Stones produces season-high haul as City keep another clean sheet

Manchester City 4-0 Crystal Palace

  • Goals: John Stones (£5.1m) x2| Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m)| Raheem Sterling (£11.4m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m)| Ruben Dias (£5.8m)| Ferran Torres (£6.9m)
  • Bonus: Stones x3, Dias x2, De Bruyne x1

John Stones (£5.1m) delivered a massive 21 point haul as the defender bagged a brace against Crystal Palace.

Manchester City produced their best defensive display of the season in keeping another clean sheet, and look like the Premier League’s best defence.

With three favourable fixtures coming up, Fantasy Premier League players are already jumping on board the City defensive bandwagon.

Rock Solid

Sky Fantasy Football: Sticks and Stones? Who to bring in before the Overhaul? 2

Stones’ recent comeback has certainly been unexpected, considering he was firmly expected to depart from the Etihad in the summer, after falling way down the pecking order.

A series of costly mistakes saw Stones fall out of favour with Guardiola, whose City side struggled defensively last season.

Even makeshift centre back, Fernandinho (£5.4m) saw himself selected ahead of Stones for the majority of the season.

But the £47.5 million signing from Everton has completely turned around his career, with 2020/21 proving to be his redemption season.

Alongside new signing Ruben Dias (£5.8m), Stones has established himself at the heart of the City defence, starting eight of the last nine Premier League matches.

His influence on the team cannot be underestimated, with the Citizens keeping seven clean sheets in his nine starts across the course of the season.

Added to his solid defensive performances, Stones even appears to be adding goals to his game.

After scoring the winning goal in the Carabao Cup Manchester Derby, Stones popped up in the Palace box to score two goals.

Once left out in the cold, Stones now appears to have forged a strong bond with Pep, who credited Dias’ influence in helping the Barnsley born defender discover his form.

“Every player needs confidence but all the credit is just for him. If I have one player I’m pleased everything is going well for it’s him. He deserves the best. He overcame this situation all himself. He’s playing because he deserves it and I’m happy for him. John, alongside Ruben, grew up.”

Pep Guardiola

With the City defence in this kind of form, and injuries to Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) and Nathan Ake (£5.4m) keeping them out of the side, Stones doesn’t like losing his place any time soon.

And with plum fixtures against West Brom (away), Sheffield United (home) and Burnley (away), Stones’ price is set to shoot up.

The Iron Curtain

If City’s attack has faltered in recent Gameweeks, the same cannot be said of their defence.

The Citizens have quietly established themselves as the best defensive unit in the league, with Dias and Stones the foundation of this.

Pep’s men have already registered nine clean sheets this season – their most after 17 games of all their Premier League campaigns.

And in the 10 games Dias and Stones have started together, City have only conceded one goal.

City produced their best defensive display of the season against Palace, not even letting them have a shot on target.

As well as the impressive form of Stones and Dias, Pep may have found even more competition for places at left-back.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) was brought into the side primarily due to injuries, but has kept his place even with Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) fit again.

In this time Zinchenko has become a key part of the defence, and even got two bonus points in the previous shutout against Brighton.

Pep credited the whole team and their aggressive pressing for City’s improved defensive numbers.

“If you see today Raz (Sterling) and Bernardo and Gabriel (Jesus) and when they came in Ferran (Torres) and the other subs the way we press, how aggressive we are, how intense we are – it is so important, so good. It helps the central defenders to be better but we cannot deny the guys behind don’t make mistakes, they are so consistent and when the opponents scored a goal it is because they did well – not because we give it to them.”

Pep Guardiola

He added:

Last season it happened many times that the opponents didn’t do anything and we gave them goals. That makes it so difficult but this season we have improved a lot because we concede few (chances) and the difference is we don’t make mistakes.

Pep Guardiola

The only downpoint for FPL managers on their defensive display will have been the benching of Joao Cancelo (£5.8m).

The Portuguese full-back was brought in by more than 160,000 players ahead of Double Gameweek 19, but found himself benched in favour of Kyle Walker (£6.1m).

When Cancelo did get on the pitch in the 70th minute, he was interestingly deployed in central midfield, replacing Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m).

With Walker failing to impress against Palace, many expect Cancelo to regain his place at right-back for the Aston Villa match.

KDB alternative?

MCIWBA

There was a sense of deja vu for De Bruyne owners with the City promising so much, yet not quite delivering.

The Belgian produced the moment of the match when his magnificent outside of the foot cross, which left even Pep lost for words, was met by John Stones for his first goal.

What can I say again? The managers can help many things but one thing that belongs is the talent up front. Managers are incredibly fortunate or lucky to be in charge of this kind of player because it makes your life easier. In this type of game we have struggled in the last two seasons to beat them and I understood today why – it can only be broken by the quality of the players up front and this is the special something where managers are not involved.

Pep Guardiola

With nearly 200,000 managers choosing to use their Triple Captain chip on KDB, there will have been a sigh of relief after his assist, especially after Bruno Fernandes (£11.3m) and Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) blanked in the earlier fixture.

But De Bruyne failed to add to his tally and was substituted on at the 70 minute mark.

Despite passing the eye test on every level, popping up all over the pitch, creating chances and taking shots, De Bruyne just can’t seem to land the huge hauls he did last season.

In the second half, it was another midfielder who took the spotlight.

Ilkay Gundogan (£5.5m) scored his fourth goal of the season with a magnificent curling strike in the top corner.

This was Gundogan’s fourth goal in six games, and he is clearly relishing being given the licence to join in with the City attacks.

With his low price tag, Gundogan has rightly entered FPL managers’ thoughts as a budget midfield option, and even a cheaper alternative to De Bruyne.

Jesus on the rise?

Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) returned to the starting line-up against Palace, with De Bruyne returning to a more familiar midfield role.

Deployed as a centre-forward, City fans hoped Jesus could give the side a cutting edge it lacked against Brighton.

But this was not the case, as the Brazilian constantly found himself on the periphery of the game.

Jesus’ lack of influence is shown in his heatmap, where he spent most of his time outside the box.

With Pep opting for a fluid frontline, Jesus was even moved out wide as substitute Ferran Torres (£6.9m) took up a false nine role.

All this indicates Jesus’ place in the team and even in the squad is clearly under threat, with Pep often preferring to deploy a midfielder in a false nine role rather than him up front.

Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) should also be returning from quarantine soon, to give Pep another option up-front.

One Man Team?

.

Roy Hodgson has refuted all previous claims about his Palace side being a one-man team that relies too much on Wilfried Zaha (£7.3m).

But with the Ivory Coast international surprisingly left out of their squad, Palace lacked any kind of attacking threat.

With Andros Townsend moving up from midfield to join Jordan Ayew in attack, Palace lacked Zaha’s electric pace on the break.

Without his speed and willingness to take players on, Palace found themselves unable to get out of their own half, also due to City’s relentless pressing.

After the game, Hodgson said his side relied too much on playing the ball back to goalkeeper Vincente Guaita (£4.8m) which indicates they missed having Zaha as an out-ball.

As mentioned above, Palace couldn’t manage a single shot on target, and their expected goals rating is the lowest of Double Gameweek 19.

Eagles fans will be hoping Zaha will be fit for the Gameweek 20 fixture against West Ham, after being ruled out of the City game with an injury he sustained against Arsenal.

Speaking after the game, Hodgson bemoaned the “blatant mistakes” his side made in the game.

We made some quite blatant mistakes in the second half, often playing the ball back to much to the goalkeeper, and it cost us. The goals they scored were fantastic goals but if we could have done what we did in the first half, we could have made it that bit harder and not lost by such a big margin.”

    I have red a few headlines like "Who will Arsenal replace Ozil with". I assume journalists only looking for something to write about. And thats there job after all.

    The way I see it is Ozil has been replaced by others in the first team. It happened over time. There was no direct transfer needed and there is none needed now.

    They do lack something but doubt it can be bought with just one player. Difficult to nail exactly what it is.

    It was a pity we didn't see more from that wonder boy cause the boy has talent. Just wasn't to be

      Have you sold greenwood yet?

      1. Team Bobcat
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Yes 🙂

        I sold forSoucek this week. Not feeling it though. Would prefer another differential like maddison or the like...

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      I like their young players.

    3. Qaiss

      Ozil was amazing in his first 4 years at Arsenal, so he wasn't a fail. Even at Real Madrid, he did stuff that KDB could never do. Arsenal should have built more of a team around him because we wasted his talent so much.

      He may have been declining but the likes of Willock aren't more talented than Ozil, so something obviously happened behind the scenes, probably when he defended human rights and Arsenal chose revenue from China, over supporting him in that.

      I'd like to see us sign Buendia or someone and there are rumours it could happen.

      1. Team Bobcat
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        I agree. I think he was the architect of his own downfall in ways. Something was not right though. Came accros as risky or volatile might be a word to describe him. Only guessing of course. Might have been too much of a gamble to build the team around such a player.

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          An architect of their downfall was Sanchez. Was the best player in the league in 2017 and went to a rival team who at the time weren't even better than Arsenal. Should have just stayed.

          For Ozil, I just feel like he's disrespected so much for someone who was at the club for over 7 years. Our fanbase are awful, it'll never be as bad as the way some hounded out Wenger though. Ozil gave us his prime years remember, and was brilliant in the first few seasons, with Walcott and Giroud wasting numerous chances.

      It's well-documented Arsenal are looking for a creative central midfielder though, whether that be a traditional 10-type, or more likely, someone a bit more versatile. Perhaps 2 more...

    5. Kane and Ablett
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Shoot I just bought ESR thinking he’d be nailed at 10 for the rest of the season and they’d save the £300k a week

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          They reached a settlement for Ozil, which I doubt writes off his entire 7m salary. Arsenal probably won't sign anyone this January, because their long-term targets are too expensive right now (e.g. Buendia for Norwich at the top of the Champisonship). So more likely a loan or nothing. And in either case, you'd think ESR would be prefered for a while longer anyway.

    6. TNB
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Whose more important if you could only have one for the rest of the season:

        1. Kane
        2. Son

        1. Kellz86
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Kane - always take the man on PKs

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

          I am thinking Kane. More midfield options around.

          1. TNB
              1 month, 10 days ago

              I'm leaning that way. Thinking of taking Son out and get Kane in. I'll replace him with mids like Barnes, Smith Rowe, Gundo etc

          2. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Who’s.
            Son.

          3. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            Probably Kane but both great options and son is arguably the best value

          4. Team Bobcat
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 10 days ago

            I think kane. Although spurs are not lighting up the world I tup Kane for golden boot before Son. Should be there or thereabouts. Whether he is worth the extra. Thats a different debate..

            1. TNB
                1 month, 10 days ago

                Is he worth the extra though? Like someone said above, there is a lot more mid options

                1. Team Bobcat
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

                  He could be. I have my team set up in such a wag that I always have extra and that can be a waste also.

                  Personally I would say he is the best 10.5m, 11m player in the game from fpl point.

                  So yes from me

                  1. Team Bobcat
                    • 4 Years

              Result sare in.. Best to refer to top 10 in World Standing at the moment.

              Of the top ten only four have kane. 5th 6th 7th and 9th.

              So on that evidence no not worth only just..

                    Yeah still no chips used and sneaking back up to 60k for now. Consolidating before I go chip crazy between 25 and 29.

                    How about you?

                      I’m on 90 -8. Annoyed at myself for selling Holding over Dallas but hey, still happy.

                          I know. So so silly. Big shame that Meslier didn’t play as well.

                    You could end up 130+. Amazing. Glad you have both keepers playing. Meslier no show was painful.

