Transfers: Ibrahimovic Out, Kane In
With a number of injuries picked up in previous weeks and only one transfer left for the month, game week 34 was always going to be a struggle. I transferred in Kane for Ibrahimovic and was left with the injured Rojo, Stones and Pogba. Despite two fixtures for both Man Utd and Man City during the game week none of these three players featured. Fortunately some good performances from Eriksen, De Bruyne, Kane and Aguero saved my week from being a complete disaster. However the team is only just holding on to its top 1,000 ranking – now being placed 999th.
De Bruyne picked up two star man awards over two games. This was a great result for a player I’ve been hoping to transfer out for some time. I may still transfer him out for Hazard at some point during May based on upcoming fixtures and the FA Cup final.
The transfer of Kane paid off with 11 points for the week. A goal against Arsenal helped to achieve this total. My only concern is that Spurs only have four games remaining this season.
A late goal from Eriksen earned him a star man award midweek. He also picked up three points against Arsenal at the weekend. He’s been one of my most consistent point scorers this season and a valuable asset. It’s not surprising to see him now top of the point charts for midfielders.
On going injuries to Stones, Rojo and Pogba could be a huge issue. Bailly can also be added to this list after limping off at the weekend. I’m hoping Rojo is the only long term issue, otherwise my May transfers will be dictated by transferring out injured players.
I’m hoping the return of Jesus for Man City won’t push Aguero out of the team. Aguero has scored consistently since coming back into the side and I really don’t want to waste another transfer by having to remove him before the end of the season.
Tips for Game Week 35
If you’re looking to make some early transfers in May, I’d personally avoid Chelsea for the first game week. They aren’t in action again until game week 36 so it makes sense to save this transfer until next Monday. Man City and Spurs both have easier opposition over the weekend but are both limited to four fixtures for the rest of the campaign. Man Utd have two fixtures during the game week, so could be a team to look out for when making transfers. They also have six fixtures until the end of the season, potentially seven if they reach the Europa League final. Arsenal have a tricky game against Man Utd at the weekend, but then have five further fixtures until the end of the season. I’m currently debating bringing in one of their first choice defenders as a cheap option at the back as they are all under 3m. This would free up funds for someone like Hazard towards the end of May.
