Scout Notes

The Aston Villa FPL assets who impressed in rout of Alisson-less Liverpool

Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool

  • Goals: Ollie Watkins (£5.9m) x3, Jack Grealish (£7.0m) x2, John McGinn (£5.5m), Ross Barkley (£5.9m) | Mohamed Salah (£12.2m) x2
  • Assists: Grealish x3, McGinn, Trezeguet (£5.5m), Watkins | Roberto Firmino (£9.4m)
  • Bonus: Grealish x3, Watkins x2, Salah x1

Aston Villa put Liverpool to the sword with a display of pace and verve entirely in keeping with this increasingly maverick season.

A hat-trick for Ollie Watkins (£5.9m) grabbed the headlines, but it was the performance of Villa skipper Jack Grealish (£7.0m) that caught the Fantasy eye.

Two goals, three assists, maximum bonus and 24 points was the stuff of legend for his (at the time) 9.9% Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership and the stuff of nightmares for the 56,000 or so managers who’ve sold him on over the past two Gameweeks.

That lack of faith has cost them 32 points all in. A short-term schedule involving both Leicester and Arsenal is clearly not dissuading people now – Grealish’s ownership is close to 12% and he’s in the top ten for Gameweek 5 transfers-in.

Watkins (2.3%), who had to make do with just the 19 points, is another being snapped up and he set the ball rolling against Liverpool with an early goal.

Those managers still clinging to the ‘two Liverpool at the back’ formula would have been twitchy when news came through that Alisson (£6.0m) had injured his shoulder in training, meaning a start for the rather less reliable Adrian (£4.5m) in the Reds goal.

And they only had to wait until the fourth minute for their fears to be realised when the Spaniard’s slack pass to Joe Gomez (£5.4m) was intercepted by Grealish, who set up the unmarked Watkins to finish with ease.

It was the striker’s first Premier League goal in 184 minutes of action. His second came just 18 minutes later when he was released by Grealish down the left, cut back inside and hit a shot across Adrian and in at the far post.

In between those goals came a golden chance – wasted – for Villa debutant Ross Barkley (£5.9m), two saves by Emiliano Martinez (£4.6m) from Roberto Firmino (£9.4m) and a growing sense that Liverpool were going to score from a move down the left.

They did just that in the 33rd minute when Andy Robertson (£7.0m) and Diogo Jota (£6.3m) – in for the ill Sadio Mane (£11.9m) – combined well on that flank, the ball was moved inside and finally fell to Mohamed Salah (£12.2m), who finished clinically.

Salah’s goal sparked brief hopes of a Liverpool comeback, which lasted precisely two minutes before a deflected John McGinn (£5.5m) shot made it 3-1. The Egyptian scored again after the break, with an assist from Firmino, to suggest another rally might happen. It took all of six minutes for Villa to snuff that out for a second time.

But while Salah’s 13 points was the only decent FPL haul to be had from Jurgen Klopp’s men on the night, arguably the major talking point was the lopsided nature of the champions’ attack.

As can be seen in the Premium Members Area, the touch heatmap for Liverpool shows swathes of possession down their left flank and hardly anything of note down the right.

That meant a sorry night for FPL’s most-owned defender, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m and 42.1%), who was kept to very occasional forays forward by the attacking presence of Grealish and Watkins.

On the opposite side, Robertson was considerably more advanced and dovetailed well with Jota all game. If that’s a sign of the times, it will be the cheaper Scot – currently owned by just 14.8% – who will find his way into more FPL teams.

But on the evidence of last night, selling Liverpool defenders will be the way forward, as Klopp acknowledged post-match:

Tonight, pretty much everybody made massive mistakes around the goals. The first one was obviously Adrian; that was a big mistake, yes, but the reaction on the goal was an even bigger mistake, how we reacted.

Yes, the first goal was not cool, of course. But apart from that, I don’t think he had anything to do with all the other goals pretty much. We didn’t help him tonight, let me say it like this, or we even did the opposite.

The coach also had an update on the health of the 13.2%-owned Allison:

No chance to play against Everton. We don’t know exactly. Let me say, it could have been worse with that injury, that’s for sure. We were slightly lucky but it’s not that he can play against Everton. I don’t want to put a time frame on it, but four weeks could be possible, six weeks is maybe more likely, but I don’t know.

Not that Liverpool with the Brazilian stopper in the side are anywhere near the defensive levels of last season either, but overall now they’ve kept one clean sheet in four matches and shipped 11 goals, which only West Brom (13) can ‘better’.

The Merseyside derby – against the current league leaders, don’t forget – and a Gameweek 8 trip to Manchester City mean that Liverpool will need to bounce back from the Villa debacle sharpish. But an otherwise favourable schedule through to early next year means there’s no need to panic just yet.

