Guardiola plants clues to Chelsea selection in Watford win

Pep Guardiola frustrated Fantasy Premier League owners with his team selection on Tuesday night.

Several key players were absent from the Manchester City side as they beat Watford 3-1.

We’ve got all the Fantasy talking points in this latest Scout Notes article.

*FPL prices are accurate at the time of writing (Tuesday PM).

Watford 1-2 Manchester City

Goals: Abdoulaye Doucouré (£5.9m) | Leroy Sané (£9.4m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m)

Assists: Mahrez

The team Pep Guardiola put out for their trip to Watford provided some clues to his rotation policy ahead of the busy winter period. Several of the players who missed out on the 3-1 win over Bournemouth came back in at Vicarage Road. David Silva (£8.7m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m), Fabian Delph (£5.3m) and Kyle Walker (£6.5m) were the headline changes to the side.

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) was left on the bench for just the third time this season. Some rotation for him should not come as too much of a shock, though. He played the full 90 minutes against Bournemouth amid Guardiola’s recent comments that Mahrez was breathing down his neck to rotate with him.

With the Algerian in excellent form when he does play, Guardiola can be confident playing him whenever he needs to give Sterling a rest – which could be quite often over the next month. In Mahrez’s last four Premier League starts he has amassed a total of three goals and two assists now as he was the top FPL scorer at Vicarage Road (13 points). Sterling owners can probably be confident of a start at the weekend though, with Tuesday’s rest under his belt.

Leroy Sané (£9.4m) continued his excellent form by scoring the fourth goal in his last five appearances, taking his points per game over that time to 9.2. As has been said plenty of times, his place in the side does feel more secure than those around him because of Benjamin Mendy’s relatively long-term absence. However, there can be no ignoring of the fact that the German international has now played 180 minutes across the last two fixtures. That may be enough for Guardiola to consider benching him for Chelsea, although it is a big game for Manchester City.

“Now we try to recover our legs and minds and go to Chelsea on Saturday and play our game. We know how difficult it is at Stamford Bridge, but first, we must rest and recover.” – Pep Guardiola

Also out of the side was Aymeric Laporte (£6.1m) who finally missed a match this season. That reconfirmed that nobody in this Manchester City side is safe from Guardiola’s rotation policy. The French centre-back had played every single minute in the Premier League up until the trip to Watford. He will probably come back in for the Chelsea match but this benching shows that over Christmas he may not necessarily be as nailed on as his owners might hope. Frustrating for his owners he came on for a one-point cameo in the closing stages. Responding to Watford’s late flurry, Guardiola introduced him for Gabriel Jesus (£10.1m) to sure things up.

Calling the full-back selection may be easier to call based on Manchester City’s line-up at Watford. Delph may have to continue at left-back with Zinchenko’s nose injury, but the fact that he played only the last half an hour against Bournemouth should mean he is rested enough in Guardiola’s mind. Walker also missed that one which means his 90 minutes in Hertfordshire shouldn’t jeopardise a start ahead of Danilo (£5.1m) at Stamford Bridge.

Prior to that were some clues about the options Guardiola wants to safeguard for the trip to Stamford Bridge in Gameweek 16. David Silva was replaced in the 73rd minute by Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m) in a clear sign that the Spanish midfielder is needed this weekend. It is possible that Vincent Kompany (£5.2m) will be able to keep his place after coming off in the 83rd minute. The Belgian international had to leave the pitch limping, holding his hamstring, but Guardiola confirmed it as nothing more than cramp post-match. Kompany will face competition from both Laporte and Nicolas Otamendi (£6.1m), who combined for just nine minutes of normal time in Hertfordshire. Having played 90 minutes, John Stones (£5.3m) is unlikely to hold onto his place.

As expected, Sergio Aguero (£11.5m) missed out once again after his recent struggles with injury. The Argentinian did not travel with the matchday squad and neither did Oleksandr Zinchenko (£4.8m), and Guardiola was not prepared to give an update on their condition in the aftermath of Tuesday night’s win.

