Injury worry for Aguero’s owners as Sterling is frustrated by VAR call

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

  • Goals: Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) | N’Golo Kante (£5.0m)
  • Assists: Rodrigo (£5.4m) | Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Mahrez x3 Kovacic x2 Kante x1

Fantasy and reality declined to intertwine as Manchester City came from behind to defeat Chelsea.

Goals from Kevin De Bruyne (£10.2m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m) kept City’s title defence the right side of possible, but the match was close to disastrous for most Fantasy managers.

Of the ten players on show with significant Fantasy Premier League (FPL) ownership figures, only De Bruyne (39.8%) delivered, although VAR was at its fractional worst when deciding a late Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) goal was offside.

That denied 33.4% of managers a first return from the England winger since Gameweek 10, but the 20% with Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) in their teams had it even worse.

The striker blanked for the fourth time in his last five games and then limped off after 76 minutes.

Coach Pep Guardiola was less than optimistic with his initial assessment of the injury, saying:

It doesn’t look good for Aguero. It’s muscular. The doctor said we will see tomorrow. I’ve no idea how long he will be out.

Rodrigo (£5.4m) and David Silva (£7.6m) also had to be replaced on Saturday, although Guardiola was considerably less worried about the pair and said:

For Rodri and Silva it is more tiredness and cramps. Rodri was out for a month and games like today are so demanding, but with determination and suffering in certain moments, we did it.

Aguero has lost more than half a million managers over the last six Gameweeks and is already the second-most-sold player ahead of next weekend’s trip to Newcastle United.

The injury problem aside, things could – and really should – have been rather different for the Argentinian on Saturday. He was gifted a superb chance when Chelsea keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga (£5.5m) passed the ball straight to him, but he could only hit the bar with the goal at his mercy.

It was the finish of a man way below his best; a man who scored eight goals in the first six Gameweeks of the season and has managed just the one since.

Small wonder that his ownership is on the wane, with Sterling’s similarly affected.

To call the midfielder ineffectual against Chelsea is almost too kind. He created no chances and his only shot of the game was then wiped off by VAR.

Yes, the offside decision was marginal. And yes, although it was technically the correct one, it was another example of VAR sucking the soul out of the game one measly millimetre at a time. But the goal, had it stood, would have been harsh on Chelsea and decidedly flattering for the otherwise anonymous Sterling.

He’s now blanked for three straight matches and with a triple header of Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester City to come from Gameweeks 16 to 18, it’s no surprise that he’s currently the only player suffering more sales than Aguero.

City’s win was down to the industry of De Bruyne and the consistent threat of Mahrez.

The Belgian equalised when his shot deflected in off Kurt Zouma (£4.7m), a stroke of luck that turned a match that had been previously bossed by the visitors.

Mahrez’s winner capped a strong comeback by Guardiola’s men, the Algerian taking Rodrigo‘s (£5.4m) regulation pass out wide and weaving back inside before finding the bottom corner with his trusted left foot.

It was a goal enjoyed by only 3.5% of managers; a figure unlikely to shoot up any time soon unless the midfielder is given an extended run in the side. He’s started only six games this season and Saturday’s was his first since Gameweek 8, a fact almost certainly down to the one-match ban being served by Bernardo Silva (£7.9m).

Frank Lampard’s side allowed City just 46.74% of the ball – the lowest figure experienced by a Guardiola side in his 381 matches as a coach – and it was done thanks to a midfield three of Jorginho (£5.1m), N’Golo Kante (£5.0m) and Mateo Kovacic (£5.3m).

The selections meant a first match on the bench for the 32%-owned Mason Mount (£6.8m), but Lampard’s switch was more than justified when the latter pair combined for the opening goal.

Mount rightly caught the eye with his four goals and two assists from 12 straight starts this season, although his output had slowed to just one assist from the previous four Gameweeks heading into Saturday’s clash.

Kante, however, continues to surprise as an attacking force. He made consistent runs forward against City and was rewarded with a third goal of the campaign.

And before anyone shrugs and points out that Mount has 59 points to Kante’s 28, injuries have meant the Frenchman has only started five matches this season, and yet he’s scored in three of them.

Having played just 467 minutes so far – Mount has managed 1,054 – it seems inconceivable that Kante won’t now be given an extended run in the side if he can stay fit. His defensive attributes are world-renowned, but an attacking flair first unearthed by the much-maligned Maurizio Sarri could make him a bargain with one (or both) of Jorginho and Kovacic to hold the fort when he bursts forward.

Chelsea certainly have the fixtures to justify such a punt, with trips to Spurs and Arsenal the major tests to come over the next ten Gameweeks.

That should mean Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) keeps – or even extends – his game-leading 50.6% ownership in FPL despite a muted display at The Etihad which involved only two shots, neither of which were on target, and a mere two touches in the penalty area.

Similarly, Christian Pulisic (£7.4m) was lively enough to suggest his blank against City could well be the exception rather than the rule.

Of more concern to Fantasy managers will be the defensive shortcomings of both sides.

With Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) still a way off a return from his knee injury, City’s defence continues to be a fragile beast, which is bad news for the 15.7% with Ederson (£6.0m) in their teams.

At least he played on Saturday. The 13% invested in Kyle Walker (£5.8m) saw their man benched, a move which didn’t stop City conceding for the third straight match.

Chelsea’s backline is considerably more generous, keeping just three clean sheets all season, although the 8.4%-owned Fikayo Tomori (£4.9m) was a post’s width away from a second goal of the campaign that would have offset his lack of consistent defensive returns.

Should Lampard decide that his new-look midfield three is the key to both control of possession and increased stability at the back, Mount could be the major casualty. Next weekend’s team sheet for the visit of West Ham United will tell us more.

Explaining his decision to bench Mount ahead of kick-off, Lampard said:

It’s nice problem to have. Mason has been so good for us. There will be areas of rotation.

What seems clear for now is that their display, albeit a losing one, at The Etihad and their fine fixtures to come mean Chelsea’s assets should remain attractive for a long while yet.

The same cannot be said for City’s stars.

The side has a brittle feel to it this season and although their game management against Chelsea was impressive enough, seeing out a match ticks few Fantasy boxes when clean sheet points are no longer at stake.

And the form and fitness of some of their key attacking personnel, when combined with the inevitable downside that is Pep Roulette, could make continued investment a costly affair.

      Thinking the same, but maybe will keep him ..

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years

      Keep. If he doesnt start next then you will have to ditch.

    3. Big Troy Deeney

      Zaha???

      I prefer Moura if you have the money.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Just short of that. Rather use a hit to get Son.

      2. Kay317

        You think Moura is nailed?

  3. EL tridente

    Connolly to Ings?
    Will play Ings over Mcginn for the next few game Weeknd

    1. EL tridente
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Weeks

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Ings has done well, but is always one gameweek away from injury. Its a gamble but may pay off well.

    3. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm thinking the same. Have odoi and Connolly to deal with and thinking ings and traore

    Did Mount and Maddison to Son and Traore -4

    Pope Button
    TAA Lordstram Soyuncu Dunk Rico
    Salah Mane Son Pulisic Traore
    Vardy Abraham Mousset

    Thinking of moving Pope on after GW14. Really bad fixtures coming up. Rico also going.

    Overall quite happy with my team and slowly but surely starting to climb the ranks now. Also feeling confident owning no City!

    Damn I hope Mousset is ok. He is a cheeky asset at his price 🙂

    Should i play Maupay next week or take a hit to transfer in Ings?4

    1. The Units

      Not for a hit.

      1. The Units

        • 9 Years

        Not a supporter just a cheap hopefully playing def. Need funds to get Son in.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Understandable. Should have rather said Son in. 😉

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Haha yeah but I find it more interesting which players enable the move to a premium player.

        2. Slouch87 Nirvana Scott Tale…
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Hope the rest of your defence is good . Understand the downgrade to get Son. United defence is dire though - hopefully you won't need to play him.

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            It's not flash but would consider it marginal.

            TAA/Lord/Rico/Kelly/Lascelles

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

              That would be really marginal imo. Difficulty would be needing a double transfer to get a new defender later given price point.

