Man City had a fairly average season based on their early expectations to be challenging for the league title. They will be certain to mount a bigger challenge next season, as a result I thought it would be useful to store their player stats from the 2016/2017 season. This should give us a bit of an insight when it comes to deciding who to select for the next campaign.
Players who may be worth considering for next season
Stones – despite not even reaching the 100 point mark last season, I’d still go for Stones again purely based on his low price tag. If he remains as low as he was last time around he will certainly be in my team again.
De Bruyne – provided the most assists of any players in the Premier League and finished with over 200 points. His value was fairly low by the end of the season. He could be a useful reasonably priced midfielder to have next season.
Sterling/Sane – should De Bruyne prove too expensive, a cheaper alternative may be Sterling or Sane. Both will play in more advanced roles and if they put a run of good form together could rack up a good number of points.
Aguero – historically Aguero has always been the first name on my team sheet. He’s been a consistent point scorer for years. He may not be the first player I select next season but he will definitely be a strong contender for one of the three striker positions.
Jesus – made an instant impact on the Premier League before picking up a lengthy injury. The young Brazilian looked to have ended Aguero’s Man City career before his lay off. However Aguero was quickly back amongst the goals. At this stage it’s difficult to tell who will be the main man up front for City next season, either way Jesus could be a perfect cheaper option if he gets a lot of game time.
