Transfers: Mahrez out, De Bruyne in
Game week 12 seems like a bit of a distant memory after the International break. However, I’m just looking towards the weekends fixtures so thought it would be useful to recap on the last game week. It was another pretty flat week for me with hardly any movement on the overall leaderboard. I took Mahrez out because he was benched again, I put De Bruyne in because I think he’s a better long term option. This didn’t pay off against Liverpool but I’m hoping it will do before the end of the month. In some ways I’m still struggling to see how I could do things differently to get a better result as I’m not unhappy with my team in general.
Abraham scored again and received 8 points. This makes him the second highest scoring player on the game. I only wish I’d jumped on this transfer earlier as it took a few weeks for me to eventually take the plunge.
Tomori picked up a clean sheet and 8 points.
Mane, Salah and Robertson all picked up points.
Otamendi didn’t play. This probably saved him minus points but ultimately he’s a player who may need to come out.
It was disappointing that Mount, Sterling, De Bruyne and Kane didn’t pick up points but I wouldn’t say I’m considering taking any of them out yet.
Tips for Game Week 13
If you’ve saved your transfers until after the International break then you’ll probably be looking to use them this weekend. Unfortunately, the two teams with the best fixtures have both been inconsistent this season – Man Utd (Sheff Utd and Astana) and Arsenal (Southampton and Eintracht). I can’t say I’m tempted to bring in players from either of these teams personally despite the fixtures. Spurs could be a team to look at with the appointment of Mourinho, a lot of teams have that instant lift with a new manager and he will certainly have a point to prove against an out of form West Ham. Chelsea face City which is a concern for me as I have three Chelsea players and City will be wanting to bounce back from the defeat against Liverpool. Liverpool themselves travel to Palace which I’d expect them to win.
I’ll personally be potentially looking for a replacement for Otamendi and this might well be my next transfer.
