Can De Bruyne offer better value than Sterling or Aguero in Man City attack?

With Manchester City sitting top of our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 1 to 11, many Fantasy Premier League managers will be eyeing up at least one attacking option from Pep Guardiola’s side.

Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero (both £12.0m) will again be popular choices but much-anticipated price rises mean that only Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) is a more expensive FPL asset than the premium City pair in 2019/20.

Price hikes for other high-achieving players, meanwhile, have left FPL managers scrabbling around for cost-effective alternatives elsewhere.

Bernardo Silva (£8.0m) and David Silva (£7.5m) may appeal at the top-end of the mid-price bracket, with the Portugal international in particular being one of City’s more secure starters (if there is such a thing) given the high esteem in which Guardiola holds him.

Gifted as they are, the cheaper City midfielders didn’t fully convince as reliable Fantasy options last season.

Twelve FPL midfielders had better points-per-match averages than the pair (4.3), with Sterling (6.9) top for that statistic among outfield Premier League players.

The two Silvas have only scored two league goals between them in 2019.

Question marks over the game-time and futures of wingers Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and Leroy Sane (£9.5m) also persist.

The return to fitness of Kevin De Bruyne (£9.5m) intrigues, then, especially as the Belgian’s starting price has dropped below the £10.0m mark for the first time since his Chelsea days.

De Bruyne had an injury-ravaged 2018/19 and played less than 1,000 minutes, having had five separate spells on the sidelines.

A total of five attacking returns was a meagre haul but 21 goals and 49 assists in his previous three campaigns combined underscore what he is capable of when fit and firing.

Given that he is a full £2.5m cheaper than Sterling and Aguero, we’ll look at De Bruyne’s credentials for 2019/20 compared to the other City options around him – in particular, the two more expensive attackers.

      Why Vardy?

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Nailed + Pens + BR having good impact last season.
        You don't like him ??

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I like him, but not so many Vardy's around 🙂

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Yeah. He's @ an awkward price point tbh. 😮

      Glad you've the marbles to go for Vardy, past two-three seasons I've relied on him quite a bit, can't bring myself to bring him in just yet... I am confused to see Barnes is more expensive than Gray however (definitely want one of these two in my team - IMO the "budget" player of the season)

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers mate.
        I can improve a Midfielder if i let go Vardy, but i have a gut feeling he'll have a great start of the season.
        I © him twice last season both for 32 point hauls so maybe I'm blinded by that 😀
        Re Midfield of Leicester, i really like gray @ 5.5

        1. Zenith UK
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Barnes and Gray could both be BIG shouts this season. Along with Tielemans and Maddison I think it's a great midfield!
          I understand your struggles, if he was 8.0 I'd have him immediately.

          I could go Moura & Jorginho > FAnderson & Gray but not sure right now...

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Yeah.
            I am kind of adamant about Vardy atm. Might be a failure waiting to happen 😀
            BR has a young team with Vardy as focal point of attack. I'm going for it i guess.

            Re Anderson, WH attacking Midfield is a bloody minefield IMHO. Too many CAM's so won't go their. Like Moura shout with Son banned.

            1. Zenith UK
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Do it bro, could definitely work out for you
              BR loves playing attacking football too, gonna be good there I reckon.

              Lanzini on the way out? Anderson/Yarmolenko wingers with Fornals in the middle behind Arnie? Moura could be explosive in first game of the season against newly promoted side!

                3 months, 25 days ago

                Thank you for constructive input as always 🙂
                I'm going to wait for 2/3 matches with WH to see how they shape up this season. Could be another Antonio season 😉

                  Always love a healthy chat about FPL or team transfers! Appreciate the reciprocation!
                  I'm a WH fan, let's hope we show up this season, would like to see a new LB/RB, DM and maybe a proper FWD (would take Welbeck tbh)

                  1. Amey
                    • 1 Year
                    3 months, 25 days ago

                    Yeah.
                    Good luck for new season. WH is enigmatic team, can kick anyone's ass or get beaten up by minnow's too. Hopefully some consistency is achieved this season for both WH & fpl point of view.
                    I'd love to see Mitrovic at WH

      Nice

      Uncertain about Mo to start the season but I guess you’re sold on him.

