Guardiola hints at Double Gameweek 26 and 27 for City and offers Gundogan update

Double Gameweek 24 came to a conclusion on Wednesday evening as Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to ten points with a win over Everton.

Elsewhere on a generally underwhelming night for those with Fantasy interest, Burnley and Fulham played out a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.

SEEING DOUBLE

How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 24

A throwaway line from Pep Guardiola in his pre-match interview on Wednesday evening set tongues wagging in the Fantasy Premier League world.

The City manager lamented a busy month ahead for his side before the clash with Everton, in doing so mentioning that games against Wolves and Southampton – City’s two outstanding fixtures following cup-related postponements – had been added to the calendar in March.

Those two matches could realistically only be added to Gameweeks 26 and 27 if we’re looking at City’s schedule before the March international break:

ARE YOU ILKAY?

Missing his first Premier League game since Gameweek 12, Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m) sat out City’s win at Goodison Park.

Guardiola had forewarned us that the German would miss out on the trip to Merseyside and he had more to say on the in-form midfielder ahead of kick-off, suggesting that a return to action in Double Gameweek 25 wasn’t yet assured:

Elsewhere on the fitness front, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) marked his return from injury as a late substitute.

We await news on Joao Cancelo‘s (£6.1m) condition, with the Portuguese defender taking a heavy kick to his knee in second-half injury time and limping through to the game’s conclusion.

As for Everton, the Toffees could have Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) back for the Merseyside derby this weekend:

SILVA LINING

Guardiola hints at Double Gameweek 26 and 27 for City and offers Gundogan update 1

De Bruyne’s return gives Guardiola another option in the centre of midfield, where Gundogan and Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) have started every Premier League match that they have been available for from Gameweek 14 onwards.

It was Phil Foden (£6.1m) who ostensibly filled in for Gundogan as the left-sided ‘number eight’ on Merseyside, with the youngster opening the scoring with a deflected 31st-minute effort and generally posing more of a threat than the shot-less Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) further up the flank.

Bernardo meanwhile made it six attacking returns in his last seven starts, first claiming the assist for Riyad Mahrez’s (£8.1m) superb strike and then taking advantage of some suspect goalkeeping from Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) to round off the scoring himself.

Bernardo has started 12 league matches in a row now and his and Gundogan’s run in the team pre-dated De Bruyne’s injury by some time.

It’ll be interesting to see how Guardiola incorporates the Belgian back into his side, then. Given the form of Bernardo and Gundogan in their respective central midfield positions and Gabriel Jesus‘ (£9.2m) lack of it up front, it’ll be the Brazilian who will be watching more nervously over his shoulder – both Bernardo and De Bruyne have operated as the spearhead of the City attack over the last few months.

Rotation will beckon for most City players during the upcoming period of fixture congestion, it has to be said, with Guardiola telling reporters:

If you see the schedule that we have… we have a game every three or four days, everybody is going to play. Against Arsenal, we are going to play new ones.

ALL ABOUT MEE

It’s now just one clean sheet in seven matches for Burnley without their skipper Ben Mee (£5.1m), who missed Wednesday’s draw with Fulham due to the concussion protocol.

The Clarets’ shut-out record stands at seven in 17 when Mee is fit and the good news for Sean Dyche’s side is that the first-choice stopper will be available for selection for the weekend’s clash with West Bromwich Albion, a fixture that offers Burnley a very good opportunity to add to their clean sheet tally.

Not that stand-in centre-back Kevin Long (£4.3m) was culpable for this clean sheet loss, with first-half substitute Robbie Brady (£5.0m) – on as a replacement for the crocked Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.4m) before having to leave the field himself – making a hash of a goalline clearance for Fulham’s opener.

On a disappointing evening for owners of Nick Pope (£5.6m) et al, the four Fantasy assets who emerged from the draw at Turf Moor with any sort of FPL return were all owned by 1.5% of Fantasy managers or fewer.

Ola Aina (£4.5m), the fortuitous scorer of the Cottagers’ goal and assister of one of Josh Maja‘s (£5.5m) strikes in the win over Everton, finished as Gameweek 24’s joint-top scorer on 20 points alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) – two players owned by a combined 10 managers inside the top 10k.

Fulham were worthy of their point and their undefeated run against sides outside of the top four now stretches to ten games.

      I felt the same when I finally got rid of TAA, congrats 🙂

        I hope you realise he has an easy run of games coming up together with a DGW.

          Who did you get instead? Plans for the money you saved?

      • mwa1t
          2 months, 23 days ago

          Martinez - McCarthy
          Dias - White - Shaw - Dallas - Rudiger
          Bruno - Salah - Maddison - Gundo - Raphinha
          Kane - Ings - Bamford

          Who to Captain, who to drop? Leaning towards Bamford or Raphinha (C) with McCarthy - Maddison - White - Rudiger on the bench.

              Looks like a WC team to me

        • EWH2020

          FFS all I want to know is the god damn fixtures for DGW

        • DV8R
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          Grealish or Barnes for DGW26 (if they have one)?

          1. mwa1t
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Maybe Barnes on current form, then get Grealish for 29

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              Barnes considering form and fixtures

            • Scholes Out Forever
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 23 days ago

              Barnes for me. Would rather get Watkins

            Wow Grealish has some awful stats in the last 4

            1. mwa1t
                2 months, 23 days ago

                I'm leaving him out until GW29, better options on current form

              • Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 23 days ago

                I don’t own him but I’d be happier benching him in a benching headache type situation atm!

                • 7 Years

                Watkins is a better bet imo

              Lost on last page

              Do you think Ings is worth bringing in for GW25 with FT even if he potentially makes way again in GW26?

              Looking at Kane + LEI mid in for GW26 possibly

              1FT 3.4itb. Prob TC in 26, WC in 30
              Pope
              Dias, Dallas, Shaw
              Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundogan, Raphinha
              Bamford, DCL

              Cheers

                Not sure it's worth it for a 1 wk punt. Roll it team looks good

                  Thanks mate

                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  If there's no glaring problems you need to fix, Ings is worth it just for the DGW imo. Then again he might have another double in 27. Maybe try and fit Kane and Ings in for 25, 26, 27

                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Kane + Ings requires more surgery which I’m not so keen on. Thanks for the reply

                  • 7 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  id save and maybe do 3 transfers for 26

                  1. Don Kloppeone
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Thanks mate. Seems sensible. I’d like to just ignore Ings ideally. More exciting options about. But if he has multiple DGWs it becomes a different story!

                2 months, 23 days ago

                Would you WC this team (depending on fixture announcements?)? All chips intact.

                Pope
                Robbo - Coufal - Cancel (mitchell, taylor)
                Salah - Sterling - Gundo - Bissouma
                Wilson - Bamford - Cavani

                1. mwa1t
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Depends on your current rank imo. If you're happy, save the WC to clean up after 29, if you need to gain rank WC now

                    Yes I’d say that’s worthy of a WC

                  Is Shaw gonna outscore Dunk by 4pts or more in the next 2 gws?

                  1. Scholes Out Forever

                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    yeah id say so. but not worth if youre just gonna get Dunk back in

                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 23 days ago

                  Are doubles for 26 confirmed for Spurs?

                  1. Scholes Out Forever
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 7 Years
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    basically

                4. mwa1t
                    2 months, 23 days ago

                    Raphinha or Bamford captain? Tempted to take a punt on Raph but every time i've taken a punt this year i seem to have been punished badly...

                    1. waldo666
                      • 10 Years
                      2 months, 23 days ago

                      I'm on Bam atm.

                      1. mwa1t
                          2 months, 23 days ago

                          Bamford scares me slightly, quite inconsistent but Leeds just feed him so many chances.

                          1. waldo666
                            • 10 Years
                            2 months, 23 days ago

                            Close call between him and Raph for mine.

                      2. BeWater
                          2 months, 23 days ago

                          I think just owning Raphinha is enough of a differential. I've got both and going to captain Bamford.

                      3. Scholes Out Forever

                        2 months, 23 days ago

                        Was originally going to try to BB25 and WC26, but looks like Cancelo has a knock or could be rotated this weekend.

