Gündogan shines in KDB’s absence as Cancelo finally delivers attacking haul

West Bromwich Albion 0-5 Manchester City

  • Goals: Ilkay Gündogan (£5.7m) x2 | Joao Cancelo (£5.9m) | Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m) Raheem Sterling (£11.5m)
  • Assists: Mahrez | Sterling | Cancelo | Bernardo Silva (£7.4m)
  • Bonus: Gündogan x3 | Cancelo x2 | Mahrez x1

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) owners who kept faith with Joao Cancelo (£5.9m) were finally rewarded with attacking points as the Portuguese full-back scored and assisted, bringing in a monster 17-point haul.

Managers looking for a replacement for Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) need not look far, with Ilkay Gündogan (£5.7m) bagging a brace and maximum bonus points.

As good as Manchester City were going forward, all FPL players will now be looking at targeting teams playing West Brom, who have shipped 17 goals in five games.

WOW CANCELO

Cancelo has delivered consistently impressive attacking numbers all season, without the points to show for it.

Before the West Brom game, Cancelo only had one assist against West Ham to his name.

But it finally clicked on Tuesday, with Cancelo scoring and laying on the first goal with a terrific through ball for Gündogan.

As he has done throughout most of the season, Cancelo started at right-back but spent most of the game as an auxilliary centre midfielder.

This leaves Cancelo in the prime position to lay on assists or have shots on goal, with him creating the most chances of any player in the match.

Gündogan credited the defender for setting up his first goal and his passing range.

“When we have the ball, he plays a bit of a different role, he plays in the middle a bit more, gets more touches and he has the quality to put in these balls and I knew it.

“He is doing well. Everyone is doing well, him especially in the last few weeks, and we need this rhythm to maintain our level.”

Ilkay Gündogan

Cancelo’s stats throughout the season suggest his 17-point haul was far from a fluke, and there could be many more to come this season.

With good fixtures and in a City defence which has conceded one goal in five games, Cancelo looks more than capable of building on this score.

The only negative for Cancelo is the potential of rotation, with Kyle Walker (£6.1m) returning to the bench for City.

WHO NEEDS KDB?

With De Bruyne missing the next few games through injury, more than 500,000 managers gambled on Gündogan to replace him, despite the huge difference in price.

And their gamble paid off in style, with Gündogan scoring twice and picking up maximum bonus points.

A feature of City’s game in the last few weeks has been Gündogan pushing further forward from his deep-lying role in midfield to join attacks.

For City’s first goal, the German midfielder ran in behind West Brom’s defence to latch onto Cancelo’s through ball, before stroking the ball past Sam Johnstone (£4.5m).

And for his second, Gündogan won the ball high up the pitch before dribbling into the box to score.

As his heatmap shows in City’s last six games, the midfielder is now picking up the ball far more in the opposition half, rarely coming deep to receive passes.

His double against the Baggies makes it six goals in seven games for Gündogan, who has now established himself as one of the biggest goal threats in midfield in the league.

Manager Pep Guardiola praised his first signing for Man City and his “sense of goal”.

“He’s a guy that has an incredible sense of goal. When he plays near to the box he has the timing to arrive at the right time, at the right second. When he arrives he has the calmness to slow down and make the right decision. I am happy for him. He deserves the best.”

Pep Guardiola

With Sheffield United (home) and Burnley (away) up next for the Cityzens, Gündogan looks essential if he can avoid Pep’s rotation.

His withdrawal from the game at 52 minutes hints that Pep wants him fresh for upcoming fixtures.

A STERLING PERFORMANCE

Another player looking to step out from the shadow of KDB will be Raheem Sterling (£11.5m).

Despite being City’s top scoring midfielder and scoring more than 200 points in his last three seasons, Sterling has gone under the radar being owned by less than 10% of players.

Previously immune to Pep’s rotation, Sterling has found himself benched three times so far.

But the England international re-established himself as an FPL asset with a strong all-round performance against West Brom.

Playing in a fluid front three without a recognised striker, Sterling was a constant goal and assist threat throughout the game.

With Gabriel Jesus (£9.1m) failing to convince and Sergio Aguero (£10.2m) struggling with fitness, now seems the perfect time for Sterling to step up.

LOOMING THREAT

John Stones (£5.1m) owners would have been worried to see Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) warming up around the 51st minute.

