    I think this is what I'll be going with. Have 1.9 mil in the bank, to bring in a Chelsea defender for next week, where I will be bench boosting. Also gives me the funds to upgrade anichebe if I'm not feeling confident with him, and also if I want to take king out for another double GW37 player. Opinions appreciated.

    Any suggestions, only 0.4 in bank:

    Cech
    Yoshida Stephens Alonso
    Hazard Chamberlain Alli Sane Sanchez
    Gabbiadini Jesus

    Pickford, Azpi, Anichebe, Vertonghen

    Totally agree, but I was thinking Benaloune was pretty certain at this stage, will Wes Morgan get his place back even if available?
    I can afford Prodl but are his fixtures any good (Chelsea and Everton away..)

    Otherwise I can ditch plans to leave enough to change King to Hazard for DGW37 which gives me an extra million+ to play with ( I could still afford Gabi to Costa. That brings the likes of Huth into play....

    Benalouane will probably be dropped. Manager said Morgan isn't fit this week but hopefully will be next week. Says to me he'll play. I've Benalouane for BB this week myself but he'll be on the bench til the end then.

    Azpi to Holgate, Chamberlain to Stanislas, and Gabbi to Costa? (funds tight?!) - i'd fancy Costa to comfortably outscore Gabbi between now and the end of the season. Chamberlain will almost certainly not start all games (+ Stanislas should be nailed now with Afobe out)

    Good team.
    I think Azpi is possibly a waste of money, he has a high probability of getting clean sheets, but has a low chance of any thing else (bonus points will be spread around the expected goalscorers).

    You could down grade to someone with an equal chance of a cleansheet, Monreal, or Ben Davis and use the money else where (caballero maybe)?

    Will Caballero play all games though?

    Bravo is out injured for the rest of the season.

    Main conundrum I have is as follows:

    A/ Davies/Prodl - Pedro - Costa

    B/ Alonso -- Haz -- Anichebe

    Only considering B as I feel alot in my money league will have Costa. Id be wary of going without him but may have no choice but to.

    What would you do?

    changed to:

    Caballero
    Yoshida Monreal Alonso
    Hazard Walcott Alli Sane Sanchez
    Gabbiadini Jesus

    Pickford, Stephens, Vertonghen, Anichebe

    Walcott is purely for sentimental reasons! **** it!

    Wrecking my head now a bit: (1) Simpson & Ndidi or (2)Benalouane & Lingard. I think option 2 may have limited gametime in GW37 due to United in Europe and maybe Morgan coming back from injury.

    Going for option 1 but swapping Ndidi for Capoue. Sound ok?

    Very similar team, I like it!

    Very similar to mine (I don't have BB chip)

    Caballero
    Yoshida, Monreal, Alonso
    Sanchez, Eriksen, Hazard, King, Tadic
    Jesus, Costa

    Pickford, Barnes, Stephens, Holgate.

    I couldn't afford Kane, and was torn between Vardy and Costa. Eriksen/Alli is a coin flip. Taking a punt on Tadic.

    Current team, expect it to be completely different by Friday. Main fault is no City attack but I think Pep will rotate everyone bar Aguero perhaps and he's far too expensive. Might be tempted by Jesus if he starts tomorrow.

    Caballero Pickford

    Alonso Gabriel Davies Yoshida Stephens

    Sanchez Hazard Eriksen Herrera King

    Kane Costa Gabbiadini

    Now going 3-5-2


    Cech

    Alonso Monreal Yoshida

    Sanchez Hazard Alli Eriksen King

    Kane Jesus

    Caballero, Stephens, Kone, Anichebe

    Finished up with this. Had the fear of not having Hazard all day so sacrificed Alli and Sane for him and Oxlade-Chamberlain (as a punt with the 2 doubles).

    Subs this week in brackets, bench boost next week

    Cech-(Willy)

    Alonso-Vertonghen-Yoshida-(Stephens-Blind)

    Sanchez(C)-Hazard-King-Oxlade-Chamberlain-(Romeu)

    Jesus-Kane-Costa

    (.3 ITB)

    Prepared to get Aguero back in for GW37 if he's fit for Costa/Kane and downgrading Ox for -4.


    I'm strangely content given the despair in the GW36 match day thread.