                        Is the move of DCL + Coufal --> Ings + Dallas (-4) still viable here? Also cant see a way to get Raphinha, dont fancy a hit to get out any of the midfield

                        Martinez - Pope
                        Alioski - Dias - Cancelo - Coufal - Lowton
                        Gundo - Salah - Bruno - Rashford - Barnes
                        DCL - Antonio - Bamford

                            2 months, 23 days ago

                            Transfers sound good. Could even just do DCL --> Ings if you didn't want to take a hit

                            1. Scholes Out Forever

                              I just want to BB this week as the team looks good. Just need to get rid of Coufal whos playing Spurs.

                              Scared of having no Raphinha tbh

                              1. mwa1t
                                  2 months, 23 days ago

                                  Ah yeah with BB i'd probably do both transfers

                                  1. Scholes Out Forever

                                    cheers. Cant get in Raphinha with that midifield can I

                                    1. mwa1t
                                        2 months, 23 days ago

                                        Tough one. Raph is probably better option than Rashford or Barnes just for DGW25, but after that Rashford and Barnes are better

                                        1. mwa1t
                                            2 months, 23 days ago

                                            Maybe do Barnes/Rashford to Raphinha instead of Coufal --> Dallas? Considering you are WC in 26 anyway

                                            1. Scholes Out Forever
                                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                              • 7 Years
                                              2 months, 23 days ago

                                              hmm fair, but Coufal (tot) seems much lower upside than Barnes or Rash

                                              Raph and Dallas is at least comparable

                                  Moves look good. Will you still WC soon?

                                    yeah thats always been the plan. I feel like my team is not too great for 26 as there are players like Digne, Son, Kane, Watkins etc that I want.

                                    Didnt want to WC into a loaded bench so would like to BB before the WC

                                Do you think KdB starts at the weekend now?

                                And also do you think Kilman or Mitchell play both the doubles?

                                  I don't think Pepe would want to take too many risks, reckon minutes off the bench again.

                                  No.

                                  assess if he plays against Arsenal, then evaluate if he can be an option for 26

                                  Kilman will probably play 1, Mitchell wont play 1

                                      3 looks best for 25, but consider that you probably want Kane in 26

                                      Would you guys BB Pope and triple Leeds v Villa (Dallas, Raphinha and Bamford) in GW26?

                                      BB chip is starting to do my head in. At least this way I can carry triple Leeds through to 29 then WC in 30 or 31.

                                          GW26 not 25

                                              Yep in 26 I would BB.

                                              Team would look like this with no hits:

                                              Martinez Pope
                                              Cancelo Stones Lowton Targett Dallas
                                              Salah Bruno Son Gundo Raphinha
                                              Bamford Vardy Watkins

                                                thats a good team, but i would maybe get Raph out for a hit if you can afford Barnes

                                            I’ve gone Ings this week and will be changing him to Kane next. I don’t see spurs scoring more than 1/2 against hammers

                                          Foden, Richarlison=> Raphinha, Ings -8?

                                          Which and how many City assets would you pick on WC?
                                          I'm currently on Dias(assured mins), Stones (0 or 90) and Gundo(injury?)

                                            surely 3 city is a must? Which 3 though, I dont know with Gundogan injury. But I leaning towards combination of Diaz + Cancelo/Sterling/Gundogan/Stones

                                              Get Cancelo in for Stones or double up in midfield with KDB. Keep Gundo.

                                                Cancelo is possibly injured now too.

                                                The ticks show who had a CS the previous week. Don't think the brackets are required.

                                                    Yes, but Martinez gets more save and bonus points. Clean sheets aren't the only factor to be considered!

                                                Really helpful! When I saw the (+1)s on the bottom list I thought for a second that was comparison against expected over the whole season. Having said that, would it be easy to show actual CS totals vs the sum of odds % over the season?

                                                  Do you mean e.g.:

                                                  West Ham: 9 (+1) followed by (sum of odds % odds given over the season so far/games played)?

                                                      I may have to try that next season as it will probably take me forever to go back the last 24 weeks add them all up for each team etc. 😆

                                                      Even if I did that for this season how would that final percentage figure help?

                                                        Ok no worries that’s very fair! Actually might be more useful done once at the end of the season anyway. The only thing it will really do is inform how effective the odds were.

                                                        I guess you’d see eg Villa really overachieving and Wolves really underachieving if we saw it at this stage, but it wouldn’t tell us how much the odds have adapted to their form this season to be that useful for now.

                                                        Thanks anyway, G 🙂

                                                          I like that idea and I'm not promising or ruling anything out, but let me see if I can get those figures out before the end of the season...

                                                Format's great, thanks :). Not sure about the +1s

                                                Fulham have the same number of clean sheets as Liverpool!

                                                  Thought it would be an easy way to show at a glance who got a clean sheet that week...

                                              Anyone considering Eddison over Martinez on a wildcard? - starting to think its not worth the bother with defenders at City, will get Konsa for some villa coverage still

                                                  Ederson

                                                  1. smash

                                                    Knowing my luck this season I'll accidentally transfer in Eddison the 3rd choice Fulham keeper instead

                                                    I think long term and considering Ederson's price, Martinez is still the better option. Dias is nailed for a City defender

                                                      Hmmm Yeah I think your right, currently got Cancelo so I probbaly would switch to Dias on a WC, just live in fear of Cancelo actually returning big at some point

                                                      You say nailed, but was still rested for one of the last two games...

                                                      I guess that's nailed as far as Pep goes 😆

                                                    I still think it's probably better to have Martinez and Cancelo or Dias.

                                                  Thoughts appreciated, not so sure I want to play McCarty over Pope despite the double.

                                                  McCarthy
                                                  Shaw Dallas Cancelo
                                                  Salah Son Bruno Gundo Raphinha
                                                  Bamford Antonio

                                                  (Pope Stones Coufal Brewster)

                                                  Transfer

                                                  A) Brewster to Ings and play over Antonio
                                                  B) Something else

                                                  Start

                                                  A) McCarthy
                                                  B) Pope

                                                      I'd go for Pope.

                                                      I'm have the same problem, Martinez (vs LEI) or McCarthy (vs CHE, LEE). I'm leaning towards Martinez.

                                                      Brewster to Ings looks good. I think Ings will do well in the double

                                                    Who scores more over next 3?

                                                    A) KDB - ars, WHU, WOL/SOU
                                                    B) Salah - EVE, shu, CHE

                                                      Without knowing when KDB might start again his minutes may be limited in relation to Salah and hence I choose B.

                                                        I’m keen on the early move for KDB.. but not this early!

                                                        Get rid of Antonio. It’s a no brainer

                                                        fwiw i got rid of soucek for raphinha and would prefer to own him over dallas
                                                        but yes keep watkins over antonio if those are the options

                                                              While I respect your opinion, I don’t agree with it at all.

                                                              You really think the team above is worthy of a WC just for the sake of bringing in a few a Leeds players?

                                                                i mean yes imo, because i dont think the value of playing WC a couple of GWs later is the same as maybe falling 15-20 points because of lack of Leeds

                                                                like is holding your WC really worth the points youll lose?

                                                            who is your bench keeper?
                                                            plenty of options. brewster to bamford would be a great upgrade but weekly benching headache
                                                            are you def keeping both son and kane- Son could move to leicester mid
                                                            Robbo poor value- maybe look at Shaw

                                                            would rather take -4 to bring in one or two leeds players than to use wildcard without knowing the fixtures

                                                                Bench keeper is Forster.

                                                                Please pardon my ignorance but I really don’t understand the fuss about Leeds players. They only have one more game than SGW players who could outscore them anyway. After GW25, they have no more DGWs and I have my FH chip available for GW29.

                                                                I’m intending to go without Leeds player for the DGW, which may backfire but am willing to take the risk. Don’t mind missing out on 10 to 15 points, which could easily be made up in the bumper DGW26.

                                                                Do let me know your thoughts mate

                                                                  each to their own for sure
                                                                  their fixtures for this dgw are tricky to read but they can score against most teams and unfortunately this season, its a lot about bandwagons. Bamford has huge ownership so a combined haul will really hurt your rank

                                                                  I sold Bamf + Dallas right before the Leicester away win and it cost me 30k rank
                                                                  Have since sold Soucek + Antonio for Bamf + Raphinha

                                                                  you have FH to use in gw29 but the points ceiling for that week looks low so gut feel there's better times to use the chip (say gw33)

                                                                  good luck