Fortunately for Stones and Ruben Dias (£5.9m), Gündogan was withdrawn and Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) moved into a midfield role, with Laporte filling in at left-back.

After starting the FA Cup match, it appears Laporte is nearing full fitness, something to cause concern for Stones and Dias owners.

Pep has also been talking up Laporte since his return from injury, describing him as their “best left centre-back”.

Following the match, he said:

“From the beginning of the season apart from the game against Leicester we concede so few.

Now our defenders concentrate for 90 minutes. Ruben and John, Aymeric, they are so focused.

The midfielders and the strikers know we are there and covered and in the right moment we will score.

It is impossible to be at the latter stages of any competition without being solid at the back.”

Pep Guardiola

With the form of Stones and Dias, and the City defence in general, few managers would think of switching personnel.

But with three games in nine days, rotation is bound to come in to play putting the place of John Stones, in particular, at risk.

WHIPPING BOYS

After appointing Sam Allardyce as manager, many people expected the veteran manager to tighten up the Baggies’ defence.

Before the introduction of Big Sam, West Brom had conceded the most goals in the league, and had the worst Expected Goals Conceded (xGC) rating.

To make matters worse for the Baggies, they also conceded the most shots on target, shots in the box, and headed attempts.

Looking at the figures under Allardyce, you could even argue that their defence has got worse since his arrival.

In the 13 games before Big Sam’s appointment, West Brom conceded 26 goals and had an xGC of 25.24.

In the seven games with Allardyce at the helm, his team has still conceded the most goals, with 22, and has the worst xGC in the league.

Their overall defending appears to have got even worse, with the Baggies now conceding the most shots inside the box, outside the box, on target, headed attempts and losing the most tackles.

Following the game, Allardyce did not appear for the post-match press conference for an hour, locking his players in the dressing room and telling them some home truths.

“A few home truths needed to be said. I think it had to be done now because there is a short period of time before the next game then a short period of time for the game after that.

“And these two games really do stand high on what we need to do and how we need to try and perform. I needed to get my disappointment and feelings out of the way immediately after the game – that’s why it took so long.

“They (the players) needed to air some of their views – that’s fine because we are all in it together. But I was disappointed with that performance, to say the least. To get it out the way means it’s done and dusted.

“Hopefully, we will learn from it and we won’t see it again between now and the end of the season. I can accept defeat but not like that.”

Sam Allardyce

With no light at the end of the tunnel and defensive performances that are getting worse, targeting teams playing West Brom seems like a sound strategy.

West Bromwich Albion (4-4-1-1): Johnstone; Furlong, Ajayi, O’Shea, Gibbs; Snodgrass (Phillips 59), Livermore, Sawyers, Grant (Robson-Kanu 64; Pereira; Robinson (Bartley 46)

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; Gündogan (Laporte 52), Rodri, Bernardo Silva (Jesus 61); Foden (Torres 52), Mahrez, Sterling

    best option please

    Keep Sterling (and captain) and do Bamford/Dallas to DCL/Mitchell -4 (defender move to fund this)
    or
    Sterling/Bamford to Gund/Kane -4 (would probably captain Kane vs Brighton

    DCL next 2 fixtures look good, whilst Kane has bri CHE

    Would plan to bring Kane in gw23

      C) Other?

      1. gonzalocampos

      Shocked that Utd lost, thought they were going to thrash a Sheff Utd side playing Phil Jagielka and set up nicely for Utd to counter. Love to see it though, this humiliation is well deserved. Chris Wilder on fire 🙂

      1. Tsparkes10

        I wouldn't get Watkins, awful player. look elsewhere.

      4. debrXne
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Watkins is awful, had him for 9 weeks. Get DCL instead.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          I did, he just had one good chance which he headed wide. Leicester dominated.

            I see quite a few are getting him in as they play Newcastle next..not sure I'm sold on them to be honest

            1. FantasyClub
                3 months, 18 days ago

                I brought Digne in, he looked very dangerous

          2. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            interested as well
            Newc and Leeds next up

          3. Third Eye Vision
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            It was a defensive set up by Everton. They let Leicester have the ball for the majority of the game. Allan is still out and Doucoure was badly missed, but that’s only one game. Leicester controlled the midfield. However, a moment of class from Rodriguez meant Everton led on the half hour mark. Everton’s defending was resolute, but Leicester kept looking threatening. They only scored through a bad goalkeeping error from Pickford however.

