Scout Notes

Which of Villa’s FPL assets impressed in their win over Vardy-less Leicester?

Leicester City 0-1 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Ross Barkley (£5.9m)
  • Assists: John McGinn (£5.5m)
  • Bonus: Barkley x3, Emiliano Martinez (£4.7m) x2, Tyrone Mings (£5.1m) x1, Matty Cash (£5.0m) x1

A 91st-minute winner from Ross Barkley (£5.9m) maintained Aston Villa’s perfect start to the season as Leicester lost at home for the second straight Gameweek.

The Chelsea loanee took John McGinn‘s (£5.5m) pass and drove towards the Foxes box before hitting a low shot past Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) into the bottom corner to make it four wins on the trot for Dean Smith’s side.

In a season of drama, controversy and so many goals, Sunday night’s encounter was of the old school – tight, cagey and, at times, rather dull.

But Villa’s win and Leicester’s woes ensured there was plenty of Fantasy interest.

Choices, Choices…

Last year’s main move by many in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) was a double-up on Liverpool defenders, with a third place in people’s squads for one of the Reds’ exalted front three.

Now, there’s a growing argument that a Villa triple-up is required.

Such is their strength at present, there are Fantasy contenders across the pitch.

Emiliano Martinez (£4.7m), who brought in save and bonus points on Sunday, is the leading FPL points scorer among goalkeepers, while Tyrone Mings (£5.1m) tops the defenders’ chart.

The team also has two midfielders – Jack Grealish (£7.2m) and McGinn – and striker Ollie Watkins (£6.0m) in their respective top tens.

Barkley, with 20 points overall, is close to joining that roll of honour, with 18 of those points having come from his two Villa games, both of which he’s scored in.

The key question is whether Villa’s form is sustainable.

Manager Smith is, as you’d expect, not getting carried away:

To come here, keep a clean sheet and play as well as we did is very pleasing. It’s important we keep our feet firmly on the ground and stay humble.

But with a fine fixture list all the way through to Boxing Day, the prospects of more of the same from Villa look very strong indeed.

McGinn The Groove

How to tap into all this is good stuff is tricky.

Grealish’s 24-point haul against Liverpool meant he went into the Leicester game with double the owners and his blank on Sunday hasn’t dampened managers’ enthusiasm – he’s again in the top five for transfers-in and his price has risen as a result.

The midfielder is all boom and bust so far. Other than his monster haul against Liverpool, he’s managed one eight-pointer and two blanks and he didn’t have a single shot at the King Power Stadium.

In fact, he had a poor game by his standards, with too many wrong choices made in the final third, mostly involving him holding on to the ball for far too long.

But his overall stats for the season – 14 chances created and nine attempts – are strong enough to ensure his 21% ownership will only rise at present.

The same cannot be said of Sunday’s assister, McGinn.

Five Villa players are currently in the top 30 for Gameweek 6 purchases. The 1.5%-owned McGinn is not one of them.

And yet the midfielder has been very consistent, with three straight returns, two of which were for double-digit hauls.

He now has a goal and four assists to his name this season and only Harry Kane (£10.7m) has set up more goals (seven).

Grealish is catching the eye and hoovering up the managers. McGinn remains the differential and currently frees up £1.7m in funds as well.

As for match-winner Barkley, Smith was generous with his praise:

We have seen Ross Barkley do that enough times for Everton and Chelsea so we are pleased he did it for us. It was touch and go whether he started. He had a knock to the knee, but a great goal and a real battling performance by the whole team.

But the midfielder’s previous record of burning brightly and then producing very little has clearly scarred FPL managers as he’s barely out-performing McGinn for purchases at present.

Pick A Defender, Any Defender

As well as being the leading FPL goalkeeper in terms of points, Martinez is also the most popular, with 21.6% ownership (and rising).

But you have to scroll a long way down the defenders list to find Villa names, with Mings (6.7%) and Ezri Konsa (£4.6m and 6.1%) the first to appear, even though the team has kept a league-leading three clean sheets.

