Moving Target

Digne’s FPL potential evident in Aston Villa debut

Aston Villa completed the signing of Lucas Digne (£5.0m) last week, in a deal worth a reported £25m plus add-ons.

The attack-minded left-back endured a successful spell at former club Everton, where he produced four Premier League goals and 22 assists across the previous three seasons, but was facing an uncertain future due to a fallout with Rafael Benitez.

Now at Villa Park, Digne’s move could prove fruitful for both attacking and defensive returns in Fantasy Premier League (FPL), which we’ll explore below, in this, our latest Moving Target report.

EVERTON

Digne’s FPL potential evident in Aston Villa debut 2

28-year-old Digne signed for Everton from Barcelona ahead of the 2018/19 campaign and has since been one of the best players in his position in the Premier League.

As one of his team’s main creators, his tally of 22 FPL assists across the last three seasons puts him behind only Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.4m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) amongst all defenders, whilst his 0.14 expected assists (xA) per 90 minutes under Carlo Ancelotti in 2020/21 was the sixth-highest rate.

However, he has failed to produce a single attacking return this term. Benitez’s defensive demands will have to take much of the blame, with Digne’s attacking output suffering as a result.

“The manager asked me to be more of a defender this season, to stay back a bit more and keep a better balance for the team. Then, sometimes, I can drive forwards, but only when it is right for the team. My first job is to defend, I am a left-back. If what you are being asked to do is for the good of the team, that is it, the end of the discussion. You do the job the manager wants.” – Digne on his role under Benitez

ASTON VILLA

Digne’s FPL potential evident in Aston Villa debut

Digne became the second player through the door for Villa in this January transfer window, following the loan signing of Philippe Coutinho (£7.0m) from Barcelona.

And whilst the Brazilian stole the headlines against Manchester United in Double Gameweek 22, with a goalscoring appearance off the bench, Digne also caught the eye on his Villa debut.

DIGNE’S FIRST-MATCH – SCOUT REPORT

Immediately installed at left-back, Digne served up a zero-pointer against Manchester United on Saturday evening, thanks to his concession of two goals and a yellow card.

However, he was very advanced up the Villa left flank, registering 25 final-third touches (the second-most of Villa players), two shots in the box and two chances created, and was also involved at set-piece situations.

It’s also worth noting Digne’s touch heatmap, which further emphasises his prominent role at the business end of the pitch:

Above: Lucas Digne’s touch heatmap v Manchester United in Double Gameweek 22

All-in-all, it was a bright start for Villa’s new full-back, as he crossed well into United’s box and almost got on the scoresheet himself, as he fired a decent effort at David de Gea (£5.2m) in the second half.

He cramped up towards the end but provided a good attacking outlet throughout, which bodes well for his prospects in the coming weeks.

THE PROSPECTS

Though often portrayed as a 4-3-3 formation, Gerrard’s Villa have really been playing a 4-3-2-1 since his arrival, as the wide forwards are more no. 10s than traditional wingers.

As a result, the full-backs are tasked with offering the width in the final third, which should suit Digne, who specialises in overlapping runs and crosses.

His relationship with those ahead of him down his flank will be key, then, and you can certainly see him thriving with Coutinho, who will look to drift infield and create space, plus Jacob Ramsey (£4.6m), who is more than capable of covering the Frenchman’s attacking forays.

So, Digne carries plenty of threat going forward, but what about his clean sheet potential?

From Gameweek 12 onwards – Gerrard’s first match in charge – Villa have kept two clean sheets across their nine Premier League fixtures, conceding 12 goals, though three of them were penalties. That isn’t anything to write home about, but the strength of opposition should of course be factored in, with the Villans having faced Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City during that time.

The next run of games, however, gives Villa a real opportunity to build some momentum, as they sit top of our Season Ticker for ease of fixture right through until Gameweek 28. There is also potential for a Double Gameweek to be added into the mix, perhaps as soon as Gameweek 23, with postponed ties against Leeds United (a) and Burnley (h) still to be rearranged.

At this stage, we should highlight the threat posed by Matt Targett (£4.7m), Villa’s ‘other’ left-back, who will offer competition for a starting spot. However, it’s clear Digne is a significant upgrade on the former Southampton man, who has struggled at times this season with several below-par performances.

Meanwhile, we also shouldn’t completely write off right-back Matty Cash (£5.1m) as an FPL option. Set pieces probably swing it in Digne’s favour but it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he kept pace during this next run of games, as the Frenchman settles into his new surroundings. Cash’s expected goal involvement (xGI) delta of -1.46 certainly suggests there is more to come from him, and confirms that he has been unfortunate not to produce more attacking returns in 2021/22 so far.

Normally we preach a ‘wait and see’ policy with new signings to see how they bed in, but with Villa’s next run of fixtures of such an attractive nature, an early move for Digne is appealing. The former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain full-back will provide an attacking quality that Villa have been lacking this season, and if they are handed a Double Gameweek 23, it’s realistic to think he’ll be subject to huge Fantasy interest in the coming days.

    Livramento -> Ait Nouri/Lowton?

    1. Yes Ndidi

      RAN. Not necessarily nailed, but scores well when he plays, and should be safe for a while.
      Lowton. Nailed, plenty of games in hand, but won't score highly in any of them.

      Old Gold for me

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Lowton has 18 extra games up his sleeve.

      1. Yes Ndidi
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Those 18 extra points could be useful I guess

        1. The Knights Template
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          I counted 12

    3. Tonyawesome69

      Is Livramento really a pressing transfer when you have Cash?

      1. NorCal Villan
          3 months, 29 days ago

          Isn’t Livramento still injured?

        Sorry to hear this Brendon Fraser.

        Give me something I can rely on
        Far away from the life that I once knew
        What does it matter, that's all I have to say
        And I can't imagine

        Good result for Monaco the other night.

      Son to KDB and Mount to Coutinho 4ph? Need the cash to get KDB.
      What are your thoughts on Coutinho? He looked pretty hungry to me.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Gerrard did say not yet match fit so that’s a risk which will reduce as he plays more games but otherwise looks good option

      2. Yes Ndidi
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Scored a goal I could have scored. Having said that, a class act, looks up for it, obviously has a manager who knows his strengths.
        Definitely on my WC radar. As is Kev.

      3. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years

        Not sure Countinho is ready to start and play 60. Wait and see what Gerrard says.

      Any news on Ronaldo today? Really need him to play got Dennis as (VC)

      1. david31058
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Utd have announced to all FPL players that he will be on the bench and that he will come on after 72 minutes.

        1. jonnybhoy
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          18 minutes for a hattrick play on the tiredness

        2. MikeS
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          This is correct, it was also announced he will Indeed score the perfect hatrick- netting in minutes 79, 84 and 90+4, sweeping up all three bonus

      2. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Back in training so should be ok- but way things going will come off bench for 1 point and Dennis will get us 2 extra points……..

    7. Yes Ndidi
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Defensive pairing question please...

      Cresswell/Laporte (not struck on Digne just yet)
      vs
      Robertson/Veltman (or another 4.2 or less)

      Others are Trent/Cancelo/White.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Laporte and DGW def

        1. Yes Ndidi
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 29 days ago

          So Digne or Cash then realistically.
          I've all but given up planning around doubles that don't happen.

          1. Tonyawesome69
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            Villa also have good upcoming fixtures without the potential double

          2. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 29 days ago

            Doubles not happening has been mostly bad luck. In future expect them to happen and sgw:s been cancelled more often. Having said that, if a team has a double then the cancellation risk is also higher.

    8. FantasyHero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 29 days ago

      Who to bench for gw23:
      1. Raph
      2. King

      Have Dennis.

      1. lilmessipran
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 29 days ago

        Raph might have a double GW and will probably be captained by many

          Dennis still possibly a better transfer and captain than Ronaldo, and you've saved ~6M too. Not that I'm bitter...

            I do wonder if the Leeds approach of just pushing through may pay off at the back end, when Burnley have 11 games in 3 weeks and Leicester have 14 in 4 including Europe.

              11 games in 3 weeks/14 in 4 weeks is a match literally every 2nd day - its impossible. Either season get's extended or some games will be declared draws, or decided on a coin toss?

              I'd really like to buy Digne, but already have Cash. On one hand Lucas is far better fpl option I reckon, but on the other hand is just waste a transfer for Villa defence.

              Something to consider

                When would you play him though with TAA, Cancello and CHS d?

                  It's easy, for now i don't have a Chelsea defender already. Since James injury. And i guess i won't have one until G28.

                  24 + 25 over a Chelsea defender for sure!

              This game used to be about picking players you thought would play well. Now it's about picking players you think will simply play

                LFT came back positive this morning.
                I live in Midlands, surely that's enough to postpone Leicester & Villa's games this weekend.

                    Essentially you are less than halfway through your GW. A little early to say "all" your players have blanked.

                  Messi told Lewy 2 months ago that he deserved the Balon d’or.

                  He then goes ahead to vote for Neymar, Mbappe & Benzema for the Fifa “the best” award

                  Shows the kind of person he is.

                    He told about 2020, though, didn’t he?

                    Kinda shows the kind of listener you are:)

                        3 months, 29 days ago

                        Hmmm but Lewy deserved the balon d’or in 2021. He had the highest goal + assist involvement.

                        Messi probably only won it because he is Messi & won the copa america that year.

                      I was so f close to Dennis(C) but I figured out that the game vs Burnley could be at risk.

                      Just common sense.

                            I was worried about watford's DGW, but had other more important players to be brought in, so didn't bring any watford players in.

                            In case of Dennis though kinda seems like karma, since club didn't let him to go to AFCON, although he wanted to go.

                                  Doubt it was karma too,just seems like it. 🙂 In some terms I was lucky in other's not so much so far. Captaincy choice might go pretty badly this GW, although i'm on the same boat probably with a lot of FPL managers.

                                      Nice, I have reached around 2000 in last 3-4 GWs

                                      Have missed few changes in last couple of weeks, around 15-20pts loss

                                          Damn. It’s harder now for me. The managers in the top 1k are really good but it’s fun.

                                          You’re having a good season too. Really enjoying the game tbh but I wonder if we’re more than 1 million managers lol

                                              Given how little output he’s had this season (2.7 points per game), does it really matter who he is playing?

                                          11.3 itb lol.. and I have 12.7m player doing nothing on the bench 🙁

                                          KDB is obviously very good but not sure about doubling up with Foden, plus at his price you'd want a sure starter. Fixtures are golden but I'd rather double up in defence.

                                          I think Duffy or Livra out (depending on length of injury) is more pressing than Moura..guy can still benefit with Son out. Eduoard is a shaky hold as well, you'd want a Villa striker if they double.

                                        b. play vs BUR

                                          A, especially if Burnley fixture is off as usual 🙂

                                            but if confirmed the fix is on would you keep/play or still switch?

                                          if the Burnely fixture is on then keep and play him, he is in good form too.

                                        Best Mount replacement? Any budget. Currently on KDB

                                          Cout if double. Or you can plan for the return of the king Mo

                                        Just noticed (poor advance planning!), the Man U West Ham game at the weekend. Have De Gea, Bruno and Ronaldo and Bowen and Antonio.
                                        General plan was to change Bruno back to Salah when possible, probably via KDB. Should I just ride this week out or start shifting Ronnie or Antonio?

                                          That game could end up 2-2 or 3-3 and you'll be laughing all your way to the bank.

                                            Thanks yep. That's right. Just hope not postponed!

                                          see how Ronnie does on the weekend, can shift Antonio too (I did this week for Dennis which allowed me to get Bruno for Son so I guess it worked out :D)

                                            Yeah guess so. Hopefully he will play tomorrow!

                                        Have a feeling that Coutinho might not start the next match either and be used as a super sub

                                          Yes quite possible, or he could play 60

                                            Which would probably be enough to bring in. I expect the latter as Gerard probably expects a difficult game.
