Scout Notes

Hasenhuttl praises Ings’ fitness levels as Holgate succumbs to injury again

With yet another Gameweek deadline on the horizon, we summarise the key quotes, talking points and underlying numbers from two more Premier League games – Southampton v Brighton and Everton v Aston Villa – in the Scout Notes round-up below.

Ings on Target

Danny Ings (£7.5m) moved within three goals of Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) in the race for the Golden Boot after scoring Southampton’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion.

Amid the fixture pile-up, Ings looked as sharp as ever – even if Southampton struggled to get going in the opening 45 minutes.

An offside flag and Mathew Ryan‘s (£4.7m) left-hand post had initially denied him a 20th strike of the season, while he was inches away from teeing up Che Adams (£5.3m) for a tap-in in the second half with a volleyed ball across the six-yard box.

Ings’ goal eventually came in the 65th minute as he latched onto a Nathan Redmond (£6.2m) pass to finish coolly beyond Ryan.

While three games in a week would previously have been a concern for Ings, Hasenhuttl provided some encouraging words about his striker on Friday:

Calvert-Lewin Blanks Again

It’s eight straight blanks for Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.2m), seven of which have arrived after the restart.

There were a few more openings for the Everton forward on Thursday evening, with one turn-and-shot creeping narrowly wide and the striker almost deflecting a Tyrone Mings (£4.4m) clearing header past Pepe Reina (£4.2m), but it was another grim watch as Aston Villa carved out the better chances.

Calvert-Lewin sits a poor 24th among FPL forwards for expected goal involvement since the resumption last month, while only Norwich have carved out fewer big chances than Everton from Gameweek 30+ onwards.

With a trip to a defensively strong Sheffield United up next for the Toffees, the exodus looks set to continue.

Holgate Injured

Mason Holgate‘s (£4.3m) comeback from injury lasted all of 15 minutes before the budget FPL defender limped out of Everton’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Everton reported that the issue was a recurrence of a shin problem that had forced him off against Spurs a fortnight him ago and led to him missing out in Gameweeks 34+ and 35+.

Carlo Ancelotti didn’t mention Holgate in his post-match press conference but we may get an update on the centre-half in additional quotes released from that media gathering on Friday or Saturday.

Budget Defenders

Holgate’s early withdrawal and Yerry Mina‘s (£5.3m) thigh injury left Everton short of options at centre-half and, for the second successive match, Ancelotti was forced to turn to youngster Jarrad Branthwaite (£4.0m).

The teenager turned in a commendable display alongside Michael Keane (£5.2m) and, should Mina and Holgate be ruled out for the run-in, then Branthwaite could be a decent budget option for the Toffees’ remaining games against Sheffield United and Bournemouth – matches that are decent shouts for clean sheets, even if Everton have been short of them of late.

Indeed, Villa could easily have added to Ezri Konsa‘s (£4.3m) goal on Thursday, with Jack Grealish (£5.9m) dragging a couple of good chances wide and Anwar El Ghazi (£5.2m) somehow missing from three yards.

Ancelotti said of Branthwaite’s display:

I am really happy with him, he is really young, a kid. But he showed quality and personality and character.

He is really calm with the ball, really comfortable, and really aggressive without the ball. He can be a fantastic player for us.

Tariq Lamptey (£4.1m) was handed his fifth start in six games on Thursday, meanwhile, and he too has two favourable fixtures remaining from a clean sheet perspective.

Albion face Newcastle United in Gameweek 37+ and round off their season with a trip to Burnley.

Graham Potter’s constant tinkering with his starting XI remains off-putting, while Lamptey – who has otherwise been excellent since the restart – was caught on his heels for Ings’ equaliser and substituted not long afterwards.

Jake Vokins (£4.0m) started at left-back for Southampton but was perhaps a one-off inclusion (see below), while Ahmed Elmohamady (£4.1m) continued at right-back for Villa for the second straight game.

Relegation Scrap

Brighton all but ensured Premier League safety with their 1-1 draw against Southampton, with only a point needed to be mathematically certain – although chances are the Seagulls are already home and dry.

Villa’s concession of a late equaliser to Theo Walcott (£6.2m), however, leaves them right in the thick of it.

By the time their Gameweek 37+ clash with Arsenal comes around, and depending on Watford and West Ham’s results before that, it could well be win or bust for the Villans.

That would perhaps be of interest to owners of Arsenal’s assets, if Villa need to open up and go for the jugular to get three points.

Rotation

There were 11 changes to the two starting XIs at St Mary’s on Thursday, with Ralph Hasenhuttl making five of those alterations.

We’re used to seeing rotation at Brighton, with Graham Potter tinkering pretty much every week, but this was the first time Southampton’s starting XI had changed in four games and the resultant opening 45 minutes, coincidence or otherwise, produced a disjointed display from the hosts.

Adams, Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) and three of the Saints’ back four were all benched and few of their understudies really impressed in their place, with Hasenhuttl going on to make two changes at half-time.

The Southampton boss said:

It was a disaster in the first half and a very good second half.I think we made the right changes at half time and I think we could have scored five or six times in the second half but we didn’t deserve more because of how we started.

We were a little bit slow in our minds and there was a lack of automatism because of all the changes which is normal. We had to do it because it’s quite tough at the moment.

The hope for Ings owners will be that Saints are back to something near full strength on Sunday to aid him in his push for the Golden Boot, although there is again a turnaround of less than 72 hours between Southampton’s Gameweeks 36+ and 37+ fixtures.

Line-ups

Everton XI (4-4-2): Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Holgate (Branthwaite 15′), Digne; Iwobi (Walcott 61′), Gomes, Davies, Bernard (Gordon 61′); Richarlison (Kean 73′); Calvert-Lewin.

    Sterling obviously not going to start vs WAT if he starts tomorrow...

      Okay

    2. Bobby Digital

      Will we know facup lineups before fpl deadline?

      1. Scholes Out Forever

        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Nope, unless FA cup lineups leak 90 minutes early

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I mean... Obviously only Pep knows

      Sterling could easily start, get subbed off at 75, and play Watford. Im not even a Sterling owner. You just dont know, obviously

    4. Qaiss
      • 4 Years

      Why is that? He might not start against Norwich.. Stop guessing

    5. Zim0

      Not really

    6. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Fek knows. Somebody has to start

      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      why bother with bothering?

      feck(pep) knows

      maybe he starts 3 times in a week to gain rythm before cl and fa cup final, we don´t know nothing so no point in guessing and making premises that are speculations.

  2. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Which ONE week punt should I go for?

    A) Jimenez (CRY) : vs a depleted defense
    B) Wood (nor) : Scored 2 in the reverse fix
    C) Son (LEI) : Explosive, could be rested

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Wtf 😮
      Wood scored twice vs Norwich ??

      Legs shivering .... Shall i go for him instead of Tarkowski 😀

    2. Cheeto__Bandito

        b

      • Nas
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I’d probably still go for jimenez, though I have a wood bias. I’ve bought him 3 times in fpl and every time he’s blanked then gotten injured

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Super tempted to do this for GW37 BB:

      BB37: AWB + Lascelles + Pulisic --> Pieters + Egan + Martial (c) -8
      GW38: Pulisic --> Mahrez

      Bench is: Henderson - Dilva - Foden - Stephens.

      BB37 would solve benching headaches and BB38 has some bad fixtures as Southampton plays Sheffield.

      Too maverick?

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Anyone spare a thought please?

      2. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Whoops, Foden out instead of Pulisic in GW37

      3. Nas
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Good moves in isolation. Though martial is pretty heavily owned and will be heavily captained next week, most have a burnley defender and many have a Sheffield United defender so even if the moves work you may still end up with a red arrow since you’re starting from -8

        1. Scholes Out Forever
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Such a good comment regarding ownerships!

          Im currently ranked 8k, and looking at stats, only Tarkowski is owned by more than 1%, and I already have Pope too. Sheffield defence is definitely popular, but all defenders are around the 5% range, with Egan at 16%. I have Henderson so again doubling up with the BB would hopefully help.

          Martial is owned by 55% so really scared of not owning him. I have Rashford as well who's only 25% owned, and could captain him instead I guess but Martial (c) would be a shield for sure

          Thats my thought process so far, might be wasting BB from your point of thinking?

