De Bruyne, Foden on Man City bench as Aguero starts

Kevin de Bruyne (£11.5m) is back in the Manchester City fold after missing out through injury in Gameweek 5.

The Belgium star was also sidelined for City’s 3-1 win against Porto on Wednesday night but returned to training the following day.

Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) was also pictured back on the training pitches, though is not part of Pep Guardiola’s matchday 18. Nathan Aké (£5.5m) also misses out for the Citizens.

Joining KDB on the bench is Phil Foden (£6.6m), who fails to earn a place in the starting XI despite only being used as a substitute in the Champions League. Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) captains the side.

Sergio Aguero (£10.4m), who netted a penalty in that Porto clash, starts for the third consecutive game in all competitions.

On the striker, Guardiola explained in his pre-Champions League press conference:

Having Sergio on the pitch, we are better, we are safer. We missed him a lot in important moments in the later part of the season. Now it is good news for us that he is back.

The important thing is that Sergio comes back in good physical condition, starts to get his rhythm, doesn’t get more injuries and and plays good.

At his pre-West Ham news conference, Guardiola said of his other senior striker Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m):

He’s getting better but a tough injury. Hopefully still he couldn’t train with us.

He will be ready when he does train because he gets the form quickly but maybe one week, two weeks before that [happens].

On new centre-back Ruben Dias (£5.5m), the City boss added:

He settled good. He came from Benfica fully fit. He still needs time to get some situations, some ideas, some rhythm and process we need. He’s open minded.

In Laporte’s absence, Dias is partnered by Eric Garcia (£4.8m) at centre-back while Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) keeps his place from the XI that beat Arsenal 1-0 in Gameweek 5.

Joao Cancelo (£5.4m) looks set to operate at left-back in a 4-3-3 system, though Guardiola’s set-up against the Gunners saw the full-back tuck into midfield for large portions of the game.

While the City manager has named an unchanged XI from the Porto tie – his first time doing so since October 2017 – there are two changes from that win over the Gunners with Garcia and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m) replacing Aké and Foden.

On his line-up, Guardiola told BT Sport:

It is what it is. For the teams who play in Europe and international competitions, the schedule is tight with a lot of games. It happened last season, so with the covid situation we have to adapt.

We didn’t have much preparation and we have to get it during the game. That’s why today is another opportunity to improve what we’ve improved the last games and get up to the table.

We decide to continue with the same guys to get the rhythm as quick as possible for some players.

Yeah, he’s important [De Bruyne]. Aymeric is close too and Nathan as well so it’s important players come back.

David Moyes names an unchanged West Ham XI for the third straight gameweek, with the Hammers fresh off a thrilling 3-3 comeback draw against Spurs in GW5.

Michail Antonio (£6.3m) Tomas Soucek (£4.9m) Aaron Cresswell (£5.0m) and Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) are among the names that FPL bosses will be eyeing up ahead of fixture turn for the Hammers in Gameweek 8.

On new signing Saïd Benrahma (£6.0m), who does not make the matchday squad, Moyes explained on Friday:

He needs to get up to speed with what we want and where we are at so it has given me the opportunity to take a bit more time with him.

But I have said the same before with the boys from the Championship, I am not in any rush to put them in. I like to give them the opportunities at the right time.

I will take my time with him, bring him on when he is ready and get him in a good condition to start to then play well when he does.

West Ham United XI (3-4-3): Fabianski; Cresswell, Ogbonna, Balbuena; Masuaku, Rice, Soucek, Coufal; Fornals, Antonio, Bowen.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Garcia, Dias, Walker; Bernardo, Rodri, Gundogan; Sterling, Aguero, Mahrez.

    Foden here. Ouch

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes, got a rancid feeling about this week

  3. Baps hunter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1 year, 2 days ago

    Foden can no longer be trusted to start.

    1. Seanigula
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      He could never be trusted to start once others returned

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      I was expecting him to start instead of Mahrez who played 90 mins in CL, but now I have to admit that Pep roulette is perhaps impossible to predict. Yet that is hardly breaking news 😉

    3. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      When could he ever be trusted to start? Part of the deal with bringing in Foden is riding out the inevitable benchings.

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Agree, if he was a guaranteed regular starter he'd be closer to 7.5m - 8m

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          Well... Mahrez is more expensive and close to that price bracket, but tbh, who was certain that he would start today?

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Gw2 to gw5 perhaps?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Those were never guaranteed.

