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′).

            Loving the bravery to go Salah-less!

            I’ve still got him but think City will explode and don’t want to lose KDB to fund Sterling so considering the below:

            Salah & Jimmy > Sterling & Vardy

          Candidate for worst transfer of the season. Salah -> Foden.

          Argh

          1. Would Ed Woodward

            I did Salah, DCL > Foden(C), Vardy -4, disgusting games tonight.

            DCL is gonna get at least a brace too.

              Two weeks ago, I swapped Egan for Mees......Mees gets injured in warm-up.....Egan gets two double digit hauls.

              But I am sure there are worse....

                And now I want to do Stevens >> Egan (to have some cash for Jimi >> Vardy)

                Hmm Salah show may have realigned FH thinking back to GW38 from 36.

                Big score promising Vs Toon

                  2 months, 15 days ago

                  I’m still thinking 36 is best as it allows a quick dump of Chelsea players before they play Liverpool in 37

                  2 months, 15 days ago

                  Hey guys, would you move Mane out for Salah for a -4 point hit?

                  All my ML rivals have Mane and not Salah so he could prove to be a differential

                  1. ElliotJHP
                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 15 days ago

                    Nah, Salah could be rested now

                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 15 days ago

                      Doubt he'll be rested, but Mané could still very likely outscore him...!

                  2. Utopsis
                      2 months, 15 days ago

                      Lol still?!

                          2 months, 15 days ago

                          Just reassessing the matter to ensure keeping Mane is the correct approach. Lol

                        I own Salah (about the only good thing to happen to my team this week)....and when Mane came on, I had to duck behind the couch!

                      Hi everyone! Egan is on bench, he is my first substitution 🙁 I hope Greenwood or Aurier will be rested tomorrow.. fingers crossed..

                      Best option?
                      A. Jiménez out, Vardy in
                      B. Luiz & Henderson out, Button & Mahrez in (-4)

                          Martial, Bruno, Greenwood, Vardy also very good options imo

                          Salah. He is not getting rested now. Naturally very fit guy who wants to win golden boot. Klopp will ask him does he want to rest and he will no.

                          Vardy, Antonio. Even ASM can be a great pick if fit, Watford is porous (stuck with foster now)...

                              I'd go Holgate then. Has the best fixtures.

                            Pool and Wolwes up next.

                            Help below, pls.

                              Wolves at home is a good fixture these days haha.

                          Holgate. Nice fixtures until end of season.

                          isn't Holgate injured?

                                He's definitely flagged. No idea on extent of it, though.

                          Extremely weak bench, have to solve somehow.

                            It's a misconception that you NEED a strong bench. Believe me, I currently have 34 points for this GW and 27 on my bench, which are almost certainly not going to be of any use whatsoever.

                            Meanwhile, you have people like this guy who did just fine this week, despite not even being able to put out 11 players: https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/2496505/event/43

                        Mane & Rashford out for Martial & Vardy? 4 point hit. Mental?

                            Don't sell Mane. Esp. not for a hit

                            Keep Mane. Rested and ready to rumble!

                            Bit Mental yeah, but could also work. Risky is the word, I think.

                            Selling Mane for a hit is asking for trouble - a bit like those who sold Salah this week.

                            They called me mad because I wanted to sell Alonso+Mane+Jimi to Digne+Sterling+Kane(-8). The hit was already payed with Kane yet to play.

                              Can you do Laca to Vardy? Can actually just hold everyone else. Not great but:

                              Grealish back playing as a no. 10, against Palace could return

                              Gomez decent shout for CS against Burnley

                              Play lascelles vs Watford

                              That'd be a decent 11

                              Yep, think I have figured out my moves now. Sorry to say it involves no Pep roulette or KDB as a deeplying midfielder 🙂

                              Pope and Ings two hot properties IMO for GW36, 37 and 38. Just want to see how Everton get on tomorrow then I will decide on Digne.

                              Current team and will stick this week to have 2 FT's

                              Start of GW35: Patrico > Pope, Doherty > Dunk, Nketiah > Ings -4

                              Team for GW36
                              Pope
                              Azpi TAA Aurier

                              Start of GW36: Azpi to Digne FT

                              Team for GW37 and 38

                              Pope
                              Digne TAA Aurier

                              Button Dunk Connolly Robinson

                              Only a 4 point hit 🙂 and reckon a pretty jammy team.

                                  Does planning this far ahead often work out? Serious question. Cause so much can happen in that period.

                                    Could change if Everton are pants tomorrow then I will stick with Doherty which means I need to make cash available for Ings.

                                    Nothing wrong with planning.

                                        Not at all! Just curious how often these plans have materialised is all. Makes good sense!

                                    Hi guys,

                                    OR 19k. Top of both my mini-leagues with a 50 point and 20 point cushion. 2FTs - would you do anything here?

                                    Pope / McCarthy
                                    TAA / Van Dyk / AWB / Doherty (Boly)
                                    Salah / KDB / Martial / Bruno / Pulisic
                                    Jimenez (DCL / Connolly)

                                    Wolves form is the main issue I feel for my team and potentially lack of Vardy/Greenwood or an extra City midfielder (rotation uncertainty is a killer)

                                    A) Hold tight, faith in Jimenez & Doherty 1 more week then likely to Ings & Digne in GW36
                                    B) Doherty + Jimenez -> Taylor + Vardy
                                    C) AWB + DCL + Jimenez -> Taylor + Vardy + Greenwood
                                    D) AWB + DCL -> Digne + Greenwood

                                      Tricky one. Either B or D for me

                                    A Ederson Son > Martin Sterling (Triple City attack)
                                    B Maguire Son > VVD Martial (Triple United attack)
                                    C Hendo Jim > Martin Vardy

                                      Alonso sure to start? maybe Fernandes or sterling as captain, start Greenwood over Jimi?

                                        cheers.I am in trouble with Alonso but i want to keep him especially for Norwich at home.I can't bench Jimi!

                                          when Alonso comes good he'll make a bigger difference in rank, 3.3% owned, could be a huge differential

                                    Who wins?

                                    A) Lloris, Aurier, Greenwood and Kane(c)
                                    B) Bruno, Son and Kane + 4 pts
