Transfers: Kane out, Aguero in (at the end of the game week)
Mount out, Moura in (at the end of the game week)
Game week 18 was another very successful game week. 134 points scored resulted in a decent jump on the overall leaderboard. This leaves the team edging closer to a position that I’d be happy with. I was also in the fortunate position to have two transfers left at the end of the month. As a result when the game week finished I made two transfers. I took out Kane for Aguero as Kane picked up an injury and Man City have some good fixtures in January. I also lost patience with Mount who has contributed fairly little over the past few months. I went for Moura as a replacement as he seems to be getting a good amount of game time and the moment and hopefully this will improve further with Kane out.
Robertson (15 points) and Alexander-Arnold (18 points) both continued to score well.
Soyuncu picked up 8 points with a clean sheet.
Mane (21 points) and De Bruyne (20 points) both had a very good game week.
Sterling picked up a further 10 points.
Kane bagged 11 points with a goal against Norwich.
Salah got 8 points with a goal against Sheff Utd.
Jesus picked up 18 points with a brace against Everton. This was a good result but could have been so much more if he hadn’t been ill at the start of the game week.
I don’t currently see any issues with the team that need addressing. I’ve decided to stick with Patricio as no keepers are really picking up enough points to justify a change. I’m also going into the month with both Man City strikers – hoping that one of them plays against Port Vale in the FA Cup. At the moment there’s nothing I’d change in the team given the good run of point scoring form it’s currently on.
Tips for Game Week 19
With fresh transfers it’s tempting to rush into making a couple of changes straight away. I’d personally be tempted to hold fire with January being a long month. We also face FA Cup fixtures this weekend which is always a lottery when it comes to player selection. The only player I’d be looking to move on is Harry Kane as he’s out for a few weeks I believe. I’ve personally decided to double up with Aguero and Jesus in the hope that one of them will play against Port Vale. Man City also have additional EFL Cup fixtures during the month. Man Utd and Leicester also have these additional fixtures during the month. However, I personally wouldn’t fancy Man Utd to get much from those games. Leicester players could be a good option but the obvious choice is Vardy. However, he’s currently out with a slight hamstring problem. I can’t see him being risked in the FA Cup fixture this weekend.
