Who are the best Man City FPL attackers for their Gameweek 8 fixture swing?

Manchester City have had an encouraging start to their 2021/22 campaign, despite a tough run of fixtures which has seen them visit Liverpool, Chelsea, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

During their opening seven Premier League matches, they have netted 14 goals, and given their forthcoming schedule (see below), it’s easy to see why many Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers are scouting their assets ahead of Gameweek 8.

With Etihad encounters against Burnley and Crystal Palace in the next three, plus a trip to high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion – a side who they have traditionally done well against under Pep Guardiola – the upside is clearly huge.

However, nailing down a regular starting attacker isn’t straightforward. Looking at City’s two most recent Premier League matches against Liverpool and Chelsea, their ‘strongest’ XI probably looks something like this:

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Rodri, Bernardo, De Bruyne; Jesus, Grealish, Foden

That will of course change as the season progresses, and we have seen before just how quickly the landscape can change. Only a few weeks ago, Ferran Torres (£6.9m) was of huge Fantasy interest but has now failed to feature since Gameweek 4, while Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) – a popular pre-season pick – hasn’t started a single Premier League match since the opening day.

It’s also worth noting that for their forthcoming run of fixtures, Guardiola will probably look to use his full squad, and perhaps be less reliant on that ‘strongest’ XI.

The rotation is further complicated by two important UEFA Champions League clashes against Club Brugge, which have taken on extra significance following defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in Matchday 2. The first fixture, which takes place in Belgium, arrives just three days after Burnley, while the return match is four days after Crystal Palace’s visit in Gameweek 10. 

There is also an EFL Cup trip to West Ham United to navigate after that latter match, but given that fringe players will surely be given a run-out here, if anything, it’s probably a positive for FPL managers.

Regardless of that, the schedule does suggest some rotation, which is why we have some big decisions to make ahead of Gameweek 8. So, before we give a player-by-player assessment of the main contenders, it goes without saying that if you do choose to invest, additional squad depth is definitely advisable.

          I tend to agree.

        should i transfer out grealish for foden or no

              just as a transfer this week if not i would just keep it

            Just keep Grealish. You must have a bigger concern than switching one City mid to another.

          The above article on Citeh players does seem to reach any decisive conclusion. May as well stick with one of their Ds.

            Still think KDB is the one if you can afford

              A lot of money for an underperforming player.

                hes just come back from injury, hes not "underperformed" yet. It is a lot of money for someone you won't captain though, that i do agree.

                but if taa is out, i think i might use the cash to upgrade son to kdb

                  haha snap, I've just posted my team below, got KdB(C) in myself...under 2%!

                  As things stand, and even potentially, isn't Son a better asset than KDB tho?

                  1. jia you (The No BS League -…
                    • 5 Years
                    8 days, 17 hours ago

                    worth the gamble for the next three imo and he's an easy downgrade to Son

        3. jia you (The No BS League -…
          • 5 Years
          8 days, 19 hours ago

          Hopeful for a much better GW than the last one and Salah is due a blank, right?

            Salah with the early kick off so you never know, might frustrate his captainers (and there will be many)

            1. jia you (The No BS League -…
              • 5 Years
              8 days, 17 hours ago

              could do with a bit of luck and a Salah blank!

              Nice team, I think I’m going for a cancelo captain this week, but might only have five starters! It’s going to be touch and go whether I beat last weeks massive total of 24

              1. jia you (The No BS League -…
                • 5 Years
                8 days, 17 hours ago

                haha yes the No BS league had an absolute stinker of a GW...hopefully better this GW...GL mate

                No no no.

                  • 4 Years
                  8 days, 19 hours ago

                  somehow I don't think that will be correct.

                  1. RogDog_jimmy
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    8 days, 19 hours ago

                    It’s my guess! I know nothing!

                    I do hope they play, I have all three.

                    1. Gabbiadini
                      • 4 Years
                      8 days, 19 hours ago

                      Well it is probably best not to comment then if you are giving feedback on the basis of "nothing"

                      1. Holmes
                        • 8 Years
                        8 days, 19 hours ago

                        Well, any projection on this question will be based on "nothing" since nobody actually knows the seriousness of these injuries.

                        1. Gabbiadini
                          • 4 Years
                          8 days, 19 hours ago

                          not exactly, the injuries have been documented albeit very minor.

                          1. Holmes
                            • 8 Years
                            8 days, 19 hours ago

                            Then they should start?

                            1. Gabbiadini
                              • 4 Years
                              8 days, 19 hours ago

                              No, because there is such thing as a precaution, especially with an able squad.

                              1. Holmes
                                • 8 Years
                                8 days, 18 hours ago

                                And none of us are aware if the coach will take precaution or not...

                                Predicting lineups is just waste of time, especially when it comes to Pep and Tuchel.

                                1. Gabbiadini
                                  • 4 Years
                                  8 days, 18 hours ago

                                  Simply disagree.
                                  Predicting lineups is part of the art, based on from/fitness/game time in nailing selections.

                                  Different taste I guess! I dont see any point in doing that and its just loss of energy for me.

                                  Let press conference do the job, if its still 50-50, move on to some other player. IF you have a backup, use him, if not, upgrade bench etc. Dont want to complicate things.

                        Lol.

                        I give plenty of reasonable advice and opinions based on knowledge I have to all sorts of people on here.

                        I think no, no, no based on what I know - which is the same as everyone else, which is very little. I certainly know nothing more than anyone else.

                        1. Gabbiadini
                          • 4 Years
                          8 days, 18 hours ago

                          Well, it seems clear that there was a misinterpretation.
                          Knowing the situation but having little to no information is different to not knowing the situation at all and making a guess.

              2. Thomas Magnum
                • 6 Years
                8 days, 19 hours ago

                Yes, No to starting, yes to minutes off the bench (but that's depending on how many minutes he plays for Brazil) 50/50 but leaning no because he's due a rest anyways

                1. Gabbiadini
                  • 4 Years
                  8 days, 19 hours ago

                  Yes, I could see Raphinha being a cameo also, although part of me thinks that if he is capable enough to be a substitute Bielsea will start him even if it is only for 60 minutes like we saw against Newcastle and West Ham.

                  What about Rüdiger?

                  1. Thomas Magnum
                    • 6 Years
                    8 days, 19 hours ago

                    Yeah I

                    1. Thomas Magnum
                      • 6 Years
                      8 days, 19 hours ago

                      ... agree, I can't really see him being an unused sub at all so whether it be 30 or 60 minutes I think we'll see him on the field as Leeds need a win. And sorry didn't word the response very well, I think Rudiger is a 50/50 just because he won't be coming off the bench, and depending how bad the injury is I can see him being rested just because he has played lots of minutes anyways so far

                      1. Gabbiadini
                        • 4 Years
                        8 days, 19 hours ago

                        yes, I agree.
                        The one with the most risk of not playing at all being Rüdiger.

                        1. Gabbiadini
                          • 4 Years
                          8 days, 19 hours ago

                          However, Brentford positioned 7th on the table and an away fixture maybe Tuchel doesn't take this luxury and rests what many believe to be his best centre-back.

                Yes

                Yes

              Hi all,
              Which to double up defence on - city or chelsea?
              Have rudiger and cancello - can afford laporte or christenson / james / chilwell

              Thoughts please?

              1. Herogrows
                  8 days, 18 hours ago

                  City, you may need Chelsea spots for attackers, city too unpredictable up top

                  • 8 Years

                  Prefer City for no genuine reasons.

                  I've gone Chelsea for reasons of value.

                Why everyone so keen on Son?
                Fixtures are not that great & Spurs are hit&miss kind of team this season so far.... from GW12 he could be a better pick.

                  Agree I am looking at him in a few weeks. Think there are some good 6-8m value options in midfield next few weeks

                  8 days, 17 hours ago

                  I fancy him to do well in all his next fixtures.

                    Too expensive in a Nuno team for me

                      He's about 2m cheaper than Bruno and Mane, and he's outscored both of them so far despite being in a Nuno team...

                              But then again Benrahma , Townsend and dacoure are out scoring all of them!

                            No reason to compare him to Bruno and Mane though. Most players will look good value in comparison to them

                          Not this week, maybe after the saints match, Fidel could easily be rested next GW

                        Which Man City mids to consider on WC?

                        A. Torres as City plays with a no.9 against lesser opponents
                        B. Foden explosive but rotation risk.

                          I personally dont like any, Foden is flavor of the week.

                          Would rather punt on Mount.

                            The only ones I would go near are kdb but too expensive or Grealish , like above though I’d prefer mount

                            As a Torres owner who is soon getting rid, I would steer well clear of all of them.

                              Wise words but the pilgrims want their shiny idols. I try to steer them back to the true path, but it is weary work. I may need help. Arise, Sir Nomar!

                          Have Toney since GW1. PLan to ditch him at WC, but now everyone bring him in at WC. Did i miss something..?

                          1. Kane5

                            I think its the draw Brentford have from GW10 onwards. Also probably the best option around that price. I got rid of him a few weeks back but thinking of bringing him back as well

                            Fixtures and as a team, they are playing well.

                            Fixtures turning soon, keep.

                            Keep, many on WC looking at him as a good value option. Fixtures looking good from 9.

                          2/3 week punt before probably moving to Toney

                          A - Armstrong
                          B - Hwang

                            A, probably on pens in JWPs absence too

                            Armstrong, my only concern would be the injury to Che Adams though, he is a big part of Ralph's system

                          Is KDB no longer on penalties for ManC? I have Fernandes in my team and thinking about changing him to KDB but if he is off penalties I should probably keep Fernandes.

                            Mahrez is probably on penalties but he is not getting gametime at the moment.

                            perhaps I'm biased but think there's a very good chance that KdB is on pens

                          Just woke up from a nightmare where I was on a WC and two keys players were flagged while two others were doubts for the weekend.

                            Hardly a nightmare situation on a WC though...

                              Want both Lukaku and Rudiger, and don't want to waste transfers to bring them in next week. Same for Raphinha and Jimenez.

                              On a WC, yes, but will need to waste transfers to bring them in next week if I don't on the WC as I really want both Lukaku and Rudiger. Same for Raphinha and Jimenez

                          Morning dzz, planning to punt on Foden on WC but struggling to plan a route for foden >> Son by gw12

                          Ramsdale
                          Taa cancelo Rudiger xxx -- liv
                          Salah raph foden xxx -- Brownhill
                          Kaku Antonio toney

                          A: Duffy + Saka + 0.6m. Play 343 and shift out saka/foden/Antonio in gw11 for son + xxx

                          B: Chilwell + Mbeumbo + 0m. Play hybrid formations. Chilwell has high upside and I will have decent bench cover but Could mean starting double Brentford attack vs Chelsea this week. Take out chilwell/foden/Antonio in gw11 for son

                            Not sure about the Son plan part of it but I like option B over option A. Comfortably.

                          Jota injury is just so frustrating. Even the slight doubt means i’d be surprised to see him start with Firmino fit and ready. May just have to sell. Jota, King, Traore all 3 fires to put out.

                              Only considering a -4, i worded it wrong. Thinking Jota King > Foden Hwang -4

                          Have been planning Semedo to Dias for nearly 2 weeks
                          2ft 2.8itb
                          Any other obvious moves this week?
                          Looking at Sarr to Raphinha next week so not against rolling the other transfer
                          Gives me another week to consider Mbuemo v Toney

                            Semedo to Dias sounds perfect

                            Why not Cancelo? Obviously depends on team news from press conferences.

                              I couldn’t give you a proper reason. Just a bias towards Dias from owning him last season. Already own James so wanted nailed. Does seem like Cancelo plays most games. Toss a coin

                          With Trincao out due to Covid do you see Traore as a starter against Villa?

                            having the same thought, really don't know.
                            Podence might start?

                            Id say more likely than Pod.

                            I hope so.... I have Traore... And a few potential injuries

                            Would be tremendous. Didn’t know Trincao had covid, could mean holding Traore one week longer hoping he plays.

                            I don’t think any, sometimes I listen to planet fpl q and a which is good for football but not really for fpl

                            Wire on a Tuesday, then black box on a Wednesday or Thursday

                            Try to just keep it to those, anymore is overkill for me

                              Yeah I have to agree Spuds. I only pay attention to Wire and BB. Dont want to overload and they seem to have the best balance from what I’ve seen so far.

                            above average fpl is good and released early in the week

                            A or B, leaning towards A.

                              High risk/reward. If not on a WC surely best to wait til after the England game though, injury would be a nightmare.

                                Would definitely wait until after pressers. I didn't think moving before Friday evening was an option lol. Thinking about it now, I won't be surprised if Torres comes in for the next few with the easier fixtures. Seems like pep likes the false nine of foden/kdb etc against tougher opponents. But it's pep, so that rotation risk will always be there, especially with the ucl games too. So i agree with you, depends on your risk appetite.

                          Morning

                          Any Palace fans here? What are your thoughts on Gallagher? His stats seem good.

