What Bournemouth’s shock win over Leicester means for Fantasy managers

Bournemouth 4-1 Leicester City

  • Goals: Junior Stanislas (£5.8m), Dominic Solanke (£5.1m) x2, Jonny Evans (£5.3m) own-goal | Jamie Vardy (£9.8m)
  • Assists: Callum Wilson (£7.4m), Diego Rico (£4.2m), Stanislas| None
  • Bonus: Solanke x3, Stanislas x2, Vardy x1

Where to start with – and how to make sense of – this one?

A bewildering evening on the south coast saw Leicester City implode spectacularly in a manner that conjured up memories of Brazil’s 7-1 thumping at the hands of Germany six years ago.

From Dominic Solanke (£5.1m) finding the net to the Foxes’ two centre-backs scoring a combined minus five Fantasy Premier League points, it was a scarcely believable watch.

The first 45 minutes went by pretty much as expected, with Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) opening the scoring in a typically opportunistic manner, Brendan Rodgers’ side utterly dominating proceedings, and Bournemouth looking fragile in both defence and confidence.

Leicester went into half-time having racked up 10 shots to the Cherries’ one, with Vardy responsible for five of them.

Only some last-ditch blocks kept the score down, with Nathan Ake (£4.8m) getting a vital touch onto a 36th-minute strike from the Foxes’ forward to deflect one effort up and over.

Based on the first-half evidence, and with Ake limping off injured, many of us would have expected a Vardy haul to materialise and no doubt began looking at options for a Manchester City triple-up in Gameweek 36+.

Eddie Howe switched things around at the interval, making two changes and moving to a wing-back system to match Leicester’s formation, but the first 20 minutes of the second half passed by without much incident.

The Cherries were better, with only poor touches from Solanke and Callum Wilson (£7.4m) ruining promising moves, but had still only registered two efforts on goal before the game turned on its head in the 65th minute.

A suicidal kick out from Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) led to Wilson being fouled in the Bournemouth box, with substitute Junior Stanislas (£5.8m) stepping up in the injured Josh King‘s (£6.1m) absence to level the scores from the spot.

Things unravelled from that point for the visitors, with Caglar Soyuncu (£5.0m) seeing red for a kick on Wilson immediately after Solanke had squeezed a shot under Schmeichel.

Jonny Evans (£5.3m) then deflected a Stanislas shot past his own goalkeeper before Solanke rounded off the scoring when pouncing on a dreadful Christian Fuchs (£4.2m) pass.

Substitute Sam Surridge (£4.3m) went on to waste two glorious opportunities in injury time as Leicester’s defence went AWOL.

How to process this result as Fantasy managers?

Firstly, Bournemouth’s admirable second-half fightback isn’t likely to put us off going big on Pep Guardiola’s side in Gameweek 36+, with the Cherries looking brittle at the back.

As plucky as the south coast side were, this was a freakish set of circumstances and Manchester City would unquestionably have swatted aside Howe’s troops had they provided the opposition in the opening 45 minutes.

Bournemouth look likely to be without their best centre-half on Wednesday, too, with Howe saying of Ake:

It doesn’t look too good. With such a short time left of the season, it looks like it’s going to be difficult for him to play.

But what of Leicester?

It’d be easy to chalk this game down as an anomaly from their point of view, too, and it’s unlikely that circumstances will again conspire against them in the way they did on Sunday.

However, the Foxes have taken only 14 points from their last 14 games and they are in serious danger of losing out on a Champions League qualification place that looked all but secured at the turn of 2020.

Soyuncu will now miss the remainder of the season, while the Foxes – who still have doubts over James Maddison (£7.3m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) – ahead of Gameweek 36+ – also lost Marc Albrighton (£5.1m) to injury in the first half.

Luckily, Vardy keeps on scoring regardless.

This was his fourth goal in three games and he himself looks back to his best even if the Foxes continue to be hit and miss, with the support from Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) and Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) in attack working well over the last week.

All three of those players could have added to the Foxes’ lead in the first half and it made Rodgers’ decision to withdraw the Nigerian at half-time, sending on Dennis Praet (£5.2m) in his stead, look particularly odd.

The Leicester boss said of that change:

[Iheanacho] wasn’t having one of his better games. The issue for us defensively was on the side of the pitch, because there was a lot of space for Wilf [Ndidi] and Youri [Tielemans] to cover.

So we pushed Ayo [Perez] on, he was playing well, and added an extra midfielder in to help cover.

