With prices changing tomorrow morning, I’ve decided to take Gomez out. He was benched at the weekend and Liverpool aren’t looking as strong defensively at the moment. I simply don’t want to have 3.4m invested in a player who is likely to be rotated a lot and even if he were to come on may be at risk of the clean sheet bonus already being gone.
There were a few candidates to bring in. However I’ve opted for Mina. He’s cheap and Everton have started the season well. I’m already regretting not going with the fixtures and picking at least one of their defenders from the start of the season. I’m sure by going for one now their form will quickly change but Mina looks almost certain to rise in value tomorrow morning and at the moment I can’t see any reason why he won’t be starting tomorrow evening.
I’ve opted for a cheaper player, as I think this will help to free up funds to create some good options going into the weekend. The transfer leaves me with 1.8m in the bank.
The players I’ve got question marks next to at the moment are B. Silva and Moura. The 1.8m in the bank will allow me to check who is starting for City against Bournemouth. If Silva is benched I’ll probably be bringing in De Bruyne (if he starts). Unfortunately Moura isn’t playing until 4:30pm on Sunday, as a result I think I’m going to keep him for another game week regardless of him starting against Newcastle or not. I know many people are thinking about moving him on already and I can see why after he was benched against City. However he’s picked up 5 points and 8 points over the first two game weeks. I’m delighted with this return from a 3m midfielder and I believe he will rise in value again tomorrow morning. If Spurs were kicking off at the same time as Chelsea, I’d be tempted to swap Moura for Mount, if Moura was benched. We won’t have the opportunity to check this with Chelsea playing on Saturday. As a result I’m going to stick with Moura for the time being.
I’ve also got slight reservations over Maitland-Niles (tough fixtures but has started well) and Aubameyang. Despite scoring two goals in as many games Aubameyang is a player that I never seem to have any patience with. It’s completely irrational as he’s keeping up with all of the other more expensive strikers but as I’ve decided Kane and Salah are going no where the third striker always seems to be the one I constantly question. With the likes of Martial and Rashford scoring well for almost half the price it’s tempting me already to bring one of them in. In an ideal situation both B. Silva and Moura start and score well over the weekend and this could save me a couple of transfers to reevaluate the whole team before the end of the month.
Just for clarity, the only change for the time being is being done tonight:
