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.

          1. Austin 3:16
              6 months, 12 days ago

              Thanks mate,how about haz to mane and kane to some other frwds(can you suggest a couple?)...

                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

            1. Hello there...
              • 1 Year

              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 ...

            Please choose which are worth a hit (-4)
            A - Stanislas
            B- mooy
            C- Pritchard
            D- zaha
            E- choup
            F- Allen
            G- bolasie
            H- none

              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?

            1. TheTinman
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 12 days ago

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

              1. Ian Davis
                • 8 Years
                6 months, 12 days ago

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

            2. romer

              hudd defender/ keeper?

          5. TAT
              6 months, 12 days ago

              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.

              1. romer
                • 1 Year
                6 months, 12 days ago

                No Tosun?

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

                1. TAT
                    6 months, 12 days ago

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

                    1. romer
                      • 1 Year
                      6 months, 12 days ago

                      In a gw like this you shoul not worry about getting player who play against each other. just bet on both sides. 1 or 2 players with more than 5 points can well make the difference this gw.

                      1. TAT
                          6 months, 12 days ago

                          True. Zaha could also be an option if you go down that route. Sørloth surely is due a goal. He got one disallowed against Chelsea, and hit the post on another chance - While Benteke got subbed.

                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 12 days ago

                  I want Mané and Stanislas. However with Kane and JAyew likely to further lose value would you recommend King and Firmino.

                  A) Mané & Stanislas
                  B) King and Firmino +0.2m SV

                    Get the two you think will score best don't worry about prices.

                      The money is important at this stage of the season

                        And the call is very close

                    get firmino regardless of value i d rather have him than mane

                  was set on bringing shaqiri then i listened to the scoutcast and more interesting options popped up, baines and zaha particularly.

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

                    1 or two. But I'm getting rid of waste (gk Pereira and Mbemba) to bring in players for gw 31 and for the gw34 bench boost

                  Which would you rather go WITHOUT in a GW32 WC team:

                  A) Alonso
                  B) City mid (D. Silva/ Sane)
                  C) Lukaku
                  D) Son
                  E) DDG

                  Basically playing around with options and I have this skeleton, with the question above determining the rest

                  Fabianski, XXX
                  Lowton, Duffy, Spurs def, XXX, XXX
                  Salah, Willian, Mahrez, XXX, XXX
                  Auba, XXX, Mounie/ Barnes

                    DDG to Ederson or Alonso to Monreal.

                    also not sure on Lukaku. Are you playing th FHC in 35? beware about the teams with a blank that gw.

                      6 months, 12 days ago

                      Think you've misunderstood my question - I was asking which of those options you would be happy to NOT have in a WC team - unless you're saying don't have any of Alonso, DDG or Lukaku and DO have City mid and Son?

                      Yes I'm planning FH in GW35

                    No way. Obiang to Zaha can get you points in the future so maybe that one. Don't go for a -12.
