FPL GW35 Review
I’m sure we all thought GW35 wouldn’t end, but here we are.
The first Triple Gameweek since 05/06 if my research does me any good, we saw relegation settled, the title awarded and some more cracking players enter the fray for the final gameweeks of the season.
I will yet again unpick the Gameweek with one eye on the run in and another on my Godly captain choice.
FPL GW35 Review – Hunt for Europe
The hunt for Europe is definitely on, with important games all around the park.
- Spurs lost 3-1 to Leeds in a game where the Dallas | Bamford | Raphinha (or DBR) partnership returned.
- Leicester lost emphatically to Newcastle, with Allan Saint-Maximin looking like scoring a hat trick without scoring once, but the Foxes repaired that with the finishing blow at Man United which came in the middle of a 3 games in 5 days run.
- Chelsea beat new Champions Man City before conceding to Emile Smith Rowe in the derby.
- Liverpool had the sort of run that gives any team hope and for the Reds it would put them into 5th. Beating Southampton less convincingly but smashing Manchester United in one of the best games between the sides for a while helps their hunt for Champions League football.
On The Beach
Most positions in the league have already been settled, with relegation and Europe mostly decided.
With 3 gameweeks to go, teams from Brighton to Villa are at risk of playing a lot lazier with not much else to play for.
Teams to target would be Leeds United who never seem to let up, along with Liverpool, Chelsea and West Ham, despite recent performances.
Mason Greenwood has gone on a hot streak and although United have a blank in 36, they will want to secure 2nd place.
Chelsea have only lost 3 times under Tuchel and will want to keep it that way. Kai Havertz has been playing out of position at striker and looks more like scoring than Timo Werner. To sum up, avoid teams with little to play for, and bring in European hunters. Oh, and Leeds.
What a week. 137 points shows a great bench boost, with Dallas and Pope adding to Greenwood, Fernandes, Jota, Trent and Martinez hauls. Nelson Semedo has fallen down the pecking order as Wolves book their trip to the beach and Cresswell picks up another injury.
Going differential with my captaincy also paid off, as many who captained Kane were left disappointed.
Going into the final 3 weeks, I’m sticking with my On The Beach rules, and am saying that Emile Smith Rowe is my Watchlist Update.
Two goals in two this gameweek, he has added more goal threat to Arsenal’s European push. With Saka playing in the most unclassified position I’ve ever seen, Smith Rowe has taken over the creative role.
