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′).

    Who is most likely to start in defence for city at the weekend?

    My prediction

    Walker, laporte, stones, Mendy

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I've given up trying to guess.

    2. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Same as Burnley

    3. Kryptonite666
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sounds about right

    4. Fer Fuch's Ake
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      That's what I think it will be, but Pep lurks this site and picks against our predictions

    5. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Dias over stones imo

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

        You think he's the one city defender who's nailed?

        1. FDMS All Starz
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Not sure about nailed but being as the best right footed CB in the club he should start along side Laporte/Ake who are both left footed

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

            Fair point. I do feel he is going to give stones a run in the team against the weaker opposition. Just my gut feeling though.

  2. waldo666
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    1FT and 0.8 ITB

    Ryan
    Chillwell Semedo Mitchell
    Salah Bruno Son KDB
    Watkins** Wilson** Mitrovic

    (Nyland** Bissouma Lascelles** Douglas**)

    A) Lacselles and Douglas/Mitchell to Neco Williams and 4.6 (-4) (gets me 11 on the pitch)
    B) A + Mitrovic to Bamford (-8)

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Actually with Mitro copping bench time, A probably still means only 10 players.

  3. Mr. Chimes
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 2 days ago

    What should be my priority?

    a. Get KDB
    b. Get Bruno
    c. Get both
    d. Get Chelsea defender

    I have 2FTs. Would need to sell Kane.
    Current attack is Salah, Ziyech, Son, Grealish, DCL, Bamford.
    Defense is Reguilon, Robertson, KWP/Ayling.

    1. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      c

      1. Mr. Chimes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Would require a -8 and Son + Kane out. Would you still do it?

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Not sure I would but there will be plenty of hits flying around this week, I'd want to keep Son if possible.

          1. Mr. Chimes
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 2 days ago

            I really messed up missing the Bruno train. I dunno if it’s gonna keep rolling or if I should get on the KDB train before it takes off.

  4. Kryptonite666
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Who are the two best defenders to own apart from Chilwell, City & Lamptey ?

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

      Reece James and Stuart Dallas for value. Reguilon is excellent too.

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

      Robertson, Coufal/Cresswell, Dallas/Ayling.

  5. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Need a captain, who would you move out? 1FT & 4.0itb

    Son - Podence - Rashford - Bruno - Bissuma
    Vardy - DCL - Adams

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

      Rashford > KDB obvious transfer.

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

        I'm the one remaining person not sold on KDB though. 1 goal all season feels quite a risk when Salah, Vardy & Kane all have decent match-ups.

        1. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          definition of being due 😉

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

    Captaining Sterling is captaining a guy with zero goals and assists in the last four PL matches. That's insane. Wtf am I thinking?

    1. Kryptonite666
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Insanity is the definition of captaining City over and over again and expecting a different result 😉

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

        Only captained City twice this season, got 2 and 9 and now they're back in form

        1. Kryptonite666
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I was kidding ofcourse. KDB is my captain choice this week.

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

            Probably the same tbh

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

      Do it. Give into your anger.

  7. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Lost on previous page. Was planning to save FT this week but yet another spanner in the works!.... do I just suck it up and have no GK and play Cresswell or switch one of the blankers out?

    1FT 0.5itb
    (Martinez*)
    Robbo*, Chilwell, KWP, Cresswell
    KDB (C), Bruno, Ziyech
    Vardy, Bamford, DCL
    (Forster) (Grealish*, Stephens, Branthwaite)

    Options if I use an FT include:
    Grealish > Jota / Martinez > McCarthy / Stephens > Riedwald/ Romeu

    I've left Robbo starred because post-match comments and getting himself strapped didn't look promising!!

    Cheers all

    What are folks doing with Cancelo ?

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

      This is one of my decisions this week. I'm thinking of a sideways move to Dias as I really want a city defender. But with him starting tonight I'm not so sure.

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Same dilemma. Stones could very well start with Laporte

        Which way are you leaning?

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

          As per my comment above I think the back four will be

          Walker, laporte, stones, Mendy.

          I think I'm close to accepting I'm not going to be able to rely on getting a city defender in for this run.

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

            Get Reece James.

