FPL managers face ongoing Pep rotation after much-changed City lose to Saints

Southampton 1-0 Manchester City

  • Goal: Che Adams (£5.3m)
  • Assist: Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m)
  • Bonus: Alex McCarthy (£4.5m), Adams x3, Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) x1

A wonder goal from Che Adams (£5.3m) and a defensive performance that was the bus-park version of 300 meets Dunkirk produced one of the more unlikely wins of this longest league season.

Short version: Southampton score after 16 minutes and Manchester City fail in their attempts to equalise.

Stats version: Only three City players (out of the 13 who play) don’t have a shot – and one of those is Ederson (£6.0m).

Fantasy version: Danny Ings (£7.3m) doesn’t score, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) doesn’t start and the bonus points are shared out between three players with a combined ownership of 4.3% in Fantasy Premier League (FPL).

Full version…

City coach Pep Guardiola almost out-pepped himself by making six changes to his side, with benchings for the 52.2%-owned De Bruyne and Phil Foden (£5.4m), whose 12-point heroics against Liverpool in Gameweek 32+ had earned him nearly 200,000 new managers. The 12.2%-owned Kyle Walker (£5.6m) was another sent for an evening of social isolation behind the dug-outs.

As for Southampton, close to 100,000 had bought Ings on the back of his stellar Project Restart form – three goals and one assist – but the Saints frontman blanked.

One of the key reasons for that was he had just the one attempt all match. It was a great opportunity, on 44 minutes, that he blasted over from inside the area, and it was a rare one – Southampton’s only big chance of the match.

City had five such clear-cut opportunities.

Two came in a frantic few seconds of play in the first half that summed up the entire match.

Home goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (£4.5m) was forced into a fine save at his near post from a fierce Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) drive. The ball found its way out to Fernandinho (£5.1m), whose deflected shot hit the inside of the post but stayed out. Possession was recycled to the right flank, where a cross led to another McCarthy save, this time from a David Silva (£7.3m) header, before Sterling narrowly curled wide from the rebound.

All of that happened after the Saints went ahead.

Adams had been selected up front alongside Ings in a 4-4-2 formation that conceded the width of the pitch to the visitors while giving Southampton two players available for quick counters and the opportunity for a high press.

So when Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.2m) mis-controlled the ball in his own half, the home side had the personnel on hand to capitalise.

Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) put in a challenge and the ball fell to Adams. The striker had gone 29 matches without a goal for his new club. Such a run invites doubt and dark thoughts. But Adams didn’t stop to think when the ball arrived at his feet. Instead, he curled a wondrous first-time lob, from 39 yards, over Ederson and into the net.

To claim that Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side just parked the bus from then on in was not entirely true. They worked Ederson four times in total and broke with consistent purpose over the 90 minutes.

But their victory was definitely built on a backs-to-the-wall doggedness – and some slices of good fortune – that made for a one-sided affair involving pure anguish for the many Fantasy managers with City assets in their squads.

Both Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m and 10.3%) and Sterling, owned by 16.3%, endured a frustrating evening before being subbed off on 59 minutes, thus robbing their owners of another appearance point to soften the blow of their blanks.

Their replacements, Foden and De Bruyne, fared no better, although the Belgian’s work-rate was phenomenal – more of that in the Members Analysis section.

The two Silvas, David and Bernardo (£7.7m), mustered seven attempts between them, only to be repelled by a mix of McCarthy, any number of Southampton defenders throwing their bodies in the way and, occasionally, the duo’s own profligacy in front of goal.

But neither was as wasteful as Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m).

The Brazilian has managed only one assist since football returned. And he’s scored just the one goal since Gameweek 22.

He had plenty of chances to rectify that at St Mary’s Stadium. Six chances, to be exact, of which three were clear-cut opportunities, including a couple of close-range headers he really should have buried.

Still owned by just 4% in FPL, Jesus should really be a tempting differential option for City’s final fixtures, which will involve Newcastle at home and then four of the bottom six. But his woeful lack of form, and good ‘ol Pep Roulette, mean he remains strangely unattractive.

His future is not looking bright at present, and Guardiola, while describing yesterday’s game, could have been talking about what is still to come as well:

With ten Southampton players on the penalty spot, it’s difficult. I am so proud. I like the way we played but it’s not enough. It’s not a complaint of the players. Far from it. The game was a little bit of a repeat of how some games have gone this season – one mistake and they punished us. After, we created a lot, but as I say, they had ten players behind the ball.

Such a strong run of fixtures pretty much demands inclusion of key City assets in your Fantasy side, just with the usual caveats involving rotation.

