Guardiola to rotate “more than ever” in Gameweek 31

Leicester City 0-2 Manchester City

  • Goals: Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m), Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m)
  • Assists: Raheem Sterling (£11.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Mendy x3 Jesus x2 Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) x1

Another day, another win and another brutal round of rotation – it was Pep Guardiola business as usual for Manchester City at Leicester.

Sergio Aguero’s (£10.3m) return to the starting line-up dominated the pre-match headlines, but who Guardiola rested was of more interest to Fantasy managers.

The More Things Change…

Three of the five most-owned City assets in FPL were consigned to, and stayed on, the bench – Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m and 35%), John Stones (£5.3m and £22.5%) and the 20.1%-owned Joao Cancelo (£6.1m).

Of the other two, the 24.1%-owned Ruben Dias (£6.1m) was exceptional at the back on his way to a second successive clean sheet, while Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m and 19.5%) led the way for chances created (three) but lacked a goalscoring threat.

The goals instead came from FPL bit-part players Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m) and, most surprisingly, Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m), who now has two to his name this season having managed none from his previous three campaigns.

That earned the left-back maximum bonus and a whopping 15-point haul. He’s started just eight league matches this season, but still managed two goals and four clean sheets.

If – and it’s a big one – he can stay fit, City’s four-pronged silverware assault should ensure that Mendy gets plenty of pitch-time. Then again, just like the rest of the squad, that time will surely be shared between league, cup(s) and European duties.

Four more wins will guarantee City the league title, although that relies on the unlikely premise of Manchester United winning the rest of their fixtures, so even more Guardiola rotation looks inevitable.

Indeed, even the man himself said he would freshen things up “more than ever” in Gameweek 31:

Ilkay, Bernardo, Joao, of course, they could play… but they need rest. No player can sustain, not just physically but mentally, to be ready every day to compete.

Next game, we are going to play fresh legs. And against Leeds, more than ever, fresh legs.

Second-guessing the coach is unwise, but Dias has missed only one match since his debut in Gameweek 4 and De Bruyne has started six of the last seven matches since returning from injury.

More From Leicester

The Foxes were second-best against City, with manager Brendan Rodgers setting his team up to counter-attack, but allowing too many of his men to sit too deep for that tactic to look remotely threatening.

They did improve after the break and the second-half return of James Maddison (£7.1m) after a three-Gameweek absence was welcome news for the club’s Champions League ambitions – and maybe even FPL managers.

Leicester’s top-four fate is very much in their own hands and even with the distraction of an FA Cup semi-final, Rodgers is highly likely to field his strongest possible side across the run-in.

That should boost the appeal of Maddison, who would probably have scored against City had he been in sharper shape, rather than just back from injury.

His availability needn’t spell bad news for the in-form Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.8m), either, with Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) arguably the most at risk – although it was the Nigerian who made way in the second half on Saturday.

Four Champions League rivals in West Ham, Man United, Chelsea and Spurs await in the run-in but Gameweeks 32-35 look ripe for investment.

It has to be said that the defensive form is not brilliant – they’ve kept just one clean sheet in seven matches, and that was against Sheffield United – while Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) has not scored for six matches, although he has offset that with four assists.

Caglar Soyuncu (£5.3m) missed out on Saturday after a positive COVID-19 test, with Rodgers reporting that it was “highly unlikely” that he’ll be back for Gameweek 31.


Leicester City XI (3-4-1-2): Schmeichel; Fofana, Evans, Amartey; Castagne, Ndidi (Mendy 83), Tielemans, Albrighton (Pereira 71); Perez; Iheanacho (Maddison 72), Vardy.

Man City XI (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Mendy;  Rodri, Fernandinho; Mahrez (Torres 79), De Bruyne (Foden 88), Jesus; Aguero (Sterling 63).

Arsenal 0-3 Liverpool

  • Goals: Diogo Jota (£6.7m) x2, Mohamed Salah (£12.4m)
  • Assists: Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m), Sadio Mane (£11.8m), Fabinho (£5.4m)
  • Bonus Points: Alexander-Arnold x3 Jota x2 Andy Robertson (£7.1m) x1

Diogo Jota (£6.7m) came off the bench to score twice and delight his sizeable army of new owners.

The Liverpool midfielder was the fifth-most popular Gameweek 30 signing, only for some 205,000 FPL managers to buy into a player who was replaced by Roberto Firmino (£9.0m) in the starting line-up at The Emirates.