            As mentioned above, Digne looks the current pick of the bunch. It was his second game playing on the left of midfield (with Godfrey behind). Richarlison and Dominic both wasted good chances and Everton should probably have won the game.

            For Leicester, I thought that Barnes really stood out. He was excellent. So creative and dangerous.

          Anyone else tempted to bring in Callum Hudson-Odoi?

            • 4 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            He doesn't get CS points even if Tuchel played him RWB? Still unsure about his preferred players and formation. Wouldn't go there now.

            • 5 Years

            As useful as striker turned wing back Bobby Reid.

            No - Tuchel is just trying things out. We don’t know who the new Tuchel players will be

            0-0 today

            That’s a failed offensive day

          5. gonzalocampos
            • 6 Years

            If you want to lose points, more than welcome

        3. Goodricke
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 18 days ago

          Werner unused sub! New manager made his debut, a win would have sent a message, 0-0 final score, leaves Werner on the bench. Does this mean he isn't in the manager's plans, or was Abraham rewarded for the FA cup performance?

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

            It means that he's been here one day and is figuring out his best XI - this will take time, Pep 2.0 that he is, and it's more profitable to stay away from Chelsea assets at this moment.

            1. Goodricke
              • 5 Years
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Do you think he will start / play Werner against Burnley?

              I took a punt this round (before Lampard was axed) after seeing the dismal Wolves display against West Brom. Now wondering whether to take a -4 and cut losses.

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

                I have no idea. I doubt anyone does, Tuchel is a new entity and as you said, brought on Abraham before Timo. If you have a decent bench option it may not be worth the hit but I'd be tempted to cut losses and say goodbye.

            It means he wasn’t expecting balls in behind. What lamps should have been doing all along; he’s not a winger

          So JRod and Grealish scored.. Obviously I chose Maddison on WC 🙂 Areola on the bench too of course. Should I play him this week vs WBA?

          Think I'd like DCL back eventually, but should I just roll the FT here? Only ? is Shaw I guess.

              He's 5m, budget is 4.8m.

                3 months, 18 days ago

                Apologies. Didn't know Shaw was so cheap. Not sure how CS friendly United are. Could chance double Villa defence and get Targett but my preferred option, cos you've 4 starting defenders, is Zouma to Douglas and cash in hand to upgrade later.

                  Sorry Im confused.......douglas?

                    Barry Douglas, Leeds defender, 3.8m. He can't play, on loan at Blackburn, but a good potential enabler.

                      Ah ok, cheers. Might as well spend the extra 0.1m and get Mitchel in that case.

              Not sold on him either. Who would you get for 4.8m?

              Thought of him, but not sure if Tuchel has nailed down his starting 11 yet. Imgine doing zouma > rudiger and zouma starts!

          hi all thoughts appreciated Dallas or Walker-Peters out for Stones?

          I rather keep Dallas as he plays oop but is it better to hedge my bets on the basis Sou might have a double gameweek coming up?

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years

            Dallas.

          Stevie G was a better player than fat frank and now he's a better manager too!

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 18 days ago

            What league does Gerrard manage in?

            1. Bushwhacker
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 18 days ago

              Same one Lampard should. Celtic would be a super spot for him to gain experience and confidence; worked for Rogers, Rangers is working for Stevie.

            2. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 18 days ago

              You should update your thinking if you believe the league diminishes the incredible job Gerrard has done at Rangers.

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 18 days ago

                He's done a great job with them in the league and Europa. But, before this season for a long time it was a one team league. If the Celtic board had opened their wallet a bit they might be showing ambitions to get out of CL group stages. Sadly they didn't, Rodgers left and Lennon isn't close to the coach that Rodgers is. Hopefully whoever replaces Lennon can
                make them improve and compete with Rangers and raise the standards of both clubs, huge clubs.

          Thinking of Saka -> Barnes for a -4 (other moves are Vardy-Rash -> Kane-Gundo)

          Saka could potentially play left back. If he does play midfield, I think it’ll be low scoring game. Compared to Barnes vs Leeds, I think Barnes has more upside. Should I hold?

            What about Saka to just gundog?
            Or would it be easier just to deal with Vardy as have to at some point ?

              Unfortunately I don’t have the funds to make that upgrade and would like to sell Vardy.
