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).

    Who does everyone prefer?
    A) Kane
    Or
    B) Son

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years

      B is much better value imo

    2. jia you jia you

      Son if not captaining Kane

      At the start of the season, I told my minileague mates I was all in for Kane. They mocked.

      Now 90k rank and 104.8 value.

      I owe it to Kane.

      He’ll by the top scorer this year. To lose him is madness.

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Uhhh. He definitely will not be top scorer. Bruno, Salah will both beat him easily. Probably kdb too

        1. SuperG
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          They’re *definiteky* not beating him yet, are they?

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Dude Kane is classed as a fwd. He has zero chance of being top scorer. It will be Salah most likely followed by Bruno. And bruno and salah are only 12 and 13 points behind with 1 game less played each. Spurs have stopped going goal crazy too.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Hmm, I think if Spurs were to get a decent amount of pens going forward he has a great chance (only had 1 pen do far).
              He’s going to score fairly regularly, has assists now in his locker and he’s quite good on the BAPs.

              If he stays fit and gets a fair amount of pens I think he could well do it.

                This

              2. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Personally feel Bruno will end up the highest points scorer

                1. Zim0
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  That could happen honestly with the way he's been going since he came

              3. Zim0
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                He's still classed as a fwd and will get 1 less points for every goal and no clean sheet points. He won't be top scorer in fpl.

                1. KAPTAIN KANE
                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  I do think it will end up being a mid yes, but I wouldn’t say definite.

                  If Spurs do the unthinkable and win the league, he (and Son) will have likely been involved in 90% of their goals in a winning campaign - that alone will be close to topping the charts

                  1. KAPTAIN KANE
                    • 4 Years
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    As in wouldn’t say definite in ruling him out

                    1. Zim0
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 7 days ago

                      Ok yes can't be 100% sure. Just usually its always been a mid past few years. I don't expect it to change. Kane couldn't go over 224 points in his best season when he scored 29 goals. I don't think he'll reach that many goals since he's playing as chief creator now. And assists give less points.

                      1. KAPTAIN KANE
                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 7 days ago

                        Who knows, it could be Son’s season.
                        Be interesting to know the last time a striker was top points scorer...I feel like it’s probably Aguero or RVP.

                        Even in the Leicester season I think it was Mahrez who was top overall

                      2. Zim0
                        • 2 Years
                        3 months, 7 days ago

                        I think maybe Suarez

              One fewer game. Not one less game. And I may be a ‘dudeette’

              (I’m not, but the way.)

                Yes english isn't my first language but why don't u focus on that part

                  3 months, 7 days ago

                  Ok, poor move by me. Ans you’re probably right. But Kane is still a great pick IMO. Fixtures are tough right now and this was his first blank in eight weeks.

                  1. Zim0
                    • 2 Years
                    3 months, 7 days ago

                    Obviously he's still a great pick. He just won't be top scorer. I personally prefer having Son due to the money saved and also cheap strikers are providing great value so if i had Kane it would take away the slot.

            3. Major League Shocker
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 7 days ago

              That's right, the scoring system is very biased against forwards. Kane's career high for a season was 224 points, which required 29 goals and 7 assists. For comparison, Salah got more than that last season in a relatively poor season for his standards, with only 19 goals and 10 assists.

              1. Zim0
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                Thankyou. Yes this. This guy knows.

          2. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Just look at kanes last 5 scores as well. Its not a premium assets score. More than half of his scores are from the 3 gws at the start.

              Capital K for Kane and missing apostrophe = Kane's

      B, easy.

  3. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years

    For next week who would you start?

    A) Justin (shu)
    B) Lamptey (SOU)

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      starting Lamptey over Bellerin myself

    2. Jay Jay Okocha
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      A, not close

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Shu attack are shocking, so I hear you.
        Just love watching Lamptey play and always feel like he might grab an attacking return

    3. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Sheffield utd can't score so if Justin starts then A for sure

  4. Jay Jay Okocha
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 7 days ago

    A) Dias
    B) Reece James

    1. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      A. Better fixtures, better team, more nailed.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        I think we can say Reece James is first choice now.

  5. DA Minnion

    A Vardy captain haul tomorrow evening would be huge.

    1. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’m hoping so too

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Definitely the player I fear not owning the most this week

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I'm afraid to check on his ownership, had a horrible GW already before he even plays!

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Owned by 28 percent.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          DDs will hurt a lot so!

    4. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Are leicester that good at whipping poor teams? Or are they just good at sitting back and hitting on the counter? We will find out tmr!

