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.

    You know what - if I was just a casual playing, didn’t come on here or overthink, I’d see:

    Hames played great, big threat. Good fixture run, gives me an extra 0.5
    Alli hauled off at HT, potential rift with Mou, Spurs looking pretty woeful, and probs less nailed

    Kinda puts it in a better light then ifs buts and maybes, even with the hit involved?

      Casual by definition don’t spend long thinking about the game and get bad ranks.

      So if you want to think like a casual and get bad ranks then carry on

            It's amazing isn't it. Linking your team should be a requirement to be on the forum IMO

        Why are you against the move? Saw your comment on the last page too. Was anything I said wrong?

        And yes obviously most casuals will rank pretty low, but you’re missing the point a bit, or maybe I was unclear. In seasons past I like I’m sure many others on here have, have gotten too caught up in second guessing and overthinking moves to the point where I seem to always go the wrong way in a 50/50. Sometimes better to just look at the facts laid out and make a choice quicker

          Just make the move

        2. TheDragon

          1 month, 2 days ago

          I just personally think it’s extremely knee jerk

          Spurs have great fixtures and are playing Southampton next who don’t appear good defensively.

          Games has played 1 game is an unknown quantity in the Premier League and as an FPL asset

          Add a -4 into the mix and I can’t see the reward worth the risk

          But that’s just me. You do what you think is best as it’s your team

            You’re right - and it could fail to payoff this week even disregarding the hit.

            But long term I see Hames being more nailed at the very least. Lo Celso a big threat to Alli

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Seems a no brainer to me tbh

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 2 days ago

      Exactly. Lots of tendency to overthink and get too fancy.

      I'm one of the most guilty of it. But for all my posturing, in the end, I think when it comes to making a decision for my team, I can separate the wheat from the chaff.

      This transfer looks extremely good on paper. I'm not worried about it failing.

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

        Yeah. Even if it backfires this week, surely barring injury Hames looks good to be more nailed and then probably outscore Alli in the long run.

        We can hope!

      Leeds played great and Bamford scored. Good fixture run and gives me an extra 3m ITB. Ings blanked against Palace and Saints are in disarray

      So Ings ->. Bamford -4?

      There has only been 1 gameweek!

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Sorry but bamford is the epitome of casual move cant believe i backed u up there

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          He's clearly being sarcastic

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

          Oh nightcrawler

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

        Idiotic and not really the same. Ings 22 goals last year, bit of a blip at the start though I’ll likely sell him soon too, but to get a Manc player.

        Meanwhile Leeds get 3G from an xG of something like 0.3 and a few LIV mistakes. Bamford scores - good for the lad, who normally couldn’t hit a barn door.

        Alli been off it for a while, I just took a gamble on them picking it up this season, seems to be wrong. Meanwhile Hames is a quality player, better imo despite also having a few years totting about, and is now more nailed and playing in an improving team under possibly his favourite coach - and an attacking coach at that, compared to Jose.

        If you’re gonna chat sh!t, you’ll have to do better than that.

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          You are missing the point entirely

          It’s your team - if you want to do Alli -> Hames -4 go for it!

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

            I know - I wouldn’t do it or not do it because others want me to or don’t. I just was looking to gather feedback based on the points of reasoning I had.

            Which point exactly am I missing? Pretty sure I just dismantled any likeness you tried to place between Alli to JRod and Ings to Bamford lol (and I know that was just a hypothetical, but it’s the one you used)

            Had you used Ings to Wilson for example, that’d be more compelling. Both decently proven FPL quantities, one’s team has started better. But still probably too soon to call definitely. It’s what you do with the saved money as well. For me it could help bring in a Manc

            1. TheDragon
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Hames isn’t a proven FPL quantity just like Bamford

              Leeds have started better than Southampton just like Everton have started better than Spurs.

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

                Yes alright he’s not “Prem proven” but he’s at least 3x the player Bamford is lol.

                Do you think Bamford outscores Ings over the season? I’d say good chance Hames outscores Alli in all honesty

                Lmao cheers lad.

                Any input on the matter or you steering clear? 😆 constructive criticism always welcome, clear pisstaking not quite as much

    5. Alexis Nonsense
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I think it's a sweet spot here

      Overthinking has led me to bad ranks before, and casuals do tend to go for a lot of right choices but in the end lack differentials and often go for in form players

      I think spending som time with stats and eye test and then go for the "objectively" right choice is best and season this with the occational punt etc.

      Alli --> James/Podence whoever seem good atm with Spurs not looking good since long before Poch left

      I also think that taking hits in the early stages is the better hits to take as both value and points will be rewarded

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

        Good input mate, cheers. I agree re early hits - while it’s more out of your total points at this stage, you also have more time to let it pay off, or to rectify it

    6. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      You are right, casuals will think Hamez is a good pick

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Casuals also thought Alli was a good pick 🙂

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Makes sense Alli->Hamez is such a popular move

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

          Think Alli was people thinking they were too clever - I’ll take that one on the chin lol.

          1. Alexis Nonsense
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Fair, my point was that not much separate casuals from the others at this stage

            A lot of so called pro's used preseason as a guide, even though we all know that preseason doesn't matter...(e.g. Salahs form etc.)

