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.

    3 each for Haller, Tammy and Salah please.

    If Mount is 100% out, I'd like Mings to do an Otamendi a bring home the bacon.

    Then we can all head to Winchester for a pint and wait for this GW to blow over.

    Sheff Utd's average positions are super weird. I know they play with overlapping CBs but these positions are all over the place.

    What's even more hilarious is that Jagielka had almost the same average position as Henderson.

    How does this WC team look?

    Pope

    Auerier Soyuncu Otamendi (Lundstram Rico)

    Son Mane KDB Mount (4.5)

    Abraham Aubameyang Pukki

    1. Sailboats
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      26 days, 19 hours ago

      I would want at least 2 Man City attackers on a WC

      1. Viper
        • 9 Years
        26 days, 19 hours ago

        There's funds there that would allow me to do Aubameyang - > Aguero actually

        1. Drop the Dendoncker
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          Do that

    2. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      26 days, 19 hours ago

      Its okayish. No Salah and Liverpool def could really hurt your rank.

      Not sure if Auba is worth that pricetag

      1. Viper
        • 9 Years
        26 days, 19 hours ago

        Can't play the game in fear 😉

    3. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      26 days, 19 hours ago

      Any way to find the cash for Mane to Salah?

      1. Viper
        • 9 Years
        26 days, 19 hours ago

        In this draft there's funds over for Mane - > Salah but I also have my eyes on those funds being Aubameyang - > Aguero

        1. Tomerick
          • 5 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          I prefer Auba over Aguero and Salah over Mane.

          1. Viper
            • 9 Years
            26 days, 19 hours ago

            Realistically how many times over the next 5/6 would I be captaining Salah though

            1. Tomerick
              • 5 Years
              26 days, 18 hours ago

              Doesn’t matter he is much more reliable than Mane for only slightly more. Could feasibly captain him in 3 of the next 6 and have it work out.

    4. Bob Vrabkab
      • 7 Years
      26 days, 19 hours ago

      Looking good vipe, well balanced with plenty of captaincy options

    5. Trossard or not Trossard
        26 days, 19 hours ago

        I think that's a fantastic team!

      • Super Saints
        • 3 Years
        26 days, 19 hours ago

        Aurier transfer waiting to happen, keep the funds to upgrade him to Liverpool defender
        Aguero in form of his life, scored in every game, could of had 4 yesterday, playing for best attacking team in world atm.

        1. Viper
          • 9 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          There's 1.3 leftover in this draft so Aubameyang - > Aguero an option

      • Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        It’s almost exactly the same as my team, so obviously I want to sleep with it.

      • grooveymatt65

        good shout with Mane and no liverpool defence same as me! and yeah don't worry about no liv defence or salah its good to be different!

        1. Mr. Captain Blanc
          • 2 Years

        2. mookie
          • 6 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          Otamendi cheaper, nailed and fairly attacking kinda rules Mendi out as an option for me.

          1. Wilshere Knowledge
            • 6 Years
            26 days, 19 hours ago

            You’ll miss 3 assists before being subbed off with a cruciate on 59 minutes though...

        3. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          Probably never this season as Zinchenko did pretty well in his absence, they are likely to be rotated.

        4. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Never. Too many left backs and Pep has shown in the past that he doesnt trust him 100%.

        5. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          26 days, 19 hours ago

          What with Laporte out, I am not sure Pep would risk starting another player would can’t defend very well. Would be fun to watch, though. Loved owning him last season.

        6. Drop the Dendoncker

I'm sure others will be in the same position...

                  We are very sorry to learn that a handful of #FPL accounts appear to have been hacked overnight.

                  As things stand, this appears to be limited to high profile players and there is no evidence that this is a wider issue with FPL. We will, of course, be monitoring the situation closely and appreciate there may be further developments.

                  If you have been hacked, or know of someone who has been, please let us know. We are trying to build a list of targeted individuals so we can understand the scale of this hack.

                  At this stage, we cannot offer a resolution to those who have been hacked other than to encourage you to report the issue to Official FPL.

                  However, we can offer advice to everyone else to protect themselves from a hack in the future:

                  - Log out of FPL on every device
                  - Change your FPL password

                    Damn. Does that mean Neale and Andy's teams can't be recovered?

