Scout Notes

Assessing Lingard and Iheanacho’s sustainability after latest FPL hauls

West Ham 3-2 Leicester

  • Goals: Jesse Lingard (£6.4m) x2, Jarrod Bowen (£5.9m) | Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) x2
  • Assists: Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m), Bowen, Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) | Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m), Marc Albrighton (£5.2m)
  • Bonus points: Iheanacho x3 Lingard x2 Bowen x2

Two more goals added to the Jesse Lingard (£6.4m) hype train, which even a late Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.9m) double couldn’t derail.

The in-form striker’s brace did, however, deny the England midfielder the maximum bonus point award, although Lingard still produced a third straight double-digit haul for his 22.8% ownership.

Lingardium Leviosa

Lingard continues to fly high since making his loan move to West Ham.

He now has eight goals and four assists in nine starts for David Moyes’ men – that’s just two assists shy of his best season at Manchester United (2017/18), but from about 1,000 minutes less pitch-time.

Unsurprisingly, he’s put on over a million managers in FPL over the past three Gameweeks.

Small wonder that Lingard’s ownership levels are rising yet again following Sunday’s star turn and he currently tops the transfers-in table ahead of next Saturday’s trip to Newcastle.

That starts a generally favourable run-in for West Ham during which they will host Chelsea and Everton, but also travel to Burnley, Brighton and West Brom before a final-day home fixture against Southampton.

With a Champions League place now entirely in their own hands, Moyes is unlikely to tinker with his side any more than necessary, further ramping up the appeal of Lingard and his team-mates.

Bowen For Gold

One enforced change for Moyes was replacing the injured Michail Antonio (£6.6m) up front, with Jarrod Bowen (£5.9m) stepping in and stepping up.

He scored for the third straight match, with an assist taking him to a first double-digit score since Gameweek 10.

Should he continue as a frontman, his low cost and ownership (1.8%) make him a strong differential candidate for those looking to steal a march on mini-league opponents.

It is also worth pointing out that Lingard’s latest haul was largely unaffected by Antonio’s absence, further boosting his long-term Fantasy credentials.

On the downside for West Ham, and owners of their defenders, they made it three straight weeks of either blowing, or nearly blowing, a three-goal lead.

Their most popular asset, (and FPL’s most owned defender), Aaron Cresswell (28.3%), spared his managers that pain by limping off with a hamstring injury after 52 minutes. His owners’ agony was one of a different kind, his substitution occurring eight minutes before he would have claimed a clean sheet and his first-half booking meant he scored zero points in Gameweek 31.

Speaking post-match, Moyes was unsure as to the extent of the issue for Cresswell, and also for Mark Noble (£4.5m), who injured his elbow.

“My biggest concern would be we really can’t afford to lose too many more players through injury because it will affect our performances as we go along.” – David Moyes

The pair will undergo scans this week, with any Cresswell news especially relevant for many Fantasy managers.

At least the 5.5% on Vladimir Coufal (£4.6m) gained assist points for the second straight game to offset the goals conceded, but the Hammers’ backline is looking rather too generous to encourage investment at present.

Not So Cunning Foxes

Leicester were poor in the first half, improved in the second and, in Iheanacho, have a red-hot striker.

His brace took him to seven goals from his last five starts, four of which have come with maximum bonus awards, and he now has an ownership (8.3%) bordering on the respectable.

Like Lingard, he’s attracting more managers for Gameweek 32, and the Foxes’ immediate schedule – West Brom, Crystal Palace and Newcastle at home, Southampton away – certainly warrants that interest.

Crucially, he has outscored Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) by 52 points to 23 since Double Gameweek 26, besting him for 21 attempts on goal to nine during the same period.

Many Fantasy bosses would have been hoping to evaluate the form of James Maddison (£7.2m) ahead of those fixtures.

But a Covid-19 breach by the midfielder led his manager, Brendan Rodgers, to drop him (and two others) from the match-day squad.

“We’ve dealt with that. The players are disappointed. They’re good boys, they’re not going to get thrown away. We’ll draw a line under it. They’ll rejoin us next week and we will prepare for the (FA Cup) semi-final.” – Brendan Rodgers

Defensive options remain limited in a side with just one clean sheet since Gameweek 23, although Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) underlined his attacking credentials with an assist and a match-leading 11 penalty area touches.

West Ham United XI (3-4-1-2): Fabianski; Cresswell (Balbuena 53), Diop, Dawson; Masuaku, Soucek, Noble (Johnson 82), Coufal; Fornals; Bowen (Benrahma 84), Lingard.

Leicester City XI (3-5-2): Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Amartey (Thomas 45); Castagne, Praet (Albrighton 59), Ndidi, Tielemans, R Pereira; Vardy, Iheanacho.

SHEFF UTD 0-3 Arsenal

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) x2, Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m)
  • Assists: Danny Ceballos (£4.7m), Nicolas Pepe (£7.6m) Thomas Partey (£4.9m)
  • Bonus points: Lacazette x3 Rob Holding (£4.2m) x2 Ceballos x1

Alexandre Lacazette (£8.3m) made it four goals in six Gameweeks as Arsenal swept aside an increasingly awful Sheffield United.

So poor were the Blades that the brave souls still invested in the likes of Bernd Leno (£5.0m) or Rob Holding (£4.2m) – and that’s nearly 11% of FPL managers all in – were treated to clean sheet points for the first time in nine matches.

But it was more about the Gunners’ attacking fluency at Bramall Lane, with Lacazette’s opener a fitting finish to a clever flicked assist from the impressive Dani Ceballos (£4.7m).

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has not been afraid to play his younger stars this season and, in the absence of three key attackers, he handed Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9m) a rare start in what has been an injury-hit campaign.

The striker responded with a goal, but the match was more forgettable for fellow starlet Bukayo Saka (£5.2m), who had only just come back from another issue, only to limp off with a thigh problem after 68 minutes.

Arteta was guarded about the injury after the game.

“He had discomfort in his thigh and it’s the last thing that we need because we’re missing some big players at the moment and we don’t want to lose another one. I don’t know the extent. Hopefully, it’s not that serious.” – Mikel Arteta

Some 7.2% of FPL managers will have to wait and see on their man, who could be a key figure in Arsenal’s good run-in, with tricky matches against Everton and Chelsea offset by encounters with four of the bottom five and 13th-placed Crystal Palace.

The problem for anyone considering Arsenal options is Europe, with the Gunners’ only real chance of securing a Champions League place next season involving winning the Europa League.

Should they progress from Thursday’s quarter-final second leg against Slavia Prague, Arteta is highly likely to rest key men for the semi-final ties which come before Gameweeks 34 and 35.

That’s a problem for another day, and there is at least only one issue involving Sheffield United players – just don’t own them.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Baldock, Stevens, Ampadu; Egan, Osborn, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood; Burke (Brewster 64), McGoldrick (McBurnie 64 ((Mousset 83)). 

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Chambers, Holding, Mari, Xhaka; Ceballos, Partey; Saka (Willian 69), Pepe, Martinelli (Elneny 83); Lacazette (Nketiah 89).

    A or B, mates?

    Mendy
    Fofana, Rudiger, Holding
    Salah, Bruno, Gundo, Jota, Neto *
    Kane, Vardy

    Forster, Masuaku, Philips, Davis

    A) Gundo, Neto, Vardy to Son, Lingard, Nacho (-8)

    1. RogDog_jimmy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B given the double. Else I’d just do Neto to Lingard I think.
      Vardy to Nacho for a hit seems unnecessary unless you need those funds.

      1. HD7
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Well I need them If I do A

        Jota is the sacrifice in B, but looking at 33... no Jota and Gundo is blankig.

        Aint an easy decision

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Agree. Jumping around on the mid price mids is fraught. Thinking in 2-3 week banks is smart.
          Does Vardy + Neto to Son + Nacho work?

          1. HD7
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            It seems reasonable. Only thing is a Vardy big haul will really haunt me, mate 😀

        Hey fellow Ninja. If you still have your WC you could get the likes of Kane, Son, Lingard, Nacho for free.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Cool, seen it in LMS quite a bit in the past 😛

    • jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      How about this for a GW:
      Sold Havertz and Dallas for a hit.
      Sterling(C).
      Aubameyang, DCL, Lascelles & Pope no shows.

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Woof.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Rotten luck.

      2. noahzark22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Level 10 oof

      3. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Non of those are bad decisions. Just bad outcomes. I went Sterling captain too and even though he did so so well for me at the end of last season, I will struggle to trust him in FPL again.

      4. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Unlucky. I would have gone Sterling captain if I could have done. Anyone decent off the bench?

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          Konsa(0) Forster(2) Watkins(8) autosubs

      5. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Not many with Auba and Sterling. Form just not there although I see the punt potential. Could have been huge.

      6. waldo666

        Wow, doesn't come much worse than that!

    • Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Which one sounds better for you?

