Rodgers offers Vardy injury update after Foxes thrash striker-less Man City

Manchester City 2-5 Leicester City

  • Goals: Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m), Nathan Ake (£5.5m) | Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) x3, James Maddison (£7.0m), Youri Tielemans (£6.4m)
  • Assists: Mahrez | Timothy Castagne (£5.6m), Nampalys Mendy (£4.5m), Maddison
  • Bonus: Vardy x3, Mahrez x2, Maddison x1

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers thinks that Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) “will be fine” after Sunday’s hat-trick hero walked gingerly from the field of play in the closing stages of a remarkable match at the Etihad.

Vardy took his 2020/21 goals tally to five in the Foxes’ 5-2 win over a shellshocked Manchester City but appeared to be in some discomfort towards the end of the match, eventually being replaced with five minutes to go.

Both player and manager confirmed that the issue was Vardy’s hip, rather than his groin as originally reported, that was causing him discomfort but Rodgers revealed that it was an ongoing issue and something that hasn’t stopped him from playing in the past:

Vardy was even more bullish when interviewed after full-time, telling the broadcast media:

I’ve just got a slight issue with my hip, I think it’s a bit of growth in one of the bones, it just clicks every so often and just gives me a bit of pain. It’s no issue. I’ll be absolutely fine.

Rodgers was also optimistic about two other Leicester players who were withdrawn because of injury issues.

Jonny Evans (£5.5m), who was only just back from suspension and a thigh injury, hobbled off in the final 10 minutes, while Dennis Praet (£5.5m) looked in some discomfort when being replaced midway through the second half.

Rodgers said:

Jonny [Evans] felt his calf tighten up, first game for such a long time. We’re hoping that’s all it is. Dennis [Praet], we’ll have to wait and see. A sort of twist of his knee, so hopefully that won’t be too serious. Hopefully, those three [including Vardy] will be OK.

FABULOUS FOXES

Given that Leicester limped over the finish line at the end of 2019/20 with four wins from their final 17 Premier League matches, there were understandable reservations about their Fantasy assets at the start of this campaign.

They have put those concerns to bed in the first few weeks of 2020/21, however, winning all three of their games to date and racking up 12 goals in the process.

Sunday’s win over Manchester City continued the renaissance and there were eye-catching displays all over the park.

Vardy was typically sharp off the ball and clinical on the rare occasions he was on it: only Ederson (£6.0m) of the 22 starting players had fewer touches than the Leicester man, while the 33-year-old striker had only three shots on goal – and converted them all.

Two of his goals came from the penalty spot after he himself had been fouled, while his second strike was a superb flick from a Timothy Castagne (£5.6m) cross.

Considering that only four of his 23 goals in his Golden Boot-winning year came from 12 yards, he could easily trump that total in 2020/21 should penalties continue to be dished out as freely as emojis from the FFS Twitter account.

CASTAGNE DELIVERS AGAIN

Castagne has now registered attacking returns in all three Gameweeks so far and is the leading points scorer among FPL defenders by some margin, having averaged nine points per match since his move from Atalanta.

Leicester may have changed to a back five and sat a bit deeper in this match but the Belgian right-back was still given license to get forward, bombing on to the byline to supply Vardy’s second goal.

It should be said that he has created only three chances all season but both he and James Justin (£4.7m) have really caught the eye, not just for their assist potential: diagonal runs towards the six-yard box brought them goals in Gameweeks 1 and 2.

Elsewhere, Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) was excellent – it’s easy to forget that he struggled for form last season and how much of an asset his slick passing was to Leicester’s front players when Rodgers first took charge at the end of 2018/19. If he has rediscovered that form, then that can again only benefit Vardy.

The Belgian “assisted the assister” for Leicester’s second goal and it was from his through-pass that substitute James Maddison (£7.0m) won the Foxes’ third penalty, a spot-kick that Tielemans converted with Vardy off the field.

Maddison had earlier curled in a superb effort from distance to put Leicester 4-2 up.

Missing out on the points was Harvey Barnes (£7.0m) but he too caught the eye, supplying the key passes that led to Leicester’s first two penalties and looking a real threat around the hosts’ box.

A home match against West Ham is up next for the Foxes and, as strange as it sounds, this might be the toughest test for Vardy, Barnes et al to date: so far Leicester have faced the division’s worst defence in West Brom, a Burnley team missing both first-choice centre-halves and then a Manchester City outfit that played into their hands on Sunday.

The Hammers have looked uncharacteristically solid since moving to a back three in Gameweek 2, allowing Arsenal and Wolves few clear-cut opportunities in their last two games.

WHAT NOW FOR MAN CITY ASSETS?

Manchester City haven’t become a bad team overnight; in fact, this was very reminiscent of their form in 2019/20.

The Citizens may never have conceded five goals under Guardiola before but games against Norwich City, Wolves and Lyon last season were similar to this one, with their defence as capable of shooting themselves in the foot as they are racking up a string of clean sheets (they kept a league-high 17 of those in the season just gone).

Their Gameweek 4 match against Leeds could just as easily end 5-0 to City as it could 3-2 to the Whites, and that’s why our interest remains so keen in their attacking assets.

Given the ongoing injury crisis, the likes of Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) also face little threat of rotation at present.

With Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) and Sergio Aguero (£10.4m) out for a month, Sterling started this game as the central striker in Guardiola’s 4-2-3-1, with De Bruyne supporting him in the number 10 role.

Time will tell if the lack of an orthodox striker blunts City’s attack but Sterling was peripheral and they created little of quality from open play, with their two goals – a Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) howitzer and a Nathan Ake (£5.5m) header – both coming from corners.

Phil Foden (£6.6m) was borderline anonymous, eventually being substituted just after the hour-mark, while the sight of 17-year-old Liam Delap (£4.5m) being thrown on early in the second half hinted at how desperate Guardiola was.

The City boss said after full-time:

We played really good in the first 30 minutes. We scored early on but I think they defended so deep, so it was not easy. In this situation, it happened many times, we have to control the counter-attack. The problem was that we put extra pressure on ourselves to score the second or third one when they just didn’t want to play.

They just wanted to defend and play on the counter-attack and in that position, we have to be more calm. We started to think we are playing bad. We told them at half-time they were playing good, try to be patient and the rest will be in our hands, but we were not strong enough to be stable and patient.

Manchester City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Garcia, Ake, Mendy; Rodri, Fernandinho (Delap 51′); Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden (Torres 64′); Sterling.

Leicester City XI (5-4-1): Schmeichel; Castagne, Amartey, Evans (Fuchs 80′), Soyuncu, Justin; Praet (Maddison 69′), Tielemans, Mendy, Barnes; Vardy (Iheanacho 89′).

        Tough mate, been looking at it for , I think A, but B has two pen takers.

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years

          Very tough. Your WC team had me thinking.

            That is why we come on mate, always new ideas, your question had me thinking 🙂

        A not relying only on penalties (oldies thinking) 😉

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Haha thanks. I hear that

        A for me. I think that will be better long term

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Thanks. Yeah, I'm leaning that way. Not convinced by Utd.

    8. Reyson

      No leicester player vs westham gonna be costly?

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Don't particularly think so. Nice to have though.

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Not really WHU could turn up anytime

    9. unlethal
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Barnes vs Zaha is an interesting debate to me.

      Barnes looks electric and on form and we all know how Zaha can turn it on against anyone. Both can be frustrating picks but so far this season Zaha has an xG90 of 0.67 compared to Barnes' 0.38. Zaha is also on penalties and Palace have a nice run of fixtures after Chelsea.

      However, Barnes is playing for a better side who will produce more goals than Palace.

      Who would you choose?

      1. lilmessipran
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Really tough one.. leaning towards Zaha because of pens

        1. unlethal
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          With the number of penalties being given this season so far too..

      2. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Tough one. I don't rate Barnes as the best fpl option. Palace look way better than expected but you've nailed Zaha. Frustrating to own.

        1. unlethal
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Barnes seems to be getting better and better though

      3. Sahil.....
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Had zaha just got barnes for son

      4. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Barnes next 4 and then switch to Zaha. Plum fixtures throughout 7-8 weeks or so with that.

        1. The Man Pastore
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          this

        2. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Good thinking

      5. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Zaha for penalties. I own both though.

      6. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I'm leaning toward Zaha because of pen and plum fixtures after that but Leicester attack is really one to watch however West Ham just won big so they probably got confidence while Chelsea's defense still need to be sorted out.

