The FPL Round-up: Bruno’s latest blank, Pereira’s form and Mitchell’s benching

Southampton 0-1 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Ross Barkley (£5.9m)
  • Assists: Jack Grealish (£7.7m)
  • Bonus: Emiliano Martinez (£5.1m) x3 Matty Cash (£5.0m) x3 Tyrone Mings (£5.4m) x1

Aston Villa made it 10 clean sheets for the season with a hard-fought win at Southampton.

It was a victory involving another dose of VAR and, less predictably, some post-match musings about the size of John McGinn‘s (£5.5m) backside, but the bottom line was the majority of Villa’s key assets delivering once again.

Ross Barkley (£5.9m) scored the winner when he headed home a Jack Grealish (£7.7m) cross – the fourth attacking return in five Gameweeks for the visitors’ 38%-owned captain.

And while the clean sheet was a fortunate one, it meant a fourth double-digit return of the season for FPL’s most owned goalkeeper, Emiliano Martinez (£5.1m).

Currently found in 32.9% of squads, the stopper pulled off some fine saves to deny the Saints.

But VAR helped out too, with a late Danny Ings (£8.4m) goal ruled out for offside by the narrowest of Matty Cash‘s (£5.0m) posterior-based margins, prompting the more generously-proportioned McGinn to later tweet:

Just as well it wasn’t my backside.

Cash had earlier survived a strong penalty shout when a Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) shot grazed his thigh before hitting his arm.

The full-back went on to earn maximum bonus and has now bagged extra points in each of his side’s last three shut-outs.

Some 323,454 Fantasy managers had bought into striker Ollie Watkins (£6.2m) for the encounter. He blanked, but Villa’s schedule is strong enough to offer the promise of returns until Gameweek 31, when things turn decidedly nasty.

As for Southampton, three straight defeats hasn’t prompted major sales of their assets just yet, although a midweek loss at Manchester United might change all that.

Southampton XI (4-4-2): A McCarthy; Bertrand, Bednarek, J Stephens, Diallo; Redmond, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Walcott, Ings.

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

Arsenal 0-0 Manchester United

Bonus: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) x3 Hector Bellerin (£5.1m) x2 Rob Holding (£4.5m) x2

Defenders were to the fore in a goalless draw as the 56.1%-owned Bruno Fernandes (£11.4m) blanked for the fourth time in five matches.

Only Tottenham’s Son Heung-min (£9.8m and 59.8%) is a more popular FPL asset than the Manchester United midfielder, but patience among his owners is surely wearing thin, even if that’s not yet prompted major sales.

Another midfielder, the in-form Bukayo Saka (£5.4m), was left out as a precaution due to a sore hip, much to the chagrin of his 11.8% ownership, but a generally under-strength Arsenal more than held their own against United, with Alexandre Lacazette (£8.4m) almost winning it when his free-kick hit the bar.

Previous bonus point magnet Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.4m) rolled back the years with the maximum award, helped by the fact he was one of only two players to provide a big chance on the day.

It was a third clean sheet in five matches for United and a fifth in six for the Gunners.

Of the two teams, the former’s schedule suggests more shut-outs to come over the next few Gameweeks.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Cédric, Holding, D Luiz, Bellerín; Xhaka, Partey; Martinelli (Willian 45), Smith Rowe (Ødegaard 83), Pépé; Lacazette (Nketiah 90+4). 

Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Shaw, Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka; McTominay (Martial 37), Fred; Pogba, B Fernandes, Rashford (Greenwood 80); Cavani.

Crystal Palace 1-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Goals: Eberechi Eze (£5.8m)
  • Assists: Jordan Ayew (£5.6m)
  • Bonus: Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) x3, Eze x2, Vicente Guaita (£4.8m) x1

A second-half strike from Eberechi Eze (£5.8m) was enough to win a predictably patchy game for Crystal Palace.

In a game of few chances and even less excitement, the main Fantasy news revolved around a third clean sheet in five matches for the home side and the absence of their most popular defender – the 18.1%-owned Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) – to take advantage of it.

