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′).

          I had a stinker GW3 where I ranked 5.8m overall that week. Following 2 weeks I scored 101 and 90 which took me from 1mil to top 50k and managed some slight gains last few weeks

      Can't say I really like any of the Jimenez replacements.

    2. Magic Zico

      What about Bowen Martial?

        I don't mind this.

    Thoughts on Sterling + Pereira > Bale(C) + Ziyech Free?

    1. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      No. Why would you want to captain Bale?

      1. waldo666
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Or even bring him in for that matter...

        1. Nice to Finally Michu
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          Differential vs West brom is my thought. I can afford Son at the same price so if the issue is bale i'm open to suggestion

          1. waldo666
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 25 days ago

            He probably won't even start and might not see any game time at all. Definitely get Son, no question.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      No

    3. FPL_trail_runner

      I wouldnt

    4. Kip
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      I got rid of Bale. He looks unmotivated and doesnt put his shift in.
      Will be supersub at best imo

    5. Danno - Emre Canada

      Joking yeah? I look fitter than Bale at the moment. Watch him tear it up tomorrow ha

    Its worth to sell Salah for Rashford?I didn't like his performance today and i won't captain him for the next four games.

    1. Danstoke82
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Even if Salah has an off performance he could still haul. Hard to get him back if you lose him. Personally, I’d keep but that’s just my opinion

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Salah more consistant but Rashford might soon be good pick.

    3. waldo666
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Rashford looks a terrific buy but not at the expense of Salah I don't think.

    Saiss ➡

    A) Zouma
    or
    B) Creswell
    ..?

    1. tafrère
      • 5 Years

      Both are good options imo, I'd say Zouma though.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B

  7. tafrère

    28 pts from 3, could be 36 pts from 4 if Podence comes off my bench. Finally a Gameweek that seems to go my way. Could be my first GW rank inside the top 2M of the season lmao. Brutal.

  8. FDMS All Starz

    How do I use my transfers? TAA out?

    McCarthy
    TAA - Justin. - Targett
    Salah - Son - Bruno - Podence

    2. bitars

      Trent out and get two new good defenders.

    Saiss > Coufal

    Yay or Nay? The rumour of that injury to Cresswell concerns me and I want a nailed WHU defender v Fulham.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Cresswell injured? Will wait till close to deadline

      1. Danstoke82
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Wanted to wait but this move also involves me doing Brewster > Bamford and with Bamford’s price rising tonight if I get Cresswell it has to be tonight

    2. Vazza

      Why not consider Zouma?

      1. Danstoke82

        10 months, 25 days ago

        Got Chilwell

    Evening,

    Anyone else thinking jota is worth a shout? Can't go wrong at that price surely

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      He’s been fantastic when he’s played so far
      Can’t help feel he’s similar to Foden in the sense of price and what he brings to the team but not nailed so you’ll have to put up with the sometimes start sometimes 20 min cameos

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        But everytime.he is on even as a cameo he seems hungry. I would bet he gets more minutes than foden

        1. Wılly
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          He won't score every time he comes on for a cameo though. If he didn't score today, you wouldn't be thinking this.
          He's likely to come on every game for Liverpool though in my opinion.

          I'm weighing him up as a possibility vs. Bowen.

            This isnmy thought....the mid price range and load up on a 5 mand midfield

  13. FPL_trail_runner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Think im looking at these for a -4

    Saiss to Chilwell
    Antonio to Kane (c)
    Sterling to Zaha

    Meslier
    Robertson TAA Chilwell Kilman
    Zaha Hamez Son Salah
    Dcl Kane

    4M Ayling

    Liverpool defence will have to wait some more weeks to be fixed. Maybe by then will be okish

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Are you happy to keep Kane afterwards for their “tougher run”?
      I’m actually tempted to ditch soon to fix other holes

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        i'd only lose Kane if he gets injured really, or has an incredible drop in form. He is fixture proof
        There might be case for losing one of son and kane, buth both? I'll wait and see on that, everyone concedes this season, Spurs can win any fixture

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          It’s a fair point. I have both spurs and just looking at options as I have Saiss Foden Taylor. Might just lose Jimenez to help fund. Ideally when we get concrete news on Antonio

      2. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Ideally i was holding out to not get him

        Its just he is still ticking over and my money elsewhere ( Sterling) is not matching him in anyway, next week he is the go to captain

        Im 50:50 really

        But the dream team mid + forwards are pretty consistent so far

        None of that front 6 has not blanked for more than 2 games in a row, few have only blanked once

        Its hard to ignore . Also Kane could become Ageuro i guess

        1. HMC

          • 11 Years

          Not sure we can trust Aguero to stay fit anymore
          Having a Chelsea and/or United attacker will become important too just a matter of picking one and staying the course

            Yes true

            Its looking like one can do well without liverpool defence and City attack this year

            Rather annoyed to find my early excel draft with teams moves planned up to week 10 where I had backed Spurs over City.

