The formation switch behind Newcastle’s form as Saint-Maximin downs Cherries

Bournemouth 1-4 Newcastle United

  • Goals: Dan Gosling (£4.9m) | Dwight Gayle (£5.0m), Sean Longstaff (£5.0m), Miguel Almiron (£5.8m), Valentino Lazaro (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Nathan Ake (£4.9m) | Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) x3, Jonjo Shelvey (£4.9m)
  • Bonus: Saint-Maximin x3, Shelvey, Gayle x2

There are a number of attractive Gameweek 33+ fixtures this weekend, with Chelsea hosting Watford, Liverpool entertaining Aston Villa and Manchester City facing a Southampton side who have the poorest home record in the division.

Manchester United v Bournemouth might be the pick of the bunch, however, if Wednesday night’s match at the Vitality Stadium was anything to go by.

While Villa have shown a bit of defensive resilience since the mid-June restart, the Cherries have been abysmal.

Home fixtures against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United in Gameweeks 30+ and 32+ would have been ones that Eddie Howe will have targeted given the horror show of a schedule that now follows but his side have emerged pointless from those two games, having shipped six goals to two of the lowest-scoring teams in the Premier League in the process.

Perhaps it was the ‘must-win’ nature of those two matches that opened up space for their opposition, and perhaps Howe will adopt a more conservative approach when his side head to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Bournemouth had made life difficult for Wolverhampton Wanderers last Wednesday, for example, restricting them to just two shots on target and one big chance.

But it’s difficult to overstate just how atrocious they were against Steve Bruce’s mid-table outfit last night.

The heads seem to drop far too quickly: this was the 17th Premier League game this season in which the Cherries have conceded first and they are winless in all of them, drawing only twice.

Howe now faces a monumental task to pick his beleaguered troops up with less than 72 hours separating their Gameweek 32+ and 33+ fixtures.

Speaking after the match, the Bournemouth head coach said:

A really disappointing night, we never recovered from the early goal. The manner of it, as well, was a tough one for us to take, in a game where the onus was on us to make the running in the game. Newcastle counter-attacked very well.

I don’t doubt that [the players are giving me everything]. I can see close at hand what it means to the players, how much they’re hurting.

It’s more psychologically is the big thing for us, the confidence, the expectation – all these things linked together I think are damaging us at the moment.

The next few games are very difficult on paper but maybe they’re the types of games that we need. We’ve picked up points against the big teams, we’ve done well against them.

The opening goal on Wednesday was self-inflicted, with Jefferson Lerma (£4.8m) giving away possession just outside his box; five seconds later, Dwight Gayle (£5.0m) had slotted under Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) to put the visitors 1-0 up.

Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) was the provider of Gayle’s strike and went on to register a hat-trick of assists, next teeing up Sean Longstaff (£5.0m) with some superb work near the by-line and then setting substitute Miguel Almiron (£5.8m) free to chip Ramsdale after the break.

Valentino Lazaro (£5.3m) rounded off the scoring for the Magpies with a dinked finish in the final quarter of an hour and it could have even been worse for the Cherries: Saint-Maximin and Andy Carroll (£5.4m) both tested the reflexes of Ramsdale, Lazaro struck the underside of the bar and Isaac Hayden (£4.4m) missed horribly from six yards with the goal gaping.

Bear in mind, this is Newcastle we’re talking about: a side that had scored more than two goals on only two occasions this season, one of which was against ten-man Sheffield United in Gameweek 30+.

For all that Bournemouth were woeful, immense credit has to go to an atypically gung-ho Newcastle and Bruce.

Saint-Maximin was outstanding, registering his third double-digit haul in four Gameweeks and handed a breather after 61 minutes ahead of the visit of a West Ham United side without a clean sheet in 11 matches.

Since the Premier League’s resumption last month, only Manchester City (nine) have scored more goals than the Magpies (eight).

So what has changed?

Firstly, it’s very important to acknowledge the standard of opposition: Newcastle have faced three of the most out-of-form teams in the division since the restart in the shape of ten-man Sheffield United, Villa and Bournemouth.

Against Manchester City in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final, a team they take on in Gameweek 34+, they were absolutely battered; as well as Pep Guardiola’s side, the Magpies also have to face Spurs and Liverpool in the run-in.

But integral to their recent performances has been a formation change.

