Returns for De Bruyne and Sterling owners but doubts remain about City assets

NEWCASTLE 2-2 MANCHESTER CITY

  • Goals: Jetro Willems (£4.6m), Jonjo Shelvey (£5.0m) | Raheem Sterling (£11.9m), Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m)
  • Assists: Miguel Almiron (£5.8m), Christian Atsu (£5.4m) | David Silva (£7.6m)
  • Bonus: de Bruyne x3, Shelvey x2, Martin Dubravka (£5.0m) x1

A late Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m) stunner reminiscent of mid-90s Tony Yeboah almost stole all three points for Manchester City at Newcastle but, thanks to a long-range Jonjo Shelvey (£5.0m) equaliser, the champions have dropped vital points on Tyneside for the second time in 2019.

Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) put the visitors ahead after some scrappy in-box interplay with David Silva (£7.6m) resulted in a calm finish into the far corner past Martin Dubravka (£5.0m). He could easily have scored a second in stoppage time, his low volley bringing a good save from the Slovakian after a glorious pass from de Bruyne.

Amidst the emergence of some fantastic mid-priced midfielders and the Jose Mourinho-inspired rush to get Tottenham Hotspur assets, Sterling has been sold by over 600,000 managers since Gameweek 11.

Whether it’s frustration over his three preceding blank Gameweeks or the need to raise money, a lot of faith had been lost in the 24-year-old. Even this goal was out-performed by de Bruyne, who claimed three more bonus points.

What may still concern owners is that six of his eight league goals have come away from home and only one assist has been registered all season.

Sterling has 15+ goals and assists from both 2018-19 and 2017-18, so to have only set up one goal by Gameweek 14 is alarming. He is also one yellow card away from suspension.


De Bruyne had an unremarkable afternoon before his stunning strike, offering a consistent set-piece threat against a side known for their feebleness in such situations but was unable to create much in open play, apart from the occasional wayward shot.

The Belgian has scored in two successive matches, just as the assists have started to dry up. It would have been difficult to sustain the astonishing rate of ten assists in nine games, considering the seasonal Premier League record is 20, so his 40.4% ownership will be delighted to see him already on four goals. Until this season, he has never scored more than eight for Man City.

Newcastle quickly responded to Sterling’s goal via Jetro Willems (£4.6m) after being teed-up by Miguel Almiron (£5.8m), letting the ball run inside onto his right foot and firing home.

That means a remarkable nine of their 13 goals (69.2%) have come from defenders. The loanee from Eintracht Frankfurt has flown under the radar this season with his two goals and two assists and is owned by just 2% of Fantasy Premier League bosses.

Up next for the Magpies is a trip to Sheffield United, before facing Southampton, Burnley and Crystal Palace, making Willems an interesting differential at a time where not many reliable clean sheets options are emerging.

Pep Guardiola must be frustrated that his defence conceded to the side with the league’s lowest expected goals (xG) total of 10.71. Although their failure to keep clean sheets isn’t as bad as Liverpool’s, it is now four unsuccessful shut-outs in a row for a high-line back four that looks particularly vulnerable.

Hindsight says that failing to replace Vincent Kompany was a mistake, especially once Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) suffered a long-term knee injury against Brighton in Gameweek 4. It has forced Guardiola to fast-track with his plan to convert Fernandinho (£5.2m) into a centre-back, usually alongside the unconvincing John Stones (£5.3m) or Nicolas Otamendi (£5.1m).

Furthermore, his handling of Benjamin Mendy (£5.7m) suggests he is not impressed by the left-back and upcoming games against Burnley, Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester don’t offer much optimism.

Fernandinho was booked for a foul on Joelinton (£5.7m) but it was the pacy Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) who troubled City the most. The unpredictable but exciting Frenchman likes to bamboozle defences and caused occasional trouble for the also-quick Kyle Walker (£5.8m). St James’ Park was cold and quiet today but there was a buzz whenever Saint-Maximin received the ball.

