FPL Question Time – What to do with Man City players for Blank Gameweek 27

Fantasy Premier League managers are starting to ponder how best to handle Blank Gameweek 27.

Manchester City, Chelsea, Everton and Brighton all have no fixture on the weekend after next, which will affect our transfer plans.

We’ve asked our panel what their plans are…

Who’s on the panel this week?

Simon March – Former FPL champion who won the title in 2014/15. Has regularly contributed to these pages ever since.

Ben Crabtree – Another FPL title winner, who secured the crown in the 2016/17 campaign.

David Munday – editor of Fantasy Football Scout, a man who spends too much time in the members area for his own good.

Question 1 – Simon

David Peter: With Mane matching Salah outcome, is it time to jump ship?

Simon: “It’s easy to see the appeal of switching Salah to Mane given that the latter is a lot cheaper and, on a points-per-million basis, offers greater value for money.

“At the same time though, there is a feeling that we’ve ‘been here before’ with these two and, the last time at least, it ended up being a fairly decisive victory for Salah.

“He’s more expensive, definitely, but he’s also scored almost 50 points more than Mane already this season.

“In fact, from a pure points-scoring perspective, Salah isn’t just the best Liverpool asset but he is, arguably, the best option of any player full stop.

“However, it would be wrong to say that there aren’t potential advantages to be gained in switching Salah to Mane, it really depends on what you do with the extra money.

“For example, for me, it would allow an easy upgrade of Richarlison to Sterling and it’s hard to argue that this wouldn’t offer a better combo in the aggregate.

“But would I be more confident in captaining Mane or Sterling over Salah long term? Probably not. Salah’s consistency in terms of starts and returns gives him an almost unique advantage in that respect.

“Also, with so many good budget or mid-priced options currently available, and so few heavy-hitters demanding our attention, it’s debatable whether we even really need the extra money right now.

“If managers can achieve the same key player upgrades with Salah as they can without him, and without severely weakening their teams, then there isn’t as much of an advantage in making the switch.

“Of course, this will be different for every manager so the key question anybody considering this move needs to ask themselves is whether, for their team, the potential advantage is big enough to justify the risk of getting rid of the current highest-scoring, highest-owned player.”

Question 2 – David

Claremount Crusaders: If, like a lot of managers, I have three Liverpool and two Manchester United players, plus those who don’t have a fixture, is it best to play the Free Hit chip for Blank Gameweek 27?

David: “I’d be lying if I said the Free Hit chip hadn’t crossed my mind for Blank Gameweek 27.

“Like many Fantasy managers, I am currently in possession of Richarlison and Lucas Digne, while Leroy Sané is my Manchester City asset of choice.

“On current form, none of these options is hugely appealing in the short-term at least and I’m keen to offload them.

“However, I’m also faced with the dilemma of having to field four key players in one unpredictable match, with Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford all in action at Old Trafford.

“The first obvious problem is that I don’t have a stand-out captain candidate with Liverpool away from home and Manchester United going up against that mean Reds’ defence.

“If I was playing the Free Hit, I’d be looking to get in maybe Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexandre Lacazette for Arsenal’s home match with Southampton.

“However, I have to remember that while my squad doesn’t look in fantastic shape for the next round of fixtures, I still have 10 active players, which for a Blank Gameweek is a decent amount. I’d be surprised if the vast majority of Fantasy managers weren’t in a similar situation to that.

“Looking ahead to Blank Gameweeks 31 and 33, I could not be confident that I’ll be able to guarantee 10 active players, with more than four teams expected to miss games at that stage of the season.

“For that reason, I think the best course of action is to use my Free Transfers to plug the gaps in terms of players who Blank in Gameweek 27 and holding the Free Hit chip for a later date when it could have a bigger effect on my squad.”

Question 3 – Ben

Tom: With Richarlison not producing the goals anymore and an upcoming Blank Gameweek, who would you look to in the mid-price midfielder market, around the £7.0m mark?

Ben: “I’m in the boat with many other frustrated managers who own Richarlison and would have sold five weeks ago if the Double Gameweek had not been on the horizon.

“After the disappointment of Gameweek 25, the early sub against Watford and now a Blank Gameweek there’s no excuses to delay disposing of him any longer.

“From my watchlist, I have three main contenders to don the FC Crab Dogg colours.

“Felipe Anderson has a great immediate fixture in Fulham where they seem very weak down Anderson’s side.

“His fixtures after that are very good bar Manchester City away which comes immediately after but it’s not a game in which he can’t get attacking returns.

“His playing form is maybe a little better than his points form but West Ham have had a few harder games recently in contrast to their four easy games in the next five.

“I’d feel hard done by with less than 20 points over the next five games with potentially 30-35 possible if West Ham click again.

“Diogo Jota is the second of my main three candidates. His immediate fixture in Bournemouth away is decent.

“It wouldn’t surprise if Wolves don’t score and it wouldn’t surprise me if they score three. After that, they have two good fixtures but this is followed by a run of games that may mean you want to take him out, so potentially Jota is a short term option.