Adopting Rafael Benitez’s 5-4-1 set-up for much of the season and operating with a defence-first mindset, Bruce finally threw off the shackles in Gameweek 28, rolling out a 4-2-3-1 for the visit of Burnley.

Nothing much changed at first, with the Clarets holding Newcastle to a 0-0 draw, but there have been more encouraging signs since, with ten goals scored against West Bromwich Albion, Sheffield United and Bournemouth in three league and cup games.

Asked about his system change after the game, Bruce said:

After watching us against Leicester [in Gameweek 7, when the Magpies briefly moved to a back four] I didn’t think we were ready for change. The players had played a certain way, had played deep, had played on the counter-attack and were really comfortable in it. So I didn’t really want to change much too quickly.

When we became less of a goal threat, that’s when I decided to we needed our flair players up the pitch, rather than defending.

On Saint-Maximin, Bruce revealed that the Frenchman had been close to being benched:

He’s such a naturally good footballer and yesterday I wasn’t planning on starting him because he’s already played three games and to play four in 11 days I thought is maybe too much.

But he bounced into training yesterday and he was full of himself, so I said ‘why not, let’s see if we can get another hour out of him’. He was terrific.

The only downside for the Magpies was the loss of a clean sheet in stoppage time, with Martin Dubravka (£5.1m) having previously been scarcely troubled save for a long-range David Brooks (£6.2m) effort that clipped the bar and a Josh King (£6.1m) header correctly ruled out for offside.

It was ex-Mag Dan Gosling (£4.9m) who bundled the ball in from on the goalline in the 93rd minute, depriving Newcastle of an 11th clean sheet of 2019/20.

The in-form Matt Ritchie (£5.3m) was an unused substitute having been an injury doubt for the game, while Longstaff and Javier Manquillo (£4.3m) picked up muscle problems during the match.


Bournemouth XI (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Smith, S Cook (Mepham 80′), Ake, Kelly; Lerma (Gosling 75′), Billing (L Cook 46′); Danjuma (Stanislas 62′), Brooks (Wilson 62′), King; Solanke.

Newcastle United XI (4-2-3-1): Dubravka; Krafth, Fernandez, Lascelles, Manquillo (Yedlin 73′); Bentaleb, Shelvey; Saint-Maximin (Lazaro 62′), Longstaff (Almiron 34′), Joelinton (Hayden 72′); Gayle (Carroll 62′).

          To Saint Maximin or Mahrez?

    Last night was tough to swallow only owning DCL...

      This gw has been shite in general

        Glad to see i am not alone!

    2. Easy Cheesy

      Rank plummeted from 25k to 50k in one day

  4. Vazza
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Is it worth switching Rashford to Greenwood?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I’m considering this but only because I have 3 United anyway and can’t do DCL > Greenwood.

        Could afford DCL > Kane or Sarr > Son if I made the move.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Even though he seems unfit, I think you should be patient with Rashford

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          It might not be about Rashford form though. Greenwood is 4m + cheaper and in good form.
          That extra money could be used elsewhere.

      3. gers23
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Rashford will come good imo

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I think he will too.

      25k to 50k OR in one day. Tough

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

          Painful. Need a high scoring 5-5 tonight. Mane, salah and foden hat-tricks

    • King Kohli
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      Playing BB this week. Trailing ML leader by 40 pts.
      Best move here?

      A. Son + Cantwell + Jota > Martial + Mahrez + Greenwood
      B. Son + Jota + Basham > Mahrez + Greenwood + AWB
      C. Jota + Cantwell + Doherty > Greenwood + Mahrez/Martial + Boly
      D. Jota + Basham > Greenwood + AWB
      E. Any other suggestions

        But really depends on what happens with Mahrez & Son tonight.

      Any thoughts on these moves..

      Auba/Barnes out

      Y or N

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I think there are better options than Rashford at the moment

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        What’s Holgates goal threat like? Because Lascelles has none. 6pts or bust with him

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Holgate

          • 10 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          Holgate the same pal, useless in the other box. Wanted to do Kiko but Greenwood went up last night even though he was at 95.4 at midnight 🙁

        Similar thoughts as you Greenwood vs AWB, probably A

    • AC Yew

      Hey guys need a but of advice on my team please:

      Henderson
      TAA Doherty Taylor
      KDB Bruno Sterling Grealish
      Jimenez Rashford Nketiah
      Leno Egan Stevens Saka

      Moves i could make include

      Sterling + Grealish ----> Salah + Foden for a -4
      Sterling + Grealish -----> Mahrez Pulisic which also facilitates Stevens -> AWB for a -8

      Anything else look better?

