After a double gameweek there’s always a bit of a comedown, especially when you can’t even field 11 in the next round of fixtures. Here’s how the Differentials XI looked at the end of the week:
So with the FA Cup clashing with this set of games, a lot of the big teams have blank gameweeks causing carnage amongst FPL players. Last time out in the DGW, I wasn’t expecting anything particularly good so wasn’t overly hurt with the 41 points scored. It’s always a bonus when your captain is the highest points scorer in the team; a lot of people scoffed at the fact I captained Shawcross but I had a feeling Man City would choke at home to Stoke.
Onto this week and trust me, it won’t too take long to get through the boys as there’s only 9 of them! Here’s how the Differentials XI look for the upcoming gameweek:
Starting XI: Robles (1.1%), Fonte (3.5%), Funes Mori (3.7%), Dawson (1.4%), Ozil (5.8%), Mkhitaryan (2.1%), Milner (5.3%), Barkley (7.7%), Chadli (2.2%), Carroll (3.5%), Rondon (6.4%)
Bench: Forster (4.1%), Shawcross (1.3%), Giroud (2.8%), Luiz (5.1%)
The only positive about this week is the fact I have 3 players for Everton coverage. Robles, Funes Mori and Barkley better all star in a 6-0 thrashing of West Brom with Barkley getting a double hat-trick with 6x Funes Mori assists. That’s all that I can hope for to not see a red arrow. As you can probably tell, I may have hit desperation at this point. To make matters worse, 6 out of my 9 players are playing in the same game. Dawson, Chad KO and Rondon are my West Brom representation. So a 6-0 either way or a 4-4 please. Not too much to ask for, right?
My final three players are Fonte, Carroll and Milner. Fonte’s doubtful (gulp) but should play alongside Carroll away to Bournemouth. Milner faces Burnley so let’s hope for a clean sheet and a penalty!
All the best guys; no matter how this week goes, just think “I did better that the differentials!”.
