How I plan to navigate the Christmas period

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for FPL managers. The festive fixtures are upon us. Over the next fourteen days, four Gameweek’s will be played out in a feast of football for us Fantasy enthusiasts.

This period can make or break your season. With deadlines coming thick and fast, it’s a good idea to make note of when those deadlines are or set reminders on your phone. Don’t be that person in your mini-league who does a Gerrard and slips up at a crucial time.

Rotation will be rife across all teams with the short turnaround between matches, so make sure you have bench players who can come in and do a job for you.

Is it time to invest in Manchester United assets?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken the reigns at Old Trafford following the sacking of Jose Mourinho. Options such as Anthony Martial (£7.3m), Paul Pogba (£7.8m), Marcus Rashford (£6.9m) and Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) are being talked about this week, given United’s kind run of fixtures: Cardiff (away), Huddersfield (home), Bournemouth (home) and Newcastle (away).

Getting in on their assets before others do could be a shrewd move but it’s always risky backing players before they’ve played for a new manager. We don’t know who Solskjaer will include in his first starting XI. It’s a ‘wait and see’ approach for me.

Not owning Eden proving hazardous

Eden Hazard (£11.0m) has returned attacking points in each of his last four appearances (one goal and five assists) to frustrate former owners. Out of all the premium assets, he’s arguably the must-have player for Christmas and New Year.

He’s got the form and the fixtures. Chelsea’s next five games are Leicester City (home), Watford (away), Crystal Palace (away), Southampton (home) and Newcastle (home).

If Maurizio Sarri continues to play Hazard as a ‘false nine’, Pedro Rodriguez (£6.3m) could become a decent option again. He’s started the last two, getting on the scoresheet against Brighton. It’s a situation to monitor. The Spaniard has six goals in just 805 minutes of playing time this season.

Saints reborn

Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side was excellent in the 3-2 win over Arsenal in Gameweek 17. Danny Ings (£5.4m) was the star of the show, bagging himself a brace. Off the back of that performance, he’s the second-most transferred-in player this week behind Leroy Sané (£9.7m) and Felipe Anderson (£7.4m). If he can stay fit, he could offer excellent value between now and the end of the season.

Jan Bednarek (£3.9m) could be another bargain. He’s started the last two and was outstanding against Arsenal, much to the frustration of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.5m) owners. It’s probably best to give it another few weeks before buying him to see if he is going to be the first choice and if Southampton can get to a stage where they are keeping clean sheets.

Hammers continue to shine

Lukasz Fabianski (£4.7m) has been FPL gold over the last four Gameweek’s, scoring twenty-seven points which included bonus in three out of the four games. He could well be a ‘set-and-forget’ goalkeeper for the rest of the campaign.

Anderson and Robert Snodgrass (£5.4m) are in blistering form and should continue to deliver as West Ham’s favourable fixture run continues.

There is talk that Marko Arnautovic (£6.9m) could return to action for the Southampton game on December 27th, in which case we should make sure we can get him back in our squads if we need to.

Transfer plans

The time has come for me to get a Man City midfielder, and why get one when you can get two? It is Christmas after all, I may as well treat myself.

With two free transfers, the plan is to ship Mohamed Salah (£13.1m), James Maddison (£6.8m) and Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.8m) for Raheem Sterling (£11.6m), Sané and the enabler Ings.

Fingers crossed it pays off.

Don’t forget it’s a Friday deadline this week!

Good luck to all in the next four Gameweek’s and have a Merry Christmas.

    Buzzing for this lad. Something that feels normal for him and his mate but inspirational for others.

    Hazard is a better choice than Sane if you've got Sterling, right?

    1. Long ball Larry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Hard to tell, it’s close, but will probably get more minutes in the coming weeks.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Absolutely

    3. Ëð
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I've got Sterling and Sane and pretty happy currently!

