Phil Foden hauls again as City defence shines in win over Brighton

Manchester City 1-0 Brighton

  • Goal: Phil Foden (£6.2m)
  • Assist: Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m)
  • Bonus: 3x Foden, 2x Zinchenko, 1x Dias

Phil Foden (£6.2m) picked up his second maximum bonus-point haul in a row as City were made to battle to beat Brighton in Blank Gameweek 18.

The defence of City shone again as their attackers missed a glut of chances in their win.

With many Fantasy Premier League players lumping on their defence, this display will have given them a renewed sense of confidence ahead of the Double Gameweek.

With upcoming games against Crystal Palace and a COVID stricken Aston Villa, their defence looks set to carry on bringing in the points.

Curse of KDB

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) looks likely to go down as one of the most frustrating player of the season.

Lining up as a false nine in a team scoring goals, FPL players captaining KDB were licking their lips at the thought of a monster haul.

But their was a sense of inevitability after a first half where De Bruyne had two good chances in the box saved by Robert Sanchez (£4.4m).

During the second half, De Bruyne started dropping deeper and deeper as City came under pressure from a spirited Brighton side.

Even when he earned a penalty in injury time, KDB owners must have thought their luck had turned.

However, the sight of substitute Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) stepping up and missing the spot kick quickly brought them back down to earth.

The City captain did finish the game with a clean sheet bonus and an assist for the Foden goal, but yet again owners will be ruing what could have easily been a double-digit haul.

This is by far from the first time De Bruyne and the City attack has failed to convince against a team in the lower reaches of the table.

Once known for their free-flowing attacking football, City have now failed to put more than two goals past West Brom, Newcastle, Brighton and Fulham.

In their last six Gameweeks, they have been outscored by Arsenal and Aston Villa, and have scored the same amount of goals as Wolves and Everton.

Usually such a cool customer, Pep Guardiola cut a frustrated figure in the second half.

His post match interview even suggested more narrow wins could be on the horizon for City.

“We knew how tough it would be. Brighton had a good mentality to play. We had a really good first half and had chances. After we missed a really clear chance in the second half they were better. We need to win these sorts of games. It is a good lesson for us. Every game will be like this.”

Pep Guardiola

City’s win over Chelsea now looks like an anomaly, rather than their other results, and questions still remain over City’s premium attacking assets.

Boy Wonder

If City’s premium attackers are coming under scrutiny, then Foden looks like a great solution.

The “Stockport Iniesta” began the game on the left side of City’s attack, where he cut inside to score a goal on his weaker right foot.

An all-action display saw the England international switch with KDB, Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m), to pop up on both wings and as a false-nine.

Pep was quick to praise the goalscorer’s versatility, and hinted he may be more assured of a place in the team going forward.

Phil Foden is 20-years-old, look at the starts. The amount of games, the assists compared to the bigger stars in football. Can play both sides, in the middle as a false nine. He is so clever in front of goal. That’s why he deserves to play

Pep Guardiola

Speaking after the match, Foden spoke of wanting to add more goals to his game.

“I don’t score a lot of goals with my right, when I do score them it’s always nice. It was a good goal. I always like to be in the area. I want to score more goals and enjoy the moment.”

Phil Foden

FPL players are going to take a lot more convincing before Foden is rotation proof, but if he can nail down a place in the team then City’s young attacking star will become a must-have.

Paying the Penalty

Raheem Sterling became the latest in a long line of penalty takers to miss a spot kick for Man City.

The substitute, who had only been brought on for the last 10 minutes, surprised many when he stepped up instead of their usual penalty taker, KDB.

And their surprise turned to horror when Sterling skied the penalty in injury time, depriving KDB of another assist and surely three bonus points.

Pep explained the change in taker was down to De Bruyne’s effort throughout the game.

“Kevin is the taker but he made an incredible effort – not just the action to press the keeper and create the penalty but for the rest of the actions before. He was struggling in the last 15 minutes because he was exhausted. I like the guys who take the responsibility for the penalty. It was Raz (Sterling) and next time it will be better.”

Pep Guardiola

This will cause further confusion as to just who is going to take penalties for Man City.

Sterling and KDB have both missed spot kicks this season, and Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m) spurned a key penalty against Spurs last season.

All this points to frontman Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) being given the responsibility when he returns from injury.

Big at the Back

Another clean sheet for City saw two of their defenders picking up bonus points in a solid display.

Ruben Dias (£5.8m) picked up one of them, and his influence on the back line cannot be understated.

