FPL Show: Time to triple up on Man City

10 Aug 2018

Fantasy experts say Bernardo Silva could be a key asset in a City team filled with big points scorers and set for a kind early run

Eight Manchester City players scored more than 150 Fantasy Premier League points last season and FPL experts say managers should back them to continue that form in 2018/19. 

In the first FPL Show of the season, Fantasy Football Scout editor David Munday and 2016/17 FPL champion Ben Crabtree say the opening fixtures favour Pep Guardiola's men.

The champions visit Arsenal in Gameweek 1, but after that their next matches are against the six most recently promoted teams. 

"With the fixtures they've got in the early part of the season, you just got to have a triple up," Munday says.

One of the most exciting options in Pep Guardiola's team could be Bernardo Silva (£7.5m), says Munday.

"With a guy that likes to rotate so much as a manager, if he actually hand-picks a guy out and says, 'He's going to play,' then you've got to get him," he says.

"He was arguably the best player on the pitch in the Community Shield and has scored more goals and put on more assists in pre-season for them than anyone else."
