Scout Notes

A rare off-day for Calvert-Lewin but Everton defence in poor form for Liverpool test

Chelsea 4-0 Everton

  • Goals: Mason Mount (£6.1m), Pedro (£6.8m), Willian (£6.9m), Olivier Giroud (£6.5m)
  • Assists: Pedro, Ross Barkley (£5.6m) x2, Willian
  • Bonus: Barkley x3, Willian x2, Pedro x1

For the value that they have provided Fantasy managers this season, we can forgive Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.4m) and Richarlison (£8.3m) for their blanks at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Apart from a glorious one-on-one opportunity that Calvert-Lewin screwed wide after 25 minutes, Everton never really looked like scoring in west London.

The Toffees had a miserable three efforts on goal all afternoon, with only one of them, an ambitious Richarlison attempt from distance, forcing returning goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.4m) into action.

The strangely subdued visitors were quite simply second-best for the majority of the game, with Chelsea looking the hungrier and sharper on and off the ball and fully meriting the margin of victory.

As proven at Vicarage Road in Gameweek 28, even a juggernaut like Liverpool can have an off-day, and there will no doubt be a reaction from Carlo Ancelotti’s troops in the Merseyside derby next Monday.

However, there are legitimate concerns about Everton’s defence even when they are at their competitive best at the other end of the pitch.

Since Ancelotti took charge, only three teams have conceded more Premier League goals than the Toffees (17) and kept fewer clean sheets (two).

Granted, most of the goal concessions have been on the road and Everton enjoy home advantage against their cross-city rivals in Gameweek 30.

But Ancelotti’s side haven’t recorded a shut-out home or away in two months and have shipped an average of two goals per match since then.

The Italian’s preference for a 4-4-2 does occasionally leave Everton looking exposed in the middle of the park, particularly when they are currently without a true anchor in the Idrissa Gueye mould, and they completely lost the midfield battle at Chelsea on Sunday.

With the influential Jordan Henderson (£5.3m) expected back for the Merseyside derby, that could well be a key battleground at Goodison Park.

Right-back is also a problem position at the moment, especially with Seamus Coleman (£5.3m) out.

Djibril Sidibe‘s (£5.1m) attacking attributes have attracted a fair bit of Fantasy interest this season but he looks less comfortable going the other way and he had a truly dreadful game on Sunday, with Pedro (£6.8m) having a whale of a time down the Chelsea left.

Since Ancelotti took charge, only Bournemouth have allowed more chances from their right flank than the Toffees. That’s something that Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and co may find to their advantage in Gameweek 30 but it wouldn’t be a huge shock if the Everton boss was making other arrangements after Sidibe’s horror show, perhaps by shifting Mason Holgate (£4.4m) out to right-back or by deploying an extra centre-half.

Ancelotti said after full-time:

It’s very disappointing. This is the first time I was so sad for the performance of the team. Everything was wrong. We were not good defensively, lost a lot of duels, were not compact and did a lot of mistakes.

Mason Mount (£6.1m) had already gone close to scoring before he found the back of the net, with Jordan Pickford (£5.3m) denying the England midfielder from ten yards early on after a superb pick out from Willian (£6.9m).

There were to be no heroics from Pickford soon after, however, with Mount turning and firing past the Everton goalkeeper after fine work from Pedro.

The Spaniard then got on the scoresheet himself, collecting Ross Barkley‘s (£5.6m) pass and sprinting clear of the visitors’ backline to double Chelsea’s lead.

Willian and Oliver Giroud (£6.5m) both went close in the first half before the Brazilian effectively killed the game after 50 minutes, arrowing a 25-yard effort beyond Pickford after being teed up by the busy Barkley.

Willian then turned provider for Chelsea’s final goal, sending over the cross that Giroud poked in from close range.

Further chances came and went but the introductions of teenagers Faustino Anjorin and Armando Broja (both £4.5m) late on, plus the experimental deployment of substitute Reece James (£5.0m) in midfield, was a clear indication that the game had ceased to become a contest long before full-time.

Chelsea enjoy some excellent fixtures before and after Blank Gameweek 31 and their two most-recent displays against Liverpool and Everton in cup and league have certainly caught the eye.

