Aguero hits hat-trick as City assets issue a timely reminder of FPL worth

Aston Villa 1-6 Manchester City


  • Goals: Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) | Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) x2, Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) x3, Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m)
  • Assists: Trezeguet (£5.2m) | Aguero, Jesus, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) x2, David Silva (£7.4m), Mahrez
  • Bonus: Aguero x3, Mahrez x2, Silva x1

With many Fantasy managers trying to redistribute funds in order to crowbar three premium Liverpool assets into their squads, Manchester City’s similarly priced players might be among the makeweights.

Sunday’s demolition of Aston Villa was a reminder of what Pep Guardiola’s side are capable of when on-song, however.

Even the Reds, unbeaten all season and 14 points clear at the top of the Premier League, don’t come close to matching City’s attacking stats.

While they have admittedly played a game more, City have scored 12 more goals than the runaway leaders and attempted over 100 more shots.

Efforts on target, shots in the box, big chances: you name it, Guardiola’s troops boss it.

They were rampant at Villa Park on Sunday, with Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) at his devastating best and registering his highest single Gameweek score since August 2018 – becoming the record overseas goalscorer in the Premier League in the process.

Asked about the Argentinean striker after full-time, Guardiola said:

He was a legend already and that legendary status became bigger tonight. I think he is one of the most incredible players I have seen in this league.

The most important thing is that he is an incredible person – you cannot score this many goals or break so many records if you are not somebody is happy to be with his team-mates.

He has to always be fit to be at his best and he sometimes needs a bit of time after he has been injured or in pre-season, but he loves to play football and he is a guy who when he is in the final third always has a goal in his mind.

Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) also emerged with double-digit hauls, while Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) banked two assists to became the first player to hit the 150-point mark in Fantasy Premier League in 2019/20.

Two quickfire goals from Mahrez set City on their way, with the Algerian squeezing a shot past Orjan Nyland (£4.3m) at his near post and then capitalising on debutant Danny Drinkwater‘s (£4.4m) error to double the visitors’ lead.

De Bruyne then assisted goals for Aguero and Jesus – the first a superb strike by the Argentina international and the second owing much to De Bruyne’s excellent run and cross – as City went into half-time 4-0 up.

Aguero completed his hat-trick after the interval, peeling off the Villa defence to fire low past Nyland and then being the beneficiary of another individual error from Kortney Hause (£4.4m) to fire in his third with ten minutes to go.

There could have been other goals, too.

Jesus was particularly wasteful, firing over when well-positioned in the first half, seeing a shot cleared off the line by Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) after the break and then spurning two efforts on 77 minutes, the first saved by Nyland and the second crashed wide from eight yards.

Aguero fired over the bar and David Silva (£7.4m) sent a free-kick narrowly off-target in the first half, too, as Villa were torn apart.

Owners of De Bruyne may even have felt a little miffed at emerging with ‘only’ nine points, with the Belgian brought off by Guardiola for a well-earned breather with the game well and truly won by the 60-minute mark.

Those who still own the benched and unused Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) had it worse, though: the only two league matches that the England international has not played a part in this season were the ones in which City have scored the most goals (the other being the 8-0 thrashing of Watford).

Therein lies one of the problems with City assets: the unpredictability of starts.

As anyone who checks in with our line-up predictions every week knows, second-guessing Guardiola is a nigh-on impossible task.

Sterling previously hadn’t been benched in two successive league matches in 2019/20 or 2018/19, while Jesus and Aguero hadn’t been paired in tandem in the Premier League in 16 months.

Efforts to crack the Pep code earlier this season had mixed results at best, while the City manager’s recent experiments with a striker-less system in the EFL Cup and a 3-4-3 over Christmas makes anticipating team selections all the harder. 

Who knows who Guardiola will send out in Gameweek 23?

De Bruyne is, at least, a relatively safe bet: this was his 14th consecutive Premier League start and he has only been benched once (he also missed the home defeat to Wolves through injury) all season.

Mahrez, meanwhile, has quietly racked up five starts in a row. Perhaps at his reduced price, we can stomach the odd benching, but the £11.8m we have to fork out for Aguero and especially Sterling is a lot considering the week-to-week uncertainty.

Chasing the fixtures and regularly switching the FPL big hitters (in the process being able to target matches in which starts appear most likely) is another strategy, of course, and one that served Pro Pundit Lateriser12 well this week when he drafted in Aguero especially with Villa in mind.

Which brings us to our next caveat: City won’t play Dean Smith’s side every week.

Aston Villa are either bottom or second-bottom for goals, shots in the box, big chances and attempts on goal conceded this season and this was one of City’s easiest tests of 2019/20.

Guardiola’s side now sit bottom of our Season Ticker over the next ten Gameweeks, with Liverpool right at the top.

Next up for the Sky Blues is a Crystal Palace side that hasn’t conceded more than one goal in a game since November, followed by a trip to Bramall Lane, where Sheffield United have kept five clean sheets in 11 matches.

If there’s one team that can crack a tightly knit defence, though, it’s City.

Guardiola’s troops have already put a combined four goals past those two teams in the reverse fixtures and have scored at least two goals in 19 of their 22 Premier League games this season.

It should also be noted that Villa, although generally porous for much of the season, had restricted a full-strength Leicester City to a 1-1 draw at the King Power Stadium just last week, so had shown slight improvement at the back.

Reflecting on City’s overall display, Guardiola said:

It was good. From the beginning we were always in control. We made a lot of transitions and short passes and it was a great result and good performance.

We played well against United but they played better in the second half – today it was for the full 90 minutes.

I think we have always been there this season, even when we have lost games like at Norwich, we created lots of chances – but sometimes maybe we lost our incredible focus occasionally and after back to back titles, it is difficult with the reality of everything.

This was a punishing defeat for Villa and a reminder of their defensive limitations from a Fantasy perspective.

All four of their clean sheets in 2019/20 have come in home games against bottom-half teams and they only have one such fixture (against a resurgent Watford) remaining between now and May.

Their attacking assets, in particular Jack Grealish (£6.5m), are more enticing options, although the striker-less Villans had little joy against the Citizens on Sunday.

Grealish’s frustration boiled over on a few occasions and it was no surprise that he was booked for dissent late on, with his owners’ miserable afternoon completed when Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m), rather than the Villa talisman, stepped up to take the hosts’ 90th-minute penalty after a foul on Trezeguet (£5.2m).

With Wesley (£5.6m) out for the season, it may well be El Ghazi on duty from the spot between now and Gameweek 38.

After the game, Smith was right to point out that many of the same players (and a similar shape) were used against Burnley and Leicester to better effect:

We were certainly contributors to our own downfall today. We made mistakes for goals and I think the third goal summed up our performance.

They made 20 passes without any physical contact and Sergio Aguero puts it in the top corner from 20 yards out with no one within three of four yards of him.

As good a team as Manchester City are, if you’re making any physical contact on them then you’re going to get punished.

We know that we’ve contributed to the scoreline today, which doesn’t help. A lot of those players are the same players who did so well against Burnley and Leicester City.

We’ll learn from it and move forward. We were very poor against Watford, got beat 3-0, we learned from it and went and put in a really good performance against Burnley.

The loan signing of Pepe Reina should bolster their goalkeeping options, at least, and is expected to be confirmed on Monday.

Aston Villa XI (5-3-1-1): Nyland; Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Hause, Taylor; Hourihane (Trezeguet 71′), Drinkwater (Lansbury 79′), Douglas Luiz (Nakamba 65′); Grealish; El Ghazi.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Fernandinho (Otamendi 63′), Mendy; De Bruyne (Foden 63′), Rodri (Gundogan 71′), D Silva; Mahrez, Aguero, Jesus.

          It’s Agueros first double digit haul since GW 4. I’d wait and see whether he can sustain it and whether he’ll get rotated.

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years

      Don't sell Vardy

      1. Nespinha

        why?

        1. Dynamic Duos

          Fixtures to good for him and he won't stop scoring

  5. Dynamic Duos

    2 lots of transfers costing -4

    Gwk23 Rashford and Martial to Ings and Son free
    Gwk24 Jiminez and KDB to DCL/Maupay and Mane(got TAA and Salah)

    Thoughts all?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Risky - despite this week’s fixture (which with counter attacks they could even score in), it’s tricky for me to be selling Martial/Rashford before the burnley match the next week. I also wouldn’t be selling KDB tbh even to get Mane in.

      Like you though I’m thinking time up for Jimenez, and time to finally get Ings. Son is an interesting one

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah need a differential in Son, don't Utd's except for the Burnley one over the next 5/6 and City fixtures are worrying to Mane will out score him by alot i think

    2. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Rashford to Ings
      Jimenez to Maupay

      Next week: Martial to Mane?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        I wouldn’t lose Rash. Loves the big games.

