Saïss back in the goals as Wolves’ defensive problems persist at Brighton

Brighton 3-3 Wolves

  • Goals: Aaron Connolly (£5.2m), Neal Maupay (£6.1m), Lewis Dunk (£4.8m) | Romain Saïss (£5.1m), Rúben Neves (£5.2m)
  • Own goals: Dan Burn (£4.3m)
  • Assists: Leandro Trossard x2 (£5.7m) | Nélson Semedo (£5.4m), Adama Traoré (£6.1m)
  • Bonus points: Trossard x3, Neves x2, Dunk x1, Maupay x1

DO AS THE ROMAINS DO

Romain Saïss‘ (£5.1m) Fantasy Premier League comeback got even better in Gameweek 17 as he scored his third goal of the season in a 3-3 draw with Brighton.

Willy Boly‘s (£5.4m) most recent injury has helped the Moroccan international reclaim his place in the Wolves side regardless of whether Nuno Espirito Santo deploys a back-three or back-four.

Saïss has now started each of the last six Premier League matches, adding goals in two of the last three.

However, prospective suitors for Saïss might be put off by Wolves’ recent defensive problems. 

They have now conceded in each of their last 10 Premier League games, their longest run without a clean sheet in the top flight under Nuno. That run comes after they secured four shut-outs in the opening seven Gameweeks this season.

It is clear that chopping and changing between a back-three and back-four has not helped matters, Max Kilman (£4.1m) owners suffering especially from the lack of consistency with just two 90-minute outings since Gameweek 11.

But, on top of missing Boly, Wolves have also felt the adverse effects of losing the screening abilities of Leander Dendoncker (£4.7m) in central midfield, the Belgian absent from the last four matches with a knock.

Against Brighton, their four-man back-line was reliant on Rúben Neves (£5.2m) and João Moutinho (£5.2m) protecting the defensive third through possession rather than their off-the-ball offerings – something hard to do against a Brighton side with such a heavy focus on moving the ball about themselves.

But Wolves now have 10 days between Premier League matches, which could allow Dendoncker and Boly some time to get back to full fitness and boost their clean sheet potential ready for appealing matches against Everton (home) and West Bromwich Albion (home).

SEA-YA-GULLS

By contrast, the fixtures for Brighton are quite menacing indeed.

They are one of only 12 teams with a Blank Gameweek 18 fixture but considering it is at Manchester City, interest in their assets is likely to be low indeed – especially with Spurs (home) and Liverpool (away) coming up in Gameweeks 21 and 22. 

 Nevertheless, Leandro Trossard (£5.7m) was a standout player for the Seagulls in their 3-3 draw with Wolves, producing two assists and securing maximum bonus for an 11-point haul.

The Belgian is by no means in a purple patch in terms of converting his displays into points, those two assists his first attacking returns since Gameweek 4.

However, the underlying numbers have been mildly encouraging for him over the last four matches, his total of 11 key passes the eighth-best among all midfielders over their last four matches.

Meanwhile, Neal Maupay (£6.1m) is in a strong position to reclaim the centre-forward berth at Brighton.

Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) missed out on a starting place for the second match in a row due to a knee injury and Aaron Connolly (£5.2m) came at half-time with a knock.

“We had a game on Sunday and one on Tuesday, one day in between the matches. Neal’s had a big workload.” – Graham Potter

“We’re missing Danny Welbeck who still hasn’t recovered from a setback against West Ham.” – Graham Potter

That allowed Maupay to move forward from his central attacking-midfield role back into the striker position against Wolves, enabling him to win a quickfire penalty at the start of the second period.

Also with two goals in his last three for Brighton is Lewis Dunk (£4.8m). However, his colleague Adam Webster (£4.4m) can consider himself unfortunate not to have also found the net or registered a Fantasy assist.

He struck the crossbar with a second-half header before substitute Andi Zeqiri (£5.0m) skied the rebound.

Webster has actually registered more shots in the box than Dunk over the last four matches and is arguably more benchable for the upcoming tough fixtures Brighton face.

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-2-1): R Sanchez; Burn (Lallana 69′), Dunk, Webster; March, Bissouma (Pröpper 46′), White, Veltman; Maupay, Trossard; Connolly (Zeqiri 46′).

