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.

      Midweek EPL games are historically rotation territory

        A fair point, but if someone has all the nailed players , who are crucial to their team, think that can work well

        Sick of no clean sheets from liverpool and spurs 🙂

    3. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years

      No way. Gazza to someone else for sure but dont ditch Robbo unless you've got TAA as well.

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Yes I've got TAA as well 🙂

      Kelly

    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…

      Willems

  5. diesel001

    Two poor goals concede by Pope. Could have saved both of them.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Definitely
      It has started the Zaha wagon here too 😀

    2. Hazz

      Second one was Mee's fault.

      7 months, 12 days ago

      Yes both near post and shows his dip in form. Pope to Henderson is the transfer for people with WC still. Guaita was lucky to get Cleanie though plus 5mn is too much for CPl defender. Might as well spend 5.5mn and get their OOP Van Anholt

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        PVA isn't OOP. He's just a sometimes-offensive fullback.

  6. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Cant believe I sold KDB this week. First real bad move this season.
    Sold for Son. Should I try and get him back this week or save FT and reasses and lay in the bed I have made!?
    Double Pool defence is getting in my nerves too!

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Soy Lunds Rico
    Son Mane Maddison Pulisic Cantwell
    Tammy Vardy Jimi

    1. SouthCoastSaint

      You sold for Son? Why is this an issue.

    2. Eat my goal!

      • 1 Year

      Did the same - I’ll shift mount on to Kdb in a couple of GW’s

      No rush imo

      1. Rinseboy
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        any ideas what to with my pool defence?!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Again same boat 1 keeping for the next two and then shifting 1 before GW18

          Think of them as mids who are returning

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      If you're calling like-for-like switch (points-wise) your worst move, then things aren't exactly bad.

      Would leave it now. Will cost you more took get him back.

    4. Rinseboy
      • 8 Years

      thanks all

    5. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      That's exactly my team except Cantwell to Saka and more money itb!

      Dont panic that's a good team mate!

  7. balint84

    Do you know anything about Cahill? Will he play next?

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Go PVA or avoid.

      1. balint84
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        CP have many CS gaainst smaller teams + good fixtures

        1. RECKLESS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          They have kept just 3 CS entire season so no. Compare LEI with 6 and one match less played

          1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            That is not a true reflection of the picture.

            They’ve played Tottenham, wolves, city, arsenal, chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool in their first 14 games.

  8. RECKLESS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    I dont know what stops me from captaining Vardy over Mane/Salah!!
    Last season mids scored way higher than forwards and Liv being better team than Lei maybe plays on my mind. But have kept captaincy on Vardy vs Watford next and feel now Mane/Salah will outscore. Captaincy affect your points by 7% according to that ffs article some days back and that is close to 150 pts. Plus any given week Mane/Vardy both have great matches and form. This stupid luck factor separates 1k from winner :/

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Last season forwards did fine. If you look at cut off in GW22 Kane and Auba we’re exactly matching Sterling

      They fell off in second half Of season due to injury and rotation.

    1. RECKLESS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      With again weekend match, I feel he will start from bench

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        As player being hopeful is different from actually being fit. I remember Pogba declaring fit to play after international but will return vs City. I know this is small injury but atleast a week to heal after being stretchered off

    2. HollywoodXI
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      As a Tammy keeper, I hope this is true!

      1. RECKLESS
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        I did Tammy to Ings for free and it paid off.. PLus Ings could ris eby 0.2mn this week and Tammy fall by 0.2mn so could be cheaper to buy back on weekend

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          I decided to play C.Taylor who got 1 point rather than bring Ings in a for a hit. Have no money in the bank so don't want to lock myself out of getting Abraham back in soon.

    3. Atimis
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Fit for a bench or a starting XI, that is the question

    4. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hopeful not nailed

  9. Atimis
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Pope to Henderson and save the second FT ?
    Should be GTG ?

    Pope*
    TAA/Soy/Lund
    Mane/KDB/Pulisic/Maddison
    Auba/Vardy(c)/Jim

    Button/Tomori/Hayden/Rico

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Nice moves - i wanna find 0.1 for Pope to Henderson.

      1. Atimis
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        Surely you can make some def downgrade ?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Taylor to Kelly or Pereira to Chilwell/Soyuncu

          1. Atimis
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Both looking really good tbh

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Arteta and Howe shortlisted for Everton and Arsenal. I hope we get Howe but not a lot in it. Arteta wants to avoid Arsenal atm IMO

  10. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 12 days ago

    Martial over Son (during poch) a few weeks back now feels like a very silly decision. That damn price keeps pushing up too.
    Might have to be Alli

    1. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Alli will be more value long term anyway I reckon

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 12 days ago

      Alli looking a very good option. Wish I could fit him myself.

      Any info about pogba !!!!

      Will he be there against spurs???

        I have up to 5m available to replace pope. Who's the better option?

        A) Henderson

        Or B) Guaita

        1. Van der Faart
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Henderson

          1. Jurgen Flopp
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Guaita. Only 0.3m more than Henderson.

        2. Pukki Party
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          B

        3. Atimis
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          A as don’t have 5.0 but don’t trust CP soo much anyway

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Neither. Buy Martin or Henderson as a backup keeper.

      3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 12 days ago

        If Abraham is fit...
        A. Abraham and Alli (1 move)
        B. Abra and Martial (no moves)
        C. Ings and Son (2 moves)

        1. FirMinaMiMo

        2. Shark Team
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          Best replacement for Pope?
          Guaita or Henderson
          *I also own Lundstram

          1. Van der Faart
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            How confident are you in defensive double ups? I'd go Henderson if so.

        3. Van der Faart
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 12 days ago

          2FT here.

          Tempted to make the move to 3-5-2 with Abraham out take the risk of not getting him back in.

          Pulisic, Dendo and Ings to Zaha, Dele and Connolly (-4)

          Leaves me with

          Pope (Gazza)
          TAA Lund Soyu (Rico Kelly)
          Zaha Madds Mane KDB Alli
          Jimi Vardy (Connoly)

          Worth a -4?

          1. antis0cial
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            I wouldn't want to lose Ings right now. The three transferring out could well outscore the 3 coming in, esp with the -4

          2. Shark Team
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            Pulisic has great fixtures coming and ings has form and fixtures so I would say no...

          Have both Mount & Tammy, who do I get rid first or both? Have 1FT and 0.3 itb...can always save the FT and reassess next GW

            Mount depending on Tammy fitness though

            Wait for team news and see what the story is with Abraham injury first. If you can withstand another price drop that is.

          How's this WC looking (already puled trigger). Happy with starting 11 but do I stick with Rico/Tomori? .6itb monitoring Tammy fitness, would go Jime or ings if not fit

          Hendo
          TAA Soy Lund
          Mane KDB Son Ali Zaha
          Vardy Tammy

          Martin Mousset Tomori Rico

            Kelly for Rico is popular over the next 7 GW's. Son and Alli may be too much Spurs. Pulisic, Ings and Jimenez (instead of Son, Tammy and Mousset) may give you a better balanced team, with good bench cover over the busy period.

              Thanks, appreciated. Kelly for Rico is a good call if he keeps his place. I’m Liking the spurs double up the way Morinho is setting his team up so I’m happy gambling on that. Jime will come in if Tammy injured, Tammy still great value if fit.

                Cheers. Good luck. Not sure if it's better or worse to only have 2/3 days to tinker with a WC team... 🙂

          A) Use FTs to plan a decent gw18 side without hits

          B) Use FTs to build a BB squad gw17 (but require a hit in gw18)

          BB gw17 would be Henderson,Aurier,Zaha,Soy

            I am happy so many wC's holding to get the best out of the missing fixture.
            I used early when it was clear how individuals we playing and massive surgery can be sorted early.

          How you like this team?

          Schmeichel

          Button Kelly Aurier Jorginho

          Subs in right order? 1 FT and 1.0m ITB. Should I save transfer or do Button to Henderson and play BB? Any other ideas? Cheers.

            Arteta and Howe shortlisted for Everton and Arsenal. I hope we get Howe but not a lot in it. Arteta wants to avoid Arsenal atm IMO.

              New deal that PL signed for next three seasons.

              Amazon also have all (10) the Boxing Day fixtures.

              But BT are showing all (10) of the New Year fixtures. BT also have all (10) of another set of midweek fixtures.

              Wait for news on Tammy. Many doing some version of A. Which I probably will myself.

          6. FDMS All Starz
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 12 days ago

            I’ve noticed that when spurs attack, they go 3 at the back pushing Aurier forward as much as possible, saw him a lot on the right wing yesterday and should had a goal/assist...surely a volcano waiting to explode? Get him in after Utd or their defence still too unstable?

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Think their defence will come good but will take a few more games.

            2. Van der Faart
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 12 days ago

              Defence is still a mess. But Aurier is getting into some great positions and his crossing is excellent. If Jose can stabilise the defence and start churning out the clean sheets then he'll be a great asset. The problem is the keeper. Gazza doesnt give the defenders the same confidence Lloris does.

                  Two yellow n red vs saints?

                    • 8 Years

                    Sorry forgot that game. Yes he was sent off. Two yellows in a couple of minutes. Still only 2 yellows technically this season. Far more card magnetty players than him this season so far

            Tammy & Mount —> Ings & Alli

            Would leave me with:

            Mane KDB Alli Martial Maddison

            Remaining wildcarders, when are you planning to use it?
            Is it too much of a gamble to activate now with quick turn around in games?

            Have keeper change to make, more zaha, spurs mid and possibly Ings upgrade soon

            Trying to work out when is best to use, cheers

                Right, not much to lose then besides a bit of rotation if I use it now

            Anyone who watched the last 2 Spurs games... does Alli pass the eye-test? Is he becoming more and more central to Spurs, or were they lucky goals? Does it honestly look like the start of a true leg of form?

              Everyone trying to squeeze Son in but Alli will offer far more value for money in the long term in my opinion.
