Digne, Broja, De Bruyne and Coutinho: The FPL lessons from Double Gameweek 23

We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points from Saturday’s Double Gameweek 23 fixtures.

GOALS, ASSISTS AND BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) was one of a host of previously flagged players who made their returns from injury, illness or international duty on Saturday but there were some fresh concerns to report from around the grounds.

Raul Jimenez (£7.4m) missed out on Wolves’ win over Brentford, although his omission appears to be more precautionary in nature:

“He felt something, so we protect him. I don’t want to create problems for him in his calf, so it’s better to protect him” – Bruno Lage on Raul Jimenez

Newcastle lost Joelinton (£5.8m), Paul Dummett (£4.5m) and Jamaal Lascelles (£4.4m) to injuries in their win over Leeds, and the trio will now be assessed during the winter break:

“Joelinton has been suffering with a groin problem since I arrived. Today he succumbed to that which was a disappointment given the form he’s been in. I’m not sure how serious [Dummett] is, fatigue may have played a part. [With Lascelles], I think it’s his hamstring because he went down awkwardly so we’ll have to assess that.” – Eddie Howe

Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m) wasn’t between the posts for West Ham, with David Moyes hinting that the Pole was absent because of coronavirus.

“Like every other Club, we’ve got some injuries, and we’ve got some COVID [cases], so we’ll have to play with what we have. Unfortunately, Łukasz misses out – he’s been playing so well for us this year – it’s happened, and that’s part of football.” – David Moyes

The goalkeeper, plus Brentford concussion victims Rico Henry (£4.5m) and Mathias Jensen (£4.9m), should all have served their respective protocols long before Gameweek 24.

News is awaited on the severity of the injury that forced Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.4m) off, meanwhile.

GAMEWEEK 23 TALKING POINTS

DANGEROUS BROJA

Around 95% of Armando Broja‘s (£5.2m) owners in the top 10k benched the budget forward for the clash with champions-elect Manchester City, likely not expecting much from a meeting with the best defensive side in the division.

Broja did indeed blank but he again demonstrated just what a threat he can be for such little financial outlay, posing the City backline a threat in what little time he got on the ball.

Spurning a one-on-one opportunity and hitting the post with a close-range header in the second half, Broja had found the net and been felled by Ederson (£6.1m) in the box before the break – only to be found to be offside in both cases.

The fixtures turn very good, very soon, and the Saints also have an outstanding fixture against Newcastle to be crowbarred into the schedule; could that be as soon as Gameweek 25? Broja, then, should only increase in popularity from mid-February onwards.

The Saints and the superb Mohammed Salisu (£4.5m) put up an excellent fight against Manchester City, as they did in the reverse fixture, and are an obdurate side despite the clean sheet drought which now extends to 11 matches. Only two clubs from outside the top eight have beaten them this season, and one of those losses was in Gameweek 1.

DE BRUYNE DELIVERS

There was disappointment for owners of most City assets in this fixture but they bombarded the Southampton goal, with Phil Foden (£8.0m) only denied an attacking return when Raheem Sterling (£10.8m) spurned a sitter that his fellow England international teed up.

Kevin De Bruyne (£12.2m) wasn’t quite at his absolute brilliant best but he was still the Citizens’ most prominent threat, almost adding to his assist and maximum bonus with one effort that struck the post and another that whistled just wide. The Belgian is averaging 7.9 points per match over his last seven starts and now he and his league-leading side face Brentford and Norwich in two more plum fixtures after the winter break.

Goalscorer Aymeric Laporte (£5.7m), meanwhile, now hasn’t blanked in any of his last eight appearances and has started every City league match that he has been available for from Gameweek 2 onwards.

RAPHINHA CAN’T DO IT ALL ALONE

Two sides overly reliant on their respective talismans met at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon, with Allan Saint-Maximin (£6.7m) and Raphinha (£6.6m) unable to add to their impressive FPL points tallies.

The minor drawback to the value-for-money pair is that their teammates simply aren’t as good as they are, as evidenced when Daniel James (£6.0m) and Joe Willock (£5.7m) spurned big chances that the two star wingers teed up for them.

Saint-Maximin and the slightly below-par Raphinha created six opportunities between them in this match, with no-one in any Gameweek 23 fixture bettering the Brazilian’s nine penalty box touches so far.

Newcastle banked only their second clean sheet of the season and their first on the road, with Kieran Trippier (£5.0m) showing his class and registering a bonus point to go with his shut-out.

Jonjo Shelvey (£5.3m) scored for the second time in four matches, this one owing a lot to a goalkeeping error.

MORE TOILING FROM UNITED

Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) delivered his fifth blank in seven appearances under Ralf Rangnick as Manchester United rescued victory from the jaws of a dour draw against West Ham.

The lure of a possible Double Gameweek 25 and more favourable fixtures keeps his existing owners just about interested but he’s not exactly delivering on his premium price tag at present, without an attacking return – or big chance – in 2022.

