Mendy and Thiago boosting Chelsea defence’s FPL appeal ahead of decent fixture run

Manchester United 0-0 Chelsea

  • Bonus: Kurt Zouma (£5.0m) x3, Reece James (£5.0m) x2, Harry Maguire (£5.4m), Thiago Silva (£5.5m) x1

Manchester United and Chelsea played out a generally drab draw that was heavy on tactical caution and much lighter on action.

The biggest talking point of the match was, fittingly, a non-event, with referee Martin Atkinson and VAR both deciding Harry Maguire‘s (£5.4m) neck lock on Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m) was not a penalty.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard disagreed:

Holding is allowed, but headlocks aren’t. I think they should have taken time and advised the referee to watch the monitor. If the referee goes to the monitor, he gives a penalty.

Had the penalty been awarded and converted, Lampard’s decision to play three at the back, sit deep and commit very few men to the counter-attack would have been vindicated.

As it was, United were the only team to at least look like they wanted to score, creating a chance every 6.8 minutes (to Chelsea’s 15.8) and having four shots on target to the visitors’ one.

The Thick Blue Line

The game involved Jose Mourinho-era levels of bus parking by Chelsea.

The return of Thiago Silva (£5.5m) was always going to help with the team’s savvy, but a swap to a three-man backline added further grit and the decision to temper the attacking instincts of wing-backs Reece James (£5.0m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.7m) sealed the defensive deal.

United were happy to sit fairly deep themselves, resulting in long periods of footballing stalemate in which Chelsea had plenty of the ball but did precious little with it.

James and Chilwell did top the crossing charts, alongside Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m), with six apiece, but while half the midfielder’s efforts found their target, only one of the 12 sent over by the defenders was successful.

Maximum bonus points went to Kurt Zouma (£5.0m). He frequently stepped out of the back three to mark Juan Mata (£5.9m), who was again allowed the freedom to drift into central pockets of space, often in advance of central striker Marcus Rashford (£9.5m).

As a result, the key takeaway from the match – and the midweek encounter with Sevilla in the Champions League – is that Lampard is taking a liking for clean sheets.

In the last three matches in which Thiago and Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) have started together, Chelsea haven’t conceded a single goal.

That should elevate the Fantasy status of the two cheapest regular starters in defence – Zouma and James.

The Blues are embarking on a very promising five-match schedule in which a visit from Spurs looks perhaps the toughest test.

The next three matches in particular – Burnley and Newcastle away, Sheffield United at home – look ripe for defensive returns should Lampard continue to indulge his more conservative instincts.

Chilwell leads the way, not just among Chelsea defenders but the entire team, for chances created this season, with nine. James and the dropped Mason Mount (£6.9m) are just one back, but the pair have been involved in all five matches so far, whereas Chilwell has played only three.

The former Leicester man probably offers the best prospect of returns at both ends of the pitch, but those who like a bargain might be more tempted by James or Zouma, with the latter having scored twice this season as well.

A Lack Of Attack

As for the visitors’ attack, it was a case of ‘move along, nothing to see here’.

Chelsea sat so deep that the service to, and support for, Timo Werner (£9.3m) and Christian Pulisic (£8.3m) was on the criminal side of negligent.

After losing half his opening day ownership – 1.4 million managers – before his 16-point Gameweek 5 haul, a few hopeful bosses had modestly boosted Werner’s numbers heading into the Old Trafford encounter.

They were treated to just one attempt all match. Pulisic was livelier, with three shots, including the one and only attempt by a Chelsea player that forced David de Gea (£5.4m) to do anything other than stand around shouting and getting very wet.

Damningly, Werner and Kai Havertz (£8.4m) managed, in 143 minutes combined, fewer attempts (one) and penalty area touches (two) than United sub Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) had on his own (two and three respectively) from a 32-minute cameo.

Even more damningly, the 8.6%-owned Havertz provided none of those numbers and didn’t exactly make up for that with the one chance he created.

Lampard is unlikely to play it so ultra-safe over the next few Gameweeks, but patience in all of their exalted front three has worn very thin already this campaign, with significant sales of the trio, and should Chelsea’s newly pragmatic streak continue, their points might not justify their price.

The Tyranny Of Choice

If Lampard is still struggling to find his optimum XI from the riches at his disposal, his United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is another yet to find exactly what he’s looking for.

Since Anthony Martial (£8.8m) triggered a three-match ban with his dismissal in the Gameweek 4 drubbing by Spurs, Marcus Rashford (£9.5m) has covered at centre forward.

He was as industrious as anyone at Old Trafford, with three attempts, two of which were on target, including one effort that brought a particularly fine save from the impressive Mendy.

