Moving Target

Can Willian Jose score enough goals to become a viable FPL asset?

With Raul Jimenez likely to be out for most of the season, Wolves have moved to sign Brazilian striker Willian Jose (£7.0m) from Real Socieded on loan for the rest of the campaign.

Since losing Jimenez to injury, Wolves have looked a shadow of their former selves, and have slid down the league table at an alarming rate.

But will Jose, 29, be able to take on Jimenez’s role and score enough goals to turn their season around? After his cameo appearance against Chelsea, we have taken an in-depth look at the striker to find out.

Hoping to fill the boots of the Mexican, Jose arrives in the Black Country having established a decent name for himself in Spain.

Jose scored more than 10 goals in each of his last four full seasons in La Liga, for mid-table Sociedad.

After informing Sociedad of his desire to leave, he appeared to be close to a move to Spurs last season, only for the two clubs to fail to agree a fee.

He had scored six goals in all competitions this season before making the loan move, where he is expected to compete with teenager Fabio Silva (£5.2m) for a starting place.

When asked what Jose will bring to the side, boss Nuno Espirito Santo said:

“Talent, quality, experience. He’s a very good player that can be a big help for the team now. First, we have to see how he is, but he’s been competing since the beginning of the season.

“One week ago he played the full game, so in terms of fitness, he’s ready and it’s a matter of integrating him into the philosophy of the team, the ideas, being available is a moment for us to decided when is the appropriate situation.”

“He’s a different player to what we already have. He has experience, he links well, he’s a finisher, a goalscorer, so inside the options we have, I think he can really help the team, especially with the absence of Raul (Jimenez).”

Nuno Espirito Santo

There are no signs of anyone jumping on a Jose bandwagon just yet, but should we be considering him for our teams?

BABY DIEGO

Jose’s playing style has been likened to former Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

With Wolves missing the physical presence of Jimenez up front, it is hoped Jose will add an extra dimension to their play.

Speaking to the Express & Star, Matthew Clark from La Liga Lowdown described Jose as an out-and-out centre forward.

Willian José is a classic forward in the number nine role, happy with the ball in the air, but is effective with the ball at his feet too.

A tall player, he is adept in aerial challenges, and scores plenty of headed goals. Operating mainly in and around the penalty area, he offers a strong focal point for his team as they look to build attacks, linking up with others, and he can finish off chances well too.

His goalscoring record is commendable if not outstanding. At 29 years old, he is perhaps just past his peak, but should still have some strong seasons ahead.

Matthew Clark

He added:

His style reminds me of a prime Diego Costa, but with a bit less aggression. Raúl Jiménez himself would be another similar player, as well as Arkadiusz Milik.

Another Premier League style forward that springs to mind is Olivier Giroud. These players all offer slightly different things, but in broad terms, that is they kind of profile Wolves are getting here.

In Nuno’s system, I believe he will thrive once he settles in.

Matthew Clark

Ironically, Wolves were said to be one of the teams offered Diego Costa in the January transfer window, only to choose Jose instead.

If he can replicate the Spanish international’s Premier League record of 52 Premier League goals, then Wolves will have found themselves a bargain.

SUPPLY LINE

One of the reasons for Wolves’ dip in form can be seen in their attacking stats.

Their previous style of attacking play revolved around pacy wingers putting in crosses for Jimenez.

And judging by the numbers, Wolves are still playing the same way, even without an aerial threat in the box.

Pedro Neto (£5.9m), who has arguable been Wolves’ best player this season, has put in the highest amount of crosses in the league this season.

And although the amount of crosses put in by the rest of Wolves’ midfield are far lower than Neto’s there is still a decent amount of balls being put into the box.

With Nuno recently reverting to a back three formation as well, you’d think that Ruben Semedo (£5.3m) and Rayan Ait Nouri’s (£5.0m) numbers will rise rapidly.

It appears all set for Jose to enter a system that plays perfectly to his strengths, with him having a good amount of crosses to attack every game.

A WORD OF WARNING

With Wolves struggling at both ends of the pitch, you would assume Jose would walk straight into the team, especially after featuring as a substitute as early as Wednesday evening.

This season, Wolves have the sixth worst attack in the league, and have a worse expected goals rating (xG) than relegation contenders Sheffield United and Fulham.

But Jose may not find a clear way to go straight into the team if Nuno’s recent quotes are anything to read into.

Fabio Silva, 18, arrived at Wolves in the summer for around £35million and while big things are not expected of him just yet, you would expect the club hierarchy to want to see some progress.

Speaking of the young forward, Nuno said:

“In Wolves’ present, he’s a big part. I don’t recall one moment where Fabio was not ready to improve, to listen, to help. The way the boy works on the pitch, it’s amazing. We are pleased with that.

“We didn’t expect to have so many youth players at the same time, but we are. Fabio is not for the future, he’s for the present. He’s working really, really hard for the team.”

Nuno Espirito Santo

So it appears Jose could have to share playing time with Silva as the season goes on.

The presence of Fabio Silva and a £7.0m price tag is likely to put off most FPL managers until Jose can nail down a starting place for a good run of games.

    a) Wood > Watkins or
    b) Martial > DCL?

    1. Original Pirate Material
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      B

  2. DagheMunegu
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 8 hours ago

    Do you guys think Werner will start next one against Burnley ?

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      would make sense to give all players a chance in the next few, not like anyone else is firing.

  3. No Professionals
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 8 hours ago

    Johnstone
    Dias Stones Mitchell
    Salah Fernandes Son Gundogan Soucek
    Kane Antonio

    Steer Bamford Dallas Coufal
    2.3m 0ft (using FT for Alzate to Son barring an injury tonight).

    Johnstone has been a disaster, but may as well give him the next 2.

    anything worth a hit?

    A) Bamford to DCL and play over Soucek
    B) Dallas to Digne (play over Mitchell)
    C) Dallas to Targett (play over Mitchell)

    1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      I'm in the same boat with option B, does Digne + -4 outscore mitchell

      1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 hours ago

        And do we know Mitchell will start again?

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 hours ago

        well I'd expect Mitchell to get 2pts. And decent chance Digne gets around 6 (from either CS or assist). But Digne more medium term must outscore him.

        1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 hours ago

          Yes good fixtures for digne coming up too

    2. Pegboy
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      I think B is probably worth a hit.

    3. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 7 hours ago

      A for me, and I would start Dallas

  4. King Kohli
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 hours ago

    What would be the best move here?

    A. Anguissa > Gundogan
    B. Vardy > Kane / Antonio / DCL
    C. Any other suggestions

    Martinez Meslier
    Cancelo Stones Coufal Konsa Taylor*
    Salah Bruno Son Soucek Anguissa
    Vardy* Bamford Adams*

    1 FT 3.1 ITB

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      Get Gundogan

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      I would get Kane for Vardy

  5. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 hours ago

    A Kane and Son show with a Salah blank would be amazing tonight

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      The opposite would be a treat for me!

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 hours ago

        Haha I imagine it is for most!

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      Excuse me, sir! Salah hatty with Kane + Son blanks but a Ndombele goal to wipe out Pool cleanie would do just fine, thank you. 🙂

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 hours ago

        That would really hurt

        1. Stormbringer22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 hours ago

          Another good GW for you so far I see 🙂 Apart from Soucek, but green arrow nonetheless! Are you looking to captain Kane or Son next week?

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 hours ago

            Cheers, yes Soucek did hurt - as it did for most. Annoyingly I’ve now benched 5 of his 7 goals!
            Yes pretty sure it will be Kane, part of me may consider Sterling

    3. Black Knights
      • 8 Years

      Spurs masterclass tonight please.

    Do any of you play Fantasy5? Have you ever come close to winning the jackpot?

      Got 3 one week. Let down by Werner and Torres scored 8 with a goal of 8.5.

      It's tough. There was a guy who won this week. Picked John Fleck for the Utd game. Genius.

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Played it earlier in the season but lost interest. Just seen that someone won it this week and reminded me that this game even existed! Fair play to them. Might give it another go just for the giggles

    2. Gobigorgohome
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      I was close at a time

      4 correct scores

    3. Mr. O'Connell
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 7 hours ago

      Actually got 3 this week. Went Adams from Sot v Ars and Pereira(!) from WBA v City.

      Feel like I did the hard work nailing Maguire, Boly and Tielemans too.

    Bamford & Wilson > Kane & DCL for a hit?

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years

      I would

        Definitely doing Wilson > Kane. Bamford > DCL I'm less sure about...

      Gundo. Had you said Cancelo or Gundo, then I really would have had to think about it haha

    Odegaard's arrival should make ESM irrelevant as an asset, which is irritating as he's my 2nd bench starter. Looking forward to see Odegaard play though, feels like he's been around for a decade with how early he started getting scouted by top clubs.

      1. Flair

        1 month, 8 hours ago

        Will he be starting every week? I doubt it, Odegaard is too good not to play and should make the #10 spot his own sooner rather than later.

