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.

    Are these good moves or any you would change?

    Rashford - Foden - Podence ➡️ Son - JRod - Jorginho

    Also considering Digne ➡️ Chilwell

    1. @FPLMason
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Not a fan of Jorginho to be fair as an FPL asset. Bringing in Son makes a lot of sense, so that would definitely be valuable.

      1. Nunoooooooooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Yeah need to free up funds hence the Jorg move. On pens though so not a bad 5th mid imo...

        1. @FPLMason
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          As a 5th mid, he'd be alright to own. Unsure if he's worth losing a Chelsea spot to long term. If the Chelsea attacking lot get going, you don't want to spend a transfer on Jorginho.

      Have it on good authority that Podence and Foden will get 20 point hauls next week

        Sure thing. Sold them both for -8.

    Scores needed after hits for GWs 1-4 are 39,34.29 and 32 in that order.
    Code is 48n69x

    Up to 6% out this GW.

      I’m allready on -8 this GW.

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        At least 20 will be -12 or more.

  3. DannyDrinkVodka

    Unbelievably bad start, I’ve already used my WC, transferred Son out twice before his hauls and gambled and lost on Sterling over Salah.

    Now I’ve taken the third hit of the season to dump Werner and bring Son back in.......top 100k would be amazing this year

    Martinez Forster
    TAA Saiss James Lamptey Mitchell
    Sterling KDB Son Barnes Foden
    DCL Maupay Watkins

    0.3 ITB What are my priorities? Bringing Salah back in for one of the City mids and getting JRod for Barnes while dumping Foden?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      James out soon.
      Looks like a decent attacker benched each GW too.

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Cheers, I don’t mind benching Foden this week as I doubt he is going to start at Arsenal......ideally I would bring Chillwell in for James but I have too many fires to put out before I get to that

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I’m on 3.2m OR. My goal is top 1k.....

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I feel your pain, I’m 3.1m OR and this two week international break could not come at a worse time. Every single decision I have made so far has cost me lots of points 🙂

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That team is well setup. Just be patient. Keep making good decisions and the results should turn.

      No JRod, start again.
      Of course it's strong on a WC.

    I'm sitting on this for after the international break. 1FT and 0.4 itb :
    McCarthy (che)
    TAA (eve) - Mitchell (BHA) - Saiss (lee)
    KDB (ARS) - Salah (eve) - Fernandes (new) - Pereria (BUR)
    DCL (LIV) - Mitro (shu) - Jimi (lee)

    Steer - Bissouma - Lascelles - Johnson

    On paper, it doesn't look that bad at all, but can't help wanting the likes of Bamford/Wilson/Grealish/Chilwell and tempted to WC. Any thoughts?

    A) WC
    B) Stick
    C) Make 2/3 changes for -4/-8

    1. TorresMagic™

      If you want the penalty mid trio, it's a bit tricky unless downgrading TAA/Mitro.

    Mini-leagues Update after Gameweek 4:

    Shahen Withana is the new leader of our open-to-all Fantasy Football Scout mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/111864/standings/c) (code: 5u05vz) and is 39th overall after captaining Harry Kane for a GW4 score of 108. He has only used one chip so far, triple captaining Mo Salah in GW1. This is his fourth FPL season and he is one point ahead of Suthikiat Boonpensilp who has not yet used any chips but scored 121 in GW4 thanks to double-digit returns from Son, Rodriguez, Kane, Wilson, Saint-Maximin and captain Salah. This is Suthikiat’s fifth FPL season, finishing 331st in 2018/19.

    Shahen is also top of our FFS Community Members mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/584/standings/c). This is open to anyone with an FFS account, and the code is shown in the Scout Leagues widget if you have signed in as well as on the Members home page.

