Three Gameweeks left now and one of them will be key. Hopefully seeing what a double week can do for your ranking, you’ll prep just like we do here. I should also follow through with my advice as well. One key miss for me was my recommendation of Jason Puncheon who had 23 total points last gameweek and has been a beast with 39 points in his last three games.
Using Jason as proof to follow through I want to point out my recommendation of Aaron Ramsey from last week. Watching the game this past week it was clear to see that he is in form and needs to jell a bit more to get back to the early season form that got him to 112pts pre injury. It will take a little bit more game time but you can see it will happen during their “easier” run-in.
This part of the season is all about battles, the one for the top spot between Liverpool and Chelsea and City. The champs spot between Arsenal and Everton, and of course the relegation battle. This is where you scout those teams and see who wants to be the team hero.
Now with Silva nursing an ankle injury it may be time to look at Nasri or another Midfield option.I have also opted to transfer Mirallas out for Gerrard for the final run in as this will be a close end to the season and will be great to watch as a fan. You can see players like Puncheon and Ramsey are the ones who want to be the catalyst for their respective teams.
With a double game week in two weeks you’ll want to have coverage on the Manchester teams and keep your free transfer in Game week 36 in your pocket so you can adjust your team.
Below is my team selection for game week 35
Lukaku – A dud as captain but I will keep him for the United game and consider a transfer if he blanks again
Dzeko – Only featuring for 89 minutes in both games in the Double it may be time to transfer for Augero
Suárez – An away game to Norwich can be very rewarding as Liverpool need to get every point possible to stay on top. Keep in mind his 4 goals and 1 assist the last time they met.
Mata– Back off the bench it will be interesting to see United’s set up and formation and team selection
Ramsey – A risk that paid off with a beauty assist on Podolski’s goal I am confident that we will see more of that
Livermore – Buried on the bench but will keep him for the double game week
Gerrard – Brought in for his penalty spot status I feel he will be a very big part to helping Liverpool take the league title
Silva – I will start him this game week but understand if he doesn’t feature
Zabaleta – Such a crap double game week he’ll need to make up for it this week
Demel – I expect a low scoring game as both of the teams are mid table and relegation safe
Ward –As noted above both teams are playing for their fans and putting on a good show but nothing at risk
Coleman – A defender against United is never good for clean sheets but I will keep him as first sub
Cahill – Chasing the title you can expect tight defensive games from here on in.
As always Good Luck and I’ll see you next Game week!
