Scout Notes

De Bruyne firmly on FPL radar after double-digit haul

Raheem Sterling (£12.1m) made it four goals in two Premier League matches as Manchester City were held by Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

It was the performance of Kevin De Bruyne (£9.6m) that really caught the eye, though, and we lead on the Belgian’s impressive display against the Lilywhites in our Scout Notes article below.

We also round up the other Fantasy talking points at the Etihad and provide some Members’ analysis at the bottom of this piece.

Manchester City 2-2 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Raheem Sterling (£12.1m), Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) | Erik Lamela (£6.0m), Lucas Moura (£7.5m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£9.6m) x2 | Lamela, Tanguy Ndombele (£6.1m)
  • Bonus Points: De Bruyne – 3, Lamela – 2, Ndombele – 1

After just two matches of the new season, De Bruyne already has as many Fantasy Premier League assists to his name as he did in an injury-ravaged 2018/19.

It is perhaps premature to say the Belgian is back to his scintillating best given that we are not yet out of August but few would argue that De Bruyne was the most influential player on show at the Etihad on Saturday, having looked in ominously good form in pre-season and in Gameweek 1.

The player himself said of his Gameweek 2 display:

I feel good and I’m becoming better. It’s still the beginning of the season so sometimes it’s heavy but I feel fine so everything will be OK this season.

Many Fantasy managers will still have reservations based on last season, given De Bruyne’s injury record: the former Chelsea and Wolfsburg midfielder had five separate spells on the sidelines with fitness issues of varying severity.

De Bruyne’s comments above even hint that he is still some way from feeling in top condition physically.

FPL bosses with longer memories will recall that the Belgium international made 36 and 37 Premier League appearances in 2016/17 and 2017/18, however, with all bar four of those coming from the start.

A fit and firing De Bruyne is a Fantasy force to be reckoned with, as Gameweek 2 underscored.

The Belgian playmaker was the supplier of Sterling and Sergio Aguero‘s (£12.0m) goals with two superb crosses from the right and would have claimed a hat-trick of assists had Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m) not planted a side-footed effort narrowly wide on the stroke of half-time.

De Bruyne created three times as many opportunities as anyone else on show in Manchester and indeed registered more key passes than any other FPL asset in Gameweek 2 so far.

Assists are more likely than goals (that has been the case in each of his five previous seasons as a Premier League player) but De Bruyne is fond of a shot and more than capable of finding the back of the net himself.

Against Spurs, the Belgian whistled an effort narrowly wide of Hugo Lloris‘ (£5.5m) goal just after half-time, having earlier sliced an effort uncharacteristically high and wide when well positioned in the Spurs box.

One of the possible downsides to De Bruyne as a Fantasy asset (certainly compared to the likes of Sterling) is his more deep-lying position in central midfield.

It was notable on Saturday, however, just how advanced he was, often underlapping Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) on the right flank.

The superb Portugal international certainly wasn’t peripheral on Saturday – only Sterling had more shots and penalty box touches at Eastlands – but his limitations as a Fantasy asset were perhaps illustrated by the fact that he ‘assisted the assister’ for both of City’s goals.

Bernardo lobbed an effort against Lloris’s bar in the second half, unsurprisingly from a De Bruyne corner.

The Belgian’s continued availability and creativity could also be crucial to Sterling and Aguero this season.

The Argentinean striker was otherwise fairly quiet on his first start of 2019/20 and was indebted to De Bruyne’s teasing low ball from the right to double his goals tally for the new season.

Aguero was hooked for Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) midway through the second half, prompting a heated exchange between player and manager.

Pep Guardiola downplayed talk of any row after the game, saying:

He believes that I was upset with him for the goal we conceded but that was a corner, it was a one vs one movement.

He thought I was upset with him, I am animated but I was a player, I know what it’s like. We talked after and during, I love him a lot as a player.

Sterling gave Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0m) a torrid afternoon down the left flank, especially in the first half, and scored a rare headed goal when nipping in front of his marker after 19 minutes.

In truth, we didn’t learn much new about the England winger as he carried on where he left off in 2018/19, registering more penalty box touches than any other Premier League player in Gameweek 2.

Another season of 30+ attacking returns likely beckons if he stays fit, particularly if De Bruyne can avoid injury.

City were utterly dominant in this game, having a late winner chalked off after VAR intervention and allowing Spurs just three shots on goal – two of which found the back of the net – and five penalty box touches.

The fact that they didn’t register a clean sheet would have been a great source of frustration to Fantasy managers and indeed Guardiola, who said after full-time:

We played incredible. One of the best games we’ve played in our time together. We played good, but unfortunately we could not win.

The way we arrive, create chances and put Tottenham deeper when they wanted to press. Unfortunately, when they cross the line they score and then a set-piece. Nothing else.

We play Tottenham, one of the best teams in Europe. Today was fantastic in everything we have done, our pressing, closing spaces, controlling counter-attacks and creating chances.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) was part of the City backline that was breached but John Stones (£5.5m) missed out with a thigh problem.

A club statement said:

John Stones has suffered a rectus femoris strain and will miss today’s game at home to Tottenham Hotspur. The defender will be assessed and a prognosis is likely next week.

Owners of Spurs’ assets can probably just put this Gameweek 2 performance to one side and look forward to easier tests ahead, as Saturday’s display was almost non-existent from an attacking perspective.

Harry Kane (£11.0m) and Christian Eriksen (£8.9m) had little chance to impress, with Kane starved of service up top and Eriksen asked to play on the left of midfield in a 4-4-1-1.

The Dane spent much of his afternoon chasing shadows and perhaps showed his defensive naivety in that position given the time De Bruyne had to cross the ball from City’s right flank.

Erik Lamela (£6.0m) was the one bright spark as he curled in a strange equaliser from distance in the first half (Ederson‘s (£6.1m) positioning definitely up for debate) before assisting substitute Lucas Moura (£7.5m) for the visitors’ second leveller from a corner.

Even Lamela, providing support for Kane, was mostly tasked with pressing Rodri (£5.5m) in the centre of the hosts’ midfield and Mauricio Pochettino clearly set his stall out to sit deep.

The Spurs boss admitted his side were second-best, saying:

I think they were better. I think they dominated the game. It was clear the game. Of course, with the different circumstances of both teams, I am happy with the result. It was a very positive result for us here, one point. I’m happy because of the point but like I said after the game against Aston Villa we need to improve a lot.

An away match at City is unlike any other, of course, and we can expect Spurs to show a similar level of attacking ambition against Newcastle next Sunday as they exhibited in Gameweek 1 when racking up 31 shots against Aston Villa.

Who joins Kane in the attacking positions is another question and Pochettino’s wealth of options is one of the downsides of owning a Spurs midfielder at present.

Lucas and Lamela presented convincing cases at the Etihad but Son Heung-min (£9.5m) now returns from suspension and Giovani Lo Celso (£7.5m) registered his first Premier League minutes as a substitute at the weekend.

Eriksen could yet stay in north London, too, while Dele Alli (£8.4m) is another name to throw into the mix when he returns from a hamstring injury.

Further back, Tanguy Ndombele (£6.1m) registered his second attacking return of the season with the assist for Lamela’s goal, although that was his only key pass and he registered just two final-third touches as Spurs struggled for meaningful possession.

Jan Vertonghen (£5.4m) again failed to start but there was another run-out at right-back for Walker-Peters.

Serge Aurier (£5.0m) wasn’t among the substitutes on Saturday and, with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) sidelined with an ankle injury, Walker-Peters’ owners will be hoping that the shirt is his to lose heading into Gameweek 3.

Reflecting on Walker-Peters’ display, Pochettino said:

I think he still needs to improve. He’s still so young. It’s not easy. When you’re a back-up player, your excitement and motivation is massive when you have the possibility to play. It’s an amazing opportunity no? You are focused 200 per cent to show you can play, but when you start to feel the responsibility that you are first choice we’ll see how he’s going to behave.

Today I think was a massive test to play against one of the best offensive players like Sterling. I think one thing good, but other needs to improve on. He’s still so young but the experience will be massive for him.

    Who would you transfer out for Pukki?

    A) Wood
    B) King

    1. FOO FIGHTER

      Wood

      1. Ëð
        • 5 Years

        Thanks, that what I was leaning towards.

  2. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year

    People about asking KDB or Son?

    KDB will start everytime. Whether Son does is down to Pochetino. Will Moura and Son be rotated? Too many questions. KDB also a long term pick.

    Surely KDB?

  3. Tcheco
    • 3 Years

    What would you do with 2 FT? 🙂

    ----------------Ryan
    TAA Zinch AWB KWP Lundstram
    --------Salah Sterling Perez
    -----------Kane Wilson

    Button Robinson Dendonck Greenwood

    1. WWF
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Resist the urge to tinker, good team. You could go Wilson to Pukki? But I wouldn't.

    2. LangerznMash
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Perez + Robinson > Pulisic + Cantwell

    3. Jafoole_88
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kane to Pukki. you cannot deny that Pukki is this year's Soldado

  4. aapoman
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    No idea what to do. Might just roll the second free transfer and do TAA to AWB.

    Pope (4.0)
    TAA Robbo Digne Zinchenko
    Salah Sterling Martial Perez (Dendoncker)
    Wilson Jota (Greenwood)

  5. The King
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Robertson, Fraser, Wilson -> Walker, KDB and Pukki?

    Yay or nay?

    1. The King
      • 6 Years

      (For -4)

      1. Gudjohnsen

        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yes from me.

    2. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Im getting rid of the same 3 players but for Wan Bissaka, KDB and Pukki

  6. LangerznMash
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Barkley, Iwobi, Vardy and Kean all set for £0.1m drop...
    I see value.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Kean is interesting. Vardy will come good.

      Have my doubts about Barkley and Iwobi.

  7. SOTHPAW
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Used 2 FTs already to bring in Pukki for King and AWB for TAA, HAVE 1.9 m in the bank, anything worth a hit?

    Ryan

    AWB, Digne, Robertson

    Salah, Sterling, Martial, Moura, Perez

    Jota, Pukki

    Button, Lundstram, Greenwood, Rico

    Bit concerned with only having Lundstram as a bench player and Digne possibly injured, Perez and Moura possibly benching risks.

    1. xHaTr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Moura to KDB

      1. SOTHPAW
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I'm 0.2 short for that, it would involve Perez downgrade in the deal and a -8 hit. Caught in 2 minds to ride with it this week and hope Perez and Moura play get some points or the -8.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Ah my team varied. Difference is Mane Kane McGinn over Mo Moura Perez.

      Defence is a worry with Digne but I’m prepared to ride that with Lund for a week or maybe 2 if necessary.

      Bigger issue going forward is Moura Perez. Much the best bench options in mid forwards imo are Dendoncker and Cantwell. Don’t see that as being worth a hit now mind. It matters with Jota and EL commitments I think

  8. Firmino
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Heaton
    Robbo VvD Digne Montoya
    Salah Sterling KdB Martial Perez
    King

    McGovern; Rico, Wickham, Greenwood

    1FT

    Robbo -> Lundstram
    Perez -> Son

    -4

    Too risky?

  9. Genji3lade
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Need help - team has limited funds as I already own Kane, Sterling, Salah and 2 Liverpool Defenders.

    Would prefer KDB over Martial but the latter allows me to get Pukki too!

    A.) Barkley, Perez, King >> KDB, Cantwell, Wickham (-4)

    B.) Barkley Perez, King >> Martial, Cantwell, Pukki (-4)

    Which do you prefer? Option A leaves me with this:

    Pope
    Montoya, Zinch, Landstrum, Robbo, TAA
    Sterling (c) Salah KDB Cantwell
    Kane

    (Button, Dendocker, Wickham, Greenwood)

    1. Gowiththeflow
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Great template.

      However, downgrading Kane may allow a more balanced team, upgrading Wickam / Greenwood.

  10. The_Fish
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    It feels like a lot of people are taking hits this week... join them or take the 4 point bonus from them?

  11. Invincibles
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    A terrible 38 with Jota to play.
    2 FT:

    Heaton
    VVD TAA Digne Zinchenko
    Siggy Salah Sterling Perez
    Wilson Jota
    Subs: DD, Lund, Gwood

    A) Siggy & Wilson > Son & King
    B) Siggy & Wilson> 5.0 & Kane
    C) -4 to get Kane in

    1. B.D.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      A with KDB

  12. Gowiththeflow
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    WC activated. Know it's a bit early in the season but trying to antecipate rather than waiting too long as i did last season.

    What do you think of this template:

    Ryan/Pope
    Boly/WB/Soyuncu
    Son/KDB/Sterling/Mane
    Barnes/Pucky/Jota

    Ceballos/Lundstram/Kelly

    Chasing points?

    Have an option to downgrade Son and upgrade one of the strikers to Kane... many doubts in here!

    Appreciate yout thoughts.
    Thanks

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Have him but bit dubious about Jota in the short term with EL about to kick in seriously.

      Henderson over Heaton for me.

      Ceballos could be gold but worried about Emery switching things around.

      I’d put the Jota money in defence - getting City. They have golden fixtures coming up and I see more consistent returns thee than in Wolves attack.

      1. Gowiththeflow
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Thanks. Agree on the need for improvement in defense... but an atack with Barnes and Pucky it's just too short...

  13. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    We've had two GWs so far without seeing much from the 9.5 mid captaincy bracket. KDB has exploded in his own way (near essential if you don't have Sterling), but we still have Son and Pepe integrating into their squads. 9.5 forwards have already shown that most managers won't want to cap 'em often in the near future, with Firmino and Laca continuing where they left off last season as good long-term non-captaincy options (and CS plus extra goal point for mids)

    From GW5, I think it could be a great alternative captain spot to the Salah/Sterling rotation now and then... Especially for folks like me who don't intend to buy premium forwards. Martial already offers a differential captaincy choice when facing utterly shite defences. Might mean 4 captaincy options from 4 of the big 6 clubs, and maybe Mount who could become CHO for that 5th mid spot 🙂

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Also, is this the first season in a while when none of the big 6 coaches has a defensive mindset?

