    Wouldn’t use two FT’s on a goalkeeper.

    Don’t see anything wrong with Fabianski. You don’t get him for clean sheets really - it’s save points you rely on, sprinkled with the odd clean sheet in which he’ll invaraibly get 9 points or so as he tends to be in the bonus due to his number of saves.

    Maybe Duffy? Have to tough games then a decent run and he gets a goal here and there.

    Or Cedric. Southampton are a bit better defensively now and if he plays, he may get some assists.

    Wan Bissaka - Digne - Robertson

    Salah - Pogba - Felipe A. - Fraser - Richarlison

    Auba -Wilson


    Bench: Doherty, Holebas, Jiminez.

    Bench 1 of Wilson, Fraser or Jiminez.

    Bournemouth away at Everton
    Jiminez away to City

    Fraser smashed a haul on my bench last time, Wilson has a 75% yellow flag, and Jiminez tends to get something away at the big teams.
    Awkward

    (rest of front 6 is Salah - Richarlison - Pogba, Kane - can't leave any of these out)

    Same 7 out of front 8 as me. You have Auba, I have Kane.
    I see you're going for the Bournemouth pair over Jiminez? I'm weighing that up

    Yeah, but since I am chasing points, need to make some short term moves to gain few points. Fab isn't fetching points against Arsenal, so wanted to punt on Kepa's CS against Newcastle.

    So I've seen my mate's team, who's the leader of my ML and said we have really similar teams now.

    Differentials -
    He has Pereira, I have Digne
    Richarlison - Sane
    Kane - Aub

    A bit annoying but I can deal with that I think. Auba is pretty sideways from Kane, although maybe slightly less reliable. Digne and Pereira are surely pretty sideways. Sane is better than Richarlison and has a chance of hauls if City sort it out, which they surely will.
    Probably need to look for another differential too. Maybe Rashford in for Jiminez which I was struggling to do. Still probably sideways though.

    Might have known this would happen if I left Flappy on the bench.

    37 from 5. Decent enough start. AWB with 3 bonus points despite them losing 2-1. Wtf?

    Was also surprised by this. My defence has been good - AWB with 4, Alisson with 6 and Robertson with 9 points. Aubameyang and Mitrovic terrible.

    I’ll be happy with 45 points this weekend.

    yeah who would have thought before the match that the league topscorer would blank against a leaky defense missing few players.

    Wasn’t a great transfer mate. As I said when Fabianski gets a clean sheet he’s likely to pick up 9 points or so as he’s always in the bonus (or through saves). Even if Arsenal scored he could easily have got 6 saves which would have been 4 points, whereas Kepa is only getting 6 points at most against Newcastle. Wasn’t worth the cost of two transfers.

    Amazing week so far but need Hazard to score for it to matter. Despite all the other players returning if the captain blanks it doesn’t count for anything, has such a big impact on the game.

    Chelsea conceding again, I can't be arsed with Alonso anymore. Chelsea look clueless in attack, think I'll bin Hazard too for Salah.

    Yeah I dropped Alonso for Luiz. Two assists in two games, much cheaper option.

    Hazard is worth holding on to though but Salah is the must have at the moment.

    I'm barely clinging on to top 10k status. 41 points so far. Average is 29 but 42 in the top 10k.

    Good news is I've got 2 free transfers and options for next week. Currently favouring Aguero and Jimenez for Auba and Wilson but in no rush to commit to anything.

    Salah looks like a set and forget as captain at the moment. Every one who doesn't have him will be getting him in this week for sure.

    With bonus points it’s 54 points from 6.

    Would have been 60 from 6 if I had captained Salah over Hazard. Very irritating as was the obvious choice.

    Need to decide whether to bin Hazard or Sterling for Salah.

    Any thoughts?

    Personally I did sterling simply because of rotation. I know overall sterling will probably get similar numbers to hazard but it's impossible to Captain sterling due to pep.

    Surprised to see Wan Bissaka get 3 bonus points for a 2-1 home defeat he hasn't assisted in.
    Similarly, Luiz, yes got an assist, but conceded and got a 3.

    However, will enjoy them.
    Also, Salah 3, Robertson 3 (how often do you get 3 from two in the same team!?), Fabianski 2

    14 bonus points! That'll do!

    Good question, this. I'm having the same dilemma. Comparable next 4 fixtures. Chelsea score little these days but everything goes around Hazard, City score plenty but the goals are spread. :houllier:

    You sure about that? I only got 1 point from him
