’t convert, at the other end.

Maximum bonus points went to Holgate, who has now produced returns in four of his last six starts. His price, and 1.8% ownership, mark him out as a budget differential, but that horrible upcoming fixture list is likely to put off all but the bravest of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers.

West Ham’s assets are equally vexing, despite Gameweek 24’s double helping of matches.

Those two games are away at Leicester and home to Liverpool, and while a Gameweek 25 visit from Brighton looks appealing, the fixtures that follow are anything but: mci, liv, SOU, ars, WOL, tot, CHE.

David Moyes has brought some much-needed stability to a talented, if flaky, set of players, but one win, a draw and a defeat from his three-match tenure is hardly the classic ‘form over fixtures’ justification for investment in their assets.

Snodgrass could be the exception, having registered an attacking return in each of his last three starts.

At least rotation might not be an issue, if Moyes’ post-match comments are to be believed:

We’re a bit short on the bench at the moment, we’ve just not got loads of changes we can make just now, but I’d rather have people here who we know and who we know are going to be reliable, rather than trying people who we don’t exactly know what we’re going to get from them.

Even so, the Fantasy jury will probably remain out on West Ham’s stars, as it should do for assets from both sides until their respective fixtures ease towards the end of the season.

As for those managers already invested in the 11%-owned Richarlison (£8.1m), a return to action in the midweek match at home to Newcastle looks on the cards.

The Brazilian missed Saturday’s encounter, with Ancelotti relatively optimistic that the issue is a minor one:

His problem is on his knee, he had a little twist, but nothing special. I hope he will be available on Tuesday.

West Ham United XI (4-2-3-1): Randolph; Zabaleta, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Noble; Snodgrass, Fornals (Masuaku 60′), Lanzini (Ajeti 84′); Haller.

Everton XI (4-4-2): Pickford; Coleman, Mina, Holgate, Digne; Walcott (Sidibe 57′), Davies, Delph, Bernard (Gordon 46′); Calvert-Lewin, Kean (Niasse 74′).

Members Analysis

Newcastle United 1-0 Chelsea

  • Goals: Isaac Hayden (£4.3m)
  • Assists: Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m)
  • Bonus: Federico Fernandez (£4.4m) x3 Reece James (£5.0m) x2 Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) x1

Newcastle’s last-gasp win over Chelsea wasn’t exactly daylight robbery, but only due to the fact that the match had an early evening kick-off.

The winning goal from Isaac Hayden (£4.3m) came in the darkest depths of the 94th minute following the Magpies’ one and only corner as Frank Lampard’s side dominated possession (69.7%) and attempts (19 v 7) but failed to turn any of that into goals.

The Blues also failed to trouble home keeper Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) unduly, with just three of those 19 shots forcing him into a save.

Chief culprit was Chelsea’s most popular FPL player Tammy Abraham (£7.9m).

The 34.5%-owned striker saw the whites of Dubravka’s eyes on a couple of occasions, being unable to finish when rounding the Magpies’ shot-stopper and then seeing an apologetic effort hooked clear from inside the six-yard box as it slowly bobbled goalwards.

Lampard was at pains to deflect blame away from his profligate striker, though, saying:

We can’t absolutely rely on Tammy Abraham. We have to have goals from across the front line if we want to bridge the gap upwards. Tammy has been fantastic this season – it didn’t quite come off for him today, but that’s football.

At the other end, the goal machine (of the past few days at least), Joelinton (£5.5m), hit the bar with a header, but Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) had precious little else to do until he failed to keep out Hayden’s decisive header from Allan Saint-Maximin‘s (£5.4m) pinpoint cross.

The victory came at yet more cost, injury-wise, for Steve Bruce’s side, however.

Their latest victim was Jetro Willems (£4.6m), who had to be stretchered off with a knee problem after just 11 minutes.

The manager was less than optimistic about the defender post-match:

It looks a horrendous injury for Jetro, which is a big blow to us. We fear it’s his cruciate. We’re due a bit of luck. I’ve never known anything quite like it over the last few weeks, so we’re due.

Willems was replaced by Matt Ritchie (£5.3m), who is only just back from a long-term knee injury himself, while four defenders – and five other squad members – are now out for the foreseeable future.

Newcastle remain a tricky team to exploit, Fantasy-wise.

The six clean sheets they’ve kept puts them joint-seventh, but only five teams have conceded more than the 34 goals they’ve shipped and the 22 they’ve scored is only two more than the league’s most toothless sides, Bournemouth and Watford.

Dubravka, with 89 points, is easily the team’s most productive player, and his 91 saves is a league-leading figure.

Other than that, too many players are scoring too few points too inconsistently to promote investment, which is a shame when Newcastle have an excellent schedule all the way through to Gameweek 34.

As for Chelsea, Lampard’s reliance on youth is, perhaps, starting to bite him.

They’ve experienced two defeats in their last three home matches and have had a curious stretch of away games in which they’ve won at Arsenal and Spurs, but only drawn at Brighton and now lost to Newcastle.

Their immediate schedule involves three home matches in the next four games, but those will be against Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs, with their one road trip taking them to Leicester.

That is unlikely to inspire purchases of their key players, at least until Gameweek 28, when their fixtures improve immeasurably for the rest of the season.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dubravka; Krafth (S Longstaff 71′), Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Willems (Ritchie 12′); Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey (M Longstaff 84′), Saint-Maximin; Joelinton.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Kepa; James (Emerson 75′), Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Kante, Jorginho; Hudson-Odoi, Mount (Barkley 67′), Willian; Abraham (Batshuayi 80′).