              Kelly might get a game or so but that’s all and Rico has horrid fixtures coming up

    Mane KDB Mount tielemans
    Abraham Vardy jimenez

    Pieters, Cantwell, Kelly 4.7 ITB 2FTs

    A mount, pieters => pulisic, robbo (benching problem?)
    B mount, tielemans => madds, pulisic/son

    Think I am doing B with pulisic, or at least the first piece of it which is tielemans to Madds tonight.

    1. AndyCook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      How about Son and Pulisic and leave Maddison?

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        LEI have amazing fixtures coming up... not sure really. I want them all.

        And Rashford is also making a case, his numbers are looking great.

        1. AndyCook
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Maddison’s goal involvement percentage is really low, that’s what puts me off. You’re buying an extra ticket but the odds of winning are not much better..

          1. andres
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            what about tielemans?

            LEI have everton, that could be 5-0 easily...

            1. AndyCook
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              I am tempted to leave them all alone, Maddison, Tielemans, Perez, Barnes all have goal involvements that are quite small (Perez actually the best of the lot when on the pitch). You need 3 or 4 goals for Maddison to get a return on average, that’s not good enough for me

              1. andres
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                what about son's price, doesn't that put you off a bit?

                but I get your point - if you take out the SOT - LEI game out of the thinking probably the pair to have would be Soy+ Vardy only.

                That said I believe LEI will trash everton and their would be points in midfield.

            2. AndyCook
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Not that they are bad options, but real potential Pulisic should be better - based on stats to date. You could of course leave Son, not really fair to compare him as he is a lot more expensive but if I was getting Pulisic or Maddison I’d get Pulisic right now

              1. andres
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                there is the case of rotation possibly with Chelsea.

                But I would probably agree, there is more threat from Pulisic than from Madds.

                On the other hand, imagine Maddds scores that goal in the penalty, we would be all confirming the transfer and talking about consistency, wouldn't we?

  11. yakirh

    Mount to Pulisic today or wait for Friday and lose 0.2?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Is Pulisic nailed? Or be in the mix for rotation after reading Lampards comments.

      1. yakirh

        I honestly dont know, but he is currently on fire

    3. andres
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      that is a good question. It was really interesting to hear from the guy that finished in top 10k for 10 years or so, he never doesn early transfers...

      That said I am going to do a transfer tonight to avoid the effect you are mentioning.

      1. yakirh
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        We just love that TV don't we?

        1. andres
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          nah, it is more about executing the option you want, 0.2 can stop you from being able to do the transfer.

          That said most of us would be actaully decreasing our team value by selling mount.

      2. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        His reason was that he makes better decisions on Fridays rather than early on. 😀 You can't deny his reasoning though given his history.

    4. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Always wait with CL midweek. Points over value.

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        this is true, much can change after CL. I usually wait when there is CL, this time tempted to pull the trigger. Especially on Mount as I wanted to sell him for a while now, since he is playing deep.

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Mount isnt playing deep, and he is still first 11 imo. Won't loose his spot this early imo.

      1. AndyCook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Could easily be but good fixtures and easy to swap out

      2. AndyCook
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Plus the stats favour him versus Maddison, Martial, Moura etc right now

    1. Peter Ouch

      surely that will change in the next GWs?

      VVD found out

      Its difficult knowing the actual reason, even Klopp would want more CS's but it's the way they are playing by always attacking through the flanks and mids/defence higher up the pitch. I think it will come to a point when they will have to shut the shop and this is the right time for them to do so. Being at the top and keeping cleanies every single game is not easy.

        Utd did it for years

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Liverpool havent won the PL in about 28 years?

          You dont expect them to be calm and keep cleanies easily woth the pressure on being at the top. I think that will change soon though with the upcoming fixtures.

            The upcoming fixtures started yesterday - i blame the greatest defender in the world

            1. ZeBestee
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Palace away is not easy. Last season was also a battling one for Pool.

    7. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year

      I think they need Tyrone Mings with VVD as CB pairing, Lovren isn't all that bad but Mings is an upgrade + their wing backs are ever attacking

    8. FOO FIGHTER
      2 months, 1 day ago

      We are not conceding many though. Guess it is just lapses in concentration and no settled CB pair.

