Gameweek 8 has been and gone and what a week for fantasy football it was! 3 penalties missed by 3 highly owned players; Aguero, De Bruyne and Benteke! We also saw the likes of Son and Aguero start the game on the bench, which ruined many captaincy selections. Not to worry though, as we are running the same cash leagues as last week so why not join us and pick a new team this week?

Here’s our line-ups:
So this week we have largely based our team around Arsenal, Liverpool, Stoke & Watford as they take on Middlesbrough, West Brom, Hull and Swansea. At the back we have Cech in goal and in front of him, we have a mix of players; Coleman, Clyne, Cameron & Holebas. Stoke have a ridiculously good run of fixtures so we are hoping their confidence is high. We’re also thinking the Everton defence may have had a confidence boost thanks to their superman keeper Stekelenburg. In front of them, we have our midfield 4. We have gone for Mesut “mega assister” Ozil, “pulls all the strings” Lallana, Dele Alli & “We’ve got Capoue, Etienne Capoue”. Up top we’ve banked on Sanchez to deliver the goods and Bony to make the most of a brilliant fixture.
6 A-Side – Chelsea vs Manchester United
For the biggest game of the weekend, we have gone for a mix of players. After watching Liverpool Manchester United in the Monday Night Football game, this could easily go one of two ways and therefore we have included some defensive players as cover for a boring nil-nil-er. Therefore, Cesar “Dave” Azpilicueta starts our line-up alongside Valencia who had an awesome game at Anfield. In front of them we have Willian, Herrera & Pogba. Pogba on the ball is a joy to watch so we know he is capable of producing something. Up top, we’ve gone with everyone’s favourite mid-40s striker Diego Costa. The top scorer in the Premier League currently could pull it out of the bag once again!
