    The Review: GW 5

    (Data taken from FFScout with consent)

    Hi everyone, welcome to “The Review” where I pen my thoughts on the Premier League football played at the weekend:

    1) Is it worth keeping Raúl Jiménez and Daniel Podence?

    Unlike Everton, Wolves' poor attacking numbers post restart have worryingly continued into this season as well:

    Wolves pre restart v Wolves post restart

    Shots in the box per game: 8.3 v 6
    Big chances per game: 2.3 v 1.43

    These numbers are cause of concern for managers who own the likes of Jiménez and Podence. Jiménez rewarded his owners with a fortuitous goal vs Leeds but is likely to keep ticking along, given that he has Newcastle and Palace in the next two. He’s a decent option for the short term but I think long term there is more value to be had in the cheaper forwards, or even alternatively in upgrading to captaincy options like Kane and Agüero.

    Keeping or selling Jiménez for now both has its merits, but I’d be far more confident keeping Podence this week. Scouring through the Wolves forums this week tells me that the Wolves fans expect Podence to keep his place, and I still think given his fixtures and price he’s an easy hold for me.

    2) Trent Alexander Arnold or Andy Robertson? Is it worth selling Trent and Robertson to invest more funds in attack?

    Here I’d like to run a few comparisons:

    Trent vs Robertson: (this season)

    Shots in the box: 0 v 4

    Big chances: 0 v 2

    Pen area touches: 6 v 22

    Final third touches: 154 v 218

    Big chances created: 2 v 3

    Trent 19/20 vs Robertson post restart:

    Mins per touch in final 3rd: 2.5 v 2.1

    Mins per chance created: 37 v 39

    Mins per big chance created: 167 v 133

    Mins per baseline bonus: 5.7 v 5.3

    As you can see Robertson is beating Trent in almost every single underlying stat that matters not only this season but post restart, which is very revealing. Understandably with other transfers being high priority, Trent to Robertson is an awkward transfer to make.

    I do get the temptation of selling them to invest in attack given the lack of clean sheets nowadays but I still don’t think this is the week to sell. Despite the absence of Allison and Van Dijk, Liverpool are still the most likely team to keep a clean sheet this week according to the odds. Trent and Robertson have the ability to haul in any game anyway given that it just takes an assist and a clean sheet for a defender to go big.

    3) Who is the better pick: Jack Grealish, Ross Barkley or Wilfried Zaha? Also, how do Villa’s defensive numbers compare this season to last?

    Grealish has looked very sharp playing in an advanced position on the left this season. He's popping up in the right place and creating chance after chance with some key passes as he now stands first for chances per game created since the league has started. He has also upped his penalty area involvement – Last season, Grealish was averaging ∼3.8 penalty area touches per game but this season that has risen to ∼9.5 due to his utilisation as an inside forward. Only Salah has more penalty area touches than him this season.

    I know that Barkley is more than a million cheaper and he scored this week, but I think I still prefer Grealish. That is primarily due to Grealish’s greater penalty area involvement and because I fear that with Hourihane dropped, Barkley might adopt a slightly deeper role like he did against Leicester – Grealish had double the number of penalty area touches than Barkley this week.

    As far as Zaha is concerned, I think Palace as a team lack creativity – they are second worst for non-penalty xG and shots inside the box since the season has started which highlights their negligible threat. Zaha is on penalties which is a big plus for him, but other than that he has registered just two big chances from open play in five games this season. Palace don’t offer enough as a team going forward to convince me on Zaha. The upcoming fixtures (ful wol LEE bur NEW) are decent but I think there are better options like Grealish who I would prefer if I had to choose one.

    Villa pre restart vs post restart

    Shots in the box conceded: 12.2 v 6.2

    Big chances conceded: 3.1 v 1.2

    Villa's defensive resurgence has continued into the new season as well which makes Emi Martínez hands down the best keeper to own right now. Villa are almost an entirely different team now, which means there is value in their defence as well. Emi Martínez would be my pick as he has the best minutes per baseline bps too of all Villa defenders, so he is the most likely of them all to record bonus points whenever Villa are to keep a clean sheet.

    4) What are my thoughts on James Rodríguez and is it still worth investing in Dominic Calvert Lewin given that he is almost a million more than his starting price?

    For those who don't own him, I think James Rodríguez could be a shrewd acquisition. With favorable fixtures (sou new MUN ful LEE bur) on his side, Rodríguez can come into his own particularly given that he might be on penalties while Richarlison is out. It’s worth noting that he stands second for both chances created and big chances created this season which not only bodes well for himself as an FPL asset, but also has a knock-on effect on Calvert Lewin.

    No player in the league has accumulated more big chances than Dominic Calvert Lewin over the past four GW’s. Calvert Lewin has the best xG of all players in the league this season and is yet to blank even once. Calvert Lewin’s and Rodríguez’s form means that Everton are ranked in the top three for xG and big chances created this season. If for whatever reason you don't have Calvert Lewin in your team yet, the boat hasn't sailed. More points are coming and even at £7.7m he is incredible value!

    5) How do Harry Kane’s numbers look like pre and post restart?

    Kane pre-restart v post-restart

    Shots inside the box per game: 1.8 v 2.2
    Big chances per game: 0.5 v 1.1
    Pen area touches per game: 4.7 v 3.9
    FPL points per game: 5.2 v 8.1
    Big chances created per game: 0.1 v 0.6
    Goals per game: 0.4 v 0.9
    FPL assists per game: 0.07 v 0.5

    Fascinating to note that Kane’s goals per game have gone up despite a shift to a slightly deeper #10 role and a drop in penalty area touches. It’s his creativity which has increased big time though – Kane has created the highest number of big chances in the league this season. Kane is second for xG of all players in the league this season as well, so he possesses genuine goal and assist threat at the same time which makes him an explosive asset.

    Spurs have recorded the highest number of big chances this season, and with encouraging fixtures (bur BHA wba) on his side, there’s every chance Kane continues to do well. What adds to Kane’s appeal is that a Spurs asset is probably the standout captaincy option in GW 8 when Spurs play West Brom, given the fact that Man City will be playing Liverpool that week.

    6) Is it time to invest in Sergio Agüero? How does the City attack compare last season to this?

    You can never go wrong with a nailed Man City attacker. They will always get you goals. While Gabriel Jesus is away, I’m sure Agüero will do well but with conflicting reports on the extent of Gabriel Jesus’ injury, I think it makes sense to wait before jumping in on Agüero because Jesus might be back sooner rather than anticipated. If Jesus is still a while away, then Agüero makes sense particularly from GW 10 onwards (BUR FUL mun WBA sou NEW) when City assets are the standout options for captaincy. He’s an easy switch from Kane as well at that point, when Spurs’ fixtures will be considerably tougher.

    Man City 19/20 v Man City 20/21

    Shots in the box per game: 13.4 v 9.5

    Big chances per game: 3.7 v 2

    It’s safe to say Man City have failed to hit the heights of last season yet, with their underlying numbers being nothing to write home about. I think the return to match fitness of a recognized front man in Agüero will make a huge difference however. I think this might be the calm before the storm – I’d advise to plan your team structures in a way where it is easy to own the City attacking assets from GW 10 onwards because they have tremendous upside.

    7) Who is the best captain this week?

    I think Mohamed Salah as the captain picks himself this week. He’s on penalties playing for a team that has the best xG this season. According to the bookies, Salah has the best odds of scoring a goal and Liverpool are the most likely team this GW to score 2.5+ goals. No player in the league has recorded more shots in the box this season. In the same fixture last season, Salah scored and registered 10 points so it’s safe to say he’s the obvious choice this week.

    The differential pick would be Raheem Sterling. He’s in form having scored both of Man City’s goals in previous two games. Man City have scored nine goals in their previous two league matches at the London Stadium so they like playing there. With the exception of De Bruyne who is unlikely to play at the weekend, Sterling has the best expected involvement (xGi) of all Man City players this season so there’s a good chance he’ll be involved whenever Man City score.

    8) Who is a good Reece James replacement and what are my thoughts on the 4m defenders?

