Traore owners left with more questions as Doherty and Jota haul again

Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m), Serge Aurier (£5.0m) | Matt Doherty (£6.2m), Diogo Jota (£6.3m), Raul Jimenez (£8.0m)
  • Assists: Dele Alli (£8.3m) x2 | Doherty, Jota
  • Bonus: Jota x3, Doherty x2, Jimenez x1

After successive benchings in the Premier League, Adama Traore (£5.9m) returned to the Wolverhampton Wanderers starting XI on Sunday as Nuno Espirito Santo switched back to a 3-4-3 for the trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

The winger was his usual bustling self and unsettled the Spurs backline at times but again ended up without an attacking return (his seventh blank in nine Gameweeks), leaving owners of the sixth-most-popular Fantasy Premier League midfielder with plenty to ponder ahead of Gameweek 29.

Security of starts is the obvious concern, with Traore having been the makeweight when Santo revisited a 3-5-2 recently. Should the Wolves boss continue to flip-flop between formations, then anticipating when and how regularly Traore gets a start becomes difficult.

Santo even hinted at the downsides of a 3-4-3 after the game, saying:

The moment we put Leander (Dendoncker) on the pitch, I think we were more balanced and the spaces were not there.

I was not very pleased at half-time because we didn’t start the game well. We gave too much ball to Tottenham. Tottenham have such quality players, we were unbalanced and it’s always very difficult.

Then there are the ongoing fitness problems.

Traore had picked up a calf injury before the winter break but it’s the Spain under-21 international’s shoulder that seems to be the main cause for concern, with the former Middlesbrough man again suffering a dislocation (his third in the space of a few months) on Sunday.

While the joint was swiftly popped back into place and the winger – briefly – stayed on the field, the recurring issue is becoming a cause for concern for his manager and the question of corrective surgery is one that might have to be considered at some point down the line.

Santo said after full-time:

Again, he dislocated [his shoulder]. It happened before. I’m worried about him. He struggles with it, it’s a lot of pain. He’s a strong boy but he suffers, like everybody else.

While Traore’s troubles drag on, the rest of the Wolves side are filling their boots with FPL points.

There was to be no clean sheet for Santo’s troops this weekend, with a run of three successive shut-outs coming to an end just 12 minutes into the clash in north London.

Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m) opened the scoring after Dele Alli (£8.3m) had spurned an excellent chance from close range and, after Wolves had equalised, Serge Aurier (£5.0m) reestablished the hosts’ lead with a curling effort just before half-time.

While the likes of Romain Saiss (£4.5m) and Willy Boly (£4.8m) were left with meagre scores as a result of the clean sheet wipe-out, Matt Doherty (£6.2m) underscored the fact that he can compensate for goal concessions with returns at the other end of the pitch.

The Irish wing-back had made one of his trademark diagonal darts from the right flank to level the scores at 1-1, capitalising on Japhet Tanganga‘s (£4.1m) inability to clear Ruben Vinagre‘s (£4.2m) cross and prodding the ball past Paolo Gazzaniga (£4.2m) from six yards.

Doherty then turned provider for Wolves’ second equaliser of the game, galloping into the Spurs box and sending in a cross/shot that Diogo Jota (£6.3m) helped over the line from close range.

It’s now nine attacking returns for the season for the Republic of Ireland international; only Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) has more among FPL defenders.

No player in any position has scored more points than Doherty over the last four Gameweeks, meanwhile.

While chasing points can be a mug’s game in FPL, Doherty’s form is coinciding with some excellent fixtures for his team, and there is every chance of further returns between now and Gameweek 32.

All of Wolves’ next four fixtures are against clubs in the bottom half, while Santo’s side are one of just four clubs who are definitely guaranteed a fixture in Blank Gameweek 31 – although the pool of teams will be bigger by the time the FA Cup fifth round has reached its conclusion this week.

Doherty is not the only Wolves asset worthy of consideration, of course.

Raul Jimenez (£8.0m) scored his 13th league goal of the season on Sunday (as many as he managed in 2018/19), latching onto Jota’s pass and finishing superbly to hand the visitors all three points.

The Mexican, who later fired wide in the dying stages of the game, rose in price again overnight and has the added benefit of being as close to ‘nailed’ as anyone in the Wolves attack, having started all but one of his side’s 28 league fixtures.

Unlike Jimenez, Jota was not someone we could rely on earlier in the campaign, with form, fitness and UEFA Europa League-led rotation all black marks against him.

More than half of his FPL returns this season, indeed, have come in the last two Gameweeks.

