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.

      Moura is a proven trap.

      No. Keep Puli for the Southampton game.

  4. ZeBestee

    Son red card has changed my plans and captain choice this week.

    Do 1;

    1) Mousset 》 Abraham ( No Chelsea)
    2) Son + Mousset 》》Salah + Greenwood for -4
    3) Mousset 》 Party

  5. Mo Salah No Mane

    Is it safe to think that Vardy gets rested against West Ham away in GW 20???
    Surely he plays against Liverpool.
    Rodgers said he'll definitely get rested, gives me the chance to maybe wildcard him out in GW 20 for 1 or 2 weeks.
    I don't have too much value tied up in him.

    1. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      He can rest in the cup game against Wigan.

      1. Mo Salah No Mane
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        But that's only next year. Surely he rests him for 1 of these games in the next 9 days or so.
        Iheanacho hasn't looked bad ao far.
        Guess it's pointless trying to dodge it.

        1. Do I Not Like Orange
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Maybe managed minutes, but I really can't see them resting their talisman with CL still all to play for & likely coming off a run of 3 without a win.

          1. Mo Salah No Mane
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Good point
            I hope that you are right.
            Will hold rather then.
            Fixtures are too good.
            And I guess it's safe to say all live teams have him so no real disadvantage from him getting rested or fewer minutes.

              Asked whether Vardy could play all four games, Rodgers said: 'No chance. The game is about money now. You can't say it's about the welfare of players.

              'We're playing at 8pm on the 26th then on the 28th we are playing at 5.30pm. We'll have a busy January — which is brilliant, that's what you want. You want to succeed and play lots of games — but the players aren't robots. It's not a computer game.

              'In terms of recovery, it is the second day after a game that is really tough for a player. We're kicking off at 5.30pm at West Ham. It's just nonsense, really.'

                • 3 Years

                So which game do you think he misses @monkeyfist?

  6. Evasivo
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Best replacement for Pullisic?

    A) Alli
    B) Mount
    C) Martial
    D) Maddison
    E) Mahrez

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Keep

    2. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Keep one more

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I would keep for Southampton but if you want to get rid then Alli

    4. Evasivo
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Thanks guys (I think)

      Have 2 FTs so may address Willems and roll one

    5. Evasivo
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Possibly Ryan>Ramsdale

      1. Wensink
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I moved Pope > Ramsdale probably a game week too soon but didn’t want squander a FT.

  7. Wensink
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Okay, Tammy. Your last chance saloon is against Southampton. I really mean it this time.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      You say that for a few weeks now

  8. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Just got home from Star Wars, not sure what was worse, that, Utd losing or my Son/Alli double up.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Better focus on star wars

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

      Daisy Ridley was a trap. United suck outside of big games. Spurs double up unlucky.

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Oh yeah don't get me wrong, Utd result was the least surprising.

    3. Trophé Mourinho
      2 months, 7 days ago

      at least you didnt cap son. Silver linings*

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        lol, I capped Alli, what a result.

        1. Trophé Mourinho

  9. dunas_dog

    Bring in for Son

    A Salah
    B Mané

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      A

    2. ZeBestee

      2 months, 7 days ago

      A

  10. Gizmo13
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    A) Son + Robertson ---> Salah + 4.9m defender (or under) (have double Sheffield defence + Soyuncu)
    B) Son + Tammy ---> Grealish + Kane
    C) Son + Tammy or Ings ---> Richarlison + Rashford

    In other words, who do you prefer between Kane vs Rashford, Tammy vs Ings or whether having Salah is more important (already have Mane)?

    1. Gizmo13
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Could also consider Son + Adama ---> Rich + Grealish

  11. FPL Pillars
    • 3 Years

    Alisson / Henderson

    Robertson Dawson

    Son Sigurdsson Wilson Maddison Anderson

            Sad times. U could always copy paste and carry on. Or u could go to bed 😉 Both good options (better than Son anyways)

        2. FPL Pillars

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    5 failed captain choices in a row is painful
    Who are the early armband options this week? Had Alli this week so not confident to do it again
    Rashford and Richarlison would be good shouts

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Salah, mane, vardy, KDB. I feel more confident with one of those lot. Had Son cap today....