    I think Tariq Lamptey from Brighton is a good choice. Brighton against Palace became the first team to restrict their opposition to zero shots inside the box from open play this season. No player created more chances or recorded more touches in the final third in the Palace v Brighton game than Lamptey. He was second for penalty area touches too. It’s also worth noting that Lamptey, after Ben White, fares the best for minutes per baseline bps too which adds to his appeal.

    Sitting second best for big chances conceded at home this season and best for fewest shots inside the box conceded overall, Brighton are now up against a West Brom side who have created just one single chance in open play from five games till date. Chances are that Ryan and Lamptey owners will be in profit this time at the weekend.

    Those FPL managers who don’t have a £4.0m or equivalent defender can consider Max Kilman from Wolves. The Wolves defender delivered a man of the match performance against Wolves, and now looks likely to hold onto his spot – at least for the short run. A quick glance through the Wolves forums tells me that the significant majority of Wolves fans expect him to keep his spot. Nuno was very complimentary about Kilman too: “When your chance comes you have to respond and Max did that. Two seasons ago Max was a back-up and now he is ready to compete. I think he played well, in the second half he started really well, reading the lines and anticipating well. It was a good pass forward for the goal too. I think he has something.” News is just coming in that he has been rewarded with a new contract so things look good for Kilman for now.

    Pascal Struijk can be a good enabler at £4.0m too, given that he is likely to play in place of Kalvin Phillips from Leeds who is likely to be out for six weeks with injury. However, I wouldn’t go there personally now considering that the loss of Phillips might have an adverse impact on the Leeds defence. Tyrick Mitchell too is a risk now, with Van Aanholt’s return to the Crystal Palace squad.

    9) Should faith be shown in Ché Adams and Danny Ings?

    I’d stick with both. Southampton have been very hard to predict this season, given that they post good attacking numbers one week and are fairly horrible in the other. One thing that has been consistent about Southampton though is the involvement of their two key men – either one or the other has been involved in all nine out of Southampton’s nine big chances this season so whenever Southampton score, one of them will inevitably be involved.

    I still like Adams for his price because despite his poor conversion rate, Southampton strike me as the kind of team who create enough to allow Adams to get involved regardless of his consistently poor finishing which is acceptable at his price. Ings has been rightly priced at £8.5m this season and he will continue to tick and has penalties in his locker as safety – I see no reason to sell him.

    10) In this section, I’d like to discuss two midfield differentials – Sadio Mané and Christian Pulisic.

    Sadio Mané is a great differential to own in the weeks to come. With Liverpool set to play Sheffield United and West Ham at Anfield in the next two GW’s, there’s every chance he returns big – particularly given the numbers he has posted so far. Before he got injured, no midfielder in the league had recorded more big chances than Mané this season and he was also ranked third of all players for big chances from open play. Currently, he stands best for big chances per game recorded for all players in the league. With just 8% ownership, Mané is a great differential if you are looking to move up the ranks.

    Christian Pulisic was a very popular De Bruyne replacement but the Chelsea midfielder failed to live up to the expectations this GW. The problem with Pulisic was that he was deployed on the right, while ideally FPL managers want to see him playing on the left as an inside forward because that’s where he is at his best. This week Pulisic had more touches in his own half than in the opposition’s, which tells you all about his withdrawn role. Lampard is likely to persist with Mount on the left though, until Ziyech returns to full fitness. So the fortunes of Pulisic owners is well dependent on the return of Ziyech to the starting lineup who is now returning close to match fitness with two back to back substitute appearances.

    I’d like to thank @urboihamza (on Twitter) for putting in the hours behind this research this week. Tremendous effort on his part realizing that doing this alone wouldn’t have been possible for me.

      Could I grab some advice on who to take out for Kane? Ings or Jimenez? Both have okay form, Ings looks sharper but has tricky fixtures (EVE, avl) whereas Jimenez looks a bit off it but has amazing fixtures to make some ground (NEW, CRY)

      Trent 19/20 Vs Roberson Post restart.
      Why compare stats over a different time period? Why not both 19/20 or both post restart numbers?

    With Van Dijk out and Fabinho moving into defense, is Milner now nailed in midfield? If so, will he take penalties instead of Salah?

