The Scout Academy discusses which FPL players to pick from Manchester City

Manchester City are usually an easy team to invest in for Fantasy Premier League managers but this season they have proved a trickier prospect.

The 2020/21 campaign has, admittedly, not been kind to Pep Guardiola’s men with Sergio Aguero (£10.4m), Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m), Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m), Benjamin Mendy (£6.0m), Nathan Ake (£5.5m), and Fernandinho (£5.5m) all missing out with injuries at various stages.

And let’s not forget that Riyad Mahrez (£8.4m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.4m) tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) within the last few months, so it is no surprise things have not been plain sailing for Manchester City.

We asked members of the Scout Academy to give us their thoughts on what to do with their assets in the coming Gameweeks.

FPL In The Dug Out

Mahrez starts for Man City as Leeds deploy FPL defender out of position

Manchester City pictured in their game against Leicester City in September

While there have been issues for Manchester City so far, I think they are starting to ease up, mostly in midfield. The recent return of De Bruyne really bolsters their attacking potential and, my view is that Sterling will benefit playing as a false-nine, as well as being safer from Pep Roulette until Jesus is fit again.

The fixtures are nicer than they look too. Sheffield United are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and, after that, it’s Liverpool, who have been defending poorly for a while anyway, even before they lost Virgil van Dijk (£6.4m) to injury.

If you can cope with the possibility of rotation, I think the best value could be in Phil Foden (£6.6m). I think it’s only a matter of time before Manchester City explode with goals – I will be looking to invest especially with the lack of clean sheets in the Premier League so far.

Sergio Aguero

We hold Sterling currently and now that Aguero is injured once more, we expect Sterling to play as a false-nine where he had two great chances vs West Ham.

The Englishman will need the creativity of De Bruyne and Foden behind him though to break through the stubborn defensive line-ups they are having to come up against. Foden is great value though if you can handle the possible rotation.

Cancelo and Sterling Celebrate a Champions League goal for Man City last season

My choice for Man City is a defensive one in João Cancelo (£5.4m), priced at just £5.4 he got an assist in Manchester City’s 1-1 draw with West Ham.

The full-back looked very attacking during the game, getting forward a lot and registering five crosses and two key passes. He also put up 24 passes in the final third with seven touches inside the box.

This shows just how much he manages to get forward, very good on the eye test with Sheffield United up next.

If Manchester City can sort out their defensive problems, which the return of Laporte should help facilitate, we could see value at both ends of the field for Cancelo.

How De Bruyne's new Man City role affects his FPL credentials this season

Kevin De Bryune scores a penalty against Wolves

Manchester City’s start to this season has not been promising. The lack of creativity in the midfield and injuries has really hampered their attacking output.

That said, I am still excited about the prospect of Sterling playing at false-nine for the next couple of weeks before Jesus comes back.

Other options include De Bruyne who should now be fit to start, Foden a differential pick but there’s a risk of rotation and Cancelo whose numbers over the last two matches look decent: two attempts on goal, five key passes and had 10 touches in the box.

Now the question arises whether is it really necessary to get in a Manchester City player the answer according to me is to wait and watch the game against Sheffield and then decide.

With the likes of Kane, Son, Mane, Salah and the other premium players looking in good form it really will cause trouble again to fit in a premium Manchester City asset.

FPL Hangover Podcast

Phil Foden celebrates scoring for Manchester City

Manchester City have yet to hit the form we know they’re capable of with regards to both league perfomance and FPL returns. However, after a tough run of fixtures, coupled with injuries to crucial players, it’s not all doom and gloom.

We saw the return of De Bruyne in Gameweek 6 and, while Aguero may have succumbed to yet another injury, the kindly-priced Jesus is also not far from a return to action.

This sees them possibly returning to a starting XI that put Wolves to the sword in Gameweek 2 and where De Bruyne, Foden, Sterling and Jesus all got in among the attacking returns.

Combine this with a lovely run of fixtures between Gameweeks 10 and 15 and it’s not difficult to make a case for some Manchester City assets in our squads.

This also coincides with the a very nasty run of fixtures for the heavily owned and similarly priced Spurs assets. Any FPL managers that are trying to stay ahead of the curve may well look to a Spurs/Man City switcheroo.

FPL Talking Points

WHUMCI dd

Foden, Sterling and Aguero discuss a conceded goal for Manchester City

Hot Take #1: Manchester City have peaked. Every year they seem to lose more big names than they bring in. Their strikers can’t stay fit. We all know that Pep seems to get jaded and bored after a few seasons. Their attacking numbers are falling off a very steep cliff.

Hot Take # 2: Manchester City are a ticking time bomb of FPL points absolutely waiting to explode the moment we forget about them. It appears that a ridiculously good run in fixtures starting in Gameweek 10 will coincide with a return into the side for Jesus (depending on how we interpret his own Twitch Live stream).

The truth is likely somewhere in the middle. In fact, literally in the midfield. Poor value in defence and unreliable strikers means that the Manchester City midfielders will be our only options in the near-term. It will only take a few hauls from De Bruyne to remind us how much of a season-keeper he is. Couple that with a few blanks from the Spurs men, and we will be ripping up our template very quickly. Simply put, Kevin is the only Man City player I am considering until their Double Gameweek is confirmed.

