Injury latest on De Bruyne as Gundogan emerges as Man City’s best FPL attacker

Man City 2-0 Aston Villa

  • Goals: Bernardo Silva (£7.4m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Rodrigo (£5.4m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m)
  • Bonus points: Rodrigo x3, Gündogan x2, João Cancelo x1 (£5.8m), Ruben Dias x1 (£5.8m), B Silva x1

KEVIN!

Pep Guardiola and owners of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) alike will be sweating on his fitness after the player was forced off in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

There were already concerns about the Belgian’s condition going into Wednesday night considering he was given a rest during the final 20 minutes of the 4-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace.

De Bruyne was able to start for the 13th straight Premier League game but he lasted just 58 minutes in the second match of Double Gameweek 19.

And Guardiola only heaped further concern on De Bruyne’s owners by confirming post-match that the injury could be muscular.

“Kevin De Bruyne put his hand on his leg, so I have the feeling it will be something muscular. These things happen with this amount of games.” – Pep Guardiola

It is, of course, too soon for either Guardiola or Fantasy managers to know the full extent of De Bruyne’s injury and the player is likely to have a scan on Thursday to assess the damage.

It is worth saying that there is slightly longer than usual for De Bruyne to recover considering that Manchester City’s next Premier League match does not take place until next Tuesday.

There is also an FA Cup match against Cheltenham Town on Saturday which will allow Guardiola a chance to rest De Bruyne.

Crucially, it means we will have at least two pre-match press conferences for the manager to update us on the Belgian although not many in the Fantasy community will enjoy being at Guardiola’s mercy in a media briefing…

HAPPINESS IS A WARM GÜN

Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m) extended his impressive run of form for Manchester City on Wednesday evening.

His fifth goal of the season, and second of Double Gameweek 19, helped the German international to a third double-digit haul since Gameweek 13, more than any colleague across the same period.

In total, Gündogan has racked up 54 points in his last seven matches (7.7 per game) and, with West Bromwich Albion (away) and Sheffield United (home) up next, interest in his signature is sure to increase.

His new advanced role has been well-documented of late but what helped him get on the scoresheet against Aston Villa was his place in the penalty pecking order.

With a flagging De Bruyne removed from proceedings after 58 minutes, it fell to Gündogan to dispatch a 90th-minute spot-kick after Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) had forced a handball out of Matty Cash (£5.0m).

And if the Belgian is set to miss a few games, then Gündogan’s stock can only increase further, especially if he has a stronger claim to penalties than Jesus and Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m), who he shared the pitch with during stoppage time against Aston Villa.

Raheem Sterling (£11.4m) had gone off by the time Gündogan put Manchester City 2-0 up but his troubles from the spot this season have been well-documented.

SILVA LINING

For the second time in three Premier League matches, Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) was selected to occupy the false-nine role for Manchester City.

With Jesus consigned to the bench for the second time during that run, Guardiola’s preference for a more fluid front-three comprised of midfielders is becoming clear.

Judging by his pre-match comments, it sounds as if that outset may continue until either Jesus or Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) can start finding the net again – when given an opportunity, that is.

“Strikers have to score goals. The way we want to play does not depend on strikers, centre-backs, full-backs. We have a special way to play, sometimes we need strikers, sometimes we don’t.” – Pep Guardiola

Silva is already reaping the rewards of his false-nine role as he scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Aston Villa.

But he went close on other occasions including a well-saved header at the back post in the third minute.

“Bernardo Silva, I said many times, is one of the most intelligent players I have ever seen. He can do everything in every position and he has the quality to score goals too. It’s really good for him and us. A fantastic goal.” – Pep Guardiola

CANCELO CULTURE

The João Cancelo (£5.8m) rollercoaster still had plenty of dips and loop-the-loops in the second match of Double Gameweek 19.

Fresh from a one-point cameo against Crystal Palace, the full-back returned to the side on Wednesday evening, playing in the left-back role initially and securing a clean sheet and one bonus.

That made for an eight-point score for the Double Gameweek while John Stones (£5.1m) and Ruben Dias (£5.8m) enjoyed 27 and 17-point hauls.

But Cancelo certainly had chances to get close to his central-defensive counterparts as he struck the crossbar in the first half, which would have resulted in a De Bruyne assist had he found the back of the net.

And in the second half, the Portuguese international drove through the middle of the pitch and fired an arrow of a shot at the bottom corner before Emiliano Martínez (£5.1m) turned away a certain goal.

It is worth saying that Cancelo was more involved in the game during the first half when stationed on the left-hand side of Manchester City’s defence.

However, he was forced to staff the right-back berth after the 28th minute when Kyle Walker (£6.1m) was forced off with a knock and replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) – a switch that somewhat limited his involvement.

That said, Cancelo’s chances of starting games and avoiding further benchings could be boosted if Walker faces more time on the sidelines.

“I haven’t spoken to the doctor. If Kyle Walker asks to be out, it is because something happened. Hopefully just a kick.” – Pep Guardiola

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Walker (Zinchenko 28′); Gündogan, Rodri, De Bruyne (Jesus 59′); Foden, B Silva, Sterling (Mahrez 72′).

Aston Villa XI (4-2-3-1): Martínez; Targett (N Taylor 75′), Mings, Konsa, Cash; McGinn, D Luiz; Grealish, Barkley (Ramsey 68′), B Traoré (El Ghazi 68′); Watkins.

    Horrible, horrible GW of a dreadful season.

    Rashford (c) tops it all off 🙁

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years

      in* should I say

    2. One of Those Days

      Chin up!

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Cheers. Trying not to reflect on it too much.. but feels I'm getting shot down every week.

    3. Jersey Boy
      • 2 Years

      58 for me with two to play. This GW is a new low point for me in FPL

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Ouch. You deserve some luck at some point

      It was pretty risky considering the options, but not as expensive as it could have been.

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Needed to take a risk. Expected 2 starts and at least one goal. He had returned in EVERY away game this season. I cap and he blanks twice in a row

    5. HashAttack

      Rashford and James are my big disappointments of the week - but at least you haven't lost too much on the captain choice, only 5 points less than Bruno or KDB, 2 points less than Son and 1 point less than Vardy

      Kane's the highest scoring "big hitter" and that's only 9 points

      1. Coys96
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        yeah the only advantage

        Johnstone, treble Leeds, Werner, Rashford, James, Soucek (seems like a haul given my GW) are my disappointments

    6. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      More points than me chief so chin up

  2. diesel001
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Kane (9) outscores KDB (8).
    KDB (8) outscores Fernandes (7).
    Fernandes (7) outscores Son (5)
    Son (5) outscores Vardy (4)

    Salah to outscore all of them?

    1. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      He'll fill the gap at 6 with 3+3

    2. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Hope so

      Glad I kept Kane and Son.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Fernandes also got 8. The dud was Rashford. If you had him you're the one that's SOL.

    4. Captain Vantastic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Fernandes has 8. Try again.

    5. Karhumies
      • 8 Years

      Vardy (4) outscores Salah (3)

    3. Only a Hazard of time
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      9! Johnstone and Romeu helping me out there

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      11 (johnstone, son, bamford, dallas)

      But feels ok as have scored well overall

    5. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      35 (stones)

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        But would you have benched stones without bb?

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          My only debate was Stones v Bamford and I thought in my head stones 8 PTS Bamford 9 pts... way wrong, I didn't really debate too much as i kinda knew I would bb anyway.

      2. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Doesn't count then

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          I honestly was benching him if I didn't bb. I thought Bamford would get 9pts and stones 8 pts lol

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            I'm not questioning you and fair play on the big score

            But you 100% couldnt have benched stones with those fixtures in a dgw if you werent bb'ing

            1. _Ninja_
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 11 days ago

              Maybe I would have thought about it more if I wasn't Bbing. I though stones would get 6 v palace but I though villa would score and he'd get 2 pts. It would have been a tough decision and I might have went him over Bamford when it came down to it.