    2. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I will keep it on Kane as I expect a reaction from him & Spurs. Most likely going back to Vardy permacap after that though.

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Likely Salah. Tempted by Pulisic after his rotation.

  14. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Is it worth bringing Ings in now you reckon? Even with coming fixtures.

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I think so. Those tough fixtures are a bit overrated.

      I'm holding out until GW 23.

  15. Shardlow

    2 months, 7 days ago

    Guiata (Button)
    TAA, Lund, Kelly, Soy (Rico)
    Mane, Alli, Grealish, KDB (Son*)

    C. Other

  16. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Ok guys, which is more important since I have no City/Liv attack and need to get rid of Son, midfield is Son Alli Richarlison Grealish

    A) KdB
    B) Salah or Mane

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      B by a distance, preferably Salah

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Transferring him out for Rich this week doesn't look great now with Son's red but can't predict those.

        1. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 7 days ago

    Best option please? Have 2fts and 0.3m.

    A Son to Grealish, 3.9m to upgrade elsewhere
    B Son, TAA to Salah and defender up to 5m
    C Something else

    Pope
    Kelly, TAA, Lundstram

    Surely Son's price should fall tonight with more than 250k transfers out already. Earlier on fplstats it was on close to -100, its currently on about -90.
    I'd love for someone to explain to me how this works? Pure favouritism. Son will be transferred out by more than a million owners over the next week and only drop by 0.2
    What a load of BS!

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      He will probably drop by 0.3

      1. Mo Salah No Mane
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        If he drops tonight yes then maybe. Deadline is Thursday afternoon and looks like alot of the transfers out have been made already. 3rd drop might fall after the deadline.

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

      I guess a pool guy. Salah in some form.

  22. The Royal Robin

    A) Maddison > Grealish
    B) Maddison > Pogba

      If anything, then D. Why would you sell Maddison?

      1. The Royal Robin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Playing very deep. Stock is down. Better options, etc.

    2. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I wouldn’t get rid of Maddison.

  23. QUEN
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    If I bought son for 9.5 can sell for 9.8 and he is 10.1 if he falls I lose 0.1 right?

    1. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      correct

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Yes

    Wildcard - Big questions.

    A. Abraham + 3.9

    Remaining places are:
    Ramsdale - McGovern

  26. Reedy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Anyone thinking of keeping Son?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Nope

    2. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 7 days ago

      not worth benching for 3gw's surely?

      1. Reedy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Probably not no. But it's only 11 days and he'll be back. With a good bench and a lot of money tied up in him I'm wondering if there's a case for it

        1. FPL Pillars
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          That cash will drain out anyway mate a lot of lolly tied up too

          1. Reedy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            I think he'll drop by 0.3 maybe, that still means spending more if I want him back though

            1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              I’m guessing he’ll drop more like 0.6 or so. 0.3 ahead of next GW, 0.2 the following and 0.1 the third.

              1. Reedy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                It's a max of 0.3m per week though, and he'll be back half way into the second week

                1. Brosstan
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 7 days ago

                  Its max 0.3 per gameweek, not per actual week.

                  1. Reedy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 7 days ago

                    Oh! I had it the other way around. Either way, he's got less time to drop in the shorter time frame.

                    1. Reedy
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 7 days ago

                      And I think you're right, I misremembered that

        2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          That profit will be wiped out by the time he’s back

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        This

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Way too much money to keep on the bench for 3 gws, already sold

      1. Jafoole_88
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Who did you sell for?

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Salah

          1. Brosstan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Was lucky to have some extra money itb for the occasion

      2. Reedy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Hmm. The money on the bench thing doesn't bother me just so long as I can field a decent XI. But that might be harder over christmas one sub down

    4. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Nah.

    5. Reedy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Cheers everyone! I'll probably sell too, just thought it was worth asking the question.

    Son Mount to Richarlison Siggy
    Smart or dumbass?

  29. Tempestic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Is Pogba an unnecessarily stupid gamble or a good differential to replace Son? Have all the other suspects already.

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Yeah, rather unnecessary. It's not like Man U are setting the world alight either

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Just really struggling to find a good replacement. Annoying.
