Neto and Podence strike as Wolves win overshadowed by serious Jiménez injury

Arsenal 1-2 Wolves

  • Goals: Gabriel (£5.1m) | Pedro Neto (£5.5m), Daniel Podence (£5.4m)
  • Assists: Willian (£7.6m) | Leander Dendoncker (£4.8m), Neto
  • Bonus points: Neto x3, Podence x2, Gabriel x1

GET WELL SOON RAÚL

Wolves 2-1 win over Arsenal was overshadowed by a sickening injury to Raúl Jiménez (£8.3m), who looks set for an extended period on the sidelines.

The Mexican forward sustained a heavy blow to the head from David Luiz (£5.5m) and required treatment on the pitch for 10 minutes before he was taken to hospital.

On Monday, the club’s official website revealed that Jiménez had fractured his skull and had undergone a successful operation overnight.

“He’s doing a scan now but he’s conscious, he’s OK. We are worried, of course. He speaks, he’s aware, but he’s doing a scan and now we have to have a proper assessment. He’s in good hands.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

“Raul is comfortable following an operation last night, which he underwent in a London hospital. He has since seen his partner Daniela and is now resting. He will remain under observation for a few days while he begins his recovery. The club would like to thank the medical staff at Arsenal, the NHS paramedics, hospital staff and surgeons who, through their skill and early response, were of such help.” – Wolves statement

During his two-and-a-half years at Wolves, Jiménez has fast become a Fantasy cult hero so it goes without saying that everyone at FFScout wishes him a speedy recovery and the best of health.

BACK OF THE NETO

It is to Wolves’ credit that they were able to focus themselves after witnessing such a serious injury befall one of their colleagues.

“We were massively worried when it happened, you knew straight away it was serious. We hope David Luiz is OK as well. It was a horrible clash of heads, this happens in football, but you don’t like to see it. You’ve got to [refocus]. We had 80 minutes left of the game, so you’ve got to. You go and play and hope you get the win for Raul. We had to do it for him, he’s a massive part of this football club, he’s a massive friend to every single one of us in that changing room.” – Conor Coady

Pedro Neto (£5.5m) was the chief of these as he involved himself in both of Wolves’ goals, his 13-point haul making him the club’s top-scoring FPL asset for the season.

In fact, it was also enough to propel the Portuguese international into the top 10 scorers among all midfielders and, crucially, he is also the cheapest among those.

Costing just £5.5m, Neto has offered 9.3 points per million spent in 2020/21, 1.9 more than similar-priced colleague Daniel Podence (£5.4m), who also netted his second goal of the season against Arsenal.

With Liverpool (away) and Chelsea (home) two of Wolves’ next three opponents, and Spurs (home) and Manchester United (away) waiting in Gameweeks 15 and 16, it is a little while until Wolves attackers will be on our radar again.

However, Nuno’s men face Brighton (away), Everton (home) and West Bromwich Albion (home) between Gameweeks 17 and 19, when their attack might become more viable.

At that point, we may have seen enough of Fabio Silva (£5.2m), who replaced Jiménez as the centre-forward on Sunday, to assess his credentials as a Fantasy asset.

PAIN IN THE ARSENAL

Ahead of Gameweek 11’s north London derby, owners of Tottenham assets will have been licking their lips at yet another dire Arsenal performance – although the data is not quite simple enough to warrant an all-out backing of Harry Kane (£10.9m) and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) for the captaincy. 

The Gunners offered very little against Wolves and have now lost five of their first 10 league games of the campaign, three of those coming at home now.

Interestingly, Arsenal have fared slightly better away from home so far this season, although only defensively.

They have let in eight league goals across five matches at the Emirates Stadium in 2020/21 so far (1.6 per game) but, having played the same number on the road, Mikel Arteta’s men have given up just four goals (0.8 per game). Over the first 10 Gameweeks, only Spurs themselves and Aston Villa have been so solid away from home.

However, where Arteta has tried to tighten the ship at Arsenal, their attack continues to be nothing short of completely anaemic.

Accordingly, owners of Spurs’ defensive assets might be a little more encouraged considering Arsenal’s key man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.6m) has just two goals this season and the Gunners themselves have found the net in just two matches since Gameweek 5.

“It’s something that the day I decided to be a coach I knew that one day I would be sacked or leave the football club but I don’t know when that’s going to happen. In this profession, I know it will happen but I never worry about it. My only concern is to get the best out of the players and give the best possible service to the club.” – Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney, Gabriel, D Luiz (Holding 46′), Bellerín; Xhaka (Lacazette 80′), Ceballos; Saka, Willock, Willian (Nelson 65′); Aubameyang.

Wolves XI (4-2-3-1): Patrício; Marçal, Coady, Boly, Semedo; Moutinho, Dendoncker; Neto, Podence (Neves 70′), Traoré; Jiménez (F Silva 15′ | Kilman 78′).

    Son to Mahrez captain if he’s benched midweek?

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

      Then out again the week after when he gets rotated, no thanks.

  3. dunas_dog

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years

      A looks good to me.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Cheers, the cash could actually make Brewster to Antonio later and give a massive benching headache!!!

    2. jonnybhoy
      • 8 Years

        That would be madness this week.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Expect a low scoring North London derby, neither manager will want to attack

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      a

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years

      B

  7. dark91
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Which is the better option? Both for free
    1) Sterling -> KDB
    2) Ziyech -> Mahrez (double up)

    1. chelseabrad
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Neither

    2. jonnybhoy
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      None save FT

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        I am leaning towards doing that actually thanks. May burn it on replacing Saiss but will see after the mid week games

  8. davies
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    A) Son + Lewis

    B) Sterling + Taylor

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      A

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Don’t think a 0.1 difference in the defenders warrants a 2.0 difference in the mids... B

  9. Scratch
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Play 1 bench 1 from

    Martinez & McCarthy
    Justin & Vestergaard

    1. wulfranian

  10. RIDZ
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Vardy+deadwood to Bruno+deadwood for free

    Is Bruno nearly rise? Or wait until he play UCL to avoid injury

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years

      1. waldo666

      • 11 Years

      Give up I'd say!

  12. Areyouthereyet
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Out: Kane or Vardy? Downgrade to Bamford
    In: KDB or Fernandes? Upgrade Ziyech

    Grealish Son Salah Ziyech 4.4
    DCL Kane Vardy

    1. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Probably Kane
      Wondering if you need both kane and son right now

    2. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Kane out.

    3. Areyouthereyet
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Yea might just ship Kane out.
      In KDB or Fernandes?

  13. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 24 days ago

    I think us Watkins owners have suffered enough already, it’s a joke

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Easy solution, get someone else.

  14. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Have exact money for Son and Rodriguez to KDB and JWP

    Seems wrong but right at the same time

    1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      It's right

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Don’t like JWP at all

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Why? Price, form and definitely fixtures.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 24 days ago

          He offers nothing besides free kick threat... considering he’s the same price as the likes of Watkins and Bamford in attack I just can’t see the appeal for him

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Ok well he and they look the part

          2. Cruyff's Eleven

            Nice hair?

    3. Zilla
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Many better options than JWP

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Like Mane for 6m more?

      2. Stupendous
        • 8 Years

        Immaterial now Hames dropped cheers

    4. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I wouldn't lose Son. Losing both Son and Jrod for KWP seems even worse.

  15. osceola31909
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Every year there is a highly owned, successful player I don't own. This year it is Grealish. I want to bring him in, but I don't see how to do it without losing one of De Bruyne, Son, Fernandes, or Kane. I could downgrade DCL to Wilson and upgrade Jota to Grealish, but that just seems silly. Any ideas?