    4. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A) Greenwood to Wood
      B) Jesus -> Kane
      C) Martinez -> Pope
      D) Lascelles -> Tarkowski (for better bench cover)

      FH 38

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

        A

      2. Nas
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Why sell Martinez? Arsenal have decent fixtures. I’d lean toward A

    5. vincentwsho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Rank in order of priority this week:

      1) Ritchie (bha)
      2) Bardsley (nor)
      3) VVD (CHE)

      Already playing TAA and Pope

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

        321

      2. Nas
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        123

      3. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Bardsly already on 6 points so just a matter of is it going to be more. The other ones are good options but they can get cs while Burney is guaranteed cs

    6. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      What is more likely?

      A) Maguire goal vs West Ham
      B) Pieters assist vs Norwich

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        A

      2. Coys96

        B

      3. Nas

        B

      4. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        b by a country mile. Norwich are hapless in defending from both flanks ans especially for crosses. i would prefer Tarkowski but if budget is limited Pieters is good option as well. i think Mag will struggle with the cb at west ham, plus Antonio will pose him trouble (yellow cards). Pieters cs and no bonus and mag 1 conceded and a yellow is the more likely outcome

    7. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I have exact money to do DCL to Ings but for a 4 point hit. Worth it?

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        yep. Get out DCL now

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Why hit ?

        1. HollywoodXI
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Did Alonso to Tarkowski already

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Okay
            Bournemouth fighting for their lives.
            I can't see Ings getting a haul.
            A goal is most likely though. Your team bonding must be pulling you 😀

            1. Scholes Out Forever
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              It's Ings though - against a depleted defence. I think Bournemouth's MO has always been outscore the other team.

              1. Amey
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                That's what taken them down. They are better recently. Putting in shift at least. Maybe I'm very circumspect

    8. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Who scores more ??

      A. Ings Alonso
      B. Wood Alonso
      C. Pulisic Tarkowski

      One week only.

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        No backup for Alonso

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

        C - mostly cause Alonso may not start

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Exactly what I think too

      3. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 3 Years

        i´ll doubt that anyone outscore s Tarkowskijs 12 or 15 pointer, Puli can do whatever, if Alonso play chances are high he ends up with 0.

      What's all the talk about Wood? Any assurance he will even start?

      1. Amey

        He can and he will

      2. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Why would he not start? He is the team's first choice striker and Burnley never rotates players.

      Hi all

      Who do you think is more likely to start out of Dilva and Mahrez next GW? (Trying to plan my BB squad so really need sure starters)

      Admittedly. City and sure starters don't really go hand in hand...

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Mahrez

        Younger Fitter Got his rest out of the way this GW.

        1. Nas
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Mahrez benchings haven’t been about fitness. And if Silva rests in the cup then he can easily play.

      2. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Thanks Amey. I'm having such a bad season so i'm going for broke next GW and taking a -12 to shift 4 players (Giroud, Willian, DCL and Lascelles). Trying to decide on replacements - only decided on Ings so far!

      Rash Vardy Greenwood

      3.9 Fernandez Holgate Guendouzi

      1ft, 0.2itb

      I am chasing and to risk much more. Would you do this?

      GW37: Vardy + Puli to Ingsy + Dilva for -4

      GW38: Rash to Auba or maybe even Mo to Sterling. If I go completly mad I can do both for -4 in GW38 (depends on my ML situation and still have TC left to play).

      Tnx for any input.

      1. CONNERS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I would do your GW37 moves for certain. Mo to Sterling for TC against Norwich also very tempting.

        1. iL PiStOlErO

          Cheers mate.

      2. Apwilkin
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I like the Ings call, but Dilva would make me nervous for 37. I think he’s more of a lock to start 38. But who knows with pep.

          Liverpool have been more error prone at the back recently. Good opportunity for someone like Pulisic to capitalize on some sloppy play. Maybe just vardy to ings this week?

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Thinking about that also (thank you Pep) and then I can do some -4 last gw and TC city or Auba. Will think about it. Cheers.

        • Ephurion
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Maybe Antonio has another double brace in him GW 38 if you worry about Dilvas pitch time and roll that second transfer a GW

          1. iL PiStOlErO
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I actually believe that Dilva will play both for 90min and that he will sit in the FA cup. But I see people think he could be managed and nothing is certain with City. Will decide until the deadline.

