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′).

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Martinez (forster)

    Chilwell - Lamptey - Dallas (mitchel,dunne)

    Son - Salah - Mané - Podence (anguissa)

    DCL - Kane - Jimenez

    Thinking of saving the FT and next week do Jimenez + Podence to Antonio + Grealish

    Thoughts?

    1. TheDragon

      Toss a coin - a better strategy this season than making a well thought out decision

      1. tommo1989
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Haha I know how you feel! I played Digne and Mitchell this weekend ahead of Reece James and Justin. Nearly more points on my bench than my starting eleven this week!

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          An auto pick team unchanged from start of the season would be beating the majority who post on here so far this season (including me)

          1. tommo1989
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 22 hours ago

            My best one this season was having Son for the first GW, transferring him out after Tottenham’s awful performance against Everton (only for him to score 4 against Southampton..). Transfer him back in for the 1 point against Newcastle then transfer him back out again when Jose said he had a hamstring injury so missed his 18 points against Man Utd!! I finished top 5k last season but my uncle who has never played before is beating me this year!

            1. Stram Dunk
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              29 days, 22 hours ago

              Botev Plovdiv 😉

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Sounds great

  2. Wılly
    • 7 Years
    29 days, 22 hours ago

    Nkoukou likely to start for Everton now that Digne is serving a 3 match ban?

    1. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Everyone will need a new 4.0 to jump to when Kilman doesn't start the next game, he may be the one!

    2. tommo1989
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Yes I would imagine so, he looked good in the league cup

      1. Wılly
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Might be worth a punt with 2FT available and nowhere to spend them

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Not worth a punt for FPL as he'll only have 3 games (even if he is the replacement) and Everton hasn't kept a CS since GW1.

      1. Wılly
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Attacking fullback in a goal-scoring team though is good for 4.0 but there's talk that Delph may play there as Coleman is still out

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 21 hours ago

      Ban won't stand.

      1. Werkself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 21 hours ago

        Ref saw it. VAR confirmed it. They'd have to do cartwheels to reverse it after that. (I agree it was a horrible call).

  3. DickFranDyke
    • 11 Years

    Go lower...4.5...you may need they money elsewhere soon 😉

  4. Slitherene
    • 2 Years

    Best striker for the next 2?
    Except Kane?

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Probably Brewster the way this season is going

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Probably Benteke.

    2. DickFranDyke
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Watkins

  5. tommo1989
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 22 hours ago

    Does anybody think there’s an chance whatsoever of Digne’s red card being overturned on appeal or is it best to transfer him out?

    1. caldracula
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      No chance

    2. Marcin the Pole
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Personally don't think its a red, but there's no chance it gets overturned. They'll peddle the old 'VAR looked at it so it can't be overturned' line. Transfer out.

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Yeah. It was unfortunate, but really can’t see it being overturned.

    4. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Looks malicious to me.. the putting his hands up in the air before the contact was very odd.

    5. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 21 hours ago

      I do. He should've been booked for the initial foul, but it's not red, there was no intent at all.

  6. caldracula
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 22 hours ago

    A) Martinez + Mitchell
    B) Guiata + Konsa

  7. Somar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 22 hours ago

    Does anyone know the Son and Kane captaincy stats? I have both but part of me is hoping they blank because if you did not captain either, there should be a rank drop!

      Wood > Bam

    2. tommo1989
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Wood to Werner or Jimenez and TAA or Robertson to a cheaper defender

      1. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        This

    3. Chucky
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Wood to Watkins or bam

      1. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Wood -> Bam and Semedo -> Chillwell

    4. HenrikFPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Would get rid of Wood personally.

      Also, not sure if I like the Liverpool defence double-up.

      So maybe something like:
      TAA —> Chillwell
      Wood —> Ings/Maupay/Bamford

      Could also downgrade Wood to Brewster and upgrade 5th mid to play 3-5-2 (I tend to lean towards playing 3-4-3)

    5. Rondon9

      Salah | Bruno | Son | Rodriguez | Soucek
      Kane | DCL

      Steer | Mitchell | Davis | Buur

      Thinking Buur & Davis to Kilman & Brewster to strengthen bench.

