The FPL impact of Aït-Nouri’s debut on Saïss, Kilman and Podence

Wolves 2-0 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m), Daniel Podence (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Pedro Neto (£5.5m)
  • Bonus points: Aït-Nouri x3, Nelson Semedo x2 (£5.5m), Neto x1

CRY WOLF

Fantasy Premier League managers finally got a definitive clue to Nuno Espirito Santo’s long-term plans for his defence this season in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

And, much to the dismay of the 22.4% in possession of Romain Saïss (£5.3m), the top-scoring FPL defender in 2020/21, we received confirmation that his role is diminishing.

The return to fitness of Marçal (£4.9m) and the arrival of Rayan Aït-Nouri (£5.0m) had been creeping up on Saïss for the last few weeks as he stood in at left wing-back.

But the emergence of Max Kilman (£4.2m) has caught him between a rock and a hard place considering that his old job has now been taken too. Crucially, against Palace, Saïss stayed on the Wolves bench. Helpful for avoiding one-point cameos but increasing the need for nearly a quarter of managers to draw on their bench. 

Of FPL defenders, only Trent Alexander-Arnold (33.2%) and the injured Tyrick Mitchell (25.7%) came into Gameweek 7 with more owners than Saïss, who actually became the most popular in that position among the top 10,000 managers on Friday night.

The fact that he is no longer guaranteed starts could mean a large number of managers already have one transfer booked in for Gameweek 8, especially those who feel they cannot bench a non-playing asset at £5.3m. Interestingly, 8.2% of all managers own both Saïss and Mitchell, although the latter is easier to keep on the bench for a few weeks.

Accordingly, we could see a flash-sale of the Wolves man in the coming days, especially as his team’s upcoming fixtures now take a turn for the worse from a defensive perspective anyway. Wolves travel to Leicester, Arsenal and Liverpool between now and Gameweek 11.

RAYAN ADVENTURES

Meanwhile, any hope that Saïss might somehow fight his way back to either left wing-back or centre-back were dashed by fantastic performances from both Aït-Nouri and Kilman against Crystal Palace.

Considering he is a natural left wing-back, it should come as no surprise that Aït-Nouri offered a much better balance to the Wolves side than Saïss did. He was also on-hand to blast Cheikhou Kouyaté‘s (£5.0m) first-half clearance into the bottom corner of Vicente Guaita‘s (£5.0m) net to give Wolves a well-deserved lead.

Bombing forward with intent and energy, the 19-year-old matched what Nelson Semedo (£5.5m) offered on the right and, as a result, Crystal Palace struggled to cope with how wide the pitch became.

“(Aït-Nouri) is brilliant. He’s come in and learned the role inside out. He’s really sharp. Turns you inside out with his bag of tricks. Tonight, I thought he was brilliant.” – Conor Coady

“(Aït-Nouri) played good. He has a lot of talent. There is a lot to improve on the defensive aspect and the shape of the team. But to score on your debut is great.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

DEAR PODENCE

Arguably, the chief beneficiaries of the impact Aït-Nouri had on the Wolves team were for Daniel Podence (£5.5m) and Pedro Neto (£5.5m), who each got their third attacking returns of the season in Gameweek 7.

Each wing-back taking up advanced positions, and offering energy and enthusiasm to track back, although, admittedly Aït-Nouri was not as good at that part of the job as Semedo (which Nuno picked up on, based on the above quote). Generally, the extra pace in these areas allowed the two wingers much more freedom to roam forward and cause problems against Palace.

Podence was particularly lively in the early stages, as Wolves finally rediscovered how to start games on the front foot. It is telling that Aït-Nouri’s 18th-minute goal was their first scored in the first half since Gameweek 1.

Then, after teeing up Leander Dendoncker (£4.5m) for a seventh-minute headed effort and watching Guaita palm away a 10th-minute curled strike, Podence finally rewarded the patience of his 3.6% ownership with a first attacking return since Gameweek 2. 

Netting his first goal since this same fixture last season, the former Olympiacos man ghosted in at the back post to slot under Guaita after Neto had found space behind Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) for a cross.

ON THE SPOT

The 482,570 Fantasy managers who signed Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) for Gameweek 7 were, naturally, disappointed to see him pick up just one point at Wolves.

The fact that Nuno’s men have kept four clean sheets from a possible seven now arguably makes his rather quiet display feel like more of an anomaly, considering he averaged 10 points per away game before Friday night.

With Leeds (home), Burnley (away), Newcastle (home) and West Bromwich Albion (away) up next, there is still plenty of reasons to be positive about Zaha’s credentials.

Not least because he might be back on penalties again after Luka Milivojevic‘s (£5.7m) short-lived return to the Crystal Palace side.