“He looks a bit stronger and like he’s adjusted to the Premier League, so I predict Jota’s points range to be 12-25 points over the next five games.

“Option number three is James Maddison at Leicester. Crystal Palace at home is next up which is quite a good fixture but the Eagles are quite strong defensively, especially if James Tomkins is back from injury for the game.

“After that, his fixtures offer strong potential to keep in until Gameweek 34 or 35.

“Performance-wise, Maddison rarely disappoints me but for FPL points he only has 11 in the last five games.

“Claude Puel appears to be the only person who believes he deserves rotation but as his opinion directly affects Maddison’s points, it is a concern.

“Leicester are playing well enough in my opinion and with their fixtures, I can see an upturn in points for Maddison.

“My current line of thought is to go for Anderson but I may switch to Maddison before the deadline.

“Ryan Fraser and Pascal Groß could come into my thinking but tricky upcoming fixtures for one and team form plus minutes issues for the other is tempering interest at the moment.”

Question 4 – David

Sam: What should we do with our Man City assets from GW27 onwards when they have no fixture?

David: “I think the right call on each Manchester City option depends on which player we’re talking about.

“For example, I think if I had Sergio Aguero right now I’d be benching him for Gameweek 27.

“No player has had more shots on target than Aguero in the last four Gameweeks, and his regularity of starts even across all three fixtures in Gameweeks 25 and 26 show he is the number one forward at Manchester City once again.

“I know that you could do an easy switch for Aubameyang for the Blank, but you are going to want Aguero straight back the following week.

“Booking in a future transfer could leave you with problems if you end up with injuries or bans elsewhere in your squad after Gameweek 27.

“With Raheem Sterling, it’s another judgement call as he has the potential to be important for you after the Blank Gameweek, so could be worth benching.

“However, his underlying statistics don’t quite compare to Aguero, with just four accurate shots in the last four Gameweeks. For that reason he doesn’t feel quite as essential for a transfer back in after Blank Gameweek 27 if you wanted to move him out.

“Outside of that, I think you can get away with ditching Manchester City options this week, especially if it involves moving on Leroy Sané.

“With the Champions League returning for the defending champions there will certainly be a greater risk of rotation for all their players so taking some time to suss out who the new favourites are during the busy period could help you avoid being stung by ‘Pep Roulette’.”

            Selling Sterling with 28-30 fixtures is not a good idea

            1. mlm

                If get auba for gw27-28, then i will get aguero on gw29

                  I will have Sterling and Aguero for 28... West Ham at Etihad

                      It is a dilemma for me, sterling or aguero?

                      Aguero: Safe pick
                      Sterling: Differential

              Just watched the United highlights. They seem like soft goals to me, especially the second how Mbappe gets between the center backs there. Or is that being harsh? Matic very poor on the first. That ball should have been cleared if he was half awake.

                Too much speed and splits them apart -Mbappe.. great ball across the six yard box. First goal should have been prevented

                Man Utd are just so crap at defending. Solskjaer needs to be more adept in his tactics.

                It was a big difference in class. PSG was technically better in every position

                Pure speed...just a few inches past the toes of the defender. DiMaria had about 20 passes mishit...but that one was perfectly struck.

              Schar or Lascelles?

              1. Gabistuta
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Lascelles

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  If it makes the choice any easier Shar is on 8 yellow cards to Lascelles 3.

                  Hey guys, whose the better pick to move in between Anderson or Maddison to replace Richarlison?

                      Hazard > Mane or Richarlison > Fanderson/Antonio?

                        • 4 Years
                        3 months, 8 days ago

                        For 27, definitely Felipe vs Fulham who have the worst defence going around right now.

                        1. Kiwivillan

                          3 months, 8 days ago

                          Had a look last 6 game weeks 7 shots 1 on target. Antonio and Noble more on target.

                          1. BIG TONES
                            • 4 Years

                            I judge my players more by eye test than stats, guess that makes us have different approaches, but that's ok!

                            Anderson is the main man for West Ham and think he will rip Fulham a new one - they are especially bad down the flank he plays on.

                            Will be a decent rank jump if you own him for a haul imo as some managers struggle to put out a solid XI with differentials. (majority of teams have 3x LIV + Pogba and Rashford in a tough fixture for both sides).

                            Lol you're always so resolute with your opinions. Didn't you recommend Lingard over Pogba a few weeks ago because Pogba was just a CDM?

                            FAnderson has much better assist potential than goal potential. He's also just coming back into form so arguably not that useful to just look at shots in the last 6...

                            1. Kiwivillan
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 8 days ago

                              I recommended Lingard over Pogba on previous season form and price point and underestimated how much negative effect Mourinho had on Pogba. I did Lingard>Pogba trade after 1 game

                              1. JasonG123
                                • 5 Years
                                3 months, 8 days ago

                                All I'm suggesting is that you're always so certain about your opinions and almost stubborn without listening to counter-arguments. It is a perfectly valid position to not want to get FAnderson, but the certainty of language you use is problematic.

