Vardy delivers again as De Bruyne eases injury fears

Fantasy Premier League managers who were brave enough to place their captain armband on a player from Manchester City’s win over Leicester were moderately rewarded on Saturday evening.

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) all got an attacking return each in the Etihad Stadium’s all-important clash.

We’ve got the Fantasy talking points from that match as well as information on wins for Wolves and Newcastle.

Man City 3-1 Leicester City

Goals: Riyad Mahrez (£8.3m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.2m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) | Jamie Vardy (£10.1m)

Assists: Benjamin Mendy (£5.5m), Raheem Sterling (£11.8m), Kevin De Bruyne (£10.4m)

Bonus Points: Vardy x3, Gündogan x2, Mahrez x1

Vardy may have been on the losing side of Saturday evening’s televised match but there were few complaints from his Fantasy owners at his 17th goal of the season.

As predicted by many in the FPL world over the last few days, Manchester City were indeed vulnerable to the Leicester counter-attack, despite controlling the match throughout.

Vardy had a number of opportunities to get behind the reigning champions’ questionable defence, showing why in Pep Guardiola’s time as Manchester City manager, no player has scored more against them (Six for Vardy, Lionel Messi, Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min all on four).

We had our first glimpse of the damage he could do in the 18th minute when Vardy found some space on the right.

He did well to get past Nicolas Otamendi (£5.0m) and square to Harvey Barnes (£5.9m) who could not add a decisive touch.

Those two Leicester players combined again in the 22nd minute when Vardy found the net.

Barnes played an excellent outside-of-the-boot through pass to put Vardy behind the City defence and the centre-forward won his one-on-one with Ederson (£6.0m) by dinking it over him.

Five minutes later, Vardy was in again, finding yards of space to get beyond Otamendi and Fernandinho (£5.2m). Unfortunately for his owners, he drifted a little too far to the left and shot over the bar from a tight angle.

Leicester were a little more subdued in the second half but it didn’t stop Vardy trying to get behind the hosts’ defence.

On the hour mark, he found the space on the right again and played an incredible pin-point cross to the on-rushing Barnes. He made contact just outside the six-yard-box, but could not get enough purchase on it before Ederson completely wiped him out.

It was certainly a performance from Vardy that suggested he can be trusted to get attacking returns against Liverpool on Boxing Day.

De Bruyne and Sterling also showed plenty of encouragement for the Christmas period.

Together with Mahrez, the Belgian, in particular, gave Ben Chilwell (£5.8m) an evening to forget, doubling-up on him on their right-flank.

De Bruyne was officially listed in the central midfield again, having been named in the front-three against Arsenal, but he did push forward into dangerous positions on Saturday night.

During the first half, he was advancing into the number 10 area while the majority of his touches came on the right across the course of the fixture.

He got his well-deserved attacking return in the 69th minute when he powered through the Leicester defence and squared to Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) at the back post.

It could have been much than that for De Bruyne as he set Sterling up in the eighth minute, who could not quite get his shot off under pressure while the Belgian also struck the post in the 14th minute.

There were concerns over De Bruyne when he went down and limped off in the closing stages but the player himself confirmed he suffered nothing more than cramps.

“Yeah (I’m okay). Just a little bit of cramps. It was a hard game, very open, the teams went all the way. In the end, my body said just take a rest. The grass was nice and soft.” – Kevin De Bruyne

Jesus also asked questions before finding his goal, forcing decent saves out of Kasper Schmeichel (£5.4m) in the first half.

However, it is possible that the Brazilian’s run in the team could be coming to an end as Sergio Aguero (£11.7m) returned as a second-half substitute against Leicester.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Mendy, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Walker; B Silva, Gündogan (Rodri 79′), De Bruyne (Aguero 90+1′); Sterling (Foden 89′), Jesus, Mahrez.

Leicester City XI (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Chilwell, Söyüncü, Evans, R Pereira; Ndidi; H Barnes (Albrighton 64′), Maddison, Tielemans (Praet 77′), Pérez (D Gray 68′); Vardy.