            1. Phil's Stamps
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              THis.

    2. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Not getting him in my team!

    "Signing Cancelo a week before fixture swing can give FPL owners the edge"

    https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2020/11/20/signing-cancelo-a-week-before-fixture-swing-can-give-fpl-owners-the-edge/

    Absolutely one of my favourite FFS Articles this season.

    1. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Was thinking it was a weird statement at that time. Has not aged very well either.

    2. Flair

      3 months, 2 days ago

      😆

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Matt Targett and PVA also racking up the points

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

        But the fools are not the people who write that (webpage never refuses HTML code). The fools are the people who follow it and create a buying frenzy around the likes of Cancelo, Brewster (6 weeks ago), Hamez (10 weeks ago) etc.

        Can't get 'em right all the time - I appreciate that!

          it's a tough article to write. He was definitely scraping the barrel that week.

      • FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 2 days ago

        The thing is, it should have been obvious there was risk with mendy on his way back, and pep. And if getting cancelo, they should have known the risk and brought him in with other players to cover if he's benched. Because its not like he's never going to play again, might well play this weekend and get a 12pter. I dont understand those who got cancelo and are now getting rid because of 1 benching

    5. The Wizard of Ozil
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      A) Steele & Grealish -> McCarthy & Jota (-4) selling Ziyech for Jack down the line

      B) Free hit this week, meaning I can get the likes of KDB & Salah in and keeping The villa men for upcoming fixtures

      1. Keeptrying
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Not B.
        If you consider Free Hit now with just one match postponed and tw (?) players affected, then you will be regretting it later on when real carnage with BGW, DGW (let alone any bigger covid outbreak) happens!

    6. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Start A. Anguissa or B. Semado?

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

        B

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

      With Villa leaking goals, I think the GK switch could easily be worth it in the medium to Long term. Had Cash ITB to get Mendy and thats a huge upgrade.

      1. Kryptonite666
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Villa will have a DGW soon, so isn't it just a shifting of points to another Game week?

        If you'd take -4 for Martinez to Mendy, you should make the transfer

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

          It would be shifting the points if game for game you think the 2 keepers get the same points. But, Martinez doesnt make many saves, doesnt keep clean sheets and plays for a defence that regularly concede 2 goals+...so i wouldn't call it shifting.

    8. tbhogal
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Despite the villa news, is this still worth doing these moves for -4 guys?

      Ziyech > Jota
      Son > KDB

      Martinez (Steer)
      Chilwell, Robbo, Coufal (Lamptey, Mitchell),
      Bruno (C), Son, Grealish, Ziyech (Podence)
      Bamford, DCL, Kane

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

        Does getting KDB require the -4?

        I like Ziyech vs. Leeds tbh

    9. TimoTime
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Just did Steer > McCarthy

      Any need to -4 this?

      McCarthy
      James, Chilwell, Coufal
      Bruno, Ziyech, Burke, (K)DB
      DCL, Bamford, Vardy

      (Martinez, Grealish, Dunne, Mitchell)

      2.5 ITB

    10. Labile
      • 2 Years

      What to actually do?
      1FT 0 ITB

      Foster
      Lamptey Chilwell Fofana
      Mitchell/Burke Bruno (S)terling Bowen
      DCL Kane Vardy

    11. Babit1967
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I have so many decent captaincy options this week, it will be tough to pick

      A) Sterling
      B) Son
      C) Bruno
      D) Vardy

      1. Flair

        1. Babit1967
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Also tempted by Son but yes you’re right, the man is on form

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

        Havent seen anybody talk about Vardy, despite him having a fantastic away record and facing the worst team in the league on current form

        1. Babit1967
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, I think Fulham probably put off a lot of folks, was expecting a haul at least

    12. zman575
        3 months, 2 days ago

        hey guys need some help following mahrez's rest and the villa game being called off.

        current team is as follows

        martinez forster
        chilwell lamptey justin coufal mitchell
        bruno kdb ziyech grealish burke
        werner vardy dcl

        I have 1 FT

        A. Roll a transfer
        B. Vardy and Burke to mahrez and bamford (this means playing bamford this weekend away at chelsea ahead of coufal who wont do anything at home to man utd)
        C. Martinez to meslier

        I was already considering b before mahrez's full rest tonight as it gives me 2 players for an average jamie vardy and both leeds and city have juicy fixtures.

