Top 10k managers not yet sold on Man City assets as Gameweek 10 splits captaincy

The Gameweek 10 captaincy debate looks destined to cause a drastic re-shaping of the top 10,000 Fantasy Premier League managers.

That’s because there is no standout candidate for the armband this week, according to analysis on LiveFPL.net.

Rather than one or two individuals breaking away from the chasing pack, there is an unprecedented five-way split of similarly backed captains – which is sure to create serious rank movement at this level.

As you can see, Jamie Vardy (£10.2m) was the top 10k’s favourite for the armband ahead of a favourable home meeting with Fulham’s naive and obliging defence.

However, only 21.1% were happy backing the Leicester man, the rest perhaps swayed by the disparity between his home and away form (only one of his 10 attacking returns have come at the King Power Stadium this season) or maybe enticed by the array of other options.

Mohamed Salah‘s (£12.2m) midweek appearance, a first outing since returning from self-isolation, has convinced 16.1% of the top 10k that he can be trusted against Brighton.

Prior to his positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test, the Egyptian had returned in four of his previous five Premier League appearances.

But the recent double-figure haul from Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.8m), combined with Leeds’ recent drubbings, means that a further 15.7% chose the Everton man as captain.

Meanwhile, 14.7% went with away-day specialist Bruno Fernandes (£10.8m), with double-figure hauls in every road-trip this season and Harry Kane (£11.0m), despite facing Chelsea’s improved defence, still managed to attract 14.5% of the top 10k’s captain armbands.

The impact of such a concertinaed captaincy spread on effective ownership is fascinating too.

It means no player can boast a figure in this department over 100% for Gameweek 10, Calvert-Lewin going closest with 96.3%.

Once again, tough fixtures have not triggered a flash sale of Spurs assets among the top 10k, Kane and Son Heung-min (£9.5m) sitting inside the top three for effective ownership at this level.

What these figures mean is that Gameweek 10 is the perfect week to have tried something different, considering that going against the so-called “crowd” carries considerably less risk than usual. As a result, making such a decision carries a higher chance of bigger green arrows if successful.

It is particularly telling that no Manchester City player featured in the top five captains at this level, despite a favourable match-up with Burnley.

The Clarets have lost their last three trips to the Etihad Stadium (in all competitions), every time by a 5-0 scoreline.

If Kevin De Bruyne (£11.6m) benefits from Saturday afternoon’s outing, he will reward only a small number of captainers in the top 10k.

Just 6.6% of them felt confident enough to hand the Belgian their armband, while only 1.1% captained Raheem Sterling (£11.5m).

In fact, not a single Manchester City player appears in the template at this level yet, despite Pep Guardiola’s men embarking on their appealing fixture run this Gameweek.

After hosting Burnley, Manchester City welcome Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle to the Etihad Stadium between now and Gameweek 15, but only 19.5% of the top 10k are invested in De Bruyne, the Citizens most popular player among such managers.

Son, Fernandes remain the most fashionable premium options in midfield while Salah and Diogo Jota (£6.7m) are the movers and shakers, replacing Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m) and James Rodríguez (£7.9m) in the template.

Unsurprisingly, there was much less fluctuation among the defenders and forwards.

Calvert-Lewin has overtaken Kane as the most popular striker in the top 10k, now owned by 80% of them while the Spurs man saw his backing drop by a margin of 10 percentage points. 

Patrick Bamford (£6.1m) holds onto the third-place spot meaning Vardy remains outside the podium for top 10k ownership.

Meanwhile, the top-five defenders remain unchanged, with minimal shifts in top 10k ownership.

Just 23% of the managers in this rank bracket have gone chipless thus far in the campaign while 46.4% have deployed exactly one.

Interestingly, 2.3% of them have already exhausted their entire supply.

Once again, the Wildcard was the most popular chip for the latest Gameweek although it was used sparingly compared to the rest of the top 10k.

