Scout Notes

Can FPL managers still trust Brighton defence after derby debacle?

Brighton 1-2 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: Joël Veltman (£4.3m) | Jean Philippe-Mateta (£5.8m), Christian Benteke (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Jordan Ayew (£5.6m), Andros Townsend (£5.5m)
  • Bonus points: Benteke x3, Mateta x2, Veltman x1

DERBY DISASTER

Brighton failed to deliver on their recent defensive promise as they lost the A23 derby to Crystal Palace in a dramatic fashion.

After dominating proceedings with their 25 shots, Graham Potter’s men fell to a stoppage-time winner from substitute Christian Benteke (£5.5m).

Such a disastrous end to the game was frustrating for the growing number of Fantasy Premier League managers invested in Brighton’s defence.

They had kept five clean sheets in the previous six Gameweeks, 62.5% of their shutouts for the whole campaign occurring during a period which pitted them against Spurs, Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Furthermore, Crystal Palace had not scored a single Premier League goal in five matches without Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) this season… until they netted twice on Monday night.

Can Brighton’s defence still be trusted then?

A Double Gameweek 26 meeting with West Bromwich Albion still holds clean sheet promise based on Brighton’s mid-term form and the fact that Sam Allardyce’s men have blanked in two of their last three.

They also face Southampton (away) and Newcastle (home) between now and Blank Gameweek 29.

BACK TO BASICS

While Crystal Palace have hardly been a team worth relying on for defensive returns this season but they showed a glimmer of potential on Monday night.

They weathered Brighton’s storm of 25 shots impressively, producing a total of 56 on the Clearances, Blocks and Interceptions (CBI) metric.

Gary Cahill (£4.5m) said at full-time that the Eagles’ recent form had triggered a ‘back-to-basics’ approach from them in the A23 derby.

For a team like Palace, that means a focus on defence. If they are able to lay down another deep (and effective) block in Double Gameweek 26, it is possible that Tyrick Mitchell (£3.9m) could be a worthy starter or someone to Bench Boost.

A more defensive approach makes it more likely the left-back will start ahead of the more adventurous Patrick van Aanholt (£5.4m) while Fulham have the second-worst shot accuracy in the Premier League over their last four matches.

“I think that was an important factor because we had to accept we weren’t able to do enough ourselves with the ball, when we were able to win it back. We were put under pressure immediately and as a result quite often the ball was more around our area and final third than we were able to get into theirs. But I thought the resilience, the determination and the sheer guts really that the players showed both in terms of the shape of the team in those areas, but also in terms of their desire to block and not concede clear-cut goal chances.” – Roy Hodgson

WHAT A WONDERFUL PHRASE

Jean-Philippe Mateta (£5.8m) will be pleased with his first Crystal Palace goal but it could be Benteke who answers the Eagles’ questions about playing without Zaha.

Over the last three Gameweeks since making his Premier League debut, Mateta has registered just two efforts on goal.

By contrast, in just 105 minutes over the same period, Benteke has unleashed seven efforts on goal.

Five of those have been inside the penalty area and five were on target.

That makes for an impressive minutes-per-chance figure of 15 while James Maddison (£7.3m) is the only Premier League player to register more shots on target than Benteke since Gameweek 23. His total of five is level with Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m), Phil Foden (£6.1m), Jesse Lingard (£5.9m) and Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m)

“(Benteke’s goal) should make a big difference. This is what all coaches expect of their players. You can only pick XI. There are always going to be people left out of the team that makes people think the coach doesn’t know what he is doing. The only thing players can do is take their chance. All too often, I find, players would prefer to feel sorry for themselves than do what Christian did tonight. Come on for the last 15 minutes and prove the manager wrong for not picking him.” – Roy Hodgson

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-1-2): R Sánchez; Burn, Dunk, White; Alzate (Welbeck 46′), Bissouma, Groß (Jahanbakhsh 81′), Veltman; Mac Allister (Lallana 68′); Maupay, Trossard.

Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Guaita; Mitchell, Cahill, Kouyaté, J Ward; Eze (J McCarthy 90+1′), Milivojevic, Riedewald; A Townsend, Mateta (Benteke 75′), Ayew.

    Team for dgw looking like this for now.

    Martinez
    Cancelo Stones Lowton
    Rashford Fernandes Salah Gundogan
    Ings* Bamford
    McCarthy Raphinha Antonio Justin

    I have 2.5 itb. 0.1 short of the transfer I want of course! Thinking of Ings to Kane and Justin to White for -4. How does that sound? I know I won't have DCL but so be it! I'm doing well in some mini leagues with prizes and at 3.2k rank so trying to play safe! Cheers

    1. tommo-uk-

      Your team is similar to mine, what about Ings to DCL?

      1. Bob.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Could do that but I want Kane more. Especially with the gw29 fixture he has too

        1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          Everton could have an extra fixture too...

    2. Boly Would
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      If Kane is priority, good moves in my opinion

    3. Tcheco
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Not for a -4 when you could get DCL for free imo.

  2. Taegugk Warrior
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    Chance Mitchell starting for both games...?

    1. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Just look at his minutes played. Don't think he is nailed

    2. Fit_to_drop
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 22 days ago

      I wouldnt. I wouldnt even go first sub. Id prefer a SGW with a good fixture. I have him 2nd sub.

  3. tommo-uk-
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 22 days ago

    FT - Ings Out DCL In?

    Yes or No?

    Also opting to stick with Son instead of taking hits to bring Kane in.....right idea or not?

    1. Bob.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Could get away with it yes. Most likely if Kane scores or assists, son will be involved

    Imagine if every consecutive pair of FPL Gameweeks had formed a Double Gameweek so far this season — how would each of the popular captain assets have performed? (Click on link for DGW “form” matrix)

    https://twitter.com/legomane_fpl/status/1364202030114500608?s=21

    Anyone unleashing their Triple Captain this week — who are you backing?!

    1. tommo-uk-
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Im not sure there will be a better time to use it but its just who to go with!? Whoever i pick will be the wrong option as my TC has failed so many years in a row!

    2. Keeptrying
      • 7 Years

      Good stuff, thanks.
      No TC, but C probably on Bruno.

    3. Team Bobcat
      • 4 Years

    5. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Pick one to play:

      A- Reed ( Palace away and Spurs home)
      B- Bamford (Villa home)

      1. tommo-uk-
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Bamford all day!

      2. Tonyawesome69 FHXX
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Got to be Bamford - Reed is averaging 2-3 points

    6. Rbyrne95
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 22 days ago

      Hmm, so. Choices. Have 2 FT, one has been made for keeper (Areola or Sanchez), now need help with the other please?

      A) Swap Cavani to Kane? have .1 itb
      B) Swap Cavani to Kane and Bamford to Watkins for -4
      B) Swap Bamford and Cavani to Vardy and DCL for -4?

      Only annoying thing is that Adams is my third striker and planning to BB

    7. marcos11
        1 month, 22 days ago

        Anyone know what happens FTs when you free hit? Do your free transfers roll over and do you get a FTs for the week you FH?

        1. tommo-uk-
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 22 days ago

          I may be wrong but im sure 1 free transfer is taken away for the FH.

          1. marcos11
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Should l burn my FTs the week before I FH then to prevent losing them?

          2. Keeptrying
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 22 days ago

            no rollover.
            You will have 1FT after FH, regardless whether you went into FH week with 1 or 2FT

            1. marcos11
                1 month, 22 days ago

                So ideally I should go into a FH week with no FT?

                1. Keeptrying
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  Well, no need to make a transfer just for the sake of it. But definitely do not save FT if you can use your FT(s) before a FH for a good reason 🙂

                  You get your old team back after you FH and 1 FT.

                  Make unlimited free transfers for a single Gameweek. At the next deadline your squad is returned to how it was at the start of the Gameweek.

                    Please note that when playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek.

            1 month, 22 days ago

            Mendy, Bamford, Holding to Martinez, Watkins,Konsa for -8?

            Gives me 3 doublers and 3 extra fixtures for 29...

            1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 22 days ago

              Leave bamford and do the other 2

                • 4 Years
                1 month, 22 days ago

                I need the funds from the Bamford move to do it actually...
                I could do it with Coufal out instead of Holding though

                Dcl, sterling and the usuals

                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 22 days ago

                  I'm assuming the usuals are Bruno and Salah. Surely you can fit in one from Spurs and LEI and still have the others.

                  1. beric

                    Not without loads of hits man, 0itb and 1ft. Any hit would mean losing raheem too which I'm not keen on

            2. tommo-uk-

              1 month, 22 days ago

              I have Son & Barnes, but bricking it not having Kane!

                    Yeah it's the-16 bb, which I would still have 3 Leeds on...or just brave it with no hits. Leaning towards the latter now. Not gunna wildcard though, its gunna be mega to use that after gw30

                      Fair enough.
                      FH 29 sorts any need to WC in 30/31 so I'm considering WC this GW. Let's see.

                Which defender can you buy if you do:

                Dias, Lookman & Vardy to defender, Son, Richarlison?

                  Would leave me with 3.5 ITB

                Hmm.
                Possible with Salah, Richarlison & Gundogan over KDB, Vardy and Lookman?

                  Would require 2 moves. Anything stand out?

                Hi
                Can't decide

                A) Sterling and Watkins

                B) Barnes and Kane (-4)

                Help please

                  B for me. But I'd wait for Grealish news and City's lineup tomorrow

                Lol @ Guardiola lying he doesn't know what FPL is while he's been trolling us all along. Well played Pep, well played!

                    How much better off do you think you'd be rank wise if you were in Pep's position and always knew the line up!

                    Pep is obsessed with real football. FPL is nothing to him.

                  Does Konsa have decent goal threat?
                  Sadly can't afford Targett...
                  I remember Konsa doing well at the start

                  1. Amey
                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 22 days ago

                    He does on set plays.

                    Nah would not say decent , would say limited . And since Cash been out Villa have looked pretty shaky at the back.

                    Probably quite even between Konsa and a Fulham defender for 26 + 29. If you need him to play in 27 or 28 then Konsa for sure.

                    Last season I played my triple captain on Sergio Aguero after the restart. It was the double gameweek where they had Arsenal and Burnley at home.

                    First game: He's benched. Ok that's not to much of a disaster he'll start the easier one against Burnley. Comes on for 10 minutes and gets an assist. 4 points.

                    Second game: He gets a penalty just before half time but is injured and doesn't take it. Mahrez converts so Aguero 4 points. Doesn't appear second half.

                    Total of 8 points from two home games where City scored 8 goals.

                    I just want my triple captain to score one goal. Just one damn goal. Just for once.

                      That's a haul compared to my history. Really hope they get rid of it next season.

                      Then slap that TC on one of DCL Vardy Kane this week

                          Kane is the one I'd go for. Saw this on Twitter after following Legomanes link above:

                          Harry Kane vs the bottom 8 teams in the PL this season:

                          GW2: 21 pts
                          GW3: 5 pts
                          GW6: 5 pts
                          GW7: 6 pts
                          GW8: 9 pts
                          GW12: 9 pts
                          GW17: 12 pts
                          GW18: 8 pts
                          GW19: 9 pts
                          GW23: 8 pts

                          10 games, 0 blanks, averaging 9.2 points per game

                          BUR (H), FUL (A) in GW26

                            Its a fair case but whats scaring users off is the general lack of form on Spurs part.

                        So 24 points from your triple captain and you're complaining?!

                        Wasted mine on Mané last year. Grand result of 3 pts there, while all my rivals put in on Salah.
                        Talk about a wast of a chip!

