Hands up if you’re among the 13% of Dream Team managers who were badly burned by Kalidou Koulibaly (£5m) on Sunday.
As a member of a defence who conceded three goals at Elland Road, the Chelsea centre-back was already destined for minus points before he committed a professional foul on Joe Gelhardt (£1.5m) in the 84th minute, his second bookable offence.
He played out the customary bemused act that all players do upon seeing a red card thrust in their direction but having been shown his first yellow for a very similar offence earlier in the game, the 31-year-old would have known he made a bad day worse for Thomas Tuchel and his Dream Team backers.
When all was said and done, Koulibaly incurred minus five points, undoing the good work he did against Spurs in Game Week 2.
This is a significant development in the realm of Dream Team as he’s currently the ninth-most popular player in his position.
The Blues’ performance and Koulibaly’s imminent one-game suspension will have compounded the club’s fondness for Wesley Fofana (£2.9m).
Chelsea have been openly pursuing the 21-year-old centre-back who skipped Leicester’s home defeat to Southampton on Saturday amid uncertainty over his future.
According to reports, the player is keen on a move to Stamford Bridge but the Foxes quite rightly feel they can demand a massive fee, especially given the recent transfer of Marc Cucurella’s (£3.2m).
Sunday’s result at Elland Road may have changed the outlook somewhat but Dream Team bosses should be aware of Fofana’s potential as a viable asset if he does complete the switch.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have been very poor at the back for a while now so the Frenchman has failed to provide suitable returns recently – let’s not forget he was also sidelined for a long spell through injury.
In theory, he should find clean sheets easier to come by under Tuchel’s watch – seven Chelsea assets finished inside Dream Team’s top 14 defenders last term.
While it seems Todd Boehly will have to fork out a huge sum of cash to acquire Fofana’s services, Dream Team gaffers can recruit him for just £2.9m, which would potentially excellent value if immediately became a regular starter.
For comparison, Thiago SIlva (£5.1m) would set you back an additional £2.2m.
And wouldn’t you know it, Chelsea welcome Leicester to Stamford Bridge in Game Week 4.
Wouldn’t that be a fun debut for Fofana?
