Why I’m looking at Man City amid Double Gameweek 24 planning

With the Double Gameweek for Liverpool and West Ham in Gameweek 24, much of the transfer activity and attention has been focused on Liverpool assets but two more teams certainly warrant discussion – Southampton and Manchester City.

I will start by talking about the Saints first. No team has racked up more points (13) over the last five Gameweeks with four wins and a draw (Liverpool played only four matches). They are joint-top of the form table along with Watford, scoring nine goals and conceding just three.

The 2-1 victory against Leicester last Gameweek epitomised their resurgence after a 9-0 hammering in the reverse fixture. They restricted the most prolific striker in the league to zero shots in the box (SiB), an impressive feat. This warranted a deeper look into their defensive and offensive numbers over the last five Gameweeks – which was also the focus of a recent Members Article.

Furthermore, only Manchester City (15), Watford (11), Manchester United (10) have scored more goals than the Saints’ nine over the aforementioned period. As the table shows, they are ranked fifth for SiB (43) which is again impressive considering the opposition they have faced. They are also fourth for big chances (13), trailing only Liverpool, Man. Utd (both 14) and Manchester City (17).

Screenshot from the FFScout Members Area: Gameweeks 18 to 22

The Saints are second only to Liverpool in terms of fixtures all the way up to Gameweek 30. I have chosen that as the cutoff point as Gameweek 31 is likely to be the big blank Gameweek due to FA Cup fixtures and I will likely use my Free Hit chip then and Wildcard in Gameweek 32.

I’ve not owned Danny Ings (£6.8m) at any point this season due to his past injury record, but after his recent performance against Leicester, I think he’s almost ‘essential’, if I’m allowed to use that word. No forward has scored more goals (five), taken more SiB (19) or landed more shots on target (SoT) (11) than the Englishman over the last five Gameweeks.

Manchester City’s attacking numbers need no elaboration so I will instead talk about the form midfielder in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) over the last five Gameweeks – Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m).

No midfielder has racked up more FPL points (37) over this period and the Algerian is also top for shots (20), SiB (15) and SoT (seven). Only Anthony Martial (£7.9m) (four) has scored more goals than his three.

As with any Manchester City asset, rotation is always a concern but he has now started each of the last five league matches and the latest comments from Pep Guardiola are encouraging:

“You see his legs it is impossible to be injured because he has no muscles. The final third he has something special, always I have the feeling he can score a goal.” – Pep Guardiola

After a dive into these numbers, I have made three transfers for my team for a -4. Alex McCarthy (£4.3m), Mahrez and Ings have all come in.

Nick Pope (£4.6m), Martial and Neal Maupay (£5.9m) have made way. I am aware that Maupay has a great fixture run but Ings passes both the eye and stats test with flying colours so I decided to make the move.

The captaincy is currently on De Bruyne but given his low ownership (6.6%), a punt on Mahrez appeals. Diego Rico (£4.4m) is next on the chopping block after losing his spot in the Bournemouth starting line-up with Brandon Williams (£4.0m) likely to come in the week after.

Thanks for reading and good luck in Gameweek 23.

      Williams, Holgate good options.

        Both 4mil defenders, played their role quite nicely IMO...

        Ha, my dilemma, might go A based on opposition

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Thanks- yes bit of dilemma- I brought Aguero in for 2 weeks so might just go with him before he goes for Ings so can afford Mané or Robertson /VVD

      4. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        B if you think he'll start.

        1. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I think being home game he will with Sterling and Bernardo coming back in- but accept it is a calculated risk!

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

      Which scores more next two GW:

      A) Snodgrass (EVE, lei, LIV)
      B) Cantwell (BOU, tot)

      1. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        B because it has Bournemouth in it

      2. JT11fc
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        B

      3. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        B probably because Cantwell can be benched for a better player in 24.

    7. paulfantham
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Got the exact money for this, watcha reckon:
      Tammy + Pope > Ings + Alison

      Would leave me with a front two of Vardy / Ings and a Pool triple up of Salah / Mané / Alison

      1. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Hmm. Cant decide is allison is a wasted pool spot or a safe dgw pick.

        Not sure I'd want him all season over robbo taa or vvd though.

      2. JT11fc
        • 1 Year

        If your happy to cover your eyes every time trent crosses then sure

      3. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Allison is a waste of Pool Spot. Taa Robbo so interesting to own

    8. EL tridente
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Maddison to Richarlison?

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        oh go on then

      2. how now brown cow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Depends if you think leicester bubble has burst.

        1. El Presidente
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Not sure it has... but maybe a bit of downsizing for the ones owning def+mid+Vardy maybe wise....

