Sterling stars as De Bruyne jumps back on FPL radars

Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) may have been the top points scorer in Manchester City’s win over Crystal Palace – but he was not the only midfielder to bring in double-figures.

Kevin de Bruyne (£9.7m) put himself right back on the Fantasy Premier League radar with an exceptional performance in time for the end of season run-in.

As we learned yet more about Pep Guardiola’s side at Crystal Palace, this Scout Notes article documents the latest instalment in an ever-changing picture at Manchester City.

Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester City

Goals: Luka Milivojevic (£6.4m) | Raheem Sterling x2 (£11.5m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.9m)

Assists: James McArthur (£4.8m) | Kevin de Bruyne x2 (£9.7m), Leroy Sané (£9.3m)

Sterling was comfortably Manchester City’s chief goal threat in the 3-1 win at Selhurst Park. No player was afforded more big chances, and he was top of the pile for shots in the box and efforts on target too. That certainly bodes well for future attacking returns, but Sterling will continue to have rotation concerns hanging over him.

Despite playing 90 minutes in each of the last two matches, he was named in the starting line-up against Crystal Palace and completed yet another outing. With Manchester City currently 1-0 down to Tottenham Hotspur after the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, it seems highly unlikely that he will be left out of the starting XI for the second leg on Wednesday. That would mean five starts in a row for the Englishman ahead of Double Gameweek 35 when they host Spurs again. It will be interesting to see when Guardiola decides to hand him a rest.

At the very least, Sterling seems to be posing more of a threat than Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) who now has just one goal in the last four Gameweeks. Manchester City’s diminutive midfielder is also getting clear of the Argentinian for underlying statistics too, offering better minutes per chance, minutes per chance created and expected goal involvement (xGI) too.

Aguero continues to have his minutes managed by Guardiola too, without a 90-minute appearance since Gameweek 24. Obviously, that has helped him start more matches than most of his colleagues, but in games where he has not looked his best, like this one, it is frustrating for his owners that he does not stay on the pitch for longer. There were suggestions after the match that Guardiola had taken him off because of an injury, although the Manchester City manager has since confirmed that Aguero does not have a knock.

Coming back into the Fantasy conversation after an incredible performance is de Bruyne. He was easily the best player on the pitch at Selhurst, providing two incisive assists for Sterling and Gabriel Jesus (£9.9m). Amazingly, they were his first two of the season, but the fact that he has struggled with injury for much of the campaign it’s not a huge surprise.

Crucially, de Bruyne’s attacking returns against Crystal Palace were in line with the creative potential he has shown in recent matches. In the four outings in the build-up to Double Gameweek 34, the Belgian had created a chance every 18 minutes, so assists were certainly coming. With four efforts on goal at Selhurst Park, only Sterling had more shots than him too. With six starts in the last seven Gameweeks, and potentially a rest against Spurs given his absence on Tuesday night, de Bruyne could be a key Manchester City midfielder to own between now and the end of the season.

“The last three or four games the way (de Bruyne) played was incredible, we missed him a lot. He has the ability and vision to see passes that other human beings are not able to watch. With him around, our paces and passes in front – especially in the final third – are incredible and today he was so committed to defensive work, winning duels and being in that position. And of course, he is fresh mentally in the legs in those situations. That’s why he made not just the two assists that are so important but in all the other situations that we needed him.” – Pep Guardiola

Given that he missed the Champions League quarter-final first leg, it was no surprise to see Leroy Sané (£9.3m) in the starting line-up at Palace. He has worked his way back into consideration for Premier League matches it seems, with starts in both of the last two matches, after just three appearances between Gameweeks 25 and 32. Crucially, he has attacking returns in both of those, a goal against Cardiff and an assist at Selhurst Park.

The fact that he was able to produce a decent attacking performance despite sharing the left-flank with Benjamin Mendy (£6.1m) is worthy of note. The Frenchman was making his first league start since November and enjoyed nothing more than a solid afternoon. There was some overlap with Sané, but it was mainly the German who provided the width down that side of the pitch.

Elsewhere on the injury front, Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) was back in the side overcoming his yellow flag. He was named among the substitutes and came on for David Silva (£8.5m) in the second half. Meanwhile, Fernandinho (£5.3m) missed out with what Guardiola described as a “short-term” injury which could also make him absent for midweek Champions League action. However, Manchester City did not particularly miss the Brazilian with both de Bruyne and Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m) providing a decent screen for the back-four.

“Yes. (Fernandinho) finished bad against Tottenham. Today he is not fit. It’s short-term.” – Pep Guardiola

Crystal Palace certainly made themselves harder to beat than some were expecting pre-match. They were without James Tomkins (£4.3m) and Mamadou Sakho (£4.9m) and had to field Martin Kelly (£3.9m) and Scott Dan (£4.4m) at centre-back.

The injury problems mounted for the Eagles in the first half when Jeffrey Schlupp (£4.5m) was forced off with a muscle problem. He was replaced by Cheikhou Kouyaté (£4.7m).

The interesting line on Crystal Palace’s attack was that Michy Batshuayi (£6.5m) was benched for Christian Benteke (£6.3m) to get his first start since Gameweek 26. Roy Hodgson explained that he wanted a player who could hold the ball up for his side, which the Belgian did admirably against formidable opponents. The Eagles’ manager also cited Batshuayi’s status as a loan player as a reason for dropping him to the bench, so it will be intriguing to see if that has a prolonged effect on his place in the team as the season winds to a close.

Crystal Palace XI (4-5-1): Guaita; van Aanholt, Dann, Kelly, Wan-Bissaka; Zaha, Schlupp (Kouyaté 22′), Milivojevic, McArthur (Sako 85′), Townsend (Meyer 77′); Benteke.

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Mendy, Laporte, Kompany, Walker; Gündogan, de Bruyne; Sané (Stones 87′), D Silva (B Silva 65′), Sterling; Aguero (Jesus 75′).

    Would you play Wilson or Babel, for next GW?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Wilson for me.

    2. Chester Bennington
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Both if I can

      • Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Wilson just but both if possible

      • Eytexi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Wilson but think both score.

      Bednarek or Yoshida for Dunk?

      1. Eytexi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Bednarek seems safer but very similar.

        Yoshida

      Lose to City and top 4 is probably gone, resulting in the potential departures of de Gea and Pogba.
      Draw to City and Liverpool probably win the title.

      Manchester United fans, I hope you enjoy next week 🙂

      What do you prefer?

      1. bitm2007

        The United fans I know would prefer Pool to win title, so it's win, win or lose, lose for them.

      2. Team Cruel

        Lose to City, win the other four and rely on Arsenal failing to win two of their remaining games.

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 8 Years

          There's so many possibilities 🙂

          1. Team Cruel
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            I'd be shocked if we get anything from City. We are knackered and City will have an extra rest day. Not to mention they are 10x better.

            1. Berbinho's Forehead
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I've got more hope in Spurs nicking points off them than you guys tbh. Anything can happen in a derby though.

              1. Team Cruel
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                If Spurs progress midweek I can see them resting quite a few for the weekend game.

                It's a great race either way. PL needed this after some boring races in recent years.

        2. Amey
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Arsenal sh.t away form may just come to United's rescue

        3. Amey
            3 months, 6 days ago

            May the better team win the title 🙂 (frankly speaking I don't care who wins as United are not going to win)
            Pogba & De gea/Herrera/mata leaving anyway i fear.
            I just hope the fight for title gets extended till last gw to keep it interesting in FPL.

              With city likely to win the FA cup, pool need to win the title

              Can’t have city winning the treble

              It all sucks

              We just need to get top four but it won’t be easy

              Best time to play city tho - all those matches with spurs will take their toll

                Domestic treble isn't the real treble.

