First off, here’s a little write-up I did for @FPLMyClub on Twitter.
Spurs 0 – 2 Arsenal
The North London Derby didn’t go as many people expected it to. Hats off to Arsenal. They had a game plan, stuck with it, defended well, and finished their chances. Spurs looked flat. Kane and Alli were apparently fit according to Poch, but I think he’s just shielding them from the media.
Take the loss and move on is just what Spurs did. They exceeded expectations and won their group-of-death in Champions League, and now they will carry that momentum into the weekend versus the manager-less West Brom.
Predicted Scoreline: Spurs 3 – 0 West Brom
It’s time Spurs put more than 1 or 2 goals on the board. I can see it happening against a broken club like West Brom.
1. Must-Have: Kane (£12.8)
- He bagged a pot shot against Dortmund to get the monkey off his back. Look for him to push hard for maybe a brace this weekend.
2. Differential: Rose (£6.4 at 2.0%)
- Hear me out. He’s back, he’s fit, and only 2.0% of the game has him. If he plays, and that’s a BIG IF, he may get some big returns. Here’s hoping.
3. Avoid: Son (£7.9)
- He’s stepping up huge in the Champions League, but he still doesn’t play enough big minutes to be an effective FPL asset.
Hopefully, Chelsea and Liverpool light up the scoreboard. After Liverpool’s collapse against Sevilla, they may just focus on tightening up overall as a team. Chelsea is flowing after scoring 8 goals in their past two games.
Who do you have bringing in some juicy returns this gameweek? I’ve yet to think about my free transfer, but despite the tilt between Liverpool and Chelsea, I can see Morata scoring a couple.
Best of luck in your decisions, and remember, it’s a Friday deadline! May all your arrows be green this gameweek.
