The Gameweek 27 of the EPL was quite fascinating bearing upsets for big teams as well as some good wins. The week started off with disappointment for FPL team makers with Arsenal being held 1-1 to Burnley. The biggest dismay was yet to come through and it happened with a 0-1 loss of Liverpool to Fulham. After that, there were some familiar results for the big sides with United pulling off a 2-0 win at Etihad. Tottenham also won quite convincingly to Crystal Palace with a scoreline of 4-1. Chelsea also regained their form after the United draw and won 2-0 to an in-form Everton. Lastly, West Ham United finished the week’s proceedings with a tricky 2-0 win to Leeds United. In this Gameweek 28 of the FPL, we would select our team keeping in mind the fixtures for this week.
We would also ensure that the best team is made out by using least amount of money.
