Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 3 round-up: Sunday’s goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Son Heung-min (£10.1m) and Mason Greenwood (£7.6m) both scored on Sunday, while Chris Wood (£6.9m) and Patrick Bamford (£7.9m) also found the back of the net to open their 2021/22 accounts.

However, it was a day to forget for those who handed Bruno Fernandes (£12.1m) the armband, as the Portuguese picked up a booking and returned just two Fantasy Premier League (FPL) points at Molineux.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on.

The graphics below are taken from LiveFPL, Ragabolly’s excellent and ever-expanding website, and our own Premium Members Area.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

KEY FPL TALKING POINTS

  • Son produced his second double-digit haul of the season against Watford, as his first-half free-kick made it three wins from three for Tottenham Hotspur. The South Korean international has now scored 10 goals, supplied seven assists and picked up 20 FPL bonus points in his last 19 home matches.
  • Following their 1-0 win, Spurs are yet to concede a goal this season. However, they have given up 31 shots – only Burnley (42), Arsenal (39) and Leicester City (32) have allowed more.
  • Harry Kane (£12.3m) made his return to Nuno Espirito Santo’s starting XI, but produced just one FPL point as he missed a couple of late openings on his first Premier League appearance of the season.
  • Daniel Bachmann (£4.5m) made seven saves in Gameweek 3, compared to just one across the opening two matches. Moussa Sissoko (£4.5m) also made his Watford debut, and as a result, hands FPL managers another budget midfielder to consider.
  • Wood and Bamford both found the back of the net at Turf Moor, their first goals of 2021/22.
  • Following today’s win, Manchester United are now unbeaten in their last 28 Premier League away matches (W18 D10), which is a new record for the longest unbeaten away run in English Football League history
  • Greenwood’s winner means that he has now scored three goals in as many games this season, and is three FPL points ahead of teammate Fernandes.
  • Paul Pogba (£7.7m) performed in a deeper midfield role at Molinuex today, which meant he only touched the ball once in Wolves’ penalty area and registered a single goal attempt.

INJURY WATCH

Sean Dyche made just one change to his Burnley starting XI, with Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) recovering from a toe injury to replace Jack Cork (£4.5m) in the Clarets engine room.

Diego Llorente (£4.5m) returned from injury for Leeds United, but Junior Firpo (£4.9m) and Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) were both missing with Covid.

For Wolves, Willy Boly (£4.9m) and Daniel Podence (£5.5m) returned as substitutes, while Edinson Cavani (£8.5m) arrived off the bench for Manchester United on 53 minutes, having been granted additional leave time on the back of his Copa America exploits. 

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 3

Following today’s matches, Wolves duo Adama Traoré (£6.0m) and Raúl Jiménez (£7.4m) both rank amongst the top five players for shots, with 12 each, over the opening three rounds.

The pair also feature amongst the division’s top chance creators, which does suggest that they could offer value from Gameweek 4 onwards, when their fixtures ease.

Traoré now trails only Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) for penalty area touches, with 27, a total he shares with Michail Antonio (£7.9m).

    Hoping Ronaldo comes in at 12m will be a simple 2 transfers

    Bruno + Ings --> Jota + Ronaldo

    0.1m short if he comes in 12.5m

      Simple, Bruno vs Ronaldo is not easy IMO

    I feel like I’m going mad. It’s like nobody has watched Ronaldo play since he left Real Madrid and are all just going on assumption and using past and faded figures to adjudge him by.
    Honestly where is this all coming from, is plain ignorance or just looking at his age and then working back from there?
    He is still rapid, not as lightning quick as he was 3 years ago but still bloody fast.
    He’s still the greatest header of a ball I’ve seen. His finishing is universal class. He plays pretty much as a 9 so will be properly forward. He’s got an incredible supply about to be behind him. He won the golden boot at the Euros and score 29 goals in 33 appearances last season. Last season was a few months ago by the way; not 5 years ago.

      great post, mate!

      Absolutely no doubt in my mind that he'll be gold. Everything crossed that he comes in at 12.5m or less.

        He's such a strong reason to wildcard (or take a -4 and lose a big hitter in midfield). We now have Ronaldo, Lukaku and arguably Kane to move to, so our team structure can support moving funds up top.

          Yeah I’m liking this now as it really messes up the template which I’m already bored by. My rank is still the same as game week 1.

        Cheers. Not that I should be convincing anyone.

          Please stop trying - let them think he is shite 😉

        I agree with this - I am hoping he is 12.5 (or less) and classed as a forward. If he is, I am wildcarding my team over the break because he will surely rise and then will be unaffordable and I have already been playing with my team to work out what it will be and how I will get him in, using Kane as the placeholder. The problem I will have is, my current team is scoring quite well (76 this week), so I will have to think carefully.

      calm yourself, pretty sure everyone is trying to figure out how to get him in............

        Not from a lot of what I’ve read on this very site.

          Just asking a question .. he’s played the majority of his career in poorer leagues than the prem, he’s isn’t getting any younger. I agree, tho I’m a Liverpool fan I still think that Ronny is the best footballer I’ve had the pleasure to watch in real life … am just a realist, careers come to an end eventually!

      Ronaldo (C) It will be similar to Leeds scoreline

        I think his addition will dramatically increase the goal tally at both ends. Sure he'll score a ton, but seeing Wolves tear though that Fredba midfield every time a United attack broke down made me realise attacks will break down with greater frequency with Ronaldo there, and other sides will have better finishers. It's curtains for Shaw in my team.

        1. OLEgend
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 24 days ago

          But the addition of Varane is giving me confidence,and it's a home match so Newcastle won't commit much players forward is what iam thinking. Perfect fixture for a Ronaldo(C) for me

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 24 days ago

            Varane is great obviously, but even the best need help.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Whereas this however I completely agree with.

    4. mynameisq

      Its not Ronaldo I worry about, it's a Fred +1 midfield

      Look what wolves did to utd yesterday and that's without Ronaldo (who as elite as he is won't be tracking back much)

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        Would that not be more real life related?

        It's McTominay they miss - need a bit more resilience in the engine room...

    5. Cheeto__Bandito
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      odd thing to be feeling considering every active manager is trying to find a way to get him in...

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 24 days ago

        It’s a reaction to countless posts I’ve seen to the contrary. So not every active manager will be trying to get him in.

    6. doher.ty
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 24 days ago

      They are trying to convince themselves that they 'don't need him'. Saying silly things like he is going to be an impact sub, on that money... crazy.

    7. I Member

      So what? Get him in if you feel so strongly about it. Why worry about what others are doing?

        1 month, 24 days ago

        I've been plotting my path forward over the next couple of months, and everything is a darn sight easier if I just ignore him (and United players as a whole).

    Those who are not wc'ing, when you are planning to do?

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 24 days ago

      Around 7 still, I had a bad week this week but once I calmed down I realised it wasn't even that bad and the only difference was I didn't cap Antonio. Will reassess closer to gw deadline would drive myself crazy if I started tinkering now, too many things will happen between now and next gw in terms of internationals, signings, injuries covid etc

    2. drughi

      gw 5 or 7

      As late as possible at this stage, a couple of hits will sort the Ronnie issue

      On WC, have i got this right in terms of who will have double price rises this week?

      Likely:
      Antonio (already up 0.1)
      Torres (already up 0.1)
      Alonso (already up 0.1)
      Greenwood
      Gray

      Maybe:
      Lukaku
      Lloris
      Duffy
      Jesus

      Any others/have i got any of the above wrong?

        TAA, tsimikas, Dier, white, Amartey
        Benrhama, Fernandes, Salah, Greenwood gilmour
        Wilson Ings Antonio
        Should I do
        A)tsimikas to coady
        B) take hit on tsimikas price and do Fernandes and Ings to ronaldo and jota for -4
        C) do all free for -8 but will save .1 from price drop
