How De Bruyne’s new Man City role affects his FPL credentials

Wolves 1-3 Man City

  • Goals: Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m) | Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m), Phil Foden (£6.5m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m)
  • Assists: Daniel Podence (£5.5m) | Raheem Sterling (£11.5m), De Bruyne
  • Bonus points: De Bruyne x3, Foden x2, Jesus x1

Kevin De Bruyne‘s (£11.6m) new role at Manchester City looks set to have a massive impact on Fantasy Premier League managers this season.

Having spent much of 2019/20 in a central midfield trio, the Belgian was deployed as an out-and-out number 10 in Monday night’s 3-1 win over Wolves, something that heavily influenced his 13-point haul.

De Bruyne registered a goal and assist at Molineux, spending the evening causing unending problems for a defence that has been the Premier League’s best since Gameweek 25 of last season.

In that time, Wolves had ranked best for shots in the box conceded, big chances conceded, shots on target conceded, expected goals conceded (xGC) and clean sheets. But De Bruyne’s more attacking role helped Manchester City dismantle Nuno Espirito Santo’s men with relative ease.

The Belgian’s number 10 duties were facilitated by the addition of Nathan Aké (£5.5m) to Pep Guardiola’s squad. That meant, despite Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) missing the game, that Fernandinho (£5.5m) was free to return to midfield, where he formed a defensive patrol alongside Rodrigo (£5.5m).

“Fernandinho will be really important. He’s 35 years old and he cannot play every three days. Last year he struggled a lot to be fit for most of the season but he played really well with Rodri [against Wolves]. They were both good with and without the ball.” – Pep Guardiola

They were an effective pair in terms of protecting Manchester City’s back-four from Wolves’ attackers for most of the game, allowing De Bruyne to focus only what was in front of him. As already mentioned, the result was a man-of-the-match performance from the premium midfielder, as he tormented Wolves all night long, scored a fifth penalty in all competitions since February, and threw himself into the captaincy conversation for a Gameweek 3 visit to the Etihad Stadium for Leicester City.

“Not just today but since we came back, every training session I feel (De Bruyne) is incredibly committed. Right now, he is an incredibly important player for us. He always was but with the situation, we are in now he is so important. He played really well, shot an incredible penalty, he was strong and he did it perfectly. The amount of assists, how he runs. He played really well, like the whole team.” – Pep Guardiola

The question is, will Guardiola continue to use De Bruyne as a number 10? It is always impossible to second-guess the Manchester City boss, of course, but considering how effective his 4-2-3-1 formation was at Molineux, it would make a lot of sense to deploy it against Leicester too.

In many respects, Guardiola will be restricted in how much he can tweak his team selection for Gameweek 3 considering the number of absent players right now. Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) is out until the international break, while Ilkay Gundögan (£5.5m) has tested positive for coronavirus.

“Joao (Cancelo), Bernardo (Silva), Oleks(andr Zinchenko) and Sergio (Aguero) will be longer probably after the international break. That is the situation today but it will maybe change a little bit.” – Pep Guardiola

Those absences should leave Guardiola with no option but to roll with Fernandinho, Rodrigo and De Bruyne in midfield against Leicester. Meanwhile, the City manager has done his Fantasy counterparts a favour in terms of peace of mind, by revealing on Monday night that the Thursday-evening EFL Cup match would mostly feature younger and academy players instead of key first-teamers.

Meanwhile, Aguero’s ongoing absence boosts the FPL credentials of Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m), who got his first goal of the season in Monday night’s win.

While Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) and Phil Foden (£6.5m) still have to compete with Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and new signing Ferran Torres (£7.0m) for starting berths on the flanks of attacking midfield, there is a lot more certainty of starts for Jesus until Aguero returns.

The Brazilian made the most of his first outing of the campaign at Wolves, acting as a tireless member of the attack and going close to finding the net before his stoppage-time goal.

In the 42nd minute, he provided an excellent cushion header for De Bruyne to ghost past Willy Boly (£5.5m) and get one-on-one with Rui Patrício (£5.5m). The Wolves goalkeeper produced a fantastic save to deny the Belgian, who would have earned an assist for Jesus.

In the 52nd minute, De Bruyne played an outside-of-the-boot pass to Jesus, who came back across Conor Coady (£5.0m) and saw his left-foot shot saved by Patrício again.

