West Brom defence improving since Bilic’s shift to back-four

Brighton 1-1 West Brom

  • Goals: Karlan Grant (£6.0m)
  • Own Goals: Jake Livermore (£4.8m)
  • Assists: Callum Robinson (£5.5m)
  • Bonus points: None

Baggies Boost

Fantasy Premier League managers will have to exercise caution when viewing West Bromwich Albion as an opponent for their players in the coming weeks.

The Baggies have made significant improvements to their backline in the last two matches, during which time experienced defender Branislav Ivanovic (£4.5m) has made his debut and settled into the side.

While the former Chelsea man was involved in the error that led to Brighton’s opener on Monday night, the truth is that, outside of that own goal, Slaven Bilic’s were not overwhelmingly tested at the Amex Stadium. To the Croatian’s encouragement, it was the second match in a row where that was the case.

Having conceded 13 goals in the first four matches of 2020/21, an average of 3.25 per game, West Brom have now let in just one since Gameweek 5 (0.5 per game).

Bilic has achieved such a feat with a change in shape. He experimented with a back-five between Gameweeks 1 to 4 but has found much more success building a four-man defence around Ivanovic since the most recent international break.

That has seen Kyle Bartley (£4.5m) and Dara O’Shea (£4.4m) drop out of the team, Ivanovic paired first with Ahmed Hegazi (£4.3m) at centre-back and, following the Egyptian’s loan move to Al-Ittihad, then Semi Ajayi (£4.8m).

Obviously, we have to apply a caveat to these findings, not least that they were recorded using a small sample size of two matches.

Furthermore, it has not gone unnoticed that the first of the two periods discussed pitted West Brom against much more potent attacks in Leicester, Everton, Chelsea and Southampton while Burnley and Brighton are arguably easier opposition.

We are sure that these are important factors, although the role of a new formation and addition of Ivanovic’s experience cannot be ignored.

And the fact that West Brom are capable of avoiding a thrashing at the hands of so-called lesser opposition is still something for Fantasy managers to consider. Many of us banked on the likes of Neal Maupay (£6.6m), Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) and Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m) for Gameweek 6, thinking West Brom were whipping boys.

Well, it is now clear that the Baggies should not always carry around that tag, something which is sure to frustrate those with attackers from Fulham, Spurs and Manchester United, their next three opponents.

Running on Lamptey

For all of Lamptey’s early-season promise, the Brighton right-back is seriously struggling to live up to his potential as a Fantasy asset.

While nobody denies the raw talent he possesses, especially with the frequency of his advanced runs, Lamptey does appear to be suffering from Brighton’s own struggles at the back.

The Seagulls have largely been clean sheet nearly-men in 2020/21, never looking overly porous and yet still unable secure defensive returns.

Brighton were in relative control of their Monday night meeting with West Brom, even as late as the 78th minute when Graham Potter replaced attacking midfielder Trossard with the more combative, defensive option Steven Alzate (£4.5m).

But that did not stop the Baggies feeling their way into the game in the closing stages, with Matheus Pereira (£6.0m) twice going close before Karlan Grant (£6.0m) rifled home Callum Robinson‘s (£5.5m) 83rd-minute cross.

As a result, Potter’s men still have just one clean sheet this season, conceding an average of 1.8 per game.

Whether Brighton are proving unfortunate or simply lack concentration in key moments, their situation seems somewhat ominous ahead of a trip to Spurs in Gameweek 7.

As for Lamptey’s attacking prowess, that remains unchallenged, considering he registered more touches in the final third than any other Brighton player on Monday night (26).

However, his run of bad luck simply refuses to end. Not forgetting his withdrawal at half-time of Brighton’s only clean sheet of the season so far, Lamptey owners watched as his 40th-minute cross/shot was cleared by Ivanovic into the unwitting path of Jake Livermore (£4.8m) for an own goal, thus robbing the right-back of any attacking return.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-2-1): Ryan; Burn, Webster, Veltman; March (Mac Allister 69′), Bissouma, White, Lamptey; Trossard (Alzate 78′), Lallana (Groß 60′); Maupay.

West Bromwich Albion XI (4-2-3-1): Johnstone; Townsend, Ajayi, Ivanovic, Furlong; Livermore (C Robinson 62′); Diangana (Edwards 62′), Krovinovic, Gallagher, M Pereira; Grant (M Phillips 83′).

    Can Brighton win against Spurs ?
    Lamptey deserving 15 pointer...

    1. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Don't see them keeping a CS. Lamps might get an attacking return

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        and tbh after watching the second half against WBA, do not see them scoring much either

  2. Tony Martial

    Best Aguero replacement?

    Have Kane already.

      Vardy, DCL, JImenez...

      Ings or Jimenez - set and forget

    Need to get rid of Coleman and Holding both with hamstrings which will be 3 / 4 wks .
    10.4 ITB
    Currently on Creswell and James.
    Any other options I am missing?

    1. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Coufal seems value if you want to save the 0.5 on Cresswell. Could then get Chilwell who appears far more nailed than James

      1. BHA_Seagull
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Is it worth taking the hit for Barnes to Pulisic?
        Can wait but worried about the price rise as have exact fund currently.

        1. Going Home
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          I wouldn’t. Give Barnes another week and there are other options if Pulisic rises (Zaha, Grealish, Hamez etc)

  4. Going Home
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 17 hours ago

    McCarthy | 4.0
    Justin | Chilwell | Lamptey | Konsa | Saiss
    Salah | Son | Hamez | grealish | Jorginho
    DCL | Kane | Wilson

    £1.3itb 2FT

    Justin -> Coufal seem a decent change for the mid term? Or is there a fire I’m missing?

  5. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 17 hours ago

    Ranked 2.8 million 🙁 - Feel like my team is good, but it’s just not working at the moment. Surely got to save though?

    Martinez
    TAA Saiss Ayling
    Salah Son(C) Hamez Pulisic
    Watkins Kane(vc) DCL

    Steer, Biss, Mitchell, Johnson.

    1. NULL-X-VOID
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Never liked Watkins, Bammy is a better option. Other than that your team is sound. Mitchell and Johnson need to go tho

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Yeah I’m regretting picking Watkins. Giving him another week.

        Will deal with Mitchell as well soon. But don’t mind having Johnson rot there all season

        1. NULL-X-VOID
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 17 hours ago

          your Mitchell issue would be made clear in the next GW, as Clyne is fit and so is PVA

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 17 hours ago

            True. Other than that. Reckon I should save the FT?

            Losing patience with TAA. He needs to deliver!

            1. NULL-X-VOID
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 17 hours ago

              His role has been changed with the attacking progression shifting to the left flank. He would still give attacking returns, but for consistently as Pool are not going to have a lot of CS.

              1. Make United Great Again
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 17 hours ago

                Exactly. Not worth the funds, even Chilwell looks a better pick than him now..

      2. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Agree about Watkins.
        Mitchell you may as well leave until he is actually dropped, as they have some decent fixtures coming up so would see what happens with him first.

        1. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 17 hours ago

          I’m warming to the idea of selling Watkins for free.

          No other pressing issues and I just don’t fancy him.

  6. TeddiPonza
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 17 hours ago

    What to do?

    Martinez (Forster)
    Saiss KWP Justin (Mitchell Lamptey)
    Salah Sterling Son Podence (Burke)
    Kane DCL Jimi

    0,1m in bank 2 FT

    A. Jimi and Pod to Zaha and Bamford
    B. Burke to Bissouma and assess Wolves assets next week
    C. Saiss to Kilman (to free up funds)
    D. Something else

  7. NULL-X-VOID
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 17 hours ago

    Don't you guys think having 2FTs is more of a headache than 1FT when you do not have a planned transfer?

    1. Going Home
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      I would love to roll again this week (team in post above). Hence Justin to Coufal (who would be benched this week) as an option

    2. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      you can always save one

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Ik, but if you don't have transfer planned and then you feel your team is good, that's one FT wasted.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Can't recall the last time I had 2 FTs... thought I was set to save a FT to get to the holy grail of 2 FTs and then Digne got a red card.

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        haha that was unlucky, one of the worst red card decision I have seen

      2. HippY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 16 hours ago

        I've had 2 FT three times so far this season lol

    4. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Use the luxury of that one transfer and save the other

  8. Parsnips
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Anyone know what I should do with Werner? I was thinking of swapping him with Bamford.

