The FPL Round-Up: Ings update, Rodgers’ rotation and Watkins ‘hat-trick’

Leicester City 2-2 Manchester United

  • Goals: Harvey Barnes (£6.7m), Axel Tuanzebe (£4.2m) own goal | Marcus Rashford (£9.5m), Bruno Fernandes (£11.0m)
  • Assists: James Maddison (£7.1m), Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) | Fernandes, Edinson Cavani (£7.8m)
  • Bonus: Fernandes x3, Luke Shaw (£4.8m) x2, Youri Tielemans (£6.4m)

Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.0m) seventh double-digit return of the season couldn’t stop Leicester City scrapping to a point in a lively lunchtime encounter at the King Power Stadium.

The Manchester United midfielder set up Marcus Rashford‘s (£9.5m) first-half opener, albeit from a lucky deflection, before latching on to an Edinson Cavani (£7.8m) pass and steering a shot past Kasper Schmeichel (£5.5m) as the game entered the final 20 minutes.

Maximum bonus took Fernandes to 12 points on the day – the fifth time he’s hit double figures in away matches.

Leicester’s most popular player, the 25.7%-owned Jamie Vardy (£10.1m), had a quiet day until the 86th minute, when his shot went in off Axel Tuanzebe (£4.2m) for an own goal and an assist for the forward.

The Foxes’ other strike came from Harvey Barnes (£6.7m), who was handed a third straight start and scored for the first time since Gameweek 10.

The assist came from James Maddison (£7.1m), his first return since a monster 16-point haul in Gameweek 12.

Fernandes’ fine form has earned him an early lead in the race to be Gameweek 16’s most popular transfer-in, although the Red Devils’ schedule – visits from Wolves and Aston Villa before a Gameweek 18 blank – is not exactly inspirational.

Leicester also have an upcoming blank, with trips to Crystal Palace and Newcastle offering the prospect of returns before that.

Gameweek 16 could see Brendan Rodgers ring the changes, however, with the Leicester boss saying after full-time:

There’ll be one or two players that have just come back that there will be question marks over and that we’ll need to have a look at. The likes of Tim Castagne, who has just come back from a hamstring injury, are we going to risk that 48.5 hours later?

Yes [I could rest Jamie Vardy or Youri Tielemans]. I’m not prepared to put a level of risk in that means they’re going to miss six weeks to two months with an injury. We’ll make changes – the number, we’ll have to wait and see.

As for United, Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) missed out and Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) was forced off with a recurrence of his back problem midway through the second half; both players will be assessed before Tuesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also provided an update on Rashford:

Leicester City XI (4-3-2-1): Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Fofana, Justin; Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton (Perez 81); Barnes, Maddison; Vardy

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelöf (Tuanzebe 66), Bailly; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, James (Pogba 54); Martial (Cavani 75)

Aston Villa 3-0 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Bertrand Traore (£5.9m), Kortney Hause (£4.4m), Anwar El Ghazi (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) x3
  • Bonus: Hause x3, Emiliano Martinez (£4.9m) x2, El Ghazi, Traore x1

A screamer from Anwar El Ghazi (£5.7m), a tireless if profligate performance from Ollie Watkins (£6.1m) and a red card for Tyrone Mings (£5.4m) were the key takeaways from a thoroughly entertaining game at Villa Park.

The 13.9%-owned Mings was sent off after collecting two yellow cards in six forgettable minutes involving Wilfried Zaha (£7.5m) and high levels of stupidity.

Aston Villa were already ahead by then, courtesy of Bertrand Traore‘s (£5.9m) second goal in a week, the midfielder steering home after Watkins’ shot was parried by Crystal Palace keeper Vicente Guaita (£4.9m).

Traore became the unfortunate victim of Mings’ indiscretion as he was replaced by centre-half Ezri Konsa (£4.8m) on the stroke of half-time.

But any hopes of a Palace comeback were squashed by a counter-attacking masterclass from the home side after the break.

Kortney Hause (£4.4m) doubled the lead after a Watkins header hit the bar, before El Ghazi curled home a beautiful shot on the angle from the striker’s lay-off.

A hat-trick of assists broke Watkins’ five-match barren spell, but he could have had a huge haul on the day, missing three big chances and having 10 attempts.

As for El Ghazi, that was the midfielder’s third goal in two Gameweeks – and his fourth in four – but trips to Chelsea and Manchester United, plus a visit from Spurs, might dampen Fantasy enthusiasm for him and his team-mates.

This was another game to come too soon for hamstrung loanee Ross Barkley (£5.9m), who will again be absent in Gameweek 16 as he is ineligible to face his parent club.

Mings owners aside, it was another good week to be on a Villa defender as Dean Smith’s side kept a fourth straight clean sheet.

Palace, meanwhile, remain in a wretched little spot. Winless in four matches, they’ve now conceded ten (and scored none) over the last two Gameweeks ahead of a visit from Leicester on Monday.

