Monitor – Marouane Fellaini & Michu

The two most popular midfield options in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game, Michu and Marouane Fellaini have stumbled over the last few Gameweeks in terms of attacking returns. Over their last five appearances, Michu has treated his 49% owners to just one goal and a single assist, while Fellaini’s 34% owners have received only one assist, though the Belgian has somewhat redeemed himself by collecting five bonus points in the last two matches.

Nevertheless, their recent lack of form is something of a worry. Although both have mainly been utilised in their usual role in “the hole” for Swansea and Everton respectively of late, Michu has also been fielded as the lone striker, while Fellaini has dropped deep into central midfield on occasion, as highlighted in the second-half of last Monday’s goalless draw at Southampton and Saturday’s FA Cup trip to Bolton. The duo have continued to rack up the transfers in over the last few days, though; Fellaini is third most popular midfielder ahead of next Tuesday evening’s deadline, with over 43,000 FPL managers snapping up his services, while Michu’s bandwagon rolls on relentlessly, with 30,000+ new owners finding a place for the Spaniard in their 15-man squads.

We take a look at each player’s recent form, comparing their displays to previous performances in order to ascertain whether there’s been a reason for a sudden shortage of Fantasy points:

      the defence is a bit too weak, but you know that already so I guess that's the way you want to play it...
      I would however find an extra 1.5 to get clichy, nastasic, j.evans or azpilicueta. you already have 0.7 in the bank so less than that in fact.

        Hi good Biashara you are right about the def and the funds, cs seem to be a rare feature this season, considering downgrading Michu based on your sugesstion though...

            Nastasic, definitely. Nailed on for City and I think he'll also score a goal before the end of the season. Hopefully I can soon find a week with no other transfer issues to bring him in for free!

            Ok, off now... Good luck man.

    Thinking of getting Demps instead of Bale.
    Will probably play up top for 2-3 games depending on Ade and Defoe’s return.

    The thing is I will probably will have to take him out for a hit later on when he stop starting.
    Or maybe keep him but play my 5th mid before transferring him out.

    Yes or no?

    Best Defoe replacement for one week only (will wildcard after). Have 8.7, so can't afford Ba

      similar to a lot of teams you see here but that doesnt have to be a bad thing! good to go I'd say, with the exception of wilkinson who I wouldn't want in my team, he's far from nailed on.

    So I’m thinking of bringing in Suarez next round.

    Dropping ba and Gibbs for Suarez and a cheap defender (I already have Zab and evra, and will play those 2 plus one of 3 cheap defenders depending on match ups each week).

    My front line would then be RVP, Suarez and Sturridge. (I could see the two Pool strikers forming a great partnership, but we will see,,,)

    So here’s the thing.

    Because of the cost the rest of my team (includes fellaini, mata, Walcott, Santi, punch as well as evra, zaba, clubs, Demel, etc…) I don’t have much space to move on finances for this swap.

    If both Ba falls by .1 and Suarez rises by .1 I can’t make the switch (without making a 3rd change).

    I’d like to do this next week as I’ve already made this weeks change.

    So what’s the likely timeline of those price changes?

    Thanks!

    James

    I know it's not exactly a great source, but Defoe missed out with a hip injury. AVB is playing it down saying he's likely to be back for Norwich midweek but somehow i don't think so. Defoe was only talking about Leeds last night and looking forward to it, suggesting he aggravated it today. I'm no physio, but I don't see a hip injury recovered in 3 days if it kept him off the team sheet today.

    I reckon Dempsey up front for the next game at least, but that's just my opinion
