FPL GAMEWEEK 33: TEAM SELECTION

After carefully observing each game from Matchweek 32, we have built a squad that are most likely to fetch points in this weeks FPL. A bag of mixed results last matchweek and some setbacks that we will discuss ahead of this match week. Sheffield Utd became the first team of the season to be relegated after losing against Wolverhampton last week. Meanwhile, celebrations commenced at Carrow Road after Norwich City won their promotion back to the Premier League after relegation last season. They wasted no time to get back to the top.  Before we get started, please note that Manchester City, Tottenham, Southampton and Fulham do not have any fixtures this week so do not forget to bench their respective players for this week’s FPL. So, without further ado, let’s begin with the goalkeeper’s selection.

GOALKEEPERS

Rui Patricio (£5.3- WOL):  2 cleansheets in his last 2 matches. Although, he did face comparatively weaker teams in his last 2 matches, the upcoming fixture might not be as different. Wolves face Burnley this week and home team are the favourites to win.

DEFENDERS

FPL DEFENDERS

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5- LIV):  2 assists and a match winning goal in his last 3 matches. He has been under a lot of scrutiny off late regarding his inability to break into the English squad. But his recent performances have shut all the critics for good. Now all eyes are on the English gaffer Gareth Southgate to include the young fullback in the Euros 2020 squad. Speaking of his selection in this week’s FPL, Liverpool are set to face Newcastle. An easy fixture on paper given but not to be taken lightly.

Luke Shaw (£5.2- MUN):  Man Utd are in top form currently with 5 wins in their last 5 PL matches. A goal and 2 assists from Shaw in these last 5 matches but not enough points were earned by the English fullback in FPL. Nonetheless, having him in this week’s FPL would be a fair gamble as they play against Leeds this week. Judging by the Devils’ current form and Leeds’ form, its fair to say we fancy Man Utd to not lose this week.

Lewis Dunk (£4.9- BHA):  2 goalless draws in his last 2 games with an exceptional performance against Everton. An underrated defender who is pushed to work to his limits every week. Currently battling relegation, the Seagulls are set to face the relegated Sheffield Utd who have no other motivation to play but for sheer pride. The Blades are currently on a losing spree and we fancy Brighton to take full advantage of this fixture to stay clear of the relegation zone.

MIDFIELDERS

FPL MIDFIELDERS

Jesse Lingard (£6.2- WHU):  it seems like David Moyes has saved the fate of the Hammers with this loan deal. It will be criminal to not acknowledge this man’s achievement since moving to London this winter. Lingard has already outscored his best tally ever for Man Utd in this short spell with West Ham. His stats speak for himself and no need to explain why he shouldn’t feature in this week’s FPL squad. A potential captain for this week.

Adama Traore (£6- WOL):  2 assists and a goal in his last 3 games. His form might seem like a bag of mixed results but given his recent performances and him finally ending his goal drought, we fancy he contribute in this week’s fixture against Burnley.

Gabriel Martinelli (£4.9- ARS):  this might seem like a questionable suggestion to many but there are 2 main reasons as to why he might earn the points this week. First, the injured pros on the Arsenal bench paving way for the young Brazilian. Second, he is cost effective which would help in getting expensive players for this week. Not to mention, his goal against Sheffield couple weeks ago. A talented lad and we fancy he will contribute this week against Everton.

Mason Greenwood (£7.1- MUN):  he scored his first goal in a long while 3 matches ago against Brighton and hasn’t stopped scoring since. 4 goals and an assist in 3 games for the young midfielder so far. This week, we fancy him contributing in the goals against Leeds Utd.

Mo Salah (£12.6- LIV):  2 goals in his last 3 games. The Egyptian forward has been sloppy this season, inconsistent in his attacking. But Liverpool are looking confident off late with 3 wins in their last 4 matches. This week they are set to face Newcastle at home. A potential captain for this week’s FPL squad. We fancy Salah will be a key figure in this fixture; Liverpool to bag all 3 points.

FORWARDS

Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.8- LEI):  he is having a dream of a season. 13 goals in all competition in this calendar year. Only Harry Kane has more goals than him (15). His match against West Brom was exemplary. 3 goals in his last 2 matches. Not to mention his sole goal against Southampton and a brace against Man Utd in the FA cup finals was nothing short of impressive. Should the Foxes win the FA cup, it will be their first cup since the early 1980s. This week, Leicester face Crystal Palace where we fancy the home team to make the most out of the fixture.

Edinson Cavani (£7.9- MUN):  2 goals and an assist in his last 2 games. the Uruguayan is in top form off late with his pivotal performance in every game in this last couple of weeks. Now that he is a regular starter for the Reds, we don’t expect any less of him this week against Leeds.

SUBSTITUTES

Emi Martinez (£5- AVL)

  1. Eddie Nketiah (£5.3- ARS):  with the likes of Lacazette and Aubameyang out for a significant amount of time, Nketiah will get the green light for the upcoming matches. The youngster was not given much time to play this season but now maybe a chance for him to earn his spot back in the starting XI.
  2. Timothy Castagne (£5.7- LEI): the last match against West Brom, gaffer Brendon Rodgers placed him in the wings and he ended up assisting a goal. Moving Castagne to the wings of the midfield could be a masterclass move given the pace and ball control of the young Belgian. Leicester is set to face Palace this week and he might be a good backup option should anyone in the starting XI fail to feature this week.
  3. Conor Coady (£4.9- WOL):  The Wolves skipper is in a good form lately but his season so far has been pretty inconsistent. Nonetheless, we expect him to do just as well as in his last 2 matches, this week against Burnley.

Total value of the squad= £94.3
