🐺Aït-Nouri: The Next Stuart Dallas?

We always want to try and find a player Out Of Position and I think Aït-Nouri could be the one.

Let’s have a look at his 20/21 campaign, pre season form and points ceiling to see if he’s worth the risk! Let’s go 👊🏻

🧐20/21 Review

Aït-Nouri scored after 18 minutes of his debut against CRY. The youngster showed great attacking intent playing as a LB & LWB.

In the final 9 games, the Frenchman established himself as a starter, with Jonny (£4.5) & Marçal (£4.5) sidelined. This included 2…
…Clean Sheets & even beginning to take Set Pieces!

Across the season he was 2nd for take ons per 90, Creating 14 Chances in the process, superb for a budget Defender.

Wolves also still we’re mid table on Defensive numbers, including 12th for Goals Conceded (52).
🥱Pre Season

So far, Aït-Nouri has played 2 games at LM/LW in the absence of Neto & Podence, including 76’ against Betis, suggesting Lage is seriously looking at him for LW.

And having impressed so far, it is a real possibility that the Frenchman is considered for the League…

Wolves’ style of play also seems to be a lot more positive, creating more chances than when under Nuno. And having registered a Clean Sheet in pre season, owners can be hoping for Clean Sheets & Attacking Returns.
📝Lage System

The manager’s system depends on Full Backs, combining for 29 Goals in Portugal alone. They would stay very wide then either overlap or go inside to carry the ball.

Attacking Full Backs were key to Lage, giving them freedom when going Forwards. Aït-Nouri is a…
… is a gifted Left Back with a great amount of speed and mobility, and looking at the quality of his deliveries in pre season he will be a great option.

With a great cross, he is also strong coming inside so will be a favourite of Lage, so will fit right in and be a main stay.

Wolves have a tough start, facing 3 of the top 8 for xG this season. It does get a lot easier from GW4, coming up against 2 of the promoted sides and a poor Defences.

It may be sensible to wait and see where he plays before jumping on at GW4 to clean up the points.

🏥Jonny (£4.5)
Injured his ACL in April so will be out for the start of the season.

😬Marćal (£4.5)
Only played 13 games last season and didn’t feature when Aït-Nouri was fit.

If he doesn’t play LW then Aït-Nouri’s certainly nailed at LB, so is great value in DEF.
🔄Rotation Pairings

(wat, NEW, BRE, wat, BRE, sou, NEW)

Partnering Aït-Nouri with a Villa Defender gives you a great run of fixtures to GW7. Villa were 3rd best for Clean Sheets last year and Lage’s system will bring more for Wolves, so they’re a good rotation pair.

I am a huge fan of Aït-Nouri because of his affordable price, high Clean Sheet Potential & to top it all of he’s playing Out Of Position!

He is currently in my draft, but I don’t mind leaving him till GW4 for the fixture swing to see if he continues playing LW.

🎨 Best Semi-Premium (£10.0-£8.0) MIDS 🎨

Many managers are looking to cover each price point and a sticking point is the Semi-Premium (£10.0-£8.0) Block.

I’ll assess the key options at that price point and which player should fill the position. Let’s go 👊🏻

#FPL #FPLCommunity Image
🐓Son (£10.0)

With Kane seeming likely to leave, how will Son cope? But I think this could be the making of him.

In a recent friendly, Son played ST (3 Goal Involvements) and looked ready to get in behind & cause problems, so arguably he will be improved as an FPL asset… Image

Son was superb last season, with 17 Goals & 13 Assists. His 134 Penalty Area Touches are great for a MID, having 23 Big Chances in Total. The Korean’s 14 Big Chances Created are also impressive.

The only downside is Kane & Son combined for 15 Goals last season so Son is… Image

🎯Best Mid Priced (£7.0-£8.0) FWDs

All drafts I’ve seen so far have at least 1 Mid Priced Forward. But the problem is there are so many great options.

I’ll look into each players fixtures and points ceiling to try and help you nail your Mid Price Option.

#FPL #FPLCommunity
⚪️Bamford (£8.0)

Last season’s hero, Bamford was 2nd highest FWD scorer (194). His 17 Goals & 11 Assists superb for his first EPL Season.

The Forwards Goal Threat was strong, with 174 Penalty Touches, taking 95 Attempts in the Box. 32 Big Chances also highlighting his poacher…
…qualities. Also on Pens, Bamford’s looking a great option.

Leeds’ opening fixtures are mixed, getting better from GW7. But Leeds were attacking against any oppo last season. A major downside for me is the price, with £8.0 possibly too much for the Englishman.
