Blanks for Sterling and De Bruyne as cheaper City differentials return

Burnley 1-4 Manchester City

  • Goals: Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) x2, Rodri (£5.4m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m)| Robbie Brady (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) x2, David Silva (£7.6m) x2 | Jeff Hendrick (£5.4m)
  • Bonus: Jesus x3, Rodri x2, David Silva x1

Manchester City put four goals past Burnley on Tuesday evening but, in keeping with the season so far, there was still plenty of frustration to be dished out to Fantasy managers.

A late Robbie Brady (£5.5m) strike made it five league matches without a clean sheet for Pep Guardiola’s side, while well-owned premium midfield options Kevin De Bruyne (£10.3m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.9m) weren’t involved in any of their side’s four goals.

Indeed, City’s three goalscorers last night were all Fantasy Premier League differentials, with ownerships of less than 5%.

There was at least further reward for the FPL bosses who punted on cheaper alternatives David Silva (£7.6m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.9m), who both bagged a brace of assists.

While semi-frequent rotation in the wide areas puts a dent in Bernardo’s appeal (he has started just nine of City’s 15 league fixtures, although one of his absences was enforced through suspension), David Silva continues to shine in the mid-price midfield bracket.

He continues to be overlooked, too: he sits in just 8.0% of FPL squads and only 3.74% of the top 10k teams, despite being only two points behind Sterling and offering better value for money (based on points per million spent) than any other City asset.

Sterling (14) and De Bruyne (13) are the only outfielders in Guardiola’s side who have started more games than Silva (12) this season, with the veteran Spaniard’s most-recent benching at Liverpool owing much to an injury he carried into the game.

His underlying stats are significantly inferior to Sterling’s but then, of course, they should be given that he is over £4.0m cheaper.

While his second assist was of a fortuitous nature – a blocked shocked falling to Rodri (£5.4m), who hammered home a superb strike from distance – he had earlier teed up Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) for the Brazilian’s first goal and created more chances than anyone else on show.

Jesus himself caught the eye, although let’s not forget that these were his first goals in 11 matches for club and country and that this victory over the Clarets came just days after the striker put in a poor showing at St. James’ Park.

Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) mightn’t be out for too much longer, either: we know from Guardiola’s recent comments that he will miss the Manchester derby but his availability beyond that is uncertain.

Still, credit where credit is due – Jesus’ first goal was a superb curling effort to break the deadlock and his second a tidy volley from close range from a teasing Bernardo cross.

His movement caused Burnley’s backline problems all game and he almost grabbed a third when firing narrowly off-target in the second half.

Guardiola said of the Brazil international:

We need Gabriel Jesus. The strikers are there to score goals. We need him. His effort and commitment is always there. He’s very important for us.

It is not easy to replace Sergio, but the team doesn’t have doubts about him.

Strikers score sometimes, sometimes not. We need the quality of player up front to make the difference.

I’m so glad for him. He is a fighter. I want him to try and be aggressive in this position. It is important to have the mentality. No doubts about the quality. I’m so optimistic about what he can do, he scored two exceptional goals.

As for Sterling and De Bruyne, the pair could easily have been among the attacking returns again following their goals in Gameweek 14.

Only an outstretched Nick Pope (£4.7m) boot prevented Sterling from tapping in the Belgian’s excellent low cross from point-blank range, although it should be said that that was about as good as it got for either player in Lancashire.

It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong with Sterling from an FPL perspective, as he wasn’t particularly wide – an accusation that has been levelled at him this season – at Turf Moor last night.

Nor have his underlying stats taken a dip from 2018/19 (on the contrary, in fact), for those that pay heed to the numbers.

Perhaps it’s the continued absence of the explosive Leroy Sane (£9.3m) that has prevented City from really opening teams up and thus provide space for Sterling to exploit, although the England winger did haul without his teammate on occasion last season and earlier in this campaign.

Whatever the reason, he doesn’t look quite the same threat we know he can be at present.

Goals have never been the main part of De Bruyne’s game and his “worldies” against Watford and Newcastle underscore the fact that he is a scorer of great goals, rather than someone who regularly gets on the scoresheet.

His own form has perhaps taken a slight dip since his return from injury but he still looks like he could grab an assist at any moment, such is his ubiquitousness in open play and at set-piece situations.

For those clinging on to the two premium City midfielders, there was at least some good news: the pair were substituted midway through the second half with perhaps one eye on the Manchester derby, while Sterling avoid picking up a fourth booking of the season that would have caused him to miss Saturday’s match.

It was Sterling’s replacement Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m), incidentally, who wrapped up the scoring with a fine solo goal.

