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.

    What’s everyone’s team value?

      101.3, I took quite a few price drops on people like Son

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I agree with the use of selling value here

        Unless the player is a season keeper, selling value is more important than team value

          240,538. I was at 230,428 before the new game week started. I’ve taken three -4 hits and used my wild card GW 5. I can’t recall exactly, but the week I wild carded my team value increased somewhere between .7 and .9

    7. moment

      101.1... not chasing team value like I used to in past seasons

    8. Werkself

      105.0

      1. Werkself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        SV = 102.5

        1. Harn1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          You've done well to get that for only -12 in hits!

    9. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      TV is relatively useless. People who have sold Son and Kane will obviously have lower TV. SV is the all important measure.. 101.7

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        With an irrelevant TV of 103.3

    10. Harn1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      105.8 TV (having sold Son and Kane). 103.1 selling value

      1. Werkself
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I'm not nearly as brave as you when it comes to taking hits.

        1. Harn1
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          I wouldn’t need to take them if I could get it right first time like you!

  2. bso

    Bruno out for Salah a good move? Have the exact money now and 1ft.

    1. PogChamp
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I think Bruno's stats are slightly better but it's tight. If I was WC now I would have both.

    2. Sarri-ball
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yes for me.

      Im doing auba to salah easy for me fernandes out is harder call but i would

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Not sure on that. Any other way to get him in?

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Went Bruno to KDB this week ; KDB to Salah GW12.

  3. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Reguilon will be a great pick imo, CS and attacking returns. Think he will be fairly nailed going forward from now on

    So tricky tho to fit defenders in, already got Chilwell, James and Lamptey/KWP rotation. Moving to a back 4 is tempting given the options in Robbo, Reguilon, and some City guy (not convinced on City personally).

    Is a back 4 logical when Bamford, Antonio and Wilson are on the radar?
    Midfield spots around those prices kinda suck bar Jota, but those cheap forwards are probably better

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      4-3-3 is worth considering

      Atleast that's what I'm working toward. Allows a premium team on paper.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Still think 343 best way to go.

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      He and Robbo are the set two of my back three

    4. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I got Reguilon since beginning- he’s ok

      Jose Mourinho takes CS seriously. Reguilon is not allowed to abandon all defensive duties and just stand at the edge of the box like Chilwell

  4. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    That was so unlucky as a PVA Owner.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      You can probably just copy and paste this til the end of the season.

    2. SweepaKeepa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Painful. Was all set for 9 points. 10 mins later and it’s just the 1.

  5. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    I am thinking these moves to get KdB in for a 4 point hit.

    Grealish Lamptey Son => KdB Jota Nko

    Worth it? Or just get Foden?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Wouldn't get Foden but no other option to get Kevin?

      Probably not worth it, atleast not this week

    2. The Knights Template

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Here is the team:

        Martinez – (Button)
        Robbo – Kilman – Dias– (Lamptey) (Targett)
        Salah – Bruno – Son – Grealish - (Soucek)
        Bamford – DCL - Wilson

        2FT & 0.8m itb

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Tough, hard decision needed, maybe Robbo/Son out.

          1. The Units
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            that was the original plan, but with Robbo hauling last week made me want to keep.

  6. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Ruben Dias or Cancelo guys? Want to replace PVA

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Risk appetite? High - Cancelo. Low - Dias.

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Cancelo has move chance of assist but Dias not , mendy is back worried on cancelo minutes , might gi dias after ucl game

        1. The Knights Template
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          That sums it up in a nutshell.

    2. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      I went Dias

      1. Chelsea91

        Yes same will go dias after the ucl thanks

        Mendy

  7. IRBOX ⚽

    With so many viable options this season and many heavy hitters.. it all comes down to captain choices. Those who have nailed them are doing well, those who haven’t are lagging.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      So it goes

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Anyone with less than 54 (108) total captaincy points? FPL is all about this one metric unfortunately...

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        mine perhaps, where to check?

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years

          94 for you bro, ouch. Hence the rank though.. captaincy is all it is

        Last season, I probably had the lowest on here.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Largely a luck element

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            If you keep going differential, the variance is greatest, I kept picking the lower one of the main 2 most GWs.

            1. IRBOX ⚽
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              That’s the thing though. It’s often a 50/50 call between the best two assets on any given GW; and pure luck if one hauls and the other doesn’t depending on which side of the fence you’re on

              1. TorresMagic™
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 11 Years
                3 months, 6 days ago

                It's been a lot more stable this season.

