Overall the game week can be seen as a success. Despite only scoring 56 points, the team jumped almost 100,000 places in the overall leaderboard. We are once again some way off where we want to be but at least this game week was a move in the right direction. My main concern is that all three transfers were once again required at the start of the month to accommodate one player. The dilemma was the need to transfer out Mkhitaryan, whose form has been awful. My main target was Sane. To accommodate this move I had to free up funds elsewhere by swapping Valencia for Bailly and Foster for Pickford. I see both of these moves as like for like swaps in terms of point scoring capability, so I had to use three transfers to make one upgrade, which was a little frustrating. Fortunately November is a fairly short month so hopefully we can get through to the end of the month without any long term injuries.
Until the very end it looked like another terrible performance from Everton. Luckily Baines scored the winning penalty and Pickford saved a penalty resulting in them both picking up some points.
Cahill secured a clean sheet against Man Utd.
Salah once again got on the score sheet. I’d probably put him down as my player of the season so far from a Dream Team point of view. He was cheap to buy initially and has been a consistent point scorer.
Aguero grabbed another goal and 8 points.
Kane and Lukaku once again drew blanks. This is a slight area for concern as I’ve invested heavily in my front line. They’ve all scored well for the season to date but recent form is looking a little worrying. I’m not looking to change anything at the moment but hopefully this trend will change shortly.
My back line is still an area for concern. Doubling up on Everton coverage is a worry based on their current form but hopefully they are good enough to turn things around. Pieters is also a concern but every team has weak areas. In my opinion my front 6 is probably the strongest combination possible.
Tips for Game Week 12
It’s the usual suspects again for game week 12. Man City appear to have a decent run of fixtures coming up, so I’d be looking at the likes of Aguero, De Bruyne and Sane. It would also be a good idea to get in one of their defenders if possible. Chelsea also have some favourable fixtures so the likes of Cahill, Hazard and Morata could all do well. I’d probably avoid Spurs players as they face Arsenal and Dortmund.
