It’s Tuesday. ¬†It means knee jerk reactions and total punting for Week 2 of the FPL season. ¬†I am truly only half-kidding, but people involved in the chase gonna chase regardless. ¬†Especially with the first few price changes in the books already. ¬†Everyone wants that shiny new bargain toy for a penny cheaper then they just had it. ¬†So with the first Transfer Tuesday post of the year, Smokey is here to guide you down the trail of transfer ideas that may be a little off beat or because I am seeing something that you didn‚Äôt. ¬†Four eyes are better than two, especially when people who are making transfers this early in the week, and making the market climb on a Tuesday. ¬†I don‚Äôt get it, but people get nervous and make irrational decisions, messing it up for everyone else. ¬†So while we live the rational transfer life, here are some transfer ideas for maybe a few days down the road to set yourself up for next week‚Äôs set of matches. ¬†Cheers!
David Luiz, Chelsea – No Cesc, No Cahill and the injured are not good. ¬†Luiz in a perfect situation moves forward and slots next to Kante in the midfield, allowing some more offensive chances for him. ¬†If they actually get some with 11 guys on the pitch this time.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Man United – If he has this much space and comfortableness all year, he may just challenge Christian Eriksen or KDB for the assist lead this season. ¬†He is the perfect wide side facilitator that makes Lukaku and all the Red Devil parts look better when he is on form.
Ahmed Hegazi, West Brom – I get the love after the 14 point effort, and completed 72% of his passses while playing a top notch defense. ¬†The only problem is Baggies played three at the back, does he remain when Captain Johnny Evans and Gareth McAuley are back and fit. ¬†Interesting questions… it’s a wait and see til that day.
Granit Xhaka, Arsenal – A sign 0f things to come for the 5.6 middie. ¬†If the parts around him change or continue to underperform he could be more valuable the players with a bigger price tag.
Steve Mounie, Huddersfield – “The Flashing Terrier” netted two goals and his play from Ligue One translates. ¬†Everyone needs a 6.0 striker to augment there Harry Kane debate. ¬†Seriously is there a debate?
Emre Can, Liverpool – The WORLD is chasing Mane and Salah. ¬†If I wanted invest my money in a Liverpool player that had some flair and on the differential it would Can. ¬†Got an assist and the Reds are going to score a lot and give up a lot too.
Mathias Jorgensen, Huddersfield – Hud looks legit defensively enough that you can have one in a rotation. ¬†Funny where have I heard that before. ¬†Oh that is right I said it a month ago! ¬†Known by Zanka, he is an instant roster addition.
