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
      8 months, 16 hours ago

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

        Absolutely

      • Ëð

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

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 16 hours ago

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

      • kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 16 hours ago

        yes imo… even if you didn't have sterling

    3. TSILIKAFENEIAKOS

      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
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 hours ago

        A

      2. Ëð
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 16 hours ago

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

      3. Amey
          8 months, 16 hours ago

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

        • Long ball Larry
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 hours ago

          A

        • slove
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 hours 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.

          who is your 3 strike?

        2. slove
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 16 hours 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
            8 months, 16 hours 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
          8 months, 16 hours 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
            8 months, 16 hours 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
              8 months, 16 hours 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
                8 months, 16 hours 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
                  8 months, 16 hours ago

                  Would downgrading Alisson be a mistake do you think

                  1. Long ball Larry
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    8 months, 16 hours 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
                  8 months, 16 hours 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
                    8 months, 16 hours 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

          Obvious thing to do
          Hennessey to Fab

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

          1. Berbinho's Forehead
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 16 hours ago

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

            1. Witty Pun: Tʜᴇ Cᴀsᴜ…
              • 2 Years
              8 months, 16 hours ago

              No Richarlison/Sigurdsson?

              1. Berbinho's Forehead
                • 8 Years
                8 months, 16 hours ago

                I think Felipe has overtaken them as a prospect 🙂

                1. slove
                  • 1 Year
                  8 months, 16 hours ago

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

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            8 months, 16 hours ago

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

            1. g40steve

              What forwards?

                • 4 Years
                8 months, 16 hours ago

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

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

                1. Amey
                    8 months, 16 hours ago

                    Great for you
                    Holding WC for this long needs patience

                      8 months, 16 hours 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 !

              Looking to bring in a West Ham mid for Maddison.

              Would you go for Anderson or Snodgrass?

                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

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

                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)?

                  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.

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

                Some of you might find this one interesting. It reads horribly, as its translated from norwegian by google, but it's about Solskjærs wheeling and dealing and how little media attention it has gotten:

                  Good article, but it doesnt expose anything special. Compared to what agents like Jorge Mendes are doing in international football this is small fish.

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

                a) Man City
                b) Chelsea
                c) Tottenham

                  Neither is. Alonso/Trippier probably at some point.

                  Techy question for y'all...

                  Can I change the email associated with my account mid season?

                  I'm looking to close down that email account soon but if I do will I lose the ability to continue with my existing team history?

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

                    Nothing stopping you from logging in with the email even if its not in use - just don't forget your password 😀

                      Ah good point. You don't actually need an active email to reactivate the team next season if I remember correctly.

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

                          8 months, 16 hours ago

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

                        • Carcaju
                          • 4 Years
                          8 months, 16 hours 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

                          8 months, 16 hours 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
                            8 months, 16 hours ago

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

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

                          Alonso Robertson Laporte Doherty AWB

                              Save. Then maybe try get Andersen or Haz next week

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

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

                                  Other part of transfers is
                                  Hazard
                                  Sterling

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

                                    Shocking!

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

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

                                  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.

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

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

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

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

                                          Salah, Sterling or Sane for GW18 and 19?

                                            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

                                                C probably
                                                Jimmy/ings more enticing to me though.

                                                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)

                                              Sane or Richarlison?

                                                Sane out of those two is easy pick IMO

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

                                                  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.
