Godin, Lukaku, Pastore and a OTW headline in week 27
Last week’s score 14/23 Formation: 3-4-1-2 - Squad link:http://www.futhead.com/17/squads/5288147/
Timo Horn - GK - OVR 82 I found it nigh on impossible to select gold keepers this week. There were a couple of Silver ones which stood out but with the amount of hat tricks they became unavailable. One keeper which is possible comes with Horn who claimed a 1.5 from Kicker but with another obvious Koln choice there is no guarantee that he will make it.
Sead Kolasinac - LB - OVR 77 Kolasinac was snubbed in favour of Burgstaller last week but there is no chance of it happening again after the Bosnian defender scored the only goal of the game in Schalke's 1-0 win over Mainz.
Diego Godin - CB - OVR 88 Truth be told it was not the best performance that Godin has ever put in but with the lack of gold defenders and the lack of big names he could well make the side. The Atletico defender scored one claimed 2 from Marca and more importantly made it into their TOTW.
Eric Bailly - CB - OVR 82 There was a severe lack of BPL options and pack sellers this week. The obvious option was Cahill for this spot but apart from his goal he didn't really do much. I have taken a huge punt and gone with OTW Bailly. The United defender has looked impressive all season and another brilliant defensive performance from him in their 3-1 win over Mboro could see his OTW get a nice little boost.
Lorenzo Insigne - LW - OVR 84 I was wrong in predicting Insigne last week so why not try again this time. Once again, the Italian winger found the net twice with one being from the spot. This saw him claim MOTM with a 7.5 after Napoli managed to hold out to a 3-2 away win over Empoli.
Javier Pastore - CM - OVR 85 Pastore claimed MOTM with an 8/10 from L'equipe for his performance in PSG's narrow 2-1 win over Lyon. In such a big game an 8/10 is never going to be ignored. The Argentine picked up both the assists and I still can't believe that he is 27...
Casemiro - CM - OVR 83 There was a lack of gold performances this week and in fact I could have easily made a 23-man squad with purely Silver and Bronze items. That falls into the likes of Casemiro's hands though with the competition being lower. The Brazilian scored one of Madrid's two goals in their 2-1 win claiming MOTM with a 3 rating from Marca
Zlatko Junuzovic - CM - OVR 79 Junuzovic is one of the best all round midfielders you can get in terms of FUT without having to spend a ton and a cheap IF now looks to be on the way after he managed both a goal and assist in Bremens surprise 3-0 win over RBL.
Romelu Lukaku - ST - OVR 84 At the rate Lukaku is going I would be surprised if Real Madrid don't come knocking. The Belgian powerhouse just can’t stop scoring and now leads the charts with 21 goals after bagging another two alongside an assist in Everton’s 4-0 win over Hull
Anthony Modeste - ST - OVR 82 Modeste has been one of the stars in the Bundesliga this season and has come from nowhere. The 28-year-old striker added another three to his tally against Hertha to take him to an impressive 22.
Alejandro Gomez - ST - OVR 81 Gomez is a similar story to Modeste in the sense that he is having an outbreak season from nowhere. Once again, he helped Atlanta to some points after being involved in all their goals. Two of his own alongside an assist is what he managed in their 3-0 win over Pescara.
Craig Dawson - RB - OVR 67 West Brom continued their impressive home form with a 3-1 win over the struggling Arsenal who look a different side with manager and star player troubles. WBA took advantage well though and with their RB, Dawson getting his name on the scoresheet twice I am sure we will see him included in TOTW.
Blerim Dzemaili - CM - OVR 74 The first of three players potentially making the switch from a silver to a gold item is Dzemaili. The Swiss midfielder found the net twice for Bologna in their 4-1 home win over Chievo.
Barry McNamee - CM - OVR 60 We saw a rather random Irish IF in Corcoran last week, presumably for st Patrick’s day but either way random to say the least. McNamee would be more expected though after the midfielder scored three times in Derry's 4-0 home win.
Adem Buyuk - ST - OVR 72 The likelihood is that there will not be this many silver and bronze players but I would rather increase my score than include players that am pulling out the sky and thus I have opted for Buyuk who scored a hat trick during Kasimpasa's 3-2 win.
Kylian Mbappe Lottin - ST - OVR 71 Mbappe is slowly becoming one of the most hyped youngsters around and with 18 goals in 18 starts for Monaco this season it's no wonder. He scored another two this weekend as Monaco managed a 3-0 away win over Caen
Diego Rolan - ST - OVR 78 Rolan scored twice for Bordeaux in their convincing 5-1 home win over Montpellier. His performance saw him claim 8/10 from L'equipe which as we have seen time and time again in the past is usually enough to get you in.
Ignacio Scocco - ST - OVR 72 Thankfully Scocco already has an IF and thus would be gold should he make the side again this week. This helps the selection process with the amount of silver and bronze players performing to a high standard and increases his chances massively. The Argentine scored all three N.O.B goals in their 3-0 home win over Velez.
Sean McConville - LM - OVR 61 Despite this game being played on a Tuesday it really would be unfair if Accrington were not to receive an IF. McConville is the best choice by far after he scored two and assisted another three in their 5-0 win however their LB, Pearson also scored two and is in with a shout. From LM to be involved in five goals is quite something though.
Kamil Wilczek - ST - OVR 72 I think it's safe to say that Brondby are going to come second this season, after another win this weekend they are 13 points above third but still 12 behind first. Wilczek was vital for them in the 3-2-win scoring all their goals.
Nabil Ghilas - ST - OVR 72 Ghilas was heavily involved in a 4-3 thriller where his side came out on top after the Algerian managed to bag himself a hat trick. Claiming multiple headlines in a high scoring game should stand out.
Federico Dionisi - ST - OVR 73 There were a literal ton of top performances from Silver and bronze players this week which would have resulted in me struggling to select the 7 substitutes let alone trying to wriggle that down to five. Dionisi is one of the many players to score three goals which usually would make him a certainty but who really knows this week it comes down to pot luck.
Cheick Diarra - ST - OVR 68 Tours jumped out of the relegation positions in style winning 4-0 away to Valenciennes. Their striker was the main man behind the performance scoring three of the four goals and thus takes home the match ball
