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.

      I am looking to get maupay in 1 week for Adams because they play Brom. Why do you want to ship him out? Who are your other strikers?

  3. Bruce Lee

  4. Brosstan

    Kdb injury turned out a blessing in disguise for me. Wouldn't have brought in Kane if he weren't injured

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Agree. I missed out on Kane this week but still got Havertz in for Kev, and the money freed can now be used for Jimenez to Kane

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I agree; first -8 that I can recall

  5. Bobby Digital
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    VVD replacement (don't have another Pool def)
    A. Mings
    B. Robbo
    C. Saiss
    D. TAA
    E. Another? Who?

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

      All good options imo. I will bring in TAA. But i already have Villa and Wolves defense.

  6. Duffy Dunk

    How does this look? (I don't mind taking hits as long as the moves are good)

    TAA Barnes Klich Jimenez
    Targett/Konsa Son Rodriguez Maupay

    1. DK_13
      • 5 Years

      You think you will make back your -12 on that?

  7. LLoris
    • 1 Year

    Who should I sell Podence for I have 2M in the bank?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Grealish

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

      JRod or Grealish if you already have him

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

        Oh wait 2 m won’t get JRod so Grealish

  8. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Man those Podence and Saiss points would’ve made a phenomenal gameweek but can’t complain at all with 85 all out and a green arrow.

    Onwards and upwards hopefully, FT used to jump from Jimenez to Kane

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Really wish that goal had stuck, would have been close to a century

  9. Booked4Dissent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Just done McCarthy to Martinez for Villa’s fixtures until wildcard deadline. People always say don’t waste transfer on GK, but I hate having a keeper I’m not happy with. Thoughts?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nothing against that, I did the exact same thing on my GW2 WC and have been chuffed so far

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

      you want me to make you feel better bout it?

      it's a game, meant to make you happy - go for it if you're happy

      1. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Nah just wondering if people agree that Goalkeepers = a waste of FT

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

      I just done this move for a hit. The best value keeper.

    4. Brehmeren
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Good transfer

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

    Werner>Kane FT? Have Sonny

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I’d see how Werner gets on against United. If I had (sold this week lol) I’d keep one more week after that haul

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Considering Werner to Kane this week too...Kane is man on fire and Spurs next 3 fixtures too good to pass up. Think there is far more chance of the goals being spread at Chelsea with Pulisic, Havertz, Mount and Ziyech!

  11. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Which combo?

    A) Adams & Ake/Reguilon

    Or

    B) Wilson & Lamptey/Konsa

    1. Kannbury
        1 month, 5 days ago

        B. Konsa.

      The scenes when Jimmy outscores Kane this weekend.

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

        every other transfer here is jimmy to kane

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

          Yes. Because he destroyed a sorry Westham.

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

            Destroyed Man Utd ahead of that. Also destroyed Soton. Burnley next...

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

              Southampton played a ridiculously high line. United were shambolic and down to 10.

              Burnley will sit in like Newcastle did. He didn't have much joy against them.

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

            Burnley won't leave that space in behind. He could still do well but so could Jimenez against Newcastle.

      2. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Haha honestly that’d be so bad. Would be reminiscent of Werner to DCL for me this week

        (Though that move did enable Son in and captained)

      3. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Jimmy is incapable of hauling, interchangeable with Ings, nice player, but there is zero comparison to Kane

        The guy sets Premier league records for returns at the beginning of the season and all the naysayers are still clutching their pearls. Pens, top side, assists, what else do you want from a player?

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

          The thing is I completely agree with you. I am in no way saying Jimenez can compete with Kane but looking at this GW in isolation he certainly can outscore him. I can still make the move next week when Kane has Brighton.

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

            for me it was the captain fear on my league that swayed me.I don't see many with Jimi and those that do won't captain. Where as a lot have or will get Kane and captain him after that

        A

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

        I'm in identical boat, atm I'm thinking stick as it's Newcastle, but if I was to go one of them it would be b, as I think Ings scores more over next few (Southampton more attacking)

    4. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Any chance Kilman retains his spot?

      1. Ray In Bruges.
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        He got MOTM so I think there's a decent chance.

