Why Man City assets underwhelmed in 2-1 win over Bournemouth

Man City 2-1 Bournemouth

  • Goals: David Silva (£7.3m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.8m) | David Brooks (£6.1m)
  • Assists: Silva | Callum Wilson (£7.4m)
  • Bonus Points: D Silva x3, Jesus x2, Brooks x1

Manchester City assets largely let the Fantasy Premier League community down on Wednesday evening as they limped to a 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

There had been plenty of interest in their attacking options for a meeting with one of the division’s worst defences since the restart, but Pep Guardiola’s rotation policy had the last laugh.

Raheem Sterling (£11.8m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£10.8m) were at the heart of that, coming into Gameweek 36+ on 20% and 11.5% respective backing for the captaincy among the top 10,000 Fantasy managers, and both inside the five highest for effective ownership at that level too.

However, with Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal on the horizon, which, to be fair to him, Guardiola has been talking up as a game he will factor into Premier League selections, there was a glut of key men named on the bench against Bournemouth.

“(The FA Cup semi-final is factored into the selection) a little bit but some of the players are going to play on Saturday. Every game since lockdown I rotate five or six players.” – Pep Guardiola


Sterling backers will perhaps be the most frustrated as he came on to play on the right-hand side of the front-three at half-time, shifted to a centre-forward role in the 77th minute but barely had a sniff all afternoon and scored just one point. That was his first appearance at the Etihad Stadium since the restart to feature a blank.

However, there was a potential silver lining for De Bruyne owners as he remained on the bench, kept fresh for the FA Cup encounter, allowing anyone who captained or selected him to get points for their vice and/or first substitute. That is sure to cause some interesting roughs and smooths in Gameweek 36+. Make sure you let us know about them ahead of the next Scoutcast.

To be honest, De Bruyne’s absence from the pitch on Wednesday evening was one of many reasons why Manchester City were ultimately outplayed on the own turf for the first time in a long while.

Across the 90 minutes, Bournemouth bested their illustrious hosts for shots, shots in the box and big chances, thanks to some predictably shoddy defending from a centre-back pairing of John Stones (£5.3m) and Nicolas Otamendi (£4.8m). In fact, the Cherries even broke the Premier League record for most goal attempts registered at the Etihad Stadium, and fewest conceded there, during Guardiola’s time in the Premier League. 

“It was a really difficult game, they played really well. We could not control it. Their high pressing was good. It was a difficult game.” – Pep Guardiola

It was these carefully timed forays into home territory that really stunted the attacking potential of Manchester City’s midfield and front-three, which featured Phil Foden (£5.5m) once more, making his fourth successive start at the Etihad Stadium.

But, unfortunately for the Englishman’s 6.4% ownership, he was a largely peripheral figure with David Silva (£7.3m) and Gabriel Jesus (£9.8m) the only two Manchester City options to offer much for their backers.

The two players nearly combined for an opening goal in the third minute when Jesus was played through on the right by an excellent Ederson (£6.0m) throw forward. The Brazilian dispatched a great ball across the box that fell just beyond Silva.

The Spaniard reminded Fantasy managers of what he could deliver in the Gameweek 38+ meeting with Norwich in the fifth minute when he curled a clinical free-kick under Aaron Ramsdale‘s (£4.4m) crossbar. While he may have to compete with De Bruyne for such responsibilities against the Canaries, it will, of course, be his last Premier League game at the Etihad on that occasion, which may allow Silva to pull rank.

The fact that Manchester City’s diminutive number 21 has now scored in every home match since the Premier League restart is, on its own, arguably good enough justification to include Silva in a Gameweek 38+ squad.

Less involved around the penalty box than he would have liked, thanks to Bournemouth’s plucky determination of field-position, Silva was about his business again in the 38th minute. He slid Jesus into the box, who stepped to the right of Steve Cook (£5.0m) and coolly buried his effort into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.

Sterling’s introduction for Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) at half-time was a cause for renewed hope after a subdued first period… but it was not to be.

Between then and full-time, there were no more than three moments when Manchester City might have added to their lead, but none of them involved Sterling in any real sense.

In the 71st minute, Silva played Jesus in, who was brought down by Cook and won a penalty. However, the video assist referee revealed that the Brazilian’s trailing leg had landed on the Bournemouth defender, overturning the decision and robbing Fantasy managers of a chance to see who would take the spot-kick in De Bruyne’s absence.

Shortly after that, Jesus fired an effort back across goal following a Foden through-pass, the ball sailing past the post. That was the striker’s last involvement before Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m) took to the field in his place, shifting Sterling into a central role for the front-three.