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I could have both and Haz if I did Auba, Rich, Siggy > Kamara, Sane, Haz

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      yes imo… even if you didn't have sterling

  3. TSILIKAFENEIAKOS
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    how to fund Eriksen to Hazard?

    A. Ederson -> Fab
    B. downgrade Alonso (e.g. Tripier )
    C. Wilson -> Ings or another budget forward except Chica

    1. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    2. Ëð
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A) I don't think city keeper is worth it currently

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A
      Would do it anyway.
      Getting Hazard is a big bonus

    4. Long ball Larry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    5. slove
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Definitely A

    Hey there here, I'm slowly slipping down my league after a series of bad transfers. Does anyone have any suggestions for me.
    I have 2 transfers and 0.1 to spend.

    Alisson
    Balbeuna Diop Doherty Robertson (wan bissaka)
    Salah Richarlison Sterling Hazard (billing)
    Success Aubameyang

    Thank you in advance for taking a look.

    1. conew
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      who is your 3 strike?

    2. slove
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      One of the first teams I’ve seen with 4 heavy hitters in it - maybe consider ditching one of them and distributing the funds throughout the team

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        3rd striker is Kamara, sorry. Who would you suggest to ditch?
        Im looking at maybe diop or success as the main weak links

    3. Long ball Larry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Maybe an unpopular choice but I’d get rid of salah for sane/Anderson then upgrade success

      1. nico05
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        That's a good shout I'm just afraid Salah is going to start hauling

        1. Long ball Larry
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          He could but he costs so much I’m not that concerned about not having him if the money is distributed well elsewhere. Sterling, sane, hazard can all match him easily for less

          1. nico05
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 year, 1 month ago

            I do see your point there I completely agree with the likes of Hazard been capable to match his tally's

            1. nico05
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Would downgrading Alisson be a mistake do you think

              1. Long ball Larry
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 year, 1 month ago

                I started with Alison and think he’s a good pick. If I still had him I’d keep him, but I don’t and I think fabianski is a good pick for less

            2. Long ball Larry
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Its what I’m hoping. Also Sane and ings leaves you with roughly 2 mill more than salah and success, if that 2 mill is spent well it would easily outscore salah and co. And you still have good captaincy picks.

              1. nico05
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                1 year, 1 month ago

                I will stick with him, maybe I should think about downgrading Salah, would allow for a much more balanced team that's for sure

              Mane & 3 million

  5. T96
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 1 month ago

    What to do? 1FT / 0.7 ITB

    Hennessey
    Robbo / Alonso / Femenia
    Haz / Sane / Eriksen / Snodgrass / Rich
    Aub / Mitro

    Hamer / Jimenez / Doherty / AWB

    Obvious thing to do
    Hennessey to Fab

    1. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes. Get Fab

  6. slove
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    If you were to wildcard now , who would make your team?

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Fabianski, van Dijk, Robertson, Hazard, Salah, Sterling, Sane, Felipe.

      1. Witty Pun: Not good at this…
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        No Richarlison/Sigurdsson?

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I think Felipe has overtaken them as a prospect 🙂

          1. slove
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Personally think a combination of Felipe and one of them is best - but depends on the way your funds are spread !

    2. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Haz, Sane, Sterling, Anderson, Snodgrass, Digne, Doherty, AWB, Bennett, Jiminez, Ings, Robbo, Fabianski is the ones I'd definitely accommodate

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        What forwards?

        1. Misteak
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Jiminez, Ings and for now Kane. Switch to Arnautovic or Kamara in a few weeks

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Fabs,Button
      Robbo,Doherty, Digne,Awb,lowe/zanka
      Sane,Sterling, Hazard,Salah,Ando/richa/snoddy
      Jimmy,Ings,Wilson

      1. slove
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I miraculously still have my WC left and this looks very similar to what I was thinking of doing !

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Great for you
          Holding WC for this long needs patience

          1. slove
            • 2 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            I think it was a series of lucky breaks that really helped me out , never had more than three transfers I wanted to make so it seemed like a waste !

