    No worries on that first goal.

    Unbelievable that Cazorla didn't take.
    Yeah got out of jail with a second goal from Sanchez too, Rondon an unlikely hero for me too

    If Lukaku has a goal and assist from that half, I'm rage quitting.*

    Surely that's going to go to Bolasie, though.*

    Debate from dubious goals panel should be whether there's sufficient evidence to award it to Lukaku rather than sufficient evidence to take it away.

    That goal is worth 14 points to Lukaku as captain. Sickening. *

    My wildcard draft has Aguero out and Sterling out with KDB in. Sterling wasn't performing so was going to switch to KDB. Now I'm not sure any more. Not having Aguero is fun as it gives me a better overall team. Lukaku, Costa and Ibrahamovic up front.

    Loving the variety in teams but got so many headaches now especially in regards to getting Aguero back or not.

    41 points from Lukaku in two weeks, not a bad stand in for Aguero :lol: Really pains me to take him out but it has to be done. City are scoring for fun at the moment, Aguero limits the rest of your team but you'd be mad not to bring him back.

    53 points with Valencia, Benteke & Ibrahimovic to play tomorrow

    Been looking into whether going without Kun is a viable option. Keep arriving at the same conclusion, that going without Ibra is a far safer differential, and still gives you £3-4m extra to play with. I'll maybe thing again if Ibra hits 2 or 3 tomorrow, maybe.

    Do you really want to be on the sore end of that 48 point week that's in the post

    I thought about this but Zlatan has 63% ownership and is fixture proof. As soon as he has an easy fixture (e.g Stoke at home in a couple of weeks) everyone is going to captain him. If he even scores 1 goal in that game it's going to have a huge impact. Just for comparison, the next highest owned outfield player is Hazard with 33% and that'll drop considerably this week as everyone on FFS is wildcarding him out.

    Not worth the risk for me. Especially when Costa gets booked every game and we all know how inconsistent Lukaku is.

    Anyone who owns Aguero will surely captain Aguero week in, week out. I don't think there's an Ibra/Aguero fixture pair that would sway me.

    And Lukaku looks a slightly different prospect under Koeman. I saw him smile earlier

    They rotate very well i'd say, at least for the next 5 games

    Swansea (A) - Aguero
    Stoke (H) - Zlatan
    Everton (H) - Aguero
    Southampton (H) - Aguero
    Burnley (H) - Zlatan

    I'm done already. I'll be (C) Aguero every week. I don't have any problem with the fixtures that Aguero has the way that team are playing at the moment. Form over fixtures and all that. Besides, Lukaku has CPL and WHU in those weeks, so there's a totally adequate back up. *

    This week:

    Cazorla ---> Chadli
    Ibra -----> Aguero

    My teams a sea of yellows, but it's all just knocks

    Looks like my first 11 next week will be

    Foster (Jak)
    Valencia, Baines, Walker (Amat, Collins)
    KdB, Hazard, Chadli, Snodgrass (Capoue)
    Aguero, Lukaku, Benteke

    I'm not ready to sack Hazard off yet. Should be able to do Walker to McCauley and Hazard to Sanchez, next week, so long as Sanchez only rises by .1 this week. And I still don't trust Sterling. KdB is the man with all the dead ball duties and that'll make itself known soon enough.

    Will Lukaku keep that goal and assist? I look a bit poor on points if he doesn't..

    39 with 2 to play.

    When are people going to use their wildcards?

    Think most people have already played theirs :lol:

    They won't take the points off him now, so you're safe.

    My team isn't terrible just defence needs changing.. Stones has been a terrible option since Man City seem to dominate + score loads of goals but always concede one :rolleyes:

    Sweet! Forgot Lukaku was getting bonus points too. Now up to 47 with 3 to play
    I guess most have Ibrahimovic to play today so need him to do badly.
