Recapping the best Man City players ahead of FPL restart

Manchester City players are the talk of the Fantasy Premier League community ahead of Double Gameweek 30+, with good reason.

They face Arsenal and Burnley in the opening round of Project Restart matches.

We are currently recapping every team in the Premier League as FPL prepares to resume later this month, using data from the period just before March’s coronavirus suspension.

While we appreciate that much has changed since then, it still serves to know who went into lockdown in the best form.

We continue that series with a full examination of the Manchester City squad, using Gameweeks 23 and 29 as our selected period as they missed out on Gameweek 28 due to the League Cup final.

    Raz is the one for this DGW !!!

      I still have him from when I brought him in for the double so I'm going to keep the faith and let him have his Arsenal game.

      1. Amey

        Good company for me then 😀

        Win the whole thing. Good luck mate.

          Thanks mate. From what I can see 2nd still has his bench boost and wildcard but the ones below don't so hopefully get off to a good start this week and make a gap.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 25 days ago

            Yes !!
            I'd be very very happy if someone from FFS wins it.
            It's like my community 😀

    2. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Not for me. 14 blanks in last 18 gws is shocking for 11.7m player

      Will be heavily rotated now with games coming thick and fast and Sane is back is another threat

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        You're right. He's a one week punt for me.
        Next GW he'll become Mane or Son

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I am with ya!

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Great to know that bro 😀

    4. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Ederson could easily outpoint him ...

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I am not arguing 😀
        One week punt !

      Hello Amey mate! Hope you’re keeping well.

      Personally I’m using Mahrez to spread funds rather than Sterling. Just don’t think he’s worth the extra cash given we have no clue how many mins he’ll play in the usual Roulette!

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Don, my brother 😀
        I am very very happy to see you !!
        Hopefully you and your family are doing well.

        And yes, RAZ is an expensive punt. But i have Mane who's Everton away who don't really like you guys 😛
        So i am taking a punt

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          Happy to see you too!

          I decided to ditch the 0.2 I had on Salah for BB ahead of WC next week. May as well stick to a standard-ish strategy! My team’s on the next page.

          How you feeling about the run in?

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 25 days ago

            I have only FH remaining.
            Team i am running now is:

            Leno
            Taa Egan Siass
            Raz KDB Bruno Grealish
            Auba© Vardy Jimenez
            3.9 lascelles Luiz Taylor

            Raz will be Son & Freakish will be Martial in subsequent GW.

            I am buzzing for the start bro 😀

            Replied on your post next oage

          2. Amey
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 25 days ago

            I am possibly going without a pool attacker.
            I hope Klopp will rotate like hell after 2/3 GW's.
            Next 3 GW's aren't really high scoring pedigree too.

            So i will take that risk ti get Auba Sonny Martial Bruno Vardy KDB in one team

  2. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Ederson, KdB and Sterling.

  3. Big_Andy_GAWA
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    You folk reckon Mahrez is worth a punt? Only 8.5 mill, but could easily either start both or be benched in both... =o/

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      It's a lottery tbh

    2. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Between Pepe, Mahrez and Özil Mahrez seems like best punt out of the three.

      Jesus over Aguero is a ballsy option. Both might well start 1 match and come off the bench in the other.

  4. Warbling Wendy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Saka... 4.7, could be a great bench option this double gameweek for bench boosters? Or is his place in the side not certain?

    1. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Id rather pay extra 0.3 for fleck who's nailed on and could sneak in with a goal or assist

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Cantwell worth considering?

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Not certain but he’ll get some minutes for sure with tierny coming back from injury. looks a good player but hasn’t backed it up with goals and assists yet

    3. wycombewanderers
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Not for me

  5. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    11 of Agueros 15 benchings this season in all competitions has been away games (73%)

    So its highly likely Kun starts against Arsenal and Burnley at Etihad with 4 days rest in between. Jesus likely to start at chelsea away imo.

    Thoughts? Kun Captain locked in atm

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I can see rotation in Burnley home game. I can easily afford him and get him. But i am going with Raz & Auba combination

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Sterling is not worth it. 14 blanks in last 18 gws is shocking for 11.7m player

        Will be heavily rotated now with games coming thick and fast and Sane is back is another threat

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 25 days ago

          You're right about his season. I am taking a punt. Let's see how it goes.
          Will sell for son/mane next GW anyways

    2. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      It entirely depends on the fitness and health of the players, nobody is really certain to start at this stage.

  6. Canary_Kid
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Worth using FH this week to get in DGW players without losing 0.4 on DCL, 0.3 on Fernandes, 0.3 on Trent etc.?

    McCarthy Button
    TAA Doherty Saiss Egan Taylor
    Salah KDB Fernandes Martial Saka
    Auba Jota DCL

    1. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Very similar to mine w three wolves, taa and salah. I’m leaning towards the FH in gw30 as I think the GW31+ looks good for most of mine. Then WC in Gw32 when there is info on who is playing etc

      1. Canary_Kid
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Yeah was thinking that as well. Just doesn't feel right using the FH in a gameweek we have unlimited transfers

  7. wycombewanderers
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    How's this DGW BB one week team looking?

    Ederson Leno
    TAA Lascelles O connell Basham Targett
    Grealish Pepe KDB fleck cantwell
    Auba Aguero Samatta

    Any feedback appreciated - thanks

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Is it worth spending money on two DW keepers when only
      One is guaranteed. It’s nailed on so no risk of not playing. Otherwise good line up.

  8. zdrojo187
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    FH Team...

