When your S**thouse XI beats your normal team, you can take solace in the fact it was a freaky week! That’s exactly what happened for me this week with a S**thouse score of 43, 8 more than my normal team. Junior on the other hand played it right with a superbly poor score of 29 in his S**thouse XI.
Overall ranks for the two teams are:
Let’s look at Junior’s team from gameweek 17 first.
Fabianski (2) – A 4-0 battering at home. Shame he made 6 saves.
Zabaleta (6) – Yet another clean sheet against the big boys.
Ogbonna (7) – Averaging just under 8 points against three top teams!? He’s got to go!
Dunk (2) – A double for the captain at Wembley.
Zanka (1) – A booking in a 3-1 defeat to the champions.
Fletcher (2) – The Potters fail to score against in-form Burnley.
Romeu (1) – A single as the Spaniard is hooked off at half time.
Gueye (3) – Still no sight of a return under Big Sam.
Cork (3) – Another 3 pointer as Burnley are inches away from the top 4!
Joselu (1) – Rafa’s men lose yet again as Joselu comes on late and his team fail to score.
Rodriguez (1) – A cameo off the bench and a scoreless draw away at Anfield earns him another blank.
Bench (8) – Barry is still out due to injury, while Barnes scores his second of the season. Cedric also comes back from injury to score 0.
Now onto this week’s line up:
Captain – Romeu captains the side against his former club.
Transfer – Ogbonna (OUT) -> Lejeune (IN)
Onto my team now:
Foster (10) – I think its safe to say Liverpool created an FPL storm with a 0-0 thriller at home to West Brom and Foster was a direct influence on that!
Tarkowski (6) – Why couldn’t it have been this guy who got injured in the 43rd minute instead of Ward?
Dunk (-2) – Captain Dunk didn’t score another OG but still a measly 1 point.
Zabaleta (6) – Another clean sheet. The wildcard may be needed soon!
Zouma (6) – A clean sheet even though Stoke conceded, and now he is injured. Brilliant!
Yacob (3) – Yacob comes in and does not do as expected!
Cork (3) – Jack Cork with a steady 3 points.
Gueye (3) – Another 3 pointer!
Fer (1) – Fer, bucking the trend with a single point. Well done lad.
Ayew (2) – Standard 2 pointer from striker #1.
Perez (1) – I can really depend on these two!
Bench (1) – Niasse and Hayden with no game time but I think this is a one off.
Now onto this week’s team:
Transfer – WILDCARD! A small but necessary reshuffle.
Captain – Mr reliable that is Yacob in midfield takes the armbrand for what is set to be a thrashing at the hands of United.
Good luck and save those reds for us!