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 2 days ago

            With my hindsight at least 😉

        Exactly

    I have no Man City players...let's make it a 1-1 with Rodrigo scoring both

    1. PascalCygan
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Yes please

  5. Flynny
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 days ago

    Guess we all know the risks with foden

    But when you are ranked 3.5m and on 5 from 2, it isn't great!

    Think James out is more of a priority for me - and keep foden for now.

    Hopefully he gets 30 mins today and does well

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Same boat as bench is looking pretty ropey at the moment

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      You mean Reece James or Hames?

      1. Flynny
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Reece James!!

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          He is only at -27% so his price may not drop this week. At least no hurry to early transfer out.

    3. kennethrhcp

      apologies now... but thanks for making me feel good for my 1.3m rank 🙂

    Hope for some 1pt cameos then. 1-1 with low-owned players if you please, football gods

  7. Shark Team

    1 year, 2 days ago

    Can't understand why Kun Aguero isn't the captain of ManCity and it's Sterling. I don't say that Raz doesn't deserves it but Aguero is a legend...

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      There’s talk of Sterling being England captain.

      I suppose it doesn’t matter if you’re a legend though, the captain role is a functional thing, not an honorary one

    2. sully29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Depends on what their personalities are like, I suppose. Being a legend doesn't automatically make someone the most natural captain.

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Maybe something between Kun and Pep? I have no idea if Sterling is some kind of leader in the dressing room. Or if there even can be any.

    4. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Agueros can only order kebabs in English

      1. Ronniie
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Oh the language haha

      2. Shark Team
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Hahahahaha maybe this is the reason!

    5. Ronniie
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 days ago

      I would never understand this. I don’t see anything in Sterling’s attitude to suggest he’s a better captain option than Agüero.

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

        I doubt you know enough about either of them to make that statement.

        1. Ronniie
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 days ago

          Fair enough

    6. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Kun is a shy guy, he is certainly not captain material. Sterling sets a pretty good example these days on and off the pitch, still surprised terling captain though. Fernandinho makes sense

    7. Leif Erikson-Formerly of La…
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Just because you're a club legend doesn't make you captain material. Apparently not an excellent trainer but turns it on for the match day - Hardly inspiring for the younger lads.

    8. MikeBravo
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      The only captain their is KDB.

      1. MikeBravo

    Currently on 1 pt from 3 players with no show Foden.

    I hate this season

    1. grumpyman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’d be happy with a 30 minute sub appearance or no show, hooeflly no 5 minute cameo.

      Ouch

  9. Hy liverpool
    • 7 Years

    Can someone tell why the hell sterling is city captain when the best player in city's history on the pitch? Have i missed something?

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Best player doesn’t mean you’re captain

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        What sterling have that aguero doesn't have? Leadership? I don't think so
        May be aguero's english is the reason

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          How do you know what Sterlings leadership is like day to day in training or on match days?

        2. JIMMY764
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          How do you know anything about the leadership abilities of either of those players lol.

          1. Hy liverpool
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 2 days ago

            I don't know that’s why i'm asking, you can tell me

            1. JIMMY764
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 2 days ago

              We’ll I’m not part of the first team set up at Man City in any capacity. I also don’t know either player personally, so yeah I have no idea. Pep Guardiola probably knows what he’s doing tbf though.

              1. Hy liverpool
                • 7 Years
                1 year, 2 days ago

                I saw "Guardiola Tells Aguero to Prove Himself for a New Manchester City Deal" last week so i thought it's stupid thing to do but it looks like he knows what he is doing tbf.

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

            His antics with Gomez last year is enough to conclude that he's not captain material

    2. Stupendous
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      The best player in our history went to Real Sociedad a few months ago.

      The second best player in our history is called Colin Bell.

      Sergio isn't captain material either.

      Tbh neither is Raz imo

      1. Ronniie
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Why Silva > Agüero. Sentiments?

    3. FPL.team
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      What does that matter? Henderson is captain of Liverpool.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        At least he is a true leader and we know why he is liverpool's captain? Not sure about sterling, that's why i'am asking

        1. FPL.team
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          He's become a bit of a role model outside of City with anti racism so he definitely has some leadership in him. Pep works with him every day so he'd know best.

      Liverpool fan insulting Sterling, checks out.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        I'm not insulting raz, i just didn't understand but it looks like city fans know the reasons

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          I’m kinda with you here. I think City lack leadership when KdB isn’t playing. Rodri seems quiet, Laporte too.

          Maybe Gundogan would make a good choice if he could stay fit.

        2. noquarternt
          • 6 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          Maybe he’s got great leadership skills. I guess he’s jaded by how the media treat him so doesn’t talk much to the cameras and journalists which restricts our insight.

