Willian and Pulisic make case for Chelsea double-up with Norwich on horizon

Crystal Palace 2-3 Chelsea

  • Goals: Wilfried Zaha (£6.6m), Christian Benteke (£5.7m) | Olivier Giroud (£6.6m), Christian Pulisic (£7.2m), Tammy Abraham (£7.4m)
  • Assists: Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m) | Willian x2 (£7.2m), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m)
  • Bonus Points: Willian x3, Pulisic x2, van Aanholt x1

Willian (£7.2m) and Christian Pulisic (£7.2m) underlined their Fantasy credentials once again as Chelsea beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on Tuesday evening.

The two midfielders were at the heart of the transfer debate for Gameweek 34+ with managers trying to discern between the pair. Well, once again, the comparisons mattered little in the end as both players rewarded their respective owners at Selhurst Park.

In fact, considering Chelsea host Norwich’s porous defence in Gameweek 36+, the case for owning both Willian and Pulisic gets stronger with each match. After all, Frank Lampard’s men have now hit two or more goals in every match since the Premier League restart.

Both players have also delivered attacking returns simultaneously in each of the last four Gameweeks and neither one looks like letting up.

As per usual, it was Willian who ended up with the most points on the night, his two assists and three bonus making for a third double-figure haul since Gameweek 31+. 

His owners will also feel as if they could have come away with more at Selhurst Park, increasing his appeal for the coming matches.

In the 31st minute, Pulisic pressed through the middle of Palace’s defence, spotting Willian catching up with play from the left. The American laid it off to his Brazilian colleague who breezed into the box and forced a decent save from Vicente Guaita (£4.9m).

Then, as the game was hurtling towards a frenetic conclusion, Willian darted inside from his station on the right-wing and squared it to Mason Mount (£6.1m), Guaita denying the Brazilian an assist as he tipped the Englishman’s curled effort around the post.

In the 89th minute, Pulisic made another trademark run down the left-hand side, his lofted cross caught on the volley by Willian but blocked by Patrick van Aanholt (£5.6m).

In the last four matches, he has averaged 11 points per game and, as we have covered here, is capable of pulling in Fantasy points from several different avenues. The Brazilian has penalties, direct free-kicks and set-pieces but also offers plenty of creativity and goal threat from open play as evidenced in the win at Palace. Enough to already form a strong case for the Gameweek 36+ captaincy when Norwich come to Stamford Bridge…

But we should not overlook Pulisic who also enjoyed an impressive outing in south London, also unlucky not to get more attacking returns for his 9.9% ownership.

There was a suggestion that the American got a touch on Olivier Giroud‘s (£6.6m) first-half goal, although replays were inconclusive on that front.

After he finally netted the goal he’d been trying to score for several games in a row (running down the left-hand side and blasted high at the near-post), Pulisic might have got an assist for Willian had his late shot not been blocked by van Aanholt.

“Willian and Christian (Pulisic) have been excellent for us. I am really pleased with what they have done. I knew the talent that Christian has. It’s a physical lead and he has come in and been great for us. The quality for us and the end product is great.” – Frank Lampard

While Chelsea were impressive going forward, Fantasy managers should certainly be aware of the fact that Crystal Palace are fast becoming a much more porous side than many would expect.

They actually came into Gameweek 34+ having conceded more shots in the box than any other side in the previous four, which is why they have now let in at least three goals on three occasions since Gameweek 31+. 

Their defensive outlook is arguably even bleaker following a hamstring problem for Gary Cahill (£4.4m) which incapacitated him for Chelsea’s opener and could leave Palace depleted at the back for the coming schedule. That is certainly worth knowing for anyone with Manchester United and Wolves assets for Gameweeks 36+ and 37+ respectively.

However, for all Chelsea’s impressive play going forward, their own defence is becoming increasingly difficult to trust. At Selhurst Park, they were not always in complete control of the game allowing a side typically goal-shy on their own patch to look dangerous throughout and score twice.

“I wasn’t overly delighted with the midfield but I thought that Billy (Gilmour) did okay today. It doesn’t mean anything about his future. I know that he has more to give to us in the future.” – Frank Lampard

One of the usual culprits, Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.4m) was very much at fault for Crystal Palace’s opening goal as his poor season continues to underwhelm.

It was admittedly an incredible goal from distance scored by Wilfried Zaha (£6.6m) but the goalkeeper reacted too late and was unable to get a hand to the effort, even though it flew in the middle of the goal.

