Brentford injury latest as budget FPL midfielder Mbeumo impresses

We continue our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 7 write-ups with analysis of West Ham United v Brentford.

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

WEST HAM UNITED 1-2 BRENTFORD

  • Goals: Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) | Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m), Yoane Wissa (£5.9m)
  • Assists: Tomas Soucek (£5.9m) | Sergi Canos (£5.5m), Pontus Jansson (£4.6m)
  • Bonus: Soucek x3, Wissa x2, Mbeumo x1

MBEUMO ON TARGET

The ‘out of position’ Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) impressed again on Sunday, as the differential midfielder netted his second goal since Gameweek 5.

However, owners were perhaps unfortunate not to receive more than eight FPL points, as he missed a couple of early chances, including a strike which hit the bar. 

Incredibly, it was the fourth time he has hit the woodwork this season (see below). For context, Harry Kane (£12.1m) led the way with eight across the entire 2020/21 campaign. 

Mbeumo ended the match with four goal attempts, two shots in the box and 0.79 expected goals (xG), a total which comfortably trumped Ivan Toney’s (£6.3m) 0.08.

For the second Gameweek in a row, Yoane Wissa (£5.9m) arrived off the bench and grabbed a goal in the final stages of the game. The £8.5m summer signing from Lorient is still yet to start a Premier League match, but is certainly staking a claim for a place in Thomas Frank’s XI.

Elsewhere, Pontus Jansson (£4.6m) bagged his third assist of the season, and has now provided either an attacking return or clean sheet in six of his seven Premier League appearances.

With 12 points from five games, Brentford have had an excellent start to the season, and following their Gameweek 8 matchup against Chelsea, embark on a kind run which will surely see huge Fantasy interest in the likes of Mbeumo and Toney.

BEES INJURY LATEST

Kristoffer Ajer (£4.5m) was ruled out on Sunday with a hamstring injury, and as a result, will miss Norway’s forthcoming World Cup qualifiers during the international break. However, he is expected to be available for Gameweek 8.

Vitaly Janelt (£5.0m) picked up a minor thigh injury during the warm-up and dropped out, while Shandon Baptiste (£5.0m) was replaced on 29 minutes with a dislocated shoulder.

Discussing the disruptions caused by injury, Thomas Frank said:

“I think it’s an even bigger result, we all know we have the lowest budget [in the league]. I am very satisfied with my squad but of course, we don’t have maybe as much quality or as much experience especially, but players are just ready to step in, missing three key players today. The ones who stepped in – Zanka, Mathias and Frank – so very pleased with that and got that win in the end, which you know maybe a draw could have been a deserved one but we definitely, in even games, you can nick it in the end and we did that today. There were three other games earlier this season where we should have won but we didn’t, but so pleased with the mentality.”

BOWEN CONTINUES FINE FORM

A late Jarrod Bowen (£6.3m) goal means that the 24-year-old has now provided an attacking return in each of the last three Gameweeks. During that time, he has netted a goal, supplied two assists and outscored his more popular team-mate Said Benrahma (£6.6m) by 17 FPL points to 15.

Opening up the comparison across the opening seven Gameweeks reveals that Bowen has produced better underlying numbers in several key metrics, too, including shots in the box, big chances and expected goal involvement (xGI).

Jarrod Bowen v Said Benrahma key attacking statistics summary 2021/22

As for Michail Antonio (£8.0m), the highest-scoring forward in the game blanked for just the second time this season. However, owners will surely hold given his impressive start to the season, though the fixtures for West Ham aren’t straightforward:

Tomas Soucek (£5.9m) grabbed a rather fortunate assist, though manager David Moyes’ did suggest in his post-match interview that the Czech international is struggling to find his best form this season:

“Tomas has not quite got on the end of things as well and things have not fallen for him. He scored last week but it was chalked out at Leeds. 

I think he is fighting for a wee bit of his best form. Is it to do with Declan getting forward a bit more? Well I am hoping the two of them, can get goals and gives us two goalscoring midfield players but I think Tomas has struggled a wee bit.”


West Ham XI: Fabianski, Coufal, Zouma, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Soucek, Rice, Bowen, Benrahma, Fornals, Antonio

Brentford XI: Raya, Zanka, Jansson, Pinnock, Canos, Baptiste (Jensen 29), Norgaard, Onyeka (Bidstrup 81), Henry, Mbeumo (Wissa 82), Toney

      • pingissimus
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        B and D but I'd expect first bencha nbd quite possibly second bench to play

        (Can't see any way that Raph plays myself apart from a possible cameo - prefer to take the word of Tuchel over the YEP on what to do with Brazil players)

        1. The Strokes
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I agree that's why I'm thinking of going Livra and Raph as I don't see Raph having loads of game time and I don't really want his substitute points while having a strong bench this GW.

          1. pingissimus
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Logical enough imo

            I currently have Raph benched.

    3. Ibralicious

      Had to make an early FT to catch the Cancelo rise. How am I looking, lads?

      Sanchez
      TAA - Cancelo - Rüdiger - White
      Salah - Raphinha - Saka - Gray
      Ronaldo - Lukaku

      (Steele - Livramento - McArthur - Scarlett) - 0 FT - TV 101.6

      Cheers!

          My back lines the same except I have Duffy instead of White, but I have Ramsdale in goal

        • FantasyClub
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I got Vardy in CR7 with the intention to bring Ronaldo back in for Vardy when Man Utds fixtures turn. I’ll be monitoring CR7 closely though, I’m not gonna just bring him back if things aren’t looking better at Man U

            Looks fine, even with the Scarlett Witch.

          Honestly speaking - WC, a hit or just a FT to remove Greenwood?

          Sanchez/Steele
          TAA/Cancelo/Rudi/Duffy/Tsim
          Salah/Greenwood/Benrahma/Raphinha/Sarr
          Ronaldo/Antonio/Scarlet

          1. The Knights Template

        • sovietrockettes
          • 2 Years

          Anyone tempted to captain De Bruyne on WC for the annual Burnley drubbing?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 2 Years

            Salah WAT

            1. Jebiga
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              First game naaah, also watford will beat them as usually

              1. FOO FIGHTER
                • 2 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Over 60% owned and his EO will be through the roof.

          2. Jebiga
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Grealish

          3. tuvok

            I'm tempted to bring him in for sure. I don't think I could captain when Salah is in such incredible form and is against Watford. But KDB's ownership will be so low he will be a serious differential. In the false 9 system he's going to get forward a lot too. It's just hard to fit him in, it means going 'threemium' as Lukaku and Salah are essential I think

          4. Mr Ozil
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Salah for me

          5. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years

            Would if I owned him. Rank-riser that move.

            1. The Knights Template
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              1.9% owned.

          6. The Strokes
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Doubt he will do better than Salah or Lukak (if Mount and James come back)

        • The Strokes
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Just a FT but I would remove Tsim or Sarr

          1. Atimis
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Can’t look at Greenwood anymore tbh

        • Redhawk
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Is Christiansen a viable route into the Chelsea backline? Obviously not nailed but budget friendly, and assuming a playing bench sub, would you consider?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yep (owner who got Livra's 4pts).

          Any thoughts on this wildcard draft?

          Sanchez, Foster
          TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger, White, Livramento
          Salah, Foden, Grealish, Raphinha, Mbeumo
          Lukaku, Armstrong, Hwang

          Going for the risky City triple for the next three fixtures, in the hope that the rest of my squad can handle it if it backfires - high risk, high reward.

          1. timPgoodwin
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Nice, That front line feels a little light but you can switch between 4-4-2, 3-5-2 and 3-4-3 dependent on fixtures, which I like.

            Has Pep said something that makes people think Foden is a regular?

            1. The Knights Template
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              What would Pep saying anything matter?

              1. timPgoodwin
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Because if he didn't say something that illuded to Foden being a regular then I'd be reluctant to get him. Just not seen many WC's with him in so wondered if something had happened/been said.

                1. The Knights Template
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Oh dear.

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Foden's form meant he finished last season as first choice on the left, ousting Sterling. He's in good form again, so there's every chance that spot is his again for now?

              1. timPgoodwin
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Wish we had a midweek game to give us some clues lol

            3. DantheManinaPan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Foden is a gamble. He played very well at the weekend and so I'm hoping that he gets plenty of minutes but I can't say anything about how likely that actually is.

              The front line is a slight concern, but as you say with White and Mbeumo available, I don't have to play them both every week. That said, I think both Armstrong and Hwang will both present very good value over the next few weeks, even if they don't match more expensive options in raw points.

          2. The Knights Template
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Best of luck with the triple up. I think it's the weak forward line that might trip you up.

          3. Mr Ozil
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Antonio's ownership is really high it might hurt.

            I'd do Grealish + Hwang > Gray/Gallagher + Antonio perhaps

            1. DantheManinaPan
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Valid point, but West Ham's fixtures really aren't that great over the next few. Wouldn't be surprised if he did well, but would be surprised if he did *very* well.

          4. Camzy
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Different. I quite like it.

            Don't like the City double up in attack though. Would rather double in defense + pick one of Foden/Grealish.

            I also much prefer Ramsdale + Duffy over Sanchez + White. The combo is cheaper, Ramsdale makes more saves, Duffy has more goal threat.

          5. El Presidente
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I fall for the City twice this season and no more. First got Mahrez with an impressive pre season, one bad game and out. Then I went for Torres, impressive display playing that 9 role, one bad game and out.

            Unless one of them goes crazy, City defense for me is enough.

                I could put someone like Jimi as a placeholder for next week but don't like to plan transfers.

              Difficult to finalise that spot

              Foden rested for the break surely is a positive

        • tommo-uk-

            Could you not do Trent, Hwang, and a better mid than Luiz? One of the Everton mids?

