FPL GW24 Review
In a week where Liverpool officially conceded the title, Burnley had a Puskas contender and your arrows where determined by your Gundogan, we need something to make sense of it all. In this verdict, I will review 5 talking points of this gameweek, and help you make your decisions for Gameweek 25
Fulham’s new Majic Man
If you watched the Netflix documentary Sunderland Till I Die, you would have known about Josh Maja .
An academy graduate sold to Bordeaux to generate funds, he was loaned to Fulham to solve the goal scoring crisis at Fulham. Nothing more impressive could have happened than Majic Maja scoring twice on his first start for Fulham against Everton.
Everything is there to say that Fulham could stay up this season, and if one man is to be a part of it, it’s Josh Maja
Tuchel Snooker between the posts
You’ve heard of Pep Roulette, now you have Tuchel Snooker.
A manager who likes to rotate, Thomas Tuchel put Kepa back in goal for the first time since GW05 and the custodian earned a Clean Sheet and maximum bonus to ensure that he is right back in everyone’s plans.
Priced quite nicely for this stage of the season, if Mendy is kept on the bench, he could become a nice option. Watch out, though, as he is at risk of being rotated.
Two sides of Manchester
The two sides of Manchester had very different gameweeks.
The blue half had a double gameweek, winning both games and built a 10-point lead at the top. FPL managers’ gameweek was defined by whether Ilkay Gundogan was in their team. A 19-point haul wasn’t enough for him to be the King of the Gameweek, but he still did give many people false hope of 100 points. With KDB coming back, doubts should start to creep in.
On the red half, it was Bruno Fernandes digging them out of a hole yet again. Not much to say, except their defence looks like a China vase; very fragile and prone to breaking.
High for Low
A 17-pointer for Matthew Lowton was the headline as far as Burnley assets are concerned but it was the style of the goal that is noteworthy.
An absolute firecracker that ultimately made everyone else pay and should win the Puskas award, but this should be interesting from an FPL point of view.
Having scored that goal, he could either start using his license to attack a little more, or it could be a false dawn and anyone who jumps on the bandwagon gets brought down. A great week for him, let’s see where he (and his FPL owners) go from here.
Leeds and Southampton at the double
Leeds and Southampton will have a double gameweek on GW25 and early stats suggest that FPL managers are flocking to Leeds assets.
The best players to pick from those teams would probably be Bamford and Raphinia, but Dallas has proven popular as well.
Southampton are struggling, but Danny Ings is very influential at his best.
If you want a differential, Jack Harrison often goes under the radar, but plays just as good as Raphinia, and Che Adams is also another player who is in the shadows of someone else.
Watch out, however, for Kalvin Phillips, as he is, at time of writing, at a 50% chance of playing, and he is the creative spark in the way Leeds play. To sum up, Leeds assets are where the value is at, so try to avoid Southampton players.