The Portugal international is evidently in fine fettle at present, however, and perhaps the most encouraging aspect of this most-recent double-digit haul is that he did it on the left of a 3-4-3, rather than centrally in a 3-5-2.

Jota was superb again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with one of his trademark take-ons (he attempted eight on Sunday, more than any other player in Gameweek 28) leading to Jimenez’s match-winner.

His tap-ins against Norwich City and now Spurs demonstrated his poacher’s potential, while he also went close with a header from a corner-kick in the second half of Sunday’s encounter.

Minute-management remains a minor issue (he hasn’t completed 90 minutes once since Christmas) with Wolves still competing in the Europa League but, given the form that Jota is in and the race for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League still in the balance, the hope would be that outright benchings will be few and far between.

As for Spurs, they are not quite as en vogue in the Fantasy community.

A run of fixtures over the next four Gameweeks that includes in-form Burnley, Manchester United and Sheffield United, as well as a possible blank in Gameweek 31, should temper interest.

The Lilywhites at least showed more a bit more attacking threat than they had recently without Son Heung-min (£9.8m) and Harry Kane (£10.8m), with Alli catching the eye in a central role between Bergwijn and Lucas Moura (£7.1m).

The former MK Dons midfielder ought to have scored himself in the run-up to Bergwijn’s goal but at least claimed an assist when Rui Patricio‘s (£5.1m) save fell kindly for the Dutchman.

Alli then drew another stop from the Wolves goalkeeper with a bicycle kick from six yards before planting a header narrowly wide of Patricio’s left-hand post after the interval.

Jose Mourinho thought his side were worthy of a point after the match, saying:

I think it was a very good game with two teams that nobody was happy with the draw. Two teams trying to win it. Of course two teams with different styles. They are what we all know they are, incredibly fast and strong in counter-attack. We are a different team. Obviously, without the strikers we tried different solutions.

I think it worked in the sense that we managed to score goals. We managed to have some opportunities.

We managed to arrive in dangerous positions. I don’t know as I don’t have the data at the moment but I believe we had more possession than them. We had more control than them. I think it’s unfair, the result is totally unfair for us but that’s what it is.

Erik Lamela (£5.7m), who has been playing without training recently, missed out on Sunday as Mourinho said he was “not even ready to go on the bench”.

Hugo Lloris (£5.3m) was also absent with a groin problem, with his manager saying in his post-match presser:

It’s hard to say when he’s going to be back. Is it a big problem? I don’t think it is. But not ready to play today. We have to wait.

Asked about why Eric Dier (£4.8m) had started at centre-half, Mourinho added:

The thinking was simple, the thinking was Davinson and Tanganga are the two fastest central defenders that we have.

Eric is the one who by nature is a midfield player so playing in the middle between those centre-backs is the one who is normally more comfortable to step up, he’s more comfortable with reading the game and passing.

So it was a mixture of giving security but at the same time keeping fast people at the back.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (3-4-3): Gazzaniga; Sanchez, Dier, Tanganga (Ndombele 76′); Aurier (Gedson 82′), Lo Celso, Winks, Davies (Parrott 90′); Moura, Alli, Bergwijn.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Vinagre; Traore (Neto 75′), Jimenez (Podence 90′), Jota (Dendoncker 79′).

    Traore owners, it's a sell despite the GW31 isn't it?

    There's the injury concern, the rotation concern, and the fact he tends to assist the assister lately which is quite of lot of concerns?

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Yeah, he needs to go mate

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years

      It was the crop top that finally decided it for me.

    3. Baps hunter

      Definitely keep, if you are in top 100k 😉 (says non-owner)

        Getting rid but we’ll wait to see results this week first, going to be in trouble if Liverpool win!

    4. Old Man

      • 10 Years

      Yeah, apart from the injury concern, the rotation concern, the fact that he tends to assist the assister, he isn't Jim, Jota or Doherty. Other than that - what has Adama Traore done for us?
      Er .........

      Not enough wrong to justify wildcard.

        What would you do?

        1. circusmonkey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          As below.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'd play 4-4-2 and save.

      1. FPL_BUCCANEER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I was planning 3-5-2

        TAA Egan Stephens
        Salah Mane KDB Grealish Traore
        Vardy Ings

        Soy Lascelles Greenwood

        You think 4-4-2?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          My first thought was to bench Adama and play Soy - guess it depends on any team news (Adama and Ndidi) we might get.

          1. FPL_BUCCANEER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Yes, true. Thanks! If Adama is fit, I feel I have to play him at home to brighton, otherwise I would never play him.

    3. KunDogan (B.D.)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Save wc for doubles, you are fine!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Thanks mate, would you hold the transfer then? Or..