    Three managers (Tim Hill, Ville Tuominen and Aleksander Vage Nilsen) in League 1 of the FFS Head-to-Head leagues (https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/head-to-head-leagues/) have won their first four matches, and Tim Hill is still the highest ranked of these, now up to 65,705th overall.
    The Head-to-Head GW4 results and GW5 fixtures will be included in TopMarx’s next Best of the Community and Complete Guide articles.

    The safety score for GW4 in TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/33020/standings/c) (code: 48n69x) was 32, with 188 managers eliminated. New joiners must have passed all previous safety scores (https://torresmagic.webs.com/lmsupdate.htm).

    Last year’s winner, Will Timbers (TopMarx), has taken the lead in the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/581/standings/c) and is 256k overall. This is his 11th FPL season and he has had two previous top 5k finishes, the better of which was 2,774th last season. He is now one point ahead of last week’s leader Lee Cowan (Granville) who unfortunately took a four point hit to replace Watkins (19) and Rodriguez (18) with Jimenez (2) and Soucek (3). Ouch!

    Christos Tsaras Sui (FPL Greece) still tops the Fantasy Football Scout Network mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/693919/standings/c) but has slipped to 13,881st overall.

    Elias Kharma is the new leader of my Top 10k Any Season mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/348/standings/c) (code: 8kcvzq), which is for teams that have finished the season in the top 10,000 at least once. He is 3,998th overall and is in his tenth FPL season with two previous top 10k finishes.

    Sven Ove Berg is the new leader of PDM’s Top 1k ANY season mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/40728/standings/c) (code: 2agvvx) and is 20,251st overall. This is his 11th FPL season with five top 10k finishes, the best of which was 340th in 2014/15.

    Arkadi Pinachyan comes straight in at number one in my Multiple Top 10k Finishes mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/473582/standings/c) (code: 8t42p6) for teams with two or more top 10,000 finishes. He is 154k overall, in his 14th FPL season with two previous top 10k finishes, the best of which was 382nd in 2016/17 and has a four point lead over last week’s leader, Emil Gustafsson.

    Stephen Brogan is the new leader of Chaballer’s Top 1k Hall of Fame mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/74508/standings/c) (code: mr8dyh) and is 27,037th overall. He is 899th in our FFS Career Hall of Fame and has been playing since at least 2006 with a best previous finish of 1,040th in 2015/16. In second place, one point behind, is Fabio Borges, our Hall of Fame number one.

    2017/18 FPL Champion Yusuf Sheikh is still top of Simon March’s FPL Champions League (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1367/standings/c) but has slipped to 140k overall.

    Sng Jungyang is the new leader of Skooldaze’s FPL Vets 2006 or before mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/440874/standings/c) and is 179k overall. His best previous finish was 3,300th in 2018/19 and he is now ten points ahead of last week’s leader, Baz Sahathevan.

    Md Masud Parves is the new leader of Greyhead’s The Next Great and The Good mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/143783/standings/c) and 6,628th overall. This is his third FPL season.

      Just wanted to give a big thank you to the FFScout community over here and on Twitter as individuals are quite interactive, always up for a discussion and conversations are always informative.
      Been away for the last two years due to life obligations, but happy to be back :).

        Makes sense!

  12. adased
    • 5 Years

    Should I sell Doherty for someone? Or should I sell Townsend for Barkley? I'm not really sure how pivotal these moves are so saving might be a better option instead

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Don't know your defence but Doherty could go for free. Could save otherwise.

      1. adased
        • 5 Years

        I've a FT, Doherty to a leicester defender sounds sweet (I own none)

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          After that loss and leaking goals, not sure I'd go there.

          1. adased
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Oof true and they're against Villa

            Maybe I'd save and see how it goes since I made enough bank off my other players that I don't mind price changes

  13. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 6 Years

    Pick one:

    A) Wilson
    B) Ollie
    C) Maupay

    1. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      It’s close........I suppose Wilson edges it due to being on pens and favourable fixtures......but who knows? They’re all good options......I have both B and C

    2. liverpool01
      • 2 Years

      C

  14. potatoace

    Haven't really watched Wilson yet, but he seems to be on point.