                            2. Kiwivillan
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                              3 months, 8 days ago

                              Anderson was peak popular halfway through 11-19 when he scored 7 goals and 2 assists. Season total 8 goals 4 assists. People aren't buying for assist potential surely?

                              1. JasonG123
                                • 5 Years
                                3 months, 8 days ago

                                It is usually better to look at xG and xA rather than actual goals/assists. FAnderson has outperformed his xG and underperformed his xA over the season.

                                Over the season he has 4.27 xG (8 actual goals) and 5.28 xA (3 actual assists, 1 FPL assist). Think this will correct itself and we'll see him get more assists from now.

                              A little while off still, but thinking about placing a sneaky bet on Chelsea to beat City in the League Cup Final. It will be the only game Chelsea's players will be motivated to win on account of personal glory. City are definitely a beatable side as well.

                                  On paper yes, but form book means nothing in a final.

                                Interesting. Comparison tool Robbo vs Pereira last 6 game weeks

                                Pereira 59% to 41% +8 key to +3 key

                                    Very tempted by Pereira. Playing as a winger and incredible set of fixtures.

                                      So bad that mistake for Eriksen goal though. If I was going to get would have to move before price rise as only exact money and not planning on any hits

                                        Yeah, he's certainly not an asset defensively...he's been targeted a few times by teams and badly exploited.

                                    Robbo has much higher potential to have a cs
                                    But by comparing attacking return, i think we should compare pereira, kola, digne, doherty

                                    Pereira definitely worth a nudge. Easy transfer for Digne owners

                                    No reason to limit it to the last 6 gameweeks. Robbo and Pereira's roles have not changed in that time.

                                    Robbo has 0.21 xA compared to 0.12 for Pereira over the season. He also has a much higher chance of a clean sheet. However, both are great options and Pereira will be coming into my team in the next couple of weeks.

                                      Was a mistake. I did last 6 home averages because Leicester nice 3 in next 4. Only compared with Robbo as a curiosity. I don't pay much attention to season averages as recent form more relevant.

                                        Not really more relevant since Robbo is still getting forward as much as he was in the first few weeks. Generally, form is less relevant for defenders compared to other positions. Instead, by limiting it to the last 6 you're looking at too small a sample size.

                                      Got Pereira this gw. Thank you for stats kiwi.
                                      He should be able to replicate same over next 6-8 gw's with easy fixtures.

                                        I think Pereira will get forward against teams that don't have speedy wingers he has to sit back with and defend.

                                            3 months, 8 days ago

                                            Actually Chilwell gets into promising positions more than Pereira but lacks final delivery.

                                            1. Kiwivillan

                                              Chilwell more goal scoring opportunities but far less assist potential. Might have to go for Chilwell unless I got Pereira before price rise which will probably be before cup games

                                                  I've sold Digne who was blank anyway so did it early

                                                I actually prefer Chilwell unless Pereira is playing well forward. Last match Chilwell got his head on a few corners in the box...hadn't seen him do that before.

                                                  I kind of like Maguire, feel he has at least a couple of more goals in him for the run in. Would go for him over Chilwell but Pereira offers the most value as things stand.

                                                  I think David's answer is a little misleading and cherry-picking. Sterling has much greater assist potential. In a vacuum, I do agree that Aguero is a better option, but it is very very marginal. Arguably, the fact that there are better budget forwards compared to mids makes Sterling the better option.

                                                        i did richarlison >> moutinho this morning, frees up enough funds for Kun next gameweek, providing he only rises 0.1 more....

                                                        good plan??

                                                          Good plan...as long as the idiots stop buying Aguero for his upcoming Blank.

                                                      Everyone has been pushing FAnderson against Fulham but not sure long term unless he adds some FPL pts to his game. Smooth player though.

                                                      There is no ideal/obvious option. FAnderson is the best of a bad lot imo.

                                                      Thanks all, Anderson seems to be the obvious choice Thinking Antonio or Maddison might be decent differentials for the next few gws

                                                    When TAA went injured I got Alisson in...but would rather have TAA at 0.8 cheaper to cover Liverpool D plus attacking returns. Now I have to spend 2 transfers in the upcoming weeks to get that right.

                                                      Not worth the transfers. You've made your bed.

                                                        Might well stick with Alisson

                                                      Worth to -4 for Rashford=>Lacazette(c)?

                                                        Rashford is pretty much the best player to own.

                                                        would you rather have Kolasinac or Perreira?

                                                          Pereira

                                                          Kola comes into the hoax category like I have fabianski in

                                                            How about Almiron for a naughty punt??? Fixtures are sensational and he could be an oop

                                                              A risk, unproven in the EPL but many expectations

                                                            Getting Maguire is so tempting but is Perreira or Chilwell a better option?

                                                              Pereira is a better option full stop imo

                                                            Does Pogba's red card mean he will miss any PL games?
