Werner fails another test as Jorginho doubles down on Chelsea penalty duties

CHELSEA 4-0 CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Goals: Ben Chilwell (£5.5m), Kurt Zouma (£5.0m), Jorginho x2 (£5.1m)
  • Assists: Chilwell, Tammy Abraham (£7.3m), Kai Havertz (£8.4m)
  • Bonus:  Chilwell x3, Jorginho x2, Zouma x1

Timo Werner (£9.4m) continues to frustrate his FPL ownership after a third consecutive blank in Gameweek 4 against Crystal Palace.

Just after full time at Stamford Bridge in the weekend’s early kick-off, only benched team-mate Reece James (£5.1m) had suffered more sales than the Germany forward.

Having at least managed to get off a goal attempt every 27 minutes over the first three gameweeks, Werner only had one shot against the Eagles.

WERN YOUR PENALTIES

Having taken a 2-0 lead through Ben Chilwell (£5.5m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.0m), Chelsea won two penalties for fouls on Tammy Abraham (£7.3m) and Kai Havertz (£8.4m).

The midfielder pulled rank on Werner for the first spot-kick, while captain Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) had to take the ball from Abraham in order to give Jorginho his second penalty of the day.

On the issue, Lampard stated:

“It’s been dealt with. On the pitch and in the dressing room. No problems, just dealt with. I want leaders and I don’t mind a little bit of conflict. If Tammy wants to take it because he wants a goal, he can get put in his place a little bit and I appreciate his eagerness because his performance deserved a goal. But those are the rules. You don’t jump ahead of the list at any moment, unless maybe someone’s on a hat-trick and we’re so comfortable that I decide.” – Frank Lampard

While we already knew that Jorginho was Chelsea’s first-choice penalty taker, Lampard failed to provide the rest of the “list”.

And unfortunately for Werner’s ownership, still not getting near spot-kick duty probably counts against him even more than it would in a normal campaign.

HOT START FOR CHILWELL

Former Leicester defender Chilwell broke the deadlock after 50 minutes, firing past Vicente Guaita (£5.0m) after an error from Mamadou Sakho (£4.5m) saw Tyrick Mitchell (£4.1m) head an Azpilicueta cross back into the box where the Chelsea left-back pounced.

And it was Chilwell’s cross, following a cleared corner, which Zouma rose highest to head home above Sakho.

Having seen Willian (£8.0m) depart for Arsenal in the summer, Chelsea were left without their main set-piece taker.

With James on the bench and Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m) still injured, Chilwell took all but one of the Blues’ corners at Stamford Bridge, while also having a share of free-kicks to boost his assist potential.

The defender also had 13 more final-third touches than any other player on show at Stamford Bridge. On his new left-back, Lampard explained:

“[He’s got that] ability to be so high up the pitch when you want him to be – not that he’s reckless but he arrives, he’s got the capacity to get up and get back. Great quality on the ball. In terms of the signings we’ve brought in, he knows the Premier League. It’s just been a case of his fitness. They’ve all had issues a little bit, the lads that have come in. Whether they’re injured, not had enough pre-season – we have to give those boys a little bit of time.” – Ben Chilwell

EAGLES FAIL TO FLY

While Chilwell excelled going forward, the fact that new Chelsea stopper Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) faced zero shots on target is evidence that Lampard’s defence will face sterner tests.

Hodgson was all too aware that despite an impressive first half where Palace stifled their hosts, an early second-half goal put paid to their plans of containment.

“We conceded four and unfortunately all four were very clear individual errors at the back. And when that happens, it’s hard to come back from it unless you’ve got a clear attacking threat – we didn’t have that today. We didn’t have that at any stage of the game. In the first half our defending was good, our off-the-ball work was excellent. But on the ball we didn’t show the composure or the confidence that I would’ve liked the team to show. Against a team that pressurises well like Chelsea did today, it was always going to be a question of making certain that they didn’t score one. Unfortunately we’ve gifted them a goal after 50 minutes and to compound everything, we gifted them two goals at the end with the two penalties. There was some poor performances out there today, that’s for sure. The players are more than aware [of that].” – Roy Hodgson

Budget defender Mitchell was the guilty party for the first spot-kick, while Sakho compounded his own poor performance by giving away the second penalty.

