Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 12 Scout Report

Which City star should you consider for your Fantasy Premier League team?

Manchester City are back in action this weekend following the international break, welcoming Everton to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday 21 November.

Kick-off is scheduled for 14:00 (UK), and Pep Guardiola’s men will be keen to pick up where we left off following a deserved 2-0 victory away to Manchester United in our last match.


After starting the season brightly, Everton are searching for their first Premier League win since September but, with two of this season’s surprise packages among their ranks in Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend, they're not to be taken lightly.

It leaves FPL managers with plenty to ponder ahead of Saturday’s 11:00 deadline.

As part of our regular series, the Scout provides some expert insight into which City star you should be keeping an eye on for your Fantasy team this weekend.

A potential Everton dangerman has also be identified, as well as another Premier League player to watch over the upcoming weekend of fixtures.

City star

Joao Cancelo (£6.5m) has the all-round potential to deliver yet another explosive haul as Manchester City entertain Everton in Gameweek 12 of Fantasy Premier League.

The full-back is the second top-scoring player in Fantasy on 67, combining four assists with seven clean sheets.

His 14-point haul against Manchester United was the Portuguese’s third double-figure haul in 11 appearances this season.

Cancelo has also boasted a major goal threat for Man City.

Indeed, his total of 26 shots is more than any team-mate in the opening 11 Gameweeks.

Opponent to watch

Demarai Gray (£5.7m) could be the visitors’ danger man. His eight shots and six shots in the box in the last two Gameweeks both ranked second among all players in Fantasy.

Danger man: Demarai Gray has already been involved in five goals (three goals, two assists) in 11 Premier League matches. His best tally across an entire season is six (2017-18 & 2019-20).

Premier League pick

Managers looking elsewhere for the captaincy should turn to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) or Harry Kane (£12.2m).

Liverpool’s Salah has averaged 10.6 points per match ahead of his home encounter with Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane welcomes Leeds United on the back of seven goals in two matches for England over the international break.

Last time out: Harry Kane grabbed one goal and one assist in last season’s fixture between Spurs and Leeds at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
