The Numbers Game – The Promoted Assets

Chelsea and Villa’s assets feature prominently in the top 10 of our ICT Index after Gameweek 1, with the two teams supplying five players between them after opening the season with a pair of fixtures apiece. While many of the usual suspects have made an instant impact, we turn our attentions to the newly-promoted sides and attempt to look for the positives after all three tasted defeat in their opening fixture of the 2013/14 campaign.

    Morrison or Sinclair for West Brom?

    Also is Mirallas worth having?

      Sinclair could be a really good option, especially in Anelka's abscence. Playing on the front left of a 4-3-3 with Long and Vydra could work well for WBA. Morrison likely playing furthest forward in the middle.

      Wait and see for me on WBA, but Sinclair is firmly on my radar.

      Turner & Toure for me.

      I'm basing this on the idea that WHM we shocking away from home last year.

      Although, you're probably looking at the lot of'em netting you 2pts, right?

    Does the team look okay? This is the best I can do with Anelka out and having already taken a -4 hit.:

    Boruc,
    Toure, Coleman, Chester, Murner,
    Hazard, Walcott, Coutinho, Mirallas,
    RVP, Sturridge.

    Davis, Morrison, Brayford, Anelka. (0.4 bank)

    Thoughts appreciated.

    -4 already and now the Anelka news.

    Play:

    A - Kim home to City
    B - Burner home to City
    C - Chester home to Norwich

    B and C mean playing a 4:4:2

      C is only sensible option. Based on last week i would have no problem with 442. My defense averaged 12ppg.

    People seem to be convinced NEW assets are no-goes due to the result against Man City. HBA in particular.

    Could you say that any other side outside the top 8 would've done better in similar circumstances..?

    A reminder of what you get for 7m with HBA:

    Set pieces
    Pens
    Part of a front 3.
    Bullet of a left foot.
    Greedy.
    3 home games out of 4 against winnable teams.

    He's in my side for these reasons. If you agree don't let others put you off.

      I like HBA and think he could be a great differential over the next 3-4 GWs. Definitely the most lively for NEW.

      That said, I had him on and off a couple years ago and he is all or nothing. Weeks without a sniff will be a nightmare and waste of 7M.

      Worth a punt though I say if you already have Mirallas.

    d). Altidore => van Wolfswinkel

    Or sit on them for another week?

      Aspas and RVW have much more pontial over hte next few GWs, Altidore could be a great differential.

      I would likely hang-on, but don't think double Sunderland cover is a good idea regardless.

      Don't you have DGW players to ship?
