Got 2 FT this week. I am thinking about swapping out Mount + Abraham > Ward-Prowse and Rashford.

Southampton have a good run of games and Rashy in great form. Change my mind.

Just did Abraham > Ings before he rises. Gives me enough to upgrade Martial to Son next week if he doesn't perform

Didn't Abraham say he's fine and it's just a small knock? Bit knee jerk to get rid of him so quickly.

I'd be going for Jiminez over Ings. Will wait til tomorrow to decide. Could easy see them saying it's something and nothing and him still missing the weekend and midweek game though.

All relative. For me it's time to move on. My squad was way too template. Got him cheap, made my money, time to invest in other areas (Spurs) and downgrade to Jimenez/Ings who are just in as good of form and lesser owned.

Think it's a mistake to move Tammy on, especially if you don't have any Chelsea mids. I can afford for him to miss a game.

Will just put Cantwell first on the bench as he could easily rack up another double figure haul against Emery's woeful Arsenal. I can see them losing and him getting sacked this weekend actually.

Kane captain.

I sold Aubameyang the other day.

Bet he bags a shit load now with the new manager bounce.

Switched out the ever-awful figure of Wesley for Ings who'll provide cover for Abraham.

Next week De Bruyne and James (tricky fixtures) are leaving for Pulisic and Maddison.

Yeah he's out for tomorrow, said they will know more on Monday.
This is annoying. But I dare say most of us have got major wad tied up in him if it's a game or 2. Just typical there are 2 games so quick back to back!

Yep. Also, my three subs all play top 6 teams, plus the uncertainty over Mount starting now. Tempted to go Pulisic and Jimenez.

Mount will start. Chelsea dont look the same without him and I think Frank has noticed.

Feck it. I've got rid of Tammy for Jiminez. Can't risk missing out on 2 games.

I ended up getting rid of him too, it's too risky keeping him around when there are 3 games coming up quickly. Plus I didn't have Vardy so made the decision much easier.

Glad I got a parting gift from sterling. He's going out this week. 1 goal here and there isn't worth the money spent on him.

I was going to drop VVD because Liverpool keep letting in goals. Fortunately, I didn't have a spare free transfer this week :D

Should I still do it, swap him for a cheaper option?

Swapped Sterling for DeBruyne, which worked out well and gives me money in the bank to upgrade elsewhere.

With VVD money, I could get e.g. Son.

Work league leader has triple captained Schmeicel this week :lol:

Goes to show how fecked the start of this season has been for FPL. It's finally returning to normality so these clowns will drop like flies.

Watch him save a pen and keep a clean sheet now.

37pts with 4 to go including Vardy (captain)

Vardy, Soyuncu, Jiminez & Lord Lundy still to play.

Just a clean sheet will bag him 15 more points than when I captained Sterling for what should have been a home banker haul v Southampton!

Alli for Sterling seems like a no brainer now. Wanted to do that before this week but hesitated too long.

To be fair captaining a goalkeeper against a poor team isn’t that bad. You get almost guaranteed 18 points out of this. With attacking players you never know, most people in my league have already used triple captains on attackers against teams like Southampton and Watford at home and did not get anything out of it, mostly.

Alli vs Son... Think I'm going to save an extra free transfers and go for Son.

That Ings goal saving my bacon somewhat. 28 with 4 to play.

Dunno about guaranteed. Plenty of teams will leak a goal against poor opposition. Leicester may be the best bet for it at the mo to be fair.
Surely it'd make more sense to captain a fullback if going this route though?

Not too bad today anyway with 22 so far. All 3 of my City players returned. Mane didn't which is fine as everyone has him. Pope didn't which isn't far off expected.

Jiminez, Vardy, Maddison, Chilwell, King Lundstram, and Baldock still to play. Could be big (probably won't be).

True, captaining defender from the same team would be much better.

Can’t complain about this weekend. Will have 30 points from 30 players, what sucks is that I have Willems and Dunk on the bench when both scored but it wasn’t really a weekend where you would expect either to return more than 1 point normally so I don’t blame myself for leaving them out of the team.
Martial (C), James, Rashford, Vardy, Soyuncu and Lundstram left. Should go above 50 with a bit of luck which will be awesome.

Sold Sterling and Mount for Alli and Son. All aboard the José train. Worried about Abraham but hopefully he's back soon - the fact that Chelsea didn't score means that Lampard might be more inclined to rush him back.

Might be time to get off the Chelsea train. Alli/Son look like musts right now. Keeping an eye on Palace as well, Zaha's delivered in the past two games, great fixtures coming up.