    4. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Fab
      Luiz, Digne, Davies
      Sterling, Hazard, Sane, Anderson, Snoddy
      Kane Aguero

  7. Ëð
    • 4 Years

    On draft, received an offer of Son for F. Anderson... I'd be mad to accept that right?

    1. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Looking to bring in a West Ham mid for Maddison.

    Would you go for Anderson or Snodgrass?

    1. Ëð
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Anderson

    2. Long ball Larry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Anderson

    3. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Anderson is the obvious choice but I've got Snodgrass because he's done really well the past few weeks and he allows funds to be distrubuted around my team

    4. PurpleMonster
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Felipe Anderson

    5. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Anderson unless you need funds to upgrade elsewhere...in case you do - Snoddy

  9. PurpleMonster

      1. PurpleMonster
        • 3 Years

        Thank you so much!

  10. Fpl-king

    Laca + rich to Sané & Ings (-4)

    Only way for me to get a man city attacker in

    Worth it ?

    1. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Laca should start this GW

    2. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sounds good, dont trust Laca

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Seems bad

  11. Misteak
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    A. Auba + Rich + Siggy > Kamara + Sane + Haz (-4)

    B. Auba + Siggy > Ings + Haz

    1. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Not sure on Rich, but A looks good.

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah I'd like to keep him but it's either him or Sane. Can't have both.

  12. Lucky Z
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Ederson
    Alonso Bennett TAA
    Sane Hazard Paterson FAnderson
    Kane Auba Chicharito

    Hamer Hojbjerg AWB Duffy

    1FT, 0.8ITB

    Guys, how to sort the defence?

    A. Duffy and TAA => Zabaleta and Trippier -4
    B. Ederson and Duffy => Fab and Trippier -4
    C. Other

    Anyone know what the last week for using a wildcard is before the new one comes in? Is it before gameweek 20 (29th December) or gameweek 21 (1st January)?

    1. thischarmingman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      The Wildcard chip can be used twice a season. The first wildcard will be available from the start of the season until 29 Dec 14:00.

      last time you can use it is the 29th Dec @ 13:59 is the last time you can use it

    3. PurpleMonster

      GW20 the last chance to use it

      1. Sensible Scouter

        Thanks all. I have 2 FTs, plus a WC, working out how far ahead I need to plan. Answer - not very!

        1. thischarmingman

  15. DarkSideOfTheLoon
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Don't have a defensive cover from any of the following teams. Which one is most important:

    a) Man City
    b) Chelsea
    c) Tottenham

    Thanks!

    1. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years

      Neither is. Alonso/Trippier probably at some point.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Spur's IMO

    3. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B, C, A in that order

    1. kennethrhcp

      i'd say drop FPL an email, pretty quick replies to my knowledge

    b.2) Jimenez, Ings or Kamara?

    Wilson and Auba full mins? Other owners concerned? What are you doing if so?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Wilson i would be. Aubam still gets points if he comes on imo

    2. Carcaju
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'm actually getting rid of Auba. Failed big time last 2 gw and will probably be benched this one. After this his fixtures are not so great anymore. If I had a premium striker it would be Kane

    3. PurpleMonster
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Probably I'll ditch Aubameyang. Hazard will be in my team next GW.

    Any idea what to do with transfer this week (1ft, 0.9 itb) - still have wc (2 wk punt)

    currently playing Rich, Doherty and Kola who im not massively happy with.

    So should I:
    A) Diop -> Schindler/Targett and play over Doherty
    B) Kola -> Luiz/Davies, still playing Doherty
    C) Paterson -> Armstrong/schurle and play over Rich
    D) Save (Then Laca + Paterson -> Kamara + Hazard next week)

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Save. Kola will probs play and Rich could score... almost did against city twice

      1. abaalan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I want to but just thinking with wcing in next couple it seems a bit silly to save

  21. Iceball

    Fab Hamer
    Alonso Robertson Laporte Doherty AWB
    Salah Sane Son Fraser Højberg
    Kane Jimenez Mitro
    Save ft or any ideas?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Save. Then maybe try get Andersen or Haz next week

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Save

    People are selling Auba and Kane for Rashford and Ings. Seriously?

