FPL GW30 Review
The end is nigh. 8 more chances to get to the top of your mini leagues and rise up the overall rank. This verdict should help you do that, looking at the talking points of the last gameweek, alongside some Champions League football, and answering this question; should we go without Man City assets.
FPL GW30 Review
Gareth Southgate’s decision to leave Trent Alexander-Arnold (7.3) out of the England squad raised more than a couple eyebrows, but was probably justifiable if you look at his performances this season. Diogo Jota (6.9), on the other hand, outshone everyone for Portugal over the international break.
A big game against Arsenal looming, Trent helps himself to an assist, clean sheet and bonus points whilst Jota scores twice off the bench to carry on his trailblazing form from the first half of the season. Gareth must have paid attention after that game.
Differential Potential Up Top
We are starting to see a lot of potential striker options as we go into the final fixtures. Kelechi Iheanacho (5.8) has been scoring goals for weeks, and after winning March POTM, should get a lot more owners.
Danny Welbeck (5.5) added to his recent goal tally by scoring yet again against Manchester United, and Chris Wood (6.2) has made it 3 in 3 against Southampton. Danny Ings (8.4), also known as Mr Reliable, popped up with two in that same game and a player that has interested me since his arrival, Fabio Silva, netted against a West Ham side who are running short on clean sheets.
Many Wildcards will be played this week, so I would like to express my opinion on who to have.
Martinez (5.4) is a must have, and he should rotate nicely with Mendy (5.2) at GK.
Two defenders each from Wolves and Chelsea would be ideal, as they both have good fixtures and potential for returns, alongside Stuart Dallas (5.1).
Lingard, Fernandes and either Salah or Jota should be your main midfielders, with Raphinha and Neto for rotation, and Iheanacho and Kane as your main strikers, with a differential as rotation.
With Man City’s risk of rotation and four tournaments, it is probably best to avoid them.
It was slightly dissapointing, as I’d had some major rank rises before this week but, alas, a red arrow it was.
Having used my wildcard already, my plan was to swap out my Brighton lads for Wolves players and, fancying Gareth Bale’s chances vs Newcastle, am now cursing Jose Mourinho for bringing him on at 89 minutes for a free kick. A small red arrow to 400k, I plan to swap out Dunk and Bale for Trent and Jota.
Jarred Bowen (5.9) is now on the watchlist, as with a potential Michael Antonio injury, either him or Lingard should be up front.
That should produce a few nice hauls and make the Lingard-Bowen double up a little more enticing.
