Scout Notes

Pulisic and Willian continue fine FPL form as West Ham gear up for fixture swing

West Ham United 3-2 Chelsea

  • Goals: Tomas Soucek (£4.8m), Michail Antonio (£6.9m), Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.2m) | Willian (£7.1m) x2
  • Assists: Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) x2, Antonio | Christian Pulisic (£7.0m) x2
  • Bonus: Willian x3, Antonio x2, Bowen x1

A late goal from substitute Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.2m) won West Ham United a game of twists, turns and one contentious VAR decision.

Such is the state of play at both ends of the table that the result could prove crucial for the Hammers’ Premier League survival and damaging for Chelsea’s Champions League aspirations.

But from a Fantasy perspective, it was not quite such a dramatic evening.

Of the players who brought in decent Fantasy Premier League (FPL) returns, only Chelsea midfielders Willian (£7.1m), who scored twice, and Christian Pulisic (£7.0m), who claimed assists for both goals, could be found in at least five per cent of Fantasy squads.

West Ham’s four main contributors – Yarmolenko, Tomas Soucek (£4.8m), Michail Antonio (£6.9m) and Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) – are owned by roughly 120,000 FPL managers. In total.

For context, Kevin De Bruyne‘s (£10.7m) ownership is 32 times larger than that. All by his ginger self.

That said, the Fantasy repercussions could linger longer than last night’s hauls.

Chelsea coach Frank Lampard didn’t spare all of the horses in his line-up choices, making just two changes from the side that beat Manchester City six days previously and starting five players who were given extended run-outs in the weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester City.

That was proof, if it were ever actually needed, that rotation won’t be a major issue for those managers looking to capitalise on the Blues’ next four fixtures, which involve Watford and Norwich City at home and trips to Crystal Palace and Sheffield United.

The fight for Champions League spots is now so intense – two places sought by four teams separated by just three points – that Lampard can’t afford to rest his key players.

Last night, the stars were Willian and Pulisic, who have both appeared in all four matches since football returned.

The Brazilian, owned by 5% in FPL, is in sparkling form, with four goals and an assist from the last four Gameweeks.

He made his mark from set-pieces against West Ham, converting a penalty – his second in successive league games – and then a free-kick, both times following fouls on Pulisic.

The American has been equally productive since the restart, with two goals and as many assists since Gameweek 30+, although he was profligate when blasting over the bar in the first half following a clever dummy from Tammy Abraham‘s (£7.5m) clever step-over.

Small wonder that the pair are the most popular transfer targets among Chelsea assets heading into Gameweek 33+, although Mason Mount (£6.2m), who created a couple of chances during a 37-minute cameo at the London Stadium, and Abraham are also attracting interest.

The England striker started his first league match since Gameweek 25 last night, but managed only one attempt, off-target, and a single chance created during an underwhelming performance that was in stark contrast to his dynamic turn from the bench in the win over Man City.

Lampard was left to rue his side’s defensive shortcomings against the Hammers:

There’s without a doubt a good group of players in there, but then when you analyse the consistency, you feel a game like this is coming. Again, that shows there’s work to do. If we are opening up to try and score that winning goal then we have to be prepared to run back the other way and defend. And defend better.

West Ham exposed a weakness at set-pieces for which Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.4m) deserves a sizeable chunk of the blame.

The Spaniard struggled to command his area last night; a fault that led to both of Soucek’s openers.

The midfielder thought he’d scored his first-ever West Ham goal when he hooked home following Antonio’s botched attempt from a cross, only for VAR to rule the Englishman was lying offside, which he was (just), and interfering with play, which he really wasn’t.

As it happened, the decision proved more derisory than costly, as another corner led to another Soucek goal, this time from a header back across goal and past the hapless Kepa.

In fairness, the Hammers’ other strikes could not be laid at the keeper’s door, with their second an emphatic finish from Antonio which gave Bowen his second assist of the night.

But the defending of Antonio Rudiger (£6.0m) and Marcos Alonso (£6.2m) certainly left a lot to be desired regarding Yarmolenko’s winner.

The Ukraine international finished sweetly from Antonio’s pass on the break, but he went past Rudiger all too easily and was helped no end by the fact that Alonso neglected to track his run in the first place.

Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet since Gameweek 22 and only six all season – that’s just one more than Norwich and Aston Villa – although, amazingly, Villa have conceded double (553) the attempts that Chelsea (276) have allowed.

Equally mystifying is that only Manchester City have allowed fewer shots than the 276 conceded by Chelsea, and only two teams (City and Liverpool) have better tallies for shots on target conceded than the Blues.

Whatever the causes of all that, it’s clear Chelsea defenders are not featuring highly on Fantasy managers’ wish lists, although Alonso’s attacking threat against the Hammers will be highlighted in the Members Analysis section below.

West Ham assets have not proved any more popular, but there’s a differential option or two to be had as David Moyes’ men prepare for the final six, potentially mad, matches of the season.

The madness will almost certainly arise from half of those fixtures involving do-or-die clashes with fellow relegation candidates Norwich, Watford and Villa.

The rest of their schedule is less fraught, but could prove testing for their goalscoring potential, as the defences of Burnley, Newcastle and Manchester United are among the tightest in the league.

In Antonio, Moyes has found a gem that he was keen to praise post-match.

We need him so much. He led the line really well.

Fantasy managers could be tempted by the midfielder if he remains in an out-of-position role up front – likely as the club’s recognised strikers are currently either injured or out of favour.

Bowen is another who could be worth a look as the January signing has a goal and two assists from his five Premier League starts now.

Both he and Antonio are hardly popular – owned by 0.1% and 0.8% respectively – which marks them out as major differentials.

And although Gameweek 21 was the last time the Hammers kept a clean sheet, their schedule involves a number of games that don’t exactly scream goals, so a low-cost punt such as Issa Diop (£4.3m) might be worth considering as well.

What’s for definite is that neither side is about to start thinking of the beach any time soon, leaving Fantasy managers with a number of motivated players to pick from as the season draws to  a close.


West Ham United United XI (4-5-1): Fabianski; Fredericks, Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek, Rice, Bowen (Yarmolenko 78′), Fornals (Balbuena 90′), Lanzini (Wilshere 68′); Antonio.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Kovacic (Mount 52′), Kante; Pulisic, Barkley (Loftus-Cheek 63′), Willian; Abraham (Giroud 63′).

    I have a decent team imho but so many uncertainties regarding captaincy this week.
    Mo, Kdb, Jimmy all have question marks about starting. Son’s Spurs dont overwhelm atm. Is going with Bruno (c) the most logical thing then?
    Very tight ML and still fighting for a top 10k OR finish (ML lead 18 points and OR now 15k).
    To Bruno or not to Bruno, that’s the question!

    1. ludaslol
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I'm thinking either Bruno or Martial. Both should start I think and bou looking awful

      1. sminkypinky
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Indeed they are.

        1. sminkypinky

          • 8 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I would have preferred Mo before but changed my mind yesterday. Pool looked content, not hungry. So many final touch slipups. Granted Klopp will tear them a new one so may bounce back. I just dont know. Bruno seems safer but if I want that top 10k now is not a time to play safe.

          1. Rasping Drive (BSC Small Bo…
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I know what you mean. You could see Klopp wasn’t happy at all after the game so you would expect some kind of rebound.

            However, Villa have improved somewhat at the back since the restart, conceding 4 goals in 4 games, with 11 shots conceded on target. Bournemouth have conceded almost 2x more goals in 1 fewer game, so captaining a United player would seem the way to go. I can understand your reluctance to captain Bruno again after having been burned but I do think he is one of the better choices.

            Good luck in getting into the top 10k; I have the same goal, just 2k behind you.

      It’s the most logical thing I would say, was subbed after 60 mins last time out so should be even more nailed and perhaps play the full 90

      1. sminkypinky
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        This. Bruno burned me and a few others when Martial bagged a hatty so that’s still healing but showed his class again this week.

    1 month, 6 days ago

    I probably know what answers will be but still asking 🙂

    Is it worth to bring AWB for hit this GW ?? Or just play Taylor?
    Lascells first on bench. I think bench strength is more important so .....

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Play Taylor if for a hit.

      1. Amey

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Gut feeling is rashford for me.
            Martial is safest pick though.

      1. screamer73
        • 4 Years

        It is, considering how others are doing. Mini league rivals reduced my lead from 150+ to less than 100.

  15. LewanGOALski
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Allison and TAA relatively safe from rotation?
    Or rather go VVD over TAA?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      VVD safer with Matip out I think, but TAA still worth it imo

    2. Najoman86
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I dare say Allison is the safest, followed by VVD. TAA could see some rotation

  16. Najoman86
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Team for the upcoming GW-

    Pope
    TAA Maguire Saiss Aurier
    KDB Son Martial Pulisic
    Jiminez Rashford
    (Martinez DCL Saka Lascelles)

    1FT & £3m in the kitty

    I'm thinking Son to-
    A. Salah or Mane
    B. Sterling
    C. Mahrez
    D. Hold & roll FT

    Any thoughts appreciated

    What to do here?
    DDG (Button)
    TAA Aurier Doherty (Lascelles)(Simpson)
    Mane KDB Fernandes Bergwijn (Saka)
    Rashford Jimenez DCL

    2ft,0.0 itb

    Bergwijn to Pulisic or Bergwijn to Mahrez and downgrade DCL?

    1. screamer73
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Have almost the same team. 13/15 (see a couple of posts above). Clueless tbh. Considering Pulisic.

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I have a not dissimilar team and I'm jettisoning DCL - his time is up.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Agree, have had enough of him myself

    3. Miguel Sanchez

      Mahrez and downgarde DCL

        Cheers
        to Ayew maybe?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Or Nkeitah

  20. Miguel Sanchez
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Can bring in a City mid this GW:

    A) Foden
    B) Mahrez (-4)

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      B

    2. Ibra
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I'm pretty sure B starts but A doesn't so B.

    DCL is a headache

    1. jdp219
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      And because I just dropped him, a brace incoming...

