Gündogan the Man City architect as Cancelo plays advanced role again

Burnley 0-2 Man City

  • Goals: Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m), Raheem Sterling (£11.6m)
  • Assists: Bernardo Silva (£7.4m), Ilkay Gündogan (£5.8m)
  • Bonus points: Jesus x3, Gündogan x2, Aymeric Laporte x1 (£6.0m)

GIFT OF THE GAB

Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m) is making a strong case for Pep Guardiola to regularly use a recognised centre-forward again.

Following a period on the sidelines with coronavirus (COVID-19), the Brazilian made just one Premier League start between Gameweeks 14 and 20, in which Manchester City predominantly played around a false-nine option.

However, Jesus has now played 90 minutes in each of the last two Gameweeks and has goals in each of them.

Having grabbed his chance with both hands, he will fancy his chances of earning more regular game-time once again. After all, Guardiola recently reiterated that it would take a sustained period of good form and goal-scoring to get Jesus back in the Manchester City team again.

“There are no doubts about Gabriel. We have been together for a long time. Last game he gave us three points and today he gave us the start. We are delighted with Gabriel all the time. He knows that but his contribution in many ways is fantastic.” – Pep Guardiola

SLOW START

For all the interest in Manchester City’s attacking assets, it took them a little while to work their way up to full steam against Burnley.

Over the first 38 minutes of the game, they had registered just two shots on target and their third-minute opening goal was arguably down to a rare error by Nick Pope (£5.4m).

“We were lucky to score early and after, [in] the first half, we struggled a bit to break the lines. The second half was much better. I want them to do the simple things well. We are trying to do it but today we lost more simple balls than usual. In general, I am satisfied because we had chances to score more goals today. We can do better.” – Pep Guardiola

It was Ilkay Gündogan (£5.8m) who got Manchester City into top gear as Guardiola ushered him to push into the more advanced roles that helped him to four double-figure hauls since Gameweek 13. On Wednesday night, only two colleagues registered more touches in the final third than the German international.

However, as we recently highlighted after the win over Sheffield United, Jesus’ presence in the team does stop Gündogan from shooting as often.

Indeed, against Burnley, he mustered just one effort on goal, his first attempt since the second half against West Bromwich Albion.

Still, with his runs into dangerous areas at Turf Moor, the former Borussia Dortmund man was, at the very least, able to provide an excellent level of creativity.

His passes in the middle of the field, and in the penalty box, were reminiscent of what we have seen Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) produce, helping him to an assist for a Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) goal in the first half.

And in the second half, Gündogan won the ball in the middle of the park and played a defence-splitting De Bruyne-esque pass to put Sterling through on goal only for Pope to produce an incredible save to deny the goal.

Manchester City’s fixtures are about to take a tough turn, with Liverpool (away), Spurs (home) and Arsenal (away) their next three opponents, which might lead to some concerns about Gündogan’s long-term appeal.

It must be said that, if Jesus does re-establish himself in the first-team again, which he is threatening to do, we might see less of the budget midfielder unleashing a healthy glut of shots on goal every game. But if he can maintain the creativity on show against Burnley, he can certainly still offer some value at £5.8m, especially as Manchester City’s penalty-taker in De Bruyne’s absence.

LAPORTE IS LEFT BUT NEVER ON THE TABLE

After keeping their 13th clean sheet of the campaign in the 2-0 win at Burnley, Manchester City’s impressive form at the back requires little analysis.

However, Fantasy managers do face some tough decisions surrounding their Citizens defenders with Liverpool and Tottenham up next.

The last time Guardiola’s men did not keep a clean sheet in the Premier League was their 3-1 win over Chelsea (before a run of six on the bounce).

Meanwhile, Spurs (two), Liverpool (one) are two of only three other sides to score against Manchester City since Gameweek 8.

Considering how he has lined up in each of his last two Premier League starts, owners of João Cancelo (£6.0m) might feel more comfortable starting him in Gameweek 23 compared to those holding John Stones (£5.2m) and Rúben Dias (£6.0m).

Officially, Manchester City used a four-man defence on Wednesday night but when they were in possession, Stones, Dias and Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) spread themselves into a back-three and allowed Cancelo to step into midfield as an auxiliary central midfielder, similar to how he operated in the 5-0 win at West Bromwich Albion.

