Another average week with my team only getting three more points than the average of 46 with Coutino’s absence being a big blow.
From Lemon to Giraffe, Romelu Lukaku¸ wins the Giraffe of the Week despite being in a losing team. At the other end of the scale there were a number of players who vied for Lemon of the Week but I am giving it to Gareth McAuley for picking up a yellow card in what was otherwise an impressive display against Chelsea
After last week’s rejigging to bring in Kelechi Iheanacho I am now able to bring my Stoke contingent up to the maximum allowed of three by swapping the injured Coutinho for Xherdan Shaqiri who goes straight into the team in place of his team mate Ramadan Sobhi. After their lacklustre display against Leicester I am expecting Manchester City to bounce back against Watford and this is why I have decided to take a gamble and make Iheanacho my captain!