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Either way Vardy will be hard to handle . Fulham will need to defend better than they did against Everton.

      2. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 7 days ago

        They played 2 years ago and vardy absolutely spanked them, 2 goals and 1 assist. Safe to say Leicester shouldn't have many problems

      3. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Vardy is a flat track bully

    5. Cilly Bonnolly

      I would love it. LOVE IT!

  6. Vazza

      It appears that Mourinho and Lampard had a pre arranged agreement on the result. Anyone think the same?

        Game of cat and mouse ...

        Lampard didn’t want a repeat of Msn City game where spurs hit them on counter so he settled for 0-0 and hoped to get lucky with a 1-0 result instead of going all out

      3. Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Yeah, absolutely. And Covid is a hoax, the earth is flat and man never landed on the moon.

    • Jolly Good
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      My options are to get
      a) Man City def (Dias) and play 4-3-3 or
      b) Jota and play 3-4-3

      In a) I switch one of KDB or Bruno to get Salah (c) for GW12

      In b) I won’t be able to afford Salah

      Plus I feel Man City defence likely to outscore Jota vs wolves next GW

      Think I’ve talked messed into a), but think I need Jota as a long term pick

      Help...

      1. SuperG
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        This is rather complicated. If you want Dias and Jota, get them. Both very cheap for the value they offer.

        1. Jolly Good
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          But can’t afford Salah if I get Jota.. so question marks over who to captain GW12

      2. Jolly Good
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        My team is
        McCarthy, 4.0
        Chilwell, Robbo, Semedo, KWP, Justin
        KDB, Bruno, Grealish, 4.5, 4.4
        Werner, DCL, Bamford

      3. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Jota needs to be bought imo. I had that feeling last week and just brought him in for a hit. Wasn’t disappointed.

        That price for a playing Pool forward who is in great form is too much to resist

        1. Jolly Good
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Agreed ... I feel like I need Jota long term but short term i need to hold off couple of more GWs... not worried about hit, more about affording Salah in GW12 for captain

          1. Major League Shocker
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 7 days ago

            If you're going to get Jota, you should be prepared to captain him in GW12. It's a great fixture. If that just isn't your style, then you might want to go the other route.

            1. Jolly Good
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              I still think Jota is at higher risk of benching ... at

      I went Son to KDB and Zaha to Tielemans for a one week punt with my 2 FTs in the current GW. The second transfer is not my typical move as I tend to buy fir long stretches.

      Jota making me sweat as I had money to buy him but all will be forgiven if Tielemans becomes the supplier in chief for Vardy v FUL.

        Drop the 3rd striker, go 3-5-2 with Neto (OOP) as cheap 5th mid.

        Are you for real?

        Option A has: the most explosive player in fpl history with amazing fixtures to come, the striker who shoots the most in the league and an 8m striker priced at 6.5 with form and fixtures.

        Option B has: rotation risk, no history and little form.

        Not 1. Not keen on 2. So probably 3 but not sure about losing Vardy. Tough one

        1. fcsaltyballs
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          I was initially set on 1 but can’t lose Bruno can I... then 2 was my new favoured option and now you’re saying 3 haha

          Dilemma!!

    • Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 10 Years

      Which of these keepers would you want out of your team first?

      A. Pickford
      B. Martinez

      1. DA Minnion

        Yeah, God knows what he was doing in there in the first place.

    • SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Son to KDB or Bowen to Mahrez?

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Kdb

    • Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Would you do Bruno to KDB (C) for gw11?

      Only way I can get KDB without a hit.

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Nope.

        1. SuperG
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          This

      2. LSK
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Bruno can easily outscore him

      3. ...al
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        No. both.

    • KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Bruno now 3rd top points scorer overall, having played a game less than Kane and Son.

      Scary

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        He's stats are unreal!

      2. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Most are soft penalties

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          3 goals out of 7 have been pens plus 1 missed.

      3. Klaren
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        What’s scary about it? Obviously he scored well but Kane and Son have better ppg.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Give it a few gameweeks. His will be better

    • Shark Team
      • 3 Years

      Worry about No Jota but can't fit him in if I go for Bruno KDB Salah Kane

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Wouldn't let it worry you too much.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Yeah, most of the Jota owners don't have Salah and are worried about no Salah.

        You can downgrade to amy striker and get jota as your 4th 5th mid

    • Gudjohnsen

      Rodriguez dropping tonight.

      Can't decide if to get in...