      Thoughts?

            Proposed moves would leave 0.1ITB, despite a bad gameweek I’m quite happy with the main XI

              Defo two extra playing squad members?

                29 days, 22 hours ago

                Yeah they definitely getting more minutes than Buur and Davis (0)

        TAA>Chilwell or James
        Soucek>Barkley or Grealish

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          Hmm I really want to keep Trent, I think I would consider to Robbo however

          1. Lallana
            • 6 Years
            29 days, 22 hours ago

            Robbo has been playing better. I own both and I'm getting rid of Trent but after the West Ham game the fixtures looks grim.

            At least Alisson is back! We got an unlucky pen against us for the Sheffield game. Should have been a clean sheet.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 3 Years
              29 days, 22 hours ago

              Definitely. And put that with the offside Salah goal would have likely been cleanie, assist and BAPs for Trent

              1. Lallana
                • 6 Years
                29 days, 22 hours ago

                A lower scoring gameweek too so the freak start of goals might end soon.

      A few highlights from my week so far:

      Meslier on the bench - Patricio concedes at the death.
      Justin on the bench.
      Digne goes beserk.
      Captain Mane played well but would have been better if Salah wasn't such a greedy diva. I hope Mane gives him a slap one of these days.

      Still to come:

      Son hat trick
      Kane hat trick
      Lamptey hat trick. Ryan gets sent off, Lamptey goes in goal and gets clean sheet and saves a pen.

        Nice plan just add Bisso with another hattie and we are gtg.

      Salah Son Grealish Zaha (Burke)
      DCL Ings Kane

      2 FT, 0.3 ITB
      Some ideas?

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Ferguson -> Kilman

    14. jam sandwich
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Martinez - Steer
      Robertson - Chilwell - Saiss - Lamptey - Branthwaite
      Salah - Son - Rodiguez - Pulisic - Bissouma
      Kane - DCL - Maupay

      2FT 0.0ITB

      Maupay + Branthwaite --> Antonio + Kilman?

    15. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      A) Konsa
      B) Lamptey
      C) Masuaku

      1. Lallana
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        D) Coufal?

        But out of your choices perhaps Konsa.

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          I prefer Masuaku over Coufal, better underlying stats IMO

    16. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…

      Im totally lost where to spend 2ft. Maybe first time ever lol. Any ideas? 0.0 itb

      Martinez
      Robertson-Chilwell-Saiss
      Salah-Son-Grealish-JRod
      Kane-DCL-Maupay

      Forster, Mitchell, Lamptey, Bissouma

      1. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I did Robertson and maupay to Zouma and Ings.

    17. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Thoughts for 2FT?

      Reece James and Mitchell to Chilwell and Kilman

      Other Defenders are TAA, Lamptey and Saiss

      1. Lallana
        • 6 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        Too sideways. James a good pick still.

        Just Mitchell>Coufal is enough.

      2. Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 22 hours ago

        I’d be more worried about Saïss. I am.

        1. xHaTr
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          Thinking if I get kilman I'll always get a starter from the two of them?

    18. Wılly
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 22 hours ago

      Martinez
      Chilwell Dallas Lamptey (Lewis)
      Salah Sterling Son Bale Pulisic
      DCL Antonio* (Brewster)

      2 FT and haven't any clues on where I want to use them, I don't need Kane

        Any midfielder (max 5.5) worth switching Soucek out for? Or just keep

        1. Wılly
          • 7 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          Keep and play, good value

        2. FF Dirtbag
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 22 hours ago

          Keep no one else good enough in that bracket.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 22 hours ago

            Thanks both, this is what I was leaning towards

        Does anyone follow FPL stats closely? Mane was nowhere near close to rising on Thursday night but went up to 12.0 on Friday morning. Any ideas?
