Why there is concern for Wolves’ FPL attackers despite another Jimenez goal

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 1-1 NEWCASTLE UNITED

  • Goals: Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) | Jacob Murphy (£4.9m)
  • Assists: None | Callum Wilson (£6.5m)
  • Bonus: Jimenez 3, Murphy x2, Romain Saiss (£5.2m) x 1

Newcastle United repeated their Gameweek 3 trick of wrestling a scarcely deserved point from the clutches of a miserable defeat at Molineux on Sunday.

Jacob Murphy‘s (£4.9m) late free-kick brought Steve Bruce’s side level, ten minutes after Raul Jimenez (£8.5m) looked to have given Wolverhampton Wanderers all three points with his fourth goal of the campaign.

While not quite a bogey team, the Magpies have proven to be a tough nut to crack for Wolves since their promotion back to the top flight: this was the fourth league meeting in a row between the two sides that has ended 1-1.

ATTACK HAMMERED

The supposed fixture swing for Wolves in Gameweek 3 hasn’t led to a glut of goals, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side scoring on just three occasions in the last four matches – despite facing the likes of Fulham and Newcastle in that time.

After a promising start on Sunday, the game became a bit of a non-event and it underscored an ongoing issue with Wolves’ attack, particularly against the also-rans of the division.

Twelve of Wolves’ 16 shots against Newcastle, including Jimenez’s goal, came from outside the box, with the hosts not really creating a single gilt-edged chance all match.

Asked about whether other players bar his Mexican striker should be sharing the workload on the goalscoring front, Santo said:

Yes, of course. We want all the players to score the goals, of course. I want every player to score 30 goals if possible. That’s what I’m trying to work on, trying to improve.

We had a lot of shots, not all of them on target. Let’s try to improve on the final delivery and the clinical moment of shooting on goal, making the keeper work. We didn’t test the keeper too many times, not too many shots on target.

Perhaps the Gameweek 3 thrashing at West Ham was a turning point.

Since then, Santo has proceeded with caution in tactics and personnel: Adama Traore (£6.4m) hasn’t started a single game, the defensive-minded Leander Dendoncker (£4.9m) has started all three in central midfield and centre-half Romain Saiss (£5.2m), admittedly through necessity at first, has been deployed at wing-back.

Wolves have seldom battered sides since their return to top flight and, despite his early-season words about wanting more goals and giving his players “more freedom”, it could be that the defeat at the London Stadium was a reminder to Santo that his success so far has been predicated on solidity further back.

The loss of Diogo Jota (£6.3m) and Matt Doherty (£5.8m) has also deprived Wolves of two sources of goals, with their replacements impressing but so far not offering that same threat in front of goal.

PODENCE-IAL ROTATION RISK

Those Fantasy managers who moved for Daniel Podence (£5.5m) ahead of the aforementioned fixture swing have seen little for their investment, with the budget midfielder blanking again on Sunday.

The Wolves winger started the game very promisingly, chancing his arm from distance twice in the opening 10 minutes and forcing Karl Darlow (£5.0m) into one of just two saves he had to make all match.

A lovely bit of interplay beween the hosts’ front three led to another blocked Podence shot just after half-time, with the Portugal international then setting up both Jimenez and Pedro Neto (£5.0m) for chances of their own.

It all counted for nought though as he was hooked not long after the hour-mark for the third game running and the clamour for Traore’s return may be getting louder, with Podence potentially most at risk.

That’s because the equally-impressive Neto has been an ever-present starter this season and it’s perhaps significant that it has been Podence who has been hooked first in each of the last three Gameweeks, with Traore taking his place on two of those occasions.

SITTING ON DEFENCE

Wolves were already joint-top for clean sheets heading into Sunday’s match but they would have had an outright lead had Murphy’s free-kick not found its way past a poorly formed wall and an equally culpable Rui Patricio (£5.5m) in the dying minutes.

The visitors had created next to nothing before that, with their total of five efforts on goal the lowest of any side in Gameweek 6 so far.

Santo said of his side’s defensive display:

We were solid and didn’t allow chances to Newcastle, we were solid on that part. But, of course, we’re upset.

All the game we were in control, managing well. It was a good goal, but it was disappointing to make a mistake in the final moments of the game. The ball cannot go on that side of the wall. The set-up was not the correct one.

There is little concern about the competency of the Wolves backline (they have banked 12 clean sheets in their last 20 league games) but there may be a degree of uncertainty about the personnel within it.

Conor Coady (£5.0m) and Willy Boly (£5.5m) are nailed at the back and Nelson Semedo (£5.5m) looks fairly secure at present, but the left-hand-side of the defence is tougher to call.

Saiss cheekily banked a clean sheet and a bonus point thanks to his 68th-minute withdrawal with the score at 0-0, with that haul catapulting him back to the top of the FPL points table among Fantasy defenders.

The substitution itself might be a medium-term cause for concern, however, with Saiss understandably offering little in the way of attacking threat from left wing-back and replaced by a more natural fit in the shape of Marcal (£4.9m).

Wing-backs have been crucial to Wolves’ set-up under Santo and if Marcal is recalled this Friday, which is by no means a given, then it could be Saiss and Max Kilman (£4.1m) who are competing for that third centre-half spot alongside Coady and Boly.

The decision would have been an easier one to make had it not been for Kilman’s recent displays, with the former futsal star again turning in a solid showing on Sunday and denying Callum Wilson (£6.5m) with one fine challenge early on.

RAFA RETURNS

With Newcastle short of numbers in the middle of the park – a half-fit Isaac Hayden (£4.9m) only on the bench and Jonjo Shelvey (£5.4m) now set to be sidelined for a long period after groin surgery – Steve Bruce turned to the tactics of his predecessor for this match.

The resultant display was, not for the first time this season, predictably short on attacking threat, with Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.3m) cutting a frustrated figure despite given a free role and eventually taken off.

It did lead to a more solid defensive display following the 4-1 loss against Manchester United, however, with Wolves comfortably kept at bay for the most part and Jimenez only breaking the deadlock from distance.

It remains to be seen if the Magpies again set out with a defence-first approach to stop Everton in Gameweek 7, with Bruce explaining after the game that he wants his side to be “hard to beat” while also evolving from the Rafael Benitez era:

We didn’t have any natural midfield players who want to win the ball back today. We have to defend better than we have done of late, we have to be hard to beat.

We are trying to find a balance to the team, it won’t happen overnight but we are trying to change the way we play.


Wolverhampton Wanderers XI: Patricio, Kilman, Coady, Boly, Saiss (Marcal de Oliveira 68′), Neves (Moutinho 83′), Dendoncker, Semedo, Neto, Podence (Traore 68′), Jimenez.

Newcastle United XI: Darlow, Murphy, Lewis, Fernandez, Lascelles (Carroll 88′), Schar, Almiron, Hendrick, Fraser (Joelinton 78′), Saint-Maximin (S Longstaff 78′), Wilson.

    At least if jimi scores he’s more or less guaranteed baps

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      He doesn't score enough for his price though. And, I could live with it if he was missing lots of chances and you can feel a big haul is imminent - but at the moment, I feel he is doing all he can in a side that just isn't creating enough chances.

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

        He missed 3 pretty good chances yesterday with awful scuffed shots

    2. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      They just look so unthreatening, it really is a painful watch.

    3. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      And he'll keep doing it all season. People will jump between 6-8m strikers chasing points, but Jimi scoring 17 points in two weeks when not playing well is, for me, a positive 😉 Also created a bit yesterday - the lack of that was my prior concern.

      I think Wolves will settle and improve in the coming weeks too.

      He's still on for a 200 point season in my books

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        This right here.

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        yes 4 from 6 is a 25 goal season so not a bad start at all.

        my concern would be the quality of chances, he's getting. He's a wicked deflection and a horrible bit of goalkeeping away from 4 blanks in a row. I know that isn't how it works, but it's indicative of Wolves' attacking threat right now.

  2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    Is the bench ok? Also, who to captain - Salah, Sterling or Son?

    Martinez
    TAA James Dallas
    Salah Sterling Son Foden
    DCL Ings Bamford

    Steere Podence Mitchell Lamptey

    1. djoker_nole
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Son/Salah

    2. Hig1990
      • 2 Years

      Anyone for Hamez to Zaha?

      1. Earn your Spurs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I've not had Hamez yet, only Zaha, but had planned to add Hamez. It feels like there is room for both if Hamez is fit

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        God no.

        I'm sticking with Hamez for the time being (unless injured of course)

        I know the minute I sign Zaha the pens will dry up and he will go back to being the frustrating player I've owned in the past

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Not ready to jump ship yet.

        Plus I wouldn't be completely surprised if Zaha blanks against Wolves like a lot of players do!

      4. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Not with Fulham and Newcastle coming up

      5. Hig1990
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        You are all sharing the same thoughts as myself. I too have been a frustrated Zaha owner in the past and hence haven't fallen into the trap again yet....lol GL all

      Repost from old article ...

      At Palace the talk was that Mitchell would lose his place once PVA was back, but when PVA came on as sub vs Fulham it was to replace Clyne. Does that mean Mitchell has done enough to secure a place or something else?

      Also any news on Ferguson coming back? I'd expected him after the break

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

        We'll find out next match. Maybe he plays rb

      2. Joey Tribbiani
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Common sense says this:
          Clyne hasnt played football for a long time, to get 70 mins out of him was good, probably the reason for that sub.
          No news on Ferguson + Clyne signing for them makes it seem like Ferguson wont be back for a long time.

      3. Kristobal
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Most nailed on for Palace?

        A) Batshuayi
        B) Ayew

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

          A

        2. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Avoid both imo!

          Zaha is the only one I’d consider

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

        Chilwell, ASM & Bamford or Kilman, Zaha and Bamford?

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

          B. Because CSs are by no means guaranteed and Zaha is far better pick than ASM

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

        Afternoon all. Any early ideas what to do with my FT here?

        2FT 0.5itb
        Martinez
        Robbo, Chilwell, Dallas
        Salah, Son, Pulisic, Grealish
        Kane (C), DCL, Maupay
        (Forster) (KWP, Stephens, Braithwaite)

        Thinking of
        A) Maupay > Bamford/ Antonio (if fit) (roll FT)
        B) Maupay, Braithwaite > Bamford/ Antonio, Kilman (2FT)

        Cheers!

        1. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          A) with Bamford. But, I'll be honest with you, it doesn't excite me at all.

          Trouble with Antonio is that he has Pool next (and of course might be injured anyway).

          Maybe roll transfer and re-assess next week would be be what I'd do

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

            I could easily do nothing but I’ve got 2FT and don’t want to burn one. Maybe just Braithwaite > Kilman?

            1. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Sorry I missed that part - yep bring in Kilman.

              Rest of your team is looking great I think!

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

                As with yours my teams been looking between fine and great most weeks but not delivering the goods!

                Maybe Kilman is the move but not sure if I’d start him (vs CRY) over Dallas (LEI)...

                1. thegaffer82
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  I'd start Kilman over Dallas (just about anyway).

                  Of course, he may be dropped to accommodate Marcal at LWB and Saiss back to CB.

                  But at this stage, and with a FT to burn, it's worth it I think

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

                    Let’s see what Maupay does for me tonight (if anything)!

      6. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It's looking like a good week to avoid hits and do a bit of housekeeping (this will be the first week I haven't taken a hit apart from WC week).

        Sitting at almost 3mil rank but no need to panic I reckon. Team looks alright I think, just need a massive slice of luck and I'll be back on the right track.

        So, what move are we thinking chaps?

        .................Martinez
        ......TAA* - Saiss - Justin*
        Salah - Son - Pulisic - J-Rod - Podence*
        .........(K)ane - DCL
        Bench - Brewster - Lamptey - Mitchell
        1FT & 0.7 ITB

        a) Justin > Koufal (poor fixture this week when I need him though!)
        b) Justin > Ayling
        c) Podence > Barkley
        d) TAA > Chilwell
        e) TAA & Podence > Chilwell & Grealish (-4)
        f) Justin & Podence > Ayling & Barkley (-4)
        g) Other suggestion?

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

          Agree on my part, too many questions and I'm not sure I have the answers. Banking the FT and reassessing later.

          I'd say the same for you.

        2. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Save for sure. The team is fine and 2FT is always good

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            It's just Justin away against Leeds is making my DF look weak this week. Plus, his position is under threat once Leic injuries clear up.

            Ayling in this week would sort all that out

      7. Earn your Spurs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Will Kilman keep his place now Marcal is back? Nuno took off Saiss from the failed wing back position for Marcal but was that just so he didnt disrupt the central pairing midway through the game? Or has Kilman now got Saiss' place?

