De Bruyne and Foden unlucky as Silva and Sterling score big for Man City

Man City 5-0 Newcastle

  • Goals: Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m), David Silva (£7.3m), Raheem Sterling (£11.7m)
  • Own Goals: Federico Fernández
  • Assists: D Silva x2, Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m), Sterling
  • Bonus Points: D Silva x3, Jesus x2, De Bruyne x1, Sterling x1

Manchester City’s 5-0 win over Newcastle was very much achieved by the alternative options with the more mainstream Fantasy assets struggling to live up to their billing.

While Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) managed just one assist in the rout, Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) reminded managers how much of an explosive differential he could be for the remainder of the Premier League season as he scored 10 points on Wednesday evening.

The England international only played 29 minutes in Gameweek 34+ but still managed to come away with a goal, an assist and one bonus point as he operated as a centre-forward once again.

The fact that he initially was rested for this game is great news for the 16.3% invested in Sterling looking forward to the Gameweek 35+ trip to Brighton as it would imply he will start at the Amex Stadium.

However, he might be of more use to Fantasy backers in the Gameweek 36+ home game against Bournemouth, considering where his attacking returns have come since the Premier League returned.

From Gameweek 30+ onwards, every one of Sterling’s three goals and three assists has come at the Etihad Stadium, the player blanking in both of his away trips during that period.

Sterling’s latest spell up-front could be somewhat ominous for owners of Gabriel Jesus (£9.6m) in Gameweek 35+, who has struggled to make that spot his own since Sergio Aguero‘s (£11.7m) injury. The Brazilian by no means had a poor game, putting up eight points against Newcastle before coming off on the hour-mark.

Jesus could have taken a little more from the game too, which was very open in Manchester City’s favour, as he could not direct a first-half header beyond Martin Dúbravka (£5.1m) and saw his pass into Phil Foden (£5.4m) screwed wide shortly after. Jesus was also in possession of the ball when Matt Ritchie (£5.3m) tackled him and kicked it onto Federico Fernández (£4.6m) for the own goal that made it 3-0.

Whether or not Pep Guardiola decides to start him for that trip to Brighton is rather hard to second guess at this stage though. Coming off around the 60th minute sometimes implies the manager wants to keep that player fresh for the next outing, but that happened for Sterling at Southampton before his Gameweek 34+ benching. Perhaps, with both player’s minutes now managed over the last two matches, Jesus and Sterling could start together at Brighton.

After all, it does seem unlikely that Foden will feature from the beginning next time out as he is yet to make a start away from home since the Premier League restart.

Those in possession of the budget midfielder will be cursing their luck after his blank against Newcastle as he really should have come away with at least a brace.

After acting as the assister for the assist of the first two goals, Foden went through for a chance of his own in the 39th minute. A neat one-two with Jesus put the goal at his mercy, but the midfielder somehow managed to pull it wide of the post when he really should have scored.

It was even more galling for his owners in the opening exchanges of the second half. In the 49th minute, De Bruyne looped a cross over to Foden on the back post for what looked an easy chance from very close range. But the budget midfielder looked in two minds as he approached the ball, almost standing on it as he spooned agonisingly wide.

Despite the frustrating nature of both near-goal incidents, the level-headed way of responding to such a performance would be to retain faith in Foden, perhaps benching him for Gameweek 34+ and bringing him back into the starting line-up when Bournemouth come to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 35+. Even though he failed to return on Wednesday evening, the youngster still averages 9.3 points per home game since the Premier League restart.

Mahrez’s credentials for Fantasy inclusion continue to look good, especially at home. He was one of Manchester City’s most dangerous players before youngster Tommy Doyle (£4.5m) replaced him in the 74th minute.

The Algerian was rewarded with his 10th strike of the season, taking him into double figures for both goals and assists for the first time as a Manchester City player.

It was also Mahrez’s fifth attacking return of the Premier League restart, although, like many of his colleagues, the majority of them have come at home.

Even though the huge contingent of De Bruyne captainers were disappointed to get just one return from a 5-0 win, he was almost as unlucky as Foden not to come away with more from the 5-0 win.

In the 44th minute, De Bruyne played a shot-turned-cross into the box, only to see his own player Rodrigo (£5.3m) direct it over the bar like a defender’s clearance.

He was then stood over the direct free-kick won by Sterling in the second half, having netted plenty of them this season. However, it was David Silva (£7.3m) who pulled rank and dispatched it himself.

It was Silva who blocked another De Bruyne goal involvement in the 74th minute, the Belgian getting around the back on the left-hand side, squaring to his colleague who could only force a save out of Dúbravka from the edge of the six-yard box.