        1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          That would be an absolute FPL gift. But what then with Saiss and Marcal? Can't work out how everyone fits in.

      2. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Can’t see why they would change after that performance, Mercal nice backup option for both positions off bench

        1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I'm on a WC and tempted to move on Mitchell before PVA nicks his spot. But then there is an argument that Mitchell might have earned a place too.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I’m keeping Mitchell for a few weeks, PVA can play forward or they can replace Joel ward, don’t get too clever

            1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Haha, always trying to eek out that extra 0.1 and long term, would prefer an extra Wolves defender than a Palace one.

    5. 2OLEgend
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Usually I'd hold my transfers until deadline, but I just did Vardy & McCarthy to Kane & Martinez with my 2 FT to get in on the price-rise and avoiding Vardy drop.

        Question is: is Podence to McGinn worth the hit this week?

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

          1) Kane, Bamford, Hamez +1.9m
          2) Aguero, Jimmy, Grealish

          Need some help before the price rise.

          My current team:

          Meslier / Nyland
          Digne-Justin-Mitchell-Ayling-Holding
          Salah-Son-Rodriguez-Harrison-Bissouma
          Kane-DCL-Jimenez

          3.5m in the bank

          My plan is to move Jimenez to Brewster to make free 7.5m
          But how should I spend them? Harrison to Bruno maybe?

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

          Reckon I'm G2G for the next GW, captain choice and bench order?

          Martinez
          Trent - Saiss - Lamptey
          Salah - Son - Zaha - Podence
          DCL - Kane - Jimmy

          Subs: Steer - Dallas - Taylor - Burke

          Who says 8 point hits don’t work!!

          Kane, Son, Pulisic in, Bruno, Kev, Mitro Out, C from Salah to Kane, net 21 pts after hits, green arrow, team sorted, and avoided using WC.

            That one didnt work. Shouldnt have done Bruno>Puli for a hit.

              He needed Bruno funds for Kane.

              Bruno to son was the early transfer, no regrets, Man U are terrible. Rash is going to take some pens, better value elsewhere.

            In retrospect wish I had done this. Ended up benching KDB just cause I wasn't sure about Pulisic. Would have been able to swap him in and out again a few times over for all the points I would have gotten had I taken the hit.

          Is that 5G 7A for Kane in 5 games? (I guess 4 since he blanked GW1

          That’s absurd

            If he play hammers and Soton every week, he would be 24mil

              A lot of people were saying he wouldn't score big this week has West Ham would be organised and sit back. Look how it turned out. When Kane is on a hot streak I don't think it matters who he plays. Burnley could easily get turned over

                Different approaches I suppose. I look at poor West Ham instead of amazing Spurs. Doubling on City attackers. Can see a 4 goal haul.

          What transfer should I do?
          A) Jimmy to Kane
          B) Podence to Grealish/JRod
          C) Jimmy Podence to Kane Foden/Other 6.9 and below

          crazy to be playing Lamptey ahead of Barnes this week?
          West Brom look a bit toothless and Lamptey surely has a big score in him soon?
          Barnes on the other hand has looked pretty dire

          Bale is very likely to start against Burnley. People seem to think that might negatively impact Kane and Son but I reckon it could make them unstoppable. Really thinking Jimmy and Ings to Kane and Maupay for a -4 is what I have to do.

          I really want JRod in my team for the coming matches but not sure how to get him in. Heart says Mahrez - no guarantee of starts and more long shots than big chances, but head and stats says Havertz. But Havertz has done me well. I had also thought that I could do a -4 to swap Reed and do Jimi to Brewster but I think Jimi (like Mitro) will punish me in the next couple of matches if I sell). I should probably just leave the team and save the transfer. Any thoughts? Going to accept JRod price rise and wait for European matches this week.

          Martinez
          Robertson Digne Saiss
          Son Havertz Salah Mahrez
          DCL Mitro Jimi
          Nyland Mitchell KWP Reed

              Which is better

              A. KDB => Sterling (free)
              B. KDB, Wilson => Grealish, Kane (4pt hit)
              C. KDB, Wilson => Mane, Watkins (4 pt hit)

                C... Werner may come good now... would hold him.. and would go Grealish I think.
