    Morning all,

    WC on (don’t ask), have avoided asking for advice so far, but think I may need some very quick opinions.

    a) VVD, Laporte, McGinn and Auba (switching to Kane next week)

    b) Robertson/TAA, Coleman, KDB and Jiminez

    Many thanks, and good luck!

    Thanks Init for the previous suggestion! So am I good to go here? I think Tielemans will do better against Chelsea than Moura against City! Deulofeu has one more game to prove himself! I’m going with Salah captain.

      Zed Leppelin says:

      Yeah it’s a tough one, Moura could do very well on the counter against City, it’s not a straightforward choice… In this case I would trust your gut and you’re good to go! I’m on Salah cap as well, wouldn’t overthink it, it’s Saints he’s playing against!!! smile
