Despite a double captaincy failure last time out, my team churned out a respectable points tally to ensure I didn’t drop in rank. With Aguero sidelined for 2 weeks, I look to shake up my team ahead of the weekend.
Total points: 228
38 transfers left
£1.0 in the bank
Are you ditching Aguero for just 2 games at the cost of 2 precious transfers?
I’m not sure, although I am leaning towards bringing Sanchez in at present. I’ll then switch Aguero back in for Defoe in a 3 weeks time. Taking this route I’ll miss Aguero at the liberty in a couple of weeks but get an extra match out of Defoe.
That’s currently plan A. The slight problem with going Sanchez is that he’s a very expensive forward, giving me no flexibility in the long term. As a result, I’m also contemplating a couple of other plans that may see me opt for Cazorla or Payet in a switch to 352. This would give me a lot more cash in the bank and greater flexibility later down the line.
Another option is to plump for a straight switch to Lukaku. Great fixtures and he scored a couple for Belgium this week, so could have his confidence back. That said, he hasn’t scored in the PL since March, so would be a risk.
Noble and Pieters will be gone very soon, most likely this weekend. I’m currently leaning towards Baines and Antonio as replacements. I know that Noble will score a pen if I make the move but I think Antonio is on for a great season now Bilic has come to his senses and stopped playing him at rightback.
I’m also trying to figure out how to get a Watford or Burnley player in ahead of their Monday night clash on the 26th September. A short term move for Capoue or Deeney could be on the cards if Gray gets banned.
Whoever I draft in for Aguero will be my captain on Saturday. I’ll then switch to Hazard on Sunday followed by Defoe as Sunderland play host to Everton on Monday night.
Not much movement at the top of the cash league with Sean Tobin’s “Detroit 442” sitting pretty on 252 points. In the free league, Abdul Rehman’s “Insane in DeBruyne” has shot into the lead with an impressive overall tally of 271 points – 26 ahead of Oliver Brown‘s “The Elf Army” in 2nd place.
