Southampton struggle to capitalise on possession but Ings delivers again

Southampton 1-2 Burnley

Goals: Danny Ings (£7.0m) | Ashley Westwood (£5.4m), Matej Vydra (£5.3m)

Assists: Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m)

Bonus Points: Vydra x3, Westwood x2, Ings x1

Danny Ings (£7.0m) continued to reward his Fantasy Premier League owners by scoring his 15th goal of the season for Southampton in their Gameweek 26 lunch-time meeting with Burnley.

In a round of action that saw Jamie Vardy (£9.8m), Raul Jimenez (£7.7m), Troy Deeney (£6.2m) and Neal Maupay (£5.8m) all register blanks, Ings remains a model of consistency as his ownership continues to rise.

While Southampton themselves struggled to do enough to beat Burnley, their number-one centre-forward’s efforts were sufficient to inspire further investment ahead of appealing fixtures.

Admittedly, Ings was not at the forefront of the Saints’ attack on Saturday afternoon, as they found themselves enjoying almost obscene levels of possession (68.1%) without much creativity or end-product to show for it. Nathan Redmond (£6.2m) was a particular miss for them, who looks set to be out for at least a month.

In the end, Ings did not offer much in the penalty area but scored an incredible goal from outside of it. After a one-two with Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) broke down, the striker picked up the loose ball, ran along the edge of the box and, on the half-turn, rifled a curled shot deep into the bottom corner of Nick Pope‘s (£4.7m) net.

Originally, Ings was on for maximum bonus points but a second-half winner for Matej Vydra (£5.3m) was enough to bring him down to just one. However, it is still an impressive achievement that 14 of Ings’ 15 league goals have been combined by at least one FPL bonus point this season.

Either way, with three goals in his last six outings, Sergio Aguero (£12.1m) the only forward with more during that period (six), upcoming matches against Aston Villa (home), West Ham (away), Newcastle (home) and Norwich (away) are perfect fixtures to help Ings continue his form.

Westwood scored direct from a corner against Southampton

However, those investing in Southampton’s defence may not be as happy with Ings as his actual owners were. That’s because the centre-forward was the culprit for Burnley’s opening goal, registered inside the first two minutes at the St Mary’s Stadium.

Arguably, there was not much that Fantasy managers could have legislated for with the strike. It was certainly a “freak” goal, but there was no influence from the blustery conditions on this occasion. Instead, the fault could be firmly placed at the door of Ings and, perhaps to a slightly lesser extent, Alex McCarthy (£4.4m).

Ashley Westwood’s (£5.4m) corner arrived at the front-post with some whip but Southampton’s in-form striker opted to swerve his body out of the way, presumably because he assumed it was going wide. That allowed the ball to dip over the line, which goalkeeper McCarthy was also standing behind.

Southampton defenders all lost an additional point in the second half when Vydra netted his aforementioned goal in the second half. Completely against the run of play, the former Reading man chested down a fantastic forward ball from Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m), toed it around debutant Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) and fired it back across goal into the top corner.

Jack Stephens in action against Chris Wood

Despite that, with Southampton’s fixtures still looking attractive over the next four Gameweeks, it seems too soon to pull the plug on investing in their defence.

As already mentioned, there was an element of misfortune for the Saints as they conceded the first, while the quality of Vydra’s second-half strike is not necessarily something they will face every week. After all, it was the player’s first goal for 17 months.

Outside of those two moments, Burnley offered very little all afternoon, and the fact that the Clarets scored twice and took all three points did not tally with how the game played out.

Perhaps one concern for investors of Southampton defenders, particularly those in possession of Jan Bednarek (£4.4m) was a rare start, and poor performance, from Jannik Vestergaard (£4.6m). That meant Polish international Bednarek missed out on a place in the starting XI at home for the first time season.

Vestergaard did not have the best of games for Southampton

Vestergaard’s introduction into the team turned out not to be on account of his height with manager Hasenhüttl claiming he wanted to use the player’s superior ability when in possession of the ball.

“(Asked about Vestergaard coming in for Bednarek) It’s about having more possession today and Jannik is calmer (on the ball). They are defenders, that’s the most important thing, but we have different solutions on the ball.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Despite Hasenhüttl’s praise, Vestergaard looked less than confident on the ball and Burnley’s rare glimpses of threat tended to come whenever possession moved towards the Danish centre-back. He was caught out twice in the first half, misplaced several passes and gave up the ball directly to Westwood in a dangerous area in the 33rd minute, who was able to feed Vydra for an effort on goal. Vestergaard was arguably at fault for Burnley’s winner too as he allowed Vydra to turn him and find the space to shoot. Bednarek owners will be hoping he can reclaim his spot at the first attempt when Aston Villa come to St. Mary’s in Gameweek 27.

