What to do with Jiménez after third successive FPL blank at Sheff Utd

Sheff Utd 1-0 Wolves

  • Goals: John Egan (£4.5m)
  • Assists: Oliver Norwood (£4.7m)
  • Bonus Points: Egan x3, Chris Basham x2 (£4.6m), Dean Henderson (£5.2m)

So soon after Wolves were declared a side to triple-up on, they have now lost two matches in a row and scored in neither of them.

It is no secret that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been playing progressively less incisive football with each passing week and it is having an adverse effect on Fantasy favourite Raúl Jiménez (£8.3m).

Even as he was nodding his 15th league goal of the season past Aaron Ramsdale (£4.5m) in the Gameweek 31+ win over Bournemouth, the Mexican was in the middle of a laboured performance which yielded just one effort on goal.

Since then, Jiménez has now blanked for three matches in a row, hardly encouraging ahead of a Gameweek 35+ meeting with an Everton side that has two clean sheets in their last four.

With each passing Gameweek, the mid-priced forward has looked ever more peripheral and hit a new low at Bramall Lane on Wednesday evening.

Against Aston Villa and Arsenal he was guilty of drifting too far wide but at Sheffield United, his positioning was far too deep. As a result, across the 90 minutes, he did not register a single attempt on goal.

There was only one moment in the first half when Jiménez looked like having a shot, as he collecting an Adama Traoré (£5.7m) cross with his chest, only for Chris Basham (£4.6m) to clear.

Sheffield United were certainly in better defensive shape in this one, with Jack O’Connell (£4.5m) finally back in the starting line-up but, as already mentioned, this lack of clinical edge for the Wolves attack has been going on for several games now.

On Wednesday evening, Jiménez dropping deeper did allow for Traoré and Diogo Jota (£6.1m), selected either side of him at the front of a 3-4-3 formation, to make some exciting runs, although it was rare for them to find anyone else in the box when they got there.

“We’ve created chances but it’s very difficult to play against Sheffield. It requires different things from us, a little bit more deep. We had a lot of situations where we unbalanced Sheffield, we had good movements and good chances that we should be more clinical from, but our counter-attacks must be better.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

One man who might feel frustrated not to have been involved more often against Sheffield United was Matt Doherty (£6.4m).

With Jota and Traoré full of running at the very least, there were several occasions when the wing-back was free in a dangerous position either in or around the box, arms outstretched but was ignored.

Knowing that he is still getting into the right areas might be of some encouragement to Doherty’s 12.7% ownership as Nuno goes about trying to find some solutions to Wolves’ recent issues.

It is certainly worth holding onto the wing-back, or any of his defensive colleagues, for Gameweek 35+, especially as it is Everton who come to Molineux.

Not only have the Toffees been largely toothless in attack away from home since the return of the Premier League, Wolves did not look particularly likely to concede at Sheffield United on Wednesday.

They had managed to hold out for 92-and-a-half minutes before John Egan (£4.5m) nodded home a gut-wrenching winner as virtually the last kick of the game.

Up until that point, Rui Patrício (£5.2m) had been largely untroubled. Before limping off, Oli McBurnie (£5.5m) nodded his first-half header straight at the visiting goalkeeper before Billy Sharp (£5.4m) was clearly offside as he netted in the 53rd minute.

George Baldock (£5.0m) headed a Richairo Zivkovic (£4.7m) cross around the post with 15 minutes to go before Lys Mousset (£4.4m) went on a run blasted an effort high and wide.

The first time that owners of Wolves defensive assets really had hearts in their mouths was in stoppage time when a game of pinball took place in the penalty area, leading to Ben Osborn‘s (£4.7m) deflected shot. 

With just seconds left, the resulting corner seemed a routine one for Wolves to clear and claim an eighth clean sheet from a possible 10, but Egan rose high enough to secure his second goal in as many Premier League outings.

