What the EFL Cup final means for FPL teams in Blank Gameweek 28

Fantasy Premier League managers will have to factor an EFL Cup final between Aston Villa and Manchester City into their plans for future Gameweeks.

The Wembley encounter clashes with the Sunday of Gameweek 28, forcing Villa and City’s matches to be postponed to a later (or potentially earlier date).

What does it mean for our Fantasy teams? Well, not only will the players of those two clubs be fixtureless that weekend, the assets from Sheffield United and Arsenal, their respective Blank Gameweek 28 opponents, will be out of action too.

Investment in the Gunners generally has remained at a minimum this season (although many are considering Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10.7m) in for Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) right now) but assets from the other three teams – Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), John Lundstram (£5.1m), Dean Henderson (£5.0m) and Jack Grealish (£6.7m) are all in a large number teams. Furthermore, many of us have value tied up in them too.

That means that you will find it hard to sell these types of players as they will likely have a corresponding Double Gameweek in the future and it could cost a lot to buy them back in. There have been murmurs of a possible Double Gameweek 25 or Double Gameweek 26 but I am ignoring that for now as there is nothing concrete at the time of writing.

With Blank Gameweek 31 expected to ravaged by FA Cup postponements, as detailed by this article, the Free Hit chip is probably best saved for then. So the challenge for Fantasy managers is how to best position themselves to take advantage of Blank Gameweek 28 using only free transfers and the odd hit(s).

Personally, when it comes to Blank Gameweeks, I’m a firm believer in quality over quantity. Rather than take hits to field a full 11, I try to look for the assets that can go big. Getting just one or two points for showing up is not a significant advantage.

Using the Season Ticker in the Members area, I have deleted the fixtures for the four blanking teams (Villa, Sheffield United, Manchester City and Arsenal).

As expected, Liverpool sit top of the pile and it goes without saying that you should look to optimise your quota of three players. Leicester’s Gameweek 28 fixture at Norwich means that Vardy is a potential captain candidate that week and should probably be retained despite his dip in form. Defensively though, the Foxes’ fixtures do not look very promising.

Southampton seem a great team to target at both ends of the pitch after their visit to Anfield in Gameweek 25 is out of the way. Not much needs to be said about Danny Ings (£7.0m) but the likes of Nathan Redmond (£6.2m) could be a good pick as he tops the expected goal involvement (xGI) (1.05) amongst their midfielders.

Newcastle, sitting second in the ticker, are unpredictable at the best of times but, in attack, Miguel Almirón (£5.8m), at under 5% ownership, could be an effective differential.

The fit-again Jamaal Lascelles (£4.2m) looks a better bet though, with the Newcastle captain carrying significant goal threat from set-pieces as detailed by Tom Freeman in his article this week.

Elsewhere, Burnley have decent fixtures leading up to Gameweek 28 and have rediscovered their mojo.

Chris Wood (£6.2m) has the potential to deliver across this run, only Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) (12), Raul Jiménez (£7.6m) (12), Gabriel Jesus (£9.5m) (15) and Roberto Firmino (9.6m) (17)  have taken more shots in the box than the Kiwi (11) over the last four Gameweeks amongst forwards.

Only Sergio Agüero (£12m) (six) has scored more goals than his three too. The Gameweek 27 fixture against Bournemouth looks the best time to hop on an emerging Wood bandwagon.

Chelsea are another team with a great fixture in Gameweek 28 (Bournemouth away) but the preceding fixtures are not the best. Bit of a ‘don’t buy don’t sell’ situation there at the moment with form also not the best, especially at home. Tammy Abraham’s (£7.7m) injury is a concern as well.

While the likes of Brighton and Palace have good fixtures on paper, they are inconsistent and don’t score many goals so I see the ceiling for their attackers as quite low. Wolves’ Europa League campaign resumes after the Leicester game and given how badly it dented their reliability early on in the campaign, I’m a bit wary of their assets as well. This might be overthinking on my part though, admittedly.

In summary – don’t be worried if you can’t field 11 during Blank Gameweek 28. It’s not worth shipping out reliable assets such as De Bruyne or Henderson for. Lundstram might be expendable though, depending on whether he loses his spot full-time to the resurgent Muhamed Bešić (£4.4m).

In terms of my own team, I am inclined to ship the injured Sadio Mané (£12.3m). Though he is tipped to be back for the Norwich game in Gameweek 26, Liverpool play Atletico Madrid away on the Tuesday. The turnaround time between fixtures is the shortest possible so I really don’t think Klopp risks aggravating the Senegalese’s hamstring by starting him twice in a space of 72 hours.

Firmino’s aforementioned stats of late have been great so switching to the Brazilian using the two free transfers is an option with someone like Redmond or Adama Traoré (£5.8m) to come in midfield. I’m more inclined to double-up in defence though with Andrew Robertson (£7.0m) coming in for Çaglar Söyüncü (£5.0m) and Son Heung-min (£9.9m) for Mané.

Only Salah (16) has taken more shots than the Korean’s 13 amongst midfielders for the past four Gameweeks. Robertson has created just one fewer chance (seven) than Trent Alexander Arnold’s eight over this period as well.

That would still leave me with two Manchester City players, Lundstram and Grealish, as well as Kelly which is not an ideal situation, but still manageable with three free transfers to use before the Gameweek 28 deadline. This is how I’m currently setup before the weekend’s team news.

Which FPL assets topped goal threat, creativity and clean sheets this month?

