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.

    Who to start in GW6...?

    1) Bissouma

    Thanks!

      Kilman

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

        You think he keeps his place?

        1. Fit_to_drop
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          There isn’t a manager in the league who would bench Kilman after that strong showing. What does that tell your squad? Do well and you get benched? No way. It’s up to the big money signings to take his spot. That’s competition.

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

        You think he gets the start?

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Wait for wolves team news. Marcel may start ahead of kilman. Kilman if wolves are struggling with the defenders out. If not, Bissouma

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

        Seems wise. They play midweek as well no? If Kilman does not play midweek I may be tempted to start him

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          No midweek game for wolves

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

      1 because Mitchell and Kilman won't start

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

      Kilman. Been very good in the two games he's played. Don't see Nuno dropping him this GW.

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

        He's played due to Vinagre being loaned out (sold) and Marcal being injured.

      2. Fit_to_drop
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Totally. NES knows how to get the most out if his players. Adama not being automatic tells you that.

  2. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Saiss nearly 1G + 1A today showing what a waste Semedo is for more money. Of course Wolves lineup won't change till they concede a goal (Kilman starts and Saiss on the left) but I'm afraid that because the back three works better with Kilman, Saiss will be in threat of Marcal...

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

      Wolves signed a LWB as well, the team isn't set yet. Take Saiss and Kilman points and run, don't buy them in my opinion

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

      Yes I'm starting to think his game time could be a concern. I know he was close to an FPL haul but in footballing terms he really struggled at times tonight.

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

      Too early to say. Semedo had a massive chance last GW.

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

      Overthinking. Saiss a great pick

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

        Agréable

    5. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I agree - not ideal, but saiss has been playing well

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

        He has goal scoring threat without Doherty it is needed. So he is allowed to attack. Yes, that may cause some issues in defense, but he has permit to score and take risks going forward imo.

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

          He won't continue to play LWB

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

            He was bombing forward first game too with Marcal tucking in back 3.

        2. Eat my goal!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I’m keeping him without a doubt but I do see a benching

    6. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I liked Saiss’s position on the pitch tonight and, right know, him and Kilman Have that left side until they have a poor showing.

  3. Teriyaki 69
    • 3 Years

    Bottomed

    Need help here good lads

    Guaita
    TAA Saiss Justin Mitchel KWP
    Salah Son Grealish Foden Anguisa
    Mitro Jimmy DCL

    4.6M ITB.

    What to do here with only one ft? OR 2.3M

    1. HD7
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Decide on your formation.
      Either 4-3-3 or 3-4-3.

      Downgrade Foden and do Mitro to Kane for a hit (4-3–3)
      or downgrade TAA (3-4-3)

      I would do the former.

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

    Going to be some roughs next GW with people selling the likes of TAA, Werner, Jimenez, etc.

  5. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Gaaah i can't decide, do i take a -4 to do these moves?

    Trent & Jimmy > Kane & Chilwell

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

      No
      Just try and get Kane

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        How do I get Kane in here? Don't want to really lose KDB if he's only out for a week or so.

        Martinez (Steer)
        Trent - Saiss - Taylor (Lamptey & Dallas)
        Salah - Son - KDB - Podence (Burke)
        Jimmy - DCL - Maupay

    2. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Selling TAA and Jimi this gw is the definition of kneejerking

      1. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I want Kane, not sure how else to do it without losing KDB.

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

        Okay. Let's leave that plan then

        1. Hryszko
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Who would you rather have, kane or kdb?

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

      No.

  6. HD7
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Mccarthy
    TAA Mitchell Castagne Semedo
    Salah Son Zaha
    Ings Jimi DCL

    Button Bissouma Mendy Holding

    Ings to Kane best move?
    Anything else that makes better sense?

  7. Erez Avni
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I really can’t decide between Jiménez and Ings... I’m buying Kane that’s for sure but who should I sell?

    rest of the team. 2.5 ITB 1 FT

    Martinez
    TAA Robo KWP Justin (Mitchel)
    Salah Son Barnes (poveda stephens)
    Jiménez Ings DCL

    cheers!

