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?

      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.

        1. Rupert The Horse

          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

      • Reckoner.
          5 months, 3 days ago

          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.

          1. Rupert The Horse

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

            1. Reckoner.
                5 months, 3 days 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.

                1. Rupert The Horse
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  5 months, 3 days ago

                  Yeah I like that.

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

                5 months, 3 days ago

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

                  5 months, 3 days ago

                  Ha. Oh yeah.

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

                  1. meh
                      5 months, 3 days ago

                      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...

                          or maybe aguero if he chasing golden boot

                            City to draw with Wigan this weekend!

                                  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..?

                                        More so than VVD

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

                                            5 months, 3 days ago

                                            Martina is an interesting shout..

                                              So Martina might be nailed?

                                              1. Ason Willa

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

                                                    5 months, 3 days 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.

Many would have planned to sell him this week unless he happened to have been in top form. 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.

                                                                                          Keeping him, myself, as I have Azpi and Otamendi who are likely to be the first ones to go.