The pair also lead the way among Villa’s backline for points – 30 and 28 respectively – with Matty Cash (18 points) and Matt Targett (£4.5m and 17pts) yet to produce attacking returns.

Targett, however, had two shots against the Foxes – no Villa player had more – while Cash has created four chances this season.

In terms of attacking points, the full-backs’ time will come, you feel, and Targett’s price tag could be a key factor for many.

No Vardy, No Party

Leicester out-shot their visitors 11-10, but barely stretched Martinez, a Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) effort the toughest of the five saves he had to make.

Much of the reason for that was down to the absence, with a calf injury, of striker Jamie Vardy (£10.1m).

Leicester started the season by scoring 12 goals in their first three matches, with five of them coming from the forward.

A deep-lying West Ham foiled the Foxes in Gameweek 4, but with no Vardy on Sunday, Villa could keep a higher line and not worry about being hurt in behind by Leicester’s other strikers, Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.7m) and Islam Slimani (£5.0m), who managed just two shots between them.

Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers delivered the latest news on Vardy post-match.

Jamie will probably miss Thursday (Europa League). It’s a recurrence of a problem he’s had for a number of years with his calves. This isn’t serious, so we’re hopeful he’ll be ready for the next league game.

That will be music to the ears of his 22.5% ownership, although a trip to a defensively-improved Arsenal next week is not the fixture for forwards it was last season.

Leicester’s squad is fairly strong, which is just as well with a growing injury list for Rodgers to manage, but they are not the same threat without Vardy to lead the line and stretch defences.

Fofana Impresses

.

Another key man out injured, the 7.5%-owned Caglar Soyuncu (£5.5m), will not be returning any time soon, as Rodgers confirmed:

Caglar is more serious. The muscle has come right off the bone so he could be three months out.

His absence meant a debut for £32m Saint-Etienne signing Wesley Fofana (£5.0m), and the teenager was, generally, immaculate.

Rodgers was certainly a happy manager:

He was outstanding. Supporters will have great joy watching him. He’s got huge potential and he’ll be a big player for our future.

So while Vardy was sorely missed, Fofana ensured Soyuncu’s absence was fully covered – a welcome piece of news for the 20%+ of FPL managers hoping for future clean sheets from full-backs Timothy Castagne (£5.8m) and James Justin (£4.8m).


Leicester City XI (4-5-1): Schmeichel; Justin, Evans, Fofana, Castagne; Tielemans, Mendy (Choudhury 78′), Praet (Maddison 68′), Perez, Barnes, Iheanacho (Slimani 71′).

Aston Villa XI (4-5-1): Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Luiz, McGinn, Trezeguet (Traore 81′), Barkley, Grealish; Watkins.

    Mane Son Havertz Rodriguez (Burke)
    Jimenez DCL Maupay

    Which move would you rather do (after the midweek European games of course):

    A) Bank and roll the FT
    B) Egan > Semedo
    C) Jimenez/Havertz >> Aguero/Grealish (-4)
    D) Jimenez/Havertz/Egan >>> Kane/Grealish/Targett (-8)

    1. waldo666

      A or B, leaning to A.

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

      D would see me benching Chilwell this week and Lamptey next week

  3. Dutchboy

    Not sure whether I should do Podence > JRod for a hit..

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Grealish or differential Barkley?

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Fail

      2. Dutchboy
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        I already did Grealish this week, and have Salah and Son

      Yes

    Time to WC out of this team? Initial plan was ahead of gw8--fixtures looking really bad then--but patience doesn't seem to be paying off, especially regarding the price rises/drops.

    McCarthy, Nyland
    Trent, Saiss, Walker-Peters, Justin, Mitchell
    Salah, Son, Sterling, Soucek, Podence
    Ings, Jimenez, Davis

    1. The Suspended One

      Not worth wc

        Thanks.

  5. acesingh

    Bottomed
    TAA (c) vs SHU?
    Or
    Bruno -> Salah (c) on FT?

    1. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Shu defence looks good ... not sure Salah will score truck loads...