        I rather have Holgate and or Dunk in there somewhere for my cheapies but I wasnt getting value from Soy.

  8. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 1 hour ago

    A or B?

    A) Grealish and Rashford to Mane and Greenwood
    B) KDB and Rashford to Mane and DCL

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Probably A

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year

    3. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Dont like either
      Dont like losing KDB or Grealish. I think they stay till the end.

    • 5 Years
    1 month, 1 hour ago

    Similar questions to everyone else.

    Basically I have Salah/TAA. I can go Robbo, Mane or Firmino all for free. The right combo essential becuase Liverpool's fixtures are incredible for for the next 9 GWs!

    Ryan
    TAA Soy Lund Kelly Rico
    Salah KDB Maddison Traore Dendonker
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    A) Rashford/Maddison > Greenwood/Mane
    B) Rashford/Kelly > Maupay or DCL / Robbo
    C) Rashford > Firmino and then save or look for something else.

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      A to, think we need Mane

      1. bigbudgie

              His form has been poor, besic is starting to threaten his place and fleck seems the more attacking mid recently. But I understand

      TAA, Söyüncü, Lord
      Salah, Mane, KDB, Grealish
      Vardy, Ings, DCL

      But I’m going to do a -4 after DGW and do
      Söyüncü, Mane & DCL
      To
      Robertson, Traoré & Aubameyang

      So yeah. Not sure what advice that gives

    6. Lindelol
      • 1 Year

      thanks all. Just Pressed the WC button

  12. bigdip
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 1 hour ago

    Trying to bring in Mane for DGW:
    GK: Ryan (Button)
    DEF: TAA,Gomez, Targett, (Lundy, Kelly)
    MID: RICHARLISON, KDB, Son, Martial, Grealish
    FWD: Vardy Ings (DCL)

    0 FT, mn, 2.9mn ITB

    KDB -> Mane for -4 hit?

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Well that's pretty much your only option, I'd say 60% yes, City with SHU away from home. But who knows with Kevin

    2. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Sounds risky, KDB could be rested though.

      1. bigdip
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 1 hour ago

        or should I WC?

        1. Royal5
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          Nah. Your team looks very good apart from no Mane.

          1. bigdip
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 1 hour ago

            so I should take the -4 hit to bring in Mane for KDB?

            1. Royal5
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 1 hour ago

              I'd do it if I didn't have a whole lot of money tied up iKdb

      I brought in B last week. Disappointed already. Thought about DCL, but now I am thinking of using 2 ft next week to bring Jiminez in instead. I wouldn't get Ayew.

      A but can you change Rico for a different defender?

    4. AicilaXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      A. Would want Mane for fixtures, and city have poor fixtures/aguero is rotation risk.

      Rico/Jiminez not ideal though.

  18. thepuntmaster

    Anyone tempted by Lucas?

    Playing centrally isn't he? Norwich at home next.

    1. Royal5
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Could work I guess. Spurs not scoring goals atm though.

    2. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Form is poor, Spurs not great. Canaries unlikely to improve him that much.

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year

      I'm a bit worried he'll be dropped due to being rubbish.

      1. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 hour ago

        Good enough reason really 🙂

      2. Royal5
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 1 hour ago

        Dropped for who? Lamela was horrible in the last game.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          Son up front maybe, Sessegnon left wing?

          1. Royal5
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 1 hour ago

            Think Lucas will start. He's useless against teams playing deep. Norwich on the other hand he could be useful on the counter.

    4. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      His job seems to be chaser of ball

    5. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      In the last 20-25 min or so, Son moved to central striker position with Moura on the left. I'm not sure if it was tactical or Mourinho couldn't take it anymore as he was pretty awful in the striker role.

    Questions for those who have had success lately...

    1.Have you been moving on players quickly instead of giving them 2 chances?

    2. Any punts?

    3. Looking more or less into transfers?

    1. Would Ed Woodward

    Sometimes you really have to go hard or delete your team, KdB, Sarr, Abraham > Mane, Moura, Haller (-8)

      ??? Sounds insane tbh

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 hour ago

      Haller makes me feel ill... Fixtures are so poor, forcing yourself a transfer down the line and West ham ain't on form. Also not sure on losing KDB

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 1 hour ago

        He'd be going after next week.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 1 hour ago

          Exactly. And it's not like he has a decent fixture. 6 points max

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 1 hour ago

            Burnley scored twice against Leic, Ndidi will still be out, Antonio back, that's my thinking for that game anyway, the other is.....2 appearance points.

      No. I’d need to see something from Haller before considering. Right now he doesn’t even have a pulse.

    Before Rico price fall worth transferring him out for Williams or keep and play home to Brighton?

    1. Freshy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That team is so poor.
      Im keeping as fodder in case they turn it around

      I'd be making more than 4 changes on a WC unless you're really happy

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Agree

  25. Patrick.22

    Just played my WC.. given me this:

    McCarthy / Hendo
    TAA / Robbo / Lund / Williams / Tanganga
    Mane / KDB / Grealish / Traore / Fleck
    Aguero / Vardy / Ings

    Means I can no longer play the TC but I’m happy with my team moving forward. Will also give me the TC chip as a differential later on. Early WC paid off before so here’s hoping again! I had too many changes to make

      Lovely. Not sure Mccarthy is necessary. I'd prefer hendo set and forget with money itb. Baldock over Lund would also tempt me... Maybe Douc over Traore due to fixtures