      A. Bruno as he's rising
      B. Kdb (nowhere near rising but want him too).

      Could drop son and dcl to fit in both?

          • 11 Years

          Thank you 🙂 Would you say to pull the trigger and make the moves now?

          1. LSK
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            No wait until Friday.

    • estheblessed
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Bamford to Wilson for a free?!

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Could be a good move if nothing else pressing, wouldn't rush into it though.

    • Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Need a nailed City defender for 5.9 or less.

      Best option?

      1. Major League Shocker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Not sure any are 100% nailed, but Dias is the closest to meeting your criteria.

      2. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Nailed and City don't really go hand in hand.

    • DGW Sane TC Fail....
      • 10 Years

      How long can you go without Salah?

      1. estheblessed
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        0 GW

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Thinking the same.

        Need him and KDB but would require huge surgery to get both.

        1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          You got Jota?

          1. Gudjohnsen
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Yeah thought I had fixed my midfield with Bruno, Son, Ziyech, Grealish and Jota.
            Suddenly having doubts about Ziyech.

            1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Think am going to see how thing pan out with Jota. if i think he will start against Fulham i will not get Salah.

      3. SuperG
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Watching the game at the weekend without him was torture. So one more week max.

      4. LSK
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        For as long as you want to.

        Current team : 1.3ITB 1FT
        Martinez
        Robbo, Chillwell, Coufal (Lamptey, Mitchell)
        KDB, Bruno, Grealish, Zaha (Bissouma)
        Vardy, DCL, Bamford

        Can I save a transfer this week and:
        GW12: Zaha >>> Salah
        Vardy >>> budget striker under 6.6

        If zaha is out this week aswell then do it for -4 this week?

      • MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 7 days ago

        Grealish, Rodriguez, son out for:

        Kdb, Bruno, soucek -8?

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Probably would do those moves

        2. thegaffer82
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Wow. That’s tough. The -8 makes it way too risky in my opinion.
          Literally every player you plan to sell could give you a big haul any given week. But you are bringing in two elite FPL players and a decent-ish 7th/8th attacker.

          I’d probably do it after much procrastination

          1. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            Haha.. thanks gents. I am still procrastinating. Want to bring one in tonight for Rodriguez as he's falling.. could just to kdb this week for free.

            But then Bruno rising, might aswell get both now? So tough!

            Fulham their last three away games they have only conceded 3 against Wolves,West Ham and Sheff Utd. They could keep it low scoring so going for him bagging a goal with no bonus

            1. Mile Plankton
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              When you score in a low scoring game, you'll most likely get bonus.

              1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
                • 10 Years
                3 months, 7 days ago

                sorry that should of been with bonus

            2. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              Those aren't exactly free scoring teams. West ham without antonio, a blunt wolves, and the enigma that is Sheffield united.

          11. estheblessed
            • 6 Years

            2 goals, an assist, 3 bonus point, a yellow card and some red bull.

        • MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 7 days ago

          Here's a good one, rank these in order of essentialness:

          1.salah
          2. Bruno
          3. Kdb

          1. Jolly Good
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            1, 3, 2.. but based on fixtures 3,2,1

          2. LSK
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            2 is the most essential as he is the cheapest and has outscored the other two since his arrival in the EPL.

          3. Keeptrying
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            1,2,3

          4. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            2,1,3 Long term

            3,1.2 Short term

            The things to consider with Bruno is:

            1) He’s the cheapest
            2) He has been hauling even with United not particularly firing, imagine if they were firing

          5. ...al
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            A combo of either 2 is probably realistic for most.

            Bruno's points don't lie. He is immense and should have had another goal or two today. KdB looks immense and can haul any week. Salah is Salah, is it better to have a combo of Bruno + KdB and have Jota/Robertson for Pool cover?

            1. Keeptrying
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 7 days ago

              good point

            • 9 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            in that order.

          8. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            They're all essential now. But Bruno number 1.

        • Puntillimon
          • 5 Years

          I need to ship werner (Leeds) or richarlison ( Burnley) for Wilson this week. The other will go next week. Which to go first?

            1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
              • 10 Years

            Covid outbreak at Newcastle. Wait for news before bringing in Wilson. I prefer Werner to Rich.

          Who's the best J Rodriguez replacement? Already have Grealish

          A) Jota
          B) Ziyech
          C) Mahrez
          D) Other

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 7 days ago

            A) by far because of price, the team he plays for and his form which is making him somewhat ‘undroppable’ for Klopp right now

              • 10 Years