                1. IRBOX ⚽
                  • 3 Years

                The entire game is luck. Captaincy is just luck x 2

      I am on 32(64), think I won. i got 6 blanks captain, and it's not i just picked differential, 1 Mane, 2 KDB, 1 Salah out of the 6.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      48x2= 96 points for my captain. If KdB(C) get 2 points this GW, he has made me a hattrick in 4points as Captain this season.

  10. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years

    Kane will be the best captain option for gw11 with weak arsenal defence.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Other options?

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Man City perhaps.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        I'll be on KDB all going well

    3. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Fulham at The Etihad says otherwise...

      1. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        But who do you captain?

        You expect MCI to win and it won’t be close. But nobody in baby blue is acting like a talisman

        Intelligent assumption says KDB but we don’t know that. Could be Sterling or Aguero or Torres or even Foden

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      He'll be a popular and great option, but perhaps not the best one when City are playing Fulham.

    5. Party time
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      KDB

    6. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years

      Il be on Sterling prob.

    7. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

      Hard to look past a City asset

    8. SHOWSTOPPERRR

      I don't see many goals in it..

    9. Bushwhacker

      Arsenal will park the bus as its all Arteta does now. Almost guaranteed 0-0

      Sterling will have a giant game soon then go back into hibernation.

    Can't believe Callum Wilson keeps getting the points. What a talisman!

    1. The Knights Template

      Not even being fed by Fraser.

      neither can I but got him all the same. have gone cheap up front and going well atm.

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Looks like the pick of the 6.5m lot.
      Thinking of getting him this week for Jimenez so as to afford Rashford>Sterling (C) for a hit.

    Has Riedewald lost his place?

    1. Holmes

      was never nailed tbf. might play games here and there.

        Damn, most Palace fans said he's been their best mid this season and was nailed

    Mccarthy Ryan
    Cancelo Chilwell Justin Kilman Coufal
    Bowen Grealish Salah Bruno Kdb
    Bamford Adams Watkins
    What do you think is the weak link of this team?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Watkins, Grealish, Bowen

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Why Watkins and Grealish?

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          No genuine reason tbh but whenever I have seen their game, it doesnt really give a good feeling from FPL perspective.

          Grealish without setpiece duties is probably going to not work in long run.

      Looks pretty good as long as the cheaps forwards fire and DCL/Kane don't.

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Bowen

  15. Weeb Kakashi

    Jimenez> Wilson for free tonight before Jimenez drops??

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Around 20hrs left for next price change, wait for now.

      Good move, Bamford is also worth considering.

    Early thoughts on this for next week?
    Martinez (Forster)
    Chilwell Cancelo Lamptey (Coufal)(Neco)
    Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
    Vardy DCL Watkins

    1ft,0.5 itb

    Riedewald losing his place would be really annoying, I could do Neco to Lewis to improve my bench maybe..

    I did something crazy and sold Fernandes for this GW but I really wanted Salah back for GW 10.

      morning mate, GL this week, especially as a fellow vardy captainer
      any reason why you started a suspended lamptey ahead of soucek? 😀

      1. Bushwhacker

        Can claim jam 😉

  18. Flair

    Callum Wilson has the same number of FPL points as Mo Salah

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Time to cover Salah with Wilson and Jota

  19. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    For GW11 Salah to Sterling (c) ( -4 )
    Gw12 Sterling to Salah (c)

    As I also have KDB, spending a hit and a FT on the above is probably

    A) Foolish
    B) Feisty!

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      extremely foolish to take a hit to get a player in that you plan on selling the week after

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      It is foolish in my book but aggressive strategies like this work for some

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Might work. It looks foolish on paper. But both Salah and Sterling could haul big against Fulham.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      This move would be in tune with a highly aggressive -and probably highly reckless- strategy I've been trying out this season, but I agree it's unlikely to be worth it, as much as I dislike only having 2 city for the Fulham game.

      Thanks.

    A forward line of DCL,Bamford & Wilson from the start would have been gold...

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yes it would have been. I have them now though.

    PVA | Chilwell | Targett
    Son | B.Fernandes | JRod | Ziyech | Grealish
    Vardy (c) | DCL

    Forster | Reguilon | Brewster | Mitchell

    A. Son => KDB
    B. Son => Salah
    C. Reguilon/PVA + JRod => 4.5 + KDB -4

  23. Weeb Kakashi

    Arsenal do have a nice fixture run from Week 12-19. If they do show some form in the next 2 games would you be tempted by Aubameyang?
    Especially in a time where the fixtures come thick and fast and the likes of Sterling get rotated a lot. But with Auba you know he's on pens and wont be rotated. Thoughts??

