A very mediocre weekend for my team. Both captains failing to deliver, with Cabaye frustratingly having no involvement in Palace’s 5-1 victory over Newcastle and Kane picking up a yellow card in a 0-0 draw with Chelsea. De Bruyne, Lukaku and Vardy the only ones coming in with any significant points.
Dawson, Nyom, Van Dijk
Mahrez, Mane, Cabaye, De Bruyne
Lukaku, Kane (C), Vardy
Week points: 50
Total points: 867
Transfers left: 23
A certain Sergio Aguero again went off injured. Although it doesn’t look serious, its always a risk to bring him in straight away, especially in the Sky as its potentially 2 transfers wasted. I was also hiding behind the couch in the Arsenal game because of the highly owned Alexis Sanchez, who I dropped a couple of weeks ago for Kane. Its never good to see a player go off injured, especially as he is one of my favourite players, but I was relieved he only got an assist.
Over the weekend I ran a poll to see how many transfers you have left (see previous post). 45% of you have between 21-25 transfers left, which seems about right. If you have more that’s great. If you have less, you will have to be cautious in using your transfers over the coming months and avoid speculative punts.
Later today or possibly tomorrow, I will release a more in depth article on captaincy strategy over Christmas.
