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).

      I've got a team value of 104 mill and I cant afford that team

      Needs some Son in there

    7. HashAttack

      I'm 0.9m short - looks like you must have had some of those players for a while - e.g. DCL

      I'm on 104.6 TV / 102.7 SV

  3. ace3.1415

    Would you prefer son vs arsenal or rashford vs west ham?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Both were not overly convincing in their last game but I prefer Son. Arsenal are struggling with Partey injury and WHU defence is solid

    2. jomikijiq
      • 6 Years

      Son

    3. turd ferguson

      Son

    4. Shineonme

      Rashford not for me

    Over the last 6 matches Bamford has missed 8 out of his 10 big chances.

    Are we sure he is a good option?

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Was going to ask Leeds fans the other day.

      Is that the real Bamford they were expecting for this season?

    2. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      12 months, 3 days ago

      that was his trait, that's what he was known for in the championship aswell, nothing new

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      This is Patrick Bamford we are talking about. He is known for missing sitters.

      Chelsea will be tough but he's still a good option. If he's getting all these chances, and firing all these shots off - chances are he'll score a few.

    4. fr3d
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Bamford is a shockingly bad player, one of the worst in the league. But the team around him provide so much service he destined to score a lot of goals. They've had a tough schedule and the fixtures are easing up a bit now after Chelsea

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        he's not a bad player at all. His finishing however.....

      2. Sanchit
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Not a bad player.
        A bad finisher.
        A striker has to do a lot more than just finish.
        There is a reason Spain's starting striker has not taken his position yet.

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Cheers guys!

      I guess he's bound to score a few goals with Leeds creating so many chances for him but he looks like a frustrating asset to own. Will consider getting him in next week maybe.

    6. tisza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      still a 6m striker with 7 goals in 10 games in a team are always going to try and attack.

  5. McPollolocco
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Reece James or Regiulon for a long term at next gameweek?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      James

    2. turd ferguson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Reece james mops up the BAPS

    3. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      James, i really like the chels def double up if you can

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      There is honestly not a lot between the two defences at the moment.

      Both know how to park the bus. Chelsea have been conceding few less headed attempts & shots in the box - but other than that, they are relatively close.

      Both will get a spot of rotation over the Christmas break.

      James is probably the better standalone option with his BPS baseline, crosses & our defensive form. However Regulion is not bad either since doubling-up on defence is great when it works, but sucks when it doesn't.

  6. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    take the sterling benching on the chin, easy save FT to then move with 2 frees to get Mo in next week

    McCarthy
    Dias Targett Chillwell
    Sterling KDB Grealish Ziyech
    DCL Bamford Vardy

    Bamford to wilson or cavani?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      hold Bamford

    2. thepuntmaster
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hold

    3. turd ferguson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Wilson will be a great differential

      1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Just be patient on Wilson and see if the Newcastle covid situation gets any worse. I'm bringing him in but not till Friday deadline. He should have had his test by then.

  8. thepuntmaster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    Which couple going forward?

    A) Zaha + Wilson/Antonio/Bamford
    B) Ziyech + Adams/Welbeck

    Thanks

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Willing to take a one week punt on a City mid for captaincy this week before switching that player to Salah for GW12. Awaiting CL ofc but thoughts on these?

    A) Mahrez
    B) Sterling
    C) KDB
    D) Just get Salah in directly

    1. Tonyawesome69

    A bit lost at what to do here, with 1 FT and 0.4 ITB...

    Lamptey Chillwell Robbo Dallas Ferguson
    Rash Soucek Grealish Ziyech KDB
    Kane DCL Baamford

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      i'd bank the transfer

  11. davies
    • 7 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    Anyone considering selling Sterling this week?

    I can’t take a benching + price drop needed for Salah funds.,,

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      hasnt crossed my mind, just take the benching on the chin and look forward to his point vs fulham

    2. Tonyawesome69
      • 2 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      At that price point and not a certain to start these days compared to KDB, you must consider getting rid now

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Considering. Most likely won't do it and pray he starts.

