The Scout Network: Should we invest in Manchester City’s players?

On the back of their League Cup victory on Sunday, Manchester City dive straight into a Champions League fixture against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.

After this, they will be in Premier League action against Crystal Palace before the reverse fixture of their two-legged clash with PSG.

This leaves FPL managers with a headache in terms of selecting Manchester City players in their squads.

With what on paper appears to be an easy Premier League fixture sandwiched by the two all-important Champions League matches, could we see Pep rotation at its very best (or worst) this week?

We asked the Scout Network for their views on Manchester City, whether we should look to invest in the champions-elect and which of their assets is surest of starts.

Double Gameweek 26 Scout Picks built on Man City and Everton assets 3

No City players for me at the moment, and in all honesty, I’m comfortable with this decision.

I feel like to tap into any potential haul, you need at least two City players to maximise the chance of getting at least one starter. With the Gameweeks running out, the Citizens still involved in multiple competitions and rotation perhaps likely to affect performances on the pitch, there are too many good options playing for other teams.

Ruben Dias (£6.1m) seems the most sensible hold for me if you have him, as he continues to play almost every game. However, Ilkay Gundogan (£5.8m) has only started three of the last seven matches and João Cancelo (£5.9) has only started four of the last seven. I’d probably be looking to jump ship after the Palace game.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) is having a relatively poor season by his own stratospheric FPL standards and I don’t feel he is justifying his price tag even without the threat of missing games. As always, he has huge potential if you feel he will see decent minutes. You may find that switch is also made easier due to the poor form of Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m).

The likes of Phil Foden (£6.0m) and Ryiad Mahrez (£8.0m) are explosive players, but you would need to decide if you were happy with around a 50% chance of them seeing minutes in a game. It’s just not worth the risk, for me.

I am currently City-less after selling John Stones (£5.1m) in the previous Gameweek due to his suspension. To be honest, with the relative shortage of City clean sheets, I wasn’t convinced on switching like for like.

Given the mass rotation at the Etihad at the moment, it is hard to feel confident investing in many. With other players from teams offering assured game-time and value, there’s an argument to finish the season without any of Guardiola’s troops. I’m still a fan of Ilkay Gundogan (£5.8m) and he remains important to Pep’s game plan, so hopefully, that means less rotation with games depleting.

El Statto

I’m currently without any City assets after saying goodbye to Joao Cancelo (£5.9m) for Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) this week. With City just two wins away from winning the title, I feel their focus will be the Champions League games against PSG in the short term.

With the Crystal Palace match sandwiched between those fixtures, you have to think that the team will be heavily rotated in a game you would still expect them to win. John Stones’ (£5.1m) suspension could still see rotation in the centre-back positions with Nathan Ake (£5.4m) and Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) tussling with Ruben Dias (£6.1m) for the two available positions.

Ederson (£6.1m) is the only safe option if you are wanting a City asset but their clean sheets have dried up recently, too, probably due to the rotation at the back. Anyone else must be picked with caution and with the expectation they could easily not play or could get 20 minutes from the bench.

Fantasy Chat – Kareem

As we enter the crunch time of the season, I expect Pep Guardiola to continue being a rotation nightmare for us FPL managers for the short term at least.

At the moment, I hold no Man City assets and I am not looking to add any before Gameweek 36. The Citizens do have a plum fixture in Gameweek 34 against Crystal Palace but I expect their ever-tinkering head coach to heavily rotate his squad to give his key players a breather after the League Cup final, in between the two rounds of the Champions League semi-final and before the clash with Chelsea in Gameweek 35.

Ruben Dias (£6.1m) is probably the only safe pick at the moment, especially with John Stones (£5.9m) suspended. For attacking players, I’d like to see how things progress with City in the Champions League first before I invest in them. I am quite sure they will return to our radars again before the season ends.

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

Having just played my Wildcard, I have used the opportunity to get rid of all my Manchester City players as a result of Blank Gameweek 33 .

For Gameweek 34, I will be looking get back at least one City asset as they play Palace. My top target is Riyad Mahrez (£8.0m). Firstly, the Algerian is one player who does not often come on as a substitute. This is crucial as he either starts or does not play at all; if the latter happens, your bench can step up. Secondly, his statistics are good when he starts: he has nine goals, six assists and five double-digit hauls.

The current world number one answers your questions

City’s fixtures between now and the end of the season look incredibly appealing. If you can tap into the right players, it looks like you could score an abundance of points. 

