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′).

    Liverpool defense looks so vulnerable. I don't think I'm gonna get rid of Son in 12 like I originally planned...

    1. Pat Bonner

      I’m keeping both Kane and son. When you look closely at their run of fixtures they're actually really good now

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Same here,they will be involved in more than 50% of Spurs goals.
        Goals/assists between them would be gold,keeping if no injuries.

    I'm really late for the Chilwell train. Is he worth 1.1 more than James?

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      No, not now that James seems nailed.

        Wrong answer. Still worth it.

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

      1. Dr. Ante Pavlovic
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Burnley will concede

        1. 2OLEgend
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Martinez will not play

            1. Bonus magnet
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Is this now confirmed as definite

        2. antis0cial
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Not worth it, Pope likely back anyway, I believe it was a head injury / concussion protocol

          1. 2OLEgend
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Thanks mate

            Only if you have 2ft and nothing to use it on

        3. Dr. Ante Pavlovic

          Grealish out for Mahrez for a hit just for this week?

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Tempting with the fixture but I’d stick - not worth a hit as you’ll want grealish back as well

          2. 2OLEgend
              1 month, 26 days ago

              No way

            • Team Bobcat
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              If you are taling grealishout for one week then it has to be to a guaranteed starter. Mahrez is not that. Imagine if mahrez is rested

          3. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Will you prefer Richa > Jesus(C) for a hit ?

            1. Little Red Lacazette
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Oh dear, Jesus for free is scary enough. No.

          4. NoSalah'd
              1 month, 26 days ago

              Should I do Targett to Dallas or Ryan to Meslier in a few gws?

              1. Pat Bonner
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Dallas looks good long term as got attacking threat

                1. NoSalah'd
                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    Cheers, Ryan has some supposedly good fixtures on paper in a few gws too. I'm kind of glad I got rid of Grealish last week now!

                    1. Pat Bonner
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      1 month, 26 days ago

                      I wouldn’t be. Grealish best value in the game so get him back ASAP

              2. jai1212
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                The team looks a lil messy now that the game has been postponed:

                Martinez*(Nyland)
                Chilwell Lamptey Cancelo* Coufal (Dunne*)
                Mane Sterling Jota Rashford (Grealish)
                DCL Richarlison Brewster*

                Dunne + Martinez should be the priority, right?

                1. El Fenomeno R9
                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Same 3 Villa players,probably go without GK and keep for DGWs

              3. Little Red Lacazette
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 26 days ago

                Best striker upto 8.6M that is not DCL or Bamford?

                1. antis0cial
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  I’d be tempted by cavani if not banned

                2. Pat Bonner
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Those are the standout picks in that price. Maybe Ings if he’s fit

                3. ZAMUNDA
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Wilson, Antonio (when fit)

              4. Brosstan

                1 month, 26 days ago

                Martinez owners wish they had Guaita now. Outscored Martinez this gw, about to outscore him again.

                1. Team Bobcat
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Martkinez grealosh and watkins (owner)

                  This is a curve ball like no other. Patience required now more than ever

                  1. ZAMUNDA
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    Same 3 Villa, might do watkins to adams and 2nd keeper to McCarthy

                    1. Team Bobcat
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 26 days ago

                      Both seem like sensible options. I have ben contemplating adams but I have 3 non playing bench in mitchel and Jorginho.

                      Makes more sense for me to swap those two for playing defeders.

                      Walker James Bednerek my defence favourites at the minute and replacement for Jorginho stoll up in the air.

                      It will mean playing semedo as my 11th player.

                      I have mendy bought in as my 2nd gk. Had considered McCarthy and Meslier also

                      1. Team Bobcat
                        • 4 Years
                        1 month, 26 days ago

                        God the spelling mistakes.

                        B: Rodri Semedo Mitchell Jorginho

                        Rodri Mitchell > Mendy Walker (-4)

                        Leaves me with the bare 11 starters.

                        I think wakins is a season keeper..

                Opinion here appreciated, 1FT 3.0ITB:

                Ryan (Martinez)
                Chilwell Cancelo* Taylor Coufal (Mitchell)
                Bruno Jota Son (Burke Grealish)
                Vardy DCL Werner

                A. Original plan Son > KDB, risk Cancelo and play 10 player
                B. Son > KDB [C] and Cancelo > James (-4)
                C. Grealish > Mahrez, risk no KDB
                D. Burke > Mahrez and Cancelo > 4.6 def (-4), rick no KDB

                1ft 0.1m itb

                Roll the transfer with Cancelo rotation risk?

                Not in a good position after the Villa postponement, never should have gone with a triple up.

                Do I need to FH this or can I get away with it?

