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.

    Wanted Sterling + Martial but the two guys on picture look very serious,hope for 10+ penalties each

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Going Rashford and Sterling here

    2. mrelpea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Hoping for a penalty fest too! Have both in for that same reason

  2. fcsaltyballs

    1. Alli >> Greenwood
    2. Havertz >> Greenwood
    3. Alli >> JamesRod
    4. Havertz >> JamesRod
    5. Save

    Thanks All

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

      3 but only if it’s for a -4 😉

      I wouldn’t ship Havertz personally as think he will come good and GW onwards Chelsea have nice fixtures

      1, 3 and 5 all have their merits

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Haha cheers, I saw the bants on the last page... not getting involved 😐

        If the news is true the Alli is probably the wiser move

      2. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Lol.

        Agree re Havertz. I’d say 3 or 5, depending on how much you believe in Spurs/Alli v JRod/EVE.

        2FT could be very nice next week

    2. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      If Greenwood is definitely first-choice over Daniel James then I would expect him to get more points than Hames.

    Brain tells me Ings to Martial, gut tells me Ings to DCL...

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Always go with your gut

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years

      What’s your IQ?

    3. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years

      Heard your gut is bigger than your brain 😉

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

      Have you got any other Man U assets? If yeah,go for DCL, if not, then Martial is the way forward

      1. Kante Touch This
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Nope, he'd be my first. Its more the everton fixtures over anything else!

        Going for DCL would leave me with 2m ITB, to either upgrade a 4.5 attacker or Havertz to Fernandes

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          What are you waiting for! I’d do the Havertz move too.

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

            Yep. Havertz will come good but not sure he’ll hit the ground running like Fernandes

        2. mrelpea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          If you have the option of Haverz to Bruno with the extra 2m itb, DCL is a no brainer, go for it! Fernandes is my United pick too

  4. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Anyone going for english iniesta? Decent immediate fixtures

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

      I’m going with the Scottish Salah

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Who? Fraser?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Scottish Messi he is!

    2. Scrumper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Done - was my replacement for Dele.

      I thought why not replace one bad punt with another?

      At least this one frees up £1.5m to improve elsewhere!

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I'm going for the Egyptian Josh King

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

        Any interest in the Brazilian Berbatov?

    4. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      You’ve lost me

    5. stat sifter 888888

      His nickname is the Stockport Iniesta.

  5. RedAlpha10

    Thoughts on Harrison??

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Prefer McCarthy

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Crystal Palace McCarthy?

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yeah, I like him, just be aware he'll miss GW4.

      1. RedAlpha10
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Why will he miss GW4?

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          He's on loan from City, who they play.

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years

          Against parent club city

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

          Podence has FUL hm so maybe a 1 week punt

    3. Rushford
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I got him in, looked extremely lively against Pool

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Seems like one of the best 5.5 options to me

        The one that wrote that "Obladi oblada" bullshit

  6. Schliegs
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Does that M.Kean pen confirm Digne is not on pens?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No, but what made you think Digne would be on penalties anyway?

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Not really

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Just giving the striker some confidence.

  7. Rushford
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Just realized my whole attack plays against my whole defense this GW. Ings - Davies
    Werner -TAA
    Mitro - Ayling

    More disappointing scores incoming

    1. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Ayling should get a cs, but mitro won't score.
      Taa always possible of attacking returns, that why we spend 7.5 on him. You'll be alright

  8. Tmel
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    1) Alli > Rashford
    2) Alli & Adams > Podence & Martial (-4)
    3) Alli & Adams > Trossard & Martial (-4)
    4) Alli & Adams > Bruno & Brewster (-4)

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      3, Im doing the same, except Harrison instead of Trossard

    2. The Senate
      • 2 Years

      2 IMO

  9. Soto Ayam

    Between kdb or sterling, which player performs better at home?

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      KDB tends to perform better at home

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      KDB home, Sterling away

    3. Soto Ayam

      Cheers all

  10. THE WERNER DELUSION

    James Rodriguez on pens confirmed

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think it's between him and Rich.

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Only one penalty over the whole of last season.

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Unless Lampard says Pulisic is fit, James will be my transfer in this week I think.

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

        James or Hames ?

        1. avfc82

    3. Warby84

      1. Zim0
        • 2 Years

        Im on salah. Kepa will make us proud

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Martial, Salah or Bruno

  12. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is not Heaton #1 of AV? And he is back in October. So will Emi be a bench player again?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Am pretty sure he will have has assurances he is first choice. Heaton not as good as he once was

      1. Lucky Z
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Also think so. But harsh for Heaton

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I mean Heaton is 34 now. Also quite injury prone.

          1. Lucky Z
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Fair comment

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Don't think Martinez is going there to be second choice

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Martinez will be our no1.

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        He’s my no1 now...

      2. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        But will Martinez start this GW? Or can I at least expect Steer to fill in if he doesn't? On WC and want to make sure I don't end up with 0 GK points.