        I'm thinking Chelsea can win but Zaha can sneak in a goal or penalty and last season, Zaha also scored against Chelsea and he's pretty solid away

        so Zaha for me

    10. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Is castagne the real deal for an attacking full back or a tad bit fortunate with the points so far?

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Real deal

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Real deal, passed eye test for me and got in my team last week

      3. Sahil.....

        justin and castagne are the new taa n robbo

          I would not go that far 😉 but it's promising

      4. da Beeeez

        both -- the real deal and a tad bit fortunate...

    11. Jinswick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Best MID/FWD combo for 16.3m?

      A) Mahrez & DCL
      B) Rodriguez & Ings
      C) Trossard & Vardy

      Salah, KDB, xxx, Foden
      Jimenez, xxx

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        C

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        C for that, A is close second just due too much City at this point

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What about Trossard Mahrez Ings and drop Foden?

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Already taking a -4 to switch Son/Antonio this week

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Barnes Ings?

            1. Jinswick
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Yep that also works. Reckon it’s worth a -4 ditching Antonio, or best to just switch Son for free. Sorta fancy Mahrez vs Leeds

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                I would not take hit removing Antonio ... I would do Son > Barnes and do anything else next week

                I'm in same boat. Think son antonio for zaha dcl is my bet. Bank cash and upgrade Davies soon maybe to digne

      Would you do Podence (FUL) to Barnes (WHU) for a hit? Already have Jimenez and Castagne ... next 4 fixtures both are good.

      1. CBonci
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        No I wouldn’t take a hit for that. Podence has looked good and if he is back he can do well. Fulham D is in shambles.

          Yeah need 2 attacking returns from Barnes for a hit (Podence may have a return but even more).

        I wouldn't mate for a hit, wait on news.

        Barnes a great pick and a couple of fixture to benefit. -4 is a hard one though as Podence injury not serious

            Pereira, look at their fixtures

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Yeah. Their fixtures are amazing

            Good question.
            Both teams can score goals. Trossard eye candy in a better side. I would prefer Maupay on pens too.
            Periera a good differential. Talented guy.
            50/50 Can't help bud.

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              This, Pereira Maupay combo could be a bargain

                • 6 Years

                Yep a good money saver to enable big hitters (who take pens (smile))

                1. Amey

              Too many Strikers i want so can't fit Maupay atm 😀

              Thanks !

              It's a 50/50 and i take wrong one generally so trying to see what most think. Will go that way

                    Good choices but fiddle around to see what you can do with extra 2 mil

                      • 2 Years

                      Agree.
                      No Midfielder below Son to 6m tempts me tbh.

                      Serious lack of options in that price bracket IMO. Zaha Barnes are trolls for me

                        2 months, 23 hours ago

                        Theres a stack of options in that price bracket. Hames, Grealish, Foden, Greenwood if he starts getting airtime, plus the two you mentioned who are not trolls.

            Pereira. Too central to what WBA do. But dont expect much as they can go without scoring for games.

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Yeah. They have some attacking style to their Play. I ended up with GK pair that went horrible.

              Thanks mate. Fixtures definitely looks good for Pereira.

          • 3 Years

          Would you rather have Salah or de Bruyne? I'm making de Bruyne because of fixtures right now. It would be Auba out for either of them, which I'm comfortable with

                    B - current odds I'm seeing showing Burnley as twice as likely as Brighton to get the clean sheet. Lamptey's attacking prospects make him playable but don't overcome that.

                    This double Liverpool still offers more value than the 7M mids. Looking at GW6 WC with double Pool.

                      Hold then.
                      He should get something vs United.

                        or just Kane to vardy

                        wonder how they will play without Son

                          They will play same 😉
                          Vardy is straight forward move

                    Should I:
                    A. Son > Zaha FT
                    B. Son + Werner > Fernandes/Rashford + Richarlison for -4

                    Have Salah, KDB, Hames and Mitrovic.

                      why dont keep werner?

                        Werner just does not seem likely to outscore Havertz and Abraham to me. I'd only keep him to save FT at this time.

                      i did Zaha and keep Werner for at least 2 home fixtures, i trust he and Havertz will do good but if he's not then by GW6 there's a possibility to switch out CHE to LIV or another team

                      Why Traore?

                        only have 6.6 left for midfield...not too sure who to take.

                          Pereira and Trossard are popular picks for that money.