                Martinez
                Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey Coufal
                KDB Bruno Zaha Riedewald
                Vardy DCL

                Forster Neco Grealish Watkins

                Will have to take 0 from Martinez and just hope that Cancelo starts and Zaha is back in time for the weekend, Riedwald another not nailed

                  Don't waste your FH. Take a hit if you have to

                  Hit might be on the cards then.

                  I have 1FT and 2.0 ITB but planned on keeping the funds for Zaha/Vardy > Salah/7.1 in GW12.

                  Any recommendations?

                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    Salah + Bamford seems sensible. Leaves a few quid ITB.

                    1. Werner Bros
                      • 5 Years
                      1 month, 26 days ago

                      It was one of the potential planned moves for GW12. But not sure what to do for this GW. Don't really want to lose Vardy yet

                • 9 Years

                Think I'll do Grealish and Robbo to KDB and Dallas.
                Would give me this:

                Martinez
                Lamptey Chilwell Dias
                KDB Son Ziyech Jota Bruno
                DCL Vardy
                Brewster Dallas Mitchell

                Thoughts?

                  Will you lose money on grealish? I’d be tempted to lose Ziyech instead

                    I would yes mate. But can get him back for Ziyech I guess in future.

                    Or just do for Ziyech now and play the defender I bring in for Robbo up to 4.6?

                Mahrez, KDB(c), Bruno, Ziyech, Jota

                Is this a decent midfield for this GW worth a hit?

                  Is this your current midfield, or are you thinking of taking a hit to get to that?

                        I wouldn't. Mahrez can easily be benched

                How much of an increase in points on your non Free Hit team would you consider to be a successful use of the Free Hit chip?

                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  Think it’s the most powerful chip after wc so 25-30pts

                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 26 days ago

                  50% but would be happy with anything over 30%

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    So 30 points at 50% of 60 points, or 18 points + at 30%

                    Cheers

                      Yeah, exactly. Funnily enough, when I was doing the math in my head I also had 60pts as a base-point

                  I think it could pay off well this week....

                  I think I’m doing it.

                  I own;

                  Martinez (no 2nd keeper)
                  Cancelo (coufal as back up v Man U)
                  Grealish
                  Wilson

                  Only Brewster to come in....

                  1. Miguel Sanchez

                    • 4 Years
                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    If I didn’t take a hit I would be looking at something like this:

                    Chilwell Justin Coufal
                    Rashford Son Rodríguez Jota Bissouma
                    Werner (c) Vardy

                    Think I could beat that with a FH by quite a bit if City sunk a few past Fulham

                      • 9 Years

                      I used it last year and regretted it so much come the second half of season when people used it to navigate double gameweeks etc. I saw people hitting crazy points with it. This is always in the back of mind now with all the chips esp playing in a single week

                        1 month, 26 days ago

                        KDB (c), mahrez and Jesus could beat your team alone......

                      1 month, 26 days ago

                      A free hit could smash that to pieces in my opinion.

                      I think I’m doing it.... It’s a strange season, so let’s do some strange moves 😉

                City are simply a very mediocre side these days when KDB doesnt play. If they dont make the most of it, Chelsea, Spurs and Man United will look back at this season the way Arsenal and Spurs look back at the season Leicester won

                  That's a great point. The title is there for the taking if someone goes on a strong run and all three teams you've mentioned have the potential.

                  Who do you think would be most likely to take advantage of the Liverpool and City frailties we're seeing this season? My money would be on Jose and Spurs.

                Is Kane + Son -> KDB (C) + Wilson for -4 still worth it or a no-go with Spurs turning the corner on fixtures?

                Cheers!

                    Mane was in if he didn’t make the tackle. Clear red imo but I might be biased

                Which of Ederson or Mendy do you think scores the most over the next 10 games? Much in it?

                  Quite the difference in price/value. Mendy the better pick of the 2

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Thanks, I appreciate Mendy is better value, but I’m pretty settled with my team structure, so wondering if the extra cash might be worth it for a while. I’ve been burned going for the “value” option in the past!

                Regrettably I punted on dbl manC defense, will keep Dias so;

                Cancelo to Reguillon or James

                    1 month, 26 days ago

                    He's been a nightmare pick. 1 goal, 1 yellow card and 2 benchings since I brought him in.

                      • 11 Years

                      This is a worst case scenario too..if he scored the only goal tonight it might tempt Pep to reward him with a start this weekend but looking unlikely now

                      1. Il Capitano
                          1 month, 26 days ago

                          Yeah, horrid. Even if he's subbed early it means nothing, taken off early v Olympiakos last week then benched at the weekend.

                      Pep tends to pick his teams on how they train. Every day. Maybe Raheem is getting lazy.

                    Happy to keep Martinez and bench Grealish but I’m considering Semedo to James and play over Brewster. Next week Chilwell and Ziyech to Salah and 3.9. Good plan?

                    Martinez to Mendy tor free?

                    Wanted to go ahead and do it anyway but now it seems perfect timing.