      Have you considered trading Pereyra in for a premium defender? Would you back him to outscore Walker say over 4/5 matches

      5-2-3 is where it is this season I tell you

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Hello Pingi 🙂
        Peryera is odd man out i guess.
        I have convinced myself enough to go 4 atb so i don't think i have courage to go for 5 😀
        It's easily possible that Walker can outscore him.
        Will keep Tinkering buddy.
        Re Salah, he's cheap than i expected alongside Robbo & Taa so I'm happy to keep the triple up from last season. He has scored most points for two seasons in row so I'm not going to overthink it atm. He's a great © option alongside Raz so ...
        I'm doomed if Mane scores big & Salah goes quite. Happened same last season as i had Mo abd Mane exploded.
        Hopefully it's other way around this time

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Surprised myself with 5 at the back - felt sure it was going to be 3 but all the value at 6-7 seems to be at the back or up top.

          On this at the mo

          Lloris
          Vvd TAA Digne Luiz Walker
          Sterling Zaha*
          Kane Vardy Deu*

          Might go Mo for Kane but only from 4-5 on when he’s over Afcon. It’s slmost a point of principle to give him a rest even if Klopp doesn’t.

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Nice team.
            I don't like Kane tbh. Don't feel as confident © him as i would have been two years ago. I can see him dropping deep again in order to accommodate Moura & Son (after suspension)
            Love the Vardy pick

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 25 days ago

              Did some research and both pre injury Kane and Auba matched Sterling point for point up to gw 22 last season.

              This time Kane is value and Sterling not! I started with a variation with both Kane and Auba but no Sterling. But that felt a little conceptual.

                You've got me thinking

                Amazing captain rotation with those 2, could actually prove competition for a set and forget Salah - interesting...

  5. KAPTAIN KANE

    Best defensive rotation pairing for £9.5m or less?

    1. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Diop & Boly? Won't face a top 6 team from last season at all...

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        like this pairing as well...lots of away matches though, but no top 6 team indeed

        1. Zenith UK
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I pulled out at last minute as I needed the funds elsewhere but I keep thinking about going back to it.

    2. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Dunk and Rico for £8.5m

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Don't like Rico

        1. ZimZalabim
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          didnt he lose his place last year ?

          is he expected to be nailed this season ? would be a great option at that price if so

    3. The 5% Team
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I like Brighton and Crystal Palace....for the first 20 GWs, you can have 16 home matches and 4 away, and only 1 match against a top 6 team

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

        Sounds good

  7. Zenith UK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Any thoughts/comments - positive or negative - appreciated please folks;

    Pickford
    TAA, Digne, Laporte, A. Smith
    Sterling, Mane, Richar, Moura
    King, Arnie

    Button, Jorginho, Diop, Greenwood

    Still waiting for a few missing players to drop which may change my team around!

    1. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Don't like Everton double at the back, I would prefer Siggy over Richy and Zaha over Moura

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Their fixtures I'm happy to take the punt on double back but appreciate the feedback for sure! I did have Siggy but looking at Everton's front two (Tosun & DCL) I'm hoping for an OOP Richar (will switch back to Siggy if they are active in the market).

        Moura > FAnderson for GW2 potentially. Don't want Zaha (assuming he goes to Arsenal).

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Different team.
      Richardson has a great start historically so you may be right with him.
      I don't like Pickford & A Smith though.
      Cheap keeper + 5.5 Defender Maybe ??

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        AMEY! How you been? WB!

        Hoping with his previous start form and a potential OOP with only DCL/Tosun as FWD competition I'm taking a bit of a punt!

        What's putting you off of Pickford/Smith? Don't think they'll keep the CS?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 25 days ago

          I'm great buddy 🙂
          Don't have too much time to stay here now as I've switched my job so no more spare time 😀
          I missed this fpl stuff for past few days.
          Glad we're back again.
          I'm buzzing atm as United have signed a Proper Full back @ RB position for United after a decade !!

          Re double Everton Defense, I don't think i want that. Digne is enough imo.
          Cheap keeper + upgrade on 4th Defender is very enticing 😮

          1. Zenith UK

            I think my company just blocked FPL website... Ugh! Good luck with the new role!

            Be interesting to see how he does at ManU. Especially depending on who starts in front of him on the wing, wonder if they go well together...

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year

              Thank you buddy 🙂
              This site is quite Mobile friendly so i guess you can continue on mobile as your company has done a CRIME 😀

              Shaw & Awb should be good for United tbh.

