Gundogan’s goals, Foden’s starts and Pep on penalties: FPL notes on Liverpool v City

Liverpool 1-4 Manchester City

  • Goals: Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) | Ilkay Gundogan (£5.9m) x2, Raheem Sterling (£11.6m), Phil Foden (£6.1m)
  • Assists: None | Foden x2, Bernardo Silva (£7.4m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m)
  • Bonus: Gundogan, Foden x3, Sterling x1

Manchester City warmed up for Double Gameweek 24 with a comprehensive thrashing of Liverpool on Sunday.

A second-half capitulation from the Reds and their goalkeeper Alisson (£5.9m) may have added a little gloss to the scoreline but the win was utterly deserved, with City even gifting Liverpool a penalty and missing one of their own to briefly make things interesting.

GUND-WAGON

The man responsible for that penalty miss was Ilkay Gundogan (£5.9m), who skied a 36th-minute spot-kick to temporarily preserve parity.

But the German still departed Anfield with a 13-point haul to his name, scoring twice from close range after half-time to take his tally to nine goals in his last 11 Premier League matches.

Owned by fewer than 20,000 Fantasy Premier League managers before this purple patch began in December, Gundogan is top for transfers in ahead of Double Gameweek 24 and is now the fifth most-owned midfielder in the game.

So long a peripheral squad player, or used in the double pivot when he was granted pitch-time, his redeployment as an attack-minded number eight has revealed a long-dormant eye for goal.

Even when moved back into a more disciplined central midfield role when City switched to a 4-4-2 in the second half of Sunday’s game, he showed a natural, Kevin Nolan-esque knack for popping up in the right place when scoring twice from inside the six-yard box: the first after Phil Foden’s (£6.1m) close-range effort had been saved, the second after the young Englishman had teed him up beautifully.

Pep Guardiola said after full-time:

Now he is playing close to the box. But more importantly, in the second half, we played with a 4-4-2 and he was far away from the goal and he [still] arrived to score a goal. He has an incredible sense to arrive in the right moment.

ED OF THE QUEUE?

Having penalty-taking duties in your locker has certainly been an advantage this season, although the spot-kicks have dried up a little of late, with just six awarded in the top flight over the last four Gameweeks.

Kevin De Bruyne‘s (£11.8m) enforced absence has seen Gundogan assume control from 12 yards, with the Germany international scoring from the spot in Gameweek 19 and given the nod to take Sunday’s penalty.

Gundogan became the third City player to miss from the spot this season when he ballooned yesterday’s effort over the bar and the ongoing spot-kick woes prompted Guardiola to again suggest that Ederson (£6.1m) wouldn’t be far away from being considered, even if the comments were slightly tongue in cheek:

When I commented [on the prospect of Ederson taking penalties] six months ago, it was a joke. Now, it’s a half-joke. We don’t really have a specialist in this area.

I still think that Kevin is a fantastic taker and Gundo is a fantastic taker. What I want is the guy who takes to have personality: ‘I’m going to take the penalty, I’m going to score a goal’.

PHIL YOUR BOOTS

Shortly after Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) had capitalised on a second Alisson error to nod in Bernardo Silva‘s (£7.4m) cross, Foden rounded off the scoring with a superb strike of his own.

Preferred over Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m) as the central striker in Guardiola’s set-up on Merseyside, Foden was moved to the right flank upon the Brazilian’s introduction – and it was from a wide area that he scored City’ fourth.

Keen not to give his whizz-kid a big head in the aftermath of Sunday’s 16-point haul, Guardiola offered a little constructive criticism of Foden and confirmed what we pretty much knew already – that the City boss doesn’t quite trust the 20-year-old in central areas just yet:

When he is playing in the middle, sometimes he has some difficulty to understand what he has to do and the places he has to move. Right now he is moving perfectly in the sides as a winger. Of course, the second and fourth goals were outstanding.

The big question from a Fantasy perspective is: can he be trusted to start both of City’s Double Gameweek 24 fixtures?

It’s certainly a more realistic prospect than it was earlier in the campaign.

Foden has made the starting XI in six of City’s last eight Premier League fixtures and nine of his team’s last 11 in all competitions.

Whereas Gundogan looks pivotal to Guardiola’s set-up at present, however, there’ll always be the risk that the likes of Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m), Ferran Torres (£6.9m) and Jesus can oust Foden from a fluid and interchangeable front three.

A benching in the FA Cup fifth round in midweek would be warmly received by those FPL managers who do take a punt on the youngster.

ALISSON DOODY

City’s clean sheet was spoiled when the hitherto dependable Ruben Dias (£6.1m) brought down Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) for a second-half penalty, duly converted by the Egyptian.

