After a few weeks of progressing up the table, it was a disappointment to drop slightly this week. I’d imagine it was a fairly low scoring week for most but only 25 points was a shocking result. The transfers that I made in advance of the game week didn’t make or lose me any points, which isn’t a bad position to be in but I’d have liked to have seen them earn me additional points. Liverpool also crashed out of the Champions League, which given the result of the first leg was to be expected but I’d have liked to have seen more from Salah. If you play the number of fixtures game, some may be considering taking him out. But with Leeds and Newcastle on the horizon I’m not sure I’m brave enough to make that move myself. At the same time, though Chelsea and Man City do have 6 fixtures compared to only 3 for Liverpool. Something I’ll be pondering until the weekend.
I can’t really pull any positives out from the game week as no one scored over 8 points for me. But as I didn’t drop much on the leaderboard, the positive is that it would have been the same for most people.
I don’t really see any major problems for the upcoming game week. Moura is a player I’d like to remove but as Spurs have a double game week and he’s been scoring OK, I’ll probably leave him in. The other question mark is against Salah with Liverpool having a reduced number of fixtures until the end of the month. The problem is, when you look at their league fixtures in May it would be difficult to make a case for not having him.
Tips for Game Week 29
It’s been a relatively long month and there’s still three game weeks to go. I’ve personally got two transfers in the bank and I’m not sure I’ll do anything with them for game week 29. I’m hoping others will blow their transfers and I’ll get an advantage going into the end of the season where I can make the most of the transfers I’ve got left. If you’ve still got plenty of transfers to burn, the fixtures are listed below. City, Chelsea, Leicester and Spurs have a double game week.