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

          Read the article?

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I think this is just one to watch and wait. I can't see Nuno telling uis directly in the pressers.

          My feeling is that Nuno really likes Saiss, but it just isn't working at LWB for him or for Wolves. So, I guess he will play Marcal and bench Kilman.

          But, perhaps worth mentioning that I'm an optimistic Saiss owner!

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

          We'll find out next match. It's a guess for everyone right now. Personally hope he starts for palace at least. I'm removing him after that anyways

        4. Joey Tribbiani

          2FT 2.4ITB, any suggestions?

          Thinking of Pereira to Grealish and save

          Mccarthy, Steer
          Robbo, Saiss, KWP, Mitchell, Ferguson
          Salah, Bruno, Son, Podence, Pereira
          DCL, Werner, Davis

        6. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          If you like talisman theory, you’ll love Jimenez and keep him.

          Involved in 66% of their goals so far and not a single penalty yet. So even if their games are low-scoring, good chance he’s involved.

        7. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          "Yes, of course. We want all the players to score the goals, of course. I want every player to score 30 goals if possible. That’s what I’m trying to work on, trying to improve.

          We had a lot of shots, not all of them on target. Let’s try to improve on the final delivery and the clinical moment of shooting on goal, making the keeper work. We didn’t test the keeper too many times, not too many shots on target."

          LOL @ Nuno for lying 😆
          They are still defend first team unlike what he's suggesting so many times this season

          Watching the last United games, I thought Rashford was really sharp and dangerous. But it is enough to make him a better option than Fernandes although he is 1M less ?!

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

            He's a good option. Not better than Bruno. But he doesn't have to be.

          2. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Yep. Rashford is *starting* to look like he's going to be fantasy gold.

            I think he will make a mockery of his price tag this year.

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

            Penalties may make Bruno but both should be great value. I'd like to get Rashford in GW9.

          Martinez, Peacock-Farrell

          TAA, Saiss, Lamptey, Taylor, Mitchell

          What do we think about the jimi to ings transfer ? Assuming you already have dcl and Kane...

          Seems sidewise but ings has 2 great fixtures and can see a couple of tough games for jimi with palace and Leicester and even Southampton after that doesn’t look great

            Waste of a transfer - both Ings and Jimenez, with a full season, will score around the 20 goals mark and get around 200 points. Probably better upside moves elsewhere in your team.

          Did Sterling and Watkins to Kane and Zaha for a hit.

          Wanted to catch the price rise

          Feeling pretty good about it

          Pulisic > KDB
          OR
          James > KDB

          Thoughts?

          Every time i bring Zaha in he scores a double digit then blanks for several gweeks.

          Do i need to ship him out soon after getting the 13 points?

          Hey guys. HELP! Should i replace Digne or upgrade Dunn to Kilman? If Digne who to pick out of these lot? Thanks heaps

          A) Chilwell
          B) Zouma
          C) Saiss

            Wait on the outcome of Everton’s appeal. If successful Dunne to Kilman seems reasonable.

          2. De Gea is GOAT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            very good shout. Completely forgot about the appeal. They should definitely win it as well. If i was to take Digne out who du think is the best replacement? Thanks

          Is Podence to Neto too sideways?

          I have 2 FTs and 0 ITB and not really not sure what to do. I was expecting Mitchell to be dropped at weekend so was thinking of doing Mitchell to Kilman but now I'm undecided. Thoughts? If I get Kilman it won't be a Wolves double up for long as looking at Saiss to Masuaku in week 8.

            I think Mitchell’s days are numbered so I’d do that and carry a FT

              Yeah, I was thinking that too but what got me wondering was that PVA replaced Ward instead Mitchell so is there a possibility Mitchellm plays right back?

          Saw United want Haaland. They have such a good attack with Rash, Tony, Bruno, now Cavani, Greenwood. Why doesn't Ole invest in their leaky defense ffs

            Haaland won’t go to a team that will be in the Europa league

          Your help is needed please - how can I salvage any from this team apart from selling Aguero

          Son Grealish Havertz Lookman Trossard

            Sell Aguero (sorry). No issue with the rest of the Team IMO. Not a big fan of Trossard or Havertz but can be addressed later.
