Ziyech the catalyst as Chelsea FPL assets appeal in defence and attack

Burnley 0-3 Chelsea

  • Goals: Hakim Ziyech (£7.9m), Kurt Zouma (£5.1m), Timo Werner (£9.3m)
  • Assists: Tammy Abraham (£7.2m), Mason Mount (£6.8m), Ziyech
  • Bonus points: Ziyech x3, Zouma x2, Werner x1

THE ZIYECH FACTOR

Hakim Ziyech‘s (£7.9m) first Premier League start for Chelsea appears to have helped them finally unlock top gear this season.

The Moroccan playmaker has been conspicuous by his absence thus far, with the Blues labouring to their results far too often for those invested in their attackers.

At Burnley, Chelsea were a transformed outfit with Ziyech on the right-hand side of the front-three, hinting that they can do some damage in upcoming meetings with Sheffield United and Newcastle.

“We’re really impressed and really excited (with Ziyech). His work rate off the ball, which someone might not expect of a winger with technical ability, we saw today. Compared to what we had last season, he offers something different.” – Frank Lampard

Taking Wednesday’s 4-0 win at Krasnodar, the former Ajax man already has three attacking returns in his first two starts for Chelsea, netting in Russia and getting a goal and assist against Burnley.

Frank Lampard is still managing Ziyech’s minutes following an early-season injury, Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.8m) coming on in the 73rd minute, but even at this early stage, he could prove a simple solution to frustrated Christian Pulisic (£8.4m) owners.

CHRISTIAN SOLDIER

The 4.2% invested in Pulisic proved to be exceptionally unfortunate in Gameweek 7 as he sustained an injury in the warm-up at Burnley.

The American international was set to make a third consecutive Premier League start since returning from a previous issue, but now faces weeks on the sidelines again.

“He felt a little feeling in his hamstring. We tried to manage him in the week. We’ll have to see how he’s doing in the next 24 hours. Hopefully short-term, we’re talking weeks. It’s a minor feeling that he had.” – Frank Lampard

That stroke of misfortune for Pulisic was exactly the opposite for owners of Timo Werner (£9.3m), who still sits in 20.7% of teams worldwide.

He had been handed a first Premier League benching at Burnley but came into the side to occupy Pulisic’s left-sided position in the front-three.

That led to the German international’s third Premier League goal of the season and sets him up for a potentially profitable meeting with Sheffield United in Gameweek 8.

As we highlighted in our analysis of Manchester City’s latest win, the Blades have given up more chances on their right-hand side than any other this season. Accordingly, João Cancelo (£5.4m) was afforded the freedom of Bramall Lane in Gameweek 6 occupying a similar on-field position to what Werner could next Saturday. And, even if the former RB Leipzig man is chosen to lead the line ahead of Abraham, we know tends to drift in that direction, anyway.

ON THE MENDY

Keeping a clean sheet in their 3-0 win at Turf Moor, Chelsea’s defence is quickly becoming a key source of investment – especially when we consider how rare shut-outs seem to be for big-six clubs right now.

Naturally, the signing of Edouard Mendy (£5.0m) has had a significant impact in this area, as has Thiago Silva (£5.5m) bedding himself into the team.

In the three Premier League matches that they have started together, they have kept a clean sheet in each one.

And, most importantly, the underlying statistics from those games have also been encouraging in terms of sustainability. Chelsea have conceded just one big chance in the matches that Mendy and Silva started together, compared to giving up eight in the four that they did not.

With Sheffield United boasting the second-worst goal conversion rate in the Premier League this season, another clean sheet seems likely in Gameweek 8, while no team has registered fewer shots than their Gameweek 9 opponent Newcastle.

ZOUM CALL

While Silva and Mendy have arguably had the biggest impact on Chelsea’s defence, Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) and Kurt Zouma (£5.1m) remain the key assets to consider when looking to capitalise on it.

Left-back Chilwell was the people’s choice for Gameweek 7, earning more transfers in than any other player but it was Zouma who left Turf Moor with the bigger score (14), thanks to his second-half goal and two bonus points.

