More home struggles for Vardy as Lookman’s FPL form continues

Leicester 1-2 Fulham

  • Goals: Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) | Ademola Lookman (£5.0m), Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) | André-Franck Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m), Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.3m)
  • Bonus points: Cavaleiro x3, Anguissa x2, Lookman x1

KING SOUR STADIUM

Jamie Vardy‘s (£10.2m) lacklustre home form reared its ugly head yet again as Leicester suffered a 2-1 defeat to relegation-threatened Fulham in Gameweek 10.

As has often been the case at the King Power Stadium this season, the Foxes’ front-man was unable to have much influence on the game, faced with yet another home game where the opposition dropped deep throughout.

He did show some smart play when he knocked down a second-half cross for Harvey Barnes (£6.9m) to fire into the top corner but, apart from that, Vardy never got a chance to stretch his legs.

A five-point score will feel somewhat anti-climactic for over one-million Fantasy Premier League managers who captained Vardy, especially considering it was against Fulham who, up until now, have boasted one of the division’s worst defences.

But his struggles at the King Power Stadium are nothing new, as has been well documented this season. Across his four Premier League home appearances this season, Vardy has averaged just 3.3 points per game.

Such information is likely to cast doubt on Vardy’s Fantasy credentials for upcoming home meetings with Brighton (Gameweek 12) and Everton (Gameweek 13), especially if he could not even buck his home-trend against Fulham.

Thankfully for his 28.7% ownership, Gameweek 11 takes Vardy into a much more favourable scenario: a trip to Sheffield United.

80.3% of his points have come on the road this season, an average of 10.6 points per away game, while the Blades are the only Premier League team without a clean sheet in 2020/21.

BARNES DOOR

The 4.1% invested in Barnes were among the rare winners of Leicester’s defeat to Fulham as he scored the Foxes’ only goal of the game.

Finding the net, the former West Bromwich Albion loanee certainly sent a message to manager Brendan Rodgers who left him out of the starting XI initially, despite a strong performance midweek.

Neither James Maddison (£7.0m) nor Dennis Praet (£5.5m) provided much support for an isolated Vardy as Rodgers went with a 3-4-2-1 formation which lacked the width to really stretch Fulham’s deep block.

It was in the second half that the hosts were able to make some limited progress, as Barnes and Cengiz Ünder (£5.9m) came on for Praet and wing-back Luke Thomas (£4.3m) respectively, allowing for a slight improvement in the fluidity of their attack.

TAKE A LOOK

By contrast, Fulham went about Monday night’s encounter with a cut and thrust that Leicester could not replicate.

The result itself might have been a surprising one but it was a fully deserved win for the visitors, especially considering Scott Parker made the bold decision of benching key players in Aleksandar Mitrović (£5.7m) and Tom Cairney (£5.3m).

Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) was handed the centre-forward role and, despite his embarrassing penalty miss last time out, was brave enough to step up for the latest Fulham spot-kick and slammed it past Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m). That ensured the Cottagers did not become the first Premier League team to miss three penalties in a row.

“I asked him yesterday, ‘are you ready to take this penalty if we get one?’ and he looked me dead in the eye and said ‘yeah, I’m ready’. The courage, the bravery to step up there, they’re things that we need.” – Scott Parker

There was also a strong showing from Ademola Lookman (£5.0m) who has also responded well to his recent penalty woes.

Since sending a stoppage-time spot-kick into Lukasz Fabianski‘s (£5.0m) arms at West Ham, the Fulham winger has gone on to get himself a goal and assist across the last two matches, going close with some direct free-kicks too.

Matches with Manchester City (away) and Liverpool (home) over the next two Gameweeks are likely to ward off any Fantasy interest but as Fulham’s fixtures turn more positive in Gameweek 13, Lookman’s propensity to shoot could mean he finally fulfils his potential as a budget midfield option.

“He came in for a lot of stick when he did the penalty, rightly so, you need to take your medicine after that. What is going to determine, like anyone Cavaleiro – last week he slips for the penalty. I’m not on Instagram but I can only imagine what was being said, the jokes for everyone to see and Cav would have seen that. Ade’s performance tonight, earned the right to score a goal.” – Scott Parker

Leicester City XI (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel; Fuchs, Evans, Fofana; L Thomas (Ünder 46′), N Mendy (Iheanacho 70′), Tielemans, Justin; Maddison, Praet (H Barnes 46′); Vardy.

Fulham XI (5-4-1): Areola; A Robinson, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina, Decordova-Reid; Lookman (Bryan 90′), Zambo-Anguissa, Reed, Loftus-Cheek (Lemina 77′); Cavaleiro (Mitrović 87′).

    exact money and 2FT for Son + Maupay -> Jota + Jesus, quite tempted...

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      More than tempting

    2. suddenorgan
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      ooh, or Bissouma + Maupay -> Jota + Brewster?

      1. Shineonme
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Brewster is rubbish

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          This is true, but so is Maupay plus he will get Jota instead of Bissouma which is a clear upgrade.

