De Bruyne outshines Aguero as Sterling suffers first benching

Manchester City 8-0 Watford

Bonus Points: De Bruyne x 3, B.Silva x 2, Mahrez x 2

Manchester City demolished Watford 8-0 at the Etihad to bounce back in emphatic fashion from their shock defeat to Norwich City last weekend.

Amid all the discussion about Sergio Aguero (£12.2m) and Raheem Sterling (£12.2m) pre-match, it was Kevin de Bruyne (£9.8m) who cleaned up and proved to be the key FPL star.

That was set against a backdrop of Sterling’s first benching of the season, as Pep Guardiola opted to rest the most captained player of Gameweek 6 and broadcast to the world that the Roulette wheel is now in full spin.

Sterling spent the whole game on the bench, opening up the door to some fortuitous vice-captaincy scores

While last week it was de Bruyne who was dropped for the trip to Norwich, this time the Belgian put on an attacking masterclass in scoring one goal and registering two assists to collect three bonus points against Watford.

It was a timely reminder to those in possession of the absent Sterling, who did not come off the bench at all, that once Guardiola has rested his key personnel, they are always likely to do well the next time and should probably be retained.

The 36% owned de Bruyne put on an exquisite performance, yet the player who excelled for the Citizens was Bernardo Silva (£7.8m). The Portuguese midfielder scored a hat-trick to reward the near 12% of managers who had kept their faith in the attacking asset. Not a key asset in terms of captaincy for Gameweek 6, but certainly a powerful differential.

De Bruyne was in excellent form for Manchester City on Saturday

Bernardo had registered just two attacking returns this season prior to the fixture against Watford, but an explosive and clinical attacking display saw him take home the match ball despite a number glorious chances for his team-mate Aguero, who arguably should have had his hands on it too.

The Argentinian’s performance was certainly bittersweet for his owners as, despite scoring and assisting for a nine-point score, the Argentine could have matched his counterpart Silva’s hat-trick at the very least. 

A number of golden opportunities fell at the feet of Aguero, but the striker was unable to add to his initial strike, despite the exceptional team performance that he unquestionably contributed to throughout the 8-0 demolition.

Aguero arguably should have scored more than nine points but continued to deliver reliable returns

Either way, Aguero retained his record of scoring in every Premier League game so far this season, and despite a number of his team-mates putting in exceptional attacking displays, it is difficult to look past Aguero as being City’s primary source of goals in 2019/20. 

Whilst previous seasons have seen City’s starting striker berth be alternated between Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) and Aguero, Guardiola has seemingly put his faith in the Argentine as being the club’s first-choice striker. A midweek match against Preston should allow him to be rested ahead of a Gameweek 7 trip to Everton too, which is encouraging.

There can be no doubting that Aguero is not immune to potentially being rotated by Guardiola, yet for now, those managers without the striker may be asking themself if they should move for him.

Both Silvas racked up the points against a dreadful Watford side

Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) also sent a timely reminder of his explosive potential with a goal and two assists to record a 14-point score at the Etihad. Starting the game in place of Sterling, Mahrez tore through the Watford defence in an impressive attacking display, with a number of deft touches and mazy runs troubling the Hornet’s backline throughout the fixture.

David Silva (£7.5m) also delivered a typically reliable attacking performance with a goal and an assist in the rout, but whilst City’s attacking assets were mesmeric at the Etihad, there are some real questions emerging for managers in the Champions back-line. 

Mendy’s return to the starting line-up, while short-lived hints at left-back rotation moving forward

Given the long-term injury that defender Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) suffered in the game against Brighton, managers in ownership of the French centre-back were faced with a dilemma was to who could replace the defender in their squads. Those managers who opted for Nicolas Otamendi (£5.4m) were handsomely rewarded by the Argentinian centre-back with a mammoth 15-point haul, including a goal, an assist and a clean-sheet. 

Yet Otamendi’s eye-catching performance was not the only point of note from City’s defence, with Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) starting in place of Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.6m). Despite starting the first-half in impressive fashion, regularly bombing forwards on the left-flank, Mendy was taken off measure by Guardiola at half-time. 

Despite initial concern that Mendy’s substitution was injury-based, Guardiola allayed any concern that the Frenchman could be back on the treatment table, whilst also praising his replacement, Angeliño.

“He [Benjamin Mendy] is well but after two years playing only a few minutes, it [45 minutes] was enough. Angelino is an incredible nice guy, and is training well – he deserved to play. I saw many good things in him.” – Pep Guardiola

Otamendi now looks the ideal candidate to invest in the Manchester City defence

With the ongoing absence of Laporte, Fantasy managers will be looking to retain a form of defensive coverage from City, and whilst the scoreline of Saturday’s victory will naturally mean interest gravitates towards the Citizens’ attacking assets, there is an interesting narrative developing at the heart of City’s defence. 

Zinchenko appears to have lost his security of starts with Mendy’s return and whilst the enigmatic Frenchman has often rewarded managers with attacking returns in the past, it seems unlikely that he will start every week either. Instead, we might see Guardiola picking and choosing between his three left-backs

Therefore, a serious case presents itself for the reliable starter at centre-back Otamendi, who can similarly offer attacking output, but without the consistent concerns with regards to his fitness. 

For Watford, this was an unfortunate result but Quique Sanches Flores’ side came out of the traps exceptionally poorly and were unable to come back from their dismal start. 

Early-season interest in the likes of Gerard Deulofeu (£6.2m) has understandably simmered, whilst Saturday’s showing was also reliable advert as to just how unreliable Watford’s defence are from the perspective of solidity and clean-sheets. 

Given the Hornets’ poor start to the Premier League season that saw Javi Gracia lose his job after four games, it is difficult to even consider any Watford players as viable assets at such a volatile time for the club, and after today’s performance it is unlikely that managers are likely to be considering investing in their assets anytime soon.

    Lesson of the GW:

    Never bench Lundstram

    1. Ambrosiana Inter
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      Well

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      Could potentially get away with it if Greenwood doesn't play today.

      1. Annie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        No chance of that unfortunately

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 2 Years
          26 days, 20 hours ago

          Why do you say that Annie. There are rumours going around that he wasn't on the bus to London yesterday.

          1. Annie

            Just seen not spotted at train station. Don’t want to get my hopes up, but would be great news!

      2. Bushman
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        Yeah I need Greenwood or Kelly to sit out today. Fingers crossed

        1. Rash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Greenwood didn't travel

    3. Rhodes your boat

      Praying Diop sits today out

      1. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
        • 3 Years

        No chance I'm afraid

    4. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      Need a Guilbert benching to see those points.

  2. diesel001
    • 2 Years

    Sterling should have a good run of games now, barring injury.

    1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
      • 1 Year
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      I'm sure he will be straight back in, but Pep would also be justified with sticking with the same team that just won 8-0

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        Think he comes in for Mahrez. Bilva-Aguero-Sterling frontline against Everton.

    2. Old Gregg

      Carabao Cup mid week may give us a tip

      Lost patience after yesterday C and no start. Shipped for Son with 2.6 itb and ft to go

      May backfire on me but that’s the risk

      1. ChuckN
        • 9 Years
        26 days, 20 hours ago

        Yep Sterling gone for me. Easy choice now as I have Kun and KdB.

        Can't justify 12m+ on him any more. Especially as one of my ML is H2H cash league.

    @mods can you text Andy or Neale and let them know their FPL accounts may have been hacked please?

    1. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      We are aware of the issue.

      Very concerning. The thought that someone might deliberately hack Neale and Andy, who are absolutely lovely guys fwiw, is sickening.

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        Thanks Rotation. What's the advice on protection your account? Should you guys put something out?

        1. Rotation's Alter Ego
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years

          We don't know much more than you honestly.