  3. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Which move?

    A) Martinelli > Jota

    B) Salah, Martinelli > Fernandes, Auba (-4)

    Plan is to captain Mane this week

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A - why lose Mo this week?

    2. No Kane No Gain
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A, by far.

      -4 to sell salah and gain a player away at city is not advisable.

  4. Sotamendi84
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    keep for vardy for villa game or get jota (vs brighton)? i already have maddison and barnes

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Jota

    2. rnrd
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Vardy "should" be fine is not enough for keeping imo.

      I think you should wait for the FA cup result. If Leicester are out, then iy's worth considering keeping vardy

  5. The Bad Seed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    template = differential ??

    For the final 10 gameweeks, it would be safe to assume that many will be forsaking the template players, and heading towards differentials, etc...

    With that said, is sticking to the "template" guns a good shout? I think a large number of teams might take hits, leave guaranteed scorers for maverick ones, and bring forth their own demise.

    Does sticking to SOME templatedness make sense in the final 10?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Sticking to the template all season is sensible - especially if you have WC and chips left.

      1. The Bad Seed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        for a respectable rank - yes.
        most players screw themselves over when they go "maverick"

      2. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Where will that get you? 10k maybe? If that is what you're after then yes

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Not a bad target though is it?

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 4 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            No it's good. But is that the aim of the game for you? No offense, just interested

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              I guess I'd like to win, but can't imagine that is going to happen. Not aiming for exactly 10K.
              "Humble" brag - OR400 odd a couple of years ago and was as high as about OR200 that season and disappointingly didn't actually change my life - did learn never to get Tosun or Dilva though.

        2. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I doubt it. Top 50k perhaps.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I think 6 solid shield/template players and 5 differentials and punts is a good way to progress.

      TAA
      Salah KDB
      Vardy Jimenez Ings

      Is my template core.

      1. The Bad Seed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Verdy is Auba, and Inga is Long for me.

        Used to be like you, switched only last week.

      2. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Nothing against that template since I have all of those players, just surprised that Vardy is still on the list. Thought the template now will be to get rid and replace with Auba/DCL/Jota

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Vardy is on it due to owmership. Am seriously considering selling for Auba or Jota this GW though.

      3. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Same apart from Ings is now Jota.

    3. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Put in harry wilson as a differential this week. He sat on the bench in a week I ended up fielding 10 players

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Not eligible to play v Pool

    4. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I don't understand some current templatish or highly owned players like Maddison, Traore and Vardy. Vardy I ditched for gw25. Those other two I haven't owned at all and not regretting.

      Pope
      TAA*, Doherty*, Stevens, Soy, B
      Williams
      KdB*, Salah*, Mane*, Bruno*, Dendo
      Jimenez*, DCL*, Ings

      That is my current team and it's core players* before WC. I just try to chase future points and try to get bandwagons in early, but avoid traps. Therefore Doherty over Alonso. (And I still hate my biggest failure, Pulisic).

      1. The Bad Seed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        beautiful.

        You reckon you'll stick to Salah and Mane up until the end?

        The high ownership I'd say is jumping on bandwagons, but then having to put up fires elswehere as we've seen too many "last minute emergencies" this year.

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          We shall see. It depends a lot on how dgw:s will pan out. But the lack of better midfield options is one thing. Auba for a later dgw might be reason good enough to ditch Mane, but hardly atm. I think they will want to smash Bou in front of home audience.

    (McCarthy - Stephens - O'Connell - Mooy)
    2.2m & 1 FT

    Sarr in for Grealish/Mooy is what I want to do.

    What transfers would you make here if City/Arsenal have a DGW29?

    Priced out of a few moves I could have made like Bruno to KDB or Salah/Mane & Ings to KDB & Auba.
    I think I could make a case for going with 0 DGW players.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Mooy to Sarr is on my to-do list.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I think I want to do it this week itself.
        This DGW might be a spanner in the works.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Even if there is a double not worth ripping up your team for - Saka if you don't want to be left out? Sarr much better than him.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Yeah Sarr definitely the better option and I want him.

            Might be the first time I have 0 DGW players!!

        Cheers.
        I didn't know of the possibility of a double GW, until now.

        I'm not going to rip my team up, for it though.
        I still have a free hit and bench boost.

        Cant sell Vardy rly diferential in cahs legues, everyone have Ings so Ings to Jota i like,leave me cahs to upgrade Mount/Barnes...but Ings have new c at home.

      Easy save.

    2. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Firmino to Auba?

      Firmino has blanked on 7 of his last 10gws

  15. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Case for Sarr.