                    Yep, same. On 64-4 so figured that was closer to average and might get a few more normies to respond too.

                    Well that’s a shame but with 11 to go you should crack that 100 mark. You’ll hopefully look back on this with fond memories.

                      My cup opponent has Justin first bench. Zouma better play the second game. I wouldn't even mind if he gets a CS, still better than 8+? off the bench

                          I’m in 30k game week but still 1m plus, mainly due to freaky bad luck. Seriously thinking about writing a book on it. It almost sounds made up.

                                    Not sure what to say. How annoying for you. Find the positives though.

                          Well done Gooner. Great result tonight. Loving your young players. I’d love to take Saka to mums for a cup of tea.

                        I'm happy, 79 so far with 13 to go on bb.

                        Not having stones when almost all ml rivals had him was a little bit of a bitter pill to swallow, but can't complain too much!

                          13 to go. You’re having a laugh. Well done with that score. You’ll absolutely smash it this week. I’m flabbergasted.

                          How happy are you with that? I
                          Think it’s a fine score.

                          Well with all things considered you’re doing alright this week. Especially as it’s so freakish. Having Stones was pure luck and if you had him you be in the 70’s.

                            Yeah, happy I picked Dias over Cancelo at least! That'll probably bite me next game mind...

                          Wow, Auba captain. How old school. Have you been quite relaxed about things or did you get him in a few weeks ago?

                            Check my team I’ve made no changes since GW1 🙂

                            Submitted an article on ghost teams but they’ve too much content on at the moment. Auba has been the biggest regret of the entire experiment but my team differential percentage has crept back up from 3% to 24% in recent weeks so some decisions were good

                        77 (-12 .... yep don’t ask) with 13 to go on BB.

                        Up from 121k to 85k though so not all bad despite the eye-watering hits!

                          Not all bad? That’s a decent score. Just doesn’t look as good with all these bangers. With 13 to go you’re absolutely in the mix Don. Well done to you sir.

                            Thanks Rupe. Tbh it’s just the hits that made me feel sick (thought I’d taken a -8 but it was a -12 lol).

                            Thank G-d for Stones and Dias that’s all I can say!!

                              Yeah. My back line got me 60 of my 90.

                                You dark horse! 90 (-8) with 11 to play is pretty exceptional!

                                Cheeky mare!

                          with

                          TAA, Justin, Stone, KDB, Salah (TC), Bruno, Soucek, Vardy and Antonio to go.

                          Don't know how to feel about this score today

                            It’s going to be a big one for you. I’m praying Salah does well against Burnley for you.

                          Not a great first round, but at least I have plenty skin in the game still.

                        My 12 point hit for Foden, stones and Antonio was definitely better than my decision to bench bamford for his hat trick a couple of months back.......

                          Probably, but not totally unsubstantiated.

                              Rumours of an ankle knock and he’ll be rested against Villa but surely Villa are too good for Pep roulette on KDB

                              Yep it’s either Kane and 2 cheapies or 3 cheapies and invest elsewhere. I’m on the latter

                              I rage transferred laca last week. Never again. Don't know what I was thinking

                              I feel more disappointed with Laca than Zouma, Cancelo and the lacklustre holy trinity. Against Newcastle and in form, he seemed to be constantly around the goal and got nothing as every other player (bar Xhaka) racked up the points. Been a bad week. Think I’ll switch off until Sunday and review

                            Is this worth a bench boost, I WC 2 weeks ago and struggling to use the BB this week, as I had Yedlin.. Yedlin to Shaw, or shall I wait?

                              No I’d play Bamford over coufal and save

                            Is Cedric a threat to Bellerin's gametime?

                              Not according to Arteta.

                              He just made bellerin get 0 gametime. Seems threatening to me.

                              1. GreennRed

                                Bellerin probably rested though. Cedric is a nice price, likes to attack.

                              second that !