As for the Saints, trips to in-form Everton and Manchester United are up next, which doesn’t exactly scream ‘buy buy buy!’.

But despite being safe for another season of top-flight football, the players have made it clear they’re not beach-ready just yet, with three wins from their last four matches.

They obviously relished the chance to stick it to the Man City yesterday, and they’ll need to keep channelling that doggedness over the next two matches before their schedule (BHA, bou, SHU) eases and the attacking points might come rather more easy again.


Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy; Walker-Peters, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong (Smallbone 90′), Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Redmond; Ings, Adams (Long 70′).

Manchester City XI (4-1-2-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Garcia, Laporte, Zinchenko; Fernandinho; Silva, Bernardo; Mahrez (De Bruyne 59′), Jesus, Sterling (Foden 59′).

    KDB or Bruno (c)?

    1. Villa Velour
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Kev

    2. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Yes.

      I'm going Bruno so suggest you do opposite.

    3. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      KDB

    4. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Going Kev and fully expect Bruno to bite me yet again.

    5. yer old da
      • 10 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      I've captained Bruno these past 2 weeks, but it would be pushing your luck to hope for 3 double figure returns in a row so it's KDB for me.

  2. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 22 hours ago

    Foden or Sterling (-4)?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 22 hours ago

      Sterling. Gives you another captain choice

  3. Drogba Legend
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 22 hours ago

    1FT, .5 ITB

    Pat
    TAA - AWB - Aurier - Doherty
    Salah - KDB - Son - Bruno
    Green - Jimmy

    Martinez - Mount - Nketiah - Lascelles

    A) Free Hit
    B) Save
    C) Mount > Foden or Bowen
    D) Salah > Sterling.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Sitting at 94k and chasing ML rivals by 9 points..

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Prefer mount to Antonio but looks like you’re just short
      Foden decent. Mount not worth keeping

      1. Drogba Legend
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Cheers. Who would you drop to start Foden? Thinking one of the defenders or Jimmy.

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Tough choice. We’ll probably all have egg on our face for dropping Jimmy
          I’d say he or Doherty. Double defence is risky

    2. GREEN IS GOOD
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Save

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Actually, get Foden

        1. Drogba Legend
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Cheers mate.

    3. Villa Velour
      • 5 Years

      D

      1. Drogba Legend
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Cheers, VV. Think he’s too expensive to maybe get rotated?

    4. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Get Foden

  4. Leo10
    • 6 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Reece James or Saiss?

    James seems too risky rotation wise but huge upside.

    1. Drogba Legend
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Don’t think he’ll see enough time to be considered in FPL unfortunately.

      1. Leo10
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Yeah definitely a bit punty lol

    2. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      James go for it!!

      1. Leo10
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        tempted 😉

  5. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Need some help. Current team:
    Pope (fodder)
    TAA, AWB, Mendy, Doherty (Lascelles)
    Salah, KDB (C), Pulisic, Bruno (Dendo)
    Rashford, Jimenez (Calvert)

    Bench right? Don't know whether to give Calvert another chance

    1. Villa Velour
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      DCL to Greenwood?

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Already have 3 utd

    2. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      I'm benching DCL, which of course means this is when he finally scores.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        My thoughts exactly. But feel like jimenez and Doherty (the only options to bench for him in my opinion) have more potential for points than him.

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      GTG

  6. Bad Kompany
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Just realized that I have 9 players from 3 teams.

    Any update on Holgate’s injury?

  7. AK_FC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    G2G? Bench correct? 1 FT, 0.1 ITB

    DDG
    TAA - Doherty - Aurier
    Bruno - Mane - KDB - Mahrez - Foden
    Jimi - Rashford

    (Martin; DCL, Saiss, Lascelles)

    1. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      GTG b/o correct.

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Gtg. Who are you captaining?

      1. AK_FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        On Bruno, but definitely feeling tempted by KDB.

  8. jia you jia you
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Tempted to ship Robbo but think I'll take the sensible approach and save FT?

    Pope
    Trent Robbo Doherty
    KdB Sterling Brun(c) Martial Mahrez
    Jimenez Ings
    (Button Nketiah Saiss Williams)

    1. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Save

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Wow. Big at the back. I remember how popular that was at the start of the season.

      I’d save unless you want to get a third United player.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        have a third MUN player unfortunately

    3. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Not tempted to captain one of your City mids at home?

      1. jia you jia you
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 16 hours ago

        Tempted for sure but trust Bruno a lot more especially after my Sterling fail last GW! Home advantage, away disadvantage isn't really a thing now either.