During the club captain’s absence, Zaha has taken on responsibility for spot-kicks. But, when the Eagles were awarded one in the first half at Molineux, it was, unsurprisingly, Milivojevic who prepared to take it.

In the end, the penalty was ruled out for an offside in the build-up but the fact the Serbian collected the ball and stood over it spoke volumes.

However, Zaha owners were handed something of a reprieve as Milivojevic was sent off for violent conduct in the closing stages. At present, his ban lasts three matches, which would, of course, be ideal for anyone wanting Zaha to take some more penalties.

That said, it would be worth keeping an eye on whether or not Palace decide to appeal the decision and try to shorten the suspension.

“I’m disappointed about the red card. I personally thought it was a fair challenge from Luka Milivojević. But the referee, unfortunately, had a different opinion.” – Roy Hodgson

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Kilman, Coady, Boly; Aït-Nouri, Neves, Dendoncker, Semedo; Neto (Moutinho 76′), Jiménez (F Silva 90+1′), Podence (Traoré 76′).

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne; Schlupp (Eze 65′), Riedewald, Milivojevic, Townsend (Ayew 72′); Zaha, Batshuayi (Benteke 84′).

  3. LC1

    Morning all!

    Would really, really appreciate some advice on my 2 FTs for next week;

    Martinez
    TAA Castagne(!) Mitchell (!) Saiss(!) James
    Son Salah Podence JRod 4.5
    Mitro Kane DCL

    2 FTs and 1.4 ITB.

    Happy to take a hit as clearly there is a lot that needs to be addressed!

    Thinking Saiss, Castagne and perhaps JRod / Podence out for a hit?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Ohhhhh Gary Macca!
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      No need to take Podence out as he keeps getting returns? JRod should be back after the international break so I’d leave him. I would address Saiss and Castagne

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Thanks bud.

      2. LC1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        He's only had 1 return in 5 games, Yeah you're probably right and shouldn't panic and rid of the whole team lol

    2. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah saiss and castagne out. How much does that give you?

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Saiss and Castagne out gives me 12.2 ITB but will ideally want cash itb to upgrade a mid or Mitrovic.

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah. I’d go cheaper in defence and look at bringing in a couple around 4.5.

      Hard to upgrade Mitro though. Anyone decent around that price you want?

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        May just get Antonio in a couple of weeks. Also tempting to downgrade to a 4.5 and boost up my midfield.. Decisions decisions!!

  4. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 28 days ago

    Do you think this def can cover me till gw20?
    Chilwell Coufal Dallas Lamptey Kilman
    *i will always play 3 of them

    I will have this def if i do:
    Robbo Saiss out
    Coufal Dallas in

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Yeah. It will be fine if Kilman keeps his place. I’d play Chilwell, Kilman and then whoever has the best fixture out of the others.

    2. Dexters Laboratory
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Should work 4 good defenders rotating for two positions. Chilwell every week

    3. Egyptian Giza
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      do we have the slightest idea when the doubles (for the first gameweek) will be scheduled? i mean, is it reasonable to save the wildcard for it?

      1. fr3d
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        There's a gap between GW17 and 18

      2. Arteta
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        It is but just use wildcard whenever you really need it.

    4. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 28 days ago

      Who is your Saiss autosub? Lamptey here.

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 28 days ago

        Castagne or Mitchell

        1. Right In The Stanchion
            2 months, 28 days ago

            Mitchell then.

            1. LC1
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              Mitchell wasn't even in the squad

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          Lamptey. Bit concerned. 1 pointer seems a lock in

        6. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 28 days ago

          Lamptey for me. Not expecting much, but much better to have that slight hope, than to have a Saiss cameo yesterday

        7. Gunner Boy

          Dunne - hoping for 2 goals and max bonus, what could go wrong?

            Best defender for 4.4? Wolves fixtures dry up a bit and Saiss isn't starting.

            1. Bury94
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              Kilman

            2. potatoace
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              At that price, Balbuena

              1. potatoace
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 28 days ago

                Assuming , you're saying you don't want wolves.

                1. Heiro
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 28 days ago

                  He's a midfielder mate

              2. Jellyfish
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 28 days ago

                Is Balbuena nailed?

                1. potatoace
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 28 days ago

                  Not certain, but he's played 90mins every game since gw2 and there are no injuries.

                  1. Jellyfish
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 28 days ago

                    Interesting. Considering Coufal as another budget WHU option

                    1. potatoace
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 28 days ago

                      I would pick Coufal if you had 4.5m . Balbuena is keeping Diop out.

                      1. Jellyfish
                        • 8 Years
                        2 months, 28 days ago

                        Agree

            3. jomikijiq
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 28 days ago

              Kilman

          • Right In The Stanchion
              2 months, 28 days ago

              West Ham without Antonio are a dead entity.

