Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation getting best out of Werner and Alonso

CHELSEA 2-0 NEWCASTLE

  • Goals: Timo Werner (£9.2m), Olivier Giroud (£6.7m)
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus: Giroud x3, Kepa Arrizabalaga x2 (£4.7m), Marcos Alonso x1 (£5.7m), Antonio Rudiger x1 (£4.6m)

WERNER DRIVER

Thomas Tuchel appears to be getting the best out of Timo Werner (£9.2m) after he registered a fourth attacking return in three matches in Double Gameweek 24.

Having failed to score a Premier League goal since November, Werner looked a threat against Newcastle right-back Emil Krafth (£4.2m), as he rampaged down the left with Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) all game.

With his new manager deploying him on the left-hand side of the front-three in a 3-4-3 formation, Werner is often finding himself as the most-advanced Chelsea player on the pitch.

This allows Werner to make more runs in behind the defence, which we saw against Newcastle as he was played in time and time again behind Krafth.

In Lampard’s previous system, Werner often found himself isolated as a number nine, or out on the left-wing where he was having to track back.

But the forward is clearly relishing playing higher up the pitch and driving Chelsea attacks, also creating three assists in his last three games.

Tuchel explained after the game that his goal is to get Werner into more advanced positions.

“He did very good (sic) in the first half, second half was too many decisions backwards. I’m convinced Tim was very decisive for us today with an assists and a goal. I’m very happy for that, he really deserved it, he’s been working hard and we could feel this would come. I think he can also play as a double striker, sometimes as a number nine if he’s clever enough to use his speed and runs. His favourite position and his biggest strengths are if he can drift out to the left side.”

Thomas Tuchel

Judging by Tuchel’s comments, and the fact that he has started each of the last four games, Werner seems to be a key part of the new Chelsea side.

With the striker appearing to be back in form in a system tailor made for his style, it could be time to reconsider Werner for our Fantasy Premier League sides.

PARTY LIKE IT’S 2017

FPL managers were treated to another nostalgia trip at Stamford Bridge by the sight of Alonso rampaging down the left.

Frozen out of the team by Lampard, Alonso seems to be back in favour after the arrival of Tuchel, starting three out of the German’s five Premier League games.

Playing in his favoured position of wing-back, Alonso showed just why he can be a devastating FPL asset.

With three centre-backs behind him, Alonso frequently joined in with Chelsea attacks and regularly found himself in the box.

He also wasn’t shy to let fly from range, and had the most attempts on goal of anyone on the pitch.

Alonso’s re-emergence has surprisingly seen Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) left out of the side, a big step-change considering he was one of Chelsea’s best assets under Lampard.

Tuchel has previously said that while he admires Chilwell’s talent, mainly fielding Alonso due to his expertise at wing-back.

“We took the choice for Marcos in a game where we played with five because he was more familiar with the position he played under Antonio Conte. We opted for Marcos against Burnley for his strength in the air then Marcos had a very good match and scored a decisive goal, and from there it was hard to come back. I had a talk with Ben before that match and told him ‘you have to trust me now, I see your potential, I see your talent’.”

Thomas Tuchel

Should Tuchel stick with the back five formation, then it sounds like Alonso is his current first choice. And if the Spaniard can keep delivering four shots in the box every game, then he will be just as good an asset as he was in 2017.

TUCHEL POWER

Chelsea continued their impressive run under Tuchel, with four wins in five games and only one goal conceded.

Added to this, Chelsea also have a strong run of fixtures coming up, as shown in our Season Ticker.

The main threat to any Chelsea asset right now appears to be Tuchel’s rotation, especially with the return of the Champions League.

Only Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m), Jorginho (£4.7m) and Antonio Rudiger (£4.6m) have started all of Tuchel’s five games in charge.

With Kovacic offering little from an FPL perspective and Jorginho’s returns seemingly limited to penalties, Rudiger looks the best option of the three for consistent returns.

GAYLE FLAT

With star striker Callum Wilson (£6.6m) likely to miss the next two months through injury, Dwight Gayle (£5.9m) returned to the Newcastle attack.

But Gayle’s performance summed up another dismal display for Newcastle.

As the heatmap below shows, Gayle failed to perform Wilson’s role of leading the line for the Toon, and found himself dropping back into midfield to try and help cover Alonso and Werner.

(Gayle number 12, Fraser 21)

Gayle only managed one shot during the whole game before he was hooked off and replaced by Joelinton (£5.7m).

The heatmap also shows another Wilson alternative that Newcastle fans, in particular have called for.

Ryan Fraser (£5.6m) may have only had a cameo appearance at Stamford Bridge, but he was one of the few Newcastle players to look threatening going forward.

And with Newcastle playing a fluid front two, many have called for the Scot to be played in a false nine position.

CHELSEA XI (3-4-3): Kepa; Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta; Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, Hudson-Odoi (James 78); Werner, Abraham (Giroud 20), Mount (Kante 70)

NEWCASTLE XI (4-3-3): Darlow; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Lewis; Willock (Carroll 79), Shelvey, Hayden; Gayle (Joelinton 64), Almiron, Saint-Maximin (Fraser 72)

    Is Ings worth a -4? Not sure about those fixtures

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Ha just posted the same (in more detail)
      Don’t love the fixtures either tbh

      1. Old Bull

        1 month, 27 days ago

        Just read your post. Yeah I think I might let alone for now

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

      his fixtures on the long run are great imo

      Depends on who you are selling. I wouldn't probably ditch Cavani, but Antonio did go.

      1. Old Bull
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I’ve just got this hunch that when Antonio returns, he’ll punish the sellers. It would be DCL.

          I think Ings is worth a go. Chelsea has played a list of nobodies in terms of striekrs and attacking prowess since Tuchel took charge.

          Only real challenge has been Spurs without Kane. Southampton are still quite a good pressing team and Ings is very clinical

      Definitely not. Didn't travel.

  3. Dele

    Any chance of Ings, Dallas, Raph rising in price tonight or do I hold out until Friday?

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Were meant to rise last night - lots of WCs in play

    2. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      They have no games to play so you'll be extremely unlucky to get an injury at this point

      1. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        So if money matters then go now

  4. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Brought in Cavani for DCL last week hoping to get 2 good fixtures out of him.
    Would you just hang on this week or shift to Ings for -4
    Did Soucek Antonio to Raphinha Bamford already
    Other striker is Rodrigo who I assume is still out so will play 352
    1.3itb so can’t do Rodrigo to Ings
    Plan is sterling to Gund next week to help fund Kane

    1. tomasjj
      • 6 Years

      I would keep for NEW at home.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        this. -4 for ings doesnt make sense especially with ings playing chelsea first game

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

        Logical right...

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I did same last week and unless Cavani plays full 90 minutes on Thursday v Real Sociedad will keep for Newcastle otherwise might be tempted to bring in Ings particularly if he has doubles confirmed in 26 and 27 or 28. This week cannot see scoring v Chelsea so looking at it as single week plus 2 points

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        * but in my case is a free transfer so not sure worth hit.

      2. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Good point re Europa League
        Looking like a hit next week to do Sterling to Kane so prefer to wait. Then again depends on how gw26 fixtures fall
        Maybe the extra hit or 2 over the next couple of weeks preserves my wildcard til gw31

  5. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 6 Years

    play pope or areola. am playing lowton if that makes any difference. cheers

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Areola I guess

      Goes against the grain but WBA slightly more threatening

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

        thanks Pingi. my keepers have kept an amazing 6 cs this season so need good advice 🙂

          I’m the goalie guru!!

          Got 24 points in weeks 1 to 15. But have had only one 3 pointer since then

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            So 8 out 24 tbf guru Pingi?

              • 2 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Oddly the only times I’ve missed cs since 16 were when Guaita saved a pen and Mendy conceded an OG to SU.

              Playing Pope myself

    1.9 itb 1ft

    Would you WC this team ?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

      Nope

    2. camarozz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      My team not far off this and I'm planning a WC once fixtures are out?
      If not WC now then when? Also have FH and 2fts for Leeds players so I really don't know wat to do

    3. Who are all Lukakus
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      same question, with this team, 0 FT

      Martinez Pope
      Dias Cancelo Dallas (Mee Lowton)
      same 5 mid
      Ings Bamford (Antonio)

      in your case I would replace Coufal, Mitchell, Antonio, you also have 1 FT so maybe no need to WC

    Anyone else having an absolute nightmare of a GW? Meanwhile so many others have smashed it. FML

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

      people who post their scores tend to be the ones who have good gws, they are more quiet for their below 50 scores. I wouldnt worry about it 🙂

      1. bobfredbob
        • 1 Year

        Thanks mate, good point. And it’s a game after all. Just painful when you have so much hope for your team and it turns into a disaster gw haha

      2. noquarternt

        Yeah this 100%, it's usually only braggers:

        - I'm on 110 with 7 to play, any good?