      1. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Wouldn't do that

    • Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      Repost(sorry)

      Martinez
      Robo Semedo Lamptey Mitchell Dunne
      Son Salah Foden Mahrez Burke
      Ings DCL Jimi

      1 FT and 1.5 itb
      1. Save
      2. Lamptey to Chilwell
      3. Mahrez to Grealish
      4. Jimi + Mahrez to Kane + Grealish for a hit
      5. Jimi + Mahrez to Bamford + Sterling for a hit

      Please suggest.

      1. Tshelby
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        3

      2. Going Home
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Mahrez to Zaha (as a grealish owner who will swap him to Zaha next week)

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 17 hours ago

          Zaha better than

          1. Going Home
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 16 hours ago

            Zaha > Grealish yeah. And then also do Jimi to Kane. That hit will pay for itself in a week or two imo

      3. Going Home
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 17 hours ago

        Just seen you’ve no Kane. Get him immediately too! However you do it and at any cost

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 17 hours ago

          That’s what I think

    • Bobby_Baggio
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 17 hours ago

      In my draft league would you swap any of these or keep as they are:

      Brewster > Batshuayi or Che Adams

      Soucek > Jota

      Lamptey > Cresswell

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years

        first and last 100% (adams on first one)

        your team is solid, lose Mane or Salah for Kane and you will move nicely through the rankings, I am in a similar both and usually a top 50k finisher year or year.

        Odd start but you will climb rapidly

        1. Bury94
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 17 hours ago

          Can't justify dropping Mane when he plays WHU at home next!

            While I agree with the principle, H v WHU isn’t the gimme fixture we all seem to think it is

    • KAPTAIN KANE

      "The former Chelsea defender also compares favourably against such colleagues when we consider minutes per tackle won and minutes per CBI."

      He ranks 3rd out of the 4 for CBI. Didn't realize that meant favourably?

      1. NULL-X-VOID
        • 6 Years

        Kilman would start

      2. No Professionals

        who knows, not many would have had Reguilon down for a benching this week.

      3. Boly Would

        I wouldn't rely on Struijk, I think he might start Shackleton

        Like many on here, I'm languishing in the millions with the worst OR I can remember. But I don't hate my team! Obviously a few issues (Mitro, Pickford, Barnes, Reg) but hoping to hold out until GW9 to WC to take advantage of the fixture turn there. Anything you would do here with my 1FT? Or is it WC time now?

        Pickford
        TAA, Robbo, Regilion, Ayling
        Pulisic, Salah, Barnes, Son
        Kane, Mitrovic

          You might not hate your team but I do 😛

          Pickford, TAA, Reguilon, Barnes, Mitrovic, maybe even Pulisic all need to go imo.

          Stick with your plan though. Hold on until GW 10 and pray that Liverpool keep clean sheets.

            Thanks for the input! Agreed about all the players you mentioned, they will be shipped out soon for sure. Trouble is that most of them have good fixtures: Mitro has WBA, Reg (if he plays!) has BHA, Pickford has Newcastle.

            I think I might even save FT this week and use 2FTs next week to do something like TAA + Mitrovic to Cresswell and Antonio in time for the Fulham fixture. Then WC for GW9 and start afresh.

          Jesus that's a lot of money in defence. Downgrade any of Pickford, TAA or Robbo and get rid of Mitro.

            I never really thought about it that way, but I do have a lot of funds tied up in defense now that you say it. Probably part of the reason why I've gotten such a bad start lol.

            Can't wait to get rid of Pickford and Mitro in particular.

              The double Pool defence made sense at the start of the season but you really need to abondon that one in my opinion.

                Yes, I think I'm going to give it one more week and then swap out TAA before the City fixture.

          You’re fine. Save this week and then maybe do something involving a TAA downgrade and 2 of Barnes, Pulisic and Mitro next week.

          After this week soucek will be ok in your starting 11 imo.

        Just realised guy leading my ML and whom I'm 142 pts behind has used all his chips. Forgot he used TC Doherty gw1 lol.

