Transfers: Aubameyang out, Abraham in
Game week 11 followed a similar trend to the season so far. After a couple of half decent game weeks, this was another nightmare. Luckily the transfer paid off with Abraham outscoring Aubameyang and Aguero. However other areas didn’t perform so well. It’s becoming a very challenging season as I’ve invested in players such as Kane and Salah and they haven’t really got going yet. Kane obviously missed the fixture at the weekend through illness which was a big blow and then failed to score in a 4-0 victory in the Champions League. Salah also only chipped in with 5 points over a double game week. The main issue that I have is when I look at the team I’m not sure what I’d actually change. I can almost pick whoever I want but I’d probably stick with what I’ve got even if I was starting again. I think it’s just becoming one of those seasons and I can only be patient as I generally think I’ve made the right decisions.
At his value any positive points for Patricio is a bonus. Although frustrating at times picking up another 5 points to make him the third highest scoring goalkeeper can only be seen as a good pick.
Despite not picking up a clean sheet, Robertson did manage to get on the score sheet for Liverpool. This puts him up there with the highest scoring defenders.
Another 9 points for Mane with a goal against Villa.
Abraham picked up 15 points, which is fantastic for his value.
Tomori still hasn’t picked up any points since I put him in the team. He’s actually contributed -5 points in total which is worse than Maitland-Niles over the same time period. I think there is probably still value in having him at 2m but I’d want to see some contribution soon.
Otamendi was dropped again at the weekend but did start in the Champions League.
Mount is another player to monitor. He’s good value so I’m not thinking about losing him just yet but if he’s injured and continues to pick up next to no points I may have to reconsider at some point.
Mahrez was benched again at the weekend. I think the move to bring him in was very unfortunate as he was starting most games before I chose him. He will need to be replaced I’d imagine.
Tips for Game Week 12
As game week 12 is a single game week in terms of fixtures, I’m tempted to hold fire on any transfers at the moment. For me this is for two reasons, firstly Man City and Liverpool play each other so there’s very little value in transferring any of their players in. For example, it’s hard to imagine that City will keep a clean sheet, so even if Otamendi is benched there is very little point taking him out. There is also an international break after this game week. In an ideal world I’d like some transfers in the bag for when we return from the break. If anyone is looking to make transfers I’d probably avoid City and Liverpool, but I’d also avoid Leicester and Arsenal as they also face each other. This does leave Man Utd, Chelsea and Spurs with good home fixtures who could be looked at.
