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.

      Nicely balanced. It's amazing how few Man U and City assets we see in teams (Bruno owner).

      1. Whiskerz
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks. I am slightly tempted by Bruno, bit it would have to be son to make way and that just doesn't make sense at the moment.

    C- Sterling + lookman
    D- Rashford + foden

  3. Make America Greta Again

    Will Trent drop 0.1? Might get him in for James (already have Robbo).

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      have you checked the price change sites ?

      1. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        No, just noticed he hasn't dropped despite a fair amount of transfers out. Feel he won't with Virgil injured.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Probably a lot of wildcard transfers for him since gw1 so not accurate

          1. Make America Greta Again
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I just follow the chatter on here, will monitor. Expecting 10 points plus from Trent vs Sheffield who look in trouble.

    2.4 ITB. Bruno > Salah (c) the move here?

    1. Zim0

      Nah keep Bruno. Do Jimmy or Ings to Kane

      1. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Defo planning on getting Bruno back in once I downgrade TAA in a few weeks, feel Salah's EO will be huge this GW though.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I dunno. Bruno can get snatch a goal out of nothing and Kane can easily match Salah on current form. Probably even do better.

          1. Do I Not Like Orange
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Suppose European games could change everything. Bit worried Jose could instruct Spurs to shut up shop once they get 2 up after the West Ham debacle.

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Yes it's a risk either way. No correct answer. Do what ur gut says

    2. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Despite being a Bruno owner, I would bin for Mo (c) in your case.

  5. KneejerkJoe
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I kneejerked to catch the price rises last night, but then there was None... couldn't resist Kane! Probably wont make up for it this week, but hope in the next 3?

    Digne + Klich + Jimenez -》Kilman + Kane + Barkley -8

    Would you bench Kilman or Chillwell?

    Martinez
    Saiss Kilman Lamptey
    Salah Sterling Son Hames Barkley
    Kane DCL
    ...Steer Chillwell Brewster Justin

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Bench Kil for Chill. Not sure selling Digne and Jimenez will be that smart but agree Kane is looking essential

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I'd bench Lamptey. Brighton defense not any good with their playing style and dunk will be missing next game too

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          But Lamptey plays like a winger and Brighton look quite good going forward.

      2. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks, I agree, Im not sure either..

        With Hames in the team I dont feel like Digne has the same appeal tho. Also dont think Wolves will score meny goals against grams like Newcastle and CPL.

        Can really backfire tho, but Kane is riseing quickly, dont want to miss the train. Also now I can get Aguero in easy for Kane if I like.

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      That looks a great squad for the next few matches. A bit unblanced for the long term though.

      1. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks! Im monitoring Trent, and will probably get him in someway in the future. Dont rate their cs potensial without ved and Allison tho, Even tho I look at hun as a winger, you need the cs.

        Happy with my tv 103.1, hope that will be an advantage going forward

    3. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I'd bench Lamptey for Chilwell. - 8's are all the rage, I did one last gw to get back Son and Kane and went up 600k in rank. Those 2 players brought me great joy (not just points) to borrow from Marie Condo.

      1. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks! Ive been waiting for Lampteys hawl, dont know if I got it in be to bench him for WBA at home!?

        Great transfers bud, theres so better feeling than a hit or two paying off!

        Im a little scared of beeing to late for the Kane party tho. He obv cant keep this up. The extra tv plus their next 3 fixtures was too hard to resist tho.

        1. Make America Greta Again
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Actually scrap that, great fixture for Lamptey, wba are dung.

  6. cnewman7
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    What do do here? Good start sitting at 120k but just feel like I’m missing the high-owned players who are performing (mainly Kane and DCL). Also no LIV defence with 2 plump home fixtures concerns me.

      • 10 Years

      Yeah good moves. I'm thinking to do Jimmy and James to Kane and kilman (-4) which is a bit more borderline. What do you reckon?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That’s ok too - see my point below that Jimenez won’t punish sellers, only 6 double returns in 81 PL games

        1. fish&chips
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Yeah good point. Think I'm ready to make the move. Cheers!

    Martinez
    Saiss, ward, taa

      Sterling & Werner to Kane & Son

      1. The Head-Ake
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Why would one sell Werner with his recent form? He's just getting started

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

          the question was how to get Spurs, you can’t have Kane & Werner easily

          I think Werner will frustrate

      2. Klopp it
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yea defs don't really wana sell werner, esp cuz iv had him from the start and iv waited this long for him to get going, I was looking at jimenez and greenwood, for kane,l and saka?

      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      TAA (SHU) & Jimenez (NEW) ➡️ Kilman (NEW) & Kane (bur)

      Are these moves worth -4 this week?

      Also leaves money in the bank for James to Chillwell next week.

      Could also make all 3 moves for a hit next week.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        No other ways to get Kane?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Unfortunately not.
          DCL & Watkins can't be upgraded to Kane.
          Salah, Mane & Son are my other premiums who I obviously I don't want to sell.

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I can deal with selling Jimenez but selling TAA before such a prime home fixture looks so risky

            1. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              I agree. I think Jimenez & TAA combined look good for atleast 12 points this week.

      2. The Head-Ake
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I'd do it honesly

      3. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yup, with that move to Chilwell in the pipeline it looks good for this week.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Cheers!
          Only issue is can get all 3 next week for -4 plus Pool & Wolves have prime home games this week.

      4. Konstaapeli

        Do you have to play Kilman?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Nice. Whats your score? I jumped from 4.6M to 3.2M with 86

            Nice one! I got 91, pre wc team would have gotten about 40

        is it worth to do mitro > watkins (-4)?

          Yep

        What do we think of Pulisic after his first start? Didn’t look great so a wait and see imo

        1. Jet5605
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I'd wait until he's in the points before buying. He's playing in a new frontline now

        2. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Just wait until he explodes and hop straight in. He'll score well from then on until he gets injured again.

            He is a delicate boy

          1 month, 5 days ago

          I thought he looked alright - see what he does next game week

          Chelsea are still bedding in players - they are already scoring lots of goals

          Might need two assets in the long run

        4. El Niño Yanqui
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Looked bad this week:

          (1) could be rust
          (3) could be new team does not know him
          (4) too many other attackers in his typical spaces
          (5) he’s really just a young speedy winger, not really a #10
          (6) just warming up

          Something between 1 and 6

          I won’t be buying until I see life- Barkley looks better at Villa

      • Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Are Jimi owners holding? Bit of a lucky goal and Wolves haven't looked at the races lately.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Selling for Kane

        2. cemal
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          who would you swap to? He’s a nailed started with so many goals coming from him

        3. The VAR Team
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          To be fair Jimi does this every week

          1. The VAR Team
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Now he doesn’t get red cards either which is a nice bonus

        4. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Holding with two nice home fixtures but sellers won’t be too heavily punished. Only 6 double returns in 81 PL games.

        5. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Gone for Kane

        7. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Holding. Need to save up 2FTs to get him in

      • Klopp it
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 5 days ago

        Two free transfers, is this a good move

        Jimenez to kane

        Greenwood to mcginn

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Can you stretch to Barkley?

      • Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Is it worth losing Ings and Jimi in order to get Salah and Kane or should I keep Ings and only get one of the two beasts?

        A - Ings, Jimi & Havertz > Salah, Kane & Brewster for -4 over the next two weeks
        B - Jimi & Havertz > James & Kane
        C - Digne & Havertz > Konsa & Salah

      • Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I can only get Kane in 2 moves and involves getting rid of Werner.

        Is it worth it this week?

        R James + Werner > Konsa + Kane (-4)

        1. Pavsboot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Uhhh, definetly not.

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

            In my head I knew the answer. Sometimes need people
            To tell me.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Yes imo

      • Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Will Kane punish Burnley at Turf Moor or did Burnley do well defensively yesterday?

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

        A - Good to go and roll FT with .8 itb
        or
        B - Jimenez & TAA to Kane & Reguilón (or cheaper like Villa defender)

        Ryan
        Walker-Peters, Chilwell, TAA
        Salah, James Rod, Son, Havertz
        DCL Wilson Jiminez

        McCarthy, Soucek, Bernardo, Taylor

      • Jet5605
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Kane looked unplayable in that first half against West Ham. One of the best performances I have seen in a while. Almost Berbatov esque the way he held up play and brought players in plus lethal finishing too!

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Already equalled his best assists tally in a season. Could push for that Henry/KDB record.

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

          lucky with one of his goals .., went through defenders legs twice

          He is looking a good FPL option though

      • Jet5605

        Score predictions for Liverpool v Sheff Utd and Burnley v Spurs?

        3-0 and 0-1

        Think Jose might put the shackles on Spurs again after Sunday's collapse.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          4-1 and 1-5

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          One two teams (Villa with 2, Ars with 6) have conceded fewer goals than SHU's 7. Just saying.

          1. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

        What are the chances Kilman retains his spot for the next couple of GW's?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Not sure why they’d drop him after two Clean Sheets and a MOTM performance

        2. JIMMY764
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Very high going off his performance last night.

        3. Pompel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Might take the chance and downgrade Boly to him to allow Jimi to Kane this GW. Will be very thin in defense if he doesn't play, though

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I’ve done it - have two 4.0s in Kilman and Ferguson

            1. Pompel
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              I will have Mitchell and Kilman then. So could move on Mitchell later then

        Jiménez goal was an OWN goal by Leeds. BS call by EPL and FPL

        Gift 5 points to Jimi owners and Kiliman owners

        But if Bruno can rake fictional stats, why can’t Jimi

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Jimenez’s initial shot was on target

        2. JIMMY764
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          There's no clear direction ref own goals like that. Although it's generally accepted that a shot on target stands as the attackers goal. So I wouldn't call it a BS call tbf.

        3. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Don't you own either?

          If you feel hard done by Jimenez goal I had Mane(c) this week who was ruled offside because of his shirt sleeve which meant a 12 point swing for me.

          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          People still complaining is hilarious 😆 These have been the rules for a long time. If the shot is on target the goal is given to the shooter even if it takes a wide deflection. Doesn't really matter what u think.

        6. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          If the shot is on target & deflected by an opposing defender, the goal is awarded to the shooter. There are other aspects of the game to blame EPL & FPL but nothing this one

        7. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          1. El Niño Yanqui
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            That wild shot was not definitely or even probably on-goal, the deflection completely change the trajectory.

            The shot was clearly heading wide right and the deflection, placed it bottom Left. Slowly and without power. The goalie positioned him self to guard the bar and watch Jimi's crazy shot head into the stands.

            Below the links to the same scenario, different call.

        Guys what's my best transfer for this GW

        Want Salah and Kane (3.3ITB)

        Martinez
        Robbo Justin Saiss
        Sterling (c) Pulisic Son Podence
        Jimenez Ings DCL

        Werner owners. What’s your plan with him?.

      • Tony Martial
        • 1 Year

        Thoughts??

        Are these good moves??
        Have Kane already.

        This week= Wood and VVD ➡️ Cahill /(4.5)? and Kun -4.
        Following week Maupay ➡️ DCL.
