Scout Notes

Mahrez and Jesus emerging as Man City’s key form assets

Man City 4-1 Wolves

  • Goals: Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m), Gabriel Jesus x2 (£9.2m) | Conor Coady (£4.8m)
  • Own goals: Leander Dendoncker (£4.6m)
  • Assists: Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan (£6.2m) | Joao Moutinho (£5.2m)
  • Bonus points: Jesus x3, Mahrez x2, Coady x1, Moutinho x1

MAHVELLOUS

Riyad Mahrez (£8.1m) is quietly emerging as a form Manchester City asset after his involvement in their Double Gameweek 26 meeting with Wolves.

In a game that Pep Guardiola rotated several key players once again, it was the Algerian who extended his recent run of scoring Fantasy Premier League points.

He provided the assist for a first-half Leander Dendoncker (£4.6m) own goal, adding his fourth attacking return in as many matches.

And in the closing stages, he pounced on a Nelson Semedo (£5.2m) tackle to fire beyond Rui Patrício (£5.3m) into the bottom corner – his fifth attacking return during the aforementioned timeframe.

Unsurprisingly, that is more than any other Manchester City asset over the same period, which has seen Mahrez put together four successive starts.

GIFT OF THE GAB

Gabriel Jesus‘ (£9.2m) late show ensured Fantasy managers could not afford to overlook him ahead of Double Gameweek 27.

After snatching at most of his chances against Wolves, the Brazilian added two goals after the 80th minute to cement his status as another key form asset for Manchester City.

Ilkay Gundogan (£6.2m) is now the only member of Guardiola’s squad to register more attacking returns than the Brazilian since Gameweek 21.

Jesus has contributed four goals and two assists during that time.

Crucially, the forward was rested in both the Arsenal game in Gameweek 25 and the West Ham trip in Double Gameweek 26, his two substitute appearances in those matches suggesting he could be in line for two starts and significant pitch-time during Double Gameweek 27.

STERLING EFFORT

Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) was an unfortunate man in Double Gameweek 26.

After missing the first of Manchester City’s two matches in the round, he was agonisingly close to a big haul in the second.

Guardiola’s formation helped the England international get in some dangerous areas with João Cancelo‘s (£6.2m) left-back role allowing him to peel away from his left-hand station in the front-three and drift into central areas.

In the 73rd minute, Sterling got on the end of a Mahrez cross and backheeled a decent effort just wide of the left-hand post.

And three minutes later, he cut inside from the left and curled a shot just around the right-hand post, shaving it on the way past.

And late-on, he was tackled by Semedo before Mahrez thundered City’s third goal past Patrício.

Sterling owners may also have experienced some frustration with Jesus, who had several opportunities to square to him during the match, often opting to shoot from wide angles instead.

CRACKING THE COAD

While there will be plenty of focus on Manchester City’s defensive assets for Double Gameweek 27, it is worth noting they failed to keep a clean sheet in either Double Gameweek 26 outing.

Conceding to West Ham and Wolves, it was the first time Guardiola’s men had been breached in back-to-back games since November.

There was, of course, a random element to Wolves’ Tuesday-night strike, Conor Coady (£4.8m) finding the net for the first time since April 2018.

Meanwhile, Manchester City restricted Nuno Espirito Santo’s men to one shot on target the entire game.

Those looking to invest at this end of the pitch in Double Gameweek 27 can also take some comfort in Guardiola’s team selection on Tuesday.

John Stones (£5.2m) earned a second benching in his last four matches, perhaps suggesting he stands a good chance of featuring from the beginning against Manchester United and Southampton.

Ruben Dias (£6.1m) has started each of the last four while Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) has now played 90 minutes in three of the last five.

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Laporte, Dias, Walker; B Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Sterling, Jesus, Mahrez.

Wolves XI (3-5-2): Patrício; Saïss, Coady, Hoever; Jonny (F Silva 55′), Neves (Otasowie 90′), Moutinho, Dendoncker, Semedo; Neto, A Traoré.

      So what VPN is everyone using?

      Consider PrivateVPN for 10 USD a month...would prefer free with over 2GB allowance but doesn't seem to exist...

      Any thrifty personnel on?

      Come on Kane don't let my TC down!!!

        FastestVPN lifetime sub cost me 20 quid 3 years ago. Still works.
        Servers do tend to disconnect (safely) every now and then, takes a couple of minutes to reconnect. If you want to use VPN for streaming then i wouldnt recommend it, else it is great.

        1. Life_Ban
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Hi is that £20 across 3 years or an annual cost pls?

        2. Wigflex
          • 6 Years

          I use Nordvpn works perfectly for me

          How to put your trust in a VPN? Like, is there a reason I should be happy to give PrivateVPN access to my activities?

          1. Egg noodle
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            There are some VPNs that are open source, they are the only ones you can really trust. The rest can claim a 'strict no logs policy' but that doesnt mean anything because there are no audits.

            1. Life_Ban
                2 months, 3 days ago

                I wonder if people can use uTorrent to download a free VPN (i.e. NordVPN) for use...prob doesn't work like that right? Just it seems you can torrent pretty much a lot of programs for free nowadays...

            i used to use Cyberghost which is pretty good, not sure how it compares to other VPN's though

            moving away from 3 city or just double city defence?

            non owner; what a player. so comfortable all over the pitch

            1. gogs67
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Move away from double City defence I'd say. Fine for DGW in theory, but for the run in playing 3-5-2 you want to make sure of 3 decent starters
                Maybe get away with Edison and Dias

              El Ghazi, Traore, Saka and reluctantly Lingard sound better

            3. Honker Muddlefoot

              2 months, 4 days ago

              I’m in the same boat as you. At the moment, I’m tempted to start DCL and bench Barnes to give me extra time to see if Grealish comes back for BGW 29, or if I need to drop down to someone else, like a Saka. Don’t know your BGW 29 plan/team set-up, but that’s my plan unless Grealish is passed fit for either tomorrow or the weekend.

            Are any on KDB, Stones, Cancelo actually worth getting in for a -4?
            Could get Mahrez/Foden for free but more risky.

                Don’t be misleading. He’s fit to play tomorrow.

            I have Double Burnley defense on BB and Vardy.. After Burnley’s dire performance on Sunday, Leicester with Cengiz Under and Vardy could rip them apart.. Predictions?? 0-0 is possibly my best hope of a decent return... Everyone will laugh when I mention C.Under, he can pick a decent pass on his day!!!

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Or.... BUR will tighten up again and defend resolutely as they have shown they can do admirably.

              I wouldn’t bet on this being the floodgates opening

              Leicester are bound to score, they usually find a way. so 1-0 or 2-0 in my view.

                • 5 Years

                Maybe with Barnes and Maddison out, it’s his time...

            Which looks best chaps? I’m using FT for GW29 and have WC for 31 probably. Currently at c. 48k OR

            A) Roll FT and sit on the Barnes decision
            B) Barnes > Lingard/ Jota (FT)
            C) Barnes, Pope > Son/ Bale, Forster (-4)
            D) Barnes, Bruno > Son, Bale (-4)
            E) Something else!

            Dias, Stones, Shaw

              Barnes to Lingard tempting for Leeds game - only downside though is you would need to play one of your Leeds players v Chelsea next week

              I think I would go C Son and Forster- Son could do well in Palace game

              1. Don Kloppeone
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years

                Thanks mate

                Lingard would be a fun pick but C with Son is prob the most sensible

                Let’s see how rest of this GW plays out!

            Barnes to

            A El Ghazi
            B Traoré ( Villa)
            C Lingard ( misses 28)
            D Saka

              C of those if your bench is good enough

              If you have a descent sub for gw28 then Foden else Lingard.

                Nice. I tc'd KDB and am on 91 so would have been about the same if he'd scored even once tonight

              Mahrez has more points (1) than Kdb despite playing 200 less minutes and is nearly 4m cheaper. Almost no articles/pictures of Mahrez on this site all season while it seems there have been scores on Kdb.

                It's so often fast or famine with mahrez. You get 20 points and then nothing for weeks on end.

                Last 3 gameweeks he has returned, but think they are the only back to back returns all season.

              C) bale

                Have so much money tied on him for me.

                Highest point scorer too.

                If you are taking the risk to take Bruno out, get Bale and captain him.

                  Watkins. My bad, I meant to start Antonio and bench Watkins.

              Damn looking at my team I want rid of Sterling, Bruno, James and DCL (if no 28 double) and currently only have 4 assets that play in 29 with no FH.
              Close to quitting and trying again next season!

              1. Zladan
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Then Son, Grealish, Reguilon/ Raphinha (depending on which James) & Kane are easy replacements no?

                1. jia you jia you
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 4 days ago

                  Have Son and will likely double, possibly triple up on Spurs attack if they look good again and get through unscathed

                  1. Zladan
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 4 days ago

                    I’d also not sell Bruno. He’s just too good.

                    Also the EO is such a killer.

                    1. jia you jia you

                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 4 days ago

                      think getting rid for City, WHU, Blank is perfectly fine...over those three GWs loads will outscore him

                    2. pingissimus
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 4 days ago

                      EO is a mindset

                      It's an opportunity as much as a killer especially with a premium when you can spread funds effectively. Here Bale plus Kane gives you two shots at it.

                  2. Warby84
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 4 days ago

                    The amount of Space Bale hit for his 2nd goal was league 2 standards, think Fulham will see if he really is a differential.. I have my doubts...

            10. Chandler Bing
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Has Gundogan been moved to a more defensive role than previously since the arrival of KdB? I wonder if he's worth holding onto after the DGW.

                He looked good today in the 10 minutes that he played

              Can field this team for gw27:

              Martinez
              Cancelo, Stones, Coufal
              Bruno, Salah, Gundo, Raphinha
              DCL, Kane, Bamford
              (Pope; Mee, Kilman, Barnes*)

              1) Sell Barnes
              2) Save FT

              No rush to get rid of City players. You’d want them pretty much any week over a single week player. So even if you only get one appearance next week that’s better than having just one game from so many others.

                  He has this habit. Not really in keeping with the mood round here these days!

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Yeah as much as I want rid of Sterling, prefer to keep even over Bruno for the next couple of GWs at least, double defence is an easier hold.

                1. Rupert The Horse
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 8 Years

                  Yeah Sterling has been so so close to a haul. Apparently the assist was a no go but the ball still moves forward so I’m not convinced it wasn’t. That aside he looked pretty decent.

                    it still feels like stubbornness though holding him over Gundo all this time!

                      Oh yeah, I forgot you don’t have Gundo.

              Is Cancelo to Dias (bench Barnes until WC) too sideways a move? Own stones and gundog. Thanks

              Dgw used to be so much fun back in the days

                Barnes has been annoying but if Kane does well, so much will be forgotten. Plus if mighty Marti grabs a clean sheet with DCL and Watkins scoring it’ll be a success.
