Another below-average week for the Differential XI with my rule around transferring out the players who exceed the 10% ownership threshold starting to pinch with me having to keep constantly keep injured and out-of-form players. I’m going to take a few hits to refresh the squad and hopefully get it back on track!
This week my captain struck well with Jiminez (11.8% owned) bidding me farewell with a nice haul. The only other returns were from the fantastic Soyuncu (9.6% owned), the benched Lanzini (1.3% owned) and Haller (4.4% owned) with the remainder disappointing. Otamendi (4.6% owned) and Mahrez (4.2% owned) must have missed Pep’s birthday or something because from positions of strength and points a month ago, they have had a complete fall from grace and cannot get a league game between them.
I will replace Jiminez with the returning Lacazette, who at just 1.7% ownership has a nice run of fixtures after Leicester this weekend.
I will also replace Lanzini with the Leicester’s Perez (6.1% ownership) who have a sea of good fixtures until well into the New Year. Whilst the hattrick may have been a one-off, the intent is always there with him and I feel he could turn his potential into regular points as he did so well at Newcastle.
Finally I will switch out Mahrez for Willian (2.6% ownership) who again has low ownership but a strong run of fixtures going into January. He seems to be back in favour and constantly looks a threat.
I will captain Perez against a struggling Arsenal. Here is the GW12 team:
Good luck everyone for GW12 and may your differentials bring you green arrows!
