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.

      14 Home players made the decision for me (Only KDB playing away)

      1. Deulofail

        BB doesn't give you 14 home players though...?

          5 days, 22 hours ago

          Do you realise the crap to get those 14 player? A) You move SGW players you want fot DGW players you don't like.
          B) After that yo use a chip or cost you money to get the team you want afterwards.

          1. Deulofail

                This what WR? Maybe explaining badly but the trouble we go through to get all the DGW's together, you will realize many times you actually don't want the cheap guys. The ones worth having give you a bench headache after the DGW.

                1. Deulofail
                  • 3 Years
                  5 days, 21 hours ago

                  Probably not just the explanation, but also the irrelevance.

                  You said your decision was made by BB and a hit giving you 14 home players. But:

                  - BB gives you 2 home players
                  - BB (-4) gives you 3 home players

                  I really can't be much clearer than this. You're the only one talking about double gameweeks. Hope it works out for you, though I personally don't think the rationale behind the decision is strong.

                  1. Kopkloppers
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years

                    You have a bad night last night bud? I understand what you say. I think it the other way round. I will have 14 home players. The bench has no bearing as KDB is my away player and he would play no matter what. This means all benched players will have home fixtures, they all should play, hence the BB. Wow!

                  2. Kopkloppers
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    5 days, 21 hours ago

                    Assumption on your part but not probability.

        2. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Sorry Aurier also away.

          1. Deulofail
            • 3 Years
            5 days, 22 hours ago

            BB gives you 4 more players. Depending on how you were planning to lineup, I'd say that would have given you 2 home fixtures. Add one more to that after taking a hit for another home fixture, means you BB is giving you more like 2 home fixtures, or 3 home fixtures (incl. -4 points and probably minus ~0.5 money available for the squad, assuming your last GK was cheaper) rather than 13 or 14.

            Just saying 😆

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              5 days, 22 hours ago

              It is possible to have 15 home fixtures. I want no issues with rotation. (Box ticked) I want to avoid messing up my team trying to Get DGW's late in the year. If a team is out of any league/Top 4/Top6/Relegation rotation at the year end creates havoc. Say if Dendonker has a DGW do you class that as good planning?

              1. Deulofail
                • 3 Years
                5 days, 22 hours ago

                ?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              5 days, 21 hours ago

              Your logic is based on me playing the away contingent from the bench. Not so.

              1. Deulofail
                • 3 Years
                5 days, 21 hours ago

                Just Aurier

      2. JoeJitzu +42
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Wow, 14 at home. Outside DGW this is most obvious BB
        Best of luck to you!

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 days, 22 hours ago

          Yeah. I think of all the fiddling in recent years getting a full DGW squad. The chip sends people off on tangents.

    3. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Quite possibly. Everything else is looking in good shape. Kapser in maybe.

  2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    think I might be set for next GW:
    Pope
    TAA,Van Aanholt,Soyuncu,Lundstram
    Mane,Son,KDB,Maddison
    Vardy,Jiminez

    Button, Mount,Rico,Connolly

      Looks good

  3. EgyptianKing

    5 days, 23 hours ago

    Hi mates.

    Do you think Mount to Pulisic still makes sense for midweek?

    1. The Units
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 23 hours ago

      Did for me except I got alli.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Looks a good move!

        My fear with Pulisic is a rest midweek

        1. The Units
          • 9 Years
          5 days, 22 hours ago

          Yes that is the risk with chelski at the moment along with Man City.

    2. Houldsworth Hatter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 23 hours ago

      I would

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Thank you.

        Seems good for next GWs but tbh I fear a rest midweek

    3. HD7
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      If you have a good bench, yes

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Yes if you accept some rotation.

  4. Soonmixdin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 days, 23 hours ago

    Morning all, just contemplating what to do for next GW (rapidly coming up on Tuesday!). Got the following squad:

    Pope Ryan
    Chilwell Robbo Lundstram Maguire Dunk
    KdB Mane Maddison Dendoncker Romeu
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

    Squad Value = £101.5m (£1.1m ITB) and I have my wildcard to play!!

    Really want to find a way to get some Spurs players in now (as does everyone else). I need to lose Maguire so I suppose that Aurier could be an option, also would like one of Alli/Son/Kane (Dele looks like the best option for now).

    Suggestions welcome on how to restructure.....

    1. HD7
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Spurs seem leaky at the back for now. This is why Im selling Gazza. Of course you might try Aurier for attacking returns but I would choose one of Alli/Son for now

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Id wildcard soon tbh. Two awful midfielders, get one set GK in and get rid of mags for Rico or Kelly

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Strip cash from defence?
      Maguire to Aurier gets one

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      Dendo and Rom limit you big time. 101.5 include 1.1 itb?

  5. HD7
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 22 hours ago

    1 FT, 1.7 ITB

    Gazza*
    TAA Lund Robbo
    Mane KDB Maddy Pulisic
    Ings Jimenez Vardy

    Subs: Button, Willems, Hayden, Rico

    Gazza to:
    A) Hendo (it will be a double with Lund for their nice fix)
    B) Schmeichel (as I havent got a Leicester defender)
    C) Guaita - Im not sure If hes nailed?

    1. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      A if you still have wildcard, C if not

      1. HD7
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Why does it matter if I have a WC?

        1. Jullepuu
          5 days, 22 hours ago

          Henderson doesn't have good long term fixtures meaning that Guaita could be better if you don't have your wild card

    2. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      All good tbh. Maybe b

    3. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Guaita is 5m.

    2. Stef rocks

      I don't get it how Pope Guaita will give you cash for Zaha?

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        Think he means sell Guaita, buy Pope?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

      Definitely wouldn’t sell TAA. Like you, I’m a Pope owner considering bringing another keeper in, but I’d probably do it for McGovern.

        Lol selling TAA is close to madness. He is close to double digit haul every week!

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          3, 2, 1, 7, 2, 2, 10. The facts don't quite back that up. That's the last 7 GW scores for TAA.

          I do admit I wouldn't be overly comfortable with that move though.

              I'm not sure it's right mate. If I don't feel comfortable with it then it's probably not a move to do.

  9. Ayew injured

    A) Alli and Greenwood

      Yes. I think that there will be a drop off in performance sooner rather than later. I see them more as a mid to lower table team ultimately. They have got lucky with some of the clean sheets and won't score too many. Well organised though.

    Mane KDB Son Puli *Saka*

    Vardy Jimi (Abra INJURED)

    I got Abraham at 7.1 so stalling on moving him on...

    But... Abraham > Laca / Firminho.
    Or

    Rico Soy VVD Lund Kelly
    Mane Sterling KDB Mount Dendonc
    Vardy Ings Jiminez

    2FT
    0.2ITB

    A. Mount to Zaha - free and roll a transfer
    B. Mount / Tomori / VVD to Zaha / Kelly / TAA

    Will most probably WC GW 18. Any thoughts on this would be great! Thanks all.

    Potential helpful info (?) ... I’m a Saints season ticket holder and the team, despite yesterday’s result, quite literally freeze at St Mary’s and looked petrified (the crowd are all over them at the moment). Away from home however they play with far more freedom so it would be wise to look at the Saints fixtures the other way around to usual i.e. away fixtures are actually preferable at the moment.

      Good point,i kinda got that feeling too.

  20. Hansel

    A) Alli + Aurier 5th defender (others: TAA, Soy, Lund, Tomori)

    B) Son + Kelly/Williams 5th def

    1. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      B, as too much in defence

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Lose Tomori

    My cup match comes down to vardy captain + 1 point

    Vs

    James mousset vardy

    Think I'm in trouble?

    1. Don Rogers FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      I hope you are in trouble because I bought in Mousset for Tammy and I have not captained Vardy.

      However, I think Vardy = Mousset+James is a fair ask.

    "scrappy in-box interplay with David Silva" .... it was a beautiful back-heel from El Mago!

    1. JoeJitzu +42
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 22 hours ago

      I was thinking the same.... he saved what was scrappy play with the back heel!

      1. Devo-McDuff
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 22 hours ago

        I didn't notice it until the replay. Maybe they didn't watch the replay!

  23. AYLD28

    Ended GW9: 1.1 million
    Closing in on GW14: 16k

    Don’t think I can quite believe how I’ve turned this around. Buying Jimenez, Vardy and Son all early has really pushed me.

    Vardy, Chillwell, Jimenez and Martial to hopefully push me into the top 10k today! Good luck all!

    1. Lindelol
      • 1 Year

      Nearly similar story for me and Vardy captain was the main reason.

    2. JoeJitzu +42

      Well done, always good to hear these stories when you’re languishing near the 1M mark!