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (4-2-3-1): Patrício; Aït-Nouri, Saïss, Coady, Semedo; Neves, Moutinho; Neto, Vitinha (Kilman 64′), A Traoré; F Silva (Otasowie 87′).

      How nailed is Cancelo?

      Need a City defence cover for next gw. Cancelo or Dias?

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        dias

      2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        As nailed as it gets in a Pep team

        1. Party time

          Hehehe...

      3. The Road to Turfdom
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Best option of the defenders IMO

        1. Party time
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Yeah but I just think he is not as nailed as Dias. I’ve got to pick one & it’s quite tricky because Cancelo has better attacking stats

          1. The Road to Turfdom
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I don't think the differential rotation risk is huge

            1. Party time
              • 2 Years

              Yeah, this is true.

              Thanks

        Dias has been benched less but Cancelo will offer more pts.

              May not even FH. I am getting braver by the day about going ahead with 7 players.

            Nope, I'm playing it in 18. Used my WC in 16 to build a BB DGW team, and now I have 5 players in 18. Absolutely have to FH.

              Sorry, I worded my question badly. It was more around when will you activate the FH. If you activate it now and then we have a circuit breaker you will lose the chip

              1. BenDavies
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Ah I see, yes I'm waiting until the absolute latest before GW18 to activate it, just to make sure there is no new national lockdown.

              If there are no games in GW18 as we have a circuit breaker for Covid you’ve just completely wasted your FH chip to save 0.3m in team value

              1. BenDavies
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 25 days ago

                Thats why I'm waiting, but I plan to use it if theres no circuit breaker

          3. TheDragon
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I’m waiting

            FPL burn out - need a few days away from it. Then clear head to at least be sure FH is the way to go and to better assess the Covid situation

          To all of us Kane Son Bruno cappers:
          I know its logical that Salah isnt very noisy tomorrow even If we do have h in our teams.
          Are there any mathematicians who might say just how many pts is okay for us without making our ranking worse. Maybe one assist for the whole game aint that bad? 😀

            0

              Okay 2pts for Salah and maybe TAA wont make my ranking worse? 😀

                This. I don't know why it's so hard for people to understand.

                Minus is better. His EO is 110% in top 100k.

                  He asked how many without making our rank worse 😉

              You’d be better off if he misses a pen and gets a yellow card

              If EO% is over 100 you want them to get sent off...

                I was going to type this but then you wouldn’t really as they would miss games for you in the future. Hence the missed pen and yellow comment 🙂

                  True I suppose but in terms of immediate rank gain, you do...

                    Depends when the red card is. Missed pen and yellow is also -3 🙂 ...

                    Missed pen, yellow and hooked at half time

              I don't really care if he hauls or not. If he does it will hurt my rank a bit but it's still points on the board. Might be best to have the mentality that points are better than rank until the end of the season. As long as you're averaging over 60 points a week you're bound to have a great rank.

              1. Bounce
                  1 month, 25 days ago

                  That's just simply not how it works. Points are only meaningful when compared to everyone else. In a low scoring week someone could get 35 points and have a gameweek rank in the top 100k.

                    I don't see the point in owning loads of premiums when you can only captain one of you don't want them to score points.

                    1. Bounce
                        1 month, 25 days ago

                        That's how the games will always be unless the remove captains from the game.

                      How come any season 2,300 points gets you in the top 50k?

                    CS for pool is more important than him getting some points.

                    He can score from Robbo assists.

                      I need 5 to avoid an early EFL Cup exit from Salah(c). If I get that assist, I’ll happily give the other captainers their 5/7/8 points over me.

                      I’m currently working on a formula to help with the free hit team this gameweek. My current formula is:

                      Points per match x Difficulty (found from FDR) / Price

                      Any improvements to it? I’ve found it’s realitavely similar to the side I’ll line up with.

                        Yeah i have an improvement. Pick the best players with the best fixtures. It’s as simple as that. You’re over complicating a simple game. That’s ridiculous

                        4.4m ---> 3.4m OR, with Salah to go. And missed first 3 GWs. This season seems salvagable now.

                            Very nice idea as I'll be able to afford Salah back with that 0.2 ITB.

                            My selling price is 12.4 and he's currently priced at 12.6.

                            Hi.....have folk activated free hit already?

                            Or given covid, waiting till the last minute

                            I don't have a lot of lee way financially and will be priced out if I wait...

