Scout Notes

Jimenez returns to the scoresheet as Everton’s FPL assets continue to misfire

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 3-0 EVERTON

  • Goals: Raul Jimenez (£8.1m), Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m), Diogo Jota (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Daniel Podence (£4.9m), Pedro Neto (£5.0m), Ruben Neves (£5.2m)
  • Bonus Points: Ruben Neves x3, Jimenez x2, Dendoncker x1

Patient Raul Jimenez (£8.1m) owners finally had something to cheer on Sunday afternoon as the striker scored from the spot and banked eight points in Wolves’ 3-0 win over Everton.

Those still holding Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.3m), on the other hand, will have been less than impressed by another poor offensive showing from Carlo Ancelotti’s side.

The striker did register two shots on target – which accounted for the Toffees’ total on that metric – but Rui Patricio (£5.3m) did not have to break a sweat saving either effort.

Jimenez’s penalty was won by Daniel Podence (£4.9m) just before half-time, while Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) doubled Wolves’ lead immediately after the restart.

Diogo Jota (£6.0m), used from the bench, added a third for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side on 73 minutes while fellow substitute Adama Traoré (£5.6m) missed a gilt-edged opportunity late in the game.

Nuno Espirito Santo said of his side’s display:

You are in pain (after a defeat) but you stand up the next morning and you have to go again. That is the game.

We had a lot of actions today and didn’t concede too many chances, it’s always about trying to upgrade and raise the standards.

It was not our main objective (keeping in touch with the top four), there were things we should improve. It’s not about that, it’s about trying to create and raise standards so we become a better team.

Our finishes were not so good, look at the chances we had. Adama is not going to have an easier one.

Ancelotti, meanwhile, was fuming with his players after the final whistle:

It was really frustrating today. It was a really frustrating performance.  The team didn’t show a good spirit. We have to consider this more than the technical and tactical aspect. 

It was not good enough and the spirit of the team was unacceptable. We have to show, in the last three games, that we have a different attitude.

There are excuses but I don’t want to have excuses. The performance was not acceptable. I have already spoken to the players. We have to prepare the next game and have a very different attitude.

The Italian attempted to match Wolves by opting for a wing-back system in the opening half, with Lucas Digne (£5.8m) surprisingly operating as the left-sided centre-back behind wing-back Leighton Baines (£4.9m).

Romain Saiss (£4.7m) set Podence away almost immediately after kick-off, though the winger’s on-target effort was collected without issue by Jordan Pickford (£5.2m).

Theo Walcott (£6.2m) put Calvert-Lewin behind the Wolves defence a minute later in a very similar pattern of play, with the striker’s effort from an angle meaning a simple save for Patricio.

Matt Doherty (£6.2m) then had a sight of goal but slipped just before shooting, which produced a scuffed effort that went well wide.

On the quarter hour, Walcott sent an inviting cross into the Wolves area but neither Calvert-Lewin or Richarlison (£8.2m) were well enough positioned to connect.

Digne picked up a booking after 19 minutes for obstructing Pedro Neto (£5.0m) as the winger tried to race onto a Jimenez through ball.

The defender then made a crucial interception to help out Pickford as Podence almost found Neto in the Everton area.

After 25 minutes, Podence rode his luck to beat Michael Keane (£5.2m) before advancing into the box but his near-post effort was turned behind by Pickford for a corner.

Moments later, Jimenez produced some dazzling skill in the box before forcing Pickford into another save from an overhead kick.

An injury to Yerry Mina (£5.3m) saw Seamus Coleman (£5.3m) introduced after 30 minutes, with the Ireland international slotting in as a right-sided centre-back. Mason Holgate (£4.4m) missed out with a shin injury for the second consecutive gameweek.

Digne ‘s afternoon went from bad to worse just before half time as his foul on Podence inside the area saw Wolves awarded a spot-kick.

Jimenez made no mistake from 12 yards to hand Nuno’s side a 1-0 advantage going into the break.

Ancelotti abandoned the wing-back system at the interval, with 18-year-old central defender Jarrad Branthwaite (£4.0m) replacing Baines to allow for a 4-4-2 formation.

Wolves immediately took advantage from a 46th-minute free kick as Dendoncker got ahead of Branthwaite to steer a header past Pickford.

The Everton keeper almost put the ball into his own net after 60 minutes, letting a Podence effort slip between his legs but just about rescuing the situation before the ball fully crossed the line.

Pickford then managed to deny Jota – who was played through by Ruben Neves (£5.2m) – as the attacker bore down on goal, though the forward did his opponent a favour by getting his legs in a tangle before shooting tamely.

That save ended up at the feet of the on-rushing Jimenez, who could only win a corner with his attempted shot blocked by the backtracking Everton defence.

The Toffees did not heed that Wolves warning, however, as Jota fired home in the 76th minute after being once more set free by a brilliant Neves pass.

Calvert-Lewin managed to put a header on target from a Digne cross in the 76th minute but Patricio was once more equal to the Everton striker.

Traoré owners will have despaired at the attacker’s 86th-minute miss, as he managed to hit the top of the crossbar from six yards out after being found by Jota’s square ball on yet another Wolves break.