Since arriving from Benfica in the summer for a club record of £65million, Dias has slotted seemlessly into the City defence, marshalling them and barking out orders.

City now have the best defensive record in the league, and before the game, Pep singled out Dias for praise.

“When you buy players always you have this quality but you never know what is going to happen. He is a guy that can play every three days. He recovers immediately and his ability is incredible, as is his understanding of the game. He wants to learn and all of us were impressed how he takes care of his body and mind, every day. We were surprised a lot. The day after [a game] – 8.30 in the morning in the gym. He makes his routine, he eats perfectly. He lives 24 hours for his profession. I can assure you that we signed one incredible player for the next five, six, seven years. That is not easy to find.”

Pep Guardiola

The arrival of Dias has also seen the resurgence of John Stones (£5.0m), whose form was keeping Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) out of the side even before his injury.

And another option appears to have emerged in their defence, in the shape of Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m).

Retaining his place at left-back even with Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) fit again, Zinchenko looked assured at both ends of the pitch, and bagged two bonus points.

Pep explained before the game how he sees Zinchenko in the same mould as Joao Cancelo (£5.8m), as a full-back who can move into central areas to support the midfield.

As Cancelo has shown this season, that style of play can attract huge bonus points, so it could be worth keeping an eye on Zinchenko for the next few games.

Fresh Faces

Graham Potter yet again tore up his previous team sheet and introduced a number of different players to his line-up.

Bernardo (£3.9m) showed a good range of passing from wing-back and Reda Khadra, not yet priced on the game, looked dangerous with his pace.

But a special mention is reserved for Percy Tau (£5.5m), the South African striker recalled from loan at Anderlecht.

The striker, classed as a midfielder on the game, looked dangerous with threatening runs in behind.

Yet again Brighton displayed a lack of cutting edge against City, but there are hopes the pacey South African striker could provide this.

With Neal Maupay (£6.1m) failing to show the form he hit last year, and injuries to Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) and Aaron Connolly (£5.5m), Tau could be due a long run in the side.

His out of position bonus also makes him an exciting proposition for FPL players.

“We’re excited of course. He’s only been with us for a few days but I think you can see his quality. You can see his ability and what he brings. We’re looking forward to getting to know him better and him getting to know us better.”

Graham Potter

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Zinchenko, Stones, Dias, Cancelo; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Foden (Sterling 82′), B Silva, Mahrez (Jesus 67′).

Brighton and Hove Albion XI (3-4-2-1): Sanchez; Burn, Dunk, Webster; Bernardo, White, Propper (March 68′), Veltman; Tau (Maupay 68′), Trossard (Khadra 86′); Mac Allister.

    Surely if any time to take a hit, to enable BB can be one of the best? If all 4 players just get 2 points on your bench you breakeven with the hit, more if they have DGW ofc which mine can.

    Tempted by (team above and linked) Davis Robbo Mitchell to Antonio and 2def for 11m (-8) to then BB with 12DGW + Son Dallas Bam

      Whoops, team on last page now! But 1FT 1.8 ITB and:

      Martinez
      *Robbo* Coufal Dallas
      Salah Bruno KDB Son Soucek
      Bamford Watkins
      — Areola Pieters *Mitchell* *Davis*

      Imo even for a -8 makes a decent BB?

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I’d probably go for that
        Antonio + Cancelo/Dias + another would be worth -8 on a BB I reckon

          Cheers bro. It’s very risky but I think it could too, if all games go ahead (please lol).

          Would you take Stones for the double up? Or any other 5.2m def. dias probs safer but more boring option than Cancelo?

          1. Boberella
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Cancelo is attacking and so much more fun to watch than Dias.
            Stones + Cancelo double up could be good. Just no idea if either or both will play both games.

    For 11m, what 2 def would you like for DGW and moving forward (current team above)

    Obvious seems to be Cancelo/Dias and Stones. But can we even rely on any of them to start both DGW games?

  6. FantasyHero
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Any issues with this DGW19 FH team?

    Fabianski
    Chilly Dias cancelo coufal
    Salah rash Bruno kdb El-gazi
    Antonio
    Steer Mitchell Brewster Davis

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Lousy bench
      Would rather Soucek over El Ghazi too, but would mean getting a different GK

      1. FantasyHero
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Problem is no striker worth getting then. Antonio the only one worth in the dgw i feel.

    So apparently now Villa vs Newcastle has a chance of moving to GW18?

    Chaos.

    1. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yes, replacing Villa Everton

      Source?

    3. Flair

      DGW19*

    4. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      That would be perfect

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Indeed it would. Ideally they announce it before the deadline so we don't have confusion over whether it'll be part of GW19 or GW20.