Norwich 1-2 Wolves

Goals: Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) | Romain Saïss (£4.4m), Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m)

Assists: Joao Moutinho (£5.4m), Matt Doherty (£6.1m)

Bonus Points: Cantwell x3, Emi Buendía (£6.0m), Jiménez x1

Raúl Jiménez (£7.5m) continues to punish the host of Fantasy managers who moved away from him several weeks ago.

He scored the winning goal for Wolves in their 2-1 win at Norwich on Saturday afternoon, his seventh one in the Premier League this season.

Crucially, it means the Mexican forward has now had an attacking return in seven of his last eight matches.

His bonus point from the match sees him increase his season score by seven, ensuring he remains inside the top six for value among forwards in 2019/20.

Whether Jiménez can keep up his recent form does remain to be seen though as it’s Manchester City (home) and Liverpool (away) up next for Wolves.

In truth, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were poor for large spells of their trip to Norwich, especially in the first half.

The hosts were by far the better team to begin with and Wolves only got back into the game when Romain Saïss (£4.4m) nodded home a Joao Moutinho (£5.4m) cross.

At the time, the 60th minute, the goal was very much against the run of play, although ultimately, Norwich lost the game because of their defensive frailties.

With Wolves not asking too many questions especially early on, it was a damning indictment on Norwich’s defence that they gave up the lead in the second half.

With Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) recently ruled out until February, Grant Hanley (£4.0m) was forced back into the team probably earlier than Daniel Farke would have liked.

However, the former Newcastle United man was praised for his performance by the local press. Furthermore, it is worth noting that due to long-term absences elsewhere in defence, Hanley, priced at £4.0m, could be set for a run in the team now.

“We were unlucky but we can’t use that as an excuse. If we took our chances and defended properly, we would have won the game.” – Grant Hanley

Ultimately, what truly cost Norwich was their poor finishing. As already mentioned, they were by far the better side across the course of the match, creating much better chances, but failing to put them away.

Teemu Pukki (£6.6m) made some excellent runs to cause the Wolves defence problems but was twice denied by an impressive Rui Patrício (£5.2m), who made a total of six saves at Carrow Road.

Alex Tettey (£4.5m) also hit the post in the first half after a powerful drive from range.

The only Norwich asset to find the back of the net in Gameweek 18 was Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) as he punished those who benched him once again.

He capitalised on a loose ball in the box following a Kenny McLean (£4.9m) to rifle home his fifth goal of the season, although he was still on 571,000 FPL benches.

However, Cantwell may find himself started by considerably more of his owners on Boxing Day when Norwich travel to face an Aston Villa defence that has conceded seven goals across their last two home matches.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Byram, Hanley, Zimmermann, Aarons; Trybull (Vrančić 86′), Tettey (O Hernández 87′); Cantwell (Srbeny 86′), McLean, Buendía; Pukki.

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Dendoncker; Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Doherty; D Jota (Neto 77′), Jiménez (Cutrone 90+4′), Traoré.

Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

Goals: Miguel Almirón (£5.8m)

Assists: None

Bonus Points: Almirón x3, Paul Dummett x2 (£4.4m), Martin Dúbravka x1 (£5.0m)

A belated first-ever Newcastle goal for Miguel Almirón (£5.8m) was arguably the only story to come out of a dreary affair at St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.

Crystal Palace dominated possession but could not offer too much in the way of any real threat as they continue to demonstrate they might not be able to deliver on their appealing set of fixtures.

Wilfried Zaha‘s (£6.8m) counter-attacking runs could not produce anything to truly test Martin Dubravka (£5.0m), Christian Benteke (£5.7m) was also denied by the goalkeeper and Cheikhou Kouyaté (£4.9m) headed over from a corner.

Newcastle were boosted in their attack by the return of Jonjo Shelvey (£5.1m) and Almirón to their midfield and Steve Bruce opted for a more direct 3-5-2 formation, featuring those players in central midfield with Joelinton (£5.6m) and Andy Carroll (£5.4m) up-front.

It was the former West Ham forward’s presence in the air that lead to Almirón’s goal while the Paraguayan asked questions of the Palace defence with his pace for much of the afternoon.