How best to tap into their attack is a big dilemma, however.

Pedro, Willian and Barkley all excelled in delivering double-digit hauls but Chelsea’s midfield is bloated and we still have N’Golo Kante (£5.0m), Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m), Jorginho (£4.9m), Christian Pulisic (£6.9m), Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.3m) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.3m) to return in the not-so-distant future, to add to the competition for places.

Billy Gilmour‘s (£4.5m) fine display in the holding midfield role on Sunday will also give his manager a welcome headache.

Speaking after the match, Frank Lampard said:

You will always need your squad through the year. We have a lot of injuries but the only way to tackle that is to work and fight and play at a high intensity with energy and to trust in each other.

Kepa has been out of the team and showed character and he has come in for two clean sheets and made saves, and had a brave moment at the end of this game. Ross Barkley and Marcos Alonso have come back in and that is what we need.

It does not matter if you are four months from the end of your contract or out the team for a month, you have to train every day full pelt, be a brilliant teammate and when you come in you have to try to contribute.

Giroud would seem to have the upper hand in attack, meanwhile, although Tammy Abraham (£7.5m) is expected back towards the end of March.

The Chelsea boss said of the France international after full-time:

We had Olly playing well. He is selfless and then you must have runners and energy around him to make the most of it. And stick balls in the box like we did for his goal. He is a personality and we need that.

One of the more secure starters in Lampard’s starting XI, Mount, was withdrawn shortly before the hour-mark on Sunday and appeared to be feeling his hamstring before heading straight down the tunnel after his substitution.

James’ benching was a reminder that we’re never truly sure about which defenders Lampard will pick on a week-to-week basis, although the versatile Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.8m) did start his 15th league match in a row.

There was also another run-out for Marcos Alonso (£6.1m) but, in a back four rather than a wing-back system, he wasn’t quite the attacking menace he had been in previous weeks.


Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso; Barkley, Gilmour, Mount (James 60′); Willian (Anjorin 71′), Giroud (Broja 86′), Pedro.

Everton XI (4-4-2): Pickford; Sidibe, Keane, Holgate, Digne; Bernard (Walcott 46′), Gomes, Davies (Kean 58′), Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin (Gordon 76′), Richarlison.

    Out of GW31 players I currently have Salah, TAA, VVD, Jimenez, Saiss, Traore and Rico. So probably means 5 starting players and maybe 2 from the bench. Would you:

    A) free hit
    B) do 2 FT to get 7 starters
    C) take -4 to get 8 starters

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      A

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      B or C. No need to FH since you'll have that gw's bighitters.

      1. KUNingas

    3. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C

    4. Pukki Party
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      B, i'd get one player from Spurs-WHU game. Maybe Alli or Fornals

  2. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Captain options:

    A) Alonso (avl)
    B) KDB (BUR)
    C) Fernandes (tot)
    D) Salah (eve)
    E) Auba (bha)

    2. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Not the easiest decision this gws. Probably D

    3. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      The way TOT are right now, Fernandes could be a great pick.
      C is on him for me at the moment.
      Alonso a nice differential pick, playing AVL.

    4. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      C can be a good differential pick

    5. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      If KDB doesn't play tonight, B.

      Otherwise D

    6. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      As peeps have rightly said Alonso somewhat shackled if he plays that system again.
      D.

  3. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Any suggestions for this team? 1ft, 0.1m itb. Get in a third pool player? FH, WC and BB left. Thanks.

    Aubameyang Jimenez Ings

    McCarthy Saka Tanganga Taylor
    1ft 1.1m

    A) chilwell to Doherty

  5. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Folks, how is Doucoure as an option?
    I’m 0.1 short for Sarr

    It’s basically between Doucoure and Barnes

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      barnes has no 31

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      He's ok.

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I'm a Doucoure fan and long time owner, gives me Yayaesque feeling. 😀

    4. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I like him, may even prefer him to Sarr atm, he's high up on my watch list.

  6. jai1212
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Currently team looks like:
    Leno Button
    VVD TAA Soyuncu Bertrand Saiss
    Salah KDB Martial Maddison Traore
    Vardy Ings Greenwood

    1FT and 0

    1. Do I do FH for GW31
    2. Take a -4 for the coming 2 GWs and get 9 players to play? ( Possibly Jota, Spurs GK and 2 others)

  7. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    If you had Pope, Taylor, TAA, Doherty, Sarr, Mane, Salah and Jimenez for gw31, would that be enough to avoid FH?

    Would only be 8 players and would need a single hit to get to it.

    Don't see 3 more players I'd be desperate to get to warrant the FH personally.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Looks like you have the key players there.

    2. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      You’re sorted

    3. matiakez
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Think that's fine, particularly as you've got Salah and Mane.

    4. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Thanks, blew my WC, so protecting the FH seems sensible.

      1. No Professionals
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Could take a second hit for jota, probably won't though.

    5. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I'm probably going IN with

      Taa Taylor Saiss
      Salah Mane Sarr
      Jimenez Jota/Wood

      So i think you're good to go too.

      1. Abra Dubravka
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 20 days ago

        very nice! How many hits will that be?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

          1
          This upcoming GW

    6. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Bring in Lo Celso and captain him.
      Gnome knowledge reckons he hauls in 31.

    7. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      You are set. I really don't want to use my FH but I look at my team and have to basically. Still have wc thankfully.

  8. Dynamic Duos
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Lamela is a bargain?

    1. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      No

      1. DOG GOD IT - KEANE 15
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        With Bergwijn out, won't Lamela and Lucas likely be regular?

        1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          Spurs suck right now. Alli only I'd say.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Trap

  9. Whats the Huth
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Reckon KDB to Bruno is a good shout?
    Fh31

    1. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      If kdb gets few minutes tomorrow, then he will mostly starts against burnley which in that case better to have kdb.
      If kdb gets no mins against arsenal and pep still gives doubts yes make the move

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      If there's a high chance to miss BUR, sure.

    3. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      If you're playing FH31 then absolutely yes. Same possibility for me. I presume that you're hoping for a KDB no show tomorrow ..... do you think he'll play?

  10. matiakez
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    What's the consensus on whether to FH in 31 if you've already used WC. I can probably get 8 without taking hits and leaving my team to butchered long term.

    1. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      8 is enough... given that you have 6 main players already...
      if there is 4 or more fillers then better to fh

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        8-9 is fine, as soon as they are the ones that could punish you if not owned.

        1. matiakez
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I don't own Mane that's the only thing that really concerns me and getting him in transfers is quite awkward

    2. No Professionals
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      See above.

      I think if you've used the WC like me, FH is more precious.

      1. matiakez
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Thanks, think your right. Barnes hauling has clouded my judgement a bit this morning as he was departing this week.

  11. KUNingas

    Play two
    A) Sarr (LEI)

    D) Cantwell (SOU)

    1. Do I Not Like Orange

      A and B probably

    5. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      That's tough. WH have improved a bit, so perhaps bench Saiss. Norwich haven't scored for ages too - but they are showing fight. Arrrgh!

  12. Do I Not Like Orange
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    That result last night was brutal. I'm at peace with the Vardy points as I was right not to trust Rodgers' fitness assurances, just stupid luck that he got decent minutes off the bench & hauled. Going Perez over Barnes 2 weeks ago was rough, though. One of those times where I definitely should've trusted the consensus on here over my own instincts.

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Brendan was shown why you play Vardy not Nacho last night.

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      LEI being awarded that penalty for THAT handball right after Vardy's introduction was pretty annoying...

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Same with Perez.
      Should have stuck with consensus over here

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Vardy was confirmed out and stats clearly favored Perez in that situation. Another sound decision punished by dumb bad luck. Barnes being gifted a goal and an assist out of nothing the cherry on the cake...

        Just a shame he didn’t start, would easily have had a shout at another return or two you’d have to think vs that Villa side

        Cap vs Watford now to take advantage of the streak that likely follows now that Ndidi’s back

        *crosses fingers*

        1. Old Man

          No stand out captain this week so why not - he often does well when they have the chance to counter-attack. I might well join you. Pearson is a wily old sod though and he knows all about Vardy.

