*Due to #GW25 starting early in the week, we will know the line-ups for Tuesday in advance. I probably won't make any late transfers, but I reserve the right to shuffle my team around if I know some won't start, i.e. Cazorla or Walcott being benched.
I benched Defoe last week and lost out on 7 precious points which saw my slide down the rankings. I should remember not to bench a striker, right? Wrong. I will probably do it again. I know Kane has form on his side, but Liverpool have transformed into the best in-form defence with 4 clean sheets out of 4. I think Kane is due a blank GW and it could happen at Anfield. However, as stated above, I could still put him into my first team if one of my Arsenal players don't start. I think Hazard is a safe captain pick due to Chelsea's form and his performances at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this season. Looking ahead, I plan on using 1 transfer in GW26 and hopefully 1 again in GW27. I will then use the free transfer (FT) for DGW28. Let's see how things pan out. Good luck!
