Foden replaces Sane in the only change to either side at the Etihad

The final match of Gameweek 37 takes place this evening between Manchester City and Leicester City.

Kick-off at the Etihad Stadium is at 20:00 BST.

A win for the hosts leaves them in pole position at the top of the Premier League table going into Gameweek 38.

There is only one change to the starting XIs this evening and it is perhaps a surprising one: Phil Foden replacing Leroy Sane for the home side, with Fernandinho and Kevin De Bruyne still not fit to return.

Foden’s recall means that Bernardo Silva is pushed further forward into the three-man City attack alongside Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling.

Sane, Gabriel Jesus and former Leicester winger Riyad Mahrez are among the substitutes.

Vincent Kompany again partners Aymeric Laporte at centre-half, with John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi forced to watch on from the bench.

Benjamin Mendy is once again omitted from City’s 18-man squad.

Brendan Rodgers has kept faith with the same 11 players that started the 3-0 win over Arsenal last weekend.

That means that youngster Hamza Choudhury again gets a start in a central midfield three alongside Youri Tielemans and anchor Wilfred Ndidi.

James Maddison and Marc Albrighton will flank Jamie Vardy in attack, so Harvey Barnes and Demarai Gray again have to make do with a place among the substitutes.

Only Liverpool have scored more Premier League goals than Leicester since Brendan Rodgers’ appointment.

Vardy has been involved in more Premier League strikes (nine goals, two assists) than any other Fantasy asset in that time.

Aguero will be endeavouring to keep up his own impressive record of never having blanked when starting a home league fixture this season.

Both Aguero and Vardy registered assists when the two sides met at the King Power Stadium back in December, with the Foxes running out 2-1 winners.

Sterling, who leads all other outfield players for points per match (7.1) in 2018/19, has six double-digit hauls to Aguero’s four at the Etihad this season.

Aguero is the leading captain option this week, with 33,241 managers handing the Argentinean striker the armband while using their Triple Captain chip.

13,121 FPL bosses have used the chip on Sterling in Gameweek 37, meanwhile.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Zinchenko, Gundogan, Silva, Foden, Sterling, Bernardo, Aguero.

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Maguire, Evans, Pereira, Choudhury, Maddison, Albrighton, Ndidi, Tielemans, Vardy.

    Next season I think I'll play like a casual. Planning and spending time researching hasn't helped at all.

        all part of the fun...they say ๐Ÿ™‚

          This season has been anything but fun, unfortunately.

          A few decent moments here and there, but looking back almost every move I didn't make because I was "sticking to the plan", would have paid off.

      • Snevitz

        How many people in the top 10k do you think didn't plan?

        1. TAT
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I'm nowhere close to top 10 myself, but would have had a better season just by making the transfers I didn't go through with because of planning ahead.

          1. Snevitz
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Sometimes the obvious transfer is the right one. You get to do it all again next season

            1. TAT
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Planning ahead seemed the obvious move to make. Looking back, it was making numerous hits for short-time effect that would've paid off.

      • Bobby

        Has been an odd old season though. No template captain and often mythical rotation risks played their part

        1. TAT
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Indeed. Been there several times this season.

        2. Snevitz

          Yeah, it's been the best season in years for varied teams and no set and forget captains.

      Sterling YC will surely be amended (FPL gave it to Jesus for some bizarre reason) right?!

      1. SPorting
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Who knows. Jesus was right in Deans face so it could actually be his

        1. Dakes.
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          BBC Live text have it as Sterling for commiting the foul though, and that's what the commentators said too?

      2. Les Bleus
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Nope. He didn’t get a yellow for the foul. Jesus got it for complaining about God knows what.

      3. FPL Flop
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Looked like it’s gone down as Jesus’ for dissent. Hope the ref clears this up before points are finalised.

      4. MTPockets
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Ref showed it to Jesus

        1. Waylander
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I think Jesus just happened to be complaining at the time.

          1. MTPockets
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Possibly, but if it was for Sterling he'd have directed it to Sterling

            1. Waylander
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              He did and said Raheem before he showed it.

