2 defeats in a row, I’ve not experienced that for a while. I’m not too concerned, the cushion was 8 so plenty to play with. The thing that does concern me this week, injured players. I’ve been working towards this game week for a little while, bringing in players who will feature in the fantasy football fan’s dream/nightmare – the double game week.
I was already already pretty well placed with 3 City player, Calvert-Lewin and then last weeks new additions, Pope and Lowton. Unfortunately, DCL is a pansy and apparently not playing one of the two games. Coupled with Antonio who is….tired….TIRED, suddenly the DGW threat isn’t as strong.
I’ve taken the decision to go bold, and in turn look to reassert some authority on the league. Out goes DCL, one game (against City) is of no use to me right now. In his place, Cavani. United play West Brom, and Cavani was rested for the cup. This does of course create a nullifying effect as Kev has Cavani and so to counter this, out goes the popular bargain bucket midfielder, Gundogan. In his place, his team mate and England international Raheem Sterling and he will be the captain too. It’s cost me -4 points, but I’m hopeful that with 5 double game week players and one as captain, it should not make too much difference.
Pope; Lowton, Cancelo, Stones; Sterling (c), Fernandes, Salah, Soucek; Antonio, Bamford, Cavani.
Some filthy tactics from Simon this week, making me do my own research to see that some teams had a double game!! That has made me think some more of my tactics, so the yoyo man Foden comes back in and is the captain because I think that Simon will have Gundagon as captain and I need to be bold and go for the victory.
Out went Mane, and also Watkins exits because Burnley are playing Wolves and Fulham and they both reek of goals so I’m hoping for some magic from him!
I’ve won 2 on the bounce, surely I cant win 3? I had only won 6 all season before this little run!!!
Martinez; Stones, Cresswell, Holding; Lingard, Gundoga, Foden (c), Fernandes; Cavani, Barnes, Ings.