Guardiola’s previous comments about players keeping their places so long as they avoid mistakes may cause a tummy-flip or two among Dias’ owners, although the otherwise excellent centre-half surely has enough credit in the bank to allow for one rick such as this.

Dias’ error was completely overshadowed by Alisson’s remarkably calamitous display, with the last three City goals – including Foden’s emphatic strike – owing a debt to the Brazilian.

Klopp said of his goalkeeper after full-time:

The only thing you can do is learn off it. That is what he will do and it will never happen to him again, I am pretty sure. But tonight it was decisive, I would say.

RED ZONE

Alisson’s horror show made the headlines but he isn’t to blame for all of Liverpool’s current woes.

Two wins in nine league games, three home defeats on the bounce and goalless in five of their last eight Premier League outings: the malaise has truly set in on Merseyside.

A dozen different centre-back pairings in 2020/21 is a key reason why the Reds’ clean sheet tally stands at a very average six (only half a dozen sides have fewer).

And the knock-on effect of using Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) and Fabinho (£5.4m) at centre-half has left the centre of midfield looking limp.

Ederson was barely troubled aside from Salah’s spot-kick, with the return from injury of Sadio Mane (£11.9m) having little effect.

With seven blanks in nine for Salah and Andrew Robertson (£7.3m) on his longest-ever run without an attacking return as a Liverpool player, Fantasy managers can be forgiven for looking elsewhere.

One glimmer of hope is the capture of centre-half duo Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) and Ben Davies (£5.0m). That could serve to redress some balance to the side, allowing Henderson and/or Fabinho to return to their more natural positions, but it’s asking a lot of two Premier League rookies to have the kind of galvanizing effect that Virgil van Dijk (£6.3m) did upon his arrival.


Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Henderson, Robertson (Tsimikas 85), Wijnaldum, Jones (Milner 68), Thiago (Shaqiri 68), Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Manchester City XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Rodrigo, Gundogan, Silva, Mahrez (Jesus 72), Foden, Sterling.

    Knowing Leeds they’ll lose tonight and go and win at Arsenal. Suits Leeds when the game is end to end and that won’t be happening tonight

    Mitchell playing in midfield 🙂

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Nope. He's most likely playing LB with PvA as the LW.

    1FT & incredibly 6.6m ITB.

    Should I just roll the FT? Other option is Robbo >> Tarko perhaps but gives me a bench headache.

    Pope
    Coufal, Dias, Cancelo
    Son, Bruno, Soucek, Gündo
    Bamford, Antonio, DCL
    (McCarthy, Raphina, Dallas, Robbo)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 4 days ago

      Or Soucek/Raphina/Son >> Salah

    2. BeWater
        4 months, 4 days ago

        You have pretty much the same starting 11 as me. I wouldn't bother with Tarkowski myself Pope is enough. I have Lowton but he's been sat in my squad a while. I wouldn't have brought him in for this week.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          How about an upgrade to get in Salah perhaps?

          1. BeWater
              4 months, 4 days ago

              Soucek to Salah. I have Salah already. Planning to get rid of Soucek for Raphinha.

      • The Senate

        should be an instant booking for making a 'card' gesture to the referee. Pathetic behaviour...

          What if the opponent player has just chopped down and injured your mate in a dreadful tackle?

          1. The Senate
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 4 days ago

            football's culture of trying to influence officials just really grinds my gears. I don't watch much rugby, but when I do, it's a breath of fresh air seeing players actually respect the officials. I also don't see how it's ever going to change.

            1. COVID-CASUAL
                4 months, 4 days ago

                Could change in weeks. Video review starts giving out bans to players for being disrespectful to referees. Players would change their behaviour very quickly. Same as diving could be eliminated in weeks if anyone really wanted to.

                Do you still have FH? If so, I'd go that route.

                If no FH, most of the DGW26 will blank 29, so it would be tricky to navigate it (not to mention all the benching headaches like people are experiencing now from the 19 fallout).

                        Fair point but I was looking for “educated guesses”
                        Would you get him in?

                          anyone else remember all the Klich Klich Boom love here early in the season? What happened?

                            There was a lot of Alli love too! And I found that strange.

                              haha - in retrospect indeed. Klich was cheap and on pens and there were a LOT of pens

                                Alli was actually looking sharp in pre season. Then he has a disaster of a season.

                                  Have seen so many instances of pre season form amounting to nothing. People were picking him over Son!

                                      I almost swapped Son + Justin to Alli + Egan minutes before GW1 deadline, that was a close one

                                            There's a 41 point difference between the pairs over the first two gameweeks alone. Crikey!

                                Why is everyone planning on WC in GW25? I do not see any advantage with the DGW teams in that GW.

                                  What if you want to set it up for 15 DGWers and BB?

                                    Then you'd have no Leeds players (or just one in Bamford who you plan to switch in 26) and are also subsequently screwed for GW29 as well.

                                      GW29 FH. I have always planned to have just Bam as my Leeds cover for 25. Will transfer him out for a DGWer in 26.

                                  I think the hope is that we'll know who doubles in 26 by then, so they can use another chip in 26.

                                    I thought almost everyone will have a double, no?

                                      A lot of teams, but not all. My guess is about 12 teams will, with 4 fixtures in 29.

                                    Thanks... I was planning on WC this week to get in Gundo.. Having 3 City already meant that I had to lose more than one player for a hit to get in Gundo. It would have resulted in a -8. So maybe will put off Gundo until next week.

                                    Isn't it to WC in GW25 so you can bench boost in the big DGW 26 with lots of players playing 2 games.

                                    To setup BB26.

                                    But I don't think it's a good idea for the vast majority of teams because to setup a good BB in 26, it means not having Leeds players who so happen to double in 25. The more Leeds you get in 25, the worse your 26 BB becomes.

                                      Good comment Camzy.

                                      Also, the likes of Leeds are perfect to have in your team in preparation for GW29.

                                    So you can bring in duds for BGW29 and then get shot of them

                                      Depends on what chips you still have in hand. I have FH which will help me navigate 29 easily.

                                    Looking at it objectively there is no reason to own a Leeds defender. But I just love watching Dallas. I think if every game wasn't on live I probably wouldn't have him.

                                      this is probably pretty true

                                      Really Dallas? Out of all people? I prefer watching the likes of Raphinha who are gifted on the ball

                                          I mean as an owner. I had Raphinha for a few games and he is the best Leeds player to watch.

                                              Just wondering, if Watkins and DCL went up in price tonight, and I have both, do I get 0.1m back? or does the player have to go up twice in price.

                                              1. MGD

                                                Twice on the way up, once on the way down

                                                  For every 0.2 you make 0.1 on the sell value.

                                                Bamford | DCL | Antionio

                                                2FT, £2.4m ITB

                                                Just can't see any worthwhile moves here for GW24, other than get another £0.1m for Mee (already up £0.1m) before Lowton goes up (unlikely) and then do that change to bank £0.1m going forward... Have rarely just let a FT roll unused before... (!)

                                                Lookman for Jones maybe, and bench Bamford (ARS A)?

                                                Planning on WC GW25 / BB GW26...

                                                I have 7.7 m in the bank and one free transfer, I’m thinking I could bench boost this as well with this team?

                                                    What about Salah > Sterling for dgw? Have Cancelo and Gundo.

                                                      There are a set of Rules I could give to a complete novice and I’d reckon they’d finish top 200k in their first season

                                                      Rules Number 1 (and by far the most important of all the rules) is: Always own and never sell Salah

                                                        What about Aguero?

                                                        Things change.

                                                        Since the Palace returns, 37 points in the last 9 games for Salah.

                                                        22 points came in 2 of those, so the other 15 points in 7.

                                                        Add in captains for the favourable fixtures... then not backing Salah recently and being more adventurous in midfield would have paid off.

                                                      Looking at Salah’s next 7 - it’s definitely a runner

                                                      Get him back for GW31

                                                    I would love some feedback on this.
                                                    So I just noticed getting some dgwers. In could really backfire as I will bench Coufal and AWB but for -8
                                                    I could bench boost this week and still have ALL my chips left. I think it would be good but of course 26 could be better after a WC in 25

                                                    BB for this week for a -8 would be

                                                        Definitely worth a boost if you made transfers for a -8 hit already. If not done already, just consider avoiding hit and playing what you have.

                                                          Have not made any moves yet. It’s probably too risky it’s just the fear of what I could leave on the bench that’s making me even think about it. Pretty annoying using the 2 FT before the WC just leave me in danger on bench points lost but need to go to -8 to get to BB and -4 doesn’t make either situation better 🙂

                                                          I was initially thinking of punting on Jesus for next week but said I'd stick with Lacazette after he got benched. But if Aguero has a chance of being fit...

                                                          So risky though, been so many times it's looked this way recently

                                                        Do son to rash for 1 week punt

                                                        Or coufal to lowton to double up on burnley

                                                        Or do both for -4

                                                        Or do cancelo to lowton and salah to sterling for -4
