Gameweek 17 Team Review
Not a good gameweek and again the past couple of week's hard work undone. As planned I took out Alexander-Arnold and Connolly out early in the week as I had the exact money for Rashford and Kelly which allowed me to retain Robertson as Liverpool defensive cover... I feel a little unfortunate as I was 0.1m short of taking Robertson out then he gets rested! Thankfully, as most other people did, we had the early warning on this from FPL_Rockstar so I made a last-minute -4 to take Robertson out for Pereira who I had been eyeing up over the past few weeks. In the short term this didn't pay off with my double Lecicester defence conceding against Norwich but I am happy to him even against Man City where I think he could have some joy down the right wing. The second slice of bad fortune was D.Silva missing out against Arsenal who I am convinced would have scored some points had he played. This, coupled with De Bruyne (who Silva has been matching over the past few weeks) taking off saw a huge red arrow for me overnight. Thankfully Guaita put in another great performance for his third 8+ point haul on the trot so give me something to cheer about in an otherwise dire week with high scores all around me.
