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′).

    So, until Mendy will be back is Sane or Sterling more nailed player?

    1. el polako

      Both as important to City's attack and both in great form.
      Cool kids have both 😀

    2. Amey
        8 days, 14 hours ago

        Only nailed player's in City team are Edersom,Fernandinho & laporte to some extent. All others will rotate.
        Sane will play most minutes from 3 winger's imo though. Because of his unparalleled workrate

      • Irbox ⚽

        Sane. Nobody else can provide what he does on the left

          Exactly.

      • Good Kompany
          8 days, 14 hours ago

          Pep’s philosophy is to stretch the play by positioning his wingers as wide as possible to create pockets of space for DSilva and BSilva to play in... Sane seems to be his only real option without Mendy on the left so i’d imagine he will play most games, although Sterling can play on both wings so he could find his minutes being managed a little

        • kime67

          sterling can play on the left. mahrez is the best option at rw

            • 1 Year

            Sterling won't play on the left with Mendy out injured.

              I get what you're saying, but he did against Shakhtar, although it was Zinchenko at LB rather than Delph.

              he might against chelsea. pep trusts mahrez rather than sane when it comes to big games.

        • Demigod Mendy
          • 1 Year

          Sane is a flat track bully so expect him to start against all the bottom teams which is a dream FPL scenario if you own a City attacker.

          1. poottus
            • 3 Years
            8 days, 13 hours ago

            So, some consensus here that Sane will get at least almost the same minutes than Sterling. Or maybe even more minutes than Sterling? Which seems nice taking into account that he is 2 mil cheaper than Sterling..

      • Gudjohnsen

        What to do with Arnie?

        A. Keep
        B. Move to Mitrovic
        C. Move to Zaha
        D. Get Aubameyang or Lacazette for a hit (means downgrading Hazard)
        E. Take a punt for Rashford

        1. altan8797

          Im moving to mitro.

          do we know the scope of arnie's injury?

        It's pretty alarming how quickly we have gone from having loads of budget mids and attackers to having just Wilson AND Fraser worth owning under 7 million. At the same time the increase in number of premiums in startling! Think the glory days of having all funds in defense are now over

          “... Think the glory days of having all funds in defense are now over ...”. Think you might have that backwards - what do the value stats say? :).

        2. My Name Is Prince
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 14 hours ago

          Alonso is the second highest points scorer in the game thus far, only behind Sterling... Robertson and TAA are up there as well, TAA for his price an excellent value, having expesive defs doesn't mean all funds are in defense as defenders are so much cheaper than the attackers...

        3. Irbox ⚽
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 14 hours ago

          Liverpool and City defence essential, and Alonso well his record speaks for itself. Abandon any of these at your peril

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            8 days, 14 hours ago

            I have Ederson, TAA.. Gonna be happy with those 2 for a while and rotate Doherty, Digne, Awb and Diop 🙂

        4. L&MM (Howe to Train you…

          You're right

      • My Name Is Prince
        • 5 Years
        8 days, 14 hours ago

        Which one of these 3 to have alongside with Sterling?

        Haz / Salah / Kane

        And don't just say Kane, he's exactly as overpriced as Salah is... So Haz? With great fixtures after City?

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          8 days, 14 hours ago

          Ask again after tnites games.. Atleast 1 of those 3 will explode

            • 1 Year
            8 days, 14 hours ago

            Most likely to score high tonight is Salah playing non existant Burnley defence this dosent mean however that he is the best pick going forward.

            My money is on Kane.

            1. My Name Is Prince
              • 5 Years
              8 days, 14 hours ago

              This! Tonight has nothing to do with my question, it's long-term and all that!

                I'm on Kane.. Meant ppls answers will change after tnite accordingly

                  • 5 Years

            I have Hazard and wish he gets some points these 2 gws. After that their fixtures are very good

          • Demigod Mendy
            • 1 Year
            8 days, 14 hours ago

            None of them. A Spurs mid with Auba up top is pretty juicy.

            2. My Name Is Prince
              • 5 Years
              8 days, 14 hours ago

              Already have Auba!

          • My Name Is Prince
            • 5 Years
            8 days, 14 hours ago

            I have Salah (C) and Haz tonight and I am hoping for the best, just need to sell Arnie and if I go for Kane means I need to sacrifice one of them... Hence the question...

          • Camzy
            • 8 Years
            8 days, 14 hours ago

            Kane for fixtures.

        4. Demigod Mendy
          • 1 Year
          8 days, 14 hours ago

          Pick one:

          A) Laca and Alli

          B) Kane and Brooks

                • 1 Year
                8 days, 14 hours ago

                Have Sterling and Auba as captaincy options.

                  • 1 Year

                  Then A. No interest in Son?

                    • 1 Year
                    8 days, 14 hours ago

                    I think he's not as nailed as people think he is. Competing with Moura and Lamela, tends to get hooked off early because of his playing style and is one bad performance away from getting the chop.

            I've gone Alli

            1. altan8797

              any reason?

                • 1 Year
                8 days, 14 hours ago

                Plays almost as a 2nd striker. Less rotation prone compared to Son. Goes on a streak of hauls if he hits form.