Then, for Palace’s second goal, van Aanholt was allowed to drive forward to the dead-ball line too easily by a static Andreas Christensen (£4.8m), allowing him to square for an unmarked Christian Benteke (£5.7m) to tap in. That was the Belgian’s first Premier League goal in 24 appearances at Selhurst Park, the last one coming all the way back in April 2018.

And, to be perfectly honest, Crystal Palace really should have scored a third in stoppage time, Chelsea very fortunate to leave Selhurst Park with three points.

In the 94th minute, Zaha played an excellent cross to the back-post from his wide-left station, which Scott Dann (£4.3m) headed back across goal. His effort, which appeared destined for the back of the net, struck the post and sailed away from the goal-line past Benteke and Max Meyer (£5.2m) before van Aanholt had an effort blocked.

And almost immediately after, Benteke found himself one-on-one with Kepa before Zouma flew out of nowhere to make a thumping last-ditch tackle.

Part of the issue for Chelsea’s defence has to be the lack of a settled back-four, Kurt Zouma (£4.7m) who, admittedly, had a better game than most in his department, making back-to-back starts for the first time in 2020 at Selhurst Park.

Such a questionable display at the back may not mean much for Fantasy managers with Sheffield United and Norwich up next for Chelsea, but it could bode well for Liverpool assets in Gameweek 37+, as well as Wolves options on the final day of the campaign.

“In the last few minutes, maybe (we lost control). We should have killed the game off. Some slight wrong decisions. Kepa makes a great save, Kurt (Zouma) a great tackle. He (Zouma) was excellent. His tackle was point saving at the end and I’m delighted with him.” – Frank Lampard

Crystal Palace XI (4-5-1): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Cahill (Sakho 8′), J Ward; Ayew (Townsend 80′), McArthur (McCarthy 80′), Kouyaté, Milivojević (Meyer 89′), Zaha; Benteke.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, R James; Gilmour (Gilmour 80′), Barkley (Loftus-Cheek 65′), Mount; Pulisic, Giroud (Abraham 65′), Willian.

    Anyone else considering FH for 36+?

    Chelsea have Norwich and City have Bournemouth!

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Depends how many players you currently own. With 4 players from those team already in place, not sure FH would make much difference.

    2. Homer21
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yep, my thoughts exactly

    3. Pegboy
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Think I'll have 5 players from those teams anyway. I'm probably going to TC then and FH 38

    4. LC1
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      I'll be free hitting that week post probably.

      Will already have 3 city. But means I can bring in 2x Chelsea Ings and potentially Richarlison etc.

      Looks to me the most profitable week to use my FH.

    5. pitstop1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Yep, came up with that idea yesterday. Chelsea & Ings.

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Patent pending? 😉

    6. Fit_to_drop
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Yes, saw this a few weeks back.As a chaser in my league it also suits me as it gives me 2 further weeks in which to do something additional having played my final chip (FH) so yet another reason to do it on 36 as opposed to 38.

        I had the same thought and prepared already for it, just to realize that a few days later City and Chelsea have their FA Cup semifinals. This could mean a high risk of rotation

        1. Pegboy
          • 9 Years
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          This is the problem. If it looks like the Chelsea/City players I own might be benched ahead of the semi's, I'll FH to bring in back-ups. Will be a bit of a gamble though.

          1. ElliotJHP
            • 8 Years
            27 days, 9 hours ago

            Defo a gamble. Might be worth sticking with KDB, see how the minutes pan out.

            KDB
            Foden
            D.Silva/Bernando punt?

      • ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Yep, was saying this yesterday.

        It also gives you a free spin of the Pep roulette. If it seems certain players will be rested ahead of semi-final, can change your three for a GW which is exciting.

      • circusmonkey

        27 days, 9 hours ago

        Saving it for 38. Not so near FA Cup games, possibility of early news, more 'new' players as possibilites, i.e. that I don't already own, so 3X Arsenal v Watford, 3X Everton v Bournemouth, maybe WHU v Villa. With those games, if the oppo are already down, lump on it. Burnley and Southampton have decent games and obviously 3 from Man City (which I have anyway).

        I could always do my weekly transfer to a Chelsea player for the Norwich game, just have one.

      • Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 9 hours ago

        I'm going 38. Will get Auba. Might have a rough idea of which city player start(always a big gamble I know ). Digne and richarlison great options too.

      • T.Henry14
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 8 hours ago

        I have only KDB and I will use my FH for gw36.

        3x Chelsea, 3x City, 1 or 2 from WHU..

