Latest injury updates on Werner and Pulisic as James stars in Chelsea win

Brighton 1-3 Chelsea

  • Goals: Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) | Jorginho (£5.0m), Reece James (£5.0m), Kurt Zouma (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m) | Timo Werner (£9.5m), Jorginho, R James
  • Bonus Points: R James x3, Jorginho x2, Trossard x1

Nearly half of all Fantasy Premier League managers will hang on every word Frank Lampard says in his next press conference following a slight injury to Timo Werner (£9.5m) on Monday night.

The Chelsea forward, owned by 48% worldwide, sustained a dead leg in winning a penalty at the Amex Stadium. Even though he was able to finish the game, the knock reportedly restricted much of Werner’s movement during his Premier League debut.

However, that fact arguably holds encouragement for his owners, as the former RB Leipzig man was still Chelsea’s best attacking asset against Brighton despite those mitigating circumstances.

In a relatively unconvincing team performance, it was Werner’s pace and guile that asked the most questions of the Brighton defence. Even though Jorginho‘s (£5.0m) 22nd-minute pass was marginally overhit, Werner was still quick enough to chase it down and win the foul for the penalty.

It was this contact with Mathew Ryan (£4.5m) in the 23rd minute that restricted Werner for the rest of the match, but even carrying the knock, he still offered exciting penetrative runs. If he is fit and available for the Liverpool game, his owners may enjoy watching him operate against a defence with even more space behind it than Brighton offered.

“We saw (signs of how dangerous Werner can be). We know that. I love the way Timo pops up in different areas. He’s not a front-man who attaches to centre-backs so much. Sometimes he starts from a little bit deeper but when he goes, he goes. We saw that with the burst of pace (for the penalty).” – Frank Lampard

“Timo took a knock when he won the penalty so it’s more of a dead leg, we hope. I would like to think if it is a dead leg we have got a bit of time to get for him to get back (for the Liverpool game), and he obviously finished the game.” – Frank Lampard

“(The dead leg) was from the penalty. The knee of the goalkeeper hit me directly. It was hard and for the rest of the game, it hurts a lot. I (couldn’t) do some movements because of the muscle goes very hard. Of course, (I will be available for the Liverpool game). For games like this, you are always fit.” – Timo Werner

Injuries appear to already be the recurring theme for key Chelsea assets, as Christian Pulisic (£8.5m) missed out on the trip to Brighton, and currently boasts a yellow flag ahead of Gameweek 2. The American midfielder was originally in contention for Monday night, but Lampard revealed that he had suffered a setback in recovering from the fitness issues that troubled him at the end of Project Restart. Pulisic is, therefore, another player to listen out for in the next round of press conferences.

“Christian (Pulisic) was training with us last week but he had a little bit of discomfort a couple of days ago where he was trying to train with us and be in contention for today. He has had to just take a few steps back, so we’ll have to see.” – Frank Lampard

It was obvious that Chelsea missed the driving runs and shot-volume of Pulisic at the Amex Stadium and the absence of Hakim Ziyech (£8.0m) limited how much insightful creativity was on display.

As a result, there was criticism of Kai Havertz (£8.5m) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.0m) who were deployed on the right and middle of an attacking midfield trio behind Werner. The latter was especially poor in possession, too pensive on the ball and guilty of either taking too long to find a pass or simply lose the ball entirely.

Lampard has typically been a fan of 4-3-3 but, to some extent, his personnel shortages forced the switch to 4-2-3-1 on Monday, which struggled to offer much threat in the first hour or so. Perhaps when their key men are fit and available, things might be different.

“I don’t really want to pin us down to that one. We have the capabilities to play that way. We have maybe three or four players who would want to play number 10 for us but it won’t always be that simple. I want us to be adaptable and I think when you look at Kai, Reuben, Mason and Ross, we’ve got a lot of players. We’ve got Pulisic and Ziyech coming back. I have to work on that one. I want us to look fluid. It could be a 4-2-3-1 at times, and sometimes a 4-3-3. I want that movement within us. The players are still trying to work each other out a little bit. I thought today we weren’t as fluid as we could have been. We couldn’t find those passes between the lines. If we work on it, I want us to have a lot more movement up-front than we had today.” – Frank Lampard

It was this shoe-horning of Chelsea’s players into a slightly unfamiliar formation that stunted Havertz’s performance on Monday night.

The £8.5m man has already been sold by 45,000+ managers for Gameweek 2 off the back of a largely anonymous display, but some of his owners may be prepared to show slightly more patience.

It was clear that Havertz was not particularly comfortable on the right-hand side of midfield but it must also be remembered that he has only been training with Chelsea for roughly a week.

Furthermore, Havertz also produced some promising off-the-ball runs in the first half, the sort of thing that does not always get noticed by a cursive eye-test or in the statistics either.

In the opening exchanges, Werner found space down the right flank and squared a sweeping ball for Havertz, who was arriving in the six-yard box. The ball flashed past him by only a few inches, before the play was called back for offside, but seeing Havertz dash in like a centre-forward is certainly encouraging.

The former Bayer Leverkusen man made a similar run in the eighth minute before Mason Mount (£7.0m) tried to play him down the middle. The Englishman slightly overhit his pass, but had it been spot-on, Havertz would have been clean through in a one-on-one with Ryan.

Then after the goal, Werner found some space on the left-hand side this time and, while he was going up against Tariq Lamptey (£4.0m), Havertz made a promising untracked run into the box, which you can see below.

As you can see, the midfielder was ghosting into the box largely unmarked, almost like we used to see with Lampard during his playing days. Had Werner elected to cut his shot back, Havertz would have been free to fire a first-time effort on goal from a central position. Runs such as the ones discussed here could prove fruitful against a Liverpool backline playing a higher defensive line on Sunday afternoon.

“I liked (Havertz against Brighton). It’s not a game where you come away and go ‘here are 10 vintage moments’ but I thought there were moments of real quality and calmness. It’s a big ask, there’s a lot on his shoulders for the sum. The fact that he’s young, coming to a different league. He plays the game at such a pace, in terms of his quality. I thought we saw a few glimpses of that. We also saw him sprint back 80 yards to make a defensive interception having given the ball away so everything I’ve seen about him in terms of his character was spot on. His quality is going to come through.” – Frank Lampard

While Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.0m) continues to cause issues for Chelsea clean sheet potential, interest in their defenders is likely to increase in the coming days, especially once the Liverpool game is out of the way.

Reece James (£5.0m) put in an exceptional display going forward, netting a stunning goal from distance as he stepped into midfield from his right wing-back berth. His second-half corner helped the former Wigan loanee to an assist for Kurt Zouma‘s (£5.0m) deflected 66th-minute strike.

However, it will be interesting to see how often James will start at right-back for the remainder of the season. His start was partially influenced by an injury to Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) while Cesar Azpilicueta (£6.0m) was declared fit enough only for the bench. When both of those players are fully available and Chelsea get stuck into their European campaign, predicting which of their four full-backs will start each Premier League match may prove more difficult. Furthermore, when Ziyech is back on the team, he is likely to take corners away from James.

Meanwhile, even though it took some time for Brighton to get into the game, it was in the wider areas of defence that they had the most joy against Chelsea’s defence, which still has just one away clean sheet across the 2019/20 and 2020/21 campaigns.

After Steven Alzate (£4.5m) broke through the middle in the 34th minute and unleashed a powerful effort which Kepa batted away, Solly March (£5.0m) was completely unmarked in James’ zone, allowing him the time to line up a shot before it was blocked.

Immediately after half-time, the versatile left wing-back got all the way around the back of James, whipping a cross into the box that cannoned off Aaron Connolly (£5.5m) at the front post and into the side-netting.

