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

    I have fallen behind by 130-160 points in the ML. With half a season left is it time to go with differential captains considering its too high a hill to climb anyway?

    1. DK_13
      • 5 Years

      What's the chip status?

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        All Chips Intact for me.

      2. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Doubt even with chips 150+ points are attainable.

    2. Totalfootball
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Just go with who you feel will score most pts

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

      Differentials in your team - yes.
      Differential captains - no.

      It’s doable if you play a blinder with your planning around doubles and blanks.

    4. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Just try to get as close as you can till the DGWs and then try differentials there. Less chance of it back firing and more potential upside as there would be two fixtures.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Fair Enough. Cheers mate.

    5. noquarternt

      Its not looking good, but it can be done if everything goes right for you

    6. Mac90
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      100pts is doable without Chips.
      Someone here posted they caught up 100pts in the 6 last GWs

      A good Wildcard + BenchBoost should be able to secure 50pts+

      Same position here. Lets hope for the best

    7. gonzalocampos

      No chance, train for next season.

    8. Mane Mane Mane

      It is very much possible. Still so many games left and with all your chips intact it’s definitely possible. Two gameweeks ago I was 74 points behind first, beating in mind he has Son and Kane to play and I have Salah I am now 19 ahead after two very strong weeks and not so much from him. Just keep plugging away at it.

      I prefer Digne. He has 6 assists in 10 starts and I'm predicting a double digit score against Newcastle this weekend.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years

      Like it

    2. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldnt swap Foden to Gundo unless its to fund the 2nd move. Also only do the 2nd move if you already have 2 City defenders

      1. Gun gun
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        yes is to fund the 2nd move because my other defenders are kwp/saiss/dallas... kwp injured, saiss bench ytd,dalls vs lei.

        and also i dont have 2 city defenders. and i no need it. since i will have sterling as a superb differential

    3. Cojones of Destiny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      yep

  9. WE GO FOR IT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Pick one:
    A. Soucek to Barnes
    B. Ferguson to Mitchell
    C. Alioksi to Targett/Dier/Digne

    1. Steiger
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      C > Digne

      1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1

        This

    2. Weeb Kakashi

      Assuming you'd Wildcard soon around 25/26. Id go A .
      Barnes was so threatening against Everton. Looks primed to get returns against Leeds and Fulham.

    3. Fiqz Fariss
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A

    4. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 7 days ago

      Cheers all! 🙂
      Looks like it's 2-2 between A and C.
      Don't want to sell Soucek as he's been great for me and I have had him since he was 4.9. But Barnes maybe a higher ceiling differential.
      Digne looks like a good pick and with 2 City defenders and Coufal, I might be able to just forget the defensive side for a few weeks with that transfer.

  10. debrXne
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Hi, I'm playing FPL for the first time and I have a couple of questions.
      1) Is it advisable to have 2 starting GK in the squad ?
      2) How many hits (-4) can I take in one season ?

      1. noquarternt
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        1) its up to you
        2) as many as you like

        1. debrXne
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Thanks mate

        2. Fortune
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          In normal circumstance, 1 GK should be enough
          this season is different tho with all the covid postponements

          as many as you like, but avoid taking them

          1. debrXne
              3 months, 8 days ago

              But having 2 GK gives me the flexibility of rotating them based on favorable fixtures right ?

              I have been taking hits every alternate GW, I panic and take a hit in the last minute to bring someone in. Is 15 hits a season considered high or low ?

              1. Ruth_NZ
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                It's on the high side usually but this is an unusual season because there are many more postponements and late re-arrangements and also a higher incidence of injury. That all makes planning ahead harder.

                Personally I am content to be looser on hits this season because I consider that keeping my team well set up is more important than avoiding the spend of 4 points here and there. In a 'normal' season you would try to plan ahead maybe 6 weeks or so in order to avoid the points spend but when circumstances change in an unforeseeable way it's often better to take the pain in terms of hits rather than having a team that's out of shape.

                1. debrXne
                    3 months, 8 days ago

                    tnx mate

            • Ruth_NZ
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              So, about the starting GKs...

              In a normal season it's usually not necessary to have two unless you are navigating a period when teams have blank weeks and double weeks. Also you want two when using the BB. However, this season, with games being lost unexpectedly, there is more to be said for having two starters.

              Probably the best way to think about it is to have a limit for total spend on the 2 GKs. 9.5m is a good number to use as a maximum. That allows you to have a 5.5m GK (Pope for example) with his back-up (P-Farrell). Or you can have 2 starters, maybe Martinez & Sanchez or Areola & Johnstone.

