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.

    Any stats on how Sterling as performed in the past with Kdb not on the pitch?
    Tempted by this switch until gw25 wildcard

    otherwise i'll wait a week and could go Kdb+Rodrigo to Gundy+Kane (up to 6.8m mid)

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 6 days ago

      Iirc their attacking output drops without him

    2. Flair

      Don't think KDB not playing is a benefit to any of our players aside from Bernardo (becomes chief creator) and Gundo (due to pens).

      Sterling haul coming up

    4. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      pretty sure every city asset will perform worse without kdb on the pitch

  2. Flair

    Bruno (C) over KDB next week then. Expecting a big haul

    1. Chandler Bing

      Ditto

    2. Bushwhacker

      Meh. Sheff Utd will park the bus, there’s nothing terribly dynamic about United in that scenario, struggled again today. Probably my captain choice too but not expecting much.

      I'm on Bruno right now. But I feel I might punt on Bamford depending on Newcaslte look vs Villa.

    4. max99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bamford due to hit big

  3. Chandler Bing

    1 month, 6 days ago

    Is City triple defense a viable option? Best defense in the league with players who are always involved in the offensive end of the team. Seriously considering it now with KdB flagged.

    1. noquarternt

        On 75 with 4 to go. Think Salah hauling is the biggest risk to me not making it

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Good luck, could do with a Salah haul though.

            • 8 Years
            1 month, 6 days ago

            I actually have Salah but with no captain so could be OK depending on the magnitude of the haul

      • The Knights Template
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        61 with Salah(c), Robbo and Shotkins to come. Might be close.

          Got a chance.

      • F_Ivanovic
        • 5 Years

        Cheers TM. On 85 no Pool but still Martinez and Grealish to go so should be OK I guess!

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Should be.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        89 with Salah and TAA to go. Could do with a TAA haul before I sell him for Cancelo.

        Hipe the Villa lads and Robbo stay quiet

      • mojoindojo

        There should be one get out of jail card reentry if you have failed only once. 🙂
        What say TM?

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 11 Years

          Would have higher safety scores if that was the case.

    2. Holmes

      Somehow my red arrow is less than 50k even after going with Soucek(c), phewww... Could have been worse.

      1. tuturututu

          Play one please:

          A) Coufal
          B) Justin
          C) Alioski

            Let FA Cup games play.

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 6 days ago

              TBF Alioski isn’t playing, Coufal likely rested, Justin may well be too.

                • 11 Years
                1 month, 6 days ago

                Chances are one of the 1st 11 get injured.

                1. Bushwhacker
                  • 1 Year
                  1 month, 6 days ago

                  Possible. I suspect a lot of B teams this weekend, hoping to see Liverpool’s for sure.

      2. Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 6 days ago

        Feels good that theres not much pressure on Salah(c) since the other captains scored low. Would of course be over the moon with a haul but even 1 assist would make my day

        1. max99
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3. tuturututu
          1 month, 6 days ago

          113 with Robbo, Firmino and Salah(c) to go. Would love to see Firmino haul to make me punting on him reasonable..

            Nice. Triple Liverpool here too.
            Robbo, Mane, Salah (TC- hope he goes big) + Martinez.
            93 total atm and hoping for a big finish.

          2. Bushwhacker
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 6 days ago

            Not expecting any haul against Burnley I’m afraid, it’ll be tight. Bobby might not even start, Minamino beckons ... unless he plays 90 on Sunday.

        • Sz21
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 6 days ago

          Was keen on Mane-> KDB but not so much now.
          Supposing he is a doubt for next game or a no go- anything else standing out?
          Some options-
          Dallas/Coufal -> Shaw.
          Soucek -> Gundogan/Saka.
          Robbo -> Cancelo/Dias.

          McCarthy.
          Robbo, Stones, Coufal.
          Salah, Son, Mane, Fernandes, Soucek.
          Antonio, Bamford.
          Forster, Dallas, Brewster, Ferguson.

            Usually all action CM whenever get goal/assist end up with BPS.
            Because their BPS are already boosted with # of passes, tackles, Interceptions, maybe chances created, Duels won.
            Especially is low scoring games. You can see similar thing happened in Leicester & Man City game as well (Ndidi & Rodrigo getting max BPS)

                No hattrick from Salah. You heard it here last.

                Also, Pope won’t save 10 Penalty kicks if it happens. You heard it here first.

                  Will appreciate some thought or help guys

                  my team
                  Martinez/button
                  Robbo/Dias/Creswell/Coufal/Bernardo(3.9)
                  Salah/Kdb/Bruno/Grealish/saka
                  Bamford/Watkins/Benteke

                  my concerns:
                  1. Overall goal is to have MCI and TOT coverage as they still have some postponed games. LEE can be good as well.
                  2. Want to do Robbo to Cancelo/Stones, but that will make me have 2 double up on defense, so a little bit worried there. can target TOT defender to avoid that but MCI fixtures are far better so maybe I will swap Coufal for someone else as I like Creswell. but WHU gw23-24 fixture looks juicy tho.
                  3. a little worried about triple AVL. Watkins is the concern. except for the triple "assists" on that one game, he didn't deliver. on his price range, the alternative is only Antonio, Wilson, and Adams for me. but I rather am upgrading Benteke than Watkins and rotate Watkins with Saka. though the upside for having triple AVL is my rival in mini-league don't have any.
                  4. For TOT coverage, primarily one of Kane or Son. I Favor Kane a little bit, but the options I have so far are Son+antonio or Kane+up to 8.2 Mid(either Barnes or Bowen, or even Raphinha). still can't decide which is better.

                  will probably use WC on 24-26 to deal with potential DGW26 depending on how the fixtures will shape.

                  Sorry for the long one. will appreciate any thoughts. cheers

                      Robbo to Cancelo/Stones or KDB (if sesious injured) to Gundogan/Son
                      Benteke to Antonio

                      Chilwell to Dias despite Chelsea's decent run? Chilwell"s attacking returns have dried up and Chelsea look a mess. City are guaranteed cleans for the foreseeable.

                          up until gw24, I think the fixtures are kinda the same. but MCI form especially the defense is better. so it's a yes for me

                          the previous one is too long lol. so I'll try again

                          My team:
                          Martinez/button
                          Robbo/Dias/Creswell/Coufal/Bernardo(3.9)

                          Bamford/Watkins/Benteke

                          my concerns:
                          1. Overall goal is to have MCI and TOT coverage as they still have some postponed games. LEE can be good as well.
                          2. Robbo to Cancelo/Stones but that will make 2 defenses double up. can change Coufal, or rotate him with Saka/Watkins. WHU GW23-24 is juicy.
                          3.A little concern about triple AVL especially Watkins. but if I rather change Benteke first and rotate Watkins with Saka.
                          4. Son+antonio or Kane+up to 8.2 Mid(either Barnes or Bowen, or even Raphinha). still can't decide which is better.

                          will probably use WC on 24-26 to deal with potential DGW26 depending on how the fixtures will shape.

                          Sorry if this is still long. will appreciate any thoughts. cheers

                              maybe add another concern if KDB is ruled out or even doubtful for the next game

                              overall looks a good team
                              i'd lose watkins and benteke
                              antonio is the obvious one - not too much around that price range
                              I'd prefer Kane over Son given lack of trustworthy forwards

                              fwiw i'm holding robbo with double city def + coufal

                                  I hold on to Watkins because this dgw and some other postpone games(2 more I think). plus my rival in mini-league doesn't have a single AVL player, so I think it can give me a good differential over him.
                                  yeah Benteke just a punt back in gw17, it's just a matter of time until he's out from my team.

                              KDB & Soucek > Sterling & Gundagon -4 if KDB confirmed as injured?

                              Also, anyone getting Maddison?

                                hmm would still prefer double defence

                                  Had a shuffle around and I think you’re right. Lowton & KDB > Dias & Maddison

                                  1. HMC

                                    i mean dias & stones combo has let in something like 1 goal in their past 9 PL games. for under 11m that's enormous value
                                    not saying it will continue like that but feel you're not really benefitting from just having one defender like most teams

                                  1 month, 6 days ago

                                  if confirmed as injured i think yes. with kdb out it's Gundogan and sterling will take pen.

                                  i'm not getting maddison because i already have Grealish. but yeah he worth considering

                                  Was it really that stupid not to bring Antonio into the team (it turned out to be wrong in retrospect).

                                  But he was injured for a long time and had only played two games before, in which he played 13 and 31 minutes. Here he has achieved nothing. He also did not score in the cup game against Stockport.

                                  So it was actually understandable that it was too risky for some.

                                  Thank you!

                                    the only risk was the recent injury
                                    for me it was worth taking as i was selling DCL who had no game and was injured. the clincher was the fact they sold Haller with no other recognised striker

                                    It was a double and nice fixtures, these are the types of moves you really have to make.

                                      I mean the reasoning is sensible. so I'm not saying it's stupid to not bring Antonio.
                                      though, it's not that high of a risk, low risk high reward imo. WHU don't have any other striker, 2 great fixtures, on his price range not that many better options.

                                      just like Stones, I am sure almost all that buy him doesn't have enough funds to go Dias or Cancelo.

                                      luck is a great part of this game. don't bring yourself down.

                                      I have 2 draft teams both over 110 points this game week. No Salah, Bruyne, Fernandez, Kane, Son or Vardy as I play making 3 subs a week in average...

                                      My main game team has Salah, Bruyne, Fernandez, Kane and Vardy and sits at 94 points this gameweek thanks to Stones and Gundogan...

                                      Dias Cresswell Stones
                                      Salah Mane Bruno Son Maddison

                                          Mane to Kane? will use 2 transfer ofc.
                                          but I think KDB is better so just wait for more news.

                                            Yeah, but before Pool for a hit? Sounds wrong.

                                        136(-4), with Salah & Martinez left. Up to 33K OR.

                                        Gonna enjoy it while it lasts.

                                        P.S. Wouldn't mind Zambian with prediction coming true. 🙂