Of course, the summer signing from Nice is still without a goal – just like Almiron – but his constant threat will pass the ‘eye test’ for managers looking for a cheap, rotation-proof differential. He limped off shortly before de Bruyne’s screamer but it looked purely precautionary.

Steve Bruce said of the French winger:

He’s sore. He had a sore one just before half-time but I’m sure he’ll be OK.

The thigh injury of Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) gave Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) a rare start, despite tallying an impressive 26 goals from his 39 previous league starts in England.

In truth, the Brazilian had a quiet game. He linked up quite well with both Sterling and Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m), setting up half-chances along the way but, apart from a 68th-minute shot at Dubravka, produced very little threat to the well-drilled Newcastle defence.

David Silva is now the game’s fifth highest-scoring midfielder with 67 points, keeping things ticking over with another assist – his sixth of the season.

Before being replaced by Bernardo Silva (£7.9m), the former Valencia man chipped in an inviting cross to Jesus at the back post which just missed any sort of vital contact.

The Portuguese Silva was only given a place on the bench after his return from a one-match suspension, gained for a controversial tweet sent to teammate Mendy. His cameo began in the 69th minute and, within a few minutes, had already caused the Newcastle defence more problems than Mahrez did.

Reflecting on the game, Guardiola said:

It’s what we’ve lived the last four years. We found a way and today, we found it again but unfortunately, at the end, we conceded a goal.

We could not score all the chances we had; they scored the two chances they had. Sometimes it happens.

It’s the game we expected, solid, with ten players in the box, we played so well. We tried to win the game. Maybe they pushed a little bit, that situation didn’t happen too much. We played well and Dubravka made good saves. We arrived in front of the ball many times, unfortunately, we could not score.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dubravka; Manquillo, Clark, Fernandez, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin (Atsu 81’); Joelinton (Gayle 70’).

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Stones, Mendy; De Bruyne, Gundogan, D Silva (B Silva 69’); Mahrez (Foden 69’), Jesus (Rodri 84’), Sterling.

    Come on you Saints! Finally something to cheer about

      Keep Djenepo or upgrade to someone?

      1. Ginkapo FPL

        I watched the game. He is dreadful.

      2. SouthCoastSaint
        • 8 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Id upgrade but ignore below. He was by no means dreadful. Played too far out wide. Looks really threatening. Got an assist too. Boufal looked excellent when he came on. Not sure I’d back anyone from saints bar Ings. Hopefully his minutes are managed as he’s so injury prone

  2. rokonto

    Keep de bruyne and sterling?

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Ditched KDB for Son 2 weeks ago. Sterling to a performing mid priced mid frees up so much cash (Maddison, Pulisic, tielemans etc)

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Only KDB.

    3. Tcheco
      • 2 Years

      One more game for Sterling then Alli comes in

  3. Rude Reviewer

    Time has come to prove my decision right to go Auba over Vardy!!!
    Auba 4 goals
    Vardy 1 yellow

  4. Duffy Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Can the PL please start each Liverpool match with the score 1-0 against them, to save the agony, since it's inevitable?

    1. SouthCoastSaint
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Should have been a Dunk hat trick

  5. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    Got a feeling Sterling will be 'rested' against Burnley with Bernardo taking his spot.

    1. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      I think sterling may play central and Jesus drop out, think he was the worse performer

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Jesus Raz Bilva will be top 3 IMO

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Does he risk Sterling getting a YC though?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year

          Constant threat that'd be huh

    Any chance of getting Mark on an upcoming Scoutcast. Miss his face.

  8. S.Kuqi

    Which one should I do?

    Pope -> Henderson
    Martial -> Pulisic

    Pope
    Taa-Lund-Soy (Aurier,Kelly)
    Mane-Kdb-Son-Martial (Cantwell)
    Ings-Vardy-Jimenez

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Pope to Henderson

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Thanks. Altough scared not to have any Chelsea players

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          11 days, 2 hours ago

          Same here but I feel we can survive for one more week.

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Let's see how Martial does today. I'd be tempted to keep if he hauls and probably do Pope to Hendo.

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        My plan was to sell him after this gw. ManU are useless going forward and two tough fixtures next

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          11 days, 2 hours ago

          If he doesn't do well today you could consider moving him on.

    3. Earn your Spurs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Why sell Pope? He's one of the top FF scorers. I've far more important things to do with my squad!

    4. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Pope to hendo.

      But I also have a question of how many people are brave enough to have keeper and defender from same team? Basically Lord Lund and Hendo?

  9. marzo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    If there is positive news on Abraham think my next move will be
    Pope-> Henderson. What do we reckon?

    Pope.
    Robbo, Soyuncu, Lundstram.
    Pulisic, Mane, KDB, Salah, Cantwell.
    Abraham, Vardy.
    Button, A. Smith, Williams, Wickham.
    1ft. 0.3m ITB. Still have the WC if that helps.

  10. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    Mount a definite sell now or keep for one more game?

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Sell

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Sell

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Have Pulisic too so probably a sell now.

    3. Gobigorgohome
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      sell

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      I’d hold for one more unless you have Tammy still

      Think he’s now guaranteed a game and I’d be wary of moving on a starter this week

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        I have Pulisic too.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          11 days, 2 hours ago

          Oh - that’s tough. Probably sell I guess

          Do you have a spot for Pérez? He’s really high on my watchlist.

    5. Earn your Spurs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Sold him last week - TV raves about him but poor FF returns

    6. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Sell, but the question is who?

      Lots of love for son atm but I maybe tempted by Alli, question is do I risk getting him in for midweek away at United??

      Good move or leave till the next weekend?

    7. Le4therbarb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Depends on your team set up. He is my 4th Mid, in a 3-4-3, I am keeping.Assessing over the next 3 games, before he is moved on.

      1. n14mul
        • 2 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Fair point, only burning issue is there are so many players scoring points this season so there is a big temptation to move on.

    8. Twitter: @Ze_Austin

      There's Zaha... If you're tempted 🙂

    Sterling essential?

    1. CostaCoffee

      No

    2. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Nah, too expensive for what he's been offering for a while now.

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        He scored this week
        Last week he had his goal ruled Offside.

        He has been the best player in a bad city team for weeks.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          11 days, 1 hour ago

          Best player i disagree !
          KDB Dilva better options & performers than him for me

    3. Bossworld
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Sold overnight, brought in Son instead due to price drop/price rise. Burnley away is a tempting fixture but something's not quite right with City at the minute.

  12. CostaCoffee
    • 6 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    Anyone else have a player they should’ve sold weeks ago but just want to keep the faith? Mines Hudson Odoi, I’ve benched him most weeks but thinking of starting him over Martial midweek

    1. Earn your Spurs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Sterling, see below

      And should have got a Leicester defender by now

    2. marzo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      I think Salah fits the bill for me.
      I should def be moving him on at this stage you'd think..

      1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        I think the same, but i know I'll hold him because he has become a great differential now. And is nailed

    3. Amey

      Salad

  13. Earn your Spurs

    Sterling to Mane for free - Yes or No?

    Mane has 3 great fixtures and far better form, but misses GW18

    1. The Overthinker - I blame R…
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes

    2. Thunder Warrior
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes

    3. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Get Mane now. He has the fixtures to justify even taking a hit in gw18.

  14. Vitamin C
    • 5 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    I'm disappointed not of (K)ane,but because i benched Dunk though my gut kept telling me that he's gonna deliver......

    1. Ian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 days, 23 hours ago

      You need a word with your gut, there is no way it should have been whispering those things.

  15. Wild Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    11 days, 2 hours ago

    Rather than sell Pope, I think now is the time to get a second playing keeper. Get's you through Pope's difficult fixtures and also makes to BB ready

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      *makes you

    2. n14mul
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Good point by I feel this season with the lack of clean sheets most keepers are useless

      1. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        11 days, 2 hours ago

        Check Burnley at home and Palace against bottom 13.

        Actually predictable if irregular cs

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      11 days, 2 hours ago

      Good thinking

      I’m very keen on Guaita but he’s been a bit injury prone so may keep Pope in reserve.

      Now have a TV that matches my high of last season so two keepers seems reasonable in my case

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Might follow this

    Sterling would need a major uptake in returns to be considered again - particularly since he’s on four YC

    Can only see his ownership continuing to go the other way

      Not that you've said this, i fully expect him to blank midweek

        Well, three out of twelve is more statistically soothing than the prime numbers...

          Yeah. Just that i want him to blank against Manchester United 😀

    What to do with Salah? Doesnt seem worth the money at the moment but has some nice fixtures coming up. Would swap fro Alli, already have Son, but not liking the Man U fixture.

          This is a season of affordability

          With so many bargains everywhere, you can afford a few overpriced players who bring points 🙂

          Heck, I'm getting Rashford in GW18, and I don't consider him anywhere near the value of Jimenez, Tammy or 8.9m Vardy

            Yea fair point, I really fancy a Sheffield double up so think I'll be opting for hendo.

            Thanks for your input.

      Considering either Henderson or Guita myself. Was also tempted by Gazza but Spurs look shaky at the back.

    I think it is fair to say there should be no fear anymore going without City assets when other FPL options are outperforming City assets 😉

      Oh and feel for those who got Jesus in and even capped him...

        To be benched for rotation or get that 5th yellow - no thank you

        Still think he’s cities best asset and could explode at any point but even if he did I’d be wary to bring him back

      Started the season with KDB and feel he is a keeper with the good price. Also dare I say it but feel he is less likely to be a rotation risk.....probably jinxed my self for midweek now!!

    What is the general thinking around what to do on GW18? (Liverpool not playing plus some tricky fixtures for the most popular teams/players).

    Captain choice also looking a difficult one.

    1. Wild Rover

      I'm playing BB in gw17 so should have a full team to enable bench all Liverpool. Not worried about Chelsea or Leicester fixtures. Capt is a bit tricky, will decide nearer the time. Everyone is in the same boat so don't fret about it.

      Currently have 2 pool players and may save my transfers and ship them out for that game week.

      Thank fully I have my WC to get them back in and sort my team out for GW19. Dare I ask how many people have a wc left?

    4. CONNERS

      I currently have triple Pool so would have no bench that week. Might swap Mane out for Sterling and bring him back in GW19.

    Anyone else tempted to keep Aubameyang a little longer to see how they play with a new manager...

    I have WC and had planned to activate it today!

      Son. More proven. But I'm actually tempted to double up

      1. Bobby9
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        That yu can double up after man utd match!!! 🙂

      2. n14mul

        Chances of doing something at old Trafford?

        1. Bobby9
          11 days, 1 hour ago

          I personally think that doubling spurs players vs man utd wont be nice!!!! ...we hve to consider the opposition too (rash/martial)...imagine if pogba comes man utd gets even stronger!!!!

        Not sure about Son being more proven than Alli, both have good records over previous seasons.

    Why all the love for Guaits over Hendo as Pope replacement?

    1. Mr Q
      • 4 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      This, since Kelly is there for 0,9 less...

      1. Jurgen Flopp
        • 5 Years
        11 days, 1 hour ago

        Are you going to play Kelly when you have Lundstram, a Leicester defender and possibly Liverpool defender?

        1. Mr Q
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 22 hours ago

          Fair point

  30. Mr Q

    Keep pope or time to let him go?

    Can stretch to 5,0 keeper. Who?

    1. manu4life99
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Same. Hendo vs Guaita can't decide

    2. Jurgen Flopp
      • 5 Years
      11 days, 1 hour ago

      Guaita

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Keep and buy another one. Henderson or Gazz seem good
