Gameweek 36 is nearly upon us, but first lets take a brief look back to gameweek 35. It was another good gameweek for us, as we once again scored an above average score (58 points) and once again had those beautiful green arrows. Here is how the team looked:
So it wasn’t all doom and gloom with Myhill on the bench, as we have Schmeichel on the field picking up a respectable 7 points. Just in front of him we saw some rotten luck, with Duff getting a somewhat controversial red card, seeing him bring -2 points to the team. van Aanholt did a little bit better with 2 points, however it was Gary Cahill who scored a tidy 9 points!
In the middle of the park our Liverpool duo of Henderson and Sterling let us down big time, scoring just 4 points between them! Meanwhile Sanchez taught Hull City a footballing lesson, scoring fantasy football owners a steep 15 points (should have captained him!). Meanwhile, Hazard actually missed a penalty this week, but luckily enough for us he stuck the rebound in the back of the net, which was enough to see Chelsea win the title.
Last but not least… Our forwards. Giroud and Kane both surprisingly blanked which is unusual for them, especially seeing as Arsenal stuck 3 past Hull City last week. However Sergio Aguero continued his patch of good form, grabbing a goal and more importantly, 8 points for the team.
So down to the business:
Sterling (OUT) -> Cazorla (IN)
Sterling has been massively under performing in fantasy football terms, missing sitters left right and centre, which if he had scored them would have seen us rocket up the ranks! So, out he goes, and in comes Cazorla who has been playing well of late and does have a double gameweek coming up.
This week we start last week’s hero, Boaz Myhill. No doubt now that we have benched Schmeichel he will go and score a goal, save a penalty and pick up three bonus points! In front of him we start a back three of; van Aanholt, McShane and Hutton as all of them have relatively good fixtures. We have noticeably put Cahill on the bench this week as Liverpool will be pushing for that Champions League place and Chelsea may have their foot off the gas somewhat.
In the middle of the park we start; Hazard, Sanchez, Henderson and Cazorla. All have decent fixtures, with Cazorla and Sanchez having big double gameweeks coming up. With Chelsea having won the title they may start resting some of their bigger players that have tirelessly won them games this season, which does give some concern to the likes of Hazard. Only time will tell! If that is the case, sticking with Henderson may be wise, hence why we only got rid of one of the Liverpool midfielders this week.
Up top we start the usual suspects of; Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Olivier Giroud. All three are in okay form, the questionable omission here is Benteke, but with Aguero and Kane racing for the golden boot and Giroud with a double gameweek coming up, there isn’t any room in the team unfortunately. Captaincy armband is handed across to Sergio Aguero this week with a fixture at home to QPR.