            1. EL tridente
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Exactly my thought.. Have 3 Leicester players now and Maddison will be the easiest to transfer out

      3. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Maupay plays Villa and Bournemouth next.

        Is Rashford > Maupay to fund Maddison > Mane in 24 a good idea?

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Can work

          I like it

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes from me

        4. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Reckon I'd keep rashford if I had him, but if you are set on mane then for next 2 maupay looks ok.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I know that’s the dilemma. Rashford with double Pool defence or Double Liverpool attack without.

            1. how now brown cow
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              The potential upside of having mane is probably higher than that of keeping rashford.

              1. The 12th Man
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 16 days ago

                It’s all those good fixtures after the double for Liverpool too.

                I’m going to WC around 28.

        5. JT11fc
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Im doing Maupay to Rash after Villa, but to fund Mane then definitely

        6. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Maupay is a short term punt. More than likely you'll be looking to upgrade him in a few weeks. I have him but I'm already planning exit routes.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Yeh his form isn’t great is it?
            I like his fixtures more than Calvert Lewin and can’t go Deeney as I have Sarr already.

            1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Yeah I've owned since 3 gameweeks and only got an assist so I'm hoping he can improve with fixtures. But if he fails next 2 (AVL, Bou) I'll be looking to sell him.

      4. Rock n Grohl

        Captain dilemma this week here?
        KDB
        Mahrez
        Vardy
        Richarlison

        Heavily chasing so leaning towards Mahrez or Richarlison?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Go Rich - Mahrez, despite form, is a big risk this GW with B.Silva and Sterling available

      5. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Template defence not looking so strong as it did past few weeks ago. Think it's time for Soyuncu, Rico, Kelly etc to go.

        Some fresh bargain & budget options emerging from Watford, Soton & maybe Arsenal. Williams could also be great value at 4.0m if he can get starts regularly.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I don't want to disrupt the balance of the team though. Those guys are super cheap.

          Maybe Rico > Holgate/Stevens but that's it really.

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Long term fixtures for Leicester still look good so might be worth keeping Soy on the bench till Ndidi is back.
            Selling Rico could be a better option to cover Soyuncu till then.

        2. zøphar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I'm confident Williams is first choice now, he's a super talent. Like I mentioned, Rico to williams next week is a great move

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I'm very excited about him. They way he attacks and United defensive stats have been decent all season.
            There could be some double digit scores for him if United can start keeping clean sheets.

          2. baps sniffer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Rico to Williams next week is my planned transfer. This week is Kelly to Dunk. Brighton has nice fixtures before wc time.

        3. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          I have all 3 of those wasters

          1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            You should start planning to drop atleast one of them.
            Williams and Soton def look particularly interesting.

        4. El Presidente
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I dont know.... Rico maybe yes, but the other 2.... Kelly is still going to play a lot and Palace is really tight at the back and I would agree to let go of Pereira, Evans or Chilly but Soy if you got him at 4.5/4.6 like the vast majority of us non-casuals?.... 🙂

            1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              Yup Soy could be worth keeping specially for those who got him around 4.5-4.7
              But I think the other options look better than Rico/Kelly atm.

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 16 days ago

                Assuming you have the template

                TAA, Soy, Lund, Rico, Kelly

                Why not do like Rico > SHU defense in GW 25? SHU have the best fixtures. A proven defense. And you double up on them as a calculated risk for a few weeks running with TAA, Lund, Egan,

                1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  I've got Dunk over Kelly.
                  And I've also got Henderson. But tbh I wouldn't might taking a punt on triple SHU def from GW25 onwards.

                  Soyuncu to Kola is tempting if Arsenal can keep up their defensive form. And I also quite like Williams if he is nailed.

                  1. baps sniffer
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Does Williams even has to be nailed for his price? As long as he either starts or stays on the bench, it is fine for me.

                    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 16 days ago

                      He needs to start regularly otherwise I wouldn't want to waste a transfer to get him in. If he starts against Pool and puts in a good performance then he is pretty much nailed.

                  2. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Hmm with Henderson it's a bit less appealing I guess.

                    Yeah Williams is also a nice option.

          • The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I’m looking at Maitland-Niles,Williams,Stephens and Holgate to replace those in the coming weeks.

          • Holmes
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I'm looking at SHU defender and Kolasinac, might upgrade 4/5th defender or just drop Soyuncu and Periera

            1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 16 days ago

              I'm also considering Soyuncu to Kola or Stevens (triple Shu def) or Rico to Williams.

