This game week was a fairly positive result with further progress on the overall leader board. The team is slowly getting back to a position that I’m happy with. However part of me can’t help but think it was an opportunity missed in some places. -1 point across my three midfielders was really not what I wanted to see from a double fixture game week. Man City were particularly disappointing against Newcastle. In all honesty I’m surprised given how badly some of my players performed that the team actually went up the leader board.
Fortunately the positives came from players that I was monitoring as potential players to transfer out. Doherty chipped in with a decent 20 points. Aubameyang got 18 points. Given that both Arsenal and Wolves have decent fixtures in February, I’ll probably stick with both players.
When I picked up Lindelof he was less than 2m. As a result I’ve never really expected much in terms of points from him. Man Utd still haven’t been keeping many clean sheets but they’ve tended to concede the odd goal here and there. As a result a late goal against Burnley was a fantastic result. His 10 points for the week are probably a big contributing factor to the team rising on the leaderboard.
18 points for Aguero was another positive. Hopefully most other managers couldn’t make the switch from Kane to Aguero, due to a lack of transfers, so this may have played into my hands.
Chelsea’s recent form is becoming a big concern. Conceding 4 against Bournemouth is not a good sign. It’s got me questioning if Kepa is worth the premium price tag that comes with him. Unfortunately my main reason for keeping him was his fixtures in February. Should he feature in the Europa League, as he has done previously, I’d hoped to take advantage of this. However their fixtures either side of this don’t look very appealing.
I’m fairly happy with my front three, but my midfield not contributing any points is a concern. I’m wondering if having Sane, Sterling and Aguero is slightly over the top. Having said that, Man City should come good and I’m not sure there are many better options out there.
My biggest issue for today is what to do with my final transfer for January. Based on the upcoming fixtures, I’m pretty much happy with my team. As a result I’m tempted to lose the transfer and stick with what I’ve got.
Tips for Game Week 23
Man City have a double game week with a couple of tough fixtures. They face Arsenal and Everton (due to the EFL cup final later in the month). Despite the fixtures being tricky, we all know City are capable of blowing any team away, as a result I’ll probably stick with my City coverage for the upcoming game week. Of the other big teams Chelsea and Spurs look like they have the best fixtures as they host Huddersfield and Newcastle. Liverpool travel to West Ham which should be a fairly easy fixture. Man Utd travel to Leicester which could be much more difficult. Arsenal are away at Man City but their fixtures do improve dramatically after this game.