That led to Cancelo pushing forward and going close to a goal against Burnley, only for Pope to make a save. Crucially, he was replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) in the 63rd minute, helping him bank a clean sheet and all but guarantee a start on Sunday afternoon.

Cancelo’s touch heatmap in Gameweek 22

If Cancelo were to perform a similar role against Liverpool, he could offer attacking threat despite the somewhat diminished clean sheet potential.

Meanwhile, Laporte continues to pose something of a threat to Stones and, to a lesser extent, Dias. This was his second successive Premier League start although this time he played alongside them. Officially, he was handed a left-back role but, as we have already alluded to, Laporte spent a large amount of time acting as a third centre-back at Turf Moor.

Unfortunately, Guardiola is offering up no clues as to how Laporte fits into the Manchester City picture this season either. Rather than clarify his role against Burnley or elaborate on his long-term prospects for starting, he explained Laporte’s Gameweek 22 start was simply as a result of the busy schedule.

“What we have done so far is because everyone has made an incredible contribution and he is no exception. When we see the February schedule we want to run away but the amount of games we have everyone will be so important.” – Pep Guardiola

Burnley XI: Pope; Pieters, Mee, Tarkowski, Lowton; McNeil, Westwood (Benson 81′), Cork (D Stephens 71′), Gudmundsson; Vydra, Rodriguez (Mumbongo 77′).

Manchester City XI: Ederson; Laporte, Dias, Stones, Cancelo (Zinchenko 64′); Gündogan, Rodri, B Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez.

    Have 2 FT, what transfer(s) would you suggest here? Does my bench selection look alright on papers? 🙂

    De Gea | {Martinez}
    Wan-Bissaka | Cancelo | Stones | Coufal | {Struijk}
    Bruno | Salah | Sterling | {Soucek} | {ESR}
    Bamford | Antonio | DCL

    Current bench: Martinez, Soucek, Struijk, ESR

    1. sunzip14
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 3 days ago

      Would start Soucek ahead of Stones/DCL. Upgrade your bench if you plan to BB26. Looks like even if you have a WC, you could save and not use it on 25. I am contemplating about this strategy. Would appreciate your feedback on my post below, about this.

      1. THE KING CANTONA
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Forgot to mention.. But, I already used BB on GW19, which is causing benching headaches now.

        Thanks! Started Stones ahead of Soucek due to pool's poor scoring form, might definitely bench Stones if Mane is fit.

      Not sure what to do here with 2FT, 3.9itb. I have all the chips, but is it worth it to try and save WC25 for BB26 with this team by using the FTs to upgrade my bench players? Then WC at an appropriate GW to concentrate the fund on the Starting XI and FH29. * are players I would like to transfer out before BB26 (Antonio and Coufal will stay put for the next two fixtures).

      DDG, Forster*
      Stones, Justin, Cancelo, Coufal*, Mitchell*
      Son, Salah, Bruno, Gundo, Grealish
      DCL, Antonio*, Brewster*

      1. Amey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        Problem with that approach is we'll know about the fixtures in 26 around 24 deadline. Not enough time to react then IMO.
        Having said that, you have a good team for this GW so IDK 😀

        I want Son Antonio for this GW at least so I'll mostly use my 2 FT to get them in

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Taking some reference from Ben Crellin's spreadsheet, it is most likely that most of my players will have a DGW26. Coufal and Antonio have plum fixtures for the next two. So, I think upgrading Mitchell or Brewster by preempting the dgw26 fixture won't be too bad.

          1. Amey
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 3 days ago

            GL !

        i was originally going to wc25 even though i used bb19 but there might not be that much surgery needed - hard to know at this stage
        i would think some of the 3.9itb would be better spent upgrading brewster to bamford/wilson/watkins

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          I am thinking along that line of getting Bamford/Watkins and hope that the player I get in has a dgw26. WC25 doesn't look so attractive when I probably already have most players to start for that gw. Saving it for later also means I do not have too much fund stuck on the bench and FH can address BGW29. Anyway, I guess without any obvious move for next GW, saving a FT and upgrading Brewster/Mitchell with another makes sense.

      3. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 3 days ago

        If you have no pressing moves, I would look at moving out your dodgy bench players to better starters in preparation for a BB some time, especially as your team is quite well set anyway, always keeping an eye on any that may be rising in price.