Then as stoppage time beckoned, De Bruyne won the ball on the right, offloading to Silva. He pressed towards goal from a tight angle but could not trouble the goalkeeper with his effort.

For all of those reasons, De Bruyne’s place in Fantasy teams remains exceptionally secure, especially with Brighton and Bournemouth up next.

Despite those late fluffs, Silva was actually the top-scoring player from this game, his goal, two assists and three bonus making for a 17-point haul.

Whether that sets him apart as an option for the run-in is probably still in question though. 90-minute outings in each of the last two matches will not have done him any favours in terms of starting at Brighton. Furthermore, since the Premier League came back, Silva has only delivered attacking returns in two of a possible six matches.

“We have games every three days so everybody has to play.” – Pep Guardiola

It was arguably very difficult to find too many takeaways from this game as far as Newcastle were concerned.

Recent injury problems forced Steve Bruce into a back-five that featured three full-backs, with both 

With Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.5m) and Jamaal Lascelles (£4.3m) standing a better chance of involvement in the Gameweek 35+ trip to Watford, the Magpies are sure to have better fortunes at Vicarage Road than they did at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Zinchenko, Stones, Otamendi, Cancelo (Walker 46′); Rodrigo (Gündogan 46′), De Bruyne, D Silva; Foden (B Silva 61′), Jesus (Sterling 61′), Mahrez (Doyle 75′).

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Dúbravka; Rose, Fernández, Schär, Krafth (Muto 84′), Yedlin; Ritchie (Atsu 84′), Bentaleb, Shelvey (M Longstaff 66′), Lazaro (Manquillo 66′); Joelinton (Gayle 66′).

    Salah to Mane or Sterling worth it this GW for a hit? Can't decide if Salah will start to chase golden boot despite Firmino and Mane already rotated.

      Sorry suggestion to sell Salah for a hit shouldn't have been the top post tonight. 🙂

        I think he’ll play every game. His conditioning is superb, he’s integral to Liverpool getting the points record, and Klopp will help him get the golden boot. Take out at your peril.

      I'm mulling this over too, hopefully we can hear from Klopp before the deadline. When I saw the team sheet, I thought it made sense that Salah is next in line to be rested/benched, but maybe not now. As Lateriser mentioned on Twitter, Klopp might have to appease Mane in some way, as he was only 1 goal behind Salah prior to the Brighton game.

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I was pretty certain Salah was going to be benched vs Burnley after seeing the team sheet as well but I'm less than 50% sure now due the fact that he is now in the race for golden boot.

        I don't think there is any need for Klopp to appease Mane though as he still played more minutes after the restart compared to Salah. I think if Salah was to be benched, it would be in order to protect Salah from injury/fatigue not to ensure he doesn't play more than Mane.

        1. mash
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          That's true, I forgot Salah didn't play in GW30+. I'm more inclined to think he will start in GW35+ now, but stll some way off feeling confident!

    Pepe Reina to save a pen tomorrow.

  3. yer old da

    Crept into the top 5k finally, with Bruno, Rashford, Greenwood and Kane to come tomorrow. Top 1k definitely within sight now.

      Chelsea is quite bad at defending set pieces so you could punt on C but Egan surely can't keep scoring every GW. I don't think Sheffield Utd CS is likely.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I think Lascelles looks the best option if fit?

    What to do here lads? 1 FT and 1.4 ITB. Chasing 40 points in ML.

    What moves would you do for a hit?

    Martinez
    TAA-Baldock-Boly
    Bruno-KdB-Pulisic-Foden-Salah
    Jimenez-Rash(C)

    Nyland-Lascelles-Nketiah-Lund

    So many players i want to rid.

    Thinking to do Lund to Maguire and bench Foden/Baldock.

    1. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      40 points isn't that much, maybe jimenez to vardy if you can afford, 3 or 4 players different to your rival , that have the potential to haul - i'd play Foden fwiw

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I cant afford that move for free unfortunately. Dont fancy hit imo

        Maybe i will get Maguire

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          or Ings - Maguire is a good pick, but unless he starts nodding in a few headers he's probably not going to close the gap much, but maybe a good move for now , correct captain pick over a couple of weeks could close the gap by 20 points

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Cheers mate. I prefer Jimenez ahead of Ings for next GW and main rival dont have United defence imo so thats a bit differential i guess

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

              true, and he might actually get that header and grab a 15 pointer, 40 points isn't so much so sensible moves may be the order of the day

              1. Niho992
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Yup. Actually i'm 40 behind 1st and 17 points behind 2nd in my ML. They have FH left so i do.

