GW Points: 161
Overall Points: 2,247
Overall Rank: 537
Transfers: None used
Game week 37 was by far my best week of the season with 161 points scored. This result bumped the team up significantly in the overall rankings with a top 1,000 finish now looking almost certain. I also managed to avoid using any transfers, this leaves me with two for the month which I can use for the Europa League or FA cup final. A lot of the success from the week can be put down to Kane picking up 63 points, however players such as Sanchez, De Bruyne, Hazard and Bailly also scored well.
As mentioned above Kane picked up 63 points with two star man awards and seven goals over the week. I’d imagine my rise in the overall league can be put down to jumping above managers on a similar level of points who didn’t have Kane.
De Bruyne picked up another star man award and 22 points for the game week. This was another fantastic result considering I wanted to transfer him out towards the middle of the season. He finished very strongly and ended up picked up way more points than I’d imagined he would.
Sanchez once again proved a consistent point scorer with 21 points during the week. He also has the advantage of the FA cup final still to play.
Hazard picked up a goal and the star man award yesterday, resulting in 16 points for the week. This was a good result, again with the FA cup final in mind for some additional points in the last game of the season.
Bailly picked up two clean sheets in Man Utd’s final Premier League games of the season. His sending off in the Europa League was almost a blessing in disguise, as he probably wouldn’t have featured in these games had he been available for the final.
Azpilicueta and Pogba grabbed a good number of points for the game week. The main positive for these players is that they both have one more game before the end of the season.
Foster, Stones, Rojo, Bailly, De Bruyne, Eriksen and Kane have no more games this season. This isn’t really an issue as I imagine many other managers are in the same position. Fortunately I’ve saved two transfers to try and squeeze the most out of the final games.
Tips for Game Week 38
If you’re fortunate enough to have saved any transfers until this stage in the month, obviously the only players worth considering are players from Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal, as they are the only teams with fixtures remaining. Personally I’d be looking at who is most likely to pick up the star man award or chip in with any goals. The obvious candidates are Sanchez or Hazard for the FA Cup final and possibly Pogba, Rashford or Mkhitaryan in the Europa League.
My two transfers are likely to be:
Rojo out for Cahill (purely to block my closest opposition in a mini league I’m almost certain to win anyway).
Kane out for Costa.
I’ll be checking the line ups on the day but at the moment I’m slightly favouring making changes to suit the FA Cup final. This is purely down to Man Utd’s inconsistent form during the season and without Ibrahimovic it’s difficult to pick a player who scores consistently enough to know who may grab a goal in the Europa League final.
