Well, the number 13 is cursed after all. Gameweek 13 didn’t go as planned, as our FPL Differentials XI accumulated just 30 points. Luckily, the player we transferred in, Diego Costa, scored and got us 12 points as captain! Since a couple of players have fallen out of favour with their respective managers and have lost their starting place, we have to rectify that soon. Also, because the team has done so badly this gameweek, we will be looking at taking a -4 hit to try and do some damage control!
Anyway, here is how the team looked at the end of the week:
This week, we will be taking out Amavi, who is injured, and bringing in the Toffees’ marauding right back. In Everton’s game against Aston Villa last week, he was playing more like an attacker than a defender. He also had the most number of successful crosses in the game! Their next opponents are Bournemouth, followed by a run of tasty looking fixtures. With Baines returning to the fold, Everton can only get better at the back.
Our 2nd transfer for this week (-4), will be Lens to Firmino. The former has lost his place in the Sunderland starting XI under Big Sam and the Liverpool attacker has had a couple of good games after returning from injury. With Liverpool’s fixtures also looking good going into December and with Mr. Bubble Wrap Sturridge out with a foot injury (AGAIN), the Brazilian playmaker will play a vital role in Klopp’s plans!
Coleman has an ownership percentage of 8.9%
Firmino has an ownership percentage of 1.5%
With that being said, here is how we line up this week:
Starting XI: Gomes (6.6%), Dawson (5.0%), Coleman (8.9%), van Dijk (3.6%), Firmino (1.5%), Deulofeu (2.5%), Bolasie (4.3%), Shaqiri (0.9%), Deeney (2.3%), Ayoze (1.8%), Costa (6.3%)
Bench: Stekelenburg (1.5%), Moses (0.4%), Reid (0.8%), Lovren (1.0%)
With a few low scoring weeks for Moses and West Ham playing the defensive minded West Bromwich Albion, he will be our 1st sub. 2nd sub will be Reid and 3rd sub is Lovren. Where keepers are concerned, Stekelenberg will be dropping to the bench and Gomes will be placed between the sticks!
We have a real captaincy dilemma this week, but we have decided to go ahead with Troy Deeney. He plays against Aston Villa this weekend and everybody knows how leaky they have been in recent games.
We hope gameweek 14 turns out to be better than the previous one. Till then, all the best and may the fantasy football gods smile upon your team!
