Dallas belies Man City test to become top-scoring FPL defender in GW31

Man City 1-2 Leeds

  • Goals: Ferran Torres (£6.9m) | Stuart Dallas x2 (£5.1m)
  • Assists: Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) | Patrick Bamford (£6.6m), Ezgjan Alioski (£4.3m)
  • Red cards: Liam Cooper (£4.3m)
  • Bonus points: Dallas x3, B Silva x2, Oleksandr Zinchenko x1 (£5.5m)

DALLAS SELLERS CLUB

Not for the first time this season, Stuart Dallas (£5.1m) highlighted how fixture-proof he can be with his big haul against Manchester City.

The out-of-position Fantasy Premier League defender was sold by 220,730+ managers for Gameweek 31, losing more owners than any other asset in his position.

Meanwhile, only Emiliano Martínez (£5.4m) was the only player to be found on more FPL benches for the latest round of action than Dallas.

Despite such lack of faith, the Northern Ireland international scored twice in a smash-and-grab win and soared to become this season’s top-scoring FPL defender (at time of writing).

His 17-point haul is sure to cause his remaining owners to reevaluate how and when they use Dallas, even with Liverpool and Manchester United up next.

That is because his record against the so-called ‘bigger’ clubs is nothing to be sniffed at.

Against Liverpool in Gameweek 1, Dallas registered an assist, he produced five points against Arsenal in Gameweek 9, the same score at Old Trafford United in Gameweek 14 before an unexpected six-point haul against Chelsea in Gameweek 28.

There are, of course, one-point match tallies in Gameweeks 4, 11 and 17 (against Manchester City, Chelsea and Spurs) on his copybook, as well as a minus-one in the Gameweek 24 defeat to Arsenal, but Dallas is becoming a player who always carries explosive potential, especially as he continues to operate as a central midfielder.

He now has four double-digit hauls this season, is the best-value defender of the campaign, as well as the top-scoring one and is just three points shy of John Lundstram‘s (£4.9m) famous 144 points across the 2019/20 season.

DIAS ANOTHER DAY

Meanwhile, Saturday’s lunchtime encounter was a frustrating one for owners of Manchester City assets at both ends of the pitch.

Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.2m) were all unused substitutes while Ilkay Gündogan (£6.0m) and Phil Foden (£6.0m) both emerged from the bench for one-point cameos.

Ferran Torres (£6.9m) and Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) got the only attacking returns of the afternoon.

However, it was not just the advanced positions that suffered from Pep Guardiola’s infamous game of roulette, with  Rúben Dias (£6.2m) also benched.

While he remained among the substitutes all afternoon, avoiding any cameos, the centre-back’s first Premier League benching since Gameweek 24 perhaps sends a warning about what to expect of Manchester City line-ups between now and the end of the season.

They have an important Champions League quarter-final second-leg against Borussia Dortmund midweek as well as an FA Cup semi-final and EFL Cup final to contend with.

The fact that Dias missed out against Leeds despite a new injury to Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) highlights the strength in depth at Manchester City even in defence.

Nathan Aké (£5.4m) is now back to full fitness and made his first league appearance since Gameweek 15 on Saturday afternoon.

Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) is also on the sidelines with Laporte, having picked up an issue that stopped him from training earlier this week.

“Aguero has a big problem. The last three, four days could not train. Laporte yesterday didn’t feel good. Some problems in the hips. The doctors said they are not ready.” – Pep Guardiola

It was also interesting to see what Guardiola did when Manchester City were chasing a 1-0 lead against 10 men for the majority of the second-half.

Just short of the hour-mark, Gündogan came on for Aké, Fernandinho (£5.4m) dropped backwards into defence, Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m) reverted to left-back from central midfield and Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) pushed forward into a left-winger role.

That particular reshuffle saw Raheem Sterling (£11.3m) tucked into a more central role alongside Gabriel Jesus (£9.2m), not that it was a fruitful one.

Making just his second start from a possible seven, Sterling largely saw his supply lines cut off at the Etihad Stadium, crowded by a deep Leeds block and missing the quality delivery of De Bruyne.

“(I want him to deliver) himself. Sterling is an important player for us, always has been. Everything we achieved in these last years, impossible to think without him. In the last games, Bernardo and Phil were outstanding, they play.” – Pep Guardiola

MASTER PLAN

Still, how much Fantasy managers can read into this surprise defeat remains to be seen when we consider Manchester City have performed against Leeds this season.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men caused the Citizens problems in their 1-1 draw back in Gameweek 4 and have now set some interesting records by beating them on Saturday.

This was Manchester City’s first home defeat against a newly-promoted side in 42 Premier League games since losing 2-0 to Reading in February 2007.

Meanwhile, of the 77 teams Guardiola has faced in his managerial career, Leeds are one of just two sides he has failed to beat, Middlesbrough the other.

Raphinha (£5.6m) certainly asked plenty of questions in the opening exchanges, getting behind Mendy twice and nearly setting Bamford up for a tap-in were it not for a crucial John Stones (£5.2m) intervention.

The Brazilian came close to adding his seventh goal of the season during the closing stages but his incredible breakaway run was expertly stopped by an Ederson (£6.1m) save.

Raphinha’s 13.6% ownership will have an eye on Bielsa’s next press conference as he was withdrawn with an unspecified knock during stoppage time at the Etihad Stadium.

“I haven’t asked (about Raphinha), but I don’t have the feeling it is serious. Rodrigo had a problem in the last session. Not in condition to participate.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; B Mendy (Foden 74′), Aké (Gundogan 59′), Stones, Cancelo; Zinchenko, Fernandinho, B Silva; Sterling, Jesus, Torres.

Leeds United XI (4-1-4-1): Meslier; Alioski, Llorente, Cooper, Ayling; K Phillips; Costa, Roberts (Koch 63′), Dallas, Raphinha (Shackleton 90+6′); Bamford (Struijk 45+3′).

Elsewhere in Gameweek 31…

Ollie Watkins (£6.5m) struck again as Aston Villa caused problems for Liverpool at Anfield in Gameweek 31.

The gifted former Brentford and Exeter City man added his third attacking return in four matches, his 12th Premier League goal of the season and a fourth against Liverpool this campaign.

In doing so, he became the first player to score that many against the Reds in a single season since Andrey Arshavin in 2008/09.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (£12.5m) continued his revival with a second goal in as many league matches, a solid return for those who captained him in Gameweek 31.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.4m) is also back on the radar in a big way after he added his second goal of the season in stoppage time.

He has now produced eight points or more in four of his last six Premier League appearances.

Differentials Kai Havertz (£8.2m) and Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) were the star players for Chelsea as they beat Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The German international produced a goal and assist in an electric first-half display while Pulisic registered a brace.

Both players have shown decent form over recent weeks, Havertz now with a goal and three assists since Gameweek 27 while Pulisic has three goals in his last two appearances.

Kurt Zouma (£5.3m) was one of only a few Chelsea defenders as their back-line let down investors for a second match running.

In a game where Crystal Palace offered next to nothing, Edouard Mendy (£5.2m) and the Blues’ back-three conceded the hosts’ first shot on target in the second half, dispatched by Christian Benteke (£5.5m).

Zouma managed to offset the loss of clean sheet with his fifth goal of the season, supplying Mason Mount (£7.2m) with his sixth assist of the campaign while substitute Reece James (£5.0m) added his fourth attacking return of 2020/21 by setting up Pulisic’s second.

    which of Bamford and Watkins to sell for Kane?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Watkins

    2. thepancakeman123
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Watkins because Bamford has a good last 5 fixtures

    3. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Watkins

    Low scoring gameweek this. Damage limited for non-WC'ers

    1. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I have still 6 players left, although I have negative ownership on Kane.

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Kane can hurt you, but maybe you've got Nacho or Vardy?

        1. Nanoelektronicar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Nacho, Lingard, Bruno, Son, Holding and Kane left, Coady first sub. Could be decent, could be all blanking with Kane dropping rank.

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Just Iheanacho left to do any damage really

      1. Pompel
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah. I'll be getting him next

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Likewise probs - unless it's Maddison instead. J

          udgement call on which of Bamford or Raph goes here but likely to wait for 33

  3. Nanoelektronicar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Martinez outscores Mendy, James off the bench to outscore Rudiger. Gutted.

  4. pjomara
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Only highlight today was Alonso (c) switches to Kane.
    I guess Alonso's no show brought Dallas in for many others.

  5. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Anyone on here own Mount?

    1. SomeoneKnows
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Yep. Chose him as my one week punt placeholder for Son

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        What if Son blanks again?

        1. SomeoneKnows
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Will consider keeping Mount, however less likely because the EO of Son among Top10K will probably be too high for me to risk

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Only in draft 🙂

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Nope, I do my best to avoid points it seems

    4. Liberate HK - antichinazi
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      me

    5. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Only a few quiet souls, I'm sure.

  6. FPL Kaka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    When is best to use the TC so you reckon now?

    A) Kane this week

    B) Salah vs Leeds

    C) DCL or Digne in the double later on

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I doubt B is a megahaul - A for me

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      A.
      Definitely not C.

    3. thepancakeman123
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Definitely A

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Don't see any attraction in B at all

      Leeds have been solid for a time really - especially at home. Palace in 38 a better call if you're chasing a SGW haul.

  7. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Bought Azpi GW30 scored 0 and 2 so far, disappointing is an understatement

    1. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I swapped Martinez for Mendy last week.

      Same sentiments.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Azpi will go GW33, never had any luck with CHE players in FPL

    2. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Alonso has won him only by 1 pt, which is even more unlucky.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        First Bale and now Azpi, costly wrong picks. Hopefully Jota is a fine one 😆

      2. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        I bought Alonso
        I got 3 and 17 😉

  8. thepancakeman123
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    I've used my wildcard, thoughts on this team would be greatly appreciated!

    Schmeichel
    Arnold - Reguilon - Rudiger - Dawson
    Salah - Fernandes - Mount - Jota - Lingard
    Kane

    Forster - Bamford - Dallas - Welbeck

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I would prefer LEI def than Rudiger

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Which one though? I'm considering Castagne!

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Haven't researched ... need to replace Azpi. Thinking Fofana, not sure he's back fit now and to start ...

      2. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Wouldn't double up on them.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Fair point did not see the GK ...

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Nice, but you'll be wanting Son for his double next week.

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      If no WC left, Mount to Son.

    4. son of city
        2 months, 15 days ago

        rudiger is such a torment.

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          This

    5. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Thoughts on punt on Moura?

      1. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Waste. Of. Time. And. Space.

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Reliant on luck on that ... could be lucky GW who knows

      3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years

    6. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I thought Chelsea were fixture proof defensively, now I am miserable about dropping Martinez.

      1. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Palace had 1 shot on goal - it happens

      2. Duke Silver ☑
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Palace only had 1 shot. Sod's Law.

      3. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Conceding from one shot on goal is not great too. 🙂

      4. GreennRed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        It's done. Regrets won't change anything. Chelsea still well able to get some more CS.

    7. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      My team got 28 with 8 to go including captain. Doing better than when I was actually active.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        This is a game of luck. Extra info over certain threshold(?) has no relevant meaning.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          True - up to a point

          But loads of the recent transfer bandwagons have been driven by fixture changes and not form.

          1. Pep bites Kun
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Referring to Vardy? Salah is an inverse case. Who are your points of reference if you don't mind me asking?

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Not Vardy no - he's hardly bandwagon

              Had the triple Liverpool look in mind mostly this week. The 0.3 for Jota was a bit strong for one game. Salah as template on the back of one goal? Wolves apply here too.

              Likewise in 29 the bulk of transfers there had little to do with form just who was available. Bale case in point. The writing was already on the wall that Mou wasn't happy.

      Evening all!!Who should be my priority for next week folks???
      A- TAA
      Or
      B- Salah
      Advice warmly welcomed!!!! Thankyou

      1. son of city
          2 months, 15 days ago

          B all the time.

        • GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Salah. Leeds will keep Trent busy.

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            This is also in my thoughts too haha, I really cannot decide, if I got Salah in it would block a mini league rival second below me too, but would block me from getting TAA long term and would have Phillips instead

        • Nanoelektronicar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          TAA, Salah won't be that much captained because of Spurs double gameweek. Ideal week to prioritize TAA.

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            This was my exact initial thought mate!!! And Salah comes in for Son the week after!! I’d be getting TAA and Maddison in this week If I waited another week for Salah

        • pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Neither a priority for me next week.

          Would prefer TAA but I'd think carefully about who I was losing. You won't need Mo as a captain and Leeds aren't conceding much at home at all.

          1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Yeah that’s my thoughts too mate around Salah, everyone will captain Kane, I’d be losing Digne for Trent, or Dunk if I think I will save Digne for his double!!

