Transfers: Zinchenko out, Mahrez in
After the International Break, game week 8 seems like a fairly distant memory. However, to briefly reflect on the game week – it was a fairly flat game week with only one round of fixtures over the weekend. This only resulted in 33 points which fortunately meant the team stayed fairly stable on the leaderboard. The transfers of Zinchenko to Mahrez was a disappointment with Mahrez blanking and Zinchenko coming on for what looked like a clean sheet. Luckily it didn’t pan out this way. At this point in time I still think this was a move in the right direction.
Patricio picked up another clean sheet. Based on his value I’m delighted with this return.
Mane picked up 15 points and appears to be consistently chipping in with points.
Mount grabbed a goal and 8 points.
I don’t currently see any major issues with the team. As long as everyone is starting I’ll be happy with the team I’ve got for the time being. The player who didn’t feature this week was Maitland-Niles. There’s a few options for moving him on however I’m tempted to hold him for this week as I’d imagine he might get game time in the Europa League. This is one I’ll ponder until the weekend.
Tips for Game Week 9
We enter straight back into Dream Team with another double game week with European fixtures on the horizon. If you’ve still got transfers to burn, the teams with the best fixtures are:
Man City – Palace (A), Atalanta (H)
Spurs – Watford (H), Crvena (H)
Arsenal – Sheff Utd (A), Vitoria (H)
Wolves – Southampton (H), Slovan (A)
Liverpool – Man Utd (A), Genk (A)
Chelsea – Newcastle (H), Ajax (A)
Man Utd – Liverpool (H), Partizan (A)
I’d personally still be looking at Man City despite their defeat to Wolves. Spurs are a difficult team to back at the moment but I’m hoping Kane will come good with a decent week of fixtures. I’d also still fancy Liverpool despite them travelling to Old Trafford. Both Man Utd and Chelsea have at least one tough fixture so I can’t see me moving for any of their players.
