Gameweek 4 Team
Lol why do I play this game. Liverpool lost big, Martial suspended and KDB injured on international break..
GK – McCarthy, Martinez
The one bright spot! I have been getting consistent returns from my goalkeeper rotation so far this year. I have ridden my luck at times, but I’m happy to have selected these two until my mid-season wildcard.
DEF – Trent, Robbo, Dier, Taylor, Lascelles
Ugh.. Trent and Robbo conceding seven (SEVEN!) with no attacking returns. Spurs conceded the early penalty and Burnley conceded three. Lovely.
MID – KDB, Mo, Traore, Soucek, Reed
Double ugh. KDB was injured on international duty following this gameweek, so will have to transfer him out following exactly zero returns from him to start the season. Mo had a great gameweek and is nailed in my side for the foreseeable future. I’m loving West Ham and Soucek so far this year. I transferred Traore in for the favorable fixture and he only played the eight minutes. To cap it off, the ticking enabler Reed is now injured.
FWD – Martial, Jiminez, Davis
Triple ugh. Martial sent off and suspended, will need to transfer him out. Jiminez blank (after the transfer in) against Fulham. I will stay on Jim to keep ticking with his classic goal every other game.
Gameweek 4 Reaction/Takeaways
West Ham are fun without Moyes. Chelsea are a fun shambles of a team. Once it clicks with Werner and Ziyech and Puli come back, they are going to be a huge attacking threat. I am staying off of all United assets. City look dysfunctional and have injuries. I’m hoping this was just a blip for Liverpool. Everton won’t be able to sustain this form, I’m refusing to transfer in DCL or James (at least for now). Spurs are looking good(?) under Mourinho, is this his next classic over-performing team?
