Scoreboard

FPL Gameweek 7 round-up: Sunday’s goals, assists, bonus and injuries

Kelechi Iheanacho (£7.0m) scored on his return to Leicester City’s starting XI, as Son Heung-min (£10.0m) registered his third double-digit haul of the season in a much-needed victory for Tottenham Hotspur.

Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) inspired Brentford continued their impressive start, while Mohamed Salah (£12.6m) strengthened his perma-captain status with a goal, assist and maximum bonus.

However, it was a day to forget for those who handed Michail Antonio (£8.0m) the armband, as the Jamaican forward returned just two Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Points.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of today’s games but in the meantime, our long-dormant 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

FPL TAKEAWAYS

  • On his first Premier League start of the season, 2020/21 Fantasy favourite Kelechi Iheanacho bagged a goal, maximum bonus and nine FPL points. The Nigerian international registered 12 Premier League goals and two assists in just 1452 minutes last term. As a result, he ranked top amongst all forwards per 90 minutes for goals and joint-fourth for expected goal involvement (xGI). Should he now nail down a spot in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI, he would instantly become an excellent option for our frontlines, ahead of games against Manchester United (h), Brentford (a) and Arsenal (h) after the international break.
  • As for Jamie Vardy (£10.4m), the veteran forward now tops the Premier League scoring charts having netted his sixth goal of the campaign at Selhurst Park. He has blanked in just two of his seven appearances in 2021/22, but despite that, has suffered a £0.1m price drop since the start of the season. Interestingly, Vardy touched the ball just 10 times against Crystal Palace this afternoon, compared to the more involved Iheanacho (32), who regularly dropped deeper to link play in Brendan Rodgers’ 4-2-3-1 formation.
  • Following today’s 2-2 draw, Patrick Vieira’s Eagles remain unbeaten at home, despite a testing run which has included games against Brentford, Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton and Hove Albion, and of course, Leicester City. The 8.3% owned Conor Gallagher (£5.7m) failed to return but attempted four shots, while Michail Olise (£5.4m) arrived off the bench and scored his first Premier League goal within nine minutes of coming on. He also took on a share of set-pieces. 
  • Son Heung-min’s third double-digit haul of the season – via two assists and two bonus points – ensured a big win for Nuno Espirito Santo and Tottenham Hotspur against Aston Villa. The South Korean international was the most advanced Spurs’ player on the day, and was a little unfortunate not to score, as he racked up five goal attempts, three shots in the box and 10 penalty box touches.
  • As for their opponents, Aston Villa, Dean Smith lined his troops up in a 3-5-2 / 5-3-2 formation for the fourth-successive Premier League match. Despite a disappointing loss, there were positives, as differential Ollie Watkins (£7.3m) opened his 2021/22 account. The dynamic between the England international and Danny Ings (£7.9m) is one to keep an eye on ahead of Gameweek 11, when Villa take on Southampton (a), Brighton (h) and Crystal Palace (a). Today, Watkins was the more advanced, and led his team-mate for goal attempts and shots in the box.
  • A dramatic late winner by Yoane Wissa (£5.9m) – his second goal in just 20 minutes of pitch time during the last two Gameweeks – at the London Stadium means that Brentford are now up to 7th in the Premier League table. Bryan Mbeumo was also on the scoresheet, but could have had more, having missed a couple of good early chances for the Bees’. Given that he has hit the woodwork a massive four times already this season, owners may still feel a little short-changed. Next up for Brentford is a testing encounter with Chelsea (h), before an appealing run of fixtures between Gameweeks 9 and 16, when their assets will surely be subject to huge interest.
  • Michail Antonio served up just his second blank of the season on Sunday, as Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) scored West Ham’s only goal of the game against Brentford. For Bowen, it was his third attacking return since Gameweek 5, and as a result, he has now outscored his more popular team-mate – Said Benrahma (£6.6m) – by 17 FPL points to 15 during that time.
  • An entertaining clash between Liverpool and Man City at Anfield ended in a 2-2 draw, with Mohamed Salah delivering yet another double-digit haul via a goal,  assist and maximum bonus. The Egyptian is the top-scoring player in FPL with a whopping 70 points, at least 21 more than any other player. Team-mate Sadio Mane (£11.9m) was also on the scoresheet, with his fourth goal in his last six Premier League appearances.
  • For Pep Guardiola’s side, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) and Phil Foden (£7.9m) both scored and are intriguing differentials ahead of Burnley (h), Brighton (a) and Crystal Palace (h). The Belgian attempted four shots in the box in Gameweek 7, with Foden registering two, while they both shared corner-taking duties with Jack Grealish (£8.0m).