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I'm considering selling, benching and playing...lol.

        1. jdp219
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Spurs defense didn't look good, so I hesitated to sell DCL ahead of gw33, but I needed United cover, so that forced my hand. From what I've seen, though, few here are giving him another opportunity to turn it around.

    2. Nabs Kebabs
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Son is another headache.

      1. jdp219
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Haha. Him, I kept.

    3. sminkypinky
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I dropped him. Time to get aggressive Nabs.

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Oh I've been playing aggressive all season...about 60 pts worth of hits 😆

        There's a lack of options to bring in for DCL. I think i may boot Son instead.

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          I like Ings but not pens with JWP and fixtures arent the best
          Kane looks overpriced to me

          Could go down to Nketiah/Greenwood but there's not much I'd do with the extra funds...

          1. sminkypinky
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I went with greenwood since he, like Foden, look the real deal now. Why worry about team worth now?

            1. Nabs Kebabs
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 6 days ago

              Greenwood does look pretty good. But I actually already have 3 United players (AWB, Bruno, Rash) so can't go to him without losing one of them.

  22. Ibra
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Which one you would do?

    A) Mane + Son -> Salah + Mahrez (and next gw Hayden -> Foden)
    B) Mane -> Sterling

    My current team:

    Patricio
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier
    KDB - Bruno - Mane - Son
    Rashford - Jimenez - Greenwood

    Martin - Lascelles - Kiko - Hayden

    1. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Just son to mahrez...mane to salah is a bit of a waste

      1. Ibra
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        But Salah is on pens and he looked better yesterday. He also has a good opportunity to win a golden boot so I'm pretty sure he will play a lot.

        1. n14mul
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Also a small chance he could be rested. Played a full 90 if uour happy to take a hit for it then its cool

          1. Ibra
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I'm not taking a hit. I have 2ft.

  23. n14mul
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Thought on wc draft please

    Martinez mccarthy
    Taa boly Taylor lascles holgate
    Salah kdb martial bruno mahrez
    Ings greenwood jimi

    I have bb left hence can't have fodder on the bench

    1. jdp219
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Looks good.

  24. Nabs Kebabs
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    I owned Mahrez for the DGW and was very happy with him. But I'm not so sure how good of an option he is now. Pep only plays him on the RW...Sterling, Bernardo and Foden can also play there. When he plays he will get points...but will he play enough? I'm torn.

    1. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      nice humble brag. Of course he's azgood option just look at his minutes. If you want nailed swap him for Dwight McNeil

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        it wasn't a humble brag...I already bragged about it after the DGW 😆

    2. Stinglikeabee
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      I know what you mean. I would guess he will play next match but after that who knows..

    3. Nabs Kebabs
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      With how kak Jesus is, Sterling could get more minutes as a striker...resulting in more minutes for Mahrez....

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      he should play the next match and even 30 minutes might be enough for subsequent ones. I'm actually thinking of having three MCI midfielders, but it does have its disadvantages.

      1. sminkypinky
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I pondered this too. Kdb, Foden, Mahrez is cheap and effective. Needs a pllayable bench though.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          This is true. The danger is that two of them get 30 minutes each week and we miss out on other sparkly toys in midfield. A veritable feast of goodies there at the moment.

          1. sminkypinky
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            😀

      2. Nabs Kebabs
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        I've got KDB and defininitely want Foden, probably next week. Considering Mahrez. So there's a solid chance I'll have triple city mids too

      A aslong as your ready for him to be restes this week

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        Thats obviously my main concern. Thanks

    Hi guys
    Would you do Nketiah to Greenwood?
    Any other ideas?

    Foster/Button
    VVD/Lascelles/Fernandez/Saiss/Simpson
    Salah/Kdb/Fernandes/Guendouzi/Son
    Nketiah/Rashford/Jimenez

    1ft 0.9itb

  27. Stinglikeabee
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    hey guys, any improvements on this FT?

    Ryan
    VVD AWB Taylor
    Salah Mahrez Fernando Saint-max Sterling
    Jesus Rashford
    Subs Connolly Lamotey El Mohamedy

  28. Nabs Kebabs
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    How has Son been looking? How has he been playing with Kane?

    1. GAMBIT
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Absolute dross

    2. Stinglikeabee
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Not great but he's assisted Kane twice in recent matches but I captained him for goals. He needs to play through the middle but that won't happen.

  29. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Crazy to consider Mahrez over Fernandes and go double ManUtd defence?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Yes

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      It's not crazy but Fernandes is a must own imo so I wouldn't

    3. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      nothing in fpl is crazy unless you're doing it with your undercrackers on your head and 2 pencils up your nose

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Pap-pah.:D

  30. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 6 days ago

    Would you rather
    A) Play 1 of Lascelles/Saka/Ayew every week
    B) Play 1 of Lascelles/Foden/Connolly every week

    Might have to play 2 of them in case of an emergency

    1. n14mul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      2 but maybe taylor over lascelles