    This is a message for Nuno Espírito Santo as I’m sure he’s active on this forum:

    Nuno should I get rid of saiss? He’s been exceptional so far but it looks like you’re about to drop him. Are you?

    On the unlikely chance Nuno doesn’t see this, anyone else could let me know thoughts too.

    Cheers!

      I would keep him until he loses his place. He’s racking up some decent scores atm

        Thank you for the reply. Totally agree with you (and I also think wolves will get a cleanie on Friday) but I am v concerned - the signs are there that he could be dropped... and wolves forums been calling for his head for a few weeks now...

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I highly doubt Nuno reads or cares about the Wolves fan forums’ opinions about his team selections.

            He really should. they're the bullets when the firing squad are called.
            Not saying he's getting fired , but managers who are fired will often find the reasons why painted all over the fan pages, months before. Clubs do pay attention to them

            He only heeds Facebook comments apparently.

              I wasn't referring to the joke in my comment (which is about Nuno reading FFS), I was referring to comments on Wolves fan forums, which apparently predominantly want Saiss to be benched.

      You know Espirito Santo is the Holy Spirit? Just saying like! Hopefully he'll visit you in his celestial presence and you can post here what he says. I have Saiss to and holding on for now.

                Sure if you've 3 nailed on defenders get Kilman but for TAA. Robbo in better form and saves some cash.

          Martinez
          TAA Robbo Ayling
          Salah Son Pulisic Trossard
          Jimenez DCL Watkins

          Button Soucek Taylor Lewis 0.9itb

          Trossard to 6.9 mid? DCL to Ings? Worth getting in a ManCity mid over Pulisic? Will still keep Trent and Robbo.

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            Trossard to Foden.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 8 hours ago

              That's a good option and that way i can keep Pulisic, cheers.

                • 1 Year
                27 days, 7 hours ago

                I wish I could afford this move with Podence, but only got 6.3 for the 5th mid. Maybe this is more pressing than DCL to Ings

          2. Abra Dubravka
            • 1 Year
            27 days, 8 hours ago

            I like it. Also like the DCL to Ings punt although without Rodriguez, no Everton may be a concern

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 8 hours ago

              Yeah DCL not my biggest concern, just don't think Everton will perform as a team with so many injuries/suspensions.

                • 9 Years
                27 days, 7 hours ago

                He scored a nice few last season with a much lesser team than now. I'm hoping to hold him until GW9 and hopefully missing players return by then after IB.

          Best max 5.3 defender to play along with Chilwell Saiss Lamptey Mithchell (and Martinez in goal)
          A) Zouma - double Chelsea
          B) Cresswell or other WHU
          C) Kilman for cash-but risk
          D) KWP or other SOU

            I like the look of Cresswell, either him or a cheap 4.5

              Coufal offers better value than Cresswell

            • 4 Years

            Kilman a good option along with Saiss as it should guarantee you at least one Wolves defender at LCB

            Will Podence play from the first minute this GW?
            I want to do: Podence to Foden. Yesterday Foden played the whole game and that could be a bad sign.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 7 hours ago

              He will probably play 2/3 or 3/4 games. No reason not to get him now as he only played 45 against West Ham.

            2. Dirtymeercat666
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              27 days, 7 hours ago

              Nobody knows, but I would’ve thought Podence would start.

              And yep could be a bad sign, but equally foden could start. This is how it will be if you go for him

            3. St Pauli Walnuts
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              Foden didn't start previous two though, so wouldn't expect him to be rested. Also played decent when he has been on lately.

              I'm a Podence owner to (that's worked out great eh!) and concerned Traore will get his spot this GW, he hasn't started in ages.

            Folks, Zaha or Pulisic ?

              Zaha on current form but hopefully Pulisic near match fitness and will start racking up the points.

            So kilman is not nailed?
            He's recent games are amazing

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              27 days, 7 hours ago

              I think it is his spot to lose, Saiss more at risk

                27 days, 7 hours ago

                Saiss could easily still start at LWB. Nuno never likes to throw new signings straight into the starting 11 so can see Marcal being eased in

                  • 4 Years
                  27 days, 7 hours ago

                  He could and probably will but if Marcal comes in I think it is at LWB which would put Saiss under more immediate risk than Kilman

            A. Jimenez to Kane for free and start a defense of :

            Semedo - Saiss** - Mitchell** (with a bench of Lamptey and Reece James**)

            OR

            Not too pleased with my team so far so im planning on wildcarding during the upcoming international break. Who are the essential players to have I for the run up to Christmas with fixtures also in mind. Everton and Manchester United seem the ones with nice fixtures so Fernandes Digne DCL seem obvious choices. Thoughts??

              Bit of City and West Ham too and can keep any Villa or Palace you might already have.

          • Ninjaa

            Current front 8
            Salah Son Podence Jwp fodder
            Aguero DCL Adams

            Obviously Aguero the priority to get out but for who???. Money no object.

            Do we think Liverpool continue to play 4231?

            Thus, making Jota an option?

            Looking for a Barnes replacement...

              • 3 Years

              Still too early to say. With no CBs they might go a bit more conservative.

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                27 days, 7 hours ago

                Possibly Henderson will fill in there. That's less risky with Allison playing but not ideal.

              • 9 Years

              Good question. Also questions at the back with Van Dijk and Fabinho out and Matip is a doubt.

                    With the rest of options available, yes. Both good options in isolation though.
