Hasenhuttl to aid Ings’ quest for the Golden Boot as Watford’s FPL assets flop

Watford 1-3 Southampton

  • Goals: Jan Bednarek (£4.4m) own-goal | Danny Ings (£7.3m) x2, James Ward-Prowse (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Jose Holebas (£4.6m) | Will Smallbone (£4.5m), Che Adams (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Ings x3, Ward-Prowse x2, Oriol Romeu (£4.3m) x1

Sunday’s match at Vicarage Road was our bi-weekly reminder that football, and Fantasy Premier League, rarely goes according to the script.

Mid-table Southampton, sitting 10 points clear of the drop zone heading into Gameweek 32+, were meant to be in ‘on the beach’ territory, and Watford, hovering precariously above the bottom three, were the ones supposed to be scrapping for their lives.

But the Saints were hungrier, sharper, quicker to the second ball and just generally better than their hosts in every department this weekend, inflicting a fully deserved defeat on Nigel Pearson’s side.

Watford might well tick the ‘something to play for’ box with regards to motivation but they have also won just one of their last ten league fixtures (improbably against Liverpool), a run that includes six meetings with teams currently ranked tenth or below.

The triple-header against Norwich City, Newcastle United and West Ham United in Gameweeks 34+ to 36+ still holds great appeal but owners of the Hornets’ Fantasy assets are now facing the eternal ‘form versus fixtures’ quandary, with Watford ranked a lowly 18th when clubs are filtered by their last ten matches.

Pearson’s troops didn’t even manage a single shot on target on Sunday, with their goal coming courtesy of Jan Bednarek (£4.4m); the Polish stopper turning a Jose Holebas (£4.6m) cross past his own goalkeeper late in the game.

Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m) perhaps looked the likeliest to make things happening, seeing a close-range shot blocked just after the interval and twice getting into his now customary promising positions on the byline, but even he was well below-par and his searing pre-lockdown form seems a distant memory.

Troy Deeney (£6.2m) appeared more interested in winning free-kicks than staying on his feet and hasn’t forced any goalkeeper into a save since the Premier League resumed, while the home side’s hoofball tactics played right into the hands of Bednarek and the galumphing Jannik Vestergaard (£4.5m).

The hosts were poor at the other end, too, guilty of backing off their opponents and, in the case of Southampton’s second strike, gift-wrapping goals.

Pearson said of his side’s display after the game:

We were second best for too long. You can’t concede goals like we have, give gifts to the opponents. It makes the job harder.

We have to go back to showing a cohesion as a group of people. At the moment it is frustrating, because we are not achieving the performances we know we are capable of.

Southampton have been difficult to fathom this season.

Ranked fifth when clubs are filtered by their away results (this was their eighth success on the road in 2019/20), the Saints are rock-bottom when we look at home fixtures.

Their Jekyll-and-Hyde displays, something Hasenhuttl bemoaned in midweek, is perfectly encapsulated by their form in 2020: played 12, won six, lost six.

Sunday’s match was the Saints at their best, with the visitors aggressive in the press, tidy on the ball and robust at the back.

Bednarek and Vestergaard were superb at centre-half, blocking everything on the ground and imperious in the air, and right-back Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) built on a promising 45 minutes at Arsenal with another impressive showing here.

The ever-present James Ward-Prowse (£5.7m), who hasn’t missed a minute of league football this season, showcased his set-piece expertise with a brilliant 81st-minute free-kick, meanwhile.

Admittedly not much of threat from open play these days as one of Hasenhuttl’s ‘number sixes’, seven of the nine goals and assists he has registered this season have been from dead-ball situations.

Onto the main event, though, and someone who has mostly been a reliable pick even through Southampton’s rollercoaster year.

Danny Ings (£7.3m) was by far the most-owned Fantasy asset in this fixture and he rewarded his remaining owners by scoring his 17th and 18th Premier League goals of the season, registering his joint-highest FPL haul of 2019/20 in the process.

