Cancelo stars for City as Sheff Utd’s weak right-side bodes well for Chelsea

Sheff Utd 0-1 Man City

  • Goals: Kyle Walker (£6.0m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£11.5m)
  • Bonus points: Walker x3, João Cancelo x2 (£5.4m), Aymeric Laporte x1 (£6.0m)

CANCELO CULTURE

João Cancelo (£5.4m) is fast-becoming the key Manchester City defender ahead of their fixture swing in Gameweek 10 as he starred in a 1-0 win over Sheffield United.

While Kyle Walker (£6.0m) emerged with a 15-point haul, thanks to his spectacular first-half goal, it was Pep Guardiola’s left-back who suggested more sustainable output.

Since making his first Premier League start at that position in Gameweek 5, Cancelo is yet to blank, averaging seven points per game.

In that time, the Portuguese international has collected two clean sheets and, even though he has only managed to provide one assist, that has not been for lack of trying.

In the first half alone against the Blades, Cancelo created more chances than any Manchester City defender in a Premier League match since February 2012. That impressive tally was a big reason why he was able to secure two bonus points despite registering no attacking returns.

DEFENSIVE CONSISTENCY

However, Fantasy managers may still want to hold off before going all-in on Cancelo or anyone from the Manchester City defence.

They face Liverpool (home) and Spurs (away) in the next two Gameweeks, two sides that are likely to be hard to contain.

Gameweek 10 looks like the time swoop for Cancelo, with home matches against Burnley, Fulham and West Bromwich Albion between then and Gameweek 13.

Waiting until then may also help Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) and Ruben Dias (£5.5m) settle into together as a centre-back duo.

The trip to Sheffield United was only the second time this season that Guardiola has been able to start the two players but there is plenty of promise about having the two of them together.

2019/20 was a sub-standard year for the Citizens in terms of defensive returns, and their manager has already highlighted that consistency at centre-back will make a big difference this season.

“(Laporte + Dias) are both playing really well. They are guys to give us consistency. We struggle a lot last year to have two central defenders (every week). This year, we will need everyone because these amount of games it is impossible to play both every game.” – Pep Guardiola

FRIGHT RIGHT

Cancelo and Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) were afforded a considerable amount of freedom on Saturday, as they made the most of Sheffield United’s weak right flank.

Between Gameweeks 1 and 6, the Blades conceded more chances down their side of the pitch than any other team in the Premier League and that trend continued at Bramall Lane.

As you can see from the match data breakdown, there was an uneven spread of opportunities given up by Chris Wilder’s men. They allowed 10 chances, of which 70% were constructed on the right-hand side.

While Sheffield United’s problems here may have helped Cancelo’s numbers, they bare more Fantasy relevance when examining the Gameweek 8 fixtures.

The Blades travel to Chelsea next weekend and, if Wilder has done little to shore up George Baldock‘s (£5.3m) side of the pitch by that point, we could see Ben Chilwell (£5.9m) and Timo Werner (£9.3m) take advantage.

FRONT AND CENTRE

Ferran Torres (£6.9m) can consider himself unfortunate not to have left Bramall Lane without some attacking returns.

Having netted as a centre-forward in the Champions League midweek, Manchester City’s number 21 was given a chance to reprise that role in Gameweek 7.

“It’s a new position for him but he did it well (against Marseilles). We have other people in the middle but the striker position is the most difficult one. He did really well and we try again.” – Pep Guardiola

Torres was the chief beneficiary of Cancelo’s marauding runs and incessant chance creation, as he had three golden chances to score during the game, Aaron Ramsdale (£4.9m) proving equal to him each time.

However, whether the £6.9m midfielder can offer long-term appeal as an out-of-position asset remains to be seen, with Gabriel Jesus (£9.3m) closing in on a return to fitness.

That should, hopefully, mean an end to Sterling having to deputise up-front as well. He was tasked with that role in the final 10 minutes of Gameweek 7 as Phil Foden (£6.6m) came on for Torres.

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Stevens, Egan, Basham; Lowe (McGoldrick 81′), Osborn (Lundstram 55′), Ampadu (Norwood 65′), Berge, Baldock; Brewster, McBurnie.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; Rodrigo, De Bruyne, B Silva; Sterling, Torres (Foden 81′), Mahrez (Gündogan 85′).

    Draft transfer request.
    Pogba for Klich.
    Keep Klich?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Sorry not sure how draft works, but given £/points I’d much prefer Klich, on pens too

  2. Gandalf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Which do you prefer
    A. Havertz > Ziyech
    B. Jiménez > Werner

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      B

    2. sthelenslad92
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      B

    3. Garth Marenghi
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      A

    4. Seanigula
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      If Ziy plays regularly I think he’ll be much better value than Werner...and getting rid of Havertz is more important then getting rid of Jimi (though I’d also move away from him)

    5. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      A seems a bit sideways.. Ziyech had 1 shot and 1 chance created

    6. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      B

  3. Bookkeeper
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Midfielders on the watchlist for GW8 onwards
    Ziyech
    Zaha
    KDB
    Foden
    Bowen

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Still like Foden?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I do, he’s come off the bench the past 2 and started the previous games, doesn’t that mean he should start the next 2-3?

        Or does Pep Roulette not work like that?

        1. Seanigula
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          I don’t think there is a pattern, too many variables, and Torres looked good

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Ah ok

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Although is it more dependent on Mahrez? And I’ve heard he’s not been great

            1. Seanigula
              • 12 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              I thought he played on the opposite side...but things will also change when Aguero is back...I’m not sure anyone knows Pep’s thinking, but they also aren’t scoring a bunch lately

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 4 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                Yup!

      2. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        he'll get you attacking returns once every two games. At 6.6m it's good value.
        you'll be paying more to get Chelsea attacker who will also get you a return every two games.

    2. Seanigula
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      not Foden

      1. Hansel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        I agree

    3. Seanigula
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      The guy who scored for West Ham today looked good

      1. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        at 6.4m, it's not a bad shout, only you need the patience of a saint if you going to get him in!

        1. Seanigula
          • 12 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          2 goals and 3 assists in 7 games...though I’d worry about the current lack of a striker, Haller didn’t look good

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            i'd consider him, only i'm not a patient FPL player as he returns points every two games!

            1. Seanigula
              • 12 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              Everyone on your list does the same...even KDB lately...and Bowen is even worse

              1. Bookkeeper
                • 4 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                Zaha has had 5 returns out of 7. I'll go with him. Avoiding Chelsea.

  4. sthelenslad92
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 24 days ago

    Thinking of getting rid of TAA, Pulisic & Brewster for -4. Would you go for:

    A) Coufal, Podence & Kane
    B) Cancelo, Bowen & Werner
    C) Cancelo, Ziyech & Adams

    Rest of my squas looks like this
    Martinez - Steer
    _____ - Chilwell - Reguilon - Lamptey - Dallas
    Salah - Son _____ - Rodriguez - Grealish
    _____ - DCL - Bamford

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Couf, bow, kane

      1. sthelenslad92

        Can't afford those 3

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      Zouma, Soucek, Kane

      Happy with the rotation risk with Reguilon?

    3. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 24 days ago

      B but maybe Couf, Zaha, Werner or Ings?

        Both look great but think I prefer B

      3. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        B for me

      4. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        How confident are you Ziyech is nailed?

        1. 2OLEgend
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Not that confident tbh. Good point. Might go with B and Ings. Thanks

        3. KAPTAIN KANE

          Just Ferguson to Kilman and save the other

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Are you not worried about getting Zaha before he plays...if he gets injured...the transfer will look silly.

        5. MessiGOAT
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          No man don't do it wait till the weekend you'll change your mind 100%

      6. Ray In Bruges.
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Bottomed.

        McCarthy (Nyland)
        TAA Kilman Justin (Mitchell, KWP)
        Fernandes JRod Grealish Son (ASM)
        Jimenez Ings DCL

        2FT, 2.3ITB

        Any obvious moves here? Thinking TAA + Jimenez > Chilwell + Werner

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          They look decent transfers tbf. I'm personally not keen on selling Trent but those transfers could work.

      7. Niho992
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Bottomed...

        Trent to Coufal for free? Can afford Chelsea defender but also want to upgrade Barnes with Hamez and Mitrovic with Richa with 2 FTs after IB. Thoughts?

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Not sure I'd ditch Trent

          1. Niho992
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Why not? 7.4 seems so expensive imo

          2. Seanigula
            • 12 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            I would...Liv are getting 2 goals a game...how much could TAA possibly start scoring if he magically comes good?

            1. Niho992
              • 2 Years

      9. Bookkeeper
        • 4 Years

        This GW may well end with TAA with the most crosses into the box than any other defender. Due?

        1. BrockLanders
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          He'll haul soon.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 4 Years

          You know it, and he’ll get more space to run into away at City...

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            lacking the quality in delivery, it will arrive at some point. I'm not an owner, those who do have him may have a dilemma on their hands.

            1. BrockLanders
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              He offers more than enough threat for me to keep

      10. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 24 days ago

        Might ditch JRod for Ziyech on free transfer.

        Good shout?

              Could be, I actually sold him myself this gameweek for Grealish (bought at 7.5 as well), already want him back lol.

          What 5.0mil and under defender should I get in for next gameweek? Instead of Saiss

            Depending on your bench I would consider James

            Jack Grealesh

        • Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 24 days ago

          Thoughts on Zaha vs. Grealish for the next few?

          - Think Zaha edges it on fixtures (LEE, BUR, NEW, WBA vs. ARS, BHA, WHU, NEW)
          - Villa almost certainly a better team (averaging 14 shots per game vs. 8 for Palace)
          - Zaha on pens, Grealish unknown
          - Zaha higher xG and xGI, but Grealish better in terms of chance creation and other stats
          - Zaha involved in 75% of Palace goals this season vs. Grealish 50%
          - Both the same price, but Zaha close to rising

          Seems pretty borderline to me, anyone got any strong views?

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Zaha for me. Grealish holds the ball far too long and is shot shy.

          2. Toughie
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            How about Jota and save yourself almost a 1m

            If you still want zaha or Grealish, I don't think Grealish's fixtures are that good.. Ars & West ham are good in defence, Brighton aren't that bad either

            1. Seanigula
              • 12 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              I like Jota, but not sure he’ll play enough, especially while the CL group stage is happening

              1. Toughie
                • 5 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                He will get his fair share of games especially with the current form of firmino

                1. Bookkeeper
                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 24 days ago

                  He can get points coming off the bench. 2 baps today from playing 20mins.

            2. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Not nailed enough for me

          3. Seanigula
            • 12 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Zaha was terrible on Friday...didn’t take a shot for 60 minutes and finally ended with 1...I think Grealish is overhyped here as well, based on his 1 big haul

            1. Bookkeeper
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              Zaha has looked the sharpest i've seen him play in the league. Few times he troubled Wolves. Agree with you on Grealish.

              1. Seanigula
                • 12 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                I don’t know what you were watching...he mostly sat wide to the left...I didn’t think he threatened them at all...fumbled with the ball in the box a few times, but the only shot I saw from him was right into a defender

          4. MessiGOAT
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            Grealesh
            The first three t and can defend
            The second four teams attack so Grealesh on open play .. I Sold Zaha before this week for the same reason (with wolves)

            1. MessiGOAT
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              I personally will get Zaha back in the Newcastle game but Leeds and Burnley no

            He's never done anything when I've owned him. Good riddence

            1. Bookkeeper
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              current system doesn't suit him. Playing with Werner and Havertz who all like to make runs into the box. He's better playing off a big holding striker. Think that was the idea today with Abraham instead of Werner. You know what happened next!

              1. Wild Rover
                • 10 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                It was unlucky but he's so injury prone. I doubt he'll be fit for next week

                1. Bookkeeper
                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 24 days ago

                  suspected hamstring. ITB looming, can't see Lampard risking him. No need to, they have enough cover.

            Peter Sellers? Why would he do that? He only wanted to make people laugh.

          5. Seanigula
            • 12 Years
            7 months, 24 days ago

            He will never play enough to be worth bringing in...when could you possibly ever know that he’s ready to play? He’ll sit on your bench more then he plays...is it worth putting up with that for a 15 point haul at some point?

              Saiss to Zouma is the popular choice at the moment. With a possible price rise thrown in.

            Ziyech or Rodriguez? Ziyech looked so dangerous...

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              Ziyech looked like he played quite deep. I'm not sold yet.

              Thinking Werner will be the better pick, and may be on pens now.

            As Salah captainer i really want Kane and Son to score at this time of season I'm not competing I just want points and green arrows as many teams don't have Kane or son at all think am I right ?

            1. Twisted Saltergater
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              yep, most points as possible.

            2. wulfrunian
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 24 days ago

              You are wrong.58% in top10k captained Kane,Son the 19% and Salah a 15%.

              1. MessiGOAT
                • 8 Years
                7 months, 24 days ago

                I know but high percentage of game players don't own them so at least a tiny green arrow is better than blanking.. I mean the top 10 k there are tons that played chips tc etc so I don't think it's the true 10k yet

                1. wulfrunian
                  • 4 Years
                  7 months, 24 days ago

                  I was 1,1m in gw7 and now with 37 points and Salah(c) i am 700k.If Kane scores 8 points and Son 9 points the most possible thing is to have as you said a small green arrow.If both blank the most possible thing is to stay at the 700k.

                  1. Twisted Saltergater
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    7 months, 24 days ago

                    You're looking at it wrong. If you assume many of the top10k will not be there by the end of the season, then you want to distance yourself from players outside of the top 10k. All of your players returning points, does that.

                    1. wulfrunian
                      • 4 Years
                      7 months, 24 days ago

                      You mean that i might get a rise now but i won't close the gab?

                      This what I thought as I personally know players in top 100 and having done chips just they thought it's available every week !! I mean so new to the game that most definitely will drop quickly

                    3. wulfrunian
                      • 4 Years
                      7 months, 24 days ago

                      Maybe i am seeing it wrong.So 8 and 9 points from Son and Kane would be good for me but not 15 and 16?

                      1. Twisted Saltergater
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 11 Years
                        7 months, 24 days ago

                        At this stage of the season, I'd still say you want your players to score as many as possible regardless of top 10k EO. The reason being overall rank is still in so much flux.

                I’d guess not until after the IB...then he’ll get eased in...and eventually probably re-injure himself

              considering getting Kane and Werner.

              Bowen worth a punt with fixtures.

                Thanks, think I’ll hold off for now. Concerned Bamford’s price is going up though.
