Didn’t get round to the usual “All Set” article this week. But with just one big decision left, I share my thoughts as it promises to be a crucial.
2 transfers left
I had strongly considered leaving in the young player of the year. But, after much deliberation, I think there are more points on offer if he makes way.
Firmino / Fabregas. 3 possible routes here and they all depend on the Liverpool line up tomorrow. If Firmino starts (I don’t think he will), then I’ll transfers him in for Sanchez. This frees up funds to take Alli out for Fabregas. This route has the most captains, but I’m not 100% set on Firmino as an option.
Smalling/ Sturridge. If Firmino doesn’t start and Sturridge does, I’ll make the move for the Liverpool frontman. If this happens, I can’t transfer in a Chelsea player for Alli due to lack of funds. With United still fighting in the league, an extra fixture and a resolute defence, I hope Smalling can grab at least 2 clean sheets for the run in.
Smalling / Defoe. If neither of the Liverpool duo start, I’ll only be drafting in Smalling. I’ll then look to use the other transfer to get Defoe in for the last couple of matches. Another option here is to bring in Fabregas for Mahrez on Monday instead.
With Robles benched and a Sanchez blank its been a slow start to the week. I’m hoping whichever route I take will give immediate returns. Although my main focus is holding position in my cash leagues, I still harbour faint hopes of getting that illusive top 10 position.
