Another bad week for almost everyone, with an average score of 46, which means I am not too disappointed by my miserly 40 points. The big concern for me is Coutinho getting injured and Shawcross being ruled out with a calf injury. Let’s hope The Captain is back for the Burnley game!
After another low scoring week my Giraffe of the Week goes to Victor Moses, who seems to have nailed down the right wing back spot at Chelsea and who was the beneficiary of some woeful defending by Spurs. There were a few nominees for this week’s Lemon of the Week, including myself, but I have decided to award this dubious honour to Romelu Lukaku, a player who runs hot and cold and is currently running sub-zero.
With Sobhi and Bony not getting onto the pitch I have decided to rejig my compulsory three Stoke players and, for this week only, I will have only two. With the uncertainty over Wilfried’s future at Stoke I have decided to transfer the Ivorian out and replace him with Charlie Austin, who’s Saints play Crystal Palace at the weekend, a team who after watching them against Swansea are going to have problems with the type of threat Austin provide.