    A. Son, Rash ----- Salah, Ings
    B. Abraham, Rico --- Ings, Gomez
    C. Abraham, Rico, Traore --- Ings, Vvd, Hayden -4

    Pope, Martin

      Definitely A.

  7. Tinmen

    Thoughts on Sterling as a one week captaincy punt this week folks?

    1. Dynamic Duos

      Could be gold

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Out of form. I wouldn’t

        That's why Pep dropped him.

    Who would you play?

    A) McCarthy (WOL)
    B) Martin (EVE)

    1. Dynamic Duos

      A

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      A. Richarlison is Gona destroy Martin and that backline 🙂

    3. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      A for me

  9. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Sat here with 1FT 1.5 ITB. Thinking Jimenez to Ings, perhaps? Would lose Rashford but fixtures aren’t awful and good form...

    Is Gomez a decent enough option for 3rd liverpool in that case (in for Rico)? Or too low ceiling?

    McCarthy Martin
    TAA Soyuncu Lundstram Rico Kelly
    Mane KDB Maddison Martial Hayden
    Vardy Rashford Jimenez

    Basically, can’t afford Robbo w/o selling Rashford or both Jimenez/Martial, and cant afford Salah without selling all 3 aforementioned!

    1. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Jimi to Ings and Soy to Robbo

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        No can do, 0.1 out.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 23 days ago

      How happy would you be to have Gomez going forward from 24? Just for that week it looks fine but it could cost you in medium term.

      Can you reach Robbo from Maddison Jim? I’d want to keep Martial

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        I can, though that’d be for a hit.

        Against losing Rashford too I take it? He funds Rico to Robbo easily

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 23 days ago

          I sold Rashford 🙂

          But I’ve been looking at the consistency of the Rashford Martial returns. Lower ceiling but they almost exactly match Mo Mane so far in appearances and regularity of blanks. Doesn’t feel like a sell

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            Yeah, tricky one. I’m stuck on whether to keep both or sell one to find that third Liverpool player

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Even if you’re not a fan of hits you’d have to be ridiculously unlucky for Robbo over Gomez not to pay off if you’re committing to double defence as a midterm call anyway

          1. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 23 days ago

            See below - Maddison/Martial out for Grealish or a similar mid for a hit funds Robbo Ings for Rico Jim.

            Can even get DSilva if I sell Martial Jim Soyuncu!

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Dilva I like a lot

              Great differential and ever so consistent

  10. davies
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Is it worth switching from double Liverpool attack > double defence just to accomodate Aguero?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Probably not if you have Salah Mane already

    3. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      If you are chasing, definatley a "yes" from me. I'm going to do it at the likelihood of price changes.

      ....these are the thoughts I'm having today but I don't think it is tbh. Had Trent + Robbo for a lot of the season and it hurt me quiet a but!

    Sterling expected back on next week?

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      For cameo, yes.

  12. The Greenback Boogie
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Current team :

    Ryan
    TAA - Soy - Sidibe
    Salah - KDB - Alli - Grealish
    Vardy - Deulofeu - Rashford

    Button - Lund - Rico - Dendo

    Sitting on OR of 24k but want to change things around to try and get to that top 10k. Woulc you WC the above team to this :

    Ryan
    TAA - Lund - Soy
    Salah - Sarr - KDB - Moura (Looks okay to start with Kane out)
    Aguero - Firmino - Ings

    McCarthy - Holgate - Dendo - Brandon Williams

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No, just get a third Pool player for the double and you're golden.

  13. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    1FT, 0.6itb.

    Aurier >> Holgate now or next GW?
    It will help fund Maupay >> Ings after Villa. If I do it next GW who would you play from Aurier or Lunds?

    McCarthy
    TAA • Soy• Aurier
    KDB • Salah • Mané • Richarlison • Grealish
    Vardy • Maupay
    (McGov. Lunds. Rico. Greenwood)

  14. Bookkeeper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    We need a reliable City source, didn't go for Aguero or Mahrez in GW22 with risk of being benched. Is the latter still a bench risk or sure starter now?

    1. MC Hammer
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      No one is a sure starter but Mahrez will play as much as anyone else now I think, expect the odd benching and take it on chin, he will make up for it

      1. Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Mahrez has delivered good returns in the past, only to be benched the next game and used sparingly. I noticed he tracked back for defensive duties quite a lot yesterday, maybe the reason he is seeing more minutes now?

        1. baps sniffer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Could be. We shouldn't focus only on fpl pts, but I wouldn't get him in now just to see it's his time to be rested. This was also easy fixture, that perhaps helped him.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      It’s still Pep. Only thing that is certain is that nothing is certain.

