The top teams face some tricky fixtures in the coming week but their key performers are still worth banking on.

Leicester pulled off the biggest surprise of the week, handing defending champions Manchester City their second successive defeat. Manchester United saw off the Huddersfield challenge at home while Liverpool thumped Newcastle 4-0 to increase their lead at the top to 6 points. Tottenham capitalized on City’s misfortune to move up to second with a 5-0 rout of Bournemouth while Chelsea managed to overcome a fighting Watford in Vicarage Road. Brighton managed to hold Arsenal to a stalemate at the American Express Stadium.

Gameweek 19 Review

A very testing Gameweek for the team. Captain Andrew Robertson got 12 points  while his teammate Alisson got 6 points as Liverpool kept a clean sheet in their victory over Newcastle. Eden Hazard got 15 points courtesy of his two goals against Watford while Aubameyang managed to get 8 points. Aaron- Wan Bissaka got 8 points due to his performance in his side’s goalless draw against Cardiff while Richarlison got a goal after coming on from the bench which gave him five points. The remaining five players got 2 points each with the team finishing just above average.

Gameweek 20 Transfers

Robert Snodgrass has failed to deliver on a consistent basis after being brought in. He can be replaced with David Brooks or Solly March both of them who have hit a nice patch of form.

However, the transfer that is being made this week is that of Aymeric Laporte. The Manchester City center-back has failed to keep a clean sheet in six successive games and is transferred out for Toby Alderweireld. The Belgian center-back is a vital cog in Tottenham’s current resurgence.

Gameweek 20 Line-up

It is a massive week for Robertson and Aubameyang

3-4-3 is the formation used. Alisson Becker moves to the bench due to Liverpool’s tough fixture against Arsenal. Fabianski is in goal with Alderweireld, Robertson and Marcos Alonso starting in front of him as the three defenders. Wan-Bissaka’s Crystal Palace faces Chelsea while Matt Doherty’s Wolverhampton faces Tottenham, resulting in both of them being dropped to the bench. Vice-Captain James Maddison starts alongside Eden Hazard, Richarlison and Robert Snodgrass in midfield, with Ryan Fraser moving to the bench. Aubameyang and Callum Wilson start with Marcus Rashford given the captain’s armband for this week.

The headline-grabber of the week is the clash at Anfield between Liverpool and Arsenal. The former will look to maintain their unbeaten run while the Gunners will look to continue their push for a playoff spot. Wolves visit an in-form Tottenham while Manchester United face Bournemouth at Old Trafford. Manchester City will try to get out of their slump in Southampton with Chelsea awaiting a stern test at Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace.
