Transfers: Salah out, Son in
Game week 25 was a big let down. I was fortunate to stabilise on the leaderboard, however bringing in Son turned out to be a disaster as he picked up an injury after only 19 minutes. It was a big relief that Salah didn’t do much either. On the other hand, I did welcome the return of Rashford, however it appears that his ankle injury is still bothering him and he was withdrawn at half time in the Europa League. Kane also blanked, given that he started in the Europa League this was a poor return. On that note, with Spurs crashing out of the competition suddenly Moura and Son don’t look so appealing in my team and I’ll need to move them both on. All in all, I think the right moves were made for the game week ahead but it just didn’t work out this time. I’ve still got two transfers in the bag, with a busy month ahead in April, I’m hoping this will give me a slight advantage.
Big week for Maguire with 21 points.
Cancelo also did very well once again with 22 points.
Happy with a clean sheet from Schmeichel.
Clean sheets for Dias and Roberton also returned positive points.
De Bruyne grabbed 8 points.
I was delighted to see Moura pick up 10 points given how cheap he is.
Schmeichel still needs to come out. It’s obvious that Mendy needs to come in as Chelsea have decent fixtures ahead. I just need to find the right time to do this before Mendy becomes too expensive.
Son will need to come out and I’ll need to consider putting Salah back in at some point. The problem is Liverpool don’t play this weekend. So it’s a difficult choice with regards to what to do with Son, as I don’t really want to be drawn into a very short term transfer with a long April ahead.
Robertson has no fixture this weekend, as a result he probably needs to come out. However, again it comes down to finding a decent replacement for the long haul.
I’ll also need to monitor Rashford and Moura. Rashford due to potential injury and Moura because I can’t see him picking up too many points between now and the end of the season with Spurs now lacking additional fixtures.
Tips for Game Week 26
Game week 26 is a short game week just before an international break. My main advice would be if you’re going to be making transfers make sure they set you up going into April, as it’s a very long month. I may use a couple myself but I’ll only consider bringing in players that I wouldn’t mind keeping hold of for a while. On paper, the team with the best fixtures during April by far is Chelsea and they do appear to be in a good run of form.
As always, I’d suggest studying the fixtures for the rest of the season before making any changes. The link is below:
