79 points (-4).

Not bad scores this GW, despite the hit. Made up some ground in mini-leagues and a green arrow.


Ibra returned his highest haul of the season with 15 points. However, almost every man and his dog captained Ibra, so not much ground gained on rivals.

Other players who impressed were Alonso with yet another cleansheet and Heaton with yet another masterclass showstopper. Lallana, my transfer in, paid immediate dividends a goal and 2 bonus points while Hazard shone in Costa’s absence. Origi got a paltry assist while Kane once again disappointed with a goal but missed a penalty.

Disappointments were Siggy, Cedric and Holebas. Lastly, Sanchez, who blanked despite being in the thick of Arsenal’s attack against WBA. Luckily I did not captain him.

With the next gameweek less than 24 hours away, there is very little time to think or mull over transfers. Currently dominating my thoughts are whether to bring in Costa v Stoke (H) or Lukaku v Hull (H) in place of Kane. OR, hold Kane, and change Origi to some other cheap striker.

Currently leaning towards Costa v Stoke but Lukaku v Hull is REALLY tempting. All this with Kun in GW20 v Burnley burning at the back of my mind.

A real striking dilemma to have. Will probably roll the dice and make a decision within the day.
