After a bumper weekend last time out I’m looking to hang on to my new found place among the elite top 100. A big Belgium and a small Argentinian dominate my thinking in wake of the weekend’s fixtures.
Dawson, Nyom, Van Dijk
Mahrez (C), De Bruyne, Ramsey, Alli, Coutinho
Overall points: 1069
Overall rank: 82
Transfers remaining: 20/40
Money in the bank: 3.5mil
Transfers and captain strategy
I’m locked into Mahrez captain as the league leaders square up to Everton at Goodison Park tomorrow. This match also holds my biggest fear – Romelu Lukaku. I hate going without players that are highly owned and in form, but it was a risk I had to take to get Ramsey and Mahrez in as captains last weekend. With the Belgium also sitting third in the captains poll, he has the potential cause my rank to plummet, I’ll just have to hope Mahrez can outpoint him tomorrow afternoon.
I’ll then switch my captain to Coutinho ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Watford in the hope that Klopp’s men can break down a resolute Watford backline. This leaves me with a decision as to whether to bring in my pick of the week as captain for the Monday night match up against fellow title contenders Arsenal.
Its a big decision and one I will probably leave until the last minute. Apart from the possibility of another injury, my main concern here is that Aguero will be rested the following weekend when he has a plum home tie against Sunderland. Pellegrini may decide to wrap him up in cotton wool as they face League leaders Leicester 3 days later. It’s one to ponder over the weekend, and I’ll probably wait until I see the line ups on Monday night.