But his introduction after 60 minutes transformed a previously stale encounter and highlighted the lure of Liverpool players for what is an excellent run-in.

Red Or Dead Redemption

It wasn’t just Jota turning heads against Arsenal, although his 29-minute cameo earned him a season-high 12 points.

Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) scored for the first time in six league matches – a barren period during which he’d lost a million owners – to make it 2-0.

And Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.3m) reminded the world and Gareth Southgate of his class with a superb cross to set up Jota’s opener.

That helped the right-back to a second straight maximum bonus point award, further suggesting he might well finish the season with the sort of points barrage that we took for granted over the previous two campaigns.

Fellow full-back Andy Robertson (£7.1m) also earned a bonus point, and it was a mark of how tedious the match had become that the most exciting incident involved the fatigued Scotland international leaving the pitch slowly enough to be subbed off after the 60-minute mark and therefore earn clean sheet points for his 13.3% ownership.

His replacement was Jota and the rest, as they say, was interesting.

Future Not So Tense

Liverpool’s fixture list is sure to tempt FPL investment.

Aston Villa and Leeds are up next – two games with a distinctly ‘could go either way’ vibe – but after that, a massive match at Manchester United is the toughest test among their last six fixtures.

The return of Fabinho (£5.4m) to his rightful midfield slot has stabilised the side and with Jota fit again and the likes of Alexander-Arnold and Salah finding some form, there are plenty of Fantasy options available, including the cut-price Nat Phillips (£4.0m).

The Reds have also kept two league clean sheets in a row.

But with a Champions League campaign still ongoing, rotation cannot be discounted, as boss Jurgen Klopp discussed post-match:

I could have lined up tonight five, six other players who are all in a good shape. So that’s the situation we have now and now we have to use that for the tough period coming up.

And his comments on Jota might strike a note of caution for those looking to buy into the Portugal international:

Look, Diogo played a little bit too much for Portugal for my taste – not criticism of Portugal, just he was long injured, we played him immediately because Bobby (Firmino) was injured and he played too much for us already. Then he went to Portugal and the last two games were really intense, so he felt it a little bit.

The final caveat is that Arsenal were woeful against Liverpool, mustering just three attempts from 36% possession and prompting manager Mikel Arteta to apologise for the ‘unacceptable’ performance.

The Gunners were without Emile Smith Rowe (£4.2m) and Bukayo Saka (£5.2m), in mitigation, two players who have injected some dynamism into their attack of late.

It remains to be seen if they’re fit enough for Arsenal’s appealing run of fixtures starting from Gameweek 31, as they’re two Fantasy assets who offer budget-freeing potential – albeit while carrying a rotation risk around the Gunners’ Europa League ties.

Another semi-popular FPL option, the 5.9%-owned Kieran Tierney (£5.3m), limped off just before the break on Saturday. His manager said of the left-back:

He felt something in his knee. He was in pain so it looks like he will be injured, but we don’t know how long for.

Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Tierney (Soares 45+1), Gabriel, Holding, Chambers; Partey, Ceballos (Elneny 58); Aubameyang (Martinelli 77), Ødegaard, Pépé; Lacazette.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Robertson (Jota 61), Kabak (R Williams 84), N Phillips, Alexander-Arnold; Fabinho, Thiago, Milner; Mané, Firmino (Wijnaldum 78), Salah.

    Wildcarders,

    Dont you think Jota “covering” for Salah is too tisky?
    We have been there more than once.
    For me Bruno is the man to be sacrificed.

        I have them. And have Bruno +5.2 for a striker left.

        So this is why Vardy with Gundo will have to for me

            Make your 5.2m striker a 4.3m striker and spread the cash around

              prefer Martinez(dgw) over kasper
              Lose Vydra for 4.3m
              Keane has DGW

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Just buy all 3. It's hard to argue against them.

      The last two slots are the flex. I'm sticking with Gundo for the next two but if it's clear he's getting rotated too much he'll go as well.

      Son will go after GW32.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        If I had a WC:
        Martinez 3.9m
        Coady Konsa Keane Taa 4.9m def
        Salah Jota Son Raphina Bruno
        Kane Watkins 4.3m

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Mendy over Martinez

          1. Christina.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            no thanks. Martinez has a dgw.

            1. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              That doesn't much matter if it's in GW35 and they have to eat LIV, MCY, WBA, EVE, MUN before that comes...

              1. Christina.
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 5 days ago

                Well the whole idea with a WC is to limit subsequent transfers. no way would I go on a WC without Martinez.

