    Knee jerked last night and took a -4 to get Arnie in before his price rise (and Mitro's drop). Second hit of the season but long term should be worth it (assuming Arnie's knee holds up).

    Also removes my weekly benching headache and leaves £1m in the bank for an upgrade the week after.

    Sterling seems such a good option, but I don't know if I can have him and Aguero?

    I'm sitting on 2 FT but no idea what to do with them.

    D.Silva, Mane, Richarlison, Maddison, Hazard
    Wilson, Aguero

    I would have to downgrade Mane and sell Silva...just doesn't seem right? I'm in a position now where the only guy ahead of me in the league has a near identical team to me, except I have D.Silva and he has Arnautovic

    I'm tempted to bring in Felipe Anderson instead of Arnie. He looked great on MOTD, although I don't watch West Ham closely enough to know if I'm getting suckered in by a highlight reel.

    West Ham's next 10 games are easy other than city, so it makes sense to have one or the other.

    It does. Kind of thinking I should have took a chance with Diangana too as my £4.5m mid rather than safer option in Camarasa. Just can't be bothered titting around with what should be a perma bencher.

    I also took the hit yesterday as I needed to make three moves to make it work financially but only had two free transfers. Don’t really care about 4 points to be honest.

    Swapped Alexander-Arnold, Masuaku and Aguero for Smith, Mane and Wilson. Finally have a roster of players who play every week bar reserve goalkeeper.

    GK: Patricio, Speroni
    DEF: Smith, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Alonso, Trippier
    MID: Hazard, Mane, Martial, Richarlison, Maddison
    ATT: Aubameyang, Wilson, Mitrovic

    I like it now.

    Took out Hazard for Sterling on Saturdsy morning before deadline. Absolutely huge. Wish I gambled on him being captain instead of Aguero - still.

    75 points is a solid game week given I was on ~20 at the end of Saturday.

    I want to get Sterling but I don't trust Pep, far too much rotation

    With KDB out, I don't see much competition for Sterling to be honest. Sane and Mahrez are most likely to compete with each other I think.

    He made half my score this week :drool:

    Exactly. There will be rotation. You just have to suck it up if it happens to you and play the long game because often the reward is worth it.

    At least for the next two games I Just cannot see him being rested. vs Man Utd or West Ham away.

    Edit: Pep is a rotator, but i also think some of the rest earlier on was Because he went to the World Cup

    Well, I'm wishing I'd changed Mane to Sterling instead of Salah. Might now do Salah to Sterling, although Salah has the better game next week.

    If you plan on keeping him it doesn't really matter if he's rotated. He's still gonna rake the points in over the season. With no way to know when he will be you just have to set and forget.

    Now everyone is taking Maddison out, I’m thinking of bringing him in. At the same time people want Richarlison in, when he plays Chelsea (a) and Liverpool (a) over the next three games.

    Maddison has Burnley (h), Brighton (a), Watford (h) and Fulham (a) coming up. Over the course of the season I’d have Richarlison over Maddison, but certainly not over the next few weeks

    I already got 3 West Ham players in my team so I can't do it myself, but Diangana from West Ham looks like a fantastic shout at 4.5 - Against Burnley he was all over the match, dribbling, crossing and assisting too. Should have had a penalty too after being clipped by Bardsley. Looks like a real gem they are unearthing there at West Ham - low point of balance in his dribblings and a bit tough to defend against.

    Great fixture-list too.

    Not using my free transfer this week instead wait till the international fixture week to get complete and use my two transfer to bring in Martial and Argi for Neves and Joselu.Also thinking of dropping Robertson for Arnold.

    I'm with you, Maddison has great fixture. I have both him and Richarlison, just don't see any reason to sell either.

    Two teams I could aim for, which is best? One has a much better bench (ie. they actually play).

    Patricio
    Mendy Alonso Robertson
    Hazard Mane Richarlison Sterling
    Aguero Wilson Jiminez

    Hamer WanB Bennett Guendouzi

    Or...

    Patricio
    Mendy Alonso Robertson
    Hazard Pereyra Richarlison Sterling
    Aguero Wilson Lacazette

    Hamer Stankovic Romeu Peltier

    First one definitely, Liverpool and Wolves have better fixtures than Watford and Arsenal. Plus, the first team also have stronger bench.

    Got Murray in for the useless Mitrovic now. He has great fixture in front of him.

    Definitely going to roll my FT this week. Team looks good and it's better having two transfers for international break.

    84 points for this gameweek, easily my best for the season so far.

    I'd go with the playing bench personally as you'll inevitably need it at some point. All City players are rotation risks (some more than others obviously) and even Robertson has been given a rest recently.

    Assume this is a wildcard? There are probably better options at £4.5m than Guendouzi too. Camarasa, Diangana, Billing...

    Go for Diangana too at 4.5 Id say. I like the first one better. Maybe Diop on the bench too if affordable

    First one for me. More balanced with a playing bench.

    Cheers lads. That's what I needed to hear.

    It's not on wildcard. It wasn't really clear but that first team's bench I already have, so I can get that team after next week with my 2 FTs, which is good because Pereyra has a good game anyway, who I already have in.

    I prefer the first one, even without the bench (which is also much better on that one)

    Cheers. Just realised it's 3 subs I need to make for that and I can make one now. That'll be my team in 2 weeks all going well.

    I think this weekend is the litmus test for Salah and Liverpool attackers. If they don't haul against Fulham I predict a move away and on to the likes of Sterling and Martial who's form at the moment can't be ignored.

    Hell I'd take a hit at the moment to do Salah & Deulofeu > Sterling & Martial if it wasn't derby weekend.

    Maddison injury messed up my plans. Was going to roll a FT and go into Int break with 2 transfers. Still might do it and just lose a bit of value on him.

    I'm my wildcard this week as the team was a right mess.

    Sterling exploding last weekend has really put a spanner in the works. Would you guys take him over Salah? Salah's fixtures look better.

    Just did Mitro -> Jimenez to free up some cap space. Then I'll probably save my FT for a week. Difficult doing anything drastic without any extra dough handy or 2 FTs.

    This fella makes a good case for Sterling over Salah towards the start of this -
