Review of Game Week 34

GW Points: 42
Overall Points: 2,154
Overall Rank: 58,324
Transfers: None used

Another climb in the overall leaderboard suggests a good game week. At this stage in the season with nothing to play for it’s still not overly satisfying. Having good representation of Liverpool players appears to have paid off again – however it was a shame they didn’t pick up more points against Stoke. Arsenal crashing out of the Europa League was less pleasing with Bellerin and Ozil returning only two points between them across two games.



Positives:

Mane picking up star man against Roma with a goal was a good result. Due to Liverpool progressing to the final, I will probably stick with all of my Liverpool players during May.

A clean sheet for Pickford was a good result.

Azpilicueta picking up 8 points was another decent result. I plan to stick with him until the end of the season.

A goal for Sane was another highlight after a few quiet weeks.

Potential Issues:

Lukaku being injured could be an issue, however with fresh transfers for May – I’ll probably just do a straight swap for Sanchez until the end of the season.

With Arsenal out of Europa, I can’t see the value in keeping Bellerin or Ozil. Due to only having three transfers, Ozil will be the one to go. I will potentially replace him with Hazard or Kane.

Tips for Game Week 35

It’s a difficult part of the season with some teams having little to play for and the World Cup just around the corner. As a result it’s difficult to know who to favour. City and Spurs pretty much have nothing to play for (other than securing a top four finish). Chelsea and Man Utd have the FA Cup to prepare for, giving them both an extra game. However will Man Utd rest players having secured a top four finish. Liverpool have one less league game than others around them but also have a massive Champions League final fixture. A full breakdown of remaining fixtures (to the best of my knowledge) are:

Chelsea:

Liverpool (H)
Huddersfield (H)
Newcastle (A)
Man Utd

Man City:

Huddersfield (H)
Brighton (H)
Southampton (A)

Spurs:

West Brom (A)
Newcastle (H)
Leicester (H)

Man Utd:

Brighton (A)
West Ham (A)
Watford (H)
Chelsea

Liverpool:

Chelsea (A)
Brighton (H)
Madrid

Arsenal:

Burnley (H)
Leicester (A)
Huddersfield (A)

    1. Thanks – really useful. Annoying to see Keane as the highest scoring defender.

      1. Keane did well with two star man awards and Everton earning three clean sheets from four games.

        I do like to look at the monthly points total of players. It is useful to look at form over a four to six game period and it can be useful in picking out differentials if needed. It’s an idea that I picked up from the current overall dream team leader. He used to post them on the net ages ago. However, it needs to be interpreted with caution as past performances don’t necessarily predict future scoring ability.
        Form can easily come and go. For example, Heung Min Son was the highest scoring striker with 47 points in March then in April he scored only 2 points. Vast difference. Reason maybe playing a full part in cup games and Kane getting injured.

        There can a wide range of factors to consider when selecting a player: form, fixtures, rotation, team/player motivation, injuries and so on. No wonder it takes me ages to make a decision.