                1. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Well I guess we just disagree then. I think Villa are gonna peter off this season and I'm happy to go without.

                2. Camzy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 10 Years
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  And no, I don't think the purpose of the WC is to limit subsequent transfers. It's to maximize the good fixtures for the run-in.

                  Buying Villa is not doing that at all. I think it greatly overvalues the DGW they have left when all the remaining fixtures are weak.

                  1. Christina.
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    1 month, 5 days ago

                    Villa could have given up yesterday when they were 0-1 down with 15 mins to play. They didn't. Changes were made and they won 3-1. Thats not a team that has nothing to play for. Grealish hopefully back soon as well.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Interesting. It's not much like mine. Why all the Villa? Fixtures are awful, not much to play for, defense looks a bit shakier than before.

          Mendy Forster
          Dias Shaw Rudiger Coady Phillips
          Salah Fernandes Son Gundo Jota
          Kane Antonio Iheanacho

          I will differentiate with my Son + maybe Gundo replacements in GW33. I'm very settled on this draft. The only player I don't have who I want is TAA. But I think Phillips is just fine as 'cover' especially because defense is really expensive already and if you get TAA you play him every week which would leave just one slot.

          1. Atletico Junior
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Why the Días pick? Surely has to rotate with 2 cups, champions League and premier League almost in their pocket... Even if he plays everything, they could easily concede against Leeds... Plus, no gw33

  2. Phil's Stamps

    Posted on previous article...

    A) Maddison -for the differential (have Vardy).
    B) Jota -template, but tripled up with Salah & TAA.

    Leicester's fixtures are just too good to ignore but worried about Nacho's minutes. Maddi to Jota is an easy swap when the fixtures turn for the blues in GW36.

    1. HD7
      • 4 Years

      Maddy is an interesting choice

    2. Bavarian
      • 3 Years

      B

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I don't think Jota is optional. Would rather sacrifice Salah.

    WC team. Have Salah and Salahless team. Which team do you like more?

    A) Team Salah

    MENDY 3.9
    Robbo Dias Coady Mitchell AYLING
    Bruno Jota Gundo SALAH SAKA
    Kane Vardy 4.2

    Or

    B) Team Salahless

    SCHMEICHEL 3.9

      A out of those!

  4. BobB
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years

    I'm not worried about Nachi's game-time: I think Vardy is on his way out.

    1. S.Kuqi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      On his way out to where?

  5. mr messi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Lloris Mendy
    Rudiger Coady Phillips Dawson Shaw
    Bruno Salah Jota Son Raphina
    Iheanacho Kane Antonio

    How is this wc with a plan to bb gw32?

    1. bautasten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Looks good, but expensive goalkeepers to carry 'til the end, assuming you don't want to waste a transfer there. Maybe get Neto instead of Raph to get a better fixture in 32.

  6. Bavarian
    • 3 Years

      B

  7. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is Vardy worth a shout on wildcard (along with Kane)?
    Lack of recent goals is annoying and providing 10m is poor value but if he returns to goal scoring form it could pay off

    1. BobB
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No - Vardy is 34 and shot. Steer clear.

    2. bautasten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think he is, but just can't fit him in if i want Salah. Which big hitter do you drop?

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I was going without Salah and then switch from Son when he blanks keeping cash itb.
        Only draft for now, could just go Maddison in midfield over lingard and go Antonio instead. Thoughts?

        1. bautasten
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Will that allow you to get salah from the off? Like Antonio but unsure on Maddison.

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Have to check that. Still got a fair amount of tinkering to go

    3. 1314
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I might double up him with Ilheanacho, mainly for bench boost gw 32, and Nacho can be benched later on for 3-5-2 if his playing time is in doubt

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That was my original thinking. Few moving parts still

    Arsenal are end-season flat-track bullies. Looking at Lacazette, Saka and (if fit) Tierney on w/c

    1. Milkman Bruno

        They didn’t inspire against pool though. Wait and see for me.

        When is the next DGW After DGW32? Is that likely To be villa & Everton ?

        1. bautasten
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          35 is rumoured I think

          1. Finding Timo

              Ok cheers

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Early days but thoughts on this WC-team:

          Mendy, Forster
          TAA, Shaw, Rudiger, Veltman, Holding
          Salah, Jota, Bruno, Son, Raphinha
          Iheanacho, Kane, Antonio

          Obviously the defense is the question mark. Would you downgrade Raph/Nacho to upgrade the defense? Any other suggestions?

