Togga Perfect XI | PXI – GW36

As the dust settles on the news that Wenger is finally calling it a day at Arsenal after 22 years at the helm, we look back upon GW35 as the week that fantasy football managers had their dreams of a bountiful haul cruelly dashed by Burnley. With the exception of the points return from Tarkowski and Gudmundsson, it was otherwise a forgettable week for the double-gamers.

===================

FF Titan kept his grip on the top spot in Togga PXI by staying away from Burnley players. Looks like it’ll take a lot more to pry the figurative trophy away from the hands of FF Titan.

 

All eyes will be on the Liverpool vs Stoke game but this game will have one element that is the bane of all fantasy football managers: ROTATION. Who will Klopp rest? Will he start Salah then take him off early? This will be a game time decision if you intend to take any players from Liverpool.

 

  • Liverpool vs Stoke City
  • Burnley vs Brighton & Hove Albion
  • Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
  • Huddersfield Town vs Everton
  • Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion
  • Southampton vs AFC Bournemouth
  • Swansea City vs Chelsea
  • West Ham United vs Manchester City
  • Manchester United vs Arsenal
  • Tottenham Hotspur vs Watford

 

Take Note

  • Liverpool vs Stoke City

LIV would probably like to solidify their Champions League status for next season as soon as possible in order to concentrate on winning it this season hence a win at STK would likely set everyone’s mind at ease. But with an eye on the 2nd leg against Roma, players will probably be rested. Definitely a game time decision for LIV players.

 

CHE seem to have found a way of scrapping out wins again hence against a SWA team that hasn’t won in 5 games would be a good way to keep the momentum going.

 

=============================================

GK

  1. Hugo Lloris (TOT) – Against a WAT team that hasn’t scored in their last 6 away games, I’ll say chances of a clean sheet are pretty good.
  2. Loris Karius (LIV) – STK has the least number of points from away games hence I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the LIV keeper will be a good alternative pick.

 

 

 DEF

  1. Cesar Azpilicueta (CHE) – With Alonso ruled out, this will be your next best alternative in the CHE defensive lineup.
  2. Nicolas Otamendi/Kyle Walker (MCI) – Both were unused subs in the game against SWA hence should return to the starting lineup.
  3. Jan Vertonghen (TOT) – Definite starter with a winnable game against WAT and perhaps a clean sheet to go along with it.
  4. Virgil van Dijk (LIV) – Your best bet to get in on the LIV defenders.
  5. James Tarkowski (BRN) – A shoo-in, he should do well against BHA, a team that hasn’t won away from home since Nov 2017.

 

MID

  1. Kevin De Bruyne (MCI) – If he starts, he must be in your squad.
  2. Eden Hazard (CHE) – Came off the bench last week against BRN, he should be back to the starting lineup.
  3. Christian Eriksen (TOT) – Scoring double digits for the past 4 games, no reason why with a game against WAT the streak shouldn’t continue.
  4. Wilfried Zaha (CRY) – Was doing well before the dull stalemate against WAT, he should be back to his fantasy form against LEI, who don’t really have anything to play for anymore.
  5. Sadio Mane (LIV) – Might be a bit of a risk, as he hasn’t played a full 90 minutes for the past 4 games.

 

FWD

  1. Mohamed Salah/Roberto Firmino (LIV) – Pick the one that starts. If all else fails, perhaps you might still want to consider Ings.
  2. Harry Kane (TOT) – Still chasing the golden boot, the game against WAT might be useful for him to play catch up.
  3. Gabriel Jesus (MCI) The main forward for MCI now that Aguero has been ruled out, I definitely expect a goal from him.
