Raphinha “expected back” in time for Gameweek 8 as Watford appoint Ranieri

We’ve two more Premier League fixtures to bring you up to speed with from Saturday: Leeds United v Watford and Burnley v Norwich City.

For a briefer summary of Saturday’s games click here, while the recap of Sunday’s four matches is available here.

LEEDS UNITED 1-0 WATFORD

  • Goal: Diego Llorente (£4.5m)
  • Assist: None
  • Bonus: Llorente x3, Junior Firpo (£4.8m) x2, Liam Cooper (£4.5m) x1

XISCO DEPARTS, RANIERI ARRIVES

Raphinha "expected back" in time for Gameweek 8 as Watford appoint Ranieri

You wouldn’t have got great odds on Watford to be the first Premier League team to change head coach this season and the kneejerking Hornets board have again lived up to their ruthless reputation by dispensing of Xisco Munoz, just seven games into the season.

The Spaniard’s dismissal came after Saturday’s limp defeat at Leeds, where they registered fewer shots on goal than any other team in Gameweek 7.

Replacing Munoz is Claudio Ranieri, the former Chelsea, Leicester City and Fulham manager.

We’ll have a full Scout Report on the veteran Italian on Tuesday, asking what it means for the likes of Ismaila Sarr (£6.3m).

SARR’S APPEAL ON THE WANE?

Raphinha "expected back" in time for Gameweek 8 as Watford appoint Ranieri 2

Watford’s appealing three-game stretch finished with a whimper against Leeds but despite Sarr blanking, the mid-price midfielder still managed to rack up 25 points from Gameweeks 5-7.

Ranieri will have to bring the fabled new manager bounce with him as the Hornets’ fixtures are about to turn very iffy indeed and Gameweek 8 Wildcarders would be forgiven for overlooking Sarr, despite the excellent value he has provided so far in 2021/22:

The Gameweek 5 win over Norwich is starting to look anomalous when we analyse Watford’s other attacking stats this season:

v Norwichin the other six Gameweeks combined
Big chances62
Expected goals2.463.30

Four of Sarr’s five big chances this season indeed came against the Canaries and it was lacklustre attacking displays against Newcastle and Leeds that helped see off Munoz.

There is one glimmer of hope for those retaining the Senegal international’s services: his biggest-ever Gameweek score came at home to Liverpool in 2019/20, when he plundered 19 points against the champions-elect.

RAPHINHA: WILL HE PLAY IN GAMEWEEK 8?

Raphinha "expected back" in time for Gameweek 8 as Watford appoint Ranieri 1

Raphinha (£6.5m) produced a first blank in three matches against Watford but he was the main dangerman again for the Whites, firing in another five shots to take his total to 13 attempts in the last three Gameweeks, a tally that no other FPL midfielder can better.

The question for existing and prospective owners now is: will he be available for Gameweek 8?

The Leeds winger is part of Brazil’s squad for their three World Cup qualifiers over the October international break, the last of which kicks off at 1.30am next Friday morning – that’s 37.5 hours before Leeds v Southampton gets underway at Elland Road.

The new quarantine rules mean that he will techinically be free to face Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops but the logistics of getting back to England in such a short space of time suggests that involvement against the Saints seems unlikely. However, the Yorkshire Evening Post report that Raphinha is expected to be available for selection.

‘Available’ and ‘starting’ are two very different beasts, of course, so much doubt lingers over whether he’ll be part of Marcelo Bielsa’s line-up a week on Saturday.

“It’s not common [for a flair player to work like that]. He’s a player that stands out. Due to standing out he does not demand privileges. All the opposite he takes on more obligations, even more so. That’s why he’s a player that’s valued so much by all of us due to his humility and his capacity of effort. [That’s] Not common when accompanied with that talent.” Bielsa on Raphinha, on Saturday

As for Leeds as a whole, the weekend win over Watford was a lot like last season in a nutshell: Stuart Dallas (£5.3m) was shooting at will, fit-again match-winner Diego Llorente (£4.5m) helped solidify the backline in open play, chances were spurned going forward and there were hairy moments defending set plays, including a Watford leveller that was disallowed for a foul on Liam Cooper (£4.5m).

It’s a small step forward after a so-so start and, unlike Watford, the Whites have plenty more decent fixtures ahead, streatching through to the beginning of December.

Dallas hobbled off on Saturday, meanwhile, but Bielsa said after full-time that it was too early for a prognosis on the Northern Ireland international.

Burnley 0-0 Norwich City

  • Bonus: Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) x3, Tim Krul (£4.5m) x2, Grant Hanley (£4.4m) x1

The minnows of Burnley played host to the whipping boys of Norwich City on Saturday, making them both seem defensively adequate.

The Gameweek 7 match at Turf Moor saw the previously porous Clarets and the Canaries pick up their first clean sheets of the season, which was more of an indictment of both sides’ attacks than it was a credit to their defences.