        3. Finding Timo
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Are people not worried about Dias rotation given peps comments about fresh legs?

            1. S.Kuqi
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 5 days ago

              Yes but what can you do? He should be pretty much nailed to start until the title is secured

              1. Finding Timo
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  I am a current stones & Cancello owner so fed up with city

                  Not sure about this... they have 2 cups + champions league

              1 month, 5 days ago

              Was going to go with Dias, but now looking at no City on w/c. Big gamble, but if they progress in CL they may rotate and ease up

              1. Finding Timo
                  1 month, 5 days ago

                  Yes my first draft had Dias but worried about even him being rotated and 6.1m siting on the bench. Lots of people like shaw although their fixtures Look mixed?

                  I'm doing the same but might punt on one of them for the leeds game if we get any clues from the CL fixture..

                  Yes big chance I’ll have none. Not to mention the upcoming blank
                  Points might still be there but choosing the right ones will be frustrating

                  1. Finding Timo
                      1 month, 5 days ago

                      Any good alternative to Dias?

                        TAA plus Tierney (if fit) as prem defs. Plenty of budget options.

                            Thanks I like tierney A lot If fit although maybe he is also rotation risks With Europa

                          I’ve had him for a while and he’s been great but like many worried about continual rotation in the league
                          Tempted by Trent on wildcard. Was going to go Azpi but might go Mendy instead

                    More teams than usual at this stage have (a) little to play for (b) european distractions. Not easy...

                    ie title - decided. relegation places - 2 of 3 pretty much decided. 3rd place now Ful or New (Brighton nearly safe..)

                    Should I do Lingard, Bamford to Salah, Ihenacho for -8

                        IMO Arsenal bad defense and Leno part of the problem. Mixed with Tierney injury and rotation risks, leave alone I think.

                    Kane, Antonio, Ihenacho

                    Probable BB in 32
                    Salah in for Son for 33 (mitb for this)
                    FH for DGWs later

                    Declan Rice sweating on knee injury that he desperately hopes doesn't end his season or his Euros dream. He's definitely out of the Wolves game tonight #whufc

                      Is any of those worth a hit?

                      A) Martinez ➡ Mendy / Patricio / Schmeichel
                      B) Bamford ➡ Ihenacho
                      C) no hit

                      With the Henderson injury and Fabinho back in midfield, how nailed should Philips be considered? To my eye, he has been pretty solid.
                      Could be a bargain and wonder whether the 3 mil extra for TAA is spent better elsewhere

                      Repost excuse
                      The expression "clear and obvious" makes me laugh.
                      Clear and obvious for a Man U or a Brighton supporter will be clearly different.
                      Any independent viewpoint relating to the goal is subjective. Why the hell did the ref not go over to the monitor? Even Goldbridge could not retract his statement.
                      Sick of United getting away with murder. The log "does not lie".? It always has with Man U.

                          Don't like Kane and Son playing Bruno and Shaw.
                          Maybe you will get something from Leeds.
                          Stones rotation?

                        Do Wolves have anything to play for anymore? I have Neto.. But conisdering Patricio, but I feel they really aren't worth investing in, despite the good fixtures coming up.

                            I guess... As a Wolves(presuming you are from your avatar), would you recommend Patricio going forward?

                              Nope too expensive.

                              Also lots of players have let themselves down so far and need to prove themselves, Jose, Silva, Semedo even Traore hasn't made any returns. New contracts and futures will be decided, Fosun are ambitious.

                        Still have WC, TC & BB. 80% template team according to LiveFPL (3xWH, 3xLeeds). What would your chip strategy be? WC 34 & BB 35?

                          I think any advice on chip strategy is meaningless. There can be a massive differnce due to government decisions on crowds that could affect everything. If nothing happens you waste chips IMO

                        Can somebody explain this to me. Arsenal have been an average mid table team now for several seasons yet it seems that fixtures against them are still being regarded as 'tough'. Why is this? They havent been a top tier team since the Wenger days.

                        I keep reading things on twitter and here such as players from a certain team could be targetted when their fixtures turn after the Arsenal game etc.

                        And now it seems a lot of people are wanting Arsenal players in their team just because they have a run of decent fixtures. They haven't been good options all season so why are they good options now just because they have a few decent fixtures coming up, especially when they will be prioritising europe with nothing to play for in the league? Im just not getting it!

                            Season end is looming and people are looking for differentials I guess. I’m not looking at getting any but you have to play the fixtures to some extent.
