Green shoots of hope burst through the surface of my fantasy season last weekend as patience in players such as Werner, Jimenez and Foden finally paid off across my fantasy teams. Salah's solitary goal was good enough for the teams I own him in, but also decent for those that didn't given his premium price and the players I owned instead. I have been reasonably comfortable without the Egyptian King in FPL and FanTeam so far this season; this weekend however is a different matter with his ownership and captaincy levels likely through the roof with his plum home time versus a weakened and porous Sheffield United. That said, I'm not going to blow my team up and take hits to get him in just to follow everyone else. I am fairly hopeful that my likely captain of Bruno Fernandes or potential new recruit Harry Kane can potentially match his output whilst I also have the 'cover' of both the Reds' full backs. If the stars align, I could come out of this week, like the last, with a decent score to then look forward to getting De Bruyne back in, whilst also stocking up further on West Ham and Aston Villa assets ahead of their supreme fixture runs. If not, hey-ho, but I'm playing my own game this season and am happy to face the consequences if it doesn't go to plan. I saw BIG green arrows across all formats last week, fingers crossed for a repeat performance!