Manchester City’s average position map v Liverpool in Gameweek 7

INJURY WATCH

Despite receiving lengthy treatment during the second-half at Selhurst Park, Jamie Vardy recovered and saw out the game.

However, Brentford weren’t quite so fortunate. 

The Bees’ lost Kristoffer Ajer (£4.5m) to a hamstring injury during the week, while Vitaly Janelt (£5.0m) took a knock (thigh) during the warm up and missed out despite being named in the starting XI.

Things then got worse as Shandon Baptiste (£5.0m) was forced off with a suspected dislocated shoulder in the first-half.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 7

The 5.1% owned Harry Kane (£12.1m) ended Gameweek 7 with six shots, a total no other player could improve upon. Despite that, the England captain blanked again, those his performance was more encouraging ahead of his team’s trip to Newcastle United after the international break.

Kevin De Bruyne also features highly, as does Said Benrahma, though only one of the latter’s five attempts arrived inside the penalty box.

Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) was this week’s biggest non-pen xG underachiever, with a -0.77 total

Son Heung-min also appears on the list, along with team-mates Kane and Giovani Lo Celso (£5.9m).

    was set on wildcarding this week but now I'm not so sure I need to. thoughts?

    Foster

    Semedo / Alonso / White

    Salah / Raphinha / Smith-Rowe / Sarr

    Jimenez / Ronaldo / Antonio

    Bachmann / TAA / Bissouma / Livramento

      How many changes to that team would you realistically change with a wildcard? Think a couple of changes over the next few game weeks and you'd be there anyway.....

    For next gw bench 1
    A) Toney(che(h))
    B) Gallagher (Ars(a))
    C) Livra (lee(h))

    1. jon.terry.tfh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      B. Toney is on pen, and brentford scored 3 against liverpool at home. Livra has looked very threatening when he join the attack and could certainly threaten Leed's leaky defence.

        Thanks have rudiger too. U would play both rudiger and toney right?

  3. EL tridente
    • 3 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Which combo:
    A) Foden and Cancelo
    B) Son and 4.6 defender

    1. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…

      A

    2. kUwe Inc.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      B with Ars defender

      rotation risk on A

    3. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years

      A rotation risk
      I'd go B

    Bottomed

    Have a strangely decent week despite having no goalscorer other than Salah. currently at 49k but is 35 points off from the ML leader who sit at top 500 atm. What is the best "differential" strategy to make up some ground? We basically own the same template WC team.

    1. Captain Son @ newcastle away
    2. Antonio --> Armstrong to capture the strong run of fixtures or Hwang(double wolves attack)

    Any other brave differential strategy for GW8 is welcome!

    Appreciate your help and advice as usual!

    1. Kryptonite666

      Son is a good shout. De Bruyne against Burnley if you want to YOLO

    Need some help with this team with 2 consecutive red arrows

    Sanchez
    TAA Cancelo Rudiger Marcal (Liv)
    Salah Sarr Saka Gray (Mendy)
    Ronaldo Lukaku (Perica)

    A. CR7 to Antonio and Perica to Vardy for a -4
    B. CR7 to Antonio and Sarr to Son for a -4. Will allow Perica to Toney the following week.
    C. Roll transfer and do a mini wild card next week

    Any thoughts?

    1. corderz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      C - looks a decent side to me and Ron could do damage against Leicester

  7. corderz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Who would you prioritise transferring out this week?

    A) Sarr
    B) Traore

    1. kempc23
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Traore by a mile. He is absolutely useless.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Traooooore whooaaahooaahhh.

    3. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Traore by a countrymile. He has to go. I am 2nd benching him this week and next week he is gone

    4. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      I will do Traore/Gilmour to Saka/Raphinha(regardless of travel issues)

  8. Puntillimon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Anyone knows what’s LMS Safety score? Bang average this week on 38

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years

      33

    2. Puntillimon

  9. kempc23
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Im doing Ron to (R)om this week. I can then also do, for -4:

    A) Jota to Son
    B) Semedo to Cancelo

    Thoughts?

    1. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      B

      1. kempc23
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        16 days, 8 hours ago

        I can actually do the Cancelo move without a hit too.

        1. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
          • 4 Years
          16 days, 8 hours ago

          Then that would be preferable

  10. YoungPretender
    • 6 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Ronaldo & Traore > Toney & Son/KDB/Foden (-4)

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Foden -4 for the entertainment it will provide.

  11. ebb2sparky
    • 10 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Are either gray or Townsend likely to start once both richarlison and DCL are back? Had Townsend for a few weeks but currently on my WC so trying to think a bit longer term

    1. tommo-uk-
      • 9 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Rondon will be replaced by DCL and then its a question of who drops out for Richarlison i guess....however both Gray & Townsend have been playing brilliant this season and cant see either of those being dumped out of the team straight away.

