Transfers: Eriksen out, Mkhitaryan in
Another positive game week with a further climb up the overall leaderboard. The transfer panned out well instantly with Mkhitaryan picking up a goal and a star man performance. It was disappointing that Bellerin missed out on another clean sheet – had he played in every game since I bought him in, he would have had two clean sheets out of three games which is really frustrating. I think the past couple of months has really emphasised how vital it is to get off to a good start. I’ve held my own with all of the teams around me and the team has climbed the leaderboard steadily over the past few months. Had I been in and around the top 1,000 – 10,000 teams early on, I believe I’d have had a strong finish. Getting off to a poor start has ultimately had a knock on effect for the rest of the season.
A clean sheet for Everton was a highlight, they’ve been close to securing a clean sheet for the past couple of games so it was good to see them finally get some points on the board.
Mkhitaryan instantly picking up points was a huge positive.
10 points for Lukaku was another positive. Although Man Utd crashing out of the Champions League was very disappointing, given his loss of games.
Kane will need to be replaced – this is obviously not good for Spurs and possibly England. However it may have a silver lining from a Dream Team perspective. I’ve got enough transfers to make this change before the end of the month (many people won’t have) and it will also free up funds to strengthen elsewhere.
Aguero is also injured but I’ll have no choice to hold fire on this until we get more transfers in April.
Tips for Game Week 29
From a quick look at the fixtures it appears that Man City and Arsenal have no fixtures this weekend. As a result I wouldn’t be looking to move for any of their players. Liverpool look like a decent option as they face Watford. Spurs, Man Utd and Chelsea are all in action in the FA Cup. As a result I’m likely to replace Kane with Firmino (or possibly Mane but this is less likely).
