FPL GW27 Review
A single gameweek for most teams, GW27 offered up a lot of enjoyable football. We had a Manchester derby that was over in the first minute, Gareth Bale back to his best and the Liverpool losing run showing no signs of slowing down.
Let‘s dissect what went on in GW27, and look ahead to GW28
FPL GW27 Review
Home is where the hell is
You know it’s bad when a teams loses six on the bounce at home. You know it’s even worse when amongst those teams are Brighton, Burnley and Fulham. However Mo Salah, the FPL god for the last few years, gave the ball straight to Mario Lemina for him to record his first Fulham goal.
Having lost 6 in 7, the previous must have players like Salah and TAA look like they are more than just stumbling, and the red banners aren’t the problem.
2 sides of Manchester
Everyone knows that the Manchester Derby is one of the most anticipated games on Earth, but it becoming increasingly clear that Ole loves the Etihad.
The only manager who has played Pep at least 3 times and beaten him more, the plucky manager was delighted when the Boys in Blue decided to go 6 vs 1 on Anthony Martial.
The reward was a penalty in the first minute to delight Bruno Fernandes captainers. In other news, Luke Shaw went on a lung busting run to score their second, and in City’s second game, they abolished Southampton 5-2. A final stat: City have kept the 2nd least Clean Sheets in the last 6, the least being Arsenal.
Blank Gameweek boys
In terms of the blank gameweek teams, there were a few star players.
Spurs beat Palace 4-1, with Bale and Kane chipping in with the goals.
Cresswell grabbed an assist and Lingard latched onto his rebounded penalty as West Ham beat Leeds 2-0. Brighton lost to Leicester 2-1, but showed good signs of intent. Arsenal missed out on a win at Burnley, with Granit Xhaka gifting the ball to Chris Wood, and Newcastle drew 0-0 at West Brom, but it was far from a snooze fest.
Before the final game. I had 56 points and was staring down the barrel of a red arrow, but two goals and two bonus from Kevin De Bruyne saved my gameweek. A green arrow will always be respected by me.
In these next few weeks, a Fulham defender could be a good choice, so I’ve picked out Ola Aina. He has only missed the 60 minute mark twice and before they blank in 33 they have Man City, Leeds, Villa, Wolves and Arsenal, where they could get a few clean sheets. A massive differential as well.