        You will have bit of a benching headache at times but with players dropping like flies it probably isn't a bad thing.

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Thank you. Will upgrade one of Mitchell/Brewster and save another FT.

      4. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Upgrade Brewster to Bamford/Watkins imo.

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 3 days ago

          Thank you Karan, will probably do this and save another FT and plan further when fixtures are announced.

        Son worth a hit?

        Chelsea have amazing fixtures but no attacker worth investing in. Tonight's game might give some ideas!

          Think their best run is really from GW30 on - could fall nicely for late WCs

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Rudiger worth a punt imo

      • Gemma817

          Antonio a good captaincy pick? No subject to rotation, right?

              WC30/31 is the optimal strategy for those without a FH left.

                    Prep for DGW26 starting now and BB26. Then use FTs to dead end your team into a Blank GW29 team, then WC30

                    Happy with my squad's performance but not with my two line decisions this week:

                    Benched AWB instead of Creswell
                    Salah(c) & Bruno(vc)
                    Only 64pts vs 95 (with Son to play)

                    So no harm in seeking advice who to captain and who to bench for GW23?

                    Martinez [ARS]
                    Stones [liv] - Dias [liv] - Cresswell [ful] - AWB [EVE]
                    Salah [MCI] - Bruno [EVE] - Son [WBA] - Gündogan [liv]
                    Bamford [CRY] - Antonio [ful] - Wilson[ SOU]
                    BENCH: Areola - _______ - ESR - Mitchell
                    1FT £5.5M

                    Suggestions for a 5th midfielder under £10M?

                      Bench Dias.

                      Captain Son or Bruno.

                        That's exactly what I've started with: Son(c), Bruno(vc), Dias on bench 🙂

                      Both your decisions were correct. Such is life. I guess benching one of the City defense makes sense but unless Mane is passed fit I’m not sure Liverpool will score ... Everton will.

                    With Kane likely to be back in two GWs, it's no brainer to get Son back in ?

                    Out of curiosity; are people more bothered about mini-leagues or the actual full leaderboard? I’m in seven MLs with friends, colleagues and industry people and those are the only thing I actually want to win.

                    You?

                      Isn't it directly proportional? Better the OR better chance of winning ML? I usually concentrate on OR for the most part. Only in last few GWs, I look at my ML rivals and choose differentials if need be.

                    How do you solve a ‘problem’ like Soucek?

                    Is he now definitely a 7th attacker and you play him every week going forwards or will he always be an 8th attacker to you and always sit first on your bench.

                      3 months, 3 days ago

                      Do you think he keeps scoring?

                        No but that doesn’t seem to stop him!

                      This week was the first week since gw1 when i benched him.

                      Never again. This week he will be may starter agains fulham over dcl ... i cant believe that guy for 5.0 and defensive mid have so many chances to score a goal..

                      3 months, 3 days ago

                      Started the season with him as 6th attacker. Could have been 5th for all the good Havertz did.

                      But think he’s a genuine 7th attacker if needed - much the same category as Bamford/Watkins

                      3 months, 3 days ago

                      H'es been my 7th attacker ever since I got him in GW12 WC. Best decision I made all season. They way he plays, he will score every 3/4 games. He's given me 66 points in 10 GWs since. That's 6.6 points per GW.

                      I think you either avoid him completely and pray he stops scoring or you play him every week in a 3-5-2...

                    Liverpool have now failed to score in 4 out of the last 6 PL games...

                    Surely people are starting double City defence v Pool this week?

                      I'm torn. It's between Dias and Alisoki at home to a Zaha-less (?) Palace. Leaning towards Alioski as I think Liverpool will win. The 2 games. Just feel they will turn up vs City.
                      If I get Justin/Shaw in, I'd start them for sure.

                          A little too maverick rn for me. If it was a GW beyond 30, I might.

                      Thought son first but the chelsea game will be tough and then not much rest before west brom in a early kick off puts me off. Bruno atm

                      Curious for the Bruno love ; he was totally missing until Mike Dean stepped in again ; even against 10 men he was near invisible and has been for a while.

                        Was a case of teammates missing his assists and scoring from other opportunities, he had plenty of good moments in the game from FPL perspective.

                    DCL to Kane might be a popular move in GW25/26 right?
