How Adams fared in Ings’ absence as Walcott plays up-front for Southampton

Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

  • Goals: Che Adams (£5.9m), Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Theo Walcott (£5.8m)
  • Bonus points: Kyle Walker-Peters x3 (£4.5m), Armstrong x2, Jack Stephens x1 (£4.8m)

NEXT BIG INGS?

Che Adams (£5.9m) made a positive start to life in a Southampton team without the injured Danny Ings (£8.4m).

It only took a few minutes for the former Birmingham City man to get on the scoresheet against Newcastle on Friday night, sweeping home Theo Walcott‘s (£5.8m) cross with tremendous aplomb.

That was Adams’ sixth attacking return of 2020/21 and his fifth in the last four matches. That certainly represents promising form even with clashes against Wolves (away), Manchester United (home), Brighton (away) and Sheffield United (home) in the next four Gameweeks.

There had been some concern that Adams would suffer without Ings as the spearhead, whose five goals, two assists and incessant high-press have made him such an important part of Ralph Hasenhüttl’s style.

Instead, the Southampton manager chose to use Adams as his Ings replacement, so to speak, asking his number 10 to shoulder more responsibility for shots on goal, using Walcott to fill in as the more mobile second-striker.

Together, the two players caused Newcastle all sorts of problems, combining for the opening goal, before Walcott went close to bending an effort in from the edge of the box shortly after.

“(Walcott was) very good, I think, especially when he can turn on the ball. He has good technique. He had two good chances where the finish, we need to work on. But what he invests for us is amazing.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

HOME COMFORTS

Since conceding five times in a Gameweek 2 defeat to Spurs, Southampton’s defence has become one of the most reliable in Premier League home matches.

They have now gone three St. Mary’s Stadium outings without conceding, helping Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) to claim the top spot for points-per-million spent among goalkeepers this season (7.3).

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.5m) was the chief beneficiary in the latest round of action though, as he claimed all three bonus points in the 2-0 win over Newcastle.

Keeping a clean sheet on Friday night was made more impressive by recent injury developments at Southampton.

Ryan Bertrand (£5.0m) missed the game with a hamstring injury, the lack of options forcing Hasenhüttl into deploying centre-back Jack Stephens (£4.8m) on the left-hand side of his four-man defence.

Whether Southampton can continue this run of solid defensive form perhaps depends if they can shore themselves up on the road.

For all their solidity at home, the Saints have conceded three times in each of their last two away encounters and they face trips to Wolves (Gameweek 9) and Brighton (Gameweek 11) soon.

WILSON!!

As much as Southampton were deserving of praise for the way they managed this game, it must be said that Newcastle put in one of their worst performances of the season.

The combination of Allan Saint-Maximin‘s (£5.3m) pace and Callum Wilson‘s (£6.6m) poacher’s instinct has proven fruitful in recent weeks but, for an unknown reason, Steve Bruce elected not to deploy the Frenchman in wide areas on Friday night.

Stationed alongside Wilson in a central role on paper, Saint-Maximin struggled to get on the ball and, with Newcastle’s midfielders repeatedly losing the ball in key areas, their striker was completely starved of service.

“The best team won. We weren’t anywhere near the side that beat Everton. We gave the ball away far too often and we should look after it better.” – Steve Bruce

“That’s the difficulty we have. We go up and down too much. In the 15 months I’ve been here, we have a string of good performances and then we have games like tonight when we’re not ourselves.” – Steve Bruce

Whether Wilson can continue to reward his ownership in upcoming favourable matches against Aston Villa (away), West Bromwich Albion (home), Leeds (away) and Fulham (home), is now dependent on two factors.

Firstly, can Newcastle get back to the sort of performance they showed against Everton in Gameweek 7, characterised by pace in wide areas rather than through the middle.

And, secondly, it also hinges upon whether or not Wilson can recover from a hamstring injury sustained in the closing stages of Friday night. The striker does have the international break to recover, although the severity of the issue is not yet known.

“We’ll not know how bad it is until we get him scanned. We hope that it’s not too bad but we’ll see. It was a hamstring injury.” – Steve Bruce

Southampton XI (4-4-2): A McCarthy; J Stephens, Vestergaard, Bednarek, Walker-Peters; Djenepo (Redmond 74′), Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Armstrong; Walcott (S Long 88′), Adams.

Newcastle United XI (5-3-2): Darlow; Lewis, Fernández, Lascelles, Schär, Murphy (Joelinton 79′); Almirón, Hendrick (M Longstaff 61′), S Longstaff; Saint-Maximin, Wilson (Carroll 78′).

