It looks like Mahrez is on the bench and I don’t fancy going into the fixture against Norwich without a City player on the pitch. My team is in fairly good shape so I’m not bothered about blowing a transfer at this stage. After Torres played up front for 90 minutes last week and starts again today I’m bringing him in. He’s also much cheaper so frees up budget when it’s going to be difficult to get all the big guns in.
I’m fully aware this could backfire with Mahrez coming on and scoring well, then Torres being benched next week. However, at this stage it’s a move that makes sense.