    1. Bleh
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Would keep Jimenez for Newcastle if possible.

    2. HD7
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Im selling Ings if it helps

  8. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

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

      Lamptey yes

      1. Rinseboy

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      You're not playing a backline of Lamptey, Semedo, Saiss next week?

      That's my plan...

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I've switched James to Robbo mate in moment of madness! So need to play Barnes or Lamptey!

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Why would you do that lol.

          I'm deliberately waiting on James > Robbo next week so I don't have bench headache for this one 😛

          Lamptey starts imo.

          1. Rinseboy
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

          I feel like I should only listen to this while on a lonely walk at 2am in France

                Not really, some of my mates adore it but I don't really get the appeal

      Best playing mid under 5.3m, would be my 4th mid?

      1. Neves say Neves

        Probably Jorginho. Soucek otherwise

          This is a very similar squad to mine, having used my WC in GW5.

          I'm nervous about Saiss and PVA potentially not playing (hoping they both will though). The other issue being that getting KDB back in will either need surgery or selling Salah.

          Overall I like it and looks decent for GW6 - good luck!

      2. Hulk Smash

        Risky to bench two very attacking fullbacks for Lamptey and a possible PVA cameo.

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yeah I guess it’s either Lamptey or PVA. Really like PVA as a differential this GW. Chilwell instead of Lamps?

            I marginally prefer Castagne but it's 50-50 - but yes one of them in for Lamptey

        Not

      I am .2 short of Jiménez and Podence to Kane and Rodriguez -4

      Would you

      A Just do Jiménez to Kane
      B Just do Podence to Rodriguez
      C Do Foden to Rodriguez and Jiménez to Kane -4

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years

        C looks nice mate!

          1 month, 5 days ago

          Cheers-I assume you will be making Jimenez to Kane move - just unfortunate Wolves fixtures remain good but considerable more upside with Kane and option of move to Aguero possible in a few weeks.

          1. Rinseboy
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            yep done it and KDB to JRod

      2. Neves say Neves

        C is tasty

    13. Dacra

      Was just thinking Ings and Jiminez to Aguero and Kane with cash itb. Makes team look good.

      -8 though is mad.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That can backfire this week, but I am sure it makes the attack look mega

      2. Houldsworth Hatter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I just -16 and gained 14 points overall after the hit. It won’t work again this season I’m sure but -8 could well pay off given the quality coming in.

      Thoughts on downgrading Soucek to bench fodder? Will never come off the bench with current team, feel like that small money saved could be used better in defence

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        you give me advice bro i'm rank 2m

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

        If he's your 8th attacker then yes, waste of money

        1. HippY
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          8th man. Other 7 are Zaha, Salah, Son, Hames, Kane, Jimenez, DCL.

          RMT tool has him at b1 position for next six GWs. Still feel he is capable of points, which will be even more annoying when he does haul

    15. Brosstan

      Liverpool scam central.
      Solanke, Ibe... now Brewster. Getting way too much money for rubbish players. Brewster will never be more than bench fodder judging from his performance this week

      1. Bruce Lee
        • 2 Years

        good business from them

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

      A) Sterling + Jimenez ➡ Salah + Kane
      B) Pulisic + Jimenez ➡ Salah + fwd

      Which one would you prefer

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

        A

    17. bruuuno
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      What to do here? Plan is Havertz > Salah for free, but maybe I need to squeeze in Kane in some way?

      McCarthy Steer
      TAA Targett Lamptey (Justin Johnson)
      Sterling Son Grealish Havertz (Bissouma)
      Jimenez DCL Mitro

      4.2 itb, 1 ft, WC left

      1. Tonyawesome69

        1 month, 5 days ago

        Just the Salah move. You would have to downgrade someone to get Kane. Maybe Sterling to Foden but Sterling is a good differential

    18. Tonyawesome69
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      So after another poor GW, I have taken a - 8. Shall I just hit the WC and sort out the other players* or stick with the - 8?