              1. kennethrhcp

                Some scoring any which way 🙂

                My 2 cents. Stones was ahead of james aswell. James was always unlikely to play 2

                1. _Ninja_
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years

                  Yeah you're prob right, my predicted james haul v Fulham was slightly misguided lol

                    I dont know why I argued for stones to be in your 1st 11 🙂

    Anyone doing worse than 60 with 5 to play?

    1. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      69 with Wilson and Grealish isn't much better tbh

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      69 with 3 to play but I benched boosted 🙁 Had 12 DGW players

    3. Zladan

      I feel for you guys. There are some bad scores out there.

      This week is definitely feast or famine.

      I'm lucky enough to be in the 3% of teams that have Antonio + Stones. But even then I had my share of fails with Zouma and James.

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Missed out on Antonio but got Schmeichel's 17 points instead

        71 for my back 5 (Schmeichel, Coufal, Stones, Cancelo, AWB) - Shame that James was my BB defender

    5. Danno - Emre Canada
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Could be 73 two to play

  7. LǝgleSs e|even

  12. Alisson WondHaaland
    • 5 Years

    KDB - 8
    Bruno - 8

    Ive never been so excited for Salah (C) and Robbo

    1. Surfeit of Lampteys
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      You watched any Liverpool games recently?

      1. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        So what? Form is temporary. I know its optimistic but KDB and Bruno have set the bar low hence Ill be easily pleased

        1. Surfeit of Lampteys
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Yeah nothing wrong with being optimistic but Liverpool do seem in a rut atm.

  13. Surfeit of Lampteys
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Unsure whether to wildcard or just take -8/12 hit. Just don't think it's an ideal week to wildcard. I dunno. Anyone any thoughts?

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      No need for WC. Take your -8 and reassess the next week

      1. Surfeit of Lampteys
        • 3 Years

        Good advice, thank you.

    Funny game. Feels like everything, except Antonio, went shiiit. Still 110 points and Salah, Robertson, Grealish and Martinez to go.

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      If I had that score that would be my best relative GW of the season 🙂

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      110 points is good but I can see what you mean. You must be relatively happy with Dias and Coufal?

  15. Zladan
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    United 6 points clear of LFC (minus VVD & Gomez) is nuts.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 11 days ago

      3 points really

      Then u factor in he ref calls

      Then its pool ahead by at least 5 ponts

    How many players does everyone have to go?

      2

    2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 4 Years

      Salah(C), Robbo, Targett & Wilson

    3. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      3, hanging onto a little bit of hope

    4. Granville
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Salah(TC), Grealish and Martinez.

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Nice - 5 to go!

    5. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      4 - including Salah(c)

    6. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      4, pleased with everything so far

    7. Free Hat
      • 2 Years

      4

    8. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years

      Salah(c), Robbo, Watkins

    9. Freshy

      Marti-Robo-Mo

    10. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Mo (c) Robbo Grealish Targett and Watkins. 131 points so far

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Omg. You could be the top scorer of the week if Mo hits a huge haul.

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Unlikely but good to at least half my rank. Ederson, Dias and Stones proving a useful triple up

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Wow!

    11. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      3. Salah, Robbo and Targett.

    12. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      3. Salah, Grealish, Martinez.

      I need Salah and Martinez to score more than 8 points for me to progress in the cup. I reckon my chances are good.

    13. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      5 with Salah Mané (c) Robertson Martinez Watkins

  17. Pedersen
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    What's up with fernandes? Points given for 2 assist, but still only 1 written and baps not calculated for 2 assists

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I think you're forgetting his 3 points vs. Liverpool!

      1. Pedersen
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Ohh yeah....

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Why would he get 2 assists?