Asked specifically about Wilfried Zaha‘s (£7.2m) lack of involvement, Hodgson added:

“You’ve got to work hard to get those touches for yourself.” – Roy Hodgson

On what changed for his team in the second half, Lampard explained:

“The message at half time was change it up – more speed, more movements, change it up. Not too many put four past Palace. First half we started well but then we came off it a little bit. Not enough speed in our game last 20 minutes of the first half. The urgency of our game; we had to mix it up. The way we started [in the second half], there was a bit more movement. We had to get Ben Chilwell into the game, he was arriving in high areas but we weren’t finding him.” – Frank Lampard

Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): E Mendy; Chilwell, Zouma, T Silva, Azpilicueta; Kanté (Kovacic 83′), Jorginho; Werner, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi (Pulisic 83′); Abraham.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; Mitchell, Sakho, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze, McArthur (Riedewald 71′), McCarthy (Milivojevic 67′), Townsend; Zaha, Ayew.

PREMIUM MEMBERS ANALYSIS

Werner’s touch heatmap (above) is indicative of his lack of touches in the penalty area; the forward managed just two over 90 minutes.

While the statistics will not show that the German made plenty of good runs, he failed to make telling contributions on the rare occasion a team-mate found him in space.

Christian Pulisic (£8.3m) released Werner at the halfway line almost immediately after being introduced but the forward’s lack of incisiveness allowed the Palace defence to regroup, snuffing out any danger.

Players sorted by total attempts in Chelsea 4-0 win over Palace

Six players attempted more shots than Werner at Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 4, with Lampard’s comments on Abraham’s performance perhaps suggesting that the English striker may continue as Chelsea’s frontman.

As mentioned above, Chilwell (41) lead the way for final-third touches. His total of 68 touches in the opposition half was also 13 more than next-best Jorginho.

    Looking back this morning at my decision of going KDB(c) I dont feel bad about it, him and his opponents ticked quite few boxes.

    If we were all nailing our choices week after week than ffs league would be full of top 10k players, when captain fails it hurts but then its down to other 10 players to soften the blow. I got few with decent chances today (Ings and Jimi looking best) and sure that other KDB cappers too so keep your heads up and good luck !

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Salah ticked more boxes

            I was choosing captain from the players I own and KDB ticked many boxes in my decision making process.

                Maybe , maybe not will see after today.
                Easy to comment in hindsight.

                  Put it this way I didn't say KDB (c) to anyone, so I think foresight in my case

                      It was Salah or Sterling if had any of them , if not it would of been one of Jiminez or Ings. But I only have Salah of these. I have Salah (c) and 337k atm

      I do. I brought Ings in in order to captain him. Then I switched it to Jimi. Last minute I followed the herd and gave it to KDB. I feel like a damn fool. Of course both Ings and Jimi will haul and it will be my own damn fault 🙁

        Lets hope they haul.

        1 month, 25 days ago

        I've learned to never listen to the herd over such matters. Most often the herd's pick is based on last performance. Go with your own rationale. I've gone for Jimi based on fixture. City aren't up to speed yet.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Not that simple though. Analyses pre-season showed that the best indicator of the right captaincy pick is this very site's weekly vote. I went with that.

          1. Dr Van Nostrand
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Interesting I missed that. Was it based on last season?

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Last 3 or 4 I think. An article will be in here somewhere. But this season has started so weirdly that all the Pro Pundits and Stattos are even behind me in their OR.

              1. Andy_Social
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                I dimly recall there was the caveat mentioned that this year FFS expect more new members to join in, with their inexperienced picks, and so the voting might become diluted with bad judgements. Will be interesting to look out for that once things settle down - will Salah and KDB be the top 2 picks come-what-may? Myself, I'll be more sceptical of using it as a guide going forward!

                1. Dr Van Nostrand
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years

                  Cheers well I think things are too unprectible at the start of the season for it to hold. Maybe over the season. I'd take it into consideration but fixtures form and gut are more important to me. Especially fixture

      Don’t worry about it, sterling was trash as well and could just of easily have blanked.

        • 5 Years

        Sterling was far more dangerous could of easily had a hatrick with better finishing. Perhaps he already used it up midweek tho!

            Yeh I’m tempted by Jorginho.
            Podence or a premium could go for him.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea

    If a team is awarded a penalty, can a manager make a quick sub to bring on a player to take it?

