I’m caught in several minds about what to do with my January transfers. I’m tempted to take out Mendy, Zouma and Mount given their recent bad form and to avoid losing too much value in the team. On the other hand with FA Cup fixtures ahead at the weekend, I also really want to take a look at those starting line ups to try and pinch a few points in some easier fixtures for certain players. With January being a long month, I’m playing it safe by not taking out all three in one go. I’ve decided at this stage to just take one of them out and I’ll deal with the fallout over the weekend when I can see who is playing in the FA Cup.
Tonight I’m taking out Zouma and putting in Dier. Dier is incredibly cheap and gets a lot of game time in an improved Spurs side. He’s also certain to rise tomorrow morning.
The plan for the weekend will then be to check who is playing in the FA Cup and to make another change or two. The problem at the moment is that most of the players I want are just out of reach. As a result, I’ll probably review if I want to keep Sterling or not over the next couple of weeks. Man City have some excellent fixtures so it’s either his time to shine or he’s out of the team.