    Ryan - Martinez
    Chilwell - Zouma - R. James - Lamptey - Mitchell
    KDB - Bruno - Son - Jota - Anguissa
    Kane - DCL - Bamford

    1 ft, 0.1 itb

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      DCL to Brewster, Anguissa to Grealish

    2. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I don’t think he’s even all that needed to be honest man,

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 24 days ago

        He’s got the fixtures and the form, how can you want to ignore that?

        1. UNDERWORLD7
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Only room for so many, and wouldn’t wanna remove any of Salah Bruno Son or the likes of KDB for him, unless going uber cheap up front I see no way for me (below) to fit him in anyway.

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

      Nice defence!

      1. osceola31909
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        LOL. Didn't plan on three Chelsea defenders. It just sorta happened. Hard to justify getting rid of any of them now though.

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

      I don’t think your midfield needs him.
      If you’re set on it, remove Son (fixtures). But I think leave it be.

    5. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Find a way to get Grealish, a great player to own, just keeps ticking over and still a good price imo

    6. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I have a fodder striker (Brewster), allows me to run 5 heavy hitters in midfield including Grealish.

  16. Ragabolly

    Risers: Fernandes (10.9) Mahrez (8.3) Chilwell (6.2) Ward-Prowse (6.1) Neto (5.6) Fabianski (5.1)

    Fallers: Sterling (11.4) Rodríguez (7.8) James (6.2) Vinagre (4.1)

      I am itching to go Son to Mahrez before the rise, but I know I will get burned if I do.

      Why does ppl sell Sterling before Fulham home ?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years

        They only base transfers off a single GW

        because he may not start ?

      3. Railwayman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Probably because he is an 11+ mil. player who performs like a 5.5 player.

      There's a tragedy.

    11. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Sterling 0.2 cheaper than KdB, could possibly be 0.3/0.4 by Friday. Could be a good differential for people who don't have the little extra money. Yes, he's a rotation risk but he is as explosive a City asset as you can get. Kun and Jesus back should help him. And even with the rotation, you'd expect him to start most games.

    12. hewittj1

      Those who sold Sterling to Mahrez are going to get stung badly I imagine

      Shame Rodriguez couldn't hold for 1 more night, before we can see the Liverpool match tonight...

  17. UNDERWORLD7
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Martinez
    James - Cancelo - Chillwell
    Soucek - Salah - Ziyech - Bruno - Son
    Vardy - DCL
    ________________________________
    Forster: Brewster - Mitchell - Dunne

    Which option or who scores more here guys?

    A) Cancelo (if he plays) + Ziyech + DCL
    B) Dallas + KDB + Bamford. (I like Leeds going forward)

    Option B is what I’ll have to do to get KDB, and don’t want to lose Son.

    Cheers gents

        Cheers PB, yeah would certainly be for long term, would give a midfield I would basically leave untouched barring injuries

    If Cancelo plays mid week would you...

    A. Cancelo -> R.James
    B. Roll FT and do Richa + Cancelo -> Bamford + R.James next week
    C. Do B for a hit this week

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Think I'm going to keep him, just make sure you have a bench player to cover him.

      What other options are you weighing up?

    Need to something boys
    This season is getting away frm me and ml leaders 90-100 away frm me.

    2fts and 0.2itb

    Martinez

    Robbo/PVA/Coufal

    Salah/Jrod/Grealish/Bruno

    Vardy/Bam/DCL

    (Dallas/Soucek/Mitchel)

    What the hell do I do??

    Suppose city and Chelsea defender are a priority?

    HELP!

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Get Chilwell or James

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Vardy right down and J rod to KDB
      Next week use some of the cash for PVA to Chilwell

    3. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Salah to KDB + PVA to Chilwell

    4. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      You need to replace either Jrod or Bamford with someone who is week-in-week-out (C) material.

      1. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Why? He's got Salah Bruno and Vardy?

        1. Esalman
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Just my opinion but this season it's better to invest in midfield and use 2 budget striker up front.

    5. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Your squad is fine. 100 points to make up at this stage isn't too hard so long as you don't make desperate moves too early. I would consider moving Salah on for KDB/Sterling if the people you're chasing all have him. Everton attackers probably out next week especially since your rivals probably all have DCL

  23. Boberella
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 24 days ago

    Who's in for Vardy (C) next week?

    1. Esalman
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Vardy never (C) never bench.

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

        Never (C)? Not sure about that logic. (and stating the obvious a bit to never bench a 10m player!!)
        I've had some lovely, rank boosting Vardy captain hauls in the past.

        1. Esalman
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          Good for you 🙂 unfortunately I've been burned by him most of the time. Now I'd rather not own him at all than own and (C) him.

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

            That's fair enough then.
            His hauls generally come away from home and SHU is as good a fixture as any at the moment.

            1. Scratch
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 24 days ago

              Can't think of any £10m+ player I've ever had who I wouldn't ever consider captaining

              1. Nice to Finally Michu
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 24 days ago

                Jesus the closest for me
                Never quite 10m but at about 9-9.5 I never would

                1. Scratch
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 24 days ago

                  Was also thinking Ozil about 5 years ago when he was floating between 9 and 10 mil... but i'm pretty sure I still captained him on a couple of occasions

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

                    Rashford a shout for another at 9.5m. Would never own with Bruno around but wouldn't cap

                    1. scubasmithy
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 24 days ago

                      Its Bruno or nobody from United imo, he is way ahead in terms of contribution, spread of points and big hauls. I'd want Rashford for about 7.5-8.0 before I'd switch.

    2. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Brave considering City fixture and their last game performance. Could work out for you for sure though.

      not me

    4. Flair

      Depends on how much you expect Rodgers to change after that abysmal display. Ideally as much as possible but you never know.

  24. noquarternt

    Martinez
    Coady Chilly Cancelo

    1Ft 1.0 ITB

    Rashford + JRod -> KDB + JWP -4?

    Terrible rank so happy to try anything a bit different.

    Or do I need to prioritise bench cover for Christmas? All help is appreciated.

      Prob save with a Vardy downgrade next week and get Salah for someone?
      Or just Bruno to Salah next week

    Anything worth a hit here?
    Not sure if Fernandes (c) is going to match KDB/Salah next GW.
    Am definitely going to be moving for Salah next GW at the latest but not even sure who to make way yet.

    McCarthy.
    Cancelo, Chilwell, Justin.
    Bruno (c), Grealish, Jota, Son.
    DCL, Kane (vc), Wilson.
    Button, Ayling, Mitchell, Bissouma.
    0ft, 4.4m ITB.

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Nice team, hard to believe you've got that much in the bank when looking at your squad!

      Yeah its tough, team looks good- Kane out I guess? Not flavour of the month anymore...

      1. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        May have issues with this team soon in defence especially.
        Great fixture for Spurs and Mourinho v Arsenal though so may hold for that and reconsider selling again. Cheers.

    2. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      I have a similar issue. Son my only route to KDB and would be for a hit. Just not sure. Son could get good points against Arsenal.

      1. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Yeah- seems strange to remove Son with Arsenal next.
        May just skip KDB and aim for Salah next week.

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

          All about who you Captain if you don't get KDB/Salah I suppose. Bruno is a strong captain choice and if Spurs get a couple vs Arsenal and Jota is involved in any Pool goals (likely), then it'll be a good week regardless of City & Salah performance.

          1. Sz21
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Yeah- think with Bruno's form he is good to go for captaincy.
            Son close behind.

    Further evidence the game is entirely luck.. rank should be half of what it is currently based on this luck predictor

  30. Pep Roulette

    Son to Grealish for free? Also have Kane.

      Instantly thought no way, then had a think and am quite undecided. Sorry, that's not really helpful! I suppose the deciding factor could be what you do with the savings?
