A Fantasy manager’s guide to the first-ever winter break

The first Premier League winter break is already in full swing but how does it affect the Fantasy landscape?

On the face of it, not a great deal.

There are no blanks or doubles to factor in and we’ll still have a full complement of ten top-flight fixtures to consider ahead of Saturday morning’s Fantasy Premier League deadline.

The big difference, of course, is that the games are spread out over ten days.

Only eight teams are in action this weekend, with the remaining dozen playing between February 14-17.

The full fixture list is as follows:


Press Conferences

As many of you will be aware, we’ll only hear from eight Premier League managers ahead of the Gameweek 26 deadline.

Graham Potter and Nigel Pearson held their pre-match press conferences on Thursday, while Carlo Ancelotti, Roy Hodgson, Chris Wilder, Eddie Howe, Pep Guardiola and David Moyes will all face the media on Friday.

We’ll hopefully soon be up to speed on the injury news from those eight clubs, although anyone acquainted with the non-committal Guardiola and Howe will know that they are capable of springing a surprise or two with their teamsheets from week to week.

As for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City, Southampton, Burnley, Norwich City, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Chelsea and Manchester United, we will have limited information on the fitness front.

There remains the very real possibility, then, that a number of players will be declared as unavailable – or passed fit – long after the Gameweek 26 deadline has been and gone, leaving FPL managers powerless to do anything about it.

Outstanding Injuries

Mane, Abraham and Vardy injury updates ahead of FA Cup fourth round weekend

Sadio Mane (£12.3m), for example, could well return for the Norwich City match a week on Saturday, with Klopp having previously said that the Senegalese winger “should be fine” and that the winter break is “perfect for him to get back on track”.

The fact that even a shred of doubt over his involvement remains, though, means that non-owners considering a move for the premium midfielder ahead of a juicy-looking fixture at Carrow Road would be taking a slight gamble on his fitness.

The situation will be the same for all the other clubs in action from February 14-17, of course.

Adama Traore (£5.8m) is among the cluster of players currently flagged who we won’t get an update on ahead of the Gameweek 26 deadline although the FPL midfielder has travelled with the rest of the Wolves squad for some warm-weather training in Marbella and Nuno Espirito Santo said the winger will “hopefully be OK”.

The likes of Ben Davies (£5.3m), back in training with Spurs, could also return in Gameweek 26, perhaps putting Japhet Tanganga‘s (£4.0m) security of starts in some doubt given what Jose Mourinho had said previously about the importance of the Welshman to his system.

Christian Pulisic (£6.9m) and Paul Pogba (£8.3m) had been pencilled in for comebacks after the winter break, meanwhile, which could impact on Chelsea and Manchester United’s attack-minded assets.

We’ll have a full summary of the latest injury situation at all 20 Premier League clubs in Friday’s team news article and video round-up.

New Signings

It’s worth bearing in mind that a number of deadline-day captures may be involved for their new clubs for the very first time in Gameweek 26, having been ineligible to play last weekend.

Jarrod Bowen (£6.5m), predominantly an inverted right-winger at Hull City, may put pressure on Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) in the medium term, although the latter’s 18-point haul in Gameweeek 25 surely stands him in good stead for another start.

Odion Ighalo (£6.5m) and Borja Baston (£5.5m) will probably be expecting to be among the substitutes when their new clubs, Manchester United and Aston Villa, play in over a week’s time, while it remains to be seen if Cedric Soares (£4.8m) will be fit enough for his Arsenal bow.

New Sheffield United striker Richairo Zivkovic (£5.0m) will add to the uncertainty in his side’s attack, meanwhile, with Chris Wilder fond of rotating his forwards.

One January window capture who we already have seen in action is Danny Rose (£5.3m), who emerged as a substitute in Newcastle’s 0-0 draw with Norwich.

Rose could very well make his full Magpies debut at the Emirates, which could spell bad news for Matt Ritchie (£5.3m) at left wing-back.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) could soon present Fantasy managers with a new route into the Southampton defence, meanwhile, if Ralph Hasenhuttl deems him ready to feature against Burnley.

