Game week 31 was another pretty shocking game week. Only 44 points scored and another slip on the overall leaderboard was not what I wanted to see so late on in the season. I’m moving further away from that top 1,000 finish but there’s still a month to go. I just don’t think I’m getting the rub of the green at the moment. When I look at my team, I don’t think there’s too much that I’d want to change going into May. I think my biggest mistake was doubling up on Man Utd defenders. The logic was that the Europa League should present an easier fixture but it ended up being a high scoring game over two legs. Either way it’s difficult to spot what to do differently going into the final few weeks of the season.
It was good to see Mendy pick up 16 points this week. The only problem is many others probably had more Chelsea defensive assets than me so the clean sheets probably cost me places on the leaderboard.
Mount returned a solid 12 points. He’s been another good pick after losing Barnes to injury.
I still don’t see many huge problems with the team. I may perhaps move on either Maguire or Shaw as Man Utd aren’t keeping as many clean sheets as I’d hoped. Other than that it’s hard to see what to change.
Tips for Game Week 32
For me, there’s no real point in holding back too many transfers this month. If you’ve got players that you want in, it’s probably best to make it happen sooner rather than later. We could make a case for saving transfers for the Champions League final and stacking up on Man City and Chelsea players but this could easily end up being a low point scoring game. I personally probably won’t be making any changes this weekend, but that’s mainly because I can’t see any obvious changes that I’d make to improve my team. As always, it’s worth studying the fixtures:
