The key FPL lessons I learned from Gameweek 1 of the new season

What have I learned from Gameweek 1? It’s the same every year. Don’t panic after just one Gameweek. Remember why you chose those players. If you can save a transfer that’s ideal.

All words of wisdom we heard in pre-season, which is why less than 24 hours after Gameweek 1 ending I’ve considered no transfers, one transfer and even a hit! Fantasy Premier League is truly back.

In this article I want to see if there’s anything we can take away from Gameweek 1. It should be noted that making rash decisions based on one Gameweek is often a fools game, but we should always try and spot what we can, especially this early on.

Everton

How Spurs and Everton's new signings fared in their FPL Gameweek 1 debuts

Lots was made of Everton’s sub-par performances during Project Restart. Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.0m) didn’t score at all, and they looked as a whole, very poor as a team.

Fast-forward to signing a whole new midfield in Allan (£5.5m), Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.5m) and James Rodríguez (£7.5m), and it’s suddenly a whole different story.

The midfield three, which included Allan, Doucouré and André Gomes (£5.5m) looked like it had been playing together for years, and Rodríguez looked like that player that some people probably haven’t seen play since the World Cup in 2014. He constantly caused Ben Davies (£5.0m) issues even without pace on his side, and with five chances created against a strong enough Tottenham Hotspur side, we should be taking note.

It’s also worth noting that Everton’s game plan was to seemingly target the side of Matt Doherty (£6.0m), with Rodríguez often playing balls out to Richarlison. With West Brom, Crystal Palace and Brighton up next it may be something they continue to try, although Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m) might have something to say about that in the Brighton game.

Just to quickly touch on Lucas Digne (£6.0m) as well. It was interesting to see that Rodríguez didn’t monopolise set pieces, and Digne was still on lots of corners and free-kicks, which is ultimately where his assist came from. He only created one chance in the game, but with more freedom against teams that don’t have a marauding full back like Doherty, he could still be a great option, especially with the new look midfield giving the defence more protection.

Sheffield United

Chelsea

I’ve been pretty vocal in my excitement for Chelsea players this season but it might take a bit longer for their new signings to gel together like Everton’s did. Without some of their key players being fit, I’m looking at your Christian Pulisic (£8.5m) and Hakim Ziyech (£8.0m), it may be more sensible to hold off on loading up too soon.

They beat Brighton 3-1 but it wasn’t convincing. The xG for the game was Brighton 1.05 v 1.22 Chelsea..

Reece James (£5.0m) rewarded owners handsomely, but I’m not expecting him to score a 20 yard goal every week. And the third goal was helped through a significant deflection.

It might be harsh but I also thought Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.0m) was at fault for the goal they did concede, and it wouldn’t be the first time. I think I’ll continue avoiding Chelsea defenders until a replacement comes in (which may be soon), despite their relatively good underlying numbers last year.

In attack to say Kai Havertz (£8.5m) didn’t look good would probably be an understatement. He created just one chance and had zero shots. It’s too quick to write him off, he’s a young player, playing in a new team, in a new league, but for owners it may be concerning with Liverpool (home) up next. When Pulisic and Ziyech are finally fit we should see Havertz move more centrally, rather than playing out wide and that should broaden his points potential.

I don’t think Havertz is necessarily a rush to sell, but the timelines on certain injuries to other players in the squad would help me if I had to make that decision. After Liverpool it’s West Brom, Crystal Palace and Southampton up next, so there’s certainly some promise there.

For any promise Havertz didn’t show, Timo Werner (£9.5m)  defintiely did. He managed five shots in the box, and also won the penalty. His speed in the transition from defence to attack will be huge, and playing off the shoulder against Liverpool could see plenty of counter attacking opportunities. Just an assist is hard to swallow for his 46.5% owners, but a goal looks to be right around the corner.

Liverpool

value-players-2020-21

This probably isn’t news to some, but the Liverpool defence is still pretty good, despite heavy transfers out for the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m)

Leeds United may have impressed and scored three goals, but this came from an xG of just 0.32. On another day Leeds may not have scored at all.

What was most worrying to me was Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m) making another mistake and gifting Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) a goal. It’s easy to put those mistakes down to a league winning hangover, but we don’t have that excuse now and it’s something to monitor – hopefully just first game of the season rustiness. 

I don’t think we should have been expecting too many clean sheets from Leeds, Chelsea and Arsenal in the first three Gameweeks, players like Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) and Alexander-Arnold are long term holds after all, which is why the Leeds result doesn’t put me off when you look at the underlying numbers.

In attack, Mohammad Salah (£12.0m) owners can probably consider themselves a little lucky (I know I do), to have gotten two penalties in one game. Although it’s worth noting for a lot of people getting penalties for the same price as Sadio Mané (£12.0m) was key reason behind the pick.

From an “eye test” perspective Salah looked sharp, and any pre-season lack of form or sharpness was not to be seen. The same can’t be said of Mané who I thought looked poor at times with sloppy passing that broke down some attacks.

But when you look at the underlying numbers, both Salah (0.38) and Mané (0.27) had fairly similar npXG and it’s probably not worth panicking too much after just one Gameweek. Although for some people perhaps it’s just dawned on them that penalties can be very handy in FPL, and Salah is probably worth owning long term whilst they are the same price.

    Kdb vs sterling vs aguero för gw3?
    Aguero fit?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Looking at KdB Kun combo here for week 4

      That said Sterling is a great call for template team set ups.

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Kdb the safe pick, Sterling the differential.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Going with KDB in GW3. Monitoring Kun vs Kane post that. Have Kane in my team atm.

  2. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    If you are never gonna captain Bruno, is it better to get Martial instead ?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      That's my thinking

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Who are you going with then ?

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          May get neither 😀

          But Martial is currently scheduled week 3 for a longish run I think alongside Jim. Depends a bit on Vardy Kane both of whom I have. If both look good I may just do something else and entirely ignore United.

          See Martial as my preferred captain anyway even as a forward. Feels more likely to haul in the flat track scenario where captain comes into play.

          Basic strategy is to hold just KdB as long term super premium mid. That depends though on Pulisic getting fit and on form and Liverpool defence being good.

      2. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        I like Tony.

        However Werner, Ings, Jiminez, DCL, Wilson other options.

        I love Bruno.

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Already going with two other premiums in No and KDB, adding Bruno to those two would weaken the team imo

          1. gryffsonofarthur
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Nah.

          2. gryffsonofarthur
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Sounds like your mind is already made up.

            I do like martial as an option.

    2. gryffsonofarthur
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      1.5 is nice. But....pens. And

      BRUUNNNOOOOOOOOO!

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        I've got both, but the intention is to keep Bruno for the season and upside chase with Martial. Of course that can change depending on relative form.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      no

    Question from another member.

    Soucek or Charlie Taylor this Gameweek?

    1. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Just posted this a couple of mins ago 🙂

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        We have 1 of each

      2. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Now Soucek is winning

      3. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        It’s heavy in the favour of Soucek

    2. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Soucek

    3. Little Red Lacazette

      Soucek

    4. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Taylor cs and assist confirmed

  4. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Gtg? Plan is Auba -> KDB for GW3, then sort out Vinagre and anyone else after.

    McCarthy
    TAA Justin KWP
    Salah Auba(C) Bruno(V) ASM
    Werner Wilson Mitro

    Nyland Bissouma Mitchell Vinagre

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      If Auba braces in a 2-2 draw at Anfield will you still ship him?

      1. gryffsonofarthur
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Love Auba

      2. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        rewind...if he braces v WHU will you still ship him?

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I'd likely hold and have him differential week 3. What's your thinking?

      3. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        I think so. Had been my plan all along. But maybe could wait until GW4 after City have played Lei.

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          if he hits form after signing his new contract it would be hard to sell him even for KdB...but yeah I'm considering it also but its not as clear cut as many on here seem to make

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I'd planned all along to cap Auba GW2 then ship him for KDB. If he scores a brace I'll stick to the plan so long as Kev plays well.

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Toying with the hold here. It allows lots of other business to be done on a mini WC. Lost value of course in not getting KdB.

              Not seeing that week a necessary KdB week. Might even just get Kun instead week after

          2. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Thing is KDB is a player to have all season.

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Yes, my intention all along has been to have and hold KDB and Bruno all season (from GW3). Werner might put paid to that, as might Salah (whom I don't have) if he's on hot form.

  5. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Best move here?

    A. Havertz > Hamez
    B. Save & do a mini WC next week

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Coady Davies Justin Ayling
    Salah Auba Havertz Asm Reed
    Werner Ings Vassilev

    0 ITB

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      who is Hamez?

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        James Rodriguez

    2. CBonci
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I would hold the transfer. James looked good but I think Havertz could match or even better him in what will likely be an open game vs. Pool. That team is solid enough for GW2.

  6. El Fenomeno R9
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    On WC longer term

    A) Barnes + Harrison

    B) Hamez + Soucek

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      B

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      but who is Hamez?

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        James Rodríguez

        Trying to differentiate from Jay Rodriguez

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Alli dropping so yes

      -8? then use WC to fix Adams, ASM, Viagre, Steer etc

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You need to relax mate - that 11 has plenty of points in it. -8 at this stage is madness IMO, but keep your WC, Vinagre on your bench can wait til next week

    Tottenham's proposal to sign Gareth Bale involves Dele Alli joining Real Madrid on loan for the season and Madrid paying 100% of his wages, whilst Bale joins Spurs and they pay 50% of his wages.

      Two frauds lol, especially Bale who's more or less said that he doesn't like football and its just a job (that he does half arsed most of the time in recent years).

    1. Andy_Social

      Meh, all the problems are with fringe players. They'll be fine.

    I think with salah the plan to switch to Bruno was always something that seemed great in concept but with his sharpness and hunger showing through the actual practice was always going to be difficult! Bruno also has mixed fixtures from GW4!

    Conversely auba to kdb is a massive upgrade for a saving of .5 and one that benefits from a significant fixture change! No brainer imo

    The real test is actually how and who do double on - will it be Utd, city or Chelsea? City and Chelsea arguably have best short term fixtures but Chelsea will need to settle first.

    Then we have value in wolves and Everton - it’s going to be a fun few gws making decisions!

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      My plan has always been to have Kev, Bruno and Werner from GW3 and share the captaincy between them. Salah (whom I don't currently own) does complicate matters - if he's on hot form, I'm going to have to make a difficult decision.

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        I really want sterling and Kdb - but working that out is impossible without losing salah - To do that I’d want robbo and Taa as attacking cover. Mass changes to my team only a WC could provide.

        I think as with your plan it really is a case of a double premium midfield pivot and 1 or 2 premium attackers

        I actually think as time goes by the value will appear 7-9mil and so it’ll actually be beneficial only to have 2 players above that threshold

      Everton v WBA is tasty in GW2
      WBA v Chelsea is even tastier in GW3

      Martinez- announcement today

      1. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Will he start in GW tho? I'm trying to get Martinez + Steer but it will be a bummer if neither start. Also, does Heaton get the nod once he's back?

          Keepers are probably the position that leads the least training time to lead into their first game so even if he was announced on Monday I would still be confident in him starting.

          He will have been given assurances of being number 1 else he wouldn’t have signed. Think Heston will be back up once fit.

          Martinez Heston Steer Nyland is probably the order when all are fit.

            Heston is bloomin’ Heaton

      Running out to z cars and the siren on Saturday! :0)

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

      not JRod or Hamez it any other abomination 😉

      1. Siva Mohan
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        using JRod is not right .. give respect to old FPL legend 🙂

          People say this then use Dilva, Bilva, Tilva . No respect to save a few letters.

  15. The 12th Man

    Really want to take a chance on Podence but is he nailed to start?
    Or safer going with Klich who’s fixture aren’t as good.

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Who can say - Santos doesn't rotate much, but there's plenty competition in his position. Can't say for now whereas can be 100% re Klich.

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Since Wolves have City this week I may just go for Klich and look to switch to Podence if he starts the next two.

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Klich. More nailed.

  16. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Start one:

    A) Saiss (MCI)
    B) James (LIV)

    1. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      A as Man City had no or zero pre-season

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      A

    If it turns out that FPL have blocked price rises for teams who didn't play in GW1, will you risk doing your transfer (Auba to KDB, etc) on the Saturday after the deadline or wait until after Monday's game?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      I'll prob do it Saturday tbh

    2. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Yeah, I guess it's worth the risk if so. Almost certain to be a double price rise before the next game if price rises have been suspended as rumoured, especially if City play well.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      what makes you think they have blocked price rises ?

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Just the rumours doing the rounds, I expect it's rubbish but who knows.

  18. Siva Mohan

    Gareth Bale will be the 27th player Daniel Levy has signed to replace Gareth Bale

      Not sure why, but I have a sneaky feeling that this is a made to measure replacement.

    Is Hamez at Chelsea an real option ? and is Hamez at Utd a no go ?

  20. Warby84

    WC

    Leno
    Trent Digne Justin Saiss (Mitch)
    Salah Sterling Rodriguez Klich (Biss)
    Martial Werner (Brewster dep on move)

    Think I’ll ride out the Aubameyang move although slightly bricking it.. Think I want to go with a differential instead..

    Other idea was to downgrade Digne to Keane and upgrade Biss to Podence..

    1. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      would not wc so early, surely you;re initial team can't be that bad

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Hit the button in a drunken rage, not very patient I need to learn!!

        1. tibollom
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          aha i learned the hard way as well.. note to self: never touch fantasy when drinking!

          good team otherwise, as you say no auba could be dangerous but good diff

          1. Warby84
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I will C Salah but also if Salah doesn’t rise I could move him to Aubameyang and C and move back again..

      Wilson over Hot Rod.
      Save 1m

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        That would leave a 5.5 slot for Mdf.. Who would you go with Podence? I was tinkering with Wilson..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          not sure. I know you prob want Werner but he kills the budget. Personally think Jimenez @ 1m less will match him for most parts of(prob full season)

    Was planning to do Havertz to James with FT but this Reguilon news has spoiled it, now I have Davies as a headache.
    Should I save and maybe do Davies to Saiss next week instead? I also have to Auba to KDB with other FT..

    1. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      reguillon not done yet, davies will play

      • 5 Years

  23. Tashi Tshering
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Should we bring kdb in for gw2?