With 2.9% going for the Free Hit, 3.7% pulled the trigger on brand new squads for Gameweek 10.

Interestingly, those playing the Wildcard at this level have largely templated themselves to the overall selection picture, as you can see a large number of overlaps.

Despite the tougher fixtures, Son and Kane still feature heavily in these squads, as do Salah and Jota while João Cancelo (£5.5m) and Vardy are the big exceptions to the main template.

      Tough to call between Ziyech and Grealish. I feel Ziyech is more reliable, but I’d be more worried about selling Grealish (I own both)

    Just noticed De Bruyne is only 19% owned! 😮

    1. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Sterling less than 5%!

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Martial less than 4%!

        This could be the week I bounce from 3m up to sub 1m!

        A Jota brace and double Arse cleanie would help.

        1. ted mcnure

          If Tony was £1m cheaper, he’d be £1.5 overpriced.

          1. Deulofail
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Sound like good value to me then.

            SOLD!

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years

      Yup! Check Sterling too!

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        They've all been suffocating my team since GW2. I can see why I'm doing so badly if everyone else is not owning the bad players, as I am. Hopefully the bad players will become the good players, coz I'll be damned if I can choose good players myself.

    I really did just take a -4 to transfer Wilson out didn’t I? This season is horrendous!!

    1. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      No you didn't, there was no reason for that. It was your brother.

        I think his brother is writing your comments too 😉

      Pretend the Wilson part of the move was the FT bit

  5. Hazz

    Crystal Palace should sign Lundstram.

  6. Gudjohnsen
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Damn it. Thought the game ended 0-0.
    Just checked the score and typical that my main rival has Wilson!

    1. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Mine also. But he benched him snd started PvA and Guaita. Maybe I can live with that. But one of his starting XI will find a banana to slip...

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Benched Wilson!? Why would anyone do that?!

  7. Olson
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Can translate 'Top 10K not yet sold on Man City assets':

    'Many Top 10K slow to get on Hernandes, now find themselves with no viable route to KdB'

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Also can classify them as retrospective managers.. they are going to get massacred by City whilst sticking with Son/Kane

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I suspect this won't be the case. My conviction was that Fernandes is the ever present (fingers crossed) and that Kane and Son emerged as the players that simply aren't worth the transfers to mess with. With early signs that could be the case after they drubbed city, there's a strong possibility that mucking about with the slots around these three players could be the way to go

        1. Olson
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          (which for me means hokey cokey KdB/Salah, Cancelo gamble and Vardy is off the table)

        2. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Drubbed City? They had 4 shots and conceded 2 big chances. Ultra negative tactics from Mourinho given the early goal. Don’t see them putting up many goals with their difficult fixtures.. Bruno, KDB, Salah, Sterling, Vardy all superior options for the foreseeable

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Not a problem, I own KdB, Bruno, Kane and Son

            And yes, anyone who watched that match with their eyes open saw them drub city. They beat City comfortably and both Spurs assets returned

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              4 and 10 not great for 11 and 10 million respectively

              1. Olson
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 23 days ago

                9.5 and 10.5

                Trying really hard here if you're claiming that 14 points is a poor investment return for 20m against Manchester City. 7ppg is lovely in any week for anyone

                The conversation here is basically about chasing explosive scores. I'm not going to do that excessively and let the rest of my team rot whilst those two keep returning. I have captains in Bruno, KdB and Kane. I don't need another in, for example, Sterling, whose 2m more than Son and is pretty much the only premium not on pens. Sure he has a whopping ceiling, sometimes, but he's so unreliable that you're basically accepting you may have to neglect your team. It's not worth it.

                As for Vardy, I don't like not owning him this week, that's for sure. But I feel fairly confident owning Kane. I've been watching him each week and he's in the form of his life.

                And re. Mourinho tactics: it's early in the season. Mourinho shuts up shop in the second half of the season. I see nothing to worry about at all. There's been a couple of tricky games against rubbish bus-parkers, but that comes to everyone. You just want the player that gets that one goal. That's Kane

    2. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yeah, they're doing well, in part, because they don't own him. They can't all just get him because they want him. Besides, without doing the maths, it looks like more KDB owners in top 10k captained KDB, then Vardy owners, Vardy, and Salah owners, Salah, proportionally speaking. So headline is a bit off, you might say.

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        But what are you expecting? Narrative is king these days, no matter how much shoehorning and cherrypicking required.

  8. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Who to start next week?

    A) Lamptey (SOU - and I have no Southampton defenders)
    B) Bamford (che - I have Chillwell)

    I usually always start the attacker but leaning towards A.

    1. Deulofail
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I love Lamptey, but not easy to predict his returns. Seems to be a bit unlucky and Southampton could esily score. Bamford is more likely to return in my mind, and Chilwell doesn't have much to do with it 🙂

      1. Deulofail
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Chelsea defence ain't shown themselves to be great either

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      I would never bench Bamford. He has taken the most shots in the league. This is not a player you bench.

    3. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      A

      I prefer Robbo over Benteke, I don't have either.

    4. LSK
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      How will you feel when a benched Bamford ruins your cleansheet? Just play him, Chilwell will get what he gets regardless.

    5. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Cheers all, good luck this GW!

    6. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      B - easy question

      A is going to be rested and he is a OOP attacker. But Bam is a center forward on a relentless team

  9. dshv

    Hope this week son blanks .. because i eant this week to do son to Ziyech ..

  10. tafrère
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Wilson > Vardy not looking good. Felt clever by being able to upgrade Wilson to Vardy and still own Kane. Now it could backfire big time if one of Kane or Vardy blanks.

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yeah those 12 points came from nowhere. Logged off at 88th minute. Just checked the score and am gutted.

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Exact same thing. I was playing RDR2 during the game, checked the score at 87-88 and thought "glad I took Wilson out, this game really had 0-0 written all over it". And then checked back again just to see a Wilson haul. Erh, one of those thing I guess. Surely this won't define our gameweek.

  11. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Still long way to go to GW11 deadline, but to get KDB would you do:
    A. Bruno (whu) > KDB [C]
    B. Son (ARS) > KDB [C]
    C. Werner (LEE) Burke > KDB [C] Webster (-4)

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 23 days ago

      B

      1. tafrère
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        A or B depending on GW10 outcome. Probably B then.

  12. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Guaita to who? Don't care if they have WBA next. Palace are the most frustrating team in the league. Trash team and I am 200% selling Guaita this week.

    Fabianski, McCarthy, Mendy are options.

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Fabianski set and forget.

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        McCarthy not worth a shout? Still 4.5 and will get tons of cleans at home against rubbish teams.

        1. tafrère
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Worth a shout ofc, I own him myself. But Fabianski has better fixtures. Your choice really.

        2. Dthinger
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Fabianski save points monster! Consistently top of the keeper standings.

    2. GREEN JUMPERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Keep him one more week. Then get Fabianski, who has Palace at home GW13 for you to enjoy.

  13. Feanor
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Of course Wilson gets a big haul as soon as I transfer him out for Vardy.

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Same here.

      But tbh Wilson has been really good all season so far. Was pretty harsch to ditch him.

  14. Willmissudimitrypayet

    How will Chelsea line up with all their attackers fit?

    The 4-3-3 with Werner, Abraham and Hakim has served them well

    1. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      That should continue or they go 3-5-2

      This gives them Reece and Chilwell wide and Azip, Zouma, Thiago in the middle

      Mids: Mount-Kante-Jorginho

      Front two Abraham - Werner

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I don't think we'll be going back to 352 in the short term, unless it's for a big match.

        Best performances have been in a 433.

