Every one of your fantasy football rivals suddenly owns Steve Mounie

He hadn’t scored since Gameweek 16

All of the FPL managers you want to beat this gameweek inexplicably brought in the 0.8% owned Steve Mounie hours before the deadline, it has been revealed.

Mounie, the oft-rotated striker for a Huddersfield team that hasn’t scored more than 2 goals in a single Premier League game since December, was only transferred in by 27 players this week, but all of them happened to be competing in your mini-league.

His 15 point haul means you’ve fallen 10 places into 13th, despite captaining Sergio Aguero on Saturday.

Gary, the accountant who works in the office adjacent to yours, talked us through his bizarre yet expert decision-making. “I knew Huddersfield were due a haul because I saw a car’s number plate on Friday afternoon that started with “HUD”. I don’t usually believe in that sort of thing, but how can you ignore a slap in the face like that?”

Paul from HR employed similar reasoning. “Harry Kane missed a penalty last week, so it was obvious I needed to get rid. I decided on Steve Mounie because I liked the cut of his jib. That’s all there is to it.” Paul, who hadn’t made a transfer since Gameweek 5 prior to this week, now finds himself hovering just behind 1st place with all of his chips still intact.

He sits 117 points above you.
