Villa provides up-to-date information on Ollie Watkins’ fitness

FPL Heads Take Note: Dean Smith Provides Up-to-Date Fitness Update for Ollie Watkins

Watkins, a popular FPL option

With the new Premier League season just two days away, FPL bosses around the world are finalizing their teams for the opening weekend. Ollie Watkins was a firm favorite on many people’s teams last season, and with a price tag of 7.5 million in this year’s game, he might as well prove to be a canny acquisition once again.

Despite the loss of Jack Grealish to Manchester City, Villa has gone up well this summer, adding Emi Buendia, Danny Ings and Leon Bailey to his side in place of Grealish. Ings ‘arrival drew criticism of Watkins’ role on Dean Smith’s side, with some thinking he could be moved to the wing to accommodate the former Southampton striker.

However, speaking just days before the new season, Smith clarified the latest on Watkins’ physical condition and also how he will be used this season, which will be a relief to the FPL bosses.

Smith speaks

Speaking to Sky Sports, Smith, when asked about Ollie Watkins potentially playing on the left, replied:

“Watkins hasn’t played open for a couple of years. I didn’t bring it to play there. He scored 26 goals for Brentford playing as a center forward in the Championship and he came to us and scored 16 goals as a center forward as well, so no, I can’t imagine him out there. “

Additionally, as reported by the Birmingham Mail, Smith “hopes” that Watkins can shake off the knee injury that forced him off the pitch in the Villians’ preseason friendly against Salernitana in Serie A.

With Watkins ready for the start of the season and ready to play most of his football in the familiar forward role, will he make his team?
