Game week 20 was a complete disaster, what could have gone wrong went wrong and the result is a drop in the overall leaderboard. We would have been better off not making the transfers we made at the start of the month. Salah outscored Sterling and Lukaku outscored Morata. Not only did Lukaku score but Morata getting sent off topped off an awful game week. I don’t regret the decisions, and I don’t think they were bad choices. It’s just been the way this season has gone – try to make a couple of proactive changes to pinch some points where others can’t and it completely backfires. Although Morata had been poor anyway, I still don’t think he should have been sent off. I wouldn’t call it a dive when he had a hand on his shoulder. It’s probably not a penalty for me but at the same time I wouldn’t call it a dive as I’ve seen them given.
Clean sheet for Cahill despite picking up an injury, which apparently isn’t too serious. If I’d have saved the transfers I’d have probably looked to replace him but with one left in the bank I think Salah is a bigger priority.
Sane grabbed a goal and 7+ rating.
Kane continued his fine goal scoring form and picked up another 18 points.
Morata has been poor and I’ve reverted back to Lukaku. Before anyone points this out as being a rash decision – this was the plan in the first place.
With one transfer left we are still without Salah in the team. I’ve left Sterling in for this week hoping he can outscore Salah with games against Newcastle and Bristol City. I’m hoping we have enough funds to transfer Salah back in after these fixtures.
Pieters is an on going problem but what can you do with a player whose value is 0.5m. Ideally he gets replaced but I can’t see an option for this at the moment.
Keane didn’t play for Everton, which actually saved us some negative points. I was hoping he would recover quickly from what sounded like a small injury. This will be another to keep an eye on over the next few weeks.
Tips for Game Week 21
Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal all have additional fixtures this week due to the second leg of the EFL cup semi finals. Man City’s fixtures look the most favourable with a home game against Newcastle at the weekend and a trip to Bristol City in the week. Any of their big hitters could have a decent game week – Sterling, Sane, De Bruyne, Aguero.