Shelvey also tested Vicente Guaita (£5.1m) with a shot from the centre-circle when the Crystal Palace goalkeeper was off his line.

It’s West Ham up next for the Palace defence which, through Guaita and Martin Kelly (£4.4m) has earned plenty of interest in recent weeks.

Despite failing to keep a clean sheet in either of the last two, after a spell of three in a row, there were some positive news for the Eagles’ backline.

While Scott Dann (£4.3m) was unable to overcome his yellow-flag, forcing Kouyaté to play centre-back, there was a welcome return for Patrick van Aanholt (£5.5m) at left-back.

Furthermore, Jairo Riedewald (£4.5m), who started at left-back against Brighton before going off with an injury was named on the bench while Mamadou Sakho (£5.0m) is now free from suspension.

Newcastle United XI (3-5-2): Dúbravka; Lejeune, Fernández, Schär; Dummett (Yedlin 90+3′), Almirón, Shelvey, Hayden (S Longstaff 64′), Manquillo; Joelinton (Gayle 77′), Carroll.

Crystal Palace XI (4-3-3): Guaita; van Aanholt, Kouyaté, Tomkins, M Kelly; McArthur (Meyer 86′), Milivojevic, McCarthy; Zaha, Benteke, Ayew.

    Is Maddison a seaon keeper?

    Son to Grealish this week then Maddison to Salah after. Double up with Mane.

    Or keep Maddison and get someone else for Son?

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      If I owned Maddi I wouldn't get rid.

    2. Kay317

    3. DontPiqueTooSoon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would keep for now and monitor to see if Liverpool double up is worth it. I am currently planning on it post Wolves game.

      Gambled at start of the season and regretted it. I would avoid.

    Mates any suggestion? 1 FT 0.3 itb

    Pope
    Chilwell, Aurier, Lundstram

    Thank you!!

        Alli?

        1. EgyptianKing
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          An option, definitely.

          Would you consider Son to Salah (and a Rash downgrade) for a -4?

        2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • 4 Years

          This

      • DontPiqueTooSoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I am in a similar boat. I am thinking Alli. I have been toying with downgrading Abraham to Greenwood and then Son to Salah. Thoughts?

        1. EgyptianKing
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Same here with a Rash downgrade.

          I think I may just do Son to Alli and wait a bit more to bring Salah

          1. DontPiqueTooSoon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Yeh. Thats what my gut says. Spurs have 3 good fixtures over Xmas. Alli will be nailed on to start them in Sons absence. I have Mane as Liverpool cover and want to avoid the -4 if possible.

    2. Trophé Mourinho
        2 months, 2 days ago

        why does everyone want everton players?

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

        Going terribly recently. With son out looking at a punt on Spurs attack:

        B) Pulisic > Alli

        Gazzaniga (Button)

          1. The Tinkerman
            • 4 Years

          I’d be more tempted by a Chelsea defender.

          Was my plan too, not so sure now. Son red has changed a few priorities though.

        6. Rebeltactics
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Watching him play he has been fairly unlucky to not score most games. I’d say hold unless something more exciting turn up

          1. DontPiqueTooSoon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I think he will come good. He is in good form and takes free kicks and pens. I am keeping a hold next 3 fixtures.

              Grealish looks a decent option or if you have the cash Salah/Mane.

          Pogba is exciting even tho I hate Man U players

            How did he look today?

              • 3 Years

              Didn't pay too much attention tbh so can't tell really

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year

              Not bad but too early

          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Haven't seen the Son red card but the text updates I got said it was harsh, any chance it may be rescinded?

          1. in sane in de bruyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Don't think so

      • Burger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Did Tammy go off injured earlier?

        1. Rebeltactics
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          It wasn’t clear. He may have pulled up as he knew he was going off. Was a quick sub

        2. michaelington
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Think it was tiredness or cramp.
          He was dancing with tomori at the final whistle so he’ll be fine.

      • The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        1FT, £3m ITB, trying to think long term. Which move do you like the most?

        A) Maddison > Richarlison
        B) Rashford > Kane
        C) Ayew > Callum Wilson

        1. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Don't really like any of them tbh, mate.

