Taking the proper path.

Unicorn! Is he really a defender?

“Our fate is shaped by the choices we make in life -- every step in the right direction as well as each misstep -- and although I cannot alter the past, the proper path remains, and I will see you on it.”

Paraphrased from the mouth of Titus in the renowned action drama Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, this insightful message perfectly puts things into perspective as we head into week 25. Behold my attempt to see you on proper path.

*

Keepers

Karl Darlow (£4.4, Newcastle v. Burnley)

Started the last four games in the league with two clean sheets.

Alex McCarthy (£4.4, Southampton v. Brighton)

Another who has been between the posts for the previous four games, good home fixture to keep a clean sheet.

Ederson (£5.6, Manchester City v. West Brom)

I believe West Brom used up all their January goals against Liverpool in the FA Cup.

*

Defenders

Moritz Bauer (£4.5, Stoke City v. Watford)

Slotted in seamlessly and productively.

Hector Bellerin (£6.1, Arsenal at Swansea)

With two goals in the past three games he may tell the manager there’s no need for Aubameyang.

Marcos Alonso (£7.3, Chelsea v. AFC Bournemouth)

Do I need to say anything?

*

Midfielders

Riyad Mahrez (£8.7, Leicester City at Everton)

Everton have conceded nine in the previous four league games. Mahrez has recaptured his player of the year form.

Raheem Sterling (£8.9, Manchester City v. West Brom)

Cheaper than Kevin De Bruyne. Goal in the FA Cup.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (£5.4, Stoke v. Watford)

New manager boost time for Stoke? He’s a cheap option to find out.

Mo Salah (£10.2, Liverpool at Huddersfield Town)

He’s not in my team and I’m terrified. Lesson here, do as I say not as I do.

Eden Hazard (£10.6, Chelsea v. Bournemouth)

He is in my team.

*

Strikers

Sergio Aguero (£11.8, Manchester City v. West Brom)

A man in supreme form, the West Brom defense must be having nightmares.

Harry Kane (£13.0, Tottenham v. Manchester United)

Incredibly difficult fixture, but Kane is as fixture proof a player at there is around.

Alexandre Lacazette (£10.3, Arsenal at Swansea)

Was very tempted to take a punt on Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but let’s go with the Frenchman after he ended his drought in the last game.

That’s it friends, time for us to finish strong and climb our mini-league tables. Who are you transferring in this game week?
