Week 6 wasn’t great and before it began I didn’t think I’d be relying on a clean sheet from Mee to help save my week. I scored 73 (-4) in a week that saw the average at 45 which wasn’t too shabby at all. Captain pick was pretty spot on and my Arsenal boys came back in to form.
My immediate transfer this week was Bony out. Mark Hughes hasn’t exactly been praising his work rate and play so far and he has disappointed. His replacement is Defoe who last week made it in to the top ten BPL scorers list of all time. He’s a quality player that will always score goals and despite Sunderland looking awful he is the sort that when he gets a chance scores more often than not. He’s already netted 4 this season and plays against WBA, Stoke, West Ham, Bournemouth and Hull in 5 of his next 6 games.
My team selection was pretty straightforward with the hardest decision being between Love, Mee & Amat. I opted for the former because even though he’s not a regular I’d rather. A point from him than a potential minus score from Mee or Amat who could concede big numbers is my punt even though Mee did me proud last week.
Captaincy was a tough one, everything is telling me to go for Aguero. His form and his ridiculous record against Spurs means he will be a popular pick yet again and for a good reason. Alexis is another who has been playing up too and been playing rather well lately. But I’ve gone for Lukaku. Before you laugh too hard let me make my case; Aguero blanked midweek and Spurs will provide a tougher task. As for Alexis he could be shifted wide or start from the bench (even though I doubt either). As for Lukaku, he’s rested midweek, he plays a Palace side who aren’t that solid at the back & they’ll be without their captain Dann. It’s a risk early on but hey, ho. Good luck all.
