Sheffield United rise to the top of the FPL Gameweek 16 Form vs Fixture Chart, with Liverpool's blank Gameweek looming.
The fixture chart uses the site fixture ticker, focusing on attack for the next four Gameweeks. The form charts also have attack in mind, studying the number of goals scored per game, while reflecting the format of the site ticker.
Sheffield United sit on top of the fixture chart, with Aston Villa and Crystal Palace not far behind. Aston Villa have scored six goals in their last eight games, figures that they are likely to improve upon once they get their clash with Leicester City out of the way this weekend. Jack Grealish looks to be the most appealing fantasy asset: he has one goal and one assist from his last three starts. John McGinn could come back into our thinking after a quiet spell: he has created eight chances in his last four.
Liverpool are hampered by their looming blank in Gameweek 18, when they travel to Qatar for the FIFA Club World Cup. There's some other big names down the bottom end of the chart, including Manchester City. I tend to view Manchester City assets as fixture proof though, unless the opponent is Liverpool, so don't be too put off by their upcoming fixtures which are all winnable. The picture looks less promising for Arsenal.
Liverpool top the form chart, having scored twelve goals in their last four games. That kind of form makes up for a gap in the fixture schedule: it's an ideal time to consider a plan for dealing with Gameweek 18. Those without a wildcard would be wise to strengthen their benches, so that Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane can warm them for just one week. Mo Salah could be a promising option for the next couple of games: he's scored every time he has played Bournemouth.
Manchester United and Manchester City make up the chasing pack, which compensates for their poor ranking in the fixture chart. Kevin De Bruyne or Raheem Sterling are the favourable picks from City, and the double up could still prove fruitful over this spell. Gabriel Jesus has two goals from two starts, but keep an eye on a potential return for Sergio Aguero which could affect his gametime and potentially impact Sterling's positioning and output too.
Marcus Rashford is the key appealing asset at Manchester United: whether he can dislodge the likes of Vardy, Abraham, Jimenez or Ings from our squads is another matter though. He's managed returns in four consecutive games, scoring three an assisting two, with spot-kick duty supporting him too. He had six shots against Spurs, with four of them on target: he really could have delivered even more here.
