Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 20 Scout Report

Fantasy Premier League: Gameweek 20 Scout Report
Which City stars should you consider for your FPL team against Brentford?

As part of our weekly series, the Scout suggests one City star, one potentially dangerous opponent and another player from across the Premier League's latest round of fixtures.

Pep Guardiola's men are looking to finish the year on a high when we face Brentford on Wednesday 29 December.


City are already guaranteed to end 2021 at the Premier League summit, with a tenth successive victory in the English top flight up for grabs at the Brentford Community Stadium.

But the hosts, who have won each of their last two home matches, won't make life easy in Wednesday's 20:15 kick-off.

It leaves FPL managers with plenty to ponder ahead of Tuesday's 13:30 deadline, with our Gameweek 20 Scout Report hopefully easing the burden of those difficult selection dilemmas.

City Star

Bernardo Silva’s (£7.6m) away form could prove decisive as Manchester City visit Brentford in Gameweek 20 of Fantasy Premier League.

The midfielder has scored five of his seven goals this season on the road, a total bettered only by the nine of Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) among all players.

Bernardo has stepped up his output on recent road trips, scoring four of those efforts in City’s previous four.

Strikes against Manchester United, Aston Villa and Watford helped him total 35 points over that run.

The underlying statistics also highlight Bernardo’s creative influence on Pep Guardiola’s side.

Away from home, his 18 chances created placed second only to the 19 of Kevin De Bruyne (£11.9m) for City.

Opponent to watch

Ivan Toney (£6.6m) will be Brentford’s main danger, the forward scoring in two of his last four matches.

ICT Index: Brentford forward Toney has the seventh-best ICT Index rating among all Premier League strikers in this season's FPL.

The rating which combines a player's impact on a match, the amount of goalscoring opportunities they create and their likelihood to find the net.

Other Premier League Pick

Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m) are among the best captain options for Gameweek 20.

Liverpool’s Egyptian faces a Leicester City side who have conceded at least twice in six of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Manchester United’s Ronaldo hosts Burnley on the back of three goals and 25 points in his previous four outings.
