Abraham leads Chelsea line as Jorginho drops to bench for West Brom trip

Tammy Abraham (£7.3m) has been tasked with leading the Chelsea line for their Gameweek 3 trip to West Bromwich Albion.

After impressing midweek, the former Swansea City loanee makes his first Premier League start of the season in what looks to be a 4-2-3-1 formation named by Frank Lampard.

That suggests a slightly wider role for Timo Werner (£9.5m), who is capable of operating as a left-winger, while Kai Havertz (£8.4m) gets his first chance to play number 10 in a league match since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen.

Meanwhile, Abraham coming into the team has forced Jorginho (£5.1m) to the bench, which should make for interesting viewing if Chelsea win any penalties this afternoon, as the Italian has taken two since the start of the season.

In defence, Reece James (£5.1m) continues to silence the naysayers worried about rotation, as he starts ahead of Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) for the third match in a row.

His Fantasy credentials are boosted by a Premier League debut for Thiago Silva (£5.5m), although Willy Caballero (£4.9m) makes one last start in goal as Edouard Mendy‘s (£5.0m) came too soon for involvement in Gameweek 3.

Matheus Pereira (£6.0m) remains the only asset of slight Fantasy worth in the West Bromwich Albion side.

The mid-priced midfielder is the most popular among Baggies starters but is only owned by 2.5% ahead of a testing meeting with Chelsea.

West Bromwich Albion XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; C Townsend, O’Shea, Bartley, Ajayi, Furlong; Diangana, Sawyers, Livermore, M Pereira; C Robinson.

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Caballero; Alonso, T Silva, Christensen, R James; Kanté, Kovačić; Werner, Havertz, Mount; Abraham.

    Best move? 0.1 itb.

    A. Zaha >> Barnes
    B. Timo >> Jimenez / DCL
    C. Save FT

    McCarthy
    TAA, Saiss, Justin, Davies
    Salah, KDB, Rodríguez, Zaha
    Werner, Ings
    (Nyland, Bissouma, Mitchell, Davis)

    1. Bartowski

      Do B and keep Zaha for next week, may be move on to Trossard instead.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B, Zaha will come good

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Didn’t look good watching the game today

        1. Magic Zico

          He was ok, Everton are tough opponent

  4. La Roja

    James on for a bap

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Bartley game winning goal BAPs to come.

    2. Mbeumo's Post: 7✅

      He is not
      Bartley 3 bps for winning goal

  5. Ser Davos

    If Werner could bash the ball against Ward's hand(s) next gameweek then he's worth holding on to

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ward touched the ball with his hand more times than Werner has been on the ball

  6. Super Saints
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Would you change anything on this wildcard?

    Martinez Steer
    VVD Castagne Lamptey Taylor Mitchell
    Salah KDB Bruno Pereira Alzate
    Jiminez DCL Mitrovic

    1. Ser Davos
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Dale Stephens coming at 4.4

      1. Ser Davos
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        but otherwise it's the best we can do at this point

        3 atb with value attacking defence

        penalty taking big hitting mids

        value forwards

    2. Hulk Smash
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Can you eek anything out to upgrade Pereira to Foden? Or take Podence with the fixtures?

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Ings and Adams probably will wrip Burnley apart tonight with my luck. Had both GW1 and got rid on WC for GW2.

  8. G B
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Werner's surely going to destroy Saints in GW5. Maybe you Werner owners should keep? 👿

    1. BobbyV
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Nice try lol

    2. diesel001
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Saints won't keep the high line IMO. Thrashing last GW will be like their 'Leicester moment' this season.

    3. The Mandalorian
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Not falling for the one

  9. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Probably been said but Mount has looked good hasn’t he. Only positive

  10. DT’s HighFlyingBirds
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Why does Martin Tyler growl when Werner touches the ball? Has he captained him too?

  11. Rainer

    Restricting your best attacking outlet to RCB with two target men on the pitch is questionable.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      One target man. Tammy can't do s**t with crosses.

    Reece - 6 chanses created...On 1 bonus with no involvement in 5 goals and a yellow...insane

  13. Dannyb
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Werner and Anguissa to Rashford and Davis? Will play 352

  14. ivantys

    Werner almost taking throw ins

    1. Pukki Party
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      How do you almost take throw ins?

    Why does the commentator get excited when he says Werner - he’s been shite!

    werner looking threatening....

    kicked a west brom player instead of the ball

  17. Pedram
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Werner could drop as low as 9m by the end of international break

  18. Babelcopter
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Werner = german Welbeck?

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 11 Years

      German soldado

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Respect Soldado. Scored in his first game.

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Soldado was a pen merchant, would thrive today in the PL

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Respect Welbeck.

  19. PascalCygan

    I’m pretty set on saving a FT next week so I’m just going to try and unsee this from Werner...

    Or I may have to reassess.

    If my season was an emoji it would be the upside down smiling face.

    Christensen trying to get another red card...

  21. Van der Faart

    Get out of my team Werner. Never to return.

      Bye

  22. grooveymatt65

    werner to Vardy?

  23. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    DCL or Jimenez?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Both if possible, perhaps.

      DCL is getting an awful lot of chances. Jimenez is more clinical.

  24. Ze_Austin

    Chelsea defending well in the last 75 seconds

    1. Mbeumo's Post: 7✅

      Haha

  25. Hulk Smash

    Pereira is a baller. Great player to watch.

    1. G B
      • 10 Years

      I applaud anyone that punted on him. Always good to see the mavericks suceeed.

  26. Chucky

    Chelsea peno needed asap

  27. Eat my goal!

    Wernchenko certain to blank!

    2 Chelsea players on WC, what could go wrong. Now instead of focusing on keeping 2 FT, have to take one out.

    1. TAT
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Thinking of taking my two out for a hit…

      1. ZeBestee
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Very frustrating.

        1. TAT
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          It really is. Had Havertz and Werner the first two GWs, then for this GW kept Werner on WC and brought in James…

  29. Richarlidad

    Please no Werner cameo, I got Lamptey first on my bench

  30. Gudjohnsen
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Now I know why Klopp wasn't interested in Werner

    1. Begbie.
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Because he's already got one useless, overrated striker?