Galling for backers of the Wolves defence, especially the double-uppers, but at least encouraging enough to warrant going with a similar set-up for the visit of Everton next time out.

It’s Chelsea up next for Sheffield United, who have scored at least twice in each of their Project Restart fixtures. That may be enough to put off investment in the Blades’ defence, but their display on Wednesday might prove a sufficient dampener on interest in Christian Pulisic (£7.2m) and Willian (£7.3m).

As already mentioned, the return of O’Connell brought an instant calm of the Sheffield United backline as if he had never been away, the overlapping centre-back at the heart of much of their approach play too.

Sander Berge (£4.7m) and Osborn are also forming a decent partnership in central midfield, offering decent protection for the three-man defence even with John Lundstram (£4.6m) and John Fleck (£4.7m) out of the team, although the former was fit enough for the bench tonight.

As a result, Henderson was largely untroubled in net, other than Ruben Neves‘ (£5.2m) free-kick striking the bar.

Sheffield United XI: D Henderson; O’Connell, Egan, Basham; Stevens, Osborn, Norwood, Berge, Baldock; McBurnie (Mousset 49′), Sharp (Zivkovic 71′).

Wolves XI: Patrício; Saiss, Coady, Boly; Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Doherty; D Jota, Jiménez, Traoré (Dendoncker 79′).

    Lot of Salah starting or not debate. What about TAA?

    If you have a shocking bench like me it is a bigger issue as there must be a good chance he has the entire night off.

    1. teneighty
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      With Lascelles and Holgate on my bench I also worry about TAA getting a rest.

      However, I plan on keeping TAA and I'm all out of free transfers so I'll just have to roll the dice.

    2. Sterling Archer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I don't think he sits out for the full 90 anyways, so he will come on for a 1 pointer or maybe get an assist like robbo last night

    3. SH
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I am worried too. My whole defence is poo at the moment - Martinez, Doherty, Soy, Taylor, Lascellas

      1. Jon Walter's Hatty
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        yep Lascelles news is massive. Could swap for Robbo and use the money for a Jimmy/Vardy upgrade.

        1. SH
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          I would just get VVD then, Robbo/TAA might see more rotation till the end.

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        you are a bit harsh on yourself there. Martinez at 4.2 has been a bargain, he was a tip toe touch away from another 9 pointer and delivered 3 cs in 4 games.Spurs away is not the worst fixture imo, Arsenal looking far better than Spurs at the moment. Doherty is playable, Soy got a decent match vs Bou and i presume the last one not mentioned is TAA who you don´t know for sure will be benched. Lascelles if playing, is not the worst option away to Watford. I think Bruce deliberately saved his best players yesterday. If lascelles ankle is sore you would not want him to play in a game vs City where you need to constantly move sideways, backwards and twisting your body or Jesus stepping on your toes.

        1. SH
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Some valid points! Thanks for taking your time to make me feel better! I am actually frustrated not having another playing GK, stopping me from playing BB. Maybe I will take a hit next week.

          1. bench boost for every gamew…
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            apart from Liverpool Martinez have a good run in. Play bb whenever Martinez has a good game and get another goalie with a decent game that week you need him for. In 37 you have a bundle of good alternatives if you can get to 5.2-3, Ryan, Pope, Pat, Pick etc. Brighton home is their last game home, i know without crowds but usually that kind of games end 1-0 or 2-0.

    Triple City with Sterling, KDB and Jesus too much ?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No it's fine IMO

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No.
      Think I’m going that way.
      Salah > Sterling this week.
      Vardy > Jesus next.

  3. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    KdB + Kane -> Sterling + Vardy (-4)

    TC -> Sterling/Vardy
    Y or N?

  4. ElliotJHP
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Come on Dominic, big shift tonight to give me a (slight) transfer headache

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      He’ll haul , I moved him out this week.

