Guardiola promises rotation for Gameweek 36+ after City and Sterling rout Brighton

Brighton 0-5 Manchester City

  • Goals: Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) x3, Gabriel Jesus (£9.7m), Bernardo Silva (£7.6m)
  • Assists: Jesus x2, Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m), Rodrigo (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Sterling x3, Jesus x2, B Silva x1

A bumper 21-point haul from Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) was the cornerstone of Manchester City’s 5-0 thrashing of Brighton.

The 17.3%-owned midfielder hit a hat-trick as Pep Guardiola’s squad rotation looked out for the many, not the few, for a Fantasy change.

All four of City’s most popular midfielders, including Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m and 52.4%), started, with the 50,000+ managers who’d drafted in Phil Foden (£5.5m) the main losers of Gameweek 35+’s pleasingly dull instalment of Pep Roulette.

In terms of major alterations, the Poundshop Pep that is Brighton boss Graham Potter was the man to blink, although his five changes really didn’t help one bit.

The stats tell that tale with a sparse elegance – City had 26 attempts to Brighton’s three, with eight of those on target to the home side’s zero.

Five of the shots found the back of the net, starting with a lovely finish from Sterling, who curled home Gabriel Jesus‘s (£9.7m) pass from the edge of the area.

The Brazilian striker then hit the bar before scoring when he helped on Rodrigo‘s (£5.3m) flick from a De Bruyne corner.

That goal summed up the Belgian’s day – he was consistently the man who assisted the assister, while his one goal attempt involved a knuckle-ball free-kick that hit the outside of the post.

Two nil to the good before the interval, City doubled that advantage alarmingly quickly after it.

Sterling’s second, on 53 minutes, involved a close-range header from Riyad Mahrez‘s (£8.6m) cross, and three minutes later, Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) got in on the act by following up his own shot, which Brighton keeper Mat Ryan (£4.7m) should have dealt with far better.

It would be nice to report that Sterling saved his best until last, but that would be to ignore the major comedic value of the hat-trick goal.

The winger was released by substitute David Silva‘s (£7.3m) pass over the top. He flicked the ball over one defender, lost his balance in the ensuing tussle and, as he hit the turf, the ball bounced off his unsuspecting head, through Ryan’s legs and in off the post via a doomed last-ditch Dan Burn (£4.5m) clearance attempt.

It was messy and, in Fantasy terms at least, magnificent, helping Sterling to his highest haul of the campaign.

The goal also emphasised just how hot is his form at present – he’s produced three double-digit returns from the last four Gameweeks, of which he’s only started three. And in his six appearances since football resumed, Sterling has six goals, three assists, three clean sheet points and eight bonus.

Mahrez has featured in all seven City fixtures since the restart, starting six of them and producing three goals and as many assists. That might prompt alarm bells among his 10.4% ownership in the run-up to Wednesday’s Gameweek 36+ home match against Bournemouth.

And if it doesn’t, Guardiola’s post-match comments really should:

We played one team against Newcastle, today another one. A new four or five or six players will play against Bournemouth.

One of the men who might survive is Sterling. He was certainly on the receiving end of some major Pep praise, and possibly a hint as to his future selection prospects.

He is a huge competitor, self-confident, aggressive. He loves to score goals. We have wingers who score goals. This is so important. All the credit is for him, not just for the three goals, but they are important for what we have ahead of us.

City have been either brilliant or indifferent post-lockdown, winning four times by an aggregate score of 18-0, but also losing twice away from home.

Their desire to win, and win convincingly, is clearly being influenced by the fact that their best chance of winning the Champions League – possibly for quite a while – will come when that competition returns in August.

The need to find and maintain form is therefore driving this team to ruthless heights at present, and Bournemouth look ill-equipped to cope.

Jesus, with two goals and two assists from his last two starts, could be a decent differential pick as he’s owned by just 5% at present, although he is in the top five for Gameweek 36+ transfers-in, albeit a long way behind leader Sterling in that particular race.

Foden, meanwhile, has been used a lot more at home than away, and his cameo at Brighton suggests much heavier involvement to come in midweek, which could bring in good returns for his bargain basement price.

Brighton were uniformly awful against City, and Potter’s summation of the match is best left brief:

City were too good tonight. We were well beaten by the better team.

The in-form Leandro Trossard (£5.8m), who’d scored in consecutive Gameweeks before yesterday’s debacle, was the team’s brightest spark, although that was in relative terms only.

His two attempts led the way for the Seagulls, but seeing as two City defenders – Benjamin Mendy (£5.5m) and Eric Garcia (£4.5m) – and defensive midfielder Rodrigo also matched that total, it was little to write home about.

Overall, Potter’s side are more muggle than magic at present, unsurprising seeing as they’re all-but guaranteed Premier League football next season.

And their final three fixtures – home to Newcastle in between trips to Southampton and Burnley – will surely involve fewer goals than yesterday’s game, but could still all end in the same result.

The team’s most-owned asset in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) is back-up keeper David Button (£3.9m) – an apt summary of their Fantasy appeal as the season winds down.


Brighton and Hove Albion XI (4-3-2-1): Ryan; Bernardo, Webster, Dunk, Montoya (Lamptey 59); Bissouma, Mooy, Pröpper (Stephens 59); Trossard (Jahanbakhsh 70), Groß (Burn 78); Connolly (Maupay 59).

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Mendy (Zinchenko 64), Garcia (Stones 72), Laporte, Walker; Rodrigo (Fernandinho 72), De Bruyne (D Silva 64), B Silva; Sterling, Jesus (Foden 64), Mahrez.

        depends on your goals + position, and your competitor's teams I would say. Other than that it's a coin toss

          Best defender out of these to replace Aurier?
          Depending on if/what we hear from Mou tom

          A) Digne
          B) VVD (Have TAA)
          C) Azpi/Alonso
          D) Boly/Saiss (Have Doherty)
          E) Any other (Not United or City)

          Have Holgate & Cathcart on the bench not sure they will get any minutes.

          1. noquarternt
            • 5 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            Azp/Alonso.

            I own Alonso but would probably go Azp with a poor bench.

            1. Karan14
              • 4 Years
              22 days, 21 hours ago

              If Alonso is starting wingback tom I have to go for him. Thankfully we will get team news.

              I expect Holgate to get his spot back but not sure if it'll be this week or next.

              1. noquarternt
                • 5 Years
                22 days, 21 hours ago

                Yeah Alonso...do you know how early and reliable their line up leak is?

                It’s in the middle of the night for me, but I reckon if he starts I might captain him...

                1. Karan14
                  • 4 Years

                  FPL Rockstar on Twitter is very reliable.

            Digne. For attacking threat. Fixtures are the best too.

              Yeah I like Digne just want to hear from Carlo as it looked like he had a cramp or something.

          Salah and Mahrez to Sterling and Pullisic -4?
          Would captain Pullisic.

          Pope
          Diop TAA Doherty
          KDB Bruno Martial Salah Mahrez
          Vardy Greenwood
          Martinez DCL Fernandez Aurier

          1. PrettyDick
            • 2 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            I would personally just do Mahrez to Pulisic as I think Salah will bang this GW and Sterling could get rested

        7. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
          • 5 Years
          22 days, 22 hours ago

          Best defender for 5.6 or under?

        8. Amey
          • 1 Year
          22 days, 22 hours ago

          From FPL point of view, think this will impact on the moral of players ??

          As if they need it vs Bournemouth Watford Norwich 😀

          1. PrettyDick
            • 2 Years

            If it does I'm not sure that it's necessarily better. If the ban had stood they would have been pissed and wanting to show the world how good they are. I reckon

              • 1 Year

                lol yeah. Of course they are going to smash them either way

            They’re playing to get picked for their champions league games in August.

            Think the morale and urgency would already be quite high.

            1. Zenith UK

              This, next game is Madrid (CL) so they're all going to want in.

          • 2 Years
          22 days, 22 hours ago

          What is Pep's best team? If they were playing a CL-final today, how'd they line up do you think?

          Ederson
          Mendy - Laporte - Fernandinho - Walker
          Rodri - Gundogan/David Silva
          Mahrez - KDB - Sterling
          Jesus

          Anybody think differently?

          1. noquarternt
            • 5 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            Yeah I think you’re on the likely best team.

          I'm sure I'm not the only one using my free hit this week to take advantage of some appealing fixtures. But the big question, as ever, is Pep Roulette home to Bournemouth.

