Budget goalkeeper Johnstone good for FPL save points as Baggies come under siege

West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Sheffield United

  • Goals: Conor Gallagher (£5.5m)
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) x3, Gallagher x2, Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) x1

A first-half goal from Conor Gallagher (£5.5m) secured a crucial victory for West Bromwich Albion over fellow strugglers Sheffield United.

So perilous are the positions of both teams that the game had ‘vastly important’ stamped all over it.

But from a Fantasy perspective, its significance was considerably more niche.

Unpopularity Contest

No player, from either side, went into the match with double-digit ownership levels in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

The most popular asset on display was Rhian Brewster (£4.5m and 6.2%), who was given a second straight bit-part role by United boss Chris Wilder and remains painfully short of confidence, minutes and chances.

The match was far from boring – the 39 shots both sides managed between them was the most in a Premier League game this season. It just lacked anyone with the (relative) quality required to convert the eight big chances created on the day.

Future Imperfect

So are there any players from either side currently worth investing in?

Short answer: no. 

Longer answer: nope.

Neither team’s immediate schedule is overly promising. 

The Baggies do have Crystal Palace at home and then a trip to Newcastle up next, but things turn sour (mci AVL liv LEE ARS) after that.

The Blades, meanwhile, face Leicester, Southampton and Manchester United next, although their Christmas fixtures (bha EVE bur cry) are a bit more accommodating.

West Brom have tightened up at the back since securing their first clean sheet of the campaign in Gameweek 5, conceding just five goals in as many matches.

Goalkeeper Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) has impressed in that time and he brought in 11 points against Sheffield thanks to six saves and the maximum bonus award.

He’s now joint-top, with Newcastle’s Karl Darlow (£5.0m), for saves (44) and only six ‘keepers have more FPL points than him.

At least investing in Johnstone won’t be boring, but the key Fantasy factor regarding both West Brom and Sheffield United at present involves who in your team might get the chance to face one or other of them in the next few weeks.

Because whether they’re at the back or in attack, there are points to be had.

Reaction Round-Up

Wilder was his usual blunt and honest self post-match:

We’ve got nobody to blame but ourselves. If you don’t take your chances and don’t show that quality in and around the box or the penalty area, you’re not going to win games of football.

West Brom coach Slaven Bilic was, obviously, rather more upbeat:

It’s a great boost for our confidence and for the games that are coming.

But it’s going to take a lot more, from both teams, to persuade Fantasy managers to invest in any of their assets any time soon.

In fact, the main interest at present revolves around why so many are still grimly holding on to Brewster.

Yes, he’s cheap, but he’s managed just two shots on target and eight points from six joyless appearances thus far.


West Bromwich Albion XI (5-3-2): Johnstone; Townsend (Phillips 75), Bartley, Ivanovic, Ajayi, Furlong; Gallagher, Sawyers, M Pereira; C Robinson (Robson-Kanu 65), Grant (Krovinovic 75).

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; K Bryan (Lundstram 63), Egan, Basham; Lowe, Fleck, Norwood (Brewster 54), Berge, Baldock; McBurnie, Burke (Mousset 74).

    Wilson or Bamford?

    1. POTATO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Wilson - fixtures, form, penalties

    2. afsr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Bamford
      Leeds are much better in creating chances.

    3. GuenDoozy

      W

    4. Og

      Flip a coin but I like wilson more as he is the most likely to score for Newcastle. Leeds have a few more routes to goal.

    5. I Must Break You

      Wilson if you like chasing last week's points. Bamford if you like better underlying stats and a player on a better offensive team.
      Wilson also has better upcoming fixtures over next 4 and 8 which does make it a tough choice.
      Go with your gut.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Better underlying stats have been there for ages, even in Championship and they've not materialised for them (even in Championship)

        Agreed Leeds are more offensive but Wilson is on pens

        Indeed a tough choice, I'll decide based on how they play this GW

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Oops didn't mean to write even in Championship twice

    6. Bielsa Murderball
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Bamford, plays in a gung ho attacking team, and will get far more chances than wilson easily

        1. Bielsa Murderball
            1 month, 24 days ago

            also leeds' brilliant fixture swing starts from gw13

        Bottomed

        Should i get Mahrez for FUL for a hit?

