The Big Numbers – Gameweek 27

We turn to the Opta numbers next and roll out our usual post-Gameweek members’ article looking at some of the standout players across the previous round of fixtures.

Sergio Aguero, Jamie Vardy and Eden Hazard’s run of goals arrive under analysis, while we also cast an eye over Spurs and Everton’s recent displays in attack.

Meanwhile, cut-price midfielders from Brighton and Watford are finding form as both sides prepare for a run of four home matches in the next six Gameweeks.

    Morning all.
    Ling to Eriksen for a hit?

    1. OldBenKenobi

        I’m looking at Pogba to him but waiting on blanks to be confirmed first

        1. Rupert The Horse

          Would you not get him if he blanks? You’d still get three games out of him.

              I will but if a another decent option becomes available for 31 I might get them instead or even if spurs end up playing that just cements my decision

            Yeh.

            Alonso to vvd. Lings to Erik.

              That’s the move.

            I'd only get erikksen if he plays central. He's a machine in that position.

              I wouldn’t no before then.

                Know

          A) Alonso & Dunk > Van Dijk & BDavies
          B) Alonso, Son & Quaner > Robertson, Carroll & Firmino (-4)

          B would mean a switch from 3-5-2 to 3-4-3, I'd then have enough funds to do Dunk > BDavies the week after.

            Tough one. I’m looking to get in a Spurs mid.

            1. Reckoner.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              10 days, 7 hours ago

              My thinking is, already have Kane and if I'm getting BDavies in as well maybe Spurs overload.

              Been thinking and maybe the move to do are:

              This week: Alonso & Dunk > Robertson & BDavies
              then reassess the week after and maybe do Quaner + 1 Mid > Firmino + Bench fodder.

                Yeah I like that.

          City triple GW would be massive! But even if it does happen, how many players would play all three?

            If it's GW37 and they have already won the league (likely), probably no-one.

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Ha. Oh yeah.

              Yeah true. But the temptation to use the TC on them would be too much!

                Probably depends also on if they have FA Cup final and/or CL final coming up - if they do (and they have won the league) I can't see any of their big players playing 2 games within a few days, let alone 3!

                  I´d scoop Brahim Diaz for those games...

                    City to draw with Wigan this weekend!

                            It's complicated

                        Ssshhhh ... but getting 3 City in on a WC for a triple game week BB in 37 would work fine - probable get 180 minutes on average out of each of the three players ... but it seems most managers on here are untangling their BGW31 team with their WC in GW32 😉

                            McArthur a good 5th mid for bench but wait and see if you starting 11 need attention first after FA cup games

                            Guys, who in your opinion are the best differential defenders for the upcoming weeks..?

                              Vertonghen
                              More so than VVD

                            2. Ason Willa

                              10 days, 7 hours ago

                              VVD, Mustafi, Martina - all low ownership, nailed with excellent fixtures until the end of the season

                              1. KeepCalm
                                  10 days, 7 hours ago

                                  Martina is an interesting shout..

                                    10 days, 7 hours ago

                                    So Martina might be nailed?

                                    1. Ason Willa
                                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                                      10 days, 7 hours ago

                                      He's played 90 minutes a game since GW14. I don't see Baines replacing him any time soon.

                                          10 days, 7 hours ago

                                          Baines is club captain and a Toffees legend. He is straight back in when fit

                                            I agree, so my original statement 'to the end of the season' doesn't can't apply to Martina, but KeepCalm wants someone for a couple of weeks - so, perhaps its still a decent shout.

                                              Actually, on reflection, that would leave you with a v. weak defence.

                                                          Wanderlust is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me.

                                                      Ooh maybe try ‘In a World’.
                                                      Love that film. It’s a comedy with just enough romance so that your missus won’t see straight through you. Both films mentioned have Lake Bell as the lead, one of my favourite actresses.

He was worth the expense/risk with better fixtures, but less so without. The injury and rotation threat just makes the sale a bit easier.
