    Remembering who took me to the dance.

    Sergio El Capitán.

    Out: Lukaku, Negredo
    In: Aguero, Kane

    Going back to more sensible play with premium players after my Negredo(C) punt crippled me.

    Feeling cool rolling the FT. :pac:

    DDG (Valdez)
    Alonso Blind Cedric/Bavies (Randall)
    Coutinho Sane Pedro Tadic Alli
    Kun (c) Kane (Negredo)

    Good Luck guys.

    Hoping Romero doesn't get a sharpener before EL.

    Jaku
    Alonso Kompany Bailly Brunt
    Hazard Alli King Zaha
    Aguero(c) Kane
    -4

    Busy day for me so I'm trying the MOTD challenge for the first time ever.
    A screamer from Brunt in his last week in my team would be so sweet....

    I think this one is fairly obvious but just want to double check.

    Who to bench out of these 3.

    Lukaku (Chelsea at home - league's top scorer & Chelsea haven't kept many clean sheets lately)

    Sane (boro away - slight rotation risk but if he plays could easily rack up 10+)

    Zaha (burnley at home - not done much since those 2 assists he slipped for but it is only burnley)


    I have Zaha benched. That's the correct call isn't it? I hadn't really thought about it too much but was then figuring lukaku isn't likely to score more than 1 goal, 2 maximum. Whereas palace could put in another 3 or 4 goals today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,883 ✭✭✭ Trimm Trabb


    De Gea

    Cedric Yoshida Valencia

    Sane Sanchez Zaha Alli Erisksen

    Kane (c) Rashford

    Subs: Robertson, Baines, Llorente

    I'd actually bench Lukaku. He has a poor record against the top clubs. I watched Everton against West Ham last week and they were truly awful from an attacking perspective. They don't have much to play for while Chelsea are fully focused on the title. I sold him for Kun this week cos only a win for boro will suffice so they're bound to leave lots of gaps in defence.

    DDG
    Alonso, Davies, Yoshida
    Sanchez, Alli, Sane, Siggy
    Lukaku, Gabbiadini, Aguero (c)

    Pickford, Holgate, Tom Carroll, Chambers

    No hits. Sticking with Siggy, if Swansea are going to avoid the drop he will surely have to be involved!

    Going on form Zaha is right call but as you say Lukaku most likely won't have a goal fest whereas Palace could easily get 4. But isn't the quote "form over fixtures" I would bench Zaha.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,270 clairewithani


    Bench Alli or King?

    It's a tough one. Even there I've got 2 different answers and both make good points.
    I guess there is no real correct choice, it's going to be a call that could go eitherway.
    A lot more people around me own lukaku (or at least did up til this gameweek) so I wouldn't get as badly punished if I went with lukaku and he blanked but zaha did well. On the other hand I'm chasing a bit now and need to take a risk or 2, I can't see myself getting severely punished if I don't play lukaku (he's not going to get a hat trick) so in my current situation of chasing I'm leaning towards zaha.
    If I was leading I'd play it safe with lukaku.

    I'm in a similar position and have dropped Zaha. It's a tough one though, Lukaku's home form has been fantastic

    Same, Zaha or King, need to bench one.

    Looking like Zaha for now as King could hit a double digits score vs Sunderland. Sane could be rested but heard nothing bar FSA rumours on that though he did look wrecked the other night.

    I'd def play king over zaha in your position. King has the form & the fixture.
    The fear of a 1 pointer from sane off the bench is very small in my opinion but feck knows with pep, he's liable to do anything.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,988 ✭✭✭✭ paulie21


    Foster

    Alonso Davies Yoshida

    Alli Sane Siggy Zaha

    Aguero (c) Benteke Rashford

    Tempted to take Zaha out for King for -4 would it be worth it?

    King is the correct call the more I look at it and as far as Sane goes I guess that's the risk with City players now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,771 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    For all those with king as part of a benching dilemma.........He shouldn't be in the conversation. He has brilliant form, on pens and is playing Sunderland???????
    Ignore price.
    Sanchez would be in my thinking before king at this point
    4 gameweeks left and king is playing them all for me as it stands
    He has become a play and forget player


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,771 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Valencia pva yoshida vertonghen

    Play 3
    I'm currently playing first 3
    Mourinho may make the decision for me BUT Valencia won't be left out of squad completely this time of he doesn't start......


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,953 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33


    Having banked I'm nervous about Valencia and triple Spurs attack, but surely the NLD will be hell-for-leather with Spurs about to break St Totteringhams Day?

    Do not bench Lukaku at home! All his goals come at home at Chelsea haven't kept a cleanie in 12 matches.

    Sane or Zaha - most likely Zaha who had done nothing in last 3 games


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,953 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33


    Lukaku is also against the club that let him go, and the club he's auditioning for. I dont think he's captain material but benching him is very risky.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,677 Aenaes


    Also, if you have Benteke then Zaha should probably be benched. I'm benching him myself.


  • Registered Users Posts: 674 ✭✭✭ carnie


    I think I'm benching Sanchez for the second week


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,708 ✭✭✭ bantee


    No hits, Gabbi in for Origi:
