Why Werner blanked at West Brom and whether to hold or sell him for FPL Gameweek 4

West Brom 3-3 Chelsea

  • Goals: Callum Robinson x2 (£5.5m), Kyle Bartley (£4.5m) | Mason Mount (£6.9m), Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.8m), Tammy Abraham (£7.3m)
  • Assists: Matheus Pereira (£6.0m), Darnell Furlong (£4.5m) | Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m), Kai Havertz (£8.4m), Mount
  • Bonus points: C Robinson x3, Mount x2, Reece James x1 (£5.1m)

Timo Werner (£9.4m) remains goalless in the Premier League after Chelsea’s trip to West Bromwich Albion did not go according to plan.

The German international had been understandably turned to by 800,000+ Fantasy Premier League managers for the Gameweek 3 captaincy only to be rewarded with nothing more than a two-point score.

As some start to lose patience in Werner, it serves to analyse what went wrong for him on Saturday evening as there were, admittedly, some mitigating circumstances behind his first blank of the campaign.

Tammy Abraham’s (£7.3m) impressive EFL Cup performance midweek was enough to convince Frank Lampard to hand the centre-forward role to him at the Hawthorns, which shifted Werner onto the left-hand side of a 4-2-3-1.

That left him with less time in the penalty box than his 35% ownership would have liked, but Chelsea’s abysmal start to the game in defence did not help him either.

The Blues gifted three goals to West Bromwich Albion inside the first 27 minutes which eased any pressure on the hosts considerably. Each time Chelsea conceded, the Baggies sat deeper and deeper inside their five-man defence and bank of four midfielders, making life much harder for any visiting attacker to find some space.

That said, there was one moment in the first half that Werner and his owners will view with regret. In the 14th minute, Mason Mount (£6.9m) finally managed to find some space around the back of left-back Conor Townsend (£4.5m), squaring to Werner, who crashed his short-range shot against Sam Johnstone‘s (£4.5m) crossbar.

Chelsea’s issues in other areas of the team then counted against Werner in the second half as Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) replaced Marcos Alonso (£6.0m) and winger Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.8m) came on for Mateo Kovačić (£5.5m).

With Hudson-Odoi on the pitch, who prefers to operate on the left-flank of attacking midfield as an inside forward, Lampard catered that with his formation tweak, shifting Werner onto the right-hand side.

“Callum (Hudson-Odoi) gave me everything I asked and wanted from him in terms of his ability to go one-on-one, trying to take people on. He got his goal. That’s what Callum needs to do. That’s the sort of impact he can have for us and it has to be consistent. He gave himself a great platform now to continue in that vain. He’ll be very important for us if he does.” – Frank Lampard

And when Olivier Giroud (£6.9m) took to the field in the place of Thiago Silva (£5.5m), enabling Lampard to pair the Frenchman with Abraham up-front in a 3-5-2, Werner was even further away from the danger areas.

During the final 15 minutes of the game, the only opportunity Chelsea’s number 11 had was when he emerged unmarked at the back post following a corner, only to see his powerful shot blocked by Kyle Bartley (£4.5m).

Would Chelsea have had to make these slew of changes to their side had they not gone 3-0 down in the opening half-an-hour? Almost certainly not. Would Werner have been better suited to this game had West Bromwich Albion not retreated into a deep block after a perfect start to the game? Almost certainly.

Perhaps that is the question his owners should consider ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 4. And even if Werner is deployed on the left-hand side of Chelsea’s attack again for that match, the Eagles’ have struggled to defend that area of the pitch in recent months. As Jan Sienkiewicz reminded us in a recent Captain Sensible article, the following left-sided players registered at least one attacking return facing them during Project Restart:

  • Sadio Mané (£11.9m) – goal
  • Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) – two assists
  • Christian Pulisic (£8.3m) – goal
  • Daniel Podence (£5.6m) – goal
  • Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) – goal and assist

Furthermore, the fitness of Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m) remain in the equation for Werner’s Fantasy appeal. The penetrative runs offered by the American, and Ziyech’s exceptionally creative abilities would have been the perfect tools to break down West Bromwich Albion’s deep block on Saturday, and could be important when facing Palace in Gameweek 4 – something to keep an eye on in Lampard’s upcoming press conferences.

Meanwhile, owners of Kai Havertz (£8.4m) are likely at a crossroads following his contribution to this game. Like Werner, the disastrous start to the game for Chelsea did take its toll, but a chance to operate as a number 10 produced the German’s best performance in a Premier League game so far.

Admittedly, he was making that improvement from a low base, but there were still encouraging signs. The question is: has it come soon enough for his 8.8% ownership to retain their faith for one more week.

