Transfers: Cahill out, Van Dijk in
Game week 22 wasn’t an overly successful game week, this is evident in the slight drop in position on the overall leaderboard. The transfer didn’t go to plan and the injury to Sane has created a huge problem. The plan for the start of February was simple, take Sterling out for Salah and retain the two transfers remaining. The Sterling to Salah transfer is still probably mathematically possible, however take out Sterling and Sane and the team is left with no Man City midfield coverage, which is far from ideal. There have been various suggestions thrown around in the comments but I’m not convinced the best solution has been reached yet. With prices changing tomorrow, it’s going to be a waiting game to see what’s possible before the weekend.
A late goal for Aguero last night and 11 points for Kane over the game week helped to build the points total.
15 points for Sterling and hopefully a price rise.
8 points for Hazard over the week is a good sign despite a heavy defeat to Bournemouth. I do wonder if it’s worth cashing in on him given Chelsea’s recent form though.
Another clean sheet for Pieters can only be seen as a good thing.
0 points and an injury to Sane is an awful outcome of the week. It’s created a big issue as mentioned above.
Bringing in Van Dijk, who played in the defeat in the FA cup and then didn’t play when Liverpool kept a clean sheet in the league was a disaster.
Only 5 points for Lukaku. If Man Utd didn’t have a favourable Champions League tie I’d probably consider taking him out.
Tips for Game Week 23
Man Utd have a decent looking game against Huddersfield at the weekend. Spurs face Liverpool but also have the FA cup replay against Newport during the game week. Should some of their bigger names play in this game it could be an opportunity to pick up some extra points. Unfortunately we won’t be able to check the line up for this game before making transfers as we will be locked out from the weekend. Man City travel to Burnley which I’d probably expect them to win. Chelsea travel to Watford. It’s worth noting that the first leg of the Champions League last 16 come into play during February. Man Utd, Man City and Liverpool appear to have the most favourable fixtures. Chelsea (Barcelona) and Spurs (Juventus) have the most difficult fixtures.