  14. SMOOTH
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    love the look of Son + martial over Kane + Ceballos but feel like gametime for son is a concern, specially this week and perhaps over the season with competition from moura lamela alli and the new signing.

  15. G Banger
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    Worried about no spurs cover...

    Robbo + Perez => Lundstrum + Son?

  16. aapoman
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 3 months ago

    People with Perez. You sticking or dumping?

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      I took a Perez-sized dump. Feels good

      Could backfire easily, but I don't like how he played and the positions he took. Chelsea didn't exactly block Leicester out with a superb defence. Something simply didn't click... And I saw Pereira and/or Maddison ahead of Perez in his own wing too often for my liking against Chelsea. For a notoriously streaky player, keeping him on a bad streak with two sub-par performances is tough for me

      1. Invincibles
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Anonymous vs Chelsea

    2. Slouch87

      I think so. West Ham top of the favourable fixtures from now until around gw 10 in attacking perspective. I'll go with him at the moment.

  21. pingissimus

    1 year, 3 months ago

    Vaguely curious that Henderson isn’t featuring more in the WC squads. Is this the Lund effect?

    He has a fantastic penalty record 🙂 and SU look decent enough in defence to get their cs quota. How long is Lund good for? Does the fact that Freeman looked good mean that his run may be shorter than we like?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Good differential. Lund needs to keep performing. If fleck is out for a few weeks it makes him an annoyingly good pick. I have JOC and didn’t want to double SHU defence and it isn’t advisable given their fixtures anyway for me

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I actually shifted out Henderson for Pope on WC last week 🙁 But Id still have him over Heaton I think.

        Really wanted JOC from the beginning - hope it works out. My suspicion is that he’ll be better long term than Lund who I have of course

        1. Ask Yourself
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Yeah heaton has been my worst pick along with Almiron lol. Holding off on WC for now might be able to make it last a while as I have nearly everyone I want for now. Hoping for a JOC haul this weekend as I am shifting him for Aarons in GW4. Montoya not going anywhere for me I love him so JOC has to go.

    Ceballos looks like a young Fabregas the way he played on Saturday.

    Not seen a player look that graceful in an arsenal shirt in a while

    1. Slouch87
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      He's class and Emery loves him. Very underpriced.

      1. KingOllie
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I agree, playing as a number 8 or 10 for Arsenal and taking corners/FKs and only 5.5? Bargain.

        He will occasionally miss games for Ozil, but i dont think many at all

        1. Slouch87
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Good thing is Emery not an Ozil fan at all.

          1. KingOllie

            Yep, Ozil will play cup competitions and Europa this year.

            Dani is the man to get us back into the CL standings

    I start to doubt about my moves from yesterday for -4pts...

    Salah Fraser Perez --> Mane KDB Ceballos

    Was it worth it in your opinion?

        thanks but you mentioned that ceballos may be rotated?

          Can you afford Mount instead of Ceballos?

            cheers for the idea but dont want to go near mount / barkley et al at chelsea. Unsettled and dont look great going forwards. Cabellos is on freekicks / corners and ran the game for arsenal.

              Yeah I watched it, he was brilliant but look at Arsenal's next two fixtures compared to Chelsea... We'll see, there's no right answer yet!

                Liverpool isn't that bad. This could be a high scoring game.

          It might happen but I do not see it happening a lot tbh. I just said that Mcginn might be a little safer as probably won't be rotated at all. But I like Ceballos and brought him in myself

    Plenty of burnt wildcards by the look of it.

    1. The Man Pastore
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Looks like it yeah...

      Not saying it's likely but a KDB blank and Salah haul next week would be interessant

    Thoughts on this WC

    Ryan
    VVD AWB Zinch
    Mane KDB Sterling Martial
    Barns Jota Pukki

    Button Lundstram Ceballas Kelly

    One thought is Jota/Kelly to Digne Greenwood but makes the defence too strong?

  28. Michelle Davin

    Perez and moura
    To
    Ceballos and Martial

    Yes?

  29. mowgli26

    Pope
    Dunk, Robbo, Lundstram, Montoya
    KDB, Salah, Sterling, Trossard, Perez
    Kane

    (Greenwood, Wickham, KWP)

    Had a decent couple weeks with this team. Worth using FT2 to get Pukki in or Perez out?

    Thanks in advance!

    TAA, Sigurdsson, Wilson to Lundstram, Sterling, Pukki for -4?