In the 10th minute, Havertz picked the ball up on the right-hand edge of the penalty box and unleashed a powerful curling effort. Johnstone could not hold onto it, forced to punch it clear.

Then in the closing stages, the former Bayer Leverkusen man found some space in a central area of the penalty box, but his deflected shot went out for a corner.

And it was his link-up with Hudson-Odoi that got Chelsea closer to their hard-earned point in the 70th minute. That assist was his first attacking return of the season, making four a five-point score. Considering the interest in Blues assets this week, that is certainly less than was probably expected by his owners.

Chelsea’s ongoing defensive issues did not help Reece James‘ (£5.1m) Fantasy appeal, who has now blanked in two of his three Premier League outings this season.

Just as was the case against Brighton in Gameweek 1, the Blues were weakest in the full-back areas, and West Bromwich Albion were ruthless in capitalising on that at the Hawthorns.

In the fourth minute, a poor defensive header from Alonso landed at the feet of Matheus Pereira (£6.0m), who slid his pass across to Callum Robinson (£5.5m), who had escaped from James’ notice. He fired an effort across Willy Caballero (£4.9m) into the bottom corner, securing a third attacking return in as many matches for Pereira.

“I didn’t blame the players, I stated the facts on the clear mistakes that led to the goals. It is always going to be difficult in a game like this. It is not a tactical moment, it is a turnover in possession which we spoke about before.” – Frank Lampard

It may also be a little while until Silva adds much-needed stability to Chelsea’s backline as he slipped and gifted possession to Robinson for the third goal. It was Alonso who lost Bartley for the third goal, although it was poor awareness from James that played the West Bromwich Albion defender onside.

“Thiago Silva is going to be fantastic for us. He has been incredible in his career and absolutely, I will not look at him. I can talk about the mistakes, they are clear and I am open and honest about that. We are a team but we have to react around that and, to be fair, the team did in the second half. But, there is nothing on Thiago, I am sure he will stand up and say it was a mistake. But other than that, I thought he was pretty faultless in the game.” – Frank Lampard

Chelsea were much more secure with Azpilicueta coming on at left-back and they should have Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) in goal by the time they face Crystal Palace. Chelsea traditionally more porous in away games, having conceded 42 goals in 21 road trips since the start of last season, more than any other Premier League side since the start of last season. Although the Eagles might not be the best side to face at home right now, as Roy Hodgson’s men have recently developed a propensity for frustrating top-six sides on their own turf.

Meanwhile, the quality of James’ attacking contributions were not quite up to his usual standard at the Hawthorns.

His best pass arrived at the foot of Abraham in the 11th minute, which the striker skied horribly, but aside from that, James’ delivery was all about quantity and not quality. While he fired in a slew of crosses into the box all night, against a three-man defence, he struggled to find his team-mates too often.

Furthermore, James’ delivery from corners was also rather substandard, Chelsea offering much more in that department once Mount took over responsibility for them. As has been mentioned before, James is likely to lose corners and indirect free-kicks from his locker as soon as Ziyech returns to fitness anyway.

West Bromwich Albion XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; C Townsend, O’Shea, Bartley, Ajayi, Furlong; Diangana (M Phillips 74′), Sawyers, Livermore, M Pereira (Field 90+1′); C Robinson (Robson-Kanu 66′).

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): Caballero; Alonso (Azpilicueta 46′), T Silva (Giroud 73′), Christensen, R James; Kovačić (Hudson-Odoi 46′), Kanté; Werner, Havertz, Mount; Abraham.

    shall I save my ft and bench Davies, even tho he drops 0.1?

    I think going with 2 into the ib is a good idea... but what is anyway this season?

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

      I'm guessing Reguilon plays Tuesday and Davies on Thursday, so probably Reguilon against Man U

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

    Werner and Son to Mahrez and Vardy? (-4)

    1. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      yes for me.Don't know if Mahrez is nailed though.I guess after he scores he'll start against Leeds.

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Don't sell Werner for a hit

    3. The Sociologist
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Not with Mahrez involved. If he doesn’t start next week you’ll be spewing.

    4. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Highly likely Mahrez starts the next game imo.
      You could continue with Werner as his price has already dropped.

  3. Muscout
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Do -4 etc get cancelled if you play WC same week?

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

      Yes

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

    Ramsdale Steer
    TAA KWP Mitchell Taylor Justin
    Salah Sterling Son Romeu Bisso
    Vardy Werner Davies

    2ft, 0.5 itb

    All different but what do you like the most:

    A) Son + Werner to Bruno + DCL

    B) Son + Werner to Rashford + Jimenez

    C) Son + Werner to James + Martial

    D) Son to Rash

    E) Son to James

    Cheers.