European Involvement

The UEFA Champions League and Europa League both recommence on the other side of the winter break.

Manchester City and Chelsea won’t be in Champions League action until after Gameweek 27 but Liverpool, Spurs, Manchester United, Wolves and Arsenal are involved in European competition immediately after Gameweek 26, with all five of those clubs having Premier League games between February 14-17.

Wolves have a generous six-day recovery period in between their meetings with Leicester and Espanyol but Liverpool, Spurs and Manchester United have European involvement around 72 hours after the completion of their Gameweek 26 fixtures.

While fatigue-led rotation oughtn’t to be too much of a concern given that these players would have just enjoyed up to two weeks off, the likes of Klopp and Mourinho could opt to manage game-time in Gameweek 26 if, for example, their respective sides are cruising against Norwich and Aston Villa.

Captaincy

It’s a strange captaincy conundrum this week, what with there being some excellent fixtures but also the possibility existing of us being dealt shock news on the injury front after the Gameweek 26 deadline.

Some of the leading candidates for the armband, Mohamed Salah (£12.7m), Mane, Son Heung-min (£10.0m), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.8m), Danny Ings (£7.0m), Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) and Raul Jimenez (£7.7m), all play a week or so after Saturday’s FPL deadline passes.

On the flip side, the main captaincy contenders this weekend – Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£12.0m) – are at the mercy of Guardiola’s rotation roulette, even if they are passed fit in Friday’s press conference (De Bruyne perhaps less so, given that he has started 17 league matches on the bounce).

The vice-captaincy takes some of the jeopardy out of the decision, of course, with Joe championing the strategy of captaining/vice-captaining players from different weekends within Gameweek 26 – if only to keep things interesting in this extra-long Gameweek.

Our captaincy video goes through the runners and riders and can be viewed below, while the Captain Sensible article will follow in its usual slot on Friday morning.

    Raheem Sterling will miss the visit of West Ham after scans revealed he has suffered damage to his left hamstring.
    The forward limped out of our game at Tottenham on Sunday with six minutes remaining and was assessed on Thursday at the CFA.

    He will continue to be monitored during the winter break and we will bring you any further updates here on ManCity.com.

    Everyone at City wishes Raheem a full and speedy recovery.

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Interested to see if mark has hit his WC button

    2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Does make Mahrez tempting but for 1-2 games it seems a bit rich.

    3. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Everyone at FPL Manager's forums wishes a longer break for Raheem to recuperate and come back stronger in a month after Kun, Mahrez, KDB and co. score a record no. of goals in just 3 gameweeks.

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

      Perfect timing for Sane’s return 😉

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Think Sane will take a few games to get match fit before we can see him becoming a regular.

    It currently feels very unlikely we will be able to navigate through GW31 using just transfers, if playing close to 11 players. I’d love nothing more than to free hit on a DGW but it feels like it’s made for GW31.

    1. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Depends. The big blank last year was very low-scoring, and the players that did score tended not to be ones that you'd have picked in advance. If the same thing happens again a free hit would only get you a small handful of points more than teams with 5-6 players. I'm not saying it's wrong, I'm just saying that there's a much smaller margin for error when so few teams are playing - it's quite possible you end up with 11 players scoring 2 points each.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Do you want 11 players from Burnley, Watford, Wolves, Bournemouth that aren’t in your team already though? (Aside from Jimmy there aren’t really any I’m interested in)

      Or look at it this way - is a team of those players really going to do that much damage to you i na single GW?

      The fact that they all play each other also means it’s unlikely more than half of a FH team can actually score points at all - I.e. it’ll be tough to get good scores from defenders AND attackers that are all playing each other

      FH in a big DGW currently seems a much higher upside prospect to me anyways

    3. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      It's quite possible there would be only 3 matches in gw31. So unless they are going to be goal fests on nil v nils I can't see where you would get much of a foot up by fielding 11 players from these pokey teams.