        5. Barnes Owl

          2 months, 16 days ago

          In two minds:

          A - Rashford -> Firmino

          B - Rashford -> DCL & Martial -> Salah -4

          Current team:

          Hend/Button
          TAA/Soy/Lund/Williams/Kelly
          Mane/Martial/Maddison/KDB/Dend
          Rash/Vardy/Maupay

          Cheers

          1. sovietrockettes
            • 1 Year

            B, Salah is essential IMO

            1. El Presidente
                2 months, 16 days ago

                I dont know.... A hit + losing Rash & Martial with Burnley at home..... I mean it really could go either way - fantastic move or absolutely terrible one. Personally I would keep at least one ManU asset.

              Yeah I'd probably go with that as well in that scenario.

              Yeah B. I am close to benching Rashford over Cantwell (!) but being on pens sways it...

            4. El Presidente
                2 months, 16 days ago

                Tough one. I have Martial/Madds/Cantwell for 2 spots.

              1 FT, 1.1 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

              Ryan
              TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
              Salah, Mane, KDB, Cantwell
              Vardy, Ings, Rashford

              (Woodman, Traore, Kelly, Simpson)

              A) Traore -> Sarr (bench Cantwell)
              B) Traore -> Grealish (start Cantwell)
              C) Something Else
              D) Save FT

              Currently on A.

              Cheers!

              Who wud you prioritize getting for next 5-7 GWs?

              A) Son
              B) Rashford

              1. Miguel Sanchez

                B

                2 months, 16 days ago

                Probably B, although fancy Son to do well. I think most will be choosing between either Son or Rashford, Rashford the safer bet for now...

                The better player, from the better team, that's on pens and free kicks. Easy decision

              4. El Presidente
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Tight call, maybe not the best fixtures for ManU for that period...

                Hi all, had a bad one last week

                Ramsdale
                TAA. Soyuncu. Lundstram (Aurier, Kelly)
                Salah. KDB. Maddison. Martial. Traore
                Vardy. Ings (Greenwood)

                A) Aurier, Soyuncu, Martial > Cathcart, Williams, Mane (-4)
                B) Aurier, Ramsdale > Robbo, Ryan
                C) something else?

                1. GloryManUnited
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Maddison/Martial>>Cantwell or CHO/Mane maybe?

                  1. fridge
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Actually for a -4 I could do Maddison, Martial, Aurier > Mane, Grealish, Holgate...

                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  A

              6. GloryManUnited
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 16 days ago

                How do we feel about Tanganga from Spurs?

                Glowing reviews from MOU and he really did play a very solid game against Sadio passing the eye test. They both as 4th/5th defenders seem like great value if they both can nail down a spot.
                Enables funds elsewhere as well.

                Thoughts?

                1. Miguel Sanchez
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Prefer Williams at Man U if looking for a 4.0 def. Should play the easier Home games which is exactly what you'd want.

                2. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Naw. He's not gonna play enough. Williams far better anyway at bargain basement price.

                  1. GloryManUnited
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Just a thought. Williams is already my 5th defender but the thought of Robbo/TAA/LaPorte/Tanganga/Williams sounds pretty enticing.

                    1. Camzy
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 16 days ago

                      No thanks. Way too much in defense.

                      I'd go like TAA, Lundstram, Soy, Williams, Stephens first probably.

                      1. GloryManUnited
                        • 1 Year
                        2 months, 16 days ago

                        Soy train has sailed for me. Leicester flare has worn off and he's returned once in his last 5. Him and Madd are at last chance saloon for me.

                3. HashAttack
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Williams looks like he either play or he doesn't - Tanga could be coming on as a sub and getting you 1 pointers

                  1. GloryManUnited
                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Highly unlikely he'd be subbing late as that's rare for defenders. Even if he did, he would be my 5th defender at that point.

                    Not quite sure about the Williams part--every player either plays or doesn't?

                    1. HashAttack
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 16 days ago

                      I meant that Williams seems to start and play matches or not come on at all

              7. DAZZ
                • 5 Years
                2 months, 16 days ago

                If im chasing someone who has TAA Robbo and Mane and i have TAA Salah, would you cover with Robbo, or go for a differential in Firmino? It’s essentially Firmino vs Robertson. Tbh i can see Liverpool conceded in one game. Cannot afford Mane

                1. Miguel Sanchez
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Go Firmino if that is your hunch

                2. GloryManUnited
                  • 1 Year
                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Do it

                Confirmed that Gazzaniga and Son both start tonight.

                Don't know if anyone cares about Ponferradina's game against Malaga but I'm leaving this here anyway.

                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    LOL, quite an important one btw!! Malaga is struggling to stay up on LaLiga2 and club is in complete shambles after 10 years of UAE ownership....

                      Yeah it's a shame. They're my Spanish team and always look out for them.

                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  Which should be prioritized in shipping out, Rico or Kelly? In other words, which is less likely to see game time?