              I hope United play one of Sanchez/James on RW consistently to create some understanding with the attack & WB's.
              We may get a 7/6 m United Winger which can be a great value option (if we play well of course 😛 )

                Rashford
                Martial Pogba Sanchez
                Signing x2
                Shaw Signing x2? AWB

                Could be dangerous, I do agree though you need some consistency. Hope Shaw turns up this season!

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 25 days ago

                  Could be great if United land a CM & a CB alongside Lindelof & Matic/Fred/Mactomnay (pukes*)
                  I can't see us signing two CM's tbh.
                  Maybe Pogba in pivot two alongside a rock solid CDM (new) could work out

          Will be interesting to see how close the teams posted today resemble final teams.

      Who's Arnie?

      Arnautovic plays in China now...

  8. MysticMac17
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on this? Thinking of extremely heavy at the back with rotating captains of Kane and Sterling to start

    Ederson
    VVD Robbo TAA Laporte Digne
    Sterling Zaha
    King Kane Giroud

    Subs: Button, Deodoncker, Stephens, Guendouzi

    1. L Ron Cupboard
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I've got back 5 but with Mendy instead of Laporte

    2. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      That's an amazing team you got

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      You're one salah goal away from panick buddy.
      Also triple Defense is too much imho

    4. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      You really going to keep Zaha if he goes to Arsenal?
      VVD downgrade upgrade midfielder, otherwise great team 🙂

  9. Andy_Social

    Did y'all get the message? AWB deal done, 50 million. He's aMan United defender now.

    Not on my watchlist by the way - I had my fun with him start of last season.

  10. The Pope
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years

    a) Diop + Boly
    b) Walker + Kelly

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Does kelly start?

      Currently b IMO but city has been linked to Joao cancelo who’s a outside back (plays more on the right) and if they get him walker won’t be nailed anymore

        Juve keep rejecting Danilo as City want an exchange as part of the deal...

        3 months, 25 days ago

        If GW1 were tomorrow, he starts as AWB has goneski and Sakho + Tomkins are injured. Somehow I can't see that scenario remaining unchanged, so if I were getting a Palace defender I go with Ward.

      B

  11. No Professionals
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Doesn't quite add up. But...

    A) sterling and vardy
    B) KDB and aguero

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      A. It’s also cheaper

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I like A

    3. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      KDB and Kane?

  12. Bad Kompany
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Do you think Wilson is worth the extra 1.5 over king?

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      I really don't know. It's a tough question

    2. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers! Wilson was amazing when he played last season but I’m not sure if he’ll be able to keep it up. Also king has pens

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          0.5m or even 1m more okay, but at 1.5m I can't justify it, so I'm with King.

          1. Bad Kompany
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 25 days ago

            Cheers! Reasoning seems sound

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      No - too much of a gap

      1. Bad Kompany
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers!

    4. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      If Fraser leaves and with king on pens then I’d say no.

  13. NUFCAndrew
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on this lot? I don’t see a fault in this side

    Pope/Heaton 4.0

    Robbo/TAA VVD Laporte Digne 4.0

    Salah Sterling Siggy Zaha 4.5

    Jota King 4.5

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Looks good

    2. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Looking very good but I would prefer Ryan/Button over Burnley's GKs and try to upgrade Jota to Jimenez (On pens.)

      1. Game Over
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        nowt wrong with Jota, and he obviously can't afford to upgrade and keep the players he wants.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Looks very nice - almost same as one of my options below

  14. Dare Do The Punt
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Is 3-5-2 a bit of a no go formation without any obvious 4.5m strikers

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      If you think the 4th defender doesn't beat any of the 7 attackers, no.

    2. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Not sure why it matters if you aren’t playing your 4.5m striker

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Good old Kamara/Quaner days !!

    4. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Don't get you. A 4.5m striker is purely for the bench.

  15. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on these 2 set ups- which team do you prefer (if either!)

    A
    Heaton
    TAA Digne Robertson
    Salah KDB Townsend Brooks
    Kane Deulofeu King

    Button Dendoncker Diop Kelly

    B
    Ryan
    TAA Digne Robertson Mendy
    Salah Sterling Sigurdsson Zaha
    Jota King

    Button Dendoncker Kelly Greenwood

    1. The Pope
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      B looks great

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks

    2. Super Frank
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      A

  16. The Pope
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Pretty happy with this.. finally 😀

    Heaton - Ryan

    TAA - VVD - Digne - Boly - Diop

    Salah - Sterling - Siggy - Zaha - 4.5

    King - Deulofeu* - 4.5

    *switching to Arnie GW2 🙂

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Yes like this. Boly and Diop good options

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Actually one downside is Burnley and Brighton second worst rotation in first 5 games. Particularly week 4 when Burnley home to Liverpool and Brighton away to City. Ryan and possibly Bournemouth keeper once we know who is favourite there

        1. The Pope
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Ok, thanks 😀

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Like it.

