Manchester clubs return in Sky Sports Fantasy Football as City face Monday fixture

Another Gameweek in Sky Sports Fantasy Football is upon us and all eyes are on the two Manchester clubs, who play their first Premier League games of the campaign.

But it is worth recruiting the services of any of their players?

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m) is the most expensive midfield asset in the game and rather fittingly accrued more points than any other player in Sky last season.

Bruno Fernandes comes in at £10.9m and was in the points himself after signing for Manchester United, tallying 129 from his debut onwards (more than any other player from that point up until the end of the term).

Their percentage selections emphasise the above points, currently standing at 45.5% and 30.6% respectively. De Bruyne’s ownership is most probably higher due to the fact that Manchester City play their first game on Monday night against Wolves, with the only other fixture of choice that day being Aston Villa against Sheffield United.

This creates the perfect captaincy choice for this game day, and fear not if you do not currently have the Belgian in your side.

 1

One of the quirks of Sky Sports Fantasy Football is the fact that you can allow players to play on a particular day and rack up their points, before transferring them out for another player to perform the following day, allowing managers to maximise their points potential.

De Bruyne does provide the better option of the two, but even the likes of Marcus Rashford (£10.5m) or Antony Martial (£10.0m) could be tempting considering United’s first three fixtures before you are allowed to make unlimited changes in the Overhaul: Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Brighton.

Bringing one of these stars in does come at a cost. You must budget accordingly and it does mean that you may eat into your first of 40 transfers, which will remain at that number until the end of the campaign.

The Overhaul comes into play after Gameweek 4, so there is no need to panic or rush with your transfers just yet. In a short time, you can utilise as many as you like.

On the Lookout?

As you well know, it would be pretty impossible to fill your Sky Sports Fantasy Football XI with players from both Manchester City and Manchester United, but at least there are options emerging on the radar elsewhere.

Marcal – £6.3m

Marcal got off to a perfect start in a Wolves shirt, contributing to his side’s clean sheet in their 2-0 away victory at Sheffield United. As mentioned previously, you do not have to make any changes before the Overhaul, but the left-back does provide a decent captaincy option for the game on Monday night.

After the clash against Manchester City, Wolves face four winnable fixtures in West Ham, Fulham, Leeds and Newcastle, either side of the Overhaul period, proving a potential cheap pick at just £6.3m for both short and long-term planning. His price is by far the cheapest from any of the Wolves’ backline.

Jack Grealish – £8.5m

It has been quite the week for Jack Grealish. From earning his first England cap to signing a new five-year contract and scoring against Burton in the same day, Grealish was a surprise announcement to most Villa fans.

What this does give the capacity for him to do is really kick on, perfect for Fantasy Football managers. He will begin his Premier League season against Sheffield United, also on Monday evening, which could mean another captaincy choice may be needed to make.

Grealish scored on eight occasions and created six more goals for Aston Villa last season, which was invaluable to his side maintaining their Premier League status. Their fixtures are generous, particularly post-Overhaul, facing off against Leeds, Southampton, Arsenal, Brighton, West Ham and Newcastle.

Points could begin to flow in abundance for the Villa skipper.

    who is more likely to keep a clean sheet in the Villa - Sheffield United game at Villa Park?

    choosing between Steer and Ramsdale in GK

    1. jam sandwich
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      skybet has both at 100/30 for what its worth

    2. Neo-Viper
      • 5 Years

      Steer in goal for this week

    3. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Depends if Villa turn on the goal line technology or not.

      I think it's tight in reality. Could be a 0-0.

    4. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Hard to call that one, but I don't expect Steer to start, so the decision might be made for you.

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thoughts on Matt Targett this season?

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Good option from GW6, Konsa too.

        2. Pariße
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          An okay pick, but I’d always look at defenders from better clubs, Villa will definitely be in the bottom part of the league in defensive stats.

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Maybe, but its not definite is it, we had one of the best during the restart.

            1. Pariße
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Fair, there’s always at least one team that surprises, might as well be Villa since they can just build on their form from last year. Martinez will surely help them too.

