FPL new signings: Who is Mykhailo Mudryk?

Chelsea poached Mykhailo Mudryk (£7.0m) from under the noses of Arsenal last weekend, signing the 22-year-old in a projected £88m deal from Shakhtar Donetsk.

He caught the eye in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage and arrives on the back of 10 goals and nine assists across all competitions this season.

The Ukrainian winger was paraded on the pitch at half-time during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, after signing a whopping eight-and-a-half-year deal.

Mudryk has since been priced up as a £7.0m midfielder by FPL and could make his debut when the Blues travel to Liverpool in the opening fixture of Gameweek 21 on Saturday.

But is Chelsea’s new signing worthy of Fantasy interest? We’ll assess his appeal in this Scout Report piece.

Coming through Skakhtar Donetsk’s youth academy, Mudryk was handed a first-team debut in a Ukrainian Cup match at the age of 17.

The next step was a loan move to Arsenal Kyiv before he returned to Shakhtar and made three Premier Liga appearances in 2019/20.

Another loan followed, to Desna Chernigiv, where he gained vital experience, which helped him establish himself upon his return to his parent club, who had just appointed current Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi.

Mudryk scored his first goal in October 2021 and featured in every UCL group-stage game that season, including matches against Real Madrid and Inter Milan. However, the domestic league was halted due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, leaving him with only 11 Premier Liga appearances in 2021/22.

The current campaign sees him boast seven goals and six assists in 12 league appearances, with five goal involvements in six UCL outings, an impressive showing given that Shakhtar were outsiders in their group.

For Ukraine’s national side, Mudryk has eight caps to his name so far, having made his international debut last year.

WHERE WILL HE FIT IN AT CHELSEA?

Dubbed the ‘Ukrainian Neymar’, Mudryk can play either in a wide position, as a number 10 or as a forward, but many of his best performances came when cutting in from the left onto his preferred right foot.

He is quick, his movement is great and he is equally comfortable staying wide or moving into more central areas.

As a result, it’s likely Mudryk will perform as a left-winger at Chelsea, certainly initially given the injury crisis at Stamford Bridge, which includes positional rivals Raheem Sterling (£9.7m) and Christian Pulisic (£5.7m).

Therefore, we could potentially see Graham Potter favour a front three of Mudryk, Kai Havertz (£7.8m) and Joao Felix (£7.5m), once the latter returns from suspension of course.

IN QUOTES

“It’s more comfortable for me when I play on the line where I can show all my potential one against one. I have more space to move to the front and I can create a lot more chances when I play on the line. There are more people in the middle. But, you know, the middle is also OK for me. My inspiration is Cristiano Ronaldo because of what you can do if you work hard and believe in yourself. I like the way Cristiano plays. I see myself like that – a winger. But I need more time to change my position from No. 11 or No. 7 to No. 9. With time it is possible.” – Mykhailo Mudryk

“He’s a young player with a big future. He has exciting quality in the final third, very fast and direct, attacks the backline, can go in wide areas but also affects the goal. He’s a really exciting player and I think our supporters will like him.” – Graham Potter

“I think Mudryk can win the Ballon d’Or in the future. I know the value of Mudryk, he has the potential to win the Ballon d’Or.” – Roberto De Zerbi, Mudryk’s former manager at Shakhtar

“Mudryk is a serious talent. After Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Junior, he’s the best player in Europe in his position. If someone wants to buy Mudryk they must spend a lot of money and respect our club and president.” – Darijo Srna, Shakhtar’s director of football

THE FPL PROSPECTS

The biggest problem at Chelsea right now is clearly at the top of the pitch, with just five goals scored in five games since the Premier League restarted, and 12 in 12 overall under Graham Potter. Across the 2022/23 campaign, the Blues rank 13th for minutes-per-xG (81.4), so it’s clear they need more quality in attack.

In that sense, the signing of Mudryk should provide a much-needed spark and help boost their numbers.