He was replaced by Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) as Palace boss Roy Hodgson made six changes, including three at the back.

Further Fantasy salt was rubbed into Mitchell owners’ wounds when his replacement went on to earn the maximum bonus award.

Such an experienced campaigner could well keep Mitchell out of the side for the foreseeable future, although Hodgson showed plenty of appetite for innovation, switching his team to a 4-2-3-1 formation to both nullify Wolves’ midfield and boost the attacking threat of match-winner Eze:

We also think that Eberechi Eze is not a winger. In that position with Wilf (Zaha) to one side of him and Jordan (Ayew) to the other with a target-like centre forward…it might work out for us and get us on the ball more.

It’s a viable system and I think we can certainly get it to work but I think we were probably better when we went to what we’ve been doing when Eberechi went out into a position as a wide midfielder and Wilf went up top alongside Jordan Ayew. I thought we were probably slightly better in that respect.

But it’s not something which I wouldn’t try to do again because I think it’s got possibilities, that way of playing or that tweak in our system.

The experiment didn’t last the entire game, as Hodgson mentioned above, so a rush on Eze will probably have to wait, as will investment in a Wolves side with just one clean sheet since Gameweek 7.

Crystal Palace XI (4-2-3-1): Guaita; Van Aanholt, Dann, Kouyaté, Clyne (Ward 85); McCarthy (Riedewald 45), Milivojevic; Eze, Zaha, Ayew; Batshuayi (Townsend 79).

Wolves XI (3-4-3): Patricio; Kilman, Coady, Boly; Semedo, Dendoncker, Moutinho (Fábio Silva 78), Hoever (Traoré 63); Neto, Willian José, Podence (Vitinha 68). 

West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Fulham

  • Goals: Kyle Bartley (£4.4m), Matheus Pereira (£5.6m) | Bobby De Cordova-Reid (£5.3m), Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Matheus Pereira (£5.6m), Mbaye Diagne | Aleksandr Mitrović (£5.5m), Harrison Reed (£4.4m)
  • Bonus: Pereira x3 Mitrović x2 De Cordova-Reid x1

A surprisingly entertaining relegation scrap ended level in what was a classic game of two halves.

Fulham dominated the first period, but scored just the once, before West Brom improved to snatch the lead, only for substitute Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) to equalise four minutes after coming on.

With neither side pulling up the footballing trees this season, Fantasy interest in the encounter was the disinterested side of muted.

The most popular player on display, the 3.6%-owned Aleksandar Mitrović (£5.5m), made his first start since Gameweek 14 and responded with an assist and two bonus for only his third decent haul of a horribly barren campaign.

But the star of the show was West Brom’s Matheus Pereira (£5.6m), who is one of the few Baggies players clearly thriving under Sam Allardyce’s tutelage.

The midfielder scored, assisted and brought in maximum bonus points for a second double-digit score from his last four starts.

Over that period, he has four goals and an assist, although that fine form is currently only enough for him to squeeze into the top 30 for Gameweek 22 transfers-in.

But aside from a nasty double-header with Spurs and then Man Utd in Gameweeks 23 and 24, West Brom’s fixtures look attractive enough in the medium term to suggest Pereira’s 1.2% ownership might receive a bigger boost.

West Brom XI (5-4-1): Johnstone; Gibbs, Bartley, O’Shea (Grant 24), Ajayi, Furlong; M Pereira, Gallagher, Livermore (Phillips 83), Snodgrass; C Robinson (Diagne 45).

Fulham XI (3-4-2-1): Areola; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina (Tete 81); A Robinson, Anguissa, Lemina (Reed 72), De Cordova-Reid (Cavaleiro 72); Lookman, Loftus-Cheek; Mitrović.

    I've had only 2 red arrows since GW4 but big, big ones.

    Down from 469k to 827k in GW14.
    Down from 47k to 95k in GW21.

    The two times Salah scored a brace without being on my team. Maybe I should bring him in for a hit ?

    1. baines is god

      asap

      Yup

    3. COVID-CASUAL
        2 months, 17 days ago

        How many red arrows might've you had with Salah. Like in weeks GWs 15-20, for example?

      Best Man U defender to their long run?
      Shaw? Mcguire? Bissaka?

      1. FPL-(VAR)dy

        shaw

      2. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Shaw

      3. Utopsis
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 17 days ago

        Shaw - he is incredibly offensive and takes some corners

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          I don't know how much United you've watched since Shaw joined a fair number of years back. But 'incredibly offensive' I'd say was a bit strong.

          I don't know his stats but i do know he hardly ever assists let alone scores

          Shaw fan.United fan.

          1. Utopsis
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Only taking this season into account I'd say he's as offensive as Justin - who for me is very attacking as he's in the box on most Leicester attacks.

            "Hardly ever assists" doesn't mean he hasn't come close several times - just ask Cancelo. Even in the last game vs Arsenal, only the good Lord knows how Cavani missed his set-up.

            Throw in the fact that he shares corner and deep set piece duties with Bruno, and the fact that he's a BPS fiend when Utd keep CSs.

            So back to OPs question of which Utd defender in the long run, 100% Shaw for me for those reasons.

        Is it worth shipping Kane to Wilson for -4pts?

        1. FPL-(VAR)dy
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          whats the other move?

        2. Gabbiadini
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          Yes, Kane was a must trade last week.

        3. Royal5
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 17 days ago

          No

          1. KirkhamWesham
              2 months, 17 days ago

              I have DCL and Watkins.
              Other than Antonio, there's no other stand-out striker.

              1. Keeptrying
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 17 days ago

                Who'd play if you kept Kane on bench?
                -4 for Wilson should pay off.

                1. KirkhamWesham
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    DCL and Wilson uo front, would be my plan.

                    Currently;

                    Martinez
                    Dias Cancelo Cresswell
                    Salah Bruno Gundogan Maddison Soucek
                    DCL Watkins

                    Meslier Coufal Bednarek Kane

                2. Royal5
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  So just start DCL and Watkins. Male the ft next week

                  1. Royal5
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    *Make

                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      Personally wouldn't go near Wilson. One of the most frustrating players to own.

                      1. KirkhamWesham
                          2 months, 17 days ago

                          OK cheers

                          2 months, 17 days ago

                          Fair enough. I'll stick then.

                          Had a few beers and in a tinkering mood! Time to log out...

                Repost
                Start one of:
                Son(vs Che)
                Bamford(vs Eve)

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  surely you have other options to bench?

                  1. FPL-(VAR)dy
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    No I dont.Injury to kane and kdb meant i had enough cash to spread all around
                    Who would u start of the two on current form??

                    1. Gabbiadini
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      I'm fairly certain there'd be another option in your side worth benching more.

                      If you're adamant to pick on "current form" then you bench Son, but that's not how you decipher IMO.
                      You bench Bamford before Son.

                      1. FPL-(VAR)dy
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 17 days ago

                        Leno
                        Holding-Stones-Cancelo
                        Salah-Son-Bruno-Zaha-Gundogan
                        Bamford-Antonio-DCL

                        Set on the back 3.Who would you bench,apart from either of those.

                2. The Units

                  should have both starting

                  Both

                  Son if just one

                2 months, 17 days ago

                Who to captain:

                1. Salah (BHA)
                2. Sterling (bur)

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  Salah.

                  • 3 Years

                3. COVID-CASUAL
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    Sterling. Salah a benching risk.

                    1. Utopsis
                      • 1 Year
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      Benching is not an issue for Salah, he doesn't need 90mins

                4. Mile Plankton
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 17 days ago

                  I guess Sterling -> Salah is no brainer?

