De Bruyne and Duffy benched as Man City face Brighton in evening kick-off

Brighton and Hove Albion v Manchester City is the last of six Premier League matches being contested on Saturday.

Kick-off at the Amex is at 17:30 BST.

There are a couple of high-profile benchings on the south coast in the form of Shane Duffy (£4.4m) and Kevin De Bruyne (£12.0m) but no real shocks aside from that, with the other main players from a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) perspective all involved from kick-off.

Solly March‘s (£5.3m) recall and Duffy’s demotion to the bench is the one change that Graham Potter has made from the side that drew at Norwich last weekend, so Yves Bissouma (£4.5m) once again has to content himself with a place among the substitutes.

Pep Guardiola’s two changes from the midweek Champions League win at Club Bruges sees Gabriel Jesus (£8.6m) and Ilkay Gundogan (£7.2m) come in for De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m).

Raheem Sterling (£10.7m) misses out as a precaution.

All three of the Manchester City players who can boast a double-digit ownership, Ruben Dias (£6.2m), Joao Cancelo (£6.3m) and Jack Grealish (£7.9m), start this evening.

Cancelo is by some distance the most-owned City asset in the top 10k, with Phil Foden (£8.0m) a distance second:

          You've got 5 points from him so far.

        Walker and Cancelo booked. Horrible gameweek

        Apart from having Mount, James and Foden I guess

            Not subtle but worth bragging

            1. Cookie Kid
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Livramento and Hwang on the bench too.

              Fuming.

        It's only been 1 day and I've already got 3 flags (Raphinha, Tierney, Marcal).

        Was planning to get rid of the latter 2 anyway... But still annoying.

          Get Zinchenko on. I'll take the 5 points and run from Cancelo.

          1. Meechoo115
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Same

            I feel lucky I got Foden for this GW. Pep might be trolling all of those transferring him in come next week

            1. Camzy
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Nah it's great that he starts this one.

              Benched midweek in the cup and then plays the next PL game.

              For him last week. Going well so far. He’ll definitely play next week as I have him.

            1 month, 10 days ago

            Just come back on. What was the reason people didn’t think Foden scored his second? He flicked the ball in. What’s the debate?

            1. AC/DC AFC
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              In the bag.

              Enjoy your Foden points to make up for ESR.

                1 month, 10 days ago

                Oof. Yeah that was silly from me. Last on the bench makes me question what I’m doing.

                1. AC/DC AFC
                  • 6 Years
                  1 month, 10 days ago

              The one where Jesus shot and it hit Foden was clear as day. It's the Foden's 1st goal that we though was an OG.

                • 8 Years

                Yeah I was sure on the first.
                Just saw quite a few saying it was no way a Foden goal but without them saying why.

              So they’re seriously giving Foden the goal and not an OG?

                • 5 Years

                The goal Foden got the last touch to?

                He did touch it. What are you complaining about ?
