We’ve made one transfer this week, with Roberto Firmino coming in for Alexandre Lacazette, an improvement of 0.66 points (4.47 – 3.81). With Lacazette’s and Arsenal’s fixtures getting worse over the coming weeks, and with Sadio Mane coming back into the fold for Liverpool, the Reds’ form could massively improve, and usually with Salah and Mane around him, Firmino’s form improves massively. Liverpool play Southampton at home next week too, while Arsenal play Spurs, then Burnley away, two tough fixtures. Lacazette is also likely to drop tonight, so be aware that you’ll lose some value if you wait until tonight.
Loftus Cheek is our first substitute due to Arsenal’s likelihood of conceding more than one. RLC could perform brightly against a depleted Spurs side, while two goal Dele Alli could strike gold against a poor Palace side. It’ll be a tough week. With an international break, and a European fixture prior to the week, its unknown if certain players will start, or play, cough, cough, Sterling.
