    Ibra (c). His assist is beyond a joke.*

    With my WC I might go Capoue as my fourth midfielder. But not sure that's wise because there are no expensive defenders I really want.

    Already drafted in all the price risers tonight 😂. Lamela, Terry and Hazard have been sold. Payet gone but will potentially get him back if I can fit him in. Four assists in the two games I've owned him.
    Guess who dropped Payet exactly 2 games ago?
    In fairness I got Sterling instead so I can't say it's too bad.

    That's exactly the position I'm in - all the defenders suck balls except for Spurs ones. I'd get Milner if he was changed to a defender simply because of his rate of assists and the fact he takes penalties.

    No idea what to do in midfield but I'm probably gonna need an Everton player.
    It's gonna take a while but I guess the beauty of a wildcard is you can change whatever you want during the week so no injury concern.

    I was right in guessing Stoke would be leaky but Benteke as my captain completely failed! 4 goals and he didn't even get a damn assist.

    66 points this week, much needed improvement from 29 last week lol. Although I don't wish injury on anyone, Kane getting injured makes the decision of getting Aguero back easier.

    Only 12 points off 2nd but 31 off top spot, Pique Blinders opening up a lead. Any ideas who that is?

    I was in the same boat but at least you have Lukaku

    We drew on our H2H but only because you took a points hit!!
    My team is absolute garbage right now, it's definitely WC time

    sr90.

    I can't even bear to look at the table after that week. Think I moved down to third (but probably lower). On my wildcard but bloody Aguero is rising tonight! Absolute disgrace fplers are.

    Baller.

    I'm kind of gambling on Aguero this week and not bringing him in, although he'll be in next week. Hopefully he doesn't rise above 13.

    Yeah hate how people don't wait til after the press conferences are done, kind of forces your hand if price rises and falls are going to affect your transfers. Hazard has already bloody dropped twice, he's only blanked the last two weeks and on another day could have returned points in the Swansea game.

    Wildcarded, 2 weeks of 40 points forced my hand a bit. Gambling on dropping Ibra too, currently going with

    Foster
    Walker, Williams, McAuley
    Coutinho, Capoue, Bolasie, Antonio, De Bruyne
    Costa, Icheanacho

    Subs : Friend, Wasilewski, Aguero.

    Planning to sub Icheanacho out after this week once Aguero is back...

    Isn't Aguero back this week?

    The game says suspended until Saturday, which is a bit confusing as to whether or not that means he can play or not. I thought he'd only missed 2 games so far though so I'm working on the basis he's out this weekend too.

    No, he also missed a cup game. Nacho will likely be benched, though no guarantee *

    Ah, thanks, I'd forgot about that. Definitely going to take Nacho out, just not sure whether or not to gamble on Rashford getting regular starts when I can afford Defoe or Negredo in budget

    I've gone absolutely crazy with my WC.

    Still a way to go before I finalise but currently have Aguero, Lukaku and Costa up front with KDB in midfield. Everton are just too good to ignore right now and KDB is absolutely unreal.
    The only downside is no Ibra, but United are barely scoring and those mentioned above are doing so well.

    You would think that means I have no money left but there are so many cheap players like Snodgrass, Capoue and Fer getting some solid points.

    Anybody know if Shaw's injury is anything to worry about?

    Minor groin injury but I suspect he'll be rested against Leicester to ensure that he doesn't aggravate it.

    I really wouldn't go with all those 3 in midfield, that's asking for trouble.

    Yeah I don't have him anyway so it's all good

    Well midfield is the weak point - I have KDB and Firmino since they both get a lot of points, and the rest are cheaper options as a result of having 3 expensive strikers up top.
    Snodgrass takes penalties and is the source of most Hull goals. My defence isn't bad either so I'll generally be playing 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 anyway depending on fixtures.

    Last season there were barely any strikers worth having and points came from midfield - this time it'll be the opposite.

    Firmino's effectively a striker anyway when he plays. I've brought him back in to help fund Aguero. On the subject of budget midfielders though Iwobi is an absolute steal at 5.8m if he's nailed on.

    I think Janssen from Spurs could be a viable option if Kane is out for 8 weeks as rumoured, he's only 7.8m.