Then, late in the game, the striker surged forward on the counter-attack and fired a powerful shot from distance that Patrício did well to tip around the post. It looked as if it would be a night of bad luck for Jesus owners in terms of attacking returns, until De Bruyne rolled the ball to him on the edge of the box, allowing him to blast home a deserved goal.

With Leicester, Leeds, Arsenal and West Ham the next four matches for Manchester City, an attacking double-up would certainly have its merits. As already mentioned, Jesus looks the most nailed-on option outside of De Bruyne for anyone looking for such a set-up.

As much as Manchester City kept Wolves at bay for most of the game, the home side did force their way into proceedings during the last half an hour, a spell which helped fine-tune how best to invest in their assets moving forward.

Nuno’s men face an excellent run of upcoming games, putting them against West Ham (away), Fulham (home), Leeds (away), Newcastle (home) and Crystal Palace (home) between now and Gameweek 7.

Perhaps the safest bet has to be Raúl Jiménez (£8.5m), whose headed goal against Manchester City means he has two in as many appearances at the start of this season.

But with his price still causing a few issues for the big spenders in midfield, Fantasy managers are considering Daniel Podence (£5.5m) for their teams, and with good reason.

Like Jiménez, Wolves’ number 10 has two attacking returns in two. In his case, they are both assists but Podence’s first goal of the season does not look a long way off.

In the 53rd minute, makeshift wing-back Adama Traoré (£6.5m) got the better of Benjamin Mendy (£6.0m), squaring the ball early to an unmarked Podence hovering in the middle of the box. His shot on the turn was off-target, but this passage of play was indicative of the positions Podence has been drifting into from the flanks of Wolves’ front-three.

Pedro Neto (£5.5m) found some joy behind Mendy a few minutes later, cutting back to Podence in the box. While he let the ball run for Ruben Neves (£5.5m) with a dummy, it was another promising position taken up by Wolves’ number 10.

Then in the 59th minute, Podence was put through one-on-one with Ederson (£6.0m) and came close to finding the net with a lob that landed on the roof of the net.

And nobody will forget the way Podence helped put Wolves back in the game. It was him who produced the exceptional cross for Jiménez’s header… just seconds after nutmegging De Bruyne (?!).

Podence’s ability is there for all to see and we are likely to see investment in the £5.5m man over the next few days based on form, price and fixtures.

However, it is worth just keeping our readers informed of the caveats that come with transferring the former Olympiacos man for Gameweek 3.

It seems fair to say that Podence’s chances of further starts are, to some extent, reliant on the shape Nuno chooses each week. So far, he has operated in a 3-4-3 formation, which accommodates two wingers, while a switch to 3-5-2 could put Podence in competition with Neto and Traoré for the right wing-back slot.

While Wolves are without a recognised like-for-like replacement for Matt Doherty (£6.0m) in that position, a new signing at right wing-back could also put Traoré back into contention for a place in the front-three.

Meanwhile, Vitinha (£5.0m) offers competition on the flanks of attacking midfield, and Wolves are expected to unveil the signing of Nelson Semedo very soon.

For the short-term, Podence has probably earned a start in at least the next match based on merit, although it is interesting to note that, despite two strong performances, Nuno wants him to improve moving forward.

“I think (Podence) is improving. It’s about the complicity with his teammates. He has more knowledge and the talent of Daniel is huge. He is very talented, has quality and is a fighter. He did well. He must improve like everybody. He must be more clinical in the box and that will be beneficial for us. We are going to work. Every day is a day to improve. Of course, the more games, the more complicity, the better we can be.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Meanwhile, options in the Wolves defence took an interesting turn in Gameweek 2. After it appeared Ruben Vinagre (£4.4m) had lost his place from the start of the campaign, Marçal (£5.0m) was forced off with an unspecified injury eight minutes into the Manchester City match.

Nuno could not reveal the extent of the problem post-match, but anyone still holding Vinagre should pay close attention to his Gameweek 3 press conference later in the week for updates.

