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).

  3. POTATO

    Monitoring Kilman benching situation as it may leave only three starting defenders or less available week-to-week.

    Martinez (Forster)
    Chilwell Cresswell Robertson (Kilman Mitchell)
    Salah Bruno KdB Grealish (Podence)
    Wilson Watkins Bamford
    0.4itb 0FT

    Which is a better strategy going forward if no other fires to put out using FTs wherever available:

    a) Podence to Neto: 3-5-2 & 3-4-3 no nailed defender sub.
    b) Podence > 4.5; Mitchell > James: 4-4-2 & 3-4-3
    c) Mitchell > Dallas

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not sure I’d get rid of Podence right now. Could be interesting with Jimi out for the time being (I guess - not itk).

      Podence, Neto & Traoré looked an exciting combination as a front 3.

      Just do C)

      1. POTATO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Thanks. I've watched a lot of Wolves and Neto just looks more attacking, taking up favourable penalty box positions, for virtually the same price as Podence. But it can wait if the defence needs better cover.

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’m in the same boat, but going to roll my transfer this week if nothing else comes up. Kilman would be a 2 pointer next week anyway, so by the time I need a 4th playing defender again, he could easily be first choice again (not saying he will be, but it’s not that much of a long shot)

  4. KDB4PREZ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Any idea how long Trent is out for?

    1. Ruth_NZ
      • 6 Years

      Could be back as soon as next weekend according to the Liverpool Echo.

      • 5 Years

      Apparently 9th Dec. So that could mean GW12 away to Fulham

  5. seewhyaxe
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    35 from 8 with Emi, Grealish and Vardy(c) left.

    It’s going to end with a red arrow tomorrow right?

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

      A brace from Vardy and you’re laughing

    2. Ragabolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      One Vardy goal gives you a definite green.

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        A couple would be even better.

    3. POTATO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Nope, green (with envy for your captain Vardy this week)

      Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey
      Mane Bruno Ziyech Grealish
      Vardy DCL Watkins

      Thinking of just doing Mane > KDB and pray that Cancelo starts v Fulham.
      Thoughts?

    • MikeS

      Reminiscing about some great precious Liverpool assets. Who was your favourite, considering their prices at the time?

      1. Suarez
      2. Salah
      3. Coutinho
      4. Torres

      Mine was probably suarez

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Daniel Sturridge and Suarez combo

        1. HMC

          How good was SAS

      2. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Back in the day Riise was gold

      3. FPLMACKEM
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Suarez. The night i captained him when he scores four past Norwich was legendary.

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Haha I had him (c) that say too. Was a beautiful hatrick too. Then he started biting people.. absolute nutter

          1. FPLMACKEM
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Yeah I think he scored every type of goal that game. He really did enjoy playing Norwich.

    • thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Best defender up to 5.3 to replace Lamptey?

      Martinez
      Dallas Zouma Vestergaard
      Salah Bruno KDB Grealish
      Vardy Bamford Wilson

      Forster LAMPTEY* Bissouma Mitchell

        James

      2. Roy Rovers
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Not sure about a double Chelsea.

      3. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Why replace Lamptey? He’s back next GW and will still be bombing down that right hand side... for his price I’m definiteky holding

        1. Roy Rovers
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I suppose I could upgrade Mitchell

        2. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Lamprey too injury prone and crap defence that leaks goals. Only good going forward

    • thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Not sure if it’s a waste of breath to even ask this on here, as I doubt many would admit to it anyway...

      But, does anyone on here have more than one team?

      I did try it once maybe 8 years ago - my erm, ‘wife’s’ team. Found it to be a bit of a drag to manage after a few weeks and then ended up sacking it off. Never bothered again after that.

      I get the feeling from the number of players these days, and the amount of ‘new’ teams added every week, that some people are rampant at setting up multiple teams...

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        There are a few around here as has been called out in the past but I have seen people find and post screenshots of the same user having 20+ teams (not FFS user), they reported it to FPL and yet nothing gets done about it. I know they stripped the winner last year or the year before so guess they only worry about it if and when. Would suit them to have as many users as possible I assume so they'd be happy to let them sit there.

      2. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I once made and managed a team, for some random girl at work who hates football. I thought it would be funny to make her win the work league.. actually beat my own team playing for her. Never told anyone i managed it or her

      3. ...al
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Nah can't be bothered with double the hassle

      4. POTATO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Unless someone starts GW1, and has played a previous season, then by default I assume it's a multiple account. Sometimes I'm wrong.

