Dias and Stones in latest double-digit Double Gameweek hauls

MAN CITY 2-1 WEST HAM

  • Goals: Ruben Dias (£6.1m), John Stones (£5.2m) | Michail Antonio (£6.5m)
  • Assists: Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m), Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m)| Jesse Lingard (£5.9m)
  • Bonus: De Bruyne x3, Dias x2, Stones x2

CENTRES OF ATTENTION

Dias converts from De Bruyne’s superb cross

What is it about Manchester City centre-backs and Double Gameweeks?

Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) was the hero back in the 2018/19 campaign, while John Stones (£5.2m) and Ruben Dias (£6.1m) recorded 27 and 18-point hauls respectively earlier this season in Double Gameweek 19.

The latter pair were at it again in the first of City’s Double Gameweek 26 fixtures, with both on the scoresheet as Pep Guardiola’s side overcame West Ham in a hard-fought victory.

Two bonus points for each of the two central defenders puts both on 10 points heading into a second Double Gameweek 26 fixture at home to Wolves on Tuesday.

And, just as we saw earlier in the campaign, Dias and Stones’ scores are currently acting as green-arrow fuel compared to those in possession of João Cancelo (£6.1m).

He was left on the bench for the duration on Saturday, the first time that happened in the Premier League since a Gameweek 21 win over Sheffield United.

RUBEN RUBEN RUBEN RUBEN

Another angle of Dias’ goal at the Etihad on Saturday

Despite a couple of misplaced passes and a surprisingly poor free-kick in the opening 30 minutes, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) was undeterred.

On the half-hour mark the Belgian sent in a left-footed missile, deep from the right-hand side, which hit its target in the shape of Dias’ head.

The centre-back powered the ball home, with Stones on his shoulder having made a similar run once De Bruyne got on the ball. That was Dias’ first goal for the Citizens since signing last summer.

Meanwhile, De Bruyne’s assist was his 14th of the campaign from 21 league appearances. He already appears well on the way back to his best, the fact he has a goal and four assists across his last six starts boding well for Double Gameweek 27.

Whether or not De Bruyne offers more potential for that round than Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) or Phil Foden (£6.1m) is hard to say at this stage.

Both players missed out on Saturday’s starting line-up indicating they now stand a better chance of starting both matches in Double Gameweek 27. Of the two, only Sterling remained on the bench, Foden appearing for the last 25 minutes against West Ham.

The same can probably be said about Cancelo, whose credentials for a Double Gameweek 27 captaincy have taken a small boost within the Fantasy Premier League community following Saturday’s action.

MICHAIL HAIL

Antonio brings West Ham level from close range

Only five minutes after hitting the base of Ederson‘s (£6.1m) post, Michail Antonio (£6.5m) wiped out Man City’s clean sheet just before half time. That was the first time Pep Guardiola’s men had conceded a Premier League goal at home since Gameweek 13.

Sergio Aguero (£10.3m), who was anonymous in a 60-minute showing, lost possession in his own half after a poor throw-in from Kyle Walker (£6.1m).

The Hammers shifted the ball to the right, with Vladimir Coufal (£4.7m) galloping into acres of spaces.

His cross saw Jesse Lingard (£5.9m) attempt an effort on goal which was going wide but Antonio was at the far post to convert his seventh goal of the season.

The Manchester United loanee has now put up five attacking returns since joining West Ham, producing 7.8 points per game.

Meanwhile, Antonio’s close-range finish was the first time City have conceded at home since Gameweek 13, Dias was netted an own goal.

“That’s my seventh goal of the season now and all I’m trying to do is go out there and do something for the boys. I’m gutted that I hit the post with the first opportunity I hadbut it was good to get the goal and I’ll keep pushing and we’ll see where we finish in the end. There’s definitely a lot of things to take from the game. There were stages where we had a lot of possession and had them chasing the ball a bit, which they’re probably not used to.” – Michail Antonio

On the performance of West Ham and his own team, Guardiola said after full time:

“Every person who saw the game – it was really tough, difficult, the opponent is incredibly difficult. They had the quality, could play. With [Jesse] Lingard, with [Pablo] Fornals and [Michail] Antonio is always so difficult to control. After 10, 15 minutes we say, ‘okay, today we are not going to paint something beautiful – today is the day to take the three points’. The second half we were much better than the first half, when we struggled. Learn from this, it is reality. When you play a lot of games, runs unbeaten and after a Champions League game with just two days, it’s normal that these kind of things happen.” – Pep Guardiola

STICKS N’ STONES

Stones nets the winner for Manchester City

After West Ham half cleared a City corner nearing the 70-minute mark, De Bruyne found Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m) in a wide position just outside the box.

The winger danced his way into the area in a one-on-one battle with Ben Johnson (£3.9m), turning the young defender inside out before pulling the ball back for Stones.

As was the case with Dias, the England centre-back had remained in the box from a set-piece situation. Stones finished first time with aplomb, giving Darren Randolph (£4.3m) no chance.

“I try and chip in [with goals]. Some days it doesn’t come off for the forwards and today me and Ruben chipped in. It is part of us being a team. We are just glad to get three points and keep the run going.” – John Stones

On Stones and Dias both scoring, Guardiola commented:

“They are the best headers. The second one (Stones’ goal) was brilliant for the composure for Riyad, the right tempo, the right pass, the good finish.” – Pep Guardiola

LINE-UP LESSONS

Ireland international Randolph was standing in between the sticks for Lukasz Fabianski (£5.0m), who suffered an arm injury in training on Friday.

Third-choice West Ham stopper David Martin (£4.0m) was sent out to warm up when Randolph appeared to be struggling with a leg issue. The back-up keeper played the full 90 minutes but had to relinquish goal kicks due to the problem.

However, Moyes does expect Fabianski back in training early next week, as well as reckoning that Randolph will be fine. In his post-match press conference, the Irons chief said:

“Lukasz Fabianski was injured today. Unfortunately, somebody stood on his arm in training as he made a save. It was an accidental collision and I don’t think it’s too bad. Darren Randolph has been out in recent weeks with a bit of a thigh strain. He’s been back in training for a week or two but I think he felt the effects of his thigh again. Thankfully, we got him through to the end of the game. We were ready to make a change, but we found a way for him not to have to take the kicks. Hopefully he’ll get over it and we’ll also get Lukasz back.” – David Moyes

While West Ham have what looks like an extended break until their visit from Leeds on the Monday of Gameweek 27, the fixtures continue to come thick and fast for Man City.

Guardiola’s side will seek their 21st consecutive win and 28th game unbeaten against Wolves on Tuesday.

Despite such dazzling records, Fantasy Premier League bosses will be much more concerned with the midweek team sheet based on Guardiola’s latest ominous quotes.

“We must rest mentally and physically. If not, you cannot sustain it. It’s many games but the big teams have to do it. From tomorrow, we look towards Wolves – in past years we suffered against them.” – Pep Guardiola


Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Zinchenko, Dias, Stones, Walker; Gundogan (Rodri 88′), Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Torres (Foden 64′), Aguero (Jesus 60′), Mahrez.

West Ham United XI (5-2-2-1): Randolph; Johnson (Benrahma 83′), Cresswell, Dawson, Diop, Coufal; Rice, Soucek; Fornals, Lingard; Antonio (Bowen 83′).

Elsewhere in Double Gameweek 26…

West Bromwich Albion recorded a much-needed second clean sheet of the campaign as they beat Brighton 1-0.

Crucially, it makes for back-to-back shutouts for the first time this season, good news for those who invested in either the out-of-position Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£4.6m) for Double Gameweek 26.

The Arsenal loanee was deployed on the right-hand flank of attacking midfield once again and enjoyed a decent chance to score in the first half.

Still, it was an interesting afternoon for Sam Johnstone (£4.5m) owners. They benefitted from the Baggies’ clean sheet and also secured a raft of extras, two for saves and two bonus (provisional).

However, his Double Gameweek 26 score could have already stood at close to 20 points had Brighton’s penalties gone a different way on Saturday.

Pascal Groß (£5.8m) and Danny Welbeck (£5.5m) both missed spot-kicks but each of them struck the woodwork, denying Johnstone the chance to earn a Fantasy reward in each instance.

Aston Villa demonstrated that they do not necessarily need Jack Grealish (£7.6m) to win Premier League matches as they beat Leeds 1-0.

Anwar El Ghazi (£5.3m) has been afforded more game-time in the England international’s absence and he took his chance on Saturday afternoon.

He latched onto the end of Ollie Watkins‘ (£6.5m) wayward shot in the first half, cutting the ball under an on-rushing Illan Meslier (£4.7m).

Leeds were unable to build on their 3-0 win over Southampton in Double Gameweek 26, their key assets faltering in their only match of the round.

With Patrick Bamford (£6.9m), Raphinha (£5.4m) and Stuart Dallas (£5.0m) all failing to register points, it was Emiliano Martínez (£5.3m) who emerged with another big haul thanks to a clean sheet, three saves and maximum bonus. A familiar story.