    3. Bad Kompany
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Looks good. If kelly looks like a starter I’d consider him and Coleman over diop and boly. Everton and palace rotate well and keep a lot more cs than wolves and west ham

      1. The Pope
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        K, cheers

  17. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Quick look before hols. Not had a huge in depth fixture look or anything and waiting for Sufc to sign players first as will defo have an attacker ;).

    Ederson/4.0
    AWB/Kelly/JOC/Laporte/VVD
    Mane/Bilva/Zaha/Sig/H-Odoi
    Arni/Vardy/Jota

    Hmmm

    1. TorresMagic™

  18. Nailed Jesus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    How would you rank these 6.5m strikers (for the start of the season):
    King, Deeney, Jota, Deulofeu...correct order?

    1. AuFeld
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      King, Deeney, Deulofailu, and Jota.

      1. Nailed Jesus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks, at least we agree on the top 2.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Let me through Wood in consideration 🙂

      1. Nailed Jesus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        I don't fancy Burnley to score many goals in those fixtures.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 25 days ago

          Cool
          I am interested in him tbh
          From your list I'd say
          King Deulofeu Jota Deeney

  19. Halftime
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    First Draft -

    Heaton / Gunn

    TAA - Robertson - Laporte

    Salah - Zaha - Grealish - Perez

    Lacazette - Jimenez - Rashford

    Subs: Gibson, Hayden, Lascelles

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      First team I've seen with a United player in it 😮
      Don't like Laca pick tbh

  20. Scotty B
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Any better options than Ake @5.0 or below?

    1. Nailed Jesus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Holebas

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Quite a few. 12 defenders @5 or less averaged more per match.

      1. Scotty B
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 25 days ago

        Go on...

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 25 days ago

          It's on the FPL site, use the filters, even Duffy averaged more.

    3. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 25 days ago

      Jack O Connel 😉

    4. Irbox ⚽

      5.0’s are horrible this season

  21. SmithyJ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on Calvert Lewin? Is it worth an extra 0.5 to upgrade to Jota?

    1. jameslamerton
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Calvert Lewin has better fixtures at the start of the season, that gives him the edge for me.

      1. 32chickens
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        DCL-great player but often seems to forget where the goal is and that aim of game can sometimes be to score goals...I hope he has some better results this season

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      No way. There are good value forwards at 6.0m. Ings, Wesley, Sharp are all pretty solid.

      1. POLSKA GOLA
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Chosing a 6.0 striker is my main headache atm.
        I don’t like Southampton’s home fixtures, considering Wesley, haven’t looked at Sharp so far

  22. goiliog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    What about Sane? Seems like the Bayern Munich transfer will not happen. Isn't he a competitor for starting line up on the left wing? He has some explosive potensial. So, Sane over KdB anyone?

    1. POLSKA GOLA
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Injured, ain’t he?

  23. Wobblesock2
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Heaton (button)
    VVD, walker, dunk (kelly simpson)
    Mane, kdb, zaha/maddiso, siggy (dedoncker)
    Aguero, king, jiminez

    Rmt pls

  24. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Current team:

    Henderson McGovern
    TAA VvD Digne Lundstram Rico
    Salah Sterling De Bruyne Perez Dendoncker
    King Wesley Ings

    0.5m which I can use to upgrade King to Kean or Abraham depending on which is hot.

    Also considering KdB + King > Aubameyang + McGinn (although double Villa attack...)

  25. Irbox ⚽
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Don’t like the fact that Palace have bought McCarthy from the Toffees in a stand alone deal.. makes it harder to secure Zaha.. but with Watford standing firm on Doucoúre, we have the cash to splash on the Ivorian Coaster. Palace can have Tosun for free!

  26. gilean

    A or B?
    A

    Ederson Button
    TAA Robbo Digne Zinchenko Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Fraser Perez Dendoncker
    King Jota Greenwood

    B

    Ryan
