GAMEWEEK 19 FIXTURES

The five matches in this round of fixtures are:

  • Liverpool v Manchester United
  • Manchester City v Crystal Palace
  • Arsenal v Newcastle United
  • West Ham United v West Bromwich Albion
  • Leicester City v Chelsea

The deadline is at 16:30 GMT on Sunday 17 January.

SCOUT’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

Bruno Fernandes (6.5) only needs to find the net against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, and avoid his fifth yellow card of the season, to eclipse his predicted points total for Gameweek 19.

And that might be easier than usual considering the Reds have conceded five penalties this season, the joint-third-highest in the Premier League thus far.

Vicente Guaita (2.5) will have his hands full when Crystal Palace travel to Manchester City on Sunday evening which could help him score the three or more points needed here.

He has eclipsed two points in six of the last eight FPL Gameweeks, earning an additional for saves on four occasions. Facing Manchester City’s attackers will certainly help him try to repeat that feat at the Etihad Stadium.

Arsenal may have been disappointed with their 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace on Thursday night but they did keep a third successive clean sheet.

I fancy the Gunners to get another one against Newcastle and if David Luiz (5.5) starts, which he did against the Eagles, then as long as he stays booking free, he would hit the six-point threshold.

Vladimir Coufal (6.5) is my pick from the West Ham defence as they prepare to host a West Bromwich Albion side that has failed to find the net in three of their last four Premier League matches.

They are also the worst side in the division over that period for conceding chances down their left-hand side of the pitch, which Coufal will face as West Ham’s marauding right-back.

Jamie Vardy (6.5) faces a Chelsea defence with only one clean sheet in the last seven Premier League matches, their last on the road coming in a Gameweek 9 win at Newcastle.

Meanwhile, the Leicester striker has accrued two goals and five assists in his last five at the King Power Stadium.

LOGAN’S FPL’S GAMEWEEK 19 PICKS

While James Milner’s (2.5) minutes have been limited of late, as Liverpool’s captain he is could be back in the starting XI for a crucial top of the table clash with Manchester United. If the Reds manage to shut-out the Red Devils with Milner on the pitch, or if he scores a penalty, he will eclipse his points projection.

Cheikhou Kouyaté (2.5) is a riskier pick although as a midfielder he won’t be punished by Manchester City’s goal-scoring exploits. If he can use his threat at set pieces and/or keep an unlikely clean sheet then Kouyaté will be a winner.

Alexandre Lacazette (6.5) may have failed to find the net against Crystal Palace but he still has four goals in as many Premier League matches.

Michail Antonio (6.5), and Jamie Vardy (6.5) are both potential goal-scorers and/or assisters who should each play past 60 minutes in their respective games.

            Tough. I'd probably take a hit and then BB.

            If you just want to bench then Bamford and Konsa?

          The Review: GW 18

          Hi everyone, welcome to the latest edition of “The Review” where I look at Bench Boost, Triple Captaincy and the upcoming double GW19 in detail:

          (Data taken from FFScout with consent)

          Before I begin, I’d also like to mention that I post about FPL on my Instagram too, so if you have an Instagram account, follow up here!

          http://instagram.com/bigmanbakar

          Q: Who is the best captaincy option this week and why?

          I jump straight away to what is the toughest question of the week. I first try and work out which one of the Liverpool midfielders to own:

          Salah (20/21) vs Mane (20/21)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 33.73 vs 34.15

          Mins per big chance: 96.4 vs 111

          Mins per big chance created: 224.8 vs 333

          Mins per chance created: 49.9 vs 57.9

          Even though Mane’s numbers in comparison to his numbers in the yesteryears have improved, he is still behind Salah as a FPL asset, although not by much. Now that we have established that Salah is the Liverpool option to have, I run a comparison to assess the level at which he's playing at:

          Salah (Home 20/21) vs Salah (Home 19/20)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 27.3 vs 26.3

          Mins per big chance: 104.8 vs 83.1

          Mins per big chance created: 314.5

          Mins per chance created: 52.4

          As you can see, what's significant to note is that Salah's minute per big chance has gone down quite significantly at home as compared to his home numbers last year. This comes across as no surprise given that at the same stage last season, Salah has registered nine big chances at home but this season that stat has witnessed a 33% drop which has seen Salah register just six big chances at home. Surprisingly, Salah has a better minutes per big chance ratio away from home this season than at home this season (as shown below) despite the fact that he has been shooting with greater frequency from inside the box at home:

          Salah (Home 20/21) vs Salah (Away 20/21)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 27.3 vs 42.4

          Mins per big chance: 104.8 vs 90

          Mins per big chance created: 314.5 vs 180

          Mins per chance created: 52.4 vs 48

          I now run a comparison to assess Salah’s recent numbers side by side with De Bruyne:

          Salah (Last 6 Home appearances) vs De Bruyne (Last 6 Home appearances)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 36 vs 41.5

          Mins per big chance: 134.75 vs 90

          Mins per chance created: 67.4 vs 31.76

          Mins per big chance created: 269.5 vs 90

          Mins per baseline bps: 12 v 7.5

          Liverpool’s xG = 11 vs Man City’s xG= 13.2

          Liverpool’s mins per big chance = 31.6 vs Man City’s mins per big chance = 21.7

          The numbers are telling, extremely telling and highlight De Bruyne’s form at home of late and Salah’s lack of. As expected, De Bruyne fares far better for chance creation and hence bonus potential but what is important to note is that De Bruyne is doing better in terms of recording big chances too. Man City are creating big chances at a faster clip than Liverpool, hence have the better xG, and with a better set of fixtures on paper (AVL,CPL) than Liverpool (MUN,BUR), De Bruyne is likely to be the better option this week.

          Q: Should the Triple Captain chip be used this GW?

          A few weeks ago, I was bullish about using my triple captaincy on Salah this GW. Due to the concerns that I have raised above on Salah’s form this season, I don’t think I’m as confident as I was earlier despite the fact that Salah does offer the security of successive starts having had twelve days of rest. If I knew that De Bruyne would play both the games, I’d triple captain him because I feel that he’s more explosive than Salah but I guess I’m not as reasonably assured regarding his security of back-to-back starts (even though there is nothing suggesting to the contrary other than him appearing to be tired at the end of the game) – I guess one never can be with Pep Guardiola. For now, I am going chip-less but De Bruyne triple captain is flirting with me.

          Q: Should the Bench Boost chip be used this GW?

          This is a very common question this week and one which I’ll try and generalize even though it’s hard to answer without seeing a team on paper. If in the prior weeks you have planned to Bench Boost, then I don’t think the news of the Leeds v Southampton fixture should put you off. I say that due to a number of reasons. Firstly, you may or may not get the opportunity to set your team as perfectly as you might plan to later, so it might be better to play what is in front of you even if it’s a 50/50 decision.

          Secondly, I think the likes of Raphinha, Bamford, Son, Dier, Holding, Smith Rowe and Saka are all decent, playable options on a bench boost this week so if you own them don’t be hesitant to bench boost even if they don’t have a double GW. If you own McCarthy but don’t own Martinez, that’s a hit I’d happily take this week because I think that is likely to pay off given the fact that Villa have more doubles to follow and Martinez has the better fixtures. I’d also sell Che Adams if you own, his numbers with Danny Ings are far better and now that he has tested positive for COVID, I think Adams will suffer too. I’d sell for a double GWer.

          On the flip side of the coin, if your team isn’t set for the bench boost (for example, if you own the likes of a non-playable keeper or Burke/Bissouma/Brewster) I wouldn’t forcibly take hits to play the bench boost. I’d save it up for later when the opportunity might present itself.

          Q: Is it viable to use the Free Hit this GW?

          As always, this is a team specific question. Having said that, I think this is one of those rare GWs where it is very hard to have a bad team on paper. I say that because almost all teams with highly owned assets – Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Ham and Leicester have double GWs while even those teams with a single GW such as the likes of Spurs and Leeds have great fixtures on paper. Single GW assets from Spurs and Leeds could easily outscore some of the double GWers you buy on Free Hit so I don’t think the upside of playing the Free Hit is as big. Ideally, I’d save it till GW29.

          Q: Heung Min Son and Harry Kane – keep or sell? Which one is worth keeping if at all?

          I think it is very important to own the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne this week. I’m assuming it would be impossible for almost all FPL managers to own all three together with Son and Kane in the same team so I would suggest selling at least one of Son or Kane, if not both, to make room for those three in your FPL squads. Spurs have a mixed bag of fixtures long term (shu LIV bha CHE) so I don’t think the risk of selling either is too high given the double GWs flying around.

