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.

    Is it worth a hit to avoid price drop on Davies? What are the chances of him starting this GW? Don’t see Mourinho changing to 5-3-2 all of a sudden

    Hey guys,
    I made a huge mistake yesterday. I was exhausted but did my FT. I wanted to do Auba > KDB, but did Salah > KDB ...
    SHould I take a hit to take him back knowing that he's 0.1 more than when I sold him ?

    1. PepSala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I would. Salah will keep going up in price. He's got Villa next.

    2. The Knights Template

    WC G2G?

    Martinez
    Robbo / Saiss / Mitchell
    Salah / KDB / Sterling / Podence
    DCL / Jimenez / Watkins
    _________________________
    Steer / Justin / Ferguson / Burke

    Have been toying with Son but City's firepower too hard to overlook
    Could potentially change Sterling + Watkins to Jesus + James/Zaha/Barnes

    Cheers

    1. Kabayan
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Similar draft.
      Robbo-Raz-Watkins-DCL to my VVD-Son-Werner-Wood
      But it leaves no Everton's attack for me.
      Hhhmmm...

  9. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years

    Which is better on WC:

    1) Werner/ Son, Podence/ Robertson, Ayling
    2) Kane/ Rodriguez, Podence/ TAA, Ayling
    3) DCL/ Son, Zaha/ TAA, Reece James

    Other outfield players are:

    Mitchell, Lamptey, Taylor
    KDB Salah Foden
    Jiminez Brewster

    1. The Knights Template

  10. GOATMEAT

    What do you think of Castagne? I think he's looking great offensively and 0.5 cheaper than Digne. Might get some CS points too later.

    1. tokara
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Better than Digne imo (when attacking)

      A lot of WCs being played which don't affect the price changes and the pricing algorithms can't differentiate them from non wildcard transfers as far as I'm aware

        This is a weird season. So many options that I think we’ll see a less settled template and it’ll be possible to have a good year without having coverage from some of the top teams. I don’t think Utd assets will be any more essential than Chelsea, Spurs or Everton players. Can’t have them all.

    G2G? There is some pressing issues but think team is fine for this week.

    McCarthy
    Shaw Davies TAA
    Rashford Bowen KDB Hamez
    DCL Martial Werner

    Justin, Mitchell, Bissouma

    0.5 itb

    A) Bowen -> Foden/Podence -4 long term
    B) WC
    C) Other?

    KDB or Sterling?

    1. luk46
      • 3 Years

      the better football player

    2. Whitetiger14
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Both will fire on their day

    3. W

      KDB is the safer pick (on pens, v highly owned), but Sterling could be a good differential, with the potential for more explosive scoring.
      Bear in mind that KDB to Sterling is an easy switch if he starts hitting form, not so easy the other way around.

    4. Gabbiadini

      KDB easily.

    5. antis0cial

      Read the article. Kdb for me.

    Justin Or Lamptey..?

    1. W
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      For now, Justin. Lamptey will come good though over the season

      1. Taegugk Warrior
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Why justin is just for short term...? Is he not first choice at the starting line up..?

        1. W
          • 8 Years

          There is uncertainty over him keeping his place once Pereira is back

        2. luk46
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Pereira will be back at some point, quite hard to drop him considering how well he plays tho

      Justin for gw4 & 5 i think. Then pereira might be back after that and u can switch to lamptey

      1. Whitetiger14
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Lamptey long term

  26. Whitetiger14

      1. La Roja

        Neither

        Podence imo

  27. booboofc

    On a WC with 1.1m in the bank.. Spend or keep money spare for future transfer?

    Martinez
    TAA James Saiss
    KDB Son Salah Podence
    DCL Mitro Jimi

    Nyland, Mitchell Justin Anguissa

    1. Whitetiger14
      • 6 Years

      Keep

    2. luk46
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      maybe Guaita or Castagne over James; no pressing issue either way

    Right now my WC has no chelsea attack which is worrying but you can’t get them all - additionally I feel we should be doubling on city but again that is a sacrifice

    What team attacks are you prioritising

    1. tokara
      • 7 Years

      Dont bother chelsea, their goals w be spread out.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Arguably the best set of fixtures for the next 3 games

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          with injuries they have, struggling to create. I am on WC too and only opted for James

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            I think we’ll see some players returning this week - pool was always going to be tough

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      City and Wolves, tripled up on both - triple MCI attack, double WOV attack. Salah and Rodriguez/DCL accompanying them. Loss of Chelsea attack isn't heartbreaking until they get their act together.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Can you get Reece James instead?

      1. Eat my goal!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Of course but not convinced on him myself

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

          Based on nailedness or Chelsea defence resilience?

          1. Eat my goal!
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Just kepa lol

            I think it’ll be an attacking return few and far between

    4. Captain Hindsight
      • 10 Years

      Same, I have Jesus over Werner but think I will switch back for cover

  29. Captain Hindsight
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    The captain poll isn’t showing me results. Can anyone confirm the top three please?

    1. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Maybe you can only see them when GW3 has ended 😉

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

      KDB Salah Werner is my guess

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It looks like a change of policy by FFS, we probably won't get a result until the bottom of the Scout Picks now and that's members only.

      1. Captain Hindsight
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        That’ll backfire - what’s the point of voting

    Currently on WC

    FW - DCL, Bamford, Ings
    1. Ings -> Werner?
    2. DCL -> Jimi
    3. Ings & DCL -> Werner & Jimi? (Means downgrading MID)