“I don’t know (if Aguero will be fit). I don’t have the report right now.” – Pep Guardiola

Overall, it was not a hugely comfortable win for Manchester City, especially as Watford fought back late on. However, they did have plenty of chances to kill the game earlier on but didn’t take them. It is possible that six changes were what removed the ruthless edge. A testament to the quality in their ranks was the fact that even with the likes of Sterling and Aguero, Manchester City sill secured the three points.

“We had the chances to kill the game and score a third and then maybe a fourth, but we missed them. It is what it is. We knew it. We are not new in this league and we know it happens.” – Pep Guardiola

Javi Gracia made three changes to the side that lost at Leicester at the weekend. Christian Kabasele (£4.4m) returned at centre-back, coming in for Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m), Troy Deeney (£5.9m) replaced Gerard Deulofeu (£5.4m) up front while Nathaniel Chalobah (£4.5m) slotted in for the suspended Etienne Capoue (£5.0m).

“We tried to find the best option with Capoue out. It was the best option in my opinion – trying to be strong and compact in the middle with three players there plus Roberto, Troy and Isaac ready when we recover the ball to counter-attack. I think he played well. I think he needs to play more times to show what he can do but I think he showed a very good level.” – Javi Gracia

Will Hughes (£5.0m) was forced out of the game in the second half with a knock and was replaced by Domingos Quina (£4.4m), who made his first ever Premier League appearance.

“(Quina) is training well. He’s a young player but with high quality. I think he has a very good present but he will have a great future. Today is a special day for him because he has done his debut against City and played very well in my opinion.” – Javi Gracia

“(On Hughes) I think it’s the same pain as in the last games – in the hip. We’ll see in the next games but I’m confident he’ll be ready for the next game.” – Javi Gracia

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Delph, Stones, Kompany (Otamendi 83′), Walker; Fernandinho, D. Silva (Gundogan 73′), B. Silva; Sane, Mahrez, Jesus (Laporte 88′).

Watford XI (4-4-2): Foster; Holebas, Kabasele, Cathcart, Kiko Femenia; Pereyra, Doucouré, Chalobah (Deulofeu 63′); Hughes (Quina 51′); Deeney, Success (Gray 75′).

      With Sterling not playing and Robbo Alonso in doubt for tonight , cracks starting to show in my team as I have a weak bench. Need Kane (c) and Auba haul to save my gw. Then much needed tinkering to fix my bench

        ahh this GWK is killing me too. Down to 17k from 5k last week

          Don't be too upset. You only lost 12k places, I went from 150k to 216k

            It's probably around the same points difference between that comparisation though would be my guess

        2. KGFC

          Goals against Ful and City saved me from having a similar fate... feels bad when you drop out of top 10K... but I'm sure you'll be back.. ADB mate!

      Thoughts on this team?

      Fabianski Hamer
      TAA Rudiger Dunk AWB Digne
      Sterling Sane Anderson Eriksen Camarasa
      Kane Auba Success

      None ITB unfortunately, any changes needed?

        Looks good. I would possibly look at spreading the funds more in the longer run, but you can wait on that until an injury or something comes up.

      I remember when I sold Fraser for Barkley.. might be the worst move I've ever made

      1. Bojaninho

        live and learn

      2. BenDavies
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Don't understand that decision. Think perhaps (if you're a Chelsea fan) a bit of Chelsea bias clouded your thinking. Barkley was never a sure starter. Fraser is, and is central to their attacking play.

          It was a one week punt for the Palace game where he was nailed. He then became Brooks to free up cash. Hasn't worked out at all

          dont buy into that .Last week evryone was downgrading him to brooks and planning to ditch him and now after haul vs huddersfield(Thats for what i kept him) he is a seasonkeeper .So fickle

        Don't be so harsh on yourself... happens and that's what makes FPL so exciting!

        Swapping out Wilson and D.Silva as part of the Kane/Salah shuffle hasn't gone too well here...

