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.

            May have been an idea to hire someone who can actually spell 'Benfica'

            Cruyff has some pressure on his hands now

                  Don't play one, saw one on facebook iirc that had messi and ronny at 14m, they have a similar style to FPL in that 14m is the cutoff value and nobody goes higher.

                  Other sites have different methods, different budgets etc so it's harder to compare.

                                                      Would be Dembele over Chadli with Eriksen out wide.

                                                      And if Lamela's as good as he's claimed to be, then Spurs.

                                                                                    Was thinking specificly about Brayford, but would think there were more defenders at 4.0 who were at the dropping zone, just saw that there is no defender under 4.0 in the game.

FISO especially has come on here and said they are not to be used as a sure thing for now.

                                                                                              There's no hard FPL limit though so it's probably tonight.