              Spending more than 5.5m on your main GK is seldom efficient because BPs are very important for GKs and the keepers of top clubs get relatively few of them for various reasons. For example, a GK like Areola will get less CSs than someone like Allison but Areola's CSs will have an average value of 9-10 points against 6, maybe 7 for Allison.

              Last thing, if you have 2 starters be careful about rotation. You want a 'main' one that you almost always play, even in the harder games (unless you think they have zero chance of a CS) because a CS in a game like that, even if less likely, can and often will result in a GK haul (for example Pope's 11-pointer at Anfield last weekend). GK is a very specific position in FPL; they don't score points quite the same way as outfielders and rotating them is much less effective than rotating defenders, for example.

              • 7 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              1) i used to have only 1 gk and the reserve gk as my 2nd gk coming from the same team

              2) treat every transfer regardless free or hit as individual. Always ask urself whether u need to make this/that transfer. Think longer term instead of knee jerking. I always try to save transfer if possible then make 2-3 transfers at a go. No such thing as how many hits as every team is different and transfers might pay off within a few weeks instead of only that week. So make each decision as a separate decision. I will always field 11 if possible even with his unless it is a blank week or many players out with short term issues

              Why would you remove Antonio? He’s a great pick. Very unlucky not to keep up his scoring run last game.

              Digne looks tempting and is exciting to watch, but it’s frustrating owning a 6.0 player who will usually concede even in games where Everton win.

          5. Weeb Kakashi

              Probably. Don't buy or sell yet.

              Why not play Antonio?

                  Stones or Justin

            Did Digne look fit and ready yesterday?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              His stats look good...

            2. The 12th Man
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              He looked good last night.
              Tight game. Everton had to defend a lot so opportunities were few.
              He played left midfield and had a couple of great crosses and took some corners.
              I’m tempted to get him myself instead of DCL.

                Thanks - very tempted myself!

              His delivery was excellent, although opportunities were limited.

              He’ll definitely add to his assist tally soon. As I’ve just said above, it’s frustrating owning a 6.0 player from a team who keep so few CS.

                Thanks! I have to sell Tierney - Hope Digne and his attacking threat will come good.

            Which one?

            1) Bamford > DCL
            2) Pulisic > Sterling

            my team: 1 FT, 3.5ITB
            Johnstone, Meslier
            Chilwell, Stones, Justin, Alioski, Pieters
            Bruno, Salah, Son, Pulisic, Gundogan
            Antonio, Watkins, Bamford

            1. Cojones of Destiny
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              1

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              2. DCL will probably score more than Bamford, but Pulisic doesn’t seem nailed so Sterling has a greater chance of out scoring him.

            Son&Salah left to play. I think them both hauling might be safe. They're either doubled up on most Top10K teams or those teams have one, but captained.
            I now own DCL, first time ever. Exciting times!

            1. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years

              Both of them hauling might be safe? Huh?

                3 months, 8 days ago

                Well I've laid out the ownership possibilities: either both are owned and I gain overall rank/break even, or only one is owned, and when doubled for Captain still only matches the ownership of both. It's not Ben Crellin levels of calculation, but it's reasonably sure.

            Kane Antonio

            Nyland Bamford Holding Alioski

            I am all out of ideas..
            Sticking with Bruno/Salah/KDB Vs Saka/Gundogan/Sterling/Lacacette/Grelish has hurt in recent weeks.
            1FT 1.2bank

            What's the plan in terms of chips, if you have got all of them left to play?

            Am thinking

            - Prepare for BB in GW26 with FHs and hits
            - Then WC afterwards based on fixture swings
            - FH in a BGW/DGW
            - TC in one of the City's many DGWs

            1. Phil's Stamps
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Same but save WC as long as possible for other potential DGWs (32 & 37 have been mentioned).

              1. PogBruno
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Thnx mate

            2. UNDERWORLD7
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              I’d of thought it would be better to WC to prep the team for the DGW in order to prepare for BB? Not the other way round?

              1. PogBruno
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                3 months, 8 days ago

                That would leave funds on the bench with many GWs left

                1. UNDERWORLD7
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  Ahh I guess so

            3. Mane Mane Mane
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Who’s playing in gameweek 26, or at least what clubs should you be aiming to put in for that week?

              If i had all my chips i would WC 25, BB 26, FH 29 and TC in some other double gameweek

            Rodrigo to Kane tomorrow with FT and this would be G2G?

            Mendy(Johnstone)
            Robbo Cancelo Stones (Holding)(Coufal)
            Salah Fernandes Grealish Gundogan (Soucek)
            Kane Antonio Bamford

            Anything worth a hit?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

            Best transfer option?
            a) KDB to Gundo
            b) KDB to Sterling
            c) KDB to Gundo
            Watkins/Bamford to Kane ( already have Son).
            .
            Thoughts appreciated
