Gameweek 27 blank all but confirmed for City after nine-goal victory

Manchester City are set to have a blank in Gameweek 27 after hammering Burton Albion 9-0 in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final on Wednesday evening.

The question is not whether the Citizens will make the final – of course, they will – but when their league match against Everton, currently scheduled for Saturday 23 February, will now take place.

City also reached the final of the EFL Cup in 2017/18, with their scheduled Premier League encounter against Arsenal simply moving to the following Wednesday and both teams avoiding an FPL blank.

That isn’t an option this season, with City’s Gameweek 28 fixture against West Ham arranged for Tuesday 26 February.

Pep Guardiola’s side are also in action in the days leading up to the EFL Cup final, taking on Schalke in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday 20 February.

Gameweeks 32 and 35 have been widely mooted as double Gameweeks, though there is the possibility of City’s trip to Goodison Park being tagged onto another round of fixtures: Gameweek 25 being one such option, though that would necessitate hasty re-arrangement and neither club to be involved in an FA Cup fourth-round replay.

Our preliminary guide to the possible blanks and doubles in the months ahead can be viewed here.

Manchester City 9-0 Burton Albion

  • Goals: Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m), Gabriel Jesus (£10.1m) x4, Oleksandr Zinchenko (£4.7m), Phil Foden (£4.6m), Kyle Walker (£6.4m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m)
  • Assists: David Silva (£8.5m) x2, Leroy Sane (£9.5m) x3, Riyad Mahrez x2, Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva (£7.5m)

While they have encountered limited opposition in Rotherham United and Burton Albion in the last five days, that City have hit 16 goals without reply suggests some of the swagger that was so badly lacking in December has returned to the Etihad.

The narrow Gameweek 21 victory over Liverpool is no doubt City’s most significant result over the last week but the manner of this latest success, a nine-goal demolition of Nigel Clough’s League One outfit, would have further encouraged owners of the reigning champions’ Fantasy assets.

Wednesday night’s 9-0 win was done without the services of Raheem Sterling (£11.3m), Ederson (£5.6m), Aymeric Laporte (£5.9m), John Stones (£5.2m) and Fernandinho (£5.3m), who were either unused substitutes or rested completely.

Sergio Aguero (£11.2m) and Vincent Kompany (£5.2m) were also missing, with Guardiola revealing both players were unavailable to him:

Almost everybody is fit except Sergio and Vincent. I make a selection, for example, Kevin [De Bruyne] and David [Silva] in the last weeks haven’t played too much and need the rhythm.

Kevin has had four, five months injured so he needs minutes. He had 70 minutes last game and today more minutes.

Aguero is thought to only be suffering from a cold, though official word is awaited on both the Argentinean forward and Kompany.

When interviewed after the match, the City boss said the magnitude of his side’s victory means he can afford to blood a second-string starting XI for the return leg in a fortnight’s time:

We spoke about that at half-time – to play simple, let them run and try to score more goals. It’s the best way to respect the competition and respect the opponents.

If you are 4-0 up and forget to continue, you don’t have respect for the competition or your opponent. The best way is do what we have to do.

We spoke about travelling to Burton with as big an advantage as possible but we didn’t expect this. It’s good for us because we can play the second team and players who don’t play regularly. In this incredible schedule, we have a little bit of a break in that week to prepare for the other competitions.

That second leg at the Pirelli Stadium falls in between Gameweek 23 and FA Cup fourth round weekend, so Guardiola’s team selection at Huddersfield Town on Sunday week should be largely unaffected by any subsequent midweek distraction.

Gabriel Jesus (£10.1m) was the headline-maker last night, scoring four goals in the space of 35 minutes and registering a slightly fortunate assist for substitute Phil Foden‘s (£4.6m) strike.

This was exactly the sort of confidence boost the Brazilian striker required after his hit-and-miss performances of late, which included a profligate display in the 7-0 win over Rotherham on Sunday.

Even ignoring his four-goal salvo, the Brazil international’s movement and sharpness were far more encouraging up front – though again, some allowance has to be made for the calibre of City’s latest opponents.

As he so often does with his squad players, Guardiola stressed the value of Jesus to his side after full-time:

Strikers need to score goals, Gabriel Jesus has had chances in the last few games and today he has scored. He is so important.

Kevin De Bruyne (£9.7m) and David Silva (£8.5m) were predictably far too good for their opposite numbers to handle, though Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m) deserves credit for his own creative display at the base of the central midfield three: the Germany international kickstarting the moves that led to two of City’s goals with some excellent passes.

Many of City’s goals had a similar feel, with incisive balls from deep being sprayed towards “inside forward” areas and the assists coming from those zones.

That creativity from deep is something City were lacking during their loss of form in December and the return to fitness of De Bruyne and Silva is a huge bonus on that front.

Leroy Sane (£9.5m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) didn’t have to break a sweat on the flanks but Sane was perhaps the more impressive of the two, registering a hat-trick of assists before his withdrawal midway through the second half.

That Mahrez has played 180 minutes in the two domestic cup fixtures on Sunday and Wednesday (Sane 99, Sterling 57) suggests he will be the fall guy on the flank when City entertain Wolves on Monday evening.

Sane’s pitch-time could once again be affected in the medium-term, however, with Benjamin Mendy (£6.2m) closing in on a return.

Speaking on Tuesday, Guardiola said of the French defender:

He’s much better. He’s training alone. Two weeks, three weeks maybe [until he returns].

Oleksandr Zinchenko (£4.7m) played the full 90 minutes at left-back last night, though Fabian Delph (£5.3m) – on the bench after the completion of his three-match ban – could return to that position in Gameweek 22.

HOW THE GOALS WERE SCORED

1-0: David Silva’s pinpoint cross from the left was headed home by De Bruyne from ten yards out.

2-0: Sane’s shot from a narrow angle was saved after an incisive pass from Gundogan, the ball popping up kindly for Jesus to head into an empty net.

3-0: David Silva’s ball across the six-yard box was controlled by Jesus, who took his time before firing in off Bradley Collins’ left-hand post.

4-0: Sane’s ball inside from the left flank was met by Zinchenko, whose attempted cross from 25 yards out looped straight into the net.

5-0: David Silva’s pass released Mahrez on the right of the box, with the Algerian’s cross met by a Jesus header from seven yards out.

6-0: After having an initial shot saved, Jesus’ attempted follow-up rolled into the path of Foden, who stroked home from the edge of the six-yard box.

7-0:  Mahrez’s ball from deep released Sane on the left side of the box and the German winger nutmegged his marker with a deft pass into the path of Jesus, who scored his fourth of the evening with a flicked finish.

8-0: David Silva’s pass released Mahrez on the left of the box, with the Algerian winger’s cut-back being cushioned home by Walker from eight yards out.

9-0: Bernardo Silva’s ball from the left flank was finished at the second attempt by Mahrez eight yards out after the Algerian had initially miskicked.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Muric; Walker (Danilo 74′), Otamendi, Garcia, Zinchenko; De Bruyne (Foden 58′), Gundogan, David Silva; Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Sane (Bernardo Silva 66′).

    Fab
    TAA - Digne - Pereira

      May as well.

      Ings out for another weeks I believe, so it's not like he's going to helping you out with any points in that time.

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers will have 2 FT following week.

    2. Totti
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      owning almost the same team 🙂
      except doherty instead of periera and femenia instead of bennett 🙂

      and 2 ft also 🙂

      thinking to do:
      son and anderson -> sterling and camarasa
      or
      son and kane -> aguero and sane
      or
      kane and anderson -> aguero and D.silva

      and next week do aguero -> kane

      1. Bobby_Baggio
        • 8 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Hmmm I really think Kane or son will do well so I personally wouldn't want to get rid of them.

        1. Totti
          • 3 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          but man city coverage is essential plus son is the last game for him and against man u

          1. Bobby_Baggio
            • 8 Years
            11 months, 4 days ago

            Yes but the people you want to remove could easily do well if not better then the city players

    3. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      I'd do Anderson to Richarlison for this week. Then transfer out Son and Ings next week for Rashford & 7.8 or below as a placeholder until when Son comes back. Maybe Lucas Moura?

  2. vardys party
    • 4 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    A. Salah, Jimenez, Bamba
    B. Salah, Deeney, Digne

    Best front 5? Got Pogba, Salah and Aubameyang in all of them.

    1) Hazard, Eriksen, Camarasa, Aguero and Kamara
    2) Hazard, Rich, Brooks, Kane and Kamara
    3) Sané, Brooks, Camarasa, Kane and Rashford

    On wildcard and struggling to make a decision.

    1. Bobby_Baggio
      • 8 Years

      A

    2. Zladan

      3 but I’d rather Haz than Auba.

      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      i wouldnt have hazard on a wildcard.....Chelsea started really well this season, something has gone wrong along the way and they arent scoring so freely anymore, this coincides with hazards drop in form. dont look at overall points , if you look since gw 8 hes scored 2 goals , both away. so 2 goals in 13 matches..not enough for 11 million imo

      i would go with 3.
      Kane, auba and even sterling will score more goals than him as long as chelsea are playing this way. i would even go as far as saying sane and mane better options as they are playing in teams that play more free flowing attacking football.

      1. La Roja
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Since GW 8 he scored 2 goals?

        Think again

        1. joeydelucchi
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          oh my mistake 3....now he's a must have!

  5. Zladan
    • 2 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    If, like me, you owned the following:

    Hazard
    Salah
    Richarlison
    Kane

    Who would you captain?

    I’ve switched between the top 2 on numerous occasions. Most ML teams do not even own Salah.

    1. Subzero (-4)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Salah 100% mate. Hazard is to difficult to nail as captain. He normally gets nothing or a big haul, salah very likely to get at least 8 points.

      1. Monkey magic 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah definitely Salah more consistent, Hazard is a good option but can’t be trusted.

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Surprisingly Salah has actually blanked more often than Hazard this season, but you look at the games he has (City home and away, United home, Everton home, Arsenal away, Chelsea away, Spurs away, Leicester away), and it suggests he'll get returns against Brighton, despite them being reasonable at home defensively. I guess it just depends if you think Chelsea and Hazard can start firing.

      2. Zladan
        • 2 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Cheers. I just know everyone else in ML will captain Hazard at home to Newcastle.

    2. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years

      I have those 4 as well - I think it is time for a dice as I've given up trying to get the (C) right myself every week...

    Mitro last 6:

      Also Burnley performing slightly better too. I hope so I got Mitro in tobolay specifiaclly in the HUD, bur and BRI games he succeeded first time round hoping for better this week

    Thoughts on this WC

    Etheridge, Button

    Digne , TAA, , Pereira , Bednarek, Bennett

    Hazard, Salah , Sane , Richarlison , Camarasa

    Aubameyang , Deeney , Rashford

    I have 1.3 m in bank . Next week Aubameyang for Kane

    1. Monkey magic 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Like it, good plan for Kane too.

  9. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Bench 1 of Martial or Anderson:

    Etheridge
    AWB - Kola - Digne - Alonso
    Camarasa - ????? - Richarlison - Hazard
    Auba - Kane

    Hamer - ????? - Kamara - Doherty

    1. Teddy Brewski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Neither in my opinion. Camarasa or AWB

      Bench Martial if you are set on that decision

    2. rocrocodile
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Martial over Anderson, but I would rather bench AWB or even Kolasinac.

    3. Monkey magic 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Probably Martial, more chance of a cameo, Spurs have a better defence and Wham are at home.

      1. Monkey magic 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Also agree with the above points could bench AWB and play both.

  10. La Roja

    Batshuayi back to Chelsea, Valencia confirmed

    1. Ask Yourself

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years

      Now all Chelsea need to do is buy Mertens and they can have a Belgian front three that will click for them.

      1. La Roja
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Or benteke

      Can’t believe I’m the first of 4 to say Kamara here. No brainer imo. Snodgrass is poor.

      Burnley are a bad bad side.

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        burnley have been solid defensively as of late

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years

        Is Kamara a starter?

        1. Zladan
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          I think the fall out is over. When he came on v Arsenal he looked surprisingly very sharp. Arsenal’s quick fire 2 goals came against the run of play since Kamara came on.

          I think he is a better option than Snodgrass even if he only comes on for 30 mins.

          The Fulham forum I go on occasionally seems to think he will.

    11 months, 4 days ago

    How important do you think City coverage is going forward? And how would you fit Sané (or anybody else) into this team? I'm rolling my transfer this week, so I will have 2FTs going into GW23.

    I'm considering just to stay entire clear of City till the blank is done. Not because I don't fancy them to do well, but because it means losing another (presumably) valuable asset.

    What do you think?

    Pat / Hamer
    Robertson / Digne / Kola / AWB / Schindler
    Salah / Hazard / Pogba / Richarlison / Kayal
    Kane / Rash / Jimenez

      I’m thinking the same with City assets. I think they will do well but if you don’t own them or aren’t bringing any in this week then it’s:

      hud
      new
      ARS
      CHE
      Blank

      Not the worst fixtures but only four games until a blank with the Chelsea game likely to be a tight affair.

      If you have free transfers it may be worth using them on City but if like myself you have other fires then maybe waiting until after the blank is the best course of action.

        Yeah, I would definitely want some City in there. But it feels like a bit weird time bringing players in. I guess it all depends on how guys like Pogba, Hazard and Rashford look in the next couple of GWs. Haz -> Sané/Sterling is tempting, but right now, I think it's a coin toss.

    Best move?

    A) McCarthy >> Guaita (Roll FT)

    B) A and Kola >> TAA

    C) Kane / Anderson / Hennessy >> Arnie / Sterling / Alisson -4

    McCarthy
    Alonso • AWB • Kolasinac
    Salah• Pogba • Rich • Anderson • Sane
    Kane • Rashford

    Hennessy / Kamara / Doherty / Bennet.

    thoughts on anderson?

    if you own him - you looking to keep/sell?

    arsenal defence isn't exactly the tighest in the prem, but I'm eyeing up rich/siggy for their really good run of fixtures in the short term..

    1. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      thinking about the same, Anderson to Richarlison.
      It's a question of who will score more in the next 3 GWs and I think Richarlison will edge it

    2. After Supper Ghost Stories
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Keep Anderson for this week definitely - poor Arsenal defence - think WHU have a couple of goals in them.

      richarli makes sense

  16. Just Kreuzing
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Hazard to Sané for cash or not ?

    1. rocrocodile
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Hazard over Sané for me this week. But what are you going to spend those extra funds on?

    2. lindeg
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      never

    3. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No

    4. Just Kreuzing
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Ings to Rashford with funds

  17. Big Weng
    • 1 Year
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Son > Sterling or Sane?

    1. Big Weng
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      (already got kane)

      1. Big Weng
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        If I do Sane, I'll have enough Cash for Haz > Salah next week

        1. George James
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          This

      2. After Supper Ghost Stories
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Both good but I'd go for Sane (though got Sterling)

    2 free transfers are too much! I don't know what to do. Please help me!

    My team:
    Fab
    Rob - Digne - Kolas
    Hazard - Anderson - Rich - Fraser
    Kane - Auba - Rashford

    (Patricio) - Doherty - Obiang - Fernández
    1,1 ITB

    I want to transfer in Salah and considering the following options:
    Moderate changes:
    1. Haz+Anderson ->Salah+Milivojevic/Gudmundsson/Redmond/Deulofeu
    2. Auba+Anderson -> Salah+Jimenez
    3. Team revolution: Haz+Kane -> Salah+Aguero
    4. "Relax and enjoy" option: Fernández ->Bednarek

    Friends, really need your help!

    1. After Supper Ghost Stories
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Keep Haz for this week, my view is that Brighton won't be broken down too easily. Go for Salah next week? Wouldn't do 3.

  19. After Supper Ghost Stories

    Hi, help needed please:

    Would you do for -4:

    OUT: Laporte and Wilson
    IN: Trent and Rashford

    Got exact funds but no Liverpool players and got Pogba.

    Thanks.

      Double United attack vs Spurs seems a bit much. I have the same 2.

    1. La Roja
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Is this is a new one TM? I got eliminated on GW 16 when I sold Salah for -4 😛

  21. AuFeld
    • 3 Years
    11 months, 4 days ago

    Kane and Salah owners, who are you going to captain for GW 23?

    Kane away to ful and Salah at home to CRY.

    1. La Roja
      • 7 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Let’s get gw22 out of way first 😛

    2. Smurf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Most likely Kane. Purely down to a gut feeling he will do well in that game based on nothing but my gut.

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Kane

    4. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Probably Salah given Son won't play.

    5. Bumbaclot
      • 9 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Salah

  22. HAMMERTIME107

    £0 mil in the bank but 2 free transfers!

    Fabianski
    Digne | Wan-Bissaka | Pereira
    Mane | Richarlison | Sane | Martial
    Kane | Rashford | Aubameyang

    Speroni | Billing | Dunk | Targett

  24. Whazza

    WC TEAM #4813, any suggestions? 0.4 banked.

    Guaita
    VVD TAA AWB
    Salah Hazard Sane Richarlison
    Auba Arnie Jimenez

    Patricio-Puncheon-Doherty-Bednarek

    1. Amey

      robbo over vvd.

      1. Whazza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        He isn't worth 0.4 imo, prefer goal threat to assist threat

      Will kamara start this weekend ??

      1. lindeg

        50/50

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        I don't think so.
        He started the game's when sessengon was injured.
        Now that everyone is fit he will start on bench IMO.

        Friends of Fulham forum seem to think so.

          The majority think he'll start ahead of Schurrle, with Sessegnon on the other flank and Mitrovic through the middle.

      Hi everyone. Losing some ground in the mini league and wondering if there is anything glaring i need to do here:

      Button
      Vvd/alderweireld/AWB
      Salah/hazard/richarlison/lingard/
      Kane/deeney/jiminez

      Subs: guita/dunk/docherty/snoddy

      Thanks everyone

        probably think about some alternative Man Utd cover, and start Guiata

    • Hart-ake
      • 2 Years
      11 months, 4 days ago

      So no word on Camarassa in today’s presser?

      1. lindeg
        • 1 Year
        11 months, 4 days ago

        means hes fit

        1. Hart-ake
          • 2 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Hopefully

    • markloe

      Firmino anyone?

      1. AuFeld
        • 3 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        Intrigued, but I would like to see more consistency. Going without a goal or an assist Between GW 6 - 12 is of concern.

        I think he is a better option then Mane.

        1. markloe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          11 months, 4 days ago

          That's probably fair, I'm looking for Hernandez replacements and have just realised I can afford him with a bit of rearranging

    • NeverLucky
      • 1 Year
      11 months, 4 days ago

      Considering a WC option this week. I have two options in mind and would appreciate thoughts.

      Today team:

      Foster/Fabianski
      Doherty/Digne/Van Dijk/Wan-Bissaka/Dunk
      Salah/Hazard/Pogba/Richarlison/Hogg
      Kane/Rashford/Jimenez

      Considered WC team:

      Foster/Allison
      Trippier/Digne/Van Dijk/Wan-Bissaka/David Luiz (so in general a stronger goal/defensive lineup)
      Salah/Hazard/Richarlison/Fraser/Hogg (reduced MF presence)
      Auber/Rashford/Jimenez (switch of Kane to Auber)

      0 in bank after WC.

      Worth it in long run or keep strong with current setup?

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        think WCing that team is a waste

        1. NeverLucky
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Thanks, i also think so, primary reason is my mini league competition is catching up heavily due to defensive line up and Auber over Kane. Think should just keep strong and maybe just do a kane/auber rotation only.

          Appreciate input!

      2. markloe
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        11 months, 4 days ago

        That is just way too much money at the back for me, Allison should be a set and forget at his price so you can downgrade Foster, Trippier is a risk

        1. NeverLucky
          • 1 Year
          11 months, 4 days ago

          Agree overall, same with Sadio input. Thanks.
