Who are the best Man City players to own for FPL Double Gameweek 24?

Manchester City can offer a wealth of viable options at both ends of the pitch for Double Gameweek 24.

The question is, of course, how many should Fantasy Premier League managers invest in and which assets are the best to consider.

We have run the rule over the form of Pep Guardiola’s men, the data behind their upcoming opponents and picked out some key statistics behind certain individuals.

As this article uses data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

THE FORM

Manchester City have been the kings of the form charts over the winter period.

After a stuttered start to the campaign, their last 12 matches have been a display of imperious superiority compared to the rest of the Premier League.

During that period they have won 10 games, drawn two, been the only side in the division to go unbeaten and amassing 32 points, at least seven more than anyone else.

Furthermore, Guardiola’s men have conceded on just three occasions (0.3 per game) and their total of 26 goals is bettered only by Manchester United, who had more than a few mitigating circumstances go their way in the 9-0 win over Southampton.

Considering Manchester City are top of so many key metrics of late, the case for choosing three of their players for Double Gameweek 24 is strong indeed.

The more pressing question is perhaps whether or not Fantasy managers should double-up in defence or attack when it comes to Manchester City.

To answer that, it makes sense to take a closer look at their upcoming opponents…

    More I look at GW26 & 29 the more I think 11 double game weekers and Kane TC rather than the bench boost as I'd hoped. Enables me to keep some Leeds GW29 players ready on the bench.

    Then out go the Grealish & Watkins > Soucek & Antonio for 29 Blank & the rest of the season (Villa bottom of fixtures, Hammers near top)

    But then where to use the Wildcard & Bench boost, GW38 seems appealing just for the lols.

    Off-topic question but what do people make of the "cup-tied" rule and should it be reviewed?

    Using Minamino as the example, Liverpool would probably be granting him permission to play if it weren't for such ruling.
    Even more so, the parent club no longer being in the competition.

    What do people make of this?

      It's a legacy of a bygone era, before transfer windows existed, and yes I agree it could probably be reviewed and removed now.

      Morning all.
      Advice for someone without WC please.

      Robertson out for:
      a) Mee
      b) Shaw
      ?

      Robbo out to free up funds. Shaw seems like a better long term option, makes the most of the FT...what do you guys reckon?

        I'd go Mee, nice double this week and good fixture after that. Double in 26 too. Also more nailed, Shaw clearly first choice but could get a rest for Telles.

      Benching dilemma please help.
      One to the bench:

      A) Kane (vs City defense)
      B) Raphina (Benched him and Dallas last week - ouch)
      C) Antonio ( 75% ready - fatigue. WTF!)

      TAA/Robbo/Dias/Cancelo/Rudiger
      Salah/Son/Fernandes/Burke/Bissouma
      DCL/Bamford/Antonio

      A - Burke to Gundogan
      B - Son to Sterling
      C - DCL to Ings

      Any owners of both Martinez and Areola out there? Who to play?

      Not confident in Fulham's chances of a clean sheet away at Everton or Burnley
