Save potential and improved Villa defence boost Martínez’s FPL appeal

Aston Villa 1-0 Sheff Utd

  • Goals: Ezri Konsa (£4.5m)
  • Assists: Tyrone Mings (£5.0m)
  • Penalties saved: Emi Martínez (£4.5m)
  • Penalties missed: John Lundstram (£5.5m)
  • Red cards: John Egan (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Konsa x3, Martínez x2, Mings x1

Aston Villa’s defence picked up where they left on in Project Restart as they saw out a 1-0 win over Sheffield United in Gameweek 2.

Dean Smith’s men made major improvements at the back following the enforced suspension of the Premier League, ranking inside the division’s top six for big chances conceded, shots on target faced and expected goals conceded (xGC).

And all of that was on display against the Blades, as they registered a third successive home clean sheet in the league.

A key player in that shutout was new goalkeeper Emi Martínez (£4.5m), who already looks like a strong contender for the best option in his price bracket moving forward.

The former Arsenal man was on-hand to preserve the Villa clean sheet on Monday night as he produced an incredible save from John Lundstram‘s (£5.5m) penalty. Combined with the shut-out and a total of two bonus, Martínez registered a 13-point haul for Gameweek 2.

That said, for all Villa’s assuredness at the back on Monday night, there was, of course, one big mitigating factor: Sheffield United. Not only have the Blades really struggled to find any kind of goal threat in their first two games, but they also had to play 78 minutes of Gameweek 2 with 10 men.

A long ball over the top of Sheffield United’s high line pitted the rapid Ollie Watkins (£6.0m) against John Egan (£5.0m) in the 12th minute. The centre-back had no choice but to hold the striker back, earning a red card for denying a goal-scoring opportunity.

Chris Wilder was then forced to remove David McGoldrick (£5.5m) in the 31st minute, replacing him with Ethan Ampadu (£4.5m) and deploying a largely ineffective 4-4-1 formation.

While most teams would have found it relatively easy to keep a clean sheet in such circumstances, there is still plenty to like about Martínez moving forward. With Villa generally more assured of defensive returns at home anyway, the fact that Leeds, Southampton, Brighton and Newcastle are four of the next five to visit Villa Park bodes well.

And even though Smith’s men are set to face Liverpool (home), Leicester (away), Arsenal (away) and Wolves (away) between now and Gameweek 12, Martínez displayed enough save potential during Project Restart to convince any potential buyers of his credentials outside of the favourable fixtures. During that period, only the relegated Tim Krul made more saves than the Spaniard (28).

Martínez also looks like the better option when compared with Ezri Konsa (£4.5m) or Tyrone Mings (£5.0m), even though we have only seen Villa play once this season. The former scored the only goal of the game but it was his only touch in the penalty box all night, while Mings arguably remains too expensive to consider seriously.

Furthermore, one of the main things that Smith changed to improve his team’s defensive prospects at the end of last season was to rein in the marauding runs made by his full-backs so it remains to be seen what Matt Targett (£4.5m) and Matty Cash (£5.0m) can offer this season.

As was well-documented during Project Restart, the more conservative use of Villa’s full-backs continues to pose some restrictions on the team’s level of goal threat, so Fantasy managers may want to give Smith’s front-three a little more time before investing too heavily.

Naturally, Jack Grealish (£7.0m) remains the hub of the team, creating chances and using his position as a left-hand wide-forward to register a healthy number of shots on goal. Against Sheffield United, he was mostly restricted to lower quality opportunities, the sort we are used to seeing from Mohamed Salah (£12.1m). An 80th-minute effort summed up his evening perfectly. Grealish showed some nice feet to get into the left-hand corner of the box, flashing a powerful shot at goal and grazing the outside of the post. 

Then, Grealish got on the end of a counter-attacking cross from Trézéguet (£5.5m) in stoppage time, unleashing a fierce left-footed shot, only to see it blocked by Lundstram and a crowd of Sheffield United defenders.