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 13 days ago

      For someone ranked 270k how important is it to keep Jimenez?

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Nobody is essential.
        He had only 3 double digit hauls all year

      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        I asked last night about dropping him. Look rubbish against Villa. You don’t watch him and be petrified if you don’t own. I’d ship if you have a good plan. What you thinking?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I agree the fixtures don't look that great too now. I'm looking at Richarlison & Jimenez to Antonio & Jesus for a hit this week. But I could also just do Richarlison to Mahrez/Pulisic for free.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            Although given your rank the Jesus and Antonio pints could be worth it. Depends how you are doing mini league wise too. GL mate

      3. King Kohli
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 13 days ago

        Problem is lack of replacements.
        There are literally no forwards doing well, Auba got really lucky and has tough fixtures going ahead.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 13 days ago

          I agree with that too. I don't like anyone below his price. But I'm tempted to take a punt on Jesus.

      2FTs, 0.3ITB. Best move?

      A. DCL >> Greenwood
      B. Son+Guendouzi >> Martial+ASM (Bench DCL)
      C. DCL+Son+Guendouzi >> Martial+Pulisic+Nketiah (-4)

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

          Can I just ask, why is everyone suddenly scrambling to try and get Greenwood in? Is that third Utd spot no better reserved for a regular starter? I get that it enables money to be spent elsewhere, but I am just genuinely curious if I am missing something with Greenwood.

          I like B in your instance, however, I would wait until Spurs' game is finished tonight before ditching Son.

                  In my opinion, Greenwood will prove to be a trap. I do not expect James to be sitting on the bench for the rest of the season and just making cameos towards the end of the games.

                With 2FTs I need to burn one and A makes sense for this GW. Then I can switch to a more powerful midfield after that. Otherwise I drop Son if he looks as bad value as he did last GW

              Like all 3 moves honestly.

              Let see what Son does tonight.
              I think go for C if he disappoints again.

              DCL + Guendo > Willian/ ASM + Greenwood?

                Possible with ASM, yes

            Auba to: Kane/Jesus or

            Which transfers to make?
            A) Auba and Grealish to Rashford and Mahrez
            B) Auba and Grealish to Jesus and Martial
            C) Auba, Grealish and Stevens to Greenwood, Son/Mahrez and TAA for -4

            Well Richarlison may have made my decision easier

            Is Richarlison & Rashford > Salah & Greenwood the right move here for free, or anything else you would suggest with 2 FT?

            Foster. 4.0
            TAA. AWB. Doherty. Lascelles. Holgate
            KDB. Son. Bruno. Saka. *Richarlison*

            1. Tonyawesome69

              Yes

              I'd say so.

              I'm weighing up:

              A) DCL & Son to Greenwood & Salah
              B) Richie to AWB

              Trying to decide if I want Greenwood to be my 3rd United, the defence looks great value.

              Ederson
              TAA, Doherty, Richie
              KDB, Fernandes, Son, Pulisic
              DCL, Rashford, Jimenez

              Button, Holgate, Hayden, Ngakia

                I think so yes

                  I would say yes

                  Probably the best option under 10 mil.

                            Oh and in response to your question, I’d play it sooner rather than later on the basis that there could some rotation towards the latter part of the season and it might be difficult to field 15 players that actually play.

                      Would you:

                      A) Guendouzi to Saint Maximin

                      or

                      B) Alli to Mahrez

                      I have no City or Newcastle attackers.

                      What’s the deal with Tammy now? Heard he was awful last night. Does he have his place back for Watford? I still have him so would start if so

                      Or simply a 50/50 with giroud?

                        50/50 but Giroud more likely now IMO

                        Frank was not happy

                            If CHE defence was poor last night then maybe give Sarr a chance

                              I have both.
                              I’ll be shipping Sarr this week and benching DCL.

                                As a 1 week punt, would you do Sarr -> ASM or Sarr -> J.Bowen? I am planning to WC the week after probably. Rest of team is

                                Also, is ASM just a bandwagon on the back of one decent game where he got 3 assists, or do we think he is genuinely going to score more?