    2. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Can’t see werner playing sole striker up top. Think lampard sees him more as a inside forward type player. Abraham should be quite secured for starts I would think, pulisic May be vying for minutes with Werner then

    Are all the people currently on 100.2 and a little over all rising tonight? Some of these were on 104 and over earlier on
    I want to beat the rise to get Kilman

    1. tafrère
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Look at Kilman fixtures, why would you bring him in now ?

      1. The Reptile
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I have Zouma and Chilwell, need to raise funds to get Kane and Salah back and keep. 0.5 itb for wildcard
        Was going to do Zouma to Kilwell
        Don't want a benching headache by getting Coufal
        Lamptey and Justin other playing defs

  16. Camino Aleatorio
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    No template this week, some folks are going to jump and some fall hard

    Some folks are going to pass out when Salah plays great, scores a nice goal but gets subbed off at halftime- cause he was ill and needs rest

    1. Dr Mulholland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Yep. Good to follow your own template.

  17. HD7
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Zaha should be back for WBA next week?

  18. waldo666

    Looking at potential drops I may very well end up back at 100.0 TV, my style of play means It's never usually very high but nothing like this!

    1. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      It's been much worse with drops this season, you're going to have to think about changing your style. I don't like it myself, but have to move with the times because they're sure moving

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        Yeah, think you might be right, have always been very hit averse and think it's really starting to hurt.

        1. Bennerman

          I don't like the way it's been, but with this amount of changes, when it comes to Jan or whenever there will be people with a huge amount of value and their second wildcard will accrue an awesome team. You don't want to be scratching around for cheap players then.

          That's why I'm personally forced into more transfers than usual at this stage, trying to keep on top of money as well as team

    Can safely say the current 10k will not be the final 10k

    1. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Some of that current top10k are prob ghost teams, who have just had Kane and Son cap all season.

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        It’s sad to think that a set and forget team is doing much better than many over thinkers

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yes, a guy in a ML I'm in full of casuals is on 555 points and had Kane cap all season, with Son, and made 0 transfers... Also had David Luiz, Soyuncu and Saka...

    Kane -> Werner ?

    1. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years

      Prob not

    KDB is currently on 94.1 on fpl stats. Do we think he will rise tonight?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years

      Who knows these days? I stopped caring about price

      1. LucasD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I have the right amount to do Son > KDB but still thinking about it? I will be priced out if he rises

    2. Stand By Mee

      I’m -8 from 0 so... well done

  23. Bobby Digital
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Props to the new ticker. Would've probably not got Lewis without it. Filtered by defence and difficulty order... and there it was.. Newcastle on the top. Who would've thunk it?

  24. Stand By Mee
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Would you rather have:

    A) Jota and Wilson
    or
    B) Grealish and Bamford

    1. noahzark22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B

    2. Optimus.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      With xmas rotation if rather B

    3. Dr Mulholland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B

    4. Sco
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      B by far

  25. Puntillimon
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    Bruno and richarlison to bamford and salah for free - Yes or no? Bruno’s fixtures aren’t looking great. Would want salah back for gw 12 at the latest

    1. noahzark22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I did Burno to Sterling this week so Yes, I would

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Risky move that

        1. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          For chasers may be a good move

    2. Esalman
      • 11 Years

      Is Richarlison injured or something?

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        No just bring his run of good fixtures soon

        1. Puntillimon

          Ending*

  26. Dr Mulholland
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 23 days ago

    I've made 5 transfers for Gameweek 10 at the cost of 12 pts:

    TAA to Robertson
    Kane to Vardy
    DCL to Bamford
    Son to De Bruyne
    Zouma to Cancelo

    Not my usual style, but just felt right to get these players in with more potential in the medium term as I reason it.

    Will use my wildcard before it expires around GW16.

    1. Puntillimon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      Why would you not just use the wildcard? As you won’t be able to predict what happens in gw16

          Eh, hardly. Not something that's common, and often bite back but sometimes you see this happen when people really want XYZ. Doing it all in one week stops staggering it over 5 GWs.