Due to those aforementioned injuries, it’s likely Potter will want to integrate Mudryk into his starting XI as quickly as possible (see Joao Felix), potentially as soon as Saturday’s visit to Anfield.

Mudryk may still be a little rough around the edges, but we’ve seen a huge step up in his output this season, with the obvious caveat that the Premier League is levels above the Ukrainian top flight. However, he’s already produced in the UCL, which offers encouragement that he can hit the ground running.

Mudryk was Shakhtar’s nominated set-piece taker because of his excellent crossing ability, so a share of dead-ball duties would boost his potential in FPL. Meanwhile, 1.33 key passes per 90 minutes (p90) in the UCL this season hints at his potential as a creator, while eight dribbles p90 shows a willingness to take players on in the final third in an attempt to make things happen.

The issue for Mudryk is the number of appealing midfielders available to FPL managers right now, which suggests it will be hard for most of us to fit him in.

Saying that, Chelsea have a favourable run of fixtures, including West Ham and Southampton in the next four Gameweeks, so Mudryk could be an option for anyone looking to break the template.

Nonetheless, with so many strong midfield options in the same price bracket, allowing him time to settle is probably best advised.

    Harry: Roll transfer
    Andy: Roll transfer
    James: Roll transfer
    Raptor: Roll transfer
    Big Man B: Roll transfer

    The word is spoken. I think I might listen for a change. KDB?

      Who are they ? and do you have the same squad and playing style, risk management etc. exactly the same as theirs ?

      Best to play your own game based on your own needs imho

      1. Eze Really?
        • 10 Years

        I think you missed the point. "Tongue in cheek" Do you know the expression?

          I know it very well, unfortunately it didn't come over as that in your post 😉

            Then excuse me. I will be less subtle in the future. (smile) I do notice sometimes, for whatever reason, on this site, people take Umbridge over such minor things.

              No umbrage taken, many on here follow and do what others say ... I just assumed you put some faith in those people, whom ever they are, and have some alternative advice 🙂

    Morning All,

    Would you do Mitrovic > Toney with a FT if no other issues with the team?
    Or roll transfer?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Would get Toney, on form

        1. JT11fc
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Almiron could be an alternative

  6. House Frey Wedding Planner
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Best Cucurella replacement?

    A - White
    B - Schar
    C - Any Brighton/Brentford defender
    D - Anyone else?
    E - Roll transfer and start Shaw

    Swaying towards White as he has a dgw in 23 and doesn't blank in 25.

    4. Ruinenlust

      Chelsea Liverpool games are always low-scoring

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Just the 17 goals in the last 5 meetings

        1. The Knights Template

          POW!

        2. Ruinenlust
          • 6 Years

          1. The Knights Template
            • 10 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            It’s seven goals per game. Times five and that equals seventeen goals in total, you fool of a Took!

      • 4 Years

      It's in other news sources as well. Hope he's fit for Spurs...no details as of yet.

      Pep presser today, hopefully to clarify.

  13. Atimis

    How bad is playing Shaw and White this week? Surely not that bad to take a hit to remove Cucu?

    1. Fellaini's Fro
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Could well be 0-0

    2. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      When two good teams meet it's essentially a grey fixture. Both okay options.

      Better than playing a weak defence against a decent team. i.e. Castagne (BHA), from a relative point of view.

      It takes two to tango.

  14. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    I'm starting to worry that if Arsenal don't win the league this year they won't get another chance for 5-10 years.

    Newcastle and Man Utd will spend £300m+ this summer. City will strengthen too. Chelsea have just spent £500m.

    I think Liverpool will drop off and Spurs will too.

    Arsenal won't get a better chance.

    1. Lucky Z
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      All is in their hands. And results they got are not accidental it is obvious a result of hard work of the manager and the players.

    2. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Literally told my Arsenal mates that they should start enjoying this season from now rather than be apprehensive.

      It's like you said, won't get a better chance after this season, as at the minimum I'd expect United to be a step better by then.

      1. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Arsenal bottle so much that its engrained in our psyche.