The addition of Watkins may help in that respect. He added some much-needed pace to Villa’s front-line, which he used to good effect and might have capitalised on it, were it not for Egan’s 12th-minute foul. He went close again in the 77th minute, cutting inside on the left-hand side of the box and curling an effort just over the top-right corner of Aaron Ramsdale‘s (£5.0m) goal.

Meanwhile, the state of Sheffield United’s defence will be of encouragement to Fantasy managers with Leeds and Arsenal assets in the coming weeks.

The Blades have been on the back foot for large spells in each of their first two games of the season and must face an in-form Leeds attack without the lynch-pin of their back-three on Sunday afternoon, as Egan is suspended for one match. Promising youngster Ampadu is perhaps the most likely to replace the Republic of Ireland international.

Meanwhile, the next five Gameweeks pit Sheffield United against sides with important Fantasy defenders too, including Leeds, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City. Anyone invested in the backlines of those sides will have enjoyed what they have seen, or rather, haven’t seen, from Sheffield United so far this season.

After the first two Gameweeks, no club has registered fewer shots than Wilder’s men (13) and they are the only team yet to find the net in 2020/21.

There will be some Fantasy managers keeping an eye on Sheffield United’s attack though, as budget midfielder Oliver Burke (£4.5m) was deployed as a centre-forward on Monday night.

Unfortunately, Egan’s sending-off occurred too soon in the game for us to glean too much of what Burke can offer as an out-of-position option this season, perhaps something to look out for in subsequent matches.

Despite being left to plough a lone furrow in a 4-4-1 formation, the former West Bromwich Albion man did perform admirably in the rare moments when he was in possession. Burke showed off his pace on sparing counter-attacks and was denied an almost certain assist in the first half by a Targett foul.

He played an incredible through-pass from the edge of the box, which connected with the overlapping run of Chris Basham (£5.0m) inside Villa’s six-yard box. It looked to be a certain goal before Targett stuck out a leg and fouled the marauding defender.

With Oliver Norwood (£5.0m) and Billy Sharp (£6.0m) not in the starting line-up and McGoldrick already sacrificed for tactical reasons, Lundstram was the man to step up and take the penalty, having also assumed responsibility for corners. As already mentioned, it was not a bad effort at all, simply well-saved by Martínez. Whether the former budget defender gets another chance from the spot probably relies on personnel rather than the quality of his penalty. The chances of Norwood, Sharp and McGoldrick all being off the pitch the next time Sheffield United win a penalty seems rather unlikely.

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Martínez; Targett, Konsa, Mings, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz, Hourihane (Davis 62′); Grealish, Watkins, Trézéguet.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; O’Connell, Egan, Basham (McBurnie 68′); Stevens, Fleck (Osborn 63′), Berge, Lundstram, Baldock; McGoldrick (Ampadu 31′), Burke.

      There is a slight difference between League 1/2 and the Prem, the EFL is not requiring clubs to do tests due to the massive cost. Prem clubs are constantly testing.

      I'd be cautious with two 4m defenders who may lose their places in the coming weeks/month. Other than that looks good.

    3. Runaway
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Too unbalanced, benching headaches in front and no bench in the back. I would downgrade one of Mitro/Podence and invest that money in defence

  5. BinManJack
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    a) Foden / Jiminez
    b) Podence / Werner

    I could technically do Foden and Werner should Werner drop in price today / tomorrow. What are peoples thoughts?

      No.

      ASM and Davies are the immediate priorities.

      McCarthy then next in line.

      Monitor Werner for at least another week.

      You got any transfers?

      Auba -> KDB and it’s good to go for this week

      ASM -> 5.5-6.5 at some point

      It’s similar to mine but don’t think it needs wildcarding and I’m going to wait at least a couple of weeks for more info

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        1FT

  10. FPL_trail_runner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Here is why KDB will not be playing an advanced no 10 at the weekend - and very little this year I reckon.

    Wolves played 5 2 3 , pep matched the wolves 2 with rodri and fernandinho. This gave KDB no defence responsibilities and freedom in an attacking sense - super advanced no. 10. Its a one off. The majority of PL teams will play 3 in midfield. Leicester 100% will.

    Id expect KDB to have his normal right side 8 position versus Leicester, and perhaps Foden to drop to the left side 8 position with Mahrez or Torres on the right wing.

    Lets bookmark this and see this weekend.

    1. jk_footyfan
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      KDB finds a way to score or assist, no matter how deep he plays.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 1 day ago

        For sure, im as ever a big fan of his. Just i dont see him being a super advanced 10. If he is more longterm then next week getting him in for Sterling is an obvious move.

        I just dont see it yet so clear cut.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 1 day ago

      He played as a #10 against Arsenal, Liverpool, Madrid and they all used three man midfields. However, the last time he faced Leicester he employed two #8. You may be right, but the logic that he doesn't use KDB as a 10 against three man midfields is incorrect. Let's see whether Pep trusts Foden next to KDB...

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      If KDB played centre back I'd still have him

    4. Tinkermania
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      It's just theory. Doesn't reduce his points potential anyway. Though I expect a blank as happens with all players. They blank after hauls more often than not.

      1. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Agreed. I guess my main point was he will score very well but if he was in the number 10 super advanced role he would be essential and could get 300 points

        But people are making the decision over Sterling as if the latter is true.

        1. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 1 day ago

          For my reason about, I am going for Sterling. It's a bit like a coin toss between him and kdb just like Mane and Salah.

          1. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 1 day ago

    5. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 1 day ago

      I'm not convinced this will alter his returns, I'm going KDB out of fear rather than Raz

  11. JabbaWookiee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Think I'm starting to settle on this now. Any thoughts?

    Martinez - Nyland
    TAA - Saiss - R James - Justin - Taylor
    Salah - Son - KdB - Podence - Alzate
    Wood - DCL - Ings

    1. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Jimenez is a way better pick than Ings

      1. JabbaWookiee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        That old 0.1 out chestnut 🙁

  12. Here Comes The Son ★
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Martinez
    Digne, James, Castagne
    Podence, KDB, Sterling, Son, JRod
    Jimenez, Ings

    Steer, Lamptey, Mitchell, Brewster (0.1ITB)

    Quite happy with this WC... now tear it apart. Part of me wants to shave 0.5 off somewhere, so in future I have the option to upgrade Sterling to Salah or Digne to VVD. Not sure if that's overthinking or a good plan. I'd probably do Castagne > Saiss to find the 0.5. What do you think?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      If that's the team you want I'd go with it, I'm sure you can make the 0.5 appear.

      I personally think Salah is worth the extra 0.6 over Raz, might go into permacap Mo mode.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Can't justify Sterling over Salah because you're limited on captaincy options.

      Can sacrifice Ings for Richarlison or DCL.

      Also, no Wolves defense is foolish. Saiss is mandatory imo and then you should consider getting two.

      1. RamaJama

            Boly Saiss James Lamptey Mitchell
            Salah KdB Sterling Son Podence

            No Wolves attack is completely foolish.

                  Greenwood is definitely ballsy. But he didn't even start GW1 and with Van De Beek on to screw up team balance, I'm waiting.

            2. Here Comes The Son ★

              No Jimenez*

                I feel like you're getting heated up about it and I apologize for the strong language earlier.

                But I do sincerely think that Wolves defense is compulsory and to not do so would be making a mistake. Far more important than any one attacking player.

                It's nothing personal, it's just a team critique.

      3. Here Comes The Son ★
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Sterling & De Bruyne are fantastic captaincy options over the next 4. Salah's next 3 aren't great, I'd prefer Mane in the away games.

        Ings is proven, happy with him.

        Saying no Wolves defense is foolish is just childish. "Saiss is mandatory" has to be a troll?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Yeah but what about after the next 4 re. Salah?

          Wolves had the best defensive stats in the league last season post restart. Over the entire season with Boly in their team, they kept 12 clean sheets from the 15 games he played.

          Look at their next 7 fixtures: whu FUL lee NEW CRY lei SOU

          Wolves defense is statistically the best defense to invest in over the next few weeks. Saiss costs 5.0m, so does Coady for guaranteed starts.

          I'm just gonna lay the facts out, and if you disregard them, that's your choice.

          1. Here Comes The Son ★
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 1 day ago

            See my original post about Salah. I mentioned keeping 0.6 to upgrade Sterling to Salah?

            Fair point, their defense is solid. I've seen those fixtures too which is why I'd go as far as saying Jimenez is essential. He's got to be the most reliable source of points over the next 7.

              He is definitely a good pick. I want him. But competing for places in attack vs defense is a different prospect. Saiss is up against Castagne, Digne.

              Jimenez is up against Werner, Son and James Rodriguez.

                Out of interest, how come Ings isn't in the conversation for you? He scored 9 more goals than Richarlison last season in less minutes and he only costs 0.4 more.

                  Team form. Southampton are not good right now. He's also slightly more expensive. If I'm going for that price point, might as well get Jimenez.

                    Fair one.

    Sell Egan and play Davies just in case he starts?
    or
    Sell Davies and play Reed(4.5 fulham mid)

    Next gw gonna sell the other one so maybe price changes should be where should i look for it...

    1. moz_1983
      • 8 Years

      Personally I'd sell Egan, who's banned for one match and will drop in value either tonight or tomorrow. Possibly twice.

      1. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Yes but what if I change my mind and then keep him if a more necessary transfer occurs for the next gw? Then Davies will be useless

    2. JBG
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Sell him, don't think SHU will do as good as they did last season.

  14. TheDragon

    Davies - Spurs

    Will he start this week? Anything been said to indicate either way?

  15. cjscouser

    I've already used FT on Auba to KDB.

    I have Egan and ASM which are big problems atm what are people's thoughts?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Latest update from Bruce implied ASM is likely to play this weekend

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        Might have to keep but seems like he is dropping in price.

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 1 day ago

          Like all of my team - points over prices for me this season given there are so many options

    2. Big_Andy_GAWA
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      Is ASM confirmed out?

  16. liverpool01
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 1 day ago

    Mccarthy
    Taa. Lascelles, Siass, Taylor
    Salah, Kdb, Son(c), Asm
    Jimenez, Werner
    Button, Justin, Davis, Bissouma

    -4 Asm> Podence?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 1 day ago

      If ASM is ruled out I’ll be doing that for -4. If he is declared fit I don’t think it’s worth it (might do for free next week)

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 1 day ago

        yep

  17. ElliotJHP

    Really upset that James has claimed Jrod, hoping for a big season for Jay to make it a contest

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      JRod will always be the Burnley player

  18. FredrikH

    Bench Zaha, Podence, Bamford or DCL? Don't ask. Went with a strong Corona bench. Gonna be frustrating I know.

    1. Pukki Blinders

      Wow all with nice fixtures too... probably Bamford

    Just watched the highlights from Leeds v Fulham. Two soft pens and two poor defensive displays... Both will concede a lot.

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      Yup - target all the new boys this season

  25. Ronniie

    Werner, Jimenez, VVD (keep in mind already got Podence and saiss)

    Or

    Werner, Richarlison, Robbo

    Which would you go? Thoughts please

    1. AuFeld

        Just thought Richa looked good on the eye, selfish and always tries to shoot. Jimenez more consistent but lower ceiling.

  26. Shark Team

    Egan missed w games last seasonManutd where SHU conceded 3 goals each. And the only other time he wasn't on field it was when he was shown red card vs Newcastle away at 50mins and after that his team conceded 3 goals. The only other time except those 3 matches that SHU conceded more than two goals in last year's PL was vs SOU(A) in the last gw.
    Conclusion: Leeds to score 3 on Sunday...
