Transfers: Abraham out, Jesus in
The team made a little bit of progress during game week 14 with a further rise on the overall leaderboard. Once again the team is still a long way from where I want it to be. As I had a transfer to burn in November, I decided to go maverick with this move. I must admit this perfectly illustrates why I usually remain more patient. Yes, Jesus scored well over the game week with 16 points on the board. However, Abraham returned from injury and picked up 15 points himself. This now leaves me with a striker I don’t really want in Jesus and a couple of transfers behind where I want to be. Ideally I want Abraham back in. I should have waited and used my final transfer to take out Mount or Tomori – this would have set me up nicely for December with three transfers in the bag and a team I’d have been very happy with. Instead I face the prospect of needing to put Abraham back in and needing to use a transfer to improve a couple of other players. This isn’t ideal going into the busy month of December.
Patricio picked up 8 points. This makes him the third highest scoring goalkeeper – which is a good result considering his value.
Despite no clean sheets for Liverpool Alexander-Arnold picked up 10 points for the week.
My midfield performed very well with double figure scores for Mane, Sterling and De Bruyne. These three are also the top overall scoring midfielders so I’m very happy to stick with them.
Jesus picked up 16 points which was a good result for a newly transferred in player. It was just disappointing to see Abraham score as well.
Despite very few points scored for Robertson, Salah and Kane, I’m less concerned about these three as they should come good.
I’ve now got question marks next to Tomori and Mount. It was good to see Mount scoring during the game week but he’s not picked up quite as many points as I’d have liked. Tomori has picked up very few points for me and I could easily bring in a better replacement. With him being benched as well it won’t be long before I look to move on if his poor points return continues.
Tips for Game Week 15
As I’ve had a fairly good game week, I’ll probably hold onto my transfers until at least next week. As much as I want Abraham back in, I’m also looking at Man City potentially facing Oxford during game week 16 when Chelsea only have one fixture. As a result I may hold onto Jesus for a little longer. If you are looking to make changes this week, the only team with really good fixtures is Liverpool.
