Another good week my Bag Full of Lemons Fantasy Football Team with 77 points, however any celebrations have to be dampened by the fact for probably the first time this season all the main players managed to get on the scoresheet, that is as long as they don’t play for Manchester United!
With the attackers doing so well this week it is therefore no surprise my Bag Full of Lemons Giraffe of the week goes to one of their union, Wilfried Bony who, now his taste for the goal has returned, I fully expect to go on a goal scoring streak and banish memories of his recent drought. My Bag Full of Lemons Lemon of the week is awarded to Paul Pogba, with the Frenchman joining last week’s winner, Raheem Stirling, as a two-time winner.
After debating whether to replace Joe Allen with his teammate Shaqiri last week I am glad I resisted the temptation with the Swiss maestro being replaced early in the game against Swansea. With this in mind Joe Allen keeps his place and instead I have decided to replace Heung-Min Son, whose team visit the Emirates at the weekend, with another previous Lemon of the Week, Eden Hazard. Similarly with Spurs travelling to Arsenal I have decided to swap out Vertonghen and bring back Van Dijk, whose Saints team travel to Hull hoping to pile the misery on the Tigers. You may also be surprised that Pogba retains his place in team but with Manchester United travelling to the out of form Swansea I can only repeat what I said last week. If Pogba performs I get points and if he and his team fail? Well I’m still a winner!
