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.

        The Bonus Points System (BPS) utilises a range of statistics to create a BPS score for every player. The three best performing players in each match will be awarded bonus points. 3 points will be awarded to the highest scoring player, 2 to the second best and 1 to the third.

        Examples of how bonus point ties will be resolved are as follows:

        If there is a tie for first place, Players 1 & 2 will receive 3 points each and Player 3 will receive 1 point.
        If there is a tie for second place, Player 1 will receive 3 points and Players 2 and 3 will receive 2 points each.
        If there is a tie for third place, Player 1 will receive 3 points, Player 2 will receive 2 points and Players 3 & 4 will receive 1 point each.

          Fair enough. Would be better if they just awarded points to the players with the 3 highest bonus scores IMO.

          3 - Neves
          2 - Lascelles, Traore
          1 - Neto

          Seems better to me.

            Neves, Lascelles and Traore had the 3 highest bonus scores in the game.

        Unfortunately he had triple Leeds + McCarthy on BB so not much more in the way of gains from that.

        Regardless yes, loads of fixtures left.

      I got 6 on my BB in DGW 19 if that makes you feel better. imo its a very poor chip, get it out of the way and focus on the rest of the season

    finally El Ghazi produces.

    Is next week my final chance for a decent Triple Captain, own Cancelo, Dias and Gundogan?

    Will there be any Liverpool or Spurs ones later this year?

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

    Can Brighton and City have a penalty shootout? Would be comedy gold

    1. baines is god
      • 9 Years

      mate brighton are the most unlucky team in the league

  7. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 18 days ago

    People with TC left, who are you targeting for the honour?
    I’m guessing the majority will be aiming for a DGWer, which leaves us with:

    - Kane/Son (owed a DGW with Sou + ???)
    - City player next GW (Gundo/KDB?)
    - Grealish (owed a DGW with Eve + ???)
    - Wait to see what DGW teams get thrown our way in GW31 or whatever

    1. baines is god
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      i have Gundogan but i fear he's no longer a goal threat playing deeper

    2. skodaole2
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 18 days ago

      Would TC Watkins now but I had to use the WC, so just captained him. Probably will TC him in their next double if the second fixture is favourable, else I ll go for Kane in Spurs' double, definitely not MCI players next week during that crazy schedule.

    3. gogs67
        2 months, 18 days ago

        It's why I played mine this week, not because one stood out, but because I'd struggle to find a good one during the rest of the season.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 18 days ago

        I would have used it this week but made a late decision to WC.
        Its going to have to be Kane's double for me.

      • noquarternt

        KDB next week

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          If he plays vs wolves i would think he is going to be benched against united or southampton

          1. noquarternt
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            He’ll play against Man U, there’s no question about that. Southampton is another question.

        Anyone else bench boost triple Leeds? Now the dust has settled how you feel? I’m pretty gutted but I still doubt I have a stronger looking bench than Bam, Rap, Dallas and Areola with the double.

          How about week 30 when Leeds play Sheffield? That's when I've saved mine for.

              • 11 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              They are, they tend to do better when teams attack them.. Which may mean the SHU fixture isn't the best one.

              1. TheCurseOfRaheem
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                Yeah, I think it’s worth seeing how dire Sheffield’s position is by then. Their players will start throwing it in soon I imagine. Right now they’re still somehow quite resolute defensively when you consider their position.

                1. All about the galacticos
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 18 days ago

                  I thought about GW30 but if hold 3 city, it would be could be risky waste of BB if one or two don't play.
                  At least this week you get them playing at least 1 in 2.

          2. Who are all Lukakus
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 18 days ago

            You won't bench Leeds players against SHU.

            1. Snevitz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 18 days ago

              No of course I won't, I'm playing BB.

              1. Who are all Lukakus
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 18 days ago

                The point is you never bench Leeds assets against SHU in any situation. You will actually bench boost someone else but not Leeds assets.