Moments later Lamptey had the beating of Alonso, much as March had of James just before. The right wing-back, who continues to look promising as an FPL asset based on his advanced positioning, got into the box only to see his fierce shot blocked by Zouma.

“(Lamptey) was fun to watch. Such energy and enthusiasm for the game. He’s been like that since he came. He’s young and still has much to learn but his approach to football is refreshing.” – Graham Potter

However, Lamptey got a well-deserved assist in the 54th minute, when his pass to Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) found its way into the bottom corner, courtesy of a well-placed distance effort from the Belgian midfielder.

Four minutes later, Trossard’s cross from the right-hand side found an unmarked Lewis Dunk (£5.0m) at the back post. The centre-back made contact but managed to nod his effort wide when he really should have scored.

Generally speaking, Chelsea looked fragile to set-pieces once again at Brighton. That is perhaps no surprise, considering Norwich (12) were the only side to concede more goals from set-plays than Lampard’s men last season (10). Meanwhile, when Trossard’s goal went in, it meant Kepa had conceded nine of the last 13 shots on target Chelsea had faced. Combining those facts with how often Brighton’s wing-backs were able to carve out opportunities in wide areas on Monday night, bodes well for the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m), Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) in Gameweek 2 – as well as Mohamed Salah (£12.0m) and Sadio Mané (£12.0m).

Meanwhile, there are also some encouragements for those invested in Callum Wilson (£6.5m) and Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) for Gameweek 2, as Newcastle host Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The Seagulls lost two key men to injury on Monday, Adam Lallana (£6.5m) forced off inside the first half, before centre-back Ben White (£4.5m) sustained a knock in the second.

“I’m not sure (about the injuries) yet, to be honest. We’ll have to wait. Hopefully, they’re not too bad but it’s too early for me to give you anything.” – Graham Potter

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-5-2): Ryan; Webster, Dunk, White (Groß 79′); March, Alzate (Jahanbakhsh 79′), Bissouma, Lallana (Connolly 45′), Lamptey; Trossard, Maupay.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Kepa; Alonso, Zouma, Christensen, R James; Jorginho (Azpilicueta 85′), Kanté; Mount, Loftus-Cheek (Barkley 61′), Havertz (Hudson-Odoi 80′); Werner.

    Just played my WC and looking for some advice. Thinking of getting Ings over Wilson...any thoughts ?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Both great picks - Wilson looks great value at 6.5 but he did only play West Ham

    2. Bartowski
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      If I was wild carding I'd be getting in cheap strikers like Wilson or DCL and using the money in midfield.

    3. Ghost Ship
      • 10 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      I have Ings and am nervous about him. Kind of want more for my money when I think another .5 gets me martial and 1m is Werner. Although they haven’t done much so far either.

      Wilson - Adams - 1 premium forward
      Use money in Midfield

      1. Ghost Ship
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I wouldn’t have more than one forward at the 6-7 budget. If you do you are reliant on two finding form at the same time.

      Great input thanks !!

    Son to Bruno, before the price rise?

    1. Flynny

      Yes

    2. TheDragon

      If you must

    3. Little Red Lacazette

      I already did it.

    4. Slitherene
      • 2 Years

      Is it that easy a decision?

    5. aircraft1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 days, 12 hours ago

      Doubt Bruno will start this GW. Son looked the main creativity for Spurs and could haul. I am also considering it to avoid the price rise but its not an easy decision.

      1. Utopsis
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          Why wouldn't Bruno start?

      2. dansmusen

        Lots of great input
        Thanks

      Do we think Mou will just use Alli as his scapegoat and drop him completely? Claimed the sub was tactical on Sunday but I can't see how.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Unlikely

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Too farfetched, he got subbed off due to Allan shutting him down and marking him

        1. Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          What was the plan with Sissoko against that? Ta

        Hopefully, he shouldn't be anywhere near a PL side

      4. Ghost Ship
        • 10 Years
        8 days, 11 hours ago

        I think spurs may slowly implode this season. Mourinho is poison.

