I struggled over the Xmas break. I opted not to use the free chip that we were given and took a -4 hit instead to remove Salah and bring in Ronaldo. Backfired completely with Ronaldo drawing a blank against Newcastle.
Think the decision paid off this week though as Ronaldo did well last night and Salah missed his penalty!
I was trying to think ahead to AFCON by removing Salah now.
My only gripe this week (other than the usual failure of my 2 Chelsea players to keep clean sheets) is that I took another -4 hit to remove Guaita and bring in Lloris, as my other GK (Ramsdale) wasn't playing. Guatia hasn't played much but of course comes back in for Butland and keeps a clean sheet, and Lloris didn't!