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          It's not certain, but I see Martinez starting. He'll have had a few days training with the squad, and we don't play till Monday.

          Re Steer or Nyland, it's all a bit up in the air.

          Nyland started Project Restart, and was then dropped. Steer started our friendly against Man Utd last Saturday, but Nyland got the nod against Burton. Who knows.

          1. Chandler Bing
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Fair. Tho I did notice that the full backline bar Mings was second choice against Burton. Think I'll take the risk.

            1. Tempestic
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Just start with Martinez and Steer if ur on WC

            2. avfc82
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              If I had to pick, I'd say Steer is now ahead of Nyland, but I'm not that confident.

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

    4. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Emi will be first choice.

  13. Mirakuru FC

    Thoughts on Hendrick, I need to get rid of Saka, anyone else in mind?

    Soton on full team defeated by Brentford

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Not surprised. Championship and premier league very similar now. Brentford would probably finish top half in pl

      1. il Brutto
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Norwich can attest to that.

      2. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Brentford would not finish in the top half of the PL lol.

  15. Hakim Ziyech

    Best differential captain this gw?

    1. Miguel Sanchez

      1. The 12th Man

        Yeah!

    I am seeing almost many here going for James Rodriguez , but why not Zaha ?

    He is even on Pens also ... on top on that his next 3 fixtures looks like BTTS games.

    1. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Zaha will score 2 more goals in September and the next one will be after Christmas

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Also a very good option tbf. Is he on pens though? Mili no longer an option?

      He did have a great preseason but can be a bit streaky. Will monitor for sure though, especially before that green run

      Zaha tons better pick than Hamez but casuals remember that WC goal

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I just cant see this Hamez craze at all ...

        Chances created outside of box and 1 shot in box , that's it xD

        Dont see any appeal in that ... ( Unless he is on pens )

        1. BigRedRom
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          He’ll prob be on pens and has excellent record under Ancelotti for goals and assists in two previous spells under him

    5. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Milovojevic on pens no?

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

      No service for Zaha, he had to make that goal himself

      Maybe Eze will help?

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

        Zaha should actually get an assist + goal in fpl for that one

  18. Drip Doctor
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I think my Dele Alli replacement will be Doucoure. Keep funds in the bank to analyse Aguero, Bruno etc...

    Great run of fixtures, 4 chances created vs Spurs.

    1. RedAlpha10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Im also debating between Doucoure and Harrison, your thoughts??

      1. Drip Doctor
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I don't really know anything about Harrison. With Doucoure, i know he's a top player and will pick up goals here and there, especially if he's in a midfield with Allan and Gomes, he should be the one to break free.

        1. stat sifter 888888
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Really like Doucoure as a player but will get virtually no points other than starting. Harrison, ASM, even Wijnaldum on that logic are better picks. Gomes also complicates things in there a bit too much.

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Doucoure didn't look as attacking as he was at Watford. Think he's a huge punt at this stage

      1. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Away to Spurs though. See where he plays this weekend.

  19. Joey Barton and Friends

    1 month, 5 days ago

    Think a GW 3 might be a good play this year. Never used it early before. With that in mind looking at Harvertz & Ings to Martial and Rodriguez this week.

      Can’t see a thing - hope Chelsea come good I suppose and the hauling Liverpool mids are the ones playing at fullback.

      Move Alli on? Quite like Grealish myself - partly gut

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Thanks mate

        Yes Alli seems like the one to move in, perhaps to James Rodriguez

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I've got a frighteningly similar look just with Kane and much less balance. Did ok last week simply by captaining Vardy.

          Think it's worth riding out this week anyway. Vardy to the rescue perhaps? Doesn't feel like a great week anyway for template set up. Chelsea and Werner might be ready by week 3.

          Rodriguez appears to be the one but I'm not really convinced he's FPL - just makes Everton better.

          It's a hit and sacrifices Liverpool defence but Robbo and Alli to Justin and Bruno would get you more I suspect that Rodriguez. TAA out would get you Saiss and Bruno

          1. fcsaltyballs
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Food for thought...

            Well this is actually my 'alternative' team, I've done two this year, one as my firsts where i make my primary decisions, and this one as one to take a different approach (Salah-less initially) and to just have a bit of fun with I guess.

            I think your suggested move with Bruno is something I'd considered for the firsts as Bruno will likely be coming in but I think I may give James a shot and see how we go...

            Its not the best gameweek is it... a lot of assets playing one another (LIV CHE, SOT TOT) so I'm not expecting bigs things are you?!

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

      You're good, it's not like Chelsea suddenly have a great defence with Silva, expect Robbo or Trent to get returns, as Chelsea are poor in those wider areas (Lamptey was bossing them for 90 minutes)

    Playing Kane into form for week 3 by fielding double Southampton defence. Solid tactics approved by RMT which doesn’t even have Taylor first bench

      Adams is the most droppable. Really unimpressed with his movement and control against Palace but still a good FPL asset.