Norwich have looked a bit more solid in their last two matches, largely being successful in suffocating Everton last week (only succumbing to two defensive errors) and reducing Burnley to just one clear opening here – and even that didn’t result in a shot, with Dwight McNeil (£5.9m) unable to react when the ball fell his way at close range.

Owners of semi-popular bench fodder options Billy Gilmour (£4.5m) and Brandon Williams (£4.0m) weren’t able to enjoy the clean sheet points, however, with the former benched for the third time in four Gameweeks and the latter losing his place at left wing-back to Dimitris Giannoulis (£4.4m).

Latterly playing in Gilmour’s spot at the base of the Norwich midfield has been new signing Mathias Normann (£4.5m), who has impressed in his three outings. He is top among Daniel Farke’s squad for shots (all outside the box, admittedly) and chances created in that time, also assuming control at direct free-kick situations and on indirect set plays. He is a name to consider in the bargain-bin midfield pond, then, for those managers looking for an emergency substitute.

As for Burnley, who were without Ben Mee (£4.9m) and who lost Matej Vydra (£5.3m) thanks to minor injuries, they were sorely missing the spark of Maxwel Cornet (£6.0m), who would have been an intriguing differential for this fixture based on his eye-catching exploits so far.

A clean sheet against the Premier League basement club doesn’t convince us that they’re reliable picks at the back again just yet (four shut-outs in their previous 25 top-flight fixtures is a better gauge) but, as we discussed last week, pairing the likes of Matthew Lowton (£4.4m) with a budget Arsenal defender does give the following run of favourable fixtures right the way through to the end of the calendar year: CRY, sou, BRE, WAT, CRY, NEW, wol, new, SOU, WAT, lee, nor, WOL.


Burnley XI: Pope; Taylor, Collins, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Lennon (Gudmundsson 60); Vydra (Rodriguez 35), Wood (Barnes 80). 

Norwich City XI: Krul; Kabak, Hanley, Gibson; Aarons, Lees-Melou (Rupp 79), Norman, McLean, Giannoulis; Sargent (Idah 89), Pukki (Rashica 79).

    Would you do Sarr + Dennis > Smith-Rowe + Armstrong for a -4?

    2 FTs:

    Sarr to Saka is the first Im considering after Int break If TAA is back and there arent new injured players.

    Any other bright ideas, mates?

        My bad, changed Livra to a starter for next GW but forgot to delete from the bench.

    The next Template is being formed by the Talking Heads.#

    Bring in Ramsdale (aresnal have been gash overall but nevermind that), 2 chelsea defenders, 2 man citeh defenders,[Keep some lucre in case Trent keeps you awake at night if you've ditched him for the new turbo defence]

    keep rafinha. bin benrahma even though he's a decent player. Foden all of a sudden is essential along with golden balls Grealish [no Pep roulette concerns now then? Salah is a God [arguably correct], toss-up between ESR or Saka.Townsend all of a sudden in favour. Ditch Ronaldo {walking with a bell now that he has leprosy], stick with Lukaku even though he has scored bugger all. lob in Toney (guy was dogmeat a week or so ago} just in case. toss-up between Huang /Jimmmy/ ..Antonio out of fashion. blah blah blahh.

    Price rising lunacy fully in charge, seemingly

    7 gameweeks in and the concept is pretty TURgiD

        "I don't get it, why would a guy sitting on **** in the rankings change his team to what basically amounts to my team when I'm on 300k? It's either pretty good news next gw for me or a pants filler for someone not very far from here."

    Defences to target for returns over the 2 to 3 GW's WHU, WAT, NOR, NEW and UTD would be correct?

      How people don't take into consideration other factors such as european competitions is beyond me. Football isn't a straight line. Did you not see how smaller teams play after matches in Europe?

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 29 days ago

        A big reason I'm ditching Antonio on my WC. With Moyes really keen about Europe, think that's going to show in their league form sooner rather than later.

        1. Diddly Squat
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 29 days ago

          I think Wet Spam have had their moment . Can see Antonio and Benra fading badly.

        2. Dušan Citizen
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Agree and I was so close to ditch him, but I was afraid. And sooner or later, he will get injured with that rhytm.

          Might sell for Armstrong as his fixtures are great and with my rank of 707k I need some differential.

      yes, Watford has an awful run until GW16.

      Said it was Watford/Norwich definites pus may be one premiership side at the start of the season. Thought Brentford was the best, but have surprised everyone.

    Which one Everton player would you get out of Doucoure, Gray and Townsend?

    1. Diddly Squat
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Gray by a mile . As soon as dcl/rich are back Townsend will disappear

      1. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        No it's gonna be Gordon and Rondon.

      2. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Would be harsh on Townsend to disappear after 3 goals and 1 assist in the last 4 games!! No chance he’s will lose his place on current form!!

            He played when they both wiry fit before, it will be Rondon and Gordon who lose Their place IMO

      Gray.

      I have tripled up on Gray, Doucoure and DCL though.