                It s time to risk i guess.

                Gap was 130 points 10 weeks ago

                1. SAY MY NAME
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 13 days ago

                  always more fun to win on the last day of the season, make them sweat 🙂

                    Haha you re right

    2. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      rash to greenwood for cash, maybe look at martial if you can find space in your team (and if there's any injury/team news in next couple of days)

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I can do Pulisic to Martial but i will want Puli for Norwich at home.

        I will wait surely for news

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          pulisic to martial could be good for the last 2 games, yeah wait and see on that one, good luck!

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years

            Thx. Cheers. GL to you too.

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Lund to Maguire sounds good! But you can save & play Lascelles too if he is fit! Your team looks great!

      1. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah i know but there is rotation risk and i wont have points from bench if Foden/Salah/Trent miss their games

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Foden & Salah will surely come from the bench!

          1. Pep Roulette
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            But you're right! You've only one outfield player on the bench! Do that transfer!

            1. Niho992
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 13 days ago

                Sterling! Surely starts the next one!

                1. Niho992
                  • 2 Years

            • 2 Years

            You re right probably but my bench is bad imo

  6. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Chances are that if I shift Mane he ends up with a hattie and I end up sobbing.

    I am sticking with TAA Salah and Mane till the end.

    Salah autocap with Mane vc.

    Just makes things less complicated and those who want to shift TAA, surely you know what happens next 😀

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Now that he was rested, I don't see why you'd consider taking out Mane anyway, especially against Burnley who gets crushed by top teams. He is a good captain option this GW. (Of course Salah also is, but just have doubts on whether he'll start).

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Magnus would approve. He got a 30-point Mane (vc) haul earlier in the season, and people said it was jammy. Joke's on them!

  7. rjcv177

    Save FT, right?

    Krul
    Taa, doh, aurier
    Kdb, bruno (c), mahrez, willian
    Kane, rashf, greenw

    Pope, sarr, mendy, taylor

    1. wulfranian

      yes

  8. mash
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Pope
    TAA AWB Doherty
    Salah KDB Fernandes Mahrez Martial
    Jimenez DCL

    Button Kiko Nketiah Simpson

    2FT, £0 in the bank

    Want to get Vardy in, had intended to enable it by downgrading Salah, but maybe not the best thing to do now! What would you say is the best path to do this?

    A) Salah + Nketiah to Pulisic + Vardy (do it anyway as most of my ML rivals don't have Salah)
    B) Jimenez + Mahrez to Vardy + Foden (and only have Kiko available on bench)
    C) Something else

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Doherty to Aurier (Spurs fixtures decent)

      Mahrez to Pulisic (Pulisic nailed)

      Jimenez to Vardy

      1. mash
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Cheers - mmm, that looks like an interesting one, I hadn't considered taking a hit. Will definitely consider this as it could pay off. I suppose I would run the risk of my B option with a single player bench, but it works well in other ways as the ML rival I'm chasing (13 points ahead at present) already has Aurier and Pulisic, but no Salah.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          My bench at the moment Button Connolly Nketiah Robinson.

          Team linked

          Just ignore all the hits lol

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Keep Salah! Get Willian instead of Pulisic. Doherty to Digne?

          1. mash
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Oof, would be 0.2 short of doing Doherty Mahrez Jimi to Digne Willian Vardy (0.3 short if Jimi drops tonight). So Digne not an option with this route unfortunately 🙁

    2. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Similar problem here - I really like Puli/Vardy in but selling Salah now just feels wrong.

      If you keep Salah will you cap vs BUR?

      1. mash
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Good question, honestly I'm not sure! I'm chasing a 13 gap to my ML leader who doesn't have Salah, so my captaincy would be between him and Fernandes, who my rival also doesn't have at the moment.

  9. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Got 2 FTs, 1.2 ITB, what would you do here?

    Patricio
    TAA, Maguire, Saiss
    Salah, Bruno, Martial, KDB, Mahrez
    DCL, Jimenez

    3.9, Femenia, Connolly, Taylor

    Was all set to do Salah/DCL to Pulisic/Vardy but surely can't sell Salah now?

    1. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Maybe Patricio+Jimenez->Fabianski+Vardy.

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Decent shout but only 4.6 to spend on a GK if I did Jimi to Vardy

        1. wulfranian
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Martinez or McCarthy?

    2. mash
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      How much cash do you need to free up to do Jimenez to Vardy?

