    What way does Christensen going off with a clean sheet impact his bonus potential? He’ll be the only player on the field to get a clean sheet, correct?

    He's fourth in line for a bonus.

    12 from 5.
    Have Christensen and Ward, so swings and roundabouts there.
    Femenia 0-pointer is annoying, as is Hazard blank, but imagine he will be captained by a few so some consolation.
    RLC was my other, can't complain with 2 points for 4.5.

    Ward and Femenia injuries mean a defensive transfer looms, although my other 3 defenders have good fixtures this weekend. Cue Duffy yellow and suspension.

    Couldn’t really have asked for more from tonight.

    Christensen, Zaha and Richarlison do the business. Hazard and Speroni disappointments, but I’m on 22 with no hits.

    The only sickener is that I thought Mee would play, but probably should have used my free transfer to bring in Tarkowski instead who is also nailed. Still, I can’t really complain.

    I do expect Sterling and Gomez to be rested tomorrow, which means I’ll likely be fielding Naughton (MCI) and Duffy (tot), and with a lot of big hitters to play there’s still a long way to go this gameweek.

    So far, so good though!

    23 from 5. Green arrows overnight at least. Pope the unlikely saint so far

    Who will replace Ward at Burnley ?

    Isn’t Long left footed ? Will he get games at left back now ?

    Or will it just be Charlie Taylor in for a straight swap ?

    Gomez got rested in the CL, would be surprised if he is left out tomorrow.

    I'd say Taylor but I'm just basing that on Long not being mobile enough to get up and down the wing. Ward has been quite attacking this season.

    Pope the best way into the Burnley defence Shirley?

    Christy keeping that clean sheet and Alonso losing his. That and many many many other frustrating things so far this season.

    And every time a quote comes into my head from a favourite movie of mine.

    In response to Alabama’s question -

    “I kept asking Clarence why our world seemed to be collapsing and things seemed to be getting so shítty. And he'd say, "that's the way it goes, but don't forget, it goes the other way too."

    And what can you say to that ?

    Other than, go fcuk yourself Clarence. It doesn’t.

    Nearly did it 2 weeks ago to raise funds but I can’t bring myself to sell DDG knowing that Heaton isn’t too far off.

    16 (-4) from 4

    Disappointing

    Serious night of what could have been with alonso & courtois

    Even Ricky just getting an assist is disappointing

    Yeah. Makes sense. Bardsley came straight in for Lowton.

    Would free up 2.5m going Alonso to Taylor. And I’m pretty fcuking sick of owning Alonso at the minute.

    I wouldnt be rushing to get Burnley DEF's in with their fixtires after weekend.

    Klopp reveals Mo Salah was taken off in the derby as a precaution due to a "little bit" of a problem with his hamstring. #LFC

    https://t.co/w0e8XM6Ij5


    I honestly don’t care if he is injured
    I didn’t captain him and should have a player to sub in for him .........running out of captaincy options for the weekend though

    May well be moratta if he is fit


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,934 ✭✭✭AdpRo


    Tarkowski losses bp, Alonso down to one bp.

    Pope will still get save points and is the best option.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,131 ✭✭✭✭km79


    Tomkins gets one bonus

    I just don’t know anymore


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,638 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007


    Was Ward's injury bad?


  • Registered Users Posts: 36,010 ✭✭✭✭SlickRic


    22 from 5.

    Alonso, Ricky and Tarkowski doing the business.

    Solid start.

    Pope is in 5% of teams yet every second team I check has Pope in it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,131 ✭✭✭✭km79


    It may leave me with only 10 players but if salah doesnt play league leader has no captain as moratta is his vice
    He must have missed the big red arrow when he logged on to bank his transfer ;)

    I'd say he's in over 20% of live teams though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,885 ✭✭✭stephenl15


    Courtois hasn't kept a single cs since I got him, with those fixtures and Pope is getting an ungodly amount of save, bonus and cs points. So frustrating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 316 ✭✭Irish Raven


    the days of chelseas clean sheets seems to be gone!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,349 ✭✭✭✭siblers


    Chelsea are ruining my season, Azpi and Curtiois returning 2 pointers, Hazard blanking two games in a row after he did serious damage when I had Sane picked over him


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,222 ✭✭✭✭gammygils


    4 (no hits) from 3 :( And 4 to come off my bench for Rambo & Morata. So 8 from 5! Bollox!

    Depending on a big haul from Capt. Kane & Salah & Otamendi to rescue my GW :rolleyes:
