    Aaah of course i forgot that..no i played it yesterday.

    @Torgeirtrap I reluctantly let Aguero go though it occurred to me he picks up the odd injury.

    Doesn't need to be a bad thing. He's probably unlikely to go further up in price before next game week, not having scored today. If Pep makes any comments suggesting he'll start, you can always transfer him back if you want to. Just keep an eye on comments from press conferences later next week (there will always be quotes online), and you should have little to worry about. :-)

    Cheers I have book marked that link, I have been looking at the teams that are in the two hundred plus points bracket also, see if I can get any player ideas.

    That's a good idea! Teams that have a good score after three weeks have done well with their team picks. Fixtures is another factor to consider, of course.

    True I have Lukaku and Kane going up against each other on Monday hopefully both will score a Hatrick in a Man United win lol

    I wonder a bit about that game. If I remember correctly, Newcastle played well against Sp*rs, so United should be able to get through that defence. Lloris was in a bit of trouble earlier this week too; can't see Pochettino benching him, but you never know.

    There is alot of negativity surrounding United right now we can't afford to lose, my worst fear is Jose has lost the dressing room or some of it. Jose will make quite a few changes I think and bring in the players he trusts and relys on. My gut feeling is Spurs will win that game.

    I have Pogba in my team if you can believe it,mainly as he is the designated penalty taker.

    Pogba is in my current squad though I have swapped him for originally Richarlison then swapped Richarlison for Mané.

    Is Matić fit? I guess José would like to play him if he's back from injury.

    I think he is OK to return, he will offer a bit more protection for the defence, I expect Jones to come in for Lindelof and Lingard to return also.

    That should give United some familiar names to play, at least - which might be what they need for this fixture.

    That's a home record even an Arsenal fan can enjoy!
  • Watford second goal was not intentional though it looked good, Palace in trouble though the build up to the game seemed too much the Zaha show.

    I considered Holebas on my wildcard, but decided against because of the upcoming fixtures. Regretting that just now!

    Everytime a player scores I get indecisive, barring injuries I will stick to the team I have now... Maybe.

    If you're like me, that wildcard will go trough multiple drafts before the next deadline! Someone you leave out are bound to do well, though. Happens every time.

    Penalty to Chelsea Alonso won it I wonder if he gets the assist, I should have been more thorough with my first team for week one.

    Ryan Sessegnon did not start for Fulham gr

    Well a Zaha goal and Alonso assist will do.

    Alonso scored though deflected looks like an own goal.

    That's what the wildcard does to you. A few good results here and there, and you might end up changing the team completely as a result! :))
    Which players do you have that are yet to play?

    You can always leave it alone for a few days, then have a look back and see if changes are necessary!
