Fantasy football tips for Double Gameweek 32. In this Fantasy Premier League series FPL Junior (four top 13k finishes in last four seasons) shares his FPL tips by selecting a team each week to try and score as many points as possible. In essence, he will be “free hitting” every single Gameweek. Rather than selecting longer-term options, he’ll solely focus on players with the best form and fixtures for the upcoming Gameweek 32.
Double Gameweek 32 Team
Patricio takes the gloves against Sheffield Utd. It’s a simple fixture pick with the Blades’ attack looking toothless. Wolves’ attack doesn’t look that much better but I think they’ll have control of the game and win to nil.
Shaw faces Burnley at home on Sunday with a rare full rest under his belt this week. Despite clean sheets drying up a small bit, his chance creation is still visible and he’s been unlucky not to have one since Gameweek 24. I’m not entirely confident about the clean sheet as Burnley always seem to nick a goal no matter what the result but Shaw’s ceiling is hard to ignore.
Reguilon returns to the side for another Spurs Double Gameweek. With Davies still not fit I think he plays both games, unlike Double Gameweek 26. It’s a complete fixture pick as Spurs look horrendous as a team and defensively but you’ve got to play the numbers this week and take a punt on a third Spurs player. His assist potential isn’t massive but it’s the best of a bad bunch in the backline. Southampton looks the best bet for a clean sheet but Everton have key players missing, like Calvert-Lewin.
Rudiger keeps his place this week and I was gutted to see his effort cleared off the line against Palace. I’m keeping faith as Chelsea’s backline was breached with the single shot on target against Crystal Palace. Brighton’s defence is much stronger than their attack and this should be the week where Chelsea finally get that clean sheet. I’d like to pick James but I could easily foresee Hudson-Odoi getting a game.
Mount keeps his place in the Hub XI. Chelsea have bounced back from their defeat to West Brom and were formidable in the first quarter of the game last week and it could’ve been a cricket score. Brighton have kept it tight recently and or not far off their opponents’ impressive defensive stats so I don’t think Mount will be in for a double-figure haul this week. That being said Chelsea will have enough quality to breach the Brighton backline and Mount should be involved somewhere along the line.
Burnley is Fernandes’ next fixture but despite his mediocre past few returns, I don’t think it’s worth overlooking the games highest owned player at 57.5% ownership.
Despite Spurs’ form, Son is no brainer for me this week. Everton have struggled at home this season and Southampton form has been as bad as Spurs’. If the midfielder can’t hit double figures this time around, I’ll be extremely surprised.
Salah is back in the XI and he just pips Jota despite the attacker getting a rest in Europe. Salah’s stats have bounced back from a dip (by his standards) and despite the latter providing better value, there’s not too much penny pinching needed at the moment with the array of value elsewhere. Leeds scalped their first win against the “big six” and they seemed to take a more defensive approach than their early season gung-ho approach. Nevertheless, Liverpool are playing much better away from home and I don’t see Leeds keeping a clean sheet. Seven goals from the Gameweek 1 fixture might be a stretch though.
Lingard completes the five man midfield and I wish I could have had about seven players in midfield this week. The man’s form is unbelievable as he’s constantly outperforming every attacking metric under the sun. The opposition, Newcastle, have improved going forward but defensively there’s still plenty of question to answer. I think there’s going to be goals in the game similar to the Hammers’ recent results.
Like Son, Kane is essential this week for his two games.
Iheanacho gets a starting birth this week after coming off the bench in Gameweek 31. The forward is providing brilliant value in order to afford the other heavy hitters and his underlying stats are outperforming his much more expensive strike-partners. West Brom are fighting till the very death to stay up but draws aren’t enough which will mean they can’t sit back and dig in for a draw which should hopefully give the Nigerian some chances. He had limited service last week but when he got a chance he was clinical.
Forster, Alexander-Arnold, Holding and Vydra.
Gameweek 31 Captaincy
It’s an easy choice this week to give Kane the armband.
I was gutted to leave Lacazette out last week and see him go onto brace and I’m unfortunately doing it again this week. The midfield picks look mouthwatering this week so I couldn’t fit a third forward in. Fulham’s defence is an upgrade on Sheffield Utd and the forward is racking up a lot of minutes. But with Aubameyang absent, he’s their focal point.
Man City players don’t feature this week and last week is a lesson for me. Despite thinking players are nailed on to start, City aren’t the same team when their second-string XI plays. Cancelo would be my choice from defence this week but I can see Villa getting a goal as Pep continues to ring the changes with the FA Cup in mind this time around.