  9. Scout15
    • 2 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Who do you think is best 4.5m or less defender?
    Is Holgate still the best option?

    1. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      If he's not injured probably. Failing that I'd say Taylor just cause you know what you're gonna get from Burnley.

  10. Duffy Dunk
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    If your only MCI is KDB & you want 1 more of their mids, which one do you get & why?

    1. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Mahrez, because he's reasonably priced and IMO their best fit player after KDB.

      1. Ruinenlust
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Will he stert this week?

    2. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Depends on how much money you have.

      1. Duffy Dunk
        • 3 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Not an issue, plan is to sell Salah.

        1. Scratch
          • 11 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          In that case probably Sterling, his fitness means he'll probably get more minutes than any other and he'll play forward when Jesus is benched

          1. Bad Kompany
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 21 hours ago

            This

    3. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Foden. Best value and you should be reasonably confident he starts every other game. much like the rest of the City attackers

    4. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Tough call.. Jesus should be the most nailed as Aguero is not fit. But still prefer Sterling or Mahrez. Foden a good shout as well

    5. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Mahrez for me. Sterling close but he could be do a rest and more expensive.

    6. JabariParkersEyelid
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Mahrez because he gets tonnes of points in limited minutes. Just been burnt by the 1 pointer but I have faith.

    7. Duffy Dunk
      • 3 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Thanks all, good luck

    Please suggest

    Thanks

  12. Scratch

    Need KDB back for captaincy this week. Which move?

    Salah -> KDB
    Son & Mahrez -> KDB & Pulisic / Willian

    1. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      KDB and Pulisic does sound good tbf.

      1. Scratch
        • 11 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Seems a good option alright, hate to lose Son before Bournemouth, even though Spurs look awful

  13. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…

    Burnley are playing very well now.
    Dyche should be knighted.
    I want him in my trench.

        Pure. Gold.

  14. reo19uk
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Salah and Joelinton to Foden and Kane for a -4?

    If do that then would need to bench 1 of Foden, Son or Jiminez?

  15. davies
    • 6 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Thoughts on Pulisic > Martial?

    1. DV8R
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Probably not. You'd want to keep Pulisic for the next 3 at least

    2. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Not for me. Pulisic looks class and there's enough MU assets elsewhere for you to have alongside him.

    3. Kung Fu Football
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      nah

  16. DV8R
    • 9 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Already did Son to Mahrez last gameweek. Didn't work out for me.

    Is it a good idea to do Mahrez to Son for the Bournemouth game?

    1. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      tough to transfer him back in. I'd back city to outscore spurs this gw.

      1. DV8R
        • 9 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        My only worry is for Pep to mess Mahrez owners up again

  17. B Sharp
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Saka or Sarr?

  18. PepSala
    • 4 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Captain one and give a reason please 🙂

    A) kdb
    B) sterling
    C) Bruno

    1. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      KDB.

      Honestly doesn't need to be explained. He's immense and almost as guaranteed as ever to start after benched last game.

      1. yer old da
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Bruno's immense too though but agree it has to be KDB

    2. AK_FC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      KDBruno

    3. Pep Roulette

      Sterling. Might play upfront.

      1. Skull And Gnomes 9 SCOTT TA…
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Pep should see that surely, Jesus couldn't hit a barn door shaped like a giant cross dripping with water that turns into Amy Winehouse, ffs!

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Kdb record speaks for itself
      Sterling if chasing

  19. yer old da
    • 10 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    First XI next week is decent, but with Femenia as my 3rd starting defender and a bench of Holgate and Lascelles, should I upgrade one of these defenders or swap Jimenez for Kane?

    A. Upgrade a defender
    B. Upgrade Jimenez to Kane?

    Pope
    TAA, Doherty, Femenia
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, Pulisic
    Rashford, Jimenez, Greenwood

    Subs: Martin, Holgate, Lascelles, Davis

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      I think Feminia will do a decent job at home against Norwich. Also keep Jimenez. Spurs look toothless in attack.

      1. yer old da
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Do nothing and roll the transfer? But it's Bournemouth. Bournemouth!

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 2 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          If you feel Spurs will smash Bournemouth, then get Kane for Jimenez. Go with your gut!

  20. wulfranian
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    With 240 minutes in the last 3 games for Pulisic when do you think will get his rest?

    1. The Suspended One
      • 7 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Tomorrow

  21. Athletic Nasherbo
    • 3 Years
    28 days, 21 hours ago

    Cantwell + Aubameyang > Foden + Kane (-4) ?

