FPL Guru: How your team should look like in Gameweek 22
Written by: Ajay A K
Egyptian Mo Salah leads the pack with the highest number of points.
It was a routine day at the office for most of the big guns in the league. Arsenal overcame Fulham at the Emirates while Tottenham routed Cardiff at Wales. Goals from Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku helped Solskjaer’s Manchester United maintain their winning run against Newcastle United. Resilient Southampton managed to gain a point against Chelsea largely thanks to their keeper Angus Gunn.
The game of the week saw Liverpool succumb to their first ever defeat in the league this season at the hands of their primary title rivals Manchester City. The Cityzens won 2-1 thanks to goals from Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane with Firmino’s equalizer proving no more than a consolation.
Gameweek 21 Review
An enthralling and solid week for the team. All three strikers performed well with Marcus Rashford, Aubameyang and Wilson getting a combined total of 27 points. Midfielder Ryan Fraser got 12 points while defenders Marcos Alonso and Toby Alderweireld got eight and six points respectively for getting clean sheets. Captain Eden Hazard only got six points while the remaining four starters managed only seven points. The bench performed well with Robertson getting five points while Aaron-Wan Bissaka got six points.
Gameweek 22 Transfers
Marko Arnautovic has been in good form. He can be brought in for Callum Wilson who is a doubt for the next week. Other possible replacements for Wilson are Raul Jimenez and Glenn Murray.
James Maddison’s recent slump is also a cause of concern. The Leicester man can be transferred out for Roberto Pereyra or Luka Milivojevic.
However, since all players have a good set of fixtures no transfers are made.
Gameweek 22 Line-up
Aubameyang will lead the line alongwith Wilson
The formation is maintained at a 3-5-2. Alisson Becker comes in goal with Fabianski dropping to the bench. Andrew Robertson and Aaron-Wan Bissaka start in defense with vice-captain Marcos Alonso. Toby Alderweireld and Matt Doherty move to the bench because their sides face Manchester United and Manchester City respectively. Eden Hazard starts as captain in the midfield along with James Maddison, Richarlison, Robert Snodgrass and Ryan Fraser. Callum Wilson starts up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Marcus Rashford drops to the bench.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will hope his team can maintain their winning start under him as Manchester United gear up for their first real test since the managerial change. They travel to Wembley to face Spurs who will be looking to maintain their chances at the title. Chelsea face Newcastle at Stanford Bridge while Wolves arrive at the Etihad to battle Manchester City. Arsenal travel to West Ham and Liverpool will be looking to overcome their recent slump in form against Brighton in the Amex Stadium.