  12. tommo-uk-
    • 9 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Which WC Draft would you go with:

    WC Draft A:

    Ramsdale Foster
    Rudiger White Cancelo TAA Manquillo
    Salah Doucoure Raphinha Mount Smith Rowe
    Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

    WC Draft B:

    Ramsdale Foster
    Rudiger Cancelo DIAS White Manquillo
    Salah TOWNSEND Raphinha FODEN Mount
    Lukaku TONEY Jimenez

    Im leaning towards B, TAA funds allows that upgrade in Midfield to Foden. Only downside is losing Antonio but West Ham seem a bit out of sorts at the moment.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Too much money on the bench with both of those drafts imo.

      Having to rotate those attackers is a nightmare.

    2. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
      • 4 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Would not get 8 attackers for a start.

    3. ebb2sparky
      • 10 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      I prefer A since it includes TAA and removes pep roulette in midfield. Personally I’d go for a more obvious bench player in my front 8

  13. No Professionals
    • 4 Years
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    struggling since my WC (was unnecessary, serves me right).

    early thoughts on GW8...

    Sanchez
    Rudiger James White
    Salah(c) Jota Raphinha Sarr Gray
    Ronaldo Lukaku

    Steele Livramento Marcal Scarlett
    1FT 0.6m

    A) Jota & Marcal to ESR and Cancelo
    B) Jota to Foden
    C) Hold

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      Jota to someone who plays.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      I'm looking to get Jota on WC haha.

      Keep him. This might even be a roll FT so you can sell Ronaldo in GW9 and use the money right away.

      1. No Professionals
        • 4 Years
        16 days, 8 hours ago

        yeah a hold (barring any international injuries) looks sensible as I have 2 subs with decent fixtures this week to cover Jota and James.

  14. Thanos
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Do you reckon Christensen still starts for Chelsea?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      He didn't over the weekend so rotation beckons.

      1. Thanos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        16 days, 8 hours ago

        Yeah, just got him in this weekend for his beautiful zero points and now hate to waste another transfer on him!

        1. tokara
          • 7 Years
          16 days, 8 hours ago

          no CS for Chelsea anyway

        2. HIAFL (Howe to Train your D…
          • 4 Years

          He may start next gw. Silva is with brasil

      I have gone Rudiger + Christensen. Will put them both in my 11 every week.

    3. Jafalad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Should start 4 out of every 5 games acc to Jonty.

  15. Pepeye
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Foden & Bernardo nailed on now post IB

  16. Karan14

    Sanchez
    TAA James Marcal
    Salah Raphinha Saka Gray
    Ronaldo Antonio Toney

    (4.0 Livramento Semedo Sissoko)
    1 FT & 3.2m

    Definitely doing Marcal ➡️ Cancelo for free.

    If James is still injured or Raphinha isn't starting worth taking a hit for Semedo to Dias/Chilly/Azpi/Rudi?

  17. We Go Again

    Ronaldo + Scarlett -> Jimenez + Antonio for 2 FT? Was playing 442 until now

  18. boc610

    16 days, 8 hours ago

    Mo's celebration was interesting yesterday. I think that's a man who doesn't feel appreciated for all he does (this goes for former players pundits, and even some pool fans. Debates still rage on whats app groups about how good he is) Records broken season after season and to my amazement I still think he is underrated in general. it seems incredible to say that but for some reason I think that's the reality.

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      16 days, 8 hours ago

      I think it’s because of a couple of frustrating seasons from him, 18/19 and 19/20. Despite his goals, I remember he used to constantly lose possession, selfish and not passing, wasteful in front of goal. But he’s no longer that player. He’s unselfish and clinical now.

      1. boc610
        • 9 Years
        16 days, 8 hours ago

        Wasteful maybe -he isnt even a striker by the way- yet still unbelievably prolific yet people seemed to ignore that. I think the criticism he get its disproportionate to the levels other players like mane and firmino get when they are completely off form. they were both by their standards dreadful last season and nothing really came their way (from my experience as a pool fan anyway interacting with other fans)other than 'its a slump and they will get out of it soon '(bobby still hasn't imo). But if Mo had a season they had -and he hasn't in his pool career-they would have been calling for his head and saying sell him now.

        1. Cok3y5murf
          • 5 Years
          16 days, 7 hours ago

          Yeah, I get that. Even FIFA disrespected him. They downgraded Salah from 90-rated to 89 after last season and Mane somehow is also 89 😆

    Which Keeper combo is best to own (either 2x £4.5m or £5m + Foster)

    current thoughts are Ramsdale & Sanchez

    This feels…weird.