Having racked up 177 minutes in Saints’ first two post-restart fixtures, many had thought that Ings was a candidate for rotation on Sunday.

Indeed, Hasenhuttl freshened up his side by making five changes, with the in-form Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) benched because of worries over fatigue – how many times have we heard the Southampton boss use this reasoning for managing Ings’ minutes?

But Ings did start and went on to move within one goal of Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) in the race for the Golden Boot, with his first strike against Watford in particular illustrating his clinical edge.

His second goal, which stemmed from a poor Ben Foster (£4.9m) throw out, was Ings at his predatory, off-the-ball best; this wasn’t the first instance in which we have seen him force or capitalise on a defensive error this season.

The icing on the cake for Ings’ owners came in Hasenhuttl’s post-match press conference, with the Southampton boss suggesting he would field his striker (although he didn’t explicitly say ‘start)’ in all six of his side’s remaining games to help him in the pursuit of individual glory:

I think anything is possible [with regards to the race for the Golden Boot].

We will play with him the last six games and then he will have six chances to score.

If he gets the chance you can see how fantastic his finishing is at the moment. He seems fitter than ever.

He was very hard working in the shutdown and that gives him now fantastic physical options.

While the next three games for Southampton are tricky (both Manchester clubs and Everton) and may slow investment, Saints’ run-in of Brighton, Bournemouth and Sheffield United will likely boost Ings’ ownership figures further should he be still within a shout of the Golden Boot, as seems likely.


Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Femenia (Pussetto 79′), Dawson, Cathcart, Masina (Holebas 73′); Hughes (Welbeck 73′), Capoue; Sarr, Doucoure, Pereyra (Pedro 73′); Deeney.

Southampton XI (4-4-2):  McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Smallbone (Armstrong 65′), Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond; Long (Adams 75′), Ings.

      Salah

        hm optimistic, could be!

    3. The Strokes
      • 1 Year

      Salah or Auba if he scores a couple against Norwich

      1. Patron
        • 1 Year

        ahh, that would hurt me the most... but hes honestly due

    4. Iggy pop
      • 3 Years

      I still think salah will get it

      1. Patron
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        most likely, Auba is not consistent. Danny has to fall down in coming fixtures surely, right... ? (he wont)

    5. Lev Yashin

      Ings

          I am!

        well 7 goals behind, slim chances.

  2. SADIO SANÉ
    • 5 Years
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    this might sound stupid but if TAA -> Williams becomes a regular substitution from now on, does that makes TAA an even better pick, as his CS percentage goes up? Or is he just so attacking that you always want him to get 90 mins?

    1. rnrd
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      TAA can rack up 5 times more points than a 4.3 def while playing 3 times less minutes than him. Not a single owner will frop him, Williams or not

    2. The Strokes
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      Makes it better except if Willams is starting games in the future

    3. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      hmm strange replies, maybe I worded it funny

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • 9 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        first guy thought you were thinking of TAA to Williams as a transfer

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          😀 I like to do maverick moves, but that is next level

    4. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      I think the latter. I never wish for TAA to get subbed off, whereas I often do with other defenders (even Doherty) when they are on a CS past 60 minutes.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        yeah think I agree, nothing better than your defender going off and then the team conceding though - think of all them VVD/Robbo owners 😀

    5. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 52 mins ago

      There were several minute 58 and 59 subs yesterday. That’s the nightmare scenario.

  3. Lev Yashin
    • 7 Years
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    Doherty + Ings -> Aurier + Rashford?

    DDG
    TAA, Aurier, Fernandez
    KdB, Mané, Bruno, Bergwijn,
    Rashford, Jiménez, DCL

    Button, Saïss, Davis, Holgate

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      why sell doherty?

      1. The Strokes
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        this

      2. Lev Yashin
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        Why not?

        Double WOL defence has been OK but won't last forever. Still keeping Saïss, just in case.

        Allows me to upgrade Ings now his fixtures turn.

        What's not to like?