                  1. FPL-(VAR)dy
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    no

                  2. Gabbiadini
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    very sideways.

                    I wouldn’t. You’d think Sterling starts this week

                  4. Royal5
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 17 days ago

                    Wasn't sterling just rested?

                    1. Mile Plankton
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      And it looks like that will keep happening in the future.

                    more complicated then you'd think

                    1. Mile Plankton
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      Yup.
                      In my world Salah just scored 45 points for my rival and my captain Sterling scored a big fat zero for me.

                  6. COVID-CASUAL
                      2 months, 17 days ago

                      Next game I would guess Sterling 99% likely to start and Salah 50/50 start-bench. I'd captain Sterling if I owned him.

                    started Areola over Martinez
                    sold Dallas + Bamford for Mitchell + DCL
                    3rd striker Rodrigo got injured
                    Though got saved by Sterling no show, Salah vc

                    what to do here??
                    would like to roll transfer and have a week off from transfers!
                    also 3 hammers vs Martinez isn't great for me

                          Transfer done...Chilwell out for Maguire.

                          Feel like Shaw may get the odd rest, especially with the Europa ties coming up.

                            What's the appeal of United defence?

                            They may get 2 CS in the next 6. Don't see it personally.

                          Ok, sell one of these for Salah?

                          A) Son
                          B) Bruno
                          C) Grealish

                            D but I don't like that trade.
                            Salah doesn't have the easiest stretch of 3 games by any means.

                            1. Mile Plankton
                              • 8 Years
                              2 months, 17 days ago

                              I don't think I can afford not having him vs Brighton.
                              I guess I am still under influence of 45 points he scored against me today.

                              1. Gabbiadini
                                • 3 Years
                                2 months, 17 days ago

                                How many points do you see him needing v Brighton before his next two tough fixtures to consider this trade a must?

                                1. Mile Plankton
                                  • 8 Years

                                  It's not about that actually. I just don't want to go without him anymore. If rivals can beat me with Rashford and Pedro Neto, ok. But I don't won't Salah to be their differential.

                              I wouldn't think LEI as that tough

                            A...but tough to decide

                              I'd be losing too much in value. But I guess at this point, it's not about value anymore.

                            nope.
                            I traded in Gundo before WBA over Sterling when $ was not an issue due to security of being in the side and not much less attacking threat.

                            To give my rival 13 off the bench on Wilson lol

                              Presumably just the odd rest. Jose seems to love him.

                              Slow and not even a CB, for me, but then I'm not an actual manager.

                              Jose has his champions and his slaves

                            If you had Grealish, Antonio, Bamford:

                            A) Wilson
                            B) Watkins

                              Watkins from those, not keen at all on Wilsons fixtures

                            Any word on the Castagne injury?

                              Brendan Rodgers on Timothy Castagne: "He felt his hamstring. I don't think he's got a tear in it but he just felt it tighten up and as a precaution, we took him off."

                            Think this is the week to use my 1FT on Fabianski down to Forster following my BB.
                            (Martínez is on my field).

                            1. Mile Plankton
                              • 8 Years
                              2 months, 17 days ago

                              I'd rather save FT. It's not really a pressing issue.

                              1. Gabbiadini
                                • 3 Years
                                2 months, 17 days ago

                                Well I will then only be making it the next week to generate desired $.

                                  Still better. What if you get more pressing issues?

                                  1. Gabbiadini

                                    2 months, 17 days ago

                                    that is true, possibly I save the transfer, a price rise/fall would force me into it this week though definitely.

                              2. 420king

                                Right. He can do if next week if nothing else comes up.

                            How does Soup to Jack this week sound with the above team in mind. Have exact funds.

                            Anything else with the 2.5m stick out?

                            Is Cedric nailed for next 3 fixtures?
                            He passes eye test and differential

                              No, Tierney is very close to being back. It was a game time desicion.

                              Great round. Up to 3k!
                              So.... Doing 1 transfer. Kane out for...

                                I genuinely do not see a viable option.

                                Which striker would you bring in who has DGW26 according to Ben Crellin?