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      No. Arteta is playing like Ole, parking the bus nine times out of ten and trying to nick something. Doesn’t make for an appealing target, especially until we know he’s realized Auba plays through the middle.

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I would not even pick Auba for 7.5 m right now

      1. F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        He's been woeful but I can't lie I'd still be tempted to pick him if he was 7.5m going into a good run of fixtures.

      2. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        A bit too exaggerated

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          He's a world class player and the moment he shows something I'll get him in but the underlying stats are just woeful

      3. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        If playing through the middle and Arsenal do improve a bit then id be tempted come GW 16.

    3. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      No. I learned from my mistakes.

    4. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Only Arsenal player I'm looking at for those fixtures is Bellerin.

    5. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      If Arsenal win the next two by 3 or 4, with Auba bracing in each, then possibly.

  24. The Red Devil
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    If rumoured team news of mane not playing are true, then Salah cappers will enjoy a double digit haul for sure!
    Hope robbo gets couple of assists

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Doesn't Salah do better with Mane?
      Or was that the other way round?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        No, Salah plays phenomenally without Mane. His record without him these past two seasons is incredible.

        I remember Mané being benched after lockdown in this exact fixture. Salah got 2G 1A, just like that. It’s incredible really. Also braced against Villa this season with Mané out with COVID.

      2. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Nope other way around & the improvement is insane!

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      At 29.5% ownership he’s a differential for non capping owners too.

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Ohh damn hes my (C),missed Rash > Sterling(C) deadline.

      Couuld happen,playing 90min midweek was strange

    4. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Non capper here. Expecting a goal and an assist.

    5. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I guess Salah will be subbed off early too for Mane. Hopefully he stays quiet!

      1. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        That's the key word for non owners
        Hope!

    6. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Klopp wants to split 45 minutes with his stud horses - Salah 45 and then Mane 45.

      Easy opponent, good time to rest the lads a bit

  25. CroatianHammer

    Feel like the expectations for City have drastically increased as the week went on.

    1. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Have they? Bookies have had them thumping Burnley early doors

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 6 days ago

        True, I meant on these boards. At the start of this week I was seeing opinions like "not in form, 5 goals in last 5, dreadful underlying stats" and now the consensus opinion seems to have significantly changed to favor City.

        I don't mind, I've got Sterling stinking up my team for a while and do believe City will 3-0, it's just interesting to see. Happened with Fernandes over the IB too and that worked out.

        1. IRBOX ⚽
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          KDB (c) and Sterling here.. they are going to break the shackles sooner rather than later. I see a Sterling masterclass in one of the next 4 GW’s and your patience will be rewarded

  27. fc_skrald
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Who would you play next gw?

    a. Lamptey, home against Southampton
    b. Jiménez, away against Liverpool

    1. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Any possibility you might sell Jiménez?

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yes, might sell for Antonio. But I would like to save a transfer this gw. The team is:

        Martínez
        PVA, Chilwell, Robertson, Lamptey
        Son, Salah, Fernandes, Grealish
        Wilson, Bamford

        Button, Jiménez, Burke, Mitchell
        1 free transfer, 0.0 million in the bank

  28. Gold Coast

    36 points from my captain this season. Anyone worse?

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Crikey. You have got that “pinning the tail on the donkey” technique down pat

    4. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      That's surely near impossible if playing properly. 9 GWs of players just playing gets you 36 points alone. Who on Earth did you captain?

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Think he means 72 with the multiplier

      Even Jorginho permacap would have done better...

    6. Mweene
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      81 for me. 162 with the double points.

      Have only capped Salah or Kane apart from Bruno last week (would have gone Salah).

      Salah again this week.

    7. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      46 points.

    3 months, 6 days ago

    Spurs have the least amount of goals conceded in the league. Didn't expect that stat!

    Only 3 CS though, what a shame.

    • 4 Years

    Anyone looking at Ings for later on?
    Dropping to 8.2 soon so might be an easy switch from DCL and should be back very soon

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yes, I will get him agiain when he is fit. He has been such good value for the last year!

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Definitely, most underrated FPL asset IMO, he just keeps delivering, only problem is the injury concerns otherwise I even think he's fixture proof.

        1. fc_skrald
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          He seems to be better at injuries - went through the whole last season without major injuries. Good for him - I would love if he won the golden boot, he really deserves that prize.

    2. The Red Devil
      • 5 Years

      Planning to switch to 3-5-2 with him & DCL in few weeks time

        • 4 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah it sounds crazy but fixtures and no Digne was what I was thinking, I'd probably only do it to fund some other move though by getting Bamford. Maybe If I get Ings it will be DCL+Ings
