Son Heung-Min has been replaced by Paul Pogba due to a difficult set of fixtures.
Chelsea put their past behind as two goals in the second half allowed The Blues to get the better of their London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge. Arsenal trounced a Bournemouth side thanks to a brilliant display from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil, while Liverpool saw off Watford comfortably, with Virgil van Dijk grabbing a brace in a 5-0 victory. Manchester City was made to work hard for three points by West Ham while a weakened Manchester United side got the better of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Gameweek 28 Review
It was a redeeming week, captain Sergio Aguero had 18 points as he scored the lone goal in Manchester City’s victory over West Ham. Sadio Mane’s brace got him 13 points while Andrew Robertson also got 13 points thanks to a clean sheet and two assists. Alisson Becker ended the week with 7 points while Nathan Redmond’s assist in his side’s 2-0 victory against Fulham got him six points. Richarlison got three points while Heung-Min Son, Ryan Fraser and Ricardo Pereira got 2 points each. Marcus Rashford only made a substitute appearance and Matt Doherty got a yellow card giving both only one point each.
Gameweek 29 Transfers
Son Heung-Min has a set of difficult fixtures coming up. The South Korean is a prime candidate for replacement. He is transferred out for Paul Pogba. The Manchester United man has been in sparkling form since the change in manager and he looks set to continue in the same vein for the coming weeks.
Joshua King’s lack of performance also raises problems. The Bournemouth striker can be replaced by Raul Jimenez or Ashley Barnes. However, he is kept for one more week.