      Do not think Klopp is really phased about cleanies to be honest. He just wants wins and is exactly what he is getting from his team.

    Evening guys,
    Pope/Button.
    TAA/Bellerin/Soy/Tomori/Prodl.
    KdB/Martial/Mane/Mount/Donck.
    Lacazette/Jimenez/Vardy.
    1FT .1 ITB
    Thoughts on..
    Martial & Mount -> Son & Cantwell.
    For a -4.
    It would solve a benching problem every week,

    1. Whitetiger14
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm thinking of taking out cantwell. Had him for weeks and waste on the bench

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Would not take out Martial before Villa at home .....roll ft and do both next week for free

      1. Luggy10
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I have exact funds to do it now.
        Son will rise again this week, so it will be out of reach.
        Cheers for your input.

    Would you WC this team? Can’t find any other way to get both mane and robbo. Have 2ft and 0m

    Pope — Heaton
    Taa Lundy Tomori — Rico Lascelles
    Sterling Kdb Martial Mount — Cantwell
    Tammy Vardy Rashford

    0.2m short of Lascelles/Sterling/Rashford >> Robbo/Mane/Ings

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Can’t have em all - why on earth would you want to ship rashford

    2. AndyCook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Just move Cantwell for another -4 if desperate

  20. Coys96
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2FT:

    1. KdB + Sterling to Alli/Maddison + Mane/Salah

    A, B or C? 

    A) Mount to Pusilic
    B) Willems & Connelly to Clark & Son (-4)
    C) Willems to Robertson

    Current team:
    Pope 
    TAA Lundstrom Soyuncu 
    Mane Mount Son KDB Maddison 
    Abraham Vardy 

    Subs: Connelly, Rico, Willems

    Yay or nay?
    Got mount as well

    1. DNFPL

      Yes yes yes

  23. Hazz

    Evening all. 2 FTs. 5.6m ITB(!)

    Pope
    TAA / Pereira / Lundstram / Janmaat*
    Mané / KDB / Tielemans / Mount
    Vardy / Abraham

    Button // Cantwell* / Connelly* / Rico

    What do you think is better?

    A) Janmaat/Cantwell > Robertson/Pulisic
    B) Janmaat/Mount > Robertson/Pulisic
    C) Cantwell/Connolly > Pulisic/Jimenez
    D) Janmaat/Mount/Cantwell > Kelly/Pulisic/Son (-4)
    E) Cantwell > Son (bank 1 FT)
    F) Cantwell > Pulisic (bank 1 FT)

    Whilst Robertson is tempting, I can't see me wanting to play 4 at the bank with TAA/Pereira/Lundstram. Lundstram on 4 YCs is annoying, but Rico and whoever can cover for that GW?

    D is tempting.

      Pulisic.

    Watching yesterday’s match of the day.

    How didn’t firmino get an assist for Mane goal?

    1. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      He did not pass to Mané. The pass was from Robertson & the Firmino touch did not alter the delivery from Robertson

      1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Is that not irrelevant?

        If firmino touched it to Mane then how is it his assist?

      2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        E.g. - If Robertson shot and it hit Firmino before it went in then who’s goal would that be? Firminos......
        So how is an assist different?

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Check the rules buddy... I have seen even more clearer assists than that not given this season.

          Fpl assists are a hot topic on it's own but Firmino's touch wasn't an assist imo according to the rules, pretty clear & obvious imo

    2. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Exactly. He definitely got a touch!

      1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        It’s clear as day, I’m watching it in slow motion as we speak....

        You and I were speaking about which way to go with the third pool asset recently. I was a firmino advocate, did you join me!?!
        Did Haller to firmino for a -4, feels good!

      Puli

  27. pingissimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    On past form this is exactly when Pep would rotate his prime mids

    Post IB
    Busy schedule
    Easy fixtures sandwiched by top 6 match ups

    Thoughts?

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Possibly but he has a few injuries to consider now so doubt big players are at risk when he needs to make up ground.

  28. Pat Butcher

    Rashford or Jiminez?

    A bit early but who scores more this week:
    a) Maddison + 4
    b) Son

    Will see CL games midweek but have a feeling Spurs can put 4-5 past Bournemouth
