Dugout Discussion – Bournemouth vs Man City

Gameweek 25 concludes at the Vitality Stadium with Bournemouth paying host to Pep Guardiola’s Mancheseter City.

Once again Pep’s teamsheet steals the pre-match headlines, with Gabriel Jesus preferred as his central striker, leaving Sergio Aguero on the bench for a third successive outing.

Transferred in by more than 210,000 ahead of Gameweek 25, Jesus is skippered by 156,000 tonight up against a Cherries defence that has shipped more Premier League goals than any other side in 2017, conceding three or more in eight of their last twelve matches.

That defence is at last bolstered tonight by an array of returnees, as Charlie Daniels, Simon Francis and Adam Smith all overcome knocks to claim berths.

Elsewhere, manager Eddie Howe prefers Jordan Ibe to Junior Stanislas on the right flank, as Josh King again leads the attack.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

          Yeah solid plan. 8 is enough if only 3 games are played

              Cheers, may go Fernandez over Robertson due to Jak in goal and .1 cheaper.

            I'd get Mawson. Goal threat too much to ignore.

          The battle of Hull..

          Robertson or Maguire..
          Who would u choose?

              Maguire

              What would Ville do?
              He picked up Robertson 😛

              Jokes aside, Maguire seems the bigger goal threat, while Robertson seems to be a bigger bps magnet. Almost Azpil/Alonso all over again 😛

                I'll go Robertson decent attacking wise.. Vs lower teams McGuire won't get very high bps but always a threat on set pieces but I'll still go Robert 0.1 cheaper..

                  Before watching the game i would have said Maguire but now i am going with Robertson, he got forward so much and a lot of the attacks came through him and he is cheaper of course.

                I'm on double Brom defence (Foster + Brunt) right now which is a little worrying after the next 2 fixtures.

                Rest of the defence:

                Jaku
                Luiz Coleman Mee Chambers

                Should I get rid of Foster or Brunt after 2-3 GWs or just keep them and upgrade Mee because I want to get rid of him too?

                Appreciate your thoughts.

                    No need for worrying now. A lot can happen

                    I'm dumping Foster for sure after GW 28. Might even downgrade and go Jaku/Pickford, which in your case would allow you to upgrade Mee 😉

                    Alonso - Mcauley - Pieters - Chambers
                    Siggy - Alli - Phillips - Mirallas*

                    Valdez - Sanchez - Ibra - Amat

                    1 FT - 3.7 ITB

                    Have thought about doing Ibra to Costa due to nice run of fixtures on Costa's part. Mirallas I also need to get rid due to lack of playtime and him being flagged. Any tips?