Perhaps we should not be too surprised at the centre-back’s third goal of the season considering that, between Gameweeks 1 and 6, Werner and Abraham were the only Chelsea players with more shots in the box and the German was the only one of Zouma’s colleagues with more efforts on target too.

The prospects of both Chilwell and Zouma look especially good for the next two matches.

We have already highlighted that Werner will face Sheffield United’s weak right-flank in Gameweek 7, which Chilwell will also have the privilege of lining up against too.

However, Zouma can offer decent match-ups in both of the next two outings. Considering his continued threat from set pieces, he might fancy attacking returns against a Sheffield United side that has given up more headed efforts than any other this season while Newcastle have conceded the most attempts from dead-ball situations in 2020/21.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; C Taylor, Tarkowski, K Long, Lowton; McNeil, D Stephens (Rodriguez 46′), Westwood, Brownhill; Wood, A Barnes (Brady 73′).

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): E Mendy; Chilwell, Zouma, T Silva, R James; Havertz (Jorginho 86′), Kanté, Mount; Werner, Abraham (Giroud 77′), Ziyech (Hudson-Odoi 73′).

    Ziyech is 8.0m now

    1. Ron_Swanson

      And Zouma is £5.2m!

        Other than that Mrs Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

    2. MikeBravo

      Now imagine if they both get injured in Europe...

  2. merin

    The pressing concerns here, imo, is Pulisic and Maupay. Who to get instead?

    Martinez Steer
    Chilwell Cresswell Lamptey KWP Mitchell
    Salah Son Pulisic Grealish Bissouma
    Kane DCL Maupay

      Ziyech for puli is no brainer and maybe Wilson for maupay?

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers! Ziyech for Puli is done. Will be interesting to see both Maupay and Wilson today

        1. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I brought my WC forward by a week to make sure I could fit Ziyech in before he got to 8.1. Yep perfect audition for Wilson and Maupay today

  3. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    It doesn't yet help much on decision making between Chilwell and Zouma. Btw, we can expect to see more discussions on this over the week.

    1. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Id say chillwell is worth the extra for assists etc

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I think both are worth having esp for the next 2

    3. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I got both for this week.

  4. davies
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Thoughts on this defence?

    James Lamptey Kilman Mitchell Dunne

    Allows an unbelievable front 6/7...

    1. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      I’m going down a similarish route. Is kilman likely to keep his spot?

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Seems first choice LCB

        1. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Sweet! Cheers mate

    2. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      So it’s the same 3 at the back every week and no subs?

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Sneaky feeling Mitchell gets his place back but otherwise yes

        1. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Not for me then. You need to spend a tiny bit more for security imo

          1. davies
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            0.1 off James > Zouma

        2. Houldsworth Hatter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          From PVA? No chance.

          1. davies
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            PVA pushed forward?

            No coincidence they lose when Mitchell doesn’t play imo

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Could be only playing 2 defenders when Azpi plays

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Or 1 if Saiss rotates with Kilman?

      2. davies
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        See above re: Mitchell

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I’m not sure he plays over PVA

    4. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Sorry in answer to you your question, I agree with the tactic! I’d only worried about Mitchell’s playing time after he missed last game

    5. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      You’ve got constant worries in defence there. Not sure what your mini leagues are like, but most of the points gained so far this week in my leagues are by players with decent defenders.

    6. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      One nailed; four not. GL.

    7. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Terrrible? James and Kilman are rotation risks. Mitchell might have lost his place (or will at some point - if not be a rotation risk) and Dunne has also lost his place.

          Naaah, hold fire. He’s already increased in price to 8, so probably won’t hit 8.1 this GW and as tasty as the Sheffield fixture is on paper, Man City only managed to just beat them

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Just that I’m not so keen to get another 1 point cameo from Foden.

          Plenty of other options. Ayling/Dallas, Coufal and Balbuena a steal at 4.4, KWP is starting to look like a bargain (also Bednarek), Targett has attacking threat, and do I understand Branthwaite (3.9) might get a look in at Everton?

          Best captain vs WBA next GW:

          A) Kane
          B) Son

          Don’t think it is quite as simple as Son cause it’s away. Think West Brom have improved defensively and will sot deep which could make Kane the better option.