              1. MTPockets
                • 9 Years
                1 month, 20 days ago

                Well if you're right will get changed with ref report. Otherwise not

      6. Waylander
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Watch the ref's face. He yells out Raheem and then shows him the card.

    5. LวgleSs e|even
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Kompany clearly referring to Sterling in the post match interview

      1. Dakes.

        what's he said?

        1. Weasel Boy
          • 6 Years

          That he deserved the yc, not jesus.

            Jesus for dissent, City too smart to get booked for them fouls.

        Some confusion in FPL towers as to whether Jesus or Sterling got a yellow

          Sterling didn’t get the yellow it was given to Jesus for dissent

          Feeling gutted as Liverpool fan. Who know when we will have chance like this again. Expect City to win next year with 15+ points more than second.

          1. La Roja
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            You never know. There is one more game and miracles do happen. I’d love them to Nick the title tbh

            I don't think they'll be as good next year, hopefully Liverpool are better, though I don't expect these points totals to be sustainable.

            Nah Pool are younger and on the up. More dross will be discarded and a couple more quality signings added.

            City are maxed out with a few stars - Silva Kompany and Fernandinho maybe even Kun could really start declining soon

              Yes but similar to Liverpool they will go shopping.

                Possibly City's spending has slowed down lately tho

                Pool have more room for improvement with still alot of dross around

                  Will be interesting to see what both clubs do in the transfer market this summer. Chelsea , Spurs , United and Arsenal are miles behind in terms of squad quality. This is a mark of far Klopp has improved Liverpool.

                    Indeed best LFC squad since the 80s and mostly young. Klopp's got a few more years to reach a peak

            it´s not over yet but most pool fans probably felt Leicester to be the team that could help us out. Brighton home when Brighton has nothing to play for sounds like easy but the gentleman that is Brightons manager will not allow his players to not show up and actually i think without any pressure from relegation and last home game og season plus there will be nerves in that City team.

            Liverpool is on the way up, City down, so next year (as it is always with us Pool fans). ) Record high points score without winning and the team that won is..well they compete with other tools than most of the rest to put it in a nice way.

            Like most of us my teams a weird mix of pool and wolves and a suspended Son

            Unfortunately I have 1 FT, Matip and a load of rotation prone dross on the bench like Kola and Llorente

            1.8 ITB

            Help

            Foster
            TAA Matip Laporte
            Sterling Siggy Mane Jota
            Jiminez Llorente Aguero

            Ryan Kola Doherty Son

            I guess my move has to be Son to someone like Pogba then bench Llorente or a wolves attacker.

            But maybe it’s not the worst spot for a hit.

            Barely clinging to top 5k and just wanna stay here

              It's a lottery. Hang fire as late as possible and hope pressers reveal something.

              I'm lucky enough to have 2ft but no real idea.

              Saints attack is an option.

                Yeah saints was something I was keen on but scared of that possible rotation.

                I think I just hate having so many pool and wolves players facing each other ! Especially as one is Matip ๐Ÿ˜€

                  I have 3 wolves - the reason I rolled an ft that now has to be used elsewhere - and also trying to stick in 5k.

                  I don't think your team looks awful. Who knows what wolves will do. Remember spurs game at Wembley when spurs really were on fire beforehand.

                  European games might give clue on matip and llorente starts.

                  Random rotation we cant do much about.

                    Yeah I’m probably being dramatic for no reason. Wolves can be great on their day.

                    It’s son that ruined it really. I was happy benching one, playing 1, selling 1!

                    I guess I’ll just wait for press conferences ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks mate hopefully there’s room for both of us in the top 5k next week !

                Sorry, thought you had 2 FTs. Saints attack still an option but doing something with the Son money is probably more sensible.

                  Yeah I’ll wait for press conferences I guess.

                  Something I’m determined to do is not pick Pogba just because it uses more money. Redmond could be the better pick and money irrelevant !

                I mean I feel Llorente to Long could be sideways kind of move and the 1.8 is a lot to spend anyway.

                There just doesn’t seem to be an obvious pick as I’m maxed on Pool and City !

