Jimenez blanks as Saiss earns bonus from wing-back berth and Vinagre departs

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 1-0 FULHAM

  • Goals: Pedro Neto (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Leander Dendoncker (£4.9m)
  • Bonus:  Max Kilman (£4.0m) x3, Romain Saiss (£5.1m), Willy Boly (£5.5m) x2

A dour 1-0 win for Wolves at home to Fulham did very little to repay the faith shown by the net 141,000 managers who brought in Raul Jimenez (£8.6m) for Gameweek 4.

Nuno Espirito Santo summed the game up with three lines in his post-match offering:

Not quite (the performance I wanted). Not so compact in defence and not quite creative in attack. I think we should improve.

Going into more detail, the Wolves boss added:

We started the game well, organised. We had some problems in attack. Fulham were organised.

Second half we were much better, we created and were on the front foot and got the goal. It was important to bounce back from last week but we know it is important to improve.

We made a lot of things better than last week but with our standards I believe we should do better. We should manage the game better after we score.

I want to see what’s missing – we need to be sharper, we need to pass the ball faster, we need to control the ball, combine, turn faster, win duels. There are a lot of things to improve.

JIM PICKINGS

Nuno was spot on in his assessment of Wolves’ attack in the first half, though seven chances created in the whole game is indicative of a poor attacking performance across the 90 minutes.

Of Jimenez’s three shots in the game, only the one after 54 minutes was a particularly decent scoring opportunity: a Max Kilman (£4.0m) clearance ended up putting the Mexico striker in a one-on-one situation with Alphonse Areola (£4.5m). Jimenez, fresh from signing a new four-year deal at Molineux, shot straight at the Fulham goalkeeper and Areola then held the ball from Leander Dendoncker‘s (£4.9m) follow-up attempt.

Two minutes later, a blocked Dendoncker effort ended up at the feet of Pedro Neto (£5.5m), who slotted a left-footed effort into the right-hand side of the net.

PRE-SAISS PLAY

With Marcal (£4.9m) injured and Ruben Vinagre (£4.4m) on his way out of the club, Romain Saiss (£5.1m) took over at left wing-back. However, it appears likely that the Moroccan will revert to his usual position with Wolves adding further cover at left wing-back.

Saiss was joint-top for clearances, blocks and interceptions (seven) with Kilman, who operated on the left-hand side of Wolves’ central defensive unit and ended up bagging maximum bonus points.

Saiss’ eight-point score was also a bonus for those who invested in Wolves for a sustained run of favourable fixtures from Gameweek 4.

CANDID KAMARA

As with Wolves, Fulham fashioned just one ‘big’ opportunity in the tie which fell to Aboubakar Kamara (pictured above with Saiss).

The £5.0m midfielder was unselfishly found in the area by Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m), who had been released after excellent play by substitute Ademola Lookman (£5.0m).

Kamara only managed to shoot straight at Rui Patricio (£5.5m), mirroring Jimenez’s failure to make a gilt-edged chance count.

Scott Parker, however, was upbeat about his team’s performance despite a fourth consecutive defeat in four gameweeks.

The Fulham chief said:

I am delighted and proud of the team in what they produced today. They showed every facet of what a team needs to show, it has been well documented defensively in terms of conceding goals.

For large parts we nullified their threat as a counter-attacking team and on the other side of it we defended as best we can. We have been absolutely gutted at some of the goals we have conceded – the players are hurting as much as anyone they are not winning games.

I think we got a performance today. We have had that in other games as well. If you could, you would wave a magic wand or click a finger and everything would be perfect but it is not that easy.

On Lookman, who was part of a more sustained offensive threat from Fulham in the last quarter of the game, Parker added:

You saw the boy’s quality in the time he had on the pitch. There is a directness about him, a willingness to cause problems and that is what we need. He will be a massive asset for us.

Parker set his troops up in a 4-2-3-1 formation at Molineux, with Joe Bryan (£4.9m) and Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) interchangeable on the left flank.

NELSON’S COLUMN

Nelson Semedo (£5.5m) came within inches of scoring in the opening half, with Areola just about managing to deflect the defender’s effort over the bar with a sprawling save.

That opportunity came about after the keeper had spilled a Neto shot into Semedo’s path.

The wing-back came off after 77 minutes with what looked like an injury, though it was downplayed by Nuno after the game.

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Kilman, Coady, Boly; Saiss, Neves, Dendoncker, Semedo (Hoever 77′); Neto (Traoré 83′), Jimenez, Podence (Moutinho 70′).

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Robinson, Ream, Le Marchand, Aina; Anguissa, Cairney; Bryan (Kamara 67′), De Cordova-Reid (Kebano 81′), Cavaleiro (Lookman 67′); Mitrovic.

    Got Son, reckon it's wise to bring Kane in as well?

    1. JBG

      Why not, both are C options going forward. Unless things change after the IB.

    2. Mac90

      Look at the congested fixtures. I brought in Son just this morning and now I'm still thinking whether it's wise to bring in Kane

      Did it this morning and it feels good.

    Thoughts on the following WC?

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robertson, Justin, Mitchell (KWP, Konsa)
    Salah, KDB, Son, Rodriguez (Bissouma)
    Kane, DCL, Brewster

    Would you downgrade KDB in order to improve defence / Brewster?

    1. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Non member here, but KDB is so expensive and he blanked twice now. Overpriced based on his output

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        You're predicting future points not past ones. KdB still created 5 chances in the Leeds game, hit the post and has pens.

        1. Mac90

              Just by watching the Leeds game you could see KDB had potential for points

              1. Aubamewho
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                I think the mid week game affected both KDB and Mahrez performance.

          2. mirkomen77
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Still think Son(9) + Jrod(7.8) will outscore KDB (11.6) + 5.2 midfielder in the next 5/6 games. Well, not if Jorginho (5.1) gets a penalty a game 😉

        Double Everton feels like double Liverpool fullbacks move and look how that turned out

          Disagree with this. Double Everton looks like a great shout at the moment.

          1. MSTRKRFTSMN
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            So did Liverpool double fullbacks after the arsenal game

              1 month, 20 days ago

              Feels like a slightly tenuous comparison. & I don't think one freak game is enough to banish the idea of a Robbo / TAA double up. They're still gonna score higher than most more expensive attacking players this season.

        Very similar to my WC team, personally prefer Bamford or Wilson to Maupay but nice team

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        No others? Havertz will have Ziyech and Pulisic, with Werner up front prolly next GW. Could be lethal

        All day long

        I ditched Mahrez instead. I have a sneaking feeling that 8.4m midfield slot belonging to a Chelsea mid is going to be a nice differential slot that people are going to really struggle to fill.

        1. Kakashi Of The Leaf
          • 4 Years

          This. Have gone Pulisic myself on WC

    5. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 20 days ago

      It's amusing how TAA opinions like "essential" and "would have him at 8.5" or "worth it for his attacking returns alone" have completely disappeared. Goes to show how quickly the landscape can change in FPL.

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        True. If they can just tighten up at the back, Trent can get 9-12pts any game, and potentially higher tho

        1. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          But he looks scrap atm

      2. JONALDINHO
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        It’s because Robbo matches him for 0.5 less. Show me a team without a pool defender

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I have no Liverpool defenders and I think I'm decently setup. That said, I'm looking to fix that and get Robbo in GW6.

        2. skodaole2
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I dont think they are essential to have, LIV would be impossible to repeat last year's scores. Plus they were fortunate to practically play the same starting XI every GW, no big injuries or rotation. I expect all of them to lose games this year and even when they play, i think conceding 3 to Leeds and 7 to AVL when you have invested 6.5, 7 or 7.5 for a defender (or even more than that if you have to of them) you would prefer to just get 5 defs with 4.5 and invest all your budget in attack. I dont have LIV defs and cant see me getting one of them unless their ownership goes much lower.