    Leno*
    Basham*,Baldock*,Targett*
    KDB*,Sterling*,Grealish*,Ozil*
    Auba*,Kun(C)*,Vardy

    Button,Lascelles,Kilman,Amartey
    Any suggestions or GTG?

  9. OleGGMU
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Hi Lads
    great to see the season return, i hope everyone is well.
    looking for an RMT and transfer advice

    Currently

    Hendo
    TAA, VVD, Egan, Baldock
    Mane, KDB, Bruno Fern
    Auba, Rash, Jimi
    Bench : Pope, Saka, Lasc, Douglas Luiz

    0.5 ITB

    1. Labile
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Sick team no improvements needed love that Rashy

      Can you check out mine?

      1. OleGGMU
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Cheers for the reply mate, much appreciated, yeah Rashy is a bit of a leap of faith for the first gw back, trusting mourinho's bad record against ex teams to continue.
        Thoughts on Jamie Vardy + Martial as an alternative to rash+ Bruno?

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Obviously you are not interested in the upcoming DG

      1. OleGGMU
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I do have interest in it but looking at long term aswell

        Thoughts on this were I to commit to the dgw

        Hendo
        TAA, VVD, Egan
        Mane, KDB, Grealish, Fleck
        Auba, Kun, Jimi
        Bench : Pope, Saka, Lasc, Williams
        0 itb

  10. Labile
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    0.0 ITB
    Leno McCarthy

    AWB TAA C.Taylor Lascelles Egan

    Bruno Salah KDB Grealish Fleck

    Raùl DCL Kun

    Any suggestions? I’ve only got BB left.

    1. OleGGMU
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I like it, prem return is complete unknown and Kun is always a top pick and arsenal are notorious defensively
      I like the spread out in def, had c. taylor and ditched for baldock

      im guessing a 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 is best to go for the first gw back ,benching either fleck or DCL
      if I were to switch things up for just this gw, perhaps AWB to an SHU/wolves def to partner TAA+Egan

      Otherwise, g2g imo

  11. Easy Cheesy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Any views on a FH using kdb, sterling, mahrez and auba, laca and nketiah? It isn’t going to win team of the week but probably covers you from Benching frustrations? Then three shu defenders/ GK and grealish and TAA

  12. Aaa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Any thoughts on this for gw30+? Plan to wildcard 31+

    Henderson/Leno
    TAA/Lund/Targett/Boly/Ake
    KDB/Mahrez/Grealish/Fleck/Willian
    Aguero/Auba/Samatta

  13. Jullepuu
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Which one should I drop from these 4 and why? (No wc left)
    Salah, KDB, Auba, Kun

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Salah probably. Tough next few and then win the league by then. Not without risks clearly.

      1. Jullepuu
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        Between Salah and Kun at the moment. Close call

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Auba

  14. Warby84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    What’s the best mid-priced forward..

    A. Ings
    B. Pukki
    C. Calvert-Lewin

    Other strikers are Jimenez and Aubameyang..

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Currently leaning towards DCL

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah DCL as well but fixtures not great. I’d rather hedge my bets on one of the wolves pair

    3. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Leaning towards Pukki as they are fighting to not get relegated

  15. Labile
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Thoughts on Ayew?

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      You are joking right

    2. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years

      Troublemaker, deservedly banned from here ages ago 😛

      1. Labile
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 25 days ago

        ??

        Jordan Ayew of Crystal Palace.

    3. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      I don’t think he is a threat at all and I think they have some tough fixtures as well. What about one of the Arsenal pair up top?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 25 days ago

        I’ve got him in as 3rd striker with jimi and rash

        Then again I’ve got a 2 million rank and no chips left

    4. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Rash is a good bet but he has been out for a while and they have spurs who might give his back a test. I have FH him out this week but will be back next week along with martial and Bruno. I’m not even a Man U fan! Haha

  16. Tinmen
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Damn, it’s good to be back!!
    Okay folks, how’s this bench boost looking?

    Hendo Leno
    TAA Egan Stevens Mendy Mings
    KDB Sterling Grealish Cantwell Fleck
    Auba Tammy Jimenez

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Not bad. Personally mendy and Tammy are the risky picks but good team

    Bournemouth looking to complete the great escape in VFPL?

  18. ZLATAN'S PONYTAIL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    For those thinking of BB this week and WC next GW. If you're selling players you have value tied in with the intention of getting them back on WC, its worthwhile noting that you'll be buying them for more money, and have less funds for a strong bench. With the amount of subs and likely rotation, I think a strong bench for the remainder of the season is essential.

    1. Vertigo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Some great bargains though.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Great value in defence available.
      3rd bench player can be fodder.

      O don't seee any problems with less TV currently

  19. Sike

    Ederson Ramsdale
    Egan Stevens Trent Doherty Targett
    De Bruyne Sterling Grealish Sarr Cantwell
    Calvert-Lewin Aubameyang Jimenez

    • 7 Years
    8 months, 25 days ago

    Evening Folks hope you at=re all safe and well,
    It's great to be back and with a DGW to boot.
    How is this for starters? BB team

    Hendo-Reina
    TAA Lundstram Mings-Saiss Lund
    Grealish Ozil KDB Fleck-Saka
    Aguero Auba Jesus

    My thinking was with the 5 subs there is a definite chance both Aguero and Jesus will be used.

    1. Thia6o
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      2nd Lund is Maguire-Sorry

  26. King Henrik

    Is there a better 1 GW punt than Mount? Not a DGW player though.

    1. Exeterslowly
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 25 days ago

      Could be but is he better than Barnes as a punt outside of DG week?

      1. TheTinman