        Thanks all

      • HVT
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        If I get Che instead of Bamford for Jimmi, I can upgrade Burke > Jota (-4) and bench Jack.
        Thoughts?

          Adams is decent, and with ings around the corner, he will do better. Just not sure about your plans because clearly ends with a benching headache and money sat on the bench each week. Solves a problem for 1 week and creates another. Would prefer using bench cover to deal with this week

          Shiting to Mendy

          In a league where weekly points matter so Forster > Johnstone likely. Keep Emi for his DGWs

          Steer to McCarthy with FT. Decent rotation and frees up a Villa spot

        Martinez
        Coufal / Kilman / Chilwell /
        Jota / Son / Grealish / Bruno
        DCL / Kane / Werner (c)

        Bench: Kilman, Stephens, Douglas

        A. Son to KDB and play Kilman
        B. Son + Kilman —> KDB + 4.6
        C. Son + Kilman —> Mahez + any defender
        D. Any suggestion?

        I have Grealish, Watkins, Lewis and Cancelo in my team who i also need to get rid of due to Pep's rotational shenanigans with Mendy.

        I am kaput.

          Snap. I have exactly the same players as you.

          My plan is I'm very likely doing Watkins to Adams.

          My original plan was to deal with Cancelo. I still think I'm going to move him on but not sure for who yet.

            Yeah iwas thinking Adams as well! Possibly take a -4 and bring James in for Cancelo. First hit of the season by the looks of it. Good luck!

        Anyone on here think Neto at 5.6m is worth signing?

        - out of position (generally plays up front)
        - guaranteed to start
        - Wolves are a team with lots of possession so he will get chances, tends to create his own anyway
        - Cheap - can enable other transfers

        OK - they have tough fixtures but Wolves are still no pushovers for most teams in this division.

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

          Currently third highest point scorer in the sub 7m category

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

          Solid option, but loss of Jimmy will affect Wolves

        3 months, 2 days ago

        I want Jota, but my Midfield is KDB Son Grealish Fernandes + DCL Kane Wilson.
        Is Jota > Grealish obvious pick ?

        1. FPL_Hazards
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I wouldn’t sell Jota for Grealish, no

      • AD2110
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Would you go for this for -8?

        Cancelo, Watkins, 4.3 mid —-> Lamptey, 4.3 forward, Jota

        Switch to 352

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

          Lol no. Youre losing cancelo for lamptey, in a -8? And what 4.3 forward exists in the game? Just sounds crazy, u wont make 8pts back on those transfers..

          1. AD2110
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Yeah maybe not ha. Just have Grealish, Watkins and Cancelo with no proper bench cover. Cancelo isn’t likely to play from now on so Lamptey going forward is the better pick. Then Jota will most likely outscore Watkins over the next few too...

        Why is everyone buying Mendy over Fabianski?

        1. FPL_Hazards
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Surely thats obvious

        2. Fit_to_drop

          15 of Fabs points came in 1 game. Hammers generally dont keep clean sheets. Looking at save points and occasional penalty saves mostly. Not a good route to points

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

            But they are keeping cleansheets this season. Mendy doesn't get any save points or bonus

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

          4 cleansheets in 5 games..

        Martinez target cancelo barkley wilson, i think its time to take a mega hit and fix the team up ?

      • FDMS All Starz
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Which transfer makes sense? Or should I save FT?

        A) Son -> Kdb (c)
        B) Rashford -> Kdb (c)
        C) Podence -> Mahrez/Torres (c)
        D) Save FT (captain Bruno/Vardy)

        Front 8:
        Son - Bruno - Rashford - Podence - Bissuma
        Vardy - DCL - Adams

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          B since you already have Bruno IMO

        2. Keeptrying
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          B)

      • Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Have to downgrade Robbo to an awkward 5.0 for KDB inclusion, pick one:

        A) Lamptey
        B) Justin

        Cheers!

          Justin possibly very short term so Lamptey or Dallas