But the defeat wasn’t tactical, it was about the spirit.

Turning his ire on his players and Soyuncu, Rodgers added:

I didn’t see it coming. We didn’t have personality in the second half. I would say an apology to the supporters, that was unacceptable for a Leicester City team, the reaction to the red card. We lacked the spirit and attitude.

It’s disappointing because we’re already without three of our key players. We don’t have a big enough squad.

It’s a stupid reaction [from Soyuncu]. His covering position could have been better. It was reckless.

Saying that, we have to defend better. We didn’t show the right spirit when we went down to 10 men.

While Vardy’s own form isn’t in question, that of his team is and the Foxes have three tricky-looking games remaining, starting with a match against a Sheffield United side who look back to their best defensively.

The Golden Boot may be enough to keep his existing owners interested but there’ll be fewer FPL managers looking at him anew, while the rest of the Foxes’ squad will likely be given short shrift altogether.

      Potentially, but CPL been brutal, so have Brighton I suppose. I'd like 2 United attackers still. Martial/Bruno/Foden/Sterling/Pulisic midfield perhaps? Jesus/Ings up top?

      1. Eriksen Maestro

        I am going pulisic salah d silva foden sterling with giroud up top either ings rashford

      I would go with Bruno with your lead. I wish I had like your lead. But just cant nail captains so far after restart. I will go with Bruno again

    4. I Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I'm playing it safe with 3. Palace have been poor and think Bruno will bounce back after a subpar performance tonight.

  4. thes7s

    Are we ignoring the fact that KDB is chasing Henry's assist record? Pep always looks after his players in that aspect.

    1. Berbs
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      He'll get it in 20 mins vs Norwich

    2. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      He plays Norwich last day and Watford before that he’ll have opportunities

    3. I Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      He's a definite keep for me. Could easily start and get 60 mins or do damage in 30 mins off the bench. Can understand FHers not picking him though.

    4. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      he plays norwich at home

    5. jamiejoe
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I think Pep is rather more focused on winning the FA Cup and Champions League for the cup treble for the club.

      Not interested in minor stats.

  5. HD7

    FH36:

    Ederson
    Digne - Alonso(Azpi)

        Not sure if Ings does well at home mate

    2. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Azpilicueta over Alonso too

      1. Joyce1998
        • 4 Years

      Who are you putting the armband on?

  6. TeddiPonza

      1. TeddiPonza
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        No, but it’s either Sterling or Puli :/

    2. n14mul

      • 3 Years

      I was/am tempted but salah stats are good and arsenal may have an eye in the fa cup...he always seems to do well va arsenal

  7. kysersosa

    Anybody watching the game tonight - no concern over Ings? no knocks etc?

    1. Eriksen Maestro
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Nah all good

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      does he start the next 2?

      1. kysersosa
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        He'll be involved thats for sure.

  8. Viper
    • 10 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Jimenez -> Jesus worth a -4?

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Hmm probably not

    2. Pépé Pig
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I'd risk it tbh

  9. MattysFantasyFooty
    • 7 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Do we think Alonso will start against Norwich?

    1. Eriksen Maestro
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I hope yes

    2. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Nope

    3. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      We’re bad enough at the back as it is, don’t think bringing him back in will make us better defensively.

    4. Blue&White85
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Yes, I hope and think so. Looking at him as a bit of a punt but hoping for team news before I pull the trigger.

    5. MattysFantasyFooty

  10. Meccano
    • 5 Years

    Bottomed on last page...

    Little help...?

    Currently have Sterling, KDB and no Chelsea.

    1. KDB and Jimenez toPulisic and Jesus (-4) - but would need to hit again to get KDB back for last two
    2. TAA and Jimenez to 6.1 DEF and Jesus (-4) - keep KDB and watch Pulisic / Willian from behind the sofa!

    (4 points behind ML leader who has Pulisic, Willian and KDB)

    Thanks!

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years

      Wouldn’t do either of those

    Team 1

    ederson
    azp, digne, awb

      Im on 1 currently if it helps

    3. GoshenSoccer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      So because all other players are the same in both teams, it is basically a comparison between Willian/Jesus and DSilva/Vardy......very difficult, I think I go Willian/Jesus, because Willian is on free kicks/PK's, but very close.

    4. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      So Jesus + Willian or Vardy & D. Silva? Probably the first two for me

  12. El Lobito 10
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Captain:
    A. Dilva
    B. Pulisic

    Leaning toward Dilva as second last home game ever and got 10 points in reverse fixture

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Tough one. Pulisic is sure to start, but I am waiting for his inevitable injury. Man City is such a roulette that I would hate to have my captain start out on the bench. But most likely, Silva starts. I would probably go with Pulisic because they are playing Norwich.

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

    Bottomed again, first to 5 would be amazing, to finally put this to bed:

    1. Connolly >> Ings [bench Mahrez] (push the button before price rise)

    2. Mahrez >> Willian / Pulisic (wait for team news) [get Ings next week]

    TAA - Dohery - Aurier - Lascelles - Stephens
    Salah - KDB - Bruno - Foden (C) - Soucek

      Don’t think so. KdB could play and Martial starting to look good

    5. caldracula

      No chance

      Thanks. Just scared not owning any Chelsea players for the Norwich game!

      I wouldn't do that

    8. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Losing Martial as part of a hit is a bad move

  22. MaRooney 5

    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Would Rashford take the next PK?
    Man U can't afford more mistakes

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years

      Bruno then

    2. MattysFantasyFooty

      Honestly who knows, won’t know until it happens to be frank

    3. acidicleo

      If they get a pen while leading 2 nil probably..

    4. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Why would he take it over Bruno?

    Mane > Sterling?

    1. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Sterling could be benched..

    2. Pépé Pig
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I did

  24. acidicleo
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Guys help to pick one..

    A) Willian
    B) Pulisic

    A has more double digit hauls but has played more minutes.. B only played 60 mins this GW.. Confused..

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      coin toss

    2. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Puli

    3. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Willian

  25. Albrightondknight

    1. I presume Aurier is out this week.
    2. Any news on Holgate?

    1. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I'd say Aurier doesnt play
      Holgate i read he is likely to return

      1. Albrightondknight
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        Thanks right now I got Holgate starting in the back 3 with Aurier benched.

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 4 Years
          28 days, 7 hours ago

          you could start Aurier, if he doesnt start it will be because he is on compassionate leave

    Norwich to surprise everyone with a good performance tomorrow?

    1. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Really can’t see it at all they’re woeful

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      it would definitely be a surprise

    3. Isco Disco
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      There's more chances of BOU putting in a good performance against City and surprising everyone that Norwich

  27. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Pope
    TAA AWB Saiss
    Salah KDB Fernandes Mahrez Foden
    Greenwood Vardy

    Henderson Lascelles Connolly Lundstram

    1FT, 3.2 itb

    1. Connolly >> Ings [bench Mahrez] (push the button before price rise)

    2. Mahrez >> Willian / Pulisic (wait for team news) [get Ings next week]

    Cheers all

      2 again.....

    2. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      1 looks better I am leaving all my 3 City players. At least with this option if KDB gets no minutes you get Mahrez minutes off the bench or something similar.Yes Pulisic could haul but he doesn’t have too many double digit scores. Personally I am holding FT this week and will get Ings then. My bench headaches are bad enough as it is.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        thanks mate, good rationale

        1. was always my planned move anyway so should perhaps just stick with it

  28. osceola31909

    Why do a lot of people think KDB will be rested against Bournemouth but Sterling will start? KDB played 60 minutes against Brighton while Sterling played 90. Not arguing about it, just trying to find out the reasoning so I can make some decisions.

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      people are just guessing, nobody knows. Minutes in games don't make a difference. KDB has been taken off early before and not started the next. He has also played 90 then played the next game midweek.

    2. mr messi
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      I’m curious also. Why does everyone think Mahrez won’t start and Sterling will?

    3. MaRooney 5
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      KDB more likely to start, IMO

  29. mr messi
    • 10 Years
    28 days, 7 hours ago

    Sterling Jimi or
    Mahrez Jesus?

    1. JJeyy

    Thoughts on this FH team:

    DDG
    TAA, Digne, Azpi
    KDB, Bruno, Willian, Pulisic, Dilva
    Jesus, Ings?

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      28 days, 7 hours ago

      Everton have been terrible, so I am not sure about Digne, even against Aston Villa. Otherwise, it looks very good.

      1. MaRooney 5
        • 7 Years
        28 days, 7 hours ago

        who instead?

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 3 Years
          28 days, 7 hours ago

          Keep Digne.

          They will keep a clean sheet against Villa.

          Didn't do well today, but maybe AWB.
