Starting in Gameweek 30+ The Scout will review every Fantasy Premier League fixture until the end of the season.

Whether it's noting player rotation and injuries, making astute tactical observations or highlighting in-form differentials, our Daily Scout Notes will provide an unrivalled breakdown on each match, reviewing while previewing, as we guide you through the hectic fixture schedule.

TV Info

Pep Guardiola rotated eight players in the second match of Manchester City's Double Gameweek, with Sergio Aguero (£11.8m) back in the starting XI against Burnley.

However, his FPL owners were left sorely disappointed, the striker managing only a single assist before limping off after 45 minutes.

Over 115,000 managers have already sold Aguero ahead of Tuesday's 17:00 BST deadline for Gameweek 31+.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m) and Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) also endured a frustrating end to the Gameweek, with both named on the bench.

Instead, it was Phil Foden (£5.3m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) who emerged as the top performers over Man City's pair of fixtures.

Both scored twice against the Clarets, totalling 22 and 21 points respectively in Gameweek 30+.

Rotation concern

Although the performances of Foden and Mahrez will no doubt please Guardiola, it now raises the prospect of further heavy rotation over the season run-in.

If Guardiola continues to change his line-ups to cope with the schedule, it could be a big concern to FPL managers holding their key attackers.

Despite the heavy loss, owners of the Clarets' No 1 Nick Pope (£4.9m) should keep faith.

Burnley have four very appealing fixtures against Watford, Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and West Ham United up next.

Top scorer: Phil Foden 16pts (TSB 0.6%, £5.1m)
Bonus points: Phil Foden 3pts, Riyad Mahrez 2pts, Bernardo Silva 1pt, David Silva 1pt.
