Hi everyone, this is a weekly blog post where we document changes to our team based on bookie’s odds. We have been doing this since game week one and have shared with you our progress and regression thus far. This is not a wildcard XI, or a team of the best possible players, this is an actual team which we have had since GW1 and have made changes to throughout the season. Currently, we’re 530,688th in the world and aim to be top 1% by the end of the season with the help of the bookies. To view the team click the following link: OddsonFPLTeam

This week we’ve made one transfer. Nacho Monreal 3.65 expected points for Harry Maguire of Leicester who is expected to score 4.62 points. With Monreal facing up against Manchester United it’s far more likely for the Spaniard to concede against Lukaku than it is for Maguire to concede against Sam Vokes. With Leicester playing Burnley, Newcastle, Southampton and Crystal Palace in their next 4 game weeks he is set up to have a good run of form and could grab an assist or a goal if recent form is anything to go by. Monreal has a home fixture to United followed by two away fixtures and then Liverpool in 5 game weeks time. It looks a good time to drop your Arsenal players.
There was a consideration to go from Alli to Mané, but against a Watford side which conceded 4 against United and 2 home fixtures coming up, it seems a bad time to drop the out of form midfielder. Hazard is this week’s captain after he was benched midweek. He can’t hurt us again, can he? The team is expected to have a decent tally with 57.62 points expected this week. A sum which we didn’t even get close to last week.
4.11 + 5.14 + 4.62 + 4.14 + 4.64 + 12.44 + 5.11 + 4.13 + 4.3 + 3.62 + 5.37