      3. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        I'm looking to bring Robbo in. I think he'll outscore TAA this year based on his more aggressive positioning and equal duty on set pieces (other than direct FKs).

        He's looked a better FPL asset all season.

        1. MSTRKRFTSMN
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Naive

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Goalposts change.

            Last season, Mark refused to get KdB and persisted with Sterling to his detriment. Nobody would have said at the start of the season that KdB would be the better FPL asset and yet positioning, set pieces and PKs tilted it in his favor.

            I see more of Liverpool's attacking going down the left and TAA being pushed back more because teams know that Liverpool's right was more dangerous but also weaker, so they are being pressed back more.

            1. MSTRKRFTSMN
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              You’re ignoring free kicks?

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                I think Robertson's increased goal threat outstrips it.

                So far, Robbo's xG is 0.86 vs TAAs 0.24.

                TAA scored 3 free kicks last season and one goal from open play. I don't think this is worth 0.5m more. Robbo has already scored a goal from open play and now he's on corners on the left side (and gotten an assist).

                I just don't think there's 0.5m in value there. I would have said there was at the start of the season, but as I said, the goalposts change.

                1. Stoichkov#8
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  agree

                2. MSTRKRFTSMN
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Good luck. I’ll have you a formerly bet that TAA gets more points per £ from here on. You e also got tsimikas who might take more game time off robbo - make him more ‘testable’ than TAA. Price aside, I don’t see an argument for robbo - certainly not this speculation that Liverpool will attack down the opposite side to the one that Salah plays on. Of Trent drops to 7.4 as looks likely then it changes the goalsoosts again for you

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    Okay, I'll take that friendly bet.

                    Robbo to outscore TAA in terms of points per £ for the season. We'll bookmark it and come back to it.

                    1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                      • 7 Years
                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      Dealio.

            2. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              this is a good point, Robertson has more freedom knowing he has VVD behind. Gomez has been a train wreck since project restart, and that is being reflected in a deeper position for TAA (who is also an average defender).

              You can see teams increasingly targeting Liverpool's right flank.

              1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                You could also argue that TAA has Salah infront of Homs nd crosses to mane who is better in the air. But I wouldn’t use either argument to overlook that Trent takes the vast majority of free kicks

                1. No Professionals
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  of course he is a danger from free kicks. but in open play Robertson looks better. even if the two cancel each other out, Robertson is cheaper.

                2. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Robertson takes freekicks on the left side when they're deep as well as the left sided corners. The only thing TAA takes that Robbo doesn't is direct FKs.

                  1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                    • 7 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    That’s just it correct. TAA takes all direct and the vast majority of indirect either side

                    1. MSTRKRFTSMN
                      • 7 Years

        looks good, not sure i'd feel comfortable having taken a -4 with 2 weeks and a load of internationals until the next gw. it would be risky at the best of times, but with covid you can pretty much guarantee they'll be some dramas.

        A, but the thing is, Kane should be secure right? Check out their upcoming fixtures. Congested

        1. DARE TO BISCAN
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I think Kane plays, unless injured.

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years

            and probably when injured too

            1. DARE TO BISCAN
              • 2 Years

          We have a back up striker now so he'll be rested in cup games

    11. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!

      Bottomed, RMWCT
      McCarthy Steer
      Chilwell Keane Lamptey Ayling KWP
      Son Sterling Grealish Mane Hamez
      DCL Bamford Wilson

      Do I downgrade Wilson to Brewster and upgrade Grealish or the defence or leave as is for options and rotation?

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Wait, I'm sorry, you want to transfer out 2 players who just hauled?

        1. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          It’s about long term not point chasing

      2. NateDogsCats
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Villa are looking good and have good fixtures for a while, Wilson is doing fine. I'd hold on unless you have a transfer you desperately want to make.

          1. mirkomen77
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Don't think Arsenal(A), Leicester (A),West Ham(A) and Leeds in the next 6 are nice fixtures for Villa. We are all still hungover from the Liverpool match

      3. Atimis
        • 4 Years

        What would you do about 4.0 def spot while on WC? Mitchell surely gonna lost or already lost his place.

