    Aaaaaaaaaaand we're back!

    Saiss - Justin - Taylor
    Salah - Son - JamRod - Pulisic
    Kane - DCL - Jiminez

    [Steer - Lamptey - Mitchell - Anguissa]

    2FT used... happy with how the team looks this week and have most major captain choices covered, which probably means blanks all round! Curious to see how crowdless London & Liverpool derbies end up, hoping it rains goals instead of the predicted drab historically low scoring affairs. Sneaky punt on Pulisic... if he starts and rekindles his end of season from from last season he could be great value in that Chelsea side.

    Good luck all!

    Think this is a good week for a differential captain, fancy Villa to do well against a depleted Leicester

    Start Ayling or Brewster?

    I'd pick Brewster but with my current form that probably means you should do the opposite.

    Starting myself with:

    Robertson, Saiss, Taylor
    Salah, Son(c), Rodriguez, Havertz
    Brewster, Watkins, Wilson

    Ryan, De Bruyne, James, Mitchell

    Good luck!

    The choice of captain was a hard call this week.

    I decided to go for a gamble and picked bamford, wolves waiting on a number of covid results from the Portuguese members who may or may not be ruled out of Mondays game... If any of them test positive, I'm sure Leeds will go on and get the victory.

    On Wildcard
    Chillwell, Robertson, Lamptey, (Masuaka,Kilman)
    Salah, Rodriguez,Mahrez,Son(c), Grealish,
    Watkins, Kane,(Brewster)
    Full of Wildcard optimism that will all go horribly wrong once Ings (my one big regret) and TAA bag hat-tricks.

    Hate jumping on the son bandwagon as historically it never works out well, but left with no choice after Kev is out, sorry son owners.