                      I think I remember one guy on reddit last year who had his deleted team recovered. So they'll probably get them back

                        No this site seems way more secure than some others

                          This is a Wordpress site. Not secure at all. People break passwords when they are used repeatedly across common sites. I've reset my password here this season as it happens, Gmail too, etc. And am logged on here with a different email address to my FPL account. None of that by design, just chance.

                        If you you the same password both places then maybe

                        It's the latest status symbol. If you weren't hacked you're rubbish at FPL.

                          Unsurprisingly, my account seems fine.

                          On a serious note, it's sad to read about. Hope the issues get resolved soon.

                        If you are creating a new password ensure it's complex. Upper and lower case with numbers etc.

                          Yes, also Get/use a good password manager like Lastpass and have a really strong master password and you can create these for everything.

                        Not too worried about getting hacked in fpl as I’m not high profile but I saw some advice about two step something on your email. How do you know if you have this already and if I don’t already have it how can I implement it.
                        Thanks in advance

                          If you dont know you dont have it. Go to your email and find security settings and it should be there. Thats how it is for Google account at least.

                          If you can login to your email with just username and password you don't have two step authentication.

                        Use a password manager and have complex passwords

                        Crazy not to be using one

                        Even if you don’t want to pay use a free one like BitWarden - Chrome plug-in

                          I didn't realise the larger scale of the issue, it sounded big but didn't realise it had hit so many prominent players.

                          People should check they have an right anti virus/firewall setup on their machine first things first. Then change passwords if you are concerned

                          if they cant get their accounts they should start an elite hack league and all remake a new team and start from GW7, thats what I would do. And the game isnt over for them then

                                  12/13? Nothing that interesting really anymore the best times have gone. Just go whenever your team needs it

                                  Surely GW7 / GW8.

                                  Look at the run of these teams:

                                  From GW7: Chelsea, Man City, Norwich, West Ham
                                  From GW8: Arsenal, Everton

                                        I think you can make a good WC without West Ham tbh. I still think Digne is okay from GW8.

                                            A) Give up
                                            B) Study harder.
                                            C) Don't copy

                                            Definitely seems like point chasing but

                                            It takes a special kind of a “person” to do what was done to Dale, Andy and Neale (and potentially anyone else).

                                            Shame you can’t put the same time and effort into doing something good for the FPL community like they did (with their spare time at that).

                                            I know the likes of Dale (Chef) is considered a controversial character amongst many but NO ONE deserves to have all their hard work and contributions to the community violated and vandalised like they have.

                                            I hope some day you realise that this is a very sad and pathetic way to live your life and you come to know what it feels like to work hard on something with a passion just for someone to come along and destroy it for no reason.

                                                          Neale/Skonta is a writer on here. Think it's full time but I'm not sure.

                                                          On youtube you could easily earn £5+ per 1k views. Doesn't sound that much if you can get a few thousand subscribers that's a nice side income.

                                                        One gets paid to write FPL content on this site. Another has 55k subscribers on youtube and also runs a patreon which generates a nice little side income.

                                                        Obviously that doesn't justify getting hacked but you're making it sound like they're doing charity work.

                                                      Yeah, it's kind of pathetic and sad to hack someone's FPL team.

                                                        Why would someone do it? It has no financial value. Very strange.

                                                          someone with a grudge who took their advice and their team did bad for it? Seems a bit ott but yes some people are just like that.

                                                      Any hope Kelly doesn't play today?

                                                        There is always hope

                                                        But if Kelly doesn’t start then yes you get Lund points but would also mean he is now dropped

                                                          For 12 points I'd take that.

                                                      Chelsea triple up too much?

                                                      Have Tammy and Mount. Looking to get Tomori if he starts today

                                                        Too much , defenders not worth, unless emerson

                                                          Any better options for 4.5?

                                                          Tomori isn't a long term pick, triple Chelsea about as risky as triple United...

                                                          I think Tomori is a trap. Chelsea's defence is pretty woeful - plenty of better 4.5s out there

                                                            With their upcoming fixtures, I would wager even Chelsea will get some cleansheets. And he does seem to have some attacking prowess as well. As long as you have back up, then Tomori isn’t a bad shout at all.

                                                            Considering Mina to Tomori as my ft for next gw. Thoughts on my team?

                                                            Salah, Sterling, Kdb, Mount, Cantwell

                                                            Button, Mina, Lundstram, Wickham 1ft 0itb

                                                            Would then play Tomori and bench Digne for city.