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Sounds good!

  22. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years

    Will Sterling stert???

    1. Pep Roulette

      Looks like it

          RIP.

          I thought you were talking about the footballer.

    Chasing. Is this madness?

    Salah & DCL > Willian & Kane

    1. Leo10

      Pulisic over Willian imo.

    Thinking save FT? Not a bad 68 points in the end to say I benched Greenwood ;(.

    Ederson
    TAA Aurier Doh
    Son Mahrez Kdb Bruno Pulisic
    Rash Greenwood
    (Martin, Jimenez, Kiko, Lascelles)

      Yes, save.

      Do you think Blades defence will be back to early-season form if all are fit? Would you play Jimi if you had my team where I need to play two of: Doherty, Jimenez, Stevens, Egan?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Hmmm tricky one. Very tricky... I'd probs edge towards Stevens and Doherty as they offer attacking threat but also a 0-0 wouldn't be a surprise.

  26. Leo10

    Think Gomez is nailed on for now is Lovren a threat for minutes?

    1. The Suspended One

      Lol

      1. Leo10

        Season is over so you never know who comes in to the team

        1. The Suspended One
          • 7 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          I guess

          1. The Suspended One
            • 7 Years
            28 days, 21 hours ago

            Question is, would you want him even if he was

            1. Leo10
              • 6 Years
              28 days, 21 hours ago

              5.3 for a nailed Pool defender is decent imo, especially with Brighton and Burnley next 2. Either him or Saiss and I trust Pool more I guess.

              1. The Suspended One
                • 7 Years
                28 days, 21 hours ago

                Yeah, except the nailed part.

                  That's the only issue 🙁

  27. TheOneAndOnly
    • 10 Years

    Who to bench?

    A) Foden (NEW)
    B) Greenwood (avl)
    C) Jiminez (shu)

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      C

      1. TheOneAndOnly
        • 10 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        On C at the minute, just seems off given their prices

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Between B and C for me, I had the same reason for starting Son over Greenwood this week... Look how that turned out 🙁

    2. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      A

      1. Pep Roulette

        What? Why?

        1. Leo10
          • 6 Years
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Because of your username lol.

          Foden will probably start but he's by far the biggest rotation risk out of those.

  28. Pep Roulette

    Thoughts on transfers for next week? I know it's early, just planning!

    Salah & Nketiah to Antonio & Vardy(C) for -4?

    1. Benteke Fried Chicken

      Lost me at salah being transferred out

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 2 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        Might be rested if he plays midweek.

        1. Benteke Fried Chicken
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          I reckon he’s rested once in the final 5 games, and in that rest game he’ll still have 30 mins in him.

          He wants the golden boot so will be greedy and on pens, even more so with Milner not fit.

          Keep.

          1. Pep Roulette
            • 2 Years
            28 days, 21 hours ago

            Good point. Will surely think about a 100 times more before taking this decision. Cheers mate!

          A 1-1 draw, JOC should be back and our defenders can cope with Jimenez in the air but who knows. I'm backing my boys :p

              Watch a match lately?

                  Ooo a wolves fan? What do you reckon mate? Was a decent game at your place, thought you just edged it though

                  1. A Dog Has Its Day
                    • 5 Years
                    28 days, 21 hours ago

                    Think we'll see the same scoreline tbh, I expect it to be a tight game as we both have something to play for

                  Use the stats you have access to my friend

                    you should watch the matches instead of looking at stats

    Looking to transfer Justin out. Looking at who is nailed in the Chelsea defence is giving me a headache.

    Is Zouma Christensen or James sort a shout for next 3 games?!

    1. Leo10
      • 6 Years
      28 days, 21 hours ago

      Would say Christensen is nailed. Rudiger was dropped after West Ham game yet Christ started again and got a clean sheet too.

    What to do this week? 2FT and 0.6 ITB

    Martinez, (Martin)
    TAA, Doherty, AWB, (J.Robinson, Ngakia)
    Mane, KDB, Bruno, Pulisic, (Guendouzi)
    Rash, Jimi, DCL

    Cheers

    1. Benteke Fried Chicken

      DCL gotta go. Struggling to find a pick at that price range though.

      1. melvinmbabazi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        28 days, 21 hours ago

        DCL and Rashford to Kane and Greenwood good moves?

        1. Benteke Fried Chicken
          • 1 Year
          28 days, 21 hours ago

          Not sure on Kane. Hasn’t looked great at all, also if spurs are beating Bournemouth 2/3-0 by 60 odd mins I can see Him getting subbed off as a mini rest as he’s due one.