          If I had the luxury to choose whichever one to sell this week, I’d sell Kane over Son. I say that because Son is cheaper, presents more value long term and has the better numbers away from home which is relevant as Spurs have an away fixture this week:

          Son (Away) vs Kane (Away)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 53.23 vs 42

          Mins per big chance: 76.8 vs 142.8

          Mins per chance created: 53.2 vs 47.6

          Mins per big chance created: 230.7 vs 142.8

          I wrote last week as to why Kane was a better option than Son due to his home numbers, and going by the same logic I think Son is likelier than Kane to notch against Sheffield United this week given that he carries the main goal threat away from home. Sheffield United are in the bottom three for big chances conceded and xG conceded at home, so Son would be a very reluctant sell for me.

          Q: What to do with Aston Villa’s assets?

          This is a fairly simple one. I don’t think I’d be buying or selling. Yes, there is a concern that after the COVID outbreak, Villa’s assets might be rusty this week but we don’t have a model to reasonably estimate the extent of such impact. What I like about Villa is that the more favorable fixture vs Newcastle in the double comes after the Man City game, so one can hope that any rustiness would be out of the way by then already.

          Villa offer cheap assets so the risk even if they don’t score big isn’t as huge. Let’s not forget that Villa stand second for chances created and big chances conceded over the season so there is potential at both ends of the pitch. Their fixtures after the double GW are favorable too (bur sou WHM), so I’d suggest keeping. I don’t think I’d be buying a Villa asset right now though, partly due to the potential impact of the COVID outbreak and the Man City fixture.

          Q: Who are the best Dominic Calvert Lewin replacements?

          I mentioned last GW how DCL’s numbers had dropped of late:

          DCL (GW 1-11) v DCL (GW 12-17)

          Mins per shot in the box 31.29 v 54.63

          Mins per big chance 69.28 v 145.67

          The news of an Everton blank being confirmed this GW is perhaps what is the final nail in the coffin for most FPL managers, who are unwilling to take the risk of having a dormant asset losing in value at their disposal. I look at three differential options with double GWs as his replacements:

          In the premium category, there are Timo Werner and Jamie Vardy. Jamie Vardy is the old dog who’s been there and done that. He currently sits top for big chances of all players this season. What I like about Vardy is not only that he’s a safe, dependable option but he also has good fixtures (eve LEE) after the double GW. It’s worth pointing out that Vardy scored 14 points against Leeds the last time he faced them this season. Werner is more of a punt, but he scored in the cup game at the weekend, and I like the fact that he is likely to play as the central striker given that the Chelsea front four are all fit. Werner is averaging 103 minutes per big chance at home this season, compared to 161 minutes per big chance away so he may be a better option for the fixtures to follow (WOL,BUR) than for the double itself.

          Michail Antonio is the option to go for if you’re looking for someone cheaper. His numbers have always been good, the fixtures are there (BUR+WBA cpl LIV avl ful) but what worries me is his match fitness. I liked the fact that he played 90 minutes in the cup though, which suggests that he should be good to go again for this GW. With Noble out of favor, he is likely to be on penalties too. I’ve discussed his impact on the West Ham team in a later section down below.

          Q: Is switching to a back four a good idea given the emergence of a reliable Man City defence?

          I think this could be a great strategy given the options at our disposal. Doubling up on the Man City defence is the gift which keeps on giving – Stones and Dias have now started nine games together in which Man City have won eight and drawn one, having conceded just one goal in nine games which is incredible in itself. Meanwhile, João Cancelo has created 20 chances (including 4 big chances!) in his previous 10 Premier League appearances for Man City, which is the second highest number of chances created of all Man City players after Kevin De Bruyne, yet has failed to register a single assist. I keep saying this every week but he has haul imminent written all over him.

          Liverpool have two home double GW fixtures coming up and their numbers look better home than away:

          Liverpool (Home 20/21) vs Liverpool (Away 20/21)

          Shots conceded inside the box per game: 5.13 vs 5.44

          Big chances conceded per game: 1.75 vs 2.33

          Trent Alexander-Arnold (20/21) vs Andy Robertson (20/21):

          Mins per big chance: 1219 vs 765

          Mins per big chance created: 406.3 vs 218.6

          Mins per chance created: 48.8 vs 47.8

          Mins per touch in the final third: 2.6 vs 2.4

          Mins per baseline bps: 6.2 vs 5.6

          Robertson would be my defender of choice here. At this point I’d also like to talk about the forgotten man, Ben Chilwell. It’s worth remembering that Chelsea have the second best expected goals conceded after Man City this season despite their recent loss of form. With James’ fitness a concern, Chilwell remains the defender of choice for FPL managers having the best minutes per touch in the final third ratio of all defenders in the league this season after the Liverpool full backs. With favorable fixtures coming up (ful+lei WOL BUR), I’m confident that he’ll do well.

          Q: In this section, I talk about the West Ham attack.

          First, I look at the influence Antonio has when he plays:

          West Ham (GW 1-5 with Antonio) vs West Ham (GW 6-17 without Antonio)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 8.65 vs 11.9

          Mins per big chance: 45 vs 54

          The numbers tell their own story. Needless to say, West Ham are a far different side with Antonio in it than without so I wouldn’t read too much into their recent attacking numbers. When Antonio was fit from GW 1-5, West Ham were ranked second and fifth for shots inside the box and big chances respectively, which was despite the fact that they started the season with difficult fixtures. However, since Antonio’s injury, they are now ranked tenth for both shots inside the box and big chances which highlights the impact of his loss.

          Now, I assess Souček’s recent numbers:

          Souček (GW 1-13) vs Souček (GW 14-17)

          Mins per shot inside the box: 65 vs 45

          Mins per big chance: 234 vs 180

          Mins per penalty area touch: 35 vs 18

          Incredibly, ∼38% of Souček’s penalty area touches in the opposition’s box all season have all come in the past four GWs. Moyes has definitely had a word with him giving him more license to attack. In his price bracket, I think he is easily the best midfielder to own for the double GW. At this point, I’d also like to point out @allaboutfpl’s (on Twitter) stat who pointed out that Souček is top among midfielders for headed attempts this season, while West Brom have conceded the second highest number of headed attempts this season so the stars may be aligned in his favor.

          Q: In this section, I talk about the West Ham defence.

          Given the fact that West Ham have the standout double GW fixtures of all mid-priced defences, I analyze their full backs:

          Cresswell (20/21) vs Coufal (20/21)

          Mins per big chance: 1530 vs 1165

          Mins per chance created: 61.2 vs 61.3

          Mins per big chance created: 510 vs 582.5

          Mins per touch in the final third: 6.02 vs 5.24

          Mins per baseline bonus: 6.5 vs 6.9

          By looking at the underlying stats over the season, both defenders have been providing approximately the same level of goal threat and chance creation. Cresswell has created the highest number of chances of all West Ham players this season so he tends to do slightly better overall for bonus. I further dissect these numbers from GW12 onwards to assess the impact of Masuaku’s injury on Cresswell’s numbers:

          Cresswell (GW 12-17) vs Coufal (GW 12-17)

          Mins per big chance: 540 vs 450

          Mins per chance created: 108 vs 50

          Mins per big chance created: 540 vs 450

          Mins per touch in the final third: 4.7 v 4.6

          Mins per baseline bonus: 8.6 v 5.2

          What is telling is that despite the fact that Cresswell has been playing as a natural left back of late rather than as a third centre back in a back three, his numbers pale in comparison to Coufal over the recent weeks who out-stats him for both chance creation and bonus potential by a distance. Coufal is cheaper as well and with good fixtures to follow even after the double GW (BUR + WBA cry LIV avl ful), he would be my pick.

          This brings me to the end of the article. Pardon any glaring omissions/mistakes as I have been up all night writing this due to the quick turnaround.

              Regarding Villa players =This is a fairly simple one. I don’t think I’d be buying or selling.

              Great stuff, but I think we're at the point when KDB's conversion rate needs to be addressed when discussing his XG numbers.

              So based on the Salah/KDB comparison...KDB should have outscored Salah by a good few points, which is not the case

              Nice summary, it's much appreciated. However imo these home vs away comparissons don't hold much water, because the sample size for each data set is small. And (perhaps to a lesser extent) there is no consideration of opponents previously played.

              In a small dataset is likely you will be able to find a pattern to fit a narrative. In reality the pattern is a product of random noise.