Above: Manchester United assets sorted by big chances in Gameweeks 21-23

The veteran striker cut a frustrated figure against West Ham, remonstrating with his teammates on multiple occasions, but he at least has Burnley up next, a team that he registered his only Rangnick-era double-digit haul against when facing the Clarets in December. He was also presented with three big chances in that game.

There were only four efforts on target overall at Old Trafford, including Marcus Rashford‘s (£9.4m) last-gasp winner. West Ham were just as uninspiring but Jarrod Bowen (£6.8m) did enough to keep his owners encouraged, lashing into the side netting with his best chance and then being agonisingly denied an assist when the fit-again Tomas Soucek (£5.7m) drifted a header from Bowen’s corner wide.

Three excellent fixtures from an attacking perspective now follow, while prospects might be rosier at the back despite the clean sheet shortage (just two in 14 games) as Kurt Zouma (£5.4m) made his long-awaited return from injury on Saturday and immediately made a big difference, improving even Craig Dawson (£4.9m) alongside him.

WOLVES WIN AGAIN

Another solid performance from Wolves saw them move within four points of a Champions League spot, with Joao Moutinho (£4.9m) and Ruben Neves (£5.3m) doing the damage with rare returns from the centre of midfield.

Most FPL interest in Wolves centres around their backline and while they failed to keep a clean sheet for the second match in a row, they have now conceded one goal or fewer in each of their last 10 league matches.

Just as a James Ward-Prowse (£6.3m) wondergoal broke their resilience last weekend, this time it was only a superb Ivan Toney (£6.6m) volley – the Bees’ solitary effort on target – that carried a meagre expected goals (xG) rating of just 0.07 that spoiled their clean sheet.

Romain Saiss (£5.0m) returns from AFCON duty in Gameweek 24 to bring their defence back up to full strength. Even if you’re not buying a Wolves defender in FPL anytime soon, it pays to check if your attacking assets are set to face this in-form backline:

As for Brentford, it’s now one clean sheet in 18 matches for Thomas Frank’s Premier League rookies. They did make life difficult for City when they last met them in December but it’s still a very favourable fixture for the league leaders in Gameweek 24.

DIGNE BEING DIGNE

A duck egg followed by a 12-pointer is classic Lucas Digne (£5.0m) but his promising debut against Manchester United did hint at the potential for past FPL form to be revived over a very favourable run of games, and he duly delivered with a clean sheet, maximum bonus and assist in the 1-0 win over Everton.

On a share of set plays, it was Digne’s corner that was nodded in by Emiliano Buendia (£6.2m) for Villa’s match-winner. Registering almost four times as many final-third touches as Matthew Cash (£5.1m) on the other flank, the French left-back is the most-bought player of Gameweek 24 at this very early stage.

Philippe Coutinho (£7.0m) is not far behind him for transfers in (he was also the most-bought player of Gameweek 23) but there was enough from this performance to suggest he’s still readjusting to English football, with a start against the Toffees perhaps too much of an ask in hindsight given that he has been without game-time for so long.

Coutinho now goes away with Brazil on international duty, which should aid his match fitness, and he’ll be back well in time for the Gameweek 24 clash with Leeds United.

Ollie Watkins (£7.7m) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) both drew a blank, each of them wasting a big chance, but it’s the Villa man who still looks the pick of two, as much for the fact that he’s playing for a better team on current evidence. Everton rallied under interim boss Duncan Ferguson in the second half, getting on top of their visitors, but didn’t test Emiliano Martinez (£5.5m) once and it was more perspiration than inspiration in truth.

      If Jota scores a brace today I guess it doesn’t matter as everyone has him

        95% EO in top 10k and lower as rank goes down.

        So a 15 pointer gets 0.75 gain on others around in top 10k so still something e.g. cancels out Foden's point impact as non owner

        1. PartyTime

          It does because 7% captained him. 40% went Dennis - C

          International break I think

        Kdb or Salah in next?

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Both would be ideal but difficult to fit in so I say Salah.

        2. waltzingmatildas
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          I've got kdb and will get salah in this week.
          But I think Salah first

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            You will have both?

            1. waltzingmatildas

          See how far Egypt gets in AFCON

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          I set my WC up with both, but Salah priority

        6. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Need to sell Kane to fund both, so would require 3 moves. And really no tempting forwards at the moment, have Dennis and Broja. Watkins, many, in the hope he’ll step up

      4. sandman58
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Any Burnley fans out there.....what's Ur thoughts on Jay Rod as the first choice striker now Wood has gone?...loads of games in hand

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Surely they’ll buy someone or they’ve got guaranteed relegation

        2. Butthead
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          K.Moore on his way

          1. sandman58
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            From Cardiff?.....surely not

        3. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          He’s not worth a striker slot. He’s a decent striker in the championship but he’s just not a Prem player. If Burnley rely on him to replace Wood they are gone

      5. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 23 days ago

        Which looks best?
        A) jota and ait-nouri

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          b. with Mo soon back i guess Jota wont be as good

        2. Hktrader88
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 23 days ago

          Why Gray? What about use the extra funds to get Gallagher or Raph? Palace good fixtures.