      1. RichardNixon
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Pope
        Mee Tarkowski Doherty Aurier
        Traore Son Alli
        Jimenez Deeney Haller

        or

        Pope
        Mee Tarkowski Doherty Digne
        Traore Richarlison Cantwell
        Jimenez DCL Pukki

        Both these could cause a lot of damage imo

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          I agree. I think it's a risk either way and folk shouldn't try to convince themselves otherwise.

    4. Lets VARdy Party

      This was always my plan anyway but i would be keen to know how i could use my Chips better

      Current Team:
      Dubravka Button
      Pareira TAA Aurier Williams Lord
      Salah KDB Greilish Traore Martial

      FH BB and WC

      All suggestions welcome

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

    Forward line of Vardy Auba Ings.
    A. Stick through blank. No Jim.
    B. Ditch Vardy for Jimi (this week or next). Cover LEI via midfield.
    C. Ditch Auba (next week or 28)

    Ings is not going anywhere.

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

    Salah or Aguero as captain?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Salah will be heavily capped, he's safe choice. Kun is differential to make up ground.

      1. fylde2022
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Aguero, for me.

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Have both, Salah.

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

      Is Mane fit?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Hope so. According to the article above he’s likely to show up.

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        If you kept you might as well start him IMO

      Boly

    3. Riverside Red
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Do you still have Rico..Boly best by a distance

  13. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Tanganga or Williams as 5th defender on WC and why ?

    1. Always Captain Kun
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Tanganga as seems more nailed

      1. Riverside Red
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Ditto

    2. Rt505

      Tanganga- don’t rate the Utd defence

  14. Jet5605
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    Hey guys, 1 FT and 5.9 ITB.

    A Maupay > Auba
    B Maupay > Jimi
    C Vardy & Maupay > Auba & Jimi for a hit
    D Maupay > Firmino
    E Another move?

    Guaita
    TAA / Holgate / Webster
    Salah / Grealish / KDB / Traore
    Vardy / Ings / Maupay

    Button / Lund / Williams / Cantwell    

    1. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      B. Or if you do another move maybe shift Lundy out to go double Liverpool in defence

  15. QUEN
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 21 days ago

    No love for Tanganga?

    Want to ship Lund and kelly to Lascelles and someone

    Will be bench players

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      i'm getting him on WC probably.

    2. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Boly not a bad option.

  16. ZeBestee
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 21 days ago

    With Sterling certain to miss the game, is Mahrez (C) punt worth a try? Aguero is the easier choice if you have both but these are the games where Mahrez gets his double figures.

    1. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Worth a punt.
      He's a greedy sod

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Agreed, that selfishness bodes well for him as a really good fpl option.

    2. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Like it - whenever he starts he looks like getting a haul. If he was nailed everyone would have him, and it looks like he will start the next game at least

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        I think with Sterling out, Pep would have no choice but to start him. They will lack pace with 2 Silvas, Gundo and Rodri all starting.

    3. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      will he start ? I think Jesus-Aguero-Bilva could be front 3

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Think he will, 90% I will say.

        1. Niho992
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          hmmm dont think so but ok

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            If Sterling wasnt injured, would have been a real concern but cant see Pep benching him as he has done pretty well on the previous games.

            1. Niho992
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 21 days ago

              Well i think Bilva and Jesus are certain starter for that game and one of the Aguero/Mahrez could be dropped

              1. Greek Freak
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 21 days ago

                Interested as to why you think Bernardo is nailed and Mahrez isn't. I'm not saying it isn't the case (indeed I don't know), but curious as to your line of thinking here.

                1. Niho992
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 21 days ago

                  just my gut.

    Might Auba struggle to haul against a Lascelles inspired Newcastle?

    Not sure whether to get Auba or Jimi. Jimi has Norwich at home next week.

    1. Rt505
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Jimi is better value imo

    2. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I'd get jimi , he's the better option regardless.

    3. Niho992

      Jimi no brainer.