        1. cigan
          • 2 Years
          7 days, 18 hours ago

          I'm more on the form >> fixtures (and don't fix what isn't broken) team and Wolves are doing very well, while highly motivated with chasing CL

          Easier to make an argument for Ings looks but I'd be wary of dropping him as he looks as sharp as he's ever been and aims for the golden boot

          FWIW - my team looks very much like yours and right now I'm looking to ship DCL and Bergwijn first - although other matches this gw could easily change my mind

      3. rnrd
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        thb he's been less influencial lately. Traoré does not help him and Boly and Saiss are considerably less expensive and are a good shield vs doherty owners.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      That will bite your bum

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        Triple up on Wolves - nothing less!

  4. The Strokes
    • 1 Year
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    Pope (ShU)
    TAA ( Avl) – Alonso (Wat) – Aurier (Eve)
    Salah ( Avl) – KDB ( Sou) – Martial (Bou) – Fern (Bou)
    Auba (Wo) – Jimmy (Wol) – Nketiah (Wol)
    Button – Saka (Wol) – Doherty (Wol) – Holgate (Tot)
    1 FT, 0.0 ITb
    Best move?
    A. Auba to Jesus
    B. Auba to Rash
    C. Holgate to ?
    D. Other

  5. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    Guessing I'm all set here?

    Pope Martin
    TAA Soyuncu Taylor (Holgate Williams)
    Salah Mane KdB Fernandes (Dendoncker)
    Rashford Jimenez DCL

    This week I did Ings + Henderson > Rashford + Martin for free. Will be very interested in seeing the City-Pool game and how each team sets up.

    1. Patron
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      Id like a Wolves defender in that team but its pretty good anyways.
      Btw is that Ana Ivanovic - Schweinsteiger on your logo? 😀

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        Next week I'll probably look at Soyuncu > Saiss.

        She is 🙂 I've used this grav for 10 years now, not gonna change it!

        1. Patron
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          nice move if u dont have any other issues.

          haha cool 🙂

        2. RECKLESS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 days, 58 mins ago

          She is a beast! Saw her play in 2016 and she is an amazonian. 6 feet women look very intidimating

        3. Soto Ayam
          8 days, 35 mins ago

          Is it? I always thought it was princess Leia in the bikini costume when she tied to jabba the hut. Maybe time I get my eyes checked

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      I'd be happy with a 0-0
      2 in defence + 2 in midfield
      18 points from 4 is enough. Standards have fallen recently 😛

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        No thanks! I want a heavy Liverpool win with a KdB pen.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          😀

        2. The Strokes
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 1 hour ago

          I would love a 1-1 with Salah and B. Silva as scorers
          (I have left KDB and TAA on the bench, only played Salah, might pay a heavy price on this or it might be a very good move wait and see)

    3. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      No wolves defense??

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        I'd like some but this isn't a WC team. Will probably slowly move them in as they get good fixtures. Next week with Sheffield UTD away seems good. Can do Soyuncu > Saiss.

    4. DannyDrinkVodka
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      not tempted at all by Bruno>Martial?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        I made my bed. It's too sideways. Will do if I WC but not wasting a transfer.

    5. Beavis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      When are you gonna WC/BB? 33/34 or 34/35 seem like the best combos imo so I've activated WC this week.

    6. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      Salah can still go for golden boot so he will surely play more than Mane for example. I am actually considering bringing in Ings after Mancity lol. Now my team focus is top 4 and golden boot contenders...Relegation scrappers are not even trying. I am looking at you Watford Bou

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 days, 57 mins ago

        Mane is only two goals behind Salah. If Salah can go for the Golden Boot why can't Mane?

  6. Tony Martial

    GTG?

    Allison

      Very sexy..probably play Dcl over Foden especially if he plays vs Liverpool else its erotic enough

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 45 mins ago

        I agree it Foden starts vs livepool I will play DCL if he doesn’t I’ll keep him on

  7. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years

    Auba, Mount, Barnes & Stevens out for -12? Worth it?

