Last week: It's always annoying to transfer in a player at 11.3m and then find out that he's starting on the bench. It's even more annoying when you made the point that this exact player almost always plays. That's how we felt about Sterling (Man City) this last game week. Honestly, we think Guardiola is doing it just to spite us, he probably read our last post and then decided not to play Sterling to get to us personally. Sterling did get 30 minutes on the pitch though, but with not much to show for it. Luckily we did have Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), who single-handedly saved an in all other aspects horrible round. On to next week, where we hope Sterling will prove to be a solid investment. Here's our pick of this weeks ones-to-watch:

Keeper: Fabianski (West Ham) 4.7m

It's not to early too start looking forward to that tricky 31st game week, and West Ham is one of the teams playing, since they are meeting Huddersfield. Other than that they have two relatively easy matches before that against Newcastle and Cardiff, and even though Newcastle is looking very good at the moment, they are not a team that scores a lot of goals, so chances of a clean sheet are definitely there.

Defender: Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) 5.3m

Finally fully over his injury Alexander-Arnold was back in the starting eleven for the first time in six Premier League matches. And what a comeback. 3 assists and a clean sheet. He's really coming back strong and Liverpool is on a rising form. With that in mind 5.3m seems like s steal if he's starting the matches of course, but we suspect he will be from now on.

Midfielder: Kanté (Chelsea) 5.0m

Normally we wouldn't have a player like Kanté on our team. But under Sarri Kanté is playing further up the pitch and creating more chances both for himself and for his teammates. This also shows from his stats. The last two seasons he's noted for one assist and one goal each season in Premier League. This one, however, he's made 3 goals and 4 assists, and with an average point per match of 3.4, there definitely some value in a 5.0m transfer.

Attacker: Lukaku (Man Utd) 10.7m

With 2 goals in the last game, Lukaku was the key player for Man Utd. He has not been as prominent as we would have suspected this season, but 10 goals in 25 games so far is not that bad, and perhaps Solskjær has finally figured out how to get the most out of him.

Player to Avoid: Cairney (Fulham) 4.6

We don't know, why you might have a player like Cairney, but we did for some reason. We think it was the prospect of untapped potential that drew us to a transfer in the first place since he did create a lot last season in Championship, but our time with him has not been successful. He averages at a 2.0 point per game, which pretty much says how much he contributes with - absolutely nothing.

Our Team and Transfers:

Even though our team didn't perform that well last game week, we don't want to do any major changes. We still have a wildcard in hand, but we have other plans with that, and we still feel that this team should be able to produce a lot of points.

We're exchanging Cairney (Fulham) for Kanté (Chelsea) and hoping Sarri will keep turning things around for Chelsea. Sterling (Man City) is still our pick for captain, and then we're gonna hope for more luck this game week.

Ryan (Brighton) is in goal instead of Patricio (Wolves), because we have a feeling Wolves' form will start to decline, now that they are no longer in fear of relegation, but still have 13 points to 6th place.
