    Can't afford Hazard.

    City are playing West Ham ffs! It's going to be a goal fest, I can't miss out.

    Just to stir it up, Pep has said he is worried about Sane getting a yellow and missing the derby. Could that mean he doesn't start, plays only 20 minutes under strict instructions to not tackle anyone!? who knows?

    He's supposed to be ill, I thought. If he's fit, then I won;t bother with the transfer. Is he on 4 yellows or something?

    Yes he was ill but apparently fit for the West Ham game, however he is also on 4 yellows so it's tricky...risk him playing 90 minutes against a team they could beat with their reserves and he picks up a silly yellow. Who knows, we have to wait until Pep has spun the wheel :lol:

    Will Aguero or Jesus play? Is it worth 4 points to bring in Jesus?

    I wouldn't take a hit for it. Reality is with peps team you just need to get some City players in and enjoy the ride :lol: from now until New Year they will probably all play the same amount of minutes.

    True. But Aguero played the full 90 the other day, and Jesus came off at 70 minutes...

    And against West Ham, they could score a lot... it's very tricky to call.

    The reddit dog chose Hazard so I'm going with him. He hasn't been wrong two weeks in a row now.

    Kane/Zaha or Jesus/Mané?

    Jesus: WHA mau swa SPU BOU NEW cpa - guessing 1-3 games rotated: 4-6 goals
    Kane: wat STO BRI mci bur SOT WHA - guessing 0 games rotated: 4-5 goals

    Mane: bri EVE WBA bou ars SWA LEI - guessing 1-2 games rotated: 4-5 goals
    Zaha: wba BOU WAT lei swa ARS MCI - guessing: 0 games rotated: 1-3 goals

    Edit: Rest of my team is:

    De Gea Elliott
    Otamendi Mustafi Alonso Christensen Mee
    Salah Richarlison Pogba Loftus Zaha
    Kane Morata Niasse

    1 transfer in the bank

    Depends on the rest of your team.

    If you have Salah, no need for Mane. If you don't have Salah, get him in instead of Mane.

    Zaha is ok but CP aren't amazing. Good option for the price though, especially as he seems to be playing in strike. Richarlison, Gross or Ramsey could be better alternatives at a similar price.

    Kane is expensive and Spurs aren't playing great but he tends to score big every now and then.

    Jesus as with any City player will be rotated but you need at least one attaching city representative.

    If solely picking from your options there, I'd lean towards Jesus and Mane.

    Updated with my team above. Got Salah already, but think they'll both fire - Liverpool's scored around at least 3 pr game in the last 5 games

    Captain contenders:
    Jesus
    Silva
    Morata

    Thoughts?

    I'm very tempted to take a punt on Jesus but then he'll inevitably not start. Morata is perhaps the sensible option, but then he may have a repeat of the Swansea game.

    Don't have Hazard so I'm gonna captain Kane. For me, the order is Hazard, Kane, Salah, Aguero. Kane and Salah equally good but Kane has the better fixture since Brighton are better defensively.

    Hmm, very left-field options. I'd go with Jesus among them. Silva is likely to start but his assists have dried up. Morata might be rotated.

    Having said that, my captaincy choices have been horrible this season, so I'm very open to counter-arguments.

    I have a bad feeling Sterling and Morata won't start their games.

    Kane v a good but leaky Watford seems like the best option for my team...

    I have both and yes, it's likely they won't start. However, Sterling usually comes on as a sub, so having a decent first player on the bench should be adequate cover.

    My heart says hazard Captain but I don't like putting Captain on the early game. It can potentially ruin the rest of the day :lol:

    Cant decide if I should captain Jesus or not. I have Morata, Salah, de Bruyne and Hazard in my team as well.

    Gone for Hazard over Kane. He only played 10 minutes mid-week so should be fresh and ready to rip into Newcastle at the Bridge.

    Hazard or Salah. There's no reason the rotation we saw midweek wouldn't continue today, best captain someone nearly guaranteed to start.

    Swapped from Salah to Kane last minute simply because he's the only who I know will definitely start. Absolute lottery.

    That's a huge risk. Sterling and Jesus both might not start.

    Yep. Plus with Spurs already top of their CL group, unlikely he needs to get rested for the midweek fixture, unlike Salah. Liverpool need a good result midweek.

    Captain Salah. In form, should be a guaranteed starter following the midweek rest. He's had the most shots for Liverpool. He edges it over Kane (Spurs form), Aguero (start risk), Morata (form) and everyone else for me.

    Absolute madman.

    I nearly captained Sterling but Pep terrifies me. If you have one of: Kane, Hazard/Morata, they are safer bets imo.

    Got hazard as cap so glad he scored but annoyed that I just bought in Christensen and Chelsea conceded and he got the post.

    Holy shit that was absolutely brutal. That’s one of my worst FPL weeks ever - massive red arrow coming tonight.

    I’m so close to selling Kane. He’s just not reliable enough for 12.5m and I’ve wasted so many captaincies on him.

    How often does a keeper let a goal in and still get 8 points? 4 saves points, ffs!

    I have to transfer out Pogba now. 9.9 in the bank.

    Who are my options? Ramsey, for sure, given Arsenal's next 3 fixtures. Liverpool's mids (have Salah) are on rotation, same as City (already have Sane), anyone else that I am forgetting.

    Ramsey is a great shout - or Coutinho who was absolutely on fire. Doesnt feel good saying it, but it was like watching Barca yesterday.. At the moment Liveepool have about 3 goals in them pr match and Coutinho is on corners and freekicks

    Btw Morata is one yellow away from suspension

    Sane points since I put him in my team 1,0,2

    Prior to being in my team 7, 2, 12, 12, 10, 3, 16

    I don't want any of these Shitty cnuts anywhere near my team anymore.