          Aurier as you can afford better replacement. I have the first 2 and will let them rot on the bench

      6. Apwilkin
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Chasing leader by 10 pts.

          Pope
          TAA-Doherty-Egan
          Martial (C)-Pulisic-KDB-Salah
          Rash (VC)-Vardy-Greenwood

          Martin - Aurier-Holgate-Guendozi

          Anything worth a hit here? My gut is to hold this week. See how things shake out, and if need be go for a hit in 38 to risk it. But I really don’t like my lack of bench coverage now with aurier potentially on leave nad Holgate likely out again.

            Hold. difference is so small. TAA, Doherty, Egan will all play

                That’s what i was thinking

            Bench one GW 37+:

            A. TAA
            B. Digne
            C. Egan
            D. Doherty

            I’m leaning toward benching Digne.

            Thank you.

                  Play Basham (EVE) or Trent?

                  Think it may be Basham, but it's risky...

                    TAA and you shouldn’t have to ask

                        3 months, 4 days ago

                        He will get a clean sheet

                        Both if possible ?
                        I can't see pool CS & Everton are on beach.
                        Risky call but i prefer basham. Slightly though.

                          3 months, 4 days ago

                          There is no upside to Bashsm. Zero

                            I have no option but to play Taa & i hope you are right.

                            TAA could easily get another 0 points. Basham could easily get a clean sheet against Everton. I don't see ur logic.

                              I do have TAA though so I'm hoping he gets a goal or something

                          3 months, 4 days ago

                          Mane or Son.

                          1. Amey

                            I'd sell one of those tbh instead of KDB. Complete rest !
                            Arsenal can be done in 60 with all due respect

                          3 months, 4 days ago

                          Why risk him 2 days after Arsenal. I'm seriously considering selling him and Jesus for a hit.

                          1. DA Minnion
                            • 8 Years
                            3 months, 4 days ago

                            My thoughts exactly. What's the point in trying to second guess pep. They have nothing to play for.

                            1. Hot Toddy
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 4 days ago

                              Yep. Leicester in rag order at the minute so I like Son vs them.

                          2. Qaiss
                            • 4 Years
                            3 months, 4 days ago

                            Why risk him? Okay, why risk Sterling/Jesus/Mahrez by that logic then. He wants the assist record, maybe Pep doesn't care about that but he's just had a rest. If he will be rested, why won't the others above be rested? Jesus has started 6 games in a row, maybe it will be his turn this time. Who knows.

                            1. Hot Toddy
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 4 days ago

                              I know all of this hence considering selling two for a hit. Wakey wakey 😀

                              1. Qaiss
                                • 4 Years
                                3 months, 4 days ago

                                Yes but Pep needs to pick 11 players and I don't think KDB would wanna be benched 2 games in a row in the PL. But it's all luck with picking City assets anyway.

                                1. Hot Toddy
                                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                                  3 months, 4 days ago

                                  So why not go for it then with players we know will start.

                          3. Amey

                            No risk in playing players ?
                            He's got his rest this GW. Selling him for a hit after his rest is asking for trouble

                            1. Hot Toddy
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 4 days ago

                              Technically the Jesus tranager would be for a hit.

                                  selling city assets with watford and norwich, okay.

                                    No guarantee they play and I'll still have Mahrez, a powerful differential should he see minutes.

                      3 months, 4 days ago

                      You're all in deep trouble for convincing me to waste my FH this last GW... kidding, thoughts appreciated here though.

                      1FT and 0.7 itb, no chips left.

                      Hendo
                      TAA, Walker, Doc, Saiss, Taylor
                      Salah, KdB, Bruno, Martial, Pulisic
                      Vardy, Greenwood, Nketiah

                      Thoughts? I'm suddenly quite worried about my defence due to form, roulette, injury. I'm thinking bench Walker, Taylor, Nketiah and roll the FT to load up City for 38?

                      A) roll as above
                      B) Vardy to Jesus
                      C) Walker to Tark
                      D) Hendo to Pope

                        is probably the safest bet, depends if you need to catch-up lots of places in MLs or not.

                        Ings for me. Wood has bettter fixtures, but Ings' are not bad and he's been superb.

                      0.6m ITB. 1FT. Any ideas? Not sure what to do.

                        Decent team. Maybe Mahrez > Martial, think he's more nailed.

                      Need help to make a decision for next two games

                      A) Greenwood to Rashford (he is differential in mine ML)

                      B) Willian to Salah (Greenwood first on the bench )

                      Cheers
