Overall the week has been fairly positive. We’ve climbed again in the leader board but I was slightly disappointed that we didn’t have a bigger week. I was hoping for more from the likes of Aguero and Sane. We also missed out on a clean sheet for Baines due to him picking up an injury in the previous game. Bailly missing both games through injury was another frustration.
A clean sheet for Pickford was very much welcomed considering how poor Everton have been.
Clean sheet for Cahill who is starting to pay off since bringing him in.
Goal and star man award from Kane was good to see, his points continue to rack up.
Salah grabbing three goals over the course of the week once again proves his consistency this season.
A star man performance from Hazard was another highlight. Disappointed that he was rested midweek.
Both Aguero and Lukaku picking up 8 points each was a good sign, however I expected a little more from both players over the game week.
Sane had a fairly poor week and was left out of the squad in midweek (rested I assume). I’ve been fairly disappointed with his points return since I transferred him in.
Baines picking up an injury meant he missed the clean sheet Everton picked up midweek. I’m not keen to replace him while he’s only valued at 1.7m and with big Sam coming in, I’m hoping a few more clean sheets will follow. If he can return from injury quickly, I can’t see me replacing him yet.
Bailly missing another two games through injury was a disappointment. I’m tempted to transfer him out as there are a few good options at his price tag. The likes of Walker, Smalling or Alonso could be a good move.
Tips for Game Week 14
With a new set of transfers available for this game week I’d firstly suggest thinking carefully about rushing into anything. December is due to be a long month, I’ve previously used all three of my transfers straight away but I’m unlikely to do so this time. In terms of game week 14, I’d firstly avoid making a move for Man Utd or Arsenal players in the first instance as they face each other over the weekend. Other than that Chelsea, Man City, Spurs and Liverpool all have decent fixtures. They’ve all also got their final Champions League fixtures to play. I’d personally be looking at some Chelsea representation if you don’t already have any, they’ve got decent fixtures for the whole month and their defenders are reasonably priced at the moment. Hazard and Morata could both have a good month. Man City are another team who are hard to ignore and should also have a decent month, my main issue with their players is that they are rotated so often but it would be easy to make a case for Sane, Sterling, De Bruyne and Aguero being included in any team. Walker also looks like a decent price if you wanted one of their defenders. Spurs are on a bad run of form at the moment but I think Harry Kane is essential, however if you’ve not got him already it’s going to be difficult to get him in now. In terms of my team here’s how I see it currently:
Pickford – keeping, I’m not overly bothered by my keeper and it would take significant funds to upgrade.
Bailly – needs replacing if his injury problems aren’t resolved quickly. Keeping if he’s back soon
Cahill – keep
Pieters – keep, not performing well but every team has to free up some budget somewhere and he is my weak link
Baines – tempted to wait this one out, hopefully the injury isn’t long term. I can’t see anyone worth swapping him for at his price.
Salah – keep
Hazard – keep
Sane – keep for the time being. His form is a little concerning already
Kane – keep
Lukaku – keep unless he gets dropped
Aguero – keep for the time being, He’s not picking up as many points as I’d hoped and gets rotated too often for my liking.
Overall I’m happy with my team and if everyone was fit I’d be making no changes.