      A) Bruno -> Son for free
      B) DCL & Jota -> Vydra & Son (-4)

      Mendy
      Rüdiger, TAA, Dias, Holding
      Salah, Bruno, Jota, Lingard
      Nacho, Kane

      Subs: Forster --- DCL, Raphinha, Veltman --- 1 FT, 0 itb

      1. Hart-ake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Neither is ideal...

        1. Jam0sh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Well not ideal but doesn't matter. Going for one of the options nevertheless

    • HD7
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      5.6 midf who is worth it?

      Raphinha is two GW early.
      Pereira - can he keep it up?
      Maybe Saka is a good punt?

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Probably just go straight to Raph, can bench him if needs be over the next two.

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Agree with this. Do that now and save thinking about it later. Leeds put two by MC too...

            • 3 Years

            Yeh that’s likely to be my exit pass if the chips pay off for people. Do you have that data of how many of the last ppl on LMS still have chips?

              Will have a look a little later, think 91 of the 185 used their WC this GW including 12 who got eliminated.

                Big chunk! But also leaving half with chips to exploit!

                Should be fun

        29 points away from top 10k. No chips left. Sounds like nothing but methinks it’ll be a struggle - especially because I’m only 24 points above 50k!

        Attempting to beat my PB this season (38k). Hoping it’s easily doable but this year has been a real rollercoaster ride!

        1. Cheeto__Bandito
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Does sound like a lot to me considering how templated every team is and how hard it was for me to get into top10k only to bounce straight out after when below par week

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              Yeh I have had weeks after weeks this year of moving through treacle.

              Now at 25k after autosubs (21k before) and hoping to finish as decently as I can

            I’m 2 pts behind but still have TC/FH, trying to beat 25k for the second time

            All to play for..

              You’ll easily do it!

              Should be a strong run in for you

                Let’s hope.. usually finish strong but this is an odd season. 10k would be nice...

                  Has been a v strange season for sure. First time in a few years I’ve not had at least a couple of chips to play in these final few weeks. Nervous times ahead!

          How's this for a potential FH draft in 33?

          Sanchez
          TAA Dunk Pereira (Shaw, fodder)
          Salah Bruno Jota Greenwood Maddison
          Lacazette Iheanacho (Watkins)

          Anyone I'm missing?

            Interesting. Can you hold on the FH in case of bigger dgw to come? I think 35 or 36 could be.

            Also do wonder if 3x attacking double ups is the way to go - better chance that one of a double hits but less of a chance all six return? (Maybe...I don’t know).

            1. Hart-ake
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              I may well save it for 35/36 but just assessing what you could get on a 33 fh.

              The 3 attacking double ups are what attracts me to it actually as they are by far the standout fixtures.

          1FT, 0.0 ITB. Two avenues I could go down this week- or take a hit. Pick one:

          1) KDB —> Bruno
          2) Bamford —> Nacho
          3) KDB/Bamford —> Bruno/Nacho (-4)
          4) other?

          Mendy
          Shaw / TAA / Rudiger
          Salah / KDB / Son / Raphinha / Jota
          Kane / Bamford

          Areloa / Dunk / Dawson / 4.2

            I might roll that.
            KDB could well play. Having 2 ft into gw33 will be super useful. Not a bad team at all to me.

            I beg your pardon! Hold and wait for others to make the panic move first. If you need inspiration you will find it in Australian speed-skater Stephen Bradbury's remarkable winter olympic gold medal performance. You too can do a Bradbury and make the top 10k!

          Would you continue picking double Chelsea defence going forward (Rudiger and Mendy) or spread the risk?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 7 Years

            Spread risk.

            Palace only managed 1 shot against Chelsea - I think they were unlucky. The double up is still on but spread the risk if your other defenders are good opportunities for point this week

            I got three in my WC. Mendy Rudi and Alonso.
            Kinda regret Alonso already but it was always a punt that would only pay out a few weeks I thought.

            I have a similar team, I am considering WC next week to offload City and maybe sacrifice Kane to get in Salah and TAA. At this stage it feels like I'll be using BB in 38 tbh!

              Plan to wc in 34 and BB in 35. Would you do digne and Vydra > nacho and coady/ reg this gw for a hit?

                    Think he means you treat each transfer individually. So the DCL to Nacho will only be a -4.

              Sterling + Neto both need to go, Neto the priority out but Son the priority in. Get rid of both for a hit for Son + X?

              why not do both?
              if not i'd do the second and start someone off your bench.