          Here's how City have lined up since the restart (hope the formatting works ok):

          First fixture was the double gameweek
          () off bench
          R rested (may have been benched, dropped, injured or suspended)
          * FA Cup

          Ederson 90,90 90 R* 90 90 90 90
          Bravo R,R R 90* R R R R

          Otamendi R,90 (16) 90* (11) R 90 R
          Laporte 69,(29) 73 90* 78 90 R 90
          Mendy 90,R 58 90* 90 R R 63
          Cancelo R,90 R (19)* (17) 90 45 R
          Stones R,R R R* R R 90 (18)
          Zinchenk R,90 (31) R* R 90 90 (26)
          Garcia 90,R R R* 90 90 R 71
          Fernan (20),60 76 R* R 90 R (18)
          Gundo 90,R 90 90* 90 R (45) R
          Rodri (20),90 54 (19)* 90 R 45 71
          Foden (25),78 R (24)* 90 (31) 60 (26)
          Bilva (25),90 54 (24)* (11) 90 (29) 90
          Dilva 64,90 (35) 64* R 90 90 (26)
          Mahrez 64,60 90 64* (32) 58 74 90
          KDB 69,(29) 90 71* 90 (31) 90 63
          Sterling 90,R 90 90* 78 58 (29) 90
          Jesus 79,(45) (35) 90* 57 90 60 63

          Pep has promised rotation. Make of the above what you will... I thought it would help, but it really is a bit of a roll of the dice!

          My thoughts... Ederson seems to be the only sure-fire bet, with Bravo likely playing the FA Cup game. Laporte a good candidate to be rested ahead of the FA Cup tie, maybe Stones coming in partnering Otamendi? (although Fernandinho another possibility, with Laporte-Garcia in the FA Cup) Cancelo and Zinchenko look like strong contenders to be rotated in at RB and LB.

          It's tempting to load up on three attackers, but which three. Dilva and Foden look like they could be rotated in. Jesus-Sterling to play a similar 60-30 striker role like Newcastle (H)? Ridiculous to pick patterns, but in the league KDB has started two then been benched... he's started the last two... 20-30 minute cameo replacing Dilva or Foden? Tommy Doyle will probably make another appearance off the bench, replacing Bilva or Mahrez at around 64 minutes.

          I'm guessing a team similar to Burnley (H) as the second match of the double gameweek.

            Fernandinho, Dilva, Gundo
            Foden, Jesus, Bilva

              No way Jesus starts 6 matches in a row in all competitions. Id say Sterling plays false 9 as he got rested last gw

              1. PrettyDick
                • 2 Years
                22 days, 21 hours ago

                I think he does, because he:
                1. wants/needs to get his only striker firing, and it's bournemouth
                2. He was hooked early last time, and has been on most occasions
                3. He looked pissed and wanted to stay on an score goals

              2. Maddamotha
                • 3 Years
                22 days, 21 hours ago

                You might be right, I am only guessing.

          3. PrettyDick
            • 2 Years
            22 days, 21 hours ago

            I wouldn't only look backwards in trying to predict Pep's team this GW, but also look forward. Three days after this GW they have a more important game. If you think about how he would like to line up against Arsenal, and then count backwards I think you're more likely to get it right.

            For instance; I think KDB would've been a sure starter if it wasn't for the Arsenal game. Now I'm not as sure. Same with Sterling. Also I think the Arsenal game makes Mahrez a sure bench player this GW.

            I know it's all guessing, but a guess can be more or less educated(calculated)

            I’m leaning towards Foden, D Silva and Sterling.

            Could make argument for Jesus but prefer Vardy / Ings / Greenwood

            1. PrettyDick
              • 2 Years
              22 days, 21 hours ago

              on a free hit? If so Vardy is a crazy shout imo. I agree 100% with Foden and D Silva. Between Sterling and Jesus it's a coin toss really but I think I'd go with Jesus, if not because I would want to fit other midfielder's in as well (antonio, willian, pulisic, united etc). If on a FH that is

                22 days, 21 hours ago

                Hmm Vardy is super streaky though and think he’ll get at least one goal. I also need to make up 20 points for top 10k so need to be a little bit different somewhere

                22 days, 20 hours ago

                Yeah midfield is a minefield with the free hit. I'm keeping Fernandes in, and I think I'll have Willian and Pulisic (with Azpi my third Chelsea v Norwich). Currently KDB and Foden complete that five, but it may become Dilva and Foden with Jesus up top.

              Thanks for this, a very useful post. Great analysis behind guessing the city starting lineup. GL

              Since restart:
              Jesus 429 minutes
              Sterling 435 minutes
              KDB 462 minutes

              Quite similar minutes...
              My prediction:
              Jesus and Sterling to start.
              KDB to come for last 30 minutes or so...

            Does KDB play deeper with D.Silva in the side?

              He does, but he doesn't play at all this GW. Maybe last 20-30 minutes

              Yeh this is why I’m considering dropping with a heavy heart. Not to say he’s stopped being an insanely gifted player but his fantasy appeal becomes slightly worse if he is assisting assisters more.

              What do you reckon to my (far too many) options below mate?

            5. Fit_to_drop
                22 days, 21 hours ago

                Im free hitting and if i do elect to go with Dilva, I wont be picking KDB

                I gather in the last game that Dilva played he played all of the assists that KDB would normally get so his presence does seem to changed KDB's role.

              FH; Foden or Antonio?
              Other midfielders are: Sterling, Pulisic, Willian and Bruno

                Antonio , west ham still playing for relegation.

                Desperately need a 6th midfield slot. I think Antonio might score again but boat sailed and well done to those who jumped on

              Aurier out for -4?

              A) Boly
              B) Egan
              C) Holgate (pray he's fit)

                You have no other defender on the bench? -4 for a defender is something I wouldn't do.

                  It's worth it because I have BB. If Aurier doesn't play, he won't play next week either when I'm BB'ing and I'd have to take the hit anyway.

                Looking for a replacement aswell. Have Taa and Doherty already and the rest is rubbish bench fillers.

                I think I will hold or go for Alonso/Azpi. I have Holgate and Kiko on the bench.

              Totally lost with 2 FT, any idea what to do?
              Mahrez surely won't start, while I think David Silva deffo will. Will Sterling play as central striker and Jesus get a rest?
              Seems stupid to waste Free Hit with 2 FT, right?

              A) Mahrez > DSilva?
              B) Mahrez & Salah > Sterling/DSilva & Pulisic/Antonio?
              C) Mahrez & Kiko/Lascelles > Aurier/Stevens?
              D) Something else?

                  Salah always seems to score against Arsenal tho - 5 goals & 2 assists in 5 appearances, apparently

                    and I'm 0.1 short of this FPL Pep roulette: KDB & Mahrez > Sterling & DSilva 🙁

              Was trying to be sensible and hold out on moves but now realised I’m 0.1m short of this move, which I liked at least for this week 🙁
              Mahrez, Vardy > Sterling, Giroud

              What to go for instead?
              A) KDB, Vardy > Sterling, Giroud (-4)
              B) Mahrez, Vardy > Jesus, Dilva (-4)
              C) Vardy > Jesus (and hope Mahrez/ KDB start/ play)

                D - I am doing similar this week but with Sterling for Antonio. Think KDB has looked a bit off the last couple and if D.Silva is likely to get minutes in the league it will effect KDB further.

                  *my moves should be Mahrez and KDB to D.Silva and Sterling (c) -4

                  You reckon Vardy still worth holding?

                  The only obvious nervousness would be Sterling barely playing especially as this is for a -4!

                  Tempted with KDB but safe pick is Bruno, he is nailed and he always returns

                There's absolutely no chance all of KDB, Sterling, Jesus start. Probably 1/3

                1. HarryB29
                  • 2 Years
                  22 days, 21 hours ago

                  That is such an overreaction, KDB and Jesus were brought off on 60 minutes the other day.

              3. Fit_to_drop

                  I think you need to look at Dilva or Foden for KDB

                D. Silva or Mahrez for the last 3 games? Have cash for both

                1. Shankly611
                  • 4 Years
                  22 days, 21 hours ago

                  I think Silva will play more so him

                Sterling early leader for the captaincy poll. Hmmm...

                1. Miguel Sanchez
                  • 4 Years
                  22 days, 21 hours ago

                  Great record vs Bournemouth too

                  tempted now to get Sterling for Salah instead of Jesus for Vardy.
                  Tough

                    22 days, 21 hours ago

                    I am considering Salah to Sterling too. Such a high-risk high reward case. It can be painful or super rewarding. make or break season ending too.

                    decision decisions ...

                  So risky, probably won't even play. Is Pep really going to risk his most in form player against Bournemouth at home? I doubt it.

                Foden looks a great pick this week but do we think he plays next 2?

                I'm trying to get a city attacker that also plays Norwich at home and not sure if he does?

                FFP might as well not exist.

                Unless it stands for Financial Fraudulent Process, of course.

                I want Dilva for the last GW vs NOR.

                Get him in now vs BOU?

                Or Get Pulisic (NOR) now & Dilva in 38, for a hit?

                So my conclusion so far from everything I've seen on here is
                Dilva foden start for sure, Mahrez most likely to be benched along with kdb(even if kdb starts, he plays deeper with dilva on the field) bilva also quite likely to start considering he's not part of the first XI at the moment. Fernandinho gundog start in mid (depending on gundog inury status)

                This would be my guess for front 6
                Fernandinho gundog dilva
                Bilva foden sterling/Jesus
