3rd – Game of Throw Ins (Jack Egan) 834 points
4th – Draw Trafford (Hemanth Sai) 831 points
5th – Borussia Teeth (Nathan Ridley) 823 points
6th – Duhai Bonda Ayahanda (Amanina Sabki) 821 points
7th – Bagbee Broncos (Ken Mulandi) 820 points
Now it’s time for this gameweek’s (now extended) Ins and Outs…
IN: David De Gea MUN (£5.8m)
Now surely the best goalkeeper in the world, this man might have a few things to say on Sunday. Tight tactics could lead to a great clean sheet as De Gea is capable of almost anything. A huge price tag is worth paying for someone who concedes a low amount of goals anyway.
Fixture – MCI [H]
OUT: Joe Hart WHU (£4.4m)
Unlike his aforementioned colleague, the place of his man is much less assured. As his fellow stopper at his club showed class in their last outing and another big test this weekend, don’t expect Hart to shine. Better options are available at a range of prices.
Fixture – CHE [H]
IN: Kieran Tripper TOT (£5.6m)
Despite poor form, the wing-back will be key to breaking down a similar style of opposition this gameweek. Securing his place in his team, the points racked up so far show Trippier’s quality. With no real distractions for his side anymore, don’t miss out on a good chance to get him in.
Fixture – STK [H]
OUT: Virgil van Dijk SOU (£5.4m)
In spite of coming back in glory fashion following summer speculation, van Dijk has not done anything to really prove himself. A shaky side doesn’t help either. His price drop shouldn’t fool you too.
Fixture – ARS [H]
IN: Phillips Coutinho LIV (£9.9m)
Showing his true ability last gameweek, many may have forgotten this man’s genius. Goals and assists at the top level are crucial to his teams’ success. It’s unlikely Coutinho knows where he’ll playing next season, but your club has the chance to get him in before it’s too late.
Fixture – EVE [H]
OUT: Aaron Mooy HUD (£5.4m)
In a now struggling side facing a relegation battle, their star man is out of form. With a great start this campaign, Mooy ooked like a consistent bargain but for now he isn’t performing. Cheap but not cheerful as of yet.
Fixture – BHA [H]
IN: Mame Biram Diouf STK (£5.6m)
Extraordinarily playing at wing-back so far, Diouf has managed to gain big points by playing well consistently. Whether it be the star man awards or goals, the man seems to have come into his own. Playing nervous opposition this time around, he could be a great addition for such a low price.
Fixture – TOT [A]
OUT: Kelechi Iheanacho LEI (£6.5m)
Playing in the Checkatrade Trophy in midweek says it all for this stellar signing. Failing to get into his team much this campaign is an implication of the time to give this guy up. Like you should for the man mentioned just prior, make a switch up top as soon as possible.
Fixture – NEW [A]
As always, good luck!
