43 so far, Ederson and Trippier to play tomorrow. 2500th position. Meh.

Concerned about no Man C attacking coverage so thinking Laca to Aguero tomorrow? Was considering Mendy or a midfielder aswell but can't bring myself to take out Maddison (Cardiff a), Richarlison (Brighton h). Other midfielders are Peyeyra, Salah and Hazard. Can't take Hazard out as I'd want him straight back if he's fit next week.
We have a similar team it seems but I do have a City attacker. I'm holding on to Richarlison till he plays Brighton next week then going to Mendy.

52 points. No transfers used. I just knew Sterling would do well but not 21 points. Looks like a must have to me. Don't see him missing any more league games with KDB out for a while and their Champions League looking safe.

Yep agree on Sterling.

Same for me. Have him. No transfers used. 52 points. 582 season. 31 subs.

How to get Sterling in? Current formation of 3-5-2 makes it tough as can't bring myself to take out Hazard or Salah.

I also have Salah and Hazard but no Sterling. He should have come in for Hazard for the Tottenham game but it's hard to pull the trigger. City will not be stopped in the league but the 5 below are all very strong. Strongest league ever for me.

I've got the go to midfield of Hazard, Salah, Richarlison, Maddison and Peyeyra.

I should have done Hazard to Sterling before last Monday's game aswell.

I have Sigurdsson instead of Pereyra, the rest is the same. I was all set to replace Hazard with KDB last Monday but he was benched. Guess I dodged a bullet.

I’ve got Sterling, Salah, Hazard, Maddison.

About to jettison Mitrovic after tomorrow’s game. Wondering who comes in to replace him tbh

I dumped Eden for Salah, and picked up those 12 points - and have Lac who was my... oh this is is getting confusing :(

Had Eden, Kun, Kane

Kneejerked Kane to Lac after the Cardiff pants, Lac bagged 12 I think
Thoughtful kneejerk of Eden to Mo, when Eden had a bad back, Mo bagged 12
Plan to go Lac to EdenKdB bigger by KdB breaking and more Arse than Lac impressing at the weekend.

Schurrle over Pey, and I went Maddi to Ross for some reason.

This Sterling thing a bit kneejerky, even for me :lol:

Have the same conundrum. But no answer as yet. Sigurdsson has served me well in past seasons. But not sure that’s a strong argument

My trouble is I've got 3-5-2 so a midfielder is out. Could go for any defender and go 4-5-1 or can go to £5.6m for a striker, Wilson? Arnie?

Well if it’s any help I’ve been trying to work out how to get Wilson in my team. But can’t manage it without drastic surgery, which I’m not prepared to do. I’d be tempted by him in your position.

I’m 442 currently and clinging onto top spot in my mates league. Having been served well by 3 premium defenders. So that’s also an option.

Not sure who you other striker is but I’m also holding 0.2 back for the inevitable Sergio injury to upgrade to Kane. Hoping injury and upturn in fortune collide beautifully.

Think I’m going Richarlison for Mitrovic. Added bonus of giving M one last chance before making the switch.

Any views welcomed

Looking at Maddison's injury and wanting to take advantage of Liverpools run of fixtures, is below just a tinker too far? 5 at the back feels wrong but 21-28pts+ possible each week looking at fixtures a good basis for some good weekly returns. But if Liverpool don't fire is the gamble too big for a single entrant? Would have 29 transfers left.

Ederson
Robertson
Mendy
Alonso
Chilwell
Fraser>Mane
Maddison>Gomez
Hazard
Salah
Lacazette>Jimenez
Aguero

It’s something that I explored, the Madd to Gomez. So you’re not alone. My difficulty is that I need/want to do Mitrovic to Richarlison to release some funds to do it.

Way fixtures fall isn’t helpful though. So will hold till after break.

Taking a view that Richarlison is more likely to score better points than Mitrovic, isn't hanging on for any extra game a false economy? Would back Richarlison, even vs Chelsea, against Mitro vs Liverpool so is the time now not later?