    1. Hakim Ziyech

      Yes ofcourse

        Thought it might not be considered an official break in play until taken?

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          No it isn’t unless the manager made the 1st sub recently

    2. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      The defending team often do if the keeper has been sent off, so I see no reason nit to allow the attacking team to make a sub.

      But I don't know the actual rule. Just commenting

      Don’t think so. At least on FIFA, if you queue a pause before a penalty is given, it only “activates” after the penalty is taken.

    How my #FPL works:

    Zaha & Klich before & after I got them:
    41 pts

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      ...41 before, 8 after.
      -Got Son after his 24 pts......... 1 pt + injury
      -Had Kane in gw1, sold for Martial........ Gw2: Kane 21 pts VS Martial 2 pts
      -Egan & Dier over Justin & Mitchell......... 1 pt (+1 red card) VS 27 pts
      -Tierney warmup injury.

      No jammy subs, no random penalty hauls.
      If it keeps going the same unlucky way, the quote "when the fun stops, stop" may be the one to follow.

      Do you enjoy FPL?

        Those things are unfortunate but I believe in all things that luck will even itself out over time

        Patience is key mate. Points chasing rarely works, especially the following week. Make sound, medium term decisions and give them 3 or 4 weeks. You're picking them for a reason. I sold Ings after gw1 which was dumb and I brought in vardy this week which was also a stupid decision so beat yourself up too much man

        Unlucky, I'm in exact same boat. All the casuals in my leagues are flying

        I'm not enjoying this year's fpl sadly

  11. Kakashi Of The Leaf

    1 month, 25 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Digne Ayling Saiss
    Sterling KDB Podence
    Werner Jimenez DCL

    Tierney Bissouma Reed

    1FT. Thinking of Tierney>Chillwell.
    But anyways will be wildcarding next week. How about WC this week itself?

  12. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    DCL, Wilson, Maupay, Ings, Jiminez Brewster (cheap) - no need for expensive fwds when you have these options.

    Kane & Vardy seem a bit of a waste of cash, right?

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Agreed.

    2. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I have 3 of those.
      DCL,Jimenez and Brewster.

      Allows Salah,KDB,Bruno,Fernandes,5.5 in midfield.

      1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        same with salah, kdb, sterling, james, barnes in mid 🙂

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Lol. 2 Bruno’s.
          One should be Rodriguez

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah that's true but I still probably going to bring in Kane because of the lack of other good captaincy options GW5&8

      1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        ?

        sterling, salah, kdb can be captanized everytime against everyone

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          That's true but I just think Kane would be the better option those two weeks

        2. Houldsworth Hatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Not when KDB is so deep like the last 2 weeks when I’ve captained him.

    4. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year

      For me its down to Vardy or Bruno when im WCing, maybe this GW or next

    5. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah but as a Kane owner, it feels waste of transfer to get rid. Kind of "don't buy, don't sell" territory.

    6. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Forgot wood

    7. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Vardy isn’t a waste of cash. He is a proven fpl sensation. I have him because it is easier to captain him over the likes of DCL, Wilson etc

  13. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
    • 8 Years

    Have a feeling that United or Liverpool will won the game on penalty or somehow last night on ellan road...

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I had feelings about penalties yesterday which is why I got 2 points for Zaha and Klich while leaving the 18-point JRod on my bench 🙁

      Damn feelings!!!

      1. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Well to be honest, you deserved that if you benched JRod...lesson learned i guess 🙂

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          And here I was annoyed with Bissouma bench points

      3. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  14. Flynny
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Morning. Anyone know if son is away with South korea during the break?

    Looking to bring him in for gw5 - but will be put off if he is playing in the far East a couple of days beforehand

    Thanks

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If he plays the last game for South Korea is 13th, Spurs play 18th

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        That's good

  15. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Part of me is happy, 26 from 3 seems a good start, DCL and Wilson saved me. But so disappointed with KDB (c) 🙁 1 return would have been fine 🙁

  16. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Which one long term?
    A) Bruno and Brewster 1st sub (343)
    B) Kane and Bissouma 1st sub (433)

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      A

  17. Wiseman Resistant ⚽⚠
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Ok, who are the best 4.5 defenders ?
    Want to dump James and Dunne for two cool 4.5s
    Have Lamptey already...
    Ayling maybe ?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah Ayling does look good for attacking threat, KWP still decent after the Chelsea game, maybe Villa defenders as their fixtures aren't too bad. Also Lewis has dropped to 4.4 but some hard fixtures

    2. themaindanger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 25 days ago

      KWP or Justin if you can stretch the extra 0.2

  18. Saosin
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Adams or Mitro to Wilson?

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I've just done Mitrovic > Wilson even though not played and IB.

      Catching price rises (hopefully) and fixtures are awesome

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Mitro

  19. The Legend Squad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Ah man. I did Werner and Wilson to DCL and Jimenez.

    A bit of rough with the smooth, but happy that Werner is out.

    I didn’t watch the game - did Wilson pass the eye test?

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      unlucky, I got away with doing Werner + Richarlison out for a hit... was horrible seeing Rich starting!

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Rich starting and only getting a 1 pointer was actually better for us who took a hit to remove him.
        Meant no bench player points for those keeping Rich.

        Richarlison > DCL . This week covered my hit this week .

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I'd have to hope Jimmy and Ings outscore Rich and Werner +4

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Yeh my other move in the hit was Son > Bruno.
            Hopefully Bruno outscore ps Son.

            I’d be very disappointed if your hit isn’t payed back and some this week. Those were good moves.

            1. jia you jia you

    2. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Wilson - 3pts behind DCL, 1.2m cheaper, what's nit to like.

      I'm currently on:

      DCL - Wilson - Brewster and a loaded midfield

    3. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He looks sharp but Burnley are another type of bad.

    4. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Wilson is looking very good, strong & fast

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

        agreed, looks in great nick but don't trust Newcastle to hold form

  20. jia you jia you

    Any update on Saiss being left out? Zero pointer from Lamptey incoming if so 🙁

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        true but getting -1 from my Wolves double up last GW combined with this is annoying

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah
          They're trying something new this season.

          1. Dynamic Duos

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 25 days ago

              Attacking play.
              Need time to adapt i guess.
              Let's see

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Dendoncker is his major threat given he scored the winner against Fulham last time they played

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Talks of Donk playing midfield to add some steel, Moutinho not been playing well

  21. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Likelihood of both Saiss and Podence starting or at least getting minutes today? Don't fancy my Lamptey 0 pointer off the bench..

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Depends on the game, Borg on bench for starters

  22. drughi

    Kdb (C) against arsenal next gw ?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Do you have, Son, Kane or Vardy?

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Son Kane 🙂 when you consider only the xGc column and not the xG and xGI columns

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not sure

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Think its the right call

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Sure, will hopefully work one day

  23. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Barely anyone in my ML has any wolves, could really do with them showing up today!

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Same
      Jimenez hat-trick needed

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Semado 6-10 pointer and jimmy 8-10 pointer would suffice

  24. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Would you do Ings to Wilson/Mitro/Muapay with Southampton's fixtures turning red?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Need to see today's games buddy.
      Foden Ings >> Son Mitro (-4) can work for me but not sure atm

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Ings can do well in red fixtures but we do have a wealth of options up top this season... def wouldn't bother with Mitro though myself

    3. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Maybe Ings before Brighton play WBA at home

  25. Cocomelon
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Transferred Wilson out for Jiminez this game week. Hope Jimi saves me as I also have the armband on him

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        doubt he matches Wilson's score

        1. Cocomelon
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Time will tell. Fulham are hopeless at the back

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              In 76 PL games Jimenez has double returned (2x goals, 2x assists or 1x goal and 1x assist) on 6 occasions.

              1. Cocomelon
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  Perfect opportunity to improve on that stat today then

          A) Barnes
          B) Zaha

            Save. Everyone is terrible right now. Save FT until you can double swap to TAA and Robbo for the season.

          Really need Danny Ings (c) to go medieval on WBA this lunchtime

            same mate, these decisions can give a real edge particularly if Salah blanks in addition to KdB

        6. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Is there any player who makes you laugh whenever you watch him play?

          Adama Traoré tops the list for me because of how he leaves defenders confused or bullies them with his ass and thigh.

          Pickford, a close 2nd for how shite he is 😆