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        That is probably better so long as Brewster does not have to actually play

        1. suddenorgan
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          yes that may actually prove to be a problem over Christmas, assuming Jota will get rotated a bit too

    3. McSauce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      do you have KDB/Salah already?

      1. suddenorgan
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        just KDB

  2. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Who would you rather have long term, Salah or Kane?

    I'm thinking of transferring Kane to Salah after next week...

    1. Roysgotnoboys
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Salah for me. Going to get him after the Wolves game

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Mo contest

    3. Olson
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Question can't be answered without context. Salah isn't good value unless he's a solid captain choice.

      1. Oooo Matron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Well I'd captain him for Fulham. I'd also have KDB & Fernandes so there's long term options for captain. I'm just not sure Kane will score masses in the current Spurs setup.

        1. Olson
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          KdB and Salah is unsustainable and unnecessary imo.

          In a season where Bruno and Kane are showing big as captaincy options then anyone who puts £23.8m into those two players who offer poor value but good captaincy options is making bad investments imo.

          One max

    4. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Is there a chance salah is on the bench against Fulham? Mane wasn't happy being on the bench the last game. Could be salah's turn on the bench coming on for mane this time . Kopp did say he will be giving his players rests around dec time because of the games they have to play.

      1. Oooo Matron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Interesting shout. Surely Salah the least prone to rotation out of anyone? Mid week game might give us a clue, but Liverpool can't afford more dropped points.

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Salah looked ready to hand in a transfer request when Klopp took him off against Brighton. I can't see him being benched

      3. Dr Van Nostrand
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        No chance the final 3rd v Brighton was Salah's rest. Mo missed 2 internationals and the league match where Mane played the full 90 in all of those. Mane has looked far more tired. They'll both start tonight and Sunday since its 5 days rest till then

      4. Dr Van Nostrand
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Salah just will likely be rested against Midylland next week

    5. TNB
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Mo Salah without a doubt!

    6. McSauce
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Kane + Foden --> Wilson + KDB (C)

            Cross your fingers this week. Longer term, you don't need one of your forwards.

        • Von Lipwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Would you rather have:
          A) Robertson in a 442
          B) Jota in a 352

          I think this is a tough call....

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            It is tough. Looking at fixtures, I would probably go with Robertson. I expect several cleansheets plus the attacking threat he provides makes him the better pick imo

            1. Von Lipwig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Thank you for the insight. I agree and thought it was only me

              1. Rasping Drive
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                My pleasure. I have both in a 3-5-2 fwiw

                1. Von Lipwig
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  I could do that with a Kane downgrade... but not convinced with Watkins/Bamford/Wilson really. Kane is so pricey though

                  1. Rasping Drive
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    Yes, Kane has something like 10 goals in 11 league games against Arsenal so would be v risky selling him this week. I sold him for Watkins two weeks ago but used the spare cash to upgrade Podence to Bruno, so yes you need to consider what you can do with the extra money but you know that anyway

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Rather have Jota because he is so cheap and not a fan of back 4 usually

            1. Von Lipwig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              I know what you mean, but his price is very similar to Robbo and the swap doesn't feel like an upgrade really. Jota could be rested, can't keep up his current numbers... Obviously I have Robbo in a 442 as is, but I just don't see a valid 7m option in MID better then him... Is Jota that man? Torres? Sorry I'm just spit balling

              1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                I actually typed Robbo to start then changed my mind when I realised that Jota is still half-a-mill cheaper and allows you to avoid a back 4 every week.

                Im about to take a horrible -8 which involves removing Kane and Son. Goodbye LMS...

                  Have you seen Arsenal recently?

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  Why are you doing this.

                  Holding Kane and Son is the differential that will help you climb when others struggle to afford or find the transfers to claw them back. Now is the time to hold, not sell

                  1. Brosstan
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    I see Mou employing the same strategy against arsenal and liverpool. Then you also have wolves whose manager is an enemy or football.

                    3 of the next 5 games are bad

                    1. Brosstan
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      Also I'm 100 points behind the leader in the MLs that count. No difference if i finish last in those leagues or mid table

                    2. Trophé Mourinho
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      I see it different, Arsenal will get smashed like 3-0. Liverpool will be high scoring and wolves will lose like 3-1

                    3. Olson
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      Spurs are going to absolutely batter arsenal. Did you see the Arsenal first X1? I was, and not using any hyperbole, shocked. They are so incredibly average. Absolutely nothing to be scared of. They can't score. It's going to be comfortable

                  2. Rasping Drive
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    holding them could just as easily lead to a plummet in rank.

                    1. Olson
                      • 6 Years

                      I've been holding them the last two games and had greens because the transfers I've saved have been used to keep other parts of my team ticking over.

                      It really doesn't have to be a problem.

                        Youve had greens despite owning them...

                        1. Olson
                          • 6 Years

                          Yes. I have stuck long term with Bruno and Wilson. Stuck long term with Kane and Son. Stuck long term with Chilwell, Grelaish, Martinez and Konsa.

