Team Reasoning

Gameweek 29 is upon us - the much feared "Truncated Gameweek"!  A lot of the big guns will not play and will see their matches postponed due to FA Cup matches.  Rather than panic buy mediocre and relegation struggling players, I have decided to opt for a calm approach and only take a -4 hit.

I decided to purchase players who were differentials and had relatively decent upcoming fixtures.  I sold Sagna due to his injury and Arsenal's no show.  I replaced him with Santon due to his sub 5.0 value and 2.1% ownership.  Moreover his regular game time and attacking attributes can't be denied with 4 assists thus far in the PL this season.

My other transfer involved selling Lampard.  As much as I like him, I feel that he may be overshadowed in the goals/assists front by the likes of Oscar, Mata, Hazard and Ba.  I chose to replace Lampard with Coutinho.  He may not have played a full 90 minutes in the PL this season, but he will be key to Liverpool having a good finish.  His demolition of Wigan is testament to his prowess.  I am surprised that only 1.6% own him.  I am so confident of his abilities that I have even made him vice-captain.

My captain for the Gameweek is Sissoko.  He has form on his side.  Newcastle need to string a few more wins to guarantee that they avoid relegation, whereas Stoke have been dire of late.  Stoke will be difficult to beat and score against, but I think Newcastle's French revolution may just be enough to put the guillotine to Stoke!

With the above in mind I have a maximum of 10 players available for GW29, hopefully all will start.  I didn't think it was worth taking a -8 hit with no real big hitters in the picture.  I still have my wildcard at hand.  I will most likely use it after the big teams' DGW, with the final leg of the season in mind.
