On the surface game week 11 looks like a fairly good game week. Although I’ve personally found it quite frustrating. There was a slight drop on the overall leaderboard, where as I’d rather see progress in the opposite direction. Having said that, I’ve still managed to retain three transfers so hopefully this will help to set up the team going forward. The mistake I made this week was not bringing in Richarlison for B. Silva which cost a fair few points. However on paper B. Silva looked to have two decent fixtures and they were based on City scoring 12 goals. Unfortunately he didn’t manage a goal or an assist in either of those games. Very frustrating.
Schmeichel kept a clean sheet. Job done in terms of that transfer. I may stick with him for the Burnley game as well.
Laporte chipped in with another clean sheet.
Hazard got 8 points despite starting the week with an injury.
Aguero got a goal and 11 points.
Kane had a good game week with 26 points.
Wolves haven’t kept a clean sheet since I put Doherty in. Although he personally appears to still be playing well.
B. Silva has been a player I’ve been monitoring for a while now. I think he’s finally given me an excuse to take him out with 6 points across two games where Man City scored 12 goals.
Maddison isn’t picking up points on a regular basis but based on his cost I’m not sure I should be expecting him to. He is also injured for the weekend but I’d expect him back after the international break.
Tips for Game Week 12
With three transfers in the bag I’d like to make some changes for game week 12. However the fixtures aren’t ideal for the changes I’d like to make, with a lot of the big clubs facing each other:
Liverpool Vs Fulham
Palace Vs Spurs
Arsenal Vs Wolves
Chelsea Vs Everton
Man City Vs Man Utd
Liverpool against Fulham is obviously the best fixture of the weekend. However I’ve got a good level of Liverpool representation already, as a result I plan to just stick with those players. Spurs play palace, but other than Kane I can’t say I’m drawn to any of their players at the moment. The player I’d like to move on is B. Silva and the timing makes sense as they play Man Utd. However the player I want to bring in is, Richarlison but Everton travel to Chelsea which is far from ideal. This transfer would also free up funds for a second transfer. Which would be to strengthen the goalkeeping position with Kepa. However Kepa and Richarlison face each other so the timing for this move doesn’t make sense. Also with the international break around the corner it makes sense to save these transfers and review after the break. I guess it’s time to decide whether to stick or twist based on the below:
Stick: B. Silva could be as likely to play well against Man Utd as Richarlison is to play well against Chelsea. This then retains the transfers for after the international break.
Twist: Swap B. Silva for Richarlison and hope the latter gets a goal at Chelsea.
Twist again: Swap B. Silva for Richarlison and Schmeichel for Kepa (despite Schmeichel having the more appealing fixture). Using two transfers for potentially little reward, based on these fixtures.
I’d be interested in people’s opinions specifically on this decision. At the moment I’m favouring the option to stick and then review after the international break.
