FPL Guru: How your team should look like in Gameweek 21
Written by: Ajay A K
The duo of Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser is performing exceptionally well in the Premier League this season.
Tottenham’s resurgent title-challenge hit a major roadblock when Wolverhampton handed Spurs a comprehensive defeat at Wembley. Liverpool capitalised on the Spurs slip-up to increase their advantage at the top by thrashing Arsenal 5-1.
The result was a loud statement on the strength and depth, the Reds have. Manchester City managed to eke out a victory in Southampton after two consecutive losses, while Chelsea overcame Crystal Palace in Selhurst Park. Manchester United continued their revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a stellar defeat of Bournemouth at Old Trafford.
Gameweek 20 Review
A disappointing Gameweek for the team. Captain Marcus Rashford managed to pull the team up after his goal and assist saw him get 22 points. Marcos Alonso got 5 points as Chelsea kept a clean sheet in their win against Crystal Palace.
Eden Hazard only managed 3 points while Richarlison, Fabianski, Aubameyang, and Wilson managed only 2 each. Robertson and Alderweireld got one point each. James Maddison and Robert Snodgrass returned with zero points, with the former missing a penalty while the latter got minus points for a yellow card. The tea finished below average despite captain Rashford’s exploits.
Gameweek 21 Transfers
Sergio Aguero’s return from injury and Harry Kane’s hot form means that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can be substituted. However, both the replacements have a difficult set of fixtures coming up.
Robert Snodgrass is also underperforming at the moment. Abdoulaye Doucoure and David Brooks are potential transfers that can be made, so as to replace the West Ham midfielder. However, no transfers are made this week.
Gameweek 21 Line-up
The team look deadly and is expected to gain major points in FPL this week
The formation has been changed to a 3-5-2. Lukasz Fabianski maintains his spot in the goal, with Alisson moving to the bench due to Liverpool’s away fixture against Manchester City. Andrew Robertson and Aaron-Wan Bissaka also occupy the bench with Toby Alderweireld, Marcos Alonso and Matt Doherty starting.
All five midfielders start with Eden Hazard donning the captains’ armband. In attack, Marcus Rashford sits out due to his groin strain, with Callum Wilson and vice-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starting in attack.
Etihad Stadium is where all eyes are at with Manchester City aiming to pull within four points of Liverpool by handing the away side their first defeat of the campaign. Newcastle await Manchester United while Tottenham visit Cardiff to get their title push back on track.
Arsenal welcome Fulham to the Emirates while Chelsea will look to leave considerable distance between them and the fifth-placed Gunners when they face Southampton.
