This isn’t a transfer I really wanted to make at this stage, however with Mane picking up a three match suspension I think it has to be done. I’ve not got off to the start I wanted, and I don’t wish to risk falling behind further by leaving Mane in while he’s suspended.
Out: Mane (6.2m)
In: Eriksen (6.3m)
I don’t think this one needs much of an explanation as most would agree Mane has to go. There aren’t many options for high scoring midfielders at the moment. I like to opt for midfielders who pretty much play as strikers – like Mane and Salah. Hazard would be a good option but I think it’s a little soon for him and Chelsea have a tough run of fixtures until October. As a result I’ve gone for Eriksen. I think his value may rise tomorrow and Mane’s may fall so it’s a good time to make this change before prices change. Eriksen also has a favourable run of fixtures for September as Spurs face:
Derby (EFL cup – he probably won’t feature)
West Ham (A)
Apoel (A – Champions League)
Out of the top 6 teams Spurs are certainly the team with the easiest run until October. I would have considered Alli but he will be banned for the Apoel fixture. I’m also hoping Eriksen won’t be rested for this game in a similar way Morata was rested for Chelsea against easier opposition.
