Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 16 Scout Report

Find out who has made the cut in this week's FPL scout report...

Manchester City welcome Wolves to the Etihad Stadium on Saturday 11 December, with kick-off scheduled for 12:30 (UK).

After going top of the Premier League table for the first time this season thanks to a 3-1 victory at Watford last weekend, Pep Guardiola's men have our sights set on extending our winning run to six domestic matches.

Nonetheless, we host a Wolves side with the best defensive record in the division outside of the top three.

Victory for Bruno Lage's side could move them to within three points of the top four, meaning a City triumph is far from a foregone conclusion.

It leaves FPL managers with plenty to ponder ahead of Friday's 18:30 transfer deadline.


Thankfully, as part of our regular series, the Scout is on hand to ease the burden of those difficult decisions - singling out a City star, an opponent and another Premier League player who should be on your radar this weekend.

City star

Back-to-back double-figure hauls have made Bernardo Silva (£7.6m) the top target for managers in Gameweek 16 of Fantasy Premier League.

A massive 558,000+ have brought in the Portuguese for Manchester City’s home encounter with Wolves.

Silva has scored five of his seven goals this season in the last five Gameweeks, amassing 43 points in that run.


The underlying numbers highlight his major all-round influence on Pep Guardiola’s attack.

Silva’s nine shots in the box and nine chances created both placed second for City from Gameweek 11 onwards.

Meanwhile, his seven shots on target were more than any teammate.

That form has helped the midfielder into joint-third in the overall player standings in Fantasy, level with City full-back Joao Cancelo (£6.8m) on 84 points.

Opponent to watch

Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) is the visitors’ dangerman in Saturday lunchtime’s clash.

The forward’s 30 shots and 22 chances created both rank top for Wolves this term.

TRACK RECORD: Raul Jimenez has grabbed two goals and three assists in his last three fixtures against Manchester City.

Other Premier League Pick

Elsewhere, Mohamed Salah (£13.1m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.4m) are among the best captaincy options for Gameweek 16.

Liverpool’s Salah scored three goals and earned 20 points in his two meetings with his visitors, Aston Villa, last term.

Ronaldo faces Norwich City on the back of 17 points in his last two away starts for Manchester United.