After that tactical switch, Foden was the only Manchester player who went close, showing some nice feet at close-range by the near post before Ramsdale did enough to smother a point-blank shot.

Littered between those sparing chances for the home team, were the reason why they struggled to get any rhythm going forward: Bournemouth’s constant desire to create problems of their own.

Josh King (£6.1m) was the man asking questions in the first half, helped in his efforts by Dominic Solanke‘s (£5.1m) spirited pressing of Manchester City’s centre-back pairing.

After the former Liverpool man had won a 33rd-minute free-kick on the edge of the box, Junior Stanislas (£5.8m) nearly found the back of the net, his effort hitting the post, then Ederson’s head, and the woodwork once more.

But Eric Garcia (£4.5m) coming on to replace right-back Kyle Walker (£5.6m) at half time, and in the introduction of Callum Wilson (£7.4m) and David Brooks (£6.1m) played the biggest part in Bournemouth’s second-half onslaught, potentially even earning some Fantasy attention for the two players.

Auto Draft

It was Brooks who fed King at the back post when he found the net but was adjudged to be offside and the Welshman was the man to get the Cherries’ deserved goal in the 88th minute.

Wilson sprung through on the right-hand side, squaring to a completely unmarked Brooks in a central location, who was left to provide a routine finish under virtually no pressure.

A minute later, Wilson almost got the equaliser as a loose ball squirted in his direction and he struck it wide on the turn.

With Southampton (home) and Everton (away), their final two matches of the season, and Premier League survival on the line, there could be worse punts to take a risk on than Bournemouth assets, especially considering the recent performances.

As we’ve already discussed, the Cherries probably could have, and should have, come away from the Etihad Stadium with a point, so with their win over Leicester and two goals at Old Trafford, there’s every chance they could get at least some attacking returns in the last two Gameweeks.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Mendy (Zinchenko 77′), Otamendi, Stones, Walker (Garcia 46′); Fernandinho, Gündogan (Rodri 68′), D Silva; Foden, Jesus (Mahrez 77′), B Silva (Sterling 46′).

Bournemouth XI (4-5-1): Ramsdale; Rico, L Kelly, S Cook, Stacey; J King (H Wilson 77′), Billing (Surridge 90′), Lerma, Gosling (L Cook 70′), Stanislas (Brooks 69′); Solanke (C Wilson 69′).

      Yesterday Wood played 90+ and JROd 50 minutes. Is this something for recosidering?

  4. Mac90

    2 months, 7 days ago

    I just checked my GW history,
    turns out my highest position
    was during
    GW26 where I was ranked 7065,
    and GW33+ was when I realized
    I was actually ranked 9749 overall,
    and I thought to myself:

    "So whenever FFS post something about the top 10k, they're actually talking about me" I mean you don't win anything, but I do feel a bit proud inside. Lol

    Just wanted to brag a bit. Out of top10k again

    For now..

    1. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      🙂
      Nice one. I never stayed in the top 10k for more than a week or two in 11 or 12 years so GL to you.
      I once hit the dizzy heights of 890 OR and followed it with 10 red arrows I was way out of my depth 🙂

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Same here. I went in and out of top 10k several times.

        Damn 890 brah. That's amazing.

        I still can't figure out why the overall
        leader and me has 200pts difference.
        Someone posted a website about fpl
        stats and I managed to score most of
        the times above average and still?

        Hmm.

        1. Albrightondknight

          Captaincy is huge.
          But it can’t be luck when some players do it year in year out. The amount of hits I take every season is too high. But never learn 🙂

          1. Mac90
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Same players consistently? Hmm I didn't know about that. Wonder if we can get tips from them. Sorry for being ignorant tho..

    2. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 5 Years

      Arr the good ole days of top 10k, I was in it for a couple of weeks in the first few weeks of the season and back at 7k exactly halfway through, now nowhere to be seen......

      Good going mate. I'm way off. I finished 968 a couple years ago and even then I was way off the top dogs. It's tough out there.

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        ayte thank you thank you. If I ever become champion I'll post again. Haha

        Congrats to you guys too! Good luck! Coz damn we do need a lot for this game do we. ARGH

      Its a nice place to be. Then you wants more....and more. To do so you have to get in early on good picks and drop bandwagons before they turn real bad. I finished 549 OR last year, now at 209 OR. Hope you get top 10k, and go for top 1k next year.

      1. Mac90

    The game week points leader spend 160 points on transfers!!!

    I just don't get it.