    4. Riverside Red
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Don't listen to them..Auba will give you the best returns

    WC team GTG?

    Hendo, McCarthy
    TAA, Gomez, Soy, Egan, Lascelles
    Salah, KDB, Mahrez, Mooy, Hayden
    Aguero, Jimmy, Ings

    Plan is then to roll FTs and before GW28 blank do Aguero/Mahrez to Vardy/Barnes for free. Which frees cash to boost Mooy the week after

    1. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I'd ditch soy and upgrade mooy

    Anyone entertaining Martial > Mahrez?

    Or is this the part where Martial trolls sellers by popping up with a few goals after being sold

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      I would sell Martial, but not for Mahrez

    2. potatoace'scott talent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I'd entertain martial > [insert literally anyone here]

      Will keep Martial if i have. He is a troll, will haul the moment you sell.

      He's already done that to me before - I sold him for the one game he scored a brace, then got him back for his steady treacle of 2-pointers and the odd goal.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Yup, think he is a player who demands patience as he has huge ability but just cant express it on a consistent basis.

      I’d hold if you already have him. I’m tempted by Fernandes, but I think Martial will benefit from his arrival. Plus Pogba is returning soon

      Thought Martial > Barnes or Martial > Perez would be right up your street

        Vardy & Maddo already on board 🙂

        Good to see you back, you went awfully quiet after Leicester moved up the league table 😉

    My midfield is richarlison, salah, de bruyne and 1 other. Fleck or Perez.
    What do you guys think?

    My front 8 is as below:

    Salah KDB Mahrez Grealish Fleck
    Kun Ings Fleck

    Who should go to the bench?

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Fleck twice ?

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 21 days ago

        Deeney.

        Thoughts were on Fleck that I typed him in twice. 😀

        1. Niho992
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 21 days ago

          I'm starting Fleck this GW with Traore on the bench, but you should bench him 😀

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 21 days ago

            Haha, thanks mate.

            Just brought him in, Bournemouth are awful and can see him getting anothet double figures this gw.

            Grealish worth benching? Or even Deeney?

            1. Niho992
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 21 days ago

              I would bench Deeney before Grealish tbf

                • 5 Years

                Thanks mate, cheers.

        2. Rt505
          • 2 Years

          Fleck on the bench

      2. Riverside Red
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 21 days ago

        He's good

  22. Rt505
    • 2 Years

    A) Mahrez/Mooy
    B) Fernandes/Redmond or Perez

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A.

      Like Redmond from B and Mahrez from A.

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      A because I wouldn’t go near Fernandes

  23. Goonsquad245
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Unpopular opinion - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is not nailed.

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 21 days ago

      Reason? He is not moving away anytime soon.

        Arsenal will prioritise EL and they aren’t short of options up front. Rotation will hit hard

    Looking over the last two weeks or so, an interesting note is that ignoring the game versus Fulham in the FA cup, Man city did not score in their other two games against Man U in the EPL cup and against Spurs in the PL and required a very late goal against Sheffield United.

    Is Sidibe & Maddy > O'Connell & Mahrez (-4) worth it ?

    This was always my plan anyway but i would be keen to know how i could use my Chips better

    Current Team: 
    Dubravka Button 
    Pareira TAA Aurier Williams Lord
    Salah KDB Greilish Traore Martial
    Vardy Ings Ferminho

    Still have:
    FH BB and WC 

    All suggestions welcome

    Looking at possible Mahrez downgrades after this week to free up some funds to sort my defence out.
    Thoughts?
    Saint-Maximin (5.2): His heat maps and the eye-test in the cup game make me feel like he's good value.
    Fleck (5.1): I can see the appeal of good fixtures and great value, but he feels a bit too template.
    Hudson-Odoi (5.3) and Armstrong (5.2) look really exciting but they don't feel nailed on, and a very wild differential I've been thinking of is Podence (5.5) for Wolves, as he tore the greek league apart and was immediately thrusted into NES's team as a substitute.