    4. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Considering it as I fear him being benched vs Fulham too - Looks like Sterling will drop in price soon and Salah is likely to go up

    5. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      I got rid yesterday for salah

  12. Mr Ozil
    • 6 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    How to fit in KDB?

    1FT, 0.9 itb

    Martinez
    Chilwell Coufal AWB
    Jota Fernandes Grealish Son
    Kane Vardy DCL

    subs: Steer Bissouma Dallas Mitchell

    1. Ha.
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      How much does Son and AWB leave you for a defender?

  13. ZakyJ
    • 6 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    Martinez Forster
    Coufal Robbo Justin Chilwell Mitchell
    Salah Bruno Grealish Son JRod
    Watkins DCL Brewster

    1.7itb 2FT

    whats my best move:

    1. Robbo & JRod > KDB & 4.8m Def (KWP/Dalas)
    2 JRod & Salah > KDB & Jota

    1 obviously gives my a star studded midfield but cheap elsewhere

    1. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years

      1

  14. Ha.
    • 6 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    To get KDB in

    Ziyech, Grealish, Ryan

    >

    KDB, JWP, Steer

    (-4)

    Y/N

    Or could do the above without the goalkeeper transfer but for Armstrong or Neto in place of JWP.

    1. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Ziyech Grealish to Neto KDB looks good

      1. Ha.

        Thanks

  15. turd ferguson

    How on earth do i get KDB in?

    Maccarthy
    Chilwell James Cancelo Kilman Mithcell
    Salah Grealish Son Bruno Bissouma
    Kane DCL Bamford

    0.6 ITB

    Is there any other option other than- Kane & Grealish > Watkins & KDB ?

    1. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Ern

      Salah to KdB
      KdB back to Salah

      Isn't this... obvious

    2. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      You might not need him. Focus on the players you have not the ones you don't.

    3. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      You should maybe be worrying more about your defence

    4. turd ferguson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      good advice guys thanks. Think i might prioritise Cancelo transfer out

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

        No - you obviously need KDB this week 🙂

      2. Sanchit
        • 6 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Transfer out Cancelo?
        He got his rest. He will play now.

    5. Pegboy
      • 11 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Save the FT or sort out your defence - three of them are serious benching risks.

    1. Ha.

      I will allow it

    2. Black Knights
      • 9 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Watkins, Coufal, Martinez and Grealish for me, to avoid a fat red when Vardy delivers.

  20. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    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

    D) Grealish, Ziyech & DCL ➡️
    Salah, Raphinha/6.5m mid & Bamford/Antonio -4

    1. No end product
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      I'm thinking A but with Wilson + doing Cancelo>James

    2. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      You'll do these now or next week?

  21. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    What should I do with this lot? Roll the FT?

    Want to get Bruno in ideally, but means Losing Werner & Grealish, possibly for Wilson & Bruno?

    Martinez (Steer)
    Cancelo - Coufal - Lamptey (Dallas & Taylor)
    Salah - KDB - Grealish - Soucek (Burke)
    DCL - Kane - Werner

    0.4m itb

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

      Kane or Werner has to go if you want Fernandes.

      Can’t have them all. Fernandes is currently a better option than both.

      But yes I’d roll the FT

      1. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Werner & Grealish > Fernandes & Wilson looks like what I'll be doing next week if I roll the FT, can't get Fernandes and a half decent forward into my team any other way..

        If I lose Soucek & Werner, it leaves me with like 3.9m for a striker!

    2. Ha.
      • 6 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      I'm contemplating losing Grealish

      Talisman or not, the majority of his points have come in two fixtures

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

        His next 6 fixtures are perfect though

        And he is 1000% nailed to start each week which is valuable over Christmas

        1. Ha.
          • 6 Years
          12 months, 3 days ago

          He's arguably delivered in his harder games; blanks against Sheffield, Leeds and Brighton.

          It is tough though, and all it would take is one KDB benching for there to be tears.

    3. Pacer.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The problem at the heart of it here imo is owning both Salah and KdB. And imo that's a long term issue.

      Bruno is essential.

      That triumvirate of Werner, Soucek, KdB needs to be budget/Son/Bruno imo and Salah and KdB fight it out depending on fixtures.

      There is far too much value this year and a rock solid captaincy choice in Bruno/Kane (£21m base price) to be into Salah/KdB for £23.5m

      1. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        I can't and won't lose either KDB or Salah, season keeprs imo.. had them both from the start! I'm happy losing a premium forward to facilitate a midfield of Bruno, Salah & KDB..

        It unfortunately means losing Grealish & Werner, and tbh i'm not overly upset about either of those going!

        1. Pacer.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          12 months, 3 days ago

          £23.5m is an insane amount to invest to give a team 4 Captain choices.

          Comes a point where they are not good value if they are not regularly a captain

          Players like Grealish offer incredible value. Maxing out on premiums is not the way to score most points

      Might get a ban

        For what? Didn't watch the game, only seen the goals.

          he posted something on his instagram stories that iwill probably be deemed racist regardless on the intent

      2. mookie

        Or do you mean I might get a ban for even asking that?

          looool. def not that unless the mods are anti Utd

    2. thegaffer82
      • 10 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Not really. I'd like to see him start consistently first. But, if you have no other fires to put out, it could be a really shrewd differential.

      1. mookie
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Well, I have to replace Jimenez.

    3. DRIZ ✅

      Good ttransfer will be starting now

    McCarthy Button
    Chilwell James Dias Ayling Mitchell
    Mane Bruno(c) Grealish Jota Soucek
    Kane DCL Bamford

    A) save ft
    B) Mane to KDB(c) (salah in for Kane+Grealish next week)
    C) Mane to Salah

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years

      B

  24. Camzy

    My team looks fantastic on paper this week. Let's hope my disastrous City transfers for this week start paying me back.

    Good to roll FT?

    Martinez Forster
    Cancelo Zouma James Lamptey Mitchell
    KdB Sterling Son Grealish Jota
    Vardy DCL Davis

    1. internal error

      How confident will you be that Sterling starts if he plays 90 mins midweek? worst case scenario-You have an easy route to Salah

      1. internal error
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        Bruno looks really dangerous with VDB in the side. He looks like a bigger threat in open play

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

        Not confident regardless but I can't remove Sterling ahead of FUL. He gets the game. Regardless of what he does, I can then do: Cancelo + Sterling > Dallas + Salah with my saved 2 FTs. This is the plan.

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

      Yep Sterling the only headache but if there's a fixture that makes it worth holding and hoping, it's that one!

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

      With Lamptey 1st sub you can afford a Cancelo disappearance, though with Mitchell and Davis up next it may become more nervy. G2G unless any major news is shared, perhaps related to the Villa game.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Yes save. Sterling to Salah an easy move next week.

    5. PascalCygan
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Yes. Keep an eye on City minutes but that could be amazing this GW.

    6. Klaren
      • 4 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      You'd end up with 10 if Cancelo and Sterling stay on the bench again but if you want to take that risk, it looks good.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        12 months, 3 days ago

        I fielded 9 this week. I'm not afraid!

        1. Klaren
          • 4 Years
          12 months, 3 days ago

          Haha same (8 + 10 minutes gametime of Jimenez)

    6. mookie

      I will be disappointed with anything less than 3 attacking returns.

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

        Only 30 will do, personally.

      Hopefully 17 points or more as that is the total of all my ML rival captains (DCL, Bruno, Son and Hamez)

    12. Shineonme
      • 5 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

    McCarthy
    Zouma - Dias - Robbo
    Foden - Bruno - Grealish - Salah
    Adams - Vardy - DCL
    [Soucek - Dallas - Branthwaite]
    1 FT; £1.3m ITB

    Thoughts on this strategy?
    Salah > KDB this week
    Foden to Jota next week and go Salah-less until it hurts too much...

    1. Cojones of Destiny
      • 3 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      yep sounds like a good plan, trust your instincts mate that got you where you are in OR))

        i do

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

      *an own goal

      And I agree

  28. ResultatFar
    • 3 Years
    12 months, 3 days ago

    Jimenez and Burke need to go this week. Who to get in for around 13m? I am currently looking at Bamford and Foden - any better suggestions?

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      12 months, 3 days ago

      Jota 1000x better option than Foden, and I say that as a Foden owner. Until he starts he's nothing more than a little bit of nausea every time the lineups come out

  29. KAPTAIN KANE

    12 months, 3 days ago

    Sky Sports have confirmed Raul Jimenez suffered a fractured skull in yesterday’s clash with Luiz.
    He is ‘comfortable’ in hospital.

    Thoughts are with him, may he recover in due course.

    I’ll get the popcorn in.

    1. Camzy
