FPL Show: Mendy can earn double-figure returns

19 Oct 2018

Former Fantasy champion Ben Crabtree says Man City defender can net high GW9 points as captain

Millions of Fantasy Premier League managers look set to back Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) or Raheem Sterling (£11.2m) for the Gameweek 9 captaincy, but when Manchester City host Burnley there is another potentially explosive source of points to consider. 

In the latest FPL Show, 2016/17 champion Ben Crabtree says Man City left-back Benjamin Mendy (£6.2m) is worth considering as an alternative captaincy option, despite being a defender. 

Mendy provided five assists in the first four Gameweeks of the season, before injury kept him out until the goalless draw at Liverpool, and Crabtree is eyeing a double-figure points haul.

"Mendy at home against Burnley, is probably a safe six points there, and he is going to spend a lot of the time playing left wing, I imagine," Crabtree says.

"He's already had two games where he's got two assists, so it could easily be a double-figure score for him."
