FPL Guru: How your team should look like in Gameweek 16
Written by: Ajay A K
Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser lead the assists leaderboard in the Premier League currently.
Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham put in dominating performances to gain all three points. Arsenal and Manchester United played out an entertaining draw in Old Trafford, in a game which saw the away side take the lead twice in either half only for the home side to equalize.
The upset of the week, however, happened in the Molineux where Wolverhampton came back from a goal down to create a dent in Chelsea’s title hopes. Ruben Loftus-Cheek had given the visitors the lead in the first half, but goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota helped the hosts to turn the match around.
Gameweek 15 Review
Gameweek 15 was a rewarding enterprise. Captain Richarlison stole the show with 20 points and the Bournemouth duo provided ample support. Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson had 12 points each due to their performances against Huddersfield. James Maddison had 10 points due to his equalizer against Fulham. Matt Doherty, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and Eden Hazard had five points each due to their assists in their respective games. Matthew Ryan had three points while Aaron-Wan Bissaka and Aymeric Laporte had one point each. Marcos Alonso, however, had a disappointing outing coming away with 0 points in his side’s disappointing outing against Wolverhampton.
The team finished way above average due to the performance form Richarlison Bournemouth’s Wilson and Fraser.
Gameweek 16 Transfers
David De Gea has kept only two clean sheets in 15 matches and therefore is transferred out. Possible options include Brazilian duo Alisson Becker and Ederson Moares. The former is chosen due to his kinder set of fixtures.
Sergio Aguero’s injury also gives the team a need for a potent attacker. Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang is chosen over Tottenham’s Harry Kane. The Gabon striker has a kinder set of fixtures and replaces the Argentine in the line-up.
