The English season is in full swing now with teams competing across competitions to garner supremacy over their rivals. Managers have been digging deep to rotate players in order to avoid overworking players during these grueling months in English football(Fantasy Tips for Gameweek 6)
Teams are settling in, managers are coming to terms with their best combination and players are realizing that the competition is getting fiercer every year.
For the fantasy managers things keep getting trickier every weekend. Injuries infused due to regular matches have marred the plans of almost every Fantasy manager and thus transfers have to be planned not just with respect to the Premier League fixtures but also with respect to what other competitions does that particular team feature in.
With a lot of my key players not deemed fit for the coming few fixtures I feel it is the right time to use my wildcard and get things sorted as soon as possible.
Let’s get to business now!
This is the only category where I stick to my previous choice, as I don’t transfer out both of my goalkeepers.
Foster has been very assured in goal thanks to a very compact defensive set up in front of him and some very reflexive saves from the big man. With West Brom playing Stoke and Sunderland in their next two fixtures, I expect to at least get one clean sheet out of Foster.
My second keeper is always a backup one as I never go ahead and pick him and thus just use the least costly keeper. But this time Pickford has gone ahead and surprised me by getting a chance in goal for Sunderland and performing extremely well too. Sunderland go up against Crystal Palace today which doesn’t guarantee a clean sheet as Crystal Palace have brought in some really influential attackers.
Thus, I would stick with Foster as my first keeper for now but it is good to have a back up keeper worth just 4 pounds, who plays and plays well.
