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).

    Is it worth bringing Cancelo in now with a view to BB in 19? If be annoyed if he didn't play that week but of he does then it's a good fixture

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      For who though?

      1. joey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Would be Targett who has served me well but has some tougher games and no double anyway. Everton this week don't really worry me too much as far as attacking threat anyway and Cancelo is probably fun to watch it you have him.

        Rest of the defence is Robbo, Dier, Dallas and Coufal so if he gets rotated there's cover

    2. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'd rather own Dias. Cancelo has served me well but benchings like the BUR game still hurt

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      City fixtures not so good in GW 16 and 17, so would go A nailed defender from other team

    4. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      no, his next two aren't the best anyway

    5. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Why not bring him in?

      He's started 10 of the last 11 games. That doesn't scream rotation risk to me. And, his creativity is off the charts - especially in comparison to Dias

  2. Pep Roulette
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Should I get Wood on WC now and then do Wood to Antonio (if he is fit) in DGW19 for free!?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Getting Wood on a WC sounds messy.

    2. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I'm on both currently, but I think Antonio may make an appearance today, he should be fit for DGW19. If you already know you'd rather have Antonio, get him and sub out if needed by then.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Good point!

    3. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah, apart from Bamford Wood looks like the best buy in this bracker right now

    4. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Cheers everyone

  3. diesel001

    As a Bamford owner, would be bad news if Burnley score first today. They love clinging on to those 1-0 wins.

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Burnley will just hoof it up field when Leeds do the high press. I expect Leeds to pen Burnley back in their own half for much of the game.

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Don’t see it today. Leeds will be too clever going forward imo

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I personally expect Leeds to thrash Burnley.
      Can't really see Burnley playing through the press

  4. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on getting TAA along Robo?

    Worth it?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Maybe. I like James as an alternative and cheaper option though.

    2. AC Yew
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Personally i would stick to one. Depends on team structure and balance though and plan for GW18+19

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Definitely.
      It's how you look at it.
      I feel he's better than any under 8m forward asset

  5. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    I capped Salah. I have 9 captain fails so far. Don't get your hopes up too much..

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      You’ll be ok today.

    2. Z
      • 3 Years

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 25 days ago

      My captain hasn't blanked since GW3, you'll be fine.

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        What's the definition of a blank?
        Did you consider KdB 4 points as not a blank?

    4. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Doesn't really matter what he does

      1. Sanchit
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        It does! A lot.
        EO is around 140%, mine is 200%

    5. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 25 days ago

      You be safe from now big hauls inc.

  6. Fudgy

    Am I the only person captaining Salah away to Newcastle?

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No

    2. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No I will be.

    3. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Thanks for letting us know. I won't be doing Salah(c) now.

      1. Fudgy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                Multiple = 2 or more, so he's corrext

                1. Pumpy Pro

    Martinez ¦ Forster

    Don't want to waste a transfer, help maybe?
    No chips in 18/19 for me.

  8. Paul Psychic Octopus
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Is the consensus that Vardy will be rested for the goal fest against Palace tomorrow?

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Rogers said as much.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        He said there's a chance. He only has iheanashite as back up so I think Vardy will at least feature

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        He did not say that. He said they can afford to rest Vardy and Tielemans if necessary....

    2. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No chance I think. Leicester can't afford to lose points

    3. Davros
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes I reckon, or short minutes

  9. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Which mid to get up to 7.9M? 1FT. 1.2M ITB.

    Adams + KDB -> Kane + ?

    Martinez
    Dallas Coufal Matip
    KDB Bruno Salah Son
    Bamford Adams DCL

    Steer Bednarek Taylor Bissouma

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Wouldnt lose Adams now you got him ready for the DGW.

    2. jomikijiq
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Raphinha is a bargain

    3. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Adams is useless cant score open goal

  10. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    If someone hadn't watched the Villa and City games yesterday, then you might be forgiven for looking at Cancelo (7) and Grealish (3) and thinking it was an acceptable score for those two players combined.

    But in truth, 20 points combined for those two would have been less than was deserved. 10 points combined is an absolute travesty.

    Sterling and Olie Watkins in particular should be feeling disgusted with themselves this morning for their profligacy in those games.

    1. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      That’s life.

    2. Fudgy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Sterling is horrendous. I despise that man.

    3. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Ok

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 25 days ago

      As a Grealish + Watkins owner I want my 20 xG points converted into FPL points ASAP

    5. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Grealish (2)* 🙁

      Agreed though & this is why Grealish in particular is a long term pick. Very involved. If only rotation risk wasn't;t an issue for Cancelo..

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cancelo started 10 of the last 11 games.

        This rotation risk narrative is a myth I'm afraid.

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Because of first injury to walker then covid

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            According to you? Or did Pep say that?

        2. Tcheco
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          He sat out Burnley at home & that's enough to be considered a rotation risk

          1. thegaffer82
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Fair enough, so is Salah & Bruno then as they both sat out one game too

          2. Tcheco
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 25 days ago

            This is relative to Dias for example, who I also own & has started every game since coming in.

            Wouldn't be surprised if he's given the odd game off but as of now he has been more assured of starts

      2. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        He seems to have 2 players stuck to him now though. Hope that stops him a little as i have just sold him on wc.. not sure this will be my best ever move

    6. Baines on Toast...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Hardly a surprise though is it. Grealish created loads last season too.

      And both teams still won so it doesn't mean a thing.

      1. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years

    0.0 in bank.

    Save 2 transfers for GW 19 OR play FH on GW 18

    Kane and Son -> Vardy + DGW player.
    Play BB on GW19 with 15 DGW players.

    Tommy is a little weak I know, but so is my budget.
    Thoughts?

      You won't have 2 transfers in gw19 if you play you're FH in gw18

      1. Drogo

        3 months, 25 days ago

        Yes, I wrote OR.

          Sorry didn't see that. I'm FH in 18 and BB in 19 myself with 12 double game players and 3 single playing players then ill get the team back ( team is Below ) in gw 20

    Transfer Kane or Son in for gw16 have 3.6itb.
    Can either do Grealish to son with money itb or DLC to Kane with 0.0 itb
    What do you reckon guys and girls?
    My team
    Martinez/ MacCarthy/
    Couful/ Dallas/ Balbuena/ Justin/ benerak/
    Salah/ KDB/ Bruno/ ( Grealish) Bissouma/
    ( DLC ) Wilson/ Adams

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Grealish to Son.
      Purely because of captaincy.
      Gw16 Salah is a great option.
      GW17 against Leeds , son is a better option than Kane

  14. Olson

    Really fancy those potshotters like dallas, harrison or raphina to get something today. We know what Burnley are going to do and Leeds are going to batter that goal from outside the area

    How’s this looking for the double??

    Johnstone, mcarthy
    Robertson, coufal, Dallas, kwp, Taylor
    Bruno, Salah, son, raphinha, soucek
    Kane, bamford, wood

    Bench boost will be played

    Any major changes or people I need to get in?

    Thanks

    Seems like most will FH GW 18 and BB GW 19, right?

    1. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Many will, or TC gw18

      yes

    4. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes. Mainly because it is a rare occasion where the BGW and the DGW are completely correlated. If you blank in GW18, then you double in GW19.

      Means that you can max out 15 DGW players by GW17, FH in GW18 and have 15 DGW in GW19. This means:

      GW18 = 11 players
      GW19 = 15 players x 2 = 30 players

      41 players is massive.

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        But I can only make to get 10-11 DGW players by then without A hit

        1. diesel001
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Even then it can be worth the BB. If you have SGW players like Kane, Dias, Cancelo etc.

    Pope to lose his clean sheet and still manage baps and save points today?

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Save points yes.
      Baps depends on who gets the goals for leeds

  19. Burger_and_Chips
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    I've got enough funds to take DCL out and bring Vardy in with my 1FT?

    Will play my free hit on Vardy's blank GW and I'll have him for the DGW.

    Yes or no?

    1. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Are you sure Vardy plays this GW?

    2. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Can you bring kane in instead ?

  20. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Am torn between thinking Leeds will destroy Burnley with that passing and relentless attack or that Burnley will continue their form with Chris Wood smashing a hat-trick off set pieces. Probably the former

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Both

    2. Olson
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Think whatever happens bamford won't be the winner today. He won't get many chances and likely won't get what he takes

  21. n-doggg

    Planning for DGW on WC

    Would you rather:

    A. Robbo/TAA and Rashford
    B. James/Justin and Mane

  22. dansmusen

    For only -4 over next weeks i can get this team for BB DGW
    Pickford - Fabianski
    Robertson - Zouma - Dallas - Justin - Bednarek
    Salah (C) - Son - Fernandes - Soucek - Lookman
    Bamford - Firminio - Adams
    Looks good ??

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      So you're basically using your bench boost on
      Soucek
      Lookman ( would be surprised if Fulham score once in those 2 fixtures)
      Bednarek ( lei and Leeds, won't expect a cs in any of those)

      I'd suggest not to go for these players just because they're playing twice.

      1. dansmusen
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Lookman and Bednarek in my team already so not looking at it that way. My extra BB would be Fabianski/Firminio/Soucke/Adams

  23. JVALDEZ

    5. Pep Roulette

      Chances of Struijk nailing down that spot? When is Cooper returning?

    Just watched highlights of villa game. Watkins should have have 22 points. Gutted only got 11.

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      If you captained him he got 22

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      He is a poor player. If that was even a marginally better player like Welbeck they would have hauled big time.

    3. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Yes, watched it last night on MOTD in disbelief and then to top it off no bonus for his three assists!

    4. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years

      He is utter garbage that's why

  26. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Any chance of Leeds rotation or is he going to play this side 90% of times?

    1. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      he does not rotate

  27. FootieFan77
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    With so much uncertainty still for GW26 and 29 it seems sensible to Free Hit in GW18 and Bench Boost in GW19.

    This year a Man City Defender seems more beneficial than a Man City attacker.

  28. FPLMACKEM
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 25 days ago

    McCarthy
    Coufal, Robertson, Cancelo, Targett
    Salah (C), KDB, Bruno, Grealish
    Adams, Bamford

    Forster, Lookman, Brewster, Lewis

    2.3 itb 2ft

    The obvious move is Grealish to son.

    Any other suggestions? Or just Grealish to son?

    1. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      We have the exact same team, except you have Robbo and I have DCL, I also have 2.3 itb and been thinking about the same transfer... Are we the same person lol?

      1. FPLMACKEM
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Lol how odd.

        Since we have a lot in common what's your plans with Grealish and KDB? You looking to get son/ Kane in?

  29. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thinking of going without chips in 18/19

    Martinez ¦ Forster
    Coufal Taylor Holding
    Salah KdB Bruno Grealish* Soucek
    Vardy* Watkins
    ¦ Wilson Ayling Lascelles

    2 FT, 0.7 ITB

    Vardy, Grealish -> Kane, Saka
    Makes sense?

    1. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
