Smith Rowe tops the GW35 points table as Tuchel laments his own rotation

Chelsea 0-1 Arsenal

  • Goals: Emile Smith Rowe (£4.2m)
  • Assists: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m)
  • Bonus: Smith-Rowe x3, Bernd Leno (£5.0m) x2, Rob Holding (£4.3m), Gabriel (£4.9m) x1

Arsenal channelled the spirit of George Graham at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, grinding out a hard-earned 1-0 win.

It was a classic backs-to-the-wall display, with Arsenal registering only seven penalty box touches all evening – a total matched by Olivier Giroud (£6.7m) in a 25-minute cameo.

They did ride their luck, with Kai Havertz (£8.3m) missing an early sitter and Chelsea hitting the woodwork twice in quick succession.

But the Gunners have been solid on their travels all season and this was their eighth away clean sheet of 2020/21, a total that only Manchester City have beaten on the road.

And up next is Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, a side that have scored just twice in their last six home matches.

ROTATOR WAFFLE

A total of 18 players were used by Thomas Tuchel across his side’s Double Gameweek 35, with only Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.9m), Reece James (£5.1m), Billy Gilmour (£4.3m) and Christian Pulisic (£8.3m) escaping a benching.

Azpilicueta remains Tuchel’s most-used player since his appointment, having started 15 of the Blues’ 17 league matches from Gameweek 20 onwards.

That’s one more than even Edouard Mendy (£5.2m) has managed; the Chelsea custodian was benched again on Wednesday, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (£4.7m) handed his third Premier League start in the Tuchel era.

The Chelsea boss has had great success with his squad management since his appointment but this proved to be one step too far, with the Blues delivering a flat display.

An admirably honest Tuchel said after full-time:

The choices were not so good today from my side.

I’m not happy with my line-up, was too many changes. I should not have done it like this.

RIGHT PAIR OF BLANKERS

Arsenal and Chelsea now take a backseat in Blank Gameweek 36, with the Blues’ involvement in the FA Cup final on Saturday meaning that they and Mikel Arteta’s troops are without a Premier League fixture this coming weekend.

With Chelsea’s Gameweek 37 and 38 fixtures sandwiched by their appearance at Wembley and the UEFA Champions League final, it seems likely that we’ll see a similar division of minutes between their squad – although a top-four place could still be on the line on the final day and Tuchel’s comments above are worth bearing in mind.

As for Arsenal, their elimination from the Europa League means that they can focus on domestic matters, although the odds on them qualifying for Europe next year are still long.

A double-header against Crystal Palace and Brighton is a decent way to round off the season for the Gunners but again, Arteta’s predilection for a spot of rotation – there were five changes tonight – will be offputting for some Fantasy managers.

RED ALERT

Wednesday’s result suddenly handed an advantage to Liverpool in the race for a top-four place.

Leicester and Chelsea face each other in Gameweek 37, meaning that the Reds ‘only’ need to win their remaining four Premier League matches to secure a qualification spot for next season’s Champions League.

That should keep Jurgen Klopp’s starting XIs at full strength for the remainder of the campaign, with their FPL assets enjoying some favourable matches against the likes of West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace in Gameweeks 36-38.

EMILE PESKY

One of FPL’s cheapest midfielders is the highest-scoring player of Gameweek 35 so far.

The busy Emile Smith Rowe (£4.2m) found the net for the second successive match to end the Gameweek on 19 points.

While not rotation-proof, he’s been a regular in Arteta’s side: of the last 19 Premier League matchday squads he has been available for, Smith Rowe has started on 16 occasions.

That’s an excellent record for someone so cheap, as is his tally of seven attacking returns in those 16 starts.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) has been less reliable for minutes but when he has featured, he has quietly delivered.

The Gabon international has seven goals and two assists in his last eight league starts and it was he who teed up Smith-Rowe for the game’s only goal in west London.

    Are we assuming Forster is rotated back out this weekend?

      Manager said they'd play 2 games at a time, but then seemed to walk that back a little ahead of this GW. Prepare for a benching if you're able to.