    1. Stupendous

        He's playing in a league that seems to start late. Maybe they compete in another way amongst themselves

        My fellow countrymen too

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      GW glory hog. Like those players who enter for one x GW just to try and win the round. Hence why the game has exploded to over 7 million players.

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      You have to change your mind a bit to come to the right conclusion?

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I changed my mind 20 30 times during wildcarld this gw. lolol.

    4. Eagleowl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      The prizes are awarded monthly in some money leagues and minus points are not reduced from monthly totals.

      I’m not sure if that’s the case with this guy but at least some are using it to win monthly prizes...

  6. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    What order to play these 3 players? Will play one of them and bench the other two. Already have Pope.

    1) Foden (wat)
    2) Bardsley (nor)
    3) Ritchie (bha)

    This week I put Taylor as my first sub for KDB instead of Ritchie... such a poor week

    1. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I think Foden will rest in FA cup and play Watford. He could haul big time, start him.

      1. Mac90
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Psst this guy is number 211, take his adviiice

  7. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Current team below
    Any better ideas other than
    Salah and Foden to
    Sterling and up to 8.2 mid for a hit?

    McCarthy

    TAA Holgate Doherty

    Salah KDB Foden Martial Bruno

    Jesus Ings

    Button Greenwood Aurier Lascelles

    1. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Rested Salah against Chelsea and you want to switch to Sterling who might get injured or play 70-120mins in FA Cup?

      Foden starts every 1 in 2 matches, you sure you wanna change?

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        This could total back fire but at 125K what have I got to lose.
        The reasoning is I see at 8-0 type result in one of City’s last 2 games and the 3 I want from City are Sterling KDB and Jesus.

        1. Mac90
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I can see that too.

          But Salah wants to win Golden Boot tho
          They are playing at home on the day they will lift the trophy
          Chelsea lost to West Ham in epl after their FA cp matches (West Ham had longer rest days)
          What if Chelsea play 120mins in FA? or will they? I dunno the rules. All the best

  8. Rover
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    A little complicated, but would you rather:

    A) Salah + VVD in GW37 and Salah + AWB in GW38

    B) Pulisic + Tark in GW37 and Kane + Tark in GW38

  9. spamking
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Who do you captain if you have both
      1) Bruno (WHU)
      2) Auba (AVL)

      1. Firminoooo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Both WHU and AVL are fighting for their life. But if I had to choose, Bruno.

    • HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Any must haves for gw37 or can I roll transfer and have 2 freebies for gw38 carnage?

      Pope (Button)
      AWB Boly Digne (Holgate Kiko)
      Salah Kdb Bruno Willian Dilva
      Rashford Jesus (Nketiah)

      Would lose Willian

      1. La Roja

      Hi all,

      Early thoughts? 2FT here..

      Martinez

      TAA Doherty Digne

      Mane KdB Bruno Willian

      Rashford Vardy Greenwood*

      3.9 Taylor* Guendouzi 3.9

      2FT & 0.0ITB

      Leading my ML by 13 points margin only (if Rashford and Vardy haul, then I could increase my lead)..

      Any ideas lads? He had Antonio, Jimmy, Mahrez, Pulisic..

      Should I match his picks to secure my ML?

      Your opinions are much appreciated..

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        probably look to move out Willian (I am)
        Kdb not enough coverage for the NOR game and plenty of options Mahrez Dilva
        Vardy to Jesus perhaps

    • Jars458
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      My free hit team of
      McCarthy
      Digne Doherty Alonso
      Salah D Silva (C) Foden Antonio
      Jesus Giroud Kane

      has got me a rank of 800 for the week and up 130K places overall to 128K. No Man United players potentially will bring me back to earth but not a bad result so far other than Salah.

          Cheers mate! I was thinking about the Mahre move actually! Would just leave me without a move for GW38 and big benching headache

          Down to this i think let me know your thoughts:

          37BB: AWB + Pulisic --> Tarkow + Martial (c) 38: KDB --> Sterling (c)

            • 7 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Would love Salah somehow but front 8 is so packed

          2. Hy liverpool
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            I like Tarkowski and martial options as i said but if KDB doesn't get any assist vs watford keep him as he will be going for henry's record in norwich game.

      2. Origi-nal
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Martial is made of glass and Man U have FA cup.

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          He won't start in FA cup, ighalo will start just like the norwich game

          1. Origi-nal
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Maybe. But it's Chelsea and not Norwich, and it's a game away from a shot at silverware.