        - Omg I've got such an average score of 90pts with a red arrow down to 560 OR :'(

      Like a gambler you only hear about the wins.

  8. hammersp2000
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Csnt decide which Leeds players

    Transfer in Dallas for free or aloiski and rafinha for a -4?

    Thoughts?

    1. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think the second as you're buying an extra fixture.

  9. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Currently on Bamford C but isn’t Raph the real form horse at Leeds? Anyone else eyeing him up for the captaincy?

    1. Dannyb
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, it's between Raph and Dallas for me.

    2. noquarternt
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Tempting isn't it- if you're chasing it could work out well.

      I'm interested in why Harrison hasn't been mentioned anywhere on here if I'm honest.

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      definitely. i think their stats are similar but raphinha gets more points per goal obviously.

      i am however very tempted by Bruno.

    4. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He’s tempting me a lot more that’s for sure. The issue is Bamford’s EO and he’ll be very highly capped. If he scores then it’ll hurt more

    5. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Someone said that Bamford has slightly better Xg from open play across their last 6 games.

      Bamford’s on penalties too, so that swings it for me.

  10. Dannyb
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Antonio and TAA to Dallas and Ings - 4?

  11. noquarternt
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    JWP- bit of a differential to rocket up the ranks?

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      He def could be. But he’s certainly not a guaranteed asset in terms of returns!

      It’s a real punt but depends on your position and risk appetite!

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, I feel like people are too down on Saints. They have got some missing players back.

      Of course, if they announce 3 consecutive DGWs for them, FPL managers might switch in no time. Would be typical.

  12. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    People considering Ings (c) really only hoping for big win vs Leeds? Can't imagine Chelsea will concede many if at all.

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah, upside is rather limited in a way, although he is more differential.

      1. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Equal amounts of excitement and anxiety when considering Leeds attackers vs defence

  13. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    I did Soucek > Raph with 1FT. Planning TC in 26 and WC in 30 prob. Which move looks better?

    A) Antonio > Ings with the other FT and then Ings > Kane in 26
    B) Roll second FT and get Kane for free next week, ignoring Ings

    Tbh I’d love to maybe differentiate more in GW26 and not be drawn by fear of EO - maybe a LEI mid or Vardy. Grealish or Watkins. But maybe I’m overcomplicating!

    1FT 3.4itb
    Pope
    Dias, Dallas, Shaw
    Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundogan, Raphinha
    Bamford (C), DCL
    (Martinez) (Stones, Antonio*, Coufal)

    Cheers!

    1. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I've got 7 of your front 8 (Watkins over DCL) and am tempted by Son Antonio to Barnes and Kane for gw26...

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yeh losing Son would do my team the world of good and then frees up a good amount of cash for a differential.

        Barnes is v appealing

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Barnes or Maddison is the smart play

          I of course have gone the other way and got Vardy and Son - a more expensive combo.

          Think Leicester are being overlooked. Form team and their likely DGW could be more or less equal to Spurs if they get Fulham Burnley

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Agree re LEI

            So would you roll the FT in my case and get in a LEI player in 26 with the 2FT in my case?

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Having 2FTs is gold right now

              For the second time in 101 game weeks even I am rolling this week!

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years

      roll for me

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks AH

        Need to find myself something more exciting than just the Kane bandwagon for 26 I think !

    3. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I would only do A If Soton get confirmation of the double double. I'm not a huge fan of using 2FTs to transfer Ings in 25 and out 26

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yeh I think I agree.

        Having 2FT for 26 will be great tbh. Just need to find a hot differential or two to help jump me ahead

        1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Here is a great in depth threat on Barnes vs Maddison vs Vardy from the Liverpool game

      One reason I switched from double City defence to Sterling alongside Gundogan- easy switch from Sterling once KDB up to speed

    A. Digne to Dallas (already have Bamford and Raphinha)
    B. Soucek to Barnes (preparation of LEI fixtures)
    C. Bring forward Antonio to Kane move
    D. Other suggestion

    Plan to TC26, WC30/31, FH33

    2FT 5.7itb
    Pope
    Cancelo Stones Digne
    Salah Bruno Gundo Raphinha
    Bamford Antonio DCL
    (Martinez Soucek Cresswell Holding)

      Think I like B mate

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I'm slowly getting swayed to bringing in a LEI player. Owned Vardy twice this and was frustrating to watch. I like Barnes playing alongside Vardy and cheaper than both Vardy and maddison

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Agree with this

    2. Red dev
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I would be worrying about the fitness of dcl and antonio and prioritise a forward. Kane would be sensible. Or Ings maybe for this week

        1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          DCL should be fine for the weekend and like him as an option against Liverpool defence and potential DGW26. I'll be losing Antonio either in 25 or 26. I would only bring in Ings if he gets the 2 DGWs confirmed.

      Who scores more in 25:
      A) Raphina
      B) Dias (+4 points)

      Basically A I sell Saka for Raphina for -4, and bench Dias. Can see City keeping arsenal out, so Raphina needs 10points to break even.

      1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        A - Raphinha has the stats to suggest he can score more than that over the two games

      2. Big Hands Barry
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Raph. Dias a good first sub

    4. Red dev
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Is there any definite double gw fixtures confirmed for 26?

        1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          No

            So annoying, isn't it?

        2. Red dev
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Very annoying ha especially when we know the fixtures for blank 29

        3. Dele
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Digne, Grealish, Antonio > Dallas, Raph, Ings? -4

          1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I probably would take the hit

          2. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Wouldn't do the middle one, unless you need the cash for the Ings upgrade.

              Might get Grealish back next week

                • 2 Years
                1 month, 27 days ago

                Grealish attacking numbers have been poor in recent games

            Looks decent tbh. Attack the fixtures and none of the players you’re losing has been in great form

          Is Strujik nailed at Leeds? 3.9 option played last few

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years

            For now, until Koch or possibly Llorente are back.

            Great cheap punt for DGW25. Been a decent threat from set pieces.

          Looks like a half day Friday frm work so if these fixtures don't appear soon.

          Maybe it’s because I’m getting old but I can’t digest the available knowledge like I used to.

          I'm more excited about getting the opportunity to remove Soucek on WC than the team itself. By far the most annoying player to own in the game.

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 6 Years

            last player i was excited to sell was foden and then he hauled after that so dont get too hyped 🙂

          I literally have no clue what to do re BB. I currently have

          Pope (Martinez)
          DALLAS Cancelo Shaw (Rudiger/Stones)
          Gundo Bruno Salah Grealish Barnes
          BAMFORD INGS(c) (Antonio)

          1.8itb and 2FT

          If I bench boost I would want to get rid of any none DGWs or certainly only leave one.

          I may bring Raphina in this week for Grealish and that would leave me with 3 Leeds (which I would like to leave for 29)

          I may go TC26 on Kane (if I bring him in) but I literally have no clue when to BB

          Please help

          1. Chandler Bing

            Why Ings (c) and not one of the Leeds boys?

              • 3 Years

              Because I think he will score more points. Any views on the BB?

          Last GW my benches scored 36

          This GW they scored 23 (including Dallas' -1).. Hope for a Dias no show to change that ..

            Wouldn't mind that, got Rudiger to come in with 7. Why did I think Chelsea would concede to Newcastle?

              no one knows, perhaps Ben is just a normal dude who manipulates everyone to improve his rank...

          why all the love for Kane but not Son?
          I thought their stats are quite similar, if not better for Son

          1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
            • 2 Years

            Better pick for captaincy and on pens

            Fair question

            Kane goals get the baps is one issue I suppose. But I suspect some doublethink here. Spurs without Kane have done poorly and that has affected Son too, I think a lot were relying on Son to perform as well without him as he did last season. But Spurs simply aren’t the same animal this season

                Id really like Kane for dgw26 but DCL will have a nice double then too.

                  Yeah, no Kane or Son, as you have in 3, is very bold. If not feeling that bold, then 1.

                  I have the same dilemma. Definitely soucek to raphinha. Then antonio to kane or ings. Could do ings and swap to kane next week. West ham defence good at the moment so kane could blank