                  1. Camzy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Rico. Bournemouth are a worse team and he got dropped.

                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 16 days ago

                      Exactly

                  2FT, nothing pressing:
                  Hendo -> Ryan?
                  Why? Fixtures over next few weeks

                  1. Holmes
                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    Prefer Henderson's fixtures and defense

                    1. Mr. Wizard
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 16 days ago

                      Next week it’s Ars then City... whilst Brighton have Villa Bournemouth?

                      1. Mr. Wizard
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 16 days ago

                        Even for next few weeks with nothing pressing, can always bring back Hendo?

                        1. Holmes
                          • 6 Years
                          2 months, 16 days ago

                          If you want to spend 2FTs on gk position, then its fine.

                      2. Holmes
                        • 6 Years
                        2 months, 16 days ago

                        And after that?

                        Doubt Ryan will keep any CS in any game, string of 2-3pts just like last 8-10 games

                    • 4 Years

                    Indeed - 7 weeks of pretty good fixtures

                    You're kidding right? Look at SHU fixtures from GW 25 onwards! Waste of a transfer. Prepare for the double GW. If you don't have triple Pool, figure out how you will. If you have them already setup your team for the longer term. There is a lot to do now. No one I've seen has a WC perfect team with 2 FTs.

                      Thanks for the feedback. So here is my team, I’m currently ranked 546 overall: what would you suggest then? Thanks.

                          Newcastle away to Everton? Don’t fancy that

                            Williams. The 4.0m MUN defender setting up for next week's BUR.

                              And then next week you can do Traore > Grealish or Tammy > Rashford.

                                Love all these moves. Great advice.

                                Also the fact you're 546 in the world and don't know who Williams is makes me want to puke.

                                Already plotting Tammy > Rash and did Grealish > Traore to make those funds

                      Also, already have Lundstram cover, so I still think Ryan could be a decent option?

                  Hey everyone, keep debating a wildcard (to stop me from being priced out next week). Can I get some honest thoughts/opinions please?

                  McCarthy*, Button
                  Trent, Robbo*, Digne, Lund, Williams*
                  Mane, KDB, Richar*, Cantwell, Dendo*
                  Vardy, Rash, Ings*

                  I have the EXACT funds for this team.
                  I was tempted to switch Cantwell to Douglas Luiz and upgrade Button to Martin

                  * = players in
                  Players out: Henderson, Soy, Kelly, Grealish, Maddison, DCL

                    Nice team, love the new defence. Well done!

                    I'm not sure getting those players on WC is really worth it. How is current team looking?

                      It's laid out right in front of you

                        Didnt noticed players out section, WC not worth it. Current team looks better than WC team

                    Henderson and DCL out are downgrades. Gettinh Richa instead of him isn't worth it. For short term perhaps, but you will regret it later imho.

                    Robbo, Rich, Ings are defo worth bringing in

                    Love this! There is only one option from here on out.

                    Tried telling everyone over and over leading up this past GW. I think I posted on here 5 times about an upcoming hatty!

                  It'll be fine going without kdb for a few weeks don't care what people say shef away spurs away west ham home Leicester away blank mane and salah easily outscore him over this period

                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    If you got him at 9.5, that's quite some TV hit you're taking

                  2. GloryManUnited

                    So both mane and salah don't outscore him can always get back guys I got at 10.2

                    I am trying to convince myself this, but i only bought him a couple of weeks ago so don't have much value to lose...

                  2 months, 16 days ago

                  thinking of the following, over 2 GW:

                  A) Abraham, Alli, Soyboy -> Ings, Sarr, Robertson (double LIV def with TAA)
                  B) Abraham, Alli, Soyboy -> Ings, Grealish, Robertson
                  C) Abraham, Alli, Jiminez -> Ings, Mane, Greenwood (mane salah double up)

                  C leaves me with more to clean up / value in Jimmy lost, but more risk/reward perhaps.

                    A for me. Good move getting those 3 underperformers out of there

                    1. Wirbelwind
                      • 2 Years

                      thanks. Kind of considering

                      Abraham, Alli, Kelly -> Ings, Sarr, Robertson

                      too. So I don't always have to play one of kelly/Rico

                    My exact moves as well. Did the first this week and will do the second next

                  Is Robbo really worth the .6 Million more than VDV? Only 6 points separates them

                  Zaha > ...... 7.3
                  Tammy > Ings
                  3 transfers for a 4pt hit - fill in the blank

                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 16 days ago

                    A and C if you can although Tammy is ticking along again

                      Should have worded that much better - essentially asking for opinions on best mid for 7.3m or less, intend to do all 3 of the above