    1. Tempestic

      Who u getting in?

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        Martial for sure. Maybe Kane & Pulisic.

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years

      But why?

    3. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 days, 54 mins ago

      Wait for the games to play out. I would probably do just Auba + Mount to Kane + Pulisic/Martial as Barnes has CPL

    I trying to build my wc33 team and cant decide wether salah is worth keeping due to rotation. What is everyone else thinking ?

    Salah ?
    Or
    No salah ?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      I was no Salah until yesterday, now I'm potentially Salah AND Mane again - he will end the highest scoring player imo, Liverpool technically have more to play for than City too

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 1 hour ago

        just expect him to go off at 70' more than usual

      2. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 days, 53 mins ago

        Why what happend? Hasnt Klopp said he would rotate more often after City game?

        1. southcoastbeast
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          7 days, 23 hours ago

          Yes exactly why you cant go without him, proper rank killer if you dont, but if he comes off will nothing or just 1 attacking return, he could be a waste of money.

      Similar situation. 2 FT's and no idea what to do with them.

      I think you are set. Just let it burn.

        Cheers mate! Still some time to consider...

  14. Pep Roulette

    Auba, Barnes & Mount to Kane, Martial & Cantwell for -8?

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      could work yeah

  15. Konstaapeli
    • 3 Years
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    Here's my lot. Got two FT's but really no idea what to do. 0.0 in the bank.

    Any suggestions?

    Pope
    TAA – Maguire – Lascelles
    Mane – KDB – Son – Bruno
    Rashy – Tammy – Jimi

    Martin – Douzi – Robinson – Simpson

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      8 days, 1 hour ago

      Pretty much the same below mate. Any players you want? I’m thinking Ings and Martial depending how this GW goes

    2. Major League Shocker

      If you don't want Ings, then probably switch to 3-5-2 or 4-4-2, Tammy -> Nketiah (1st sub) and upgrade Guendouzi to Pulisic/Foden in a 3-5-2 or Robinson/Simpson to a better defender in a 4-4-2.

    3. JACK ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 38 mins ago

      Son to Mahrez ?

  16. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 4 Years
    8 days, 1 hour ago

    Early thoughts on this lot with 2FTs, 0.3itb? Like the look of Ings, Martial with Aurier/Saiss as decent cheap moves. Will see how the GW progressed of course.

    Martinez
    TAA • Doherty • Lascelles
    Salah • Son • KDB • Bruno
    Jimmy • Rash • DCL
    (3.9, Holgate, Kiko, Guendouzi)

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 57 mins ago

      Transferring in Aurier could be a good move to cover both Spurs CS and attacking points

    2. Don Kloppeone

      I’ll just wait for the answers to come in on yours shall I? 😉

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Hahaha 🙂 how you shaping up mate?

          Well still same team as you atm. Just waiting until Thursday to make a decision.

          I’m at 21k OR atm so would like to get a jump on rank so these decisions now are big!

          Can’t decide whether the sideways switch of Bruno > Martial is worth it. Or maybe to drop DCL and get Foden or a stronger attacking defender

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 4 Years
            7 days, 23 hours ago

            Yeah similar decisions. At OR 18k so very similar also. Blew my captain in jimmy though 🙁

              I was at 18k before the weekend. I have armband on Salah so hoping he delivers!

    How does this WC33 BB34 look and any suggestions for a 5.7 Def?

    Another option could be Bruno to Mahrez or 8.9mid and AWB in the last def spot.

    Pope Martinez
    TAA Doherty Saiss Aurier 5.7def
    Salah Martial KDB Bruno Foden
    Rashford Jimenez Nketiah

    do you guys think Azpilicueta is worth the investment?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 56 mins ago

      probably yes, Captain, nailed and has the potential to get attacking points

    2. Soto Ayam
      8 days, 33 mins ago

      Yes

    3. JabariParkersEyelid

    Who would you rather have for the next few, Calvert-Lewin or Foden?

