Hello FPL Community,
Snap back to reality! Cant always have it your way, crazy Gameweek again with mostly Defenders getting the high points, a lot of Captain Blanks & a red arrow for most on the Monday. 🐝
Lets get to it,
GW2 Review. 📝
📊 65 Points
🌎 Overall Rank: 597,631
Above the average again but still a little red arrow but i wouldn’t look at rank to much so far..
I started well with Double Liverpool defence. Liverpool looked good against Burnley with Henderson making them tick over again, Salah was unlucky to be offside for the Goal, but they was still lucky Alison was on his heels to save a good chance by Burnley.
Was good to see Ings on the scoresheet again, but Villa still dont look right, be interesting to see in the next couple of weeks how they look.
I think as a non owner of Man City, i was very lucky the goals were spread across because otherwise it could have really hurt, looking to get some in soon when the fixture swing happens and hopefully we know peps more “nailed” picks.
Unfortunately my choice to go Differential with Watfords keepers Bachmann has not a good call so far with them conceding nearly every shot on Goal, i picked him as i thought he would get shot bonus and maybe the odd Cleansheet but it looks like Sanchez or Brentford Raya was the pick to be..
All of Sunday i was 💩 myself that Son and Bruno would absolutely go on a mad one and ruin my weekend lol, lucky they both Blanked and Salah ©️ got the extra an extra 4 points over him. 🤪
Monday was a shocker as West Ham carried on there early scoring form with the main 2 men in Benrahma & Antonio picking up most of the points, Benrahma is really giving me Lingard vibes of last season, but i don’t think it is sustainable and feel they will struggle when Europa starts.
Onto Gameweek 3.
Ive gone against my advice! I went early with transfers on the Sunday night after watching MOTD, i also see some of my players going down in price. Ill add links to the bottom for the websites i use for this. Basically this early on in the season if you have players in your team who are due a price fall and someone else is due a price rise it is worth using a transfer especially with 2 FT to get your team value up early doors. This season we are spoilt for choice on Premium options and this early making of money could mean later on you could sneak and extra one in.
So the transfers i done Sunday night was:
Out – Salah & Buendia ❌
In – Greenwood & Son ✅
Your all going to be looking at me funny with the Salah sale.. but hear me out, he has Chelsea next week who i dont fancy him against and as well Chelsea are my team so i want / have to back them. Also at the time i made the transfer there was all this mention about the International break and players having to isolate if they went to a Red list country (Salah being on of them players) so i thought i would jump on and get rid of him early for Son / Greenwood who have both been playing out of position as a Striker. As we know now Kane is staying at Spurs and apparently premier League players wont travel. I still am optimistic about the international break and can see what happened last year happening again, and with Kane back in Spurs i think it could help Son with there 2 good fixtures they have coming up.
My fear is that Benrahma carries on his form as i didn’t bring him in and he has already has 2 price rises this week! As i said in backing my gut here as i was tempted to take a -4 and get transfer out Barnes. I decided not to as i want to give him one more chance again Norwich.
Hoping for some more returns from my Strikers, hoping that Toney can get off the mark and get his first Premier League goal this weekend .
Lastly who to put the armband on? ©️
For me i brought it Son for the Watford fixture and am going to stick to my guns and go for him. They are at home and with or without Kane i still think Son will pick up some big points. If i didn’t have Son, it would be Antonio then Bruno, Antonio and West Ham are firing and with them at home to Palace i fancy him to score again, with Bruno he is kind of player who pops off in this games, but i have liked how Wolves have looked and i feel they have been very unlucky in there first 2 opening games.
