Southampton v Man City team news: Dias returns in Guardiola’s only change

The final Premier League match of the day sees Southampton play host to Manchester City.

Kick-off at the St Mary’s Stadium is at 17:30 GMT.

Pep Guardiola has kept his tinkering to a minimum for the Saturday night match, with Ruben Dias replacing John Stones in his one and only change from the side that defeated Chelsea last weekend.

Ralph Hasenhuttl make three alterations following Southampton’s defeat at Wolves, with Kyle Walker-Peters, Stuart Armstong and Che Adams coming into the side.

Lyanco, Nathan Tella and Ibrahima Diallo make way for the hosts as the Saints’ head coach seemingly returns to his trusty 4-2-2-2 set-up after a dalliance with a wing-back system in recent weeks.

Most of the interest from a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) perspective focuses on City assets, unsurprisingly, with the ownership figures within the top 10k (taken from LiveFPL) listed below:

Armando Broja is owned by not far off 8% of managers in the top 10k but 95% of those bosses have benched him this week.

        Iv had a horror show since December, 34k to 360k.

        Back to 280k after today so am happy tonight. This game is so tough and depressing sometimes in all honestly that a good wk feels great when it happens.

          It's not tough, it's complete luck. More so over the past few weeks than ever.

            FPL is harder then ever, spoon feeding, hacking, covid.

    There's something intrinsiclly honest about Southampton and Wolves.
    There's something that permanetly stinks about Watford.
    Life lesson from the peeps that hunt sheep.

        Broja and Ward Prowse are mint, but the unsung fighters protecting the defence in both teams are the folk I want to be in the trenches with.
        These players from these teams are fixture proof.
        Absolute class pro's.

    Robbo is such a big differential, mad. He is going to punish

    1. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Hopefully just Trent and Robbo to go

        That could be 23+ points

  5. AzzaroMax99

    Rest for Alonso would save my week. Dalot 1st on the bench ofc.

    22(-4) with Alonso, Taa and Jota to go. Awful week :/

    Anyone facing logging into FPL via the website?

    I've received over 15-20 mails saying password reset when I haven't even requested it.

    I've changed the password but I'm not able to login into the website. App worked fine, but app isn't allowing me to change my email.

    Someone please help.

      I've seen a fair few mentions of this happening to people tonight across various social medias. Seems to be a pretty widespread attack.

      Make sure your password is strong and unique, then report the issue to FPL - not sure there's much else you can do unfortunately. Fingers crossed it's nothing too sinister for you

      Match ended hours ago but wanted to wait to post. On the Villa/Everton broadcast here in the States, Jon Champion, in not so many words, blamed Villa’s goal celebration for the bottles thrown at them from the Everton crowd. Basically said they were asking for it by celebrating in front of opposing fans. Is it too much to ask people in the crowd to not act like animals?

      What say y’all?

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 26 days ago

        They can celebrate however they want..

        1. NorCal Villan
            3 months, 26 days ago

            And wherever they want

          No excuses for crowd behaving like that.

          But no need to antagonise fans either.

          1. NorCal Villan
              3 months, 26 days ago

              How is that “antagonizing”? And even if it was explicit antagonizing players shouldn’t be pelted with bottles, etc. Total BS behavior

                • 7 Years
                3 months, 26 days ago

                Agree 100%

                Celebrating in front of your fans is less likely to cause trouble than going in front of opposition fans. Repeat still absolutely no excuse for them reacting in that way.

                  It’s pretty close to “what did she expect, dressing like that? She should know that lads are gonna be lads.”

              No excuse for throwing a bottle a them, none. He was found and may be charged as well as a likely lifetime ban from attending matches and deserves it too

              No excuse for that behaviour.

              One day a player is going to get seriously hurt by a projectile being hurled at them from distance, especially coin. People doing that are cowards.

            Nice set of fixtures for Villa.
            Who's best mid to get?
            - Coutinho
            - Ramsey
            - Buendia

            Evening all!! Those with DCL and Gray, what’s your plans ????

            1. Nomar
              • 12 Years

              Probably the same ams as those with CR7 and Dennis.........

                If I had them (I don’t) it would be cigarette and blindfold

                3 months, 26 days ago

                I've got Gray... He is my 5th mid. Prob move him to Ramsey to be honest. Free up some cash.

                Or if I sell Ronaldo, might up him and play 3-5-2 with King moving to the bench.

                  Thankyou for your input everyone !! My thoughts are to get rid, and can do DCL and Gray to Salah and Idah so think that’s the move il make

                    *actually I can do Gray and DCL to Salah and Broja!! Even better!!!

                3 months, 26 days ago

                have both, trying to figure out best route to do gray to salah...keeping dcl for the next couple, not many options around and fixtures not too bad(I would say good fixtures but the way Everton are playing the worst teams are simply not too bad)

              3 months, 26 days ago

              What are people doing with Ronaldo?

