    I’m having a dilemma between sticking with Kane and Sterling, or taking a -4 to swap in Hazard and Lukaku.

    Obviously Lukaku is a bit of a risk instead of Kane, but I want to jump on Hazard sooner rather than later. Nobody else in my leagues have him yet and I can’t make the changes if Hazard’s price increases again. I may do the swap almost immediately after the weekend deadline to avoid that risk.

    Any thoughts?

    No advice on that really. Could go either way. If Kane blanks again at Stoke though I might be tempted to do something similar myself.

    As it is a boring Moreno to Kiko Femenia for me this week. Was tempted to ditch Sane for Coutinho but seems a bit knee jerk and maybe not worth a minus 4.

    Could go either way, Hazard scores big you move up a few places on your rivals...or Kane scores big and everyone moves up leaving you behind. Don't forget that if you get rid of Kane it will be very difficult to get him back in.

    If you have kept Kane this long, home to Stoke and Brighton is too good to miss!

    Sane played midweek while Sterling/Aguero/Silva/KdB were rested. Good chance Pep rotates Sane on the weekend.

    Hmmm, fair point. Done for -4. Sod it. All aboard the Coutinho train. Choo Choo!

    I took the a -4 hit to ship out Sane too. Got in Hazard though.

    I kneejerked Sane and Kane out of my team and brought in Lacazette and De Bruyne last Sunday night. Major regrets now :lol:

    Hazard might be rested I feel. Chelsea are already complaining about fixture pile up and they have two PL games coming up quite close to each other on the back of a champions league match where hazard played.

    Morata is the one I'm hearing about. Add to this the possibility of derbies being cancelled and we might be playing five-a-side :lol:

    Nice to know we hold the fate of Chelsea's defence. I took Christensen in two weeks ago and paved the way for him to concede goals to the mighty Newcastle and West Ham.

    Bringing Alonso in was one of my worse decisions this season.

    Took a 4 point hit for Haz and Moyesy screws me over.

    There you go. I can't belive people subbed him out with 2 home games on the run coming up.

    Yeah, I wanted a proper points bonanza from him this week though - at least 2 goals/goal and assist.

    Still, better than nothing.

    Having a pretty crap game week so far (17).

    Have Salah captain for tomorrow's Merseyside derby though, and I can see goals in that game.

    Finally, Kane as Captain brings some rewards. A lot of players in my mates league had morata and hazard captained, so I've jumped up the table this week.

    45 points with Salah, Sane and Aguero to go. I'm hoping only Salah earns me points today.

    Kane was on his last chance saloon and he delivered. Glad to captain him and need Salah and Coutinho to fail now.

    I really need to get Charlie Austin in my side as a 3rd striker, I had him a couple of years ago and couldn't stop scoring until he got injured.

    I have him but this is his first start in the last 4-5 GWs. So he comes in with a considerable risk.

    He was suspended for like three games though wasn't he?

    There's just no consistent budget striker this year.

    Yep, has been suspended. Coming straight back in with new manager is promising.

    Agree there isn't a go-to budget striker. Abraham and Murray have had spells but can't see them doing anything consistently.

    Aaaaand Salah is subbed.

    Jesus plays 90 minutes mid week, whilst Aguero plays 20 minutes. So what did Pep the baldy cnut do? Starts Jesus and Aguero is on the bench :lol:

    Salah scoring and will get bp but not enough to better Kane. Best case scenario.

    55 points with Sterling to play.

    Coutinho getting dropped was a set back.

    Why did Salah get a point for clean sheet when Liverpool conceded?