                      Arsenal away to Napoli and then palace away to arsenal could quite possibly be good for us

                      Then they’re away to Burnley and Leicester in the run in

                      But we need to beat Chelsea that’s the big game

                      That's a bit far fetched... We could always win the champions league to secure next season's champions league and keep Pogba and De Gea

                    Will Ryan, Duffy and Murray be able to score 5 points total on tuesday? Need 5 points from them to win a head to head.

                      Should do. Even if Cardiff win 2-0 you should get 2 from Ryan, 1 from Duffy & 2 from Murray.

                        If you need the FT yeah. Brighton to Watford defender could be a good move though.

                      Thoughts on Aguero as a DGW asset?
                      His records against TOT and MUN this season havent been great

                        Don't sell if you have him but maybe look elsewhere if you dont. They are tough fixtures though for any city assett

                        May need to sell to fund fixing the Duffy/Dunk hole I've dug myself into this week. Think Aguero will blank with minutes managed as well and Duffy/Dunk could end DGW35 with minus points.

                        Possible captain for me. Hes almost got to play both games as City have to win both. He also loves a big game.

                          This

                          Think these games suit him much better than Palace away.

                      Poor tekkers getting pelters on social media from palace fans but the lad was left for dead by his teammates..the amount of times he wone the ball held it up only to see not single one player has come to support him..if i was a palace fan id instead ask why zaha and Townsend suddenly forgot how to dribble

                        Palace playing deep for so long.
                        Benteke was winning a fair bit of ball in his own half but no-one round him.
                        Know he's had a difficult few seasons but thought he was trying pretty hard until he ran out of steam.

                        Out of all the non-Top 6, Palace are best equipped to beat City IMO. But you have to take risks. I would leave Zaha, Townsend and Benteke high up the pitch even when Palace don't have the ball and call City's bluff. Long-ball football at its finest

                      Duffy Dunk Laporte TAA Valery
                      Eriksen Son Pogba Jota KDB
                      Aguero Deeney Jimi

                      do I just save FT (if Valery fit) and do a double swap to get him in or do I swap dunk out for maybe Catchcart and get him in for a hit after 35?

                        Save the FT and bring him in for free imo.

                      WOW, Scoutpicks were awful this week. No Sterling, Moura, Pogba and no Bournemouth player.

                            Similar. Deu edges it on the extra minutes points.

                          is binning 2 dgw assets for 2 sgw assets for a -4 insane?

                          it's bloody tempting I tell ya..

                          aguero + eriksen > salah + wilson (-4) is very tempting

                            Yeah that’s dumb. It’s practically a -8 if they start both.

                                I mean champions league could cast doubt on them playing twice. But I’d rather roll it !

                            Big no. Back Wilson & Salah but also back the other 2, especially over two games.

                          Folks, should I keep or sell Martial?

                          1ft but my plan was to carry 2 into the following week to use on Liverpool assets as I only have TAA

                            Keep in your situation. Is a good differential.

                          Brighton defensive hype is back in my blood this morning

                                even if they concede, at least us quadrouplers have got something to look forward to!

                                I reckon they're going to keep it extremely tightship though, especially after that battering on the weekend

                            I'm relying on Duffy, Ryan and Murray to get me 5 points total on tuesday. Can they do it? Would be typical of Duffy to get a yellow, Ryan to concede 2 goals and Murray subbed of on 59th.

                                    Duffy TC! Actually had a good week not WC-ing apart from that rash last minute punt. oh well. Hoping for 2 points minimum to at least got something from the chip. Haha

                                  hat-trick by Dunk is enough 🙂

                                  C) bench boost with: Yedlin,Grant, AWB + Boruc (or -4 Lloris/Foster)

                                  Realistically speaking there isn't massive upside moving ryan on to patricio or gunn is there?

                                  If valery recovers, worth saving FT, so that I can bring salah back in for free for gw36?