    - Great form:- Sarr has been involved in 9 goals in 11 pl starts (5g 4a)

    - Great fixtures:- (cry LEI bur SOT che NOR NEW whu)

    - Plays gw31

    - Bargain price of 6.2m

    - Great differential:- owned by only 0.3% in top10k

    - Watford got something to play for ie relegation battle. Hence he'll give it all with no room for complacency

    Are you tempted.? Easy swap for Traore owners who dislocated his shoulders again in similar price bracket.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Tempted?

      I can't wait to get him in 😛

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Yh the way he destroyed liverpool was a joy to watch. Couldve had even more on another day if he was more clinical with the chances

        Honestly cant see a better midfeild option than him below 7.5m

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I think if he didn't get injured he would have been in many teams by now. I want to get him this week itself he'll be template very soon.

    2. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Worth the punt imo

    3. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I'm also tempted by Deeney

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Good option. But striker spot is very congested with Auba Jota Jimenez Ings DCL and to a lesser extent Vardy all fighting for 3 spots in our teams

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years

    Tempted to switch Barnes for Bruno but not sure where to go with some of the other fodder

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Rather keep Barnes (Leicester can only get better) and get rid of Adama.

      1. InterUranus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Traore to Sarr?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Hell yeah

  17. BNMC
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 5 months ago

    I feel like we are naturally more impatient with forwards than with other players because we expect them to score goals regularly, and when they go on a dry run it's difficult for them to get back to form.

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A fellow Vardy + Ings owner? 🙂

      1. BNMC
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Firmino and Ings. I want to sell both but will be for a hit.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Think that this is part of the draw of cheaper forwards - last couple of years at least easier to have big-hitters in midfield.

      1. BNMC
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Yeah, it's hard to find a consistent cheap midfielder (by cheap I mean below 7m). Grealish has been something special this season.

        Also for me, it's always form over fixtures for a striker.

    3. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Did DCL to Firmino 3gws ago. Worst transfer of the season for me

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        That’s worse than my dcl to jimi -4 🙁

        1. Rhodes your boat
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          In gw26

          1. HurriKane
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Tell me about it. Was trying to be clever and play the Fixtures. Badly backfired

            Saying that wouldn't have done the move if Mane didnt get injured leaving me an extra liverpool spot and 2ft. That firmino hattrick of assists got into my mind + fixtures against relegation fodders

            1. Rhodes your boat
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Same here fixtures swung it for me and jimi was performing

            2. Rhodes your boat
              • 4 Years
              1 year, 5 months ago

              Sounds like your moves made perfect sense in the situation though

  18. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Vardy Traore to Fernandes and ?

    A) jota (have jimi)
    B) Giroud (bit of a punt)
    C) dcl (sold a few weeks back)
    D) other striker 7.0 or below

    1. No Kane No Gain
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      got to be DCL?!

      Giroud could be good but i think regular 90 mins will be rare and you may get the odd 59 mins or 30 min cameo.

    2. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      A or C

    3. AsdcavirPT
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      C

    4. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Jota or Deeney. I like DCL (his price is about to rise) but think he has bagged so much and he has tough fixtures ahead (though it may not deter him).

  19. DAZZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    If you had to remove one of Barnes or Traore for Sarr, which one?

    1. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Traore with the injury

    2. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Traore no brainier. Nuno has come out and said traore dislocated his shoulders again and is playing through extreme pain. Hence he's getting rotated so often as of late

    So who else has decided to go no City up to GW32?

    Reduced minutes, no shows and benching for majority of City assets cannot be ruled out with their clogged fixture list. KDB not starting the League final, sign of things to come?

    Liverpool GW32 going to be a belter!

    Obviously if DGW29 happens things could change.

          Actually I sold them for Mane & Vardy two weeks ago.
          But then Vardy injury news broke out before deadline this week and I did Vardy & Traore to Bruno & Jota.

    Im trying to replace Ryan, but not sure who? Ideally id get Hendo, but he blanks 31, so that messes things up a bit. Pope with 2 difficult fixtures now. Mccarty, is he even safe now? Havent exactly been shining lately. Someone else Im missing?

    1. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I can see Pope racking up save points in those 2 difficult fixtures, then it's a very good run after those.

      Another option I like is Foster - he has been especially good at home and Watford have many winnable home games for the rest of the season.

    C) Traore -> Bergwijn/Sarr

  30. faux_C

    Thinking Snodgrass + Dunk to Sarr + Aarons.

    What do we reckon?

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Not too keen on Aarons but could work, also likely to have a game in 31 (if not using the FH).