“We must assess (Marçal’s injury). It was just at the beginning of the match. He felt something and now we are going to assess. Let’s see. He said that he felt something and was not able to continue, so we immediately made a substitution so things didn’t get worse.” – Nuno Espirito Santo

Wolverhampton Wanderers XI (3-4-3): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Boly; Marçal (Vinagre 8′), Neves, Moutinho (Dendoncker 78′), Traoré; Neto (F Silva 78′), Jiménez, Podence.

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; B Mendy, Aké, Stones, Walker; Rodrigo, Fernandinho; Sterling (Torres 82′), De Bruyne, Foden; Jesus.

      Too many risks before the transfer window?

      Brewster might not move/play?
      Greenwood might be gone?
      Foden a bit of a risk (like the pick though)
      Dunne 4.0 and Ferguson 4.0 both not certain to start?

      You could be in a mess by GW5?

    3. Puncheon Guly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Dunne, Ferguson, Brewster, Foden may all have limited minutes. I'd go with James over Greenwood for now, although in a Sancho-free world I see him being a great pick

        I can hide behind the couch and hope for Robbo to deliver 😀

    2. Fudgy

      Wow really good

    3. DrunkPhilosophy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Vinagre and Greenwood are the only concerns.. rest is good

  10. acidicleo
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Wilson to DCL (-4).

    Yes or No?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      not for a hit imo

    2. dshv
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I did that so yea

    3. Dire Souffle
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      No - to be worth it DCL probably needs to score two goals more than Wilson this week.

      1. acidicleo
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        1 goal more breaks even ryt?

        1. Dire Souffle
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Yeah, so no point risking it for the hit. If you are playing the percentages you really need to think DCL will get two more to be worth it.

          1. Dire Souffle
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 2 months ago

            I am assuming you can use a free transfer next game week to make the move for free. If you have other plans for that FT then it may be worth it.

    4. kevchenko
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Yeeeeeeeaaaa

      DCL starting with a -4 handicap will outscore Wilson by at least double digits in the next 6 weeks.

    5. DrunkPhilosophy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think long term should pay off

    6. acidicleo

  12. Bretth96
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    How much game time do people think Foden will get this season? I’m hoping he starts at least 1 in every 2 now with D.Silva gone but I think Torres could be an issue once he’s fully integrated in the team

    1. Seanigula
      • 12 Years

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Haha, none?!

      I've got that exact decision.

      I'm waiting for Son to go up to 9.1 hopefully and then I'll sacrifice him feeling like I'm rich.

      Too many people are ditching TAA and I am glad, as they will all regret it. He was first name on everyones draft and 2 GW's in people have lost faith!

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        hey hey will you make that 0.1 profit too 🙂

        1. kevchenko
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Haha, I feel like my whole season depends on it 🙂

    4. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      TAA.

      Son and Jiminez outscore him for the short term I think. Can always bring him in when Spurs fixtures turn.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        cheers

      2. kevchenko
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        TAA is fixture proof though?

        Liverpool aren't anywhere near as bad at the back as is being made out and he could get double digits so easily.

        To be fair they're all good picks aren't they, it's hard to lose 1 of them!

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          which one will you go for ?

        2. Scots Gooner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          True, TAA can get points from any game and prob the hardest to predict.

          I'm having the same decision to make and its between TAA and Son right now.

          More than likely Son has had his major haul of the season, while TAA is still due his. May cash out on Son after his next rise.

          Tough call.

          But feel the ceiling is low and hence not exciting to own imo..

          1. Ajax Hamsterdam
            • 7 Years

            fair point

    6. luk46

      Should be back next game

  16. jimmyabs1987
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Podence and Foden (rotating)

    Or

    Zaha and Alzate and just play Zaha

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I like A. There will be weeks where Zaha and Alzate both hit 2, I reckon at least one of the others will return most weekS.

      1. jimmyabs1987
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yes but it’s choosing the right 1 haha

    3. DrunkPhilosophy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Rotating never works for me, you will facing a tough decision every week.. I would save myself the headache and go Zaha or one of Podence/Foden and use the money elsewhere!

    4. FredrikH
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      The less headachy one. But found a 3-5-2 with both Podence and Zaha I kind of pref.

    5. Gr3g
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Rotation will always leave points on the bench, on top of that both Podence and Foden can be easily rotated by Pep and Nuno

  17. stu92
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    I think I already know the answer, but...

    A) ASM > Hames
    B) Holding > Saiss
    C) Doherty > Saiss

    I’m taking a hit to make this transfer, and will end up bringing in the other for GW4.

    Burke OOP last night up front for Sheffield Utd.
    Can any Sheffield Utd fans comment on if this is likely to become a thing?

      Not a Sheffield fan, but I’m sure Wilder said that’s where he’d be playing once up to match fitness. Not sure how likely he is to be rotated mind you.

        One to watch for sure

    Captain?

    Werner
    Salah
    Kdb

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Werner is the obvious choice based on opposition, but really could go any way.

    2. acidicleo
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      KDB

  20. Vazza

    Would the West Ham v Wolves game still go ahead this weekend?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam

      think so

      a tad weak at the back and i d go werner ahead of jesus. also i wouldnt bench a 5.5 def

      1. gomez123

        Only benching him vs CITY....if that makes sense

    Morning all,

    How does Vardy to Jiménez sounds for -4, too much of sideway move I’m guessing?

    Thanks,

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Could work out well. Wolves fixtures are great and he’s in the up.

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        *on

      2. Gr3g
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah, on the other hand Vardy 2 home fixtures after City look good as well. Difficult decision, will probably wait closer to the weekend

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Not sideways at all. Vardy has looked average, 2 x pens on GW1 glossed over a poor game. Not much better GW2.

      Jiminez has great fixtures coming up, don't get much better. He's so consistent, he almost guarantees points over the next 5.

      1. Gr3g
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Love the upcoming wolves fixtures and was all set to get some of their players but my hand was forced with other transfers. I had JWP from the start as my Saints cover and penalty taker, that worked well...

    Name your top two 5.5 or under long term defenders

    1. BobbyV
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Castagne
      Saiss

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      chillwell and castagne

    3. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years

      Keane

    4. acidicleo
      • 5 Years

      All the above 3 plus lamptey.

    McCarthy (Steer)
    TAA KWP Taylor (Lewis) (Ferguson)
    Salah KDB B.Fernandes ASM (Bissouma)
    Werner Mitrovic Adams
    I already made my transfer Auba - KDB
    With Ferguson, ASM and Lewis injured and Bissouma - red card, I am wondering to do WC or -4/-8. Which one is better?

    1. Dire Souffle
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Depends on what your WC team would be. If mostly the same then just take a -4

  26. Fergymac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Anyone else think Podence is being way over hyped on here? His stats from previous seasons are awful.

    1. BobbyV
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      So too are Salah’s stats from Chelsea

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He looked great versus City so if he is nailed hes a very good pick at 5.5 in a top 6 chasing Wolves team without European issues.

      1. FredrikH
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        This

    3. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He looks very good to me, im just mulling over him in for ASM or bring in James for Egan.

    Follow up question:

    A) Hames
    B) Zaha

    Yarmolenko was superb last night albeit against hull. Maybe wolves won’t have such an easy game after all..?

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Wolves is a much, much better team than Hull

    2. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Is Diop not one of their best defenders? Not a West Ham follower at all but reckon the latest Covid cases could impact them.

    3. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hull compared to Wolves = a huge lmao

  29. FredrikH
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Will Zaha keep taking palenties until Mili gets his spot back?

    1. stu92
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I reckon he’ll score palenty until then.

    2. FredrikH
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Pelanties.

      1. FredrikH
        • 9 Years

        Beninging

    3. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Yes will still be on pelanties

      1. FredrikH
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        What about penalties then? I did it!

  30. Whiskerz
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Damn! 0.1 off this team

    Martinez
    TAA . Saiss . Taylor . Lamptey . Mitchell
    Salah. KDB . Jamez . Zaha . Podence
    Jimenez . Werner . Davis

    Suppose I could trim Taylor to Dunne and hope?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Sterling says hi.

      1. Whiskerz
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        on WC so I already have KDB at base price

    2. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      7/10 missing spurs attack

      1. Whiskerz
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        not feeling the spurs love. Taking my Son points and running

    3. Rinseboy
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Werner could drop and you're there mate!

      1. Whiskerz
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        hopefully. Or a double rise on Son /DCL will do me too.

    4. Aj Royals
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Play 3-4-3 which will help to manage Werner - Jimi - DCL combo and decent mid. You have to sacrifice Trent though
