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.

    The lack of Cancelo attacking returns even more frustrating when you compare Bruno's 'assist' tonight and Cancelo vs. Newcastle (no assist)

      Can't believe De Bruyne went off on 59 tonight. Pep just finds new ways of pepping me every week.

            Why? FPL isn't that important for real managers 😉

            it's a pulled muscle, what you want them to do, get a massuer out there?

        Blame KDB. He could have laid on the ground for three minutes and had the training staff come on.

          Maybe bcz you are in the same mini league as Pep? Who knows these days... WHO KNOWS!?!?!(balls)!?!?!?!?!?

          Him playing 2 mins more would have been a 15k rank swing for me.

        When Pereira and Soyuncu come back from injuries who will play in Leicester first XI:
        a) Castagne
        b) Justin
        c) Fonfana

        1. HashAttack
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          Could be all 3 with one OOP

        2. Marcin the Pole
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 26 days ago

          With Europa returning, we'll look to rotate quite regularly, although I could potentially see Ricardo dropping into right midfield and Justin/Castagne both playing. No way Fofana gets dropped however, the man is a monster.

              Raphinha to Gundogan a no brainier?
              Only nagging doubt is that he uses up my 3rd city spot so I can’t get kdb

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 26 days ago

                Not sure- Raphinha could do well in Newcastle game

                Do you need KdB if you have Gundogan?

                  I love that Gundogan is now KDB's equal all of the sudden

                  1. gogs67
                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      Gundogan could have had a hat trick last night, I've no problems in FF terms classing him as equal to KDB currently.
                      This game comes down to points.

                  What do you think about Bamford -> Cavani move?
                  I've got exact funds for it, and it seems that Cavani will rise in the next days for sure...

                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Same answer as Raphinha question- big risk as Bamford could do well v Newand guaranteed to start- no certainty Cavani starts

                    1. dunas_dog

                      * v Newcastle and

                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Don't know if Cavani is going to be rested soon.

                    if you're that keen go for it but i wouldn't be blindsided with price changes anymore.
                    too many variable, with covid and fa cup games still to play

                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Long term Leicester defender:
                    a) Castagne
                    b) Justin
                    c) Fonfana

                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      I would pick a long term

                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 26 days ago

                        a) Castagne
                        b) Justin
                        c) Fonfana

                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      Justin for me, although its close. Think he'll hold his slot at LB, given Ricardo can't play there and Castagne is unproven there (for us).

                    2 months, 26 days ago

                    Is Robertson + Watkins to Cancelo + Antonio for -4 worth it?

                      • 9 Years
                      2 months, 26 days ago

                      Why did you choose Cancelo over Dias mate?

                      1. Atletico Junior
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 8 Years
                        2 months, 26 days ago

                        Could be Dias, but prefer to have full backs

                        1. james 101
                          • 9 Years
                          2 months, 26 days ago

                          Leaning that way too

                          1. Atletico Junior

                            2 months, 26 days ago

                            Besides that, with Walker injured and Ake+Laporte returning from injuries I think Cancelo could be safer

                      I’d like to add a second city defender to stones.

                        Don't want to change your mind but probably in gw23 one of the two must go

                          what happens then?

                            What do you think?

                              What a loser you are, could just answer a question but decide to take a dig

                                You are an idiot that asking what happens in gw23 instead to see by yourself the fixtures.Or maybe its something difficult for you?

                                  Because I thought it was an actual meaningful comment instead of gameweek 23 just being a bad fixture, you obviously don't get rid of a player because of one bad fixture. Idiotic comment from you, guess I should have known.

                                    Of course you don't get rid of a player for one only difficult game.ManCity's fixtures from 23-28 are really tough.

                          They should get some DGWs added in, it should help offset the tough fixtures. I've got 2 and don't plan to sell until 29 when they'll blank.

                            Yeah but i imagine everyone will WC in gw 25/26.

                            In addition, they have already kept CS against MUN, ARS, and were a meaningless stoppage time goal away from keeping one against CHE. Very close to having a 60% CS record against the big 6.

                              Different games away from home.I have Stones and Dias and will sell one of them.