The more secure option in Southampton’s defence, and the best performer in their backline against Burnley, continues to be Jack Stephens (£4.4m). The former Plymouth Argyle man was an important asset to the Saints at both ends of the pitch, heading a first-half Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) cross against the bar as well as making some exciting marauding runs forward. In the second half, Stephens could have won Southampton a penalty as he carried to ball forward into the Burnley penalty area, his cross cut out by the arm of Ben Mee (£5.0m), which was deemed by VAR not to be in an unnatural position.

Sean Dyche’s men were, of course, not helped in their offensive efforts by the enforced withdrawal of an injured Chris Wood (£6.3m) in the first half. While Ings continued to reward his owners, it was a different story for those using the New Zealand international as a differential option. Wood came into Gameweek 26 with more attacking returns (four) in his previous six outings than Ings (three), but his afternoon was cut short after just 22 minutes. Wood was forced off with a hamstring injury.

“Chris Wood has got a hamstring [problem]. We’re happy he got off quick and could feel it early. We’ll wait and see. I don’t think it’s bad.” – Sean Dyche

Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Bertrand, Vestergaard, J Stephens, Walker-Peters (Obafemi 73′); Boufal (Djenepo 38′), Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; S Long (Adams 86′), Ings.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Westwood, Cork, Hendrick; Rodriguez, Wood (Vydra 21′).

    Would you do KDB > Mane for 1FT?

      Yes.

        Yeah it really does feel like it, doesn't it? If I remember correctly, there's been one or two GWs this season that have had the lowest scoring "Dream Team" in a long long while. Heard it on a FPL show before Christmas.

      Hope the break isn’t done like this in the future, but TV greed suggests it sticks.

      They may put something provisional in, but even then we won't know until 28 if it is definite

        it must have really struck a cord gav… to make you comment on here 🙂

          Haha, not really.

          I don’t read the forums much, but was having a quick scan.

          I’m having decent week, above the top 10k average and on for a decent green arrow.

          I haven’t posted my score because no one knows who I am or cares about it.

          These sort of posts just clog up the forums which is why I doubt I’ll read them or comment on them again in a hurry. A shame as there is often good info to be had.

          1. Fantasy Gold

            Exactly Gav.

            Who gives a shite about some random’s score.

            It’s totally irrelevant.

              In fairness maybe I should have reeled in my sarcastic tone and aimed to post something useful and interesting!!

              So 99k then?

  9. Yome

    Nice to enjoy Mane points. Tissues for those who sold him after his injury.

    1. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Well he hasn’t played for a while so selling for Son for example was justified.

    2. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Enjoy. Iv’e enjoyed my 86 points from Salah in the past 3 GW’s, so save those tissues mate. We dont need them

    3. TakingTheMkhi
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Why the tissues if he only just got 5 points. Salah got 30 points from 2 games whilst Mane was injured.

    4. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Really not tbh. Salah has been in great form. It’s one match. Both will continue to be good picks. Both likely to be too much as the season gets wrapped up imo

    5. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year

      LOL 5 points

  10. Bookkeeper

    Any chance Kun benched?

    1. Miniboss
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Possibly, but even then likely to come on and haul

    3. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      almost inevitable

    4. Fantasy Gold

      No chance at all

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’m assuming as a non owner that he will mega haul on Wednesday

    6. BigBillyBass

      Yes he will be

      gotta be looking @ 28 with KDB Grealish Fleck & Auba

      Fleck obvious option to go but not much £££ to play with. Cantwell or Jorginho maybe?

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years

        Definitely the main one i’m looking at losing, purely to save losing a FT. Cantwell definitely an option

    I’m the average bloke off the street here to create some balance amongst all the people posting things like “I’m on 50 with only (K)un, KDB, Son and Grealish to go, will this be a red?”

    I’m on 43 (-4) with only KDB, Martial and Grealish to go. Expecting a Kun haul and a sizeable red arrow.

    Onwards and upwards baby

        Lol. Tbh it’s bang average now but by Wednesday I expect it to be a red. I expected this GW to be a wet blanket tbh

        1. Fantasy Gold
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          You’ve got 3 players to go and an above average score....

          Seriously, what is wrong with people on here 😆

            Guess (personally) I get fed up of not getting anywhere this season but I should count myself lucky it’s at least not down!

            How’s your week going?

            1. Fantasy Gold
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 14 days ago

              106 with 5 to go including captain.

              Quite disappointed in myself.

                Awful. Just awful.

                My original post was meant to be tongue in cheek but quite enjoying how it’s winding people up 😆

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

      15 below average here with 21 with 4 to go. Aguero could save my GW but dropped 50k so far.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I think he may well save your week mate

    Vardy likely to drop, is anyone transferring Aguero to Vardy in gw 28?