      Hi Lads
      I trust you are all well.
      Sorry to ask a question that I have no doubt has been asked before many times, forgive me in advance , but can a player increase in price if their team has yet to play i.e Utd/City assets?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        Unless price locked which we don't know, yes. Fernandes and KDB are very likely to rise today

        1. OleGGMU
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          Cheers mate to the reply and info , much appreciated, KDB in it is then

      2. Utopsis

          Such a polite young man/lady

      3. FOO FIGHTER

        8 days, 12 hours ago

        So Ings to Martial for-4.

        How many points does Martial need to score?

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          4 more than Ings

          Quick maths

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Without any data? Ings vs Spurs defence.

            1. Bazzah
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 days, 11 hours ago

              Ings stats were encouraging in GW 1.

              However, Saints had 73% possession against Palace.

              It will be a completely different game vs Spurs.

      4. Flynny

        8 days, 12 hours ago

        1mitb and prioritising martial....any views on Best bet here please?

        A....Havertz and antonio to martial and 7m mid (prob klich and keep the cash)

        B....bavies, havertz and antonio to ayling, jrod and martial - 8

        B looks extreme and I never take major hits. but it does get rid of some players I won't want and given fixtures could pay back this week!

        Mccarthy steer
        Taa davies shaw (vinagre ferguson)
        Salah auba havertz asm (biss)
        Werner antonio Adams

        Would appreciate views Thanks!

        1. Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          TAA to Gabriel and Antonio to Martial

          1. tm370
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            I dont agree with losing TAA for Gabriel. Arsenal's fixtures turn after West Ham and TAA will surely be the game's highest scoring defender.

            I think A. At 7, I like Barnes or even Maddison

            1. Bartowski
              • 10 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              Can always get him back in when they wildcard. Got to take your chances and I bet those transfers will pay off in the short term.

              1. tm370
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                8 days, 11 hours ago

                True but a CB with uneven fixtures doesnt have great upside. Hits are worth it for high scoring players and captain options imo - this removes one of the best scorers in the game.

            2. Flynny
              • 5 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              Barnes in ways a rotation risk. Maddison coming back from injury.

              Not losing TAA.....

        2. lilmessipran
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          Probably just Antonio to DCL, or Vinagre to Keane/Saiss with your team

      5. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        8 days, 12 hours ago

        (Bottomed) Best option? Want a hit to remove Antonio and bring in a united asset... but how?

        A) Salah + Antonio -> Bruno + Jimi
        B) Havertz + Antonio -> 7.0 mid + Martial

        1. aircraft1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 11 hours ago

          B

      6. Hiroku
          8 days, 12 hours ago

          So, James Rodriguez has 229 goals+assists in 389 games throughout his career. That makes it one attacking return every 1.7 games.

          Add to that the fact that he plays well under Ancelotti, that Everton look revitalised and have better fixtures than arguably anyone else and suddenly he looks a steal at 7.5M

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Exactly why I have him, puts up world class numbers whenever he's fit, whether it's Monaco, Colombia or Madrid

          2. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Looked more like an assist the assister type of guy on sunday

            I want to see more shots and getting into box before i get hin

          3. Bartowski
            • 10 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Might get him in but I see these stats constantly being repeated and no one seems to be taking into account Madrid and Bayern and even Monaco in a rubbish French league are going to create more chances.

          4. TheDragon
            • 2 Years

            He is a trap

            Great player

            Not a great FPL asset

            Hope he proves me wrong though given his price

              James has been a consistently destructive player - he scores and assists, he isnt a deep lying playmaker.

              There is a good argument that playing for top teams and getting sub apperances boosts his stats . But he will central to our play and that often benefits a player too. Over the next few fixtures he looks golden and well worth his price.

          Imo, a good way of looking at transfers this week is to ask if you were sure of your picks before GW1.

          I am looking at Son or/and Mitro out because I was uncertain on both (was very close to Havertz and Lewin). But if you had a player you were certain of- perhaps Ings, then I would advocate patience or at least avoiding a hit.