Meanwhile, Matt Targett (£4.9m) and Ahmed El Mohamady (£4.3m) also benefited from the shutout, although each was booked and lost a respective point.

    Kane cappers confident or not?

    1. Alisson WondHaaland
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Confident. All I need is more than a 4 pointer to be happy (which is what I got from Salah in GW 19)

    2. Wild Rover
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Why wouldn’t they be when he hasn’t even played yet and nobody else has done anything?

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Newer was. Margins and anytime goalscorer odds between him, Salah and DCL or even Bruno are small. He was marginally best bet, but unlikely to be the best with hindsight.

    4. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      I remember the last time I TC Kane, he missed one game & got a YC in the second 3 points.
      I also remember Sanchez, 75 points, absolutely awesome that game week!

      1. dshv
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I was with that sanchez choice .. times good times

    5. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      It’s a perfectly reasonable choice - but so was salah or Fernandes

      Nothing to be done about it now!

    6. Dwotle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Last time I TCed Kane I got 60-odd points. Hoping for similar.

    7. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Yup

    8. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Last year I brought him in for some easy fixtures.... nothing. Probably the same result this season.

  4. Toby Lerone

    Martinez non owner... he just won't go away will he ?!

    1. JayLegend
      • 6 Years

      Crazy if you haven’t given in by now

      1. Toby Lerone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        He will be coming in next week I think in prep for 29. I had Johnstone today(lucky) but wouldnt have minded a Leeds goal to make it worth something

    2. Il Capitano
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Had to get him on WC this week, don't want to think about all the points I've missed out on having McCarthy/Johnstone over him. Set and forget until the end now.

      • Alisson WondHaaland
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I got Konsa in this week. He's halved the tears wept

      • Wild Rover
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Lol at Arsenal

      • CrouchDown
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        You got lucky he’s injured

        1. StayoutheSpiceZone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          He’ll be fine

    3. Ian Davis
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Bamford > Antonio ?

      I won’t make the move yet but could see Antonio doing very well in that game.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I feel its a littler early to ask this. Lots of games go.

        For example, should DCL re-injure himself for example, I'd be recommending you to do DCL > Antonio so you'd have two for GW29.

        The moves could pay off in isolation, but keep in mind your GW29 plan I'd say.

        1. Ian Davis
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Yeah very true, I agree mate. Free hit in GW29 so won’t affect that, but I’ll save any transfers until the end of next week

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Fair play on the FH29 plan. No harm in gagging opinions early in moves for sure - but yeah, hold on actually making it for a while 🙂

        2. TheDragon
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I’m considering DCL -> Antonio

      Martinez didnt get max bonus, unfortunately.

      1. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        9 points and another game to go is grand.

      2. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        Happy to have those 9. I took -16 to BB and get for example him in.

      3. Pommie22
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Just checked .
          Martinez and El Ghazi (29bps)
          Mings and Konsa (24bps)
          So Emi eases the Cancelo benching just as he did for the Stones benching GW24.
          His star shines brightly.

        • POTATO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Martinez gets max bonus and 10 pts 🙂

      4. Finding Timo
          2 months, 18 days ago

          I can get 8 players for GW29 as will have 3 transfers between now and then... I am thinking 3 Or even 4 for a hit from below? 1, Brighton defender 2, son (already got Kane)3, Watkins or grealish 4, Antonio 5. Aubameyang or Saka?

          1. TheDragon
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            Kane, Son, Bamford, Antonio, Raphinha, Grealish, Martinez

            If you’ve got that 7 then you can’t have a bad week really.

            Then if you have the luxury: Cresswell, Dunk, Aubameyang

            1. Finding Timo
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Cheers have bam, son & Raphinha already so will look at getting others

                1. Finding Timo
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Sorry already got Kane not son !

                2 months, 18 days ago

                A few hits will get you 11 for 29. Depends if you have WC for GW30 to rearrange your team and if not how it will look in GW30 and further.

                1. Finding Timo
                    2 months, 18 days ago

                    Cheers - I have WC left

                      Happy days, same here. Let's you pick who you like, more or less, for 29 and get a new team in planned for 30-38.

                      1. Finding Timo
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Yeh that’s great and good call , although as scholes said 8 or 9 probAbly enough

                    Anywhere near 8 or 9 players is good enough imo

                        2 months, 18 days ago

                        Yeh cheers be good to avoid too many hits if can

                    Another classic DGW. So far

                    3 x defender/keepers play: 29 points
                    3 x midfield/ attackers play: 6 points

                    It always seems to be the defenders who come good in these weeks

                      Well, my attackers haven't started yet. Watkins got assist, cannot complain.