                1. Demigod Mendy
                  • 1 Year
                  8 days, 14 hours ago

                  Eriksen's appeal is limited to set pieces as he now plays deep. And Trippier is back.

                  8 days, 14 hours ago

                  I'm not sure he's playing as a 2nd striker this season? Seems to be deeper than in previous seasons whenever I've watched him.

                  1. Demigod Mendy
                    • 1 Year
                    8 days, 14 hours ago

                    Played quite high against Chelsea

                      8 days, 14 hours ago

                      True, he did, although he was specifically asked to mark Jorginho which made him go a little higher. I agree he probably is the best option though.

                      1. Demigod Mendy
                        • 1 Year
                        8 days, 14 hours ago

                        Yeah, same thoughts. I don't think he is a ridiculously good option but the best one for me out of Erik, him and Son.

          3. Good Kompany
              8 days, 14 hours ago

              Alli... he plays further forward and always seems to be in the box whenever crosses come in

            How did Brooks look otherwise last night? Clearly Fraser is worth the extra money but still..

              Didn't see the game but his stats were worrying and he got hauled early, which isn't unusual. Back on the bench for me this weekend.

                • 2 Years

                Damn, yeah would bench Fraser also if I had him instead vs Liverpool.. hope Brooks shows some promise

                  I've had him for a while and he's a nice little player, perfect 1st sub, just frustrating when he gets pulled early, but you've gotta remember he's only 5m.

            I have 2 questions.

            1) Is it sensible to bench Alonso this week?
            2) If you had to ditch one, who would it be. Hazard or Salah?

              8 days, 14 hours ago

              Might be the only game worth Benching him for

              Salah

              8 days, 14 hours ago

              1) depends on rest of your defence
              2) Salah but you can lose both as well

            A) Sane + Aubameyang
            B) Sterling + Lacazette

                Yeah looked at those 2 actually, is holding going to keep playing with Monreal due back?

                    Yes fair point I don’t follow them that closely I thought they had a few defensive injuries that’s all.
                    He’s a great shout if he keeps playing. Cheers

            With Arnie out for the foreseeable future, both chicarito and l.perez are same price. who’s bringing in more points?

            1. Demigod Mendy
              • 1 Year
              8 days, 14 hours ago

              Anderson and Snod

              Chicharito will start.

                How long has the FPL price change module been on the right side of this site?

                Haven't noticed it until now, pretty useful bringing that info here.

                Plan is to do Martial > Fraser.

                  Won't ditch Martial before Fulham and Fraser's fixtures aren't exciting.

                    Not this week. I did the hit already of Haz + Arnie > Anderson + Auba. The plan is for next week.

                If Aguero out from Chelsea game, what are the changes ManC front 3 being, Mahrez - Sterling - Sane? Any thoughts?

                  Jesus looked average yesterday so maybe you are onto something.

                  That’s what I’d do if I was pep. Jesus is woeful. More than likely be Sane Jesus Sterling though

                3. Amey
                    8 days, 14 hours ago

                    Jesus will start in that case. Sterling will shift later if he is ineffective which is mostly the case.

                    Ty all. Took Mahrez as a punt before Watford I quess keeping him for Chelsea game and wc after.

                      Don't like the options in that price bracket. March, Kenedy are decent options.

                        But I guess it depends on your definition of "good enough points"

                    Aguero overlooked as Arnie replacement? Two home fixtures coming up after Chelsea game, had his rest and Jesus hasn't looked good.

                    1. Demigod Mendy
                      • 1 Year
                      8 days, 14 hours ago

                      Is he confirmed fit?

                      My one regret on WC is going with Ederson.. Not because I don't want him.. But because I just know that Aguero is going to force his way into my team soon and I've used up my 3rd city spot. Post Chelsea Aguero could be a cheeky differential.

                        Doesn't he like playing at Stamford Bridge? I remember him scoring a hatty against them a while back.

                    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 midfield)

                      I'm also sniffing around Success as an enabler

                      Seems pretty nailed, and they have better fixtures ahead. Not bad as a just in case bench warmer

                    If I save my WC until GW17 I need a forward for 7.7 as a one week punt in Arnies place.
                    Already have Fraser and not keen on doubling up against the best defense in the league.
                    Looking at Andone if Murray is out. Any team playing Burnley right now has a good chance of attacking returns.

                      Not many other decent options at that price range. Mitrovic against United or Zaha against West ham.

                    Downgrading Salah to get Auba, 9.5m budget & I already have Sane.

                    Which do you prefer?

                      Me neither.. The fear of not. Owning him as captain for the next 4.home games made me buckle though

                    Sane to get rested this weekend, worth getting on WC still or hold for a week?

                      I'd be so, so surprised if he doesn't play this weekend, but it's Pep, anything could happen.

                        So is this the best City 11 with Mendy, KDB, Aguero etc out.

                        Ederson
                        Walker, Otamendi or Stones, Laporte, Delph
                        B Silva, Fernandinho, D Silva
                        Sterling, Jesus, Sane

                        If he is rested, who will be City's front 3 you think? I think he will play and gets rested in UCL match
