Scout Notes

A return to form for Man United’s FPL assets or a papering over cracks?

Newcastle United 1-4 Manchester United

  • Goals: Luke Shaw (£4.9m) own goal | Harry Maguire (£5.4m), Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m), Marcus Rashford (£9.5m)
  • Assists: Juan Mata (£5.9m), Fernandes, Rashford x2
  • Bonus: Fernandes x3 Rashford x2 Karl Darlow (£5.0m) x1

Manchester United began the long climb back to credibility with a deserved, if not entirely convincing, win over Newcastle.

The game was a surprisingly entertaining affair considering visiting manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could have set up his side simply to avoid another 6-1 Spursageddon, while his opposite number, Steve Bruce, has ‘stay in the game and try and nick a goal’ spliced into his footballing DNA.

Even so, most of the goals came late, with the visitors only taking the lead in the 86th minute of a match they dominated in terms of attempts (28 v 7) while never completely negating Newcastle’s own attacking threat.

But the 4-1 victory did involve decent returns for all three of the winning side’s most popular Fantasy Premier League (FPL) assets and included more reminders that owning Red Devils defenders is, currently, a foolish enterprise.

Fernandes To The Fore

By far the most-owned FPL star on the pitch was Man United’s Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m), and his 21% ownership walked away with a tidy 11-point haul that could have been so much better.

The midfielder finished off a superb team move to make the score 2-1, finding the net from an acute angle courtesy of a Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) assist.

That made it three goals in as many Gameweeks for Fernandes, but he also missed his first penalty in England (at the 11th attempt) thanks to a save from the brilliant Karl Darlow (£5.0m) and was denied an earlier goal via VAR.

Some of that pain was offset by an assist for Rashford’s last-gasp goal and the maximum bonus award and his 31 points for the season, from just four matches, puts him in the top 10 for FPL midfielders. Of the United players, only Rashford comes close to such a lofty position, which underlines how vital Fernandes is to the side.

Even with Chelsea and Arsenal up next, more FPL managers are slowly coming round to buying him in – he’s currently just inside the top 15 for Gameweek 6 purchases – as he continues to show last year’s explosive entrance into English football was not a fluke.

Rashford Revival

.

Solskjaer made five changes from the side thrashed by Spurs, among them the benching of Paul Pogba (£7.9m) and Daniel James (£6.4m) being handed a rare start.

But the key decision involved who would replace Anthony Martial (£8.8m), suspended for three matches after his dismissal against Tottenham, up front.

One candidate, Mason Greenwood (£7.3m), didn’t even make the squad, an omission the manager explained post-match.

Mason wasn’t fit to play, so we had to leave him out. We hope he will recover quickly.

That meant Rashford, an FPL midfielder this season, stepped up. And he delivered.

A goal, two assists – he also set up Aaron Wan-Bissaka‘s (£5.4m) first-ever senior strike – and two bonus points helped him to a double-digit haul enjoyed by just 5.8% of FPL bosses.

The fact that only two of his team-mates – Fernandes and Wan-Bissaka – are owned by more managers shows just how little Fantasy faith Solskjaer’s side is inspiring.

The team’s defensive frailties are plain to see, but so is their attacking intent – their 57 attempts this season is not far behind the likes of Everton (64) and Chelsea (65), only from four games, not five.

Cracks, Meet Paper

Wan-Bissaka’s surprise goal helped hand his owners a very welcome eight points, while Harry Maguire (£5.4m) ended a trying week or ten with the same haul thanks to his equaliser, from a Juan Mata (£5.9m) corner, in the first half.

Solskjaer made all the right post-match noises about Maguire’s character, while his Wan-Bissaka comments played up the full-back’s attacking threat.

It was a cross! No, he was due his goal. We wanted him higher up the pitch, making runs in behind. It was great for him.

But anyone seriously thinking of buying into United’s defence should think again.

The backline is currently shipping three goals a game on average and even managed to make Newcastle’s toothless attack look threatening.

The Magpies went into the match having had only eight shots on target across their first four games. They had four against Man United and it took a couple of great saves from David de Gea (£5.5m) to deny Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.3m) and then Callum Wilson (£6.5m).

Yes, the goal the visitors did concede – after just two minutes – was unlucky, Luke Shaw (£4.9m) deflecting an Emil Krafth (£4.4m) cross over de Gea and in.

But a side allowing 14 big chances this season – for context, Newcastle have conceded eight from a game more – clearly lacks balance, whatever Solskjaer might have claimed following Saturday’s win.

We have so many games coming up and you pick a team that you think is going to get a result in that game. You look at the opposition and you look at yourself and what is the best balance and I thought we found the right one today.

