Game week 21 has probably been our most successful week this season. Pulling in over 100 points and jumping significantly on the leaderboard can only be seen as a positive. Shaping the team to include players involved in the EFL Cup semi finals certainly helped with big points being picked up by the likes of Aguero and Hazard. I think this emphasises the importance of opting for players with the best short term fixtures. The concern is that this run of good point scoring form could come to an abrupt end with no extra fixtures for these players over the next few weeks.
Aguero (36 points) and Hazard (30 points) both scored big over the game week. Hopefully both players can continue this good form.
After a recent dip in form Sane had a good game week with 15 points.
Pieters getting a clean sheet and 3+ rating was a good result considering Stoke’s form this season. I can’t see this being a turning point but still pleased to get the points on the board.
Another goal and 8 points for Kane.
Cahill drew a blank this week after picking up an injury. He made the bench in the EFL Cup but at 4.2m I think it may be time to move him on. The obvious replacement is Van Dijk, who is available 1m cheaper.
Keane again didn’t play for Everton. I’d read this injury was a cut on his foot so had hoped he would return to action sooner.
With one transfer left, we are priced out of bringing Salah back in. This can be easily resolved by making the Cahill to Van Dijk transfer. The decision is whether bringing Salah back in is the right move in February or not.
Tips for Game Week 22
Game week 22 is a double header of FA Cup and Premier League fixtures. This could be a good opportunity to pick up some additional points. The difficulty is knowing who is likely to play in the FA Cup fixtures with squad rotation very likely for many teams. It’s also worth noting that Arsenal crashed out of the FA in the last round and as a result only have one game this week. Out of the top 6 teams I’d personally favour representation from the likes of Man City, Chelsea and Liverpool. Man Utd and Spurs play each other in the Premier League which could be a low point scoring game. Spurs then have a run of very tough fixtures.