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Neither is tempting

          1. The Royal Robin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            To give some context, here is my squad. Any ideas appreciated. I could roll it but I just think there is a transfer to be done. Especially with that much cash in hand.

            Selling Ayew makes some sense but Jimenez and Ings' fixtures are awful.

            Guaita
            Kelly Lundstram Robbo
            Mane Maddison Alli Cantwell KDB
            Rashford Vardy

            Pope Ayew Soyuncu Rico

            1. Traction Engine Foot
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              I'd sell Ayew for Ings. He can score in any fixture.

              1. The Royal Robin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Ings just seems too obvious a choice. Saints' fixtures look quite bad too.

      • Iceball
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        If you had to play Doherty MCI(H) or Söy LIV(A) but no other issues, would you WC now or next week?

        1. TLF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I would never WC for 1 player.

        2. Rebeltactics
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          The Man City game will be open. Doherty might get some attacking points

      • FPL FREAK
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Moura ( Brighton (H), Norwich (A), Southampton (A))

        Or

        Grealish ( Norwich (H) Watford (A), Burnley (A))

        Whom should I get.....?? I think Tottenham might score big...
        Really damn confused...

        1. FPL FREAK
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Anyone...??

        2. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Post rest of team please.

          1. FPL FREAK
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Gazzaniga. Martin.
            Kelly. Lundstram. Rico. Fernández. Reid.
            Mane. Son. Alli. KDB. Hayden.
            Vardy. Abraham. Rashford.

            1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Grealish. One Spurs mid is enough.

        3. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Grealish

        4. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          is this move for the next 3 or you just highlighting next few fixtures.
          Grealish is nailed and cheaper but if you're backing spurs to score a few then go Moura

        5. FourLokoLeipzig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Grealish

      • Bakra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Best 2 Everton attacking prospects?

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Richarlison and ....? (not sure)

        2. Dynamic Duos
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Rich and Siggy

          1. Bakra
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Siggy looking rather poor recently

        3. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Didn't know Everton can attack

        4. Rebeltactics
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I wouldn’t bother. Lots more options than Everton

      • Ibra
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Son isn’t dropping tonight, right?

        1. Bakra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yea, won't drop

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Looking likely

        3. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He will

        4. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He could do, actually.

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

          Dropping

        6. Super Saints
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Probably will

      • Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Evening folks.

        Ryan
        TAA / Aurier / Lundstram
        Son** / KDB / Alli / Pulisic / Grealish
        Vardy / Abraham

        Button // Connolly / Pereira / Rico**

        Son out the priority:
        A) Salah
        B) Mané
        C) Sterling
        D) Other?

        Pereira on the bench correct?

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          A

      • jdp219
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        What are the plans, fellow Jimenez owners?

        Returns in 9 of past 11. City at home this week, and yet his best gameweek was against City. But then has Liverpool right after that.

        1. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Season keeper will always be a differential.
          Play vs city
          Bench vs liverpool

        2. waldo666
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Might lose him this week and shift to 2 at the front.

        3. Cech's Magic Hat
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Would have transferred him out this week until the son red. Can cope with keeping him though

      • DontPiqueTooSoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Help here guys r.e. Son replacement, my gut feeling is to keep things simple and swap to Alli. I had originally planned to move on Chilwell or Tomori.
        0.3 in the bank.

        Ryan (Button)
        Lundstram, Kelly, Tomori (Chilwell, Rico)
        KDB, Mane, Son*, Grealish (Zaha)
        Vardy, Rashford, Abraham

        A) Stick to gut & move out Son to Alli (3 good fixtures of Xmas)
        B) -4, Son + Abraham -> Salah + Greenwood (save funds for defensive upgrades later)
        C) Son to Cantwell (save funds for FT)

        Fuming after losing a 21-point advantage going in to Sunday's games and being dumped out of the cup by some dead team with 3 playing Liverpool assets. Their captaincy on Mane meant Vardy's vice captain points coming in, alongside 11 for Alonso.

        My Rashford (c) decision didn't help, nor did Son's red card, but still...