          My recommendations would be:

          - Change your password. Make sure it's something you don't use for anything else.
          - Log out of all 3rd party extensions.
          - Immediately stop using all websites that request your FPL password.

          Screenshotting key information from your team is unlikely to help. Screen recording a video of your my team page and user profile etc might help, but I doubt it.

    2. Business Cat

      Andy already knows, and is understandably pretty gutted 🙁

    3. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Could it not be FPL themselves?

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        That's what I initially thought. Maybe it's a glitch with the site.

        1. Baked baines
          • 4 Years

          have you a link to the mods league?

      ****

      I did not realize this kind of thing was going on wholesale.
      That is a real bummer for anyone especially two great guys like Andy and Neale that give so much back to the game. 🙁

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Thanks for the kind words, folks! Obviously rubbish but will see what happens. Get your passwords changed etc in the meantime.

        1. DeadStar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          26 days, 20 hours ago

          Hi Neale. I'm gutted for you. Are you just waiting for a response from FPL? Out of interest, do you use any other sites away from FPL with your FPL details?

          1. Skonto Rigga
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 2 Years
            26 days, 20 hours ago

            I had registered with Fix many moons ago but I think that's by the by - Andy, for instance, doesn't use it.

            1. FPL Virgin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              26 days, 20 hours ago

              Really sorry to hear about what has happened Neale.

              Hopefully Mark and Paul can speak to someone at Official FPL about this.

            2. DeadStar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              26 days, 20 hours ago

              Ok. Well it sucks. I hope it all gets sorted for you and everyone affected.

    5. David Slade
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      Couldn't FPL do an IP check of where the account was deleted from? Surely if it is new then that is enough evidence itself?

  5. Grounderz
    • 7 Years
    26 days, 21 hours ago

    Stay safe, FPL managers. Lots of accounts seem to have been hacked.

    1. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      Should everyone reset passwords? Any IT people about to advise?

      1. GoonerByron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        Yes. If your password is not extremely secure then reset.

        All hacks have been done via access to email accounts so ensure email password is secure and different to FPL too.

        1. GoonerByron
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          26 days, 21 hours ago

          Also I’d hold off using sites that know your FPL details such as FFFix until more is known and if you have used these sites then definitely change password.

          1. One Wheels Enough
            26 days, 20 hours ago

            Is this a phone thing?

      I would do Digne to Ota next week after the game

      That’s my plan to save ft

      1. PUP02
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 21 hours ago

        Not concerned with the rise/fall of ota/digne during the week? With a WC in the bank, I want to preserve tv as much as reasonably possible.

        1. Sid1891
          • 1 Year
          26 days, 21 hours ago

          Agree
          But this would cost me -4
          Here is my choice 0.2 itb less or -4?

          1. PUP02
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            26 days, 20 hours ago

            Ah I see, fair enough. Makes sense to wait for you then.

    2. Kellz86
      • 2 Years
      26 days, 21 hours ago

      Digne to Ota imo, City have a much better defense than Everton and Digne simply hasn't been justifying his 6.2m price (yet). I'd trust City's defense over Everton turning their situation around any time soon.

      Keep Sterling another week and reassess. I can forsee a situation like KDB, where one week he gets benched, then the next week he will explode. I'm not so keen on Son, I think Sterling is the higher reward player. But hey what do I know?

      Good luck!

      1. PUP02
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        26 days, 20 hours ago

        Agreed, just wondering if it's worth getting son in for SOU then ota in after eve. Pretty sure I'll make the Digne > Ota move this week.

  8. Sid1891

    How was Mendy’s performance?
    Monitor and worth a punt next two weeks?

      2FA should be an option

      And incorrect login cool-off periods if the main login has in fact been brute-forced

      1. RFCSPACE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 20 hours ago

        2FA is pretty much a necessity these days for anything you want to keep properly secure. I can understand that FPL isn't really that important to most people but since it has become so popular in recent years and streamers/good players can make some decent money from content creation, FPL needs to be more secure.

      It is far worse.. most email accounts are well secure so i highly doubt it was easy to do.. I am just hoping ppl havent been giving away their passwords to 3rd party sites like ffix and using same passwords for multiple accounts..

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
        • 2 Years

        Could be one of the reason

        • 4 Years

        These 3rd party sites probably have bank details stored too which would be more of a worry if that's the access point for the hackers.

      Could be worse.. they could have done a -80 and destroyed their entire season, fpl should be able to reinstate them at least with their points still intact

    I wont lie, I got caught out with the Friday kick off, but thankfully had KDB (c) and Lundstram + Rico off the bench for KWP and Sterling. Sometimes you just get a fortuitous week.

    1. Bushman
      • 3 Years
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      Nice. I has one of those weeks last season when I had intended to do Kane to Auba but missed the Friday KO. Kane blanked and Auba got 2 goals and 3bp.

    Letting go of Digne, who should I replace him with?
    A. Otamendi
    B. Soyuncu
    C. Any other suggestions?
    Current defence: Rico, Lund, AWB, Mings, Digne

    1. Gudjohnsen

      A or B if you want to free up some funds.

    Not convinced on decent total score

    Team at the moment -

    Pope - Woodman
    TAA - Zinchenko - Pieters - Lundstram - Hanley
    Sterling - Mane - KDB - Son - Cantwell
    Wilson - Pukki - Wickham

    1 FT and 0m in the bank. The original plan was to do Zinchenko + Wickham + KDB ➡ Aubameyang + Hayden + Guilbert for -4 over the next 2 gws but KDB's form is mental atm. Selling him could be brutal.

    So, just Zinchenko ➡ Someone(who?) this gw or go ahead with my former plan? Thanks in advance. 🙂

      Just Zinchenko to Otamendi.

    2. La Roja

      Zinchenko ➡ Aurier

    Need a Mount no show to get Lundstram’s beautiful 12 pointer off the bench. I don’t think my precious little heart could taken another Lund haul sitting on the bench

    Walker to Ota on a free a no brainier? seems Ota more attacking prowess, won't get rotated and gives 0.6 itb

    1. Squeakybum99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes if there are no other problems to attend to.

      I don't understand this no brainer thing, but yes, it seems a good move.

    Protect yourself at all times fellow managers,it is a dangerous world out there.

    Make sure your fpl password is strong and is only used for the fpl site and never enter that password on a 3rd party site.

    If you have already compromised yourself i would advise you change your password to something strong and unique for fpl asap.

        Going by the comments it looks like some managers are being targeted and are after getting their accounts hacked.

        Terrible invasion of privacy and my heart goes out to anyone that it has happened to.

      • 5 Years
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      Not for -8. Pukki still great value .Laporte to otamendi only

    Pope heaton
    TAA digne ota rico montoya
    Salah Sterling mcginn Dilva mount
    Pukki haller greenwood

    1.7 ITB

    I was thinking of digne + greenwood -> Abraham + a 4,9 def for -4.
    Worth it and which def?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      Wouldn't your bench be a bit too strong then ?

      1. Defile
        • 4 Years
        26 days, 20 hours ago

        Yes perhaps. Could also digne + haller for Kelly + auba/Kane.

        Also WC still available but i don’t think it is worth it for this team

    Gutted I went for Son instead of KDB, is it too late for a swap after Game week 7 or I should just hold onto Son?

    1. Squeakybum99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      26 days, 20 hours ago

      All evidence says Kdb is a must. The home form is gold level.

    Currently have 2FT. Team is

    Pope
    Digne Zinchenko Matip Lundstram Hanley
    Mane Son Sterling KDB Ceballos
    Tammy Pukki

    Is Zinchenko to Soyuncu a good move this week to enable Sterling Ceballos Greenwood to Maddison Hayden and Aubameyang GW8?