            1. pingissimus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years

              Oh Digne

              Press that button. Think we've been over this one already no?

                Haha we have indeed mate!!! Haha should have got rid weeks ago!! It’s just that nagging extra game he has left and I’ve no WC left, but I’m motivated to part company with him this week!! Haha

      2. TheDragon
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        30 with Kane, Fernandes, Lingard & Iheanacho to go.

        That’s pretty much a guaranteed red arrow right, unless Iheanacho gets double digits?

        1. Eh, just one more thing ...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          43 with the same players left.

            I think yes, Nacho extra large portion required.

              Thanks - I feared as much

              Great score for you - if only my TV was better and I could have afforded TAA over Phillips

                Thanks. That’s pretty much the difference for sure ... just the TAA goal ... gutted my Chelsea CS went ... otherwise I would have been over the moon.

          Minor red at worst

          The big danger I suspect is United defence.

        What I learnt - don't drop defenders playing away to Man City.
        Missed out on Shaw (14) and Dallas (17)

        Thoughts on a risky Son (TC) punt for GW32? If he outscore Kane it would be huge

          I'm done with captain punts. Got carried away after the rush of Trossard. Since then Raph and Sterling have put me firmly back in my box.

        3. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          See how he does tomorrow before I decide if I'll get him for DGW. Has a blank the next GW too. Hasn't been near the levels of early season Son.

        Currently on 8 (-8) from 4, including captain Jota.

        I've really outdone myself this week.

          Still got 7 cretins to go.

          Captain Jota hurt me too ... did not watch the game. How was he today? Will see MOTD later.

            • 4 Years

            Had some half chances, but poor finishing. Dissapointed he came away with nothing.

            Still think he'll bring in decent points over Pool's good fixtures.

            Jota didnt do badly. He also created the golden chance Salah somehow fluffed, so should have had an assist at least. We should also remember that Villa are no joke defensively, so there will be plenty of points to come.

            1. Magic Zico
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 15 days ago

              Yeah, will check MOTD later. With his price and LIV fixtures he's going nowhere unless injured.

      7. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Play Gundo (avl) or Raphinha (LIV)? Obviously will wait for Gundo's min midweek ...

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Raphinha. Pool defence is so dodgy.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

        Pick one for next week:

        A) Gundo to Moura
        B) Raph to Moura
        C) Gundo + Bam to Son + Davis for -4
        D) Raph + Bam to Son + Davis for -4

          Any other forward you could lose instead of Bam in C? I'd want to play him next week and then there's only United before the good run starts.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years

            DCL is the third striker.

        Will shaw play tomorrow? Got Dallas as 2nd sub and as I had Bamford first sub and played 4 defenders. He will come on so i need a shaw no show which is probably 1% chance will happen....... 🙁

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          You need two nó shows from defenders if you played 4 of them and Dallas is second on your bench.

          1. maditass
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Dias didnt play

      10. blauriecon
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        For those who might be laughing at the WCers - w/o wildcarding, I'd have 5 points now and 33 points on the bench with 8 cretins (inc. captain) to go instead of 36 points now and 0 points on the bench with 5 cretins (w/o captain) to go. The unexpected always drives everyone crazy in FF.

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Depends how you play it. I wouldn't pay a bit of heed to anyone laughing at another player for any reason. It's a game.

          1. blauriecon
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Didn't mean the laughter seriously. Just pointing out not many would have predicted Leeds' of Aston Villa's performances.

        Dallas (3rd sub) off the bench 🙂

      12. AzzaroMax99

          Those of us who kept didnt play him. Massively flukey for those who did

      14. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Probably been asked at least 48 times but...chance of a no show for Shaw?

        1. maditass
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          1% chance. Im hoping for a no show aswell

        2. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          It's OGS so small to vanishing chance - better odds that he gets a double digit haul himself

        3. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I think probably quite high sorry. Shaw out of Europa tie next week, he won't want to play telles in 3 games in a row, needs Shaw to play and seemed fairly confident he would. Not sure what the injury is though

      15. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Alonso's now a proper pain in the arse. Sell or keep?

        1. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I think sell. The problem with Alonso is he is such a liability defensively. I'm certain that's why he didnt play today. However chilwell can't play every single game so he may get the odd PL game if chelsea continue in CL further

          I can beat that. 13 from 4 but minus 12 for hits - grand total of 1 point from 4 players.