Aston Villa XI: (4-2-3-1) Martínez; Targett, Mings, Hause, Cash; Luiz, McGinn; El Ghazi, Grealish, B Traoré; Watkins.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze, McArthur, Milivojevic, Schlupp; Zaha, Benteke. 

Fulham 0-0 Southampton

  • Bonus Points: Jan Bednarek (£4.7m) x3 Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m) Alphonse Areola (4.5m) x2

No need for lazy clichés about Christmas crackers at Craven Cottage as Fulham and Southampton played out a goalless draw involving just three shots on targets between them.

That meant clean sheet points for the second time in three Gameweeks for that rarest of beasts – the Fantasy manager with a Fulham defender in their sides.

It was two shut-outs in four for Southampton, but aside from keeper Alex McCarthy (£4.6m and 22.9%), their most popular defender, the 15%-owned Jannik Vestergaard (£5.0m), brought in zero points as he missed out with a knee injury that could sideline him for a number of weeks.

Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, who was also without other regulars Danny Ings (£8.3m) and Nathan Redmond (£6.4m), gave an update on all three post-match:

Both Redmond and Ings have muscle injuries and we will have to see. They are both out, but not as long as Jannik. Vestergaard will be out for four weeks, maybe even more, we don’t know.

Jack Stephens (£4.6m) deputised for Vestergaard well enough, but those thinking of swapping him in for the injured centre-half should bear in mind that Southampton face Liverpool and Leicester either side of a Blank Gameweek 18, with Leeds as the other team making up their Double Gameweek 19.

As for Fulham, their new-found defensive solidity will be sorely tested when the likes of Spurs, Chelsea and Man United come a-calling over the next few Gamweeks.

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; A Robinson, Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; Anguissa, Reed; Lookman (Kebano 90), Loftus-Cheek, Cavaleiro; De Cordova-Reid (Mitrovic 83)

Southampton XI (4-4-2): A McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Walker-Peters; Armstrong (Djenepo 90+3), Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Walcott; Adams, S Long (N’Lundulu 90+2).

        Hmm.. Asking as a completely biased person who may or may not have captained KDB and don't own Salah..

    3. AC Yew
      • 2 Years

      He has to match Bruno. Minimum 1 goal and assist + CS points + BAPS

    4. Peskey
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Small chance, but unlike Bruno, Mohamed S. usually needs more than just a goal to get bonus points

        I think he will. If the game was away then maybe not but it’s at home. I’m sure his Mrs can cope for a few hours. The world still goes around when babies are born your know!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Minor injury he carried on after.

          1. DonBenzema
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Cheers. Still think I wasn't wrong on pulling the trigger on KDB and DCL -> Vardy and Rashford.

              1. IRBOX ⚽
                • 3 Years

                Ouch. Both likely to miss next GW.

            Che

          3. jomikijiq
            • 5 Years

            Wood if you are buying now since his next two are so much better, Adams if in DGW

        3. Finding Timo
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Is KDB to salah a sensible move now?

            1. jimmy.floyd
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              ASAP

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Yes, it's something I desperately need to do too but I keep ending up needing to use transfers on other players and can never justify doing KDB to Salah for a hit. Probably should just bite the bullet..

              1. Finding Timo
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Cheers will wait until press conference to make sure salah will play next game though

            3. Jurgen Flopp
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Currently no Spurs. Would you double up with Kane and Son or get Rashford instead of Kane?

              Free hitting GWK 18 so no issue there.

              Cheers.

              1. Well you know, Triffic

                • 10 Years

                Kane

                • 4 Years

              Martinez
              Konsa Matip Taylor
              Salah Son Bruno Grealish
              Bamford Firmino DCL

              Steele Soucek Kilman Mitchell

              DCL and Grealish to Kane and 4.6m mid -4?

                No.

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Problem is most of my ML have kame and think him alone over his next two can score more the DCL Grealish and -4

                  1. JabariParkersEyelid
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    You are gutting your team and sacrificing depth to shoehorn Kane into your side.

                    There must be an easier way to get Kane than turning 2 very good players into 1 for a hit. It's not worth it.

                    For example, you have Firmino. It's far easier to sacrifice him, surely, if you absolutely think Kane is necessary (which I dont).

                    1. Oggle22
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      Very true mate thanks for the help and advice may look at Firmino and another out to bring Kane in but Firmino has decent fixtures?

              Thoughts on where to go from here? 2 free transfers and £1.0 in the bank...

              Martinez
              Cancelo - Chilwell - Dallas
              Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish
              DCL - Bamford - Watkins

              Subs: Forster - Bissouma - Coufal - Kilman

              1. Tcheco
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Depends on your BGW & DGW strategy but I would want Son & Taylor for the next 2

                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  I can almost do KDB & DCL > Son & Kane

                  Just need to find 0.2 somewhere

              Better Spurs attacker for next 4 games - FUL, LEE, avl, shu?

              A) Kane
              B) Son

              I will look to captain my Spurs attacker against Leeds & Villa.

              1. jimmy.floyd
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  I'm happy with 3 premium attackers. Don't want 4.

