Monitor – David Silva

Having failed miserably to defend their title last time out, City’s decision to install Manuel Pellegrini at the helm is a deliberate move away from the more conservative approach favoured by Roberto Mancini. The Chilean’s summer acquisition of forwards Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic, however, while good news for City fans, has led to fears that the up-front rest and rotation policy so favoured by Mancini will once again rear its head.

With a goal and assist over the first couple of Gameweeks, David Silva has thrown his hat in the ring as a real alternative route into an attack that has already racked up six goals – more than any other side in the top-flight. The little Spaniard affords a far greater security of game time, with his creativity crucial to creating chances for Pellegrini’s frontmen and ahead of a home clash with Hull, his Fantasy bandwagon is in overdrive as Eden Hazard and Juan Mata owners look to the City playmaker as a premium midfield alternative.

In this latest article for members, we analyse Silva’s performances so far. Check on his progress compared to last season and assess his credentials at the most sought-after midfielder in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.

    Hull's Steve Bruce is to make a fresh swoop for Nicklas Bendtner.

    Oh dear 😆

        if he is in , i think his price should be a record breaker at FPL , 3.5 is fair enough 😀

          how come bendtner isnt listed on FPL? is it because they know nobody would pick him anyway? 😛

              Don't get all the Arsenal angst. Every year they get through the group stage, sometimes only just, and then get battered by the first decent team they meet.This way, they are guaranteed to test themselves against the best, and if/when they get battered they are spared the protracted process and false hope of previous seasons, and can concentrate on 4th place in the league!

                  Arsenal have released 27 players and bought 1 player, which should save close to 30m in wages.

                  We haven't spent our 70m transfer fund and should get some interest on it

                  We are gonna be so rich, and everyone's jealous 😉

                    Why is everyone laughing at Arsenal. If they play well, first isn't far away and 2nd is likely. Coming from a Liverpool fan. (we're not in Europe, so I and other LFC fans
                    can't laughs at others!)

                        You don't win the league when you play well, you win it when you play bad and still pick up the 3 points. Arsenal never had a problem when they had a good day, but they can't win ugly.

                        Pros .. nailed on , nice schedule , budget friendly as an arsenal player , good form
                        Cons .. deep , 2 goals in 1 match might be once or twice in a life time , an assist is ur best hope i think

                                Boruc, Vorm, Jaaskelainen? Give me an advice, please.

                                    You should think about your other goalie. Is he playable? Should you take one that rotates well with him, or are you going to get one that you will play all day every day.. But from those three I'd go for Boruc. And actually I think he is the best option for his price.

                                    I don't understand how price rises work for players I have in my team. For example, I bought Barkley at 4.5, he's now 4.9, but in my team is priced at 4.7. If I sell him I get 4.7 and not 4.9, why?

                                            Ah, thanks. So even if they rise by 0.3, you get 0.1, if they rise by 0.4, you get 0.2? I wondered where the 0.1 for Shaw went..