    • DA Minnion
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Is Kilman done for now?

      1. DGW Sane TC Fail....
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Could be ,He's gone to playing 4 at the back, but late in the game he went to a back 5 bringing Kilman on. If that becomes common then i think he has to go

      2. ...al
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        If they go with a regular 4 at the back, possibly

        Who knows if they will stick with 4 at the back. They did look good today, even with Jimi absence

        Kilman just came on for a defensive tactical change today at lb

    • Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I can't fit Salah, KDB, Bruno and Kane without completely dismantling the rest of the team.
      Maybe I should just sell Kane. At least for a short term.

      1. ...al
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Most people have come to that conclusion

      2. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Salah out for mee

      3. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yep, Kane the one to make way for mine.

      4. DGW Sane TC Fail....
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Tough choices over these next few weeks .. just go with you gut feeling

      5. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I’m doing Kane > Bamford next week to fund Grealish or Ziyech > Salah (c)

        Will mean I have Bruno, Salah & KDB.

        I can’t find a week where I’m not happy to captain one of those to be honest

    • Manani
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      got this backline:

      Mitchell Cancelo James Chiwell Lamperty

      worth doing Mitchell>KWP?
      Cancelo seems like is rotation prone now, and James can also possibly be benched. Feels like a 5th playing defender is needed

    • Gabbiadini
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Would you do Salah & Grealish to Fernandes and Jota?
      Leaves 2.3 ITB to be able to upgrade Bamford to Ings.

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I'd find another way to get Bruno in.

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Ziyech is the only other way...
          I don't want to trade either of KDB or Son.

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I'd definitely be losing Ziyech before Salah.

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I sold Son (this GW)

        Obviously Son will keep on scoring cos he’s quality. But Salah gotta be brought in as captain and Son still has tough fixtures coming

      3. Balance

    • seewhyaxe
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      As a gunner, I really don’t know what’s wrong with the team.

      Auba through the middle they said, and yet there’s really nothing that shows it’s working.

      What on earth is wrong

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Too much change too soon in my opinion.

        Arteta went for revolution over evolution and brought a lot of youngsters into the team as well as trying to change the way they play drastically.

        Medium to long term I do think he will do well. But will he keep his job long enough to turn it around?

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Apart from maybe Saka and Martinelli, the youngsters are not really showing up aren’t they

      2. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Player for player we are weaker than wolves.

        1. GuenDoozy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 4 days ago

          And many other teams. Too many mediocre players like Luiz, Leno, Willian, Pepe, Xhaka Lacazette (lets face it his allround game isnt nearly as good as someone like Ings/Jimi/DCL even), Artetas system can only work with the right players.

          These are all players that Arsenal fans will tell you are world class

          1. seewhyaxe
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I honestly thought Pepe was playing decently the first few games

            1. GuenDoozy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Not consistent enough and its been a season and a half

          2. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I'm an arsenal fan and happy to say they're all crap

            1. GuenDoozy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Football knowledge at FFS is a bit higher than social media etc

      3. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Aubu awful, thought he'd be essential this season

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          There’s no creativity at all...

        2. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Essential to Arsenal’s game, yes probably. But after he signed his extension, we know how well it’s been going

          Not for FPL.

      4. Poison Apple
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Dont have anyone gd enuff to make plays.
        No wingers that scream u got to double up on me.
        Transition from defence to attack is too slow

      5. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Have to ask Arteta why always benching Laca.

        For his players available, front 3 should be Laca Auba Willian.

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          He’s not good enough though. I think the opinion may be split but I agree that he should be benched.

      Sterling > Son for free

      Yes or no?

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Surely someone better to get in, kdb or Jota? Son has tough fixtures (after arsenal where he we score)

        PSA - you can keep the K-Bomb? Trade something else for Sterling?

        By the way, Sterling doesn’t deserve your love.

    • MikeS
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Anyone who is looking for the power three of kdb, Salah and Bruno..

      What happens when kun comes back and hits form? He might become essential too

      1. Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        It would be easy to afford all four, but the days of Aguero being essential are long gone I'm afraid.

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Too old now you think? Do we think cavani will start now for its, lethal with his head. Even if he comes off the bench he could be worth owning.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            He's lost pace and sharpness. He's not too old based on his age alone, he's just injury prone and will never get back to his old best. Obviously if he stays fit he will do a job, but he will get rotated a lot. I'd rather spend the money in midfield as there some great cheaper options.