          It's just a game. If you want to to do it, do it.

    5. Sco
      • 7 Years

      No offence mate but I feel you've been sucked in by the FFScout hivemind here. Kane AND Son out? The top scoring striker and the top scoring midfielder in the game. Both flying and their team are top of the league and in great form.

      These so called monster fixtures are overstated. They spanked City last week with both players returning and have an atrocious Arsenal next week then Palace after.

      Why DCL to Bamford? DCL at home to a really poor defence in Leeds then Burnley next week while Bamford has Chelsea away next week.

      Good luck though. It's bold as hell!

        Thanks for the good wishes. Good to hear your opinions.

        You're right Son & Kane have been in great form. I do feel that they cannot sustain that level though, and the fixtures are turning.

        Really wanted to get Vardy & De Bruyne in primarily.

        DCL, I have doubts about who is going to assist him. Imo James looks slightly off it and with Digne injured..

          I took a -8 to get De Bruyne and Vardy this week for Kane and Salah. Brings me to -40 in total hits for the season. I’m ranked 60k with a 105.8m TV. Play the game your own way and don’t listen to the sheep telling you to get back in the herd.

      I did two lots of -8 over gw9 and 10 - I've cut down on transfers this year, but having my worse year

      GW9 : Kane, Salah and Son to Vardy, KDB and Bruno
      GW10 : Werner, Rashford and Zouma to DCL, Sterling and Justin

      1. Dr Mulholland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 23 days ago

        I do like to have a plan for 6-8week blocks. I don't normally take hits.

        However I think it may be more necessary this season with players isolating at short notice. Plus regular injuries etc. Could be possible to target players playing weakened teams.

      2. Dr Mulholland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

    Jota - 8 points
    Mane - Rested

    1. Dr Mulholland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 23 days ago

      2 goals for Salah
      1 each for Jota
      1 for Mané (if he isn't rotated)

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 23 days ago

        If Mane rested and (S)alah hauls I'll do so well in my mini league, they all have Mane

        1. Dr Mulholland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          Yeah I have kept Salah.

          Salah, Jota & Firmino all had limited minutes in Champion's League, so maybe possible that Mané will not play the full game against Brighton.

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            some guy was on earlier, who apparently knows and he confirmed a Mane rest. It wasnt deleted, people took at gospel so I guess he has been right before

  29. POTATO

    Too late to avoid Kane SP drop. Oh well I can take some time with the following options:

    Martinez (Forster)
    Chilwell - Cresswell - Robertson - (Kilman - Mitchell)
    Salah(c) - B Fernandes(vc) - J Rodriguez - Grealish - Podence
    Kane - Bamford - Watkins
    0.1itb 1FT

    A) Kane Podence >> Wilson Son (0.2itb rotate forwards in 3-5-2)
    B) Kane J Rodriguez >> DCL Son (1.1itb 3-4-3)
    C) Kane J Rodriquez >> Wilson KdB (0.4itb 3-4-3)
    D) Kane Watkins >> Vardy Wilson (0.1itb 3-4-3)

    1. Trophé Mourinho

      1. POTATO

        Hopefully KdB doesn't get rested/benched against easier opposition like last season.

        1. PogChamp
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 23 days ago

          I must be the only one to prefer Sterling for their nice fixtures

          1. Trophé Mourinho
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 23 days ago

            Sterling is like a hot ex gf, but she cheated on you and will probably do it again. Kevin is marriage material

            1. POTATO
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yeah, for me KdB is a medium to long term pick. Sterling probably makes more sense for GW11 but I don't see him as a long term pick.

          2. dogtanion
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 23 days ago

            I went Sterling over KDB too..just boiled down to likelihood of goals to me .

            1. PogChamp
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 23 days ago

              Yeah same. (C) too.

    3. POTATO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 23 days ago

      *Also captaincy picks were for GW10. They will change with fixtures, particularly if KdB becomes an option GW11.