    5. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Sheffield United looks out of fumes but im not afraid of current Villa. Only Watkins should score but that will keep him close. I think it's SHU for the cs

  2. Neo-Viper
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Alli out for who?

    1. Zim0
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Anyone at all

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        more specific?

        1. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I don't like anyone less than 8m sorry. Could go Foden or JamRod. Maybe Grealish.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Van de Beek could be a good punt. Not sure on his position in the team though

          2. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Harrison if you're feeling especially risky. Looked good against Liverpool and up against Fulham next

            1. Neo-Viper
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Thinking Hames but Van de Beek is interesting too. Cheers mate.

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Rashford

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        . 5 m short of this transfer.
        and Mitro to Brewster shall do the trick but for a hit.

        any suggestions?

        1. Pariße
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Nah man, Brewster for a hit sounds terrible

          1. Neo-Viper
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            That's what I thought too.

    3. Ramsays Raw Steak
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      James

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        have DCL. reckon double up?

        1. Pariße
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yes

          1. Neo-Viper
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Leaning thick and fast but Southampton got beat today makes me hold that transfer.

    4. jam sandwich
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      just pulled trigger on Alli to James/J "Hamez" Rodriguez

      no regrets

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        see above.

    5. Prison Mike
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I think he could punish sellers this week against a Southampton team who just lost 2-0 to Brentford, but James or a United mid if you definitely selling

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        https://mol.im/a/8740091

        any truth of this?

        1. Prison Mike
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          No Mourinho has already shut them rumours down and said Dele is part of his plans for this season

          1. Neo-Viper
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            why isn't he on that plane to Bulgaria then?
            Removed him for the first game for tactical reasons and now this.

            I am losing patience.

            1. Tempestic
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Theres plenty of first teamers who havent gone to Bulgaria

            2. Prison Mike
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              8 others were left at home too including Toby... I think he starts against Southampton.

    6. asquishypotato
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Even for a hit?

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        If for them popular Manchester Assets, the defo for a hit. Crazy?

        1. asquishypotato
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Not crazy, but I coincidentally asked about James Rodriguez - it seems like a move that looks good on paper but may not work.

    7. Zladan
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Why would you sell?

      1. Neo-Viper
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Hold you think? why?

  3. Ramsays Raw Steak
    • 3 Years

    Got any special sauce recipe for burgers?

    1. jam sandwich
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      ketchup, mayo, splash of vinegar and a little bit of sriracha

      1. Pariße
        • 5 Years

    Damn Alli price dropping tonight extremely high now... Gonna have to move before price changes or lose 0.1m!!!

    1. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’d get rid now, who are you looking at getting?

      1. Ramsays Raw Steak
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        James

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Keep coming back to Hamez, really like the look of Everton team this season..

  6. asquishypotato
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    I know sits only one weeks worth of data, but I’m considering Rodriguez in for Ali for -4.

    With Ali left at home on the naughty step, and the contrasting performances, plus Everton playing Albion, I think it could pay off both in value and points. Or is this mad thinking?

    1. Kloppcorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Go for it your reasoning sounds very solid

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      It is the template move

      1. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Sounds like template could work for me.

    3. Prison Mike
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I don’t think it’s a naughty step, 8 others were left at home too including Toby... I think he starts against Southampton.

      It’s risky taking a -4 as he could get something against a poor looking Southampton side who gave up a lot of chances against palace and just lost 2-0 to Brentford.

      1. asquishypotato
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Yeh, it’s one of those that may work or may not - Southampton have a Jekyll and Hyde nature so we don’t know which turns up.

      2. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Lo Celso back as well tho, will he keep his place? If u can count a 45 min cameo as that acc being his place to lose..

          My FPL team is very set. I know what I'm doing. It's all lined up. But FanTeam with 6 drafts is really tough. They each have to be managed slightly differently.

          1. Rinseboy
            • 8 Years

            oh wow! Good luck. I struggle just with FPL and 1 team

    3. Old Gregg

      Yes. Could also consider Wilian for a 1 week punt.