              I’m expecting a 4-0 win for Liverpool today with Salah scoring all 4

              1. Bury94
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 28 days ago

                Change Salah to Mane and that would be the stuff of dreams

                1. Right In The Stanchion
                    2 months, 28 days ago

                    Liverpool are getting two pens today mate

              2. Jellyfish
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 28 days ago

                Best replacement option for Saiss?

                My current back line is:
                Robbo Kilman Konsa Lamptey (Saiss)

                Thinking Cresswell or Coufal (both rotate well with Konsa(

                1. jomikijiq
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 28 days ago

                  Coufal/Masuaku
                  or Zouma

                2. Dexters Laboratory
                    2 months, 28 days ago

                    Zouma / Coufal / Ayling all great picks

                    1. Jellyfish
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 28 days ago

                      Thanks guys. I can afford Cresswell but want to save for investment further forward so liking Coufal

                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 28 days ago

                  What’s the verdict on Saiss guys? Are we selling?

                  1. fr3d
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 28 days ago

                    Well yeah obviously, he was always going to lose his spot. But I still might save 2FTs this week with the IB in mind

                  2. Do I Not Like Orange
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 28 days ago

                    It's a weird one for me. Absolute priority for me is shifting Mitro, but was initially planning on selling Trent too as it frees up more cash for a better Mitro replacement (say DCL rather than Wilson/Bamford). On that basis Saiss might squeak out an extra week.

                    1. Garth Marenghi
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 28 days ago

                      Reasonable

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  2 months, 28 days ago

                  Which is the better option?

                  1} Saïss > Coufal GW8
                  then Mitrović > Antonio GW9

                  or

                  2) Saïss > Cresswell GW8
                  rollover FT GW9

                      Cresswell on set-pieces is a bonus, particularly if I start him ahead of Kilman in a defensive 3

                      2 months, 28 days ago

                      1 if we get news of Antonio's fitness

                        I should have 6.6M in GW9 to replace Mitrović, so Wilson would also be an option.

                    Went Mané captain over Kane/son. Regretting it slightly now

                      Ballsy, I like it though. Good luck! If it pays off and Son and Kane keep quiet expect a big rise!

                      Anyone looking at PVA as a Saiss replacement? He was unlucky not to have 2 assists last night and look good going forward , Palace next 4 are reasonable enough to.

                        I'm very tempted. But I don't own Chilwell either who might be a bigger priority for me

                        Considering from GW9 onwards.

                        I’m really tempted, but it would be by upgrade on Kilman so I’m not sure. On the one hand, I feel I need to keep a starting Wolves defender I bought at 4.0. On the other hand, his fixtures are awful. Decisions, decisions...

                      For a -4? Should be able to ride out the weekend now there have been price changes

                      Trent, Saiss, Barnes -> Chilwell, Kilman, Rashford

                      Could swap Chilwell/Rash for Coufal/Bruno too

                          Chilwell Rashford I feel is the better option

                                Needs a rest, has been giving the ball away in important situations recently, and mount playing at cam is something Lampard will like to see happen today imo with ziyech and pulisic on the wings

                                    Don’t disagree with the form, but Frank’s spoken about the importance of building chemistry between the players.

                                    I’d expect a 4-3-3, with Mount and Havertz both starting as 8s.

                                      Fair enough, that’s a very real possibility

                              Dreamt that he scored in the bottom left corner! I'll take an assist and anything more a bonus

                            “ I personally thought it was a fair challenge from Luka Milivojević”

                            Hodgson is in need of a trip to Specsavers. That challenge was horrible.

                              He’s an old school manager with the mentality that he got the ball first (which he did), however, nowadays a tackle is dangerous regardless of ball first. Clear and obvious red

                            Had 2FT’s, already done Saiss > Coufal.. got 1.3m itb! Does this look good to go for GW 8? Want to bring City players in but not yet as fixtures are horrendous.

                            Saiss to PVA is very enticing. I reckon he takes pens over Zaha as well

                                  Yeah that’s the issue. Reasonable fixtures though from a defensive stand point

                                It’s 5.4 for a Palace defender. I’m not sure they’re worth it currently. He’ll obviously get the odd goal and assist though.

                                Semado - is he a hold or be proactive and move onto a west ham defender for additional funds to use on Zaha to puli/rash/Bruno

                                  I’d hold any Wolves defender (except Saiss). They look solid.

                                Best replacement for Saiis for up to 5.2?

                                    Coufal / Ayling / KWP all great picks

                                  Saiss out gives me an excuse to downgrade and upgrade Barnes to Rashford. Might be a blessing in disguise

                                      B although I like Coufal for the next few.
