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.

            Picking a WC is actually a lot harder than I was thinking!

                      I don’t even know which teams have a double. I’m a bit out of it at the minute

                        1 month, 9 days ago

                        Villa, Everton, Place and Saints look certain

                        City and Leicster likely

                            GW35 according to Ben Crellin

                              If they beat chelsea and Saints respectively in the cup

                That is a good reason to save that chip for me. And I have no idea what I should do with WC, it might easily backfire now.

                Downgrading TAA could get Maddison and Antonio ?

                If you have an OK bench, I would be tempted to use couple of moves and get a better bench for BB and then WC after that. Its tough to get a decent squad without compromise.

                You can also downgrade Son and spread the cash.

                A) Jota (will have to lose Raphinha)
                B) Iheanacho (will have to lose Bamford)

                Thanks.

                    I'm considering Maddy.

                    The pool double up, with Klopp's comments on top seems too much.

                  Wondering how will Wham finish the season?

                  They are kind of unpredictable so I wonder what you mates think?

                  They have some mixed fixs but do you think they can keep the momentum? Especially Cresswell, Lingard and Antonio

                      Just heard Rice out for 6 weeks with a knee injury, will be interesting to see how they cope without - If Soucek goes deeper and they play with Jlingz etc in midfield could be alright, otherwise if noble comes in the no.10 role who knows

                    What do we reckon?

                    1. Dallas/Stones/Cresswell -> Rudiger/TAA. (One of each).
                    2. Two of the above moves for -4.
                    3. One defensive move + Odegaard-> Salah.
                    3. Something else.

                    Martinez.
                    Shaw, Dallas, Stones, Cresswell.
                    Fernandes, Jota, Raphinha, Son, Odegaard.
                    Kane.
                    Steer, Bamford, Watkins, Burn.
                    1ft, 6.1m ITB. No chips left.

                    So for those also on wildcard, who are you planning to captain this week if not a Man City player? It seems many don’t want to play the Pep Roulette this Saturday

                      Salah/Jota would probably be popular choices this GW.

                      Jota is not going to start.. Klopp's comments are pretty obvious.

                          Ref above

                          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.

                    Is TAA a better shout than phillips? 4m for a starting liverpool defender seems amazing value no?

                      1 month, 9 days ago

                      TAA isn’t worth the 3.3m over Phillips imo. Liverpool defence isn’t that secure.

                      His attacking numbers are strong, combined with those fixtures....I'm sold

                      He is a better shout. But he's also 3.3m more expensive. I don't think he's worth 3.3m more. If you have really high team value, maybe.

                      You have no faith in your team beating City? I’d assume Gw37 as that’s when the cup final is being played? Unsure really.

                        If the plan for fans in stadiums comes off, then GW36 will be the weekend of 15-16 May and GW37 will be the midweek after. Matches conflicting with the cup final would be played the midweek before GW36 making a DGW35.

                        Replied to something similar above. Think it depends on how Moyes wants to deal with it - he could play Soucek deeper CDM and have 2 of lingard / Lanzini / Fornals in midfield with Benrama / Bowen / Antonio up top, but if he decides to play Noble then it could be a horrendous finish to the season...

                        C shouldn't be an option. I have the same dilemma and probably leaning towards losing Gundo. Raphinha is nailed with no risk of rotation and a great 8th attacker that can stay on your bench

                      WC31... are you getting Salah back to your teams?

                      I think that Liverpool have wonderful fix-s up to the end. However CL and teams like Real will probably impact their intensity. Still think you cant “cover” Salah with Jota. So Im taking them, wondering a little about TAA or allocate the funds for more balance in the team...

                        Going without until after 32 at least, then I will reevaluate. I don't think he's gonna be a big captaincy pick until 33.

                      I notice a surprising number of players nowhere near a lot of wildcard teams because they’re unfashionable, despite consistently getting points all season.

                        Which players?

                          DCL probably one of them at a guess.

                          Probably WHM players

                        Fixtures really.

                        I'm sticking with DCL and Cresswell for sure

                      Will be thousands of these but feedback appreciated. How's this look?

                      Fabianski Forster
                      Trent Shaw Rudiger Coady Reguilon
                      Son Bruno Gundo Jota Saka
                      Kane Vardy Antonio

                      .2 in the bank, roll FT in 32 and take out Reguilon and Son or Gundo in 33.

                        I'd prefer Jota and Salah. Not sure about Fabianski rather have Mendy

                          Cheers. I had Mendy from 12-23, it was unpleasant. There's not a lot of bonus points to be had with him.

                          I would obviously like Salah, but it's so constricting on the budget to have him, basically means no Vardy or Trent, both players that I want. Will think on it though.

                      Tried a Wild Card draft but it seems like I'm doing more harm than good to my team. Feel like I should just keep faith in my team. With the possible rotation at City, Leeds assets might do well the weekend. Maybe its just blind faith and I will regret not doing it!

                      Good luck to all that's Wildcarding this weekend.

                      Afternoon fantasy people. Can I have your thoughts on this WC.

                      Martinez, Leno.
                      Shaw, Dias, Coady, Rudiger, Philip's.
                      Salah, Jota, Son, Foden, Bruno.
                      Antonio, Kane, Nacho.

                      I want a deep bench and happy to have the advantage or headache....

                        You must have some insane team value to have that team. A little jealous. Only thing, is there need for Martinez and Leno? Leno would be fine, no?

                          Thank you, Martinez and Leno rotate really well till the end of the season and I have had Martinez since GW1 only paid 4.5m, plus he has a two DGWs. Got 1.1m ITB so dont need the extra cash for now.

                      How's this WC team developing?

                      Mendy Areola
                      TAA Digne Cresswell Shaw Saiss
                      Bruno Son Jota Lingard Neto
                      Kane DCL Kelechi

                      At the moment I'm thinking Son and Kelechi to Raphina and Vardy but obviously that could change.

                        That's an extremely expensive defense.

                        Who do you bench every week? That's a no from me because of that.

                          Hi Camzy, Can I have your thoughts on my WC.

                          Martinez, Leno.
                          Shaw, Dias, Coady, Rudiger, Philip's.
                          Salah, Jota, Son, Foden, Bruno.
                          Antonio, Kane, Nacho.

                          I want a deep bench and happy to have the advantage or headache....and I have 1.1m ITB

                          Thanks mate, I'm keen on having a very strong squad as I keep getting burnt by rotation etc and I have BB left too.

                          I don't think a bench of Areola Saiss Lingard/Neto and one other defender is that expensive anyway as there's no cheaper mid I'd be interested in anyway.