            A lot of pros had Spurs defence and a mid, and we all knew who is their manager and that they have been poor for years now

            So even if Alli-->James is a move a lot of casuals do, It's not by default a bad one 🙂

    I’ve gone from optimistic to worried about saints assets very quickly. Two shocking performances.

    Still time to come good, but heavy early season investment is only a game or two away from disaster

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        A could pay off though tbh. Just don't rate Rash personally.

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

    Robbo, Alli > Digne, Rashford (-4)
    Is it worth it? If Alli drops in price I wont have the cash. Instead I will have to take out Taa but then I don’t need to take a hit.
    That might be better?

    1. MidTableFantasy
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Good moves especially if you have TAA

      1. Jones Kusi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        But is it tho? Feels kinda kneejerky. We dont really know Uniteds form and Digne just had 1 good gw.

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

      Considering the same but probably just Alli -> James for me

  10. mrelpea
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Who do you see as the ‘pick now and keep all season’ premium mid out of auba and Salah?

    Currently have

    Ryan
    KWP Coady TAA Taylor Mitchell
    Auba KDB Fernandes Soucek Bissouma
    Werner Ings Davis

    I swapped in Salah for KDB for GW2, as I had planned, as soon as transfers were ope as wanted to avoid any price hikes. So had no idea how either had played, did it on blind faith and cold planning

    This was always the plan but now having regrets about not swapping auba for KDB. Suppose the West Ham game in GW2 was playing on my mind. Aaaanyways, who’s the keeper, Auba or Salah?

      Salah

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Salah for me, zero doubt

      Cheers guys. I knew my initial gut feel was right and that west ham match in gw2 blinded me. Hopefully doesn’t increase in price and I’ll correct my mistake in gw3. Bit of a shambles to use a transfer like that but will be worth it in the long run. Goes to show you should go with your gut!

    Should i get Soucek Harrison or Doucoure, my mini league rival has Soucek??

      I like the look of Doucoure.

        I'm making funds for Martial, so im dropping Alli to one of these, already have saint max

  15. cjk17

    My 3 options. What do we think?

    a) Havertz to Bruno
    b) Havertz and Mitrovic > Rashford and Calvert Lewin (-4)
    c) Havertz and Mitrovic > James Rodriguez and Martial (-4)

    Is Mitro still first choice?

    Seems strange that he plays 90 tonight despite not playing in the Playoff final or in GW1.

    Maybe he’s not in Parker’s plans?

    Is taking a hit for Adams > DCL not worth it?

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year

      Honestly I think its worth it but Hits arent something you recommend, do with that what you will

    McCarthy wasn’t a transfer I was hoping to start planning but this is woeful. And yes, Brentford are no push overs but neither are Spurs, Burnley and so on.

    1. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      For me it was Kasper or a 4.5.And McCarthy was/is the best pick.

      But maybe just cap Auba and save FT

    You know what? For the past 2 seasons I've been guilty of ignoring my gut instinct in favour of 'playing it professionally' and it just isn't as fun. Ings to Martial it is!

      Agreed

    Saints, Brighton or Villa keeper?

      Uwot

    2. Miguel Sanchez

      Martinez

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Also struggling to choose.

      Soton have absolutely lost the plot. Brighton fixtures look very bad. Villa looks the best long-term but it's Villa.

    This is Everton's first and second XIs?

    Pickford
    Coleman Mina Keane Digne
    Allan Doucoure
    Rodriguez Gomes Richarlison
    DCL

    Virginia
    Kenny Holgate Branthwaite Nkounkou
    Gbamin Delph
    Iwobi Davies Gordon
    Kean

    Get rid of Siggy, Walcott, Tosun, Bernard, Ramirez, Bolasie

    1. CrouchDown
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      That’s an expensive “get rid of” list

    2. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      That's pretty accurate I imagine. Holgate might be one of the first choice CBs when fully fit. Maybe Sight ahead of Davies if looking for a num 10

    3. Alexis Nonsense
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Wasn't Bolasie a pretty good player at..can't remember where but he was decent

  27. Coys96
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Let Kean take!

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years

      Hope he scores!!

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years

        Yep 🙂

        Felt a bit sorry for him last season,, hope he does well this season!

  28. CrouchDown
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Why is Saiss a better option than Marcal?

    Is he not playing in Doherty’s position?

    1. Thescaff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Baps & goal threat

      1. CrouchDown
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Does Marcal not have goal threat from RWB though?

        1. Thescaff
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 2 days ago

          This isn't the game for you

          1. CrouchDown
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            I didn’t see the game so I was asking the question of where he played.

            Don’t think it’s your place to say who can/can’t play this game. Cheers lad.

        2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          He is not in Dohertys position, he is LWB/LCB

        3. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          If you watched the game, no. Saiss was basically doing the wb role when wolves attacked while Marcal stayed back

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      More goal threat, and Marcal was quite reserved getting forward the other night. Hardly touched the ball in the final third, which I reckon was tactical.

      He plays as a wing-back like Doherty, but on the other side, in place of Jonny who is injured.

      1. CrouchDown
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Ah okay great, appreciate that!

    Anthony Gordon has had a really good game tonight.

    1. Wild Rover

      Too early for him I think, especially with new signings

      1. The 12th Man

        Not an option unless theres injuries.

      Yeah, I like him a lot, less opportunities for him to start if they continue with a 4-3-3 tho.