                    Does Dias play in midweek do we think folks?? I know he was on the bench and Stones and Laporte played but he had be ill most of that week so would not have been in 100percent condition, prior to that he was an ever present, or does Pep play Dias, Stones and Laporte in that 3-3-1-3 formation with Cancelo slightly more advanced?? Interested to here peoples thoughts!! Cheers

                      I think he plays - if he plays they win guaranteed - try to get the league wrapped up as quickly as possible

                        I’m glad you’ve said that mate!! My same thoughts exactly!! He’s been immense all season that guy!! I just like some reassurance from others that they think he will play too!! Haha I’m top of my mini league and I have him and they all have Stones, but he was rested in Europe and Dias has played the last three so second guessing myself haha

                        How confident are you Cancelo starts?

                          Very, given he just missed this one

                          Very. He only gers rested once in a packed run against weak opposition. Its become predictable

                          He will, that is basically 99-100% supposing he is fit.

                        Yeah i think they could do that too mate(see above) that 3-3-1-3 formation thing they did before and worked really well!!

                      Dias is the most nailed on outfielder at City, which isnt saying much. Wouldnt be surprised if he started, wouldnt be surprised if he didnt.

                      I think he plays vs United for sure so could easily see a rest vs Saints before next champions league

                      Tough one. Normally I would say yes but I think Pep will want Dias for the derby so he may rest vs Wolves

                    Dias has been almost ever present. Yet this might be the 2nd game when he is rested.

                    Almiron out for a while according to Bruce. Newcastle in relegation trouble now. If St Max injury not too bad could be worth getting cos he's cheap and has something to play for.

                      That gw38 New v Fulham game could be epic

                      Always love buying flair players like St Max, just a shame he never seems to last more than 3 games in my team and I don't really want to be messing around sorting injuries.

                        Would be a better player with Leeds, Villa, West Ham with a bit better quality around him.

                            Absolute bargain. There’s been many great bargains this season. It will be interesting to see what everyone does after gw 30 when their fixtures take a sharp turn

                            Pope was too last year. The pricetag is often decieving for GKs in particular due to save points and baps

                          Yeah I had a feeling about Raph, so played him over Targett. Still kicking myself

                            Wouldn’t be kicking yourself for that. He could have easily had a goal

                          GW3 McCarthy > Martinez was probably the best decision I made all season

                        I lost value in no Cancelo and no Sterling, but we go again. I realised after that I messed up (V) too so I am totally f00kd if Bamford needs to take up the mantle.

                        Anyway, happy with some of the fringe plays. Johnstone and Martinez both get 10 but I reckon only one plays the 2nd game this DGW

                          Martinez just 9

                        50 PTS Saturday without (C) is the best Saturday of the season so far

                          Brilliant score that! I’m on 29(-4), and that was enough for a tiny green. You must be looking at a big green arrow

                          Let’s see what tomorrow brings

                        Depending on KDB & Jota’s performance how do I squeeze them in?

                        Martinez,
                        Dias, Cancelo, Shaw,
                        Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundo, Barnes
                        Kane, Watkins

                        Sanchez, Bamford, Aina, Dallas

                        .1

                          If you want KDB then you’ll have to lose one of Son, Bruno or Mo. If you want Jota, it looks like Barnes will be the fall guy

                        Martinez and Konsa sneaking some baps. Love to see it.

                        Who does Lamptey replace in the Brighton defence when hes fit?

                        1. Bad Kompany
                          • 3 Years
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Veltman is currently playing where he plays so I’d assume him

                        KDB struggling to keep up with Stones goal tally

                          Ha... it’s funny because it’s true 🙂

                        Is Gundo done as an option now? Didn’t see the game today.

                        1. Bad Kompany
                          • 3 Years
                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Not at all. His run started before KDB injury. His numbers might go down a little but still easily worth his price tag. The only reason to get rid of him would be if you prefer 3 other city players

                        2. JJO
                          • 8 Years

                          Nowhere near a chance today
                          But he will probably remain good option with that price tag

                          He’s probably gunna be my captain this week. After today I’m not overly confident, but I can’t put the armband on Stones or Cancelo though

                        Dias Stones and Martinez all tens 🙂 - hoping they get to play again this week but rotation plus Martinez not taking goal kicks a concern.

                        What's up with FPL Top10k, surely there's more than 1.13 players this week.
                        Has happened on a couple of occasions now.

                        1. POTATO

                          2 months, 18 days ago

                          Top 10k have played 5.56/25.1 on my rank page, so I assume that is the up to date figure.

                        Martinez bumped up to 3 bonus, haha!