                            Some popular picks like rashford tierney and saka rising imminently

                            Thanks

                              I’m probably waiting. Frustrating but the downside of a season break is massive

                                Cup games and covid, it's better to wait. You can pick a decent FH team with £95.0m so price rises aren't important for 1 gameweek.

                                I did it after the kdb goal. I would definitely get priced out as well so just pulled the trigger

                                I activated out of impatience but I'm worried about the lockdown. I think I might get punished for it. Let's see...

                              • ElChapo
                                • 2 Years
                                1 month, 25 days ago

                                on a FH you should be picking 1 minimum price keeper and bench player as it's a one week punt anyway - price rises shouldn't impact anything.

                                Too much risk so waiting- not as if price rises mean much and anyway plenty choice for players on FH.

                                I’ve done it. Made .4 already technically. If they rise again I’m quids in for this week.. also got kdb after he dropped .1 so that’ll do me for now ... lol

                                  Yeah on reflection I may wait a bit.

                                  Even if I'm priced out, I can always downgrade Cancelo to stones for example and keep rest of squad ....cheers

                                    Agreed. It was risky but hey ho. It’s nice tweaking n trying to make some cash I guess

                                    ah, not on twitter which is where most of these things seem to break.

                                    Luckily I've got forster as my backup - some save points hopefully.

                              Hi
                              Can I get some feedback on this FH team below.

                              DDG
                              Cancelo, Tierney, Fernandez
                              Son, KDB, Sterling, Saka, Fernandes
                              Kane, Wilson

                              Martin, Mitchell, Brewster, Kilman
                              Thanks

                              1. Saka_me_sideways

                                  Decent, think I’d rather swap DDG + Fernandez to Darlow + Slabhead personally... but rest looks really good.

                                    Thanks for ur feedback. I'll definitely look into that as an option

                                    1. Saka_me_sideways

                                        Just think darlow will give you better chance of save points and Maguire is more of a goal threat.... but still covering the same teams. Absolutely nothing wrong with what you’ve got though.

                                          Unfortunately I can't afford that and I'm short by 0.3

                                          Didn't realise Darlow was 5 mil!

                                    Awful GW for me, so I’ve gone and hit the FH button to make me feel better (team tinkering is definitely the best part of the game lol).

                                    Darlow

                                    Teirney / AWB / Canelo

                                    KDB / Bruno / Son / Neto

                                    Kane / Wilson / Laca

                                    Bench: Saka / Kilman / 3.8

                                    How’s that looking?
                                    Worth having a few on the bench incase right? Or is it better to put the money into the 11?

                                    1. Fresh_From_Desh

                                      1 month, 25 days ago

                                      Looks decent.

                                      I'm torn if is should include laca or not. Not including him has allowed me to get sterling

                                      1. Saka_me_sideways
                                          1 month, 25 days ago

                                          Yeah the double up with KDB and sterling is tempting.
                                          Not sure if I’d rather spread the risk with laca though... surely he’s nailed with the form he’s in?

                                          1. Fresh_From_Desh
                                            • 3 Years
                                            1 month, 25 days ago

                                            Scored a brace.

                                            Arsenal unbeaten in 3.

                                            Arteta would surely want to keep a settled team.

                                            I think you don't need to worry

                                      How would you prioritise your big hitters for the Dgw?

                                      I want Vardy, KDB, Salah, Bruno. But I can’t get them all in.

                                        Low team value or money in defence? I'm currently going with Son over KDB and the 3 you have mentioned.

                                      There's no way more games are added to 18 anymore, right?

                                        Impossible to say. It’s all willy nilly this season.

                                      2. Camino Aleatorio

                                        1 month, 25 days ago

                                        Maybe Liverpool vs Southampton moved, last possibility

                                      It’s “when” not “if”.

                                        A step to early for Frank at Chelsea

                                      People activating their free hits sooner rather than later to catch rises?

                                        Risk is far worse than reward. A circuit breaker is definitely possible and would void the FH. Just wait.

                                      2. Bobby Digital

                                        I'd wait, mid gw cup games and postponements

                                        1. Camzy

                                          1 month, 25 days ago

                                          The only thing that ruins it is if there's a circuit breaker. Any postponements or injuries you could react to.

                                          It's only if there are no games in GW18 that there's a problem.

                                        I will be waiting until the day before matches

                                        Normally I would activate early but as pointed out by others think it’s wise to hold off.