              2. Jon Walter's Hatty
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Im likely going Kane just for the all round chance of points and he usually thrives around this time.

                1. Chrisitis
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Son went crazy this time last year. Played everything as well.

                2. Karan14

                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Yeah I'm also tempted to go Kane over Son.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Son I think ... for those two captaincy games

                1. Karan14
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years

                  He's certainly more easier to get in and out of the squad between GW15-19.

              Thoughts on KDB to Mane then consider getting KDB back after 19?

              Would mean owning Salah and Mane 16, 17 and 19 double

                      That’s silly..... see below and add your season goals from GW1 until now

                            As I said, it’s a silly thing to look at. Season goals in your squad is the important metric

                            It takes 2 minutes to add up. I guess from your reaction your total was much lower lol.

                        Would you consider a BB in 19 with 15 nailed starters, even if only 11 of them had doubles? Since Chilwell is fit I can now get to that & get decent Mitchell/Forster replacements without hits.

                            Martinez Grealish Watkins C.Taylor

                            Would take a hit for Watkins > Antonio if Antonio was back by then.

                          Of course. The sgw guys often outperform the dgwers

                          Yes. Going all out on doubles ignores points potential of Son/Kane v SHU. And they are worth having for their fixtures after 19.

                          I'm doing exactly that.

                          Martinez, Dias, KDB, DCL as SGWers

                          2 months, 1 day ago

                          This is why I think a BB could be more effective later in the season. When there's less need to have so much invested in Spurs, it'll be easier to build a strong squad of 15 (perhaps using WC).

                            Yeah, some of the 13-15 DGW teams are going to have some real marginal adds and stuff their side from GW20

                            SGW19 players I still have are KDB Grealish DCL.
                            Would you sell them all? 3ft until then so looks good timing. They are not performing that well anyway...

                            1. joey

                              Depends what you have tied up in them I suppose. I've got a fair bit of value in Grealish and DCL but not much in KDB. Although Grealish has the tougher fixtures on paper I'm probably keeping, he's playing brilliantly every time I see him and has been unfortunate not to get more points. Got 24 against Liverpool and 15 against Southampton so fixtures aren't a massive concern for me and after 19 they're good anyway. DCL is one I'm considering losing, without Rodriguez and the full backs and playing 4 centre backs they don't have the same threat. KDB has been poor for his price, I'm currently keeping but might lose for a dgw mid, either down to someone like Raphina or more sideways to Mane/Rashford.

                              Owning a few Single week players on GW19 is fine as they most likely have decent fixtures. However, i would get rid of KDB not worth his price at the moment. Bring in one of Salah/Kane/Son/Bruno instead and capitalize on potential points

                              Yes but i am on a wc so easier. Depends what you can do with the transfers. If it improves your team for the DGW with good players like Vardy etc then why not

                            Would you sell DCL to get TAA/Robbo for a hit this gameweek coming?

                            Kicking myself if that leak is a fake and TAA does start as was going to do it for this gameweek but held onto DCL’s lowest points this season against Sheff 🙁

                                Especially since even Matip would need to be for a hit

                                1. AC Yew
                                  • 2 Years
                                  2 months, 1 day ago

                                  I would be inclined to take a hit for Robbo/TAA but not so much for Matip. Who would uou be replacing?

                                  1. KAPTAIN KANE

                                    2 months, 1 day ago

                                    It would be:

                                    Mitchell to TAA/Robbo
                                    DCL to Davis

                                    Brewster leaves me 0.1 off

                                    2 months, 1 day ago

                                    Soucek would play in a 3-5-2 instead of DCL essentially

                            How is this for a FT

                              2 months, 1 day ago

                              Would complement a Burnley defender nicely. I love defensive double ups

                              I'm looking at martinez to Pope then pope to fab later. Think those two transfers could bring in a nice haul over anyone who sits on martinez, meslier and mccarthy

                                  So it's Mane or Kane 😀 I'd prefer having Harry

                              Im tempted by Mane. If he get a rest now and then there is DGW. Liverpool score a lot more but no Spurs is frightening though against Leeds

                              2 for sure. Hard deciding between them

                              I think id find a way to have Salah and Kane. I dont have Harry and fear him the most this time of the season

                              Im thinking KDB Watkins to Son Kane and since Im 0.2short Konsa to Ayling (-4)

                            KDB or Kane for next month or so?

                              Tricky I prefer Kane for the next two, but KDB has better fixtures after that and it's going to cost two FT's to switch between the pair.

                              Lol Kane for sure. KDB not worth his price tag

                            Are there any viable fodder mid alternatives to Bissouma who play BGW18 ? Worried that Bissouma could be off to pastures new by then.

                                Nevermind he's a horrible option. Stick with Bissouma unless you want to upgrade to Saka

                                Too expensive for my tastes (although I'm playing FH that week so I'll just be going with the one keeper)

                              Thanks, already have double West Ham defence so Fab isn’t really an option. I’ve got Martínez and Johnstone at moment so may just keep both. Mendy too expensive
