Bakar's Gameweek 7 Team Review

It seems like an eternity ago, but I decided to wildcard at the eleventh hour in the previous Gameweek. I had triple Man United, and with doubts regarding the availability of my players and the lack of a decent bench, I thought it would be a good opportunity to wildcard.

I accumulated 60 points which meant that I achieved my best Gameweek rank of the season. I had a Gameweek rank of 186,239 and my overall rank rose from 410,506 to 167,238. Needless to say, I am extremely happy with how things have gone as the wildcard has brought my season back on track.

A large part of that was down to the fact that all three of the Manchester United assets that I sold on wildcard flopped while the differentials that I brought in performed very well. César Azpilicueta (£6.1m), Raul Jimenéz (£7.5m) and Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) were the star performers for me. Neither of these were owned by more than 10% of FPL managers at the start of last Gameweek, which is why I shot up the ranks.