    Was planning to bring in Salah this week but will transfer in Mane instead if Milner will take penalties.

    1. Jimmers

      Read on Twitter Jota played very well tonight.

            Aguero, but you really don’t need to be differential at this point in the season. It will only hurt your OR

      2. Right In The Stanchion

            Is it now? Interesting.

        Aguero on anyone radar yet?

          I couldn't justify him over Kane

          1. james 101
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Agreed

            Even with a Son and Kane double up

          Trying to work him in keeping Kane, son and salah, actually looks ok but it will take me a few weeks.

          By which point plans will have changed.

        Who needs to go first? Davies or Soucek? Was thinking Soucek --> Grealish / Barkley (FT)? Or perhaps Davies --> Kilman / Villa Def?

        McCarthy
        TAA | Justin | Taylor
        Salah (c) | Son | Pulisic | Soucek
        Mitrovic | Kane | C.Wilson

        4.0 -- B.Davies | Bissouma | Mitchell [1FT + 3.6m ITB]

        1. Neves say Neves
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Definitely Davies. Soucek could pop up with a goal against anyone

          1. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Thanks, that's what I feel. It just feels odd have both Bissouma and Soucek as 2 of 5 midfielders

        2. james 101
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Get freakish in

          ^ I could correct that autocorrect but I’m not going to

        3. Werner Bros
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I'd go with Davies first. At least Soucek plays. Do you have any in the bank to upgrade Davies to a Chilwell maybe?

          1. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            I do have 3.6m ITB so it certainly is possible! I just personally am not convinced by Chelsea's defence.

        4. xHaTr
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Soucek has highest xG without a goal so far

          1. The Count of Monte Cristo
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Cheers, no point having Davies rot on the bench given Soucek at least plays and, statistically, looks like scoring a goal. Set pieces vs Man City perhaps?

      9. Neves say Neves
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Who do you think will score more in the next 3 GWs

        A) James Rodriguez
        B) Jack Grealish

        1. james 101
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          A

          But B is a great shout too. I have both

        2. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          A but not much in it over next 3 IMO.

      10. Werner Bros
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        McCarthy / Nyland
        TAA Justin Taylor Mitchell / Davies
        Salah Son Zaha Podence / Bissouma
        Werner Jimi / Davis

        1FT 5.0ITB

        A: Davis > DCL (play 3-4-3 and bench one of Taylor/Justin)

        B: Jimi > Kane (play 4-4-2 with both Justin and Taylor)

        1. Neves say Neves
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          B

          1. Werner Bros
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Despite Jiminez' good fixture and Davis burning one of many holes in that team?

            1. Neves say Neves
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              What would you have said had I said A?

        2. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Yikes, someobody with the same unfortunate defence as I have!

          Out of those I prefer A but even saving FT would not be the worst move this week.

        Thoughts on Liverpool's performance tonight and implications it has on the weekend/ going forward?

        I thought we set up quite negative. Fabinho was excellent. Far too early to say anything with certainty but it may not be as bad as initially expected for clean sheets. But possibly at the expense of attacking returns. I think it's pretty fair to assume the fullbacks will have slightly less license to go forward meaning fewer attacking returns, but also could mean less supply to Salah/ Mane having a negative effect on them as picks.

          Yeah, I'd expect that to continue. More grinding out wins like early last season.

        Some weird glitch with Kanes price today he was 10.7 for a while today on site while being 10.8 in the app. 10.8 in both now

      13. FULLSERVICECOVER
        • 6 Years

        Wouldn't say robbo had less license to get forward at all tbh

        GTG here?

        Ryan
        TAA/Mitchell/Kilman
        Salah(c)/Son/Grealish/Zaha
        Kane/Werner/Maupay
        (Button/KWP/Taylor/Burke)

      15. Shark Team

        Dream scenario:
        I captain Kane instead of Salah
        Kane hauls but Salah gets only an assist
        Next gw everyone goes for Kane(C) but I go for Salah against his favourite West Ham and he hauls!

      17. Will J 256
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Would you do this move for a hit?
        Jimenez and R James to Kane and Ayling (-4)?

        1. BenDavies
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          yes

        2. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I think so.