  5. SH
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    The emerge of Greenwood has been a blessing for FPL. Auba to Greenwood turned out to be a good move so far; also allowing me to do Barnes>Mahrez, Sarr>Martial and now Jiminez>Vardy in three consecutive weeks. Might start with him next season if he is priced below 7m.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not if they buy Sancho you won't.

      1. SH
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        True! I would buy Sancho then lol

  6. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Who here is sticking with Jimi and starting V Everton?

    really want my 2FT for gw 36 and after taking a hit last week think that's what I'll be doing

    1. EL tridente
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Will keep him for one more week and then transfer him out for Ings

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Deciding between Jim (EVE) and Ings (man)

    3. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Think I am resigned to keeping him now unless DCL forces himself back into plans (ha)

      He could easily do well vs Everton

  7. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Well... Let's pick up the pieces.

    Any suggested moves? I'm thinking to hold even though this week so far has been a disaster.

    Pope Martinez
    TAA Digne Aurier Taylor Lamptey
    Mane KdB Foden Fernandes Martial
    Rashford Kane Nketiah

    Bench next week is: Pope (LIV), Taylor (LIV), Lamptey (MCI), Nketiah lol.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Kane to Vardy or save.

      You think Foden starts?

      1. ElliotJHP
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Ditching Kane before the NLD?

        I'm watching Kane tonight to weigh him up.

    2. FPL_WILDCARD
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Feel your pain mate, also a Mané over Salah owner and yesterday all but ended my chances in my ML!

      Here’s hoping Mane starts and has a blunder against Burnley while Salah is on the bench...

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yep. I was 4 points behind 2 weeks ago. Now I'm 49 behind. Devastating. Rival had Salah, Jesus, Mahrez vs my Foden and Mane.

    3. SH
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not tempted by Vardy?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Not really, no.

        I want two FTs for next week to get Ings probably.

        1. SH
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Hold then. Rashford>Ings, Nketiah>Greenwood would be beautiful.

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Don't want Greenwood. Would probably do Mane + Nketiah out. But let's see.

            1. SH
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Yes, Mane to Chelsea mid could be better. Cheers and GL!

    4. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Hold and play Pope.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Interesting. I think Arsenal look pretty good defensively and it would soften a Kane blank to have Martinez. Pope also scored 0 vs City so hmm...

  8. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Best defensive options for FH this GW?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Not a great week for defensive FH aye.

      I like James Justin

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        What about Kasper?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Robertson

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Was thinking this. Or VVD. Surely TAA is benched?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Think TAA could be benched this one. Burnley low block and 8 players behind the ball will make life difficult for Liverpool so they may need to use the full backs to whip crosses in to the box hence why I would go with Robertson. Plus Tark and Mee (if avaialble) are pretty decent at defending headers so that would reduce VVD's goal threat.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Wouldn't FH this week. 36, 37 or 38 are better.

    4. Karan14

    30pt lead over rival and 3 differential players each

    Me: Salah,Pulisic,Greenwood
    Him: Martial,Rashford,Jiminez

    A) Save FT
    B) Salah>Sterling

  10. Slitherene

    Robbo, VvD, PvA

    McCarthy
    TAA Doherty Aurier
    Bruno Martial KDB Mahrez Foden
    Rashford Jimenez
    (3.9 Cathcart Holgate Nkietah)

    Mahrez & Jimenez to Sterling & Vardy for a hit?

    Will cap either Sterling or Vardy this week.

  12. Mingo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    From the restart I've captained Aguero (double), Bruno, Jimenez, Salah & De Bruyne, collecting a total of:

    4 assists
    3 clean sheets
    1 bonus

    A total of 26 points from 5 captains (6 if you count the double GW), 5.2 or 4.3 ppg.

    Is anyone else shooting themselves in the foot every week without fail. Bruno has scored 9, 3, 15, 15. I managed to captain him for the 3. At the moment I'm leaning towards him for my GW35 captain.

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      My captain too pal, locked in barring anything tonight.

