The reigning Premier League champions currently sit just three points off top spot after 11 matches.
And that record becomes all the more impressive given Pep Guardiola’s men have already claimed victories away to Chelsea and Manchester United, as well earning a thrilling 2-2 draw at Liverpool.
Those performances have translated into Fantasy Premier League, where City’s stars are among the most in-demand players available to managers across the game.
But which of Pep Guardiola’s men is among the top two highest points-earners across the campaign so far? Who, according to FPL, is our most in-form player? And which of our stars have made the weekly FPL Dream Team? Find out below…
Cancelo’s Impressive haul
Joao Cancelo has been one of City’s standout players in the opening months of the 2021-22 Premier League season, and that has been reflected by his FPL score.
The Portuguese defender has earned 67 points across 11 matches, averaging out at a hugely impressive six per game.
He has grabbed seven clean sheets and four assists en route to that incredible haul, and was recently voted King of the Gameweek for his performance in our 2-0 win away to Manchester United.
To put his form into context, Cancelo is the highest-scoring defender on the entire game so far this year and is behind only Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the overall standings.
FPL Dream Team
A phenomenal seven different City stars have been named in the FPL team of the week so far, a total bettered only by Chelsea (11), and matched only by Liverpool and West Ham United.
The weekly FPL Dream Team is made up of the 11 highest-scoring players across a weekend of fixtures, with Joao Cancelo and Gabriel Jesus both having been named on more than one occasion.
Cancelo has featured three times thanks to his role in our wins over Leicester, Chelsea and Manchester United while Gabriel Jesus made successive team of the week’s in our 5-0 triumphs over Norwich and Arsenal respectively.
The other players to make the cut over the first 11 matches of the season are Aymeric Laporte (Arsenal), Ferran Torres (Arsenal), Kevin De Bruyne (Burnley), Bernardo Silva (Burnley) and Phil Foden (Brighton).
King of the Gameweek
Of the seven players to have been named in the FPL Dream Team, Ferran Torres and Joao Cancelo are the only two to have also been named King of the Gameweek.
The title is awarded to the highest points-scorer across an entire weekend of Premier League fixtures, with the duo coming out on top in Gameweek Three and Gameweek 11 respectively.
Torres grabbed two goals and one assist in our 5-0 win over Arsenal back in August, helping him to reach a hugely impressive total of 18 points.
Cancelo on the other hand earned 14 points for his display in the 186th Manchester Derby, which included a clean sheet and two assists in our 2-0 win at Old Trafford.
Influence, Creativity, Threat
The FPL 'Creativity' stat assesses a player’s performance in terms of the amount of goalscoring opportunities they produce.
And Jack Grealish's score of 334.0 is bettered by just five other players across the entire Premier League.
‘Creativity’ combines with the ‘Influence’ and ‘Threat’ indicators to create the ICT Index, which takes into account both a player’s impact on a match and how likely they are to score goals.
The England man also makes the top ten in this category with an overall score of 86.6, while Gabriel Jesus comes in at number 12 among his Premier League peers with 85.1
Foden the man in form
According to FPL statistics, Phil Foden is Manchester City’s most in-form player.
The form indicator is calculated by a player’s average score per match across the previous 30 days.
And thanks to Foden’s three goals and two assists in his last five Premier League appearances, the 21-year-old currently boasts an impressive tally of 7.7.
Only five other players can better that number according to FPL, but one of those is Mason Mount, whose 8.3 rating can be isolated to him grabbing a hat-trick against Norwich in October.
