The Big Numbers – Gameweek 30

We check in with the Opta data next and roll out our usual post-Gameweek assessment of the weekend’s standout performers.

Huddersfield Town’s target man and a certain Liverpool winger both up their attacking potential ahead of a reduced Gameweek 31.

Meanwhile, big-hitters from the Leicester, Spurs and Arsenal midfields stake a claim for our upcoming Wildcards, while we also check out the impact of Chelsea’s new frontman at Stamford Bridge.

      Can somebody explain what's going on in GW31, I have only Liverpool and Everton players down as playing GW31?

      Is this right? / should I therefore captain one of my two Liverpool players, Salah/Firm?

          Welcome to Planet Earth! 😉

          Look at the fixtures. Capt Salah and get another Pool player

            No other strong options there i guess..

              Only 4 PL fixtures due to FA cup games. So yes- Liverpool captain is the obvious choice!

                Only 4 matches taking place. Means you only have 8 teams to select players from. You should get a minimun 6/7 players without a hit to do well or play the free hit chip if you have it.

                  Maybe consider using free hit to play 11

                  Is it just me, or are folk getting awful tetchy on here this week. Seems like the build up to the final GWs has finally pushed some over the edge.

                  Expecting some "Don't call me Tetchy" Kryten quotes in there for the Win.

                  Take a deep breath folks. It's all good. Unless you've spunked all your chips already. In which case, it isn't.

                            You have pickford, daniels, kiko,salah, shaq, wilson and firmino playing this week (kenny unlikely). You should be fine without needing to take hits. Just go haz to mane or one other defender to VVD if you have the cash.

                                    Just my opinion. I like Tosun so he should be on my team. Other options are King, mounie, rondon...

                                  Best striker for GW 32

                                  a) Mounie
                                  b) King (will he start)
                                  c) Rondon

                                  Alsno which one is worth -4

                                      King IMO

                                        I think King is a good shout - I would say I'm not overly keen though on hits this week. I'm not convinced there is much gain in it.

                                          Mounie vs King is a toss up in terms of ability to score and fixtures but Mounie is more nailed ...

                                                It's a tricky question with an impossible correct answer. It depends on many matters. I'm taking a hit from coleman to Karnezis probably. But I'm doing it with future gws in mind (he has no blanks, can replace Ederson in some gws, and I'll have a playing gk for the bench boost.

                                                So the answer will mainly depend on who you are taking of, and the future fixtures comparision for both.

                                                Current free hit first XI:

                                                Begovic
                                                Baines / Coleman / Van Aarnholt
                                                Stanislas / Zaha / Mane / Salah / Shaqiri
                                                Firmino / Wilson

                                                How could I improve this team?

                                                    3 months, 8 days ago

                                                    King over Wilson.
                                                    Got to be Butland in goal surely.

                                                        Why definitely Butland, Stoke haven’t been keeping that many clean sheets have they?

                                                        Stuck between the choice of getting a striker or a midfielder for GW31:
                                                        - Stanislas (or other option) to form a midfield of Salah, Pritchard, Walcott, Shaqiri
                                                        - King, Rondon or Wilson in for Kane, to form a front three of Firmino, Quaner (third striker option)

                                                        Can't get Mounie, as I have three Huddersfield with Quaner, Schindler and Pritchard.

                                                            No Tosun?

                                                            With those options I would go for a striker. Need do assess kane, and his next fixture is against Chelsea

                                                                Could go Tosun, as well. Have no Stoke defense, anyway. Or Sørloth - but that involves playing him against Schindler…

                                                                    1. TAT

                                                                              how many hits are you guys taking for that gw31 ??
