City v Brentford: FPL Gameweek 24 Scout Report

Find out who the Scout has tipped for Fantasy Premier League success ahead of City's clash with Brentford.

Guardiola's men welcome Brentford to the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday 9 February hoping to extend our unbeaten run in all competitions to 11 matches.

City currently sit nine points clear at the top of the Premier League, but know we'll need to be at our best once again to get the better of the Bees.

Thomas Frank's side pushed us to our limits in December's reverse fixture, and will be desperate to bring an end to a five-match losing run in all competitions under the Etihad lights.

Everything points towards a thrilling clash which once again leaves FPL managers with plenty of difficult decisions to make ahead of Tuesday's 18:15 (UK) deadline.

Thankfully, the Scout is on hand to provide one City player, one opponent and another Premier League star they expect to stand out in Gameweek 24.

Check out the latest FPL Scout Report below...

City Star

Riyad Mahrez (£8.6m) has the form to deliver another big haul in Gameweek 24 of Fantasy Premier League.

The Algerian scored twice and supplied an assist in Manchester City’s 4-1 FA Cup win over Fulham last weekend.

That mirrored his outstanding run of returns in Fantasy ahead of a home encounter with Brentford.


Mahrez has produced a goal, an assist and a double-figure haul in three of his last four appearances, totalling 44 points.

The underlying statistics during that spell further highlight his all-round influence on Pep Guardiola’s side.

Indeed, Mahrez’s 14 shots, 10 shots in the box and 12 chances created are all team-leading totals in his last four matches.

Opponent to watch

Ivan Toney (£6.6m) is the visitors’ dangerman, the forward scoring in each of his last three appearances in all competitions.

Main man: Toney is Brentford's highest points earner so far in FPL this season (77). He also equalled the record for the most goals (30) in a Championship season across the 2020/21 campaign.

Other Premier League pick

Elsewhere, Jarrod Bowen (£6.9m) and Harry Kane (£12.3m) offer strong options for the Gameweek 24 captaincy.

Bowen has three goals, four assists and 44 points in his last five appearances ahead of West Ham United’s home encounter with Watford.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane hosts Southampton on the back of four goals and an assist in his last five matches in all competitions.
