An under average score wasn’t quite what the Differentials XI were after.
Here is how the team looked at the end of the gameweek:
So as mentioned, last week’s wildcard proved not to be overly successful but I’m still hopeful in it proving to be the right decision given the line up we have at our disposal this time out.
There were noteable performances from both keepers and 2 of our defenders, but it wasn’t much to shout about. However, being set up with 3 more chips to use and 2 double gameweeks to come in the next 2 weeks, the team is still in good shape.
With that being said, here is how the team lines up for the coming gameweek:
Starting XI: Forster (4.3%), Fuchs (5.4%), Monreal (4.5%), Vertonghen (6.6%), Mahrez (8.2%), Mkhitaryan (2.5%), Tadic (2.2%), Sane (6.4%), Chadli (1.4%), Gabbiadini (7.8%), Giroud (2.8%)
Bench: Lloris (8.0%), Deeney (5.5%), Blind (4.9%), Evans (4.3%)
The first thing to note is that we are still undecided which chip we will be using this week, however on the face of it, 1 double gameweek fixture doesn’t look that exciting until you see we have 5 players featuring in those games! Southampton’s Fraser Forster, Dusan Tadic and Manolo Gabbiadini face Liverpool while Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud have United, before the 2 sides play each other on Wednesday. The only thing that might bring us back down to earth is that Giroud is unlikely to start both games and Gabbiadini got dragged off after 50 odd minutes against Hull! Hey ho, don’t let that bring us down.
Looking at the rest of the squad that have the regular single fixture, it looks like this could be the week to see us back into the top 1 million. Christian Fuchs has Watford at home and Jan Vertonghen‘s got the Hammers away. Spurs are on an amazing run while Shakespeare’s managed to change the form of the Foxes for the better. Doesn’t make for bad reading.
In midfield, the single gameweekers are Riyad Mahrez, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Leroy Sane and Nacer Chadli. All have tasty looking fixtures but I can see Henrik getting rested with Mourinho having one eye on the Europa League. If that is the case, Evans will step in off the bench. The player who looks to have the most potential for me is Sane up against the resurgent Palace who, fair play to them, have hired the correct manager to keep them in the league. With the top 4 race tightening up, I reckon City will roll over Palace with the Eagles seemingly safe.