    Kane to Jesus in the cards?

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      He’s young yet, probably a bit too early to meet his maker

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        I snorted

    2. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Question is would you want to double up with KDB or Sterling? I’d love to just get Jesus but don’t think he’ll cover the midfielders

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Nah. Jesus nowhere near as good as Kane.

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Not about how good a player is, about how much FPL points they’ll score. Jesus could definitely match or better Kane over the next few weeks

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Sure get him so.

        2. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          sorry but lol

          1. Scholes Out Forever
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Could, not saying he will, but you saying no chance Jesus can outscore Kane?

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              I’m saying that

            2. GreennRed
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              It's possible but in his City days he's never looked the quality needed and never looks confident enough to put Aguero on the bench on a regular basism

              1. Scholes Out Forever
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 19 days ago

                Yeah true, if aguero is out long term I’d be tempted but don’t think I’d pick him over Kdb or sterling

            3. I Must Break You
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Go check the xG delta histories for Kane and Jesus and then ask that question again. One is a lethal finisher and one is named Jesus

              1. Scholes Out Forever
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 19 days ago

                That’s what everyone said about Bamford and Jesus after the restart...

        3. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Why are people ignoring the fact that Aguero will take a chunk of minutes off him

          1. Scholes Out Forever
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Is aguero back or even close to training? Thought he’s still injured

            1. Ron_Swanson
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Back after IB I think

          2. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            And if City hit form there will be a lot of attackers sharing the points while there are strikers for Jesus price and less more likely to do similar or better points.

            1. Scholes Out Forever
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Fair, I think Agueor’s status is very important as well. I just don’t think there’s a lot of viable forwards currently. DCL Werner Kane Bamford and maybe Adams and Jimenez

    4. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Not for me, use Kane to find Raz or KDB if you want City

  2. Hart-ake
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Anyone else considering the Son to Bruno move next week and capping for WBA?

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Just about everyone i think

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        This

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Capping alright. Grealish VC probably but a load of ball to be played before GW9.

    3. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I created funds this week for that very move

    4. GoonSquad
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Yes, not sure about armband. Sorta thinking James Rodriguez.

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Differential for sure. JR does get rest and Richarlison back.

    5. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Seems Bruno is The MU asset if you want to own anything MU

    6. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I've got both. But definitely considering capping Bruno next gameweek.

  3. Labile
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Kane ➡️ Martial -4 TO AFFORD Son and Saïss ➡️ KDB and Cancelo in GW 10 for the fixture swing.

    Think I’m going to do it thoughts?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 19 days ago

      -4 to bring in Martial who looks like will be sitting in the bench next week? Madness

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      cannot believe people are getting rid of two absolute fire players for City assets who have shown such drab form.

      1. Scholes Out Forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Well it’s about getting in the bandwagons before they form and getting off before they start blanking, thats the whole point isn’t it?

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          yes but if i've learnt anything this and last season, it's that this aint happening as much. Absolutely no reason why spurs players aren't gonna punish and city to turn into a free for all scoring team. Spurs look 100 times better than city at the moment. but i get what ya mean, not for me thouh, may bring KDB in but that's it, and it'll be for rashford, keeping both spurs lads.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            This year the best differential has been to do nothing. I’m going with that

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              agreed, it's the winning way, learnt that the hard way already 🙂

          2. Scholes Out Forever
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Fair enough, they’ve been looking in the ascendancy in their past 3 or 4 games so definitely one needed. Most would want to get in United and City assets so logically 20M Spurs assets are the easiest to move. The logic and fixtures are there and much less asinine than what you made it sound imo

            1. The Suspended One
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 19 days ago

              Yeah but spurs fixtures are not bad as they may look at first glance. City has been poor defensively and then its 3 London derbies; I predict goals

              1. Scholes Out Forever
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 19 days ago

                Pretty sure city is a top 3 defence in the past 4 GWs, but do agree the derbies are a toss up. FWIW I’m keeping Kane and selling Son

                1. The Suspended One
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  I’d keep Kane out of the two, but I’d almost sell Salah before either.

                  Son is the best value in the game..

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes and no. The eternal form vs fixtures issue.

        Have you seen citys upcoming fixtures ?

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          That's only relevant if you've also seen city's form.....

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            Fixtures create form, but players in form can score big time, (at least I believe that has happened ofte already this season...)

        2. Emp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Hope people hold onto son and kane for city's upcoming run will help me climb the ranks quicker. This is man City we are talking about how quickly people forget...form schmorm they are going to score an absolute bucketload of goals starting in two gws time and I'll be tripling up

          1. UNDERWORLD7
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            lmao

          2. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            The position of KdB in easier fixtures is an issue.

          3. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 19 days ago

            You forgetting this City hasn’t had a no.9 all season? If you don’t think they’ll do well and haul in their fixture run from gw10 you’re just oblivious

      3. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Form doesn’t last forever, fixtures do

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Actually I wouldn't bet on good fixtures lasting forever 😉

        2. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Yeah, you can captain a player against WBA or Fulham every week through New Year's if you have the right players. If that doesn't improve my captaincy points, nothing will.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 19 days ago

            That hasn’t worked too well to be fair...

    3. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Depends on rest of your team, but yes in isolation looks fine but Kane and son can still punish

      Have to hope you nail the KDB captaincy points

  4. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Bruno to KDB/Sterling double up after gw10 or keep Bruno and have only one City?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Bruno and De Bruyne.

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        This.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 19 days ago

        KDB not really appealing positioning wise in easy fixtures though, think Raz may be better for that run

        1. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          KDB - factoring the Pep risk, formation risk, and not having a healthy Aguero is not the Auto-Own KDB for me

          I will be a minority of people not getting KDB

    2. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Double up

    3. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Difficult one. Depends if Bruno continues picking up good FPL points and how good City mid look

  5. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Podence and Kane to Bruno and Bamford (keep Son)?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Not with Kane in such good form. Any other alternatives to sell to get Bruno?

      1. Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Son

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 19 days ago

          Ah here! Depends on how much you want Bruno. Sell Salah? Bruno is United's top dog FPL wise. Salah could end up in a share of Pool attacking points with a few more.

    2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      I would keep Son over Kane.i don't see the upcoming teams defence playing deep and can see Son capitalising on the counter

  6. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 19 days ago

    Why do I always feel like Bruno’s points are from lucky low quality chances...

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Because he’s a diving cheat, makes it very difficult to like him

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        We should appreciate how he makes a bottom five team competitive...

        But I don’t.

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        Lol

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      What does it matter when he gets the points. Better than looking at a player that creates plenty of chances but doesn't take enough. He's a very streetwise footballer with no little skill.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        It doesn’t not matter...

        🙂

      2. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 19 days ago

        He does have skill - that’s not in doubt

    3. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Cause they are, but it works for him

      Mane is the opposite, it’s all spectacular and incredible, never really see Mane dive or fake and Mane brushes his teeth

      But a last- Bruno rakes points

    4. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 19 days ago

      Maybe, but how many matches will it take for you to admit that his consistency isn't just luck anymore? He's tops among mids for chances created, 2nd in passes received in the final 3rd behind Salah, and tied for 2nd in shots on target (also behind Salah, tied with Son, Mane, and Barnes). Was off the charts in 14 games last season, and is at the top of the charts again this season. Ignore at your own peril I would say.
      Non-owner, btw, but strongly considering trying to fit him in.

        I got him in for week two and then sold week five thinking he was poor; The transfers worked out but still I haven’t been able to put a finger on him

        from a liverpool fan Bruno is first on my fpl team after Salah. If you love points bruno is your man. If you hate points go for one of city's mids... 🙂

          Obviously he is a world class player, he continued his form and numbers from Sporting, but it somehow feels wrong to invest in Utd..

                    Ive had him since gameweek 2 thats 51 points in 7 games and could have been more if not subbed off in the freak gave vs spurs.

                    The guy is a machine. Just imagine the returns when they click and west brom next.. The guy is a midfield general on set pieces and penalties. a beast of fpl

                      Bought him gwk 2 sold him gwk 5 getting Kane, son and pulisic. Was a mistake but still net positive, just could have been much better if I kept him over puli. I’ll buy him again but I’m not sure when

                          I hear you man today must have hurt him getting around 17 points. Honestly, I don't think Pulisic is good enough as an fpl option because of his injury record.

                  I started with Puli, sold him, bought back for his pregame injury. I feel like I can’t sell him now because if he gets any points I will hate myself forever

                      Get rid and move on if he is not declared fit for the next game. Regardless of what he does bro dont be too hard on yourself.. if an asset aint performing get rid... Your better off with a less injury prone player with less competition for his place..

                    It would certainly take a hattrick for me to consider not selling him. In fact I'll almost certainly give him the City game. Not sure about after that though.

                    If you must, but I don't think he will come close to what you can get from Bamford or Adams for only about 1m more.

