It must be the week of Halloween, because I had an absolute HORROR week. Last week I brought in Ross Barkley, hoping he’d be my differential now that he’s back from injury. Alas, he played a mere 26 minutes and got a single point. Other nightmares included Aguero captaining my side and getting 2 points (doubled to 4), Welbeck (1), Sterling (2) and Hazard (2). A total of 34 (average was 38) was easily my worst of the season, and meant red arrows all around for me.
GAMEWEEK 9 TEAM
GAMEWEEK 10 TRANSFER
There is always so much to think about when it comes to transfers, but this week I find myself thinking about not making one. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t really want to go onto the site and have to view my points haul from last week again. There is a few differentials that have caught my eye, being a Spurs supporter – Ryan Mason has caught my eye, he has played the last 339 of a possible 360 minutes for the north London club. At 5 million – he’s worth a look. Didier Drogba has had me wondering too, if Costa is unavailable again, the Ivorian will be facing a QPR side on the back of 3 goals in his last 3 games, and at 6.2 for a Chelsea striker, he may very well be a steal. Other players worth a mention for being in my transfer thoughts are: Oscar (Chelsea 8.3), Chambers (Arsenal 4.6), and Chamberlain or Cazorla (Arsenal 6.4 and 8.2).
All roads lead to Costa, as usual. I will wait and see if the Chelsea striker is fit or not to play against Queens Park Rangers. If he is declared fit, I will bring Costa in for Aguero, and next week I’ll do Aguero in for Costa, as City play QPR. If Costa is not fit, I will not make any changes and have 2 available next week, in which case my side will look like this:
Not as tough as usual this week, with the Manchester derby taking place – players like Aguero and Di Maria can be avoided. The only real contenders for the arm band this week are Costa (If fit and I bring him in), Hazard, Welbeck and Pelle. I have decided to go for Costa if fit, if he’s not – I will stick with the Chelsea theme and give Eden Hazard the honour of leading my side this week. Danny Welbeck will get vice captaincy.
Will Costa be fit? Should I rather play Siggy instead of Di Maria? And who would your captain be? We love to hear from you, so let us know your thoughts.
