There is another double gameweek on the way for Manchester City so are you ready to spin that wheel once again for a bit of ‘Pep roulette’?
The biggest winners in gameweek 27 were the Riyad Mahrez owners with 16 points from 171 minutes played, while keeper Ederson, defenders Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias, and midfielder Kevin de Bruyne also started and completed both games .
But if you had Phil Foden in your team then you have probably sworn to yourself that you are never picking a City player again after just 25 minutes of action and one point in the double gameweek.
Do not give up on City players but never try and second-guess manager Pep Guardiola – that is the first rule of fantasy football!
You could move heaven and earth to get Mahrez into your team for gameweek 28 only to find him on the bench for the Manchester derby or, possibly more painfully, the home game against Southampton next week. Equally, you could ditch Foden this week and then watch him play minutes and end up as City’s top points-scorer in the gameweek.
Statman Dave suggested in this week’s Fantasy podcast that Ederson, Dias and De Bruyne are your three most solid City picks if you were building a squad from scratch right now and do not forget that comes from the president of the Joao Cancelo fan club!
I have got Dias, John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan in my squad at the moment – and I am sticking with them. The difficult decision is whether to give Gundogan the captain’s armband in gameweek 21, but we will come to that in a bit.