          How can you say that?

        that was a poor move and i warned people not to get barkley before but dont be too harsh on urself cant see it hurting u too much in the long run.He was expected to haul vs hudds and hauled ,now has a series of tough fixtures till gw29 and there are lot of alternatives anyways.The danger of shipping him that time was his only bad frixture in this run was mancity(a)

    • AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…

      Fabs
      Laporte Robbo Alonso Doherty
      Sterling Son Richarlison
      Kane Auba Jimenez

      Button - Kenedy - AWB - Obiang

      Set up for next week. Any advice going forward? Just 0.1itb 0ft.

    • Zebrahimović
      • 3 Years
      10 days, 20 hours ago

      If Salah blanks tonight - Salah —> Hazard, Martial —> Son and Success —> Wilson for -8? Is that mad?

      1. JammySprat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Yes

        1. Zebrahimović
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          How could it be less mad. Cut the Wilson bit out?

          1. JammySprat
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            10 days, 20 hours ago

            Cut the -8 bit out haha. Salah Vs bou could be good so hold a week. Granted Son be nice but you've missed SOU so don't need for lei. Wilson fixtures bad so not worth minus.

            1. Zebrahimović
              • 3 Years
              10 days, 20 hours ago

              Need to replace Arnie though. I mean I could do Mitro or Jiminez

              1. JammySprat
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                10 days, 20 hours ago

                Yeah will have to wait and see who performs and if neither will hold and upgrade

          2. GaabRop
              10 days, 20 hours ago

              In the long run not a bad idea. But Hazard and Wilson have tough fixtures next GW, and Martial will play Fulham

        2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Not really. I'd probably stagger it personally

        3. BenDavies
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          I think that would be unwise. Wilson has some tough fixtures.

        4. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          You think Hazard will score at least 4 more points than Salah when he plays City?

          1. Zebrahimović
            • 3 Years
            10 days, 18 hours ago

            I was thinking more long term

        5. Paddington Bear
          • 1 Year
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Why would you bring in hazard

      3. balint84
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Arnie to Wilson? Have Fraser. Double Bournemouth vs Liverpool is crazy, isn't it?

        1. #FPLBhuna
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          i dont think it is

          bournemouth are deadly at home

        2. KGFC
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          I too am considering that. There aren't many other nailed + scoring strikers in that bracket. Already have Mitro so he is not an option for me. Maybe Laca could be a differential if you can stretch a bit?

        3. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Probably a bit but I'd say they will score

        4. tucaoneo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          I am considering. Liverpool has the shortest turnaround between GW15 and 16 (62 hours). Liverpool will probably rotate heavily because they need to defeat Napoli next week.

        5. Mo Mané Mo Problems
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          I’m going with it.

          They might lose, but even then I’d back Wilson/Fraser to get an attacking return between them. 10 points from both and I’d be happy, especially on the back of 24.

        6. balint84
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 19 hours ago

          Firmino?

      4. SPorting
        • 7 Years
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Any news on that Ryan assist?

        1. KGFC
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Is it still being assessed?

          1. SPorting
            • 7 Years
            10 days, 20 hours ago

            Probably not. FPL said it was TBC but never came back on it.

            Not sure they can now points and bonuses are added and OR updated.

        2. tucaoneo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Isn't there a rule that FPL scores don't change after the match? Remember when Kane claimed Eriksen's goal...

          1. SPorting
            • 7 Years
            10 days, 20 hours ago

            See above. Official FPL Twitter said it was TBC but they never gave it.

            Bit odd that they decide it's an assist but need to look again then nothing happens.

        Tripps or Robbo on wc?
        (Have TAA and Kane if it matters)

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Tripps for me

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Will be rotation with Tripps probably also with Robbo but I think he will play more games

        3. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          It matters that you have TAA, it doesn’t that you have Kane.
          Trips

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Is Snoddgrass actually a viable alternative as a Kane enabler?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Close to

        2. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
          • 3 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          He's fair value but you won't want to rely on him for more than the odd assist

        3. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 days, 20 hours ago

          Thanks guys. For me it's either Kane or Wilson on WC so basically

          Schindler + Snoddy + Kane or

          Laporte + Eriksen + Wilson

          Kind of leaning towards the latter as it's well distributed but I also like the Auba/Kane captain rotation

            That’s intrinsically linked to the question.

