I normally comment on world affairs and make a smart comment, but it’s too serious, too depressing so let’s move on.
GW29 Defender: Andy Robertson, Liverpool
He’s in better form than Trent Alexander-Arnold, he’s owned by almost 40% fewer players, and he hasn’t played and blanked since GW17, remarkably.
Away fixtures down south to Brighton and Arsenal are on the horizon, after which he can have a lovely rest while Tsimikasplays the FA Cup game against Forest.
Yep, that’s definitely the plan.
GW29 Midfielder: Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City
Pep revealed after the Manchester derby that he had told KDB that he needed to focus on scoring as well as assisting goals.
Kevin promptly went out and scored two and assisted one.
One wonders whether Pep regrets not instructing Kevin to score a bit earlier in the season? We’ll never know.
GW29 Forward: Harry Kane, Spurs
Five goals. One assist. Three double-digit hauls.
That’s how Harry has fared in his last four games.
Less than 20% own him y’know. He faces United and Brighton this week.
This is not complicated, people.
GW29 Captain: Mo Salah, Liverpool
He hit more wood in midweek than a lumberjack.
Somebody is going to feel the wrath of Salah, and I bet it’s Brighton and Arsenal. If Salah is playing twice, you Captain him, no questions asked.
GW29 Outsider: Martin Odegaard, Arsenal
Five goals and three assists, married to a growing influence on this young Arsenal side means that a DGW for Odegaard may be too good to ignore.