On Podence, who impressed from a roving attacking role, Nuno said post-match:

I think he played good. Daniel is a talented player. Today, he was able to help the team.

He arrived later, everybody knows, and he was getting his moments – getting ready. It’s all about that, trying to use the players in the right moments.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Saiss, Coady, Boly; Jonny, Neves, Dendoncker, Doherty; Podence (Traoré 71), Jimenez (Moutinho 77′), Neto (D Jota 55′).

Everton XI (3-5-2): Pickford; Baines (Branthwaite HT), Keane, Mina (Coleman 30′); Digne, Sigurdsson, Davies, Gordon (Bernard 55′), Walcott (Iwobi 55′); Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison (Kean 62′).

    Predictions on Salah starting next match

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Salah will start all the games imo unless Golden Boot seems impossible from GW37 onwards

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Yes - very likely

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Vs Arsenal? He will start.

    4. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      I would say almost certain to start- only 3 games to play as not in any other competition and a week’s rest between 36 + and 37+ . I fact I would say he will start

    5. wernerhedgehog
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      im surprised at the consensus here given how lots were saying he might be benched vs Burnley.

    6. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Will start, cant see a huge haul but maybe one goal.

  2. Bruce Lee
    • 1 Year
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Who would you rather get rid of, Mane or TAA?

    1. Nedvěd11
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      TAA

      But its hard using a FT for a defender at this stage imo

    2. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      In a vacuum TAA but midfield is where the points are, I don't see a defensive move worth making

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Mane

    4. Kudo Warrior
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      TAA

    5. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Mané of the 2.

      If it was Salah vs TAA I would have said TAA (if that makes sense)

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year

        Blind love !!
        😛

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          22 days, 6 hours ago

          Have you been watching him play recently and seen those stats?!

          The man’s ravenous

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            22 days, 6 hours ago

            Agree
            He is on a mission
            I'm scared of not having him. He pushed me out of 50k to 80k
            Bloody bugger 😛

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              22 days, 6 hours ago

              Haha!

              What’s your plan for this week man? I’m totally torn between about 5 options or just playing the FH now...

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                22 days, 6 hours ago

                I'm very very very confused bro.
                Saving FH For sure though.
                Already triple up on City United.
                Pulisic in team too.

                FH wilp only add to dilema 😀

                Currently looking at Mahrez Nketiah >> Foden Ings (-4) & bench Greenwood for Ingsy

                1. Don Kloppeone
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  22 days, 6 hours ago

                  I’m considering a ballsy:

                  Mahrez, KDB > Sterling, Dilva (-4)

                  Or

                  Vardy, Mahrez > Jesus, Dilva (-4)

                  I’m also planning to bench Greenwood (eek)

                  1. Amey
                    • 1 Year
                    22 days, 6 hours ago

                    Wtf
                    I am about to post same man
                    KDB Mahrez >> Raz Foden is in my mind.

                    Will bring Dilva on FH last GW

                    1. Don Kloppeone
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 3 Years
                      22 days, 6 hours ago

                      😆 kindred spirits!

                      Foden is also a shout. Just less exciting than Dilva and always feels wasted with millions sitting itb (altho don’t know why!)

                      Only thing I’m wondering is if keeping Vardy is worth it...

                      1. Amey
                        • 1 Year
                        22 days, 6 hours ago

                        I think Vardy will have fire in his belly now that City bribed FFP successfully to keep CL & extra millions in wages 😉

                  2. Amey
                    • 1 Year
                    22 days, 6 hours ago

                    Greenwood hat-trick confirmed !!

                    1. Don Kloppeone

                      • 3 Years
                      22 days, 6 hours ago

                      Totally!

    6. Rashleigh Runabouts
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      mane, better mid options now

  3. Nedvěd11
    • 4 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Start

    Doh | TAA | XX

    A) Holgate if fit
    B) Boly
    C) Fernandez

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      A

  4. Miguel Sanchez
    • 4 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Which score more this GW?

    A) Pulisic (NOR) and KDB (BOU)
    B) Sterling (BOU) (c) -4

    1. TheSteel
      • 7 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      A

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      A

    3. Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Think A

    4. DannyDrinkVodka
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      B

  5. The Man Pastore
    • 5 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    On FH, what would you change? Got 7.1M in the bank...

    Pope
    Azpi Digne AWB
    Sterling D.Silva Foden Bruno Pulisic
    Ings Giroud

    Martin Greenwood Lascelles Kiko

  6. Rt505
    • 2 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    A) Bardsley or B) Kevin Long for last 3 games?

    Not sure who is most nailed with injuries. Mee looks to be out for the season so I’m leaning towards Long. Could see Pieters taking a game from Bardsley if Gudmundson is back

    1. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      can u not afford charlie taylor

      1. Rt505
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 5 hours ago

        0.1 off

    2. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Long has some attacking threat from set pieces (scored for me on DGW 2 years ago - good memoris) and less yellow card risk. I went for Long over Taylor and Bardsley.