    1. thischarmingman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Kane + Auba for Rashford + Ings sounds dumb, yeah.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Other part of transfers is
      Hazard
      Sterling
      Sane
      Who are delivering right now so its not surprising mate

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yes, fancy selling Auba’s 2 points per game.

        Shocking!

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Nice knee jerk. Auba top stats player of the last 2 game weeks.

    3. PurpleMonster
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'll ditch Aubameyang for Hazard next GW (-4)

  23. FPL-(VAR)dy

    Are we expecting Emerys presser tomorrow??Or is it already done after Carabao cup like Europa??

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Should be tomorrow

  24. Tsparkes10

    So after many thoughts. My WC comes down to this.

    Fab/4.0
    Alonso/Doh/AWB/Digne/*
    FelipeA/Haz/Sane/*/*
    Jimenez/Rashford/*

    A) VVD, Rich, Salah, Ings
    B) Lovren, Mane, Camarassa, Kane

    A I like because seem quite nailed... only problem is leaves me with no Spurs and very cheap up top. More likely to play a 352

    B I like because one premium and both Spurs/ Liverpool cover... would obvs be playing a 343 then most likely. Also have money itb to get TAA for Lovren when need to.

    1. thischarmingman
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A with Sterling instead of Salah for the first few GW?

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Not too sold on Sane and Sterling tbh. Plus want Liver cover

      2. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        This. Wolves won't get spanked and Salah could get rested against Newc. Get Sterling.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Hmmmmmm

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

    3. Misteak
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'd rather have Luiz + Robbo than VvD + Alonso

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Food for thought. Saves a fair bit aswell.

  25. thischarmingman
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Salah, Sterling or Sane for GW18 and 19?

    1. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sterling

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sane

  26. Corgzzzz

    Guys, if you had a front line of Chico, Aubba and Lacca......would you swap Lacca for

    A) Aguero ( have both Sterling and Sane )
    B) Lukaku great fixtures new manager bounce
    C) Rashford as above
    D) Save FT

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      C probably
      Jimmy/ings more enticing to me though.

    2. Carcaju
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      This GW I would probably keep Lacca and try to get Kane instead of Auba (unless you lose a lot of value by selling Auba)

    3. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      A

  27. Misteak
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Sane or Richarlison?

    1. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sane out of those two is easy pick IMO

      1. Misteak
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Pa gde ste bre Srpski Dubajcani!

        1. Wild Card this...
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          U Dubaiu 🙂

    2. slove
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Sane is the better of the two , but depends on what you could do with the extra cash he costs over Richarlison

  28. DAVESAVES
    • 2 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Fabianski
    Digne Luiz Bellerin*
    Richarlison Sterling Sane F.Anderson
    Kane Lacazette Jimenez

    Steele Doherty Hojbjerg AWB

    Save FT and G2G?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yep
      You'll get autosub Doherty points too 😉

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Depends how much you have ITB...if funds allow...get Luiz for Bellerin.

    If ever we needed the Nephew of the guy who cleans the dugout at the Emirates to come forward it’s now. I hear he’s overheard Emery’s plan for Auba this weekend....

    (Spoiler alert: it’s unlikely this person exists)

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      They must have a dirty dugout then.

      1. Don Kloppeone

        Lol filthy. Ok I’ll take @EmiratesExpress

      Auba needs a rest at some pint. He did 90 mins on Wednesday in a gruelling match. Makes sense to do it in their easiest game over Xmas. I'd be amazed if Auba starts Saturday lunchtime.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Agree re starting but he often does magic from the bench...

      Auba doesn't exist?! I've been duped! I want my 11m back!!