          1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Let's see how they do tonight but I think Kane, similar thinking as the point you mentioned.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Isn’t Son’s away record much better. Though I will be looking at them closely today

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Yeah Son's current PPM away is 11 or something lol.

              Having said that I was thinking the same sort of thing earlier today. Feels like the type of opponent Kane scores hat-trick against.

              Don't mind him assisting Maupay or even Bissouma(autosub) 🙂

          No international football left this year for Morocco makes Ziyech a more tempting option over Rodríguez who has two lore games for Colombia next week.

            Also the fact he is twice the player Rodriguez is, and plays in three times the team where Rodriguez plays.

              Twice the player Rodriguez is? Funniest joke I've heard in a while.

                You're right mate, not twice. Three times is more close to reality.

          What do you suggest with 1FT and 0m itb.

          Martinez
          Taa Lamptey James* -- Mitchell* Saiss*.....*rotation prone
          Salah Son Havertz(SHU) Barnes(WOL) -- Burke
          DCL Kane Watkins

            • 4 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Would avoid the hit. But would use the transfer on Saiss > Zouma

          2 months, 23 days ago

          Who do you think is the 3 weakest links in this team ? got 2FT and want to sort things out

          Martinez

          TAA - Chilwell - Reguillon

          Salah - Sterling - Son - Podence

          Jimenez - DCL - Mitrovic

          Button - Justin - Bissouma - Mitchell

          1. John Nerdelbaum
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            TAA, Reguillon, Mitrovic and Jimi (maybe)

            Mitrovic only real weak link and you only need one of Podence/Jimenez.
            I’d be looking at getting Ziyech in for Podence and Bamford/Wilson for Mitrovic.

          Thoughts on Robertson ➡ Creswell and free up 2.0 milion?

          I’d have this back-line which I actually like:

          Martinez
          Chilwell - Zouma - Creswell (Ayling - Kilman)

            • 4 Years

            I think it is a good transfer.

          Anyone play sky fpl? Trying to work out if I put ings in for Jimenez.. I would get points for his game today? Joe was saying about ings 241 on the sky pod but I was unsure what he meant.

          English strikers are dominating FPL right now. If you weren’t allowed to use English strikers who would be your front three?

          Thinking Werner, Jimi, Maupay? One of Aguero, Cavani, Martial, Rodrigo, Firmino, Batshyaui, Ayew depending on form and fitness?

            Not so much different among teams, I found for me it’s been down to subtle decisions: captaincy, have the players in wrong week, chasing points from previous week

          Trent, Semedo > Chilwell, Zouma? Would be for free

            • 10 Years

            Hmm semedo looked pretty good, but fixtures aren't great. Maybe just one of them?

              get Dias/Zouma instead

            Hello mates.
            Easy question: 3 pts for a goal, 2 for an assist. No bonus system.
            Stuart Armstrong or Andros Townsend or Karlan Grant?
            Thanks in advance for an expert’s opinion.

            Is Chelsea defense worth doubling up? Have they just been lucky not to concede or are they actually quite composed now?

              Don’t like their fixtures from GW10. Not worth doubling imo

              Amazing what difference a competent goalkeeper makes

              Essentially that had great defensive stats in the kepa era just kepa let the goals in

              They kept CS against Burnley, Palace and United. Burnley has the worst attack in the league up to now. Palace too have looked pretty woeful offensively for the most part and United have been well... pretty mixed - and that was always going to be a cagey game. I wouldn't read anything too much about their defence much yet.

            Keep FT or maybe Robo to WH def?

            1FT and 1.6 ITB.

            Martinez
            Robo/Reguilon/Chilwell
            Salah/Son/Hamez/Grealish
            Kane/DCL/Bamford

            Martin/Kilman/Mitchell/Stephens

            Those going for double Chelsea defence? What will you do GW10 vs Spurs? Play both or play Chilwell and bench Zouma?

            1. Chandler Bing
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              If I do go double, I'd play them all the way until GW16.

            Caught out by the Ziyech price rise last night. He was on +70% only a few hours before changes.

            I'd love to have Zouma as SHU & NEW aren't statistically good in the air at the moment, but still have hold of Reece James. Let's hope he's the one whipping crosses in...
