Havertz and Pulisic hitting form but rotation remains an ongoing issue at Chelsea

Crystal Palace 1-4 Chelsea

  • Goals: Christian Benteke (£5.5m) | Kai Havertz (£8.2m), Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) x2, Kurt Zouma (£5.3m)
  • Assists: Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.3m) | Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.7m), Havertz, Mason Mount (£7.2m), Reece James (£5.0m)
  • Bonus Points: Pulisic x3 Benteke x2 Mount x1

Chelsea made short work of Crystal Palace, with star turns from Kai Havertz (£8.2m) and Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) and another solid shift from Mason Mount (£7.2m).

The victory was a redemption of sorts after Gameweek 30’s 5-2 drubbing by West Brom, and Fantasy managers will have looked upon the attacking intent of Chelsea’s advanced midfielders with interest.

Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft

At the heart of Saturday’s victory was the interplay between Havertz and Pulisic.

The pair have struggled, for various reasons, this season, but coach Thomas Tuchel’s decision to use both in attacking roles paid dividends against Palace.

Havertz was again employed as a false nine, a position he’d been handed for the midweek Champions League win at Porto, with Tuchel’s tactics vindicated at Selhurst Park.

“He needs to be in high positions, either half positions or the number nine position. This is not a big difference for me. He got a second chance to show up after Porto and he did that.”

Not that the coach was unequivocal in his praise:

There is still room to improve in finishing, he can be more ruthless, he should have scored more, but it was a good step and a good performance.

Of the six big chances Havertz has had this season, three came against the Eagles.

He opened the scoring from the first one and should have beaten the over-employed Vicente Guaita (£4.8m) from close range towards the end of an otherwise impressive outing.

As for Pulisic, he started a third straight match under the German for the first time, with the coach talking pre-match about finally finding the right position for the USA international:

I think the half positions in the front three could be a perfect fit for him.

He’s certainly finding some late-season form – three of his four goals this campaign have come over the last two Gameweeks.

Gang Of Four

Two other midfielders shone brightly at Selhurst Park.

Chelsea’s most popular FPL asset, Mount (18.1%), set up a goal – one of two big chances he created on the day – and carried a consistent goal threat, as mentioned in the members section.

That was enough for the England international to pip Havertz to the final bonus point award, and his six-point haul on the day took him back into FPL’s top ten midfielders.

Wing-back Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.7m) was another to impress.

His assist for Havertz’s opener was one of a match-leading five chances created and he was consistently deployed well in advance of his team-mate on the opposite flank, Ben Chilwell (£5.8m).

Not that either wing-back will attract many more owners as long as Tuchel continues to chop and change his personnel. Hudson-Odoi has started just two of the last seven matches and Chilwell two of four.

The former Leicester full-back’s start at Selhurst Park meant that Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) was only among the substitutes, which was yet another reminder to his owners in FPL that they need a strong playing bench to accommodate his sporadic luxury appearances.

King Kurt

A thumping Christian Benteke (£5.5m) header meant a second straight Gameweek without a clean sheet for a Chelsea defence that had managed four in a row before that. Given that the Belgian’s effort was the Eagles’ only shot of the game, Fantasy bosses will find the latest shut-out loss particularly galling.

But the 7.8% of managers with Kurt Zouma (£5.3m) in their sides had that particular disappointment offset by a fifth goal of the season from their man.

That’s the most by any centre-half, and only Leeds United’s Stuart Dallas (£5.1m) has more (seven) among defenders, although he’s spent chunks of the season in midfield.

It was Zouma’s fourth headed goal of the campaign – the most by a defender – and three have been set up by Mount, as was the case on Saturday.

The Frenchman may not have even played, however, had Andreas Christensen (£4.7m) not missed out with a minor hamstring injury.

Fun Boy Three

Tuchel is already making a name for himself as a tinkerer, but he seems to have found a nice attacking blend in Havertz, Mount and Pulisic.

Chelsea’s run-in is mixed, with visits from Brighton and Fulham to come over the next three Gameweeks, but West Ham, Man City, Arsenal, Leicester and Aston Villa among their last six opponents.

Factor in FA Cup and Champions League duties and second-guessing Tuchel’s line-ups could be the stuff of madness, but that trio at least have the potential to offer a lot of goal threat for players classed as midfielders in FPL.

Palace, meanwhile, spent the first half on Saturday doing a very good impression of a team thinking of post-lockdown beaches.

The one faint glimmer of hope came from Benteke, who scored his second goal in four starts and earned some praise from boss Roy Hodgson:

He’s doing well. He’s certainly working hard. He’s trying to do the sort of things we’re preaching and asking him to do, and it’s very good he’s starting to score some goals. His goalscoring for the last couple of months has been on a regular basis.

Those managers willing to consider Benteke, or any other Hodgson man, should take into account the fact they will face Leicester and Man City after a Blank Gameweek 32.

And although there will be a Double Gameweek (involving Southampton away) after that, they still have to face Liverpool, Arsenal and Aston Villa before the season’s end.

Crystal Palace XI (4-4-2): Guaita; van Aanholt, Kouyaté, Cahill, J Ward; Eze (Schlupp 59), Riedewald (McCarthy 59), Milivojevic, Ayew (Townsend 76); Zaha, Benteke.

Chelsea XI (3-4-3): E Mendy; Rüdiger, Zouma, Azpilicueta; Chilwell, Kovacic (Ziyech 83), Jorginho (Kante 61), Hudson-Odoi (James 76); Pulisic, Mount, Havertz.

      Keep Sterling or switch to Salah?

      1. Bavarian
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        of course switch

      2. FantasyClub
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Get rid of Sterling ASAP lol how does anyone still trust him

      Anyone care to have a stab at the GW33 FH template?

      Seems to me that it's likely close to current template as it stands just minus Spurs pair. Lingard will be awkward with that fixture as will Chelsea defence.

      Any particular advantage to FH that week?

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        The usual suspects minus City & Spuds

        1. pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          City are now ex template surely

          Really can't see where the variation is likely to be bar Maddison in and perhaps an overload on Brighton instead of Chelsea at the back.

      2. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Triple Brighton and Leicester

        1. pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Yep

          I guess Brighton will reappear. Deeply irritated at having gone Cresswell over Dunk in 29 now. Had half an eye on this week but the collapse in WH defence wasn't something I'd factored in. I was imagining it was their attack that would go first - this is all deeply un-Moyes

        2. pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Not sure who the third Leicester would be. Vardy? Not irrational as a FH punt given Palace.

          I wouldn't want part of that defence.

      Would this be good enough for next week.
      Still have wildcard.

      Martinez
      Shaw Dallas Azpi Dias
      Lingard Bruno Salah Son
      Kane Nacho

      Raphinha Coufal Mitrovic Forster

        Dallas over Coufal? Tight call that one but you might be right.

        Play Coufal over Dallas, he wouldn't score 17 pts each week...

          • 9 Years

          I know but west ham can't defend either. At least Dallas might nick something up top.

    5. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Having Wildcarded out my Man City content due to rotation, i now only have Kane & Son missing for GW33. I could easily carry them on the bench for 1 week if there was a better week to use a FH.

      So is there any other week that sticks out to use the FH?

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        There's rumours of a potential blank and double if fixtures are rearranged to allow all teams to have 1 match with home spectators. Could be gold for that, but only speculation at this point

        1. Fit_to_drop
          • 2 Years

          Cheers for that.

      This is a funny old game.

      9 days ago I was asking who to get for Auba out of Salah, Son and Jota.
      Everyone said Son.
      Now everyone would say Salah.

      1. The Knights Template

        Son

      2. Corgzzzz

        Really like it

        Haven't ruled out a similar set up with Robbo TAA from 35 and Puli is very high on my watchlist, Just need Chelsea to lose a few more cup games first.

        1. Sylas
          • 6 Years

          Thank you!

      3. Pukki Blinders
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Robbo over TAA makes little sense. Drop Puli. Where’s your Chelsea defence.

        1. Sylas
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          I have both Robbo and TAA. I don’t fancy the Chelsea defence as I don’t see them getting a lot of clean sheets.

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 26 days ago

            Wow I’m blind but double Pool defence is bringing back good and bad memories. Watch out for Puli’s rotation then

        2. pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          The curious point about Chelsea defence is that even during their cs run they were only matching United defence for actual returns and despite deficit in cs Meslier and Martinez were outperforming Mendy. Patricio could do the same.

          They're an option of course but not necessary.

          Liverpool have way better defensive fixtures here on in and both Robbo and TAA (who he has) have plenty more in them for returns at both ends. If there's budget for it it's a perfectly respectable play.

        We can keep arguing luck/ no luck. The fact is, whichever side you are on, you will still come back and play it next year. The real world is ADDICTIVE.

      Early thoughts on this please. I wC last week and had pencilled in my transfer this week to do lingard to son. I don't have enough to do Neto to son.

      Is having both son and Kane essential for the double gw? Surely It would be madness to take lingard out for son now.

        I've same team, Son instead of Neto.

          That's the ideal move but I'm £0.3 short.

            Do you want to give Moura a chance?

              Never thought of that. He could be a rotation risk though.

      Anyone considering Moura over Son? He has looked extremely lively. Even last night he was good and could have been on the score sheet instead of Son if he had been more selfish.

      1. The Knights Template

        Will have both

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          I have planned DCL + Gundo to Nacho + Son for -4. Now considering just Gundo to Moura this GW and Konsa to Shaw next.

      2. Little Red Lacazette
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Nah, Moura is in the same class as Sterling. No-go this season.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Sterling in a class of his own. More like Redmond.

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Sterling falls in Lundstram category 😛

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 26 days ago

            Lol

      3. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        You can call it FOMO but whenever I think about avoiding Son or Bruno for upcoming run, their is always 2nd thought of IF they do well, I would feel like an idiot since the fixtures are decent.

