With the Premier League season racing towards its conclusion, the battle for relegation is hotting up. But with six teams well and truly in the dogfight, which teams contain FPL gems that might just keep them up, and give you an FPL boost? This article will go through each of the bottom six one at a time, looking at their form and fixtures and picking out any possible FPL targets from each side. Continue reading
With eleven game weeks left, which Premier League star player is the one to take you home: Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez (£11.6m) or Man United’s Zlatan Ibrahimović (£11.5)? Continue reading
Two weeks ago we released this article detailing the FPL team that could be made of all the teams confirmed to play in Gameweek 28. Since then, the FA Cup 5th Round has taken place, and we now know the exact line-up for that Gameweek. This article will adjust that team in order to take into account the new fixture, as well as what has happened with the other teams featured in the last couple of games, to help you plan your early game week 28 transfers. Continue reading
The Blank Game Week in game week 28 is a concern for us FPL Managers. While three fixtures are confirmed for GW28, the remaining seven fixtures having at least an 80% chance of being postponed. How can we plan our teams if we don’t know the players who will play!
In this two part series we try to answer that question for you. In part one I will look at only the players in the six teams that will play in GW28. This will allow you to choose some transfer targets now. Continue reading
Liverpool were one of the hottest sides in the front half of the 2016-17 season, but since the turn of the year their form has drastically declined. Premier League draws with Sunderland, Man United and Chelsea, coupled with defeats to Swansea and Hull, have left the Reds outside the top four, and with just three goals in three games. So is now the time to jettison your Liverpool players? Or will things pick up? I want to isolate the main problems Liverpool are having right now and look at if these problems can be addressed over the next few games, in order to make FPL recommendations. Continue reading
With the transfer window finally closed, the big question for FPL fans is: what’s the upshot? So in this article, I’m going to try and analyse the top transfer stories of the window, as well as their possible effect on FPL. Continue reading
The introduction of Big Sam Allardyce at Crystal Palace was a desperate move by the Palace board to steady the ship. After having an infamous awful 2016, Alan Pardew was sacked as Palace realised that they were in serious danger of relegation, with Pardew’s momentum leaving Palace sliding towards the bottom.
But with just one point in five games and only two goals scored, Allardyce is finding life at Palace much harder than he imagined. So let’s analyse the changes (or lack thereof) that Allardyce has made to Palace, compare the last five games of Pardew’s reign to the first five games of Big Sam’s reign, in order to see if there are any significant changes between the personnel, formation or tactics two, and identify what this means for FPL. Continue reading
A lengthy and busy article to start your weekend! We want to assess Everton and West Brom over their last ten games and looking ahead to the next ten, as they both have a nice set of fixtures coming up and to see if there are any players from either team that we would recommend you put in your teams. Continue reading
Manchester United have hit an upsurge in form over their last ten league games, with seven wins and three draws in that period. So in this article I want to analyse their defence and their midfield, and look at their prospects over the next ten league games, as well as whether or not I recommend taking on any United players into your FPL team beyond the obvious goalscoring threat of Ibrahimovic. Continue reading
So this article is all about building a wildcard team. With the wildcards restored for Gameweek 20 on New Year’s Day, and possibly some people still able to use their first half of the season one before then, here’s my opinion on what the best team to build for the second half of the season, assuming a budget of £104m. Continue reading
So having looked at which teams have the best attacking stats in the final third, I now want to look at which teams defend the final third best, and what possible reasons, or players, that we can isolate. So in order to do this, I want to look at which teams concede the least key entries, and which teams concede the least key entries per attack. Continue reading
In the Premier League, passing in the final third is critical. Whilst it’s not a statistic that necessarily converts to tangible results, it’s a good way of measuring which teams and players are likely to rack up more assists as the season moves on. Continue reading
