Overall it was a decent game week with a good jump in position on the overall leaderboard. The transfers paid off to a certain extent with Sterling and Aguero picking up 18 points between them. I was still disappointed that Aguero didn’t get more against Burton though. Based on pushing for a place within the top 2,000 teams only a couple of weeks ago, I wouldn’t say I’m overly happy with my position at the moment. However I am happy with the team I’ve got – I can’t really see how it could be improved on at the moment so I think it is just going to be a case of hoping for a bit of luck over the next game week. Although I’m not overly hopeful due to the FA cup fixtures at the weekend.
Clean sheet for Laporte. It’s good to see Man City back on track with clean sheets.
Decent performances from all three midfielders, they each got a goal and 31 points between them.
A couple of goals for Salah and a star man award.
Aguero got on the scoresheet against Burton, adding 10 points in place of the injured Kane who obviously got nothing.
I wouldn’t say I’ve got any big concerns. I’ve been fortunate for most of the season to not have any big injuries when I’ve been short of transfers or had any players face a long spell on the bench. As a result I’ve always had transfers left over. With one left for the month, the players I’m looking at are:
Doherty, who was dropped to the bench against Leicester and Wolves don’t appear to be keeping many clean sheets.
Aubameyang, hasn’t delivered over the past few weeks and I don’t expect him to start tonight. However Arsenal do face Cardiff in the week. This game week could be his last chance to produce something. Although I do like the look of the Europa League fixtures in February.
Sane, simply with Mendy back in contention I wonder if his game time may be limited again. Something to keep an eye on.
Tips for Game Week 22
Game week 22 is going to be a bit of an odd week. FA Cup weekend is always a difficult one for me as I tend to pick players who are key first team starters. These players often get rested during the FA rounds. However there is also another round of Premier League fixtures midweek, which may counteract this. As a result I won’t be using my last transfer despite who starts in the FA Cup. If I were to look at teams with the best fixtures, Chelsea would probably be my pick as they face Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup and then Bournemouth in the league. Liverpool don’t have a game at the weekend and then host Leicester so I’d probably avoid bringing in any of their players. Arsenal host Man Utd but then face Cardiff in the league, which could be a good fixture to target. After hosting Burnley in the FA Cup, Man City then travel to Newcastle in the league which could be another good fixture to target.