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Hahaha. Same here. But I could get Shaw or Lingard for example with that extra cash.

    18. SomeoneKnows
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Drop Mount for Son?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Nope. Drop someone else

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Yeah

      3. Corgzzzz
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Really, you must have someone else ?? great team otherwise

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Not necessarily depends of prices and if hits are required

        2. SomeoneKnows
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Other options are Salah, Jota, Bruno, Lingard

      4. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Same boat and not a clue ..

    19. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      I am bit concerned about spurs playing Southampton just a few days before the cup final. Dont you think there could be some rotation?
      Getting son in my team means restructuring it quite a bit so not overly keen.

      Thoughts?

      Thanks and gl

      1. Corgzzzz

        After yesterday result they will not rest anyone.......top 4 is everything more so than the FA cup.........

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          After yesterday they have even less of a chance of getting top 4, mourinho will put all his eggs in the trophy basket

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 26 days ago

            That's what I am wondering

        2. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          It's final of League cup but see your point

        3. Original - Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          They ain't good enough to get a top 4, even Mourinho knows that.

          1. pingissimus
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 26 days ago

            True

            But I'm not sure I can name a 4th team right now that is 🙂

      2. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Still need to push and finish as high up the league as possible. Lloris, Son and Kane should start every game from now onwards

      3. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Little bit worried yes. Top 4 is out of reach. Youd think he want a trophy at least from this season.
        Little hesitant for tc chip now.

        1. Original - Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          I agree TC chip is not worth playing here.

      4. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Thinking Spurs will play their best team a few days before the League Cup Final seems to be wishful thinking. Getting a trophy would give Mourinho something to shout about. I wouldn't be surprised if he rested both Kane and Son.

        1. No Kane No Gain
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          More chance of maybe a early sub for kane against Southampton but yes as also a TC holder, I am going to wait!

    20. Fit_to_drop
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Anyone have any insight into what has happened Laporte. I took a punt on him playing more minutes than Stones & Dias till end of season (covering him with a good first sub) but now wondering if I should sell?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Think he is first choice with Dias now so will be held back before UCL games now

      2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        I think he is injured.

    21. Robson-Canoe
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 26 days ago

      Hey guys,
      Does anyone know why D.Sanchez wasn‘t in the Tottenham squad yesterday? I got him in on my WC for the double but am now thinking of replacing him with Aurier. Any thoughts?

      1. Corgzzzz
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 26 days ago

        Cos Jose has not got a clue !!!!

      Son Fernandes Jota Gundogan Smith-Rowe

      Got myself into a bit of a mess so need to take a hit or two. I have Cancelo Gundo and DCL > TAA Lingard and Iheanacho already pencilled in for -4 but is that enough?

      Patrico (Forster )
      Shaw Trent Rudiger( Dallas Coufal )
      Jota Salah Lingard Bruno Son
      Kane Nacho( Davis )

      Thoughts ?

        I would not change anything.

      A. Neto -> Mount for -4, bench one of Dias/Coady

      B. Start both Dias and Coady

      Gundo > Son for -4?

      1. andymck

        Yes

      Help appreciated chaps! 2 FT, 1.7 ITB.

      Martinez
      Shaw, Dallas, Cresswell*
      Salah, Fernandes, Lingard, Jota, Gundogan
      Kane, Lacazette

      (Sanchez, Dunk, Watkins, Konsa)

      A) Gundogan & Cresswell* -> Son & Mitchell
      B) Gundogan, Cresswell* & Dunk -> Son, Rudiger & Struijk (-4)
      C) Gundogan & Watkins -> Son & Brewster/Davis
      D) Gundogan & Lacazette -> Son & Iheanacho

      Thinking A or B due to Cresswell injury and Lacazette form, and then Watkins or Lacazette -> Iheanacho for GW33 (WBA)?

      Cheers

      I played WC last week with a plan to BB in GW 32, but now I think maybe I should TC Kane instead. Which chip would you use if you had my team?

      Leno
      Rudiger Fofana TAA
      Lingard Son Salah Jota
      Kane Lacazette Ihenacho

      Forster Gundogan Lowton Coufal

      1 FT

      Who's the priority to ditch/get in this week?
      Nacho looks close to essential
      But Cancelo is Pep routlette and to Man City care anymore they are so far ahead. Who to replace him with?

    31. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      What's wrong with this wildcard? Will be ditching Son for the blank, and aiming to bring in Ings for the future double. Also looking at Dallas and Raphinha for GW34/35 onwards.

      Martinez Patricio
      Dias Coady Rudiger Azpi Phillips Coufal
      Bruno Son Jota KDB Lingard
      Kane Iheanacho Vydra

      1. Holmes

        Nothing wrong. 6 defenders are overkill

          • 2 Years

          Oops! Ignore Azpi, had to downgrade to Rudiger.

      2. 2OLEgend

        KDB -> Salah

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 26 days ago

          Would you go Jota -> Gundo in that case to keep some City coverage, or just go double attacking Pool?
