Gameweek 1 Reviews

From time to time we will be posting gameweek reviews from the FPL Surgery Slackers. This week we have reviews from Luke Jerdy (18/19 rank: 9,009), Stephan Haugsrud (18/19 rank: 1,710) and the Iceman (18/19 rank: 2,243).

Jerdy’s Watchlist

Here is a list of players that have caught Luke’s eye from GW1.

Pukki – great first touch and finish, caused the best defence for clean sheets last season lots of problems. Could he be the best option at £6.5m? More time to assess as they play Chelsea and City in the next 4.

Buendia – lovely pass for the Pukki goal, he looks confident on the ball, decent price but would prefer him at £5.5

KdB – one of the best players on the pitch, looks well up for this season and wants to make up for lost time. Firmly in my thoughts.

Trezeguet – got in the right areas for Villa and had a few chances. Remains to be seen if he is clinical enough. Subbed off at 58 mins, will earn him a shout out on the General’s pod.

McGinn – lovely run and finish, he was everywhere. Could be a great £5.5 enabler.

Kane – Harry doing what Harry does, primarily causing me a headache. Took his goals well, he’s fresh, he’s hungry. 25-30 goals looks to be a good bet. Can we fit him in with Sterling and Salah? Sacrifices would have to be made elsewhere, at the moment I don’t fancy playing Lundstram!

Femenia – will be interested to see his stats, looked lively at RB for Watford. Can’t see them keeping CS though.

Zaha – is he better than Siggy for a £1.0 saving? He is the type of player that will want to force someone into paying £80m+ for him in the next window. Very interested in Wilf.

Rico – nice option at £4.0? Took some set-pieces. Won’t be interested until first wildcard if he can hold down a place in their team.

Barnes – he has improved his goal tally every year and from this evidence he could get more than 12 this season. Really good finisher, could become the best £6.5 option quite quickly. From GW5-14 Burnley only play Chelsea from the top-6. Oosh!