                            Well it's 8 points because he would have been captain anyway 🙂 Suppose it's better than the 2 points Alexis Sanchez got me as TC.

                          No spurs cover but is my team ok for the doh or? -4

                          Martinez
                          Cancelo, Shaw, Digne, Tarkowski
                          Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Gundogan
                          Cavani, Dcl

                          Mendy, Ings, Minamino, Strujik

                            Unsure on the cavani pick. Would get in Kane or DCL

                          Which Option is Best?

                          A) Ings Out DCL In (FT) - TC Son
                          B) Ings & Son OUT Kane & 6.9 Mid In (-4) - TC Kane

                            B with Barnes

                            1. tommo-uk-

                              Already have Barnes 🙂

                              Team as follows

                              Pope/McCarthy
                              Cancelo/Stones/Dallas/Shaw/Coufal
                              Salah/Gundo/Bruno/Barnes/Son
                              Bamford/Ings/Davis

                            Could do Kane and Barnes for -4, could well pay off

                              Would you BB a bench of:

                              Areola (cry, TOT)
                              Burn (wba)

                                  I think I would. That way it's done and you can focus on the first 11.

                                    yeah, get it out the the way. Could pay off with that bench

                                  It depends if you think you'll be improving your bench at any point before the end of the season. Depends a lot on your chips.

                                Is this worth a -12 this week?

                                Pope/Mee/Son/Ings > Martinez/Digne/Barnes/Kane

                                Would probably TC Kane

                                Think I'm going to get the BB out of the way. Agreed?

                                A) Bench Boost this lot: Pope* Lowton* Raph Dallas
                                B) Triple Captain Kane

                                          I that chip gone before I WC. I will still have a couple of good subs but can go with a 4M GK and 5th defender with the chip gone.

                                    Which premium defender to go for on my WC?

                                    I can pick two of the below, but would probably give me a benching headache every gw, currently own Cancelo but looking to change the rest here on my WC.

                                    A) Dias
                                    B) Digne
                                    C) Pereira
                                    D) Reguilon

                                    Would you BB with this bench?

                                        Yes.

                                            Great answer in my mother language haha

                                        Yes. Basically if your bench has two DGWers on it BB.

                                          Will struggle with TC, but this is the best option for a BB week

                                        Yes probably - don’t know when you’ll get another opportunity as good as that

                                      Sterling, Ings to Gundogan, Kane (TC) risky?

                                        Wouldn't get rid of sterling with two doubles coming up

                                        I would do the moves even if you only Cpt Kane

                                          gundo should match sterling, so yes

                                        What are those doing who are triple captaining this GW and still have WC and BB left, when will you look to play WC and BB?

                                          Planning on WC in 30/31 due to the fixture swing and can dead end to gw29. Unsure when to BB though - will try keep a playing bench

                                        1-1 tonight with dallas and romeu scoring tonight would be awful, need a 0-0 or a 3-3 thriller

                                            1 month, 22 days ago

                                            Expect the worst and hope for the best. I've got Dallas, Raphinha, Bamford (c) and Ings tonight. One Bamford/Raphinha combo and an Ings goal would be sweet.

                                          1 month, 22 days ago

                                          Raphinha->El Ghazi/Lookman for a hit and start over Bamford?

                                            Unsure for a hit, particularly if no FH left

                                          Appreciate suggestions with this lot. Currently thinking of getting Kane in for the TC:

                                          £0.2 ITB, 2FT

                                          Martinez
                                          Cancelo, Rudiger, Dallas
                                          Sterling, Salah, Bruno, Gundo, rashford
                                          Watkins, Bamford

                                          Forster. Struijk, Antonio, Kilman

                                          No Free Hit so do need to consider GW29.

                                          Best 6.9m Mid for this GW not including:

                                          Barnes & Gundo

                                            Is Kane essential with Son??

                                            Would probably be
                                            A) Kane, Lookman
                                            B) DCL, Barnes