                          I'm using my transfers to keep 4 spots ticking over and do things like bring KdB/Salah in and out of one berth, bring in Jota, plan for when Justin becomes obsolete, build up lots of players with an extra game etc.

                          Losing Kane and Son is a much bigger deal than people think. They WILL want them back in a few gameweks, so that's 4 transfers absolute minimum.

                          The way I see it is that you can't play all your team short term, there's only 1FT a week for 15 players. Got to identify which players are your spine that aren't worth the transfers. That's Kane and Son for me. Swallow the few mediocre weeks and blanks for the sake of the team

                        Green or red arrows are irrelevant. You have to consider points you’ve gained or lost from keeping or selling them.

                        1. Olson
                          • 6 Years
                          2 months, 29 days ago

                          That's next to impossible to do because making such transfers impacts everything you do in subsequent weeks, directly and indirectly.

                          You can say 'oh if I'd transferred out Kane to Vardy I'd have got 3 extra points' but then you have to consider what you would have done with that transfer if you hadn't done Kane to Vardy, and what your next move is in both those cases. It's a mess.

                          FPL isn't a short term game, as much as people want to think it is

                      Not enough in the bank for both, and neither feel like necessary surgery given Arsenal fixtures and City.

                  In a draft league, what would you prioritise as a transfer?

                  A) Mendy in for Cresswell
                  B) Raphinha in for Fornals

                  Play KWP or Lamptey?

                    • 8 Years

                    LampT

                  2. BeWater
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      I have KWP but if I had both I would play Lamptey.

                    • Trophé Mourinho

                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      Yea Lamptey feels the right choice, hoping for cs’s isn’t fun, at least Lamptey has attacking merit. KWP in reality does not, despite his rare shot last game

                      1. BeWater
                          2 months, 29 days ago

                          As a non owner, no cheap defender has terrified me as much as Lamptey. How the hell he ended up on -1 against Villa I'll never know.

                      Am I crazy to go with both Sterling and KDB and no Salah?

                      Have Bruno and Jota other mids.

                        no good choice for fulham if both play then shift sterling to salah

                          Thats what I was thinking!

                          Chasing big time so hope they both would play!

                      Would love some opinions on this plan...

                      GW11: Salah > KDB
                      GW12: Foden to Jota, and go Salah-less until it hurts too much...

                        Sounds ok, I’d be tempted by just doing Foden to Jota this week.
                        After seeing Fulham yesterday I don’t think next week is necessarily another battering like Burnley.

                        All the goalies, Wilson(150k transfers in this week) to play GK and concede 8.

                      I have Cancelo, do people think Mendy will start ahead of him whilst he is fit? Seen a few articles that say he will need to fight for his place.

                        Mendy, when fit, is first choice. He hasn't been fit for a long time but the weekend proves that he's back and his goal backs that up

                          Fixtures are too good to avoid, when you look at their start they had the hardest start of the top teams. Plus neither Aguero or Jesus have been banging them in. I'm confident they will start stringing a few wins together now. I took put in Mahrez & Torres this gameweek which paid off.

                          Normally when you take a player out of your team you fear what they might do in the next game, but I'm taking Mitrovic out.

                          So Leicester beat Man City and Fulham beat Leicester, then that means Fulham beat Man City, right?

                              Leicester were 3 goals better than City and Fulham were 1 goal better than Leicester. Only one logical conclusion - 0-4 Fulham probably with a Mitro hatrick of penalties after I transfer him out.

                                  Depending on what happens midweek I’d be tempted by either Ziyech to Mahrez or Sterling to KdB (if it looks like Sterling is benched again)

                                    Yes. Thinking of those options. Or even Ziyech to Grealish with more funds available to get Salah in 12. Mid week games are really important.

                                      Actually yes Grealish! Had forgot about him for a moment

                            Which big hitter should make way for Salah in GW 12

                            A) Bruno
                            B) KDB
                            C) Kane

                              C or D imo.

                                I'm seriously considering D and just getting Jota in for Ziyech instead

                            What's the better move this week - have 2 free transfers. Downgrade Soucek - Bissouma OR swap Cancelo for Dias/Mendy?

                              Out of those, I would possibly swap to Dias but not essential unless Cancelo doesn't look like starting at the weekend...

                            terrible GW from me with only 44 points all out but also some bad luck - Hamez, Watkins, Robbo...

                            For GW 11 team is:

                            Martinez
                            Roboo - Chilwell - Zouma
                            Son - Hamez - Ziyech - Grealish
                            Vardy - DCL - Watkins

                            I also have 5 mil at the bank.

                            Which should I do here:

                            1. OUT: Hamez or Ziyech?
                            2. IN: KDB or Salah or Bruno?

                              I would do JRod to KDB personally

                              James > KdB. That looks like a super easy transfer to me.

                            Want both eventually but Rodirguez to which one this week?

                            A) Grealish

                            B) Jota

                              Grealish surely. He's playing a decimated Newcastle team in the form of his life.

                                Wait and see what happens with the Newcastle game. If it goes ahead with a depleted Newcastle team go A.