          Because or Arnies injury I think I will have both this weekend

      8. Tshelby

        What to do with this lot?

        1.2 ITB
        1FT

        Fab, Hamer
        Alonso, Robbo, Doherty, Bennett*, AWB
        Salah, Son, Sane, Richarlison, Billing*
        Ings*, Auba, Arnie*

        Seems like my bench is totally useless

      9. EL tridente
        • 1 Year
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        Have 3.1 in the bank
        A) Arni and Fraser to Wilson and D Silva (Will play with 4 midfielders)
        Or
        B) Arni and Gunnarson to Succes and Sane (Will keep Fraser and play with 5 ind the mid)

        1. Hansel
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          B

      10. Totally Hammered
        • 5 Years
        10 days, 20 hours ago

        I believe so, he certainly has the place for now whilst Yarmalenko is out, he seems to be a favourite of Pelboy who even played him in a Mid 3 a few games back when Noble was suspended..

        What are the big EOs this week?

          Kane, Alonso, Sterling, Arnie, Richarilson, and Salah.

        1 FT 0.7m ITB

        Fabianksi Patricio
        Alonso Robbo TAA AWB Doherty
        Salah Sane Richarlison Gudmundsson Hojbjerg
        Kane Arnie Jimenez

        If Salah blanks tonight I think it's time to downgrade and then upgrade Arnie to Aubam or Laca for a hit.

        A) Salah & Arnie --> Aubam & 9.5m MD
        B) Salah & Arnie --> Laca & 11.1m MD

        Thoughts on which move and what MD?

        If Wilson weren't a rank killer already, he surely will be with the Arnie injury. He's now the stand out top pick in that price bracket, bar absolutely none. NTIs will be through the roof in the next week or so!

          Mitro is almost an option.

            The nearly man. He's still due that red card, I'm waiting for that 🙂

                yes, and 1 yellow away from suspension...too big of a risk to bring in for me, especially this period of the season

                  Not too afraid of that YC, he will probably get a rest anyways so basically just a forced rest that was due anyways

                      I do because I had him in Dream Team. Got a list of examples of starters coming near that length of time on four without hitting five? Naming one works against backing your opinion.

            Best option after the weekend?
            A. Richarlison and Jimenez (current)
            B. Fraser and Mitrovic
            C. Anderson and Jimenez

            Pick one:

            A. Alonso + Son
            B. Trippier + Sane

            Thanks

            "Most captained" = Aguero.

            Got to be a hell of a lot of dead teams out there.

              Not all dead as the most captained frequently changes.

              was a terrible decision selling him on WC

              depends on team combination.Not a must-keep at all but also not a must get-rid

                Not the hardest of fixtures, but no walk in the park either 🙂

            What clues to Chelsea selection did Guardiola give? Read the article and don't see any?

              *FPL prices are accurate at the time of writing (Tuesday PM).

              The substitutions and rotaton. Dilva might start after being subbed off, Sterling will start after being benched.

            When precisely is the exact last date that we can activate and use our first wildcard this season?

            Gameweek 19: 26 Dec 11:30
            Gameweek 20: 29 Dec 14:00

              Before GW20:

              The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season, once in the first half of the season (before 29 Dec 14:00) and once in the second half of the season.

            I wouldn't be surprised by a front 3 of Sane Sterling Mahrez against Chelsea, if Kun is still out.

                    Fixtures aren't great but I'm not convinced there is a better option. I'll probably bring in Gudmudsson as my 5th mid to rotate with Wilson for the tougher matches.

                    Add Duffy to the list of trolls this season (perhaps only in my experience).

                    Got him in after their mini run of cleanies. Didn't get a return at all and benched him for his goal at the weekend.

                      Works for me. He's already been subbed in twice for the final third and put up double digit hauls.