However, with the Champions League ties against PSG on the horizon and the Premier League title virtually secure, there will no doubt be plenty of rotation and guessing Pep’s team selection becomes even more difficult than usual. Spending top dollar on a player who might not play is a risk that doesn’t interest us.

There could be value in someone like Phil Foden (£6.0m), although with players like Jesse Lingard (£6.6m) and James Maddison (£7.3m) offering more certainty of starting at similar price points, it looks as though we’ll be braving it without any City options.

City forwards are risky picks because of the aforementioned Pep Roulette and it’s worth noting that often, Man City’s starting XI doesn’t include any orthodox striker. Therefore, I think two players is enough; preferably a midfielder/defender combo. 

One Man City player to keep a close eye on is Phil Foden (£6.0m), with only 7.3% of ownership. The youngster is having the best FPL season of his career (seven goals and eight assists) and has registered 118 points, despite having started only 14 matches.

Man City’s key player is, of course, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m). Having fully recovered to start the Carabao Cup final, De Bruyne could be a great differential until the end of the season. The Belgian is always a reliable pick when fit and he’s a straight swap from highly-owned asset Bruno Fernandes (£11.6m). The differences in ownership between these two players (56.8% for Fernandes v 14.4% for De Bruyne) is massive, so this differential could help secure your mini-leagues over the next five Gameweeks.

    Digne Dunk Dallas
    Salah Fernandes Lingard Moura
    Kane(c) Iheanacho Watkins

    Areola Shaw Jota Burn
    1ft 0.5m

    tempted by Fernandes to Son, but gut says rolling FT and having 2FT for a potential double is more valuable than potential Son points?

    1. Guba
      • 5 Years

      Wouldn’t want to get rid of Bruno personally ahead of an expected dgw.

      1. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        yeah, just feels like a similar situation to Salah earlier in the season where many of us held on for too long.

  2. Indpush

    Who to start our of Lloris and Mendy?

    Will start James and Azpli

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Lloris and spread the risk

      1. Indpush
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        He was my first choice but was wavering. Thank you for your input. Helps me stay with him.

    2. Guba

      Mendy

      I'd start Lloris.

        Thanks

  3. HD7

    Any chance Forster is number 1 or Mccarthy is back in the starting place?

    1. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I guess there is always a chance. No one here could really know though.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yes, at this point nothing is certain there. One bad performance and the other one has his turn.

  4. Holmes
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Has Leeds shown improvement in defending set-piece?

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Think the last one was back in 29 to Fulham

      The other half to that equation I suppose is what sort of threat the teams they have played since then pose at set pieces. City probably the best I imagine.

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yeah, not many goals have been conceded recently and majority of those teams dont rely on set-piece either. Was wondering if Dunk could be a good pick for this week or not.

  5. Ohh1454
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Thoughts on Dias > Dallas ? Will FH 35 so not worried about the DGW with him

  6. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 29 days ago

    Pope (Johnstone)
    Cancelo Lowton Rudiger
    Son Bruno Lingard Jota
    Nacho Kane Vardy

    Johnstone - AWB - Lowton - ESR

    1 FT and 1.5 itb

    any suggested transfers? Can't save the FT as I will play FH in 35. Thanks

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I’d probably ship a Lowton lol

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I need to free up some cash as well. So want to move out Cancelo or AWB

        1. Lindelol
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Plus United will blank in 36 so I guess I need to move him out for Dallas probably

  7. Baines on Toast...
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Nacho captain this week? It's Leicester v Soton, he's red hot, Spurs have Sheffield United but can't be sure Kane is fit.

    1. Ohh1454
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Hard to go against Kane but nacho a good alternative

    2. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I have vardy and Nacho but I feel Southampton always play very competitive against Leicester after that famous 9-0.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        They still can't defend though.

    3. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Worth considering tbh. Difficult to see him blank, but naturally one day he will.

    4. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Kane has been threatening hat tricks for a while, can see him getting a couple in the run in, this looks as good a game as any.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        He didn't look match fit last time he played, so there has to be extra risk for him to blank this week. Yet, if he is fit and in form, you are correct. But there is that IF.

        1. No Professionals
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          yes there is that, looked like he was struggling v city. but again, it is a hard game to judge.

          1. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Fair point. Could be that this deters people from what would normally be a locked-in captaincy and helps gain ground. Or could backfire.

    5. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      Kane will be playing for golden boot

    6. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 29 days ago

      You’ve probably kept Kane hoping that he is fit for the SHU match in order to captain him......I know I’ve done the same. Nearly impossible to take the armband from him if he’s declared fit.....

    Hi Everyone

    Did not watch the Leicester game last night how did Maddy play?

    I have now heard he is not on set pieces now? I brought him in a few weeks back but he has not really done much.

    Time to get rid do you think? I also have Jota to think about in my team.

    Thanks

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years

      He wasn't great. Looked off the pace and they were better when he came off.

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Thanks, do you think its a good idea to get rid? Not sure who to bring in to be honest! Below is current team:

        Mendy

        Shaw | TAA | Rudiger

        Son | Maddison | Jota | Salah | Lingard

        Iheanacho | Kane

        Forster | Vydra | Veltman | Holding

        Thanks

      He looked better against West Brom, struggled to get into the game last night. He's no longer taking corners, but was on free-kicks. I'm prob keeping for Southampton, will then reassess.

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 29 days ago

        Yeah, might do the same, who to bring in for him is the question I don't think Raph will be fit anytime soon.

          Yeah, Maddison > Raphinha is on my mind too, but I'll do it in 36 I think.

    How bold is it to go without Kane this gameweek?
    Please help

    1. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      depends if he is fully fit or not. Fully fit? I wouldn't fancy it.

    2. Corgzzzz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bold would not be the word I would choose..........

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 29 days ago

      I assume you have Son.

      One hope may be that there is a very high coincidence of Son and Kane hauls. If Kane hauls then you have a good prospect of Son doing the same. The problem is though that Kane will almost certainly be a 50% captain choice and he's a really good prospect this week.

      Really comes down to the combination of players you have though. No one is ever essential. Greenwood Nacho Vardy Son with the right captain choice for instance could still easily come out level or ahead even if captain Kane hauls massively.

  13. Fantasy123456

      Is this team okay for this week, any pressing transfers needed?
      Mendy
      TAA, Coady, Rudiger
      Salah, Fernandez, Jota, Son, Moura
      Kane (c) Nacho

      Forster, Holding, Burn, Davis

      1ft and 0.0 in the bank?

      1. gonzalocampos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 29 days ago

        I would play Holding instead of Coady.

        1. Fantasy123456
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I can’t make my mind up on them two. Been swapping and changing them.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Looks good to me.

          Jota must be dicey for a start but will come on undoubtedly at some point and he has a handy record off the bench and a very high upside.

          Distinct benefit of having 2 FTs going into 35/36.

          1. Fantasy123456
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Yeah that’s what I’m thinking, wanting those 2FT for next week.

        3. No Professionals

          1 month, 29 days ago

          Bench boost is a rubbish chip isn't it. Really difficult to get right (I wouldn't have considered it in any of the weeks where my bench actually scored well). I think it's probably worth 10-15 points, got to question if it is worth just ignoring it as you'll lose more points than that by trying to work towards a bench boost in all likelihood.

          Probably join the GW1 BBers next season.

            Certainly a difficult year for bench boost....I wasted mine when late injuries and unexpected rotations left me with eight field players.

            Has worked in the past.

            BB is a real pain, to use it successfully you need to tie up funds on the bench which could be used elsewhere. I tried BB in GW1 of Virtual FPL earlier this year, it didn't work but I'm still tempted to give it a go for real.

          4. Mr. O'Connell
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Only got 12 starters on my BB and bench boosted Dawson for -3. Will 100% be using it GW1 next season.

          5. pingissimus

            Pretty medium chip for sure

            Won't be GW1 for me next time if only because of limited budget for bench. My view is this: BB to WC makes more sense than the traditional WC to BB. That way you don't screw your squad going forward by concentrating on having 15 for one week and then a bench you don't really want.

            Actually fairly down on all chips. WC is a strong one of course but that works both ways. This season it has cost me massively - as it did last time out. Thinking that I may just play it next time to avoid a minus 8 somewhere rather than rejig my whole squad.

          • 7 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          No City players here and injuries permitting I think I'm good to save FT.

          Martinez
          Rudiger, Castagne, Veltman
          Son, Bruno, Salah, Lingard
          Kane, Iheanacho, Bamford

          McCarthy, Saka, Shaw, Philips

          0.7m ITB, 1FT

          Only on doubt is start

          A) Shaw (v LIV)
          B) Veltman (v LEE)

            Yep looks good, I'd probably start Shaw

          2. gonzalocampos
            • 6 Years

            Play Shaw instead of Veltman.

