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.

    Davies is a problem with Reguillon coming in, sure to drop in price when he loses his place. Davies > Digne worth a hit to try and get in on Everton's run of fixtures?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 6 Years

      Yes

    2. Steve The Spud

      Could be however saints look toothless and spurs bound to improve From last week - could see him getting something at st Mary’s - hole for me

      1. Steve The Spud

        Hold *

    3. Rolls-Royce

      I am looking at Coleman. Why is no one talking about him especially with no Sidibe this year? Castagna had joy down that WBA right flank.

      1. Ron_Swanson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        It’s taken Coleman 4 years to get 8 assists whereas Digne got 8 assists last season.

        1. Rolls-Royce
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          He's called Goalman for a reason.

    4. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't take hits after GW1 for a defender.

    5. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'd say hold a -4 right now.
      1 week data is too less to make any sort of logical decisions, IMO.

  2. Rolls-Royce
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Any Che Adams owners worried that he might not start vs Spurs?

    1. davies
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A little but would be very harsh. Can see Long starting for pressing reasons

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Surely Long would be in contention with back to back losses.

        1. davies
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Adams been arguably better than Ings so far this season too

          1. Rolls-Royce
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            No way Ings will be benched.

    2. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yeah, I’m also on Havertz and vinagre after making a transfer for Alli

      Look set for a wc this week unless Adams or Havertz turn up

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I am ready to take a hit or two. Looking at Adams-> Wilson.

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Thats good transfer, SOT are gash

    3. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Southampton are a big concern atm, very unconvincing performance against Crystal Palace followed up by a defeat to Brentford last night. Facing a Spurs team who will want to set their opening day defeat right. Adams could be easily benched but even if he starts I'm not sure he will get much change out of Spurs.

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah very fair point. Which striker would you look to bring @ 6.5m price bracket?

    4. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No. Che has earned his run of starts and is better than their other options. I'd be more concerned about ings as he played yesterday and he needs his rest

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He's already out of my team tbh.

  3. Tim2012

    G2G or any changes I should make?

    Pickford

    Nayland Lamptey Mitchell Brewster

    1. The 12th Man

      If not then just monitor ASM .

    TAA Dier Vinagre* Mitchell Ferguson*

    A) Vinagre > Saiss (-4)
    B) Play Mitchell (mun)*

    *Do A for a hit next week instead

    1. fpork
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      You don't hit defenders. And especially a defender who plays City...

      1. davies
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Agreed but needs to be done regardless and is obviously long term

      2. Duffy Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Defenders with attacking potential like TAA, Doherty, Digne etc would justify a hit occasionally, but wouldn't do so for Saiss before playing MCI, as you said.

  6. Duffy Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Sold Kane & Vassilev last night, bringing in Martial & DCL, in order to beat the latter's price rise.
    Would you change anything for gw2 (before any pressers change things) ?

    McCarthy
    TAA Tierney Egan Dier
    Salah Auba(C) ASM
    Martial(V) DCL Ings

    Steer Norwood Saiss Reed

      Nice

  7. Feedtheyak
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Anyone considering Doucoure?

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Would give him a little more time to see his role in that EVE side.

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yes, will keep an eye on his performance against Westbrom... May be in for ASM for me soon.

    3. matiakez
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      yes thinking about him as a Pereira replacement

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Is he good in the air ??
      I'm not sure about his open play attacking threat tbh.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Decent attacking returns in inferior Watford teams

    5. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      He is in my team as I plan to play versus weak teams. His position isn’t ideal for FPL but he will score goals so I’m rotating with a few other 5.5mids/ 5.0defs

  8. KGFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Who will be your captain this week?

    Martial for me

    1. Duffy Dunk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Auba C
      Martial V

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Aubemeyang at home to that Hammers defence all day long...

    3. Liberate HK - antichinazi
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Bruno

    4. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Auba against Frederik all day long.

  9. afsr
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Mccarthy
    TAA, Digne, Dallas
    Salah, Auba, Klich, Pereira
    Werner, DCL, Ings

    Nuland, Justin, Reed, Ferguson (4.0)
    0.0 ITB, 1FT

    A - Pereira, Ings -> Bamford, Rodriguez (-4)
    B - TAA, Pereira -> Van Dijk, Barnes (-4)
    C - Salah, Ings -> Fernandes, Martial (-4)
    D - Werner -> Martial
    E - save

    I'm seriously itching to remove TAA, he's eating up so much money, and there are plenty of cheap promising defs available.

  10. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Anyone who thinks Havertz could come good in GW2? Any chance he plays centrally?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      That's surely where he'll end up playing but I haven't a clue whether it wil be against Pool. Might depend on whether Ziyech is fit. I'm keeping at least until after GW3 when I'll review. Pulisic might be fit by then.

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Needs more time IMO. Looked out of his depth against Brighton

  11. jamesjoseph2770

    Any updates on ASM injury? Will he start this weekend?

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years

      What's this ASM injury news about then?

  12. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    A) Rich and Rash

    B) Martial and James

    1. afsr
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      B for now, but need to see how Man Utd attack lines up this season and specifically what role Rashford will have

    2. Joggers Nipple

  13. matiakez

    Best Vinagre replacement? Taylor? Ayling? Or someone else? Don't need to play them this week

    1. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Lamptey

  14. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Havertz,TAA to Fernandes,Shaw for a bit seems crazy right?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Not really

  15. Corkyote FFS CWC Champion 2…
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Where the hot topic predicting Bale’s starting price? 🙂

    9/9.5m midfielder do we reckon?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Maybe 10.

      1. Corkyote FFS CWC Champion 2…
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah I think 10m is absolute limit to make him an option for early adopters

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      9.5 or 10

    3. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      10.5

    4. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      As long as its Spurs he'll be overpriced

    5. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Considering it is Spurs and he hasn't played much last season, anything above 9.0 would be surprising.

    6. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      No reason for him to be more expensive than Son

  16. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Avoided rises last night - but seriously considering Werner > Martial today or two week move to,
    Werner > Wilson, Son > Bruno & ASM > Greenwood/ JR/ Grealish?

    Thoughts??

    McCarthy
    Trent, Egan, Robbo
    Auba C, Soucek, Son, ASM
    Vardy, Martial, Richarlison

    Steer, Mitchell, Reed, Burr

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        The problem isn’t Jose it’s the players!

          Good one! Watch him turn Bale into a left back

    For those thinking of ditching Southampton assets ahead of the Sun 12.00 game v Spurs remember .
    Spurs are away in Bulgaria tonight 5.00pm @ Lokomotiv Plovdiv taking a near full strength squad (one leg game) .
    Next week due to play @ Leyton Orient in the League Cup on Tues @ 6.00pm followed by another game on Thursday !
    Against either Botosani of Romania or Shkendija of North Macedonia if they win tonight .
    Surely most have some rest/rotation/injuries plus very little game prep time because of all the travel .

    1. Silecro
      • 2 Years

      Alli, Alderweireld and Aurier didn't travel to Bulgaria, safe start vs Southampton

        Alli only played 45mins but left at home spells an issue for me. Transfer related perhaps but glad I sold before his price drop

        I'm just reminding everyone of Spurs's brutal schedule some may not be aware of tonight's fixture.
        It's another chance to view Southampton before pulling the trigger (or not )

    Surprised not to see Lamptey in any WC teams. Looks one of the best options at 4.5 to me.

    1. Flair

      Potter can't manage a defense

      He's one of the best 4.5 options but I'd rather avoid that bracket altogether if I was WCing

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      fixtures are not kind

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Brighton have some good fixtures coming up with the odd difficult one mixed in. Lamptey would make an excellent rotating 4.5 in my eyes.

    D’oh!
    I didn’t know what the free hit was. I thought it meant one extra free transfer so I played it to get rid of Alli when I’d already used my ft. Now I find it’s actually a kind of temporary wildcard...so Alli will be back *face-palm*
    So might as well go all out for this week. How’s this?

    Schmeichel
    Gabriel - Reece James - Justin
    William - Auba - Rodriguez - Fernandes
    Vardy - Watkins - Martial

    No MC I know, but thought there were big names with easier games this week.

    1. Easy Cheesy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      That’s unfortunate but it is a decent team so hopefully you get some points.
      I think if I was attacking this week I’d add a leeds player (bamford/ ayling) vs ful, and maybe newcastle/ everton.
      So dcl/ bamford/ wilson
      If you downgrade vardy maybe you can go from gabriel to tierney to attack further

        Thanks, good ideas!

      Oh dear - as you say, make the best of it! I wouldn't have Reece for this week. Personally I'd go for an Everton forward (Rich?) and defender (Digne/Keane) rather than "Hamez", but funds might preclude that. How about Greenwood?

      1. fatboy_jim
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Good call on Everton.
        Worth having Greenwood and Fernandes? Or just one?
        Thanks.

      You’ve been here for 9 years, a paying member & you didn’t realise what the Free Hit consisted of? That’s bloody unlucky pal!
      I personally think Vardy May struggle against Burnley, rare you see them concede 2+ in a game. I’d rather shift those funds to a City player. Sheffield UTD had plenty of opportunities against Wolves to score & you’d think City would have buried plenty of those chances. If Ageuros deemed fit that could be a great 1 week punt or Sterling otherwise?

      1. fatboy_jim
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        I’ve had quite a few years off from FPL, there was no free hit last time I played.
        I’ll keep an eye on Aguero. I wondered about shifting some funds around to do Willian to KDB?

        1. BoleynWin
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Thought that may be the case, I wasn’t being sarcastic was genuinely thinking that’s bad luck.
          KDB is the obvious go to City option but I like to go for slightly differential picks for a one week punt, chase the highest ceiling. Sterling/Aguero for me because of that.
          Equally I think Richarlison has a higher ceiling than J.Rod, was unlucky not to have a brace last game.

          You’ve just got to roll with your gut on those 50:50 calls, fingers crossed it pays off pal.

    Will martial out score Adams by 4 points?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Maybe this week but surely look long term? Thats a massive improvement

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      If not this week then almost certainly by next

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Even if he doesn't do it immediately, he'll recover the hit in a matter of a few GWs. I'd go for it.

    4. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Should be a 50pts+ difference over the season, barring injuries though.

  25. Easy Cheesy

    This SOU v tot game is going to be interesting. Which ever team loses is going to be facing mass exodus from an FPL perspective.
    Kane/ dier/ mccarthy/ kwp owner

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Absolutely right. My exodus started this week with Alli.

  26. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Play:

    A) James (LIV)
    B) Saiss (MCI)

    1. Chandler Bing

      B

    2. KINGS

      A of coz

    3. Disturbed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    4. Skloppy Kops

      B

  27. HVT

    Is McCarthy still the best 4.5 keeper?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Martinez for my money

    2. KINGS
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Him or Ryan

  28. Kyle2210

    I have decided to WC what do you guys think of this team for GW2?

    Mccarthy
    Van Dijk, Shaw, Lascelles, Justin (Mitchell)
    J Rod, Auba, Bruno (Bissouma, ASM)
    Jiminez, Werner, Martial

    1. KINGS
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A punt against Kop

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't have Justin or Mitchell on a WC. I'd probably have a punt on Podence for your 5.5, if only for their fixtures from GW3.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        How many more games does Justin have left?

        Agreed on Mitchell who will be gone once PVA returns, I’m on Ferguson who should be back soon and more likely to be first choice

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yep - agree on Ferguson and I'd only want a CP defender from GW5. He's my 5th defender too. As for Justin, I just hate factoring in another transfer after a WC when there are always going to be bigger fires to put out later down the line. Having said that, I had Justin from GW1! -

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Ideally Justin would play in GW4&5 but I cannot be sure.

    No love for Traoré vs. his favourite old manager, doesn't even make the captaincy poll?

    1. Skloppy Kops
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Traoré? Even if I owned him, i'd leave him on the bench, let alone capping.
      He's being overrated after a few runs and dribbles.
      Not saying he is a bad player, but still a lot to improve in his game.

    McCarthy
    TAA, Doherty, Justin
