Another successful overall game week with 78 points scored and another 50,000 odd places climbed on the leaderboard. This is still no where near where I want the team to be, but after a very difficult start we are hopefully moving in the right direction. With only one game week left in the month, I’m also fairly comfortable with the players I’ve got in the team. Hopefully avoiding any long term injuries we will have some transfers to play with in December.
Hazard had a fantastic week with 27 points scored. I think we moved for him at exactly the right time as he’s scored a decent amount of points ever since, whereas Eriksen has done very little.
Salah once again consistently picked up a good amount of points and grabbed a couple of goals.
Two clean sheets for Cahill was another success. He made a very slow point scoring start when we bought him in but is starting to pay off now.
A goal each from Kane and Lukaku was very welcomed after a slow couple of weeks. If I’m being honest I’d have probably hoped for a bit more from both of them over the game week but it was a relief to see them score.
A goal for Baines was a silver lining in another poor performance from Everton.
Bailly missed both of Man Utd’s fixtures with an injury. Luckily they failed to keep a clean sheet in both games so he didn’t really miss out on many points. Hopefully he’s back quickly as I’d rather avoid using a transfer to take him out.
Pickford once again picked up minus points with another poor Everton performance. On the flip side, Foster scored even lower so it’s still proving a positive move.
Pieters also picked up minus points. He’s certainly the weak link in the team. He’s a budget option and it allowed us the freedom to have the front 6 we really wanted so I’m happy to take the hit on his points. His value has dropped so much that he would be almost impossible to replace at the moment.
Aguero was a disappointment this week. He obviously missed the Premier League game at the weekend and then failed to score in the Champions League. The third striker has been an issue all season, I’ve always wanted it to be Man City player due to their form but I’ve never been able to decide between Aguero or Jesus. With game time being split it’s proving problematic. It’s something I may look at during December if I’ve got the luxury of transfers that aren’t essential. It could be tempting to free up some funds by moving for Jesus or Morata permanently for the rest of the season (as long as they don’t get injured), we could then invest some funds in upgrading Pieters.
Tips for Game Week 13
With a double header of Premier League fixtures in game week 13 it could be a great opportunity to pick up some big points. If you’ve managed to save any transfers it would be a great time to use them. Chelsea and Liverpool face each other at the weekend but other than this each of the other top 6 teams don’t meet over the game week. As a result I’d be tempted to avoid moving for Liverpool players. I’d also question if it’s wise to move for any Chelsea defenders at this stage. Teams with better fixtures are Man City (Huddersfield, Southampton), Spurs (West Brom, Leicester) and Man Utd (Brighton, Watford). Players who may be worth considering are the likes of any regular Man City, Spurs (Sanchez looks a good price) or Man Utd defender. Sane could have a decent game week for City but I’d recommend checking their starting line up first. Alli, Kane and Eriksen may have a good week at Spurs. Lukaku is a little out of form so I’d be tempted to look at someone like Pogba who is sure to get plenty of game time in the future.