        Currently have KdB, Bruno, Jota, Grealish, Bowen, DCL, Bamford, Vardy in attack. Only 1.6 ITB and 1FT, so can't straight swap Mahrez for Bowen, only for a hit.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Inconsistent player. Wouldn't be surprised if he gets 1 point next GW

          1. afsr
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            who to get from Man City then?

            1. Bielsa Murderball
                1 month, 24 days ago

                dias maybe?

                KDB

            1 month, 24 days ago

            I'm considering downgrading Vardy to upgrade Hamez to KDB. Will make my decision after watching Vardy on Monday.
            Agree with Yayascake that KDB is the optimal City target.

          Morning dzzzz, early thoughts on this team? have 0m itb and 1ft. really hoping that i dont have any injuries so i can finally save my FT for the first time this season.

          Martinez
          Chilwell James Lamptey --- Lewis Mitchell
          Kdb Son Grealish Bruno -- Burke
          Watkins Kane DCL

          gw11: Plan is to Save (hopefully!). Son/Kane not ideal but not keen on hit
          gw12: Any of my mids + Kane > Salah + Bamford

        3. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Ziyech + Son -> KdB + Jota (-4)
          or only son -> KdB?

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Ziyech definitely needs to go imo. But Son vs Arsenal is a good fixture

            1. The Red Devil
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              dunno, think spurs vs arsenal suits kane more than son, thing is i will get jota anyway, if not GW11, then GW12

          2. David Brains - OH NO!
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Just do the 1 transfer if you're going to do it

            1. The Red Devil
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              getting KdB in for sure

        4. Birds of Prey
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Cavani got graded a 10. Give me a break. At times he looked like he couldn't remember what color jersey his teammates were playing in.
          Also they didn't run the winner back at all. I think it went off his upper arm, and his head whiffed. Dude looks like Richard Ramirez-- just saying. Did appreciate they went back and tossed Ferni that asst.

        5. Ruinenlust
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Dallas or Targett?

          1. Og
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Dallas

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            Dallas easily.

          3. I Must Break You
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

          4. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years

          5. David Brains - OH NO!
            • 8 Years

          110% bringing in KDB this week and captaining him.. just not sure which is the best way to fund it.

          0.5itb, 1FT, pick one:

          1) Kane + Grealish (or Ziyech) —> Bamford + KDB
          2) Fernandes + Ziyech —> Jota + KDB
          3) Fernandes + Grealish —> Jota + KDB
          4) Kane + Wilson + Stephen’s —> Bamford + Davis + KDB (will switch to 3-5-2 and bench Davis)

          Rest of team:
          Martinez
          Chillwell / KWP / Dias
          Salah / Fernandes* / Ziyech* / Grealish*
          Kane* / DCL / Wilson

          Button, Kilman, Michell, Stephens*

          1. David Brains - OH NO!
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            From those Option 1 looks the best with Ziyech out

            1. tc93
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Frees up 1.8 ITB- which defender should I bring in for Michell next week? I’m considering going double Chelsea.

          2. CONNERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Kane & Ziyech to Bamford and KDB.

            Then use the change to upgrade that bench!

            1. tc93
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Smart move- bench defo needs some money spending on it haha! After those moves I’ve got 1.8 ITB- I’m thinking Michell —> James or Zouma next week

        7. David Brains - OH NO!
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          ...difficult to know whether or not to squeeze in KDB?

          Grealish - Bruno - Son - Jota - Salah

          The original plan was Bruno upgrade (with £1.4m ITB) but that could backfire... as could Son out (who I've sold twice already just before hauls)

          1. CONNERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Fulham look so bad I could genuinely think we could see 7 or 8-0 in that game.

          2. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years

            I really do think you want him for Fulham.

          3. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            son or grealish, barkley being out will impact grealish (if he's confirmed out for a bit)

        8. TAB
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Martínez
          Cresswell Chilwell Cancelo
          Grealish Bruno Jota Son
          Kane Vardy DCL

          Steer , Mitchell , Lamptey , Stephens

          A) Kane & Son to Bamford & KDB(C) -4
          B) Vardy & Son to Bamford & KDB(C) -4

          1. David Brains - OH NO!
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            We have the same midfield and I'm not sure either... Son out could easily backfire but so could no KDB

        9. Inazuma X1
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Following up on previous question -

          Which is a better combo?

          1. Wilson + Dallas
          2. Bamford + Lewis + 0.6

          1. David Brains - OH NO!
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Op 1 last week... option 2 going forward (0.6 will be useful)

          2. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            2

          3. CONNERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Why not Bamford and Dallas?

            1. Inazuma X1
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Doubling up is risky this season considering how any team can beat any team

          4. CONNERS
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Leeds look the real deal. I don't see the risk of going with an attacker and a defender.

            I'll be doing exactly that from GW13.... the very same two in fact.

          Seems I'm doubling up on Chelsea defence now. I've had enough. Reminds me too much of Robbo + TAA in the second half of 18/19

          1. Jafalad

            Mighty Leeds will sort them out this week 😉

              1 month, 24 days ago

              That's the thing. When playing big teams, Chelsea parks the bus. When playing expansive games, Chilwell and James can easily get attacking returns. This, by itself, makes them fixture-proof to me

              1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Yeah, they kept CS vs Spurs,United and even Sevilla, that's mad...

          2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Cancelo to James on the cards possibly...
            I don't think it's risky either because almost everyone has 1

            1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              almost everyone has 1 Chelsea defender anyway

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Exactly. Everything about this has the Robbo + TAA vibe for me. I'm done staying with just Chilwell or checking their fixtures

                James becoming nailed while Cancelo rotates is the final nail

                1 month, 24 days ago

                Did it in gw 7 and that felt late. They’ve been good to me. Chilwell and James seem to absorb the bonus.

                1. Ze_Austin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  I wanted James earlier, but he got benched twice in a row (GWs 4 and 5), so I stayed away to monitor the Azpi situation. James seems to have completely taken over now, the way TAA took over from Gomez after initially rotating. So I'm definitely going in this week and perma-starting both until things go south

                  1. Rupert The Horse
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    1 month, 24 days ago

                    James seems to have been watching TAA delivery too. He created at least two big chances yesterday. Just Tammy is scared to head the ball.

                      James crossing has always been elite IMO as a Chelsea fan, we always give it on a plate and everyone messes it up, he should have had like 10 assists last season as well

                        I didn’t know. Guess you need to be a Chelsea fan or an owner to realise. 🙂

            Best defense in the league, fixture proof and massive potential for offensive returns. It has to be done.

            I’m going to be hiding behind the couch for that one. 3 Villa left to play tonight, so hoping to hit 65 at least for the gameweek.

        13. Twisted Melon
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          A) Son and DCL > KDB and Antonio
          B) Kane to KDB
          C) Grealish to Mahrez

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            B

            If you could show me how to do B, I would definitely do that this week

            1. Twisted Melon
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Kane and 4.3 mid to KDB and 4.3 mid

              1. Twisted Melon
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Kdb and 4.3 forward *

        14. Make United Great Again
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Martinez
          Coufal Chilwell Ayling
          Bruno Salah Son Grealish Jota
          Kane DCL

          Steer, Brewster, Mitchell, Johnson.

          Need KDB (C) vs Fulham.

          A) Salah > KDB FT? (Would do the same transfer the week after)

          B. Kane & Son > Wilson & KDB (C) -4

          C. Son & DCL > KDB & Welbeck -4

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            C potentially but options other tham welbeck?

            1. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Literally got 5.5 to spend on a striker.

              But the thought of having Salah KDB, Bruno Kane feels good!

            2. Make United Great Again
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              He’s the best 5.5 option

              1. Twisted Melon
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Don't feel like he's an option though

                1. Make United Great Again
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  So would you say option A is the better choice?

                  Welbeck has got a goal + assist in his last two. But I get you. I’m trying to squeeze in too many big hitters

        15. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Thoughts on this for next week?
          Martinez (Forster)
          Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal)(Neco)
          Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
          Vardy DCL Watkins

          1ft,0.5 itb

          Cancelo to Dias/James or save? I guess the decision depends on if he plays midweek

          Will downgrade Vardy to fund Ziyech to Fernandes maybe for GW13 or later

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Looks good. Nice plans too, would follow through with all of them barring any injuries.

            Probably Watkins > Wilson at some point too

        16. Inazuma X1

          Did Klopp mention why he subbed Salah?

            No. Would you ask?

          2. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Yes. Said he needed to manage his minutes due to his return from Covid

        17. sergioaguero67
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Swap

          Vardy + Grealish ---> Bruno + Wilson? (-4)
          Fair move?

          Cannot afford further losing my rank because of not owning Bruno

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years

            Some people have mentioned a COVID situation at Newcastle.

            Remarkably awful.

          3. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            No!

          Silly question i know but what does the figures need to show on fpl statistics in order to expect a price rise?
          I.E R. James is on 24.6.

          Thanks guys

          Start Bamford(che) OR Lamptey(SOU)

          1. Make United Great Again
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Bamford

          2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Bamford

        20. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Play Lamptey vs Southampton or Neco Williams vs Wolves?

          1. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Will Williams start?

              • 4 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Milner hamstring means he should I assume with TAA likely out again.
              Fabinho can also play RB but they have too many troubles elsewhere for him to play there I think

              1. Inazuma X1
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                I heard TAA will be back this GW but I dont know if its true

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A) Son > KDB
          B) Kane,Soucek > Wilson,KDB(-4)
          C) Kane,Soucek > Antonio,KDB(-4)

          1. Live Lad
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            I like C when Antonio is back.

        22. Live Lad
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Seems like I have to drop Ziyech (instead of Son) to get Salah in before Fulham. Two most difficult games for Spurs (on paper) are over and they can score in all of the coming games. Sold Kane and planned to do the same to Son but Ziyech seems like he may become a consistent assister but he doesn't shoot or go into the area a lot. Gonna save this week and do:

          Robbo + Ziyech to Coufal + Salah for free hopefully?

          And worth doing including Grealish to Jota and get a better defender?

        23. Live Lad
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Any merit in keeping WC till last week of expiry? Will we know something?

          I don't need to use it but can do something like going big on City or Liverpool before their respective Fulham games and then WC to get a team with players with good fixtures like Antonio.

          Best defender from gw11 onwards for 5.8m or less? Already have Chilwell, Dias, Kilman and KWP..

          I’m currently thinking going double Chelsea with either James or Zouma. But open to other suggestions

          1. King Drogba11
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I think Reece James is incredibly underpriced. Looking at him myself alongside Chilwell.

            • Twisted Melon
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              I'm Thinking of a double up with James once more pressing issues have been sorted

          2. King Drogba11
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Robbo >>> James
              Soucek >>> Jota (-4)

              Yes or no ?

              "Only SIX keepers have more points in FPL"

              So that's 7th out of 20th, not very impressive. And now 8th as Lloris got 10 against Chelsea, and could be 9th if Schmeichel gets 4 points against Fulham.

              That's not to mention PPG, where Mendy and Pope would also be above him. 11th best FPL keeper to date basically!

              However..form is very good, 33 points in last 6 games is far more impressive, WBA definitely defending much better recently
