Good scores from Mahrez, Vardy, Alli and Kane left me feeling smug on Saturday evening. Unfortunately, my smugness and my brief time in the top 100 were short lived as a disappointing performance from Liverpool and Coutinho was followed by a Sergio Aguero blank.

After much deliberation over the weekend, I rolled the dice on Sergio Aguero and brought him in as captain for Coutinho. In hindsight, Ozil looked the man to go for. However the main reason for bringing in the Argentine was for the boxing day encounter with Sunderland, so I am hopeful he can produce the goods at the weekend.
Although I am happy with my team overall, the continued good performances of Ighalo and Ozil are hurting my rank. Im reluctant to bring the pair in given Ighalo’s poor fixtures (although that doesn’t seem to be stopping him) and Ozil’s threat of rotation over a busy Christmas schedule. Lukaku is another one I want, although he may make a reappearance in my team next week.
