Last week we got an impressive 55 points and rose 350,000 places in the global rankings, and we really wanted to kick on from the good performance. Thankfully for us – we did.
An assist, 3 saves and two bonus points for Butland got our keeper seven points. A clean sheet and two bonus got Francis eight, while Aguero, Mahrez and Payet picked up assists. The hero’s were Ritchie, Mahrez, Hazard and Wilson, who all found the net for us.
A total of 69 points puts Team Leftbacks well above the average of 41. We climbed another 322 000 places which is absolutely brilliant. Meaning we’ve climbed over 670,000 places in two weeks. We find ourselves around the 131,000th place mark out of over 3.2 million people which we’re happy with, but we want to climb more.
GAMEWEEK 7 TRANSFERS
As we often mention, we hate making two transfers, but sometimes it pays off, as it did last week. This week, Benteke and Silva have got themselves injured, meaning we going to have to make two changes again.
Silva is going to be swapped out for Kevin de Bruyne. City have Spurs, Newcastle and Bournemouth in their next three fixtures. Benteke will be transferred out for Ighalo. As tempting as it was to bring in Martial, United have Arsenal, Everton and City after Sunderland this week. Ighalo has four goals in six games this season and has fixtures against Palace, Bournemouth, Arsenal and Stoke in his next four.
We have a feeling that with Costa being suspended – Hazard will attack more and is due a good game, thus getting our arm band. Aguero will be vice.
