Transfers: None used (Leno out, Schmeichel in after the game week ended)
I’d describe game week 10 as a fairly stable game week. A solid 50 points was a good result and this contributed to breaking into the top 10,000 teams on the leaderboard. This is a fairly decent position to be in, however I’d prefer to push this on further as the season progresses. I was also in a great position in terms of transfers with one unused transfer remaining for the month. I opted to use this to take out Leno, as I don’t see Arsenal doing overly well against Liverpool. I decided to drop in Schmeichel for the short term as Leicester have a decent run of fixtures. I have no plans for my November transfers as of yet as I’m fairly happy with how the team is set up. I was toying with the idea of taking B. Silva and Leno out for Ederson and Richarlison. However with De Bruyne out for a month, I may well now stick with B. Silva. The price changes this morning have also priced me out of these transfers.
Doherty got himself 8 points with a star man award despite losing 1 – 0.
Laporte got another clean sheet and 7 more points.
Both Mane and Salah did well with a combined total of 30 points.
Although I’ve only just put him in. I’m not overly convinced by Schmeichel in goal. Should Leicester fail to keep a clean sheet against Cardiff, I may look at this position again very quickly.
Hazard missed last weekend’s game through injury so this is another one to monitor.
Doherty hasn’t kept a clean sheet since I put him in. Although he’s still good value it’s worth keeping an eye on Wolves in case their form is looking like dropping.
Tips for Game Week 11
Man City look like they have a favourable week approaching with Southampton and Shakhtar approaching. I’d probably avoid Arsenal players as they face Liverpool at the weekend. Man Utd have a decent fixture against Bournemouth at the weekend but I wouldn’t fancy them when they travel to Juventus in the Champions League. Spurs could have a decent week with a trip to Wolves before they host PSV in a must win game in the Champions League. Leicester could be a team to look out for as they face Cardiff at the weekend and then play Burnley, Brighton, Watford and Fulham during the rest of the month.