    Would you consider him over
    Jimi or Ings or DCL right now?

    1. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Maybe over Jimi, probably not over DCL or Ings

      Nope. No interest in Wilson when he has MUN wol EVE in the next 3. He'll most likely blank all of those.

      I'd like to point out this tweet by Big Man Bakar https://twitter.com/BigManBakar/status/1312657512483762176?s=19.
      I'm also a current Wilson owner as things stand. Have had him since GW1.

      very similar to what I'm wildcarding to. Its the template this week.

      I think you could hold on. Have you made transfers this week ?

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I done Havertz to Son as I read Son was doing Rehab in London during the IB.I was considering Podence and Jimenez to Son and Antonio for a hit but I only just brought those two in.

    4. MESSINHO
      • 4 Years

      Completely same as mine.

      I'm contemplating between KdB + Grealish + Brewster vs. Kane + Pulisic + Bissouma tho.

  18. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Tempted by Adams —> Watkins -4. Very sick of owning him at this point

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Not for a hit

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Why not? I expect Watkins to outscore Adams by more than 4 points over the next few

      Thinking about using WC. Will the double gameweeks for the four blank teams be after second wc?

      Any educated guesses on how covid situation will be this season in Pl. Just a few players missing the odd games like so far, or will squads soon be in quarantine and games postponed?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years

        2nd WC fro GW 16 I think. Crellin thinks doubles could be GW 18 and/or 19.

                    Could be a while, because they have been announcing fixture times quite late. (octobers were just announced)

              Both good. Just get the one that fits your team structure best.

              • 4 Years

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                It’s not a WC team.
                2 weeks until next game. If he’s out. Then I’ll have Ayling standing in.

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Can’t play 2 at the back. So unfortunately Brewster will be back up.

              2. wulfranian
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                I thought he was Webster for some reason.*

                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                I may play Ayling ahead if Coleman though.

            4. TheBabyfacedAssassin
              • 10 Years

              Looks good, midfield perfect. Coleman a doubt? Despite 7-2 thrashing worried about no pool def?

              1. The 12th Man
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Always. It’s a risk.

            Foden + Doherty -> Son + Dallas for - 4?

            Yay or nay?

            Only thing putting me off this is that I brought Foden in for a - 4 last week...

            1. RealSocialDads
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              An alternative is Foden + Mitro -> Son + Brewster

            A word to the wise on how not to play this game.

            Nyland McCarthy
            Mitchell Justin TAA Vinagre Ayling
            Son KDB Salah Soucek Stephens
            DCL Vardy Wilson

            While that team looks pretty good on paper, I am sitting at 1.5m OR with a team value of 100.0m.

            Stay away from that trap door, cause there's something down there.
            Don't you open that trap door, you're a fool if you dare.

            1. RealSocialDads

            Southampton defence tactics, talk to me.

            They have kept back to back clean sheets vs Burnley and West Brom. I caught the second half of the Burnley game and it was as much down to Burnley being poor as Southampton being solid. Although they did look a little tighter. I haven’t seen any of the game against West Brom.

            I’m not interested in buying their defensive assets but I am interested in attacking assets against them. So the question I have is, have Southampton made tactical changes to shore up their defence and have they started defending a little deeper, or is it just a case that they have played the same way (high line and pressing) and were just up against two poor teams and therefore the clean sheets came easily?

            1. wulfranian
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Poor performances from Burnley and WBrom imo.

                Did you watch the games? We’re there any tactical changes to Southamptons defensive setup?

              2. Joey Tribbiani
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Yep. Saw the whole Burnley game and half looked at the West Brom while watching other game.

              Would you do Barnes or Foden out for Grealish for a -4?
              Or stick?

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                I'd keep Barnes

                Foden to Grealish is a an upgrade for sure
