A disappointing week saw the Differentials XI finish 5 points below average.
Here is how the Differentials XI looked at the end of the week:
The double Everton defence has been a big blunder and is starting to cost us with Coleman and Stekelenburg managing 1 point between them. Only Mustafi, Luiz and Bolasie returned points which saw the side fall down to 1.2 million in the rankings. Hopefully we can turn it around this week.
Onto this week’s team. 2 free transfers were at my disposal and I’ve opted to put my faith in Stoke City’s boys.
Cathcart (OUT) -> Shawcross (IN)
Lanzini (OUT) -> Shaqiri (IN)
Here’s how the Differentials XI look going into gameweek 10:
Starting XI: Stekelenburg (5.0%), Coleman (4.9%), Mustafi (1.6%), Shawcross (1.8%), Eriksen (5.5%), Pereyra (0.7%), Bolaise (5.6%), Nolito (1.6%), Shaqiri (4.8%), Ighalo (4.4%), Wilson (4.3%)
Bench: Forster (4.6%), Benteke (8.2%), Luiz (1.3%), Dawson (1.8%)
For whatever reason, Stekelenburg and Coleman remain. Don’t ask me why. Your safest money this weekend would be on no Everton clean sheet as that seems to be my luck recently. Mustafi away to Sunderland on the other hand looks promising. Newcomer Shawcross earns his spot in the team over David Luiz due to pulling in an impressive 20 points in the last 2 weeks.
A five man midfield is the approach once again. Eriksen is surely going to deliver soon although Ranieri has never lost to Spurs in 10 games as a manager so I may be disappointed with the Danish’s returns once again! Pereyra has one more chance this week. One more and that’s it. If he can’t produce against Hull, he’s out. Bolasie is performing well so despite a tricky fixture, I’m confident of a good display. Nolito failed to deliver in the Manchester derby and got hauled off early so I’m just hoping he starts to be honest! Shaqiri is the main man this week. Off the back of two excellent goals last week, surely he’ll be looking to keep up his impressive form.
Up top I’ve gone for Ighalo and Wilson. Both have better fixtures than the Belgian on the bench, Benteke, but I might start the target man as he is playing against his old club.