        1. MSTRKRFTSMN
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          No good options at that price point. These guys are just budget enablers. Rumours that PVA could still be sold today, so might be one to watch

        2. Zrinkec

            I am thinking about same idk maybe Ferguson will be starter when he returns?

            • 5 Years

            Mitchell is 4.1, you are better off finding 0.3 to get Cooper or Balbuena at 4.4. Otherwise take gamble on Kilman at 4.0

            Take a gamble on Amartey(injured unfortunately) or Benjohnson at 4.0
            I have Jageilka at 4.0 just because I used to have him years ago when he was fantasy gem in Everton 😀

            There aren't any traps at 4.0, they aren't meant to be starters

        11. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          who would you prioritise replacing:

          A) Foden (probably to grealish)
          B) Bamford (to Maupay)

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I'd hold both.

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              interesting. 2 frees would allow me to get kane in a week later for free.

              1. avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Foden up against Arsenal is quite an attractive fixture, IMO, and Bamford has delivered so far - no reason to take him out yet.

          2. Stoichkov#8
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            If you picked Foden than stick for at least few more games cuz this is that kind of pick where you may get 1-2 points in 2 games and haul in third one.
            Maupay looks like really nice pick esp with pens so B if rest of the team is fine.

          3. Africa United
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            A
            Hold on B Bamford may score he's at home in the end

        12. ResultatFar
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          How's it looking, used my 2 fts last night:

          Martinez (Foster)
          Saiss - James - Justin (C. Taylor - Mitchell)
          Grealish - KDB - Salah - Rodriguez (Burke)
          Kane - Maupay - Jimenez

          Anything to improve?

          1. JBG
            • 2 Years

            Looks good but, James and Justin not nailed.

        13. balint84
          • 4 Years

          What do you expect from Watkins? from Rodrigo?

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Watkins will be a solid pick, looking at our fixtures from GW6 onwards.

            Rodrigo looked excellent too, but I still don't think he's nailed on.

        14. JBG
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Ousmane Dembele apparently joining MU. Could really do with a different CB than Maguire. Would even start Smalling with Bailly or Lindelof against Newcastle.

          1. Klaren
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Maguire is the best CB we have. He might not be playing very well but still better than Lindelof and especially Bailly.

        15. Indpush
          • 2 Years

          May I get some educated thoughts on this please?

          Aurier vs Reguilon on a WC and why?

          Reguilon is noted to be very attacking?

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Reguilon, cause Aurier won't start much once Doherty is fit.

            He's also very good.

          2. JBG
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Reguilon, for reasons stated above.

          3. Indpush

            • 8 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Reguilon will start most games, Davies will take some time too though, so i d have a backup playing def. Aurier showed quality but is not consistent at all, i believe he ll share time with Doherty during the heavy schedule

            1. Indpush

            Definitely Reguilon of those two. I’m between him and Semedo for my next transfer in

            Stick. City can do some damage to Arsenal, we will probably see a different City after the IB break.

          Comparing of Son and Watkins (14.9m) versus Kane and Grealish (17.6m), which duo looks the best?

          The money saved with Son and Watkins, can be used second premium def in or moves a podence up to a Barnes/JRob, or is the extra for Kane and Jack worth it due to pens

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I don't think Jack is on pens.

            Son not optional for me at that price so Son + Watkins.

            1. cravencottage
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Who is on penalties for Villa? Im considering Grealish, and kind of assumed it would be him.

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Grealish has taken one penalty for Villa and he missed it.

                Watkins has missed 3 of his last 4 (trusting transfrmarkt stats...)

                So I think it might be Barkley. Not sure though.

                1. Mr. O'Connell
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Barkley aint much better. Remember him grabbing the ball off someone at Chelsea and blasting it at the bar in the Champs League.

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    True. But he did score two pens for Everton back in the day. He's not lacking for confidence that's for sure...

          2. Indpush
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I prefer Son and Watkins especially knowing what you will do with the difference.

            I have all four though.