Owners of City’s defensive assets would have been peeved at the concession of a late consolation as the hosts had offered little in the way of attacking threat before that, with Rodri dominating the midfield and the recalled Nicolas Otamendi (£5.0m) having a comfortable match at centre-half.

In Burnley’s mitigation, injury deprived them of a left-back, one of their first-choice central midfielders and one half of their first-choice strike duo, while it was asking a lot of Danny Drinkwater (£4.4m) to stem the City tide in his first league start since 2017/18.

Charlie Taylor (£4.2m) and Ashley Westwood (£5.4m) were both absent entirely from the match-day squad, while Ashley Barnes (£6.3m) was only fit enough for a half-hour cameo off the bench in the second half.

Sean Dyche said of his injured trio:

Chaz [Taylor] is a hamstring, maybe for the weekend, we’ll have to wait and see.

Westy’s groin, got a chance for the weekend by protecting him tonight.

Barnesy’s been more of an ongoing thing. He did great to get out there at the weekend but it looked like it affected him, so we had to protect him for tonight.

Easier tests await the Clarets’ assets in Gameweeks 17-19 (and beyond, depending on your view of Manchester United) but the medium-term outlook is not so appealing, with Dyche’s side second-bottom of our Season Ticker over the next ten Gameweeks.

For owners of Pope, the hope will be that he can compensate for any clean sheet losses with save points – and the England custodian indeed picked up one of those on Tuesday, making four stops.

    Hate that amazon took all the games. Such a late timing for us in SEA.

      Don't think times changed because of Amazon did they? Think there's usually midweek games this time of year

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Kick offs time have changed

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yes I'm pretty sure they did. They separated them by 45 minutes so people could watch the second half of one game after the other has finished.

        1. MoManeTaa
          • 2 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah

    2. Holmes

      Happens every year

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        No it doesn't, this is the first time.

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Timing is probably different but midweek games always happens

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            Midweek games have, but he's referencing the time changes, although the 20:15 game is only 15 minutes later than normal.

    3. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      If anything they moved some games 15 minutes earlier and for the UK we can actually watch all the games legally for a change. Up for more Amazon and less Sky.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Nothing to do with law.

        Me too. Think I'll watch the goal show tonight rather than one specific game and then watch second half of Liverpool

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          What a plan.

    5. SackWenger
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      This is a midweek set of fixtures played in the UK as opposed to the usual weekend times.

      If you were aware of that anyway then all that has changed is, instead of games kicking off at 7.45pm or 8pm (UK time) the majority now kick off at 7.30pm, with one other game kicking off at 8.15pm.

      1. Wild Rover
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, all but one are actually earlier than usual so not sure what the problem is

        1. mox81
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Yep loving it! Sky feels so outdated vs Amazon's approach of actually thinking about the fan experience.

    6. Yoshioka
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Midweek games will always be evening kick-offs in England otherwise the stadiums will be empty.

      1. SackWenger
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yep, bar the occasional bank holiday 26/12 and 1/1 for example.

        Play them at the Etihad and no-one will notice the difference

    I am yet to have an Arsenal or Spurs player this season.

    Tell me I’m special and beautiful?

    2. Holmes

      Nothing special about not having Arsenal players but I can say you are smart 😛

    3. Fuddled FC
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      You may still be beautiful but not that special..neither have I for example and I've a feeling we are not alone

    4. Slartibartfast
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I owned Pepe for a number of weeks. Think that makes me special, just not in a good way.

    5. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year

      Have Son, had Auba but anything except that is waste of money. Alli now just getting started (maybe worth monitoring Lacca, Aurier and Kane).

    6. teneighty

      Beautiful in a special way.

  4. unitednations

    7 months, 1 day ago

    What to do this lot with 1.6m

    Heaton -- Pope
    TAA Lundy Tomori -- Rico Lascelles
    KDB Pulisic Mane Mount -- Cantwell
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    Frustratingly 0.3m short of Mount > Alli.

    1. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Lascelles to Kelly - mount to Alli ?

      1. unitednations
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        That was my planned move till lascelles price dropped. Now 0.1m short of that move! Would have been ideal:((

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

        I can however do Lascelles/Mount >> 4m def + Alli.

        Hanley or Kilman would be the best 4m def that might play in gw18

    2. lindeg
      • 1 Year

      why do you still have lascelles?

      1. unitednations

    Just done a bit of basic comparison for those considering a keeper swap from now. Nothing fancy - some difference in games played.

    Ryan:
    PPG 4.3 Saves 56 Bonus 11
    Henderson:
    PPG 4.2 Saves 37 Bonus 2
    Guaita:
    PPG 3.9 Saves 34 Bonus 4

    Upcoming games...(up to gw30)
    Ryan: 5 easy 2 hard
    Hendo: 9 easy 4 hard
    Guaita: 8 easy 2 hard
    (others are 'average difficulty')

    1. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years

      Sheffield have been consistent and other two have been hot and cold though

      1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

          An easily correctible decision, I think

      Yep

  8. KINGS

    Rico 3 bonus points a joke

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      indeed

    2. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Why?

      Other players on the pitch were joke

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        A player who plays 64 mins without attacking returns or stopping a pen should never have 3 bonus

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Why? He kept the CS, as simple as that.

          Its not Rico's problem that other 21 players on the pitch were so poor.

      2. pumpkinhead
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Does he deserved 3 bonus because he was taken off early?

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          No but he deserves 3 BPs because he played better than other players (according to BAPS rule). Thats what bonus pts are for.

          1. pumpkinhead
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            He only did 'better than everyone else' because he was subbed before they conceded.

        2. pumpkinhead
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          If he's on the pitch he'd be on 0 bonus points, why are players rewarded for not being on the pitch?

          1. Holmes
            • 6 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            Problem is in CS points he is getting, change that and BPs will automatically get sorted.

            Would you say a player who got subbed at 59mins and his team kept a CS deserves clean sheet points?

    3. pumpkinhead
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Absolutely. Even more of a joke that half my ML is getting him off the bench for a jammy 9.

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        That would make me feel like assembling them in a small room and grenade it.

        1. pumpkinhead
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          It gets worth some of them have Kelly and Rico + Martial and Tammy or Mount starting. Could get both.

    4. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Oh well

    5. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years

      Only if they had changed the rules during the game to make it so.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Likely remaining on my bench unless Tammy doesn't feature (grrr).

    6. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Would prefer a rule that cs for subbed player would not count if team concedes.

    7. Klein
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      IMO its the BAPs system that is at fault. Its all stat and nothing of quality. A back pass by def to gk is the same as a insane backheal one two pass in mids. His CS point is fair as he was not on field when team conceded. Only when RC is it still counted.

    Alli & Son hatricks and Ole sacking too much to ask for?

    1. Rhodes your boat

      Yep, I’ll settle for son hattrick

    2. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes. Just a Son hat trick please, and one Alli assist for good measure.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        I am a bit worried about 2 x 6 - 0 thrashings and Ole keeping his job.

  11. KINGS

    Is Kane overlooked?

    1. Christina.

    2. lindeg

        A if it had been a playing 4.4, but 4.3 with with Masuaku as one of your options I would say B. Dele + a decent sub mid.

        Fist pumping etc.

        Or a nice respectful subdued approach to this (like Ronaldo when he returned).

              @Reckless

              I'm curious, though, if this is also a great way to bring Kane in.

              1. pumpkinhead
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 1 day ago

                Not sure I want Kane just yet. I want to see him banging them in before I shell out the $ for him instead of Son or Alli.

              Better ask Frank.

                7 months, 1 day ago

                Puli is never nailed, has Mount and CHO who can play on the left.

                  Is your questions if Tammy not playing means that Puli is nailed this week or moving forward?

                    Apologies if already asked and answered.

                    Manchester evening news are reporting Martial out for this evening? How liable are they?

                      Good. It is based on who got off the bus. Unlikely Martial just late in that SSN (and supposedly Spurs) knew he wasn't playing yesterday.

                          Alli is playing as a second striker and the team is scoring goals for fun.
                          Otherwise Dilva? or punt on Grealish early maybe?

                        It was based on Abraham being out for 3 or 4 games...he may be back sooner than I thought

                          at least give him the next game against Watford.

                    Seems like people still don't know that Martial lives close to the stadium and hates riding the bus. He will play, calm down.

                      i think some people don't want him to play so bench points kick in.

                        Owned him since gw2, then I benched him every time he returned until I got rid of him two weeks ago. Don't feel like bringing him back. But thanks.

                      Just go Cantwell and invest the funds elsewhere.

                      Just shy of Grealish, or Barnes (Lei).

                      Hmmm, Moutinho, Traore, El Ghazi? Or just simply go Cantwell and save cash.

                        Yeah always .1 short innit.
                        I'm thinking Trossard!

                        Would be nice for that gameweek for sure

                      Cantwell or find the extra 0.2 and get someone like Grealish/Harry Wilson/McNeil.

                        Only sensible way for me to find those .1 extra is by downgrading Rico to Kelly for a hit.

                    Got 2FTs and no major issues.

                    McGinn to Grealish look good?

                    I assume Tammy won’t play so all those jammy bench points will flood in

                    Have a feeling Vardy is going to be on the bench tonight
