    Same, if there was no chance of rotation I wouldn't think twice, considered Mo but left it on Sterling in the end


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,446 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Has to be Sterling.

    Salah Vice - Newcastle likely to be more resistant than Norwich I reckon


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,796 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    Lots of articles out there detailing Sterling's relative lack of rotation risk under Pep. But... Pep.

    After going Aguero last week, it's on Sterling this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 701 ✭✭✭ loadwire


    Don't have Raz so going with Kun over Mo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,722 ✭✭✭✭ gammygils


    Salah for me. Does well at Anfield so far.
    Sterling disappointed the last time out

    City are playing Norwich though who will probably have to draft in Delia Smith to play centre-back.

    My (C) picks have been poor recently

    GW1: Salah (C) - 24 (the exception)
    GW2: Salah (C) - 6
    GW3: Kane (C) - 4
    GW4: Sterling (C) - 6

    Brought Aguero in on WC and currently on him, Salah (VC)

    Any reason to swap?


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,709 Cantona's Collars


    Aguero for me, didn't travel for the international games and will be fresh against a Norwich team shorn of defenders.

    Possibly doing the same but have a feeling thus could be a painful game..... pick one and stick might be safer.

    Leaning towards Salah myself, at home and rested up over int break.

    Sterling. But honestly him and Aguero - and even KdB - are great picks.

    You wouldn't bet against Salah or Manè scoring well either, though Newcastle did well to frustrate Spurs in their last away game against one of the big teams.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,691 ✭✭✭ Taxuser1


    Sterling for me. The 12.30 kick off keeping me and my mood swings away from Salah


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,968 ✭✭✭ $hifty


    Aguero for me, might do TC.

    I thought this myth of the lack of goals in the early KO had been debunked?

    Really tempted by Kane

    It is but superstition and bad memories persist.

    I'm hoping that Newcastle struggle more against Liverpool with 3 up front than they did against a Spurs team with their striker dropping into midfield.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,446 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Dammit...voted Sterling but wavering back towards Salah now.

    Himself and Mane could run riot tomorrow and Sterling has let me down every time I've captained him :confused::confused::confused::confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Tempted to TC Sterling. Norwich are brutalized with injuries and they're pretty crap defensively anyway

    Not sure would i chance TC, he might not get the full 90 and also CL during the week.

    But it is very tempting

    Yeah the CL is putting me off slightly. Though he has played the full 90 in all league games so far. Helped by the fact Sané is injured and he has no real competition on the left wing.

    Very very tough call between Salah and Aguero (or sterling if ya have him)
    Those with any of those 3 who are considering Kane are trying to be too smart imo
    His premier league form just doesn't justify it


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    TC Sterling. Let's do this

    Ballsy, best of luck


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,424 ✭✭✭ Pete_Cavan


    Right, that's it, I'm sticking with Salah.

    City could demolish Norwich but it could be one of those games where Mahrez gets two goals and the 3 BP and a few others get 6 - 8 points. If Liverpool demolish Newcastle, as they should, Salah will surely get double figures.

    Now close this damn thread before someone changes my mind again!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,877 ✭✭✭ stephenl15


    Sterling! Would be Kun if I had him.

    That Norwich injury list is too tempting


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,332 ✭✭✭ Always Be Closing


    Kane as a differential

    Not entirely convinced by Kane’s output this season at all so far, however I need a half a risk to get my season going, so I went with him.

    Palace due a thumping I think.