      Given he said he'd play Forster twice & then give McCarthy some games, and had delivered on the former - would guess a higher chance of yes than no.

    Good Evening all!!! Anyone going with Kane for the rest of the season??? I dont have him at the moment, have DCL, Watkins and Nacho, thinking of doing Nacho to Ings this week then Watkins to Antonio next week then DCL to Bamford final week, this is good plan??? Thoughts welcomed!!!

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Kane does have a couple of good fixtures, but I'm not sure if he's a priority buy unless it's to captain.

      DCL & Watkins fine this week. DCL better than Kane this week, but Kane probably better than Watkins.

      Nacho is sellable for 3 chances at outscoring him - Ings/Antonio/Bamford all decent choices.

      May be worthwhile having one Spurs player but it's a risk either way. Maybe they're pants & not having them pays off, or it goes tits up.

        Hello mate, yeah this is why I’m exploring going without, I will captain Salah or DCL this week and I will captain Greenwood vs Fulham coz I am doing Bruno to Son this week so I have that Spurs ‘cover’. Not at all exited about Watkins I got him in for this week after seeing people in my mini leagues picking up points from him every week and low and behold he gets sent off!! Typical haha. I quite like Ings and if I went for him next week would be Watkins to Bamford or Antonio!! Then DCL to which ever of Those two I don’t by the week after or maybe Wood away at Sheffield United

          • 11 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          I’m weighing up Bruno to Son, but can’t work out how id get him back in for 37. Are you planning to bring him back in?

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            I’ve got Greenwood mate, so I will captain him vs Fulham if I don’t get Bruno back, if I do Nacho to Kane it would mean the option to get Bruno back is gone, If I did Nacho to Ings I still have the option to get Bruno back if I need too, so need to give it a bit of thought really

          2. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            I'm doing Bruno > Bale (would be Son perhaps, but short of funds).

            Not really planning on transferring him back in. Assume hell have a reduced role vs. Wolves, so would only be getting him for Fulham.

            No doubt he could do well vs. Fulham but for me personally:

            A) I have Greenwood. If Greenwood does play, that's is hopefully decent coverage.

            B) He is a good captain choice that week, but I can potentially get away with captaining Salah (BUR) or Kane/Bale (AVL).

            C) I already have a benching headache in GW37, and I have 0 ITB. Only way of getting him now would be a -4, or for Salah, which isn't worth it.

              6 months, 25 days ago

              I really fancied Bale, but it be played safe on gone Bruno to Son!! Both great options but everyone I my league below me has him so I went for him to shut up shop a bit there and he’s on good scoring form too,
              I have Greenwood too and will probably captain him against Fulham which is why I decided to let Bruno go, and like you say the Wolves game I don’t see him playing at all or at least he won’t start, no need to risk him before the Europa League final!!

          I fell into the Watkins trap this GW too. Fun times 🙂

          At least we didn't have to sell immediately for next GW...

          I like the sound of Wood for SHU personally. I feel like Wood has finished strongly a couple of seasons or so, good player.

            Yeah I’ve had him twice this season and not had a return at all and missed penalty too I remember!! Yeh bit of luck that we get him for Palace, then he’s gonna go for me.
            Yeah he’s been immense mate!! Very reliable, quite fancy him there for the last gameweek could be a brace for sure!!

    Rudiger to Coufal for a -4 worth it for the run in? Have 10 players next week.

      Yes.

    Do you think that Bruno could get a rest vs Fulham?

    1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Bruno will play I reckon.

    2. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Bruno plays. But I’d expect a very weakened team for Wolves.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I don't see much point in him resting that match.

      13th > 18th > 23rd > 26th (Europa League Final)

      He'll play vs. Liverpool. 5 day gap before Fulham.

      There's another 5 day gap between Fulham & Wolves, but only 3 days between that and the final.

      It feels sensible that he plays Fulham, then rests up for the final - but Bruno loves to play, and likely is still around the squad for 38.