                                      might return to port on Tuesday but valid point

                                  Best defender for GW35?

                                  I'm thinking Doherty with two home games against two defensively poor sides. Could be in for some attacking returns and somewhat less likely clean sheet returns.

                                    Probably right, unless Holebas is fit by then

                                      Or a Liv def vs cardiff

                                      I'd love to get Holebas in for Duffy if he was declared fit, but his minutes have been a bit erratic anyway.

                                    He's definetly up there. There's an argument for Liverpool defenders despite the SGW - reckon any could get double figures.

                                    I've bucked most good advice and gone for Kola as my best chance of a haul I suspect. But if I was a betting man, the prize will go to a boring CB who gets a bonus in each game! Looking back I'd have kept TAA over Doherty and Duffy etc. but double fever kicked in.

                                  It's going to happen.

                                    That's the live table at minute 89 in GW38, City being held by Brighton. We all know what'll happen next:

                                      Tempted to save the triple captaincy for this.

                                    Would be unbelievable. I think Liverpool are going to slip up though.

                                      You cant believe they will against those 4 teams , two relegated, two on the beach( with a most likely rested wolves side).City have the bannana skins .

                                  I have some dead weight in my team.
                                  Any player on a double GW is worth a -4 no?

                                    No, purely depends on the player. Thoughts like that cause things like Duffy captain!

                                  Now I'm not sure if this squad worth a BB..

                                  Any thoughts to help?

                                    I'd BB that. what's maddisons selling price?

                                      I'd have 9.8 itb if selling Maddison, meaning I could get in Pogba, Dilva, Bilva, Sane, or someone else cheaper.

                                    I'd BB that.

                                    When would you look to play it if not GW35?

                                  Last week teams 71 points with Foster to play.

                                  This GW's WC team 37 points with Ryan and Duffy to play.

                                  BB which other week are you planning on playing?
                                  35 for me team loaded up with DGW players, fixtures not brilliant but two games should work out.

                                    Same here. Taking hits to BB just because there's no better time to use it.

                                    same here, might take a -8 but with the right players, should pay off.

                                  Morning all

                                  With this team currently set up for BB GW35, if Valery is fit, I think my options are:
                                  A) Save FT to have 2FT for GW36 and get in Mané/ Firmino for LIV triple up
                                  B) JWP > Redmond / Brooks (FT)
                                  C) JWP, Duffy > Brooks, Kolas (-4)

                                  0.4itb
                                  Foster
                                  Robbo, Laporte, Doherty
                                  Salah, Eriksen, Son, Jota
                                  Kun, Jimi, Deeney
                                  (Lloris) (JWP*, Duffy*, Valery)

                                  Really hoping BB will make up for the flat disappointment of this WC!

                                  Cheers

                                      Save is my pick.

                                      Do you think i should move on taa/robbo to get Mane in my team ?? (Gw 35/36) ??

                                        What would the move be?

                                        I think Mané or Salah are pretty essential but it taking a hit for it could be risky depending on who you take out

                                            Taa + Eriksen >>> Mane + Defender.
                                            Maybe in gw 36 with 2 FT ??

                                          For those that are disappointed with their WC GW34 team, surely the team you picked was with at least one eye on BB GW35?

                                          If so, can you really assess whether your WC was a success or not until GW35 has been played?

                                            it's true, but despite knowing this, it's painful aint it

                                            like brighton haven't been battered the way they were, at home, all season..

                                            the fpl community then jump aboard the brighton defence train, including captaincy, and they go and lose 0-5...

                                            couldn't make it up really

                                            True but people also loaded up their teams with Wolves and Brighton players, teams that looked dreadful this weekend and probably won't pick up many points from here on out if they keep playing like that. The Spurs game was also disappointing as this fixture was most people's main reason to bring in players like Son, Trippier and Eriksen.

                                            Using the bench boost often seems to cause more harm than good.
