Havertz out, Barnes in
Game week 10 was a bit of a flat week for the team. I picked up enough points to rise slightly on the leaderboard and I’m still in a great position for where we are in the season but it was still a little disappointing to not rise further. The transfers I made were a bit dull but needs must. I wanted Salah back in due to his ownership and the fact that he takes penalties. With Havertz benched again, I bought Barnes in due to a good fixture against Fulham. Unfortunately, he then started on the bench. Luckily he came on and got a goal but then blanked in the Europa League. It was also bitterly disappointing to see Mahrez score a hat trick. I took him out a couple of weeks ago after some really poor point scoring performances. I’d have been absolutely flying had I kept him in but what can you do. All in all I’m still very happy with how the team is progressing and with plenty in the bank I’m going to make some positive changes for December.
Another 13 points for Mendy, he’s probably been my pick of the season so far. Loads of people have him now but I bought him in way before the most and it’s paid off.
10 points for Walker, it was good to see a return from Walker this week after only recently putting him in.
I was delighted with 5 points for Davies after being subbed on late at the weekend. Not so pleased that he picked up -2 points in the Europa League though.
Positive points for De Bruyne, Fernandes and Barnes.
I don’t really see any issues in the team at the moment and could easily make a case for keeping it as it is. However, with so much in the bank I’m going to improve Davies. He’s the weak link and playing in the Europa League didn’t benefit him this week, as it did previously. Knowing I can get Robertson in is just too tempting so I’m likely to make that transfers at the weekend.
I’m also going to monitor Ziyech, he’s been disappointing since I’ve put him in but finding a consistent midfielder this season beyond Fernandes is proving a challenge.
Tips for Game Week 11
My main advice would be that December is a long month, so don’t rush into any changes. I’d personally only be taking players out who are injured at this stage. Appreciate that I’m going against my own advice by taking Davies out but I tend to always have transfers left over. If you are looking to make some early changes Man City and Chelsea have decent fixtures this weekend.
It’s worth studying the fixtures for December when making any changes. I think this is still up to date but please let me know if any fixtures have changed:
