In preparation for Double Gameweek 25 (DGW25) and Gameweek 24 of Fantasy Premier League, The Scout evaluates investment strategies for clubs with double fixtures and enticing matchups.
Manchester City enjoys a favorable schedule with three home games across the next two Gameweeks, hosting Everton, Chelsea, and Brentford in DGW25. They also confront AFC Bournemouth in Blank Gameweek 26, coinciding with Liverpool's lack of fixtures post DGW25, making City an optimal choice for tripling up.
Stellar Performances of De Bruyne and Haaland:
Pep Guardiola's side benefits from the return of Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland from injury. De Bruyne's immediate impact includes one goal and three assists in the last three Gameweeks, elevating the performances of Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez. Foden, particularly, shines with 28 points, including a career-best 20-point haul against Brentford.
Goal Threat and Creative Prowess:
Foden and Alvarez emerge as key figures, ranking among City's top players for shots and shots on target. De Bruyne, Haaland, and Bernardo Silva also impress despite limited playing time. De Bruyne stands out as a creative force, matching Foden's key passes and contributing significantly to big chances created.
Best Picks from Manchester City:
Haaland and De Bruyne emerge as top picks, offering proven Fantasy assets capable of substantial point hauls. Haaland, in particular, stands as a strong captaincy option, with soaring ownership and an integral role in City's attack. Foden's versatility positions him favorably as a third pick, with his ability to excel in various positions. However, Alvarez faces competition for his spot amid upcoming Double and Blank Gameweeks.
Manchester City's offensive prowess makes tripling up on their attack a strategic move, despite defensive inconsistencies. Foden's versatility and Haaland's captaincy potential solidify their positions as prime Fantasy assets in the coming weeks.