  7. GE
    • 3 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Vardy (C)

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Should be good for at least one goal

      1. GE
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        Yup 😉

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Brave

      Leic looking dodgy. And, there are some nice options from Chelsea & City especially

      1. GE
        • 3 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        Not brave IMO, they will bounce back and I have Sterling, KDB and Pulisic.

        1. Bobby_Baggio
          • 9 Years
          22 days, 6 hours ago

          I'd capt Pul over Vardy

      2. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        They are poor but he's finding the net. Should be a backlash after Bournemouth game and they get Rogers down from the stepladder he's on squeezing Soyuncu's neck 😉

  8. FALSE PROFIT
    • 6 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    What do you reckon?
    Salah and DCL to:
    a) Sterling and Ings
    b) Antonio and Auba
    Cheers in advance.

    1. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Can you go just Calvert Lewin to Ings?

      1. FALSE PROFIT
        • 6 Years

        Nope, otherwise I would

    I've got a bit of a benching headache....

    Despite the form of DCL (and Everton), I still want to find a spot for him in my team this week.

    Would you play DCL over:

    A) Son
    B) Greenwood

    C) Just bench DCL and be done with it!

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Bench DCL and never play him again

    2. PLerix

      c

    3. Nedvěd11

    4. DannyDrinkVodka
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      You know what.......I'm actually thinking about B myself (depending on how many minutes Greenwood plays tonight).....Villa will have to go for it and DCL will have loads of chances

  10. Kudo Warrior
    • 7 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    On the topic of "Plastic fans"

    You either support your local team OR you support a team you like the look of. No one is going to start supporting Hull City if they don't live in Hull...

    1. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Yeah and then the term supporter should be something like admirer, if you are not paying to watch them.

    2. ChelseaBlues223
      • 1 Year
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      It's funny that you mention Hull. I have a friend here in Serbia who supports them, don't ask me why though.

  11. Inazuma X1
    • 2 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Who to play?

    1. KDB
    2. Ings

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Think Ings as KDB maybe rested this GW or do a cameo off the bench.

    2. Christina.
      • 10 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      start both

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 2 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        Can't really with this attack

        Foden Bruno Salah Pulisic KDB
        Ings Greenwood Jesus

    3. Thomas M.
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Both. If KDB would play and score some big numbers you would never forget yourself

  12. Oooo Matron
    • 3 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Current team:
    Pope
    Doherty TAA Wan-Bissaka
    Mane Mahrez KDB Fernandes Foden
    Greenwood Vardy

    Subs: Jiminez, Aurier, Lascelles

    Or Free Hit?
    Patricio
    Wan-Bissaka Doherty Alonso
    Pulisic Sterling Fernandes Foden Mane

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Pope TAA Mahrez KDB or
      Pat Alonso Pulisic Sterling

      4 changes with a FH? Considering both are 50/50 keep the current side IMO

  13. TheSteel
    • 7 Years
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Is there a decent chance of Alonso starting?

    1. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Possibly but why guess, just wait for team news

      1. TheSteel
        • 7 Years

        Oh yeah? It will be available before deadline?

    3. dunas_dog

    Jimenez to Jesus really worth it?

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      I did it

      1. ChelseaBlues223
        • 1 Year
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        It's an okay move. But I won't have any more money for a second GK, whom I need for the upcoming BB. That's my only problem.

  16. FOO FIGHTER
    22 days, 6 hours ago

    Greenwood probably going to be in many teams from the start next season with a price around 5.5 to 6.0?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Think he will be up to 7.0 or 7.5 next year

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        Cannot see it being that much.

        1. Tempestic

          Really? A first team winger in the united attack? He might be reclassified as a midfielder as well considering hes on the wing

    2. Nedvěd11
      • 4 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Depends if they bring in Sancho

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        22 days, 6 hours ago

        They probably don't need to now. Get Koulibaly and Grealish.

    3. GreennRed
      • 8 Years

      8m? Kane was 4.5m when he started. Went to just 5m or 6m after 3 goals in a limited season. Greenwood looks more impressive than Kane was at that age. Question is can he maintain and improve his standard in bigger games.

    40 points gap from my ML rival, I still have WC and BB (lol). Who do you think are the essentials for these last 3 GW and who are the cheap bench fodders who could be good for a BB?

    How to get Jesus in?

    a) Rashford out

    b) Jimmy out

    c) Don't bother with Jesus, aim for City mids only

    1. Tempestic
      • 2 Years

    Do you think Man Utd will do DDG > Hendo next season?

    1. wernerhedgehog
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      nah, but Romero will be out of contract after 2021. Hendo in.

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 2 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Not the next one but 21-22 I guess

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      Henderson most likely will want to be number 1. Chances are he goes on loan back to SHU.

    4. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      22 days, 6 hours ago

      No, unless they find a club to pay DDG wages and The Spanish are not in love with DDG.
      Personally I would and work on Hendo distribution

    Real dilemma with City players likely to come off bench. In theory the 25 minutes or so minimum seems like a decent time for returns (fresh, tired legs of oppo etc etc). However at this point they are normally at least 2 in front and seem to drop down a gear with lots of keep-ball. If you have a sub on the time just seems to go very quickly for them. Plus the game gets messy as the opp also have a load of new guys on.
