(Am I the only one who thinks that the January transfer window this time around is really a dull affair)
Time for gameweek 23 and here are our weekly picks for the fantasy team. Finally as sense and normalcy starts to get back into the EPL, it is time that we adjust our squad as per the changing scenario. Perfect time to use the wildcard, me thinks.
Going by recent performances, we have opted to go with the two consistent and reliable keepers this season. Peter Cech (5.8) takes top spot while Kasper Schmeichel ( 4.5) joins the ranks as reserve keeper. To be honest, the Leicester city keeper has a lot to thank his team for his splendid keeping record, but as long as he is earning his clean-sheets, who are we to complain…
A fresh look to our defensive line! Laurent Koscielny (6.2) owing to form + fixtures, Craig Dawson (5.1) owing to fixtures, Bacary Sagna (5.7) owing to form + fixtures, Leighton Baines (6.2) owing to form and comeback, and Patrick van Aanholt (4.6) owing to form. For gameweek 23, the defenders in the starting 11 are Baines, Dawson and Sagna (would have liked to include Koscielny as well but feel its a bit ambitious to gun for 2 Arsenal cleansheets)
Our midfielders this week are: Willian (7.2), Riyadh Mahrez (7.2), Georginio Wijnaldum (7.0), Mesut Ozil (10.0) and Bamidele Alli (5.5). four midfielders feature in our playing 11, them being Willian, Mahrez, Wijnaldum and Ozil.
Forwards: Romelu Lukaku (9.2), Aleksandar Mitrovic (6.2) and Sergio Aguero (13.3). Mitrovic earns his place in the team owing to some noticable performances in recent games, mind you that in the last 6 gameweeks, he has had more shots inside the box (20) than any forward that period ahead of a trip to Watford.
Thanks for reading guys, hope this helps!!
