Gameweek 2 Team
A bad gameweek for my team, saved from worse embarrassment by a great Martinez performance in the early Monday game.
0.5 ITB – still have flexibility ahead of planned Aubz to KDB transfer
GK – Martinez, McCarthy
Martinez (somewhat) saving my gameweek with a fantastic performance on his debut. Tough to evaluate the Villa defense against the Sheffield attack, even tougher after they went down a man. He looks the most talented keeper at his price point. Proud that this risky pick ahead of his move is paying off.
DEF – Trent, Robbo, Dier, Lascelles, Taylor
Trent and Robbo first clean of the season. Liverpool can clean in any game, so I need to keep these two in regardless of fixture and form. The attacking returns will come. Might look to upgrade the Dier spot to a Wolves defender ahead of their nice fixture run.
MID – Aubz, Mo, ASM, Soucek, Reed
Aubz with the one assist return as my captain. Mo looks in great form and will be sticking with him against Arsenal. ASM looks part of a double transfer waiting to happen. Soucek is going to get attacking returns soon, has looked so dangerous. Reed keeps on ticking.
FWD – Werner, Martial, Davis
Werner and Martial both blank. United looked terrible and Martial was anonymous. Chelsea game was strange with the red card and Werner looked isolated second half. One to watch.
Gameweek 2 Reaction/Takeaways
Everton looking ok, but I’m still not convinced long term. I think they’re one injury/bad bounce away from a poor run of form. Man United looked totally lost in their game.. Palace looking solid again this year, but better attacking players to come in.. West Ham playing better than their results indicate.. Tottenham scored five but still didn’t look convincing. I have no idea how I have double Newcastle in my team. Brighton are so fun and bright under Potter. Chelsea looks like they will need a month to figure these new players out. Wolves and City both rounding into form, but City still vulnerable in the back.