          From 1,325,745 in GW18 to 64,509 now! 2 FTs, 2.3 ITB. FH left for DGW.

          I have too many Liverpool and Man United players... probably get rid of Jota and Fernandes for Son and Mahrez (or another - any thoughts)?

          Mendy / Forster
          TAA / Coady / Rudiger / Holding / Lowton
          Jota / Greenwood / Fernandes / Lingard / Salah
          Kane / Iheanacho / Davis

            I'd hold fire until you know what the DGW situation looks like.

          2.5 itb, Vardy to Kane for free and cpt?

          Meslier
          TAA Digne Dallas
          Salah Bruno Son Jota Raph
          Vardy Nacho

          Areola Coufal Lowton Brewster

          You’re given the final score for the United Pool match.....it’s 3-3.......do you start Shaw over Jota?

          Is dgw 35 the best remaining week of this season for FH, if able to field 11 in bgw 36?

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Team dependent. I own a fair amount from the four teams who blank in 36 so I'll be using FH in 36.

            Yeah, that's what I'm planning to do.

        10. Mr. O'Connell
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          FH 36 looking very tasty (should Crellins prophecy transpire)

          Spurs home to Wolves
          City away at Toon (Aguerooo)
          Pool away at West Brom
          Everton home to Sheff U

          While United, Leicester and Chelsea all blank.

          Buying a ticket for Pep Roulette on free hit is always fun.

            Yeah, was weighing up FH in GW33 vs BGW36, and regretfully chose to play it with limited success in GW33 due to fear of missing out on TAA + Jota hauls. BGW36 should offer an excellent opportunity to get in differentials to propel you up the ranks.

            Yes, I hope he is right and that they announce the changes before this gameweeks deadline xd

          Pereira Leics to who?

          Shaw, Trent, Rüdiger & Veltman are my defence.

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            EVE or Castagne

          2. Igz08
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            I’m thinking he might be worth keeping given the upcoming fixture and Thomas coming off (tactical) on the 70th. But am debating a change to Castagne too

        13. Igz08
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 29 days ago

          Is Ricardo Pereira worth transferring out?

          Given that Leicester are playing on Friday, I feel he’s a good chance of starting

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Fingers crossed we'll get the lineups early on Friday.

            If we do, it makes the decision easier.

            1. Igz08
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Hoping so too! Probably straight swap to Castagne if Ricky doesn’t start

              Not gonna get any hints from the clubs and their social medias this GW.

                Eh?

                  • 5 Years
                  1 month, 29 days ago

                  Like expected lineups, players warming up, shirts in the dressing room etc.
                  Are all the clubs not boycutting social media to fight racism this upc. GW?

                  1. avfc82

                    1 month, 29 days ago

                    Aah, I see what you mean.

                    There is a guy on Twitter who usually posts the team earlier in the day, who I trust, so will keep an eye out for that. If there is no news, I'll prob sell.

                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      clubs websites will have the updates

                      1 month, 29 days ago

                      Ye okay. Ofc guys like Rockstar and others don't have to take part in the boycott.
                      Would be cool if they did though.

                      1. avfc82

                        1 month, 29 days ago

                        The boycott starts 3pm Friday, I believe. We've had the Leicester XI well before that time last couple of matches, so fingers crossed.

          Taa shaw rudiger (coady, mitchell)
          Salah jota bruno son lingard
          Kane iheanacho (davis)

          I feel getting Wood now is points chasing imo

          So Lacazette to Bamford or DCL?

          Have Ihenacho and Kane.

            You'll have missed the big one but the form is actually very steady. Same number of returns as Nacho since 27.

            Burnley have been very unBurnley in recent times - especially away from home.

          What was the non news about Grealish last week?

          Don't have a spot for him but trying to weigh up what I think about the two Villa Everton fixtures. Villa defence sees to have been as badly affected by no Grealish as their attack.

          This week will depend on whether the Utd-Liverpool game is a 0-0 dull affair or whether it’s a goal fest like the cup. Many points will be left on benches

          1. Baines on Toast...
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 29 days ago

            Forgot about the cup game. Suppose Liverpool need to go for it whereas United can afford to counter.

            Yeah, I’m starting TAA and Shaw to hedge my bets....benching Jota

            1. Baines on Toast...
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 29 days ago

              Jota surely the most dangerous to bench though - highest ceiling.

                • 1 Year
                1 month, 29 days ago

                I reckon Shaw’s ceiling is not too far off......he scored 17 points against Man City
