If you’re new to the site, “ALL SET” is a regular weekly post that looks at the weekend to come. It will usually be posted on a Friday but as I’m away this weekend I’m getting it out early.
Dawson, Nyom, Van Dijk
Mahrez, Mane, Cabaye, De Bruyne
Lukaku, Kane (C), Vardy
Overall points: 867
Overall rank: 401
Transfers remaining: 23/40
Money in the bank: 0.5mil
I’m not expecting a great week, I’ll be very happy if I can maintain my rank. I have gone a few weeks without making a transfer and it shows, the team is in need of a refresh particularly in midfield.
Klopp’s new look Liverpool are looking very strong at the moment with a trouncing of Southampton in the League Cup last night. They also have some juicy fixtures on the horizon and I don’t want to miss out on them dishing out some drubbings over the next few weeks. The problem is that there are so many Liverpool options and picking one seems a bit of a lottery. That said, if I get confirmation Coutinho is fit in tomorrow’s press conference, then I may bring him in. Sturridge also caught my eye yesterday and jumps onto my Watchlist.
If I go for Coutinho it will be a double transfer with my pick of the week in exchange for Mane and Cabaye. I’ll be hoping Mane can give me a parting gift as Southampton play host to Villa on Saturday. This strategy will also give me a captaincy option for Liverpool’s Game Week 20 clash with Watford.
Coutinho, Alli, Sturridge, Aguero, Silva, Ozil, Hazard
Many of you will question Hazard’s inclusion here, but he was considered essential at the start of the season and he’s definitely one to watch over the coming weeks as Chelsea look to regain some form and have the fixtures to do it.
I’m locked into Kane for their trip to West Brom, hopefully Spurs can deliver against a good Pulis defence. I then plan to switch the captaincy to Lukaku for Monday’s match against Crystal Palace. This works out well as Everton travel to Norwich the following Saturday. If you haven’t seen it already, you can also check out my Christmas captaincy guide here.
The site has received 1,000 views and counting in less than a week! Thanks for all the support, hopefully we can slowly build the community over the coming months.
New captaincy Poll. It looks like many of you have the same captaincy strategy as me this week with Kane and Lukaku currently leading the new poll (see right hand side of screen, or bottom if you’re on a tablet/ phone).