    Does having Sarr, Taylor and Pope make sense GW31?

    You know you are either in for the following

    Sarr haul = Taylor max 2 pointer, Pope 2 pointer depending on Sarr haul. Pope could get save points. So I would say max 3 pointer for Pope.

    Or Pope haul minimum 9 pointer, Taylor 6 pointer, Sarr 2 pointer.

    Guess it depends if you FH31 or using hits or FT's...

      I will have all 3 of them. It's sort of spreading the risk, especially since there are so few teams playing in 31.

    2. Duffy Dunk

      • 3 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I plan owning those 3, expecting a BUR cs. If it gets wiped out, Sarr should be involved.

    3. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Or Deeney haul and Sarr does nothing. 2 points all round.

        Lol

    4. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

      2 months, 20 days ago

      I agree. Just getting Sarr and probably 1st bench. I prefer Wood, Alli, Jota and Antonio right now and can't play everyone.

    If I roll a transfer for GW30 and then free hit in GW31 do I have two transfers for GW32 or only one?

    1. BNMC
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Just the one.

      1. Tomerick

        This displeases me.

          • 4 Years
          2 months, 20 days ago

          I had the same issue. Decided to change Ryan to Krul in prep for his likely dgw34.

    Guys PLZ HELP

    I have 2 free transfers and no idea how to use 1 of them this week. Defence settled for GW 31 so making no changes there

    Salah Mane Traore Barnes (cantwell)

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year

      I could sell ings but he has the best fixture this week of all the potential replacements

    2. olidooley
      • 7 Years

      Traoré to Sarr/Doucoure

  19. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

    Made a huge error and can't afford Soy to Alonso, so original transfer plan ruined. FH31 for me and WC soon. Advice?

    TAA Doherty Soyuncu

  20. Le Tigre
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    I have all my chips left and with free transfers I can field 9 players in gw31 including most of they ones eg salah, mane three wolves etc
    Just wondering if I would benefit more using my free transfers on other players and free hitting in 31.
    If I don’t free hit in 31 then when are other people using it?

    1. bigbudgie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      9 is good, I would save the FH, use it in a DGW 34 or 37

    Help please! Based on past years would it be badly wrong to assume gw31 postponements will be in midweek gw34 and gw34 postpobements will go to gw37?

    1. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 20 days ago

      It's a little more complicated than that. GW 34 has a midweek slot. So any missed fixtures from 31 or 28 could go there. However, any team still in the FA cup 1/4 finals on the GW34 weekend (or their opponents) may have that GW 34 match played then so their GW31 blank may move out to GW37 (or another week).

    Who are the must haves for gw 31?
    TAA
    Salah
    Mane
    Doherty/Saiss/Boly
    Jimenez
    Jota
    Pope
    Alli

    If you have most of these players already or can get them for a hit or two, FH can be saved for later.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 20 days ago

      Alli isn't the one. Antonio is the one IMO.

      You've listed all of the would be highly owned players.

      1. olidooley
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        Agree....Spurs are really bad

  27. olidooley
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    What’s the latest thinking?
    Best to WC 32/33, BB 34 and FH 37?
    Or FH 34, WC 36 and BB 37?

    1. HarryB29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I guess BB is better used on a bigger double gameweek which I imagine will be 37 so FH34,WC36,BB37 is what I will be doing

      1. olidooley
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 20 days ago

        If they actually turn up and play isn’t it though

    Free hitting in 31 so will be keeping this players until WC a bit later, 2FT, 1.3 ITB, ZERO idea what to do

    Main question: Which two to prioritise getting rid considering the above (prolly WC in 33 or 36)

    Ryan
    TAA Soy Stevens (Stephens Rico)
    Salah KDB Fernandes Traore (Dendonker)
    Vardy Ings Jiminez

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 20 days ago

      I messed up a double move (above) but I wanted Ryan out and Krul should have nice dgw fixs. I would have said Vardy...

  30. Iggy pop
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 20 days ago

    Soy Vards and Barnes moved me from 60k to 22k! but with only KDB tonight I expect a drop. nearly all transfer thoughts included the above! time to reassess.
