    TAA Robertson Doherty WB
    Salah Sterling Sane Richarlison
    Higuain Rondon
    (Stek, Bednarek Gunarrson Ings)

    A) Sane -> Hazard
    B) Sane Ings -> Brooks Vardy (-4)

    Haven’t taken many hits this season but Leicester & Bournemouth fixture this week tempting me to do B

      Would you take a -4 next week otherwise? If so I would do it this week.

    usually I know what I need to do but this week I'm really clueless... about transferrs and captain.
    any idea? maybe just a chalsea defender?

    1ft 1.1 itb
    ederson (hamer)
    digne robertson wan (shaw doherty)
    mane salah pogba anderson snodgrass

    What's my best option ? All options would give me 11 for GW31 and GW33

    A) Firmino, Hazard and A.Smith

    B) Mane, Vardy, Pereira (for a hit)

    C) Hazard, Vardy and Chiwell (for a hit)

    The forwards would be purchased this GW for a hit (if necessary, I already have Firmino), and the defender with my FT next GW.

      I would keep Firmino if you already have him. So A for me.

    Trent, Pereira, Robbo
    Felipe, Son, Salah, Pogba
    Jimenez, Aguero, Vardy
    Bench: Speroni, AWB, Snodgrass, Stankovic.

    Kun + Son > Higuain & Hazard for -4 after this week?
