    If Alli and Eriksen are too pricey, keep an eye on Moura or Lamela, one I'd assume will take Son's place.

    My current midfield is:

    Richarlison - Felipe Anderson - Hazard - Pogba - Fraser

    I'm not really inclined to change it at the moment.

    This season has been terrible for me!

    My team at the moment is

    Fabianski
    Doherty; Alonso; Robertson
    Fraser; Pogba; Hazard; Felipe Anderson
    Wilson; Jimenez; Kane

    Hennessy, Wan Bissaka, Zanka, Chalobah

    I have 2.2m in the bank and 2 FTs. Fraser and Wilson look like doubts...was thinking to get Salah in, so upsetting that I took him out just before his hat trick and his price has gone up a couple of times....any ideas guys?

    I hate not owning Salah, but what do you guys make of my team?

    Also, do you think I've got the bench options right?

    Used my other transfer to bring in Vincent Guiata - 4.2m goalkeeper. Played the last 5 games and got 24 points. Don't see why they would drop him for Hennessey, saw a poll on a palace website which was 95% in favour of keeping Guiata as their no.1 going forward.

    Does Anderson Wilson to Salah Kamara work?

    Would free up funds for elsewhere, I could afford to get Kane, for example, but I have Auba already anyway.

    Otherwise, how much of an upgrade would Rashford be over Wilson/Jimenez?

    I could buy Son, but he's off soon.

    On the whole, I think I should go for it, keep the money in the bank and look at bringing in Son when he comes back.

    What do you reckon?

    I think Rashford could be a no brainer right now. Son, definitely wait till he’s back.

    That's what I was thinking too, but City don't seem to keep many clean sheets at the moment, and Jimenez likes to score against the big teams.

    Perhaps a good week to use bench boost.

    If I buy Rashford, then I can't get Son later. Wilson & Jimenez are great options too.

    His underlying stats are good, and scored 4 goals the last 2 matches+ he always gets bonus if he scores. He can go on these big hauls 4-6 matches so for the money he costs and the fixtures they got he is good value.


    Good fixtures have Man Utd, Liverpool, Man City and Everton for example also who have cheaper options than Kane who i think will score less without Son. Kane did not score much when Moura played for example without Son and then i think his price is not worth it.

    If Kane plays deeper again like he did with Moura when Son leaves then he will get less shots in the box also.

    I agree with the rotation part, but since City do not lead the league they will have to use their strongest eleven more often than last year where they had a big lead in the league going into the CL matches. I feel that Sterling is pretty nailed and was rested in the cup so happy owning him going into the next 3 good fixtures since i want Man City cover.

    When I try I only have 2.9m for a forward left. I think I'll need to take Hazard out to get Salah in. Wonder whether I should be getting a City player in maybe instead of Salah.

    Salah has very good matches. After this GW, I am definitely doing Hazard -> Salah.

    Oh you mean Aguero. I thought you were talking about Kane.

    That's my plan too. Actually thinking of doing Alonso and Hazard > TAA and Salah.

    Alonso is a weird one. He's doing what he is supposed to do but not getting the points. He's top of the "Shots on the post" list but he still has decent fixtures (from a CS POV) so I am gonna keep him. Plus missing out on his points means going behind ~45-50% of the managers.

    I am actually on a very elaborate plan for the next 2 GWs

    Current Team:

    Fabianski
    Alonso - Robertson - Digne
    Shaqiri - Hazard - Anderson - Bilva - Pogba
    Auba - Rashford​

    4.0M GK - AWB, Doherty, Striker. With 2FTs and 2.4 ITB.

    Current GW: 4.0M -> Kepa to cover for Fabianski.
    Next GW: Kepa -> 3.9M GK, thus pocketing 0.1M for a 2.5 ITB and Hazard -> Salah straight transfer.
    Following GW: Shaqiri downgraded to someone (Pereyra/Richarlison)

    Thoughts?

    I didn't even know there was a £3.9m gk in the game. Ah it's Speroni. I wondered why everyone had him in as their #2.

    Alternatively you could just dump Fabianski for Guaita and play him this week then do your Hazard > Salah transfer the week after and still have another to play with.

    Fair point. Is Guaita 100% nailed on though? Cause if I move Fabianski now, it would be difficult to get him back. I got him at 4.5, would be selling him at 4.6 and his price now is 4.8. And his fixtures from GW26-31 are worthy enough.

    Get Anderson starting for Jiminez for sure. Would also sacrifice one of your United players for Wan-Bissaka who would have a chance of a clean sheet and spreads your risk.

    Heaton

    Wan Bissaka - Lindelof - Femenia - Bamba

    Salah - Hazard - Martial

    Aguero - Jimenez - Aubameyang

    That front 6 better fire for me.

    Missed the last match due to illness but should be fine for Monday.

    Currently thinking if I should bring him in for Kane or nah, no City players.

    Looks it at the moment. Hennessy making nazi salutes can't have helped his cause either.

    That said it would be hilarious if you ended up with the 2 non playing crystal palace goalkeepers :lol:

    Thoughts on a defender for 4.9?

    Got a good run out of Lovren but need to drop him now with that injury

    Currently have Robertson, Laporte, Wan Bissaka, Chilwell, Lovren

    Thinking of Lovren --> TAA
    and Chilwell ---> Lindelof/Alternative