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 hours ago

          ESR may start for the next 3 at least I would say.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 hours ago

          Odegaard might play in the double pivot with Partey, impinging on Ceballos's time. Either way, the midfield Arsenal asset you'd want is Saka.

    4. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 8 hours ago

      Odegaard needs to prove himself first, better players than him struggled to impress after coming to PL.

              No, I have Soucek and Antonio, in most cases I feel 3 players from one team is too much

            How do you know he will only start 2?

              Well he played last night. You don’t actually think he’s going to start 4 games in 10 days with Walker on the bench do you ?
              I could be wrong but highly doubtful.. Pep

                I think Dias will start 4 in 10 days with Laporte on the bench. I’d say Cancelo could be rested but there’s no guarantee. I don’t have him cause I already have Stones, Dias, Gündo.

                Also, you aren’t getting Cancelo just for the next 2/3 weeks, it’s maybe a move to have him for the rest of the season.

                He can if he only plays an hour in each one.

            My thinking too. Walker is back in training. Cancelo is bound to miss one. I have opted for Digne.

        • AzzaroMax99

          Already sold Robbo and got Cancelo for free.
          So would you do also Vardy+Anguissa to Kane+Maddison or Grealish(and which one of two) for -8? Mini WC move.

          That would give me:

          McCarthy
          Dias Cancelo Dallas
          Salah Bruno Maddison Gundogan
          Kane Bamford Antonio

          Forster Soucek Cresswell Mitchel

            Vardy could be back. I don't think its worth a -8 imho

            1. AzzaroMax99
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 hours ago

              Not so sure. Will monitor but next two Lei fixtures are great (Leeds, fulham). Also no Tot assets vs Brighton is tricky.

            2. FantasyClub
                1 month, 8 hours ago

                Are you saying Vardy could be back for their next match?

            Zaha a good shout, nice fixtures and scored against WHU.

            Tielmans also on form but Vardy back.

            Need an ESR replacement....any differentials managers are looking at?

              Seen a lot of people planning to get rid of Raphinha, but I would be keeping. He's looking progressively better and more involved. With Bamford a bit out of sorts he could be key in Leeds attack and a nice differential in my opinion.

            Which is highest priority

            A) Bellerin > Stones

            B) Wilson > Watkins

            C) DCL > Laca

            1. Qaiss

              B I think, Newcastle are dreadful.

            When will we know if gw 24 is a double or not? Will have to plan on saving a transfer accordingly. I only have 2 city and 0 Everton/Southampton

            Morning. If gundogan cost 10m I guess everyone would captain this weekend....who to give the armband to....

            A....gundo v Sheffield

            B...kane at Brighton

              I'm minded to do that - it's between him and Kane so let's see how the latter looks tonight.

              Kane will play 90 though. Gundo could get subbed off af 60 if City are cruising.

              1. Flynny
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 7 hours ago

                True

            4. Chris_H
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 8 hours ago

              Would still go Kane. Gundo's career average is around one goal every eight games.

              1. Ajax Hamsterdam
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 8 hours ago

                Will Gundo carry on at that rythm though

                That's like saying Antonio is a inferior option because he has a career average of one goal every four games. Absolutely ridiculous.

                1. Chris_H
                  • 11 Years
                  1 month, 8 hours ago

                  Just saying in all likelihood it's an unsustainable run. Look at DCL at the start of the season. It dries up.

                    • 5 Years

                    Gundog is playing a pivotal role in the best team in the league who are bang in form and scoring for fun....

            Does Coufal's playing for a better team outweigh Dallas's OOP potential? (ignoring DGWs)

            Have to sell one of them for Digne.

            1. The 12th Man
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 8 hours ago

              Same dilemma. Id look at what weeks you want to play Coufal or Dallas. Which one fits better into your defensive set up?

              1. Chris_H
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 8 hours ago

                Probably both fodder with double City! But might rotate one in when they have a tough fixture, will have a check

            2. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 7 hours ago

              If you think of Dallas as a slightly less good and slightly more expensive Lord Lundstrum then probably him. If you think of him as an attacking defender in a team that can't defend then Couf.

              Probably getting ahead of myself here but I'm wondering if a FH in 33 might be more beneficial than 29, particularly if GW29 fixtures are poor. Spurs, city and Southampton all have decent fixtures for the run in so you could load up on those assets prior to free hitting and be well set compared to your rivals who will likely look to minimise their GW33 blank players and struggle to get them back in in numbers

              could do with knowing if City has a double in 24 and who they play ... just need to sit tight I suppose and keep the powder dry on those chips 🙂