              Somewhat "favourable" fixtures coming up with bur SOU lee WAT however it has been really painful owning him.

              Anyone holding for the next four or have you had enough?

                Selling. My biggest mistake of the season.

                    The spurs arsenal postponement made me go for Ronaldo over kane. Not sure either is a great pick in truth, but was a real panic move.

                  3 months, 26 days ago

                  Yeah as much as the fixtures are nice... At this point it's doing more damage than good with that much cash tied up in him

                • 3 Years
                3 months, 26 days ago

                Probably selling for Salah with my 2FT, but a case of wait and see on that front

                • 6 Years

              Can anyone see an Odegaard, Smith Rowe super haul? Got 6 players left but these two are my last chance

                What counts as a super haul this week? 3 points each?

                  • 1 Year
                  3 months, 26 days ago

                  10 each is what I’m after.

                    I mean it's possible.

                    Will be interesting to see how burnley defence looks after so few games lately.

                    1. NorCal Villan
                        3 months, 26 days ago

                        10 each. Possible, of course. Will it actually happen? Don’t see it

                          1 goal each and cs. It's a stretch.

                How did Broja look today?

                  3 months, 26 days ago

                  Lively. Unlucky to have a goal disallowed for offside then hit the bar in the second half. He’s going to score some goals this season

                  Very good, wish I'd never bother getting rid of Dennis for him but will be looking to do the reverse again in next few.

                      More a Sopranos fan 🙂

                      I did try and see a St Pauli game once but it was sold out, atmosphere was great even outside the stadium though.

                  With Lamptey, Alonso, Keane, King, Dennis, Antonio, no Salah, no City mid, only one city def and only one Pool defender in TAA

                  It's time to WC I think.

                  Thoughts?

                        Depends on current team and dgw announcements for me.

                        I'd wait for now.

                        Is it too much to ask for one of Tierney/TAA to no show so that I get my Dalot 9 pointer?

                        I'm watching the NFL and it is quite enjoyable but a bit slow. Does anyone else watch?

                          watched once and they had meetings for 30 mins every 5 mins of play so i decided I would never watch it again

                            Haha yeah all these time outs after each play is annoying. I've never really watched before so I'm going to roll with it

                          Even for me, as an American, the only thing that tops the NFL for boredom is Baseball. College football, on the other hand, is much more exciting in my opinion.

                            Agree with you regarding Baseball. I tried to get into it last year as BT sport show a lot of the games here in the UK but I found it really slow! Basketball and Ice Hockey on the other hand, really fast paced and good to watch!

                            Went to a baseball game in Oakland... Took ages to finish.

                                Been to tons of games in Oakland. Wife is an A’s fan, me Giants (I like A’s as long as they aren’t playing Giants). Last season was a great season for Bay Area baseball

                                Huge baseball fan, but I get what people don’t like about it. They same can be said for proper football

                                Cool thing was it was July 4th and we were allowed to run to the pitch and watch fireworks after the game ended.

                                Nope, turned my back on NFL over 7 years ago (nothing to do with politics- had been bored with game for many years and find most NFL fans here to be insufferable). However, I live in the hometown of Aaron Rodgers. Before Rodgers went pro it was mostly Niner fans with a solid minority of Raider fans. When Rodgers went to GB a huge chunk of town went green & gold. Said flipfloppers love to insist that they’ve been Packers fans forever. If the Packers play Tennessee in Super Bowl Chico will be represented on both teams

                                The beginning of the end for me with NFL was the 4 years in which we lived in Austin, TX in 90s. The loathsome Cowboys won the Super Bowl 3 of those 4 years. And the only thing worse than a Dallas Cowboys fan is a Dallas Cowboys fan when they win

                                Yep enjoy the action but agree time outs and ad breaks kill the fun. Try fantasy nfl - that gets you into it as you then know the top players

                              I’ve not had the password emails but my team has been completely changed, and the team name deleted. I appear to have taken around 3500 points worth of hits!!

                              Anyone else suffered the same and if anyone is in touch with FPL can you let me know the best way to get hold of them?

                                  Not particularly - but I never really thought anyone would bother screwing with peoples FPL teams.

                                  Naive I guess. Password overhaul incoming but I’m still hoping FPL can roll back the changes.

                                    That is really bad, you seem to be one of the unlucky ones (a growing number).

                                    I would say: don't blame yourself. We're in victim-blaming territory here, same as when someone has a bike stolen and they say you should have had a better lock.

                                    Erm, it's the thieves who need to face the opprobrium, not the theived

                                      I'm going to use opprobrium in three of my conversations tomorrow to see how it regurgitates.

                                        You need three conversations in which opprobrium works – but that's actually not that hard, to be fair, is it? There is a lot of opprobrium about

                                          It wiil be hard, I just know I'm 'gonna get "you what mate" responses unless I visit Chatham House again.

                                            Easy one, if someone bumps into you on the tube/in the street/in the lift etc, give it an affronted: "Good sir, you have my opprobrium!"