          1. waltzingmatildas
            • 11 Years

        Any obvious chip strategies been developed or is it too early until some more DGW's have been announced...I suggest most have all chips remaining.

          Jacob Ramsey, what a legend !
          With his 3 pointer single handedly saving my game week.

          1. AC Yew
            • 3 Years

            Could really do with his 12 points this week. Really scraping by at the moment!

          Anyone else considering Buendia over Coutinho. He's looking really lively atm

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            Not sure how many minutes he'll do. Ramsey however....

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 23 days ago

              Not worried about Ramsey’s minutes? He’s been great but has been playing OOP and might get squeezed out.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Not a good feeling to be relying on Marcus Alonso to save your gameweek

                I still got Rudiger, clean sheet wouldn't go amiss.

            After weeks of Alonso YCs and trolling, i took him out

            So dont worry, he'll get a clean sheet assist and a goal this week

          DCL and Ronny as my two strikers, feels a very sad and lonely place to be in right now.

                • 9 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                If Kane continues bettering his form, he could be good for owner’s ranking this week, only selected by 13.6 % of the teams.

              4. griffzinho

                He has been so unlucky not to register greater returns. Incorrect offside, hitting post, etc. He’s coming good form wise. Watch this space. Probably won’t do much today but after that worth 12M with his games in hand.

                1. RamaJama
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                  Will be interesting to see his consistency versus Bruno’s moving forward, who’s worth the spending, if any of them

            • 5 Years

            There's really no stand out options up front this season. Will be moving all funds into def/mid and running with a single cheapie up front from now on.

              • 3 Years

              Im thinking of doing this tbh. Who are you likely to go with? Dennis (C) really ticked me off.

                • 9 Years

                Dennis still good value, just don’t captain

        8. Martial Mathers
          • 12 Years

          With forwards stumbling could it be time for a Bruno/KDB/Salah triple?!

          It is possible with a decent defence which could be interesting.

          Would mean having Broja/Watford striker/Norwich Striker up top

            Problem is many good value midfielders around better than the forwards … those big hitters claim the slots

            Ill have Salah and 1 of them, maybe Fernandes as always wary of Pep roulette especially when Champs restarts

              It’s still yet to be seen if Bruno’s consistently back in the points, defending that high price on a regular base compared to Cheaper mids. Or if Bruno just had A couple of good matches

                Same tbh, too many mids to choose from and too little forwards.
                Have Bruno last few weeks and happy to keep as it stands

                Just go 4 at the back. Robbos a better option than any of the forwards. 4-5-1 is the formation to have these days.

            Jota was preferred over Firmino and looks in form, at his price I'm ok with benching every few games.

            Jesus looked good.

            Well Sterling was atrocious from what I seen (only watched 1st half) so I would expect to see Mahrez back next match. But then maybe rotated for Norwich as there is a UCL shortly after.

          10 points! Really? I’m sure many of us are staring down possibly our worst game week in memory ….. when we were served up with Fridays debacle, I assumed we were over the worst of it.

          Still 6 to play but Jesus H …..

            I'm on 9 points but I've only dropped 20k points from 180k. Not too bothered as I went into this GW with 9.6m itb and no need to take a hit to get Salah. Just a 'take it and move on' type of GW for most.

            He is. No flag because he's not suspended for next Gameweek which is what flags are used for

          Thoughts on ignoring that DGW for United and just focus on getting KDB and Salah?

          GW24: Maddison Martineli to KDB Ramsey -4
          GW25: Ronaldo Gray to Salah Broja -4

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 23 days ago

            That's what I am doing. Will probably just have DDG

          2. AARON-1
              3 months, 23 days ago

              The United double would be two home games against Southampton and Brighton unless I'm mistaken.
              I'm keeping Bruno and Ronaldo thus slightly delaying the move to Salah.
              United are beginning to look a little better with each game that passes. While they are nowhere near their potential, those two home matches are decent enough fixtures.

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 5 Years
                3 months, 23 days ago

                Southampton has been stepping up and Brighton is no push over. United has played poorer defenses. Salah will play Butnley.

                  Gray v Newcastle. King may be "on penalties" as we are constantly reminded, but Watford have to actually get a penalty first...

                Foden has only played 90 minutes on 8 occasions this season. Apart from 3 double digit hauls of 18, 12, and 11, he has not really scored highly enough in the other matches to warrant too much gushing praise. He is an excellent player and one I owned for the slightly fortunate 18 pointer against Brighton, but I am reluctant to include him in my wildcard later on. Super potential but not delivering, which is frustrating. I wonder whether to simply stick with City defenders instead.

                  He's barely playing back to back games.

                  Mahrez is preferred for Champions League.

                  KdB, Silva and Rodri in the main but Silva isn't sparkling.