            I’m 3 points off winning my mini league, I’d appreciate some thoughts on the best strategy to claim the win.

            FYI - He will captain Salah (I’m a Salah and sterling owner in terms of captain options).

            1) Take no hits and keep players such as Jota, Jiménez, Firmino
            2) Take one hit and do Firmino to Aguero or Jiménez to Rondón/Mitrovic.
            3) Go ballsy, take a -8, Firmino to Aguero and Jiménez to rondon/Mitrovic.

              3 points ? Don’t do a hit. You’ll want every point mate.

              Last year I won my ML as my rival had Ederson and he was on the bench and got booked. That one point won it as he had a fodder backup keeper.

                I might be forced into 2 if Firmino is out as I’ve only got Gray on the bench as back up....

                But thanks for feedback, your probably right I should try avoid hits.

                  I mean it’s tough really.

                  Gray could play with the FA cup in mind. But yeah you could end up with 10 players.

                  But if you do a -4 and the guy only gets 2 you’re 2 points down. It’s basically treating this GW like how we did in the blanks !

                        You need to compare your team to your opponents.

                        Unfortunately the decision could have bearing on your league ! But that’s the game ๐Ÿ™‚

                        I’d lean towards avoiding the hit and hope Gray gets a point or two

                  Gray is for me a starter as he is not first choice but they have FA cup and Gracia will not risk all his best players. just a guess but i would play Gray

            How safe am I compared with my rival who has BB to use next week? I am currently 18 points ahead of him.
            Also I own Son and Firmino who will
            likely not play. How risky is it to replace both for a hit at this point?

              Your not safe at all if he’s bench boosting and your gap is 18 points.

              Son to a differential (I went redmond), I’d Firmino is our you can then afford Firmino to Kun.

                I have Kun and Jimenez already and Sterling midfield together with Mane, Jota and JWP.
                Can’t even go with Redmond. Any more ideas?

                  Son to Fraser.

                  If firm out, who’s your bench replacement?

                    • 2 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    Jota, Jimenez or Bednarek

              Depends if he has a decent bench but I’d rather be in your position and would only take hits to field an 11

            Everyone on here told me to take auba out for aguero for a hit. Finally didn't listen to you people and it netted me 12 points.

                  I bet the good advice you’ve had outweighs it.

                  Players like AWB, Doherty, Digne, Mendy were all FFS gems at some point. Many more too.

              Somehow, somehow, got to 50 points this gameweek, rolling the FT and had none of the following, which on paper looked horrendous

              Shaw
              Pogba

              11k rank, just want the season to end.

                    Anyway, was pushing for best finish after a solid start and mid season. The last few weeks are usually where the rank gains happen. Are you new to this?

                        But given how badly you were lying before the chip season I’m not sure you can complain too much. You got the rank rise but we’re a way off

                  About 25 points ahead from main rivals in mini league... main differential is Hazard... who I can't get in without a hit.

                  Should I be worried?

                    You should be fine. You don’t wanna make the lead 21. Just play your game and pray.

                    Check your rivals TV now and you can see when he makes moves. Maybe try work them out.

                    Hazard unlikely to score that many, maybe he could cause an issue as captain. I would block him if I had an obvious player to lose otherwise play your own game

                    To start? Probably Laporte.

                  At least my red arrow decreased in size tonight... now down 700 places to 36.2k OR. New aim to finish in top 30k.

                  With this team, I could put out a decent team but feel I should use the FT.

                  1FT 0itb
                  Lloris
                  Robbo, Laporte, Valery
                  Salah, Sterling, Jota, Mili, JWP
                  Aguero, Wilson
                  (Foster) (Jimi, Doherty, Yoshida)

                  Jimi > Zaha/ Rondon?
                  If I do it who the flip do I bench?!

                    I’d bench Jota but could happily bench Milivojevic too. I like Arnautovic! Zaha only seems to do it away from home. Or Mitrovic?

                      Cheers mate

                      Jota has looked the most dangerous Wolves player last few so I’d feel a bit strange benching him

                      May wait for betting odds and base my punt on them- Mitro vs Rondon vs Arnie vs Zaha!