            Alas, didnt so it in reality and kept Sterling over Kane until now

              Yet I can’t bring myself to move out Robbo just yet

  14. Sanchit
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Werner or Ziyech?
    Ziyech passed the eye test but not the stat test. His goal was his only shot and his assist was his only key pass.

    1. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Werner looked lethal. Very dangerous on the wing.

  15. timawflowers
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Hi, who to bring in for jiminez and hames?
    A - Zieych and Ings
    B - Zaha and werner

    1. Z
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      I have B

      1. timawflowers
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Thanks, who is your capt next week

        1. Z
          • 4 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          To be honest i am thinking about Werner...but it will be Son (as this gw)

          1. timawflowers
            • 3 Years
            10 months, 25 days ago

            Yeah I'm thinking kane or werner if I bring him in

    2. Mile Plankton
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      I own Zaha and I wouldn't be buying him now.
      Schedule looks promissing, but Palace is quite poor.
      Also wouldn't go for Ziyech after one game.

  16. Champions League Varane
    • 2 Years

    Any chance Pulisic will be ok?

    1. Ron_Swanson
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Yeah he will recover

      1. n14mul
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        And then get injured again

    2. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Scan tomorrow, will be confirmed either way.

      Although Lamps was slightly misleading at the start of the season on how long he was likely to be out for, or Pulisic relapsed / took longer than expected to return.

      1. Wılly
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Expect the worst, you don't just fall over and get ruled out for weeks

    3. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Asked for an update on Pulisic after the final whistle, Chelsea boss Lampard said: ‘He felt a little something in his hamstring. ‘He’s frustrated because he’s worked so hard to get fit. ‘He’s played three games, we’ve tried to manage him in the week and it’s a small feeling in his hamstring so we’ll have to see how he is over the next 24 hours.’ Lampard added: ‘Hopefully it’s short term, we’re talking weeks.

    Early thoughts what to so before next week? 1FT and 1.6 ITB.

    Martinez
    Robo/Reguilon/Chilwell
    Salah/Son/Hamez/Grealish
    Kane/DCL/Bamford

    Martin/Kilman/Mitchell/Stephens

    1. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Could probably save FT?

      1. Z
        • 4 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Team is rly good. But i am not sure can u aford 7m deff¹ that cant get CS. Especialy when Regulion is not 100% nailed

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          Yeah thinking about moving Robo while will keep Reg till WBA game

  18. mr. inconspicuous
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Which player is top priority to replace -

    1 Saiss
    2 Mitchell
    3 Trossard

    1. Kip
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Saiss

    2. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      1 or 2, at least 3 starts. Trossard could be good this week tbh

    3. Z
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Saiss

  19. Jurgen Flopp
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Do Jimenez, Sterling, Klich to Werner, Rashford, Bowen look like good moves?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Not until Thursday.

  20. Sean
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Robbo, Saiss Pulisic, in what order do I get rid of these over the next couple GWs?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 4 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      1. Saiss
      2. Pulisic
      3. Robbo

      1. Sanchit
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        +1

        1. Sean
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          Cheers

      2. Wılly
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 25 days ago

        Take a hit with 1 and 2

        1. Sean
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 25 days ago

          Think it may have to be done, so frustrating as had 2FT yesterday and used them to enabe JRod to Pulisic

          1. Wılly
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 25 days ago

            Likewise, I could have done Bale and Pulisic to something juicy. What's your plan for Pulisic now?

  21. ZoumasBloomers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights
    • 4 Years

    Salah captainers out there - would you stick or twist now given the choice?

    1. Sean
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Think you have to stick with any goalscoring captain right?

    2. HollywoodXI
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Stick

    3. Steve The Spud

    5. MagicMessi
      • 9 Years

      Take the points and run this season is crazy and hope Kan/son to score too

    6. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Stick, albeit had hoped for something else in 2nd half

    Thoughts on some rather aggressive move like Robo to WH def before next week?

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Decent way to free up funds but I'm happy to keep Robbo.

  30. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    10 months, 25 days ago

    Stupidly brought Pulisic in this week and burned immediately.

    A) Hold
    B) Puli > Zaha (had planned Saiss > Coufal)

    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Lamptey
    Salah Son Grealish Pulisic*
    Kane DCL Bamford

    steer soucek mitchell saiss

    1. Wılly
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Wasn't a stupid decision to bring in Pulisic, he was named on the teamsheet. It was unfortunate what happened to him but I'd look for a replacement.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Maybe hold because you've got Soucek against Fulham.

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 25 days ago

      Not stupid, just unlucky. I’d wait till we hear about the results of the scan, then decide. Good first sub if you need to hold tho.