        1. T.Henry14
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 8 hours ago

          but saving FT this week, and making some space for week after FH, and prepare for 37&38.

    7. seanmcging
      • 11 Years
      27 days, 9 hours ago

      Would it be crazy to do Douglas Luiz & Rashford to Pulisic & Greenwood for 2 FT's give I would potentially have to bench Greenwood?

      The rest is Bruno, Mahrez, KDB, Martial, Jesus & Jiminez.

      1. Vazza
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          Look like good moves

          1. seanmcging
            • 11 Years
            27 days, 9 hours ago

            Does it give me a benching nightmare?

            1. Vazza
                27 days, 9 hours ago

                Probably but just start benching Jimenez for some of the games

          2. Pegboy
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 9 hours ago

            Looks fine. Go Willian over Pulisic if you can afford to.

          3. TFP
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 9 hours ago

            no, why "crazy"? looks pretty template to me.

            1. seanmcging
              • 11 Years
              27 days, 9 hours ago

              Just the benching issue really, I'm kicking myself as I was torn between Grealish to Mahrez or Pulisic last GW, ended up going with Grealish & Auba to Mahrez & Jesus, maybe I'm just chasing now.

        • lugacun
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 9 hours ago

          anyone saw any news about this?

          is there a possibilty that they will check this and Vardy will be sent off for 3 games?

          https://twitter.com/VintageArsanal/status/1280623739256795137?s=09

          1. Pegboy
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 9 hours ago

            Seems very, very unlikely.

          2. Fit_to_drop
              27 days, 9 hours ago

              If thats the incident where Vardy catches the lad on the face falling down, then it was accidental. Was looked at afterwards

            Anyone considering FH in GW36?

            I only own KDB from Chelsea/City

            1. LC1
              • 5 Years

              • 8 Years
              27 days, 9 hours ago

              Yes, seems the best week for those without Chelsea for their tougher fixtures.

            3. Fit_to_drop
                27 days, 9 hours ago

                Yes Free Hitting that week definitely

            4. Vazza
                27 days, 9 hours ago

                Foden or Saka until the end of the season?

                  • 8 Years

                  foden

                2. SHOOTER MCGINN
                  • 5 Years
                  27 days, 9 hours ago

                  Benching Saka is bad enough. Having to bench Foden each week could be horrible. So Saka.

              • Pegboy
                • 9 Years
                27 days, 9 hours ago

                a) Nketiah > Greenwood
                b) Mane + Nketiah > Vardy (c) + Willian (-4)
                c) Something else

                Unfortunately 0.1 away from Rash + Nketiah > Vardy + Greenwood

                • 3 Years
                27 days, 9 hours ago

                Willian or Pulisic then?

                1. JammySprat
                  • 1 Year
                  27 days, 9 hours ago

                  Both

                2. Pegboy
                  • 9 Years
                  27 days, 9 hours ago

                  Willian (I'm a Pulisic owner).

                  They both looked equally busy last night, but the FKs and penalties tip it for Willian.

                  I'm considering the double-up.

                3. Fit_to_drop
                    27 days, 9 hours ago

                    Willian as Pulisic will make the penaltys that Willian will end up converting

                    I sold kdb for Willian 2 gwks ago then sold Salah for Pulisic last gw. Working a treat so far.

                  Has the FA mentioned anything regarding the Vardy kickout incident? Will it be reviewed?

                  After watching a few replays, his leg is unusually high and looks intentional to me

                    Nice spinning wheel-kick. Legal by the Shearer precedent.

                    Rubbish, weather conditions were shocking, you could see on his face it was an accident.

                    That looks deliberate to me.
                    You can see Vardy actually adding some power to the spin after he hit the ground.
                    Let's see...

                    No action will be taken I’d think, it would been an instant red if Mustafi done it to Vardy though

                      Laporte or someone else. Depends what you'd do with the saving. You've got a lot of cash tied up in your defence.

                    Come the end of the gameweek I will dump DCL for Vardy and look like this:

                    McCarthy
                    TAA Doherty Maguire
                    KDB Mahrez Bruno Martial Pulisic
                    Vardy (c) Jimenez

                    Krul Ings Aurier Fernandez

                    A) So, play Ings away to Man U or Jimenez home to Everton?

                    B) Also, Krul is home to West Ham when Mccarthy is at Old Trafford but can't bring myself to play Krul, is this right?

                      If you're not going to play a £8.3m striker at home against a mid-table team you should probably sell him.