                            Doesn't affect me in any way but can anyone who watched the game explain how Cedric gets the 3BP ahead of Aubameyang who scored 2 goals? 37 seems strangely low for a 2 goal performance so I originally thought he'd missed a pen but seems not

                            1. Black Knights
                              • 8 Years

                              Cedric got a clean sheet too, of course. So that’s 2 involvements each. Auba missed some chances.

                              Missed a couple of big chances

                                Fair enough

                              1 month, 10 days ago

                              Auba had one big chance missed and 3 shots off target (-6 in deductions combined)

                              Does seem low but mids get less bps for goals and presume Aubameyang missed a big chance (or two)

                            McCarthy, Soucek, Bruno, Salah, Wilson and Bamford blanks, no goals, just 3 assists and 3 CS's. 57 - 4 with 7 to play.

                              Chances for a lot of them to still do something.

                            Aubameyang captain at home to Leeds for one week in 24, for us GW25 wildcarders.

                              Not sure I can trust him. Leeds will be much tougher game than tonight

                                Tbh if Newcastle had parked the bus it would have been a harder game. Just seemed like Bruce was sending a message as in "This is what happens when we don't play 10 men behind the ball".

                                  That is actually possible if fans aren't happy the way with they play. Haven't followed.

                              Will watch how he goes before then might be worth getting before then. On form he'll score against anyone.

                            So Liverpool couldn't break Newcastle down but Arsenal ease past them.

                                Not yet I mean. Laporte was once TC:d, and so will Stones also be.

                                    Out of millions, and we are very few here compared to that. And had someone here even given armband to him, we certainly would know.

                            Captain salah + rashford v +8

                            Also have some other same players.

                              You. Even if they do nothing it’s 6 points you’d think. They’ll get a return between them.

                              I think you should be okay to win this round, if nothing crazy happens again.

                              If you do the lotto every week and pick the same numbers sooner or later your horses will come home or close to it. That result of his is a bit like that

                                Agreed, it's just strange when you try to be an active manager and a ghost team scores so well in any GW. Granted the lad had an OR of 7 million until this week.

                              Rodgers expects Jamie Vardy to be available for Tuesday. "Yes everyone should be fine. Dennis [Praet] is out for a period of time. Papy Mendy has a slight strain in his neck."

                                  I hope this rejuvenates Auba, not only for the sake of Arsenal. Would be nice to have another premium mid option so that I'm not hoping all the ones I own but haven't captained blank every week.

                                  Chances of kurt getting his place back?
                                  Longer term worth getting rid?

                                  Dias, cancelo, awb, Cresswell, zouma.

                                  Likely playing 3 def most weeks, so someone has to go!

                                    Out of those players Z out is absolutely no brainer.

                                    Cashed him in for Mitchell.
                                    Look at Zouma points past six weeks not worth holding?

                                      Agree with this - Zouma to Mitchell as 5th def and use the money elsewhere

                                      Yea.. just think they are bound to come good!

                                      I kept him purely for the dbl.

                                      All likely hood he's the one who goes, and mitchell looking a good back option for now.

                                    He better not get a yellow.

                                      Ah I didn't even realise that. Yellow confirmed.

                                  Triple West Ham tomorrow.

                                  With WBA beating Wolves how do you see this game being played?

                                    Think it will be tight, can see another 1-0 WH win but that's probably more hope than expectation

                                  Cancelo one pointer in a 4 nil win and now to wake up to a Lacazette blank in a 3 nil win... frustrating season!

                                    Bad luck. Yeah me too. After two reds in 15 I’m now on 3 out of 4 and can’t get things right.

                                  What do you think is a decent return for bb?

                                      Kk...think I'm reasonable happy.. 16 with martinez to go.
                                      Some save points a cs and will be golden!

                                    I think double figures is s decent return for bench boost taking no hits. If you have to take a hit or two for a playing bench then would need 15+ to be satisfied with it.

                                    We are all satisfied some more easily than others. If you have used it this week least you can focus without that option now for remainder of the season