    Considering a change of formation by doing DCL + Guendouzi -> Nketiah + Foden with my 2 FT. Seems like Guendouzi has been frozen out of the squad.

    1. JACK ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 40 mins ago

      Foden if you’re chasing

  21. JACK ARMY

    Current team - top of most Mini Leagues with a mid 2k rank - want to hold league positions but try & get a best ever rank...

    Martínez
    TAA, Doherty, Saiss
    KDB, Salah, Fernandes, Martial
    DCL, Rashford, Jiminez

    Martin, Davis, Lascelles, Kiko

    Considering DCL & Jiminez out for Jesus & Nketiah - what do you reckon???

    Will be happy to rotate formation with those bench players all getting minutes currently

    All thoughts gratefully received

      b, but he might start next one from the bench.

  24. Nightcrawler

    Very hard to fit KDB in when u have a midfield of

    Son Salah Bruno Martial Saka

    1. JACK ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 days, 37 mins ago

      Lose Son

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 37 mins ago

      You don't have to!

    3. Patron
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 32 mins ago

      I have the same mid but with Puli instead of Saka, probably getting rid of either Son or Bruno, Bruno most likely, but in that case its Mahrez not KDB...

    4. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 24 mins ago

      Son Salah Bruno Martial Mahrez

      No need for KgB

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 21 mins ago

      KDB being on pens, DFK's & Corners for Man City is just too much to turn down at 11.0

      At 9.5 it's just utterly ridiculous - even if he gets benched for one or two of the remaining games

      Not having him just seems a bit like classic FPL overthinking/trying to be too clever imo

      Not that it can't work of course, it definitely could, personally I'd find him a very very hard player to not have in my side

      1. james 101
        • 8 Years
        8 days, 12 mins ago

        Agreed

        Mine are:

        Salah Martial KDB Son Bruno

        Tempted by mahrez too tbh.

  25. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Alonso & Azpi for the next 4 too much? Nice looking fixtures with attacking threat

    1. Patron
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 33 mins ago

      too much honestly

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 33 mins ago

      1 is OK, both too much

    3. Soto Ayam
      8 days, 30 mins ago

      Not too much if you think they're the best options you can afford

  26. D.Glynn

    DDG

    Button, Holgate, Robinson, Guendouzi

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      8 days, 30 mins ago

      One of those rare ones. Either burn a transfer or do a sideways move like Bruno to mahrez/martial.

      Wouldn't want to sell anyone.

    2. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      8 days, 22 mins ago

      i would wait until after city-pool on thursday, then decide. Personally, i don´t like that defence structure-wise, in the sense i like the picks one by one but all except TAA is below 4.6 so you need money elsewhere to upgrade, it gives you little flexibility.

  28. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    seen a lot of posts looking for the best striker sub 6m anyone else thinking about a little punt on maupay for the NOR game then bench ?

    1. Patron
      • 1 Year
      8 days, 28 mins ago

      had him once, never getting him again in my life. Little fraud.

    2. JabariParkersEyelid
      8 days, 26 mins ago

      Don't trust the rotation in that side.

      1. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        8 days, 20 mins ago

        this id good point as you want that third striker to be nailed, and as less rotation as possible because whenever you need him it is so annoying if he is benched and Potter is one of the worst in that case as it is very difficult to predict when and why people get rested.

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Could be good. Joelinton may be worth considering as well at home vs WHU. Has a decent run as well if any issues with your team comes up.

  29. Jeremiah

    Any ideas for this bunch? 2 FT's and no idea where to use them!

    Martinez - Button
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier - Lascelles - Kiko
    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Saka - Luiz
    Jiminez - DCL - Rashford

    Cheers! 🙂

      • 3 Years
      8 days, 11 mins ago

      by thursday night you probably want to use one transfer, things might happen to your team so you´ll be glad to have them. Just wait and see. My guess as it is now KDB won´t start vs Southampton. Is that enough to take him out is another story.

  30. Dynamic Duos

      What are the parameters?

      If none, Rashford
