Wolves defensive assets deliver again despite Jota and Jiménez blank

Wolves 0-0 Brighton

  • Goals: None
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus Points: Romain Saïss x3 (£4.5m), Willy Boly x2 (£4.8m), Conor Coady x1 (£5.0m), Mat Ryan x1 (£4.8m)

Despite widespread interest in their forward players, it was Wolves defenders who emerged as the key assets from their 0-0 draw with Brighton on Saturday.

While Nuno Espirito Santo’s men laboured to a first blank since Gameweek 26, after scoring three times in Gameweeks 27 and 28, they remained solid at the back once again.

The fact that since Gameweek 25, no team in the Premier League team has kept more clean sheets than Wolves (four), is proof that they are finally delivering on their impressive underlying defensive statistics – encouraging considering they face West Ham (away), Bournemouth (home) and Aston Villa (away) between now and Gameweek 32.

“We were also organised, it was a game of not too many chances, but it’s about how we perform, how we want to do things.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

“We didn’t concede, that was kind of the goal at the start of the game, keep a clean sheet and see if we can win the game, but we didn’t manage to do that. The more clean sheets you have, the more chance you have of winning. That is a positive, but we didn’t win the game.” – Matt Doherty

Their recent upturn in defensive returns has coincided with the return of Willy Boly (£4.8m) to the team from an ankle injury but several of his colleagues have arguably proved better Fantasy assets than him because of it.

GW25-29 Price Points per game
Matt Doherty 6.2 8.0
Rui Patrício 5.1 6.6
Romain Saïss 4.5 6.4
Conor Coady 5.0 5.6
Willy Boly 4.8 5.2
Jonny 5.4 3.6
Ruben Vinagre 4.2 2.6

Among those is cheaper asset Romain Saïss (£4.5m) who has proved great value since Gameweek 25 and picked up maximum bonus points from Double Gameweek 29.

In the last five matches, the Moroccan international has averaged 6.4 points per game, accruing bonus on two occasions, even on the latest outing when he picked up a yellow card.

Saïss has historically been something of a booking-magnet, the one he earned against Brighton his eighth of the campaign, more than any other Wolves player. However, it has been noted by the local press that in recent months, Saïss has been making improvements in this area, which is reflected in the timings of his yellows this season. In 13 appearances between Gameweeks 1 and 18, Saïss was booked seven times, every 150 minutes, but since Gameweek 19, he has picked up just one yellow card in 10 starts.

Fantasy managers should also keep an eye on Ruben Vinagre (£4.2m), who scored six points from 90 minutes at left-back on Saturday afternoon. He came into the team in light of an injury to Jonny (£5.5m) and could hold onto it, at a budget FPL price, if the Spaniard is out for much longer.

Naturally, Matt Doherty (£6.2m) is another of those defensive assets to average more points than Boly since his return to the team but he had to make do with a standard six-pointer against Brighton, with attacking returns largely the source of any bonus for the wing-back.

Tasked with providing the width in Wolves’ 3-5-2 formation, Doherty arguably came in for some slight criticism from his manager, who appeared to admit at full-time that the team should have done better in wide areas.

Nuno had opted to leave Adama Traoré (£5.8m) on the bench for the third time in the last four Gameweeks, the Spaniard adding some much-needed impetus in his 26-minute second-half cameo, although it was too little too late.

Whether or not that leaves Traoré in a position where he will start Gameweek 30, remains to be seen though.

“We expected this kind of game and we must find unbalanced situations, mainly in our wide areas and one versus one situations. We know our opponents, we knew today would be like that, we should have done better. We tried to find solutions for the game. Sometimes it works out, Adama [Traore] helped the team, Daniel [Podence] entered well, but we didn’t create too many situations. Brighton were very well organised.”

With Wolves getting bogged down in wide areas at Molineux, it ensured that the supply for Raúl Jiménez (£8.0m) and Diogo Jota (£6.4m) was largely cut off.

There had been huge interest in the strike partnership for Double Gameweek 29, especially with a favourable fixture in Blank Gameweek 31 fixture on the horizon. That is still likely to continue though, as this was only the third blank for Jiménez since Gameweek 23, while Jota still has five attacking returns in that time.

Brighton should also take some credit for their defensive performance on Saturday, as it was an important contributing factor in Wolves’ blank as both Nuno and Doherty referenced at full-time.

