As expected, game week 19 was a poor week for me. I always seem to suffer when it comes to FA cup weekends. The lottery of squad rotation always puts me off moving away from my current team (which has performed well up until now) – I can never see the value in going for players for one game week in the hope that they will do well. As a result I’ve dropped around 2,000 places on the leaderboard which isn’t a complete disaster but hopefully this can get back on track soon.
Sane instantly returned 15 points. However considering Man City scored a ton of goals over the game week it was a little disappointing that he didn’t get more.
Kane grabbed two goals across both cup games – one being from the bench which was a bonus.
Hazard picked up the star man award in the EFL cup game.
I don’t see any major issues going forward. The team is pretty much set up how I’d want it to be. I’ve got good coverage of defenders from the top teams. Three strong midfielders from the top teams and the three highest scoring strikers. If I really had to be critical of the players I’ve currently got I’d say Laporte and Mane both have question marks next to their names. Laporte as he missed both of City’s cup fixtures – however I believe this was due to having a knock. Mane as his form hasn’t been the best but he is highly owned in a mini league I’m keen to compete in, as a result taking him out comes with a huge risk.
Tips for Game Week 20
Game week 20 should be a more stable week with just a round of Premier League fixtures to contend with. I personally can’t see me making any transfers unless Laporte is nowhere to be seen. The only team with a favourable fixture is Chelsea who host Newcastle. Liverpool travel to Brighton which could be slightly tougher. Man City host Wolves, Arsenal travel to West Ham and Spurs and Man Utd face each other. For me it’s not worth making any transfers based on these fixtures.