          I've got the exact same bench - pretty disappointed tbh, but then again I also have Martinez and Targett so swings and roundabouts

        48 points but took a -12

        El Ghazi, Dias and Martinez deliver. Finally the possibility of a massive 200 point gameweek is on the horizon.

          i'm 250k so unfortunately not where i wanted to be at this stage but a top 100k finish is still a result i guess if i can pull it off. FPL is so much harder now than 2011 when i used to play

            2 months, 18 days ago

            I wasn’t sure. The last time Hause had minutes Konsa didn’t play. Not sure on the circumstances surrounding that part of the season

        2. skodaole2
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 18 days ago

          Normally yes, Hause played only when Konsa was injured. And their manager never changes starting XI when players are fit

              We do not have anything official yet about GW28 doubles, right? Have 3 AVL a long time now so that would be a good surprise since both games would be preferable.

                Not yet, the Crellin rates it at 50-70% chance it’s in 28. He’s usually right so I’m planning for it.

            United Xg at Chelsea almost exactly 1, about 1.8 at CPFC. so not expected to be that high scoring a DGW for them as a team but they have been exceeding XG all season so what's one more time

          Justin
          Soucek

            All good shouts. Soucek has been a huge thorn for me too, yeah. ML leader had him during that purple patch.

            Stones though, he’s done me in two DGWs in a row!

        I may be getting angry for no reason ...

        But Liverpool fan forums are saying Kelleher is still injured and won't replace Allison.

        I transferred Kelleher in because of the line up article here. One thing to get Pep Roulettes wrong, or guess a pick wrong ...but if he's been injured all week and you're telling us he's playing, then that's shabby.

        I transferred my GK out, who scored 10 so far, because I trusted the deal that j pay for good research

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          you transferred out the best GK in the game for a reserve keeping in a team out of form... hmmm only one person to blame here 😉

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

          You transferred out a nailed keeper with a DGW (not sure if you meant Johnstone or Martinez - their latter also have BGW29)... for a keeper who you'll have to sell again in a week or so, and who is also playing for a team struggling for wins & CSs?

          That is at least half on you.

          1. Aftereffect
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 17 days ago

            Happy to accept whatever points the Liverpool defence get over the next 3, and I've Sanchez to come in for 29.

            Just anxious that so many Liverpool fans seem to regard the Kelleher injury as fairly common knowledge for a week (?).

            Mind you - seems that Klopp isn't ruling out playing Allison. That is wild. Making someone play 2 days after you lose a parent in a tragic accident was not something I thought possible, especially of Liverpool.

            Whatever about the fantasy football, I hope they don't do that.

              Team news is free, not behind a paywall, and is far from guaranteed. I can’t remember ever relying on a team prediction from any source, it’s a guess by definition..

            I hate these rumours, and all based on a ridiculous presumption. I can’t believe there’s a cast iron decision by Klopp so far in advance and there’s any number of reason that Jota did what he did (maybe he just needed funds for KDB). Nothing we can do now so just have to see tomorrow.

                        That really doesn’t matter, you are in position to finish top 500; perfect time to combine template with a few diffs and make a run; there are lots of twists coming, easy picks are going to be more difficult to find

                  No I’d just go rogue and pick random players to try and really differentiate, I.e feel like there’s nothing to lose so pick high risk high reward players

                    this season has funneled decisions to point it aint been fun.
                    e.g. we can't make any transfers for players not playing in GW29
                    it would be nice to go rogue

              Those with TC on Kane, what would you be happy with/expecting from him?
              I think I’d happily do a runner right now with a goal in each and 3 BAPS = 18 points

                Expect 1 g 1 a and 4 bps, anything double digits is fine

                just one day of fixtures, it's hardly like you can plan for the next GW

                  But I’m struggling to sleep, nervous about tomorrow. Will no doubt have nightmares

                No decisions to be made yet and all the boasting of high scores has already been done.