Darlow Blow

Fernandes and Rashford took most of the plaudits (and bonus), but the true hero on Tyneside was home keeper Darlow, who produced a string of fine saves as well as that penalty stop.

A single bonus award meant he limped off with eight points and a knock picked up following a clash with Rashford.

One clean sheet, a penalty save and 27 other stops this season – no keeper has made more – has taken him to the top of FPL’s scoring chart for goalkeepers.

But boss Bruce is not entirely sure he’ll be back for a Gameweek 6 trip to Wolves.

He’s taken a hell of a blow. We hope that he’s not too bad, but it’s one of those difficult ones to assess straight away. Until we see the scans and how he is, then we won’t really know, but it’s fair to say that he’s very sore.

Martin Dubravka (£4.9m) is possibly out until December with a heel issue, meaning Newcastle could be down to the bare bones in goal, with Mark Gillespie (£4.5m) the next in line for a start.

Not that any Magpies goalkeeper is likely to be the choice of many FPL managers – no team has allowed more shots (86) or attempts on target (36) than Bruce’s men.


Newcastle United XI (4-5-1): Darlow; Krafth, Fernandez, Lascelles, Lewis; Hayden (Schar 49′), Shelvey, Hendrick (Almiron 88′), Saint-Maximin, Joelinton (Fraser 73′); Wilson. 

Manchester United XI (4-3-3): de Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred (Pogba 69′), Mata (Matic 90′); Bruno Fernandes, James (van de Beek 76′), Rashford.

    WC thoughts?

    What defences should I look at? Attack is settled.

    Martinez
    Chillwell / Ayling / Ward / Target / 3.9
    Mo / Raz / Son / Hames / Soupcheck
    Kane / DCL / Brewster

    Targett or Dallas? Targett was yesterday on some set pieces, but Dallas is more attacking...

    1. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Think Dallas will def get more attacking returns and prob better long term but targett has 3 decent home fixtures in the next 4. So for now target targett.

    2. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Dallas for me

  3. Manumana

    Barkley looking like a good option for 5.9 ?

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I don’t think so...

    2. Yankee Toffee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Mos def. The fixtures look good as well.

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

    What are WCers doing in terms of Liverpool defence.

    Robbo has been getting more penalty area touches than TAA and us getting further up the pitch generally.

    TAA is always a threat from a set pieces though.

    Or we could go with neither given VVD and Allison are out, but it feels like a huge risk.

    1. Samir16
        1 month, 12 days ago

        im not on a wildcard but im considering moving trent out of my defense. alisson vvd out as you pointed plus the next 6 fixtures contain games against city, west ham, leicester, wolves.

      • Bavarian
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Robbo essential

      • FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I took both out on WC before gw5.
        Their defense is not good. Vvd gone and Allison gone. But they will keep getting attacking returns here and there. For me the price is too high for now.
        Robbo got an assist yday and taa would have scored the free kick if not for a great save from Pickford.

      • Kloppen Schloppen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Removed them so can afford more in attack. Gone for Chilwell though as potentially similiar end of sesaon points for cheaper

      • Peteski29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Removed TAA on WC and brought Robbo in

    2. Samir16
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Martinez,McCarthy
        TAA, Chilwell, Saiss, Castagne, Mitchell
        Rodriguez, Son, Salah, Klich, Romeu
        Maupay, Werner, DCL

        1FT, 1mil itb

        since alisson out injured and next 6 fixtures contains match ups against west ham, city, leicester, wolves. im considering moving out TAA for a 4mil defender to sit on bench and use up the funds for a maupay to kane switch.

        Thoughts?

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Hold TAA for SHU/WHU and hold Maupay this week. Save FT.

          1. Samir16
              1 month, 12 days ago

              thats exactly what i thought but dont want to miss out on more kane points considering their next 3 fixtures

              1. Jinswick
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Yeah, can't have them all though and your front 3 have good fixtures/are in form also. Perhaps TAA/Maupay -> x/Kane for free next week I reckon.

                1. Samir16
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    ok cool yeah makes sense. last week someone with a few seasons under their belt advised me against removing werner with a SOU fixture coming up and it paid off. lets hope trent gets a couple goal involvements and clean sheets then 🙂

            • FantasyHero
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 12 days ago

              Take taa out for a playing defender as mitchell might lose his place. And werner to kane if anything and not maupay. Werner just had 1 good gw.

              1. Samir16
                  1 month, 12 days ago

                  so a FT plus 4 point hit for
                  taa for probably a villa starting defender (given their fixtures) and
                  werner to kane
                  interesting take haven't considered this yet. cheers

                  1. FantasyHero
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    Thats if you really wanna make a change.
                    I would simply carry over transfer tho

                    1. Samir16
                        1 month, 12 days ago

                        okay thanks tho for the different perspective hadn't considered that

              2. slavkob
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 12 days ago

                Should I go Ryan to Martinez for a hit? I know Ryan got WBA next but if Martinez jumps in price I won't be able to afford it.

                1. Samir16
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    considering that he got his 3rd clean sheet and given their easy fixture list for the next 8-9 gameweeks, his price is definitely going to go up and yeah its probably smart to get him in right now

                  • Jinswick
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years
                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    Try not to use FTs on keepers, and definitely don't take a -4 for one, especially when your keeper already has the best fixture this week.

                    1. Samir16
                        1 month, 12 days ago

                        ok yeah thats the difference between an answer from someone whos played 10 seasons vs me playing my first season.
                        damn thats solid advice, never thought about it that way. cheers

                    2. Amey
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      Not the GW to sell Ryan.
                      I'd rather get Konsa/Mings/Targett if you want to have a bite at Villa Defense

                  • Jinswick

                    1 month, 12 days ago

                    Best move here fellas?

                    A) Virgil -> Digne/Chilwell/Reguilon/Saiss
                    B) A + Antonio -> Maupay (-4)
                    C) Virgil & Antonio -> Robbo & Watkins (-4)

                    McCarthy
                    TAA, VVD*, Bellerin
                    Salah, Son, Foden, Barkley
                    Kane, Jimenez, Antonio*

                    Steer, Bissouma, Holding, Mitchell
                    Bank 0.3m, 1FT

                    1. Samir16
                        1 month, 12 days ago

                        looking to move antonio cuz of the injury? probably wait on an update about that since he is in decent form yeah. but anyways if hes injured option B and from those defenders probably choose chilwell

                            great team based on form. good to have salah and kane in their if needed to swap for premium mid/forward. defense has no direct swap to bring in trent/robbo if needed later in the season but other than that, great team.

                              This GW was good for people who took hits (high scoring)

                              Looking at fixtures next GW, it looks same. some juicy fixtures on the plate.

                              Pool - SHU
                              Spurs - Burnley
                              BHA - WBA
                              Villa - Leeds

                                Pool vs SHU is going to be a blowout

                              1 FT, 0 ITB. Any changes? The only temptation i have right now is Pulisic to Rodriguez.

                              Martinez
                              TAA Saiss Lamptey

                                  you have chilwell on the bench? thats a lot of value on the bench but I'm assuming thats the plan only for the coming gameweek. would say save the FT, pulisic looked good last game in terms of creating chances.

                                    Yeah, just 1 game only on bench for Chilwell. Think they’ll concede away at Man Utd and TAA (SHU), Saiss (NEW) & Lamptey (WBA) all have great fixtures.

                                  A. Pulisic
                                  B. Jimenez

                                    Tough one. Jimenez this week but Pulisic over next 3/4 weeks.

                                  Time to look at Mane, surely? 7.5% ownership, 4G in 4M, top for xG and Mins/xG, 2nd for xGA of all midfielders with Sheffield United (H), West Ham (H), and Leicester (H) in the next 4. Looks like an outstanding option right now.

                                      Thinking the exact same. Just wish I had Salah too.

                                      yeah this would be the stretch to have triple pool if they had alisson fit but attackers are still a great pick. I've got salah in the team and don't think its worth the FT to swap to mane

                                        I'm on Salah Taa Robbo

                                        Will stay for as long as i can then see. Salah Mane double up is a great option. But I'll always pick wrong © so not for me 😀

                                        They'll struggle, though better for Salah/mane as they'll score more too

                                      Considering I took a -8, being on the tiniest of green arrow with triple Wolves still to play feels good.

                                          Should i make any changes? Thinking of swapping jimenez for kane, if he still did not deliver.

                                            Do the swap to kane even if he scores 3, its a better longterm move, kane is a goalmachine and is assisting to put a cherry on top this season, with bale back hes bound to haul every other week

                                            I think if jimi blanks then that’s a decent aggressive move to make but try to wait until after spurs have played on Thursday to negate any risk to Kane if possible

                                            I like the move, but like above I'd wait until later in the week to make it

                                              For me i would not go double for defence. If you have martinez at goal then go for lamptey. Vice versa

                                            Vardy & Wilson -> Kane & Batshuayi or Bamford for -4

                                            Yes or No ?

                                            Spurs & Palace fixtures are too good to ignored. Vardy is still 50:50 with his injury while Newcastle’s fixture is getting in the tough period.

                                            My main issues are kdb klich & Taylor
                                            I can sell kdb & klich & bench Taylor for Mitchell
                                            Or sell kdb & Taylor & keep klich for another GW