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Was certain on Havertz... but seeing his performance yesterday is another thing

              • 6 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              I can agree with this - he was awful

            Can’t say I was sure of much before a ball was kicked this season. Now I’m sure of 50 percent of my team and still waiting on rest.

          Do people think Martial will outscore Kane over the season?

            No, but Martial will be better value.

            Depends how many pens Spurs get. Martial easily the better pick from openplay.

            • 6 Years

            I think it will be Kane favored because of pens. Don't see the point in making that transfer

          Any possibility of Wilson taking over penalties from Ritchie?

          1. Hairy Potter
            • 5 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            We rarely get pens, but Ritchie may spend a lot of the time on the bench this season. I can see Wilson stepping to take them.

          Jiménez is a better option than Martial after this GW

          1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 5 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            I reckon so

            • 1 Year

            Value in Wolves attack at 5.5 with Podence though

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              Yes but rotation risk

            He always was the better option imo. He’s a talisman who is a pure striker capable of scoring with both feet and very dangerous in the air,all the wolves attacks go through him and he has penalties and no europe this season.martial is a great player but can’t say the same about him

            Not me, but I’m loving it!! But not sure on;

            Sterling or DeBruyne
            Laporte or Digne

            Any thoughts?

        • Naby K8a
          • 4 Years

          Reguillon would be a top signing for Spurs. Ben Davies is nothing special as we all know.

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            He should join United tho?

        • Chandler Bing

          Who is Lamptey competing with at Brighton? His offensive stats are ridiculous.

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Veltman new signing

          2. Traction Engine Foot
            • 2 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            I think their new signing Veltman plays in the same position but not sure?

          3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
            • 5 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            That Ventman I think, but Lamptey was their best player and should be pretty nailed for now.

          4. Naby K8a
            • 4 Years
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            He provides great delivery with no one to stick it in the net. BHA Not exactly water tight defensively either

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            I don’t think anyone can take his place if he continues like that.I think he is nailed for now

        • ace3.1415
            8 days, 12 hours ago

            Ings > Richarlison a good transfer?

            1. Ghost Ship

                Yes I wanted to as well but with Bruno and KdB without even kicking a ball yet is ridiculous and making me question if this is best as could lose out

            Looked at the Son's stats, terrible - what makes you think that Spurs will play better away to Soton?

            1. Traction Engine Foot
              • 2 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              They couldn't play any worse. Son was the only one who looked like he had a bit of life in him.

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              Son will continue to have poor stats as long as he plays on the left. Only good in Kane’s spot. Terrible value at 9.0

            3. Bazzah
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              I was checking the data too.

              Currently playing predominately on the wing and firing lots of crosses.

              Ideally want him playing more central or nearer to Kane. I'm selling this GW.

              it’s not about son actually it’s
              the way spurs play. They are struggling to create chances, they are not the team scoring for fun they once were under poch.

            Next 3 - 4 GWs, which striker would you rather have?

            A) Jimenez
            B) Martial
            C) DCL
            D) Ings

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year

              B

            2. TheDragon
              • 2 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              B>D>A>C

              All good options though

              1. Bazzah
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                8 days, 12 hours ago

                I'm thinking Tony too.

                Everton really impressed me though so torn between DCL & Tony.

                DCL didn't have many final 3rd touches though. Not to surprising against a Mourinho team.

              • 2 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              He looked so off the pace I'm not even sure he'll play the next game. I'm sure he'll come good eventually but it looks like it will take a while.

            3. #23
              • 7 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              1. He played deep
              2. I got him in hope he had pens
              3. Have Werner already
              4. Chelsea need time to gel/fitness

              • 8 Years

            6. Flynny
              • 5 Years
              8 days, 12 hours ago

              Cos he looked lightweight and off the pace.

              Clearly a fantastic player but looks like he may need some time to adjust.

              May not even start v lpool

              Need to raise cash for martial...