    3. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      I did Sarr and Mendy to Townsend and Doucoure last night with the exact money but Gray would be the one I would go for if funds no concern!!!

      My wife and I started watching it years ago but she has a tendency to stop watching something and then not want to get back into it, Peaky Blinders met a similar fate. She now only really watches something if her mum suggests it despite the fact her TV taste is rubbish so I'm going to have to watch an episode a week on Saturdays before Match of the Day and after she's gone to bed, in the sole hour I have to myself

    1. Bam Saka Laca

      Good luck Steve

    2. BremerHB
      • 4 Years

      Probably for the best. Who knows what will happen with COVID/injuries over the international break. A lot of it could be irrelevant by next week! Plus a break every now and again from football is good. It's a long season.

      I'm on WC and apart from monitoring price rises on a couple of key players for my WC team, I'll also be waiting til next week before I start listening/watching the one or two channels I usually do.

      I only watch Sam and AZ when they answer mine thoughtful questions. Nothing else.

    How does this WC team look?

    Sanchez
    Taa-Rudiger-White-(Livremanto)-(Manquillo)
    Salah-son-Foden-Mbuemo-(Luiz).
    Antonio-Lukaku-Armstrong

    2 FTs:

    Sarr to Saka is the first Im considering after thr Int break If TAA is back and there arent new injured players.

    Any other bright ideas, mates?

    Ramsdale
    Trent* Rudiger Dias Livra
    Salah Raph Gray Sarr
    Ronaldo Lukaku

    Steele Marcal Sissoko Scarlett

  17. sirmorbach

    Too light on defence and midfield? Seriously considering the following:

    Ramsdale / Foster
    TAA / Cancelo / Rüdiger / Livramento / Manquillo
    Salah / Raphinha / ESR / Townsend / Luiz
    Lukaku / Vardy / Antonio

    Greenwood and Sarr -> Son and Mbuemo. So tempting, but have to wait until after the IB and then I’ll be priced out.

    On WC -

    A. DCL + Hwang + Cancelo

    Or

    B. Jimenez + Laporte + Raphinha

    Deary me. What a bunch of sheep play this game nowadays.

    Imagine selling Ronaldo already. 😀

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      1. Why is that bad?
      2. Why is that sheepy?

      Chelsea's fixtures took a turn from GW7 and I made the switch from Ronaldo to Lukaku. Not because anyone told me to

      1. Differentiator
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        the direct linking to certain youtube accounts making the switch and blind followers

        Selling Ronaldo now, in my view, is just wrong.

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Would be sheepish of me to follow your ways. Lukaku in!

    2. Gabistuta
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Sold him for Jimi last GW, 9pts to the good so far. Ironic calling people sheep on this site.

    Which are the best middle priced midfielders to have going forward?

    Raph, Gray+other Everton midfs, Saka+other Arsebwl midfs, Gallagher

    Anyone else?
    Brentford midfielder, would put JWP here if it wasnt for the red card

    1. Gabistuta
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      That's it really. Raph, Mbeumbo, Gray are the only ones for sure. Dallas is a great punt after watching the last game. Sarr I still like, see what Ranieri does.

    Thoughts on this draft?

    Ramsdale Foster

    TAA Alonso Cancelo Livra Duffy

    Salah Son Raph ESR Luiz

        1 month, 29 days ago

        Haha I guess it is

        Would I be better off downgrading one of my bench players and upgrading elsewhere?

    Can foden be the man to get me up the ranks ? Or stay clear of city attack ? Cheers

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Either could turn out to be true. Depends on your circumstances. On a WC I personally think it's worth the risk.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        On "mini WC" as have 2 fts 🙂

    2. Diddly Squat
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Stay clear . I fell for this last season . Foden had a fantastic game then was immediately dropped .

    3. Gabistuta
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Hard avoid. If you're set on it have a good bench option

  26. 03farmboy

    Which two defendeces to go for out of arsenal, Brighton and wolves??

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Definitely Brighton first

  27. thepancakeman123

    I put Alonso in this week only for him to be benched. Do I take him back out or keep him in?

    1. CrouchDown
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I would keep him

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years

      Keep

    3. Diddly Squat

      Keep

    4. Sun Jihai

      Wait for pressers

    Sarr ronaldo to KDB jesus worth -4?

    Basically targeting the pattern of man City beating Burnley 5.0 at home last few years..

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      kdb still a bit too punty imo but why not 🙂

      1. Rash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        He is but with me already burning my wild card I'm thinking of getting a bit punty rather than chasing the template with all the wildcards this gameweek.

    2. thepancakeman123
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      There is definite logic to this lol. I did this last year and De Bruyne rewarded me with 14 points, I just hate how expensive he is now, would rather Grealish or Foden long term

    3. Diddly Squat
      • 1 Year

      Without a doubt

    City lineup vs BUR

    Carson
    Zinc Stones Ake Cancelo
    De Bruyne Rodri Silva
    Mahrez Torres Foden

    Thoughts?