    3. Congressman
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      What two assists? His other points are from the first game.

  18. BenDavies
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    I am in genuine disbelief that Kane has now outscored both Bruno and KDB in a double gameweek for the latter two. You'd be laughed out the building if you told everyone you were captaining Kane this week.

    1. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      You didn’t think Kane could potentially do well this week

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I knew he could do well, but not better than Salah and KDB

    2. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      A few people in my ML did exactly that. Not happy at all

    3. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Always happens that there are a handful of SGW who outscore popular DGW options.
      It’s the reason I kept Kane and Son

      1. BenDavies
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Luckily I kept Kane too and offloaded Son

  19. Dele
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Is 97 with 5 to play poor?

    1. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      no its good

    2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      About half the average

    3. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      No it's absolutely awful score to be honest

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      You know it's not
      Top 10k is 87 (-3) = 84 after hits with 3.0 players remaining
      If on a BB, avg is 95 so slightly above average (but with more players to come)

  20. PrestigeWorldwidewidewide..…
    • 1 Year

    never understood these obvious questions, feel like you already know the answer and ask anyway

  21. The Orienteer - find me in …
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    yes - is that what you wanted to know?

  22. Kaneyonero
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Don't be surprised if Salah bags 4 goals

    1. UNDERWORLD7
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I would be extremely surprised

    2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Would suit me nicely as a Captainer

    3. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Will settle even for assist

      1. Daniel - WC Active
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I am happy with brace

  23. Fudgy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Such a depressing week. Salah to put nail in coffin now

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Depressing week in an even more depressing season....

    2. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      You hit 100 no?

  24. Cahill
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 11 days ago

    Quick one!

    How TF did Bruno get that assist?
    The exact same as Chilwell against Fulham that wasn’t given!?

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      I think bc Bruno meant to cross it to Cavani, whereas Chilwell didn't mean to cross to Mount 🙂

      Still too generous though

      1. Cahill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Haha

        1. Cahill
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          What a load of nonsense from FPL! Zero consistency

    2. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Bruno is capable of going to their houses if he doesnt get it from FPL towers.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Chilwell's is fair because the cross was aimed at Tammy and Mount only got it because of the deflection

      In theory they are saying Bruno's was intended at Cavani, but still a little dubious as it wasn't really going anywhere near him... https://i.ibb.co/JHfCbzV/Cavani.jpg

  25. Free Hat

    Glad that is over with as non KDB owner.

    Now only things to look forward too.

    1. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      We got so lucky

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        I always feel lucky as non kdb owner or very unlucky when I own and (c) him.

      On 106 with 3 Villa to play, Cup opponent is on 74 with only Wilson in that game.
      As long as he doesn't score 8 or more goals I should go through for my best Cup run ever.
      And my highest ever GW score!!!

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        strong

    • Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      On 82 points with 3 to play and still not a single goal from anyone in my team this week. Hopefully Salah rectifies that tomorrow

    • Sun Jihai

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 11 days ago

          Reminds me of my GW1 score (91) where I was 60k OR but then it has all been downhill from there!

          1. Free Hat
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 11 days ago

            Last 3 seasons also very good gw1.

            But this season gw3 wildcard was a real low in Fpl.

            But steadily getting back now to 300k. Was 2.4mil in gw11 :s

        He did Kane to Vardy this week as well! Although he did also bring in Stones and Antonio

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Yeah, pretty low TV too, just 102.3m

        1. KAPTAIN KANE

          Good spot

            Seems to be him looking at the league he is in, the nationality is odd though
            https://www.drafthound.com/football/premier-league/articles/mini-league/
            The team is probably being managed by that website though tbf

      Those Targett points are really jammy, imagine if he also plays vs Newcastle

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        Can see Newcastle scoring that game bizarrely

    • Jammy Dodger

      Need Salah to score 7+ points to hit a 150 gw! #crossedeverything