That, however, is enough about the Reds, because the night belonged to Villa.

Dean Smith’s side have now played three, won three in the league and some smart work in the transfer market has stabilised a previously giddy defence while adding pace and bite higher up the pitch.

No longer is Grealish the one and only attacking attraction, although he was superb on Sunday night, laying on a further assist for Barkley, whose shot was deflected, and then scoring twice himself, once with a deflected shot of his own and the other a calm finish when sent clean through by McGinn’s sweet pass.

That meant the latter brought in his second straight double-digit haul – budget returns enjoyed by just 0.8% of managers.

In amongst all that carnage, Watkins completed his hat-trick with a free header from Trezeguet’s (£5.5m) cross after Villa had sprung Liverpool’s terrible attempt at an offside trap from a free-kick.

The goal encapsulated the visitors’ defensive performance. Liverpool played a high line all night and it cost them. Time and again Villa broke at pace and exploited the acres of space in behind a Reds side that threw caution to the wind in their desperate desire to get back into the game.

That led to the home team having a chunky 11 attempts on target – they’d managed seven across their first two matches – which was a fact not lost on Smith.

The performance was outstanding from start to finish. We created an awful lot of chances against an exceptional defence and team.

Liverpool’s defence was, in truth, anything but exceptional, and the fact that three goals came via deflections should temper Villa fans’ (and Fantasy managers’) reactions to the match as well. 

Smith’s side are not going to be scoring like this again any time soon and future opponents are likely to sit deeper to negate their pace and threat on the break. But the side – enhanced further by Barkley – are full of attacking threat at present and their fixture list is passable now and set fair from Gameweeks 9 through to 15.

Then again, on the evidence of last night, form could very well trump fixtures for this Villa outfit anyway.

Time will tell, but their assets are now very much on the radar to further complicate a season shaping up to be like no other, in both real and fantasy life.


Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Martínez; Cash (El Mohamady 80′), Konsa, Mings, Targett; McGinn, Luiz (Nakamba 80′), Trézéguet (Traoré 87′); Barkley, Watkins, Grealish. 

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Adrián; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez (Jones 61′), van Dijk, Robertson; Keita (Minamino 45′), Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino (Milner 68′), Jota.

    Cavani is bargain.

    1. Kun Tozser
      • 5 Years

      Won’t be on pens bet he doesn’t get more than 6 goals all season

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        15 league goals easily.

      Quite interested to see how he goes, good pedigree but well past his best and has played very little football.
      Should start with martial out too

    3. The Mandalorian

      Yes 5 years ago lol he hasn't played football since March

      1. Niho992

        Bookmarked.

    4. Camzy

      I kind of agree actually.

      I've always rated Cavani. He's not like Falcao despite their somewhat similar profile. He is a work horse and gets loads of chances because of that.

      Loads of ManU fans are upset at thhe signing and maybe financially it doesn't make too much sense, but Cavani is a fantastic forward, and he might, might actually be good.

      8.0m for a forward is certainly not unreasonable.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Agree on all points

      2. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Great point.

      3. skodaole2
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I agree with all the points raised, but MUN management again proved amateur. If they wanted to bring in Cavani they could have done it at least one month ago, today he d be ready to start a game. Now he ll probably start on the bench after building fitness for weeks. Can’t see his FPL value above Ings, Jimenez, Watkins, Mitrovic, DCL but I bet he ll score goals, maybe have a good run of 2-3 games at some point and we ll all try to predict when that will be to bring him in

    5. Drizz ✅
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Falcao 2.0

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not even close.

  3. JonSnow

    On WC and tossing up going no city cover.
    A) Kane & Bissouma/ASM
    A) KDB & Brewster

    My other forwards are (Maupay & DCL)
    I already have son and no other City.
    Could potentially bring in Aguero for Kane if it turns pear shaped and Kun stays fit.

  4. Vazza
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Would you play

      A. Kane and Brewster
      B. Jimenez and Maupay

      1. JonSnow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Tough but A if you plan on capping him otherwise B

      2. Miguel Sanchez

        B

    • FF Dirtbag
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      How would you fill the 2 spaces?
      A) Fernandes and Brewster (for a 3-5-2)

      B) Kane and a 4.5 mill mid (for a 3-4-3)

      C) another 15 mill combo

      Martinez Forster
      Chilwell Reguillon Saiss KWP Mitchell
      Salah *** Son Rodriguez Grealish
      DCL Ings ***

    • Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years

      Barnes & Adams to Son & Watkins for free tonight before price changes? Won't be priced out but will lose 0.4 easily! Yay or Nay?

      1. FF Dirtbag
        • 9 Years

      Hi guys,

      Any recommended transfers for this week? Thinking might have to get Werner out?