        A win against United and City in the coming weeks would make be believe its in the bag

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Don't fall for Brains' mind games! Don't you see, he's saying "dont be apprehensive", but really "be apprehensive, we're coming for you"

    3. JT11fc
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yup, unless they strengthen also, they have what could be a good core of players now

      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years

      Dont think they've had a pen with both on the pitch yet. I would assume Wilson for now

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Wilson I reckon.

    Will Kane finally leave Spurs at the end of this season to join Utd, City, Newcastle or dare I say Arsenal?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Al Nassr

    2. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yeah, I think he will leave.

      City have Haaland, Chelsea likely won't have UCL. Arsenal are fierce Spurs rivals. So I'd rule those three out.

      With only a year left on their contracts, I expect both Kane and Rice to move on in the summer. Exciting.

        Should be interesting

        I see what course you're plotting here...

        1. Piggs Boson

          😉

      Kane to United £100m is my guess. even though he has 1 year left.

      He can't go through having no trophies in his career.

      1. El Presidente
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        So he shouldn't go to United

    4. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Probably Man U, because they need him more than the other clubs do atm

      I really want him to move to a club with a lot of firepower and quality around him. He deserves a shot at Ballon d'Or but probably won't get that at Spurs, imo

    5. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years

      Paul O'Keefe yesterday said that he expects him to leave, said he's not discussing any extension and that Levy won't block his exit a third time

      1. Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Found it!

        https://twitter.com/pokeefe1/status/1615272904345911299?s=20&t=UjBX3PzCVy3PElTZMA0p4A

        "He [Levy] won’t block a third attempt and Harry isn’t engaging in talks about renewing. Time to get used to the idea because it’s going to be horrendous."

    6. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      He should. Abroad I reckon

      1. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I think he wants Shearer's record.

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Fair point. Utd or Chelsea could be likely destination, both have the dosh and need top striker

    7. Monty123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      As a Spurs fan, sadly he will leave along with Conte.

      I belie the only destination in England for him would be Man U, definitely not another London club

      I can't see him going to Europe as he wants to win English trophies.

      This also why we bought Richarlison, in my opinion, to be him in for next season

  18. Ze_Austin

    I find it a bit nuts that Maddison is still on the first page (29th overall) in FPL after missing six GWs

    One to monitor quite closely on his return. Many mids are flying now, so no rush

    1. Boberella
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I had him from the start and he was ticking along nicely til injury. Always love owning him.

    2. Dion D's Solo Shower
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Could be an option from GW26 with great fixtures. Assuming he is fit and Leicester are back in somewhat firing form

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Seems to be an extremely direct correlation between Maddi's fitness & Leicester' form

  19. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Morning guys, anything worth a -4 here with 1.4m in the bank?

    Kepa
    Trippier - Akanji - Botman
    Almiron - Rash - Martinelli - KDB
    Haaland - Kane - Toney

    Ward - White - Andreas - Dalot

    1. LC1
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Definitely not. Great team!

      1. Kodap
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks man.

      2. Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Agreed

    2. donbagino
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Nahh, g2g

  20. HurriKane
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    With nearly everyone owning Rashford is it time to get Bruno in alongside him?

    Rashford has basically become a dead spot like Haaland and Trippier.

    Its safe to say United attack is the best source for goals after Arsenal now.

    1. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      More interested in having the best players than covering teams

      Odegaard, Brighton mids and Rashford are priorities for me atm

      But I agree that Bruno has better form than the premium mids, so I'll go there if I want to sell Salah. I'm just more comfortable benching Salah and playing him in Liverpool's easy games, for now

      I have one representative from each of the good (imo) attacks: Haaland, Kane, Salah, March, Odegaard, Rashford, Toney and Almiron... So it might be a while before I double on any. Maybe Toney to Nketiah for the DGW

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Will get him in in for his double (hopefully confirmed) and then shift onto second Arsenal mid for their double the following week.

      I dont think he is great value but worth a go in the double.

      1. HurriKane
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Getting value players this season is out of the window wiith money floating everywhere due to premiums like TAA Cancelo Salah not performing

        Just got to pick inform players regardless of price

  21. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Sarabia may be a great option if the price is right...impressive stats

    1. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yup! Watching him closely too. Wolves are on a bit of an upturn, but it's been a slow burn since GW16. Maybe he'll speed that up

    2. El Presidente
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yeah but Wolves need to play much much better

  22. pingissimus
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Gibbs-White should be very much on the radar.

    Get the love for Mitoma but what is missed is that for all his returns he has one bap from five returns. A good deal of double think about - no names named. An option but not necessarily best in class.

    Mitoma = 5 returns for 36 points
    Gibbs-White = 5 returns for 39 points

    The difference? Baps from being a secret talisman.

    1. Paqueta Rice
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I like MGW, good option

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Its a small sample & quite a marginal difference but yeah fair point - it might be that in terms of BAPS & sharing points across the attack, Mitoma turns out to be somewhat akin to Martinelli with MGW more like a Maddison. I'm still not quite sure if MGW & Forest can be relied on for goals away from home or in tougher fixtures to the same degree as Mitoma & BHA though.

      For my own part, I'd say don't be coy with your "no names named" - I wouldn't take criticism of my stance on Mitoma personally & will gladly admit a bit of a blind spot with Forest

  23. EL tridente
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Pick 2:
    A) White
    B) Gabriel

    1) March
    2) Mac Allister
    3) Mitoma

    1. Paqueta Rice
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A1

      1. Paqueta Rice
        • 3 Years

        *B1

  24. ekul the lokonga enthusiast
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    matinelli and nketiah to toney and gibbs-white

    yay or nay?

    1. Paqueta Rice
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      No you will want them back for double

  25. Do I Not Like Orange
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Almiron > March this GW? Almiron seems to have returned to the mean in terms of output, so time to jump on another one having the season of life?

    1. villa_til_i_die
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Definitely.

    2. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      He has some nice fixtures coming up. I’m going to give him another week

  26. yoges
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Current team:
    Kepa (Ward)
    Trippier White Shaw (Thiago Silva, Bueno)
    Salah Martinelli Rashford Mount (Andreas)
    Haaland Kane Mitrovic

    1FT, .1 ITB

    Best move for GW21?

    a) Mitro to Toney
    b) Mount to Odergaard
    c) Thiago Silva to Schar and play him instead of White or Shaw
    d) Roll

    Thanks in advance!

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C this week, B next week?

      1. yoges
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Thanks! Could be an option. Just realised I don’t have enough funds for a) without one of the other moves in any case.

  27. Prinzhorn
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Should I roll my FT and have 2 for GW22?

    Ward
    Trippier - White - Perisic
    KDB - Saka - Rashford - Almiron
    Haaland - Kane - Martial

    Kepa - Andreas - Shaw - Patterson

    1. Weak Become Heros
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes, roll.

  28. tibollom
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Should I start Darwin instead of Almiron? No FT left, planning to get odegard in for almirn next week

    Kepa
    Trippier Schar White
    KDB Rash Almiron Kulu Marti
    Haaland Mitro

    Ward Darwin Lewis Bueno

  29. GS456
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Are people preferring March or Mitoma?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Mudryk! We’re all looking forwards hoy hoy hoy!

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      March, Mitoma, MGW and JWP wagons are taking off, while Mac Allister, Rodrigo and Martinelli wagons are grinding to a halt

      I believe there are many good options, and there will be good arguments for many of the form midfielders. Which do you prefer?

      1. GS456
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Probably Mitoma at the minute

    3. ameisin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Check their stats over last 6 GWs - March wins hands down, especially with baps baseline.

  30. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Was thinking of Andreas > Mtoma or perhaps roll?

    Current GW21 Team

    Kepa

    Trippier / Schar / White

    KDB / Rashford / Mahrez / Martinelli

    Kane / Haaland / Mitro

    Ward / Andreas / Shaw / Bueno

    Thanks