    5. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      When will we know about it? Before or after deadline??

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Let me just call up the Head of the FA and ask.

        Silly question.

  10. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    7 DGW'rs for 19.
    No KDB. DCL on the physio table.
    Where would u be looking to make moves?

    Is KDB in a definite priority we reckon? Would mean shifting Mane probably which isn't ideal.

    McCarthy.
    Robbo, Stones, Dallas, Coufal.
    Salah, Son, Mane, Fernandes, Soucek.
    Bamford.
    Forster, DCL, Brewster, Ferguson.
    1ft, 0.2m ITB.

    1. Kloppen Schloppen
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      We have similar dilemmas here.

      I’m thinking just DCL to Antonio and capping Mo (Mane in your case).

      The question is KDB worth a hit or more to bring in over Mo?? Coin toss

      1. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Do u think Mane is more of a hold than Salah?
        Mane has been more threatening I think but not sure I should change Salah

        Thinking of skipping KDB for the double and then seeing where that puts me.

        1. Kloppen Schloppen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I would keep Mane and hope he can outscore Mo. agree he’s been better. Amd they are attacking down his side more with Robbo.

          Logically it makes no sense to remove a DGW player like Mo for KDB for a hit. There’s no way that works out

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Can you upgrade Son to KdB if you fowngrade DCL to Rodrigo? Not ideal but I guess that's the only way you can fit all four of Salah, Mane, Bruno and KdB.

      Can downgrade Mane and upgrade Rodrigo post GW19. But that would essentially mean 2 hits (one ot get KdB and one to soart the team post the double). Not sure if it's worth it.

      1. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Mane to KdB is the obvious move if you want to play it safe as most will own KdB and can hurt your rank more than Mane.

    Steve Bruce is protecting his Newcastle players by preventing them from scoring any goals, thus stopping them from hugging and therefore possibly spreading the virus to each other.

    Wilson to
    1. Bamford for a hit
    2. Keep

    1. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Already got Antonio

    2. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I’d risk it if nothing else pressing and given you already have Antonio

    3. PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Newcastle could have a DGW?

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        oh wow

      2. osceola31909
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        That would be nice now that I have Wilson.

  12. Dthinger
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Bamford to Antonio is an obvious move now, right?

    1. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Not if you already have Antonio like I have got. Limited options at this price

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I would consider it DGW blindness.

    3. Sz21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Or DCL -> Antonio instead if owning both?

  13. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Probable Antonio starts both DGW games? I’m tempted by a hit for Davis to Antonio, and playing Antonio with either Bamford / Watkins then first sub... those DGW fixtures are amazing.

    I do also have Coufal Soucek

    1. Canadian Football
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      im seriously considering him. WHU are pretty thin at forward with injuries. i think he will play both just not 90 in each

      1. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        also Haller left. Antonio is the only one they have!

  14. Canadian Football
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    So has Foden become a long term option ? or is it a disaster and wasted transfer waiting to happen ?

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Can't say anything with Pep tbh. Anyone apart from KdB is a risk to be benched obviously. With City assets apart from him, the only thing I'd advice is pick one and stick. No point guessing what Pep might do. Hopefully, if you hold him long enough, you'll reap the benefits when he plays and scores. But he is playing well and should stat more often that not right now.

    Is it worth taking -4, for these 2 transfers to have 12 DGW players?

    Son & Saiss >>> KDB & Stones

  16. yanky
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Fabianski (Johnstone)
    Cancelo Dias TAA Coufal James
    Son Salah Bruno Soucek (Raphinha)
    Bamford (Rodrigo Adams)

    I dont think im gonna play BB / TC chip. Son Adams James and my 3 leeds wont play two games.

    Im 0.1 off from upgrading Son to KDB (of course)
    a) Son Raphinha > KDB Saka (-4 pt hit)
    b) Son > Pulisic then get KDB after dgwk19 (free)

  17. Phil's Stamps
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Son & Kane to Salah & ?

    I'll have 9.2 to spend, surely the Werner punt (at that exact price) is my destiny?

    Alternatives are Cavani (if Martial out) or Antonio, neither of which appeal.

      What’s not appealing about Antonio? Great DGW fixtures and should play 60+ in both given hammers have no other strikers really

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I know he played 90 the other night, but from the highlights and what I've read he struggled. I was watching the live text updates of the game and I don't think he got more than a single mention. I doubt match fitness will come just because he played his first game in ages before the DGW, it doesn't work like that. So although I think there is every chance he gets 60 in each, that doesn't necessarily mean we're getting 120 mins of the Antonio we're used to. Getting that many minutes is not nailed on either, teams with no strikers available have managed to rejig in the past & -though unlikely- the transfer window is open.