      1. Mingo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Normally it would be a Salah no-brainer, but the risk of rotation puts me off. Ole isn't rotating the team at the moment and they are all clicking, even if Southampton score I fancy us to put 2 or 3 past them.

  13. G Banger

    Bit of a repost, but no responses :'(

    (a) AWB + Jimenez + DCL => 5.1 DEF + Vardy + Greenwood (-4)

            Also possible, I'll add that option to my connundrum!

    2. Von Lipwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. G Banger
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I took a few at the start of the season, but not in a long time, so willing to take one more before the end. I'll see how the game goes tonight"

  14. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Tempted by an aggressive -4 of:

    Salah, Mahrez, Jimenez to Pulisic, Sterling, Vardy

    What do you think?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Exciting moves!!
      I wouldn't put you off them.

      I'm thinking Mahrez & Jimenez to Sterling & Vardy for -4.

    2. Fishy

      Yep

  15. Hybrid.power
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Still absolutely gutted that Wolves conceded. I was watching the game and it became so clear it was going to end 0-0. My missus came in as it was almost over and even she said "no one is going to score here". Then....boom....instead of 12 points with a chance of bonus, I ended up with 4 points. This game is cruel too often!

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Yes, I think there should be gradual points for clean sheet, like you get to keep X points if defender doesn’t concede a goal for Y amount of time

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Of course Egan should haul as he got the winner clean sheet etc.

        But it does seem cruel on defenders especially who concede late on after virtually keeping a clean sheet for 90 minutes

        1. Hybrid.power
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Nah, I understand the punishment. The defenders and goalkeepers messed up. Instead of getting 1 point in the league, they walk away with nothing. It's just hard to stomach sometimes!

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Ok but even if say Wolves were 2-0 up and conceded that Egan goal in the last minute, they still get 3 points but in fpl terms you get nothing for their defense

    2. FPLord
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Bloody Egan, twice in a row my first bench player, still think that I would play Saiss over him again, but still I lost out on 23p.

    Who would you rather own this week?

    a) Mane

    b) Sterling

    Just cautious that my rival in 2nd place owns Mane but he is 50 points behind!

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Mane. He's currently my captain. It's either gonna make up huge ground for me or sink me. But I'm on the ship one way or another.

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years

      Raheem, despite yesterday I think it'll be tight between Liverpool & Burnley.

      Fancy City to blow Brighton apart.

    RP:

    Which one would you choose?

    A. Son + Jota/Jim to Pulisic/Willian + Vardy for (-4)

    Vardy to Auba for the final 2 games of the season. But the other worry is will Pulisic start against Norwich with the FA cup semis and him having played 90 mins in the last 4-5 games.

    OR

    B. Son to Sterling for free (have exact cash). Sterling rested so probably should start the next 2? Just hope. Would suck if he doesn't against BOU though.

    Jim to Ings next gw. Stuck with Ings and DCL though upfront.

    Cheers.

      Kept Vardy for his blanks

      Removed him before his brace 😀

      Since removing him he has scored 22 points

        Yeah similar to me! Think I took him out before Everton so at least one blank since, so annoying isn’t it

        Downgrading Doherty. Wolves defence still the best option? Thoughts on digne?

    as a few other others very tempted by losing Salah this week. not many weeks left and want to be aggressive now to secure my ML.
    Sterling and Vardy look good for this week and worried for Mahrez and Salah benchings.

    Honest thoughts on Salah Jimi and Mahrez to Sterling Willian/Puli and Vardy for a -4? Will captain Sterling or Vardy.

    What to do with Jimenez? 3.8 ItB

    I am looking to replace him with one of the following

    A)Aubameyang
    B) Jesus
    C) Vardy

    I think most people without FH are looking at their teams for 35+ and expect benchings ... but hoping that means starts in 36+. Getting a City starter in 36+ will be an advantage, but like Sterling proved last night not a massive one.

    The 5 sub rule is largely making sure your attacking player gets near 30 mins min at the end of the game. The impact of a benching is way less in this environment.