      I just don't see the other scenario happening with him playing 90 in GW38 & missing GW37. (Since no way he misses both. Frankly more likely he just plays all lol.)

  6. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    Can decide between Bamford, Antonio and Ings to bring in for Nacho

    1. More Cowbell

      Can’t *

    2. Eastman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Ings. Wish I could afford him

    3. FPLord
      • 12 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      I prefer Antonio but could go either way

    4. JBG
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Antonio, specially if you don't have Lingard.

    5. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 25 days ago

      Ings

    6. waldo666

      Bamford

  7. FPLord
    • 12 Years
    6 months, 25 days ago

    Pretty set on a -8 (2 FT) to field eleven. Which move would you prefer?

    A. Maguire, Davis, Vardy, Ihenacho > Coufal, DCL, Bamford, Antonio
    B. Maguire, Fernandes, Vardy, Ihenacho > Coufal, Mahrez, DCL, Kane

    1. wulfrunian

    Quick vote - chasing for the run in, who'd you want more?

    1. Bamford (Have Dallas)
    2. Antonio (Have Lingard)

    1. FPLord

      Antonio close

    2. GREEN JUMPERS

          Don't think I'll make top 1 K now unless I get everything right in last 3 weeks. Captain is essential.
          My focus is winning my main mini league now . I'm ahead but every point counts at this stage which is affecting my choices.

        Difficult to tell without knowing your whole team. Nacho>DCL sounds good, but there might be a better way as Shaw could be great against Fulham

            • 12 Years

            Shaw probably wont play in 38, but maybe you have another one to downgrade first

        Lots of love for Antonio but...

        Brighton at home have conceded 11 big chances and 44 shots on target both categories the best team in the league.
        Also 4th better for goals conceded.

        He might return but I don't see anything big

          No dunk though does help his cause

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Taken from Bakars analysis

            Brighton's defensive numbers without Dunk this season v with Dunk

            Big chances conceded per game: 1 v 1.34
            Average xG conceded per game: 0.85 v 0.93

                6 months, 25 days ago

                Don't disagree but they are 3rd better for clean sheets and 4th better for goals conceded.

                So at home they converted the good stats into results

          As an Antonio non-owner I do hope that's the case, but do you think not having Dunk could affect their defence negatively?
          Veltman also a doubt.

            I replied above.
            Brighton more based on system.
            Of course it weakens them but West ham aren't great either lately.

          I would go ings ad long as you have the money.
          Even if kun starts he is not explosive anymore.
          Soton have good run of fixtures

        2. FPLord

          Guaranteed to start the final game seeing as it’s at home in front of fans. Then you’re gambling on him starting one of the next two which I would say yes

        Well done to those smashing the ton this week.
        Had a shocker myself around 65 with Bruno Salah Trent and El Ghazi to play.
        Chasing now so just gotta have fun and take some risks. The likes of Rudiger Son and Greenwood have killed me lately.

        This time with more context: ~29k OR -- I lead ML by 85, but closest rival and I have the same United players. No chips left for either of us.

        1) Greenwood, Shaw > Mahrez, Dallas (-4)
        2) Greenwood, Shaw > Son, Alioski (-4)
        3) Bruno, Rudiger > Son, Digne (-4)

          you need more context..
          Rest of your team.

          Wouldn't want to throw out any united players ahead of their last two matches if you can cope for one round without them.

            There will be mass rotation for their last game ; the Europa team will probably not start at all.

        Bamford always seems to make way for Rodrigo, that's why I'm going Raphina.

        But with Raphina back, Bamford could have a haul by then.

        I have the luxury of FH and want Ings this week, but Bamford is a good choice.

        Lots gonna be slit between Bam and Antonio.

      13. duststorm

        A) DCL - 4
        B) Bamford

        1. duststorm
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Need to sell Shaw to fund the move for DCL

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            DCL for a -4 might be okay however selling Shaw could bite you back given FUL in GW37. Decent chance of a CS there.

            Who are you buying for Shaw?

            Bamford is still an okay option.

        2. waldo666

          B

      14. POTATO
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 25 days ago

        Martinez (Forster)
        Digne Dallas Veltman* [Holding AWB]
        Salah Lingard Son Jota [Bruno]
        Bamford Kane [Iheanacho]
        1FT £0.1M

        At most I have 10 players for GW36 including a doubtful Veltman.

        Tempted to replace Holding with Phillips or a Leeds defender for free and leave it at that, though there is space for a one more mid/attacker.
        Don't have funds to replace Nacho using the FT unfortunately.

        1. POTATO
          • 1 Year
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Bruno > anyone worth a -4 hit?

          1. krawiecus
              6 months, 25 days ago

              I would replace Veltman if unfit, not Holding. And Bruno worth -4 if you're gonna downgrade (e.g. Raphinha) and put that many into Trent.

          2. waldo666
            • 11 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Yeah, Holding or Phillips to Dallas looks the way to go.

            1. waldo666
              • 11 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              Holding to Dallas I meant.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 25 days ago

          Pick 2 to bring in this week:
          A) Antonio
          B) Dallas
          C) Raphinha
          D) Ings

          1. No Kane No Gain

            AD

          2. krawiecus
              6 months, 25 days ago

              BC, potentially B/C+A if want to hedge your bets

          3. Kun, Ayew Nigerian?
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Made an early move for the first time this second half of the season because I feared Dallas will rise from no where!

            1. waldo666
              • 11 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              Fair call, he's predicted to rise today.

              1. Kun, Ayew Nigerian?
                • 6 Years
                6 months, 24 days ago

                ...andddddd, he rose!

            6 months, 25 days ago

            On a WC what's the best front 4-3 or 5-2 for GW 36. I think DCL and Antonio definite. Not sure about Kane vs Wolves

            1. waldo666
              • 11 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              Salah, Raphinha, Son, City mid if you think you can pick who starts.
              DCL, Antonio, Bamford

            Are people bringing in Dallas tonight or waiting for the pressers?

            • 11 Years
            6 months, 25 days ago

            Is Allison a good differential to replace Mendy (assuming Forster misses gw36)?
            Own Salah and Trent and not likely to get a 3rd liverpool player.

            not really keen on pickford, so maybe Meslier the other option.

            anyone else? money not an issue after downgrading Bruno

              pages moving fast but would appreciate some advice here.....tia

              • 9 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              Ederson is a better option tbh esp since Phillips is available at 4.1m, no point really getting Allison.

              Other alternatives include Pickford and Meslier.

            How’s everyone doing so far?

            86 pts with Salah(c) Bruno Shaw Greenwood Siggy Digne Martinez to go

              Would be going allot better had I gone went with BB as intended(22)! Leeds had been off the boil a bit of late and didn't look a great fixture for them on recent performances.

              82 atm, with Bruno (c), Greenwood, Salah, Shaw, TAA and Martinez to go.

            3. HammersXI
              • 9 Years
              6 months, 25 days ago

              122 points (benchboosted) with Bruno (c), Salah, Phillips, Trent and Konsa to go.

              Don’t think I’ll ever have such a gameweek ever again

              66 with Salah(c) Bruno Shaw Trent and El Ghazi to play
              absolute shocker and rank killer

              96 with Pickford, Taa, Shaw, siggy, dcl, Salah and Bruno cap to play. Annoying Mendy benching and Watkins red.

              Greenwood Capt
              Shaw
              Salah
              Trent
              Coleman

              Dallas and Wood quiet on the bench unfortunately. Should play them , not Kane and Bale

            Thinking Rashford (definitely) and possibly Iheanacho out.

            Which 2 replacements for these.
            1. Mahrez, Raphinha, Son.
            2. Aguero (if Raphinha), DCL, Antonio. (-4 worth it)?
            Raph + DCL possibly.

            Martinez.
            Dallas, TAA, Digne.
            Salah, Jota, *Rashford, Lingard.
            Watkins, *Iheanacho, Kane.
            Steer, Burn, Shaw, Greenwood.