              Good examples of this are the Harry Kane August curse, Firmino doesn't score at Anfield, or even the Mane away / Salah home theory. Look at enough data over small samples and your brain finds a pattern (apophenia). It doesn't necessarily mean anything.

              Are the Son and Kane stats reversed?

              Seems like it looks better for Kane away instead of Son away

            Soucek Son* Salah Fernandes Raphinha*

            Final decison for me, any advice appreciated.

            Stones or Cancelo (have Dias). Edging towards Stones to save money.

            Cancelo has one assist all season and people seem to be obsessed with him. What am I missing?

              Plays high up and seems to often on the verge of haul.

                He looks dangerous and people have been saying a big haul is coming which it could very well happen but I went Stones so I could fund KDB. Was an easy decision for me.

                How Cancelo has managed to avoid clocking up more assists is one of life's mysteries.

              chances of antonio starting both?
              laca plays home to NEW, is it worth -4 to take a gamle on antonio?

                High, but he might get 60 and 80 in each or something like that.

                I’m selling bamford -4 for him.

                KDBs due a mega haul

                The amount of 1:1’s he’s missed + others botching his assists...

                Might be this week, might be next, might not be until later in the year...

                But the sheer amount of involvement he’s having on a game to game basis is bonkers

                  Yes it would but the moves leave me 0.2 short!

                I would consider doing Taylor, Bowen & Kane OUT Stones, KdB & Antonio IN

                  Not a bad shout just wary of removing Kane!

                    3 months, 1 day ago

                    The fear of going without KdB is too much for me, more so than ditching Kane

              Is this worth it for a -12?

              Lowton, Dallas, Son & Kane OUT
              Cancelo, Dias, KdB & Antonio IN

                Probably

                Yeah transfers all look good

                do it 🙂 but the Spurs boys could punish you

                Wouldn't usually advocate a -12 but this actually looks decent

              im 0.1m short of son > kdb. any hit worth it for him? and should I BB??

              Fabianski (Johnstone)
              Cancelo Dias Coufal TAA James
              Son Salah Bruno Soucek (Raphinha)
              Bamford (Rodrigo Adams)

                Tricky one to find savings there. Maybe Adams or Rodrigo to Decordova-Reid (has a double). Would BB.

              Hey guys,

              I've seen a bit of chat about WC25 and BB26. Does anyone have a feel for how many teams will have 3 fixtures across those 2 GWs? I have BB, FH, TC and WC all still left, but on the fence on BB vs TC this week. Any thoughts appreciated.

              Kind regards,

              Rowdog.

              Do we think Salah, Bruno and KDB could all have EO above 100% this GW? Would be fun wanting 2 of your most premium players to blank in a DGW!

                • 9 Years
                3 months, 1 day ago

                Think Salah and KDB will Bruno won't

                KDB will be way down on 100% where it matters. High ownership this GW just gone due to FHs

                1. Sun Jihai
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 1 day ago

                  Good point, forgot about the FH impact. The ownership of the Kane + Son combo was annoying this GW.

              BB this to get it out of the way? (Don't have my FH left either)
              Forster Bamford Holding Rodrigo

                Meh if you still have wildcard I'd save later on over those players.

              guys, would appreciate some help:

              Trent, Raphihna, Kane > Stones, KDB, Antonio -8

              This seems like a no-brainer but do I have double gameweek blinkers on?

                Can easily backfire, I'd find another way

                You do but could pay off big time

                Yeah looks good,it’s just the whole getting rid of Kane thing really. I’ve toyed with the idea to try raise funds to complete my bench boost. Don’t know if I can bring myself to do it.

                  Cheers lads. I would be captaining KDB and want him and Stones for their run after so I think it's just about worth the risk.

              2 questions:

              1) Did Moyes say anything about Antonio?

              2) Did Pep mention anything of tiredness and KDB?

                No

                No

                3 months, 1 day ago

                1. just said everyone is fit other than Balbuena

                2. Don't think he mentioned him. Was more about players out and how Sterling still a big player for the team

                Nice ok, all clear then.

              Possibilities of more postponement after the deadline make bb less attractive?

                Yes but that will be a problem as long as the pandemic is still going on

              Kane / Zaha ---> Antonio / Salah -4

              is worthy ?
