Another quickfire gameweek has come and gone. This one was quite disappointing for me, as my captain pick not only blew up in my face, but was absolutely woeful during the game. I finished all out on 46 points, which goes down to 42 after calculating my hit. Let’s see what went wrong this week.
Nick Pope: 3 points
Annoyingly had their clean wiped. Even more annoyingly it was wiped by a wondergoal of a player I had just removed on a hit.
Alex McCarthy: 2 points
A solid team performance but nothing too exceptional from Alex.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 0 points
Horrendous. Not only did they lose, Trent was benched, then came on, just to get a yellow. The sellers are once again vindicated.
Matt Doherty: 4 points
Secret agent Matt Doherty has struck again. He was benched, to my dismay, then came on to get the assist for said wondergoal, and then proceeded to conceded a pen, which left him the highest scoring Wolves defender.
Roman Saiss: 2 points
Would’ve had a clean and bonus were it not for the last second penalty, can’t fault him too much.
Serge Aurier: 2 points
To everyone’s great surprise, Aurier actually played. Didn’t really do anything positive and conceded a cheap goal. This will be the last week in my team.
Kiko Femenia: 1 point
Didn’t expect anything and didn’t get anything.
Kevin de Bruyne: 0 points
Pep doesn’t want him to get this record. Why give him a full rest, he’s a professional athlete for god’s sake. He’s being wrapped in bubblewrap for the CL and has lost his value as an FPL asset.
Mohamed Salah (C): 2 points
So incredibly frustrating. He was so bad on the day, scuffed all of his chances, truly a miserable performance to watch and I hope I never need to rely on him again.
Bruno Fernandes: 6 points
One jammy assist, once again. He has looked so tired and out of it in the last 3 games, I think the xG reaper will catch up to him sooner or later.
Anthony Martial: 8 points
He has been brilliant. Such an improvement in his workrate has given him so many opportunities for goals.
Michail Antonio: 7 points
My man, instantly rewarding the hit by scoring in the first 5 minutes. He really is having a spectacular purple patch and I’m so glad I jumped on it.
Gabriel Jesus: 8 points
What a goal! He showed his brilliance in that one finish, but the rest left quite a bit to be desired. On top of that, he was robbed of an assist for a stonewall penalty. He also was outscored by Jimenez, making this all the more annoying.
Mason Greenwood: 2 points
I broke him. He finally came back into my team and his low numbers caught up to him. Hope I get a return out of him this year.
Eddie Nketiah: 0 points
Still banned from his red card vs AVL.