    1. The bean
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A for me..

  5. rocky7st
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Which one?
    1) Son > Mahrez (FT)
    2) James/Saiss + Son > 4.4 + Bruno
    3) Son + Jimmez > Mahrez + Vardy

    Mahrez would be triple triple City. Vardy looks tempting could have had 4 if he stayed on the pitch

  6. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Will Son drop tonight?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      It's possible given falls are more random.

      1. Ruinenlust
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is it likely though

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Might get an extra day. FFFix has a drop.

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Who are you selling for? Would that plan change if another of your players got injured?

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

      He's dropping rapidly ... think it will be close

  7. yalala
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    With City's injury situation, no way Mahrez gets benched...right?

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Depends on fitness / Torres.

  8. TorresMagic™

      So

      Wait till after to make changes...

        Nah, reserves will play.

        1. Bushwhacker
          • 1 Year

          Those who have them.

  9. tinear

    Planning to transfer out Son, Podence, and Werner. To wilcard or -8 ?

    1. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      If you can just do son out, I’d keep podence and Werner

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        This.

    None of this WC is for the long term nonsense. You're all devastated and it's not going to get any easier. It'll be the last thing you think of tonight before you fall asleep and the first thing you think of tomorrow when you wake up. Plus it'll be Monday morning too.
    All week while you're at work, it's going to pop into your head at the worst possible momemt and pee you right off.
    I would encourage you all to calculate your pre-WC team's points too if you haven't done so already. Taking a hit or two should help, go ahead, knock yourselves out.

    THERE WASN'T ENOUGH DATA!!

    there, there, kisses, hugs etc.

    1. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I wonder how many people who were touting Bruno as a 250 point player/value at 10.5 pre season sold him on WC after just one poor gameweek and missed his haul this week...

      If Salah goes large tomorrow, things could get really ugly.

    2. fusen
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Alright captain hindsight.

      1. fusen
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        The only thing that waiting seems to be allowing is to get more garbage data due to this ridiculous season.

        I've been thinking I'm going to try and not use my wildcard till the international break but who is to say gw5 or 6 or 7 won't be ridiculous and bring in a whole new template

      2. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        It isn't hindsight though. There wasn't enough data. I was astonished at the amount of people wildcarding last week to get players in who had had 1 good gameweek, or maybe 2, for this week. People say it is a weird start to the season - it was just a blank for two teams people would actually want players from (let's face it, of Villa, Burnley, City and United, people only missed the City and the United picks). I still have my WC intact and I have had a better than average GW this week with a good OR and a monster GW last week. I have done this by not kneejerking. The picks I made at the start of the season are still good picks now.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          How can you conclude whether a WC is successful or not within a GW when you argue that 2 GWs aren't enough data? There is a contradiction there.

          Also the reason there were a lot of WCs wasn't only to get in form players/teams, it was also due to fixtures. My team was set up for GW1 and GW2 from the beginning and with the WC, it's set up for a longer term. Even for the players who blanked, the fixtures are still there so I'm quite happy with my WC decision.

        2. RoysCallerAnne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Indeed. Foresight, not hindsight, was figuring out that no pre-season and the non-competitive nature of the title race and top4 and even relegation after lockdown would skew the first few GWs. It's not too difficult to predict things would be unpredictable 😉

          1. The Big Fella
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            It hasn't really been too unpredictable though. Those with the better fixtures have done better. Those with the tougher fixtures haven't. There are a couple of exceptions (Leicester today, Chelsea...) but overall, the good players in the teams with the good fixtures have scored i.e. Ings this GW. Son may have scored if he weren't injured at half time as he had hit the crossbar a couple of times and has good fixtures going forwards. The list goes on. The new Chelsea lads needed time to settle in. Every year we see the same thing - I knew Werner wouldn't hit it off to an amazing start, no matter his quality. New league, new team, 5-6 new players to settle in with.

            I am not saying I will finish well this season. I am a pretty average player I think as I always get the captaincy wrong but I honestly don't think the start to this season has been hard to manage.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      This is hilarious. If you are gonna post that, at least you should have had a good start yourself. Most of those WCers are doing better than you.

      Obvious signs of mental health issues in your post though, feel for you.

      1. RoysCallerAnne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers, i'll try and battle on through my mental health issues with your kind words.

        Most WCers are doing better than me, you say. hmm true, not my best start ever. Check out my finishes though. I know who I'd bet on.

    Just work up to 5 points from 5 (double Wolves defence and triple City attack)... yuck... have to hate this game sometimes 🙁

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years

      Yep, I'm certainly not loving it atm.

  13. deshawn7
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Planning a Son -> 6.0 mid this GW
    Then JRod - > Bruno next GW (hopefully no price rise)

    Best 6.0m mid option:
    A) Pereira
    B) Townsend (have Mitchell)
    C) Troussard (have Lamptey)

    Any other suggestions?

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I like A for the next few fixtures

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Personally, still not convinced by Man Utd tbh.
      But if you were to bring a player in then Fernandes would probably be the best one.

  14. Chucky
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Would you have
    A) Ings and Digne
    or
    B) Werner and Coleman

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      A by a mile

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Would you have Ings or Werner?

      1. Chucky
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Werner plays for the better team and with puli and ziyech back after IB,he could become a real force... but ings looks good for short term i think... you keeoing Werner?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I sell, he scores a hatty.
          Go the short term route then.

          1. Chucky
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            both could do well this week. cheers

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

          But that also means there are multiple goal scores possible for Chelsea ... if Southampton score it is likely that Ings will be involved

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

            Different scorers (not scores)

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Any other Egan replacements (4.9 SP with 0 ITB) to consider besides Lamptey?

    Don't want to have to spend another transfer on this slot later (ruling out the likes of Justin).

    1. Gashead9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Cheers mate! Good player, but I've already got Meslier in goal -- can't imagine having double Leeds defence.

  16. Muscout

    McCarthy
    TAA, Doherty, Mitchell
    Salah, KDB, Son, ASM
    Werner, DCL, Mitro

    Steer, Bissouma, Vinagre, Steer

    0.4itb, WC now or wait?

    1. Traction Engine Foot

      Wait, probably just sell Son

    2. Gashead9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    • 6 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    WC Team, how’s it looking? 0.9 ITB, if Soucek drops and I can buy him at 4.9 then Lamptey will become Castagne

    Martinez,
    TAA, Robbo, Lamptey
    Salah, KDB, Perreira, Soucek
    Vardy, Ings, Mitrovic

    4.0 GK, Mitchell, Bissouma, Dunne

    1. fusen

      What is the rationale behind two Liverpool defenders?

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        not having to decide which one to pick as they should both do very well. imo 🙂

      2. Gashead9
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any chance of getting “ Non-Penalty XG” and even Big Chances (Non-Penalty) added to the main stats tables in the Members Area?

    Difficult trying to interpret the tables this season with all the penalties

  25. thetommy14

      Which player(s) could double rise this week in your opinion?

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

        Bamford and DCL

      2. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Bamford DCL Castagne and maybe Vardy

    • raff97
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Disastrous first week on WC.

      Martinez (4.0)
      Digne James Saiss (LampT Mitchell)
      Salah kdb hamez podence (4.5)
      Jimi Werner DCL

      0.7 ITB

      Werner to Vardy no brainer or points chasing? or save the transfer? Ive really lost patience with Timo and almost with this whole FPL season

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        i d save. werner has a decent fixture and 2ft following gw will be nice. thats my plan anyway

        1. raff97
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yeah I might just do that now that Ive eaten Werner's TV loss. Im too stubborn to pay an extra 0.1 for someone.

          One an unrelated note, Tommy Fury supports your football team https://youtu.be/q2dqc7iwUWc?t=464

      2. diabydoesgallas
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        I’d do it. Werner ain’t it right now, and vardy is king of the pens.

    • Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Finally happy with my team for the next gw:
      Ryan
      TAA Castagne Egan 🙁 Robbo
      Jrod Havertz KDB
      DCL Ings Vardy

      No WC/No hits taken so far
      Only 2 transfers made: J rod(gw2) and KDB(gw3) in places of Alli and Auba perspectively
      Managing 788ovr rank with failed captains:Auba, Auba and KDB is a big success for me.
      I think the only thing that really helped is that I own from the start the 2 players with the most PTS so far in the game(DCL + Vardy)

      Have to say that no hits strategy really works. I was about to get Saiss in for Davies for -4 this gw but I didn't and I ended up starting with Harisson Reed for tomorrow's game (lol... Hope he assists a goal or at least 3 PTS)

      That's what I wanted to share with you mates

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        1. Shark Team
          • 3 Years

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            haha ok. still pretty good considering the season most of the folks here are having. i m 2m rank myself.

            1. Shark Team
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Yes I started with no Salah I'm really grateful for my rank couldn't imagine being in a better place. Good luck and have fun 😉

    • pstokes2010
      • 10 Years

      32-4 so far. How many points should I be expecting from Mitro, TAA, Robbo and Salah captain?

      1. yalala
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        The way things are going, could be anywhere between 5 and 50
