Why aren't Man City keeping clean sheets? 3

6 points is Ederson‘s (£5.4m) total score across Manchester City’s four Double Gameweeks this season. The Brazilian didn’t play a minute of City’s latest ‘double’. On a similar subject…

4 save points registered by Stefan Ortega (£3.7m) in Double Gameweek 37 – that’s as many as Ederson has managed in 34 run-outs in 2022/23.

4.5 points per start averaged by Jason Steele (£4.0m) in 2022/23, the best rate in the division among current number ones.

14 blanks in 18 starts at the Emirates for Gabriel Magalhaes (£5.2m) this season. No other FPL defender has as many ‘starting blanks’ on home soil.

1 shot attempted by Andrew Robertson (£6.8m) since he took up his hybrid left-back/centre-half role in Jurgen Klopp’s 3-2-2-3 set-up in Gameweek 30 – and none in the last eight matches. Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m), now ‘inverting’ into central midfield, has had 12 efforts in that time.

5 shots in the box registered by Yerry Mina (£4.3m) in his last two Everton appearances. That’s eight such efforts in six starts for the Toffees in 2022/23, a tally that no other FPL defender can better over their own last half-dozen run-outs. Up next for Mina and Everton are Bournemouth, who have allowed more attempts from set plays than any other club this season.

11 shots attempted by Tosin Adarabioyo (£4.4m) since his unbroken run in the Fulham XI started in Gameweek 30. Newcastle United’s Fabian Schar (£5.1m) is the only centre-half to have registered more efforts in that time.
