Last week was a return to green arrows for the Differentials XI! Here’s how the team looked at the end of the week:
Coleman somehow eclipsed his previous gameweek tally of 12 with 15 big ones. Luiz, Dawson and Forster managed a clean sheet each too to make a 34 points return from 4 defenders! Captain Ozil managed an assist but it was the defenders that really stole the show. 58 point; a decent week which saw the side move to 700k overall.
Onto this week and I’m applying the ‘if it ain’t broke’ rule. No changes. However, Giroud is currently above the 10% threshold, although falling in ownership so we will see where he’s at come the deadline.
Starting XI: Forster (4.7%), Luiz (4.1%), Dawson (1.3%), Coleman (7.4%), Pedro (5.9%), Mkhitaryan (2.3%), Willian (4.3%), Ozil (7.3%), Giroud (10.5%), Rondon (9.0%), Benteke (5.2%)
Bench: Stekelenburg (2.2%), Shawcross (1.8%), Rose (9.5%), Pereyra (0.3%)
Forster’s away to Swansea, who have been picking up a bit since the arrival of Clement but still present a decent prospect of a clean sheet. Other chance of a clean sheet is Dawson away to Middlesborough, while Luiz and Coleman have harder games away to Liverpool and Stoke.
The midfield have slightly easier fixtures this time out. Mkhitaryan has Hull who seem to be resigning themselves to the Championship after cashing in on Livermore and Snodgrass. Ozil is retaining the armband against Watford who suffered an FA Cup shock exit. Pedro and Willian have Liverpool who are really on a downturn of form. If the lose against Chelsea, some Pundits claim that the title race is over.
For once, all strikers have fixtures where a goal is likely. Rondon has Boro, Giroud has Watford and Benteke has Bournemouth. All 3 have leaky defences and big physical strikers thrive off the lack of confidence in defences.