            1. Scholes Out Forever
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              I think Ole will rotate to be honest. The players looked gassed against Southampton. Even Ole cant run the fab 5 to the ground like this.

              Both Chelsea and MAn U will rotate for FA cup and focus on top 4, imo

              1. Origi-nal
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 7 days ago

                Sure, but the reality is we don't know who starts nor can anyone guarantee if its 0-0 at 60 min Martial doesn't come on. I wouldn't be going with the C against WHU is all, but each to their own.

                Not Chelsea, you’ll see our best 11

                  And I mean best 11 thank god no kepa

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 7 days ago

                  Chelsea have a game vs liverpool on Wednesday at Anfield, surely top 4 is more important atm right?

                    Frank said he is going for it after Leicester; we’ll see. Man united may rotate tomorrow

      13 points from Four player , worst game week.

      1. Srv210
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        15 from 6...sterling(C) included..

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Despite a massive captain fail with Sterling 🙁 FH has so far largely been a success.

      49pts despite Sterling and Trent disappointing, with Bruno Ings and Egan to go, bumping me up to 14k for the first time this season!

      1. Srv210
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        i had a sterling(C)+TAA fail too but not so good score as you, Mahrez was also there

        1. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Ouch. Yeah Mahrez to DSilva, Aurier to Azpi and KDB to Pulisic were my main benefits. Hanging onto Mane too. Yet to see if Vardy to Jesus and Rashford to Ings pays off

      2. PLerix
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Similar here mate. Sterling (C) was a tragedy, but finally broke into top 1k with 4 to go.

    • Akshatjazz

      Wat changes can I do to this team for GW37+ with 2ft available & 4.1m itb

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        A quite easily imo. Not sure between Auba Kane tho

    • Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Schmeichel to pope for free? or Taylor to a defender under 4.8m?

      Schmeichel Martin
      Taa Doherty aurier TAYLOR NGAKIA

      1. Kabayan
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Taylor.. Just in case one of first three doesn't play

        1. Disturbed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          For Egan? Any other options? Thanks

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Where would you go from here at the moment? 1FT 1.1 ITB

      Pope (3.9)
      TAA Doherty Aurier (Lascelles** 3.9)
      Mane KDB Mahrez Bruno (Guendouzi)
      Rashford Vardy Greenwood*

      No playing subs if Lascelles out is a slight worry

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        See how Vardy performs .

        Yeh Lascelles to Tierney maybe if your worried about cover.

        1. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Could do yeah. Seems boring for end of season though.

          Would you get DSilva in for one of the other city boys? and yep will monitor Vardy v rashford v Ings (v kane/auba?)

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Don’t know if I’d replace one with another now.
            I got stung this week doing KDB > Sterling.

    • The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Which one for -4?

      A) Salah + Pulisic > Dilva + KDB

      B) Salah + Greenwood > Dilva + Jesus

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        A so long as Greenwood is fit

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Thanks

    • HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      If mancity wins a pen vs Norwich in gw38+ will KDB hand it over to Dilva for the sentiments in his farewell game for city?

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        That would be the romantic thing to do.
        Whether it happens is anyone’s guess.
        I may have both to cover that possum.

        1. HurriKane
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          yh. btw would you prefer dilva over mahrez for gw38?

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Both are good.

            I only have Sterling at the moment.
            Will definitely be bringing in Dilva and one of KDB or Jesus before 38.
            If I had 4 spots Mahrez would be the next.

    • Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      What to do with KDB Mahrez now that I have them back after FH? Hmmm

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        probably keep. both will get atleast 1 game and a 30 min cameo in another. Especially when one of them is norwich

        1. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Fair. Getting DSilva tempts though

    • The Red Devil
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Salah home game next, might go big, Sterling/mane to salah?

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        id keep.chasing golden boot, playing against his former club chelsea next gw who are suspect at the back and will always be up for it

        plus last game away vs an injury ridden newcastle defence screams goals

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Naah, I've got mane
          I'm suggesting I should do mane to salah

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        I'm looking to get Raz mate 😮
        Why sell him ?
        Hold ....

        1. The Red Devil
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Sell mane then? Think Salah could explode, last home game and all

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 7 days ago

            Mane is expendable

    • aapoman
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Oh my. 54 from 7 with triple United and Ings left to go. Easily my best gameweek this season so far when compared to average points.

      1. PLerix
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Thats great. Who did you captain?

        1. aapoman
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I captained Alonso. Quite happy how it turned out when compared to most people in my mini league who captained either Pulisic or Sterling

      2. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        That is amazing !

      3. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Great score