                    Kane, Vardy

                  I cannot believe DCLs assist is still there. If that stays its a joke. It is not an assist on premierleague.com nor on other sites. Yet the points are still there on FPL. Am I missing something?

                      No doubt people who have him will be happy but I am all about credit being given where its due. It wasn't an assist and its not been given as an assist anywhere other than on FPL which is very strange.

                    Yeah I'm with you on this one. Although I think I read somewhere that once FPL points are given (or not), it's final. In other words, no VAR for FPL points...

                      Surely they would look to see if it was an assist before given the points. If that is their excuse, its pathetic. Every other site and sports site as no assist.

                    I can't believe Fabianski is awarded with a penalty save either.

                    “... It is not an assist on premierleague.com nor on other sites ...”. What are you looking at? I see it as an assist on PremierLeague, Opta and FBRef.

                    You miss everything.

                    It's definitely a DCL's assist, no matter Linderloef contacting the ball.

                  I am looking to get KDB to pair with Sterling from GW10. Could you advise me the best route ?

                    I guess you'd have to lose both Son and Kane.
                    Kane to Werner if possible.

                    You should worry about your defence mate. It's terrible. Playing Kilman and Coufal every week? :O

                        Still a worry. Hopefully your defenders rotate well in a 3 out of 4

                    Selling Abraham & Bruno to buy Werner & Hamez?
                    Or the other way around?

                      Selling Werner + JRod to b.fernandes + Abraham

                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 19 days ago

                        Pulisic and Havertz might be back after IB. That would threaten Abraham's gametime.

                  Thoughts on this WC draft? Keen on a big midfield...

                  Martinez Foster
                  Robbo Dias Lamptey Coufal 3.9
                  Salah KDB Bruno Grealish Soucek
                  DCL Antonio* Brewster

                  1.0itb... Bruno to Sterling also an option.

                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 19 days ago

                    Looks very nice. Not sure about Antonio, just too injury prone for me.

                    1. Pukki Blinders
                      • 1 Year
                      3 months, 19 days ago

                      Can go with Bamford or Watkins instead, easy switch depending on Antonio's fitness

                  2. FC Hakkebøf
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 19 days ago

                    You don't fancy Chelsea assets? They are scoring for fun atm. Would prolly downgrade one of Bruno or KDB to Ziyech and upgrade one of Soucek / Brewster. If you pick Bruno now just make sure you got enough itb to do Bruno -> KDB later.

                  3 months, 19 days ago

                  Feeling like this City fixture swing + Chelsea kicking into gear with Ziyech arrival is a turning point in the season and I don't think I have time to see how Son + Kane fair against well organised sides over the next 4 / 5 GWs. This could be huge.

                  1. FC Hakkebøf
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 19 days ago

                    Yep. Getting rid of both Kane and Son and hope they do terrible vs better opponents

                    3 months, 19 days ago

                    Agreed on all points, but be careful assessing Ziyech as the savior of Chelsea after a couple of good games

                    1. FC Hakkebøf
                      • 4 Years
                      3 months, 19 days ago

                      Doesn't have to be the saviour priced at 8.1

                      3 months, 19 days ago

                      Top player for sure but I'm also on about impact on other players now that Frank will set up as planned when Ziyech, Werner and Havertz came in the summer. Irresistible when you add Pulisic to the mix.

                    At least you have IB to assess

                  Forster; Saiss Stephens 3.9

                  Early thoughts on one of the following moves?

                  A) Kane + Son -> Werner + Fernandes (get in KDB before Fulham)
                  B) Kane + Maupay -> Werner + ?Antonio? (Enough itb to do Son -> KDB the following week)
                  C) Son + Saiss -> Fernandes + Coufal (KDB before Fulham)
                  D) Maupay + Son -> Werner + Jota (KDB before Fulham)
                  E) Something else

                  Leaning towards A or B. D is tempting if Jota performs well vs City

                      Could do Maupay + Son -> Bamford + Fernandes as well... Just don't like Leeds' fixtures.

                  Anything standing out?
                  May end up WC'ing in a couple of GW's so short term moves are fine.
                  Barkley, Jimenez, Son, Kane all possible sells.
                  Grealish (definitely), Ziyech, Bruno, Jota, Antonio, Rich, Bamford possible buys.

                  McCarthy.
                  TAA, Chilwell, Ayling.
                  Salah, Barkley, Podence, Son.

                    Antonio if fit. Don't really fance any other forward atm. Maybe Watkins. Didn't look too sharp last game though
