GW Points: 99
Overall Points: 1,593
Overall Rank: 1,613
Transfers: Walker out, Wan-Bissaka in
Mahrez out, Cancelo in
Sterling out, Rashford in
I opted to use three transfers in one go at the weekend, this was a change in strategy to how I’ve approach most of the season. I can’t say it massively paid off with the team dropping on the overall leaderboard. However, all of my transferred in players did score more points than those I took out. I also think the team is better placed now for the rest of the season with a better balance up front. This leaves 1.8m in the bank with an eye on De Bruyne coming back in before long. It’s slightly concerning that there’s still two game weeks left in the month and I’ve only got one transfer left, so I’m half tempted to hold onto this one unless anyone gets ruled out with an injury over the weekend.
Another 5 points for Schmeichel
11 points for Cancelo
8 points and 4 points for Maguire and Wan-Bissaka were better than nothing
31 points for Fernandes was great but almost irrelevant considering his ownership.
11 points for Foden
Another 8 points for Barnes, I’m still delighted with this pick considering his value when I bought him in.
I was relieved that Rashford picked up 8 points as I’d have liked a few more
Decent 13 points for Salah
I don’t really see any issues with the team at the moment, other than bringing De Bruyne back in at some point. I’d be happy to run with the team that I’ve got until the end of the month if I didn’t pick up any injuries.
Tips for Game Week 22
For me it’s a case of studying the fixtures again. It’s worth noting that Liverpool only have one fixture this week. Man Utd, Spurs and Leicester all have decent fixtures with easier Europa League games. I’d imagine it will be harder to pick who will start in these second leg fixtures, with Man Utd and Spurs almost certain of progressing to the next round.
Check out the full fixtures below, I plan to start adding the fixtures for March shortly:
