Best Manchester City players for UCL Fantasy 2023/24

Ederson (6.0m, Goalkeeper) – 7/10

  • Each season, we have Manchester City defenders or goalkeepers in our teams
  • Ederson is a safe goalkeeper pick, although City defense is not as reliable lately as we were used to
  • With so many question marks among their defenders (we are not sure who will start), Ederson is likely the only nailed player in City’s defense
  • Manchester City is not allowing many saves against, so you must rely on points from clean sheets and not from save
  • Good group for clean sheets
  • Higher price tag is a minus

Aké (4.5m, Manchester City) – 2/10

  • could get 3-4 starts but will likely get benchings as well, expect rotation among Manchester City defenders

Ruben Dias (5.5m, Defender) – 8/10

  • one of the few reliable Manchester City defenders and expected starters
  • goal threat
  • Solid at balls recovered
  • MOTM candidate when City do well defensively
  • City with a high probability of keeping a Clean Sheet in any match

Rodri (6.5m, Midfielder) – 8/10

  • good at balls recovered, was top for balls recovered (alongside Otamendi) in the last season of UCL
  • can recover stable points output (3-5 points per match) despite the lower price
  • On average 6 balls recovered per game
  • can get you an occasional goal from time to time, and he is playing a more advanced role this season for City after Gundogan’s departure and KdB injury. Especially when Kovačič plays, Rodri can get higher on the pitch.
  • 2G + 2A in the last 6 games for City

Foden (8m, Midfielder) – 6/10

  • After Rodri, another Man City midfielder to consider in the UCL Fantasy
  • If you pick him, you must accept that he will be benched sometimes due to rotation among Man City players
  • But while KdB is injured, he should start majority matches

Alvarez (7m, Forward) – 9/10

  • excellent bargain
  • so far started all Man City matches in Premier League
  • great form with 2G + 5A in 5 PL matches
  • you will need more City attackers for their MD1 fixture against Crvena Zvezda, not just Haaland, and Alvarez is a perfect addition

Haaland (11.5m, Forward) – 10/10

  • definitely underpriced
  • you want best players from best team in your UCL Fantasy team
  • The form, fixture, reliability.. he has everything you want from fantasy football asset
  • hard to believe he is owned only by 66% of UCL Fantasy managers (In FPL it is 91 % despite his 14m price tag)
