Ben Hamer highly sought after by FPL Managers

- Town was the only side to shut out Man City last season at the Etihad Stadium
- Terence Kongolo could have a big impact on the match
- Mooy produced more key passes and tackles than any teammate last season

David Wagner’s teamsheet for the trip to Manchester City could have a big impact on the plans of Fantasy Premier League managers.

Interest in Ben Hamer (£4.0m) is on the rise after he started in goal ahead of Jonas Lössl (£4.5m) in last week’s home clash with Chelsea.

Hamer was the only £4.0m goalkeeper to start in Gameweek 1.

As a result, he is the second most-bought goalkeeper in FPL with over 36,000 transfers in.

But Lössl will be pushing for a return as we look to stop Pep Guardiola’s attack at the Etihad Stadium once again.

Huddersfield Town was the only team to prevent Man City from scoring in front of their supporters last season, earning a goalless draw in Gameweek 37.

A 3-5-2 formation could be utilised again, with Terence Kongolo’s (£4.5m) ball-winning ability likely to be a big factor.

His average of 52.4 minutes per successful tackle was quicker than the influential Christopher Schindler (£4.5m and 53.5 minutes) for the Terriers in 2017/18.

Stationed in a back-three against Chelsea, Kongolo won both of his attempted tackles. His total of four clearances was more than any team-mate.

Aaron Mooy’s (£5.5m) all-round game will also be significant against his former club.

Away from home, the Australia international produced more key passes (24) and made more tackles (53) than any team-mate last term.

Mooy demonstrated that combative edge by winning all five of his tackles against Chelsea last Saturday afternoon.
