So currently I'm on this third version of my first draft.
Azpi | Robertson | Dunk (Bennett | Bednarek)
Salah | Sané | Milivojevic | Albrighton (Stephens)
Kane | Zaha | Murray
DDG - Expensive, but scored very well last season, particularly at the start when United kept so many clean sheets with DDG claiming countless save and bonus points. Will play every game for me (and Utd obvs)
Stekelenburg - 4.0m keeper with a yellow flag will hopefully put people off using him as bench fodder to reduce the chances of him dropping to 3.9m. Will probably downgrade to another keeper on WC should they drop just to get that extra 0.1m. Never know when even that small amount might come in handy!
Azpi - Either Azpi or Alonso with both at 6.5m Think I fancy Azpi more (he outscored Alonso by 10 points last season), and is just more solid and nailed on.
Robertson - How could I not have him after his heroics towards the end of last season!
Should be a nailed on started and, like a previous poster said, with Fabinho now sitting in front of that defence, they should be considerably more solid and gain a few more clean sheets.
Dunk - Scored well last season. Nailed on starter. Only 4.5m.
Bennett - 4.0m defender who's apparently destined for good things by all accounts. Tbh, I've only decided to go with him after hearing others rave about him in here!!
I do think Wolves should be quite decent this season, as opposed to Cardiff who could tank which is why I'm going with Bennett and Bednarek over Peltier.
Bednarek - Decent option for me at 4.0m. Had a decent World Cup all things considered and could well be first choice for Southampton. May admit defeat here and eventually swap out for Peltier.
Salah - It's Salah. You either want to pay that price for him, or you don't...and I do.
Sané - As mentioned above, with Sterling going so far into the tournament with England, it could be Sane and Bilva carrying the torch for City early on down the wings. Also, Sterling is quite expensive at 11.0m. Sané will also be out with a point to prove after missing out on the World Cup for Germany who, as we know, were subsequently awful in the tournament.
Milivojevic - A little expensive at 6.5m, but does he still take free kicks, and possibly penalties but they could be given back to Bentekkers. Either way, had a great end to the season so hoping for a good one again from him.
Albrighton - Similar to an above poster regarding Demarai Gray, I think if Mahrez goes (which is looking ever so likely now) the burden must be shared among everyone else across the midfield. Albrighton scored pretty well last season and is only 5.5. That said though, I'm still not thoroughly convinced on him either.
Stephens (BHA) - Safe 4.5m option who probably won't play.
Kane - A lot has been made of his inability to score in August but, after a good World Cup for him, I have a felling it could be different this season due to much less of a break. Could be completely wrong!! In any case, I hate having to take hits to shoehorn him into my team later on, and I usually Wildcard quite late.
Zaha - Doubling up on Crystal Palace seems a bit dodgy, and as a forward he may not be as attractive anymore. I may look to downgrade him and upgrade the midfield and go to 4-5-1.
Murray - Was was that stat about teams with English strikers winning the most penalties again. I know it'll be Gross that takes them so I should put him in but at least he'll get the assists for any penalties he wins, plus he'll score as well. May still downgrade him though to upgrade to a premium midfield.
All in all, I'm not really happy with my striking options, and also don't like the lack of City coverage in defence. At the moment, I have question marks over Albrighton, Murray, Milivojevic, and Zaha.