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

      In great form but competing with Sterling and B.Silva

  15. eazy
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    No idea where to go with this lot :/ Been thinking about WC a lot but not sure whether to pull the trigger. Also some of the players have very nice fixtures so ideal would be to wait another week but then couldn't TC with a Liverpool player. Any help is appreciated!
    Foster
    Kelly Soy Lund (Reid, Taylor)
    Mane KDB Alli Maddo Cantwell
    Vardy Jimenez Abraham

    1. eazy
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Main transfer targets for the long-term probably need to be TAA and Ings. Then I would also like to have another Liverpool player for the doubles. Fixtures also turning pretty bad for Jimenez and Abraham in the GW24

    2. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

  16. Warby84
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Any Brighton fans view on Maupay, has Villa Bournemouth next up, tempted to hold for Villa and move on to Deeney for 24 who also play Villa away that GW...

  17. True Deadzoner
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Martial or Richarlison?

  18. cnewman7
    • 5 Years

    Rather:
    A) Rashford Rico to Ings Robbo (0.9 ITB)
    B) Jimenez Rico to Ings Gomez (1.0 ITB)
    C) Jimenez Soyuncu to Ings VVD (0.5 ITB)
    D) Jimenez Rico Madd/Martial to Ings Robbo 6.6mid (-4pts)

        Thinking the same most likely, though C did tempt when I saw I could get Grealish in

    Ryan
    TAA Lundstram Rico (Kelly Taylor)
    Salah Mane KDB Traore (Dendoncker)
    Vardy Ings Maupay

    What would you do here with £2.4 and 1FT:

    A. Save
    B. Upgrade Kelly/Rico
    C. Upgrade Traore (Maddison)
    D. Split money between defence and midfield (Fanderson + Sidibe)
    D. Vardy > Aguero

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rico/Kelly to VVD/Gomez what I’m likely considering

    Best defender upto 4.8 to replace Rico with?

    1. True Deadzoner
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Must be Holgate

    Is Brandon WIlliams a safe player to have now? LB seems to be his to lose now.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      As long as he plays well it is but wouldn’t be surprised with some rotation still

  23. Bookkeeper
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 23 days ago

    Dilva (7.4m) or Maddison (7.7m) ?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      If choosing one now I’d be inclined to punt on David Silva

    2. fgdu
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 23 days ago

      go for dilva, he often assist a lot of the aguero goals

      1. fgdu
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        having said that im pretty sure mahrez is the pick

      2. Bookkeeper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        at 7.4m he will match Maddison, will regularly assist and pick up a goal every few games. Had he not been injured, he would have bettered Maddys points total.

      Dilva

      Looking to make the switch next week. City are full of goals - were clear top scorers even before this week. He’ll get a decent slice of the pie

    Those Brighton fixtures look fantastic!

      They do don’t they?

      I’m struggling to see where to fit an attacker into this frontline:

      Mane KDB Maddison Martial (Hayden)
      Vardy Rashford Jimenez/Ings

      Though, could do Soyuncu to Dunk

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 23 days ago

        Yeah, I actually dumped Soy too. Dunk could be a good move.

        I decided to get Dunk since I needed to upgrade my defense and Maupay hasn't been too convincing. Almost similar points total now, but Dunk is cheaper and has higher ppm.

    Would you do Traore to Snodgrass/Noble for the double?
    If so which one?

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 23 days ago

      Not keen on WH tbh. Their DGW fixtures aren't exactly inspiring.

  26. CONNERS

    Anyone else considering Fleck as a cheap midfield option for Sheff U's nice run of fixtures in a couple of weeks time?

    If You have Dunk Would Get Whom instead of Ramsdale
    A- McCarthy
    B- Ryan

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      a

  28. Danno - Emre Canada

    Play Traore or Soy?

    I see no1 in the world benched Martial at home to Norwich, which I could afford such luxuries, maybe that's why he is no1

      Thoughts jiminez & Zaha > Firmino & Snodgrass in prep for double GW

      Would you agree with this move or would you seek to strengthen the defence??

      Maddison OUT
      Doucoure IN (free)

      Ryan
      TAA Lundstram Soyuncu
      KDB Salah Maddison* Mane
      Vardy DCL Ings

      Button Traore Rico Kelly

      Current Bank: 0.4m
      Bank after transfer: 2.2m

        Doucoure for Traore also an option
