Frustrating Watkins shows promise as Grealish hauls despite Barkley absence

West Ham 2-1 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Angelo Ogbonna (£4.9m), Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) | Jack Grealish (£7.7m)
  • Assists: Bowen, Saïd Benrahma (£6.0m) | Matty Cash (£5.0m)
  • Bonus points: Bowen x3, Grealish x3, Ogbonna x1

U WAT?

Owners of Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) were treated to a torturous Monday evening as the Aston Villa striker registered a zero-point score in Gameweek 10.

It was not for the lack of trying though, quite the opposite, as Dean Smith’s men were arguably the better side in their 2-1 defeat at West Ham. 

Watkins missed a second-half penalty, watched Trézéguet (£5.3m) spurn his square ball from close-range and had a goal ruled out for offside in stoppage time, which would have provided Matt Targett (£4.5m) with an assist.

The last of those incidents left the sourest taste in the mouth considering how close he was to being onside, as well as the fact that Angelo Ogbonna‘s (£4.9m) robust contact with the forward was a key factor in the position of his arm.

Following two blanks in a row, Watkins’ 9.8% ownership might be getting itchy fingers right now, with several factors at play.

The former Brentford forward has now missed three of his last five penalties, which could be enough to see Jack Grealish (£7.7m) step in and take the next one.

That said, a Gameweek 11 home fixture against Newcastle did initially feel like the wrong time to sell a player who was still unfortunate to blank on Monday night and will surely be fired up to put things to right as soon as possible. The Magpies have conceded in three of their last four away matches too.

But, in this exceptional season, the plot thickens further with news coming out of Newcastle’s training camp over the last 24 hours.

Steve Bruce’s club has been hit with a fresh wave of positive coronavirus (COVID-19) tests, four unnamed players and one member of staff contracting the disease in the latest round of testing.

That has seen the game postponed from its Friday-night slot. It might remain in Gameweek 11 but right now, things are very up in the air for Villa assets.

THE GREAL DEAL

There was more positive news for owners of Grealish who registered his third double-digit haul of the campaign thanks to his first-half goal and securing of maximum bonus points.

The big score was especially welcome considering the feared impact of Ross Barkley‘s (£5.9m) absence from the team after he sustained a hamstring injury in Gameweek 9.

Against Brighton, Villa were noticeably jarred by losing Barkley so soon into the match, his replacement Bertrand Traoré (£5.9m) lacking the same level of understanding with Grealish, whose output suffered accordingly.

It seems as if Traoré was turned to in the wake of Barkley’s injury as he was the closest way of replicating the shape and patterns Smith had prepared for that Brighton game.

However, as already mentioned, Villa were the better side at the London Stadium on Monday night as Smith had the time to prepare a different approach in midfield during the week. He selected the set-piece specialist Conor Hourihane (£6.0m) to play a deeper role and asking John McGinn (£5.5m) to fill in at number 10.

The former Plymouth Argyle and Barnsley midfielder cannot match Barkley for cut and thrust on the counter but his set-play delivery, the threat from direct free-kicks and an eye for a killer pass were important, while McGinn replicated some of the energy and dynamism we have seen in the number 10 role recently.

“Hourihane knows the league, he was with us last season, he knows what’s required of him. He’s an outstanding technician, very good with set play delivery but he’s got a great understanding of the players he’s playing with.” – Dean Smith

Knowing that Villa are not a lost cause without Barkley after all is encouraging news for those considering Grealish. That said, the all-action midfielder could potentially benefit from Villa’s postponement and miss fewer games accordingly.

HEY MICKY

Fantasy managers may have to wait a little while before Michail Antonio (£6.2m) is ready for serious consideration again.

The West Ham forward made his return to the team on Monday night starting as the lone centre-forward in David Moyes’ 3-4-2-1 formation, displacing last week’s match-winner Sebastien Haller (£6.1m).

“It is a big boost for us (to have Antonio starting again). It was a tough decision for us because Haller got a goal at the weekend but (Antonio) just gives us something different.” – David Moyes, speaking pre-match

However, a rusty Antonio offered very little in the opening 45 minutes, isolated from West Ham’s midfielders and struggling to keep pace with those around him. The Hammers resorted to lumping long balls forward, hoping Antonio could run onto them and hold play up. Unable to fulfil that role with much success, it made for a very flat opening period, despite Ogbonna’s early set-piece goal.

Therefore, Moyes chose to replace him at half-time, as well as Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m), Haller and Saïd Benrahma (£6.0m) adding more to West Ham’s cause after the break.

“We made a big call tonight but I think to play Michail Antonio was the right call. He’s just not quite fit 100 per cent. If Seb can keep his form up then it will be useful for us.” – David Moyes, speaking post-match

It only took a few moments for Benrahma to have an impact, as he played in a low cross for Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) to head beyond Emiliano Martínez (£4.8m).

The signs remain very promising for the Algerian international considering that in just three substitute appearances since joining West Ham, he already has three assists.

With Villa pushing West Ham so much even in the second half, Benrahma operated as a left wing-back but what he has produced going forward is sure to trouble Pablo Fornals (£6.5m) for his starting spot on the left-hand side of attacking midfield soon.

“(Benrahma and Haller) came in and done quite well, I don’t agree the full game we played well, but I think that look we are introducing Saïd gently, there were signs there you could see why we are doing that.” – David Moyes

Meanwhile, Bowen registered a double-digit haul from his goal and assist, his first attacking returns since Gameweek 4. His services for the coming weeks are still worth considering though.

80% of the former Hull man’s goal involvements have come at home this season while Manchester United, Crystal Palace and Brighton are the next three to visit the London Stadium this season, combining for just one clean sheet on the road between them thus far.

West Ham United XI (3-4-2-1): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Masuaku (Benrahma 46′), Souček, Rice, Coufal; Fornals, Bowen (Noble 79′); Antonio (Haller 46′).

Aston Villa XI (4-3-3): Martínez; Targett, Mings, Konsa, Cash (El Mohamady 88′); Hourihane (B Traoré 74′), D Luiz, McGinn; Grealish, Watkins, Trézéguet (El Ghazi 73′).

    Triple Villa, potential benchings from Torres and Jota and Dallas my only sub likely to start. Looking like FH for me.

    1. Harper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Jota will start

        I doubt it

      I guess so... Cancelo is so unlikely to play but you never know...

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No worries, I have Tyrick coming off the bench!

      2. davidfromkent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        If Cancelo is unlikely to play what do you think about Sterling as we are owners of both? Would you consider transferring out Sterling this week maybe for Fernandes or going early for Salah? I have only lost Grealish for this GW whom i know you own and would not be able to cover 3 non starters?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          No. Sterling stays. I think he's more likely to start this weekend than Cancelo. The only move I'm considering this week is removing Cancelo.

          1. davidfromkent
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Interesting thanks for your perspective.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Yes if you're lucky you might get 10 starters.

    3. Neves say Neves
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Foden will probably come on and is very likelt to return. Cancelo will get max 1 point probably. I think you need to ask yourself if you think McCarthy will get a cs (if so, Martin->McCa) and if a cancelo replacement will get more than 5 points e.g. reguilon, dias

      1. DannyDrinkVodka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers, it would be fairly depressing if I brought in Dias for Cancelo and Dias was benched

        1. davidfromkent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Personally i would not bring in any City player to replace another for fear a transfer would be wasted for negligible points.

          1. DannyDrinkVodka
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I think I’m going to just hold to Cancelo and hope that Mendy does “his thing”

            1. davidfromkent
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I was determined to avoid transfers this GW to give me the 2 for GW12, that may prove difficult bearing in mind Sterling and Cancelo start tonight and I have Grealish out like many others.

  4. King Kohli

    Best move here?

    A. Martinez > Mendy (forget about the Villa dgw)
    B. Steer > Johnstone/Meslier/Mccarthy

      A

    2. Karan14

      Meslier/McCarthy are good shouts. Could be handy having 2 GKs in these Covid times.

    3. Pat Bonner

      C - not worth a -4

      1. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Even though it frees up a Villa spot to get Grealish later on?

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Fair enough I didn’t see you had 3 villa - can see it makes sense as grealish is best value in game

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Would want to keep Martinez so I’d go for Meslier

  5. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐

      Looks good. This GW is all about getting 11 on the pitch (10 if you're keeperless) so no hits required. GTG.

  9. Lindelol

    It seems Sterling will start then right?

  10. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Option A)

    Grealish + Ziyech -> KDB(C) + 4.3MID (-4)

    Martinez*
    Chilwell Cresswell Zouma
    Salah KDB(C) Son Jota
    VARDY DCL Bamford

    (Steer* Justin Ayling 4.3MID)

    Option B)

    Vardy -> Jesus(C) (for free)

    Martinez*
    Chilwell Cresswell Zouma
    Salah ZIYECH Son Jota
    JESUS(C) DCL Bamford

    (Steer* Justin Ayling GREALISH)

    Would prefer KDB as a captain, Jesus is more of a punt really.

    Which one do I go for?

    1. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Selling Vardy could spectacularly backfire

        So A for you then? 😉

      2. Boberella

      Don’t like either

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Any other suggestion is very welcomed.
        Feels scary to go without any City attacker against Fulham.

        1. Pat Bonner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          This season there’s so many good options and you can’t have them all. Vardy you got for a reason and his fixtures are amazing so need to hold for next 2 at least I think. The only one of your midfielders I’d lose is Ziyech so you could maybe take a punt on mahrez?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            I’d also argue that Bruno is more of a must have than Man City mid just now

            1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I'm trying to deny that Bruno exists, because I don't really want him.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Guess I could take a punt on Mahrez instead of Jesus...
            Thanks for your input! Very appreciated.

          Don't want make a GK transfer. Can deal with 0 points for a week.

      2. King Kohli
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yes and probably take a hit to replace Martinez so that you have a playing gk this week and free up a Villa spot for Watkins for later.

          • 4 Years

          Hmm... Will consider that if I get Meslier/McCarthy that gives me more wiggle room for the Salah move too. Cheers!

      Cancelo > James done, gonna play Martinez & just take the 0 points...

      Who would you rather play out of these two, in place of Grealish?

      1. Dallas
      2. Taylor

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Dallas

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Taylor definitely. Dallas vs Chelsea could be negative points.

      Do we know why Laporte (MCI) isn’t playing?

        He slapped Pep on the d!ck

          Rested so he can play against Fulham instead of Dias

          He wasn't even in the match day squad at the weekend, maybe he tested positive for Covid!

          Hope so. Palace been poor without him. But I doubt it.

        Can't see Sterling playing at the weekend. Think he's dropped rather than injured. Looks terrible.

                Cheers.....looking at it - ill need to downgrade vardy next week to get salah

                So Adams may be best to bring in first - with Bamford next week and not for Chelsea....tough

                  Or paying the price for seasons of high intensity & high press style of play.

              Klopp: I would have rested Robbo if I had the chance
              Also Klopp: Starts Robbo every single game and never subs him off

            Any thoughts on Mahrez this weekend for free instead of having to take a -4 for KDB?

            Benching tonight is surley a good sign for weekend? But I appreciate Pep normally has no logic!

              He will start

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              I would say he's fairly safe to start.

              Literally only Pep knows, wouldn’t take the risk, I
              Imagine if benched and KDB has a dream game

              Be hard to bench a player after scoring a hattrick. I think even Pep understands that.

            He's good enough to start every champs league game but not PL.

              Hi guys.
              Anyone know if Pope will be fit this weekend?
              Steer - > Peacock-Farrell worth a tranny?

              Martinez = Playing without GK. Thats okey and the best way forward I guess, because of DGW and noe interesting replacements.

              Cancelo = Dont think he will start. Could use a FT and go for Dias instead. But not sure Dias would start either ( Coufal to fill inn not exciting )

              Grealish = Benching and playing Brewster instead.

              Sterling = Gotta pray he plays, but have my doubts ( Neco coming in if not )

              Martinez ( Forster )

              Cancelo - Chilwell - PVA ( Coufal, Neco )

              Sterling - KDB - Fernandes - Jota (Grealish )

              Brewster - DCL - Richarlison.

              With 1FT what should I do here ?

              Is Neco Williams likely to be a starter for a few weeks ?
