So finally in week 7 I can be happy with the return from my captain (De Bruyne) and yet as the game week progressed captains remorse built and built. After twenty odd minutes of the first game of the week I had a goal for my captain, assisted by another of my players and they were on their way to a potential clean sheet. With that I could hear the sound of bonus points.
That said this week I was lucky enough to experience a real bench boost. I was tricked into thinking Kompany was fit and had him starting along with Gonmez at Liverpool who appears to have fallen out of favour with Brendan Rodgers. This meant that some of my bench players came in and boy did they contribute. Along with the Cabaye points discussed above I also had West Brom defender Craig Dawson come in and score. An extra 16 points off my bench was very helpful.
I'm well aware that with all this "captains remorse" and my "bench boost" it really is a bit of a humble brag. From all of this I did still have a very good week with a season high 69 points.