          And he hasn't had Salah all season either.

          TC Doherty in GW1....

          How is this person 142 points ahead of you? 🙁

            Capt right almost every wk. 124pts on wk two with Kane capt and Son.

            A lot of this game is luck.

        Digne to Chilwell seems like the obvious move for me. But that gives me triple Chelsea assets. (Pulisic & Werner the others).
        Only other premium option I like the look of is Regulion with two good fixtures before I WC in GW9.

        Any other options anybody else have in mind?

        1. Miguel Sanchez

          I'm making this move after the Champions League games and hopefully Friday presser. Wouldn't overthink it too much, could go a week early on someone like Cresswell if you like.

          1. Your Man With The Hair
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 16 hours ago

            Which are you going for Chilwell or Regulion?

              Chilwell

        2. Puntillimon

          Good move, their fixtures are nice. Would be ok to overload

        Is it worth taking the hit for Barnes to Pulisic?
        Can wait but worried about the price rise as have exact fund currently.

        Does anyone know what's going to happen with the schedule in January?

        All the FA Cup cup games in the 4th round are scheduled at the same time as the Premier League games (wtf), then there's the split game week thing with 18a & 18b. Is it just going to be a massive blank GW, followed by a monster DGW?

        I was considering a GW12 free hit. City and Liverpool both play Fulham and West Brom in a short period around GW12, so a GW12 FH would allow me to go hard in those fixtures with Mane and Salah double ups and Sterling and KDB double ups - could be a huge point swing. But it will probably get me points to use it to navigate the January clusterf**k, right?

        1. Your Man With The Hair
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          I can't decide what I'm doing with this week's FT never mind think about GWs in January! lol

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          That's so far away I'm not even gonna think about it yet.

          1. Giggs Boson
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 16 hours ago

            If I don't use a FH in GW12, that affects my transfers this week.

            So the January hell is a problem right now for me, in a way.

              Nm, I'll just take hits. There were other issues too that week but I'll stomach them.

          I recall Ben Crellin saying that half the teams would play for one BGW, the rest later on? Not sure though. I'd look through his Twitter account for more or wait a few GWs for more info.

        Do we all agree that Chilwell is the best premium defender for the foreseeable? Gonna ditch Digne for him.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          Yeah, Chelsea look a lot more solid with Silva and Mendy in the team

          1. No Professionals
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 16 hours ago

            until mendy passes one in to his own net

            1. No Professionals
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 16 hours ago

              but yes, chilwell looks a very good pick.

            2. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Yeah that was odd, might have had something to do with the excess rain but still was pretty shocking.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          I think so.

          Considering him over Robertson.

        3. cuppatea78
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          Yeah I think so. I'm gonna get rid of TAA and get Chilwell in this week after the CL games.

        Hey all, good evening.

        Who would you choose to play for last spot in the 11 out of these 4:
        A) Mitchell (wol)
        B) KWP (avl)
        C) Burke (MCI)
        D) Soucek (liv)

      • cuppatea78
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 16 hours ago

        Who would you say is the best long term replacement for TAA?

        1. Your Man With The Hair
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          Zaha 😉

      • Jack Burton
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 hours ago

        Robbo to Chilwell then Podence to Grealish is tempting me for a minus 4

      • fpork
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 16 hours ago

        Got 2 FT. Any transfers you would consider? The only one I am unsure of is Rodriguez, but not sure who to ship him out for? Zaha just feels wrong.

        Martínez (Martin)
        Chilwell, Robertson, Walker-Peters (Lamptey) (Branthwaite)
        Son, Salah, Grealish, Rodríguez (Soucek)
        Maupay, Kane, Calvert-Lewin

        1. Going Home
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 16 hours ago

          If you have to burn one, maybe Coufal into your defence could be a move. Then Grealish to Zaha next week for Palace’s Excellent fixtures Maybe?

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 16 hours ago

        Dunne to Kilman is a waste of a transfer right?

        Team is:
        Martinez, Stee
        TAA, Robertson, Saiss, Mitchell, Dunne
        Salah, Son, Havertz, Foden, Podence
        Kane, DCL, Brewster

        0.1 ITB

          Well, one of them starts and the other one doesn’t...
