FPL Hints - Gameweek 8

FPLH's GW 8 Team*

Transfers (OUT): S Taylor
Transfers (IN): JA Riise

*FPLH reserves the right to change this team at any time. Any changes made will be confirmed on FPLH's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Team Selection Reasoning

After a few below par Gameweeks you may think that I would radically tinker with my team.  Not so.  I am confident that I can bounce back in Gameweek 8, especially due to the fact that 9/11 of my first team players are at home.  The only change I have actioned for this week is to sell S Taylor (a doubt) with dodgy upcoming fixtures for the ever attacking JA Riise.  He may not be a prolific goalscorer from defence as he was at Liverpool, but his attacking prowess still exists.  In fact he has assisted in his last two league matches.  I am confident he can obtain more FPL points in the upcoming weeks due to the aforementioned fixtures:

GW 8 - Aston Villa (H) - Strong clean sheet potential
GW 9 - Reading (A) - Strong clean sheet potential
GW 10 -  Everton (H) - Mild clean sheet potential
GW 11 - Arsenal (A) - Mild clean sheet potential
GW 12 - Sunderland (H) - Strong clean sheet potential
GW 13 - West Brom (H) - Strong clean sheet potential

Despite Suarez diving a fair bit and failing to score versus a dogged Stoke, I have decided to captain him again as he faces Reading's leaky defence.  The vice captain is Michu as I feel that he too can take advantage the Latics touch and go defence.  Let's hope for the best this time around!

Recommended Player for Gameweek 8

John Arne Riise

Has assisted twice in his last two league matches
Is Fulham's first choice left back
