There’s changes to be made for the Gameweek 19 team.
With two transfers available, how are they utilised for the Boxing Day round of fixtures?
Gameweek 19 Squad
Here is the shape of the Gameweek 19 team ahead of Wednesday’s 11:30 deadline.
The team is currently ranked at 6.7k after a 2k drop last gameweek. Team value is at 104.1 million, with 1,143 overall points and two free transfers.
There are some issues in the team: Ryan is out of form and has just one match left before the Asian games. Alonso and Laporte are underperforming but have some promising fixtures. Fraser and Wilson have a poor run of fixtures. Sterling has been underwhelming in recent weeks.
A lack of Manchester United players given their form and upcoming fixtures is a concern. A downgrade of Sterling to Sane was considered. With some uncertainty over which Brighton backup will get the nod for Ryan, a transfer between the sticks is imminent.
Rotation is inevitable for Gameweek 19 with Alonso, Sterling and Wilson looking like the biggest risks. There’s also a captaincy dilemma to cope with for the Gameweek 19 team.
Gameweek 19 Team
After considering a number of options, the moves made were Ryan and Wilson out, with Fabianski and Rashford coming in. Fabianski has a much better fixture this week, plus it’s a move needed next week anyway. Rashford wasn’t the favoured Manchester United asset, he’s a short-term punt but it was an easy switch to make. Here’s how the Gameweek 19 team lines up.
There were some benching dilemmas here, with a favourable fixture for Wan-Bissaka. Camarasa also came into consideration given his form and penalty taking duties. However, these two will likely be needed anyway so we are leaving things to fate a little here.
The captaincy choice was between Kane and Salah. In reality, neither are absolutely certain to start, but Kane poses the lesser risk given the difficulty of Liverpool’s upcoming fixtures. The Bournemouth defence is weaker than Newcastle’s too. Either Kane or Salah seem good options for your Gameweek 19 team though.