      Yep. Although I fancy Lunds over Williams this week

      1. Pad Randa
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Thinking same myself.

    2. linkafu
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Don’t like Haller but at least you have a striker that you can bench sometime

        1. linkafu

            For the same price you get Ings in

              Don't get me started on HOW I ended up with Haller.

        2. Gudjohnsen

          Ryan injured?

            No. Hence the joke.

      • linkafu
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Best option here?

          A- Grealish & Maupay

          B- Richarlison & Greenwood/Martinelli

          C- Martial & Ayew

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA

            A only because of Grealish

            1. linkafu
                2 months, 6 days ago

                You think Grealish will outscore Richarlison?

            2. JabariParkersEyelid
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Of those a but don't like any really.

                A I'd say

                  WC? Far too much uncertainty right now for me

                    • 2 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Lund, Rico, Soy, Mahrez (not nailed), Mane, Aurier, Maupay

                    Plus you don't have to start McCarthy & Ings this gw

                    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                      • 4 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Like I say, too much uncertainty at the minute though

                2. Pad Randa
                  • 8 Years
                  2 months, 6 days ago

                  Christ, no. He can field a decent enough team, I just wouldn't do Fernandez if I had to have a Newcastle defender.

                  1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    Why not? He’s our best defender. And the most attacking.

                    1. Coys96
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      This

                    2. Pad Randa
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      Lascelles is 0.2 cheaper. As for "most attacking", 2 goals and 2 assists isn't much. Lejeune and Clark both have two goals in far fewer minutes.

                      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        They aren’t nailed though

                      2. RAFA THE GAFFA
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        0.2 is nothing. Lascelles is an awful player tbh

                        1. Pad Randa
                          • 8 Years
                          2 months, 6 days ago

                          (Perceived) quality doesn't always correlate with FPL returns. Isn't Lascelles the captain, as well?

                          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
                            • 4 Years
                            2 months, 6 days ago

                            Yes. What’s the relevance in that? He shouts loads and is big unit.

                            1. Pad Randa
                              • 8 Years
                              2 months, 6 days ago

                              Solves the nailed dilemma.

                              1. RAFA THE GAFFA

                                What nailed dilemma? Haha. Anyways, GL mate

                              To be fair Rafa you're team.is OK. I just don't like Mahrez pick
                              Also lunds days are numbered I think.

                                Yeah. Just too much confusion right now. Which option would you pick above?

                    Why captaining Aub over Salah? Just a fancy?

                  Is Lucas Moura's spot safe for the next two would you say?

                      I think I keep him for next two. Hopefully Laporte and Fernandino won't feature...

                  C. Mane, Maupay and Vardy - Traore, Auba and Aguero - 4
                  D. Something else ?

                  If I go C ill wc before 28. Need to sort the keeper issue for 28 and 31 and will have lots of blankers If i get Auba or Aguero or both can get mane and vardy back in then. Thoughts ?

                    Bought mane at 12.4 so already lost 0.1 on him. dont have much value tied in Vardy either 0.2 i think

                  A) Taylor (Burnley)
                  B) Williams

                  Will rotate with O'Connell and Lascelles, if that makes any difference. Edging towards Williams!

                  Does the signing of fellow Scandinavian Berge mean the end for Lundstram?

                    long term probably it does
                    but he shd keep his place for the next couple of weeks

                  Mane out looks needed or could keep and bench and play Cantwell or upgrade him to Traore?

                    Mane to Grealish, DCL to Auba?

                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    What’s the value in Mane

                    2 week punt Son or Martial then back to Mane ?

                    • 1 Year
                    2 months, 6 days ago

                    I’m keeping - don’t see premium mids to replace him with. Son is possible I guess with Liverpool defence this week or nextv

                    Another option is to find Auba or Kun. But that likely means looking for a Liverpool defender leading to a triple transfer of forward mid defender over 2 weeks perhaps - seems inefficient for possibly one week out.

                    The other other option is to go Firmino. Not a fan really

                      2 months, 6 days ago

                      With their fixtures is there a risk of missing out on potential points not having 3 Liverpool ?

                        2 months, 6 days ago

                        Taking long view

                        The triple im set on - rightly or wrongly - is Mo Mane TAA. Think it’s differential and has highest ceiling. Prepared to miss a week now to hold it

                          2 months, 6 days ago

                          I see...

                          Think I’m doing Mane out as have no value tied up and getting in Robertson. Will make the swap back after Norwich

                          Will cost a couple of -4 though

                            Got him at base value so reluctant to move him in and out.

                            Just lost base value Vardy though. Don’t see him being great until 28 - there I am prepared to lose TV as I may well get him back

                      I don't think that's wildcard territory. Mane to Salah for now.

                        Do we think aguero will start at the weekend?

                          I'd say 50/50. Pep won't play him every game due to champions league coming up. City desperately want to win that cup and they are safe for a top four spot in the league so expect Aguero to be rotated from here on in..

                        Game week 26 fixtures......

                        Anybody know why 8 teams play on Feb 8th/9th and others play a full week later?

                          Winter break - teams get a short fortnight off. Fixtures broken up to provide footie

                            Ah, ok - big rest/advantage to the teams playing on 15th/16th then? Seems a bit bizarre

                          Anyone interested for Mahrez as a one or two week punt?

                            No room for short term punts

                            I never own him at the right time.

                            I have him. How interested I am is going to depend on whether his early benching yesterday was a portent to his going 90 on the weekend.

                              I would guess so. I would only be worried if I owned Sterling at the moment....he is dismal lately

                            I've never had him at all this season and have no plan's on getting him.