Of United’s attacking options, he and Fernandes are easily the most popular, but their medium-term prospects for points do not look so good, with Arsenal, Everton, the newly-awkward West Ham and Manchester City to come over the next six Gameweeks.

Solskjaer spoke optimistically of the team’s excellent balance after their 4-1 win at Newcastle last time out, but in truth that ignored the lack of defensive cohesion in evidence against what was a poor Magpies attack.

The backline was more impressive on Saturday, with Maguire and Victor Lindelof (£4.9m) preferred in central defence to Axel Tuanzebe (£4.5m), who had been superb in the midweek win at Paris Saint Germain.

But much of that was down to Chelsea’s blatant lack of attacking intent.

Further up the pitch, Mata and Daniel James (£6.3m) have started the last two matches. The latter has made a feeble case for further inclusion, while the former is creating issues for opposing defences, but needs more than the one assist he’s managed in his two starts to turn Fantasy eyes, even if he is temptingly cheap.

Solskjaer talked about new man Cavani, and the returning Paul Pogba (£7.8m), after the match:

Edi has been out and needs game time to get his sharpness. I am sure he is going to give us lots. As for Paul, he has made a positive impact for us in three games as substitute over the last week. Don’t forget he had coronavirus. He is coming along.

Throw in the curiously under-used Donny van de Beek (£6.8m) and the coach has lots of options, but seemingly little idea as to how to marshal them all.

Fantasy interest is unlikely to stray much further than Rashford and Fernandes until that is addressed.


Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw; Fred, McTominay (Greenwood 83′); Mata (Pogba 58′), Fernandes, James (Cavani 58′); Rashford.

Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Zouma; Chilwell; Jorginho, Kante, James; Pulisic (Ziyech 81′), Havertz (Mount 72′); Werner (Abraham 71′).

      It wasn't really a bad decision though was it. Salah could have easily hauled and was unlucky not to.

    Ings to Vardy?

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      No

    2. Gandalf

      No

    3. St Pauli Walnuts

      I'm planning on keeping Ings all season as it stands.

    If Auba does well against United and is played in the striker position,Would you be interested?

    1. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Not at all at that price, gunners need first sorting out and show for weeks to come that they are any good fpl wise

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Even for last 2 seasons Gunners have blown more cold than hot. Still Auba managed closed to 30 returns.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      He needs to be scoring a lot more at that price.

  5. Do I Not Like Orange

    Is Coufal nailed for West Ham, and if so is he a better option than Cresswell/Masuaku?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Masuaku's xGI/90 is miles higher than Coufal or Cresswell's, so that could sway your decision.

    Fantastic win for our boys last night. Must be the first time we've beaten Arsenal at their place for many years.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Great win, we keep doubting Leicester but they seem to be churning out results at the moment - the guy at the back seems to have made a difference

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        I haven't seen anything of Fofana yet but he sounds as though he's going to have a huge future. We did well to get him but I can see if the rave reviews continue the bigger clunbs will come sniffing around. What the hell we are going to do when Vardy retires is another matter.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Well done! Leicester being well underrated and Vardy continuing to bang in the goals. Europe will be an issue though, teams not suited to Europe usually suffer when they enter it.

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks! Absoluetly right - FPL investment in Foxes players has to be tempered with realism .... just a look at other Europa League teams over the past few years. I can only remember Wolves bucking thst trend.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Wish I didn't take out Vardy before City, at least the 5-2 loss would have had some upside!

    3. The Knights Template

      Nice to see grandpa Vardy get a goal.

    If you haven't captained son or kane, but have both - do you still want them to do well or is it detrimental?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Son ownership around me is sub 100%, Kane is over 100%

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Hey Miguel! How is it going? GWpoints ok from your end?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          Ings, Jimenez and Saiss adding some respectability but still only on 32 points net with Son and Harry left.

          1. Hot Fuzz
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            Not to bad man, got son left 44 with a minus 4. Good luck for tonight

            1. Miguel Sanchez

            • 10 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            Very similar. 33 with Kane(c) and Son left, but not expecting miracles. I think we had our luck for the week with Saiss yesterday.

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              10 months, 28 days ago

              Great position to be with captain Harry still to go. Nice win for the Foxes last night too.

              1. Old Man
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                10 months, 28 days ago

                😀 Sounds like we were a bit lucky with their "goal". (I didn't see the match)

    2. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Of cause I would. Points are points just that I don't own Kane that's all .kane is the only one to threaten my OR so for me son should get more then Kane

    3. Flair

      Hope they do well, 3/4 of the top 10k won't be there when the season ends.

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        3/4?that's only 7500 players out of perhaps 3.5 million active one's. Damn the chase is on! Hear what you saying though.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          More that it's not fun to root against players when EO doesn't matter right now.

          1. Bobby
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            Yep I get this, just wish I had kept the armband on kane, followed the crowd so my decision though, no excuses

    4. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Depends on rank, but generally think defined would want Son to explode and Kane doesn't matter

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Thoughts?
    Martinez
    Robbo - Lamptey - Semedo
    Mane - Sterling - JRod - Foden - Podence
    DCL - Kane
    O ITB 1 FT

      Save this week.

    2. Bobby
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Think maybe ings rather than dcl, and bruno or son rather then jrod. Id downgrade podence and semedo for the funds. This team seems too heavily skewed on form rather than class

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Why remove DCL and Rodriguez before Fulham and Newcastle? Both are class players.

        1. Bobby
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          Ah sorry thought this was a wildcard proposal, and also mistook jrod for Rodwell!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Thanks, a switch from Podence to Antonio and 352 to 343 could set up the team nicely for the future.

    4. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      Mane to Salah (just kidding)!

      1. Flair

        I live in fear without the Egyptian king! Should have kept him alongside Mane.

    Bowen vs Fornals? Seems like a 50-50 to get one right when they vs Fulham

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I prefer Bowen. He looks nailed on the RW.

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Hey Karan, what do you think when said Benrahma slots in how they going to set up?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          He's a Left winger. I don't think he's a threat to Bowen position in the team.
          But Moyes has already said he won't walk into the starting 11.

          1. Hot Fuzz
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            I know, just wondering how the midfield would look like?with him playing

            1. Karan14
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              10 months, 28 days ago

              I would imagine they stick with 3 atb as that's working for them. So Soucek & Rice in midfield.

              1. Hot Fuzz
                • 4 Years
                10 months, 28 days ago

                Hmmm interesting. Yeah rice is doing quit well in that system indeed

    2. Hot Fuzz
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Bowen out of these 2 just Eye test wise

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Bowen
      Not even close
      Fornals can lose his spot to Lanzini

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Same question to you amey, how would WHU set up when Benrahma is starting to play? Excuse my manners,how are you anyway?

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          Benrahma should take Masuaku spot (LW)
          Fornals plays like a 8/10 IMO.

          I am doing well in real life. Sh.t in FPL 😀
          Thanks for asking. Hopefully you're doing well mate !

          1. Hot Fuzz
            • 4 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            Really masuaku? I saw the games with Ben and it looks like he is a AM. Sort of tugging into the left and moving centrally when attacking. Anyway we will see hahaha. It's great to hear you are good.hopefully your fpl gets better soon.i am probably the other way around fpl pretty ok life though is a different ball game. Good luck amey

      Bowen is nailed and returns more, simple decision.

      1. Hot Fuzz
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Sorry flair ,I do think it's a bit more then that for me. The Eye test is that what swings my decisions quit frequently but that is just me.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Bowen is the better option, there's no arguing against that...

            Not saying or wanting to argue about that read my response above about the bowen question. Just saying for me is more to it then a player being nailed and returning more points.that all flair. Sometimes there are players not returning but workrate on the pitch is higher creativity is better etc.but that is only my view on it. My apologies if I might offended you. Have a great gameweek man

              No need to apologize, my response was too simplistic because I considered their to be a very clear winner in his question. Good luck to you too!

    Hi guys

    Everton missing some key players for the next couple of weeks. To my eye they haven’t looked quite the same since the international break.

    Those holding Everton assets: stick or twist?

    FYI I am a non Kane owner(!) with DCL and JRod. Thank goodness I own Bamford this GW. Have 2x FT for next week.

    Thanks

    Olly

      DCL is third for points so going nowhere for now.

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Did DCL to Jimenez two GWs ago despite everyone getting DCL.

      DCL pts 6 & 1
      Jimenez pts 8 & 9

      Play your own game

        Same, had toyed with idea of switching Jimenez to DCL for the next GW but not any longer

    3. Hot Fuzz

      Rains got a point

    Mornign dzzz, have exact funds to do Jimenez >> Kane. Go ahead with it or sort out the other problem areas? 1ft and 2.4m

    Martinez
    TAA Saiss James -- Lamptey (tot) Mitchell (wol)
    Salah(c) Havertz* Barnes* Son -- Burke
    DCL Jimmy Watkins

    *Havertz doesnt look great but good fixtures in an attacking team. Barnes had lee and WOL so okkish fixtures but leicester don't look great

    A: Jimmy >> Kane
    B: Barnes >> Grealish/Rodri
    C: Havertz + Barnes >> Sterling + Barkley
    D: Save and play a mini WC in gw8 to bring in Antonio and potentially Kane as i expect most will captain kane in gw8