                          But with Milivojevic back does this eat into Gallagher's threat?

                          Thanks

                            Milivojevic NEVER passed to Gallagher when I was watching the game, check pass map later and it's true

                              Will do, not sure if I should bring him in or perhaps Saka?

                                Prefer EMR to Saka.

                            Gallagher is still an option but his stock is falling with me

                            Every chance Eze will be starting by GW12 and that will likely push him back and it's really the start of the Palace fixture run. He's likely lost set pieces but rationally Palace have had a terrible set piece record for yonks and that's one area Vieira had had little effect so far. I imagine Olise and Eze will dominate those not Mili.

                          Hastily took out hwang on WC after he had risen 0.1 and and now want him back ffs. 0.1 short of this team :(. Suggestions on how to extract 0.1 from this?

                          Ramsdale -- Foster
                          TAA Cancelo Chilwell -- Duffy Liv
                          Salah Raph Son Mbeumbo -- Brownhill
                          Kaku Antonio Hwang

                          Only option I see if Chilwell >> James if James is declared fit somehow

                              Raph, TAA, Jota doubts. I think if Jota is 100% confirmed out he’s worth moving on.

                                I think so 2, I’d like mbeumo but it’s hardly ideal with double Chelsea defence potentially this week

                            The two final decisions in my mind that I'm overthinking, and may need some guidance on, are:

                            A) Lukaku is definitely worth it as the Chelsea attacker of choice, right? Even at his price point? For me, the forward spot is the only one to play with, so it's Lukaku or... Werner...

                            B) Antonio - is he worth keeping with his fixture run and Europa? I've built up value in him and he looks decent - he's worth keeping over Jimenez or DCL (when fit)... right?

                            Thanks! Losing the wood for the trees at the moment.

                              In a similar place with Antonio. But can't see many better options so I may end up holding! Plus his ownership is high, so can you take the pain if he scores and you don't have him?

                                Very true, it seems like high risk, not so high reward, which doesn't make sense to change.

                                Thank you!

                              Lukaku worth keeping for the next 2 at least, reassess if can't score vs NOR
                              Antonio given his 45% ownership is a real differential if you go without and he has a few blanks in a row. On the flip side if he hauls in the tougher fixtures you'll cop it - what's your risk appetite like?

                                Great points, thank you. Think I needed this as reassurance!

                              Lukaku is worth it for me, just been unluckly last few games with hitting the post etc. I'm not considering Werner. I'm keeping antonio while he's fit until I see a down turn in performance (not necessarily output).

                                You're right, if he had another goal to his name rather than the post then he'd feel a no-brainer. I'll stick with him, thank you!

                            I think my WC comes down to prioritising TAA or keeping Lukaku.

                            With the former is frees up some cash to spend elsewhere too, like upgrading Hwang to Toney.

                            But Lukaku has 4 amazing fixtures.

                            Currently have the below

                            Ramsdale Foster
                            Azpilicueta Cancelo Dias Rudiger Livramento
                            Salah Son Raphinha Mbuemo Luiz
                            Lukaku Antonio Hwang

                            Help!

                              I don't fancy the che city double up.
                              Can I suggest going Virgil and keeping 1m itb that way you get their cs with potential for attacking returns whilst others sit on Trent (if he's missing).
                              If Trent is fit, I wouldn't not own him.
                              From the team above you're perma 4 atb and even may be tempted to play Livra given his upcoming fixtures, which means benching one of Mbuemo Hwang every week

                                I'd agree with this. VVD is bound to get a 15 pointer sooner or later with a CS and headed goal. Personally think TAA is more of a priority than Son.

                                TAA + Foden = Son + 5.5.

                            My current setup is like this:
                            Salah Jota Sarr Gray
                            Lukaku Antonio Armstrong

                            If Jota is out (probably on the bench at the very least) who would you replace him with for the next run of games
                            Looking at Sarr to Raphinha next week

                            Can afford Jota to Son but that won't be the case if I move Semedo to Dias/Cancelo (have 2ft 2.8m itb)

                              Foden perhaps? Any particular reason why people think Jota is likely to miss out on a starting spot?

                                Firmino not playing for Brazil so fresh
                                Jota missed last couple of sessions with Portugal and either has been or might be sent home early to Liverpool.
                                At least we should find out in advance given they’re the early kickoff

                                  Thanks. I automatically switch off during the international break - Could be a bit of a headache if TAA also misses out.