“We should collect the ball faster, try to unbalance them faster. Brighton were very organised, had good possession of the ball, and we didn’t create too many chances, as they didn’t.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

“Whatever shape they had, they stayed nice and compact. They made us go out wide and we didn’t create too many chances. They had a game plan and stuck to it really well. Hence, we had shots from outside of the box and didn’t create too much.” – Matt Doherty

Yves Bissouma (£5.0m) was arguably Brighton’s best player at Molineux, putting on a disciplined midfield performance at both ends of the pitch. The Malian international was a key man in breaking up Wolves’ play and added plenty of drive to the Seagulls when they were going in the opposite direction.

This was Bissouma’s third start in a row and could be the start of many more. He held his place in the team despite stalwart Dale Stephens (£4.4m) returning to fitness, and such a strong performance, if he can build on it, should make Brighton harder to score against moving forward. That may sound particularly ominous to those invested in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.1m), Nicolas Pépé (£9.2m) and other Arsenal attackers for Gameweek 30.

“Bissouma has had to be patient this season but recently he has been doing really well, training really well. I thought it was probably his best performance, certainly his best that I’ve seen. He won a lot of balls back and physically he is in a good place at the moment. He will get better and better the more he plays. He shows a discipline and quality so I am really pleased for him.” – Graham Potter

However, those looking at the Brighton defence, either for investment or targetting with attacking players, should consider that, despite Bissouma’s recent improvements, Lewis Dunk (£4.8m) is currently treading a fine line.

The centre-back’s performances continue to be reliable, putting in another strong display at Wolves, but he is now just one yellow card off a two-match suspension. When Dunk does eventually pick up that tenth booking of the season, it could leave a big gap in the Brighton defence.

The Seagulls are still struggling for goals though, registering a second blank of their own in the last two Gameweeks.

This time out, Graham Potter went with Leandro Trossard (£5.8m) and Solly March (£4.6m) either side of Neal Maupay (£5.7m) and while the former was busy creating chances, very few of them were clear cut. Meanwhile, Maupay probably should have done better in terms of his positioning to make the most of the balls that came his way.

Such continued struggles for Brighton could be good news for those invested in Arsenal and Manchester United’s defences as they are their next two opponents.

That said, there are exciting things expected from Alexis Mac Allister (£5.5m), who finally made his first appearance for Brighton in Double Gameweek 29, coming on for March in the last 10 minutes.

“I thought as the game maybe opened up, you could see (Mac Allister’s) quality in seeing a pass – and a forward pass. His set-play delivery is of a high level. It was finding the right time for him to play, the right time for him to come on to the pitch because of his adaptation process. But he is ready to help, as are a lot of other players. We just try to select the right ones and then you want a performance and I thought we got that against a good team.” – Graham Potter

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-5-2): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Boly; Vinagre, Moutinho, Neves (Traoré 64′), Dendoncker, Doherty; D Jota (Podence 74′), Jiménez.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-3): Ryan; Burn, Dunk, Webster, Montoya; Mooy (D Stephens 89′), Pröpper, Bissouma; Trossard (Jahanbakhsh 82′), Maupay, March (Mac Allister 80′).

      TC

      1. Rolls-Royce

        How come? It's just a player extra compared to BB where you could have 4 extra players.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        Agree. TC and BB are highly unpredictable and more based on luck.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          WC and BB go often hand in hand.

    7. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      WC and then FH

    Auba, Ings and Maddison to Wood, Jimenez and Alli worth it for -4pts in GW31?

    Pep got everything wrong yesterday. Starting Sterling who has been useless for ages, and Foden who clearly wasnt up to the task as he went into hiding out by the touchline all game. And worse, took way too long to do anything to fix it, even letting Sterling play 90 minutes while removing Bernardo instead.

    Fair play to Ole for making no mistakes with his team and tactical approach.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      I think Pep wants to win the FA Cup, win the CL and the he can go brag about it at his next job interview.

      League does not matter now.

    2. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years

      Taking Aguero off instead Sterling was a shocking decision. Loved it as a United fan and Aguero non-owner.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        Tbf Aguero had a knock. But even then, starting Sterling and Foden ahead of Mahrez was laughable

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 6 Years
          22 days, 3 hours ago

          I think he often tries to pull off being an irascible genius guy in these big games and often fails.

