Monitor – David Silva

David Silva is a name that has been much discussed this week, not least because City are set to face a Reading side that has capitulated in defence of late, conceding 13 goals in their last four league outings. The omens for City’s attackers look good and Silva, as perhaps the most secure Fantasy asset on show, has earned deserved attention as a result.

It has to be said, however, that Silva has disappointed so far this season. Niggling injuries and the erratic form of City’s strikers has undoubtedly hindered the playmaker’s returns. You only have to cast an eye back over statistics from last season to get an impression of just how Silva has dipped: by Gameweek 17 last term, he had fetched five goals and eight assists (Opta not FPL), a far cry from his current Opta stats of a single goal and three assists.

Given the number of eyes cast his way going into the weekend, it seems prudent to delve deeper into Silva’s performance data to run some comparisons to last season’s numbers to assess whether this fall in returns is a long-term cause for concern.

      Foster
      Cuellar / Enrique / Nastasic
      Sterling / Silva / Cazorla / Michu
      Defoe / Suarez(v) / RVP(c)

      Begovic / Snodgrass / Cameron / Nelsen

      All set? May opt for Snod over Sterling...