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        0.6, could afford Mahrez to Puli - but I have one eye on DCL to Ings too and couldn't afford that if I went down that route

        Exact cash for Mahrez, DCL, Jimi to Antonio, Ings, Vardy -4 but not sure about that now Haller is back

        1. wulfranian
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Dcl might play well today.

        2. mash
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I think your -4 plan sounds good, I think I read somewhere that West Ham played Haller and Antonio together up top when they were last both fit, so might not be as big a risk as it seems. Getting Ings in early is great too!

    Would you be concerned startIng KDB Foden Mahrez next game week with bench of Aurier Fernández ? Or get Sterling in for Mahrez?

    A Just start all 3 But don’t captain
    B Transfer Mahrez to Sterling (-4) and captain

    1. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      not worth the -4 imo, with pep roulette we just don't know, even if mahrez is benched he could 'do a sterling' and come on with a late flurry of points

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Probably A but B is certainly also an option.
      Guess it depends a bit on your C options and your situation in ML's?

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        39 points behind in second place. Rival only has KDB and will probably captain Salah who I foolishly transferred out to get Kane in ( not so foolish of course if grabs a hat trick!)

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      The problem with triple City right now is you need a nice bench.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Aurier Fernández and ...... Nketiah?!

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I would do drop one City mid for Willian or Pulisic. Both nailed.

          1. dunas_dog
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Cheers. Rival has Pulisic but will consider Willian. Only concern is fixtures not great other than home to Norwich

    Earlier this night i was thinking Salah out on FT for Mane or Sterling seemed like a good idea.

    But now I'm thinking Salah(C) as I'm the only one in my ML who has him.

    Keep Salah and give him the armband or 'too risky', as both Mane and Firmino has been rested?

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      He won't start. Sell for Sterling. If you're set on keeping him, definitely don't captain.

      1. ryacoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Why do you think he won't start? The whole team today played like it was their only goal to get him the golden boot

        1. COK3Y5MURF
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          4 starts in 12 days would be an injury risk. Plus they have Arsenal and Chelsea after Burnley which Klopp would need him fresh for. Mane was in the running for the golden boot too before today, yet Klopp benched him. Keeping his players healthy is the priority, not the golden boot.

    took a punt on Mendy this week for Lascelles as a differential chasing 35 points in ML as thought he was rested against soton and pretty nailed for a banker CS tonight..... anyone any idea whats happening here? Injured, dropped, rotated??

    Have 2ft and not sure if to accept mistake and cash him in?

    a) jimi/mendy (if injured/dropped) > vardy/lamptey
    b) jimi/doherty > vardy/justin

    a obviously free's up the 3rd city spot though with midfiled of kdb, mahrez, bruno, salah, martial im in no immediate rush to butcher mid to squeeze in another

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Dropped is what I think but could be totally wrong. He hasn't been very good lately.

  15. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years

    Stick with pack (Vardy) or differential (Jesus)?, chasing in ml most the others have Vardy

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I know he missed 2 excellent chances but very strange how he was taken off at 60 mins. Reading between the lines I could see him starting...

        1. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Sterling was taken off before 60 vs Soton and he didnt start.

          1. Athletic Nasherbo
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            Mahrez the same and did, so not a solid argument there.

            1. Niho992
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 13 days ago

      I hope not. I want him to start vs Bournemouth at home

      plays, yes. starts, no. my opinion though.

      1. Athletic Nasherbo
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I think in similar fashion to Jesus, Foden will start so he’s not dwelling on those misses.

    Whos scores more in 36?

    B. Pulisic vs norwich home

    Bare in mind that it is also fa semi the week after so possibility that they could rested maybe??

    1. Dynamic Duos

      B

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      Benteke would destroy Norwich at present. My money would be on Pulisic.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Hey DZ,

    Happy with a mahrez goal today but am looking to sell, think he gets benched one of the next 2 games.

    Am looking at antonio replacement. Very favourable stats last few weeks including a lot of chances v Burnley tonight. Nprowch and Watford up next and j fancy him to get a couple of goals.

    Sound like a good move?

    1. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I have bruno lol, blocked from martial as already have 3united. Puli and William look good but they have Sheffield next and then norwich whereas Antonio has norwich and watford. Surely the west ham fixtures edges it?

          I would pick the chelsea mids. They are playing some swanky football. Just gotta pick which one, Pulisic looks like he could get a hatty soon, willian safer with PKs and assists

            Cheers for the feedback, j thjnkni would go pulisic if I had to choose one as he spends a lot of time in the 6 yard box and looks slightly more involved in open play. Kind of fancy antonio punt though. If it doesn't work this week could always get chelsea mid for the Norwich match.