        But I'm still undecided between the 3 I've mentioned, I'm not writing off Antonio just yet.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      If you remove the -now- single GW-ers, injury doubts like Kun & Martial and Vardy (doubts as to whether he can play both games), Werner is 2nd on the projections tool for forwards this week. Also featured on the goals imminent table. I think I've talked myself into it.

  18. Ruinenlust
    • 3 Years

    Robertson and Son -> Stones and KDB (-4).

    Yes or no??

    1. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Yes

    2. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Taking out the highest scoring defender snd the highest scoring midfielder?

      For a -4?

      When the defender has a double game week and the midfielder plays the team at the bottom of the league....

      Just think about it

    REPOST for more opinions. Bit of help appreciated here.

    Robbo, Grealish, DCL to Dias/Cancelo, KDB, Antonio (if fit) worth -8

    Robbo* Chilwell Stones Coufal
    Grealish* Son Bruno Salah
    DCL Bamford.

      DCL is the only one that needs to go

    Rival has triple Leeds. Feel sorry for him to be honest. Poor lad did all that planning for nothing.

      Not a season for planners.

    At this point really I’m tempted to BB so I can then not worry about that chip anymore and can focus money into the XI and 2 decent subs more 😆

    Hmm

      Same here.
      Although without the Villa double, a bench of Martinez, Targett, Grealish and Mitchell not exactly looking like a lot of points.

    Thoughts on this Team for 19? For a -4

    Areola
    Cancelo Cresswell AWB
    KDB Sterling Bruno Son
    Wilson Bamford Antonio

    Dallas Stephens

    Hoping Wilson gets a DGW.

      Looks good to me

      nice squad.....who would new have the DGW against ?

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Villa

  23. egan

      Help me pick one:
      1. Rashford stay
      2. Fabio Silva > Vardy; Rashford > Pogba (-4)
      3. Fabio Silva > Vardy; Rashford > Grealish (-4)
      4. Rashford > Salah

      I would have strongly considered Triple City defence over KDB if not for captaincy...

      Their next few fixtures scream VS and not thrashings

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

        *CS

          Agree

        Triple defense is just too risky imo. Double can still give you gains over most players. One lapse and an 18 pointer can turn into 6 pointer or even worse, like we saw against Chelsea.

          City have 6 CS in the last 8, but sure point to the one time it fails than the other six times it succeeded.

      Son + Raphinha to KdB + Lookman (-4)
      Kane + Raphinha to Antonio + KdB (-4)

      I'm guessing most will look to get Kane out which seems logical but I have a lot of money tied to him. So, will be difficult to get him back. I had sold Son and got him back for the Leeds game. So, only 0.1 tied up. Also, I like Lookman post the double and Antonio can break at any point. So, there's that risk with him as well.

      Free hitting DGW19.

      Are Spurs getting a DGW too like some rumors on social media? Or can I afford to lose Kane and Son for a week.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Doubt Spurs will get one but it does look like Villa have a reasonable chance of doing so, which would result in me saving FH.

      2. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        That would solve all the problems

      3. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years

        Spurs look less likely. Villa Newcastle most likely to take place. As a Wilson owner id take that.

        1. Messiah Hazard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          So Villa Everton likely to be replaced by Villa Newcastle?

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Yes basically

    • FPL ElasticO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Is it worth taking -4, for these 2 transfers to have 12 DGW players? Any suggestions..

      Son & Saiss >>> KDB & Stones

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yes considering the future city fixtures as well

    • PogBruno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Who would you get for Son between mane and Salah?

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Salah, pens.

    • Caleb's Kitties
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Not sure what's the best transfer..1FT 1.1ITB. Annoyed with leeds-soton postponement which now leaves me with only 5 doublers (down from 9)

      Mccarthy (forster)
      Robbo dias coufal dallas (mitchell)
      Salah bruno son raphinha (stephens)
      Kane bamford (DCL)

      A. Mccarthy to mendy
      B. Stephens to soucek (bench dallas)
      C. Raphinha to foden
      D. DCL to antonio (bench dallas)
      E. Mitchell to stones (bench dallas)
      F. Kane to vardy
      G. Kane/stephens to davis/KDB -4

    • Disturbed

      Is stones a good option for a City defender? Can’t afford cancelo/ Dias.

        He is.
