    I think your right, for me it's a safe bet. Have Kane and rashford too. Kane, from what I have seen, looks like the saddest man in England. Rashford could get 3 or could do nothing.

    Between Jiménez, Kane and Rashford I would captain Kane personally. This Sheff United decline is sharp.

    Think I might go for Doherty here too.

    I’m wavering on Doherty now.

    Even one poxy Villa goal would be a killer.

    Aubameyang is surely the safest bet. Wow. Turnaround.

    I would feel the same as you if I had Doherty. Smith has come in for a lot of criticism for the more passive performance since the restart and had vocally addressed it accordingly.

    My experience of him is that we’ll see a more attacking Villa side. Not only that, but as the games come along Villa will grow more desperate to start getting 3 points.

    I still think it’s going to be a low scoring game, Bournemouth had a 0.06 xG during the week I believe, but I don’t think I’d be using the armband on it either.

    I think I’m going to make the sensible decision on this one and captain Jiminez
    Nice old reliable 9 point Jiminez
    Going to start Grealish as well
    Just have a feeling .....

    I’d be reluctant towards Jiménez also, if only because Wolves have been outperforming their xG by a full 1.22 combined goals over the last 2 games (in a spell when they scored only 3 goals anyway).

    Granted, Jimenez does not need huge percentage chance shots to score, but I think I’d be gravitating towards the players where their team is expected to score a couple with ease.

    Sheff United and Norwich fit this bill at the mo IMO. Not sure Villa and Brighton do, and it sounds crazy to me to be saying that about Villa but for a team to go from 2 goals conceded xG on average to about 0.67 since the restart, that would be enough to make me worry for my Wolves attacker that those 3 game’s stats are not a mere outlier.

    I agree
    But
    I don’t have any players form spurs or arsenal !
    So it’s basically salah or Jiminez

    Yeah, Jimenez is in that situation for me also.

    Thoughts on Rashford? With Ighalo around and Lingaard etc could get rested today and up against Brighton.

    Or Jiminez?

    Apparently Brighton didn’t concede any big chances in the Arsenal and Leicester games, the only goal conceded came from a Pepe worldie

    Have it on Jiminez but really hate having my captain playing in the early Saturday game!

    Usually sets the gameweek up for disappointment.

    Salah, he has a decent break and **** knows what team Pep roulette will end up on

    I'd say Pool and City will both be full strength. Neither manager will want to come out on bottom.

    What i am thinking too... Rashford or Salah??


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,447 ✭✭✭Ginger n Lemon


    Went with Salah. Takes penalties, Milner wont play, he ll be up against Mendy or Zinchenko both are very poor.

    No Fernandinho either. And yeah, Pool have some rest + will go out all guns blazing, no champions league or FA cup to save themselves for

    Jiminez after being on salah since their game

    Going with PEA. Unlucky to hit the bar against Soton. Can see a big return against a very poor Norwich defence

    32 points as captain :D
