Team Selection Reasoning
Last Gameweek saw a mild improvement in fortunes for the FPLH Blog Team, with a third consecutive net points increase. The Suarez transfer proved a masterstroke as he bagged 20 points, if only I dared to captain him. As for Gameweek 7, I didn't wish to tinker too much as the international break will be shortly upon us once again. I was looking to replace Mertesacker, who is no longer a first team choice, for a cheaper alternative. Ben Davies of Swansea came to mind, especially due to his team's upcoming fixtures:
GW 7 - Reading (H) - Clean sheet potential
GW 8 - Wigan (H) - Clean sheet potential
Swansea haven't kept a clean sheet since August, but I believe they are due one soon against teams that do no travel well. Ben Davies has had a look since Neil Taylor's long-term injury and I believe he will provide value for money. As for my starting XI, it is almost the same, but I have ditched S Taylor to the bench as Newcastle face Manchester United and have given Ben Davies his place. The choice of captain was a tough call between Suarez and Hazard, but I felt form was on Suarez's side thus I opted for him.
