In this Fantasy Football lark, the big thing to get right is your choice of captain.  Get that right and it hardly matters what the rest of team does.  Get it wrong and … goodbye.

Apart from that, you need to make sure that the right players are on the bench.  This week we say goodbye to one team precisely because of leaving Otamendi on the bench.  If it’s any consolation, I left Calvert-Lewin kicking his heels and played Morata because, well because it was obvious.

At least I didn’t make the trek up to Burnley – well done if you did.  Still, Palace tonight, it’s freezing.
