    Ugh didn't get as many price rises as I was hoping. Lot of players went up by 0.1 so no real benefit to me while wildcarding.

    Going through stats/form/fixtures at the moment so will post a proposed team for opinions..

    I'd downgrade Capoue to a 4.5 midfielder (or 4.4 if there are any, I haven't been following their prices) and upgrade Lenihan. Rest is fine.

    What do you think about Liverpool defence btw? I know you haven't kept a CS in god knows how long but your fixtures after you play us are just too good. I'm tempted to take a gamble on say, Lovren, rather than Stones who's turning out to be absolutely useless.

    My logic was that there have been 30 clean sheets in 140 possibly situations (70 games played so far) so the midfield/strikers will outscore the defenders and so I'd mostly play with 3 defenders and Amat is my switch out and so I don't need to spend money on my 5th defender?

    Gives me a defender and midfield player spare if I chose a 3-4-3 team?

    I'm just not convinced we'll keen any/many clean sheets? Defence hasn't been playing together that long. We play aggressive so always leave a chance open. I think we'll regularly score 2+ goals per game because of it but I'm not going to trust them.

    Clyne or Lovren would be the only ones to consider. Matip sometimes rotating out and Milner classed as a midfield player.

    Who's everyone giving the armband to this week? Aguero's been playing all over South America so I don't think he's as obvious a choice as normal.

    Walcott and Sanchez look interesting shouts.

    Thinking Costa as Leicester have been poor.

    Not taking the armband off Aguero unless he's injured.
    Everton have had a pretty mean defence so far this season too (guess that's what happens when you replace Stones with an actual defender.

    Thought I had settled on Sanchez but with not many Swansea players going on internationals and the new manager bounce.. maybe Swansea will do better than expected against Arsenal?

    Swansea have a very good record against Arsenal too. It's definitely not going to be an easy game for them.

    Looking at the fixtures I have a feeling this is going to be a poor week for most people.

    I've abandoned the idea of bringing Walcott in and definitely wont be Sanchez captain. I saw a very leggy Arsenal struggle against Burnley and although Burnley were stubborn, Arsenal were very poor, and i don't see Swansea as really inferior defensively to Burnley. Arsenal had played 6 games in 21 days and Burnley 3. Same story is happening here with Arsenal having played 6 games in the time Swansea played 4 and on top of that almost all Arsenal's outfield players have played an additional 90-180 mins internationally and traveled, whereas only 2 of Swansea's players did and they got fewer minutes. I expect Swansea to be bang up for this and full of energy and for Arsenal to be lethargic

    Arsenal play in the CL midweek too so potentially we could see a few players rested or taken off early?

    I'm glad I have built up a lead at the top because looking at my XI I can't see where the points will come from this week.

    I'm feeling pretty good about mine apart from Kun, Sterling and Sanchez, who probably occupy most decent teams anyway. Fielding Snodgrass, Chadli, Tekkers and Lukaku, and have opted for the frankly suicidal and overpriced Davies and Shawcross to accompany Walker in defence for the upcoming schedule.

    It's part of my new approach of trying to actually enjoy the game more by not making doing as well as i possibly can the primary and only objective. Massive punts is high on the fun list.

    Yea I was thinking the same lines but then Aguero traveled far for internationals and Koeman would've studied Spurs against Man City. Also Everton have had a mean defence.

    Firmino plays Man Utd so don't want to pick him.. Son plays WBA who are also pretty good in defence..

    No obvious candidates for me

    I'll be very surprised if Firmino doesn't get some attacking points against us.

    I've had him for a few weeks now - really should've captained him considering how poor Leicester are.

    Let's hope Aguero at least does something but Everton are far from pushovers.

    Every time he scores and i don't captain him lol. Let's hope he doesn't get a yellow card otherwise he'll be banned.

    At least we have him though - a lot of my rivals don't and a few have Willian who isn't playing today due to the unfortunate death of his mother.

    In fairness, Costa has seemed much more disciplined recently, although it only takes a second for him to get a yellow. Even if he gets banned for a game, I'd probably just bench him because he's the on-form striker this season.

    My hope is that City will be motivated to tear Everton apart after such a crushing loss to Spurs...

    Could do with an Aguero blank since a lot of people captained him.

    He's never, ever benched. This is an absolute nightmare.

    Son and Rose miss out too.*
