Fernandes climbs above Salah in FPL points table as Cavani edges closer to start

Southampton 2-3 Manchester United

  • Goals: Jan Bednarek (£4.5m), James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) | Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m), Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) x2
  • Assists: Ward-Prowse, Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m) | Cavani, Fernandes, Marcus Rashford (£9.5m)
  • Bonus: Cavani x3, Ward-Prowse x2, Bednarek x1

A stunning second-half comeback won Manchester United the points at Southampton as Edinson Cavani (£8.0m) announced himself as a Fantasy prospect in spectacular style.

The Uruguayan veteran scored two goals and set up another after replacing the ineffectual Mason Greenwood (£7.1m) at half-time.

Other than that, it was Fantasy Premier League (FPL) business as usual at St Mary’s, with more set-piece joy for Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse (£6.0m) and yet another away day haul from Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m).

Saints Alive – For Half A Game

Southampton led 2-0 at the interval as Ward-Prowse continued his blistering recent form with a fourth goal and second assist since Gameweek 6.

Two bonus points meant it was also a third double-digit score in those five starts and the England international is currently in the top ten FPL midfielders – and the cheapest to make that list.

His goal against United, from a free-kick, shortened David de Gea‘s (£5.4m) involvement in the match as the keeper collided with the post in trying to keep out Ward-Prowse’s pin-point effort.

Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wasn’t overly concerned about the Spaniard post-match, probably helped by the fact that Dean Henderson (£5.3m) is an excellent understudy:

A knock just above the knee, so hopefully he’ll be okay for Wednesday, but we don’t know. Let’s have a little scan or check tomorrow, but Dean came on and looked very assured.

The other keeper in action at St Mary’s, Alex McCarthy (£4.6m), was even more assured, producing fine saves to deny Greenwood, Fernandes and Marcus Rashford (£9.5m).

His 20.5% ownership did not enjoy a fourth straight home clean sheet, however, as United turned things round after the break.

Change Is Good

Solskjaer often gives the impression that he’s a conservative manager, but he made some big calls both before and during Sunday’s game.

He handed starts to Greenwood and Donny van de Beek (£6.7m) and the latter again impressed in the balanced role that caught the eye in the Champions League last week.

That role – a mix of defensive shield and midfield conduit – allows Fernandes further attacking freedom, which does dampen the Dutchman’s Fantasy appeal.

The same cannot be said of Cavani. 

Two goals and an assist from 45 stellar minutes positively oozes FPL potential as Solskjaer’s decision to bring the striker on at half-time changed the game.

Small surprise, then, that the United manager was glowing in his praise for the striker:

On the training pitch, in the dressing room and during meal times, how meticulous he is. He is one of the best because of his experience and qualities, that movement. He is one of the best movers you can see. He can peel off the shoulder, he can get in front of you, he can pin you. He wants to be in between the two posts, which I love.

A Foil For Fernandes?

Despite all that love, Solskjaer preferred to start Greenwood ahead of Cavani because the youngster ‘needed the minutes’. And there is also the matter of Anthony Martial (£8.7m), who missed the match through illness.

But United’s almost unhealthy reliance on Fernandes – he’s been involved in 11 of the team’s 16 league goals this season – underlines just how important Cavani could become.

In just 127 minutes of action, he now has more goals (three) than Rashford (two) and Martial (zero) have managed from 1,175 minutes of collective toil up front.

This season’s crazy schedule will demand rotation – particularly around Christmas – but Cavani is beginning to look like a starter, not an impact sub.

If he can take some of the strain off Fernandes, who made it three straight double-digit returns and a fourth consecutive haul on the road, both could flourish.

Whether the pair can combine so well at Old Trafford against far deeper-lying teams than Southampton will be the key, however.

Fixtures Over Form

One thing in the pair’s favour could be United’s short-term schedule.

They’re back on their beloved road, at West Ham, in Gameweek 11 and will also travel to Sheffield United before Christmas.

And their wretched home form – just one win from five attempts – might actually be helped by the arrival of Manchester City and Leeds over the next four Gameweeks as neither side is likely to sit back and frustrate Solskjaer’s side.

Ings Can Maybe Get Better

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl spoke ahead of Gameweek 10 about Danny Ings (£8.3m) maybe being available for the Brighton trip and that could prove to be a nice tonic for his troops:

We had gone seven games unbeaten before now, it’s a good run. And now we’ll need to start another run.

Southampton’s schedule offers little prospect of that, with decent fixtures – Brighton and Sheffield United next and a trip to Fulham – offset by tough home matches with Man City and Liverpool.

Ings would certainly boost the side’s attacking threat, while their defenders are relatively cheap and two, Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.6m and 12.1%) and Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m and 10.1%), are well-owned.

But their backline is a curious beast this season. 

The four clean sheets they’ve kept the second-best record in the league and yet they’ve conceded at least three goals in four separate matches.


Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Walker-Peters (N’Lundulu 90+4), Vestergaard, Bednarek, Bertrand; Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong (Diallo 90), Djenepo (Long 72); Walcott, Adams. 

Manchester United XI (4-3-1-2): De Gea (Henderson 45); Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles (Williams 84); Fred, McTominay, van de Beek; Fernandes; Rashford, Greenwood (Cavani 45).

      Son. Grealish goes nowhere. Grealish is also cheaper so you'd have to raise more funds.

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

      Ziyech and Werner out could be the route.

    2. Joggers Nipple

    2) O Romeu
    3) N Mendy

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years

    Thinking Bellerin to James and roll

    1. BeWater
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Good move. Gives you a nice defence.

    2. BeWater

        Someone at FPL towers really doesn't want James Rodriguez to price drop.

      • RED_ARMY
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        a) Watkins + Chilwell
        b) Wilson + James (-4)

      • Azzastaan

        Current team
        Mccarthy
        Mitchell pva justin chilwell robertson

        Bamford Kane Wilson

        Is this worth a MINUS 12!
        Ziyech Pva Son Robertson > Salah Kdb Dallas Bryan

        Bit brash in the short term but long term would reap rewards for sure.

        1. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          No.

      • Tinfoil Deathstar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Who is the better FPL asset out of DCL and Jota?

        Anyone concerned about lack of Digne and Everton’s looming run of horrible fixtures?

        Shifting DCL to Brewster is my only sensible route of getting Jota in (my midfield already has KDB, Salah, Bruno and Son) but conscious that DCL has been very consistent and Jota still presents something of a rotational risk (albeit a diminishing one).

        1. Azzastaan
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          You don't need jota when you have that midfield already give dcl another week he's been good up to this point

          1. Tinfoil Deathstar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Thanks. Yeah I’m rolling FT this week so will give him Burnley game. Was tempted by the Liverpool double-up in GW12 though, and this seems to coincide with Everton fixture turn.

        2. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I still think it’s too early to tell with Jota

          If he keeps getting the minutes he is the best pick in the game.

          DCL is a rock solid season long set and forget option though

          1. Tinfoil Deathstar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Cheers. I’d be happy to keep DCL for the entire season. Only niggle is all the noise surrounding Jota and the sense that you are missing out on bargain of the season if you don’t get him in soon-ish.

          2. FPL.team
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            What makes you say DCL is a season keeper? I reckon Antonio can keep up with him for a lot cheaper.

      • TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Who to start this week? They play each other

        A) Lamptey
        B) KWP

        1. Z
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          B

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

          Lamptey for me but either works.

          1. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            I just know Lamptey will get a 15 pointer at some point and I don’t want to miss it

            KWP probably have the higher clean sheet likelihood

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

              That's how I see it too. Think Lamptey has immense upside. Currently switching him in and out with Dallas who's ticking over very nicely.

      • Atimis
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Worst week almost behind me, wanna keep FT and should be GTG?

        1. TheDragon

          Looks great (provided Sterling & Cancelo start)

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

            If not I'm gonna delete my team

            This week I went for Vardy (c) and hope he starts today

        100 points behind minileague leader. Hes head and shoulders above everyone this season, it all seems to go his way. How am i supposed to catch up haha

        1. Rupert The Horse

          • 8 Years

          Same with mine. He is so consistent.

        2. DannyDrinkVodka

          so many GWs coming up, you could easily be in first by New Year's

        3. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years

          Captain the player who scores the most points each week.

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

          Keep picking the players you think will score you the most points, don’t even bother to check his team. Make sure you have good captaincy options lined up in advancement, minimise hits wherever possible.

          Plenty of time left, lets face it you only have to beat his score by 4 pts on average every week to overtake him.

        5. Cruyff Turn

        1 FT & 1.7m

        Just pondering over some moves to get Salah back in GW12. Which one looks the best at the moment?

        A) Vardy & Ziyech ➡️ Salah & Bamford
        B) Vardy, DCL & Bissouma ➡️ Salah, Bamford & Brewster -4
        C) Vardy, Ziyech & Bissouma ➡️ Salah, Jota & Brewster -4

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Poor Jamie. Will be kicked out after 3G vs Fulham and Sheff Utd.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Unfortunately I'm left with no other option except Bruno out and not sure about that. I just feel it makes sense to upgrade Ziyech to Salah.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 2 days ago

              True. The idea of having Kane in my team from GW16 onwards is keeping Vardy in my team right now, excellent captaincy fixtures then. Bruno may prove too tempting to ignore though if he starts to become the only asset performing.

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Yes definitely want one Spurs attacker for their run of fixtures from GW16 onwards. Selling Bruno at that time is probably an option as well. I think atm I prefer keeping Bruno over Vardy for the run of fixtures between GW12-15. Hopefully another week of games makes the decision easier.

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  Yeah, let's see. A Vardy haul tonight makes life happier and decisions easier. Not getting Bruno until West Ham and City are done though for sure, trickier fixtures.

        2. DannyDrinkVodka
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I'm doing A

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

            Yup even like that option.
            Although Jota is very tempting. If he keeps starting 7m is a bargain price for him.

        3. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          The one without "One Point' Brewster.

            • 4 Years

          Need help here. Would you keep Son or Kane? Here are my options

          A) Son to KDB for a FT?
          B) Podence and Kane to Wilson and KDB -4?

          1. Rasping Drive

            • 2 Years

            Keep Son

          5. Super Saints
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Every time I have sold Son he has hauled so be prepared

        • Who are all Lukakus
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          1 FT, Son to KDB (c) is no brainer? Would captaine Bruno otherwise. I have enough cash for Son to Salah as well.

          Martinez 4.0
          Robbo Chilwell Zouma (Dallas Mitchell)
          Bruno Son Grealish Jota (Bissouma)
          Kane DCL Bamford

          1. Son to KDB(c). Next week KDB to Salah, or sell Kane and get Salah for a hit.
          2. Son to Salah. Good for long term, but no City against Fulham.
          3. Other ideas?

        • BNMC
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          We know Jota can be streaky from his time at Wolves, but I wonder if he will become more consistent now that he plays in a more attacking team with better quality around him. Thoughts?

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            I think he’ll be the same streaky player he always was

            More consistent. Mane was exactly the same. He was known as a streaky player at Southampton and has developed into a consistently huge threat.

          Aiming for maximum flexibility here as fixtures pile up and COVID bites too.

          Guaita
          Robbo Reguilon Targett

          2.3 itb

          Looking at

          A. Foden or Jota (narrowly missed him this week) from Hamez or Zaha next time. (Still like Zaha for value)

          B. Vardy to Wilson and go KdB/Sterling

          C. Soucek to Grealish

          Sterling this week was the first City player I’ve owned this season.

          Kane and son blank was nice but expect them to get some returns against arsenal and crystal palace who both look out of sorts

            Think it's more to do with Spurs team mindset. The 0-0 versus Chelsea looked one of the more predictable results of the season, Both Chelsea and Spurs went in with the idea of cancelling each other out.

            Spurs defence is looking increasingly attractive to me.

            1. Flair

              3 months, 2 days ago

              A 4ATB defense of Reguilon, Chilwell, James and Dias looks perfect to me.

              1. pingissimus

                • 2 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Dias is still on my radar and may yet add a 3rd premium type at the back to join Robbo and Reguilon.

                Right now happy to be switching Dallas and Lamptey in and out. So far so lucky - RC for Lamptey notwithstanding.

          36 pts. Vardy (c), Grealish, Creswell and Martinez to go. So nervous. Vardy goal 5-10 min would do really good for my mental health.

            Almost similar to your situation.

        • Flair

          3 months, 2 days ago

          Captaincy is intriguing and useful in planning:

          GW11: KDB vs Fulham (H)
          GW12: Salah vs Fulham (A)
          GW13: KDB vs West Brom (H)
          GW14:
          GW15: Salah vs West Brom (H)
          GW16: Kane vs Fulham (H)
          GW17: Son/Kane vs Leeds (H)

          Standout Fernandes fixtures - GW14 vs Sheff Utd (A), GW18 vs Fulham (A)

          It's going to be tricky trying to maximize these fixtures for captain hauls. One of Fernandes or Kane/Vardy will probably need to be omitted and covered elsewhere in my team.

            Salah vs Palace away in GW14 is an option if no Bruno.

            Salah vs Newcastle away also an option in GW16 if no Kane.

            It's tricky getting the balance right.

              Yeah, main issue is I never like captaining against Newcastle or Palace. Not fixtures I enjoy targeting. Prefer Southampton, Leeds, Sheff Utd, West Brom and Fulham.

                Kane, Son, DCL blank taking up a major part of the budget.

                  • 4 Years
                  3 months, 2 days ago

                  The thing is it was unanimously on here that we should keep Kane and Son after all they are the two top scoring players. Despite the hindsighters on here I don't think anymore expected quite such a poor attacking performance from Spurs.

                  1. Flair
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    I wasn't taking shots at you or anything... also it was most definitely not unanimous, many on here were advocating moving on Spurs players - but there was definitely a vocal portion of the community also saying to keep them.

                    It certainly doesn't take hindsight to predict that Jose would park the bus in a big game and that they would struggle to score against the best defense in the league - and that Lampard would play pragmatically like he did against Sevilla and United.

                    You can't blame people who sold them about hindsight. There were two sides.

              Buy KdB for starters.

              1. Super Saints
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                Son to KDB or take a hit and sell Kane for Wilson and upgrade Stephens to KDB?

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

              I would consider Son -> KDB (C) as this weeks FT. Or (C) Kane this GW and move Son to Salah (C) next GW.

              The defense looks concerning in a few areas and missing a few quality value options like Dias, Chilwell or James. I think you can afford to neglect it for a few more weeks though. The strong value forwards in Bamford, Wilson, Watkins also feel ignored here.

              1. Super Saints
                • 4 Years
                3 months, 2 days ago

                If I don't sell Son this week I'll definitely keep him next week and do Kane Stephens to Wilson KDB for free. The cheap defence is on purpose, I have no luck with defenders, had Robbo all season and he did nothing so prefer to go cheap, expect nothing and get nothing. The attack is supposed to make up for it but unfortunately this season it hasn't

              Personally I wouldn't panic. I do think the defence is a bit light. City are a nice to have, but your alternatives are good.