      2. La Roja

        Aguero was actually struggling to continue

    3. La Roja
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Agreed, he should’ve started with Mahrez who is arguably the best play of City when KDB ain’t around

    If Mount is out who is the best pick up to 6.5?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Not Perez.

    Would you rather bring in Sarr or Antonio for GWs 31-32?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Sarr

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Antonio easily for me. Especially if you are loading on Burnley for a clean sheet. Spurs look ripe for one of his weird dances

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 3 hours ago

        No bias ?

    3. Amey

    If Vardy has been training since Friday I don't see why he wouldn't start. He's not the sort of player who needs wrapping in cotton wool is he, he's a nutter. Leicester desperate for goals. I reckon he will start

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      No no apparently the source is 110% reliable, so now it is gospel

    2. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      It's quite plausible from Rodgers' point of view - he spoke before that he's concerned with Vardy's recurring injuries since New Year and may want to protect him.

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Maybe he just needs his minutes managed and he is eased in 🙂 Don't worry.

    4. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Vardy owners will think this. Guess there is not a lot that can be done now either way.

    5. ^Freedom Fighter^
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Agree
      Hope he starts(have Lascelles first sub)

    Which players do you see as good buys for 32 fixtures onwards if no WC?

    United-AWB Fernandes
    Liverpool -TAA plus Salah or Mané
    Chelsea- Mount Alonso
    Everton - DCL or Richarlison
    Watford- Sarr and possibly Deeney
    Wolves- Jiménez and 1 defender
    S United - Henderson plus 1 defender
    Villa- Grealish
    Burnley- Pope
    City- too much rotation if still in cups otherwise KDB

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      United: add Martial and Maguire who has now goal threat from corners.

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      The only issue with Hendo is that he has only one dgw.

  20. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    22 days, 3 hours ago

    Can't wait for KDB to punish sellers next GW

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      On crutches.

  21. El Presidente
    22 days, 3 hours ago

    Pope
    TAA, Boly, Aurier
    Salah, Mané, Sarr, Alli, McNeil
    Jota, Jimenez

    1. El Presidente
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Or Antonio instead of McNeil, havent decided yet

      1. El Presidente

    Is KDB expected to play against Arsenal?

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Comments from Pep are not promising

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Madrid and Newcastle are more important and won't risk KDB.

      As per Pep.

    3. ^Freedom Fighter^
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Have no idea

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      So not even Burnley is looking likely.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        KDB was in training before the UTD clash.

  23. fachada

    oh boy.. how much would I give to see Vardy banging an hattrick tonight

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 3 hours ago

      Lets see if he even starts 😀

    2. linkafu

      Same here

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      He will play 23 minutes, but that is enough for him 🙂

  24. TONY123
    • 4 Years

    Is this -8 a no brainer for GW31 in order to field 10 players?
    Ings, Stephens, Barnes, Martial > Wood, Aurier, Alli, Sarr

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes if you already have Salah, Mane, TAA, Jimenez, Jota and one of Doherty/Saiss

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Nope. Martial to Alli might alone be -8 if you need him back and have Bruno already.

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      If not FHing, it can work. Moves just for one week are hit and miss.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      Spurs assets. Are you going to take hits to get them out again?

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        I doubt even Aurier is an option to go forward. They are in serious trouble after their best player injured his arm.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          22 days, 2 hours ago

          If Mourinho decided to inject Parrot into the starting 11, I may consider.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            22 days, 2 hours ago

            For my bench...

    5. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      I should have mentioned I'm most probably using WC in 32.

    6. FantasyHero
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      I dont see really any of them worth a hit.

  25. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    22 days, 2 hours ago

    So Bergwijn out long term, 1 GW 31 option less

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      I guess we can safely play our defenders vs them for time being.

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        You really trust Whu defence?!?

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      That 4m WHU defender might be the key now 😀

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 2 hours ago

        Who 😉

          Difficult to spell i guess
          Ngakia ??

  29. Lindelol

    FT, TC and BB to go.
    Want to play FH in 34. Since I don't have WC so to play BB should I start loading up players for 37 BB or is it better to play TC in 37 and play BB in any GW depending on my bench?

    1. Tinkermania
      22 days, 2 hours ago

      FT?

      1. Lindelol
