Despite the lack of points, I’d still put game week 19 down as a success due to a further improvement on the overall leaderboard. The low score generally reflects the game week consisting of FA Cup and EFL Cup fixtures so it’s a little misleading. Regardless of the improvement I was still left a little disappointed by the week as it felt like a missed opportunity in the EFL Cup. I’d opted for both Aguero and Jesus hoping that would one start in the FA Cup and the other in the EFL Cup. I was bitterly disappointed to see neither start against Man Utd on Tuesday evening. I was even more annoyed that City managed to win so comfortably as I’d hoped they would struggle and need to bring a striker on. I may hold onto both for the time being but I think ultimately over time one of them will have to go.
A goal for Aguero in the FA Cup. I had a feeling he would start this game. 8 points was better than nothing but I’d hoped for more to be honest.
A goal and 8 points for Moura. This was an ideal start for a player I was cautious about bringing in. If he can find some form and take his opportunity with Kane on the sidelines it could be a good long term move. I’m still not convinced though.
5 points each for Soyuncu and De Bruyne.
I’ve got no major issues going into game week 20. The main concern I’ve got is Aguero and Jesus. I can’t see a situation where both players start so at some point one of them needs to go. At this point in time I don’t know which one will get more game time. My biggest worry is that neither of them start at the weekend – this would be a massive blow. My plan is to attempt to hold onto them at least until after the EFL Cup return leg.
Tips for Game Week 20
As always my main tips for the game week would be not to rush into transfers for short term gain. I’ve still got three in the bag for January and have no plans to use them at the moment. At this stage I’d only be taking out players who are injured or being benched too often. If you were looking to make a move, it’s worth noting that FA Cup replays are taking place this week. The only team that interests me in this would be Spurs. A fixture that may be of interest to some is Man Utd against Wolves. However, it’s going to be difficult to predict line ups for those games but if you can tap into a player who might feature at the weekend and in these replays it could prove a decent option. The players that spring to mind are Moura, Son, Alli, Traore, Rashford, etc.