    1. ManUnitedComeBack
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Either Vardy or Abraham depending on whether Chelsea have the DGW in 29. And in my case it's Auba out instead of Aguero

    Robbo was outstanding today. Absolutely essential

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      12 pointer imminent.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      He’s long overdue a monster haul

      Hopefully GW27!

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      for?

      I've both & keeping id say. Vardy from 28 looks great
      DCL doing great & playing Arsenal. was close on DCL to Ings

      1. Nightf0x
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Jimmy

    2. Andy Ftw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Im probs leaning dcl -> jimmy because of fixtures

      1. Nightf0x
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Thats what im supposed to dobut vardy not convincing at all

  20. Manani
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    did the Mane to VVD swap last week so can't really complain here

    1. Marvin de Milo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Same here. Such is life.

  21. ManUnitedComeBack
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    It's going to be a tough decision on which third Pool player to go with alongside TAA and Salah for the next four GWs: Mane, Robbo or VVD.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Trent, Robbo, Mane.

      1. liverpool01
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yep have the same trio

      2. ManUnitedComeBack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        That might be an ideal three but I'm already holding Trent and Salah so it'll come down to Robbo/VVD or Mane.

        1. liverpool01
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 14 days ago

          I would probably go for Mane if I was you, tough choice for you but can't go wrong either way.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Agree. Tonight’s result makes in even harder. Clean sheet but also a Mané goal

  22. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Kun+Mahrez >> Ings/Jimenez+Mané for free? Which striker if so? Thanks guys 🙂

    McCarthy
    TAA • Lunds • Aurier
    KDB • Salah • Grealish • Mahrez • Traoré
    Kun • Vardy
    (McGov. Rico. Soy. Greenwood)

    1. Stormbringer22
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Definitely I would say. Like Ings better due to fixtures

  23. Lindelol
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Double pool defence or salah + mane?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      both good options obviously.

      depends what you do with the cash

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Hendo
        TAA • Holgate • stephens • lund • lascelles
        KDB • Salah • Grealish • Son • dendo
        Ings • Vardy • DCL

        3.7 itb

        1. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          tidy team that... I'd nearly say go double defence.

          but shur it'll all change depending on blanks & doubles

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I'm on double attack but I'm really not sure which is best

    3. Blunder fc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      double defense, 5 million extra to spend and you can only captain one of salah or mane

  24. kennethrhcp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Gamble on Lundstram starting this week... it allows me to buy in Traore for Dendonker & bench Maddison vs City?

    Or sell Lundstram & start Maddison vs City

  25. FDMS All Starz
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Yay or nay?

    Kun & Martial ——> Jimenez & Mane (-4)

    Team:

    Ryan
    TAA - Taylor - Lunds
    Salah - Martial - Kdb - Son
    DCL - Ings - Kun

    Subs: Button-Cathcart-Soy-Romeu

  26. Bury94
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Can someone explain to me why I still haven't owned Ings at any point this season?

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Due an injury.

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      You're a fool?

      1. Bury94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        This is probably the most logical reason

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Same reason I only brought in Vardy just before he turned crap.

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

      Yeah it's similiar to my Vardyless season.
      There is always that one player that eludes one's team.

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      you're not alone... 🙁

    5. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Injury prone and getting lucky goals or gifts..

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

        Nothing lucky about that goal today.

        Quality

      2. GreennRed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        He's quality. Top dog in a team playing well.

  27. JohnRoss
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This Liverpool defence is killing me in my mini leagues. It's death from a 1000 cuts...

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Who cut JR.

      1. JohnRoss
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Cliff Barnes. Never mind the Sun.

  28. QUEN
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 14 days ago

    KWP. Worth getting in?

    Need to get rid of kelly, have Lascelles robo soy Trent

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      If going there, I’d get Stephens.

      Looked very attacking & dangerous today, and not just at set pieces.

  29. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Robbo TAA Salah the right LFC trio or?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Mane, Salah. TAA

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

      Yeah for this week..

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Gomez, TAA and Salah/Mane

    4. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Salah Mane TAA ppg, if you can afford them

  30. Woy_is_back
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    I think Pool defence is still the way to go even with that Mane goal. They will likely win a lot of games 1/2-0 and overkill to have a lot of your budget invested in both Salah & Mane

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

      *double

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      It’s a very tricky call. The reins might come off once the league is won and they could win 3-4 nil

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Completely agree!

    4. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Gonna be tricky to work out when to get rid of firmino (which was a good choice and has performed since rashford got injured). Two FTs just to rejig the LIV players

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      This was whispered before Pool DGW. 2 priciest players in FPL, huge chance that only one of them hauls in a game leaving 12m which could be spread around more evenly to other club's mids. But more exaggerated now that they're banking clean sheets.