      Bruno vs Chelsea defence might do better

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Salah C

  6. Duffy Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Irrelevant of hits involved, is selling TAA Barnes Klich Jimenez for Targett/Konsa Son Rodriguez Maupay a good move?

    Also, would you prefer Targett or Konsa?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Maybe week 1; live in the now man

  7. Don Kloppeone

    Tonight made me slightly nervous so just checking my thinking... I was planning on saving FT but should I be using it on Branthwaite > Kilman and starting him over Dallas?

    1FT 0.5itb
    Martinez
    Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
    Salah (C), Son, Pulisic, Grealish
    Kane (v), DCL, Maupay
    (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Branthwaite)

    Cheers!

      No way

    2. Tonyawesome69

      No chance, waste of a ft

  8. slavkob
    • 3 Years

    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. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Two commandments violated there, hit for a gk and hit to avoid a price change

      1. rjcv177
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        And a hit to sell the one with better fixture lol

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I don't think that is very wise.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      The CS potential and the better GK in Martinez, surely outweighs the hit and Ryan's points?

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

        This was what I was thinking

      2. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        It’s definitely a tough one, as an early pope buyer last year I know how much those GK returns can pay off...

  9. PL Ball
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Werner - DCL - Jimenez

    Would you get rid of any of them to get Kane or Aguero?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Jimenez to Kane

    2. acesingh
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      That’s my front 3 and I’m annoyingly 0.1 short of Jiminez to Aguero

    3. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Jimmy

    4. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Had this three and sold Werner to Kane (instead of Jim)

    5. Bees4Lyf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Jimmy

  10. Ibralicious

    Best 4.5 atm

    Is it still between Dallas and KWP for most?

    1. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Dallas
      Target
      Kwp

      On this order

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Consider Targett - good CS potential with the upcoming games

    3. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Masuaku worth a shout

  11. rjcv177
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Which hit can be most profitable for the future?

    A) vinagre and Barnes to Robbo and grealish
    B) foden and Barnes to jamesR and grealish

    Thkx

  12. The Mandalorian

    Saiss or Mings guys on a wc

    1 or 2

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      I would rather go with a cheaper Villa defender like Targett or Konsa

  13. lugs
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    if i do Semedo to Kilman, i would then be able to afford jimmy to Aguero, it would leave me with no bench though if Kilman is dropped but i think it might be worth it with this attack 🙂

    Martinez
    Chilwell, Castagne, Lamptey
    Bruno, Son, Havertz, Rodriguez, Grealish
    Kane, Aguero

    Forster, Brewster, Kilman, Dunne,

    i'd currently be left with 0.1itb after that move, which gives me some breathing space to wait until the weekend to do them trades for free, gather more information, and get the Newcastle game out of the Wolves players too

    1. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Aguero is finished

      1. lugs
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        maybe, he has never let me down whenever i have owned him though

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

      Don't like that. You need at least 2 active bench players in these crazy times

      1. lugs
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        this is it, we don't know if Kilman will lose his place though, he got MOTM today so he has a good chance of keeping his place imo

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      It's certainly high-risk, but I wouldn't say it's crazy.

      1. lugs
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        benches are overrated anyway, last week i had Lamptey coming off the bench giving me 0pts lol

    4. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      That front 7 looks great. It may be more fun, high risk high reward

      1. lugs

        my thoughts exactly, cheers 🙂

    Abit of a tough one, do I transfer out:

    A) Bruno
    B) Werner

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Tough to ditch either after their respective game weeks

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Exactly this. Need to know who you plan to bring in

        1. Bees4Lyf
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Would be Werner to Kane or Bruno to Sterling

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Both tough moves to consider. I would actually just keep what you've got

    2. El Lobito 10
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Bruno could have a field day v that awful def

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

    A. TAA to a 4.5-5m defender, Jimi to Kane for a -4.
    B. Bamford to brewster, Jimi to Werner for a -4, keep TAA

    Rest of team for reference;
    Martinez, Nyland
    Cresswell, Lamptey, TAA, Mitchell, Ayling
    James, Salah, Sterling, Son, Alzate
    Bamford, Jimi, DCL

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

    Is Grealish worth the extra over Barkley?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Yes

  19. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Think am going to do the following before tonight’s price rises;

    Barnes & Jimi > J-Rod & Kane (-4)

    Then watch the European games from behind the sofa and pray my guys get through it unscathed.

    Good moves?

    Surprised Mings isn't in more WC teams great fixtures

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

      Guessing you can have Martinez for 0.4 cheaper without the double up

      1. The Mandalorian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Yes but those fixtures are unbelievable

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

          Almost 2.5m saving for Trent especially those with double Liv

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      He’s been incredible and nobody talking about it

  21. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    Martinez,
    Semedo, Saiss, lamptey,
    Son, Salah (c), Havertz, Sterling,
    Brewster, Jimmy, DCL

    4.0, James, Bissouma, Mitchell

    1FT, 1.5 ITB

    Any moves here? Scared of kane but most of my team have decent fixtures so thinking just to save.

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

      Would’ve gone Kane on wc cause you could switch to Kun but since you have Sterling then it’s fine
      Curious why Havertz as the Chelsea option?
      Bruno or Rashford would be good differentials on wc
      Chilwell or PVA over Semedo don’t like the double defence

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        It's a non WC team mate. Played my WC in GW3 with was a disaster with triple Chelsea, triple wolves and triple man city. Did have Werner and Havertz all season but finally lost patience with Werner last week!! Havertz keeps ticking along and is getting better so quite happy with him. I'll move out one of the wolves defenders after the next 2 and probably Jimmy too

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Who gets more points over the next 8 GWs?

    Grealish: (Lee H, Sou H, Ars A, Bha H, Whu A, New H, Wol, A, Bur H) = 5 Home Games

    Hamez: (Sou A, New A, Mun H, Ful A, Lee H, Bur A, Che H, Lei A) = 3 Home Games

    Are Spurs or Everton playing midweek? I am interested on getting Kane and Rodríguez and it seems both are rising in price tonight.

      Spurs yes, but It’s EL so key players may get some rest

      Spurs home to LASK in Europa League on Thursday

      Spurs playing backups on Europa most likely

      Everton hasn’t been in Europe in a few years

    Shall I do Podence Werner-> Kane Hames for free before they both rise?

    Full team is:
    Martínez
    Robbo Saiss Mitchell
    Son Salah Foden Podence grealish
    Werner Dcl

    James, Justin Brewster

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years

      Yes

      Can’t argue with the two you’re bringing in...

      Werner is a tough sell at this moment though. Podence actually played ok too and has Newcastle up next

    Better combo:
    A) Maupay and Barkley
    B) Watkins and Trossard

      Pretty similar, maybe A

    a) McCarthy Jimenez to Martinez Kane (-4)
    B) WC

    McCarthy (Forster)
    TAA Justin Ayling (Taylor Mitchell)
    Salah Sterling Son Podence (Bissouma)
    Jimenez DCL Mitrovic

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      A - how can you go from suggesting - 4 to WC. Your team isn't even close to taking enough hits to WC.

      1. arndff_
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Well, my team value is low. Popular players are going up: no Grealish, Rodriguez for me.

  29. AnfieldLad
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 12 days ago

    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Semedo
    Salah Son Podence Soucek
    Werner DCL Mitrovic
    (4.0, Shaw Bissouma Ferguson)
    3.3 ITB 1FT

    Thinking of doing TAA + Mitro -> Reguilon + Kane (-4) before price changes now

    If I get injuries I can WC (which I’m considering anyway). If not I plan to WC week 8 and so think Reguilon could be great for the next few games

    Worth it? Or wait ?

    Do we think Rodriguez is now a better option with Richarlisons suspension or worse? Will he now be on pens?

    1. El Lobito 10
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Better

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 12 days ago

      Yes probably better option. Watch this video from FPLtips https://youtu.be/camujf0CqbQ