          Before then rash had 7 in the prem

          pretty much nailed on with var and players running into the box

      So these comments mean Bruno is essential?

        Just trying to work this out.
        United do seem to get more than other teams. Probably down to the speed of attackers running at defenders then brushing against a defender on the way past.

          The new handball law probably will add more in general looking at that Liverpool first one

    Can't decide on Bruno v Rashford 🙁

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Pens 🙂

    1. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Bruno Pen Fernandes is essential

    2. Hospital Pass
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      See above penalty discussion, I suspect. Half of Rashford's goals last seasons were pens.

      1. Zim0

        6 of the 17 were yes

    Which one
    Mahrez +3
    Or
    Stirling
    Got KDB already

    Serious question: transfer Salah out to Bruno??

    1. Seanigula

      Didn’t LIV put 5 past Chelsea a few months ago?

  22. tom66

    Which 3 to have out of KDB / Bruno / Salah / Auba? Thanks

    Keep Son or ship for J Rod? Or ship Ings for someone else? No money in the bank.

    1. golfboy

      Same dilemma here. Tempted by Ings to DCL

      1. mr messi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I could do Ings to DCL and Son to Bruno for a hit?

    2. F_Ivanovic

      keep and re-assess next week.

    Ivanovich only 4.5m. Oh wow.

        Bit harsh. He’s only a year older than Thiago Silva.

      He better keep Rodríguez away and then he has an even more special place in my heart

    Stuck to my strategy. Scored well GW1 but WC this week. Happy to jump on several players early, especially United / City.

  26. Neo-Viper

    Alli to Hames for Everton Doubleup with DCL

    Or

    Alli Mitro to Rashford and Brewster for a hit.

    1. Pulp Minion
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I've exactly the same issue.
      I'm not gone on taking hits this early.

      I'm looking to get Fernandes in a week or 2 so I'm thinking of going with first one

  27. Tsparkes10

    Ings blanks again and Southampton beat tonight.... Tempted to get rid

    1. El Presidente

      hold

  28. phily4321
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 month, 9 days ago

    Do I have enough in this team to be able to afford holding for another week?

    I have concerns over havertz, alli, Adams and I really want martial.

    alli and havertz have great fixtures but without losing either I can't get martial

    Mccarthy,
    Taa, doc, lascelles, KWP
    Salah, auba, havertz, alli
    Werner, Adams

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Holding is only 4.5m. I think you can afford to.

  29. Jimbo-Jones

    Was always planning on rolling unless something urgent came up. G2G? 0itb.

    Steer
    TAA Doherty Justin
    Auba Salah Bruno ASM Soucek
    Werner Mitro

    McCarthy KWP Mitchell Brewster

  30. Twisted Saltergater

    Werner or Martial?

    1. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I was looking at this question too. The answer right now is martial but the answer next week will be Aguero

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Werner looks a better striker than Martial from what I’ve seen. In FPL, that 0.5m can come in very handy though.

        Neither on pens. Martial with a better supporting cast (at the minute).

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 9 days ago

        Kun could be tasty. He's out of reach of most. Waiting on week 4 here.

        Suspect he may have a run out only in short term and I'm thinking Leeds City could be historic goal fest. Be fascinating how Pep approaches it

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Jimenez. Or was the question which one to sell to get him in?

      Fixtures all point one way in the short to medium term. The only reason not to in my book is immediate fixture - historically good for him - and if you regard Martial to Werner as captain options

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        He was incredible in the first 30 mins vs Sheff Utd. Unplayable. They took turns kicking massive lumps out of him after that.

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Werner maybe on pens.
      Jorginho will be replaced by Kovacic who was suspended.
      Willian was our 2nd penalty taker.
      With those two off the pitch Werner seems the obvious choice.

      Nothing official. Barkley had taken them, but after taking one off Jorginho when he was on the pitch & missing, I don't see him taking them again. Just my opinion obviously but I expect Werner to take them off Jorginho isn't on the pitch.