                      I'd play Krul. You'll get save points out of McCarthy only.

                        I think you have no choice but to play Krul

                        Id play Jimi

                        Making the same move, will be weighing up Vards vs Bruno

                        A) Coin toss, see how they look this week. I'd be tempted by Ings tbh

                        B) Think it has to be Krul

                        Cheers all - have reluctantly put Krul in, will weigh up Jim vs Ings soon enough

                        Too strong bench, Downgrade Ings or Jimmy to Nhketia and upgrade somewhere else.

                      Fitness is so key for a PL team. I remember with our Conte team, in pre season for the first couple of weeks all we did was running, only used the ball after those two weeks. Then won the league
                      Van Dijk just said in an interview about how much running the squad do to keep fit

                      Being fully fit and having stamina is very underrated and something more teams should focus on

                      Gulp, season defining couple of days for me potentially coming up.

                      I'm on Bruno (c) all my my minileague rivals are on KDB.

                        Good luck, I had one on TC and the other on C Salah when I was going without. Nervous afternoon that.

                          I can imagine!

                          My main rival has TC and FH left like me. Going to be really interesting to see how it plays out.

                      Which one of these would you look to transfer in this week?

                      A) Pulisic/Willian
                      B) Vardy

                      Have Bruno, Martial, Rashford, KDB, Mahrez, Foden & Jimenez.
                      Mahrez or Jimenez probably will be sold.

                        Vardy

                          27 days, 8 hours ago

                          Hard to ignore Vardy plus he'll be more of a differential than Chelsea mids.

                          Could get one of the Chelsea mids against Norwich in 36.

                            I held Vardy all these weeks waiting for his return.
                            We all know the stats mean nothing with Vardy he sees he shoots & usually back of the net.

                      I guess Mahrez ➡ Pulisic / Willian is a way to go, especially if Mahrez starts today, right..?

                          I think holding Mahrez - for all games - is the only way to own him. He can get a 20 pointer in a game. Whereas the ceiling for Pulisic and Willian is lower, they will play every game. You choose.

                          Certainly an option I'm considering as well.

                            Cant get decent odds on him assisting (and can't find anywhere that pays out for 'fantasy assists') so just gonna have to risk it. Obv happens tho.

                            Kdb at home vs newcastle, Bruno away at saints Who held city off. It’s not to say Bruno won’t get anything, he could, but KDB has to be one of the most obvious captain picks this season imo.
                            Plus KDB had a bit of a rest

                          KDB has blanked in 8 of his last 10 Vs Toon. Bruno has never blanked vs Villa.

                            Then yesterday it had Richarlison as injured.
                            And half the time I click points it shows me last week.

                            I have 2FTs.

                            Goalie has 2 tough games, but it seems only Ederson has a good run and with his lack of save points I'm not sure if the transfer is worth it.

                            1. Martinez + Jimenez + DCL to Ederson + Vardy + Connolly leaves 1.3mITB .. But it's for a -4 and leaves Connolly / Lascelles first on the bench

                            2. Just do Jimenez to Vardy and save an FT

                                Thanks. Think you're right. Plus DCL maybe useful in GW37 when Pulisic has Liverpool. Guess I could spend on defence.

                            What to do? Get rid of Mahrez?

                              Maybe Mahrez to on of the Chelsea boys? Will or Puli. Salah also stands out.

                            What should I do about Vardy against Bournemouth?

                            a) Jimenez --> Vardy

                            b) Rashford --> Vardy and get Martial as third attacker

                            c) Ignore Vardy

                              ignore

                              A is my plan. Jiménez has been looking tired and Vardy has found his form after formation change. A is easy imo.

                              Depends on FTs, but probably a or c

                              A for me.

                            Im set up for my 4th consecutive captain fail. Switched back and forth between KDB and Bruno. Ended up with Bruno.

                            Az mentioned it on scoutcast and I know Mark is running with this, the more I think about it the more a like the idea of avoiding city and its rotation all together. Is it a viable strategy or just madness?

                                KDB has scored like 7 points per game since restart, other than him maybe!

                                  but so has Puli and Willian tbf

                                Viable. I currently own 3, and will ship Mahrez after tonight, who probably won't start.

                                  I own three but one is Ederson so not wasting a move on that spot. But my attackers may go soon

                                Mark got burned with City full backs very early in season, but it was a very strange plan from him imo...

                                GTG on a WC? If no injuries obviously.

                                  Vardy over Auba on WC.

                                  I would also bin off Aurier and Holgate (still injured?)
