Gameweek 4 Review
It feels like deja vu with my team reviews every week constantly mentioning how insane the Gameweek just past was; I think so far Gameweek 4 has definitely taken the biscuit though. Tottenham hammering Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford, Leeds United outplaying Manchester City and Aston Villa handing out a good old 7-2 thrashing to the current champions.
For me personally, it was another good Gameweek in which my patience paid off. My score of 65 points was primarily made up of my captain Salah and Son whilst Alex McCarthy’s clean sheet and bonus were very welcome too. Every single other outfield player blanked with my highest scorer being Daniel Podence with a mighty three points. This Gameweek just went to show how important the captaincy decision is. It can paper over the cracks of a poor Gameweek which I believe mine was but decisions like captaining a reliable Salah and keeping a top premium asset like Son paid off.
Gameweek 5 Thoughts and Transfers
Looking at my team, again I don’t feel there is much that needs changing. My biggest weak link I believe is Daniel Podence and in hindsight maybe it was better to just have kept Soucek. His stats for a £4.9m midfielder are just amazing. I did get drawn into Wolves’ excellent fixtures and was put off by West Ham’s tough run. My defence is in good shape this week bar McCarthy who has a tough game against Chelsea away but you need to just hope for the best with these kinds of fixtures when you are rolling with a single playing goalkeeper.
De Bruyne is a doubt for Gameweek 5 but apparently if he is going to be out it's only for one game so I don’t see the point in getting rid as I will want him back as soon as he's fit again. I will start him and hope he plays; if not I have a decent bench this Gameweek I feel. Salah and Son I don’t need to comment on. Podence as I stated earlier is my only worry so my transfer this week may involve him. Mitrovic has a tough game away to the Blades but he's a 90 minutes man and is on penalties and at £5.9m I still feel he is good value.
Danny Ings is another one who has a difficult fixture but he is the type of striker that could score against any team with only one chance and his next three after Chelsea are good (EVE, avl, and NEW). Timo Werner has been such a frustrating own but I am giving him one last chance to show his worth. With Pulisic and Ziyech back I am hoping he can finally get on the scoresheet (preferably multiple times) in the Premier League. He has a good fixture in Southampton at home.