                      I am being held hostage by Salah, Bruno and KDB. I cannot get rid of them for fear of my rank collapsing when they haul, and even when they DO haul my rank still goes down a bit for the two I don't captain. What is the point.

                        unfortunately this is not the ideal week to get rid of one due to Spurs v Liv and potential rest of Bruno vs SHU (he will surely play in FA cup vs LIV)
                        If Kdb injury more than 2 weeks i'd probably only move him to Kane
                        Tough choice

                          Zero chance Bruno gets rested in a league game

                            2 months, 26 days ago

                            it's a lot of mins in a row with little rest in between
                            they might play it safe given the evidence of kdb injury
                            SHU seems like a good time for a rest, then Arsenal 3 days later

                              he'll throw the cup match. League is so much more important

                                lets see how it pans out
                                yellow card in the cup would be a big spanner
                                actually not sure when it resets

                            That's a 0.7 premium though. What makes you think he's worth it?

                            I've used BB and now have Johnstone and Loris as my keepers. Pickford and Martinez have games in hand, so should I be targeting one of them and keep Johnstone as cover/ rotate?

                              No need to transfer them in now, save the transfers until you're at 2 FT with nothing else to transfer on

                              i'd focus on Martinez, no need for two expensive keepers when you've played your BB

                              This has been my best ever week in fpl 🙂 kdb and Bruno not going mad was great, hopefully a Salah haul and no cleanie for pool tomorrow. Hits have paid back around 60 points so far which is insane. GL everyone

                                Assuming KDB is injured, best option here please?

                                1. KDB >> Sterling

                                4. Save FT, play Soucek

                                  would you consider KDB TC failed with 24 pts?

                                    Could have been better but could be worse.

                                    Absolutely, it's 8p when you really look at it, he would've been your captain either way. I was expecting 15.

                                    You would really want to have at least a couple of goals to consider it ok. 8pts is not great to triple really.

                                      There is difference between failure and great. Average or slightly below average result imo.

                                    Looks a fail but Salah decides it if he beats him and scores 12 total.

                                    Nope, it isn't a failure like TC Rashford would have been. I'll give you 7/10 or is C+ in some countries.

                                    It's definitely an improvement on previous years' scores though.

                                    With you on that one. It's not a disaster but not great either. We have to hope that the next TC opportunity doesn't produce for others, and we will captain that player then anyway to soften the blow.

                                      I had KdB(c) 8(16pts)

                                      Two more minutes on the field this match and KdB's score would have been acceptable. 10(20pts)
                                      Sterling not missing that penalty the previous match and KdB's score would have been acceptable 11(22pts)
                                      But watching both matches I felt robbed of a good result 13(26pts)

                                      As it is, I was left slightly disappointed with 8(16pts) but this would be amplified to a 'fail' had I triple captained him.

                                          I’m thinking of KDB + Wilson >> Gundogan/Maddison + Kane, reckon it’s worth it?

                                            Same players, just Salah(c) though.

                                            Doubt it. Only Salah to go for me, but all chips intact.

                                            First time watching Salah without owning him this season - your TC is making me nervous.

                                          Is this the end of the fantastic four midfield (Salah, Bruno, KdB, Son)?

                                          Salah blanking for a while, KdB tired and possibly injured, Son not scoring as many against anyone but Leeds, Bruno chipping in still with the odd assist, but also looking tired. Then we've got Maddison, Barnes, Gundogan hauling consistently and Grealish back as well
                                          Who's shipping 1-2 of the Fantastic Four and for whom?

                                            I would still keep all of those.

                                            I have KdB Bruno Son and money itb.

                                            I'm thinking of adding Salah or Kane, or both if I sell KdB. Maybe I should go with mid price mids instead.

                                            Grealish is a perma blank these days... not sure Barkley will keep his place based on today either.

                                              Maybe just the end of you or something something? No one really knows at the end.

                                              I have all in my team and plan to ship KdB and Son (and get Kane in the process)

                                                I've gone without that combo all season, Son and Kane and 2 of them has been the way to go for me, worked well so far, am going to drop another one of them now and spread the money even better
