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′).

    What do we make of Snodgrass as an option?

    Looking at downgrading Haz for him to free up funds for Arnie > Kane whilst still taking advantage of those west ham fixtures.

      Snodgrass will give you 90% of times assist only .. he plays deep and in central .

    3rd in the world has played an interesting FH... hell of a lot riding on Spurs later!

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      That’ll come back to bite him.

    2. The 5% Team
      2 months, 18 days ago

      he got a very good start at least

  6. ILOVEBAPS

    So looking forward to Kane filling his boots! Feel like I should have TC him!
    Anyone else feeling as confident?

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      No. Not with a lack of form. If he’s scored a few recently I’d be very confident.

      1. ILOVEBAPS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Ok Mr. Horse. I'm still having my parade and you can't rain on it.

        We shall soon see who's the points winner I guess 🙂

          Well I still captained him.

    2. Holmes
      • 5 Years

      i'm never confident with kane, will just take whatever he returns and move on... 😮

    3. NestorC
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Took a gamble with -8 to bring him in, my VC was Arnie so far so good

      1. ILOVEBAPS

        • 6 Years

        #metoo

        Kane(c) Siggy(vc)

    4. Kanchelskis
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I have gambled by not bringing in him at all. Went for Wilson as Aguero replacement and worked out well (didn't cap him though).

      1. ILOVEBAPS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Nice piece of work. I ditched Haz for Siggy and hoping for a win there too.

        1. Kanchelskis
          • 1 Year

          Good luck. Could be huge.

      No, entire GW is riding on Kane and he hasn't exactly passed the eye test recently.

        • 6 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        C'mon Annie! Let's go!!! Rev it up!!
        Kane's getting a brace at least and Max bonus! Can feel it in me waters. 🙂

    1. Kanchelskis
      • 1 Year

      Looking good except Mane. Would also be concerned about Diangana's chance of starting if he is ever needed.

  9. phrampton534

    Best midfield combo (have Sterling and Kane)?

    a) Sigurdsson, Sane
    b) Hazard, Fraser

    Cheers

    1. dee_top
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have Hazard Fraser, but want to have Sterling Fraser

      1. phrampton534
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I'm tending towards losing Hazard as he seems to be off the boil but already have Sterling. Could also go Sane and Fraser of course or Richarlison...

    Anyone else think UTD will actually do alright against Arsenal? I know they’re a bit gash but they do much better in the big games and Mourinho has a crazy record vs Arsenal.

    1. Holmes
      • 5 Years

      i think they will win

    2. King Kohli

      Utd to win 2-1.

      Goals from Martial Lingard Auba

      Don't trust Arsenal myself at OT. we got beat by United's under 21's that one year (Rashfords first season)

    4. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 days ago

      They'll do what Spurs did yeah.

      Back-to-back big games - insanely impressive in the first one; then a bit limp in the follow-up.

      United win, or possibly a gnarly draw. Just hoping there's something for Martial here.

    5. Rupert The Horse

      Not just me then.

      No I think Mourinho’s Jibes at Arsenal and Wenger in the past are going to come back to haunt him 3-1 Arsenal and another nail in Mourinho’s coffin

      Don't think I'd go Richy. Probably Sterling the best bet, strangely. Or maybe a punt on Martial if you have him.

    Sane - Richarlison - Fraser - Anderson - Gunnarsson
    Wilson - Kane - Aubameyang

    1. Gringo Kid

      If you have Ederson you dont need Patricio

        This ^
        And you need Sterling soon so leave some £££

    2. maratus
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I think there whole draft is a bit off.
      If you pick Ederson, then you should just pick 4.0 non playing goalie for sure.

      Robertson possible injury - monitor
      Lack of Alonso is scary.
      No Sterling on WC - Madness.
      Doubling up Bou attackers with those scary fixtures is to risky, i would just settle with Wilson.
      I dont understand Doherty, there are better picks for lower price.

    3. Magic Bean Hunter

    I need to ship Bennett and Robertson. I'm trying to create a decent bench for the busy period.
    What are the best replacements for them both?

    I'm thinking Alderweireld and Doherty..?

    Ryan
    VVD Dunk TAA
    Sigurdsson F.Anderson Sterling Sane Fraser

    Patricio, Bennett, Arnautovic, Robertson

      Also why Robbo?

        • 3 Years

        I'm a little uncomfortable with having a triple Liverpool defence.
        What do you think?

        1. fylde2022
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          * of having 3 Liverpool defenders.
          I didn't mean it sarcastically.

          1. My heart goes Salalalalah
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Alonso and Bennett?

        2. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Ah didn’t even read further than those 2 names. I would take Robbo instead of VVD. Or Trippier. But I understand the rotation is a problem for you.

    3. Kanchelskis
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Good moves if you think Robbo is a rotation risk. Suspect he won't play tonight and that is his rest.

  15. Genji3lade
    • 1 Year

    GTG? Right to keep Martial for Fulham (H) or worth bringing in Anderson?

      GTG, Martial is solid pick for next gw.

      G2g.
      I'd play camarasa over awb.
      WH will score against palace.
      And camarasa is now on penalties 😉

    Is it time to turn back to Mitro? He was absolutely horrible for me early in the season

      Afternext week I think so. Expecting a goal tonight

    2. FPLGraham

      He's pulling me back in again... just that YC worry that it could make him miss one of those great home ties.

  17. chilli con kone

    Whilst any response is merely guess work...how many starts do you think KDB will get over the Xmas period?

    Really just trying to get a hold of whether you think he will be used.for CL and league/FA Cup rather than PL fixtures

    Cheers

    1. Amey
      2 months, 18 days ago

      He shouldn't be rushed back into team imo.
      Not good for his health !
      He'll play cameo from bench imo until next year.

      1. chilli con kone
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Cheers Amey.

        The context is I have been offered Mane for KDB in a big cash draft league.

        Trying to decide whether KDB is worth holding or to cash in but Liverpool have a horrible fixture schedule until new year

        1. Amey
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Hold him imo. He'll be gold after some weeks.

    2. ILOVEBAPS

      2 at most. Surely Pep will use him judiciously and put him into games whenever needed regardless of the fixture. He'll need to rest David Silva. What an embarrassment of riches!

    really got to hand it to bournemouth

    having an unreal season this year, wilson + fraser their talismans at the top of their game

    wilson top of fpl striker rankings for points
    fraser third in fpl midfielders rankings for points

    and on course to beat vardy and mahrez' records at the current rate

    1. Jules Rimet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yes, great WC player enablers

    Thinking of downgrading Arnie to a cheaper striker that I'll usually bench, but someone who has a good chance of getting points as I want to be prepared for rotation this month. Also upgrading McTominay to Felipe Anderson.

    Would you go for Jimenez, or someone cheaper like Success?

    1. nobwak
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Someone you'd usually bench, but has a good chance of getting points = good chance of benching points... surely?

      1. #FPLBhuna
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        success is a good option by this account

      2. stat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Definitely. But I want to have at least two strong subs per week for this period specifically because I have a couple players who could easily be rotated.

        It's either that or buying Kamara and being left with 2.7 ITB with no obvious moves to make.

    2. Carlton_Goal
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Jiminez is a good option to rotate in and out of your team and price is low enough that you don't have a problem benching him in tougher games

      1. stat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        He's definitely a more reliable bench option than someone like Success and I don't need the extra money atm (also planning to do Rich -> Fraser which will give me more ITB)

    3. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 1 Year

      Depoitre

    4. Win'dian
      • 2 Years

      Take this gw, you'd prefer jimenez over success when there re so many rotations

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yep I think I will be going with him
        Cheers everyone

      That's a question, but I forgot the question mark haha

    2. Rupert The Horse

      I never understand why people don’t put their alternative player from the bench with these sorts of questions.

    To bring in Wilson for Jimenez need to downgrade Robertson to Digne. Already have TAA. Is this worth it? Rest of the ML members have Wilson.

    1. Win'dian
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yes, digne and TAA both nice picks and Wilson is well worth it