      Martinez
      Digne / Saiss / Robbo
      Salah / Barnes / De Bruyne / Rodriquez / Podence
      Werner/ DCL

      Nyland / Mitchell / Lamptey / Brewster. 0.1 mil ITB

      Cheers lads

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Werner to anyone is pretty much an upgrade

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Cavani and Telles “OTW” right now for me, nothing more

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Might aswell put Partey and Bale too

        1. JonSnow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          If bale can stay fit, he could rack up the points

    • The Fantasy Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I’m seeing a lot of teams selling or not including KdB because of concerns he is too deep or City not firing on all cylinders. Didn’t we go through this a million times last season?

      1. Drizz ✅
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Team value will be lost nothing we can do

      2. Oooo Matron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He could crack back into top form with Aguero or Jesus back, but City look a litte lacklustre with hard fixtures and Champions League ahead.

        Think there's better value in that 11.5 at the moment than KDB.

      3. mynameisq
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        We did, gonna be a lot of burnt sellers when he returns Vs arsenal but that still relies on Jesus or Kun being fit, without them KDB doesn't look his normal self as his rhythm is off. Burnt sellers is actually the theme of this season, ive lost count of the amount of times someone that has dropped in price has got decent returns

      4. FourLokoLeipzig
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He was underpriced last season though

      5. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        he is only a single transfer away, no big deal really going for players from other teams that are showing better form, fixtures & confidence at the moment ?

        City are not the same team as two years ago, Kun & Fernandinho are getting old, D Silva is gone, Foden is flakey, defence is dodgy

        1. The Fantasy Doctor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Things seem to change week on week. We are just one City thrashing and KdB haul away from everyone buying him again. Then we see the ‘why did I sell KdB before his 20 point haul at home to Arsenal’ posts.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            can’t have them all 🙂 but when players £3 or £4 mill cheaper are outscoring the likes KDB, Auba & Sterling it’s time to fill your boots 😉

    • Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Anything you'd change about this WC? Maybe Robertson over TAA for some flexibility?

      McCarthy
      TAA Semedo Chillwell
      Salah Son Grealish Rodriguez
      Kane DCL Maupay

      Subs: Anguissa, Lamperty, Mitchell

      1. JollyGoodYellows
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not keen on Semedo, push to Chilwell if you can. Otherwise as long as you're happy with no city its good.

        1. Oooo Matron
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Already got Chillwell in there! I'm thinking maybe Saiss for Wolves cover and upgrade Mitchell to a solid 4.5.

          Don't really rate Semedo but nailed on and very attacking in a defensively good team.

          1. JollyGoodYellows
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Sorry didnt see that! In that case go for Saiss and upgrade Mitchell as he may be benched when PVA comes back.

          2. Zrinkec
              1 month, 19 days ago

              We have almost same WC only i have KWP over Lamptey, Soucek over Anguissa, Zaha or Barnes i am still thinking over JROD.

          3. FourLokoLeipzig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Why aren’t you keen on Semedo?

            1. JollyGoodYellows
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I think there are better at that price E.g Regulion, Chilwell and Castagne. I think you only need one of those with other 4.5s in defence and maybe TAA/Robertson.... I'm usually proved wrong though!

              1. FourLokoLeipzig
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Thanks for the reply. I’m not keen on Chelsea defence, so looking at Semedo or Reguilon as my Davies replacement. I suspect Reguilon is the best option if nailed... but can’t see Davies being a cup-only player so a bit worried about rotation

                1. JollyGoodYellows
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  I completely agree regarding Davies and Regulion. I'm in the same dilemma that I have Davies and don't know what to do with him. Good luck whatever you decide!

                  1. FourLokoLeipzig

        What would you do here? Need Werner out but also worried about my defence. 1FT and 0.1itb

        Mccarthy (Button)
        TAA Mitchell Justin (Holding Davies)
        Salah KDB JRod Soucek (Bissouma)
        DCL Werner Ings

        1. Drizz ✅

            • 1 Year

            Really? I was thinking Werner + Bissouma > Son + Brewster (-4)?

          A is the standard boring one.

          I think B should be a Kane variant.

        Foden owners whats the plan?
        Are you giving him another week?

        I'm tempted by a -4 to Grealish for the long term but havnt watched many of city games so not sure how he looked? Thanks for your views

        1. Drizz ✅
          • 8 Years

          I dont have him but might aswell keep Foden no? No point chucking him out after 1-2 games

            thought the same when I saw this. Foden has to be a long term shout - especially without any major signings to impact his game time and the fact he has a fortnight off now?

            Give him some weeks & he will come good for owners, I'm sure.

          I'd keep Foden and the 4 points at the moment.

          He’s not been great but I’m gonna give him another week as he’s got two weeks off now so likely to start at home to Arsenal.

          Sold for grealish. Saw enough vs leeds and Leicester

        Would you wc this team?

        McCarthy
        TAA-Justin-KWP-Mitchell-Saliba
        Salah-KDB-Son-Mahrez-Stephens
        Jimenez-DCL-Brewster

        1. Drizz ✅

          Looks good to go for upcoming gw

          1. Legohair
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Thanks. Im not happy with my team atm but im 50/50 should i do wc or not.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          definitely not. Salah-KDB-Son-DCL is probably the basis of most WC teams now.

          I think your only real issue is Saliba and his perpetually tanking value.

          1. Legohair
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            If i dont do wc, then probably wait until mahrez is fit and then have some money in the bank so i can then upgrade saliba

          2. Tinkermania
            • 1 Year

            Not sure Kdb is the flavour at the moment.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Not terrible, but Mahrez and Jiminez probably could be replaced and Saliba/Justin/Mitchell all likely to be dropped soon.

          Wildcard to what?

          That team looks just fine.

        5. skodaole2
          • 8 Years

          I would save, not even FT needed here

        Best 4.5 defender looking to next five or so fixtures?

        Taylor, KWP, Targett, Dallas all look solid

        1. wulfranian
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Someone from Palace imo.

        2. Zrinkec
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Dallas for me, KWP better for future, but not easy schedule next 4-5 weeks.

            1. Fit_to_drop
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Dallas has had some amazing performances lately but very few points to show for it.

          • skodaole2
            • 8 Years

            SOU defence seems to get tighter after the Spurs game, I d get one of them

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Is it too risky going without TAA on a WC?

          1. Drizz ✅
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Seems fine but would evaluate once Alisson returns

            • 3 Years

            i prefer Robbo to TAA anyway

            Jorginho currently 5th in total midfielders ranked by points @ 5.1m

              i still think i'd perfer Soucek

            2. Drizz ✅
              • 8 Years

              Wont start every game as shown already

              1. The Train Driver

                Ffs logic.

                Foden = won't start every game, blanks the games he starts, costs more = essential.

                Jorginho = won't start every game, hauls the game he starts, cheap af = no go.

          5. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            A) Kane, Grealish, Trossard
            B) Son, Watkins, JRod

            1. Zrinkec
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Close call but B for me.

                1. dbeck
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  its what the money can do when grouping Kane and Jack vs Watkins and Son, seems a lot

                  1. Zrinkec
                      1 month, 19 days ago

                      Yeah exactly that.

                  Very hard. Probably B

                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  Kane JRod Soucek if you can, else B

                    cheers, already own Soucek, great first bench guy and waiting for fixtures to swing.

                    I guess its B, but i cant help myself being drawn towards jacks calves

                What do you think to KDB to Son for -4? I can't work out if Spurs are good or the teams they played are just bad.

                Rest of the team is

                Ryan Martinez
                TAA Saiss Taylor Mitchell Lamptey
                KDB Salah James Podence Reed
                DCL Jimenez Ings

                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 19 days ago

                  What was you FT? Don’t think KDB our for a hit is worth it.

                    The other was Wood to DCL. Think I regret this now but I would be priced out of DCL if I didn't do it.

                  Am i crazy with so expesive defense? I just dont see where i can upgrade anywhere else to better waste money?

                  Martinez - Steer
                  Robertson/Castagne/CHilwell/KWP/Mitchell
                  Son/Salah/Grealish/Zaha or Barnes still thinking, Bissouma
                  Kane/DCL/Maupay

                    1 month, 19 days ago

                    what's your read on city? that's an omission from the team but i guess one of your spurs guys can become a city guy if needed

                    1. Zrinkec
                        1 month, 19 days ago

                        Yeah exactly that, i was thinkinking about KDB but i want to see more i am scared he is playing too deep and its tough to expect so much assists like last year. For Sterling yeah just scared with that team also for now, seems like 11.5 is a lot for him i feel much more confident gambling with Zaha or Barnes and dividing money in other position. But yeah after 4 easy spurs fixtures i very well may change Kane and one midfielder for KDB or Sterling.

                          cool, dont rule out kane to aguero in 3-4 gws

                              O yeah i forgot that is also very, very possible option. i really like this team, but making me scary to have so expensive defense.

                          1 month, 19 days ago

                          Is he on penalties?

                          1. dbeck

                            1 month, 19 days ago

                            i believe so, noble their regular starter hasnt started a game and seems to be dropped. Antonio took one towards the end of last year and scored

                      So pleased with myself for removing Son, Kane and Wilson on Wildcard just before the break.

                      Nothing better than stewing on such decisions for two weeks!

                      I have two free transfers and the exact money to do Keinan Davies and Bruno to Watkins and Son. Is that a no brainer, or worth waiting and potentially saving as Bruno has Newcastle away up next?