            1. Wild Rover
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              *Cheaper options up front

            2. MikeS
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Yer true, not the kun of a few years back

          2. Camino Aleatorio
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Cavani is only 8M, if Aguero drops by 2 or 3M then you can compare

      2. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Def looking at the 3 you mentioned

      3. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Have them plus Son.

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          I think that power midfield will be the one for the season;

          Jota-salah-son-bruno-kdb

          1. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Then just take your pick from cheap forwards: Wilson, bamford etc.. maybe ings,dcl, cavani if cash permits

            1. waldo666
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Yeah, cheap up top is what has afforded me that midfield combo, hoping the budget forwards continue to deliver.

            • 5 Years

        That's annoying, just did Rodriguez out for Bruno in hoping to catch the rise

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yeah, same with Hamez to KDB.

          If something happens to KDB or one of my other players in Europe I'm blaming fplstatistics....

            Both Bruno and James will rise and drop before Tuesday for sure. If you did ir for price changes, no way were you gonna be able to hold it till the UCL games are played. So, stop blaming a free site trying to give you some sort of help.

          Risky business to trade in the week. Plus the insane UCL schedule.

          I get it about JR.

          To be fair, he could have been a 13 point player this week, except for VAR

          1. MikeS
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Probably will be this week now unsold, Vs Burnley

            1. MikeS
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              *I sold

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years

            All of the VAR calls were correct...

            1. Camino Aleatorio
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              You are correct, but he was Influential in the game is my point. He was a factor, it was close.

              Like Salah, he could have had 12 points.

              Razor thin margin.

      2. nod_dinho
        • 3 Years

        Reckon Sterling will drop this week? 0.1 off getting him in for free for Jrod.

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Even after jrod goes down tomorrow? Wait to see if he plays mid week

          1. nod_dinho
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I got him at 7.7 so don't think I'll lose value on him even if he drops (7.9 > 7.8) - correct me if I'm wrong...

            Have KDB but trying to double up on city vs Fulham.

              You'd lose 0.1

            2. MikeS
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              You will lose 0.1

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 4 days ago

                Cheers both! Reckon it's worth a -4 (jrod to sterling) or keep jamez for Burnley and then swap him out for jota vs Fulham instead? Pep rotation is infuriating.

      McCarthy.
      Cancelo, Chilwell, Justin.
      Bruno, Grealish, Jota, Son.
      DCL, Kane, Jimenez.
      Button, Ayling, Mitchell, Bissouma.
      1ft, 2.6m ITB. WC in hand still.

      Thinking-
      Jimenez -> Wilson/Antonio/Bamford + Son/Grealish -> KDB (c) (-4)?

      1. MikeS
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Jimi to Wilson definitely

        Then grealish to kdb

        Son will score Vs arsenal and is a season keeper at his price imo

      2. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Good moves, think Bamford from those

        1. MikeS
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Not with bamford facing rock solid Chelsea defence

          1. Joggers Nipple
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            Sure but longer term Leeds fixtures great, if for one week then agree with you

            1. MikeS
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Newcastle next 4 are easier than Leeds next 4..

                I don’t reckon they are, plus it is Newcastle, Leeds are better also

      3. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I went Son/Jimi to Kdb/Bamford this past week.
        Annoying re Wilson but don’t like that he doesn’t get many chances. Still he’s clinical and doing well
        The 0.4 diff also needed to get Salah back

    • Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Morning. Worryingly I seem ok with my current team (yes Cancelo a problem but think will ride that out with Dallas as back up)

      Martinez
      Chilwell Cancelo James
      Grealish Salah KDB Sochek Son
      Werner DCL

      Forster Dallas Brewster Bantwaite 1FT 0.5 ITB

      Looking at longer term thinking-
      Grealish to Bruno and
      Werner to 6.7 ish forward (Bamford?)

      Any input on this or where to go next appreciated

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        *Other options are
        - spend 0.5 on Branthwaite
        - Cancelo to Dias (urgh)
        - Souchek right down and Werner to Vardy/ Aguero

      2. Africa United
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        You want a crazy one ? Soucek to Bruno cancelo to Lewis Werner to the best the remaining cash can get you and play 352

        1. Africa United
          • 8 Years

          Milner and TAA out so who can play right back ?

            It’s a good question.
            Would be risky moving to a back 3. Depending on who is fit in midfield could plug Gini there for a week
            Not many options

      On WC.
      I started my draft by getting Bruno Kdb Salah and Chilwell and then building around them.

      Who should be the next priority?
      Vardy, Kane, Son, Robbo?
