GW9 Review

Prior to the MUN – LIV match, I was set to drop 200k places. Thus, bringing into question my WC (used in GW8).

Fortunately, Salah saved my GW by amassing over 50% of my GW9 points. This gave me the smallest of climbs from 175k to 168k.

 

 

I wrote a thread about Phil Foden (here), and regret choosing Jimenez over the Englishman. Therefore, I am tempted to take a -4 to bring in the city asset for GW10.

Below are some key aspects I noticed during his performance vs Liverpool;

Foden’s average movements were in very advanced areas which eventually led to his equaliser in the game – this is also complimented with the amount of offensive touches in dangerous areas which is a pattern when Foden is adopted as the left attacker.

 

The Eye-test

Time and time again, Foden was making offensive runs to get attacking returns against a very good Liverpool side. I 100% expect the Englishman to continue this pattern in the coming fixtures.

 


Squad RAG Status

Each week, I will give a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) rating on the safety of the assets in my squad.

🟢  Green – Performing well/ certain keep

🟠  Orange – Wait and See

🔴  Red – Imminent departure

 

Ramdale

I see Ramsdale as one of the best 4.5m GK in this seasons game. He has performed well and is usually asked to make several saves per game behind an average Arsenal defence.🟢

Foster

The Watford man recently started the last two games which is fantastic for a 4.0m GK. I see him more as an enabler but, when ARS play more difficult teams, I may just start Foster in the hope that he plays 🟢

Alexander-Arnold

Unless TAA is unavailable for any considerable amount of time, he shall stay all season 🟢

Livramento

Having a cheap playing defender is always a blessing for FPL managers. Especially one that is as attacking as Tino, and his recent attacking returns have made a him a season keeper 🟢

Cancelo

He seems to have avoided “pep roulette” for the time being as the Portuguese has started every game so far this season – fantastic asset 🟢

Azpilicueta

Selected the Spaniard in my WC as Rudiger was unavailable. Super asset but will look to bring in a cheaper CHE player and use the extra money accordingly 🟠

Dias

Possibly the most “nailed” defender in MCI’s defence – He isn’t as exciting as the other assets, but will be a solid 6-7 points per CS 🟢

Raphinha

I have been disappointed with the Brazilian so far this season. He has had constant “niggling” injuries during the season and is on the ‘orange’ list of possible players to remove 🟠

Smith-Rowe

ESR is proving to be excellent value for money, the Englishmen was the constant threat in the game vs AVL and is one of the key creative assets in the Arsenal team 🟢

With his advanced positioning and offensive touches in GW9, FPL managers should consider starting ESR more often in the upcoming fixtures.

Salah

Season Keeper, that is all – his stats this season are incredible 🟢

Average stats per 90Salah
Goals1.11
Expected Goals0.77
Shots4.44
Shots on Target2.22
Attempted Assists2.44

Brownhill

Cheap enabler 🟢

Mbuemo

This is a classic example of “following the herd” with the BRE midfielder. I used the WC to bring the player in to allow myself to strengthen the defence. However, he will likely make way for Foden – especially after being subbed off with a tight hamstring in GW9 🔴

Jimenez

The Mexican has been returning since I transferred him in. However, with the likelihood of bringing in Son for GW12, it will be to the sacrifice of Jimenez in my team 🟠

Vardy

He replaced the injured Lukaku, and with his knee injury vs BRE – I will likely take him out and use the funds for Foden 🟠

Antonio

I intend to play the Jamaican till he “breaks” – an incredible asset when fit and firing 🟢


GW10 Preview

Just the one transfer this week and with 1.3m in the bank, I am 80% sure I will take a hit to bring in Foden this GW.

Before making any transfers, this is what the team looks like;

 

With more flags than the United States of America, I will be making changes this GW. However, I will wait until after the pressers on who is unavailable for their respective games before making the transfers.

Of course, this is subject to change but for updates, check out my Twitter rey_qur for my finalised team.

Good Luck with this GW and please leave your comments below.