            1. Jinswick
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Yup, 6.7m available, e.g. Saka.

              Would be leaving quite a lot on the bench most weeks though

              1. Boly Would
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                Saka not a bad shout. I'd be happy with a bit more on the bench at the moment.

        • Camzy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          WC Draft 3.

          This is as safe as I think I'm probably gonna go.

          Ramsdale Foster
          TAA Cancelo Chilwell Duffy Livramento
          Salah Son Raphinha Townsend Brownhill
          Lukaku Antonio Toney

          0.1m short of Chilwell > Rudiger which would have been safer by a tiny bit.

          1. Babit1967
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Looks good, would prefer Rudiger/ Azpi to Chilwell tho and something like Antonio to Jiminez

          2. El Presidente
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            You can go Dias instead of Cancelo and get Rudiger

            1. Camzy
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              I can't. Cancelo and Dias are the same price (SV) since I grabbed the first Cancelo rise earlier this week.

              There's no easy way except maybe Duffy > Manquillo but I don't like that move. I think Duffy is worth the 0.3m.

          3. tommo-uk-
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            You could even downgrade Duffy to Manquillo to get the cash for Rudiger. Plenty of options.

            1. Camzy
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              That is the only way I see and I don't think it's worth it. I really rate Duffy as an FPL pick. Every match he looks like he could score and Brighton defense is good too.

          4. FCSB
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I guess Son restricts your spending a little… looks good thought I just don’t like Spurs assets and Newcastle are their bogey team

            1. Camzy
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Buying early before everyone jumps on for their run in GW12.

                • 5 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                It is a nice run… and he’s a good differential (for now)

          5. VIVA_RONALDO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Nice team. I'm 1.5mil short of that

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Almost identical to the squad I'll have in 2 transfers.

          6. Konstaapeli
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Have the same draft but with Rudiger & Manquillo instead Chilly & Duffy.

        • tommo-uk-
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Team A or Team B

          A)
          Ederson Foster
          Rudiger Cancelo TAA Manquillo Livramento
          Salah Raphinha Foden Doucoure Douglas Luiz
          Lukaku Toney Jimenez

          B)
          Mendy Foster
          Rudiger Cancelo Dias TAA Livramento
          Salah Raphinha Foden Doucoure Douglas Luiz

          1. tommo-uk-
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Essentially the differences are;

            Team A) Ederson Manquillo Jimenez

            Team B) Mendy Dias Scarlett

        • FCSB
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Ramsdale 4.0
          TAA Cancelo Rudiger Duffy Livramento
          Salah Foden Raphinha Mbeumo Allan
          Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

          On the topic of hacking/phishing:

          I’ve received an email from ‘no-reply@coinbase.com’ with an email verification link for Coinbase Pro.

          Having googled the company it is for buying and selling cryptocurrency.

          I have never dealt with this so should I be concerned?

          Usually can tell it’s fake by the sender address but this one looks legit…

            If you've never used Coinbase then definitely don't trust it.

                • 11 Years

                Yes. But if you didn't instigate the email verification, don't follow it.

        • pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          City have 5 matches in 15 days after the IB - how many do people rationally expect Cancelo to start?

          1. Boly Would
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Could miss the midweek EFL cup game?

            1. pingissimus
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              That must be the hope. Can't see him starting the lot anyway.

              Awkwardly the other most likely miss I see is Burnley. Pep does have form for rotating when he comes up against a minnow. I suppose the good news is that Portugal have a fairly light schedule over IB with Qatar and Luxrmbourg and he may miss one of those.

              1. Andy_Social
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 28 days ago

                It will depend on when Zinchenko is fit again. Once he is, he'll want to get an easy game or two in his legs.

                1. pingissimus
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Yep I guess this is factor X - there's not exactly a whole heap of cover right now unless he redeploys Laporte on the left as he did once or twice last season.

                  Very much want to bring Cancelo in but looking at the history of his benchings makes me nervous. There's another two matches in a week following this as well.

          1 FT, 0.7 ITB.

          1) No need to WC, right?
          2) Most pressing concern? Alonso/Jota/TAA?

          Wat (a)
          Man U (a)
          Brighton (h)
          W.Ham (a)
          Arsenal (h)

          Can see them conceding in 2/3 of those

            Isn’t it his attacking threat we want him for as well though, corners etc? And predictable starts? Find that in another team with defensive stats near to or better than Liverpool’s, and risk managed.

          On the Fantasy Football Hub hack, from what I've read they had 70,000 subscribers at £20 each.

          So a peak £1.4 million turnover for the year.

          If that's right it really did need better security standards.

          Or am I missing something here?

          c. Coady > Cancelo for free 🙂

            Doucoure nailed, what happens to Townsend when DCL and Richa fit?

              He just plays on the wing, what do you expect?

                In a tough away game like last weekend where they might wanna play 3 midfield, it only leaves 3 spots up top aka DCL + Richa and Gray on wing

              He played in all matches even when dcl & rich were fit. He had only 1 game off the bench as iwobi started instead.