          I think they’re right that Aguero’s English skills aren’t as strong as what you’d expect from a captain though.

    5. Shark Team
      • 4 Years

      Man we thought the same thing the same time (above comm)

      1. Hy liverpool

    C covers fixtures quite well in rotation with Lamptey.

    1. ElliotJHP

      Leeds boys rotate quite well too I think.

      I'm looking at A at the moment.

      Think I'd be inclined to go Dallas out of those 3. Looking at going up to Chilwell or down to Dallas myself. Depends what I decide to do with my second transfer.

  17. Threat Level Midnight

    • 3 Years
    1 year, 2 days ago

    Robbo or TAA
    Mo/KDB/Bruno or Rashford
    Kun/Banford/Antonio

    Feels like the optimal base lineup with differentials in a few gameweeks. Spurs fixtures turn for the worse and no possible way they keep up this form.

    Thoughts?

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Some good Chelsea fixtures coming up?

    Glad I made the move on KdB. Even with him fit, it looks like Kane offers similar/better output for less.

    Must admit, was worried about him starting this one.

      KDB to Grealish for a hit didn't really work out well for me but atleast it funded Wilson to Kane for this week

        Yep, live KdB but 11.5m goes far.

    Dias looks a bargain for City's good run of fixtures. Semado to Dias fits nicely.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      You can get attacking threat from Reguilon, Chilwell, Telles, and maybe Samedo for around 5.5m though.

      1. Nomar
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Chilwell definitely.

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          He’s my no. 1 transfer target this week, for James. Could be pursuaded by Telles though.

          1. Nomar
            • 11 Years
            1 year, 2 days ago

            Mine as well. Got 2 FT so one of them will be Doherty to Chilwell.

      Exact same switch to be made on GW10

    Who do we think takes pens for City when Aguero and KDB are on the pitch?

    1. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Kevin still

    2. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Aguero

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Aguero

    4. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Wouldn’t surprise me if it’s Aguero.

    5. noquarternt
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Aguero I’d guess unless he’s done something wrong in the last 6 months?

    6. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Aguero

    7. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Foden

  25. Nomar
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 days ago

    Yay, two more of my players dropped in value last night, TAA and Mahrez.

    Three actually, cos Podence did too, but he’s dropped back to £5.5m so I haven’t lost any value on him yet.

  26. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 days ago

    Fun fact.

    Patrick Bamford plays the piano and violin, speaks french and once turned down a place at Harvard Uni.

    All round baller.

      I thought surely not, but wow

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      He has such a punchable face though haha

    3. Bruce Lee
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      No left foot though

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        No right foot.

    4. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Talented man.

      I’m trying to teach myself to play piano, so I admire people who can play it fluently.

      1. Aston VII iia hahaha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        I gave it up after 10 years.

      2. Aston VII iia hahaha
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        I'd rather play video games

    5. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Smarter than Kane then!

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Yep, breathes through his nose.

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

    Would you be comfortable starting Bamford week in week out?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Yes

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        When Spurs fixtures turn, that downgrade from Kane (while still keeping Son) almost enables KDB in over Podence

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      I’ve been starting pereira week in week out - disaster

      1. SpoonPants
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        He is on pace for 8 goals, 8 assists for the season. Is that really a disaster for 6 mil?

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      If I own him then yeah surely, any nailed attacker has to be started this season(Ofc besides someone like Brewster)

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 days ago

        Not Brewster? Even if he nails the spot down?

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 2 days ago

          He's a decent option to have off the bench but definitely not someone I would want to start week in week out

    4. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Leeds seem to play one way every game so why not.

    5. Nomar
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 days ago

      Yep.

      Plays for Leeds.

      This is like asking two seasons ago if you’d play Jiminez every week.

      I posted last night that I’m not sure why people were overlooking Bamford. He plays for a Leeds side that will create loads of chances and is nailed on.

      I jumped on when he was £5.6m as soon as I realised he was nailed on. Absolute steal at that amount and perfect 3rd striker and starts every week for me.

      He’ll blank plenty of times, but the value really is there.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I've started him 6 gameweeks in a row. No worries.

  28. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Feel like my team will look something like this in a few GWs

    Martinez
    Robbo - Dias - Masuaku
    Mane - KDB/Sterling - Rodriguez - Soucek
    DCL - Aguero - Antonio

  29. SM001
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 days ago

    Here's hoping Declan Rice upends Silva after 10mins and KDB comes on and does the business.

    I've been loyal with KDB and Auba. Time to ditch?

    The thing that has done Foden in is Bernardo coming back in from the cold.
