Rotation last weekend could spell good news for the lineup this week, with fresh legs bringing greater promise of captaincy points.

Gameweek 20 Review
Gameweek 20 was marred by rotation and a captaincy fail. Kevin De Bruyne, Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold delivered the only significant points. Predictably, all three substitutes were needed, with just 8 starters. 3 players came in for a 1-point cameo, but any points were gratefully received to reach 49 points. The team is now out of the Cup. It ended up being a red arrow and a drop of 100k places to around 300k.
Gameweek 21 Team
There’s two free transfers this week and plenty of flexibility. I’m generally happy with the team right now, with just Matt Targett a thorn in the side. A straight swap for Diego Rico seems logical, he’s cheap and the Cherries have great upcoming fixtures. It’s a hold through injury for John Lundstram, who was purchased for just 4 million at the very start of the season.
There are plans to move Nick Pope on once he’s got through this game against Aston Villa, with fixtures taking a turn for the worse. We are spoilt for choice with captain options, but I can already see Jamie Vardy’s new baby celebration so he gets the nod. Kevin De Bruyne seems certain of minutes, so he receives the Vice Captain chip. Final moves will be locked in after Friday’s press conferences.
The team is ranked at 312,096 with 1129 points. All chips are still in tact. Team value lies at £105.3 million, with £0.4 million in the bank.
