Transfers: Lindelof out, Coady in
Game week 30 didn’t really go to plan. A drop of almost 1,000 places on the overall leaderboard is not a position you want to find yourself in at this stage of the season. The transfer instantly backfired in typical fantasy football style with Coady scoring an own goal after minutes. However over the course of the game week he picked up the same -1 point as Lindelof so I was no worse off. I still think this was the correct move as it has freed up some budget for some upgrades in April.
A goal for Aguero and 10 points.
A star man performance from Hazard against Brighton resulted in 15 points. Despite his relative dip in form he’s a player I’ll probably stick with until the end of the season.
Two clean sheets for Ederson resulted in 10 points.
Despite Liverpool conceding, Robertson managed to grab 5 points.
It was good to see Stones pick up a clean sheet against Brighton after missing the Fulham game.
Despite a bad game week, I still don’t see any big issues with the team. It’s unfortunate that Aguero seems to have picked up a small injury but if he looks set to return quickly he’s not a player that I want to remove. Stones is player I may look to move on, even if he is now fit I’m fairly sure he will be rotated a lot. Rudiger’s form also hasn’t been great with Chelsea being very inconsistent. I also noticed he was dropped for the clean sheet they picked up against Brighton which was incredibly frustrating. I do however have some good funds in the bank to upgrade either both of one of these two. I’m tempted to put Van Dijk in for Stones due to Liverpool’s upcoming run of fixtures but this would mean I’m probably stuck with Rudiger. Another option would be to leave Stones and take Rudiger out for someone like De Bruyne. This makes sense but I think not doubling up on Liverpool defensively could be a mistake for this month.
Tips for Game Week 31
We are back in to European action this game week. However it’s worth noting that neither Man Utd or Spurs play this weekend. As a result I’d probably avoid their players in terms of early transfers for April. Liverpool look like the team with the best fixtures for the week as they travel to Southampton and then host Porto. Man City face Brighton in the FA Cup and then travel to Spurs in the Champions League. Chelsea host West Ham and then travel to Slavia Praha in the Europa League. These fixtures look good on paper but player selection could be a lottery in the Europa League as usual. I’m personally mainly worried about Liverpool this week which makes Van Dijk a sensible choice. Liverpool also player Huddersfield and Cardiff towards the end of the month.
