With 4 transfers left for the month, I’ve definitely making some today. Unfortunately, I’m going to be away from my laptop when the team news for Chelsea play Leicester. As a result, I’m going to publish two scenarios for my transfers.
Firstly, I’m definitely taking out De Bruyne for B. Silva. Silva has been doing well, De Bruyne has Covid and Silva is much cheaper. It’s an obvious move to me so I’m doing that one now.
Now it gets more complicated as I’m torn between a number of players – Chilwell, Cancelo, James, Moura, Son and Jota mainly.
If Azpilicueta starts
My only transfer will be to bring in Jota for Bertrand. Change of formation to 343
Bertrand out, Jota in
If Azpilicueta doesn’t start, and Chilwell does
I’ll make two transfers:
Azpilicueta out, Chilwell in
Bertrand out, Son in
I can see the benefit of either route, if we only swap Bertrand for Jota it will leave two transfers for next weekend, when I can take out Azpilicueta and Mbeumo with more money in the bank. If I end up bringing in Chilwell and Son, I think that’s a stronger change but I’m then out of funds for replacing Mbeumo. As I’m torn between what to do, I’ll leave it down to Chelsea’s team selection and will go down the routes described above.
If you’re in the WhatsApp group, I should be able to confirm for certain the route I go down while I’m out.
